Frankfurt Airport Jihad: Who is to blame?
Frankfurt Airport Jihad: Who is to blame?

On March 2, two US airmen were killed and two injured, at least one critically, in front of Terminal 2 of the second continental Europe’s busiest Frankfurt Airport. Reportedly, the US forces were on the way to Afghanistan from their base Lakenheath airfield in England. The perpetrator was a “Kosovar,” the term invented by the western media. There is no “Kosovar” nation outside the media creations. There are a number of nationalities who live in Kosovo, i.e. Albanians, Serbs, Roma, Gorani, and others. None of them are identifying themselves as “Kosovars.”
The perpetrator, who fired nine times before his gun jammed, was identified as 21-year old Arif Uka, a Kosovo citizen of Albanian ethnicity. Family members describe Arif Uka, nicknamed Abu Reyann, as a devout Muslim, who was born and raised in Germany, and worked at the airport. His grandfather was a religious leader at a mosque in a village near Kosovska Mitrovica. He was radicalized including his chosen “warrior” name. His Facebook page was littered with hate-filled rants against Jews and a cry to Jihad: “That is part of this beautiful religion. One is allowed to fight the unbelievers when attacked.” He called Chancellor Merkel an “unbeliever” because of her support of Israel. He yelled a standard Islamist slogan “Allah Akbar!” (Allah is Great in Arabic) as he was murdering the American airmen. German prosecutors said that shooting was “motivated by Islamic extremism.”
Remember, the Ft. Hood massacre in November 2009? Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a US born Muslim, also yelled “Allah Akbar” as he fired over 100 shots murdering 13 Department of Defense (DoD) employees and wounding another 32. The 9/11 hijackers also yelled “Allah Akbar” as they were crashing planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Last year in Germany there was a high alert for a terror attack in response to the threat from Al Qaeda because of German involvement in Afghanistan. In 2007, the German police thwarted a plot to attack soldiers and citizens at the Ramstein Air Base by members of The Islamic Jihad Union.
In Washington, President Obama said that he was “saddened and outraged.” “We will spare no effort in learning how this outrageous act took place and in working with the German authorities to ensure that all of the perpetrators are brought to justice.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the shooting as a “terrible incident.” She also pledged a thorough investigation. The key question is if these investigations indeed are going to be thorough or amount to a whitewash? Investigations must address both the US and German foreign and immigration policies with associated mainstream media cover-ups of failures associated with those policies as well as root causes for the failure to prevent this particular jihadist act.
The Frankfurt Airport jihad is not the first time the Albanians were part of the international jihad. The 2007 Fort Dix plot comes quickly to mind. The institutionalized political correctness approach was used then by the mainstream media in order to cover up the identity of four conspirators. They were first identified as “Yugoslavs.” Of course the Serbs were Yugoslavs while Yugoslavia existed. Then the conspirators became Macedonians. While the three were Macedonian-Albanians, the fourth was a Kosovo Albanian, who belonged to the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). The US authorities broke up a militant cell in North Carolina. In 2009, an Albanian-American from Brooklyn attempted a trip to Pakistan for terrorist training.
In Kosovo, Al Qaeda found a fertile recruitment ground. The population is the youngest in Europe, average age under 30, and Muslims constitute 80%. In my book Kosovo is Serbia, I reported that some 1500 potential White Al Qaeda terrorists (Albanians, Bosnian Muslims) were recruited. The western intelligence agencies were monitoring but shockingly disinterested. They didn’t want “to rock the boat.” The threats were consistently downplayed by both the UN and NATO. A plot to kill US soldiers in the Bondsteel cafeteria was foiled but never reported by the media.
US Foreign Policies
The WWII and the Cold War are probably the most recognized foreign policy successes, which contributed towards positive image of America’s role in the world affairs. The Cold War turned the U.S. into the hegemon of the western world. The U.S. was the leader of a voluntary military alliance, the North American Treaty Organization (NATO). The American hegemony was fully accepted by the Western European allies. In the aftermath of the Cold War, the US has become the world’s lone hegemonic superpower starting with proclamation of the New World Order (NWO). The foreign policies have resembled behavior of not only hegemonic but in some cases of a rogue superpower. Most interventions have been in search of a global hegemony.
A drastic case is support for the Balkan jihads (Bosnia and Kosovo) since 1992 against the Serbian Orthodox Christians. Al Qaeda was the Clinton administration’s partner in the Balkans. U.S. planes transported the mujahideen to Bosnia to fight Christian Serbs and Croats. As a result Bosnia became the hub of terrorist operations extending into Western Europe and North America, including 9/11. The Hamburg Al Qaeda cell, which played a pivotal part in 9/11, was recruited from Bosnia.
The military interventions have been dressed up as noble pursuits such as removals of despotic regimes, e.g.. the Milosevic’s regime in the rump Yugoslavia, i.e. Serbia and Montenegro. This was preceded with heavy doses of incessant demonizations of the Serbs as people, or even illusions of humanitarian interventions such as the one in Yugoslavia in 1999. The official version for the public consumption was: the US/NATO attacked Yugoslavia in order to stop genocide. There was no genocide, not even ethnic cleansing. It was simply a media lie. For the complete background, the author refers to two of his books: Kosovo Crisis: A Study in Foreign Policy Mismanagement and Kosovo is Serbia: The Amputation of A Sovereign Country by US-Sponsored Muslim Terrorists.
The Clinton and Bush administrations have used the KLA, a terrorist Muslim dominated organization initially supported by Osama bin Laden to amputate Serbia in violation of a host of international laws in order to create a Muslim dominated entity in Europe and thus appease the radical Islam. The KLA, during insurgency from Northern Albania into Kosovo, in order to fight the Serbian police relied on terrorism not different from methods used by the Hezbollah. The Hezbollah and the KLA are both the terrorist organizations. Despite its terrorist tactics Hezbollah has successfully recast itself as a legitimate political party. With support from the US/EU, the KLA did the same.
Following amputation of Serbia the next big objective was to create a “Republic of Kosovo,” which was self-proclaimed in 2008 and have been recognized by 75 countries out of 192 UN members. The KLA committed numerous atrocities over the Serbs, Roma and its own people who were characterized as “collaborators.” The western governments as well as the mainstream media covered up these grisly crimes until the Council of Europe (CoE) in December 2010 issued the report authored by the Swiss-Italian politician, senator and prosecuting lawyer Dick Marty. The report describes Kosovo rulers, led by the Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, as a network of organized crime, murder, extortion, trafficking in guns, narcotics, sex slaves, and forcibly organ harvesting. I have written three essays on the subject of organ harvesting: in April 2008 Bankruptcy of Moral Values: Butchering of Serbs Condoned by the West; in December 2010 Amorality of US Kosovo Policy: Friends with the Snake; and in February 2011 Grisly Albanian Organ Harvesting Crimes: Is Justice Going To Be Served, which was posted on the Modern Tokyo Times.
Mainstream Media Coverage
The Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) voiced criticism of the media. “Despite the claims that the press has an adversarial relationship with the government, in truth US media generally follow Washington’s official line. This is particularly obvious in wartime and in foreign policy coverage, but even with domestic controversies, the spectrum of debate usually falls in the relatively narrow range between the leadership of the Democratic and Republic parties.”
Self-censorship has become the common practice in the mainstream media to cover up the failures of the US foreign policies, in the Balkans in particular.
A Ticking Time Bomb
Arif Uka, Major Hasan and Khalid Aldawsari (Saudi student studying in Texas arrested by FBI for planning a terrorist attack on US targets using explosive chemicals) cases illustrate the risks the western societies are facing from Islamist lone wolf terrorists. The Islamic virus has not been confined to those born in the Islamic countries. Detection and interdiction of these terrorists is one of the most difficult tasks facing the law enforcement and intelligence agencies. There is only so much they can do. Hence, it becomes even more important to focus on the foreign and immigration policies. Chancellor Merkel at least recognizes that multiculturism utopia is a failure, while President Obama is telling Americans that their country is no longer a Christian country and that Islam is the religion of peace.
