ISIS or ISIL explanation.???????
  HERE is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL.  I have been suspicious of the termISIL to which the administration  stubbornly clings.

ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.  Iraq is to the east of Jordan
  (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north. 
ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east  of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” - and is basically the land along the  Mediterranean - that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along  that region.
By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it  in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean - and Israel  sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the  Levant ” - which is therefore part of ISIL.   
If you've wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and  especially Obama calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world, here's the answer.
Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations.  In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State.
Have you ever wondered about that? Here is the difference:  What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant?  Israel.  ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.  Now, to us Westerners we don't really make much of a distinction, do we?  No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same.  But how  would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it?  Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.
The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south.  If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the  nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? It’s Israel.
When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL,  he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East  that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation,  but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.

Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no  stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one. Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as  long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him  to do.  His plan is  to buy ISIL as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.

Listen as Obama, his press secretary, the spokesperson for the  State Department, and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spell out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind.  And it’s working.
The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of  weapons, and in their latest foray  have captured Syrian fighter jets  and now 12 commercial passenger planes.  With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. 
The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change.  The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.

Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his  words so carefully.

Anyone who saw the news today, 12-14-2015, heard Obama say ISIL several times.

Great Work Coin

An ancient but venerable quote that is timeless:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
