Obama held a “anti-terrorism summit” this week, and words and phrases like “Islam”, “Muslim”, and “Islamic extremism” were off-limits. Obama and his team have done all they can to refuse to acknowledge that most terroristic acts in the name of religion are being performed in the name of Allah and Mohammed
Obama Alone In Ignoring Roots Of Islamist Terror
Monday’s White House statement on ISIS’ beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya, which failed to mention the victims’ faith as the reason for their murder, was practically unique among world leaders’ reactions for its omission.
By contrast, Pope Francis on Sunday exclaimed that “they were killed simply for the fact that they were Christians,” and that “their blood confesses Christ.”
Even the official Twitter account of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a series of messages with the hashtag #ChristianLivesMatter.
Huh, how about that? Even Khamenei.
Islam says we should behave out of fairness& justice towards the followers of other religions. #ChristianLivesMatter #Libya#Letter4U

Well, in all fairness, Christians aren’t treated exactly great in Iran, either. Though, they haven’t mass killed them, and he notes that many were martyred for Iran in the war against Iraq. And Khamenei attempts some equivocation in further tweets, even noting the Chapel Hill murders (and getting it as wrong as Obama did). But, at least he notes who was killed and why. His tweets show he is not a big fan of ISIS, nor that ultra-extremist version of Islam. He prefers the regular radical version practiced in Iran.
Leaders all over the world have acknowledged the threat from radical Islam, particularly ISIS, as those who perform these barbaric acts in the name of Islam. Except for Team Obama and Obama himself. One really has to wonder about the motivations that cause Team O to avoid linking Islamic extremism with Islam.
Cue the deflections, distractions, and strawmen from Islamist apologists.
