Dems: Trump shouldn’t fight “Islamic extremism” only, that will offend Muslims

Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer, February 4, 2017:

“Such a move is wrongheaded insofar as persons who commit acts of violent extremism are inspired by diverse political, religious and philosophical beliefs, and are not limited to any single population or region.”

In reality, there have been over 30,000 murderous jihad terror attacks worldwide since 9/11. What other political, religious and philosophical beliefs have been responsible for any comparable number? A widely publicized study purporting to show that “right-wing extremists” have killed more people in the U.S. than Islamic jihadis, and thus pose a greater threat, has been debunked on many grounds.

“Changing the name to ‘Countering Islamic Extremism’ or ‘Countering Radical Islamic Extremism’ would have damaging effects to our national security by feeding into the propaganda created by terrorist groups and child domestic and international diplomatic relations. Additionally, it could further alienate and create distrust with the Muslim-American communities when the program depends on close cooperation with law enforcement.”

Islamic jihadis routinely cite the texts and teachings of Islam to justify their actions and make recruits among peaceful Muslims. The idea that Muslims who reject jihad terror will be enraged if the U.S. government takes note of this is absurd. If they reject jihad terror, they won’t embrace it because officials are saying things they don’t like; in fact, if they really reject it, they should welcome and cooperate with efforts to identify its causes and eradicate them. These Congressmen are recommending that we curtail our speech to avoid criticizing Islam, which is a Sharia blasphemy provision that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has been trying to foist upon the U.S. by means of “hate speech” laws for years. That the statements of Thompson, Engel and Conyers are simply today’s conventional wisdom is one indication of how successful these efforts have been.

“Dems: Trump ‘wrongheaded’ on Islamic extremism,” by Mark Hensch, The Hill, February 3, 2017:

A trio of House Democrats say President Trump is making a mistake pushing for counter-extremism efforts to focus only on radical Islam.

The Trump administration is reportedly pushing to reshape a government program aimed at combating extremist ideologies to focus solely on the Islamic variety.

“Such a move is wrongheaded insofar as persons who commit acts of violent extremism are inspired by diverse political, religious and philosophical beliefs, and are not limited to any single population or region,” the three lawmakers wrote in a Friday letter to Acting Attorney General Dana Boente.

“Changing the name to ‘Countering Islamic Extremism’ or ‘Countering Radical Islamic Extremism’ would have damaging effects to our national security by feeding into the propaganda created by terrorist groups and child domestic and international diplomatic relations,” they added.“Additionally, it could further alienate and create distrust with the Muslim-American communities when the program depends on close cooperation with law enforcement.”

Friday’s letter was signed Democratic Reps. Bennie Thompson (Md.), Eliot Engel (N.Y.) and John Conyers (Mich.)….

  1. BULL SHIT! What we say, think, or do regarding Islamic jihadist will not make any difference.
    The Muslim – Islamic jihadist hate us, the Western civilization just because our beliefs do not
    compare to theirs and that they are sworn to their god and prophet to destroy any that will not
    submit to their belief system of faith, politics and law of Sharia. It is simple them or us to the end
    of time. This war started thousands of years ago and will continue until one or the other no
    longer exist. Period

    • Mr. Whittaker you are correct! Democratic Reps. Bennie Thompson (Md.), Eliot Engel (N.Y.) and John Conyers (Mich.) are only several examples of the The Red-Green Axis, the collaborative partnership between the Muslim Brotherhood and the hard Left that enables it! Any of these useful idiots/apologists who provides support of any kind to the insidious aspects of the stealthy, subversive activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and their front organizations such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), et al. needs to be charged and investigated for treason. Former President Obama and all the anti-American members of his administration need to be included as well. President Trump should start draining the swamp beginning with all of these traitors!
