    You mean they didn't read it somewhere, it's due to our politicians?

    What? That's seriously what you got from my comment? Most of the people who get involved with ISIS can barely read in the first place.

    OK, I'll ask these two questions:

    1. Do pretty much all of our politicians invoke the name of God in anything they do? This is a yes or no question.

    2. Do the people who run ISIS have TV, and can they show this to their people to try to prove that this is a religious war, even through selective editing and misleading video? And do they have a vested interest in doing so? Again, yes or no questions. Try not to hurt yourself.

    Actually God is not the name of God.

    American is referring to Abrahamic God's name being Yahweh me thinks, although I could be totally wrong seeing as American likes playing semantics more than he does discussing actual topics.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Wish that we could Monte.....but you know how BO peep and the lost sheep just haven't been all up front about what is taking place with these guys. Moreover even both sides of their divide acknowledge it will take more than just themselves to deal with this Infection.

    Actually after reading all you put up in here it shows EXACTLY how much you don't know and why you always use those BS and weakass left talking Points. Just to utter some comments to those Conservatives. Thinking you actually knew something.

    You don't and didn't.

    Now what Part about 3 different Terrorist Organizations declaring War on us and our People.....confuses that grey matter sitting on those shoulders. Yeah thats what I thought. You got nothing.....your usual. What happened, your hackin just can't make the grade.

It is exactly what ISIS wants to do....the crusades is a very powerful narrative in the region but of course American Christian Conservatives would ignore such a thing.. they want war just like ISIS wants.
    So, the terrorists are real Muslims?
