ARE WE SURPRISED?

Why does Barack Obama continue to call the terrorist group ISIS……ISIL? ISIS stands for “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective its all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess! It’s Israel. When anyone refers  to the Islamic State as ISIL, they are sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that they personally do not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as a territory belonging to the Islamic State. Now you know why the Administration says there is no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS.  But they do have a plan, and it’s not really all that nice. The plan seems to be, to drag their feet, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces them to do. To buy ISIS as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can. It seems that the ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel. Now you know a little bit more why words are chosen  so carefully, and what’s really behind the name ISIL.

    Pastor Bill & Kathy,

    Wow! Your explanation of the ISIS and ISIL was an eye-opener to say the least!! I've heard it as we are so blessed to get FOX NEWS with our digital provider but had not given it much thought! SHOCK!

    We ALSO get I24 Israeli news! In June Tim was flipping through and saw a commercial for their airline--news came on and guess who was being interviewed? Calev Myers!!! Now we turn it on and listen time to time and did so especially during the attacks by Hamas.

    Again, thanks and appreciate keeping in touch!

  2. Your information on Isis, Isil, and Israel came at a good time. We go to Bible Study Tuesday Evenings and we are doing a study on Israel, etc. I'm taking the information you have on Sunday's service to the Bible Study.

  3. I was just thinking again this morning about how cool it is that our services are seen by so many people around the country/world...that from our little church we are able to have a significant missionary presence!
