Watch: Radical Islamist Who Stomped On American Flag Just Received Justice In A Big Way

“We kill the white men, we kill the white women, we kill the white children, we kill the white babies…. If they are white kill ’em all.” Those shocking words were part of a threatening, racist rant reportedly issued by a radical Islamist who has just been taken into custody in Florida after a month-long search.

Authorities say that 21-year-old Eric Sheppard was apprehended in Tampa on Thursday — an arrest warrant had been out for Sheppard since a gun was found in a backpack that belonged to the Valdosta State University student. It was at that university in Georgia where Sheppard was confronted last month by an Air Force veteran who took possession of a U.S. flag on which the man had been stomping as part of an anti-America protest.

As Western Journalism reported earlier this month, that protest led to a social media movement encouraging others to similarly desecrate the flag. The Twitter hashtag #EricSheppardChallenge attracted a number of protesters who supported the offensive gesture with words and pictures.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch WCTV News coverage of the arrest of Eric Sheppard, who — as The Daily Caller points out — has been associated with the Nation of Islam, the New Black Panther Party and the Black Supremacy movement.

Wow: Islamists Just Blamed The Texas Flooding On Something Infuriating

Image for representational purposes only.

As major flooding and severe weather surged through Texas and Oklahoma over the last several days, Islamists and ISIS supporters took to Twitter to identify the natural disasters as acts of Allah.

The torrential rains and subsequent flooding are responsible for the deaths of at least 21 people in Texas and Oklahoma and another 14 in northern Mexico.

ISIS supporters linked the floods to Allah’s wrath for the Draw the Prophet cartoon contest, which took place in Dallas earlier this month. Two ISIS jihadists were shot and killed when they sought to carry out an attack against those attending the event.

This Islamist tweets Bismillah [“In the name of Allah”] and then highlights the deaths that have been caused by the flooding.

Tweet - Flooding ISISThe person who tweeted the above does not seem concerned that the city hardest hit was Houston, which is over 230 miles south of Dallas. And certainly the state of Oklahoma and the country of Mexico had no connection to the contest.

If what this ISIS supporter writes is true, what meaning are Americans to draw from the natural disasters, such as earthquakes, that frequent the Middle East, sometimes killing thousands? Or what about the tsunami that struck the most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia, in 2004? The total dead from that disaster was over 230,000. What punishment was in play in these instances?

This follower appears to be mixing his Near Eastern and Middle Eastern religions:

Twitter Flooding ISIS IIIMany may believe these folks’ understanding of the ways of Allah needs to be thought through a little more.

What Will Soon Happen To The ‘Taliban 5′ Makes Bergdahl Trade Look Even Worse For Obama

The so-called “Taliban Five,” who were exchanged for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of 2014, could be free to re-enter the battlefield as early as Monday.

Bergdahl was charged with desertion in March of this year after disappearing from his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

By the terms of the exchange, the five fighters, who were hand-picked by the Taliban, were to remain in Qatar under government surveillance for one year following their release from Guantanamo Bay.

According to Fox News, at least three of the five have already sought to reconnect with their old terror networks since arriving in Qatar.

Joint Task Force Guantanamo, which oversees the facility, classified all five men as “high risk,” not eligible for release.

Among them is Abdul Haq Wasiq, who served as deputy minister of intelligence for the Taliban; Mullah Mohammad Fazi, deputy defense minister for the Taliban; Mullah Norullah Noori, a senior military commander; Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, a former provincial governor who reputedly met with Iran to plot attacks against American forces; and Mohammad Nabi Omari, who has held multiple leadership roles in various terrorist groups.

Many lawmakers believe if these men are allowed to leave Qatar, they will very likely return to the battlefield.

“It’s impossible for me to see how they don’t rejoin the fight in short order,” said Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“In Congress, we spent a lot of time debating whether the Qataris were going to adequately keep an eye on them in the course of the 12 months,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. “My point all along was that I’m more worried about month No. 13 than the first 12.”

At the time of their release, Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., a member of the Armed Services Committee, said all the men “have American blood on their hands and surely as night follows day they will return to the fight.”

The Obama administration, which celebrated Bergdahl’s release with a Rose Garden ceremony, is reportedly in talks with Qatar to try to extend the Taliban Five’s travel ban; but as the deadline approaches, no agreement has been announced.

Joe Kasper, spokesman for House Armed Services Committee member Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., said his office has gotten “radio silence” from the administration when they ask about the issue.

“They have to be concerned with what happens to the five Taliban because they made every effort to portray the trade as a good deal,” Kasper wrote in an email to Fox News. “The nightmare scenario for the Administration is if any of these guys show up again within the global battlespace, be it in some kind of leadership position or just as messengers of threats or propaganda.”

At the time of the Taliban Five’s release, several lawmakers from both parties complained that the White House did not give a 30-day notice of the swap, which is required by law. The administration said they could not wait because Bergdahl’s life was in danger.

Watch: This Muslim Killed 2 Terrorists, So ISIS Found Horrific New Way To Kill Him

As ISIS continues to spread its reign of terror across the Middle East, video has emerged of the group using an RPG (rocket propelled grenade) to execute a Syrian Muslim man who fought against the Islamic State.

Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim Brotherhood terrorist who converted to Christianity, shared the graphic ISIS-produced video on his site, which YouTube has since taken down. The video shows a Muslim rebel from eastern Syria (near the Iraqi border), Ibrahim Shraideh, tied to a post confessing to ISIS interrogators that he had used an RPG to kill two ISIS fighters. It is not clear whether the ISIS fighters were in a vehicle or protected position, which would be some likely scenarios for use of the weapon.

The ISIS fighters in the video say because Shraideh used an RPG to kill their fighters, they would use an RPG to execute him. They quoted the Quran as justification:

“And one who attacketh you, attack him in like manner as he attacked you.” (Q:2:194)

Shoebat shared the translated dialogue:

ISIS: Listen here, what’s your name?

VICTIM: Ibrahim Shraideh.

ISIS: Where are you from?

Victim: Abu Haman

ISIS: What have you done?

VICTIM: I have fired an RPG

ISIS: how many brothers of ours have you killed?

VICTIM: Two.

ISIS: You killed them?

VICTIM: Yes.

ISIS: Ok very well, that’s not a problem.

ISIS to group: He’s an enemy of Allah. He killed to [sic] brothers with an RPG and by Allah’s will he’ll be punished the same way with an RPG.

Another Terrorist: The one who begins the mischief is the evil-doer.

The ISIS executioner then launched the RPG, killing the man.

You can watch an edited version of the video below. Graphic images have been removed.

The terrorist group has been described as very adept at using social media to attract followers and instill fear. The group has posted videos of mass executions of Christians and burned alive a caged Jordanian pilot who had been shot down over Syria late last year.

BREAKING: Islamic State Seizes Town In Syria And Tries Again To Set Up Camp On The Israeli Border

Today the Islamic State again won a major battle, this time in Syria.

After being pushed out of some neighborhoods of the ancient town of Palmyra on Monday, Islamic State fighters now control almost all of Palmyra after violent clashes with Assad’s forces and its Shiite allies, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported an hour ago.

Syrian state television reported earlier this evening that Assad’s forces were battling large groups of ISIS fighters and citizens of Palmyra were evacuated.

The BBC reported that Syria’s head of antiquities, Maamoun Abdul Karim, said the world has the responsibility to save Palmyra, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Known as Tadmor in the Bible, tradition holds the city was first fortified by the Israelite King Solomon over 3,000 years ago.

Hundreds of statues have been moved to safety, but large monuments could not be moved.

IS militants have ransacked and demolished several ancient sites that predate Islam in Iraq, including Hatra and Nimrud, leading to fears that it might attempt to damage or destroy Palmyra.

In southwest Syria, ISIS is still trying to set up camp in the vicinity of Kuneitra, close to the Israeli border. Israeli news radio station Reshet Beth reported today that two days ago, the Free Syrian Army, in cooperation with the Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra, overpowered fighters of the Islamic State affiliate Shuhada al-Yarmouk Brigades. This was the second time in a month Islamic State fighters were driven out of the area.

Over the last two weeks, a number of mortar shells landed in Israeli territory on the Golan Heights, but this time Israel chose not to respond in order to avoid undermining the effort to drive out ISIS from the area.

The fighting against ISIS on the Golan Heights is solely carried out by the Free Syrian Army, which is backed by the West and reportedly receives aid from Israel and al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, which declared war on the Islamic State last week. Israeli defense officials claim the fighters of al-Nusra on the Golan Heights are simply local residents who joined the organization to benefit from the logistical and financial support it offers them.

Elsewhere in Syria, ISIS last week launched an offensive, supported by multiple suicide operations, in the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor against President Assad’s regime holdouts at the military air base.

Islamic State also recently clashed with Syrian rebels and the regime in the eastern countryside of Aleppo and the provinces of Homs and Hama.

The Islamic State’s gains in Iraq are not confined to Ramadi. The group has advanced deep into the Baiji oil refinery, the largest in the country. Islamic State has, since the fall of Ramadi, pushed on with an attack on the town of Khalidiya. If ISIS succeeds to seize the town, it will provide the necessary territorial depth to advance on Baghdad.

It is clear from all these developments that the U.S. policy of airstrikes and a sporadic ground action to take out an ISIS commander has failed. It will never be enough to stop the Islamic State from taking over more territory in Iraq and Syria because this strategy is allowing the group immense space for planning, maneuvering, and redeployment.

The White House, however, insists its overall Iraq policy is a success.
