President Trump has moved toward identifying the enemy honestly. After eight years of Obama denying that Islamic jihad terrorism had anything to do with Islam, and praising Islam to the skies at every opportunity while denigrating Christianity in no uncertain terms, it is refreshing that Trump is unafraid to call Islamic terror Islamic terror, although he does add the unnecessary and inaccurate modifier “radical.” It’s not radical; it’s mainstream. Also, Obama scrubbed all mention of Islam and jihad from counter-terror training, and there are still many who hold this view in our intelligence and law enforcement agencies. They need to be rooted out and replaced by people who are more honest and realistic.
“WATCH: Trump Vows to Stomp Out ‘Radical Islamic Terror’ at Anti-ISIS Conference,” United with Israel, February 7, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
Unlike his predecessor, the current U.S. president is not afraid to single out the ideology behind Mideast strife, from terrorism in Israel to Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons.
U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS after his State of the Union speech just one day prior.
Trump got straight to the point, vowing that the U.S. would continue to fight the forces of “radical Islamic terror,” and vanquish the Islamic State (ISIS), an ultra-violent group that has murdered and pillaged its way through Iraq and large swaths of Syria for the past five years or so.
While ISIS is on the ropes, it is holed up in a concentrated area, with a handful of never-say-die adherents refusing to surrender. If Trump has his way, these remnants of ISIS will be taken care of as well.
