ISIS is putting out much better quality videos than al-Qaeda ever did. This has Hollywood written all over it.
h/t Susan K
The annual publication is called al-Naba, which is Arabic for ‘The News.’ ISIS claims to have carried out 10,000 operations in Iraq last year alone, which included assassinations, bombings and the freeing of Sunni prisoners. So much for the Democrats’ description of them as unorganized ragtag insurgents.
UK Daily Mail With its carefully collated facts and figures, it reads like a set of company accounts. But closer inspection of the 400-page document reveals it is a chilling breakdown of the murderous activities of the fanatics battling for control of Iraq.
For this is the ‘annual report’ of the Al Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), designed to demonstrate its power and attract funds from potential donors. Like any corporate document, it uses computer-generated graphics, details a management strategy, lists performance and targets.
But the jihadists’ statistics chart in numerical and geographical detail its lethal operations – bombings, assassinations, suicide missions and cities taken over.
In the latest edition of ‘al-Naba’ – the News – covering the 12 months up to last November, ISIS claims to have carried out nearly 10,000 operations in Iraq. That includes 1,000 assassinations, planting more than 4,000 roadside bombs and freeing hundreds of prisoners. ISIS even records the number of people who renounced Islam then repented – and contains one sickening category headed ‘apostates run over’.
The report, written in Arabic with a photograph of an ISIS gunman on its cover, has been analysed by the US think-tank, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), which has corroborated much of the information. John Lawrence, of the Washington-based institute said: ‘These numbers are not just purely propaganda figures.’
ISIS’s aim appears to be to demonstrate its record to potential donors, and ISW says the annual report, the second published in as many years, destroys the myth that the insurgents are a rag-tag band of Islamist militants. The ISW analysis portrays an organisation ‘functioning as a military rather than a terrorist network’ with a clear political strategy aimed to eventually set up a Sunni sectarian state run under harsh Sharia laws.
Jessica Lewis, director of research at the institute, told the Financial Times: ‘The reports provide measures of performance in the way you roll out details for donors.
‘They affirm that the organisation operates like an army and that it has state-building ambitions.’ The ISW study concludes: ‘This is a military enemy that requires a considered strategy, military as well as involving anti-ISIS Sunni populations, to defeat it, or it will become a permanent fixture in the Middle East.’
The latest annual report does not include the ISIS major gains in recent weeks, where they have swept through northern Iraq, carrying out summary executions. They are now battling government forces close to Baghdad.
This year has also been successful in financial terms for the terror group. Its fighters looted hundreds of millions of pounds from banks in Mosul, Iraq’s second city which was over-run by ISIS last week. According to the Council on Foreign Relations, ISIS was already extorting taxes from Mosul businesses before its takeover – to the tune of £4million a month.
In its 2013 document, ISIS says it took over eight cities, compared to one the previous year. The ISW warns that the number of attacks reported by ISIS may be exaggerated but month by month, area by area, the document reveals soaring levels of violence. In 2013, ISIS claims to have executed 1,083 people – almost double the 585 in 2012. Mortar attacks jumped from 359 in 2012 to 607 last year and the number of houses burned or bombed rose from 648 to 1,015.
ISIS massively increased the use of suicide bombers – either wearing bomb vests or driving bomb-laden vehicles – to terrorise Iraqis, with a six-fold increase in the number of attacks to 238. Baghdad bore the brunt of suicide bombers, with an increase from seven to 81 murderous attacks in the capital.
Targeted killings jumped from 16 to 1,047 and are evidence of a disciplined shift in tactics and techniques by ISIS to wrest control of Iraq, says the ISW.
Barack Obama to ISIS Jihadist: “After all the weapons, training, and funding I’ve given you? Ingrate.”
60 people killed and wounded by two car bomb explosions targeted at Shabak village, east of Mosul. Terror group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq & Syria), who is also fighting in Syria, is battling the Iraqi Army in its efforts to turn Iraq into a sharia-controlled state.
The suicide bombers were driving two car bombs noting that they detonated the two cars this morning, inside Muwafaqiya village of majority of Shabk component of Bartella county , which led to kill 25 civilians and wounding 35 others.

Al-Qaeda in France author says, “after they’ve been to Syria, they are hardened jihadists, full of hatred for the West and a savage determination to attack symbolic interests like the Jewish Museum in Brussels.”
The revelations came during depositions of three senior officials of the group after Muslims of the Americas (MOA) unsuccessfully sued two of their American critics who produced a book and video about their nefarious activities in the U.S.
Clarion Project A senior official of the Muslims of the Americas/Jamaat ul-Fuqra(MOA), a terror-linked group, said during a deposition that it has a “community” outside Anchorage, Alaska. Officials also confirmed the existence of three communes in New York, California and Michigan that have yet to be publicly pinpointed.
The comments came during depositions of three senior MOA officials after the group sued two critics, Martin Mawyer and Patti Pierucci, for $30 million for their book about MOA titled Twilight in America. The judge dismissed the lawsuit last week. Astonishingly, MOA Deputy Director Hussein Adams, the son of terrorist Barry Adams, admitted he had no information to show that the defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their claims.
The MOA officials repeatedly denied being a terrorist organization, but would not provide basic details about the group. Adams was especially secretive, claiming that the group had virtually no records and that he didn’t even know the names of those on Islamberg’s town council or who was paying the bills.
MOA says it has 22 “Islamic villages” around the country, including the one named “Mahmoudberg” in Sweeny, Texas that was identified by the Clarion Project.
Other pinpointed communes include Islamberg in Hancock, NY; Holy Islamville in York County, South Carolina; Islamville in Dover, Tennessee; Hasanville in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, Canada; Madinah Village near Commerce, Georgia; Aliville in Odum, Georgia; Ahmadabad West in Red House, Virginia and one with an unknown name in Meherrin, Virginia.
Deputy Director Hussein Adams said that MOA has a “community” near Anchorage, Alaska. This is the first time that a MOA enclave has been reported in the state.
He also spoke of “Mariaville” located “just down the street” of Islamberg, New York. There is documentation of a village in Deposit, New York. Adams mentioned another site outside Los Angeles, substantiating reports of a village at Oak Hill, California. Another MOA official, Muhammed Hasib Abdul-Haqq, confirmed the existence of a site in Coldwater, Michigan.
There are likely more to be found. During his deposition, Adams claimed that only three villages (Islamberg, Mariaville and Holy Islamville) are “officially” part of his group. Another nine that he mentioned were “unofficial.” When confronted with how MOA says on its DVDs that it has 22 villages, he replied, “Well, maybe there were other locations included.”
The officials maintained that the group never engages in jihad training and downplayed the significance of two videos showing that the MOA network in the U.S. is used for guerilla training. The first shows Gilani saying that Muslims interested in such training should contact his offices in the U.S. The second tape shows women training inside Islamberg.
Adams said that he was not aware of any training like what’s seen in the Clarion tape since he arrived in Islamberg from Canada in 2000. He said there are no weapons storages in Islamberg, but “if there is, you’re referring to individuals’ personal firearms.” The interviewer then asked, “So there may be [weapons], but they would be individuals’ personal firearms?” He replied, “Correct.”
Abdul-Haqq said he had seen parts of the Clarion tape but had not seen “any actual training like that.” “I know that they were doing things. They were going out there and marching and carrying on with some wooden sticks. Yeah, I know about that,” he said.
The third official to be deposed, Khadijah Smith, said she saw the footage released by Clarion and was asked whether she saw training like that taking place. She responded, “Self—we have self-defense classes, yes.” The interviewer then commented that it looked more like military-type training. She answered: “That’s in reference—that’s basically personal opinion, but I know that I’ve actually taken self-defense classes, as well as all the other ladies did.”
Smith compared the instruction to the type of self-defense classes that many women take. However, she then admitted she “briefly” got firearms instruction at Islamberg, but “I don’t know a whole lot about guns. I know how to shoot a rifle, not even a handgun.”
The level of advancement of MOA training is not the point. The point is that MOA is a secretive organization that, in the words of declassified FBI report from 2007, “possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.” and “extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government.”
In a documentary titled Grand Deception, former FBI agent and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan Garrett explains, “We’re not talking about a gun. We’re talking about the man holding the gun. How do you build him?”
Getting the gun is the easy part. Producing the extremist that uses the gun is the hard part. That’s what MOA and other Islamist indoctrinators are doing.
“We must eliminate the cross…and the bearer of the cross is America,” says top al-Qaeda leader in the Arabian peninsula where around 100 al-Qaeda fighters converged to plan their next major attacks.
Obviously, they didn’t get the memo from Barack Hussein Obama who said al-Qaeda is no longer the threat it used to be.
Hopefully, he will become the youngest dead member of Hezbollah, sometime soon.
Two Muslim jihadists claiming responsibility for recent terrorist bombings in Volgograd, threaten to carry out more deadly attacks that will create chaos at the Sochi Olympics next month.
A Boko Haram leader in northeastern Nigeria says the bloody insurgency will continue because Allah says they must decapitate and mutilate, but eating the body parts is a ‘no no.’ PHEW!
CTV News/AP In a video newly released Saturday, Abubakar Shekau claims responsibility for the Dec. 20 attack on a tank battalion barracks and says his men would have eaten their enemies, but Allah forbids cannibalism. Witnesses said insurgents put soldiers to flight and set the complex ablaze before they were driven off by a jetfighter.
Shekau warns Christians not to go to churches in this holy month, though Christmas passed in Nigeria with none of the feared terrorist attacks. Five churches were bombed Christmas Day 2011 and dozens of people died.
Jihad on Christians. Jihad on Shias. Rape Jihad on women and children. Jihad on nuns. Alcohol Jihad, and now, Tobacco Jihad….apparently all with the sharia seal of approval from the Obama Regime.
It is the ‘inner struggle’ of Western leaders who keep trying to convince us that violent jihad committed against the West has nothing to do with Islam. George W. Bush said it. British PM David Cameron can’t stop saying it. And, of course, B. Hussein Obama is barely able to say it with a straight face whenever he says it.
British Prime Minister, David Cameron, said re: Nairobi Mall massacre
I am sickened by the attack on the #Westgate shopping centre killing 3 British nationals. It’s been done in the name of terror,not religion.
“These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion – they don’t. They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don’t represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world.”
The UK Foreign Office has warned that ransom payments made to kidnappers are directly fueling terrorism, and that the problem is getting worse.
The G8 countries agreed, at a summit in June, not to pay ransoms to kidnappers, but in practice the agreement does not appear to be holding. The French government reportedly paid 12 million pounds to free hostages held by Al Qaeda in Niger in October.
