Semantics Summit

Instead of a Summit on Extremism it is really a semantics summit.

“Political grievances that are exploited by terrorists.” Is he admitting he is a terrorist? Seriously, he’s done more to exploit grievances and divide people than anyone.

If I hear one more hand-picked letter example from Obama of a Muslim child saying they are good people, my head will explode. Where are all the letters from Christians saying this intolerance and genocide against Christians and Jews has to stop? None. Oh, he’s getting no letters from concerned Christians. More validation of his defense of Islam tour.

Obama boiled it down to a semantics soup. No matter what you see on the menu, you are getting semantics soup. (no offense to the Soup Nazi)

As Eric Holder instructed us, what does it matter if they use the words “Islamic terrorism” or not? Ask Obama, It matters a whole lot to him. If it really didn’t matter he wouldn’t have problems using it occasionally, so at least people know what he is talking about.

The social fabric of Islamic terrorism

Try to unpack some of these statements.

“We haven’t always gotten it right,” Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday as he opened the summit. “But we have a lot of experience integrating communities into the American system, the American dream.”

“Groups like al-Qaida and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives,” Obama wrote in an op-ed article Wednesday in the Los Angeles Times. “The world has to offer today’s youth something better.”

To the State Department, Marie Harf talks about it as a social problem. Chris Matthews opens describing it as evil, and her answer is the social ills at the root of the problem. But she criticized other strategic thinkers as being too simplistic.

Harf “We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them. … But we cannot win this war by killing them,” department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “We need … to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether –”

Chris Matthews who pointed out; “There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims.”

“If we can help countries work at the root causes of this — what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?”

While Harf wants to return to the social roots and mores, she has overlooked the social ill that is Islamic radicalism. They are returning to their roots of violent jihad that gave rise to Islam from the beginning. As soon as they had enough adherents to wage regional jihad war on others that is what they did. That is how it spread. So what ISIS is doing has historic precedent. This is their social program or paradigm.

If, as she says, we want to treat and deal with underline conditions and causes, how can you do that while evading the premises of faith on which it is built? Their central purpose and cause is Islam. Do people think a jobs program or youth after-school basketball is going to solve that? It seems ISIS recruits are taking a vow into communal poverty in joining, as a central tenant. Remember bin Laden’s gripe with Saudi Arabia and others that their material wealth outstripped, corrupted the tenants of Wahhabi Islam. So they aren’t interested in a better, more civilized society since barbarism is their social model — as long as their Islam is the central authority controlling it.

Right, lets address some of the social inadequacies. (all of which are centered on their Islamic faith) A faith that can create an edict to justify slaughter of anyone or marry children, or anything else they deem necessary for jihad. Those are the rules of the road. Including the use of Taqiyya toward the same ends. When these are their rules, it tells you what social deficiencies are really involved. Plus the fact that they certainly are not going to listen to an outsider telling them to reform or bringing them enlightenment.

Obama also said in his op-ed in the LA Times:

Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies. Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.

Obama wants to apply the blanket of human rights to an ideology that doesn’t accept human rights. That’s probably why we have the millennium-old problem. Obama should consult his old buddy Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground — with their radicalism and militant violence — who have been absorbed into academic institutions. Similar to the way Obama’s gang have endorsed the Muslim Brotherhood. Creative radicalism? Look at their successes across Egypt and Libya. It goes full circle with Obama.

Lastly, their latest justifications for their social poverty-talk formula is saying Bush made similar comments. They would refuse Bush’s advice or doctrines anywhere else, but now channel Bush to support their case. Under Bush, we did not know how wide spread the problems were. Bush also proved to be naive with a tin ear on the subject too.

However, Obama, as a fellow radical himself (above), should have some understanding of basic tactical strategies involved. They aren’t too far removed from progressives’ rules for radicals. Some people wish we could win over radical hearts and minds of progressives too. That has proved futile.

So Obama decides to have an extremism summit. At the same time he is willing to make a deal with Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But one thing they are not doing is connecting the dots of terrorism and ISIS with Iran, in general. They want to draw imaginary distinctions where none really exist, but yet they want to lump all terrorism under one “extremist” umbrella. Even if we had extremists under another banner committing terrorism, it would not be on the international scale as these caliphate-crazed Islamists. It would be an outlier. So they can shove their Timothy McVeigh comparisons.

Has anyone noticed the great jobs programs from all the aid to Palestinian areas? That’s a stunning example of where the money goes? It all depends on your definition of “jobs.”

But “all aboard the social-jobs train”. Wait, there’s another idea: how about training them to be social workers? Eureka, that’s it!

The story that is not told

The Canada Free Press has this article on the slaughtered “Egyptian citizens,” as Obama calls them. But there is more to the story than the graphic brutality. It needs to be told, as the author says. Even better, to be understood.

Victory over ISIS found in last words uttered by Christians

By Judi McLeod February 17, 2015

The blood of the innocents turned the sea red when ISIS slaughtered 21 Coptic Christians on a lonely Libyan beach on Feb. 15, 2015, but that should never be allowed to stand as the end of their story. …continue reading at CFP>

 

Dear Jesus, their lives are not in vain.
 
Update: Holder fields question about their terminology deficit.

Stop worrying about what we call it, or what it is. But “what we do about it” has not been any clearer than their creative terminology.

Report: Islamic State Claims ‘Radioactive Device’ Now in Europe

Freelance jihadist weapons maker makes claim on Twitter

An alleged weapons maker for the Islamic State (IS) claimed that a “radioactive device” has been smuggled into an undisclosed location in Europe, according to an intelligence brief released Monday by the SITE Intelligence Group.

“A Radioactive Device has entered somewhere in Europe,” according Twitter user Muslim-Al-Britani, who claims to be a freelance jihadist weapons maker now working alongside IS (also known as ISIL or ISIS), according to tweets captured and disseminated by SITE.

The claim by Al-Britani comes just days after reports emerged that IS could have in its possession a dirty bomb, the elements of which were obtained via earlier IS raids on a university research facility in Mosul that contained uranium. Al-Britani is also responsible for the flurry of reports on the dirty bomb.

Al-Britani, who has disseminated on his Twitter feed “weapon instructions and manuals,” claimed on Nov. 23 that the “Islamic State does have a dirty bomb. We found some radioactive material from Mosul university,” according to the tweets reproduced by SITE. [more]

At the G-20 Summit, Obama suggested using troops “would require rather extreme turn of events” (11/16/14):

“There are always circumstances, in which the United States might need to deploy ground troops,” Obama said. “If we discovered that ISIL had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon, and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then yes, you can anticipate that not only would Chairman Dempsey recommend me sending U.S. ground troops to get that weapon out of their hands, but I would order it.”

World according to WH Baghdad Josh

According to Josh Earnest:

People can be confident of the tenacity of government’s response to be able to deal with evolving situations, on the Ebola crisis.

Asked about a Ebola or disease czar, Earnest said that they are continually monitoring the situation and, if needed. they would “not hesitate” to install one.

Here’s a simple analogy of our current Ebola situation
Suppose you have a ship and it somehow gets a hole in the midsection. The captain immediately puts an alert to keep an eye out for any new cracks or holes in the bow. Then the captain says we are not going to repair that hole because we don’t think that is productive to dealing with the problem… in the water where it originated.

Also for perspective from a nurse about Ebola, see here.

Now apply either of the above talking points to the Islamic State, or ISIS’ black-flag death cult. Does Obama say “we are monitoring the situation and tenacious on responding to it…and if troops or more response is needed we will “not hesitate” to provide it”? No, of course not. But on the contrary, Obama absolutely rules it out. I’m sure that if more troops or something is needed for Africa, he will “not hesitate” to act accordingly.

However, when it comes to closing the border and travel from the infected areas, well, he refuses to do that. In fact, he declares it the wrong thing to do. (notice the pattern) Since when did Obama “NOT HESITATE” about any crisis? Worse, Obama’s first line of defense to a crisis is not even to hesitate, but actually ignore or deny it.

Now if, according to the talking points on Ebola so far, the chief “symptom” of someone causing them to be contagious is a fever, then you could say they’re acting by checking temps of passengers in selected airports. But that “symptom” check only suggests whether the person is contagious at that moment. (going by what they told us). That means that truly the only people they are protecting are supposedly other passengers and airline staff. So a person can show up somewhere like Thomas Duncan did, or travel to a destination in the middle of America, and become contagious.

The only thing it does is help insure he isn’t infectious in travel or at airport. That’s like a suicide bomber making it all the way through the checkpoints without being detected only to blow himself up later at some destination. And if we should have such an incident, we will not hesitate to respond in our tenacious government.

Make sense? I thought so. Thanks, Obama, or maybe that is the strategy to allow someone to pass through undetected. Why would you not place travel restrictions, especially after the exact scenario already happened? Now we have the fallout from the initial patient. The irony now is treating the symptoms and not the disease.

More toxic fallout — or symotoms:

State attorney general wants to stop ashes of Ebola victim’s belongings from being brought to Louisiana

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said late Sunday that he will seek a temporary restraining order to stop the incinerated belongings of Dallas Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan from being brought to a Louisiana landfill.

However, there is no evidence that this would spread the dreaded disease.

Another unforeseen problem. Surprise!

ISIS and CIA , Saudi Arabia’s Islamic State

Conventional wisdom, what is conventional in Iraq or Mid-East for that matter?

Suspicions Run Deep in Iraq That C.I.A. and the Islamic State Are United

SEPT. 20, 2014 | NYT

BAGHDAD — The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the C.I.A. is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking.

“We know about who made Daesh,” said Bahaa al-Araji, a deputy prime minister, using an Arabic shorthand for the Islamic State on Saturday at a demonstration called by the Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr to warn against the possible deployment of American ground troops. Mr. Sadr publicly blamed the C.I.A. for creating the Islamic State in a speech last week, and interviews suggested that most of the few thousand people at the demonstration, including dozens of members of Parliament, subscribed to the same theory. (Mr. Sadr is considered close to Iran, and the theory is popular there as well.)

The Islamic State . . . of Saudi Arabia

Between beheadings, they’ll help train the “moderate” Syrian rebels.
By Andrew C. McCarthy | NRO
September 20, 2014

The beheadings over the last several weeks were intended to terrorize, to intimidate, to coerce obedience, and to enforce a construction of sharia law that, being scripturally rooted, is draconian and repressive.

And let’s not kid ourselves: We know there will be more beheadings in the coming weeks, and on into the future. Apostates from Islam, homosexuals, and perceived blasphemers will face brutal persecution and death. Women will be treated as chattel and face institutionalized abuse. Islamic-supremacist ideology, with its incitements to jihad and conquest, with its virulent hostility toward the West, will spew from the mosques onto the streets. We will continue to be confronted by a country-sized breeding ground for anti-American terrorists.

The Islamic State? Sorry, no. I was talking about . . . our “moderate Islamist” ally, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

But the confusion is understandable.

Islamic State terrorists have infamously decapitated three of their prisoners in recent weeks. That is five fewer than the Saudi government decapitated in August alone. Indeed, it is three fewer beheadings than were carried out in September by the Free Syrian Army — the “moderate Islamists” that congressional Republicans have now joined Obama Democrats in supporting with arms and training underwritten by American taxpayer dollars.
