In an amazing statement before the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, Hillary Clinton said that she sees “zero connection” between Islamic terrorist networks seeking to create a would-be caliphate, the radical jihadism they preach, and Islam.
Here are some of Mrs. Clinton’s remarks as reported by World Net Daily:
“Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary, Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.
“It is time to begin a new phase and intensify and broaden our efforts to smash the would-be caliphate and deny ISIS control of territory in Iraq and Syria. To be successful, airstrikes will have to be combined with ground forces actually taking back more territory from ISIS.”
She also advocated a no-fly zone and a greater usage of airstrikes to counter the terrorist group. Clinton said she would essentially duplicate President Obama’s efforts against ISIS, but with a more aggressive posture.
The double-speak in Hillary’s statements are nothing short of Orwellian. How can she say with a straight face that Muslims are “peaceful and tolerant people” and at least a sect of Islam “is not our adversary”, when the name of the group we’re trying to defeat calls themselves the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – or the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant?!
And it’s odd that her chief of staff, Huma Mahmood Abedin, has been rumored (and accused by five Republican Congressmen) to have family members with connections to the radical Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic groups.
Why do you think Hillary Clinton seems to be defending radical Islamists in the Middle East?
