“ISIS executed the Imam of Nabi Yunis mosque, Sheikh Abdullah Fahad and the Imam of Kabir Mosque, Sheikh Ayub Abdul Wahab in Mosul,” a security source told Rudaw. Two Muslim clerics were executed by firing squad and four civilians were beheaded in Mosul, Iraq for speaking out against ISIS and its recent burning alive of the captive Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh.
Should we be surprised at ISIS’s murderous actions? Not at all. This is what happens when there is no freedom of speech. This is what happens when there is no freedom of religion. This is what happens when militant extremism is permitted to grow in the name of tolerance.
While, Jordanian fighter pilots carried out devastating sorties against ISIS today, making good on King Abdullah’s vow of vengeance for the horrific burning death of their captured pilot–the real question is what is President Obama doing to respond to ISIS and prevent Muslim extremists from bringing their horror to the streets of United States of America?
That’s a good question because it appears President Obama is too busy entertaining the Muslim Brotherhood in the Oval Office and blaming Christians for inciting Muslims throughout history by “committing terrible deeds in the name of Christ” at the National Prayer Breakfast to bother doing more than issuing half-hearted statements to be “part of a global coalition to make sure that [ISIS is] degraded and ultimately defeated.”
Whatever that means.
When will this president blame Muslims for committing terrible deeds in the name of Islam? When will this president put some real action behind his hollow words?
