ISIS Is Hiring Judges, Doctors And Engineers As Al-Qaeda Prepares For War Against Caliphate

Tyler Durden's picture

As we reported earlier, in what was perhaps the first official action by the jihadists with the glossy year end brochures, the newly crated ISIS Caliphate which stretches from Syria to Iraq (and which is not longer ISIS, just IS, or Islamic State) made a global call urging the Muslim proletariat to immigrate to the newly created territory in a clear example of what in the US would be called "porous" immigration policy. Judging the by the expansive proposed borders, the terrorist organization, which in the past has received occasional training and support by the US and with a penchant for cannibalism will have a while to wait before its removes all the slack from its incipient economy, more or less like the Fed.

But perhaps more curious is that the leader of the self-proclaimed al-Qaeda spin off nation, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in addition to a broad religious call to arms, so to speak, also beckoned workers with a specific skillset to present themselves for duty: namely those with military, medical and managerial skills were urged to flock to the newly-declared state in an audio recording released Tuesday.

As Al Arabiya reports, the newly named “caliph” said the appeal especially applied to “judges and those who have military and managerial and service skills, and doctors and engineers in all fields.”

It goes without saying that IS is also in need to fighters (not to mention suicide bombers, although compensation arrangements there could be problematic): Baghdadi also addressed the group’s fighters, saying that “your brothers in all the world are waiting” to be rescued by them.

“Terrify the enemies of Allah and seek death in the places where you expect to find it,” he said. “Your brothers, on every piece of this earth, are waiting for you to rescue them.”

“By Allah, we will take revenge, by Allah we will take revenge, even if after a while,” Baghdadi said. “Fighters should “embrace the chance and champion Allah’s religion through jihad,” he added.

Furthermore, since the caliphate is now wealthier than its ideological competitor Al Qaeda ever was, it just may be the case that Europe (and/or the US) may suddenly experience a major skilled worker brain drain as the best doctors, managers and engineers rush to get paid by terrorists, with the occasional virgin thrown in as a Christmas bonus.

Perhaps ironically, the biggest question now is not whether or not IS(IS) will continue its jihad against Baghdad and seek to branch out by, say, crossing the Atlantic - that much is guaranteed - but what happens with the abovementioned Al Qaeda itself, which will hardly stand idly by and watch as it is upstaged by its formerly smaller, and (formerly) far more irrelevant spin off.

According to AFP, the declaration of an Islamic caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria is a direct challenge to Al-Qaeda and could set off a dangerous contest for the leadership of the global jihadist movement, experts say.

Paradoxically, it would be the west that suffers the most:

Desperate to retain its preeminent role, the movement behind September 11 may be driven to carry out fresh attacks on Western targets to prove it remains relevant.


"This competition between jihadists could be very dangerous," said Shashank Joshi of the London-based Royal United Services Institute, warning that Al-Qaeda may look to make a "spectacular" show of force.


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) announced on Sunday it was establishing a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria where it has seized control. A form of government last seen under the Ottoman Empire, a caliphate has been a long-held dream of radical jihadists who want to impose their version of Islamic sharia law.


Renaming itself simply the Islamic State (IS), the group also daringly declared its chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as caliph and "leader for Muslims everywhere".

Here is where it gets interesting: Al-Qaeda can hardly ignore what is essentially a declaration of war from an upstart that has scored a string of successes, said Magnus Ranstorp, an expert on radical Islamic movements at the Swedish National Defence College.

"The competition has already started," he said. "Al-Baghdadi already refused to pledge allegiance to (Al-Qaeda leader Ayman) al-Zawahiri and now he can say: 'Look what we have accomplished... You are just somewhere, we don't know where, talking on the Internet.'"


For a new, younger generation of radical Islamic militants, Al-Qaeda with its grey-bearded 63-year-old leader is no longer the draw it was under Osama bin Laden.


Believed to be holed up in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region, Zawahiri in their eyes seems to have done little in recent years beyond issuing statements and videos.

Finally, in what could be the coup de grace in its recruitment efforts, the Islamic State is allowing its cannibal terrorists to use FaceBook and Twitter. In other words, the original Al Qaeda will have to blow up some really big and really symbolic buildings to regain its coolness factor from its much younger and much hipper Islamic State terrorist competition.

White collars are the most reliable people on the planet. That Mel Gibson show named Braveheart showed them running away from a decisive battle at a point when their participation would have turned the tide. I'm sure that was an anomaly and not in the least indicative to our times.

Because they are smart.

"...Arabesque Americaine leaves absolutely no doubt that the "Arab Spring" -- like the earlier "color revolutions" in eastern Europe -- were almost certainly destabilization/regime change operations, funded and orchestrated by the CIA, State Department, historic CIA-funded foundations --   and last, but not least, Google.

Bensaada's 120-page book provides a carefully researched and referenced account of each of the foundations that are "exporting democracy" to MENA (the Middle East and North Africa ), along with an exact accounting of the millions of dollars given to each country in 2009 and the specific groups the funds went to.

My favorite chapter was the one describing the role these foundations, the State Department, and Google have played in training young MENA activists in the use of social media (e.g. Facebook and Twitter). I was particularly interested in the free access and training they provide international youth activists on TOR, a special software designed to evade government surveillance (which, under the Patriot Act, is illegal in the US ). ..."

Since when does "Al Qaeda" actually exist?

Re: "the caliphate is now wealthier than its ideological competitor Al Qaeda ever was..."

That's a bold statement in three ways:  1)  Can somebody provide a comprehensive spreadsheet of vendors, contracts and invoices going back 20 years?  That would include all dancing photographers, caterers, munitions experts, security firms, insurers, arms dealers, and narcotics refiners, including firms registered in the Caribbean, and paying special attention to monies paid by western governments.  2)  Can somebody provide specific qualitative and historically verifiable details, free of superficial distinctions like change of name or color of turban, that would distinguish the new bunch from the old (e.g., Vegan, taste in music)?  3)  Who holds the bulk of the treasure liberated from various governments in recent years?  

Furthermore, who argued that organized crime of sufficient scale becomes indistinguishable from government?  The recruitment drive referenced above would support that thesis.  Taking it a step further, what other governments can be said to have their own terror apparatus?  Is there such a thing as "State Sponsored Terrorism?"

looks like they have taken france and england already.

"Looks like they came from France and Britain" actually. "This is our happy face now" time? "We gave the order for Jihad but things got out of hand"?

Al Qaeda? The Shiites wiped out an entire 100,000 man British Expeditionary force back in the twenties. I'm not sure the My is gonna take this lying down.

This Big Baghdaddi guy clearly didn't finish the requisite training requirement.

They have repelled "the invaders" from Tikrit however. Land mines? That sounds surprisingly organized and well provisioned.

Let them come from all over and flock to that shithole desert.   They will be starving in no time.   Of course then they will have to lash out.  This is where they either expand or get slaughtered.

I've been to that desert...and it is truly a shit hole.

Plus nobody really likes these people. Turkomens, Kurds, Al Assad, the House of Saud. Looks like there Capital is Tikrit though. For now at least.

Interestingly, Al Jazeera kept on showing an attractive (well, eyes only) Uzbek young lady from Kyrgyzstan, keen to support the boyz with her medical experience and ready to travel to the IS.  She didn't want to go fighting, but was ready for a "support role" with a little Arabic. She could teach religion too.

If that wasn't propaganda telling the young males what "support" they could expect to find when they volunteer , I don't know what is.


auntiesocial's picture

So if ISIS attacks Israel, is America obligated to fight (full force) at that point? This is going to be a huge cluster no matter how this pans out.

Good question. Perhaps a better one is "does the President need permission?" He might just declare it a "terrorist State" and "go in."

teslaberry's picture

this whole thing is essentially a giant psyop. 


you cannot have a substantial military without  a source of fuel and weapons and food. but you can always steal and kill for food, not so much weapons at all, and fuel to some extent, but not really. you need a logistial guaranteed supply of fuel for transport otherwise you don't have a military. you have a band of wandering thugs. 

you can have a low level kalashnikov army, but it's still an army with fuel and weapons. 


this is NOT an independent army. it is a mere psyop creationo of those nations FUNNELLING WEAPONS AND FUEL TO IT. 


hard to believe they can refine much crude using holes in the ground----but who knows?



even though i"m jewish, i would say, don't insult hitler by comparing these incompetents to him. 


hitler was an impressive figure no matter how much you dislike him . he organized an entire set of people, many of who didn't even suppport him but were more then content to roll with the nazi agenda in fear. many of the so called 'liberal' new german youth have been brainwashed to be afraid of their shadows because of the crimes of hitler, but what they have never been educated about is the general difficult and irrationality of war. 

ok yea sure hitler was an evil fucker, but germany's presence in world war  was not a untilateral fantasy. 


what with the u.s. now extending their german/polish and general presence in eastern europe along with their nato 'allies' ---into ukraine to threaten moscow.----there is a brewing battle for the hearts and minds of europeans, and germans in particular. 


it's time to start false flagging the shit out of germans and french. if it's war we want, it's going to take some seriously excellent psyops to do this. without a cohesive european union effort , with a german and french banked european police army bakcing up domestic cohesiveness with their nato armies actions in the east----it is hard to image a substantial effort going unopposed by our allies. 


if all of europe is at each other , or worse, together united against u.s. led campaigns in ukraine----then there is a serious problem for the u.s. policy. 


i guess we can just lay waste with nukes, but there's always the risk of MAD. don't wanna be in new york if the Topol mobile launchers are in motion. more likely they target european cities first, or perhaps even u.s. west coast cities. but new york is such a juicy target. if our generals nuke moscow, i feel like retaliation is probably against ny, london, singapore, hong kong, the chinese might do taiwan for good measure---


 i mean i don't think it will be pretty. somehow i imagine berlin getting off easy this time around. the french? well they just sold a massive fucking amphibious frog assault ship to the russians. fucking frogs , am i right? 

maybe this whole campaign is one giant compartmentalized psyop to fuck over china and putin is secretly in on it by pretneding to fight with nato. i mean really---WHO FUCKING KNOWS?!

Interesting thoughts. You sound like one of the psychopaths:

"it's time to start false flagging the shit out of germans and french. if it's war WE want, it's going to take some seriously excellent psyops to do this. without a cohesive european union effort , with a german and french banked european police army bakcing up domestic cohesiveness with their nato armies actions in the east----it is hard to image a substantial effort going unopposed by our allies...i guess we can just lay waste with nukes..."

Bottom line: this is all choreographed by INTERNATIONAL BANKERS PITTING OTHER GROUPS AGAINST EACH OTHER AND MAKING MONEY OFF ALL SIDES.  You cannot fight proxy wars on the present scale without something going haywire and causing the situation to escalate beyond the control of rational men and women of conscience who at this point in time are still in positions to make a difference.  First priority should be to identify the psychopathic banking powers and isolate them: economic warfare.  I believe this is already in progress, manifesting in the pursuit of "de-dollarization" and alternative to the SWIFT system, among many other things.  The reserve status of the debt based U.S. Dollar is a disease.  Its traffickers are the pathogen. ALL WARS ARE BANKER WARS.  You want to stop the current destructive path, STOP THE BANKERS.

"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks." - Lord Acton

Anecdotally, you suggest that there is no refining capacity in Northern Iraq?  I run a quick search for "refinery" and "northern Iraq," and find a place called "Irbil," and guess who visited there last week?  None other than John Kerry.  (I understand that the vast majority of refining activity is in the south.) 

Kerry visits Irbil as Kurdish president describes 'new reality' (24-Jun)

teslaberry's picture

well i was trying to explain the mindset, not personally endorse it. 


but really, while it's true that the bankers are behind all wars everywhere, so are the militarists, the industrialists, the ideologues, etc etc...

the mind fuck is that if you are succesful in stopping bankers in your own country, the bankers of some other country will fuck you over even worse using the political ratchet of their own international govenrment . 


exampel: soviet union fell apart and then american bankers and money men buy up soviet assets on the cheap. 


while it is nice to bleieve you can control you own bankers in a civlized orderly manner, most of the time, any succeful attempt at harnessing them results in them scattering like cockaroaches leaving a totally scorched earth political vaccum behind them. then they start funding the enemies of your political system; read --the american revolution and the subsequent 70 years of british activity in the u.s. 


british bankers backed the south in the civil war because they WANTED A WAR. to weaken the northern protectionists. you might claim the north were a bunch of evil war mongering fuckers who should have let the south cecede peacfully, but that's not the reality of how war goes down when you have foriegn bankers finacing the chaotic dissolution of your nation state.

Re: "...not personally endorse it, etc." 

Yah.  My comment wasn't intended to criticise; I was appreciating your attempt to think like a megalomaniac.

The parasites may keep bouncing back, but that doesn't mean their victims shouldn't keep searching for ways to get free of them. I think modern banksters have been caught off guard by the quality of the moves against them recently. Their enemies are doing what you just did - getting inside their heads, finding and exploiting vulnerabilities - on a level that they haven't anticipated. They fancy themselves "technocrats" and "elites" and aren't used to being on the other side of the microscope.  Look at their writings and the massive capital expenditure and capital destruction that they enabled. They didn't do all that just to see their Great Work go up in smoke. Better people than them are pulling the rug out.  We'll see a NWO, but it won't be theirs.

Anecdotally, I spent some time this week reading about new oil and gas deals between the Kurds and Iranians. When Kerry went over last week, he was probably just looking for table scraps for western oil companies that fear being left out in the cold. There is a LOT of oil and gas in the area. Just in case you're interested:
