Obama Decides that ISIS Does not Speak for Islam

Obama, who is sure the “peace process” will make Hamas safe for democracy, now has crowned himself an expert on radical Islam.
Obama may not be the best golfer in the world, but he thinks he is smart enough to know who speaks for Islam. expert on Islam.

Obama may not be the best golfer in the world, but he thinks he is smart enough to know who speaks for Islam. expert on Islam.

President Barack Obama has pontificated that the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) does not speak for Islam.

ISIS “speaks for no religion,” said the President, who doubles as de facto Secretary of Islamic Defense.

How does he know ISIS does not speak for Islam? He explains, “Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.”

America’s expert on religion apparently never learned about the Crusades, nor does he know that leading Christian leaders justify killing homosexuals because they are deemed a threat to Christianity.

“ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings,” Obama continued, taking time off from his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard to explain that ISIS’s radical Islamic ideology is “bankrupt,” an implied assumption that bankrupt ideology does not speak for anyone.

Perhaps Hitler did not speak for Germans?

Responding to the ISIS’s beheading of American photojournalist James Foley, President Obama continued, “ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant while ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria. The aims and objectives of ISIS/ISIL are clear – establish an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East and eventually a global caliphate. That global caliphate includes The White House. This means purifying Islam. Those Muslims who are deemed insufficiently Muslim will be killed….

“One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.”

What constitutes someone speaking for a religion? There are no lack of usurpers who challenge the authority of Judaism and Christianity. Each faith has many sects that are not recognized by each other, but who, except for Obama, decides what religious leader speaks for Judaism or Christianity.

The answer, outside of the Vatican and Israel where religion and state are intertwined as a matter of self-survival, lies in valid surveys.

A 9/11/13 Pew Survey revealed that a “median of 57% across the 11 Muslim publics surveyed hold an unfavorable view” of Al Qaeda. That is a polite way of saying that 43 percent of Muslim dis not state an unfavorable view of the terrorist network.

A Gallup poll in 2008 stated that 36.6 percent of the world’s approximately 1.8 Muslims partially, totally, or in some way justified the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

In numbers, that means approximately 600,000,000 Muslims are roaming the world with radical Islamic views.

Not all of them, and perhaps a small minority of them, are ISIS enthusiasts. Many more are big on Al Qaeda, Taliban, Hezbollah the Army of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood and its offspring Hamas.

If the definition of ISIS radicalism is beheading and establishing an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East, these groups are not far apart, unless Obama preaches that their ideology is no less bankrupt than suicide bombers who blow up women and children, and Hamas executions who shoot people in the head and the back, drag their bodies in the street and cart off body parts of Israel soldiers as souvenirs or booty for ransom.

  6. Somehow, I never pictured Obama as the Grande Mufti? Silly me…. He’s wrong as burnt toast, but he still is not head of Islam, goofy as he is claiming to be Pharaoh, Messiah, etc. Nuts is more the case.

  7. He’ll soon be gone and then you can get a real president.

  8. No offence though,i strongly believe onething about obama-he is bookish!ultra-idealist!He thought he could make over the world in one-term tenure alone.It is simple,he might have thought at the beghining of his first term,i should be fair to the ayatollahs and their leashed dogs(hamas and hisbolla) and now isis!When isis showed him their respect to him by beheading an innocent american journalist obama was firced to act:he went out to play golf.He is a bad influence to reality and common sense.

  9. l’m very sorry for USA, Europe and other western world who open their gates to Islamic immigrants from Asia and Africa. Very soon they’ll be torns in your flesh. They ‘ll soon take over you governments. If care is not taken, soon islamic extremmists ‘ll become president of USA, prime minister of Uk or even king of England and Fresh president. That is the Islamic agenda and they’re almost achieving it. “World caliphate”. They’re now multipling in alarming rate. “Neo Arab invasion”

  26. Obama’s judgement is terribly flawed and dangerous. He has been such a disappointment to me.

    The US should respond by setting up the Sovereign Federation Nation Sttae of Kurdistan , which would entail , dismembering the sponsor of ISIS which is Turkey. Turkey is a state sponsor of Terrorism and ISIS. Kurdish War effort against ISIS would be helped greatly with US , Canadian and EU sanctions on Turkey, assisting the Kurds of BAKUR Kurdistan in Turkey to separate and succeed themselves from the Turkish State NOW. http://www.todayszaman.com/_kilicdaroglu-says-erdogans-support-of-is-to-boomerang-on-turkey_356227.html
