Monitor The Strategic Trends

The Rise of Islam Introduction:


With the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, it has become of paramount importance to understand the origin, nature, and agenda of Islam. While there is no intent here to impugn the many peace-loving Muslims with the aggressive actions of the militant leadership, it is critical to recognize this most threatening challenge to Christians, Jews, and to Western civilization.

Contrary to popular understanding, Islam did not begin with Mohammad. Most of the practices still embodied in Islam had their beginning in pre-Islamic Arabia. Mohammad repackaged the pagan worship associated with the Ka’aba in Mecca into a monotheistic form.

72 Virgins



Sensual Paradise

In Islam, the concept of 72 virgins (houri) refers to an aspect of Jannah (Paradise). This concept is grounded in Qur'anic text which describe a sensual Paradise where believing men are rewarded by being wed to virgins with "full grown", "swelling" or "pears-shaped" breasts.


Contemporary mainstream Islamic scholars, for example; Gibril Haddad, have commented on the erotic nature of the Qur'anic Paradise, by saying some men may need ghusl (ablution required after sexual discharge) just for hearing certain verses.

Orthodox Muslim theologians such as al-Ghazali (died 1111 CE) and al-Ash'ari (died 935 CE) have all discussed the sensual pleasures found in Paradise. It is quoted by Ibn Kathir, in his Qur'anic Commentary, the Tafsir ibn Kathir, and they are graphically described by Qur'anic commentator and polymath, al-Suyuti (died 1505), who, echoing a hasan hadith from Ibn Majah, wrote that the perpetual virgins will all "have appetizing vaginas", and that the "penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal".

The sensual pleasures between believers and houri in Paradise are also confirmed by the two Sahih collections of hadith, namely Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, where we read that they will be virgins who "will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions", and whose "sweat will smell like musk. They are so beautiful, pure and transparent that "the marrow of the bones of their legs will be seen through the bones and the flesh",and that "the believers will visit and enjoy them".


There are several descriptions related to houri that are found in various Islamic references. Some include:

Physical Attributes:

  • Wide and beautiful/lovely eyes
  • Like pearls
  • Hairless except the eye brows and the head

In addition to Quranic translations of 78:33 specifying the virgins will be voluptuous, Sahih International translates it as "full-breasted [companions] of equal age". Tafsir al-Jalalayn says "and buxom maidens (kawā‘ib is the plural of kā‘ib) of equal age (atrāb is the plural of tirb)". Several Islamic scholars explain that they will have "large, round breasts which are not inclined to hang".

  • Beautiful
  • White
  • 60 cubits [27.5 meters] tall
  • 7 cubits [3.2 meters] in width
  • Transparent to the marrow of their bones
  • Eternally young
  • Companions of equal age

Sexual Attributes:

  • Untouched / with hymen unbroken by sexual intercourse
  • Virgins
  • Voluptuous/full-breasted
  • With large, round breasts which are not inclined to hang
  • Appetizing vaginas

Personality Attributes:

  • Chaste
  • Restraining their glances
  • Modest gaze

Other Attributes:

  • Splendid
  • Pure
  • Non-menstruating / non-urinating/ non-defecating and childfree
  • Sweat that smells like musk

EXCLUSIVE: Changing Dynamics In The Global Jihad Movement (4): ISIS's Operations And Recruitment In Libya


Since the Islamic State (ISIS) announced its "province" in Libya on November 13, 2014,this country has become a hotspot of ISIS activity. In a relatively short period of time, ISIS managed to mount several high-profile attacks againsta variety of targets, including government institutions, foreign embassies, Western economic interests and sites frequented by foreigners, and against Christians and foreign journalists.

Unlike other ISIS provinces declared recently in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Sinai, the Libyan province hasproducedhigh-profile attacks,and has also taken tangible measures to exert its authority in the areas it controls, for instance by establishing governing bodies such as an Islamic court,a religious policing force and a department of education.While the exact extent of the ISIS-controlled areas remains unknown, ISIS'spresence and activities haveclearly expanded well beyond the city of Derna, where it first gained a foothold, spreading westward towards Libya's capital, Tripoli. ISIS recently seized several radio stations in the coastal town of Sirte, half way between Tripoli and Benghazi, and used them to broadcast its propaganda.It also carried out attacks against a security checkpoint in the Tripoli suburb ofJanzour, and detonated a car bomb in Misrata outside the headquarters of Battalion 166, a militia affiliated with the General National Congress (GNC), the self-proclaimedIslamist parliament in Tripoli.

Encouraged by ISIS's successes in Libya, the organization's supporters have beencalling for fighters of all nationalities to make hijra to this country to join ISIS there. ISIS supporters also published articles extoling ISIS's achievements in Libya, while emphasizingthis country's key role as a gateway to both Africa and Europe. They noted the ease of launching attacks from Libya against southern Europe, and warned Europe not to interveneagainst the Islamists in Libya.

EXCLUSIVE: Two AQIM Factions Express Support For The Islamic State (ISIS) And Its Leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi

Two Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) factions have recently expressed support for the Islamic State (ISIS) and its leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, according to a tweet posted on the account of Abu Al-Harith Al-Tindoufi[1] (@ALTENDOFE) on March 20, 2015.

The tweet stated: "Ajnad Al-Sahel and Liwa' Al-Furqan, which belong to the Al-Qaeda [in the Islamic Maghreb] organization, announce [their] support for the caliphate state."

According to jihadi sources on Al-Fida' forum, Ajnad Al-Sahel operates near the Mali-Niger border and Liwa' Al-Furqan is among the largest brigades in the Sahel region. 



Jabhat Al-Nusra (JN) Supporters On Twitter: Syrian Pilot, Helicopter, And Crew In Idlib Should Be Freed Only In Exchange For Top JN Official Abu Mus'ab Al-Suri

On March 22, a Syrian Air Force helicopter went down in Jabal Al-Zawiya in Idlib province; four crew, including the pilot, were taken prisoner by members of the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhad Al-Nusra (JN).

The Al-Fida' jihadi forum posted photos that it claimed were of the crashed helicopter, the capture of the crew, and the crew members' identity cards. One photo, titled "The moment of execution of one of the crew of the helicopter that Allah brought down with his great might," appears to show a JN member shooting and killing one of the prisoners.

Posted photo claimed to be of JN member shooting and killing helicopter crew member 

The helicopter, pilot, and crew falling into JN's hands brought rejoicing among JN members. JN supporters launched a campaign calling for a prisoner exchange deal the pilot for top Al-Qaeda ideologue Abu Mus'ab Al-Suri, who is in a Syrian government prison and a hashtag in Arabic, #The Al-Nasiri [i.e. Alawite, or Assad Army] Pilot For Abu Mus'ab Al-Suri, was created.


ISIS Video Shows Assyrian Christian And Former Prisoner Who Converted To Islam

On March 23, 2015, the Islamic State (ISIS) released a six-minute video showing an Assyrian Christian prisoner who converted to Islam.

The man was supposedly imprisoned during ISIS's attack on a number of Assyrian villages in Syria last month. ISIS had subsequently taken over 200 Christians prisoners, but had released at least 24 of them since then.


In Video, Kurdish ISIS Fighters Lash Out At Kurdish Leaders, Armed Groups; Execute Kurdish Captive

On March 23, 2015, the Islamic State (ISIS) released, via Al-Hayat Media, a video featuring a group of Kurdish ISIS fighters delivering various messages. The video, titled "A Message To The People Of Kurdistan," is directed mainly against Kurdistan's political leaders and government, and accuses them collectively of being apostate, atheist, and secular. It calls on the Muslim Kurds to join ISIS, where, it says, they can live under the shade of the caliphate. Telling the Kurdish government that the U.S. and European aid it has been receiving will not help it win the battle against ISIS, it underlines ISIS's continued expansion and its desire to free every inch of Muslim land and beyond. The video ends with the execution of a captive Kurdish policeman.  

The video, 24:21 in duration, was released on the Shumoukh Al-Islam forum. The statements are in Kurdish and the video is subtitled in Arabic. The following are the main points of the video, based on these subtitles:

ISIS Supporters Publish Hit-List Of 100 US Military Personnel, With Pictures And Addresses

On March 21, 2015, Islamic State (ISIS) supporters circulated on jihadi forums and social media a document in English by an unknown group calling itself the Islamic State Hacking Division (ISHD).

In a clip posted on the internet on March 21, 2015, Shi'ite Lebanese scholar Muhammad Ali Al-Husseini attacked Iran's expansionism and interference in Arab countries such as Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. He added that "the honorable resistance should unite, because Iraq is occupied by the Iranian regime today."

Click here to view this clip on MEMRI TV

Muhammad Ali Al-Husseini: "Today, I am sad to say, we see that Beirut has been occupied, that Damascus has been occupied, that Sanaa has been occupied, and that Baghdad, unfortunately, has been occupied too. Today, we see (Qassem) Al-Soleimani coming to drink coffee in Iraq, saying: 'I am back.'



"Islam is the religion of us all. We share the same God, the same Quran, and the same Prophet. We also share the same enemy, which is infiltrating the Arab nation today. Look what is going on in our countries, in our capital cities. How come there is stability in Tehran? How come Tehran is safe? How come all the catastrophes befall us Arabs? In Syria, the collaborators of Qassem Soleimani, headed by Hassan Nasra-llat (i.e., polytheist Nasrallah), storm (the homes) of families in Syria to kill, rape, and plunder, bearing the (Shi'ite) banner of Hussein. Indeed, Hussein has nothing to do with them. He (Soleimani) invades Yemen to occupy this Arab land, and to declare, from there, that he wants to occupy the Land of the Two Holy Mosques as well. He also invades Iraq. The Iraqi army used to fend off the Safavids.



"Today, words are futile. We need actions. What we need to do is to unite. The honorable resistance should unite, because Iraq is occupied by the Iranian regime today. It is occupied not by the Shi'ites, but by the Iranian regime. Oh Shi'ites of Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen, the Iranian regime is using you as a bridge to cross into the (Arab) nation.


"It is the Iranian intelligence that controls the office of (Ayatollah) Al-Sistani. He does not see or know about any of the statements they publish. Thus, all the biased fatwas issued in his name serve the Iranian regime."

Immediate Iranian Reaction To Sunni Arab Military Campaign To Push Back Shi'ite Expansion: Calls For Houthis To Attack Saudi Oil Wells And Tankers, Operate In Saudi Territory And Straits Of Bab Al-Mandeb And Hormuz

Immediately following the launch of Saudi-led Sunni Arab coalition attacks on the Houthi rebels in Yemen on March 26, 2015, Tehran – the patron of Yemen's Shi'ite Houthis, to whom it provides comprehensive military and financial support – threatened Saudi Arabia and warned that the attack would harm it to the point that its own regime would collapse. These threats were voiced by both of Iran's political camps.

The website Khabar Online, which is affiliated with Iran's pragmatic camp, led by Expediency Council Chairman Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and President Hassan Rohani, called on the Houthis to launch an all-out attack on oil fields, tankers, and industrial facilities in Saudi Arabia, as well as to operate deep inside Saudi territory and conduct retaliatory strikes against Saudi interests in the Strait of Bab Al-Mandeb, the Red Sea, and even the Strait of Hormuz. The website also called on members of the resistance axis to use Saudi Arabia's focus on the Yemeni arena to inflict losses upon it in other Shi'ite-Sunni conflict zones in the Middle East such as Iraq, Syria, and Bahrain.

Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member Ismail Kothari estimated that the Saudi attack on Yemen would lead to the collapse of the Saudi regime, and called on the Saudi people to rise up against the Al-Saud regime, which he claims launched the attack against Yemen's Houthis on American-Israeli orders. The committee chairman, Ala Al-Din Boroujerdi, warned Saudi Arabia that the war would spill over into its own territory. Assembly of Experts member Ayatollah Abbas Ka'bi predicted that Yemen would become a quagmire for Saudi Arabia, and that it would not succeed in imposing a Saudi-American puppet regime on the country.

On his way to Switzerland for another round of talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif demanded to immediately halt Saudi Arabia's Sunni-Arab coalition attacks on Yemen. 

Khabar Online: The Houthis Now Have The Pretext To Launch Military Operations And Retaliatory Strikes In Saudi Arabia, Bab Al-Mandeb, The Red Sea, And Even The Strait Of Hormuz

On March 26, 2015, the website Khabar Online published an article titled "The Attack on the Yemeni Revolution: The Arena Of Retaliation Stretches From Bab Al-Mandeb To The Strait Of Hormuz", which stated: "Despite the fact that Saudi Arabia gathered several countries... to ensure that the implications of its attack on the popular revolution in Yemen would be directed at a coalition of Arab countries, the consequences of this move will undoubtedly be directed at its own interests. The Saudi-Western front wants to restrict Ansar Allah to North Yemen and distance the Houthis from [the Strait of] Bab Al-Mandeb. [Therefore,] it is possible that they would go as far as splitting Yemen or occupying parts of the south to realize this goal... Now the Houthis also have the necessary pretext to launch military operations and retaliatory strikes deep inside Saudi territory, in Bab Al-Mandeb, the Red Sea, and even the Strait of Hormuz. The foremost high priority targets for them are the oil fields, tankers, and industry.

"The Saudis are unable to destroy the Houthis and the popular revolution in Yemen and the Houthis are unable to invade Saudi Arabia and destroy it. However, the Houthis have lived with such bombings for years. Two years ago, [ousted Yemeni president] 'Ali 'Abdallah Saleh bombed their mountain positions for months in coordination with Saudi Arabia, but the Houthis have only grown stronger [since then]. The Saudis in their ivory towers are undoubtedly more vulnerable than the Houthis and the Yemeni people.

"Riyadh's focus on Yemen and [their] high alert, which stems from the fear of Houthi retaliation, could reduce their attention and focus on the other fronts in the region, including Iraq, Syria, and Bahrain. This is a good opportunity for the other fronts to grow stronger against Saudi Arabia. The Saudis know full well that they cannot bear a war of attrition and it is possible that they will seek a mediator for a political compromise in Yemen. According to the famous saying, 'he who starts [the war] is not necessarily the one who ends it,' we must see whether the Houthis will be prepared to end this new chapter that the Saudis mistakenly started or not."[1] 

Majlis Officials: The War Will Not Be Confined To Yemeni Territory; Saudi Arabia's Attack Will Lead To Its Own Collapse

In an interview with the Fars news agency on March 26, 2015, Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member Ismail Kothari, who is a former member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said: "In the first days, Saudi Arabia will be ostensibly successful, but it will undoubtedly suffer a blow that will lead to its collapse. The Saudi army is being aided by the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, and Egypt, but [the security of] these countries is itself questionable. America and Israel are the chief decision-makers of the Saudi military attack against Yemen and are in charge of the means and the policy planning on this matter. The Saudi people must protest since this attack will harm Saudi Arabia itself as well."[2]

Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Ala Al-Din Boroujerdi added that the attack was carried out with American authorization and that "Saudi Arabia is igniting a new war in the region as part of its disregard for and irresponsibility towards the problems of the Islamic ummah. The smoke from this fire will get in Saudi Arabia's eyes, since war is never confined to a single point."[3] 

Assembly Of Experts Member: Yemen Will Become A Quagmire For The Aggressors

Assembly of Experts member Ayatollah Abbas Ka'bi told the Fars news agency on March 26, 2015: "The purpose of this attack is to impose a Saudi-American puppet regime on the Yemeni people... This military attack will pave the road to the presence of ISIS, takfiris, and Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The attacking forces will undoubtedly be defeated and Yemen will become a quagmire for the aggressors."[4] 

Zarif: The Regional Countries Attacking Yemen And The West Are Becoming Collaborators For Al-Qaeda And ISIS

In a press conference in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the outskirts of the current round of nuclear talks between Iran and the U.S., Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said: "We call on all regional countries and on the West to be careful to not become collaborators of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in these shortsighted games... Since the start of the Yemen crisis, Iran has demanded national dialogue among Yemeni circles and the establishment of a unity government to combat terrorist extremism and takfiri circles. Iran believes that this is the only way to solve the crisis in Yemen. We must find a way to immediately stop this attack and launch dialogue to find a solution. Iran has devoted all its efforts to limit and restrain this crisis and with God's help, it will continue with these efforts."[5]

Lebanese Cleric Maher Hamoud: Israel Will Cease To Exist In 2022

In a March 9 interview with the Lebanese channel NBN TV, Lebanese cleric and imam of the Al-Quds Mosque in Sidon Sheik Maher Hamoud said that according to various calculations, based on the Quran, the Torah, and astronomy, the end of Israel would come in 2022.

Following are excerpts:

Click here to view this clip on MEMRI TV

Maher Hamoud: "We have seen the cowardly Jew in Southern Lebanon, in Gaza, and elsewhere. The cowardly Jew fears death – unlike our youth whose [religious] conviction makes them go to their death whole-heartedly.



"The end of Israel is inevitable and, Allah willing, imminent."

Interviewer: "Allah wiling."


Maher Hamoud: "This was [determined] in Quranic prophecies, as well as in the Torah. Without going into too many details, many of the Jews said even in the 1940s, before the state of Israel was established: 'If we establish a state, it will last for 76 years.' If you subtract two years more or less from these 76 years – due to the lunar calendar – you arrive at 2022. Many brothers reached this conclusion, on the basis of their analysis of the Quran and the Torah, as well as on analysis of history and astronomy."

Pakistani Daily: 'Modi [Going] In The Footprints Of Yehudi [Jew]'; 'In The Future, Both Of These Cow-Worshipers [Hindus And Zionists] Are Going To Be … More Dangerously Racist Than Hitler'; Muslims and Christians Should Jointly Oppose the Zionist-Hindu Alliance

The article in Roznama Pakistan

An article titled "Modi in the Footprints of Yehudi [Jew]" in the mainstream Pakistani Urdu-language daily Roznama Pakistan argued that a Zionist-Hindu alliance is threatening Muslims, and therefore a Muslim-Christian understanding is currently needed.

The article was written by Dr. Zahoor Ahmad Azhar, who argued that the Zionists and Hindus will prove to be more racist in coming years. He went on to praise Pope Francis for his visit to Turkey to promote world peace.

The following are excerpts:

"An Anti-Muslim Terrorist Like [Indian Prime Minister Narendra] Modi … Has Embarked On Implementing The [Hindu] Agenda"

"At present, the Islamic East, rather the whole of Asia, is at the target of two racist groups. Not only is there complete harmony and cooperation between the two, but military pacts between them also exist. One of these is the Zionist state of Israel and the other is idol-worshiping Hindu India. Interestingly, by tongue both claim to follow secularism and democracy but from inside they are - not only extremely, but obnoxiously - religious fanatics and prejudiced to a dangerous level.

"Presently, only Muslims appear to be in the line of their target, but in the future both of these cow-worshipers are going to be proven to be more dangerously racist than Hitler; and for this it is enough evidence that for the past quarter of a century the Muslim minority [in India], along with the Christian minority and the Sikhs, have been at the receiving end of wrathful Hindus.

"The Zionist Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu is not ready to recognize an independent Palestine, despite the dominant majority decision of the United Nation, has demonstrated extreme barbarism and atrocities against the unarmed Palestinians of Gaza, and has now gotten a Palestinian minister strangled to death publicly at the hands of the animals of the Zionist police. [He] has contemptuously … rejected the [idea of] an independent Palestine state in the West Bank.

"On this side, an anti-Muslim terrorist like [Narendra] Modi, after becoming prime minister on the back of his decisive victory [in the mid-2014 parliamentary elections in India], has embarked on implementing the [Hindu] agenda of [the rightwing Hindu religious group] Hindu Mahasabha. As a first step he wants to, by changing the constitutional position of Kashmir, massacre the Muslims in Kashmir ... as he did in Gujarat, to terrorize the entire Subcontinent, including Pakistan and Bangladesh, so that he can fulfill the Hindu Mahasabha's agenda."

"It Is The Duty Of Pakistani Leaders To Set Aside Their Differences And Make The World Aware Of The Dangers [Posed] By These Two Racist Groups [Hindus And Zionists]"

"It is the duty of Pakistani leaders to set aside their differences and make the world aware of the dangers [posed] by these two racist groups. At this time, not only has the conscientious and aware Christian-Europe awoken and is determined to recognize the independent state of Palestine, but the humans of the East and the West also want to stop the out-of-control Zionist Israel.

"To express opposition to atrocities against Muslims, the Pope is also visiting Islamic countries and wants to see peace and justice thriving in the world. Recently, the Pope visited Turkey, where Turkish President Erdogan received him and praised his efforts for justice and peace. Turkey's Grand Mufti also accompanied the Pope during his entire visit.

"During the Pope's visit of dioceses and mosques, the Grand Mufti told the Pope that his aim to establish peace and justice is in fact a command of our pious prophet of peace and justice, [who said] 'you establish a just system in the world, which would automatically result in the establishment of peace'. The Pope's visit is indicative of Muslim-Christian desire for understanding."

Lebanese MP: We Must Liberate Arab Countries From The Iranian Occupation

In light of Iran's increasing physical presence and influence in Arab countries, particularly in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen, there has been a proliferation of voices in the anti-Iranian Arab camp arguing that the Iranian presence in those four countries constitutes occupation and that action must be taken to prevent Iran from occupying additional countries.

As evidence, the speakers pointed to a recent statement by Ali Younesi, advisor to Iranian President Hassan Rohani, who said that Iran is an empire and Iraq is its capital (see MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 5991, Advisor To Iranian President Rohani: Iran Is An Empire, Iraq Is Our Capital; We Will Defend All The Peoples Of The Region; Iranian Islam Is Pure Islam – Devoid Of Arabism, Racism, Nationalism, March 9, 2015).

Expressing the fear that Iran will occupy large portions of Arab countries, Lebanese MP Muhammad 'Abd Al-Latif Kabbara, from the Al-Mustaqbal party which is close to Saudi Arabia, called on the Arabs to give national and pan-Arab priority to liberating Arab countries occupied by Iran – and to make it even more of a priority than fighting the Islamic State (ISIS). In a press statement, Kabbara discussed how all Arabs are hostile to Israel, which occupies a single Arab country (Palestine), but are doing nothing about Iran, which he said has so far occupied four Arab countries. Operations to liberate the Arab countries from Iran should not take the U.S. position into account, he said, because the Arabs could end up paying the price for a U.S.-Iran nuclear agreement.

Muhammad 'Abd Al-Latif Kabbare (Source: imlebanon.org, March 13, 2015)

It should be noted that Khaled Khoja, chairman of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, also said that the Syrian opposition must now deal not only with the Syrian regime but with an Iranian occupation, and that Bashar Al-Assad has become Iran's executive manager in Syria.

The following are excerpts from Kabbara's statement to the press:

The Persian Invasion Of Arab Countries Is Aimed At Reviving The Persian Empire

"Iran has passed the stage in which we [merely] accuse it of occupying Arab territory. It has confirmed what we have warned against, and it brazenly, arrogantly, and boastfully claims to be an empire in the entire Arab East, with Baghdad, not Tehran, as its capital. There is a need for the Arabs to take serious measures in order to confront this occupation...

"There must be serious, practical, and realistic discussion of a plan to liberate the Arab countries occupied by Iran and to stand against its expansionist aspirations, in order to prevent it from occupying more Arab countries."

Sunni And Shi'ite Commentators Clash On TV Over Military Campaign In Tikrit

During an Iraqi TV debate, Sunni and Shi'ite commentators clashed over the role of the Shi'ite Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi militia in the military campaign in Tikrit, in the Salah Al-Din province of Iraq. Participating in the debate were Abu Wareth Al-Musawi, spokesman for the Al-Nujaba Movement, part of Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi, Amman-based Iraqi researcher Dr. Yahya Al-Kubaisi, and Qais Al-Ameri, of the National Iraqi Alliance. After much wrangling between the participants, Al-Kubaisi got up and left the studio in protest. The debate aired on Dijlah TV on March 14, 2015.

During a recent TV debate on the destruction of antiquities by ISIS, Syrian political analyst Yahya Badr said that the Egyptian people was entitled to claim legal rights in Australia, since inscriptions in ancient hieroglyphics had been found near Sydney, indicating that the grandson of a pharoah had landed there. On the show, which aired on the Turkish TRT TV channel on March 6, 2015, Badr was introduced as owning the patent to mummy technology.

Following are excerpts:

TV host: "Let's discuss the destruction of antiquities."

Yahya Badr: "This is a crime, because antiquities constitute documentation, which preserves the [legal] rights of nations.

"Let me give you an example unknown to many. In Australia, there is a cave in a place called Hunter Valley, 100 km north of Sydney. In this cave, there are two wall inscriptions in ancient hieroglyphics. The scientist Ray Johnson translated these inscriptions.


"It is very strange to find in Australia 4,300-4,400-year-old hieroglyphics. The English [translation] refers to the grandson of Khufu, Djes-eb. It says that he sailed westward for two seasons, or two years. So where was he coming from? From the American continent. He sailed until he got there. Pharaoh ordered him to bring insects, and he was killed there.


"You know, in the history of colonialism, the first to discover a new land and to plant his flag there gets to own it. Therefore, the Egyptian people is entitled to claim its [legal] rights in Australia, because of the two 'documents' that date back to the time of Khufu, and say that he was returning from America.

"This is very important. This is why history is so important. He who destroys history destroys the rights of nations."

TV host: "Okay. Thank you."

Iran Escalates Naval Threats Against U.S. In Persian Gulf

Share this on Tumblr

Since Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) conducted the Great Prophet 9 maneuvers on February 25-27, 2015, which culminated in a takeover and sinking of a model of an American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, the Iranian regime has escalated its naval threats against the U.S. These have included threats to take over and sink American aircraft carriers and other warships; to close the Strait of Hormuz and Bab El-Mandeb; to carry out large-scale missile attacks inside and outside the Persian Gulf; and to mine the Persian Gulf.

Tehran's recognition of its technological inferiority vis-à-vis the West has long since led it to adopt an asymmetric strategy, including a naval aspect; this naval strategy relies, inter alia, on the use of suicide attacks and on Iran's missile capabilities.

During the Great Prophet 9 maneuvers, IRGC deputy commander Hossein Salami said that according to Iran's strategic plan, Iran would attempt to take over aircraft carriers, and that if these attempts were met with resistance, but it would sink them if it encountered resistance. He noted that Iran would fire missile barrages, and that since it has accurately hit a vessel 60 meters long, it could easily target American aircraft carriers. IRGC naval commander Ali Fadavi said that vessels in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman, and the northern Indian Ocean are all within range of Iran's missiles and under the threat of its warships.

In early March 2015, Hossein Dalirian, a journalist for the website Tasnim, which is close to the IRGC, tweeted images of an IRGC speedboat approaching American ships in the Persian Gulf and photographing them.

Recently, regime officials and mouthpieces have also renewed threats to close the Strait of Hormuz. Ali Fadavi threatened to close it in response to American interference, while the regime mouthpiece Kayhan called for its closure and stated that Iran needed to cause the West economic damage similar to the damage caused to Iran by the sanctions.

At the same time, Nasim Online, a website close to the IRGC, explained that Tehran's recent threats to close the Strait of Hormuz would be actualized only if Iran were to be attacked.

Also, following the Houthi takeover of the regime in Sana'a, Yemen, there was a proliferation of statements on the Iranian presence in Bab El-Mandeb and on the rise of a decisive Iranian naval force in the Persian Gulf and on the Mediterranean coast.

This paper will review Iran's recent naval threats:

Threats To Use Suicide Speedboats Against U.S. Forces In The Gulf

On February 25, 2015, the website Tasnim, which is close to the IRGC, published a video showing "the moment of impact between an unmanned IRGC suicide boat and a model of the American aircraft carrier."

In a March 5, 2015 interview with Iranian TV, IRGC deputy commander Hossein Salami explained that Iran would rather take over than sink American aircraft carriers and warships, but that it would sink them if it encountered resistance: "Our goal is to disable the warships and take them over, not sink [them]. The reason is humanitarian, since these warships hold 6,000 crew. We will sink them only if there is resistance...

"Aircraft carriers are customarily an international symbol of the superpowers, especially of America. These warships are dispersed across the world, and the superpowers, especially America, gain a political boost from their intimidation factor. You would be hard pressed to find countries that believe they can overcome this asset. Iran is among the few countries that have overcome the image that the enemy wishes to create regarding its strength. These forces are supposedly large, but at the same time, they are vulnerable. If any nation decides to overcome a certain phenomenon, it will undoubtedly use all the necessary means to defeat that force..."

Referring to surface-to-sea missiles, Salami added: "These mobile missiles are launched while completely invisible and undetectable... One of our strategic goals is to reduce the deviation of these missiles, and today, thanks to the efforts of Iran's revolutionary youth, the surface-to-sea missiles have zero deviation, and when a missile is fired, it is aimed at the stern of the warship. We are able to launch hundreds of such missiles simultaneously...

"The Khalij-e Fars is a ballistic missile that is different from a cruise missile. It has extraordinary in-atmosphere velocity, and can hit a moving target hundreds of kilometers away with zero deviation... This missile was successfully launched during the recent maneuvers, and managed to strike a moving vessel 60 meters [long]. When a ballistic missile can deliver a pinpoint strike to a target several times smaller than an aircraft carrier, is it not the time to realize that the aircraft carrier story is over? ... In effect, we will not fire one or two missiles, but huge barrages..."

Threats To Close The Strait Of Hormuz And Bab El-Mandeb

IRGC Navy Commander: We Will Close The Strait Of Hormuz In Response To American Interference

In a March 2, 2015 interview on Al-'Alam TV, IRGC Navy Commander Ali Fadavi said: "The Americans' arrival in the area – despite their claim that this was meant to strengthen regional security and stability – has increased the dangers encountered by vessels in the Gulf. The Americans are not in a situation that allows them to threaten the security of the Persian Gulf.

"It is the Americans, more than us, who seek to avoid fighting, because the situation does not allow them to do so. The IRGC oversees the region day and night, and the distance between us and the Americans, when they wish to cross the Strait of Hormuz, is only a few hundred meters. Contacts between us and the Americans in the Strait of Hormuz take place as part of international law and regulations. We have enough strength to keep the Strait of Hormuz open for the use of all countries. American interference will lead to its closure. It is our religious duty [to ensure] that energy can pass through the Strait of Hormuz so that the world suffers no harm.

"In the recent maneuvers, we tested strategic weapons whose power and effectiveness the Americans cannot estimate, but also cannot ignore. The incorporation of these new weapons plays a critical role in increasing Iran's naval strength to deal with threats to the Islamic Revolution, and especially against the Great Satan – America."

Kayhan: Why Shouldn't Iran Close The Strait Of Hormuz?

On February 28, 2015, the regime mouthpiece Kayhan called for closing the Strait of Hormuz. An article titled "The Strait of Hormuz – A Tool For Sanctions Against Sanctions" stated that "some 68% of the world's oil and gas reserves pass through the Strait of Hormuz, and [therefore] the security of the Strait of Hormuz plays a key role in the world's uninterrupted supply of energy... Their closure would be a nightmare for America and the global economy. Aside from the deadly impact of shutting down the world's energy lifeline, the most important aspect is the impact of the challenge to American hegemony. It has indeed been challenged in several other arenas, but [closing the Strait of Hormuz] could make it the graveyard of the American superpower..."

Arab Press Harshly Criticizes Obama Administration For Allying With Iran, Turning Its Back On Arab Friends, Leading Region To Disaster

Against the backdrop of the current U.S.-Iran nuclear negotiations and the war on the Islamic State (ISIS), in recent weeks dozens of articles in the Arab press, and particularly in the Saudi press, have harshly criticized the Obama administration's policy in the region – especially its Iran policy, which they term "destructive", "idiotic", "dangerous" and "narrow-minded."

Expressing apprehension at the prospect of a U.S.-Iran nuclear agreement that would strengthen Iran at the expense of the Sunni countries, which are long-time U.S. allies, some writers stated that because President Obama seeks a nuclear agreement with Iran for his own personal glory, while the cost of such an agreement does not matter to him. They wrote that Obama disregards Iran's actions, and is giving it and the organizations affiliated with it a free hand to operate in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Bahrain, and by doing so is allowing Iran to further expand in the region.

Some of the writers argued that the U.S. policy in Iraq and Syria that had given Iran freedom to operate in those countries had given rise to ISIS, since the U.S.-Iran alliance had humiliated the Sunni Arabs and created optimal conditions for the group to emerge.

One writer even called on the Arab countries and Turkey to confront the Obama administration, thwart its policy in the region, and come out strongly against any agreement it signs with Iran that does not absolutely prevent it from possessing nuclear weapons. Another speculated that the countries of the region could be better off finding someone else to rely on rather than the U.S.

The following are translated excerpts from several articles:  

Saudi Intellectual: Obama Has Allied With Shi'ite Militias Against Sunni Militias

Saudi political commentator Khaled Al-Dahil argued in the London-based daily Al-Hayat that Obama's policy in the region is destructive, and that the Arabs must not remain silent about it. He wrote that the Obama administration is allowing Iran and its militias in Syria and Iraq a free hand, and helping it fight Sunni organizations in the region, with the aim of pacifying it in advance of the signing of the nuclear agreement. :"... The Obama administration realizes quite well that the war on ISIS as it is currently being waged has destructive sectarian repercussions, which if not dealt with will blow up in everyone's face. But has this administration...done a thing to correct how this war is being conducted?...Certainly not! This administration has acted, and continues to act, contrary to the fears that it itself has expressed. [It does] this because of its wish to ally with Iran, as part of the war on ISIS – in an alliance that will be secret until a nuclear agreement [with Iran] is reached and [U.S.-Iran] relations are normalized.

"Obama sees several advantages in this war [against ISIS]: It reassures Iran and gives it the sense that the U.S. seeks to rescue it from an additional enemy [ISIS], after saving it from the Taliban and from Saddam Hussein. Similarly, Obama hopes that in this way he will succeed in persuading Iran to make the necessary concessions in order to arrive at the longed-for nuclear agreement.

"However, Obama has gone further than that: together with Russia, he has given Iran a free hand in Syria to support the Syrian regime and crush the local opposition. Thus, the American president's opportunism is very clearly exposed. As a skilled attorney and politician, he knows that ISIS, as a sectarian organization, is the natural and direct outcome of the sectarian wars that began with the American invasion of Iraq. [On the other hand], President Obama himself has called the Iranian regime theocratic – that is, a sectarian regime... – because a religious political regime is by definition, and necessarily, a sectarian regime. Furthermore, it was the Iranian regime that defined itself as sectarian in its [own] constitution (see sections 12, 71, and 115 of Iran's constitution). This means that... Obama is fighting the sectarian ISIS with a sectarian policy and sectarian tools...

"True, Obama has not allied formally with Iran for the war on ISIS, but he has allied de facto with Iran... [and] with its militias and the militias under its influence. That is why the Obama administration disregards all Iran's military and intelligence activity in Syria and Iraq – from its dispatching of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) fighters and its financing and training of Iraqi Shi'ite militias, to the fight against ISIS, whether by means of [Iranian] airstrikes against it or by means of these [same] militias.

"It is striking that the Obama administration has deployed over 3,000 troops to train the so-called Hashd Sha'bi [Popular Mobilization] Forces – a group of Shi'ite militias that was formed after the collapse of the Iraqi army and Mosul's fall to ISIS last year. That is, the Obama administration has allied de facto with Shi'ite militias to fight Sunni militias...

"The Houthi takeover in Yemen opens an additional front in the Sunni-Shi'ite war. Is it conceivable that the U.S. could partner with Iran in the war against the Sunnis in Yemen, as it has essentially already done in Iraq and Syria?...

"There is nothing to warrant remaining silent about this American policy, because it is the main factor that generated the terrorism in Afghanistan. This terrorism further intensified following the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and it split [into several streams] as a result of the American silence in the face of the holocaust being perpetrated in Syria by means of the Russia-Iran alliance with the regime there. It is wrong [for us] to remain silent in light of a policy that is dragging the region into more destructive religious wars just because Mr. Obama aspires to reach an agreement with the Iranians..."

Iran shoots at "Iraqi Sunnis" and "Syrian Sunnis" with U.S. sponsorship (Al-Watan, Saudi Arabia, March 18, 2015) 

Obama's Policy On Iran Nuclear Issue – "Gambling With The Future Of The Region"

In a second article, Al-Dakhil again attacked Obama, arguing that the deal that he was trying to make with Iran was based on the groundless assumption that within a few years Iran was going to change. He added that Obama was gambling with the future of the region:

"President Obama's recklessness in reaching a nuclear agreement with Iran is manifested in the assumption on which he bases his justification of this agreement, and on the wording of the agreement that will apparently be agreed upon. The Israelis did well to expose the reckless aspect of this assumption, because with the exception of the five parties that are actually negotiating with Iran, it is they who know the most about the details of the American position on this issue. Israel is the Americans' closest and most important ally, and the one that is the most fearful about the upsetting of the balance of power [in the region] that will result if Iran or any Arab or Islamic country possesses nuclear weapons...

"Why does Obama consider it necessary to reach such an agreement? Because the president's objective is to tie the Iranians' hands for 10-15 years, in hopes that by then, Iran will have a new leadership, and will become a different country – perhaps a democratic country with less of a desire for nuclear weapons. Obama seems to be basing his policy on this risky issue on hope, not on political considerations; thus, he is gambling with the future of the region...

"At the same time, the Arab countries must deal with the other aspect of the American position, which is no less idiotic and dangerous. This aspect is reflected in Obama's response to events in the region – [a response] based on a nearly absolute belief that the danger currently threatening the world is Sunni extremism and the terrorism emanating from it, and that the only option for stabilization is through cooperation with Iran. It is nearly certain that this perception, along with the hope that Iran will change, is what is impelling Obama to reach an agreement with Iran.

"However, this perception is superficial and faulty – because it is based on dreams that are more like delusions, and it also wants to see only the Sunni side of the sectarian equation that is stirring up the region..."

Iranian Journalist: Proponents Of The Deal With Iran Rely On A Fatwa By Khamenei Nobody Has Ever Seen

Amir Taheri, a Paris-based Iranian author and journalist, argued in a similar vein that American proponents of the deal with Iran base their position on groundless assumptions, including on the claim that Khamenei issued a fatwa banning nuclear weapons – a fatwa that nobody has ever seen. The following are excerpts from a translation of his article published in the English edition of Al-Sharq Al-Awsat:  "Campaigning for a deal on the Iranian nuclear issue, the pro-mullah lobby in the West, especially in the United States, often cites three claims in support of President Barack Obama's appeasement of Tehran. The first is that a deal will help the 'reformist' wing of the regime led by former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani — which already controls the presidency through Hassan Rouhani — to capture other levers of power and embark on a genuine program of change aimed at returning Iran to normality. Rafsanjani is cast as a moderate, a turbaned version of Deng Xiaoping, capable of closing the chapter of the revolution and forging business-like relations with the U.S. Much is made of Rafsanjani's recent statements that he has always favored collective leadership and that once the Supreme Guide Ali Khamenei is shown the door, he would press for a collegial system and the end of 'one-man rule' in Iran."

Iranian Leader Khamenei: Death To America, Obama Is Trying To Turn Our People Against The Regime

In an address in Tehran on March 21, Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei responded to the crowd's chants of "Death to America" by saying: "Death to America, of course, because America is the principal element behind this pressure [i.e., the economic sanctions]." Khamenei said that Obama had said "some dishonest things" in his Nowruz address and that the American goal was "to turn the [Iranian] people against the system."

Following are excerpts from the address, which was broadcast on the Iranian news channel IRINN.

Ali Khamenei: "Death to America, of course, because America is the principal element behind this pressure. They are the ones who relentlessly focus on the economy of our beloved nation. Their goal is to turn the people against the system. They themselves say that they want to exert economic pressure, in order to exacerbate the situation of the people, so that they will be forced to protest against the government and the Islamic regime.

"They say this loud and clear. Obviously, they are lying when they say that they support the Iranian nation. Nobody should believe these lies of the enemy.


4838MTV B.jpg

"As for the nuclear issue, our enemies, the rivals of the Iranian nation, led by America, are adhering to a specific plan and policy. We can see this clearly. They know what they are doing. They need these negotiations. America desperately needs these nuclear negotiations.


"In his message [to the Iranian people] on the Nowruz holiday, the U.S. president said some dishonest things, I'm sad to say.


4838MTV D.jpg

"He said that there are people in Iran who refuse to accept a diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue. This is a lie. No Iranian opposes a resolution to the nuclear issue through negotiations. The Iranian nation will not accept the coercive dictates of the U.S. This is unacceptable.


"The negotiations with the U.S. are about the nuclear issue and nothing else. Everyone must know this. We are not negotiating with the U.S. about any regional issues. The goals of the U.S. regarding regional issues run counter to ours.


"The Americans keep saying that first they will sign an agreement with Iran, and that only after confirming that Iran is abiding by the agreement will they lift the sanctions. These fallacies are unacceptable.

"Lifting the sanctions is part of the negotiations, not a consequence of them. The people who are involved in this understand the difference full well. This is an American deception. They say: First, we will sign an agreement, then we will examine their conduct, and only then, we will lift the sanctions. It doesn't work this way.

"Just as our honorable president and officials said clearly, the sanctions must be lifted without delay when an agreement is reached."

Egyptian Islamist In Exile In Turkey: My Loyalty To Allah Outweighs My Loyalty To My Country

Egyptian Islamist Assem Abdel Maged, a leader of Al-Gama'a Al-Islamiyya living in exile in Turkey, said: "My loyalty lies with Allah and the Prophet Muhammad, and it is a much greater loyalty than loyalty to any country." His statements aired on February 25 on Rabea TV, a channel affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, broadcasting from Turkey.

Following are excerpts:

Assem Abdel Maged: "It is our Lord who will reward us in the Hereafter. Therefore, my loyalty lies with Allah and the Prophet Muhammad, and it is a much greater loyalty than loyalty to any country. Some might say that I am creating animosity and contradiction between religion and patriotism. No, I am not.


"But when a certain country is hostile to Allah and His Prophet, what am I to do? Should I side with my country's rulers for being hostile to Allah and the Prophet? Or should I act like the fools do and find justifications for them, as some riffraff and lowlifes do? They say: Al-Sisi is a great Islamic leader. You pig! You pig!

"Every now and again, he rust to the church – to his friends and his clan. You criticized Morsi for saying 'my family,' when he was referring to the entire Egyptian people. You said he was referring to the Islamist movements or the Muslim Brotherhood. By the way, even if that was what he was referring to – and it wasn't – if by 'my family,' he was referring to Muslims, it is better than someone who visits the church every couple of days, and acts according to the church's guidelines, instructions, and whims."

Islamic State (ISIS) Claims Responsibility For Tunis Museum Attack, Says It's Only The Beginning 

On March 19, 2015, the Islamic State (ISIS) released a statement taking responsibility for the deadly attack the previous day at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis.

ISIS praised the attack, calling it a "blessed raid" that targeted "one of the dens of unbelief and vice."

It also noted that the attack was carried out by two "knights of the caliphate state," whom it identified as Abu Zakariya Al-Tunisi and Abu Anas Al-Tunisi.

ISIS noted the attack's success despite the security measures in place, adding that the museum was inside the Tunisian parliamentary secure zone.


Jihadi Media Company Praises Tunisia Attack, Calls For More Attacks On Western Tourists

The following clip is a complimentary offering from MEMRI's Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.  

Following the deadly March 18, 2015 attack at the Bardo National Museum in Tunisia, in which 17 tourists and two Tunisians were killed, the Ifriqiyya media company, which is associated with jihad organizations in North Africa, released an article titled "Just Another Day Commentary on the Blessed Attack on Bardo Museum." The article states that the gunmen who carried out the attack, Yassine Laabidi and Hatem Khachnaoui, focused on killing infidels and "apostate" policemen and soldiers, and urges Muslims to carry out similar attacks, especially against tourists, with emphasis on French, British, American and Israeli nationals. It also suggests ways to kill tourists, suggesting to "drown them in the ocean, poison their food, bash their skulls with a rock, or suffocate them with pillows in their [hotel] rooms." It lists what is calls the great achievements of the attack, including the harm to Tunisia's tourism industry and economy, and threatens that additional attacks will be carried out soon, on unexpected targets throughout the country.

The following are excerpts from the article, which was posted on the jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam:  

"The article begins with a storybook-like description of the shooters on their way to the target site: "One ordinary sunny day with nice, clear weather, the two left their homes, boarded the metro, got off at a station where they changed to another [line], and then exited the metro. They passed the Bardo police station and the headquarters of the tyrannical military intelligence [apparatus]. Leaving the bags containing their guns at a bus stop, they entered [the museum] to check it out. They went back for their bags and [again] infiltrated [the area of] the apostate parliament and the museum. One of them took out the weapons and the grenades, while the other did a short preparatory tour... The policemen and presidential guards noticed that they were armed but were so amazed they froze on the spot. 'How did you enter so easily,' they asked in astonishment, and the two answered: 'We come in the name of Allah.' Then they began throwing grenades, crying 'Allah Akbar, and shooting at infidels and at the policemen that guarded them, and the massacre began."


ISIS In Sinai Urges Muslims To Wage Jihad Against Al-Sisi's Regime

On March 13, 2015, the information bureau of the Islamic State (ISIS) in "Sinai province" released a 12-minute video titled "Messages from the Land of Sinai".[1] In the video, posted inter alia on the jihadi forum Al-Shumoukh,[2] an unmasked ISIS fighter exhorts Muslims in Sinai, Egypt and all Muslim countries to shrug off their passivity and embrace jihad in order to escape the circle of discrimination and oppression. It should be noted that the fighter appears to be well-versed in Muslim scholarship, and his Arabic dialect suggests he is not an Egyptian.

The fighter begins his message by expounding on the issue of jihad, and quoting religious texts to show that every Muslim perform the duty of jihad in defense of the faith, as well as the duty of nafir (coming to the aid of Muslims in need). He attacks Muslim groups who believe that Allah can be worshipped through democracy or in every way except through jihad, as well as all Muslims who put up with oppression and refrain from coming our against the infidels and idolaters.


Islamic State (ISIS) Member Praises Australian Suicide Bomber

On March 16, 2015, Islamic State (ISIS) supporters published a eulogy by ISIS activist Qasura Al-Qaisi for Australian ISIS fighter Jake Bilardi, known as Abu Abdallah Al-Australi or Abd Al-Rahim Al-Australi, whom Al-Qaisi apparently knew personally.

A few days previously, Bilardi had carried out a suicide booming in the city of Ramadi, in Anbar province, Iraq, against Iraqi security forces.

In his eulogy, Al-Qaisi expressed anger that while Al-Australi, raised in an atheist family, had come from far away to defend Islam, many Muslims sit idle and do not lift a finger to help their people. 

Al-Australi setting out to carry out suicide bombing

Al-Qaisi began his eulogy by telling the life story of Al-Australi as he had learned from him. Al-Australi, he said, had grown up in an atheist family, an ambitious boy, good at school and beloved by his friends and family. Al-Australi had told Al-Qaisi that he had always wondered who created man and therefore had set out on a journey to find a religion in which he could believe. He had searched the Internet and compared the various religions, until "Allah gave him a gift" and he chose Islam. Al-Australi converted three years ago, Al-Qaisi said, despite his parents' grave objections. He had performed the Islamic prayers, had begun to be interested in jihad and martyrdom, and had followed news of the mujahideed on the Internet.  


ISIS In Libya Rallies Toubou Tribes, Urges Them To Join Its Ranks 

Abu Hamza Al-Tebawi

As part of its efforts to draw Muslims to join its ranks in Libya, the Islamic State (ISIS) released a video addressing the ethnic Toubou people, calling upon them to join the jihad under its banner.

The Toubou (also spelled Tebu) people are found mostly in northern Chad, but also in southern Libya and northeastern Niger.

During the Qadhafi era, the Toubou people faced great discrimination; however, following the Libyan revolution, they reportedly dominated Libya's southern desert, where they guarded oil fields and weapons stockpiles.

Speaking in a local dialect (accompanied by Arabic subtitles), a Toubou ISIS fighter named Abu Hamza Al-Tebawi addresses his people and urges them to join ISIS. "Your mujahideen brothers here are seeking to implement the shari'a of Allah... therefore, a Muslim should support his mujahideen brothers," he says.

French Website Hacked By ISIS Activist

The hacked website

Supporters of the Islamic State (ISIS) have been increasingly targeting French websites in their cyber-warfare efforts. On March 15, 2015, an online activist reported on the Jihad Media Platform (a pro-ISIS forum) that the website of another French company had been hacked by an ISIS supporter. The following are details:

The hacked site is Opalic.com, which belongs to a small investment and consulting company. It was targeted by a hacker who identifies himself as "MrDanger" and "Dark Master", a member of the "Supporters of the Islamic Caliphate" group.


On Twitter, Leading Pakistani Jihadist Groups Announce Unification With Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)

In a tweeted statement, three leading Pakistani Taliban organizations announced that they have merged in order to fight the "apostate Pakistani military."

"We congratulate the Muslim Ummah generally and the Pakistani mujahideen and people especially, and convey the good news that the strong jihadist organizations fighting against the Pakistani imperialist infidel democratic system and this apostate unpious army Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaatul Ahrar [TTPJA], Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan [TTP] and Tehreek Lashkar-e-Islam [LeI] have united under the single name of Tehreek-e-Taliban," the Urdu-language statement reads.

The statement was posted by Ehsanullah Ehsan, previously TTP spokesman and subsequently TTPJA spokesman. It is interesting to note that this not a coalition of the three organizations, even though the word "coalition" was mentioned by these groups in the English translation of their own statement which could be due to poor English. The statement, both in Urdu and English, clarifies that the three will work under the single name Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).


Urdu Daily: Pakistan Army, Local Taliban In North Waziristan Region Reach Deal

Screen grab of the report in Roznama Mashriq

According to an Urdu-language daily, the Pakistani Army and the local Taliban in the border district of North Waziristan have reached a deal, after a month of negotiations.

Roznama Mashriq, a Peshawar-based daily, reported that Maulvi Aleem Khan, the local Taliban commander in Datta Khel region of North Waziristan, confirmed in telephone calls to journalists that a deal had been agreed with the military, with the understanding of local elders and tribesmen.

Under the deal, Maulvi Aleem Khan has agreed to work "jointly" with the military against those who create law and order problems in the region. Khan said that his group's talks with the military took place at the home of a local tribal elder, and that tribal leaders played an important role.

Maulvi Aleem Khan served as several years as deputy to Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a Taliban commander known for his pro-government stance. However, in recent years Bahadur has been in the news for his anti-government positions.


Jihadis Hack Chinese Websites

On March 19, 2015, a post on Al-Fida' forum announced that jihadis belonging to the "Al-Qaeda Electronic Base" managed to hack seven Chinese websites.

The attacks, it said, were part of the group's ongoing war against Crusader, pagan, apostate, and atheist websites, and are aimed at "raising the banner of tawhid" over the compromised sites.


FROM THE JTTM ARCHIVES: Islamic State (ISIS) Social Media Pages Targeting Western Audiences


This report reviews the vast network of social media accounts that release and disseminate the message of the Islamic State (ISIS) organization, and forma central part of its outreach and recruitment mechanism. While in the past, jihadi groups published most of their materials on traditional media platforms, such as websites, forums and news agencies with which they are in contact, ISIS has pioneered the use of social media as the main means for spreading its message, and many of its supporters use this platform as well.

Production and Dissemination of Materials

ISIS oversees the issuing of its official materials, from production to distribution. The materials are produced and released by a small number of official outlets, but are propagated by a wide network of ISIS supporters making full use of the internet's capabilities, particularly freely-accessible social media platforms. ISIS takes advantage of the ethnic heterogeneity of its fighters and activists to address its supporters and threaten its enemies in their own tongues. For example, ISIS produces videos in which French-speaking fighters urge French-speaking sympathizers to help and/or join the organization, and also threaten the French authorities and people in French. Similar videos are also produced in German, English, Indonesian and other languages. For example, the videos showing the beheading of Western hostages, addressed directly to U.S. President Barack Obama, were all presented by a British jihadi speaking in English. The videos featuring British hostage John Cantlie are another good example of ISIS's media strategy of addressing the West in its own language and terms.

It should be stressed that, though the material is released in several languages, the message itself remains the same, regardless of the audience it is aimed at. Many materials in Western languages are produced by simply translating ISIS's Arabic materials, and original materials produced in Western languages also conform to the organization's standard rhetoric and ideals.

Most of the organization's messages and materials are produced and released by several official, centralized sources: non-Arabic materials by the media company Al-Hayat, and Arabic materials by the large media companies Al-Furqan, Al-I'tisam and Anjad, and by a network of local media companies serving the organization's various "provinces." The material is hosted on various file-sharing hosting platforms such as Archive.org or Just paste. it, and disseminated widely via a wide range of social media pages, using elaborate marketing strategies to obtain maximum visibility, such as pre-announcements of events or releases, and watermarking of images for distribution. Each release comes with a title and banner suitable for social media distribution: for instance, a recent ISIS video titled "Flames of War" as advertised days before its release with a slickly-produced Western-style trailer and banners. Many ISIS supporters remarked that the trailer reminded them of a Hollywood production.

Banner of the "Flame of War" video, released and produced by the official media company Al-Hayat

To enforce its policies and protect its interests, the organization often limits its members' access to internet resources. Members active on social media report that the organization has forbidden its fighters in Iraq to access the internet, and that some units are forbidden to use any electronic communication devices. Also, after the international coalition launched its intervention against ISIS, the organization imposed a media blackout to prevent the leaking of information that could betray the location of its fighters. The media blackout was extended to the use of any mobile devices in the city of Mosul and Kobane. ISIS considers the use of social media and other online activity while on the battlefield a tactical risk. A British ISIS fighter tweeted in October 2014 that ISIS had forbidden its members to give interviews to Western media, writing: "Producers, journalists and reporters asking for interviews, [know that] we're not allowed to interact with any media agency except our central media." The scarcity of non-ISIS news sources in the areas controlled by the organization, and ISIS's strict enforcement of its media policies, enable it to tightly monitor and control the information that filters out of Iraq and Syria.

The Al-Hayat Media Company

As part of its emphasis on targeting non-Arabic speakers, in May 2014 ISIS created a special media company for this purpose, Al-Hayat Media, which has already released numerous and varied materials in several languages. All recent ISIS material targeting the West including hostage execution videos, recruitment videos and official translations of messages by ISIS spokesman Adnani was released by Al-Hayat and stamped with its logo.


Changing Dynamics In The Global Jihad Movement (3): The Growing Presence Of ISIS In Libya 


On November 13, 2014, Islamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi announced the establishment of a new ISIS wilaya (province) in Libya and the appointment of a governor there. The new province is part of ISIS's recent expansion into several countries, including Algeria, Egypt (Sinai), Yemen, and Saudi Arabia, where groups of mujahideen recently swore fealty to the organization and its leader. Following Al-Baghdadi's announcement, ISIS and its supporters celebrated the establishment of this new province along with other recent expansions. ISIS supporters online launched hashtags such as #Wilayat_Barqa (Barqa Province), and in its English language magazine Dabiq, ISIS praised Libya as the country with "the strongest presence of the Islamic State" and claimed that "the larger cities [in Libya are] already being administered solely by [ISIS] leaders and soldiers."

Despite the signs of growing support for ISIS in Libya in recent months, and especially since Al-Baghdadi's announcement of the new province, little is actually known about the this province: How much territory it actually controls, the individuals or groups active there, or the identity of ISIS's appointed governor. In fact, it is difficult to verify whether the organization has extensive presence in Libya at all, due to the volatile situation in the country and the presence of numerous Islamist groups and militias on the ground.

Urdu Daily On The White House Summit On Countering Violent Extremism: 'Like A Sweet Thug, Obama Tried To Give An Impression That Attributing Terrorism To Islam Is Wrong'

Roznama Islam article

A recent article titled "How Naive Are These People!" written by Professor Shamim Akhtar has termed the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) as a festival of American cronies. The article, published in Pakistan's widely circulated Urdu language newspaper Roznama Islam, argued that if the U.S. is truly interested in ending terrorism it needs to stop "state terrorism" by Israel and India in Palestine and Kashmir, respectively.

Roznama Islam, known for its support for militant organizations, first started publishing in the early 1990s. At one time, it used to avoid publishing photographs of living creatures in keeping with Islamic values. It is published from seven cities of Pakistan: Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Multan, Quetta, and Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir.

"The Ground Is Being Prepared For Military Intervention … Sometimes On The Pretext Of Finishing Al-Qaeda, At Other Times Daesh [ISIS in Iraq and Syria], Boko Haram [In Nigeria], Or Ansar Al-Sharia [In Libya]"

"American President Barack Obama on February 19-20 organized a festival for the representatives of 60 client states in the White Palace [sic, House] to effectively fight an anti-terrorism war, [and] announced a strategy which was tantamount to putting old wine in a new bottle. However, like a sweet thug, Obama tried to give an impression that attributing terrorism to Islam is wrong because the religion Islam prohibits it [terrorism] and a majority of Muslims in the world are peaceful, but some elements – because of poverty, hardship, and injustices – are misled and driven to violence and subversion. To justify it [violence and subversion] they use religion; and such people do not only exist among Muslims, but in fact are found among the followers of other religions [as well].

"The participants of the conference, like servants of Obama, were seconding him by nodding their heads like a goat. Considering them [participants of the conference] as being likeminded, Obama proposed a worn-out prescription to deal with 'terrorism,' that it can not be eradicated by military actions only, and there is need to win the heart and minds of the local populations, so that the silent majority could be activated against extremism…

"We have been hearing from the days of the Cold War that to eliminate communist insurgency we need to win the hearts and minds of local people. But history is witness that Americans, instead of winning the hearts and minds of Vietnamese, kept dropping napalm bombs on their localities, their farms, and their jungles. Only one decade before [the Vietnam War] they were using poisonous gases against the Korean population. So, the American colonialist group retreated from North Korea and Vietnam after humiliating defeats.

"By gathering this type of meeting [i.e. the CVE], Obama is playing the drum like a footpath juggler. America, even after using nuclear radiation coated [depleted uranium] bullets and dropping napalm bombs in Iraq, and [dropping] daisy cutter bombs in Afghanistan, had to retreat from these countries. This drama [the summit on CVE] is being staged in the White House to establish its dominance in those countries. The ground is being prepared for military intervention in those countries – sometimes on the pretext of finishing Al-Qaeda, at other times Daesh [in Syria and Iraq], Boko Haram [in Nigeria] or Ansar Al-Sharia [in Libya]. To hide their looting intentions, they are talking of winning the hearts and minds of the people.  

"Though Obama has said that extremism has no link to Islam, all the organizations he has vowed to fight are the militias of Muslim militarists [i.e. militant groups]. Why has Obama not mentioned  [India's extremist Hindu organizations] Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Shiv Sena, Bajrang Dal, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, and Buddhist organizations of Sri Lanka and Burma, Christian militias of the Central African Republic, who every other day are committing genocide of Muslim minorities? Why is no need felt to [medically] treat the hearts and minds of these extremists?"

Palestinian Intellectual Praises Israeli Democracy: Palestinians Must Learn From Israel And Israeli Arabs How To Handle Controversy, Work For Benefit Of The Public

Following the recent Israeli elections, 'Imad Al-Falouji, head of the Gaza-based Institute for Intercultural Dialogue, wrote an article titled "Israel's Democracy and Our Anarchy." Falouji is a former Hamas member who left the movement in 1996 and later served as information minister and as an advisor under Yasser Arafat. In his article he praised Israel's way of handling controversy, and also praised the Israeli political parties for concerning themselves with the citizens' wellbeing and with domains such as economy, education and security; this, in contrast to Palestinian parties which, he said, are concerned mostly with political grandstanding and do not seek solutions to the people's everyday problems. He called upon the Palestinians to emulate the Israeli Arabs who united their ranks in order to bring about change.

The following are excerpts from his article:[1]

'Imad Al-Falouji (Image: Youtube.com)

"There is no shame in seeing reality as it is, and no wisdom in becoming experts [only] at cursing and disparaging our enemy. I know how difficult it is to compare the internal Palestinian situation,  our shaping of our policy, the internal relations among us and our ways of resolving our differences with the domestic situation of the enemy that is occupying our lands, usurping our holy sites, and denying our most minimal rights. But this enemy is proving to us and to the international community that, despite its tyranny and aggression, it surpasses us in many ways that are no longer hidden from any observer possessing a minimal degree of objectivity...

"Anyone examining the Israeli entity is amazed by the extent of internal disagreement on every issue between the religious and secular [sectors], and [also] by the disagreements within the sectors. They have a [political] right, center and left... and every perception has proponents and opponents and every senior has an [entire] dossier of charges against him. But, despite all this, they have passed laws that govern [the handling of] these disagreements and set out a common goal: that of serving the State of Israel and the people of Israel. They manage to use the internal disagreements as a source of strength...

"But we, 'the possessors of truth' look at what is happening to us. We strike out in every direction without an agreed-upon plan or purpose. Each party or group has its own plan and goal. We do not believe in a unifying means. We renounce all the laws and charters, and have destroyed everything that united us. Each group claims to possess the absolute truth and [presents] the others' [beliefs] as absolute lies. We do not possess the ability to listen to the other. Anarchy rules the day: political, economic, social and even conceptual anarchy.

"Let's look at the campaign platforms of the Israeli parties, and what they focused on. All of them agreed on the need to serve the people on the socio-economic level, promote employment, cultivate the family and solve its problems, eradicate unemployment, promote education and achieve security for all citizens. They do not focus so much on political sparring and on empty grandstanding.

"But in our [political arena], everyone talks about politics and general foreign-[policy] affairs, and only rarely does a party concern itself with improving the lives of the people and resolving the internal crises from which they suffer. Moreover, nobody proposes solutions to anything.

"I know this comparison is difficult and may anger those who refuse to face the bleak reality. But there is no alternative but to say these things. Perhaps some of us will wake up and take the opportunity to improve our situation. Our brothers the Palestinians inside [i.e., the Israeli Arabs] have set up a model of unity [by uniting all their political parties in the Knesset], and have thereby proved that we [Palestinians] are capable of change when we realize the danger, and that there is yet hope."

Prominent Saudi Journalist Al-Rashed: By Speaking Of Negotiating With Assad, Kerry Has Opened The Gates Of Hell Upon His Country

In a March 15, 2015 interview with CBS, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that it is important to achieve a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Syria and that the negotiations would have to involve Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.[1]

This statement sparked much criticism in the Arab press. An especially harsh response came from 'Abd Al-Rahman Al-Rashed, the former director of Al-Arabiya TV, who wrote in an article titled "Has Kerry Gone Mad"  that this is the worst thing Kerry has ever said. If Kerry thinks that he must ally himself with Assad in order to fight ISIS, Al-Rashed wrote, then he should know that his position will actually cause millions of Syrians to ally themselves with ISIS to fight Assad. Al-Rashed added that, if Kerry's position is meant to please Iran, the American government should think twice, because this position "subjects its interests to bigger threats and poses a threat to the region." He concluded that "Kerry has [opened] the gates of hell on himself and his country" in a region that is already furious at the U.S. for its silence over Assad's genocide and for its refusal to arm the Syrian opposition.

The following are excerpts from the article as published March 17, 2015 on  Al-Arabiya's English-language website.[2]


'Abd Al-Rahman Al-Rashed

"I don’t understand how an official like the U.S. Secretary of State says that Bashar al-Assad can be accepted because he needs him in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). John Kerry’s statement is enough to push millions of people here to support ISIS. If Kerry’s excuse is that he will cooperate with Assad because he [Assad] despises ISIS, then millions of Syrians will cooperate with ISIS because they despise Assad.

"And these Syrian people’s justifications are greater than Kerry's excuse. The Assad regime, aided by his allies - the Iranians and Hezbollah [has] killed more than a quarter of a million people. It’s impossible for them to reconcile with [Assad] regardless of what the American justifications are.

"Does the U.S. Secretary of State think that millions of Syrians will be silent and forget about the massacres and displacement which have befallen them just because Kerry [has] decided to ally with the devil [in order] to fight another devil? Despite his many slips, Kerry's latest statements were his worst. This is regardless of whether they were simply made to please Iran into signing a nuclear deal or whether they were the result of advice by his advisers who care little about the plight of the Syrian people. 

"The fundamental rule in the fight against ISIS is [to] make sure it is confronted locally. This can be done by getting regional people together to cooperate, since ISIS poses a shared threat to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Without regional cooperation, no one will be able to defeat terrorist groups, which attract volunteers and donors with claims of standing against [a] tyrant! How can the region’s governments convince their citizens otherwise, when the U.S. Secretary of State publicly announces that he [is willing to] negotiate with and accept the worst regime the region has known - especially when this regime has done worse than Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq and worse than Moammar Qaddafi’s regime in Libya?

"If the aim of his statement is to please the Iranians, the American government must think twice, because this harms everything it has built over long decades. And it also subjects its interests to bigger threats and poses a threat to the region. In the end, the U.S. will get nothing but more regional problems from the Iranians, the Syrian regime and Hezbollah.

"Kerry has [opened] the gates of hell on himself and his country in an angry region, most of [whose] people feel that Obama’s administration has been silent over daily crimes of genocide in which forbidden chemical weapons have been used, and has also prohibited arming the opposition with qualitative weapons, and now [it] wants to reconcile with murderers in broad daylight."

Pakistani Taliban Commander And Jihadi Editor, Recently Returned From UK, Killed By U.S. Drone; British Islamist Anjem Choudary's Tribute To Him Reveals Personal Association

The following report is a complimentary offering from MEMRI's Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.  

Anjem Choudary tweets his tribute to Dr. Tariq Ali

A series of tweets and a tribute from leading British Islamist Anjem Choudary have revealed that a Pakistani army surgeon who sought asylum in the UK, worked at a hospital in London, treated jihadis in the UK, and returned in 2014 to join the Pakistan Taliban has been killed.

Dr. Tariq Mirza Ali, who had assumed the pen name Abu Obaidah Al-Islamabadi, joined Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaatul Ahrar (TTPJA) after returning to Pakistan, and began editing the group's newly launched English-language magazine Ihya-e-Khilafat ("Revival of the Caliphate"), aimed at recruiting jihadi youths from Western countries. Two issues of the magazine were published,

According to Anjem Choudary's tribute (below), Dr. Tariq Ali was killed March 12 in a U.S. drone attack. The tribute in English is dated March 13, and was published the same day on Justpaste.it. Anjem Choudary reveals sufficient details that his tributes could be used by British intelligence services to prosecute him in court for promoting jihad.

On March 12, Ehsanullah Ehsan, the spokesman of TTPJA, tweeted that Dr. Tariq Ali (on right in image below) and another leading Taliban commander Maulana Shakeel Ahmed Haqqani were killed. The same day, Ehsan warned in another tweet: "We are proud of the martyrdom of our brothers. InshAllah we will take the revenge from the enemy." A March 13 tweet by @shariah4pak noted that Dr. Tariq Ali was killed in Afghanistan.


Following is the text of Anjem Choudary's tribute to Dr. Tariq Ali:

"As Soon As I Heard The Incredible Tale Of How Tariq Had Escaped From Pakistan And Sought Asylum In Britain It Was Obvious That This Story Had To Be Told And I Asked Tariq To Make A Video Clip"

"I first met Dr. Tariq Ali in Ramadhan 2012 in London, when he sat in a talk that Abu Izzadeen and I were giving just before Iftar in Regents Park Mosque. He told me afterwards that he first saw me in 2005 on BBC Newsnight following the 7/7 attacks and that he had always wanted to meet me. Once we were acquainted, I soon realised that Tariq Ali was no ordinary Muslim but rather in many respects an extremely exceptional one. Here was a man who refused to take orders when he was a Captain in the Pakistan army to fight against the Taleban because he feared dying at the hands of mujahideen and going to the hellfire, despite the risk of himself being court marshalled and facing the firing squad.

"As soon as I heard the incredible tale of how Tariq had escaped from Pakistan and sought asylum in Britain, it was obvious that this story had to be told, and I asked Tariq to make a video clip. In characteristic manner Tariq initially said that he was shy and had never done this before, but later that same day I received a call from Tariq saying that in fact he would do it. The subsequent clip was quite simply amazing in the sense [that] not only did Tariq relate his story in articulate detail but he also sent a strong message to others in the Pakistan army not to die apostates by fighting against Muslims at the request of the U.S."

Reporter: "Muhammad Nidalha is a broken man two times over. His son Rida was originally in the mafia, but two months after meeting some extremists, he underwent a change, and left for Syria, where he joined ISIS."

Muhammad Nidalha, Father of Dutch ISIS fighter: "He said to the mafia: 'I won't be working with you again.' They threatened to slaughter him if he stopped working with them. He was afraid, so he came to me and told me that he had a problem. I told him that I had a solution. I'd take him to my brother in Belgium. I took him there. Then he told me that he had started to go to a mosque. I said to him: Fine, no problem. He started growing a beard. I said to him: If you want to go to mosque, that's fine, but you don't go to fight in Syria. He said to me: 'I won't, Papa. I want to get married and have kids.' A week later, he left for Syria."

Reporter: "When the son left for Syria, the family, which lives in Holland, was devastated."

Muhammad Nidalha: "It's been very difficult for me. I was taken to hospital twice in an ambulance. It has been extremely stressful. It has affected his mother a lot. She can't sleep. She thinks about him 24 hours a day. It affected her more than me. Women tend to be affected more. She has a serious problem. She had to go to a psychiatrist."

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb Following Paris Attacks: People Who Do Not Respect The Law Can Go Live At The North Pole

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb recently said, with regard to the Paris attacks and the threat of further terrorism in Europe, that people who live here but do not want to respect the law should go live somewhere else - like the North or South Pole. The interview aired on Alaan TV on February 27, 2015.

Following are excerpts:

Ahmed Aboutaleb: "What happened in Paris could happen in any other city in Europe or the world. We must not forget that prior to the Paris attacks, more than 100 children were executed in Pakistan. Their only 'sin' was that they were the children of Pakistani soldiers. These criminals fear nothing, and are capable of carrying out such attacks anywhere in the world.


"Any [Muslim] who wants to stay here and live with us must respect the law, which applies to people of all races and religions. As I have always said, people who are here, but do not want to live with us or respect the law, must do some soul-searching. If you want to stay among us, you must respect the law. Otherwise, perhaps you can live somewhere else in the world - Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, the Pacific Ocean, the North Pole, the South Pole..."

Iranian Leader Khamenei: A Society Steeped In The Spirit Of Martyrdom Is Unstoppable; Khamenei's Representative In IRGC Qods Force: We Shall Not Rest Until We Raise Flag Of Islam Over The White House

In statements on February 26, 2015, both Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Ali Shirazi, his representative in Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) elite Qods Force, stressed the need to instill the values of jihad and martyrdom in Iranian society, and reiterated the ideological principles of the Islamic Revolution – enmity towards the U.S. and opposition to American hegemony and the existing world order.

At a closed meeting, Khamenei urged daily dissemination of the culture of martyrdom and jihad in society, and enshrining it as an eternal truth and as a necessary sacrifice on the path towards long-term goals. He explained that this would inoculate Iranian society against defeat, rendering its enemies unable to halt its progress. He also stressed Iran's role as the standard bearer of opposition to the existing world order, and as a country that could stand fast against the U.S. despite the latter's technological advantages, thanks to its revolution that relies on God's support.

Ali Shirazi, speaking at a ceremony attended by families of martyrs, emphasized that Iran would persist in fighting the U.S. until it had "rais[ed] the banner of Islam over the White House." He too praised the culture of martyrdom as a supreme value, and noted that it had spread to many countries in the Islamic world, including Nigeria, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and Yemen. This, he said, showed that the Islamic Revolution had penetrated deep into these countries and had become a model for emulation across the region. Shirazi added that Iran was determined to avenge the January 18, 2015 killing in Quneitra of IRGC Gen. Mohammed 'Ali Allahdadi and the Hizbullah commanders, and that Hizbullah's operation against Israel in late January 2015 was only the beginning of this vengeance.

Below are the main points of both speeches:

Ali Khamenei

Khamenei: We Must Instill Every Day The Culture Of Martyrdom And Jihad In Iranian Society

In his February 26, 2015 statements, Khamenei said: "It is necessary to praise the martyrs and to keep them from being forgotten, and to keep the ethical values [embodied by] their memory from becoming obsolete. Gatherings that honor the martyrs are in effect a continuation of the movement of jihad and martyrdom. Every day in Iranian society, we must disseminate the martyrs' memory, and the milestones of their lives. If the memory of the martyrs and the value of martyrdom are presented in society as eternal truth, defeat loses its meaning, and this nation will move fearlessly along the path of progress.

"The Iranian nation's great mission is to reject the erroneous division of the world into rulers and ruled. Although the rulers are currently able to tighten their grip on the oppressed because of their many resources, an [opposing] identity called the Islamic Revolution, which anchored in divine and moral foundations, has proudly arisen and is bravely standing fast against the power[-seeking] order.

"The Islamic Revolution is steadily moving upwards, and the enemies cannot halt its progress. During the Iran-Iraq War, some believed that sending students to the front line would empty the universities and damage the country's scientific progress. But it turned out that the blessings of martyrdom and jihad on the divine path are so plentiful that these efforts made science in [our] country a source of pride today – and it is [even] more advanced than other areas.

"It is vital to keep the martyrs' names and the culture of martyrdom alive. This is one of the country's basic needs. The culture of martyrdom is a culture of self-sacrifice for the sake of long-term goals – goals shared by the entire nation and by all mankind. This culture is precisely the opposite of Western individualist culture, that measures everything according to individual and material considerations. If the culture of sacrifice and martyrdom spreads through a society, that society will progress and will never stop or retreat."[i]

Khamenei's Representative In Qods Force: 'We Will Not Rest Until We Raise The Banner Of Islam Over The White House'

Addressing a February 26, 2015 ceremony attended by families of Iranian martyrs who fell on the Syrian front, Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative in the IRGC's Qods Force, said: "The most sublime [source of] pride for the martyrs and their families is that on Judgment Day they will stand before the Prophet, raise their heads in pride, and say: 'True, we did not live in your era... but today, at a time when the enemies wanted to attack Islam and Ahl Al-Bayt [the Shi'ite Muslim community], and fought our faith and our religion, our sons stood bare-chested against the enemies' bullets, fought valiantly, and did not allow them to push back the boundary of Ahl Al-Bayt.' This is the greatest badge of honor for you, the martyrs' families.

"When we look at the Islamic world, we see that the culture of the Islamic Revolution has reached all countries and all Muslims throughout the world. This is why love of martyrdom is spreading. This has come about thanks to the blood of your [sons,] the martyrs.

"Today, in every country we look at worldwide, we see that the love of martyrdom is spreading like wildfire every day. For example, Nigeria, which once had seven million Shi'ites, now has 20 million Shi'ites. The Jerusalem Day marches in the Nigerian cities were attended by six million people, [including] the leader of the Shi'ite [community] in Nigeria, who participated in the march with his entire family; [during this march,] three of his children were killed before his eyes and had become martyrs...

"The exact same thing is happening in Syria and Lebanon. Recently, six Hizbullah commanders were attacked by the Zionist enemy on Syrian soil – the son of 'Imad Mughniyah, and the Iranian general Allahdadi were among them. Mughniyah's family gave its fourth martyr. Jihad Mughniyah's brother brought the news of his death to his mother... She said 'go bring my bag.'... She opened it, took out some shrouds and said: 'I didn't send Jihad [to the front] so that he would return safely, I sent him so he would return as a martyr. I prepared shrouds for him.' I saw the same spirit in you too, families of martyrs. [I saw] your spirit of valor and self-sacrifice in Syria in defense of the places sacred to Ahl Al-Bayt. [I saw you], with all your love, praying and weeping for [the sake of] martyrdom…"

Hamas Rejects Quartet Representative Blair's Demands: 'We Will Not Give Up Our Principles As Part Of Solving The Problems Of Gaza Residents'

On February 15, 2015, Quartet representative Tony Blair visited the Gaza Strip and presented a series of demands to Hamas for advancing the Israeli-Palestinian political process and for rebuilding Gaza. The most important of these demands was that Hamas accept the two-state solution as an end to the conflict; by doing so, Hamas will in effect meet the Quartet's conditions – abandoning terrorism, honoring previous agreements, and recognizing Israel.

Blair further demanded that Hamas clarify whether it is "a Palestinian nationalist movement dedicated to the achievement of a Palestinian State or part of a broader Islamist movement with regional designs that impact governments outside of Gaza" (i.e., the MB).

Calling on the Palestinians to implement the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement, Blair spoke of the need to open the crossings so that Gaza could be reunited with the outside world. He also asked Israel to support the rebuilding of Gaza and to open the Israel-Gaza crossings, and asked Egypt to take the lead in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Hamas officials and writers on websites that are close to Hamas rejected Blair's demands outright, claiming that they posed a danger to the Palestinian cause and stressing that even if Hamas did agree to a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, it would neither relinquish its rights nor recognize Israel. As for the demand that Hamas clarify its identity, some argued that Hamas was a Palestinian movement, while others stated that it was part of the Islamic ummah.

Blair in Gaza (Source: Amad.ps, February 15, 2015)

The following are excerpts from Blair's statements and from responses by Hamas officials and columnists.

Blair's Requests, Demands To Hamas, Israel, And Egypt 

During his Gaza visit, Blair presented the Quartet's position on the political process; on improving the lives of the Palestinians, particularly in Gaza; and on the role that Israel, Egypt, the Palestinian Authority (PA), and Hamas should play regarding these issues.

In his meeting with members of the Palestinian national consent government and representatives from the public and private sectors, Blair said that the achievement of peace was based on the following: "First, a dramatic and broad improvement in the daily lives of Palestinians; second, a unified Palestinian politics on a basis that explicitly is in favor of peace and two states, meaning a sovereign State of Palestine and a secure, accepted State of Israel; and third, an enhanced role for the region, in alliance with the international community, which must step up to share leadership of the issue."  

Blair underlined the need for paying PA employee salaries and for arriving at agreements regarding vital Gaza infrastructure such as power, water, and housing, and added: "We need change in Gaza to open it up and reconnect it with the world. For that to happen, we need reconciliation in Palestinian politics, and for reconciliation to happen, we need unity to be on a basis which supports peace."

Some of Blair's demands were aimed at Hamas: "The international community needs clarity from Hamas: are they a Palestinian nationalist movement dedicated to the achievement of a Palestinian State or part of a broader Islamist movement with regional designs that impact governments outside of Gaza? Are they prepared to accept a Palestinian State within 1967 borders or not, with such a State being a final settlement to the conflict? If they are, that would allow the international community to promote reconciliation alongside reconstruction.

"Egypt has to be given credible guarantees about its own security, as it is affected by Gaza, with assurances that Gaza will not be used as a base for terrorist activity in Sinai and that there will be cooperation with the government of Egypt to prevent it."

Blair also presented demands to Israel, Egypt, and the PA: "The Gaza crossings should be opened in such a way to facilitate the movement of people and goods so that Gaza can be reunited with the outside world and its economy able to grow. Israel should also do all that it can to assist reconstruction and to open up Gaza crossings to allow the maximum amount of material in; and to avoid returning to the destruction of three conflicts in six years. Egypt should then lead the negotiation about the long-term future of Gaza, including around issues such as the airport and seaport as was envisaged by the agreement to end the recent conflict. This Gaza plan should be part of a wider agreement after the new government of Israel is established, which should have at its core the dramatic improvement of Palestinian life on the West Bank. This in turn could pave the way for Palestinian elections and the resumption of a proper negotiation for the resolution of the peace process."

Hamas Officials: We Will Not Recognize Israel

Hamas officials rejected Blair's demands, which they saw as preconditions for the rebuilding of Gaza, and said that the movement would not relinquish its principles. Thus, for example, Hamas official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar told a website close to Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) that Blair was adopting Israel's positions and that Hamas rejected such conditions, particularly accepting the two-state solution as an end to the conflict: "Hamas and the resistance factions will not relinquish principles in order to solve the daily problems that afflict Gazans. We cannot accept Tony Blair's conditions, because they are very dangerous for the Palestinian cause. Any Palestinian element that accepts Blair's messages and conditions, including Hamas, would be making a grave error and committing a historic crime that could never be forgiven... We are prepared for a state in the '67 borders, but we will recognize neither Israel nor its ownership of a single inch of Palestine. Making the restoration of Gaza conditional upon ending the conflict is cheap haggling that is unacceptable to Hamas, and Hamas has alternatives in this matter."

Al-Aqsa Mosque Sheikh Rebukes Pakistan For Not Launching Nuclear Strike To Help Establish Caliphate: 'America Will Be Trampled By The Hooves Of The Horses Of The Caliph Of The Muslims, Allah Willing'

This video-clip contains two addresses at the Al-Aqsa Mosque delivered by preacher Muhammad Abed ("Abu Abdallah") on March 6 and 13, 2015. He rebuked Pakistan, asking: "Why do some generals, who have the ability to change history with one swift blow, refrain from doing so?" America, he said, would be "trampled by the hooves of the horses of the Caliph of the Muslims."

March 6, 2015

Sheikh Muhammad Abed "Abu Abdallah": "Oh how similar to the past is the present! Just like the ideology of the Prophet Muhammad laid siege to the Quraysh tribe, the Persians, and the Byzantines, today, the religion and ideology of Muhammad – including Islam's men of Truth, the men of the Caliphate and of jihad – are laying siege to America, despite its nuclear arsenal. They are laying siege to Europe and to the fabricated democracy, the great lie. They are constantly publishing new statements. They claim that they have come to fight the Islamic State organization, which they call ISIS – the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. But they bomb Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Muslims in Syria. They are bombing the very idea of a Caliphate, which has taken root among the people of Syria, Iraq, and the other Muslim lands.


4830MTV A.jpg

"Oh nation of Islam, only a real Caliphate is capable of satiating your hunger, of defending you and your honor, and of liberating your Al-Aqsa Mosque form the filth of the defilers. 


Oh nation of Islam, listen to the advice. You are our nation. Oh army of Pakistan, you are a nuclear army. Why do some generals, who have the ability to change history with one swift blow, refrain from doing so? They have nuclear weapons."


March 13, 2015

Sheikh Muhammad Abed "Abu Abdallah": "Oh rulers of Tehran, do you think that you were given a free hand in Syria, in Yemen, in Lebanon, and in Iraq, just because you are so likeable? Do you think that America loves you more than it loves Israel?


4830MTV B.jpg

"Iran has become the most important country to America, because America knows full well that the Caliphate is near, and that it will be terrible and mighty, and that if it is established, Allah willing, it will reach their strongholds in all the capitals of the West. That is why they are using Shi'ite Iran to strike at the enterprise of the Sunni Muslims.

"Enough with your stupidity! You will never become an empire, oh rulers of Iran! You will never be a country in the Islamic world, because you were created to serve as a dagger in the side of the nation, and down the throat of the Caliphate. This is what you were created for – in the past and in the present. I advise you to snap out of your illusions.


4830MTV C.jpg

"America will be trampled by the hooves of the horses of the Caliph of the Muslims, Allah willing. This is the promise of Allah. Where will you be when it is being fulfilled? [Oh rulers of Iran], you will fall. You will not be saved."

Interviewer: "You mean the former Qatari prime minister?"

Nabil Sharaf Al-Din: "Yes, him."

Interviewer: "Were these recordings made outside Qatar?"

Nabil Sharaf Al-Din: "Yes, in London. He was caught on tape in London, and the Israeli intelligence found out. That's how the CIA later recruited him."


Retired Egyptian General Mahmoud Mansour: "Where is the Iranian shah today? Didn't America sell him out?! It will sell you out too, Sheik Tamim, along with the entire House of Khalifah. They will bring over someone even more despicable than you to run Qatar. He will be even less than a shoe. He will be a plastic flip-flop shower shoe, worn by America."
