Once again, because of the small mentality of so many in the media, President Obama found himself today explaining the obvious, that ISIS or ISIL and Islam are different and that America is not fighting Islam. “We are not at war with Islam,” the president said.
Calling it a “recruiting tool” used by ISIS when they falsely say that America is at war with Islam, the president stated that “we must never accept the premise that they put forward, because it is a lie!”
He continued: “Nor should we grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek! They are not religious leaders, they’re terrorists!”
Yes, there are many people out there working in the media who needed to hear this distinction, and instead of spending their time covering the important stories and the terrorist activities of groups like ISIS, these so-called journalists and pundits spend a sickening amount of time confused and wondering if America is at war with Islam!
But now that the president has clarified this distinction, are these people going to move on and cover the real news? I strongly doubt that!
