A Message to President Obama from a former Muslim

If you want to hear pure logic and an educated list of facts that confirm ISIS represents pure Islam, this is the video to watch.

ISIS is not an aberration or perversion of Islam.  ISIS is Islam as taught by Muhammad and as expressed in the Qur’an.

You draw your own conclusions, after listening to this video, as to whether ISIS is totally Islamic.  Then ask yourself why anyone would attempt to convince us it is not.  What are their motives?

Promoting jobs for jihadists is like suggesting abstinence for addicts

Or even more to the point, the idea of economic  prosperity is exactly what the resurgent Islamic ideology is against.

Obama and his junior varsity State Department don’t get it.  They are stuck in a Westernized mindset.  They believe that health and wealth is a universal ideal.  They fail to appreciate the fact that in some ideologies at some points in time there arise other priorities.  At this time in Islamic history, as in most periods of its history since its founding, Muslims number one priority is to destroy the wealth of others.  And that priority does not include their desire to be smitten by job opportunities.

One of their principle recruiting mantras is the un-allahness of western wealth.  They have joined hands with leftists and Communists like Obama and the 99%-ers who find it more satisfying to destroy prosperity than participate in it.

The companion motivation is to portray themselves as defenders of the moral high ground.  They see the West and Christiandom as immoral and corrupt.  They point to our obsession with entertainment, our promotion of homosexuality, our pornographic media and related favorite pastimes of our culture as things greatly displeasing to allah.  That justifies to them their moral superiority and motivates them toward their holy war against us. 

They don’t have time for jobs.  The mere suggestion of “better jobs” to most of the jihadi types is like throwing gasoline on a fire.  It is an attack on their Islamic sensibilities.  Jobs and economic prosperity are the very things they are crusading against.

The evidence for this diagnosis lies not only in their doctrine and history of conquests through North Africa and Europe, but in their current reign of terror.  Their destruction of the World Trade Center was symbolic of their motivation:  destroy symbols of prosperity and economic wealth.

Image result for jobs for muslims

The latest demonstration against symbols of Western prosperity is al-Shabaab’s plan to attack the Mall of America located in Bloomington, MN, an urban suburb 8 miles south of Muslim-infested Minneapolis. These fine, job-seeking souls have published their intent in a video as described on FOX HERE.  And more from Pam Geller HERE and Front Page Magazine HERE.

This threat highlights the fact that our intelligence agencies have little clue as to who comes to our nation:

Jim Kallstrom, the former assistant director of the FBI’s New York office, said the FBI has a “huge job in front of them.

“You look at the Mall of America, you look at all the malls then you start to backtrack and say you know it would be nice if we knew what comes and goes into the country,” Kallstrom told Fox News on Sunday. “We don’t have a clue.”

These are not “job seekers” in Syria or Libya or Somalia.  These Muslims are located in one of the more prosperous urban areas in the United States.   And this location also happens to be one of the most heavily Muslimized regions in the US.  Given that the US Census is prohibited from counting people based on their religion (a deadly blind spot in our planning for attacks) estimates of Muslim populations in any US location is difficult as described by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis HERE.

The Mall of America employs 11,00 year round.     They have dozens of  job openings provided on THIS web site.  This does not include openings in individual stores.

But no. These jobs are not what Somalian Muslims of Minneapolis really want.  They want to destroy the jobs, the symbols of western decadence.  They have an agenda that does not match the agenda of the West.  They already have great, motivating jobs, thank you.  They have jobs that plot and deceive and destroy.

We are so damned prideful that we believe every other God forsaken culture in the world wants what we want.  False!  That strategy is causing us to waste billions of dollars and thousands of lives because it does not address the motivation of our enemies.  It only incites them to more acts of terror and carnage.

How about we worry about getting jobs for Americans who want them, and deport the Somalians who don’t.

Speaking of jobs for jihadists, below are State Department job applications that are just now starting to pour in – thanks to Tyler Durden at :

(If only they were this obvious.  But then again, the obvious doesn’t matter.)

Obama’s speech: Words of an Advocate and Deceiver for Islam…

Imagine this:  If Catholics or Presbyterians were responsible for 99% of worldwide terror, and members of that faith were an immanent threat to our national security, would we tolerate a political leader demanding that we refrain from judging or being critical of those religions.

Such a leader would be called an apologist, an advocate, and a fool.

And so Obama is.

Not one word about positive action we can take to identify and neutralize terror.  Only that we should accommodate them with our sweetness and light.

A fool.

Muslims in the US will most likely be offended by Obama’s words.  Why?  Because he is telling Muslims what not to believe that their religion clearly tells them to believe.  Half the Qur’an (the most relevant half) instructs Muslims to behave exactly how the “radicals” are behaving.  Obama is once more providing cover for a vile, aggressive, intolerant political ideology.

And the rest of us should be offended because our president continually inferred the American public is the cause of Islamic violence.

We know why Obama does what he does; but why does the electorate do what it does?

The vinyl fence in my back yard has a lot of mildew on it because most of it is in the shade of a good-sized Oak tree.  I finally found a product that easily eliminates that mildew.  Its label says it “attacks mildew at its roots.”

Apparently cleaners that DON’T attack the root don’t work as well or at all.

The same can be said about Obama’s failing Middle East and national security policies.  He views the problem as “work place violence” or “lone wolf attacks.”  He will use every trite label and excuse to avoid identifying the root cause.  Those sloppy characterizations of universal Islamic terror provide the basis for other erroneous conclusions.  For example, his State Department suggests lack of job opportunities as a root cause of ISIS recruitment success.  That might be true if the hate, attacks and terror were coming from a wide array of ideologies held by people equally pissed off at the lack of job opportunities.  But the hate, attacks and terror come from one single ideology:  Islam.  Our university-brainwashed State Department atheists cannot grasp the concept that there exists societies and belief systems that value other things higher than a good job and a middle income, consumption-driven lifestyle.  Middle East Muslims don’t fancy after the same things we do.  They might even be several generations away from appreciating the golden rule versus their favored “do unto others before they do unto you” mentality.

Retired Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden believes Obama is trapped by his own words on Islamic terror.  But the General falls short of the one essential ingredient that motivates Islamic terror:  Islamic doctrine.  It is not simply “radical Muslims” inventing their own doctrine apart from Islam.  It is orthodox, fundamental Islamic doctrine that they follow.  That is the root of the problem.

Islam is the common denominator; the root of the problem.  Yet Obama remains in denial.  The Atlantic monthly takes several pages to attempt to explain the reasons for Obama’s denial HERE.  I will explain in one sentence.

Obama was raised Muslim, went to Muslim schools, his father and many close relatives were Muslim, he attended a church for 20 years that favored Islam over Christianity and consequently his entire world view is formed by and based on his Muslim experience.

From Qur’an 3:185 aka “taqiyya”

Deception and defense of the faith are key aspects of Islam.  That is why Obama’s incessant and illogical denial that Islam has anything to do with rampant Islamic terror in the world is his mantra.

Many of us knew these traits of Obama a few years ago.  The more difficult question for me, today, after two elections and dozens of gaffs and missteps, is why do 50% of the electorate still  approve the job Obama is doing? (Both Gallup and Rasmussen as of February 17, 2015) 

Here is what I believe is the root of this problem:  Corrupted human nature.

Here is an example:

Assume two equally competent politicians (I know, I know – that’s a stretch, but bear with me for this example).  One is particularly skilled in schmoozing – he is full of charisma, but has a tendency to shade the facts to tell people what they would like to hear.  The other is particularly skilled at getting, understanding and explaining the facts and likely solutions, but is weak in the charisma department – but insists on telling of things the way they are.  Who will be the more successful politician?  “Cool” wins over “competence.”

That is what we have today and have had since humans roamed the earth.   The Obama/Romney race gave us a front row seat to that dichotomy.

This raises another, more fundamental question in my mind:  How did the human race survive as long as it has given our tendencies toward avoiding facts and truth and preferring lies and excuses?  The only thing that comes to mind is that the balancing forces of hormones, sex, and reproduction maintain our existence despite our predisposition to be liars and deceivers. 

That is a major reason why the Muslim birth rate has to be as high as it is.

There you have it – the root of the problem.

What it takes for Islam to be “moderate” in Jordan

On his flight back home from his visit with President Obama, Jordan’s King Abdullah ordered the hanging of two of Jordan's Muslim ISIS prisoners in retribution for the Muslim ISIS burning of one of Jordan’s captured pilots.  Jordan also upped its aerial bombing campaign against ISIS targets in Syria and possibly also in Iraq.

Jordan is predominantly Sunni Muslim, as is Syria.  ISIS is said to be a radicalized version of Wahhabism, itself a reform movement of Sunni Islam. It can also be said that ISIS is a purer form of Islam than that which is allowed to be practiced in Jordan.

The idea of Jordan bombing fellow Sunni Muslims in Syria, as well as a chunk of Jordan’s population being Palestinian who hold a grudge against Jordan for being too “pro-West”, caused me to wonder about Jordan’s future.

How does Jordan control its Muslim population?  How does Jordan prevent the “radicalization” – or, more accurately, the pure Islamification - of its Muslim population?

The answer:  By means similar to the way the Nazi’s controlled Christianity in Germany:  By buying off and controlling its clergy.

THIS ARTICLE in the Washington Post describes the types of rules Jordan’s government imposes on Muslim clerics.  The clerics are urged (required) to “preach moderate Islam” (what is that, really?) or else “you will not be let back in” [to the clergy].  Jordan prosecutes Islamic State recruiters and cracks down on anyone waving an Islamic State banner.

Jordan also has 60 monitors of its 5,500 mosques that hold Friday sermons.  Officials say they need 400 to do the job adequately.   From the article:

Specifically, Jordan is demanding that preachers refrain from any speech against King Abdullah II and the royal family, slander against leaders of neighboring Arab states, incitement against the United States and Europe, and sectarianism and support for jihad and extremist thought.

The reward for Muslims adhering to the new guidelines are:

  • government salaries of about $600 a month,
  • religious workshops,
  • travel assistance for pilgrimages to Mecca, and
  • weekly guidance.

This is great for the United States, and of course the US applauds this approach to maintain a moderate, if not false, Islam in Jordan.

More to the point, the aura of a “moderate Islam” can only be maintained through coercive state control.  Orthodox Islam does not like to be controlled and told how long its sermons should be or what its followers should think, say or do.

I will not be surprised if Jordan’s attempts to maintain a false “moderate Islam” fail by being overthrown by the orthodox wishes of its Sunni Muslim population – even within the year.  And I would not be surprised if in the background, the Obama administration facilitates that outcome as it has done in other Muslim countries where pure Islam was held in check.

Noteworthy is the fact that Christianized nations do not have to control Christians from being “radicalized” because radicalized Christianity is the polar opposite of a radicalized Islam.  Radical Christianity would promote a life of prayer, tolerance, forgiveness, peace, and giving of self for others.  Radical Muslims pray, true, but are intolerant, unforgiving, terrorists, and give of themselves by being human bombs to kill on behalf of an intolerant god.

Obama At National Prayer Breakfast: ’People Committed Terrible Deeds In The Name of Christ’

 …a moronic attempt at moral equivalency between Islam and Christianity

The above headline appeared on the Brietbart web site HERE with the article quoted in full below this commentary.

I’ve encountered similar claims mostly from liberals (occasionally by others) ignorant of Islam and its history.  They usually have an agenda against all religion or are defenders of Islam.

Here is my reaction to Obama’s comments:

Where to begin.

First, Obama is a disingenuous lying tool twisting facts and religion to suit his own purposes of defending and promoting Islam.

Second, the Crusades he referred to BEGAN AFTER 400 years of Islamic persecution, attacks, and conquests.  Christians of the day observed a huge amount of patience and restraint.  Even then, there were a fraction of counterattacks carried out by Christians compared to the number of initial Islamic attacks and conquests. (Check out the video at the end of this blog.)

Third, Islam has immutably built into its religious/ideological/political texts commands of hate, superiority, intolerance and conquest. What Muslims are known for today (jihad, terror and intolerance of other faiths) is their practice of ORTHODOX Islam, the manner in which Muslim leaders and followers have been practicing what Muhammad practiced and taught since its inception 600 years after Christ.

Here is one current example from Newsmax…

ISIS has established a near-impregnable base of support within Iraq and Syria with spectacular appeal to many of the world's Sunni Muslims, according to a new analysis relying on dozens of interviews with jihadists and U.S. military experts. The group uses certain texts and in-house clerics to provide religious justification for their violence, particularly a book called "The Management of Savagery," which argues that overwhelming brutality is a useful tool in confronting the United States. [Full Story]


"These beliefs are not on the margins -- they are absolutely mainstream. They are preached by mosques across the world, particularly in the Middle East.”

From the new book "ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror"


Any violence Christians have practiced in the name of Christ has been either random outlier events counter to the orthodox teachings of Christianity, or were performed in a relatively brief period of history to defend their existence following 400 years of Muslim attacks and conquest.

Do Christians say and do things because “God told them to?”  Of course they do.  But the history of what Muslims have done and what Christians have done in the names of their respective religions are starkly different.  What is more significant is what each religion’s texts, orthodoxies, and leaders say they should or should not do.

Why would Obama attempt this comparison?  To defend Islam, of course.  His second “slip of the tongue” concerning as he put it a few years ago, “my Muslim faith”, occurred during the prayer breakfast when he said,

“We are summoned to push back against those who would distort OUR RELIGION for their nihilistic ends.”

The “our religion” that he feels summoned to push back to defend is Islam.

Bottom line:  In Islam, violence, intolerance, jihad, terror, and conquest are orthodox - the norm - throughout its history.  In Christianity these behaviors are the exception throughout its history.
Obama is a jackass trying to portray the beliefs of these religions in terms of moral equivalents. They are morally opposite belief systems.

It is heartening to see the huge number of comments to this article on the Breitbart web site who recognize Obamas attempts at moral equivalency and Christian bashing.

Here is the Breitbart article in full:

At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by Christians as well.

Obama said that even though religion is a source for good around the world, there will always be people willing to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends.”

“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Obama also denounced Islamic State terrorists for professing to stand up for Islam when they were actually “betraying it.”

“We see ISIL, a brutal vicious death cult that in the name of religion carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism,” he said criticizing them for “claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.”

For those wanting a refresher on the sequence of events surrounding the Crusades, take 45 minutes to view this video by Bill Warner showing exactly what led up to the long overdue response of Christians in the face of 400 years of Islamic conquest.  His website is

The Southern Poverty Law Center: A hate group demonizing patriotism and family values

I knew the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was left wing, but I didn’t know how far left.  With such a noble sounding name – its words ringing with goodness:  Southern, that’s wholesome and down home.  Coupled with Poverty, it becomes Southern Poverty.  That’s noble.  They try  to overcome poverty in the south.  Law Center:  What can be more upstanding than a “law center.”  Drum roll introducing lawyer jokes.  Well, the first two words are warm and fuzzy.

 Beware of a name.

What does the Southern Poverty Law Center do?  Under its “What We Do” heading, they have these titles, with my subtitle in parentheses:

  • Children at Risk (criminal justice system is too tough on delinquents)
  • Hate and Extremism (any group or individual they disagree with)
  • Immigrant Justice (open the borders and let the taxpayers pay)
  • LGBT Rights (2000 years of Christian morality is “hate.”)
  • Teaching Tolerance (anything goes except what they disagree with)

Let’s just say that the overarching philosophy of the SPLC is just like other left wing groups:  Permissive and tolerant toward what it agrees with and hateful and intolerant of things it does not agree with. 

Just as the ACLU occasionally but rarely defends conservative principles, the SPLC lists several categories of legitimate hate groups such as white and black supremacist groups.  But the great majority of listings of hate groups or persons include those in the following categories:

  • Those legitimately expressing facts about Islam and the threat it poses
  • Those who uphold Biblical principles of morality, especially those dealing with homosexual behavior.
  • Those who are opposed to being overrun by illegals.
  • Those who are more patriotic than they are.

Here are several examples of organizations the SPLC cites as “Hate Groups” as listed on their web site:

America's Promise Ministries

Ideology: Christian Identity

America's Promise Ministry is both a Christian Identity church and a major publisher and distributor of right-wing extremist tracts.

American Border Patrol/American Patrol

Ideology: Anti-Immigrant

American Border Patrol/American Patrol is one of the most virulent anti-immigrant groups around. On the American Patrol website and in self-produced videos, the group rails against Mexican immigrants, accusing them of bringing to the U.S. crime, drugs and squalor and of practicing “immigration via the birth canal.”

American Family Association

Ideology: Anti-LGBT

The American Family Association (AFA) says it promotes "traditional moral values" in media. A large part of that work involves "combating the homosexual agenda" through various means, including publicizing companies that have pro-gay policies and organizing boycotts against them.

California Coalition for Immigration Reform

Ideology: Anti-Immigrant

Claiming an unlikely 26,000 members, the California Coalition for Immigration Reform (CCIR) is headed by Barbara Coe, an angry woman who consistently refers to Mexican immigrants as "savages." CCIR publishes a newsletter, produces DVDs, and links to many other anti-immigrant hate groups.

Family Research Council

Ideology: Anti-LGBT

The Family Research Council (FRC) bills itself as “the leading voice for the family in our nation’s halls of power,” but its real specialty is defaming gays and lesbians.

Federation for American Immigration Reform

Ideology: Anti-Immigrant

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is a group with one mission: to severely limit immigration into the United States. Although FAIR maintains a veneer of legitimacy that has allowed its principals to testify in Congress and lobby the federal government, this veneer hides much ugliness.


Ideology: Patriot Movement

WorldNetDaily is an online publication founded and run by Joseph Farah that claims to pursue truth, justice and liberty. But in fact, its pages are devoted to manipulative fear-mongering and outright fabrications designed to further the paranoid, gay-hating, conspiratorial and apocalyptic visions of Farah and his hand-picked contributors from the fringes of the far-right and fundamentalist worlds.

The SPLC is quick to label as a “hate group”  and slander any group that does not fit its leftist, socialist, anti-Christian, and anti-patriotism agenda.  In fact, under its listing of Florida hate groups, it lists a ministry of Fort Lauderdale’s Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church as a hate group because it promotes Biblical values – or from SPLC’s perspective, is anti-gay.  “Truth in Action Ministries” has since changed its name to D. James Kennedy Ministries.

The Southern Poverty Law Center lists what it calls Anti-Muslim Hate Groups.  All of the listed groups provide facts about Islam that are ignored by our government and most media but are slandered in SPLC’s depiction.

Here are listed profiles of individuals who the SPLC believes are haters because of the information they provide about Islam:

Even the mild-mannered Dr. Ben Carson made the SPLC’s “hater” list – but pressure forced the leftist amoral SPLC to recant.

Click on any of these names to see what SPLC has to say about them.

I feel slighted.  They left me off their list.  I’ll have to work on that.

This is the politics of slander.  Slander whichever individuals or groups that do not represent your point of view with words like “bigot”, “Islamophobe”, “homophobe”, “hate group”, or “patriot group.”  The winning entry of the slander name game is “Christian Identity”.  Those who overtly practice their Christianity will be slandered with the hate group name of “Christian Identity.”

And this is just the beginning.

For Washington Times and Breitbart comments on the SPLC, click HERE and HERE.

Bottom line:  The Southern Poverty Law Center is itself a hate group and an awesome fund raising machine.

Obama claims 99.9% of Muslims reject terrorists understanding of Islam–and 99.9% of pigs fly

                          Obama has perfected Islamic practice of deception…

Nothing – absolutely nothing could be further from the truth than this Islamic deception from Obama.  This is a lie that, if believed, will destroy our freedoms.

As long as we’re throwing percentages around, here is a much more realistic assessment:


Belief or action


10% Are jihadists or are jihadists-in-waiting with a predisposition to carry out violent acts when an opportunity or excuse (insult) arises to do so


50% Are sympathizers to the cause and will demonstrate and provide political, financial, logistic or other support to the cause of jihad (advancing Islam by whatever means necessary.)


40% Are either “nominal” or “cultural” Muslims, most of whom would likely stand with their Muslim brothers should the political winds shift in an ugly direction, just as Obama said he would do.


Numbers are based on existence of 1.6 billion Muslims in the world.  A higher percentage of US Muslims may fall  in the “nominal” or “cultural” category, or not.  In fact, US Muslims may be more inclined to take offense at the perceived slights by US culture which they believe is an insult to Islam, Allah, or Muhammad, and thus violently react to it.


Any of the above categories may be comprised of what the media calls “moderate” Muslims (when they may in fact be sympathetic to jihad)  because of the deception (taqiyya) ingrained in the Islamic culture.

How did I come up with the above numbers?  Certainly by a more transparent and rational method than what Obama used to come up with his.

Islamic experts suggest that 7% to 15% of Muslims are “radicalized” aka, practicing Islam as Muhammad intended and as the Islamic trilogy (Islamic “holy” books comprised of the Qur’an, Hadith, Sira) teaches.  It isn’t a stretch at all to believe that at least 10% of those who claim a particular faith actually practice what it teaches.  And historic, orthodox Islam teaches what the radicals do.

Half of the Qur’an and Hadith (the abrogating or dominant hate and violence portions) must be ignored for there to be a truly moderate “Zuhdi Jasser-type of Muslim”, which just about all Islamic leaders consider to constitute apostasy.  Zudhi Jasser’s view of Islam is equivalent to Unitarian’s view of Christianity:  Both leave out substantial portions of the orthodox beliefs.

We seldom if ever hear Muslim leaders promote freedom of expression or condemn Islamic violence.  In fact, the great majority of Islamic leaders condemn freedom of speech and cheer Islamic jihad.

Tens or hundreds of thousands of Muslims turn out to cheer Islamic violence and condemn freedom of expression. 

Muslims commit acts of terror (violenet jihad) more often than every other religion and political ideology COMBINED.  The web site “The Religion of Peace” documents Islamic acts of jihad HERE.  

Even those Muslims thought to be “moderate” condemn freedom of expression (expressing a negative opinion about Islam or any other relgion or political ideology.)  The outrage of many will be expressed either through demonstrations or violence.  Robert Spencer gives examples of Muslim rage against the European pro-Charlie Hebdo demonstrations, HERE.

For an expert view of Obama’s outrageous and dangerously misleading claims about Muslim predisposition to violent jihad,Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer’s comments on the subject are included in full below.  This is taken from his Jihad Watch website.


Obama: “Overwhelming majority of Muslims reject” jihadists’ view of Islam

by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer

obama muslim

President Dawah is out there dissembling, proselytizing and spreading Islam as the global jihad rages on.

The idea that Obama would pull a number — “99.9% of all Muslims” — out of a hat speaks to what a dangerous dissembler this infiltrator is. As if saying something so outlandish would make it so.

According to a pew poll, 75% of Muslims worldwide want sharia for the family issues including divorce and property disputes. 75% also want amputation and death for apostates in places like South Asia. 94% of Muslims in Afghanistan want sharia, 70% of Egyptians and 76% of “Palestinians” want stoning and hand chopping, etc. 40% of Muslims in the UK want sharia and 25% of Muslims in the USA think suicide bombing is okay.

While the jihad rages in the cause of Islam across Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Russia and China, Obama insists, “a rose is not a rose” or “Islam is not Islamic.”

President Taqiyya. The thing is, this isn’t 2001, and the people aren’t buying it. We’ve have 14 years of endless war, whining and whacking. It is what it is. JIhad.

“Obama: “Overwhelming majority of Muslims reject” jihadists’ view of Islam,” thanks to Robert Spencer

99.9% of Muslims, Obama says, reject the terrorists’ understanding of Islam. That still leaves 1.3 million jihadis or jihad sympathizers, but never mind that for now — where is this 99.9%? Where are the Muslim organizations that are dedicated to working against the jihadists? Where are the Muslim marches and protests against al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, and all the hijackers of Islam? We have seen many protests lately by Muslims against the latest Muhammad cartoons in Charlie Hebdo. Where are the Muslim protests against the killing of the cartoonists and in support of the freedom of speech? Why is this 99.9% so silent and passive in the face of this “hijacking” of their religion?

“Obama says terrorists not motivated by true Islam,” by Dave Boyer, The Washington Times, February 1, 2015:

Criticized for avoiding the phrase “Islamic extremism,” President Obama said he doesn’t want to alienate the majority of peace-loving Muslims as the U.S. fights to defeat terrorist networks around the world.

“I think that for us to be successful in fighting this scourge, it’s very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we’re looking for: order, peace, prosperity,” Mr. Obama said on CNN. “And so I don’t quibble with labels.”

The president also said he doesn’t want to “overinflate” the importance of terrorist groups by sending U.S. troops to occupy countries in the Middle East or by “playing whack-a-mole” against terrorist leaders because it drains America’s financial strength….

“I think we all recognize that this is a particular problem that has roots in Muslim communities, and that the Middle East and South Asia are sort of ground zero for us needing to win back hearts and minds, particularly when it comes to young people,” Mr. Obama said. “But I think we do ourselves a disservice in this fight if we are not taking into account the fact that the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject this ideology. I reject a notion that somehow that creates a religious war, because the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject that interpretation of Islam.”
