Rick Santorum Makes ISIS’ Enemies List

This month, the Islamic State’s monthly English-language magazine, The Dabiq, quoted three so-called American “crusaders,” including 2016 presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

The item, titled, “In the Words of the Enemy” also featured “Virginia state Sen. Richard Black and former CIA officer and author Gary Berntsen, who are all quoted at length in the article on their various warnings about the group’s abilities to expand its caliphate.”

Santorum, who’s a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania and the runner-up in the 2012 Republican presidential primary election, has been speaking at length in speeches and appearances about the ISIS threat and the need to “bomb ISIS back to the seventh century.”

The Dabiq article quoted the 56-year-old “Catholic crusader” as asserting that strong action needs to be taken by the U.S. and its allies to eliminate the group, or else ISIS will continue to grow.

In fact, Santorum was a guest today on Breitbart News Daily, discussing the very same topic: Rick Santorum: World War III Has Started.

“We will not start World War III by taking out (Iran’s) nuclear capability. We will stop WWIII. WWIII is underway in the world today. Everybody needs to understand that. WWIII has started and unless we short circuit it, it’s going to explode into a real global conflict,” Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum warns on Breitbart News Daily.

As pointed out by The Christian Post, Santorum’s knowledge and depth of understanding of radical Sialm seems to exceed many of his contemporaries as he points out the significance of their holding land.

“This caliphate that has been established and that means they are calling people from all over the world to come and fight this battle. As long as they hold ground and continue to expand that ground, more and more will come,” Santorum is quoted as saying. “The fact that we are delaying means that the caliphate continues to exist. They are not losing ground. They are not being discredited in the eyes of the Muslim world. They will get stronger.”

Also, as Santorum pointed out in his Breitbart interview, not on ISIS’s enemies list – Barack Obama, at least not this iteration, it seems.

The article adds that Santorum warned that ISIS is “dead serious” about its desire to expand beyond the borders of its strongholds in Iraq and Syria, which has already started to happen with the terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria pledging allegiance to ISIS and militant groups in Libya and Egypt doing the same.

“This is really important to understand. The reason the West had a thousand year war with Islam is that Islam was ever expanding. When Islam began to contract, it collapsed, and the caliphate was eliminated. Now they have established a caliphate. They are dead serious about expanding it,” Santorum explained. “Unless we begin to take back that ground and make this caliphate just irrelevant in the eyes of the radical Muslim world, we are going to have a bigger and bigger problem.”
