‘Islamic coalition against terrorism’: Saudi Arabia presents 34-state military block

WEB Notes: 34 Middle Eastern and African nations have now locked arms against the banner of “terrorism”. The article would state 65 nations are involved in the fight against terrorism with less than a dozen militarily involved in the fight against ISIS. Everyone is continuing to build around the lie called ISIS. This is a unification of the world. From what we have seen in the last several months I am sure we can expect to see more groups come together under various banners and causes.

Apple fails yet again: $123B vanishes

Apple (AAPL) shares are falling hard yet again Monday – dipping below $110 for the first time since October – marking the latest failure for the stock and a new push toward its lows.

Shares of Apple Monday closed down 70 cents, or 0.6%, to $112.48 as concerns mount over slipping smartphones sales as the market matures. The stock fell as much as 3% to $109.79 earlier in the days before recovering. But the damage has been done. Shares of the gadget maker have been disappointing despite investors’ high hopes its gadgets would be hot sellers during the holidays.

Obama’s ‘ISIL czar’ has long history tackling Mideast crises

President Barack Obama’s new “ISIL czar,” Robert Malley, has a long and sometimes controversial history at the center of U.S. policymaking in the Middle East. He’s now taking on one of the toughest jobs in Washington: getting the struggling campaign against Islamic State militants on track while Obama refuses to entertain any wholesale strategy change.

Nearly 25 years after they were students together at Harvard Law School, these days Obama and Malley cross paths mostly in the Situation Room, where Malley’s role is to ensure the countless U.S. agencies fighting IS work in tandem despite differing time zones, capabilities, and even views about the conflict. At stake is an extremist threat that has started exporting violence from Syria and Iraq deep into the West, raising fears that the U.S. is losing a battle that Obama concedes will still be raging when he leaves office.
