ISIS Beheadings Mark Declared War on the United States

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

President Barack Obama is “appalled” and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is angry at the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley, whose execution was posted in an online video by his killers, the Islamic State ISIS group also known as ISIS.

While the United States, Britain and other Western countries professed their shock, actually believing that these grisly acts only happen to other Muslims and African Christians but never to Americans, except Daniel Pearl.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu showed Wednesday night that Israel is a lot more tuned into reality.

In his address to the country in which he promised that Israel will not stop the war against Hamas until total quiet is restored, he compared Hamas with ISIS.

If you are surprised, you are dreaming.

Beheading someone is savage. It is an act of an animal who wants to inject fear into the hearts of souls of decent people.

Hamas also has beheaded people, mainly those Gazans who hate the terrorist regime and took the risk to relay intelligence information to Israel on Hamas.

Beheading is gory but no less than Hamas terrorists’ primitive behavior after they killed Israeli soldiers and blew them to bits and pieces.

Hamas animals, AKA terrorists, actually picked up body parts, a head here and a finger there, and hustled them off through terror tunnels with the intention of using them to barter with Israel for the return of terrorists in Israeli custody.

The two families of two soldiers whose body parts were not recovered or were only partially recovered did not fall into the trap that would have undermined Israel’s war effort. They buried their sons with whatever body parts there were, and in one case there were virtually none.

Once the soldiers were buried, the Hamas animals’ plans were foiled.

An animal is an animal, or if you prefer, a terrorist is a terrorist, but the United States still doesn’t get it.

U.S. State Dept. assistant spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters Wednesday that despite Netanyahu’s statement that Hamas and ISIS are look-alikes, they cannot be compared.

Of course not. ISIS is not a potential peace partner for Israel, but Hamas is.

President Barack Obama said the world was “appalled” by the beheading of Foley in Syria and that “the United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. .We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.”

Wow, isn’t that scary?

Americans security officials verified the authenticity of the video showing the beheading after the recorded marks by Foley that the United States and the West are to blame for his imminent death because of their “complacent criminality” that he said is the cause of his death.

The video showed another American journalist Steven Sotloff, and warns that he will be the next to die.

If words could kill, Obama slaughtered ISIS, calling it a “cancer” and stating, “No faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by people who build and not destroy.”

Now what?

The ISIS video warned that the “next move” is up to Obama.

An hour after Obama spoke, the U.S. Air Force carried out 14 bombing raids on ISIS targets.

It is a bit late for that.

The United States has spent two decades making the Middle East safe for democracy by sending American troops all over the place and undermining autocratic but stable regimes so that can be replaced by autocratic and unstable regimes that have left a vacuum of power grabbed by terrorists, or animals.

4 Beheaded Victims Found in Sinai

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Signs that Islamic State (ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) terrorists have arrived in Egypt seem to have appeared just a few kilometers from Israel and Gaza: four beheaded bodies were found Wednesday in the Sinai Peninsula.

Security personnel in Sinai and Cairo said residents in Sheikh Zuweid discovered the disfigured bodies two days after the victims were kidnapped by armed terrorists while traveling through town in a car.

All four victims were civilians but it is believed they may have been targeted due to possible loyalty to local police or the military, the sources said. Their identity was not revealed, and their murderers were suspected terrorists battling against the Cairo government.

Amb. Power Puts Huge Foot in Mouth with ‘Cycle of Violence’ Comment

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Posted by Samantha Power on Twitter:

@AmbassadorPower

Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability & reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence. @DanielPearlFNDN

Last night, the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations, the Daniel Pearl Foundation and the Yitzhak Rabin Hillel Center for Jewish Life at UCLA proudly presented the 2013-14 Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture, featuring Samantha Power, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, with an introduction by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Dignified, right? Black tie? Check. Very clear right and wrong – check. So what happened?

In one instant, in a flash of unintended honesty, Ambassador Powers showed she learned absolutely nothing, but I mean zero, zilch, nada, from the Daniel Pearl tragedy. She showed that she is as unqualified to give the Daniel Pearl annual speech as, I don’t know, Noam Chomsky, maybe.

Daniel Pearl is in the category of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria kind of historical figures, whose life’s achievements tend to be blurred over the years, until, eventually, they are remembered only for their final few moments. The Archduke will be forever remembered as the man whose assassination by a radical in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914, ushered in the First World War.

Daniel Pearl was the Wall Street Journal brave hearted reporter who was kidnapped and executed by a jihadist group calling itself the National Movement for the Restoration of Pakistani Sovereignty. Pearl was decapitated on video after 9 days of captivity. He will be forever honored for his unabashed statement, on camera: “My name is Daniel Pearl, I am an American Jew.”

Millions of us have been deeply disturbed by the Daniel Pearl murder. It touched so many previously universal assumptions and turned them upside down: the assumption that no one wants to hurt the press, since everybody wants good press for themselves – wrong; the assumption that when criminals are showing their victims on video it is to extract some kind of ransom, and so as long as the video is running, the victim is safe – wrong; and, of course, the ultimate assumption, that every enemy has a cause over which we can eventually bargain with them, until we meet half way – really, really wrong.

The fact is, millions of us have walked away from the Daniel Pearl execution with the universal conviction that the only way to go now must be to annihilate these bastards, until they’re all dead and gone. It was a Churchill in Dunkirk moment, following which the old bulldog gave his heroic “we shall fight them on the beaches” speech. Just as there was no possibility to negotiate with Hitler in 1940, there’s no negotiating with the jihadists. They are enemies of humanity and must all be exterminated – that’s what the entire civilized world took from the Pearl beheading.

Well, not the entire civilized world, as it turns out.

I don’t have a copy of what U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samantha Power told the good folks at UCLA last night. She probably touched all the bases. But I do have her tweets in front of me, and they’re stunning.

The first one is totally on the money, no problem there:

We must be vigilant in protecting the rights of the press. 2013 = 2nd highest # of journalist deaths and arrests all-time. @DanielPearlFNDN

To those of you who don’t speak fluent Tweet, Powers is citing herself at the foundation speech, giving her followers the gist of her message. And, of course, it’s unacceptable that close allies of the United States, such as Turkey and the Palestinian Authority, have been detaining journalists, photographers and even people making unflattering Facebook entries.

She was called on it, of course, by a few of her Tweeter followers:

RDPinRVA: That’s pretty rich coming from an appointee of an administration committed to limiting the press’ freedom.

Casey Kim: You’re part of the same administration who just suggested brining in the FCC to monitor newsrooms.
