Islamic Terrorism Timeline
- January 3, 1988: An Iraqi businessman living in exile in London, was poisoned with thallium - a heavy-metal element similar to arsenic. Thallium was often used by Iraqi agents and by Islamic terrorists. The victim died within 15 days.
- January 4, 1988: A diplomat working for the West German Embassy was murdered in Paris. An envelope found on his body was signed by the National Front for the Liberation of Kurdistan. The leaflet inside, which was written in French, called for the repayment of money which was seized during the July 1987 searches of Kurdish institutions in Cologne.
- January 10, 1988: A bomb was detonated outside the U.S. Consulate in Alexandria, Egypt. The National Front for the Liberation of Egypt claimed responsibility.
- January , 1988: A grenade was tossed into the building housing the Libyan, French, Sudanese, and West German embassies in Kampala, Uganda. A Libyan diplomat was killed and four others were wounded. The Uganda Federal Army claimed responsibility, stating that the Libyan Embassy served as a terrorist base for Abu Nidal.
- January 11, 1988: An Australian United Nations observer was killed and his Canadian aide was injured when a bomb exploded under the jeep they were riding in during a patrol in southern Lebanon.
- January 17, 1988: In the Sudan, Mahdi Al Hakim, a leading Iraqi Shiite Muslim leader opposed to the secular Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq, was assassinated in the lobby of the Khartoum Hilton. His brother was chairman (having since been assassinated in Iraq in 2003) of the Iranian Shiite-backed Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, which at the time was headquartered in Tehran.
Today, thanks to American bumbling, the Iranian Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq is the government of Iraq. The secular was replaced by the sectarian. The consequence to America and the world will be unimaginably devastating - ultimately claiming one out of every two people on earth.
- January 21, 1988: Members of the PLO's Fatah attempted to infiltrate Israeli south of Kibbutz Manara, on the Lebanese border. Three terrorists were killed and one Israeli soldier was seriously wounded.
- January 22, 1988: Pakistanis who had traveled to the Afghan city of Jalabad for the funeral of the Pathan leader, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, were devastated by an IED attack which killed eight people and wounded 20 others. The first bomb exploded in one of the buses carrying the Pakistani mourners. Other bombs were detonated near the funeral site. The vice president of India was among several international leaders attending the funeral.
- January 23, 1988: A bomb exploded in a weapon's bazaar in Quella, Pakistan, killing two, and injuring eight others. Quella served as a center for Afghan mujahideen fighting the Soviets in the Great Jihad.
- January 24, 1988: A bomb blasted a government bus in Pakistan, killing 10 and wounding 19 others.
- January 26, 1988: A bomb exploded in a bookstore in the Nile Hilton Hotel in Cairo.
- January 27, 1988: A West German citizen with Lebanese ancestry, was abducted when four carloads of jihadists kidnapped him as he stood talking to a friend on a street near his home in west Beirut. The Revolutionary Justice Organization claimed responsibility.
According to a senior Shiite official, the kidnapping of Ralph Schray was linked to the trial of Ali Abbas Hamadei in Germany. That jihadist was on trial for carrying concealed explosives aboard an airplane. Hamadei was also wanted by the U.S. for air piracy and murder in connection with the hijacking of a TWA passenger jet in 1985.
- January 31, 1988: Three Afghan refugees and two Pakistanis were killed when a bomb hidden inside a tomato crate exploded in Peshawar, Pakistan.
- February 1, 1988: AMAL's al-Sadr Brigades claimed credit for kidnapping a Libyan citizen in West Beirut.
The al-Sadr Brigades formed after the disappearance of Lebanese Shiite spiritual leader Imam Musa al-Sadr. Al-Sadr, along with two companions, vanished during a visit to Libya in August of 1978. Since the Shiite imam founded the AMAL terrorist club, the al-Sadr Brigades was nothing more than another name for the original gang.
AMAL served as the primary Shia jihadist group in Lebanon prior to the formation of Hizballah. While both organizations were funded by Iranian OPECers, and while the two groups operated simultaneously, Hizballah's more direct connection to Iran's mullahs and their crude, ultimately caused it to eclipse AMAL.
- February 2, 1988: A French diplomat was killed by two assassins at pointblank range in East Beirut.
- February 4, 1988: Al Fatah terrorists infiltrated the northern Israeli from Lebanon and killed two Israelis.
- February 4, 1988: A hand grenade was discovered in the toilet of a Lebanese airliner just before the plane departed Beirut for Cairo.
- February 5, 1988: U.N. Relief and Works Agency members Jan Stening of Sweden, and William Jorgensen of Norway, were kidnapped by PLO jihadists while traveling in a UNRWA car in southern Lebanon.
- February 9, 1988: The Ivory Coast's Chancellery in Lebanon was the target of a grenade attack.
- February 10, 1988: Two Swedish journalists were seized in West Beirut by Hizballah. They were released when it was discovered that they were not Germans. If they had been Germans, the government would have paid $1 million to obtain their release.
- February 11, 1988: In Pakistan, Sayyed Majruh, head of the Afghan Information Office in Peshawar, was assassinated.
- February 12, 1988: A bomb was found aboard a Middle East Airlines Boeing 707 in Lebanon. The aircraft had arrived from Rome and was scheduled to leave for Cyprus to pick up President Amin al-Jumayyil.
The bomb contained over two pounds of TNT. It was very sophisticated, and required considerable time to install in the radio compartment under the pilot's seat. It had been set to go off at an altitude of 30,000 feet when the plane would have been en route from Cyprus to North Yemen.
- February 13, 1988: In Cypress, three Palestinian officials were assassinated in a car bombing in Limassol. The victims were members of the PLO's military committee in Lebanon and also Fatah's Bureau overseeing the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
A group calling itself the Martyr Rasim al-Ghul Organization claimed to have carried out the murders. Just because they liked lying as much as they hated Jews, a PLO spokesman charged the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, with responsibility.
- February 14, 1988: In Cypress, a ferryboat which was scheduled to symbolically transport Palestinian refugees to Israel, was damaged by an explosion in Limassol. No one was injured by the blast.
The PLO accused the Mossad. KACH International claimed responsibility. And yet, Palestinians had been the only ones to use bombs to sink ships in Cypress.
The Kach Party was a Jewish nationalist group in Israel founded by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane. The rabbi was murdered in 1990 by associates of Rahman and Ramzi, the bind Islamic cleric and Pakistani jihadist responsible for the first bombing of the World Trade Center. In 1968, Rabbi Kahane founded the Jewish Defense League, an American organization dedicated to protecting Jews from anti-Semitism. In 1969, Kahane emigrated to Israel, and by 1971, he had established an international office for the JDL in Jerusalem. The Kach movement (Hebrew for thus/therefore) emerged from the international JDL.
The Kach Party sought to restore the Biblical land of Israel in accordance with Yahweh's Word. Kach supporters were willing to confront violence with violence - not unlike America's invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. In that the Israeli government was most always willing to accommodate Islamic terrorists and trade land for unkept promises of peace, Kach opposed Israeli pacifists.
Using the Kach Party as a political platform, in the late 1970s Rabbi Kahane ran twice for the Israeli Knesset - a difficult task considering the parliamentary nature of Israeli governance. In 1984, Kahane was elected to the Knesset. However, in 1988, Israeli law was amended to forbid anti-Islamic parties from participating elections, effectively barring Kach from the political scene.
Despite the assassination of Rabbi Kahane in 1990 by fundamentalist Muslims, the Kach movement, and its closely affiliated splinter group, Kahane Chai, remained active in Israel.
In a mix of good and bad, the Kach Party recognized that the Oslo Accords would be a disaster for Israel, which was good. However, following the signing of the Oslo Accords between Israel and the PLO in 1994, a Kach supporter killed 29 people in a mosque in Hebron, and that was bad. While Islam deserved to die, many of the individual Muslims who were killed didn't.
In February 2005 Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon accused Kach activists of threatening government officials who supported his plan of "disengagement" from Gaza. Once again, the Kach Party was right and the Israeli establishment was wrong. Giving up Gaza was an unmitigated disaster for Israel.
The United States designates Kach and its affiliate Kahane Chai as terrorist organization. This was done to appease the PLO and their OPEC supporters. The same corrupt government allowed Yasser Arafat to stay in the White House's Lincoln Bedroom and provided his Fatah party with a billion dollars.
- February 16, 1988: A dynamite bomb went off in front of the Israeli Embassy in Manila. The Moro Islamic Liberation Organization was responsible.
- February 17, 1988: In Ethiopia, the Marxist Muslim Tigray People's Liberation Front abducted six European aid workers in Asmara. The victims included three Irish nuns, two Belgian doctors, and a Dutch nurse.
- February 17, 1988: While serving with the United Nations Truce Organization, U.S. Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins, a "U.N. observer," was kidnapped and later hanged by Islamic terrorists in Lebanon operating under the confessional title, Hezballah - Allah's Party.
Lieutenant Colonel Higgins, was an American Marine officer serving the U.N. when his car was ambushed near the port city of Tyre. A group calling itself the Islamic Revolutionary Brigades, and also the Organization of the Oppressed of the Earth, claimed credit. They released a videotape in which Higgins was shown criticizing U.S. policy in the Middle East.
On July 31, 1989, more than a year after the kidnapping, the Organization of the Oppressed on Earth delivered a statement claiming to have killed Higgins. A new videotape showed a man hanging from a gallows. The group claimed that the execution of Higgins was carried out in retaliation for the Israeli abduction of Shiite Muslim cleric Sheik Abdel Karim Obeid from his home in Lebanon. Obeid was a senior Hizballahleader who was known to have directed many attacks against Israelis. He was also responsible for having orchestrated the abduction of Lt. Col. Higgins.
- February 19, 1988: In Namibia, a bomb exploded in a crowded South African bank killing 14 and wounding 31. The South West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) was blamed by authorities. At least 55 pounds of plastic explosives were used in the bomb, meaning that the perpetrators had money and contacts.
Like the African National Congress (ANC) in South Africa and the African Nationalist Union (ZANU) in Zimbabwe, the South West Africa People's Association (SWAPO) has made a transition from being terrorist thugs to being governing thugs. SWAPO was formed in 1960. They commenced their armed struggle in 1966 with the goal of liberating Namibia from South African control.
In 1989, South Africa agreed to allow Namibian independence in exchange for the withdrawal of Cuban troops from Angola. After a brief transition period, elections were held in 1989 and SWAPO won 57% of the vote.

- February 28, 1988: Two Fatah terrorists were killed when their kayak was intercepted by an Israeli patrol. The Arab Muslims were attempting to infiltrate Israel from southern Lebanon. They were of course carrying assault rifles, grenades, and explosives.
- February 28, 1988: A bomb exploded near the sports stadium in Tel Aviv.
- March 1, 1988: In Bangladesh, a homemade explosive device was thrown into the American Cultural Center in Dhaka. It must have been a thank you for the millions in aid America had provided the destitute Muslim nation.
- March 4, 1988: A car filled with 100 pounds of explosive was found abandoned after its driver crashed into a utility pole. Yasser Arafat's Fatah Party claimed credit for the failure and announced that U.S. Secretary of State Shultz, who was staying in a nearby Hilton Hotel, had been the intended target.
- March 4, 1988: The Middle East coordinator for the British relief group Oxfam and his Syrian colleague were kidnapped by members of the Abu Nidal Group. They were visiting a Palestinian refugee camp in Sidon at the time. A spokesman for Abu Nidal claimed that the two had not been detained for security questioning after they were seen taking photographs at the Ain Helweh refugee camp. The reason was obvious - Palestinian refugee camps were also terrorist training bases.
- March 6, 1988: A bomb was discovered and safely defused at a supermarket in Jerusalem. None of Allah's little helpers stepped up to the counter to claim credit for their failure to slice and dice Jews.
- March 7, 1988: Three Al Fatah terrorists crossed into Israel from Egypt and hijacked a bus. They then bargained for the release of all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. After the terrorists killed the sole male passenger on the bus, and began shooting the women, an antiterrorist squad killed all three jihadists.
Fatah claimed to have conducted the attack in retaliation for the killing of three Fatah operatives in Cyprus in February. Not only didn't Israeli agents have anything to do with that inter-Palestinian rivalry-based assassination, even if they had, the civilian bus would was an inappropriate choice for reprisal.
- March 7, 1988: A bomb exploded in an Israeli grammar school moments after the students had been dismissed. The explosive device had actually been set to detonate while the students of the Jewish private school were in class, but the timing device malfunctioned.

- March 11, 1988: A car bomb was discovered and defused near the central bus station in Jerusalem. The perpetrators wanted to carry out a major attack in a highly populated civilian target to protest of the visit of U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, who was staying at a nearby Hilton Hotel at the time. Yasser Arafat's terrorism-based political party Fatah claimed responsibility for this failure as well as for their attempted assassination of Secretary Shultz the previous week.
- March 12, 1988: A Pakistani air marshal was shot and wounded by a hijacker trying to divert a Pakistan International Airlines flight. There were 143 passengers and 13 crew aboard.

- March 19, 1988: In Athens, Greece, 13 people, including four U.S. servicemen, were wounded when a bomb went off at Oscar's Bar. The Revolutionary Popular Solidarity organization claimed responsibility for the attack. They said that they wanted to kill Americans "to show solidarity with the people of Palestine and Nicaragua." Police said that this group was part of the People's Revolutionary Struggle and associated with the Japanese Red Army - both of which were supported by OPEC-backed Palestinians.
- March 19, 1988: Ten minutes after a bomb blasted the Israeli Embassy in Japan, a car bomb exploded outside the Saudi Arabian airline office. The Middle Core Faction was responsible.
- March 23, 1988: Grenades were found in the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Bombay, India. The same make of grenades were used two days later against an Alitalia flight crew at the Bombay airport.
Authorities said that the man they took into custody was affiliated with the Abu Nidal Group.
- March 25, 1988: In Bombay, India, a man claiming to belong to the Cells of the Arab Fighters, jumped into a bus transporting twelve Alitalia crewmembers to a local hotel and began shooting. The pilot was seriously wounded.
The Abu Nidal Islamic jihadist tossed hand grenades at police who were in pursuit. Fortunately, but they failed to explode, and the terrorist was captured.
The Muslim had arrived in Bombay on an Alitalia flight from Australia. In a statement made to a foreign news agency, the Abu Nidal group claimed it had attacked "a group of Zionist pilots working for Alitalia.".
- March 30, 1988: A bomb injured four people in Peshawar, Pakistan when it exploded in a bazaar.

- April 5, 1988: Kuwaiti Airlines flight 422 en route from Bangkok to Kuwait was hijacked by members of Hizballah. They demanded the release of 17 pro-Iranian Shia terrorists being held in Kuwaiti jails.
The plane was diverted to Iran where the hijackers received assistance from the religious Islamic government. The ordeal ended in Islamic Algiers where the dictatorial Islamic Algerian regime negotiated with the terrorists, facilitating their safe passage out of the country and presumably back to Iran.
Three members of the Kuwaiti royal family were on board the flight. Over the course of sixteen days the Hizballahterrorists murdered of two passengers.
The original plan was to stage a double hijacking in Bangkok. However, a second team of hijackers was profiled and detained by Thai authorities just before they boarded the second jet. The release of failed team was part of the deal negotiated by terrorists.
- April 8, 1988: A Molotov cocktail was thrown into the home of a U.S. Consulate employee in East Jerusalem.
- April 9, 1988: The Black September Organization claimed responsibility for a Amman, Jordan bombing which wounded two men outside their equivalent of the department of motor vehicles.
- April 10, 1988: In Pakistan, over 100 people died from wounds they received with a weapons dump in an Islamabad, Pakistan refugee camp was sabotaged. More than 1,100 people were wounded in the resulting chaos.
Three incendiary devices were carried to the scene in trucks allegedly bearing Afghan license plates. The bombs were equipped with timed fuses so that they would explode in sequence.
The Pakistani munitions dump was supplied and managed by the Inter-Services Intelligence - the Pakistani equivalent of America's CIA. The agency supervised the transfer of billions of dollars of American-financed weapons to fundamentalist Sunni mujahideen fighting in the Great Jihad in Afghanistan. The Islamic terrorist groups reliant on American aid included al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Once again, the United States had manufactured its next enemy.
The Soviets were accused of this crime. However, it is very unlikely they committed it. No evidence was ever brought forth regarding this great tragedy, because the truth wasn't something America or the Pakistanis wanted the world to know. The CIA and the ISI were not only working together, they were aiding and abetting the most lethal Islamic terrorists.
There would be only two reasons to have a large munitions dump in the immediate proximity of a refugee camp. First, the weapons were there because they were being carried into battle by the civilians living in the Pakistani camps. As such, the "civil war" in Afghanistan, which killed over a million Afghanis, was being waged between Soviet and Pakistani factions and not on behalf of the people themselves. Second, the Pakistani ISI and the American CIA wanted to protect their arsenal by turning women and children into human shields. This is akin to HAMAS, Hizballah, and the PLO firing rockets into Israel from the playgrounds of schools and outside apartment buildings and hospitals. America and Pakistan were fighting the Soviets by hiding behind the dresses of Muslim women.
- April 10, 1988: As the explosions from the weapons dump sabotage were mutilating and killing 1,200 Afghani refugees, the offices of Saudi Arabian Airlines were bombed. Then to add insult to injury a third bomb was detonated in an ammunitions plant in Lahore, Pakistan. Seven more people were wounded.

- April 11, 1988: Afghan terrorists using American surface-to-air missiles shot down a Soviet passenger plane, killing all 29 people aboard. The U.S. and Pakistani terrorists were members of the Taliban and al-Qaeda. They said: "They didn't distinguish between civilian and military targets." It is the very job description of "terrorist.".
- April 13, 1988: In the United States, a member of the PFLP-backed Japanese Red Army was arrested while at a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike. His rental car contained three pipe bombs and additional explosives-manufacturing materials.

- April 13, 1988: Three Palestinian terrorists were killed when they tried to enter Israel from Lebanon. Papers on they were carrying confirmed that they were on a hostage-taking mission. The Palestinians were armed with American M-16 rifles and hand grenades, and with Iranian rockets.

- July 4, 1988: A bomb exploded near the U.S. Embassy in Madrid. The explosives had been hidden inside a soft drink container. The Libyan-backed Anti-Imperialist International Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack in response to the U.S. downing of an Iranian aircraft.

- July 11, 1988: Abu Nidal Muslims failed in their plan to commandeer a Greek tourist ship. The two jihadists blew themselves up in the process of assembling their bomb in a car at the Trocadero Marina. A group calling itself the Organization of the Martyrs of the Popular Revolution in Palestine claimed responsibility for the failure.
However, that was not the end of the story. The inter-island ferry City of Poros was attacked by Abu Nidal terrorists in Greek waters, killing ten and injured 98. The Middle Eastern Muslim fired assault rifles indiscriminately and threw hand grenades into the crowd. One American was among the fatalities.
The terrorists escaped but the assault appeared to have been a consequence of blundered bombing earlier in the day. Authorities speculated that the ship was to have been taken hijacked in an attempt to intimidate the Greek government and preclude their plan to extradite Muhammad Rashid, a member of the Abu Nidal Group who was being held in a Greek jail for his role in terrorizing American airliners.
In October 1989, two Abu Nidal members were convicted of various charges in connection with this attack.

- August 8, 1988: A West German businessman was murdered in front of his family in the Philippines. Three jihadists ran into their home and gunned down the manager of a nearby metal foundry.
The same day a bomb was discovered underneath the car of a U.S. serviceman stationed at Clark Air Base.
- August 8, 1988: A bomb exploded in a military C-130 Hercules aircraft after taking off from Bahawalpu, Pakistan. While it wasn't an accident, exposing the perpetrators wasn't something the military junta wanted to do. Pakistan's didtitorial President, General Zia ul-Haq, U.S. Ambassador Arnold Raphel, and the senior American military officer in Pakistan were killed in the crash as were the 37 others onboard the doomed airplane.
An argument can be made that Zia ul-Haq was the patriarch of state-sponsored terrorism. Under his regime, and with the blessing and support of his government, the Taliban and al-Qaeda were born. Zia created the Taliban for the express purpose of controlling Afghanistan. The Jimmy Carter-Zia ul-Haq partnership gave rise to al-Qaeda and to the Afghan War. Once the Great Jihad was over, and a million Muslims were dead, bin Laden and company were invited back because al-Qaeda did a better job of popularizing jihad, of recruiting Muslims, and of training them to be terrorists than did the Taliban or the Pakistani regime.
And while sponsoring the most fundamentalist and the most notorious Islamic clubs would have qualified Zia for Muslim Hall of Shame status, this bad boy did more to extablish his place in hell. He turned Pakistan's ISI intelligence service into a terrorist organization, one that would ultimately protect bin Laden and bankroll Muhammad Atta - the lead 9/11 suicide bomber. Moreover, under Zia's watch Pakistan built the world's most active terrorist consortium. It included Hezb-ul-Mujahideen (the Party of Holy Warriors), Jaish-e-Muhammad (the Army of Muhammad), Lashkar-e-Tayyba (the Army of the Righteous and Pure), al-Arifeen (the Holy Men), Jamaat-e-Islami (the Islamic Assembly), Lashkar-e-Jabbar, and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. Zia ul-Haq's clubs commit more terrorist acts today than the combined efforts of all others - including Hizballah and HAMAS.
As horrible as all this is, that is not the end of the bad news. The terrorist Hall of Fame was sponsored by the American taxpayer and the Saudi OPECers. The West, at the behest of corrupt politicians and under the comatose watch of an ignorant media, literally funded its own funeral. The Pakistani/Saudi/American alliance not only gave rise to the jihadist clubs which would kill thousands and then millions, under Zia ul-Haq's watch, it aided and abetted the construction of the weapons of mass destruction these Islamic terrorists will deploy - nuclear bombs.
They will use them. I guarantee it. Sometime over the next 20 years, between 2007 and 2027, two or more of America's largest cities will be laid waste, becoming uninhabitable - effectively destroying the nation as we know it. It is my opinion that they will sail the bombs into America's cities undetected and then detonate them in the ultimate suicide bombing.
But that is not the end of the story. Pakistan's nuclear arcenal will play a role in sparking nuclear holocaust. In the aftermath of the Magog War, the all-Islamic assault on Israel which ends around April 13th, 2029, the unimaginable happens. Suffient nuclear bombs are released to scorch one third of the earth's surface.

- October 20, 1988: In the United States, gunmen tried to assassinate the president of the Croatian Movement for Statehood. There is speculation that the Yugoslavian government was involved in the attack, but it was more likely that Ustashi terrorists were ridding themselves of a rival.

During the 18-hour ordeal, the Islamic jihadists shot one man in the head, killing him instantly. Survivors said that the terrorists were on drugs, as they sliced long gashes on their arms with a knife and then poured salt in their wounds. In this regard they were like the Hassan's Fedayeen Hashshashin Assassins.

- November 30, 1988: Two incendiary devices were thrown into the U.S. Consulate in East Jerusalem.
- December 5, 1988: Iranian refugees waiting outside a United Nations agency office in Karachi, Pakistan were attacked by a masked Islamic gunman. One person was killed and five were wounded.
- December 8, 1988: In the Western Sahara, two DC-7s carrying American and Canadian citizens working under contract for U.S. AID were brought down by heat-seeking missiles fired by Islamic Polisario terrorists. Five Americans and three Canadians were killed in the crash. The Polisario Front apologized and claimed they'd mistaken the planes for Moroccan military aircraft.
The Polisario Front was committed to the liberation of the Saharawi people and to the independence of their territory. The former Spanish colony of Western Sahara was currently occupied by Morocco. Spain abandoned its colonial ambitions in the territory in 1975 and divided the area between Morocco and Mauritania.
From refugee camps in Algeria, the Polisario Front declared themselves the government-in-exile of the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic. The phantom state was diplomatically recognized by over 60 nations.
The Polisario Front began using hit-and-run attacks on Spanish settlements and military installations. Polisario attacked both Moroccan and Mauritanian targets following the Spanish departure including military installations, iron-ore mining operations, and the Mauritanian capital of Nouakchott. While Mauritania signed a peace treaty with the Polisario Front in 1979, this was quickly nullified when Morocco annexed the Mauritanian portion of Western Sahara.
From that time on, Polisario's attacks were focused on the Moroccan military. At the height of its strength in the 1980s, the Polisario Front consisted of approximately 15,000 militants. Financially supported by the Islamic OPEC regimes in Libyan and Algerian, the Polisario Front's jihadists were well-trained, well-armed, and highly mobile. The Muslim mujahideen PF was so well equipped they perpetrated heavy casualties on the Moroccan military, resulting in large-scale losses of Moroccan armor.
Then when Algerian and Libyan OPEC funding was dried up, the Polisario Front signed a UN-sponsored peace treaty with the Moroccans in 1991. The accord called for a referendum that would allow the Saharawis to choose between independence or integration into Morocco. However, this treaty faltered when OPEC funding was restored.
In 2003, after intense negotiations, Polisario agreed to a new peace plan as put forth by former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker. The plan called for a five-year transitional period to be followed by a statewide referendum on independence or integration with Morocco. During this time Morocco would be responsible for Western Sahara's security and defense, and there would be autonomous local administration under an elected Western Sahara Authority. The Muslims loved the Baker Plan, but it was not acceptable to the Moroccans.
As well as serving as Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Muhammad Abdelaziz currently serves as President of the government-in-exile of the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic.
- December 12, 1988: A Belgian teacher was assassinated by jihadists in West Beirut.
- December 16, 1988: Three Irish soldiers assigned to the U.N. peacekeeping force were abducted by members of the Faithful Resistance. The FR was a splinter of Hizballah. The three Irishmen were rescued by AMAL the following day, strongly suggesting that the Shiite AMAL was miffed at having been spurned by Iran in favor of Hizballah.
- December 19, 1988: Three bombs exploded at an immigrant hostel in southern France not far from Nice. The facility catered to a substantial number of North African Muslims. One person was killed and 12 others were injured. Anti-Islamic pamphlets were found at the scene. A group calling itself "Masada" claimed responsibility.
Masada is the bluff where Jews defied the Romans during the 70 CE assault on Jerusalem. And while Jews would have ample reason to attack Muslims for the crimes they had perpetrated against them in Morocco and France, Jewish organizations very seldom sponsor attacks on civilian targets. They target their reprisals on those who have conceived and carried out terrorist acts against them, only killing civilians when the terrorist leaders use women and children as shields.
- December 21, 1988: Pan Am flight 103 to New York from London was destroyed by a bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland. All 259 aboard were killed, including American students and military personnel. Another 11 people lost their lives on the ground as the plane fell from the sky. Twelve others were seriously injured. The plane had been at a cruising altitude of 31,000 feet when it disappeared from radar screens.
The Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, a pro-Ayatollah Khomeini Shia organization, claimed responsibility. They said that they had killed the passengers in retaliation for the U.S. downing of an Iranian airliner earlier in the year.
However, good Muslims lie. It is the only thing they do better than kill. The Islamic terrorists who perpetrated this attack belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command. The jihadists were trained by Abu Nidal, and they were sponsored by the OPEC regimes of Libya and Iran.
According to officials, a suitcase bomb which was discovered after the incident, contained 30 pounds of the Czechoslovakian-manufactured Semtex H - a plastic explosive. A Toshiba portable radio was transformed into a timing device with a barometric trigger.
The attack was preceded by a telephone call to the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki on December 5th. An anonymous caller warned of the planned bombing of a Pan Am flight out of Frankfurt to the United States within the next two weeks. Flight 103 originated in Frankfurt, Germany. While private citizens were not notified of the threat, U.S. embassy personnel were advised of the situation, and stayed clear of the flight.
In July 1989, U.S. intelligence officials identified four terrorists responsible for the bomb on Flight 103. The key figure in the attack was Hafez Kassem Dalkimoni, a 43-year old Palestinian from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command. This Muslim was cooling his heels in a West German prison, awaiting trial for possession of explosives.
Khalid Jaafar of Lebanon was aboard Flight 103 when it exploded. So he had already been tried and convicted by a higher court. The other two suspects were unnamed in the American intelligence report. However, both were picked up and held briefly by West German police before the Pan Am flight 103 bombing on explosive charges. Unfortunately, they were released for lack of evidence in a swirl of controversy regarding racial and religious profiling.
In 1991, the identities of the unnamed terrorists were revealed. Abd al-Basset Ali Muhammad al-Megrahi had been head of security for Libyan Arab Airlines. His assistant was Al Amin Khalifa Fhimah. They were indicted in connection with the attack. Then in April 1999, the accused Libyans were handed over to Scotland for trial.
Because of the international ramifications, the trial was held in the Netherlands in May 2000. The verdict was read in January 2001. Al-Megrahi was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Fhimah was found not guilty and shipped back to Libya. In October 2002, the Libyan government agreed to compensate the victims of the attack, and in April 2003, Libya formally accepted responsibility for the bombing because of the consequence of the economic sanctions brought to bear on the Qadhafi regime. In September 2003, UN sanctions against Libya were lifted.
In that most all of the syphilitic OPECer's airline bombings and hijackings of late had been managed by his terrorist for hire, Abu Nidal, the ANG was culpable in this bombing. While the Marxist Muslim Libyan dictator originally became a state-sponsor of terrorism deploying Carlos the Jackal and the PFLP, they had long since been replaced.
During the time the Muslim mass murderers were being coddled by the Libyan government, and wined and dined on OPEC funds for ten years, Pan Am Airlines, not the Islamic terrorists, was convicted of "willful misconduct." The ignorant verdict brought the airline down along with flight 103.

- December, 1988: al-Attas bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's half sister, married Muhammad Jamal Khalifa, the founder of Benevolence International Foundation in the Philippines. Through this Islamic charity, millions of dollars in international donations were funneled to al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists.
Muhammad Khalifa also managed the International Relations and Information Center through which he embezzled money that was used to fund Ramzi Yousef, the Muslim responsible for the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing and the first bombing of the World Trade Center. In 1993, Muhammad Khalifa's business cards were found in the Jersey City apartment that Ramzi Yousef stayed in while he was planning that year's attack on the World Trade Center.
Khalifa was arrested on December 14, 1994 in Mountain View, California on suspicion of funding the World Trade Center bombing, but with diplomatic connections and money, he was released. Muhammad Khalifa was arrested again in San Francisco in 1995, this time on immigration violations. The FBI, under considerable political pressure, said that they did not have sufficient evidence to convict terror's financier so Osama bin Laden's brother in law was deported to Jordan in May 1995. The reason for Jordan was because he had an outstanding warrant there on charges stemming from the bombing of movie theaters in Amman in 1994, of which he had been convicted in absentia.
But since the bin Laden's were heroes in the Islamic world, and since terror is a badge of honor in Islam, Muhammad Khalifa had his conviction overturned. He was acquitted and returned to Saudi Arabia where he continued to fund America's destruction.
