Beware 'stealth jihad' in America

By Paul Bremmer In today’s increasingly dangerous world, many Americans are on alert for the next terrorist attack by a Muslim jihadist. But when it comes to the radical Islamic threat to the American homeland, there’s much more to be concerned about than simply terrorism, warns David Kupelian, journalist and bestselling author of “The Snapping of the American Mind.” “Since September 11, 2001, everybody has been focused on terrorism – buildings coming down, fears of biological and chemical weapons attacks, and we do have occasional attacks,” Kupelian said during a recent guest appearance on “The Glazov Gang” Internet TV show. “But while that’s going on and distracting our attention, there is another front in this war.

ISIS will 'Inevitably' Gain and Use Weapons of Mass Destruction

By The Clarion Project The former commander of Britain's chemical, biological and nuclear weapons regiment said ISIS will eventually launch such an attack. It is inevitable the Islamic State will acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, according to the former head of the British Army’s nuclear team. Dr. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon was formerly commander of Britain’s Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) regiment. He told the Global Resilience Conference in London it is “only a matter of time” before ISIS launches an attack on a major city with weapons of mass destruction. “ISIS have made it known they want to acquire weapons of mass destruction,” he said. “They run a sophisticated and successful psychological warfare campaign and are now basing that on CBRN weaponry – the ultimate weapon in the terrorist arsenal.” According to Bretton-Gordon, the Islamic State already possesses chemical weapons such as mustard gas. They also have limited amounts...
