I infiltrated ISIS — here’s how I was instructed to carry out a terrorist attack

I infiltrated ISIS — here’s how I was instructed to carry out a terrorist attack thumbnail

How does ISIS recruit its attackers in Germany? What are the last instructions before the terrorists strike and kill as many innocent people as possible?

For months, BILD reporter Björn Stritzel pretended to be an Islamist willing to carry out an attack (always in consultation with the security authorities).

My mobile phone vibrates just before midnight. For some months, nobody had been in touch with me.

Now it’s the German “brother” again. He wants to remind me of my duty. My duty to engage in a murderous attack.

“I hope you are in best Iman,” he writes in the typical jihadist jargon. “We had some internet trouble, so we were unable to contact you for a while.”

The German again pushes me to strike soon. Every day that passes without an attack is dangerous, he says, because the “kuffar police” – the police of the “disbelievers” – could foil my plan. “Just grab a knife and slay your neighbour – they don’t expect that!”

Eventually, another German-speaking ISIS terrorist contacts me. He says he knows from the German “brother” that I want to carry out an attack and wants to help me.

There is evidence that this is a familiar and infamous jihadist: the Austrian Mohamed Mahmoud aka Abu Usama al-Gharib.

Mahmoud was imprisoned from 2007 to 2011 because of his propaganda activities for al-Qaida. After his release, he went to Germany, where he managed the jihadist group Millatu Ibrahim, together with the German Denis Cuspert. The group was the decisive organiser of the clashes in Solingen.

In 2012, the Minister of the Interior banned Millatu Ibrahim. The core circle surrounding Cuspert and Mahmoud first moved to Egypt and Libya before joining ISIS in Syria. Mahmoud’s most infamous appearance took place in the ancient ruined city of Palmyra in the summer of 2015. The first entirely German-language ISIS video shows Mahmoud and the jihadist Yamin Abou-Zand from Bonn shoot two prisoners. Mahmoud called for attacks in Germany even back then. One year later, he believed he had found a “brother” who was willing to carry out an attack.

ISIS Images distributed by Islamic State militants on social media in August 2015 purported to show the purposeful destruction of an ancient temple in Palmyra with explosives. Reuters

What Mahmoud does not know: he already had an argument with this pretend-brother. I had written an article about him over a year ago. Mahmoud then invited me to come to Syria – where he was waiting in order to cut my head off.

Now he urges me to finally strike against the disbelievers. I tell him that my attempts at building a bomb have failed.

However, D. – the name which Mahmoud is probably hiding behind – has advice: “We are happy to help. Look, akhi, give up building a bomb, that is too dangerous, and a small mistake will ruin everything. It is better if you hire a car, or if you take one from somewhere and drive into a crowd.”

In order to buy time, I explain that I do not have a driver’s licence. The instructor of Riaz Ahmadzai – the ISIS attacker from Würzburg – also wanted to talk him into a car attack. But Ahmadzai had no driver’s licence. In the end, he used an axe and injured five people on a regional train.

When I ask again whether he could help me build a bomb, D. – aka Mahmoud – becomes angry: “Look, the brother who did the attack in Ansbach only killed himself and no kuffar.”

Mohammed Daleel, who blew himself up in Ansbach, was repeatedly publicly celebrated by ISIS as a “martyr” and “soldier of the Islamic state”. In truth, however, the terror group’s instructors seem to regard the attack of the “noble knight” as a failed operation, because no “kuffar” were killed. However, ISIS would never publicly admit that, because it would damage the reputation of their “martyr”.

So D. tries to convince me of a different idea. “Today, a video will be released, inshallah, that will show you how to do various things. The video will explain to you in detail how to handle a knife.”

A few hours later, the official ISIS media department publishes a video from Raqqa. The video is among the most brutal things that the terror organisation has ever published.

    I understand one mans terrorist is anothers freedom fighter. I have some sympathy fighting for a cause, but humans taking out random women and children should be hunted down and taken out. The days of any religious intolerance that includes violence has no place on earth.

    Yellow journalism for the gullible, or, retarded.

    Here is another one you could easily relate to retard, from another era, but, you know, the more the things change, the more amerikan retards keep on swallowing the same old BS (with a new coat of paint of course).

    And fyi retard, amerika is one of the most violent and intolerant religious caliphates on earth-fact. texass alone has more bible-thumping, creationist simpletons per sq km than pretty much any other place on earth. When does hunting season start on religious whack jobs in texass retard?

    boat, I agree with you.

    Anon, you are spot on about America.

    “humans taking out random women and children should be hunted down and taken out.”

    Absolutely agree Kevin. They’re doing the best that they can with very limited resources. Taking out a multi trillion dollar military industrial complex isn’t exactly easy.

    US-led coalition killed more Syrian civilians than Isis or Russia in March, figures show

    In the same month, number of deaths from US air strikes across region soars as Russia scales back its operation

    Some how this is different right? What do you think the total number of civilians killed from US bombers is since they first got planes?

    Ap, the brainwashed Americans have no idea what their government is doing in their name and most don’t care as long as it doesn’t hurt them and their families.

    Sadly muslims may correctly argue that the US struck first. Obamas drone programme has killed many, many innocents, before that ALL OF IRAQ WAS ATTACKED FOR NO GOOD REASON! Al qeada is an offshoot of people who under colonial rule reasoned that western culture was inherently evil, people like Said Qutb, visited America and saw for himself in collage campuses the debauched lifestyle. This man and people, like him born in colonised countries undergoing de – colonisation came to hate western culture not only for its greed and sins but for its total support of Israel. Americas complete and total stupid error was to train these guys (most of them simple scholars) how to fight and organise and resist modern armies, and allowing Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to keep it going.

    In the case of culture clash, historically the more technologically advanced culture always either destroyed, or absorbed the lesser one. In this case the jihadists will either be destroyed, or become the thing that they hate the most!

  12. Hello on Mon, 31st Jul 2017 10:53 am 

    Short: outbreeding is a very effective way to beat even the most technologically advanced culture. And especially one that is as spineless and politically correct as the “west”.

    To understand the constant turmoil in the region through the lens of Waahabi intolerance as well as Sunni Shia schism, I recommend everyone to look at the graphic image of the sects in this post here. It is probably the best explanation for why this problem will never go away.

  14. FinanceBuff on Mon, 31st Jul 2017 8:29 pm 

    MartinBell – The analysis is very exhaustive. It is clear that these problems will never go away. They are here to remain. It is surprising that the two main risks in ARAMCO IPO are Dollar Unpeg and EV Vehicles acceleration. The good thing is that Saudis will have less money for their adventures.

    I wonder why terrorists are so stupid. They obviously do not want to do real damage – just a little publicity.

    To me that signal that this isnt a terrorist organisation, but a P.R. front for a social engineering organisation.

  16. boat on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 7:28 pm 


    When your enemy hides among supporters it’s hard to kill the ones with guns alone. If the US really wanted a bare earth policy this little conflict would have been over years ago. What you see now is the Trump effect. The next GW.

  17. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:11 pm 

    boat, when you do not even belong in the country you are bombing and it is NOT a threat to your homeland, YOU are the terrorist, not the people who live there.

    The U$ is the most hated country on earth and soon you will not be able to leave your U$ border without a fear of being killed. That’s call “blow back” and the U$ deserves all that is coming.

  18. onlooker on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:15 pm 

    Boat, Makati is right about the US. It is an utterly despised Empire and it richly deserves to be so. Makati lived here and I currently live here but neither of us is blinded by the incessant propaganda coming from the US media.
    What the US has done over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st is no less cruel and vicious than what the Roman empire did

  19. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:21 pm 

    “Any American who travels abroad is liable to run into a forthright foreigner who will tell them that the US government is the most hated institution on the planet.”

    “The war on terror has laid waste to large swaths of the Middle East and Northern Africa. Cities, towns, and villages have been reduced to smoking, bombed-out rubble, chaos reigns, the carnage is ubiquitous. The US military keeps count of its own personnel wounded and killed, a number in the thousands. Civilian casualties —or collateral damage as the military calls it—across Chaostan (Richard Maybury’s apt coinage) are in the millions, as are the number of people displaced (an estimated 11 million in Syria alone).

    Imagine the American fury and media sensationalism if a small US town was carpet-bombed by a foreign power. YouTube’s servers would melt from the overflow of viewers watching videos of parents pulling their dead children from collapsed homes.”

    “One of the biggest reasons why we are so easily controlled as a society is because our system of public education does not teach critical thinking skills to our young people. Instead, most educational time is spent on trying to memorize facts and figures that can be regurgitated when it is time to take a test. And any time that is spent on the “why questions” is usually spent forcing “progressive values” down the throats of our students. No wonder our young people are rapidly falling behind the rest of the industrialized world.

    “You can either follow the herd of you can decide to find your own path. One of the things that greatly frustrates me is that so many Americans allow other people to do their thinking for them. We have become a nation of sheeple, and the vast majority of the shepherds that we are relying on for guidance are frauds and imposters. The blind are leading the blind, and we are slowly but surely committing national suicide. If a lot more of us don’t start to learn to think for ourselves, I fear that the vast majority of the population will never wake up until it is far too late.”

    Baahhhh…. LMAO

    You ignore Isis/other religious groups in your own country. Does martial law ring a bell? Funny how your prez was asking rebel groups for help with the same religious killers dozens of countries fight. Do you think it’s ok? Killing in the name of anti drugs better or worse?

  21. Davy on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:29 pm 

    onlooker, give me a friggen break. Makat is an idiot that belongs in an old folks home with the other dementia suffers.

  22. onlooker on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:40 pm 

    No, Davy,his pet peeve might be the US but the accusations and appraisal are mostly spot on. Just think about all the lives that have been uprooted in the build up of Western Capitalism and influence. Think of the slave trade, the American Indians, the countless number around the world who live lives unworthy truly of a human being, that is the price of Capitalism and of a relatively minor percentage of the world population living conformtable affluent lifestyles. Who has been the champion of Capitalism, whose Corporations were the pioneers of building this Globalized world, whose military paved the way for all this by not just force but by the sale of weapons. You know and I know it is the US. I am not accusing the citizens of all this but the Govt and its minions and the penury interests who are the real power like the Banks and Corporations. So Makati is not senile

  23. Davy on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 8:54 pm 

    Sorry, onlooker but you are getting sucked into the board extremism. You are focusing on the US instead of seeing a global phenomenon. Who has championed the globalized world you say? We all have onlooker. Pretty much the whole world is a profit motive. If you don’t see that and you want to think it is all the US fault then you are off in the deep end with your mentor makat. Yes, the US is now at the front of the line of bad no arguments there but the rest of the world is real close. If you can’t see that you are getting lost. When you first came here to this board you were balanced but today it is a different story. It is pity because you have a good head on your shoulder. Now you off in the blame and complain world of makat and his gang of dung dwellers.

  24. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 11:29 pm 

    Boat, if your kid was hooked on drugs, and you knew who did it, wouldn’t YOU want to take them out? The drug problem is rampant in America. Even more so than in the Ps. But a “War on Drugs” has only brought more profits to the corporations and more drugs into the U$ Obviously, TPTB don’t want to win the war. It is too profitable.

    Duterte is doing it the correct way. Turn yourself in or die. Death is the ONLY way to deal with the problem. And if a few get killed by mistake … well, that is worth the cost. America calls that “collateral damage” when they kill millions of innocents (women and children) in their wars of choice. What is the difference? It’s ok for America but not for anyone else? Hypocrites!

  25. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 11:30 pm 

    Potty mouth Davy is on line again. LMAO

  26. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 11:32 pm 

    Davy, does that narrow mind cause you pain? It seems to. You cannot ignore ANYONE who disagrees with your 1%er skewed viewpoint. So sad.

  27. Makati1 on Tue, 1st Aug 2017 11:39 pm 

    BTW: Onlooker is one of the few here with an open mind in regards to the U$. Americans like to point fingers (“You are focusing on the US instead of seeing a global phenomenon) instead of looking on the mirror. The U$ has keep some part of the world at war since at least 1914. Profiting from all of them. So, YES it does own the majority of the blame. And, the American voters are NOT innocent. They allow and pay for the plunder and killing. Greed, narcissistic, spoiled brats all.

  28. GregT on Wed, 2nd Aug 2017 12:27 am 

    “narcissistic, spoiled brats all.”

    Not all Makati. That wouldn’t be fair to the tens of millions of decent US Americans like Onlooker and yourself.

  29. Makati1 on Wed, 2nd Aug 2017 1:03 am 

    GregT, I was one of those narcissistic, spoiled brats before I learned the truth about America. I regret those days, but I cannot change them. All I can do is watch them suffer the consequences of all those years of gullibility. I tried to wake up my family, but they told me they didn’t want to know, in so many words.

    Any American that is so busy with their social lives and guzzling of the government Koolaid that they ignore what is obvious to any rational, thinking person, deserves the title. There is no excuse for anyone who has access to the internet to be so fooled by their government. None. They WANT to believe. THEY want the goodies that come from the plunder and death or they would rise up and do a “French Revolution” style event. But, they will not. At least, not until it is too late. I do not pity them. I pity those that have suffered because of what Americans have allowed to be done in their name.

    No, there are no innocents under the age of 18 in America. None.

  30. Davy on Wed, 2nd Aug 2017 5:56 am 

    makati, you are an ex American narcissistic spoiled brat that specializes in a devious kind of hateful hypocrisy. Your best friends here are the same but less extreme. You are the ringleader probably because you are a lonely old man needing attention. Being an extreme anti-American is popular and you love being popular. You guys are extremist that cherry pick facts and pressure the board with this anti-American program of extremism. You guys talk trash but don’t live with yours. That is the definition of people living a lie. makat, when you go off line normality returns and good balanced discussions occur. When you are here it becomes a circle jerk of hate and discontent with extreme views and opinionated character assassinations. You guys are disgusting and the reason I am here daily defending decency and the truth.
