Obama’s mulish resolve to steer clear of terms that identify America’s worst enemy, Islamic jihad, has been unexpectedly challenged by al Qaeda, of all groups.
In the face of direct confrontation on why he avoids telling it like it is, Obama’s response has been to condemn “loose talk” about Muslims, saying there was “no magic to the phrase, ‘radical Islam.’ It’s a political talking point; it’s not a strategy.” So Obama has advised that “ we need to demonstrate that we are defined more — as a country — by the way they lived their lives than by the hate of the man who took them from us.”
The absurdity of Obama’s obstinate refusal to acknowledge that America is under attack by Islamic jihadists prompted a question to Obama from a Washington Times columnist: “Are you Shiite-ing me???”
Again: it’s Islamic jihad, and just to make sure that Obama et al get the memo, al Qaeda decided that it, too, would help to clarify who the enemy of America is, in hopes that the lesson just might stick this time. Al Qaeda has now urged lone wolves to target white people specifically, in order to avoid the “hate crime” label and wake up Americans to the reality that they are at war with Islamic jihad.
Ironically, America’s leftist leadership doesn’t want to be politically incorrect and appear racist, so it continues to make a global laughing stock out of America and worse, to put the American people in danger at the hands of Islamic jihadists, in its refusal to identify the nature of this enemy and formulate multilayered strategies to combat it.
Although al Qaeda was not involved in the Pulse massacre, it has now openly expressed its support for its rival, the Islamic State, in a united front against their common enemy, America.
“Al Qaeda urges lone wolves to target whites, to avoid ‘hate crime’ label”, Fox News, June 24, 2016:
Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.
In an article first reported by The Foreign Desk, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) called for more self-directed Muslim terrorists to kill in America. But the article, titled “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” tells terrorists to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found” because if gays or Latinos appear to be the targets, “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”
In the June 12 attack in Orlando, Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 53 inside a gay nightclub. Although Mateen, who was later killed by police, told hostage negotiators he pledged allegiance to ISIS, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has characterized the attack as a hate crime against gays.
“I cannot tell you definitively that we will ever narrow it down to one motivation,” Lynch told reporters last week. “People often act out of more than one motivation.
“This was clearly an act of terror and an act of hate,” she continued. “We will look at all motivations and hope to come to a conclusion there.”
Although Al Qaeda does not take credit for Mateen’s attack in the online article, it urges more “lone wolves” to take up arms. Jihadists should target “areas where the Anglo-Saxon community is generally concentrated,” it states. “This class of the American community is the majority and it is the one that is in the American leadership…..
