Aborted Terror Plots

(CNN)A 26-year-old former US Army soldier who served in Afghanistan has been charged with plotting terror attacks in the Los Angeles area, the Justice Department said Monday.
Mark Steven Domingo allegedly sought to detonate improvised explosive devices containing nails this past weekend at a rally in Long Beach that was organized by a white nationalist group.
He was arrested Friday night after he took receipt of what he thought were pressure cooker bombs, US Attorney Nick Hanna announced at a press conference.
"Law enforcement was able to identify a man consumed with hate, and bent on mass murder and stop him before he was able to carry out his attack," Hanna said.
Domingo allegedly wanted to "seek retribution for attacks against Muslims" and also considered attacks on Jewish people, churches and law enforcement.
He is accused of targeting "Jews as they walked to synagogue, police officers, a military facility, and crowds at the Santa Monica Pier."
On March 2, DOJ says Domingo posted a video online professing his Muslim faith and wrote, "America needs another Vegas event," referring to the mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017 in which more than 50 people died.
Domingo is a recent convert to Islam, Hanna said.
He wanted to give "them a taste of the terror they gladly spread all over the world," according to the Justice Department.
Following a mass shooting attack on a mosque in New Zealand in March that killed dozens of people, Domingo posted, "there mustbe (sic) retribution."
Domingo asked an FBI informant to find someone to construct an IED, according to the Justice Department. He met with the informant and came armed with an AK-47 style rifle.
There is no ongoing threat to public and no known co-conspirators, Hanna said.
Hanna said the "criminal case outlines a chilling terrorism plot that developed over the past two months and targeted innocent Americans that he expected to gather this past weekend."

    Un projet d’attentat susceptible de viser les forces de sécurité déjoué

    Plusieurs personnes, dont un mineur, ont été arrêtées vendredi, a annoncé le parquet de Paris ce lundi matin.

    Ils avaient prévu de frapper des forces de sécurité. Plusieurs individus ont été arrêtés vendredi dernier, soupçonnés de préparer «un passage à l’acte violent, à brève échéance», rapporte au Figaro le parquet de Paris, confirmant une information de BFMTV. Ces interpellations ont eu lieu dans le cadre d’une enquête préliminaire, confiée à la DGSI (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Intérieure) et ouverte par le parquet de Paris le 1er février dernier du chef «d’association de malfaiteurs terroriste criminelle».
    Selon nos informations, il s’agissait de quatre hommes qui cherchaient à se procurer des armes pour commettre une action terroriste. Leur garde à vue, dans les locaux de la DGSI à Levallois-Perret, dans les Hauts-de-Seine, était toujours en cours ce lundi matin. «Nous avions des indications suffisamment significatives pour craindre un attentat important», a souligné le ministre de l’Intérieur, Christophe Castaner, devant la presse à l’issue de la mise en place d’une cellule alerte prévention suicide pour les policiers.
    Un mineur parmi les interpellés
    Parmi les suspects interpellés, un mineur de 17 ans bien connu des services de police et de la justice. Le jeune homme avait été arrêté en février 2017 à l’âge de 15 ans, alors qu’il cherchait à se rendre en Syrie. Il avait été condamné par le tribunal pour enfants pour des faits qualifiés d’association de malfaiteurs terroriste et avait écopé d’une peine de trois ans de prison dont deux assortis d’un sursis avec mise à l’épreuve. Après avoir été placé en centre éducatif fermé (CEF) puis incarcéré, il était actuellement au sein d’une structure éducative dans le cadre de cette mise à l’épreuve.
    Les trois autres personnes, âgées de 26, 39 et 38 ans, sont connues pour des faits de droit commun, selon une source proche de l’enquête. «On a affaire à des individus manifestement déterminés», a précisé une source proche du dossier. Selon elle, «de possibles repérages avaient été effectués et ils cherchaient à se procurer des armes». En garde à vue, ils ne contestent pas leur adhésion aux thèses islamistes radicales, a ajouté la même source.
    Les forces de l’ordre figurent parmi les cibles privilégiées de l’organisation État islamique (EI). Depuis 2015, policiers et militaires ont été plusieurs fois attaqués: on se souvient notamment de l’attentat de Magnanville en 2016, durant lequel deux policiers ont perdu la vie, de l’attaque du Louvre qui visait des militaires de l’opération Sentinelle, ou de la fusillade sur les Champs-Elysées en avril 2017, ayant fait un mort et deux blessés.
    Signe que la menace continue de peser, plusieurs projets d’attentats ont été déjoués depuis le début de l’année 2019. Mi-avril, un adolescent de 16 ans, radicalisé sur Internet, a été arrêté en possession d’éléments troublants à l’occasion d’une «visite domiciliaire». Sur son ordinateur, les enquêteurs avaient retrouvé des «tutoriels détaillant des méthodes d’action terroriste», des vidéos djihadistes et des «recherches sur internet concernant des militaires et la police, notamment la DGSI».Quelques semaines auparavant, deux hommes âgés d’une vingtaine d’annéesavaient été interpellés et mis en examen pour un projet d’attentat contre un établissement scolaire ou un policier. L’un d’eux, ayant des troubles psychiatriques, avait cherché à se procurer des armes, ce qui avait attiré l’attention des services de renseignement.

    You live in France, don't you? Why do you care about what happens in the US, trying to pass Muslism as victims? Worry about the several Islamic terrorist attacks that are planned everyday in France, like this one where a typical Muslim tried to kill Jewish TODDLERS. I wonder why you didn't post this. ?

    Did you read the article? They said he was a recent Muslim convert so he is indeed Muslim! Also what exactly is misleading about the title? Aborted terror plots.. the guy was planning a terror attack and was caught, exactly as the title suggests

    Did you read the second article posted in this thread? How about maybe you don't jump to random conclusions, take a moment to read and understand what you are reading and then write down random garbage

    Deja vu.
    Israel went though it about 14 years ago and learnt how to prevent it and keep life going uninterrupted.
    We will learn too.

    It's very hard to converse with very many of you - have you ever heard of IED.
    It is now you know that it is harmless can of soup and not can loaded with C4 with phone antenna sticking out of it.

    muzzies were blowing jews on a daily basis
    and of course shouting allahu akbar

    so Israel built a fence and introduced strict security measures and each bomber will have his home destroyed

    they forgot to add one more thing, that CHINA IS DOING , isarel should learn from china

    each bomber family , will be sent to a reeducation camp and will be shown how to live like a non muslim...basically
    they will be eating pork nd drinking mounkar and living a normal life, no hijab, etc
