ISIS Wants a Global Civil War - The Daily Beast
LONDON — Did anyone at the Democratic National Convention notice the slaughter of 86-year-old Father Jacques Hamel, as jihadists slit his throat in his own church in Northern France during morning Mass? Well… here’s why they’d better start paying attention.

For our own future’s sake, we must understand what jihadists are seeking to achieve through sowing the seeds of such chaos. What possible military strategy could there be in mowing 84 innocent people down to death using a lorry in Nice? How is “the cause” at all served by murdering 325 mainly Shia Muslims in Baghdad? Or by killing 80 mainly Shia Hazara Muslims in Kabul?

In fact, since the start of Ramadan last month, and till the time of writing on July 27, 2016, there have been 75 attacks in 50 days by various jihadist groups globally. This amounts to attacks in 21 countries at a rate of one-and-a-half per day, leaving over 1,169 dead, not including the injured and maimed. The 21 countries and territories attacked have been Jordan, Iraq, Bangladesh, Syria, Israel, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Libya, France, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Malaysia, Turkey, Mali, Palestine, Cameroon, Saudi, Thailand, and Germany. Sixteen of those are Muslim-Majority territories.

People try to help an injured person, after gunmen stormed the Holey Artisan restaurant and took hostages in Dhaka, Bangladesh July 1, 2016.


Yes, these attacks were organized by disparate jihadist groups—all professing the same ideology—and many of them have a distinct command and control structure. But sowing the seeds of indiscriminate chaos among their enemy is a tactic modern jihadist groups now all share. So what could they possibly be hoping to achieve? Sadly, there is jihadist method to this madness. ISIS adopted playbook Idarat al-Tawahhush, or the Management of Savagery, elaborates.
The so-called Islamic State, widely known as ISIS, seeks not to spark a World War, but to ignite a World Civil War.

This book on jihadist war theory first appeared online around 2004 and was attributed to an ideologue who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Bakr al-Naji. Naji instructed followers to incite ethnic, sectarian, and religious hatred throughout the world so that societies end up dividing along mutual mistrust and a desire for revenge. Naji’s hope was that Sunni Muslims would then largely be blamed—as they now are—as the cause of this intolerance and violence, rendering them hated and left isolated. Naji even highlights the importance of provoking heavy state military responses against Sunni Muslims everywhere, so that entire populations of Sunnis feel suspected and attacked by everyone else around them, and turn in on themselves. The idea is that through such division Sunnis would find no refuge from angry non-Muslims and over-reacting states, except in jihadists who would embrace them. In turn, Sunnis would end up swelling the ranks of jihadists’ militias as they began to protect themselves against reprisal attacks.


Behold, a world divided along sectarian religious lines, the ideal conditions for a “caliphate.”
The US leadership had better get a clue about their enemy. Know your enemy!

Exactly what the left does in this country. Divide. Interesting the left and Islamic terrorists use the same tactics.

Nahhh, US gun owners are the real threat didn't you hear a word Hillary said? She didn't even mention Islamic Terrorist so how could that be a threat?


Bitter clingers, to be specific. :)

Leftists think conservatives and other non-leftist people are a bigger threat than Islamic terrorists.

Tactics used throughout history. Problem is that the Left doesn't really understand the nature of the US's external enemies. It's not on their social radar, and therefore a nuisance.

Because you're totally not doing that right here by demonizing millions of people with a huge variety of different ideologies based on some made up fantasy in your mind. :roll:

Why does it never occur to you that you're buying right into it?

Yes, they want to ignite a world wide war. I'm not sure just how the term "civil war" applies here, but they want a war between Islam and the rest of the world in order to prepare the way for their "Twelfth Imam" who will establish a world wide caliphate.

We have people in this country who play right into their hands by blaming the terrorist attacks on all Muslims rather than just on the Jihadis.

Their brand of Islam - most of their "victims" are also Muslim.

Exactly.

Since there are only a few thousand of them, it does make one wonder just how they think they'll prevail over seven billion human beings.

They must think their Twelfth Imam will take care of that little detail.

Dying for that "holy cause" is the ultimate reward - in the mean time, to the victor (no matter how briefly) go the spoils. We have morons in this country that will die (and kill others) for a street gang - go figure.

There is the all Muslim again. No one is saying that. Jihadists have a huge support system. While it is NOT ALL Muslims, it is many more than anyone wants you to know.

Also ISIS are not Twelvers. Those are the guys running Iran. Do some research. Don't just come here and blame people who recognize the seriousness of the threat with worn out excuses and accusations.

Well, to be fair, non-leftist people are a bigger threat than Islamic terrorists, to the left's ideology and agenda anyway.

The made up fantasy is religion and the Jihadist are doing what the Koran tells them is commanded by their made up "God".

They may be only thousands of the 1.6B but they are the ones that are actually obeying the commandments of their "God". The rest are not true believers.

Yes, however when the safety and security of the nation is at stake, and that ought to be the number one goal here, the left isn't interested in working together to see that it is accomplished. They are more interested in creating chaos, dividing the nation, and giving aid and comfort to the nation's external enemies.

See, when it comes to the left, the nation is not at the top of the list. The party is. And that's wrong.

I believe the numbers are much, much higher than "thousands." Millions perhaps.

Or the governments that allow them safe haven - some even call those governments our allies (like Pakistan) that just need more of our aid $.

Ironically these are people claiming that Islam doesn't teach terrorism, but that is non-sense it is a religion of terrorism written about a prophet that was a child molester and a terrorist.

The text specifically commends followers to kill infidels, the fact that not every one of the 1.6B are not terrorists just means the vast majority don't obey in the commands of Allah.

They will not be rewarded in the after life.

It would be nice if the rest of the world could put a up a wall around these trouble makers, and let themselves bleed each other out until there's peace.

However, that's not how it's working out. These radical militant Islamic groups are exporting their terrorism and violence to the West.

Another more effective solution needs to be found. Perhaps 'helping them along' in their blood letting?
Seems the only other choice is to allow the innocent Western citizens to continue to be subjected to the violence, murder, rape, maiming, from these radical militant Islamic groups.

Each of these would come with its own moral dilemma.

You are supposedly against divisive language. Yet here you are being divisive about half of America, painting them as some kind of evil villain. You sure do have a short line of sight, don't you.

Only with a perverted view of Islam, yes. Not mainstream Islam. Meanwhile, there are those who are talking about a "clash of civilizations." This is not a war between Christianity and Islam.
