The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Middle East Report President Hollande Was The ISIS Target Nov.15, 2015

Friends, the Islamic terror attacks in Paris clearly demonstrate the abject failure of gun control. If some of the French citizens were armed not as many people would have been murdered.

French police have issued an alert for the arrest of Belgian-born Abdeslam Salah in connection with the Paris attacks. "This individual is dangerous, do not interact with him,

The geography of the six Paris locations targeted by terrorists Friday night points to precise advance planning in support of a primary target, namely, French President Francois Hollande, while at the same time sowing bloody havoc in the French capital, frightening tourists away and shaking the French governing system to the core. The cost in lives has not been finally tallied. Estimates range from 127 to 153 with dozens of people injured. Below is a video from the attack on the Paris Bataclan Club. Watch the false flag hoax as a pregnant woman clings to the third and second story balcony.
My sources note that the parties who orchestrated the deadliest terrorism attack on any European capital took into account that President Hollande would be attending a friendly French-German football match at the Stade de France, presenting them with a high-quality target for assassination or capture as their hostage. Saturday, the president was the first French official to explicitly accuse ISIS of “an act of war” against France.

One of the terrorists shouted before he died, “Francois Hollande’s foreign policy is to blame!” Another was reported by a witness as shouting "This is for Syria!" while spraying gunfire in one of the targeted restaurants: The other attacks on at least six locations were a kind of vicious subplot with the dual purpose of bloody terror per se as well as a diversionary tactic to confuse French security forces and keep them running around in several directions. The president’s bodyguards were meant to be distracted by two earsplitting explosions staged by two suicide bombers outside the stadium.
The guards however quickly whisked the president out of the stadium in time to escape harm.
Whatever their primary objective, coordinating so many simultaneous terror attacks by a large team called for months of preparation, precise intelligence, a variety of weapons and a large team of dedicated killers backed by exceptional staff work and organization.
Our analysts attribute the multiple assaults to a collaborative effort between Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. Together they were capable of putting up the necessary resources which included: -
1.  A group of at least 20 terrorists for executing the six attacks. The French Prosecutor’s office reported Saturday that seven died in suicide bombings and the eighth was killed by security forces when they raided the concert hall, where dozens of hostages were being killed. Others may still be at large.

My sources suspect that the survivors of the group are lying low and may be planning to emerge for a second round of atrocities in the coming hours or days, like after the Charlie Hebdo episode ten months ago, which was quickly succeeded by a massacre at the Jewish kosher store.
2.  A second group of back-up confederates was made up of drivers, who drove the terrorists to the scenes of attack and were ready to extricate any survivors. They handed the attackers their bomb belts, automatic weapons and explosives and acting also as spotters who watched and recorded the movements of French security forces. They also photographed the incident.
3. A command group planned the attacks, enlisted operatives, directed and coordinated them, and maintained communications among the different teams.
At least 200 operatives at various levels were completely in the picture and directly involved in at least two months of advance planning.
The night of November 14 will be remembered for the failure of France’s Director-General for Internal Security (DGSI) and Director-General for External Security (DGSE) – or their refusal - to pick up the slightest clue to the massive preparations afoot for a horrendous, wide-scale terrorist outrage against their capital city.
Reclusive Muslim communities populate whole Paris suburbs and often practice an extremist Islamic life style which does not recognize the authority of the French Republic. When French police are forced to enter those areas they take care to have an armored military escort with automatic rifles. Rife with crime, poverty and deprivation, these communities are perfect breeding grounds for terrorist networks.
The alienation of the Paris Muslim community and the experiences of young radicals in former Islamic terrorist operations in the past two years have raised a high wall against penetration by French intelligence and police services and any attempts by them to enlist informers, undercover agents or collaborators able to whisper a warning when trouble lies ahead.

The French agencies therefore work in the almost total absence of human intelligence from Arabic speakers conversant with the local dialect, and rely almost exclusively on “signal Intelligence” (SIGINT) for warnings of a deadly threat of the kind that swept Paris Friday and is unlikely to end any time soon.

Since it could not have been the work of 200 lone wolves, but only a large organization with headquarters in Syria and Iraq and impressive multinational capabilities, it is hard to understand how the far-reaching preparations for a multiple Paris terror assault were not detected by any Western signals intelligence branches, including ECHELON, the all-seeing American digital surveillance system and its small brother, Frenchelon. This is bad news for other Western capitals, which ISIS has placed under threat.

A suicide bomber at the Stade de France in Paris on Friday was carrying a Syrian passport issued in Greece. he was among a group posing as refugees that arrived in Leros on October 3 with no papers. Under new emergency provisions, he was given an emergency passport. Officials believe he provided a false identity: Ahmad al Muhammad, born September 10, 1990. The fingerprints on this new passport match the fingerprints of the first terrorist who blew himself up. The man traveled from Greece, to Macedonia, to Serbia, then to Croatia where he registered in a refugee camp.

Senior Iraqi intelligence officials warned coalition countries of imminent ISIS assaults just one day before last week's deadly attacks in Paris. They forwarded to the US, UK and France a dispatch saying the group's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had ordered an attack on coalition countries fighting against them in Iraq and Syria, as well as on Iran and Russia. He specified that the attacks should come, "through bombings or assassinations or hostage taking in the coming days." The Iraqis had no specific information on when or where the assault would take place.

It is not clear whether he was hit by an air strike or from ground fire.

For the first time in months, Obama and Putin held a conversation, talking for 30 minutes on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Turkey, which is overshadowed by the ISIS multiple attacks in Paris and the Syrian question. Neither released any statement. US National Security Adviser Susan Rice was present.

The Belgian intelligence and security services announced Sunday evening that they believe that about 20 terrorists carried out the coordinated assault on Paris.
For the first time since the Russian military buildup in Syria in September, Russian combat helicopters Sunday bombed Islamic State and Nusra Front positions on both sides of the Syrian-Lebanese border, in the Lebanese Beqaa Valley and Harmel Mountains. The Russians were intent on easing the pressure on the Lebanese Hizbollah from the Sunni groups in those areas.
The Defense Ministry in Paris said that 10 French warplanes had dropped 20 bombs on the ISIS Syrian command and control center, ammo depot and training center in Raqqa Sunday night. This was France’s first direct response to the Islamic State’s terror atrocity in Paris, from which the death toll climbed to 132 after three critically injured victims died. The French bombers took off from the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, pictured above.
