Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, and Jihad Against Police Media has avoided talk of the cop-killer's Muslim background and motivations.

At 2:45 p.m., Saturday, December 20, 2014, Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley approached two people on a street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. After requesting that they follow him on Instagram, he told them, “Watch what I’m going to do.” Within 2 minutes, at 2:47 p.m., Brinsley reached the passenger window of a marked police car, and fired a lethal barrage at the heads of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Fleeing into a nearby subway station, pursued by police officers, Ismaaiyl Brinsley stopped, and shot himself, fatally, in the head.
Immediate post-mortem accounts riveted, appropriately, on Brinsley’s history of mental illness, personal failure, and paroxysms of violent anger—he even wounded his Baltimore area girlfriend, just before departing by bus for New York City, that fateful Saturday morning. However, by Saturday, Brinsley had focused his vengeful rage on the recent deaths of Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y., and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. According to the now rigidly enforced narrative, Brinsley executed Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in cold blood due, solely, to his warped perception of their “shared culpability” in the tragic deaths of Garner and Brown.

Although, doubtless, the aforementioned psycho-social factors contributed in significant measure to Brinsley’s heinous actions, major media reportage and “pundit” commentaries have scrupulously—and selectively—avoided any serious discussion of his Muslim background, and related pursuits, all of which can be gleaned from his social media accounts (see hereherehere; and here). This willful lacuna in media coverage and analysis is unacceptable given the current spate of Muslim jihadist violence targeting Western institutions of authority, notably, the police (see herehere; and here).  Whether such violence is fueled, additionally, by mental illness, etc., or not, we know that Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, official spokesman for, and a senior leader of, the Islamic State, openly encouraged Western Muslims to attack non-Muslims within their own societies in a September 22, 2014 pronouncementConsistent with traditional, authoritative Islamic jihad war jurisprudence’s designation of even enemy non-combatant “harbis” (those non-Muslims from the “dar al-harb” [“lands of war”] not submitted to Islamic law) as licit targets of sanguinary attacks, al-Adnani, gave broad license to murderous assaults on Western “disbelievers”:
If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn.
But attacks on law enforcement merited a specific priority for al-Adnani:
Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves.
Indeed the same day (12/20/14) Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley committed his execution-style murder of two policemen in Brooklyn,  a French convert to Islam, Bertrand Nzohabonayo (aka “Bilal”), entered a police station in Joué-lès-Tours, central France, and shouted “Allahu Akbar”—“Allah is greater”—a jihadist war cry dating from its declaration by Islam’s prophet Muhammad as he made a murderous foray against the Jews of the Khaybar oasis (allegedly in 629 C.E.). Nzohabonayo/“Bilal,” who had earlier in the week updated his Facebook page profile with a photo of the black flag of the Islamic State, proceeded to stab three police officers, before he was shot and killed. Investigators subsequently maintained this ostensible “lone wolf” jihadist supported the Islamic State.
On September 23, 2014, a day after al-Adnani’s ISIS invocation for jihad terror attacks in the West was published, Abdul Numan Haider, an 18 year-old Afghan Muslim immigrant to Australia, was shot dead after stabbing two Melbourne policemen with a small knife. A search of Haider’s body revealed an additional larger knife, and an ISIS flag. Police investigators believed that Haider had intended to behead the officers, drape their bodies in the ISIS flag, and then photograph the grisly images for internet posting—all in accord with ISIS instructions for jihadists.
One month later—October 23, 2014—another (prior) jihadist attack on the New York Police Department (NYPD) waslaunched by hatchet-wielding Muslim convert Zayle Thompson. Before he was shot dead, Thompson’s savage hatchet attack seriously wounded one officer, who was struck in the head, but almost miraculously survived the wounds he sustained. When queried by neighbors about how he was spending his time at home, Thompson reportedly said, “I’m reading the Koran. I converted to Islam.” In September, he had commented:
If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah! [Wage jihad for Allah]
Thompson’s Facebook page featured the cover image from the book Golden Age of the Moor, which portrays a turbaned, fully armed Muslim jihadist. Thompson also viewed jihadist propaganda and recruitment videos from ISIS, al Qaeda and al-Shabaab. Writing on Facebook, Thompson declared:
America’s military is strong abroad, but they have never faced an internal mass revolt. They are weaker at home. We are scattered and decentralized, we can use this as an advantage. Helicopters, big military will be useless on their own soil. They will not be able to defeat our people if we use guerilla warfare. Attack their weak flanks . . . If you get wounded who cares. If you die who cares. Eventually they will surrender and then the war will be over.
NYPD spokesman John Miller noted, aptly,
It appears that this [jihadist attack] is something he has been thinking about for some time.
Although till now almost entirely ignored, Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley’s Muslim background may also prove relevant, and must be examined. For example, Brinsley’s potential association with the notorious jihadist hotbed al-Farooq mosque in Brooklyn most assuredly needs to be clarified. Another important, and perhaps related line of investigation should explore why Brinsley highlighted an image of Koran sura (chapter) 8, verse 60—one of several Koranic exhortations sanctioning jihad terror—at his Facebook page.
Koran 8:60 is a central Islamic motif, invoked by Islam’s prophet Muhammad, and during our era, Iran’s constitution, the Pakistani Army, and the Muslim Brotherhood. (“Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.”)
Dr. Tina Magaard—a Sorbonne-trained linguist specializing in textual analysis—published detailed research findings in 2005 (summarized in 2007) comparing the foundational texts of ten major religions. Magaard concluded from her hard data-driven analyses:
The texts in Islam distinguish themselves from the texts of other religions by encouraging violence and aggression against people with other religious beliefs to a larger degree [emphasis added]. There are also straightforward calls for terror. This has long been a taboo in the research into Islam, but it is a fact that we need to deal with.
Muhammad himself was the ultimate prototype sanctioning jihad terror, as recorded in this canonical hadith (Sahih Bukhari: Book 4, Volume 52, Number 220):
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy; Koran 8:60)…”
Maulana Muhammad Shafi (1898-1976), a former grand mufti of India (prior to the August, 1947 partition), was the author of Maariful Qur’an, which remains the best-known Koranic commentary in Urdu. He also wrote more than three hundred books, and in addition to these literary works, broadcasted his Koranic commentary on Radio Pakistan for a number of years. Here is the crux of his gloss on Koran 8:60—a timeless call for aggressive, conquering not merely “defensive” jihad:
The real purpose of acquiring and storing military hardware, whether for initiated action or defense…is to bring down the force of Kufr and Shirk [unbelief] and fill the hearts of their protagonists with awe so that they stay suppressed…[for example] the disbelievers of Mecca and the Jews of Medina…Then, there were other people too, those whom the Muslims did not know yet. The reference here is the disbelievers and polytheists of the whole world who had not come up against Muslims, yet in the future were to clash against them…
The 17th century Muslim historian al-Maqqari explained that the panic created by the Arab horsemen and sailors, at the time of the Muslim expansion in the regions subjected to those raids and landings, facilitated their later conquest,
Allah thus instilled such fear among the infidels that they did not dare to go and fight the conquerors; they only approached them as suppliants, to beg for peace.
This shared, mainstream Sunni and Shi’ite doctrine on jihad is the validating context in which Shi’ite Iran’s 1979Constitutional provision on its self-proclaimed “Ideological Army,” must be evaluated. Invoking Koran 8:60, the 1979 Iranian Constitution declares:
In the formation and equipping of the country’s defence forces, due attention must be paid to faith and ideology as the basic criteria. Accordingly, the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are to be organized in conformity with this goal, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the country, but also for fulfilling the ideological mission of jihad in God’s way; that is, extending the sovereignty of Allah’s law throughout the world (this is in accordance with the Koranic verse “Prepare against them whatever force you are able to muster, and strings of horses, striking fear into the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them” [8:60]).
Contemporary validation of this principle of jihad as described by al-Maqqari—rooted in the Koran—(for example, verses3:1518:128:60, and 33:26)—i.e., to terrorize the enemies of the Muslims as a prelude to their conquest—has also been provided in the mainstream Pakistani text on jihad warfare by Brigadier S.K. Malik, The Quranic Concept of War, originally published in Lahore, in 1979. Malik’s treatise was endorsed in a laudatory Foreword to the book by his patron, then Pakistani President Zia-ul-Haq, as well as a more extended Preface by Allah Buksh K. Brohi, a former Advocate-General of Pakistan. This text—widely studied in Islamic countries, and available in English, Urdu, and Arabic—has been recovered from the bodies of slain jihadists in Kashmir. Brigadier Malik emphasizes how instilling terror is essential to waging successful jihad campaigns:
“Let not the Unbelievers think,” God commands us directly and pointedly, “that they can get the better of the Godly: they will never frustrate them. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.” (Anfal [sura 8]: 59–60)…Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy (sic); it is the decision we wish to impose upon him… “Jehad,” [Jihad] the Quranic concept of total strategy. Demands the preparation and application of total national power and military instrument is one of its elements. As a component of the total strategy, the military strategy aims at striking terror into the hearts of the enemy from the preparatory stage of war…Under ideal conditions, Jehad can produce a direct decision and force its will upon the enemy. Where that does not happen, military strategy should take over and aim at producing the decision from the military stage. Should that chance be missed, terror should be struck into the enemy during the actual fighting.  …the Book [Quran] does not visualize war being waged with “kid gloves.” It gives us a distinctive concept of total war. It wants both, the nation and the individual, to be at war “in toto,” that is, with all their spiritual, moral, and physical resources. The Holy Quran lays the highest emphasis on the preparation for war. It wants us to prepare ourselves for war to the utmost. The test of utmost preparation lies in our capability to instill terror into the hearts of the enemies.
Maimonides, the “second Moses” (d. 1203), was a renowned Talmudist, philosopher, astronomer, and physician. His Epistle to the Jews of Yemen was written about 1172 in reply to inquiries by Jacob ben Netan’el al-Fayyumi, who headed the Jewish community in Yemen. At that time, the Jews of Yemen were experiencing a crisis—hardly unfamiliar to Maimonides—as they were being forced to convert to Islam, a campaign launched in about 1165 by ‘Abd-al-Nabi ibn Mahdi. Maimonides offered the Yemenite Jewish communal leader guidance, and what encouragement he could muster. He makes clear that the unrelenting persecutions of the Jews by the Muslims is tantamount to forced conversion. The Epistle to the Jews of Yemen also provides an unflinchingly honest view of what Maimonides thought of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, and about Islam generally. Maimonides referred to Muhammad—Islam’s prototype jihadist—as a bellicose “ha-meshugga,” “Madman,” whose objective was “procuring rule and submission,” whereby “he invented his well known religion.” The Hebrew term, ha-meshugga, as historian Norman Stillman has observed wryly, was, and remains, “pregnant with connotations.”
Reflecting upon Maimonides timeless wisdom, we must have the intellectual fortitude to contemplate, with candor, from a non-Muslim perspective, whether Islamic jihadism and “madness”/“madmen” may interact in a complementary, even synergistic manner.
Six clay seals found at the archaeological site of Khirbet Summeily in Israel offer evidence that supports the existence of Biblical Kings David and Solomon, says a team of archaeologists led by Dr Jeff Blakely of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
These ancient anepigraphic clay seals were found on a dig site in southern Israel; they offer evidence of government activity in the 10th century BC, a time when many scholars said a kingdom could not exist in the region.

Many modern scientists dismiss David and Solomon as mythological figures and believe no kingdom could have existed in the region at the time the Bible recounted their activities.

The official clay seals, or bullae, unearthed by Dr Blakely’s team at Khirbet Summeily – a small Biblical period village (10th-8th century BC) located in the northern part of Israel’s picturesque Negev desert – provide evidence that some type of government activity was conducted there in that period.

“These bullae were used to seal official correspondence in much the same way wax seals were used on official documents in later periods,” said Dr James Hardin of Mississippi State University, a team member and the lead author of the paper published in the journal Near Eastern Archaeology.
The scientists describe Khirbet Summeily as a borderland area between the heartlands of Judah and Philistia. It was originally assumed to be a small Iron Age farmstead.

However, the excavation of the bullae and other recent finds indicate a level of political organization previously thought not to exist at that time.

“Our dates for the bullae are based on multiple types of evidence we combined to determine a general 10th century B.C. date,” Dr Blakely added.

“The style of the bullae, the types of ancient pottery found in the same contexts as the bullae, the types of Egyptian scarabs found, the style of an Egyptian amulet, and the overall stratigraphy or layering of the site each suggested a 10th century date.”

Two of the bullae the scientists excavated have complete seal impressions, two have partial seal impressions, and two others have none. Two bullae were blackened by fire. One bulla has a well-preserved hole where the string used to seal the document passed through the clay. The impressions in the bullae do not contain writing.

Dr Hardin said: “we are very positive that these bullae are associated with the Iron Age IIA, which we date to the 10th century BC, and which lends general support to the historical veracity of David and Solomon as recorded in the Hebrew Biblical texts. These appear to be the only known examples of bullae from the 10th century, making this discovery unique.”

The finds contribute significantly to an ongoing debate in the scientific community about whether governments or states existed in the early Iron Ages.

The artifacts hold far-reaching implications for the growing number of scientists who maintain that such political organization occurred much later than Biblical texts suggest.

“Some text scholars and archaeologists have dismissed the historic reliability of the Biblical text surrounding kings David and Solomon, such as recorded in the Bible in the books of Kings and Second Samuel, which scholars often date to the Iron Age IIA or 10th century BC,” Dr Hardin explained.

“The fact that these bullae came off of sealed written documents shows that this site – located out on the periphery of pretty much everything – is integrated at a level far beyond subsistence.”

“You have either political or administrative activities going on at a level well beyond those typical of a rural farmstead.”
A team of archaeologists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute of Archaeology has discovered a royal passageway to Herodium, an ancient fortified palace built by King Herod I (73 – 4 BC).

“The main feature of the passageway is an impressive corridor with a complex system of arches spanning its width on three separate levels. These arches buttressed the corridor’s massive side-walls, allowing the king and his entourage directly passage into the palace courtyard,” said team members Dr Roi Porat, Dr Yakov Kalman and Dr Rachel Chachy.

“Thanks to the supporting arches, the 20-m-long and 6-m-wide corridor has been preserved to a height of 20 m.”

The corridor, according to the archaeologists, was built as part of Herod’s plan to turn Herodium into a massive artificial volcano-shaped hill.

“Surprisingly, during the course of the excavations, it became evident that the arched corridor was never actually in use, as prior to its completion it became redundant,” they said.

The corridor was back-filled during the construction of the massive artificial hill at the end of Herod’s reign.

“The upper section of a new monumental stairway stretching from the hill’s base to its peak, constructed during the course of this building phase, appears to have been built over it.”
“The excavators point out that not only was the arched corridor covered over in the course of the construction of the hill-monument, but also all the structures earlier built by Herod on the hill’s slopes.”

“During the excavations, the original impressive palace vestibule, blocked when the corridor became redundant, was also exposed.”

“This entry-room, decorated with splendid painted frescoes, had a magnificent entryway leading into it, and offered evidence of the rebel occupation during the Great Revolt (66-71 CE), including Jewish Revolt coinage and crude temporary structures.”

In addition, the excavations in the arched corridor also turned up impressive evidence from the Bar Kokhba Revolt period (132-135/6 CE): hidden tunnels dug by the rebels as part of the guerilla warfare they waged against the Romans.

“Supported in part by wooden beams, these tunnels exited from the hilltop fortress by way of the corridor’s walls, through openings hidden in the corridor. One of the tunnels revealed a well-preserved construction of 20 or so cypress-wood branches, arranged in a cross-weave pattern to support the tunnel’s roof.

Amnesty International: ISIS Driving Yazidi Women to Suicide Through Rape, Sex Slavery

Amnesty International released a new report this week– Escape from Hell – Torture, Sexual Slavery in Islamic State Captivity in Iraq– that details the gruesome abuse Yazidi women endured at the hands of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in northern Iraq. Militants raped, sold, and forced the females to convert to Islam upon their capture in the region.
“Hundreds of Yezidi women and girls have had their lives shattered by the horrors of sexual violence and sexual slavery in IS captivity,” said Donatella Rovera, Amnesty International’s Senior Crisis Response Advisor. “Many of those held as sexual slaves are children – girls aged 14, 15 or even younger. IS fighters are using rape as a weapon in attacks amounting to war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
Militants did not spare married or pregnant women, such as 19-year-old Abla, “who was pregnant with her second child when she was abducted last August.”
I had my little boy with me and my pregnancy was very visible already but one of the guards chose me to be his wife. He said if I did not consent to marrying him he would sell me on to another man who would take me to Syria. I let him believe that I would marry him and managed to run away before he could carry out his threats.
Terrorists abducted Arwar, 15, near Mount Sinjar in August. They also captured her relatives, but separated everyone as they made their way across Syria and Iraq. Arwar is one victim who spoke to Amnesty International:
In Rambussi we were held in a house with five other girls. There they did to me what they did to many other girls. I was raped. My cousin was not molested; they wanted to take her to marry a man but in the end they left her with us and then we managed to escape. One of the girls said she was not raped but I don’t know if it is true; I hope it is true. Another did not talk about what happened to her. The others were raped. The men were all Iraqis. They said that if we killed ourselves they would kill our relatives.
Unfortunately, many females chose suicide as the way to escape the horror. Luna, 20, told Amnesty International she knew one girl who died:
We were 21 girls in one room, two of them were very young, 10-12 years. One day we were given clothes that looked like dance costumes and were told to bathe and wear those clothes. Jilan killed herself in the bathroom. She cut her wrists and hanged herself. She was very beautiful. I think she knew she was going to be taken away by a man and that is why she killed herself.
Victims told Amnesty International the majority of the “buyers” were men from Iraq and Syria, but there were some from other countries such as Australia. Other buyers were not Islamic State fighters, but only supporters of the terrorists. A Mosul resident said the men “are local businessmen, not fighters.” These men registered their marriages to Yazidi women in a Sharia court. Fawziya, 18, was held with her captor and his entire family.
In the first 10 days we were not molested, the men brought us food and left us alone. Then we were told each of us must choose a husband or else men will choose us. At that time we were kept together, many of us, more than 100. Then we were split in groups, six girls per group, and each group was taken to a different house in Rambussi (near Mount Sinjar). I the house where I was held each girl was with a man from Da’esh; these men were aged between 30-40 years; we were aged between 15 and 20. The man who took me as his wife was about 30 and was from Mosul. He used me as his wife for four days in that house and then he took me to Mosul to his family home. His family did not agree with what Da’esh did to the Yezidi girls but did not do anything to stop it. I was put in a room with his wife, she was also from Mosul, was young and very nice to me. She has two young children, a boy and a girl, with him. His parents did not interfere, but they said if I did not convert to Islam he should give me away or sell me, and get a Muslim wife instead. He took me and his wife and children to Rambussi and said he was going to give me back to the emir (chief). There were other girls in houses nearby and I eventually managed to escape with some other girls.
One 13-year-old girl and her young sister fell into the hands of a man who actually helped them escape.
He took me to his home and I slept in a room with his older wife while he slept in another room with his younger wife. The older wife was very nice to me. He said he had bought me because he felt sorry for me and wanted to send me and my little sister back to my family and indeed he did so.
Proof of the Islamic State’s abuse of Yazidi females leaked out after the militants captured villages in Iraq. In November, a video showed militants laughing and joking while purchasing female Yazidi slaves. A Yazidi slave phoned a Kurdish Peshmerga fighter to beg them and the west to bomb the brothel she lived in. A 14-year-old girl, known as “Narin,” told journalist Mohammed A. Salih she and her friend were given to two Islamic State soldiers as wives or concubines in Fallujah. The two girls managed to escape when their “husbands” left for business. A 17-year-old girl said several different men raped her numerous times. The women often begged the men to kill them.

U.S. Attorney: ISIS Recruiting Ferguson Criminals

ISIS has been actively recruiting Ferguson criminals, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

With tweets that say “Hey blacks, ISIS will save you” and references to Malcolm X and slavery, ISIS was reaching out to criminals during the protests and riots after Michael Brown’s death.
U.S. Attorney Steve Wigginton told KSDK that the federal government has received “intelligence reports for law enforcement showing actual tweets ISIS was putting out encouraging Americans to join the people who were burning down buildings in Ferguson to engage that kind of conduct across America.”

FBI special agent Sean Cox told the outlet, “We are very concerned by threats posed by homegrown violent extremists from individuals who live in the same community they intend to attack.”

“These individuals are difficult for us to detect, as they are able to connect with other extremists with relative ease and they are more capable from an operational standpoint because they are familiar with their intended target areas,” he added.

During the first round of riots and protests in Ferguson, an “ISIS is Here” sign was displayed while CNN was interviewing protesters on the streets.

The 4 Scriptures To Justify ISIS Beheading That Muslims Don’t Want You To Know About, 2.6 percent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity. About seventy-five percent of Muhammad’s biography (Sira) consists of jihad waged on unbelievers.”

According to Dr. Moorthy Muthuswamy, “2.6 percent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity. About seventy-five percent of Muhammad’s biography (Sira) consists of jihad waged on unbelievers.”
Through the midst of countless scriptures condoning, justifying, and commanding violence against those who refuse to convert to Islam, there are four that should cause any non-Muslim to speak out against Islam.
A good Muslim is to study their scripture, cover to cover, and be knowledgeable of the word of Allah. Just as scriptures may be taken individually for examination, they should also be used to confirm and fulfill the other scriptures in the Quran.
Such is the case with ISIS beheading, and the undeniable fact that they are justified by the Quran. Not only that, but it’s acceptable to say that any Muslim is sinning if they are not behaving in the same manner.
Since many unread Muslims have a habit of claiming these abundant verses are simply taken out of context, we have provided backing scriptures to ensure there is no misconstrual, although they are already as candid as could possibly be. So, bear with us as we lead up to the point:
(4:76) Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil. Lo! the devil’s strategy is ever weak.

(2:190-194) Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loves not transgressors [idolators]. And kill them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for persecution and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, kill them. Such is the reward of those who reject faith. But if they cease, God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression. The prohibited month, for the prohibited month, and so for all things prohibited, there is the law of equality. If then any one transgresses the prohibition against you, transgress ye likewise against him. But fear (the punishment of) God, and know that God is with those who restrain themselves.
(5:33) Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.
(8:12) When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”
As you can see, one scripture leads to another, fulfilling the commands of Allah.
Of course, beheading is just one aspect of ISIS’s devotion to spreading Islam.
Dr. David Wood met with the Glazov Gang, a special project by expert Jamie Glazov, to expand upon other barbaric crimes ISIS carries out. In his interview, Wood explains ten Islamic verses that help us to understand why the Islamic State acts as it does, and why we will never see it’s end unless we take action.

Never before has there been such a wealthy, powerful, and barbaric terrorist organization. Since the time of Muhammad 1400 years ago, beheading, raping, slavery, pedophilia, and conquest has been the direct objective to establish a world Caliphate. Just as the Crusades were a desperate response to brutality and ruthlessness of an expansive Islamic rule, the world is in dire need of action to stop the Islamic State.

ISIS Bloody Footprints Lead From NATO Territory.

It was reported recently that Germany’s broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) investigated what turned out to be hundreds of trucks a day carrying billions of dollars in supplies,  flowing into Syria and directly into the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS). 

Turkey, a NATO member since 1952, has played a pivotal role in the destabilization and destruction of neighboring Syria. Since 2011, Turkey has allowed its territory to be used as a transit and staging point for sectarian terrorists flowing from around the world and into Syria in what could be described as a defacto NATO invasion by proxy. 

In 2011, after the Libyan conflict drew to an end in favor of NATO, terrorists it had armed and provided air cover for in North Africa were promptly shipped to Turkey where they then slipped into Syria to engage the Syrian government and its military. Since then, an untold number of terrorists have used not only Turkey as a staging ground, but also Lebanon and Jordan.

In addition to literal terrorists being harbored in NATO territory, security agencies of NATO members including the US and UK, have been active along the Turkish-Syrian border arming, funding. and equipping what they call “moderate rebels.” These moderate rebels have recently been revealed as affiliates of or organized directly organized beneath both Al Qaeda and ISIS.
DW’s report does not implicate merely Turkey in aiding and abetting ISIS, but exposes the fact that ISIS’ supply lines lead from within NATO itself – in other words, ISIS is a creation, perpetuation, and agent of NATO.

Contrary to Western propaganda, Al Qaeda was intentionally organized and directed by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel to engage in a regional confrontation aimed at Iran and its powerful arc of influence. Exposed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 article,  “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” it was stated explicitly that (emphasis added):
To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda
Clearly, ISIS is the verbatim fulfillment of Hersh’s 2007 warning.

And while some may question what took place between 2007 and the current disposition of ISIS today, those documenting the ongoing conflict in Syria starting in 2011 have noted substantial and continued state sponsorship of militants fighting in the Syrian conflict, many of which are now confirmed to be operating under the banner of ISIS.

Headlines over the past 3-4 years including, “C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition,” “First Syria rebels armed and trained by CIA ‘on way to battlefield’,” “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From C.I.A.,” and “Official says CIA-funded weapons have begun to reach Syrian rebels; rebels deny receipt,” reveal ongoing Western support, bridging the gap between the conspiracy exposed by Hersh in 2007 and the current torrent of supplies flowing to ISIS via NATO territory.

It is clear that the ISIS threat was NATO all along, the culmination of a conspiracy spanning at least two US Presidential administrations, and resulting in a regional conflict marked by some of the most horrific barbarism documented in modern history.

With NATO feeding the ISIS threat directly, no serious attempt to destroy ISIS in either Syria or Iraq can be attempted without first cutting its supply lines leading from NATO territory. Clearly the United States, NATO, or regional partners like Israel, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia have any intention of doing so. As indicated by DW’s report, Kurds operating on both sides of the Turkish-Syrian border are attempting to seal off the flow of supplies leading from NATO territory.

The Syrian Arab Army, the Iranian forces supporting anti-ISIS fighters in Syrian territory, and the allies of both countries must insist that strict resolutions are passed to secure the border and stem the flow of ISIS’ lifeline. A clearly worded resolution, if voted down by the likes of the US and its NATO accomplices, will expose further the true nature ISIS and the misanthropic agenda of the West it is a manifestation of.

If the West capitulates and the resolution is passed, further steps toward arming and aiding the Syrian and Iranian governments and their various allies in the securing of the Turkish-Syrian border can be made. From there, the proxy war engineered and executed by the West which has engulfed the region for years, may finally be brought to an end.
