The Mozlem Brother sympathizer Obama will never stand up to the Iranian-Russian axis of evil that includes Iraq of which Obama pulled US troops out, Syria, Gaza and Lebanon. The war in Syria is on the control of the Middle East from Iran to the Mediterranean Sea by the Iranian-Russian axis that Obama allows happening in order to further isolate Israel. Obama proved to be the Big Iranian Brother in the White House who tries to run the clock down for the Iranian regime and his terrorist organizations in the Middle East and allow the Russian–Iranian cooperation in the nuke plant in Iran to be finalized until the November elections. Obama promised flexibility for the Russian Iranian regime after the elections, which means bad news for Israel that Obama is throwing under the bus for his relations with Russia and Iran-Syrian axis of evil.

Did you read? US has no money for world conquest.

President Barack Obama has pursued a policy of increased domestic entitlement spending at the expense of our foreign commitments and our military capacity. Mr. Obama correctly recognizes that his program allows him little or no means to deal effectively with an issue like the Syrian civil war. Onerous spending cuts and a reoriented strategic doctrine leave us with a military unwilling and unable to support a more muscular foreign policy than collaboration in the "abdication" and delay we witness daily at the United Nations. We are left impotent to aid Syrian freedom fighters or to confront the powerful bloc of nations—Iran, Russia, China—that has cast its lot with the bloody Assad regime.

I wouldn't asking about Jews,I was talking about the Islamic Extremists like the Taliban,Hezbollah,HAMAS & Al-Qaeda to name a few of them.
Why do they feel the need to shed blond just because someone doesn't acknowledge Allah?
Why do these people,Muslims,go batty enough to kill just because somebody named a teddy bear Mohammed?
Its crazy how they carry on about over the least little thing that offends them.

If you believe that you are a very naive simple minded person.
I would bet half their leaders are atheists and don't believe in Allah.

I'm not so naive and simple-minded
Look at what they are doing in Iraq and Syria,these people are Muslims and they go out strapping bombs to themselves,putting bombs in cars etc. and they kill their own people by the handful.
I know that the people of Syria wants the president of Syria out and the Islamic extremists are wanting US Soldiers out of Iraq and Afghanistan but the Islamic extremists are mot only killing US forces and our allies but they are also killing their own kind as well.
Why is it that Muslims require maim,torture and bloodshed to uphold their Islamic faith?
That is all I'm asking.

Humanitarian intervention in Libya and Egypt that put the Radical Brotherhood in power. Ousted the two leaders that kept peace in the area for over 40 years.
We lost 2 drones and over 2500 Missiles in the process

Saddam's WMD were shipped to Syria.
Iran pulling all the strings. Guarantee Iran has Nuclear weapons with the help of China and Russia.

I can see you are a propagandist.There are no "freedom fighters" in Libya or Syria they are terrorist imported into those countries by america,israel,qatar and saudi arabia to try and overthrow the rightful governments so puppet governments can be installed.The majority of Syrians support Assad just like the majority of Libyans support the Gadaffi government and the things it gave them.
