An Oldie But . . . 'Goodie' ???

June 17, 2014 - Every now and then I come across posts on Facebook that I just feel compelled to share, even if they are not directly related to Israel.

The video report below, from Fox News, is one of those. It is not new -- in fact, it is a report from more than a year ago, but I feel it is still relevant.

I found it quite frightening, especially given the fact that President Barack Obama currently is faced with the decision of how to handle America's foreign policy vis a vis the rapidly approaching takeover of Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL) -- an Al Qaeda affiliate. Mosul and Tikrit have already fallen and Baghdad is looking very vulnerable.

Its sister chapter, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has already captured considerable territory on the other side of the border, in the country once entirely ruled by the rather ruthless dictator, President Bashar al-Assad, and now torn apart by a raging civil war.

Together, the two will probably soon form a new radical Islamist emirate which may then look to swallow Jordan as they move on to Sinai and Gaza.

But I digress. . . 

Please view the video.
