The Obama administration’s recent move to drop rhetorical references to Islamic radicalism is drawing fire in a new report warning the decision ignores the role religion can play in motivating terrorists.
Several prominent counterterror experts are challenging the administration’s shift in its recently unveiled National Security Strategy, saying the terror threat should be defined in order to fight it.
The question of how to frame the conflict against Al Qaeda and other terrorists poses a knotty problem. The U.S. is trying to mend fences with Muslim communities while toughening its strikes against militant groups.
In the report, scheduled to be released this week, counterterrorism experts from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy argue that the U.S. could clearly articulate the threat from radical Islamic extremists “without denigrating the Islamic religion in any way.”
….Obama has argued that words matter, and administration officials have said that the use of inflammatory descriptions linking Islam to the terror threat feed the enemy’s propaganda and may alienate moderate Muslims in the U.S.
What “moderate muslims”?? Where the fuck are they?? That’s like insisting there are “moderate Nazis”, moderate communists”, “moderate socialists”, or “moderate anarchists”. Enemy propaganda gets a boost every time Obama opens his pie hole. Gawd forbid we should “denigrate” Islam by calling it exactly what it is: a violent, jihad-based “religion” responsible for millions of deaths in the name of “allah”. The muslims who follow Islam are carrying out the violence proscribed in the Koran.
None of this should surprise anyone. For years, even as an ACORN “community organizer” in Chicago, he professed his allegiance to muslims and their philosophy. All of Obama’s ass-kissing won’t persuade muslims from inflicting terrorism; it just lends encouragement.
No one in their right mind would modify policy to lend aid and comfort to the enemy. If these terrorists were Catholic, Protestant, Pentacostal, Baptist, or any other Western-based religion, Obama would have no trouble with labels and appropriate terms.
He’s either the most ignorant dolt on the planet, or he’s deliberately undermining the security of the United States. I not only question his intelligence, I question his motives.
