YEMEN: “Heads, legs and arms of dead people were scattered all over the floor of the mosque, blood is running like a river” after multiple suicide bombings

Yemen-map-jpgIslamic State (ISIS) terrorists are claiming credit for multiple suicide bombings that killed more than 137 and injured hundreds more in two mosques during midday prayers Friday in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, as the nation continued its collapse into chaos, terror and death amid fighting between Islam’s two major sects.

Wasn’t it  just a few months ago when Obama lauded the success of Yemen in fighting terrorism? Oops.


FOX News  Witnesses said as many as four suicide bombers blew themselves up in the mosques, used by the Shia Muslim Houthi group, which has seized control of the government. The attacks, which also left hundreds injured, were preceded by an assault on a palace where the ousted president is living, according to reports. Yemen has seen escalating violence in recent months between the majority Sunni Muslims, who include Al Qaeda affiliates, and the Shia, who are backed by Iran.

Worshippers were attending noon prayers at the Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques in the capital when the attacks occurred, according to a report on the rebel-owned Al-Masirah TV channel. One witness at the al-Hashoosh mosque, located in Sanaa’s northern district, said that he was thrown some six feet away by the blast.

Reuters cited medical sources in reporting the death toll, which was revised upward several times. The rebel-owned Al-Masirah TV channel said the casualty figures had reached 137 dead and 345 injured and reported that hospitals were urging citizens to donate blood. It also reported that a fifth suicide bomb attack on another mosque was foiled in the northern city of Saada — a Houthi stronghold.

Al-Ansi added that many of those who didn’t die in the explosion were seriously injured by shattered glass falling from the mosque’s windows. He recalled running for the door along with other survivors and hearing one man screaming, “come back, save the injured!”

ISIS claimed credit for the attack in a tweet on an account associated with the terrorist group. If it indeed carried out the operation, it would mark the terrorist group’s first major attack in Yemen.


The northern-based rebels, known as the Houthis, seized control of Sanaa last September and in January put President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and the entire government, including Prime Minister Khaled Bahah, under house arrest. The Houthis later declared they have taken over the country.

The bombings came a day after deadly clashes in the southern city of Aden, between forces loyal to President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and the Houthi supporters of his predecessor, Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Warplanes later targeted the presidential palace in Aden, where Hadi has been holed up since fleeing Sanaa last month. Hadi, who aides said was evacuated to a “safe place” after the air raid, called the Aden attack part of a “failed military coup against constitutional legitimacy.”

Saleh was ousted in favor of Hadi in 2011 after mass protests, part of the so-called Arab Spring, but has remained a power-broker in the country. He is currently allied with the Houthis, against whom he fought wars when he was president. The Houthis now control at least nine of Yemen’s 21 provinces.


The chaos in Yemen is just the latest blow to the Arab Spring, a movement that began in Tunisia in 2010 and swept much of the Muslim world, promising initially to bring democracy to nations long under the boot of Islamist dictatorships.

Although the movement was cheered by the Obama administration, it has proven a failure, and violence has even gripped Tunisia, where two gunmen killed 23 people at a museum Wednesday in an attack for which ISIS claimed credit.

UNCENSORED! Pictures censored by the media show ISIS prisoners being tortured and beheaded in revenge attacks by Iraqi Special Forces

BeheadMAINIraqi forces take revenge with beheadings, mutilations and brutal executions by throwing people from buildings. Media-censored pictures from the Instagram account under the name of Iraqi_lion18 (now private), show severed heads and mutilated bodies reportedly by U.S.-trained Iraqi Special Forces advancing against jihadi strongholds.

BNI has acquired many of these photos uncensored.


UK Daily Mail  The horrific cache of images, uncovered by ABC News, emerged after Shi’ite militia leaders fighting with Iraqi troops said the current offensive on Saddam Hussein’s hometown would be a chance to avenge their deaths.


Other accounts show a man with his hands bound being thrown out of a tower and men believed to be Iraqi Special Operations Forces from the ‘Golden Brigades’ surrounding an alleged ISIS suspect who has been pulled by a rope.


U.S.officials confirmed yesterday that Washington was withholding funding from some Iraqi units ‘on the basis of credible information in the past’ of atrocities. After being shown the images, Iraqi Army spokesperson, General Saad Maan, said an investigation would be launched, adding: ‘We don’t have anything to hide.’



















The Kurdish Peshmerga have also been getting revenge on ISIS:








Latest Islamic State (ISIS) video features a child executing an Israeli Arab, accused of spying for Israel

I guess the notorious ‘Jihadi John’ has been replaced by ‘Jihadi Jean,’ a French ISIS member, who reads off the list of charges before a young boy comes over and shoots the man point blank in the head.

ISIS have got a kid to execute the 'Israeli spy'

AFP  (h/t Maria J)  The Islamic State released a video Tuesday purporting to show a young boy executing an Israeli Arab who it claimed infiltrated the group in Syria to spy for the Jewish state. In the video, a youth identifying himself as Mohammed Said Ismail Musallam recounts how he was recruited by Israeli intelligence.


Dressed in the familiar orange jumpsuit, 19-year-old Musallam is shown kneeling in front of the boy, who appears to be no more than 12 years old, and a man standing at his side. The man, speaking in French, issues threats against Jews in France, before the boy walks around in front of the hostage and then shoots him in the forehead using a pistol.

The boy, who shouts “Allahu Akbar” then shoots the man four more times as he lies on the ground.

In February, Musallam’s father denied in comments to AFP the ISIS claim that his son was an Israeli agent. “My son is innocent; ISIS accused him of working for Mossad because he tried to run away,” Said Musallam said, claiming that his son had travelled to Syria to join the jihadists.

Following release of the video Tuesday, Musallam said he did “not know anything”. “He is absolutely not religious,” Musallam said earlier, adding that perhaps his son had been recruited through the Internet. Musallam said his son, an Israeli citizen, abandoned his national service in the fire department to join ISIS.

In the video below, Mohammed Said Ismail Musallam, explains how he was, in fact, recruited and trained by the Israelis to be a spy, after which he was sent to Syria to gather information about ISIS and on any Palestinians there. He says his family  not only approved of his career choice, but encouraged him because of the high rate of pay he would receive.




Bret Baier of FOX News in an exclusive interview with the Egyptian President who is fighting the Islamic terrorist threat without the support of America

39250de68b0e6a9_16x9_788x442vi-viFondly dubbed ‘The Lion of Egypt’ by the Egyptian people, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi (right) sits down with Bret Baier to discuss the refusal of Barack Hussein Obama to supply Egypt with badly needed arms and equipment – demonstrating that America is not a reliable partner in the war against Islamic State (ISIS) and other terrorist groups’ aggression in Egypt and the Middle East.

FOX News  The interview covers a range of issues, including his views of American leadership in the region. Asked by Baier what his views of U.S. leadership are, el-Sisi paused and said — “difficult questions.” 

Egypt has taken on a bigger role in the fight against ISIS after the group’s militants last month beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. El-Sisi’s military has launched strikes against ISIS in Libya, while other Arab nations fight as part of the U.S.-led coalition striking targets in Iraq and Syria. 


Presenting Islamic State (ISIS) Street Theater: Hanging corpses

Eight dead bodies hang from a metal frame in Iraq’s Kirkuk province in what is Islamic State’s latest public display of barbarity.


UK Daily Mail (h/t Susan K)  The gruesome images which emerged on social media show the men’s limp bodies suspended from their feet off a tall structure in the town of Hawija.

The notorious black flag used by Islamist groups like ISIS is displayed above them as horrified onlookers inspect the scene. Some of the deceased men appear to be wearing military fatigues but it is not known if they were Iraqi soldiers.


An ISIS fighter believed to be Abu Al-Rahman poses triumphantly in one of the pictures – giving the one-fingered salute in front of a bloodied victim’s corpse. The same tyrant has been been pictured before alongside severed heads and masked ISIS fighters.

A shocking video released in February showed orange-clad captives being paraded in cages in the same city of Hawija. Frenzied crowds taunted the kidnapped men during the merciless procession which echoed the terrible death suffered by captured Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh.


It was seen as revenge against the Kurdish forces who dragged the bodies of ISIS fighters through the streets of northern-Iraq earlier that month.  Previous reports suggest he is an Iraqi national from the town of Almere and the heads once belonged to members of the Syrian army whom the militants captured and beheaded.

The extremist group has established a firm foothold in what was once an oil-rich Kurdish stronghold of Kirkuk.



WAS IT SOMETHING HE SAID? Iranian-backed militias execute 11-year-old Iraqi boy in Diyala province of Iraq

A horrific leaked video shows an 11-year-old boy in handcuffs who was beaten up by a group of Iranian-backed Iraqi fighters, then executed in cold blood with showers of bullets to the head.


Shoebat  What Barack Hussein Obama did when he pulled U.S. troops out of Iraq was to replace them with militias, a plethora of new and old pro-Iranian Shiite militias that are dominating the battlefields in Iraq and Syria which raises concerns about the growing Iranian influence. These are Iran-backed groups who are providing most of the “boots on the ground” that are pushing back ISIS forces from key areas near Baghdad, including Diyala province.

The overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s Ba’athist government resulted in the emergence of a Shia dominated government in Baghdad replacing it with an Iraqi Shiite government friendly to Tehran. This eliminated what had been an existential threat to the Islamic Republic of Iran and had tipped the local balance of power significantly in Tehran’s favor. And once Iran cleans the ISIS mess in Iraq, Iran will be happy, the U.S. will be happy, while all we have done is chase out ISIS while Iran’s Shiite militias can  already be seen running amok in Iraq.


Under the new Egyptian government, ‘DOG JIHAD’ is against the law

Four men face trial in Egypt after horrific footage of the brutal torture and street killing of a dog sparked outrage when it was aired on the Internet.



Al-Arabiya (h/t Susan K)  What makes this so unusual, in case you are unaware, is that most Muslims hate dogs and consider them “filth” because their prophet Mohammed said (black) dogs should be killed. The exceptions are working dogs and dogs used for protection. There are many posts here of Muslims brutalizing/killing dogs here. (See links below)

Among the arrested is the animal’s owner, who said at the time that he was powerless to prevent the killing. In the video, three men who had argued with the owner chained the dog to a street lamp at night and then stabbed and hacked the terrified animal with knives as onlookers failed to intervene.

The other 3 killers arrested

The other 3 killers arrested

An arrest warrant has been issued for the owner, and the three men arrested on Thursday are accused of “torturing to death a domestic animal,” among other charges.  Farid al-Deeb, a prominent lawyer and legal expert, told AFP the suspects could face a maximum of six months in prison if convicted.

This video will likely be removed by Youtube soon so if anyone can post it on LiveLeak or elsewhere, I will add the link.



























Islamic State (ISIS) releases chilling new video of Kurdish Peshmerga troops in orange jumpsuits being interviewed as a prelude to their executions

In the latest propaganda video from Islamic State, 21 hostages are paraded in cages through the packed streets of Iraq to cheers and jeers. But in a cruel twist, the orange jumpsuit-clad prisoners are interviewed by their captors – ahead of their presumably grim fate.

UK Daily Mail  The nine-minute video (See ISIS full video HERE) allegedly shows 21 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, who are paraded through the crowded streets of the Iraqi province of Kirkuk, before being seemingly marched to their deaths. 

The prisoners are driven one by one on the backs of pick-up trucks along with flag-waving militants – who are cover their faces and carry firearms – accompanying each prisoner. 

Several men are then interviewed by a militant, who carries a microphone bearing the terror group’s insignia, before being taken out of their cages and pushed to their knees.

The camera then stops on several hostages in turn and text appears on screen, apparently revealing details about each individual.


And the footage ends with a haunting shot of an elderly man’s face before abruptly cutting to black, hinting that a terrible fate awaits him and his fellow prisoners.

Shiraz Maher, senior fellow at the International Center for Study of Radicalization at King’s College in London, wrote on Twitter: ‘New Islamic State video shows Peshmerga being paraded through Kirkuk province in cages.’


He says the video is ‘not as gory’ as previous ones, but adds that although it ends before it is seen, the men were presumably murdered.

Earlier this month, a video emerged showing a similar procession apparently taking place through Kirkuk in northwest Iraq.


Those men were purportedly burned alive on camera in a horrific echo of the murder of Jordanian pilot Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh.

Lt. al-Kaseasbeh was filmed being burned to death by Islamic State extremists in a 22-minute film which was expertly edited before being posted online.


Titled ‘Healing the Believers’ Chests’, it showed the captured airman locked in a cage before a trail of petrol leading up to its bars is set alight.

The terror group and the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have been locked in a series of tense battles for control of the Kirkuk province since January.


The video comes as a senior U.S. military official said a massive operation to retake Iraq’s second-largest city from the Islamic State using up to 25,000 Iraqi troops will likely begin in April or May.

The official from U.S. Central Command said the operation would involve 12 Iraqi brigades, five of which would be trained for the mission by the coalition in the coming weeks.


Those five would make up the core fighting force that would launch the attack.

But they would be supplemented by three smaller brigades serving as reserve forces, along with three Peshmerga brigades who would contain the Islamic State fighters from the north and west.


News of the offensive comes amid reports the terror group is facing a growing number of defections and cases of corruption in its ranks in two of its major strongholds, Mosul and Raqqa.

This is a continuation from a video which appeared on February 15th, showing the caged Peshmerga driven through  streets crowded with extras, in the Hawija district.  The video shows the quiet composure of the Peshmerga, and even without understanding what they say, one can pick up on their defiance.

Oh, Lookie! Obama’s pals from the “moderate” Free Syrian Army also like to behead their enemies

The U.S. and Turkey are currently training, arming, and funding what they call the “moderate” Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels who are fighting against the Assad Regime, NOT ISIS.

Here we see Uzbek and Chechen Muslim members of the FSA cutting off the head of a Syrian soldier during the offensive in Mallah.



Payback’s a bitch. Here we have a group of FSA rebels who were killed by the Syrian Army in Aleppo. No beheadings here.
