Interview With a Former IS Jihadist

The House has affirmed Obama's long - covertly - implemented plan to arm the 'moderate' (define!) Syrian rebels. The following is an interview with a man who thought he'd joined the FSA, but instead found himself a member of the Islamic State.

"The CIA also believes that its previous assignment to accomplish [arming rebels] was basically a fool’s errand"  

Islamic State (IS) member "Sherko Omer" would now be a dead jihadist hadn’t he surrendered to the pro-Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in northeast Syria earlier this year. Journalist Rozh Ahmad met him to learn more about the experience. In this interview "Omer" explains how he left his hometown in Iraqi Kurdistan to join the Syrian opposition and eventually became an IS member, what he witnessed and the reasons for which he risked his life to exit the extremist Islamic organisation. "Sherko Omer" is a pseudonym. His real identity has been kept secret for security reasons. The views expressed are his own.

France Bombs IS, Kurdish Villages Under Attack

ISIS has joint its conquered territories in Syria and Iraq together (maps) in a new Caliphate simply named the Islamic State, or IS. IS is demanding that all Sunnis pledge allegiance to the Caliph, al Baghdadi. After the genocides on Christians and Yazidi Kurds, and three hostages were publicly beheaded, the world is ready to strike back at Mordor.

UPDATE: France has started bombing the Caliphate. While the fate of a number of Kurdish villages near the Turkish border is still in jeopardy. There are reports today that Turkey has finally opened the border for refugees. The area is perilously close the territory occupied by the Islamic State.

Islamic State Wants To Divide the West

The Caliphate, ISIS, the Islamic State, or IS alias ISIL released a series of videos showing beheadings of American and British hostages. With the publication of a propaganda video narrated by the British journalist, John Cantlie the tactic has changed.



Cantlie, a former war photographer and reporter for a number of UK publications, addresses the camera from behind a table in a dark room.

UPDATE: It quiet clear! The address of John Cantlie is meant to drive a wedge between the US and UK Governments and the public. France launches airstrikes on ISIS: Attack on depot kills dozens of militants in Iraq amid claims new hostage video shows group fears a U.S. assault 
  • Video of British hostage John Cantlie is more measured than previous ones 
  •  He calls on Western powers to negotiate with rather than attack terror cell
  • Change of tone has convinced experts that ISIS fears it is becoming isolated
  • Professor: They were so brutal. Now they're saying 'we're reasonable'
  • Compared to the way Al Qaeda softened its portrayal of Osama bin Laden
  • French confirm they targeted logistics depot in Iraq with air strikes
  • Letter from Muslims begging ISIS to release hostage is translated into Arabic

"Flames of War", Islamic State Open Threat To USA

To date psyops and propaganda have been more important than actual war fare against the Islamic State. Which suits Obama fine, since he doesn't want to define these kinetic movements as war anyway. Sustained counter-terrorism  operation suits the Obama paradigm just fine.



Sept. 17, 2014: The Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS and ISIL) has produced a new flashy propaganda clip intended to influence American public opinion against U.S. military action against the jihadist entity.

The Obama administration is conducting this incoherent non-war under a total mis identification. This counter terrorism operation has "nothing to do with Islam" (although the Caliph holds a PhD in Islamic studies); because in Obama's postmodern logic "no religion condones terrorism".  The boots on the ground to fill the vacuum aren't American, but belong to non existent 'moderate' Muslims (define!) that will amount to 5,000 men by the year's end. But on the side of 'the coalition of the reluctant' Obama's doctrine is also failing. Here's why Islamic countries can't afford to go wholeheartedly against the will of  their populations, and why the epithet Islamic needs to be separated  from Islamic State.

Kurdish Peshmerga Success Against Islamic State

Sunni and Shia forces are pitted against each other for hegemony of the region. ISIS has been carving out its Sunni Caliphate in Syria and Iraq (maps). The Shia led Government of Iraq is aligned with Iran. The West has no stake in the proxy war, but no one is immune to a toxic concentration of this kind. 



President Bush’s Prophetic Iraq Warning on 7/12/2007

UPDATE: Backed by US airstrikes, the Kurdish Peshmerga are making considerable progress in pushing back the Caliphate fan boys. Of  course, Obama gave away the game plan, so IS have gone to ground in their 'capital' Raqqa (Syria).

Turkey Would Welcome Muslim Brotherhood

It started as a kissing protest and became a movement against crypto Muslim Brother Erdogan's desecularization program and Islamic authority. Erdogan and his 'democratic' Islamists have the West completely fooled.

Muslim Show: Alone or the Group? (Cartoon)

Individualism is a threat to Islam. The community of the faithful has a name: the Ummah. Islam would not be able to keep it together without social pressure. The tribe prevents individuals from wandering off the village grounds under threat of death and worse. This cartoon tells the story.


Islam's anti individualism at a glance. This is one of the reasons Islam is entirely antithetical to Liberty and Western liberal democracy which is oriented on the sovereignty of the individual. H/t @BasimaFaysal
