Does it not grow tiring to hear the talking heads speak out of both sides of their mouths? They fawn and gush over Hamas but hate the despicable acts of the ISIS terrorists. Newsflash – the two groups are practically mirror images of each other; the difference is one has been successful and one has not.
I’m also getting tired of reporting the horrors being carried about by ISIS terrorists because of the impotency of the Obama White House. I am not one to argue for expanded American missions around the globe – just the opposite; I believe it would be in our best interests to cut back on our involvement around the planet. However, in Iraq and Syria we face an evil similar to the Nazi scourge faced by our ancestors leading into WWII. Again, there is a difference.
Back then the American public did not realize the full weight of the evil residing in Europe. They didn’t understand that the Nazis were committing the most heinous crime of the 20th Century. They didn’t know about the ovens, the execution squads, the mass graves or the torture chambers of Nazi “doctors.” If they had, how do you think the “Greatest Generation” would have responded?
There are moments in history when basic moral decency cries out, and those who can respond, must. This is one of those times.
Just a couple of days ago President Obama decided that the American airstrikes on ISIS positions had done the damage intended and the people trapped on Mount Sinjar would now be safe. Because of this, he chose to end the air assault on ISIS and only use the strikes from here on out to protect American interests and positions in the region. Then he said exactly this to the entire world…
Two things were borne from this news out of the President mouth.
The first was a massacre. ISIS used the break from American bombs to slaughter almost 100 men in one village and at least 500 people in the surrounding area. Not only did ISIS slaughter at least 100 men in one village, but they also spent time capturing, raping and carrying off the women and children who were left behind as well.
An informed source in Mosul, speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat on condition of anonymity, said that ISIS had killed all Yazidi men in the villages it had besieged around Sinjar after a deadline for them to convert to Islam expired. “[ISIS fighters also] raped the women and girls, and took the children to Mosul,” he added.
The second effect of President Obama’s speech was that the leaders of ISIS chose to flee Iraq and head back into Syria, where they were assured safety from American bombs by the President himself!
“According to our intelligence sources, Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi traveled to Syria as part of a convoy of 30 Hummer vehicles after fearing being targeted by US airstrikes,” Zinni said. He added that Kurdish Peshmerga forces have been able to kill a number of ISIS senior leaders.
In Syria, the leaders of ISIS feel they will be safe from American attack because there is no threat to American interests there. So Al-Baghdadi, the coward, is hiding a safe distance from the American threat.
My fellow Americans, we are facing the gravest threat to humanity since the fascist Nazi and Soviet Communist plagues: the threat of Islamic terrorism.
After a decade of losing to us on the battlefields and in their cities, the terrorists have turned to softer targets… the non-radicals in their own countries. If they succeed in destroying all opposition within their own borders, we will soon be facing national terrorist armies… not just the rabble we see today.
We must cut this threat off before it spreads.
Make no mistake; ISIS (and their ilk) is a grave threat to humanity. Like their brothers in Hamas, they love death.
“Today you [Israelis] are fighting divine soldiers, who love death for Allah like you love life, and who compete among themselves for Martyrdom like you flee from death,” said Hamas Chief of Staff Muhammad Deif…
“We love death like our enemies love life!” he said. “We love martyrdom, the way in which [Hamas] leaders died.” — Former Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.
