~ Yesterday ISIS released yet another video of their evilness; a mass execution of Egyptians that they had been holding hostage.
I’ve had enough
ISIS has released videos in which they cut the heads off of people from Japan, the United States, Great Britain, Jordan, Egypt and more. Not to mention last week the human aid worker Kayla Mueller died at the hands of ISIS; a woman who was NOT apart of the war, she was simply helping refugees along the Syrian/Turkey border.
I’VE HAD ENOUGH
This is getting to be ridiculous. Not only is ISIS guilty of these awful atrocities, they are also guilty of kidnapping women and children, they are guilty of crimes against humanity.
It’s the bloody 21st century and ISIS is definitely one of the worst bloody collection of rejects. What am I missing? Why doesn’t the coalition of European and Middle Eastern countries STOP ISIS?
A big part of the problem is that we are all worn out from war. The dumb Iraq thing went on forever; there were no weapons of mass destruction, Iraq is no closer to being a safe country to live in then if you were to live next door to an ISIS lieutenant.
Another part of the problem is the media. We live in an era when newspapers have lost their influence and mojo. There were more newspapers per:person back in the early 1800’s then there are now.
Journalists back in the day weren’t afraid to REALLY study an issue and then to write a column about what they REALLY thought.
Todays journalists are a cadre of irrelevant num nuts. The leaders of our countries know that the journalists don’t hold much sway and influence over the people; so our Prime Ministers and Presidents spend more time having tea with each other and planning parties then they do solving world problems.
The Internet is our only resort. The Internet is our best option at stopping ISIS. The revolution of New Media has already taken place; more people get their news and information from Internet sources then they do from the TV or a newspaper.
We’ve got to figure out how to end this reign of terror by ISIS.
On my Live Streaming show last week, I suggested that perhaps we need to send more human aid workers to these dangerous zones; perhaps the Muslims in the Middle East need to see European and American missionaries and human aid workers who demonstrate love and care.
All that many of Muslims in the danger zones of the Middle East have ever seen are Brit’s and Americans in combat boots and fatigues. Hasn’t the time come for them to see that the average Western person does not walk around with a machine gun and combat boots all day?
I also believe the time has come for a Gandhi type figure to rise up in the Middle East. We need to find someone over there who speaks a message of peace; we need to find someone over there who is grounded in GOOD theology, not this bull shit message of “kill the infidels” that ISIS propagates.
ISIS is using the Internet to spread its message of hate and terror.
The journalists in the West have utterly failed at pressuring our world leaders to address the problem more effectively….and who knows, perhaps our world leaders don’t know how to address this problem. Perhaps they are just a bunch of dumb num nuts who only know how to spend money.
I believe the Internet is our last resort at stopping this problem; we must put pressure on people in positions of power to make wise choices, we must teach our young adults that “No greater love is this; than a man/woman lay down their life for a friend”, and that Kayla Mueller lay down her life for people on the other side of the world, for orphans and widows whom she had never known before.
We must further this discussion till the world here’s our voice.
just a few thoughts as I sipped my coffee this morning,
