RETROSPECTIVE: ISIS Encouraged Followers to Light Forest Fires in US; Plus New Insights

The Islamic State is telling its followers to ignite destructive forest fires in the United States and Europe.

As California continues to grapple with powerful fires that have forced hundreds of thousands to evacuate, a pro-ISIS media outlet called Quraysh has reportedly released propaganda posters urging adherents to “ignite fires.”

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, the first of the posters began circulating in April and the latest appeared on Monday.


The institute, which monitors and tracks communications in radical groups, said the translation on the April poster read, “Oh monotheists [ISIS followers], ignite fires in the forests and fields, and we are addressing especially those who live in Europe and America, for they are painful to them.”

The latest poster singled out individual countries in Europe as well, telling followers to “Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain, and Germany, for they are painful to them.”

Last week, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a statewide emergency over the spate of fires. Pacific Gas and Electric has used targeted blackouts in high-wind areas as a way to stop more forest fires and millions have been left without power.

Seattle police are reporting that several arson fires have been set by protesters Saturday afternoon local time. A construction trailer at the site of a juvenile detention center was torched. There is also a report of businesses set on fire. (Update: Starbucks).

Update: Videos:

I have shifted up to Seattle today to follow a large demonstration that's in solidarity with Portland.

I'd estimate a crowd of 2,000 already. They just torched construction buildings at the site of a new youth detention center.

The following video and images were posted to various social media sites during a time when the notion of arson-linked California wildfires was a central topic in mainstream news. At that time, numerous citizen journalists were attempting to solve the mystery of the origins of these fires, and in some cases, it seems these people came fairly close to the truth. Yet it was interesting to see the reactions of certain social media websites.

Sites such as Facebook did not seem very interested in allowing users to freely post their research about these fires. In fact, in many cases, it seemed as though Facebook and other platforms were actually protecting criminal interests and aiding them in their various efforts.

The identity of this alleged arsonist is unknown, as much of the details of the official investigation have remained secret among authorities. Will we ever hear the truth told?

When we hear that ISIS encouraged their American followers to set forest fires, we might speculate as to whom these followers might be, we are compelled to use critical thinking and deductive reasoning (as with any undertaking of research). When we consider the evidence we have seen, the associations of these "American followers" start to become clear. However, authorities still have yet to communicate such connections publicly.

This lack of willingness of authorities to complete vital investigations tells us something. Either these authorities do not respect the American public enough to tell them the truth, or there is some other agenda in play that has caused authorities to be lenient or even to enable these ISIS affiliates in the U.S.

We don't know the true motives behind the aforementioned secrecy. All we can do is to consult the following evidence (original posters unknown) and consider what the details of the situation might be.

It is very surprising (or maybe not so surprising) to see the alleged Antifa members promoting/siding with the United Nations. Yet it is even more shocking to see the United Nations returning the favor.

We may note the propagandistic narrative the U.N. is promoting (in the tweet below) and that this narrative comes directly from Antifa members themselves. The narrative typically focuses on the name of the group alone while deliberately ignoring the crime and destruction the group is currently being arrested and prosecuted for.

The cliché, "Don't judge a book by its cover," comes to mind. Surely at least one member of the U.N. is aware of this age-old wisdom.

Why would a terrorist organization show such support for a group of "peaceful protestors," as the American media loves to label Antifa agitators?

Why would an official world organization promote a violent criminal organization of insurgents?

An even more interesting question is, why would an American social media company work to protect the image of these groups while punishing those who attempt to expose these criminal organizations? And why would functional authorities look the other way for so long while all of these (alleged) crimes take place?

I tried to post these same images on Facebook years ago. Their response was interesting.

Was Facebook covering for these criminal organizations?

Facebook seemed to favor these criminal groups  giving them a platform and allowing them to communicate freely  while punishing common citizens for trying to expose their crimes. To my knowledge, from a legal standpoint, to aid and abet terrorists is, itself, terrorism.

By observation, we see the United Nations logo does not "violate Community Standards," as Facebook claimed.

We should note that Facebook has recently de-platformed these criminal organizations, but only long after the mainstream media began painting these groups in a negative light. Conveniently, the mainstream media also made these observations years after these groups had done significant damage to the country.
