My daughter and her ilk have wasted so much of my precious time so they can engage in a drunken vanity game, with power-trip!. Taking my grandson out of my life is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me. However, I am a authority on the Nazarites who were the Alcohol Justice of their day. What I know is now the National Dialogue that the President engaged in today in an attempt to define Radical Islam. Right-wing pundits are calling for a Crusade, another area I am schooled in.
For three days CNN and MSNBC have brought forth experts on the Islamic religion to say ISIS can not be defeated on the battlefield, but only in a battle of words. This blog is full of posts on the End Time. For years I saw this coming and have posted on alternatives, and, a better prophecy. I will be dedicating more time to putting an END to ISIS.

In the wake of more brutality by militant group Islamic State, Franklin Graham has said that even they will one day bow to Jesus.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, wrote: “The evil of ISIS really shouldn’t shock us – it is fully in keeping with their ultimate agenda of hastening a final apocalypse. God’s Word tells us that there will be a final battle one day, but it will result in the defeat of Satan and all those allied with him.
“One thing is for sure – one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Graham highlighted the video released by IS on Sunday showing the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, as well as the fatal shootings in Denmark over the weekend by a gunman suspected to have been inspired by the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.
The evangelist criticised President Obama for failing to “acknowledge the truth and call Islamic extremism what it is.”
“After a weekend of terrorism in Libya and Denmark, beginning today the White House is hosting a three-day “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.” I am perplexed as to why our President will not acknowledge the truth and call Islamic extremism what it is,” Graham wrote.
The ISIS article concluded with the threat that Muslims will continue to draw their swords until Jesus comes to slay the Antichrist.
“[T]he sword will continue to be drawn, raised, and swung until ‘Isa (Jesus — peace be upon him) kills the Dajjal (the Antichrist) and abolishes the jizyah [poll tax],” the article states. “Thereafter, kufr and its tyranny will be destroyed; Islam and its justice will prevail on the entire Earth. … But until then, parties of kafirin will continue to be struck down by the unsheathed sword of Islam.”
The article also presents numerous verses from the Koran as well as prophetic hadiths that highlight Islam’s reliance on the sword in fighting its enemies,” the organization explained. “In that regard, ISIS notes that the sword will continue to be drawn against Islam’s enemies until ‘Isa (Jesus) kills the Dajjal (the Antichrist), after which, it adds, ‘Islam and its justice’ will prevail on the entire earth.”
CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen claims that Dabiq provides a “key window into understanding” the Islamic State’s ideology. Explaining the end-times theology that appears to be present in the aforementioned article, Bergen said that the terror group has an ideology of an “apocalyptic cult that believes that we are living in the end times and that ISIS’ actions are hastening the moment when this will happen.”
WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged Western and Muslim leaders to unite to defeat the “false promises of extremism” and reject jihadists’ claims to represent Islam.
“The terrorists do not speak for a billion Muslims,” Mr Obama told delegates from 60 countries at a White House summit on countering radicalism.
“They try to portray themselves as religious leaders, holy warriors,” he said. “They are not religious leaders, they are terrorists.”
In the wake of brutal jihadist attacks in Europe and the Middle East, Mr Obama said more must be done to prevent groups like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda from recruiting and radicalising.
The battle, he said, was as much for hearts and minds as one waged by the military on the ground and in the air.
The “ideologies, the infrastructure of extremists, the propagandists, the recruiters, the funders who radicalise and recruit or incite people to violence,” must be tackled, Mr Obama said.
He challenged critics at home and moderate governments abroad to undercut the jihadist narrative that there was a “clash of civilisations” between an anti-Muslim west and a radicalised Middle East.
Domestically, Mr Obama has been criticised for not describing the attacks in Denmark, France, Syria and Libya as the work of “Islamic radicals”. He chose to face down the critics on Wednesday saying: “We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”
Top US diplomat John Kerry, who on Thursday will host a higher-level ministerial meeting aimed at drawing up an action plan, called it “the defining fight of our generation”.
He poured cold water on the notion that the thousands of foreign fighters flowing to the battlefields were all motivated by religious feelings.
Two Britons, among about 4,000 Europeans who have joined the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, had first bought copies of Islam for Dummies and The Koran for Dummies, he said.
But Mr Kerry made it clear that “we’re here for a simple transcendent reason, to safeguard the future for our people”, saying groups like the Islamic State “want to drag us back literally into dark ages…. obliterate knowledge as they destroy books and school rooms.”
Communities in the US and abroad should do their part, Mr Obama said, stressing al-Qaeda and the Islamic State “deliberately target their propaganda in the hopes of reaching and brainwashing young Muslims”.
They do so through “high-quality videos, the online magazines, the use of social media, terrorists Twitter accounts — it’s all designed to target today’s young people online in cyberspace”.
The summit has been in the pipeline for months, but took on greater significance after several attacks, including on a cultural centre and on a synagogue in Copenhagen, which left two people dead.
Among those attending is Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, where attacks by Islamist gunmen in January on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly magazine and a kosher supermarket left 17 people dead.
On Sunday, a video emerged apparently showing Islamic State jihadists beheading 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
Mr Kerry said the challenge was to “co-ordinate almost as never before”.
“The task before us is to combine the right partners, the right planning, the right degree of political commitment and over a sustained period of time we will win,” the veteran diplomat insisted.
Sessions on Wednesday highlighted existing anti-extremist programmes in Boston, Minneapolis-Saint Paul and greater Los Angeles, which involve community policing and other tactics.
The US State Department announced the appointment of a special counter-terrorism communications co-ordinator, but it was unclear what concrete outcomes there would be.
Meanwhile, Mr Obama spoke emotionally about a Valentine’s day card he received from an 11-year-old Muslim American called Sabrina.
“I am worried about people hating Muslims,” she wrote, “please tell everyone that we are good people, and we’re just like everyone else.”
