Canadian hostage in Afghanistan – video

Joshua Boyle and his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, who were taken hostage in 2012 near Wardak province, a mountainous region just 40 kilometres from Kabul, and have appeared in a two and half minute video, making a plea for their captors not to be executed in reprisal attacks.

our captors are terrified of the thought of their own mortality approaching, and are saying that they will take reprisals on our familyThey will execute us, women and children included, if the policies of the Afghan government are not overturned, either by the Afghan government or by Canada, somehow, or the United States.”

The Crumbling Nations

Crumbling Nations

A (nearly) nine minute video released through sendvid from Wilāyat al-Raqqah, August 26th, called “The Crumbling Nations” has spiked the interest of a number of groups as it shows the child executioners of Raqqa. This is by no means a new phenomenon and has been well documented over the last two years. Children play an important part in Daesh propaganda and continue to do so. In this video the boys have been labelled, as  Abdullah al-Britani  (the Briton), al-Masri (the Egyptian), al-Tunisi (the Tunisian), al-Kurdi (the Kurd) and al-Uzbaki (the Uzbek). (The yelling or shrieking is ear splitting and has been adjusted in this video)

To the atheist Kurds, what is between me and you are days during which the hair of young children turns grey. The war with you has yet to begin. Neither America, France, Britain, nor Germany will benefit you,”

The video contains three executions one performed by the ubiquitous camo wearing Mujahideen, then the children and finally the bearded old men squad of four. (It is interesting to note that ammo is used sparingly.)

Life inside the Caliphate – Kirkuk August 2016

Daesh-payments-24-6-2016

Video released from Kirkuk showing life “inside the Caliphate”. The video breaks down into three parts showing a battle scene and weapons looting and the dragging of dead bodies around, the paying of funds and the dispersement of staples such as cooking oils to foreign fighters and finally a session of goat herding.

Kirkuk-gaotherding-24-8-2016

The video is peppered with long monotonous dialogues spoken aloud by men who look like they need a good nights sleep. The video shows how the flag waving, finger pointing, Quran quotes are just a thin veil over what the Caliphate’s main preoccupation really is, making money….and goats.

 

South of Manbij – VBIED

Video released through Amaq showing the detonation of VBIED in the village of Maqta Hajar Saghir, south of Manbij directed at YPG fighters. By counting the seconds between the visible explosion and the when the blast sound is heard, the distance from the explosion (where camera is) can be calculated at about 2.1 kilometres. Sound travels at 344 metres per second or 1129 ft/ sec.

The lack of goons standing around with guns does n’t mean they are not  there, just out of shot for this video. Of course, trying to verify this video being made in Mosul in August 2016 is something of a magic trick, the video could have been made anytime in the recent past. It may be more pertinent that Amaq have either just received this video or it is ‘stop gap content’ as other field contacts have been neutralised or disrupted.

Eighteen minute video released through Al Furat titled “The state of the Euphrates:Vsikveckdhm God” (word of God). The title also appears in other uploads as “And Allah will be sufficient for you against them

America-warning

In the video there are some surprises that may lead one to think there is an insider within the coalition forces. In one segment a Free Syrian Army officer is shown being video dialogue coached and told how to present body language while speaking.

StateofEupr

Next, the failed attempt to seize Abu Kamal, after air support failed to attack the checkpoints, because the beacons on the ground were not activating, (i.e, men on the ground using cell phones to send GPS co-ordinnates to coalition command), the confusion is evident from the recorded messages between the commanders. The soldiers that were left behind, are later shown beheaded, followed by the ubiquitous weapons haul shots.  In one of the many boxes seized are new “Phantom Hobby Drones” shown with Go Pro gimbal and other range extending components attached. Ammunition boxes full of plastic explosives, anti-tank guns and electrical components, computers, radios, all which will make for revenue raising or trade. The complete video is subtitled in English as it is directed to primarily to an American forces audience.

In another segment, the recorded messages between commanders are shown with reference to Daesh commanders escaping battle dressed as women. Interesting, a video appears showing Daesh dressed as women. (here)

Child Beheading July 2016

Abdullah Issa

Just when you think beheading videos had reached the limit of hell on earth, a child beheading video appears which adds one more tier of human evil.

The video starts with a group of men standing around a tray truck with a teenager in amongst them. The teen, who has been named via Social Media as Abdullah Issa, seems disorientated and drowsy. One of the men lightly slaps his face, in an attempt to keep the teen from fainting. This may also have something to do with the intravenous drip which is seen in the teens arm, a bag can also be seen bandaged around his waist. The men from Turkish-backed ‘Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement’, claimed the teen was a fighter from Liwa al-Quds (aka The Jerusalem Brigade), a Palestinian pro – Government militia operations in the Aleppo area, who was captured, or more likely “dragged out of a hospital bed”, in Handarat by members of a local rebel group. Liwaa Al Quds have been driven out of their homes in the Handarat Camp once Islamist militants took over the neighborhood. Today, the group is fighting alongside the Syrian Army to retake the Camp

The video appeared after violent clashes between pro-government forces and rebels in the vicinity of Handarat on Tuesday, 18 July 2016.

Gates of Fustat

The sixteen minute video has some interesting details, one of them being the fact that this particular video has been labelled and released through other Daesh outlets. The still images from the video appear (here), The image below shows the “Hims” label…whilst on the video itself the label is clearly from another media prong. This could be partially due to restrictive internet upload facilities, or that any successful Daesh battle videos are divided up amongst media outlets to give an impression that more is indeed happening, when it is not.

The next element of this video is the way in which Daesh have taken video from the opposition and posted it in the battle scenes.

Turkey – Coup d’état – July 2016

Bosphorus

Turkey has yet again convulsed through yet another coup attempt with nearly 170 people dead and over eleven hundred injured. This time the alleged agitator is Fethullah Gulen, who resides in America.

Fethullah Gulen

The scenes in the video below show tanks running people over and helicopters firing on unarmed civilians. The situation is now contained as some three thousand ‘soldiers’ have now either surrendered or capitulated in custody. A Stalin purge will ripple through the Turkish military and ruling elite, as diplomatic machination begin for a helicopter crew who landed in Greece and who now seek asylum. (here) Could there be more instability in Turkey?

VIED – drone vision of attack

The video below is the last segment in a video entitled, “Deterrence of the Monotheists of the Campaigns of the Apostates – Wilāyat Dijlah” which is a collection of Daesh battle videos ending with a vehicle driving up to a check point and exploding.

The event is recorded by a drone camera which sits at the upper most of its altitude range and slowly pitches away from the growing mushroom cloud to the video end.

Bastille Day Lone Wolf

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a truck along the Promenade Des Anglais killing over eighty people. The Promenade was filled with people from the hotels walking in the evening. The truck was only stopped by killing the driver.The nature of the attack may be unexpected, but there were clear signals that something was percolating through the internet upload sites. The older Daesh videos were being revised and edited, translated and subtitled in French.

Promenade-Insert

With the new territory of Telegram and other encrypted instant messaging applications, unlisted videos (only people with link can view) can be passed around through groups or cells, the probability that one of the cell members takes action is increased when this type of indoctrination is used on vulnerable individuals with unstable mental states. Expect media to report Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhel’s story to be one of social isolation and undiagnosed mental health issues… (here) The reality of the extreme action will be covered over, the root cause again mislabeled and forgotten until it happens again.

Cantlie guide to exploded Mosul

 

John Cantle reappears on the internet through Amaq media reporting on the coalition bombing of Mosul and the money exchange in Raqqah. Aside from the obvious changes to Cantlie, and the missing orange prisoner garb, the dialogue revolves around the efforts of the Coalition forces to disrupt the Islamic State. With the same dramatic pathos of raising his arms summoning a drone attack in earlier releases (tangentcode), Cantlie takes the viewer on a guided tour of  the bombing sites refering in the video to the April 2016 bombing of Mosul University which was targeted as part of action against a bomb making factory and the administrative controllers.

MosulUni

The bombing of the money changing offices in Raqqa was not just an indiscriminate bombing of a shopping centre, as Cantle describes it, the money exchange and forwarding services play a vital part in the day to day operations of Daesh, who are all about the money.

Cantlie-Raqqah-1

The site which Cantle stands in front of, drone camera buzzing, is the same site Daesh have used for public executions and other war crimes.

AeEaqqa-fullshit

The reality of life in Raqqa can be seen in the last frames of the video, the drone turns and the viewer can see the armed, masked thugs who stands guard as Cantlie records. (The same armed thug that guard the executions and make the people attend.)

Allah’s Soliders – Undercover

The video “Allah’s Soldiers” originally released through  French media (here) now with English translations and voice over added. The storyboard of the undercover journalist infiltrating an online radical group is something of a formula in modern media with some standard drone pad shots and custom graphic titles the production conveys an important message throughout. The young men that are “radicalising” are lost in a on-line world of instant messages and battle videos. 

One of the main lessons was that I never saw any Islam in this affair. No will to improve the world. Only lost, frustrated, suicidal, easily manipulated youths.”

Raqqah Indoctrination

Raqqa-10-7-2016-3

The sixteen minute long video is much of the same type of vision produced from over a year ago. The fair ground, the Ferris wheel, the drone shots and the laughing children have lost some of their sparkle. The children seem dull and unkempt. This is n’t the only sub-detail the viewer can spot. The scenes in the Mosque, men with walking sticks and crutches, bandaged lower limbs, all point to a population which has seen recent unrest. The title of the video “God and grow up on Mahdakm” which refers to the ‘redeemer of Islam‘ (wiki) follows a teenage boy who has won a competition in physical agility, to go about delivering ‘gifts’ to injured foreign fighters. An interesting moment appears as we visit a group of injured foreign fighters, one in particular who seems very aware of the camera, has also appeared in the January 2016, “Instructions To Indonesia” (tangent code).

The video shows in graphic detail, as it has on a serial basis, the indoctrination of the people has been thorough.

Daesh Ideology – Spin Doctor

The video released through Al Hayat is almost a copy of the earlier release “Kill them. where ever you find them” from February 2016. The most substantial difference is the addition of English subtitles. The video shows the media cycling that Daesh use in which they will build on events that have been attributed to them. Daesh are an “after the event cheer squad” and now only seek to indoctrinate through cell phones and Telegram chats. And in that model are inherent weaknesses, however the success and failure ratio does not need to be more than a tenth of one percent of a population to achieve the end game.

And Cast Terror Into Their Hearts – Daesh

Wilāyat al-Raqqah media release with some nice collage intro transitions, some quaint drone street scape followed by the dialogue pieces from the masked and finger pointing pontificators.

TerrorHearts-dialogue

Even without understanding a word of what is being said the message of this video is…”leave us alone, or  expect more lone wolf attacks”…something like that.

The video ends in a senseless murder performed by Daesh chief executioner Hicham Chaib, aka Abu Haniefa.

Daesh were handed the resounding tactical loss of Palmyra and the timing of this release could be seen as a reflex reaction.

 

Abū Sayyāf in Sulu – Pledge of Allegiance

“Pledge of Allegiance From Katībat Jund al-Tawḥīd of Jamā’at Abū Sayyāf in Sulu, Philippines to the Caliph of the Muslims Ibrāhīm Bin ‘Awād al-Ḥussaynī al-Qurayshī”

In the seven minute video a dialogue is presented by a script reading militant who stands surrounded by a dozen, perhaps more, black clad individuals doing their best poker face stare. 

AS-21-3-2016

Daesh t-shirts, flags and even embroidery patches can be seen adorning the collective as they pledge allegiance to Daesh.

Sulu is part of an archipelago in the Philippines (wiki) and has a long history of trade. In 1898 the Spanish – American war took place which led to the 1898 Treaty of Paris and the American occupation of the region which ended in 1946 with Philippine Independence.

Philippines – flags and Bay’ah

AbuBakhr

Video titled Bay’ah to the Caliph of the Muslims Abū Bakr al-Baghdādī”, (an oath of allegiance to a leader). The stumbling production starts with a group armed men walking through a jungle some holding flags, others holding the Quran. A dialogue follows where three of the men are introduced. One then takes a piece of paper from his pocket, unfolds it and reads out some dictate, badly. The video ends with an “all for one and one for all” type validation which is more at home with a football team. 

Not to be underestimated in their understanding of violence and the willingness to perpetrate it,  this video serves to prove the fact that on the ground, the thinking man is not present.

Sydney Shooting – Teen gunman dusted

The events surrounding the shooting at New South Wales Police HQ on the 2nd October 2015 has finally come full circle with the release of the gunman’s name and sadly the innocent life taken of Curtis Cheng.

Mr Cheng, a civilian employee, was shot in the back as he left the Police HQ. His only error was leaving the building when he did. Curtis Cheng

Farad Jabar Khalil Mohammad, a 15 year old Kurdish Iraqi, born in Iran, has been identified as the perpetrator shot dead by police at the scene.

SydShooter

The teen was believed to have attended the Parramatta Mosque prior to the event, which is a short walk to the Police HQ. His brother allegedly contacting police soon after the event.

New South Wales Police were denying a link to terrorism earlier in the evening of the Friday however as events transpired, it now seems as though that is now not the case.

The question this raises is what,if any was the connection to a UK court case held that same day.(here)

A fifteen year old was sentenced to “a life sentence with a minimum term of five years”, for his part in inciting an attack on ANZAC day 2015. (here) which resulted in Operation Rising.(here)

Could there be a link between the two?

The other questions this event raises is, how does a 15 year old acquire a hand gun?

Peshmerga Executions

 

Pesh-IS

This video from Erbil, Kurdistan Region, depicts the murder of seven Peshmerga. The knife pointing rant and the full metal jacket stares are all choreographed into a macabre production. The gratuitous violence of the executions is not contained as other productions releases, in fact quiet the opposite becomes apparent. This video is harsh in its delivery in an effort to shake the repetitive execution production and slap the viewers sensibilities into sharp focus.

ISIS suffered heavy losses at the end of September 2015 after Peshmerga launched a major offensive west of Kirkuk which led to approximately forty ISIS militants being dusted. Some of the Peshmerga executed in this video may also have been captured in January 2015, (February 2015 here & here) which at the time included the beheading murder of Hujam Surchi in Mosul, who has been immortalised below in his home Rovya, Duhok.

Islamic State Media Release Agenda

alshabab

Al Kataib video production release “A Gift for the Blessed Eid Al-Adha” a twenty seven minute video built around content from the June 26 2015 attack on the African Union base in Somalia by the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement, al-Qaeda’s branch in Somalia. The base was manned by 100 soldiers from Burundi, part of a 22,000 man African Union Mission in Somalia. The base came under attack in April 2015, (here). It was shortly after the June 26th 2015 attack, AMISOM forces left the area. (here)  Note : Burundi has its own set of issues as outlined, here in recent time.

Leggo-1

The battle is edited amongst dialogue transitions, starting with an Osama bin Laden speech, along with dialogue from a suicide bomber who later drives off to initiate the attack on the AMISOM base at Lego, Lower Shabelle.  As Toyotas with cannons reverse over the poorly constructed defences, the Burundi soldiers, outnumbered and outgunned and with out any support incoming, retreat as they stand little chance of surviving a fire fight. The base is looted and any injured soldiers playing possum are dispatched. 

This particular release timed for Eid-al-Adha, 24th September 2015 is an example of how Islamic State will use events from one region, to push an agenda in another region. The production releases are well subtitled carrying a message of duty and honour with notions of punishment and reward within extreme religious zeal.

As many countries constrict the travel to “no go” zones, hindering the flow of foreign fighters the pressure is now on the Islamic State media outlets to enhance the ‘struggle for Islam’ to a point of indoctrinating and inspiring singular events by individuals or small cells, who may already have grievances against society and the government and just need a tipping edge. This is how that edge begins.

The reality of the content is a small guerrilla force struggling for supply, without a geopolitical address, fighting and dying for an agenda they don’t understand, for a country or region they have never heard of.

The Legacy of the Prophetic Methodology

 

IS-Currency

The 55 minute video below is the Alhayat media release with quasi-profesional off the shelf kinetic storyboard graphics, along with proprietary software motion graphics. The main context of the video is the return to pre “Petro dollars” economy where only gold buys oil. The video pulls images from world war two movies creating a timeline up to and including 9/11. The release of the Gold Dinah is seen as a way to eradicate the corruption which is portrayed as endemic through the Western World and the foundation for corruption in the middle east facilitated through the creation of the “dollar bill” by the American Federal Reserve.

There is one interesting moment in the video where the narrator says, “Here in London..” when speaking of different cities. It may be a grammatical error or slip but it stands out in the carefully manicured script(23:22)

Geolocating Islamic State – Al Bukamal

 

The video above shows the execution of “ground spoilers” and is titled “The state of the Euphrates // || visible implementation of the judgment of God on the spoilers on the ground

However, what is interesting is the location this video is made. In the background is a ‘jet on a stick”, which is plainly visible completely painted black. 

What made me take notice of the black painted ‘jet on a stick’ was an image from September 2014 which Associated Press, and many other mainstream media, were using, images of ‘flag waving men’ climbing over a “downed jet” with the headline, “Islamic State Fighters celebrate after taking down a Syrian Jet” (September 2014).

Headlien ISIL

I found this story of the alleged “shot down” Syrian jet unsound, and quiet easily with google maps and through publicly uploaded pictures surrounding Al Raqqa region anyone could plainly understand that the story was fabricated. I had originally posted this in September 2014, which can be seen (here). During this search near Al Raqqa, I also found the ‘jet on a stick’ in Al-Bukamal, the same black painted ‘jet on a stick’ that we see in the video. 

Below is a still image from the video, and the google maps picture from Al Bukamal, September 2014 below it, (taken from the left side of the ‘jet on a stick’.)  To verify, the geolocation co-ordinates are 34.453616 40.919759

The video is careful to show the normality and every day life in the town, and the level of civil control that Daesh have in this region. For example, to paint an entire ‘Jet on a stick’ would take a lot of black paint. The way Daesh have kept it, and almost lovingly adorned it, as opposed to blowing it up is perhaps similar to their attraction to the Hilux Toyota.

Islamic State – Fake Headlines from World Media

The headline below appeared on 15th September 2014 across the internet like a heat rash.

Headlline

Below we see flag waving men climbing over an upturned MiG 21, with the caption “Islamic State fighters celebrate after taking down a Syrian fighter jet.

….really.

ererge

The popular news blog New York Post ran the story with the picture. The same story headline was run by nydailynews.com who omitted the picture, dailynewsen also ran the story with the picture as did a myriad of linked media news outlets and blogs, which can be discovered by simply using the headline in an internet search engine.

However if you take a closer look you can notice the weathering and the lack of any obvious damage. Generally when a jet aeroplane is shot down it does n’t remain in such pristine condition.

It was by a chance searching near Raqqah that I found where that MiG actually was. A static display, the concrete pylons can still be seen.

The picture below shows the area and the google maps upload image. The road number 4 runs along the south side of the Euphrates River, the intersection can be easily found near Al Tabqah.

IS – Music Video FISABILILLAH

DerTag22

This is a video which originally appeared in April 2015. It is a hybrid chant slash sing along with some basic melody and choreographed editing in a rough timeline. Images and video show the beheading murders of UK captives and other atrocities that Islamic State must consider some type of trophy in their war on everyone. The video is in German however English subtitle appear in what can only be compared to a Nazi marching cadence. (English version added below)

The video is being pressed back into the uploads arena perhaps because it was received so poorly back in April it has been decided to give it another cycle on the social media treadmill or maybe because they have nothing else..?

 

 

 

 

 

Brookman – frying pan into the fire

Brook-27-7-15

Adam Brookman has the auspicious mantle of being the first Australian to be charged with “performing services with intention of supporting a person to engage in a hostile activity in a foreign state.” under the new Foreign Fighters legislation.

Mr Brookman had surrendered himself to Turkish officials last Tuesday and was finally arrested on Friday night on his arrival in Sydney. Federal Police extradited Mr Brookman to Melbourne on Saturday evening.

ABrookman-2-27-7-15

It is alleged Brookman performed guard duty and reconnaissance for Islamic State during his time in Syria. Mr Brookman claims he was forced to join Islamic State which raises the question as to why he was allowed to leave.

Mr Brookman’s next appearance is slated for November 16th 2015.

 

Homs Child Executioner

 

childdaeshkiller

This four and half minute video is titled “Information Office of the State of Homs offers families (and ) the liquidation of a Captain in the Army Alnasiri”. The video shows a man with some light bruising and abrasions to his arms speaking with the all to common fear of his impending death.

The video continues to an outdoor setting believed to be the Western Hir Palace in the province of Homs. After a short dialogue the full depth of the horror unfolds as a teenage child steps forward and severs the captives head, and then poses with it in stylised theatrics.

The soldier is believed to have been captured from  Al-Bosayri army checkpoint.

Further to this, French school children recognised the child executioner from another death cult video..(here).

France – rising tide of anti Muslim sentiment

France is in a position of flux as it deals with issues which encompass the entire scope of the human condition. In recent time the country has been the epicentre for a number of urban terror attacks, the most notable being Charlie Hebdo shooting. (July 19th 2015)

This video from UK  looks into the rising tide of anti muslim sentiments in France and asks the question, “what it is like to be French and a Muslim in 2015?”

Drone Spy beheading

The video below shows the beheading of a man who is exposed as a collaborator spy. The evidence displayed is a small electronic device which is alleged to be used in the transmission of geolocation data to a UAV or ‘drone’.

This may be seen as retribution for the UAV strikes in recent days which have killed a number of high ranking ISIS leaders.(here)

 

Haditha – French Foreign Fighter’s Dust offensive

May 2015 and the Islamic State were on the offensive to take Haditha. In this video below there is an interesting ten seconds, (starting at 0.47) of what seems to have been recorded from an aerial video platform. That is to say that Islamic State have added unmanned video platforms to their tactical planning.

The hum of a quadcopter is clearly heard and the gimbal panning of the camera, are both characteristic of a small aerial video platform.

IS-drone

The “hobby drone” is quiet a capable unit, travelling up to a kilometre (out of the box) and reaching great heights. To quickly deploy such a unit and ‘scope’ out your environment gives a guerrilla force equal footing to super power, but at a fraction of the cost.

The video below title “Spark of the Euphrates“,  shows the preparation of the truck bomb  and the last moments of Abu Maryam al Firansi.

Carrying out the Hadd

Two videos showing the carrying out of the Hadd. People who have committed theft, adultery and apostasy, have a part of their body ‘cut off ‘, either a hand or a foot as punishment. The process is controlled and kept surprisingly sterile. Sentries guard an area where the punishments are to take place, as preoperative sterile technique unfolds ready to bandage the foot or hand post amputation. Some of the men are then bundled into an ambulance and presumably taken away for further surgical attention.

This second video has subtitles in English,..

 

 

Death by RPG, Drowning and Detonating cord

This video was originally released 23rd June 2015 and shows the murder of alleged ‘spies’ from the Iraqi Government inside Mosul at the hands of ISIS.

The first execution depicts four men being placed into a stationary vehicle which is then fired upon with RPG. The second shows an elaborate cage holding five men who are lowered into a body of water. Cameras strategically mounted on the cage captures the grotesque struggle as the men succumb to the effects of drowning. The cage is lifted out of the water showing the captives lifeless bodies, faces covered in internal lung fluids.

The last episode shows a number of men kneeling on the ground as their captor wraps a blue detonating cord about their necks. The ensuing explosive force is replayed in reverse as the camera pans out to show a lone captive watching as in a warning to others.

Khaled Sharrouf – legacy of a madman

This is the ABC interview from June 29th 2015 with the Australian Mother in law of Sharrouf who even in his ‘yet to be fully confirmed death‘ is still causing misery.

Speculation surrounds the death of Khaled Sharrouf, who is believed to have been a passenger in a car that was atomised in a UAV strike.

26th June 2015 – domino attacks

 

three-26thJune

The 26th of June 2015 ended a week into Ramadan 2015 as attacks left 156 killed in Kobani, 50 killed in Somalia, 37 killed in Tunisia, 27 killed in Kuwait and 1 killed in France.

Europe had n’t even sat down to lunch and the first event was over in France, another was unfolding and then a third was beginning its road to perdition. 

World leaders skipped into the familiar protocol of shut downs and parabolic threat levels as gore bloggers and loose end editors remotely actioned facts over the wire.

The suicide bombing in Kuwait, the Tunisian Resort attack, both which have been acknowledged by Islamic State, but not the factory attack in France, referenced calls for action from the talking Daesh heads oozing from the well oiled and fettled social media machine.

The image below shows the Grenoble attacker, Yassin Salhi and from 2012 (here).

Boko Haram – West African Islamic State Validation

The ten minute video complete with dual subtitles is a rambling speech by scarf-covered-face-AK-carrying-man in front of a couple of Toyota trucks in the classic Boko Haram production.

During the dialogue identification papers are shown from the attack on a small compound and a vehicle convoy which is shown in the second half of the video.

Injured people are shot dead and one man is beheaded in the tray truck. The video concludes with a revisiting of the October 2014 Nigerian jet wreckage which was in reality the result of the Nigerian Pilots bravery. (here)

Change-of-Heart Jihadists

Change of Heart Jihadists has a golden shine about it for media outlets who squeeze every drop of credibility from a story. But this time the jingo journos have come up with a “weaponised backhander“, an internet catch cry which any Islamic State Media producer with the slightest idea of  propaganda and ‘on the ground’ moral, would shudder at hearing.

Change of Heart Jihadists if correctly propelled could melt a hole through the recruitment drive and ultimately be the beginning of the end for the foreign fighter death cult.

Home sick, and bored, tired of being overly scrutinised, the guest house is like a prison, hours of prayers can all lead to a corrosion of moral. 

Of the 60 Australians currently on the ground with Islamic State groups in Iraq and Syria, it has been revealed up to a dozen want to get out. ”

Christians Executed – “Until there came to them – Clear evidence”

clearevidence

Video has been released from “Furqan Foundation for Media Production Progress” and is titled, “Until There Came To Them – Clear Evidence“. The video is some twenty-nine minutes long, an excerpt can be seen below.

ShaykhAbuMahkAnasanNashwan

The video is interspersed with Church demolition and interviews conducted with Christians from the “People of Dhimmah”, which outline the jizyah payment or tax to Islamic State. Four dinars, (18 grams) in gold or a payment in silver. 

jizyah

The video ends showing the execution by firing squad of one group of men at a location Wilyat Fazzan subtitled, “The worshipers of the cross belonging to the hostile Ethiopian Church” and then another graphic mass beheading on a beach shown as Wilayah Barqa. The video is brutal, as is the dialogue from the masked narrator, describing how non-believers will not be safe, “even in your dreams“.

ISIS executes three asylum seekers deported by Israel

Message to Kazakhstan from Muhajidin

The video from KAVKAZ, March 2014 titled “Those Who Were Truthful With Allah” and is somewhat of a warning to aspiring fighters. The narrator during the video is Abu Anisah al Kazakhi (19), who as a graphics title explains, was later killed. (here)

As the dialogue progresses, accompanied with English translations, Abu warns not to,believe the media, the news and the Internetwhich claim that the Kazakhs have been killed. The group of men stand around a canon mounted truck with their best mean faces and some old AK47’s no doubt sold to them along with a watch which is right twice a day.. 

The video ends with images of four members of the “platoon” bled out and looking quiet dead.
