Obama Delivers Empty Rhetoric About ISIS

Mark Tapson, a Hollywood-based writer and screenwriter, is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. He focuses on the politics of popular culture.


obamaPresident Obama took time out from his busy social schedule to present a statement Wednesday afternoon on the ISIS (or ISIL) beheading of a kidnapped American photojournalist. It was unsurprisingly full of empty rhetoric without any reference to action.

He began by announcing that “the entire world is appalled” by the murder of James Wright Foley – or as Obama referred to him repeatedly and familiarly, “Jim” (this has to be the first speech by Obama in which he referred to someone else more often than himself). Foley’s murder was “an act of violence that shocks the conscience of the entire world.” I don’t believe the President of the United States is authorized to speak for the entire world, but in any case there is a significant portion of the world that not only wasn’t shocked but has no conscience about the butchering of infidels, and that’s the problem that needs to be addressed.

But first, Obama eulogized Foley: “Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother, and a friend.” Such an intimate, even maudlin statement would be entirely suitable among friends and relatives at a funeral service but is frankly unworthy of a presidential announcement to the world. But Obama wasn’t done expressing his unconvincing grief: “All of us feel the ache of his absence. All of us mourn his loss.” Apparently Obama mourns by heading straight to the links for another round of golf, because that’s what he did immediately after he delivered this statement.

“We keep in our prayers those other Americans who are separated from their families,” he continued. Like U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who remains jailed in Mexico and has been separated from his family since late March? Keeping him in one’s prayers is a nice gesture but is no substitute for the President of the United States actually lifting a finger to bring that Marine home, something Obama hasn’t done.

He moved on to address the monsters behind Foley’s beheading and countless other sick atrocities. “Let’s be clear about ISIL,” said Obama, although we know by now that anytime Obama declares that he’s going to be clear about something, he’s just posturing at sounding authoritative. He acknowledged that “they have rampaged across cities and villages, killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children, and subject them to torture and rape and slavery.” Then he purposefully notes that they have murdered Muslims by the thousands and “target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can for no other reason than they practice a different religion.”

Yes – a religion different from Islam, but Obama didn’t make that connection. Instead, he declared that “ISIL speaks for no religion.” No? The Islamic State speaks for no religion? “Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” His language here is disingenuous, because of course Muslim fundamentalists have a different definition of “innocent” from ours, and they have never had a problem slaughtering less orthodox Muslims. “No just God would stand for what they did yesterday… ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings.”

He’s correct about that last part, and that the ideology is “nihilistic,” but he never says what that ideology is, only that it’s “bankrupt.” Is it bankrupt if it’s gaining adherents daily who are fanatically committed to the elimination of Western civilization? Obama claims that this undefined “ideology” has nothing to offer but “endless slavery to their empty vision, and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.” No argument there, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to implode on its own for lack of true believers. Too many feel that Islam has a very compelling vision, and that it is Western freedom that enslaves.

“People like this ultimately fail,” Obama declared with unfounded optimism. “They fail, because the future is won by those who build and not destroy.” Oh? Where is this guarantee written in stone? Because in the real world good doesn’t always win; history belongs to “the strong horse,” as bin Laden once put it, and right now ISIS and their ilk are far more confident than we are about to whom the future belongs. Of one thing we can be certain: the forces of evil and annihilation will win if “those who build” don’t get their civilized ass in gear and eradicate this nihilistic “ideology.”

And yet ultimately, Obama’s statement mentioned not a single action item, only pompous rhetoric: “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. When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.” Is there anyone here and abroad who still believes that America under Obama relentlessly protects and seeks justice for her citizens? Need I mention Benghazi?

Obama went on to urge the governments and people of the Middle East to unite in “a common effort to extract this cancer, so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of these kinds of nihilistic ideologies.” Yes, there has to be, but what is the President of the United States going to do to ensure that? “One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.” ISIS begs to differ. They believe it is America that has no place in the 21st century.

Before rushing off to the golf course, Obama closed with the vague promise “to confront this hateful terrorism and replace it with a sense of hope and civility. We will do everything that we can to protect our people and the timeless values that we stand for.”

ISIS’ boastful response? “We will drown you in blood.”

    • JB Ziggy Zoggy

      Yes he is. Obama will do whatever he can to keep ISIS in power over its new state. Dropping care packages, blowing up some trucks, liberating the Mosul dam, and spouting empty rhetoric does nothing to destroy ISIS or even drive it out of its new “Caliphate. After all, he didn’t help put them there just to drive them out.

    murdering them when they can for no other reason than they practice a different religion.

    Damn…he is the second back to back President that lies about Islam to the American people. GWB falsely proclaimed Islam to be a so-called “religion of peace” and then launched a fantasy based war against terrorism, which inevitably turned into one of the greatest fiascos in the history of America. Since first of all, Muslims are not terrorists, but jihadists instead waging holy war against all infidels and second of all, lifting up Muslims is analogous to lifting up our eternal mortal enemies, as all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, either of the violent variety or the non-violent variety, per the dictates of Islam. Not to mention that not targeting the ideology that drives it, i.e., Islam, is insane.

    Now like GWB, Obama also lies to the American people about Islam too. Not only that, but like GWB as well, he is also enabling non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad right here in America, as mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage in essence is non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the long term strategic purposes of mass Muslim infiltration of our society and for eventual demographic conquest. Especially when you consider the fact that Muslim immigrants never ever assimilate and integrate because to do so would require them to morph into infidels, and morphing into infidels for Muslims is a capital offense since it is exceedingly blasphemous.

    Furthermore, ISIS doesn’t murder Muslims in mass. It murders blasphemers, apostates, and infidels who happen to be Shi’as. Indeed, blasphemers and apostates are not Muslims in their eyes. Instead, they are infidels!

    • fiddler

      “It’s not that they feel. It’s that they have no other choice, as the only other option is execution. There is no freedom of conscience in Islam for Muslims to have the right to choose. Every Muslim is a slave of Allah.”

      Just a question, not necessarily to disagree, but what about Muslims (or at least Arabs) in Israel? Since Israel has Hamas at its doorstep among others, how can Israel not be very concerned about destruction from within (i.e. Arab citizens). I understand that they even have a seat in politics!

      • ObamaYoMoma

        First of all, being of Arab descent isn’t the problem. There are plenty of non-Muslim Arabs living in America that are very productive and contributing citizens of our society. However, on the other hand, being a Muslim of any decent is a problem for all infidel societies including Israel, as all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, either of the violent variety, as in Hamas, or of the non-violent variety, as in the non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists that currently live in Israel proper.

        Indeed, Muslims of any descent never ever assimilate and integrate in infidel societies, as that would entail them morphing into infidels and morphing into an infidel for a Muslim is a capital offense in Islam, as it would be exceedingly blasphemous. So the answer is not all Arabs living in Israel are a problem, as the Druze and Christian Arabs certainly are not, and, indeed, many of them serve in the IDF. However, all Muslims of Arab descent living in Israel are a problem because also like everywhere else they are jihadists in one form or another.

        • ohreally

          For Israelis, being Arab IS a problem. I keep hearing Americans trying to cast their multicult views onto Israel. The word “Arab” is constantly used in Israel by Israelis.

            For Israelis, being Arab IS a problem. I keep hearing Americans trying to cast their multicult views onto Israel. The word “Arab” is constantly used in Israel by Israelis.

            Because political correctness in Israel has for the most part run amok, many Israelis have been inculcated to believe that the permanent and perpetual jihad that is being waged against them by the Islamic totalitarian world through their so-called Palestinian proxy is actually a land dispute between Jews and Arabs over land the Jews somehow illegally appropriated for themselves. However, it’s not. It’s just another run of the mill jihad and one of the many such jihads around the world the Islamic totalitarian world is also waging against various infidels that altogether comprise the worldwide global jihad at large, in which ALL MUSLIMS are waging jihad (holy war) against ALL INFIDELS in the world in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam and its followers supreme throughout the world. Thus, when I hear someone say what is happening in Israel is an Arab – Israeli Conflict, I automatically know the person saying it or writing it doesn’t have a fricking clue.

          • Americana

            This is a LAND DISPUTE, the fact it is further enhanced by a RELIGIOUS DISPUTE, is simply adding another layer of sociological complexity to the whole mess. The fact you and others like you keep trying to eliminate part of the mess by pretending that the Israelis didn’t take land away from the Palestinians is so utterly ridiculous, it’s hard to believe you think you’re making sense by making that claim.

          • JB Ziggy Zoggy

            Land dispute? Yes. The islamopithecines want to take Israel’s land.

          • Americana

            The land in question is not all Israel’s.

          • http://www.chaverimisrael.org Norbert Haag

            Yes it is by all international standards.

            See this is why I called you stupid the other day, your arguments are based on the propaganda du jour, rather than a firm knowledge of history and what international law actually is.

          • Americana

            I’ve got a firm grasp of regional history and that’s what you find irritating such that you claim I’m “stupid.” You’d rather no one challenge claims such as the statement that the long ago Jewish kingdoms of BCE (Before Common Era) still provide legal grounds for the reclamation of provenance rights and the resurrection of the Jewish state in modern times and the wholesale booting out of Palestinian Arabs. Interesting that you’d claim I’m the one engaging in regurgitating the propaganda of the day when it’s very true that propaganda comes in waves on FPM…

          • JB Ziggy Zoggy

            There is no such thing as a Palestinian Arab and nobody was “booted out” of Israel when it was founded. The multi-ethnic, riff raff parasites squatting on land the Jews had turned from dead to green willingly (gleefully) withdrew so that after the invading Arab armies had annihilated the Jews, they could scurry back in and appropriate all was left.

            It didn’t work out the way they’d hoped. Tsk tsk. Stupid aninals. The ones who stayed are now citizens. The ones who left and thought they could come back and seize Israeli land became Psuedostinian terrorists.

            The same terrorist scum you support with your anti-Semitic trolling.

          • SoCalMike

            And the Arabs that stayed and helped fight got full citizenship.
            You don’t throw out people en masse when you’re short of fighting age men with 5 Arab armies bearing down on you.
            American academics and media loves allowing themselves to be used as propaganda condoms for Jew hatred and hatred of Western Civ.
            The result is poor confused Americana and many like her conditioned to place good and evil on the same moral plane.

          • JB Ziggy Zoggy

            It is. Gaza is allowed self “governance” by terrorists while Judea and Samaria are not contested by Jordan anymore. It’s only a matter of time before Israel slaps down its lefties and makes its borders official.

            Well you know what, it is because the Israelis didn’t take land away.

          • IslamDownpressesHumanity

            I’d hazard a guess that for Jews, being Jewish in any Arabic state is a MUCH bigger problem — especially if they advertise the fact they’re Jewish publicly.

        • Americana

          All Muslims are NOT NECESSARILY JIHADISTS of “one form or another.” You are claiming there is absolutely no differentiation between one Muslim and another in terms of their free will and decision making on issues. If your claim were true, that all Muslims thought alike and were interested in committing themselves to jihad, we’d have a far larger problem IMMEDIATELY a jihad is declared anywhere.

          • IslamDownpressesHumanity

            Of course not all moslems can be jihadists. After all, someone has to finance islamic terrorism, which you do through your islamic “charities”.

          • JB Ziggy Zoggy

            Finance of jihad is terrorism.

          • Americana

            Not being a Muslim and not being interested in contributing to terrorism are my two reasons for avoiding Muslim charities like the plague.

          • IslamDownpressesHumanity

            Throughout all your posts islamofascist apologia is a common theme. I don’t think it’s by accident either.

          • Americana

            You’re wrong about the philosophy behind the “theme” but you’re right about there being a common theme. I know exactly the line I’m taking on this issue and it’s not falling to one side of the line or the other much as you’ll continue to label it as such. I realize I’m in good company w/someone like Count Bernadotte.

            People are called anti-Semitic and as Islamofascists if they don’t take precisely the line that Israelis/Jews and evangelist Christians want them to take. To that I’d say, and look how GREAT that Israeli foreign policy choice has worked out so far.

          • JB Ziggy Zoggy

            I have a simple formula for proving all muslims are jihadi terrorists.

            Fact: islam is a terroristc religion.

            Fact: All muslims support islam.

            Fact: Support of islam supports terrorism.

            Fact: Whoever supports terrorism is a terrorist.

            Fact: All muslims are terrorists.

            Muslims worship a religion based on jihad (terrorism) whether they blow people up or not.

      • http://www.chaverimisrael.org Norbert Haag

        Not only that, they have members of kneset, the Israeli parliament, and the head of supreme court is arab.

        The world does not know anything about Israel only that they are supposed to be brutal child killers.

        In fact Israel is the only country in the whole region where an Arab can live in peace and without being accused of not being muslim or even not being the right sect of Islam.

        In Israel Muslims are citizens that vote, get welfare, medical support, can be openly gay, can be openly anti – Israel and still can live their lives in peace.

        Compare that to the “peaceful” neighbours of Israel and you understand in a split second what you need to know about propaganda, the western media, the progressives and the current U.S. administration

      “Muslims are not terrorists but jihadists instead waging holy war against all infidels”

      One does not preclude the other. During Americas war of independence against Great Britain, we used both.

      What is terrorism? According to Merriam Webster, it is, “the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion”. The beheading, according to what James Foley said, was to coerce the United States into stopping the air attacks and to make Americans rise up against our government (admittedly, now an idea made more popular with clueless, Anti-American President Obama as its head). Here’s the text of what Foley said, speaking the terrorists words while under duress:

      “I call on my friends, family, and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the US government. For what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality.

      “My message to my beloved parents, save me some dignity, and don’t accept some meagre compensation, for my death, from the same people who effectively hit the last nail in my coffin with their recent aerial campaign in Iraq.

      “I call on my brother John, who is a member of the US air force. Think about what you are doing, think about the lives you destroy, including those of your own family. I call on you John, think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq recently and kill those people, whoever they may have been. Think John, who did they really kill? And did they think about me, you, our family when they made that decision?

      “I died that day John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom and seeing my family once again. But that ship has sailed. I guess all in all I wish I wasn’t American.”

      So, actually, the Islamists “Holy War” consists mostly OF terrorism. They use little or no conventional warfare.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        One does not preclude the other. During Americas war of independence against Great Britain, we used both.

        You obviously are a leftwing loon and also more than a little mentally incompetent, as the British falsely mislabel all who rebel against their harsh and oppressive colonial authority terrorists. They not only mislabeled American freedom fighters terrorists during the Revolutionary War, they also mislabeled the Jews in Israel as being terrorist because they also had the audacity to resist their very oppressive authority. Thus, today every British school kid grows up believing Israel to be a terrorist state. No wonder the Brits are so anti-Semitic!

        What is terrorism?

        I don’t need some wet behind the ears leftwing loon like you to tell me what is terrorism, as I already forgot more about it than you will ever come close to knowing.

        In any event, moonbat, what exactly makes Muslims terrorists in your leftwing tainted eyes? You obviously have been very inculcated via the lamestream media and have never studied Islam. Indeed, everything you know, you got from lamestream media. That somehow qualifies you as an authority.

        So, actually, the Islamists “Holy War” consists mostly OF terrorism. They use little or no conventional warfare.

        The only Islamists that exist, exist within the unhinged recesses of your mind, as like Muslim extremists and Muslim radicals, there are also no Islamists. I see you also don’t have the first clue about Islam as well. Typical!

        Again, describe why you see Muslims as being terrorists.

        Describe conventional warfare? Because Muslim jihadists are very conventional in the way they have always traditionally waged jihad. As a matter of fact, they have never deviated in the almost 1400 year history of their existence.

        • Americana

          The Israelis specifically targeted British diplomats for assassination. That qualifies as terrorism. Surely you know that diplomats are off-limits for military attacks and they’ve always been considered off-limit targets for attacks in modern history? (If you don’t know this, then don’t participate in any Benghazi threads.) The nascent Israelis also blew up public transportation and trains. That qualifies as terrorism. Lo and behold, the Palestinians are blowing up public transportation. That’s terrorism too.

          Just because one group — the Palestinians — has taken their terrorism to a whole ‘nother level doesn’t preclude calling the attacks the Israelis made “TERRORISM” when they were genuinely terrorist acts. Some of the Israeli attacks were directed enough at the British military, they could be considered legitimate military attacks. Others simply don’t fall within that category.

          • IslamDownpressesHumanity

            I’m sorry but the Israelis were fighting for their freedom from islamic tyranny — a tyranny that had committed pogroms against Jews in Yerushalem and Baghdad earlier in the 20th century. The British were collaborating w/the islamic-nazis who were fighting, not for freedom, but for their islamic “right” to continue persecuting Jews and Christians in Israel.

          • Americana

            There was no Jewish state and therefore there was no fight against Islamic tyranny in the Palestine Mandate. There was instead an increasingly frenzied attempt to resurrect the Jewish state in the Palestine Mandate w/the inevitable sociological fallout among the Palestinian Arabs from attempting to recreate a Jewish homeland in a largely Muslim region where the inhabitants were attempting to find their own political identity.

            There may have been pogroms earlier in the 20th century but they were related to the gradually increasing pressure of Zionism in the Palestine Mandate when the Palestinian Arabs began to become aware of the political pressure to secure a Jewish homeland in the Palestine Mandate after the dissection of the Turkish Caliphate after WW I.

          • http://www.chaverimisrael.org Norbert Haag

            A largely Muslim region? So further up you blame religion for the mess and now you use it as a reason for Israelis smeared of being occupiers?

            If you would make the effort to research your hogwash just a little bit you would find that Jerusalem had no Muslim majority in the 19th and 20th century at all. Chances are it never had but for the last 200 years it is a fact. Second places like Hevron and Bethlehem never had a Muslim majority until the “peaceful” PLO thugs “cleaned them.

            You talk about what you don’t know.

          • Americana

            The fact there may have been individual cities in Palestine that had dominant demographics where the largest demographic was other than Muslim is neither here nor there in terms of the regional demographic balance which was overwhelmingly Muslim. This is the case unless, that is, you’re going to revert back to the historical age of city-states. The Muslim demographic was always dominant across most of Jerusalem w/only a portion of the city a dominant Jewish demographic. Something which one would expect for both nations, given the insularity of both nations.

            http://www.cjpmo.org/DisplayDocument.aspx?DocumentID=18

            Here’s a presentation on the demographics of Jerusalem w/the outrageous claim that VISITORS/TOURISTS to the Holy City acted like CENSUS TAKERS and counted the numbers of Jews vs Christians vs Arabs and that this informal census taking is accurate. See if you find other remarkably odd “statements of fact” on this site:

            http://ziontruth.blogspot.com/2005/08/jerusalems-population-throughout-19th.html
            _____________________________________________________

            On the following web site, claims are made that Jews take better care of the city of Jerusalem and its holy sites and its archaeological proof of Jewish/Israeli claims to the city, that the Jewish demographic maintains access to the city’s religious sites for the benefit of all faiths, but at least there is a more honesty about the Jews losing the city in 70 CE.

            http://www.mythsandfacts.org/NOQ_OnlineEdition/Chapter3/jerusalem1.htm

            IN A NUTSHELL

            Jerusalem’s Jewish connection dates back more than 3,000 years. Even after Jews lost control of the city in 70 CE, a Jewish spiritual and physical bond with Jerusalem remained unbroken, despite 2,000 years of dispersion.

            Although Islamic dynasties controlled Jerusalem for some 1,300 years, they never once made it the capital of an Arab state. Even Jordan, which controlled part of the city for 19 years, until 1967, refrained from making it its capital. Furthermore, Jerusalem is never mentioned in the Quran, Islam’s most holy book.

            Given the central role Jerusalem plays throughout Jewish history; given Arabs dismal record toward the rights of Jews and Christians in a sensitive, sacred city like Jerusalem; and coupled with the Arabs’ horrific record of bringing carnage to the City of Peace; Israel has a legal, historical and moral right to control Jerusalem as its undivided capital.

            Jerusalem must remain a unified capital under Israel’s exclusive sovereignty in order to protect the interests of the Jewish people and as the only guarantee that the interests of all other faiths will be protected.

            Assassination is not terrorism, and non military targets are not “off limits” in warfare, modern or otherwise.

            There’s no moral equivalency between Hamas and Israel. There is an immoral equivalency between Hamas, ISIS and……….Obama.

          • Americana

            Yes, there most certainly IS EQUIVALENCY between Hamas and Irgun and the other Zionist terrorists. Or at least one can compare a particular level of terrorism committed by all such terrorist factions. The fact you’re trying to draw this artificial distinction between the Irgun and other Zionist factions and their terrorist actions and Hamas and the PLO and their terrorist actions is indicative you know that the nascent Israelis committed terrorism. You’re just not willing to face the reality that bombings of civilians markets and assassinations most certainly qualify as terrorism just because you feel you’ve got a good, cultural reason for committing those acts. Ha, but that’s exactly why the Palestinians are committing their terrorist acts.

            As for assassination not being terrorism, WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO KID? That assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte most certainly was TERRORISM. We’re finally getting somewhere w/you admitting that “non-military targets ARE NOT off-limits in warfare, modern or otherwise.” Ah, so there we have it, the admission that any and all persons can be legitimate terrorist targets. DIPLOMATS are not supposed to be involved in the actual PROSECUTION of war and therefore they have diplomatic immunity. Diplomats are there to convey information and communications between WARRING PARTIES, they aren’t supposed to be combatants or used for target practice. Count Folke Bernadotte performed miracles for some Jews and his thanks was to be assassinated.

            This above was in a post down below w/Count Bernadotte’s full Wikipedia biography. Now, let’s discuss why it is that Count Bernadotte was assassinated by the Jewish Irgun. You write your explanation first and I’ll reply in a separate post. Let’s see who’s closer to the truth.

            Ah, ObamaYoMama really doesn’t know very much about the early history of Zionism in the Holy Land… Better get out those reading glasses and bring some realism to the old OYM rose-colored historical perspective.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folke_Bernadotte

            Folke Bernadotte, Count of Wisborg (Swedish: Greve af Wisborg; 2 January 1895 – 17 September 1948) was a Swedish diplomat and nobleman noted for his negotiation of the release of about 31,000 prisoners from German concentration camps during World War II, including 450 Danish Jews from Theresienstadt released on 14 April 1945.[1][2][3] In 1945, he received a German surrender offer from Heinrich Himmler, though the offer was ultimately rejected.

            After the war, Bernadotte was unanimously chosen to be the United Nations Security Council mediator in the Arab–Israeli conflict of 1947–1948. He was assassinated in Jerusalem in 1948 by the militant Zionist group Lehi while pursuing his official duties. The decision to assassinate him had been taken by Natan Yellin-Mor, Yisrael Eldad, and Yitzhak Shamir, who later became Prime Minister of Israel.

          • http://www.chaverimisrael.org Norbert Haag

            Yeah and Bernadotte was a innocent civilian yes?

          • Americana

            If you’re going to make the claim that Count Bernadotte was something other than a neutral diplomat then offer proof of his perfidy.

            Don’t simply try to imply that he was something nefarious, PROVE IT. Considering the man rescued many Jews during WW II, it would be strange for you or any other Jews to claim he would turn around post-WW II and suddenly become perfidious toward Jews, but, go ahead, try making a nefarious claim. I’d love to look at your proof.

          • IslamDownpressesHumanity

            You whine and bitch about Bernadotte, but I note you have f’all to say about the Yerushalem pogrom of 1929 or the Farhud pogrom — excuses notwithstanding.

          • Americana

            That pogrom isn’t what we’ve been talking about. If you wish to start talking about that particular pogrom, have Greenfield or another of the writers start a SEPARATE THREAD about all the pogroms related to the partition and declaration of Israel. The pogrom in Farhud had NOTHING to do w/Jerusalem and everything to do w/events in Baghdad, Iraq. There will be no lumping together of pogroms as if they’re all identical in how they came about. They are identical in their horrific results, but they come about through specifics linked to each pogrom.

          • Americana

            Don’t you dare try to excuse the assassination of Count Bernadotte as if his murder can in any way be excused by you bringing up pogroms. These three events were entirely separate incidents.

            I can tell you in a few sentences why it was that Count Bernadotte was likely targeted for assassination. Care to enlighten us why Count Bernadotte wasn’t “an innocent civilian” from your perspective before I do so?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Your own link, idiot, demonstrates that you are an anti-Semitic bigot moron.

          • Americana

            The link proves that Jews assassinated diplomats, which is considered a criminal act, and is an act which you denied the Jews ever committed. They assassinated diplomats more than once so the assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte wasn’t an accident, i.e., they didn’t just happen to shoot up the wrong car on different occasions.

            Either you are ignorant of the early Zionist history or you don’t want the truth about such attacks to be shared. It’s one or the other. Neither one of those situations reflects well on you who claims to be such a knowledgeable expert on the history of Israel. As for me being an anti-Semitic bigot moron, you’re a moron if you think that this particular exchange makes you out to be educated and me to be a bigoted moron. I’m interested in the facts of what both sides are doing to further their cause. I point out the evils the Palestinians do, you think I’m gong to let the Israelis off the hook for what they do? You’ve shown your true colors in this series of posts and you’ve demonstrated significant ignorance of the reality of the activities of the early Zionists.

          • Drakken

            You seem to think that you are above the frei and that you are neutral. What happened 65 years ago is far different than the jihadist mess we are all now in. Giving land to the muslims isn’t going to make this mess better for it will only make it worse, for when you give a muslim an inch they will take your arm next, so your meandering about 65 years ago is a moot point and immaterial to the facts on the ground now.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            The link proves that Jews assassinated diplomats,

            He was assassinated for being a stooge of the British and the Muslims by members of the Stern gang to prevent him from putting the screws to the Jews. The assassination was not ordered by the Jewish state. Therefore, your claim that Israel is a terrorist state is bogus and that means you are an anti-Semitic Muslim apologizing bigot.

            and is an act which you denied the Jews ever committed.

            When and where? I denied it was ordered and sanctioned by the state of Israel, but I never said that Jews were not behind his assassination. You are putting words in my mouth I never uttered.

            Either you are ignorant of the early Zionist history

            If anyone is ignorant of early Zionist history it’s you. How otherwise could you be so easily duped by Muslim taqiyya artists, especially when their garbage is so transparent and utterly absurd?

            I’m interested in the facts of what both sides are doing to further their cause.

            You wouldn’t acknowledge a fact even if it stared you in the face and spit in your eye because you are obviously obsessed with hating Jews, which is why you are also addicted to apologizing for Muslims, because they are your partners in crime.

            you think I’m gong to let the Israelis off the hook for what they do?

            What they do? Unlike the Christian and Yazidi infidels in Iraq and Syria, the Jewish infidels in Israel have the capability to defend themselves from the Muslims you are addicted to apologizing for because they are your vicious partners in crime.

            You’ve shown your true colors in this series of posts and you’ve demonstrated significant ignorance of the reality of the activities of the early Zionists.

            If anyone has demonstrated their ignorance, I suggest you go look in the mirror.

          • Americana

            The fact Bernadotte’s assassination wasn’t ordered by “the state of Israel” is neither here nor there. Why? Because at that point, the nascent Israelis considered themselves to be a political entity, the state of Israel. The fact his murder was ordered as a political statement and as a way to insist on specifics about the disposition of Jerusalem says everything anyone needs to know about his murder. The fact you wrote “…was assassinated for being a STOOGE of the British and the Muslims by members of the Stern gang to prevent him from putting the screws to the Jews,” indicates you sanction the murder of diplomats by terrorists. You think Bernadotte’s murder was sensible because he didn’t want to grant Israel the status over the disposition of Jerusalem that Israel demanded. That is still being disputed today so Bernadotte’s death accomplished exactly NOTHING.

            As for you and your hair-splitting over what was reasonable terrorism and what isn’t and wasn’t reasonable terrorism, you shouldn’t be trying to wiggle away from saying which Jewish terrorists/freedom fighters did and why they did it. You look like a liar and a dissimulating idiot. Count Bernadotte was killed because “he was putting the screws to the Jews.” Oh, you are hysterically FUNNY. The IRONY of saying that a man who’d saved Jews was now willing to put “the screws to the Jews” because Bernadotte didn’t want to allow the fury of the Arabs to be unleashed against the Jews because of the Jews being too rigid in their demands. Oh, and look, here we are today, 70 plus years later, arguing over those very same issues.

            You’re finally fully exposed as exactly what you are. As someone who believes any behavior is permissible by a religio-political entity that doesn’t wish to be encumbered by reasonable diplomatic thinking and reasonable diplomatic solutions. You should be sooooo PROUD of YOURSELF for finding such significant ways to have contributed to world jihad. You’re not an ANTI-JIHADIST, you’re a PRO-JIHADIST on Biblical steroids.

          • Americana

            No, I’m not above the fray (frei, sic) at all. And I am a “frei” to Israel whether you consider me that or not. However, for the sake of rationality and peace, I’m willing to make concessions that you claim were and are impossible for Israel. If these concessions had been part of the partition agreement decades ago, would this situation be what it is today? It would likely be substantially different. Having made those diplomatic failures decades ago, don’t tell me what is and isn’t possible. Because your solution of genocide is no more a solution than was the Final Solution.

            So, since it really isn’t immaterial to the “facts on the ground now,” that the Israelis have kept telling the world that the Palestinians don’t/didn’t deserve a nation, that the Palestinians are too dangerous to be a nation right next door to Israel and on and on and on… Well, that policy has led to this present impasse. I’d say that’s a complete and utter policy failure.

          • Americana

            It’s pretty funny that you’d make such a punny Freudian slip as to say “I consider myself above the FREI.”

            The facts on the ground now are because Israel has allowed this situation to fester and fester and fester under the mistaken belief Israel will eventually prevail without meeting the U.N. requirement of a Palestinian state.

        • pfbonney

          You don’t take well, anyone disagreeing with you.

          FYI, in my 55 years, I have been ONLY a registered Republican, and was a proud constituent of US Representative Ron Paul here in the Greater Houston, TX area. I consider myself a proud Tea Party supporter, and won’t ever be a complete libertarian as their support for open borders will saturate this country with people with much less tolerance for diverse opinions than they (libertarians can’t seem to see that).

          So that’s who I am.

          Now, as distasteful as it may sound, the “American” colonists DID use bombings and other acts that we now refer to as terrorist tactics, as defined by an objective and non-partisan source, a dictionary. And Merriam-Webster is the dictionary is the only dictionary that you will find in US Navy technical libraries and specified for use on curriculum development contracts (as I saw when I was active duty Navy and when I was a defense contractor developing curricula FOR the US Navy back in the late 1980s.

          I wish I remembered the name, but there is an excellent book out there that tells the story of the early days of the revolution as it happened in New England (where I was born and raised – Maine, that is – where the first attack against the British occurred). There is much more to the revolution than the major battles fought by Washington, Arnold, and the rest.

          I can’t speak to who knows more about terrorism. You may be a CIA specialist on the topic for all I know. But I’ve been interested in geopolitics since an early age, and followed such things as terrorism. You have yet to make your point that only a forums foremost expert on a given topic is allowed to give a personal opinion, as you imply. And I have studied it, to some extend, while preparing intel presentations in the National Guard.

          “…what exactly makes Muslims terrorists in your leftwing tainted eyes?”

          I never said that all Muslims are terrorists. My life-experiences actually have shown me that NOT all Muslims ARE terrorists.

          “You obviously have been very inculcated via the lamestream media and have never studied Islam.”

          Considering the only “lamestream media” I read is that which Matt Drudge provides a link to, I don’t see that I have been inculcated “via” it. And, no, I have never studied Islam. But I don’t need to study Islam to read the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Unless you can prove otherwise, of course.

          “The only Islamists that exist, exist within the unhinged recesses of your mind, as like Muslim extremists and Muslim radicals, there are also no Islamists. I see you also don’t have the first clue about Islam as well. Typical!”

          Your point is not clear to me.

          “Describe conventional warfare? Because Muslim jihadists are very conventional in the way they have always traditionally waged jihad. As a matter of fact, they have never deviated in the almost 1400 year history of their existence.”

          Again, you are not being very clear, particularly if you are a professional in the field.

          Conventional war is war waged by standing armies, such as waged against Israel in the 1967 Yom Kippur and 1973 wars by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Your definition of a conventional war is non-standard, in military usage. And I stand by my Merriam-Webster-provided definition for the definition of “terrorism”.

          Has anyone ever told you that you have a thin skin?

          • Virgil Hilts

            Hmmm…not All Muslims are terrorists….but…so far…ALL the terrorists Have been Muslims…and I’m pretty sure that NONE of them came from the Dutch-Reform church!

            It’s kind of a slap at that nebulous group which persists in calling Islam a ‘Religion of Peace’. Yeah…….right.

          • pfbonney

            You’re still being cryptic.

            I don’t know what you THINK I was saying, but “ObamaYoMoma” had said that Muslims are not terrorists, that is how they wage war. I responded that one does not preclude the other – the Muslims typically, though not always, wage war through acts of terrorism – that’s how asymmetrical warfare is often fought.

            And as far as my comment that not all Muslims are terrorists, my ex-brother-in-law, from Cairo and is someone that eats pork, is a productive member of American society who left college as a computer programmer and now is a network administrator. He doesn’t even keep up with Israel-Palestinian issues. I can’t see that he is a terrorist. And a former co-worker of mine at AT&T, and who has been promoted to, at least, a 1st-line supervisor since I last worked with him, is from Algeria and prefers Jewish lawyers to any other kind, and has little or no use for anyone who makes a big deal out of the Palestinian “issue”. I can’t see him committing acts of terrorism.

            A long answer to your comment but you were being so vague I hope to wrap things up with this broad-scoped (though definitely not “all-encompassing”) answer.

          • Virgil Hilts

            Great reply…I could have better qualified my comment; it came to my attention after 9-11…so…thank you for providing some good balance to the discussion. IO guess that it is common throughout all cultures…the miscreants give everyone else a bad name…

            This is the kind of kooks you got to contend with when they get their definition of terrorism from a fricking dictionary of all places.

            By the way, after reading the rest of your post, it is very obvious that you are absolutely oblivious, just like most Ron Paul kooks.

          • pfbonney

            “This is the kind of kooks you got to contend with when they get their definition of terrorism from a fricking dictionary of all places.”

            So where do you get YOUR definition from? Some place less authoritative and less impartial, I take it?

          • ObamaYoMoma

            was a proud constituent of US Representative Ron Paul here in the Greater Houston, TX area.

            Well that says it all. What do you know…another Ron Paul kook flushed out of the woodwork!

            Indeed, the 9/11 violent jihad attacks were America’s chickens coming home to roost according to Ron Paul and his kook acolyte brigade, because way back in the 1950’s the USA helped the UK to oust Mossadegh, who was a secular infidel heading up a Shi’a infidel state. Thus, AQ, a Sunni organization that is waging jihad against all infidels, retaliated against America on 9/11, i.e., blowback is the operative term according to Ron Paul kooks, because we helped to oust a secular infidel from a Shi’a infidel state. Yeah, Ron Paul utters that garbage and gains millions of new followers subsequently. All of them unhinged, mentally incompetent, and kooks, but what the heck. No wonder you don’t have a clue.

            By the way, you neglected to provide any specific incidences of Revolutionary War soldiers actually perpetrating terrorism against the Brits. Obviously, because you can’t.

            And Merriam-Webster is the dictionary is the only dictionary that you will find in US Navy technical libraries and specified for use on curriculum development contracts (as I saw when I was active duty Navy

            That’s not only one of the most unhinged things I have ever read, it’s one of the most idiotic things I’ve ever read. A fricking run of the mill dictionary is the official arbiter on all things constituting terrorism. You’re a fricking comedienne too!

            Are you and John Kerry somehow related? Indeed, you are both from New England.

            Not to mention that our CIA has been incredibly incompetent for decades. So while you may hold them in high esteem, please excuse me if I don’t

            I asked you what makes Muslims terrorists in your eyes and you answer, “I never said all Muslims were terrorists.” That’s not what I asked…you knucklehead. Actually, no Muslims are terrorists, because terrorism isn’t even an Islamic manifestation. However, all Muslims, on the other hand, are jihadists in one form or another, either of the violent variety or of the non-violent variety. Otherwise, they are executed for either apostasy, blasphemy, or both per the dictates of mainstream orthodox Islam, which is the only kind. Indeed, you can look that up too in your Merriam-Webster dictionary to confirm it.

            By the way, you are a complete and utter waste of my time. Have a very blessed day.

Let the Muslims in other countries clean up the mess. Let them know that we will do the same to them unless they reject Islam just as the nazis and the Japanese had to reject their ideologies.

      • William

        Muslims will never have their Caliphate. It’s as dumb an idea as creating an ‘Aryan Nation’.

        • nobullhere

          They said Hitler would never conquer half of Europe back in 1935, and back in 1923, what were the odds against him becoming German Chancellor, then Fuehrer? Pretty long I would say. But they happened, and warnings were ignored all along the way, much to our cost. And if nothing gets done, their caliphate dream just might come true.

          • William

            Well, for one thing Muslims in general don’t support the idea.

            It’s a convenient propaganda talking point for the Obama administration, used to make you afraid and rallying behind his war efforts.

          • nobullhere

            Germans in general didn’t support Hitler in 1923, but they got him 10 years later. As for Obama’s war efforts, a golf club doesn’t look the part somehow.

          • William

            If you fear the Muslims then Obama has you wrapped around his finger.

    “When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.” That’s why the Obama administration has launched an FBI investigation into the murder of James Foley. Never mind that the United States has no extradition treaty with ISIS.

    • JB Ziggy Zoggy

      Exactly. Good luck for Holder’s phony investigation. If any of his lawyers or cops try to carry out an investigation in the ISIS Caliphate we’ll see some new video beheadings.

  • Drakken

    Pssst, we don’t have nukes in Turkey and haven’t since the Cuban Missile crisis.

  • Americana

    ISIS is most certainly quaking in their boots and assessing what their chances are for avoiding full-scale war w/the U.S. or their chance of waging a successful war against the remaining countries of the Middle East that will be waged w/American backing and technical advice. That’s why they killed James Foley, so as to make themselves seem implacable and powerful and w/their momentum still carrying them forward. There may be some Islamists who think that ISIS is sailing on, however, we know that by committing that barbarous, illogical act, they’ve committed mass suicide. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi thought that the U.S. would be stopped in its tracks by a death threat against an American citizen or the threat of the deaths of a limited number of American citizens. What al-Baghdadi is ignoring however are the numerous deaths to follow any further expansion of ISIS’ domain.

    • JB Ziggy Zoggy

      Yes, ISIS began to feel terror when it saw Obama go golfing.

      Trolltard.

      • Americana

        What, your brain is a little too zoggy to actually make a sensible remark? You think ISIS isn’t considering all its options right now after U.S. warplanes have started striking? Or are you so busy making propaganda remarks you haven’t got time for any contextual remarks?

        Yes, I’d say ISIS is waking up to the realization that the U.S. and the rest of the world isn’t go to sit back any longer. ISIS definitely sustained some damage from those first U.S. aerial bombardments, that’s why they killed James Foley and why they threatened Stephen Sotloff, another American journalist.

  • octogator

    I find this extremist blog is filled with these silly fluff opinion pieces posing as “news articles”. The titles of these articles might more appropriately read: “Blame the Left for Your Problems”. “Lets Rip This Country Apart and Hope Americans Hate Each Other More Every Day”. Ultra extremist liberal bloggers are similar to the far-right extremist bloggers posing as journalists on this site. So, don’t think only conservatives lie and twist facts like this. Liberals do it too.

    ” and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.”

    Sure they did, christians went out and slaughtered non believers, pagans “heretics” accused “witches” Protestants agnostis and anyone else who refused to convert. The history books and documents are chock full of proof of their violence, torturing, jailing, beheading, burning at the stake and forced conversions.
    The pilGRIMS landed here and then began a systematic effort of murdering the “sub human, godless” as they referred to them as- Native American Indians to steal their land and resources.
    In the 1800s this continued in earnest, the 1864 Sand Creek massacre of a tribe of 600 peacefull Cheyenne women and children were slaughtered by an ordained Methodist minister turned colonel by the US army- named Chivington. Chiving and his 700 troops raided the settlement with guns blazing despite the large American flag and the white flag displayed which by the way Abraham Lincoln himself gave them with the assurance that if they displayed the flag above their lodge no harm would come to them.

    “No just God would stand for what they did yesterday…”

    I guess the xtians’ god happily did just that, since he knew Foley was going to be murdered and did absolutely NOTHING at all to prevent or stop it, the radicals’ god stepped in and HELPED them capture Foley to begin with, ours certainly didn’t even bother to prevent that either, a simple flat tire, or missed bus, or any number of things could have changed that event.

  • Americana

    Another American journalist, except he was held by the Jabhat al-Nusra Front in Syria, has been released today after two years captivity. Peter Curtis was turned over in the Golan Heights. Does this have anything to do w/the U.S. deciding to bomb ISIS positions or is it an advertisement that al-Nusra is afraid of U.S. reprisals and retaliation for the kidnapping of its citizens?

    (CNN) — An American journalist held in Syria by Islamist rebels for close to two years was released on Sunday.

    Peter Theo Curtis, 45, is believed to have been captured in October 2012 and held by the al-Nusra Front, a Syrian rebel group with ties to al Qaeda.

    Good story on the war crimes committed by the Jabhat al-Nusra Front.

  • SoCalMike

    A man/boy whose never produced anything beyond words delivering a faculty lounge ballet in response to brutal evil and direct threats of warfare from the army that just routed the army we just left behind in Iraq.
    Isn’t ISIS a spinoff of the groups Ambassador Stevens and Hillary were arming in Syria when NATO deposed Kadaffi? So the bimbos in charge created the ISIS army that routed the US trained Iraqi army we left behind to keep the peace.

    What could go further wrong??
    These bimbos are so clueless even when they are tipped off or informed of an impending terrorist attack like Major Hassan at Fort Hood(they saw his business card that read SOA-soldier of allah and had his emails to and from Alawaki), the Underwear Bomber(his father contacted the CIA) or the Boston Marathon bombers(the Russians and Saudis both tipped us off), is anyone else noticing a pattern here??

    The fact Bernadotte’s assassination wasn’t ordered by “the state of Israel” is neither here nor there. Why? Because at that point, the nascent Israelis considered themselves to be a political entity, the state of Israel. The fact his murder was ordered as a political statement and as a way to insist on specifics about the disposition of Jerusalem says everything anyone needs to know about his murder. The fact you wrote “…was assassinated for being a STOOGE of the British and the Muslims by members of the Stern gang to prevent him from putting the screws to the Jews,” indicates you sanction the murder of diplomats by terrorists. You think Bernadotte’s murder was sensible because he didn’t want to grant Israel the status over the disposition of Jerusalem that Israel demanded. That is still being disputed today so Bernadotte’s death accomplished exactly NOTHING.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      The fact Bernadotte’s assassination wasn’t ordered by “the state of Israel” is neither here nor there. Why?

      Of course, but that’s only because you are an anti-Semitic Jew hating bigot.

      The fact you wrote “…was assassinated for being a STOOGE of the British and the Muslims by members of the Stern gang to prevent him from putting the screws to the Jews,” indicates you sanction the murder of diplomats by terrorists.

      Actually, I took that comment directly off the pages you linked. He was a stooge of the Brits and their Muslim allies. The Brits were very willing to sell out their soul to the Muslims in exchange for oil. Indeed, that’s why Bernadotte was killed.

      As a matter of fact, had the Stern gang known that Ben Gurion and his leftwing coalition were going to reject Bernadotte’s proposals beforehand, they never would have assassinated him!

      How was the Stern gang supposed to know that the leftwingers weren’t going to act like leftwingers? They had no way of knowing beforehand and thus Bernadotte was assassinated.

      I don’t sanction the killing because Ben Gurion and his leftwing coalition were going to reject Bernadotte’s proposal, but at the same time I can’t condemn the Stern gang either for killing him either, as it was part of a war and in war some people live and some people die. Bernadotte acted as a useful idiot and got killed for it. That’s what happens sometimes when you play with fire.

      Meanwhile, you are a fool if you believe that all the Muslims want is Jerusalem, because they don’t. They want to subjugate the entire infidel world. Indeed, that is the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam.

      • Americana

        Ah, now you’re willing to sanction Count Bernadotte’s killing because “in war, some people live and some people die.” Well, let’s get one thing clear. DIPLOMATS aren’t supposed to die in wars unless they die accidentally. They’re not supposed to die by assassination. However you worded your post, you have effectively put yourself outside the norms of behavior accepted by civilized governments. KILLING A DIPLOMAT IS NEVER LEGAL and SHOULD NEVER BE SANCTIONED. You’ve indicated Count Bernadotte died because he was a stooge. I don’t know what’s worse in that post of yours — your claim that Bernadotte was a stooge or your reasoning that the proposition of Bernadotte was so injurious to Israeli interests. The fact we are facing that very same issue today indicates that the Israelis didn’t get much mileage out of Bernadotte’s death.

        Initially, when I came across your postings I thought you were just an overwrought illogical person who’d been suckered into thinking what you do but you’re worse. You not only countenance deliberate lying, you then obfuscate about the lies when challenged. God help us when people like you can get books published.

    • Softly Bob

      I agree with you more or less, but I don’t think he’s a devout Muslim, I think he’s just a narcissistic Marxist with romantic fondness for his old religion. Like a lapsed Muslim who no longer goes to mosque but has fond childhood memories of living in the Muslim community.
      Obama hates Christianity too.
      I don’t that Obama believes in anything and he worships no god but himself.
