It irks us, and probably most Americans, that our POTUS, acting as CIC of our US Military, continues to insist on calling IS/ISIS/The Islamic State/Daesh ISIL.
Calling our Islamic jihadist military enemies ISIL only feeds the growing Islamic State’s megalomaniacal evil desire of wiping our ally Israel and USA off the global map.
Militant Muslims of Islam desire to conquer every square inch of the globe for the ultimate goal of establishing a one world Sharia compliant government aka global Islamic Caliphate in the name of allah & Muhammad.
We would hope all US Military leadership would understand the wrongful act of defining our allies as enemies and our enemies as allies. USA can’t obviously win wars without the definition of Islamic being applied and targeting of the Islamic enemy as the enemy.
We must all stop appeasing the Islamic enemies of Yeshua Ha Mashiach, The Triune Judeo Christian God IJN+ it only makes Islamic evil temporarily more empowered. The Lion of Judah, King Jesus has already won the Eternal War and is coming again soon to defend Israel.
