ISIS has found another radical-Islamic Brit willing to butcher innocent hostages:
Mohammed Reza Haque, 36, is depicted in the video using a serrated hunting knife to cut off a prisoner’s head in the middle of a barren desert.
The vile killer was likened to extremist Mohamed Emwazi – dubbed ‘Jihadi John’ – who beheaded five western hostages on video, after murdering his victim in an almost-identical fashion.
Emwazi was known as “Jihadi John,” ISIS’ most infamous executioner. Before he was finally taken out by an American drone, Emwazi slaughtered at least five prisoners: David Haines and Alan Henning from Britain, and Americans James Foley, Peter Kassig and Steven Sotloff. Although it was a great day for humankind when Emwazi was finally killed, he’s now been succeeded by another radical Muslim from Britain: Mohammed Reza Haque.
Haque was radicalized many years ago. From 2011 onwards, Haque was a bodyguard of Anjem Choudary, perhaps Britain’s most infamous radical-Islamic preacher. Choudary was imprisoned in September for inciting support for ISIS.
On Remembrance Sunday in Britain back in 2011, Haque could be seen burning poppies near the Royal Albert Hall in London. When the crowd observed a two-minute silence for British soldiers fallen in war, Haque and his radical friends chanted, “Burn British soldiers; burn in hell.”
FOUR WAYS TO DEFEAT YOUR ENEMY
(1) Understanding Your Enemy: This requires intel so that we can know what kind of enemy we’re dealing with, i.e., special forces ground troops at a bare minimum. We need to learn more about how ISIS works before we can learn how to defeat them. This enemy is tough because he will strike us in our safe places, and it is happening far more often, leaving the world gripped in terror. This enemy is threatening our ability to get through daily life. This enemy has a religious apocalyptic mindset, which is the most dangerous of all because death in battle is actually viewed as a good thing. The unknown is what is scary because this enemy can be at our workplace, at our school, at our places of recreation, and in some of our homes. The threat is everywhere.
(2) Keep Your Enemy Close: We are trying to fight an enemy thousands of miles away. Huge numbers of Special Forces need to carry out guerrilla warfare.
(3) Observe Your Enemy: Analyzing the way ISIS and Al Qaeda has infiltrated our way of life can enable us to undermine them and defeat them. The liberal progressive notion of not naming your enemy creates two problems: (a) we cannot fully understand an enemy we fail to name, (b) we create an environment where people are afraid to speak out for fear of being called an Islamophobe. When the naive, liberal, progressive, socialist screams Islamophobia at every turn, they create this environment and actually blame the victim for the actions of the terrorist. Imagine if a conservative said of a young girl who has been raped that it was her fault for dressing the way she did or going out with them type of people.
(4) Find Your Enemy’s Weaknesses: Every enemy has weaknesses regardless of how imposing they may seem. However, if we cannot find those weaknesses, it will be impossible to eradicate them. ISIS and Al Qaeda have the weakness of having radical religious views and excessive pride, which brag and boast of how they are defeating the great world power that the world has ever known. Thus, their videos make it seem like Allah is helping them, how else could a few hundred thousand people spread out through many countries defeat the United States of America and the Western world, as well as the nation of Israel. Therefore, if Special Forces joined from several countries and went on a campaign of guerrilla warfare, coupled with severely increased drone strikes, all caught on film; it would show that they did not have Allah’s backing. Being put in a position of embarrassment will be devastating to ISIS and Al Qaeda, as they will not be able to continue recruiting through their propaganda.
