Obama: Muslims Are Our Friends, Neighbors And Sports Heroes


obamaAs reported earlier here on Matzav, President Barack Obama used his Sunday night address on terrorism to reassure the American people that the San Bernardino shootings last week appear to be an isolated incident, despite one of the killers pledging allegiance to ISIS.

The president firmly dismissed a change in strategy in the war against the extremists that would require combat troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria.
And while terrorist group is made of “thugs and killers” and is part of a “cult of death,” he again refused to call them “radical Islamic terrorists.”

Americans must not take out their grievances with the fanatics on followers of Islam, he said.

“Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors are coworkers, our sports heroes. And yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country,” the president said, speaking from the Oval Office. “We have to remember that.”

  1. It’s insulting that President Obama thinks we’re small-minded bigots who need to be reminded that not all Moslems are evil. And then we see that Trump and Carson are making political hay by capitalizing on the disturbingly large number of people who do feel that way. Where oh where is the sensible centrist candidate we’d love to see?

  2. He is beyond words….period..end of sentence.
    We just have to ask ourselves how he got the position he did….2x no less.
    Through mo fault of our own…huh?

  3. Muslims aren’t the enemy; the real enemies are the GOP and NRA. They want domestic incidents like these to occur so they can turn the US into an all-white, Christian nation that persecutes Jews and other minorities. This country needs much tougher laws to prevent people from obtaining guns and bombs. Thank you Mr. President for keeping us safe!

  4. Exactly. Maybe the killers that OJ was seeking all these years on the golf course, were actually the Muslim couple that massacred those people in San Bernardino. Hmm, you never know.

  5. As long as we insist on maintaining the “moral high ground”, we will NEVER win the war on terrorism! We’re in a conflict which we absolutely INSIST in playing by the rules – against a maniacal group who have NO rules! Rattlesnake Logic in dealing with terrorists. After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The media is in a tizzy about this new era of home-grown radicals and about why and how they can live among us and still hate us. A Texan explained it: 
    Here in west Texas , I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter. I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it WILL bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do.
     I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a “meaningful dialogue” with it. I just kill it.
     I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me.. I just kill them. 
    I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are, because
     (a) it won’t tell me and 
    (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one. I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake. I just kill it.
     Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect what they can do to me and my family? Yes!
     And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve. I kill them. 
    As a country, we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists’ are telling the world their goal is to kill Americans and destroy our way of life. They have posted graphic videos on the internet showing them beheading Americans. They are serious. They are exactly like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to start acting accordingly! I love this country. 
    It’s the government I’m afraid of! Why? Look who’s new in the White House!

    This is flat-out scary! The foxes are now officially living in the hen house… 
    Now ask me why I am very concerned! Do you feel OK with this? How can this happen? – and when will we wake up? We are quiet while our country is being drastically changed!
