We all have read about the supposed evils of Israel because the media lists them almost daily. We have the leader of the musicians recently gathering the signatures of numerous British artists all swearing they will never play a concert in Israel simply because Roger Waters says Israel is hateful. How Mr. Waters knows this is beyond any first hand evidence, he just woke up one morning and joined the well-financed and well-organized boycott Israel club. He never bothered to verify any of the charges against Israel, he simply bought the propaganda that Israel hates the Arabs and refuses to allow them to vote. He took the bait that the Arabs living under the semi-autonomous self-rule in areas of Judea, Samaria and Gaza are not permitted to vote in Israeli elections. That is absolutely true, as is the fact that Israelis are not permitted to vote in elections for the Palestinian Arab Authority. Oddly enough, Israeli Arabs are not permitted to vote in Palestinian Arab Authority elections so should Mr. Waters also protest the Palestinian Arab Authority, who refuses to allow Israeli Arabs from voting in their elections, making them just as guilty of Apartheid. Perhaps we need to find some example closer to home for Mr. Waters and see if perhaps he can become enlightened.

 

We can use the United Kingdom where there are various semi-autonomous nation states of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each of these four nation states has their own governing boards and other functions which are elected from within their regions. A citizen of Northern Ireland cannot vote in Scotland and a citizen from Scotland cannot vote in Wales and so forth. Does this make each of the nations which make up the United Kingdom apartheid states because they have independent elections within each nation? We have all read that Scotland held a recent vote to remove themselves once again from under the British Crown and return to complete independence. They did not decide to do so in a close election which very well may have hinged on the threats coming from others within the United Kingdom and some of the scare tactics coming from London could have been interpreted as threats against the Scottish should they decide to return to being independent. Does this mean that the rest of the United Kingdom is using their vast influence and power to intimidate the Scottish from complete independence thus acting in a manner of racial hate towards the Scottish for their self-identity as a separate peoples? This could be twisted to show all kinds of reasons to boycott goods, academics and musicians from playing anywhere within the United Kingdom outside of Scotland with whom we the citizens of the world feel a need to unify behind in their quest to return to independence from under the colonial power of the United Kingdom and its British colonial oppressive tactics to continue their rule over what is left of their once mighty empire upon which they used to brag that the sun never set on all of the British Empire. The mighty may have fallen but they still rule with complete control and arrogance from London. After all, did the United Kingdom allow Mr. Waters to vote in the Scottish vote for independence, of course not?

 

A similar example could be made for the separate nations within the European Union who each elect their own governments which in turn make their own policies as long as they do not interfere with each other’s internal affairs. As part of the European Union each nation must accept the Euro coinage for payment of goods making travel between the several nations of the European Union much easier. This facilitates the freedom of movement within the European Union as there are no requirements for passport and visas to travel and the Euro is universally accepted. But then there are the British with their Pound Sterling which the Iron Lady former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher refused to give up and replace with the Euro. I believe her argument was that the British were better served to be in charge of their own monetary policies and their economic and other independent actions required Britain not to accept the Euro as the coin of the Realm. Could this British self-glorification, self-admiration and stubborn egoism not bring upon them the wrath of the rest of the European Union? Currently there are a few little budgetary and economic troubles within the European union of which this British elitism prevents the British Isles from being fully able and responsible to aid Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and other struggling nations leaving the burden to be pressed almost entirely on Germany with some lesser assistance from France and others, but the British remain outside the ill effects of this on the Euro as the British refuse to surrender the coin of the Realm, probably one of the most egregious symbols of British colonialism and conquest which spread the world over, the Pound Sterling. Perhaps the rest of the European Union should demand that the British give up their separate and unequal currency and accept the Euro completely and without any further reservations thus truly incorporating themselves within the European Union, after all that English Channel no longer separated you from the rest of Europe, there is the Chunnel connecting you directly to France and the Continent. If the British would just use the Euro it would better enable the European Union in assisting those members in need of a hand up which the Euro is supposed to supply.

 

Needless to point out, but the Lady Thatcher was dead on correct to not place Britain into the European cauldron of troubles by acceding to use the Euro and instead to remain in direct control of the coinage of the Realm and to be economically self-dependent and self-reliant using the Pound Sterling. Yes, I realize it is actually referred to a simply the Pound or ₤. The entire disaster which is the Euro derives from exactly the argument that Lady Thatcher made in her argument to retain the Pound and simply accept the Euro at its rate against the Pound at the time of the transaction. The threats that by retaining the Pound the British would be forever forced to check the going exchange rates of the Euro against the Pound or the € against the ₤. She flat stated, and was pilloried for it, that the Euro was untenable as long as each nation retained their ability to set their own economic policies, their own productivity targets and just about anything linked to their economy, work force policies, guaranteed employee benefits or anything else which would affect their use of the Euro. The sole manner that would make the Euro truly the coinage of the European Union would be a central planner who was responsible for setting all rules of the entirety of the European Union pertaining to the economy in any fashion, form or obligations. Every country would need to require their employees to have identical work weeks, vacation and sick leave, salary structure and economic targets. This would require the European Union to merge virtually every government function into the central authority of the European Union and it was this eventuality which the Lady Thatcher wished most to avoid.

 

So, do we now boycott all of the European Union who are insisting that the government of Greece accept to having their economic and other policies dictated to them from Brussels or possible Berlin as these are the origins of the Euros being loaned to Greece to keep the nation solvent and from economic collapse as their economic engines do not achieve a similar RPMs (Real Productivity per Man-hour) to the German and other economic engines within the European Union. Thus, because the Greeks use the Euro their government is being persuaded to adopt austerity measures which the people are so reluctant to implement after experiencing such restriction that they elected a government which will return them to their former economic policies and should the European Union object or demand further austerity measures, they promise a return to the Drachma, the ₯, the original Greek coinage which is one of the oldest coins in all of Europe and the world. Sitting on the cusp and watching as Greece is the first to actually fall beyond the cusp and become insolvent solely due to using the Euro and thus not being allowed to set their own monetary value which would better represent the economic productivity of Greece instead of accepting the Euro whose unified monetary policy in nonexistent and instead attempts to straddle an all inclusive area, an area which Greece did not quite attain, nor did Spain, Italy, Portugal and others potentially even France. So, Roger Waters, tell me, who do we protest by boycott now, Greece or Germany and Britain? Somebody is forcing the Greek governance how to write their economic policy and how to set their pension plans and everything else and the Greek people are refusing to elect any government which will bow to the central planners in Brussels. Who are the bad guys so I know whether to purchase a German vehicle, a French vehicle, an Italian vehicle (my first choice), or a Greek vehicle?

 

I figure who else should I ask other than Roger Waters who claims to be such an authority on who is acceptable amongst the nations of the world, so where do I spend my money, who do you approve as I would hate to get any bad social media attention because I did not do my civic duty and check to see if my purchases pass Roger Waters’s approved list of nations which qualify as politically acceptable. I mean, after all, with all the tours with Pink Floyd he must have full and first-hand knowledge which nations are kosher, if I can use that term or is it also too Israeli or too Jewish, please let me know on that one too while we are at it. What other words might be too supportive of the only nation thus far worldwide you have decided deserves our ire, which is correct Mr. Waters, just Israel deserves out boycott. Just to make sure, Russia is fine or the Ukraine, which one is righteous among the nations as judged by Roger Waters? Then do we not purchase anything made in China until they end their occupation of Tibet where they have also forced many Tibetans to be relocated in other far removed provinces and have replaced these native Tibetans with Chinese people who were mostly homeless and extremely poor and were bussed into Tibet and given the homes of the Tibetans who had been forced to leave. So, what about China and their subjugation of Tibet, a nation which never in recent history attacked or even bothered anybody but China just swallowed up Tibet. So, boycott China as well or just Israel Mr. Waters? What about the United States which swallowed up all of the Native American nations, do we demand that the United States return all the lands they did not legally purchase to their original Native American nations or just boycott Israel? What about Iran which sponsors the most terrorist actions and groups worldwide or Saudi Arabia which denies women of equality before the law or in society, or Australia which still has not returned the lands to the Aborigines from whom they stole it by force, or just Israel, which Mr. Waters?

 

Perhaps you should visit Israel and look around. You would be amazed as you would find a nation that is as free of racial afflictions as any I have ever witnessed. Israel, who went to rescue the Jews in Ethiopia who were being herded into a camp, you know what a camp means when you herd the Jews there, right Mr. Waters? They have arranged to bring the Bnei Menashe from India home as they are also of the house of Jacob. Many of the tribes who were scattered throughout the globe are being brought home to Eretz Yisroel. Not all were oppressed at this time but all have faced desperate periods where they were set upon by the other native populations, expelled from their homes and businesses, murdered outright, pogroms, made to pay an additional tax because they were Jews, and worst of, mass slaughter. Mr. Waters, the Jewish People are perhaps the most persecuted race of all time. When Israel was formed she received numerous Jews from Europe, as you are aware. Did you realize that they were prevented from simply coming to live in Israel by the British because the British had signed an agreement with the Arabs to never allow the Jews to become of a sufficient number as to be capable of forming a nation. Once Israel was barely recognized by a very tight vote in the United Nations, the Arab nations evicted approximately 850,000 Jews often with just one suitcase per family member and some with even less. Many Jews around the Arab world and across Europe were dispossessed of their homes and often Jews who survived the Nazi camps returned to their former homes only to find another family residing there, and their former neighbors joining together to force them out of their hamlet or village and then when they attempted to make their way to Israel they were prevented and placed in camps. Some Jews were taken from one Nazi concentration camp and when there was little room in the camps on Cyprus, they were shipped to Germany and placed back into one of the Nazi concentration camps. Read the story about the ship the St. Louis Mr. Waters and tell me who were persecuted. There were many Jews, millions of them, who had an even bigger problem than British making their return to Zion near impossible, these Jews found themselves behind the Iron Curtain, as Winston Churchill referred to Soviet domination. Many face years in the gulags simply for wanting to go to Israel, some just because they were a Jew and their loving neighbors complained to the authorities that they were unpatriotic and not a real member of the society and needed special treatment. Do you understand special treatment Mr. Waters?

 

On another note, did you know that Arabs serve in the Israeli Knesset Mr. Waters? Did you know that Arab Israelis do vote in Israel as do Druze and Bedouins as well as Christians, Buddhists, and every other religion which an Israeli may practice? There has been an Arab who sat and I believe one currently sitting on the bench of the Supreme Court of Israel. Arab doctors and nurses work side-by-side with Jews as both are Israeli citizens and fully incorporated in Israeli society and we would not have it any different way. Look around the Muslim controlled world and tell me how many of these nations allow Jews equal rights? Are there more than four or five out of the fifty-seven Muslim nations Mr. Waters? Why do people seeking a job and a better way of life who leave places such as Somalia, South Sudan, Eretria and others walk through numerous nations and cross Egypt which might simply shoot them on the spot if they were caught and across the Sinai Peninsula which is fraught with danger from terrorist gangs and still the increased possibility to be seen and shot by Egyptian border guards and finally make it to Israel. These are not political refugees but people seeking employment who are in Israel illegally and will end up returned to their homelands as soon as it is possible, but why would they come to Israel if it were such a horrid place as you claim it is? You probably know nothing about Israel. You probably believe the security fence which is over three-quarters fence and the rest wall usually within urban areas, and you call it an Apartheid Wall. Before that fencing was put in place it was impossible to prevent terrorists from entering Israel and thousands of Israelis were blown up simply living their lives, riding buses, eating in a pizzeria, shopping in a mall or just about anything else you could imagine. One such incident was the Passover Bombing of the Park Hotel Seder where a Hamas assassination bomber exploded its bomb murdering thirty mostly elderly Jews who had no family with whom to share their Passover Seder so they joined each other for this potentially joyous occasion turned tragedy. There were an additional almost 150 severely injured and amongst the victims were numerous Holocaust (Shoah) survivors. This was the sort of action the fence was erected to prevent and it was a total success as it decreased bombings and other terrorist acts significantly within the Green Line, the false armistice line which you mistakenly claim is the end of the lands granted Israel and the Jews by international law. Regarding that, simply read the notes from the San Remo Conference for the truth. As to the original claim to the lands of Israel, allow me to direct you to a book you know about but likely believe it is just a bunch of fairy tales, the book is called the Old Testament, and to make it simple so as not to tax you too much, just read Genesis and Exodus and if you still have questions, read Deuteronomy. Within you might see a few promises made and as was the way of the times, yes, we took the land by force, much like Egypt, Greece, Rome, Persia, Babylonia, the Mongols and the Arabs have done since. And just so you do not get confused, the Canaanites were not the Arabs who are claiming their ancestral origins to have been, their ancestral origins were from Saudi Arabia and Yemen of today, not anywhere near the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea. Then, Mr. Waters, visit Israel and even go to Ramallah and witness that there is an Arab Palestinian Authority government there, the government the Arabs do vote for, providing Mahmoud Abbas ever allows elections, elections which he has postponed since 2006 for his position and for the Parliament he has, they were not all elected, some were appointed and others reside in Gaza which is mostly controlled by Hamas and Abbas is pretty much unwelcomed there. These feuds have nothing at all to do with Israel other than the fact that both Fatah and Hamas as well as Islamic Jihad and the rest of the alphabet terror entities desire all of Israel destroyed and every Jew dead, which is where they claim separate ideas, Fatah just wants the Israeli Jews dead for now, Hamas and friends want every Jew dead worldwide. There is your truth Mr. Waters.

Back a couple of weeks, Boko Haram terrorists shot and burned to death at least 91 civilians in a new front within Cameroon. Ever since announcing their allegiance with ISIS, Boko Haram has expanded their campaign of horror making their initial incursions into Chad and renewed their targeting of Cameroon as well as their never ending horrors in Nigeria. Their horrors have terrified civilians with even the mention of their strikes coming ever closer to new towns, especially those with western styled schools which Boko Haram, true to their name which translates to Western Education is Haram, unholy and forbidden, as they have burned numerous schools after shooting students and teachers alike, kidnapping young girls and then securing the remaining captives within a small building and setting it aflame burning the final victims in as horrific a manner as they are able. This has emboldened other terrorist entities which have expressed their support of ISIS and their adoption of allying with ISIS and recognizing them as the rightful representatives of the coming Caliphate and their subservience to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the new Caliph and the chosen one to lead all of Sunni Islam in their renewed and final quest to place the entirety of the world under Islamic rule with the application of Sharia throughout the globe. There was the recent beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya by some group claiming allegiance with ISIS. This was just the latest group that announced their allegiance to ISIS by conducting some barbaric slaughter of innocents.

 

The central core group of ISIS in Iraq yesterday murdered 45 Iraqis by burning them alive in the town of Al-Baghdadi, Iraq. Col. Qasim al-Obeidi of the Iraqi military told the media that the identities of the victims have yet to be ascertained. As of the latest reports yesterday, the compound housing the families of security personnel as well as local officials is now under siege by ISIS forces. The town of Al-Baghdadi has been under siege itself for months before finally falling last Thursday and is a mere eight kilometers from Ain al-Asad airbase, where 320 US Marines are training the Iraqi army’s 7th Division and had come under assault by ISIS over the weekend but were fortunately able to repel the assault forcing the ISIS forces to retreat back to the area around the town of Al-Baghdadi. The murder by ISIS of the 45 Iraqis was a serious and horrific event made all the worse in that they were incinerated by the ISIS barbarous terrorists, an event at least as barbarous as the incineration of the Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh who they had captured after his F-16 fighter jet was shot down, the first such shoot down since the coalition air campaign began. This has become the signature method being used from all of the terror outfits claiming allegiance to ISIS because, apparently, merely beheading their victims apparently is not horrific enough and does not sufficiently infuriate and strike fear to the rest of the world. The ISIS affiliated monsters are aiming for the most horrific and dehumanizing methods used purely to be the revolting and appalling while producing the greatest amount of fear in their target regions, both the western society and the areas directly at threat from their forces. The burning of the Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh and the beheading of the 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya has succeeded in producing a reaction, a reaction which should be produced the world over, but thus far only generated a reaction from the King Abdullah II ibn al-Hussein of Jordan and his subjects as well as President Sisi of Egypt; each leader promising to make the ISIS aligned terrorists pay for their inhumanity in slaughtering their countrymen in horrific and dehumanizing fashion which was revolting and abhorrent to them and the nations populations.

 

The question that the Jordanian President, the Egyptian President, the peoples of Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and countless others are asking themselves is what exactly it will take to arouse the wills of the people around the world and especially with the nations with the military might to defeat the ever growing terrorist forces allying with ISIS, a change in attitude which has yet to even show the slightest indication it is a force of will that is even sparked, let alone spreading a demand like wildfire. The longer that the world waits before addressing this noxious pestilence the more difficult the warfare and the greater the cost in treasure and lives any conflict to destroy the numerous and growing scourge will take. Meanwhile, the United States Congress has been requested to grant President Obama a limited and peculiar use of American military might which the President calls Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF and decided to be pronounced Oomph by people in Washington D.C. or New York or wherever trends are given their accepted pronunciations). The AUMF legislation requests that the authorization to use force against terrorists which was granted to President George W. Bush after the attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and another Washington D.C. target by Flight 93 which the passengers fought back causing the terrorists to crash the plane in a field in southwestern Pennsylvania and replace it with a new authorization. This new AUMF has some peculiarities which have many in the Congress spooked and confused which will probably have Congress questioning the parameters seeking clarifications on the particulars in the legislation before them. The AUMF seeks to allow for continued United States participation in efforts to degrade ISIS capabilities through airstrikes, training forces in Iraq and Syria with all actions limited to three years and with no restriction as to locations where such authorization for use of military force might be restricted calling for targeting any “associated persons or forces.” It has been reported that the Republicans are planning to seek stronger and more expansive powers and removal of any time limitations concerning the use of force to defeat and destroy ISIS forces wherever they may be found while the Democrats seek to add additional limitations to assure that there can never be ground forces utilized against ISIS, probably to include special forces, the only boots on the ground the White House had mentioned they might consider deploying. Whatever the end results, the clarifications and alterations to the President’s request promises to take months before everybody will be able to agree and pass appropriate legislation which will provide the limitations the President desires and the allowance for use of additional levels of force even to include the possibility for boots on the ground as well as the removal of the three years limitation after which new legislation would be required even to continue the air campaign or training of Iraqi, Syrian or other troops or forces. This diddling around and parsing of time tables, language and extents for use of force will only serve to strengthen ISIS with the addition of who knows how many additional terrorist entities as well as the swelling of their core forces in Syria and Iraq which have been detected to be receiving thousands if not tens of thousands of new recruits almost every week. The one limitation of ISIS which gives them a weakness which can be exploited has been their lack of air power. This is simply due to not having sufficient pilots as they have captured two airbases and has gained a number of aircraft but simply ISIS had nobody who can fly them with any degree of competence. That begs the question of how long before we see pilots landing at the airbases under ISIS control and offering their special abilities granting ISIS with the airpower they lack. Such an addition would make ISIS a far more deadly force to be reckoned with and far more devastating with capabilities to soften targets before assaulting with ground forces.

 

There has been an additional potential of a growing threat by ISIS to work to replace Hamas and Fatah and replacing the Palestinian Authority with their claiming that the current forces under the Palestinian Authority, according to a pamphlet distributed in Gaza, Judea and Samaria last month, was made up of “the rule of tyranny and heresy.” They also called for a holy war, a jihad to depose those impure forces and their leadership such that ISIS could take their place and provide a superior and more Islamic rule fighting against the real enemy, Israel and the Jews and Christians, the infidel. This threat of ISIS comes as Fatah and Hamas have been slowly but surely escalating their levels of internecine violence. The escalating violence has seen numerous cars set on fire with a select number being exploded along with attempted assassinations by both sides but thus far the fighting has remained limited compared to some former disagreements which have caused violence in the past. Where this comes to a head is that there is a distinct possibility that ISIS may be fanning the flames to cause additional violence and escalating the conflict in the hope to have Hamas and Fatah cause each other sufficient damage making it that much easier for ISIS to replace both entities. Israel has already arrested and broken up one ISIS cell which was operating in Judea and Samaria and was preparing to make a strike on Israel which they planned to arrange for Fatah and the Palestinian Authority to take the blame. Should ISIS become the ruling entity in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, then Israel would have little if any choice but to take full control of the entirety of Gaza, Judea and Samaria in order to cleanse it of every last shred of ISIS influence. Israel could not permit nor allow a single day of ISIS rule being declared as the new Palestinian Authority engaging in jihad against Israel. Still, the safe bet is the world would then condemn Israel for fighting to rid the lands bordering Israel from the threats of ISIS. The claim would be that the ISIS forces which were facing off with Israel were the new and improved representatives of the Palestinian lands and Israel should immediately start to approach them in order to open a dialogue through which the establishment of an ISIS state bordering Israel with eastern Jerusalem as their capital city and the Green Line as their border. There would be protestations across all of Western society claiming that the ISIS residing in Gaza, Judea and Samaria was a totally different form of ISIS and has no connections with the real ISIS that the rest of the world is presumably battling. It is a very peculiar thing to watch the world change gears immediately whenever some terror group deploys forces to fight Israel, no matter what else or who else such a group has attacked or is currently fighting, any forces they utilize to fight against Israel become a separate entity which no matter what other problematic offences the parent group or even the actual terrorists fighting against Israel have committed, now that they are engaging Israel all former crimes against humanity are expunged and they are lionized and become the true face of the beleaguered Palestinian peoples. ISIS could easily force Hamas from Gaza and very probably expel Fatah from Judea and Samaria thus taking hold of both sides and claiming the title of savior of the Palestinian people and become the new chosen with whom Israel must engage in the next round of peace talks.

 

With a world that is unable to look an evil straight on and call it what it is, evil, there is little hope that ISIS will be dealt with in any timely manner, and that makes them potentially far more dangerous. What the world needs to face is that right now ISIS has a potential to become a formidable force which will have all the resources for warfare necessary to actually face a modern army but has yet to realize such power. As noted above, the main particular which ISIS is missing is an air force which it may eventually gain. They do not as of yet require any naval forces as they currently are situated at one of the central points in the world where Asia, Europe and Africa all merge. There is an awful lot of land to be brought under the rule of Islam before ISIS would need a naval force. There are some forces which can currently destroy ISIS at its core if they had the will. Turkey could reduce ISIS to dust if they chose to intervene but if ISIS is permitted further growth, then it is going to require far more force to eradicate. Another potential faction of ISIS which remains unknown is how many people could ISIS call to battle who still live within any potential nation or they have assigned to form militias that sit silently just waiting for the order to strike soft targets in any nation possibly causing many leaders to pause and consider if they really want to push fate tempting these hidden jihadists to run amuck within their borders. Such a threat could easily be a real force to have to face, especially when some of these cells consist of youths who had become disaffected with their lives and were secretly brought under control and left in their homeland to strike from within their own communities. Such cells could easily exceed the limits of power held by the police departments in their location. Some cells might even have infiltrated the police so as to weaken their abilities to counter any terrorist threats, especially if the police in the field are given bad information setting up a location for the terrorists’ next strike. ISIS is metastasizing and spreading like a disease throughout the body. ISIS currently has mostly infected parts of the Middle East and is spreading across northern Africa. As long as ISIS is kept from reaching the Saudi Arabian oil fields the Western nations will still have a period of grace before facing real difficulties and thus still be capable of intervening and ending the ISIS threat and follow that up by ending the threats of the many terror cells within their own borders before they grow to become a real threat and menace to their society.

 

The biggest threat would be terror cells that may have infiltrated the police or those who have infiltrated the military. Such cells pose a danger which would be a force multiplier if utilized to their full potential. One only need look at history to realize how a small band which is well organized can become a force which the world might not succeed in defeating such a force. All the dithering and posturizing now will only serve to strengthen ISIS as they grow stronger given more time. Theirs is a long war attitude where they can simply continue to apply force until they finally break their opposition’s ranks of troops granting them a victory and even more important it can provide them with the necessary tools to continue to threaten all of Western civilization. One needs to remember that the Ottoman Empire started with a small core group from northeastern Turkey and spread across most of the Muslim lands and remained a threat until World War I. Their Caliphate lasted through the nineteenth century and could marshal a large force of manpower and was only finally defeated by the combined forces of the allies in World War I. Does the world really desire to allow ISIS to grow to be that powerful? The threat of ISIS needs to be eradicated now while they are still growing and spreading the seeds of Islam, a true and pure Islam which will subjugate their populations constantly growing in strength as those who have fallen to ISIS realize how much they had relied upon their government for the daily necessities such as trash removal, water and electrical service and a myriad of other services and conveniences. The longer the world waits before removing the ISIS threat, the more damage that will be done and at some point ISIS will cross a threshold as they gather strength and become a much greater threat. Nobody knows what that threshold will be, so ISIS will continue to grow and gain more and more followers as they succeed and the world appears to be frightened and loathed to stand against them. This perception is what feeds ISIS and is the visual they are showing the world, a picture which shows the world trembling before the threats of ISIS, it is no wonder that ISIS is gaining recruits in such numbers and gaining the allegiance of so many youths seeking to leave their mark on the world. Stop waiting and extinguish this threat while it is still in its infancy because if it ever reaches full growth it may not be defeated as easily. There is precious little time left and already ISIS has grown to the point they can confront and defeat many of the armies of nations they are currently threatening such as Niger, Cameroon, Chad and many other North African nations. ISIS does pose a real and tangible threat already and is not that far from becoming a formidable threat with the capabilities beyond the power of many of the smaller nations lying before them. The western world with its advanced weapons had best consider how they would desire to face ISIS, do they prefer to keep them at a distance and defeat them or would they prefer ISIS on their border threatening their wives and children? The time to destroy ISIS is now, before they threaten our loved ones.

The media coverage has been very interesting in a peculiar and unnerving manner since the presence of ISIS exploded out of Syria onto the front pages and lead stories on every media form informing of the current events and especially the atrocities perpetrated almost daily under presumably false pretense in the name of Islam. I honestly believe and know that there are a great majority of Muslims who are just as unsettled and repulsed by the actions and displays of executions performed and proudly presented by ISIS. We saw two proud and upstanding Muslims who as followers of Islam worked and did all they were able, one giving his life, to protect and save lives in the three days of horrors in Paris during the Charlie Hebdo terror slaughters just last month. Officer Ahmed Merabet, a Muslim police officer who arrived to the scene and attempted to stop further mayhem, paid for his efforts with his life. Badly injured from shots taken in an initial exchange of fire, Officer Ahmed Merabet raised his empty hands signaling that he was unarmed and posed no threat to their escape yet was mercilessly shot one last time directly to the head by one of the brothers, whose names we will not honor with mention, went out of his way to commit the execution. Additionally, Lassana Bathily represented the other face of Islam when he harbored many of the patrons in Hyper Cacher kosher market sheltering them inside the freezer after raising the temperature and then facilitated police efforts by giving them vital information which assisted the authorities in timing and executing their final assault ending that stand-off. The complete story as we covered can be read at “Two Faces of Islam in Charlie Hebdo Attacks.” The problem is that news always gives a jaundiced view on every facet of society as their product demands that they cover the worst of human misery or violence as if they covered the news by reporting that at Main Street and Third Avenue there were no accidents and the traffic light functioned perfectly; who would read or watch such coverage.

 

Yet the coverage given by much of the mainstream media, especially such as the BBC (British Broadcasting Company), AFP (Agency France Press), FOX, CNN (Cable News Network) and too many others, has given titles exclaiming horrific headlines using expletives expressing their revulsion of the scenes they are either about to broadcast or describe in every minute and despicable detail of the latest disgusting deeds of ISIS or the further devastation across Syria. The stories are enough to turn even the strongest of stomachs to churning with uneasy nausea from images which the steeliest of gazes must turn aside and the coverage informs that ISIS affronts deserve societal sanction and the use of military force to prevent their spreading their horror any further and subjugating even more people to such horrors and injustices. Yet many of these very same newscasts will report on the importance of allowing the Palestinian Authority to found their own nation in the “West Bank” and Gaza, and note their use of the Jordanian invented terminology for the expressed purpose of removing any Jewish historic identity to the actual names, Judea and Samaria, and make stealing the historic heartlands of the ancient Hebrew homelands to form a terror state which subjects their own people and any Israelis they are able to victimize using horrors equal in revulsion and barbarity as ISIS has used but somehow the mainstream news manages to turn their heads and ignore what occurs right before their cameras and the views of their reporters and camera crews. For the doubters, perhaps a few examples from the recent past which have largely been ignored as such does not fit the story of inhuman denials of decency by Israel and the righteous longing of the Palestinian Arabs for a state in their ancient lands dating back years uncountable, largely because there never has been such an Arab state ever in these lands thus no such days exist, let alone years.

 

The current horrific murder by ISIS was the absolutely horrific burning to death the Jordanian Pilot, who was a prisoner of war who should have been treated with certain assurances and decencies as dictated by the Geneva Convention, who was placed in an iron cage in gasoline soaked orange jumpsuit above gasoline soaked sands with a stream of gasoline soaked sand tailing to two men who lighted the ditch which resulted in the scene which most of us have chosen not to watch for we are of sensitivities to which we defer when possible and refuse to view such inhumanity of those who have regressed to such depravities. The news story for the Jordanian pilot’s fate has been given wall to wall coverage, as it deserves. A story just as horrific was all but ignored by the international news services and never got a first play in most markets, let alone second coverage or similar emphasis as the Jordanian pilot’s story. I am speaking of Ayala Shapira and her father, Avner Shapira, who were almost burned to death and young Ayala remains in the hospital, an eleven year old girl who had been full of life and now has recently been removed from a ventilator and is able to breath on her own but still must use nonverbal communication when communicating with her parents. Ayala was caught in the car where an Arab in Judea or Samaria violently threw a Molotov cocktail through the vehicle window of the family vehicle which exploded in her lap covering her entire body in flames trapping her in the vehicle until her father grasped her free of the car and extinguished the flames saving her life but leaving her with burns over more than three-quarters of her body and nearly causing her death. She is facing a future which will include who knows how many operations to reconstruct her body and attempt to rehabilitate her face returning her at least to a resemblance of her former soft and gentle features. In the more immediate future she will not be attending school and missing being with her friends or any other vestige of a normal life of such a young girl. Her horrors and the violent savagery of her attack equaled that of the Jordanian pilot with one major difference; Ayala was simply driving home with her father and was not operating a fighter-bomber jet aircraft in a war zone when she was set on fire. We covered her tragic story in the editorial named, “May These be the Last Victims of this and All Intifada.”

 

Those of us who have followed the atrocities committed by ISIS have read of their throwing homosexuals from rooftops simply for their sexual preferences. Certainly no such atrocities have been committed by any other entities. Well, not so much actually. After Hamas in Gaza fought the fifty day war with Israel this past summer they performed some cleansing where they took the liberty of removing some of the leadership from Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah Party. The preferred means of removing these undesirable political individuals are by two methods largely, shooting them as they kneeled before their executioner who would walk down a line of fellow Palestinian Arabs from a different political party shooting each in the back of their heads or by taking them to the tops of buildings and tossing them off. The slaughter in Gaza was not given lengthy coverage as such was not a story which fit any narrative or support any government or media interests thus was relegated to non-news items. We have heard about the horrific murders of women in Pakistan, Afghanistan and other nations in the Middle East yet seldom are those same honor killings committed by Palestinian Arabs given similar coverage as the Palestinians are a protected class of people who must not be made to appear barbaric or overtly violent in any way as to relate their actual actions would turn Israeli actions from highly suspect to completely understandable. There has been coverage of stonings across the Middle East where people have been stoned to death for heresy, converting to Christianity from Islam, adultery or various other crimes according to Sharia. The attempted stoning by Palestinian Arabs of vehicles with Israeli license plates assuming they are driven and occupied by Jews are derived from similar motivations, the killing of those from outside Islam viewed to be threats to the supremacy of Islam and not bowed to its rule. Some of these ‘stones’ are the size of cinderblocks capable of smashing through windshields and causing the cars to be crashed and too often resulting in death or severe injuries requiring prolonged hospitalization. In a story we looked back at some of the stoning assaults including the pictures of Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan who were victims of just such an assault as they drove by one of these ambushes as well as a picture of United States Representative Eliot Engel and Representative Jerrold Nadler with Representative Nadler holding the rock which was hurled onto them from an overarching cliff overlooking the Mount of Olives Cemetery as they were ascending to view certain graves and pay respects honoring them which can be read in an article titled “Boko Haram Erases Nigerian City of Baga from the Map.” I ask now, exactly what is the difference between the actions and violence committed by ISIS and committed by Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and the other Arab terror groups operating in Gaza, Judea and Samaria and why Israel must stand down while much of the world is bombing their terror enemies.
