Kerry Drafts Americans in War on ISIS, Offers $5 Million for Information

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

The U.S. State Dept. has posted a $5 million reward to any American who can turn over “information that will disrupt the trade of oil and trafficking of antiquities that benefit the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.”

The press release on the notice from the State Dept.’s Rewards for Justice added:

Today’s announcement marks the first time the U.S. Secretary of State has authorized a Rewards for Justice offer for information that could be used to disrupt sale or trade in oil or antiquities by, or on behalf of, a terrorist organization.

The Obama administration began to take notice of ISIS years ago, but it wasn’t until the beheading of Americans journalist James Foley last year that Americans began realizing the power and growing threat of the criminal and terror organization.

More than one year after the brutal murder of Foley, the first of three Americans who so far have been beheading victims, Kerry unveiled his weapon to defeat ISIS. His boss, President Barack Obama, told the United Nations this week that military force is not enough to overcome the radical Islamist group.

One of the reasons that has been true is that the United States foreign policy experts never really know who is on first in the Middle East. After having helped Hosni Mubarak out of power and into jail and ushering Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi in power and then out of power, U.S. army officers trained and armed “trusted” rebels to fight the Assad regime. The unit graduated from training and promptly turned over the American weapons to Al Qaeda.

Apparently lacking information on ISIS’ illegal trade, Kerry now has drafted Americans into the war, figuring that good citizens will come up with the goods to lead to the disruption of ISIS criminal trade.

The State Dept. announced:

The U.S. Department of State expects this reward offer will encourage individuals to come forward with information regarding persons or entities engaged in the production, facilitation, processing, smuggling, distribution, sale, and trade of oil and antiquities that would benefit ISIL, as well as the information on the smuggling networks, methods, and routes underlying these activities.

While the United States has allowed Syria to create a military base in Syria, right across from the Israeli border, Kerry has let loose his doomsday weapon to help wipe out ISIS.

Naïve is one of the kindest words that can be used to describe American foreign policy, especially in the Middle East, a policy that has left a huge vacuum that Russian President Vladimir Putin is filling to the hilt by taking over Syrian airspace and carrying out aerial attacks.

Putin claims that the only reason Russia is bombing Syria is to attack Islamic State (ISIS) forces. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that official said a Russian bombing raid in Syria on Wednesday targeted an area held by rebel forces that are backed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Syria Urges Russia to Attack All Rebel Forces

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

The Syrian ambassador to Russia said Wednesday he hopes that the Russian Armed Forces will attack all the terrorist organizations present in Syria, including the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra.”

Ambassador Riad Haddad told Moscow’s Sputnik news that the Russian Air Force headquarters would be determined by the military command.

It is inevitable that Russia will not limit its military operations in Syria to attacks on the ISIS, as President Vladimir Putin has assured President Barack Obama.

Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is totally dependent on Russia to save his neck, and Russia is so heavily invested in Syria and Iran that it cannot afford to see the ISIS, rebel forces or Al Qaeda carve up the country.

Breaking News: Russia Gives Green Light for Air Strikes in Syria

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015


The Russian Federation Council has approved a resolution that allows military force outside of the country, clearing the path for Russian air strikes in Syria.

The vote followed a request from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for military help to help him survive.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed that Russian involvement in Syria is intended to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), and the Kremlin chief of staff insists that air strikes will be limited to hitting ISIS.

However, it can easily be claimed that ISIS is operating in areas controlled by other rebel groups fighting Assad and that military strikes will be widespread.

The presence of Russian warplanes in Syria gives Moscow a base to take over Syrian skies, where Israel occasionally has attacked Russian and Iranian weapons en route to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Hezbollah and Iran also have sent thousands of soldiers to Iran, allowing for a Russian-Iranian-Hezbollah alliance across from Israel’s border with Syria.

Fox News reported Wednesday that Russia has demanded that the United States remove all of its warplanes from Syrian airspace. A senior defense official told Fox:

We have had every indication in recent weeks that (the Russians) were going to do something given the build-up.

There is nothing to indicate that we are changing operations over Syria.

Florida Jew Indicted for Plotting to Bomb 9/11 Memorial

Friday, September 11th, 2015

One very mixed-up Jew from Florida has been indicted for threatening to blow up the 9/11 memorial at Kansas City in two days and for pretending to be a jihadist from Australia.

Joshua Ryne Goldberg, 20, was arraigned Thursday after an FBI investigation.

Reports of his arrest and indictment clearly indicate that he lives in a movie, and a Florida TV station quoted a neighbor as saying that Goldberg rarely was seen outside of his parents’ home.

May God have compassion on his family.

Goldberg posed on the Internet as an ISIS supporter under the moniker “Australi Witness” and encouraged attacks in the United States and other Western countries.

He allegedly distributed pictures of a  bomb that he supposedly is making, a device similar to the one used in the deadly Boston Marathon terrorist attack two years ago.

Goldberg claimed online that he works with other ISIS terrorists in Austrlia and the United States.

The Australian Age reported that he  “is non-Muslim and no real-world links with extremism.”

The indictment charges him with:

Distribution information pertaining to the manufacturing of explosives, destructive devices, or weapons of mass destruction in furtherance of an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence.

That is pretty heavy stuff for a young man who obviously is a bit mixed-up, but he could serve up to 20 years for his Internet pose.

Court records show that Goldberg was arrested in late August and told a source how to make a bomb and fill it with nails and other items dipped in rat poison.

Special agent William Berry of US Customs and Border Protection said:

Goldberg ….admitted that he believed the information would create a genuine bomb.

He added that the suspect claimed after during the investigation that he planned to warn police before the bomb would go off so he could get credit for stopping a terrorist attack. His social media posting show that he craved attention.

Goldberg previously posed on the Internet as a prominent Australian lawyer, The Age reported.

However, his acting out almost caused an attack. In May, Goldberg under the alias “Australi Witness.” tweeted the address of a Mohammed cartoon exhibition in Texas and urged people to attend “with “weapons, bombs or with knifes.”

When the event was held, two Muslims tried to stage an attack, were killed by police and then were praised online by Goldberg as “martyrs.”

Jacksonville, Florida’s News4Jax quoted a neighbor of Goldberg as saying:

It’s crazy. Obviously the guy’s not right in the head.




Israel Arrests Senior Gaza Terrorist Linked with ISIS

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Released for publication: Israel has arrested and indicted a Gaza City terrorist who is part of a group linked with the Islamic State (ISIS) and who organized attacks against the IDF in last year’s anti-terror Protective Edge campaign.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) lifted gag order on the arrest in late July of Ihab Sayeed Nahel, 27, and he was indicted on 12 counts of various charges, including being in contact with a foreign enemy, conspiracy to commit murder, and possessing and transferring illegal weapons.

A surgeon, who is a member of Hamas, gave Nahel safe harbor in his house while he carried out attacks against the IDF last year, including planting bombs on army patrol routes at the Gaza security fence.

The terrorist was arrested while trying to travel to Qatar, where he was supposed to work as a teacher as part of project to employ Gaza educators.

Nahel told interrogators that he began his career as a terrorist with Hamas, for whom he carried out surveillance on the IDF. He also helped dig tunnels used by terrorists to stage attacks.

Last year, he joined a terrorist Salafist faction linked with ISIS and known as “ARABIC.” It was part of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) which he led in 2010. The PRC is the same group that helped stage the murder of two Israeli soldiers and the kidnap of Gilad Shalit at a checkpoint nine years ago. The attack was carried out via a tunnel.

As leader of the PRC in 2012, he was involved in planning suicide attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians at the Egyptian border, and he used a tunnel to travel from Gaza to the Sinai.

Nahel had planned an attack on a bus near Eilat, but the plan never was carried out.

ISIS Video Claims Burning of Four Men Fighting with Iran-Backed Forces

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has posted a new gruesome video showing four men in orange jumpsuits being burned alive while hanging upside down from a scaffold.

The victims were said to be members of the Popular Mobilization Forces, allied with the Iraqi government and backed by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, Long War Journal reported.

The ISIS said the executions were in revenge for a Shi’ite leader’s execution of a Sunni Muslim victim, who was burned to death while the Shi’ite leader mocked the ISIS.

In a separate report from Orient-News,net, the ISIS allegedly used mustard gas Tuesday in an attack on Aleppo, injuring 20 people, most of them civilians.
It was the second time in a week that people arrived at a local hospital with breathing difficulties.
