US Says ISIS Video of Kassig Execution Likely Authentic

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

United States intelligence officials say that a video posted to the Internet showing an executioner dressed in black, standing over the severed head of a man he identified as that of American foreign aid worker Peter Kassig, is authentic.

The footage is markedly unlike that of previous beheadings by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in that the moments leading up to the execution and that of the murder itself are not seen. Clearly something took place to prevent the terrorists from showing those events; perhaps Kassig resisted — or perhaps an attack by U.S.-led coalition forces interrupted the flow of the scene.

Nevertheless, a senior American official said Sunday the government became increasingly convinced throughout the day that the video is authentic and accurately shows that Kassig was executed by an ISIS terrorist.

The camera work was amateurish as compared with that of previous videos. The footage was shot with only one camera angle and the lighting appeared harsh, blocking a clear view of the face of the executioner.

Unlike previous five minute productions in which the victims were forced to make speeches prior to their ritualized beheading, it appeared that Kassig’s two minute execution was curtailed, suggesting that ISIS could be in trouble and perhaps on the run.

One week ago, its top leadership was attacked in an air strike by American and Iraqi jets during a meeting in a secret bunker in northern Iraq. At least 10 commanders were killed and 40 others were wounded, including the British-accented executioner who appeared in this and the four prior beheading videos, dubbed by media as “Jihadi John.”

U.S. National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said earlier in the day that “if confirmed, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American aid worker, and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends.”

Kassig, a former Army Ranger from Indianapolis, was abducted at a checkpoint in Syria more than a year ago while delivering medical supplies as part of his work for the Syrian refugee aid organization he founded in Beirut in 2012. He had served a tour of duty in Iraq in 2007, and returned to the service in 2011 as an emergency medical technician (EMT) in Libya.

In a letter smuggled out to his parents by a cell mate who escaped by ransom, Kassig wrote, “I am obviously pretty scared to die, but the hardest part is not knowing, wondering… if I should even hope at all.

“Just know I’m with you. Every stream, every lake, every field and river. In the woods and in the hills, in all the places you showed me. I love you.”

ISIS Now Crucifiying Their Own People

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Back in May, JewishPress.com first reported that ISIS had begun crucifying their enemies. Looking back, before beheadings were apparently even part of the ISIS repertoire, that seemed brutal.

Fast forward just a few months, to now. ISIS has begun crucifying not just its enemies, but also its own fighters and people who break Sharia or ISIS laws, including the crime of usury (charging interest on loans), according to a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It’s not clear if ISIS is also beheading their victims in addition to publicly hanging them up on a cross.

Lebanon’s Daily Star reports that over the weekend ISIS crucified a man they accused of filming their headquarters. They claim he wanted to sell the video to make some money. The man was executed, though it is unclear if the execution was through beheading. His body was crucified for three days.

The truth is, ISIS is hardly alone in the beheading or crucifixion business. In 2014, Newsweek reports that US ally Saudi Arabia beheaded 59 people, and in special cases, the Saudis then crucified the victim too, leaving them hanging on a pole for days. More than half the Saudi executions were after this past Ramadan.

It’s a Muslim thing.

ISIS Threatens Twitter CEO & Staff, Executes Iraqi Journalist

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Terrorists of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) last week threatened to murder Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and his staff.

The reason?

The social media site shut down terrorists’ accounts for violating the site’s terms of service. Promoting terrorism, and discussions of related criminal activity is a violation of Twitter’s terms of services. When the site shut down accounts that didn’t observe the rules, terrorists threatened to “assassinate” the Twitter staff, Costolo told Vanity Fair.

“It’s against the law in many of the countries in which we operate for them to use it to promote their organization,” Costolo said. “And when we do find those accounts we shut them down. We shut them down quite actively.”

ISIS has used Twitter before. Fighters have posted selfies on the site for various purposes — including matrimonial! — but the group also tweeted a murderous threat against the U.S. in August, taunting, “We are in your cities.”

Meanwhile, Iraqi journalist Ra’ad al-Azzawi was murdered by ISIS on Saturday, according to colleagues who circulated the news on Twitter, including Arab affairs reporter Khaled Abu Toameh.

“This is tragic. Thoughts are with Mr. Al-Azzawi, his family and friends,” tweeted one person. “Being a ‘journalist’ can be seen as being a spy in shariah (sic), so you can’t blame ISIS without understanding #Islam” tweeted another.

Azzawi, a father of three, worked as an Iraqi news cameraman for the local news channel Sama Salaheddin. He was threatened by ISIS after he refused to work for the jihadist organization, and was detained by the group on September 7.

The Iraqi journalist and his brother, as well as two other people were publicly executed in the village of Samra, east of Tikrit, Aljazeera reported. A total of at least 16 victims were executed in northern Iraq on Saturday.

U.S. humanitarian worker Peter Kassig, who converted to Islam in captivity and became Abdul-Rahman Kassig, is now being held by ISIS and is being threatened with execution next.

Pakistan Taliban Declares Allegiance to ISIS

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

In Pakistan, the Taliban has declared allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The Taliban ordered its terrorists across the region this weekend to help ISIS build a worldwide caliphate, a global state ruled by Islam.

ISIS has begun to penetrate into southern Asia, particularly in Pakistan and Afghanistan, in addition to the territory it has conquered in northern Iraq and Syria.

The announcement, which also marked the Muslim holy festival of Eid al-Adha, was released by the Taliban in Urdu, Pashto and Arabic. It came immediately after a video posted Friday showing the beheading of UK foreign aid worker Alan Henning.

It also followed a declaration in September by Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri, who named former Taliban commander Asim Umar as “emir” of Al Qaeda’s new branch in south Asia.

ISIS Beheading of British Citizen Wakes Up Cameron

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

The British government finally woke up and vowed to destroy ISIS after the radical Islamic group posted on Friday a video that purported to show the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning Friday.

It was the fourth time ISIS, AKA Islamic State and lately IS, has posted a video of beheadings, the first ones being American journalists James Foley and afterwards a Jew, Steven Sotloff.

Britain, like all European countries, is being overwhelmed with a burgeoning Muslim population, and the fundamentalists, whether a majority or a minority, have hijacked the new demographics and already has established Sharia law as the supreme law in some communities.

The more the Muslim demographic revolution overruns countries such as Belgium and France, the more the governments are afraid to do anything that might upset them and cause violence. The more they refrain, the more the radicals show their presence through fear.

Fear is the biggest weapon of radical Islamists, and ISIS has mastered the strategy through beheadings. It is more brutal than simply hanging or shooting someone in the back of the head, but the end result is the same. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tries and tries, so far unsuccessfully, to convince the world that ISIS and Hamas are one and the same. The West doesn’t buy it because doing so would ruin the peace process sham.

Everyone denies reality until it happens to close to home.

ISIS gave advance notice to Britain that British aid worker Henning was next in line, and the British Parliament last promptly voted to join the American-led coalition to strike ISI in Iraq, which the Royal Air Force bombed on Saturday.

Friday’s video sows the ISIS executioner, apparently the same British-accented so-called human being who decapitated three previous victims. It also shows Henning, with his tied behind his back.

“Because of our parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic state, I, as a member of the British public, will now pay the price,” Henning said in the video.

Cameron now is boiling.

“It is senseless. It is completly unforgivable. Anyone in any doubt about this organization can now see how truly repulsive it is and barbaric it is,” he said Saturday.

Good morning, Mr. Cameron.

Arkansas Shooting Range Declares Itself ‘Muslim-Free Zone’

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The woman owner of the Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas has declared her territory a “Muslim-free zone” because of domestic terror by Muslims.

Jan Morgan posted on her website 10 reasons to support her new policy, which is certain to be challenged in the courts.

Lawyers are going to make a lot of money over this.

One of her arguments is that the United States refused to classify several murders as acts of terrorism, particularly last week’s beheading by a Muslim convert in Oklahoma, the attack by a Muslim on Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon bombing carried out two years ago by two Muslims.

Morgan also wrote that two Muslim men, speaking in broken English, came to her range recently and asked to rent and practice with semi-automatic rifles and ammunition but could not provide identification other than a California’s driver’s license.

She agreed to rent one weapon but removed all other customers from the range while the two men shot.

Morgan is preparing for lawsuits charging her with discrimination.

Following are her 10 reasons for a “Muslim-free zone,” complete with her spelling of “Muslim” with a small ”m.”

1) The Koran, which I have read and studied thoroughly and (which all muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam….

2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by muslims who are angry that I have studied their koran and have, over the past two years, been exposing the vileness of the Koran and its murderous directives.

3) The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a muslim;

* the Boston bombings(by muslims)

* the Fort Hood mass shooting (by a muslim) that killed 13 people and injured over 30 people

* and the murder of 3000 innocent people (by muslims) on 9/11

This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate my position that muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

4) Because the nature of my business involves firearms and shooting firearms in an enclosed environment, my patrons are not comfortable being around muslims who align themselves with a religion that clearly commands hate, murder, and violence against all non muslims…..

5) My range rents and sells guns to my patrons. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?

6) * Muslims, who belong to and, or, support ISIS, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.

* Muslims, who belong to or support AL Qaeda, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.

* Muslims who belong to or support HAMAS are threatening to kill innocent Americans….

7) I not only have the right to refuse service but a RESPONSIBILITY to provide a safe environment for people to shoot and train on firearms. I can and have turned people away if I sense they are under the influence of alcohol or mind altering drugs. I have a federal firearms license…

The ATF informed us when we received the license that if we feel any reason for concern about selling someone a firearm, even sense that something is not right about an individual, or we are concerned about that persons mental state, even if they pass a background check, we do not have to sell that person a gun.

In other words, a federal agency has given us this kind of discretion for service based on the nature of the business. I can and have turned people away if I sense an issue with their mental state. So… it’s difficult to imagine how the DOJ could have issues with this when ATF gave us this discretion.

8) I have no way of looking at Islam other than as a theocracy, not a religion. Islam is undoubtedly the union of political, legal, and religious ideologies. In other words law, religion and state are forged together to form what Muslims refer to as “The Nation of Islam.” Once again it is given the sovereign qualities of a nation with clerics in the governing body and Sharia law all in one. This is a Theocracy, not a religion.

The US Constitution does not protect a theocracy. The 1st Amendment is very specific about protecting the rights of individuals from the government, as it concerns the practice of religions, not theocracies. It clearly differentiates between government and religion. Again protecting the individual’s religious beliefs and practices from (the state) government. In Islam religion and state are one.

We are a Nation governed by laws, or the law of the land the U.S. Constitution. We are not a Nation that is governed by religion, politicians or clerics.

How then, can anyone say that, the practice of Islam is protected by the U.S. Constitution?

The muslim brotherhood has a documented plan for the destruction of America from within, discovered by our own government during a raid of MB operatives in America. In addition, I am very cognizant of the civilization jihad under way in my country by American muslims. In a number of states Muslims, through our legal system, are trying to force us to accept Sharia Law over Constitutional law. I do not wish to do business with people who stand against the Constitution and are fighting to replace it.

9) Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children, (honor killing) if the behavior of those children embarrasses or dishonors the family name. ( did you know that dating outside of the faith is justification for murdering their daughters and this has already occurred on American soil?) Why would I want people (who believe it’s okay to murder their own children), be in the presence of other children? My patrons often bring their kids to the range to teach them to shoot. I am responsible for providing a safe environment for those children to learn gun safety and shooting sports.

10) In the 14 hundred year history of Islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people. Not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists in the world right now are muslim. Since you can’t determine by visual assessment, which ones will kill you and which ones will not, I am going to go with the line of thought that ANY HUMAN BEING who would either knowingly or unknowingly support a “religion” that commands the murder of all people who refuse to submit or convert to that religion, is not someone I want to know or do business with. I hold adults accountable for the religion they align themselves with.

In summary, I not only have the right, but a responsibility to provide a safe environment for my customers. I do not believe my decision is religious discrimination because I do not classify islam as a religion.. It is a theocracy/terrorist organization that hides behind the mask of religion in order to achieve its mission of world domination.

People who shoot at my range come from all religious backgrounds… some are atheists… I do not care about their religious beliefs. I care about the safety of my customers who come to shoot here….

I will do whatever is necessary to provide a safe environment for my customers, even at the cost of the increased threats and legal problems this decision will likely provoke.

Muslim Teen ‘Wants to Behead Jews’ in Netherlands

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

A 14-year-old Muslim teen of Balkan descent has been suspended from De Spindle high school in the eastern Netherlands city of Hengelo uploaded a video in which he threatened Jewish women.

“Hi, I am from ISIS and I would like to cut off the heads of Jews,” “Ilhan M.” is seen saying, according to a report published Saturday in the De Telegraaf daily newspaper, quoted by JTA. He followed up that announcement with a string of profanities about Jewish women.

“Ilhan” was suspended after police discovered via a faculty report that he owned a prop gun. “The big question now is, how seriously should we take him?” said a ‘terrified’ student quoted by the newspaper. “What if he really means it? He will not be the first extremist Muslim youth in the Netherlands in the grip of ISIS….” said another.

While police played down the incident, calling it a “misguided action,” they nevertheless did not dismiss it despite anxiety by the students that their fears were being taken lightly.

Security officials in the Netherlands are becoming concerned about the number of Dutch citizens who have traveled abroad to fight for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Approximately 100 such people were fighting in Syria as of this summer, according to an estimate by the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service, AIVD.

Concerns are growing about the battle-ready jihadists who may then return and carry out other, similar attacks on local citizens, including Jewish targets.

Similar issues are being raised in other European countries across the continent, as well as in other nations around the globe – including Australia and Canada. Both recently enacted legislation to prevent the return of those who decide to leave their countries in order to fight with the jihadist terror organization.
