Am I correct in reading that per million population means that america supposedly has around 22,000 people in ISIS?  Or have my reading comprehension levels dropped being away from native speakers?

No that's 70 total in 300 million or about 2/10ths of a person per million. That's why it doesn't show up in the graph.

Considering there are 5-7 million muslims living in the US the interest in pursuing a career in jihadism seems to be much lower than the CIA and NSA would like it to be. Perhaps a well-produced Hollywood recruitment video with 72 hot dancing Virgins might help? That or free Belgian chocolates or whatever they put into the water...

You are correct.   On the other hand, this is a statistical analysis done by a J-school major,  And is  therefore on a par with your average 4 yr old arguing that 120% of Americans  support ISIS.

Meanwhile....we have the technology....

Pepe Escobar, in a recent artiles at ATimes has the following figure, his source is not noted. (my bold emphasis) A good article, worth to read the whole..

The killer spoke with a British accent. Yet he may not be just a well-paid mercenary (500 from Britain, 700 from France, 500 from Belgium… ). He's most certainly a true believer in the wider IS medievalist ideology as well as its no-holds-barred sectarian methods.

How convenient that IS strategy is totally divide and rule. Totally balkanization of Iraq. Totally mum on Israel's slow-motion ethnic cleansing of Gaza. Totally useful in wagging the (beheading) dog to make the world forget about Gaza.

Moroever, IS/ISIS strategy, stripped to the bone, is Pentagon manual; clear, hold and build - then expand (to an area larger than Great Britain). It's even Pentagon manual redux - as in building "coalitions of the willing" (see the alliance with "remnants" - Rummy talk - of the Saddam regime propelling their northern Iraq summer offensive.)

There's a reason many AshkeNazi Jooze like diamonds so much.

Antwerp, Belgium -- world capital diamonds

"Judaism and the Jewish Quarter

Many diamond dealers and traders belong to the Antwerp's Orthodox Jewish community, which has a long tradition of handling diamonds. More than 80% of the city's Jews are involved in the diamond trade and Yiddish is the main language of the diamond exchange.

Antwerp is home to about 15,000 Jews and one of the largest ultra-Orthodox communities in the Diaspora. The city's 30 synagogues are all Orthodox. Around 95% of Jewish children in Antwerp attend Jewish religious schools and there are many kosher delis, restaurants and grocery stores."

"Coincidentally", Brussels is EU headquarters.

Remember the Belgian Congo and King Leopold's Holocaust?

And then there's the Cecil Rhodes and the British Royal family connection:

"The Jews’ blood and conflict diamond trade in Africa has been particularly lucrative in Central Congo, where one-third of the world’s known diamonds have been found. Israeli diamond traders control more than 50 percent of the Congo’s diamond exports; and they’ve brokered deals with Congolese leaders of the ilk of Laurent Kabila, that have included diamonds for Israel in return for arming and training the country’s troops to commit all sorts of atrocities against their fellow Gentiles (especially Christians) on a routine basis.

British ‘neocon’ Cecil Rhodes created the diamond cartel De Beers Consolidated Mines in 1888, after buying out the diamond interests of the Jew Barney Barnato. Rhodes then used the cartel to control the world’s diamond markets, and create the myth of diamond scarcity, which sets the gemstone’s highly artificial price. The Jewish Oppenheimer family has owned the De Beers diamond cartel since Rhodes’ death; and the Oppenheimers are relatives of Mayer Rothschild who served a three-year apprenticeship in Hanover at the Bank of Oppenheimer.

Stone cutting, stone polishing, and retail fronts for De Beers are mostly Jew run subsidiaries; and in Europe almost all gemstones marketing has been either corrupted or controlled by Jews since the Middle Ages. Rough diamonds are shipped from the mines to the Jewish districts of Antwerp and to Israel, to be cut and polished; and New York’s billion dollar diamond trade is centred on 47th Street, where 25,000 (mainly Haredi) Jews are cutting, polishing, and marketing the stones.

The Jew Lev Leviev has made an immense fortune from trade in blood and conflict diamonds; and the EU has warned him that if he continues to trade in “blood rubies” with Myanmar’s dictatorial military junta he will face sanctions. Leviev’s blood diamond trade in Angola has been supported by the notorious pro-communist, Jew sponsored Dos Santos regime; and it has been backed by an equally wicked private security firm, K & P Mineira, which has been accused of torturing, sexually abusing, and mass murdering indigenous people.

New Yorkers recently picketed the LEVIEV jewellery store on Madison Avenue, charging the Jewish billionaire with fraudulent acquisition and development of land in Israel and the West Bank, via his firm Africa Israel Investments, which was set up by Jews from South Africa to acquire and develop real estate for apartheid Jewish occupation in Palestine."

5k+ western educated fighters is insane and does represents a very dangerous new dynamic in the ME, which until now has been able to be dominated thru petty tribal politics and massive poverty!!

These guys are barbaric, genocidal maniacs, but they are breaking down borders, ideologys, and cultural divisions in a very real way!! I don't see how old borders will apply after this and that's why these guys are getting flooded with new recruits daily, that and they can pay lots and offer lots of incentives, when your conquering entire regions and towns and looting every ounce of wealth in it, as you go!!

A couple of points...


1) The 5K Western educated fighters will prove largely useless in the ME but will prove very useful for TPTB if they return home which I hope all precautions are taken so they don't.

2)  The barbaric genocidal system was taught by the CIA in Jordan. (Called the Ghengis Khan strategy)

3) "I don't see how old borders will apply after this..." That was always the NeoCon plan. I also see some Al Nusra types are already staging attacks in the Golan. Soon enough it will be ISIS in Jordan. What is Israel to do other than seize more territory to ensure it's survival? How handy for them that the borders are now gone...

Since Israel seems to be backing ISIS, perhaps she will know how ISIS will meet its doom when it is no longer necessary for her Zionist Nile to the Euphrates Crusade.

It doesn't require a triple digit IQ to see that most, if not all, of the terror culprits in the Middle East are in bed together.

Unless you consider method acting, poor adobe after effects skills and crowd sourcing cheap theatre a threat, the story as it stands is full of holes.  At this point Israel is trying WAY too hard to get attention for something that it missed the opportunity on years ago regardless of the smoke being blown up people's asses.

The clock on an opportuntiy is never rolled back and they missed the gap.  They can get to the back of the line since they screwed around, someone else get's 'the wedding'.

True. But 300 is the true non-published number in reality plus the 2 killed recently.

The UK wants to keep their potential ISIS fighters--talk about full retard. Let them go, just don't let them come back.

"British Prime Minister David Cameron called Monday for a new law to give police the temporary power to seize a passport in case a British citizen is suspected of trying to travel to support ISIS"

and here I thought they were warning those jhadists leaving UK to be sure

to return within 6 months or their welfare cheques may stop and medical

coverage will no longer cover gun-shot or stab wounds.


Again, being as Cameron has a hand in it - there probably something more sinister afoot.

like having those poor jahadists sign-off on their state paid housing since there's due a

flood of Romanians needing free housing in the new year...

Oh man.  All of the best Bond women villans were often Italians.

Luciana Paluzzi, Daniela Bianchi, Catherina Murino (Casino Royale new one),

Luciana was the red head villan in Thunderball.   Mama Mia!  I would join SPECTRE, ISIS, the KGB if I could "work" with her.  She also rode the BSA assasin motorbike in blakc riding leathers.

Comedian Dennis Miller said if you were a 13 year old boy and watched Boy Riding A Dolphin when Sophia Loren comes up wet on the boat.  If you do not go crazy for her then you are gay.

No one from Poland either (or Ukraine or Belarus) and that's because Poles don't allow Muslims and/or Africans in to run roughshod over their country.

They may be geopolitically fucked as well as Russia's bitch occasionally, but at least they aren't being flooded with 3rd-world maniacs and retards.

Proper phrasing:  To where will the ISIS fighters return?


Ending sentences with prepositions merely hastens the Muslim Apocalypse.

IOW, you sucked up the Latinate rules for English like a good sheeple. In Latin there are no prepositions as separate words, thus it is impossible to end a sentence with a preposition.

The 'genius' who insisted English follow Latin did so because he believed Latin was the perfect language.

But English isn't Latin. English is a word order language whereas Latin is a declension language. Therefore Latin rules don't apply.

A dysfunctional family life where a father abused them physically, mentally and emotionally. No formal education other than the influence of Religious Indoctrination Centers and profound poverty.
