    Threats of a new flag for the White House


    Posted today by Lisa Fogarty, Abu Mosa, has been reportedly killed, though there is no death confirmation and no evidence to support the claim. As the ISIS spokesperson Mosa had gone into battle to various outposts in various YouTube videos where he was also interviewed saying, “I say to America the Islamic Caliphate has been established and we will not stop. Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” There isn’t a stop in the foreseeable future for this group.
    The rumor is that it was the Syrian Army who had done the killing, though these reports are unconfirmed as well as floating on Twitter. The ide ais that he died as a martyr in Raqqa and this could either be the case, that he really was killed in a missile clash, or it could just be as easily taken as hearsay and he is still at large. The Caliphate zone has been growing and the rate at which Western Iraq was taken has shocked the world. Various outposts and highways are being taken over and blocked and violence rains upon these cities to where fear is commonplace. Heads of enemy regime soldiers have been placed on fences as a warning and declaration that specific zones are under IS control.
    The highways are not being taken by only IS militants, however. The documentary by Vice News also shows Mosa driving with two others on a road on which they were forced in their truck due to these blockades from both sides. They were driving directly into the direction of a posted sniper but showed no hesitation, nor fear, as they spoke of their god’s willingness to keep them alive. A god that is sworn to as a singularly true god is one driving force for these militant actions. There is a flag for every country, but is there a flag for every god? Mosa wanted to post the Allah, or “god,” flag in the White House.
    Mosa explains, while sporting his RayBans that family is the least important thing; that he only returns to his home if he is sick or there is trouble. He lives for war, yet claims that the battle to win hearts and minds is a job he takes very seriously. He claims that no one would protect Muslims if people stayed at home, but that goes against the grain on what creates a war in the first place. If everyone stayed home there wouldn’t exactly be a place for war. This is of course saying that you can leave the house, but making an effort to not pick up a gun would be a step in the right direction. One can ponder where hearts and minds can be won without the emphasis on family, though it’s evident that the ISIS way of thinking isn’t that of most readers here. This is always underlined each time a child is asked what he wants to do when he grows up and says he wants to be a jihadist, or what the definition of infidel is and why they should be hunted. “Because they kill Muslims,” a boy replied after being asked this very question.
    It wouldn’t be a hard task to have a negative outlook on all of Western Europe and the United States when ISIS places fun on the scale of moving away from god. One of the crew members for the Vice media stated that with vacations and having a happy life, comes the separation from god. He would prefer a hardship his entire life. “The harder the situation is, the closer we are to god.” It wouldn’t be difficult to postulate that a peace loving god is out of the question. Regardless, with Mosa being presumed dead, it raises a lot of questions of what might come next. There’s no doubt the ISIS movement will do it’s best to continue, regardless of cost, family loss, struggle and pain. Being that there are ISIS supporters from all around the world, London, Belgium, etc, it’s hard to see when the end will come. Hopefully it’s littered less with heads and more with words, but is it too late?
