By BI: In the wake yet another attack (Brussels) in the increasingly frequent terrorist attacks by Muslims, the last thing we need is a lecture on “Islamophobia.” We need a Commander-in-Chief whose loyalties are to America, NOT Islam. Obama reiterated that it was important to avoid measures that might “stigmatize” Muslims…because as he keep reminding us, the Islamic State terrorists have nothing to do with Islam.
Breaking IsraelNews In his weekly media address, President Obama responded to the double attack in Brussels that left 31 dead and approximately 300 wounded. Two of the dead and 14 of the wounded were American citizens. The Islamic State (ISIS) took responsibility for the attack. Obama said that targeting Muslims would be “counterproductive.” (But Muslims targeting us? No problem)
“Muslims are our most important partners in the nation’s fight against those who would wage violent jihad. That’s why we have to reject any attempt to stigmatize Muslim-Americans (no, we don’t) , and their enormous contributions (name one) to our country and our way of life,”(major contribution to our way of life is trying to change our way of life to theirs)
Obama said. “Such attempts are contrary to our character, to our values, and to our history as a nation built around the idea of religious freedom. (Christians have little or no religious freedom in Muslim countries) It’s also counterproductive.” (Only if you refuse to call Islamic terrorism “Islamic terrorism”)
“It plays right into the hands of terrorists who want to turn us against one another — who need a reason to recruit more people to their hateful cause,” Obama added. Obama’s comments were in response to those by Republican candidates.
Donald Trump, whose well-known position on the issue has been the focus of much criticism, reiterated his demand for the government to temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the US. “We have to be very careful in the US, we have to be very vigilant as to who we let in this country,” he told Fox & Friends.
In 2000, 19 months before Sept. 11, 2001, Donald Trump wrote extensively of the terrorism threat the United States was facing. Trump went so far as to say that an attack on a major U.S. city was not just a probability, but an inevitability.
