Many people have accused President Barack Obama of being an Islamist and expressing sympathy and support for those who promote and perpetuate radical Islamic ideology. Obviously, his supporters would deny such charges, but his own history of statements regarding Islam leave very few other explanations.
Now, Obama is justifying those accusations against him even more, as he appears to be taking the opposite position regarding Islam than those the moderates calling for reform and modernization of the religion, according to the Daily Caller.
Egyptian President General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt in 2012, recently stood up in front of a collection of influential Imams and clerics to denounce radical Islam and call for the movement’s reform.
Sisi said it was outrageous that so many Muslims would want to kill people of other religions, in order to promote their own, and called such thinking outdated, saying, “It’s antagonizing the entire world!”
“You need to step outside of yourselves to be able to observe it and reflect on it from a more enlightened perspective. … 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 [Muslim community] is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost — and it is being lost by our own hands.”
While much of the Western world is commending Sisi for his brave words and clarion call for a long overdue overhaul of the Muslim religion, Obama has been conspicuously absent from those voices.
Instead, Obama, and his sycophants in the administration and the media, continue to push the tired narrative that “Islam is a religion of peace” while refusing to admit or name radical Islamic terrorism as the greatest extremist threat facing the world today.
Obama continues to host people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in his own administration, leading some to criticize him while questioning his grasp on reality.
“This is either madness or cowardice,” Newt Gingrich said. “It could be madness because President Obama and his team are so out of touch with reality that they see themselves as the definers of a 1,500-year-old religion.”
“It could be cowardice because our national elite in both parties … is afraid to face the reality that millions of people around the world, many of them motivated by religion, hate the West and want sincerely to destroy it,” he added.
As was previously noted, Obama has wholeheartedly expressed his support for the Muslim Brotherhood, especially when they seized power in Egypt following the Arab Spring.
However, the new moderate Egyptian government under Sisi has named the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and has banned them from the large Muslim nation, along with their progeny, Hamas.
While Sisi, and a handful of other moderate Muslims around the world, are standing up to the ruthlessly radical Islamic fundamentalists and pushing to modernize their religion, America’s president supports those who would gladly slaughter Christians, Jews, and other Muslims, while keeping their Muslim society stuck in the 7th century.
