That ISIS guy who promised to raise Islamic State flag over the White House? He’s dead

posted at 2:41 pm on August 21, 2014 by Noah Rothman

The Islamic State’s Press Officer Abu Mosa became a figure of international notoriety overnight when he took on a starring role in a captivating Vice News documentary about ISIS in Syria.

“Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones,” he said. “Instead, send us your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

Instead of doing that, according to the U.S. State Department, he’s just going to be dead.

Mosa was reportedly killed near the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria, where much of Vice’s documentary was shot. His death comes as Islamic State forces mount a long-awaited assault on the Tabqa Syrian military airbase.

raqqa

“The group in recent months has virtually eliminated the presence of President Bashar Assad’s military in Raqqa province, with the exception of Tabqa,” the Associated Press reported. “The air base is one of the most significant government military facilities in the area, containing several warplane squadrons, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition.”

Last month, Islamic State fighters overran the sprawling Division 17 military base in Raqqa, killing at least 85 soldiers. Two weeks later, the extremists seized the nearby Brigade 93 base after days of heavy fighting.

Mosa was a true zealot. His commitment to the cause of fundamentalist Islamic jihad took precedence over every other aspect of his life.

“I don’t return home for pleasure,” Mosa told Vice’s cameras. “The family, honestly, is the least important thing. There is a higher purpose.”

“No one would defend Muslims if we all sat at home with the family,” he continued.

He will not be missed. At least, not in the West.

You’re about 6 years late to the party with that, son. 0bama raised the islamic flag over the white house when he took office. And, he has been humiliating our troops and every other American with his incompetence and arrogance.

There has to be an efficient and cost effective method to spray large areas with ground pork. (Cooked or raw — I don’t care.)

catsandbooks on August 21, 2014 at 3:31 PM

.
What about pig/hog/swine manure ?

I helped perform some structural repairs to a large “pole barn” on a pig farm, where-in an open pit “digester” (that’s what they called it) filled with liquified pig manure continually produced methane gas, that ran a large engine, that turned a generator to produce electricity that powered the farm.
It was just like Barter Town in the third “Mad Max” movie ( Beyond Thunderdome ).

That has been, up to this point in my life, the most god-awful smell I’ve ever had to be around for an extended period of time.

Technically a skunk spray is worse, but I’ve never been stuck anywhere a skunk has sprayed, “for an extended period of time.”

listens2glenn on August 21, 2014 at 3:49 PM

OK – too many posts about the use of pig parts for this guy – can’t respond to each individually, so:
There are NO tasty parts of pig in he11 – cuz it’s not he11 if there’s bacon.
And no tasty pig parts should be wasted on these Muslim scum – that includes bacon, spam, pickled pig’s feet (which I like), ground pork, pork loin, ham, etc.
I don’t know of a good use for pig blood (except maybe in sausage), so I say we just dip all the ammo in pig blood, and maybe give all the Muslims a spritz of it at their burial – which should be in a mass pit on the grounds of a former pig farm.
There, that’s my rant….

I second the pig’s sh*t idea. That stuff makes driving to Wilmington a nightmare. You can smell it for miles and it is horrid. Why not just dump it from the skies? Got to be cheaper than smart bombs, and won’t technically kill anyone.

I love that idea.
How about a bomb designed for napalm? That might do a good job spreading pig shiite.
Or we could “re-purpose” a few MAFFS planes (the firefighting types) and fill the tanks with that liquified pig shiite L2G mentioned.

Some people can eat just about anything.
Besides stuff like pickled pig’s feet, my dad used to get cow tongue and tripe (stomach). He never was able to get any of us kids to eat that stuff.

BTW – talk about acquired tastes – I’m a big sushi fan as well, but I don’t ever want to try sea urchin again – that was horrible – but I know people who absolutely love it.

There will be plenty of people on the left who will miss him, even if they don’t say anything beyond their mask-falling moments when they’re ranting on Twitter and Facebook. They may not like the way ISIS and their Islamic brethren treat women and gays, but that’s more than balanced by the fact that ISIS is systematically slaughtering Christians, Jews, Kurds and other “troublesome” ethnic/religious groups.

And liberals figure that once ISIS has finished the job of ethnically cleansing the Middle East, they’ll be able to “reason” with ISIS and get them to see the error of their ways with regard to the whole women and gay thing. And they’ll never see the swords coming for their necks.

I’m afraid this idea will not work. Most Muslims’ hygiene or to be more accurate lack of hygiene, may counteract any other smell or they may not be able to notice it at all and it may make them actually smell better.

Anyone find out yet who ISIS’ military advisers are and what country they come from?

These barbarians and savages seem too savvy about military organization and tactics, and too militarily competent, to be mounting well planned and coordinated attacks and assaults all on their own.

Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen TV said more than 150 members of the Islamic State were killed in an ambush near the air base. Al-Manar, a network run by the Lebanese Hezbollah, which is a close ally of the Syrian government, gave a similar number.

The Raqqa Media Center, an activist collective, reported fierce clashes around the facility accompanied by government airstrikes. It said a prominent Islamic State media activist known as Abu Moussa, who appeared in a recent Vice News documentary about the group, was among those killed. It said that another media activist, Abu Abdullah al-Ansari, was also killed.

jaywemm on August 21, 2014 at 7:37 PM

A realist American strategy would be to support Assad form a Alawite homeland from a much reduced Syria. He fits all the criteria:

(1) He is ruthless.
(2) He is about as secular as you are going to get in the Islamic world.
(3) Is not for giving the Sunni population the vote (of course in a new Alawite homeland there will be no Sunnis to worry about).
(4) He has no other choice to fight Sunni Jihad…they will slaughter him and his Alawites, like the other minorities, if they lose.

Yet our FP is still stuck in the utopian Islamic democracy that will allow all to live as equals under Islamic law (LOL). A separate Alawite state, would be just like a separate Kurdish state (from parts of Iraq and Syria), and hopefully a free Christian state created from parts of Lebanon. The rest of what is Syria and all of Palestine can revert to the Jordanians. Of course Jordan will be reluctant to have those areas, but for the right price (American Money and Weapons, plus air support) they will be more willing to take it all into the new greater Jordan. They will also need a free hand to do what needs to be done to the more insane locals.

Since I don’t know where his grave is or will be, I have to pretend to spit on it, take a big fat crap on it and top it with a quart of pee.

But that, and knowing the pussbag is dead will have to be enough, at least until I can get my hand around the throats of a few isis thugs myself.

Diluculo on August 21, 2014 at 8:11 PM

As it will be. One at a time, ten at a time, a thousand at a time. We have no choice. This is a Crusade, this time, they are pushing against us. I think I counted something like 10 or more Crusades since the first one over a thousand years ago. However, this time we, the Christian West, made the mistake of allowing large numbers of them to settle- without a shot fired- within our borders. That may be our undoing in the long run.

However, watching this ISIS operate and calling themselves knights reminds me of the revisionist history liberal professor cite, saying that Christian knights were monsters because they killed entire villages.

Seeing what we see today, I wonder if they had seen the same back then and realized the only way to stop the jihadist was to kill them all.

“I don’t return home for pleasure,” Mosa told Vice’s cameras. “The family, honestly, is the least important thing. There is a higher purpose.”

“No one would defend Muslims if we all sat at home with the family,” he continued.

He will not be missed. At least, not in the West.

Sounds like he would have fit right in with Hamas.

There is no higher purpose than the family, which exists eternally. All other institutions, including churches, are support systems.

(And if you don’t like some of your family members, either both of you will be better people by the time you get to heaven, or you will live, so to speak, in different neighborhoods.)

AesopFan on August 21, 2014 at 8:45 PM

Assad was supposed to have been overthrown ages ago.

Figures that with the Russians supporting him, that is no where near happening. Bet he’s happy the U.S. wasn’t “helping” him. He would have been dragged down the street in his underwear bleeding to death long before now.
