Iraqi Turkmen Militia claim they captured 3 MİT (Turkish Intel) members among ISIS fighters in Tuz Kh

How long will it take for the West to understand that the problem behind extremism is Islam itself? When Islam is the problem it is impossible to create a secure environment for citizens in any country while allowing Islam, mosques and religious Muslims to exist in such a society.

Here we now have Turkish intelligence joining ISIS. Turkey, supposedly a strong candidate for EU membership…. What a sick joke this liberal political reasoning (lack thereof) is! Turkey has been facilitating terrorists into Syria for a long time. That alone should speak volumes.

The dreamer: Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan dreaming of becoming the new Ottoman caliph.

Why it was right to refuse James Foley’s ransom

Originally posted on Money Jihad:

ISIS demanded a $132 million ransom a week prior to their beheading of American journalist James Foley. The New York Times reports that the U.S. declined to pay.

Several commentators including David Rohde of Reuters and James Traub of Foreign Policy have taken the opportunity to question the so-called “U.S. and U.K.” policy against paying ransoms.

Actually, refusing to pay ransoms to terrorists isn’t just an idiosyncrasy of American and British policy; it is international law. UN Resolution 1904 forbids the payment of ransoms. Furthermore, an agreement by the G8 in 2013 pledged to refrain from paying ransoms.

The critics of the “U.S.” no-ransom policy omit this information either out of laziness or bias.  True, some European governments pay ransoms under the table, which is very damaging to international security, but that is in violation of international accords and their own publicly stated policies.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI agents to guard UK airports against jihadi fanatics

From: Sunday Express – www.express.co.uk
By: Caroline Wheeler & Amardeep Bassey, August 24, 2014

DOZENS of FBI agents are to be posted at UK ­airports amid fears that Britain’s anti-terrorism efforts are failing to keep track of jihadi fanatics.

Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months.

They will monitor suspect passengers as well as ­investigate “terror hot-spots” across Britain in the wake of the beheading of American James Foley in Iraq. Last night, however, critics claimed their arrival was an admission that cuts to police and the UK Border Force had left Britain out of its depth and…

VERMONT RESTAURANT REMOVES BACON SIGN DUE TO MUSLIM OPPOSITION AND SAFETY CONCERNS

From: www.breitbart.com
by Michelle  Moons, August 23, 2014

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns.  

The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report. WPTZ wrote that the woman who complained online called the sign “insensitive to…

REPORT: Hillary’s Islamist “Rebels” Now Control Tripoli Airport In Libya

Originally posted on The Last Refuge:

The “rebels” who benefited from Samantha Power, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton’s R2P intervention in Libya are now in control of the primary international airport in Tripoli.

In essence this means al-Qaeda now has access to internationally capable 747’s.   Um, well, heads’ up.

Libya Banner 2

Golfing-While-the-World-BurnsLIBYA - Islamist fighters in the Fajr Libya (Libyan Dawn) coalition said on Saturday they have captured Tripoli’s battered international airport after many days of clashes with nationalist militiamen.

The claim followed a setback the previous night when a mystery warplane raided Islamist positions, killing at least 10 fighters, a Fajr Libya spokesman said.

If independent sources confirm the airport has changed hands, it would be a major defeat for the nationalist fighters from Zintan west of Tripoli who have held the airport since the fall of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.

A statement shown on screen on An-Nabaa television, regarded as close to the Islamists, said:…

U.S. Jihadi killings: why minimal media coverage?

Ali Muhammad Brown – Essex County Prosecutor’s Office

There was very little national news coverage regarding the arrest and charging last week of Ali Muhammad Brown a Seattle resident and Muslim convert.  Brown went on a killing spree that took place on the west and east coasts of the U.S. involving the murders of 4 people.

What coverage that could be found was primarily from local outlets.   Some of those tended to skit around that fact that Brown’s motives were based on his devotion to Islam.

European study: rates of Islamic radicalization of immigrant population vary from country to country

US launched raid in Syria to rescue American hostages held by Islamic State

Published on Aug 20, 2014 by Mass Tea Party

 

Long War Journal, By

The US military attempted to rescue “a number of American hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State,” the Department of Defense’s spokesman said today. The rescue attempt failed as the hostages were not at the location of the raid.

“The United States attempted a rescue operation recently to free a number of American hostages held in Syria by the [Islamic State,or ISIL],” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement released on the Department of Defense’s website. “This operation involved air and ground components and was focused on a particular captor network within ISIL. Unfortunately, the mission was not successful because the hostages were not present at the targeted location.”

The exact location of the raid inside Syria was not disclosed by the US military.

Kirby indicated that top tier US special operations forces, likely Navy SEALs or Army Delta teams, were involved in the rescue operation. “In this case, we put the best of the United States military in harms’ way to try and bring our citizens home,” Kirby said.

Kirby indicated that the military will continue to seek to free the US hostages.

“The United States government uses the full breadth of our military, intelligence and diplomatic capabilities to bring people home whenever we can,” he said. “The United States will not tolerate the abduction of our people, and will work tirelessly to secure the safety of our citizens and to hold their captors accountable.”

The Islamic State is known to hold one American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff, who was captured near the Syria-Turkey border in August 2013. Kirby was clear that there are multiple hostages. At least three other Americans, Austin Tice, and two others who have not been named at the request of their families, are known to have disappeared in Syria. A US intelligence official told The Long War Journal that Tice and the other two Americans are also being held by the Islamic State.

The US has launched at least one other special operations raid in Syria since 2008. In October 2008, special operations forces killed Abu Ghadiya, a senior al Qaeda leader who has been in charge of the group’s Syrian network since 2005, and several aides during a raid in Albu Kamal. The Al Nusrah Fornt, al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, have named a training camp after Abu Ghadiya.

Military continues airstrikes against Islamic State despite threats

The military’s announcement of the hostage rescue operation took place just one day after the Islamic State beheaded James Wright Foley, an American journalist who was captured by the group in Binesh, Syria on Nov. 22, 2012. A videotape of the execution was released on the Internet.

The Islamic State has threatened to kill Soltoff if the US does not end the airstrikes against the jihadist group in northern Iraq.

“The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” the Foley’s executioner said as he grasped the collar of the orange jumpsuit worn by a terrified Sotloff.

But the US military said today that it is continuing air operations in Iraq. In a press release issued by US Central Command, the military said it executed 14 airstrikes against Islamic State “terrorists in support of Iraqi security force operations, using fighter, remotely piloted and attack aircraft.”

“The strikes destroyed or damaged six ISIL Humvees, three IED emplacements, one mortar tube, and two armed trucks,” CENTCOM said.

CENTCOM confirmed that the US military has launched “a total of 84 airstrikes across Iraq … and of those 84 strikes, 51 have been in support of Iraqi forces near the Mosul Dam.”

The US military aided the Iraqi military and Kurdish Peshmerga’s advance to retake the Mosul Dam and nearby towns after the Peshmerga withdrew with little opposition in early August.

Earlier today, US Secretary of State John Kerry referred to the Islamic State as “evil” in a statement condemning the execution of Foley.

Most importantly the previously unknown “Second Presidential Finding Memo” to the CIA in 2012 specifically directed to arm/aid ISIL in Syria. The new information from the month before the Benghazi attack explains the motive of the Turkish delegation toward Chris Stevens.

Palestinians, the UN’s phoney refugees

We have written many times here at RRW about the ‘Palestinians’ as pawns, as the people doomed to be called ‘refugees’ from generation to generation perpetually cared for by a special agency (just for Palestinians!) known as UNRWA.
