IRAQ: Two French jihadists with ISIS reported to have carried out suicide bombing attacks in Haditha

The Islamic State (ISIS) used two French suicide bombers in a coordinated assault on the western Iraqi town of Haditha. One of the bombers has been featured in the past in an Islamic State propaganda film calling for more French recruits.

Long War Journal  The two French have made ​​”dozens of deaths” according to the propaganda of the Islamic state .Abu Maryam Al-Faransi (Kevin Chassin) and Abu Abdul Aziz Al-Faransi committed two suicide attacks against military objectives near Haditha, a town in western Iraq. 

In the official martyrdom statement released by the Islamic State, the jihadist group said that Abu Maryam al Firansi “targeted a headquarters where the apostates gathered in the area of al Khasfa,” according to a translation of the statement by SITE Intelligence Group.

“He invoked Allah and wounded his steed amidst their gathering, leaving dozens killed and wounded, and turning their structures into rubble…” the statement continued.  The Islamic State said that the other French suicide bomber, Abu Abdul Aziz al Firansi, “followed him with a second truck, to target barracks of the apostates.”

One of the two men named Kevin Chassin (Abu Maryam), as researcher and consultant on Islamist Romain Caillet questions. This young Toulouse had grown up in the city Bourbaki. Coming from a non-Muslim family, he converted before radicalized and join the ranks of the Islamic state.

Abu Maryam al Firansi was previously featured in an Islamic State propaganda video that was released late last year. The video (below) promoted three French fighters of the Islamic State who burned their passports and called for French Muslims to wage jihad. In another part of the video, Abu Maryam threatened France by saying Islamic State “fighters will not hesitate to chop off the heads of the enemies of Islam if the French government continues bombing Iraq and Syria.”

LeFigaro  The family of Kevin Chassin Saturday received a strange phone call. His half-brother Brice was called by a jihadist from the Islamic state. It was announced that Kevin, aka Abu Mariam, was far one of the two leading French Friday kamikaze attacks against Iraqi military targets in Anbar province, says La Depeche du Midi .

In the process, the young man received a photo of his brother Kevin smiling, the index pointing to the sky, just before boarding a truck. Soon after, the young man rushed the vehicle loaded with two tons of explosives against an Iraqi military base. “From what I was told his friend, May 17, he recorded a video where he apologizes to his parents,” says Brice to Depeche du Midi.

The young man lives north of Toulouse, near the city Bourbaki where Kevin grew up. Two months earlier, he had learned that his older brother had left Syria for Iraq. “He said he had an ongoing project but it was useless to ask him questions. He always answered: I can not tell you about it, “he said to the newspaper.Recently, Brice said that Kevin had obtained a 10 day holiday in a palace of Mosul. A trip that takes today looks like a last journey.

ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS) claims responsibility for deadly suicide bombing that killed 20 at Shia mosque in Saudi Arabia

wpid-isisThe Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group said in an online statement that “the soldiers of the Caliphate” were behind the attack by a suicide bomber “who detonated an explosives belt” in the mosque in the Shiite-majority city of Qatif. It identified the bomber as Abu Amer al-Najdi, and published a picture of him.

Dawn  A suicide bomber detonated an explosives vest during Friday weekly prayers at a Shia mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia, killing 20 people and wounding several others, a hospital official said. The official reached by telephone said more than 50 other people were wounded, including some who are in serious condition.

The kingdom’s Eastern Province has been hit by previous attempts by extremists to foment sectarian tensions with its large Shia community, including a deadly shooting in November.

The interior ministry said a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the mosque in Shia-majority Qatif, SPA news agency reported. “An individual detonated a bomb he was wearing under his clothes during Friday prayers at Ali Ibn Abi Taleb mosque in Kudeih in Qatif province,” the ministry spokesman said in a statement.

Qatif hospital issued an urgent call for blood donations after the attack and called in off-duty staff to cope with the high number of casualties, the activist said.

Naseema Assada, a resident of Qatif, said worshippers were celebrating the birth of revered Imam Hussein when the blast occurred. “The people are very angry,” she said, adding that they tried to stop police from entering the Kudeih area.

Residents had feared such an attack was coming, she said, because the government was failing to curb hate speech on social media against the Shia community.

“We don’t want a repeat of what is happening in Syria or Iraq here. This is our country and we love it. “The mufti of Saudi Arabia, the highest-ranking Sunni cleric, denounced the attack in a statement broadcast on state television. “It is a criminal act aimed at dividing the sons of the nation… and at sowing trouble in our country,” he said.

Turkey and United States condemn death sentences for former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and 105 of his Muslim Brotherhood henchmen

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed Egypt for sentencing the ousted president to death, saying the country was returning to the “old Egypt.”

“Old Egypt” as in before Islam? Sounds like a plan! Erdogan buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, also is “deeply concerned” about an Egyptian court decision to seek the death penalty for former President Mohamed Morsi, a State Department official said on Sunday.

It was just a year ago, before he was elected president by an overwhelming majority of the Egyptian people, that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi vowed to finish off the Muslim Brotherhood once and for all. Looks like he’s making good on his promise.

Barack Hussein Obama’s BFF, former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 other Muslim Brotherhood operatives, sentenced to death

An Egyptian court has sentenced former President Mohammed Morsi to death in connection with a mass jail break in 2011.  Sitting in a caged dock, Morsi pumped his fists in the air in defiance as the judge read his verdict.

_82447480_82447348

SKY News  The Muslim Brotherhood denounced the sentence as politically motivated and calls on the international community to stop it.

Another 105 members of the Muslim Brotherhood were also given the capital punishment. The defendants were accused of plotting jailbreaks and attacks on police during the uprising that overthrew longtime President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

The cases, like any capital sentence, will be referred to Egypt’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for his non-binding opinion before any executions can take place.

Morsi, however, was spared the death sentence by the court on charges that he and his aides passed state secrets to foreign groups, including Palestinians’ Hamas and Lebanon’s Hizbollah, to destabilise Egypt. But the court sought capital punishment for Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater and 15 others for conspiring with foreign militant groups against Egypt.

Muslim Brotherhood official Amr Darrag has condemned the ruling as politically-motivated and called on the international community to take action.

“This is a political verdict and represents a murder crime that is about to be committed, and it should be stopped by the international community,” Mr Darrag told Reuters in Istanbul.

Morsi is already serving a 20-year sentence following his conviction on 21 April on charges linked to the killing of protesters outside a Cairo presidential palace in December 2012.

He became Egypt’s first freely-elected leader in June 2012 in the wake of the uprising that ousted Mubarak. But he was removed from power by the army in 2013 after protests against his presidency. 

Sky’s Middle East Correspondent Sherine Tadros said the verdict is significant because it marks the first time in Egypt’s history that a president has been sentenced to death. “Of course Mohammed Morsi will appeal this verdict, it will be a lengthy appeal, so don’t expect he will be executed any time soon,” she added.

The army chief who overthrew Morsi, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is now president after having won elections last year. He has taken several steps to totally eradicate the terror-linked Muslim Brotherhood, once the largest political movement in the country.

Human rights groups have accused Egyptian authorities of widespread abuses in a crackdown on Brotherhood supporters as well as secular activists, allegations they deny.

ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS) close to taking control of Ramadi from Iraqi government forces

Islamic-state-flag-reuters-640x480The months-long fight for the key central Iraqi city of Ramadi now appears to be going ISIS‘s way, with the Islamic terrorist group capturing police headquarters, the Ramadi Great Mosque and even raising its trademark black flag over the provincial government building.

CNN  The ISIS push began Thursday, with armored bulldozers and at least 10 suicide bombings used to burst through gates and blast through walls in Ramadi, according to a security source who has since left the city. Dozens of militants followed them into the city center.

Anbar Gov. Suhaib Al-Rawi said the offensive, including suicide-attacks with explosive-rigged cars near security posts, continued into Friday.

Iraqi and allied forces fought back, with state-run Al-Iraqiya TV reporting at least eight coalition airstrikes on ISIS positions and Iraqi helicopters active in support of ground troops. At least 47 Iraqi security forces and 26 civilians were killed in the fighting on Friday, according to two security sources.

Ramadi has been hotly contested between the Islamic State and Iraqi forces for months, displacing at least 114,000 people from the area, according to the Iraqi government and United Nations estimates.

Offering Washington’s take on what’s happening, a U.S. official said Ramadi “remains very fluid.” The official characterized the situation as “50/50,” with Iraqi forces in control of much of the city center and ISIS in the suburbs surrounding it.

“There will be good days and bad days in Iraq,” State Department acting deputy spokesman Jeff Rathke said. ISIS “is trying to make today a bad day in Ramadi.” (Looks like they are succeeding)

He added: “We continue to provide targeted air support in ISIL-held and contested areas, and that includes numerous airstrikes in Ramadi today.”

The violence marks the latest in the tug-of-war for Ramadi. That city is just a few miles from an Iraqi army headquarters that ISIS blew up in March, and it’s also just 70 miles (113 kilometers) west of Baghdad and in the middle of Iraq’s Sunni Muslim heartland.

Schmuckretary of State John Kerry wants Thailand to accept the Rohingya Muslims thrown out of Myanmar

Even the Rohingya Muslim’s own native Bangladeshi Muslim government doesn’t want them back, so why should Thailand get stuck with them? They have enough problems with Muslims there.

myanmar-migrants-1

Independent  Myanmar Muslims left abandoned at sea after being refused entry to Thailand have been forced to drink their own urine to survive, it has been reported. At least ten people have died on the fishing boat which has been stranded in the Andaman Sea for the last week with up to 350 Rohingya Muslims on board, the BBC has reported.

An estimated 6,000 Myanmar refugees have been left abandoned as other countries in Southeast Asia turn boats carrying hundreds of people away. (Nobody wants more muslims, for good reason)

The region finds itself in a spiralling humanitarian crisis as members of Myanmar’s 1.3 million Rohingya Muslims attempt to flee Buddhist retaliation for Muslim violence in the Buddhist-majority country.

AFGHANISTAN: Taliban commanders gang rape would be male suicide bombers

Guess they figure he’s going to get his 72 virgins anyway, so they might as well do what Muslim savages do best before he blows himself up.

Khaama  National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan’s intelligence agency – has arrested a would-be suicide bomber who says he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders before sending him out for a suicide attack.

A statement issued Sunday by NDS states that the victim of the gang-rape planned to carry out a suicide attack on the police headquarters of Bagrami District of Kabul but he was arrested before he could reach to his target. According to NDS statement rape cases are not unusual within the ranks of Taliban and Haqani network.

Bilal, the rape victim-turned suicide bomber has told NDS that he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders Muzamil, Hijrat alias Abuzar, Tahir and Hanzila in Bati Kot District of eastern Nangarhar province and then sent for a suicide attack.

Bilal  says he was raped by a Taliban commander which was followed by another rape. “Abuzar raped me. He closed my mouth, opened my trouser and raped me”, Abduzar said. Bilal said after this he went home but when returned he faced the same again. This time it was not by a Taliban commander but another fellow suicide bomber.

“Another Abuzar, Tahir Abuzar who is now a suicide bomber raped me” he said. Bilal added that after the rape he was told by Tahir Abuzar to carry out suicide attack for washing off sins. “He told me to go and carry out suicide attack for washing off sins.” he said.

Look at how well the Obama Regime’s ‘peace in our time’ Middle East foreign policies are working out!

Iraqi official says the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists could be just hours away from taking the key Iraqi city of Ramadi, only 70 miles west of Baghdad.

RAMADI

CNN Falih Essawi, deputy head of the Anbar Provincial Council, said, “it’s unclear how much longer government troops can hold their front lines against the ISIS offensive.” The terrorist group’s offensive in Ramadi shows its resilience despite months of U.S.-led airstrikes and its recent defeat by Iraqi forces in the northern city of Tikrit.

Over the weekend, the militants seized control of areas north of Ramadi. Routes south of the city were taken some months ago.  That leaves only areas to the west of Ramadi in the hands of government forces, but those positions are under threat, Essawi warned.

Islamic Jihadists linked to al-Qaeda seize major airport and oil terminal in southern Yemen.

EuroNews  It comes as the country slides deeper into chaos, with Shiite Houthi rebels locked in fighting with pro-government forces backed by Saudi air strikes. The United Nations’ special envoy to Yemen even stepped down on Thursday after he failed to broker an end to the conflict.  Al Qaeda fighters are said to have also seized Mukalla, the capital of Yemen’s largest province Hadramawt, as well the oil terminal of Ash Shihr.
