US and Russia to present UN Security Council resolution to choke off ISIS’ financing

The United Nations and Russia will jointly present a resolution tomorrow to the United Nations that will expand terror sanctions to ISIS and give countries more flexibility to target the extremists’ financing.

The current sanctions regime applies to Al Qaeda and its direct affiliates but not ISIS, an offshoot of the group.

‘What we’ll be doing is elevating ISIL and putting it on that same level and turning those tools and that same experience that we’ve built up internationally against ISIL,’ the acting Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, Adam Szubin, said today.


Well. Now that the UN is involved it’s all over for ISIS.

    Wow – now ISIS/ISIL/Daesh are doomed – the same UN that allowed Arafat to wear a pistol when he addressed the UN, voted that Zionism = Racism and allows the leader of Sudan (who has an arrest warrant in his name for War Crimes) to speak is going to go after ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.

    Going to the “united nations” to present a resolution to expand terror sanctions is like going to an isis barbershop for a haircut and a shave. Chances are you’re gonna have your throat cut.
    By the time this resolution is passed it will be so watered down that even isis will approve.

      They’ll amend it, striking out ISIS and inserting Israel.

  • This could have been done long ago – if we had a president with a set of balls and who wasn’t a Muslim.
