Barack Obama has been one of only a few political leaders who call the Islamic State group by the acronym “ISIL” instead of “ISIS,” which everyone else uses.
The term “ISIS” stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, while “ISIL” refers to the same group of terrorists, but considers them the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
There may not seem like that much difference between the two acronyms at first, but as Rush Limbaugh recently pointed out, the president intentionally refers to the group as “ISIL” for one disgusting reason: To insult Israel.
Here’s the report from the Conservative Tribune:
“‘The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant includes more than Iraq and Syria,’ Limbaugh explained during an episode of his radio show in December 2015. ‘It would include Israel, which, to these people, Israel is a fraud. Israel doesn’t deserve to be there.’
“In other words, by using the acronym ‘ISIL,’ the president has validated the radical Islamic claim that the Jewish State of Israel is merely an occupation state and does not exist as a sovereign nation in the eyes of Muslims.
“Limbaugh argued that Obama has chosen to use the anti-Israel term in order to appease Iran, a nation that could benefit from the sectarian violence by using it as justification for moving into vulnerable parts of the region to “protect” people from the Islamic State group’s brutality.”
Obama hasn’t publicly admitted he’s a Muslim, but based on his actions – and lack of criticism against radical Islamic terrorism – it appears that he is. This subtle yet powerful distinction between ISIS and ISIL proves that he’s not on the side of Judeo-Christian values or governments.
Do you agree with Rush on the reason why Obama intentionally uses the acronym “ISIL” instead of “ISIS” to describe the Islamic State terror group?
