President Obama Scrambles To Restore Confidence In Handling of Islamic State Terrorism



President Obama insists his plan to defeat Islamic State terrorists is working, he’s warning Americans that fear would only help the terrorists.

“We will not give in to fear, or start turning on each other, or treating some people differently because of religion or race or background,” he said during a press conference in Malaysia. “That wouldn’t just be a betrayal of our values, it would also feed ISIL’s propaganda.”

Obama spent all of last week traveling through Asian countries to promote his Trans-Pacific Trade deal and a campaign against climate change, but was repeatedly forced to discuss his strategy against ISIS in multiple press conferences with world leaders.

His first press conference in response to the attacks in Paris was widely considered to be disastrous, as he appeared annoyed by reporters who repeatedly questioned his dispassionate demeanor.

On Synday, however, Obama emphasized the strength of the international coalition committed to fighting ISIS and tried to restore confidence in his ability to destroy the network through a carefully executed air campaign. He argued that ISIS was not winning, although it is spreading fear across the world.

“That’s the very nature of terrorism –they can’t beat us on the battlefield, so they try to terrorize us into being afraid, into changing our patterns of behavior, into panicking, into abandoning our allies and partners, into retreating from the world,” he said. “And as President, I will not let that happen.”

But Obama’s rhetoric only goes so far.

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 83 percent of registered voters believe a large-scale terrorist attack in the United States is likely. Sixty percent back more ground forces against Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Fifty-seven percent in the poll signaled disapproval of Obama’s response to ISIS.

During his press conference, Obama repeatedly urged Americans not to be afraid of the terrorist threat posed by ISIS, calling them “a bunch of killers with good social media.”

“We cannot respond from fear,” he said. “And the American people, in the past, have confronted some very real, enormous threats, and we beat them. We vanquished them. This will be no different.”

Obama recalled the attacks on 9/11, pointing out that America overcame the terror that terrorists tried to inflict on the country, even as he suggested that political leaders made mistakes in response to the attacks.

“I think we made some bad decisions subsequent to that attack in part based on fear, and that’s why we have to be cautious about it,” he warned. “We have to think things through.”

The president has come under fire for refusing to escalate military operations in response to the the terrorist attacks in Paris, choosing instead the highlight the plight of Syria refugees.

Obama is expected to meet with French President Francois Hollande at the White House on Tuesday to discuss the military campaign against ISIS.

Obama Changes Course – Now Calls ISIS A ‘Threat To Us All’ – Last Week They Were ‘Contained’

Published on Nov 24, 2015

Video Transcript:

President Obama on Tuesday, condemned ISIS and its “murderous ideology.” 

Obama: This barbaric terrorist group, ISIL, or Daesh, and its murderous ideology, pose a serious threat to all of us. It cannot be tolerated. It must be destroyed, and we must do it together. It is a scourge that threatens all of us. 

His condemnation comes after he downplayed ISIS as “contained” and only “killers with social media.” 

Obama: Well I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true is that, from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq.

Sadly, it turns out that if you’re willing to die you can kill a lot of people. They’re a bunch of killers with good social media. 

After he labeled ISIS a threat, Obama shared what he believes will rebuke ISIS.

Obama: Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference. What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.

US-backed forces have right to self-defense, but others do not – State Department


Turkey and the rebels it backs northern Syria had the right to defend themselves against Russian airstrikes, State Department spokesman told reporters. The rebels reportedly killed one Russian pilot who ejected from the jet hit by a Turkish missile.

During the regular press briefing, Mark Toner said the Syrian government did not have such a right, though.

When asked by RT’s Gayane Chichakyan if the State Department considered the rebels who reportedly killed the Russian pilots “moderates,” Toner replied:

“We’ve seen conflicting reports. One pilot may not have been killed. If these ‘Turkomen’ were actually being attacked by Russian strikes, they have every right to defend themselves.”

AP’s diplomatic correspondent Matt Lee asked a follow up question.

“Doesn’t that apply to everyone, not just rebels backed by West? Including the Assad regime?”

What the Assad regime was doing “is not self-defense,” Toner countered, arguing that the government in Damascus responded to “peaceful protests with four years of terror.”

When other reporters questioned his description of the Syrian conflict as a “peaceful protest,” Toner brushed them off by saying that “everyone in this room knows what happened.”

Toner repeated several times that Washington stood by Turkey as a NATO ally, and its “right to protect its sovereign airspace”, while refusing to comment on the specifics of this morning’s downing of a Russian jet because, by his admission, he had no details yet.

The State Department spokesman confirmed the US was supplying TOW missiles – seen in a video purportedly showing the rebels destroying a Russian search-and-rescue helicopter – to the “moderates” in northern Syria who were supposedly battling Islamic State forces.

Another revelation at the briefing on Tuesday was that the “de-confliction” mechanism established between the US and Russia last month to avoid clashes in the skies over Syria did not apply to any other members of the US-led coalition.

Asked by Chichakyan if the State Department would condemn the rebels’ use of US-supplied missiles against a Russian rescue helicopter, Toner replied that Syria was a “very complex environment.”

Repeating that Russia was supporting Assad and directing airstrikes against the “moderate Syrian opposition,” he said that this only increased the urgency to speed up the political transition, so that everyone could focus on fighting Islamic State.

Russia deploys missile cruiser off Syria coast, ordered to destroy any target posing danger


Moscow plans to suspend military cooperation with Ankara after the downing of a Russian bomber by Turkish air forces, Russian General Staff representatives said on Tuesday. Further measures to beef up Russian air base security in Syria will also be taken.

Three steps as announced by top brass:

  1. Each and every strike groups’ operation is to be carried out under the guise of fighter jets
  2. Air defense to be boosted with the deployment of Moskva guided missile cruiser off Latakia coast with an aim to destroy any target that may pose danger
  3. Military contacts with Turkey to be suspended

Sergey Rudskoy, a top official with the Russian General Staff, condemned the attack on the Russian bomber in Syrian airspace by a Turkish fighter jet as “a severe violation of international law”. He stressed that the Su-24 was downed over the Syrian territory. The crash site was four kilometers away from the Turkish border, he said.


Rudskoy said the Russian warplane did not violate Turkish airspace. Additionally, according to the Hmeymim airfield radar, it was the Turkish fighter jet that actually entered Syrian airspace as it attacked the Russian bomber.

The Turkish fighter jet made no attempts to contact Russian pilots before attacking the bomber, Rudskoy added.

We assume the strike was carried out with a close range missile with an infra-red seeker,” Rudskoy said. “The Turkish jet made no attempts to communicate or establish visual contact with our crew that our equipment would have registered. The Su-24 was hit by a missile over Syria’s territory.”


Russia now plans to implement new measures aimed at strengthening the security of the country’s air base in Syria and in particular to bolster air defense.

Russian guided missile cruiser Moskva, equipped with the ‘Fort’ air defense system, similar to the S-300, will be deployed off Latakia province’s coast.

We warn that every target posing a potential threat will be destroyed,” lieutenant general Sergey Rudskoy said during the briefing.

The Moskva (‘Moscow’) missile cruise is a flagship vessel of the Russian Black Sea fleet and is one of the fleet’s two biggest ships. The cruiser was stationed in Sevastopol but left in summer 2015 after being deployed to the Mediterranean Sea where it joined Russia’s standing naval force in the Mediterranean.

Since September 30, the Moskva cruiser acts as a covering force for the Russian air forces in Syria while deployed in the eastern Mediterranean.

All military contacts with Turkey will be suspended,” Rudskoy added.


Turkey claims that it downed the Russian bomber in Turkish airspace after the plane was given 10 warnings in the space of five minutes as it approached the country’s territory.

“Nobody should doubt that we made our best efforts to avoid this latest incident. But everyone should respect the right of Turkey to defend its borders,” Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.

“The data we have is very clear. There were two planes approaching our border, we warned them as they were getting too close,” another senior Turkish official told Reuters.

“Our findings show clearly that Turkish air space was violated multiple times. And they violated it knowingly.”

US President Barack Obama and his French counterpart Francois Hollande urged Russia and Turkey away from further escalation during a meeting in Washington, while NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg voiced the alliance’s support for Turkey.

A US military spokesman also said that the incident involves only Turkey and Russia and does not affect the US-led campaign in Syria, which will continue “as planned”.

A New Military Power Is Joining Russia and France To Fight Terrorists in Syria…GAME OVER!


Reports in Syria surfaced on Tuesday evening indicating that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) conducted strikes on a base belonging to the Iran terror proxy Hezbollah.

The base that was targeted was located in the mountainous Qalamoun border region between Lebanon and Syria, according to the reports cited by Walla.

Qalamoun has long been a key point for transferring weapons, both for rebels fighting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah fighting to prop up Assad.


Video: Obama-backed Syrian “moderates” scream “Allahu akbar” over body of downed Russian pilot


Further proof, Obama aligned with the jihad force. American faces no greater than the enemy in the White House.

In the past, America may not always have been loved, but we were respected. Now we are despised — the post-American world under Obama. Chaos.

“Video: U.S.-backed Syrian “moderates” scream “Allahu akbar” over body of downed Russian pilot,” November 24, 2015 (thanks to Robert Spencer):

This source says that the jihadis in the video are from the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army. You know, the “moderates.”

“Sick video emerges of Syrian rebels chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ over corpse of Russian pilot,” by Rebecca Perring, Express, November 24, 2015 (thanks to Darcy):

A SHOCKING video has emerged online which allegedly shows a Syrian rebel group as they gleefully chant “Allahu Akabar” [sic] over the corpse of the Russian pilot killed when Turkish warplanes shot down his plane.

Filmed by rebels in Syria’s Turkman Mountains, the horrifying video shows dozens of men as the discover the bloodied and bruised body of one of the pilots, dressed in Russian military fatigues.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 was downed by F16 Fighting Falcon jets belonging to Turkey, after it was warned 10 times in five minutes to leave Turkish airspace.

The sickening footage shows armed Syria-Turkmen rebel soldiers as they cheer and shout “Allahu Akbar” – “God is great” as the man’s lifeless body lies slumped on the ground.

It was said to be filmed by a rebel group operating in an area populated by Turkman – Syrian citizens, but ethnic Turks – and is the target of a current Syrian government offence, where President Bashar al-Assad’s troops are supported by Russian airstrikes.

At the time, two pilots managed to eject from the jet and were seen landing with the help of parachutes.

However the bodies of both pilots have now been recovered by Syrian rebels, who are fighting against al-Assad, according to reports….

ISIS terrorist Salah Abdeslam: Gay bars, weed and booze filled his pre-jihadi life

Published on Nov 24, 2015

BRUSSELS — Gay sex, video games, hashish and alcohol: these were the reported passions of Belgian terror suspect Salah Abdeslam, who is now the subject of an international manhunt. 

Details on Salah’s pre-jihadi life are emerging with the man’s older brother, Mohammed Abdeslam, telling the media that his siblings Salah and Ibrahim spent the majority of their days smoking hashish and playing video games.

It was only six months ago, their brother said, that the two stopped drinking and began praying — something the family did not believe indicated the brothers had been radicalized, but rather that they were attempting to straighten up their lives and pay a bit more heed to their religious obligations.

Brahim (Ibrahim) Abdeslam, 31, blew himself up inside a café in Paris on the night of November 13, 2015, but his brother Salah may have had second thoughts about his planned suicide attack.

UK newspaper The Sun reports that Salah recently called a friend in Belgium saying, “we went too far” and that he was now not only on the run from authorities but also from Islamic State militants, possibly for his failure to complete his suicide mission.

It’s also been revealed that Salah frequented gay bars in Brussels and was known for boozing, smoking hash and flirting with men. 

Although unconfirmed, some believe Salah is in hiding in Brussels. Police have released a picture of Salah wearing a wig and glasses when he rented a car that was used to transport terrorists and weapons to various sites in Paris on the night of November 13.

Salah’s family has urged him to turn himself in, saying it’s unclear whether Salah actually killed anyone. His older brother Mohammed said he would rather see Salah in jail than in a cemetery.

Mosques really aren’t that different from gay bars – no woman with many of the men down on their knees.

This would explain why he wasn’t stupid enough to blow himself up.

He wasn’t Muslim enough.

Great job on the GLBTISIS flag.

Qur’an strictly prohibits homosexuality[14] through the story of Lot (see Qur’an verses 7:80-84, 11:69-83, 29:28-35; which is also rendered in the Biblical Book of Genesis), in Al-Nisa, Al-Araf and possibly verses in other surahs.

“We also sent Lot: He said to his people: “Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.”

— Quran 7:80–81

In another verse, it has been also pointed out,

Do you approach males among the worlds And leave what your Lord has created for you as mates? But you are a people transgressing.
