ISIS Threatens to Invade Jordan, 'Slaughter' King Abdullah
Gatestone ^ | 06/12/14 | Khaled Abu Toameh

Posted on 06/12/2014 7:10:11 AM PDT by winoneforthegipper

The recent victories in Iraq and Syria by the terrorists of ISIS -- said to be an offshoot of al-Qaeda -- have emboldened the group and its followers throughout the Middle East. Now the terrorists are planning to move their jihad not only to Jordan, but also to the Gaza Strip, Sinai and Lebanon.

Failure to act will result in the establishment in the Middle East of a dangerous extremist Islamic empire that will pose a threat to American and Western interests.

"The danger is getting closer to our bedrooms." — Oraib al-Rantawi, Jordanian political analyst

What is amazing to me as I was researching ISIS this week is their ability to take most towns without much effort. They do this by complete terror.

Also they actually establish a functioning government and society after they over-take a city.

They are truly Caliph driven and should be considered the worse possible outcome.

Well, Obama has been kneeling before terrorists ( and anyone else for that matter).
All the people killed when we lose Iraq will on Obama. And there will be massive bloodshed. Along the line of Pol Pot killing fields.
But As long as Obama can play more golf, its ok.

These guys are serious. They’re calling Mosul by its old biblical name of Nineveh.

30,000 Iraqi troops in Mosul dropped their weapons and ran from 800 ISIS fighters. Now it appears that the government is fleeing.

For Jordan to fall would be the beginning of the end for Israel. Jordan is the most rational neighbor they have.

All the blood is directly on the hands of our biased media.

They gave us Obama.

They are responsible.

I just read that ISIL has been busy removing the border between Syria and Iraq - because they are proclaiming the transnational caliphate. They are literally out there with back hoes doing this.

They also got $429 Million out of Mosul banks.

Plenty nice seed money for more trouble.

They have been doing life amputations, they slaughter entire families and children, https://now.mmedia.me/lb/en/nowsyrialatestnews/549573-isis-kills-102-year-old-man-family-in-syria

BEIRUT - The most radical jihadist group fighting in Syria on Sunday killed a 102-year-old man along with his whole family in the heart of the country, a monitoring group said.

The 102-year-old was shot dead in his sleep, with the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) also killing his son, his grandson, his great-granddaughter and her mother, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Correct. And their treason continues.

Even in the words they use.

THEY NEVER USE THE WORD “terrorist”.
It is “fighters” in “restive areas”.

They are puppets of the ongoing coup d’etat from 2008.
