An IS Ramadan
Friday, June 26, 2015
The Islamic State decided to celebrate the beginning of Ramadan and the anniversary of their reestablishment of the caliphate with a call for attacks on their enemies—the infidels abroad and the Shia at home. According to the IS spokesman;
Jihadists should make Ramadan a time of calamity for the infidels ... Shi’ites and apostate Muslims and;
Muslims everywhere, we congratulate you over the arrival of the holy month. Be keen to conquer in this holy month and to become exposed to martyrdom.
They got their wish with three attacks today; a beheading in France, a bombing in Kuwait and a mass shooting in Tunisia. The body count stands at 63 killed and over 230 wounded, as of now. IS claimed credit for all three bloody assaults.
The attack in France obviously targeted the French but it also took a swipe at the US. They beheaded a Frenchman then drove their car into an American owned gas factory hoping to cause an explosion.
In Tunisia, a gunman with an automatic rifle opened fire on sunbathers on a beach in Sousse. The spot is popular with foreign tourists. So for, 37 were killed and 36 were wounded. The dead include Tunisians, Brits, Germans and Belgians.
In Kuwait, the target was a Kuwait City Shia Mosque. A suicide bomber walked in during Friday prayers and detonated his vest killing at least 25 and wounding 200 more.
Ramadan lasts for an entire month and if this is the beginning, it will be long and bloody.
“iGuerilla should be the first book packed in the duffel bag for those carrying the fight to the enemy.”
