ISIS Bomb Took Down Russian Airliner

November 4, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – It is now the consensus opinion of the media that the Russian Airbus A321-200a [Kogalymavia, Flight 9268] which crashed in the Sinai on Saturday killing all 224 passengers was brought down due to an act of terrorism, most likely at the hands of ISIS, which claimed responsibility for the attack shortly after its occurrence.

We filed two reports on the incident, the first just hours after Russian aircraft inexplicably slammed into the desert a little more than 20 minutes after having taken off from Sharm El-Sheikh airport in Egypt. Both of them expressed our carefully reasoned opinion that terrorism loomed as the only reasonable explanation.

November 1:

“Though speculative, we believe that the possibility of terrorism regarding this event is quite high given the number of incidents which would have to be dismissed as being purely coincidental in order for the crash to have occurred for reasons not related to terrorism or some similar external agent.

A Russian airliner was indeed brought down; it broke up in mid air, apparently without warning; Russia has recently expanded its air operations in Syria, hitting targets believed to be associated with ISIS, prompting threats of reprisal; The group has claimed responsibility; The Sinai is a known to house numerous jihadist groups and ISIS has already made its presence known, “On 29 January 2015, militants from the ISIL-affiliated Wilayat Sinai (Sinai Province) militant group launched a series of attacks on army and police bases in Arish using car bombs and mortars. The attacks, which occurred in more than six different locations, resulted in 44 deaths: source, Wiki].” [source, [ Was Russian Airliner Brought Down By A Bomb? , PLN]

As this matter currently stands - taking into account that the investigation is still unfolding - the most reasonable working theory is that this tragedy was directly associated with jihad.”

We updated that filing on November 3:

"With each passing hour it seems more likely that the Russian Airbus A321-200a [Kogalymavia, Flight 9268] which crashed in the Sinai on Saturday killing all 224 passengers and crew was brought down due to an act of terrorism. As this matter currently stands - taking into account that the investigation is still unfolding - the most reasonable working theory is that this tragedy was directly associated with jihad."

From a piece just posted by the Washington Post:

“In a Wednesday night television appearance, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond cited “a significant possibility that the crash was caused by an explosive device on board the aircraft.” He said that flights from Britain to Sharm el-Sheikh would be suspended indefinitely…a U.S. official said that intelligence potentially indicates the Russian plane was brought down by a bomb” [Griff Witt and Erin Cunningham, Britain Suspends Flights From Sinai, Citing Bomb Fears ]

This administration has been criminally negligent, and much of the Western world complicit, in refusing to take proactive kinetic measures to deal with the global jihad, especially in light of the horrors perpetrated over the last year by ISIS.

In the face of what is now a clear demonstration of the increasingly deadly ability of ISIS to project power far outside its central base of operation, President Obama still refuses to even acknowledge the linkage between Islam and terrorism.

On the specifics of the Russian disaster he has yet to make a statement.

As this event continues to unfold, Europe and to a lesser degree, the United States are facing a colonial invasion as millions of young Muslim males defiantly bring with them a 10th century culture of rape, violence and intolerance into what used to be the cradle of modern civilization.

It’s no wonder that the public merrily goes about its business oblivious to the existential threat facing them, as the media carefully controls what it does and does not cover relating to terrorism. Upon the occasion that the legacy scriveners are forced to report about such matter it refuses to honestly deal with the nature of a war in which we are already deeply involved.
