ISIS Praises Trump’s Murder of Soleimani as “divine intervention”…just like the Israelis do, or are they “one in the same?”


RT/Moscow: Islamic State terrorists rejoiced at the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani at the hands of his American ‘allies,’ according to a weekly newspaper affiliated with the group that once controlled much of Syria and Iraq.

flipside, Trump as a gay Pontius Pilate

Soleimani was killed by a US drone strike on January 3, as he was being driven, with others, near Baghdad international airport. In reprisal, Iran launched a limited strike on US bases in Iraq with ballistic missiles on Tuesday, causing no casualties but demonstrating a capability to hit US assets at will.

The weekly Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) newspaper Al-Naba portrayed Soleimani’s death as an act of god in support of its cause, and Muslims in general, according to BBC Monitoring.

Thread: In the editorial of its weekly paper #AlNaba, #ISIS welcomes the death of #Soleimani in a US drone strike, but is careful not to openly credit the US for his demise but portrays it as an act of God to support IS and Muslims more broadly.

An editorial in the jihadi paper was careful not to credit the US or even mention Soleimani by name. It couched the gloating in a historical analogy, referring to “Roman-Persian wars” that enabled early Muslims to overrun both Persia – today’s Iran – and parts of the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as Byzantium.

The paper also reported on the US and its allies suspending operations against IS as an opportunity for the group’s resurgence, according to BBC journalist Mina Al-Lami.

This is the typical position of jihadists in such situations: they gloat and pray that God weakens their enemies’ at the hands of one another, for the benefit of jihadists

While IS has not been entirely destroyed, it has not controlled any territory for months. Soleimani’s Quds Force fighters were among those that turned the tide against the IS ‘caliphate,’ alongside the Syrian Army and the Russian expeditionary force in Syria – while the US-backed Iraqi army and Kurdish militias advanced from northern Syria and Iraq.

  1. Yes, they are the same, even when You look back into the biblical history.
    They Hebrew, which assaulted Palestine came from Arabian Peninsula. The mixing with the story of Abraham, Jacob and Josef from Egypt serves as a cover story.

    Or if there is some real background about the book of Esther, where the Iranian King orders to kill all enemies of the Jews, instead as constructed by Haman the Macedonian who gave the order to kill all Jews before. If it has no real background, it at least serves as a recipe and apology of killings. A fake attack is invented to apologize own preemptive mass killing.

    And when we look into the book of Ezra, who persuades another Persian King to finance the “return” of about 5.000 diaspora Jews to Jerusalem and after realizing that his fake fantasies don’t accord with the reality, he orders all men to divorce from their wives and leave their children, which are not from “real Jewish” women.

    • When we look back in real history, which is today told only as a persecution of “the Jews” by the Roman Empire and the Greco-Roman people, we can easily see that there was no persecution by pre-Christian Rome and there was no general uprising by all Jews, but some very radical sects like the Zealots told their members, that “their God” has not promised them only the small village of Canaan, but all land between the big rivers of Euphrates and Nile and to grab this “God promised land” and to fulfill the order of “their God”, they have to kill their civilian neighbors.

      Accordingly, frrom Cyprus and Kurdistan, over Syria, Palestine, Egypt to Morocco overnight they walked into the houses of their neighbors, killed them and filled the village wells with dead corpses. The region of today’s Libya and Algeria was totally depopulated and the Romans had to invite and persuade new settlers there.

    • And at the beginning of 7th century A.D., during the endless wars between Roman and Iranian Empires, the Iranian King made the mistake to engage a Jewish brigade under the leadership of a Nehemiah and allowed him to take over Jerusalem. Entering the city his men slaughtered 20,000 Christian civilians. This misery and other problems resulted the downfall of the last Iranian dynasty of that time.

      Today’s Wahabism, Salafism and Zionism are the repetitions of the same mindset.

      But this is not special for this region. The hungry and losing populations and powers always form a faith of crime ot apologize all their bad doings. The propagandistic framing of the victims as gruesome enemies is also nothing new.

      The European colonials powers, lead by British Empire and today’s US-based Empire have the same mindset. They all become more ruthless, when they are on the route to downfall. There is not a way of return and all hope which was set into Trump with is “America first!” have disappeared like like blasting soap bubble.
