Stay For the End Times – Halab

Twenty minute video “Stay For the End Times” from Halab showing suicide VBIED’s and the over running of an outpost, but the video also contains some  “before and after” scenes. Transitions are smooth in this production and the POV video game like reality turned up to maximum.  

The videos depicts a dead infant in a staged pose for the video. The full injury is shown through a sweeping pan as the men stand motionless.

Alert When There Is Danger – April 2017

 

Twenty one minute video from al Furat, released April 5th, coinciding with Rumiyah 8 and al Naba 75, all of which have a single common thread, Abu Sulayman, the Daesh on line media production creator, allegedly killed after an airstrike near Tabqa earlier this week. Sulayman aka Ahmad Abousamra, born in Paris, grew up in Boston, was the subject of a $50,000 reward stemming from connections to a Massachusetts terrorism investigation surrounding Tarek Mehanna, who was arrested in 2009 and convicted of terrorism-related charges in a Boston court in late 2011. 

The video shows a number of executions of retaliation for coalition strikes in which the King of Jordan is featured heavily in the images and news clips videos that accompany dialogue narrated in English. The brutal beheadings with the small near blunt knives is deliberate attempt to prolong the suffering of the victims.

“Surely Falsehood is Ever Bound to Vanish” – Afghanistan

Afghanistan –  “Surely Falsehood is Ever Bound to Vanish” an eight minute quasi professional video narrated in English which attempts to show the American tax payers the enormous resources which are poured into the thirty tear war with no end in sight. The title comes from (Qur’anic verse 17:81.)

The video shows militants gunning down soldiers as they escape, even taking one prisoner. The final scene shot from the ubiquitous floating drone shows a HumVee, packed with TNT,  oxidise into dust.

London Car Terror Attack

London.

On the anniversary of the Brussels attack (wiki) a man, (later named as Khalid Masood, aka Adrian Russell Ajao) has driven a car into people injuring up to 40 people and killing three. The attacker was quickly neutralised however only after stabbing and killing a policeman.

(One of the deceased was later identified as Utah man, Kurt Cochran).

Video below showing the speed the car was travelling, and the person who fell into the river. later identified as Andreea Cristea tourist from Romania.

Update – April 6th 2017 A 31-year-old Romanian tourist who plunged into the River Thames during last month’s terror attack outside the British parliament has died.

The car used in the attack was rented in Birmingham, where a number of arrests have recently taken place.

Almost a full day later Daesh push out a release through Amaq which has been seen by media as “claiming responsibility”. This is merely an acknowledgement of the act. If Daesh were responsible the notification would have been released minutes after, not nearly a day later.

“authorities will be concerned he may have become radicalised in prison.”

And You Will Be Superior – Wilayat Ninawa

Thirty five minute video from Ninawa “And You Will Be Superior” (Qur’anic verses 3:129 and 47:35), which documents the VBIED and sniper attacks in Mosul. The video starts with the attack on Iraqi forces from December 2016, (tangentcode) and proceeds through street fire fights between the Iraqi soldiers and Daesh. (video below)

Previous video from Mosul from August 2016 shows some of the same hospital personal. (tangentcode)

Drone video documents the suicide bombers driving up to their targets along with some intriguing video of helicopters passing by and at one point a coalition drone. *The explosions which are shown also provide an insight into the types of explosives Daesh are using.

The video includes sniper vision and demonstrates how injured fighters are used to man the VBIED’s with the familiar mantra “no excused” which was seen in Mosul in March 2015 (tangentcode), who can, will fight.

The video also shows a segment of Iraqi video showing men smoking cigarettes, something which was forbidden under Daesh administration.

Other interesting details are the “FILA” footwear one driver wears, which are identical to the “FILA” footwear worn by foreign fighters in Syria seen laying explosives at the Hayyan Gas Plant, February 2017.

Spot the take off area, then estimate the distance to the smoke on the horizon, this then provides an estimate of the range in which Daesh are currently capable of operating within. 

 

Vanguards of Redemption – Ain Assad Air Base Fire Fight

There is also a reference to a soldier, (below) who was executed after iy was revealed a family member appeared in a Jordanian training video.

Words Drenched in Blood

“Words drenched in Blood” is a ten minute production from Furat, mostly taken up with a rant about the obligations and duties of Muslims as seen through the teachings of extremist Islam. The English speaking finger pointer sits in his VBIED with a wild glazed stare, as he reads from what seems to be an iPad or a laptop, (in the reflection in his glasses).

This is a video which is desperate in its attempt to remain viable. Daesh now rely on the suicide VBIED and have adjusted their spin to include this new angle. This video narrative is aimed at the mentally unstable and vulnerable, isolated and easily controlled individuals to act out in terror acts.

Daesh Battle POV – The Sword of Courage

The twenty three minute video, “Sword of Courage” from Jazirah is a threaded together POV battle vision of Daesh storming an outpost and looting equipment.

This attack and plunder methodology has evolved from late 2014 as technology, training and equipment have become available. Daesh now start the attack from greater distances. As opposed to “sneaking up” and overwhelming their target, Daesh now have guided rockets, artillery and drones which has given them an ability to attack with fewer fighters for the same resource rich outcomes.

daesh-3-3-1

The video shows a half dozen lightly armed APC’s carry fighters to a post which has come under advanced fire and drone bombing. The advanced attack has used a grader-tractor to breach the post’s defensive dirt berms allowing a VBIED to drive through and detonate. A small number of survivors from the initial attack are slowly and maliciously picked off, their bodies defiled. The ammunition is looted and anything else that is not nailed down is either destroyed or stolen.

Daesh have been using drones extensively over the last twelve months from making propaganda videos to trailing VBIED’s, (tangentcode).  The system of delivery utilising hobby drones is as basic as it is destructive and is easily arranged with some modelling glue a plastic tube and the physics of time, speed and distance.

Early vision in this video is disrupted as the Daesh fighter with the GoPro is shot dead.

The same tactics of overwhelming light arms fire, flank and encircle are executed like a training run. The second fire fight includes a VBIED with devastating results. The Daesh fighters are well trained and battle experienced, running into the dust after VBIED  explosion ready to loot and collect all the oppositions ammunition in typical guerrilla drill, (and capture and imprison any opposition left alive.)

The final execution performed by an English speaking fighter with typical knife pointing rant, beheadings are turn into bleeding out the victim, then kicking the lifeless body into the dust.

Made Me Alive With His Own Blood

 

mademealivewithhisownblood

An eighteen minute al-Khayr production designed to lure in heroes for martyrdom through scripted dialogue, play-training in urban ruins, leaping from roof tops and an unsettling focus on young boys. The execution beheading and shooting of the alleged Kurdish PKK spies in an abandoned amusement park in Deir ez-Zor, come after long winding often convoluted dialogues from the teen with the typical “lights are on, but no one is at home” stare. This can be seen in the November 2016 video “Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us” (tangentcode). One interesting note which pushes a once well worn notion,”if you can stand up, you can fight” is the appearance of the one armed fighter, although briefly.

gtj-armless

The video takes a direction which Daesh relish whenever the opportunity arises of using the youngest child executioners as possible. One of the children looks more like it is afflicted with a genetic or kidney disorder and struggles to pull the trigger on what must be the smallest pistol available. The beheading is just as remorseless as the production team take a horror movie long shot of blood dripping through the playground equipment.

Daesh have prepared for counter offensives and as their grip on Mosul slowly erodes, their adaptability to take the fight to another area, to gather ammunition or weapons is shown in this video. Small lightly armed mobile groups with a suicide VBIED leading the assault with ‘drone follow vision’ of the explosion. It seems an expensive effort as personal are concerned, and in some cases the damage is often minimal. The tactic of sending in the exploding vehicle shocks the target long enough for the ground assault to unfold. This  technique of overwhelm, capture and loot is used in a number of routines and variations throughout the video. One well used method is to approach with RPG followed by heavy calibre machine-gun fire, or small truck mounted canons and  relentlessly fire on the post for hours until there is no return fire. The Coalition have in recent weeks destroyed Daesh ability of manufacturing VBIED, as can be seen some vehicles are ‘nailed’ together, while others are quiet professional.

Raqqah’s Orphan Fighters

Twenty minute video showing the training of child orphan soldiers. This type of video has been well documented over the last two years, (tangentcode + tangentcode). The children are shown training with live fire and in one night muster, shown getting out of bed, putting on their webbing and standing in parade formations before marching into the night. One poignant moment in the video is when one of the children describes the loss of his family from the result of bombings, blubbering with tears standing in the house ruins is a pathetic moment endured only for propaganda purposes, and finally extorted during the execution scene.

In another section of the video the children can be seen watching the grotesque, “Makers of Illusion” (tangentcode) the camera catching their remoteness at the details of the slaughter scene.

In some attempt to balance this content the children are last seen praying in earnest in a juxtaposition to what they are training for which becomes apparent as the final exercise unfolds.

Turkey – Reina Nightclub shooting

turkey-reina-gun-1

reina-gunman-2

 

 

 

 

 

A single gunman has attacked a nightclub in Turkey killing thirty nine people and injured sixty eight, four critically. Reina is a popular nightclub which has patrons from all parts of the world. The stategic location of the club should be noted as it backs on to a river and has a small car park around a slightly curved road at its front. 

These details would have no doubt worked in favour of the lone attacker. Cover is provided for an attack on the entrance, as well as providing a staging area, (change into costume providing haemo splatter protection), which is out of sight from security. An escape would also involve such elements as the lone gunman “vanished” from the scene and is still at large.

The repetitiveness of terror attacks on Turkey have left the people numb, as if accepting that this type of event is a part of modern Turkish times. This acquiescence must be removed from a populous mind set as it does nothing but allow terror to become normalised, something which should never be allowed to happen in a society.

Karlov Assassination Connections

Andrei Gennadyevich Karlov, (wiki) served as ambassador to Turkey and earlier in his career had worked as the Russian Ambassador to North Korea. He was assassinated on December 19th 2016 in Ankara while attending an Art exhibition by an off duty Turkish Policeman, Mevlut Mert Altintas. The attack was a cowards act and should be remembered as the act of a coward.

The first question that should be asked is. “why was an armed person standing behind the Ambassador?” Regardless of being an “off duty” policeman or any other excuse media offer, this is a “no brainer” in regards to security.

This cowardly event may well be connected to this release from 15th December 2016.

khurasasani

===================================================================================================

It is very grief-stricken to look at the current conditions of Sham (Syria) and Iraq, especially the situation of Halab (Aleppo) where children, aged man and woman are being targeted. The blood of Muslims is so cheap that the Muslims are being killed in hundreds of numbers. Thousands of women are being widowed. The kids are being orphaned and fatherless. By witnessing the disgraced condition of Muslims, my heart bleeds.

That was a time when Muslims were living prosperously and conveniently under the Khilafah (caliphate) and splendid news and information of triumph were arriving from every place. Each and every place of Muslims was a place of peace and love.

But nowadays, by looking at current conditions, I cannot estimate that those were the Muslims who ruled all over the globe. It is because the Muslims are living inglorious life everywhere and they have accepted infidel and enslaved system of law. Every Muslim country is in state of war either with their unscrupulous leaders or stuck with crusaders. And the countries which are somehow safe from the war, have become alliance of the crusader and have absolutely accepted the enslaved life. They have preferred the comforts and joys of Kuffar (infidels) over the Muslims and in the same way, they mourn over the griefs of Kuffar (infidels) other than the griefs and sorrows of their Muslim brothers.
Though they would have considered the happiness of Muslims to themselves and in the same way, the sorrows of Muslims, too, as stated in Hadees as our Prophet Peace Be upon Him said:

الْمُسْلِمُونَ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ، إِنِ اشْتَكَى عَيْنُهُ، اشْتَكَى كُلُّهُ، وَإِنِ اشْتَكَى، رَأْسُهُ اشْتَكَى كُلُّهُ

“The Muslims are like a single man. If the eye is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted. If the head is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted.”

Likewise if an individual Muslim is in pain, all Muslims must feel that pain too.

But now this quality is totally obsolete and we Muslims are completely senseless.

It is very sorrowfully stated that the Kuffar (infidels) have become successful in their profaned intentions and they have settled the democracy over us by abolishing the Khilafah (caliphate) and dividing the Muslim countries in pieces. Kuffar (infidels) have limited their thoughts to their countries only. And today, for the sake of his country, Muslims are ready to cross all the boundaries. Even they don’t grudge the killing of Muslims. In the same way all the Muslims have become the noxious patients of so called patriotism. Even the Ulama’ (scholars) are singing the songs of the country. They are relinquishing the system of ALLAH Almighty and are making efforts for strengthening of the system of Lord Macaulay.

The Kuffar (infidels) have targeted every Muslim country one by one on the name of so called terrorism and then they began the massacre of Muslims in that country. Initially, Afghanistan and Iraq became the victims of that war on terror but Muslims remain quiet and even some of them became the allies of Kuffar (infidels) against their own Muslim brothers.

Gradually Kuffar (infidels) targeted every Muslim country after one another and negligence of Muslims was expanded parallel and now the time has come that every Muslim country is besieged in this “coop” so called war on terror.

And now Ulama (Islamic scholars) have adopted the logic tacts and are living their lives under the infidel system of democracy. They are now shamelessly enticing their fiducial trustees on this foul path.

Despite the facts that the blood of Muslim is being bleed in all quarters but still neither the public is ready to get rid of this heedlessness nor the so called Ulama’ (Islamic Scholars) are willing to fulfil mandatory task, though they consider themselves as the inherits of Prophets.

But if the scenario is witnessed through the factual eyes then the most of these Ulama’ will give the practical example of the saying of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:

عُلَمَاؤُهُمْ شَرُّ مَنْ تَحْتَ أَدِيمِ السَّمَاءِ

“Their scholars will be the most evil under the sky”

And for the pleasure of these secular leaders, they never grudged to change the teachings of Quran and Hadees fallaciously and now in these current worst conditions they announce the jihad bin nafs as the Jihad-e-akbar (biggest Jihad)

And it can easily be identified from the lives and sayings of some Ulama’ (scholars) that they do not permit for Qitaal (Jihad) in the current situation rather than they believe in the implementation of religion within the boundaries of politics and expedience. Though the Quran has specified the Qitaal Fi Sabeelillah (Fighting for the sake of ALLAH) for the extermination of the harmfulness and noxiousness.

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ

“And fight with them until there is no more persecution”

But Alas! The modern developed mentalities have declared the Jihad as terrorism and noxiousness rather than the Shar’iah has declared this, an open Fitnah (persecution).

And now where these modern inventors of religion are claiming the quitting of Jihad as peace and blessing but the Shar’iah has declared it disgraceful and inglorious.

As the Rasoolullah Peace Be Upon Him said:

وتَرَكْتُمُ الْجِهَادَ، سَلَّطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْكُمْ ذُلًّا لَا يَنْزِعُهُ حَتَّى تَرْجِعُوا إِلَى دِينِكُمْ

“When you neglect Jihad, then Allah will send upon you humiliation that will not be dispelled until you return to your religion”

The antidotes are considered to be as poison and poisons are considered as antidotes.

O Allah, wake up the Muslims from this conscious sleep and help them to recognize the somnolent and true Ulama’ (scholars), for the aid of their oppressed brothers.

Let them to be on the path of Shar’iah al Mutahharah as a result of this.. Aameen.

The forty seven minute video released, (originally through YouTube) titled Hunters of the Shields–Wilayat Ninawastarts with a historical run through of battle inclusive with battle elephants. This is in an effort to explain the guerrilla tactics as once extolled by Mao Zedong through the paradox, “revolutionary movements are not dependant on complex mechanical devices.” (Youtube)

The context of the video outlines the Islamic States battle with, and success in destroying armoured vehicles and the Abrahms Tank. John Cantlie appears watching the frontline battle videos in what seems like an editing room. No doubt stitching togther the video files received from frontline fighters.

Cantlie then narrates the POV videos showing the mujahideen sneaking up and throwing a grenade into the opening of the tank’s turret. Cantlie calls the “Abrams”  tank “the Abrahams”  through the dialogue and gives a run down on its cost and capabilities,

Cantlie then takes the viewer on a guided tour of the Al-salam Hospital, which has been almost completely destroyed by ambush on the 7th-8th December 2016, (red marker in map below). The tactic as Cantlie explains, was to allow the Iraqi Division to take the Hospital and then surround it, “like a fish and a lure”. Fox News described this as “a lethal mistake” (here)
alashamhosp

Rummaging through the debris Cantlie picks up an Iraqi soldier’s helmet from the 9th Armoured Division, “he won’t be needing that anymore” he quips. He also shows a fragment from a Hellfire Missile which was used in an attempt to re-take the hospital.

Australian Man arrested advocating terrorism to kill Jewish People

A South Australian man was arrested in relation to videos he had made in November 2015. The man, his name surpassed by the courts, was at the time of his arrest, in jail in the States high-security Yatala Labour Prison. 

“In each video the defendant is depicted advocating with other persons engaged in acts of terrorism via the defendant providing explicit verbal instructions as well as physical demonstrations with weapons as to how to kill Jewish people,” said Commonwealth prosecutor John Clover.

The man is charged under section 80.2C of the Criminal Code Act 1995, which prohibits advocating the “doing” or “commissioning” of a terrorist act.

Videos advocating harm to Jewish people are not uncommon on internet upload sites. The charges alleged arise from a hotline tip which may have arisen after the videos were seen publicly

The case is listed for a hearing in March when declarations would be filed, a hearing in February is listed when a mental health report will be received.

Harbinger of the Deaths – Wilayat Dimashq

harbinger

Sixteen minute video released through Dimashq, “Harbinger of the Deaths”  on or about the 9th December 2016. This video release coincides with terrorist bombing in Egypt, Yemen, Istanbul, and Baghdad. Connected or not these releases condense fear and confusion giving birth to lingering fears in the citizens everyday lives. The death machine has also released killing instructions through Rumiyah 4 rumiyah4in concord with this release which ends in the execution of five captured Syrian “rebels” who are dropped off to the waiting black clad executioners in hessian sacks. The death blows are gratuitous with anatomical details in high definition. The fire fights which precedes this final atrocity are heightened with the use of ‘night-vision’ camera vision, sparks and tracers illuminating the pitch black creating a science fiction like backdrop.

Those Are My Fathers – Recruitment drive with a bullet

The fifteen minute video released through Al Khayr is a recruitment drive with a bullet. In recent times it has been painfully obvious that the fighter numbers are dwindling. In March 2015 video appeared showing what seemed like orphans being trained for fighting, (tangentcode). The extreme intent of “Those are my fathers” far eclipses any previous recruitment propaganda. With Daesh losing huge swarths of territory some estimates put the attrition of fighters as much as a half  and not less than a quarter. (pic below from January 2016)

oldmandaesh

The “farm or fight” mantra seems to have been lost in the realisation that it’s every able bodied man to the front lines. The storyboard ends with the execution of four men by the “fathers” who have lost their own sons in battle. The death sentences arise from alleged collaboration with coalition forces.

John Cantlie – Mosul has a problem

John Cantlie pops up in time to detract headline attention away from the SAA’s advances in Aleppo with a sympathy beat down Mosul style.

Throughout the video Cantlie neglects to mention the fact that Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, has been held hostage by Islamic State for just over two years, and that the supply of water to the civilians has been a tactic Daesh used in both controlling and punishing the population. Why let the truth get in the way of a good story?

The other flaws in Cantlie’s dialogue are propped up with interviews from civilians who theatrically gesticulate explanations of the hardships living in Mosul, whilst pointing out the painful obvious. Aside from the scripted narrative and over emphasising drama verbs Cantlie looks almost ghoul like with translucent skin and bony needle like fingers. The only thing missing in this quaint story board and bad two camera swipes…the Christians.

Before watching the video read this statement from the Archbishop of Mosul.

Daesh Recruiter Captured in Turkey

Neil Prakash, the Australian recruiter thought to have been hit by hellfire missile has been captured trying to cross into Turkey from Syria.

This vermin had appeared in a number of videos espousing the logic of death and the hijrah, (tangentcode) and was a key mouthpiece in the brainwashing of teenagers in Australia which led to the foiled Anzac Day plot 2015. (tangentcode)

The value of the intelligence which Prakash will offer will be invaluable to the battle against this vermin scourge. One reason why he was travelling could be his need for medical treatment.

An extradition process will now commence.

Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us

“Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us”  from Wilayat al-Jazirah Media, which feeds into the Islamic State Central Command along with Euprhates Media Office. The video is long on rants and finger pointing, one in particularly annoying ear bashing while the executioners accomplice  stands, mute as if for a moment sensing the ridiculousness of the situation they are in.

Daesh Drone Vision VBIED Attack – November 2016

This is an extract from a video titled “Indeed, Victory [Comes] With Patience” via Wilāyat Dijlah which shows a ground forces attack in tandem with a VBIED recorded with a hobby drone. The overwhelming surprise of the attack coupled with the ferocity of the fire fight allows enough leadtime for the VBIED to travel to the target and drawing cover fire for the ground fighters. As far as a propaganda tool this video production editing between the ground and mechanical support gives a sense of control and confidence, and outlines the basic strategy Daesh have used in Iraq over the past two years. This type of video production is designed to back up or bolster morale, to make the fighters feel that they have the backing and support from his trained comrades, and that they all fight for the same thing, it makes the whole operation look easy and that there is no chance anything can go wrong. In another war the now infamous Baghdad Bob’s and his report, “The Americans are on the Moon” is perhaps similar in its intent.

Police believe the teenagers attended the 15th September 2012, Hyde Park Riots (video)+(video) and held a sign saying: “Behead all those who insult the prophet.”  The two teens remain in custody as police investigate the possibility that other teens at East Hills Boys High have also been radicalised.

Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism – World Bank Report

world-bankesipve

The World Bank MENA Economic Monitor  from the Chief Economist’s Office of the Middle East and North African Region report,  “Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism” (pdf).

The report  splits up by region and in one aspect, points out what has become apparent that the Daesh and Foreign Fighters come from a educated and wealthy sector of a society. This was particularly of note with the Dhaka attack where five young man from stable and well supported and financially stable backgrounds perpetrated a terror attack. It is also noticeable from the ‘teen terror arrests’ that these radicalised young men come from comfortable backgrounds. (Operation Rising)

foreign recruits from the Middle East, North Africa and South and East Asia are significantly more educated than what is typical in their region

Two slides of interest shown below show the ‘average age’ of Daesh and Foreign Fighters and the ‘Schooling attained”. The report makes shows how macroeconomics and oil prices in the different regions have crashed in commodity prices, pushing economies into deep recession.

The Syrian war has ravaged the economy, output has shrunk between 50 to 60 percent, the Syrian Pound has lost 80 percent of value, the population has fallen by 23 percent, 12.4 million are displaced internally (7.6 million) and externally (4.8 million) since the start of the conflict, and education is on hold for many of the children living inside and outside of the country.”

The 18-month civil war in Yemen has resulted in 10,000 civilians killed, 2.8 million people displaced and most Yemenis suffering from shortages of food, water, sanitation and healthcare

The outlook for each of the regions is projected.

as projected oil prices trend upwards and production rises, growth is expected to pick up in the medium term. Tight fiscal policy will hold back government expenditure growth while simultane- ously developing new revenue sources, thereby reversing the fiscal deficit

AlShabaab Kenyan Rifles PoW – Leonard Maingi Kiiyo Speaks

kdf-prisoner

Leonard Maingi Kiiyo was captured in January 2016 and is seen in this Al-Kataib-Al Shabaab video pleading for his life. Leonard is a doctor in the nursing section of the 9th Battalion Kenyan Rifles based in Moi Barracks. The attack on 15th January 2016 in El-Adde (wiki) resulted in a number of others being taken hostage as explained through the subtitled dialogue.

In the video Leonard addresses Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, the commander in Chief of the Kenyan Army, as the director of the ill fated AMISOM manoeuvre crossing the Somalian border, asking for his help directly.

This is the largest defeat against the KDF since its independence in 1963.

Video released showing a detail of FSA soldiers beating a Syrian Alawite conscript unconscious. The video is choreographed in such a way to not show the faces of the FSA thugs, but in their fervour a few frames allow these vermin to be seen.

Videos like this are not entirely uncommon however this one comes at a time when UK dandies jig about in the UN calling out Russia and Syria for acts of “barbarism” (BBCwhen the UK fund (over£2 billion) groups, either directly or indirectly, such as the ones seen beheading a teenager (tangentcode), and now beating a defenceless individual into unconsciousness.

Fourteen minute video under the banner Wilayat Bengal, And The Disbelievers Planned, But God Planned. And God Is The Best Of Planners ” (Qur’anic verse 3:54) from 23 September 2016 set around the July Dhaka Cafe Attack (wiki). This is not the first time Daesh elements have popped their head up in this region. Four men were arrested in January 2016, after making video media aligning themselves with Daesh. (tangentcode).

dhaka-1-7-2016

The Bengal production could be seen as a gasp for breath as Daesh suffer geographically across Iraq and Syria. One point to remember regarding the Dhaka attack is that the young men were not from impoverished or disrupted back grounds, rather from comfortable middle class families, which provide a nursery for Daesh ideology planted by an extremists elements often disenchanted with their own misunderstandings and spiritual vacuums.  

In related news six top Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (wiki) activists arrested (here), “planning subversive activities in some South Indian states.”

A similar event of push media has also occurred with the reappearance of Boko Haram’s Abubakar Shekau, thought to have been killed, showing up in video media.

So Take Warning – Wilāyat Halab

takewarning-whalab

Nearly seven minute video ‘So Take Warning” which refers to Qur’anic verse 59:2. The video runs through the actions of coalition forces attempts to disrupt and destroy Islamic State from within. The execution takes place after a confession, the alleged spie is tied to a light pole, a machine gun pointed at him. The shooting once complete is not the end as the murdered man is then beheaded, blood dark and syrup like.

so-take-warning-wilayat-halab

It is He who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think they would leave, and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from God; but [the decree of] God came upon them from where they had not expected, and He cast terror into their hearts [so] they destroyed their houses by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, Oh people of vision.”

ninawa-fb-2

The full terror of the men’s murder is reinforced with the child who can barely reach the trigger of the automatic pistol it carries. This does n’t seem to be an obstacle as the child holds the pistol, the trigger actioned by an adult fighter. This type of child extortion or terror has been used by Nazi’s in WW2, children would often report their own parents if they overheard anti-Government small talk and again the same concept is seen in Orwell’s 1984. The institutional genocide embedded in the child lays waste to any ideas of normality in the future and does more to destroy a future society than can be rationally expected after decades of war.

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. ”
