Sky TV’s Islamic State Failure

Islamic State Files

Islamic State Files

Over the past two days we have consistently heard about the mass of terrorist intelligence files that Sky TV has uncovered in Turkey. The file contains the names, addresses and much more on twenty-two thousand Islamic State terrorists currently residing in many countries including Britain, and yet, shortly after receiving it from a disillusioned terrorist it would appear they made it public on their news programme. It is clear they did not want to miss out on taking full credit for the find.

The files have been handed over to the Intelligence Authorities to be acted upon, but in my view, with Sky having ‘let the cat out of the bag’ most of the I.S. operatives will be going into hiding or travelling back to Syria to avoid capture by the authorities.

There can be little doubt that although many of these files are one to two years old, they could have done irreparable damage to Islamic State if it had been kept secret for even a few weeks. It may still do that, but the ‘blade has been blunted’ after this announcement. Arrests by the thousand all across the world could have been made if this information had not been released to the public so quickly, and many of the jihadist networks in Europe and other countries would have been severely damaged.

The documents contain a wealth of information on a huge number of jihadists who have joined the group, like addresses, family contacts, phone numbers, age, where they signed up and their country of origin plus much more. In all it shows that I.S. members have come from 51 different countries across the world to join the group.

It was surprising to learn that only 72% of the registered fighters are Arab, so it is clear they have a lot of converts to their cause among them. About a quarter of the total are from Saudi Arabia with many coming from Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. As previously stated, there are also many from Europe, the United States and Canada among other countries.

The big question for nations worldwide is what to do with this information. Once the lists have been analyzed the security forces and police in every country affected must arrest all those they can find. They need to be locked up in top security prisons and all family members arrested and deported back to their home country. I say this because there can be little doubt that family members knew what these people were doing, and yet did nothing. To show mercy to these religious butchers and their families would be a very grave mistake.

As you will expect, when the time comes the ‘Bleeding Hearts Brigade’ will be out in full force protesting about the jihadist and their families rights. Anyone who pays attention to these people should be deported along with them. Once those caught have served a long prison sentence they should be deported back to their own country without a moment’s hesitation.

You cannot fight a burning house with a single bucket of water, so therefore the measures taken must be appropriate. The countries of the world must ensure with the stiffest penalties that no-one ever gets the idea of committing mass killings in the name of their religion again.
