They then attacked an Israeli border patrol, where they abducted Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev and brought them to Lebanon. Both were killed. An additional four Israelis were killed while in pursuit of the abductors, when their Merkava tank hit an improvised explosive device (IED). Ehud and Eldad were returned, dead, two years after the murder, in an Israeli exchange of Hezbollah prisoners. Israel determines they were killed at the time of ambush.
F= France: Paris massacres: Charlie Hebdo, twelve killed (January 7, 2015; see Charlie Hebdo, above) and HyperCacher, January 9, 2015, four killed. Separate incidents, which were committed by Arab jihadists. HyperCacher is a kosher supermarket, serving the Jewish populations of the local areas.

Seven Israeli Army staff were also killed. The attack occured on April 9, 1995, via Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Alisa passed away on April 10, 1995. Her father, a lawyer, helped to expose the unlawful activities of BNP Paribas, a bank which violated sanctions for dealing with Iran. Due to the Iranian connections to terrorism and in helping to fund PIJ, the Government of Iran was court-ordered to pay the Flatow family $247.5 million.
Fatah / Arab terrorist organization.
Fort Hood, Texas / Jordanian-American Major (Revoked) Nidal Malik Hassan served in the United States Army Medical Corps. His internship and residency at Walter Reed Medical Center put him into contact with injured and returning U.S. war veterans, whom he oversaw under psychiatric care. For six years, his behavior there was considered extremely odd, and he concluded lecture speeches and written reports with the Islamic war cry of Jihad, “Allahu Akhbar”. An investigation by the FBI of Hassan’s email contacts with alleged al-Qaeda replacement leader to terrorist Osama Bin Laden, Yemeni-American Anwar al-Awlaki (deceased), the former Imam of a Falls Church, Virginia mosque, were considered of no import and were deemed authorized professional research. Similarly, benignly conclusive results by the Department of Defense classified the deadliest terror attack, which Nidal Hassan conducted against his fellow colleagues by mass shooting, on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001, a matter of “workplace violence”. He admitted to the murders at his trial, and was stripped of his rank and sentenced to death by execution. November 5, 2009; 13 killed, 32 injured (plus Nidal Hassan = 33).

Madrid, Spain / site of numerous bombing attacks, due to historical Muslim attempted take-overs of Spain. Basque ETA separatists also involved in many of Spain’s conflicts. El-Andalus reference of previous height of Muslim occupation. Muslims, along with Jews, were expelled from Spain in 1492. Kingdom and Monarchies of Spain, as well as its Christian nature, determined to keep its territorial hold in the region. Muslim desire for conquest has caused many of its previous wars, as well as modern-day terrorist attacks, which plague it, due to this reason. Recent bombings include: 1974, 1979, 1985, 1986,1993, 1995, 2004, 2006. The one most remembered in recent times is the 2004 Madrid bombing, being the deadliest terrorist attack in Spain. Backpack bombs were placed on trains. March 11, 2004; 192 killed, 2,050 injured.
Mumbai, India / site of numerous attacks in India, as well as in the rest of the country. India has a similar situation to Israel, with conflicts arising from the Muslim minority in its midsts, which constantly attack the other groups. This led to India’s acquiescence to cede land for a Muslim state (now called Pakistan) during the same 1947-1948 time period of Israel’s formal declaration of independence from its remaining land (given over, by the British, to become Jordan). From 2005 to July 2006, terror attacks inside India have killed 707, and injured over 3,200.

Desirous of nuclear technology, despite ample other fossil and natural resources such as fuels, deposits, and other rich assets. All this, and yet TIME magazine declares him “Man of the Year” for 1979.

V= Vienna, Gates of Vienna (Austria) / The Siege of Vienna, September 27-October 15, 1529, was the first in several attempts by Islam/Turkish Ottoman Empire to conquer Europe. They conquered some areas, but were repelled in Vienna, and continued over the next 150 years to make war on Vienna. On July 14, 1683, the Ottoman Turks again attempted to conquer Vienna, but a coalition party of territories in the region fought back in what is known as The Battle of Vienna, begun September 11th, 1683. It lasted through September 12th, and drove the Ottoman Empire out of European lands in a decisive victory. The Ottoman-Habsburg wars were a clash for power for territory between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire. This cuckolding loss to Ottoman Muslim honor can be seen for the basis of the timing of the September 11th attacks on the United States, where historic dates, combined with losses, fuel the Muslim fires of raging fury.
