Obama to United Nations: ‘The U.S. Is Not at War with Islam; Islam Teaches Peace’

Obama UN IVIn his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, Barack Obama asserted that the United States is not fighting the religion of Islam in its efforts to stop the insurgency of the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), because Islam, he said, is peaceful.

“[W]e have reaffirmed that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace,” he said to the gathering of world leaders in his sixth address before the UN. “Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them—there is only us, because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.”

“So we reject any suggestion of a clash of civilizations,” Obama continued. “Belief in permanent religious war is the misguided refuge of extremists who cannot build or create anything, and therefore peddle only fanaticism and hate. And it is no exaggeration to say that humanity’s future depends on us uniting against those who would divide us along fault lines of tribe or sect, race or religion.”

In calling for other nations to take a stand against the barbaric group ISIS, also known as ISIL, Obama again repeated his assertion that the violent philosophies of the Islamic organization are not characteristic of any religion.

“No God condones this terror,” he contended. “There can be no reasoning, no negotiation, with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force. So the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death.”

Obama then outlined a plan for defeating ISIS, including cutting off funding to the group, and creating an interfaith alliance.

“That means bringing people of different faiths together,” he explained. “All religions have been attacked by extremists from within at some point, and all people of faith have a responsibility to lift up the value at the heart of all religion: do unto thy neighbor as you would have done unto you.”

“Next year, we should all be prepared to announce the concrete steps that we have taken to counter extremist ideologies—by getting intolerance out of schools, stopping radicalization before it spreads, and promoting institutions and programs that build new bridges of understanding,” Obama continued.

This is not the first time that the president has asserted that ISIS is not representative of the Muslim faith. As previously reported, in his speech to the nation on September 10th, Obama made similar statements that left some scratching their heads.

“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” he said. “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,” Obama continued. “It was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

The U.S. began launching airstrikes against the group in Syria on Monday, with other attacks on key targets continuing throughout the week.

  • David Wells

    The President’s remark “Islam teaches peace,” is at best a half truth. What the Koran teaches is that ‘there will be peace when all have converted to Islam.’ The Koran also teaches that it is okay for Muslims to tell a lie if it is for the purpose of furthering the cause of Islam (let that sink in a moment). This is not my opinion, it’s the Koran; read for yourself here: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/quran/023-violence.htm

    The reality is that true peace is found in Christ Jesus alone, for God so loved the world (including the Muslims), that He sent His son!

  • Mike Graves

    Yes!!! David Wells, in the nutshell, they are a political cultic killing machine disguised as a religion, Obama speaks half truths, Now any place that Islam exist there is either oppression or war, yes to freedom yes to Christ, no to Islam no to death, it cannot exist in a democracy, in the nutshell.

    • Watchman on the Wall

      Same comments apply equally to to the religion of Talmudic Judaism: it cannot exist in a democracy without corrupting and defiling it beyond recognition. It has already happened. The Antichrist reigns today.

  • Jan van Niekerk

    So the violence of Islamists who hold to the fundamentals of Islam is to be used as a lever to silence Christians who hold to the fundamentals taught by Christ? Nobody must have the freedom to speak what they really believe: everyone shall say what the religion established by the state states.

    • bowie1

      Does that mean a Christian may not say anything Christian in an Islamic state? Freedom of religion means that people are free to express their views without interference. Islamists then cannot simply silence others but can speak their mind.

    Ratical islamists have waged war with America and our president needs to realize that.

    Anyone, anything, any spirit that is not for Christ and his Gospel , it don’t matter who or what you call or label them or whom it is . They are antichrist ,simple as that ,Wake up Americans!! They are serving the god of this world. I don’t have to tell you who that is do I? There is only one way Allmerica we need to shout it From the housetops where they like it or not .

    ( Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. ) .There is no such thing as interfaith, I’m not saying I am against it . Hey I would like to get along with everybody friends, God all mighty is against it ,I’m not giving my personal opinion here it’s not my doctrine. I had nothing to do with the bringing about of Biblical texts and Bibical doctrine but that doctrine teaches one way, one true God only if you want to get mad or upset then get upset with him your not calling me a lair your calling God a liar when you refuse to believe him.
    1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    1 John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

    1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

    (1 Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils

    (2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness ) God is a jealous God he said I will have no other gods before me.

    (1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.)

    ( 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist )

  • Boris bear

    Lies like a rug. What BS; however, taking in the context of Obama’s background as a
    Muslim, it is understandable that he is coddling the Muslims. Oh, no, they’re not
    terrorists who behead, kill, destroy, and steal. Sounds like the Prince of Darkness
    is at work throughout the world.

            Basically Progressives have grown up with the narrative that Christianity is evil and personally they hate it, so they are pushing Islam not knowing they are inviting “real evil” the like they have never seen before, but also there is a part of them that know better, but they are hoping to use them to bring about a One World Order just like Hitler did:


            “Islam is more superior than the Jews, than the Christians, than the Buddhist, than the Hindus. The only law Allah accepts is Islam, and whoever seeks any other law apart from Islam, will never be accepted. And the Christians are Kuffars (infidels), and you may say to yourself, “No, no, no, they’re innocent!” No Kuffar (infidel) is innocent!” -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxCzwz7zTco&feature=share&list=PLFBBDB57F554BB8B1


          • Haqodeshim

            For clueless Progressives, they’ll say there is no differences in religion, and then they’ll push Islam saying how evil Christianity is, clueless of history itself:


            in the 8th century (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/20/Age_of_Caliphs.png/600px-Age_of_Caliphs.png), the Islamic armies were already invading Europe, hence Charles Martel’s response of a defensive army(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Martel), and the Arab–Byzantine Wars and the Seljuq-Byzantine Wars and the recent decisive defeat of the Byzantine army by Seljuk Turks at Manzikert in 1071, really set the stage for the response of the coming “Crusades” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades), so it wasn’t like the Catholic Church decided “Hey, we’re bored, let’s go kill some heathens in the name of God.” The crusaders comprised military units of Roman Catholics from all over western Europe, and were not under unified command (again cite wiki). So this was a reaction to an existing threat, and just as the Islamic Army’s appealed to “Allah” for justification and victory, so a largely Bible illiterate Europe appealed to a God they mostly knew through Icons, not scripture, since they didn’t have access to it. If you want to say this is “Christian” from a “cultural” aspect of past history, then okay, but it is not Christian as we know if from the early NT.

          • Haqodeshim

            Basically you are seeing how WW II came about after WW I; Progressives and the Politically Correct are not without some education, but it’s the perspective that “I have a degree and now know BETTER than you” – it’s an arrogance, there is no humbleness that in acquiring more education, they now realize just how IGNORANT they are, and so there is no humility, no Socratic moment of realizing that for all your wisdom and what you know your IGNORANCE is vastly greater.

            No, in their minds they have ARRIVED! Where as for Christians following in the steps of Christ, we know we NEVER arrive in this lifetime, that we are always growing and learning in our relationship with our omniscient and infinite God.

            So instead of responding to the threat of Hitler sooner, the way our Founding Father’s might have when confronting tyranny, Progressives tried to use Progressive Tyranny by appeasing it, believing they could evolve it, and instead ended up having to go to all out war, and were saved by a nation still rooted in its Patriotism and Constitution. Progressives by this time already thought the Constitution was old and needed to be replaced; they thought they could evolve the nation towards this goal, instead of using Hitler and Stalin’s hammer tactics of revolution, instead they thought evolution through Government and the education system, and later learning to use the Media for the same goals.

            Now you are seeing them play the same game with the Jihadists as they did Hitler, believing that in time they can evolve the backward little religious man, the same way they have done Americans in the US out of their former backward ways through the mass media and education system and then setup crony corrupted capitalism by pitting their greed and envy of the classes, so you have a divided states of American instead of United. For the Muslims they push Democracy instead of a Republic and then use their thirst for power and greed to help evolve them from their more backward ways, this way a Progressive front can come and take power the same way the Muslim Brotherhood did in Egypt.

            However, their end game will not help them, and in the short term they are risking WW III and in the long term setting up the Muslim to dominate the globe by their stupidity -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3X5hIFXYU&feature=share&list=PLFBBDB57F554BB8B1

            Basically if the Tea Party doesn’t wake up the general populous, and take power away from the 50% of the 1% in DC in the next 5 to 10 years, we are going to see the downfall of our Republic same as happened to the Romans, and we are already more than half way there.

            B.O. is not Thomas Jefferson. He again is using Taqiyya – Islamic Deception – we have been at war with Islam since our Republic’s inception:

            In addition, these “pirates” randomly raided towns on the coasts of Europe and captured people, bringing them back to North Africa to ransom or sell into slavery. They even came so far as the shores of America to capture settlers, to bring them back to Africa to ransom or sell. They especially prized young women and children who could be used as concubines or made into eunuchs. Over a million Europeans and Americans were sold into slavery during the 200-year reign of the Muslim “Barbary Coast” rulers.

            Many European countries wanted this to stop, of course, to which the leaders of the North African countries replied, “All you have to do is pay us a certain amount of money annually, and we will not attack ships from your country.” Many European countries paid the tribute. It was cheaper than going to war. Of course, that was a short-term, self-defeating solution, since paying the tribute made the North African Muslim countries more powerful and more capable of terror, plunder, and mayhem.

            The United States was paying this tribute also. This bothered Jefferson. It just so happened that while he was an ambassador in France, Jefferson met with John Adams (then the American ambassador to Britain) and together the two men met with the ambassador from Tripoli (one of the North African Muslim pirate countries). Jefferson and Adams sat down to talk with this man. They asked him why Tripoli attacked ships. Why attack the United States? They had no previous interactions. Why the hostility? Why did they choose America as an enemy?

            The Tripoli Muslim ambassador was very straightforward. He said, basically, “That’s what we do. We are commanded to do so by Allah.” Jefferson later wrote that the Tripoli ambassador told him, “It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to Paradise.”

            Completely taken aback by this revelation, Jefferson decided to look into the matter further, and did the one thing everyone should do: He read the Koran. He learned what Islam was about.

            And when he became president, he expanded and then mobilized the United States Navy to protect American ships from Muslim piracy and then sent Marines to the shores of Tripoli, who soundly defeated the Muslim warriors. This brought an end to the “Barbary Coast Pirates.” This was the first foreign war fought by the U.S. and military aggressiveness of Islamic countries remained contained and weakened for over a century.

            It’s amazing what a little accurate information can do.

    Islam means submission, so as long as you submit you won’t be killed. Obama is not at war personallly with Islam because he is muslim. He does not relate to the American people, he lives in la la land.

  • There are certain events that have to happen before God’s people have peace.


  • Ask yourself WHY Islam is now proliferating here in America, especially with our true 1600’s Christian Colonial foundations in mind? There has to be a defining moment in history when America’s Christian course was altered and which allowed Islam to prosper here in America.

    That point in history was in 1787 when the late 1700’s founders replaced the 1600’s governments of, by, and for God, based upon His immutable moral law, for their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people, based upon Enlightenment and Masonic concepts.

    More specifically, when the late 1700 founders replaced the First Commandment (as found intact in some of the 1600 Colonial Constitutions) with the First Amendment’s First Commandment-violating Free Exercise Clause, America was quickly transformed from what had been a predominately monotheistic Christian nation to arguably the most polytheistic nation (including Islam and its god Allah) to exist.

    The lying devil Obama, on behalf of his Jewish Illuminati Freemason Zionist globalist masters, seeks to deceive the whole world. As long as we give this bum a platform, he will spread his demonic lies endlessly. When we cease to listen to anything he says, he becomes impotent.

    All those of the lie, serve the devil, the father of lies, and ruler of this world. That defines most of the 7.0 billion people alive on the planet today. But not for much longer. In two short years, all will change forever. It turns out that the Bible is, and always has been 100% true and trustworthy, and Obama is proving it here once again. We’re at the end. This won’t go on much longer.

  • Deluded is as Deluded says and Obama has been deluded since he came on the scene, living in some Leftist Commie Utopia that has and never will exist. I am against abortion, but I do wish Obama could go back to his mother’s womb and be aborted, that is one most of the world would have agreed with, just like if Hitler could be aborted to prevent his insanity. Ahhhh, still can dream for free! But for how long?
