Swiss Raised Terror Alert Tied to Attacks Planned on US Cities

Independent Sentinel

Shocker! The Swiss recently raised their terror alert and are hunting for four Syrians who are planning attacks against Switzerland and cities in the US including Chicago. They are also planning attacks in Toronto and Geneva. The US intelligence services are the ones that tipped them off.

Two Syrians were arrested in Switzerland but it’s not known if they are tied to the other four. They had traces of explosives in their car.

The four are believed to be part of the Mourad Fares network. Fares is a known recruiter for jihad in Syria. French intelligence sources say he’s worked for ISIS, mainly in Francophone countries, and in Switzerland, including in Geneva.

ISIS has been threatening terror attacks in Switzerland for months and a January video encouraged an attack in Switzerland.

A photo of the four terrorists has been released so if you see these men, notify the US authorities who released the photo.

The photo was allegedly sent by US authorities and shows the suspects sitting holding up the Daesh finger sign with their faces hidden – this is the politically correct version I suppose. Hopefully the Swiss authorities have photos without their faces blocked.

The terrorists are tied to one of the Paris attackers at the Bataclan.

If they succeed in attacking a US city, will it be gun violence or workplace violence?

Not good.

Via BPR:

Real trouble could be brewing in America’s heartland — or it could all be coincidence.

It began late last week when “Middle Eastern men” reportedly depleted the stock in pre-paid cell phones at two Missouri Walmart locations, alerting local law enforcement and FBI officials.

Sixty were purchased Saturday in Lebanon, Missouri at 3:50 am, and hours before, at another Walmart store in Columbia about 100 miles away, another 40 were sold.

This week, a third Walmart location in Macon, Missouri, reported a suspicious cell phone sale, and Thursday, a fourth location in Jefferson City reported a similar bulk purchase.

Pre-paid cell phones are ideal for customers who rarely need one because there’s no monthly service fee associated with them.

And for that reason, pre-paid cell phones are the tool of choice for criminals — who refer to them as “burn phones” — because they can’t be traced to any one individual, especially if purchased in cash.

They can also be used as detonators for improvised explosive devices, which segues neatly into another “coincidence.”
