Israeli Woman Arrested Trying to Join ISIS

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

An Israeli woman is allegedly heading north to join Da’esh (ISIS) in Syria, according to a report by the Hebrew-language Ma’ariv newspaper online service.

The newspaper quoted officials in an unnamed northern Israeli town.

The woman, reported to be in her forties, allegedly boarded a flight to Turkey Thursday intending to cross the border into Syria to join the terrorist group.

A local source close to the woman’s family said her husband and children notified authorities, saying they feared she was heading to the Syrian region controlled by Da’esh.

“Her husband and children went to the police and also told the Foreign Ministry in the hopes of tracking her down before she crossed the border into Syria,” the source told Ma’ariv.

According to a report by Ha’aretz, Turkish police arrested the woman Friday night as she did indeed attempt to cross the border into Syria.

They allegedly deported her straight back to Israel, where faced a remand hearing on Saturday. She is reportedly being questioned by Israel’s General Security Service, the Shin Bet.

This is not the first case of an Israeli citizen traveling to Turkey in an attempt to join Da’esh, although it may be the first attempt by an Israeli woman on her own.

This past June, a man and wife took their three children from the Galilee town of Sakhnin to join ISIS as well. As have many others, they too traveled first to Turkey, and then crossed the border into the ISIS-held region in Syria. Relatives of the husband notified Israeli authorities after the family left.

‘Jihadi John’ Vows to Return to Britain and ‘Cut off Heads’

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

The Islamic State’s (ISIS) infamous beheader Mohammed “Jihadi John” Emwazi said on a video that he will return to his native Britain to “carry on cutting heads off,” the London Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The newspaper said it obtained the video, which reportedly fell in the hands of the Free Syrian Army and may have been filmed approximately two months ago in Syria, the first time he has been photographed unmasked. . The video shows a man claiming to be Jihadi John, dressed in black and wearing a cap under his hood. He announced in the video, with a clear British accent:

I will carry on cutting heads.

A Free Syrian Army activist told the Mail:

He looks at the camera and says, ‘I am Mohammed Emwazi. I will soon go back to Britain with the Khalifa’ [the leader of Islamic State].

He said something more about cutting heads off, ‘We will kill the kuffar.’ Then the camera shows two masked men that looked like bodyguards.

Jihdi John said that when he returns to Britain to chop off heads, he will spare “believers.”

Jihadi John is one of the world’s most wanted men with a $96 million bounty placed on his head by the United States for the bheading of Americans, the first of whom was James Foley last year.

EU Receives Warning ISIS Infiltrating Among Migrants

Monday, July 6th, 2015

The European Union is being warned by international security personnel that there may be terrorists infiltrating among the migrants who flock to the continent.

Smugglers’ boats sailing the Mediterranean Sea and carrying migrants to Europe may present a risk to the European Union, according to the warning received by Michele Coninsx, head of Eurojust, the EU judicial cooperation agency.

The agency, which is tasked with helping EU nations respond to illegal immigration, terrorism and cyber crime, warned that some of the migrants may actually be fighters with Da’esh, the ISIS terrorist organization.

In addition, Da’esh and similar groups are using funds obtained from human trafficking to fund their terrorist activities, according to a report by The Associated Press.

Coninsx told reporters on Monday that although she could not share specific information provided by EU nations to Eurojust, the agency’s efforts are ongoing. She added that the scope of the infiltration by Da’esh terrorists now facing EU law enforcement officials is not yet clear.

Nasrallah’s Golan Heights Mughniyeh Appointment Angers Jealous Hezbollah Terrorists

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

The Saudi news-site Al-Watan reports that Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has appointed the young Mustafa Mughniyah (Mugniyeh) to take command of Hezbollah’s forces on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, according to NRG.

The job involves both fighting to protect Syrian president Assad’s regime, as well as setting up the terror infrastructure with which to attack Israel.

Mustafa replaces his older brother, Jihad, who was killed on the Golan Heights, along with some Iranian generals, in a reported Israeli air strike in January of this year.

Mustafa’s father, Imad Mughniyah, a former senior Hezbollah leader, aka “The Chief of Staff, was assassinated in a 2008 car bombing in Damascus.

Danny Yatom, former head of the Israeli Mossad said: “He was one of the most dangerous terrorists ever on Earth.”

The U.S. State Department said of Imad: “The world is a better place without this man in it. He was a coldblooded killer, a mass murderer and a terrorist responsible for countless innocent lives lost. One way or another he was brought to justice.”

The report in Al-Watan and in Kuwaiti papers says the appointment of Mustafa has angered senior Hezbollah officials who feel that Mustafa has no experience, and since the Golan Heights is such a difficult and sensitive area, they are worried he will make serious mistakes to Hezbollah’s detriment.

They are also upset that Nasrallah appears to be promoting members of the Mughniyah family at their expense.

Pamela Geller’s Coup Against Jihad, and a Coup Against Moses

Friday, June 19th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai deals with modern-day and ancient battles. First he is joined by political activist and commentator Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author, among other books, of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” She sponsored the “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, which was attacked by jihadists, who were killed in a shootout. She tells Yishai about the challenges involved in fighting jihad in the US and Israel.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to talk about the internecine Jewish political battles in the Book the Numbers. Was the biblical character Korach a communist or a man of the people? A fighter for democracy or a jealous would-be leader? Why did he pick a fight with Moses? And why did he merit having the Prophet Samuel as his progeny.

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.
