Iraq the Staging Area for the Islamic Caliphate, Thanks to Obama and John McCain
“Caliphate (from the Arabic: خلافة khilāfa, meaning “succession”) is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political leader known as a caliph – i.e. “successor” – to Muhammad. The succession of Muslim empires that have existed in the Muslim world are usually described as “caliphates”. Conceptually, a caliphate represents a sovereign polity (state) of the entire Muslim faithful (the Ummah, i.e. a sovereign nation state) ruled by a single caliph under the Constitution of Medina and Islamic law (sharia).”
Recently a couple of articles have been written, one by fellow PolitiChick Lainie Sloane about the possible creation of the Islamic Caliphate and one I wrote about the situation in Iraq and how with so much going on there, major developments have been going on elsewhere that no one has been watching. Muslims always form alliances when it will strengthen their end game– to bring the Middle East under the Caliphate and attempting to unite the world under the banner of Islam.
The Islamic Caliphate has been a dream of Islamic leaders since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, and the terrorists who were armed and trained by Obama and who have been using the war in Syria have now found the way. With all of the manipulations throughout the Middle East and North Africa, they have Obama, his administrations and characters like Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Lindsey Graham to thank.
I reported last year how John McCain and Lindsey Graham went to Syria to meet with the so-called freedom fighters that are fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad. McCain used our Special Forces as bodyguards as he met with the terrorists he and Obama were arming. It seems now that ISIS has been circulating the photos of McCain hanging out with the terrorists as part of a jihadist propaganda campaign for themselves.
It was also reported last year about weapons being sent by the Europeans through NATO. Obama at the time refused to talk specifics about the arms that the US was planning on sending, but one of the weapons on the table of discussion were RPGs (Rocket Propelled Grenades) and they were reportedly going to be delivered through Turkey.
While there is so much going on behind the scenes it would seem that ongoing scandals such as the IRS targeting Conservative groups wouldn’t possibly have a connection with the crisis going on in Iraq by ISIS and other Islamic insurgent groups.
It seems however, that Lois Lerner, the IRS Agent in the middle of the scandal had given tax exempt status to Muslim Brotherhood front groups back under the Bush Administration. The Hamzah Islamic Center was given tax exempt status in 2005, with, Renee Raily Norton who was the same contact for Obama’s brother Malik for his 501(c)(3) organization, the Barack Obama Foundation in 2011- one which earned him an indictment in Egypt for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Both were signed off by Lois Lerner.
The Hamzah Islamic Center is based in Georgia, and has been helping take in Syrian refugees at a Mosque in Turkey. At the: 08 mark, a translation into English, “The project is going well and we thank you so much… We have collected much for the men, especially for the revolutionary (fighting) young men”, would indicate that some of those refugees are Syrian jihadists. There is another video mentioning activists in the Syrian Revolution, which according to Walid Shoebat shows Turkey which is home to ISIS training camps. This was reported by Shoebat back in March of this year when Turkey’s plan to invade Syria was uncovered in a leaked secret recording which ended up on You Tube.
News came out from a couple of weeks ago from the Mirror in the UK about British jihadists joining ISIS- by disguising themselves as tourists in Turkey, and slipping into Syria and Iraq as trained ISIS fighters. Somalian Americans from Minnesota are also going to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS.
It was reported that ISIS was also trained in Jordan back in 2012 by US Forces and now ISIS has taken a crossing at a Jordanian border. ISIS already publicly called for the execution of Jordan’s King Abdullah, calling him an infidel and apostate.
Debkafile reported that on June 23rd , the Jordanian air force hit four ISIS armored personnel carriers as they drove into Jordan through the Turaibil border crossing which ISIS had seized Saturday June 21st. Jordan called up military reserves Sunday, after finding out Amman, Jordan’s capital was the next target for ISIS.
ISIS deployed two forces into Jordan; one from Syria, for which they also captured Al Walid, in the north; and one from Turaibil, aiming for the eastern Jordanian towns of Zarqa, Irbid and Amman.
Also according to Debkafile, on June 22nd, the Islamists posted a new site called “ISIS in Saudi Arabia” on the internet. Debkafile sources reported that King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met and on June 21st in Cairo, to discuss the Iraq crisis and the Islamist extremists threats to their countries.
The Saudi king wanted El-Sisi to promise Saudi and Gulf emirates that he’d send Egyptian military commando units in return for financial aid they gave to Egypt in the event of an al Qaida invasion. It’s strange that also present during that conversation was Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who was reported months ago to have been relieved as Director of General Intelligence and senior strategist of the Saudi campaigns in Syria and Iraq.
Early this month it was reported that Qatar and other gulf states are strengthening ties with Iran. Saudi Arabia came out with a list back in march of terrorist organizations. According to the Counter Jihad Report, the list was part of a royal decree made back in February, which ordered a commission to prepare a list of movements that qualify as terrorist groups, and also criminalizing anyone belonging or sympathizing with them.
The commission named organizations such as al Qaida, al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, al Qaida in Yemen, al Qaida in Iraq, Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), Hezbollah within the Kingdom, the Muslim Brotherhood organization and the Houthi group. However, the commission may have made the list hard to interpret and subject to many variations intentionally for flexibility for Saudi authorities regarding some of the organizations which the kingdom has strong ties with including the Army of Islam, and Jabhat al-Nusra.
According to the Counter Jihad Report,
The Islamic Front was not mentioned on the list, which may suggest that it was excluded from the terrorism label and that Riyadh will continue to fund the front’s components, especially the Army of Islam, led by Zahran Alloush… That indicates that the Saudi decision left room for many organizations and movements that are not mentioned on the list by name, whereby it is up to the discretion of Saudi political leadership to classify some groups as terrorist at the proper time and in the way that serves Saudi interests.
It was reported on June 24th that Qatar (yes, the same Qatar which Obama sent 5 Terrorists from Gitmo) has sent 1800 Muslims to fight with ISIS. The Right Scoop posted an article which reported on Qatari intelligence that shows how earlier this year Qatar trained and equipped around 1800 Muslims from Morocco to fight with ISIS. The signature of the Acting Qatari Embassy in Libya, Nayef Abdullah Al Emadi is on the document, which says, that “the volunteers completed military and combat training with heavy weapons, especially in the camps Zintan, Benghazi, Zawiya and Misrata in Libya” and suggests sending the trained fighters in three groups through the Libyan ports to Turkey to enter northern Iraq through Kurdistan.
Noting that the forces would be ready, he added, “We call on the need to accelerate in coordination with the Turkish side to receive the fighters in the appropriate port, and let us know the appropriate dates to send those groups.”
So how did so much of this come about with the help of Obama? While I have personally spent more than a 4 years gathering research and writing about the situations in the Middle East, the spread of Islam and the Obama and Clinton connections which I wrote a three piece series about, in the last of that series I wrote about the Saudi Connection among others. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates (UAE) have small but powerful Sunni Wahibism sects which are the breeding grounds for many of the Sunni led terrorist groups, and with these three Gulf States, plenty of oil money to fund all of them. These countries have Wahabist schools, which through the Saudis also have a strong influence in US schools. The article also mentions the Islamic ties in US Government in our Military and even in our churches. Back in January I wrote about the worsening conditions in Iraq, and mentioned a quote by one Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who had announced at the end of Ramadan in July of 2012, of a renewed jihad to recapture areas lost in Iraq during the years of conflict with American forces. He also warned Americans, “The war has only just started.”
Al-Baghdadi was captured by American forces in Iraq during the Iraq war when U.S. toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime. He was held for four years then let go by the US in 2009. Al-Baghdadi was reported to have said, “See you guys in New York” when he was freed. He is the leader of ISIS. ISIS is now the best funded and equipped jihadist terrorist organization on the planet, one which even Al Qaida has cut ties with; which brings us back to the Saudi, Qatari and UAE connection. These three states are the most wealthy in the Gulf, with the Saudi’s and UAE’s GDP both over a trillion dollars annually. All three share the US’s view on Syrian President Assad, and are all US ‘allies’ in the Arab world. All three have been enemies of the Shia state of Iran, yet now all are aligning themselves with Iran. All three have sheltered jihadist members.
It was reported by the NY Times that ISIS has some control of Syrian oil and was selling it back to the Assad regime. They have also battled for large fields in Northern Iraq. The money ISIS is making and that which has been funded by so called allies, is making ISIS recruiting an attractive deal to jihadists and other Muslim militants from all over the world.
One last interesting story which came from article by the Clarion Project’s Ryan Mauro and appeared in Prophecy Watch’s news on June 23rd. It seems that a Christian delegation recently visited Iran, led by Mega Church Pastor Joel C. Hunter, one of Obama’s spiritual advisors. The Iranian regime hopes that better relations with the US will silence Christian’s criticism of the State and Islam. When asked about the oppression of Christians, Hunter replied, “We didn’t go over there to confront people on certain issues.” So in other words, these Christians did not discuss the fact that Pastor Saeed Abedini, who is an American citizen, was brutally beaten again a month ago, when he was in a hospital and moved back to the notoriously brutal Evin Prison.
According to the article,
“The Iranian regime’s new strategy is to project its power through careful calculation. It has learned from Ahmadinejad’s counter-productive abrasiveness. The “moderate” reputation of President Rouhani will advance Iran’s nuclear weapons program over the long-term, enticing Western businesses to invest in Iran along the way. This will stabilize the regime and spark strategic shifts in its favor.”
Rouhani and others in the regime know that starting a new relationship with the U.S. will have to begin with the church, and what better for Obama to help than sending liberal social gospel pastors who are sympathizers with Islamic causes and anti-Zionist.
More from the article, “Another attendee was Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church in Texas, who held an Islamist-filled “Global Faith Forum” last year and spoke at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference.” ISNA is a group with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
So Obama sends a delegate of liberal Christians at a time when even the United Nations said that Christian persecution in Iran is at unprecedented levels under Rouhani.
Remember, Iran is willing to help the U.S. fight against ISIS in Iraq, and Obama needs concessions on Iran’s nuclear program. Iran has been working towards the Caliphate and the return of the 12th Imam Mahdi. Obama has ties to Iran through sympathizers in his inner circle, and Iranian born Valerie Jarrett has gone on at least two trips to Iran on secret delegations. While Obama sides with Sunni Muslims like the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran is also now working with their rivals to overthrow the current Egyptian President.
Either way, the Middle East and Iraq is in a mess; and either way they will eventually fall to Sharia and be absorbed into the Caliphate.
