Beyond Iraq, what is the intent of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria?

 

Recall all of the naysayers who criticized, mocked, and demeaned President George W. Bush when he stated that (paraphrased here) ‘we will fight them over there [Iraq] so we won’t need to fight them here in America’?

If you think that the current ISIS terrorists are planning to stop their radical Islamic caliphate in Iraq, then you aren’t paying attention!

WASHINGTON – Beyond Iraq, what is the intent of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria?

There appears to be short- and long-term goals, with a hint of those intentions in the name ISIS has chosen for itself.

Its real name is the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham, meaning Greater Syria.

ISIS, morphing from the Islamic State of Iraq before it was excommunicated from al-Qaida central in Pakistan last year for its extreme Wahhabi brutality, appears to have intentions of re-creating Greater Syria into an Islamic caliphate, subject to strict Shariah law.

Historically, Greater Syria, corresponding to Greater Assyria, included all of the Levant and Mesopotamia, or modern-day Iraq.

The Levant incorporates the Eastern Mediterranean countries of Cyprus, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, parts of Turkey and northeast Africa, including the Sinai Peninsula.

Already, the terror group’s lightning attacks span from northeast Syria into western and central Iraq. It is knocking on Baghdad’s door and could potentially head further south to take over those oil refineries that provide oil to the world.

At that end, there’s also Sunni Kuwait, which deposed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein once referred to as Iraq’s 13th province as justification for invading the country.

At the same time, there’s concern that ISIS will move into Jordan where there is major dissatisfaction of the reign of King Abdullah II bin al-Hussein. The king’s concerns are so great that he has requested U.S. military assistance to prevent it from becoming part of ISIS’ Islamist caliphate.

There are reports that the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, already is meeting with his war planners to determine what it will do beyond Syria and Iraq.

According to informed sources, al-Baghdadi’s top director of operations in ISIS’ blitzkrieg from Syria and now into Iraq is Al Nasir Li Din Allah Abu Sulayman.

He is described as a behind-the-scenes jihadist who shuns publicity. According to Long War Journal, Abu Sulayman is regarded as ISIS’ war minister. LWJ said that “Al Nasir Li Din Allah” is an honorific term meaning “The Victor of the Religion of God.”

According to sources, Abu Sulayman’s real name is Neaman Salman Mansour al-Zaidi. He may be Moroccan with Syrian citizenship.

Sources say that after Iraq, ISIS may focus on Jordan, which shares borders with Iraq and Syria, making it easy to invade the country.

ISIS already has publicly called for the execution of Jordan’s King Abdullah, blasting him as an infidel and apostate.

A recent ISIS YouTube threatened to “slaughter” the king. Many of those appearing in the video were Jordanian citizens who tore up their passports in front of the camera and promised to launch suicide attacks inside Jordan.

Beyond Jordan and the immediate Greater Syria region, there is concern among security experts that ISIS’ success will spawn spinoff groups similar to it in other countries.

That’s because ISIS’ rapid successes have inspired other jihadist groups to join its bandwagon and attract new recruits from young, unemployed youth in those countries, numbers of which are massive.

It certainly would be the case in Lebanon where WND recently visited as unemployed Syrians escaping the civil war next door looked for means to survive alongside Palestinians in their camps where unemployment is said to be 90 percent.

I suggest reading the entire article. However, the following excerpt (along with a quote from 0bama at a link below) is scary and eerie!

“ISIS is a threat not only to moderate Arabs and Muslims, but also to Israel, which the terrorists say is their ultimate destination,” according to regional expert Khaled Abu Toameh of the Gatestone Institute.

“The U.S. and its Western allies need to wake up quickly and take the necessary measures to prevent the Islamist terrorists from achieving their goal,” he said.

Beyond the region, what other goal does ISIS have?

An indication of that comes from Army Col. Kenneth King, who was commanding officer at Camp Bucca in Iraq where Al-Baghdadi was in a U.S. custody.

Upon his release through what observers say was under a general amnesty, King said that al-Baghdadi said, “I’ll see you guys in New York.”

Recall when 0bama stated that he was more concerned about a nuke in New York?

See: Buzzfeed.com: 0bama is more concerned about a nuke in New York.

He said that back in March, 2014!

People, we are surely witnessing Bible Prophecy!
