Armed clashes between pro-ISIS and pro-Al Qaeda factions in Sinai

DEBKAfile’s counter-terrorism sources report a major falling-out among factions of the Islamist terrorist movement fighting the Egyptian army in Sinai   Armed clashes erupted in recent days in the peninsula’s central region between loyalists of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and factions which have declared allegiance to Al Qaeda. A hitherto unknown group calling itself Jund al-Islam announced that its fighters had attacked ISIS forces, calling them “Al-Baghdadi’s Kharjites” (infidels), A leaflet calls on ISIS commanders in Sinai to surrender or stand trial before a religious court for “crimes against Muslims.”
DEBKAfile adds: The revolt against ISIS comes from a group of local Bedouin tribal elders, who are up in arms over the influx through Jordan of scores of Islamic State officers, who are on the run from defeats in Syria and Iraq and are trying to take over the Sinai jihadist movement.

    Excellent – more Islamic infighting. Wonder how they will blame the Jews for this one?

      It’s easy, if the Jews would have killed either of them or both of them, they could not fight with each other ….

      No need, the ‘jews’ accuse themselves

      Yirm 24:9 And I will deliver them for abhorrence, for an offense to kol mamlechot ha’aretz to be a reproach and a byword, a taunt and a kelalah (curse) in all places where I shall drive them.

      In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’,

      Amos – Chapter 6

      1. Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them.

      2. Proceed to Calneh and see, and go from there to the great Hamath, and go down to Gath of the Philistines-are they better than these kingdoms, or is their border greater than your border?

      3. You, who bring yourselves closer to the day of evil, and you bring near the dwelling amidst violence.

      Tehillah 97

      1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
      The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.

      the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

      2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

      3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.

      Fire will go before Him: in the war of Gog and Magog, for it is written concerning his war (Ezek. 38:22): “And I shall plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and rain bringing floods and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.”

      4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.

      His lightnings: His brilliant lights, an expression of (Ezek. 21:15): “It is polished that it may glitter”

      5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.

      melted like wax: as it is written (Ezek. 38:20): “and the mountains will be thrown down, and the cliffs will fall.”

      Yeshayahu- Isaiah – Chapter 29

      And it shall be, as the hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats, and he shall awaken, and his appetite is unsated, and as the thirsty man dreams, and behold he drinks, and he shall awaken and behold he is faint, and his soul yearns, so shall be the multitude of all the nations gathered on Mount Zion.
