ISIS: Saudi-Qatari-Funded Wahhabi Terrorists Worldwide

by Ramtanu Maitra

The sudden emergence of another organized militant Islamist-terrorist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), aka the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or simply IS, along the Iraqi-Syria borders, was not really “sudden” at all. A series of West-organized military actions, particularly the Iraq invasion of 2003, invasion of Libya in 2011, and arming and facilitating the passage of Islamists and terrorists, in the garb of freedom fighters, to Syria to dismantle the Assad regime, has served to bring together thousands of hard-core Islamic terrorists, from as many as 50 countries, who have for years been funded and indoctrinated by the Saudis, Qataris, and Kuwaitis, with the “kill them all” Wahhabi-Salafi vision of Islam, to establish what ISIS calls the Islamic State.

That state currently encompasses a swath of land stretching from the outskirts of Baghdad in the east, to the outskirts of Aleppo in Syria, bordering Lebanon and Turkey, in the west. Estimates of the number of fighters that might be affiliated with ISIS vary from more than 10,000, to as many as 17,000.

While many policy errors have contributed to creating this horror, there is one center of evil with the intention of spreading such brutal sectarian warfare, which destroys civilization and nation-states alike. This center is in London, often dubbed “Londonistan,” for its role as a center for incubating international terrorists. As we review the history of the creation of ISIS below, keep in mind the reality that we are dealing here with a London imperial project being carried out through Saudi Arabia, other Gulf States, and sundry British tools.

Setting Up Sectarian War

Although this large group of Wahhabi-Salafi terrorists in Iraq and Syria, who are killing Shi’as, and grabbing large of tracts of land for setting up a Wahhabi-Salafi Caliphate, has been much better organized and trained over the decades, it is not altogether different from the London-organized, Saudi-funded, and Pakistan-trained mujahideen in the 1980s, who showed up in Afghanistan to drive out the invading Soviet military. While the objective of the mujahideen brought in by Western powers was to drive the Soviets out of Afghanistan, and then become terrorists-for-hire, ISIS is busy setting up a Caliphate in Southwest Asia.

It is perhaps because of this distinction that the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, told reporters on Aug. 24, on his way to Afghanistan, that he believes ISIS is more of a regional threat, and is not currently plotting attacks against the U.S. or Europe. He also pointed out that there is no indication, as of now, that ISIS militants are engaged in “active plotting against the homeland, so it’s different than that which we see in Yemen.” In Yemen, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has attempted attacks against Western countries.

There is no doubt that the threat that ISIS poses, as observed by General Dempsey, is a regional threat, and is primarily directed against Iran, Iran’s allies, and Shi’as in general. But it also poses a serious threat to all Arab monarchies and countries such as Lebanon.

The objective of ISIS became evident from its actions in Iraq and Syria. It is clear that the staunchest promoters of anti-Shi’a ideology, which is aimed at undermining Shiite Iran, are the Saudi monarchy, the Qatari monarchy under the al-Thanis, and the Kuwaiti monarchy under the al-Sabahs. These monarchies are exporters of the Salafi-Wahhabi version of Sunni Islam, which does not accept Shi’as as Muslims, and considers them to be heretics who should be annihilated in order to purify Islam.

Saudi Fears and Coverups

Nonetheless, the rise of the ISIS and its military prowess, seen in its securing a large tract of land not too-distant from the Saudi Arabian borders, has evoked an existential fear in the House of Saud. In addition, the presence of thousands of Western jihadi fighters who could raise hell upon their return to their home countries, has also made the Americans, the British, the French, and some other European governments—friends of the Saudi-Qatari-Kuwaiti axis—a bit uneasy. In order to assuage their Western friends’ fears, the Saudis have begun a propaganda campaign to convince others that they do not fund ISIS.

The West, with its vested interest in Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Gulf nations, has continued to defend Saudi Arabia; U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry went on record praising the Saudi Kingdom for donating $100 million to the UN Counter-Terrorism Centre. Riyadh is also spewing out the lie that the ISIS militants are not adherents to Wahhabism. In a statement to the Aug. 23 London-based Saudi news daily Asharq al-Awsat, a spokesperson for the Royal Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in London said:

“Saudi Arabia wants the defeat and destruction of ISIS and other terrorist networks. Terrorist networks are as abhorrent to the government and people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as they are to the governments and peoples of the rest of the world…. There have been suggestions that ISIS followers are members of some sort of Wahhabi absolutist sect. Indeed, certain UK media outlets often refer to Muslims within Saudi Arabia as Wahhabists. The unsubstantiated use of this invented connotation must end because it is untrue. Wahhabism is not a sect of Islam.”

“Muhammad [Ibn] Abd Al-Wahhab was a scholar and jurist of the 18th century who insisted on the adherence to Qur’anic values and the teachings of the word of God as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad,” the statement added. The Saudi spokesperson criticized Western media attempts to draw comparisons between Wahhabism and extremist ideology.

But some Western news media are not buying these denials by Riyadh and Washington about the Saudi-Qatari-Kuwaiti connections to ISIS. The British weekly The Spectator, on Aug. 21, alluded to the common ideology of the Saudi and ISIS Wahhabists: “Saudi Arabia is a close ally of Britain and a keen customer of our killing machines, and like most of the Arab states is hostile to lunatic elements like ISIS and Hamas. Yet they are part of the problem; like many Islamists, including those in Britain, the Saudis are happy to condemn ISIS in what they do but not their basic ideology, largely because it mirrors their own.”

The article pointed out that “the Saudi hostility to ISIS could even be described in Freudian terms as the narcissism of small differences. ISIS is dangerous to them because for those raised in the Saudi version of Islam, the Islamic State’s even more extreme interpretation is not a huge leap.”

Wahhabi ‘Peaceniks’ of Yesteryear and Today’s ISIS

In 1744, Muhammad ibn Saud and Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab swore a traditional Muslim oath, in which they promised to work together to establish a state run according to Islamic principles. Until that time, the al-Saud family had been accepted as conventional tribal leaders whose rule was based on longstanding, but vaguely defined, authority. Ibn Abd al-Wahhab labeled all those who disagreed with him heretics and apostates, which, in his eyes, justified the use of force in imposing both his beliefs and his political authority over neighboring tribes. This in turn led him to declare holy war (jihad) on other Muslims (neighboring Arab tribes), an act which would otherwise have been legally impossible under the rules of jihad.

In 1802, the Wahhabis captured Karbala in Iraq, and destroyed the tomb of the Shi’ite Imam Husayn. In 1803, the Wahhabis captured the holy city of Mecca. The Ottoman Turks became alarmed, and in 1811, dispatched Muhammad Ali, the Ottoman ruler of Egypt, to challenge the Wahhabis. He succeeded in re-imposing Ottoman sovereignty in 1813. Nearly a century later, in 1901, with Wahhabi help, Saudi emir Abd al-Aziz al-Saud recaptured Riyadh. Al-Saud’s sovereignty over the Arabian peninsula grew steadily until 1924, when his dominance became secure. At that point, the Wahhabis went on a rampage throughout the peninsula, smashing the tombs of Muslim saints and imams, including the tomb of the Prophet’s daughter Fatima. Saudi Arabia was officially constituted as a kingdom in 1932.[1]

In Newsweek July 8, Lucy Westcott wrote, “The Islamist militant group ISIS has been destroying Iraq’s Shiite mosques and religious shrines as it continues to put pressure on the country and further its extreme agenda. The AFP reported that four shrines that commemorated Sunni Arab or Sufi figures have been destroyed, while six Shiite mosques were demolished. The destruction seems to have been limited to Iraq’s northern Nineveh province, including militant-held Mosul. One local resident told Al-Arabiya that members of the group had also occupied the Chaldean cathedral and the Syrian Orthodox cathedral, both in Mosul, removing their crosses and replacing them with the black flag of the Islamic State.”

There is another hallmark that ties Wahhabism with ISIS like an umbilical cord. Human Rights Watch reported recently that Saudi Arabia has beheaded 19 people since the beginning of August. Some confessions may have been gained under torture, and one poor defendant was found guilty of sorcery. Beheading of Kafirs (in Arabic, a slur to describe non-believers) is also the high-profile act of both ISIS and al-Qaeda under Sheikh Osama bin Laden, another group that was a beneficiary of Saudi money and wide-ranging Gulf support.

ISIS beheaded the American journalist James Foley recently in Iraq; while another American journalist, Daniel Pearl, was beheaded in 2002 in Pakistan. In both cases, videos of the beheadings were widely circulated to rev up emotions among the Wahhabis.

The Financing of ISIS

In 2011, in Syria, when President Obama, Prime Minister David Cameron, and President François Hollande joined forces to remove Syria’s elected President Bashir al-Assad from power, and thus deal a body blow to the Russians and the Iranians, who acknowledge Assad’s legitimacy, not-so-militant groups within were bolstered by attaching them to well-trained Salafi-Wahhabi terrorists from a number of countries. While the Western countries were quite generous with arms, and worked with the neighboring countries to facilitate entry of arms into Syria, the bulk of the money came from the Salafi-Wahhabi bastions of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.

Despite denials issued from Riyadh and Doha to quiet gullible Westerners, the funding of various Sunni groups seeking to establish Salafism and Wahhabism in a number of countries has long been well-documented. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), for example, who is keen to see Assad, and the Russian influence over Syria, vanish altogether, praised the Saudis and Qataris for financial help lent to the Syrian “rebels,” in a discussion on CNN, in January 2014,

“Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends,” the Senator repeated at the Munich Security Conference in late January. McCain praised Prince Bandar bin Sultan, head of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services and a former ambassador to the United States, for supporting forces fighting Assad in Syria. McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had previously met with Bandar to encourage the Saudis to arm Syrian rebel forces.[2]

But McCain was a bit off the mark. At the time he was bloviating on CNN, the “rebel” power in Syria was already firmly in the hands of ISIS—now an enemy of the U.S. Indeed, in Syria, where the moderate Friends of Syria (those who, according to what the White House conveyed to the American people in 2011-13, were the recipient of arms thanks to American and other Western largesse), Jabhat al-Nusra (a faction of al-Qaeda), and ISIS worked together in the early stages of the West-orchestrated and Saudi-Qatari-Kuwaiti-funded anti-Assad militancy. These groups used to carry their flags together during militant operations against Damascus; but that changed, and the Salafi-Wahhabis, having seized arms and ammunition from their earlier collaborators, became the powerhouse.

Now, it is evident that ISIS has enough killing power to loot and extort funds to sustain itself, and even grow.

How Saudi Money Created Foreign Wahhabi Terrorists

In 2010, Britain’s news daily The Guardian citing Wikileaks, Dec. 5, 2010, quoted U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying that Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest source of funds for Islamist militant groups such as the Afghan Taliban and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT)—but the Saudi government is reluctant to stem the flow of money. Both the Afghan Taliban and the LeT espouse the Wahhabi version of orthodox Islam. “More needs to be done,” wrote The Guaridan, “since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups, says a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state. Her memo urged US diplomats to redouble their efforts to stop Gulf money reaching extremists in Pakistan and Afghanistan.”

“Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide,” she said.

Three other Arab countries are listed as sources of militant money: Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. The cables highlight an often ignored factor in the Pakistani and Afghan conflicts: that the violence is partly bankrolled by rich, conservative donors across the Arabian Sea whose governments do little to stop them. The problem is particularly acute in Saudi Arabia, where militants soliciting funds slip into the country disguised as holy pilgrims, set up front companies to launder funds, and receive money from government-sanctioned charities.

In other words, a small fraction of the Saudi money may have gone directly to ISIS, but it is definitely Saudi money that armed and trained terrorists in Russia’s Chechnya, Dagestan, North Ossetia, Ingushetia; in Pakistan; along the Afghanistan-Pakistan borders; in the Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan belt in Central Asia and also in Europe, particularly in Britain’s Londonistan. These militants have come in droves to the Syrian theater with their expertise to boost ISIS’s killing power.

In short, the Saudis have shipped money, sermons, and volunteers to Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Russia’s North Caucasus, just as they’re doing now in Syria. In Chechnya, Saudis such as Ibn al-Khattab, Abu al-Walid, and Muhannad (all noms de guerre) indoctrinated, armed, and trained militants who mired the Chechens in an endless war that killed some 160,000 people, while forcing Chechen women into Saudi-style isolation, and throwing Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, and North Ossetia into turmoil. Many of these jihadis are now on full display in the Syria-Iraq theater on behalf of ISIS.

In Afghanistan, Saudi money, and the Pakistani military, backed by Saudi money and support, have created a relatively small, but hardcore, Wahhabi capability in a number of provinces. Although these Afghan Taliban were not notably visible in either Syria or Iraq, they have helped facilitate movement of Saudi-funded Wahhabi terrorists coming down from the north to participate in the Caliphate-formation war in Iraq and Syria.

In Pakistan, myriad Saudi-financed Wahhabi and anti-Shi’a terrorists are growing in strength, and trying establish inroads into the Pakistani military; while in Afghanistan, the Saudi- and opium-funded Taliban, spewing Wahhabi venom, are trying to seize power again. In addition, Saudi money is also being distributed to build bases in several nations for recruitment and training of jihadis for future operations. It is evident that such a widespread operation cannot be carried out in stealth for years; it is therefore fair to assume that such base-building is done in collaboration with the targeted nation’s intelligence community. These recruits remain available for use by the mother-nation. This became visible when the Libyan Islamic Fighters Group (LIFG) was used to dismantle the Libyan state and kill Colonel Qaddafi. Pakistan and Britain are two important centers where the Saudis operate hand-in-glove with those nations’ intelligence apparatus.

Britain in the Spotlight

Take, for instance, the recent beheading of the American photo-journalist James Foley by a British jihadi working with ISIS. Whether the British jihadi actually carried out the execution, or not, it was evident that ISIS was keen to project its strength, boasting that it has muscle in developed countries, such as Britain. And, indeed, it has.

The identified British jihadi was a product of the East London Mosque, situated at the heart of Londonistan, in the borough of Tower Hamlets in East London. Londonistan is a world unto itself, where British intelligence recruits and trains Saudi-funded radical and criminal Sunni Muslims to kill and assassinate, and then deploys them wherever needed to serve the “Empire’s interest.”

Tower Hamlets is where the Shi’a-hating radical Saudi cleric and head Imam of Mecca, Sheikh Adel al-Kalbani (who last year was refused entry into Britain) went to meet local council leaders for a “private meeting” in 2008. He was the guest of the Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman, a fanatic Islamist who heads the Saudi-funded Jamaat-e-Islami in Britain. According to a Bangladeshi journalist, Tower Hamlets has been converted into the “Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets” under the mayor. That statement was right on the mark.

On Aug. 9, The Guardian reported that some 20 Asian youths had gathered around the Tower Hamlets gates, where a black flag, resembling that of ISIS, was hoisted. The flag was subsequently taken down by a Catholic nun.

Tower Hamlets is one of many centers where the Saudis breed their Wahhabi recruits. In 2013, when Sheikh al-Kalbani was denied entry to the U.K., followers of radical hate preacher Anjem Choudary, spokesman for the Islamist group Islam4UK, led a demonstration in London in May against Shi’a Muslims, three years after Islam4UK was officially proscribed, on Jan. 14 2010, under the U.K.’s counter-terrorism laws. In other words, the proscription of Islam4UK is a paper job to cover up that group’s activities.

It is also evident that the Saudi funding for Wahhabi-indoctrinated jihadi fighters has not gone to waste. Among the ISIS foreign fighters, the Londonistan-created jihadists are the largest and most dominant group. The Telegraph, in an Aug. 21 article, “More British Muslims fight in Syria than in U.K. Armed Forces,” cited Khalid Mahmood, the Member of Parliament from Birmingham, another recruiting and training center of Londonistan, saying that “1,500 British Muslims have gone to wage jihad since 2011, as opposed to the 400-500 the government estimates and the 650 serving in the British armed forces.”

“The Saudi Arabian princes, the people that we’re doing business with every day, because of the petro-dollar arrangement we have with them, they’re still funding ISIS. Their money is going directly to ISIS as we speak,” Mr. Papantonio said. “So, (ISIS has) this huge armament stash that (the U.S.) gave them, they have this propaganda machine that we gave them, and they have money coming from the Saudi Arabians.”

The “back-story” of U.S. involvement in the very creation of ISIS is undeniable, Mr. Papantonio said. “In the 1980s—(Pres. Ronald) Reagan and (Defense Secretary Donald) Rumsfeld—the U.S. funded anti-Soviet rebels and provided huge weapons supply to (Osama) bin Laden and Al Qaeda,” when they were fighting America’s “Cold War” enemy the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.

“Al Qaeda, then after that, if you remember the history, merged with ISIS, and then together, the next step was ISIS and Al Qaeda, pushed to overthrow (Col. Muammar) Gadhafi in Libya and to reassert this strong “Islamic” regime. And for them doing that, the U.S. provided more money, more arms, more air strikes and more moral support for ISIS.

President Ronald Reagan, with his Middle East envoy, Donald Rumsfeld standng by, right, defends the use of U.S. troops in Grenada during a Nov. 3,1983 press briefi ng at the White House.

“Then the Al Qaeda-ISIS group, recovered huge amounts of U.S. weapons that we left behind in Iraq. I mean tons and tons of weapons. It’s disgusting when you start seeing what they drove away with and carried away,” Mr. Papantonio continued.

But Mr. Obama’s international problems are even deeper than just ISIS. He is facing a “triple-headed monster” in international affairs, according to Dr. Gerald Horne, who holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American studies at the University of Houston. “The way it’s been described is the so-called Islamic State, on the Syria-Iraqi border, the Ukraine-Russia-crisis that’s exploding as we speak, and the alleged threat from China, where the United States has been buzzing the coast of China in recent days, leading to confrontations between the air forces of both nations, with—according to press reports—the planes coming within 30 feet of each other, which is quite dangerous,”

Queen of the FAKE Bin Laden videos Rita Katz/SITE is the “source” for the fake ISIS “beheading” videos…as usual

 Nobody verifies her claims. Rita Katz/SITE says “Al Qaeda” “ISIS” did it, it hits the “news”:

You know these (fake) beheading videos? I immediately noticed they were brought to you by the Israel-Zionist linked SITE group overseen by Israeli-Zionist liar Rita Katz. There is a post about SITE/Rita Katz on May 7, 2012, entitled:

Queen of the FAKE Bin Laden videos Rita Katz/SITE is the “source” for a supposed Al Qaeda hostage situation…as usual

All I had to do was replace the words “Al Qaeda hostage situation” with “fake ISIS beheading videos”. That’s how predictable this is getting. And I probably replaced “fake Bin Laden videos” with “Al Qaeda hostage situation” at some earlier time.

In fact, I used the PICTURE and the COMMENT from the other post, and striked out “Al Qaeda” and replaced it with “ISIS”!!!

Why was I able to just replace a few words in my titles? Because guess who, like clockwork, brings us the ISIS beheading videos?

Take a look:

Video reportedly shows ISIL beheading journalist Steven Sotloff (The monitoring service SITE Intelligence Group reported Tuesday that ISIL had released a video in which Sotloff is killed in a manner similar to the beheading of James Foley).

Notice the sentence: “The monitoring service SITE Intelligence Group reported Tuesday that ISIL had released a video in which Sotloff is killed in a manner similar to the beheading of James Foley”

Yes! Once again, SITE/Rita Katz, the queen of fake “terrorist” videos, brings us the latest fake terrorist videos!

I know the mainstream media is far-gone corrupt, but I can’t believe how stupid and out-of-touch they are to actually put in the article that SITE is the group that provided us with the “beheading” video. Yes, the same SITE group that has been totally discredited for years with proven fake Bin Laden videos and other assorted “terrorism” videos and audios.

UN-FRIGGIN’-BELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!

But the REAL terrorists are the U.S. mainstream media/radio talk shows/radio “news” briefs. They are the ones pounding us 24×7 with fake beheading videos from a known Israeli/Zionist shill “monitoring group” SITE. And you can throw in SITE as a terrorist, too. The mainstream media and SITE are terrorizing us by the very definition of terrorism. The SITE video isn’t authenticated and there is no body and the videos look laughably fake, but yet the mainstream media is POUNDING US 24×7 WITH IT! That is TERRORISM!!!

Israel just murdered 2,000 innocent Palestinians and 500 children and our mainstream media is pounding a fake beheading video down our throats 24×7 and totally ignoring Israel’s REAL murdering.

And what did Israel do after murdering all those children and civilians? They stole more of their land:

Huge new Israeli settlement in West Bank condemned by US and UK. British foreign secretary urges Israel to reverse decision to seize 990 acres of Palestinian land near Gvaot to create new city

And what is our mainstream media pounding us with 24×7 instead? Not to bomb Israel for war crimes, but bomb more Arabs due to ONE guy in a FAKE beheading video!

We need to arrest the REAL terrorists: the mainstream media…and SITE.

 

ISIS has allegedly beheaded Steven Joel Sotloff, the American journalist who appeared in the terrorist group’s propaganda video of James Foley’s beheading two weeks ago. In the first video, the executioners threatened Sotloff would meet the same fate if the U.S. military did not comply with the terrorists’ demands.

The U.S. didn’t. ISIS appears to have followed through.

The video was first obtained by SITE Intelligence Group (Search for International Terrorist Entities), also known as SITE Intel Group, a relatively under-the-radar yet apparently very powerful research body that monitors jihadist movements. The Bethesda, Maryland, organization has published a shortened version of the beheading video and published a transcript on its news site, which has been largely inaccessible since news of the beheading broke, likely due to an uptick in Web traffic.

A description of SITE Intelligence Group on its Facebook page says its blog, INSITE, focuses on “all dimensions of extremism in the 21st century:  jihadism, white supremacy movements, hacker threats and everything in between. … All articles posted to the blog are intended to elevate the discussion regarding extremist threats — transcending the conversational buzz and shining light on the greater factors at stake.” Among its products for sale is SITE Monitoring Service, which provides its subscribers — government and commercial entities — “immediate and timely translations of the most important jihadist material published.”

SITE made the decision to publish the video of Sotloff’s beheading when numerous mainstream news outlets in possession of it declined to do so, likely influenced by the overwhelming negative public reaction to the sharing of video and still images of Foley’s beheading, which quickly and inescapably proliferated on social media before YouTube and Twitter removed them.  The authenticity of the video obtained by SITE Intel Group has yet to be explicitly confirmed, but the White House released a statement Tuesday afternoon expressing “deepest condolences” for the “brutal murder of an innocent American journalist.”

SITE Intelligence Group is an incarnation of the SITE Institute, founded in 2002 by former Investigative Project colleagues Rita Katz and Josh Devon. Katz remains the executive director of the SITE Intelligence Group. Her bio says she is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, having been born in Iraq and educated in Tel Aviv. She has worked as a government consultant on terrorist operations and is the author of the 2003 book, “Terrorist Hunter: The Extraordinary Story of a Woman Who Went Undercover To Infiltrate the Radical Islamic Groups Operating in North America.” She is the subject of a 2006 New Yorker profile, which described a visit to SITE’s offices (the location of which, at the time, Katz demanded the magazine leave unnamed):

“Each day, Katz finds about a half-dozen items on the Arabic message boards that are worth distributing. Her researchers, who monitor English-language jihadist websites, often find a few more. Some are propaganda: videos taking responsibility for attacks, statements of intents to attack, announcements of allegiances or splits. … SITE tries to have the items translated and sent to subscribers within an hour and a half of their first appearance online.”

SITE Intel’s speedy distribution of items likely explains why numerous mediaoutlets appeared to have obtained evidence of the beheading video, or the video itself, about the same time. SITE Intelligence Group did not immediately respond to an inquiry for more information.

The SITE Institute was credited in 2007 with obtaining and releasing the first video of Osama bin Laden in three years, the Washington Post reported.  The Post said SITE beat Al Qaeda’s own release of that particular video and shared it with government agencies and news media. The story said Katz “declined to comment on the methods used to obtain the footage” but told the Post she was first made aware of it via a jihadist message board.

How People keep buying this Bullshit?  and of course they’re ready for war!!!Create a problem, and give the solutions!!

ISIS – CIA and the Muslim-Non-Muslim concerns

By: Shenali D Waduge

The general public had never heard of Al Qaeda or Osama bin Laden until 9/11. Thereafter, both names are honorably mentioned by every Western Government and blamed for every terrorist activity and has enabled a string of laws and regulations that keep all citizens under radar and surveillance – the excuse given is everything is being done in our best interest and of course national security. However, this has not stopped scores of other terror groups to emerge and their names quickly entered to the hall of shame terror lists of countries. The latest is another new comer ISIS and it is certainly not the ancient Egyptian goddess. If ISIS is an offshoot of Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda was a creation of the US according to Hillary Clinton, then there has to be far more to the objectives of the ISIS than we are made known. While loosely understanding the CIA connections to the Islamic radical groups it baffles us as to why there are a steady flow of Muslims ever ready to be part of these indoctrinated groups that end up killing fellow Muslims and why Muslims themselves without desiring to live in cosmopolitan societies within a global village wish to be part of the Islamic expanded Sharia law meant only for Muslims? The two ends do not tie up and is part reason for why empathy towards the Muslims are lacking. While the world does empathize with the Muslims who are victims to global geopolitics the world is not too happy about the Islamic motive of creating Islamic states which has contributed to the changes in behavior and dress of Muslims in non-Muslim majority countries.

Whistleblower Edward Snowden claims that ISIS head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a CIA asset. He also claims that the National Security Agency along with UK and Israel created the ISIS. This piece of news connects well with the claim by the founder of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and former Al Qaeda commander (Nabil Naeem) that all current Al Qaeda affiliates including ISIS work for the CIA in a globally created initiative called ‘hornets nest’ that draws Islamic radicals to fight in the name of Islam. That explains how ISIS is not only well armed but well trained and able to expand throughout Iraq and Syria. The modus operandi of hornet’s nest is to create a perception that Israel is under threat by Islamic extremists (who are of course trained by them) The irony is that there are plenty of Muslims ready to sign up and be guinea pigs in an exercise that always end up in Muslims killing Muslims and taking these killings beyond borders. For every border passed with Muslim extremist assistance it is a territory gained for the West for the extremists are kept busy by orders to kill anyone or anything in their way while the real blue collared terrorists loot nations and take over strategic assets. This does provide a good explanation why ISIS has been able to control the oil rich area of Mosul in Iraq without firing a single shot! Who ordered Iraqi soldiers to give up and lay down arms without a fight! People who are included into West’s shamelist of terrorists are often found having key contacts with Washington. General Ibrahim al-Douri, the mastermind of the recent ISIS military success in Iraq, on the watch list of America since 2003 and former Baath Party head and Saddam Hussein successor is just one good example we can offer of America’s hypocrisy.

The Muslim mercenaries travelling after training and arms support by the West to every nook and corner that the West and its corporate power blocs wish them to should make countries uneasy about becoming eventual victims themselves. Jordon has shown signs of panic wondering if ISIS would turn upon them. The possibilities cannot be ruled out. The Georgian rebels transported to Syria was done with the help of an NGO called Javari and facilitated by Georgia’s counter intelligence department with the approval of the US embassy. We are well aware that all these rebel movements are part of a bigger objective to create a Kurdish state from Iraq.

If ISIS is CIA linked why would US/Israel desire an Islamic Caliphate? Interestingly every area that the ISIS is declaring as Islamic happens to be where oil fields or strategic assets prevail. Also interesting is how every enemy of the US and West is also the enemy of ISIS. We need to recall how on Ramazan day scores of Shiites were brutally murdered by the ISIS and not a single Muslim organization arose in protest even those in secular nations. At this point, the Muslims are to blame. Muslims have no other alternative than to save Islam’s reputation and cultural heritage. Muslims must act to protect their interests from the harm of those who claim to speak in the name of their religion and those who seek to monopolize it. But they do not do so and complain when non-Muslims bring up issues with the justified fear that the jihadi elements in partnership with the West will descend on their nations. These have nothing to do with Islam as a faith or Muslims as a minority. When non-Muslims are making their fears known it is primarily because they do not wish to have radical/political Islam in partnership with the West take over their nations. Muslims should not be naïve and childish not to understand this very important aspect.

No non-Muslim nation would desire to have ISIS followers calling for the heads of their captives citing Allah. This video exemplifies how extracts from Islam’s history is taken to justify ISIS action and when one reads through the attached link one will find how the obligation to Allah was fulfilled in one and a half days of carnage. The recent killings of Christians and Shiites goes to show what dangerous terrain we are on.http://www.westernjournalism.com/disturbing-video-shows-brutally-isis-treats-conquered-iraqis/

It must also show the Christians that the very countries that are West and we presume to be pro-Christian are actually handing arms to Islamic groups and watching them murder Christians and forcing the remaining Christians out of areas that they were living in historically. Is this with a greater plan we have to wonder. The makers of Al Qaeda (US Pentagon) eventually uses the threats Al Qaeda pose as a means to place US and Western presence across nations claiming security and then bringing laws that place citizens under undue surveillance and giving them the rights to arrest citizens even on hunches. A good look at the US Patriot Act and the National Security Act would reveal how far Americans have fallen for the lies weaved to them by their own Government. ISIS has been good reason for the US to decide to continue troop presence in Iraq when the US Government promised to return their soldiers home.

The entire debate leaving aside a historic confrontation between Islam and Christianity wherein some believe an enactment of what is prophesied to happen is been prepared and leads to the clash of civilization theory, needs to also take into account some realities. Invariably innocent Muslims and Christians will become bait for this Biblical clash. Dharmic religions wish to have no part/role to play in this exercise of unnecessary and unwanted death therefore it is now opportune a time for the Dharmic faiths to protect their own territory and keep their people safe.

Fact 1 is that all of the radical Islamic groups that have emerged ever since the US decided to fund the mujahideen against the Russians have been all financially backed, trained and supported by US and Western interest groups.

Fact 2 is that given our acceptance of Fact 1 it lays to rest and questions how Muslims can line up to be part of a geopolitical campaign that eventually uses ‘ISLAM” and parts of its religious texts to declare wars on non-believers? There has been no shortage of people to join any of the Islamic groups operating across the world (whose leaders are well connected to the CIA/Pentagon and other foreign intelligence) Whether they are brainwashed or indoctrinated it is irrelevant because there are enough of Muslims ever ready to join their ranks. Any time the West wants to create mischief all they need to do is to form an Islamic group, use texts of the Koran and then a steady flow of Muslims are ready to join and now social media is being used effectively by them too.

Fact 3 is that there are hardly any Muslims organizations at the forefront in any country in particular the secular countries where democracy allows them the freedom to make their voices heard who come out and say they are against Al Qaeda, its associated groups or ISIS. They may be quick to respond by claiming they do not support it but they do not come out and demand that they stop their crimes whether it is upon fellow Muslims or non-Muslims. However, they are ever ready to come out and claim ‘victim’ status against non-Muslims. What needs to be categorically said is that though it is illegal for a Muslim to kill another Muslim all of todays conflicts are between Muslims and against Muslims by Muslims (it is a totally different matter whether they are armed, supported and trained by the West). It is because Muslims are ready to take on their own that the West has mastered the art of how to draw them into proxy wars for their benefit.

Non-Muslim majority countries and Governments do not seem to realize that in permitting even aspects of Sharia to prevail such Governments are agreeing to divide people as Muslims and non-Muslims. Governments talking about equality befor the law cannot and should not agree to such a division and that is why there is such opposition to Sharia in non-Muslim majority nations where the law of the land and the culture of the country has to be according to the heritage of the country. What eventually happens is in agreeing to Sharia the will of the Muslims (who are a minority) dominate the rights of all others.

More importantly the leaders of secular nations need to realize that there are agents of ISIS/Al Qaeda lobbies under various bogus names and camouflaged by secular objectives but their modus operandi is quite different and when young women from Western Christendom have been mesmerized by the ideology (which cannot be Islam) and cross borders to fight for the ISIS, we need to worry and we have every right to worry. ISIS has not promised or delivered anything for non-Muslims to be happy about!

It is better to start worrying and taking counter-measures than to watch the enemy arrive at one’s doorstep and take us by surprise.

This is what non-Muslim citizens are pleading of the political leaders who appear to be very comfortable enjoying the perks and privileges that silence them not realizing that the enemy is closing in on not only them but the entire nation as well. The countries that today face Islamic extremism never expected their countries to face such an impasse. They were unprepared. Today they are battling to keep the identity of their country alive. Therefore those that claim that non-Muslims are getting unnecessarily worried need to first reason out on what grounds they can say so when mushrooming Islamic groups are springing up calling for not only jihads but an Islamic Caliphate that now includes Asia as well. This is also well in line with America’s ‘Look East’ policy therefore the people are intelligent enough to realize that the emergence of radical Islam is nothing but political Islam via Pentagon and the calls by US missions to non-Muslims to be tolerant of Islam and Muslim minorities is just a hoax and a cover up.

These are realities that the Muslims and in particular those who call themselves moderate needs to realize that non-Muslims have every right to fear and many reasons to fear. It is no one figment of imagination or made up stories that are making non-Muslims fear. There are events happening and behaviors in Muslims that non-Muslims are connecting with the radical Islam springing into shape. These are not innocent changes but have a very well programmed modus operandi though Muslims themselves may not be aware of it. However, when these things are brought to light for debate it is wrong of Muslims to pretend to be victims without sharing the concerns themselves.

On the one hand there is Islam itself that clearly demarcates Muslims from non-Muslims and establishes ground rules for how non-Muslims should behave and how Muslims should treat non-Muslims. These do not get enforced in non-Muslim majority nations but the call to attempt to make these nations into majority Muslim nations through various means is part and parcel of Islamic expansionism. Every demand and right made by Muslims is always connected to Sharia demands and Sharia law extended is an entire social system encompassing criminal and civil code. Non-Muslims question why a parallel law should be allowed to prevail if Muslims who live in secular nations wish to live in peaceful coexistence.

Next is the fact that Islamic groups are working hand in glove with the West and that clearly establishes far more dangers than we can fathom. Yet, Muslim organizations have not come out to appeal to Muslims not to join, Muslims have not come out to oppose these groups or made sure that their children are not sent to mosques, madrassas or muftis who are agents to recruit youth for these extremist groups and this silence has compelled non-Muslims to come out and make their concerns public especially when secular politicians are bribed into silence not realizing that their selfish silence will again compromise the lives of our soldiers. We do not wish to have another blood bath wherein our soldiers are compromised for no reason and because politicians have been lazy to take action.

These are serious matters for both non-Muslims and Muslims to ponder over.

8 Stories of Civilians Killed by Nobel Peace Prize’s Drones in Yemen

A drone was hovering overhead all morning. There were one or two of them. One of the missiles hit the car. The car was totally burned. Four other cars were also struck. When we stopped, we heard the drone fire. Blood was everywhere, and the people killed and injured were scattered everywhere,” said Abdullah Muhammad al-Taysi in an interview with Democracy Now.

What al-Taysi describes here is not a gruesome scene from a war zone — it is a wedding that took place in the Yemeni city of Rad’a, a happy celebration that turned bloody, thanks to a strike carried out by a drone operated by the U.S. military. The attack resulted in 12 deaths, including al-Taysi’s son, Ali Abdullah Muhammad al-Taysi.

He wasn’t the first loved one to be killed by a drone strike, and he won’t be the last. We don’t know the exact number of civilians killed by missiles fired by drones, but up to 132 civilians may have been killed between 2002 and 2014.

“It is a lot like playing a video game. But playing the video game for four years on the same level,” said one former operator of Predator drones.

Former drone operator Heather Linebaugh described in the Guardian how hard it was to distinguish between civilians and an intended target on the videos provided by drones: “We always wonder if we killed the right people, if we endangered the wrong people, if we destroyed an innocent civilian’s life all because of a bad image or angle.”

That lack of humanity is part of the problem: Drone operators tucked away somewhere in Nevada or New Mexico are shielded from the casualties of their work, the human beings killed, the damage and destruction caused when a hellfire missile explodes into a car packed full of people.

That’s perhaps why they’re the weapon of choice for the Obama administration: Afghanistan, Iraq and, on a lesser scale, Libya, have left Americans wary of more foreign adventures. Instead of dealing with body bags returning home, drones offer a different way of attacking the enemy without ever having to put U.S. soldiers into harm’s way.

The argument is that the civilians are collateral damage, and it’s horrible that they had to die, but that’s war. But there is no war between the U.S. and Yemen. The war is with al-Qaida, a non-state entity — and waging a war against a group leaves more room for Yemeni civilians to get caught in the crossfire.

The following stories of eight people killed by drone strikes are important to tell because they show that behind every sanitized report of drone casualty figures, there are real people with goals, loves and dreams whose lives have been extinguished.

1. The child: Abdulaziz al-Huraydan

Abdulaziz was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The 10-year-old was killed in a strike in June 2013 in al-Jawf. Already in the 7th grade, he was bright for his age. The school certificate his father proudly held up showed that he had excelled in his Quran and Arabic language exams that year. He passed his English class, too.

Abdulaziz’s brother, Saleh, was the target of the strike that killed them both. He had joined AQAP (al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula), and was disowned by his father. Saleh had been away from his family for months, but on the day of the strike had decided to come and see his mother. As he passed through town in his pickup truck, Abdulaziz spotted him and asked for a ride home.

Abdulaziz’s father, Hassan, was upset at the idea that his youngest son was a justified target.

“If people say he is from al-Qaida, tell them to bring him to me,” he said. “He was a 10-year-old child. He was innocent.”

2. The father: Aref al-Shafi’i

Aref, 30, and married with seven children, was out celebrating a wedding last December when he was killed. Wedding convoys are a tradition in Yemen called a zafa, and around 11 vehicles were taking the bride and groom back to the groom’s village, Jishm. Four missiles fired from a drone hovering above the convoy killed Aref, along with 11 others.

Aref’s father, Ahmed, a 70-year-old shepherd, said Aref provided for his extended family by going into Saudi Arabia and selling goods, and then returning after a month or two. Now his family has to provide for his wife and children, the youngest of whom was 15 days old when his father was killed.

Zabanallah, Aref’s elder brother, was adamant that his brother was innocent.

“Why do they only kill the innocent? The weak? They orphaned the children.”

When Aref’s body arrived in Jishm with the other dead, the whole village erupted in mourning.

“They were wailing from one side of the valley to the other when they saw what happened to him,” Ahmed said. “If you’d have heard it, it would have haunted you.”

3. The brother: Salim Al-Taysi

Salim was in the same wedding convoy as his fellow villager Aref when the drone missiles struck.

A father of six, he lived in a small stone building that he’d recently built. The villagers were semi-nomadic and regularly moved, seeking new pastures for their livestock to graze on.

Ahmed, Salim’s brother, is now taking care of Salim’s wife and children, in addition to providing for his own wife and four children. He is worried about the future, and sees no help coming from his own government.

“The state has done nothing,” he told PolicyMic. “Nothing. There’s nothing here.”

Salim’s son, also named Ahmed, could barely speak when I met him. When asked about what had happened, the child responded bluntly:

“My dad was hit by the plane. It would be better if my dad was still here.”

4. The teen killed by his own government: Abdulrahman al-Awlaki

Via: ACLU
Abdulrahman, an American citizen, was a 16-year-old whose Facebook profile shows a moppy-haired, smiling teenager messing about with friends. His father, however, was AQAP cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Abdulrahman was killed by a U.S. drone in October 2011.

Abdulrahman was born in Denver, and the fact of the matter is that he was a child killed by his own government. According to his father, Nasser, he watched The Simpsons and listened to Snoop Dogg. The overwhelming evidence that he was no militant was not enough for former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, however, who said that Abdulrahman should’ve “had a more responsible father.”

Abdulrahman disappeared from his family home in Sana’a in September 2011 to go and look for his father, whom he had not seen for two years. He traveled to his family’s ancestral homeland, Shabwa, only to learn that his father had been killed by a drone on Sept. 30. He called his family to say he was coming home. He didn’t; two weeks after Anwar al-Awlaki’s death, Abdulrahman was killed at an open-air restaurant.

5. The anti-al-Qaida Imam: Salim Ahmed Jaber

Via: Reprieve
Salim was the very type of person that those fighting al-Qaida should hope to protect. The imam of a mosque, he was an opponent of al-Qaida, regularly preaching against them, and in the process of setting up an organization that would oppose al-Qaida ideology. He was a schoolteacher and held a master’s degree.

On Aug. 28, 2012, Salim travelled to his ancestral village of Khashamir to celebrate the wedding of his nephew.

On Aug. 24, Salim had been invited to give the Friday sermon at the village mosque. In it he challenged al-Qaida to present Islamic evidence for their actions. On Aug. 29, al-Qaida members came looking for Salim, and he agreed to debate them. Missiles were fired at Salim and the al-Qaida men, and they were all killed immediately.

Faisal Jaber, Salim’s brother-in-law, has many unanswered questions. Why was the car attacked in a populated area? Why were the vehicle’s occupants not apprehended while passing through the army checkpoints?

“Who will compensate the victims, and the orphans, and the widows?” Faisal said. “Can the Americans live night and day in fear and terror? Do they consider us human beings with rights?”

6. The policeman: Waleed Abdullah Jaber

Via: Reprieve
Waleed was Salim Jaber’s nephew, and he was killed in the same drone strike in August 2012.

Waleed was a traffic policeman in Khashamir and 27 years old when he was killed. He had one son and was known for his bravery in the village. He was the youngest in his family.

Waleed had encouraged the reticent Salim to speak to the al-Qaida members who had turned up in the village. He told his uncle that there was no point in challenging al-Qaida and then being scared when they arrived. Taking his pistol with him, he joined his uncle outside the mosque where they were both killed. A pistol is no match for missiles.

7. The deputy governor: Jabir al-Shabwani

Via: Al-Arabiya
Jabir al-Shabwani was the deputy governor of Marib governorate and an important tribal leader there.

In May 2010 he went to meet al-Qaida members in an effort to mediate with them, and to get them to hand themselves in to the Yemeni authorities.

Instead, in a botched attack, a U.S. drone killed him in a place called Wadi Abida.

Since the killing, for which Yemen’s supreme security committee quickly apologized, the Shabwani tribe have been attacking government infrastructure in revenge for Jabir’s death. Marib is home to significant oil and gas reserves, and the power station that serves most of Yemen’s highland cities.

The tribe’s demand is that the Yemeni government stop cooperating with the American drone attacks. According to Yemeni political analyst Abdul Ghani al-Iryani, that drone strike has cost the Yemeni economy more than $1 billion.

8. The schoolteacher: Ali al-Qawli

Ali al-Qawli was a 34-year-old father of three and a teacher working at an elementary school in Juhana, just outside Yemen’s capital, Sana’a.

He was a cheerful, optimistic man and had been a supporter of Yemen’s popular revolution in 2011, joining thousands of others in Sanaa’s Change Square, where he called for freedom and democracy. He wanted a better future for himself and his country, and dedicated himself to his teaching. In 13 years of teaching, he hadn’t missed a day of work.

On the morning of Jan. 23, 2013, his students waited patiently for their teacher to arrive. “Mr. Ali will not be coming in today,” the principal eventually told them.

He had been killed by a drone strike the previous evening, after unwittingly picking up apparent al-Qaida members in the car his cousin used as a part-time taxi.

DC Navy Shipyard Shooting one step closer to Gun Control

The timing of it all is telling, as the Obama regime sees its own public demise before its hideous face. Timing. It tells all.

It figures the Zionists would pick a naval facility for this false flag, since the Navy is the portion of the American military poised to strike Syria.

As the Obama administration struggles to convince lawmakers of the case for intervention in Syria, there were signs today that American involvement in the civil war there, if it happens, might be greater in scale than was first anticipated.
