• Ted Cruz: Obama ‘An Apologist For Radical Islamic Terrorists’

    In a segment last night on Fox News, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said President Barack Obama has become “an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists.” Cruz criticized the Obama administration for refusing to call the brutal beheading of 21 Coptic Christians in Egypt and the burning of 45 people in Iraq this week as “radical Islamic terrorism.”

    Cruz says it’s shameful that the White House didn’t even, at least, acknowledge that the 21 beheaded in Egypt were Christians.

    “ISIS is the face of evil, and these latest atrocities . . . our heart breaks,” Cruz said on The Kelly File. “And to see 21 Coptic Christians murdered, beheaded by radical Islamic terrorists, to see 45 people lit on fire . . . this is horrific and it is deliberate and it is targeted at Christians. It is targeted at Jews. It’s targeted at Muslims in the region who do not exceed to the radical Islamist view.”

    Indeed, Obama administration dull statement condemning the brutal beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians by ISIS militants didn’t mention the victim’s or the murders’ faith.

    Cruz also blasted State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf’s comments that the U.S. “cannot kill its way out” of war with ISIS, adding that we just need to provide the Jihadists with jobs.

    “Now, with respect, that is idiocy,” Cruz said. “The solution here is not expanded Medicaid. The solution is the full force of U.S. military power to destroy the leaders of ISIS. They have declared war … jihad on the United States. Jihad is another word the president doesn’t say.”

    Cruz also slammed Obama’s “morally equivalent” prayer breakfast remarks were the president equated ISIS’ current violence to the Crusades.

    “Now last I checked, the Crusades began a millennia ago, and I don’t think it’s too much to ask the president to stay in the current millennium,” Cruz said.

    Cruz concluded by praising Egyptian President el-Sisi, who denounced Islamic radicalism in a new year’s speech.

    “Why don’t we see the president of the United States demonstrating that same courage just to speak the truth about the face of evil we’re facing right now?” Cruz asked.
