ISIS Milestone No Communion in Nineveh

For the first time in nearly 2000 years there was no Communion in Ninevah.

White said now that ISIS militants have captured all of the region's church buildings, there is no place to hold communion for the few Christians who are left. But not only have the militants set up offices inside the churches, they have stripped down the crosses and replaced them with the Islamic State black flag.

"Last week there was no communion in Nineveh for the first time in 2,000 years," White said. "All [the churches] are closed, all their people have run away. It is so sad."

White also said that Christians who live in other areas of Iraq, although not quite as affected, are also fearful because ISIS is enclosing upon the Baghdad region. In a Facebook post from Monday, White detailed the gloomy state of Baghdad as people remain in fear.

Bible Gateway:
Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover. And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Isa wept.

Oh No We Didn't Underestimate The threat

Or why James Clapper should be fired!Institute for the Studya of War:

ISW has predicted the rise of the Islamic State since 2012. Read our forecasts here.(pdf)
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) provides accurate geostrategic forecasts and advanced warning of growing threats. ISW analysts have accurately forecasted the political fragmentation of Iraq and the return of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), now the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), since 2011. ISW analysts have correctly predicted the origins, pathways, methods, and aims of ISIS’s return.

ISW conducts strategic forecasting as a core intellectual contribution to foreign policy. ISW’s leaders believe that strategic surprise can be averted by monitoring the trajectories of complex problems over time, even from unclassified information. Over the last 18 months, ISW has published a number of forecasts that anticipated the resurgence of AQI, the devolution of the Iraqi Security Forces, and the emergence of the ISIS campaign to control territory inside Iraq and Syria. This document is a compilation of forecasts made by ISW’s analysts that have come true. Strategic forecasting does not presume that complex situations will always unfold as predicted. ISW strives to apply concrete knowledge of the present in order to deliver insight about the future. ISW hopes that this policy makers can use these insights in order to take a proactive rather than a reactive posture to emerging crisis situations and prevent their escalation.

Except that the guy doing the firing was also the one who directed him to say a lot of stupid stuff. I mean canning Clapper without Canning his boss is just, you know, pissing into the wind.

Or the President could just read Jawa Report.

A Google search for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, starting in Jan 2012 and ending in December 2013 yields over 10 pages of results.

The Blessed Release of The FBI Investigation of Samir Khan AKA Inshallahshaheed (Sticky)

It is my honor to post possibly the best post of my life, today.

suspendsamirimages0929.JPG

Vice News:

In 2006, a high priority for the FBI was tracking the owner of a blog called Inshallahshaheed who frequently posted commentary in support of Muslim extremist groups and violent jihad.

The FBI feared that both the shifting tone of the blog entries and the dozens of videos the blogger posted to YouTube depicting terrorist operations indicated that he was planning an attack against the US, or intended to join up with militants in Iraq and Afghanistan to fight the US military.

Five years later, that blogger, Samir Khan, was killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen alongside radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who the Obama administration had secretly targeted for death, setting off a fierce debate over executive power. Both men were affiliated with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — and both men were US citizens.

Jawa Report gets a mention.
The New York Times story that the analyst mentions was the first news report written about Khan. It was published on October 15, 2007 and examined his online preachings in the context of how radical jihadists use the Internet to spread their message.

sammy_beotch_slapped_again2.jpg
Jawa Report PWNs Samir Khan for Hotlinking.

The Washington, DC analyst recommended that the agent in Charlotte read a post contained on an anti-jihad blog called the Jawa Report:

You will find more information that is new it will all be laid out for you by [redacted]. Please read the comments section if you need to. I am in great hopes you will lock him up once and for all. He is a traitor. He gives aid and comfort to the stated enemies of our government. He is more than just a propagandist as far as I am concerned.
As I recall Samir Khan was first outed publicly by a Jawa report reader's link to Blogger profile he has used after he first reverted to Islam but before Samir became a seriously radicalized al-Qaeda supporter. After looking at the writings of that old blog (Human Liberation - an Islamic Renaissance) and the Ignored Puzzled Pieces of Knowledge Blog it became clear the author of both blogs was the same person. The old Blogger profile contained Samir Khan's real name and location and included a picture of Khan.

We closed the comments on that post, but by then the cat was out of the bag that the terrorist blogger known as Inshallahshaheed (A Martyr God Willing) was indeed Samir Khan.

See post: Inshallashshaheed Outted: North Carolina Jihadi in the News (UPDATED)

The FBI's eyebrows were raised when Samir wrote a post in favor of an al-Qaeda invasion of Manhattan. Now the post was a bit of a pipe dream, but i was clear where Samir Khan's loyalties lay and also posted on the sixth anniversary of 9/11.

blessedfbi.png

See the original post here: Website: Soon, The Blessed Invasion of Manhattan-- "Special Gift" for 9/11( copy of the post is on page 138 of the .pdf)

The reference to Wordpress was removed when Wordpress Suspended Samir's blog. One of many Jawa takedowns on Samir.

Vice News has posted a pdf. from the FBI and its investigation of Samir Khan here.(embedded below the fold)

Our celebration of the Droning of Samir Khan also contains many links to Jawa Report coverage Inspire founder Samir Khan and his online activities.

And the last word goes to Dr. Rusty Shackleford.

Samir Khan: Still Gay, Still Dead
Rusty: Still Laughing

Update: Just for kicks, one of female Indonesian blogger Jihadi Princess' old comments on Samir Khan's blog. Jihadi Princess is well known and inspired Jihad Jane, to the point that some days I still get them mixed up.

jihadjanesammy.png

Update II: Jihadi blogger and Atlanta teacher Al X (stewart) gets a mention too. I think he's one of the few core Revolution Muslim members to stay out of prison.

An FBI file from 2007 said agents identify the blogger, based on comments posted on his blog, as a "30 year old male, black-Muslim convert living in the Southern United States" who "identifies his occupation as 'Mujahid in training.'" The FBI was worried the unnamed blogger's "rhetoric, especially concerning conducting violent jihad in the United States, could encourage Samir Zafar Khan of his path of escalation to actually conduct a terrorist act in the United States."
Al X is also known as Black Lion.

Update III:

The New York Times story that the analyst mentions was the first news report written about Khan. It was published on October 15, 2007 and examined his online preachings in the context of how radical jihadists use the Internet to spread their message.
The "First news report written about Khan", Really? Really?

Jawa Report readers were told about Khan months earlier although he had not been named publicly. So the NY times was hardly the "first news report about Khan".

Dear Vice, Suck it.

Update IV: Friend of Jawa Report Abu Yahood gets a mention too.

Racist ISIS Post Calls Obama The Mule of the Jews Calls on Muslims To Murder Kuffar in US, France and Australia

Another day another verdict on our necks brought you by the Religion of Peace™.

Femininican: In an audio recording distributed widely on social media Sunday, Islamic extremist group ISIS urged Muslims globally to launch attacks on civilians in member countries of a U.S.-led coalition opposed to their violent spread through areas of Syria and Iraq.
The statement begins with the usual All Praise be to Allah the Most Merciful the Most Beneficient line of BS. Then goes on about Obama being a Mule to the Jews and also contains a particular jab at the Filthy French.
And O Obama, O mule of the jews. You are vile. You are vile. You are vile. And you will be disappointed, Obama. Is this all you were capable of doing in this campaign of yours? Is this how far America has reached of incapacity and weakness? Are America and all its allies from amongst the crusaders and atheists unable to come down to the ground? Have you not realized – O crusaders – that proxy wars have not availed you nor will they ever avail you? Have you not realized, O mule of the jews, that the battle cannot be decided from the air at all? Or do you think that you are smarter than Bush, your obeyed fool, when he brought the armies of the cross and placed them under the fire of the mujahidin on the ground? No, you are more foolish than him.

You claimed to have withdrawn from Iraq – O Obama – four years ago. We said to you then that you were liars, that you had not withdrawn, and that if you had withdrawn that you would return, even if after some time, you would return. Here you are; you have not withdrawn. Rather you hid some of your forces behind your proxies and withdrew the rest. Your forces will return greater in number than they were before. You will return and your proxies will not avail you. And if you are not able to return, then we will come to your homeland by Allah’s permission.O mule of the jews, you claimed today that America would not be drawn to a war on the ground.

Then the speaker goes on to ask Muslims all over the world to kill Americans, French, Australians and pretty much everybody. Specifically issuing a religious ruling against civilians that their blood is halal and murdering Non-Muslim civilians in the west is the same as spilling the blood of a dog, ISIS considers dogs unclean, and you also a subhuman animal, you blood is Halal, or permitted for any Muslim to spill as he see's fit. They also ask Muslims to spit int he face of Non-Muslims in the west or to bash in our heads with rocks.

O muwahhidīn in Europe, America, Australia, and Canada… O muwahhidīn in Morocco and Algeria… O muwahhidīn in Khorasan, the Caucasus, and Iran… O muwahhidīn everywhere upon the face of the earth… O brothers in creed… O people of walā’ (allegiance to the Muslims) and barā’ (disavowal of disbelievers)… O patrons of the Islamic State… O you whohave given bay’ah (pledge of allegiance) to the Caliph Ibrāhīm everywhere… O you who have loved the Islamic State… O you who support the Caliphate… O you who consider yourselves from amongst its soldiers and patrons…Your state is facing a new campaign by the crusaders. So O muwahhid, wherever you may be, what are you going to do to support your brothers? What do you wait for as the people have become two encampments and the heat of the war increases day by day? O muwahhid, we call you up to defend the Islamic State. Dozens of nations have gathered against it. They began their war against us at all levels. So rise O muwahhid. Rise and defend your state from your
place wherever you may be. Rise and defend your Muslim brothers, for their homes, families, and wealth are threatened and deemed lawful by their enemies. They are facing a battle which is of the decisive, critical battles in the history of Islam. If the Muslims are defeated, they will be humiliated in such a manner that no humiliation compares to. And if the Muslims are victorious – and this will be the case by Allah’s permission – they will be honored with all honor by which the Muslims will return to being the masters of the world and kings of the earth.

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawāghīt. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European –especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn. The civilian outfit does not make blood illegal to spill, and the military uniform does not make blood legal to spill. The only things that make blood illegal and legal to spill are Islam and a covenant (peace treaty, dhimma, etc.).

Blood becomes legal to spill through disbelief. So whoever is a Muslim, his blood and wealth are sanctified. And whoever is a disbeliever, his wealth is legal for a Muslim to take and his blood is legal to spill. His blood is like the blood of a dog; there is no sin for him in spilling it nor is there any blood money to be paid for doing such.

Allah the Exalted said, {And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush} [At-Tawbah: 5].

And He the Exalted said, {So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks} [Muhammad: 4].

And Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) said, “The disbeliever and his killer will never gather in Hellfire.” And he said, “Whoever kills a disbeliever, then he can have his loot [which is on his person].”

So O muwahhid… O you who believes in walā’ and barā’… will you leave the American, the Frenchman, or any of their allies to walk safely upon the earth while the armies of the crusaders strike the lands of the Muslims not differentiating between a civilian and fighter? They have killed nine Muslim women three days ago by striking a bus transporting them from Shām to Iraq. Will you leave the disbeliever to sleep safely at home while the Muslim women and children shiver with fear of the roars of the crusader airplanes above their heads day and night?
How can you enjoy life and sleep while not aiding your brothers, not casting fear into the hearts of the cross worshippers, and not responding to their strikes with multitudes more?

So O muwahhid wherever you may be, hinder those who want to harm your brothers and state as much as you can. The best thing you can do is to strive to your best and kill any disbeliever, whether he be French, American, or from any of their allies.

{O you who have believed, take your precaution and [either] go forth in companies or go forth all together} [An-Nisā’: 71].

If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.

Do not lack. Do not be contemptible. Let your slogan be, “May I not be saved if the cross worshiper and taghūt (ruler ruling by manmade laws) patron survives.”If you are unable to do so, then burn his home, car, or business. Or destroy his crops. If you are unable to do so, then spit in his face. If your self refuses to do so, while your brothers are being bombarded and killed, and while their blood and wealth everywhere is deemed lawful by their enemies, then review your religion. You are in a dangerous condition because the religion cannot be established without walā’ and barā’.

This is the compassion and mercy that the Religion of Peace has saved for you, And although ISIS cannot even correctly spell the insuilt to Christians, Cross Worshiper, correctly that doesn't mean they still won't cut your head off.

Wipe ISIS out, all of them.

ISIS Gets Bombed By..... France?

How utterly humiliating!

France has carried out its first air strike in Iraq, destroying a logistics depot held by the Islamic State (Isis) militants.

swancebombsisis.jpg

The office of President Francois Hollande said Rafale fighter jets struck the depot in north eastern Iraq and the target was "entirely destroyed". In a statement, it said other operations will continue in the coming days.

At a news conference on Thursday, Mr Hollande said France had agreed to conduct airstrikes requested by Iraq to bolster its fight against Isis fighters who have captured swathes of the country.

To add even insult to injury, French Muslims voted 80% for Francois Hollande.

Ironic.

Sunnis and Shia Really Not All That Different

The Saudis and ISIS each have their respective versions of the religious police, As do the Iranian Mullahs.

The Iranian regime is intensifying domestic repression by allowing a new paramilitary force patrol the streets of Iran, especially in the capital Tehran, "to promote virtue and prevent sinning" as a pretext.

The new repressive initiative which will be implemented by plainclothes agents will specifically target the Iranian women and youth in an attempt to quell popular discontent and prevent anti-government protests.

Commander of the new paramilitary force "Ansar-e-Hezbollah" announced this week that his forces will conduct "extensive patrols, especially in Tehran to promote virtue and prevent sins." The mission of his thugs will be to harass ordinary people on the streets across Iran, especially women, under the pretext of "bad veiling".

Abdol Hamid Mohtasham promised that "the corrupt and their supporters to be knocked down and cleared from the scene despite nightly and daily attacks from enemies and hypocrites." He warned at the same time that "if we do not address them, they will stand up to Hezbollah."

Yes lest the Iranians or the Saudis or the Syrians actually become free people. Nothing scares Islamists more than freedom. Why is that?

plainclothes-agents-iran-550-300x192.jpg

Besides, I've been kind of pissed at the Iranians since the Supreme Asshole insulted the USA on 9/11. So maybe interfering with ISIS and Iran killing each other has a down side?

ISIS' Chlorine Work Accident

I'm sure the Muj were just using the chlorine rockets for, you know, public service works. Like to sanitize kiddie pools and make safe drinking water.

Baghdad, Sep 16 (IANS/EFE) At least 14 members of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group were killed Tuesday near Baghdad when a rocket whose warhead they were filling with chlorine gas exploded.

Iraqi security officials said seven more IS militants were injured in the incident, which occurred near the town of al-Dhuluiya, about 90 km north of Baghdad.

Al-Dhuluiya was also where four members of the Iraqi security forces and Shiite militiamen suffered symptoms of asphyxiation after inhaling chlorine gas released by two improvised explosive devices.

Doesn't this cross some sort of pinkish line?

if ISIS Isn't Islamic The Pope Isn't Cathlolic

Or some variation on that here at New Republic:

s ISIS slaughters its way though Syria and Iraq, it became inevitable that we’d hear from apologists who claim that ISIS is not in fact “true Islam,” and that its depredations are due to something other than religious motivation. Those motivations, say the apologists, are political (usually Western colonialism that engenders resentment), cultural (societal tradition), or anything other than religion.

massacreinsultislam.jpg

These apologists, of course, which now include President Obama, are motivated by a desire to avoid criticizing religion at all costs—especially Islam.....

Actually, what people like Obama, Paul, Volsky, and Jenkins consider “true” faith is this: “faith that promotes the kind of behavior that I like.” So, as do all believers, the apologists pick and choose from scripture the dictates that they find congenial, ignoring the bad ones.

Like Rusty once said, Islam is what Muslims believe it is, so to the extent that Muslims in ISIS and those who support it believe it represents Islam, it represents Islam. Its that simple.

Update: ISIS doesn't grant anyone free speech, but they demand that Twitter carry their beheading videos or else Fatwa.

An ISIS-affiliated group has threatened to assassinate Twitter employees that close down their accounts.

Users linked to the extremists tweeted a series of messages on Sunday urging 'lone wolves' in the US and Europe to make the firm their target.

One of the calls is believed to have come from Al Musra Al Maqdisia, or The Supporters Of Jerusalem - a Jerusalem-based group that pledged its allegiance to ISIS in February.

Boston Blogger Becomes ISIS Media Head

American Thinker:

Yet another American is suspected of joining ISIS and using skills acquired in this country to advance the goal of a global caliphate. Ahmad Abousamra, a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston with a degree related to computer technology, is suspected of being the social media manager of ISIS and is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.
Ahmad Abousamra is a long time participant in the Cyber Jihad.

Jawa Report first ran his addition to the most wanted list in December of last year.

He is a long time associate of convicted terrorist Tarek Mehanna, who still maintains that he's, you know, totally innocent, convicted, he claims, of "thought crimes."

tarek_mehanna_protest_ap_img.jpg

20214-akbar.jpg

Thought crimes, as in when two US soldiers were dragged through the streets and burned in Iraq he called it..

nice juicy BBQ
I want ... more BBQ sauce videos
There is still an online campaign to free Mehanna.

Here are all the Jawa Report posts that reference Abousamra.

Another known associate is convicted terrorist Daniel Maldanado.

Both Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra cut their radical teeth so to speak under the guidance of Sharon Imam Muhammad Masood who was later deported to Pakistan for visa fraud.

With Masood starting in on Ahmad Abousamra as early as age 14.

I would just like to add this comment from Rusty:

The charge is yet another indication that internet jihadis are often dangerous and should be taken seriously.
The online Jihad is just not speech, its often times advocacy and material support for the most extreme and terrorist organizations on Earth. Terrorists who are at war against all of us. Tolerating it as just thought crimes leads to what we have now in Syria and Iraq. Its just as, if not more dangerous in the long run as the car bomb on the field of combat.

The Jihad must have recruits it must be promoted and that is where people like Daniel Maldanodo, Terek Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra become not just a a bother, but a truly dangerous aspect of the Islamofascist war against all who would stand against an extreme sixth century caliphate like the one ISIS is creating in Iraq and Syria.

ISIS Loses MC (bumped: Video Added) (Update II: Heartbreak! He's Not So Dead Jim!)

You might remember the video of the little girl who got scared at an ISIS "youth rally" when she failed to recite her little poems correctly. She begins to cry because kids know what ISIS does to those who aren't real Muslims she probably feared for her head.

It was also passed around inaccurately as girl being forced to marry ISIS fighter.

Well good news, He's dead Jim!


Hooray!

Update 08/28: Here is a copy of the video I mentioned. Retweeting old pics of dead babies by Hamas supporters to incite hatred of Israel wrong/propaganda.

Like I said before a still from this video was being passed around as evidence the Muj in the vid war marrying the little girl. That is also wrong. Passing lies about ISIS only enables them to claim that every story about ISIS brutality is a Zionist Plot™.

ISIS does plenty of real documented evil on its own. There's no need to make up stuff.

So the little girl might be so scared that because she failed in her recitation, that ISIS might judge her the wrong kind of Muslim?

Kids aren't stupid, I'm sure she knows what happens to those ISIS is unhappy with. So the girl is scared because she lives in a war zone decorated with severed heads and death.

But ISIS gave her candy! So that kinda almost sorta makes up for what they've done to Syria's kids, ..... doesn't i......t? Um uh.... Dirka Dirka! Islam!

Thanks to Never Give up.

Abu Waqqas is still dead jim!

Also Did you know if you say his name over and over its sounds just like Pac Man.

Waqqas waqqas waqqas, bloooop! Glop!(200) Glop!(400) Glop!(800) Glop!(1600) Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

Update 09/04/14: So as it turns out, He's not dead.... yet.


But this guy obviously got the most out of his Syrian vacation.


Meh, you win some, you lose some I always say.

These Aren't The Moderate Opposition We're Looking For

Pajamas Media:

As the Obama administration struggles to address the threat from ISIS and plans to go to Congress in coming weeks to up its commitment against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, multiple media reports indicate that the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) is operating openly with ISIS and other designated terrorist groups. And yet financial and military support for the FSA is the keystone to the administration’s policy in Syria.

Last week the Washington Post reported on the Syrian ‘rebel’ takeover of the Golan Heights Quneitra border crossing with Israel (where I reported from last year), with the ‘rebels’ capturing the UN peacekeepers stationed at the crossing. The Post noted:

The United Nations gave no further details, but an Israeli military spokesman told CNN that the captors are suspected to be members of al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, which has been fighting alongside more-moderate, Western-backed rebels for control of the area.
The “more-moderate, Western-backed rebels” fighting alongside with Jabhat al-Nusra the Post was referring to, but didn’t dare name, was none other than the FSA.

This is not the only time the FSA has been caught allied with US-designated terrorist groups. Just a month ago the New York Times quoted a ‘rebel’ field commander saying that the FSA had joined ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra in attacking a border post in Lebanon:

Reached by phone in Arsal, Abu Osama, a member of Mr. Jomaa’s brigade, said that the sole purpose of Saturday’s attacks was to secure the release of Mr. Jomaa and that they were carried out as a combined operation involving fighters from the Free Syrian Army, the Nusra Front and ISIS.
The Times report was quick to note that Abu Osama’s claim could not be confirmed, no doubt because that fact would be devastating to the Obama administration’s ongoing narrative about the “moderate, vetted” FSA. But the facts about the true nature of the FSA are getting harder to conceal.
As they say, Read the Rest.

Hat Tip: Achmed.

According to a report from Minnesota Twin Cities FOX affiliate KMSP that aired Tuesday night, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, previously worked for Delta Global Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines.

Dear ISIS (ISIL/IS): Steven Sotloff Was Israeli

Israeli media gag order was lifted today and notes Mr Sotloff made aliyah (immigrated) to Israel in 2005.

American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was brutally beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, took great risks to keep his Jewish faith in captivity, a former fellow-captive of the murdered journalist told Yediot Aharonoth.

However, it turns out that Sotloff was in fact Israeli.

A media gag order on the issue was released on Wednesday, allowing publication of the fact that Sotloff made aliyah (immigration) to Israel in 2005 by himself, and studied at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya.[...]

Heroically maintaining Judaism under captivity

Sotloff reportedly made sure to fast in secret during Yom Kippur and even prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as is customary in Jewish prayers, despite the risk he faced if his Islamist captors ever found out he was Jewish.

One of Sotloff's fellow captives, who was subsequently released, told the paper that he feigned illness in order to escape his captors' suspicions.

"He told them he was ill and didn't want to eat, even though they brought us eggs that day," the witness told Yediot Aharonoth, "It looked like he was praying in a hidden way towards Jerusalem. He noted what way the Muslims were praying in and changed his direction slightly."[ More]

Yeah bitches, you blew it and he won!

Some people are commenting (His family is not pleased with Obama) that Mr Sotloff was beheaded on the same day Mr Foley was. Wrong! In the Foley beheading video Mr Sotloff was pretty much clean shaven including his hair. In the Sotloff beheading video his beard was starting to show as well as the hair on his head growing back.

Tip of the hat to @El_Grillo

I would like to remember Steven Sotloff this way:

Update: Apparently he was a grandson of Holocaust survivors who immigrated to Florida.

Report: Steven Sotloff Beheaded


If true, prayers for his family.

Update by Howie: I have obtained a copy of the Site Institute's copy of the video. I can confirm that Steven Sotloff was murdered.


And he didn't do well with it, attempting to struggle.

The murder is committed by the same UK Jihadi who murdered James Foley. He complains especially about ISIS losing Mosul dam. At the end he threatens the life of UK citizen David Cawthorne Haines.

Again ISIS cut the worst parts of the video.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sotloff family at this time and also to the family of Mr. Haines and our brothers in the UK.

ISIS' American Jihadis Dropping Like Flies

Abdirahmaan Muhumed is dead Jim!

Sources say American-born ISIS terrorist Abdirahmaan Muhumed was killed in a Syrian battle over the weekend.

The second homegrown terrorist killed in Syria over the weekend is a Minnesota dad-of-nine, a report says.


Abdirahmaan Muhumed, identified earlier this year as an ISIS-recruited, homegrown terrorist, apparently died in terrorist-on-terrorist clashes over the weekend, sources told KMSP-TV. He was killed in the same ISIS battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain, who the State Department identified Tuesday

What Happens When The War Booty Runs Out

The Islamic State runs its operations by stealing oil and by stealing from the people they conquer. War booty they call it, its Halal they say.

Since its inception, ISIL has fought other groups and focused its operations on controlling oil fields in order to fund its existence and "push forward with its criminal plan", observers said.

They warned against buying black market oil originating from ISIL-controlled regions, as profit made from these sales "ensure the group's continuity".

In a July 28th statement, the UN Security Council warned member states against the purchase of oil from groups such as ISIL and al-Nusra Front and required them to "ensure that their nationals and any persons within their territory do not trade in oil with these entities".

"Such engagement constitutes financial support for terrorists and may lead to further sanctions," the statement said.

But what happens when the war booty is spent and the daily grind off actually running a state comes around?
IN BETWEEN chopping off the heads of its adversaries, crucifying miscreants and committing acts of genocide, the Islamic State (IS), the al-Qaeda-minded extremist group that straddles Iraq and Syria and is being targeted by American airstrikes, is dealing with more mundane issues—such as the school curriculum.

This month IS called in teachers in Raqqa province in eastern Syria and set out new conditions for them to receive their salaries, according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR), a Britain-based group that has a network of informants in Syria. IS told the teachers to dedicate more hours to Islamic studies, and to drop subjects including philosophy and chemistry.

Its a lot less glorious running a School Board than doing Jihad. And the ISIS adrenaline junkies quickly lose interest.

A Declaration of War We All Wanted To See

The Islamic State of Losers declares war on HAMass and The Muslim Bitchderhood.

There is a war of fatwas and some serious cyber rattling back and forth between the Muslim Brotherhood on the one hand and the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) on the other hand. The fatwa wars erupted after Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, president of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars, the spiritual father of the Muslim Brotherhood, denounced the legitimacy for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as Caliph of the Muslim world. In turn, the ISIS denounced the Muslim Brotherhood and in addition Hamas as “apostates” and “followers of witchcraft theology”

And it seems the world is finally coming around to our view that Islamic Terror Propaganda is something to be fought actively. We've noticed that providers, especially Google has been more cooperative in removing ISIS propaganda lately. Since Obama has acted in Iraq. Good for them. Not only are they taking down the Foley Murder videos they are erasing all traces from Google's Cache.

But lets get one thing clear, this is NOT President Obama's fault.

Evil people do evil things. ISIS are evil. We must fight evil. Its that simple.

al-Nusra The Kinder Gentler al-Qaeda Franchise?

The al-Nusra Front pulles PR coup and releases American Journalist.

An American hostage held by rebels in Syria for 22 months has been freed after Qatari mediation, just days after a video showed a fellow US journalist being beheaded by jihadists.

"Finally he is returning home," US Secretary of State John Kerry said late Sunday, confirming the release of Peter Theo Curtis, a 45-year-old author and freelance journalist whose disappearance had not been previously reported.

Curtis was handed over to UN peacekeepers in the Golan Heights and after undergoing a medical checkup was transferred to US representatives, the United Nations said.

That's a pretty smooth move by al-Nusra, taking advantage of the ire against ISIS by presenting themselves as the more moderate al-Qaeda.

Possibly in hopes of enlisting US help against al-Nusra and allowing the al-Qaeda Central approved version of the franchise to regain the power it enjoyed before the rise of ISIS.

ISIS Murders American Journalist James Foley

American Journalist James Foley has been murdered by ISIS.

In a statement citing Obama's authorization of airstrikes in support of Iraq and the the Kurds ISIS has murdered American Journalist James Foley in an act of revenge.

Jawa Report has obtained a copy of the video and can verify that James was beheaded.

FOLEYMURDERED.png

From James' family's website:

Journalist James Foley disappeared in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day, November 22 2012.
Jim is the oldest of five children. He has reported independently and objectively from the Middle East for the past five years. Prior to his work as a journalist, Jim helped empower disadvantaged individuals as a teacher and mentor assisting them in improving their lives.

The family appeals for the release of Jim unharmed.

The Foley Family

Our hearts go out to the Foley family in this most terrible time.

At the end of the production they are holding another prisoner one, Steven Joel Sotloff. Although my copy has not hint of his fate. It appears they will murder him next if their demands that US back down are not met.

Islamic State of Losers Having Very Bad Week

First ISIS lost complete control of its frighten the Americans Twitter campaign with Americans banding together in support of frightened goats everywhere.


effyoutoo.png

Next Twitter suspended many of the top ISIS supporters.

he vicious jihadist group known as ISIS has overrun vast stretches of Syria and Iraq — but it’s beginning to lose ground on Twitter.

Over the past week, Twitter administrators have stepped up their efforts to suspend accounts affiliated with the extremist group, according to experts tracking ISIS on social media and other sources.

Dozens of accounts have been terminated in the past week alone.
Charles Lister, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Doha Center, said 12 official ISIS “provincial-level accounts, upon which they published all news — military, political, social, religious — for that specific area,” were disabled by Twitter on Aug. 11 after operating for months.

The next day, ISIS members re-created and advertised the accounts — only to have Twitter disable them, too, Lister said. The accounts were relaunched yet again — and suspended a third time, Lister said. By Saturday morning, just one one inactive account remained.

This caused a terrible shortage of snuff porn inside the Jihadi community.

Cash strapped intelligence Analysts cringed at the prospect of getting a real job, resorting to hitting up destitute bloggers for $$$.

As the week continued ISIS continued to lose ground, suffering losses from US airstrikes and losing control of Iraq's largest dam to Kurdish forces.

An offensive to wrest control of a critical dam in northern Iraq from Sunni militants continued on Monday, as Kurdish and Iraqi forces tried to clear the area of mines and booby traps.

The campaign, which represents the most highly coordinated operation involving U.S., Kurdish and Iraqi forces since American troops left Iraq in 2011, began on Sunday and appeared to have beaten back much of the Islamic State's fighters occupying the area in and around the Mosul Dam.

By early Monday, Iraqi military officials said the strategic post had been retaken. Gen. Qassim Atta, a spokesman for Iraq's military in Baghdad, said the Iraqi flag was flying over the site and the military was now working on dismantling 170 explosives planted there by Islamic State militants.

...The ground campaign followed nearly two dozen U.S. airstrikes over the weekend. Jet fighters and armed drones targeted insurgent positions near the dam and at Erbil, capital of the semiautonomous Kurdish region, according to the U.S. Central Command, which oversees American forces in the Middle East.

The U.S. has conducted roughly 50 airstrikes in Iraq since Aug. 8. when President Barack Obama authorized U.S. air support after the Islamic State gained ground and fears that the Yazidi minority in the region would be targeted by the militants.

The airstrikes will continue until the Peshmerga and Iraqi security forces can retake the position, a U.S. defense official said.

And to make matters worse for ISIS, its now their dead burnt bodies that are appearing on the internet.

Then just as the offensive against ISIS was really getting underway, Assad decided it would be a good time to bomb their so called capital in Raqqa.

yrian war planes bombed positions belonging to the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) in the northern province of Raqqa for a second day Monday, an activist group said.

Regime planes killed 31 jihadists and eight civilians Sunday in an unprecedented wave of aerial bombardment against the group in its Raqqa bastion.

The bombing continued Monday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, with at least 14 raids against jihadist positions.

There was no immediate death toll in the renewed bombing.

Three raids targeted the area around the town of Tabqa in western Raqqa and four hit near the Tabqa military airport, the only remaining regime-held position in the province.

The other seven strikes hit sites inside Raqqa city, the provincial capital.

Well it couldn't have happened to a more deserving bunch of Losers, The Islamic State of Losers in Iraq and Syria.

Jawas Welcome Home Abu Omar al Amreeki

aka Donald Ray Morgan.

A Brooklyn judge ordered a suspected American militant who pledged allegiance to the terrorist leader of ISIS held without bail after he was arrested at Kennedy Airport, the Daily News has learned.

1d2.jpeg

FBI agents nabbed Donald Ray Morgan, a 44-year-old ex-convict from North Carolina, on Aug. 2 when he returned to the United States after an eight-month stay in Lebanon, where his wife lives.

Morgan, who has a previous conviction for firing a gun, had allegedly been brokering deals for military-grade weapons and ammo in his home state and was indicted for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

But what caught counter-terrorism agents attention were his chilling Twitter rants from the Middle East under the alias “Abu Omar al Amreeki.”

Assistant Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Nadia Moore presented a sampling of the evidence to Magistrate Ramon Reyes at a bail hearing last week to support her argument that the alleged gun trafficker was too dangerous to return to North Carolina on his own.

Although it looks like Omar's twitter feed has been scrubbed there are still quite a few items remaining. I recognized him as one I'd run across talking with various pro-Palestinian outlets and with the UK group known as Caged Prisoners.

Here's Mr. Morgan cc'ed in little chat about Hamas and Gaza.


Don't you know ISIS protect the churches. LOL


Here's some remnants of his Twitter feed on twitpic.

Wipe ISIS Out. All of Them

*I've never been prouder of President Obama than right now. But Mr. President ISIS is no pushover. See Headline.

President Obama authorized airstrikes "if necessary" against Islamic militants if they move toward Erbil in northern Iraq where American military, diplomats and civilians are stationed.

During a late night statement Thursday from the White House, the president said he's okayed "targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death."

Mr. Obama explained that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in recent days has "continued to move across Iraq and have neared the city of Erbil, where American diplomats and civilians serve at our consulate and American military personnel advise Iraqi forces to stop the advance on Erbil.

If you're going to use our powah, Use it very liberally Mr. President.


And you keep saying if necessary Its long past necessary, sir. Failure to crush ISIS will be a mistake we'll pay dearly for.


Update: Right on cue the ISIS supporters whine, but but civilians.


You mad bro?



*Didn't take much to reach that level, but if he bombs the living crap out of ISIS he begins filling that very large hole he's been digging.

Peshmerga Open New Offensive Against ISIS With Iraqi Regime Support

Is it possible that the US, Iran and the Iraqi regime are starting to get a clue about the value of supporting the Kurds?

Iraq's government sent its air force on Monday to back Kurdish forces struggling to blunt a jihadist advance, an extraordinary move that reflects alarm over the insurgents' brash new offensive against Kurds in both Iraq and Syria.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's authorization of air support came after the Kurdish forces, known as Peshmerga, lost a string of towns over the weekend to the militant group, which calls itself Islamic State. The Peshmerga had held off the insurgents in northwestern Iraq without central Iraqi government forces for nearly two months.

On Monday, the Peshmerga launched a counteroffensive to retake two towns—Sinjar and Zumar—said Kurdish and United Nations officials. The Kurds also drove the militants from two other towns, Wana and Rabia, Kurdish officials said, but fighting continued to rage and the situation appeared fluid.

The air support marks Baghdad's first such military commitment to the semiautonomous Kurdish government, marking a significant pledge to confront an extremist group striving to create an Islamic state across the historic area called the Levant, which includes Iraq and Syria.

...Iraqi Air Force jets started bombing targets in the town of Sinjar, west of Mosul near the Syrian border, and the broader area on Monday afternoon, Peshmerga spokesman Jabar Yawer said in an interview. The jets flew from and returned to Baghdad.

Monday's counteroffensive left the Kurdish fighters in control of Iraq's largest dam in Mosul, Mr. Yawer said, after Islamic State militants tried to seize it in their effort to control resources.

Lets hope so. Death to the Islamic State!

More on why we should help the Kurds here in the New Yorker.

During the American war, from 2003 to 2011, not a single American soldier was killed in the Kurdish region.

...And that’s the problem, at least according to the United States. Since 2003, American policy toward Kurdistan has been “one Iraq.” That is, no matter how friendly the Kurds are, no matter how pro-Western, American policy has been to keep Iraq together. That means: don’t do anything that helps the Kurds too much, lest they break away from Iraq and declare independence, which is most what most Kurds want.

Until recently, this made a certain amount of sense, even if it denied the Kurds their true desires. But, since June, when ISIS militants swept across the Syrian border and captured huge portions of northern and western Iraq, that policy has been more and more difficult to justify. The Kurds now share a huge border with ISIS-controlled territory, and only a few miles of what is left of Iraq. The Kurdish militia, called the peshmerga, fights ISIS every day. Since early this year, the Kurdish regional government, which presides over the area, has been cut off entirely from Iraq’s oil revenue—to which it is entitled by law—by the government in Baghdad. The way that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is dealing with the Kurds is the same way he dealt with the Sunni Arabs—harshly and arbitrarily. Indeed, Maliki’s actions toward the Sunnis precipitated the events that led to the ISIS takeover.

Hat Tip: Barkley.

If All The Kurds Pulled As Hard As They Could in Unison?

Would it be enough force to remove Obama and Malaki's heads from each other's rectums?

The ancient northern Iraqi town of Sinjar emptied Sunday, with thousands of people fleeing on foot as Sunni extremist militants made their first significant punches through the defenses of overstretched Kurdish forces.

The town of Wana also fell Sunday, putting the Islamic State within striking distance of Mosul’s hydroelectric dam, the largest in the country. After nearly two months of skirmishes, it was a second day of losses for the Kurds with extremists seizing the nearby town of Zumar on Saturday and two small oil fields.

Later reports are that ISIS is in control of the dam and the oil, which they will sell on the international market through an agreement with Bashar al-Assad though ISIS' Baathist ties.

Oh by the way the answer to the headline is no.

The Kurds are the only counterbalance to ISIS advance in Northern Iraq. ISIS has cut off any route Iraqi oil could take through the regime and onto the Iraqi port at Umm Qasr. Malaki refuses to allow Kurdish oil to flow north through Turkey to be sold on the open market.

Meanwhile the Kurds continue to fight ISIS, short handed and under equipped with no aid at all coming from the Obama administration or the Iraqi regime. Its almost as if they want ISIS to take all of Iraq and punish the Shia to the south int he same manner that Saddam did after the first gulf war.

Meanwhile ISIS feels comfortable enough to take part of Lebanon.

Seriously we couldn't do worse if we tried.

Dueling Atrocities

Yesterday a defector from the Assad regime called Caesar released a report on the Assad's regime, its eliminating its opponents on an industrial scale.

At Hospital 601, not far from the presidential palace in Damascus, Syrian guards ran out of space to store the dead and had to use an adjoining warehouse where military vehicles were repaired.

A forensic photographer working for Syria's military police walked the rows and took pictures of the emaciated and disfigured corpses, most believed to be anti-Assad activists. Numbers written on the bodies and on white cards, the photographer said, told regime bureaucrats the identities of the deceased, when they died and which branch of the Syrian security services had held them.

U.S. investigators who have reviewed many of the photos say they believe at least 10,000 corpses were cataloged this way between 2011 and mid-2013. Investigators believe they weren't victims of regular warfare but of torture, and that the bodies were brought to the hospital from the Assad regime's sprawling network of prisons. They were told some appeared to have died on site.

The report comes complete with graphic images of the dead and highlighted evidence of torture. And Assad's forces to torture. I've seen videos of them chopping off wounded Jihadi's fingers and general abuse of corpses and the living. I've seen Assad's forces dumping Jihadi bodies by the dozen into ravines and rivers. In general they are pretty brutal..

The full report is here(pdf). And embedded her at the Guardian.

assadtorture.jpg

What a coincidence ISIS is also killing on an industrial scale and yesterday released a new video to prove just how efficient their genocide against the Iraqi Shia can be.

Near the end they are killing people and pushing them into the river. I guess to poison the water down stream. The dock they push the victims from is soaked in blood.
