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.

French National Abducted by ISIS Algerian Terror Group

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

A French citizen has become the fifth person to be abducted and threatened with execution by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS.)

The Algerian “Soldiers of the Caliphate” announced Tuesday they would execute Hervé Gourdel in 24 hours if France does withdraw from the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS. The group is called Jund al-Khilafah in Arabic and split from Al Qaeda’s North African branch, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) according to the Qatar-based Al Jazeera news network. Its members swore loyalty to ISIS earlier this month.

The group announced its plans in a video uploaded to the internet in which Gourdel, age 55, is seen seated between two masked, armed men. “We, the Caliphate Soldiers in Algeria, in compliance with the order of our leader Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi … give Hollande, president of the criminal French state, 24 hours to cease its hostility against the Islamic State, otherwise the fate of his citizen will be slaughter. To save his life, you must officially announce the end of your hostility against the Islamic State,” a speaker on the video said.

Addressing French President Francois Hollande directly, Gourdel said in the video, “This armed group has asked me to demand that you do not intervene in Iraq. They are holding me hostage. I beg you, Monsieur Président, to do all in your power to get me out of this bad situation. I thank you.”

The video has been confirmed to be authentic by the French government, which said it was doing everything possible to track down Gourdel, a resident of Nice working as a mountain guide. He was in Algeria as a tourist, though, when he was kidnapped, traveling in a car in the region of Tziz Ouzou with two local Algerian guides when the vehicle was stopped by a group of masked gunmen. His two guides were set free.

ISIS has beheaded two American journalists and a British aid worker in Raqqa, Syria. A second British aid worker, Alan Henning, is so far still alive; both his wife and Muslims around the world have appealed to ISIS to free him, insisting that he has been “peaceful” and a “friend to the Ummah.” 

Muslims Plead with ISIS for Life of UK Aid Worker Alan Henning

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Muslims around the world are advocating for the life of British aid worker Alan Henning, who is being held hostage and whose life is threatened by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization.

A tweet late Saturday night on the Twitter social networking site encapsulated the myriad responses to rumors that Henning may have already been executed by the group:

“ISIS threatening to kill Alan Henning, a man who’s done more benefit for the Ummah than majority of the Muslims fact!”

Unconfirmed reports had trickled out from Raqqa, Syria, that ISIS had beheaded Henning on Saturday, but the source of the rumors was not clear. No official announcement was made by the terrorist group.

A report was posted by a Syrian advocacy organization in Raqqa on Facebook, saying “some troops from ISIS drove another captive in orange uniform like the US and British reporters were dressed to the hill across from the site where they beheaded James Foley… a man holding a knife was along with him. We believe it’s the same person who executed the reporters before.

“ISIS beheaded this captive at 7:50 am and many cars went with them; one of the cars was carrying a big TV camera in it. ISIS closed all the roads leading to Deir Ezzor, the north, the south and the one which leads to the desert before and during the beheading – around 30 cars surrounded the hill where this captive was beheaded, three cameras were rolling on the surrounding areas…

“We noticed a Nissan red station and a black 4×4…in this black car there was another captive who was protected with many ISIS troops.”

On the Twitter social networking site, angry rumors continued to fly.

“I’m sure it’ll be confirmed soon enough. Betrayed by the very people he tried to help,” wrote one person in a bitter tweet on the Twitter social networking site Saturday night.

“Betrayed by who?” responded another, clearly upset. “They are not Muslims, stop associating them with us.”

Many Muslim groups have made it a point to dissociate themselves from ISIS and to underline their view that the terrorist group has “nothing to do with Islam.”

A group of 49 hostages from Turkey’s Consulate in Mosul was forced by their ISIS captors to watch videos of the beheading of two Americans and one British citizen during the 101 they were held.

The hostages were returned to Turkey via Syria on Saturday by Turkish intelligence agents through a special arrangement with the Iraqis.

Rescued Turkish Consul General of Mosul Ozturk Yilmaz told journalists, “They made us watch the beheadings. There is no reason to kill like this, not for any religion or political thought.” He denounced the killing of James Foley, Steven Sotloff (a dual American-Israeli citizen) and David Haines (a UK citizen) as “cruelty.”

Hamas Arrests 15 More “Collaborators”

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

On Wednesday, NRG reported that Hamas in Gaza arrested another 15 suspected “collaborators” with Israel.

If found guilty by Hamas (100% likely), they will most likely be executed (but probably not in public like the previous executions held last week).

UPDATE: Hamas Executes 21 Arabs in Gaza

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Please see important update at the end of the article regarding the photos originally published in this article.

The Islamic terror organization, Hamas, publicly executed 11 Gazans in Gaza City on Friday morning at 10am.

UPDATE 2:15pm: 7 more Gazans were executed on Friday afternoon. We just learned that 3 Gazans were executed yesterday. for a total of 21 Gazans executed by Hamas in the past 24 hours.

The 11 executed Arabs were accused of treason by Hamas. A Hamas security official claims the 11 had been tried in a Hamas court.

Hamas accused them of trying to overthrow Hamas by collaborating with Israel.

Hamas has warned Gazans to not publicize the names of the executed, as presumably they want to include them in the list of people killed in Operation Protective Edge. Their bodies were moved to Shifa hospital after the executions.

Hamas is currently running an internal operation to seek out and execute every Gazan they suspect is trying to overthrow Hamas or collaborate with Israel, which of course is a good cover for killing off any political opponents.

On Friday afternoon, Hamas executed an additional 7 Gazans outside the Omari Mosque after prayers.

It’s important to note, that unlike ISIS, Hamas did not behead their victims when killing them. They shot some.

Apparently to some, this is a very important distinction.

Hamas Executed Dozens of Terror Tunnel Excavators

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Over the past few weeks, Hamas executed dozens of tunnel excavators, according to a Mako report.

A source in Gaza, familiar with the tunnel industry, told Mako that Hamas suspected these tunnel diggers had information on the location on the tunnels, including their entrances and exits. Hamas was afraid the diggers could have passed the information on these tunnel to Israel.

The source said that most of the workers who dug the tunnels did not know their actual locations.

Truckloads of blindfolded workers were brought inside buildings, and searched to make sure they had no phones, cameras or GPS devices on them. They were not allowed outside as they dug the tunnels, so they would not know their exact location.

The Hamas terrorists were always masked so the workers couldn’t identify them.

The workers were paid between $150 to $300 a month for 8 to 12 hour shifts. The workers employed were the professional (smuggling) tunnel diggers from the Rafah and Khan Younis areas.

At the end of the tunnels construction, Hamas murdered dozens of the tunnel diggers they suspected as collaborators with Israel, even if just based on rumor.

Some were murdered when it was discovered they simply had previous connections to Israeli civilians.

The Gazan source said that Hamas was “very cruel”.

A 2012 report said that at least 160 children were killed while digging out the terror tunnels for Hamas.

During Operation Protective Edge, Israel captured 300 terrorists, including dozens that were involved in digging the tunnels or part of the rocket launch crews.

Hamas to Celebrate End of Ramadan with Mass Public Executions

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

There’s no better way to celebrate the end Ramadan than with mass executions, or at least that’s what Hamas believes.

Timed to coincide with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr, Hamas plans to publicly execute anywhere up up to 40 people they claim are criminals, who “confessed” to their crimes after being severely tortured, according to a report in YNet. The stated goal of the executions is to help maintain public security.

The last executions in Gaza took place in June 2013, when Hamas executed two people it claimed were collaborating with Israel.

Israel on the other hand, does not execute Gazan terrorists, and instead frees them in exchange for talks with the Palestinian Authority.
