Skip to comments.Obama: Religious Acceptance Key to Combating Extremism
Posted on 02/19/2015 10:01:45 AM PST by Jim Robinson
President Barack Obama told world leaders on Thursday that promoting democracy and acceptance of people of all faiths are essential to stopping the spread of violent extremism.
"Groups like al Qaeda and [ISIS] peddle the lie that some of our countries are hostile to Muslims. Meanwhile we've also seen, most recently in Europe, arise inexcusable acts of anti-Semitism, or in some cases anti-Muslim sentiment, or anti-immigrant sentiment," Obama said at the closing session of a White House summit on combating extremism. "When people spew hatred towards others because of their faith or because of their faith or because they are immigrants, it feeds into terrorist narratives."
The president's remarks come as anti-Muslim sentiment is on the rise in Europe following terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen.
"The notion that the West is at war with Islam is an ugly lie," Obama said.

Obama is a fool for denying it. The Islamic fascists are not interested whatsoever in democracy or in the west kissing their asses. They want us dead!
It’s not a religion doofus...It’s a political system...the plan....to dominate the world...no different than Hitler.
The problem is ... there is no religious acceptance by the Islamists and Islamic Terrorists!
In the mean time, leftists are making it illegal to be a Christian and own a business. See any of the recent homosexual cases against Christian business owners and the judgements to see what I am talking about.
Leftists and islamists, go together like peas and carrots, until the islamists kill the leftists, that is.
Therefore, he will be imposing sanctions on all Muslim countries which prohibit possession of Jewish/Christian Bibles, or the building of Jewish synagogues and Christian churches.
Right? (Cough, cough).
So, he seems to be saying that extreme Islamic violence is cause by reacting negatively to extreme islamic violence.
Agreed. As in the 1930s, now is not the time for such misguided notions and weak leadership. We are at war. We either fight now when it is easier, or later when the butcher will demand a much higher bill. BO must be replaced immediately!
Islam is at war with civilization .. Obama seems to be absolutely fine as long as Christians and whites are being killed...He seems to enjoy supporting Islamic and black extremism and murder.
I am thinking by “acceptance” he means conversion.
Denying mohammedan aggression is part of his agenda. He's one of them.
Barky’s out of his f’n gord.
Yes they do and they want to chop our burning heads off!
Islam is Sharia Law and is therefore INCOMPATIBLE with Democracy, just as 0bama himself is.
Doth Obama protest too much????
How can he be so empty-headed? The people who are doing the most of this activity are his Islamist friends. How could he not want to avoid this statement when it highlights so well the problem the world has with Islamism?
Is he a fool, or a moslem sympathizer?
Islam is at war with us.
Liberals think Islam is like Hinduism or Buddhism.
Not quite. If we don’t submit we can be its slaves or we can face being beheaded.
No form of Islam has ever given us anything but those two choices.
