The fact that ISIS and ISIL call themselves ‘Islamic State’ would make them Islamic, no? Apparently Obama doesn’t think so.
ISIL and ISIS literally stands for “Islamic State” but the current President of the United States doesn’t think they’re “Islamic.”
“ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said in his speech Wednesday night about ISIL [ISIS]. “No religion condones the killing if innocents. The vast majority of ISIL victims have been Muslim and ISIL is certainly not a state.”
By this logic, Islamic State terrorists who kill Muslims because they aren’t radical enough or the proper type of Muslim, aren’t “Islamic.” Obama’s asinine statement comes just a few weeks after two American journalists had their heads sawed off in the name of Allah.
