Obama is certainly a non-interventionist when it comes to foreign policy.
Russia - Allow Putin to hang himself - their economy is tanking - lowest oil prices in over a year - sanctions are taking its toll on the big boys - food prices are increasing - they are scrambling to fine substitutes.

In the past 48 hours, the Islamic State has been attacked by: US Air Force, Kurdish Military, Syrian Air Force, and Hezbollah has taken them on the Lebanese border (spill over from Syria). Today, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia said they are the #1 enemy of Islam. Saudi Arabia has given Lebanon an...

But you are right, there are plenty of Muslims condemning ISIS for its actions.
