WWIII is on the Horizon – More Counties at War today than in WWII!


Anonymous-Knowledge-is-Free-Expect-Us By @ShaunyNews – I remember a few years back now I mentioned ‘Anonymous’ on my Facebook wall. I am always way ahead of most people I know in terms of alternative news, not that Anon are alternative these days, most people with a set of eyes can see they exist as a hive with no real Queen bee. I am disabled with Fibromyalgia and a sibling of mine said “Have you taken extra medication tonight” then proceeded to laugh at me, their name will remain between me and them, but I often think back to that moment, as the years go past I guess I get a little more peeved at the remark. A person who is blood mocking me in-front of everyone, well I guess the last laugh is on me in more ways than one, this person I love but are as stubborn as a mule.

Anonymous – World War III is on the Horizon
Via World United Anonymous on You Tube

Anyway Anonymous are real, they exist, I know many people who call themselves “Anon” but to define the movement you must first understand how it works. There is no top brass. Anonymous, like a few other movements and people have been saying for a while now WWIII is very close, the pieces of the puzzle are in place and it is close. I have wrote about it a few times now https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=WWIII WWIII won’t be a War of Nuclear bombs I don’t think, it will be economic with the sideshow of American owned and run Al Qaeda and ISIS in there also, Ukraine is a melting pot, thousands are dying weekly all over the World. I ask “How many Countries were involved in WWII” The answer of course is easy, 61 countries. Today in 2015 out of 162 countries, 151 of the world’s nations are currently involved in some form of conflict, meaning only 11 countries have peace as I write this.

So look at it objectively and we see and know in WWII 61 Countries were involved. We look today and 151 Countries are either in/at or in Civil War, I think it is fair to say “World War 3” has begun guys. Many will dismiss and play out their groundhog existence scared to even think of this notion, I am able to read it, accept it but turn the internet off and not worry, there is nothing ANYONE can really do, 11 Countries are at peace today with the rest involved in War in some way


Only 11 countries in the WORLD are not involved in conflict, new study reveals



Participants in World War II

Britain did not fight alone, the war also involved many countries. World War II involved 61 countries with 1.7 billion people (three quarters of the world’s population). Fifty million people lost their lives and hundreds of millions people were injured.



Is it fair to assume WWIII has actually begun? What do you think?

Iran Threatens to Open the Golan Front in Response to Israeli Strike – WW3 Closes in


By @ShaunyNews Viahttp://www.ibtimes.co.in/iran-says-hezbollah-will-give-crushing-response-israels-airstrike-620943

I have been writing about how I feel World War 3 has begun already https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=WWIII I think the pieces are in place in the right places to make it so. Sadly we are too far gone to come back now. Israel just gave Iran an excuse to “Wipe Israel off the Map” as said by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. With this, Russia and Ukraine, USA and China, the threat of what I feel are ‘Black Op Operations’ of ISIS terror will become common place in our streets and World. I have stated I believe the USA own, fund and started Al Qaeda and ISIS. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=usa+muslim Remember these below? November 20th and December 9 2014 articles below, Iran has vowed to act against Israel in a “Swift and decisive way” Read into that as you will, but this isn’t good, I have said many times now ‘America and Israel are becoming more isolated in the World community as days pass’ Is this the straw that broke the camel’s back? It sure could be. video’s and links at the bottom as usual

An Israeli army mobile artillery cannon is stationed near the border with Syria in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on January 20, 2015, two days after an Israeli air strike killed six Hezbollah members in the Syrian-controlled side of the strategic plateau. The strike on Syria killed an Iranian general, Tehran confirmed on January 19, as thousands of supporters of Lebanon’s Hezbollah gathered to bury one of the six fighters killed in the same raid.

“The response will be firm and decisive.” This, in short, was the Iranian reaction to the Israeli attack in the Syrian province of Quneitra, which killed a senior commander in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRG), among others. The Iranian reaction indicates the possibility of opening the Golan front, where work is underway to build the necessary infrastructure. Preparations began after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s announcement that the response to Israeli attacks on Syria would come from the Golan Heights. In a statement, the IRG’s public relations department announced the “martyrdom of Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Allah-Dadi” in the airstrike on Quneitra, saying that “Brigadier General Mohammed Ali Allah-Dadi was martyred within the territories of the Islamic Resistance, and in defense of the holy sites and the oppressed Syrian people.”

“This devout commander was on an advisory mission to support the Syrian government and people against the extremist Salafi groups. He provided crucial advice to stop the crimes and conspiracies resulting from terrorist Zionist sedition in Syria,” the statement added. “The Zionist crime, through the violation of Syrian airspace, showed once again that the terrorist acts of sedition perpetrated by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the takfiri groups are part of the policies and agendas pursued by the authoritarian order and international Zionism, in coordination with the leaders of the White House and the Zionist entity, against the Islamic nation.”

Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, in a meeting with Iraqi Interior Minister Mohammed Salem Ghaban, said that “the latest Zionist attack proves the continued military cooperation between the Zionists and the terrorist takfiri groups, and complements the efforts of the leaders of Tel Aviv, who seek to take advantage of the terrorists to create a buffer zone along the borders of the occupying entity.” For his part, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif condemned the attack. The Iranian Foreign Ministry released a statement extending “condolences to the families of the martyrs and the Hezbollah leadership for this brutal criminal act committed by the occupying entity.” The incident “proved once again that the battle in Syria is part of the confrontation with the Zionist entity, and Hezbollah remains steadfast and firm in the path of jihad and martyrdom against the occupation and foreign interference in the affairs of the peoples of the region.”

In a letter to Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of Iran’s national security and foreign policy parliamentary committee, said that “the response by the Hezbollah mujahideen against the Zionists will be harsh.” “These heinous and odious crimes are being repeatedly committed by the Zionist entity, with blatant disregard to international law and resolutions, to weaken the axis of resistance in the face of terrorism and occupation in the region.”

Islamic Shura Council head Hussein Sheikh al-Islam said that “the resistance will open the Golan front in response to the Zionist aggression, which was a grave miscalculation by this entity.” “Without intelligence assistance from terrorist groups in Syria, the Zionist entity would not have managed to execute this operation,” the aim of which is “to please the extremist groups in the Zionist entity and serve electoral objectives.”

Israeli airstrikes hit near Damascus airport – Syrian state TV

Via RT on YouTube

Israeli airstrikes have hit targets near Damascus International Airport and in the town of Dimas near the Lebanon border, Syrian state TV reports. “The Israeli enemy committed aggression against Syria by targeting two safe areas in Damascus province, in all of Dimas and near the Damascus International Airport,” the report said, adding that there were no casualties.


The airstrikes targeted an arms depot, a source in Syrian army’s Joint Staff told Sputnik news agency on Sunday. “The Israeli Air Force have conducted airstrikes on an arms depot, which caused huge blasts near the [Damascus] International Airport,” the source said in a phone conversation. Residents in the Syrian capital said they heard loud explosions. According toLebanon’s Al-Manar television, the Israeli jets bombed areas near the smaller airport at Dimas. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said that 10 explosions were heard near Dimas, Reuters reported.


The town of Dimas is located northwest of Damascus near the border with Lebanon. A spokesman for Israel Defense Forces told Reuters he would “not relate to the foreign reports.” The Israeli Air Force has carried out several airstrikes in Syria since the beginning of the civil war there. The Israelis targeted what they claimed were sophisticated weapons systems destined for Damascus’ ally, the Hezbollah militant group in Lebanon.

Israeli forces take Syria militants to Israel’s hospitals


By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

So Israel is helping the people trying to overthrow the Syrian Government… This won’t go down well

Israeli forces have taken three wounded militants belonging to Takfiri groups fighting against the Syrian government to hospitals in Israel.

According to reports by Israeli media on Monday, two of the Takfiri militants were transported to Nahariya Hospital in Galilee, and the third one was taken to Poriya Hospital in the Israeli coastal city of Tiberias. The reports also revealed that in excess of 449 wounded militants have been treated at Nahariya Hospital. Last month, the Israeli media said, “Poriya Hospital has treated 124 wounded from Syria so far.”

According to documents from Israeli hospitals, Israel’s army paid USD 10 million up until September this year for the costs of treatment to the foreign-sponsored militants injured during battles with Syrian government forces, and the money has come from the Israeli military’s budget. In October, Israeli political commentator, Ehud Yaari, said the Tel Aviv regime has provided medical treatment for over 1,400 wounded militants from Syria.

Yaari added that some militant groups operating inside Syria maintain contact with the Israeli army and have had secret meetings with Israeli military figures in Tiberias. In February,  Muhammad Badie, a Syrian anti-government leader told Israeli media outlets that the Syrian opposition was grateful to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his February 18 tour to a field hospital in the occupied Golan Heights.

Israel’s Channel 2 News aired footage of a secret Israeli field hospital in the occupied Golan Heights that has treated over 700 Syrians, including militants, over the past months. Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

McCain with the ISIS Leader. He did it in full front of the media. Let’s see where the story goes

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

June 24th I did an article both on my old blog ShaunyNews and here on Ace News. I can only find the ShaunyNews one.

Now wait for this!

Now wait for this!


Just the other day, US Senator John McCain said that “One of the key decisions the President is going to have to make is air power in Syria. We cannot give ISIS a base of operations.” McCain has been very outspoken against ISIS and that the president step up efforts to eradicate them. But this was not the case just one year ago. On the same day that the above photo was taken, hours earlier the photo below was taken as well. John McCain is seen talking intently with Ibrahim al-Badri, otherwise known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader and commander of the Islamic State in Iraq, otherwise known as ISIS.

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, wearing the black shirt on the far left, is seen in deep discussions with John McCain. Within 12 short months of these photos being taken, al-Baghdadi would explode on the scene in 2014 as the leader of monstrous terror group ISIS. John McCain does not deny the existence of these photos, obviously, as he posted one to his own Twitter account. Click image to view this photo on his own Twitter page above. How do you feel as an American, never mind a McCain fan! This is one big stage, it’s a pantomime, many countries are involved, America fund ISIS/IS/Islamic State and we all know now 100% that the USA own’s and fund’s Al Qaeda, this has been proven many times.

 Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, strong story he died, I am yet to be convinced. This isn't the same guy!

Go check John McCain’s Twitter, these images are still there. Why did he meet IS/ISIS/Islamic State

Why is there no mention of this in the main stream media? Why is this story being buried? Did McCain help funnel money and weapons to al-Baghdadi after his secret meeting in 2013? Is ISIS a creation of the Pentagon? How did ISIS get so big so fast? Why is McCain saying “ISIS Need our help” then America go blow them to bits, or pretend to, depends what you believe. Look back to Donald Rumsfeld doing arms deals with Saddam Hussein, HISTORY REPEATING AMERICA! 


open your minds people…This is right in your face!









I have asked and asked and asked and NOBODY can or will debate me on these images and I will add the website this time. The US Close down was because the US Military refused to go to Syria, go do some research and see what US Military Generals got fired in or around the time of the America close down, October 1st through 16th, 2013, go look who got fired. http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/08/09/a-military-coup-will-remove-obama/ I stand by my source on this one and with each passing week the ‘Elite’ jigsaw is coming together. Why can’t ONE American debate me on this?

US Bombed ‘Empty Buildings’ in Airstrikes on ISIL in Syria

Seems a lot of empty buildings were hit. Why?

Seems a lot of empty buildings were hit. Why?

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

According CNN Middle East correspondent Arwa Damon, residents from the town of Raqqa, in northeastern Syria had “mixed reactions to US strikes”. The reason given was a real shocker:
Damon revealed on air early Wednesday that ISIL terrorists who were held up in the town may have been tipped off weeks in advance to the US airstrikes on Tuesday. According to Damon:
“15-20 days before the airstrikes, (ISIL) buildings were evacuated, and fighters then mixed in with the local population”.Maybe Damon let the truth slip out by accident, or maybe she was trying to do what US journalists so often are not allowed to do by challenging Washington’s prefabricated narrative. Regardless, CNN’s chief war enthusiast Wolf Blitzer did not feel the need to pursue the point. This surprising admission by CNN would mean that the US military may have only destroyed empty buildings in Raqqa, and that Washington’s inflated claims of dead ISIL fighters are probably exaggerated. In other words, it was all a big show, and ISIL’s capabilities were not degraded at all by Obama’s celebrated US blitzkrieg in Syria.

Dab007 Video

CENTCOM Has a Leak

If ISIS/ISIL operatives did indeed have advanced warning of US airstrikes in Syria – as this CNN report definitely suggests, then we also have to ask, where was the leak? The most likely source of a leak would be from US CENTCOM located in Doha, Qatar.

The other possibility is that ISIS/ISIL financial sponsors in Saudi Arabia and Qatar had received word of the coming US operation and were instructed to vacate any potential targets.

No Chance of Transparency

Many military experts have questioned the US airstrikes as ‘ineffective’ because targeting static venues will not deter ISIS/ISIL, and these latest revelations will only reinforce that skepticism. So how much can the public trust US reports of its own bombing campaigns? As far as gathering and verifying intelligence goes, how can we know if  US operatives knew who was where? Usually Washington can say anything and the mainstream press will not question it. If you are a bona fide intelligence analysts, it can’t be easy – with political busy bodies and State Department geniuses revising their work, and then going back to the intelligence community asking for ‘authentification’ of various Tweets and ‘very chilling’ YouTube videos the White House has scraped-up off the web. As a result, assessments are often conflicting, and patchy – a running mess by anyone’s account. Given that Washington DC has a diabolical no track record of being highly politicized when it comes to ‘intelligence’, it’s hard swallow anything coming out of Pennsylvania Ave.

At the end of the day, they tell us what they want us to hear.

Well it looks likes ISIS/IS have been given a huge helping hand to take over Syria pushing Assad to the South west of his country. This is a big thing for ‘The thing for the new Islamic State’ in reality this just allowed ISIS or whoever they call themselves these days time and space to get bigger. I did this article here a while back https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/isis-leader-calls-on-every-muslim-to-go-to-the-territory-in-a-hitleresque-speech-the-world-cant-ignore/ asked for all who sided with them to come to “The Territory” My thinking, with John McCain meeting the heads of ISIS were “SET UP” Get them all there and bomb them, job done, go home and bob’s your Uncle. Well it hasn’t went this way at all. And ISIS gave a map of  where they hope to take, very similar to Hitler. Links at the bottom of the page to this and McCain speaking to ISIS/Islamic State, I am unsure if these guys killed were the ones the USA were supposed be arming with Weapons, and not for free, so what gives? I smell a RAT!

Photos of ‘John McCain’ Seen With ISIS Leaders in Syria Before Their Rampage Through Iraq


Nearly fifty senior commanders of a major coalition of Islamic ‘moderates’ opposed to ISIS in Syria have been killed by an explosion at their secret command bunker as they met to discuss strategy against the the Islamic State.

The blast in the Northwest region of Idlib, Syria on Tuesday killed senior members of rebel group the Ahrar-al-Sham brigade (AaS), including leader Hassan Abboud and 45 others including senior members from other rebel alliance groups, reports The Times. The Idlib region stands in AaS territory, but it is close to the front-line with ISIS in neighbouring Aleppo.

Sources dispute the source of the blast, with it being unclear whether it was an opposition group, suicide bomber, or accidental explosion at a nearby ammunition dump. Regardless, the incident will destabilise and possibly tear apart the AaS group and associated Islamic Front Coalition which was recently described as “the most powerful armed group in Syria”. Islamic group Ahrar-al-Sham, whose name translates as ‘The Free Men of Syria’, is one of many movements competing in the inter-rebel conflict in Syria. A number of rebel groups are presently fighting each other as well as besieged Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose power base is in West and South-West, for overall control of the Region.

As the main rival to ISIS for control of Syria, the AaS blast if not orchestrated by the Islamic State will certainly be greatly beneficial to them. The ‘decapitation’ strategy, targeting Ahrar-al-Sham’s political, military and spiritual leadership is reminiscent of the United States’ targeted strikes against the leadership of Al-Qaeda. The death of Abboud and his followers in Idlib highlights the difficulty of Western involvement in the conflict, where enemies of the apparent first enemy ISIS also make fairly poor potential allies. Many members of AaS have come from groups like Al-Qaeda and would in any other context be considered hard line Islamists.

The Ahrar-al-Sham brigade has also been extremely critical of Western involvement in the conflict. In an interview before his death leader Abboud rejected the Geneva peace conference saying: “We see Geneva as a tool of manipulation; to derail the Syrian revolution away from its goals and objectives …. Whatever outcome the conference may yield, will be binding on the Syrian National Coalition only. For us, we will continue to fight for our revolution until we restore our rights”. Ahrar-al-Sham has appointed a new leader, Hashim al-Sheikh, who will attempt to hold together the fragile coalition which has lost most of its senior thinkers and strategists. al-Sheik said the attack “will only make us more resilient to fight and continue the fight until we liberate our homeland” on Wednesday.

This happened a few days ago, you may or may not know about it. I have had my head buried in the Pro-Scotland movement  https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Scotland








UK Terror Threat Level Raised To Severe

This is all over the net tonight

This is all over the net tonight

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation. Geraint Hughes uses the term to refer to those acts carried out by “military or security force personnel, which are then blamed on terrorists.”
In its most modern usage, the term may also refer to those events which governments are cognizant of and able to stop but choose to allow to happen (or “stand down”), as a strategy to entangle or prepare the nation for war. Furthermore, the term “false flag terrorism” may even be used in those instances when violence is carried out by groups or organizations which, whether they know it or not, are being supported or controlled by the “victim” nation. deHaven-Smith argues that the terminology has become looser in recent years due to the increasingly complex levels of “duplicity” and “international intrigue” between states. Some argue that false flags are methods used by deep states as a form of deep politics.
The name “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag as a ruse de guerre, before engaging the enemy, has long been acceptable.[4] Such operations are also acceptable in certain circumstances in land warfare, to deceive enemies in similar ways providing that the deception is not perfidious and all such deceptions are discarded before opening fire upon the enemy.

Look over here while we do this over there

The government has raised Britain’s terror threat level from substantial to severe because of the threat from militant groups in the Middle East. A severe threat means an attack is deemed to be “highly likely”, but there is no intelligence to suggest one is imminent. At a press conference in London, David Cameron said an attack was more likely because of the increased threat from militant groups in Iraq and Syria, where Islamic State (IS) have seized large swathes of territory.

Terror threat levels



Syria conflict: Islamic State militants ‘kill Syrian soldiers’ – BBC News

Britain’s spies now judge a terrorist attack on British soil to be ‘highly likely’. So should we be losing sleep at nights about the raised threat level? It’s not good news from Downing Street, that’s for sure. ‘The scale of this threat is growing,’ David Cameron said ominously at a hastily-arranged press conference at No 10. He’s talking about the risk from around 500 British-born jihadists who have gone to fight in Syria and now Iraq. It’s the emergence of Isil which is so concerning. As the prime minister explained, it’s not like this is a terrorist organisation being sheltered by a sympathetic government, as was the case with Afghanistan’s Taliban providing safe haven for Al-Qaida. This is worse. Isil is ‘actually seeking to establish and then violently expand its own terrorist state’. Some might want to ignore this, but not Cameron. ‘The ambition to create an extremist caliphate is a threat to our own security here in the UK. http://metro.co.uk/2014/08/29/terror-threat-level-raised-by-david-cameron-how-worried-should-we-be-4850534/


MP David Cameron FULL Press Conference: UK Raises Terror Threat Level to ‘SEVERE’


The Prime Minister added the UK was in the midst of a “generational struggle” against a “poisonous ideology” and that IS posed a “greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before”. “We could be facing a terrorist state on the shores of the Mediterranean and bordering a Nato member,” he said, adding that Britain’s security services believed at least 500 Britons have gone to fight in Syria and potentially Iraq. The PM also announced new legislation that would make it easier to remove passports from people who may travel abroad to fight, adding that the Taliban had harboured and facilitated al Qaida terrorism, but IS was effectively a state run by terrorists.

Islamic State militants have declared a state in parts of Iraq and Syria

Meanwhile, the White House has said it does not expect to raise the US terror threat level. Speaking before the PM’s statement, Home Secretary Theresa May said: “The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the West. “Some of those plots are likely to involve foreign fighters who have travelled there from the UK and Europe to take part in those conflicts. We face a real and serious threat in the UK from international terrorism. “I would urge the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to the police.” Police forces say they will increase their patrols in response to the raising of the terror threat, which is set by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC). The JTAC’s decision comes amid growing concern about hundreds of aspiring British jihadis travelling to Iraq and Syria and the murder of American journalist James Foley Haras Rafiq from counter-extremist think tank the Quilliam Foundation, said that IS terrorists may want to target high-profile gatherings in the UK.

Terror threat raised

Police patrols will be increased to act as a deterrent to attack.

“Next week we have a very important Nato conference in Wales. It would be right to suggest that ISIS may well want to target high-profile targets like that. “The danger is also from a wider aspect in terms of European fighters. We talk about Britain having a large number of fighters out there, but per captia Belgium is the worst offender. “The threat is not just from Britain it’s from a wider European perspective.” Sky News police analyst Graham Whetton said the raised level would trigger increased policing levels and public alertness to suspicious activity. “Police will contact transport hubs and sports stadiums and ask them to increase their vigilance and security checks. The airports will get the same threat level increase so they will be asked to raise their awareness and alertness. “Police cannot have eyes and ears everywhere. Officers need communities and families to bring to their attention anybody they perceive may be vulnerable or in danger of escalating towards terrorism. “That is a key piece of the anti-terrorism jigsaw, getting people to come forward with any information they may have.” Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the UK’s most senior police officer, said Scotland Yard is ready for an influx in case large numbers of homegrown extremists return at the same time. National Policing Lead for Counter-Terrorism, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, said: “We need communities and families to bring to our attention anyone they perceive may be vulnerable, a danger or escalating towards terrorism.

FBI, Homeland Security Bulletin Asks Police To Be Aware Of ISIS




BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Federal authorities sent a bulletin to U.S. law enforcement Friday in light of the threat concerning militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to CBS News. The bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI cites no known threat to the U.S. homeland, but reminds law enforcement to be alert and aware of the ISIS threat, CBS reported. U.S. law enforcement has been intensifying efforts to identify Islamic State sympathizers who could help export the group’s brand of violent jihad to the United States. They come amid a new barrage of U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State group that beheaded American journalist James Foley of Rochester, New Hampshire. The group called Foley’s killing revenge for previous strikes against militants in Iraq.

WBZ-TV security analyst Ed Davis says there’s no question the stakes have been raised by ISIS running from Syria through Iraq. “They’ve not only collected ransom from European countries for hostages but they’ve sacked several banks that have given them hundreds of millions of dollars,” Davis said. “When you see an organization that’s this well grounded in tactics also having the ability financially to move those plans forward it’s a very troubling time,” he added. Davis called the ISIS militants highly trained military people who know exactly what they’re doing.




ISIS Demanded £80m For Journalist’s Release

The US says it has "stalled" the Islamic State's advance as a manhunt continues for a militant who beheaded an American reporter.

The US says it has “stalled” the Islamic State’s advance as a manhunt continues for a militant who beheaded an American reporter.

Islamic State (IS) fighters who beheaded American journalist James Foley had demanded £80m ($132.5m) for his release, according to AP news service. Two anonymous American officials quoted by AP said the ransom demands were sent in emails to Mr Foley’s family in New Hampshire. The US – unlike several European countries that have given millions to the terror group to spare their citizens – refused to pay. A gruesome video was released of the reporter being killed by an IS jihadist in which the group says it is acting in retaliation for US airstrikes in Iraq. US Attorney General Eric Holder said a criminal investigation has been launched into the murder. Counter-terrorism police in the UK have already begun efforts to identify the black-clad man beheading the 40-year-old.

Although his face is covered, he speaks with an English, possibly London, accent. People previously held hostage by IS have suggested he may be a Jihadist known as “John” who was part of a group guarding captives in Syria.  A former hostage, who was held for a year in the Syrian town of Raqqa, told The Guardian the killer was the ringleader of a trio of UK-born extremists nicknamed “The Beatles” because of their nationality. The two others were reportedly dubbed Paul and Ringo. American airstrikes have continued against IS forces in northern Iraq, despite the group threatening to kill a second US captive if attacks go on.  US Navy fighters and drones provided air cover to Iraqi and Kurdish forces trying to retake and maintain control of the strategically important Mosul Dam.

The US military has carried out 90 air strikes in Iraq since August 8, with 57 of them in support of Iraqi government forces near the dam. Meanwhile, Interpol has called for a globally co-ordinated push to stop the tide of international fighters joining IS, also known as Isis. It did not give any specific recommendations, but said it is particularly concerned that Mr Foley’s killer may be British. “(This highlights) the need for a multilateral response against the terror threat posed by radicalised transnational fighters travelling to conflict zones in the Middle East,” said Interpol Secretary-General Ronald Noble.  More than 1,000 radicals from Europe have joined Islamist militants in Syria and Iraq, and Interpol has long warned of the threat such fighters pose. European governments fear they could stage attacks when they get home and have introduced new anti-terrorism measures to try to catch them or stop them leaving in the first place. Earlier, a US journalist and Muslim convert – who has experience of Western jihadi fighters in Syria – told Sky News the UK Government’s approach to the issue is completely wrong.

Bilal says UK Government is ‘totally clueless’ in how to deal with ISIS

Bilal said: “Isis realises that by using a Western voice to push the narrative for them, it would get a coverage that they would not have gotten, had that been a Syrian voice or an Iraqi voice.” He added: “They operate very much like a gang-like mentality. There are some Brits that are there that wanted out … but they don’t have any place to go. Where are they going to go to exactly? “The issue is that if they were to leave the ranks of Isis (are) they going to trade that for a UK jail cell? “I think that the British government is totally clueless in terms of how to deal with this issue … and despite the education that a lot of their leaders have, they appear as if they are totally perplexed.”
