TomoNews: ISIS Bombers Fall Out, Blow Each Other Up

December 29, 2015

More brutality and stupidity from ISIS, as reported by TomoNews. A couple of would-be suicide bombers accidentally blew themselves up in Sargodha, Pakistan. The two were reported to have been sitting in the street, talking, when they started arguing. The argument turned violent, and in the ensuing scrap, one of them triggered the other’s suicide belt, blowing them both to Jahinnam (hell). The pair were identified, and Pakistan’s finest went round to their homes to arrest further suspects.

Fortunately, the only people these prats killed were each other. And they got exactly what they deserved.

Tomonews: ISIS Suicide Bomber Cries before Attack on Syrian Town

December 28, 2015

This is a grim little video from TomoNews, the news channel that produced such entertaining features as a computer-generated, rampaging Gordon Brown, and ISIS recruits kicking each other in the testicles in Pakistan, and ISIS and al-Qaeda scrapping and hitting each other like the Three Stooges in a competition over which one was the hardest and most brutal. This video is a grim little report showing a prospective suicide crying, and having to be comforted by his fellow murderers. He was apparently afraid his attack would fail. They tell him to have faith in Allah. So off he tries in his crawler, and blows himself up shortly after.

I’m reblogging this for several reasons. Firstly, it dispels the myth ISIS are trying to put out about themselves, that they are utterly unstoppable killers without any human feelings whatsoever. That’s what they’re saying to scare their enemies, which is now just about everybody else in the world. As this clip shows, they still feel fear, a fear that can reduce even the most determined butcher bent on his own destruction and those of others to tears.

That demonstration of a perfectly reasonable, human emotion, albeit perverted to serve ISIS’ ends – he was crying because he was afraid his mission would fail, rather than at the brutalities and horrors he and his loathsome comrades have already committed, also show something deeper: the artificiality and squalor of the terrorists’ suicide training itself.

The American anthropologist, Scott Atran, has pointed out that religious faith alone does not provide sufficient motivation for people to become suicide bombers. Instead, murderous groups like ISIS carefully cultivate and indoctrinate their prospective suicide bombers. Part of this involves separating them from the rest of the fighters, and developing a special group bond within them. It’s fair to say that they’re brainwashed into doing so.

And I’ve mentioned before the moral squalor of the authorities that carry out such brainwashing, whether in ISIS or not. I know Muslims from the Middle East, who despised Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, not least because of the way he encouraged young boys to serve as suicide bombers in the Iran/Iraq War in the 1980s. He handed out to them mass-produced, cheap keys, telling them that they were the keys to the kingdom of heaven. ISIS does pretty much something similar.

And remember what Owen Jones said in the video I reblogged yesterday about the Paris attacks. The people drawn to ISIS aren’t paragons of virtue. They’re a bunch of sad acts and losers, thieves and criminals. Many of them have also suffered from depression, which shows that ISIS also exploits the mentally vulnerable.

The more you see ISIS, the less invincible and impressive they seem. At their core, they’re just pathetic bullies, trying to scare their world with their brutalities into believing their something greater than they are.

ISIS Training Methods: Kick Your Recruits in the Nads

December 11, 2015

Last weekend or so, I reblogged a video I found on A Site Best Not Mentioned, which showed ISIS and al-Qaeda blowing each other up in full, computer-generated colour and mayhem. This is another news report which makes you wonder about the weird, weird world the Islamists inhabit. In this video, TomoNews report on an ISIS training video from Pakistan, which shows the crazed ghazis kicking each other in the crown jewels. I supposed it’s to toughen them up, but, why? I mean, Why? The more I see of them, the less like true religious warriors for truth they seem. More like South Park’s take on the Three Stooges, when they replaced them with three serial killers, one of whom was Jeffrey Dahmer.

All I can think of is that ISIS bases its training manual on the 1990s Japanese game show, Endurance. That show had their contestants going all they way round the world, and being tortured in bizarrely different ways in each country. In Spain they were dangled off a fortress wall why stone balls were catapulted upwards to hit them on their rears.

Here’s a reminder of just how weird and sadistic the show was, from Tarrant on TV.

Endurance has since gone the way of all TV shows that have gone as far as they can. But its legacy lives on with ISIS training videos.
