    In the Islamic State 'Caliphate,' Daily Life is Laden With Fear and Brutality

    http://www.ndtv.com/world-news/in-t...nd-brutality-1226051?pfrom=home-lateststories

    The white vans come out at dinnertime, bringing hot meals to unmarried Islamic State fighters in the city of Hit in western Iraq.

    A team of foreign women, who moved from Europe and throughout the Arab world to join the Islamic State, work in communal kitchens to cook the fighters' dinners, which are delivered to homes confiscated from people who fled or were killed, the city's former mayor said.

    The Islamic State has drawn tens of thousands of people from around the world by promising paradise in the Muslim homeland it has established on conquered territory in Syria and Iraq.

    But in reality, the militants have created a brutal, two-tiered society, where daily life is starkly different for the occupiers and the occupied, according to interviews with more than three dozen people who are now living in, or have recently fled, the Islamic State.

    Foreign fighters and their families are provided free housing, medical care, religious education and even a sort of militant meals-on-wheels service, according to those interviewed. The militants are paid salaries raised largely from taxes and fees levied on the millions of people they control in an arc of land as big as the United Kingdom.

    Those whose cities and towns are held by the Islamic State said they face not only the casual savagery of militants who behead their enemies and make sex slaves out of some minority women but also severe shortages of the basics of daily life.

    Many residents have electricity for only an hour or two a day, and some homes go days without running water. Jobs are scarce, so many people can't afford food prices that have tripled or more. Medical care is poor, most schools are closed, and bans on most travel outside the Islamic State are enforced at gunpoint.

    Over the past two years, the militants have produced a torrent of startlingly sophisticated online propaganda that has helped persuade at least 20,000 foreign fighters, many with families, to come from as far away as Australia. The campaign, largely distributed on YouTube and social media, depicts a place filled with Ferris wheels and cotton candy, where local families cheerfully mingle with heavily armed foreigners.

    But local people interviewed said their daily lives are filled with fear and deprivation in the Islamic State "caliphate," governed by the militants' extreme version of Islamic sharia law.

    "We went back to the Stone Age," said Mohammad Ahmed, 43, a former Arab League worker from Deir al-Zour, a town near Raqqa, the militants' self-proclaimed capital in northern Syria.

    "We used to have a beautiful house with marble and ceramic floors," said Ahmed, who fled his home in June and now lives alongside 20,000 other Syrians in Jordan's Azraq refugee camp. "All our lives, we had everything we needed. Then, when they came, we were cooking over a fire outside and washing our clothes in a bucket."

    Several of those interviewed said the Islamic State was actually less corrupt and provided more efficient government services, such as road construction and trash collection, than the previous Syrian and Iraqi governments. In Iraq, some said, the Sunni Islamic State militants treated them better than the Shiite-dominated central government in Baghdad. But none of those interviewed said they supported the militants, and all said efficient government did not excuse the group's brutal and fanatical behavior.

    "We hate them," said Hikmat al-Gaoud, 41, the former mayor of Hit, who fled in April and now divides his time between Baghdad and Amman, Jordan.

    The Islamic State came to power in the wake of years of fighting in Syria and Iraq that already had shattered many public institutions. But people interviewed said the Islamic State had made the damage worse, in ways that could be felt for decades to come - reversing gains in public education, ruining the medical infrastructure, establishing a justice system based on terror, and exposing a generation of children to gruesome and psychologically devastating violence.

    For women, living in the Islamic State homeland often means being subjected to a virtual assembly-line system for providing brides to fighters, or sometimes being abducted and forced into unwanted marriages.

    Many who were interviewed gave only their first name or declined to be identified at all, for their own safety and the security of their family members still living under Islamic State control. They were interviewed via Skype or telephone calls from Syria and Iraq, or in person in Iraq, Turkey and Jordan.

    Those who spoke from inside areas controlled by the Islamic State did so at great peril, saying the militants closely monitor Internet access. They agreed to speak so that they could tell their story of life inside the Islamic State caliphate.

    Nearly everyone interviewed said they had witnessed a beheading or another savage punishment. It is virtually impossible to independently verify these accounts, just as it is impossible to verify the claims in much of the propaganda material put out by the Islamic State. The militants almost never allow journalists or other observers inside their territory, and they have posted video of the beheadings of several they have captured.

    The interviews, conducted over several months, were arranged largely at random or through long-established contacts in the region. Although several activists were among those interviewed, The Washington Post did not rely on activist groups to provide interview subjects. At the Azraq camp, Post reporters reviewed records of arrivals and sought out those who recently came from militant-controlled areas. Many of the interviews lasted two hours or longer.

    The militants control small farming communities and large urban areas, including Mosul, an Iraqi city with a population of more than 1 million people. The Islamic State's policies differ somewhat in each area, so there is no single, uniform way of life; but in the interviews, consistent themes emerged about women, health, education, justice and the economy in the Islamic State.

    Women must be fully veiled and can be whipped for leaving the house without a male-relative escort. Many simply stay at home for fear of being picked up on the street and forced to marry a foreign fighter.

    Hospitals are usually reserved for foreign fighters and are staffed by doctors who have come from as far as Britain and Malaysia. Local people are forced to seek care in ill-equipped clinics, which have expired medications and poorly trained staff.

    In some places, the Islamic State has shut down cellphone service and Internet access. Where it still exists, the militants try to control it closely. They have set up Internet cafes that have become centers for propaganda, where recruiters encourage young people around the world to leave their homes and come to the Islamic State. They have persuaded about 200 Americans - some still in their teens - in Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis and other U.S. cities to try to come to Syria. Most were arrested before reaching their destination, according to U.S. law enforcement officials.

    Except for religious schools for the children of foreign fighters, schools are generally closed. Militants have confiscated college diplomas and burned them publicly.

    "Life under Daesh is a nightmare each day," said a female math teacher who lives in Mosul, using an Arabic name for the Islamic State.

    "We have an unknown future," she said, asking that her name not be used. "Maybe Daesh will kill us or maybe we will die in the war, or maybe after. What we are going through right now is a slow death."

    The militants have established checkpoints to prevent people from fleeing. But those interviewed said a growing network of smugglers is helping people flee, and they are entering Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and non-militant-controlled areas of Iraq in increasing numbers. U.N. officials said that 60 percent of refugees who have crossed the Syria-Jordan border recently were escaping areas controlled by the militants.

    The Islamic State's propaganda portrays the militants as liberators; one recent video showed armed fighters delivering sweets to a home for the elderly. But according to those interviewed, the majority of residents view the militants as a merciless occupying force, and they stay away from them as much as possible.

    "Even if we see them in the streets or in the shops, there is no mingling," said an activist who calls himself Abu Ibrahim al-Raqqawi, a native of Raqqa who runs a social media site called Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently.

    People in Raqqa, he said, "feel like strangers in their own city."

    The Islamic State has had some success recruiting local people. Those interviewed said many of their friends and neighbors in Syria and Iraq have chosen to join the Islamic State, becoming fighters, teachers or workers in their government offices.

    Some do so because they believe in the militants' goal of uniting the world under their extreme interpretation of Islamic law.

    But most of the people who work for the Islamic State do so out of economic desperation, according to those interviewed. In places where the cost of food has skyrocketed and where many people are living on little more than bread and rice, some men have concluded that becoming an Islamic State warrior is the only way to provide for their family.

    "There is no work, so you have to join them in order to live," said Yassin al-Jassem, 52, who fled his home near Raqqa in June. "So many local people have joined them. They were pushed into Daesh by hunger."

    Peter Neumann, director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence at King's College in London, said that although foreign fighters have given the Islamic State a boost, "in the long term, they will turn out to be a burden." He said that local tribes rose up against al-Qaida in Iraq in the mid-2000s partly because that group was perceived as a foreign organization. He said people now under Islamic State control could do the same - especially in Iraq.
    But those interviewed who had lived under the Islamic State said it has gone to great lengths to suppress any potential uprisings, killing anyone suspected of disloyalty.

    Faten Humayda, 70, a grandmother who fled her town near Raqqa in May and now lives in the Azraq camp, said the violence increases local anger at the militants, but it also creates suspicion among local people. It is harder for any kind of resistance movement to form when people think their friends and neighbors might be informants for the militants.

    "They have turned us against each other," she said.

    Ahmed, who fled his town near Raqqa in June, said some of the Arab fighters would try to mix with the local population, but the Europeans and other non-Arabs never did. He said that although the Islamic State militants claimed they were there to create a better life for Muslims, they seemed mainly focused on battles with other rebel groups and government forces.

    "They were always very aggressive, and they seemed angry," he said. "They are there to fight, not to govern."

    Interviewed in his baking-hot metal hut in the Azraq camp, Jassem recalled that while he was living under Islamic State control, his 2-year-old grandson developed a brain tumor. Doctors wanted $800 to remove it.

    Jassem, a farm hand, hadn't worked since Islamic State militants took over his home town. He was desperate, so in late May he went to the militants to beg for his grandson's life, and they offered him a choice.

    "They said to me, 'If you give us your son to fight with us, we will pay for your grandson's treatment,'" he said.

    The idea of one of his sons becoming an Islamic State fighter turned his stomach, and the thought of losing his grandson broke his heart. So Jassem took his family and escaped in the back of a smuggler's truck. He said his son is now asking Jordanian authorities for medical help for the little boy.

    "I am never going back to Syria," Jassem said, looking out from his 12-by-18-foot hut at the bleak expanse of empty Jordan desert. "It's not my Syria anymore."

    Horrific! ISIS militants gun down 200 captive Syrian children

    Damascus: Yet another horrific video, showing mass executions by dreaded terror outfit Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has come to the fore.

    The video, allegedly uploaded by an anti-ISIS activist based in Yemen, shows around 200 children were gunned down by the jihadists of the terror group.

    The footage is believed to be filmed in August 2014 near the Tabqa airbase in Syria.

    The video further shows the militants asking the prisoners of war to lie down facing the ground and then indiscriminately firing at them.

    More than 250,000 people have been killed since the conflict began in March 2011.

    The United Nations is estimating that 13.5 million people in Syria are now in need of humanitarian assistance and some form of protection, including more than six million children.

    Islamic State: Syrian army breaks IS siege of key Aleppo air base, reports say

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-11-11/syrian-army-breaks-is-siege-of-key-aleppo-air-base/6931240

    Syrian troops have broken a nearly two-year siege by Islamic State (IS) insurgents at a military air base in northern Aleppo province, freeing hundreds of soldiers inside the facility, state media has reported.

    A military source close to the government said the army was working to secure the Kweires air base, where soldiers have been under attack since 2013.

    State television broadcast live footage from the airbase of an emotional, fatigue-clad reporter announcing the breakthrough.

    "We, the heroes of Kweires, are now celebrating with our brothers this victory," one of the freed soldiers told state TV, speaking by phone.

    "We dedicate this victory to President Bashar al-Assad and we promise him we will continue fighting until all of Syria is liberated. We will not kneel to Daesh," he said, using an Arabic name for the Islamic State group.

    Britain-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that an advance party of troops had reached the airbase and "broken the siege".

    It is the first major victory for Syria's army since Russia launched an air campaign in support of Mr Assad on September 30.

    Dozens of soldiers were shown on television arriving at the airbase, elated and beaming, and it aired calls from the families of the freed soldiers.

    "We talked to him three hours ago, and he is in high spirits," the mother of Lieutenant Iyad Salameh said.

    Syrian information minister Omran al-Zoubi praised the "strength and steadfastness" of the soldiers, and sounded a defiant tone against "terrorists", the term which Syria's government uses to describe all rebels fighting against it.

    The breaking of the Kweires siege stood in stark contrast to Islamic State's capture of Tabqa airbase in Raqqa province in the north of the country last year, when militants killed scores of soldiers.

    The families of soldiers under siege in Kweires had staged protests urging the government to do more to take it back.

    Syrian troops have been supported by Iranian forces and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters in a push to regain territory, largely in the north, lost to insurgents during almost five years of conflict.

    Rebels have frustrated a campaign to reclaim territory elsewhere in the country, where Russian jets have flown more than 1,600 sorties in little over a month.

    ISIS in Sinai threatens to attack Israel

    http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/ISIS-in-Sinai-threatens-to-attack-Israel-432684

    Islamic State released a new video Tuesday threatening to attack Israel, but did not reveal when the attack would take place.

    “The video is focused on the war against the Egyptian military.

    The threat to Israel comes at the end, where it says that they will reach the Jews,” Rafael Green, director of the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.

    Expressing the terrorist group’s intention to attack Israel at an unspecified time, the speaker quoted the well-known hadith: “Judgment Day will not come until you fight the Jews and kill them. The Jews will hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and trees will call, ‘O Muslim, o servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him – except for the gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews.’”

    The 14-minute video “And Then They Will Be Vanquished,” a response to the Egyptian army’s recently launched Operation Martyr’s Right, should be taken seriously, but needs to be put into proportion, said Green.

    The speaker is a masked gunman who urges Egyptian soldiers to repent or be killed for attacking jihadists in Sinai. He claimed that the army is trying to push out the local population in order to defend Israel.

    The speaker threatens Israel, saying that the jihadists have not forgotten it, in spite of their current focus on the war against the Egyptian government.

    He vows that his group will resume its attacks on Israel “soon.”

    He also vows that Islamic State will lead the Islamic nation, which will “rise up and uproot you [the Jews].”

    “He warns them that the mujahedin will penetrate deep into the territory of the ‘tyrants,’ hinting at planned operations within Egypt itself, rather than in the Sinai Peninsula,” notes the report.

    “Indeed, this apostate army has failed to carry out the mission it was tasked with, and was embarrassed in front of the public and in front of its masters,” he declares.

    These messages were spoken as footage of civilians allegedly killed by the Egyptian army and blown-up tanks and dead Egyptian soldier were shown.

    The speaker vows that his group will raise its flag over the Cairo Tower, a famous Cairo landmark.

    In the summer, Islamic State threatened to turn the Gaza Strip into another of their Middle East fiefdoms, accusing Hamas of being insufficiently stringent about religious enforcement.

    The video statement, issued from an Islamic State stronghold in Syria, was a rare public challenge to Hamas, which has been cracking down on jihadists in Gaza. Islamic State opposes Hamas’s truces with Israel and reconciliation with the US-backed rival Palestinian faction Fatah.

    “We will uproot the state of the Jews. You and Fatah, and all of the secularists are nothing.

    You will be overrun by our creeping multitudes,” said a masked Islamic State member in the message addressed to the “tyrants of Hamas.”

    If a sunni says that he hates ISIS and what IS did with shiyas then most probably he is lying.

    Names of 22,000 ISIS Members Leaked To News Channel: Report

    http://www.ndtv.com/world-news/names-of-22-000-isis-members-leaked-to-news-channel-report-1285614

    London, United Kingdom: Tens of thousands of documents containing the names, addresses, phone numbers and family contacts of terrorists who joined the ISIS group have been given to Sky News, the broadcaster said Wednesday.

    Sky reported that a disillusioned former member had handed over the documents on a memory stick that had been stolen from the head of the group's internal security police.

    The documents are forms that ISIS recruits had to fill out in order to be accepted into the organisation, and contain information on nationals from 51 countries, the broadcaster reported.

    "Sky News has informed the authorities about the haul," the news channel wrote on its website. No comment was immediately available from Britain's interior or foreign ministries.

    Some of the documents reportedly contain the information of previously unknown jihadis located across northern Europe, the United States and Canada, as well as in North Africa and the Middle East, it said.

    Richard Barrett, former global terrorism operations director at MI6, wrote on Twitter that the records would shed an "invaluable light" on who had joined ISIS.

    "This is going to be an invaluable resource for analysts," he added.

    Copies of the documents broadcast by Sky News showed that recruits would have to answer 23 questions including on their blood type, mother's maiden name, "level of sharia understanding" and previous experience.

    Some of the names in the documents are of fighters who have been already identified, such as Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, a former rapper from west London who once posted an image of himself on Twitter holding a severed head.

    Another named is Junaid Hussain, a cyber-operative for IS from the British city of Birmingham who was killed in a drone strike last August, and 21-year-old Reyaad Khan who appeared in a recruitment video and was killed last year.

    The documents were obtained from a man who uses the name Abu Hamed, a former Free Syrian Army member who joined ISIS.

    He stole the memory stick of documents and handed them over in Turkey to a journalist, explaining that he left because Islamic rules had collapsed inside the group.

    Hamed claimed the group had given up on its headquarters in the Syrian city of Raqqa and was moving into the desert.

    I'm sure RAW is already all over it. They must have finished checking the names by now. Also, as the form suggests, it asks you for the "reference" or who guided you to that place. This means, not only the jihadis but also the agents can be caught easily.

    Islamic State's chief India recruiter killed in US drone strike

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...d-in-US-drone-strike/articleshow/51972203.cms?

    NEW DELHI: Mohammad Shafi Armar, the head and principal recruiter of Islamic State (IS) in India, died a few days ago in a US drone strike in Syria, sources said.

    Shafi, also known as Yousuf, had reportedly become an important ally of IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and was helping establish the outfit in India. He is learnt to have recruited at least 30 men for the group. According to 23 IS recruits arrested over the past year and a half by the NIA, Delhi Police and police forces of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh and Kerala, Shafi planned to establish an IS unit in every Indian state.

    According to top government sources, the death of 26-year-old Shafi, a native of Bhatkal in Karnataka, may have left the Indian unit of IS "headless" for now. His elder brother Sultan Armar, who was heading the outfit's India franchise till last year, died in March 2015 in the same manner. TOI confirmed Shafi's death from three top government and intelligence sources. The agencies are ascertaining the exact circumstances under which he was killed.

    Listed on the Interpol website, Shafi had recently formed Junud al Khalifa-e-Hind (Soldiers of the Indian Caliphate) by dismantling the Ansar-ul-Tauhid (AuT). AuT was born out of Indian Mujahideen (IM) after Shafi and Sultan developed differences with Riyaz and Iqbal Bhatkal, the Pakistan-based chiefs of IM, over misuse of funds received for terror activities. AuT had pledged loyalty to IS and Shafi conducted talent-scouting from his Syrian base.

    It is suspected that Shafi was in touch with at least 600-700 Indian youngsters on closed Facebook groups and messaging platforms like Trillion, Surespot, WhatsApp and Skype over the past one year, and may have recruited some men for the outfit. He even arranged funds - through transfers and hawala transactions - for IS recruits here. He sent some Rs 6 lakh to the module of Mudabbir Mushtaq Shaikh, whom Shafi made the 'amir' of IS in India while keeping the larger 'head' designation with himself. Sources said very few IS recruits have managed to travel to Syria as security agencies have been keeping a close watch on their activities in India.

    "We have learnt about his death. We are gathering more details. The final confirmation and details may take time as it is difficult to get information from Syria, where IS has presence, but it's big news," said a top official.

    Officials said Shafi was the common link between several IS suspects caught or questioned by different agencies. Sultan Armar, who headed AuT before his death, allegedly appeared in many videos (now blocked) with his face digitally masked, asking Indian Muslims to join AuT and wage a war in the name of jihad. In one of the videos, he reportedly exhorted, "Rise like Ahmad Shah Abdali and Muhammad ibn-Qasim, like Syed Ahmad the martyr, like the Prophet and his companions, take the Quran in one hand and the sword in the other, and head to the fields of jihad." He also asked IS recruits to "teach Brahmins and worshippers of cows, as well as the whole world of unbelievers, that the Indian Muslim is no coward".

    The Armar brothers' links to the IS first emerged during the interrogation of Yasin Bhatkal, who headed IM and was arrested in 2013.

    In a survey in SA, 92% of the people said that what ISIS does is as per the Islam and quaran. Whenever they kill people or rape women, they says that it is as per Islam. They quotes the example of Mohammad.

    Yes. True that. Many Sunnis in other countries approve as well. Enough a lot of muslims in India too. Proves that when given an opportunity, they won't hesitate to cut their friends and neighbours down.

    Terrorists Arrested 6 Month After French Journalist Infiltrates Their Cell

    PARIS, FRANCE: A French journalist infiltrated a cell of would-be terrorists, filming them with a hidden camera as they plotted an attack in the name of the ISIS group, before they were arrested, he told AFP.

    The journalist, a Muslim using the pseudonym Said Ramzi, carried out the investigation for a documentary entitled "Allah's Soldiers" which gives an insight into the minds of young terrorists, and will be shown in France tonight.

    Ramzi describes himself as a Muslim "of the same generation as the killers" who carried out the November 13 terror attacks which left 130 people dead in Paris.


    "My goal was to understand what was going on inside their heads," he told AFP.

    "One of the main lessons was that I never saw any Islam in this affair. No will to improve the world. Only lost, frustrated, suicidal, easily manipulated youths."

    "They had the misfortune of being born in the era that the Islamic State exists. It is very sad. They are youngsters who are looking for something and that is what they found."

    To make contact with the group, Ramzi said the first steps were easy, following and interacting with those preaching jihad on Facebook.

    Then, he had to meet the person presented as the "emir" of the group of about a dozen youths, some of them born into Muslim families, and the others converts.

    This took place in Chateauroux, a town in the centre-west of France, at an outdoor activities centre that was deserted in winter.

    'Women Waiting In Paradise'

    The "emir" was a young French-Turkish citizen named Oussama, and on their first meeting he tries to convince the journalist he knows as Abu Hamza, that paradise awaits him if he carries out a suicide mission.

    "Towards paradise, that is the path," Oussama says, a chilling smile on his face. "Come, brother, let's go to paradise, our women are waiting for us there, with angels as servants.

    "You will have a palace, a winged horse of gold and rubies."

    During another meeting in front of a mosque in the Paris suburb of Stains, a member of the group points to an airplane approaching the nearby Bourget airport.

    "With a little rocket-launcher, you can easily get one of them... you do something like that in the name of Dawla (ISIS), and France will be traumatised for a century."

    Some of the gang, like Oussama, try and reach the ISIS group in Syria. He was arrested by Turkish police and handed back to France where he spent five months in jail before being released.

    While he had to show his face at the local police station once a day under his release conditions, he stayed in touch with the group via encrypted messaging application Telegram to organise meetings at which plans to launch an attack took form.

    "We must hit a military base," says Oussama. "When they are eating, they are all lined up ... ta-ta-ta-ta-ta," he added, mimicking the sound of automatic gunfire.

    "Or journalists, BFM, iTele, they are at war against Islam," he says of the prominent French television stations.

    "Like they did to Charlie. You must strike them at the heart. Take them by surprise. What do you want them to do? They aren't well protected. The French must die by the thousands."

    In January 2015 two brothers attacked the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people.

    Things accelerate when a certain Abu Suleiman returns from Raqqa, the ISIS group's capital in Syria and tells the journalist to meet him at a train station.

    Once there, it is not Suleiman -- who the journalist never meets -- but a woman in a full-faced niqab veil who shows up and hands Ramzi a letter.

    The message lays out a plan of attack: target a night club, shoot "until death", wait for security forces and set off an explosives vest.

    However the security noose tightens around the group at this point, and several members of the group are arrested.

    One of them who avoided arrest sends a message to the journalist saying: "You're done for man".

    "That is where my infiltration ended," said Ramzi.

    These idiots are not going to learn no matter how many get busted. What happened to their ideology of Peace? The day is going to come when they will have no place to call home once right wing party gets elected.
