US-Led Air Strike Reportedly Hit No. 1 Leader of ISIS

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

A U.S.-led air strike on the ISIS may have critically injured or killed the top leader of the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization, Al-Arabiya television reported Saturday.

If true, it would be the most dramatic success in the war on terror since US Navy SEALs killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden three and a half years ago.

The Saudi-owned media said the radio was carried out on an Iraqi town near the Syrian border, where Reuters witnesses told Reuters senior ISIS terrorist leaders were meeting.

The leader of the ISIS is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, otherwise known as the “Invisible Sheikh” because of his absence from the public.

American officials have not commented except to say that an aerial strike bombed a convoy n an area more than 150 miles from the house where the ISIS meeting was meeting in the town that Al Arabiya said was bombed.

The United States has placed a $10 million bounty on Al-Baghdadi’s head

In two years, he has transformed the ISIS into a billion-dollar terrorist empire that makes $1 million a day from oil fields that its terrorists have captured in Iraq.

President Barack Obama on Friday authorized another 1,500 U.S. soldiers to be deployed in Iraq in the war against the ISIS. It seems the president, who campaigned in 2008 on an anti-war campaign, has discovered that one has to engage terrorists with bullets and bombs and not diplomacy and negotiations.

Israeli Doctor Joins ISIS, Gets Killed

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

The Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon announced Sunday morning that an Israeli Bedouin doctor who was doing his internship at the medical center is the same person who security sources said joined the Islamic State ISIS group of barbaric killers and was killed in fighting in August.

The doctor was identified as Alkian Othman, age 26, from the Bedouin city of Hura, located approximately 10 miles north of Be’er Sheva. His brother was arrested last April for helping him on his journey.

Barzilai officials searched for its resident doctor-turned-terrorist after he disappeared and discovered that he changed professions. Instead of saving lives, he preferred to end lives, and his case, it was his own.

Othman, who studied medicine in Jordan, was supposed to begin working in Israel’s Soroka Medical Center in May but suddenly disappeared.

“Security forces contacted us and searched for him,” Barzilai Hospital said in a statement on Sunday. “Then, we were informed that he chose to join ISIS.”

So much for a bright future.

He had plenty of other companions from Israel.

More than 30 Israeli Druze, Bedouin and Arabs, all of them with Israeli citizenship, have been enlisted in the ranks of ISIS after leaving the country for a “vacation” in Turkey and then moving to Syria.

“My son went to Syria last January, and we did not know what his intentions were,” said the father of Ahmed Havashi, from northern Israel, who also was killed in battle. “I told him this is not our religion; this is not the message of Islam,” the bereaved father added.

Syrian Rebels Claim They Overran Golan Spy Post Backed by Russians [video]

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

Syrian rebels have posted a YouTube claiming that they overran a spy post on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights that was partially manned by Russians.

The video, picked up by The Daily Beast shows includes insignia and other signs that the post was run by Syrian intelligence with help from Russia. The post probably was used to monitor communications between rebel forces but also might have been used to tune in on the Israeli side of the strategic Golan Heights.

Photos of the location of IDF units were found bit the Free Syrian Army (FSA), confirming reports from Israel earlier this year that Russia is even more deeply involved in the Assad regime than previously estimated. Russian insignia were seen in the YouTube.

An FSA official told The Daily Beast that its fighters spotted more than dozen Russians in the area before the FSA overran the post.

Mark Galeotti, an expert on Russia’s military and intelligence services at New York University was quoted as saying that Russian advisers probably were “running an operation for detailed radio technical intelligence; we are not talking about intercepting telemetry and aircraft.”

With the ISIS advancing in northern Syria and closing in on cities in Iraq, including Baghdad, it is safe to assume that Israel would have preferred that Assad forces, even with the presence of Russian personnel, man a spy post across from the Israeli border instead of its being operated by rebels who just as easily could be overrun by Al Qaeda or ISIS jihadists.

Israeli Arab Who Joined ISIS Killed in Iraq

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

An Arab citizen form Israel who left his home in the Galilee this year and joined the ISIS has been killed in fighting in Iraq.

He was identified as 23-year-old Hamed Mohammed Habashi, 23, who is believed to have traveled to Turkey and to Syria.

Other Israeli Arab also have joined the Islamic State, which is a magnet for jihadists to help fulfil the ISIS aim of turning Israel into a Muslim country that is to be part of an Islamic Caliphate.

Hamas is mild stuff compared with ISIS in terms bravado, making it attractive to wannabe gung-ho jihadists.

“Unfortunately, lately we’ve been hearing about a lot of youths and men of religion who support the Islamic State. I don’t understand this. This is an organization that must be classified as a first-class terror organization,” A Galilee Muslim cleric told Yediot Acharonot.

As previously reported, several Arabs from Israel, including some from Judea and Samaria, have joined Al Qaeda and rebel forces fighting Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

ISIS flags are the new rage in Israel, and several have been seen flying in Israeli cities.

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.

Canadian ISIS Fighter Threatens to Behead Netanyahu [video]

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

A Canadian who joined ISIS in Iraq threatened to behead Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Abu Usamah Somali, thought to be Canadian Farah Mohamed Shirdon of Calgary and who had been considered killed showed up in an interview with ViceNews.com and said “maybe” ISIS will stop fighting after lopping off the Prime Minister’s head.

Somali, 21, added, unsurprisingly, that President Barack Obama also is targeted.

He mocked Canadian authorities as “imbeciles” for not preventing him from leaving the country. “I can’t believe how someone that has extremist terrorist ideologies was sitting in front of you and you didn’t catch them. The next time they saw me, they saw me ripping up my passport,” he said in the video interview conducted by Vice News’ Shane Smith, who aid the ISIS terrorist was located in Mosul, Iraq.

Somali claimed he left Canada on his own initiative. “No one spoke a single word to me. All I did, I opened the newspaper I read the Qur’an — very easy,” he said.

Much of what ISIS’ new YouTube star can be discounted as exaggerated, such as his claim that the terrorist group has 15,000 foreign fighters.

He boasted that ISIS has “a lot of brothers are mobilizing right now” in New York who are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack, my friend.”

One statement was 100 percent true. When Smith asked Somali who is ISIS’ enemy, answered, “The world.”

His threat to behead Netanyahu can be seen and heard at 7:40 in the video below.
