In the wake of another American citizen’s vicious beheading at the hands of Islamic State terrorists, even more pressure is being placed on the Obama administration to develop a strategy to defeat the growing threat the powerful organization poses around the world.
“Like Jim Foley before him, Steve’s life stood in sharp contrast to those who have murdered him so brutally,” he said. “They make the absurd claim that they kill in the name of religion, but it was Steven, his friends say, who deeply loved the Islamic world.”
Obama continued, suggesting that ISIS has already failed to achieve its goal because Americans and freedom-loving individuals worldwide are repulsed by the use of such vile methods.
“We will not be intimidated,” he asserted. “Their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists.”
For many, however, his words are less than convincing. Actress Lori Loughlin, known best for her starring role in the sitcom ‘Full House,’ addressed the situation by sending Obama a clear message on Twitter.

I’m so sickened over Isis and their disgusting beheading of our American journalists & others. Praying in the name of Jesus — Candace Cameron Bure (@candacecbure) September 2, 2014
Loughlin’s request elicited various responses, most of which echoed her palpable frustration.

Plenty of other celebrities have weighed in on the ISIS crisis via the popular social media site in recent days, including ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Ron Perlman.
Make no mistake, #ISIL, you will be crushed. You lose by your very being. Your disregard for every living thing is pathetic. You are nothing
