Britain Marks The 10th Anniversary Of 9/11(h/t to Frank)

I was sitting at a long stoplight yesterday, minding my own business, patiently waiting for it to turn green even though there was no oncoming traffic.

A carload of bearded, young, loud Muslims, shouting anti-American slogans, with a half-burned American Flag duct-taped to the trunk of their car and a “Remember 9-11″ slogan spray painted on the side, was stopped next to me.

Suddenly they yelled, “Allahu Akbar!” and took off as the light changed.

Out of nowhere, an 18-wheeler came speeding through the intersection and ran
directly over their car, crushing it completely and killing everyone inside.

For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself: ” Man — that could
have been me.”

So today, bright and early, I went out and got a job as a truck driver.

John Kerry: the Islamic State is not Islamic

Proving once and for all that John Kerry is clinically insane.

From FoxNews.com:

Islamic State not Islamic? Kerry, Obama questioned over ISIS claims

Secretary of State John Kerry insisted Thursday that the Islamic State is not Islamic, underscoring the effort to distinguish the terror group from mainstream Muslims – but also causing consternation that the administration may once again be underplaying the threat of radical Islam.

“They’re not a state, and they do not represent Islam,” Kerry said in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Of course.  ISIS or ISIL does not represent Islam any more than George Soros represents Leftist cash.

Or crocodiles represent teeth.

Islam is as Islam does” — as I have insisted for years — exists because it happens to be a fundamental truism.

Kerry almost became judgmental for a moment, but corrected himself thankfully:

At several points during the hearing, Kerry sought to describe the group in other terms. He called them a “militant cult masquerading as a religious movement.” At another point in the hearing, he used the phrase “Islamic radical groups” but immediately corrected himself.

“Islamic is the wrong word — radical religious extremists,” he clarified.

Thanks for the clarification.

Obama: ISIS can be a “manageable problem”

Of course it can.

First, from Breitbart.com:

Obama: ISIS Can Become ‘A Manageable Problem’

President Barack Obama said that ISIS can be shrunk to “a manageable problem” if the international community works to “isolate” it on Wednesday.

Really?  ISIS can simply be “managed”?

“If we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities, to the point where it is a manageable problem…what we’ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the international community, to isolate this cancer,” Obama stated. 

True, Mr Obama?  As the international community is SO interested in scaling back and opposing Vladimir Putin — particularly in Europe?  Because Mr Putin controls the Oil Tap that connects the EU to Russia?

That kind of international joining?  Meaning: none?

Mr Obama is so incredibly inane as to be ludicrous.

The so-called “international community” hasn’t the power that the US potentially possesses — power that Mr Obama refuses to wield.

Mr Obama believes that ISIS can be “negotiated with.”  He is wrong beyond wrong.  ISIS will not negotiate and those who believe they can are considered weak and targets by ISIS.

ISIS doesn’t run or is motivated by anything other than religious fervor — Islam, to be specific, and the most repressive and constrictive application of Islam indeed.

ISIS respects no borders or arbitrarily-drawn country lines.  Muslims are by nature a nomadic and tribal community ruled by various forms of barbarism, then as now.  Sharia Law stems from this.  The job of ISIS is simply to Borg the rest of the Middle East, by any means necessary.  A supreme caliphate is desired.

ISIS will not “negotiate” and cannot be “managed.”

ISIS: the “JV Team” beheads another American; what NOW, Mr Obama?

Once again, as I’ve written too many times to count, Mr Obama is “concerned” and is “monitoring.”  Translated: Mr Obama chooses to do nothing.

The evidence:

This on the heels of the beheading of American journalist James Foley, apparently by the same ISIS knife-wielding man, UK-educated and Islamist-bred “Jihadi John.”  A man who is apparently right-handed (because his shoulder holster is under his left arm) and yet wields a knife left handed.

James Foley Beheading by ISISBut let’s go back a tad bit, shall we, when Mr Obama called ISIS the “JV Team.”

For a so-called “Junior Varsity” team, ISIS seems to have steam-rollered its way through the Middle East quite handily since June.  Obama said:

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told Remnick. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

ISIS: the JV team, as per Barack Hussein Obama.  Nah, nothing to see here — move along, move along.  .  .

All things considered, what is Mr Obama’s response to ISIS and to the myriad abrogations and slaughterings?

Yes: “monitoring” and “concern.”

Meanwhile, UK’s PM David Cameron has taken a clear and obvious tack with regard to Islamic terror — precisely what Mr Obama has not.

David Cameron, British PM, plans new laws to tackle terrorism threat

British Prime Minister David Cameron says he’ll introduce new laws to combat terror suspects, pledging to seize passports to fight what he described as an extremist threat more dangerous than any previously seen.

Cameron told reporters that while the Taliban facilitated al-Qaeda terrorism, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria group is “effectively a state run by terrorists.”

Is the UK finally beginning to recognize what has been under its very nose for many years now?  Perhaps it is.

The UK has an actual leader.  The US has no leader.

ISIS members are here.  ISIS members are in this country.  They were either here and turned by events — or they simply got their ankles wet by crossing the Rio Grande on our southern border with every other useless Mexican invader.  Except that Mexicans aren’t yet interested in blowing the lungs out of our children with a nicely placed Semtex charge.

Perhaps it’s time for some visual reminders in re ISIS and Islam:

ISIS - Beheaded by ISISJust another severed day with ISIS.

ISIS - Beheading of Syrian Christian from MaaloulaBeheading of Christian Syrian.

ISIS - Beheadings in SyriaBeheadings in Syria.  Nice touch with the western hoodie.

ISIS - Christian Child Beheaded in SyriaChristian child beheaded.  Was she actually Christian?  ISIS couldn’t care less.

ISIS - Christians CrucifiedChristians crucified.

What now, Mr Obama?

What’s your plan?

Or will you simply acquiesce and be “concerned” and “monitoring”?
