SPECIAL NEWS REPORT
The Quilliam Foundation, based in London, states that it “is the world’s first counter-extremism think tank set up to address the unique challenges of citizenship, identity, and belonging in a globalised world. Quilliam stands for religious freedom, equality, human rights and democracy. Challenging extremism is the duty of all responsible members of society. Not least because cultural insularity and extremism are products of the failures of wider society to foster a shared sense of belonging and to advance liberal democratic values. With Islamist extremism in particular, we believe a more self-critical approach must be adopted by Muslims.”
They inform us that they employ “people of all faiths and no faith background. Terrorism impacts us all – Quilliam believes all sections of society need to pull together to win the battle of ideas against extremism.”
Earlier today, Quilliam realised an exclusive report titled “Alleged Leaks From Islam State Reveal International Network of Bribery.” They state:
“On 13 November 2014, an individual (or individuals) operating under an anti-Islamic State (IS) Twitter handle released a series of Arabic-language tweets that contained intel that, it is claimed, came from the top levels of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s political machinery. It is impossible to independently verify this information, but its implications, if true, are profound. In an exclusive briefing, Quilliam has translated these alleged leaks into English.
“In the past, this user has been a valuable source of intelligence regarding Islamic State (and ISIS before it). Indeed, the account in question has been credited with revealing a significant amount of extremely sensitive information about IS and its inner-workings that was a closely guarded secrets before it was leaked. It is important to note that the source, while it clearly disagrees with IS’ modus operandi, does share its jihadist ideology and, hence, the intel it releases is motivated by a very particular agenda. That does not, however, mean it should be dismissed in its entirety.
“As will be seen, the claims the source makes are deeply significant. While it is impossible to independently corroborate this information, it is worthy of circulation. It is suggested that the IS leadership is more fragmented than first meets the eye, and has been engaged in an international outreach campaign in order to better its jihadist reputation, one which has involved the attempted bribery of jihadist ideologues like Abu Qatada al-Filistini (deported to Jordan from the UK in 2013) and Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi as well as the leaders of, among others, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. If these claims are true, it renders evident a level of desperation for IS that has, hitherto, not been publicly known.“
