From WND, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Anti-terror experts say highly motivated jihadists around the world are making plans for terrorist attacks during the Christmas season, report Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence weekly newsletter published by WND.
Radical militants operating in the West are known to have conducted clandestine meetings debating their preferred actions and aggression opportunities when hundreds of millions of Christians celebrate Christmas, the sources say.
A pre-Christmas internal review conducted by Israel’s General Security Service, known as Shabak, based on a variety of terror activity scenarios, focused on terrorist dangers during the two weeks before and after Christmas 2004 and the New Year.
Conclusions based on a thorough analysis of direct intelligence from other sources show most countries are at the last stages of security preparations and implementation of preventive measures against terror attacks on tourism, transportation hubs and symbolic religious, national and international targets. In the majority of countries with a relatively small Christian population, security agencies have raised the level of preparedness to protect these communities including a security network around churches on Christmas.
