In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL instead of their former name ISIS or current name Islamic State. Have you ever wondered about that? We have.
In a story on Red Flag:
What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant? Israel.
ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective its all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.
The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!
When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.
Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one. Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His “plan”to buy ISIS as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.
Here was President Obama earlier this year speaking about “ISIL”:
Clueless or planned? We gave ISIS funds. We gave ISIS our equipment – we abandoned our tanks and guns (so much for taxpayers and tax dollars). We gave ISIS time. What more could we have done to NOT support them? It seems we have done so much to support them so far, even when President Obama wanted to look like we weren’t supporting them. Nice work, Mr. President.
By the way, when you talk about the “willingness to make hard decisions”…..how about you, Mr. President? Are you willing to stop notifying ISIS in advance of our bombings? or is that part of the strategy too?
And when you said “United States will do our part”……yes we have, it’s just unfortunate it’s not in support of our ally – Israel.
“Intensive diplomacy” you say….. oh, that’s right, Mr. President. Let’s just resolve our issues “peacefully”….shake hands….play nice….since that’s working so well. NOT.
“Fully informed” – Really?! Your most transparent administration has been the most “closed” beginning with your sealed college transcripts. If we can’t trust you and your college records, what makes you think we will trust you when it comes to supporting our ally, Israel? or even winning the fight against radical Islamic terrorism? You took an oath, Mr. President. We thought we could trust you with your hand on the bible too, but we know that’s not working out so well, is it?
