- The Islamic State document said that since the establishment of the Spanish Inquisition in 1478, Spain “has done everything to destroy the Koran.” It said that Spain tortured Muslims, including burning them alive. Therefore, according to the Islamic State, “Spain is a criminal state that usurps our land.” The document calls on jihadists to “reconnoiter airline and train routes for attacks.” It also calls on followers to “poison food and water” with insecticides.
- “We will kill any ‘innocent’ Spanish infidel we find in Muslim lands, and… whether we are European in origin or not, we will kill you in your cities and towns according to our plan.” — Islamic State document, May 30, 2016.
- “We will recover al-Andalus, Allah willing. Oh dear Andalus! You thought we forgot about you. I swear by Allah we have never forgotten you. No Muslim can forget Córdoba, Toledo or Xàtiva. There are many faithful and sincere Muslims who swear they will return to al-Andalus.” — Islamic State video, January 31, 2016.
- “Spain is the land of our forefathers and we are going to take it back with the power of Allah.” — Islamic State video, January 7, 2016.
Islamic militants are stepping up a propaganda war against Spain. In recent months, Islamic State and other jihadist groups have produced a flurry of videos and documents calling on Muslims to reconquer al-Andalus. Continue reading »
TPTB have WW3 planned for us (another staged event, just like WW2).
The Al-Nusra Front in Aleppo keeps receiving tanks and heavy weapons shipped by their Western backers as the US turns a blind eye, Russia’s envoy to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, told the Security Council. He added that securing peace “is almost an impossible task now.”
Al-Nusra Front is currently the most powerful group fighting against the government in Aleppo, with 2,000 out of 3,500 militants in the city the group’s members. Continue reading »
Islamic State says Jesus a ‘slave of Allah’
ISIS is using the latest issue of its online magazine to portray Christianity as a “false” religion and to encourage Muslims to launch more attacks on churches like the one carried out in France last week, Islam experts say.
In the French attack, two ISIS terrorists entered a Catholic church in Normandy and slit the throat of the elderly priest on the altar while he was saying mass. A nun was also critically injured in the attack for which ISIS claimed credit. Continue reading »

“Has anybody else noticed how ALL the media, both the Mainstream and the Alternative have been duped into reporting crap…Charlotte, Brad & Angelina, stupid immigration rants, Election nonsense lies and so on, whilst this….

The smokescreening and deliberate downplaying of the lead in to both the WWlll & Global Economic & monetary collapse should be ringing bells everywhere but it bullshit as usual.
So, what is the panel’s opinion on Brad’s alleged cruelty?”
The US and its allies had established a Field Operations Room in the Aleppo region integrated by intelligence personnel. Until it was targeted by a Russian missile attack on September 20, this “semi-secret” facility was operated by US, British, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi and Qatari intelligence personnel.
According to Fars News, this intelligence facility was attacked by Russia in the immediate wake of the US Air Strikes against Syrian SAA forces at Deir Ezzor in support of the ISIS-Daesh terrorists.“The Russian warships stationed in Syria’s coastal waters targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room, killing over two dozen Israeli and western intelligence officers”
“The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,”
The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains.
The Fars report conveys the impression that the Operations Room was largely integrated by Israelis. In all likelihood, the US was “calling the shots” and the facility was coordinated by Washington’s regional allies, in close liaison with (and on behalf) of the US military and intelligence apparatus.
With the exception of the Fars report and Sputnik Arabic, this Russian attack directed against a US-led coalition intelligence facility has not made the headlines. In fact there has been a total news blackout. The accuracy of the Fars report is yet to be fully ascertained. Continue reading »
Syrian Social Nationalist Party representative Tarek Ahmad says that the war in Syria has reached a dead end, with the intervention of foreign powers turning the situation into a chaotic mess. Moreover, the politician says that Syria is just one front in a Third World War being waged by Washington and its allies.
The Social Nationalist Party is one of Syria’s oldest and largest parties. Up to 8,000 members of its armed branch, known as ‘the Eagles of the Whirlwind’, have successfully fought alongside the Syrian Army against Islamist militants, including Daesh. At the same time, the party has remained a key member of the Popular Front for Change and Liberation, a bloc of opposition parties in the country’s parliament. Continue reading »
US doesn’t like peace deals, they make money from war hence why they started up the attacks again, of course they support ISIS, they want Assad gone, ISIS is their creation.

The head of Austria’s anti-human trafficking force has claimed much of the profit of people smugglers in the Middle East and North Africa is making its way into the bank accounts of Islamic State.
Russian airstrikes have largely destroyed the ability of Islamic State to sell cheap oil on the black market, which, along with ransoms from kidnapping, was for a time their main source of income. Now according to Gerald Tatzgern, the head of Austria’s anti-human trafficking force, the group is being funded by people smuggling and is intentionally protracting the migrant crisis, reports Kurier.

“Erroneous my ASS!!!
He was doing exactly what the Rothschilds told him to do.
They wanted the oil. They’ll do anything to get it using all pawns at their disposal.”
The UK strategy in Libya was based on erroneous facts, and the operation to protect civilians turned into “regime change by military means,” a report by UK Foreign Affairs Select Committee said, adding that ex-PM David Cameron is “ultimately responsible.”
The report dubbed “Libya: Examination of intervention and collapse and the United Kingdom’s future policy options” was released on Wednesday.
“In March 2011, the United Kingdom and France, with the support of the United States, led the international community to support an intervention in Libya to protect civilians from attacks by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi,” the report stated.
However, this policy was not informed “by accurate intelligence” and a limited intervention “to protect civilians drifted into a policy of regime change by military means.” Continue reading »
Counter-terrorism police arrested two brothers suspected of plotting to bring a Paris-style massacre to the streets of Britain yesterday.
The pair, aged 19 and 20, were held in a dawn raid at their West London home after a massive undercover security operation.
They are suspected of trying to get automatic weapons and bomb-making chemicals to stage their own Islamic State-inspired atrocity.

A FRIGHTENING new Islamic State magazine has encouraged lone wolves to attack and kill Australians in public acts of terror.
“Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” an article published on Monday in the new English-language online periodical urged.
“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles.
“Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah [community of Muslims] will be victorious.”
The editorial from the terrorist organisation, entitled Among The Believers Are Men, also alleged that Melbourne man Ezzit Raad, who was convicted over a plan to blow-up the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2005, died while fighting for IS in November 2015. Continue reading »
Just days after the news hit that ISIS’ main propaganda officer, Mohammad al-Adnani, one of the Islamic State’s most prominent leaders, the second in command of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as well as the unofficial spokesman of the terrorist organization, was killed (with a scandal promptly erupting between the US and Russia over who had taken him out), the power vacuum that formed at the top of the Islamic State has been promptly filled, after former Tajik Special Forces colonel Gulmurod Khalimov became the top ISIS battlefield commander in Iraq, after defecting last year and swearing jihad against the West.
Khalimov is set to take the position vacated by Abu Omar al-Shishani, also known as Omar the Chechen, who was killed in the Iraqi city of Shirqat, south of Mosul. in early July and whom the Pentagon described as Islamic State’s “minister of war.”
What makes the ascent of Khalimov particularly embarrassing for the US is that The former paramilitary unit commander of the Tajikistan armed forces received his battlefield training from American advisors and even came to the United States on several occasions to receive special counterterrorism training through the US State Department’s Diplomatic Security/Anti-Terrorism Assistance program.

Much of the UK’s Christian clergy, as well as its government, can stand up and take a bow for this one. It was they who implemented and applauded immigration policies that make it easy for Islamic State jihadis to get into Britain. It was they who stigmatized opposition to mass Muslim migration as racism, bigotry and Islamophobia. Now they are living in the Britain they made.

Pro-Kurdish fighters claim US, Syria, Turkey and Iran are collaborating to undermine them, after having served US as shock troops against ISIS
(MEE) Syria — The Kurdish YPG militia counted the US among its most trusted allies as it fought the Islamic State (ISIS) group in northern Syria. But that all changed on Wednesday. Turkey’s invasion of the border town of Jarabulus, combined with a US warning the YPG will lose its support unless it withdraws from nearby areas, has left the Kurds feeling abandoned.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS, has been known to use weapons and vehicles their militants have seized from rebel forces backed by the United States. But many have also speculated that in the past, members of the terrorist group were trained or provided with weapons by the U.S. government — either directly or indirectly. Now, the rumors have finally been put to rest in a more formal fashion.
On Tuesday, the U.S. State Department announced it would offer a reward of up to $3 million for any information that could lead officials to Gulmurod Khalimov, a former Tajik special operations colonel who, before joining ISIS, received training from the United States through the State Department’s antiterrorism assistance program.

Head of a right-wing think tank says the existence of ISIS serves a “strategic purpose” in the West’s interests
According to a think tank that does contract work for NATO and the Israeli government, the West should not destroy ISIS, the fascist Islamist extremist group that is committing genocide and ethnically cleansing minority groups in Syria and Iraq.
Why? The so-called Islamic State “can be a useful tool in undermining” Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and Russia, argues the think tank’s director. Continue reading »
(SP) Though many scoffed when the Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, Jabhat Al-Nusra, rebranded itself Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham, that cosmetic change was apparently enough to convince the US government to start sending them arms.
In the recent push by rebels in the city of Aleppo, Al-Nusra/Al-Sham took a leading role and was reportedly among the rebels groups who received US weapons. Those weapons will first be used to kill Syrian government troops and after that, well, who knows? Continue reading »

“What do you think would happen near your home if there was a sudden flood of weapons for anybody to use?
Welcome to Soros funded American Foreign Policy.”
The Pentagon has spent billions of dollars since 2001 funneling roughly more than a million assault rifles, pistols, shotguns, and machine guns into Iraq and Afghanistan, helping to fuel lasting conflict there, according to a new report by a London-based nonprofit research and advocacy group Action on Armed Violence.

On Sunday Turkey experienced its deadliest terrorist attack this year. A suspected child suicide bomber struck a wedding celebration in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, killing at least 54 people and injuring dozens more.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan immediately blamed ISIS for the attack. This reaction is especially peculiar given the fact his policies have directly contributed to the growth of ISIS in more ways than one. His government is reportedly providing ISIS fighters with passage through Turkey, weapons, and medical assistance, to name a few examples.
Most interesting, however, is that ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the attack, and as the Guardian notes, ISIS has not historically claimed responsibility for attacks within Turkish territory. This is despite ISIS’ habit of readily praising and accepting responsibility for almost every Western attack — even a mass killing as absurd as the Orlando shooting, which realistically had nothing to do with ISIS.
So let’s do a little bit more digging. Continue reading »

Counterterrorism officers were repeatedly blocked by British security service MI5 from pursuing criminal investigations against Britain’s highest-profile radical preacher, Anjem Choudary, it has been claimed.
Last week, Choudary was found guilty of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL), which seized territory in Iraq and Syria and inspired terrorist attacks across Europe.
Following his conviction, it was revealed that the 49-year-old former lawyer had been linked to at least 15 terrorist plots since 2001. Police also believe he has connections to as many as 500 of the 850 young British Muslims who have traveled abroad to join IS.
According to the Telegraph, counter-terrorism officers often felt they had enough evidence to build a case against the cleric, only to be told to hang fire by MI5 because he was crucial to one of their ongoing investigations. Continue reading »
Shredding the oft- and self-propagated notion the Islamic State is comprised of radical Muslims, the vast majority of the group’s recruits have only superficial knowledge about the religion of Islam — some even purchased the book “Islam for Dummies” just prior to joining.
An analysis of leaked Islamic State documents obtained by Syrian opposition site Zaman al-Wasl and undertaken by the Associated Press found 70 percent of recruits at the height of the group’s push for members only possessed basic knowledge of Shariah, laws derived from verses in the Quran, and “hadith,” the words and actions of the prophet Mohammed.
