can be completely destructive when that 1% decides to start killing for their satanic god. Are you watching and perhaps learning from what is happening in Iraq, dear stupid governments of the West? No, of course not. Our idiots walking the halls of power will import even more of these radicals so their numbers can grow to well above 10% in the next few years.

.....How an arrest in Iraq revealed Isis's $2bn jihadist network
Seizure of 160 computer flash sticks revealed the inside story of Isis, the band of militants that came from nowhere with nothing to having Syrian oil fields and control of Iraq's second city.
Two days before Mosul fell to the Islamic insurgent group Isis (the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), Iraqi commanders stood eyeballing its most trusted messenger. The man, known within the extremist group as Abu Hajjar, had finally cracked after a fortnight of interrogation and given up the head of Isis's military council.
"He said to us, 'you don't realise what you have done'," an intelligence official recalled. "Then he said: 'Mosul will be an inferno this week'.'
Several hours later, the man he had served as a courier and been attempting to protect, Abdulrahman al-Bilawi, lay dead in his hideout near Mosul. From the home of the dead man and the captive, Iraqi forces hoovered up more than 160 computer flash sticks which contained the most detailed information yet known about the terror group.
The treasure trove included names and noms de guerre of all foreign fighters, senior leaders and their code words, initials of sources inside ministries and full accounts of the group's finances.
"We were all amazed and so were the Americans," a senior intelligence official told the Guardian. "None of us had known most of this information."........

....Sunni militants say they have seized a strategically important border crossing and two towns along the Euphrates river in continued fighting in Iraq.
Officials admitted that the militants had seized the border crossing to Syria near the town of Qaim, killing 30 troops after a day-long battle.
Rebels also said they had taken the towns of Rawa and Aneh.
Correspondents say a campaign along the river may eventually lead to an assault on Baghdad from the west.
The capture of the Qaim crossing in western Iraq could help Isis transport weapons and other equipment to different battlefields, analysts say.
Sunni extremists have seized control of large areas of territory across Iraq in recent days.....
