Islamic Terrorism Timeline
- January 2, 1978: Bombs exploded in Brussels and London, both rocking buildings containing Turkish banking interests. The New Armenian Resistance Group claimed responsibility.
Two days later in Athens, the Secret Armenian Army claimed credit for detonating a bomb in the car of Turkey's Press attaché. They told the Reuter News Agency: "We have not forgotten the murder of one million Armenians. The Turks will pay for it. Our targets are Turkish diplomats.".
The terrorists were Marxists, not Muslims, yet these bombings belong in the Islamic Terrorism Timeline because they were prompted by the third most horrific exhibition of Islam in the past one hundred years. Unable to accept responsibility for their WWI defeat at the hand of Czarist Russians, the Islamic Ottoman Turks blamed the minority Christian Armenians - people who they had treated like dirt - for their failure. The entire population of two million Armenians was forcibly driven from their homes and land by the retreating Turkish Army. Christian children were enslaved, women were raped, and one million innocent people of all ages were slaughtered. In its scale, style, and savagery, the genocide the Muslim Turks perpetrated on the Christian Armenians in 1915 became the prototype for the Nazi Holocaust - right down to the cattle cars, concentration camps, and crematorium. It was textbook terrorism. Armed and enraged, deceived and immoral, Muslim men with a political and religious agenda assaulted a defenseless civilian population, terrorizing them into submission.
While the scale was larger because the weapons had improved, the Armenian genocide was a reenactment of Muhammad's assault on the defenseless Jews who lived in his midst - systematically exiling and enslaving, robbing and raping, and murderously massacring them. But these were not the only similarities. Muhammad and the vile spirit he called Allah beguiled Muslims into trusting in a new and convoluted morality were "stealing was lawful and good," where god and prophet "disavow their sworn testimony," where "war is deception and victory is achieved through terrorism," and where non-Muslims are to be "wiped out to the last.".
So while we do not condone the use of violence to expose what the Muslim Turks did, or to condemn the religion of Islam which caused them to do it, preferring words to weapons, the world's ignorance of the Armenian genocide and tolerance of Islam led directly to the Nazi Holocaust and the Sudanese genocide. It has led to the onslaught of Islam against the West today. Ignorance is not bliss. It is why Yahweh said in Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed because they are unaware - lacking in knowledge." Those who do not know history, repeat it. Those who tolerate merciless doctrines in the name of enlightenment, political correctness, and multiculturalism, become the scheme's victims.
Should you wish to know the truth and do your part to save those you love from Islam, the story of the Muslim genocide of Christians in Turkey is presented in the Islamic Terrorism Timeline on January 28, 1973 and in the Turkish Special Organization entry of the Islamic Clubs listing. The Mufti's story and his influence on the Nazi Holocaust is told in the Islamic Terrorism Timeline on July 4, 1974 and repeated under Mufti Mujahideen in the Islamic Clubs appendix. If you haven't already, please read them. Understanding the fundamental underpinnings of Islamic terrorism is the real purpose of this timeline.
If you are curious as to why we called the systematic murder of one million Christian Armenians at the hand of Muslim Turks the third most horrific exhibition of Islam in the past one hundred years, it is because the Nazi Holocaust was at least five times greater than it would have been, and thus ultimately six times larger in scale than the Ottoman slaughter of Armenians, because of the influence of the Muslim Mufti Muhammad Hajj Husseini. Also, the fundamentalist Arab Muslim government in the Sudan has systematically slaughtered 2.7 million African Animists and Christians, exiling, robbing, raping, and mutilating that many more over the past 25 years, making the Sudan Islam's second most horrific terrorist display.
Relatively little is known about the New Armenian Resistance because it was a splinter of the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia. The parent organization came to exist to increase awareness of the Armenian genocide and to further the cause of Armenian independence. They wanted the world to know that in 1895 and then again in 1915, the Islamic government of Turkey attempted to eliminate the two million population Armenian minority living within its borders. The death toll between the two Islamic campaigns against Christians reached 1.3 million people. The righteous indignation of the Armenian survivors grew with time because Turkey added fuel to the fire they had built by refusing to acknowledge the scope of the slaughter, refusing to accept responsibility for it, or to apologize publicly to their victims. The Turkish constitution goes so far as to criminalize public discussion of the genocide. So I feel no pity for representatives of the Turkish government.
By the early 1970s the survivors of the Armenian genocide resorted to violence as a means of redressing their grievances. The Armenians had hoped that, as the Nazi Holocaust had increased international support for the founding of Israel, increased awareness of the Armenian genocide might help them gain an independent homeland. The mission was worthy, but their methods were not. And the reason for the latter was that the membership of the ASALA was heavily influenced by Marxist doctrine, and thus they were immoral, misguided souls.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armenia became an independent, sovereign state, thereby fulfilling one of the two objectives of the ASALA and ARA. But it did not solve the bigger problem - that of ignorance and tolerance.
- January 1978: Student protests against the secular government of Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran, began a wave of political/religious unrest and violent clashes between police and demonstrators. Throughout the year, increasing anti-Shah activities were inspired by Muslim fundamentalists seeking to establish an Islamic state under their control. On September 9th, the Shah's troops opened fire on protestors, killing several hundred.
While most historians lay the demise of Iran's somewhat secular government at Jimmy Carter's feet for his abandoned the Shah, there is more to the story. Convinced they could bribe people into the behavior they desired, the CIA covertly paid the anti-Shah Iranian Shi'ite clerics in exile in France $400,000,000 a year, ostensibly so that they would not depose the pro-American, anti-Soviet, Muhammad Reza Pahlavi regime. Carter suspended those payments less than six months prior to the time the Islamic revolution capitalized on the power vacuum created by the withdrawal of support for the secular government.
While the Shah was a horrible choice as an ally, and while bribing a nation's enemies is immoral, once a country starts influencing the affairs of other nations by promoting one oppressive regime over another, when the unsupported group rises to power, the new regime which is automatically hostile to the puppeteer. The Islamic revolution in Iran should have taught Americans that lesson, but it didn't, because the failure was repeated in Iraq.
- January 3, 1978: A bomb was defused two minutes before it was set to explode in the Egyptian Embassy in West Germany.
- January 5, 1978: Said Hammami was a Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) spokesman in Britain. He believed that Palestinian coexistence with Israel was possible and thus was considered to be a "moderate" Muslim by the West. Good, jihadist Muslims are told in the Qur'an how to handle Muslims who do not dedicate themselves to conquering, converting, and/or killing non-Muslims. As a result, the "hypocrite" Hammami was assassinated in his office in Mayfield, England.
- January 8, 1978: An Armenian revolutionary group claimed responsibility for three terrorist attacks in Izmir, Turkey. The anonymous caller said the bombings of an oil refinery, bus and train station were conducted by the Justice Commandos for the Armenian Genocide. The spokesperson said the attacks were motivated by the "Turkish Army's massacres of whole populations in 1915.".
The Justice Commandos for the Armenian Genocide was founded in 1975. They were dedicated to establishing an independent Armenian state and to exposing the fact that Turkey (then, the Islamic Ottoman Empire) was responsible for perpetrating a murderous genocide against the Armenian people in 1915. When the two million population was expelled from their homes, and driven from their land in Turkey, a substantial percentage of the survivors crossed over into Russian territory and settled in a region that later became the Soviet Republic of Armenia. The majority of those who escaped death, formed communities abroad, the largest of which was in the United States.
Unlike other anti-Turkish Armenian groups, the JCAG were not socialists. They relied on private funding, mostly from Armenians in the United States who were as opposed to Islamic Turkey as they were to Communist Russia. The majority of the JCAG attacks were against Turkish diplomatic personnel and on Turkish commercial and tourism interests. Turkish diplomats were assassinated in Los Angeles and Boston, while embassies and Turkish Airlines offices were attacked both in the United States and Europe. The JCAG remained sensitive to public opinion and did not target non-Turkish interests.
The JCAG's terrorist activities officially ended in 1983, when the group changed monikers and began operating as the Armenian Revolutionary Army. Although the last attack by the ARA outside Turkey was in 1985, Armenians continued to target the nation that had treated them so poorly.
More recently, with the demise of the Soviet Union and the rise of fundamentalist Islam in the Caucasus region, the JCAG/ARA reconstituted itself with a new focus, Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan is populated by ethnic Armenians and they are once again being terrorized by Islam.
- January 8, 1978: Three people were wounded when a hand grenade exploded in the East Jerusalem bus station - a facility populated with Muslim Arabs. Filled with more hate than sense, the Palestinian jihadists terrorized their own people to dissuade peaceful Palestinians from using these buses to go to work in Israel. They would rather have their people live in poverty and endure 40% unemployment, than associate with Jews.
- January 10, 1978: A man walking his dog in Brussels, Belgium, found two U.S.-made armor-piercing anti-tank rockets aimed at the Israeli Embassy. The Islamic terrorists had tried to make their own launching device - one powered by a car battery. Fortunately, suffering from corrosive nature of Islam, they wired the device incorrectly. No group stood up to take credit for yet another Islamic stupidity and immorality but the Black_September Organization was suspected.
- January 19, 1978: An explosion damaged the Egypt Travel Agency in Berlin. Islamic jihadists considered the government of Egypt insufficiently Islamic.
- January 19, 1978: Bombs were detonated near the American-owned Discount Bank in central Paris and at a school in Paris attended by Americans. Police found pamphlets swearing revenge for the death of PFLP/PLO affiliated terrorist leader Andreas Baader in a West German prison.
- January 21, 1978: Two large bombs destroyed two American office buildings in Thessaloniki, Greece just a few hours before the scheduled arrival in Athens of U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. No one claimed responsibility for the predawn assault on the U.S. Information Service and American Express Bank and travel agency, but the Greeks had ample reason to be hostile to the United States.
The following day, another bomb was thrown into the U.S. Cultural Center in Ankara.
- January 25, 1978: Three men fired automatic weapons at a U.S. military van near Izmir, Turkey. The Turkish driver and an American enlisted man were wounded. Turkish officials said that the Begumcans Cell was responsible for the attack because they were known to conduct anti-American terrorism.
- January 29, 1978: Dynamite was used to blow up the Tunisian Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. The Tunisian Revolutionary National Organization, a Marxist Muslim gang, claimed credit.
- January 29, 1978: In Chad, the FROLINAT (Front de Libération Nationale du Tchad or the National Liberation Front of Chad) terrorist organization claimed to have killed all those on board a DC3 that the group shot down with antiaircraft guns. The same day, they attacked another plane with antiaircraft fire, this time a DC4, but the French crew survived.
- February 1, 1978: The Palestinian Arab Revolutionary Army announced that they injected exported Israel oranges with mercury to sow panic and wreck Israel's economy. Five Dutch children fell ill, prompting European officials to check thousands of oranges. Over the next week, mercury-spiked oranges were found in Holland, West Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium. The Israeli citrus was spiked with mercury in Rotterdam where the oranges and lemons were repackaged for sale in European stores.
When the Arab Revolutionary Army claimed responsibility, they said, "We do not intend to kill people in nations that import the oranges but to sabotage the Israel economy." Since they poisoned five children before they made their announcement, it was one of many lies.
A London woman found an Israeli orange spiked with mercury in a bag of fruit she bought in a London store on February 7th, making England the fifth country where poisoned fruit was discovered.
- February 3, 1978: The National Liberation Front of Chad captured the country's main airport at Faya-Largeau. They killed 100 government troops and took Pierre-Andre Kummerling, a Swiss electrical engineer, and Christian Masse, a Frenchman, hostage. It was reported that the Marxist Muslim terrorists demanded a ransom of $2.5 million and the withdrawal of 300 French military advisers from Chad.
The Libyan-backed, Sudan-trained, Chad National Liberation Front (FROLINAT, Front de Libération Nationale du Tchad) was the result of a merger between the Chadian National Union and General Union of the Children of Chad. These Marxist Muslim terrorist organizations were formed in the Sudan by Muslims who fled the anti-Islamic policies of Chadian President François Tombalbaye. FROLINAT was led by Ahmed Hassan Musa, an Islamist with close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Its parent, the Chadian National Union was led by Ibrahim Abatcha, a Muslim who trained with the North Korean military.
- February 3, 1978: A Pakistani Muslim armed with a grenade hijacked a 747 flight from Islamabad carrying 357 passengers. Fortunately for most of those aboard, the jihadist accidentally set off the grenade. While the Muslim was not killed in the blast, with his one weapon gone, he was subdued and the plane landed safely.
- February 5, 1978: The Mexican Consulate in New York City was bombed by a group claiming to be the Anti-Communist Latin American Army. A spokesman for the group demanded the freedom of the "Anti-Communist Cubans, Oreste Ruiz, Gaspar Jiminez, and Gustavo Castillo" who were arrested by Mexican authorities for their role in the attempted kidnap and murder of two Cuban officials in Merida, Mexico, in July 1976.
- February 7, 1978: In the Philippines, three Ananda Marga members stabbed an Indian embassy official. Although he was stabbed in the chest and throat he survived the attack.
Five days later in Australia, the Ananda Marg Yoga Society bombed the Hilton hotel in Sydney where leaders from a dozen Asian and Pacific countries were holding a Commonwealth conference. Three people were killed and seven were injured.
The Ananda Marga Yoga Society is a Hindu-based multicultural humanist religious movement founded in India in 1955 by Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar. They practice a contemporary form of Tantric Yoga and dedicate themselves to "self-realization and humanity." Their religion simply replaced God with man.
The Ananda Marga follow Sarkar's doctrine of Progressive Utilization Theory which dealt with ending social and economic injustice through socialism and multiculturalism. This theory led the group to oppose, often violently, traditional schools of Indian thought and the Indian caste system.
Ananda Marga was held responsible for a number of terrorist attacks in the 1970s. The vast majority of these were against Indian diplomatic and business targets abroad, most often in Australia, where the group had many followers. Ananda Marga also attacked Russian interests and its members were arrested with maps of the U.S. Embassy in Thailand.
Although Ananda Marga has ceased to carry out terrorist attacks, it continues to flourish as a religious movement. As a testimony to people's inability to think, and to their self-serving natures, Ananda Marga has become one of the best-known New Age religious movements in the West. The religion has centers in over 160 countries.
- February 14, 1978: In El Salvador, leftist guerrillas belonging to the People's Liberation Army bombed and machine gunned the Nicaraguan Embassy in San Salvador. The Marxists called it a "symbolic" attack against Nicaraguan President Anastasio Somoza.
- February 14, 1978: Palestinian terrorists set off a bomb next to a bus in downtown Jerusalem. Two people were killed and 35 more were injured, many seriously.
- February 15, 1978: An incendiary device was thrown into the home of an Egyptian official associated with the World Bank. A group called the Jewish Committee for Concern claimed responsibility for the second such incident in a week. An anonymous caller said that the group had thrown the bomb to protest a proposed sale of U.S. fighter planes to Egypt, knowing that the aircraft would be financed by the World Bank and used to kill Jews. Convincing Egyptians to purchase American arms rather than Russian weapons had been the chief objective of Jimmy Carter's Camp David Accords.
- February 16, 1978: A bomb rocked the USIS building in Turkey.
- February 17, 1978: In one of many events that prompted Palestinian Muslims to replace electronic detonators with human ones on their explosive devices, the PLO put a time bomb in a trash can in the main square of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The bomb killed one Muslim from the West Bank and seriously wounded another. No Jewish students were injured.
- February 18, 1978: The IAS Bi-national Center in Tabriz, Iran was attacked by Islamic students.
- February 18, 1978: Yusuf el Sebai, former Egyptian Cultural (Islamic) Minister and editor of Egypt's Al Ahram newspaper, was assassinated by two Muslim terrorists at the Hilton Hotel in Nicosia, Cyprus. Sebai was a close friend of President Sadat and was Secretary General of the Afro-Asian Peoples' Solidarity Organization which was meeting on the island.
The Islamic jihadists pinned him down in the hotel lobby and proceeded to shoot him several times in the head. The terrorists said that they killed Sebai "because he published good things about Israel and because he had accompanied President Sadat on his November ‘77 trip to Israel.".
The Muslims followed Muhammad example, assassinating someone whom their prophet would have labeled a "hypocrite." Knowing that Muhammad also kidnapped civilians and held them for ransom, the fundamentalist Muslim murderers in Cyprus took thirty hostages and threatened to kill them unless they were given a plane.
Following negotiations, the Islamic terrorists were taken to a jet that flew them and their hostages out of Cyprus. They were denied landing in the Middle East and the so plane returned to Cyprus, where the terrorists were captured and the hostages rescued.
The good Muslims, Zayet Hussein Al Ali of Kuwait and Samir Mohammed Khadar of Jordan, were sentenced to be hanged. However, in November l978, Cyprus President Spyros Kyprianou commuted the death sentences to life imprisonment "in the general interests of Cyprus which is waging a war for physical survival ." Whether one agrees with capital punishment or not, downgrading the sentence of these terrorists along with admitting that it was being done to avoid the wrath of Islam, was an astounding emboldening event for jihadists everywhere.
- February 19, 1978: In Columbia, terrorists invoking the name of the dead German PFLP terrorist, Andreas Baader, claimed responsibility for bombing the Bogota hotel office of Lufthansa.
The Baader-Meinhof Group was a violent Marxist Muslim gang that emerged from West Germany in the late 1960s. On April 2, 1968, Andreas Baader, the group's founder, and his girlfriend Gudrun Ensslin, bombed a Frankfurt department store. A journalist named Ulrike Meinhof helped Baader escape prison in May 1970, giving rise to the name. Following the prison break, Meinhof and Baader enrolled in a terrorist training camp run by the Palestinian Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
Returning from the Middle East, Baader, Meinhof, and Ensslin engaged in a violent terrorist spree of bombings, abductions, and firearm attacks. Baader-Meinhof Group members were misled by a mix of Marxism and Islam. Baader, Meinhof, and Ensslin terrorized West Germany with PFLP support until their capture in 1972. On May 8, 1976, Ulrike Meinhof hung herself in prison. A year later, Baader and Ensslin also killed themselves in prison. The coordinated suicides brought an end to West Germany's Baader-Meinhof chapter. However, others would kill in their names.
- February 26, 1978: In the Philippines, Islamic terrorists from the Moro National Liberation Front kidnapped French Finance Ministry official Pierre Huguet. He was taking pictures with his tour group in Zamboanga when he was pushed off a bridge and plucked out of the water by jihadists lurking in a boat below. The terrorists released Mr. Huguet unharmed two weeks later when the Philippine authorities agreed to reimburse the Muslims for the expenses incurred during their crime.
It's one thing to pay some arbitrary ransom, but to ask for and receive a terrorism expense check in some sort of cordial business agreement is a special kind of whacky. Reimbursing a criminal for their out of pocket costs makes terrorism seem like a legitimate enterprise. This is not a game. The stakes could not be higher.
Following a failed 1977 accord between Moro National Liberation Front and the Philippine government, the MNLF's second-in-command broke away from the terrorist club and Hashim Salamat created the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. But other than a new name and a promotion, philosophical foundations of the splinter group were identical to its predecessor.
The MILF is a fundamentalist/salafi Islamic organization attempting to follow Muhammad's terrorist example and Allah's orders to wage war until the world submits to Islam. The Moro Islamic Liberation Front demands a fully independent Islamic state in the southern Philippines. In advance of this goal, the MILF has used terrorist attacks and kidnapping throughout the 1980s and 1990s. However, deciding to use deception and strike on two fronts, by the late 1990s the Moro Islamic Liberation Front began negotiations for an autonomous Muslim region. This ass akin to Yasser Arafat's and Bill Clinton's Oslo Accords creating an autonomous region within Israel that would be controlled by the PLO and then using it to destroy what remained of the Jewish state.
In June, 2001, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Philippine president Gloria Arroyo signed a peace agreement. It would be among the dumbest things this woman would ever do. Not only were many horrendous terrorist attacks claimed under the name of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front after June 2001, an increasing number of attacks were perpetrated by the MILF's new affiliates: the Abu Sayyaf Group and Jemaah Islamiyah. It was as if the Philippine president didn't understand that the problem was Islam or that the MILF was just one of a thousand symptoms.
This ignorance is what led President Gloria Arroyo, in December 2004, to announce that she had formed a joint organization to clear the southern Philippines of criminal elements and operatives by using the MILF terrorist organization. The Abu Sayyaf Group and Jemaah Islamiyah that she wanted removed were partners in crime and religion with the MILF so this was political pandering at its best. It was like America partnering with the PLO to rid the PA territories of HAMAS and Islamic Jihad, only worse since the Filipino organizations were intertwined and not rivals.
- March 4, 1978: A bomb exploded near the Iraqi embassy in Paris. The same day, another bomb exploded in the vicinity of the Iraqi embassy in Brussels. It was Islam's version of shuttle diplomacy.
- March 4, 1978: Roman Catholic Croat terrorists in league with Islam bombed the Yugoslav consulate in San Francisco.
- March 10, 1978: Three bombs exploded under cars owned by Turkish diplomats in Athens, injuring a Turk, two policemen and a passerby. Secret Armenian Army perpetrated the attack to expose the world to the Islamic genocide of Armenians in 1915.
- March 11, 1978: Eleven Palestinian al-Fatah terrorists, led by Dalal Mughrabi, the Susan B. Anthony of Islamic Palestinian murderers, left PLO bases in Lebanon snuck ashore in Zodiac inflatable boats near Haifa. They shot some civilians, seized a bus, shot some more people, and raced to the outskirts of Tel Aviv. Then during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli military forces in Herzliya, the jihadists blew up the bus, killing even more people. The Israeli Defense Force unit trying to thwart the Islamic terrorists was led by Ehud Barak, who would later become Israel's Prime Minister.
All told, the Islamic terrorists led by Dalal Mughrabi killed 35 Israelis and an American nature photographer named Gail Rubin. An additional 72 people were wounded in the Muslim assault. Nine of the jihadists were killed, and the other two were captured. In October, 1979, the two teenage Muslim terrorists were sentenced to life terms plus 10 years, in spite of clamors for the death penalty from Israeli citizens.
The attack became known as the Coastal Road Massacre. The Palestinian Authority, reveling in the death of Jews, named a girls' school in Hebron after Dalal Mughrabi to honor her murderous mission. Morally lost, the United States helped fund that school's construction.
Dalal Mughrabi's name is commonly associated with courses of study in Palestinian schools as well as to police and military training facilities. There is a Palestinian summer camp for Muslim children called "Shahida Dalal Mughrabi Summer Camp." Yet the West is oblivious to the fact Islam reveres mass murders. There remains the mistaken belief that they think the same way we do and that we all want the same things out of life. It is this parochial ignorance that breeds mistakes like the invasion of Iraq where Americans actually thought they would be received as liberators in a land whose religion means submission.
Islam is evil. Its morality is the antithesis of Judeo-Christianity. Its submit and obey mantra is the opposite of freedom and choice, the values which underpin Western governments. Muhammad violated each of the Ten Commandments. According to the Qur'an murder, stealing, adultery, and bearing false witness are good. While it is true that Muslims and non-Muslims alike want the best for their children, in the Islamic culture, the highest achievement is admission into Allah's paradise. And the only guaranteed way in is to die as a jihadist killing infidels in Allah's cause. Further, according to Muhammad's Hadith, double bonus points are awarded to those kill Jews. A children's summer camp with "Shahida Dalal Mughrabi" in its name should help you appreciate the chasm between Judeo-Christian and Islamic cultures.
Since Dalal Mughrabi perpetrated this mass murder as a member of Fatah, let's take a moment and examine the history and nature of the party with whom she was affiliated. Al-Fatah, a vocalized acronym for "the victorious conquest," was one of many bastard children of the Muslim Brotherhood. Its principle founder, Yasser Arafat, became an active member of the Muslim Brotherhood while attending King Faud University in Cairo, Egypt. He dropped out of school early to fight in Allah's Cause during the 1948 Israeli War of Independence. He claims to have been a member of the Mufti Mujahideen - the Muslim militia of the Grand Mufti Muhammad Hajj Husseini. It was a disciple of his horrid man, the Nazi-supporter responsible for the scale of the Holocaust, that Arafat learned to be an Islamic terrorist.
Al Fatah taunts a logo which contains two crossed assault rifles superimposed on the entire land of Israel covered in Islamic green. There are also Qur'anic slogans slathered on the graphic depiction of their mission encouraging jihad. Today, al-Fatah conducts its terrorist campaign under the name al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. If Fatah were the Nazi party, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigrades would be the SS.
In addition to Yasser Arafat, Fatah was founded in Kuwait by four other Marxist Muslim terrorists in 1959: Khalil El-Wazir, Salah Khalaf, Khalid al-Hasan, and Faruk Qaddumi. Their initial funding came exclusively from the Kuwaiti OPEC emirs but over time Fatah was financed by Egypt, the USSR's KGB, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Syria. The original ideology of Fatah utterly rejected the legitimacy of Israel and espoused violence as a means to drive all Jews out of greater Palestine - which they considered to be all of the Jewish state.
Fatah's first six years were secretive as the aspiring terrorist organization solicited funding from OPEC, training from the KGB, and weapons from surrounding Islamic governments. In the power vacuum that followed the Islamic defeat in the 1967 Islamic-Israeli War, Fatah offered a ray of hope in the blackness of Islam.
Fatah's first "successful" terrorist raid was in 1968 when their members bombed an Israeli school bus. While they suffered a horrendous defeat in the retaliatory strike which followed, and had to be rescued by the Jordanians, a Time Magazine cover story on Yasser Arafat and Fatah vaulted the Muslim murderer to international acclaim.
In 1969, Fatah aligned itself with the PLO, establishing themselves as the dominant faction within the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Arafat was appointed head of the PLO because his bombing of the Israeli school bus and resulting retaliatory skirmish had swelled his ranks with aspiring jihadists and filled his pockets with OPEC ooze. And so it was, from that point on Fatah and the PLO became synonymous.
Unable to stand up to the Israelis, the Islamic terrorist who made a career of using Muslim boys to bomb Jewish women and children, operated out of Jordan where he was protected by the Kingdom's army. But rotten fish stink and the murdering Palestinians wore out their welcome. In September 1970, the PLO/Fatah was expelled violently from Jordan in what became known as the Black_September assault. The Jordanian government killed as many as 20,000 Palestinian refugees in one month - many times more Palestinians than have been killed by the IDF over the past 60 years in Israel's defensive war against Islamic terrorism.
The Islamic terrorist organization known as Black_September, famous for the massacre of Jewish athletes at the Munich Olympic Games, was simply another name for al-Fatah and the PLO.
There is a lesson here, one that is well known in Islamic circles and yet ignored in the West. No one likes the so-called Palestinians. This is why they remain refugees in Islamic countries like Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, and why they are not integrated into their societies. It is why Jordan expelled them and why Egypt wouldn't take Gaza back when the Jews offered it to them along with the Sinai. The Palestinian Cause is touted only because it is anti-Semitic and thus consistent with Islam. If the Palestinians were not a thorn in Israel's side, no one would know of them or care about them. The problem of the "Palestinians" will never be resolved because no matter what is given to them, they will continue to be used as human weapons to injure Jews.
Following the PLO/Fatah's, now Black_September's, deadly expulsion from Jordan, the terrorist organization operated out of Lebanon, corrupting that nation and instigating a ruthless civil war in which tens of thousands of additional people died. Booted out of Lebanon, the PLO/Fatah were forced to disperse throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Yet despite Fatah's shifting bases, it consistently carried out attacks against Israeli targets in the Middle East and Western Europe.
As part of the 1993 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinians, Fatah recognized a reduced the state of Israel and allegedly renounced terrorism in exchange for autonomy over Muslim majority regions. However, Fatah inspired terrorism increased, proving that Muslims, like Marxists cannot be trusted. Further, the PLO never renounced its ambition to wipe the nation of Israel off the map. An amendment was proposed but never ratified. And even if the charter had been amended, it wouldn't have mattered. While Islamic voices are shrill, their actions speak louder than their words.
The Fatah/PLO became the Palestinian Authority with Arafat acting as dictator following Oslo. During his reign he personally stole $900,000,000 that was ostensibly provided to benefit the people he was abusing. During this time, the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a Fatah subsidiary, became one of the world's most lethal terrorist organizations. Having personally met with Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades terrorists, I can confirm that they took their orders from Arafat, that they existed to kill Jews, and that they were trained, funded, and armed by the United States. If you'd like to familiarize yourself with this unpleasant reality, read the title chapter of Tea With Terrorists - free at the www.ProphetOfDoom.net site.
You can read more about Fatah's early years and about its founder Yasser Arafat by going to March 21, 1968 in the Islamic Terrorism Timeline. To learn more about Arafat's sister organization, the PLO, visit the Palestinian Liberation Organization listing in this appendix on Islamic Terror Clubs.
- March 12, 1978: In a 2-for-1 mission, Muslims attacked a school and Americans at the same time. They bombed the car of the principal of the Tarsus American School in Adana, Turkey. Fortunately for the principal, the perpetrators of the Islamic version of a tack on a chair, managed to only blow off the car's fender and break some windows of nearby buildings. A typed note sent to the school signed by "TIP," stated that more bombs had been placed throughout the school's campus. None were found and there is no known group that goes by "TIP," so maybe it's an abbreviation for "Terrorize Infidel Principals.".
- March 12, 1978: In the Netherlands, Marines stormed a government complex in the northern Dutch city of Assen. They freed 70 hostages held by three Moluccan men. The gunmen called themselves the South Moluccan Suicide Commando.
One person was killed and four others were injured in the initial assault as the Moluccans stormed into the administrative building. Once inside, the young men captured 70 civil servants and offered to exchange them for the release of 21 jailed comrades, a plane out of the country, and a $13 million ransom. Premier Andries van Agt refused. So when the deadline passed and the terrorists pretended to kill a hostage, 60 Dutch marines entered the government complex, overpowered the gunmen, and captured their victims unharmed. The three perpetrators were sentenced to 15 years in prison.
The South Moluccan Suicide Commando group was created to coerce the Dutch government into supporting the secession of the South Molucca Islands from Islamic Indonesia. The term "suicide" in their name however, was misleading, as they only carried out one attack and it was not suicidal. In fact, they only killed one person.
SMSC was composed of relatively young Europeans, most of whom never lived in Indonesia or South Molucca. Unlike the rest of Indonesia, which is over 90% Islamic by religion and a majority Javanese by race, the people of South Molucca are predominantly Melanesian and are without a dominant faith.
Following Indonesia's independence from the Netherlands in 1949, residents of South Molucca, including former Dutch colonial soldiers and civil servants, feared that their interests would not be represented by the newly-created Islamic Republic of Indonesia. Thus in 1950, the Republic of the South Moluccas (Republik Maluku Selatan), declared its independence. Later that year, Indonesian forces moved into South Molucca to assert control. They were murderous and forced the RMS leadership to create a government-in-exile based in the Netherlands. Remnants of a new RMS still exist, but in very few numbers today, largely due to a concerted effort by Jakarta to root out all secessionist elements. While the Islamic regime in Indonesia is said to have slaughtered 700,000 people, the South Moluccan Suicide Commando group only carried out one terrorist attack, resulting in one fatality and four injuries.
- March 16, 1978: In response to the Coastal Road Massacre that occurred just a few days earlier, and which was perpetrated out of Lebanon, Israel launched Operation Litani and sent 25,000 IDF troops into southern Lebanon to thwart Muslim terrorist attacks by Fatah and the PLO.
- April 5, 1978: A Muslim on a motorcycle lobbed a hand grenade into the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan. The attack was perpetrated by those who blamed the U.S. for backing General Zia's overthrow of former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. It occurred shortly after the elected leader was sentenced to death by the military regime.
America did back Zia, and that is a crime. Zia was the patriarch of state-sponsored Islamic terrorism. The list of terror clubs his ISI aided and abetted includes the likes of al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
- April 26, 1978: In Israel, two West German tourists were killed and many others were wounded when an Islamic terrorist threw a grenade through an open window into a crowded tour bus on its way back to Jerusalem from Galilee.
- April 27, 1978: Islamic Afghanis celebrated the formation of the mujahideen Taliban government which had been equipped and sponsored by Pakistan and the United States.
- April 30, 1978: The ship Don Carlos was boarded by Muslim pirates in the South Philippines. They stole the cargo, took the 37 crew members and passengers hostage, and set the vessel adrift. The press only identified the bandits as "Muslim separatists," but they were almost certainly jihadists from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
- May 4, 1978: An Egyptian political refugee was assassinated in Paris. An anonymous caller said: "Today...the agent of KGB, Henry Curiel, militant of the Arab cause, traitor to France who adopted him, has been executed." The caller identified himself as a member of DELTA, a right-wing group responsible for other assassinations in France. Curiel was a supporter of Communist "liberation movements" in the Third World and also had assisted Islamic terrorist groups. He had been expelled from France but had obtained a delay in the expulsion.
- May 5, 1978: A bomb was detonated in Ankara, Turkey, damaging the U.S. International Communication agency.
- May 21, 1978: Three gunmen attacked passengers in the departure lounge of El Al at Orly Airport near Paris. French security police killed the terrorists. Three French tourists in a group that had booked an El Al flight to Tel Aviv were wounded. One policeman was killed and two were seriously injured.
One of the dead jihadists carried passports from Lebanon and Kuwait. The other two had Tunisian passports. They carried submachine guns as well as grenades and plastic explosives. There was no doubt that the perpetrators were Muslims and that their attack had been aimed at Jews even though there were no Israelis in the group waiting for the El Al plane.
A previously unknown entity calling itself the Organization of the Sons of Southern Lebanon claimed responsibility. The attack was made in Paris "to remind France of its colonial past." One of the gunmen was identified as Mahmud Awada, a Lebanese terrorist who led a group which assassinated Francis Meloy, the U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon, and his counselor, Robert Waring, in 1976 during the Lebanese civil war.
- May 26, 1978: In Uganda, Kenya's Ministry of Foreign Affairs claimed that a bomb exploded on his plane while it was parked at Entebbe airport. Conflicting reports indicated that the plane may have crashed after the bomb exploded during takeoff, killing former U.S. Cabinet Member Bruce MacKenzie, the pilot, and a visiting British businessman. Idi Amin and his Islamic regime had earned a bad reputation of being terrorists and sponsoring terror.
- May 30, 1978: Islamic gunmen fired into the U.S. Consulate in Adana, Turkey.
- June 2, 1978: Three young men assaulted the Turkish ambassador's car in Madrid, killing his wife, her brother, and a chauffeur. An anonymous telephone caller said the attack against Ambassador Zeki Kuneralp was "justice" for the 1915 massacre of Armenians in Turkey. The caller claimed that the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia was responsible. While the Armenians were not Muslims, their acts of terror were motivated by one of history's most ghoulish Islamic acts.
- June 2, 1978: In Israel, five people were murdered and 20 were severely injured in an explosion on a bus in Jerusalem. The bus was en route from the Arab Muslim section of East Jerusalem to the Jewish section in the west. The police suspected that the bomb had been placed on the bus by one or more Islamic terrorists. Mayor Teddy Kollek said he thought that the explosion was linked to plans for the forthcoming celebrations of the 11th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem following Israel's victory during the Six Day War. A news agency in Beirut reported that Palestinian jihadists calling themselves the General Command of the Palestinian Revolution's Forces had claimed credit for the mass murder and mutilation.
- June 15, 1978: In Kuwait, Ali Yasin, who was considered a "moderate" in the Palestinian movement by the West, and thus a "hypocrite apostate" in the Middle East, was assassinated. The terrorist political party Al Fatah, of which he was a member, accused Iraq of having instigated the murder. Al Fatah said in Beirut that the killing had been carried out by "cowards who are protected, sheltered, and guided by the intelligence services of Baghdad." Yasin was also a PLO leader so it appears the bad guys were treating each other badly.
- June 17, 1978: In Zimbabwe, Archie Dunaway, a white American Baptist evangelist, was stabbed to death by African terrorists at the Sanyati Mission Hospital, where he was director of the nursing school. His clinic was 120 miles west of Salisbury in what was Rhodesia.
The transition from European to African rule in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe was horrid. White Christian missionaries, healthcare providers, and farmers were the first to be murdered by roving gangs of thieves and thugs. The country plunged into chaos in a reign of senseless terror. While very little is known about the illiterate terrorists, their targets suggest a blend of Marxism and Islam - a corrosive concoction that was prevalent in the Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, Libya, Egypt, and Algeria.
- June 20, 1978: A group calling itself the Revolutionary Cell claimed responsibility for a bombing the Frankfurt office of an Israeli fruit importer. During this period, Marxist Muslim groups associated with the PFLP, now a PLO subsidiary, were conducting missions which pleased their OPEC supporters. They did so because terror is expensive and terrorists don't work for a living.
- June 21, 1978: In Lebanon, disgruntled Muslims fired at the Iraqi Embassy.
- June 23, 1978: African terrorists in Zimbabwe bayoneted, axed and clubbed to death eight British missionaries and four of their children at an Elim Mission School in the Vumba Mountains. Among the victims was a three week old child. Several other Christians were wounded in the attack. One Christian woman was raped.
On August 11th, Zimbabwe security forces said that they killed two of the attackers, but they could just have easily have murdered their rivals and justified the killings by associating the victims of one attack with another. The government went on to blame Robert Mugabe who was the leader of the Zimbabwe African National Union. He, however, denied responsibility. Others suggested that that Joshua Nkomo's Zimbabwe African Peoples Union was involved.
- June 23, 1978: Three African gunmen, believed to belong to the Zimbabwe African People's Union, murdered two West German missionaries as they stood in front of their home.
The Zimbabwe African Nationalist Union was Zimbabwe's most powerful nationalist organization and now forms the basis for the ruling party in Harare, the ZANU-PF. It has been led since the 1960s by Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's current Executive President. The ZANU began as a militia opposed to British colonial rule. As colonialism in Africa was ending in the 1960s, the UK refused to grant independence to Zimbabwe, then called Rhodesia, which was under the minority regime of Ian Smith. British interest in gold and diamond mines was the actual reason for hanging on to their colonial treasure.
In addition to Smith's UDI, the other players in Zimbabwe's destruction were Mugabe's ZANU and Joshua Nkomo's Zimbabwe African People's Union (ZAPU). The ZANU received economic and military aid from China and espoused some socialist principles. The ZANU and ZAPU fought each other and the Rhodesian government. In addition to conducting guerilla warfare, the ZANU also targeted civilians and foreign missionaries in ruthless acts of terror.
The Civil War finally ended after British-mediated talks in 1980, leading to Mugabe's election as Prime Minister. Despite including Nkomo in his cabinet, Mugabe's ZANU and the ZAPU fought intermittently until 1987 when they merged their parties to form the ZANU-PF (Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front). Mugabe, whose title is now Executive President, changed the constitution in 1987 to insure that he would remain Zimbabwe's primary ruler. The ZANU-PF has since been accused of widespread electoral fraud, voter intimidation, and a lack of respect for civil rights. In 2000, Mugabe supported squatters in their violent confiscation of white-owned farms.
The ZANU-PF, who counted the ballots, said that they received the majority of votes in March 2005 elections. As a result, they control the impoverished state as if it were their own fiefdom.
- June 26, 1978: Another coup in Yemen led to the assassination of the leaders of the old regime.
- June 30, 1978: In Israel, a bomb planted by the Palestine Liberation Organization blasted a crowded marketplace in Jerusalem, killed two shoppers and wounded 47 more. The attack was contemporaneous with a the visits of West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher and U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale.
Six months later, on January 26, 1979, Israel troops found the PLO cell responsible for this and at least 10 other terrorist attacks. In their homes they uncovered a large cache of PLO weapons.
- July 1, 1978: Two rockets were fired at the Iraqi Embassy in Beirut by members of the PLO.
- July 3, 1978: In France, a former ETA Basque Separatist leader was critically injured when he was hit in the stomach by two machine-gun rounds. His wife was killed in the attack. This was one of countless examples that revealed that those who opposed the ETA were responsible for terrorizing the organization accused of terror.
- July 4, 1978: In France, a bomb damaged an office leased by the Palestine Liberation Organization in Paris. The police said a previously unknown group calling itself "Talion Law" claimed responsibility for the blast and said it was in retaliation for the PLO bombing of a Jerusalem market in which two Israelis were killed and 47 were injured. If true, it was too little, too late.
- July 9, 1978: In the U.K., Arab Muslims shot and killed former Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul Razzak al-Naif, as he walked away from London's Intercontinental Hotel. On July 26, Saadovn Chaker, reputed to be an Iraqi intelligence chief, was detained in London and charged with instigating Naif's murder.
- July 19, 1978: In Libya, five members of Yasser Arafat's Fatah attacked the Tripoli offices of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, killing two and wounding one Muslim.
- July 28, 1978: An attempt was made to assassinate Iraqi Ambassador Taha Ahmed al-Dawood in London. A woman tossed a grenade under the car he was about to enter. Two British citizens were wounded.
- July 31, 1978: Al Fatah Islamic terrorists seized the Iraqi Embassy in Paris in a hail of bullets. In an eight-hour assault, two French policemen and an Iraqi were killed. Six people were injured.
During the attack, the two Arabic-speaking Muslims threatened to kill eight hostages unless they received a plane to London to free a woman comrade. The woman whom the terrorists wanted to free was arrested in London on July 28th after a bomb went off under the Iraqi ambassador's car, injuring two bystanders. One of the gunmen claimed to be the brother of Said Hammami, a Palestine Liberation Organization representative slain in London earlier this year.
- August 2, 1978: In Pakistan, two Arab Muslims ambushed an Iraqi diplomat outside his consulate in Karachi. Guards killed one assailant and captured the other. Pakistani authorities said the gunmen were in their twenties and carried South Yemeni passports.
A spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization said that the mission was part of the "ongoing struggle between Iraqi communists and Baathists." The Baathists, who controlled Iraq, had executed some 20 socialists. However, it is more likely that the attack was part of the infighting that was occurring between Fatah and Abu Nidal's new group, Black June. Abu Nidal had been a senior Fatah leader but he had found himself on the outs with the terrorist group after he threatened to disrupt their Kuwaiti financing.
- August 2, 1978: In Lebanon, in another dispute between Islamic rivals, Iraq accused Palestinians of having fired at the car of Iraqi Ambassador Qassem al-Samawi during the night.
- August 3, 1978: In Kuwait, Palestinian sources claimed that an assassination attempt was made against PLO chief Yasser Arafat. They said the attack had been attempted in Lebanon, when Arafat's car, carrying Qatari diplomatic license plates, was fired on near Al-Masna' while the Ugly One was traveling from Beirut to Syria.
- August 3, 1978: Two Arab Muslims attacked the Paris offices of the Palestine Liberation Organization. They assassinated the PLO's senior representative, and killed another PLO member with a grenade. The PLO official, Izzedin Qalak, was hit with l6 bullets.
Izzedin Qalak was a victim of the rivalry between Yasser Arafat and Abu Nidal. An anonymous phone caller told the French media that the strike was conducted by the "Rejection Front of Stateless Palestinian Arabs," which was a fictitious name. Two Muslim Arabs, Husni Hatem, 26, and Assad Kayed, 22, were apprehended, put on trial for the killing, found guilty, and sentenced to 15 years after the court rejected a defense plea that their crime was political.
- August 3, 1978: An Arab Muslim terrorist bombed a children's clothing store in Tel Aviv's Carmel Market. A total of 49 Israeli shoppers were wounded in the blast. The Palestine Liberation Organization's militant command issued a statement in Beirut stating one of its special units was responsible for the bombing.
Israeli warplanes quickly retaliated by striking PLO camps in Lebanon. The main target was a terrorist training facility used to sneak Muslim death squads across the border and onto missions in Israel.
- August 5, 1978: Islamic terrorists firing submachine guns, assaulted the Islamabad, Pakistan office of the Palestine Liberation Organization and killed four jihadists. It was the latest skirmish in the ongoing conflict between PLO members loyal to Abu Nidal and PLO members aligned with Yasser Arafat. Witnesses said the two Islamic gunmen were trying to assassinate Yousaf Abu Hantash, Yasser Arafat's representative in Pakistan. They apparently were unable to pick him out from a group of a dozen exchange students in the office. In addition to the Islamic student, a Pakistani police guard, a PLO terrorist, and the office radio operator were killed in the raid.
- August 13, 1978: A powerful bomb containing more than one hundred pounds of plastic explosives, destroyed a nine-story building in the Palestinian quarter of West Beirut, killing 150 to 200 Muslims. The target of the blast appeared to have been the PLO splinter group, the Palestinian Liberation Front, whose headquarters were housed inside. The PLF opposed Arafat's Fatah in its policy over Israel and its cooperation with the UN.
The only problem with that theory, was that the building also housed the offices for Fatah and members of both groups were killed in the blast. Although leaders of PLF blamed the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine for the attack, the PFLP denied involvement.
- August 15, 1978: Croatian Ustashi terrorists planted a bomb on a United Nations window ledge in New York and also in a locker in Grand Central Station. They did so to encourage authorities to the release Steve Bilandzich, a German citizen of Croatian birth who was the founder and chief of the Croatian People's Resistance. He had been arrested in Dusseldorf, Germany for attempting to kill the Yugoslav ambassador to West Germany.
Neither device exploded. Notes found with the bombs claimed that they were planted by a group that sought the separation of Croatia from Yugoslavia. In May 1982, ten Croatian nationalists were put on trial in Manhattan for plotting this attack as well as for the murders of rival Croatians. Four defendants were acquitted and six were convicted.
During the Clinton administration, the US and NATO fought a war on behalf of these terrorists, helping them establish a neo-Nazi state. To justify this crime, the Serbian Christians of whom 800,000 were slaughtered by the Croatians in genocidal rage were painted as the villains rather than victims.
- August 17, 1978: In Libya, a Fatah member fired three shots at Husayn Muhammad Ali, an Iraqi embassy employee. Ali died of his wounds. The alleged perpetrator, Mahmud Ayat Ahmad al-Katib, who was 25, was captured. He was carrying a Jordanian passport. He said that he was told to assassinate the Iraqi ambassador by Khalid Abdullah, who provided him with the gun.
- August 17, 1978: Two Croatian gunmen took control of the West German consulate in Chicago, taking eight hostages. They demanded the release of fellow terrorist, Stjepan Bilandzic, a Croatian being held in Cologne. Bilandzic's brother, McLaughlin Bilandzic, convinced them that it was futile to hold out. After a 10-hour siege, the Croats (one of whom was a Chicago resident) released the hostages.
Bilandzic was the founder of a terrorist organization called the Croatian People's Resistance. Their aim was the establishment of an independent Croatia from Yugoslavia based upon Ustashi Fascist principles. On December 2nd, Kelava, 36, and Kodzoman, 32, were acquitted of kidnap charges, but were convicted on a lesser charge of imprisoning West German Vice Consul Werner Ickstadt after seizing the consulate.
- August 20, 1978: Arab Muslim terrorists, firing submachine guns and throwing grenades, attacked an Israeli El Al airline bus carrying crew members to London's Europa Hotel. They murdered a stewardess and wounded nine others. One terrorist was killed when a grenade exploded in his face during a shootout with an El Al security guard. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-Special Operations Branch, claimed credit for the uncivil act. The same group claimed responsibility for last year's Lufthansa hijacking to Mogadishu.
- August 25, 1978: In Israel, two Islamic terrorists were captured by an IDF navy patrol while on their way to attack Israeli civilians. Yasser Arafat's Fatah had sent the jihadists from his bases in Lebanon.
- August 31, 1978: Lebanese Shia cleric, Inman Musa Sadr, disappeared in Libya demonstrating the uneasy relationship between the goals of fundamentalist Islamic religious leaders and Marxist Muslim political leaders. Sadr was the spiritual leader of Lebanon's Muslim population and the founder of the terrorist organization called AMAL, meaning "hope" in Arabic. He had called for the overthrow of the Lebanese and Libyan governments, hoping to replace them with Shia theocracies.
- September 8, 1978: In Greece, young Lebanese jihadist was arrested in Athens after he threw a firebomb at the French consulate. The man, identified as Azzan Hassan Masri, 27, of Beirut, was seized before he could throw two additional Molotov cocktails he was carrying.
- September 13, 1978: A group calling itself the "Jewish Armed Resistance" telephoned newspapers to claim responsibility for the bombing of a car owned by Dr. Malcolm Kerr. The car sustained approximately $700 damage. Kerr was President Carter's advisor on Middle Eastern affairs and a terrorist sympathizer. The group called the Camp David summit "a waste of time." Sadly, it was far worse than that.
- September 17, 1978: The Camp David Accords were signed, whereby Israel gave the Sinai back to Egypt. The U.S. further rewarded Egyptian aggression against Israel because Carter promised to pay Egypt $2.5 billion annually. They would use the money to build up the military Israel had successfully destroyed. Most Islamic nations rejected the accord and reiterated their call for Israel's destruction.
- September 20, 1978: Terrorists trying to plant a bomb aboard a bus in Tel Aviv were captured before they could execute their plan.
- September 30, 1978: A bomb was thrown at Egypt's Istanbul Consulate. The same day, a bomb was detonated near the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul.
- October 1, 1978: A bomb was thrown into the Israeli Consulate in Istanbul, completing the Camp David trifecta.
- October 3, 1978: Bulgarian Communists were devious in their attacks in Britain, plating a tiny poison pill into the food a defector in late September. A second Bulgarian defector was found dead in his home in London three weeks after Georgi Markov was stabbed with a poison-tipped umbrella.
Simeonov was employed by BBC as a translator. The death of Simeonov confirmed that a Communist agent was killing defectors and critics of the Bulgarian government in the UK. On December 19, 1979, a French court sentenced a Bulgarian-born spy, Dino Dinev, to three years in prison for working for the Bulgarian secret service and tracing political refugees through contacts in French counterintelligence.
In this regard Communism and Islam were the same. Both religions were so vile, so counter productive, so obviously false and faulty, they retain adherents by threatening to kill anyone who abandons them. The Qur'an says: "Kill any believer who abrogates his faith.".
- October 3, 1978: The sinking by the Israeli Navy of a bomb-laden freighter off the Sinai coast foiled a sensational Al Fatah terrorist plot that could have cost the lives of hundreds of vacationers. The Islamic terrorists were launching a seaborne assault on Israel's Red Sea port of Eilat. Oil tank farms and oil pumping installations on the Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline to the Mediterranean were the intended target of the unsuccessful operation.
Fatah's PLO planned to fire 42 Katyusha rockets into the port of Eilat and then ram the 600-ton boat, crammed with more than three tons of explosives, onto the beach which was crowed with tourists. The ship's keel was designed to have exploded on impact with the sand.
The seven terrorists aboard the vessel were captured, the heavy armament was seized, and the ship was sunk.
- October 5, 1978: A bomb placed outside Madison Square Garden in New York City exploded. Miraculously, no one was injured. Only twenty minutes earlier, the area had been packed with fans who were leaving a Nick's basketball game. The Omega-7 anti-Communist group claimed credit for the attack, saying that it was in protest of Cuban boxers participating in a match at the Garden. This was one of many proofs that anti-Castro militants committed more acts of terror than did the Cuban regime.
- October 10, 1978: In Iran, six Muslim students attacked the Iraqi Consulate in Khorramshahr and tried to set it on fire. One security guard was killed and one of the attackers was wounded.
- October 11, 1978: In Iran, a pipe bomb exploded after being thrown through the window of a bus belonging to Bell Helicopter company in Isfahan. Three Americans were wounded.
- October 13, 1978: Bruno Busic, a 39-year-old Yugoslav journalist living in exile in London, was assassinated as he returned to the apartment of a friend in Paris. Busic, a member of the Croat nationalist organization Matika, had been warned by French police to stay away from Paris because Yugoslav killers had been assigned to murder him.
- October 15, 1978: In East Germany, a bomb was found outside a Jewish restaurant in Berlin. A passerby took it home but later called police after which the bomb detonated. A second bomb was found under a car parked in front of the Jewish Cultural Center and Synagogue.
- October 17, 1978: Gunmen entered a Palestinian library in Paris, held its occupants at gunpoint and started a fire. Fighters for the Defense of Israel claimed responsibility although nothing is known of the group.
- October 20, 1978: A bomb was detonated at the offices of Pan American Airlines in Istanbul.
- October 21, 1978: In Ethiopia, Eritrean jihadists kidnapped George Krois, an American pilot, when he landed a helicopter in near a terrorist training camp to repair a UN plane. He was held captive for three months.
- October 23, 1978: In Iran, buses carrying Lockheed Aircraft employees to their homes in Tehran were attacked by a group of Islamic student wielding bricks and rocks. Four Americans were injured.
- October 25, 1978: In Iran, a bomb was thrown through the window of a French restaurant in Isfahan. The same day in Iran, the only cocktail authorized by Islamic clerics, a Molotov cocktail, was thrown into a youth hostel in Isfahan. Sixteen infidels, most of whom were Americans, were staying in the hostel when it was attacked.
- October 26, 1978: A mob of Turkish students attacked a van carrying U.S. cultural attaché John F. Ritchotte. They ordered him and his two aides out and then burned the vehicle at a busy Istanbul intersection.
- November 1, 1978: In Iran, a car owned by a U.S. Air Force officer was set on fire in Tehran.
- November 1, 1978: In Australia, delegates to an international Assyrian Congress meeting in Sydney were made ill from poisoned food. They delegates from Iraq poisoned them because they had criticized the Iraqi government's use of violence.
- November 11, 1978: In West Germany, three Croatian terrorists attacked several Yugoslav citizens in Konstanz, killing one and wounding two others.
- November 13, 1978: Three Iranians threw Molotov cocktails at the car of the Deputy Director of the Oil Services Company in Ahvaz. The American chased the attackers without success as his car caught on fire and exploded.
- November 14, 1978: Iranian Muslims were clearly trying to send Americans a message: "We don't like you." Today they placed two bombs in a bus used to transport American workers to and from their residences.
- November 19, 1978: In Israel, a bomb exploded on a bus carrying tourists. Four people were killed and 30 were injured. Passengers included citizens from Great Britain, Sweden, Canada and Belgium.
An Al Fatah spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack which occurred on the first anniversary of Egyptian President Sadat's visit to Jerusalem. The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine also claimed credit. An Arab Muslim woman, Fatmah Kaasur, was arrested in February by Israeli security authorities on suspicion of planting the bomb.
- November 22, 1978: A 36-year-old Croat in Glendale, California, was assassinated in front of his home. He had been active in Croatian political groups and had received an extortion letter in June that appeared to come from a rival Croatian group in Germany. The FBI said at least 25 such letters had been mailed to Croatian-Americans in New York, Cleveland, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
- November 24, 1978: The Egyptian consulate in the United States was firebombed. The Jewish Defense League claimed responsibility.
- November 27, 1978: The Socialist/Islamist Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) was founded in Turkey. PKK terrorists favor this date in their raids. While Turkey had ruthlessly annihilated countless Kurds, the PKK terrorist response was anything but civil.
- November 30, 1978: In Iran, a pipe bomb exploded in the apartment of a member of the U.S. military in Tehran injuring two people.
- December 3, 1978: In Iran, guards at the Egyptian Embassy were attacked.

- December 12, 1978: In Israel, terrorists from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) claimed to have deployed a time bomb that killed five Israelis in the Qiryat Arbaa settlement in the Hebron area.
- December 17, 1978: A bomb exploded on a Jerusalem bus wounded 22 passengers. Five U.S. citizens were among those burned and mutilated in the blast. Arafat's PLO claimed responsibility.
- December 22, 1978: In Iran, a gasoline bomb, a.k.a., a Molotov Cocktail, was thrown through the window of an American's Tehran home.
- December 23, 1978: During the night, a U.S. military official's car was set on fire in Tehran by angry Islamic students. The same night, an American Texaco oil official, Paul Grimm, was assassinated in Ahva by Shia jihadists. His Iranian colleague, Malek Bourojerdi, was also killed. The murders contributed to the dramatic economic decline in Iran.
- December 26, 1978: The cars of two Americans in Izmir, Turkey were bombed.
