Islamic Terrorism Timeline
- January 2, 1990: Christians became popular targets in Central and South America. Two Roman Catholic nuns, one of whom was an American, were killed and an American bishop was wounded in a terrorist assault in Nicaragua.

- March 7, 1990: An Islamic fundamentalist group in Turkey claimed credit for the assassination of a Turkish journalist who had been critical of Muslim fundamentalists. His driver was also killed in the attack which took place outside the journalist's home in Istanbul. Muslims are intolerant of criticism, truth, freedom, and choice.

- April 28, 1990: The Islamic Front for the Liberation of Palestine claimed credit for bombing the Jordanian-Soviet Friendship Society in Amman, Jordan. The attack was in response to increased Soviet Jewish immigration to Israel.
The al-Jabhah al-Islamiyah Litahrir Filastin, or Islamic Front for the Liberation of Palestine was a Lebanese subsidiary of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). While they were associated with the PLO, the more religious IFLP criticized Yasser Arafat for condemning Islamic Fedayeen (meaning: those willing to die, a.k.a., a suicide bomber) attacks against Jews. The IFlP believed that the PLO was insufficiently Islamic and jihadist.
The IFLP claimed their first attack in 1986 with the suicide bombing of Israelis in Jerusalem in which they killed and wounded sixty-six Jews. Later that year, IFLP terrorists in Beirut held three Americans hostage in an attempt to force the U.S. to support the emerging Intifada against Jews in Israel.
The Islamic Front for the Liberation of Palestine has been inactive since 1991 when the First Islamic Intifada against Israel ended. Their members merged into groups with similar ideologies such as Hamas.
- May 5, 1990: The Islamic Struggle Front firebombed the Amman, Jordan offices of the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee. I doubt it brought any of them to their senses.

- May 20, 1990: A lone Israeli gunman acting on his own initiative killed eight people in Rishon Le Ziyyon, a community south of Tel Aviv. Nine others were injured.

- May 28, 1990: A bomb hidden in a food vendor's cart exploded in Jerusalem, killing one person and wounding 12 others. Both Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine and Abu Musa's Fatah Uprising claimed credit for the murder of an innocent civilian.
- May 30, 1990: Twelve heavily armed members of Abu Abas' Palestinian Liberation Front disembarked from a Libyan warship and set out in six speedboats. They attempted to land on Israeli beaches, but were apprehended. They intended to attack tourists in the area, shooting them with machineguns.

- September 24, 1990: Saddam Hussein, one of eleven OPEC potentates, said that if America responded to his invasion of Kuwait he would destroy the fiefdom's oil fields. As usual, the slime-bag told the truth.
- September 27, 1990: The Islamic Struggle of Djibouti Youth, claimed credit for a grenade attack against a cafe frequented by French military personnel and their families. A child was killed and 15 others were injured. The leader of the group, Awaleh Ghelleh Assoweh, and his associate, Muhammad Hassan Farah, were arrested in Ethiopia in July 1992 for their role in this murderous terrorist act.
- October 1, 1990: Saddam Hussein said he was willing to negotiate the occupation of Kuwait in an international tribunal.
What most Americans do not know was that Iraq's invasion of Kuwait was in their interests. Iraq was the only secular government in the region and Kuwait was a fundamentalist Islamic regime. Iraq was a minimal sponsor of terrorism and Kuwait was a significant contributor. Further, both nations were dictatorial so there were no people to be liberated.
What's more, by rescuing the Kuwaiti warlords America angered bin Laden, precipitating the 9/11 attack. Fresh off his glorious victory against the Soviet Union in the Great Jihad, Osama bin Laden lobbied the Sauds for the right to push the infidel Hussein back in his hole. George Bush lobbied for this right as well, out bidding al-Qaeda and inflaming Islamic rage.
Had America not fought Operation Desert Storm, the September 11, 2001 suicide bombings would not have occurred.
- October 3, 1990: A hand grenade thrown at an Israeli in East Jerusalem. Seven people were injured in the blast. The Islamic Jihad in Palestine took credit.
- October 3, 1990: AP, the Islamic owned news agency, reported that the U.S. in its preparation for war in Iraq was importing nine million barrels of crude a week, causing the price of OPEC oil to soar. A week later, AP reported that crude inventories in the U.S. were at record lows. The same scenario would play out in the son's reenactment of his father's failure.
- October 8, 1990: A bomb exploded near Jerusalem's Wailing Wall foundation of the Temple Mount. A policeman was injured in the blast. A Muslim standing above the crowd of praying Jews on the Jewish Temple Mount had tossed the bomb.
- October 8, 1990: Eighteen Arab Muslims died during clashes with police at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Muslims, who had forbidden Jews and Christians from visiting one of the world's most important historical and religious sites, started the melee. They said that they were afraid that Jewish extremists from the Temple Mount faithful were planning to attack the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock shrine. While these were called "Islam's third holiest sites" their foundation was based upon a myth so stupid, it's a wonder there are any Muslims.
Muhammad hallucinated that he flew from Mecca to Jerusalem on a winged ass after the Satanic Verses so that he could meet Moses and Abraham in the non-existent Temple and then fly off to heaven - a place unreachable from Mecca. According to his account, Muhammad passed hell en route and said that it was filled with women who were hung from their breasts. In heaven, his conversation with Allah never got beyond how many times god wanted to be mooned each day. Allah asked for fifty prostrations but Muhammad negotiated him down to five.
The account of the Night's Journey is worth reading because it provided a window into Muhammad's ignorant and immoral nature and it sheds light on his gross anti-Semitism. You will find it in the "Delusions of Grandeur" chapter of Prophet of Doom.
- October 11, 1990: OPEC member and Libyan warlord, Cornel Moamar Qadhafi said that Israel must be eliminated. His views were shared by all fellow OPECers.
- October 12, 1990: A leading Egyptian politician was assassinated in Cairo. The Abu Nidal Group, acting with Egyptian Islamic fundamentalists committed the crime.
- October 13, 1990: An Israeli cosmetic firm was bombed in Padua, Italy by Middle Eastern Muslims.
- October 15, 1990: After having murdered 200,000 East Timor Roman Catholics using American weapons, the Islamic Indonesian Army reenergized its assault on Christian resistance. In the October 1990 offensive, the Indonesian Army attempted to surround and capture Shanana, the resistance leader. Whereas the previous fire bombings were concentrated on the eastern part of the country, the new offensive was centered on the districts of Ainaro and Same, southeast of Dili. As Muslims escalated their assault on Christians during thi campaign, troop reinforcements consisting of marines, aircraft, helicopters and Muslim terrorist groups, were brought from the north and the south. In addition to the detention in Dili, many students were forced into hiding. Also, there were waves of new arrests throughout the region, including civil servants and teachers suspected of being in contact with the resistance. Villagers in Suro and Suru Kraik were rounded up and tortured for celebrating the 15th anniversary of their brave fight for freedom - one that America was not just ignoring, but fighting against.
At the very time when the western powers launched all-out war against Kuwait's invader, the Indonesian Army was stepping up the war to crush the Christian resistance in East Timor. Think about that for a moment. Kuwait was an Islamic dictatorship. It was not free before or after the invasion, and yet America invested unimaginable resources returning the oil-drenched fiefdom to the immoral and dictatorial fundamentalist Muslim thugs who had a despicable history of oppressed their own people. And yet when the Roman Catholics of East Timor declared their independence, America armed the Islamic oppressor and gave the dictatorial regime the green light to commit genocide. Islamic Kuwait, which had no hope of ever being free, was aided to the extreme by the American military while Christian East Timor was punished with American weapons. If you don't recognize that American foreign policy is hypocritical at its core and that it revolves around acquiring oil, rather than advancing democracy, you are lost beyond hope.
In its January 1991 report on East Timor, Amnesty International stated: "We remain concerned about a continuing pattern of serious violations of human rights, of persistent reports of extrajudicial executions, of the systematic use of torture against political detainees by members of the security forces, of hundreds of unresolved cases of disappearances, and of the continuing imprisonment of many supporters of Fretilin sentenced in trials which Amnesty International believes were not fair. Amnesty International is increasingly concerned about a pattern of detention, ill-treatment, and torture of political opponents of Indonesian rule in East Timor. This report was difficult to compile because, knowing they had something to hide, the Islamic regime in Indonesia refused to allow Amnesty International or Asia Watch to visit the Island. (For next update on East Timor see November 12, 1991.).
- October 18, 1990: A bomb was detonated in the Burmese Embassy in Bangkok. Burmese Islamic students were suspected.
- October 21, 1990: An Arab Muslim stabbed three Israelis to death and wounded another in Jerusalem. The Islamic Jihad and Force 17 both claimed credit which meant that they were both sufficiently immoral to consider murderer good and one or both were lying.
- October 23, 1990: Iranian agents were responsible for assassinating an Iranian opposition leader Cyrus Elahi in Paris. The victim had been a senior member of the Shah's government and was a member of the monarchist Flag Freedom Organization of Iran.

- October 30, 1990: The Saud family met with Osama bin Laden but rejected his offer to fight Saddam Hussein using his jihadist mujahideen who were fresh off their victory against the Soviet Union. At the same time, the Sauds accepted George Bush's proposal to use American troops.
This meeting confirmed that al-Qaeda and Iraq were enemies, not allies. (As a fundamentalist Salafi Muslim, OBL considered Hussein's government secular, and thus infidel.) Iraq, therefore, had nothing to do with 9/11. Further, the Sauds favoring George Bush over bin Laden, initiated bin Laden's hatred of the United States and led directly to 9/11.
- November 5, 1990: Rabbi Meir Kahane, the founder of the Jewish Defense League, was assassinated in New York City by an Egyptian Muslim who had become an American citizen. The murderer attended the same New Jersey mosque as the blind Quranic scholar Sheikh Rahman and international terrorist Ramzi Yousef, both of whom were involved in the first World Trade Center bombing.

- November 9, 1990: Two Burmese Muslims carried bombs aboard a Thai Airways plane. They used them to hijack the airliner shortly after it had taken off from Bangkok. The flight was diverted to Calcutta, India. The hijackers claimed that they wanted to draw world attention to the plight of their movement in Burma.
- November 11, 1990: In Japan, the Marxist Chukakuha (Middle Core Faction) claimed credit for bombing the residence of the U.S. Consul General in Kobe. Working for Muslims, they said they did it to protest U.S. aggression in the Persian Gulf.
- November 17, 1990: A baseball bat filled with 10 ounces of explosives blew up during a U.S. Chamber of Commerce-sponsored charity game in Chile. These revolting antics killed a Canadian businessman and wounded three other players, including a U.S. Embassy employee. An anonymous caller claimed credit for the explosive bat on behalf of the PLO - the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
- November 20, 1990: Posturing for world opinion on the cusp of the American invasion, Saddam Hussein announced that German hostages held in Iraq would be freed.
- November 20, 1990: With its second largest trading partner threatened, Russia was reluctant to support the use of force against Iraq - a sentiment that would play out again as Putin, a KGB Communist, would later thwart international efforts to keep Islamic Iran from developing a nuclear bomb.
- November 21, 1990: Two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the Turkish Consulate in Paris.
- November 24, 1990: A boat carrying members of Ahmad Jibril's PFLP-GC from Egypt was intercepted by an Israeli patrol. The terrorists put up a fight but were all killed.
- November 25, 1990: A Swedish nurse was stabbed in Israel by a Palestinian Muslim who said that he objected to foreign involvement in the Iraq-Kuwait crisis.
- November 25, 1990: A female suicide bomber of the Syrian Nationalist Party approached Israelis in southern Lebanon and blew herself up. Two soldiers and a civilian were wounded in the attack.
- November 25, 1990: In Morocco, an Iraqi diplomat was stabbed to death at a beach resort. The victim had ignored threats demanding that he return home after the invasion of Kuwait.
- November 25, 1990: Four people were killed and 26 others were wounded in Israel when an Egyptian Muslim crossed into Israeli territory and opened fire on civilian vehicles. The jihadist managed to escape back across the border into Egypt. Several hours after the attack, the Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.
- November 26, 1990: Rather than negotiating a withdrawal from Kuwait, George Bush gave Saddam Hussein an ultimatum: "Leave Kuwait by January 1 or the U.S. will use force to return Kuwait to the emirs." Pretending to be a diplomat, on the 30th, the U.S. president offered to send Secretary of State James Baker to Baghdad to meet with Hussein. I said "pretend" because American troops and weapons were already en route.
- December 1, 1990: A grenade was thrown from a car into a busy Tel Aviv intersection.
- December 2, 1990: Palestinian Muslims attacked a bus in Tel Aviv leaving one person dead and three wounded. Anti-terrorist police killed one of the three jihadists and injured the other two as they were retreating.
- December 3, 1990: A group calling itself the "Gracchus Babeuf Organization" claimed responsibility for bombing the European University of America in Paris, France. Several Kuwaiti exiles were staying there at the time. The Marxist group admitted that they were serving Islamic interests when they said that the attack was to protest the deployment of U.S. troops in the Gulf.
The leftist movement derived their name from 18th century French revolutionary Francois Noel Babeuf, who was known as Gracchus. Described by many as the first terrorist, Babeuf declared in 1792 that "all means are legitimate in the fight against tyrants." He was echoing the sentiments of Adam Wieshaupt (the founder of socialist secular humanism) who had written in 1776 that "the ends justify the means." Wieshaupt in turn based his writings on Muhammad's system: Islam.
- December 4, 1990: Iraq, which like Kuwait was an OPEC member, said that it would withdraw from captured territory if it could retain the contested Rumailah field and keep the disputed Bubiyan and Werbah islands. Then, Saddam Hussein, playing to Muslim sympathies, demanded that Palestinian issue be resolved. George Bush ignored him because, like his son, dad wanted to be a "wartime president.".
- December 5, 1990: Iraq agreed to meet with Secretary Baker to resolve the crisis caused by his invasion. But on the 13th, rather than accepting Saddam Hussein's offer of dialog, Baker mocked Iraq's seriousness regarding Middle East peace.
- December 18, 1990: Fearing a negotiated settlement between OPEC dictators would spoil his plans, George Bush reiterated his "no concessions" stance against Iraq. The U.S. President clearly wanted to be seen as the liberator of the Kuwaiti and Saudi Islamic regimes.
The simple, yet perverse truth is: to become a wartime president and to be seen as the liberator of the Islamic world, George Bush out promised al-Qaeda's mujahideen, fresh off of their victory over the Soviet Union, for the right to defend the Sauds and the Emirs. Rebuked by his Muslim brothers, Osama bin Laden, took revenge against his rival by aiding and abetting the 9-11 suicide bombings.
- December 19, 1990: The director of the Iranian Cultural Center was assassinated in front of a hotel in Lahore, Pakistan by Sunni fundamentalists.
