In New Audio Clip, ISIS Leader Baghdadi Threatens Israel, Says Group Not Phased By Russian Airstrikes

Tyler Durden's picture

Although ISIS releases nearly 40 pieces of propaganda each and every day via the group’s sprawling network of production units located in at least a dozen countries, one person you don’t hear from very often is TIME magazine’s runner-up for “person of the year”, Bakr al-Baghdadi. 

The ISIS chief - who was once held in a US jail in Iraq - is notoriously reclusive and hasn’t been seen in public since last year’s speech in Mosul in which he declared himself caliph. On Saturday, Baghdadi has released a new audio clip in which he assures the world that neither the US nor Russia has weakened the group. He also threatens attacks on Israel.

From Haaretz:

ISIS commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi published a voice recording Saturday in which he threatened that Islamic State militants would attack Israel.


"With the help of Allah, We are getting closer to you every day," al-Baghdadi told his Israeli listeners. "The Israelis will soon see us in Palestine. This is no longer a war of the crusaders against us. The entire world is fighting us right now." 


The ISIS leader continued, "The Israelis thought that we forgot Palestine and that they had distracted us from it. That is not the case. We have not forgotten Palestine for one moment."

And from The Jerusalem Post

The audio message said air strikes by Russia and by a US-led coalition had failed to weaken the group.


"Be confident that God will grant victory to those who worship him, and hear the good news that our state is doing well. The more intense the war against it, the purer it becomes and the tougher it gets," Baghdadi added.  


The tape was posted on Saturday on Twitter accounts that usually publish Islamic State statements.


In May, ISIS issued an audio recording that it said was by Baghdadi, calling on supporters around the world to join the fight in Syria and Iraq or to take up arms wherever they live.


In the May recording, issued by the group's al-Furqan media outlet and posted on several websites, a voice sounding like Baghdadi's says: "There is no excuse for any Muslim not to migrate to the Islamic State ..."


Joining (its fight) is a duty on every Muslim. We are calling on you either join or carry weapons (to fight) wherever you are."


Reuters and The Jerusalem Post could not independently verify the authenticity of the audio of the May or the Saturday recordings.


In the May message, Baghdadi tells the rulers of Saudi Arabia that "their end is near", adding that Gulf rulers felt threatened by the growing popularity of his group among Sunni Muslims.

A bit of humor:

And so, as Baghdadi's soldiers are set to lose control of Ramadi, a key city in Iraq, the ISIS leader appears keen on reassuring the caliphate that all is indeed well. As The Telegraph notes, "he also called on Saudi citizens - the biggest contributor to Isil ranks - to "rise up" against their government as he dimissed the kingdom's newly formed Muslim coalition against the caliphate." He needn't worry, Riyadh's "coalition" is farcical given the kingdom's penchant for promoting the exact same ideology as that espoused by Baghdadi. 

But with Russia systematically dismantling the group's oil trafficking network, and with the Iraqis on the move first in Ramadi, and perhaps soon in Mosul, Baghdadi's declarations may well be a sign that the end draws nigh for a pet project that, until recently, was nutured by the US and its regional allies in Riyadh, Ankara, and Doha.

Mossad is getting funny, now they are threatening Israel.

Baghdadi hasnt forgotten Israel, he threatens to give them more territory!!!  By the way Baghdadi looks just like Adam Leibowitz, guy I went to high school with and who moved to Israel.

WHO released Al Baghdadi from Camp Bucca prison in 2009 in one of their first acts in power???

Jews write the same script every time.

They're just trying to keep people from wondering, 'How come those sand monkeys never ever attack Israel?'

No, they don't want people to start wondering about that.

Cue Isreali attacks on Damascus.

Since he specifically said they are not phased by Russian airstrikes it means, they are getting their asses kicked by Russian airstrikes.

Of course other Syrian rebel leaders can not comment because they are  now vaporized dust as of yesterday.

Yea, fuckin 3 years later, still waiting for Islamic State to attack Israel. This is a clear sign the propaganda war has changed, hold on to your hats.

beemasters's picture

When they own advanced technologies like the Iron Dome, they have been able to vaporize any ISIS member within mere five seconds of seriously thinking to attack Israel. This audio clip was vetted and pre-approved by Mossad.

To be fair, Al Badaddy would have made his vague, non-binding "threats" to Izzy sooner, but Bibi's e-mails had been going to his spam filter.

ISIS is fighting against Hezbollah.   Who kicked Isri-hell out of Lebanon in 2000 and 2006?

Exacta-fucking-mundo Freddie! How quickly we forget!

Hezb'Allah alone, without any kind of external support, kicked the ever-loving kosher-shit out of Israel's vaunted Army. For those with selective or short memory, or those suffering from exposure to "MSM Zionitis" I recommend a truth treatment in three parts.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Get well soon...

Surely the truth is out, now, that ISIS is a Mossad/CIA front that in no way threatend Israel. America's reputation just gets worse and worse, sliding downward with every week that passes.

Even sadder, in a way, is that Amnesty International has come into the open as a CIA stooge. Sigh. Who will be outed next?

This is just the start of the setup to allow Israel to 'justify' further invasion of Syria and more landgrabs.

Currently there is a buffer zone in the Golan claimed by Israel, but legally part of Syria. This has oil/gas resources, fertile land, so Israel wants this for its own. The claims by ISIS will increase, Israel will then (ahem) ask its ISIS boyz adjacent to the current buffer zone to move out, allowing Israel to claim this land as an essential buffer zone. The currently disputed land in the Golan will become de facto part of Israel. It is unclear whether Russia has agreed to this. It certainly hasn't disputed Israel's claims to control the airspace in this area.

1/ A few Israeli soldiers get killed in an ambush in the West Bank. The finger is pointed at ‘IS.IL’.

2/ Israel responds by killing hundreds of Arab civilians “among whom the terrorists were hiding”.

" by killing hundreds of Arab civilians “among whom the terrorists were hiding”."

A bit of a contrast to Obama- "we didn't shoot for fear of increasing the CO2 in the atmostphere"

To give them some modicum of credibility at least they could pretend to attack Israel. Thus far, they haven't attacked Israel yet have had plenty of time to attack and occupy large swathes of Syria and Iraq, in addition to having time to help out in Paris, San Bernadino, etc., yet still no attack on Israel. The cynic in me would think this is simply bad disinformation aimed at weak kneed recruits having second thoughts about joining the idiot cannon fodder ranks of the political cult called Islam.

HowdyDoody's picture

The Mossad handlers on the ground need only fire a few mortar shells over the UN demarcation line towards Israel. The western MSM will do the rest.

Hasbara on parade.  Odd that not one of the "terrorist" groups ( ISIS, ISIL, IS you pick one) has ever attacked israel.  There is however, plenty of footage of Israeli military treating terrorist wounded.

If Baghdadi is on CIA payroll like the other ISIS psychos, why is he so worried? They'll retire him on a nice quiet oasis until he's contracted out for more chaos. After all that training and money there's no reason DC can't retrain him for something else, maybe a cushy teaching job at Langley.

It does seem strange that ISIS mentions Israel now that 1% of the American population is starting to notice the crickets.


Once Americans realize that Israel is not a democracy,  they'll understand why our foreign policy is all about making sure that Israels neighbors remain theocracies Israel.

Oh Yes, I am so convinced that ISIS hates Israel.

Was it because Israel isn't doing enough for wounded ISIS fighters?  Or Israel's military leadership in taking Mosul and other places has been inadequate? (Google for the story on the Israeli Colonel captured with ISIS forces from  few months ago.)

The major thing to learn from this is the depth of management of the world's news.  This is part of nailing the frame back around the "ISIS are the badass terrorists of the world" story.

And, of course, erasing the understanding that ISIS is just another tool of the Israeli-Neocons in gaining world domination using the US's military to do so.

Israeli-Neocons are the existential threat to the world.

Yup.  I'll believe it when I see them dig up the "hollowed ground", burn it all, then salt the entire area and cover the area in pigs blood.  Or a hog farm/processing plant right on the site.  A gesture of good faith by any other name.

People need to start disassociating the term America/American, from the US Gov, they are totally at odds. US Gov is a tool of the zionists. Just look at where all the money comes from, 46% of money going to Dems, that we know of comes from wealthy Jewish donors (and they are not giving that money out of their "altruism", they are buying the government) (and be rest assured, if any politician questioned this, the zionist media would destroy him with lies and false associations: like they did to Ron Paul). I am sure it is about the same for Republicans. I mean watching a republican debate, you would think they were running for Israel's PM. Washington does nothing for the people, all for the Jewish Oligarchs. 

Putin started locking the Jewish Oligarchs up (you know the ones that swooped in after Russia fell apart and bought up all the natural resources, as they always do everywhere), thus the Jews hate Putin, they see him as a threat...


Sad that the Zionist's best friend in America are the Evangelicals. Evangelicals have to be the most misguided people on the face of the earth, and certainly not because of their faith in Christ...I don't need to write the rest, we all know the price of their ignorance. Ironically Russia, an Orthodox Christian nation is having to go it alone against Satan's flock. No wonder more and more people see Putin as the hero and Obama the coward/traitor.

That is because evengelicals are the complete morons amongs christians and the US is full of them,.

Evangelists have been hijacked by the Jesus hating Jews.
They are in fact following the anti Christian message in the Talmud. To claim that support for a people who openly preach hatred towards Jesus is christan, is a perversion of christianity

Meanwhile:  Christmas in Damascus, Syria.   Here are some of the Christians The Pentagram and Deep State/ZATO are murdering.

Syria is arguably the birthplace of Christianity. Probably around 50 AD.

This is just more disinformation/propaganda. Nothing to see here. But if you see one of their twitter or other social media posts in the wild, please report them. Government is clearly ineffective in stopping the spread of this plague that helps recruit and radicalise Muslims. We must take our own actions against ISIS. Putting this solely in the hands of government will likely result in further restrictions on free speech on the Internet.
