As far as President Barack Obama is concerned, the words "Muslim terrorists", "radical Islam" and "Muslim extremists" don't exist.
“No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama told a group of Muslim leaders at a summit held at the White House on Wednesday, the NY Post reports.
“No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama said during his speech.
Obama also refused to acknowledge the fact that the 21 Egyptian victims who were beheaded by a faction of ISIS in Egypt were Christians.
The barbaric acts prompted the Reverend Franklin Graham to ask “Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians?"
Obama spent much of his time at the podium extolling the virtues of Islam.
“Generations of Muslim immigrants came here and went to work as farmers and merchants and factory workers, helped to lay railroads and build up America,” he said.
“The first Islamic center in New York City was founded in the 1890s. America’s first mosque — this was an interesting fact — was in North Dakota.”
Obama also quoted the koran, saying "...we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam."
The president lashed out at media pundits who criticized “the words we use to describe and frame this challenge” -- a reference to the Obama administration's continued refusal to acknowledge Islam's tenuous link to violent extremism.
Ironically, the list of invitees to Obama's summit on violent extremism included the Imam of the Boston mosque where the Boston Marathon bombers were members.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall at their meeting behind closed doors, and out of earshot of reporters.
