“US, under the guise of combating terrorism, had unleashed a chain of military insanity in Iraq that ultimately led to the establishment of real terrorism and a real terrorist organization, namely ISIS” … By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat/VT (Egypt)
The official inauguration of the world Muslims’ leader, the Amir of all Muslim Believers, or the so called Calipheh (Caliph) doesn’t take place in a presidential/royal palace, It happens in a humble mosque.
No martial parade or red carpet and fanfare are required only blind allegiance of hordes of Muslim extremists and jihadists will often do the job.
And in our case, the mosque was the Nouri mosque in Mosul, Iraq (or the used to be) and the new Muslim Calipheh is the infamous terrorist Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the shadowy leader of ISIS/IS (The Islamic state now)
Contrary to the confirming reports of western intelligence that the man was gravely wounded and is being treated in Syria, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi made his first public and defiant appearance on Friday 4th July in Mosul, the seeming capital of his new Caliphate.
Al Baghdadi looked healthy and rosy-cheeked with no apparent wounds or injuries. He wore black turban and robe, as Prophet Muhammad and Abbasid Caliphs used to. And he even wore his watch in the right hand like hardline Sunnis, Muslim brotherhood and Salafis do.
Many skeptics will claim that the man who appeared in the mosque is not Al Baghdadi himself. But the fact that Al Baghdadi’s top aids, namely Abu Muslim El Turkmani and Abdalla Youssef El Khatoni, were spotted and recognized by Iraqi intelligence and anti-terrorism experts in the video leaves not much room for doubt that it was him. Besides, the previous audio recording of Al Baghdadi matches the new Calipheh’s voice in this historical sermon.
His voice and body language told one thing; Al Baghdadi was feeling strong and confident he was taking the right move.
The most horrifying thing that I have personally felt during and after listening carefully and many times to his full (unedited) speech is that Al Baghdadi seemed so sincere and honest with himself.
Despite the monstrous killing (of fellow Muslims for crying out loud) and atrocities ISIS committed in cold blood, the so called new Caliph really seemed to believe deep inside he was not only doing the right thing but that he was also fulfilling God’s holy orders and following the path of his last prophet. (So much for the Apologetics of the advance of early Islam by benevolent preaching rather than the brutal sword)
There was not a glimpse of guilt in his voice, not a shadow of remorse in his eyes; the new Muslim Calipheh was feeling sanctified by his bloody and brutal Jihad.
Al Baghdadi felt meticulously chosen by God to reestablish his righteous religion, the true Islam. (This is the core problem of Jihadists and Islamic clerics in general; their literal and shallow interpretation of the scripture, whereas they should envision the verses through and within its historical context)
All Jihadists worldwide kill each other and will always embark on killing people of other faith in cold blood by the power of this Quranic Verse, or rather its literal interpretation “And kill them (nonbelievers in Islam) until there is no fitnah (atheism/godlessness)and until the religion, all of it, is for Allah – god of Muslims” 8:39 Qur’an.
This verse was meant to address the Early Muslims of Mohamed supporters, and not the Muslims of today, in their revengeful and last battle before they raided and conquered the landmark town of the Arab Peninsula, Mecca (the future epicenter of Mohamed’s new religion)
Waging global Jihad authorized by the shallow and literal interpretation of this verse, and actually many similar others, will only turn Muslims into terrorists and cold blooded murderers who could not be tolerated anywhere in the world, not even by the used to be peaceful Buddhists.
The true Islam as Caliph Ibrahim explained in his brief and eerie sermon must be established by Jihad and should rule by Sharia law (according to which western democracy is a newly weird innovation and every innovation is but a misguidance and every misguidance is doomed to burn in eternal fire/hell) — pretty scary ..Eh?
As he calmly and arrogantly ascended the steps of the pulpit to deliver his Friday‘s (satanic) sermon to a meager audience of Iraqi Sunnis scattered amongst a throng of Al Baghdadi’s assistants, militias heads and personal body guards Al Baghdadi simply spat in the eyes of everyone and anyone happened to doubt his ability to reach this far.
Al Baghdadi, or the Caliph Ibrahim, has announced to the whole world the establishment, or rather the re-establishment of Islamic Caliph which had been abolished by the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
The last Muslim Caliph was the Turkish Sultan Abdel Majeed II (Abdülmecid II) 1923.
The Turkish Sultan was unseated by a nationalist/secular movement in Turkey and afterwards the Ottoman Empire mainly the Arab world was devoured by British and French colonialism following the notorious Sykes/Picot agreement 1916.
That’s why you find ISIS/IS militants in their horrific YouTube videos pledge, while burning their western and Arab passports, to abolish the fake borders between Arab territories once drawn by the infamous Sykes –Picot agreement/conspiracy.
Their argument and boast is that Arab Muslim land is for all Muslims from around the world with no limits of fake borders or visas – the same policy is being applied I believe in Israel as the “Jewish land for all world Jews” … Is it a coincidence, of course not. (Islamic and Jewish extremism stem from the same tribal and intolerant culture)
End of Arabs’ secular era/modernism, maybe?
Almost after one hundred years of secular nationalism that swept across the Arab world following the model of Egyptian modernism that was set off much earlier in 1805 a new call for Caliphate is now reviving.
I know that ISIS (like the mother ship organization of Muslim Brotherhood) is but a terrorist organization deeply infiltrated by foreign Intelligence (Mossd/CIA and Turkish MIT) and that it is obscenely financed and militarized by huge amounts of petrodollars pouring from Saudi Arabia (opponents to the royal family), Qatar and Turkey.
But my concern is not the covert operations of foreign intelligence to destabilize and fragment the Arab world following the so called Arab Spring (for that could have been avoidable with enough awareness, counterattack and solidarity – unfortunately none of which Arabs have right now)
My concern is not the ongoing 4th generation warfare or the ambitious project of greater Israel now under way but I’m terribly worried by the passive submission of Arabs to all these conspiracies and false flag operations aimed at their fragmentation and final subjugation to an ultimate Zionist control.
In particular, I’m distressed by the rise of sectarianism in the Arab world. And I can see that the Zionist “divide and conquer” is working effectively in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon and even Egypt.
But that sectarian strife between Shia and Sunni and between Muslims and Christians couldn’t have been that easy to inflame hadn’t it been for long decades of Arabs’ collective culture of intolerance and indoctrination of fundamentalism.
The Arabs’ number one enemy is the Arabs themselves. They are too easy to target like a sitting duck amidst a field of crossfire. Victimizing the Arabs won’t work anymore, not for me at least.
Yes, the US/Zionist conspiracy is huge and terrifying but the stupidity and vulnerability of the Arabic national and secular fabric is even more terrifying. (Look how easy Iraq is falling apart right now – turning into a failing state by 4th generation warfare – mainly due to their irreconcilable tribal and religious prejudices)
During two centuries of supposed modernism, the Arab world have been invaded once again with outside imperialism and plagued by corruption and totalitarianism from inside.
But the most worrying fact, and the actual reason of their deterioration, is that the mainstream culture and mindset of the Arabs have not changed over the long decades of the last two centuries.
Modernism was not reaching deep enough; it was merely scratching the surface. Modernism couldn’t reach the bedrock of the Arabs’ tribalism, obscurantism and fundamentalism.
We had schools and universities but we had no actual education. We had parliaments and newspapers but we did not have real democracy or freedom of speech.
Our women and girls had taken off the veils at the beginnings of the twenties centuries, but they all went back and repentantly put it on before the end of the same century. (I’m talking here about liberation of Arab women’s mindset, not the renunciation of their modesty –- dress code and modesty are not necessarily synonymous)
I once asked a nurse that worked with me in an Alexandrian hospital “Why did you wear Hijab when you, twenty years ago, nor even your mother wore it? She instantly replied “we were ignorant; we were not well informed with Sharia and Islamic laws”
But little did that poor nurse know that neither Quran nor Islamic jurisprudence commit Muslim women to wear Hijab or Niqab (only the radicals and their twisted and literal interpretation of the scripture do) … of course I’m going to be bombarded by many hardline Muslims for this – and most ironically by Muslims of Europe and US. (I will elaborate more about those at the end of this post)
ISIS: the outcome of US war on terrorism
Actually there was no global Islamic terrorism not before nor after 9/11. Moreover there was no AL Qaeda either. That bunch of pathetic Jihadists in Afghanistan led by Osama Bin Laden had no actual organization nor any future dreams/ambition of spreading their operations beyond Afghanistan.
US and its CIA inspired (bamboozled) by the Mossad created this myth of international terrorist organization called Al Qaeda and portrayed it as a lethal terrorist web that allegedly had, at that time, affiliates in almost 50 countries around the world (Hilarious narrative turned into an epidemic of western fear by the help of Zionist MSM )
US under the command of a neo-conservative criminal, soaked to the skin with apocalyptic Zionist/Talmudic myths, goes by the name of George W. Bush had unleashed a chain of military insanity in Iraq that ultimately led to the establishment of real terrorism and a real terrorist organization, namely ISIS.
Now the current US administration and the former one as well could feel really proud of themselves. At last their war on terrorism has come to full fruition. The state of Iraq is currently fragmenting into three smaller entities. And Syria and may be Lebanon are standing in line.
ISIS vs Al Qaeda and 4th generation warfare
But this is not the end. ISIS could be a success story for CIA/MOSSAD right now but not for long. Maybe the land of Arab peninsula, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Egypt’s Sinai and Iraq is now the hub of world Islamist terrorism (but once established, ISIS will be operating far and beyond)
ISIS is not Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda was a fake thing; its danger was blown out of proportion, it was a wild card played out by US politicians. While ISIS is a real thing but its huge victory and danger is being played down and left to thrive by the same US/EU politicians
This western reluctance to act promptly and decisively with the present and imminent danger of ISIS might seems contradictory to their holy Gospel of war on terrorism, but a closer look will reveal the perfect harmony of the western passive stand with their newly adopted trend of 4th generation asymmetrical warfare that is currently wreaking havoc in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen.
This is the beauty of this new 4th generation warfare. No boots and uniforms on the ground. Why do it yourself when your own enemies (infiltrated by covert operatives) could do it, even better, and change their own sovereign country into a failed state ready to be controlled and subjugated.
For an excellent and simple explanation of the 4th generation asymmetrical warfare, watch this footage from a lecture by Dr. Max G. Manwaring – at the Strategic studies Institute – US army war college.(The video will help you find out who benefits from ISIS terrorist operations in Iraq and Syria)
Al Qaeda was designed, steered and even terminated however and whenever the CIA guys wanted. ISIS is a different story; it’s an obviously more organized, highly militarily trained to use US sophisticated weaponry and attracting evermore young recruits .It is also considered now one of the wealthiest terrorist organizations with huge funds and revenues. (IS is already issuing passports and promotional publications for the new Caliphate)
ISIS militants/terrorists really mean business (if you’re in doubt watch them in this live combat video – very disturbing scenes)
Maybe those gangs of Islamist terrorists and Jihadists are doing a hell of a job destabilizing and fragmenting the Arab world as preplanned. And surely the US/EU will look the other way and make believe they see no terrorism and hear no terrorism until the whole region is set for a greater Israel scenario. (Hillary Clinton, US most probable next president says it’s certainly not in US interest to interfere in Iraq right now)
What the western strategists and intelligence experts missed though is the appeal and influence ISIS will gain (and is already gaining) amongst hordes of Arabs who terribly suffer from displacement, poverty, and perpetual injustice and marginalization (I’m talking here about Palestinian, Syrian and Somali refugees and also the helpless natives who couldn’t flee Iraqi and Syrian warfare)
I’m also referring to the plausibility of reviving/activating sleeper cells of Islamist extremists and Salafist Sunnis all over the Arab world and their willingness to not only pledge allegiance to IS and its new Caliph but to join them in Jihad as brothers in arms. (watch video of Eastern Syrian clans and sleeper Jihadist cells pledging allegiance to Al Baghdadi)
Not to mention the Jihadist cells in Europe, Caucasus, and US. Those western Islamist Jihadists who were the first to respond to Jihad call in Syria are now amongst the top operatives in IS
And if the weird phenomenon of native European and American young Muslims, mostly of second and third generation of Muslim immigrants to the west is saying anything; it is simply pinpointing the fact that most Muslims could not/and will not assimilate into western culture and values.
In short, and before we know it ISIS could turn, this time around and contrary to Al Qaeda hoax, into the most dangerous international terrorist organization the world has ever come to witness.
If ISIS is allowed to grow bigger in the hope of fragmenting the Arab world and giving more space and influence for the Zionist entity then this whole thing will turn into an imminent world menace
The main target behind ISIS is to ignite a shiite/Sunni inferno that will drag Saudi Arabia and Iran into a dreadful conflict that would destabilize and weaken both states.
But the fear is that inferno will engulf the whole region and beyond and push it over the threshold into a third world war
This inferno will not be controllable, and nobody will be immune from it, most of all the Jewish state of Israel (maybe only then the US/EU will regain some of their lost senses and start to see and hear the evil of their own doing.
