Rabies is directly relevant to animals and so to the RSPCA, ISIS is in no way directly relevant to students and so to the NUS. Seriously, do you think every organization should come out and officially condemn ISIS? Can you not see how ludicrous that is?

Is directly target students, and it is within the NUS remit to consider issues affecting students. Including radicalisation of students by militant groups. Seriously how is it not related?
It is faintly ludicrous that the NUS thinks their condemnation, or lack thereof, has any actual relevance in the real world. And condemning, or not, the US airstrikes has no actual effect on student radicalisation.
What might have some success in tackling student radicalisation is the Prevent strategy and the new counter-extremism policies promulgated by universities. As it happens, both of those elements are being pursued in the teeth of vicious opposition from the NUS
The NUS is a joke. Their motion condemning gay men for "acting like black women" simply underlines how farcical and detached from reality they are
