On Wednesday, President Obama gave a speech (full speech below) on the brutal murder of journalist James Foley, who was gruesomely beheaded in a video released by the Islamic State (ISIS). The Islamic State clearly wanted America to watch the video, as many radical Islamic freaks have been gleefully posting it under the hashtag #AmessagetoAmerica. In the video, the Islamic State also threatens to kill American Steven Joel Sotloff (pictured) if President Obama does not stop military strikes.
A new video (full video below) is also intended to dissuade America from pursuing the Islamic State. The sad truth is that the Obama administration is not worried about the Islamic State. However, they are worried about politics.
Wayne Dupree, CEO & Founder at WAAR Media Group, weighed in on the senseless and cowardly slaughter of Foley in a video the prominent conservative posted Wednesday. Dupree always speaks his mind; but his usual banter has been replaced by an angry frustration that surely matches the sentiments of many Americans.
In the video, Dupree addressed President Obama directly, saying that he is responsible for the death of James Foley due to his “policies” and “inaction.” Dupree then referenced an article in the New Yorker from January, where President Obama compared ISIS to a “jayvee” team.
Your golfing! Your vacations,” he lamented. “You are supposed to be the g**damn President of the United States!

The Islamic State has been sending other messages under the hashtag, as well.

It should be noted that the embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also addressed the gruesome video saying that it was reflective of “barbarism” and “savagery,” and further said that ISIS and Hamas are “branches on the same tree.”
In President Obama’s speech Wednesday, he said in part, “[P]eople like this ultimately fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy” and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Obama, of course, went golfing after his speech.

A new video has been making the rounds, presumably to scare the United States military. In addition to this video, the Daily Caller reported on yet another message to America, warning that ISIS “will drown all of you in blood.”
The latest is not explicitly violent, but it does show journalist James Foley:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5DF1B3x1Cg]
CBS News declared today,
The Islamic State militant group is so ruthless in its attacks against all people they consider heretics or infidels that it has been disowned by al Qaeda’s leaders.
Yesterday, the Yemen Times reported that Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen declared “solidarity” with the Islamic State,
We announce solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the crusade. Their blood and injuries are ours and we will surely support them…
It almost seems that the mainstream media wants to isolate the Islamic State as somehow “more radical” than other terrorist organizations. However, in this author’s opinion, anyone who kills innocent people in the name of Allah stands shoulder to shoulder with the Islamic State. The Arab Spring is no more. Now, it is the Islamic Spring, and murderous radicals are not diminishing in number, but increasing exponentially.
