Revolution Muslim Fails Again Or Did They?
And old friend of Zack Chesser has been arrested, one would think that he was also friends with some other members of Revolution Muslim, the gift that just keeps on giving.
Dept of Justice Press Release.
Nicholas Young, 36, of Fairfax, Virginia, was arrested today on charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization. Young is employed by the Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) as a law enforcement officer.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Dana J. Boente of the Eastern District of Virginia and Assistant Director in Charge Paul M. Abbate of the FBI’s Washington Field Office made the announcement. Young’s initial appearance is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan of the Eastern District of Virginia.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Young has been employed as an MTPD officer since 2003. Law enforcement first interviewed Young in September 2010 in connection with his acquaintance, Zachary Chesser, who had been arrested and subsequently pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Over the next several years, Young allegedly had numerous interactions with undercover law enforcement personnel and an FBI confidential human source (CHS) regarding his knowledge of and interest in terrorism-related activity. Many of these interactions were recorded. Law enforcement also interviewed Young’s family and co-workers. In 2011, Young met with an undercover law enforcement officer, and several of these meetings included another of Young’s acquaintances, Amine El Khalifi, who later pleaded guilty to charges relating to his plan to conduct a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol Building in 2012.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in 2011, Young traveled to Libya once and attempted to travel there a second time. Young told FBI agents that he had been with rebels attempting to overthrow the Muammar Qaddafi regime. Baggage searches revealed that Young traveled with body armor, a kevlar helmet and several other military-style items, according to the allegations.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on about 20 separate occasions in 2014, Young met with the CHS, who posed as a U.S. military reservist of Middle Eastern descent who wanted to travel overseas to join ISIL. During these conversations, Young allegedly advised the CHS on how to evade law enforcement detection by utilizing specific travel methods and advised the CHS to watch out for informants and not discuss his plans with others.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, also in 2014, the CHS led Young to believe that he had successfully left the United States and joined ISIL. In reality, the CHS had no further contact with Young. All further communications between Young and the CHS’s email account were actually communications between Young and FBI undercover personnel posing as the CHS. In June 2015, Young emailed the CHS asking for advice from the CHS’s commanders on how to send money to ISIL. Young said, “[u]nfortunately I have enough flags on my name that I can’t even buy a plane ticket without little alerts ending up in someone’s hands, so I imagine banking transactions are automatically monitored and will flag depending on what is going on.”
In December 2015, the FBI interviewed Young, ostensibly in connection with an investigation into the whereabouts of the CHS, according to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint. Young allegedly said that the CHS had left the United States to go on a vacation tour in Turkey approximately one year ago. In addition, according to the allegations in the complaint, Young said that he knew of no one in the United States or overseas who helped the CHS cross the Turkish border into Syria.
On July 18, 2016, Young allegedly communicated with a person who he believed to be the CHS regarding purchasing gift cards for mobile-messaging accounts that ISIL purportedly uses in recruiting others to join the terrorist organization. According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on July 28, 2016, Young sent 22 gift card codes to the FBI undercover officer posing as the CHS with a message that stated: “Respond to verify receipt . . . may not answer depending on when as this device will be destroyed after all are sent to prevent the data being possibly seen on this end in the case of something unfortunate.” The codes were ultimately redeemed by the FBI for $245, according to court documents.
A criminal complaint is merely an allegation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
If convicted, Young faces a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes. If convicted of any offense, the sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court based on the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
The MTPD initiated this investigation and continues to work collaboratively with the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force on the case. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gordon D. Kromberg and John T. Gibbs of the Eastern District of Virginia and Trial Attorney David P. Cora of the National Security Division.

ISIS Murders Four Kurdish Soldiers in Revenge Video
So ISIS seems a little pissed off about the raid on the prison. Our hearts go out to the Kurds.
A video purportedly from ISIS surfaced online Friday and shows the terrorists beheading four Kurdish Peshmerga fighters in retaliation for the daring raid by U.S.-led coalition forces last week in northern Iraq.
At the end of the 15-minute video, a masked English-speaking man delivers a warning to U.S. President Barack Obama before he executes one of the prisoners, who is wearing an orange jumpsuit.
The three other prisoners are also seen being beheaded at the end of the video and Arabic text appears onscreen. It translates as "Peshmerga soldiers that Americans came down to rescue."
Earlier in the video, ISIS also claims to show the aftermath of the raid during which 70 hostages were rescued by Kurdish, U.S. and Iraqi forces from an ISIS prison in Hawija, in the northern Iraq province of Kirkuk.
Here is the English spoken bu the first killer to Obama. He sounds American to me. But he's not very eloquent, obviously reciting a prepared statement in a halting fashion. Despite his claims of "victory" it seems we made quite the mess for ISIS.
Obama you have learned a new lesson. Six of the soldiers of the Caliphate faced Four Hundred of your children. They killed and injured them by Allah's grace. You are probably surprised by this.This man then beheads the first prisoner as the other three are forced to watch. Its a as gruesome a beheading as I've witnessed.
Oh Crusader, it is the support of Allah.
You did not gain anything, you returned to your bases and with losses and humiliation. Obama you wage war against Allah, he supports us against you. It is the promise of Allah. Allah will never fail in his promise.
Then a warning in Arabic is given to the Kurds and the other three prisoners are beheaded. (screencap and video below the fold)
The video is available here by request.
(I'm not around to approve the requests so if you didn't get it by now, sorry.)
Its not clear if the following strike was before or after the video. But from the damage shown on the ground it may be after.

Feel Good Video of the Day Strike on ISIS Ramadi
Baghdad (AFP) - The international coalition against the Islamic State jihadist group bombed a key jihadist command and supply hub in the area of Ramadi, capital of Iraq's Anbar province, it said Wednesday.Schweeet!
A video of the strike on the football stadium showed a massive secondary explosion at the site.
"The stadium was a key (IS) command and supply hub in the Ramadi region and was being used to store large amounts of homemade explosives, weapons and ammunition," the coalition said in a statement.
"Destroying this hub will significantly disrupt (IS's) ability to conduct operations and resupply their fighters in Ramadi."

ISIS: Yes, We Practice Sex Slavery Just Like Muhammad -- Also, Michelle Obama wouldn't fetch much
Remember, ISIS wrote this. They're proud of it. From ISIS's latest English language magazine, an article titled 'Slave-Girls' or Prostitutes'. Allegedly, written by a female ISIS supporter:
Saby (taking slaves through war) is a great prophetic Sunnah containing many divine wisdoms and religious benefits, regardless of whether or not the people are aware of this. The Sīrah is a witness to our Prophet’s (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) raiding of the kuffār. He would kill their men and enslave their children and women. The raids of the beloved Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) convey this to us....How proud is this ISIS supporter of the practice of slavery? This proud:
The scholars of Sīrah mentioned that the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) took four slave-girls as concubines, two of them being Māriyah al-Qibtiyyah and Rayhānah an-Nadriyyah [Zād al-Ma’ād].
Yes, Allah has opened the lands for His awliyā’, so they entered and dispersed within the lands, killing the fighters of the kuffār, capturing their women, and enslaving their children.Oh, and this isn't some theoretical support for slavery. She has firsthand knowledge of it:
I write this while the letters drip of pride.
Yes, O religions of kufr altogether, we have indeed raided and captured the kāfirah women, and drove them like sheep by the edge of the sword. And glory belongs to Allah, to His Messenger, and the believers, but the hypocrites do not know!
I and those with me at home prostrated to Allah in gratitude on the day the first slave-girl entered our home. Yes, we thanked our Lord for having let us live to the day we saw kufr humiliated and its banner destroyed.And should the Black Flag of Islam fly over the White House, what then of the First Lady? Yes, she went there:
And who knows, maybe Michelle Obama’s price won’t even exceed a third of a dīnār, and a third of a dīnār is too much for her!Wow. Just, wow.

CAGE Unfairly Oppressed Muslim is Jihadi John
Caged Prisoners has always been a front for terrorists, in which bonafide terrorists run around claiming they are oppressed by Islamo-o-phobia.
The problem is that all their "victims" are actually terrorists, no it turn out that the most famous Islamic Butcher in the word is not only a Fan, he's a client.
WAPO: ‘Jihadi John’: Islamic State killer is identified as Londoner Mohammed EmwaziCAGE wasted no time in blaming Jihadi John's butchery on British Security services.
LONDON — The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.
But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.
“I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” said one of Emwazi’s close friends who identified him in an interview with The Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . . I am sure it is him.”
Of course the security services were just oppressing innocents like Michael Adebolajo and Emwazi , this is what drove them to terrorism.
Which is ironic given that it turns out in the end that the security services are right, Anjem Choudary's little group of butchers are terrorists.

ISIS' Do It Yourself Apocalypse
We live in an increasingly secularized world, so it's sometimes difficult to take seriously the deeply held religious beliefs of others. For many of us the idea that the end of times will come with a battle between "Rome" and Islam at the obscure Syrian town of Dabiq is as absurd as the belief that the Mayans had that their human sacrifices could influence future events.There is a copy of Daqib 7 here avaible by request.
But for ISIS, the Dabiq prophecy is deadly serious. Members of ISIS believe that they are the vanguard fighting a religious war, which Allah has determined will be won by the forces of true Islam.
This is the conclusion of an important forthcoming new book about ISIS by terrorism experts J.M. Berger and Jessica Stern who write that ISIS, like many other "violent apocalyptic groups, tend to see themselves as participating in a cosmic war between good and evil, in which moral rules do not apply."

A Father's Wrath
From the Daily Mail:
An Iraqi man has shot and killed seven ISIS militants in an act of revenge for his son who was executed by the terrorist group, local media reports.
Basil Ramadan, said to be in his 60s, used an AK-47 to gun down a group of militants at a checkpoint in Tikrit, a city northwest of Baghdad currently under ISIS control, before he was shot.
Mr Ramadan's son, Ahmed Basil, 18, was one of eight men executed by ISIS in January, accused of infiltrating the organisation and spying for the Iraqi government.
Imagine if every relative of ISIS victims killed even half as many terrorists. ISIS wouldn't have a chance.

ISIS Murders Kenji Goto Joto
ISIS has carried out the Murder Japanese hostage of Kenjo Goto Jogo.
I can confirm this is the case. In the video Jihad John appears, it is his voice, he then speaks about the Grace of Allah, but Kenji was shown no grace. Joto is silent and stoic, a still at the end of the video confirms his death.
Our prayers go out to the people of Japan and to his family.
Evil does abide on this Earth its name is ISIS.
Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.
ISIS seems annoyed that states are not recognizing the power of the group as a true state, the irony of murdering a bound journalist while hiding in a ravine seems to escape them.
The video is also very short and has a number of issues playing outside a web browser. Its fairly high resolution but appears hastily prepared with out many of the post production features. Aside from the reappearance of the al-Furqan label.

Islamic State of Losers Lose Kobane
BEIRUT – Kurdish troops on Monday notched a major symbolic blow to the Islamic State group, taking full control of Kobane after months of battles against ISIS.
Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) units “took full control over the town of Kobane following violent clashes with ISIS that lasted 112 days,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday afternoon.
“YPG units are still combing some houses in the eastern suburbs of the town, and dismantling and detonating [left over] explosive devices,” it added.
SOHR director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that “the Kurds are pursuing some jihadists on the eastern outskirts of Kobane, but there is no more fighting inside now.”

ISIS Murdered Haruna Yukawa
I'm looking this over at the moment. Anyway there was a delay in the release and Kenji Goto Jogo it appears is still alive.
click for larger
At first glance it appears the new video is a hasty release, without the high production value in the previous video. It is a simple audio message over a the above still image.
Our thoughts go out to the People of Japan and to the family of Haruna Yukawa.
Update: In the video, in which Jihadi John is conspicuously absent Kenji Goto Jogo in English says the captors demands have changed. The demand for ransom is dropped and that Mr. Goto will be traded for a single female captive help by the Jordanians.
I'm not sure the spelling of her name or who she is. I will update shortly on that.
I can verify that Haruna Yukawa has been murdered.
Obviously something has seriously went wrong for the al-Furqan Media cell that was running this operation. But the video appears authentic despite the obvious difficulty al-Furqan is having.
Goto, again speaking to his family, said in the purported video released Saturday that Islamic State had changed its ransom demand and no longer wanted money.
"Their demand is easier. They are being fair. They no longer want money. So you don't need to worry about funding terrorists. They are just demanding the release of their imprisoned sister Sajida al-Rishawi," he said.
Sajida al-Rishawi is a female suicide bomber dispatched by al-Qaeda in Iraq to attack a hotel in Jordan in 2005, SITE reported. She survived when her explosive belt failed to detonate.
Al-Rishawi was arrested by Jordanian authorities at the time of the attack on the Radisson SAS hotel in Amman that killed 57 people, many of whom were at a wedding reception.
She was later shown on Jordanian tV confessing to participating in the attack, the BBC reports. Jordanian police said she was the wife of one of three Iraqi male suicide bombers involved in the assault.
"My husband wore one [bomb] belt and I another -- he told me how to use it," she said, explaining that he took one corner of the hotel and she took another.
"There was a wedding in the hotel. There were women and children," she said. "My husband executed the attack. I tried to detonate and it failed. I left. People started running and I started running with them."

ISIS Versus Saudi Arabia
Middle East Eye compares punishments in the Islamic State - which the Obama Administration claims is not Islamic at all - with ultra-Islamic Saudi Arabia.
The Islamic State (IS) and Saudi Arabia prescribe near-identical punishments for a host of crimes, according to documents circulated by the militant group.
IS published a list of crimes and their punishments on 16 December 2014 to serve "as an explanation and as a warning" to those living in territory under their control in large parts of Iraq and Syria.
The document lists hadd crimes, which are considered to be "against the rights of God," and includes fixed punishments for theft, adultery, slander and banditry.
Crimes deemed hadd and their punishments are derived from the Quran and the hadith, the collected teachings and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. However, with the exception of Saudi Arabia, and IS-controlled areas, they are rarely applied.
A comparison chart is below the fold.

Islamic State of Losers Plagued By Problems of Running a State
In stark contrast to earlier reports where IS paves some roads and passed out some of the war booty, IS has run out of booty.
GAZIANTEP, Turkey — The Islamic State’s vaunted exercise in state-building appears to be crumbling as living conditions deteriorate across the territories under its control, exposing the shortcomings of a group that devotes most of its energies to fighting battles and enforcing strict rules.When your only tool is a Koran, everything looks like a neck, but it will be be hard from Islamic State to murder its way out of winter.
Services are collapsing, prices are soaring, and medicines are scarce in towns and cities across the “caliphate” proclaimed in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State, residents say, belying the group’s boasts that it is delivering a model form of governance for Muslims.
Slick Islamic State videos depicting functioning government offices and the distribution of aid do not match the reality of growing deprivation and disorganized, erratic leadership, the residents say. A trumpeted Islamic State currency has not materialized, nor have the passports the group promised. Schools barely function, doctors are few, and disease is on the rise.
In the Syrian city of Raqqa, the group’s self-styled capital, water and electricity are available for no more than three or four hours a day, garbage piles up uncollected, and the city’s poor scavenge for scraps on streets crowded with sellers hawking anything they can find, residents say.Bombs falling from the sly, the gutters running with blood, death, destruction and starvation!
Videos filmed in secret by an activist group show desperate women and children clamoring for handouts of food, while photographs posted on the Internet portray foreign militants eating lavish spreads, a disparity that is starting to stir resentment.
Its Islamic Utopia!

The message of Christmas is not that Christ was born, but he lives and that through him all things are possible.
Even Peace in Syria.
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.It has been said the wages of sin is death.
And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
If this is so the war in Syria and Iraq is a great sin, The wages of ISIS' war are clear to see.

Jordanian Coalition Pilot Downed In Raqqa
Jordanian pilot first lieutenant Mu`adh Yusuf al Kasasbeh was captured today by ISIS terrorists after his plane crashed in Raqqa, Syria. ISIS has claimed to have downed the F16 jet by using a MANPAD they had stolen from Syrian rebels.
The interesting question is why was he flying during the day and was he flying at a low altitude? Bashar Al Assads flying death machines fly much lower every day and ISIS hasn't picked them off. So did they really shoot him down? Time will tell...
Obviously we all know ISIS terrorists enjoy diddling their buddies as well as prisoners but come on this guy just fell from the sky and they're already stripping him down for their pleasure. SAVAGES!
ISIS Loses Hardan Leave Behind Mass Graves
After he fled from this tiny northern Iraqi hamlet four months ago, Hayder Khalef got panicked phone calls from his relatives who had remained behind. They were at that moment being led by Islamic State group gunmen toward a checkpoint on the edge of town.The photographs of the scene are here.
"If you don't hear from us, you'll find our bodies near the checkpoint," Khalef said they told him in the calls.
He is back in his hometown for the first time since, after Iraqi Kurdish fighters last week drove out the extremists holding the village. Khalef and a few other residents who escaped followed the Kurds in, hoping to discover what happened to hundreds of their relatives and neighbors who vanished after the jihadis overran Hardan in early August.
They fear they know where they are: four mounds of recently dug-up earth. The sites have not yet been excavated, but Khalef and others are convinced they are mass graves, possibly holding dozens of dead. From the loose top soil, they and Kurdish fighters pulled out pieces of clothing as an Associated Press reporter watched

ISIS Vows To Take Over The World Even if it Means Killing 500 Million People
Juergen Todenhoefer's journey was a tough one: dangerous, but also eye-opening. The author traveled deep into ISIS territory -- the area they now call their "caliphate" -- visiting Raqqa and Deir Ezzor in Syria, as well as Mosul in Iraq.The fighter goes on to say that Slavery and beheading are good because its part of Islam.
One of the most remarkable episodes of Todenhoefer's trip to the ISIS-controlled region came when he was able to conduct an interview with a German fighter who spoke on behalf of ISIS's leadership.
The man -- clearly unapologetic about the group's transgressions -- vowed there was more to come; he also issued a warning to Europe and the United States.
"So you also want to come to Europe?" Todenhoefer asked him.
"No, we will conquer Europe one day," the man said. "It is not a question of if we will conquer Europe, just a matter of when that will happen. But it is certain ... For us, there is no such thing as borders. There are only front lines.
"Our expansion will be perpetual ... And the Europeans need to know that when we come, it will not be in a nice way. It will be with our weapons. And those who do not convert to Islam or pay the Islamic tax will be killed."
Todenhoefer asked the fighter about their treatment of other religions, especially Shia Muslims.
"What about the 150 million Shia, what if they refuse to convert?" Todenhoefer asked.
"150 million, 200 million or 500 million, it does not matter to us," the fighter answered. "We will kill them all."

Islamic State of Losers Lose Again
Is it just me of is ISIS making a habit of getting its ass kicked lately?Schweet!
BAGHDAD — Kurdish forces, backed by a surge of American airstrikes in recent days, recaptured a large swath of territory from Islamic State militants on Thursday, opening a path from the autonomous Kurdish region to Mount Sinjar in the west, near the Syrian border.Its always nice to start off with a feel good story, don't you think?
The two-day offensive, which involved 8,000 fighters, known as pesh merga, was the largest one to date in the war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, according to Kurdish officials. It was also a successful demonstration of President Obama’s strategy for battling the extremist group: American air power combined with local forces doing the fighting on the ground.
A statement released Thursday night by the office of Masrour Barzani, the head of the Kurdistan Regional Security Council, called the operation “the single biggest military offensive against ISIS, and the most successful.”

ISIS, Qaeda Tie Knot in First Gay Wedding in Self-Proclaimed Islamic Caliphate (bumped/sticky)
Alleged leaked photo of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusrah after wedding vows
(Raqqa, Syria) ISIS and the al Qaeda affiliated al Nusrah Front announced that they had "united forces" today, a well known Arabic euphemism for marriage.
In announcing their nuptials the two groups put to rest the rumor that they had been "shacking up", a major sin in Islam.
"We have not been shacking up," stated an ISIS representative on a well know ask.fm site belonging to the group, "we are legally and lawfully married under the laws of the Islamic State and in the eyes of Allah (swt)."
The on again off again relationship between the two radical Islamist groups had been the source of much fodder for Islamist tabloids. Only a month ago several compromising "selfies" of Jabhat al-Nusra had been leaked on the internet (caution: link NSFW) after that group's phone was hacked. This spurred a Twitter war between supporters of the two groups, with ISIS supporters claiming it was evidence of infidelity while al Qaeda supporters claimed it was not the public's business what al-Nusrah did in the privacy of their own home.
Only two weeks ago the Supreme Shura Council of the Islamic State overruled a decree defining marriage as, "between one man and up to four women." The historic ruling cited a controversial hadith from al-Bukhari claiming that after the slaughter of the Jews of the Banu Qurayza tribe, "the Prophet (saw) took Musa, of the household of the slain, and took him into his own tent and lay down with him."
The hadith is not considered authentic by some scholars, but has been recently revived by Muslims in the LGBT community. The Shura Council's ruling came as a shock to many given the long time public condemnation of marriage equality by the leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
But al-Baghdadi has changed his stance on same-sex marriage in recent weeks, signalling a change in policy that his opponents have called a "flip flop". For his part, al-Bagdhadi has claimed that his position had "evolved" over time as he interacted with his "mujahideen" (ie, holy warriors) on the front line, the majority of whom are gay.
Alleged photo of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State and supporter of gay marriage
"They are just like us," al-Baghdadi stated in a recent proof-of-life audio recording meant to dispute the claim by the US that he had been killed in an air strike, "and they deserve the same dignity, respect, and legal protections afforded to all people in a long-term committed relationship."
As evidence that his position had "evolved", al-Baghdadi personally performed the wedding ceremony.
While no official photos of the ceremony have been released of what one Twitter account claiming to belong to ISIS called, "a private affair." The person calling himself @iammuhammadsbiyatch claims to have snapped the photo with his cell phone. The authenticity of the photo could not be verified by The Jawa Report.
Reaction to the announcement were mixed. On the streets of Lahore, Pakistan, a planned protest by supporters of the Islamist Jamiat Ulema-s-Islam party turned violent. Signs reading, "Jews stop lieing (sic) about Prophet" and "Death to Gay Joo (sic) Bagdhadi" could be seen.
Gay rights supporter in Pakistan
A counter-protest by supporters of the al Qaeda affiliated Tehrek i Talibani called for the immediate implementation of sharia gay marriage and for the death penalty for those that opposed it. One sign read, "Behead those who oppose marriage equality".
In the more moderate Malaysia, one prominent politician, who wished to remain anonymous for security reasons, was more reserved in his judgement. "I have nothing against the gays," he said, "It's not my thing, but to each his own."
"But I just don't get how it works?" he continued, "I mean, physically."
"Unless, maybe, um, there was some kind, I don't know, scissoring action."
When told that ISIS and al-Qaeda were both male, his reaction changed. " You mean that's a .... dude?!?!?" he said, "That's just gross."
ISIS Murders Muslim Revert Abdul Rahman Kassig
So whatever happened to the Islamic concept or repentance and the rule about Murdering one who submits and reverts. It just goes to show you that ISIS are nothing but butchers and snuff porn producers.
Former US Army Ranger – turned Muslim convert – Peter Kassig was allegedly beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) recently, according to several media outlets. Apparently 18 Syrian Air Force pilots were also beheaded, although the numbers vary from 18 to 20. However, a 19 min, 55 sec video has been posted on the topic:The video is very graphic as ISIS is apparently angry about the recent strikes and in a vain attempt to terrorize and intimidate those who would stand against them the film descends into a twisted and depraved snuff pron horror film with enhanced sound and uncut flashes of beheading in progress.
The man in the black is an English-speaking jihadist assessed to be the infamous “Jihad John” grabbing a knife along with the other executioners.
The pilots are all lined up with their executioners behind them.
Jihad John speaks in a British accent starting at the 10:37 where he specifically calls out President Obama (referring to him as “The Dog of War”), stating that “today the Islamic State kills the Soldiers of Bashar, and tomorrow we will be slaughtering your Soldiers.” He also goes on to tell President Obama that jihadists will begin to also slaughter Americans in their own streets in their own land (the US homeland).
There can be no doubt that the civilized world must stand against this pure evil and snuff out ISIS utterly.

Red on Red Jabhat al-Nusra vs ISIS Deir el-Zour
he fighting has escalated between Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and their allies on the one hand, and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on the other, as it reached an unprecedented climax in the past few days, both in terms of expansion and violence.ISIS for its part is accusing anyone who fights against them as being FSA or in bed with their enemies.
he battlefields expanded from the countryside of Hassakeh, to the countryside of Deir el-Zour and Maadan, which is between Raqqa and Deir el-Zour. They also covered the town of Jarablos, in the countryside of Aleppo, and the countryside of Latakia. Many killings, assassinations, suicide bombings, executions and mutilations took place during the battles, during which the injured sometimes bled to death without being treated.
One of the probable reasons behind that is that Jabhat al-Nusra has changed its view on the legitimacy of the fighting. While it once considered this fighting a form of “sedition” that must be halted and that it shouldn’t join, after ISIS attacked and gained control of its headquarters and positions in Deir el-Zour last week, Jabhat al-Nusra issued an intense speech that was more a declaration of war. Jabhat al-Nusra was not expected to stand idly by while the fighting reached the city of Deir el-Zour, which the organization considers its capital, particularly after its losses in Raqqa, Hassakeh, and Aleppo. If Deir el-Zour is lost, nothing else would be left for Jabhat al-Nusra.
Jabhat al-Nusra has succeeded in regaining control over all its headquarters and positions which were seized by ISIS last week, most importantly the Koniko oil field. It also took control over the al-Jafra field, and the industrial area. Following the counteroffensive launched by Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and some of the Free Syrian Army’s factions, ISIS was forced to withdraw all of its members from the countryside of Deir el-Zour and regroup in al-Shaddadi city in the countryside of Hassakeh. Local sources said that ISIS no longer has any presence in the countryside of Deir el-Zour, except for the salt mine in al-Tabani town, where its members are under siege.
The hash for Deir el-Zour for becoming very active with reports of fighting and murders.

Awesome: Foreign Fighter Pouring into Syria "Faster than Ever" (Guest Post by R. Shackleford)
Hi, it's me again, Rusty Shackleford. You may remember me as the guy in the comments who once kicked Greyrooster in the balls.
I saw this report and was so spookified that I thought I'd pass it on:
“The rate of travel into Syria [by foreign fighters] is greater than we saw into Afghanistan prior to 9/11,” Randy Blake, a senior strategic advisor in the U.S. Office of Director of National Intelligence, said Tuesday during a panel at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in Orlando, Florida. “It’s greater than anything we’ve seen into Afghanistan, into Yemen, into Somalia, into Iraq, or anything that we’ve seen in the last 10-year period.”It's a good thing that we have a competent administration in the White House, one that doesn't craft it's security & counterterror policies based on polling numbers. If that were the case, this would be really really scary.
Blake said the number of Westerners heading to Syria to fight has risen so rapidly in recent weeks that a new law enforcement video shown at the four-day event is already out of date.
“The video said there are somewhere around 12,000 foreign fighters in Syria. We would update that number to about 16,000 foreign fighters who have traveled to Syria from over 80 countries,” Blake said, adding that roughly 2,000 of those fighters hail from Western countries -- including "at least 500 from the U.K, 700 from France, 400 from Germany, and more than 100 Americans [who] have traveled, or tried to travel into Syria.”
Dozens of Former Gitmo Detainees Fighting in Syria (Guest Post by Rusty Shackleford)
Hi, I'm Rusty Shackleford. I post here occasionally when Howie lets me.
So, on to news so scary that it's an appropriate way to usher in Halloween:
Of the 620 detainees released from Guantanamo Bay, 180 have returned or are suspected to have returned to the battlefield.Want a really scary Halloween costume? Dress up like an ISIS terrorist.
Of those 180, sources say 20 to 30 have either joined ISIS or other militants groups in Syria, or are participating with these groups from outside countries. Officials say most of those 20 to 30 are operating inside Syria.

Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck
AUSTRALIA’S most senior Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of Kobane, his friends have claimed.See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.
Authorities were working last night to verify reports that Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Australians. The former drug-abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.
Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.
Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Baryalei’s demise were true.
“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an online interview with The Australian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”
You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

Yet Another Terrorist Attack in Canada (update Two Shooters One Dead Another in Custody)
It appears that ISIS appeals for Muslims to attack nations that are part of the coalition are being heeded resulting in yet another attack.
A uniformed Canadian soldier has been shot at the War Memorial in Ottawa, and gunfire has also broken out inside the Parliament buildingsA terrorist and recent revert to Islam was killed when using his car as a weapon earlier this week.
CPR was performed on the soldier and he has been transported to hospital by ambulance.
Police have told reporters that the suspect, reportedly carrying a "large weapon," possibly a shotgun or rifle, is still on the loose, and the parliament buildings are on lockdown. Prime Minister is safe and "off the hill."
The situation is still developing. Updates will follow.
I'll bet you $100 that the perpetrator of this attack was on Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau's now defunct Facebook page friends list.
Which is why I feel Facebook removed Ahmad's page. So the public can't see all his other terrorist pals.
We'll update when we know more about today's um, incident.
Update: More here from CBCNews:
An arrest has been made after at least two people were shot in a hail of gunfire on Parliament Hill and the nearby cenotaph.
The victim appears to be a soldier. Several people were seen performing CPR.
Another body is reported to be on the ground just outside the Library of Parliament.
Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino told QMI Agency at least one of the shooters was shot and killed inside the building.
Two men were seen jumping from a Toyota Corolla, followed by dozens of shots.
The car now sits empty outside Centre Block. It has no licence plates.
Journalists reported police were trying to keep them away from the scene. Those inside Parliament reported they were told to stay inside rooms with the door locked.
Update IV: Coincidence or motive?
It appears there was only one shooter despite earlier reports of two. ISIS has claimed the attack.
Update 10/23/2014 06:00 CDT: Robert Stacy McCain has more on Michael Zehaf-Bibeau
We learn that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the terrorist killed in his attack Thursday on the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa, was both mentally ill and a convert to Islam:Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board. The two were divorced in 1999. . . .So we don’t know, and may never know, exactly how it was that Zehaf-Bibeau went from crazy Muslim to terrorist. Rather than focus on the details of that, however, let’s look at the general pattern in the context of history. What you find about killers like this is that the misfit or mental case has both real-life problems and an extremist ideology. Think about Lee Harvey Oswald who, like Zehaf-Bibeau, was the product of a broken home and, like Zehaf-Bibeau, adopted the ideology of a foreign enemy. Whereas the Canadian-born Zehaf-Bibeau became a Muslim in the 21st century, the American-born Oswald became a Marxist at a time when the Soviet Union was America’s greatest enemy.
Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau grew up in Eastern Canada, including Ottawa and Montreal, and had spent time in Libya before moving to Western Canada to become a miner and labourer, according to friend Dave Bathurst.
...At the Burnaby mosque, Mr. Bathurst said his friend’s “erratic” behaviour — he did not elaborate — caused frictions with the elders at the house of worship, who asked him to stop attending prayers. At that time, Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was living in a barely furnished single-room apartment.
Mr. Bathurst said he recalls his friend being arrested at the mosque a few years ago after bizarrely calling police to tell them about a crime he had committed many years before.
What causes some people to adopt the ideology of hostile foreign powers? They are misfits and malcontents who are alienated from their own national society, hostile to the dominant culture. By identifying with an extremist ideology, this type of warped personality seeks a kind of empowerment that enables them to enact their fantasy of revenge on the society that rejects the misfit.

Breaking Two Canadian Soldiers Run Down in Apparent Domestic Terror Attack (Update: Radicalized Muslim Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau Killed By Police in Attack) (Update II: One of The Canadian Soldiers Injured in Terrorist Attack Dies of His Injuries)
al-Qaeda and ISIS has been asking for acts like this in various online magazines and videos.
Toronto StarThe good news is whomever did it is Dead Jim!MONTREAL—The suspect in a hit-and-run that injured two Canadian soldiers in Quebec — an incident identified as a possible terror attack — is fighting for his life in hospital after being shot several times by police.
The shocking incident, which occurred at about noon Monday in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, also sent the two Canadian Armed Forces personnel to hospital with one fighting for his life and the other having suffered minor injuries, according to the Quebec provincial police.
The two soldiers were reportedly walking through the parking lot of a shopping centre located less than three kilometres from the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, the French-language university run by the Department of National Defence, when they were run down by a driver.
A police chase ensued and the car drove into a ditch after the driver lost control of the vehicle, police said.
Witnesses who spoke with the TVA network Monday afternoon said they saw a man emerge from the flipped vehicle that was lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The man had his hands in the air and was walking toward police when at least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The witnesses said they heard up to seven gunshots.So we're not really sure of the motive, the knife may have been the reason officers opened fire. Normally I might be skeptical of trigger happy police but in this case, meh.
TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the two injured pedestrians were members of the military but said it was too early in the investigation to comment on suggestions it may have been a terror attack.We'll know more about motive once the dead perp is identified, it would however fit with recent threats against any nation who opposes ISIS.
Hat Tip: Life Freedom Family.
Update: Confirmed stiff was a terrorist.
The driver of a car who rammed two Canadian Forces members near Montreal before being shot dead by police was known to counter-terrorism authorities who believed he had become radicalized, the RCMP said on Monday as they continued to investigate the possible terrorist attack.He called himself Ahmad LeConverti on Facebook.
“This individual was known to federal authorities including our Integrated National Security Investigations team in Montreal who along with other authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized,’’ the RCMP said in a statement. The force declined further comment.
The 25-year-old, known as Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, allegedly hit two members of the Canadian Forces as they were walking in a strip mall just outside St-Jean-sur-Richelieu at about 11:30 a.m. Police chased the man more than four kilometres until his car flipped into a ditch.
The man then exited his car, allegedly holding a knife, and police opened fire, seriously injuring him, said Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Joyce Kemp. He was transported to hospital, but police later confirmed he had died.
The suggestion the incident was an act of terrorism was first raised in the House of Commons by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said he was aware of the “extremely troubling” reports and that authorities were investigating.
From what I can tell he was a member of an Anti American Facebook group called United Slaves of America.
Our prayers go out to the family and to all of Canada.
Also my apologies that your loss for standing with America against ISIS has gotten little or no notice in the American press.
I didn't hear it on NPR, I don't see it on CNN, I don't see it on ABC, CBS. no not even FOXNEWS.

Very dead Mr. Howie.
Islamic State of Losers Run From Kobani!
Islamic State fighters have been driven out of Kobani, the Kurdish town that straddles the Syrian-Turkish border, after weeks of heavy fighting, according to Kurdish sources speaking to RT.
A Kurdish commander said that ISIS retreated overnight – withdrawing by 2 km east and 9 km west.
The Kurds are now clearing the city. The Islamists have left behind suicide bombers hiding in the ruins of the various buildings in the city.
"We can still hear sporadic gunfire and explosions coming from Kobani," RT's Murad Gazdiev reports from the Turkish-Syrian border.
However, a victory announcement from the Kurdish fighters is yet to be made because the whole of the city has not been secured.

Obama's Coalition Partner Bombs Kurds
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
(Reuters) - War against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq threatened on Tuesday to unravel the delicate peace in neighbouring Turkey after the Turkish air force bombed Kurdish fighters furious over Ankara's refusal to help protect their kin in Syria.
Turkey's banned PKK Kurdish militant group accused Ankara of violating a two-year-old cease-fire with the air strikes, on the eve of a deadline set by the group's jailed leader to salvage a peace process aimed at halting a three-decades-long insurgency.
At least 35 people were killed in riots last week when members of Turkey's 15-million-strong Kurdish minority rose up in anger at the government for refusing to help defend the Syrian border town of Kobani from an Islamic State assault.

ISIS Uses Mustard Against Kurds?
Of course if Assad used mustard that would be some sort of red line, but ISIS uses mustard and no boots on the ground.
Gloria Center: The fate of Kobani city now hangs in the balance, as around 9000 fighters of the Islamic State organization close in on the Kurdish held area. The current IS assault on the Kobani enclave was not the first attempt by the jihadis to destroy the Kurdish-controlled area.Hat Tip: @rumrot.
The Kobani enclave, most of which is now in the hands of the IS, at one time extended to Tel Abyad in the east, and Jarabulus in the west. It constituted a major hindrance to the desire of the jihadis to maintain free passage for their fighters from Raqqa city up to the Turkish border and westwards towards the front lines in Aleppo province. IS has therefore long sought to destroy it.
Prior to the current campaign, the most serious (but unsuccessful) attempt to conquer Kobani came in July 2014, shortly following the dramatic IS advance into Iraq.
It was during this assault on Kobani that evidence emerged which appeared to point to the use by the Islamic State on at least one occasion of some kind of chemical agent against the Kurdish fighters of the YPG (Peoples’ Protection Units).
The July offensive commenced on July 2nd. According to Kurdish activists, the use of the chemical agent took place on July 12th, in the village of Avdiko, in the eastern part of the Kobani enclave (now in IS hands.) [i]
Nisan Ahmed, health minister of the Kurdish authority in Kobani, established a medical team to examine the incident. According to Ahmed, the bodies of three Kurdish fighters showed no signs of damage from bullets. Rather “burns and white spots on the bodies of the dead indicated the use of chemicals, which led to death without any visible wounds or external bleeding.” [ii]

ISIS Claim That it Had Taken Kobane Seems Premature
Last night ISIS began using a hash saying it was in total control of Kobane Syria. The hash was quickly polluted. (looks innocent) but it seemed clear that Kobane was about to fall.
Today somehow, by the skin of their teeth the Kurds have held out yet another day.
ISIS apparently suffered heavy losses in urban fighting with YPG and PKK.
ISIS-fighter: "b. We lost some of our brothers in the fighting. c. Reinforcements on way from Raqqa to #Kobane." 2/2— Harald Doornbos (@HaraldDoornbos) October 9, 2014
The problem now for ISIS is that any large movement of reinforcements from Raqqa and other areas will be sitting ducks for US air power.
The problem for the Kurds is resupply as well. If they can get resupplied and ISIS can't bring in forces the tide may turn against ISIS. Handing them a very costly and humiliating defeat.
Lets pray for the Kurds and for ISIS defeat. The outcome is by no means certain. But Kurdish bravery and a little American air power have proven to be a bit more that ISIS and its supporters expected.
Now is ISIS stubborn enough to send even move forces into the meat grinder? We sure hope so.

American ISIS Member Wanted by FBI Makes Fresh Appearance in Video
Update: I think that particular clip of him is from a previous video, but its significant in that ISIS media support or whatever seems to be rubbing it in a bit.
And is it just me or does that video seem kind of in the NORKish style.
