Terrorists Do Their Worst
The captors recorded al-Kaseasbeh’s purposeful immolation. First, he was drenched in accelerant. Then, his Islamic State (ISIS) inhuman beasts lit the liquid fuse setting the lieutenant ablaze. The captors, thoroughly enjoying his unbridled writhing, filmed the entire wrath of agony in his inhuman death. They knew terrorist propaganda had been achieved.
Per Pew Research Center, Americans cite terrorism as the 2015 top-priority.
Terrorism is on a major rise. Carrying out extreme severity, these listed ten terrorist groups are the biggest threat to civilization. Their unparalleled barbarism with their violently twisted understanding of religion and politics puts every group listed here on the most-wanted list by world governments:
#10: Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC)
#9: Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK)
#8: HAMAS (Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia)
#7: Hezbollah (Lebanese terror group)
#6: al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria and Lebanon)
#5: Boko-Haram (Nigerian terror group)
#4: Pakistani Taliban (Pakistan-Afghan border)
#3: Taliban (in Afghanistan; active support by Al-Qaeda)
#2: Al-Qaeda (biggest among all terrorist groups, established 1989 by Bin Laden).
#1: Islamic State; (ISIL or ISIS, controlling northern parts of Iraq and Western Syria.
These terror groups alone threaten over a billion people.
Other Terrorist Organizations
Other groups are developing quickly. Just recently the State Department had a meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood here in the U.S. Now, it’s admitting it was hosted by the Center for the Study of Islam having numerous ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, other terrorist groups.
The Islamic State is “happy”, because ISIS has emerged as a global threat. This from Ahmad Rashidi, after escaping his Islamic captors within a month. While embedded with the Islamic State, he accessed their computers. He told NBC’s Richard Engel, ISIS communicates with its contacts “every day.”
Rashidi shocked everyone by giving ISIS’s true goals: “They want to be more . . . better than al-Qaeda. This is why they need to do something more brutal than the World Trade Center.”
Shortly after the State Department met their group, the Muslim Brotherhood called on “uncompromising jihad” against Egypt. Front groups are here in America: Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Students’ Association (MSA), as well as Hamas and Hezbollah. The Brotherhood has been funding all of their operations.
A year ago, retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney, the Commander of U.S. Air Forces/Europe, announced the presence of Muslim Brotherhood inside the government. McInerney’s assertions are outlined in Impeachable Offenses, authored by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott.
Lately, Obama met behind closed doors at the WH with 14 Muslim-Americans to discuss civil rights, anti-Muslim bias, and extremism. This was the first time a president held a meeting with Muslim-American leaders.
This occurrence was particularly disturbing knowing how Obama views the Crusades: “Lest we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”
Obama’s Warped View Of Crusades
Franklin Graham and Catholic League President Bill Donohue condemned Obama for comparing ISIL’s barbarities to alleged “terrible deeds” from Christians in the Crusades. Per Donohue: “The Crusades were a defensive Christian reaction against Muslim madmen of the Middle Ages … Regarding the other fable, the Inquisition, the Catholic Church had almost nothing to do with it.”
Bottom line, 11 separate Crusades were conducted by the Church between 1095 and 1492. All said, only the first four Crusades were blessed and condoned by sitting popes. Finally in 1492, Boabdil—the last Muslim ruler in Spain—surrendered to Isabel and Ferdinand, in what was called the Reconquista.
Obama wouldn’t acknowledge the Muslim aggression prompting the first Crusade. The only Crusade motivation was Muslims attacking Christian pilgrims
traveling to the Holy Land for worship. Per Bernard Lewis, Islam Historian, the Crusades only attempted to recover territories taken by the Muslims.
‘High Horse’ Criticism
From Fox News, the African-American Bishop E. W. Jackson called out: “Mr. President, we’re not on our ‘high horse.’ What we are on is high alert, and the American people would like for once to know that you’re willing to defend Christianity and defend America instead of defending Islam.”
Bishop Jackson served in the Marine Corps, earning a law degree from Harvard Law School and entering the ministry, continued: “this president does everything he possibly can to defend Islam and does almost nothing to defend the honor of this country.”
According to Egypt, ISIS has created an umbrella army with the Taliban, Al Shabab, Al-Qaida, and local jihadist groups from Yemen, Mali, Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan and the Egyptian Sinai.
ISIS and extremist allies currently boast an army estimated by Egypt to consist of 180,000 Islamist fighters, six times greater than CIA estimated. Kurdish intelligence believes ISIS fighters to number at least 200,000.
Obama never acknowledged Muslim aggression started the first Crusade. And his insults to Christians weren’t any slip of the tongue. Aides confirmed his words were deliberately chosen.
Muhammad was a warrior, and killed many innocent people in his Islamic quest. True followers of Christ emulated Christ — true followers of Muhammad emulated Muhammad.
A different Crusade, but a Muslim Crusade, nonetheless.
