    Obama refuses to acknowledge ‘Muslim terrorists’ at summit

    WASHINGTON — They’re burning and beheading victims in the name of Islam, but President Obama delivered a major speech Wednesday on combating violent extremism — while refusing to use the words “Muslim terrorists.”



    “No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama told a crowd that included Muslim community leaders at the White House.

    Re: Obama refuses to acknowledge ‘Muslim terrorists’ at summit

    Yeah, well when you've got three Muslim students (completely peaceful, wonderful human beings by all accounts) murdered and a lot of the media attention has portrayed it as a hate crime, it's not a surprise that our President is trying to emphasize the fact that the worst human beings in the world aren't valid representatives of a religion that millions of Americans believe in. From Obama:

    "They try to portray themselves as religious leaders, holy warriors in defense of Islam," he said. "We must never accept the premise that they put forward because it is a lie. Nor should we grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek. They are not religious leaders. They are terrorists."
    I love repeating the fact that Obama is just a figurehead, which I completely believe, so I don't really care one way or the other. But I think that spinning the White House's refusal to come out and say "see this brutality? This is what Muslims do" into "Obama refuses to admit that Islamic extremism motivates ISIS" is completely garbage. It's a lie. But it's being repeated often enough that I won't be surprised if it becomes the truth in the the near future.

    There's nothing here, no story, move on people!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I have heard about the atheist that killed those muslims-tragic. However this was a "summit" on terrorism, and he couldn't even put the words together, according to the article the world Islam wasn't even said once.

    Thats a problem, we can't win the war on terror if POTUS wont admit where the problem lies.

    He's not wrong.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I know you must THINK that this makes Obama look bad, but if you weren't wearing your little partisan blinders you'd see that what you just quoted him as saying here is in accord with what most reasonable people on the planet believe.

    Are you seriously saying that by Obama using the word "Muslim", ISIS will suddenly be defeated?

    I know it's hard for you to grasp, but what Obama is doing is denying them legitimacy, they derive their authority from their religion, by not acknowledging that, he's taking away a chunk of propaganda they might otherwise be able to utilise. It has no ill effect on the US, military strategy is not dependent upon the use of one word by one person, and it harms ISIS.

    Im saying we have a leader who wont dare utter the problem. His PC spin prevents this.

    This was a terror summit, after over a year of ISIS beheadings and he can't even say the words. What a lion of a President he is!
