President Barack Obama has come under a lot of fire throughout his time in office for refusing to say “radical Islamic terrorism” even after a brutal terror attack.
Many Republicans say that Obama’s refusal to say those words just prolongs the war on terror because he won’t properly identify the enemy.
Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of one of the founders of Hamas, agreed with Republicans, saying that Obama insisting Islam is a religion of peace makes the perfect breeding ground for terror, CNS News reports.
“When the president of the free world stands and says that Islam is a religion of peace, he creates the climate, he provides the climate, the perfect climate to create more terrorism,” said Yousef, who turned against Hamas in 1996.
Yousef said that refusing to admit the connection between terrorism and radical Islam may create so many terrorists that the problem will never go away.
“There is an Islamic problem, and I think humanity needs to stand against this danger because this danger is not only against the state of Israel, this danger is against the evolvement (sic) of mankind,” he explained.
“What is the alternative for Israel and for democracy or for the American Constitution?” he asked. “It’s the darkness of the sixth century. This is what’s the alternative.”
It’s a sad day when a former member of a terror organization makes more sense than the actual president of the United States.
If we don’t have a leader who recognizes that we are fighting a war for our own freedom and very existence, then we are in serious trouble. We may not be able to handle four more years of a leader who refuses to acknowledge what needs to be done to bring peace.
