WATCH What These Three Kurdish Women Did When Islamic State Started The Yazidi Genocide in Iraq

The British paper Daily Mail Mail interviewed three Kurdish women who formed an all-female combat unit to avenge the massacre of the Christian Yazidi minority by Islamic State in northern Iraq.

When ISIS came to Sinjar and started to murder Yazidis, including many children and women, the three decided to leave behind their native country (Turkey) and traveled to the autonomous area in Kurdistan, Iraq.

Islamic State started the ethnic cleansing of the Yazidis in August 2014 and forced captured Yazidis to choose between conversion to Islam and death or slavery. The women were often sold as sex slaves, and men were ruthlessly murdered–often by beheading.

Deaijly, one of the Kurdish women, told the Daily Mail that “they had heard from other fighters operating in the caves in Sinjar that ISIS massacred Yazidis four days before the US airstrikes, on August 3.”

“We smuggled ourselves there from Turkey on August 5. We heard that the Peshmerga had withdrawn and we heard the children were dying on the mountain.

“It was a difficult journey from Turkey. When we came the temperatures were scorching, but we were trained for that,” Deijly told the Daily Mail.

Raparin, another member of the female Kurdish Peshmerga combat unit, said that the women sometimes killed up to ten ISIS fighters a day. Their unit was part of the Peshmerga forces that succeeded in securing a corridor through which many Yazidis managed to escape to Syria.

The women are members of the PKK, the Turkish Kurdish Workers Party, which has long fought the central government in Turkey and is classified as a terrorist movement by many Western governments and Turkey.

“We are ‘one’ with the Yazidis and will fight ISIS to take revenge for the what has happened to the women,” Deijly said.

The women told the Daily Mail that they noticed that ISIS fighters were often drugged when the Kurds managed to capture them. They also claimed that ISIS’ propaganda is stronger than their fighting capabilities.

The three also confirmed that Islamic State fighters are afraid of being killed by women because they believe that in such a case, they will not receive the reward of 70 virgins (Jannah) when they go to heaven.

“When they know women are fighting, they run away,” Roza the third Kurdish woman said.

Deijly added: “I have killed many, but I am sure all of them will not find virgins in heaven.”

As Western Journalism reported earlier, the Kurds in Syria and Iraq have proven to be the only fighting force that has been able to defeat Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, despite a severe shortage of modern weaponry.

The U.S. administration refuses to deliver weapons directly to the Kurds in Iraq and insists that all weapon deliveries go via the central government in Baghdad. The Obama administration even blocked attempts by the Gulf States to deliver weapons to the Kurds in Syria and is now again dragging its feet after it recently promised to send a resupply shipment of one hundred pallets of arms and other aid to the Kurdish YPG militia and their allies in Syria.

The Washington Post reported that “several U.S. officials say that a White House decision to approve expanded aid has been expected for more than a week. Deliberations were complicated by the debate over Russia’s recent military moves in Syria, which Moscow describes as an effort to join the fight against the extremists.”

The situation has led one U.S. official to express his frustration with the slow process of approval. He called it “analysis paralysis.”

The Kurds and their Sunni Arab allies need the weapons to launch a massive assault on Raqqa, the capital of Islamic State’s Caliphate. A force of 25,000 men and women is reportedly waiting for orders to attack the Raqqa area and is said to have secured coalition air support for the assault.

As the Washington Post correctly observed, the delay in the delivery is connected to the Russian intervention in Syria. The Obama administration is currently re-assessing its strategy in Syria because of the game-changing Russian moves, according to some observers.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights leveled harsh criticism at the U.S.-led coalition for its ‘timid’ support of the groups fighting Islamic State. The organization reported that after a full year of coalition airstrikes in Syria, Islamic State has only lost 15 square kilometers of the territories under its control.

SOHR claims that 3550 people have died as a result of the coalition airstrikes; 225 of them were citizens, and 3178 others were Islamic State terrorists, according to the Syrian human rights organization.

Islamic State Uses Refugee Crisis To Smuggle 4,000 Jihadist Gunmen Into Europe

Last week, Western Journalism reported how Islamic State works to realize its end-times vision. This vision includes a future battle between Muslim armies and Western nations in the vicinity of Rome.

We also reported that Islamic State threatened to flood Europe with 500,000 Muslim refugees this year. Three hundred and thirty thousand refugees have already arrived since then, with a record 107,500 migrants arriving in Greece in July alone.

Since the publication of the article about ISIS’ end-times vision, an unprecedented refugee crisis has erupted in Europe that has caused a public outcry in many European countries.

It all started with the publication of a picture of a drowned three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey.

The mainstream media jumped on the death of the toddler to show the immorality of the West in light of the humanitarian tragedy in many Middle Eastern countries–and especially in Syria, where more than half of the population has been displaced as a result of the four-year-old civil war.

Most of the approx. 4 million refugees from Syria have been relocated in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, where they live in refugee camps under often difficult circumstances. Arab countries like Kuwait have pledged millions of dollars to facilitate their rehabilitation, but most of the money has yet to be transferred to the United Nations. Rich Arab countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have limited themselves to pledge financial aid, but took no action to elevate the crisis by taking in thousands of refugees.

Turkey recently drew up a plan to relocate most of its 1.6 million Syrian refugees in an ISIS-free buffer zone in Syria along the Turkish border.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan closed a deal with President Obama that would allow for U.S. warplanes to use the Turkish air force base Incirlik for strikes against Islamic State in exchange for U.S. support for Erdogan’s plan to create the ISIS-free buffer zone that would also foil Kurdish aspirations to establish an autonomous entity that would unite the Kurdish cantons along the Turkish border.

Syrian refugees have also been trying to reach Europe for some time now. Most of the Syrian refugees heading for Europe were educated people who had money. A trip to one of the Western European countries cost more than 4,000 dollars, and the bulk of the Syrian refugees are very poor people who could not afford the trip.

Recently, however, something has apparently changed. The refugees now flooding Europe are not ‘families’ as the mainstream media are trying to tell the public. Ninety percent of the Syrian and other Arab refugees who are now stuck in Budapest, Hungary, or at the Italian-French border are young, male and single, as this video clearly shows:

The Arab migrants also don’t behave like the average refugee who wants to apply for citizenship in one of the richer European countries. Bulos Kalamis, a Polish tourist who was present when Middle Eastern refugees tried to force their way into Austria on the Italian border, gave us the following eyewitness account:

Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria I saw a huge crowd of immigrants. With all solidarity to people in difficult circumstances, I have to say that what I saw arouses horror. This huge mass of people – sorry – but it’s an absolute wilderness … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting “We want Germany”. So what, Germany is now a paradise?

I saw an elderly Italian woman in a car that was surrounded by the immigrants. They pulled her by the hair out of the car and wanted to use it to go to Germany. They tried to topple the bus i was in. They threw feces at us, banging on the door for the driver to open it, spat on the glass. My question is- for what purpose? How do they want to assimilate in Germany? For a moment, i felt like in a warzone. I really feel sorry for these people, but if they would reach Poland – I do not think they would receive any understanding from us.

We spent three hours on the border, but failed to get through. The whole group was later transported back to Italy by the police. The bus is butchered, feces smeared, scratched, broken windows. And this is supposed to be an idea for the demographics? These big powerful hordes?

Among them there were almost no women and children – the vast majority was aggressive young men. Just yesterday I read the news on all the websites with real compassion, worried about their fate and today after what I saw I am just afraid. And I am happy they do not choose our country as their destination. We Poles are simply not ready to accept these people – neither culturally nor financially. I do not know if anyone is ready. A giant pathology is approaching the EU, one which we have never seen before. And sorry if anyone is offended by this entry.

A car with humanitarian aid came with food and water. They just toppled it and stole everything. With megaphones the Austrians announced a message that there is consensus for them to cross over the border – they wanted to register them and let them go on – but they did not understand these messages, none. And it was all the greatest horror … From those few thousand people nobody understood neither Italian nor English, or German, or Russian, or Spanish … What mattered was the law of the fist.

They fought for permission to move on, but they were already allowed to do so. They did not understand that! They broke into the French bus – everything was stolen in a short time. Never in my short life, I had no opportunity to watch such scenes and I feel that this is just the beginning. On a final note, it is worth helping, but not at any price.

Today, the news site of the British papers Daily and Sunday Express revealed that an Islamic State operative who was speaking on condition of anonymity had told BuzzFeed that more than 4,000 Jihadist gunmen had been smuggled into Europe together with other refugees.

The ISIS smuggler said that the 4,000 gunmen are ready to start operations in Europe, and that their infiltration into European countries is part of a larger plot that aims to avenge the air campaign by the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State.

If you might have doubts about what the ISIS smuggler said, consider this. Abdel Majid Touil, 22, was one of the refugees that arrived in Italy at the beginning of this year. Upon his arrival in Italy, he was caught on camera flashing a victory sign.

Weeks later, the same man was arrested after he reportedly butchered 21 tourists in the Bardo Museum in Tunis. Touil returned to Tunisia after he received an expulsion order from the Italian authorities. After the terrorist attack, he again fled to Italy on a boat full of refugees but was arrested by the Italian police in Milan.

Hillary’s ‘Grand Strategy’ For Mideast Brought Unnecessary Bloodbath

The current bloodbath in the Middle East is centered in formerly stable secular nations that the United States, over several presidential administrations, attempted to “democratize.” Under the Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton partnership, the destabilization was dramatically increased in an effort to find an overall fix, a grand strategy. That grand strategy was soon found in an all-encompassing plan to bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East via the Muslim Brotherhood.

The exact date the Muslim Brotherhood-White House relationship began is not known. However, the Wall Street Journal first reported on Secretary Hillary Clinton “reaching out” to the Muslim Brotherhood in 2011, shortly after the Egyptian government fell to protesters. The relationship must have actually begun much earlier. Clinton’s trusted aide, Huma Mahmood Abedin, had been steadily moving her toward the Muslim Brotherhood. How much will be revealed about Abedin in the “missing” emails on Hillary Clinton’s personal server used for State Department business has not yet been determined by the FBI.

Abedin at the time was U.S. deputy chief of staff at the State Department and had been a long time personal aide of Secretary Clinton. Abedin, whose mother and father were deeply involved in the Muslim Brotherhood leadership, convinced Clinton that to “control” the outcome of the Arab Spring and keep governments from falling into extremist hands, the United States must back “moderate” Islamist parties. Of course, her “moderate” solution was the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that works for the same end result as the Islamic State but is willing to get there at a slower pace.

The Obama/Clinton grand strategy for the Middle East was dealt with in depth in a Wall Street Journal article by Walter Russell Mead in 2013. Describing the grand strategy he wrote:

The plan was simple but elegant: The U.S. would work with moderate Islamist groups like Turkey’s AK Party and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood to make the Middle East more democratic. This would kill three birds with one stone. First, by aligning itself with these parties, the Obama administration would narrow the gap between the ‘moderate middle’ of the Muslim world and the U.S. Second, by showing Muslims that peaceful, moderate parties could achieve beneficial results, it would isolate the terrorists and radicals, further marginalizing them in the Islamic world. Finally, these groups with American support could bring democracy to more Middle Eastern countries, leading to improved economic and social conditions, gradually eradicating the ills and grievances that drove some people to fanatical and terroristic groups.

From the beginning of the Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood was assisted by the Obama White House in taking over nations that had been secular leaning, including Tunisia and Egypt, under the guiding hand of Hillary Clinton. The attempts in Libya and Syria failed, but those nations are still bleeding as a result. The main victims of the Abedin/Clinton plan accepted by the Obama White House have been the actual moderates, who are secularists, and, of course, the Christians.

Currently, the only nation under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood is our NATO “ally,” Turkey, which is supporting violence against Egypt for casting off the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 and voting in favor of a more secular government. Turkey also assisted tens of thousands of Sunni Islamist fighters to cross the border into Syria to war with the secular government there. Still, the Muslim Brotherhood has the full support of the Obama White House.

The delusional concept that having a “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood in control will somehow restrain “extremism” is alive and well at the White House. A blind eye is turned to the fact that 90 percent of the jihadists from all over the world going to fight jihad in Syria and Iraq have used Turkey as their entry point. With the Muslim Brotherhood as an ally, it is not possible for the White House to be critical of anything Muslim. This may explain Obama’s empty and duplicitous response to the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians on a beach in Libya by the ISIL.

President Obama could find no religious motivation for the killings at all! His White House issued a statement saying: “The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists. We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens. ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds. It is unconstrained by faith, sect, or ethnicity.”

Well, the Islamic State had tried to make the religious element as clear as they could. They even produced a polished production video showing the 21 Christian men, hands bound behind them, being led one-by-one along a beach to their brutal slaughter. They could be heard crying out “Ya Rabbi Yasou,” which translates as “Lord Jesus!” while others recited the Lord’s Prayer. The video, titled, “A Message Signed with BLOOD to the Nation of the Cross,” is indisputably and intensely religious. The entire production is full of references to the Quran and the Hadiths of Muhammad.                

In an article concerning the video production, theologian and scholar Dr. Mark Durie wrote: “The whole event was meticulously choreographed and rehearsed. The video’s obvious purpose is to humiliate and terrorize Christians, whom it derisively calls, ‘The Nation of the Cross.’” Still, Obama could not even bring himself to identify the victims as Christians, referring to them only as “citizens.”

Contrast this evasive response to the quick way he reacted a few days earlier when, during a neighborhood dispute over parking spaces, three Muslims were gunned down. Immediately, President Obama blamed their deaths on religious discrimination, saying: “No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship.” Had President Obama known then that the killer was an activist atheist and a far left “progressive” Obama fan, he probably wouldn’t have said anything.

In the case of the parking lot dispute in which the victims were Muslims, FBI agents were immediately ordered in by President Obama to investigate possible civil rights crimes. Yet, when Maj.Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 fellow soldiers plus one unborn baby at Fort Hood in 2009 while shouting, “Allah Akbar,” President Obama saw the “crime” as “workplace violence.” Within hours, he asked the nation to be “constrained” and not blame Islam or Muslims for the death toll.

The White House will not even refer to the Islamic State by name and uses the initials ISIL in all official statements. To say the name that the organization calls itself is even taboo at the White House because the word “Islamic” is a part of that name.

The logic for this refusal was made clear by Obama Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson in a Fox News Sunday program on Feb. 22.

Johnson said, “To refer to ISIL as occupying any part of the Islamic theology is playing on a battlefield that they would like us to be on. I think that to call them some form of Islam gives the group more dignity than it deserves frankly.” Identifying Islamic terrorists as Islamic gives them “dignity” is the liberal logic.

But the Obama administration has no problem using the term “Christian” to identify terrorists, even if they are not Christian. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on MSNBC must then have given “dignity” to Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Army when she called it a “Christian militant group.” In reality, Kony’s group is a strange mixture of religions, including animism. His recognition of Jesus is just about as authentic as is the Islamic version of Jesus. Even so, Kony’s army is at most responsible for one act of terror for every 10,000 acts of terror by Islamic groups in the world today; this is not to say that he should not be brought to justice quickly.

During his interview on Fox News, Secretary Johnson did let slip the real reason why the Obama administration does not use the word “Islamic” when describing terror, and where the term “violent extremism” came from. Muslim leaders in the United States don’t want the Obama administration to refer to Islamic terror as Islamic terror. Johnson said, “The thing I hear from leaders in the Muslim community in this country is, ‘ISIL is attempting to hijack my religion.’” This non-diplomatic translation of the remark would be, “The Muslim Brotherhood affiliate CAIR does not want the term Islamic used in a way detrimental.”

Because of ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Obama administration is trying to fight the shadow of fundamentalist Islam, which is terror, without identifying what casts that shadow of terror on the world today. A people, a nation that refuses to identify its enemy cannot defeat that enemy. It is not possible to defeat a shadow; the figure that casts the shadow must be defeated. Until there is an administration in Washington, D.C., that is willing to identify and fight the enemy of Western civilization, there can be no lasting success.

Watch: This Mob Thought They Found An Easy Victim To Attack… Boy Were They DEAD Wrong

An Irish man on vacation in Turkey is seen on video fighting off several shopkeepers.

Mohammed Fadel Dobbous, an Irish man of Kuwati descent, went to a shop near his hotel in the Aksaray neighborhood of Istanbul to purchase a bottle of water. After opening the refrigerator door so hard that several bottles fell to the ground, he was attacked by the shopkeeper with a stick, reported Today’s Zaman, an English language outlet that covers news in Turkey.  

As the fight moved outside, several shopkeepers joined their neighbor. A crowd later joined the shopkeepers. The assailants used several objects to bring the Irishman down, including clubs, sticks and stools.  

But their efforts were futile, as Dobbous fought off all of his attackers, leaving at least one unable to walk. The Hurriyet Daily News, another Turkish publication, noted Dobbous was at one time a professional boxer. Dobbous earned considerable praise on social media:

New Kurdish Victory Over ISIS In Iraq, But Islamic State Advances In Syria

Kurdish fighters once again proved they are the only ones able to defeat Islamic State.

On Wednesday, Kurdish Peshmerga units in northern Iraq started a new offensive in the area south of the oil city of Kirkuk, Reuters reported. The Peshmerga units have managed to liberate ten villages in the area so far.

Reuters published video footage of the fighting and reported that the Kurdish offensive was supported by coalition airstrikes on Islamic State positions.

It is the first offensive against ISIS by the Peshmerga forces in months. During the summer, fighting in the area was limited to defensive moves and sporadic clashes between the two sides.

Two thousand Peshmerga fighters have taken part in the offensive that has left scores of ISIS terrorists dead and wounded 45 others. The Kurds have no plans to push Islamic State further southwards; their main objective is to safeguard the Kurdish autonomous area in Iraq.

The offensive began on 5 AM Wednesday morning after coalition airplanes bombed ISIS positions in the Kirkuk area and has been completed today, Kurdish media reported. The capture of the villages has taken away the ISIS threat against Kirkuk, Peshmerga commanders said.

The Kurdish News Agency Rudaw published a video that showed there is a huge difference in the treatment of captured POW’s between the Kurds and the Islamist militias in Syria and Iraq. An ISIS terrorist who was seriously wounded in the fighting can be seen kissing the hand of a Peshmerga officer who gives water to the injured man and assures him he will receive medical treatment in a hospital.

The new Kurdish victory over Islamic State was the only good news about the ongoing battle against the Jihadist organization today.

Elsewhere in Iraq, Islamic State killed two top Iraqi commanders and three Iraqi soldiers in a suicide attack near Ramadi, the major Iraqi city ISIS captured in May.

“Killed in the blast were Major General Abdulrahman Mehdi Abu Raghef, who was the deputy commander of the army’s Anbar Operation Command, and Brigadier Safeen Abdulmajeed, commander of the army’s 10th division,” NBC News reported. The suicide bomber drove a truck loaded with explosives into a group of Iraqi military personnel, killing five and wounding 10 others.

In Syria, Islamic State succeeded in conquering five villages in an area in the vicinity of the Turkish border. The ISIS advances took place in the area where Turkey and the United States plan to establish an Islamic State free buffer zone, where Turkey plans to relocate Syrian refugees.

Islamic State units also encircled the city of Marea, 20 kilometers from the Turkish border, and have stepped up their offensive against the Al-Nusra dominated Jaish al-Islam Islamist coalition in the northern Aleppo province. ISIS again used chemical weapons during the attack on Marea. “International medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Tuesday it had treated a Syrian family from Marea who suffered symptoms of exposure to chemical agents,” Reuters reported.

The ISIS moves seem to be a reaction to the Turkish/American announcement about an imminent “comprehensive” air campaign to drive Islamic State out of the area adjacent to the Turkish border.

The joint Turkish-American offensive against Islamic State in northern Syria is expected to begin soon. A spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry told foreign reporters today: “We expect joint operations, flights to start soon.”  He added that other countries are also interested in joining operations, but did not elaborate.

The joint airstrikes from the Turkish air base Incirlik will no doubt increase pressure on Islamic State in northern Syria; but experts say that in the absence of trained and well-equipped ground forces, no miracles can be expected.

“The key ingredient to degrading Daesh (ISIS) is establishing a large, well-trained, well-armed, resilient and preferably cohesive fighting force. This still appears to be a pipe-dream,” one of them told Bloomberg.
