Why is Obama Unable to Call Terrorist Attacks Islamic Terrorism?

Excerpted from an article by Wayne Root, published Jan. 12, 2015 on The Blaze
As a kid we used to say “Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”

We were wrong. Words are dangerous. Words can be deadly. Words (or lack of them) can inspire terrorism. As radical Islamic Jihad threatens our countries, our children and our free speech, there is a new Neville Chamberlain. His name is Barack Hussein Obama.

The problem is in the words Obama says and doesn’t say. The words he uses to praise Islam and the words he refuses to say to denounce radical Islam are dangerous to America. 

Ask any general. The key to fighting a war is to know your enemy. In the history of warfare, no one has ever been afraid to say the enemy’s name out loud. Until now. Until Obama.

Why can’t Obama connect the words “Islam” and “terrorism”? It’s not as if there isn’t enough evidence….

It’s clear to anyone but an idiot or a liberal … that the world’s enemy is radical Islam. But sadly, it’s more not just “radical Islam.” Let’s stop being politically correct. Islam itself is a problem. Millions of Muslims who aren’t “radical” support and even celebrate intolerance and terrorism…..

I was born a Jew. My relatives were murdered in Germany. Not every German was a Nazi murderer. But most every German went along with the Holocaust. They knew what was happening. They let it happen. They remained silent while six million Jews were tortured, enslaved, and gassed. That made them complicit in the murders.

What is happening today is eerily similar. Not all Muslims are bad people. Ninety-five percent will never murder anyone. Ninety-five percent will never be a terrorist. But like Germans of the Nazi era, most Muslims remain silent about the horrific acts of their brothers and sisters.

Even Muslims in America are guilty of silence. Have you seen any marches in Detroit by American Muslims denouncing terrorism? That makes them complicit. You are either for intolerance, terrorism and murder…or against it….
