Gruesome Footage Of ISIS Atrocities Reveals Al Qaeda Jihadists "Will Stop At Nothing"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Judging by the gruesome propaganda video being released by ISIS, it is no wonder the Iraqi soldiers and police stripped off uniforms and ran... As The Daily Mail reports, blood-thirsty jihadists are carrying out summary executions on civilians, Iraqi soldiers and police officers - including 17 in one street alone - on their warpath to Baghdad, the UN said today. As a shocking picture of the ISIS insurgency continues to develop, the Islamist group are posting barbaric videos online with the intent of showing the world they will stop at nothing to achieve their end game. The aim is to terrorise Sunnis in Iraq's army and police forces and deepen their already low morale. It appears to be working as that fear is one factor behind the stunning collapse of Iraqi security forces.

Via The Daily Mail,

In one, which is too graphic to publish, fighters are seen knocking on the door of a Sunni police major in the dead of night.

When he answers, they blindfold and cuff him. Then they carve off his head with a knife in his own bedroom as sweetly lilting religious hymns are played over the top.

Shock and awe: An ISIS propaganda video shows militants blindfolding a Sunni police major in his home before cutting off his head

Shocking: Footage reportedly taken by ISIS militants shows Islamist fighters randomly shooting pedestrians and motorists as they take over towns and cities in Iraq

Armed with a machine-gun, the gang film themselves shooting cars off the road then move in to video close-ups of the victims' blood-stained bodies slumped in the seats. In another clip, they gun down a pedestrian.

Video of the civilian killings

Sabre-rattling: An Islamic militant issues a call to arms, saying: 'Declare Allah the Greatest! Allah is the Greatest!' in a video released by ISIS

An explosion as militants of ISIS allegedly seize an Iraqi army checkpoint in the northern Iraqi province of Salahuddin

A man is executed in a propaganda video released this morning by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as the Al Qaeda-inspired militants continue their march towards Baghdad

ISIS Propaganda video... (gruseome)

and the full uncensored compilation of horror...

Where we stand...

Because...

Rebels “offer the best alternative to terrorists and brutal
dictators,”
the president said. Now it’s up to Congress to
support the idea of and green-light more aid, as is stipulated in
the War Powers Act.

 

http://rt.com/news/164536-syria-rebels-supplied-lethal/

Gas pipelines from Qatar through Syria to Europe have nothing to do with it.

“The past five years have demonstrated that the U.S. president does not
have any ethical dimension for his foreign policy - Syria is one example
- let alone the question of intervening to uphold the principle of
non-aggression against a sovereign state.”

For more US trained killers.

reports coming in from ukraine that the junta guys there are still shelling civilians (even though the chocolate king promised an end to the violence) 

rumours indicate chemical weapons to be used in Peoples Republic of Donetsk against civilian and resistance targets with attacks against civilian targets in central and west Ukraine. Unconfirmed reports state Ambassador J. Pyatt of USA knows of this plan. Operations are scheduled for 3 to 5 days from 12 June 2014. Resistance army is to be implicated in chemical and terror attacks.

All Americans should be *hair on fire* angry about this.

Now 5000 guys with a cause come along and they fold like wet noodles. Why are there not huge protests in the streets of America, bringing to justice each and every politician who sold this lie to us, and then perpetuated it. They KNEW this business of smashing a country to bits and then rebuilding it was a total and complete waste of time money and our national prestige.

Right, if you drive by cars and pedestrians and mow people down with machine gun fire while shouting "god is great", you're an animal. If you mow dow cars and pedestrians with a multi million dollar jet fighter or drone from either a few kilometers or few thousand kilometers while proclaiming jesus is the saviour you're the bastion of civilization.

Everyone who own shares in Raytheon, Northrop Gruman, Hewlett Packard, Tyco etc etc etc etc are as evil as these insurgents, militants, terrorists or whatever the hell you want to call them because you own a tiny part of everyone of those jet fighters, bombs and other assorted military hardware.

It really is time for that asteroid to put the earth out of our misery.

we, more precisely both parties of the u.s. government, own the atrocities, the shame and the blame.  this brilliant idea was hatched by the project for the new american century, founded by victoria nuland's husband robert kagan and that other zionist william kristol.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Century

victoria, as you may remember, recently tried similar tricks in the ukraine.  she worked for bush; she works for obama. israel runs u.s. foreign policy and has since lyndon johnson and the six days war.

Now we should just give every man, woman and child a rifle and a few clips.  In a week the place will be deserted.  Maybe the Chinese can build more vacant cities, or the Japs can evacuate there when fukushima blows again.

If you want to really get back at these whack jobs then use a 21st century version of Pershing in the Phillipines. 

Catch some radical scum and then video their execution of them being sown into the carcass of a pig and thrown to a pack of hungry dogs. Then splice that footage into all the jihadi videos out there. Every time some teenage juhadi wannabe sees a jihadi video they will see their fate. Most will want to avoid that fate and those who still want "matrdym" would have gone down that path anyways. 

Also every body of a suicide bomber should get that same pig carcass fate. No self respecting 72 virgins would want a matyr smelling of pig shit.

Is this a serious question? Funded and paid for by America, half your cities have the same sort of drive-by warfare, grotesque violence just uses different weaponry, and you're calling for the justice of 'every eye for an eye.'

Is the grotesqueness alright if you don't have to look at it and the executioners have a similar complexion?

America and most of the modern nations were founded on similar violence, they just used different weapons. That will have to be rectified if we are ever to live in communities that do not rely on similar forms of violence.

Hi Miffed - Your comments are always on target, intelligent and informed. Seeing these photos and videos makes me wonder what similar shots of the Spanish Inqusition at work would look like? Or perhaps a few videos from the American Civil War (either side). Hey - what about a few videos of Japanese troops misbehaving in China? Or maybe a few candid  shots on board slave ships heading for America. Then of course we do have quite a few videos of US troops winning hearts and minds in Vietnam - but in that case it is probably the videos and photos that we haven't seen that would come closest to the current atrocities in Iraq. And finally ( not really - the list goes on and on) let's not forget those Irish convents with garbage piles full of newborn babies out back. Wouldn't those photos be sensational?

It's a good thing God/Allah/etc is watching over all this or things could get really bad.

Fri, 06/13/2014 - 19:10 | 4855193 Againstthelie

Haven't read through all comments, but what I find disturbing, is that everyone, including ZH is accepting the thesis, these were just civilians.

My impression is, they were very selectively aproaching certain cars.

In one example witht he two men walking besides the street, they clearly only shot at one, while they didn't shoot at the other.

I also couldn't see any women or children being shot.

And at the end of one video, a photo of a soldier is inserted, showing the previously killed "civilian".

 

Maybe this is a night of long knives and the globalist media is spinning it again, for another "intervention to restore peace"?

 

And since this is spread by globalist media, I'm also missing the necessary scepticism regarding the source. Where were the Ziomedia, when really awful things happened in Syria by the forces they equipped?

 

Black propaganda has been the globalist's speciality: one doesn't have to go back to their incredible Anti-Nazi propaganda. More recently their black propaganda against Iraqi soldiers killing babies, or in former Yugoslavia, the "concentration camp" movies.

I don't say such things do not happen, but one should forget what is claimed and carefully watch what he really can see. And what is shown in some cases obviously does not fit to the story being told.

This is an interesting thesis.  I didn't watch the videos... because I am not that into seeing the base nature of humanity.

If your observations are true... how does it play out?

ISIS (Egyptian god of the throne - Current President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi [ISIS backwards... remember Operation ORTSAC?]) 

ISIS invades Iraq, America has to intervene, pushes ISIS to the Syrian border, with constant "clashes" at the border (real pawns will die for effect) which "forces" the US to invade Syria to protect Iraq from islamic extremists that the US is funding and supplying...

Problem-Reaction-Solution. Interesting thesis, too.

But I think it is a bit far fetched, because then it would not be true, that ISIS was controlling big parts of Iraq.

I believe it's simpler: First ISIS was equipped and supported by the US and the Saudis in Syria. But Syria didn't work out. So now these forces are turning against the vassals in Iraq.

The fact that someone takes the money or is equipped by the globalists, does not necessarily mean, that he is their agent. To reach goals, you need money. Hitler needed the money, but he followed his own plan. Stalin took the money but also was not their agent. Saddam took the money and also followed his own plan. And the same probably is true for the insurgents in Iraq now.

I believe for the globalists things have spinned out of control and they are standing in front of the rubble of their criminal and shortsited foreign policy.

So now the Ziomedia are simply spinning the development to make the sheeple in the West accept another open war and bombing. But I believe they do not have the initiative anymore. This is only reacting to keep things falling apart and not going according to plan.

If the Saudis are supporting ISIS, the relationship between USA and Saudi Arabia will become not better and very interesting to observe, what that means for the status of the dollar as petrodollar.

Did "Brits" hold the torch and passed it over, or has the globalist centre been moved from London to New York and more or less the same forces are ruling?

Haven't viewed the videos either but this sure sounds like something "weird."

Sunni? Shite? Regime? Syrian?

My first and only thought remains "Saudi/Israel" and the whole thing is kinda meaningless.

If this is Assad however...and "Russia"...meh.

There has been zero reporting on "over there"...I've tried to listen to that dude on CNN...he's just another shill near as I can tell.

Tet was a tactical victory for the US...but the strategic situation was always hopeless.

That's not true in the M...E...

If this is a tactical mistake there is no jungle to run back to out there.

"Summertime" too. That ain't no 'merican desert. If the folks of Baghdad are in your corner you're in a really good way over there.

And if the US and Iran are now Allies that would be truly earth shattering.

There is indeed much to be said that "Iraq is a contrivance" if that's the case. (Baghdad is not however.)

Throw in "Kurdistan" and an Angry King of Jordan...even Egypt?

Why not boots on the ground?

If 9/11 really was a plot hatched Over There then our objective is in fact the House of Saud.

"That's a lot of money on the table."
And a lot of protection.

It's been over ten years now that Iraq is plunged into bloody conflict. During that time the entire generation of young men (and considering Middle Eastern youth bulge that's many young men) was raised to only see cruelty, death and chaos and human blood being cheaper than water. For them death is very trivial, something they witness on a daily basis and get used to. They are humans who are turned into murderers by the war around them, they didn't have a chance to know any better most of the time. Also, it has little to do with religion.

I posted this once as I will post it again - ITS "Khalifate", thank you.
Caliphate , besides sounding unlike the correct pronunciation, has it's
origins in the orientalist understanding of Islam which is inherently
flawed since one can not behold Islam properly while observing it without
right through the distorted lens of kufr. Your western-logic has failed
you in that you all repeatedly exhibit the shared inability to get basic
words right. It is Khalifate, not Caliphate which is the equivalent of the
orientalists spelling of Musselman for Muslims or Koran for Al-Qur'aan.
It is not the CIA, nor Tony Blair, who rightfully defines what is Islaam,
but rather the Muslims have the mandate of telling the world about Allah
ta 'ala. How can you ever expect to grasp, let alone understand reality,
when rather than go to the hearts of the experts of a particular field of
research (in this case the 'Ulama of Islaam), you insist on defining and
teaching it, as if you are the most qualified to speak on the matter,
regardless of what the history books and dictionaries say. It is self
delusion on a massive scale and the only victims you manage to hoodwink
are your own westernized kufr-infatuated souls! The Muslims are in no way
whatsoever affected by what you (Tony Blair and crew who insist there are
"good Muslims") fool themselves as to what reality and history are.
The Muslims are not in need of your opinions or fancies on any matter as
we have the Immutable Shari'ah of Haqq before us, ready to be acted upon
(not interpreted as keep claiming).

You attach "al-Qaida" to everything that puts up a fight yet - It is no
well kept secret that al-Qaida's twisted Wahabbi ghayr-Muqallid
Frankenstein mutant understanding of The Deen (religion), which has
unfortunately become attached to Islam these days, is an out-of-control
blowback resultant of the zionist european anti-Jewish conspirators
mechanism originally hatched centuries ago to destroy Standard Moderate
Islaam as taught by Prophet Muhammad salalahualayheewasalam and maintained by the Umma for 1435 years up unto today. These Europeans ultimately hate, not crime or terror, but Emaan (faith in Islaam). Patrick and others like him need to realize that while all Muslims ultimately strive to establish an Islamic State, and indeed to return to the Camel Age (which as an
autocratic collective right of the society to choose must be respected),
which they view as infinitly superior to the drugged up sexualized
materialistic experience forced upon those unfortunate souls born into
families of the west, there is a noticeable difference between the Islamic
State as espoused by the Ahlul Sunnah Wal Juma'at (the Four Math-habs of
Haqq) and their Glorious Noble Undefeated Now-Globally-Feared Mujahideen
Vanguards of Jihaad (the Talibaan or students), and the Islamic State of
the deviant salafi-sect who have unhitched themselves from the protective
shield of Taqlid and claimed (falsely) to have re-opened the Gates of
Ijtihad. The latter (ISIS and the salafi cult), with no taqlid of any
Math-hab to check their human error, regularly commit horrible war-crimes
against innocent kuffaar and make Islaam look bad. Whereas the former (the
Talibaan) who make the strictest Taqlid of he Hanafi Math-hab, had, although
far from perfect and like any humans did make mistakes, also made many
progressive strides forward on how to make Islaam compatible with the
modern day, such as eradicate Opium production in their country, and of
course the slanders against the people of Haqq were launched from the
people of baatil (the western kuffaar who's number 1 problem with Islaam
is not terrorism but Emaan) and this is the Sunnah of the world - constant
battle between truth and falsehood.

The Khalifate will be restored when Hadhrat 'Isa alayhee salaam returns
and slays the false-messiah after leading Jihaad against the zionist state.
Any hope of a restoration before then is delusion (albeit Islamic Emirate
will no doubt be established alhamdulillah). But What these murderous
criminal CIA-manipulated salafis (who lack taqwa) are peddling can in no
way be called Jihaad - more like fassad and dhulm (anarchy, crime,
rebellion)! Jihaad is too Glorious of an Instituion of Islaam for these
nimwits to fathom. The zionist so-called masters of the universe have
really had their way with these poor misled 'Arabs. What is happening
today in Iraq, make no mistake, has it's designs - not in Nuristaan and
Khandahar (aka the Muslim Headquarters), but in Tel Aviv, Riyadh, and
Washington. But alas, the kuffaar failed to grasp the meaning of the
words of Allah Azza Wa Jal:

"They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah
refuses except to perfect His light, although the kuffaar dislike it"

May Allah crush these conspirators and establish Haqq. May Allah guide
to Haqq whosoever He Wills from amongst who reads this short communication.
Amen.

W passed the single piece of legislation since Medicare and Medicaid, advocated torture of prisoners and the assassination of American citizens if they were terrorists, passed massive tax cuts that were largely not coupled with spending cuts, set in place the programs and massive domestic surveillance system, and fought tax long and protracted wars which were largely paid through massive borrowing and will have huge long term costs.
That is just for starters.

Obama has been inept and continued if not added to some of W's programs but you would be hard pressed to find a more inept ruler/president who did more long term harm to his country than W did during 8 years.

If there is a hell, W will burn there and be tormented by the hundreds of thousands of people who needlessly direct in Iraq including the nearly 5k US service personnel who died for a pointless war.

Did Bush trade five senior terrorist criminals for one deserter at a time that our soldiers are still losing their lives to capture or kill more of the same?

Did Bush author and sign a healthcare bill that constitutes a takeover of 17% of our economy with no legitimate way for even the slightest chance of success?

Did Bush open the borders wide, openly defying immigration law resulting in our borders being flooded by refugee children?

Anything remotely tangible that he actually achieved in the goodwill to mankind stakes before his nomination that someone can clue me in on?

I agree with all except the notion of Obama being incompetent.  The MIC and banking industries are doing very well.  Oil is STILL flowing.  The "rough" patches that all others are experiencing have more to do with the physical realities of the world than of political decision-making; more and more people and less and less physical resources = smaller pie slices (can only be rectified by changing one or the other side of the equation).

9/11 was essentially the flashing warning signs of the US empire collapsing.  That it's still standing in 2014 is nothing short of a marvel: this is not to say that I credit Obama with this, I do not, but all TPTB have managed to do a pretty good job of keeping the music playing as the Titantic sinks.

If you think that Obama is bad then just wait until the next POTUS-sitter comes along.  And if there's another one after that then that one too will be even more "incompetent."  Just follow the progression from several administrations back and you'll see the clear trend...

Sorry, not buying it. You are drifting into bullshit moral relativism. There are good and bad people everywhere. Trying to equate Christians to Muslims isn't gonna fly because the facts simply don't support it. One is MUCH worse than the other. Start with the ideology: compare the New Testament with the Koran; there is no comparison.

You like speaking English instead of Arabic? Thank a Christian from the middle ages. Here is some useful information that can help you understand the history a little more clearly.

"One of the most enduring problems of history is the decline of Classical Civilization. How was it that the civilization of Greece and Rome, which had endured almost a thousand years, a civilization which prized learning, science and reason, gave way to the world of the Medieval; an age which saw, for a while, the almost complete disappearance of the rationalist spirit of Greece and Rome? The traditional view was that after their seizure of Italy in the fifth century, the Barbarian tribes of Germany and Scythia had reduced Europe to an economic and cultural wasteland, initiating a Dark Age, which was to last half a millennium. After the Reformation, another suspect was added to the list: Christianity, or, more accurately, Catholic Christianity. In this view Christianity was corrupted beyond recognition after the time of Constantine and from the fourth century onwards a power-hungry Church hierarchy, in cahoots with the Imperial authorities, kept the population of Europe in subservience and ignorance, effectively completing the destructive work of the Barbarians.

In this ground-breaking work, historian John J. O'Neill examines a great variety of evidence from many specialties and reaches an astonishing and novel conclusion: Classical Civilization was not destroyed by Barbarians or by Christians. It survived intact into the early seventh century. The Vandals and Goths who seized the Western Empire in the fifth century had become completely romanized by the start of the sixth century. Artistic and intellectual life flourished, as did the economy and the cities built earlier under the Empire. Yet sometime in the middle of the seventh century everything changed. Cities were abandoned, literacy plummeted, royal authority declined and local strongmen, or "barons", seized control of the provinces. The Middle Ages had begun.

Who or what had caused this? As O'Neill notes, by the 1920s Belgian historian Henri Pirenne had located the proverbial "smoking gun"; but it was not in the hands of the Barbarians or the Christians: it was held by those who, even then, it had become fashionable to credit with saving, rather than destroying, Classical Civilization: the Arabs. In a conclusion that will have resonance for the modern world, O'Neill argues convincingly that all we regard as "Medieval" had its origin in Islam, and that the Muslims terminated Classical Civilization in Europe just as surely as they did in the Middle East. O'Neill shows how the sudden relapse of Europe in the seventh century was due entirely to the economic blockade imposed by Islam's war against Christendom. The Mediterranean, which had previously been a cultural highway, now became a frontier, and a very dangerous frontier at it. Prompted by Islam's doctrine of perpetual war against nonbelievers, Muslim pirates scoured the Mediterranean, effectively ending all trade between Europe and the great centers of civilization in the Near East. The flow of gold ended, as did the supply of all luxury items. And so too did the supply of papyrus from Egypt, without which Europeans were forced to rely on expensive parchment. Not surprisingly, literacy plummeted. Worst of all, the great cities of the West, which depended upon the trade in luxury items from the East, began to decline.

As the dominant power of the time, ideas originating in the Islamic world now began to penetrate Europe. From their Muslim foes Christian Europeans began to think in terms that would have been unimaginable a century earlier. The idea of "Holy War" entered the mindset of Christians, and, under the influence of Islam, the rationalism of Greece and Rome began to be replaced by a literal and intolerant interpretation of "The Book." Classical civilization was dead"

Yeah, "the west" planted the Koran, the hadiths, sharia, the whole foundation of Islam deep in the Saudi Arabian desert of the 7th century, for oil, or a pipeline, or something.  And Mohammed was clearly Mossad.

No shit.

I get so tired of saying it but one last time: These people DO NOT think like the majority of us. They want a world wide Caliphate and they don't give a shit about how many Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Christians, agnostics, atheists, wiccans, dogs, cats, fish, communists, capitalists or vegans they slaughter to get make it happen.

Period.

It's not that hard to understand unless one is willfully blind -and many are. Peace to mohammedans is dar el salaam, roughly translated as the world of islam, i.e., when all are under islam (dar el salaam), then you have peace...that's their definition, not mine.

 

When people talk about radical islam as being started/organized by the israelis or the CIA, they are showing their ignorance of history.  Look up ibn abdul wahab...he got going in the 1700s...not a Mossad agent in sight.

 

When it comes to islam, you have limited choices:

1. Fight them, and prevail or die

2. Submit

3. Live as a non-muslim and pay the jizya (tax for non mohammedans -this is what they would prefer as it brings in money)

I'm guessing the indigenous peoples in the Americas felt similarly about the Europeans and God's (Jesus) Kingdom on Earth.

Sometimes I think we are incrementally becoming like Zoroastrians in Persia during the 7th century after being overthrown. They were given dhimmi status and subjected to persecutions; discrimination and harassment by the Islamists. Zoroastrians were made to pay an extra tax called Jizya, failing which they were either killed, enslaved or imprisoned.

Some religion of Peace. I can't wait to hear the spin how this is whitey fault because we are to blame without a doubt. ;-)

Religious beliefs are manipulated in an ingroup-outgroup manner like political beliefs.

You would think that those who understand the political manipulation would see the religious manipulation.
