BEIRUT (Reuters) – Islamic State called on Muslims to launch a “holy war” against Russians and Americans over what it called their “crusaders’ war” in the Middle East, an audio message distributed by supporters of the ultra hardline group said on Tuesday.
“Islamic youth everywhere, ignite jihad against the Russians and the Americans in their crusaders’ war against Muslims,” the speech by Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani said.
The United States and Russia are carrying separate airstrike campaigns in Syria, which they say are targeting Islamic State.

Turkey has warned the United States and Russia it will not tolerate Kurdish territorial gains by Kurdish militia close to its frontiers in north-western Syria, two senior officials said.
“This is clear cut for us and there is no joking about it,” one official said of the possibility of Syrian Kurdish militia crossing the Euphrates to extend control along Turkish borders from Iraq’s Kurdistan region towards the Mediterranean coast.
Turkey fears advances by Kurdish YPG militia, backed by its PYD political wing, on the Syrian side of its 900 km (560-mile) border will fuel separatist ambitions among Kurds in its own southeastern territories. But Washington has supported YPG fighters as an effective force in combating Islamic State.
An English village has been left ‘overwhelmed’ by asylum seekers, residents complained last night.
Longford in West London is fast becoming a ‘transit camp’ for migrants from Calais – with dozens arriving on coaches every day and being transferred to houses, according to locals.
The migrants are temporarily living in homes bought by hotel owners, after property prices fell over concerns that the village could be demolished for London Heathrow Airport’s third runway.
New evidence uncovered by French authorities investigating the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January has shown communication between killer Amedy Coulibaly and a possible handler in the Islamic State.
Coulibaly received an email communication on 8 January. It arrived just hours after he shot and killed an unarmed police officer in Paris on the same day as the killings at Charlie Hebdo, perpetrated by his close friends Chérif and Saïd Kouachi. The following day, he killed four at a Jewish supermarket, telling the hostages he took that he was a follower of the Islamic State.
“I will cut your throat”
A 26-year-old from Syria frightened the other persons at an asylum shelter. Police who got dispatched to the shelter met a weeping man who, because of his Christian faith, had been threatened for life. “I have fled the war in order to avoid this kind of threats”.

More migrants have sought asylum in Sweden so far this year than in any other in the nation’s history. The new figures were revealed just days after the ruling left-wing coalition fell apart and the Prime Minister confessed Sweden was in political turmoil, making an election likely.
“Higher levels than in 1992, I think. We had a lot of ex Yugoslavians coming then. Now we are at a higher pace even,” said Kent Ekeroth, a Sweden Democrat member of the Riksdag, in an exclusive statement to Breitbart London.
Dozens of Yazidi girls have been driven to suicide by the ISIS fighters who abused them, the people risking their own lives to rescue them have revealed.
MailOnline spoke to Ameena Saeed Hasan, a Yazidi mother-of-one who runs a ‘smuggling operation’ to rescue ISIS’s sex slaves out of her apartment, and businessman Abu Shujaa who has been nicknamed the ‘father of courage’ for helping nearly 400 people escape.
They claim the girls who fail to escape are killing themselves so they do not have to endure a single more day of rape, torture and beatings at the hands of their captors.
‘Many girls lose hope when they are with ISIS and choose suicide if they cannot find a way back,’ Ameena Saeed Hasan, a former Iraqi lawmaker, told MailOnline.
Just for something completely different, have a look at this clip from a wonderful old movie from before the days of political correctness. How awesome is this? When the right thing do to was teaching people to fight their oppressors to be free of slavery.
Thanks Tundra T. for the tip on that. And speaking of islam in pop-culture, I strongly suggest watching episode 1 of season 5 of Homeland. There is a scene in a bunker at a CIA building where an operative who has been directing strikes against the Islamic state is briefing other members of the staff and taking questions from the politicians about what the US is accomplishing over there and in this one scene there is more truth about the situation than I have ever seen on so called factual programs on the matter of islam or the Islamic State. Try and watch it. The whole show is good but its worth it for that one scene.
It reminds me of my suspicions that during the middle ages, the only people who could speak truth to power was the court jester. The only one who could say something that was actually true but critical of official policy or doctrine, was the entertainers. The rest were yes men to the powerful. And Homeland shows that this is how it is again.
