Obama in a speech in Muslim Turkey today proclaimed "...our partnership with the Muslim world is critical ... in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject."
Obama conveys his "deep appreciation for the Islamic faith." He may as well express deep appreciation of Hitler, aids, and 9-11. His full statement: "We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country." Gack. Ya gotta be kiddn'. Barack, you mean especially lately, which pretty much is all that counts right now?
Obama misleads the world, especially us "infidels", about Islam in making this sort of statement. Islamic violence and quest for dominance is NOT a fringe ideology. It is at the heart of the Islamic faith. The Muslims who ignorantly cling to the passive nature of Islam and ignore its violent, supremacist core doctrines are the fringe ideology - the "apostate" Muslims as declared by the dominant body of Islamists in today's world.
Obama's national policies and defense of our national security will certainly fail if he cannot accurately identify the beliefs of the folks who have vowed to destroy our civilization. Connect the dots, Barack! See Robert Spencer's analysis of Obama's statement here for more insight.
Ironically, a few days prior to the President making his remarks, "Prime Minister [of Turkey] Recep Tayyip Erdoğan rejected attempts to call Turkey the representative of moderate Islam. "It is unacceptable for us to agree with such a definition. Turkey has never been a country to represent such a concept. Moreover, Islam cannot be classified as moderate or not."
Erdogan continued, making several false analogies between the "tolerance" of Muslim versus the tolerance of Christians, here.
