New Year’s Eve Terror Warning: Major European Cities on Alert

New Year’s Eve Terror Warning: Major European Cities on Alert

As a frontline state facing global Jihad, Israel cooperating with Europeans on counter-terrorism

According to British newspaper Express, city of London and other European capitals have been warned about an imminent terror attack “on or before New Year’s Eve.” The security alert issued by an unnamed intelligence agency specifically mentions the likelihood of an attack on shoppers and revellers in crowded places around New Year’s Eve in a European city.

The warning is considered credible, prompting the police departments across Europe to take security measures in a bid to avert another Paris-style attack. London-based Express writes:

The terror alert was handed to Austrian police from a “friendly” intelligence service, as evidence grows that jihadi sleeper cells are planning to hit Western targets.

It has prompted police across the continent to increase security measures in a bid to prevent a Paris-style copycat attack on an unknown location in Europe. (…)

A statement released by police in Austria said: “In the days before Christmas a warning was sent out by a friendly (intelligence) service to numerous European capitals, saying that it could come to an attack involving explosives or a shooting between Christmas and the New Year in crowded spaces.”

Austrian Police has intensified security checks, increased readiness in case of an attack, and tightened vigilance at country’s airports and public place.

French Police also placed over 48,000 police officers to secure “sensitive sites”, mainly Churches and Synagogues, throughout the holiday season till January 4.

In Germany, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior confirmed that the country is “still in the crosshairs of Jihadist terrorism.”

Though European security agencies have not named the “friendly foreign intelligence service”, but Israel could be one of the potential sources of intelligence. Israel — as a frontline state facing global jihad — has long been cooperating with Europeans in the field of counter-terrorism.

Last month, Israel provided key intelligence to Germany on an imminent terrorist attack during a soccer match between Germany and the Netherlands in the city of Hanover. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel were set to attend the match to show solidarity with France in the aftermath of Paris attacks.

So far Islamic State (ISIS) has made good on its promises of hitting at the heart of Europe. With ISIS claiming to have smuggled more than four thousand fighters into Europe, using the cover of migrant influx — ‘Fortress Europe’ didn’t look this vulnerable since the end of Cold War, a quarter of a century ago.

The year that began with a three-day terror spree in early January at the editorial office of Charlie Hebdo and kosher grocery in Paris claiming 17 lives, is refusing to end on a peaceful note for Europe.

I hope nothing happens while my son is in Israel right now. I will sleep better when he comes back.

    Well, ISIS/ISIL/Darsh/Islamic State told a German reporter, or had its people tell a German reporter, Jürgen Todenhöfer, who was given very unusual privileges by ISIS, that it was afraid to tangle with Israel. That could have false, but it could also have been real – that is, it may have felt it necessary to tell all its people not to do anything against IIsrael – just yet. Not that the reasons given for being afraid of Israel were true.

    And it is also true that the ISIS affiliate in Sinai, when it joined ISIS, actually changed its name FROM Ansar Beit-Hamikdash to Sinai Province – clearly to disassociate itself from attacks on Israel.

    But that is old news Jürgen Todenhöfer, who is now in Iraqi Kurdistan, gave an interview just now, but his news is older and in the mneantime Bagdadi has issued a new threat – saying they have not forgotten Palestine, and Jews should not think themselves secure in the possession of Palestine. SO that’s kind f warning of an attack.

An invasion invited by anti-native politicians is in progress. Sacrifice your first son or daughter to pave their way.

Right now, and hisorically, terrorism against Israel and terrorism against what can be descrobed as the west are two separate departments (terrorism against India is yet anther separate department.

ISIS may want to link the two at a time of its own choosing, when it can most discombobulate its enemies.

Doing an attack aaginst Europe, and getrrting Europe more committed against it, and then launching an attack against Israel could maybe do that kind of think, beause it would make some of their Arab enenies into allies of Israel. Or seem to do so.

Nobody knows if any of this is real, or, if they planned attacks in Germany, and logic says they did, they can still do it. Or do it at all.
