The ISIS terrorist network has never been camera shy, just as long as they are the ones posting the video footage to social media.
While the same Islamic jihadists have delighted in flooding the internet with videos of them slitting the throats of bound and blindfolded Egyptian Christians, or proudly displaying what passes as military prowess by burning alive captured Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot Lt. Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh, the same terrorists simply aren’t as tough as they’d like the world to believe. Continue reading “ISIS ‘fighter’ wails and moans when captured by Kurdish Peshmerga forces”→
For those who thought all Islamic jihadists were exclusively bearded Muslim males between the ages of 16 to 35 and not so nattily attired in all back dishdasha thobes, of course with the occasional female sporting the latest in burka haute couture with a bomb vest secreted beneath, you better guess again. The stereotypical look of Islamic jihadists just made a seismic shift, much to the chagrin of security personnel everywhere attempting to protest their respective people and nation from the sanguine goals of jihadists across the globe.
With the Australian nation still rocked by last week’s Islamic jihadist murder of a law enforcement office worker in broad daylight, a Federal Senate candidate is leaving little to the imagination where she stands on allowing more Muslim refugees into her nation. As reported by the News Corp Australia news network on Oct. 8, 2015, and also by the Agence France-Presse via Yahoo!7 News (of Sydney, Australia) on Oct. 6, 2015, candidate Pauline Hanson has come right out and said it: No more Muslims.
While Europe nations from the Balkans to Scandinavia are attempting to cope with at least hundreds of thousands of refugees already on the continent, the leaders of the three largest Christian Churches in all of Christendom, albeit to various degrees, are exhorting the faithful to assist the migrants. While the Pontiff of Rome, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, and the Patriarch of Moscow and all Rus’ have expressed varying degrees of support for the migrants, the pushback is coming from an unexpected source; the Christian laity.

While it’s arguable that the majority of children in the Western World would consider their parents taking away their iPhones for more than a day as cruel and unusual punishment, children in the ISIS occupied regions of Syria and Iraq could only wish their lives were as pampered. As reported by Evan Williams of Great Britain’s Channel 4 news service on Oct. 1, 2015, the ISIS terrorist organization is literally giving children an offer they can’t refuse. Continue reading “Boy soldiers of Allah; torture, execution for those who refuse”→
In the wake of Barack Obama’s diplomatically finalized nuclear deal with Iran, the ayatollahs have found themselves with even deeper pockets then they already have. With Iran already perched atop a veritable ocean of oil, the ayatollahs calling the shots in the Tehran-government now have the international green light to go forward with not only a nuclear program, but thanks to Barack Obama and John Kerry, they will soon have access to well over a tenth of a trillion American dollars. Continue reading “Flush with Yankee cash, Iran buys $21 billion of Russian aircraft, satellites”→
Russian President Vladimir Putin has long been accused of attempting to resurrect the long dead Russian Empire. If the former KGB Lt. Col.’s moves in the war-torn nation of Syria are any indication of his real intentions, the accusations may be true.
Sometimes, a nation’s leaders must draw the line between what is a refugee crisis and what is an invasion. Much like a nation’s leaders must draw the line when it come to spending the taxpayers money even when that same nation is estimated to be just a few short months away from seeing itself at an eye popping $19 trillion in debt.
Hungarian camerawoman Petra Laszlo is seeing many a wagging finger aimed directly at her from well-heeled pundits who wouldn’t know a real refugee from a bowl of kimchee. As it turns out, the Magyar media matron was caught on film giving a trip to an alleged refugee who was also seen on film trying to give Hungarian police the slip.
While the American media focuses in on the Trump vs. Fiorina verbal zinger-fest with laser-like precision, foreign news services are picking up the Yankee slack on reporting of the Russian military build-up in the Middle East. As reported by Great Britain’s The Guardian and Israel’s military-centric new media portal DEBKAfile, both on Sept. 17, 2015, and also The Manila Times on Sept. 16, 2015, Russian Naval Infantry (Marines) have left their coastal bases and heading for a showdown with the Islamic jihadists situated further inland.
While most in the American media have essentially turned a blind eye to the Russians flexing their military muscle in Syria, even the handful that have acknowledged the Russian build-up as little more that the expansion of a fairly obscure airstrip on the Syrian coast. And with that expansion comes a handful of Russian Marines for base security and a handful of air defense missiles.Yet the latest from the Middle East is that the Russians have hit the ground with the most offensive weapons since morning breath and body odor.
There are certain things that all Corps of Marines have in common regardless of nationality. Case in point would be one of the official functions of the American Marine Corps: “for service with the fleet in the seizure or defense of advanced naval bases…” With a flurry of reports coming out of the eastern Mediterranean hitting the news wires by the moment, it certainly appears that the Russian Marines have the same duties as their American counterparts.
Australia and Great Britain share Queen Elizabeth II as their Sovereign, and at least technically, she still holds the title as the Queen of Australia. Both nations also share a bit of a problem with militant Islamic jihadists wanting to kill their respective citizens who may stand in their way of their stated desire of establishing a sharia-compliant global caliphate. Case in point would be in two separate news reports from opposite ends of the globe.
On the heels of Pamela Geller hosting the Mohammed Art Exhibit and Contest, and also the Gardland Police Department themselves hosting a subsequent and somewhat impromptu marksmanship clinic held on the spot, one of the guests of honor at the Texas event is planning on his own “Draw Mohammed” exhibition. As reported by the Breitbart.com news portal on May 7, 2015, Dutch Member of Parliament and anti-Sharia activist Geert Wilders (pronounced: Heert Veelders) plans on taking the cartoon renderings of the founder of Islam on the road in his native Holland.
The Islamic Jihadist terrorist organization who now go by the nome de démentiel of simply the Islamic State (IS) have never been quite shy of showing off their various barbaric and savage acts committed against helpless captives. Yet as reported by the right-of-center Breitbart.com news portal on April 23, 2015, Islamic State’s Ladies Auxiliary is doing their level best to ensure gender equality when it comes to blood-soaked atrocities against vulnerable victims.
Three British schoolgirls have taken it upon themselves to not only saddle up with the IS terrorists in Syria, they’ve decided to throw in their lot with the largest and arguably most vicious women-only sub-groups, dubbed by the typically understated British press as a “fearsome group”. Correctly titled the al-Khansaa Brigade (Khansaa, Arabic for Gazelles), the sanguine reputation of the group precedes the latest news report.
As reported, the three London girls are identified as Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, who have reportedly crossed into IS occupied Syrian territory through Turkey last February, and are now full fledged members of the al-Khansaa Brigade. Deployed in the IS de facto capital city of Raqqa, the gyno-guerrillas are a much feared arm of the Islamic Jihadists version of Saudi Arabia’s notorious Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, better known in the West as simply the “Morality Police”.
The Atlantic magazine published on Sept. 10, 2014, Abu Ahmad, an ISIS official in Raqqa, said of the al-Khansaa Brigade, “We have established the Brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law”. For emphasis, the terrorist added, “Jihad is not a man-only duty. Women must do their part as well.” Typical of the Brigade’s enthusiasm for enforcing Islamic Sharia Law would be the cited case of an anonymous Raqqa female teen who found herself “snatched from the street by a group of armed women for walking without an escort and wearing her headscarf incorrectly.”
While the Saudis sharia-compliant Goon Squad is armed only with mere wooden canes, the al-Khansaa Brigade tote surplus Russian AK-47s in the performance of their duties, as well as other tools of the trade that would be just at home in a horror film. The Syrian human right group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently reports that the IS ladies have pressed into service an instrument simply know as the “Biter”. Much like a Mountain Man’s animal trap, the Biter is “composed of two iron jaws including sharp pointed tusks.” Placed firmly on the prisoner’s breasts, the Biter is infamous for the amount of pain inflicted.
With Italy being hammered by an “unprecedented” wave of illegal immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East flooding the country, Italian police are investigating accusations that passengers from latest rescued boatload have actually murdered fellow passengers based on their being Christians. As reported by the Associated Press (via Yahoo News) on April 16, 2015, Sicilian police have arrested 15 African Muslims of killing 12 fellow Africans of murder by throwing them overboard. According to the handful of Christians who survived, the 12 were killed based on nothing more than their profession of faith to Christ.
Not quite reaching his 20th birthday, native born Londoner Brusthom Ziamani was sentenced at the Old Bailey to a 22 year prison stretch for conspiring to murder by decapitation either a British soldier or school child currently enrolled in the nation’s Army Cadet Force, the British version of American high school ROTC. As reported by Great Britain’s BBC and also by the Associated Press (via The News Tribune of Tacoma, Washington), both on 20 March, 2015, Brusthom Ziamani, 19-years-old, was found guilty of ‘preparing an act of terrorism’ last month. But today, Judge Timothy Pontius sentenced the would-be killer to spend the next 22 years of his rather short life locked behind bars in one of Her Majesty’s Prisons.
Rationalizing their choice of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo as the winner of the International Islamophobe of the Year award by citing how Jews were “otherised” by the Third Reich, a British Muslim advocacy group has decided to take “a light-hearted” and “tongue in cheek” swipe at the satirical and often provocative publication. Somehow, the same advocacy group failed to mention the dozens killed or wounded by Islamic jihadists during a recent military-style assault on the magazine’s main office in Paris.
Possibly not using the same style of converting unbelievers that Saint Francis Xavier used, fanatical Islamic jihadists in Australia have reportedly threatened a parliamentarian with decapitation unless she converts to Islam, and then champion’s instituting Shari’a law Down Under. As reported by Radio New Zealand and also Sky News of Australia, both on March 1, 2015, Senator Jacqui Lambie, and Independent from the island state of Tasmania, has responded to threats communicated to her by letting the self described “mujahiddin” understand in no uncertain terms that she has no intention of backing down or to be cowed by their threats. As the legislator stated to the press, “I will continue to speak out about the threat that supporters of Islamic State and Sharia law pose to the Australian democratic culture and people.”
Whispered in the shadows of power in recent years that the Saudis have come to a secret military alliance with the supposed much hated Israelis. While many Middle East watchers are of the opinion that the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia consider Iran to be a much greater threat than any Jewish government that could ever come out of Jerusalem.
As noted by the Washington Free Beacon on Feb. 25, 2015, Israel’s Channel Two News is reporting that the Saudis have very quietly given permission to the Israelis permission to fly over Saudi airspace in the event the Jerusalem government plans on wiping out Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities. Citing a “knowledgeable” European official in Brussels as stating “The Saudi authorities are completely coordinated with Israel on all matters related to Iran.”
With the Shiites of Iran and Sunnis of Saudi Arabia literally blood enemies, the body count on both sides make the South-Side of Chicago look more like Provo, Utah on a nondescript Wednesday night. To up the ante, the Saudis have made clear that the closer the mullahs and ayatollahs in Tehran get to membership into the nuclear club, the diplomats from the House of Saud have already secured tactical nuclear weapons from The Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
On Nov. 6, 2013 the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) cited multiple sources that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has not only invested in Pakistan’s nuclear weapons arsenal, but an anonymous NATO source tells the BBC’s Mark Urban that the Saudis now have Pakistani-manufactured nuclear weapons “sitting ready for delivery.” The Israeli-centric news portal the Debka File of Jerusalem cited on Nov. 17, 2013 that French President Francois Holland and his Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius quietly arrived in Israel’s capital for talks with regional powers concerning aligning the Gallic Republic with the Middle Eastern powers against the Iranian threat.
Possibly signaling more of the areas political goings-on than the average American is aware, Debka File stated matter-of-factly that French leaders are in Jerusalem to determine how their country could incorporate themselves into a military and political alliance with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, The United Arab Emirates and Jordan. With the latest news to come out of Jerusalem, the alliance may be already in place, however secret. Since the Iranian-allied ISIS terrorists savagely executed a Jordanian Air Force pilot and also 21 Egyptian Christians, both ISIS and the Iranians have gone out of their way to make enemies of both King Abdullah II of Jordan and President al-Sisi of Egypt.
In the oft chance the Pakistani deal should happen to fall through for the the deal initially brokered by the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, with a wink and a nod it’s clearly understood in the shadowy world of realpolitik that the Saudis will give any assistance to the Israelis needed to unleash as many of their estimated 200 nuclear devices in Iran as needed. And the Iranians have plenty to worry about. Other than Israel’s vaunted IDF Air Force, the Israeli Navy maintains a small but extremely lethal submarine fleet that is more than capable of launching nuclear-tipped cruise missiles almost the entirety of the Iranian nation.
Despite Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi having been described as a devout Muslim, he’s made it clear he has very little love for the Islamic jihadist terrorist organization that now goes by the nom du terrorisme of the Islamic State (IS). The North African leader’s disdain for the hard core shari’a fundamentalists is to such a degree, he’s called for a pan-Arab military organization to counter the terrorists growing threat.
As reported by CNN via KSPR (of Springfield, Missouri) on Feb. 23, 2015, and also by the Jerusalem Post on Feb. 24, 2015, President al-Sisi took to the airwaves as he said in a televised speech to the nation, “The need for a unified Arab force is growing and becoming more pressing every day.” Without giving specifics of his call for the Arab World to unite to his banner, al-Sisi reportedly told his nation that Jordan and the United Arab Emirates have already come on-board in a military union.
While the issue of ground troops has yet to be made public, those in military circles have made clear that air power alone will never defeat the threat posed by Islamo-terrorists. CNN military analyst and retired Army Maj. Gen. James “Spider” Marks stated “it’s about time” an Arab leader the likes of President al-Sisi finally went public in calling on the Muslim World to destroy ISIS, “Strategically and politically for the region, this is a big deal, and it’s absolutely the right first step.”
As noted by Foreign Affairs magazine on Sept. 15, 2014, when Barack Obama ordered the U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq in late 2011, ISIS had as few as 800 members in the embattled nation. Since Obama’s about face in Iraq, ISIS has taken control of huge tracts of land in Iraq, Syria and Libya. Meanwhile, the total strength has been estimated by the Russians at 70,000, while the Kurds approximate their total under arms at 200,000. Various reports have also bubbled to the surface stating that the terrorist network has operatives as far away as the Philippines and Sweden, to as close as Yemen and Lebanon.
