    Hippie reckons the power of love will defeat ISIS.

    This delusional retard is the epitome of the FAR left loonies.

    This Portland Hippie Is Planning a ‘Peace Concert’ in ISIS-Controlled Syria
    James Twyman, ‘Peace Troubadour,’ is embarking on ‘the most important and dangerous peace mission’ of his life—to the Israel-Syria border and beyond, wielding his classical guitar.
    ISIS generally doesn’t respond well to music.

    But that isn’t stopping James Twyman, an author and musician based in Portland, Oregon, from planning a trip to ISIS-held territory in Syria later this month to help bring peace to the region through the power of a musical-prayer concert.

    “Performing the peace prayers in ISIS Controlled Syria will be the most important and dangerous peace mission of my life,” the self-described “Peace Troubadour” blogged last month.


    “Every peace mission I’ve been on has been dangerous, but this journey is without question the most perilous, and in my opinion—the most important,” Twyman wrote. “People everywhere are concerned about the escalating violence in the Middle East, especially with the rise of ISIS, but they don’t feel empowered to be part of the solution. That is what we are about to change.”

    Twyman, slinging his Cordoba classical guitar, is scheduled to fly out Jan. 20. He’ll first spend a weekend in Italy getting ready for the show, then will hop a flight to Tel Aviv to meet a handful of supporters and organizers. From there they’ll travel to the Israel-Syria border and set up their musical-prayer homebase in Majdal Shams, an Israeli-occupied Druze town in Syrian territory. (Twyman traveled to the same town in 2013 for a previous peace vigil for Syria.)

    “The people there are very anti-ISIS and anti-terrorism—it’s where we’ll set up our base of operations,” he told The Daily Beast.

    Twyman is aware of the kidnappings, the high-profile beheadings, the whole war, the State Department Syria travel warning, and all that jazz. He says that, despite his website’s bold phrasing, he is taking all necessary precautions for his potential ISIS-land gig.

    “People have this image of me walking into an ISIS village with a guitar on my back,” he said, chuckling. “That won’t be the case. The purpose of this is to get tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people praying. It’s not about me being a superstar idiot in Syria. At this point, we’re not sure how far we will go, but if people there feel they can get me into an ISIS area safely, and then out safely, then we will do just that…The idea is to sing, then get back to safety. We are hoping for something interesting, just not too interesting.”

    (ISIS-dominated territory in Syria is too dangerous even for Sylvester Stallone, so chances of Twyman venturing beyond the Israeli-controlled village are rather slim.)

    If Twyman’s fellow peace activists can’t get him into a place where he can perform for some people living under ISIS rule, his fallback plan is to play his set in a safe area “overlooking an ISIS-controlled area.” From there, he and his team will sing the Islamic prayer for peace, as the “Peace Troubadour” strums his acoustic guitar.

    Regardless of Twyman’s precise location, the mission is to rally as many people as possible, via the Internet, to simultaneously “focus our Affirmative Prayers on ISIS” in order to—miraculously, somehow, in unprecedented fashion—stem the bloodshed through divine intervention. (Godspeed.)

    You can't pander to them.. look what happened in the last world war with the Germs... appease and die..

    I'm all for being nice (when one can) but Sometimes you have to be strong to survive.. fight fire with fire, etc...

    I think he's taking the pee, because I assume he can't get a visa anyway.

    Or, he could do a sneaky across the border from Turkey, where he'll be apprehended and held hostage as a western tool, enemy, infidel, and spy before his head is separated from his neck.

    You really shouldn't say such nasty things about Mr Earl. With your online persona, you need all the friends you can get.

    Don't think, just read the article.
