كلنا معاذ is trending, we are all Moaz.

As is #NotOurWar, which I beg to differ on. Your money funding terrorism = your war.

I want to hashtag #YesYourWar, can we get that trending?

How much military capacity does Jordan have, anyway? They've been involved in the air campaigns, but can they be a serious threat to ISIS at all?

They have a large enough force to occupy Syria but not the money. I'm curious to see how the rhetoric is going to translate into action.

Apparently the YPG/J are deliberately preventing ISIS units from fleeing villages in the Kobani countryside. 

 

You can't run and you can't hide.

Really wish Kanye would visit there. He's known for his boldness after all.

There is allegedly a ton of ISIS movement happening. Withdrawing from Aleppo and the Kobani countryside. My guess is they are going to consolidate between ar-Raqqa, Deir az-Zour, and Mosul. Big sign of weakness. 

 

Also significant, Sh. al-Maqdisi helped negotiate with al-Adnani to try and free Moaz and will be speaking about it on Jordanian tv. This is the second attempt for Maqdisi at negotiating with ISIS. Both fruitless.

Nobody knows how to deal with terrorism better than Bibi Netanyahu though amirite? 

 

It also looks like US hostage Kayla Mueller might have been killed in a Jordanian airstrike.
