Islamic State jihadists have made their way from Syria to Britain with the aim of carrying out devastating attacks in the UK, a defector from the terror group has said.

In an exclusive documentary aired on Sky News, the anonymous individual claimed that up to four men who have spent six weeks in an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) training camp in Syria have now returned to the UK to carry out terror attacks.

After we did the training, we joined the [IS] elite security force. We were very close to them [the foreign fighters], taking care of them. We didn’t interfere in their business,” he said.

They came from everywhere. The people trained for a month and a half. Some of them went back to their countries and some stayed with us.

Two reporters for the channel pretended to be extremists…

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has forbidden the head of the Mossad to brief Zionist Union Knesset members on the threat posed by ISIS (Islamic State) in the Sinai Peninsula.

Zionist Union faction chairwoman Merav Michaeli, who submitted the request, said Netanyahu claimed such a briefing would set a precedent, and therefore, he didn’t want to approve it.

Michaeli told Haaretz that the faction decided it needed more information about ISIS in light of three recent events: last week’s attack on Egyptian security forces by the organization’s Sinai affiliate, Wilayat Sinai; the group’s rocket fire at southern Israel over the weekend; and the statement by former CIA director David Petraeus that ISIS is currently a bigger threat than Iran.

On Sunday, therefore, she asked Mossad director Tamir Pardo if he would attend Zionist…

‘WE’RE TRAINING ISIL’: WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE CORRECTS OBAMA’S SPEECH BLOOPER

Originally posted on Friends of Syria:

President’s embarrassing error during press briefing amended on official transcript

The White House.gov website has corrected an embarrassing mistake made by Barack Obama during his press briefing yesterday about the Islamic State when the President said that U.S. forces were “training ISIL.”

During his speech, Obama uttered the line, “with the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.”

The White House.gov transcript left in the original quote, but placed the word ‘Iraqi’ in brackets after the word ISIL, correcting Obama’s mistake.

This is by no means the first time that the White House has edited transcripts of Obama’s speeches to put the president in a better light or cover up for his mistakes.

Last October, the White House completely scrubbed a reference Obama made to unpaid pills being stacked up at his home in Chicago, replacing it with the quote, “there’s still junk on…

Hillary Clinton is running for US president on promises to protect Americans from “traditional threats” like Russia and a “rising” China, which Russia’s FM spokeswoman described as coming directly from populist pamphlets of the last century.

“No other country is better equipped to meet traditional threats from countries like Russia, North Korea, and Iran – and to deal with the rise of new powers like China,” the candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton, said during her first major campaign speech on Saturday. “As your President, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep Americans safe.”

The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Press and Information Department, Maria Zakharova, struck back at the ex-US Secretary of State and former first lady, saying that the Democrats were…
