[Securing the United States from terrorist attack will be the focus of the upcoming America’s Truth Forum symposium, ‘Understanding the Threat of Radical Islamist Terrorism,’ taking place in Las Vegas this November 10th and 11th. Dr. Harvey Kushner, Dr. Paul Williams and Hamid Mir will be participating at this event. Go to for more details or contact Jeffrey Epstein at (866) 709-3474.]

Just recently, an al-Qaeda field commander in Afghanistan called for Muslims to leave the U.S., particularly the cities of Washington and New York. Some reports suspect that this call is a warning about a potential nuclear attack on the U.S.

Does Al Qaeda have nuclear capability? If not, is it on the verge of acquiring it? What dangers do we face in this context? Is a jihadist WMD attack on U.S. territory an inevitability? What can we do to prevent this horror?

To discuss this issue with us today, Frontpage Symposium has assembled a distinguished panel of experts. Our guests are:

David Dastych, international journalist for over 40 years, now operating his own media agency in Poland. A former Polish covert intelligence agent, he joined the CIA in South Vietnam (1973-1987). Jailed in Poland for his work against the USSR, the Warsaw Pact and communist interests (1987-1990), he was given an eight 8 years' sentence, but communism collapsed in 1989 and he was released. He monitored illegal nuclear trades for an Israeli organization from 1992-1994.

Hamid Mir, a Pakistani journalist who has more than 18 years experience in covering conflicts and wars in Afghanistan, Kashmir, Bosnia, Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Iraq and Lebanon. He has interviewed Osama bin Laden three times. He is an expert on Al Qaeda's nuclear ambitions and has travelled to Russia, Uzbekistan, Iran and Syria in his research work. He is currently working with Geo TV in Islamabad and writing for Jang Group of Newspapers.

Kushner is a contributing editor for He is the author of many books on terrorism, including the award-winning Encyclopaedia of Terrorism and the widely quoted Holy War on the Home Front: The Secret Islamic Terror Network in the United States.



How To Survive A Nuclear Attack:

With the increased threat of terrorist attacks coupled with the advancement of technology, the prospect of a nuclear attack is becoming a more realistic and frightening prospect to millions of people around the world. Many more people have therefore started to formulate plans and procedures to protect themselves and their families in the event that there is an attack.

It is important for everyone to be prepared for a nuclear attack, however unlikely that prospect might seem. The simple fact of the matter is that nobody knows what dangers lurk around the corner, and if there is an attack you need to know what to do to minimise on the risks. The government and official agencies have their own procedures in the case of emergencies such as this; however, it will be down to each person to know what to do and to help themselves and one another.

You need to consider what you would do immediately upon the explosion as well as afterwards. The effects from a nuclear blast can linger for a very long time, and so you will need to ensure that you are prepared for the long term as well as the short. Knowing what to do in the event of a nuclear explosion could save the lives of you and your loved ones.

The initial explosion

Your first concern will be to protect yourselves from the initial explosion. The blast from a nuclear explosion can cause injury and death, and the nearer you are to the blast the higher the risk. You will need to shield yourself and your family from the force of the explosion as well as from the heat and radiation that is being emitted. There are a number of places that you can use to shelter in such as a basement, in the car or under furniture. If you are actually out and about, you should seek shelter in a ditch or behind a hill. It is important to keep the time that you are exposed to the dangers of a blast to a minimum, so you should look for appropriate shelter as quickly as possible.

After the blast

Once the initial explosion is over you will need to be prepared for nuclear fallout, where the wind carries the radioactive materials through the air. This means that very large areas could become contaminated and you will need to plan for this. You will need to find shelter that is as far as possible from the blast and also look for shelter that is upwind from the blast. You may need to stay away for a long period of time depending on the extent and severity of the contamination.

It is important to have some sort of fallout shelter in mind as this is what will protect you against the hazards of contamination. You should ensure that the shelter that you have in mind also has food and water that is uncontaminated (such as bottled water and tins of food that will last for a while).

How To Survive A Nuclear Attack On A Major City :

The threat of nuclear warfare has become an increasing worry to many people over recent years, and those living in the world’s major cities have particular cause to worry. As has been proven by many past terrorist attacks, including the September 11 th catastrophe in New York City, prosperous and major cities are often a prime target for all manner of attacks.

There are some important basic guidelines that need to be followed in the event of a nuclear attack wherever you live. However, if you are in a major city then you need to consider some additional points. Firstly, you should consider your location. If you live close to a place that could be considered a primary target (e.g. a government building) then a shelter is unlikely to protect you against the blast of an attack because you will be too close. You should therefore make plans for evacuation and you need to ensure that you find out what type of warning system the city operates in order to ensure that you can evacuate as soon as is necessary.

You will also need to find out where you can go – perhaps to a friend or relation or maybe to a communal shelter within the city. Again, you should check whether there are any buildings which officials plan to use as makeshift shelters in the event of an emergency.

If you do not live all that close to a primary target but you still live in a major city, then you should consider a shelter or at least a room that you can use as a shelter. Many major cities consist of tall apartment blocks, which mean that you will not have a basement of your own to use as a shelter. In this case you should speak to the building manager for advice on which room should be designated as a shelter should the need arise.

If you do have your own home in the city rather than an apartment in a block then you may find that you will need to take shelter there for a while following a nuclear attack. You should never assume that you will be evacuated – the sheer number of people living and working in the city could mean that the streets become too jammed to effectively evacuate. And if you are going to be holed up in a shelter within your home for a while you will need to ensure that you have adequate stocks of basic survival products such as sealed water bottles, tinned food, first aid, medication and blankets for warmth.

If you are out and about in the city when a nuclear attack occurs, you should literally dive for cover and do not look up at the blast as this could blind you. Find a ditch, run to the nearest building – anywhere that you might be able to find shelter as low down as possible. If you are in a car, you should wind down the windows to avoid the possible injury from breaking glass and get down on to the floor of the vehicle, shielding your face and eyes at all times.

Nobody is guaranteed to survive a nuclear attack but it is important for everyone to know the basics of what to do should the unthinkable occur. Some simple guidelines could help to save your life and the lives of your family and loved ones.
