IF one evaluates jihadi wildfires engulfing the world, at its epicenter is one constant and consistent component: Islam. Stipulated, geo-political maneuvers play a role wherever one turns, however, as always, there are leaders and followers. Twists and turns.
IN this regard, consider HUSSEIN Obama as an underwriter of both of Islam’s main ringleaders: ISIS as Sunni (Brotherhood’s) Islam’s “A Team”, Iran as Shia Islam’s counterweight, another “A Team.” They are both cooperating and opposing partners, and whether they fight each other or align depends upon who needs elimination. Regardless, their underlings are deemed junior varsity teams ala subcontractors and subsidiaries. The point being, other than the aforementioned key players, forget about the particular Islamic hydras under which they hoist their jihadi banners to satiate (pagan) Allah. After all, it matters not a whit because dead is dead.
NOW that that is settled, let’s point to the obvious: the empowerment of Iran as a nuclear state ensures that Iran’s killing machines wreck destruction and a scorched earth outcome for many generations to come. This is a fact, despite any spin otherwise from Obama Inc.’s henchpeople.
SIMILARLY, being a patron of ISIS obviates any rat a tat tat which Obama Inc.’s Pentagon is tasked to do. Water off a duck’s (terror) back. Therefore, it makes total sense that purging Christianity from the Mid East (and beyond) is a major component of their rampages. ISIS understands full well that nothing worth a damn will be done to stop them, especially via cutting off their MAIN fuel and oxygen, their income source. We will get to that.
EVEN more so, on the heels of said wholesale liquidation, the fact remains that the Islamist-in-Chief is waving Islamic “refugees” unfettered entry into the U.S., yet, denying shelter to persecuted Christians! Satan-in-Chief like.
SO it is hardly shocking that it is under HUSSEIN Obama’s very own umbrella that ISIS feels free to purge Christianity from Iraq, Syria, and so on and so forth. However, concomitantly, Islam’s adherents are heading towards American and Euro cities to stake their claims. Pray tell, what do they have in mind, will they take up knitting and quilting? Just askin’…Alas, once they find their “sanctuary cities” they will set up shop. Oh, my….
MOST significantly, a serious Commander-in-Chief would decapitate their financial revenue streams. Ya think?
THUS, as Iran’s genocidal regime salivates over billions in U.S. windfall dollars to refuel their terror apparatuses (including their WMD program) to the highest of heights, HUSSEIN Obama and his Iranian sycophant negotiator, John-the-Mullah-lover Kerry, dismiss all the naysayers concerns. Why is this?
Speaking to the BBC after the nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers was reached, Kerry said that the more than $100 billion that Iran is set to receive “is going to make all the difference in the world is just – it’s not true.”
Acknowledging Iran is an international player in wreaking terror across the globe, Kerry said, “What Iran has done for years with Hezbollah does not depend on money.” He similarly stated Iran’s support of the Houthi rebels against the government in Yemen has not “depended on money.”
“Sure, something may go additionally somewhere,” Kerry added. “But if President [Hasan] Rouhani and his administration do not [use the money to] take care of the people of Iran, they will have an enormous problem.”
Earlier this year, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted the U.S. would have no control over Iran’s use of monies freed by sanctions relief. However, he said it was “common sense” Iran would use the money to pump up its economy that was devastated by the international sanctions and not put the money into terrorism.
Still, Earnest said, “I’m not going to make any predictions about what they are going to do, and I’m certainly not going to be in a position to prescribe what they should do,” he said. “This is a sovereign country that will make their own decisions.”
Kerry contended it was the opinion of the U.S. intelligence community that Iranian money “that finds its way somewhere, is not the difference in what is happening in the Middle East.”
However, many contend that Kerry’s prognosis is not rooted in fact. Up until the 9/11 attack on the U.S. by Al Qaeda, the State Department reported Hezbollah was “responsible for more American deaths than any other terrorist group.”
In its most recent report, the State Department wrote, “Iran has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support of Lebanese Hezbollah in Lebanon and has trained thousands of its fighters at camps in Iran.”
In 2010 alone, State reported “Iran provides roughly $100-$200 million per year in funding to support Hezbollah.”
Efforts by Republicans in Congress to make the current deal contingent on Iran removing its support for terrorism failed earlier this year when U.S. President Barack Obama said he would veto any such legislation.
Meanwhile, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence services and the kingdom’s ambassador to the U.S. in Washington, said the current deal will result in Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon and “wreak havoc in the region.”
He also contended America’s traditional allies in the Arab world are now distrustful of the U.S. and looking elsewhere to make alliances. Writing in The Daily Star, a Lebanese newspaper, bin Sultan commented, “People in my region now are relying on God’s will and consolidating their local capabilities and analysis with everybody else except our oldest and most powerful ally.”
IN no small measure, what does this make the U.S., other than complicit in worldwide terror? In reality, America will not even be 3 degrees separated, that’s the truth.
STILL yet, (oh, no rest for the weary or wicked) we must revert back to ISIS and its bloody swathe across the region (and the world) and figure out what HUSSEIN Obama should be doing but has zero intention to execute. As to defanging the destroyers of western civilization, NO CAN DO!
BUT never mind all that, just pay heed to the master of the financial narco-terror domain, Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld:
Presidential candidate and billionaire businessman Donald Trump has the right idea regarding how to stop ISIS. “I would knock out the source of their wealth, the primary source of their wealth, which is oil,” he told MSNBC.
A year into it, the United States-led daily air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has done little, if anything, to stop the murderous Islamist group’s oil lifeline.
The U.S. Treasury Department estimated last month that ISIS netted at least $1 billion from public and private banks in the cities it overran. ISIS generates additional income from taxes, ransom, sexual slave trade, antiquities and the smuggling of everything. However, the revenues from oil and oil products fuel the umbilical cord of ISIS. According to the assistant secretary of treasury for terrorist financing, Daniel Glaser, ISIS has been making “about $500 million a year” from oil sales.
Soon after taking over Mosul, in June 2014, ISIS embarked on developing the oil trafficking business. The U.S. and its allies could have stopped this industry in its infancy, but chose not to. Since then, ISIS has even issued ads for highly paid refinery and rig operators….(blogger’s note: W T F ??)
While allied targeted bombing had reportedly killed a few ISIS leaders and hundreds of their easily replaceable fighters, they strangely did not target the easy-to-spot movement of hundreds of oil tankers and thousands of smaller vehicles on the same route daily. You’d think a continuous movement like this would not escape notice of the intelligence services given the war-torn landscape and the small number of border crossings into Turkey. Indeed, the failure to target ISIS oil fields and tankers is reminiscent of the allied forces’ reluctance to bomb the rail tracks that carried the trains packed with Jews to the Nazi concentration camps.
Dr. Norman Bailey, of the Center for National Security Studies and Geostrategy at Haifa University, has pointed out the obvious. “The Islamic State’s barbaric conquests are financed by collaborators among the business and financial circles of the West.” In his Globes online commentary, Bailey explains that the funds to pay for oil and oil products can be obtained in banknotes, only through the cooperation of a chain of “correspondent banks.”
Bailey rightly argues that the “oil buyers are readily found in the West and tanker trucks are permitted to reach ports where oil tankers are waiting to load it…All this requires ready, willing and able collaborators among the business and financial circles of the West as well as surrounding countries…. The buyers and the facilitators and the financiers are not that difficult to identify, so that if the opponents of Islamic State were really serious about doing something about it, along with the occasional bombing raid, the Islamic State could be starved of funds to continue its rampage of murder, destruction, rape and slavery.”
Bailey notes that while Iran was forced to the negotiating table because the sanctions regime effectively deprived it “of necessary funds (along with a falling oil price), ISIS, however, doesn’t even have to negotiate. It has had no trouble finding collaborators among the worshippers of MAMMON in the West, allowing [it] to pursue…bloody conquests.”
President Obama opposes putting American troops on the ground to fight ISIS and his (now former) Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told the Washington Post that he disagreed with Trump. According to Gen. Odierno, destroying ISIS’s oil resources will solve the problem only temporarily, “because we haven’t properly looked at the political and economic side of it.” He concluded, as Obama does, “In order to resolve that, you need countries of the Middle East and those surrounding the Middle East to be involved in the solution.” This is a very poor excuse.
Right now, neighboring countries and their banks collaborate with ISIS, helping its oil sales and laundering the money. However, destroying the oil production facilities under ISIS control and their oil tankers is likely to minimize the financial temptations to collaborate with ISIS.
Obama’s reluctance to harm the terrorists’ major financial resources helps strengthen ISIS fighting power on the ground and increase its global appeal through the Internet. Together with his very bad Iran deal, Obama will be leaving behind a very bloody legacy.
BEAR in mind what this investigative journalist noted in a (March 2015) interview with Inquisitr, and the excerpt reads as follows:
Basically, western leaders are playing a numbers game, and the Arabs/Muslims win hands down. Placating them, despite their barbarism, manifests in two directions. Firstly, there are more financial deals to be made with a billion plus people, as opposed to a paltry few million Jews. This is despite the fact that western collusion with the Arab/Muslim world has a direct hand in what they excel at best; the import/export of jihad through money laundering via narco-terror and various criminal enterprises. The main umbrella under which they operate is the Muslim Brotherhood; a Mafia-like syndicate of jihadi enterprises, which, at times, traverses with Hezbollah’s narco-terror networks F/B/O Iran.
The above is accomplished through a maze-like hydra of financial institutions throughout the west, as the dirty money wends its way into all corners of the world, wherever funds for jihad are required. Yes, “it be” true, there are many western leaders (political and others) who are accomplices, and HSBC is one such “slush” house….
ATOP all that, a real statesman would let history be his/her guide. Indeed, the historical facts are as clear as they are stark, that is, Islam’s march on Christianity and Judaism is as alive today as it was centuries ago. And never mind the lying mantra proffered by willful revisionists who opine: Islam is a religion of peace! In a (non-halal) pig’s eye.
MORE specifically, in 624, Mohammed led a bloody raid for booty and plunder against a Meccan caravan, slaughtering 70 Meccans. In the time period between 630 A.D. and the death of (war-lord and pedophile) Mohammed in 632 A.D., Muslims — on at least one purging by Mohammed — the bulk of western Arabia and southern Palestine was conquered through an estimate of a dozen separate invasions and barbaric conquests. Per their usual Orwellian constructs, said invasion were in large part deemed “Holy wars”. Its significance is manifest, in so far as it puts paid to the lie that the Crusades were the “The First Holy War,” feigning as if the Christians had invented the concept of a holy war. Nonsense.
CONSEQUENTIALLY, it was after Mohammed’s death in 632, the new Muslim caliph, Abu Bakr, catapulted Islam into almost 1,500 years of constant bloody conquest through imperialist methods, thus, subjugating and submitting others to Islam. Truth dare be told, said war-lording continues apace to this very day. Go figure.
THE only diff being, at this historical juncture Allah’s soldiers enjoy the actual protection – “protectzia”, as is said in Israel – and shielding under the umbrella of the leader of the (heretofore) free world!
