Israel Ready to Be Judged

In an episode of House, the eponymous doctor, played by Hugh Laurie, has a marvelous exchange with a judgmental patient:

Dr. Gregory House: [to a patient overly concerned with personal grooming] I’m wearing a rumpled shirt and I forgot to brush my hair this week. You have Athlete’s Foot in your nose. I’m ready to be judged.

The patient used the same clippers to cut his toenails and trim his nose hair. The look of disgust on his face is matched only by House’s gloating smirk.

The entire nation of Israel must be wearing the same expression. Tomorrow, Monday, they will be judged by that body laughingly (and dissemblingly) known as the United Nations Human Rights Council. It’s hard to count the lies in that name alone.

A body that includes that festering sore of human rights, Saudi Arabia:

Leaked Saudi cables, however, document what we knew all along: that despite the UNHRC’s official membership criteria — “the candidates’ contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights and their voluntary pledges and commitments made thereto” — dictatorships strike backroom deals to elect each other onto the 47-nation body, in Kofi Annan’s words, “not to strengthen human rights but to protect themselves against criticism or to criticize others.”

Amid the trove of Saudi diplomatic cables leaked by Wikileaks are at least a dozen that explain how the Saudis bought their seat with money, and by bartering their UN votes.

They even approached Russia with a you-scratch-my-back-I-lash-a-blogger’s deal, and budgeted $100,000 for their “campaign” for membership.

Israel stands ready to be judged:

And over the next two weeks, both Russia, which is waging a brutal war in Ukraine that has killed some 7,000 civilians, prompting no UN inquiry, and Saudi Arabia, whose indiscriminate bombing of Yemen is largely responsible for the 2200 killed, 10,000 wounded, 20 million in desperate need of aid, with no UN inquiry, will show solemn outrage over the report against Israel, and enthusiastically join the chorus of condemnation.

If that isn’t cynical enough for you, consider this nonsense in the context of Israeli and Saudi cooperation agains the mutual threat of Iran. Both sense the threat posed by Iran’s Long March toward nuclear weapons; both know the shock of American naivete and treachery. But that’s private. For the world’s eager consumption, the Saudis will go all Iron Chef on Israel.

PS: With only one disappointment, brilliantly captured by this typo:

Saudis Lose Bid to Behead of the UN Human Rights Council

Be Head, not Behead, in case the irony escaped you.

PPS: Among other states seemingly qualified to stand in judgment: Bangladesh, China, Cuba, Kazakhstan, Namibia, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, and—wait for it—Venezuela. Admit it: you’re laughing right now.

PPPS: If you have appetite for more pustules of hypocrisy, remember that the UNHRC was born out of the steaming dung heap of the…UNCHR

The 47-nation UN Human Rights Council will replace the current 53-country UN Human Rights Commission.

The existing body has been heavily criticised for having countries with poor human rights records as members.

Come on, if you’re not laughing, you must be crying. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Peace Keeping, Street Walking—Same Difference

To molest one woman may be regarded as a misfortune. To molest 58,000 looks like carelessness:

A study cited in a just-published evaluation of the ugly problem of sexual exploitation by U.N. peacekeepers calculates that as many as 58,000 women in Monrovia, Liberia, alone engaged in prohibited “transactional” sex with peacekeepers in return for food, clothing, money or other favors—mostly money– over a nine-year period ending in 2012.

Are there even 58,000 women in Monrovia, Liberia?

I can’t be the only one to be reminded of the great comic set piece from Mozart’s Don Giovanni, the so-called Catalog Aria:

By contrast, in 2012, the United Nations peacekeeping force in Liberia, or UNMIL, reported just nine substantiated allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse, out of 61 such allegations across all such U.N. missions, according to an annual report put out the following year by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s office.

The huge chasm between those numbers—one set from the U.N., the other from a study financed in large measure by the government of Sweden –is certain to keep fanning skepticism about under-reporting, flawed investigation methods, resistance to investigation and a culture of impunity toward sexual offenses in U.N. peacekeeping. They also help to underline tensions between various branches of the U.N. itself over how to cope with the sexual abuse problem.

The UN denied spreading cholera to Haiti, too (maybe they still do), though the intestinal discomfort of many otherwise-afflicted Haitians argues otherwise.

Deny, deny, deny—that’s their MO:

Among many other things, [the report] noted:

buck-passing behavior by U.N. departments and missions over who was responsible for reacting to sexual abuse allegations;
minimal responses when action was finally taken: between 2008 and 2012, the evaluation observed, a grand total of nine civilians and police personnel were referred to “national authorities” for prosecution;
a subsequent “data gap” on what those national authorities did next;
foot-dragging by peacekeeping missions in referring allegations for investigation;
“risk of loss of evidence/witness tampering” amid the delays;
slow action and even refusal to act on the part of missions regarding allegations of sexual abuse;
the refusal of troop-supplying countries to let the U.N. know within a 10-day limit whether they were investigating wrong-doing by members of their military contingents;
An observed “irreconcilable conflict of interest in requesting national investigators to investigate their own troops;”
slow investigations by OIOS itself when called on to do so (average investigation time: 16 months);
an admission that the U.N. has behaved “very poorly” in terms of help for victims of sexual abuse: only 26 out of 217 acknowledged victims of such abuse “have been referred for assistance and of those referred, little is known what assistance, in reality, was provided to them.”

“Slow action”, “buck-passing”, and “foot-dragging” are not examples of “transactional sex”. I don’t think.

The UN thinks it can stand in judgement of Israel. That would be abhorrent if it weren’t so funny.

United Nations Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

Though sorry is the only word that describes them:

Pierre Krahenbuhl, Commissioner-General of UNRWA, the UN body tasked with aiding “Palestinian refugees,” admitted on Wednesday that Hamas terrorists hid weapons at UNRWA facilities during their terror war against Israel last summer.

“We were the ones who found the weapons caches in our facilities during inspections,” Krahenbuhl told Yedioth Aharonoth in an interview. “The reason that the whole world knew about it is that we told them.”

Krahenbuhl’s reference is to at least three separate occasions in which rockets were found at UNRWA facilities. After the first finding of rockets at an UNRWA school, UNRWA workers reportedly called Hamas to come remove them.

Likewise, a booby-trapped UNRWA clinic was detonated, killing three IDF soldiers. Aside from the massive amounts of explosives hidden in the walls of the clinic, it was revealed that it stood on top of dozens of terror tunnels, showing how UNRWA is closely embedded with Hamas.

So, after confessing their collaboration with Arab terrorists, the UN must have been pretty contrite, huh?

Huh:

[W]e knew the revelation would lead to harsh responses against us in Israel, but try to imagine what would happen if we weren’t the ones who published it. The act of publishing proves we aren’t ready to allow it and show restraint.”

During Operation Protective Edge last summer Krahenbuhl entered Gaza three times.

“I was the only senior international official who condemned the rocket fire from the Gaza Strip at Israel,” he claimed.

While we wait for the ink to dry on his Nobel certificate, let’s consider that statement:

“I was the only senior international official who condemned the rocket fire from the Gaza Strip at Israel.”

Why? Did he draw the short straw?

After he uttered those bitter words, however, he rinsed his mouth with these sweeter sounds:

“When I see whole neighborhoods in Gaza that were destroyed by the IDF, or that there are UNRWA schools that were harmed after we gave the IDF their locations a dozen times and clarified that there are citizens there, then certainly we will put out condemnations,” added the UNRWA head, not mentioning how Hamas embedded its terrorist infrastructure in civilian centers.

Let’s make the UN bureaucrat feel better:

Commenting on Israel’s report on Operation Protective Edge last summer, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said Sunday that it was actually the third report thus far that has confirmed how the IDF had prevented civilian deaths. “I can say without any question that we in the IDF are careful about any and every small detail. We do not compromise on any principle of morality, or of law.”

Israel did everything it could to avoid getting into a war, and the matter was gravely considered before the IDF went into Gaza. “We very carefully weighed our steps, despite the never-ending rocket fire aimed at our civilians, which were dispatched from civilian areas, hospitals, mosques, and schools,” places that Israel avoided firing back at at nearly all costs, he said.

According to the report that Israel submitted to the UN over the weekend, the IDF went far beyond the call of duty in protecting Palestinian Arab civilians during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. “Israel sought to avoid the conflict and exercised great restraint over a period of months before the war when its citizens were targeted by sporadic rocket attacks from Gaza,” the report said. “Hamas launched attacks against Israel from the heart of its own civilian communities in Gaza and positioned its munitions and military forces there also, including in schools, hospitals and mosque.”

As opposed to the terror groups who think nothing of committing war crimes against the people they purport to protect, said Yaalon, Israel “displayed only values of that were life-saving. We set a very high moral standard, even for Western armies. When there was reason for an investigation or criminal charges, we lost no time in conducting them, and in punishing offenders when necessary.”

So, my little gray UN nonentity, you can assuage your guilt over complicity with Arab war criminals by knowing that Israel took care of your mess with the greatest moral and military care.

You’re welcome.

Speaking Of Health Care…

The best approach is to remain young

The NHS could be led to discriminate against the over 70s to meet ‘highly unethical’ UN health targets which seek to reduce premature deaths in younger people, senior medics have warned.

Under the proposed Sustainable Development Goals, UN member states will be given targets to cut the number of deaths from diseases like cancer, stroke, diabetes and dementia by one third by 2030.

However because many are age-related illnesses people who succumb to those diseases from the age of 70 are not deemed to have died prematurely and so are not included in the target.

In an open letter published in The Lancet, an international group of ageing specialists say the new guideline sends out the message that health provision for younger groups must be prioritised at the expense of older people.

Prof Peter Lloyd-Sherlock, professor of social policy and international development at the University of East Anglia, and lead author of the letter, said: “This premature mortality target is highly unethical, since it unjustifiably discriminates against older people.
“We already know that there is age discrimination in cancer care and surgery and these targets give that the stamp of approval.

Hmmm. That doesn’t look so good for the Baby Boomers.

Speaking Of Death Penalties…

Egypt has condemned former President, Mohammad Morsi, to death, according to NPR news.

I heard this on the radio, but an internet search fails to find it. Is it possible that NPR is wrong? Or that the rest of the media just isn’t interested? Let’s check the Israeli media. Here it is.

I don’t recommend clicking on it, however, because an ad with sound begins.

An Egyptian court on Saturday sought the death penalty for former president Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 other members of the Muslim Brotherhood in connection with a mass jail break in 2011.

Mursi and his fellow defendants, including the Brotherhood’s top leader Mohamed Badie, were convicted for killing and kidnapping policemen, attacking police facilities and breaking out of jail during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak.

The court, expected to make a final ruling on June 2, also sought capital punishment for Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater and 15 others for conspiring with foreign militant groups against Egypt.

The cases, like all capital sentences, will be referred to Egypt’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for an opinion before any executions can take place.

Morsi can appeal the verdict, although he has said the court is not legitimate, describing all legal proceedings against him as part of what he calls a coup staged by former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in 2013.

Let’s compare Egypt to Israel. Morsi was apparently convicted for releasing terrorists (Muslim Brotherhood, same thing as Hamas) from prison. Who else used to do that? Why Yasser Arafat, of course! He famously had a revolving door, putting people behind bars for the media, and then releasing them within hours or days. Arafat, you may recall, received the Nobel Peace Prize. Did Israel execute Arafat? Nope. Nor did they execute any of the people who planned the suicide attacks, delivered the bombs, strapped them onto the “martyrs”. And today his successor was referred to as an “angel of peace” by the current Pope. Don’t even get me started on church history regarding Jews.

Interesting that in two days we have two examples of death sentences passed down on terrorists. Arguably citizens of either the most “progressive” city in America (or the second most “progressive”, next to San Francisco), decided to kill the tossel-haired youth who admitted to killed four people in Boston/Cambridge. That’s a low yield compared to Nobel Prize Winner, Yasser Arafat. Or Morsi, for that matter. What a cynical world this is.

Perhaps The UN Needs To Police Our Cities?

Would they, could they, please leave their rapists at home, though?

The United States heard widespread concern Monday over excessive use of force by law-enforcement officials against minorities as it faced the U.N.’s main human rights body for a review of its record.

Washington also faced calls to work toward abolishing the death penalty, push ahead with closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center and ensure effective safeguards against abuses of Internet surveillance. Its appearance before the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva is the second review of the U.S. rights record, following the first in 2010.

A string of countries ranging from Malaysia to Mexico pressed the U.S. to redouble efforts to prevent police using excessive force against minorities.

“We must rededicate ourselves to ensuring that our civil-rights laws live up to their promise,” Justice Department official James Cadogan told delegates, adding that that is particularly important in the area of police practices and pointing to recent high-profile cases of officers killing unarmed black residents.

“These events challenge us to do better and to work harder for progress through both dialogue and action,” he said at the session’s opening. He added that the government has the authority to prosecute officials who “wilfully use excessive force,” and that criminal charges have been brought against more than 400 law-enforcement officials in the past six years.

Several countries, including Brazil and Kenya, voiced concern over the extent of U.S. surveillance in the light of reports about the National Security Agency’s activities.

More at the link, keep reading if you’re interested. I do think that we should take this seriously. Perhaps Brazil and Kenya could work together and provide the United States with cops?

Keeping the Peace By Having a Piece

I’m not saying this story isn’t disgusting. It is:

Hungry, homeless young boys in the Central African Republic were forced by French soldiers to perform sex acts on them in return for food or money, the director of an advocacy group said Thursday, citing a confidential United Nations report on alleged abuses.

Paula Donovan, co-director of AIDS-Free World, told CNN the report detailed testimonies from six children interviewed last year by staff from the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The children give harrowing accounts of their own experiences and abuses they had witnessed, and they recounted the experiences of friends of theirs, she said. “There are a few cases where a boy describes the sodomizing of a friend by soldiers who are threatening to beat him if he tells anyone about what they are doing,” Donovan said.

The allegations concern French soldiers deployed to the Central African Republic as peacekeepers.

The abuses were allegedly committed against a dozen children at a displaced persons’ camp at M’Poko International Airport in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, between December 2013 and June 2014.

Who hasn’t had sex in the back of a CAR?

Sorry, that was terrible. I’m going to heck.

But don’t act all shocked and amazed: this is what UN peacekeepers do.

Crikey, it’s got its own Wikipedia page. The UN commissioned its own study of the problem in 1996, and you know how slow the UN is to respond to criticism.

The Central African Republic is just going to have to line up behind (the jokes write themselves) Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, Kosovo, Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone, East Timor, Haiti, and Sudan. Give or take.

If this blog has any role too play (a honking big if), it is to strip away fraudulent facades, to fracture fairy tales. From the Security Council to UNICEF, the UN is a criminal conspiracy. And the whole world has a sore bottom from its abuse.

Hey BTL! Let’s Give Our Coveted ‘Ya Think?™ Award To The UN!

This is a profound insight

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday he deplores that a UN inquiry found “Israeli actions” killed at least 44 Palestinians and injured some 227 more at UN premises being used as emergency shelters during the 2014 Gaza conflict.

“It is a matter of the utmost gravity that those who looked to them for protection and who sought and were granted shelter there had their hopes and trust denied,” Ban wrote in his cover letter to a UN inquiry report into the incidents.

“I will work with all concerned and spare no effort to ensure that such incidents will never be repeated,” he said. [note to Ban Ki: One way to avoid repeating these problems is to eliminate the terrorists – Aggie]

In his letter Ban also said that Palestinian militant groups had put UN schools in Gaza at risk by hiding weapons in three locations that were not being used as shelters.

“The fact that they were used by those involved in the fighting to store their weaponry and, in two cases, probably to fire from is unacceptable,” Ban said.

Last July, during Operation Protective Edge, the UN said it was investigating how 20 rockets ended up in one of its vacant schools in Gaza, which were closed for summer vacation.

The rockets were found during a regular inspection by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees of its facilities.

On second thought, I cannot issue the award, because the UN is still blaming the victim – Israel. But they are accurate in their assessment that it would be better not to hide weapons in schools. Jeesh.

#BringBackOurBabyMamas

After a year in Boko Haram’s custody and sale into forced marriages, “#BringBackOurGirls” no longer seems appropriate:

On the eve of the one-year mark since nearly 300 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria, Malala Yousafzai released an “open letter” to the girls Monday.

“Like you, I was a target of militants who did not want girls to go to school,” she writes in the letter. The 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner survived an attack by the Taliban, which had singled her out for blogging from Pakistan about the importance of staying in school.

On April 14, 2014, Islamists with Boko Haram kidnapped the girls, prompting an international campaign for their safe return, which used the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. On Monday, UNICEF announced a new campaign for the 800,000 children who have been displaced in northeast Nigeria, using the hashtag #BringBackOurChildhood.

Malala is admired globally as a figure standing for peace. On Sunday, a NASA astrophysicist named an asteroid after her.

That’s great. Seriously. If anyone deserves to have a space rock named after her it’s Malala. But so what? The next girl she frees will be the first. I have nothing against her, of course, but I detest posing, preening, and self-importance. (Again, that’s not aimed at her.) If you want the girls back, UNICEF, you’ll have to strap on a pair (of Rugers) and go find them. They’re probably not far from the beds their 87-year-old goat-herd husbands have them tethered to. And they’re probably carrying a child, literally and figuratively.

Of Malala I would only say being a figurehead isn’t a great career. That ship behind your public face is hardly a juggernaut. UNICEF, UNESCO, Univision, whatever—leaky dinghy doesn’t begin to do it injustice. One last point: I don’t think the Chibok girls could even read her open letter. Remember what Boko Haram means.

Things Are Tough All Over

You think you got it bad?

The UN agency that supports Palestinian refugees said Sunday that just four percent of its emergency work in Syria has been funded so far this year.

UNRWA spokesman Christopher Gunness said the agency needs around $250 million to fund its program, which provides cash distributions for roughly half a million Palestinian refugees affected by the war in Syria.

He claimed that if there isn’t immediate funding, the agency will have to stop running the program “in a matter of days.”

How often have I read (and shared) a similar story? All those billions in pledges to rebuild Gaza? About $1.45 in real money, most of it in pennies.

He said that for the more than 95 percent of refugees reliant on assistance, “it is quite literally a matter of life and death.”

According to the UNRWA website, there are 480,000 Palestinian refugees remaining in Syria after four years of civil war, more than half of whom are internally displaced. Another 59,000 registered refugees have left the country for neighboring Jordan and Lebanon. The UN agency says that one-third of its facilities in Syria are currently inoperable, due to damage or active conflict.

Ninety-five percent on welfare is not a sustainable model. Don’t get any ideas, Barack.

To think, all of those unhappy Arabs could be in their condos in Ramallah, instead of UN tents and lean-tos, watching Real Housewives of Benghazi and popping pistachios, if they had only made peace with Israel. Sad.

Still, more room for the Jews!

Hey, Sierra Leone—Talk to Haiti

Catastrophe strikes! Call the UN!

Oh wait…

Call the UN, then catastrophe strikes!


Your outbreak is very important to us. Please stay on the line.

The medical organization that sounded the first alarm about the deadly outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa last year has once again blasted the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) for refusing to recognize the epidemic’s magnitude, downplaying its rapid spread, and failing to take the lead in the battle against the disease even after it was well under way.

Moreover, “the flexibility and agility for a fast, hands-on emergency response still does not sufficiently exist in the global health and aid systems,” warns Joanne Liu, president of Medicins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) the front-line, private medical relief organization that first warned of the fast-growing Ebola disaster a year ago this month.

Even though WHO has since voted to reform some of its torpor, she says that putting the U.N. organization on an efficient and effective footing will not “happen overnight.”

Overall, the update says, there have been 24,743 “confirmed, probable and suspected ” Ebola cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — the three worst-affected countries — since the outbreak began, and 10,206 reported deaths.

That toll includes nearly 500 health workers, including 14 members of MSF’s own staff.

One important reason for the massive flowering of the fast-moving, high-fatality virus –the biggest eruption of Ebola ever — was the inaction and ineptitude of WHO, MSF charges.

According to the MSF retrospective, WHO’s negative role went beyond foot-dragging to actually fighting against the warnings first voiced by the voluntary organization, and included accusations that MSF was causing “unnecessary panic.”

To be fair, government inaction and coverup by the African nations themselves hurt efforts as well. Let that be a lesson to us all when politicians start making guarantees about health care.

Of course, the title refers to the UN’s swift maneuver to introduce cholera to the most impoverished nation in the Western Hemisphere, after a devastating earthquake. Poverty, voodoo, machete-wielding gangs—they had every miserable fault, but cholera. Now it’s endemic, thanks to the Nepalese UN aid workers who dug their latrines next to the watering hole. And denied it for years.

And don’t get me started (not now, anyway) on UN complicity in Palestinian Arab infantilism.

Just add this to the list of crimes against humanity committed by an organization that laughably wields a Human Rights Council numbering China, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela among its members. Death by cholera or ebola is practically guaranteed, and a blessing in disguise.

Now You’ve Gone and Done It

I tried to tell you ISIS, infidel to terrorist, that this was a big mistake. Just remember if your knife and my neck should ever meet who was looking out for the caliphate.

The head of the United Nations’ cultural agency, UNESCO, on Thursday demanded an emergency meeting of the world body’s Security Council following the mass destruction by jihadists of ancient artifacts in Iraq.

“This attack is far more than a cultural tragedy – this is also a security issue as it fuels sectarianism, violent extremism and conflict in Iraq,” UNESCO chief Irina Bokova said in a statement quoted by the AFP news agency.

“This is why I have immediately seized the President of the Security Council to ask him to convene an emergency meeting of the Security Council on the protection of Iraq’s cultural heritage as an integral element for the country’s security,” she added.

The statement came after the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group on Thursday released a video in which its terrorists are seen smashing ancient statues to pieces with sledgehammers in the main museum in Mosul, their biggest hub and Iraq’s second city.

They are also shown using a jackhammer to deface a large Assyrian winged bull at a huge archeological site in Mosul.

Archaeologists and heritage experts have described the destruction as a catastrophe and compared the 2001 dynamiting by the Taliban of the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan.

Our political leadership tries to tell us that global warming is the greatest threat to life on earth. If they’re referring to the ice locking New York and Boston Harbors and the Great Lakes, they might have a point. I’d still nominate Islam, at least some number between 14% and 27% of it.

PS: I don’t wish to frighten anyone, but this is whom you’re dealing with, ISIS:


You so much as sneeze on one more Assyrian statue and I swear to whatever God you hold holy that I will hunt you down, hunt your family down, hunt your neighbors down, hunt your townspeople down, hunt your clergy down, and leave not a trace—not even a memory—of you behind, except for a black scorch mark in the desert sands. Capisce?

Don’t think UNESCO can’t do it. They can disappear millennia of existence, they can disappear you:

Less than a week before the start an exhibit chronicling 3,500 years of Jewish ties to the Land of Israel, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has postponed the event, slated to open at its Paris headquarters Monday, out of concern that it could be harmful to the peace process.

Failure to open the exhibit as planned, warned the dean of the Wiesenthal Center, Rabbi Marvin Hier, would “confirm to the world that UNESCO is the official address of the Arab narrative in the Middle East.”

UNESCO and the center worked on the exhibit, “People, Book, Land: The 3,500-year relationship of the Jewish People with the Holy Land,” for two years with the help of Hebrew University of Jerusalem Prof. Robert Wistrich, who designed its panels.

Each panel, Wistrich said, had been approved by UNESCO. From the biblical forefather Abraham to the State of Israel’s status as “a start-up nation,” the exhibit was designed to highlight and affirm Jewish roots in the land, on which the Jewish people alternatively flourished and suffered throughout the generations.

No one from the Egyptian pharaohs to the Romans to the Babylonians to the the Nazis to the massed forces of the Arab armies could extinguish Israel the way UNESCO can. Think about it, ISIS.
