VIDEO: ISIS jihadists put out Hollywood-style propaganda films

The number of jihad recruitment videos is exploding with the bloody success of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Videos like this: ISIS Video Calls to “Break the Crosses and Destroy the Lineage of the Grandsons of Monkeys” — thousands of Muslims from the US, UK, Europe, Australia have gone to Syria to wage jihad. Expect that number to increase exponentially with the taking of northern Iraq.

Al Qaeda’s ultra-extremist Syrian offshoot known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) is stepping up efforts to recruit Americans and other westerners for jihad in Syria and possibly for future domestic terror attacks, according to U.S. officials.

A new media outlet affiliated with ISIL recently began producing recruiting materials in both English and German that U.S. intelligence analysts say is a sign they are targeting western jihadists for recruitment.

Knowing what soulless sell-outs the misanthropes in Hollywood are, it won’t be long before they are making these films “Savage Productions.” Isn’t Matt Damon’s  latest fracking film financed by sharia state Abu Dhabl? The Gulf states are financing ISIS — it’s not that big a stretch.


“ISIS jihadists put out Hollywood-style propaganda film,” France 24, June 17, 2014

Aerial shots, slow-motion explosions, scenes filmed through a rifle’s crosshairs… You might think this is footage from a new summer blockbuster, but you would be wrong. It is, in fact, a new propaganda video produced by Sunni jihadists from the armed group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The extremely violent hour-long film was published online just days before ISIS launched a massive offensive in northern Iraq.
The film is called “The Clanging of the Swords IV”. The Roman numeral is there because, much like with Hollywood blockbusters, the film is part of a series. This one was first published on Internet forums heavily frequented by ISIS members, and was then reposted on the group’s official Twitter account on May 17, 2014.

The opening sequence pans in on a map of the fictitious geographic zone that the ISIS fighters call the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria”, which encompasses Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, and Iraq. This is followed by footage from a drone flying over Fallujah, an Iraqi city that ISIS has controlled since early 2014. Then, a rocket launch is heard, as if to mark the start of the “action”. (The full-length, original video can be viewed here).

A message for the Iraqi army

The three videos that came before “The Clanging of the Swords IV” primarily consisted of footage filmed by ISIS during its fighting in Syria. However, on May 17, the organisation aired this action-oriented montage of scenes filmed in Iraq, which includes real footage of, for instance, official Iraqi vehicles being machine-gunned full of holes, the execution of Iraqi soldiers and the destruction of tanks. This footage came as a warning, three weeks before the start of the ISIS offensive on the cities of Mosul, Tikrit, and Kirkuk.

On an Iraqi road, fighters shoot at vehicles that Iraqi officials are allegedly riding in.

The film, which includes many graphic images, has been taken off YouTube multiple times, but is each time uploaded anew by different users. It is hard to say how often it has been viewed and whether it has impacted the morale of Iraqi soldiers. Some Twitter online commenters predicted that “this video will cause 10 to 15% of [Iraqi] soldiers to desert.” And indeed, many Iraqi soldiers did not fight back when the jihadists arrived, opting instead to take off their uniforms and disappear into the crowds of fleeing civilians – even though in northern Iraq, soldiers outnumbered jihadists ten to one.
