ISIS Posts Video of Child Shooting to Death Israeli Arab in the Head

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has posted a video showing a child of around 12 years old purportedly killing Jerusalem Arab Mohammed Said Ismail Musallem with a gunshot in the head and shooting “Allahu Akbar (Allah is great).”

The video does not actually show the boy pulling the trigger.

Claims by the ISIS that the victim was a Mossad spy are preposterous and have been vigorously denied by his brother, who said that he was killed for trying to flee

The ISIS has claimed that he was trained by the Mossad for a month before being sent to Syria to spy for Israel, an allegation that only proves he was not a spy since becoming a Mossad spy after 30 days would be like graduating from university after having completed kindergarten.

The child executioner was shown next to another ISIS terrorist who spoke in French and spewed out threats against French Jews. The child aimed his revolver at the head of his 19-year-old victim.

Almost all news agencies decided not to post the video.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) confirmed last October that Musallem had left Israel for Syria, apparently after having been recruited online.

The ISIS previously has posted at least one video showing a child as an executioner.

The VOX website tried to look at the execution of Musallem through rose-colored glasses and said it shows how desperate the ISIS is. It wrote:

The turn to conscripts, including child soldiers, appears to be a sign that it’s having trouble filling its ranks with voluntary adult soldiers. That said, the grotesque use of a child in a taped execution tells us that, even if the trend is hopeful, the conflict in Syria and Iraq today remains horrific.

The problem is that the world is going to suffer many more executions and many more children trained as murderers before the U.S.-led task force can overcome the ISIS.

Looking back, the Obama administration’s decision to stay out of Syria created a bigger vacuum for the ISIS to capture oil fields and fund its sadism.

American intelligence experts knew of the ISIS long ago. The terrorist organization did not pop up out of nowhere last year.

Burned by previous failures in the “war on terror,” there does not seem to be a strong resolve to eradicate the ISIS.

Jihadi John Tells Mom and Dad: Gee, Sorry, but Work is Work

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Mohammed “Jihadi John” Emwazi has reportedly apologized to his British parents for causing them embarrassment by his beheading innocent victims of the ISIS, but he did not state any regrets.

He told his mom and dad through a third party in Syria that he really is sorry for the “problems and trouble the revelation of his identity has caused,” The Sunday Times reported.

However, he did not express any sorrow for cutting off the heads of ISIS victims and then letting the entire world watch his brutality and hear him speak from behind his mask.

Emwazi’s father Jasem originally called his son a “terrorist” and a “dog” after he was identified but then  rejected the identification of Jihadi John as his son, a graduate in computer science. The family has gone into hiding since Emwazi was identified.

Even the family lawyer has dropped the case like a hot potato for “personal reasons” after he filed lawsuits for slander on behalf of Jihadi John’s father.

The attorney, Salem al-Hashash had stated that “so far, Western security agencies have not provided any evidence to prove that Mohammed Emwazi is Jihadi John” and that the identification by The Washington Post is “untrue and baseless.”

Boko Haram Pledges Allegiance to ISIS

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

The Nigerian Boko Haram terrorist organization has posted a video in which it pledges loyalty to the Islamic State (ISIS), which may or may not return the favor.

Boko Haram recently has copied some of the ISIS’s methods, including beheading, but the group simply may be trying to ramp up pressure on the Nigerian government.

The ISIS has become a threat beyond Iraq and Syria. Egypt last month bombed ISIS bases in Libya after the Islamic terrorists murdered nearly a dozen Egyptian Christian Copts.

Boko Haram’s 6000-man force would be an asset for ISIS if it chooses to accept Boko Haram as an ally, but a history of Islamic terrorist crazies is littered with broken agreements because no one wants to yield power.

Reports have surfaced that ISIS attracting young people from Nigeria, which would be a part of the caliphate state imagined by ISIS.

Boko Haram controls territory in northeast Nigeria, which borders Libya.

Jacob Zenn, a Jamestown Foundation expert on Boko Haram, told CNN:

Boko Haram joining the ISIS fold makes sense to both groups.  Boko Haram will get legitimacy, which will help its recruiting, funding and logistics as it expands into (French-speaking) West Africa. It will also get guidance from ISIS in media warfare and propaganda. Previously Boko Haram was a sort of outcast in the global Jihadi community. Now it is perhaps ISIS’s biggest affiliate.

ISIS gets more international legitimacy as a global caliphate.

He added that ISIS and Boko Harem last month apparently established a Twitter account that carried the video on Saturday proclaiming the Nigerian’s group loyalty to ISIS.

Al Jazeera Reporter: ‘Bibi Said ISIL and Iran Working Together’

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Said Arikat is not the only journalist in the State Dept. briefing room who makes blatantly false statements about Israel. Arikat gets in his slams against Israel at just about every briefing. He also has repeatedly acted as if he works for the Palestinian Authority, beseeching the State Dept. spokesperson to please, provide more funding to the aggrieved Palestinian Arabs.

Such statements remain etched to a greater or lesser degree on the people in the room, including the other journalists, plus, of course, the State Department spokesperson heading the briefing.

Rosalind Jordan, though not a serial slanderer, uttered a flatly false statement about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the joint session of Congress on Tuesday, March 3.

Jordan is a reporter for Al Jazeera. Perhaps it is a cheap shot to mention, but Jordan worked as a journalist for several years during the mid-2000’s with NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams (yes, that Brian Williams.)

A State Department daily press briefing took place within two hours of the prime minister’s speech on Tues, March 3. During that briefing there was a good deal of discussion about Netanyahu’s speech. There was, not surprisingly, significant pushback by Marie Harf, State’s deputy spokesperson.

Jordan, however, asked a question that revealed how little attention she and others actually paid to the speech. The question Jordan asked had to do with Iran and ISIL (ISIS).

First, this is what the prime minister actually said about those two terrorist entities:

Don’t be fooled. The battle between Iran and ISIS doesn’t turn Iran into a friend of America.

Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire.

In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone.

So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.

The difference is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs. We must always remember — I’ll say it one more time — the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war. We can’t let that happen.

That is what Netanyahu said. Two terrorist entities, fighting each other for who will be the radical hegemon in the region. And the prime minister’s central point was that just because Iran and ISIS are fighting each other, and the U.S. is fighting ISIS, that does not mean that Iran is a friend to the U.S.

But here is what Al-Jazeera’s Rosalind Jordan asks the State Department’s Harf:

JORDAN: Did the Prime Minister mis-state the relationship between Iran and ISIL?

MS. HARF: I’m trying to remember how he stated it.

JORDAN: (Inaudible.)

JORDAN: He said that —

JORDAN: He basically suggested that they were working together.

Really? No, Netanyahu actually – not basically – said the exact opposite. He said Iran and ISIS were enemies, battling it out for top bad dog in the ‘hood. But Harf responded as if Jordan’s question accurately reflected Netanyahu’s statement:

MS. HARF: Well, I mean, I think that’s a gross oversimplification. Clearly, ISIL is a serious threat that we are taking on with direct military action. It is a terrorist organization. It is not a state. It is not a country. It has taken over a territory, and we’re working to push it back. Certainly, it poses a threat, but Iran’s destabilizing activities in places are a little bit different and require different tools. Even their support for terrorism with a group like Hizballah, Hizballah is different than ISIL. They’re just different groups, and you deal with them in different ways.

At the point in the briefing at which Jordan asked this question, Harf had already been speaking about the Israeli prime minister’s speech for at least ten minutes. So, either Harf had not watched the speech at all, but was just lecturing from talking points, or she had watched the speech but did not understand one of the most basic points Netanyahu made.

And no one else in the State Department briefing room pointed out how completely off-target either Jordan’s question was, or Harf’s response to it.  And those reporters are the ones informing the news consumers of this planet.

Kerry Says US Will Defeat ISIS but ‘Don’t Ask Me When’

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told ABC news Sunday that he admits that the war against the Islamic State (ISIS) is not near an end by insists the United States will win, even if he does not know when.

“Do you stand by your recent comments that we’re on the road to beating ISIS?” asked ABC interviewer Martha Raddatz.

He answered:

What I said was we’re on the road to success, and that begins in Iraq, and yes, I stand by it. We are growing in the capacity on the ground… The fact is that in Iraq, they have gained back a fixed, significant percentage of the area that ISIL was controlling.

When reminded that Central Command said the Iraqi city of Mosul would be re-taken from ISIS by this spring, Kerry replied:

As I think you’ve seen, that has been contradicted and I think walked back. And there are a number of different options out there, so nobody should count on what they’ve read or what they’ve seen. This will happen when we are ready. It will happen on the coalition’s schedule, and it will happen when there is confidence that it will be successful.

I’m not going to get into timetables. It will happen.

He did not say whether it would be this year or another year but admitted that things in Syria are even tougher.

“Syria is a bigger challenge,” according to Kerry.” We will need people on the ground. It will not be American forces, but we are working on that…. Arab countries in the region are stepping up their efforts. I have meetings this week with all of the GCC. I’ll be meeting with King Salman of Saudi Arabia….

“”People are thinking about the day-to-day vision of what is happening on the ground in Syria, in Libya, where 21 Coptic Christians had their heads cut off, where a soldier is burned and a pilot in a cage, where American journalists have been beheaded publicly. We understand that. But I still stand by what I said, which is in large terms, compared to the last century, there are, in fact, fewer people dying of the means that you look at, by state war, violence, health, et cetera.”

The U.S.-led coalition on Sunday said it launched seven aerial strikes on ISIS targets in Iraq and that two American drones in Syria hit an ISIS unit and two vehicles.

A Lost Soul and $25 Buys a Ticket to Cross from Turkey to ISIS

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Wanabee Islamic State savages need only $25 to enter ISIS-controlled territory from Turkey, which U.S. intelligence director James Clapper said Thursday is not going to take an active role in the war against the ISIS.

He told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Ankara is more concerned with Kurdish opposition and its troubled economy.

The passage from Turkey to Syria is known as “jihad highway,” where $25 is enough for a lost soul to pay a smuggler to whisk him across to the dream of joining the ISIS and becoming a barbarian, if you are a man, or a slave to sex, if you are a woman.

“Public opinion polls show in Turkey they don’t see ISIL as a primary threat,” said Clapper, who referred to the ease of terrorists to travel in Turkey.

“And of course, the consequence of that is a permissive environment… because of their laws and the ability of people to travel through Turkey en route to Syria,” he explained. “So somewhere in the neighborhood of 60% of those foreign fighters find their way to Syria through Turkey.”

As usual, President Recep Erdoğan is missing the foreign policy boat. After he ditched Israel several yards ago and ran into the waiting arms of Bashar al-Assad and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he had a hard time escaping their deadly clutches when he woke up.

If the U.S.-led strike force does not eliminate the ISIS first, Erdoğan may come out of his stupor when is finds himself dressed in an orange jumpsuit.

Erdoğan is led by his ego and not common sense, and Turkish smugglers are led by money and not by morality.

The WorldPost described a 30-year-old Turkish smuggler, Jasim Qalthim, as a “devoted father” who smuggles people into ISIS territory. He explained that an ISIS official, a former Turk named “Abu Ali,” controls the border.

“All the soldiers are afraid of him. One time, he closed the border for 10 days, just because he was angry. He controls everything. He makes huge money and buys weapons and ammunition for ISIS,” Qalthim said.

So why does he continue to smuggle people?

He listed three reasons: He needs the money to fed his family, it’s easy work, and he doesn’t have to travel far from home.

Egypt Suggests Pan-Arab Force to Fight ISIS

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has called for a pan-Arab military force to fight the Islamic State (ISIS).

Speaking a week after Egypt bombed ISIS positions in Libya in retaliation for the terrorist army’s execution of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians, al-Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said he believes in “coordination with our Arab brothers.”

Judging by the Egyptian military’s far from superior past, it is no wonder the former general wants allies.

Historically, Egypt has had a dismal record in hostage situations. Unfortunately, the February crisis has been the norm, rather than the exception. Failures in negotiating the safe release of hostages have started from the 1970s, with its bloodiest result in 1985,” Dr. Omar Ashour, a senior lecturer in security studies at the University of Exeter wrote for Al Jazeera.

The attack on Libya last week boosted Al-Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s popularity but also raises questions why he did not act sooner, before the hostages were beheaded.

The aerial strikes also served to bury to put on the back burner, temporarily, at home, where he has been harshly criticized for detaining thousands of people for alleged terrorism during the crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood.

Al-Sisi admitted in his televised speech on Sunday, “I am sure there are many innocent people inside prisons. Soon many of them will be released according to the available permissions.”
