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.

I would have to take exception to every point you just made. There are bad actors of every religion including christians. Unfortunately the radical factions of Islam have a very large pool of young muslim adolescents and teens who don’t have a whole lot to live for, to prey upon. Afghanstan is one of the poorest countries on the planet. Given the living conditions in much of the middle east it is not a great stretch to understand how it can be easy to demonize the west and the U.S. in particular. That said, the idea that president Obama is any less of a ‘patriot’ or loves this country any less than ‘John McCain’ or any other ‘republican’ (because republicans love their country more than democrats) is ridiculous to me.
The “bad-acting” Christians haven’t killed anybody in what, 500 years? The last time that happened, it was in response to the brutal muslim Ottoman empire.
The muslims, on the other hand, are simply carrying on the precepts laid down in the Koran by an 7th Century Islamic zealot.
The notion that the youth of Afghanistan “don’t have a whole lot to live for” is a lame excuse best left for the apologists, not anyone who knows better. The Nazis and Communists used the same type of indocrination (Hitler Youth, Soviet Komsomol) with their young. Are you going to apply the same excuse to them?
As for Obama, anyone who exhibits the outright hostility to partiotism, the Constitution, and American citizens can hardly be called a “patriot”. Have you actually paid attention to his background, words, and actions?
READ for yourself:
15% “funemployment”, billions in taxpayer-funded bailouts, hostile government takeovers of private industry and banks, and trashing of the free-market system. And you call that “patriotic”? Obama and the Dem regime are implementing a governmental ownership of the means of production and distribution of our economy. (ie “wealth redistribution”) In the political lexicon, it’s called the creation of a Socialist State.
The Dems have a lengthy history of undermining the security and economy of this nation. FDR was one of the biggest socialist disasters ever produced.
During his regime, the top tax rates were 91% on personal income and 95% on corporations. this prolonged the Great Depression by decades and confiscated the wealth of the working class and investment class alike. He declared that no one in America should be allowed to earn over $25,000 annually. His “New Deal” was one of the original “wealth redistribution” tactics. It severely curbed investers from expanding their businesses, or investing in the stock market.
You’ll note that the politicians who espouse socialism do so from the postion of wealth and power. They don’t suffer the same effects of government control and power grabs as the population. They will get the medical care they can afford to pay for, regardless. The rest of us will be subjected to the ObamaCare rationing of the death panels. “Socialism for thee but not for me”.
You think my assertion about the Dems lack of patriotism is “ridiculous”? Study the facts. If Dems love this country so much, why are they trying to destroy it? They trample the Constitution, bad mouth constituents for speaking out, and ram despicable legislation through Congress without the consent of the American people. The’ve removed language like “Islamic” and “muslim” from the counter-terrorism strategy, even though those very words describe the enemy. Obama kowtows to every malefactor on the planet; he bows to Saudi kings, and smiles like an idiot through lectures given by Central American despots.
During my lifetime, and during my Army career in particular, I witessed some of the most visceral hatred on the part of Dems toward this country and the military. Dick Durbin stood on the floor of the Senate and compared us to nazis. Nancy Pelosi advised against “glorifying” our success in Iraq. John Murtha called us “murderers”. Cynthia McKinney: “The entire ‘Saving Private Lynch in Iraq’ episode was staged by the US military”. Patty Murray: “bin Laden builds day-care facilities…we haven’t done that”. Obama said that all we do in Afghanistan is “air-raid villages and kill civilians”. That rhetoric is rife with lies and hatespeech. Janet Napolitano thinks Iraq war vets like me are a bigger “threat” than the Islamic extremist cells operating within our own borders. They despise this country.
But don’t dare question their “patriotism”.
