    An SAS officer armed with a shotgun has killed five jihadis during a dawn raid, it has been reported. The intense fire fight was over in just seven seconds, and quickly led to the militant group's surrender of the stronghold. The covert operation took place on an Islamic State outpost in Baghdad, Iraq. Several other terrorists emerged from the building but immediately surrendered and began panicking as two of the bodies didn’t have heads – they thought they were about to be executed.'

  • When Islamic State Came, the Monks Had Just Finished Hiding the Manuscripts

    The first time a band of Islamic State militants “visited” the monks, they presented the monks with a kind of suggestion, in a nonthreatening manner: “Why don’t you become a Muslim?” Already, the four monks at the ancient Syriac Catholic Mar Behnam Monastery in Khidr, Iraq, had felt they were under siege. Ten days earlier, on June 10, 2014, five carloads of militants roared through the peaceful road leading to Mar Behnam, announcing through megaphones that the Islamic State was in control. Not long before that, the Iraqi army had withdrawn from a checkpoint near the monastery, located southeast of...

  • Once Again, Democrats Are Proven Wrong About The Border Crisis…And This Time ISIS Is Involved

    Well, shocker, Democrats are wrong about the border crisis again. It may come as a surprise to these left-wingers, but when there are hordes of people trying to enter the U.S. through our southern border, many of whom are succeeding, terror groups will take notice and draft plans to get their operatives in by similar means. And yes, it appears the Islamic State has arrived in Central America—and I don’t think it’s for some rest and relaxation on the beaches. Luckily, Nicaraguan  Security forces captured them (via Reuters): I’ve been angrily assured that this sort of thing never happens and...

    Burkina Faso: The New Land of Islamic Jihad and Christian Slaughter "The assailants asked the Christians to convert to Islam, but the pastor and the others refused. They ordered them to gather under a tree and took their Bibles and mobile phones. Then they called them, one after the other, behind the church building where they shot them dead." — Local Christian, reported by World Watch Monitor, May 2, 2019.

    A Spanish jihadist cell funded itself through tax fraud on chicken, cheese and chocolate sold in Denmark, according to an investigation published Tuesday led by non-profit European newsroom Correctiv. The cell had raised at least €8 million ($9 million) through the scheme since 2005 and spent it sending 24 Moroccans and two Spaniards to Syria, Mali and Libya to fight for the Islamic State group, said online newspaper El Confidencial, a Correctiv member. […] Through contacts with jihadists in Denmark, the group formed ties with 42 mainly Danish firms and managed to put its members or supporters in senior compnay...

    The Islamic State began as the Organisation of Monotheism and Jihad, created in 1999 by Jordanian career criminal Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Originally the group wanted to overthrow the Jordanian monarchy, but after the American invasion of Iraq, Zarqawi’s goal became igniting a sectarian war between Sunni and Shia Muslims in the Middle East. He went to Iraq in 2003 and launched what was at that time the most violent insurgency in the region’s history. Many name changes later, the late Zarqawi’s group was virtually defeated. In 2010, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—the current emir—recruited former intelligence and military officers from Saddam Hussein’s...

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces said that it had arrested five militants who had been fighting for the Islamic State. It reported that one of these was a 45-year-old man originally from Dublin, Ireland. Two of the other men are from the US, while the other two are from Pakistan.

    ... The more lasting damage will derive from the shoddy, humiliating way Mr. Trump treated the secretary and his generals on such a core military issue as deployments in Syria. Jim Mattis is not some neoconservative bent on staying in Syria for years. He is less hawkish on Syria and Iran than national security adviser John Bolton or Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Yet in deciding to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria, Mr. Trump acted on his own impulses with little more than cursory consultation with his military advisers. Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,...
