Early in the President’s speech he defined ISIL as “not Islamic.” What’s the first “I” stand for again?
At this moment, the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa, where radical groups exploit grievances for their own gain. And one of those groups is ISIL – which calls itself the “Islamic State.”
Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.
Okay, we might buy that they’re not a state, but not Islamic?
“ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’"

It'd be nice if someone other than the President would tell us #ISIS isn't really islamic. Like maybe lots and lots of Muslims.

@Cameron_Gray He is scared to death to blame Islam for anything

Obama says ISIS not Islamic. Someone should probably tell them that.

It’s amazing his voice echoed so much with his head buried so deeply in the sand.
