Hebdo Part Deux in Denmark: ‘ISIS-Inspired’ Gunmen Attack Cartoonist and Synagogue

21st Century Wire says…
Feb 15, 2015

Is this yet another GLADIO-style attack in Europe?

It’s Hebdo Part Deux in Denmark this week, as the public are told that another “ISIS-inspired attack” took place earlier today…

copenhagen-shootingOne man was reportedly killed and others injured as two masked gunmen opened fire at the Krudttoenden Cultural Centre Cafe in Copenhagen (image above), after the venue was sprayed with over 200 bullets.

We’re then told that the gunman then fled in a carjacked Volkswagen Polo. As with the Paris action-drama, the two gunman are now ‘on the run’.

1-Copenhagen-Hebdo-AttackFor good measure it seems, and identical to the Paris template, their was a second shooting – outside of a Synagogue, where two police officers were wounded in the arms and legs, and a civilian man was also killed. A gunman fled on foot.

Unlike the Paris Attacks, there were no “amateur cell phone videos” made to record the attack, only official CCTV images released to the public, perhaps because of issues regarding controlling the set and additional problems with poor execution in Paris which prompted wide-spread criticism over the “fakeness” of the films.

As a result, the Danish government have deployed the military and declared Martial Law until the terror threat level is reduced.

Organizers were hosting a dubious debate entitled, ‘Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression’, with the star speaker being none other than Lars Vilks, 68, a Swedish cartoonist who sparks riots across Europe and the Middle East after publishing offensive drawings that depicted the Prophet Mohammed as a dog in 2007.

TROUBLED: Cartoonist Vilks has been targeted ever since his controversy in 2007.

If this was indeed another contrived false flag event, the staging could not have been better as this event also marked the anniversary of the Islamic fatwa against British author Salman Rushdie for his book The Satanic Verses. 

The global media appeared to have the narrative in place in real-time. “I clearly consider this an attack on Lars Vilks,” said Helle Merete Brix, one of the event’s organizers – a declaration which she made to AP only minutes after the incident took place.

Last year a mentally ill Pennsylvania actor, Collen Rose, rebranded by the media as ‘Jihad Jane’ was sentenced to a 10-year prison term for “plotting” to kill Vilks, and two brothers were imprisoned for attempted arson in 2010 when they tried to burn his home down in southern Sweden.

Not surprisingly, the laconic Vilks has been complaining as of late that because of all the violence fewer organizations were inviting him to give lectures.

From a GLADIO perspective of using terror to coerce a government into a specific geopolitical position (as appears to be the case with France last month), Denmark does not appear to be falling outside of the US-led “Coalition” against ISIS in the Middle East. Last September, Denmark joined France, Britain, Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Canada in launching airstrikes in Iraq. However, Denmark is NOT involved in the campaign in Syria, but that could change now that ‘terror’ has finally arrived on its doorstep.

Could this be a Hebdo Copy Cat attack? Perhaps, but readers may want to keep an eye out for any sudden geopolitical moves, or right-wing political advances in the immediate aftermath of this shady event.

If this is a false flag operation, expect colorful media coverage of new “terror raids” to take place somewhere in Europe over the next 72 hours, as western intelligence agencies move to liquidate some informant cells, and bring closure to the Copenhagen event – with a full Hegelian package of “Problem, Reaction, Solution.”

Paris Shooting Suspects Under French Radar for YEARS

The Daily Sheeple

by Tony Cartalucci
Land Destroyer Report
January 11th, 2015

The Paris shooting suspects were no strangers to the French government and its security and intelligence agencies. One suspect, Cherif Kouachi, was arrested by French police in 2005, tried and sentenced to 3 years in prison for “association with wrongdoers with the intention of committing a terrorist act,” but his sentence would later be suspended.

Slate Magazine would report in their article, “The Details of Paris Suspect Cherif Kouachi’s 2008 Terrorism Conviction,” that:

Kouachi was arrested in January 2005, accused of planning to join jihadists in Iraq. He was said to have fallen under the sway of Farid Benyettou, a young “self-taught preacher” who advocated violence, but had not actually yet traveled to Iraq or committed any acts of terror. Lawyers at the time said he had not received weapons training and “had begun having second thoughts,” going so far as to express “relief” that he’d been apprehended.

Strange then that Kourachi and his brother would then be reported to have traveled to the Middle East to receive training from Al Qaeda, then to have fought in Syria in a war backed in part by France, before returning home and carrying out this most recent terror attack, all while being tracked by French intelligence. If Kouachi could be arrested for “association with wrongdoers with the intention of committing a terrorist act,” why wasn’t he arrested immediately upon his return to France for having received and employed military training by a terrorist organization?

Obama Declares War On ‘Extremism’ – Are You An ‘Extremist’ According To His Definition?

by Michael Snyder
Activist Post
Jan 11, 2015

Do you know what an “extremist” is?  In the wake of the horrible terror attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in France, Barack Obama is speaking very boldly about the need to win the war against “extremists”, and he has announced plans to host a major global summit on “extremism” next month.  And on the surface that sounds great.  But precisely how are we supposed to determine whether someone is an “extremist” or not?  What criteria should we use?

As you will see below, your definition of an “extremist” may be far, far different from the definition that Barack Obama is using.  When you do a Google search, you will find that an “extremist” is defined as “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action.”  According to Wikipedia, “extremism” is “an ideology (particularly in politics or religion), considered to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of a society or to violate common moral standards.  Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and economic.”

Please notice that neither of those definitions uses the word violence.  In this day and age, you can be considered an “extremist” simply based on what you believe, and as you will see later in this article there are now tens of millions of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” according to official U.S. government documents.

When you use the word “extremist”, you may have in your mind a picture of ISIS fighters or the terrorists from the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

But for elitists such as Barack Obama, the word “extremist” has a much broader meaning.  In recent years, it has become a code word for those who do not have an “enlightened” view of the world.  If your views on politics, religion or social issues are extremely different from the liberal, progressive views of “the mainstream” (as defined by the mainstream media and by “mainstream” politicians such as Barack Obama), then they consider you to be an extremist.

RADIO — Webster Tarpley – Charlie Hebdo shooting

Webster Tarpley Radio

Webster Tarpley – World Crisis Radio – January 10, 2015

French President Francois Hollande declared on January 5, 2015 that US-ordered sanctions against Russia had to end. On January 7, Paris was rocked by the worst terror attack in many decades, carried out by ostentatiously Islamist operatives against the political satire weekly Charlie Hebdo. Are these events somehow related? And is the real issue more geopolitics than free speech?

French Interior Ministry called Unity Rally on January 11 “unprecedented”, adding that the numbers were impossible to properly count because people veered off the officially stated route. However, French media put the number as high as 3 million, with some suggesting that there hasn’t been a march of the same level since Paris was freed from the Nazis in WW2.

CFR: French Admit To ‘Following’ Kouachi Brothers Before Magazine Shooting

BREAKING: Paris Double Siege Ends in Death of Suspects, New ‘Anti-Semitic’ and ‘Al-Awlaki’ Narratives

21st Century Wire says…
[Jan 9, 2014]

As French authorities close in on the two fleeing suspects turned hostage-takers, skepticism is building around reports which indicated a vast dossier for each suspect, and how security services allowed the alleged suspects to roam free, plan and stage Wednesday’s violent incident at Charlie Hebdo Magazine in Paris.

Going by the official narrative, which says that the two prime suspects announced by French police, brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi were also responsible for Wednesday’s attack, it seems as if the two ‘terrorists’ were being closely monitored and tracked by both French and US security services prior to the event…

21WIRE-PARIS-SIEGE-2HOSTAGE SIEGE: ‘CTD’ Building located in the town of Dammartin en Goele, just northeast of Paris. 

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) mouthpiece, Foreign Policy Magazine admitted as much on Thursday, stating:

“French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Thursday that the suspects were “probably followed” prior to the shooting and that there apparently was no sign of an impending attack, according to Le Figaro. Indeed, both Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34, were previously known to the authorities. Cherif was convicted by a French court in 2008 of trying to travel to Iraq to fight in that country’s insurgent movement. Both brothers were named in a 2010 case in connection with a plot to spring an imprisoned Islamist from jail, according to the BBC. Because of a lack of evidence, neither brother was prosecuted.”

French-SuspectsKouachi Brothers – said by French Police to be responsible for Magazine Murders.

“According to CNN, citing an unnamed U.S. official, French intelligence has told their American counterparts that Said Kouachi traveled to Yemen in 2011 “on behalf of the al Qaeda affiliate there” and received weapons training from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.”

“According to Yahoo News and reports in other American outlets, both brothers were viewed by American security officials as sufficiently serious threats to be placed on a no-fly list preventing them from traveling on commercial aircraft bound for and leaving the United States.”

One of the brothers is also said by authorities to have served prison time in France on terrorism charges, and this unique profile raises the very real possibility that at least one could have been groomed as an informant.

US media are currently coalescing around a new set of talking points to confront this embarrassing aspect of the story, with the new talking point being, “It’s impossible to keep track of all of these radicalized individuals, and more resources are needed to prevent attacks like this”, which is being streamlined across all major media outlets today.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Based on the timing of the photos released by police and the professional contract/mercenary attributes of the attack, therefore, it is VERY UNLIKELY that the two suspects presented by French Police, Cherif and Said Kouachi, are the same men who carried out today’s sophisticated attack. Note also the height and build of the shooters, and do not be surprised if the two suspects are short and look nothing like the tall, muscular-frame shooters depicted in news reports on Wednesday.

A Timeline: Where’d Paris Shooters Get Their Weapons?

by Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post
Jan 7, 2015

Heavily armed, well-trained gunmen executed what appears to be a well-planned attack in Paris, France, killing 12, including 2 police officers. Where did these terrorists get their weapons, training, political backing, funds, and inspiration? A short timeline featuring news stories from 2011 to 2014 helps explain how France’s recent national tragedy was a direct result of its own insidious, callus, terroristic foreign policy that has visited this very same carnage seen in Paris, upon the people of Libya and Syria, a thousand fold. 

Image: France has been arming, funding, backing, and exploiting armies of terrorists from North Africa to the Middle East as part of NATO’s larger bid to use Al Qaeda to overthrow governments and rearrange regions to better align to their hegemonic agenda. Now these same extremists are running rampant in France’s own streets – either as a form of blowback, or as a means to manipulate public perception as NATO did with Operation Gladio during the Cold War. 

2011 – France supplying weapons to Libyan rebels, London Telegraph:

A French military spokesman, Colonel Thierry Burkhard, said it had provided “light arms such as assault rifles” for civilian communities to “protect themselves against Col Gaddafi”.

But the decision to arm the rebels is a further move towards direct involvement in the land war on top of the air war against Col Muammar Gaddafi. The Nafusa rebels have come closest to breaking through to Tripoli itself of any of the front lines of the conflict, while three months of Nato bombing have failed to dislodge Col Gaddafi from power.

Le Figaro, the French newspaper which first reported the air drops, said the shipment included rifles, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, along with Milan anti-tank missiles.

2011 – Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links, London Telegraph:

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

2012 – France to push for arming Syria’s opposition coalition, the BBC:

France’s foreign minister has said he will discuss supplying arms to the Syrian opposition coalition with European partners.

The government plans to push for a relaxation of the EU arms embargo to Syria to enable “defensive arms” to reach opposition fighters.

2013 – Syria crisis: France and Britain move a step closer to arming rebels, the London Guardian:

France and Britain have moved a step closer to arming the opposition to the Assad regime in a radical move aimed at tipping the balance in the two-year civil war while also ignoring European policy on Syria.

The French president, François Hollande, went into an EU summit in Brussels with a dramatic appeal for Europe to join Paris and London in lifting a European arms embargo, but the sudden policy shift was certain to run into stiff German opposition.

2013 – Syrian rebels pledge loyalty to al-Qaeda, USA Today:

A Syrian rebel group’s April pledge of allegiance to al-Qaeda’s replacement for Osama bin Laden suggests that the terrorist group’s influence is not waning and that it may take a greater role in the Western-backed fight to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The pledge of allegiance by Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri was coupled with an announcement by the al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq, that it would work with al Nusra as well.

2014 – France delivered arms to Syrian rebels, Hollande confirms, France 24:

President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that France had delivered weapons to rebels battling the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad “a few months ago.”

France Isn’t the Only One

The cartoonish nature of France first being reported to give weapons to “rebels” before these “rebels” are reported to be, in fact, Al Qaeda is not simply France’s bad luck. It is part of NATO’s very intentional, vast network of global state-sponsored terrorism. It would be reported that terrorists armed by the US in Syria with antitank missiles sided with Al Qaeda franchise and US State Department listed foreign terrorist organization, Al Nusra.
