ISIS Kidnaps Four European Hostages

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Islamic State terrorists have seized four more foreign journalists and aid workers, two of them Italian women, bring to more than 24 the number of hostages they are holding, presumably alive for the time being.

The terrorists, still described as “militants” by wire services, abducted their victims in Aleppo or Idlib in western Syria and have moved them to the ISIS stronghold in the north.

ISIS terrorists this year have freed at least 10 kidnap victims after receiving a ransom.

One of the abductors of a British citizen who later was freed was the same terrorist who appeared as the executioner of James Foley in the video posted by ISIS, showing the masked killer beheading Foley, a journalist.

ISIS Beheadings Mark Declared War on the United States

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

President Barack Obama is “appalled” and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is angry at the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley, whose execution was posted in an online video by his killers, the Islamic State ISIS group also known as ISIS.

While the United States, Britain and other Western countries professed their shock, actually believing that these grisly acts only happen to other Muslims and African Christians but never to Americans, except Daniel Pearl.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu showed Wednesday night that Israel is a lot more tuned into reality.

In his address to the country in which he promised that Israel will not stop the war against Hamas until total quiet is restored, he compared Hamas with ISIS.

If you are surprised, you are dreaming.

Beheading someone is savage. It is an act of an animal who wants to inject fear into the hearts of souls of decent people.

Hamas also has beheaded people, mainly those Gazans who hate the terrorist regime and took the risk to relay intelligence information to Israel on Hamas.

Beheading is gory but no less than Hamas terrorists’ primitive behavior after they killed Israeli soldiers and blew them to bits and pieces.

Hamas animals, AKA terrorists, actually picked up body parts, a head here and a finger there, and hustled them off through terror tunnels with the intention of using them to barter with Israel for the return of terrorists in Israeli custody.

The two families of two soldiers whose body parts were not recovered or were only partially recovered did not fall into the trap that would have undermined Israel’s war effort. They buried their sons with whatever body parts there were, and in one case there were virtually none.

Once the soldiers were buried, the Hamas animals’ plans were foiled.

An animal is an animal, or if you prefer, a terrorist is a terrorist, but the United States still doesn’t get it.

U.S. State Dept. assistant spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters Wednesday that despite Netanyahu’s statement that Hamas and ISIS are look-alikes, they cannot be compared.

Of course not. ISIS is not a potential peace partner for Israel, but Hamas is.

President Barack Obama said the world was “appalled” by the beheading of Foley in Syria and that “the United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. .We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.”

Wow, isn’t that scary?

Americans security officials verified the authenticity of the video showing the beheading after the recorded marks by Foley that the United States and the West are to blame for his imminent death because of their “complacent criminality” that he said is the cause of his death.

The video showed another American journalist Steven Sotloff, and warns that he will be the next to die.

If words could kill, Obama slaughtered ISIS, calling it a “cancer” and stating, “No faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by people who build and not destroy.”

Now what?

The ISIS video warned that the “next move” is up to Obama.

An hour after Obama spoke, the U.S. Air Force carried out 14 bombing raids on ISIS targets.

It is a bit late for that.

The United States has spent two decades making the Middle East safe for democracy by sending American troops all over the place and undermining autocratic but stable regimes so that can be replaced by autocratic and unstable regimes that have left a vacuum of power grabbed by terrorists, or animals.

4 Beheaded Victims Found in Sinai

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Signs that Islamic State (ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) terrorists have arrived in Egypt seem to have appeared just a few kilometers from Israel and Gaza: four beheaded bodies were found Wednesday in the Sinai Peninsula.

Security personnel in Sinai and Cairo said residents in Sheikh Zuweid discovered the disfigured bodies two days after the victims were kidnapped by armed terrorists while traveling through town in a car.

All four victims were civilians but it is believed they may have been targeted due to possible loyalty to local police or the military, the sources said. Their identity was not revealed, and their murderers were suspected terrorists battling against the Cairo government.

US Adds ISIS-Linked Gaza Terror Group to Foreign Terror List

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

The U.S. State Department has declared the Mujahedeen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC) to be a foreign terrorist organization.

The MSC is an umbrella organization comprised of Gaza-based global jihad terror organizations connected to Al Qaeda. It is also linked to the Islamic State — also known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State in the Levant).

The group has claimed responsibility for the August 2013 missile attack on the resort city of Eilat, and for a March 2013 attack on Sderot.

Report: ‘Hundreds’ of Anti-Aircraft Weapons in Syrian Terrorist Hands

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

A Swiss research group has published a report that explains why the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has banned U.S. flights through Syria air space.

The Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey research organization released a report Tuesday warning that armed terror groups in Syria possess portable anti-aircraft weapons.

The weapons present a risk to aircraft like Malaysia Airlines Flight #17, which was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, allegedly by pro-Russian separatist rebels.

The Swiss group analyzes the global flow of weapons. It estimated the terrorists have access to several hundred of the anti-aircraft missiles.

Its report focused on launchers and missiles known as “man-portable air defense systems,” or MANPADS, which are dangerous to aircraft upon takeoff and departure, and that fly at lower altitudes.

The weapons could also easily be smuggled to other terrorist organizations, the group noted.

The revelation raises red flags for neighboring Israel, already on alert due to incidents in which Syrian mortar and gunfire have been aimed at its northern region.

The Islamic State — formerly known as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) — has been operating in Syria for some time. The group has conquered wide swathes of territory both there and in Iraq, including two border crossings between Iraq and Syria, and one border crossing between Iraq and Jordan.

It is alsos not clear which group has possession of the anti-aircraft weaponry.

The report was released just hours after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had banned all U.S. flights from flying in Syrian air space.

Armed extremists in Syria are “known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft,” the FAA stated in its notice. In previous alerts, the FAA had warned against flying over Syria but had not issued an outright ban.

Islamist Terror Group Threatened Oslo: ‘Shari’a or Else’

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Norwegian officials are holding their breath, waiting to see whether Islamist terrorists are going to strike — and if so, when and how.

The Police Security Service received a concrete alert in July (2014) about an imminent threat from a Muslim terrorist organization, one affiliated with a group in Syria.

In 2012, the Ansar al-Sunna Muslim terrorist organization sent a letter to Norwegian authorities bearing the logo of ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — now called the Islamic State — ordering Oslo to designate a part of the capital as an independent, Shari’a compliant Muslim state, or suffer the consequences.

Translated by Michael Laudahn, the letter was sent to politicians and editorial offices.

“If Norwegian soldiers can take planes to Afghanistan, then Osama and Mohammed can also take planes to Norway, insha’Allah,” the group wrote in a threat to the Norwegian authorities.

“Now, the government must wake up and assume responsibility, before this war spreads to Norway. Before the counterpart reacts. Before moslems take the step necessary.

“Do not confuse the Muslims’ silence with weakness. Do not profit from the Muslims’ patience. Do not force us to do something that can be avoided.

“This is not a threat, only the words of truth. The words of justice. A warning that the consequences can be fatal. A warning about a 9/11 on Norwegian ground, or larger attacks than the one carried out on 22 july. This is for your own good and in your own best interest.”

According to VGNett, the group has been under surveillance by Norwegian security for some time. Prime Minister Jens Stotenberg, Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store and Defense Minister Espen Barth Eide were all mentioned in the group’s communique.

Grønland is a district in the heart of the capital, in downtown Oslo. There have been Shari’a patrols in that area of the city already for years, according to a blogger known as ‘Fjordman.’

“It’s not Norway or Europe anymore, except when there is welfare money to be collected. The police have largely given up,” according to a 2011 article translated from the Norwegian Aftenposten.

“In just the past ten years more than 4,000 people have been robbed in the town center and the area of the Grønland police station [an immigrant ghetto]. Most of them are young men… The robbers play on fear, violence, and severe threats that leave a mark on the victims… ‘We have lost the city,’” police told one victim.

Ansar al-Sunna made their threat in 2012 remarkably clear.

“We do not want to be a part of Norwegian society. And we do not consider it necessary either to move away from Norway, because we were born and grew up here. And Allah’s earth belongs to everybody. But let Grønland become ours.

“Bar this city quarter and let us control it the way we wish to do it. This is the best for both parts. We do not wish to live together with dirty beasts like you.”

PA Accuses the US of Establishing ISIS

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

The Palestinian Authority official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has published five articles in the last six weeks accusing the United States of establishing the radical Islamic movement Islamic State (ISIS or IS) that has conquered vast territory in Syria and Iraq in recent months, this according to a report compiled by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

The articles claim that the US has a long term goal of controlling the Arab-Muslim states by dividing them through conflict and wars. ISIS’s war and other conflicts are all said to be the work of the US.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida wrote on July 16th: “The wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Palestine were planned by the US in order to protect its interests… The ISIS, Islamic Front, and Al-Nusra Front (i.e., all radical Islamists) are Muslims from various countries the US is using to fight in Iraq and Syria, in order to fragment the unity of these two Arab countries… We are now more aware that the Americans, who want to fight for their own interests using Islamic, Jewish and Christian believers, are truly the head of the snake.”

On July 14th the newspaper wrote: “ISIS, the perpetrators of atrocities and the groups that hoist the banner of religion seem to be raising their weapons in sync with Washington, and fight the US verbally, but in practice are killing their enemies. Is this a coincidence, or was it planned ahead of time?”.

On July 3rd the paper stated: “The radical terrorists of ISIS and those like them, who were created by Israel and the US, are paving the way for Israel to act like them.”

As Palestinian Media Watch reported in June, the current editor in chief of the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida was appointed by the presidential decree of Mahmoud Abbas.

ISIS has declared itself a Caliphate, thereby claiming religious authority over all Muslims; its goal is to bring much of the Middle East, including Jordan, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Lebanon, Kuwait, and Cyprus under its control. To this end, ISIS has used extreme terror tactics, including decapitations, crucifixions and mass murders. Their latest religious campaign is against the Yazidi Kurds in northern Iraq. They have reportedly slaughtered 400 Yazidis in Iraq and 700 members of a tribe in Syria over the weekend, the majority of them civilians.
