A non-war war against the non-Islamic Islamic State 5

The Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) is not Islamic. So President Obama said in the quaint little speech he made last night.

But is it humanitarian?

Nancy Pelosi believes that Hamas, the fanatical mass-murdering terrorist organization (and elected government of Gaza), is a humanitarian organization.

How does she know? Because the Qataris – who sponsor Hamas – told her so.

Well, the same could be said of the Islamic State.

If you can believe the Qataris and Nancy Pelosi, you can believe that this citizen and fierce warrior of the Islamic State, standing in front of the heads he has hacked off and impaled, and indicating self-righteously with a raised finger that he did it to please Allah, is also a humanitarian …



… because – yes – the Islamic State is humanitarian. And socialist. A Democrat’s dream of a welfare state.

Here, from Gateway Pundit,  is the evidence; more than enough to convince Nancy Pelosi:

ISIS released their ten points of redistribution this week.

It is much like a list you’d see at any random Socialist meeting.

Ten Facts from the ‪#‎Islamic_State‬ that everyone should know.

1. We don’t pay rent here. Houses are given for free.
2. We pay neither electric nor water bills.
3. We are given monthly grocery supplies. Spagetti, pasta, can foods, rice, eggs and etc.
4. Monthly allowance are given not only to husband and wife (wives) but also for each child.
5. Medical check up and medication are free – The Islamic State pays on behalf of you.
6. You can still survive even if you don’t speak Arabic. You can find almost every race and nationality here.
7. For every newly married couples are given 700usd as a gift. (Only for Mujahid and I’m not sure if it’s still available now).
8. You don’t have to pay tax (If you’re a Muslim).
9. No one is conducting business during prayer time. You can see people left their shops opened and pray either in the masjid or near by their shops.
10. The number of mix-marriages and mixed-race children are so high. It’s beautiful to witness brotherhood with no racism.

Diary Of A Muhajirah

Roger L. Simon at PJ Media comments aptly on Obama’s “strategy” for not defeating IS:

Our hapless chief executive must be suffering from a cognitive disorder the size of Alpha Centauri. The poor guy grew up on the anti-imperialist mouthings of lefty poet Frank Marshall Davis, schoolboy revolutionary Bill Ayers and later anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, not to mention the well-known anti-American excrescences of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and now he has to go to war — as an imperialist — against the very Third World people he was told again and again we colonized and destroyed. His head must be about to explode.

No wonder he insisted in his Wednesday night speech that the Islamic State is not Islamic — what is it? Hindu?  Zoroastrian? A lost tribe of Hasidic Jews? — and that we are fighting an amorphous “terrorist group” (the Irish Republican Army?  Basque separatists perhaps?), not the jihadism whose violent ideology has so obviously metastasized across several continents under many guises during his administration with no end remotely in sight. He dare not name our enemy, although it’s almost impossible to imagine how we could win without doing so. He cannot say anything that’s true because he doesn’t know what is true or, perhaps more likely, is terrified to know and then have to admit it. If he did, everything would unravel, not just the jejune Marxism of Frank Marshall Davis. Everything.

But he does know what his poll numbers are and they aren’t good. So we are where we are. Half way in and half way out. … The USA is going to war with a nowhere man who no longer knows what he stands for — and who originally stood for very little more than widely discredited and tired left-wing drivel masquerading as hope and change. Now even that’s gone, a distant memory. …

Two days ago, according to reports, Obama was still reluctant to do anything about the beheaders of ISIS, but was finally driven to act because of those disastrous polls and broad hints from some of his party members that he was leading them to electoral disaster. Others in that same party were mortified he might actually go to war, so, being Barack Obama, in other words a nowhere man, he split the difference — no boots on the ground (except for a piddling 475 advisers — let’s hope there won’t be any “mission creep”).

Welcome to nowhere war waged by a nowhere man.

Remember, all ye Democrats, that what IS is, depends on what “is” is.

    Jillian, Greetings! It has been while since I was here, but I have enjoyed catching up on the posts. Sam Harris wrote a very careful and nuanced article on his blog recently and if you have not seen it, I think it is worth a reading. You can find it here: http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/sleepwalking-toward-armageddon
    All the best,

    • Hi Kerry. Glad to have you back with us.

      Thanks for the link. Yes, there’s much in the article that is very good.

      But he writes of “self-transcendence” and “spirituality”. He has recently published a book called “Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion”. You can find my review of it under Pages near the top of our margin. I tried to find all the merit in it that I could – and I still couldn’t find much. I was disappointed, because I have admired Harris’s writings, his recorded lectures, and his arguments in debates on religion. Then he produces this book. To know why I found it not just bad but evil, please read my review.

    Over the last 3 days, I have seen 3 different man-on-the-street interview/survey spots on TV. Each dealt with 9/11 and two included ISIS. The target audience was 18 to late 20s . Two events happened on college campuses and one was on the sidewalks of New York City.

    Can only guessitmate, given the narrator’s commentary, that somewhere near 100 people were interviewed in all three events. Combining the stated outcomes for all three surveys…about 5% actually understood what 9/11 was about; 10% heard of it (Oh, yeah…9/11 – daze) ; and, extrapolating for only two surveys, less than 10% ever heard of ISIS. 100% knew at least one (most knew many more) name of a hollywood starlet that had nude photos hacked last week.

    Compulsory education must be crushed. Government must get out of the business and turn it all over to private enterprise….no government certification. Codicil…basic education must be comprehensive in Founding and ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION and principles of Free-Market Capitalism as advanced by the Austrian School.

    Hopefully it isn’t too late. In the mean time…arrest the SOB OBAMA and have him tried for providing giving and and comfort to the enemy!!!

      These surveys make my point exactly – millions of stupid people are the left – and Islam’s – biggest weapons. They can be manipulated to believe anything, from “Obama’s a great President” to “Islam is the religion of peace”.
      Yes, it needs to be completely replaced, but will or can anyone dismantle something as huge as our leviathan system of socialist bureaucracy, welfare entitlements, cronyism, and government run propaganda passing for education and media?

  • liz

    Roger Simon has it so right here – Obama is a “nowhere man” who’s only principles are “widely discredited and tired left wing drivel”.
    The sad thing is, millions of our own citizens are so abjectly stupid that this drivel is enough to captivate them. These are the same people who are mind-bogglingly stupid enough to think that the barbaric moron in the picture with his human trophy heads is a hero, and that Islam is awesome.
    They, like the idiot “muhajira” who wrote the description of Islamic Utopia, apparently think free stuff falls directly out of heaven on the true believers in Allah, and/or Obama voters, whichever the case may be.
    Since it requires no brains to be a parasite loser, neither leftism or Islam will ever lack for dutiful followers lining up for free stuff.
