Prior Knowledge: Previously Arrested French jihadist ‘instructed’ to attack concert / Iraq warned France of Attack
The 4 prime indicators of a False Flag are 1) Prior Knowledge, 2) Stand Down, 3) Cover Up, and 4) Cui Bono (Who Benefits)
We KNOW that “ISIS” was created and funded by London, DC, Tel Aviv cabal…. Even as we knew that Al Qaeda was organized blowback from 1980’s Afghanistan, aka the Mujahideen, via National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
A French national suspected of planning a terrorist attack in France after returning from the Islamic State group’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa was arrested last month, officials said Friday.
The man admitted to police that he had been instructed to carry out an attack onFrench soil – “preferably” during a concert – but has denied that he had any intention of following through with the plan, according to a judicial source.
He was not immediately identified by police, but the source told AFP that he was a 29-year-old who had spent one week in Raqqa. He was arrested on August 11 at his home and charged with “criminal association in relation with a criminal terrorist enterprise”.
“This is one of those cases in which individuals want to carry out terrorist attacks,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters during a trip to the northern city of Roubaix on Friday.
The suspect did not have a police record and was unknown to French intelligence services before his trip to Syria, the judicial source said.
A handgun was reportedly found at his home during the arrest.
During questioning, the suspect told police he had spent one week in Raqqa – which became the Islamic State (IS) group’s de facto capital in northern Syria in mid-2013 – where he was injured during combat training.
Before returning to France, he received precise instructions about which route to take back to Paris and about carrying out an attack, the suspect allegedly told police after his arrest.
French police were tipped off to the former jihadist’s presence in France after the arrest of another suspect, on June 15 in Poland. The second man, a Moroccan national, was detained on a Spanish arrest warrant.
Suspected of spending time among IS militants in Syria, the Moroccan confessed he had not travelled to Europe alone – identifying the man now in French police custody.
French in Syria
The fear of Syrian blowback in France – namely, that French citizens who joined the ranks of the IS group could return home to stage terrorist attacks – has gripped the country since the deadly Charlie Hebdo shootings in January.
Cherif and Said Kouachi, the two men who gunned down 12 people at the satirical weekly, received combat training in Yemen under the auspices of al Qaeda.
The French government revealed this week that 1,880 French citizens or residents were directly involved in jihadist networks. It said 133 people had died while fighting, with 491 others still waging war abroad.
France started surveillance flights over IS group-held territory in Syria this month, saying reconnaissance was necessary to prevent future terrorist plans and to inform future air strikes on IS targets.

This has “limited hangout” written into the body. EG: It supports the official story, and hints at French “Incompetence” to act of intelligence. (same cover we saw post Sept 11th)
Iraqi intelligence sent dispatch saying “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” had ordered an attack on coalition countries fighting against them in Iraq and Syria, as well as on Iran and Russia.
Senior Iraqi intelligence officials warned coalition countries of imminent assaults by the Islamic State group just one day before last week’s deadly attacks in Paris killed 132 people, The Associated Press has learned.
Iraqi intelligence sent a dispatch saying the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had ordered an attack on coalition countries fighting against them in Iraq and Syria, as well as on Iran and Russia, “through bombings or assassinations or hostage taking in the coming days.”
The dispatch said the Iraqis had no specific details on when or where the attack would take place, and a senior French security official told the AP that French intelligence gets this kind of communication “all the time” and “every day.”
However, six senior Iraqi officials corroborated the information in the dispatch, a copy of which was obtained by the AP, and four of these intelligence officials said they also warned France specifically of a potential attack. Two officials told the AP that France was warned beforehand of details that French authorities have yet to make public.
Among them: that the Paris attacks appear to have been planned in Raqqa, Syria — the Islamic State’s de-facto capital — where the attackers were trained specifically for this operation and with the intention of sending them to France.
The officials also said a sleeper cell in France then met with the attackers after their training and helped them to execute the plan.
There were 24 people involved in the operation, they said: 19 attackers and five others in charge of logistics and planning.
The officials all spoke anonymously because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility on Saturday for the gun and bomb attacks on a stadium, a concert hall and Paris cafes that also wounded 350 people, 99 of them seriously. Seven of the attackers blew themselves up. Police have been searching intensively for accomplices.
Iraq’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, also told journalists in Vienna on Sunday that Iraqi intelligence agencies had obtained information that some countries would be targeted, including France, the United States and Iran, and had shared the intelligence with those countries.
Officials in the French presidential palace would not comment, and U.S. officials didn’t immediately comment when contacted by The AP.
Every night, the head of French counterintelligence goes to bed asking ‘why not today?’ the French security official said.
The Iraqi government has been sharing intelligence with various coalition nations since they launched their airstrike campaign against the Islamic State group last year. In September, the Iraqi government also announced that it was part of an intelligence-sharing quartet with Russia, Iran and Syria for the purposes of undermining the militant group’s ability to make further battlefield gains.
A third of Iraq and Syria are now part of the self-styled caliphate declared by the Islamic State group last year. U.S.-led coalitions in Iraq and Syria are providing aerial support to allied ground forces in both countries, and they are arming and training Iraqi forces. The U.S. said it is also sending as many as 50 special forces to northern Syria.
The Swedish foreign minister has caused a stir in Jerusalem with statements she said in response to Friday night’s terror attacks in Paris.
In an interview with Swedish television network SVT2T, hours after the attacks on November 13, Margot Wallström said that “to counteract the radicalization we must go back to the situation such as the one in the Middle East of which not the least the Palestinians see that there is no future: we must either accept a desperate situation or resort to violence,” suggesting that the attacks were rooted in the frustration of Muslims in the Middle East.
Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted strongly Monday and released a statement in which it said, “The words of the Swedish foreign minister are shocking in their audacity. The Swedish Minister is systematically biased and one-sided against Israel, demonstrating hostility when she points to the connection between attacks in Paris and difficulties between Israel and the Palestinians.”
“Anyone who engages in a foolish attempt to create a link between the attacks of radical Islam and the difficulties between Israel and the Palestinians is deceiving himself, his people and the international public opinion,” the statement continued.
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely responded to Wallström’s remarks saying, “The Foreign Minister’s words border on anti-Semitism, and the squalid manner in which it links the attacks in France and Israel is no less of a blood libel.”
Wallström condemned the attacks Saturday in an official statement posted to the Swedish Foreign Ministry website.
“Sweden condemns yesterday’s despicable terrorist attacks in Paris. They targeted and killed innocent citizens, and our thoughts go to the victims and their families. These acts of terrorism are an attack on democracy and our open societies,” the statement read.
“They must and will be met with resolve; terrorism must be opposed and those responsible must be called to account. We also need to tackle the underlying causes of terrorism, taking a long-term approach, and to strengthen our efforts against extremism and fanaticism. Together we must stand up for democracy and for humanistic values,” it continued.
It is not the first occasion that Wallström’s words have angered Israeli officials. An October tweet from Wallström about the wave of terror in Israel also drew criticism from Jerusalem.
“Escalating violence in Jerusalem. Attacks against civilians unacceptable. Bring perpetrators to justice. Leaders must act responsibly,” Wallstrom wrote.
Israeli diplomats were unhappy that Wallstrom failed to mention that the victims were Israeli. A diplomatic source in Jerusalem said: “It is most regrettable that the Swedish foreign minister is unwilling to state in a clear and unequivocal way that the terrorists are Palestinian, and that the victims are Israeli. We wish that her messages would be much clearer and correspond to the reality of the situation.”
Relations between Israel and Sweden hit a low point in January when Wallström said that Israel had angered close allies with its harsh response to her country’s decision to recognize a Palestinian state in October last year.
“It is unacceptable how they have been talking about us and everybody else,” the foreign minister said.
“It has not only irritated us, but the Americans and everyone who has anything to do with them right now.”
Wallströn also said in the interview that Sweden supports Israel, Palestine and peace, but was sharply critical of Israel’s policies. “Israel has been extremely aggressive,” she said.
Official Palestinian paper publishes op-ed claiming Israel behind Paris attacks
An opinion piece published Sunday in an official Palestinian Authority daily newspaper blamed Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency for the deadly terror attacks that rocked Paris on Friday night.
The article in the daily al-Hayat al-Jadida paper suggested that Israel played a part in orchestrating the attacks in order to undermine new European moves promoting a two-state solution as well as the labeling of produce from Israeli West Bank settlements.
“It is not a coincidence that human blood was exploded in Paris at the same time that certain European sanctions are beginning to be implemented against settlement products, and while France leads Europe in advising the [UN] Security Council that will implement the two-state solution, Palestine and Israel — which the Israelis see as a warning of sudden danger coming from the direction of Europe, where the Zionist, occupying, settling endeavor was born…” reads the opinion piece.
“The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits. In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its ‘Mossad’ will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world,” it continues.
The op-ed was translated by Palestinian Media Watch, a media monitoring group.

“A woman lays flowers during a minute’s silence in Lille, tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks, on November 16, 2015”
The worst terror attack in French history has stunned the capital, less than 11 months after jihadists struck satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket, killing 17.
France was to observe a minute’s silence at midday (1100 GMT), which the European Union has called on all member states to respect. In the United States, the Stars and Stripes will fly at half-mast at the White House until sunset Thursday.
President Francois Hollande will observe the silence at the Sorbonne University, in recognition of the large toll of young people among the 129 dead. Another 352 were injured, scores of them seriously.
French warplanes pounded Islamic State’s Syrian stronghold Sunday in the nation’s first retaliation against the jihadists.
The raid destroyed an IS command post, a recruitment center, a munitions depot and a “terrorist” training camp in Raqa, the defense ministry said.
The operation was coordinated with US forces by a dozen aircraft which took off from Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, it said.
Hollande has denounced the Paris attacks as an “act of war” and vowed to hit back against IS “without mercy”.
