ISIS ‘kill list’ includes names of 151 Canadians
Many on the list are victims of previous social media hacks

There are 151 Canadians about to get an uncomfortable phone call from police.
It may go something like this: “It’s probably nothing, but … your name appears to be on an ISIS kill list.”
Imagine getting that call. Imagine being the constable assigned to make it.
CBC has obtained a copy of the list, which contains the names, and email and physical addresses of some 8,300 people around the globe. It’s hard to tell what unites them.
The Canadian names are mostly of women, from predominantly small centres in Canada, although there are some from large cities, too.
In analyzing the Canadian data, CBC has learned that most email addresses (71 per cent) appear to have been hacked at some point, either in an old LinkedIn hack or one from Myspace or Adobe. It is possible the information from those hacks was simply pushed around from group to group. Some of the information may exist in the public domain.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) says it first uncovered the list on pro-ISIS accounts from social media platforms like Telegram.
MEMRI’s Elliot Zwig says the first call was to police.
Ahh, yes. MEMRI. The plot thickens. This is the outfit whose greatest claim to fame is deliberately mistranslating a speech by former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. “This occupation regime over Jerusalem must vanish from the arena of time” became “israel must be wiped off the face of the map.”
Did Ahmadinejad really say Israel should be ‘wiped off the map’?

MEMRI, of course, is the baby of legendary israeli film director Rita Katz. Katz is best known for her “beheading videos” which depict the cranial units of dead corpses being separated from their bodies and passed off as live decapitations. Katz’ SITE “Intelligence Agency” is known for “discovering” these videos on “Muslim” websites and breathlessly promoting them around the world.
There is no indication anyone on any of these lists has ever been harmed, but if they have had that call from police, they have most assuredly had a moment of pause. Various police agencies in Canada have confirmed to CBC that they are in the process of informing everyone on the list of what is going on. There is a “duty to inform.” It takes time and resources and distracts from other investigations police need to be conducting.
And that suits these pro-ISIS groups just fine.
Arsenault, the CBC typist, doesn’t indicate if Republican-In-Name-Only Arizona Senator John McCain is included amongst those “pro-ISIS” groups. Nor does she mention the U.S. and other NATO military officials responsible for air-dropping supplies – everything from food to guns and ammo – over ISIS positions in Syria. Accidentally, of course. And let’s not forget those Toyota pick-up trucks.
On Friday, March 4th, the leading opposition newspaper in Turkey, Zaman, was taken over by the Government; and, today, March 5th, one of the other opposition newspapers,Cumhuriyet, reported that Zaman’s separate news-service to other news-media, Cihan News Agency, has now also been disabled on the Internet. (Anyone who goes to the site obtains an error-message.)
The Turkish Government is trying to prevent the Turkish public from knowing that Turkey has been serving as the transit-route by which the U.S. government and its allied Arab oil monarchies (especially Saudi Arabia and Qatar) have been supplying foreign jihadists and weapons (largely U.S. but paid for with Saudi funds) into Syria to oust Bashar al-Assad from power.
Zaman’s editor has been imprisoned for publishing such prohibited truths, but somehow his newspaper continued reporting on a court case in which Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdoğan is accused of breaking Turkish law by aiding terrorists. That continued resistance by the newspaper might be a reason why the Turkish Government has now (as of Friday March 4th) shut it down
“The international coalition led by the US still sends aid and military equipment to the ISIL terrorists in Iraq through air,” Kamil al-Zaidi told FNA on Sunday.
“Therefore, we are entitled to distrust the US-led coalition and find a new strategic partner and that partner can be the quadrilateral coalition,” he added.
Zaidi said some members are ready to withdraw from the US-led coalition to join the quadrilateral coalition which has shown its creditability and good will by effective attacks against ISIL positions.
In relevant remarks on Thursday, a prominent analyst blasted the US for violating its security pact with Iraq by procrastinating airstrikes on ISIL command centers and targets.
“The US has not complied with any of its undertakings stated in the pact and inflicted a major loss and damage on Iraq,” Ahmad al-Sharifi told FNA.
Not surprisingly, CBC disabled commenting. Again. The last thing the pressitute corporate media and whorespondents like Arsenault want is the sheep pointing out the various, ahem, inconsistencies regarding “ISIS.” Like John “The Russians are bombing our assets!” McCain. Like the Toyota pick-up trucks. Like Turkey – acting on behalf of the District of Criminals – shooting down an Russian bomber which had just completed a mission against a real ISIS target. Like Bilal Erdogan – the Turkish president’s son – trafficking in stolen Syrian oil.
Before the CBC clamped down on comments, truthers (corporate media uses that word, truther, as if it is a bad thing) outnumbered those promoting the official narrative ten-to-one. And those were just the posts not censored by Keith Bilous’s work-at-home outfit ICUC.
On an unrelated note, CBC recently changed its commenting policy and deleted all previous accounts. Contributors were required to sign up with new profiles using their real names.In theory, this should make it much easier for the likes of Richard Warman as well as the legions of professional israelis over at bnai brith to prosecute Canadians for unapproved thoughts.
LettersToTheBeast is pleased to announce your humble correspondent has picked out a new, real-sounding name and is back in business.
Unfortunately, the number of articles at CBC.ca which remain available for comment continues to be severely limited.
