The following is a stark look inside the Obama administration and it's national security viewpoint. See a video below of Counterterrorism adviser John Brennan speaking of the beauty of Islam, speaking in Arabic, he referrs to Jerusalem by the Arabic name Al Quds, and he denies that Islamic jihad has anything to do with Islam.
On May 26th, Obama Counterterrorism adivser Brennan defended 'jihad,' saying the following:
During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces," but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms." [But the truth is, Islam is a religion which governs and Islam is the only government governing Muslims in Muslim countries]
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not "terrorism," because terrorism is a "tactic," and not terror, because terror is a "state of mind" -- though Brennan's title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word "terrorism" in it. But then Brennan said that the word "jihad" should not be applied either.
"Nor do we describe our enemy as 'jihadists' or 'Islamists' because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children," Brennan said. [Who is "we?" Does he have a frog in his pocket? If Brennan wants to make us believe that there is nothing "holy" or "legitimate" or "Islamic" about murdering innocents, then how does he explain the murders of innocent Muslims, in the name of Allah - a practice that goes on in every Muslim country, everyday. The girl who walks in the street with a man who is not a relative, or a woman who refuses to cover her body and hair with appropriate Islamic clothing? What about the young gay man or lesbian woman who dies at the hands of mighty Muslims, in the name of Allah?]
The technical, broadest definition of jihad is a "struggle" in the name of Islam and the term does not connote "holy war" for all Muslims. However, jihad frequently connotes images of military combat or warfare, and some of the world's most wanted terrorists including Usama bin Laden commonly use the word to call for war against the West. [Yes, we all know about the Islamic word for "struggle," and it means the struggle against infidels. In the video linked under the photo above, Palestinians cheer, children included, and at the time of the video, they were not members of bin Laden's army. Today, they are probably a willing jihadist].
Brennan defined the enemy as members of bin Laden's Al Qaeda network and "its terrorist affiliates."
But Brennan argued that it would be "counterproductive" for the United States to use the term, as it would "play into the false perception" that the "murderers" leading war against the West are doing so in the name of a "holy cause."
"Moreover, describing our enemy in religious terms would lend credence to the lie propagated by Al Qaeda and its affiliates to justify terrorism -- that the United States is somehow at war against Islam," he said.
The comment comes after Brennan, in a February speech in which he described his respect for the tolerance and devotion of Middle Eastern nations, referred to Jerusalem on first reference by its Arabic name, Al-Quds. See this video below.
"In all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem, where three great faiths come together," Brennan said at an event co-sponsored by the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Islamic Center at New York University and the Islamic Law Students Association at NYU.When Obama was crowned and moved into the White House, he brought a calculated crack the size of a canyon to our national security, and he surrounded himself with believers in Allah.
