In the wake of Islamic Jihadists almost completely overrunning Libya, the same terrorists have threatened to attack the nearest European nation, specifically, the Italian Republic. As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal on Feb. 19, 2015, the descendants of the Roman Empire are preparing for the distinct possibly of a 9/11 redux, complete with stolen jetliners.
As the Italian Secret Service warned the military that commandeered civilian jetliners were being “prepared” for a mission that the Italians have so far kept from the public. As reported, an undisclosed number of aircraft are being readied in the coastal city of Sirte, a rather short distance of 450 miles to Palermo, or 700 miles to Rome.
As Breitbart.com noted on Feb. 15, 2015, in an ISIS released video that featured the brutal slaying of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians, the spokesman of killers plainly said to the camera, “And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission, the promise of our Prophet, peace be upon him.”
While many Western news organizations paid scant attention, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Sept. 2, 2014 that with the fall of the Tripoli International Airport, a number of jet airliners have been seized intact by the terrorists. Calling themselves by the macho moniker of The Masked Men Brigade, the group not only controls the airport proper, but now reportedly has custody of upwards of 11 aircraft belonging to both Libyan Airways as well as Afriqiyah Airways.
