The Islamic State, is the most serious threat facing world stability and humanity today, a group of terrorists grew from a few hundreds to about 30-40 thousands, with brutal propaganda attracting the world’s degenerate psychopaths to join, control the area the size of Britain. They have no air force, no outlet to seas thus have no navy, no sophisticated satellite system or high technology intelligence service, no diplomatic mission, no state structure, no facilities to manufacture meaningful arms, yet the mighty USA led Nato, western allies, EU and UK seems unable or unwilling to cognation the danger… questions needed to be asked….do we have strategy to confront this satanic psychopaths …the answer is NO.

To deal with terrorism threat, mainly from British jihadists volunteers with the Islamic State IS (although IS pay a jihadist five times as much the salary of a qualified Syrian doctor ), Prime Minister David Cameron introduced a set of measure in the Commons Monday. But is this enough more overall strategy needed and how to tke the fight to the terrorists
The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ISIL, one of the most brutal and dangerous terrorist groups in modern times which has captured territory in Iraq and Syria has declared itself an Islamic “caliphate” and called on Islamic factions worldwide to pledge their allegiance. The move is an expansion of the group’s ambitions to wage a war and pose a direct challenge to the central leadership of Al Qaeda, which has already disowned it. In a statement from the group posted on Islamist websites and Twitter, the group has renamed itself “Islamic State” and proclaimed its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as “caliph”, the head of the state. But the grope is not only a threat to the region, it poses a threat to UK national security with hundreds of British Muslims fighting there and will sure come home to cause atrocities here.
Before condemning Russia for using veto in UNSC, ruling Crimean referendum illegal or blaming Mr Putin for the Ukraine crisis, let us remember our glass houses, or our record of interventionism and above all EU role in creating this crisis in the first place.
ِTwo million voters in Crimea decided by over 97 percent yes in a referendum, to rejoin Russia (going back to 1954 status quo before the peninsula was given to Ukraine by Moscow without the Crimeans being consulted ) one day after Russia vetoed an American sponsored UN Security Council resolution aiming to block the referendum. Given the ethnic balance of the peninsula population the result was no surprise. Even a ‘no’ vote wouldn’t have kept the 1954-2014 status-quo since the other choice would have been more power to Crimea and less rule from Kiev.
While our Foreign Secretary carry on condemning the result, with a growing American size mouth, and threatening nonsensical un-implementable sanctions , and our Fleet Street subs coming up with cold-war-era headlines, let us just remember some historic facts about glass houses, goose and gander and the the like metaphors. We, and our American allies hailed elections in Afghanistan and Iraq ( countries with no traditions of fair elections or fair-play , and who don’t play cricket) as great democratic steps forward, even though they were held under military occupation ( or our & American troops kicking down doors while families having dinner was not “occupation” the same way Arabs and Muslims wouldn’t consider colnialising Spain, Egypt, and formally Christian lands AS occupation, but god’s liberation from infidels?); elections held while and terrible strife going on with car bombs round the corner from almost every polling station.
If we follow foolish European Union Foreign Policy (God knows why they should have a foreign policy department, commissioner and team financed by our taxes) over Egypt, we risk a great deal of our interests being badly damaged, not just in Egypt but among Egypt powerful, rich influential allies like Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman as well as Jordan ( they are also essentially part of wider historic British interest in Middle East and the Gulf region).
The House of Lords Constitution Committee to quiz three Ministers this week in the final of a series of evidence sessions of the peers inquiry into the constitutional arrangements for the use of armed force. This week’s session will focus on Parliament’s role in approving decisions to use armed force overseas, bearing in mind that MPs, from all parties, in the past few weeks were pressurising government not to supply arms to Syrian rebels fearing that might become a mission creep with British military involvement in that troubled and troublesome part of the world.
Against expectations, against experts advice, and against commonsense, Britain and France bullied the majority of European foreign ministers to lift the sanctions on supplying arms to Syrian “rebels” ( if indeed we know who they are), in a move which majority of sane observers see as escalation. pouring oil on fast spreading fire with real possibility that missiles would fall into te hands of terrorists to be used against us.
Two raids by Israeli Airforce on targets inside Syria within 48 hours of each other throw many questions in the air. Will it let the two-year-old Syrian civil-war spill over border and become a region war as we have seen before when the Israelis get involved? Will it prove Syria’s dictator Bashar Assad’s claim that the rebellion started by protests in 1011 was a wider Israel, American plot to weaken what the Iranians call ‘the regional resistance to Israel and American aggression’? Or will it hasten Assad’s downfall? or will it suck Israel into a wider conflict if, as expected, Iran instructs its allies, Hezbollah in Lebanon to launch attack on Israel as they did in 2006; or perhaps a Hamas in Gaza to launch more rocket attacks on southern Israel forcing the Jewish state to take action in Gaza which would claim civilian lives and trigger waves of protests in Muslim countries?
An overwhelming Deja vu pricked my sense watching Foreign Secretary William Hague making his statement to the commons about Syria and other matter. Same like reading columnists pontificating on the Middle East, or reading Arab press – especially those sponsored by our allies in the Gulf. America’s president issue strong warnings to another Arab dictator(yes a handful of them still around despite what naively and historically wrong called “ Arab Spring”) dictator accused of using (WMDs) or chemical weapons, our prime minister straight away joins the chorus disapproval, while the opposition ( from the dictator’s own nation), backed by our Arab friends in the Gulf call l for western intervention. Heard it all before?

As the European Union agreed today to step up the pressure on Iran through another ubstantial package of sanctions, the Prime Minister David Cameron will tonight tell an influential gathering of the Jewish community that we need the courage to give these sanctions time to work while making clear that in the long term, if Iran does not address the concerns of the international community, nothing is off the table.
