This gesture from the US government was a departure from the Obama administration’s policy of zero tolerance to negotiations with terrorists and releasing prisoners; thus, in preparation for talks with Afghan officials, the US state department redefined the Taliban as an organization that is no longer included in the US enemy list.
The Nigerian government officially identified Boko Haram as a terrorist organization on June 4, 2013, and on July 8, the British government began the process of adding Boko Haram to its list of foreign and domestic terrorist organizations. But although the Obama Administration has offered a bounty for Boko Haram leader Abubaker Shekau, they have not followed suit.
“So all the high school students who want to play football at that school have to practice in the middle of the night because Muslims are thrusting their Islamic practice into the non-Islamic public sphere.Those non-Muslim kids have to disrupt their normal sleep cycle because the Muslims won’t bend and the non-Muslims will. And step by step, inch by inch, orthodox Muslims gain one concession after another as our tolerant culture yields to their intolerant culture. Is that okay with you? It’s not okay with me.”
The mere mention of Kelly’s name raises the temper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), another group with a history of pro-Islamist positions (though it did support the overthrow of Egyptian President Morsi).

Imagine a world where Saudi Arabia couldn’t spend billions of dollars every year funding mosques and madrassas around the world, and exporting materials and imams that espouse radical Islamist ideology. That day may come sooner than anyone could have ever dreamed. Already the Saudi’s are feeling the pinch thanks to the “fracking” revolution.
Moreover, if the Dutch are so deeply concerned about humane treatment and fairness, one would expect them to consider, too, the right of every man, woman, and child – and in this case, specifically of every American soldier – to be safe and protected from being slaughtered in a terrorist attack. By every measure of “humanitarian” concerns, such security should be paramount.
