Notes that must be mentioned about ISIS members

Notes that must be mentioned about ISIS members:

Hardened criminals are the make-up of the striking force of ISIS, they are often ex-criminals who were polarized permanently by ISIS. The people here in Mosul know this very well. Anyone can ask any Mosuli walking in the street about some of ISIS militiamen, and would be directly told that he used to know one who was an “alcoholic, thief, criminal” who used to put tattoos all over his shoulders and body, someone with criminal history. I personally know one of ISIS militiamen and he spent all of his life in jail, since his teenage-hood, for “sexual abuse” crimes; he’s an alcoholic and still drinks alcohol despite that he is with ISIS now; however, he wears their clothes, carries weapon and their flag now. Another one is known in the city, Al-Zinjeeli area specifically, and another who I was told about by my friend. My friend said: “could you imagine that this person has become with ISIS?” I said “and what’s with him?” He said “this guy used to sell porn CDs to the youth in the area and now is speaking in the name of God, Sharia’a and Islamic state!”. Previously, there was another known guy in Al-Zinjeeli area, also called “son of Widad” as his mother was a “prostitute” but at some time he become a prince in Al-Qaeda organization. Another one called by “Ibn Aziz” is known in his area by the nickname “Ahmed trash/waste”; he is one of ISIS leads today.

Do you think I’m exaggerating? I am not, at all. This is the truth. But you might be asking why would ISIS accept them? Aren’t they claiming that they follow Islamic Law/ Sharia’a exactly? Well, that’s because ISIS had put entrances and explanations for those in order for them to join their front, which is “the door of repentance” in addition to a usual sentence they use “your best in ignorance.. Your best in Islam..”. You can imagine the scene for yourself here. I must point out an important point to the non-Arab readers and non-Iraqis regarding the matter of drinking alcohol and having tattoos: such things are not acceptable, socially and religiously, in the Iraqi community generally and in Mosul’s community specifically, as Mosul’s community is known to be “conservative”.

ملاحظات لابد من ذكرها حول عناصر داعش:

يشكل المجرمون العتاة القوة الضاربة لداعش فهم غالبا ما يكونون مجرمين سابقين وقد استقطبتهم داعش بشكل دائم والناس هنا في الموصل يعرفون ذلك تماما فبامكان اي شخص ان يسأل عابرا من سكان الموصل عن بعض مسلحي داعش ليخبره مباشرة انه كان يعرفه “هذا المجرم السارق السكير” من الذين يضعون الوشوم على اكتافهم واجسادهم، من اصحاب السوابق والاجرام، فانا شخصيا اعرف احد مسلحي داعش قضى حياته كلها في السجن منذ صباه بجرائم “الشذوذ الجنسي” وهو سكير مايزال يشرب الخمر حتى وهو مع داعش لكنه الان يرتدي ثيابهم ويحمل السلاح ورايتهم، واخر معروف في المدينة في منطقة الزنجيلي تحديدا، وآخر اخبرني عنه صديقي قال : هل تتخيل ان فلان اصبح من داعش؟ قلت له ومابه؟ قال هذا كان يبيع اقراص الافلام الاباحية للشباب في المنطقة، والان يتكلم باسم الله والشريعة والدولة الاسلامية. وسابقا كان هناك شخص آخر معروف في منطقة الزنجيلي ايضا يسمى “ابن وداد” كانت امه “عاهرة” لكنه في وقت ما اصبح اميرا في تنظيم القاعدة، وآخر يسمى “ابن عزيز” يعرفه اهل منطقته بــ “احمد مزبلة” هو ايضا من قيادي داعش اليوم، هل تظنون انني ابالغ؟ ابدا لا ابالغ انها هي الحقيقة، لكن قد تتساءلون ولماذا ترضى داعش بهم؟ ما انها تدعي تطبيق الشريعة الاسلامية بحذافيرها؟ لان داعش قد وضعت مدخلا ومبررا لوصول مثل هؤلاء الى صفوفها وهو “باب التوبة” وايضا ما يتداولوه من عبارة “خياركم في الجاهلية خياركم في الاسلام”. ولكم ان تتخيلوا المشهد هنا.

ولابد هنا ان اشير الى نقطة مهمة بالنسبة للقراء غير العرب وغير العراقيين حول مسألة شرب الخمر او الوشوم، مثل هذه المظاهر تعتبر اجتماعيا ودينيا مرفوضة تماما في المجتمع العراقي بشكل عام والمجتمع الموصلي بشكل خاص لأنه معروف عن مجتمع الموصل بانه “محافظ”.
