FOREWARD: Does no one else find it interesting, that ISIS/ISIL/Daesch exploded onto the scene during the Obama administration, then was wiped out during the Trump Administration, and now that Biden and his cronies have completely destroyed the American Economy, our global status and sovereignty, inundated our nation with illegal voters and fentanyl, attempted to normalize child mutilation and rape trafficking, gotten us into yet another unwinnable proxy war (Ukraine) in order to make the Military-Industrial Complex even richer, and is about to lose his second election in a row, now all of the sudden - with no Antifa backing or global pandemic to hide behind - suddenly right on cue, here comes ISIS back again and stronger than ever...

Islamic State (IS) (also known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Or Daesh. (ISIS)[1] or 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL), is a terrorist organization that operates in Iraq and Syria. Founded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, it grew out of al Qaeda in Iraq.[2]

In February 2012 NSC staffer Jake Sullivan informed Hillary Clinton that "Al Qaeda is on our side" in the plot to take down Syrian leader Bashar al Assad. Reuters reported on August 1, 2012 that Barack Obama signed a Presidential Finding earlier that same year authorizing transfer of captured weapons from Libya to groups in Syria that later became known as the Islamic State.[3] The Defense Intelligence Agency under Gen. Michael T. Flynn warned 12 days later that Western powers and their Salafi allies wanted to create an Islamic State.[4][5] Flynn was later fired for his opposition to Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Brennan's policy to arm Islamic State militants.[6] After the Islamic State went on a relentless rampage of murder and beheadings, Gen. Flynn was mercilessly pursued by Obama and Clinton holdovers in the U.S. government to keep him silent.[7]

Vice president Joe Biden admitted in 2014 that Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar and Turkey had funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Islamist rebels in Syria. Biden was forced to retract that statement.[8] The U.S. did precisely the same thing in terms of supplying and facilitating the Syrian opposition. Obama had requested $500 million to train fighters opposed to ISIS. In August, the Pentagon announced it would defend those forces from attacks by the Syrian government.[9]

Turkey's president Erdogan has good relations with Barack Obama and they both supported Assad's ouster from Syria. Turkey is a major transit point for both foreign fighters and weapons, which makes both presidents complicit in the failure to stop fighters from joining ISIS ranks. Ramzan Kadyrov, (Chechnya), 38, said the U.S. secretly controls the Islamic State.[10]

ISIS attacks Shiite Muslims, the Iraqi Army and Kurdish Peshmerga troops, and non-Muslims[11] Even bin Laden successor Ayman al-Zawahiri condemned the Islamic State as "extremists".[12]The goal of ISIS is to reestablish an Islamic Caliphate.[13] By March 2019, the Islamic State had lost all the territory it had conquered. Many former ISIS members have returned to their countries of origin without facing any consequences.[14] Its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by U.S. forces in October 2019.[15]


In 2023, in groundbreaking ruling, Middle Eastern Islamic council declared ‘fatwa’, Hamas joins the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, other extreme groups as being deemed ‘un-Islamic'.[17]

Syria and Iraq

ISIS, among others have also been fighting in the Syrian Civil War against Bashar al-Assad and is known for killing Christians in Syria. Though the Syrian dictator himself, oppresses all his people. An estimated 5,000 Yazidis have been killed by ISIS in a genocide.[18][19]

Yet, the Assad regime itself also aided ISIS.[20]

In 2014 IS took control of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah and Mosul. Since then Christians in Mosul have to pay "Protection taxes" for their faith.[21] In 2015 IS defeated Iraqi troops and seized the city of Ramadi. IS now controls all the border areas between Syria and Iraqi.

President Barack Obama signed a Presidential Finding on August 1, 2012 authorizing transfer of captured weapons from Libya to groups that became the Islamic State.[3] Reuters reported

under provisions of the presidential finding, the United States was collaborating with a secret command center operated by Turkey and its allies.

Last week, Reuters reported that, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey had established a secret base near the Syrian border to help direct vital military and communications support to Assad’s opponents.

This “nerve center” is in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 60 miles (100 km) from the Syrian border, which is also home to Incirlik, a U.S. air base where U.S. military and intelligence agencies maintain a substantial presence.

Turkey’s moderate Islamist government has been demanding Assad’s departure with growing vehemence. Turkish authorities are said by current and former U.S. government officials to be increasingly involved in providing Syrian rebels with training and possibly equipment.

European government sources said wealthy families in Saudi Arabia and Qatar were providing significant financing to the rebels. Senior officials of the Saudi and Qatari governments have publicly called for Assad’s departure.

The Guardian reported,[126]

...these were not average members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.

They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags” ...

...[they] are working closely with the military council that commands the Free Syrian Army brigades in the region. “We meet almost every day,” he said. “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaida] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations” ...

“The FSA lacks the ability to plan and lacks military experience. That is what [al-Qaida] can bring. ...

“In the beginning there were very few. Now, mashallah, there are immigrants joining us and bringing their experience,” he told the gathered people. “Men from Yemen, Saudi, Iraq and Jordan...

[Al-Qaida’s] goal is establishing an Islamic state and not a Syrian state,” he replied. “Those who fear the organisation fear the implementation of Allah’s jurisdiction...

The New York Times reported David Petraeus had been instrumental in helping to get an aviation network moving to supply ISIS rebels and prodded various countries to work together on it. Three Royal Jordanian Air Force C-130s landed in Esenboga, in a hint at what would become a stepped-up Jordanian and Saudi role. “Within three weeks, two other Jordanian cargo planes began making a round-trip run between Amman, the capital of Jordan, and Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, where, officials from several countries said, the aircraft were picking up a large Saudi purchase of infantry arms from a Croatian-controlled stockpile." Two Jordanian Ilyushins bearing the logo of the Jordanian International Air Cargo firm but flying under Jordanian military call signs made a combined 36 round-trip flights between Amman and Croatia from December 2012 through February 2013. The same two planes made five flights between Amman and Turkey in January 2013. "As the Jordanian flights were under way, the Qatari flights continued and the Royal Saudi Air Force began a busy schedule, too — making at least 30 C-130 flights into Esenboga from mid-February 2013 to early March 2013, according to flight data provided by a regional air traffic control official.” American officials have confirmed that senior White House officials were regularly briefed on the shipments.”[127]

Edward Snowden leaked detail a program that trained approximately 10,000 rebel fighters at a cost of $1 billion a year[128]

  • Ruth Marks Eglash, In groundbreaking ruling, Middle Eastern Islamic council declares ‘fatwa’ against Hamas, Fox News, March 12, 2023.

    Hamas joins the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, other extreme groups as being deemed ‘un-Islamic'.

    In a groundbreaking ruling, an official Islamic legislative body based in the Arab world declared a "fatwa," or a legal opinion, against the Islamist militant group Hamas Thursday, calling its treatment of millions of Palestinians living under its rule in the Gaza Strip "inhumane" and urging the terrorist organization and its followers to immediately give up arms, sit down and make peace.

    The unprecedented declaration, published by the Islamic Fatwa Council, a non-government body of Shiite, Sunni and Sufi clerics headquartered in the Iraqi spiritual capital of Najaf, states that Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, "bears responsibility for its own reign of corruption and terror against Palestinian civilians within Gaza" and deems "it prohibited to pray for, join, support, finance or fight on behalf of Hamas."

    "As an Islamic legal body, we take note of the condition of the oppressed all over the world," Muhammad Ali Al-Maqdisi, a cleric for the council, said in a video statement shared with Fox News Digital. 

    "We have seen what Gaza has been subjected to under Hamas’ rule. We have also seen the atrocities which, in our view, have been perpetrated against Palestinians — faithful and unarmed civilians — who have neither strength nor recourse. And, so, we believed it was our Islamic obligation to aid the oppressed.

  • America's Muslims object to Obama's push for more self-surveillance, Reuters, Dec 8 , 2015.
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama’s request to American Muslims that they must help “root out” extremists in their midst received an angry response inside mosques in a part of California where four men were recently arrested for conspiring to aid Islamist militants.

    At the West Coast Islamic Society in Anaheim, southern California, where two 24-year-old men arrested in May accused of conspiring to aid Islamic State had worshipped, the message was clear: there is no trust of the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the U.S. government.

    Imams and workers at mosques also described the arrested Islamic State sympathizers as victims of over-zealous law enforcement, illustrating the difficulty the Obama administration may face in convincing some Muslim leaders to identify and report radicals in their midst to U.S. authorities.

    They said they found Obama’s request insulting, with some questioning why the same message is not sent to Christian churches after mass shootings carried out by non-Muslims.

    “It is unfair to speak about the Muslim community in this way,” said Moustafa Kamel, the imam of the West Coast Islamic Center. An immigrant from Egypt 13 years ago, Kamel added, “there is a lot of suspicion of the FBI here.”

    Obama’s call for greater self-policing of America’s 2.8 million Muslims, made in a rare Oval Office address on Sunday, was followed by a similar appeal from Jeh Johnson, his Homeland Security chief, at a Virginia mosque on Monday. Johnson called it an “ask” of Muslim communities.

    Obama and Johnson made their appeals after last week’s massacre of 14 people in San Bernardino, California, by a U.S.-born Muslim man and his wife, a Pakistani national.

    The FBI said the two had long been radicalized and conspired to commit terrorism without detection, underlining the challenge of finding so-called homegrown, self-radicalized extremists inspired by Islamic State propaganda.


    Kamel’s mosque is where Muhanad Badawi and Nader Elhuzayel, both 24, had occasionally worshipped in the months before the FBI arrested them in May on charges of conspiring to join IS overseas.

    According to an FBI affidavit in support of the arrests, the men drew the attention of authorities with inflammatory comments on social media, especially their Twitter and Facebook accounts. According to the FBI, the men professed support for Islamic State and their desire to die as martyrs on the battlefield.

    The FBI also wire-tapped their phone conversations. In one, the two discussed where they would like to die as martyrs, and both agreed on Syria. In March 2015, according to the FBI affidavit, Elhuzayel was introduced online to a woman in Palestine who professed support for Islamic State. They discussed getting married.

    On May 21, Elhuzayel was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport, about to board a flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, with a layover in Istanbul, Turkey. According to the FBI, after his arrest, he admitted he had intended to travel to Turkey to join and fight for the Islamic State.

    Badawi is accused of purchasing Elhuzayel’s plane ticket, using his credit card on the travel website Orbitz. Badawi was arrested in Anaheim the same day. Both men are being held without bond. They pleaded not guilty at a hearing in June. Their trial is set for June next year.

    Taher Herzallaj, the manager at the West Coast Islamic Center, read through the FBI affidavit against Badawi and Elhuzayel, and questioned why they were arrested.

    “They have not said anything here about attacking America or being a threat to U.S. national security,” he said. “My guess is they were trying to join ISIS to do something for Syria,” he added, using another acronym for Islamic State.

    Herzallaj added: “There is no trust of the FBI here. They spy on us. We feel like we are always under surveillance. And out of all the hundreds of mass shootings, I don’t see Obama talking to the Christian communities about them. It’s insulting he would say that.”

    The arrests in Anaheim followed the conviction in March of two other southern California men for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. They had been arrested as they were about to travel to Afghanistan. In April, six Somali Americans were arrested in San Diego and Minneapolis, accused of trying to travel to Syria to join Islamic State.

    At the Islamic Institute of Orange County, in Anaheim - a city which has a neighborhood called “Little Arabia” - the mosque’s imam, Mohammed Faqih, chafes at Obama’s request that mosques could do more to root out extremists.

    “I didn’t like that,” Faqih said. “In these cases such as San Bernardino, the mosques did not play a role. They are loners who got radicalized at home, in front of the Internet. If we suspect anybody, we call it in straight away to the FBI.”

    Shakeel Syed, executive director of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, questioned why American leaders did not go on television asking Christian churches to police themselves for white supremacists after the shooting of nine African-Americans in Charleston, South Carolina in June.

    “Asking Muslims to do this is offensive. There is a collective responsibility to address this,” he said.

    But Abdallah Soueidan, owner of Al Amir restaurant in Anaheim and an immigrant from Lebanon, said he welcomed Obama’s comments. “We must be more vigilant. And I wouldn’t be surprised, or upset, if we came under more surveillance.”

    DENVER (KDVR) — An 18-year-old man was arrested at Denver International Airport on Friday for his alleged connection to a known foreign terrorist group, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado said Monday.

    Davin Daniel Meyer was charged with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He made his first court appearance on Monday, according to the release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado.

    “According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Meyer pledged an oath of allegiance to the leader of ISIS and intended to travel to serve as a fighter for ISIS in Iraq,” the release said.

    The FBI Denver field office, along with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, is investigating the case.

    Someone who knew Meyer contacted the Doug Co Sheriff’s Office in June 2022 to alert them of their concern for Meyer’s behavior, an arrest warrant read.

    Between then and November, the FBI and the sheriff’s office communicated with the person who contacted them. That person told investigators that Meyer used to be a white supremacist but began practicing Islam, possibly as early as October 2020.

    The individual told investigators that Meyer had begun watching radical online content and became even more involved after attending an “eight-month-long camp between 2021 and 2022 that focused on mental health and behavior treatment,” the affidavit said.

    The person said Meyer talked about traveling to Syria to fight and was willing to kill himself and others.

    “In October 2022, the individual informed the FBI that MEYER had stated that if he could not go to the Middle East, he planned to get fertilizer and build a bomb in the United States,” the affidavit read.

    The document said Meyer had received mental health treatment including residential treatment programs. Staff members reported that Meyer refused medication citing his religious beliefs and that he was diagnosed with “autism spectrum disorder; attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder; adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood; specific learning disorder with impairment in mathematics; and major depressive disorder, recurrent episode, moderate.”

    Meyer had issue with local mosque One investigator believed that Meyer followed the ideology of ISIS and Sunni extremist groups, the affidavit read.

    Meyer reached out to a local mosque that allegedly did not allow radical sects to worship there, about his disdain that women are allowed there. The mosque replied to him that he had violated a code of conduct and issued him a warning…

  • Slaughtered in their beds - Indictment describes: This is how Yehuda and Tamar Kaduri and Ivan Tarnowski were murdered, Rotter, Apr 18, 2022.

    Notice from the State Attorney's Office:

    The Jerusalem District Attorney's Office (Criminal) filed an indictment in the city district court against Wasim Assayed (34), a resident of Hebron, for three terrorist attacks in which he killed three people and tried to kill two more and injured them, all for nationalist motives and being a member of the ISIS terrorist organization.

    In 2014, the defendant swore allegiance to the terrorist organization ISIS.

    On January 8, 2019, the defendant entered Israeli territory carrying two knives in order to kill Jews out of a nationalist and ideological motive.

    According to the indictment, filed by attorneys Erez Padan and Yuval Kedar of the Jerusalem District Attorney's Office, the defendant arrived in Jerusalem in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood and wandered the neighborhood streets with the intent to locate a Jewish victim and murder him. Defendant spotted a girl walking down the street and began to follow her quickly as he skipped up the stairs. When he got her, he pulled out the knife and started stabbing her in the neck and trying to slash it. The girl cried out in pain and the defendant fled the scene quickly. A day after the assassination attempt, the defendant once again returned to the scene with the intent to kill Jews.

    At around 21:30 in the evening, the defendant noticed Yehuda Kadouri wearing a skullcap, getting out of the vehicle while driving, unpacking bags of groceries and walking towards the apartment. Defendant followed Yehuda Kadouri some distance, followed him into the building and followed him while watching his actions as he entered the apartment. Shortly afterwards, Yehuda Kadouri left the apartment and returned to his car. Defendant saw this, opened the apartment door and entered it. The defendant moved between the rooms in the apartment and found Tamar Kadouri in her bed in the bedroom where he stabbed her in the neck several times until her death. The defendant hid in one of the rooms in the apartment while waiting for the return of Yehuda Kadouri in order to kill him and surprised him at the door. Defendant stabbed him until he collapsed and passed away.

    After the murder of the Kadouri couple, in the morning the defendant left the apartment taking several rings from the deceased's room worth thousands of new shekels, as well as cash from the deceased's wallet.

    The indictment further states that in March 2022 the defendant entered Israel with the aim of killing Jews while carrying a bag containing barbed wire, an electric shocker with a flashlight, pepper spray, and a knife with a blade about 15 cm long and wearing gloves on his hands. The defendant climbed the separation fence between A-Ram and Beit Hanina and entered Israel, with his face to the city of Jerusalem.

    The defendant arrived late at night in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood, wandered the streets of the neighborhood with the intention of locating a Jewish victim and murdering him out of a nationalist and ideological motive. The defendant entered a building in the neighborhood and opened the front door to one of the apartments in the building holding the knife in one hand and the shocker in the other. The defendant noticed Ivan Tarnowski (a Moldovan citizen) and two other people sleeping in their beds. Since he believed they were Jews and according to his early plan, the defendant went to Ivan's bed and stabbed him while he was sleeping with the knife a deep stab in the neck. The defendant then turned to the extra bed that was in the room and began stabbing the other person as well with a deep stab in the neck. Ivan got out of bed and stood in the room and the defendant fled the apartment quickly, with the deceased leaving the apartment following him. The defendant fled the building and the deceased returned to the apartment and collapsed in the doorway of the room where he inflated his soul.

    The indictment attributes to the defendant the commission of aggravated murder offenses, an act of terrorism of attempted murder, an act of terrorism of aggravated sabotage and injury, membership in a terrorist organization and other offenses.

    Please note that the prosecution requested that the publication of a few details of the indictment be prohibited in order to maintain the dignity and privacy of the deceased.

    Wassim Assayed, a Palestinian resident of Hebron, was arrested between 2018-2015 for ISIS activity. A few months after his release he was arrested again for incitement and membership in the organization, and sent to prison for two and a half years. He was released about a month ago and immediately committed another murder. "I decided to murder Jews for myself and for Allah," he said during his interrogation.

    The suspect in a number of murders and attempted murders in Jerusalem is Wassim Assayed, an ISIS terrorist who has been arrested and released several times, and has acted for nationalist motives. His investigation revealed that he was looking for his victims at random, and set himself the goal of murdering Jews in the belief that this would advance ISIS 'aspirations and ideology.

    Assayed, a 34-year-old Palestinian resident of Hebron, is described as an indifferent, secretive and strict. During his interrogation, he said, "I did not tell anyone, that was my secret. I decided to murder Jews for me and for Allah."

    Assayed was banned between 2015 and 2018 due to activity in the ISIS infrastructure that planned to carry out attacks against Israeli targets. After his release from prison in Israel, he was detained by the Palestinian Authority for several months, and in January 2019 he was arrested again in Israel. He was prosecuted for incitement and membership in a hostile organization. At the end of the prison term - he was transferred to a long administrative detention of about two and a half years from which he was recently released.

    Wassim Assayed, who confessed to the murder of the couple in Jerusalem, has been imprisoned in Israel on various occasions since 2007. At first these were minor offenses, but later he was sent to administrative detention: "the only means of thwarting danger on his part." In 2011 he was marked as "determined and daring", in prison he was separated due to his extremist views: "Attack other prisoners."

    Wassim Assayed, a terrorist from Hebron who was arrested on suspicion of murdering the Kadouri couple in 2019 and on suspicion of murdering Moldovan citizen Ivan Tarnowski in Jerusalem about a month ago, is an ISIS supporter who became involved in crime in Israel in 2007. The 34-year-old terrorist was imprisoned on several occasions His administrative detention - is considered a dangerous detainee...

    Assayed, according to the interpretation of the murder case, as a way of his "work," was looking for victims who looked like Jews.

  • Two deadly ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks carried out in southern and central Israel, Terrorism-Info, 31/03/2022.
    On March 22 and 27, 2022, two deadly terrorist attacks were carried out, one in Beersheba, in southern Israel, and one in Hadera, in the country’s center. So far it is unclear if they were connected. Four Israelis were killed in Beersheba and two were wounded. In Hadera two Israelis were killed and five were wounded. The following are some of the details of the attacks:

    Both were carried out in cifty centers and targeted innocent passersby.

    The terrorists who carried out the attacks were Israeli Arabs from Hura (Beersheba) and Umm al-Fahm (Hadera), and were ISIS sympathizers. At least two of them tried to go to Syria to fight in the ranks of ISIS and served sentences in Israeli jails. However, a preliminary investigation revealed a local ISIS network with no direct connection between the terrorists and ISIS headquarters.

    ISIS issued an official claim of responsibility for the attack in Hadera. It mentioned the attack in Beersheba although no separate claim of responsibility was issued. The attack in Hadera was one of the few instances in which ISIS claimed responsibility for a terrorist attack inside Israel.

    In both instances the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership did not issue an official statement. Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and other terrorist organizations were quick to praise the attacks and attackers, even though they were affiliated with ISIS. Hezbollah, which sent its operatives to fight ISIS in Syria, also welcomed the attacks. In the Gaza Strip, pastries and candy were distributed to passersby.

    The attack in Beersheba was carried out by one terrorist who used his vehicle and a knife. The attack in Hadera was more complex and had to have been pre-planned, possibly with the involvement of others. It was carried out by two terrorists who acquired guns, issued a video before the attack and arrived by car.

  • Umm al-Fahm municipality issued a condolence message to the families of the two terrorists who carried out the attack in Hadera, Rotter, March 31, 2022.

    Umm al-Fahm municipality issued a condolence message to the families of the two terrorists who carried out the attack in Hadera Translation of the message:

    • Binding condolences *

    On my behalf and on behalf of the members and employees of the Umm al-Fahm Municipality and the people of the city, we send our sincere condolences and our heartfelt condolences to our family in the Bashir family and to the whole family, on the passing of the deceased: Ayman Bashir Ighbariah Ibrahim Hassan Bashir Ighbariah. May Allah have mercy on them and forgive them and inspire patience and comfort in their families We belong to Allah and we will return to Him Dr. .. Samir Subhi

    Mayor of Umm al-Fahm
  • The Umm al-Fahm post of condolences to the families of the terrorists was removed only after the intervention of the Ministry of the Interior, which is currently content with a statement of condemnation. Rotter, 31.03.22:


    By order of the Minister of the Interior, the Director General of the Ministry of the Interior called the mayor of Umm al-Fahm and asked him to remove the post. The post has been removed.

    It is inconceivable that a municipality in the State of Israel would console families of terrorists. This is a serious and shameful post and it is good that it has been deleted.

    The Interior Minister will continue to show zero tolerance for supporting terrorism on social networks and in general.
  • The ISIS Organization calls to his loyalists in "Palestine" to carry out attacks, Rotter News, Apr 1, 2022.
    The ISIS Da'ash organization dedicates his weekly newspaper of honor for the terrorist attacks in Israel. They earn the main page and an article on the internal page, as well as disclosure of the organization against the "false nationalism" and calls for its people to act according to Islam which overpowers nationalism (Palestinian). In the declaration of the organization, the organization refers to a special call to its loyalists in the "Palestinian and its environs" in which he calls them to get up, to fix their way, release themselves from the false nationalism and fill the fatwah of cleansing the world from the infidels and the heresy. This is a religious call for terrorist attacks in "Palestinian territories."
  • roi kais • روعي كايس • רועי קייס (@kaisos1987) Tweeted (Apr 1, 2022):
    In addition, an article was published in the ISIS weekly dedicated to the attack in Hadera under the headline "Our campaign with the Jews is a pure Islamic campaign." The article is the organization's defense letter for the claim that it does not fight Jews enough and criticism of the Palestinian terrorist organizations that are fighting in Israel in the name of national and non-religious motives.
  • Daniel Greenfield,, Will Biden fund ISIS in (Arab Islamists in) Israel to aid the Palestinians?, JNS, March 29, 2022.

    The "Palestinian people" have spoken. Will Biden listen to them?

    "In the name of Allah, the merciful and compassionate," said Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, “we would like to welcome Secretary Clinton.” “Blinken,” someone corrected him.

    “Sorry, Blinken,” said the 86-year-old Islamic terrorist leader.

    U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken had to travel thousands of miles to find a leader even more unpopular and out of it than the one he had left behind at the White House. That was last year. This year, Abbas got Blinken’s name right, but not much else.

    In 17 years (and just one election), Abbas has seen a lot of secretaries of state come and go to get their pictures taken with him before sending him a few hundred million dollars.

    Last year, Abbas told Blinken that he had “postponed the elections” because of Israel and that the moment he gets his paws on Jerusalem, “we will hold them immediately and without any delay, because ultimately what we’re interested in is to establish democracy throughout Palestine.” This year they can’t be held either, because Abbas still doesn’t have Jerusalem.

    The last Palestinian Authority presidential election was in 2005. Abbas won. The last parliamentary election was in 2006. Hamas won. The presidential and parliamentary elections have been postponed since then but are expected to resume any time now. If not, blame Israel.

    Since elections won’t be happening anytime soon, a recent poll reveals that 73% of the “Palestinians” occupying the West Bank and Gaza Strip want Abbas to resign. If elections were somehow held today, the Hamas presidential candidate would win 54% of the vote while Abbas would only get 38%. So you can see why there will be no elections.

    Sixty-one percent want to tear up all agreements with Israel (since they haven’t kept them, that would be a technicality), 70% don’t want to negotiate with Israel and 64% don’t even want to negotiate with Biden. Fifty-eight percent oppose the “two-state solution” that is the touchstone of the entire peace process.

    Seventy-three percent believe that the Koran predicts that Israel will be destroyed, but only 32% believe it will happen in 2022. Under these circumstances, the last thing the Biden administration wants is democracy for the quarreling foreign jihadist tribes who invaded Israel over the last few centuries and were rebranded with the name of the European colonists known as the Philistines.

    Blinken is fine with Abbas postponing the elections forever, because otherwise the terror clans will do what they did the last time that Bush naively allowed elections and vote for Hamas.

    And that would be inconvenient because Hamas won’t pretend that they aren’t terrorists.

    Four Israelis were murdered last week by a Muslim terrorist attack at a mall in Beersheva.

    Despite  the terrorist’s Islamic State membership, a Hamas spokesman praised “the executor of the heroic operation” and promised more “heroic operations: stabbings, ramming and shooting” like the car-ramming and stabbing spree that killed a rabbi who ran a soup kitchen and two mothers of three. So much for the claim that Hamas will inhibit the rise of the “extremists” of ISIS. P.A. media also hailed the terrorist, Muhammad Abu al-Kiyan, who was shot and killed by an Israeli bus driver who chased him down on foot, as a “martyr.” If the P.A. follows its usual “Pay to Slay” policy in this case, it won’t just be financially supporting the usual stable of PLO, Hamas and Islamic Jihad families, but also an ISIS terrorist’s family.

    And that will mean American taxpayers will end up subsidizing ISIS terrorism in Israel, as the Biden administration explores ways to bypass the Taylor Force Act’s ban on terror funding.

    At a joint press conference on Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Blinken gave a speech mostly blaming Israel for future violence during Passover and Ramadan. That speech was followed by another ISIS attack in which two heavily armed terrorists opened fire on a bus. The Islamic terrorists were taken down by cops who had been eating nearby, but not before they killed two officers.

    Hamas celebrated the “valor and courage” of the ISIS terrorists, as did Islamic Jihad. Hezbollah, backed by Iran,  praised the ISIS attack as an “important and most effective practical response to the infamous and treacherous normalization meetings that some Arab regimes are carrying out with the enemy entity,” referring to the anti-Iran summit in Israel with the foreign ministers of Bahrain, UAE, Morocco and Egypt.

    Iran’s pro-Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps outlet, too, praised it as a “martyrdom operation.” When it comes to Israel, Iran and ISIS are on the same side. Much as Al-Qaeda and Iran were on the same side when it came to the terrorist attacks of September 11.

    Blinken meanwhile used the visit to pitch Israelis on a Biden plan to remove the IRGC, Iran’s terror hub, from the list of foreign terrorist organizations, claiming it would be “symbolic.”

    He failed to condemn the terrorist attack as an ISIS attack, calling it “senseless” violence.

    At his joint press conference with Abbas, Blinken also failed to condemn terrorism or to note that ISIS, with the tacit support of his PLO hosts in Ramallah and of Hamas in Gaza, was planting its flag in Israel. Instead, Blinken once again condemned Jewish Israeli “settler violence.”

    Like Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland’s previous visit, the formula of Biden administration officials condemning Israeli “settler violence” while promising to “strengthen” the terrorists of the P.A. is as familiar as it is evil. The P.A. is an unwanted institution whose leader 73% of the people he rules over want to see out of office. And 49% want to dissolve the Palestinian Authority.

    Considering the decades of failure, misery and terrorism wrought by the failed Clinton initiative to create a Palestinian state, it’s long past time for everyone to turn the page on this disaster.

    Neither Arab Muslims nor Israelis want Abbas or the P.A. Only diplomats like Blinken and Nuland insist on keeping the senile tyrant of Ramallah in office until he dies.

    In a final statistic, the poll asked who was “most deserving of representing and leading the Palestinian people.” Thirty-one percent picked Hamas, 29% chose Abbas’ P.A., and 33% chose none of the above. Eighty-four percent believe the P.A. is corrupt and 70% believe Hamas is dirty. The “Palestinian people” have spoken. Will Biden listen to them?

    The root source of the corruption is the hundreds of millions of dollars Blinken came bearing last year for the regime of a corrupt, senile autocrat who didn’t even know whom he was talking to. There’s more money coming this year to prop up the terrorist regime.

    All in the name of a peace which doesn’t exist and that the majority of “Palestinians” don’t want.

    The United States has gone from using its foreign aid to the P.A. to prop up PLO, Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorism against Israel to subsidizing ISIS terrorism.

    Will ISIS be a final red line for the corrupt farce of a two-state solution and a peace process?

    Against the background of the wave of terrorism in our country, five Arabs from East Jerusalem were arrested last weekend on suspicion of belonging to the Islamic State (ISIS).

    The five, in their 30s, were questioned by police and their detention was extended until tomorrow.

    As you may recall, some of the attacks in the current wave of terrorism were carried out by Arabs who saw themselves as part of the ISIS terrorist organization and our forces set themselves the goal of locating additional supporters of the Islamic State and thus preventing deadly attacks across our country.

    There is evidence to show that the Turkish Intelligence agency MIT, in collusion with its Western and Middles Eastern partners, conspired to bus ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists to Syria which the United States trained at NATO bases in Turkey. Former Today's Zaman editor Abdullah Bozkurt, added that the buses were also owned by the MIT.
