ISIS Now Has Fighter Jets

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

ISIS has captured three fighter jets from Assad’s Syrian Air Force.

The reports from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says that Saddam Hussein’s former pilots are training the ISIS Jihadists how to fly them.

Civilians report seeing the fighter planes taking off and landing at the captured airport, which would probably indicate flight training.

ISIS also captured a munitions depot, in case you were wondering, which may include surface to air missiles.

The jets, possibly Mig 21 or MiG 23 models, were seized from military airports in Aleppo and Raqqa.

The training is going on at the Jarrah military airport, east of Allepo.

Lebanese Army Soldiers Defect to Syrian Rebels

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

While Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorists are busy in Syria, fighting for Iran and Assad, Lebanese Army soldiers are going the other way, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star.

Lebanon is concerned with what may be turning into a trend after three Lebanese Army soldiers defected this week and joined ISIS and the Syrian rebels, ostensibly to fight Assad and Hezbollah.

ISIS released a video about the defections which received a lot of publicity.

All three soldiers are Sunnis, and Sunnis make up 50% of the Lebanese army.

There is a lot of sectarian friction in Lebanon. Hezbollah, which is part of the Lebanese government, has been preventing the appointment of a new Maronite president for the country.

Breaking down allegiances, 40% of Lebanon is Christian, 54% are Muslims, evenly split between Shiite and Sunnis. The rest are mostly Druze.

To help make the picture a little more clear:

Hezbollah are Shiites.

ISIS is Sunni.

Saudi Arabians are mostly Sunni.

Hamas are Sunnis.

Iran is mostly Shiite.

Assad’s Syria is Allawite. The rest of Syria is mostly Sunni.

In the new Middle East, it seems the traditional religious lines are invisible when it comes to who is fighting whom.

Arab Conspiracy Theory Preceded Kidnap Attempt of Jewish Boy in Djerba [video]

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Tunis’s Jewish community on the island of Djerba is worried after three Muslims tried to kidnap a 12 year old Jewish boy from within the center of the community, according to a b’Hadrei Hareidim report.

The boy told the police that a strange man tried to force him into a taxi at which point the boy began screaming.

People passing by saw the kidnapping attempt and the kidnappers then fled when they began to attract attention.

The boy’s parents have filed a report with the Tunisian police, and the community heads have requested extra protection for the holiday.

The kidnapping attempt appears to not have happened in a vacuum. The latest crazy Arab conspiracy theory may have played a central role in the attack.

Last week, the Tunisian newspaper Alshruk, began making strange claims that ISIS has been kidnapping Syrian and Iraqi children, transporting them to Turkey, and then selling them to Jews in Tel Aviv at the rate of $10,000 a child.

Al Mayadeen News, which is watched by Arabs throughout the Middle East has been getting the newspaper’s report out to the wider Arab audience. That news report was discovered by an NRG report in Israel.

Here’s the kicker of the conspiracy theory, the kidnapped Arab children are then turned into Settlers to expand the Zionist Enterprise.

If the Arabs in Tunis are being fed conspiracy stories like that from their mainstream media, there is no wonder there was a kidnapping attempt against the Jewish community of Djerba.

Djerba is one of the oldest Jewish communities in the Diaspora, going back thousands of years, from the period of the destruction of the First Temple period.

While now mostly empty of Jews, it is famous for the fact that most of its residents are Cohanim, including descendants of Ezra HaSofer, and that none of its permanent residents are Levites, due to a curse placed on any Levite that lives there.

Israeli Arab Who Joined ISIS Killed in Iraq

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

An Arab citizen form Israel who left his home in the Galilee this year and joined the ISIS has been killed in fighting in Iraq.

He was identified as 23-year-old Hamed Mohammed Habashi, 23, who is believed to have traveled to Turkey and to Syria.

Other Israeli Arab also have joined the Islamic State, which is a magnet for jihadists to help fulfil the ISIS aim of turning Israel into a Muslim country that is to be part of an Islamic Caliphate.

Hamas is mild stuff compared with ISIS in terms bravado, making it attractive to wannabe gung-ho jihadists.

“Unfortunately, lately we’ve been hearing about a lot of youths and men of religion who support the Islamic State. I don’t understand this. This is an organization that must be classified as a first-class terror organization,” A Galilee Muslim cleric told Yediot Acharonot.

As previously reported, several Arabs from Israel, including some from Judea and Samaria, have joined Al Qaeda and rebel forces fighting Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

ISIS flags are the new rage in Israel, and several have been seen flying in Israeli cities.

ISIS Overtakes Syrian-Turkish Border Town of Kobani

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has advanced into the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, right on the Turkish border.

More than 2,000 women, children and other Syrian Kurds were evacuated from the town a day earlier, on Monday, according to a statement by a member of the PYD Kurdish Democratic Union Party, quoted by the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Between three and four thousand ISIS fighters have been advancing steadily towards the town for days, although Kurdish fighters have held them off for some time.

As of Tuesday, however, two ISIS flags were seen to be flying over the eastern side of Kobani, visible to Reuters journalists monitoring the action from the Turkish side of the border. The reporters said they could also hear sporadic gunfire.

U.S.-led coalition air strikes against the ISIS forces apparently were not effective in stopping the ISIS fighters.

Kurdish Female Suicide Bomber Kills Dozens of ISIS Terrorists in Death

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

A desperate act by a female Kurdish defender in the ISIS-besieged town of Kobani in Syria eliminated dozens of the savage global jihadists but they ultimately managed to breach Kurdish defenses.

Arin Mirkan blew herself up on the eastern flank of Kobani, allowing Kurdish forces to strike back at fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) who were shelling the town on three sides with tanks and mortar fire.

First reported by the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Mirkan’s suicide bombing significantly slowed down the ISIS advance, which was less than a mile away from Kobani at the time.

But on Tuesday, ISIS terrorists succeeded in taking several buildings in Kobani and gained attacking positions from two sides of the city, according to sources quoted by the Observatory. Two ISIS flags were still visible over the eastern side of Kobani, according to Reuters reporters watching from across the Turkish side of the border, who said they also heard sporadic gunfire.

More than 2,000 Syrian Kurds, including women and children, were evacuated from the town on Monday, according to the PYD Kurdish Democratic Union Party.

The Kurdish YPG (People’s Defense Units) reported the same day that 15 of its fighters had died in action against ISIS. Kobani spokesperson Idris Nahsen told the Observatory the current US-led Allied air strikes alone were not enough to help hold off the ISIS advance.

At least 33 ISIS fighters and 23 Kurdish defenders were killed during seven US-led coalition air strikes in the Kobani area, according to the Observatory.

“Of our martyrs was valiant comrade Arin [Mirkan], she was able to perform a fedai action [self-immolation] and kill dozens of ISIS mercenaries and stop their advance, such strong will and determination shown by comrade Arin will be the spirit of resistance in the hearts of all of our combatants of the People’s Defence Units and Women’s Defence Units,” said a YPG statement quoted by the International Business Times.
