    Speaker Boehner supports Obama ISIL plan.
    Please see I$$A's comments about Obama at the end of this article and judge for yourself.

    He was brought up a muslim, went to school in madrassas, and believes that he has to be careful not to inflame billions of other Muslims by painting them all with the same brush. I get that. The problem is that most Muslims share some beliefs with the radicals. Few Muslims support Israel's right to exist as an example, even the so called moderates living in the Middle East. The moderates may not believe in head chopping but there aren't many moderates that rise up in support of defeating the radicals and the radicals will not be defeated until it is seen as uncool in common Islamic societies.

    I don't think Obama is an idiot. He just doesn't have enough common sense to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions on the heel.

    Besides, you forgot al Shabob.
    It's just absurd that you equate a band of 50 nobodies who protest at funerals with thousands of beheading Islamic terrorists.

    No I would suggest 8 people with offensive signs only represent themselves, while tens of thousands of people taking over nations in the name of Allah represent Islam as they see it, and as they are destroying people to prove.

    It's remarkable you would even attempt an equivalence.

    Yes, I mean ISIL doesn't mean "Islamic State of Syria and the Levant" or anything. Nope, nothing Islamic there!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Again, I wasn't comparing Westboro to ISIS. Your SAT scores must have been atrocious.

    I think that's what Obama was saying. If you claim to be a follower of Islam, but you kill innocent children, are you really a follower of Islam? Obama is saying that ISIL is not because they do not actually follow important Islamic teachings.
    Funny how this same argument is never taken up when the left likes to point out that many Catholics of good faith support birth control, abortion, etc. You never claim that they're not really Catholics because they don't follow Catholic teachings.

    But nothing from my first three lines since you know they are true, right humboldt.
    Says a lot for people who "like" what you said to me.

    Please try to stay focused on the Present Moment of Awareness in the World--your President is--
    congress with their vacations--not so much .

    That's nonsense, of course, but it's a cute line and good for a laugh.

    Well there wasn't much "democratic" about the "German Democratic Republic" or the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea."

    (That's East Germany and North Korea, in case you weren't clear).
