Barack Obama is concerned that you, dear Americans, might “turn on Islam.”
Muslim terrorists have been killing Americans with regularity going back to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, continuing through 9/11, the Boston Massacre, Fort Hood, the Beltway Sniper, San Bernardino and many other attacks in between.
Obama isn’t lecturing Muslims to stop attacks on Americans. Instead, he’s lecturing the victims not to retaliate, not to think mean thoughts about the perpetrators, not to show any signs of what he likes to call Islamophobia.
He said, in his weekly address to the nation last weekend, Americans should not turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam, because that’s what ISIS wants, because that attitude will undermine national security.
“Terrorists like ISIL are trying to divide us along lines of religion and background,” he said. “That’s how they stoke fear. That’s how they recruit. And just as Muslims around the world have to keep rejecting any twisted interpretation of Islam, all of us have to reject bigotry – in all its forms. I’ll say it again, prejudice and discrimination helps ISIL and it undermines our national security.”
Not only is Obama not taking the fight in any meaningful way to ISIS, he’s blaming the victims here at home for being angry and scared about the attacks.
Why is he being so condescending to Americans like this?
Americans have been taking in the shorts from Islamic terrorists for more than 20 years, and they show no signs of going vigilante. There’s no evidence of “hate crimes” being perpetrated against Muslims in America, which is astonishing when you think about what we have endured. Yet, Americans are lectured constantly about their predilection toward bigotry.
How about some attention directed toward the Muslim world and its tolerance of, if not direct support for, terrorism as a means to an end?
Instead, let me tell you some of the statements Obama has made about Islam in recent years:
- “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.”
While Obama has been sucking up to Islam for all these years, maybe it’s time to ask the following questions:
How has the Islamic world responded to all the flattery, adulation, obsequiousness, boot-licking and appeasement?
Could it be that Obama’s see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil approach toward Islam just isn’t working?
While Obama warns Americans not to turn on Islam, is it possible he hasn’t noticed Islam has turned on us?
