WAR ON TERROR – NEXT ROUND

The next round has begun. Citing the fact that ISIS or ISIL and related jihadi groups were about to launch attacks against the West – some of which would target passenger planes – the US and several allies launched, at this writing, nearly 200 attacks against the terrorists. One group, Khorasan, was said to be approaching the “execution phase”. The Daily Mail reported that the terrorists “planned to attack using bombs without metal parts, toothpaste tubes and clothes dipped in explosives.” The threat is very real – even if the CIA was somewhat complicit in creating this ISIS enemy, much as they did al-Qaeda. The Blaze TV’s For the Record documents the willingness and ability of ISIS fighters to launch terror attacks against the US. We’ve documented how ISIS forces have seized stocks of Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons (which didn’t exist). They’ve expressed a willingness and even an eagerness to use these weapons against the US. The US southern border is an open sieve where massive amounts of drugs enter every month – and the terrorists have remarked on their vulnerability. They have fighters with Western passports. And they have $2 billion dollars to effect the movement of people and explosives and WMDs across said border.[i] NowSaudi Arabia, Jordan, the UAE and Bahrain joined in the attacks against the terrorists which were deemed to be largely successful, killing around 120 fighters in sorties against hideouts, camps and other targets.[ii] Another round of strikes targeted small oil refineries in eastern Syria, operated by ISIS to provide them with both fuel for their vehicles and about $2 million per day in profits.[iii]

President Obama’s characterization of the attacks was….interesting…… to say the least. He told the assembled delegates at the UN that “ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim…. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” The President went on to assert that the terrorists had “perverted one of the world’s great religions.” World Net Daily quotes the website Answering Islam to give the lie to such claims. “Muhammad used to send letters to the kings and leaders of the surrounding countries and tribes, inviting them to surrender to his authority and to believe in him as the messenger of Allah, He always ended his letters with the following two words: ‘Aslim, Taslam!’ Although these two words are derived from the same infinitive Salama which is the root of Salam, i.e. ‘Peace,’ neither one of them implies the meaning of ‘peace.’ The sentence means ‘surrender and you will be safe,’ or in other words, ‘surrender or face death.’” World Net Daily reports that in just one week this September, “there were 58 jihad attacks around the world, with 419 victims.”[iv] [v] Thus again: The Religion of Peace
