BREAKING: Terrifying Twist To Drone Attacks – Report Warns ISIS Is Preparing For This Horror

When you think about drone strikes and ISIS terrorists, you probably picture those powerful images of a nondescript building or a truck convoy or an ammo arsenal being blown to smithereens by the blast from an unmanned aerial vehicle flown on a kill mission by the U.S. military. But now, according to counterterrorism experts, there could soon be a terrible twist introduced to that familiar scenario.

According to an article just published in the British newspaper Express, ISIS is now plotting to use drones of a far different kind to drop explosives onto crowds at major sporting and cultural events. The delivery vehicles for the terrorists’ bombs, according to the Express article, would be the rather small, inexpensive, readily available commercial drones widely used to take aerial video.

As the article in the UK paper notes:

Defence chiefs fear they could launch a multi-drone attack carrying several bombs, even using airborne cameras to film the bloody carnage below for twisted propaganda videos.

Senior MI5 [security service] figures believed that Isis has already tested how much plastic explosive the flying machines can carry, getting as far as experimenting with detonation devices.

What could make this report that Islamic terrorists are developing ways to use cheap, remote-controlled drones to cause mass casualties even more immediately concerning is the explosion in worldwide sales of small, commercial drones. A Wednesday article in Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) cites staggering numbers for predicted drone sales that could mean it would be virtually impossible to stop acquisition and use of the potential death machines by ISIS.

“Sales of commercial-grade unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are set to soar over the next 10 years, driven by applications such as filmmaking, mapping, prospecting and disaster relief,” according to the IBD report.

“Market research firm Tractica predicts that worldwide shipments of commercial drones will increase from 80,000 units to nearly 2.7 million units in 2025.”

Regarding the terrorist organization’s development of drone-borne bombs that could wreak havoc by delivering a terror strike from the sky, the article in the UK paper quotes a source in the British security service MI5:

Isis is obsessed with re-creating the horror of 9/11 and believes this may be possible by launching a multi-drone attack on large numbers of people in a synchronised attack.

Muslim Imam Reveals A Terrifying Secret About Mosques In One Of America’s Largest Cities

A moderate imam formerly based in the Boston area recently reflected on being ousted from his position at one of the area’s most influential Muslim centers after warning about a radical shift in its theology for almost a decade.

In an interview with Fox News published Tuesday, Imam Talal Eid said increasing radicalism at the Islamic Center of New England, where he served from 1982 through 2005, pitted him against the center’s board of directors in the late 1990s. Eid had been in charge of religious teaching at the center’s mosques, but was ultimately forced out by Dr. Abdul-badi Abousamra, once a respected endocrinologist and president of the 1,500-member center. Abousamra now resides in Doha, Qatar, and is on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s terror watch list.

“At times, I was fearful for my safety,” said Eid, a former member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom who now leads a Toledo, Ohio, mosque. “When I would stand up for what I believed in, and there was a clash, you see how I could be scared.” The three mosques associated with the Islamic Center of New England have all had connections to several known and suspected terrorists, including Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev–the brothers responsible for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing–and Usaama Rahim, the 26-year-old man slain by officers earlier this year after brandishing a knife in a parking lot and allegedly plotting to behead police.

Abousamra’s son, Ahamad, a graduate of Northeastern University, left the U.S. and began training in Middle Eastern terror camps and aiding al-Qaeda, according to law enforcement officials. The younger Abousamra was being investigated for terror-related charges which led to an indictment, but he left the U.S. altogether for Syria in 2006. It is believed he now runs the social media operation for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The elder Abousamra, who has a $50,000 bounty on his head, is rumored to have died in a recent airstrike. But the FBI did not confirm that. “Although aware of the reports, the United States government has not yet confirmed any change in the status of Ahmad Abousamra,” the FBI told Fox News. “He will remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List until the time a confirmation in change of status is made.” The outlet also breaks down what happened to Eid’s successor at the center, Muhammad Hafiz Masood:

A year after Eid left, Masood fled the U.S. after being arrested for visa fraud. He resurfaced in Pakistan, where he is now spokesman for the Pakistani terrorist organization Jamaat-ud-Dawah, a group founded by his brother, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. Saeed also founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani terrorist group behind the 2008 coordinated bombings in Mumbai that killed 164 and wounded hundreds more. Law enforcement sources say the two groups are one and the same.

As for Eid, he hopes more like-minded people will speak up against the extremists. “Do we need to wait for a tragedy to happen?” Eid asked. “We need to allow more moderate Muslim voices so that life can go smoothly in our society.”

What Franklin Graham Just Called For To Stop Domestic Terror Threat Will Infuriate Obama

It’s one of the more popular recent posts on the official Facebook page of Rev. Franklin Graham — the evangelist’s call to “stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S.” until the threat from radical Islam can be “settled.” As of this writing, Graham’s proposal that he indicated was sparked by his belief that America is “under attack by Muslims at home and abroad” has received more than 167,000 “likes” and been shared close to 58,000 times.

The website Christian Post notes that the Muslim immigration ban called for by the head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has been condemned by several Christian leaders.

The article cites their “concern that the minister is distorting the message of Christianity and promoting fear of those who follow Islam….” Graham posted his recommendation to stop all Muslim immigration the day after a suspected Islamic terrorist gunned down four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga, where a fifth shooting victim later died.

Below, you can see for yourself the entire anti-immigration post by Franklin Graham in which the evangelist with more than 2 million Facebook followers warns: “Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized.”

ABC News has reported that the 24-year-old gunman in the Chattanooga attacks was apparently radicalized only in recent weeks or months, having done “online research for militant Islamist ‘guidance’ on committing violence that he may have believed would wipe away in the afterlife his sins on earth including drug and alcohol abuse….”

Many of the comments left on Graham’s Facebook page in reaction to his call for a ban on Muslim immigration have been highly negative and extremely critical of the evangelist. A small sampling of the online criticism appears below:

NO, NO, NO…..you are not under attack from Muslims……..these men were attacked by a sick extremest. Stop your hatred!!!

What part of your Bible influences your bigotry? Shame on you.

Alienating people is not generally considered an effective ministry tactic.

As for Muslim immigration to the United States in recent years, an article published by National Review claims that “the United States seems increasingly to be turning toward Western Europe’s most undesirable demographic trends” when it comes to people of the Muslim faith moving to America.

In 1992, 41 percent of new permanent residents in the United States — green-card holders — hailed from the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and North Africa, or sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Pew Research Center. A decade later, the percentage was 53 percent. Over that same period, predictably, the number of Muslim immigrants coming to the United States annually has doubled, from 50,000 to approximately 100,000 each year. In 1992, only 5 percent of Muslim immigrants came from sub-Saharan Africa; 20 years later, it was 16 percent. Of the 2.75 million Muslims in the United States in 2011, 1.7 million were legal permanent residents.

The National Review article notes that the Council on American-Islamic Relations says there are some 7 million Muslims now living in this country.

CNS News cites a study by the Center for Immigration Studies that points to the very large increase in Muslim immigration — something that President Obama has hailed in recognition of the “contributions” of Muslim immigrants to the building of America.

“According to numbers crunched by the Center for Immigration Studies based on data from the Census Bureau’s Factfinder database,” reports CNS News, “the immigrant population from predominantly Muslim countries has grown from 1.7 million in 2000 to 2.7 million in 2013.”

What’s your opinion? Was Franklin Graham right to call for a total ban on Muslim immigration in light of the terror threat from radical Islam? Join the conversation by leaving your comment below.

WATCH: Her 2-Minute SCORCHING Of Obama Went Viral, Here’s Why She Spoke Up

One America News Network’s (OANN) Tomi Lahren appeared on Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends Tuesday to explain her reasoning behind her “Final Thoughts” video which has gone viral. The video pertained to the attack in Chattanooga, Tenn., which left five military service members dead which Lahren attributed to “radical Islam” instead of “workplace violence.”

“I think it’s what every American is thinking, they just don’t have the platform to say it. Everybody is busy in their daily lives, working hard, average hard working Americans,” Lahren explained to co-host Brian Kilmeade. “They’re thinking it in their minds. They’re seeing it on TV. They’re telling it to their friends and family. They’re saying it at the dinner table, and I was just the one who came out and said it on a platform and it resonated.”

Muhammad Abdulazeez was slain last Thursday after allegedly killing four Marines and injuring several more, including an active-duty Navy reservist who died two days later. Kilmeade asked Lahren why no one else is calling Abdulazeez a Muslim extremist. Lahren explained when she first learned about the incident, it made her “mad as hell.” She continued by wondering, “Where is the leadership out of the White House?”

I don’t care if you’re a Republican, you’re a Democrat, you’re independent, you’re black, white, Christian – I don’t care. Come out, be a leader, stand in solidarity with our armed forces. That’s an American thing to do.

Just as she did in her initial video, Lahren expanded on her family connections to the military, including her grandfather, her uncle and her cousins, who served or are serving in the United States Marine Corps, Additionally, Lahren’s boyfriend is serving overseas as a Navy SEAL, “This is personal for me,” she said.

I had this conversation the night before when I still had communication with him being deployed in the Middle East and I said, ‘Did you hear about Chattanooga?’, and he said ‘Yes, I heard some headlines, What’s going on?’ And I told him, I said, ‘Honestly, we’re here in San Diego, this is a military town, you’re in the Middle East right now, and I fear that this same thing is going to happen in San Diego.

Kilmeade concluded by asking Lahren how she came to have “well formed opinions,” especially at the age of 22. “It’s an American patriotism,” Lahren responded. “It’s something that I was born with. I grew up in the midwest. I grew up in South Dakota. My family is patriotic.”

I’m an everyday American. What I would like to get out there is that everyday Americans feel this way. Everyday 22-year-olds feel this way. I’m just the first one to say it on the platform that I did and God Bless America, I’m so glad that it’s resonating.

Watch: News Anchor Gets Fed Up With Obama And Says What Everyone’s Been Thinking In EPIC Rant

Tomi Lahren, the anchor of On Point with Tomi Lahren on One America News Network (OANN), ended her program Saturday by excoriating President Obama affirming the attack in Chattanooga was the result of “radical Islam” and not “workplace violence.”

Lahren, originally from Rapid City, S.D., was given the opportunity to host a show on OANN at 22-years-old last September after graduating from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. “Four United States Marines are now dead,” Lahren said. Climate change didn’t kill them. “Lack of free community college didn’t kill them. The income gap, wage inequality — nope, not those things either. Gay marriage? Nope. Oh, white racism? Not that either. So what did?”

President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will: radical Islam. This is not workplace violence. This is not a criminal act with motives unknown. This is terrorism. The suspected shooter, Muhammad Abdulazeez, a devout Muslim. Do I care that he seemed like an all American young man? Do I care that he was good at mixed martial arts or a smart, quiet guy? Do I care that his high school friends wouldn’t classify him as ‘overly religious?’

“No, I don’t give a flying you know what about any of that,” Lahren continued. “Was he linked to ISIS or al-Qaeda or Hamas, or any of the 15-plus offshoot terrorist groups? Does it matter? I’m sorry, but radical Islam is becoming the rule, not the exception. Yesterday’s moderate is today’s terrorist. I care that this SOB killed four of our United States Marines, and I care that our commander-in-chief is more concerned with Muslim sensitivity than the honor and sacrifice made by these Marines.”

Now this is the twenty-first time our military men and women have been attacked here at home. This is not a Middle East problem, this is an American problem, and I’m sorry but I can’t sit here and let this go. Not anymore.

Lahren went onto say she comes from a family of Marines, which includes her grandfather, her uncle and her cousins. Since Lahren’s program was taped, a fifth victim, Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith, an active-duty Navy reservist, died early Saturday. Smith’s death joins the four Marines: Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, Lance Cpl. Skip Wells and Sgt. Carson Holmquist.
