Details about "Jabba the Jihadi" emerge after his capture

Provided the Islamic Religious and "Scholarly" Justification for Sex Slavery of Non-Muslims as "Spoils of War"

By Timothy Gamble

1-21-2020 - Last week, the senior ISIS official who ordered destruction of Jonah's Tomb was captured in Mosul. Since then, additional information has come out about exactly who Shifa Al-Neama, nicknamed Abu Abd Al-Bari, was and what role he played in ISIS. This terrorist was a "big fish" in ISIS, in more ways than one, weighing an estimated 560 pounds and known within Iraq as "Jabba the Jihadi” - a reference to the Star Wars character Jabba the Hutt.

Jabba the Jihadi provided the Islamic religious justification for the enslavement, torture, and ethic cleansing of Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in Iraq. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Yazidi women and girls, some as young as 7, were raped and sold as sex slaves, not only in Iraq, but worldwide. Those who resisted were either beheaded or burnt alive. It is believed many of these women and girls remain enslaved.

Jabba the Jihadi provided the religious and "scholarly" justifications for using women and girls as "spoils of war" based on passages from the Koran and other Islamic teachings. He became known to the Western world after he published an article in 2014 on Dabiq, a digital magazine published by ISIS, in which he gave these justifications. 


This picture of a Yazidi woman, captured by ISIS, being sold as a sex slave was found on the cell phone of a ISIS fighter killed in Iraq in 2014. It is believed that this particular photo was taken at Saudi Arabian Slave Market. The ultimate fate of the woman pictured remains unknown.

Statement on Self-Defense and the Use of Force

By Timothy Gamble

This statement reflects my views on Self-Defense and the Use of Force, prayerfully developed over many years of consideration. I do not seek to prove these views to the reader, but rather hope the reader will investigate the many sources given in the footnotes, should they have questions about why I hold these views. 

For the purposes of the following statement, I define self-defense as "the use of force, including potentially deadly force, as a last resort to protect oneself or others from the threat of imminent harm." This definition therefore excludes the use of force solely for personal gain, or out of a desire for revenge or vengeance. Also notice some key words of that definition - "last resort", "protect", and "imminent harm" - that suggest there are limitations upon the use of force in self-defense. Self-defense is not an excuse for the unlimited use of violence.  


Statement on Self-Defense and the Use of Force

I strongly believe in the unalienable right of self-defense, including the defense of others. It is a biblical concept, which can be proved with numerous passages from both the Old and New Testaments. (see footnotes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8)

I strongly support the Second Amendment. We have the right to possess the tools of self-defense, including guns and knives. (see footnotes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,)   

I reject retaliation, revenge, and vengeance, because God's Word makes it clear that such belongs to the Lord, not man. (see footnotes 1, 6)

I reject unwise and inappropriate use of force in self-defense. This includes being too quick to anger, and lacking self-control. Defensive force should only be used as a last resort. "Employing potentially lethal force out of anger, hatred, jealously, or revenge is always wrong and is condemned by Scripture." (see footnote 7)

I reject unprovoked aggression (the initiation of force without just cause). Aggression (force) is necessary, and ethical, in some circumstances to protect ourselves (or others) from actions or threats against our lives, freedoms, rights, or property. 

I reject the concept of absolute pacifism (the idea that force should never be used under any circumstances, even in self-defense or defense of others). I consider refusing to help defend those in legitimate need, when you have the ability to do so, to be a potentially immoral and cowardly act, because it suggests that life isn't worth defending.

Shiite vs. Sunni: 116 Killed, 120 injured in Yemen Missle Attack

By Timothy Gamble

Yemen - On Saturday, January 18, Shiite radicals launched a missile attack against a Sunni mosque in Marib, Yemen. Reports state that 116 people were killed and at least 120 were injured. 

This attack is part of the ongoing civil war in Yemen between Shai Muslim and Sunni Muslim groups. The civil war is considered by many to be a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran, overwhelming Shiite, is training, arming, and supporting the Shai side, while Saudi Arabia, overwhelmingly Sunni, is doing the same for the Sunni side, including providing air support.

Senior ISIS official who ordered destruction of Jonah's Tomb captured in Mosul

The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC). Please check out the ICC website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world.

Senior ISIS Official Arrested in Mosul

01/20/2019 Iraq (International Christian Concern) – This past Thursday, the Nineveh Police Command’s SWAT team arrested a Sharia official and ISIS mufti in the city of Mosul. Shifa Al-Neama, nicknamed Abu Abd Al-Bari, had worked as a preacher in several mosques where he was educating about ISIS ideology and inciting affiliation. His arrest came just one day after the US military announced that it had resumed joint operations with Iraqi Forces against ISIS.

As an ISIS leader, he responsible for issuing fatwas in support of executing those Muslims who refrained to pledge allegiance to ISIS. He was also responsible for running gangs of ISIS and is believed to have ordered the destruction of heritage sites in Mosul. He had issued the fatwa which had destroyed the Tomb of the Prophet Jonah.

This arrest in Mosul underscores how the ideology of ISIS remains vibrant within the underbelly of the Nineveh Plains, even though the militants no longer maintain control of the territory. The Nineveh Plains is the traditional homeland of Iraq’s Christians, but the genocide of ISIS against religious minorities displaced the entire community. Most have not returned home, citing infrastructure and security concerns.

A couple of interesting tweets by Scott Presler (@ThePersistence), the second of which is a great reminder to voters:

The NAZI's loved gun control. In fact, all collectivist governments and dictatorships do. It makes it easier to control the people.  Check out the book Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and "Enemies of the State" for some history that rarely gets taught these days.  Don't be a NAZI. Support the Second Amendment.

Is this tweet proof of the violent protests the media (and the Virginia governor) have been warning about? Hmmmm...
