Obama Defends Islam…Again
Obama wasn’t very far into his speech last night before he launched into a defense of Islam. First he said, ” Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not ‘Islamic.'”
Well, Mr. President, the first “I” in “ISIL” stands for “Islamic.” One hundred percent of its members are avowed Muslims. The one characteristic of every Westerner who has joined ISIL is that they were either born Muslim or converted to Islam. Practicing Baptists and Catholics need not apply.
Moreover, the first thing ISIL does when it conquers territory is impose Sharia or Islamic law, which they wouldn’t care about if they weren’t devout Muslims. Many Muslims bristle under Sharia law, but the imposition of Sharia is what ISIL members believe Allah demands of them.
Then Obama said this: “No religion condones the killing of innocents.” Obama needs to check his Koran and talk to Hussein bin Mahmoud. The Koran specifically calls for the smiting or killing of the infidel. And, Mr. President, if you are an infidel, according to fundamentalist Muslims, you’re not innocent.
It’s true that many Muslims disagree. But a 2013 Pew poll of just 11 Muslim countries found that 13% of the respondents supported Al Qaeda. That equates to approximately 100 million Muslims. For the president to act like Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and ISIL (ISIS) are part of a fringe conspiracy to smear a peaceful religion is ludicrous.
Obama noted that “the vast majority of victims have been Muslims.” Well, Mr. President, that’s the point. ISIL sees their Muslim victims as insufficiently committed to the faith, as apostates. The reason the overwhelming majority of victims have been Muslim is a matter of geography — ISIL operates in a predominately Muslim region . . . for now.
If ISIL, Hamas and Hezbollah ever get to Israel, the great majority of their victims will be Jews. On the morning of 9/11, whose anniversary we are marking today, the great majority of victims were Americans — Christians, Jews, members of other faiths and those with no faith.
Rather than going on TV to deny the obvious, our leaders, including George W. Bush, should be saying, “There is a war going on within Islam. The ascendant force within Islam wants to go back to its medieval roots of conquest. There is some resistance, but not nearly enough.”

My Opinion: There is a big war coming. It doesn’t matter if you want to get involved or not, you’re going to join the fight. Count on it. As long as Islam exists you will either convert, die, or fight for your life. You have no choice.
