We were treated on Monday to yet another spectacle by The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer as he addressed journalists at the G20 Summit at Antalya, Turkey. An explicitly irritated president made it clear he loathed their pressing him on how he could have underestimated ISIS.
The day before 350 people were wounded and at least 132 were slaughtered, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America, “I don't think they're gaining strength," he said of ISIS. "What is true, from the start our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq and in Syria they'll come in, they'll leave. But you don't see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain."
On attacks in the name of Islam, he astonishingly went on to say in his G20 presser, “To the degree that anyone would equate the terrible actions that took place in Paris with the views of Islam; those kinds of stereotypes are counterproductive. They’re wrong. They will lead, I think, to greater recruitment into terrorist organizations over time if this becomes somehow defined as a Muslim problem as opposed to a terrorist problem…I also think the Muslim community has to think about how we make sure that children are not being infected with this twisted notion that somehow they can kill innocent people and that that is justified by religion. And to some degree, that is something that has to come from within the Muslim community itself.”
Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has repeatedly warned that ISIS is coming after America. In an audio address last year, he declared: “Our last message is to the Americans: Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day. So watch, for we are with you, watching.” And following the Paris attacks, the Islamic State released a new video in which it warned, “By God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington.”
As we cast our eyes upon the chilling photographs of corpses littering the streets of Paris, we must remember that for fourteen centuries these hyenas and jackals have had their venomous dogma beaten, molested and inbred into them. France has some of the strictest gun control laws on the globe and when these animals are offloaded on a cowed and unarmed populace the bloodlust resembles a rabid dog unleashed against a flock of sheep.
France is in a state of war after Friday’s massacre. Police have raided homes of suspected Islamists across France in the aftermath of the Paris attacks and are questioning people who are part of the “radical jihadist movement” who advocate hate of the French Republic.
Rabid dogs are fit only to be killed and killed to the last howling, snarling, foam-dripping pup. That is why allowing 10,000 refugees from the wartorn Middle East would have catastrophic consequences and is gambling with the lives of innocent Americans.
FBI Director James Comey acknowledged an estimated 900 active investigations are pending against suspected Islamic State-inspired operatives and other homegrown violent extremists across the country. The intelligence community had repeatedly said there is no way those refugees can be vetted.
Add to that the fact that violent extremists meet in the open on Facebook or Twitter. Then they “go dark” using technology called encryption to encode their messages making prevention of future attacks nearly impossible. Comey has warned that ISIS’s recruiting has significantly spiked in the past 18 months. I dare say the spike may have something to do with a president who refuses to do anything about ISIS and whose term in office is coming to an end.
Young people who feel disenfranchised are susceptible to their message. Comey said, “So a message in some way starts buzzing in their pocket: ‘Here is meaning, here is a centering for your life, participate in this glorious endeavor.’ Twitter works. It’s a great way to crowdsource terrorism because it reduces barriers to access because now all of a sudden I have a terrorist on my belt 24 hours a day, buzzing to me and I can buzz back. It connects me in a way that was impossible two years ago with Al Qaeda.”
“Come here and kill or if you can’t come, kill where you are.” That is the two-pronged siren song that goes out through social media.
