US Army Vet Fought With Al Qaeda in Syria

A U.S. Army veteran has been arrested for allegedly fighting alongside an al Qaeda group in Syria and then bragging about it online.

Phoenix man Eric Harroun, who served in the Army from 2000 to 2003, was arrested Wednesday upon returning to the U.S. from Turkey, where he had described to FBI agents his bizarre journey to the front lines of Syria’s civil war with fighters from the al-Nusra Front, a designated terrorist organization also referred to as al Qaeda in Iraq.

According to charging documents, Harroun traveled to Turkey in November 2012 and eventually found people there who agreed to help him slip into Syria to help the rebels in January 2013.

When this first broke on the internet over a month ago, I wrote both my Senators asking to know why this guy was drawing a full medical discharge from the Army, able to come into and out of the US at will and fighting along side Al-Qaeda in Syria. Don't tell me justice can't be served these days and that our government does not listen to law-abiding citizens anymore. Now lets see, how many more Islamist supporters do we have in the US that need some attention from Lady Justice ?

Last American Man

UK Mail Online... "If we look beneath the surface of our public affairs, we can discern one fundamental fact, namely: a great redistribution of power between society and the State. This is the fact that interests the student of civilization. He has only a secondary or derived interest in matters like price-fixing, wage-fixing, inflation, political banking, "agricultural adjustment," and similar items of State policy that fill the pages of newspapers and the mouths of publicists and politicians. All these can be run up under one head. They have an immediate and temporary importance, and for this reason they monopolize public attention, but they all come to the same thing; which is, an increase of State power and a corresponding decrease of social power. It is unfortunately none too well understood that, just as the State has no money of its own, so it has no power of its own. All the power it has is what society gives it, plus what it confiscates from time to time on one pretext or another; there is no other source from which State power can be drawn. Therefore every assumption of State power, whether by gift or seizure, leaves society with so much less power; there is never, nor can there be, any strengthening of State power without a corresponding and roughly equivalent depletion of social power.

Israel’s Intelligence Chief: “Syrian Regime is Preparing to Use Chemical Weapons”

“Assad continues to assert his control Syria’s chemical weapons, air force, and military hardware. Assad is making advance preparations to use chemical weapons. He did not give the order yet, but preparing for it.”

Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, IDF Director of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Military Intelligence said today in his speech today, before 4000 attendees at the 13th annual Herzliya conference. In his presentation, Kochavi analyzed the impact of the changes in the Middle East and reviewed key threats to Israel’s security in 3 central arenas: Syria, Iran and the Palestinian Authority.

Kochavi discussed the rise of radical Islam in the Middle East, saying that “these Muslim Brotherhood movements work to promote their agenda of Sharia states, as well as to achieve more strategic goals and to strengthen their hold in the power, including in the Gaza strip and Turkey.”

Kochavi referred to Syria as a disintegrating state, and expressed his worry of the deterioration in governance and Syria’s ability to control its territories. While Assad is losing control of many parts of Syria, Kochavi said,

“The damages of the imminent fall of Syria are very high for both Iran and Hezbollah. Iran is losing a sole ally in the region surrounding Israel. It will lose the ability to transfer weaponry through Syria to Hezbollah.

So my questions remain unanswered. If Obama et al are doing all they can to push Assad into a corner where he is likely to use chemical weapons and know this is likely to happen, doesn't that make him and others involved equally guilty of mass genocide when it happens?
What about the American so-called "jihadist" Eric Harroun from Arizona who is there now working along with Al-Queda and other Sharia government supporters? Why is he receiving full medical disability from the US Army and able to move in and out of the US at will ?

US Judge Clears Path for Trial Against French Bank's Hamas Accounts

by Paul Alster
A leading European bank faces trial in New York later this year after a federal judge found there is sufficient evidence it knew the funds were being used to support a Palestinian terrorist group.

U.S. District Judge Dora Irizarry denied French banking giant Credit Lyonnais SA's motion for summary judgment last Thursday, saying "there is a genuine issue" about the bank's behavior with the accounts in question.

The case has been brought by 200 plaintiffs killed or wounded in more than a dozen Hamas terrorist acts between 2002 and 2004. Credit Lyonnais allowed a Palestinian organization that claimed to be a charity to launder Hamas money used in attacks in Israel in which the plaintiffs and their relatives were victims.

Credit Lyonnais is the first of three major international banks facing similar lawsuits in American courts; the others are the Arab Bank, one of the leading banks in the Middle East, and the major British banking giant, NatWest. If a jury finds the bank liable, the case could have massive repercussions across the world.

"This is a ground breaking decision for a New York court because we had the UBS case and another case against Arab Bank when the court said 'No. You still have to prove that the bank had the same goals as the terror organization,'" said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of the Israel-based Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center). The group represents hundreds of terror victims in lawsuits throughout the world.

"Now, here is a court that says it is enough to prove liability if [the banks] are giving money to a terror organization."

As a result, banks will have to be more careful to ensure their accounts don't wind up helping terrorist groups or charities that serve them, Darshan-Leitner said. "Credit Lyonnais facilitated an account to CBSP; not directly to Hamas, but to a charity that funds Hamas. [The summary judgment] says that CBSP is designated because they fund Hamas, therefore no bank operating in the U.S. is allowed to give financial services to CBSP or to any designated charity or terror organization. It is a kind of a shockwave to the international banking system."

The U.S. Antiterrorism Act of 1992 opened the door for lawsuits by terror victims against foreign entities, and U.S. criminal code makes it illegal for anyone to "knowingly provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization."

So will this ruling apply to Obama for giving F16s and M1 Abrams tanks to the muslim brotherhood in Egypt ? Read more here.........

What will happen if Obama Orders the U.S. Military to Confiscate Guns in America

5 March 2013. It is time for Americans to start thinking seriously about the possibility that their sons and daughters may be put in the untenable position going house-to-house, confiscating firearms and ammunition from their friends and family? What will they do?
(Are you sure? A military comprised primarily of sons, daughters, brothers and sisters of gun owning families.)

Throughout the military - the kids, grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends of veterans and gun enthusiasts are likely weighing the possibilities of such an order and just how far they personally would be willing to go in carrying out something that would rip the very fabric of this nation apart and go against everything they’ve sworn to protect. In thinking the unthinkable, certainly they must be questioning the end game and who are the real good guys. Especially, when they see this President fail to pay homage to the recent death of the greatest American Sniper in history, Chris Kyle. When they see this Commander in Chief fail to engage while our Ambassador in Benghazi and former Navy Seals are in the fight of their lives, wouldn’t a reasonable soldier reevaluate Obama’s fidelity to the code – we leave no one behind. When Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security Report labels returning Veterans and Tea Party people as potential terrorists, one has to ask what the heck is going on. When they see towns putting in place plans for confiscation of firearms from the “unruly” during emergency, when veterans are receiving letters deeming them incompetent to own firearms without due process - aren’t those in service wondering if they themselves will be the ones seen as threats, will they be the “unruly” that towns are talking about?

Will soldiers look closely if they are ordered to search American families’ homes? Will most intentionally not see the old double barrel shotgun in the closet of another soldier’s father or grandfather? Will they speak quietly to local veterans and relatives telling them where they might search next? Will enough refuse, making it impossible for those like Hagel, Kerry, Brennan and certain military brass to fully weaken America and her future? The veterans I know understand that the Second Amendment is in fact the keystone of the Constitution and without it - all the others would be put in jeopardy (if not now, then surely in a disarmed future). The Founders certainly understood this, why can’t Obama and his friends?

I don’t know the answer to these questions, but I do know the time is close when each of us will need to choose our paths. It may not be today, but I can see it coming just over the horizon. Can you?

[If one listens only to the mainstream media, you probably can’t. I would suggest you broaden your information base.]

Will a young soldier choose Obama and their personal career over the Constitution, over the freedom of their families and their families’ families, over the sacrifices of veterans in whose boots each soldier now walks; over the ability of their own wives, daughters and sons to defend themselves; and over the ability (in an increasingly dangerous world) of ordinary Americans to stand against tyranny? What choices will local Sheriffs, FBI agents, ATF agents, local police make? What do you think?
Let’s look at a few demographics that might cause you on the left to reassess your certainty...............
