The Islamic State is Back . . . in America

The dire cost of Biden’s weakness.

The Islamic State (ISIS) is back. Five years after Donald Trump entered the Oval Office and quickly brought about the destruction of its caliphate in Iraq and Syria, ISIS is resurgent and wealthy. Could this have anything to do with Old Joe Biden’s misrule? Of course.

To be sure, there are other factors at play as well. An Iraqi security official said Friday that “recent assessments … put the group’s reserves at between $25 million and $50 million.” That could be a conservative estimate: the Wall Street Journal reported in September 2020 that ISIS had “assets ranging into the hundreds of millions of dollars across the Middle East and Central Asia,” according to “officials and government records.”

The Iraqi official said that ISIS got its cash from “opportunistic extortion, looting and kidnap for ransom,” but those are not the only sources of the jihad terror group’s income. WSJ added that ISIS “still extorts local populations in areas it controls or has supporters; receives income from businesses it seized during its rule; and collects payments from human trafficking.” It also controls “a growing share of illicit tobacco markets in Pakistan and Afghanistan.” Nor is even that all: “donors in several Middle Eastern countries work on raising funds,” says the WSJ, in an understated reference to wealthy Muslims around the world who believe that ISIS is a worthy Islamic organization and keep it afloat financially with substantial donations.

On Friday, the group announced that it had chosen a new caliph, the brother of the former ISIS caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed in a U.S. raid in 2019. The new top dog is Juma Awad al-Badri, a.k.a. Abu al-Hassan al-Hashemi al-Quraishi, succeeding Abu Ibrahim al-Quraishi, who blew himself up to avoid being captured in a U.S. raid in Syria in February.

They all call themselves al-Quraishi because they claim to be members of the Quraish tribe, the Meccan tribe of Arabia to which Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, belonged. To be a Quraish is a prerequisite of being the caliph, or successor, that is, Muhammad’s successor as political, military, and spiritual leader of the Muslims, and that prerequisite is non-negotiable, leading people such as Juma Awad al-Badri to fabricate a lineage back to the Islamic prophet

Yet although they fancy themselves as seventh-century warriors, these guys are not remotely just fantasists. ISIS has been advancing all over of late. It is active in Mali, where either ISIS or al-Qaeda (both jihad groups are active in Mali) recently attacked an army base, murdering 27 soldiers and injuring 33 more. They have “seized vast swaths of the Malian countryside,” according to Reuters, and have expanded their operations into neighboring countries. In late February in Nigeria, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) slaughtered 25 people. In Mozambique, ISIS is such a formidable presence that South Africa, Rwanda, Botswana, Lesotho, Angola, and Zambia have sent troops to combat it there. None of those countries is anything close to being a military powerhouse, but it’s still noteworthy that forces from six countries have to come together to fight a threat that most people assumed had been decisively defeated several years ago and would fade into the background.

The group has designs not just in Africa, either. Homeland Security Today reported in late February that ISIS had posted a video online urging Muslims in the United States to join “ISIS North America.” FRONTPAGE MAG read more

THEY’RE BAAAAAACK!

Three years after their rising Islamic ‘caliphate’ was crushed in defeat under the Trump Administration, the Islamic State has carried out deadly attacks in Syria and Iraq, signifying ISIS’ resurgence on the world scene.

The Islamic State waged simultaneous attacks on a Syrian Jail and a military base in Iraq.. The first attack targeted Kurdish-controlled Gweiran Prison in Hassakeh, Syria on January 21. Militants attacked the jail holding nearly 5,000 prisoners, including a large number of ISIS fighters who were freed in the attack on the prison. Let the beheadings begin!

ISIS resurgence further destabilise West Asia with 40 Kurdish security officers killed in attacks

The revival of the Islamic State is knocking at West Asia’s doors as two attacks took place, one at a high profile prison in Syria and the other at a military base near Iraq. Now, a car bomb went off outside the prison, shortly after which gunmen clashed with security forces. This led to the killings of at least 40 Kurdish security forces and five civilians.

Turkey’s relationship with ISIS proves it is deserting its European allies

My question is why was Turkey allowed into NATO? Why the friendship between Turkey and the west? Turkey is a Moslem nation. Regardless of what is said Turkey’s allegiance, (as with all Moslem nations, all Moslems) is to Islam.

Turkey’s relationship with ISIS proves it is deserting its European allies

Any distance Erdoğan has placed between himself and ISIS is attributable to pressure from Russia, the U.S., and Europe, not to his rejection of the group’s Islamist ideology.

In view of Turkey’s increasingly divisive and destabilizing influence in the Middle East, the region’s biggest concern for the West could be President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s burgeoning Islamist tendencies. In order to understand the Turkish role in the threat of Islamic State (ISIS), born of the Muslim Brotherhood, it is necessary to rewind six years.

2014 was the year ISIS became a very real threat to the Middle East. Within one year, the group managed to take over a third of Iraq and half of Syria, with 200,000 fighters under its control. ISIS quickly became successful at producing and selling oil as an important source of income. It also managed to ensure a constant supply of weapons, ammunition, vehicles and advanced communication devices.

The ability of ISIS to become a functioning state so quickly is largely due to its relationship with Erdoğan.

ISIS has had strong connections to Turkey over the years, whether through its oil industry or through its willingness to shield wanted members of the Muslim Brotherhood. This “neighborly” relationship was essential to ISIS’s success, and it continues to be reflected in Turkish decision making. JNS read more

Mozambique: Islamic State establishes new capital, carries out beheadings, takes sex slaves

If this new Islamic State (ISIS) territory gains any significant international notice, expect a new round of articles confidently asserting that ISIS has nothing, nothing whatsoever, to do with Islam, and beheading and sex slavery are completely un-Islamic. We saw a spate of such articles when ISIS established its now-destroyed caliphate in Iraq and Syria. In reality, both beheading (47:4) and the sexual enslavement of Infidel women (4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30) are founded upon teachings of the Qur’an. But as always, the establishment media will direct its efforts toward denying and obfuscating that readily demonstrable fact.

“Inside ISIS’ new capital as terrorists carry out beheadings and take sex slaves,” by Tom Towers, Daily Star, October 3, 2020 (thanks to Henry):

ISIS -linked jihadis have amassed a fighting force that is wreaking havoc and slaughtering its enemies.

The terrorists have killed more than 1,500 people in northern Mozambique and displaced more than a quarter of a million since 2017….

Back in August, ISIS militants captured the port town of Mocimboa da Praia, in the province of Cabo Delgado, and told locals it would be their new capital.

The region is rich in oil – featuring Total and Exxon Mobile bases – and its deep forests offer terrorists smuggling routes for arms and ammunition.

Locals refer to the armed group as the Machababos or Al Shabaab, but the ISIS-affiliated group calls itself Al-Sunnah Wa Jama’ah….

The terrorists pledged allegiance to ISIS last year and have launched a series of attacks

Los Angeles County Sheriff compares BLM/Antifa rioters to the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group

Los Angeles County Sheriff compares BLM/Antifa rioters to the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Tuesday that protesters calling for the death of two deputies who are being treated after being ambushed by a gunman represent a “new low” for the nation and “something worthy of ISIS.”

President Trump called for “Death Penalty” for those who shot two LAPD officers, while rioters chanted outside hospital “We hope they fuckin’ die!”

National Review “It’s just a new low for the hatred that I don’t think anyone in this nation has ever seen before,” Villanueva said during an interview with Fox News.

On Saturday night, a gunman shot the two deputies, a 31-year-old mother and her 24-year-old partner, four or five times in their parked cruiser outside the MLK Transit Center in Compton, Calif. Surveillance video of the shooting shows the gunman walking up to the passenger side of the deputies’ car, lifting a pistol, firing at them, and then running away. Bare Naked Islam read more
