Iraq

Why did we take their passports off them?

The Australian Security and intelligence Organisation (ASIO) has released details that show that jihadist tourists looking for a fight in the Middle East are dying just as quick as they get there.

Make you wonder if we have done the right thing in stopping these scumbags buggering off for a jihadist adventure.

It seems it is a one way trip to “paradise”.

Australians going to fight with extremist groups in the Middle East are dying as fast as they are arriving, meaning that the total number of fighters has remained stable at about 70, security agency ASIO has revealed.

ASIO deputy director-general Kerri Hartland told a Senate hearing on Thursday that the organisation knew of at least 20 Australians who have now been killed in Syria and Iraq while fighting with groups such as the Islamic State.

“The overall number of Australians currently fighting with or supporting Islamic extremist groups in Syria and Iraq has remained consistent over recent months,” Ms Hartland said.

“However, this does not reflect a reduction in the number of Australian travellers. Instead it reflects the relatively high casualty rate for Australians, with the numbers of new arrivals roughly keeping pace with the fatalities.”

ISIS cops another spanking, this time it’s the Peshmerga

ISIS is having a bad December.

First they ran into the Brit SAS and their quad bikes and sniper rifles.

Then it was the US Special Forces and a kicking they’ve never had before.

Now the Kurdish Peshmerga are taking it to them.

Kurdish forces in northern Iraq celebrated their biggest victory yet over ISIS on Friday after breaking, with U.S. air support, the lengthy jihadi siege of Mount Sinjar and freeing hundreds of trapped members of the Yazidi religious sect.

The Kurds claimed at least 100 Islamic militants were killed in the two-day battle to lift the siege. The victory by about 8,000 Peshmerga fighters will boost the Kurds’ confidence in their efforts to roll back the territorial gains made in northern Iraq by the fighters for the so-called Islamic State.   Read more »

NZ has a rape culture? Nah…this is a rape culture

The Green party in particular made a big deal this year of promoting the fact that New Zealand has a rape culture and David Cunliffe was sorry for being a man.

I countered many times that NZ doesn’t have a rape culture…but now we have the number one example of what a real rape culture looks like.

The rape culture of ISIS and hard core Islamists.

People in Mosul — the Iraqi city now under control of the group calling itself the Islamic State — got these and other messages loud and clear after sunset prayers Friday, when armed men handed out a color-printed pamphlet “Question and Answers on Female Slaves and their Freedom,” three residents told CNN.

“People started gathering in small groups chattering about this (document),” said one of the men, whom CNN didn’t name for security reasons. “Most are shocked, but (we) cannot do much about it.”

The document was first printed in October or November, then later posted on an ISIS website. It has gotten more publicity recently because of the Middle East Media Research Institute, an independent Washington-based nonprofit whose advisory board includes former National Security Agency Director Michael V. Hayden, onetime CIA Director James Woolsey and ex-U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

The idea that ISIS is kidnapping, selling and raping women and children is hardly surprising. Many such accounts have surfaced since the group began its often brutal run through Syria and Iraq, including chilling stories from members of the Yazidi religious minority. And these are on top of other horrific allegations, such as the killings and mistreatment of innocent civilians simply because they didn’t subscribe to ISIS’ extreme take on Sharia law.

How’s about that sharia law then?

ISIS at least has put it writing…modern Islamic slavery, authorised by the Quran.

Even then, it is rare to see its rationale laid out as plainly as in “Question and Answers on Female Slaves and their Freedom.”

In the document, for instance, it is explained that capturing women is permissible if they are “nonbelievers.” It adds, “Female slaves are the women that Muslims took from their enemies.

Much of the pamphlet talks about ISIS’ policy on having sexual intercourse with a female slave, something that the group cites the Quran to justify.   Read more »

ISIS murders 150 women because they refused to “marry” militants

The scumbag Islamic terrorist group ISIS has murdered 150 women who refused to “marry” their fighters.

At least 150 women who refused to marry militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, were executed in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights said.

According to a ministry statement released Tuesday, ISIL militants carried out a number of attacks in Fallujah and buried the victims in mass graves in one of the city’s neighborhoods.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said. “Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats.”    Read more »

Hamas has a new problem and it isn’t the Israelis

Hamas has a new problem in Gaza, and it isn’t the Israelis.

It is always dreamlike to see one Islamist terror group accuse the other of being too “lenient” when it comes to enforcing sharia laws. But it is not dreamlike when a terrorist group starts threatening writers and women.

That is what is happening these days in the Gaza Strip, where supporters of the Islamic State are accusing Hamas of failing to impose strict Islamic laws on the Palestinian population — as if Hamas has thus far endorsed a liberal and open-minded approach toward those who violate sharia laws.

Until this week, the only topic Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were talking about was how to rebuild homes and buildings that were destroyed during the last war between Hamas and Israel.

Now, however, almost everyone is talking about the Islamic State threats against poets, writers and women.

It is no secret that the Islamic State has a presence in the Gaza Strip. According to sources there, many disgruntled members of Hamas and other radical salafi-jihadi groups have already joined the Islamic State, with some fighting together with ISIS groups in Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this year, it was revealed here that Islamic State has already begun operating inside the Gaza Strip — much to the dismay of Hamas.

Hamas, nevertheless, continues to deny any presence of Islamic State inside the Gaza Strip. “There are no members of Islamic State in the Gaza Strip,” said Eyad al-Bazam, spokesman for the Hamas-run Interior Ministry.

Many Palestinians, however, do not seem to take Hamas’s denials seriously, and remain unconvinced.

Over the past few days, two separate leaflets signed by Islamic State threatened to target Palestinian poets and writers for their “wantonness” and “atheism.” The leaflets mention the poets and writers by name — a move that created panic among many Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

The leaflets also included an ultimatum to Palestinian women to abide by Islamic attire or face the Islamic State style of punishment — presumably being stoned to death. The threat leaves one with the false impression that, under Hamas, women can wear swimming suits at the beach and walk around the streets of Gaza City in mini-skirts.

But this is what happens when one fundamentalist group believes that the other is not radical enough.

I bet the real Muslims aren’t happy with him

Things are tense enough when it comes to Muslims living in a world where they cop the blame for most of the drama out there.  The last thing they want is some wanna-be Maori boy from Napier calling for an Islamic State in New Zealand.

A Hawke’s Bay Muslim man is calling on “souljahs of Allah” to make their way to Hastings and join him in forming the “Islamic State of Aotearoa”.

Te Amorangi Kireka-Whaanga, of Hastings, who heads the Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association, said in a Facebook post yesterday he had changed the organisation’s name to the Islamic State of Aotearoa.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said Mr Kireka-Whaanga’s Facebook posts were “very concerning,” considering the Islamic State’s violent reputation in the Middle East. Read more »

Send the best John

SAS-Baddass

John Key is suggesting that we could deploy the NZSAS to Iraq in order to protect other troops deployed to Iraq…think about that for a moment.

New Zealand’s elite Special Air Service (SAS) could be deployed to Iraq to protect Kiwi troops sent to train local forces.

Prime Minister John Key confirmed that was one option under consideration as the government continues to weigh up its response to the rise of Islamic State (IS) n Iraq and Syria.

Key announced earlier this month a raft of measures including foreign fighter legislation to crack down on Kiwis wanting to sign up to the IS cause.

He also announced plans to send a contingent of New Zealand soldiers to Iraq to train local forces but ruled out a combat role and said they would be largely confined to the classroom and “behind the perimeter” fence.

Speaking to Fairfax on his way to the G20 summit in Brisbane at the weekend, Key said the Government was still weighing up the shape of its contribution, and said he could not rule out deploying the SAS.
