ISIS Burns Alive Four Prisoners

Still from video.

The Islamic State has released a chilling new video showing the execution of four Shiite prisoners by burning in Iraq.

The four men are accused of being members of the Shiite Popular Resistance Committees. They are forced to confess for the camera before the execution.

They are suspended from a frame with ropes and a fire lit underneath. Islamic State music accompanies the executions.

The killings are believed to be revenge attacks for a video circulated last week of a Shiite militia roasting a fighter accused of allegiance to ISIS over an open pit.

The video is entitled Punish Them with the Same Harm They Have Caused You, a verse from the Quran alluding to vengeance.

As the video was released news broke that ISIS blew up the Temple of Bel in Palmyra. It was considered to be the most important temple at the site and was the second to be destroyed, following the destruction of the Temple of Baalshamin last week.

Russia jets in Syria skies

Alex Fishman
Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.

According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base.

In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.

Past reports have stated that the Russians were in talks to sell the Syrians a package of MiG-29 fighter jets, and Yak-130 trainer jets (which can also serve as attack aircraft.) The current makeup of the expeditionary force is still unknown, but there is no doubt that Russian pilots flying combat missions in Syrian skies will definitely change the existing dynamics in the Middle East.

The Russians do not harbor offensive intentions towards Israel or other sovereign states in the area, and their main stated goal is battling ISIS and preserving Assad’s rule. However, their presence will represent a challenge to the Israeli Air Force’s freedom of operation in the skies above the Middle East.

Western diplomatic sources recently reported that a series of negotiations had been held between the Russians and the Iranians, mainly focusing on ISIS and the threat it poses to the Assad regime. The infamous Iranian Quds Force commander Major General Qasem Soleimani recently visited Moscow in the framework of these talks. As a result the Russians and the Iranians reached a strategic decision: Make any effort necessary to preserve Assad’s seat of power, so that Syria may act as a barrier, and prevent the spread of ISIS and Islamist backed militias into the former Soviet Islamic republics.

The Russians are not the only ones coordinating their Middle East policy with the Iranians; The US has also jumped aboard that train. American government officials have been holding intensive consultations with representatives of the Iranian regime concerning a stronger joint effort against ISIS in Iraq. It seems that the US government currently views Iran as a central and necessary force in the campaign against ISIS within Iraq.

The Iranian-American cooperation is focused on two focal points: The first being Anbar province, where the Iraqis have thus far failed to expel ISIS; and the second Mosul, where the Iraqis have yet to come up with a feasible plan to recapture the city.

Western diplomatic sources have emphasized that the Obama administration is fully aware of the Russian intent to intervene directly in Syria, but has yet to issue any reaction. The absence of a vocal opposition from the Obama administration is compounded by its cessation of calls for the dissolution of Assad’s murderous regime.

This and more: The Iranians and the Russians- with the US well aware- have begun the struggle to reequip the Syrian army, which has been left in tatters by the civil war. They intend not only to train Assad’s army, but to also equip it. During the entire duration of the civil war, the Russians have consistently sent a weapons supply ship to the Russian held port of Tartus in Syria on a weekly basis. The ships would bring missiles, replacement parts, and different types of ammunition for the Syrian army.

Arab media outlets have recently published reports that Syria and Russia were looking for an additional port on the Syrian coast, which will serve the Russians in their mission to hasten the pace of the Syrian rearmament.

In the meantime, Assad’s army is in full scale retreat in the strategic province of Idlib. Mere days ago, a force from the Jaesh Al Fatah (A coalition or rebel groups including Jabhat al-Nusra) advanced on the Abu Duhur military airfield in southwestern Syria’s Iblib province, which borders on Latika. Alwaite and Christian residents of the area have fled to the last remaining Alawite Bantustans along the country’s coastline.

Even Turkey, which has so far avoided any action which would strengthen Assad, has had to come to terms with the Russian-Iranian move and the resulting American silence, leading it to launch its own bombing campaign against ISIS in Syria.

 

During a recent trip to Qatar, Erdogan reached understandings with the Qataris and the Saudis regarding a program to arm Muslim Brotherhood backed rebels who are fighting against ISIS, de-facto fighting both Assad and ISIS.

Obama refuses to bomb ISIS training camps turning out thousands of fighters a month

IMG_0386
 Ever wonder why the US military – the most powerful and technologically advance force in the world – is losing a war to a bunch of fanatical fighters?

Could be that we’re not serious enough about “destroying and degrading” Islamic State forces.

Case in point: There are dozens of ISIS training camps spread throughout Syria and Iraq training thousands of fighters a month – and we haven’t once targeted a camp in our air campaign.

The fear is hitting civilians – what the military calls “responsible targeting.” But Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon has examined the targets hit by our forces and comes away unimpressed.

The military campaign, known as Operation Inherent Resolve, appears to be floundering despite a yearlong campaign of airstrikes and military training programs aimed to bolstering Iraqi military forces.

A review of Central Command reports on airstrikes since last year reveals that no attacks were carried out against training camps.

Targets instead included Islamic State vehicles, buildings, tactical units, arms caches, fighting positions, snipers, excavators, mortar and machine gun positions, bunkers, and bomb factories.

The risk-averse nature of the airstrike campaign was highlighted last month by Brig. Gen. Thomas Weidley, chief of staff for what the military calls Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

“The coalition continues to use air power responsibly,” Weidley said July 1. “Highly precise deliveries, detailed weaponeering, in-depth target development, collateral damage mitigation, and maximized effects on Daesh, are characteristics of coalition airstrike operation in Iraq and Syria.”

Daesh is another name for the Islamic State.

“The coalition targeting process minimizes collateral damage and maximizes precise effects on Daesh,” Weidley said earlier. “Air crews are making smart decisions and applying tactical patience every day.”

Other coalition spokesman have indicated that targeting has been limited to reaction strikes against operational groups of IS fighters. “When Daesh terrorists expose themselves and their equipment, we will strike them,” Col. Wayne Marotto said May 27.

The military website Long War Journal published a map showing 52 IS training camps and noted that some may no longer be operating because of the U.S.-led bombing campaign.

According the map, among the locations in Iraq and Syria where IS is operating training camps are Mosul, Raqqah, Nenewa, Kobane, Aleppo, Fallujah, and Baiji.

The group MEMRI obtained a video of an IS training camp in Nenewa Province, Iraq, dated Oct. 1, 2014.

The video shows a desert outpost with tan tents and around 100 fighters who take part in hand-to-hand combat exercises, weapons training, and religious indoctrination.

We are fighting with one hand tied behind our backs because of the fear of collateral damage. Fair enough. But consider that nearby in Yemen, the Saudis are wontonly killing civilians in their air strikes, and the Syrian government and Hezb’allah are massacring civilians with poison gas and “barrel bombs.”

The Obama administration is running out the clock on the war against Islamic State, hoping they can keep ISIS from a sweeping victory until after they are safely out of office. No messy civilian deaths will be allowed to tarnish the Lightworker’s legacy – even if that means continued suffering and death at the hands of terrorists because we refuse to destroy their training camps.

State Department declares Parchin military base not nuke site before IAEA even signs off on it

obama nukes

Responding to reports of construction at the Parchin military base, State Department spokesman John Kirby said that building an addition to one of the buildings was allowed because the site is a  “conventional military site, not a nuclear site.”

This is another flip flop by the Obama administration who had been insisting for years that Parchin may have conducted tests as recently as 2010 related to a nuclear explosive. And of course, giving Parchin a clean bill of health before the IAEA even has a chance to examine the samples that will be collected by Iranian sciientsts is ludicrous.

Jerusalem Post:

For over a decade, the IAEA has sought answers to a set list of questions regarding the possible military dimensions of Iran’s past nuclear work. The agency agreed on a “road-map” with Iran last month toward that end and hopes to conclude its inquiry by the end of the year.

Theoretically, the inquiry is intended to conclude whether the site is conventional or nuclear in nature.

If the investigation concludes to the satisfaction of the IAEA, Iran will begin receiving its sanctions relief, and the broader Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action— the formal name for the Iran nuclear deal— will go into effect.

There is a Kabuki dance being performed by the international community as they go through the motions of deliberating and signing off on the agreement. Even the IAEA is now in the tank for the deal, eschewing any semblance of independent verification in favor of hurrying the process of certifying Iran to be compliant with the terms of the agreement.

This is clear to Democratic lawmakers who now have no reason at all to go against their president and vote the deal down. They realize that even if by some miracle Congress would refuse to OK the agreement, it would move forward anyway as if they didn’t even exist. Why risk your political career if it’s a done deal anyway?

Republicans should call out this charade and boycott the vote. It’s about as meaningful as voting to name a new post office in Ohio after John Boehner. Better to refuse to become part of this stage managed soap opera than be seen participating in it.

Democrats to Spend 9/11 Partying w/Muslim Brotherhood front groups CAIR, ISNA

Daniel Greenfield

This is like spending Victory in Europe Day dressing up in Nazi uniforms or Pearl Harbor Day playing kamikaze. But it’s business as usual for the Democratic Party, which does treason like it’s going out of style.

First up is a very special 9/11 party with ISNA over in Lansing as the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing throws its 9th Annual Mayor’s Ramadan Unity Dinner hosted by two Dems, Mayor Virg Bernero and Nathan Triplett, as Creeping Sharia reports.

Come for the 9/11 ambiance, stay for the party at an Islamic center affiliated with ISNA. As a bonus, you can meet its imam, Sohail Chaudhry, who became infamous for his run-in with Asra Nomani. She claimed that his former mosque had extremist elements.

ISNA was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the same organization that spawned Al Qaeda. It has extensive ties to terrorism. It’s the last place any patriotic American should be on 9/11.

Meanwhile over in Washington, the anniversary of the murder of thousands of Americans by Muslim terrorists means it’s time for some quality CAIR time.

A meeting aimed in part at helping Tri-City elected officials become better acquainted with the local Muslim community was planned Friday in West Richland.

The session also was meant to help Tri-City area Muslims become more engaged in government. Similar meetings will be held in the Tri-Cities in the future, with the next one planned for September.

When in September exactly? Funny you should ask.

The next meeting is Sept. 11 in Kennewick

And by “Muslim community”, they mean another Muslim Brotherhood terror-linked group.

They’re part of a initiative by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a civil liberties and advocacy organization.

Here’s the kind of civil liberties and advocacy CAIR is best known for…

CAIR was co-founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, all of whom had close ties to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by senior Hamas operative Mousa Abu Marzook and functioned as Hamas’ public relations and recruitment arm in the United States.

On February 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named CAIR Advisory Board member and New York imam Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in Islamic Group leader Omar Abdel Rahman’s foiled plot to blow up numerous New York City monuments.

CAIR itself was named an unindicted coconspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial.

In October 1998, CAIR demanded the removal of a Los Angeles billboard describing Osama bin Laden as “the sworn enemy.” According to CAIR, this depiction was “offensive to Muslims.”

In 1998, CAIR denied bin Laden’s responsibility for the two al Qaeda bombings of American embassies in Africa. According to Ibrahim Hooper, the bombings resulted from “misunderstandings of both sides.”

This is the sort of folks that some politicians seem to think are appropriate company for 9/11.

Christian man killed by 3 Muslim immigrants in Maine

A judge on Monday unsealed the court documents of a grisly murder of a Christian man, allegedly at the hands of three Muslim immigrants in Portland, Maine.

In those documents, which had been sealed since the three men were charged Aug. 11, police said they found the brutally beaten body of Freddy Akoa lying on the living-room floor in his apartment. He was the victim of a savage attack that took place over several hours.

According to the autopsy report, he had cuts and bruises all over his body, with the fatal blows coming to his head.

Akoa, who had listed himself as a health-care professional on his LinkedIn page, had 22 rib fractures and a lacerated liver.

Akoa’s blood-splattered Bible was found lying next to his head.

The apartment was in disarray, with empty beer cans and trash strewn about, as though a party had come to an abrupt end at the onset of a physical altercation.

Akoa, 49, apparently knew his assailants, but police have not commented on the nature of their relationship.

He had been beaten and kicked in the head, and bashed in the head with a piece of furniture in an assault that continued relentlessly for hours, police said in the arrest affidavit.

But they were silent on what touched off the vicious attack.

Stop the Islamization of America! Get Pam Geller’s highly acclaimed guide to the resistance, and it’s autographed!

Could they have been drinking and then gotten into an argument over religion? Police wouldn’t say if the Bible was found open or closed, but its presence so close to the body leaves one to wonder.

A local detective refused to fill in any of the many blank holes in the story of Freddy Akoa’s death.

“I can’t go into any of the details,” Detective Rich Vogel of the Portland Police Department told WND. “I’m just not at liberty to give out any information about a case that’s subject to an ongoing investigation. Eventually the whole story will come out. It always does.”

Mohamed Mohamud, one of three suspects charged in the killing of Freddy Akoa in Portland, Maine.

Of the three Muslim assailants, at least two have common Somali names – Mohamud Mohamed, 36, and Osman Sheikh, 31. The third suspect is Abil Teshome, 23.

There were several other people in the apartment when the altercation broke out, Vogel told WND. But how many of them understood what was being said is in question, since the arrest affidavit states that the words being exchanged between Akoa and his assailants were not in English.Vogel also said he did not know the immigration status of the suspects.Osman Sheikh Said, 31, a Somali refugee who was resettled in Maine, is one of three suspects charged with the murder of 49-year-old Freddy Akoa.

All three of the suspects lived in the Portland area.

No mention of immigration status

Portland has been on the receiving end of a steady infusion of Somali refugees over the past 15 years, and Mohamed and Sheikh appear to have been part of that community, although no mention of their national origin has even been mentioned in the local media.

Apparently it’s a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy with regard to Somali refugees in Maine, said refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran.

The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, has sent 1,379 Somali refugees to Maine since 2002, with 1,010 of them going to Portland, according to the State Department’s refugee database. Records prior to 2002 are not kept online, but the U.N. has been sending Somali refugees to the United States since the early 1990s with the full support of the U.S. Congress, despite the fact that hundreds of them have turned out to be jihadists or criminals.

The U.N. has sent more than 110,000 Somalis to U.S. cities and towns as “refugees” since the early 1990s. The largest Somali community in the U.S. lives in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region of Minnesota, which also happens to be the nation’s biggest hotbed of jihadist recruitment.

In April, U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger admitted “we have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota” as he announced the arrests of six Somali men from Minneapolis who had repeatedly tried to board flights to Turkey where they planned to cross into Syria and join ISIS. Dozens of other Somalis have been arrested on terrorism-related charges, yet the U.S. State Department continues to import Somali refugees into the U.S. at a rate of 600 to 800 per month. Hundreds more are now coming from the jihadist capital of the world, Syria, even as persecuted Christians from that country are ignored by the Obama administration.

Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act on July 29 in the House, which would halt all refugee resettlements until Congress can get a handle on the program’s financial impact and the risks to national security. Babin is still looking for his first co-sponsor of the legislation.

Friendly party ends in tragedy

The three Portland assailants entered Akoa’s apartment about 4:40 p.m. on Aug. 9 and left about 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, according to surveillance video on the apartment building.

These details were made public for the first time Monday when a judge at the Cumberland County Courthouse unsealed an affidavit filed by Portland police Detective Christopher Giesecke to obtain an arrest warrant for three men accused in the killing, the Portland Press Herald reported.

The case documents had been sealed at a prosecutor’s request for one week after three accused killers appeared in court, each on a charge of murder by depraved indifference.

The arrest warrant affidavit explains how police first learned of Akoa’s death on Aug. 11, and how clues left in the apartment and video surveillance camera recordings quickly led detectives to interview a witness and take the three suspects into custody, the Press Herald reported.

Akoa’s mother, Jeannie Mendomo, became concerned after she couldn’t reach her son by phone and no one answered the door at his apartment. She called the building’s management company to check on him. Two of the company’s representatives used a key to go in the apartment after noon on Aug. 11 and found him dead on the floor with a swollen and bloodied face, Giesecke wrote in the affidavit.

Beneath Akoa’s body police found a document with Mohamed’s name on it.

Detectives found a purse in the apartment that lead them to a woman, Jennifer Wilson, who said she was there the night Akoa was beaten, Giesecke stated in court documents.

That afternoon, they found Wilson at the Preble Street Resource Center in Portland, and before they could ask her a single question, she asked them, “How is Freddy?” Giesecke wrote.

Wilson told police that three other men were present in the apartment and got into a fight with Akoa.

Wilson told police she and Akoa and the three men had all walked together to Akoa’s apartment on Aug. 9 after buying beer at a nearby store, according to the Press Herald report. She told them they had been drinking for only about 10 minutes before an argument broke out in a language that Wilson did not understand, according to the arrest affidavit.

Akoa was also an immigrant from Africa but not from a Muslim-dominated country. Comments left on his and his sister’s Facebook page after the attack indicate they were a Christian family.

Police later found Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh in Deering Oaks park on the morning of Aug. 13 and arrested Teshome on a charge of criminal trespassing.

Teshome allegedly told Detective Richard Vogel in an interview at the Portland police station after his arrest that he had become angry at Akoa’s apartment and that he, Mohamed and Sheikh all took turns assaulting him. Again, no reason for the anger was given by Giesecke in the documents.

“Teshome said he lost control of himself and started hitting Akoa several times in the head. Teshome admitted to punching and kicking Akoa multiple times and knocking him to the ground. Teshome also stated that he also struck Akoa with his hands and feet while Akoa was lying on the ground,” Giesecke wrote.

Police say Teshome confessed that he used a board from a makeshift coffee table to beat Akoa over the head and to strike his foot.

“(Teshome) said that he and Sheikh left Akoa’s apartment around the same time and that he believed Akoa was alive when he left,” Giesecke wrote.

Video surveillance footage from the apartment building shows Wilson and Mohamed leaving the building at 5:38 a.m. on Aug. 10, but Teshome and Sheikh cannot be seen in the footage, the affidavit states.

Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh are being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail.
