Homeland Security Chief: We won’t call Chattanooga ‘Islamic terrorism’ out of respect for Muslims

The Right Scoop

 

Why won’t the Obama administration call Fort Hood Islamic Terrorism? Why aren’t they calling Chattanooga Islamic Terrorism? Because it’s disrespect to Muslims and Islam is about peace:

ARUTZ SHEVA – Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced the policy this past Friday at Aspen Institute’s annual security forum in Washington, D.C. He explained that though it was a Muslim terrorist who shot to death four unarmed Marines in Tennessee two weeks ago, the government will call the attack, and other similar ones, “violent extremism” and not “Islamic terrorism” – out of respect for the Muslim community.

Johnson said it is “critical” to refrain from the “Islamic” label in order to “build trust” among Muslims.

The Tennessee murderer, Mohammad Abdulazeez, is officially a “homegrown violent extremist,” according to the government – even though he blogged about his Islamic religious motivations for the attack. He and his family also attended a local mosque controlled by a terror-tied Islamic trust.

Johnson explained that if officials called Islamic terrorism “Islamic,” they’d “get nowhere” in gaining the “cooperation” of the Muslim community.

The moderator of the panel tried to protest: “Isn’t [the] government denying the fundamental religious component of this kind of extremism by not using the word Islamic?”

“I could not disagree more,” Johnson responded, and explained that Islam “is about peace.”

So if we say we want Muslims to stand up against Islamic extremism but we won’t call it Islamic extremism, how will they know it’s Islamic extremism if we won’t even tell the truth about it?

Heck, it’s not even extremism, really. It is simply Muslims taking their religion very, very seriously and trying to walk in the footsteps of Muhammad. Now there is an extreme component to it, as some believe the time is now to wage Jihad and others believe that time will come when their Mahdi returns. But that’s just a matter of ‘when’, not ‘what’.

But hey, let’s not offend Muslims here by telling the truth about Islam. Let’s just pretend Jihadis are just a bunch of angry poor people who can’t get jobs in their countries. And let’s send them money to see if that fixes the problem.

Good plan.

Obama would have called the 9-11 attacks “workplace violence”

Flopping Aces

What does it take before we’re allowed to call domestic Islamic terrorism what it is?

When James Foley was beheaded by a Muslim somewhere in the “Levant” the Obama administration called it a “terrorist attack against our country.” They called it a “barbaric act.”

When a woman is beheaded by a Muslim in Oklahoma the Obama administration calls it “workplace violence.” It seems that the alleged killer, a convert to Islam, was merely carrying out the dictates of the Quran.

Republicans Overturn Obama Decision To Deny Honors And Benefits To The Victims Of Fort Hood Terrorist Attack

Terrorist Attack

Weasel Zippers

Finally, for the long suffering families.

Has Benghazi hero Glen Doherty’s family not received his benefits and insurance for the same absurd reason?

Via IJR:

Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee will overturn one consequence of Obama’s unwillingness to recognize the terrorism of the Fort Hood attack: victims will be eligible for the Purple Heart, allowing survivors to receive better and prompter health care from the VA. More than that, every victim will get the recognition and honor due to them.

From KCEN-TV:
“I applaud the Members of the committee for their leadership in approving this important piece of legislation for Fort Hood and the surrounding community,” said Sen. Cornyn. “The 2009 Fort Hood victims should be eligible for all the honors and benefits available to U.S. troops who fall victim to an international terrorist attack, especially Purple Heart medals, and this would make that a reality.”

“Nearly five years have passed since the horrible tragedy at Fort Hood took the lives of 13 innocent Americans,” said Congressman Williams. “It is beyond comprehension why the current Administration has labeled this gruesome terrorist attack “workplace violence,” leaving the victims and their families without the benefits, treatment and honor they earned and deserve. This provision in the NDAA would restore the full range of deserved benefits for the victims. Though justice cannot bring back those we lost, justice can be served for the killed and injured troops whose brave actions prevented further bloodshed.

This comes at the same time that the administration is defending itself against charges that decisions were made in the Benghazi attack were animated by the same impulse – to protect Obama instead of protecting Americans.

 

 

Obama’s National Security Fraud

Family Security Matters

Unlike you, federal government officials are immune from charges of fraud.  The executive branch, vested with all of the government’s prosecutorial  authority and discretion, is not going to investigate its own operatives for  carrying out its own mendacious policies.

That is the story of last week’s Boston Marathon bombing and the frantic  efforts of the bombers, the brothers Tsarnaev, to evade capture, shoot it out  with police (one of whom they killed, and another of whom they wounded), and –  we’re now told – detonate more bombs in Times Square.

What ever happened to Nidal Hasan? And what is Education Diplomacy?

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks why ‘mass-murdering enemy of America is still breathing’

Hasan-283x275[1]WND: Are you one of those Americans who wonders what happened to the Islamist terrorist who massacred U.S. soldiers at Fort Hood more than three years ago?

Or maybe you’re one of those Americans who assumes Maj. Nidal Hasan long ago assumed room temperature after being summarily executed for murdering 13 and wounding more than 32, while screaming “Allahu Akbar,” or “Allah is greatest.”

There hasn’t been much news on the case. The Big Media would obviously like Americans to forget about this case. The government would like you to forget about it, too. In fact, Attorney General Eric Holder declined to press terrorism charges against Hasan, inexplicably labeling the worst terrorist attack in America since 9/11 as a case of “workplace violence.”

As a result of this callous, politically motivated and criminally devious decision, the victims of Hasan’s shooting spree will not be entitled to the benefits of soldiers wounded or killed in the line of duty.

There is some news on the Nidal Hasan front.

Mark Levin on Newtown speech: ‘How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood?’

The Daily Caller

On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin was critical of  President Barack Obama’s Sunday address regarding the heartbreaking Newtown,  Conn., shooting deaths of 20 children and six adult victims.

Obama’s address, Levin said, omited any mention of the November 2009 shooting  at Fort Hood, Texas — which killed 13 and wounded 29 others.
