– EX-GUANTANAMO INMATE IS HELD IN ISRAEL
An Al Qaeda terrorist with roots in Global Jihad, Samer Abdellatif al-Barak , has been held in Israel for the past three years under administrative detention, it emerged on Sunday 11/17/2013.
The terrorist, named as Samer Abdellatif al-Barak and a Kuwaiti born of Palestinian origin from the town of Kalkilya in nowadays Palestinian Authority, has been held in Israel since 2010. The defense establishment is requesting a six month extension of his detention, which will expire in the coming days. Barak was apparently jailed previously in Jordan and in the USA.
A Justice Ministry spokesman issued what it called an initial statement, confirming that it had submitted a response on Sunday to the High Court regarding a petition over an administrative detention case. The details from the ministry identify Samer al-Barak as a member of al-Qaeda, with a great deal of experience in non-conventional weapons, in particular biological weapons.
The release of the prisoner, the state says, would be a point of no return for the establishment of a significant Global Jihad infrastructure in the region. The response identifies Samer Abdellatif al-Barak as a resident of the region, who was born in 1974. It says that the man left the region in 1997 to study microbiology in Pakistan.
Samer al-Barak then purportedly went to Afghanistan in 1998 for military training, and even apparently persuaded others from the region to do the same. This was, the state says, with the intention of returning to the region to train others. The state’s response claims that the man was recruited by al-Qaida in 2001, by the organization’s current leader, Dr. Ayman Al Zawahiri.
Furthermore, the state says, the Samer al-Barak was involved in planning terrorist attacks against Israelis and Jews in Jordan throughout 2001. He agreed to train Palestinian terrorists in the production of poisons, in order to carry out attacks against Israelis.
