On February 03, 2015 America and the World was shocked to learn that the Islamic State had put to death by fire the pilot of a Jordanian military jet, Mu’ath al-Kassasbeh. That act, in its self, spoke volumes to the word but as loud as that statement was it was dwarfed by the statement King Abdullah made. King Abdullah was here in America at the time the news broke that ISIS had carried through on their threat to kill Jordan’s pilot. We have since leaned that the actual execution might have been carried out in early January. King Abdullah left America early holding his comments until he returned to his country to share his grief and anger with the people of Jordan. Some leaders realize the importance of personal presence during challenging times.
Once back in Jordan, King Abdullah wasted no time in releasing his feelings, anger and comments regarding the horrendous vile execution by the savage Islamic terrorist group ISIS. King Abdullah assured his people that this act would not go unanswered. As quoted he said “The blood of martyr Mu’ath al-Kassasbeh will not be in vain and the response of Jordan and its army after what happened to our dear son will be severe.” It is told that he went on to quote from a movie Clint Eastwood stared in “Unforgiven” and I believe even mentioned Eastwoods name. The quote “Any man I see out there, I’m gonna kill him. Any son-of-a-bitch takes a shot at me, I’m not only going to kill him, I’m going to kill his wife and all his friends and burn his damn house down.” If this was a word for word quote I don’t know, but to say the King is angry is an understatement. King Abdullah ordered the hanging of two ISIS prisoners Rishawi and Karboli. It is important to note that both of these terrorists had been found guilty of acts of terrorism and was already on death row. King Abdullah did not randomly pick two ISIS terrorists. Since this fast, directed and determined response King Abdullah has responded with several sorties killing many ISIS terrorist and ISIS leaders. As a result of the ISIS execution several countries has vowed to step up their support of Jordan. All countries that is except America. The Obama statements still run the route of let’s not cast blame on Islam. Several statements follow; “Whatever ideology they’re operating off of… it’s bankrupt” and “I think we will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of a global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated. Based on these statements and others I’m sure that ISIS is right now drafting up their surrender proposals. This statement that Obama said at the National Prayer Breakfast is the one that worries me the most, during his speech to politicians, dignitaries and faith leaders he said, “Remember, during the Crusades and Inquisition people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” Did these happen? Yes, they did, but he did not say why we had the Crusades; the Crusades was in response to hundreds of years of Muslim oppression in the region asserting their pressure to force everyone to accept Islam. Unlike Mohammed, Christ did not advocate the ruthless killing of anyone who disagreed with Him or His message. Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:14 says; “But whoever does not receive you, neither listens to your words, when you depart from the house or from the village, shake the dust from your feet.” In Luke 9:5 we are told; If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony agains them. I don’t see anywhere in those two verses where Jesus directs his followers to kill, behead or burn in a cage those people. Did Obama have a slip of the tongue our a well planned comment?
There are several countries that have in the past been part of the coalition against terrorism but have now pulled back. Why? Because of America’s lack of commitment. UAE, the most recent saying they fear for the safety of there pilots not being rescued. We are key players in the recovery of downed pilots. Our lack of commitment to provide and use the necessary equipment and troops to man the aircraft put boots on the ground to bring them out leaves many countries questioning why they want to subject their pilots to be a part of the coalition.
Our president has taken the position of a Conscientious objector on the part of America. He has consistently refused to label any terrorist actions as terror, terrorist or Islamic terrorist or as Muslims. He has refused to do anything or label any actions anything that might go against the religion of Islam. Remember his speech at the prayer breakfast. He has been overly protective of Islam and Muslims in general. I heard this statement on a local news show I can’t remember who said it but this statement is frighteningly true “America can no longer trust its friends and our enemies no longer fear us” While Obama is coddling Muslims and their religion we are loosing America one baby step at a time.
