This is a red alert for anyone in our government – our two greatest ideological enemies are planning a truce in order to join forces against their greatest threat – the Western world.
Not only is this an absolute validation of why we need a strong military, but it’s why we need to take pre-emptive action against the people that are literally killing their own people in barbaric form on a daily basis a a matter of ideology.
CNN reported that the leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, just issued a message to ISIS:
For nearly two years, al Qaeda and ISIS have fought an unusually public battle for supremacy in the global jihadist movement. Al Qaeda disowned ISIS early in 2014 because al-Baghdadi ignored its directive to stay out of Syria. And its affiliate in Syria, Jabhat al Nusra, is viscerally hostile to ISIS.
Now al-Zawahiri has urged all jihadists in Iraq and Syria to cooperate in the face of a common enemy. And if his words are heeded — though it’s a big “if” — they could herald a real change on the Syrian battlefield, where the Bashar al-Assad regime has benefited from perennial infighting among rebel groups.
He goes on to this chilling proclamation:
Al-Zawahiri returns to the theme in the second lecture in a series billed as “The Islamic Spring,” released Sunday. He says “unequivocally that if there is fighting between the crusaders, the Safavids, and the secularists, and any group from the Muslims and the mujahideen, including the group of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and those with him, then our only choice is to stand with the Muslim mujahideen, even if they are unjust to us.”
“We call for cooperation with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his brothers,” al-Zawahiri says, “to push back the attack of the enemies of Islam.”
The Obama administration is, of course, silent on the matter because either he thinks it’s not his problem, or he feels that it’s what needs to happen in a Muslim world. All I know is that 2016 can’t come soon enough. We need someone with some strength leading this country!
