Anonymous Group Goes After ISIS - Hacktivist group Anonymous is planning to launch a series of digital attacks against nations it accuses of funding or arming the radical Islamic terror group ISIS. Sources within Anonymous told me the campaign will be called Operation NO2ISIS and will target three states suspected of offering support to the Islamic State of Syria and al-Sham (ISIS). Government websites will be blasted with DDoS attacks with Anonymous planning to “unleash the entire legion” upon its enemies.

SURUC Turkey (Reuters) - Kurdish militants in Turkey have issued a new call to arms to defend a border town in northern Syria from advancing Islamic State fighters, and the Turkish authorities and United Nations prepared on Sunday for a surge in refugees. About 70,000 Syrian Kurds have fled into Turkey since Friday as Islamic State fighters seized dozens of villages close to the border and advanced on the frontier town of Ayn al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish. A Kurdish commander on the ground said Islamic State had advanced to within 15 km (9 miles) of Kobani, whose strategic location has been blocking the radical Sunni Muslim militants from consolidating their gains across northern Syria. A Kurdish politician from Turkey who visited Kobani on Saturday said locals had told him that Islamic State fighters were beheading people as they went from village to village. "Rather than a war this is a genocide operation ... They are going into the villages and cutting the heads of one or two people and showing t ...

Big shocker. The endless cycle of "the enemy of my enemy of my enemy of my enemy" theology foreign policy, "devil worshipers", death, destruction, and such; fighting for control and to rule over everyone else. 70 years of the US mired in and funding the same with stolen tax dollars.

Iraq Christians flee as Islamic State takes Qaraqosh Up to a quarter of Iraq's Christians are reported to be fleeing after Islamic militants seized the minority's biggest town in the country. The Islamic State (IS) group captured Qaraqosh in Nineveh province overnight after the withdrawal of Kurdish forces. Meanwhile, the UN says some of the 50,000 members of the Yazidi religious minority trapped by IS on Mount Sinjar have been rescued.

Iraq Insurgent Advance Spreads To Northwest The insurgent offensive that has threatened to dismember Iraq spread to the northwest of the country on Sunday, when Sunni militants launched a dawn raid on a town close to the Syrian border, clashing with police and government forces. As the rapid advance south by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) towards Baghdad appeared to slow over the weekend, fierce fighting erupted in the town of Tal Afar 60 km (40 miles) west of Mosul near the Syrian border, security sources and a local official said. ISIL fighters and other Sunni Muslim armed groups have stormed several towns on the road to Baghdad after seizing Mosul nearly a week ago – an offensive which only stalled as it approached the mainly Shi’ite capital. The advance alarmed both Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s Shi’ite supporters in Iran and officials in the United States, which helped bring him to power after its 2003 invasion that toppled Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein. U.S. President Bara ...
America's withdrawal from Iraq has left the nation vulnerable to attacking radical Muslim militants. CryOut! infovia cryoutnow.ccsend.com Iraqi Christians have requested urgent prayer as the situation deteriorates virtually to the point of all-out civil war.

ISIS has full control of the northern cities of Mosul and Tikrit and has this morning seized Saadiyah and Jalawla in the Eastern Province of Diyala. Meanwhile, Kurdish forces, who are seen as a bulwark against the Sunni Muslim insurgents, say they have taken control of Kirkuk. A spokesman for the UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, told Sky News that she is 'extremely concerned' by summary executions, extrajudicial killings and the displacement of more than 500,000 people.

Iraqi army bombards Falluja in preparation for ground assault By Suadad al-Salhy BAGHDAD — The Iraqi army intensified its shelling of Falluja on Sunday in preparation for a ground assault to regain control of the city, which has been under the control of militants for a month. Sunni Muslim anti-government fighters, among them insurgents linked to Al Qaeda, overran Falluja in the western province of Anbar on January 1, against a backdrop of deteriorating security across Iraq. Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, whose Shi'ite-led government many in the Sunni minority accuse of discrimination, had held off an all-out offensive to give local tribesmen a chance to expel the militants themselves. But security officials told Reuters on Saturday that a decision had been made to enter Falluja on Sunday. "Orders have been issued to start shelling the city with artillery and planes to detect the potential abilities of militants inside Falluja and try to find a gap to get into the city," a top security official told Reu ...
Al Qaeda's Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has been steadily tightening its grip in the vast Anbar province in recent months to try to create a Sunni Muslim state straddling the frontier with Syria. But last week's capture of positions in nearby Ramadi and large parts of Fallujah was the first time in years that Sunni insurgents had taken ground in the province's major cities and held their positions for days. Iraqi government forces battling an Al Qaeda offensive near the Syrian border launched an air strike on Ramadi on Sunday, killing 25 Islamist militants, according to local officials. In Fallujah, Isil's task has been made easier by disgruntled tribesmen who have joined its fight against the government.
At least 15 military servicemen were killed in an ambush in western Iraq, including several top-ranking officers, security sources told Al Jazeera. The killings took place on Saturday in the Huran valley of the Sunni Muslim-dominated province of Anbar, when a convoy of the 7th army was hit by the members of the Islamic State of Iraq, the military wing of al-Qaeda, according to sources. The commander of the army division and his aid were among those killed in the attack. Violence has been on the rise in Iraq since a deadly security crackdown on a Sunni protest camp in a northern town in April. Two years after US troops withdrew from Iraq, violence is at its highest level since 2006-7, when strife between Sunnis and Shia Muslims killed tens of thousands of people. At least 352 people have died in attacks across the country so far this month, according to an Associated Press news agency count.
Ahmad Shah Massoud Ahmad Shah Massoud (احمد شاه مسعود; Aḥmad Šāh Masʻūd; September 2, 1953 – September 9, 2001) was an Afghan political and military leader, who was a central figure in the resistance against the Soviet occupation between 1979 and 1989 and in the following years of civil war. He was assassinated on September 9, 2001. Massoud came from an ethnic Tajik, Sunni Muslim background from the Panjshir valley in northern Afghanistan. He studied engineering at Kabul University in the 1970s, where he became involved with Muslim anti-communist movements around Burhanuddin Rabbani. After the Soviet occupation of 1979, his role as an insurgence leader earned him the nickname of "Lion of Panjshir" (شیر پنجشیر). In 1992, he was appointed as the minister of defense through the Peshawar Accord, a peace and power-sharing agreement, in the post-communist Islamic State of Afghanistan—a position he held until 2001. He fought against an alliance of militias led by Gulbuddin Hekmatya ...
