Imam Obama defines Islam for Muslims


American Thinker

During Sunday’s address to the nation, President Obama went to bat for Islam, as he so often does.  It matters not when, where, or how he defends it.  His compulsion to advocate for the ideology he so adores is relentless.  If he shills for Islam immediately following an Islamic terror attack, no problem.  Perhaps he even enjoys it, like poking his finger in our eye.  His sickness knows no bounds.  And so, among other things, on Sunday he said:

ISIL does not speak for Islam. They’re thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. And they account for a tiny fraction of more than a billion Muslims around the world, including many patriotic Muslim Americans who reject their hateful ideology.

Well, um, actually, ISIS does speak for Islam.  As noted in an article by Pamela Geller at Breitbart this weekend, here are a few among countless little gems from the Quran:

Slay them wherever you come upon them.

If they fight you, slay them.

Fight those who believe not in Allah.

They shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall be alternately struck off.

They shall be banished from the land.

Cast into the unbelievers hearts, terror.

Lie in wait for them at every place of ambush.

When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them tie fast the bonds.

Take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah.

Please, Mr. Barry Soetoro, do tell us exactly how it is that ISIS does not speak for Islam.

“Lone Wolf” Terrorists are Not “Alone”

Family Security Matters

A “lone wolf” is still as much a predator as it would be in a pack. Its predatory, programmed instincts, behavior and actions are shared with those of a pack. It may be a “lone wolf” because of conflicts between it and the wolf pack. But it is still a wolf.

“Lone wolf” jihadists and terrorists, by the same token, are still Islamic supremacists. They need not be “soldiers” of any particular group, such as Hamas, ISIS, Hezbollah, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, or Al-Qaeda. They need not run with a pack. They need not have had any close or social contact with any of those groups, other than perhaps attending a mosque that preaches violent jihad against the West.

Many “lone wolf” terrorists are converts driven to “prove” their new religious convictions. Their “independence” of action may not even be approved by any of those groups, although their fascination with Islam may be fueled by what a “lone wolf” sees those groups approve of as seen on the Internet and in the MSM in the way of beheadings, dismemberment of victims’ bodies, rapes, and “random” killings. Not to mention the chest-beating claims by terrorists that Islam will rule the world. All this answers an element in a “lone wolf’s” makeup, a malevolent loneliness. He responds. He is not alone.
