Former US Army Ranger – turned Muslim convert – Peter Kassig was allegedly beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) recently, according to several media outlets. Apparently, 18 Syrian Air Force pilots were also beheaded, although the numbers vary from 18 to 20. Here's the screen grab of the said video showing an alleged Filipino IS a member.
“This is simply the GPH attempting to minimize the threat, and they’re doing that because they don’t have a good grasp on the severity of the situation. Also, President Aquino is becoming increasingly worried about his sagging approval ratings and very real possibility that his signature policy – the Bangsamoro Peace Deal – will become more of a nightmare than a dream.”
“We disagree, and assess that although Philippines terror groups aren’t quite at the level of their Indonesia and Malaysia-based counterparts, they are still actively working to achieve their goal of securing overseas funding associated with IS to help finance their operations inside their home country. Furthermore, we assess that approximately 10-20 Filipinos have actually traveled to Syria or Iraq with the purpose of networking with “the right people” connected to foreign financiers. In this piece we will lay out some key developments that contradict Ambassador Goldberg’s assertions.”
Now, we have a piece of disputable evidence that indeed, the probability is high for southern Philippines terror cell to be sending fighters to Syria and joined the ISIS.
For now, all we have to do is wait for the next events to unfold as the GRP and USGov don’t tell us the truth on this matter.
