ISIL lost around half of the territories it occupied since June 10, 2014. Since then till September 18, the day which preceded the first US-led coalition’s airstrikes, a number of political changes and battlefield developments occurred in Iraq.
ISIL’s image that was consecrated after the fall of Mosul as the “invincible monster” was altered by the army’s achievements.

Sectarianism, truly, is an aggressive, encroaching plague; large in scope, deep in reach and devastating in its overall effect, it contains the potential of metamorphosing into an all-consuming force. It was infamously utilized by the Rothschild-financed British Empire throughout all of its colonies as the most effective means of oppression; indeed, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei recently pointed out that the “wicked” regime in London is the “veteran expert of spreading divisions (1)”. Sectarianism was employed for decades by the usurping Zionist entity and the American regime to subdue and destabilize Iraq, beginning with the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, to the Mossad-CIA covert operations and death squads of the post-2003 invasion era (2), up until the Takfiri terrorists of the present day (3). The plague of sectarianism has also been used by the Jewish supremacist fanatics who created “Israel” from the very start of their Talmudic colonization project, all for the sake of driving a wedge between the indigenous Muslims and Christians of the Holy Land (4). But the most destructive form of sectarianism is that which comes from within, under the guise of “analysis” and “commentary”, especially during times as perilous and pivotal as these.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: There is a meme vomited incessantly within solidarity discourse that there is no link between World Jewry and the illegitimate “Israeli” regime and due to this, any mentioning of a transnational Jewish conspiracy is “anti-Semitic” as well as baseless. While there quite literally exists an overflow of information which counters this close-minded tomfoolery, the recent Resistance operation in Al-Quds which sent several infamous supremacist rabbis on a first-class trip to the fires of Jahannam quite possibly serves as the finest refutation of this puny solidarity theory, which, as usual, is meant to placate Jews who “support” the Palestinian cause and honor their sensitivities. The piece below documents the rich rabbinical history of Rabbi Mosheh Twersky, particularly his connections to Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik — a modern day Maimonides whose relentless, horrifying anti-Gentile writings are dissected at length in Judaism Discovered — but what it does not discuss, in typically deceptive Zionist Washington Post fashion, is the Twersky rabbinical dynasty’s political intrigues which are directly related to the genocidal destruction of Iraq. The Twersky rabbinical royal family, which wields massive influence from the United States to Britain, Canada to Belgium, New Jersey to the Jewish colony of Bnei Brak, the Orthodox Jewish capital of the Zionist entity, leads a powerful Hasidic sect known as the Skvere, and in 2004, the Skvere rabbis, in alliance with the equally powerful and hateful Chabad Hasidic sect, threw their weight behind George Bush’s reelection, giving the puppet of the Jewish neocon cabal pivotal support in New York. When asked why he was backing Bush, the vanquished colonizer Mosheh Twersky’s kin told the media in Hebrew that Bush was good for the Jews. Why? Because the Bush regime destroyed Iraq. With this noted, we must salute the courageous actions of PFLP martyrs Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal once more, as they did not just take revenge for Palestine with their Resistance operation, they took revenge for Iraq as well, masha’ALLAH, and in doing so, they exposed the undeniable familial, tribalist connection between the usurping Zionist entity and World Jewry for all the world to see. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Link Between Israel and World Jewry Exposed: Victims of synagogue attack include rabbi from ‘family of princes’
As talk in the US about the possibility of sending ground troops to Iraq increases, Baghdad has reiterated its opposition to the deployment of any ground forces from countries of the international coalition to take part in fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). This as the Iraqi Defense Ministry announced the start of a comprehensive strategy to retrain the Iraqi army. The announcement coincided with Iraqi forces seizing control of the Baiji oil refinery.
Iraqi defense minister, Khaled al-Obeidi, said: “The Iraqi government will not allow ground coalition forces to enter Iraq in order to participate in the war on terrorism.” Continue reading Iraq renews opposition to deployment of foreign troops as army makes progress against ISIS
There are increasing tangible signs that the US is considering a ground intervention in Iraq. Several developments on the battlefield led the US to accelerate its steps in this direction. The significance of these developments lies not so much in the nature of the military achievements themselves but in their repercussions on the geostrategic equation in the region.
One might say that what happened on the ground in the past few weeks in Iraq was not originally linked to strategic goals. In the end, as the fighters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) reached the outskirts of Baghdad, the Iraqi government and its allies did not have the luxury of long-term planning since it was necessary to stop the advance of the takfiris. Iraq’s top Shia cleric, Sayyed Ali al-Sistani, issued the “righteous jihad” religious edict. This led hundreds of thousands to volunteer in what came to be known as the “popular mobilization,” and a human dam made ISIS reach, what is known militarily as, the peak of its expansion. Continue reading Why is the US administration pushing for a ground intervention in Iraq?
(EDITOR’S NOTE: As an Iraqi, it brings me joy beyond measure that the Iraqi Popular Mobilization has broken the barrier of fear created by ISIS and liberated the strategic town of Jaref al-Sakher. This victory has exposed the evil intentions and ineptitude of the Zionist-occupied American regime, prevented any potential Takfiri assault on Baghdad and stopped any Takfiri infiltration into Najaf, Karbala, Kufa and Basra. I also am humbled, in a way that words cannot describe, that the young heroes of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization had the privilege and honor of fighting alongside Iranian Brigadier General Qassem Suleimani — the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard — who not only developed their battle plan but fought with them on the front line. Suleimani is one of the gems of the Ummah, masha’ALLAH wa ALLAH yehmi ya Rab; a man who has given his life, blood, heart and soul not only to his own nation, that of the Islamic Republic of Iran, but the Muslim nation as a whole, and freedom fighters in Lebanon, occupied Palestine and now my precious homeland of Iraq owe much to him. With all of this said however, we cannot in good conscience endorse the view of the piece below which suggests that the battle of Jaref al-Sakher, albeit important in its own right, somehow eclipses the momentousness of the battle for Al-Qusayr in the countryside of Syria’s Homs in May/June 2013. The liberation of Al-Qusayr, led by Hizbullah, changed the game in Syria; the liberation of Al-Qusayr ripped out the heart of the US-Zionist-NATO-GCC-fomented Takfiri rebellion, choked off its most vital supply line and started a chain reaction of Syrian-Arab-Army-Hizbullah-NDF victories — including the liberation of Homs in its entirety, Lattakia and the Qalamoun Mountains — that hasn’t stopped until this very moment. Whether the triumph in Jaref al-Sakher will have a similar domino effect remains to be seen but until then, overblowing it is not just insulting to Hizbullah and the Syrian Arab Army, but the Iraqi Popular Mobilization and the Iraqi army too, as they’re in for a long fight against the Empire-backed ISIS scourge and lowering their defenses along with developing a level of overconfidence would be detrimental to their struggle. The lesson to be learned here is that the Iraqis can be victorious, they can be ferocious, they can be Husseini, and they can be great, just as Commander Suleimani trained them to be. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Iraqis prove that ISIS is a paper tiger

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s personal website has republished an article by Kayhan newspaper that responded to reports about US President Barack Obama’s letter offering Iran cooperation against the Islamic State (IS) if a nuclear deal is signed by Nov. 24. Though the newspaper does not always specifically reflect Ayatollah Khamenei’s views, the fact that this article was republished on his website is a rare endorsement of some of the views expressed in the article.
Obama’s letter, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, initially received straightforward coverage from Iranian news agencies and brief mentions on Iranian TV. In recent days, there has been more coverage, especially the foreign media reacting to the letter. Continue reading Newspaper close to Iran Supreme leader reacts to Obama’s letter
