Eric Holder seriously needs to get a clue about Al Qaeda and about Islam. Hopefully, the next U.S. Attorney General will be more realistic. Here are excerpts from reports by TheHill.com.
“Holder also said that while Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility on Friday, the United States has no “credible information” about the true sponsor of the killings.” – Quoted from “Holder: French attacks point to US threats”
Gee, we can’t have Al Qaeda be responsible for any more terrorist attacks, because such a thing would contradict what the Obama Administration said about Al Qaeda back before the 2012 presidential election.
“Asked on ABC’s “This Week” if the U.S. is at war with “radical Islam,” Holder said the country is at war “with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith … to try to justify their terrorist actions.”” – Quoted from “US at war with terrorists who ‘corrupt’ Islam, Holder says”
Muslim terrorists didn’t have to “corrupt” Islam in order to justify their terrorism, because modern-day Muslim terrorists are merely doing what the earliest Muslims did, which was to use the threat of physical harm to get people to conform to Islam.
I am glad that there is now a peaceful version of Islam, and I disagree with pundits who try to promote hatred for the peaceful version. However, that version is primarily practiced in nations where there is actual freedom of religion.
I hope that I am wrong, but I suspect that there will always be Muslim terrorists as long as there are nations in which there is no separation of mosque and state.
