Our Commander in Chief has finally settled on a policy for dealing with the rise of the Islamic State that he enabled by prematurely withdrawing our forces from Iraq. It consists of whitewashing Islam, comically denying that its most active adherents are Muslim, and mumbling lame platitudes:
After consulting with military leaders at the Pentagon [Monday] afternoon President Obama held a press conference on the growing threat of ISIS. President Obama declared the United States “will never be at war with Islam.” Obama also said, “ideologies are not defeated with guns but better ideas.”
“We’ll constantly reaffirm through words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam,” President Obama said Monday afternoon. “We are fighting terrorists who distort Islam and its victims are mostly Muslims.”
“This challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort,” the president said. “Ideologies are not defeated with guns but better ideas and more attracting and more compelling vision.”
Unfortunately the self-imposed decline personified by Obama is not a compelling vision, which is why the Middle East has turned away from Westernization and back into the blood-soaked darkness of Islam.
