Five items on the state of the war: Links 1, May 20, 2019

1. The mugger, the suicide bomber, the geek and the unknown terrorist: Four British jihadis all used the same Samsung phone to take videos and photos of their time fighting for ISIS

Footage and photos from a mobile phone used by four British jihadis as they documented their life in the IS caliphate before their deaths has been handed to British media by Syrian authorities.


The Samsung Galaxy smartphone was passed from one owner to another between 2013 to 2015 as the British Jihadis, from West London and Portsmouth, made their way to Raqqa, Syria, reports The Times.


Home videos filmed by the four men including British Choukri Ellekhlifi, 22, Fatlum Shalaku, 20, and Muhammad Mehdi Hassan, 19, – all now deceased – revealed an extraordinary insight into their lives in the caliphate. […]


With one shouting: ‘Let’s kill some kuffar [Arabic for ‘nonbelievers’]’ […]


He shouts: ‘These bullets will be wedded with your bodies, Americans, British, French … we are here. Allah will give us victory’, reports The Times. 

2. Al Jazeera disowns brutally antisemitic video it aired, then filed a copyright claim against the people who tweeted it out.

3. Trump vows to ‘end’ Iran if it threatens US again

(Such a refreshing change from Obama’s policy of humiliate and degrade your own soldiers and let them come home with bags of Iranian candy after making videos for the regime)

President Trump threatened to destroy Iran in a tweet sent in the wake of reports that a rocket was fired into Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone less than a mile from the US Embassy.


“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!,” Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon.


It’s unclear exactly what prompted Trump’s posting, but news outlets reported explosions in Iraq’s capital and that a rocket launcher was discovered in eastern Baghdad, an area that is home to Iranian-backed Shiite militias.

4. Malwarebytes, starts censoring Jihad Watch

Another product I have recommended in the past which was great back in the day when you could rely on them to remove browser adware and malware. But now, censorers are deciding for you what content on the web is of value and to be trusted. Of course, if they get this wrong, they should not be trusted to do what they are meant to do, and protect your browser, you should uninstall, and let them know, here for Chrome and Firefox how they are failing.

(This is very serious. Apple’s go-to malware software, Malware Bytes, is now giving a warning on Jihad Watch:

While it doesn’t quite say that it contains malware, the actual purpose of the software, it offers an opinion on the quality of the content.

We need a new scale to start scoring some of these events. Lets call it the Soviet scale of ideological, irrelevant insertion, and this is a clean 7.0)

5. More cracks between the left and Islam in the UK:

Direct link:

Thank you Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, GB., and all who sent in a lot of important materials. More to come today, including quite an interesting analysis of who knew what when with the Austrian scandal. Hint: Remember the German comic that did the Erdogan poem? Turns out he is not a ‘good guy’.

  1. 5 – How long before the “Religion of Peace” starts attacking the left for their support of homosexuality? After all the Koran says all homosexuals must be executed.
