ISIS sets up English-speaking brigade to target Western countries

The Islamic State has created an English language group of fighters, whose aim is to bring the terrorist organization’s fight to the West. The first step is to send foreign fighters back home after they have completed their training.

The brigade, which is known as the ‘Anwar al-Awlaki Battalion,’ is made up solely of English speaking jihadists. The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) now want to use this group of Islamists to plan and carryout terrorist attacks in English speaking countries. The anti-Islamic State group, Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, made the claims, reported by the International Business Times.

    Do hope Calgary’s favourite ‘moderate’ imam is up to this.

    Does this mean they have an excess of fighters? Or do they think some of them might better suited to terror attacks at home?

    Straight off the plane and into a long prison sentence would be ideal.

    Will Canada stop admitting British citizens without a visa? The delay in getting a visa allows more time for scrutiny.

    Right after the Charlie Hebdo attacks I was saying that battalion sized operations in the west were a possibility…
    Why not? They have sympathetic neighbourhoods that they can hide in, stockpile weapons and ammo in, and fortify. From there they can raid any target they want and then retreat to their safe haven. If they attack with a large enough force we would need the army to root them out. It would take at least a week (in Canada) to deploy a battalion to do that. If this happened in Toronto or Montreal a Battalion could disappear in no time in a Warsaw Ghetto type of battle.
    The jihadis are all nuts, they don’t care if they die. By the time the battle was over more people could be dead than on 9/11 and more damage could be done to the city.

    So who will be letting them back in and why?

    • cmh

      the canadian charter of rights and freedoms that is dispensed by the supreme court of canada will be letting them back in to canada, and the reason why is that it’s against the isis members human rights to be refused entry.
