In an age when so-called peaceful neighbors could turn out to be terrorists, it’s natural for American citizens to be concerned for their safety.
Though most people acknowledge that not all Muslims are terrorists, the Obama Administration never fails to criticize even legitimate worries.
Case-in-point, Jeh Johnson—Secretary of Homeland Security—and his misguided and manipulative appearance at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society. His half-hearted appearance was supposed to represent the President’s support of Muslim Americans and to remind the rest of us that we’re bigots for being concerned.
As Clash Daily reports:
“My message today is this: In responding to this new environment, we must not vilify American Muslims. We must not throw a net of suspicion over American Muslims and an entire religion. We must not force American Muslims to run and hide, and retreat to the shadows. This would be counter to our homeland security efforts, and it is un-American.”
Side Note: Now you may be asking yourself why it’s the Homeland Security Secretary’s job to berate American citizens. Shouldn’t he and the rest of that agency be protecting America? Maybe he should stick to his real job, instead of jumping at photo ops.
The Obama Administration failed to point out that on stage with the man responsible for keeping America safe from terrorism was Imam Mohamed Magid. They even posed for a photo.
Why is this a problem? Because Magid is president of the Islamic Society of North America, an organization which has acknowledged ties to Hamas, the terrorist organization that regularly attacks Israel.
Ouch, Mr. Johnson, maybe your PR people should have vetted the attendees to this event, before snapping the photos.
Or perhaps this President should stop defending people who do not need it (and sometimes don’t deserve it…i.e. Bowe Bergdahl), and get to protecting American lives.
