What is the root cause of Islamic terrorism, and why is the White House refusing to call it what it is? There are some interesting opinions circulating about this, and I’m deeply concerned something is amiss in the White House.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Monday night on MSNBC that ‘we cannot win this war by killing them, we cannot kill our way out of this war.’
Instead, she said, the administration should ‘go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups’ – including ‘lack of opportunity for jobs.’
‘We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance,’ Harf insisted. ‘We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.’
Denial At the Top, Brilliance, Plain Ignorance or Does it Go Deeper?
Statements like that and the obvious denial by the White House that any terror attack by Islamic extremists is Islamic at all has people seriously concerned with the present administration. Is President Obama in denial, is he just ignorant or is there a deeper reason why he refuses to call a spade a spade? Or is he brilliant trying not to offend the majority of Islamic people who do not wage war against the rest of the world?
Retired top U.S. General Tom McInerney said, “I don’t know. Maybe we have some Islamists embedded in the White House,” McInerney said. “Whatever it is, it is absolutely bizarre. When Charlie Hebdo was attacked in Europe, everybody was calling it radical Islam except our president, who was calling it violent extremists.”
“What is the ideology of violent extremists? I don’t know,” he said. “Are they Irish? Are they Swedes? Who are they? I do know what the ideology of radical Islamists is. It is the Quran, the Hadith and Shariah law. Those are the things that we are fighting against.”
Is President Obama Compromised on the Real Threat?
Is Obama Secretly Muslim?
I’m not the first to ask this question. It’s obvious he is a supporter of Islam for whatever reasons he has. When I heard him say, “The future does not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam.” I was taken aback. That statement, which I heard with my own ears on radio news coverage, is actually a threat, is it not? To me, this statement is so obviously pro-Islam that it shows to me that our President is compromised on the issue.
If indeed President Obama is compromised on Islam, he is not in any position to wage war against Islamic terrorists. He can’t even call them what they are — Islamic. This raises serious doubts about his ability and credibility to wage war on behalf of the United States against Islamic terrorism.
It’s interesting to note that Christian extremists who lead others are said to be a “Christian cult.” Nobody runs around saying they are not “Christian” even if they are not. They are claiming to be Christian, hence they are called a Christian “cult.”
If those involved in terrorist activities claim to be Islamic, why are they not called an “Islamic cult.” They invoke the name of their prophet, they pray five times a day, don’t eat pork and do everything they do according to their Koran — including the 35 verses that call for killing those who do not accept Islam and their prophet.
Whatever You Call it, It’s Source is Spiritual
There is a lot of press about Obama’s refusal to call Islamic terrorism what it is. It’s long been known that to fight your enemy you have to identify him first. Without a clear identification, you can’t know the best way to counter him. The enemy here is spiritual. It’s name is Islamic Jihad, which is the systematic taking over of the entire world politically, economically and spiritually. Every Muslim is called to worldwide Jihad though, thankfully, only a relative handful have engaged so far. Those numbers will increase and this threat will not vanish. They will continue to infiltrate the countries of this world, multiply at an exponential rate compared to natives of the countries they move into, and demand Sharia law wherever they go. They will never integrate and assimilate fully.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
We live in a spiritual world. God is over all and in ultimate control of everything. He is working all things to fulfill His own will which is “the restitution of all things in heaven and on earth.” Often we cannot make the connection between what is happening in this world and how it fits in God’s overall Plan, but we can be assured that it does. God will indeed make His name and power known to all in due time.
As we get closer to the return of Jesus when all will be set right, we must remember that the battle being played out in the physical world has its counterpart in the spiritual. Its cause is spiritual, while its effects are manifest in the physical realm. The devil wants to eliminate, that is kill, Jews, Christians and anyone who won’t bow down and worship him, whether it be through a false religion, a false prophet, a compromised business person or compromised White House official. Jesus Christ is the dividing line and we get to choose which side we are on — his or not his.
