Journalist James Foley, beheaded by ISIS, was a useful idiot

No doubt you’ve all seen this image of American journalist James Foley who was beheaded by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) jihadists on August 19, 2014.

James Wright Foley was a freelance photojournalist covering the Syrian Civil War for Agence France-Presse and GlobalPost when he was abducted on November 22, 2012 in northwestern Syria.

The Islamic State (IS), an al-Qaida spinoff that’s better known as ISIS or ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), demanded a $132 million ransom from Foley’s family, his employer GlobalPost, and the U.S. government for his release. GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni stated that the company spent millions on efforts to bring Foley home, including hiring an international security firm that located Foley’s whereabouts in September 2013.

In July 2014, Obama authorized a major rescue operation involving special ops from multiple branches of the U.S. military, including the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and drones. But when U.S. Delta Force commandos landed in the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa where they believed Foley to be located, they were met with gunfire. IS suffered casualties, but the American forces suffered only a single minor injury. Foley and the other hostages were not located. The operation was only revealed after Foley’s death — the first confirmed case of U.S. troops on the ground within Syria during the Syrian Civil War.

On August 12, 2014, Foley’s parents received an email from his captors taking issue with the U.S. government for refusing to pay ransom and to negotiate a prisoner exchange as Obama had done in the case of U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, without informing and consulting Congress, thereby violating Section 1035 of the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act). The email said the IS would avenge the U.S. bombings against ISIS in Iraq, beginning with the execution of Foley.

Foley thus became the first confirmed U. S. citizen to be killed by the Islamic State.

Sadly, James Foley was also a useful idiot.

The term “useful idiot” is a descriptive term coined by V.I. Lenin. From Wikipedia:

The term [“useful idiot”] has been used in a similar sense as fellow travellers and other Communism or Soviet Union sympathizers in Western countries during the Cold War. The implication was that, although the people in question naïvely thought of themselves as standing for a benign socialist ideological cause, and as valued allies of the Soviet Union, they were actually held in contempt and were being cynically used by the Communist Party of Soviet Union for subversive activities in their native Western countries. The use of the term in political discourse has since been extended to other propagandists, especially those who are seen to unwittingly support a malignant cause which they naïvely believe to be a force for good.

Daniel Greenfield writes for Frontpage Magazine, Aug. 19, 2014, that Foley was one of a new breed of activist journalists who didn’t so much report on a story as promoted an agenda. And the agenda was obvious from his Twitter feed.

Here’s a sample of Foley’s tweets and retweets:

1. Foley was a left-winger who saw conservatives as “right-wing extremists” as dangerous as al-Qaeda:

2. Foley was anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian:

Foley4aNote: The Iron Dome is Israel’s very effective anti-missile shield.

Foley4bFoley5Note: Palestinians are committed to the destruction and elimination of the state of Israel. Article 7 of Hamas’ Charter says: “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees.”

3. Foley saw Islamic jihadists as righteous, warm and fuzzy:

Foley2Note: The Al Nusra Front was an al-Qaeda group that is now part of IS/ISIS.

FoleyFoley3

Though a Catholic, James Foley had no empathy for the Christians who are driven from their homes, tortured and killed by jihadists in Syria and Iraq. He cheered on the jihadists fighting to ethnically “cleanse” Christians from Aleppo, Syria’s largest city. It is reported that jihadists have even crucified Christians (see pic below).

christians-crucified-in-syria

Instead, Foley was a Muslim sympathizer who went to Syria to support the Sunni Islamist “rebels” against the Syrian government. Like the Obama administration, Foley was an advocate of the “rebels”; his Twitter feed was full of urgings to arm the jihadists.

For certain, James Foley didn’t deserve to be killed, especially in such a brutal barbaric fashion as being beheaded. His death, however, should be an object lesson to other useful idiots.

Useful idiots being the idiots they are, I doubt they will recognize or heed the object lesson.

CALLS TO CONGRESS 499 TO 1 AGAINST SYRIA WAR

The people revolt: Americans tell 22 lawmakers ‘no’ to military action

By Garth Kant and Chelsea Schilling

Americans are slamming at least 22 members of Congress with thousands of phone calls and emails, urging lawmakers not to approve a military strike on Syria  by a margin of as much as 499 to 1.

Catholic priest beheaded by the "noble freedom fighters".

Catholic priest beheaded by the American armed “moderate rebels”.

A national debate is raging on Twitter. Tweets and statements from members of Congress  both Democrat and Republican  show tremendously strong opposition to President Obama’s call for an air strike on Syria:

Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., tweeted, “Calls and emails from my constituents is 100 to 1 AGAINST getting involved in Syria. The American people are speaking.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said 99 percent of the calls his office oppose an attack.

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., said, “Constituents who have contacted my office by phone or mail oppose action in Syria 523-4 so far.”

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., tweeted, “My phones are blowing up, and an overwhelming amount of constituents oppose U.S. military intervention in Syria.”

Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., tweeted, “Syria constituent calls 489-2 against.”

Rep. Shelley Capito, R-W.V., said of “about 1,000 calls to my office, maybe 5 are for.”

Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., said calls and emails to his offices are 600 to 9 against striking Syria.

Contact Congress and let your lawmakers know how you feel about authorizing President Obama to strike Syria.

Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Ark., tweeted, “I received 225 emails via http://www.griffin.house.gov website over the weekend regarding Syria, and out of the 225 only 3 support U.S. military action against Syria.”

Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, said he is getting swamped with phone calls and on-the-street comments from constituents telling him to oppose a strike on Syria.

Rep. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said, “I’m told the phone calls are 9 out of 10 against a strike in Syria, from my constituents in Kentucky.”

Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Texas: “I have received hundreds of calls and letters from constituents expressing strong opposition.”

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., tweeted, “My office has been inundated with constituent phone calls and emails about Syria. Virtually unanimous opposition to military intervention.”

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, tweeted, “So far about 500 emails regarding Syria. 499 say NO and 1 say YES go to war” and “Hundreds of calls to our Provo and Washington, D.C., office. So far not a single call in favor of bombing Syria.”

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., tweeted, “The phones in my office are ringing off the hook and mail is flowing in. Almost all of the people are opposed to intervention in Syria.”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, tells WND his office is hearing the same overwhelming opposition to intervention.

Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., said, “I don’t know a member of Congress whose e-mails and phone calls are in favor of [bombing Syria.]”

Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla.said 96 percent of his emails and phone calls are from constituents who want to express their opposition to military action. He said, “Overwhelmingly, we are hearing pushback from our citizens against military intervention in Syria.”

Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.,  said he’s heard no support from his constituents for striking Syria: “I have not had a single person, not a single person, in over 92 Facebook posts just a little while ago in a question we posed, having a single constituent or a South Carolinian saying let’s go to war in Syria.”

Sen. Angus King, I-Mainesaid “a very high percentage” of the constituents contacting his office have been against U.S. involvement in Syria. He estimated that 90 percent of more than 1,000 calls and emails from Americans have been urging him not to support intervention.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.said, “I can tell you that in my office, the phones are bopping off the hook there. And almost unanimously people are opposed to what the president is talking about.”

Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., told the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing he and his constituents say “not just no, but heck no!” to Syria intervention.

Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., tweeted, “I’ve been hearing a lot from members of our armed forces. The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against Syria.”

Satan, from the recent TV special, The Bible

Meanwhile, U.S. men and women in the military are taking to social media to anonymously demand that the Obama administration refrain from sending them to fight Syria.

Uniformed military members posted photos of themselves on Facebook with paper messages covering their faces, declaring:

  • “I didn’t join the Marine Corps to fight for al-Qaida in a Syrian civil war.”
  • “I didn’t sign up to kill the poor for the rich. No war in Syria!”
  • “Obama, I will not deploy to fight for your al-Qaida rebels in Syria. WAKE UP, PEOPLE!”
  • “I didn’t join the Navy to fight for al-Qaida in a Syrian civil war.”

WND’s own unscientific poll now shows Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to military action in Syria by a 78 to 1 ratio.

We are not alone 

Let’s not forget Irish MP Clare Daly, who ripped her fellow politicians for sucking up to the Obamas and allowing plane load after plane load of weapons to be sent thru Ireland to be given secretly to the jihadists in Syria.

Not in our names!

SYRIA: U.S.-BACKED REBELS BEHIND ATTACKS ON ISRAEL

Jewish state fires back with missiles targeting Damascus regime

by AARON KLEIN

TEL AVIV – It was the Syrian opposition and not the Syrian government behind the firing Sunday and yesterday at the Israeli border, a top Syrian official claimed to WND.

The Syrian official accused the jihadist opposition of attempting to draw Israel into the conflict to aid the rebels by targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Why would we fire at Israel?” asked the official, speaking on condition his name be withheld. “We have no interest in getting Israel to attack the Syrian military.”

The rebels are backed by the U.S. and international community.

The border incidents began Saturday, when a round of gunfire coming from the Syrian side hit an Israeli Defense Forces jeep on routine patrol in the northern Golan Heights. Another round was fired from Syria targeted the same area in Israel today.

The gunfire came from a region on the Syrian side of the border where rebels have been attempting to seize control of a border town these last few days.

Israel Sunday responded with a missile attack that destroyed a Syrian army machine-gun position despite questions about whether the Syrian army was behind the fire into Israel.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon made clear he views Assad bearing the ultimate responsibility for any attacks from his side of the border.

Ya’alon’s office released this statement: “We view the fire from Syria last night and this morning at IDF troops in Israeli territory as severe. The IDF responded in accordance with government policy. Every breach of Israeli sovereignty and each firing from the Syrian side will be met with an immediate response to silence the source of fire as we identify them. We see the Syrian regime as being responsible for every violation of our sovereignty.”

Today’s round of violence comes as the rebels are reportedly being fingered in last week’s alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Khan al-Assal, west of Aleppo.

Britain’s Telegraph reported Sunday the Syrian military is said to believe that a homemade, locally manufactured rocket was by rebels fired, containing a form of chlorine known as CL17, easily available as a swimming-pool cleaner. Syria claims the warhead contained a quantity of the gas, dissolved in saline solution.

Informed Mideast security officials speaking to WND further blamed the rebels for the chemical attack.

The officials said it appears the rebels are attempting to create a humanitarian crisis to precipitate the deployment of NATO to fight the Assad regime.

Globalist doctrine

Any NATO deployment would likely come under the banner of Responsibility to Protect.

Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as cited by President Obama, is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of “war crimes,” “genocide,” “crimes against humanity” or “ethnic cleansing.”

The term “war crimes” has at times been indiscriminately used by various U.N.-backed international bodies, including the International Criminal Court, or ICC, which applied it to Israeli anti-terror operations in the Gaza Strip. There has been fear the ICC could be used to prosecute U.S. troops.

Billionaire activist George Soros’ Open Society Institute is also one of only three non-governmental funders of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, the group that devised the doctrine.

Obama’s national security adviser, Samantha Power, helped to found Responsibility to Protect, which was also devised by several controversial characters, including Palestinian legislator Hanan Ashrawi, a staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat.

Power, in April, was named the head of the new White House Atrocities Prevention Board.

The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, founded by Power, had a seat on the advisory board of the 2001 commission that original founded Responsibility to Protect.

The commission is called the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty. It invented the term “responsibility to protect” while defining its guidelines.

The Carr Center is a research center concerned with human rights located at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Power was Carr’s founding executive director and headed the institute at the time it advised in the founding of Responsibility to Protect. With Power’s Carr Center on the advisory board, the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty first defined the Responsibility to Protect doctrine.

Soros-funded

The Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect is the world’s leading champion of the military doctrine.

Soros’ Open Society Institute is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect. Several of the doctrine’s main founders sit on boards with Soros.

Activists Ramesh Thakur and Gareth Evans, for example, are the original founders. The two sit on multiple boards with Soros.

Board members of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect include former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, former Ireland President Mary Robinson and South African activist Desmond Tutu.

Robinson and Tutu have made solidarity visits to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip as members of a group called The Elders, which includes former President Jimmy Carter.

Annan once famously stated: “State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined – not least by the forces of globalization and international cooperation. States are … instruments at the service of their peoples and not vice versa.”

Right to ‘penetrate nation-states’ borders’

Soros himself outlined the fundamentals of Responsibility to Protect in a 2004 Foreign Policy magazine article titled “The People’s Sovereignty: How a New Twist on an Old Idea Can Protect the World’s Most Vulnerable Populations.”

In the article, Soros asserted, “True sovereignty belongs to the people, who in turn delegate it to their governments.”

“If governments abuse the authority entrusted to them and citizens have no opportunity to correct such abuses, outside interference is justified,” Soros wrote. “By specifying that sovereignty is based on the people, the international community can penetrate nation-states’ borders to protect the rights of citizens.

“In particular, the principle of the people’s sovereignty can help solve two modern challenges: the obstacles to delivering aid effectively to sovereign states, and the obstacles to global collective action dealing with states experiencing internal conflict.”

More Soros ties

“Responsibility” founders Evans and Thakur served as co-chairmen on the advisory board of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, which invented the term “responsibility to protect.”

In his capacity as co-chairman, Evans also played a pivotal role in initiating the fundamental shift from sovereignty as a right to “sovereignty as responsibility.”

Evans presented Responsibility to Protect at the July 23, 2009, United Nations General Assembly, which was convened to consider the principle.

Thakur is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, which is in partnership with an economic institute founded by Soros.

Soros is on the executive board of the International Crisis Group, a “crisis management organization” for which Evans serves as president-emeritus.

New world order

Doctrine founder Thakur has advocated a “global rebalancing” and “international redistribution” to create a “New World Order.”

In a piece in March 2011 in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, “Toward a New World Order,” Thakur wrote, “Westerners must change lifestyles and support international redistribution.”

He was referring to a U.N.-brokered international climate treaty in which it was argued, “Developing countries must reorient growth in cleaner and greener directions.”

In the opinion piece, Thakur then discussed recent military engagements and how the financial crisis has impacted the U.S.

“The West’s bullying approach to developing nations won’t work anymore – global power is shifting to Asia,” he wrote. “A much-needed global moral rebalancing is in train.”

Thakur continued: “Westerners have lost their previous capacity to set standards and rules of behavior for the world. Unless they recognize this reality, there is little prospect of making significant progress in deadlocked international negotiations.”

Thakur contended “the demonstration of the limits to U.S. and NATO power in Iraq and Afghanistan has left many less fearful of ‘superior’ Western power.”

Authorities in New Jersey allege a Muslim man beheaded two Coptic Christians, burying their bodies and heads and hands in separate graves near Philadelphia, bringing the horror of the persecution of Christians in Islamic nations to the United States.

According to New York’s WABC-TV, the Muslim was identified as Yusuf Ibrahim, 28. He was taken into custody after the bodies were found.

The report said investigators alleged Ibrahim killed the victims then severed their heads and hands, and buried the remains in the back yard of a home in Buena Vista, N.J.

The report said the victims were from the Coptic Christian community in the area. One of the victims had come from Egypt not many years ago.

Horrible massacres of children, worse than Sandy Hook

Nine days after the horrible slaughter of 20 children, ages 6-7, and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut, America is still reeling and grieving.

Every day across this veil of tears we call Earth, human beings are killed and murdered. We are no longer shocked or outraged, accepting that as routine. But not when the victims are little children. Thankfully, we are still capable of being jolted from life-as-usual by the slaughter of innocents.

While the cold-blooded murder of 20 little kiddies in an elementary school in Connecticut, each reportedly was shot 11 times by devil-worshipper Adam Lanza, is unimaginably horrific, a pastor reminds us of other even more horrible child-murders, both past and present.

In his Dec. 23, 2012 essay for News-Leader.com, “Once again, mankind faces Satan,” Bob Johnson, pastor of Ozark Mountain Assembly of God in Kimberling City, reminds us of these other slaughters of innocents:

1. King Herod’s slaughter of all infants, age 2 and younger

Killing of Innocents by Herod (by Leon Cogniet, 1824~Killing of Innocents by Herod (oil painting by Leon Cogniet, 1824)~

After learning from the three wise men, of the birth of the one destined to be the King of the Jews, “Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men, was exceedingly angry, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the region thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.” Matthew 2:16

Only God knows how many baby boys were torn from their mothers’ arms and thrown into the Nile River.

2. The Nazis’ slaughter of Jewish children

In Jerusalem, alongside the Holocaust Memorial is the Children’s Memorial. As one walks through the semi-darkness of that memorial, the names, ages and countries of a million children who were murdered by the Nazis, are read. Lighting the darkness are the flickering flames of scores of candles representing the young lives that were snuffed out.

3. Islamic jihadists’ use of children as suicide bombers

Children and women are also used as suicide bombers

In recent years, psychopathic Muslims intent on jihad, are using children as suicide bombers, strapping them with bombs and sending them to blow up buses and other public places. Field trips by schoolchildren in Israel are accompanied by armed guards. The latest such attack was the targeting of a school bus with an anti-tank rocket.

4. The slaughter of innocents in the womb

By far, the most dangerous location for children in America is not our schools. The most dangerous location for our children is the womb. Since Roe v. Wade, more than 55 million unborn children had been aborted — suctioned out, scraped out, poisoned, strangled in “late-term or partial-birth abortions” as their heads emerge from the birth canal, or simply left to die from dehydration and starvation if they somehow survived a late-term abortion.

Why aren’t we shocked, outraged, saddened, and grieving about these other slaughters of innocents?

Video evidence of Muslim crucifixion in Yemen

On August 20, 2012, I did a post on a WND report that the radical Muslim group Muslim Brotherhood (MB) executing Christians and opponents of Egypt’s new MB president, Muhammad Morsi, by crucifying them to death.

Immediately after I published that post, comments appeared on FOTM dismissing the WND report — the sources of which were Arabic TV and print sources from the Middle East! — and hinting that the Jews (Israel) concocted the story. The skeptics demanded to see visual evidence of photos or videos of the crucifixion.

Well, we now have the visual evidence, from Yemen. WARNING: It’s graphic.

Michael Carl reports for WND, Aug. 29, 2012:

There’s shocking new evidence from the Middle East of crucifixion by Muslims, this time of a “spy” in Yemen who allegedly was accused of U.S. sympathies.

WND recently confirmed a Sky News Arabia report of the crucifixion of dissidents in Egypt.

According to a report by Lebanon Today translated into English, the Yemeni jihadist group Ansar al-Shariah took control of the Azzan area of Yemen and imposed Islamic law, or Shariah. In the process, the group crucified three men, accusing them of being agents for the U.S. The executions reportedly took place several months ago.

Former PLO operative turned terrorism analyst Walid Shoebat says the inscription in the photo of one of the victims reads, “He was crucified for three days in accordance to Shariah.” Shoebat says Lebanon Today reported the group carried out the Shariah-prescribed penalties, explaining the multiple executions were retribution for passing information to U.S. forces to carry out attacks by pilot-less drones.

According to Shoebat’s translation, the report said:

“One they nicknamed ‘Captain’ was executed by crucifixion for three days at the entrance to the city of Jaar in the Abyan province, to be viewed by passersby entering and leaving the city. Two Saudis and a Yemeni were also executed by the sword at dawn at the hands of Ansar al-Shariah, and [the terrorists] absolved [a] fourth defendant from execution for his young age. A leader in Ansar al-Islam claimed that these who were executed belong to the province of Marib, [and were executied] for planting trackers on cars that belong to al-Qaida leaders to be targeted by the drones.”

According to Shoebat, the article said an analyst in the region claimed the crucifixions are “something new.” The report said:

“One researcher, Saeed Obaid Elaf, said that, ‘The incidents of these executions never occurred previously in Yemen but follows the sequence of events which occurred previously in Afghanistan and Iraq [where] … Islam is the religion of the state. In Iraq these [terrorists] see Iraq as the Islamic State of Iraq. ‘In Afghanistan, the ones who receive this type of executions are those who are considered spies. But in Yemen this is the first time we have seen such phenomenon, which has become a natural thing now because al-Qaida now exercises the powers of the state and it’s natural that it carries out such executions.”

Besides the image of the Yemeni brutality (see below), video has been posted online of the punishment.

The caption to the video explained it was a “spy who was executed by extremists for placing sensors in militant’s cars to direct U.S. attacks on them. This occurred during the recent Yemeni revolution to oust the long serving president, when extremists took advantage of the lapse in security as the former president diverted his attention to fighting the revolution instead of extremists.”

Shoebat said his sources confirmed there had been eight executions about the same time, including three by crucifixion and another five by beheading.

Here’s the video (WARNING: The images in the video are extremely graphic. View with caution.):

What passes as fashion among Muslims

We’re constantly clubbed on the head with the claim that Islam is the “Religion of Peace,” that jihadist crazies are just a miniscule minority, and that the Muslim world really condemns and abhors the 9-11 terrorist bombings, blah, blah, blah.

Yet every day, shirts like this are mass produced, marketed, and sold by street venders throughout the Middle East. But that’s just fine.  

Now, a few of our guys, after months of sleeping on the cold hard ground in that hell hole called Afghanistan — eating MREs, not having a hot shower, and away from their loved ones — get caught pissing on a dead Taliban and they are condemned by the world.
