Anonymous Says ISIS Planning Attacks Sunday - 'Paris And The World', Massive Russian Air Bombardment Is Flattening Raqqa

Anonymous says ISIS planning attacks in US, Paris, elsewhere Sunday: report | TheHill

Someone claiming to be the hacker collective Anonymous says the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is planning to launch attacks in the U.S., Paris, Indonesia, Italy and Lebanon on Sunday, according to a report.
OpParisIntel, the name of Anonymous’ mission against ISIS, released a statement Saturday saying it had uncovered information regarding new terror plots “on Paris and the world” scheduled for Nov. 22, according to the International Business Times.
“All proof was submitted to official authorities all around the globe days ago,” the statement said. “They have it and it is their responsibility to do something with it. But because they have not done anything with it yet and it’s almost the 22nd, we have matters into our own hands.”
“We only take the responsibility of warning civilians (incase the authorities do not act well enough),” the statement added.
But a Twitter account closely associated with Anonymous disavowed connection to the statement.
"We did not spread any rumors about possible future ISIS attacks, and frankly, we do not know where the rumors come from," the account @YourAnonNews tweeted.

The Saturday statement warned against attending events with large crowds, especially church services, but added that “the risk of any churches outside Paris/France being targeted is low."
“The goal is to make sure the whole world, or at least the people going to these events, know that there have been threats and that there is possibility of an attack to happen,” the statement said.
It listed several events in Paris that it said “have been confirmed are at risk” and several events around the world that are not yet “100% confirmed,” including a major WWE pro wrestling event in Atlanta, Ga.
WWE said the event will still take place as scheduled.

“WWE Survivor Series is currently scheduled as planned while we investigate the matter with federal, state and local authorities," WWE said in a statement to The Hill.
The people behind the statement told IBT that it has sent the information to U.K. intelligence agency MI5, as well as the CIA and the FBI in the U.S., but has refused to release proof of the attacks publicly.

“If we share the proof [publicly], everyone will start calling it fake because screenshots can be edited and accounts can be deleted,” the hacking group said. “We have purposely not shared account links publicly because they would be shut down immediately and then no one would believe the proof.”

Anonymous declared cyber war on ISIS after the group claimed responsibility for a terrorist attack in Paris last week, killing at least 132 civilians and injuring hundreds.

The FBI Saturday said in a statement it is aware of an alleged threat by the Islamic State group to stage an attack on a WWE event scheduled for Atlanta Sunday evening. However, FBI Special Agent in Charge J. Britt Johnson of the Atlanta office said the bureau did not have "specific or credible information of an attack."
 "The FBI is aware of reports of an alleged threat that includes an Atlanta, Georgia, venue and event. ... We have ... made the proper notifications as we continue to work closely with our law-enforcement and private-sector partners to keep our community safe."

 Anonymous, the loose collective of online activists, said Saturday it has uncovered information about Islamic State group attacks in Paris as well as at locations in the U.S., Indonesia, Italy and Lebanon, all apparently set for Sunday. OpParisIntel, a group within Anonymous, released a statement saying it had collected information about imminent attacks by the militant group -- aka Daesh, ISIL and ISIS -- in the French capital a little more than a week after a series of coordinated attacks there left 130 dead and hundreds injured.

Anonymous also said the Islamic State group is planning an assault at the WWE Survivor Series event scheduled to take place in the Philips Arena in Atlanta Sunday at 7.30 p.m. EST, as well as attacks at multiple events in Paris.

The collective published the list of potential targets alongside a statement: "The goal is to make sure the whole world, or at least the people going to these events, know that there have been threats and that there is possibility of an attack to happen. Another goal is to make sure Daesh knows that the world knows and cancels the attacks, which will disorientate them for a while."

The targets listed by Anonymous are as follow:
  • Cigales Electroniques with Vocodecks, RE-Play & Rawtor at Le Bizen (Paris)
  • Concrete Invites Drumcode: Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Joel Mull at Concrete (Paris)
  • Demonstration by Collectif du Droit des Femmes (Paris)
  • Feast of Christ the King celebrations (Rome/Worldwide)
  • Al-Jihad, One Day One Juz (Indonesia)
  • Five Finger Death Punch (Milan)
  • University Pastoral Day (Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Lebanon)

According to Anonymous: "We only appeared now because our goal was to remain undercover and report everything to the right authorities and let them take all the action. But when authorities do not take action, Anonymous does. This part of the op started last Monday and has [been] and will be active 24 hours a day as long as the op is going on."

Anonymous declared war on the Islamic State group last week, vowing to track it down online as part of its Operation Paris (or OpParis). It has since released a guide for all those looking to take part in the operation, which already has identified tens of thousands of Twitter accounts it said are associated with the militant group while also taking some websites offline. The Islamic State group has responded to the threat by Anonymous, warning of a retaliatory attack on the activist group.

Russia has launched a merciless blanket air campaign, backed by Kalibr cruise missiles fired from the Caspian and Mediterranean Seas, for the object of wiping the Islamic State’s Syrian center of Raqqa off the map,

Western and Middle East sources tracking the campaign since Friday, Nov. 20, report that at least 75 air sorties have been conducted and are systematically razing the town of 200,000 inhabitants 160km east of Aleppo, district by district, irrespective of civilian town dwellers.

Moscow wants the entire Middle East and Muslim world to see the price exacted for launching a terrorist attack on Russia after the downing of the Metrojet airliner that killed 224 people over Egyptian Sinai on Oct. 31. Russian bombers and cruise missiles rained death and destruction on the ISIS administration center after the jihadists claimed responsibility for that disaster and published photos of a soft drink can claimed to have been rigged as a bomb for blowing the plane up.

The Russian defense ministry ran photos Friday of Russian technicians loading bombs on the Tupolev 95 bombers (dubbed “Bears” in the West). Ground crews marked the bombs “For ours,” and “For Paris.”

Last Tuesday, our military sources first revealed that the Tupolev’s were taking off from Morozovsk air base in the Rostov district of southern Russia instead of from the Russian military enclave outside the Syrian town of Latakia.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported Friday that 15 Syrian oil facilities seized by ISIS had been destroyed this week and 525 of their trucks, costing the jihadists $1.5 million a day in revenue.

As for casualties, the published figure of 600 jihadists killed in one day is probably far below the real figure. Our sources report that the Islamist terrorists’ death toll most probably runs into thousands with many more injured.

To sustain the hectic tempo of its aerial war, Moscow has doubled the number of bombers assigned to Syria from 34 two weeks ago to 69 by Saturday, Nov. 21.

Our military sources add that this augmented air power allows the Russians to expand their targets to other parts of Syria. On Friday, they renewed sorties against Syrian rebel forces holding the southern town of Deraa near the Jordanian border.

 "Gentlemen. You can't fight in here. This is the war room!"
It could have been a scene straight out of "Dr. Strangelove" when President Vladimir V. Putin stepped into the Russian Ministry of Defense's brand new, three-tiered, multibillion-dollar control center this week, for a war briefing that had its fair share of movie-like pageantry.
The fortified National Control Defense Center was Putin's first stop after officials confirmed that the Russian charter jet crash that claimed 224 lives last month was the result of an act of terror.
On movie-theater-size screens, live broadcasts showed long-range strategic bombers taking off from Russian air bases to fly sorties over Syria. Putin instructed commanders in Syria to "make contact with the French and work with them as allies" as Russia seeks a central role in a proposed anti-terrorist coalition.
But the real star of the show may have been the building itself, which is designed to be a new nerve center for the Russian military that will coordinate military action around the world, including ballistic missile launches and strategic nuclear deployments.

The building is roughly the equivalent of the U.S. National Military Command Center used by the Pentagon, but as one Russian state news agency noted in a breathless headline this week, "Russian Defense Data Center Outperforms US Facility Threefold: Official."
The center, which is fortified and said to sit on top of a maze of underground tunnels, is on the Frunze Naberezhnaya on the left bank of the Moscow river, a little over two miles from Red Square.

I never in my lifetime thought Russia would be the ones fighting for a free world and safety. Yes , they may be the ones attacking my beloved Israel soon, but for now I have mad respect for Putin.
Also text or call your congressmen to stop the Syrian refugees from coming here. It's very important as a few calls one way or another could tip the scales this moment.
Scott, from today's news I'm guessing that thing I sent yesterday was right on. :\
Jesus, hurry up, im getting ants in my pants waiting! Lol ;)

Christ Our King

The governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? – Matt 27:11

Jesus did not look much like a king as He stood there, His hands bound, a cord about His neck. Pilate’s question
sounds like ridicule. Yet Jesus answered, “Yes, I am a king.” Strange answer! Where, then, was His power? Where
were His throne, His crown, His sceptre, His royal robes? Who recognized His sway? Pilate probably looked at Him
with mingled contempt and pity.

But to us to-day how different does it all appear! He is throned now “far above all principality, and power, and might,
and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.” In heaven He
is honoured as “King of kings, and Lord of lords.” On His head are many crowns. All over the earth, too, His sway is
felt. Wherever His gospel has gone, with its revelation of divine love and grace, the influence of His kingdom has reached.

And Jesus was as really a king when He stood before Pilate that day, to human eyes bound and powerless, as He is now,
exalted on heaven’s throne. His kingdom was spiritual: it was a kingdom of truth, of righteousness, of holiness, of grace,
and of love. He seemed the weakest of all men that morning; but in reality He was the mightiest, the grandest, the kingliest.
What, then, is greatness? What is power? What is kingliness? Not anything external, not anything that men’s eyes can see.
The world bows down before thrones that glitter, and crowns whose jewels flash in sunlight, and worships power whose majesty
is expressed in material splendour. But the real power of the world is Christ’s power, — The kingdom whose sway is over human
hearts and lives. It is spiritual. It makes men better, and lifts them up into noble life, into purity, holiness, and Divine beauty.
