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.
