Winds of Jihad: More from the people who called the Muslim Brotherhood “largely secular…”

CIA Director John Brennan at an event Friday warned against ascribing “Islamic legitimacy” to the overseas terrorist group, saying that allowing them to identify themselves with Islam does a disservice to Muslims around the world.” The fallacious assumption here is that Muslims around the world are looking to non-Muslims in the West to show them what is legitimately Islamic and what isn’t. That is simply not the case. The “best of people” (Qur’an 3:110) don’t derive their legitimacy from the opinions of the “most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6).

“CIA director on ISIS: They aren’t Muslims – they’re ‘psychopathic thugs,’” by Reena Flores, CBS News, March 13, 2015:

Call them “psychopathic thugs” or “murderers,” but don’t call the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) Muslims…

How about calling both Muslims and psychopathic thugs?

    “How about calling both Muslims and psychopathic thugs?”

    I wonder if that is not increasingly redundant. Of course not all… But there seems to be an upwards trend.

    • Obama is a Muslim.

    • Minicapt

      The Thuggees would object.

    article states “Obama apparatchik John Brennan is a Muslim convert”
    first time i have read he “is” a convert
    therefore Brennan is a Muslim?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      What’s good enough for Obama is good enough for Brennan.

      • mauser 98

        yes …would like to see more re that Brennan is a Muslim

    • Frau Katze

      That’s just the blogger’s opinion. He’s exaggerating… The blog tends to be kind of flippant. I might stop linking to it, since it seems to halfway between satire and news, which a strange situation.

  • BillyHW

    Brennan is a demon-possessed muslim.

  • “How about calling both Muslims and psychopathic thugs?” – I second that proposal. Moreover, I’d say they are psychopathic thugs because they are Muslims. Islam is a mentally-deranging doctrine.
