Daesh/ ISIL calls for Terror attacks on Saudi Arabia

By Juan Cole | —

Daesh, the brutal terrorist group the US calls ISIL or ISIS, is calling for attacks in Saudi Arabia.

A voice recording has surfaced, attributed to Ibrahim al-Samarra’i, the leader of the brutal terrorist group Daesh (which the US calls ISIL or ISIS). Al-Samarra’i was wounded in a US airstrike on a Daesh convoy near Mosul last Friday. This voice recording may not actually be by the Daesh leader (it has not been authenticated).

The voice recording, in any case, depicts al-Samarra’i as boasting that his caliphate is spreading, referring to the pledge of allegiance he received from Ansar Bait al-Maqdis (Helpers of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem) in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, an announcement that came after last Friday’s air strikes.

He called for the launching of attacks in Saudi Arabia and the “ignition of the volcano of holy war in every place.”

He called Saudi Arabia “the head of the snake.”

He also expressed deep hatred for Shiites, calling on his followers to attack Saudi Shiites in that kingdom and also to attack the Houthi Zaidi Shiites who have taken over Yemen’s capital.

He maintained that US airstrikes on Daesh in Iraq and Syria have been ineffectual (not mentioning about how they severely wounded him and all).

Al-Samarra’i said that his caliphate was getting ready to mint money, so as to combat the infidel finance system he said was imposed on Muslims by the West.

  1. Interesting, it seems likely that if ISISILIQ lasts a while, significant parts of the complex would, like Hizbollah and Hamas, and Likud if those creatures survive their current savagery, take on “governance” of a slightly gentler style. Like the Chicago Machine, maybe, with a tolerable level of corruption, police abuse, all that? Deash seems proving to attract some bright people with more than just Gunmen skills, link to ibtimes.com, and pretty good PR. Maybe the rulers of our Empire, that pretends to be coming from the democratic tradition, will shake hands with an eventual generation of Caliphaters and more overtly get down to business.

    Slightly kinder and gentler toward the ordinary people who are properly obeisant property, while the rape of the planet grinds on? We’ll just have to wait and see, right? Since other than observing, commenting, complaining in our little still permissible ways, what can we the little people, who have ceded their autonomy to our autocrats and their people and enablers and Bidness Beneficiaries, do about it?

    Not politically correct, but I can’t say I’m opposed to seeing S.Arabia eat the shit steak it’s been serving the rest of world.

  3. I’m confused. The Saudis have been widely reported to be funding ISIS along with Turkey and other US allies. This makes less sense every day.

    • The Saudis don’t fund ISIS/ Daesh! They have their own proxies in Syria, the Islamic Front, which they split off from the Free Syrian Army.

      • While it is true that the umbrella group of autonomous brigades that operate as the “Islamic Front” receive appreciable funding from Saudi Arabia, there exists credible information that ISIS had at some point in time been the product of a covert intelligence operation of the Saudi government, per an article in the Atlantic magazine.

        There have also been information that a substantial relationship exists between Turkish intelligence and ISIS; there are also reports that Turkish border guards are often bribed to permit passage of individuals wishing to join ISIS.

        Some authorities suggest ISIS receives only as much as 5% of its total funding from external sources, with other income received from black market oil revenues it sells at a discount below OPEC prices as well as looting banking institutions coming under its control in such major population centers as Mosul and shaking down individuals and businesses within its borders.

        • I think “…shaking down individuals and businesses within its borders” is known as “levying taxes.”

  4. In the US when we have elections we get to choose the lesser of two (sometimes the least of three) evils. Now it appears we are about to observe a contest between two groups noted for beheadings and other medieval barbarities..

    • Two (or three parties), one virtually unchanging set of policies. And when Hillary gets in, you’ll be splitting hairs to spot any policy differences at all. It’d save an awful lot of money just to merge the parties, declare fascism and get on with business as usual..

    Why ISIS is a threat to Saudi Arabia: Wahhabism’s deferred promise

    “The two Gulf states have spent billions of dollars on promoting a militant and proselytising interpretation of their faith derived from Abdul Wahhab, an eighteenth century scholar, and based on the Salaf, or the original followers of the Prophet.
    But the rulers of both countries are now more threatened by their creation than Britain or America, argued Gen Shaw. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has vowed to topple the Qatari and Saudi regimes, viewing both as corrupt outposts of decadence and sin.
    So Qatar and Saudi Arabia have every reason to lead an ideological struggle against Isil, said Gen Shaw. On its own, he added, the West’s military offensive against the terrorist movement was likely to prove “futile”.”
