Australia foils beheading terrorist plot; Muslims protest raids; Islamic State takes more villages; What about al-Qaeda?

Australian Sgt. Leonard Siffleet Beheading (1943)


Australia made its largest anti-terrorism raid ever today:

September 18, 2014

The emerging reality of terrorism in Australia struck home just before dawn on Thursday when more than 800 police launched synchronised raids on houses and vehicles across Sydney’s west and north-west, and Brisbane’s south.

The raids foiled a plot involving a man believed to be Australia’s most senior Islamic State member who called contacts in Australia and asked them to carry out a campaign of random public beheadings in Sydney and Brisbane, the ABC understands.

Mohammad Ali Baryalei, a former Kings Cross bouncer and part-time actor, is understood to have made the instruction to kidnap people in Brisbane and Sydney and have them executed on camera. That video was then to be sent back to IS’s media unit, where it would be publicly released.

Omarjan Azari, 22, from the western Sydney suburb of Guildford, was one of 15 people detained during the operation in Sydney and is accused of conspiring with Mr Baryalei and others to act in preparation or plan a terrorist act or acts, court documents show. …

The charge relates to activity from May this year, well before the Federal Government publicly spoke about sending troops to fight IS in Iraq.

“The law enforcement authorities became aware of information in May of this year that a group of people in Sydney were at least talking about plans to carry out random attacks on individuals in Australia and they were kept under surveillance,” Federal Attorney-General George Brandis told Macquarie Radio. …

About 200 people from Sydney’s Muslim community held a protest against the raids outside Lakemba station on Thursday night.

SYDNEY—Australia has launched its biggest-ever counter-terrorism operation at homes and businesses in Sydney and Brisbane. Officials say 800 heavily armed police officers have taken part in the raids, in which 15 people have been arrested so far and one formally charged.The Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the series of anti-terror raids across Sydney and Brisbane were prompted by a senior Islamic State militant ordering “demonstration killings” in Australia.

Media reports have alleged that conspirators planned to abduct a random member of the public in Sydney, drape them in an Islamic State flag and behead them on camera.

Hundreds of police officers raided properties across two of Australia’s biggest cities, Sydney and Brisbane.

A 22-year-old Sydney man Omarjan Azari faces charges of conspiracy to prepare for a terrorist attack on Australian soil.

Prosecutors told the court the alleged offense was “clearly designed to shock, horrify and terrify the community.”

The New South Wales police commissioner Andrew Scipione says the raids succeeded in making Australia safer. …

On Sunday, Prime Minister Abbott said Canberra would send 600 troops and warplanes to join U.S.-led efforts to stop the advance of Islamic State militants in Iraq.

Australia is clearly deeply affected and now more in Australia and others realize this.  Many in the Islamic community in Australia are concerned that not only are they being harassed by the government, that more individuals will take actions against them and that all of this may result in more Muslims turning against Australia.  This is consistent with various biblical prophecies (Psalm 83:3-8; Deuteronomy 32:25; Psalms 73:12,19).

I do believe that Australia is is subject to terrorist attacks, and will be attacked internally by terrorists and then eventually taken over from outsiders consistent with the following prophecy:

25 The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be terror within (Deuteronomy 32:25)

The above also applies to the USA, UK, and others.

Of course, it is in the Middle East that the Islamic State is doing the most terrorism, and it has apparently succeeded in taking other villages which, if it holds to its past actions, will result in murder and other forms of terrorism to most in them:

BEIRUT—Islamic State fighters captured villages and besieged a Kurdish city in northern Syria near the border with Turkey on Thursday in a major assault that prompted a commander to appeal for military aid from other Kurds in the region. …

In an advance near the border with Turkey, Islamic State fighters using heavy weaponry including tanks seized a group of Kurdish villages near the city of Ayn al-Arab, also known as Kobani. The Observatory said 21 villages had fallen to Islamic State fighters advancing on the city.

“We’ve lost touch with many of the residents living in the villages that ISIS [Islamic State] seized,” Ocalan Iso, deputy head of the Kurdish forces in Kobani, told Reuters via Skype.

He said the group was committing massacres and kidnapping women in the newly-seized areas. …

Redur Xelil, spokesman for the main armed Kurdish group in Syria, the YPG, said Islamic State had encircled Kobani.

The group was using tanks, rockets and artillery in the attack. “We call on world powers to move to halt this barbaric assault by ISIS,” he told Reuters via Skype.

If the Kurdish city is taken over, it will not end well for the Kurds within it.

Despite USA, Australian, and other military efforts, the Islamic State is moving forward in some areas.  And while I remain of the view that the Islamic State will not lead the final King of the South of Bible prophecy (Daniel 11:40-43), I do believe that the actions of groups like the Islamic State are leading the West to push for a confederation to deal with them that can lead to the rise of the aforementioned King of the South (watch also the video Obama Administration Pushing for an Islamic Empire?).

The Islamic State is not the only threat. Notice the following related to al Qaeda:

September 18, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) may be dominating the headlines and stealing attention with its prolific propaganda, but CBS News’ Bob Orr reports, another group in Syria — one few have even heard of because information about it has been kept secret — is considered a more urgent concern.

Sources tell CBS News that operatives and explosives experts from Osama bin Laden’s old al Qaeda network may again present an immediate threat to the U.S. homeland.

At two dozen foreign airports, U.S.-bound passengers are undergoing enhanced security screening. Agents are searching for hidden explosives. Laptops and phones with dead batteries have been bannedfrom flights.

Great Britain raised its national terror threat level, and the FBI is tracking American jihadists who may return home.

Sources say it’s due to the emerging threat in Syria, where hardened terrorists loyal to al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri are working on new, hard-to-detect bombs… al Qaeda remains obsessed with bombs, airplanes, and attacking the United States.

There are multiple terrorist groups that pose threats.

It will seemingly take a combination of fighting, social, and political pressures to somewhat reign in the actions of the extremists groups.  In addition to taking military and anti-terrorism actions, the USA keeps pressing for regional and international solutions to do this (watch also the video Obama Administration Pushing for an Islamic Empire?).  Regional blocks are in the process of rising up that the Bible refers to as the King of the North (a European block) and King of the South (North African/Middle East block).  Those sides will make a deceptive deal together (Daniel 11:27) and a deal that will not end well for the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada (Psalm 83:2-8; Daniel 11:39).

Eventually, a time of a temporary peace will come (see The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27), but not too many years later Australia, the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand will be overtaken (Daniel 11:39).  The Islamic nations in North Africa will also later be taken over themselves (Daniel 11:40-43).

Interim steps by governments and leaders will have various affects, but they will not prevent the coming of the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord.  The terror raids in Australia have woken some people up, but the real threats facing Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK, and USA are larger than most truly still can accept.
