ISIS Executes 19 Women and Girls for Refusing ‘Sexual Jihad’

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

Nineteen girls and women were executed in Iraq over the weekend by Da’esh (ISIS) for refusing to participate in “sexual jihad” with terrorists in Mosul, Iraq.

The execution was reported Monday by Said Mimousini, a spokesman for the Kurdish Democratic Party in Mosul in an interview with Iraqi News.

Many Yazidi and Christian girls and women were captured by the terrorists last year and sold as sex slaves. But the practice may also prove the undoing of the group: Mimousini said there have been splits in the ranks in Mosul and internal conflicts over money and the distribution of women.

Girls who have somehow managed to escape the clutches of Da’esh have told media of how they were forced to marry ISIS fighters, and how they were physically and sexually abused.

As many as 3,000 women and girls having been taken captive from the Yazidi tribe in Iraq alone. In addition, Da’esh has captured and enslaved numerous other minorities in the territories it has seized.

Last October, ISIS published a brochure showing the prices for the purchase of female slaves.

The price tariff is simple; the older they are the cheaper they are, RT Novosti reported. “All prices are quoted in Iraqi Dinars but U.S. dollar equivalent shows that radical fighters can get children aged 1 to 9 for about $165, prices for adolescent girls are $124 and it’s less for women over 20. Women over 40 cost as little as $41.”

Last year Da’esh also produced a manual containing rules about how female slaves, women and children should be treated by its fighters.

During this past Ramadan, the group launched a contest to encourage its fighters and followers to memorize Qur’an passages, using young girls as prizes for the top winners.

Zainab Bangura, a United Nations envoy for sexual violence in conflict, is investigating the group’s sex trade. Bangura said “girls are peddled like barrels of petrol,” according to the UK-based Daily Mail, adding that “one can be bought by six different men.”

There is even a marriage bureau which organizes all of these ‘marriages’ and the sale of women, Bangura said.

However, occasionally ISIS will also sell the girls back to their families as well. “Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom,” Bangura said. Valerie Amos, UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief, added that women and girls as young as 12 are enslaved and sexually abused.

“Kurdish refugees from Kobane report the capture of young girls there for sexual purposes, girls as young as 12,” she said.

Amos added there has also been a rise in the incidence of forced marriage, due in part to the rise in family poverty.

More to the point, however, families are terrified of losing their daughters to ISIS fighters in areas under their control – a phenomenon she called a “war crime.”

“ISIS has carried out mass victimization of civilians including murder, enslavement, rape, forcible displacement and torture, and has violated its obligation towards civilians,” Amos said.

She was particularly damning of the sluggish response of the international community to enforcing Security Council Resolution 2139 which passed in February of this year. The resolution outlined a number of basic human rights demands that opposition fighters and the Syrian government are required to follow.

Obviously, no one has paid any attention to the resolution since its passage.

Foreign Ministry Calls Sunni Arab Nations ‘Israel’s Allies’

Thursday, July 30th, 2015


Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama dreamed about a “new Middle East” under the leadership of the United States. They were dead wrong.

They may have fantasized that they could make peace between Israel and Sunni Muslim states, the foremost being Saudi Arabia, but their worst nightmares did not envision such an alliance being formed in opposition to none other than the United States.

Dore Gold, director of Israel’s Foreign Ministry and former Ambassador to the United Nations, finally spelled out on Wednesday what Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has whispered for months. The Muslims and the Jews have two common problems. One is an enemy, meaning Iran, which threatens to rule an Islamic Caliphate with or without a nuclear weapon.

The other problem is the Obama administration, which is appeasing the enemy.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has stated several times that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in making sure that Iran does reach nuclear weapons capability. Gold went a lot farther in his message last night to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

Referring to Iran, he said:

What we have is a regime on a roll that is trying to conquer the Middle East and it’s not Israel talking, that is our Sunni Arab neighbors — and you know what? I’ll use another expression – that is our Sunni Arab allies talking.


What happened to the “unshakeable bond” between the United States and Israel? It is there as long as people believe it. An era does not in a day, and American Jews will believe in that “unshakeable bond” for a long time to come because it makes them feel good.

And isn’t it President Barack Obama who is ready help arm Israel once again, after having forced it to be armed to the teeth by surrendering to many of Iran’s terms in his ObamaDeal, which Israel and the Sunni Arabs are certain is nothing more than a well-paved diplomatic road to hell?

Americans are too far away from the shores of the Middle East to feel the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran the way Jews in Israel and Muslims in the Gulf States feel it.

If Israel and its “allies” were to get it through the State Dept.’s thick skull that a nuclear-armed Iran is no less of a threat to the United States that it is to the United States, perhaps Americans would worry a bit more about Tehran and less about Mexican immigrants, homosexual marriages and Donald Trump.

Gold was upbeat, or at least tried to sound that way, about future relations between Israel and the United States in the likely event that Congress will not be able to ditch ObamaDeal.

He said:

We will find a practical way to come up with solutions to a very dangerous situation. But in the meantime we have to tell what we think about this agreement. We have to say the truth even though it’s unpleasant.

It also may be very unpleasant for President Obama amid his successor to realize that  their influence in the Middle East is dwindling. President Obama was overjoyed at the Arab Spring rebellions for “democracy,” which in the Muslim Middle East means “anarchy” and which was the reality for too long a time in Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria. Iraq is a lost cause.

Obama may have reached out Muslims, but he grabbed a handful of radical Islam that now threatens more than half the world.

He, like most other American politicians, assumes that Israel has no choice but to rely on the “unshakeable bond” with the United States.

The Iran-Iraq War in 3 Minutes

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

The Iran-Iraq war in 3 minutes – a short history, not because someone used a nuclear weapon.

After 8 years of fighting, Iran likes to claim they won the war, but they didn’t… unless you count how they undermined the United States’ later efforts to rebuild Iraq.

Iran Celebrates ObamaDeal with Chants of ‘Death to America

Saturday, July 18th, 2015

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei led tens led tens of thousands of Iranians to scream “death to America” and “death to Israel chants Saturday, five days after  the United States and five other world powers reached agreement on a nuclear deal.

Khamenei did not specifically criticize or praise the agreement, leading American pundits to conclude that he was just letting off steam to please the hard-liners., and so what if President Barack Obama hailed an agreement with a country that loves to hate?

Khamenei spoke on national television on Saturday, during the Eid a-Ftir celebrations concluding the daily fasts in the Muslim month of Ramadan, and poured salt on the fresh wound President Barack Obama has suffered in his weak defense of the deal.

Khamenei told throngs in Tehran:

Our policy regarding the arrogant U.S. government will not change. We don’t have any negotiations or deal with the U.S. on different issues in the world or the region.

Whether [the deal is] ratified or not, we will not give up on our friends in the region.

And who are his friends? For starters there is Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, who owes his life to Iran for remaining alive, at least for the time being. And then there is Hezbollah, for which ObamaDeal is a multi-billion bonanza for buying even more missiles to aim at Israel and to fund terrorist attacks against Jews around the world.

Khamenei’s appearance dispels reports that he is about to die from cancer. His performance Saturday was at least par for the course in his making President Obama look like a dishrag. Congress may confirm the agreement, but Khamenei is going to embarrass the president as much as possible.

The Supreme Leader of Iran bragged that the United States has no other choice “but to tolerate the spinning of a few thousand centrifuges” in Iran.

President Obama last week admitted that the United States made foreign policy mistakes by backing a coup in 1953 and backing Iraq’s Saddam Hussein in the eight-year with Iran in the 1980s.

The admission gave Khamenei an opening that he stretched, saying:

He [Obama] mentioned two or three points but did not confess to tens of others. I am telling you, you are making a mistake now, in different parts of this region, but especially about the Iranian nation. Wake up, Stop making mistakes. Understand the reality.

Isn’t it interesting that Obama is getting the same message from Israel, Saudi Arabia and more than half of Congress?

Below is a video from CNN of Khamenei’s speech and the hate chants.

Israeli Dentist Mends Peacekeeping Canine

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

“Dano” was wounded in action. The Multinational Force turned to a Hebrew University veterinarian.

A Hebrew University veterinarian has saved Dano, a 7-year-old Malinois (short-haired Belgian Shepherd Dog), whose military service includes two tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, where his responsibilities included explosives detection.

While serving in Afghanistan, Dano was wounded in action, fracturing his left upper canine tooth, known as fang to those who have been bitten.

The tooth was treated by a root canal therapy and filling, and Dano was re-assigned to the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai, whose peacekeeping responsibilities received a mandate from Egypt and Israel to supervise the implementation of the military Annex to their 1979 Peace Treaty.

Several weeks ago, trouble struck again for Dano, who re-fractured his tooth while on duty. Suffering from an exposed nerve, Dano needed immediate attention, but the medical care he needed was not available at his camp.

The MFO recently established contact with the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), where students of the Hebrew University’s Koret School of Veterinary Medicine receive their clinical training. It is the only hospital in Israel with modern facilities and equipment staffed by more than 45 veterinarians and a comprehensive range of internationally and nationally recognized specialists.

Along with a doctor, veterinarian and dog handler, Dano traveled from the Sinai Peninsula to the VTH and he met Dr. Yoav Bar-Am, the only board certified veterinary dentist and oral surgeon in Israel.

Dr. Bar-Am put the bite back in this K-9.

After Dano received general anesthesia, his dental radiographs and mouth were carefully evaluated. Dr. Bar-Am found that although Dano’s tooth had fractured and the filling was lost, the previous root canal remained intact. So Dr. Bar-Am re-shaped the contour of the tooth, smoothed the sharp edges of the fracture line, and prepared and placed a composite filling that matched the tooth’s natural color.

Dr. Bar-Am, who has operated on U.S. and Israeli working dogs in both the United States and Israel, said that “for a working dog, we attempt to do heroic things to save the tooth so they can continue to go about their jobs,”

Thanks to the treatment he received, Dano and his Peacekeeping team were able to go home the same day and return to full duty.

“This is the first time Dano has been medevac’d,” said Staff Sgt. John Breyer, military working dog handler who has been paired with Dano for four years. “The standard for these dogs is to have a high level of care.”

ISIS Islamic Law on Libya that Obama Invaded to Save It from Radicals

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) is deepening its stake in Sirte, Libya and has posted billboards that warn women to wear the burka and get rid of sins, such as perfumed clothes and garments that bear brand names.

Violation of the ISIS orders could result in barbaric punishment.

The ISIS explains that Sharia law helps women so that do not descend into the pit of vulgarity by attracting lurid eyes of the opposite sex.

Some shopkeepers in ISIS-held cities have been ordered to put veils on their mannequins.

The billboards, in Arabic, warn women against see-through and loose-fitting clothes, and to cover all body parts. They may not wear clothes with name brands or clothes worn by men or non-believers in Islam. Designs on clothes also are forbidden lest they attract attention. Ditto for perfumed clothes.

This is the same Sirte that is the hometown of Muammar Qaddafi, who was in the cross hairs by President Barack Obama when he invaded Libya in 2011. He got rid of Qaddafi, and now what is left of Libya is trying to get rid of the Islamic State. Seven more civilians and soldiers were killed in Benghazi on Tuesday.

Remember Benghazi? Hillary Clinton wishes you don’t remember. That is where terrorists murdered U.S.  Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in an attack. Clinton has hidden her Benghazi-related e-mails under her private account.

Benghazi now is a theatre of street warfare between the army and the ISIS.

President Barack Obama also might want to forget about Libya. After criticizing  previous American invasions, here is what he said in 2011 when he ordered the invasion into Libya:

In just one month, the United States has worked with our international partners to mobilize a broad coalition, secure an international mandate to protect civilians, stop an advancing army, prevent a massacre, and establish a no-fly zone with our allies and partners.

To lend some perspective on how rapidly this military and diplomatic response came together, when people were being brutalized in Bosnia in the 1990s, it took the international community more than a year to intervene with air power to protect civilians.  It took us 31 days.

It took the United States only 31 days to “protect” civilians and clear the way for anarchy, followed by the Islamic State (ISIS), a carbon copy of the ouster of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. His exit was encouraged by President Obama and followed by anarchy and the brutal rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, now replaced by the equally brutal Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi regime.

ISIS no longer is a local terrorist group redistricted to Iraq and Syria. Besides its affiliate in the Sinai, it has established a strong army in Libya.

One Benghazi-based activist, speaking on condition of anonymity, told IBTimes that many jihadi groups “have given allegiance to the Islamic State because there is virtually no Ansar Al-Sharia now; they have all converted to become Islamic State.

“Islamic State has franchised its ideology and fighters began joining it here at the beginning of this year. As the period of this conflict has worn on, more foreign fighters have come to Benghazi.”

ISIS Detonation 101: Booby-Trapping and Detonating Infant

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

As part of its training course on detonation devices, an infant was wired with explosives and detonated in Iraq by the brutal terrorist organization ISIS.

The story, reported in Iraqi News, is just one more example of the depravity exhibited by ISIS and its adherents. And yet, jihadi-wannabes continue to ooze into the territories controlled by ISIS.

The infant who was murdered as part of the ISIS teaching session, was apparently the child of a man executed earlier in the month by the terrorist organization.

“The available information indicates that ISIS brought a baby, the son of a civilian [who] was executed a few weeks ago under the charges of killing ISIS militants, in one of the training camps near Sharqat northern Salahuddin,” an Iraqi local official said.

The child was blown up using a remote detonator. The explosion took place in front of dozens of ISIS members.

According to Western Journalism, thousands of children have been recruited by ISIS since the organization became public. The children are brainwashed and taught it is their holy duty to undertake suicide missions or participate in mass executions.

In addition to voluntary recruits, ISIS kidnapped up to 500 children this month alone.
