September 3rd, 2014 No comments

An image grab taken from a video released by the Islamic State and identified by private terrorism monitor SITE Intelligence Group on September 2, 2014, purportedly shows 31-year-old US freelance writer Steven SotloffWashington (AFP) – "Islamic State" jihadists have murdered a second American reporter, releasing another video Tuesday showing a masked militant with a British accent cutting the throat of a US captive. In the latest footage, the 31-year-old reporter Steven Sotloff calmly addresses the camera to say he is a victim of President Barack Obama's decision to press on with air strikes in Iraq against the jihadists. Obama later Tuesday authorized about 350 more American troops to beef up security at US diplomatic facilities and protect personnel in the Iraqi capital Baghdad. At the end of the five-minute video recording, discovered online by the SITE terrorism monitoring group and seen by AFP, the militant threatens another captive, identified as British citizen David Cawthorne Haines.

Obama orders 350 more US troops to Baghdad: White House

September 3rd, 2014 No comments

President Barack Obama ordered about 350 more US troops to Baghdad to protect American diplomatic facilities and staff in the Iraqi capital, the White House said. The Sunni extremist group has declared an Islamic "caliphate" in regions under its control in Iraq and Syria, after it swept through much of the Sunni Arab heartland north of Baghdad and then stormed minority Christian and Yazidi areas. The US has been carrying out air strikes on IS positions in Iraq and already has hundreds of personnel shoring up diplomatic security in Iraq. "The president authorized the Department of Defense to fulfill a Department of State request for approximately 350 additional US military personnel to protect our diplomatic facilities and personnel in Baghdad, Iraq," a White House statement said.

Yasmine Bahrani asks the White Man about Muslims

September 2nd, 2014 No comments
Now if Ms. Bahrani is addressing herself to Muslims as she claims  (“The decision before the community is this: Either we reject the Islamic State and groups like it in the clearest possible terms, or we allow them to become the face of Muslims.”) shouldn’t she be writing in an Arabic newspaper or even in an English newspaper published in a Muslim country? Those who address themselves to Muslims in the Washington Post are really just presenting their credentials to the White Man.  As for the lack of demonstrations about ISIS: well, Ms. ISIS.  The rise of ISIS is largely due to Saudi and Qatari funding and arming of Syrian rebels with Western blessing. So maybe you should demonstrate in Washington DC and US allies in the region don’t allow demonstrations. Got it?
