ISIS chief to USA: “Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day”

AbuBakralBaghdadi“The sons of Islam have prepared for such a day”? Surely, if there was ever a time when our sterling moderate Muslim leaders — Faisal Abdul Rauf, Ibrahim Hooper, Nihad Awad, Reza Aslan, Ahmed Rehab, Salam al-Marayati and all the rest of them — to straighten out the many among their coreligionists who misunderstand their peaceful, tolerant religion, it is now. Surely they must be on their way to Mosul now, where they can get a meeting with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has a doctorate in Islamic studies from Baghdad University — and explain to him how he is getting Islam all wrong, wrong, wrong.

“ISIS Leader to USA: ‘Soon We Will be in Direct Confrontation,’” by Terence P. Jeffrey, CNSNews.com, June 13, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):


(CNSNews.com) – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), issued a rare audio message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his group’s intention to march on Baghdad and move into “direct confrontation” with the United States.

“Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,” Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

When the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing on February 5 on al Qaida’s resurgence in Iraq, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iran and Iraq Brett McGurk presented written testimony explaining the agenda of ISIS (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL), and discussed Baghdadi’s audio message to Americans.

ISIL, McGurk said, focuses on “an aim to carve out an Islamic caliphate stretching from Baghdad to Lebanon.”

“ISIL has also made its intentions clear: move from a new base of operations in Fallujah to Baghdad–a distance of under 30 miles,” McGurk said in his written testimony. “Its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had this to say in a rare audio statement issued on January 21: ‘As for ISIS in Iraq: Be in the frontlines against the Shia, and march toward Baghdad and the South, keep the Shia busy in their own areas. Know that the entire Sunni population and the brothers in Syria are watching you.’”

McGurk then noted that Baghdadi went on to conclude his audio statement by issuing a direct threat to the United States. Specifically, Baghdadi said: “Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day. So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

“We take such threats seriously and through cooperation with this committee and the Congress, we intend to help the Iraqis in their efforts to defeat ISIL over long term,” McGurk told the committee in his spoken testimony.

The day before McGurk appeared in the Foreign Affairs Committee, CIA Director John Brennan testified at the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s annual hearing on “Worldwide Threats.” Discussing Jabhat al Nusra, which is the al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, and ISIL, Brennan warned that al Qaeda may develop the capability to “use Syria as a launching pad” for attacks on the West, and that al Qaeda already had training camps both in Syria and Iraq where it was developing capabilities that could threaten the West.

“There are three groups of people [operating in Eastern Syria] that are a concern, from an extremist standpoint; Ahrar Asham, Jabhat al-Nusra, which is the Al Qaida element within Syria, and the Islamic state of Iraq and Levant,” said Brennan. “It’s those latter two I think are most dedicated to a terrorist agenda.

“We are concerned about the use of Syrian territory by the Al Qaida organization to recruit individuals and develop the capability to be able not just to carry out attacks inside of Syria, but also to use Syria as a launching pad,” he said.

“So it’s those elements–Al Qaida and ISIL–that I’m concerned about, and especially the ability of these groups to attract individuals from other countries, both from the West, as well as throughout the Middle East and South Asia, and with some experienced operatives there who have had experience in carrying out a global Jihad,” Brennan continued.

“There are camps inside of both Iraq and Syria that are used by Al Qaida to develop capabilities that are applicable, both in the theater, as well as beyond,” the CIA director testified.

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers asked Brennan: “Do you believe that that ungoverned space presents a real threat to the United States of America, via al Qaida operations, or the West?

“I do,” said Brennan.

On Feb. 2, al Qaeda had issued a statement on inline disassociating itself from ISIL, which had tried to take over al Nusra Front, which al Qaeda had designated as its official affiliate in Syria. In his Feb. 5 testimony, McGurk discussed this break between al Qaeda and ISIL.

“ISIL and al Nusra were both kind of came out of Al Qaida in Iraq,” said McGurk. “ISIL, basically, is al Qaida in Iraq. It’s leader was the al Qaida and Iraq leader since 2010. Nusra was a bit of an offshoot and is focused more on Syria. As you said, there’s now this message, which seems from [al Qaida leader] Zawahiri, saying that ISIL is no longer affiliated with Al Qaida central.”

GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Sadly, I agree.

The irony of this all is wherever islam takes hold, when the animals sieze power, the leftists suffer most.

Kevin....I'm not a disciple of Dr. Michael Savage.   But many times I agree with him.

He has an interesting take on the level of sinister that we're dealing with here.....

These so-called youths/children are uneducated, poor....just like the marauders across Africa that slaughter women and children with impunity.

Many could indeed be from Islamic nations....who's to know?   Nobody is allowed to photograph them.

Why?   Because we'd see they aren't Central American at all.  They are Iranian and come from many other American hating countries.

Why are they being held at military bases?   Are some of them being trained as 'volunteers'?

What if they overran the arms supplies and simply took to the streets?

This smells real bad.

  • Your what hurts??
These guys are not stupid and they do watch satellite television news.  They know what a p u s s y Obama is and that the last thing they need to worry about is any interference from the Americans.

Obama's on the 8th tee somewhere in Palm Springs taking care of the matter.
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.

That's what he wants you to think.  I think he's playing cards with Reggie Love at a secret place. 0052
