Barack Obama continues to be in a deep state of denial with regard to the basic nature of ISIS and Islam, despite recent decapitations and horrendous stories of murder and mayhem from Iraq and Syria.
As reported at the reference:
In his prime-time speech to the nation on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Obama vowed to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria with air strikes and 475 U.S. boots on the ground – but he also made a particular point of declaring that the Islamic State terrorists “are not Islamic.”
“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”
One is reminded of other Obama administration declarations which have proven completely false, such as “The war on terror is over,” and Joe Biden’s outrageous view that the Iraq war is one of “the great achievements of the Obama administration.”
Such attitudes are particularly dangerous when dealing with ISIS, which has been described by Defense Secretary Hagel as “beyond just a terrorist group” and “beyond anything that we’ve seen.”
Just who in the hell does Obama think these ISIS thugs are? A gaggle of wayward Catholic boys? Or confused Jewish killers?
Clearly, Mr. President, ISIS killers are Islamic, through and through!
It was Obama’s refusal to accept the truth about Islam that led to his foolish withdrawal from Iraq which has led to the creation of the monster known as ISIS.
Given the fact that Obama is still charmed by memories of the evening “calls to prayer” by Muslims, it is clear that he is incapable of objective and intelligent judgment.
The United States Congress must confront the President and encourage him to step down.
The stakes are too high to leave the war on ISIS in the hands of a Muslim sympathizer!
