Fifteen and a half minute video from Furat which is in parts a re-run of previous videos. The title is from the Quaran verse 5:50, “they desire and want this and ignore Allah’s Judgement.”
Iraq is nearing elections with seven thousand candidates competing for three hundred and twenty-nine seats on May 12. The pressure will be ramped up by Daesh in an attempt to destabilise and contort the process no doubt with suicide bombing and general mayhem.
Some of the video is taken from other releases which make up the quick fire editing and scenes of hudud being performed.
It’s all about the money.
Twenty two minute video from Sinai which from the beginning one would be forgiven for thinking they were watching a nature video which is an introduction to a string of roadside IED’s and ambush attacks on soldiers.
In the final few minutes cars(taxi) are stopped and the passengers executed, shop keepers are attacked and executed for selling Sharia non-compliant items, such as tobacco.
The release underlines the problems in the region as highlighted by the inclusion of the political machinations since the Arab Spring with the Muslim Brotherhood’s loss of political leverage.

“The First Rain – The Raid of Barcelona” is a short three minute release from Khayr made up of media reports interspersed with a bearded, finger pointing rant.

The Australian Government TRAC has released a risk assessment report “Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment” (pdf). The key statistics on Store Value Cards or as the report “SVC”.
SVC’s or ‘Stored Value Cards’, allow money to be debited or payed into an electronic account and the used just like a VISA or other credit card, to purchase goods, particularly over internet retail services. The SVC’s are often bought through ‘on-selling’ of goods, buying and then quickly selling. The proceeds of the “on-sold” goods is then used to buy more SVC cards from which the PIN code is then sent to recipients who withdraw cash money from automatic teller machines or cash points.
This type of finance model which is used to supply Daesh, or “sponsor soldiers” has been a subject for previous reports such as the 2015 FATF Report (pdf)
And, 2012 report from the Australian Treasury (pdf).
The disruption and degradation of finances reaching Daesh will be a major factor towards the final depreciation of their existence. Without a cash flow Daesh will fall into anarchy and dissolve like splinter crystals in acid.

“How smart ATMs and a coding error caused a massive mistake.” (ABC)
“The Commonwealth Bank is embroiled in a scandal that may have allowed terrorists and criminals to launder millions of dollars.
AUSTRAC, Australian’s financial spy agency, filed its case against the CBA last week, (Aug – 3- 2017), alleging it failed to report 53,506 transactions.
They are known as TTRs, or “threshold transaction reports”.
Basically, banks have to let AUSTRAC know within 10 business days if it processes a transaction of $10,000 or more.
So how did it happen?
The CBA says it all comes down to a “software error” in the bank’s smart ATMs.”
