Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri: “It is absolutely out of the question that the US will defeat the spirit of Jihad in the Islamic nation – the same spirit that defeated the US in the battlefield, as well as in the war of ideas. In the battlefield, the US was defeated and withdrew from Iraq, under the pressure of the strikes of the mujahideen … These are the mujahideen upon whom Allah has bestowed the honor of shattering America’s plan to take over the Middle East… In Afghanistan, the US has begun its withdrawal, leaving its collaborators to the fate of their predecessors in Vietnam and Iran. In the Arab countries, the US-proxy regimes have fallen one after the other, and the US is out of breath, trying to contain the volcano of Arab rage. It is encouraging that these regimes have begun to collapse prior to the American withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq, whereas the Soviet-backed regimes of the Warsaw Pact started to collapse only after the Russian withdrawal from Afghanistan. This indicates that the US is in a state of extreme weakness, which may even exceed that of the USSR in its final days. Hence, the change to come will be even greater …
The strength of Al-Qaeda does not lie in its numbers or in its equipment, which cannot be compared to those of the Western empire of evil. The strength of Al-Qaeda lies in its message to the Islamic nation and to the oppressed in this world. The message is: Rise against the global order of injustice, against international arrogance, and against worldwide theft. Rise against the polytheist [Christian] regime, which worships materialism, power, interests, and pleasure. Rise against the international Satanic legitimacy, which supports the oppressor rather than the oppressed, the slayer rather than the slain, and the thief rather than his victim.” Full Report.

Iran has significantly stepped up its output of low-enriched uranium and total production in the last five years would be enough for at least five nuclear weapons if refined much further, a U.S. security institute said. The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), a think-tank which tracks Iran’s nuclear programme closely, based the analysis on data in the latest report by the UN International Atomic Energy Agency which was issued on Friday. ISIS analysis, based on IAEA report, finds Iran has significantly stepped up output of low-enriched uranium in the last five years; Iran reportedly downplays IAEA report. Full Report →

A stream of highly charged particles from the sun is headed straight toward Earth, threatening to plunge cities around the world into darkness and bring the global economy screeching to a halt.
This isn’t the premise of the latest doomsday thriller. Massive solar storms have happened before — and another one is likely to occur soon, according to Mike Hapgood, a space weather scientist at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford, England. Continue Reading →
