Obama Decides that ISIS Does not Speak for Islam

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

President Barack Obama has pontificated that the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) does not speak for Islam.

ISIS “speaks for no religion,” said the President, who doubles as de facto Secretary of Islamic Defense.

How does he know ISIS does not speak for Islam? He explains, “Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.”

America’s expert on religion apparently never learned about the Crusades, nor does he know that leading Christian leaders justify killing homosexuals because they are deemed a threat to Christianity.

“ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings,” Obama continued, taking time off from his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard to explain that ISIS’s radical Islamic ideology is “bankrupt,” an implied assumption that bankrupt ideology does not speak for anyone.

Perhaps Hitler did not speak for Germans?

Responding to the ISIS’s beheading of American photojournalist James Foley, President Obama continued, “ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant while ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria. The aims and objectives of ISIS/ISIL are clear – establish an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East and eventually a global caliphate. That global caliphate includes The White House. This means purifying Islam. Those Muslims who are deemed insufficiently Muslim will be killed….

“One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.”

What constitutes someone speaking for a religion? There are no lack of usurpers who challenge the authority of Judaism and Christianity. Each faith has many sects that are not recognized by each other, but who, except for Obama, decides what religious leader speaks for Judaism or Christianity.

The answer, outside of the Vatican and Israel where religion and state are intertwined as a matter of self-survival, lies in valid surveys.

A 9/11/13 Pew Survey revealed that a “median of 57% across the 11 Muslim publics surveyed hold an unfavorable view” of Al Qaeda. That is a polite way of saying that 43 percent of Muslim dis not state an unfavorable view of the terrorist network.

A Gallup poll in 2008 stated that 36.6 percent of the world’s approximately 1.8 Muslims partially, totally, or in some way justified the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

In numbers, that means approximately 600,000,000 Muslims are roaming the world with radical Islamic views.

Not all of them, and perhaps a small minority of them, are ISIS enthusiasts. Many more are big on Al Qaeda, Taliban, Hezbollah the Army of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood and its offspring Hamas.

If the definition of ISIS radicalism is beheading and establishing an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East, these groups are not far apart, unless Obama preaches that their ideology is no less bankrupt than suicide bombers who blow up women and children, and Hamas executions who shoot people in the head and the back, drag their bodies in the street and cart off body parts of Israel soldiers as souvenirs or booty for ransom.

Hamas = ISIS [video]

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

A fascinating exchange is going on in the Twitterverse.

Hamas’s online Jihadi supporters and groupies are desperately trying to differentiate between their support for Hamas and supporting ISIS. It appears that supporting ISIS, even among these radicals, is not yet 100% acceptable (but give it a year, and it will be), probably because of the beheading.

An example of someone tweeting the difference between Hamas and ISIS.

An example of someone tweeting the difference between Hamas and ISIS.

When confronted by pro-Israel Twitter activists comparing Hamas to ISIS, the affronted Hamas Jihadi supporters try to backpedal and claim that Hamas and ISIS are not similar at all, and they don’t support ISIS, only Hamas.

The primary proof they’ve use is that ISIS is expansionist, and Hamas (they claim) isn’t.

In reality, besides the color of their flags, its impossible to really differentiate between the two.

Both want to create Islamic states. Both brutally murder, torture and oppress their political and religious opponents and citizens. Both use and brutalize children. Both drag dead bodies (they killed) through the streets. Both hate Israel. Both promote Jihad. Both are Islamic.

In truth, the online Jihadi supporters raise an important point. There is one fundamental difference between the two terror organizations / Islamic states.

ISIS is interested in setting up a Global Caliphate, whereas Hamas would be satisfied with setting up an Islamic state only where the State of Israel exists today.

So, could it then be that the fundamental difference is not actually between Hamas and ISIS, but rather with these Hamas supporters?

These Jihadi supporters only want the Jews and Israel destroyed, but don’t necessarily want an Islamic Caliphate in their own backyard (NIMBY).

Apparently, even the Red-Green alliance (Radical Left + Islam) has its limits.

These social media activists don’t seem to grasp that their double-standard political position (only kill the Jews, but not the whole world) is not as morally superior as they think it is.

 

Video: Hamas prefers cutting off legs, not heads (and that makes Hamas morally superior?)

 

Here’s Prime Minister Netanyahu also comparing ISIS to HAMAS:

ISIS Kidnaps Four European Hostages

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Islamic State terrorists have seized four more foreign journalists and aid workers, two of them Italian women, bring to more than 24 the number of hostages they are holding, presumably alive for the time being.

The terrorists, still described as “militants” by wire services, abducted their victims in Aleppo or Idlib in western Syria and have moved them to the ISIS stronghold in the north.

ISIS terrorists this year have freed at least 10 kidnap victims after receiving a ransom.

One of the abductors of a British citizen who later was freed was the same terrorist who appeared as the executioner of James Foley in the video posted by ISIS, showing the masked killer beheading Foley, a journalist.

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.

US Adds ISIS-Linked Gaza Terror Group to Foreign Terror List

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

The U.S. State Department has declared the Mujahedeen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC) to be a foreign terrorist organization.

The MSC is an umbrella organization comprised of Gaza-based global jihad terror organizations connected to Al Qaeda. It is also linked to the Islamic State — also known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State in the Levant).

The group has claimed responsibility for the August 2013 missile attack on the resort city of Eilat, and for a March 2013 attack on Sderot.

Report: ‘Hundreds’ of Anti-Aircraft Weapons in Syrian Terrorist Hands

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

A Swiss research group has published a report that explains why the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has banned U.S. flights through Syria air space.

The Switzerland-based Small Arms Survey research organization released a report Tuesday warning that armed terror groups in Syria possess portable anti-aircraft weapons.

The weapons present a risk to aircraft like Malaysia Airlines Flight #17, which was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, allegedly by pro-Russian separatist rebels.

The Swiss group analyzes the global flow of weapons. It estimated the terrorists have access to several hundred of the anti-aircraft missiles.

Its report focused on launchers and missiles known as “man-portable air defense systems,” or MANPADS, which are dangerous to aircraft upon takeoff and departure, and that fly at lower altitudes.

The weapons could also easily be smuggled to other terrorist organizations, the group noted.

The revelation raises red flags for neighboring Israel, already on alert due to incidents in which Syrian mortar and gunfire have been aimed at its northern region.

The Islamic State — formerly known as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) — has been operating in Syria for some time. The group has conquered wide swathes of territory both there and in Iraq, including two border crossings between Iraq and Syria, and one border crossing between Iraq and Jordan.

It is alsos not clear which group has possession of the anti-aircraft weaponry.

The report was released just hours after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had banned all U.S. flights from flying in Syrian air space.

Armed extremists in Syria are “known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft,” the FAA stated in its notice. In previous alerts, the FAA had warned against flying over Syria but had not issued an outright ban.
