He was born and raised in Belgium in a Moroccan family of immigrant parents, and was in contact with Mehdi Nemmouche, a jihadist of Franco-Algerian origin, who shot and killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in May 2014. |
Abaaoud is also suspected of being a part in the attempted attack by Sid Ahmed Ghlam (fr) at a church in Villejuif near Paris in April 2015, as well as of organizing the thwarted Thalys train attack that occurred on 21 August 2015.
THE INTRIGUING QUESTION:
Though, the previous hotbed of terrorism, AfPak region has been squarely annihilated through the use of force by the Pakistani military and an effective AWARENESS CAMPAIGN launched in the social media by the Pakistan Policy Institute, or precisely myself who is read by over a million household each week.
Prior to this the Pakistani yellow journalism obliterated the flow of information through an effective Chinese, Russian, Indian and Iranian lobbies to news favoring the United States, and most of them would not publish my statements as it provides a real face of America.
An effective Muslim Outreach Program of the United States should now capitalize on the situation.
1. Morocco was the first country, and a Muslim nation to recognize the United States. 2. Pakistan, a Muslim nation established Sino American relationship. 3. Pakistan's ISI (military) + CIA jointly worked in Afghanistan to dismantle USSR, and the communist myth, thereby making the United States, a sole superpower of today. 4. Pakistan, a Muslim nation remains an important ally in global war on terrorism. 5. The FAKE ideology of Islam promoted across the continents through hate indoctrination can only be defeated through an effective awareness campaign. 6. There were days, few years back, when my writings on the Facebook faced profanity while favoring U.S. policies. These were the days when writing anything about America would target the person as a CIA agent, something to damage public perceptions in the Muslim world. Mostly Iranian assets in Pakistan did these. 7. Iranian assets in Pakistan holding positions of hierarchy at the highest levels are patriot to Iranian objectives, though paid by Pakistan. 8. I have seen Iranian assets having worked for 3 decades in Saudi Arabia, and accumulated wealth from that country, yet supportive of Iranian clerics while enjoying the benefits out of that economy. One wonders, what is the underlying phenomenon that surpasses the benefits acquired in the Saudia, and still supportive of Iran? This is exactly what I see public opinion in Muslim countries. Those having benefited from the United States are the ones opposing U.S. interests.
REASONS BEHIND THIS HATE:
Complete indoctrination by Iranian assets in the Muslim world through an effective media campaign.
1. I was amazed to listen to a Pakistani Major General who would not know the 'Nixon's Tilt towards Pakistan' in the Indo Pak war of 1971. 2. I was surprised to see the ignorance of a Brigadier who had no idea of the gunship diplomacy of Nixon in 1971. 3. Forget those that relates to ISI-CIA-Mossad cooperation in the Afghanistan war in transferring Soviet weapons confiscated by the IDF in Lebanon. 4. The middle management of the Pakistani military had no idea as to who assassinated General Zia.
IT IS A COMPLETE INDOCTRINATION, WHICH WAS NEVER ADDRESSED THROUGH MUSLIM OUTREACH PROGRAMS, OR MONITORED THROUGH EFFECTIVE AUDIT.
SOLUTION: A. There is a need to watch Facebook and social media tools. B. There is a need of surveillance on print and electronic media in the Muslim nations. C. There is a need to maintain a list of those operating to mislead Muslim nations. D. Some of these individuals succeed in visiting the United States and do reinforce their objectives by influencing the minds of those living in this country. E. An effective vigilance is required on those who are financing overseas organizations detrimental to U.S. policy interests.
To me these measures will obliterate the workings of those who oppose our global interests.
