Hmm . . . that's like saying "we are all right-handed except for left-handed folks."
It's obvious that Uncle Joe either has not read Islamic scripture, particularly the Koran, or he's pretending that Islam is just like Christianity. Maybe he believes the Koran is kidding when it says such things as:
"Then when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive) and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Sura 9:5)The above Sura is only one of the seven that Osama bin Laden quoted in his 1996 "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places." The other six are Suras: 3:145; 47:4; 2:154; 9:14; 47:19; and 8:72. It makes for interesting terrorist justification reading. Enjoy.
But Uncle Joe didn't stop there: "It's up to us--and you've been the leaders in this country--to recognize that fear, but also try to allay that fear, and to help people understand that what unites us is a lot more than what divides us. And it's embodied in just not what we believe but what we say."
Calling our vigilance of people who say they want to kill us makes it sound like we're crazy. Islamophobic. Racists.
First of all, it isn't crazy to be wary of people who clearly say and demonstrate their hatred for Western values. To not be vigilant and prepared to respond is crazy. To hear Islamic terrorist organizations such as ISIS say that they will be infiltrating the West among the immigrant population and then allow poorly vetted immigrants access to our country is crazy.
Second, a phobia is an irrational fear. There is nothing irrational about the fear that people have of the tenets of Islam. Again, read the Koran, Sira and Hadith.
Third, Islam is not a race but calling it a race works well for Islamic organizations that support Sharia law (Islamic law). The reason for using the term 'Islamophobia' is to shame the West into looking the other way when jihad is being prepared. That's exactly why the San Bernadino attack that killed 130 infidels was successful.
Uncle Joe continued: "All faiths have a version of these teachings and we all practice and preach that we should practice what we say. Opening doors to the victims of war, as the president has been trying to do--a war of terrorism and oppression. Accepting people of all faiths and respecting their right to practice their religion as they choose, or choose not to practice any religion. Resisting the urge to let our fears overcome what we value most--our openness, our freedom, and our freedom to practice our faith.
Then President Obama was introduced by Biden who said of Barack Hussein that he'd "never been with anyone who has more character than this man, and has faith."
Obama spoke about the recent "horrific acts of terrorism, most recently Brussels, as well as what happened in Pakistan [he pronounces it "Pahkeestahn"]--innocent families, mostly women and children, Christians and Muslims."
Obama failed to mention that although Muslims were killed in that Pakistan park, it was a Christian holiday and it was Christians who were targeted by Islamic terrorists.
"And as Joe mentioned, these attacks can foment fear and division. They can tempt us to cast out the stranger, strike out against those who don't look like us, or pray exactly as we do," Obama lectured. "And they can lead us to turn our backs on those who are most in need of help and refuge. That's the intent of the terrorists, is to weaken our faith, to weaken our best impulses, our better angels."
"If Easter means anything, it's that you don't have to be afraid."
Well Obama certainly isn't afraid with all the armed protection he has. His words are self-serving and aid in his quest to make America just another place where anyone can lay their hat, their burqa, or their sword.
He can try to shame us by saying the crap he does about folks who don't pray like we do, or look like us, but an ideology doesn't have a common look, but the one in question has an intolerance of us a hell of a lot more than we have of it.
Obama never speaks of the violence that Islam commands against lesbians, gays, Jews, Christians, and other groups. He uses moral equivalency where it simply doesn't exist.
People are finally waking up to the truth.
