Is The ISIS Coming To Your Town?

If the commander of ISIS, known by his supporters as Caliph Ibrahim, instructs returning foreign jihadists to carry out attacks within the U.S. then those returning fighters would be obliged to obey, declared a British extremist cleric today.

Anjem Choudary, founder of the outlawed Al Muhajiroun British pro-terrorist organization, made this statement during an interview on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio on New York’s AM 970 The Answer.

Choudary was asked, “What if Caliph Ibrahim [of ISIS] asked returning jihadists, the foreign fighters who have been fighting in ISIS, some from the U.K., some from the U.S., what if he asked them to carry out attacks within the United States. Would they have to obey?”

Replied Choudary: “Obviously it’s a hypothetical question. But if he were to ask people to carry out operations, yes, he would be obliged for them to obey him.”

Choudary was referring to senior ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has been named the caliph – or theocratic absolute monarch – of the self-proclaimed Islamic State in parts of Iraq and Syria.

Over 400 British citizens and a handful of Americans were fighting overseas as members of ISIS, according to media reports.

Choudary confirmed his former students and followers handed out pro-ISIS leaflets in London’s West End calling for British citizens to join the Caliphate in Iraq and pledge allegiance to the “khaleef,” aka Baghdadi.

Following reports that it was a British citizen who beheaded American journalist James Foley last week, this radio host asked Choudary whether he feels personally responsible for encouraging British citizens to join the jihad in Iraq and Syria.

“Not really,” Choudary replied. “I mean if people want to live under the Sharia then obviously that is their choice. I propagate and believe that it is better to live under the Sharia and obviously we have been working to establish the khaleefa, you know, for decades and if someone wants to go live there that is their own personal choice. ”

“I believe that I can fulfill my responsibility wherever I am in the world,” he added.

It is estimated that one in five terrorists convicted in Britain over the past decade were either members of, or linked to, Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun.

 

Saudia Arabia Assisted Israeli Drone

Saudi Arabia assisted Israel in flying the drone that was reportedly downed by Iran near a nuclear site, according to Jordanian security officials.

The security officials did not detail the kind of assistance provided by the Saudis, but it is likely to have entailed use of a Saudi airbase.

The officials said their information confirmed Iran’s Revolutionary Guard claim of downing the Israeli drone near the Natanz uranium enrichment facility. The Arabic-language Al-Alam TV aired what the channel described as drone parts scattered in a desert.

ABC News noted the rubble contained no visible Israeli markings while the Israel Defense Forces has so far declined to comment.

The Revolutionary Guard released a statement describing the drone’s range as about 500 miles and that it was equipped with high-resolution cameras for panoramic imagine.

In November 2013, this journalist reported Israeli personnel that month were in Saudi Arabia to inspect bases that could be used as a staging ground to launch attacks against Iran, according to informed Egyptian intelligence officials.

The officials said at the time the U.S. passed strong messages to Israel and the Saudis that the Americans maintain and control radar capabilities around the skies of Iran and that no strike should be launched without the permission of the Obama administration.
