Over the weekend, the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, 75th Ranger Regiment and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment carried out an operation in Syria to assassinate the leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and were very successful, getting the terrorist s.o.b. to detonate a suicide vest inside a dead-end tunnel, blowing himself up, alongside three of his children because that’s how much of a psychopath the guy was.
And while this is undoubtedly a great moment for the United States and for President Donald Trump, Leftists and people in the media were quick to either refuse praising Trump for this successful raid (odd, considering they praised Obama to the hills as though he personally went to bin Laden’s hideout and shot him in the head after delivering a one-liner like in the movies) or even try to downplay the killing of Baghdadi as not being such a big deal.
Leftist “journalists” like John Harwood tried to downplay the killing of Baghdadi by saying: “… in the American psyche, Baghdadi was to bin Laden as an ant is to an elephant.” Bin Laden was the leader of al-Qaeda and was known largely because of 9/11, the biggest terror attack in American soil. Just because Baghdadi never accomplished something quite to that scale (thank God), it doesn’t mean he was basically a nobody. The guy had killed thousands in the Middle East, ruining people’s lives by raping women, making children orphans and killed, captured and beheaded hundreds if not thousands of people.
But this insensitive and narcissistic idiot wasn’t alone in trying to downplay the death of Baghdadi. The Washington Post released an article with the title: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”
Calling Baghdadi an “austere religious scholar” is like calling Hitler an “austere Darwinian fanatic” or Stalin an “austere fan of food-sharing methods.” The guy was the literal leader of ISIS, a terrorist organization that has killed thousands of people, and he gets the treatment of a Harvard scholar by the WaPo. Unbelievable.
Then there was soon-to-be-arrested former Obama National Security director James Clapper downplaying the killing of Baghdadi on CNN’s “State of the Union”:
“What is going to be interesting is the extent to which this negatively affects ISIS or does it galvanize ISIS, the remnants of ISIS, which still survive as an ideology and has franchises in other places besides Syria. ISIS is more than just Baghdadi, as important as he was. 14,000 to 18,000 fighters yet remaining and the franchise are branches in other places – notably, Afghanistan where of course we still have forces. ISIS did participate in losing leadership. So they decentralized and groomed people to assume the role. Now, I don’t know that they have anybody [who] would have the symbolic importance of Baghdadi but I don’t think we can say at this point that we can stop worrying about ISIS.”
Of course we can’t because the ideology of ISIS stems from radical Islam. As long as that is around, ISIS and other terrorist groups like it will remain. But killing Baghdadi, the founding leader of ISIS, is a pretty major deal (by the way, in doing research on Baghdadi, I came upon his Wikipedia page and they have him as the former leader of “ISIL”, which is the name given to ISIS by those who do not recognize Israel’s sovereignty, and they say that he was “in office” as leader of ISIS as though he was a civilized politician and not the piece of human excrement that he actually was).
And even though ISIS is still going to be around after Baghdadi, that doesn’t mean it will likely resurface as a powerful group like it once was (under a certain someone’s presidency). Newsweek, who also downplayed Baghdadi’s assassination, reported that while the group may have a new leader in a man called Abdullah Qardash, they also report that they are on their last legs, as while Qardash may have been hand-picked by Baghdadi to lead ISIS upon Baghdadi’s death, that decision was not made by the group as a whole and it may lead to infighting.
And even under the best case scenario for ISIS and the Left, where there is zero infighting and every ISIS officer accepts Qardash and follows him, ISIS has been considered to be reaching its end back in February of 2019, when CBS News reported that the group had lost a lot of ground, being reduced to a little more than a quarter of a square mile in Syria, and that “hundreds” of ISIS fighters and over a thousand civilian tagalongs (meaning families, servants and slaves) had fled the group. ISIS had also been driven out of Iraq in 2017.
So while ISIS is still around and is still a threat to people living near them (and let’s not forget there are also radical Islamic terrorists that are in other places like Europe who perform terrorists acts in the name of ISIS as a form of allegiance to them), they have been on the absolute cusp of defeat for a long time now, with zero signs for any sort of resurgence.
But Clapper wasn’t the only one who still thinks ISIS is still a major threat. Obama’s Joint Chiefs Vice-Chair James Winnefeld expressed concern over the way Baghdadi’s remains were treated, worrying that it would drive more Islamic violence and arguing that: “If you look back at the bin Laden raid, we treated his body with respect that is due under Islam.”
And oh boy do I have a lot to say to this.
First of all, Baghdadi’s remains should’ve been picked up and flushed down the nearest toilet, sort of giving him a burial at sea (not certain exactly how his body was treated). That is the LEAST the newest resident of Hell deserves.
Second of all, does this moron realize that further Islamic violence came after bin Laden’s death anyway? These terrorists couldn’t care less how “respectfully” bin Laden’s body was treated. They found out that American forces killed him and wanted vengeance for it. Similarly, the remaining ISIS terrorists and supporters will also want vengeance for it.
You see, what you have to realize is that these people are not civilized human beings. They are savage dogs who see us being killed by them as justice and us killing them as injustice. They believe they are prophetically-destined to rule the world through Sharia and any who interfere or dissent will be forced to either submit or perish. Their ideology has not evolved in the least since its inception in the 7th century, as evidenced by how much of the Muslim world still works (gays being set on fire or thrown off buildings, blacks being sold in open slave markets, women being sold off for sexual slavery, children being traded for livestock, etc.).
While not every single Muslim is a terrorist, groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hamas and others exist because of their radical interpretation of an already pretty radical ideology. Much of the Muslim world, such as Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, etc., live as though they are still in the 7th century, albeit with major technological advancements at their disposal.
The barbaric violence of the past is still commonplace in the Middle East because of this.
Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying violence is absent everywhere else apart from the Middle East and I’m not saying that Islam is the only source of violence. Chicago is a pretty violent place, as are many places in California and most Democrat-run cities. Violence is also present in Leftist Europe (a lot due to Muslim terrorists, but obviously, not all of it is due to them).
What I am saying is that there will always be violence with regards to Islam because violence is ENGRAINED in Islam. Wives and children being hit by their husbands/fathers is fairly commonplace and disobedience to the paternal figure in the family is grounds for violence up to even death in some cases.
Far from the “religion of peace”, Islam is little more than a death cult. Yes, there are moderates in it, as in any other religion, but most moderates tend to not entirely grasp the concepts and doctrines of Islam. Similar to how moderate “Christians” might defend gay marriage or even come out as gay themselves, they do not fully understand the teachings of Christ and merely interpret them to how they wish it would be. They use eisegesis, meaning putting into the Word of God what is not there, rather than exegesis, meaning taking what is in the Word of God out for learning and teaching. They put into the Word of God the words of Man, which utterly distorts the teaching of the Bible.
And while one might wish to defend Islam to some extent and point out that we call these radical Islamic terrorists “radical”, we do have to remember that the founder of Islam, the “prophet” Muhammad, would raid, capture and kill people with his armies of followers, ordering the murder of dissenters and criticizers of Islam (kind of like how it is now) and telling his soldiers that it was okay to rape the women that they captured, even if they were married, to be sold or traded, or even were prepubescent.
The Quran stands in stark contrast to the Jewish Scriptures and the Bible’s New Testament books. Muhammad taught that it was okay to use violence against dissenters and that his mission was to drive out from the Arabian Peninsula all Jews and Christians.
Violence from ISIS sympathizers and fighters will continue, not because they will grow in strength and numbers (at least, they won’t under Trump), but because that’s simply the nature of the ideology they espouse. They believe they are destined to set up a global caliphate and that violence and aggression will be the best course of action for accomplishing that.
It doesn’t matter if we treat Baghdadi’s body with respect like we did bin Laden or if we put his remains into a cannon and launch it into what remains of ISIS territory – these people will always hate us and wish to cause us harm.
But returning to the overall story of Trump’s accomplishment over Baghdadi and ISIS, I love the fact that these fools would go to such lengths to either try and downplay the significance of this or would outright defend Baghdadi and give him any sort of reverence like the Washington Post did. It goes to show just whose side these people are on and is a great campaign topic for Donald Trump. Of course, there are a lot more examples than the ones I shared with you, but I think you get the idea about who these people are and with whom they choose to side.
“He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”
