COMMENT: In a previous post, we set forth analysis of a rash of wild fires as possible vehicles of jihadist economic warfare against the West. In that context, we stressed the possibility that jihadist/Muslim Brotherhood forest fire jihad might be an extension of German/Underground economic warfare.

With a number of wildfires burning in the West, including a particularly devastating fire in Yosemite National Park in California, we revisit that topic.

Author, journalist and editor William B. Scott discussed the topic of economic warfare and forest fires in a panel discussion earlier this month (August of 2013.) (See video and text excerpts below.)

 With the Yosemite fire doing serious economic damage to the Bay Area and California and with the worst of the fire season yet to come, this is a consideration to be investigated very, very seriously.

Is the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates exacting revenge for the perceived U.S. complicity in the ouster of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt?

“Yosemite Fire Poses ‘Every Challenge there Can Be'” [CBS, AP]; Yahoo News; 8/25/2013.

EXCERPT: The fire has moved northeast away from Groveland, where smoke gave away to blue skies Sunday. But at Tuolumne City’s Black Oak Casino in Tuolumne City, the slot machines were quiet as emergency workers took over nearly all of the resort’s 148 hotel rooms.

“The casino is empty,” said casino employee Jessie Dean, who left her four children at relatives’ homes in the Central Valley. “Technically, the casino is open, but there’s nobody there.”

Hundreds of firefighters were deployed Sunday to protect Tuolumne City and other communities in the path of the Rim Fire. Eight fire trucks and four bulldozers were deployed near Bunney’s ranch on the west side of Mount Baldy, where two years of drought have created tinder-dry conditions.

“Winds are increasing, so it’s going to be very challenging,” said Bjorn Frederickson, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service.

The fire continues burning in the remote wilderness area of Yosemite, but park spokesman Tom Medena said it’s edging closer to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, the source of San Francisco’s famously pure drinking water.

Despite ash falling like snowflakes on the reservoir and a thick haze of smoke limiting visibility to 100 feet, the quality of the water piped to the city 150 miles away is still good, say officials with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The city’s hydroelectric power generated by the system has been interrupted by the fire, forcing the utility to spend $600,000 buying power on the open market. . . .

. . . . The high winds and movement of the fire from bone-dry brush on the ground to 100-foot oak and pine treetops have created dire conditions.

“A crown fire is much more difficult to fight,” said Daniel Berlant of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “Our firefighters are on the ground having to spray up.”

The blaze sweeping across steep, rugged river canyons quickly has become one of the biggest in California history, thanks in part to extremely dry conditions caused by a lack of snow and rainfall this year. Investigators are trying to determine how the fire started Aug. 17, days before lightning storms swept through the region and sparked other, smaller blazes. . . .

  1. Right on the money. Thanks for sharing that conference. Jihadists never run out of ideas when it is time to destroy our civilization. They won’t stop at anything to achieve that.

  2. There are cameras every block in the citys surveiling every move. Why not set secret camera sites around high probable target areas?
