‘Islamic’ extremism off the table at White House terrorism summit

Today marks the start of the “don’t say Islam” White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.

The summit is going to focus on combating violent extremism on social media —  because so many have been beheaded on Twitter — but the word “Islam” will not be used, according to the New York Post.

As terrorists target and attack Jews and Christians in the name of Islam, the White House is continuing to keep its head in the sand, pretending there is no religious connection to these “random” crimes.

“You can call them what you want; we’re calling them terrorists,” a senior Obama administration official told reporters.

“There is absolutely no justification for any of these attacks in any religion, and that’s the view of the vast majority of Muslims who have suffered huge casualities from the likes of IS or al Qaeda,” the official said. “We are not treating these people as part of a religion. We’re treating them as terrorists.”

There can be little doubt that this summit will be useless if the administration stubbornly keeps denying that a radical form of Islam is the root cause for these global atrocities.
