ISIS Commander To America: “Soon We Will Be In Direct Confrontation, And The Sons Of Islam Have Prepared For Such A Day”

They may have prepared for a day of “direct confrontation” with America, but another Day of Direct Confrontation is coming that no amount of planning will ever prepare them for …

Revelation 6:12-17, “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth … And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?'”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘The sons of Islam have prepared for such a day’? Surely, if there was ever a time when our sterling moderate Muslim leaders — Faisal Abdul Rauf, Ibrahim Hooper, Nihad Awad, Reza Aslan, Ahmed Rehab, Salam al-Marayati and all the rest of them — to straighten out the many among their coreligionists who misunderstand their peaceful, tolerant religion, it is now. Surely they must be on their way to Mosul now, where they can get a meeting with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has a doctorate in Islamic studies from Baghdad University — and explain to him how he is getting Islam all wrong, wrong, wrong.

‘ISIS Leader to USA: ‘Soon We Will be in Direct Confrontation,’’ by Terence P. Jeffrey, CNSNews.com, June 13, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

(CNSNews.com) – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), issued a rare audio message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his group’s intention to march on Baghdad and move into “direct confrontation” with the United States.

“Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,” Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

When the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing on February 5 on al Qaida’s resurgence in Iraq, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iran and Iraq Brett McGurk presented written testimony explaining the agenda of ISIS (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL), and discussed Baghdadi’s audio message to Americans.

ISIL, McGurk said, focuses on “an aim to carve out an Islamic caliphate stretching from Baghdad to Lebanon.”

“ISIL has also made its intentions clear: move from a new base of operations in Fallujah to Baghdad–a distance of under 30 miles,” McGurk said in his written testimony. “Its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had this to say in a rare audio statement issued on January 21: ‘As for ISIS in Iraq: Be in the frontlines against the Shia, and march toward Baghdad and the South, keep the Shia busy in their own areas. Know that the entire Sunni population and the brothers in Syria are watching you.’”

McGurk then noted that Baghdadi went on to conclude his audio statement by issuing a direct threat to the United States. Specifically, Baghdadi said: “Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day. So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

“We take such threats seriously and through cooperation with this committee and the Congress, we intend to help the Iraqis in their efforts to defeat ISIL over long term,” McGurk told the committee in his spoken testimony.

The day before McGurk appeared in the Foreign Affairs Committee, CIA Director John Brennan testified at the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s annual hearing on “Worldwide Threats.” Discussing Jabhat al Nusra, which is the al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, and ISIL, Brennan warned that al Qaeda may develop the capability to “use Syria as a launching pad” for attacks on the West, and that al Qaeda already had training camps both in Syria and Iraq where it was developing capabilities that could threaten the West.

“There are three groups of people [operating in Eastern Syria] that are a concern, from an extremist standpoint; Ahrar Asham, Jabhat al-Nusra, which is the Al Qaida element within Syria, and the Islamic state of Iraq and Levant,” said Brennan. “It’s those latter two I think are most dedicated to a terrorist agenda.

“We are concerned about the use of Syrian territory by the Al Qaida organization to recruit individuals and develop the capability to be able not just to carry out attacks inside of Syria, but also to use Syria as a launching pad,” he said.

“So it’s those elements–Al Qaida and ISIL–that I’m concerned about, and especially the ability of these groups to attract individuals from other countries, both from the West, as well as throughout the Middle East and South Asia, and with some experienced operatives there who have had experience in carrying out a global Jihad,” Brennan continued.

“There are camps inside of both Iraq and Syria that are used by Al Qaida to develop capabilities that are applicable, both in the theater, as well as beyond,” the CIA director testified.

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers asked Brennan: “Do you believe that that ungoverned space presents a real threat to the United States of America, via al Qaida operations, or the West?

“I do,” said Brennan.

On Feb. 2, al Qaeda had issued a statement on inline disassociating itself from ISIL, which had tried to take over al Nusra Front, which al Qaeda had designated as its official affiliate in Syria. In his Feb. 5 testimony, McGurk discussed this break between al Qaeda and ISIL.

“ISIL and al Nusra were both kind of came out of Al Qaida in Iraq,” said McGurk. “ISIL, basically, is al Qaida in Iraq. It’s leader was the al Qaida and Iraq leader since 2010. Nusra was a bit of an offshoot and is focused more on Syria. As you said, there’s now this message, which seems from [al Qaida leader] Zawahiri, saying that ISIL is no longer affiliated with Al Qaida central.”

    Muslims in character are not like Jesus. Who then are they like? None other than Satan. Can’t Muslims see that they are controlled by Lucifer? The one who made life is in the Muslims? God is the God of life not death. Muslims are following he that wants death. That is not God. Satan is external beauty only. Religions lied. That is why people have the wrong idea about what he looks like. In spirit he is in our body that dies. The unseen light of Jesus in us keeps him out of the soul. Ezekiel 28:13:Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
    2 Corinthians 11:14:And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. He will if he dares will stand on earth saying he is God being the abomination of desolation standing on the earth where he ought not to stand.

    The kingdom that was and is not now ( at 33 AD) and is to come( bible prophecy)

    It will be the return of the Egyptian dynasty under the new world order in the present form
    Watch all the symbols around the globe, lotus, phoenix, Isis pyramid, eye,
    all of these symbols

    You will see this all over the world. Not just the Middle east

    Muslims seek the world. Satan seeks the world. See a parallel here Muslims? Satan is your guide. Save yourselves by stopping what you are doing.

    I have little doubt that they are just champing at the bit, waiting for the right moment to strike. We are after all the “great Satan!” With their ever so loyal, brother in jihad, Barack Obama at the gate, an all out, devastating attack, should not be too difficult to accomplish. After all, Obama has all of our weapons and our military at Islams disposal.

    There are times when Obama is unable to conceal his delight at America’s downfall. Like his smile when Bergdahl’s father sounded Allah’s war cry from the Rose Garden.

      The people with a single eye for the world are the Muslims. They think others are the cyclops but the Muslims themselves are exactly that. They are fulfilling prophesy. They can change prophecy, but it will take mental effort on their part to resist the impulse to harm others.

    I believe that they are staging their mosque to use as power take over. if you review their mapped locations, most are along or border state and cover so much area. I have read a few different maps that did not include state such as California, but they have mosque. I believe that they want to build big mosque to hold lots of terrorist before a battle. I also believe that they can guns into those mosque without detection.

      Those mosques must be eliminated. If the government goes after anyone it should be them. Muslims see people other than a Muslim as a dog, Goat or any animal fit for slaughter and a one eyed beast they call Satan. They must change getting rid of their mosques themselves or be pushed out of any habitable land.
