Investors Op-Ed: “The Obama Administration crows that ISIS membership and territory has shrunk, but the Brussels and Istanbul attacks illustrate its advances in Europe and elsewhere. Scoring PR points doesn’t protect the homeland.
You would think it was VT Day — Victory Over Terrorists — the way the Obama administration, in its final lame-duck year, describes the campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh.
Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Wednesday boasted to Congress that “we have taken back 40% of the territory that Daesh controlled a year ago in Iraq and 10% in Syria,” adding that as to operatives, “we assess Daesh’s numbers are the lowest they’ve been since we began monitoring their manpower in 2014.”
The “we’re winning” message was also delivered by the president himself on Fox News Sunday.”
Opinion: The illusion of winning against terror is as phony as your health care plans going down by $2400 per year. That is not a guess, it is prophetic.
We know from Exodus 17:16 and Deuteronomy 25:17 that the perpetual enemy of God’s people is Amalek. We know that from 1 Chronicles 1:36 that Amalek is the illegitimate grandson of Esau and we know from Isaiah: 63:1-3, that Esau or Edom as God called him (Genesis 36:1) will still be around until the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Everything else is politics.
