Florida Republican Senator Marcio Rubio responded to the video by stating, “I remain deeply concerned that despite the preponderance of evidence that proves ISIL is a fundamentally evil and dangerous terrorist threat to the United States, President Obama continues to appear unwilling to do what is necessary to confront ISIL and communicate clearly to the American people about the threat ISIL poses to our country and to our way of life.”
In the video, Foley stated before his beheading, “I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers — the U.S. government” because U.S. bombings in Iraq this month “signed my death certificate.”
That is not the real complaint of Islamic jihadist. Their problem is the existence of the United States and Western values.
Hamas has as a similar problem with Israel.
With the ISIS stated threat to “destroy the American cross,” perhaps the Obama administration and the general media establishment and liberal Americans with their heads in the sand will realize that the peace process is not such a brilliant solution when it hits home.
All of the noise about Islamists wanting to create a Muslim Caliphate in the Middle East is par with Hitler’s having said he only wanted to annex Austria and Hungary.
An animal that preys on life has an endless appetite.
Israel knows that very well.
The United States does not, but it soon will.
One Islamic state terrorist told Reuters this year, “The West are idiots and fools. They think we are waiting for them to give us visas to go and attack them or that we will attack with our beards or even Islamic outfits.
“They think they can distinguish us these days. They are fools and, more than that, they don’t know we can play their game in intelligence. They infiltrated us with those who pretend to be Muslims and we have also penetrated them with those who look like them.”
Masrour Barzani, head of the Kurdish region’s National Security Council, recently told Reuters, “Many of the members of [Islamic State] that have come from abroad have come from Europe, from the U.S., from the Middle East and North Africa – all over the world.
“These are people that are not going to die in battles in Iraq and Syria. Many of these people will go back to their countries of origin, becoming potential leaders or terrorist operatives, which could really become a bigger threat to their own countries.”
Anyone who walks the streets in Europe, outside of the usual tourist sites, knows that fundamental Islam has conquered some countries and is on the way to becoming the dominant force in Britain and France..
Their leaders are too scared to fight back. It is too late.
Instead, they are modern Chamberlains. For example, French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday proposed an international conference to discuss what to do about ISIS.
Keep talking and there won’t be anything to talk about.
When beheadings come too close to home for comfort, you don’t talk.. You shoot to kill and don’t worry about “civilian casualties” forced to stand in front of terrorists.
“If they [ISIS] can blow up a suicide bomber in Times Square this afternoon, they’ll do it,” Al Qaeda expert Jamal Khashoggi told Reuters,
“But we have to admit that they are targeting all of us. If they can launch a terrorist attack in Riyadh, New York or London, they’ll do that.”
Kerry said Wednesday, after the video was authenticated as real, “There is evil in this world, and we all have come face to face with it once again. Ugly, savage, inexplicable, nihilistic, and valueless evil. ISIL is the face of that evil, a threat to people who want to live in peace, and an ugly insult to the peaceful religion they violate every day with their barbarity.”
