Some of the Islamic State “Arabs” sure could use some sunblock. Where exactly are they based? Where do they sleep? Where do they do their banking? How did they pay for their fleet of pick-up trucks and sophisticated weaponry? How are they feeding and re-equipping their fighters? Where do their injured fighters get medical treatment?
Does the following quote from the crime syndicate media make any sense to you? Where did they get their “lethal” Superman-like technical ability?
“But Western intelligence services are also worried about their extraordinary command of seemingly less lethal weapons: state-of-the-art videos, ground images shot from drones and multilingual Twitter messages.”
If ISIS is indeed “using every contemporary mode of messaging to recruit fighters” as the article states, then why not answer their want ads and infest their ranks with undercover Arab agents? Then simply follow them to their lair and destroy them? What is so difficult here?
How exactly does ISIS’ “social media recruitment” campaign work anyway? Are they placing ads on Craigslist? CareerBuilder?
No, they cannot be spotted by satellite. They cannot be infiltrated by covert ops. Silver bullets, Holy Water and Crucifixes are powerless to stop them. Not even whole garlic cloves can stay the desert-dwelling men in black ski-masks and gloves away from their mission of attacking and destabilizing Israel’s neighbors (coincidentally, of course).
Somehow though even after alledged heavy fighting in Mosul, ISIS’s “overall force” is the same size as it was when the U.S. air campaign expanded into Syria three years ago. ISIS is famously adept at luring foreign fighters with promises of luxury cars and kittens; but Long War Journal’s Thomas Joscelyn was skeptical that recruitment could account for those numbers.
What the ISIS scam is really about:
An article from the early 1980s by Israeli diplomat and journalist Oded Yinon is most explicit about the ISIS scam. The “Yinon Plan” calls for the “dissolution” of “the entire Arab world including Egypt, Syria, Iraq and the Arabian peninsula.” Each country was to be made to “fall apart along sectarian and ethnic lines,” after which each resulting fragment would be “hostile” to its “neighbors.” Yinon incredibly claimed that:
“This state of affairs will be the guarantee for peace and security in the area in the long run”
According to Yinon, this Balkanization should be realized by fomenting discord and war among the Arabs. Iraq by any objective measure was a criminal hell storm.
“Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon.”
Sheldon Richman posited that:
“Inter-Arab confrontation promoted by the United States and Israel … would suit expansionist Israelis who have no wish to deal justly with the Palestinians and the Occupied Territories. The more dangerous the Middle East appears, the more Israeli leaders can count on the United States not to push for a fair settlement with the Palestinians. The American people, moreover, are likely to be more lenient toward Israel’s brutality if chaos prevails in the neighboring states.”
