47 Percent Of Israelis Back Iran Strike, Islamic Terror Attack On U.S. Soil - Just The Beginning

Almost half of Israelis would support a unilateral strike to prevent Iran obtaining the atomic bomb, an opinion poll carried out after Tuesday’s nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers found.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents in the poll published by the Maariv newspaper on Friday said they thought the agreement would accelerate Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon, not prevent it as claimed by the powers.

Asked “Do you support independent military action by Israel against Iran if such action is needed to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon?” 47 percent said yes, 35% said no and 18% expressed no opinion.

Additionally, a majority of Israelis (51%) felt Jerusalem should use whatever means necessary to convince the US Congress to reject the deal, while only 38% said it was now time to engage with US President Barack Obama on the execution of the deal in order to achieve conditions preferable to Israel. Eleven percent said they did not know what the best course of action was.

Asked: “In your view, does the agreement that was signed bring Iran closer to obtaining a nuclear weapons capability?” 71% said yes.
The paper did not give a sample size or margin of error for the poll carried out by Panels Politics Polling Institute.
Israel has long opposed any deal with its arch-foe Iran, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lambasted the landmark agreement as a “historic mistake.”
Netanyahu has said Israel is not bound by the deal between Iran and the six world powers and on Wednesday said the agreement was “not the end of the story.”
Israel is believed to have the Middle East’s sole, if undeclared, nuclear arsenal. Iran has always denied any ambition to acquire one, insisting its nuclear program is for peaceful energy and medical purposes only.
Israel’s air force commander Major-General Amir Eshel said earlier this year that while the use of military force against Iran’s nuclear facilities would be an act of “last resort,” the military had “the genuine capacity to get the job done.”
The Channel 10 TV report in April said that Israel had invested “immense resources” in preparing for a possible strike on Iran. “The Israeli Air Force has been building the capacity to attack Iran for more than a decade,” it said.

Cancel your summer vacations.

That was the order AIPAC’s executive director, Howard Kohr, gave his employees in a staff meeting convened this week at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee after the United States announced the Iran nuclear deal.
With the influential pro-Israel lobby group pushing for Congress to reject the deal negotiated by the Obama administration, it’s all hands on deck. Lay leaders, too, are canceling their summer plans, and AIPAC activists already are calling lawmakers and hitting synagogue listservs with appeals to can the plan. 

The two months that Congress has to review the deal will feature a pitched battle pitting the Obama administration and backers of the agreement against opponents and the Israeli government.
“We are undertaking a major and significant effort to urge Congress to oppose the deal and insist on a better agreement,” an AIPAC source told JTA.

“I am calling to urge the senator/representative to oppose the Iran nuclear deal because it will not block Iran from getting a nuclear weapon,” the script says.

The Israeli government is sending officials to Washington to campaign against the plan, starting next week with the opposition leader, Zionist Union chief Isaac Herzog – a bid to show the wide breadth of Israeli opposition to the plan.
Additionally, according to multiple sources, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made clear to his U.S. counterparts that he will reject all U.S. overtures to discuss additional U.S. defense assistance to offset any expansion of regional Iranian influence until he is certain all avenues to killing the deal are unavailable.

Under a law passed earlier this year, Congress must review the deal achieved Tuesday in Vienna between the major powers and Iran, and may disapprove it. If a resolution of disapproval succeeds, Obama has said he will veto it, in which case congressional leaders may submit the deal to an override vote. That would require two-thirds of each chamber to vote no on the deal – a long shot.

The city of Chattanooga, Tennessee is in a state of shock.  On Thursday, a heavily armed Islamic terrorist sprayed a Navy and Marine reserve center in Chattanooga with gunfire without any warning.  Four U.S. Marines were killed, and three other individuals were seriously wounded.  The shooter has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, and it is being reported that he used a “high-powered rifle” to conduct the assault.  He did not survive the attack, and it is not clear if he even intended to.  

Authorities are investigating whether or not he had any connection to ISIS (which he almost certainly did), but nobody is disputing the fact that he was Muslim.  Hopefully this horrific incident will serve as a huge wake up call for millions of Americans.  Islamic terrorists are already here – and this is just the beginning of their reign of terror on U.S. soil.

In a previous article, I asked the following question: “Why Aren’t Americans Taking The ISIS Threat ‘To Drown All Of You In Blood’ Seriously?

It is still a question that I am asking today.  ISIS has made it very clear that they plan to kill as many of us as they possibly can.  But most Americans seem very apathetic about this.  Perhaps it is because they have been hearing about what a “threat” that “al-Qaeda” was for so many years and yet nothing ever seemed to actually happen.

And of course there are many liberals that have been trained that it is politically incorrect to even use the phrase “Islamic terror”.  Following the lead of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other radical leftists, the only “terrorists” that they want to talk about are the “right-wing extremists” that they take great joy in persecuting.

Today’s shooting will hopefully shake many Americans out of their politically-induced comas.  The threat of Islamic terror inside the United States is greater than it has ever been before.

All that “al-Qaeda” ever seemed to do was hide out in caves and release a poorly crafted propaganda message every once in a while.  ISIS, on the other hand, is an entirely different animal.  Every single day they are publicly committing some of the most vile atrocities imaginable, and they are successfully fighting a three front war against the Syrian government, the Iraqi government and the Kurds.  Meanwhile, Islamic groups all over the planet are swearing allegiance to them, and their ranks are being swelled by an endless influx of eager new recruits.
Just today, a group affiliated with ISIS in Egypt hit an Egyptian Navy frigate with a guided missile.  The reach and capabilities of this ruthless terror organization are both continually expanding, and what we just witnessed in Chattanooga today is just the tip of the iceberg.

As ISIS grows, there are going to be more attacks like this.
ISIS is rapidly growing bigger and stronger, and at this point it has truly become a global organization.  For example, the following comes from a Bloomberg reportabout the growth of ISIS in southeast Asia…

And of course ISIS has been seeking to establish a very strong presence inside the United States as well for quite some time.  This is something that even the FBI acknowledges

In a dramatic assessment of the domestic threat posed by the Islamic State, FBI Director James Comey said Thursday there are “hundreds, maybe thousands” of people across the country who are receiving recruitment overtures from the terrorist group or directives to attack the U.S.
Comey said the Islamic State, also known as ISIL, is leveraging social media in unprecedented ways through Twitter and other platforms, directing messages to the smartphones of “disturbed people” who could be pushed to launch assaults on U.S. targets.
It’s like the devil sitting on their shoulders, saying ‘kill, kill, kill,”’ Comey said in a meeting with reporters.

If ISIS is able to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction and is able to get those weapons inside the United States, they will use them.
So what happened today in Chattanooga is just the beginning. said Thursday that Abdulazeez’s “motive is not yet known.” However, only the most blinkered and politically correct could fail to see it. At 10:34 on Thursday morning, an Islamic State supporter tweeted: “O Americans Dogs / soon / You Will see wonders / #Chattanooga / #USA / #ISIS.” The shootings began in Chattanooga, according to AP, “around 10:30 or 10:45 a. m.” The story, however, didn’t break for some time thereafter, strongly indicating that Islamic State operatives knew about the attack beforehand.

What’s more, it was just the kind of attack in the United States that the Islamic State has called for. Back in September 2014, Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani published a lengthy piece entitled “Indeed Your Lord Is Ever Watchful,” consisting largely of a call to Muslims to mount jihad attacks in Western countries. “You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit [rebels against Allah],” al-Adnani wrote. Thursday’s was on multiple military facilities – a clear attempt to target soldiers and troops of the “tawaghit.” Al-Adnani added: “Strike their police, security and intelligence members….Knocking off a police, military or any other law-enforcement officer sends a chilling message to the so-called ‘civilians’ and fills their hearts with consternation.”

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s murders remind us yet again that the forces of the global jihad wish to strike here in the United States, and are able to do so. In response to this, the Obama Administration remains committed to a policy of fantasy and wishful thinking in regard to the jihad threat: it refuses to call it by name or acknowledge its motivating ideology, and has hamstrung the ability of intelligence and law enforcement agencies to understand the motives and goals of the jihadis.

This policy of unreality leads to numerous wrongheaded policies that damage U.S. interests and endanger Americans – with the Iranian nuclear deal being the most obvious and glaring recent example. Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, according to, is from Phoenix; although AP reported that he was from Hixson, Tennessee. If he was indeed from Phoenix, was he a member of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix? If he was, he would have that in common with the jihadis who tried to commit mass murder at our free speech event in Garland, Texas in May, and two other jihadis. Has the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix been investigated? If not, why not?

Barack Obama’s statement on this attack, predictably, did not mention the Islamic State, or identify the shootings as a jihad attack. The Obama Administration’s policy of denial and obfuscation regarding the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat is costing lives. It is time for it to end, and if the President and his associates cannot be persuaded to do something that is in the interests of protecting Americans, then those who want to take his job on January 20, 2017 should make a linchpin of their campaign a pledge to stop Islamic State attacks on American soil, and to do whatever may be necessary to do that: instituting a moratorium on immigration from Muslim countries (Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez originally hails from Kuwait), sealing the borders, and calling upon American Muslim groups and mosques in the U.S. to institute genuine, sincere and inspectable programs teaching against the understanding of Islam that the Islamic State represents. Although Muslim groups in the U.S. ostensibly reject that understanding, no such programs currently exist.
None of this is going to happen, and that only ensures that Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez will by no means be the last Islamic State jihadi to murder Americans. Is there any limit to the weakness, fecklessness and refusal to face reality of America’s current leadership? Is there any limit to the willingness of the majority of the American public to put up with all this? This unreality and indifference is only going to grow more costly.


Today in the Islamic Middle East, Christians like the Abada family in Iraq suffer real persecution the likes of which most of us can scarcely imagine. 
It has been nearly a year now since Ayda and Khader Abada have laid eyes upon their three-year-old daughter.
On August 22 of last year, ISIS militants snatched little Christine from the arms of her mother, Ayda. To this day, her parents haven’t a clue as to her fate.
Ayda and Khader Abada are the parents of five children.  On August 6, 2014, a little less than three weeks before their daughter was snatched from them, Islamic State zealots took command of their home city of Qaraqosh.  But because Christine’s father, Khader, is blind, he and his family, not unlike many of their neighbors with comparable disabilities, were left with little option but to stay put.  
According to Open Doors, an organization dedicated to shining the light on the persecution of Christians around the world, since the Abadas had “‘no place to escape,’” it was their hope that their conquerors would extend “‘mercy’” to “‘the blind and disabled[.]’”
Unsurprisingly, their hope was in vain, for in no time, ISIS corralled the Christians of Qaraqosh for what they saidwas to be a medical examination.  Just as unsurprisingly, ISIS lied.
The Christians were robbed of their property and the purging of the city was under way.
The website of Open Doors reports that among “the valuable belongings” of which Christians were divested were clothes, gold, and their identification cards.  Given the “chaotic” nature of the event, the Abadas were overlooked.
But they were far from safe.
The Abadas and the other Christians were commanded to board a bus the windows of which were covered with dirt so as to prevent them from seeing out.  Ayda held little Christine closely to her as her Muslim captors walked up and down the aisle. When one of them, someone named “Fadel,” approached Ayda, he looked her over.
Then he wrenched little Christine from her mother’s arms.
The child cried for her mother and her mother cried and pleaded for mercy, begging the kidnapper to return her daughter to her.  “Fadel” was unmoved.  He walked off the bus with Christine and reentered the building to which the Abadas and their Christian neighbors were originally taken.

Several attempts by their church to secure information regarding Christine’s fate have thus far been to no avail.  Through Open Doors, Ayda asks for “everyone to pray for Christine and for us, as we are living in the hope that someday Christine will come back.”
It brings this Catholic no pleasure to consider that at this time, as the Abadas and legions of Christians around the Earth endure horrors of this sort at the hands of Islamic savages who revile them because of their faith, that my Pope—the most visible spokesperson for Christianity in the world—prefers to direct his moral outrage at “capitalism” and “inequality.”

Egypt's Islamic State affiliate said on Thursday it fired a rocket at an Egyptian naval vessel in the Mediterranean Sea near the coast of Israel and the Gaza Strip.
The militant group Sinai Province has focused mainly on attacking Egyptian soldiers and police in the Sinai peninsula, killing hundreds since the army toppled Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 after mass protests against his rule.
Photographs distributed online by the group appeared to show a rocket heading towards a ship and setting it ablaze on impact, though the militants' version of events could not be verified.

The Egyptian military said in a statement a coastguard launch had exchanged shots with "terrorist elements", causing the vessel to catch fire. It said no one was killed in the attack.

So, we have Islam wreaking havoc all over the world, beheading Christians, wanting to destroy Israel as they surround it almost completely, waiting patiently for the emergence of their Messiah who will bring about the rule of Islam in the world, and the world is blind to the truth of God's revealed word. For hundreds of years, ON ISRAEL'S TEMPLE MOUNT, Arabic inscriptions on the dome of the rock have said "God is only One God. Far be it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And God insufficient as Defender. The Messiah will never scorn to be a servant unto God, nor will the favored angels."

The truth about Islam will only become more apparent. Let's just hope the church doesn't stay asleep to the threat of Islam and the fact that we will be called to endure as martyrs until the Day of the Lord when his wrath is poured out.

Yellowstone has melting asphalt and road closures on a fairly regular basis. It's a very "alive" place thermally and heats up frequently in odd places
