Re: World Is At War
President Obama refuses to refer to ISIL, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Quds Force, and others as Islamic terrorists. He tends to mischaracterize the attacks by the radical Islamic terrorists on Christians, Jews, and other non-Muslims, and he seems hesitant to
vigorously take the fight to the terrorists. Why is that?
Our President referred to the attack on a Paris Jewish deli by saying "attackers randomly shot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris." In fact the victims were sought out, shot and killed because they were Jews. In response to the beheading of the 21 Coptic Christians the White House said they were "Egyptian citizens," and then stated ISIL attacks are "unconstrained by faith, sect or ethnicity." This rhetoric seems to be designed to downplay the seriousness of Islamic terrorist attacks and avoid offending Muslims.
The Obama administration talks about creating economic opportunities and jobs in the Islamic world as a cure for Islamic extremism.
How can this work, when radical Islamic ideology states Islam is the only true religion and non-Muslims have to convert, or pay tribute or be killed?
The world is at war with the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism.
