Obama’s rhetoric ducks Islam reality – Even terrorists point to religion as their motivation

Could this argument be any dumber?

The Obama administration has forced America and much of the world into a debate no one wanted or needed. Namely, does Islamic terrorism have anything to do with Islam?

This debate is different than the much-coveted “national conversation on race” that politicians so often call for (usually as a way to duck having it), because that is a conversation at least some people want. The White House doesn’t want a conversation about Islam and terrorism.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says, “We have chosen not to use that label [of radical Islam] because it doesn’t seem to accurately describe what happened.”

What happened was the slaughter last week at the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The sound of the terrorists’ gunfire was punctuated by shouts of “Allahu akbar!” and “We have avenged the prophet Muhammad!”

Since no one questions the sincerity of these declarations, that alone should settle the issue of whether Islam had anything to do with the attack. And for normal people it would.

    There’s no escaping the reality that Islam makes every Muslim a potential vigilante.
    Obama is in the business of deception. Why?

  • Since Obama’s father is a Moslem, then by Islamic law (Sharia) he IS a Moslem. Once a Moslem, always a Moslem – it is not possible to leave that religion, and besides Obama has never tried to. Moreover, Obama was brought up as a Moslem in Indonesian madrassas (Koranic schools). What more evidence does anyone need to know that the Trojan Horse is already well inside the city walls, and the USA has its first Moslem president in office? Is it any wonder that all his national and foreign policies are, somehow, “incidentally” if not directly, pro-Islam?

      No, no. He gave up Islam, and they understand. The new Islam has no issue with apostates. 😉

    • I am still betting we will know once he is out of office.

    Especially since these are the people who reflexively blame the faults of any one Jew on all Jews living, dead or not yet born…

    • They are the religion of perpetual victimhood and grievance, they need it given the sorry state their nations are in.

    Same problem ISIS presents; too much, too fast, too openly.
