Report: ISIS Factions in Crisis Over Internal Reign of Terror

Friday, 06 February 2015 02:29 PM EST

The Islamic State (ISIS) is not one big happy family as the barbarians behead hostages, enslave women and slaughter disbelievers all in the name of Allah.

They are literally, in fact, at each other’s throats with an internal reign of terror that appears to be growing by the day, according to The Daily Beast.

Behind the scenes, ISIS factions are constantly arguing over the spoils of war, who gets the most attractive women as slaves and brides, and even the handling of foreign hostages like the recent cases of the Jordanian and Japanese captives.

The Daily Beast’s Jamie Dettmer says his information about the bloodletting among the Islamic State fighters has emerged from political activists in northern Syria, including members of the group called Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, which has good sources inside the terror army’s capital of Raqqa,

Commanders in the Aleppo Operations Room, which coordinates the efforts of the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army and other factions aimed at defeating the Islamic State, says there have been several defections from the extremist group, especially among militants who have been chosen for suicide-bomb missions.

"There is a lot of mutual suspicion among the commanders," says Mohammed, an FSA battle leader in Aleppo. "We tried to exchange some information with an ISIS commander recently and within days he was executed."

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that an Islamic State cleric in Aleppo province who denounced the evil regime for burning Jordanian pilot Muadh al Kasasbeh to death has been arrested by the Islamic State and will be put on trial.

The Saudi-born imam said those responsible for the barbaric videotaped murder should be the ones on trial, reported The Daily Beast.

Independent Syrian media claimed that Abu Talha al-Kuwaiti, the head of the al Hisba police force in Raqqa, which is responsible for the enforcement of Sharia law, fled after trying to mount a coup.

But Slaughtered Silently activists say al-Kuwaiti and several of his supporters took flight after an earlier internal squabble had led to the execution of their patron, the governor of the Raqqa, who went by the name Abu Ayyub al-Ansari.

Raqqa activists have told the political website that North African jihadists are among the most disgruntled fighters, while complaining they receive less than Gulf Arabs, Europeans, and Chechens who are paid up to $1,000 a month as members of the Islamic State army.

The Africans are also angry that they’re also missing out when women slaves and jihadi brides are handed out. And they allege that they are placed first in the firing line during battles, especially during the recent fight for Kobani.

The Daily Beast said that last week four Tunisian recruits were executed as traitors in Raqqa’s Rumaila region, according to opposition activists. And two other Tunisians, possibly along with family members, were also executed in the Eddekhar neighborhood of Raqqa.

According to the report, the arguments over the fate of the Jordanian pilot and two Japanese captives angered Raqqa security officials, who have started to eradicate fighters when they question whether the Islamic State should be applying Sharia law as a reason for the executions.

"The quarrels and executions trigger more cycles of revenge as commanders and groups compete and jockey for power and survival," wrote Dettmer.
