Refugee gets four years in prison for plotting terror attacks in Iran | NL Times |

The court in Rotterdam found 42-year-old Eisa S. guilty of plotting and encouraging attacks in Iran carried out by resistance group ASMLA. "Terrorist activities for which there is no justification," the judges ruled.

They also labeled ASMLA as a "criminal and terrorist organization" which S. participated in and helped finance.

Iran: Terror Strikes IRGC Forces In Parade

Authorities arrested S. early last year after the AIVD intercepted chat messages used to plan attacks against checkpoints, police stations, and engineers in Iran. Plots that were discussed and carried out included the attacks on the country's Revolutionary Guard in September 2018 that left 25 people dead. Three ASMLA leaders were taken into custody in Denmark at the same time S. was arrested.

    Iran accused the Netherlands, as well as Denmark and the United Kingdom, of sheltering Iranian opposition groups. The country considers it unacceptable that these opposition groups are not considered terrorist organizations in the European Union. The Iranian government condemned these three countries for the attack and call on them to deal with the people behind it, a spokesperson for the Iranian government said.

The chats in the Netherlands were conducted from 2017 to 2020 in Rijswijk using the Telegram and WhatsApp accounts of the ASMLA TV channel, the OM said. The movement seeks the liberation of the Ahvaz region of Iran.

Diaries have covered terror from outside militants receiving funds, support and intelligence from America, UK, Israel and Balochistan.

Who are the members of the European Parlement to support terror attacks on a sovereign state? Do they believe nations like Israel can execute terror with impunity?

Already at war with Iran without any criticism from Western allies intend to negotiate a return to the JCPOA in good faith?

From al-Qaeda evolving into ISIS or ISIL in the Levant and now expressed as Daesh in the Arab world. The complete false notion from the Obama administration before the 2012 election that al-Qaeda terror was defeated, faithfully repeated on the liberal blogs and just a minority calling it false.

Lecture: From Wahhabism to ISIS: How did Saudi Arabia export global terrorism to Europe's youngsters?, Amsterdam

As the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) demolishes nation states, ISIS's obscene savagery seems to epitomize the violence. Some will see the group's ferocious irredentism as proof of Islam's chronic inability to embrace modern values. Although ISIS is an Islamic movement, it is neither typical nor mired in the distant past, because its roots are in the Salafi practice of Wahhabism, a form of Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia that developed only in the 18th century. The European Parliament identified Wahhabism as the main source of global terrorism. As more youngsters in Europe find solace in Salafism and join the ranks of ISIS the question arises: How did Saudi-Arabia's Wahhabis export global terrorism to Europe's youngsters?

Our first speaker will be Drs. Paul Aarts. Drs. Aarts is a lecturer in International Relations at the department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam. He is a specialist on the Middle East in general and the Gulf states in particular. He has researched the political dynamics of Saudi Arabia extensively.
