Obama: Debate on radical Islam is political distraction
Obama spoke after his meeting with the US national security council [Al Jazeera]

US president responds to criticism of his administration for not using phrase ‘radical Islam’ as political taking point.

“The killer was an angry, disturbed, unstable, young man who became radicalised,” he said, adding that Islam had nothing to do with the attack.

“What exactly would using that label accomplish? What exactly would it change? Would it make ISIL less committed to trying to kill Americans? Would it bring in more allies? … The answer is: none of the above,” he said.

“Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. This is a political distraction.”

Imagine your doctor tells you that you have cancer, but then tells you ‘it doesn’t make a difference what we call it, you gonna die anyway.

  1. (Mu)barack Hussein Obama engages in Islamic obfuscation and dissimulation but also plain old western sleight of hand. In a nutshell he says the idea of suggesting Islam is inherently violent by generalizing from the minority of extremist Muslims to the majority of moderate Muslims is illogical. Well yes generalizing from the particular to the universal is an error under western logic but notice Obama’s switch. He subtly shifts the focus from Islam to Muslims and then after referring to the well acknowledged error he switches the conclusion back to Islam, i.e. suggests that one cannot draw any conclusions about Islam. Very sly. Of course one cannot make a conclusion about any particular Moslem but there is only one Islam and the question of generalizing from the particular to the universal in regards to Islam does not apply at all.

  2. So: “He became “radicalized!” (but not, somehow, by islam)!

    Nice try, Hussein!

    But I can smell the taqiyya on your breath from all the way up here in Canada!
