This is coolbert:
From the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom the authority and pundit Daniel Pipes weighs in on the Islamic State. ISIL is not an entity with staying power? So says Daniel.
"The imminent demise of ISIL"
"U.N. Security Council Resolution 2249, passed unanimously on Nov. 20, sums up the consensus that the Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL, Daesh) poses a mortal danger to civilizatio"
Daniel specifically mentions TWO REASONS WHY THE DEMISE OF ISIL IS "IMMINENT"!
1. "ISIS is .. . . a little bug that the powers could quash at will if they put their minds to it. It survives only because no one really takes it seriously enough to fight with ground troops"
2. "Between its alienation of its subject population and its gratuitous and unrestrained violence toward foreign countries, ISIS has made enemies of nearly everyone . . . Friendless and despised, its every success shortens its life."
THAT "ENTITY" OF ISIL FOR AT LEAST A YEAR NOW HAS CONTROLLED A TERRITORY ABOUT HALF THE SIZE OF THE UNITED STATES EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER!
ISIL HAS HAD SOME RECENT SETBACKS BUT DOES HAVE "STAYING POWER" AND SHOULD NOT BE UNDER-ESTIMATED? DEMISE YES BUT PERHAPS NOT IMMINENT!
