Syrian Refugee Kidnapped, Raped, Stabbed and Beheaded in Istanbul

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

A young Syrian man who fled the certain dangers of his homeland to what he thought was the safety of a new life in Istanbul has been found tortured to death, so badly mutilated that his friends had to identify him by his pants.

According to the report in Pink News, Wisam Sankari was gay — a status not well tolerated in the increasingly conservative society developing in Turkey, led by the Islamist AK (Justice and Development) Party headed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

There is also growing resentment among Turkish citizens against Syrian refugees, who are perceived to be a threat to employment and school opportunities for locals and other economic issues in the country.

Sankari arrived in Istanbul, the city once known as Constantinople, about a year ago after fleeing the civil war in Syria. The man was found dead during the last week in July, according to Cumhuriyet and other local news reports, which said his mutilated body was found in Yenikapi.

In fact, “They had cut Wisam violently… so violent that two knives had broken inside him. They had beheaded him. His upper body was beyond recognition, his internal organs were out. We could identify our friend from his pants,” said a friend, Rayan, who spoke with KaosGL.org.

This time they killed the young Syrian refugee, but it was not his first experience with abduction or torture at the hands of a band of men. His friends turned to alleged United Nations human rights advocates, who did nothing. Neither did local police.

“About five months ago a group kidnapped Wisam in Fatih. They took him to a forest, beat him and raped him,” Rayan said. “They were going to kill him but Wisam saved himself by jumping at the road. We complained to the police headquarters but nothing happened.”

Sankari and others had been threatened several times with rape, and more, several times by male groups armed with knives. They also had to leave a house in which they were living due to their obvious sexual orientation. “People around would constantly stare at us,” he said.

Another friend, Gorkem, told KaosGL.org that his friends had warned the victim not to leave the house due to recent threats, but he insisted on leaving “for 15-20 minutes.” When he didn’t return, the group panicked, and went to the Association for Solidarity with Asylum Seekers and Migrants (ASAM), which sent them to Fatih police headquarters.

“On Sunday police called us,” he said. They took the group of friends to Yenikapi to identify the body. Needless to say, they were horrified. Another friend, “Diya,” talked about also having been kidnapped twice before.

“They let me go in Cerkezkoy and I barely got home one time. I went to the United Nations for my identification but they did not even respond to that. No one cares about us. They just talk. I get threats over the phone.

“It does not matter if you are Syrian or Turkish — if you are gay you are everyone’s target.”

Turkey is currently under a three-month state of emergency after an attempted but failed coup to bring down the government.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters last month that the move was aimed at effectively and swiftly taking steps to “eliminate the threat to democracy… the rule of law and the rights and freedom of our citizens.”

Any Syrian refugee will tell the reader, sadly, that such majestic concepts are not intended to cover the safety and well-being of those who fled to Turkey believing it a place in which to take shelter and begin a new life.

That, they discovered, was just another question mark at best.

US Drone Targets ISIS Terrorist ‘ Jihadi John’ in Raqqa, Syria

Friday, November 13th, 2015

The United States targeted the British-accented Da’esh (ISIS) terrorist known as “Jihadi John” in a drone strike on the group’s headquarters in Raqqa on Thursday (Nov. 12).

U.S. officials could not confirm whether the terrorist actually died in the strike. Multiple news outlets reported, however, that he was “almost certainly killed,” according to The Washington Times.

“U.S. forces conducted an air strike in Raqqa, Syria, on Nov. 12, 2015 targeting Mohamed Emwazi, also known as ‘Jihadi John,” Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters at a briefing.

A subsequent news report broadcast on ABC News said “Emwazi was ‘eviscerated’ as he left a building in Raqqa, Syria, and entered a vehicle. The official called it a ‘clean hit’ with no collateral damage.”

The U.S. drone involved in the attack “had been tracking Emwazi for some time, watched him all day,” according to a senior American official quoted by Fox News.

Emwazi has been shown in several key ISIS videos behind a black mask, depicting the beheadings of Western hostages, including the murders of journalists Steven Sotloff (a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen) and James Foley, Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, U.S. aid worker Abdul-Rahman Peter Kassig, and British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, among others.

The terrorist was a former resident of London who emigrated to the UK from Kuwait at age six. He was two classes short of reaching his degree in business management at the University of Westminster.

Good Jewish Boy from Israel Tries to Join the ISIS

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

A Foreign Ministry statement Tuesday that an Israeli Jew has been returned home after trying to join the Islamic State (ISIS) leaves too many questions unanswered.

The facts that are known are simple: Turkish officials, despite far from loving relations with Israel, helped nab the 21-year-old man and return him home.

The family of the unidentified youth called the Foreign Ministry last week after their son flew to Crete as a stopover before traveling to Syria, where he would have violated Israeli law by setting foot in the territory of a declared enemy state.

That’s it. Happy ending, except perhaps for the youth.

As for Turkey, it is not surprising that it cooperated because it hates the ISIS much more than it hates Israel.

And now for the unanswered questions:

Is this young man a psychiatric case? Or does he simply live in a movie, albeit a horror film?

Did the ISIS have contact with him? Did the man promise to convert to Islam? Or has he? Did the ISIS plan to show him off as a Jew having found Allah?

Did he want to chop off peoples’ heads? Was he looking for sex slaves?

Did the 21-year-old man serve in the IDF? Is he angry at Israel as an “occupier?

Foreign Ministry spokesman told The Jewish Press Tuesday:

There is nothing to add to what we already have stated.

Our heartfelt concern goes out to the youth’s family, and may no other Jewish family know such sorrow.

‘Jihadi John’ Vows to Return to Britain and ‘Cut off Heads’

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

The Islamic State’s (ISIS) infamous beheader Mohammed “Jihadi John” Emwazi said on a video that he will return to his native Britain to “carry on cutting heads off,” the London Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The newspaper said it obtained the video, which reportedly fell in the hands of the Free Syrian Army and may have been filmed approximately two months ago in Syria, the first time he has been photographed unmasked. . The video shows a man claiming to be Jihadi John, dressed in black and wearing a cap under his hood. He announced in the video, with a clear British accent:

I will carry on cutting heads.

A Free Syrian Army activist told the Mail:

He looks at the camera and says, ‘I am Mohammed Emwazi. I will soon go back to Britain with the Khalifa’ [the leader of Islamic State].

He said something more about cutting heads off, ‘We will kill the kuffar.’ Then the camera shows two masked men that looked like bodyguards.

Jihdi John said that when he returns to Britain to chop off heads, he will spare “believers.”

Jihadi John is one of the world’s most wanted men with a $96 million bounty placed on his head by the United States for the bheading of Americans, the first of whom was James Foley last year.

ISIS-Linked Terrorist Decapitates Victim in Attack in France

Friday, June 26th, 2015

A terrorist carrying an ISIS flag beheaded at least one person and wounded several others in a savage attack on the offices of the French Air Products gas company southeast of Lyon Friday morning.

Police have captured the terrorist and possibly an accomplice, but not before they set off explosions with gas canisters. They were disguised as delivery men.

It was the first major attack in France since the murders of Jews at a kosher supermarket and the deadly attack on the offices of the Charles Hebdo magazine in January.

A woman called Sylvie who works opposite the factory told IBTimes:

Our company is just in front of Air Products and the explosion made our entire building vibrate.

There was no damage, but everything moved. I was on my chair on the phone with a clients when it happened.

ISIS Tweets Home Address of Pamela Geller

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

A tweet from a man in Britain believed to be a senior member of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted the home address of anti-radical Islam activist Pamela Geller, who is Jewish. The Jewish Press.com is not re-posting the information even though we have no ISIS readers, as far as we know.

She was targeted for beheading in a plot that was smashed two weeks ago when Boston policemen arrested two men who had planned to decapitate her but then decided to make policemen their first victims because they were “easier targets.”

The Twitter account “#GoForth,” from which the tweet was sent and which now has been suspended revealed Geller’s address and apartment number in New York City.

Geller rose to be U.S. Public Enemy No. 1 for the ISIS after she staged a contest in Texas in May for drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

She may soon have company in the form of New Hampshire resident and ex-marine Jerry DeLemus, who plans another “draw Mohammed” event in August.

He said last week:

I’m not worried about taking a risk. It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.

DeLemus told Maine’s WMTW:

I guarantee if there weren’t Muslims actually in this country actively trying to kill people for drawing pictures of Mohammad, I’d never have an art contest to draw Muhammad.

I’m not forcing anyone to come. That’s Sharia law. I’m sure they’ll know with the news media coverage there’s a risk involved.

He declared that he won’t allow offensive drawing and added:

It’s a political statement that we’re America, we’re free. And we can do things that offend one another.

As a Christian, they do all kinds of ugly things about my faith. But I’ve never wanted to kill someone about it. So I’m hoping it comes out peaceful. But I just want the dialog to be had.

Plenty of security will be on hand, and Geller now walks around with personal bodyguards because of death threats.

One of the suspects in the plot to behead Geller was killed when he pulled out an 8-inch military knife as he approached policemen who were preparing to arrest him for questioning.

Two others were charged on Friday for the plot. David Wright was arrested shortly after his co-conspirator Usaamah Rahim was killed, and the third suspect is Nicholas Rovinski, who was arrested on Thursday. He also goes under the name Amriki aka Nuh al Andalusi.

“Beginning at a date unknown but no later than May 2015, Wright, Rovinski and Rahim conspired to commit attacks and kill persons inside the United States, which they believed would support ISIL’s objectives,” according to a Dept. of Justice statement.

Rovinski and Wright face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years for conspiring to support the Islamic State.

Boston ISIS Terrorist Intended to Behead Pamela Geller

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.

Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.

Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.

She told CNN Wednesday:

They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?

Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:

 …Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.

Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.

Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:

I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”

A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”

A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:

Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:

We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:

We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?

The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.

No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.

That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.

She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.

Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”
