He stops the car and asks the farmer “Shouldn’t you be shearing it?”, to which the farmer responds “”I’m not shearing it with anyone!”

Meet the New Zealand terrorist who was shearing his location with everyone!

kiwi-jihadi-in-al-tabqah-03dec2014-10dec2014-geotrack-1-ibraboIt’s a rookie social media mistake and one that intelligence and law enforcement agencies pray for when tracking criminals. This week one of New Zealand’s well known jihadists, Mark Taylor (Twitter aka: Kiwi Jihadi or @M_Taylor_Kiwi), removed 45 tweets after he discovered that he was broadcasting his twitter location to every intelligence agency (and others) keeping tabs on him. Unfortunately for him we captured all of them prior to him removing the tweets and will discuss the value of the intelligence they contained.

—-

Taylor eager for the fame of being a violent jihadist took to twitter to get attention for his exploits. His statements and twitter missteps have solidified his involvement with ISIS and will provide the evidence should he ever try to return to New Zealand. His ignorance and the ignorance of others has been an advantage to intelligence agencies around the world looking to protect their nations and track the progress of ISIS. Even examining his most recent twitter photo update, Taylor shows again his lack of understanding of technology and intelligence as he broadcast out the facial image of another fighter captured in the background of his photo.

Here’s hoping this jihadumbass meets the same fate as his Twitter account: termination.

Norwegian Fakes Syrian War P0rn Video In Malta http://www.israellycool.com/2014/11/15/norwegian-fakes-syrian-war-porn-video-in-malta/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/11/15/norwegian-fakes-syrian-war-porn-video-in-malta/#comments Sat, 15 Nov 2014 19:38:25 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=69687 Old and denied a visa: A Norwegian Doctor Confirmed.

New hotness: A Norwegian Director Confirmed.

A week ago someone released the following clip and promoted it as a Syrian “hero” little boy rescuing a little girl all the while under sniper fire from a bunch of laughing Jihadis. I first saw it being tweeted around and felt a little ill. It wasn’t that the boy was acting as a hero which grabbed me: it was the casual way in which people were shooting at what were obviously two kids. I then wondered how long it would be till someone would re-upload it and pretend they were Palestinian kids being shot at by Israelis.

It’s now been confirmed by the Norwegian Director of the film that it was filmed last summer in Malta with little Maltese kids, a crew of dozens and with a grant from the Norwegian government! He spoke to the BBC:

Lars Klevberg, a 34-year-old film director based in Oslo, wrote a script after watching news coverage of the conflict in Syria. He says he deliberately presented the film as reality in order to generate a discussion about children in conflict zones.

“If I could make a film and pretend it was real, people would share it and react with hope,” he said. “We shot it in Malta in May this year on a set that was used for other famous movies like Troy and Gladiator,” Klevberg said. “The little boy and girl are professional actors from Malta. The voices in the background are Syrian refugees living in Malta.”

In fact the film received funding from the Norwegian Film Institute (NFI) and the Audio and Visual Fund from Arts Council Norway in October 2013. The filmmakers say their application for funding made clear they wanted to upload the film to the internet without making it obvious it was real or fiction. They also claim that those who financed it were aware of, and supported, these intentions.

This is exactly what Pallywood is: those of us who’ve been looking at what the Palestinians and their supporters produce for years recognise their method of operation. The only difference is, nobody ever owns up.

This is starting to cause a bit of a stir now that so many, and especially the Arab sources, feel they were duped. Good. They wanted to be duped and that’s the power of this kind of propaganda.

Syrians have responded with outrage to a video showing a young boy rescuing a girl while under gunfire, after it emerged on Friday that the clip had been staged by a Norwegian filmmaker who said he wanted to raise awareness about the conflict.

One of the Arab journalists I follow (because she’s usually reasonable and accurate) asked her followers their views and re-tweeted back their best ones:

We can only hope this starts to apply to the videos people push out purporting to be Israeli indiscretions against Palestinians.

It’s also why we really try to be careful here at Israellycool: we can’t get every call right but I can assure you this, we really do try.

The famous Mohammad al Durah video was as fake and as scripted and directed as this. That’s beyond doubt. So many more video have been pushed out by the studios of Pallywood since and everyone aims to demonise the Jews and Israel. Be on your guard.

Update: Added my tweet to the director and his tweet with a link to a full statement.

Mavi Marmara “Peace Activist” Killed After Joining ISIS In Syria http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/28/mavi-marmara-peace-activist-killed-after-joining-isis-in-syria/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/28/mavi-marmara-peace-activist-killed-after-joining-isis-in-syria/#comments Sun, 28 Sep 2014 15:30:10 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=67833 Remember the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, where Israeli commandos boarded an “aid” ship headed to Gaza and killed 9 passengers after they attacked the commandos with live fire and light weaponry, including knives and clubs? It turned out the ship contained no humanitarian aid at all.

Nevertheless, realpolitik (and a lack of backbone) led to us caving in to Turkish demands to issue a formal apology and we agreed to pay compensation.

Then earlier this year, Turkish police raided offices of the IHH, the so-called “aid” organization behind the Mavi Marmara, due to an alleged al Qaeda connection.

This is all a preamble to the latest not-at-all-surprising news that one of the Mavi Marmara passengers was just killed in Syria. With ISIS.

yaakov bolinet alniakA member of the IHH, designated a terrorist organization by Israel, was killed during US airstrikes in Syria on Tuesday according to Turkish reports, after having made the leap from attacking Shayetet 13 elite commandos on the Marmara flotilla in 2010, to serving the will of Islamic State (ISIS) militants accused of committing atrocities during a swift military advance across the Middle East.

Ya’akov Bolinet Alniak, a well-known figure within the IHH, even wrote a book about the violent incident aboard the Marmara that was boarded by Shayetet commandos as it tried to run the Israeli blockade on Gaza. Nine of those aboard the ship were killed in the ensuing violent clashes and Alniak was apparently one of those who were directly engaged in attacking the Israeli troops.

According to the Turkish reports, Alniak, father of two, joined the ranks of ISIS recently and was directly involved in combat in Syria. One of his last Facebook posts before being killed in US strikes on an ISIS camp in Syria read, “My life and death are for Allah”.

Meanwhile, I’ve always wondered what happened to this fellow Mavi Marmara passenger.

I somehow doubt he ended up working in the kitchen at KFC.

“You Bewdy!” Is In The Eye Of The Beheader http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/18/you-bewdy-is-in-the-eye-of-the-beheader/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/18/you-bewdy-is-in-the-eye-of-the-beheader/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:26:47 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=67447 One of my favorite comedy shows growing up was one called Australia You’re Standing In It. I mention this because these days, Australia really is standing in it. And it’s no joke.

Sydney terror accused Omarjan Azari was allegedly working with Australia’s most senior ISIL member and Underbelly actor Mohammad Baryalei to commit acts of terror, police have said.

A curved sword resembling a scimitar, emblazoned with Arabic script, was recovered from a house searched in this morning’s police raids.

Azari faced Central Local Court today charged with serious terrorism-related offences.

9NEWS understands Azari is accused of plotting to abduct people off the streets and decapitate them in a manner similar to the recent ISIL beheadings of US and UK citizens in Syria.

Azari allegedly intended to wrap the bodies of victims in ISIL flags and upload video of the murders online.

The video would help fuel the ISIL terror campaign which has led to the formation of an international coalition to eliminate the group.

Ironically, Mohammad Baryalei played a paramedic on Underbelly. I guess he wanted to upgrade from television and be coming soon to a theater near you.

But this really underscores that nowhere is safe from Islamic terrorism. To think you are is deluding yourselves.

Moron Of The Day: Mark John Taylor aka Mohammad Daniel aka Abu Abdul-Rahman http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/16/moron-of-the-day-mark-john-taylor-aka-mohammad-daniel-aka-abu-abdul-rahman/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/16/moron-of-the-day-mark-john-taylor-aka-mohammad-daniel-aka-abu-abdul-rahman/#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:26:02 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=67399

Yeah, about that Jihadic commitment..

A New Zealander who declared he was on jihad, burned his passport and posted the charred remains on Facebook when he ran away to Syria reportedly wants to come home.

Mark John Taylor wants a new passport after he previously posted his destroyed document online with the caption ‘one-way trip’.

However, the New Zealand government have allegedly not replied to his requests for a new passport.

In an interview with Aotearoa Independent Media Centre, the bearded Kiwi said he plans to leave Syria around late October.

‘I only went there for adventure Jihad, but along the way I realised Syria is in a very dire need of humanity aid and support,’ he said, refuting his alleged terrorist activities.

Adventure Jihad. That’s a thing?

adventure jihad

But of course he’s lying.

In July this year he told the New Zealand Herald on Sunday that he would remain in Syria until he achieved ‘martyrdom’.
He said he became a jihad because he was ‘refused by the NZ Army for re-enlistment’.

Unless he was misheard and he really said “Partydom.” Don’t laugh, it could have happened.

Naa, maybe not. The Jihadumbass has posted other incriminating things on his Facebook page.

Yep, just an adventure Jihad.

 

Not surprisingly, this is not the first time he’s gone off to a terrorist stronghold, armed with a really bad excuse.

In September 2011, he appeared on TV3’s 60 Minutes and claimed his life had been ruined after he previously travelled to Pakistan in 2009 and tried to enter the al-Qaeda stronghold of Wana.

He said he had only travelled to the Middle Eastern country to ‘find a wife’.

I’m guessing this moron is going to end up as worm food.

UNDOF, 1974-2014 http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/15/undof-1974-2014/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/15/undof-1974-2014/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 17:42:04 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=67344 Update Below

United Nations Disengagement Observer Force – UNDOF, as of today, is no more.

U.N. peacekeepers in the Golan Heights are being relocated from four positions and one camp on the Syrian side of the Syrian-Israeli border, a diplomatic source said on Monday after recent clashes with al-Qaeda-linked militants.

“Staff in U.N. positions 10, 16, 31 and 37, as well as Camp Faouar on the (Syrian) side are being relocated,” the source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

There was no suggestion that the U.N. peacekeeping mission in the Golan Heights, known as UNDOF, was shutting down. Last month 45 UNDOF peacekeepers were kidnapped by Islamist militants fighting the Syrian army. They were released last week.

The Fijian withdrawal, along with all remaining UNDOF personnel on the Syrian side, are now safe and sound in Israel, far from the reach of Jabhat al-Nusra and other Syrian groups.

This shameful end befits the UN peacekeeping mission.

UNDOF, and the UN which oversees its mission, have had almost 4 years to adapt to the changing reality on the ground. By superficially extending the mandate every 6 months, and due to a complete lack of awareness of anything going on around them in the Syrian civil war, UNDOF became its own undoing.

Just how much of a sham UNDOF was, one can see by their own maps

undof-page-001 Notice anything strange about the Israeli localities on the Golan?

Look closer.

.

.

.

There aren’t any.

Instead, UNDOF listed farms and villages that haven’t existed for half a century.

Notice also how the map doesn’t actually show Israel west of Line Alpha.

If UNDOF doesn’t recognize Israel’s legitimacy on the Golan, even as all UNDOF personnel are currently sheltering in the Israeli Golan under the safety and protection of Israel soldiers, there really isn’t any need for UNDOF.

Good riddance, and may your memory be a warning to United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon – UNIFIL, and those suggesting Israel let UN peacekeepers man the Jordan valley after an Israeli withdrawal from that area.

Update:

UN peacekeeping operations department has issued a statement to Business Insider:

The situation in UN Disengagement Force on the Syrian side and the area of separation, has deteriorated severely over the last several days. Armed groups have made advances in the area of UNDOF positions, posing a direct threat to the safety and security of the UN Peacekeepers along the “Bravo” line and in Camp Faouar. All of UN personnel in these positions have thus been relocated to the Alpha side. UNDOF continues to use all available assets to carry out its mandated tasks in this exceptionally challenging period and environment.

Alpha line is lingo for Israel.

Israel Haters Offer “Proof” ISIS Is A Zionist Conspiracy http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/15/israel-haters-offer-proof-isis-is-a-zionist-conspiracy/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/09/15/israel-haters-offer-proof-isis-is-a-zionist-conspiracy/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:59:11 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=67255 True to form, haters of Israel – who perhaps can’t explain away the beheadings and general brutality – are claiming that ISIS is a Zionist conspiracy (although there are still those who prefer to blame just the rage on Israel).

The latest “proof” offered for this bowl of baths*t crazy is the following video, purported to be of ISIS terrorists burning the palestinian flag.

Smoking flag gun? Hardly.

This is the palestinian flag:

Flag_of_Palestine

And this is the flag of the Ba’ath Party:

flag_of_the_Ba'ath_Party

Yeah, they are pretty much identical. Both the palestinian flag and Ba’ath Party flags are based on the one used by Arab nationalists during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire in World War I.

And it is understandable why ISIS would be burning the Ba’ath Party flag,

So this anti-Israel propaganda effort is really just a false flag operation. So to speak.

The Israel haters really should learn their flags better.

Sexual Jihad: Men Beheading Badly http://www.israellycool.com/2014/08/29/sexual-jihad-men-beheading-badly/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/08/29/sexual-jihad-men-beheading-badly/#comments Fri, 29 Aug 2014 06:54:47 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=66293 “Is that a gun in your pocket or are you happy to see me?”

“Sign me up!”

Malaysian women are believed to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) forces to offer Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual jihad, senior intelligence officials told The Malaysian Insider.

Authorities confirmed that three Malaysian women have journeyed to the Middle East to join up with Isis forces.

Jihad Al-Nikah refers to a controversial concept where Sunni women allegedly offer themselves in sexual comfort roles to fighters for the establishment of Islamic rule.

The concept originated from a Wahhabi edict around 2013, that called for Sunni women supporters to come forward for sex jihad and boost the morale of fighters battling against Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

“These women are believed to have offered themselves in sexual comfort roles to Isis fighters who are attempting to establish Islamic rule in the Middle East.

“This concept may seem controversial but it has arisen as certain Muslim women here are showing sympathy for the Isis struggle,” an intelligence official told The Malaysian Insider.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said one of the Malaysian women had travelled to the Middle East in December last year.

“The woman, in her 30s, went to Turkey before meeting up with middlemen who helped her to complete her journey to Syria via land routes.

“Another Malaysian woman in her 40s is believed to have linked up with Isis forces sometime in April this year,” the source said.

The intelligence official said Malaysian women were not the only ones who were performing sexual jihad as there were also other Muslim women involved.

“Intelligence exchanged with other countries revealed that Sunni Muslim women from Australia and the United Kingdom had also joined up with Isis.”

The intelligence official said Isis had issued a decree or edict in June this year ordering for the conscription of Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual jihad.

“Shortly after the town of Mosul in Iraq was captured by Isis forces, people were ordered to send unmarried women to jihad for sex,” the intelligence official revealed.

Jihad Al-Nikah? How about Jihad Without Knickers?

Talk about going commando.

This concept has apparently given rise to the naming of a new sexual position: Sunni side up.

Then fight with ISIS (he’s batsh*t crazy)

A Canadian jihadi fighting with the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) in Syria has said that he believes Israeli Jews would be allowed to join the faction and could even fight in Syria – if they converted to Islam first.

The jihadi, who goes by the nickname Abu Khalid al-Kanadi (“Abu Khalid the Canadian”) made the remark this week in response to a question asked to him via social networking site Ask.fm

I doubt he will win over many Jews with this rather ironic tweet:

What Roger Waters Won’t Tell You About His Latest Fundraising Effort http://www.israellycool.com/2014/08/18/what-roger-waters-wont-tell-you-about-his-latest-fundraising-effort/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/08/18/what-roger-waters-wont-tell-you-about-his-latest-fundraising-effort/#comments Mon, 18 Aug 2014 11:34:25 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=65572 Pink Floyd has seemingly endorsed a “pro palestinian” call from their former member, rock’n’roll BDSHole Roger Waters. Or at least whoever administers their Facebook page.

 

waters appeal

Well done Waters and Pink Floyd for mobilizing in the wake of what you call “catastrophic devastation” wrought in Gaza. I am sure the almost 200,000 so far killed in Syria appreciate your efforts.

What Waters isn’t telling you is how Makassed hospital ended up needing the money. Probably because Israel is not to blame.

For over 40 years, this hospital has been one of the premier medical centers for Palestinians, with its state-of-the-art facilities and dedicated staff providing some of the best care available to patients from the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It’s also a center for training doctors and nurses and offers some treatment competitive with Israelis hospitals such as pediatric cardiac surgery.

But all that is under threat of being shut down. Only the blame is not being leveled at Israel, the traditional scapegoat. This time, the hospital has taken the rare step of blaming the Palestinian Authority (PA) for the crisis.

“The Palestinian Authority has failed to pay for the cases referred and as a result the hospital ran into huge debts. We had to borrow tens of millions of dollars from local banks and pay interest, and since we couldn’t pay it back, banks are refusing to give us loans anymore,” said a hospital statement.

—-

As a charitable hospital, most of its equipment, including a newly installed MRI machine, is donated by bodies such as the Islamic Development Bank in Saudi Arabia and donors in Europe, the US and the Gulf states. But it must cover its running costs on its own, something that has become a huge challenge.

In the past, the hospital was supported by Kuwait, which funded it from its health ministry budget. But Kuwait halted the arrangement after PLO leader Yasser Arafat sided with Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Iraqi invasion of the Gulf state.

The hospital has scrambled for funding ever since, and eventually found support from the Palestinian Authority, which was set up in the West Bank and Gaza in 1994 as part of the Oslo peace agreement.

Today some 65% of its patients are referrals from the PA. Until this year, the PA covered some 90% of the bill, but as a charitable hospital even the 10% is often difficult to pay and Al-Makassed ends up swallowing the difference.

Its monthly income is $2.5 million while its running costs are nearly $3.5 million, putting it a million dollars in the hole every month that operations are normal. But this year a financial crisis in the PA has created a dire situation. The PA hasn’t paid the hospital for months and currently owes it nearly NIS 30 million.

Some 15-20% of the cases are from east Jerusalem Arabs who have coverage from Israeli sick funds. Some 15% of patients come independently and the rest from the PA, Rafai said.

—-

The PA has recently begun to trickle some funds to Al-Makassed, but it still hasn’t relayed the millions that it owes. A spokesman for the PA Ministry of Health declined to return repeated telephone calls.

What else he won’t tell you is that many of the hospital’s patients are East Jerusalem Arabs with medical benefits from Israel.

Some 15-20% of the cases are from east Jerusalem Arabs who have coverage from Israeli sick funds. Some 15% of patients come independently and the rest from the PA, Rafai said.

Nor the fact that even palestinians from the palestinian-controlled areas are treated in Israeli hospitals. Even terrorists. And there would be even more, had they not exploited our humanitarian gestures.
