The Islamic State’s Al-Furqan Media, the terrorist group’s propaganda outlet, has broadcast a video purporting to show the execution of an alleged “Mossad spy.” A clip of the video, posted on Twitter, ends with the threat: “We are looking towards Jerusalem.”

Activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, an anti-ISIS group, had previously warned on Twitter that Al-Furqan media would broadcast the video following up from an interview with the captured 19-year old Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, an Israeli-Arab, that appeared in their latest edition of Dabiq Magazine, Issue No. 7.

The execution footage shows Musallam sitting in a room wearing an orange jumpsuit, talking about his recruitment by Israeli intelligence, and how his father and brother had encouraged him to join. After that, it shows Musallam being escorted to an open field and being executed by a young boy.

The boy, wearing a military uniform stands before Musallam, and shoots him in the head after shouting “Allahu Akbar!”

Another ISIS militant delivers a threatening message to Jews. “Allah granted us the grace to murder Jews on their lands in France.”

The UK’s Daily Mail reported that Musallam was captured by ISIS in Syria after traveling to the country sometime in November. His parents claim he left home to join ISIS, but the group claims he is an Israeli spy that was recruited by a Jewish neighbor in Israel.

Musallam is a native of the eastern parts of Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

In the prior interview which he gave to Dabiq, Musallam said that he was recruited by Mossad to join ISIS in order to report to the Israelis on its weapons caches, bases, and Palestinian recruitment efforts.

He added that despite his extensive training by the Mossad, he did not act like a typical muhajer, a term ISIS uses for foreigners who move to the territory held by the terrorist group. His odd behavior led to his discovery, and he said in his Dabiq interview that, “I say to all those who want to spy on the Islamic State, don’t think that you’re so smart and that you can deceive the Islamic State. You won’t succeed at all.”

His father has denied that Musallam was an Israeli spy, saying that he left Israel out of conviction in ISIS’ mission and that he wanted to join the terrorist group. His father told Haaretz, “He is not a spy, he went over on his own – [ISIS] recruited him on the internet…he is not connected with the Mossad, the Shin Bet security services or anyone else.”

One Israeli official echoed Musallam’s father, saying that the young man traveled to Turkey on October 24 to fight for ISIS in Syria. “He went on his own initiative, without his family’s knowledge,” the official said, adding that his statement could be understood as a denial that Musallam was an Israeli spy.

    Has the New York Times trotted this out as ‘proof’ that all Israelis are evil yet? They will.

    Concerning the Antichristian killer suicidal psychopathic devil-possesed maniacs known as Islamic terrorists of ISIS and Boko Haram… these mad dogs from hell should just drink their own Diarrhea Law and let the rest of the world live in peace.

    Degenerate pathological knuckle draggers attempting to reverse enlightenment and return humanity to the dark ages. Reincarnated Nazi’s and cockroaches, these putrid Muslim beasts are destined to spend eternity burning in the fires of hell for their inhumanity and sins against G-d.

    Surface reading Quran, Sura and Hadith makes plain jealous hatred defines Islam, cruelty to friend and foe is normal, intolerance of all not in 100% lockstep is a capital crime and sexual perversions are its greatest pleasures.

    Dormant 90 years, Obama unleashed the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic State on the world within weeks of taking power. With mutual slaughter their natural order, it remains to be seen whether or not President el Sissi can reform them. President el Sadat paid the ultimate price for trying.

  • Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and it seeks one of the world’s most terrifying weapons: a nuclear bomb.

    Israel’s PM speech in Congress today just reinforced our resolve to stop Iran’s Nuclear development at all costs. The alternative could bring the world to a nuclear Holocaust.

    Iran also has developed the largest ballistic missile force in the Middle East, which poses a growing threat to U.S. bases, U.S. allies, and numerous other countries in the region.

    The rogue regimes in Iran pose some of the most dangerous threats to U.S. national security interests. Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is rapidly expanding its nuclear program and ballistic missile force plus other offensive weapons and methods of terror. Regrettably, the Obama Administration has failed to formulate effective policies to address the challenges posed by the rising power of Iran and its unpredictable regime.
    Iran has been hostile to the United States since 1979, when a revolution brought to power a cadre of anti-Western Shia Islamist revolutionaries who dubbed the United States the “Great Satan.” Iran has tried to export its Islamist revolution violently to Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Gaza and Saudi Arabia by supporting Shia radical Islamists in each of these countries. Tehran helped to create the Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon and has supported a wide variety of terrorist and revolutionary groups throughout the Middle East. It became the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism to advance its foreign policy goals and punish its enemies.
    In recent years, Iran’s hostile regime has been one of the chief beneficiaries of the political turmoil that convulsed the Middle East during the “Arab Spring,” which distracted the United States and other countries from the ongoing standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. The dramatic events diverted international attention from Tehran’s stubborn defiance of four rounds of U.N. Security Council sanctions resolutions on the nuclear issue. The political upheaval in the Arab world also has toppled a government in Egypt, and recreated a new government headed by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Iran undermined governments in Jordan, Bahrain, and elsewhere, that firmly opposed Iran. Although Bashar al-Assad’s pro-Iranian regime in Syria also has been weakened, strong support from Iran appears for the moment to have evened the balance of power in Syria’s civil war fueled by Assad.
    Some of the consequences has been the growth of ISIS and its goal for a Caliphate Dominion. The horrific pictures of beheadings and atrocities that defy human comprehension, only awaken our resolve to stop terror and violence before it engulfs the whole world and threaten our own survival.
    In retrospect, how would the U.S. react if Iran was a neighbor of the U.S. with its nuclear development and a threat to the U.S. and its allies.

    U.S must force the halt of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Washington must do a better job of enforcing its red line against an Iranian nuclear weapon than it did in enforcing the Obama Administration’s ill-considered red line against Syrian chemical weapons. Tehran must be forced by additional sanctions to comply with its non-proliferation obligations. The U.S. must demonstrate the willingness and capacity to defend its vital interests in the region. The U.S. should not agree to lift or ease anymore sanctions until Iran has taken concrete and irreversible actions to stop uranium enrichment, ship medium-enriched uranium stocks out of the country, close the uranium enrichment facility at Fordow, and halt work on the heavy water reactor at Arak and other location in Iran or its accomplices.

    Imagine Iran with nuclear capability and some terrorists getting a hold off a backpack with a nuclear device or dirty bomb and detonating it in the middle of Times Square in New York or any other congested area with hundreds of thousands in casualties. Do you think the American people will tolerate such a potential threat.
    I think 9-11 has shown to the American people that threats and weapons of mass destruction in the possession of terrorists is a national threat to America and the rest of the free world.
    It is time for the free world to take the gloves off and treat the threat with utmost force and cleanse the terrorists and its sponsors from existence.

    These beast have a lust for blood, imagine having a young boy execute this poor young man, who foolishly ventured into
    the devil’s hell.

    Revenge will be sweet said God, well, God, when is this going to happen. These monsters can’t continue enjoying showing the world on electronic media, how disgusting they are.
