Brussels Attack: The True Implications of ISIS Links

brussles_bombinBy Tony Cartalucci

Just days after arresting French-born Belgium national and terror suspect Salah Abdeslam in Brussels, a coordinated terror attack unfolded in the very same city, killing at least 28, and injuring many more.

NBC News has already announced that European officials are linking the attack to ISIS, though it is unclear whether or not Abdeslam’s network – which carried out the November 2015 Paris terror attacks – was directly involved.

Abdeslam’s “Terror Ring”

Police in Brussels were still hunting for several other alleged accomplices of Abdeslam, including Najim Laachraoui and Mohamed Abrini.

Laachraoui and Abrini, like virtually every other suspect involved in a string of terrorist attacks across North America, Europe, and Australia, were well known to Western security agencies, having both been documented as having traveled to Syria to fight against Damascus under ISIS, with Abrini having been arrested and jailed several times in the past, and Laachraoui already having a 2014 international arrest warrant issued for him in connection to a trial involving recruiting Europeans to fight for ISIS.

The International Business Times would report in their article, “Manhunt for last Isis Paris attacks fugitives: Who are Najim Laachraoui and Mohamed Abrini?,” that:

Mohamed Abrini, 31, is among Europe’s most wanted fugitives since he was filmed with Abdeslam at a petrol station on a highway to Paris on 11 November aboard a Renault Clio that was used in the attacks two days later. Described as “armed and dangerous” in a European arrested warrant the Belgian-Moroccan is believed to have travelled to Syria after serving short stints in jail for petty crime and robberies.

The Independent would report in an article titled, “Najim Laachraoui: Belgian police launch manhunt for suspect who could have made suicide belts for Paris attacks,” that:

Laachraoui is thought to have studied electro-mechanical engineering at a Catholic high school in Schaerbeek, the Institut de la Sainte-Famille d’helmet, graduating in 2012. He was already known to be in Syria in 2013, and was the subject of an international arrest warrant in 2014.

And because Laachraoui’s DNA is alleged to have been found at several scenes linked to the terror network, it appears that he too may have been in custody at least long enough to provide a DNA sample as a reference to now match him to evidence collected in the aftermath of the 2015 Paris attacks.

And even regarding Abdeslam himself, the BBC would report in their article, “Paris attacks: Who were the attackers?,” that:

Some reports have said he spent time in prison for robbery where he met suspected ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud. He had earlier been sacked as a technician on the Brussels tram system, for missing work. Dutch police said they had detained Salah Abdeslam briefly in February, fining him €70 (£49) for possession of cannabis.

In other words, all of the suspects have been under the nose, on the radar, and in the prisons of Western security agencies on and off for years, yet were still able to carry out at least one high-profile terrorist attack – possibly two, and with the vast majority of the suspects involved having traveled to Syria to fight alongside ISIS before inexplicably being allowed to re-enter Europe and rejoin society without consequence – as if inviting them to take their extremism to the next level.

Brussels Bombing Already Being Linked to ISIS

The Guardian’s “Brussels attack: were they revenge for Abdeslam’s arrest?,” attempted to link the bombings in Brussels to the arrest of Abdeslam and the Paris attack terror network. The op-ed acknowledges that these terrorist attacks are being carried out by locals – Europeans – using local resources.

Should the Brussels attack be linked to this same terror network, it will greatly complicate efforts by some to leverage this tragedy to further their agendas against refugees and even to change the dynamics of the war in Syria itself.

Europeans are clearly already being radicalized and then leaving to Syria to fight alongside ISIS and then returning – rather than a torrent of foreigners streaming in from abroad and carrying out violence against European targets.

Should the Brussels attack turn out to be the work of this ISIS-linked terror group, considering the familiarity European security agencies had with all the suspects long before even the 2015 Paris attacks, indicates criminal negligence at best, and complicity at worst.

But even if the attacks are the work of foreign ISIS militants, one should consider the West’s admitted role in the creation and perpetuation of ISIS in the first place.

The West Created ISIS as a Weapon of Geopolitical Coercion

ISIS’ own alleged agenda of transforming the world into a “caliphate” is cartoonishly absurd. In reality, it is clear that ISIS shows up and exercises force in regions of the world the US and its allies cannot intervene in directly. This includes North Africa, the Middle East, and even as far as Asia.

This Book Could Save Your Life (Ad)

Far from a “conspiracy theory,” it would be the US’ own Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) that would admit as much in a leaked 2012 report (.pdf) which stated:

If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).

To clarify just who these “supporting powers” were that sought the creation of a “Salafist” (Islamic) principality” (State), the DIA report explains:

The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.

Between this admission, and an earlier exposé in 2007 by veteran journalist Seymour Hersh in his New Yorker piece titled, “The Redirection” where US and Saudi plans to use Al Qaeda to wage proxy war on Syria and Iran were revealed, it is clear that both Al Qaeda and ISIS are being used by the West to wage war on Damascus, Baghdad, Tehran, and even Moscow.

ISIS supply lines clearly, even admittedly run from NATO territory in Turkey where the US and its regional allies have categorically failed to interdict them and even appear to be aiding and abetting the flow of men and materiel into ISIS-held territory in Syria and Iraq. These supply lines are what has allowed pressure to be continuously placed upon Damascus and its allies over the past 5 years in ways nonexistent “moderate rebels” couldn’t.

In Indonesia, as Jakarta clearly began re-balancing toward Beijing, ISIS carried out its first deadly attack on the Southeast Asian nation. Thailand’s similar re-balancing also prompted threats from the US that an “ISIS attack” was imminent.

In Europe, where the flames of a “clash of civilizations” are being furiously and intentionally fanned, ISIS serves as a constant implement to empower extremists on both sides, while drowning out the voices of unity, moderation, and peace in the middle. It allows for a growing police state and xenophobic tendencies to flourish at home, while justifying further war abroad.

While some Western newspapers are already trying to frame the Belgium attack as “incompetence” by European security agencies, there must be a better explanation as to why this “war with ISIS” continues to drag on, when the source of ISIS’ fighting capacity appears to be within rather than beyond the West – and aiding rather than opposing Western special interests.

    The Beginning of the Season of Blood Ritual Sacrifice Begins Again Right on Cue

    • John Cook

      Is this like Purim, the Tribes ‘season’ of bloody ‘revenge’? For examples: during the first Iraqi war they organized the incredible butchery of 150,000 of the retreating Iraqi troops on the ‘highway of death’ on the exact date of Purim, then they organized the start of the second Iraqi war exactly on Purim and achieved the death of many more.
      BTW Purim ‘celebrates’ the Tribes success in using a secret Tribe member to subvert the king (using sexual favors) to overcome a plan to out their infiltration of that kings gov by their agents. Ask if you want it explained in more detail just ask me – it’s a great story – it’s in their ‘Bible’, the only chapter that doesn’t even mention God.

      • Bee

        Just so you know the true tribes, are a moral people, now that does not say they are not a sleep like a lot of the world, but they know right from wrong and most will not turn from that unless they are drugged or excepted the evil ways.

        • John Cook

          No, you aren’t taking into account their current culture. I mention ‘current’ because I think it’s being ruthlessly perverted from even its historically (in my opinion) miserable state. Most current western Tribe members have been driven effectively crazy by lies, deliberately planed, well spread and purposeful.
          They have marketed the HoloHoax into a major religion celebrating suffering, victim-hood and revenge (against white people)
          They have been taught that white people just can’t help themselves – their innate ‘anti-sematism’ might just break through at any time and they’ve all got it just under the surface – can you imagine how racist that child becomes? And interpreting any grief that comes your way from people as ‘anti-semitism’ rather than your own actions…
          The tribal rulers have got the ‘Lessor Brethren” into an almost hysterical state of “Victimhood” and pre traumatic stress disorder. And on the other hand their egos have been boosted passed the moon by their remorselessly positive image in the media, particularly as far as intelligence goes.
          I suspect they are being prepared for their upcoming roles as the “Master Race’ in a play written by mister Rothschild. They sure do put out that vibe,

  • Verbal Bomb Chucker

    Lesson to be learned……..DO NOT ALLOW MUSLIMS INTO YOUR COUNTRY.

    • dale ruff

      Lesson to be learned: do not have nations led by Christians fund and arm al Quada, ISIS, etc.

      Lesson 2: do not be fooled by Islamaphobia, which only creates the pretext for terrorism.

      • Pretty sure “Verbal Bomb Chucker” is a paid government troll to sway sentiment.

        • blue579

          Word to the wise, the person you directed your comment to (Dale) is the professional level troll encountered most often on this website – always ready to call us right wing extremists and conspiracy nuts when we discuss geoengineering, AGW skepticism, vaccinations, Agenda 21 and generally the UN’s role in creating a global police state, etc. How can a person study political science at Harvard and Berkeley and pretend not to grasp Antony Sutton, Carroll Quigley, and the Dialectic?

          • John Cook

            Thank you Blue, I’d just ‘followed’ him cos I was suspicious and wanted to keep an eye on him, your opinion is valued, even though I don’t always agree.

          • blue579

            You’re very welcome, John. Let’s just say my position is we should all support some kind of open source information system and the truth will make itself apparent. Our counterbalance to disinfo has been slipping away – people forget too easily and there’s often a lack of perspective.

          • John Cook

            I think teaching critical thinking and logic in schools would (eventually) solve most of our problems. That’s why it will never happen in this system.

          • blue579

            True, instead we’re devolving. It’s too easy to numb out.

          • John Cook

            Think Ideocracy. Ps I suspect that the Tribe was all over that movie – it seems to be how they see the Goyim now – with them waking up from the past and finding them selves the smartest people alive.
            Their supposed ‘brilliance’ is a Large part of their excuse/justification for their supremacist plots.

          • Brett

            Dale sure is earning his keep!

      • John Cook

        But DO learn about the Tribes supremacism and integrate it into world events…

    • William Burke

      And elect a president who will keep them out.

    • blue579

      ANY immigrant who doesn’t want to live in a free society shouldn’t immigrate to the west regardless of religion or ethnicity. The open borders crowd always say they come for “a better life” and then TPTB destroy national identity and cultural cohesion. The ones I wish were kicked out long ago are the banksters – give the Rockefellers and Rothschilds a one way ticket to Mars. The Islamic countries are being radically transformed into the new Big Brother Borg system as well, pawns in the long game.

      • Bee

        I agree..

  • Mick McNulty

    If like me you believe the Paris shootings were a false flag then this guy didn’t do it. He’s a patsy and these bombings in Brussels are Operation Gladio revisited to reinforce the lie; how could his accomplices pull off two coordinated attacks in just a few days? I don’t believe ANY of it. Mossad is behind it all.

    • blue579

      Mossad, CIA, ISI, MI5/MI6, French, German, Belgian, Saudi, Jordanian intelligence, etc. They all work closely together.

  • locutus_of_klingons

    I smell the stench of a false flag here. nothing to see. move on

    When in Heaven’s name will the people of Europe put two and two together and get four? Will it ever happen? NATO under the direction and control of the degenerate American empire is now reaping what it has sown and will continue to do so for many years to come. I don’t understand why European leaders were so foolish as to follow American orders to destroy The Middle East and not consider that revenge attacks might occur. European countries are not islands, they are all connected. They were complicit in the creation of ISIS either directly or indirectly, either as a planned policy or through gross incompetence. Now they must contend with their huge mistake. Interesting how Europe is paying through death and destruction for the imperial sins of the US!

    • John Cook

      It will all become clear when you finally integrate the fact the Tribe runs the US gov, especially its foreign policy, and their media (including the incredibly corrupting Hollywood) and essentially directs the almost all of the worlds events to the end of their supremacism.

      • Bee

        You sir need to clarify what Tribe you are talking about! There is more issues then you are speaking in the bible..

        • John Cook

          I’ll clarify it again because my other reply to you is being censored and may not ever appear. I’m talking about the people who are brought up according to the beliefs expressed in the Torah but especially the Talmud. I know they are mostly not directly trained in these two books but they are all, even the atheists among them, steeped in a Talmudic culture that trains them to be pathological. They believe in their ‘right’ to unlimited revenge even for invented injuries, they believe in their innate superiority and destiny to rule us Goyim, they believe we are just cattle and have no souls, they think that it is morally ok, even good, to lie and cheat us, they think they can trick their G_D (for instance on the day of atonement they actually atone in Advance, making all their Vows and Promises for the coming year null BEFORE they make them), they invented and are masters at ‘lawyer mentality’ that is finding ‘loop holes’ in reality….
          Sick of this, I’ve said enough. Even though you are probably just another Tribe member doing your hasbara, trying to put a good spin on the Tribe you really know what I am talking about – you just can’t admit it.

          • Bee

            I know that 1/3 rd of YHVH’s children fell of all the tribes count that in people today that are living on the earth. Yes I know about Jere 24. and Eze 13. You sir have an opportunity to stop attacking and plant seeds of truth to even one lost soul, better then none.

          • John Cook

            I find it hard to follow what you are saying since I wasn’t raised in the bible drivel and hence don’t accept it – please forgive me but it’s all bullshit nonsense to me. More – Evil nonsense – have you ever read the old testament as if it was relaying Real Contemporary Events? Really happening in some country not too far away? Like the endless murder of men, women and children, ‘god’ getting mad because some tribal leader failed to kill everyone but kept the virgin girls to sell as slaves? The unspeakable evil of your ‘good book’ is mind boggling to one not indoctrinated to it. I really feel for the innocent goat herders subjected to those psychopathic ‘Israelites’. The Tribe have truly been a plague on humanity from the very beginning.
            Regarding your last sentence, it attempts to bundle two separate things together as if they naturally follow – ‘Stop attacking’ and ‘plant seeds of truth’ plus a bit of blather suggesting/implying that it’s a religious solution that is required.
            I need to ‘attack’ because the lie is so well installed that people defend it even though it is killing them – there is no evil intent in any ‘attack’ I carry out.
            Planting seeds of truth is exactly what I am doing – endlessly pointing out the evils that the Tribe does and how pathological they are and the danger their intended rule represents.

          • Bee

            Now I’m being censored. And you have not received my message to you.. Stop thinking everybody is apart of the same system.

          • John Cook

            It seems random, sometimes they come back (two days later in one case) sometimes never, like this one of yours apparently. I’ve lost posts that I spent hours on. Now I make a copy and keep it so I don’t feel so bad about all that thinking and typing being wasted.

          • Bee

            Oh and by the way, I believe in Reality not religion. Simple as that. Truth is reality. You know nothing about me but yet you make statements as if you have figured me out! When you know the truth then and only then will you know who your enemy is.. There is so much more to the system then what you are making of it and you can’t stand with bits and pieces attacking people with just the basic information you have..

          • John Cook

            If you’re reality based then why do you so often speak in religious terms – I make what I think are reasonable assumptions and I’m trying to learn to be suspicious and not take things at face value as is my wont. For instance I’m still a bit suspicious you are a Tribe member doing Hasbara because you still haven’t even denied it.

          • Bee

            I am a Scottish American with 11 generation in this country. I was raised a Lutheran , and then back in 2007 I was called to learn the truth. I now know where I stand and we must be careful not to look at everybody as the enemy. Most people are asleep and they will wake up to either righteousness or condemnation.. Do what is right and all will be well with you..

          • John Cook

            Thank you for your blessing. I apologise for my suspitions – I’d already decided that you were just defending the Tribe because I needed countering so as to achieve a balance.
            I cannot fault that – in fact it is exactly the sort of thing I think (especially) women should do.

          • Bee

            I know who you are talking about, and YHVH will cleanse the earth when it is time. GOOD will always prevail over evil. I know who I am and I will always stand for the truth, anyone and everyone has been called into the covenant since the death of Christ, they have a choice to make and YHVH will give them that time to make the choice. There is a harvest coming and people will be held accountable. Until then I will plant seeds for them to repent and come into the covenant and only through YASHUA can they be saved..

          • John Cook

            So now, if my attempt to see through your Biblical fog achieved any clarity, I see you are apparently claiming to be a ‘Christian’ – bullshit. A true follower of Christ would reject the ‘Old Testament’, and all the evil it contains AND would reject the evil of the “Synagog of Satan” that Jesus condemned, they killed him yet you defend them. You’re no true Christian – in fact I think you are actually a Tribe member who is just lying as you are permitted to do to us Goyim in your ‘morality’.

    • Bee

      Remember it takes a lot of rulers from many nations to agree to set a Religious one world ruler for the world to bow to for Sovereignty, People need to know “Who is your KING? You either look to heaven or earth..

  • blue579

    Not “western special interests” – rather the Global Cabal. Did anyone notice this attack took place in an airport? Could this have anything to do with the drive to monitor our travel and eventually create check points and mandate the use of biometric RFID SMART CARDS – exactly like the Octopus Smart Card pioneered in Technocratic paradise Singapore, the model of which is in the process of being adopted in IRAN’S self described SMART CITY Tehran. It’s a global cluster—-, and we are to rely on the limited hangouts and spin coming from Seymour Hersh who recently tried to re-spin the Bin Laden death hoax story? Or General Wesley Clark, globalist boot licker, friend of the Clintons, and recent advocate of putting thought criminal Americans who oppose the global war on terror tactics into INTERNMENT CAMPS? What is happening is much much bigger than nation state led imperialism or corporatism, it’s global enslavement.

    Bottom line is this new attack has all the earmarks of an operation to manufacture consent on a dazed and gullible public to restrict travel. The smart bet is it’s also another goal of the engineered refugee crises that had led to increased border control monitoring for all Europeans. How about the story last year of a pilot EU program to constantly monitor foreign travelers in real time with biometric (and RFID?) technology – small scale and “voluntary” at first, of course. Smart cards are coming to my metropolis and the automobile transponders to use public HOV lanes are now required.

    • Hmmm good one, never thought of that before.

    • John Cook

      Seymour Hersh and Wesley Clark (nee Cohen) are both Tribe members in good standing, everything they say is a psy-op. All this apparent chaos becomes much clearer and simpler seen in the context of the Tribes supremacist agenda, Destroy European culture (their main opponent/competor), keep the middle east in violent chaos to vitiate their local opponents and introduce total surveillance/control of particularly western countries.

      • blue579

        Thanks, I completely agree. I point out Clark because his very public remark is often cited in the alt media as the primary evidence of the seven nation “plan” – despite the fact the Iran was already well on its way towards adopting the NWO paradigm when that comment was made and, less obviously, Syrian elites too. The surveillance model is most evolved in China on the large scale, right? I’m stumbling across information that Singapore is the idealized model having also watched a 2002 televised program on youtube suggested by “Rusticus” who penned a couple of great articles published on Activist Post. Recently, on there was an article out of Melbourne University in which the author strongly recommended Australia switch over to Singapore’s system of authoritarian technocratic governance to avoid becoming “the poor white trash of Asia” – what a jack—. Western academics are swilling the Kool-Aid!

      • Bee

        Its even more then that ! How many are ready and willing to bow to the pope to receive their sovereignty ?

        • Brett

          Thats a very valid point…

  • M B

    When an article quote something from MSM like the BBC, NYT CNN FOX, my concentration drops to zero.

  • John Cook

    Sorry bout the delay, I was never notified of your message and just found it now – oh course I know these things, i’m not ignorant, I just simplify things to show the important essentials. You might think of it as ‘simplistic’ – I would say it is simplistic like F=Ma or Alexander cutting through the Gordian knot.

Thank you for sharing.
