ISIS Says it Blew Up Saudi Mosque

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Islamic State took responsibility for a suicide bombing in Saudi Arabia.

The attack killed 21 people inside a Shiite Mosque in the village of al-Qudaih in Eastern Province.

102 people were injured.

Shiites are a minority in Saudi Arabia.

Islamic State also claimed responsibility for a bombing outside a San’a mosque in Yemen that killed 15 people.

ISIS Takes Over Qaddafi’s Home Town in Libya

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

The Obama’s foreign policy continues to go up in deadly smoke as the he Islamic State (ISIS) savage steamroller takes control of another city in Libya and the strategic and ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

The Libyan city of Sirte, the home town of former dictator Muammar Gaddifi before he was killed in the 2011 rebellion. President Barack Obama said after his death:

One of the world’s longest-serving dictators is no more. The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted.

The black-flagged Islamic State makes Gaddafi look like a democrat, with a small “d.”

Three years later, the ISIS has taken over Sirte, a major city in the center of the country where it has significantly strengthened its position to help it fulfill its ambition to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East.

After that, it is off to Europe, the United States and the rest of the world to fulfill its radical Islamic thirst to rule the world, at least what is left of what it does not obliterate.

ISIS has taken advantage of the civil war in Libya just as it exploits the same situation in Iraq and Syria, where it has taken over the city of Palmyra from the Assad regime, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It said ISIS has executed at least 50 civilians the past week, in which more than 100 Syrian soldiers were killed before survivors fled the city. The barbaric terrorist death machine now controls half of Syria.

If the ISIS can retain Palmyra, a strategic site in central Syria, it will have a clear path to Damascus.

Judging by previous ISIS destruction of pagan culture, Palmyra’s heritage sites will go the way of ancient statues that the ISIS has joyously destroyed in Iraq.

Palmyra, northeast of Damascus, is an ancient Roman city, is home to pagan temples and idols and once was a tourist attraction, in the days then there was such a thing as tourism in Syria.

Mamoun Abdulkarim, the Syrian head of antiquities, said, “If only five members of ISIS go into the ancient buildings, they’ll destroy everything.”

 

 

Denmark Pays 32 ISIS Terrorists Unemployment Benefits

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

The Danish government has paid $557,000 in unemployment benefits to Islamic State (ISIS) jihad fighters, who apparently are considered on the jobless list while fighting for the radical Islamic organization that likes to behead their enemies in Syria, which includes just about everyone except themselves.

“STAR [Danish Labour Agency] has thus far received information pertaining to 32 people who, according to PET’s [Security and Intelligence Service] information, have gone abroad in relation to the conflict in Syria while at the same time receiving social benefits,” according to an Employment Ministry document obtained by Danish Radio24syv

A similar report last November revealed that at least 28 jihadists were receiving unemployment benefits from the Danish government but that 15 of them were asked to pay back the money.

Now, try to imagine that a good jihadist will painfully search his conscience, lay down his assault rifle, and rush to the nearest bank – if there are any more in Syria – and send a money order to the Danish government.

Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen, told about the payments last year, told the tabloid BT:

 It is incredibly important that we are not naive.

Apparently they are not totally naïve because at least 115 Danish citizens have left to fight with the ISIS. So hats off to Copenhagen for not paying unemployment benefits to approximately 68 terrorists. Perhaps the Danish government has discovered that the 68 jihadists are getting paid by the ISIS and that the 32 others are not.

Or perhaps their families in Denmark are receiving their loved ones’ monthly ISIS salary checks, which would mean the terrorists are officially employed.

Peter Skaarup, legal draftsman of the Danish People’s Party, said several months ago:

I think that many Danes feel to laugh over that one pays cash benefits to persons not resident in Denmark. These are people who go there and fight in a holy war against Danish forces while they receive Danish cash – it can hardly be worse.

But it is worse, because nothing has changed since November except that now there are more jihadists getting paid.

Sending out checks to the “unemployed” terrorists obviously encourages more Danes to play both sides of the street.

On the other hand, it is a nifty way to thin out the radical Islamic population in Denmark, assuming that most of the jihadists don’t return home alive.

If there is an outcry from other quarters such as the White House, that Denmark is in effect aiding and abetting terror, perhaps President Barack Obama will turn his attention to similar phenomena elsewhere, namely Ramallah.

The Palestinian Authority pays a healthy sum of money every month to terrorists who are serving time in Israeli jails.

 

Secret Arab-Israel Talks in Jordan a Sign of Distrust of Obama

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Israeli and Arab diplomats secretly met in Jordan to explore a new reality of diminishing influence of President Barack Obama in the Middle East and the common interest by both sides for security against growing radical Islamic threats.

Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) reported that the discussions included diplomats from Arab countries that have no ties with Israel.

The idea of open security cooperation between Arab countries and Israel was nixed because of the issue of the Palestinian Authority, which has dismissed the idea of the American-led “peace process” unless Israel agrees in advance to it terms.

The Saudi 2002 Initiative remains the basis for an agreement between Ramallah and Jerusalem. It calls for Israel’s withdrawal of all of Jerusalem that was restored to Israel in the Six-Day War in 1967, surrender of the Golan Heights and Judea and Samaria, and the acceptance by Israel of millions of UNRWA “refugees” in several countries.

PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, encouraged by years of Arab League talk of “all or nothing,” has convinced himself that he can go for broke, ditch the United States and the European Union and win everything he wants in the United Nations.

When it comes to money on the table, the Arab League has shown it really does not care very much about the Palestinian Authority.

Jordan, despite all of its rhetoric, really does not want to see a weak Arab country on its borders, which Israel now protests from terrorists.

The dual threat of the Islamic State (ISIS) and of a nuclear Iran is much higher on the agenda of Arabs than coercing Israel into making an agreement for a Palestinian Authority country that is likely would turn into another anarchic terrorist state.

So why did the Israeli and Arab diplomats, presumably also those from Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States, meet in Jordan?

To smoke a hookah? The Arab countries know very well that they cannot coordinate security with Israel and suffer a loss of pride in admitting that the Saudi Initiative is dead.

It is just as likely as not, if not more likely, that there was s serious discussion on security coordination behind a thick smokescreen of nasty comments about Israel not wanting to make peace.

Or the secret talks in Jordan might be a spring-board for a new round of charades of renewing the peace process and pacify Abbas while Israel and its Arab enemies work together against their new-found common enemies.

Either way may pave a path for the Arab world to rebuff Iran and the ISIS.

Israel has no problem playing the role of hero in secret.

Obama will continue to play the part of the fool in the new Middle East.

ISIS Takes over Key Iraqi City but US Says ‘Don’t Worry, We Will Win’ [video]

Monday, May 18th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) on Sunday took over the city of Ramadi in one of the last provinces held by government forces, but the Pentagon said Iraqi forces, aided by the U.S. Army, “will take it back later.” But it might need Iran’s help.

A call by the Sunni Muslim government for Shi’ite Muslims to help take back the city is feared by many Sunni Muslims as opening the door for Iran to take over Iraq.

The ISIS executed 503 civilians and soldiers, according to an Iraqi officials in the province of Anbar where Ramadi is located. Iraqi special forces fled the city after more than a dozen fighters were killed by suicide car bombers and before others might become more victims of beheading by the ISIS forces.

The fall of Ramadi followed jubilant announcements the past several weeks that the leader of the Islamic State was seriously wounded and that a deputy commander also was eliminated.

But for every ISIS terrorist who is killed, 10 more replacements come out of the woodwork for the funeral.

The fall of Ramadi is a major setback for the American-aided Iraqi government, but the Pentagon played down the loss and only admitted that it gave the ISIS a “propaganda boost” but defeat

“Ramadi has been contested since last summer and ISIL now has the advantage,” Pentagon “just means the coalition will have to support Iraqi forces to take it back later,” according to Pentagon spokeswoman Elissa Smith.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry could not call the fall of Ramadi a loss. The city “simply target of opportunity,” he commented.

Iranian-backed Shi’ite forces already have answered the call of the Sunni Muslim leader of Anbar. A Shi’ite spokesman said Monday that its fighters will charge in to Ramadi and re-take the city, which is located only 100 miles from Baghdad.

If the Shi’ites succeed, it could be a step towards an Iranian takeover of Iraq and an eventual Iranian Shi’ite Caliphate instead of an ISIS Caliphate in the Arab Middle East .

David Petraeus, who commanded US troops in Iraq during 2007-2008, told the Washington Post in an interview:

If Daesh [ISIS] is driven from Iraq and the consequence is that Iranian-backed militias emerge as the most powerful force in the country – eclipsing the Iraqi security forces, much as Hezbollah does in Lebanon – that would be a very harmful outcome for Iraqi stability and sovereignty, not to mention our own national interests in the region.

Sunni Muslim leaders, especially Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States, might go into action against the prospect of an Iranian-backed Iraq, just as they are doing Yemen where Saudi Arabia-led forces have resumed bombing of Iranian-backed Houthi forces after a five-day humanitarian cease-fire.

ISIS Leader Pronounces: “Islam Religion of War, Islam is Not Religion of Peace”

Friday, May 15th, 2015

ISIS released an audio message which it claims is from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The message was posted on jihadist websites. The message urges all Muslims to carry guns and fight on behalf of the “caliphate.”

The ISIS leader also had a veiled message for the last several U.S. presidents.

“O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war,” the voice purporting to be Baghdadi said. He called upon Muslims around the world to either make their way to the Islamic State or “fight in his land, wherever that may be,” according to the news site Vocative.

The voice on the audio allegedly sounds like al-Baghdadi’s, which is significant because he has not been seen or heard from in months. There have been rumors that al-Baghdadi was killed in a drone strike in November.

“There is no excuse for any Muslim not to migrate to the Islamic State,” the message continues, informing all Muslims that joining the fight “is a duty on every Muslim. We are calling on you either to join or carry weapons wherever you are,” the voice, purportedly of al-Baghdadi, insists.

The message was issued by ISIS’s al-Furqan media outlet and posted on several jihadi sites.

Although the message was audio and not visual, the voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi’s mentions the air campaign against the Houthi rebels in Yemen, which is led by the Saudis. Those airstrikes began in late March, which suggests that it is a recently made message.

ISIS Terror Cells Threaten Gaza, Sinai and Saudi Arabia [video]

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority has warned that “hundreds” of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists are setting up bases in Gaza for attacks on the Sinai Peninsula, and at least one of four recent attacks in Saudi Arabia has been linked the fanatic Islamic group.

The Palestinian Authority said that eight Salafist groups have set up bases in Gaza, and that many of its recruits are former Hamas members, Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel) radio reported Sunday morning. Hamas denies that the ISIS poses a threat to stability of its regime and said “only” a few dozen Salafists, supporting the ISIS, are in Gaza.

Hamas arrested a senior Salafist terrorist last month as well as dozens of the group’s terrorists in recent weeks.

A group that itself as the ISIS stated on Friday it launched mortar shells are a Hamas base in central Gaza.

Each radical Muslim group is competing to be more monstrous than the other, and Hamas last week even destroyed a tent that was turned into a mosque that ISIS supporters used.

Egypt is vulnerable to terror in the Sinai and has suffered the loss of dozens of soldiers and policemen in recent months at the hands of terrorists. If the ISIS can gain a foothold in the Sinai, it will be on the doorstep of both Israel and Egypt.

In Saudi Arabia, unknown terrorists shot and killed a policeman last week, the fourth shooting incident in the past two months. Saudi authorities have admitted that at least one of the attacks was carried out by an ISIS-linked group.

Saudi Arabia has arrested nearly 100 ISIS suspects since last December, including a cell that plotted to attack the U.S. Embassy with a car bomb.

The kingdom has become a clearer target for the Islamic State since Saudi Arabia joined the American-led coalition’s war against the terrorist organization that has take control of large areas in Syria and Iraq.

Following is a Saudi news report on the murder of the policemen.
