Islamic Extremists Are Stepping Up Their Recruiting Efforts

Extremists are leveraging recent military gains in Iraq and Syria to seek new recruits from Western countries and elsewhere, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria last week used social media to launch its first English-language enlistment campaign, the newspaper reported on Wednesday. In footage that the group distributed over its first Twitter accounts maintained in English, German and Russian, armed men implore viewers to join their rapidly spreading Middle Eastern offensive.

According to personnel in Western and Arab nations, the jihadist group’s military momentum has helped to build its reputation among potential overseas recruits. Officials in the United States and Europe have aired fears that the regional battlefield could provide Westerners with training and ideological preparation to carry out strikes after returning home.

“The recent developments have raised hopes of jihadists all over the world to establish the state they’ve aspired to create for a long time,” one Egyptian envoy told the Journal. “We worry that more Egyptians are going to Syria and Iraq now, particularly from [the Sinai Peninsula].”

According to a physician in Mosul, Iraq, soldiers from a variety of European and Middle Eastern nations now belong to the militant group that took over his city earlier this month.

Meanwhile, locals in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa reported arrivals of ISIS recruits from North Africa and Asia. The city appears to have emerged as the organization’s command center, the Journal quoted government sources as saying.

“New foreign fighters are coming in and some of them are bringing their families with them. They occupied all the hotels in Raqqa and they inhabit al-Thukna, the most beautiful neighborhood in the city,” said one person in Raqqa. “ISIS is calling on Raqqa’s people to open their empty houses for the immigrants.”

My American heritage is from South America. I'm familiar with Narco Nations, and I was aware of the fact that Iran paid for Chavez' Presidency. Chavez went on to turn Venezuela into the biggest Drug Distributor in the World. I want to share issues that I consider truth, in a world of deception.

I sense the US is currently a Narco Nation. (A nation who's government is beholden to the all powerful cartels.)

Samuel Hersch, famed author, did a good job of connecting the dots of Obama's illegal use of the US military to go to war in Lybia, Syria, and Pakistan, in his book.

The Red Line and the Rat Line.

Obama's Illegal Use of US Military A True Concern "The real Obama scandal: fighting illegal wars in Libya and Pakistan The AP, IRS and Benghazi controversies are political sideshows. Obama's use of illegal force abroad is true concern" The Guardian 2013.

Carter Deja Vu

Barack Obama, George Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski are behind the fall of Egypt and the coming Islamic Revolution "Obama and the Shadow Socialist Group Behind Egypt’s Fall made it possible for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over. For those of you who don’t know, Brzezinski is the same man who supervised the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979 under Jimmy Carter."

According to Buried Documents, the Muslim Brotherhood has been in the US since at least 1991.

Those documents reveal their Islamic Revolution plans for the US.

The ridiculously wealthy UAE (Qatar) also seem to be carrying the torch for ensuring an Islamic world under Sharia Law.

State Department Reports Hezbollah Increasing Drug and Terrorist in South America 2013

Nisman's report said Iran's intelligence activities in Latin America are being conducted directly by Iranian officials or through a key surrogate, the Hezbollah Islamic militant group. "Criminal plans" by Iran could be under way in Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, the report said. "They are more involved in the cocaine trade than ever before, and have greater access in the region due their allies in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and elsewhere," Farah said. "So they have more freedom of movement and fewer restrictions. This has greatly increased their capacity to carry out intelligence operations, train and position operatives and prepare attacks, particularly if Israel or the U.S. strikes Iran's nuclear facilities." CNN 2013

Local reports of epidemic heroin abuse across the nation, are mostly ignored by mainstream media. "Once rare, heroin use on the rise" More people seek help; police seeing more on street -2014 “The evidence seems to indicate that the Justice Department not only allowed criminals to smuggle weapons, but that tax payers’ dollars in the form of informant payments, may have financed those engaging in such activities,” the pleading added.

CONFIRMED: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico's Most Notorious Drug Cartel (They claimed feds agreed they could traffic into Chicago)

"The link between drugs and crime, including violent crime, would be hard to overstate in Chicago. Eighty-six percent of adult males arrested in Chicago last year tested positive for drug use. Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million, had 506 murders in 2012, the highest per capita among the four most populous U.S. cities."

Drug legalization was never about personal liberties. It was about acceptance of drugs. Drugs provided by the cartels, and ease of laundering money by banks.

What America isn’t understanding is that Drug Legalization is social engineering at it’s finest. Those who laundered money for the cartels, have been pushing drug legalization, including heroin since the 90’s.

The Hidden Soros Agenda: Drugs, Money, the Media, and Political Power-2004

"The report, which was commissioned by SIGAR, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction makes grim reading, with opium poppy cultivation increasing by over a third, while the country now has about 1.3 million heroin users. This is a ten-fold increase compared to 2005, when around 130,000 people were using the drug."

"Afghanistan is responsible for about three-quarters of the world’s heroin production, with much of it being cultivated in the Helmand and Kandahar provinces in the south of the country. However, the US has concentrated most of its efforts in the east of Afghanistan, which has relatively little poppy production, as it is safer than working in the south."

"The link between drugs and crime, including violent crime, would be hard to overstate in Chicago. Eighty-six percent of adult males arrested in Chicago last year tested positive for drug use. Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million, had 506 murders in 2012, the highest per capita among the four most populous U.S. cities."

Heroin Pushed into Chicago

$Billions in influence cartel influence peddling, and lobbying, is what has led people to believe that the war on drugs was useless. If you dont believe these ruthless sociopaths are going after your children, think again.

This level of trafficking would not happen without government complicity. Heroin isn't grown here, and it is cheaper and easier for kids to get than beer.
