We have an Attorney General who said her "greatest fear" was that massacres by Muslims would spark an anti-Muslim backlash. Less concern for that than the scores killed by Islamic terrorists.
Now, Obama in an Oval Office speech to the nation on Sunday spent more time talking about an anti-Muslim backlash and gun control (despite the FACT that the CA killers were NOT on any terror or gun watch list. Neither were any other Muslim killers in the U.S.) than he did about defeating ISIS.
Is Obama and his Attorney General even aware of the government's own statistics from the FBI on hate crimes which show the vast majority were directed at Jews, not Muslims? Have you ever heard Obama or the Attorney General make preventing those attacks a top priority?
Religious biasOnce again, Obama shows a complete indifference to the REAL PROBLEM and no grasp of any coherent strategy to deal with the problem of Islamic terrorism.
Of the 1,340 victims of an anti-religious hate crime:
62.4 percent were victims of an offender’s anti-Jewish bias.
11.6 percent were victims of an anti-Islamic bias.
7.5 percent were victims of a bias against groups of individuals of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group).
6.4 percent were victims of an anti-Catholic bias.
2.6 percent were victims of an anti-Protestant bias.
0.9 percent were victims of an anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.
8.6 percent were victims of a bias against other religions (anti-other religion). (Based on Table 1.)
The speech Obama should have given is a version of the one delivered by the President of Egypt to Islamic scholars in January. Yet Obama went out of his way to distance himself from Egypt's President Al-Sisi when the Egyptian people overthrew the radical Muslim Brotherhood government. Al Sisis said:
I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move… because this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.Why is that message so difficult for Obama to embrace? Do we not want the help of Muslims to defeat terrorists? Why can't Obama enunciate the danger and take steps to counter it? Obama's speech Sunday offered nothing new on strategy. Just more of the same. And how's that working out?
Whose side is Obama on?
