A Kingdom Divided: Al-Qaeda Terror Group Orders Members To Kill Rival Al-Qaeda Group Members

So much for being merciful to one another. That verse of the Qur’an must have been abrogated, too. Division. Dysfunction. Destruction. Where would Islam be without it? …

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

Al Arabiya – “Al-Qaeda group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) on Tuesday urged its fighters to ‘crush’ other rebel groups in Syria, in an audio message from the group’s spokesman.

Abu Mohammad al-Adnani called on ISIL fighters in Syria to ‘crush them (the rebels) totally and kill the conspiracy at birth,’ warning opposition fighters that ‘none of you will remain, and we will make of you an example to all those who think of following the same path,’ AFP reported.

ISIL’s threat came hours after a rival al-Qaeda group said it has joined forces with other rebel groups in fighting ISIL.

Al-Nusra Front leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani said in an audio recording that ‘high-level’ fighting erupted between his group and ISIL on Tuesday.

He blamed the fighting on what he said were ‘mistakes’ made by ISIL, such as the arrest of a Nusra commander in Raqqa.

In his message, Golani urged all rebel groups to unite against President Bashar al-Assad regime.

‘This unfortunate situation prompted us to make this initiative to save the ground from loss. This initiative calls for the formation of a legitimate committee from all recognized factions with an independent leadership,’ he said.

Golani also noted that all infighting in the groups must end and an exchange of prisoners should take place, adding that rebels should focus their efforts on fighting Assad’s forces and not fighting each other.

Divisions within al-Qaeda

Divisions within al-Qaeda appeared in November 2013, when al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri appointed al-Nusra Front jihadists to carry the network’s banner in Syria and ordered the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant to disband.

Zawahiri’s remarks confirmed a written order issued in June that has so far gone unheeded.

Zawahiri said that al-Nusra Front was the jihadist group’s only branch in Syria, tasked with reporting ‘to the general command,’ and will no longer operate under the banner of al-Qaeda’s Iraq affiliate.

‘The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is to be abolished, while the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) remains functioning,’ he said.” Read more.

Syria: Al Qaida Kills 50 Prisoners At Aleppo Hospital – “The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights quoted local medical sources as saying that over 30 al Qaida militants died over the past few hours in the north-western region of Idlib in clashes between al Qaida fighters and local rebels. The dead militants are all reportedly non-Syrian members of ISIS. Al Qaida militants have executed overnight 50 Syrian activists they had detained in Aleppo, activists in the northern Syrian city told ANSA on Tuesday in a Skype interview. The prisoners were killed at a former eye hospital in Aleppo, the activists said. The sources said the executions were carried out by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al Qaida-linked militant group in Syria which has been attacked by local insurgents over the past few days.” Read more.

    That would be like Baptists killing Lutherans. Doesn’t happen. Islam is evil. Plain and simple.
