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."

Armed Women Repel Boko Haram Attack
Mothers Against Islamic Slavery
(Hat Tip: TROP)
Thank goodness they weren't victims of the gun control lobby. Had it been up to Moms Demand Action, all of these women and their daughters would be dead or enslaved. But because they were armed, they were able to fight back:
Several Nigerian media outlets have been reporting on local women in the villages of Attagara and Kawuri in Borno State who recently disarmed nearly a dozen Boko Haram terrorists. The notorious pseudo-Islamic terror groups tried to attack the Attagara and Kawuri communities over the weekend but the insurgents were instantly repelled by a group of armed women.
Bless these women.

French Terrorists Liked Kiddie Porn
Paris authorities found kiddie porn on the computers of two of the Paris Islamist killers.If you think this is out of the ordinary for people claiming to be acting in the interest of Allah. Its not.IBT: As French authorities continue their hunt for possible accomplices of the Islamist extremist gunmen who killed 17 people over three days in Paris last week, it has emerged two of the attackers were found in possession of paedo-pornographic material during an earlier anti-terrorism investigation.
In 2010, a police search of the computers of Cherif Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly revealed traces of child porn images the two men had stored and later erased, French media reported.
The two were under investigation for their alleged role in the botched attempt to free from prison Smain Ait Ali Belkacem, a jihadi serving a life sentence for a 1995 metro station bombing in Paris.
Detectives found five child porn photos on Coulibaly’s laptop and another 37 on Kouachi’s PC. Kouachi’s stash included sickening pictures of young boys and girls involved in sexual acts with adults, Le Canard Enchaîné newspaper reported.
The findings were deemed as unrelated to the anti-terrorism probe and thus not investigated further.
The Taliban have NO HONOR.

ISIS Uses German Jihadi in Last Desperate Attempt to Hold Kobane (Update: Pesh Prematurely Detonate Truck Bomb)
I'm not so sure they are even really think they can take Kobane, they just want to kill as many people in the loss as possible. Even their own fighters.
See him go boom. Note they wait for the B1-B to go off station before attempting the bombing. Which is pretty danged huge.
Anyway it was a futile suicide.
Here a video of the bomb, the Kurds set off the truck with machine gun fire. Although the explosion was large they were unhurt.
ISIS Chief Executioner Found Beheaded
It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!
In a grotesque twist of the saying "live by the sword, die by the sword", an Islamic State executioner in Syria who carried out beheadings for the jihadist group has been found with his head cut off.
The body of the Egyptian man, known to be the deputy emir of the feared al-Hesbah (or Hisbah) force in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor, was recovered near a power plant in al-Mayadeen city, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The corpse showed signs of torture and carried the message "This is evil, you Sheikh" written on it. The severed head also had a cigarette in its mouth. It is unclear who carried out the decapitation but the message was obvious.
It would be sweet irony if this turns out to be "Jihadi John," but sources seem to indicate this loser was Egyptian.

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!

A good primer on Iraqi insurgent groups such as al-Qaeda in the Land of Two Rivers, Ansar al-Islam/Sunnah and the Mujahideen Sura Council and how they have combined to create Islamic State or ISIS.
While the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) was only recently established, multiple iterations of the group have been documented since 2001, when the purported forefather Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi joined forces with al-Qa’ida.1 According to reports, Zarqawi cited disillusionment with US intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq as his reasons for pledging allegiance to Osama bin Laden and establishing al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI)2 in 2004. From 2004 to 2006, AQI launched a number of attacks including multiple beheadings of American citizens.3Many long time Jawa Report readers will recognize many of the groups.
Following Zarqawi’s death by US airstrike in 2006,4 second-in-command Abu Ayyub al-Masri assumed leadership of the group and announced the formation of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI)5 to politicize AQI’s activities, according to The National Counterterrorism Center. Although ISI (often referred to as AQI) was largely degraded by a US counterterrorism campaign from 2006 to 2011,6 the Sunni group managed to carry out various acts of sectarian violence, shown by events coded in red.
Recognizing an opportunity for further recruitment and mobilization amid the Syrian uprising, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who replaced al-Masri after his death, joined forces with Syrian Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra in 2013,7 reports claim. The new alliance was named the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and has been largely responsible for the 2014 attacks and land grabs in both Iraq and Syria. In June 2014, ISIS announced the establishment of a “caliphate” and renamed itself the Islamic State.
One thing for certain there was no shortage of insurgent groups in Iraq. Many can be found in our archives. But this is a good general overview of them, especially the ones related to al-Qaeda and the former Baathist regime that have combined to form IS or ISIS.
The way I like to think of ISIS is this, its the Saddam method of governance, a fascist kill all those who oppose you wrapped in Islamic Salafist kill all who oppose you rhetoric.
I find that while early al-Qaeda was quite religiously motivated and saw themselves as pious Muslims, IS is much more pragmatic. It is first about its own power in the vein of Saddam's Iraq, Islam being used as the justification and for propaganda purposes. But the power of IS taking precedence over strict adherence to the core ideology.
For instance, under Islam killing one innocent is as if you killed all mankind, ISIS kind of turns this around to say, you can kill all humanity, even the innocent, so long as the end result is IS caliphate.

Islamic State of Losers Surrounded at Sinjar
Kurdish authorities say their Peshmerga forces have taken control of a "large area" of the Iraqi town of Sinjar from Islamic State militants.ISIS supporters are spinning and spamming desperately.
Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani claimed large Peshmerga advances during a visit to nearby Mount Sinjar.
The town, near the Syrian border has been controlled by Islamic State (IS) militants since August.
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters backed by US-led air strikes launched a counter-offensive in the area last week.
IS controls a swathe of Iraq and Syria, where it has declared a caliphate.
The US said it launched 13 air strikes in Iraq on Sunday, four of which were on IS targets near Sinjar.
The US, Iraq and other Western and Arab countries have formed a coalition against the militant group and began air strikes in August.
So since when was being surrounded and waiting to die a victory? What you're fighting with the Islamic State of Losers.

ShamiWitness Claims Gladiator Status!
Biswas is enjoying his stay in close quarters with all the sweaty unwashed gladiators and has elected to stay rather than go back to living with Mommy.
BENGALURU: "I'm a soldier and messenger. I don't regret what I've done," Mehdi Masroor Biswas, 24, told an advocate as a posse of policemen escorted him out of court hall 49, Civil Court Complex, Bengaluru, on Thursday.Isn't that special?
Mehdi, arrested for operating a pro-ISIS Twitter handle, was remanded to 15 days in police custody by special judge Somaraju. One of the advocates asked Mehdi outside the courtroom, "Why did you do this, man?" Mehdi replied he had no regrets.
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.”

Shami I Was Hacked!
Yum yeah stuff.
Mehdi’s father, Dr Mekail Biswas, a retired West Bengal government employee has also stated that his son is innocent and his account was hacked by some “enemy”.Shami later confessed. His detention was supposed to end today but there is no word on that.
BENGALURU: At least one lakh replies to the tweets of Mehdi Masroor Biswas, 24, who has been arrested for running a pro-ISIS Twitter handle, are being scoured by the city police.Today there are reports that India has detained three persons in connection to the investigation. There have also been statements denying anyone was detained.
"We are also after the credentials of 17,700 followers of @ShamiWitness Twitter handle run by Mehdi. We will analyze their credentials and check whether these followers have anything to do with ISIS or any other jihadi outfits. We are sure some of them are from within the country and some may be tweeting subversive messages to overseas individuals. We want to examine the profile of each of these individuals," the top cop explained. Reddi added that Twitter India executives had promised all support to the city police in this regard.
Times of India:The denial....BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh counter terrorist group (CTG) and Anti-Terrorist Squad (MPATS) have reportedly rounded up three youths, from Jabalpur district, who followed and interacted with ISIS propaganda Twitter account @ShamiWitness run by Mehdi Masroor Biswas.
The trio, which was picked up from district's Rampur Patel Mohalla on Wednesday night, was among 17,700 followers of Mehdi's Twitter handle.
IBT:Jabalpur Inspector General (IG) Srinivas Rao has denied reports that three Jabalpur youths have been detained to probe their alleged interaction with ISIS Twitter account @ShamiWitness, allegedly owned by Mehdi Masroor Biswas.The ShamiWitness account has been restored in full to Twitter but its unknown if this is because of co-operation by Biswas or Twitter itself or both.
"Some other agency must (be) working on it...not us," The Times of India quoted Rao as saying. He added that the "detentions" could be just a rumour.
Madhya Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (MPATS) chief Sanjeev Shami also said that no one has been arrested in connection with the @ShamiWitness case.
However, reports indicate that MPATS and Counter Terrorist Group (CTG) have indeed detained three youths from Rampur Patel Mohalla in Jabalpur district on Wednesday night.
I think its probably both. Either way the ShamiWitness data is entirely in the hands of Indian authorities who have stated they are receiving assistance from British Intelligence.
I'll Take Things That Are Banned in India For 100 Alex
India officially banned the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) after a top executive was arrested for spreading propaganda on behalf of the terrorist group. Medhi Masroor Biswas’s Twitter account @ShamiWitness was one of the most influential accounts affiliated with the jihadist group.Also banned in India? Jawa Report.
“We had taken cognizance of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria activities in other countries,” said Home Minister Rajnath Singh. “As a first step we have banned this outfit in India.”
...It is true the number of Indians in the group or involved in its activities is only a handful,” said Singh. “But I want to make clear we are taking this seriously.”
India is still censoring this website. Apparently, India considers making fun of terrorists and their Islamist supporters more dangerous than the terrorists themselves. We are #2 on India's list of 17 websites that are being censored.
India reemphasized the ban today. Contrary to MSM reports, the only retreat was from the broader domain level ban, which was instituted by ISPs in India as a way to follow the directive to ban this and other websites.
You can see a copy of the document ordering us shut down in India here. The U.S. websites were banned because they are anti-Islamist in orientation. I am told that the other websites were either Hindu nationalists, advocated for the rights of the lower castes, or were anti-Communist in orientation.

Indian Police Arrest ShamiWitness
'Mehdi' Masroor Biswas -- suspected of operating a pro-Islamic State group Twitter account from Bangalore -- was arrested Saturday morning by police in Bangalore, ANI reported.Well maybe he can engineer his way out of Indian rectal probe prison?
Mekail Biswas, a man claiming to be the father of 'Mehdi' Masroor Biswas told International Business Times over the phone on Saturday that his son was not in any way linked to the militant group. Mekail added that his son’s name is Masroor Biswas, contradicting earlier reports that suggested that the name might be a pseudonym, and confirmed that his son was managing the @ShamiWitness Twitter account.
Mekail, a homeopathy doctor in Kolkata, told IBTimes that his son had been working in Bangalore for ITC, a conglomerate with interests in sectors ranging from hospitality to consumer goods to IT since June 2012.
"An employee has been arrested by Bengaluru Police in connection with an allegedly objectionable social media activity carried out under a pseudonym. We informed Bengaluru Police about his employment status as soon as we found media reports on this issue, and have extended every co-operation with the investigation process," Nazeeb Arif, a company spokesperson for Kolkata-based ITC, told IBTimes in an email on Saturday afternoon.

Brave al-Qaeda Muj Rolled in Ball Weeping For His Mommy
Gitmo is located somewhere near the arctic circle in Siberia. Wow I was unaware of the giant glaciers and freezing conditions in Cuba.
Samir Naji is a Yemeni who was accused of serving in Osama bin Laden's security detail and imprisoned for nearly 13 years...So sad, I mean the terrorist is lonely, so so lonely. Sniff sniff.
It starts and ends in the silence of a tiny, freezing cold cell, alone.
That's when you hold yourself in a ball, and fight to ignore the confusion of what has just happened to you, and the fear of what might be coming next. Or the fear that comes when you realize that no one is coming to help; that the life, family and friends you knew are all far, far away.
I tell the interrogators that I can't face not eating any more. They throw food on the floor of the room and tell me to eat like a pig. They won't let me go to the restroom. They watch as it gets more painful, and laugh as they get the translator to describe how they will rape me if I pee in my pants.'Merica! Fuck Yeah! He's going strait to hell for that.
The freezing cold cell. The cell door opens. They make me stand and salute the American flag.
I'm in a sort of cinema room, where I have to watch videos of other prisoners being abused. Then they tell me that I have to dance for them, and run in circles whilst they pull on my chains. Every time I try and refuse, they touch me in my most private areas.They touched his Wee Wee!
The freezing cold cell....
Jawa report file image of the freezing Cuban tundra.
The cell door opens. It has rained, and there are muddy puddles everywhere. I'm shackled, so I can't really walk; they deliberately drag me through the muddy puddles.OMG Puddles!

Indian Jihadi ISIS Stinks!
Sign up for Jihad today! Because ISIS needs engineers, sanitation engineers in the service of Allah!
An Indian student who travelled to Iraq to join the Islamic State group has returned home disillusioned after jihadists made him clean toilets and do other menial jobs, according to media reports.What an incredible smell you've discovered, this is indeed the fastest way to Jannah.
Areeb Majeed, 23, left for Iraq with three friends in late May amid fears by authorities that IS militants were attempting to recruit from India's large pool of young Muslim men.
The engineering student flew home Friday to Mumbai where he was arrested and charged by India's elite National Investigation Agency (NIA) with terror-related offences.
Majeed told NIA officers he was sidelined by the jihadists for whom he fetched water and performed other lowly tasks such as cleaning toilets, instead of taking part in the deadly offensive like he wanted, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.
He phoned his family to say he wanted to come home after suffering an unexplained bullet wound for which he did not get proper medical attention, the agency said late Sunday.
"Only after I begged them, I was taken to a hospital," he was quoted as saying by NIA officers. "There was neither a holy war nor any of the preachings in the holy book were followed."

What Really Happens to ISIS' Recruits
A British jihadi who fled the UK to fight alongside the Islamic State terror group has been killed in a firefight with Kurdish Peshmerga forces in Iraq.Like I said over the weekend Islamist ideologues and idealists will be the first ones that Baghdadi's Baathist generals will expend as cannon fodder and suicide bombers, lest they get any silly ideas about actually founding a state that deviates from the Baathist Fascist plans that Baghdadi and his former Saddam thugs have in mind.
Abu Musa al-Sumali is understood to have been shot dead in a fierce gun battle with local resistance troops in Kirkuk province in the north of the country, where ISIS has carried out repeat attacks in recent weeks.

The map zooms out further and shows us the IS worldview and aspirations. IS firmly believes that after the conquest of the entire Middle East, they will conquer Rome and al-Andalus (the historical name for the Iberian peninsula). After the re-establishment of the borders of the historical Calpihate; they will turn east and eventually conquer China and Japan. The end-phase will be the conquest of the Americas, referred to as al-Maghrib, the West.Back of the line buddy, back of the line.

The rebels who hatched the plot were a group of defected Syrian soldiers who are fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.

ISIS Training Children For Jihad
Instead of archery and merit badges of Cub Scouts, these boys learn how to clean, disassemble and shoot machine guns. While their peers in the U.S. build campfires, ISIS' diminutive devotees go from Quranic recitation drills to the front line of battle.But you can be sure that when these children inevitably get killed or wounded on the battlefield ISIS will point its finger and accuse whichever enemy it has on hand of "killing innocent Muslim children".
“They teach them how to use AK-47s,” one Iraqi security official told NBC News on condition of anonymity. “They use dolls to teach them how to behead people, then they make them watch a beheading, and sometimes they force them to carry the heads in order to cast the fear away from their hearts."
Some graduates of the camps are used as human shields and suicide bombers. Other wee warriors man checkpoints, hoist heavy weapons and act as enforcers.
..."It's being done for the same reasons that Hitler had the Hitler Youth," explained Charlie Winter, of the Quilliam Foundation, a London-based anti-extremist think tank. "That's effectively what we're seeing here — military training and ideological training."
The potent blend of military training with ideology is especially dangerous for impressionable minds, which is exactly why ISIS is targeting the young.
"There's no term better suited to it than brainwashing," Winter said. "These children won't have any point of reference other than jihadism so the ideology will be a lot more firm in their heads and a lot more difficult to dislodge."
When they placed those children in harms way to start with.
Its sad really, the entire Syrian conflict has used children in the most horrid and cynical manner.

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.

ISIS Crimes Against Humanity in Mosul
Human Rights Watch runs this account of ISIS treatment of Shia near Mosul. The claim that they only killed fighters falls flat because these were not fighters these were prisoners hunted and murdered for sport by ISIS fighters.
Gunmen from the Sunni extremist group Islamic State systematically executed some 600 male inmates from a prison outside the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on June 10, 2014, according to survivors’ accounts. The vast majority of those killed were Shia.
After seizing Badoush Prison near Mosul, the gunmen from Islamic State, also known as ISIS, separated the Sunni from the Shia inmates, then forced the Shia men to kneel along the edge of a nearby ravine and shot them with assault rifles and automatic weapons, 15 Shia prisoners who survived the massacre told Human Rights Watch. The gunmen also killed a number of Kurdish and Yezidi inmates of Badoush Prison, the survivors said.
“The gruesome details of ISIS’ mass murder of prison inmates make it impossible to deny the depravity of this extremist group,” said Letta Tayler, senior terrorism and counterterrorism researcher. “People of every ethnicity and creed should condemn these horrific tactics, and press Iraqi and international authorities to bring those responsible to justice.”
The mass summary executions amount to war crimes and most likely crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch said.

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.

which puts ISIS between a rock and three hard spots. Cornered by its own bravado into either keeping its word and losing Islamic legitimacy or freeing Mr. Kassig to do his work.
Abdul-Rahman Kassig, the American Muslim convert and aid worker formerly known as Peter, has been named by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as the next victim in their series of videoed murders of British and American captives.
Isil members warned on Twitter that Mr Kassig was to be killed on Wednesday, as a "deadline" passed for meeting their demands – that America call off its bombing campaign.
But the Isil threat to Mr Kassig has caused dissent from within the ranks of the jihadists' own community, with a number of Islamists speaking out in support of him, particularly because of his conversion.
Abu Omar Aqidi, a prominent member of al-Qaeda faction Jabhat al-Nusra, said in a public statement that he had been told Mr Kassig was the medic who treated him and other fellow jihadists.
Salah ad-Din Refsdal, 51, who was born Paul Refsdal said: "People have suggested that Caliph Ibrahim is not informed that some of his followers are planning to murder Abdul Rahman Kassig.
"That must clearly be the case. Having studied Islam extensively he for sure is aware of how enormous of a sin it would be to murder a brother who just converted to Islam."
Mr Refsdal cited an Islamic ruling condemning the killing of Muslim converts, adding that Baghdadi: "must therefore do the only right thing and stop his followers from murdering our brother Abdul Rahman Kassig".
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.

Actual Real Life Terrorists Notice Houston Baghdadi's American Jihad
click for larger
And in English for Arabic challenge folks like myself.
I'd say that ups the danger that AbdulRahman Baghdadi poses, wouldn't you.
If the Muslim community in Houston cannot foster and guild him correctly onto a better path, then someone else will. He will meet a real terrorist or group online who will take advantage, give him that place he is seeking and attempt to influence him to do something really extra stupid and/or dangerous.so it appears that at least one of my fears if founded. Given yesterday's events in Canada I don't think we can afford to just let Jihadis run around.
After all Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau was being watched, but the authorities thought his only crime was the not really a crime crime of aiding the dissemination of al-Qaeda propaganda in a context of support for al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Its this context that we have said for years justifies the fighting against the propagation of terrorist materials by groups that have declared open war on the west and are also a specially designated terrorist group.
This is not banning "information" as some suggest, rather it is disabling the enemies propaganda outlet. To deny the enemy a den, where they become more radicalized and prone to act out their Jihad on innocents.
Which is right where we are with Adam "Baghdadi" although he openly declares allegiance to IS and spreads messages of support, which by the way are a specially designated terrorist group, but we wait and wait for the "real crime".
I fear pretty soon we're going to get a real crime.
This is the product of the watch only policy on online terrorism. An ever, growing, ever more radical, and ever more radical group of terrorists grows unchecked. With the end result being real world terrorism.

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.
Now They've Done It!
Members of a massive Dutch motorcycle gang, armed with Kalashnikov rifles, recently joined Kurdish forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq, vowing to “exterminate the rodents.”
The leader of No Surrender -- which has dozens of chapters in the Netherlands and across Europe -- told state broadcaster NOS on Friday that three of its members have traveled to Mosul in Northern Iraq to take up the fight against ISIS, AFP reports.
A photo posted on a Dutch-Kurdish Twitter account last week shows a heavily-tattooed man in military garb flashing the “victory” sign alongside a Kurdish fighter inside a bunker.
“Ron from The Netherlands has joined the Kurds to exterminate the rodents of [ISIS],” a caption with the photo reads, according to the New York Post.
Ron uit Nederland heeft zich bij de Koerden aangesloten om het IS ongedierte te bestrijden. Respect! pic.twitter.com/xES1nmJg8h— Koerden in NL (@KoerdenNL) October 9, 2014

Kurds Assist ISIS Fighter
Kurdish grocer Cuneyt Hemo remembers the moment he crossed paths with a jihadist Islamic State (IS) prisoner inside the besieged Syrian town of Kobane.So the next day the Kurds shot him in the head as requested.
"He begged us to kill him so he could go to paradise and be rewarded," Hemo told AFP, in a rare glimpse of life inside the town which has been fought over street by street for nearly a month.
The bearded jihadist explained at length to his captors how he had come to Kobane to "deliver it from the kuffar" (the infidels).
"We tried in vain to help him find reason. But he did not want to know anything," said Hemo.
"He said again and again that we were the infidel and he wanted to go to paradise to find the 40 women who had been promised to him," he added.
All's well that ends well I always say.
Hat Tip: Dan.

Imperial Good News! Airstrikes Kill Hundreds of ISIS Fighters Near Kobane
A barrage of U.S.-led airstrikes in and around the Syrian city of Kobani, including 39 over the past two days, has killed hundreds of Islamic State fighters and has stiffened the city's Kurdish defenders, the Pentagon's spokesman said Wednesday.Get some!
Offering an unusually detailed description of the fighting, Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters that all but "hundreds" of civilians have evacuated the city and that increasing numbers of Islamic State group fighters are flowing in.
"One of the reasons why you're seeing more strikes there is because there is more ISIL there," Kirby said, using a common acronym for the extremist group. Their greater numbers are providing more targets for U.S. bombs, he said.
"It's hard to give an exact number, but we believe that we have killed several hundred ISIL fighters," he added. He did not specify a time period; airstrikes there began Oct. 1, according to U.S. Central Command, which announced Wednesday that it had launched 18 airstrikes near Kobani over the previous 24 hours, following a barrage of 21 strikes there the previous 24 hours.
Kirby said Kobani remains in danger of falling to the Islamic State fighters, who are intently focused on the city.
"These guys want to grab ground. They want territory," he said. "Kobani is a territory they want."
