ISIS induced Fear, What Do They Want?


Reflections: ISIS and Fear OR We LISTEN……

Isis: leaders gather in Paris as UK edges towards military action

There was “no time to lose” in dealing with the threat from Isis. “Iraq‘s combat against terrorism is also ours,” he said.

Daesh leaders are working at setting up a state and do not deny the existence of terrorist volunteers from European countries who may or may not have dual nationality … it goes beyond what we experienced before with al-Qaida,” he said. “These criminals are experts at the brainwashing of young people in these regions. They control and prepare them for terrorist actions. They use modern technology to spread propaganda and terror through the internet and social media networks.

“Iraq is here today to show its will to stand up against this terrorism enemy that makes no distinction between Iraqis. We must sent a strong message to the orphaned mothers who have lost their children that we stand beside our people.”

More than 40 countries have signed up to a US-led plan, but not all are willing to offer Iraq direct military support. Arab participation in military action would give a wider sense of legitimacy to the campaign. No Arab state has publicly promised to participate in military action but it is believed several have in private, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the latter of which recently bombed Islamist militia targets in Libya from bases in Egypt.

ISIS induced fear, what is it?

Troubling times, a maze of confusion, plenty of blame but so few solutions.   Isis-induced fear triggering our reaction as media propoganda,  a spectrum of others with unclear motives incite the masses down a familiar path.   Once again  “WMD”s , once again fear reigns.  

Ironic that the man who stood against the grain in Congress and said “No, ” even removed Americans from Iraq,  will through folly do as Bush did.   

ISIS popped up out of nowhere.  Seems to me there is mental illness  OR a severe cry for help from Sunnis oppressed.   

Today,  I looked up the meaning of Isis and was quite surprised….Failure to Listen may lead down the path of WMDs and there were none in Iraq after we accused and invaded without evidence.

Once again fear reigns, Lets Kill Them!    We have already… ISIS is the outcome of unnecessary wars waged by Americans against  Iraq.

Do not let fear prevent negotiation.

At home, entire groups of Americans live in terror.

Police culture   is very interesting… FEAR deployed to control and render Americans helpless, stressed, distracted and apathetic.   The complication is rising mental illness, addiction and violence, exactly what we see today and that is spreading rapidly and indiscriminately.

 …After 911,  we pulled together but  haste and anger pushed us to war.  The international community even allies are no longer by our side.   And after years of war in Iraq and Afghan we are broke.     Guantamano and racial profiling  compound embers of  fear with burst of flames spreading rapidly . 

ISIS is what you get  when people  are forced to watch rentless oppression…remember survivors of the WMD Iraq wars with Shock and AWE…(I was not awed yet I watched)…who lost family and friends…they are humans just like we are…More information before getting involved, especially since black people are ensnared in polices of  slavery.  Our government and traditional media are one, USA is no better and even worse than ISIS.

I fear our government more than I fear ISIS and that was not always the case.   Sadly, structural racism fell on President Obama’s lap, please do not ignore the connection with ISIS.  

An opportunity to create new systems based on the community.   Technology that integrate with priorities of community as voiced by the people and not the government or one percent.     …The Anti-Corruption Database will provide patterns of behaviors along with context.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Great comments!

    To me ISIS is the a Hollywood terrorist group. It does everything by the books…..on terrorism. What makes ISIS unique is it’s technologically savvy, making one think ISIS could be anyone or anything.


  2. I still don’t know what ISIS wants. What does it want and why? All we see are threats followed by beheadings we thankfully don’t see. And why are so many young people attracted to ISIS and its brutality, to its capacity to terrorize? PLEASE, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON AND WHY?!
