May 2, 2018 New York HISTORY follows a group of veteran and civilian volunteers who travel to Syria and Iraq to fight against ISIS alongside local militias in the original documentary series, Hunting ISIS. The 6-episode series premieres on Tuesday, May 29 at 10pm ET/PT. Following its broadcast on HISTORY, the series will air on VICELAND on Sunday, June 3 at 10pm ET/PT. Hunting ISIS, a co-production of HISTORY and VICELAND, is produced by Delirio Films and directed by Sebastiano Tomada. John Battsek (Restrepo, Searching for Sugarman) serves as Executive Producer alongside Delirios Rafael Marmor and Christopher Leggett.

The terrorist organization known as ISIS emerged as a menace in the Middle East years before most in the West took notice of their attacks abroad. More brutal than Al Qaeda before them, ISIS took advantage of chaos caused by Syrias still-raging Civil War and the United States withdrawal from Iraq to recruit heavily in the region. In 2014, the world watched as they swept across Iraq and Syria, capturing wide territories and ruthlessly killing or enslaving anyone who showed signs of resistance as they declared themselves the Islamic State. Local forces backed by a U.S.-led coalition of western military powers began fighting back, but progress has taken years.

Not content to sit back and watch ISIS devastate the Middle East from afar, scores of western volunteers have since traveled to region to join the fight against the terrorist group. Through the eyes of American fighters embedded with the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria, and medics supporting a coalition of local forces in Iraq, Hunting ISIS follows these men as they begin the difficult push to retake ISIS capital cities.

Completely unpaid and unsupported by their governments, western volunteers have many reasons for joining the fight. Some are military veterans craving the familiar adrenaline rush and brotherhood of combat, who shoulder a sense of unfinished business in the Middle East. Some are civilians eager to test their mettle while searching for a greater purpose. All are united in their determination to defend the innocent and end the atrocities being committed by ISIS. With unprecedented access, this documentary series witnesses their unique role in one of the defining conflicts of our time, exploring whats driving these men to war.

Filmmaker and award-winning photographer Sebastiano Tomada built his career documenting conflict in some of the worlds most volatile warzones. Hunting ISIS is the culmination of over two years embedded in the trenches in Iraq and Syria, granting visceral, intimate access to the front lines of the war against ISIS and those individuals who give up everything to fight it.

Hunting ISIS is produced by Delirio Films for HISTORY. Rafael Marmor and Christopher Leggett are Executive Producers for Delirio. Melinda Toporoff is Executive Producer for HISTORY. Gena Konstantinakos and Patrick Moses are Executive Producers for VICELAND.

A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for the series.

ISIS IS True Islam | Walid Shoebat

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive) Reading the papersis reading authors of confusion. They say Saudi top cleric blasts al-Qaida and ISIS as enemy No. 1 of Islam in a statement issued in Riyadh.

The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy number one of Islam, the kingdoms top cleric said.

He cited jihadists from the Islamic State, which has declared a caliphate straddling parts of Iraq and Syria, and the global al-Qaida terror network. Really? ISIS and al-Qaida do not represent Islam? ISIS IS ISlam and ISlam is ISIS.

Muslims frequently say that we, the critics of Islam know nothing about Islam. They relentlessly exhaust us with this statement that ISIS terrorists do not understand true Islam.

I finally capitulate.

They are correct. The truth is that no one truly understands true Islam, neither Muslim scholars nor Muslims in general. Even the best of its secular critics dont understand it.The only way to fully understand Islam is to be the devil himself.

Not even Caliph Al-Baghdadi, the head of the ISIS understands true Islam for he is unaware that he worships the devil in disguise as God. We sit around calling ourselves experts and we argue over Jihad and its many meanings. Than we talk about stealth Jihad and creeping Sharia. Than we talk about how to reform Islam, so we elevate well-dressed groomed Muslims to promote this new form of reformed Islam.

The Muslim world looks at us and laughs saying that we still do not understand true Islam regardless that if we point the finger at the extremists or the moderates. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most prominent Sunni Muslim scholar (for sure he should understand true Islam) looks at us mockingly saying:

They speak not of the one Islam as revealed by Allah but of manufactured Islams, plural, several different Islams, which they desire to create. Sometimes they even divide Islam by regions. There is the Asian variety of Islam; then we have the African Islam. Sometimes, according to the ages, there is the Prophets era of Islam, Rashidi Islam, Umayyad Islam, Abbasid Islam, Ottoman Islam and modern Islam. Sometimes, according to race, there is Arab Islam, Indian Islam, Turkish Islam, and the Islam of the Malaysian And so on and so forth. Sometimes, according to the doctrine, there is Sunni Islam and Shiite Islam. They even divide the Sunni and the Shia into divisions. New divisions have also been created; there is revolutionary Islam, reactionary Islam, radical Islam, classical Islam, right-wing Islam, leftist Islam, orthodox Islam, modern Islam and, finally, political Islam, spiritual Islam and theological Islam. Why do they invent such divisions that are rejected in Islam? The truth is that these divisions are all unacceptable in the eyes of a Muslim; there is only one Islam, which has no partners, which recognizes no other; it is the first Islam, the Islam of the Quran and Sunnah. (Accusing Islam with Politics by Dr. Yusuf Qaradawi, 10/28/2011)8

Indeed, even Qaradawi who himself does not understand Islam had this one right; there is only one true Islam. What he iswrong about is that Islam is not from God but is of the devil. Period.

And since no human fully understands the devil, they have it wrong; they do not understand Islam. No Muslim understands Islam. To understand Islam, we all, rich and poor, lame and mute, grew up taking a copy of that green colored book; its cover was illuminated in beautiful Arabic gold script.

We were made to read it while we reclined our backs on stone hewn columns surmounted by decorated arches. We mesmerized our inner souls hearing ourselves reciting incomprehensible abstract thoughts and fragmented verses while bobbing our heads sitting under melancholy domed shrines that hovered over these beautiful specimens of Persian rugs donated courtesy of wealthy Arab princes.

It was rather a peculiar hodgepodge they all said was divine. For over millennia it was a bestseller in the east and still is. Everyone had external reverence that at any moment when they heard the recitation in the ancient classical Arabic tongue they become hypnotized by some external force, humbling themselves, ready to carry out sacred instructions to kill infidels as if under a spell from the Master Hypnotist.

No giant would even dare call this book a fiction, in respect to its avid readers who believed it was sent to them from the seventh heavendictaphoned by a colorful angel of lightto a humble illiterate servant of God. My life journey to understanding Islam was filled with thorns and obstacles, which I finally managed to pluck out of my wandering soul. The prickling thorns were thrust to my side by what was left behind from the writ of a sojourner named Muhammad who once alleged that a bright angel of light once visited him while he frequented a mysterious cave called Ghar Hira in Arabia.

There he was dictaphonedso he claimedthe word of a god named Maliki-Rab-ul-Alameen, The King-Lord of The Worlds who was the god of this world and the god of the underworld. The sojourner who claimed to be prophet then desired to ascend to heaven, to the most high. So he alleged that one night that he was transported in a twinkling of an eye far away up to the heavens riding on the back of another being, a hybrid of a winged steed, part woman, part peacock he called Buraq.

But the time I only began to understand something about Islam was the day I opened a Bible when I still was Muslim in 1993. I ineluctably began to turn its pages. As it turned out it spoke of such stories of this Buraq already mentioned in the Quran even foretelling that story a millennium before of a rebellious beautiful bright angel of light, with every precious stone was your covering: the ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; the lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; and the gold, the workmanship of your setting and sockets was in you *(Ezekiel 28:13)* He than arose to be the worlds leadingheresiarch, an Antichrist who denies Father and Son (1 John 2:22) and claimed in his Al-Isra Wal-Miraj to have ascended to heaven (Isaiah 14:13) reaching the seventh heaven claiming, as it says in Isaiah 14:13, You said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God claiming to meet God who ordered him to rule over all of mankind, angels and the whole multitudes of demons.

Then I read Gods oracles concerning the Desert which God called Babylon, Dumah, Kedar and even Arabia with a proclamation that said: Babylon is fallen, is fallen, (Isaiah 21:9, Revelation 18:1-2) These were all in the land of the sojourner, the man with the Buraq steed and are where the city of that virgin bride cloaked in black silk, decked with silver and gold.

And for my predilection to read this book (the Bible) over the other (Quran), the giants said that they would sever my head as they severed the heads of thousand thousands before me. Yet even this peril was foretold in the book, which they forbade us to read. Then, and way later, when I dared to speak negatively of it, the media giants who even knew the book was hypnotic fiction, were grieved and alleged that I knew little about the sacred text. Publishers avoided me fearing the frenzy of the mobs, the same mobs that converged like a river once a year swirling roundabout the idol they had erected long ago in the midst of this Babel telling me that Islam was peaceful.

Was Islam peaceful when Omar bin Al-Khattab began to advance into Christian Byzantine territory? Was Islam peaceful and did not behave as ISIS did when Muslims during the decisive Battle of Yarmouk in August 636 when the Christian Emperor Heraclius was defeated by Islamic hordes?

Was Islam not behaving like ISIS when Sophronius, the Christian Arab from Bethlehem who was at the time Patriarch of Jerusalem, how in his sermon on the Day of the Epiphany 636 A.D. he bewailed the destruction of the churches and monasteries, how the sacked towns, the fields laid waste, the villages burned down by the Muslim nomads who were overrunning the country then to later invade Jerusalem itself and occupy it under Umar bin Al-Khattab.

Was Saudi Arabia and Qatar not acting like ISIS when they send incursions into Syria of replicas of the same ancient savages, beheading Christians, raping, burning and destroying everything in sight; the American Christian initially was unaware, despite our warnings, that he would take the side of such savages in full support of the so-called Free Syrian Army, Muslims from different nations whom converged into Syria to carry out the Harlots interest of Saudi Arabia.

The American have not learned the lessons from history about what Arabia has done to the Christian world beginning in the conquest of Christian Syria in 637, the conquest of Christian Armenia, 639, to later massacre 1.2 Million Armenian Christians in 1915.

Have we seen any difference between the Islam of ISIS and the Islam of the Ottomans?

And then we had the conquest of Christian Egypt in 639 A.D., in which the population of the Christian Copts gradually decreased from nine million to 700,000 at the early 1900s.

And Egypt is an important case-in-point regarding peaceful Islam. It is a fact of history that the Egyptians allowed the Muslims into their country. When the Egyptian populace heard that the Muslims were arriving, they accepted them with open arms, not seeing them as deceiving heretics, but as people who merely believed in the one true God. Their open mindedness would have received the applause of the moderns, but the end result was the consequence of all ultra equality and tolerance: violence. For decades I roamed the world of cowards, politicians, media giants and even conservatives who claimed to believe in the purists of truths to only find out they were riddled with the ignorance that was born out of their inner fears. They too would not dare call the devil devil. But I stood and confronted the wizards; these goliaths that carried swords in one hand and that book of fictions they used for shield in the other telling them that their victories with the sword will be until all bow towards their image, but as long as there are a few who choose their scimitar blade over prostrating in submission to tyranny, that victory is for the slain who refuse to bow to their devil.

The Bible proclaimed warnings to the nave multitudes foretelling even these giants, the ones with the scimitars, coming to the city gates proclaiming that Islam is peace peace peace. For decades, I began to shout from the rooftops. The giants are coming With Trojan horses they come to the city gates they bring charmers, wizards and star gazers they deceive by peace to only find out that I am but a lone voice crying in the wilderness; a watchman on walls sounding a trumpet to nave western multitudes dazzled by charmers and the stargazers whose outcry of hes a liar an impostor an ant who never saw giants there are no Trojan horses at the city gates while the naive slander with a sharp tongue saying that my declarations were fiction, that I need to be brought down from the city walls and sent into banishment.

So they sent the giants to bring me down, but their efforts were all in vain. In this hear the sound of my trumpet, hear not and your blood is on your hands.

The Portal: ISIS?

Recently, a jihadist groupentered Iraq from Syria and conquered a significant part of its territory:

Their purpose is to create atotalitarian Islamic state in that territory and they call it Islamic State of Iraqand Syria (ISIS).

That group is a jointcreation of the Saudis and the US Cabal (with Jesuits and theirBlackwater/Academi friends behind the scenes):

The agenda of the US Cabalis to create a pretext for military invasion and thus prolong the life of thepetrodollar:

And for themilitary-industrial complex to pocket some nice profits:

On a deeper level, there isan occult war going on. 4300 years ago, the Annunaki Archon overlords of theCabal created what is called the Akkadian empire:

The Akkadian empire was anextremely violent and patriarchal society which was created to suppress a veryimportant Goddess energy vortex, created in the same region over 7000 years ago bythe Halaf and Hassuna-Samarra cultures:

Now the same Archons,incarnated into Black Nobility families, want to create a dark empire of horrorin the exactly same region to suppress that Goddess energy vortex even further.

It is interesting to note that the invasion of ISIS militants began in the city of Samarra, which is in the center of that Goddess vortex and was also the seat of the Abbasid Caliphate. Abbasid dynasty in the 9th century was connected with the secret White Nobility lineages and triggered the Islamic golden age with great progress in science and art:

http://naptimewriter.blogspot.com/2010/10/abbasid-caliphate.html

The Archons are quiteskilled occultists. What they do is to take a symbol of Light and use massmedia propaganda to entrain people to associate that symbol with darkness, painand suffering and to suppress Goddess energy. Thus they prevent an enormousamount of Light from flowing into the minds and hearts of people. They havedone so with number 666 (once a sacred number of Goddess Venus, now a symbol ofthe dark forces in the mind of the masses), with the pentagram (once a sacredsymbol of Goddess Venus and now a symbol of black magic for the uneducatedmasses), with Lucifer (once a symbol of Goddess Venus- Light bearer- morningstar, now a symbol of the leader of the dark forces for the unaware), withswastika (once a symbol of spiritual evolution and now associated with Nazism).

You can read a god articleabout that here:

The Archons havedeliberately chosen ISIS as the name of the jihadist group and their Islamic stateto associate the name of Isis (she is a Goddess of Light) with darkness andhorror in the minds of the human masses, especially now after we have partiallyopened the IS:IS portal and when there is great further potential for Goddessawakening in 2014. Therefore Isis is not a Cabal-friendly Goddess, theIlluminati just try to misuse her beautiful energy for their nefarious purposes. Ironically,the name Illuminati means the enlightened ones, when in reality those peopleare the furthest away from true spiritual enlightenment.

To clarify the situation, Goddess Isis does not support ISIS, Isis wants peace, and peace it will be.

ISIS Spokesman Calls for Attacks on Arab Nations – The New …

The June recording echoed a much-quoted speech by the groups original spokesman, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, that was released in 2014 the year ISIS pivoted from a regional threat to a global one. The 2014 speech was routinely quoted by attackers across the world as justification for their acts of violence, including in video wills left by the suicide bombers who blew themselves up at a stadium and concert hall in Paris in 2015.

Now, it appears that the groups canvas has shrunk and it is returning to its roots as a regional insurgency.

Hassan Hassan, a resident fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy, said the speech was in line with the groups recent evolution. It aligns perfectly with ISISs recent moves, of going ever more internal, he said in a series of Tweets.

ISIS is an outgrowth of the group that was once Al Qaedas affiliate in Iraq, and for years the affiliate clashed with the larger terrorist group over whether it was strategically sound to carry out massacres against Shiite Muslims. As far back as 2005, the second-in-command of Al Qaeda upbraided the affiliate in a 6,500-word letter, saying the group should focus on expelling American troops, and hold off on attacking Shiites in Iraq and neighboring Arab countries until that first goal was accomplished.

But the group that went on to become ISIS disregarded this counsel from the beginning, dragging Iraq into a bloody sectarian conflict.

In 2014, after seizing territory the size of Britain in Iraq and Syria, ISIS aggressively carried out attacks on enemies in the region, even while laying the groundwork for successive attacks overseas. For much of the three years that it held onto a vast territory, ISIS appeared intent on fighting on all fronts, with fighters in Europe and suicide bombers in the crowded markets of Baghdad, as well as targets in Lebanon and Iran.

In Mr. al-Muhajirs latest audio statement, he cited texts from the puritanical Wahhabi tradition to create a spiritual rationale for killing ever more Muslims not just Shiites, but also Sunnis, whom ISIS claims to represent.

He focused especially on Iraqs parliamentary elections that are scheduled to begin on May 12, calling anyone who collaborates with the Iraqi government a legitimate target. The polling centers and those inside it are a target of our swords, he said. So stay away from them and do not walk near them.

At the same time, the ISIS spokesman mocked the United States, taunting President Trump.

Without naming him, Mr. al-Muhajir said America had lost its influence under the current administration. Look at you, you evildoer, confused and lost, and with your goals scattered. You are now forced to beg and go along the wishes of your supposed adversaries, he said, in an apparent reference to Russia.

ISIS suicide bombing at Afghanistan voter registration center …

At least 57 people were killed when a suicide bomber struck a voter registration center in Afghanistan’s capital in an attack claimed by the Islamic State terror group.

Public Health Ministry spokesman Wahid Majro told the Associated Press that 119 people were wounded in the massive blast in Kabul, which shattered windows miles away from the attack site.

Majro told TOLO News the wounded have been taken to a number of Kabul hospitals, and that officials are orking to identify the victims.

Majro said there were five small children and 21 women among the dead. More than a dozen children and nearly 50 women were wounded, he said, adding that the tolls could still rise.

Police blocked all roads to the blast site, with only ambulances allowed in.

Local TV stations broadcast live footage of hundreds of distraught people gathered at nearby hospitals seeking word about loved ones.

Gen. Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, told the AP the suicide bomber targeted civilians who had gathered to receive national identification cards. Afghanistan will hold parliamentary elections in October.

ISIS claimed responsibility in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency, saying it had targeted Shiite “apostates.”

US DROPS MORE BOMBS IN AFGHANISTAN AS WAR AGAINST ISIS WINDS DOWN

The bombing on Sunday was the fourth attack on the election process since voter registration started last Saturday, according to TOLO News.

Last week, three police officers responsible for guarding voter registration centers in two Afghan provinces were killed by militants, according to authorities.

Afghan security forces have struggled to prevent attacks by ISIS as well as the more firmly established Taliban since the U.S. and NATO concluded their combat mission at the end of 2014.

Both groups regularly launch attacks, with the Taliban usually targeting the government and security forces, and IS targeting the country’s Shiite minority.

Both groups want to establish a harsh form of Islamic rule in Afghanistan, and are opposed to democratic elections.

ISIS – Facts & Summary – HISTORY.com

In response to ISIS violence, various countriesincluding the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, several Arab nations and other countrieshave initiated efforts to defeat the terrorist group.

In 2014, a U.S.-led coalition started airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria. That same year, the Pentagon announced a program to train Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS. However, this initiative was nixed a year later when only about 150 rebels were recruited.

The United States has primarily used targeted airstrikes and special operations forces to fight ISIS. In 2015, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. had launched nearly 9,000 airstrikes on ISIS.The United States military dropped its most powerful non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS compound in Afghanistan in April 2017.

Reports have suggested ISIS has weakened both militarily and financially. The group has lost control of large amounts of territory in Iraq, and several of its leaders have been killed.

While notable gains against ISIS have been made, international efforts to control this powerful terrorist organization will likely continue for many years.

We were made to read it while we reclined our backs on stone hewn columns surmounted by decorated arches. We mesmerized our inner souls hearing ourselves reciting incomprehensible abstract thoughts and fragmented verses while bobbing our heads sitting under melancholy domed shrines that hovered over these beautiful specimens of Persian rugs donated courtesy of wealthy Arab princes. It was rather a peculiar hodgepodge they all said was divine. For over millennia it was a bestseller in the east and still is. Everyone had external reverence that at any moment when they heard the recitation in the ancient classical Arabic tongue they become hypnotized by some external force, humbling themselves, ready to carry out sacred instructions to kill infidels as if under a spell from the Master Hypnotist. No giant would even dare call this book a fiction, in respect to its avid readers who believed it was sent to them from the seventh heavendictaphoned by a colorful angel of lightto a humble illiterate servant of God. My life journey to understanding Islam was filled with thorns and obstacles, which I finally managed to pluck out of my wandering soul. The prickling thorns were thrust to my side by what was left behind from the writ of a sojourner named Muhammad who once alleged that a bright angel of light once visited him while he frequented a mysterious cave called Ghar Hira in Arabia. There he was dictaphonedso he claimedthe word of a god named Maliki-Rab-ul-Alameen, The King-Lord of The Worlds who was the god of this world and the god of the underworld. The sojourner who claimed to be prophet then desired to ascend to heaven, to the most high. So he alleged that one night that he was transported in a twinkling of an eye far away up to the heavens riding on the back of another being, a hybrid of a winged steed, part woman, part peacock he called Buraq. But the time I only began to understand something about Islam was the day I opened a Bible when I still was Muslim in 1993. I ineluctably began to turn its pages. As it turned out it spoke of such stories of this Buraq already mentioned in the Quran even foretelling that story a millennium before of a rebellious beautiful bright angel of light, with every precious stone was your covering: the ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; the lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; and the gold, the workmanship of your setting and sockets was in you *(Ezekiel 28:13)* He than arose to be the worlds leadingheresiarch, an Antichrist who denies Father and Son (1 John 2:22) and claimed in his Al-Isra Wal-Miraj to have ascended to heaven (Isaiah 14:13) reaching the seventh heaven claiming, as it says in Isaiah 14:13, You said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God claiming to meet God who ordered him to rule over all of mankind, angels and the whole multitudes of demons. Then I read Gods oracles concerning the Desert which God called Babylon, Dumah, Kedar and even Arabia with a proclamation that said: Babylon is fallen, is fallen, (Isaiah 21:9, Revelation 18:1-2) These were all in the land of the sojourner, the man with the Buraq steed and are where the city of that virgin bride cloaked in black silk, decked with silver and gold. And for my predilection to read this book (the Bible) over the other (Quran), the giants said that they would sever my head as they severed the heads of thousand thousands before me. Yet even this peril was foretold in the book, which they forbade us to read. Then, and way later, when I dared to speak negatively of it, the media giants who even knew the book was hypnotic fiction, were grieved and alleged that I knew little about the sacred text. Publishers avoided me fearing the frenzy of the mobs, the same mobs that converged like a river once a year swirling roundabout the idol they had erected long ago in the midst of this Babel telling me that Islam was peaceful. Was Islam peaceful when Omar bin Al-Khattab began to advance into Christian Byzantine territory? Was Islam peaceful and did not behave as ISIS did when Muslims during the decisive Battle of Yarmouk in August 636 when the Christian Emperor Heraclius was defeated by Islamic hordes? Was Islam not behaving like ISIS when Sophronius, the Christian Arab from Bethlehem who was at the time Patriarch of Jerusalem, how in his sermon on the Day of the Epiphany 636 A.D. he bewailed the destruction of the churches and monasteries, how the sacked towns, the fields laid waste, the villages burned down by the Muslim nomads who were overrunning the country then to later invade Jerusalem itself and occupy it under Umar bin Al-Khattab. Was Saudi Arabia and Qatar not acting like ISIS when they send incursions into Syria of replicas of the same ancient savages, beheading Christians, raping, burning and destroying everything in sight; the American Christian initially was unaware, despite our warnings, that he would take the side of such savages in full support of the so-called Free Syrian Army, Muslims from different nations whom converged into Syria to carry out the Harlots interest of Saudi Arabia. The American have not learned the lessons from history about what Arabia has done to the Christian world beginning in the conquest of Christian Syria in 637, the conquest of Christian Armenia, 639, to later massacre 1.2 Million Armenian Christians in 1915. Have we seen any difference between the Islam of ISIS and the Islam of the Ottomans? And then we had the conquest of Christian Egypt in 639 A.D., in which the population of the Christian Copts gradually decreased from nine million to 700,000 at the early 1900s. And Egypt is an important case-in-point regarding peaceful Islam. It is a fact of history that the Egyptians allowed the Muslims into their country. When the Egyptian populace heard that the Muslims were arriving, they accepted them with open arms, not seeing them as deceiving heretics, but as people who merely believed in the one true God. Their open mindedness would have received the applause of the moderns, but the end result was the consequence of all ultra equality and tolerance: violence. For decades I roamed the world of cowards, politicians, media giants and even conservatives who claimed to believe in the purists of truths to only find out they were riddled with the ignorance that was born out of their inner fears. They too would not dare call the devil devil. But I stood and confronted the wizards; these goliaths that carried swords in one hand and that book of fictions they used for shield in the other telling them that their victories with the sword will be until all bow towards their image, but as long as there are a few who choose their scimitar blade over prostrating in submission to tyranny, that victory is for the slain who refuse to bow to their devil. The Bible proclaimed warnings to the nave multitudes foretelling even these giants, the ones with the scimitars, coming to the city gates proclaiming that Islam is peace peace peace. For decades, I began to shout from the rooftops. The giants are coming With Trojan horses they come to the city gates they bring charmers, wizards and star gazers they deceive by peace to only find out that I am but a lone voice crying in the wilderness; a watchman on walls sounding a trumpet to nave western multitudes dazzled by charmers and the stargazers whose outcry of hes a liar an impostor an ant who never saw giants there are no Trojan horses at the city gates while the naive slander with a sharp tongue saying that my declarations were fiction, that I need to be brought down from the city walls and sent into banishment. So they sent the giants to bring me down, but their efforts were all in vain. In this hear the sound of my trumpet, hear not and your blood is on your hands.

The Portal: ISIS?

Recently, a jihadist groupentered Iraq from Syria and conquered a significant part of its territory: Their purpose is to create atotalitarian Islamic state in that territory and they call it Islamic State of Iraqand Syria (ISIS). That group is a jointcreation of the Saudis and the US Cabal (with Jesuits and theirBlackwater/Academi friends behind the scenes): The agenda of the US Cabalis to create a pretext for military invasion and thus prolong the life of thepetrodollar: And for themilitary-industrial complex to pocket some nice profits: On a deeper level, there isan occult war going on. 4300 years ago, the Annunaki Archon overlords of theCabal created what is called the Akkadian empire: The Akkadian empire was anextremely violent and patriarchal society which was created to suppress a veryimportant Goddess energy vortex, created in the same region over 7000 years ago bythe Halaf and Hassuna-Samarra cultures: Now the same Archons,incarnated into Black Nobility families, want to create a dark empire of horrorin the exactly same region to suppress that Goddess energy vortex even further. It is interesting to note that the invasion of ISIS militants began in the city of Samarra, which is in the center of that Goddess vortex and was also the seat of the Abbasid Caliphate. Abbasid dynasty in the 9th century was connected with the secret White Nobility lineages and triggered the Islamic golden age with great progress in science and art: http://naptimewriter.blogspot.com/2010/10/abbasid-caliphate.html The Archons are quiteskilled occultists. What they do is to take a symbol of Light and use massmedia propaganda to entrain people to associate that symbol with darkness, painand suffering and to suppress Goddess energy. Thus they prevent an enormousamount of Light from flowing into the minds and hearts of people. They havedone so with number 666 (once a sacred number of Goddess Venus, now a symbol ofthe dark forces in the mind of the masses), with the pentagram (once a sacredsymbol of Goddess Venus and now a symbol of black magic for the uneducatedmasses), with Lucifer (once a symbol of Goddess Venus- Light bearer- morningstar, now a symbol of the leader of the dark forces for the unaware), withswastika (once a symbol of spiritual evolution and now associated with Nazism). You can read a god articleabout that here: The Archons havedeliberately chosen ISIS as the name of the jihadist group and their Islamic stateto associate the name of Isis (she is a Goddess of Light) with darkness andhorror in the minds of the human masses, especially now after we have partiallyopened the IS:IS portal and when there is great further potential for Goddessawakening in 2014. Therefore Isis is not a Cabal-friendly Goddess, theIlluminati just try to misuse her beautiful energy for their nefarious purposes. Ironically,the name Illuminati means the enlightened ones, when in reality those peopleare the furthest away from true spiritual enlightenment. To clarify the situation, Goddess Isis does not support ISIS, Isis wants peace, and peace it will be.

ISIS Spokesman Calls for Attacks on Arab Nations – The New …

The June recording echoed a much-quoted speech by the groups original spokesman, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, that was released in 2014 the year ISIS pivoted from a regional threat to a global one. The 2014 speech was routinely quoted by attackers across the world as justification for their acts of violence, including in video wills left by the suicide bombers who blew themselves up at a stadium and concert hall in Paris in 2015. Now, it appears that the groups canvas has shrunk and it is returning to its roots as a regional insurgency. Hassan Hassan, a resident fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy, said the speech was in line with the groups recent evolution. It aligns perfectly with ISISs recent moves, of going ever more internal, he said in a series of Tweets. ISIS is an outgrowth of the group that was once Al Qaedas affiliate in Iraq, and for years the affiliate clashed with the larger terrorist group over whether it was strategically sound to carry out massacres against Shiite Muslims. As far back as 2005, the second-in-command of Al Qaeda upbraided the affiliate in a 6,500-word letter, saying the group should focus on expelling American troops, and hold off on attacking Shiites in Iraq and neighboring Arab countries until that first goal was accomplished. But the group that went on to become ISIS disregarded this counsel from the beginning, dragging Iraq into a bloody sectarian conflict. In 2014, after seizing territory the size of Britain in Iraq and Syria, ISIS aggressively carried out attacks on enemies in the region, even while laying the groundwork for successive attacks overseas. For much of the three years that it held onto a vast territory, ISIS appeared intent on fighting on all fronts, with fighters in Europe and suicide bombers in the crowded markets of Baghdad, as well as targets in Lebanon and Iran. In Mr. al-Muhajirs latest audio statement, he cited texts from the puritanical Wahhabi tradition to create a spiritual rationale for killing ever more Muslims not just Shiites, but also Sunnis, whom ISIS claims to represent. He focused especially on Iraqs parliamentary elections that are scheduled to begin on May 12, calling anyone who collaborates with the Iraqi government a legitimate target. The polling centers and those inside it are a target of our swords, he said. So stay away from them and do not walk near them. At the same time, the ISIS spokesman mocked the United States, taunting President Trump. Without naming him, Mr. al-Muhajir said America had lost its influence under the current administration. Look at you, you evildoer, confused and lost, and with your goals scattered. You are now forced to beg and go along the wishes of your supposed adversaries, he said, in an apparent reference to Russia.

ISIS – Facts & Summary – HISTORY.com

In response to ISIS violence, various countriesincluding the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, several Arab nations and other countrieshave initiated efforts to defeat the terrorist group. In 2014, a U.S.-led coalition started airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria. That same year, the Pentagon announced a program to train Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS. However, this initiative was nixed a year later when only about 150 rebels were recruited. The United States has primarily used targeted airstrikes and special operations forces to fight ISIS. In 2015, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. had launched nearly 9,000 airstrikes on ISIS.The United States military dropped its most powerful non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS compound in Afghanistan in April 2017. Reports have suggested ISIS has weakened both militarily and financially. The group has lost control of large amounts of territory in Iraq, and several of its leaders have been killed. While notable gains against ISIS have been made, international efforts to control this powerful terrorist organization will likely continue for many years.
