Failure to understand America is Obama’s biggest failure and America’s biggest problem. Obama doesn’t think like an American, at least not a mainstream America. Obama is an Outlier to America; a foreigner by birth, nurture, education and experience. A profoundly un-American if you want to be compassionate; profoundly anti-American if you want to be accurate.

Obama supports and defends Islam. He tried to trick us into accepting ISIS as “illegitimate Islam”. The very name of the enemy proves him wrong. “Islamic State….” Obama said ISIS had: “perverted the name of Islam”. After telling the lie that ISIS is not Islamic he changes direction to show ISIS is Islamic after all but not the correct version of Islam. So Obama’s lies and says ISIS is antagonistic to Islam when ISIS is Islamic. It’s VERY Islamic. It’s legitimacy is based on coherent and even nuanced interpretations of Islam.

Graeme Wood wrote in: “What ISIS Really Wants”: “We can gather that [the caliphate state] rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world.”

That’s as Islamic as one can get yet Obama says ISIS isn’t Islamic.

Bernard Haykel, the foremost secular authority on the Islamic State’s ideology that in “regards the claim that the Islamic State has distorted the texts of Islam as preposterous, sustainable only through willful ignorance.””People want to absolve Islam,” he told Wood. “It’s this ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ mantra. Islam is what Muslims do, and how they interpret their texts. Those texts are shared by all Sunni Muslims, not just the Islamic State. ‘And these guys have just as much legitimacy as anyone else.”

Wood explains: In Haykel’s estimation, the fighters of the Islamic State are authentic throwbacks to early Islam and are faithfully reproducing its norms of war. This behavior includes a number of practices that modern Muslims tend to prefer not to acknowledge as integral to their sacred texts. ‘Slavery, crucifixion, and beheadings are not something that freakish [jihadists] are cherry-picking from the medieval tradition,’ Haykel said. Islamic State fighters ‘are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition and are bringing it wholesale into the present day.’ … Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically … ’embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion’ that neglects ‘what their religion has historically and legally required.’ Many denials of the Islamic State’s religious nature, [says Haykel], are rooted in an “interfaith-Christian-nonsense tradition.” Yet Obama says ISIS isn’t Islamic

Widely quoted in Wood’s ISIS exposé, Haykel takes a position similar to Pope Benedict XVI. “The only principled ground that the Islamic State’s opponents could take” to justify their belief that ISIS is un-Islamic “is to say that certain core texts and traditional teachings of Islam are no longer valid. [And] That really would be an act of apostasy.” yet Obama says ISIS isn’t Islamic.

Both Obama and ISIS share a common understanding of Islam even though Obama tries to trick everyone into accepting his lie that the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant is not Islamic. Obama speaks lies.
