Nearly 20 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the U.S. and Philippine security forces foiled a 9\11 style terror attack against United States. The Philippine security forces have arrested Cholo Abdi Abdullah, a Kenyan member of Al Shabaab, in Iba, Zambales in Philippines, on July 1, 2019 on local charges. Abdullah was transferred on December 15, 2020, to U.S. custody on charges that he conspired to hijack an aircraft and crash it into a tall building in the U.S.[1]

On January 5, 2021, Al-Shabaab’s leader, Abu Ubaydah urged his followers to step up attacks against American and Israeli targets and also called for attacks on France for its “crimes” against the honor of the prophet Muhammad. Abu Ubaydah marked the anniversary of the terrorist group’s attack on Camp Simba in Kenya, claiming it was revenge for alleged U.S. crimes against the Muslims of Somalia. He added that it was also part of a series of attacks under the slogan, “Jerusalem will never be Judaized “, launched by Al-Qaeda in response to the Trump administration’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to the city of Jerusalem.[2] Cholo Abdi Abdullah’s plot was allegedly part of the operation “Jerusalem will never be Judaized,” which was launched in 2019.

Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said:” Thanks to the outstanding investigative work of the New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the FBI’s global partnerships with law enforcement agencies around the world, Abdullah’s plot was detected before he could achieve his deadly aspirations, and now he faces federal terrorism charges in a U.S. court.

Hard work

Success needs hard work. Don’t listen to these ‘get rich quick’ schemes. You need to build your character and work hard on yourself and your business to achieve greatness. Work hard and work smart. Do the right things and do them in the right way. Don’t procrastinate. Take bold actions. Work long hours and craft your legacy.

Learning from failure

Successful people do not see failures as failures. They see them as important learning lessons. Lessons that are capable of giving them insights to prevent such mistakes from happening again. By adopting this mindset of turning each failure into a learning lesson or opportunity, you can never fail until you yourself quit.
