On the day marking the second anniversary of the establishment of the self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate, ISIS released another of their propagandist high-quality short films.

In the 18 minute long video, ISIS issued a “bayan” re-branding the terrorist group’s name from the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham to the Islamic State thereby requesting “baya’a”, or allegiance pledges”, from Muslims living in Arab countries. Showing audiotapes from Jihadist leaders pledging allegiance from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, and Algeria, ISIS declared war on all Arab states encouraging followers to fight against the governments ruling their respective countries.

Throughout this video, ISIS’s Aleppo media branch attempted to portray civil life in areas governed by the terror group showing people leading normal lives in markets, streets, and mosques whilst praising the resilience of the civilians resisting the “crusader airstrikes.” ISIS also claimed to have set up a system of self-sufficiency and welfare asserting that poverty levels in the caliphate are steadily decreasing – in what seems to be an attempt to shrink the outflaw of civilians living under the governance of the caliphate – and that people are governing pious and ordinary lives.

After a steady string of defeats in Syria, Iraq, and Libya, ISIS is desperately attempting to render to the public and its supporters worldwide the image of strength, fearlessness, and resolve it has always attempted to maintain. Increasingly desperate, ISIS has called upon its followers globally to carry out terrorist attacks. Though ISIS specifically called for war against Arab governments in this publication, it remains unclear whether terror attacks will escalate in the mentioned Arab countries.

Well, if such attacks in all countries are done, in a certain way, it can even be good as it will motivate these countries in helping to definitively end Da’esh for good and to bann any wahhabi/salafi preachers, crack on any sleeper-cell, watch the books in mosquee (25% of UK’s mosquees had children-books with wahhabi/salafi hate speech in! And written in english to target the non-arab readers! These were mostly printed in KSA or Qatar and distributed for free… These were designed to look innocent and sot, not being reviewed fully as generally, adults don’t really take care of children… Read more »

It took around 150 years to expell the crusaders and in fact, it was because a greedy king came to power in France and seized all the money and goods of the templar knights (and burned their master -Jacques de Molay- at the stake, BTW). Being broke, they couldn’t pay their soldiers etc, so Salahudin took advantage as only the much less powerfull hospital-knights were left… Anyway, from the military POV, it’s a great honour to be considered a crusader : they had (well, not all) great morality and honour, were kind to the locals and the prisoners and -normally-… Read more »

A little REALITY : a Daeshbag captured by iraqi army… Very graphic, you’re warned : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMT3HcZEjOQ Some others : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEC1BBNz_vU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEC1BBNz_vU Muricans are nicer with a recruiter in the US : Only 22y6months in federal prison and 50 years close monitoring : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hD4CQByhOM He’ll be around 54/55 when out… And he can be sure to have a sat-shackle to his leg till the end… If he doesn’t commit suicide or gets killed in jail. Sure he’ll soon become gay, wanting or not… In other times, as US are at war against Daesh, he could have been judged for high treason… Read more »
