The subdued reaction of both Obama and Holder to the Paris attacks is similar to their reactions in the past. They refuse to acknowledge that these attacks are Islamic Jihadist Terrorist attacks, even though the Terrorists themselves openly state that the attacks are being done in the name of the prophet. The attack at Fort Hood by Hassan is another great example. Hassam has openly stated this was an attack in the name of Islam. Yet the regime continues to insist it was work place violence and not an Islamist terrorist attack.
Indeed, Obama’s public reactions to the attacks in Paris last week have been muted. His initial response Wednesday to the killing of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper offices was delivered as he sat calmly in an armchair in the Oval Office speaking about the “cowardly” acts and defending freedom of the press. Two days later, as a gunman took hostages and went on to kill four people in a kosher grocery, Obama took a few seconds away from a community college proposal roll-out in Tennessee because he said with events unfolding, “I wanted to make sure to comment on them” — but never then or afterward specifically condemned that attack.
When asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Eric Holder refused to characterize the United States’ fight as one against radical Islam, maintaining that the war was with individuals corrupting the faith.
“Well, I certainly think we are at war with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith in the way that they do to try to justify their terrorist actions. So that’s who we are at war with,” Holder said, “and we are determined to take the fight to them to prevent them from engaging in these kinds of activities.”
The summit that was called by the regime in February is a summit to counter terrorism. Nothing is said about the reality of this terrorism that world leaders have condemned as Islamic terrorism. The world leaders have stated the obvious. The regime refuses to state the obvious. Even Muslim leaders around the globe have stated the obvious. Obama and Holder wish to protect this Islamic terrorism because they support this Islamic terrorism; it detracts from their efforts to bring about a Marxist totalitarian state, or a combination.
