ISIS set up English speaking recruitment team

Nothing to do with Islam, of course, but ISIS are branching out their customer service reps into English speaking  countries.

The Islamic State has created an English language group of fighters, whose aim is to bring the terrorist organization’s fight to the West. The first step is to send foreign fighters back home after they have completed their training.

The brigade, which is known as the ‘Anwar al-Awlaki Battalion,’ is made up solely of English speaking jihadists. The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) now want to use this group of Islamists to plan and carryout terrorist attacks in English speaking countries. The anti-Islamic State group, Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, made the claims, reported by the International Business Times.

According to the group, which is opposed to IS, the jihadists received their instructions on Thursday to carry out an attack in an English speaking country. Part of the aim of sending militants to Europe and America to carry out attacks, is to try and sway public opinion in the West to stop coalition strikes against IS in Iraq and Syria.

Whether you like it or not, we are at war now.  It won’t be if, it is when we get our turn at the lone wolf gunman nothing to do with Islam event.  

The newly formed English language battalion is named after Anwar al-Awlaki, who was an American born Islamist militant, who died in Yemen after a US drone strike in September 2011. He was responsible for spreading the group’s militant message to European and English-speaking audiences.

Said Kouachi, who was one of the two terrorists involved in this month’s attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, traveled to Yemen and there are unconfirmed reports that he met with al-Awlaki during his time in the Arabian Peninsula.

As you can see, Charlie Hebdo was a random, non-Islam inspired lone wolf gunman thing.   Even so, we need to expect more of them, quite randomly, in Five Eyes and coalition countries.

Just don’t you go blaming Islam though.
