POPCORN!!! Al Qaeda suicide bomber takes out ISIS brigade leader

November 24, 2015

satire raccoon excellent

Okay, so I wrote just yesterday that posting was going to be sporadic for a while, but I just cannot let this go by without a hearty “Yeah, baby!”

A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels — the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other.

The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad “Abu Ali” al-Baridi, the shadowy head of the group who went by the nickname “The Uncle.”

Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, quickly took credit, gloating on Twitter about the “heroic” attack.

“The Islamic State [ISIS], that controls the closest area to the Israel border in the Syrian Golan Heights, suffered a severe blow and lost its entire top command in the area in one fell swoop,” noted Alex Fishman, a veteran military correspondent for Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot.

Al Qaeda and ISIS, which broke off from the former group, have made a show of hating each other as each fought for leadership of the jihad against the infidels — essentially everyone who’s not them. Al Qaeda’s allies, the Taliban, even declared a jihad against ISIS, which ISIS reciprocated. I had sometimes wondered if this wasn’t for show, to hide the level of cooperation and fool Western analysts.

But, given this development (and assuming it was really al Nusra), it looks like the spat between them is real — and will only get worse when ISIS inevitably retaliates. This is a culture of honor and shame, and the “Caliph” cannot let this blow to his authority go unavenged.

And I plan to sit back and enjoy the show. smiley popcorn


#ParisAttacks Jihad plotter meets gruesome end, world says “Darn.”

November 20, 2015

Well done, mes amis!

Forgive me for being uncharitable, but the only thing I regret about this is that this savage didn’t spend days dying in agony:

The suspected mastermind of the Paris terror attacks was killed in yesterday’s dramatic police siege on his safe house, prosecutors have confirmed.

Belgian jihadist Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was first hit in the head by a police sniper and then blown to pieces by numerous grenades during the raid in the suburb of Saint-Denis.

His body was so unrecognisable it has taken more than 24 hours for forensic tests to confirm he is now dead using DNA from his saliva.

Paris prosecutors said his body was ‘riddled with bullets’, adding that it was unclear whether Abaaoud had detonated a suicide belt.

Now the French authorities will have to explain how they allowed the known terrorist, who was thought to be in Syria, to operate so freely in their country, killing 129 people in the process.

‘This is a major failing,’ said Roland Jaquard, from the International Observatory for Terrorism.

The deuce you say, Roland.

Reports the day after the shootout said French police (and perhaps military) unloaded about 5,000 rounds at Abaaoud and his suicide-bomber companion. Let no one accuse Paris of “holding back.”

Meanwhile, I’d like to think, but sorely doubt, that our president would take note: this how you deal with jihad-terrorists, not bemoan the lack of a jobs program for them.

PS: I despise Vladimir Putin, but this was a nice gesture on his part.

To defeat ISIS and the jihad, we need a successful climate-change conference. Really.

November 17, 2015
No way!!

Are you nuts??

I’m not sure what’s worse: that some moron could write such a smarmy, morally bankrupt piece of leftist, eco-warrior drivel, or that the author is French:

“However, people forget that the war that’s been declared on us is also psychological. The report released by ISIS to claim the massacre in Paris uses all the tools of conditioning and psychological manipulation: a turning of tables, presenting the Islamic State as a victim instead of an assassin, while promising to continue to spread terror, and criticizing policy makers for creating internal divisions– a criticism intended to bring about self-doubt.

“Our first response should be to understand this psychological tactic, so that we don’t allow them to win. No, we do not have to be guilt-tripped into fighting these barbaric groups that slit throats, rape, torture and kill innocent civilians in the most cowardly ways possible. No, our values are strong enough to refuse to sink to their level, and instead, to turn towards reinforcing national unity against their aggression. No, we do not doubt that enlightenment and democratic progress are strong enough to stand up to such behavior, which is sending us back to prehistoric times. No, we are not afraid, and it’s because we have no doubt that we will continue to live as we choose, and to defend the policies (1) that we believe to be essential.

You can almost see the progressive bogeyman forming in her mind: naturally, anyone advocating a robust, forceful, and yes violent response to ISIS’ massacre of hundred in Paris will, acting out of guilt, inevitably sink to the level of barbarity shown by these jihadist savages. The insulting moral equivalence aside, this is just delusional: modern Western militaries, while deploying awesome power, go out of their way to avoid civilian casualties when at all possible. And to imagine they would “sink to the level” of ISIS is to indulge in leftist fantasy worthy of The New Republic.

But wait! It gets better!

After this fool has warned us against being guilt-tripped into destroying maniacs who had just murdered hundreds (and want to kill far more), she offered up a better solution, one sure to end the jihad once and for all. What this crisis calls for is… (drum roll)

… a successful climate-change conference! We’re saved!!

Amongst these is the climate change issue, which will determine, in the long term, the survival of mankind, and, in the short term, the demographic balance. Because, contrary to what many people would say –especially those who are excited about averting the dangers that an agreement on climate change may pose for them– there are definitely several undeniable links between these barbaric and fascist acts by radical Islamists and the climate.

Lord, where do I begin? I… I can’t even.

Has climate change played a roll in the movement of peoples and been a cause of turmoil? Quite likely. I’m a bit of a geographical determinist when it comes to history and, sure, famine caused by a lack of rain could lead one group of people to attack another in order to take their more fertile land. I won’t claim that hasn’t ever happened.

But, not only is it cynically, foully exploitive of this former environment minister to use the atrocities in Paris to pump up the climate conference scheduled to take place there soon, but it ignores the far more real reason (2):

The attacks were the result of Muslims choosing to wage jihad against non-believers —as their religion demands— in return for great rewards (including sexual) when they reach Paradise, and not in some “acting out” against an imaginary carbon-dioxide demon.

Really, just how soul-dead and ideologically botoxed do you have to be to see hundreds of your countrymen murdered and think “I can use this to rally people to my fading cause and use it to boost my statist agenda!”

I’m surprised she isn’t a Bernie Sanders adviser.

(1) By the way, one means to spot the statist is when they prattle on about “defending policies,” not their country or their people or their civilization. Government is all that counts, baby.
(2) Come on, you all know what I think about anthropogenic climate change.



Payback: France bombs Raqqa, ISIS’ “capital.”

November 15, 2015

La guerre commence.

After the jihadist atrocities in Paris last Friday, French President Hollande promised retribution: “pitiless war” was the term he used.

Today France began to make good on his promise:

French fighter jets bombed a series of ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria, on Sunday in what officials described as a major bombardment.

The airstrikes came two days after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which France’s President described as “an act of war.”

ISIS claims Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate. The targets in Sunday’s airstrikes included a command center, a recruitment center, an ammunition storage base and a training camp for the terror group, said Mickael Soria, press adviser for France’s defense minister.

Twelve aircraft, including 10 fighter jets, were involved in the airstrikes, Soria said. Twenty bombs were dropped, he said, and all of the targets were destroyed.

An ISIS media wing claimed the sites had been abandoned before they were hit and said there were no casualties.

Good. And I hope a large number of those brave knights of Islam were killed in the process. Even more, I hope this is just the start. Not just a raid or two, but boots on the ground with the mission to destroy these monsters, to hunt them down and kill them all. For the dead of Paris, for all those slaughtered by ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and for the women sold into slavery. No more gestures, no more light shows, no more marches “in solidarity,” for real solidarity now means picking up a gun.

ISIS delenda est.

I just wish our president would see fit to get involved in more than the pathetic, diffident manner he’s chosen so far.

Massacre in the City of Lights as the jihad comes to Paris. Update: deaths near 100

November 13, 2015

Vive la France!

Damn these monsters to Hell:

Paris is gripped by terror tonight as multiple, apparently coordinated attacks have unfolded in the French capital.

As many as a dozen people were killed as multiple gunmen opened fire on a busy restaurant in Paris: Le Petit Cambodge, a popular Cambodian eatery at Rue Ailbert and Rue Bichat. A witness who was at the restaurant, which was crowded on a Friday night, told FRANCE24 that she heard about 25-30 shots.

There were also two explosions, perhaps grenades, just outside of the national stadium.

French President Francois Hollande was reportedly attending a soccer match between France and Germany at the Stade de France when the attacks occurred, and was evacuated safely. Hollande and the interior minister were coming together in an emergency meeting.

French TV is reporting that hostages have been taken at the Bataclan concert venue. There are also reported fatalities at the location.

Jihadis online are celebrating on Twitter under the hashtag #FranceUnderAttack.

Per a more recent update, the death toll has climbed to at least 40 as security forces deal with the emergency and try to rescue hostages.

France has declared martial law in Paris and sealed the country’s borders.

Memories are evoked of the Mumbai jihad atrocities of 2008.

Godspeed to the people of Paris and the security forces now in battle, and may France’s just retaliation be swift, devastating, and merciless.

This is war, not a police matter.

UPDATE: The death toll is climbing.

Agence France-Presse is reporting “around 100″ dead in the Bataclan concert venue at the conclusion of the hostage standoff.

President Obama issued a statement including the usual boilerplate about “bringing the perpetrators to justice.” There is only one justice that fits here, Mr. President, and it’s not a court of law:

Hunt them down and kill them all.

(Video) Such lovely people. Let’s give them their own state, shall we?

If you ever wonder why the Palestinians aren’t fit to join the community of nations, just watch what their elites say on their television channels.

The first video is from the invaluable MEMRI. In it, a Dean of Quranic Studies at Gaza University, in other words, an expert on just what is and is not permissible in Islam, declares openly that is is halal (permitted) to kill Jewish women and children:

And yet some people have been surprised by the spate of knife attacks against Israelis.

Next is Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi, who teaches Islam twice a week at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, one of the holiest sites in Islam. In other words, his words carry some weight with believers. Per PalWatch, the Sheikh has a message for us: That the end of days cannot come until the Jews build a temple to the Devil inside the mosque, at which point the Muslims will kill all the Jews.

Are we all clear on that, now?

The only difference between the Palestinian elites and the ISIS leadership in one of degree, not of kind.

ISIS slashes their fighters’ paychecks

October 7, 2015

Phineas Fahrquar:

It’s hard for me to imagine they’re hurting financially, with the oil revenues and money from artifact-smuggling they receive. If they are dealing with a “labor glut,” that would be… worrisome.

Originally posted on Money Jihad:

The Islamic State of Iraq has cut the wages for jihadists from about $400 to $100.  Is it a sign that ISIS is struggling financially, or is it an indication that they’re able to cut wages and still attract volunteers?  It’s unclear from this report from the Mirror whether ISIS is able to replenish the fighters that have left for Syria in search of better wages.  Hat tip to Shariah Finance Watch:

Hundreds of Isis killers give up terrorism after chiefs cut pay by £200 a month

Hundreds of Islamic State terror fighters are deserting the cause – after their wages were slashed. 

The killers were on £260 a month until cash shortages forced the lower rate of £65…
