Kerry Building Coalition To Defeat ISIS. Will It Work?

Islamic State crisis: Kerry in Paris to continue campaign

US Secretary of State John Kerry speaks during a press conference in Cairo, Egypt - 13 September 2014John Kerry has managed to secure the support of 10 Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar
US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Paris after a four-day tour of the Middle East trying to build a coalition to defeat Islamic State (IS).
Nearly 40 countries, including 10 Arab states, have signed up to a US-led plan to tackle the extremist group.
France is hosting a regional security summit on Monday.
However, the US refused to allow key regional player Iran to attend, prompting Tehran to dismiss the talks as "just for show".
Last week, US President Barack Obama presented a strategy to fight IS in both Iraq and Syria.
Barbara Plett-Usher says Egypt and the US are united against a common threat
IS controls large parts of both countries and the CIA estimates that the group could have as many as 30,000 fighters in the region.
US air strikes have targeted IS in Iraq in recent weeks and President Obama has vowed to "hunt down" the group after it beheaded two American journalists.
Late on Saturday a video was also released appearing to show the beheading of UK hostage David Haines.
Mr Kerry arrived at Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris after flying from Cairo, where he met Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi.
He said that Egypt was "on the frontline of the fight against terrorism" and had a "critical role to play in publicly renouncing the ideology that IS disseminates".

On Monday, French President Francois Hollande will welcome diplomats from up to 20 countries for a conference on Iraqi security.
The talks come ahead of a UN Security Council meeting next week and a heads of state meeting at the UN General Assembly later this month.
Iran unimpressed
One country not attending is Iran, which voiced its unhappiness at not being on the "selective guest list" by dismissing the talks as "just for show".

Admiral Ali ShamkhaniSenior Iranian official
"What would interest Iran is a real fight against terrorism in the region and around the world, not this selective one," deputy foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told state television.
On Friday, Mr Kerry said the US would not be seeking the involvement of Iran in its coalition because of its "engagement in Syria and elsewhere".
Iran has backed the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, while the US and several European and Gulf countries have supported the rebel factions fighting to overthrow him.
The US stance was attacked in Iran, with one senior official accusing the US of playing a "central role" in "arming and training terrorist groups to topple the legal Syrian government".
"In taking a big jump ahead of international bodies, America seeks to emerge as a Hollywood-style hero battling a crisis of its own making," Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, told state news agency IRNA.
Iraq air strikes
In recent months IS has expanded from its stronghold in eastern Syria and seized control of more towns, cities, army bases and weaponry in Iraq.
The US has already carried out more than 150 air strikes in northern Iraq. It has also sent hundreds of military advisers to assist Iraqi government and Kurdish forces, but has ruled out sending ground troops.
Syria and its ally Russia have warned that any unilateral US military action on Syrian territory would be a violation of its sovereignty.
Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered his forces to halt their air strikes on civilian areas under IS control on Saturday.
Correspondents say this is probably an attempt by Mr Abadi to win support for his Shia-led government from Sunni Muslims who had demanded a freeze on military action on civilian areas.
The violence in Iraq in recent months is thought to have displaced an estimated 1.2 million people.

ISIS Might Be Good At Cutting Throats. It Is Not Good At Firing Cannons!

Hilarious: ISIS Tries to Fire a Cannon… Watch What Happens Next

ZISISIf we had a halfway competent president, we could squash these cockroaches. But with President Momjeans at the helm, why should they fear America?
This video posted on shows a hilarious attempt by ISIS nutjobs to shoot a cannon. What ensues is comical and something that one might expect to happen to Wile E. Coyote.
According to therightscoop, the words spoken as the cannon is fired is an Islamic prayer that recognizes that Allah is guiding the projectile. Apparently, Allah is not too happy with these terrorists distorting his words for their gain.
What this video demonstrates is that while the Western world remains endangered by radical Islamists such as ISIS or Al Qaeda, they are far from competent and far from being well-funded.

We are the most powerful nation on Earth, even despite Democrat efforts to weaken us. We are the best-funded, the best-trained, most-powerful military force the world has ever known and while armed conflict should be carefully considered before we take action, when and if the time comes, it’s clear that we could blow these clowns back to the stone age.
However, doing so would require a president with courage and a spine and one that has the humility to let the military do what the military does.
Instead, we have a military populated by brave men and women, but controlled by a community organizer who micromanages and undermines military decisions for political gain.

Please share on Facebook and Twitter if you think President Obama is not taking ISIS seriously enough.

If Only Obama Paid As Much Attention To World Events As He Does Golf, We Would Be In Much Better Shape.

Obama's Golf Rarely Idled by World Events

At this month’s NATO meeting in Wales, President Barack Obama spent two days tantalizingly close to one of the planet’s great golf courses.
The president could only gaze through the windows of conference rooms, limousines and helicopters at the fairways at Celtic Manor Resort, where he was meeting with leaders from the alliance. His schedule never allowed a swing on the storied landscape that hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010.
His first day back in Washington, Obama grabbed his clubs and spent four hours playing at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, a favorite haunt where he golfed the previous weekend as well.
While on vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, last month Obama, 53, golfed on nine of his 14 days. That includes the two days he drew criticism for scooting out to play right after giving nationally televised statements responding to unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and the beheading of a U.S. journalist by Islamic State extremists.
He has become, like many leaders in business and government, something of a golf fanatic.
“When you look at some of the research on leisure, and there isn’t a lot of it, there is this view of work hard-play hard,” Brigid Schulte, author of “Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The Time,” said in an interview. “Sometimes people who are the most driven and work the hardest also play the hardest.”
Missing Rounds
Obama doesn’t always get his fix.
On Labor Day weekend, Obama was scheduled to attend a fundraiser and stay overnight in Westchester County, New York, before attending the wedding of the first family’s personal chef, Sam Kass, and MSNBC host Alex Wagner.
Westchester is home to four of the top-20 golf courses in the state, according to Golf Digest. The schedule conveniently would have left time for at least nine holes.
He instead returned to Washington for the night. New York’s WNBC-TV, citing sources it didn’t identify, said several courses declined to give him a tee time because it would disrupt reservations of their members. The White House staff said Obama came back to the White House because he had work to do.
At the start of his term in 2009, Obama favored pick-up basketball games with his buddies, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan. He’s now almost completely switched to the more leisurely sport.
The president has golfed 38 times so far this year and 195 times since taking office in 2009, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who keeps detailed records of presidential activities.
Presidential Golf
The pace doesn’t put Obama anywhere near other golf- addicted presidents.
Woodrow Wilson, president during World War I, played about 1,200 rounds, according to biographer A. Scott Berg. Dwight Eisenhower, who made the game popular in the U.S. and had a putting green installed on the White House’s South Lawn, clocked in at about 800 rounds in his eight years in office, according to the U.S. Golf Association.
It’s a hobby that’s long been fodder for critics.
Obama’s immediate predecessor and another regular golfer, George W. Bush, came in for criticism in 2002 when he delivered a denunciation of terrorism while at a golf course and then followed up by telling reporters, “Now watch this drive,” before teeing off.
He gave up the game in 2003 because, he said later, playing while the U.S. was at war in Iraq sent the wrong message. He took up mountain biking as an alternate activity to get away on weekends.
Obama Undeterred
Obama plays on, undeterred by criticism from commentators and political opponents.
The president has a small circle of regular golfing buddies that includes White House aides, athletes and political donors - - all sworn not to reveal his handicap. He typically spends four to five hours playing 18 holes. It’s time he’s away from the prying eyes of the press, who accompany him to the courses -- usually on military bases near Washington -- but are holed up sitting in vehicles or a base lounge.
Obama doesn’t forget about the rest of his job while on the golf course, former deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton said in an article last month.
“We should all be able to appreciate the fact that he is taking the opportunity to be a dad, a husband and even a leader of the free world who can clear his head on the golf course,” Burton wrote in a piece published Aug. 25 in Politico.
Golf Compulsions
While it’s possible to have a so-called process addiction, or a compulsion to do something repeatedly, five hours a week hardly rises to that level, said Stacey Rosenfeld, a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in eating disorders and addictions.
“I don’t think it’s the amount of time that designates whether or not it’s a problem,” said Rosenfeld, who is licensed to practice in New York and California. “It’s like alcohol. It’s more your relationship to the behavior.”
Golf or any other activity would become a problem if it interfered with family or work, causing a person to lose control of what they want or need to do, said Anne Fletcher, author of “Inside Rehab” about addiction treatment.
“There’s no question that people can suffer from compulsive engagement in other kinds of behaviors other than drug and alcohol use,” she said. “The characteristic of addiction is loss of control.”
That doesn’t appear to be the case with Obama, who is juggling conflicts in Syria and Iraq and Ukraine and racial and immigration-related tensions at home.
“I don’t see any evidence that our president is failing to meet his obligations,” Fletcher said.
Obama’s golf failures in Wales and in Westchester are exceptions. He’s sampled many great courses.
On Martha’s Vineyard, he played at Vineyard Golf Club and Farm Neck Golf Club. Vineyard, in Edgartown, bills itself as the only “organic” golf course in the U.S., using no synthetic pesticides, fertilizers or herbicides. Farm Neck, in Oak Bluffs, borders the sea and was also a choice of President Bill Clinton.
What Obama missed in Westchester include Winged Foot West in Mamaroneck, rated no. 2 in New York by Golf Digest and designed by golf course architect A. W. Tillinghast, or Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, rated no. 10 and built on land George Washington traversed during the Revolutionary War.

Missouri Passes A Gun Rights Bill That Makes Perfect Sense.

Missouri Legislature Overrides Governor’s Veto Of Bill Permitting Armed Teachers

Missouri Legislature Overrides Governor’s Veto Of Bill Permitting Armed Teachers

Both chambers of the Missouri legislature this week accomplished an override of Democratic Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of a bill expanding both concealed and open carry rights at schools in the Show Me State.
Nixon had vetoed SB 656 in July, arguing that training educational staff to carry concealed firearms on campus “would not make our schools safer” and that only school resource officers should be allowed to possess weapons on school grounds.
The bill  provides for school boards to designate “one or more school teachers or administrators as a school protection officer” after holding a public hearing, requiring the employee to complete a MPOSTC-approved training program, and sharing all information about the resource officers with the state Department of Public Safety. It also provides criminal penalties if a school protection officer fails to secure his weapon while at work.
The Senate overturned Nixon on a partisan 23-8 vote. The House followed suit a day later, overriding the veto Thursday on a bipartisan 117-39 vote.
The bill also does a number of other things, as summarized by The Missouri Times’ Collin Reischman:
An omnibus bill dealing with firearms, Nixon vetoed this bill for it’s provisions allowing schools to designate and train a “school protection officer,” to legally carry a firearm on school property. The bill also lowers the minimum age for a CCW permit from 21 to 19. The bill also prohibits health care professionals from asking about requiring asking a patient about firearm ownership or recording and/or reporting such ownership to a government entity. The bill also addresses so-called “open carry” law. Under the bill, local governments will not be able to prohibit CCW holders from engaging in open carry practices. Democratic Senators Scott Sifton and Jolie Justus spent nearly two hours discussing the bill in a semi-filibuster. The bill ultimately passed by a vote of 23-8 along party lines.

Feminists Might Want To Become Aware Of Islam's Horrible Attitude Toward Women. Before They Become A Sabi

Muslims Sexually Enslaving Children: A Global Phenomenon

As shocking as the Muslim-run sex ring in Rotherham, England may seem to some—1,400 British children as young as 11 plied with drugs before being passed around and sexually abused in cabs and kabob shops—the fact is that this phenomenon is immensely widespread.  In the United Kingdom alone, it’s the fifth sex abuse ring led by Muslims to be uncovered.
Some years back in Australia, a group of “Lebanese Muslim youths” were responsible for a “series of brutal gang rapes” of “Anglo-Celtic teenage girls.” A few years later in the same country, four Muslim Pakistani brothers raped at least 18 Australian women, some as young as 13.  Even in the United States, a gang of Somalis—Somalia being a Muslim nation where non-Muslims, primarily Christians, are ruthlessly persecuted—was responsible for abducting, buying, selling, raping and torturing young American girls as young as 12.
The question begs itself: If Muslim minorities have no fear of exploiting “infidel” women and children in non-Muslim countries—that is, where Muslims themselves are potentially vulnerable minorities—how are Muslims throughout the Islamic world, where they are dominant, treating their vulnerable, non-Muslim minorities?
The answer is a centuries-longcontinents-wide account of nonstop sexual predation.  Boko Haram’s recent abduction and enslavement of nearly 300, mostly Christian, schoolgirls last April in Nigeria is but the tip of the iceberg.
The difference between what happens in Nigeria and what happens in Western nations is based on what I call “Islam’s Rule of Numbers.”  Wherever Muslims grow in numbers, Islamic phenomena intrinsic to the Muslim world—in this case, the sexual abuse of “infidel” children and teenagers—comes along with them.
Thus in the United Kingdom, where Muslims make for a sizeable—and notable—minority, the systematic rape of “subhuman infidels” naturally takes place.  But when caught, Muslim minorities, being under “infidel” authority, cry “Islamophobia” and feign innocence.
In Nigeria, however, which is roughly 50 percent Islamic, such “apologetics” are unnecessary.  After seizing the nearly 300 schoolgirls, the leader of Boko Haram appeared on videotape boasting that “I abducted your girls. I will sell them on the market, by Allah….  There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.”
It’s the same in Pakistan—the nation where many of the United Kingdom’s Muslims, including the majority involved in the Rotherham sex ring, come from.  See this article for a long list of Christian children—as young as 2-years-old—who were targeted by Muslim men for abduction, enslavement, and rape.  In every single case, police do nothing except sometimes side with the Muslim rapists against their “infidel” victims.
For example, last Easter Sunday, four Muslim men gang-raped a 7-year-old Christian girl named Sara, leaving her in “critical condition.”  According to Asia News, “the police, instead of arresting the culprits, helped the local clan to kidnap the girl’s father… to ‘force the family not to report the story, to reach an agreement with the criminals and to avoid a dispute of a religious background.’”
As for systematic child grooming, in 2010, Kiran George, a Christian girl who was “enslaved by a woman, Sama, a dealer of youth to be sold as prostitutes or slaves to wealthy Muslim families,” was doused with gasoline by a police officer involved in the sex ring, set on fire, and burned to death.
And a recent report confirms that “an estimated 700 cases [of abduction, enslavement, and/or rape in Pakistan] per year involve Christian women, 300 Hindu girls”—very large numbers when one considers that Christians and Hindus each make for one percent of the population of Pakistan, which is about 97 percent Muslim.
One can go on and on.  In 2011 a Christian group in Muslim-majority Egypt
exposed a highly organized Muslim ring centered in the Fatah Mosque in Alexandria. The investigation also uncovered a systematic “religious call” plan, where young Muslim males in high school and university are urged to approach Coptic girls in the 9-15 age group and manipulate them through sexual exploitation and blackmail. The plan … aims at sexually compromising Christian girls, defiling them and humiliating them in front of their parents, thereby forcing them to flee their homes, and use conversion to Islam as a “solution” for their problems.
Approximately 550 Coptic Christian girls have been abducted and sexually abused by Muslim men during the last three years—especially under the Muslim Brotherhood’s aegis, when sexual crimes were particularly widespread.
So what animates this phenomenon of Muslim on non-Muslim rape?  And we must call it Muslim rape since Islam is the common denominator in all these cases from otherwise diverse nations that have little in common except for large numbers of Muslims.
As for the pedophilia aspect, Muhammad—the prophet of Islam whom the Koran exhorts Muslims to emulate in every possible way—was “betrothed” to a six-year-old girl, Aisha, “consummating” their marriage when she was nine-years-old.   Accordingly, Islam’s clerics routinely defend child “marriage”—sometimes even if the girl is still in the cradle—based on the example of the prophet.
As for the subhuman treatment of “infidel” children, this is seen as a right by supremacist Muslims.  Discussing the 2010 rape of a 9-year-old Christian girl, local sources in Pakistan put it well: “It is shameful. Such incidents occur frequently. Christian girls are considered goods to be damaged at leisure.  Abusing them is a right. According to the [Muslim] community’s mentality it is not even a crime. Muslims regard them as spoils of war.”
“Spoils of war” is quite correct. Here is how the late Majid Khadduri, “internationally recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on Islamic law and jurisprudence,” explained the idea of “spoils” in his War and Peace in the Law of Islam:
The term spoil (ghanima) is applied specifically to property acquired by force from non-Muslims. It includes, however, not only property (movable and immovable) but also persons, whether in the capacity of asra (prisoners of war) or sabi (women and children). … If the slave were a woman, the master was permitted to have sexual connection with her as a concubine.
Nor is this limited to academic talk.  Last year, Jordanian Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni  said Muslims fighting to topple “infidel” president Bashar Assad in Syria are permitted to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women, including Shia Muslims, Alawites, Christians, Druze, and Yazidis.
Before him, Egyptian Sheikh Ishaq Huwaini lamented how during the heydays of Islam, “You [could] go to the market and buy her [enslaved, infidel concubines for sale]….  In other words, when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”
In order to eliminate sexual immorality from among male Muslim youth, Kuwaiti political activist Salwa al-Mutairi suggested the formal reinstitution of sex-slavery—not unlike what was recently exposed in Rotherham.  She said on video that Islam’s greatest authorities from Mecca, the city of Islam, all confirmed the legality of sex-slavery to her.  According to the Kuwaiti woman:
A Muslim state must [first] attack a Christian state—sorry, I mean any non-Muslim state—and they [the women, the future sex-slaves] must be captives of the raid. Is this forbidden? Not at all; according to Islam, sex slaves are not at all forbidden. Quite the contrary, the rules regulating sex-slaves differ from those for free women [i.e., Muslim women]: the latter’s body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on up—she is different from the free woman; the free woman has to be married properly to her husband, but the sex-slave—he just buys her and that’s that….  For example, in the Chechnya war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait; better that than have our men engage in forbidden sexual relations. I don’t see any problem in this, no problem at all.
What happened in Rotherham is hardly an aberration.  Rather, it is Islam coming to town, Muslims growing in numbers.   Even Dr. Taj Hargey, a British imam, just confirmed that the majority of the UK’s “imams promote grooming rings.”  He said Muslim men are taught that women are “second-class citizens, little more than chattels or possessions over whom they have absolute authority” and that the imams preach a doctrine “that denigrates all women, but treats whites with particular contempt.”
Change “whites” to “non-Muslims”—this is not about race but religion—and the experiences of those 1,400 children in Rotherham is one with the experiences of countless non-Muslim minorities throughout the Islamic world.
