The administration’s ISIS problem exposed
Interesting points today from some who has “been there and suffered that”.
The Yazidi woman, Nadia Murad, who escaped captivity in 2014, testified before the Senate Homeland Security committee about the horrors of living under ISIS, CNN reported.
“The USA must act. We must terminate Daesh [Islamic State] and all such terror,” she said through a translator. “Daesh will not give up their weapons unless we force them to give up their weapons.”
Murad spoke out about the Orlando massacre that left 49 people dead, offering condolences to the victims and saying she was not surprised by the terror attack. “I knew if ISIS were not stopped, they would deliver their crimes everywhere,” she said.
She also confronted the Obama administration on its inability to act in protecting Americans as the president pays lip service to fighting ISIS but does nothing serious to eradicate the radicals.
“If a country as strong as your country cannot protect its citizens in Orlando, or in Belgium or in France,” Murad asked, “how come a small minority like us can protect ourselves while we are in the heart of the land where the radicals are?”
But the USA isn’t going to act. It has a chief executive that can’t even bring himself to identify the problem or the enemy. And you have to admire her question. It’s to the point, isn’t it?
The reason we can’t – or won’t – “protect ourselves” is there is no will to do so among those charged with the duty to do so. And, after the latest massacre, they’re intent on removing everyone else’s ability to do so by railing against guns, the NRA and whatever other ideological boogey man they can throw into the mix. It’s election time dear – you life, the lives of Americans, the lives of anyone are not as important is realizing the Democrat’s election goals.
Oh, and this point was pretty telling too:
Calling on the Islamic community to act, Murad said “The Muslims must be the first ones to resist this.”
“We have not seen that Daesh have been labeled as an infidel group within Islam by any Muslim country,” said the woman who had six of her brothers and her mother executed by ISIS in one day, CNN reported.
Well think about that … why haven’t we seen so-called “moderate Islamic countries” label or declare ISIS an “infidel group”. Well it’s fairly simple I would assume – they’re more afraid of ISIS than the US and the US has likely brought no pressure to bear on them to do so. Either that or they have no problem with what “Daesh” is doing.
This woman came through hell to sit in front of the US Senate and tell her story. Her confusion about why a nation as “strong” as this one does nothing and can’t even manage to identify the enemy or utter its name are understandable.
Weakness. Fear. Lack of leadership.
