Why Does Obama Call ISIS/Islamic State ISIL?  Whose Side is He On?

ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.   What is the Levant?  It is a term used for centuries for the area shown in the map to the left, or larger.  The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey.

Many see a coded message in Obama’s use of the term ISIL, a lack of recognition of Israel’s right to exist.

First Fox News has chronicled Obama’s use of the word:

There has been little notice of the president’s insistent use of the acronym “ISIL” to describe the Sunni forces currently rampaging across Iraq, executing Iraqi military and creating a new massive refugee population in an already unstable area.

With the exception of Reuters and now the Associated Press, most news organizations have not referred to ISIL until President Obama began using the term, which stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. But when Obama used the term 5 times on June13, and 16 times in his commencement speech at West Point on June 19th, he was using his bully pulpit to make a point.

Most, like this publication, continue to use the widely accepted acronym ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or al-Sham, but both describe the same murderous organization. The difference is that the Levant describes a territory far greater than simply Iraq and Syria. It’s defined as this: The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey. Fox News Report


President Obama dismissed in public ISIS/ISIL as a non-threat, a JV (Junior Varsity) group of nobodies, even after they had major military victories. We now know he had been briefed continually for a year before he said that.  They told him ISIS was a grave threat:   

The official, who asked not to be identified because the PDB is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product providing the President with analysis of sensitive international events, said the data was strong, and “granular” in detail, adding a policy maker “…could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad.”

The source who is familiar with the deliberations said “(we) were ready to fire, on a moments notice, on a couple hundred targets,” but no order was given. In some cases, targets were tracked for a “long period of time” but then slipped away.  http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/09/02/briefed-daily-isis-year-and-still-pres-obama-called-them-jv-and-still-he-has-no-strategy


Here is a video analysis of Obama’s actions from the viewpoint of it being incompetence, not on purpose, by Greta Van Susteren:


This is an analysis of Obama’s actions from the viewpoint of him doing it on purpose:

Before Its News has this to say about ISIL/Obama:

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 near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!

It’s Israel.

When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.

Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one. Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His “plan”to buy ISIS as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.

And it’s working.       



Considering what we know Obama knew, and what he said and did, it is hard to discount the theory Obama is doing this on purpose.


What are the plans, of what Obama refers to as, the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant?  They have publically stated they will put ISIL’s flag on our Whitehouse and have provided a 5 year plan, as detailed below:



PressTV, the Iran state media outlet has this to say about ISIL’s 5 Year Plan:

Takfiri ISIL militants currently operating in Iraq have unveiled a five-year plan for expanding their control into Europe, a report says.

The terrorist militants plan first to extend their so-called Islamic caliphate into Eastern Europe, including Romania, Bulgaria and Greece, and then conquer as far as Austria, the Daily Mail said in a report.

The entire Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey and Iran are marked in ISIL’s map.

“The legality of all emirates, groups, states and organizations becomes null by the expansion of the caliph’s authority and the arrival of its troops to their areas,” ISIL spokesman, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, said.

The ISIL has also posted a video on the web, threatening to invade and take over Spain.

The minute-long footage shows two Spanish-speaking men saying Spain is the land of their forefathers and that they are prepared to die for their nascent Islamic State.  http://www.presstv.ir/isil-eyes-europe-control-in-5-years/

  1. I find it very interesting that the demographics of ISIL look exactly like the area that God promised to Abraham,Isaac,and Jacob.See Genesis 15:18b “…Unto thy seed have I given this land,from the river of Egypt unto the great river Euphrates…”

  2. Fortunately our president doesn’t worry about stupid partisan inferences – he concerns himself with literal accuracy. The word Levant describing the area consisting of Turkey through Syria to Egyp including Lebanon, Israel, the Palestinian territories and Jordan is the L in ISIL. In Arabic, that word is A-Sham, hence the S at the end.
