    Arab governments agree to act against IS!

    CAIRO: Arab foreign ministers agreed Sunday to jointly act against extremist groups, particularly the Islamic State (IS), but did not state their possible coordination with the US, a media report said.

    At a meeting in Cairo on Sunday, the ministers agreed to cooperate to deny the extremist group any sort of access to financial support or political concessions, Xinhua reported.

    They also called on Arab states that are not yet members of "The Arab Convention on the Suppression of Terrorism" to join the effort as quickly as possible, calling for national and regional strategies against terrorism.

    Reports prior to the meeting said that the Arab states would agree to coordinate with the US in containing the IS, which controls large parts of Syria and Iraq. But the meeting fell short of clearly adopting any stance in such cooperation.

    Meanwhile, Jordan Sunday said it's not part of any coalition of battling the IS and will still just keep talking about it.....

    Jordan's minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said Jordan will continue to coordinate with all countries on how to face terrorism and terrorist organizations.

    Earlier on Saturday, the US said it was building a coalition to battle the threat from the extremist group Islamic State. Speaking at the Nato summit in Wales, US President Barack Obama said a "core coalition" is formed to tackle the IS threat, and Washington would destroy the group, just as it had gone after al-Qaida.

    I think the "possible coordination" with the USA is a bad idea. They need to act as a separate, independent force. It will give their actions far more weight politically IMO.

    Don't believe they have much of a choice, as it is not a voluntary or altruistic action.

    For once, it would be nice to see the nominally Islamic states get together to clean up their own shit.....


    .....and if they happen to slaughter a few foreign jihadists, like, from as a random example, UK- I would certainly give them a pass.....

    The beauty of Isis is that the biggest short term threat is to the Islamic states (Shiite excepted). Can I smirk a bit?

    The Syrian free army , that wanted to overthrow the nice guy Assad and his not free army.
    David Cameron wanted to help them exactly one year ago by using the RAF to help bomb them to victory, like same same Libya 4 years ago, a success story, create another Libya.
    Now this Syrian free army (brilliant propaganda name ) has metamorphosised into ISIS
