Lowlights From Obama’s Dull Speech At ‘Extremism’ Summit

In case you were worried that a war with Islamic terrorists was brewing, don’t be.

Because President Obama said so.

*Sigh of relief

“We’re not at war with Islam,” Obama said Wednesday at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, AKA, the “Let’s Not Offend Any Muslims and Keep Everything As PC As Possible” summit.

(Video of the divorced-from-reality speech above.)

As the Blaze reports, President Obama said today that the only way to combat radicalization is to challenge the belief that Western values conflict with Islam. Makes sense…except, of course, if you ask the two victims who were recently stabbed by a Muslim man simply for not being Muslim themselves. The incident happened in Detroit, not Syria, Libya, or Iraq.

It’s been a major uphill battle for the President to even utter the word “Islamic Extremism,” despite criticism from fellow Democrats, like Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who blasted Obama’s refusal to admit that there may be a theological motivation to ISIS’ attacks.

Rep. Gabbard spoke to CNN on Wednesday and said that the Summit is a distraction from the bigger issue of Islamic terrorism.

“The White House is misidentifying the enemy and their motivation by saying they’re fueled by things like poverty and a lack of opportunity,” she said

The Congresswoman may be reacting to a statement that State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf made when she said that the root cause of people joining ISIS is due to lack of jobs in the Middle East. HA!

I can see the campaign slogans now…”Let’s Create Jobs…In Syria“.

But instead of jobs, let’s spread the love, at least that’s what BHO wants as he read a Valentine’s Day card of an 11-year-old Muslim girl named Sabrina, who wrote that she was worried about being targeted because of her faith.

“We’re just like everyone else” she said, Obama told the crowd.

I think it was much more fitting to use the card of a likely fictitious girl, rather than controversial Muslim leader, Salam Al-Marayati, who called Israel a “suspect” after 9/11. After all, he was at the the White House summit as well, and has such colorful words about foreign policy.

“If we’re going to look at suspects [for 9/11], we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what’s happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies,” he said in a radio interview shortly after the attacks in 2001, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Why not read a card from him or any of the other extremists that were in attendance at the Summit?

For instance, Nicole Mossalam, the mosque owner who blocked congregants from giving police any information about the Boston bombings, why not her?

Or, Nabeel Khudairi, a Boston ophthalmologist who persecuted members of his mosque after they tried to warn of Islamic extremist in their community. He would have been delightful.

“Nobody should be profiled simply because of their faith,” said Obama, and I couldn’t agree more, which is all the more reason why the world should unite against ISIS who are targeting and beheading innocent people because of their religious convictions.

But we wouldn’t want to offend anyone, would we?

It’s not as though American citizens and Egyptian Christians have been beheaded by a group identifying as the “Islamic State” or anything.
