Giuliani blisters Obama’s ‘cowardice and weakness’ on ‘radical Islam’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t hold back in offering his opinion on President Obama’s handling of radical Islam.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday, Giuliani said the president is dislaying dangerous weakness with his unwillingness to say the words “radical Islam.”

“I think it’s very serious because it sends a signal of cowardice and weakness,” he told host Sean Hannity.

The former mayor also compared the Obama administrations response to radical Islamic terrorism to former President George W. Bush’s response.

“These people, this is 40 years of experience, they respect strength,” he said. “When George Bush hit them in Afghanistan, I knew immediately that my city was gonna be safe for a while because they were on defense.

“You don’t do what Obama does. You don’t show reluctance to use their name. You don’t show reluctance to march with world leaders who are marching against radical Islamic terrorism.”

Hannity ridiculed the administration’s official position that the terrorist attack in Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 was “workplace violence” — and Giuliani agreed.

“It’s absurd,” Giuliani said. “Once again it’s a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of cowardice. It’s a sign to people who are bullies that they can take advantage of us.”

Giuliani offered an interesting reason why the president may be so weak on radical Islam.

“Is it his ideology?” he asked. “Is it his sympathy for a religion that maybe as a youngster he learned more about than other people?”

Maybe he learned that it isn’t safe to call it “radical.”
