CIA top dog: Jihad terror groups “are driven by this ideology that is not rooted in Islam”

So what’s the name of this ideology? And since jihad is, according to Obama plant John Brennan, a “legitimate tenet of Islam”, what exactly drives the jihadists?

One of Brennan’s statements is missing: “the majesty of the hajj”. He said it.

Brennan said that “princes, presidents, and prime ministers throughout the Middle East” were “outraged that their community, the Muslim community, has been affected by this cancer – individuals who have this distorted and very perverted interpretation of Islam that pursue these psychopathic agendas of horrific violence. They recognize that they have a very important role, the leading role, to help purge their communities of these influences.”

Great. When are they going to start? And why haven’t they done so already? Why is there not a single mosque or Islamic school that has a program dedicated to teaching young Muslims why they should reject the understanding of Islam offered by the Islamic State and al-Qaeda?

“Well people can take any faith, the Jewish faith, the Christian faith, and distort it and use it for violent agendas, and we’ve seen through the course of history that individuals who think that they are the vanguard of the effort of Christianity or Judaism or even Hinduism or other religions really have distorted interpretation of their faith, and the overwhelming majority, the 99.9 percent of Muslims, do not support that type of violent agenda.”

Why, then, do we not see Jewish, Christian, or Hindu groups committing acts of violence and pointing to their scriptures to justify those actions? Why is it only Muslims? Why have there been over 29,000 terror attacks worldwide since 9/11 committed in the name of Islam and jihad, and none in the name of Judaism, Christianity or Hinduism?

And where does Brennan get the idea that 99.9% of Muslims reject “that type of violent agenda?” Surveys show that 51% of Muslims in the United States support Sharia and 60% are more loyal to Islam than to the U.S., and that overwhelming numbers of Muslims in Muslim countries support Sharia. Sharia mandates warfare against and subjugation of unbelievers.

Brennan is just spreading the same nonsense that everyone in the administration spreads. Constant repetition may make more people believe it, but will not make it true.

“CIA Director: Terrorist Groups ‘Are Driven by This Ideology That Is Not Rooted in Islam,’” by Lauretta Brown, CNS News, September 29, 2016:

(CNSNews.com) – CIA Director John Brennan said Wednesday “words or comments that taint a religion as being the source of the problem” are “detrimental to our interests” in dealing with the Muslim world….

Brennan spoke with the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg Wednesday and was asked about the impact of incendiary remarks about Islam in political discourse.

“Words and comments that taint a religion as being the source of the problem, I think, is tremendously detrimental to our interests and to a better understanding of this phenomenon,” Brennan said.

Brennan said that he has met with “princes, presidents, and prime ministers throughout the Middle East,” that are “outraged that their community, the Muslim community, has been affected by this cancer – individuals who have this distorted and very perverted interpretation of Islam that pursue these psychopathic agendas of horrific violence.”

“They recognize that they have a very important role, the leading role, to help purge their communities of these influences,” he added. “These individuals who are fanatics, extremists and terrorists, they are driven by this ideology that is not rooted in Islam. It’s a psychopathic ideology that is very absolutist that either you’re with us or against us.”

Brennan added that remarks characterizing Islam as the problem do not “help to arrest this cancer that has taken over so many of the communities, because of a lot of the underlying conditions that exist within the Middle East and Africa, South Asia areas because of economic deprivation, political disenfranchisement, lack of opportunity.

“These terrorist organizations and this perverted version of religion preys upon their sense of hopelessness and by making comments that are incendiary and are viewed as attacking a religion or a people or a community only further drive those individuals to grasp onto those extremist views,” he explained.

Goldberg followed up pointing out that some people would respond that “these are Muslims who are citing scripture who are seemingly devout people, who have broad support in parts of the Muslim world, and so it doesn’t add up when you say this has nothing to do with Islam. It looks like a form of Islam.”

“What’s the response to that?” he asked Brennan.

“Well people can take any faith, the Jewish faith, the Christian faith, and distort it and use it for violent agendas,” Brennan replied, “and we’ve seen through the course of history that individuals who think that they are the vanguard of the effort of Christianity or Judaism or even Hinduism or other religions really have distorted interpretation of their faith, and the overwhelming majority, the 99.9 percent of Muslims, do not support that type of violent agenda.”

Here some more delusional stuff that gives hope…

…..but then finishes with “Only by approaching the religion’s tenets with a new spirit of inquiry can we ever disentangle the Islamic faith from the Islamism that is a metastasizing threat to human rights around the world,” she said. A disappointing finish.

Yeah. I’d like to see the disentanglers get to work.

Mr. President,” she responded rhetorically, “you don’t know who you’re fighting because you don’t know who or what you’re dealing with.”

“You don’t see a monster for what it is because it tells you it isn’t a monster. Or, to carry the metaphor further, because it tells you there’s no such thing as monsters,” she added.

She also came down hard on the “obsession with stamping out the public’s ‘Islamophobia,’” which would move Islam from a religion into a protected racial or biological context. Islam is a religion, she contended, and thus must be open to criticism.

The doctrines of Islam and its political systems, Qudosi noted, “must be lampooned and mocked and derided—not because they are all deserving of such treatment, but because ideas that we are not permitted to attack are the ideas that control us.”

“Only by approaching the religion’s tenets with a new spirit of inquiry can we ever disentangle the Islamic faith from the Islamism that is a metastasizing threat to human rights around the world,” she said.
