Abracadabra: We are now fighting ISIS Takfiris In Borno

12 March 2015, 12:04 Peregrino Brimah

A dead man called Abubakar Shekau said, "We announce our allegiance to the rabid Takfiri Caliph ... and will hear and obey him in times of difficulty and prosperity," and the spell was cast, the purple smoke wafted out of the hat; Boko Haram had become ISIS.

It is ever so clear that Boko Haram are mad men as are ISIS; the question we must ask is: are we insane too? Are we anything but rancorously entertained by this pathetic press release?

Firstly, for all purposes, Abubakar Shekau is dead. Let no one be confused. Abubakar Shekau does not exist; the immortal title is being handled by doubles and computer graphics.

Secondly, ISIS comes from the polytheistic goddess pantheon of Egypt. Pronounced "Aset" or "Iset”, the name ISIS does not refer to “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or Syria,” or anything related, it refers to the Egyptian goddess Isis, the patron of magic and protector of the dead.

There are other funny names, usually given by governments and western intelligence organizations, seldom assumed; these include: al Qaeda, FSA, Jabhat al Nusra, Khorosan Group, ISIL, ISIS, IS, Daesh, Boko Haram. They are all pretty much all the same, typically Takfiri.

So the sobriquet that matters to us is “Takfiri,” while the policy that applies in all these is, - eradication by the fastest means possible. Extermination like we do our bugs at home, and we do not really care what the bugs are called, we focus more on getting the best bug spray and applying it judiciously. Takfiri-exterminator for all.

Who are the Takfiri? Well in summary, they are a group with links to some mischievous people, some royal and some intelligence, in Europe and the Middle East.

What is their principle? Well, though they claim “Islam,” as foundation, there is no dispute that their #1 policy is, “any means to our end,” including eating the enemy and killing the friend.

Who are Takfiri’s main victims? You guessed right: Muslims. But they do not discriminate, well except against certain Middle Eastern tribes who they receive arms and ammunition from, but those aside, they kill Muslims, Christians and others without discrimination. Takfiri Policy #1.

Takfiri policy #2: Get money; US dollars. Takfiri are well paid. They have what we all dream of… money, money, money. Unlike us where our mere transfers of a few hundred dollars raise flags at the world switches (Brussels’  SWIFT - Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) in Manhattan and the United Kingdom with our cash flow being blocked or frozen, Takfiri’s transfer and receives millions of dollars, no problem.

What changed in Nigeria’s terror war? Well perhaps nothing or perhaps a lot. As Boko Haram realized their days as a territorial insurgency were almost over, thanks to the MNJTF, the terrorists signed up with goddess Isis for one of two or both of the following reasons: to solicit Isis’ rescue from impending death; 2, to invite the United States to Nigeria. With Boko Haram “becoming” Isis, Nigeria now falls under the US axis of permitted attack. The US can bomb Nigeria now without telling us first. Boko Haram has hurriedly given the US an official invitation as a last statement before their tactical death and the possible change of government to one that promises to eliminate their currently supported existence.

That is the summary of implication f that 8 minute audio message from who? Dead man Shekau.
