IS: An Imminent Threat Against the Homeland

September 5, 2014
Written by D. L. Gary Pandol

IS or ISIS terrorists of the Islamic State have declared: “We will drown all of you in blood.” This was the message in English in an IS video showing a blood-spattered Stars and Stripes next to the jihadist flag.

As the 13th anniversary of 9.11 approaches, IS repeats its declaration of war against the United States, threatening to target American cities as well as Americans found “in any place.” [Read:]

“. . . our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people,” were the words of the IS executioner as he savagely beheaded another American, 31 year old Steven Joel Sotloff. 

Sotloff, a former freelance journalist, was kidnapped August 4, 2013 near Aleppo, after crossing from Turkey into Syria that fateful day. [See:]

Beheadings, a tenet of Islam, are written about and found on the pages of the Koran. For example: Chapter 47:4 reads, “When you encounter the infidels, strike off their heads . . . .” 

The IS go-to plan of beheading infidels appears to be the new “cool” among its young, Islamist recruits. The media however, mistakenly reports on this barbarity as if it were a new method of execution among Islam’s true-believers. However, the atrocities of Islamic imperialists have been well documented and date all the way back to the 7th century as Muslim armies set–out to conquer the known world.

As Mohammad told his faithful followers: “The sword is the key to heaven and hell,” – a celebrated concept in both the Koran and the Hadiths since Islam’s inception. 

Consider that areas of Europe were once Islamized. Muslim armies occupied parts of Spain for 800 years; Portugal for 600 years; Greece for 500 years; the Balkans; and the list goes on. Churches and synagogues were converted into mosques and people saw no end to the cruelties under Islamic law. Muslim pirates of the Barbary Coast raided England, Denmark, Ireland and Iceland and over time seized on U.S. trading vessels in the 18th and 19th centuries. American seamen were enslaved or murdered for the crime of being a non-Muslim, a kafir or infidel. 

In the last century, Armenians and Greeks were massacred by the Muslim Turks and many were crucified; including women, while the Jews suffered a near holocaust in the Muslim Arab world when nearly one million fled for their lives. Meanwhile, the Muslim slave trade continues into the 21st century.

Today, in other developments, MI6 believes it may have identified the IS terrorist who beheaded James Wright Foley and now Mr. Sotloff. Following Mr. Foley’s beheading, the IS terrorist tweeted a photo of himself holding up a severed head on Twitter. 

The evidence points to Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, a British citizen and former rapper also known as “John the Beatle.” He is the son of a high-profile al Qaeda suspect, Adel Abdul Bary. Bary was extradited from Britain to the United States on terrorism charges in 2012. He is believed to have been a close lieutenant of Osama bin Laden.

While President Obama is ideologically entrenched and politically wedded to the notion that the United States is not, and will not, engage in a war against Islamists – Islamic terrorists remain an imminent threat to the United States. Indeed, IS cell groups have infiltrated the U.S. according to intelligence sources.

Strategic Solutions recommends that Americans contact the President and their member of Congress. Make clear that the Islamic State’s recruits are increasing and can still obtain visas from the U.S. State Department. Remind Washington decision-makers that every last 9.11 hijacker was also issued a visa by the State Department. It is time: Profile Muslims coming into the country and end the visa free-for-all. 

In addition, President Obama must stop playing politics on the issue of illegal immigrants and secure America’s borders. Tunnels have been built by Mexican drug cartels and Islamic terrorists into the U.S. – not unlike the tunnels built by Palestinian HAMAS terrorists into Israel. These tunnels are there to savage civilian populations. 

Meanwhile, intelligence information also indicates that Islamic terrorists have stolen commercial jetliners in Libya. Furthermore, an Algerian news site al-Fadjr reported in August that aircraft from the Tripoli International Airport have been missing. [See:] Note: Jane’s reports that these news releases may or may not be credible – verification is needed. 

However, with over 80,000 strong, IS has recently seized a military airport and the last of the Syrian army bases in the Raqqa province where the new IS capital has been established. 

Strategic Solutions urges the U.S. to fight to destroy IS, an army of Islamic imperialists. 

Tell the President that victory must be the objective. In Iraq, U.S. targeted airstrikes against this Islamic army of 80,000+ strong are too few and limited in nature. But sending U.S. ground forces is also unnecessary. 

The United States already has a willing and able military force on the ground in Iraq: the Peshmerga of Kurdistan. Demand that President Obama supply Kurdish military forces with the heavy weaponry the Kurds have been begging for as well as U.S. air cover.

The Peshmerga, with U.S. support, has the will and determination to do what this President will never do – terminate the IS threat.
