College Student Munther Omar Saleh Arrested in Queens, NY … Supporting Islamic Terrorism & Plotting Terror Attack in NYC
FEDS ARREST MUSLIM COLLEGE STUDENT IN QUEENS, NY …
20 year old college student Munther Omar Saleh has been arrested by the federal authorities in Queens, NY for platting to commit a terror attack in New York City. According to court reports, in September, Saleh posted a message on Twitter that said Al Qaeda was “getting too moderate”, and in February, a message praising the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, “for their high end videos, great weaponry and quality fighters”. Saleh is a student at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens. The complaint also states, that on May 7, “Saleh emailed himself information from the Internet regarding the construction of a pressure cooker bomb.”
The father claims that his son was set up and was doing simple internet searches like any other 20 year old. Yup, just like any other Muslim sympathizer doing searches of pressure cookers, how to make bombs, firearms, ammunition, drones, bullet proof vests and NYC tourist attractions. Oh yeah, and he endorsed the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot and the beheading of a Chinese journalist. Yup, just your typical misunderstood kid.
Munther Omar Saleh
According to court documents, the 20-year-old espoused jihadist beliefs online and openly supported ISIS activities via Twitter, including the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France, the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot and the beheading of a Japanese journalist. He also allegedly tweeted support for the terror attack in Garland, Texas in May.
Saleh landed on federal authorities’ radar after allegedly loitering on the George Washington Bridge on two consecutive days in March, Carlin reported. He was spotted by a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officer, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
A further investigation into Saleh’s activities uncovered possible plans to detonate an explosive device in New York City on behalf of the terror group, court documents said.
Investigators claim he also used his personal computer to search topics ranging from weapons and pressure cookers, to eluding police and disguises.
The specific searches allegedly included, “construction of a pressure cooker bomb,” “firearms,” “ammunition,” “bulletproof vests,” “drones,” and “New York City landmarks and tourist attractions.”
In May, an informant posing as a terrorist sympathizer said he spoke to Saleh, who reportedly said “I’m in NY and I’m trying to do an Op.”
Radical Imam Anjem Choudary Says on Live TV that Pamela Geller She Should be Put to Death for Hosting Mohammed Cartoon Contest (VIDEO)
WELCOME TO ISLAM FREEDOM OF SPEECH …
If you missed it, watch below the amazing exchange from FOX News – Hannity between Radical London Imam Anjem Choudary and Pamela Geller. During the interview, Iman Choudary said that Pamela Geller should be brought in front of a Sharia court and put to death for her actions. That is correct, on LIVE TV Choudary called for the death of Geller and wanted her dead for deliberately hosting a cartoon contest that insulted the prophet Mohammad. The hell with free protected speech as afforded by the United States Constitution, this Iman wants Geller in front of a Muslim Sharia court and be put to death. Welcome to Islam, the religion of Peace.
After Geller had to listen to the vile threats from Choudary, it was her turn to talk; however, the radical Iman kept interrupting her. That was when Pam Geller had the line of the night and said to Anjem Choudary, “I’m talking, sir … I know you’re used to stepping over women but you’re not going to have it here.”
ARRESTS MADE IN ITALY FOR 2010 SUICIDE BOMB PLOT AGAINST THE VATICAN AND POPE BENEDICT XVI …
As reported at Reuters, Italian security forces have arrested 18 radical Islamic extremists Friday who prosecutors said were behind a failed 2010 plot to attack the Vatican as well as a bombing at a Pakistan market that killed more than 100 a year earlier. Prosecutor Mauro Mura stated in Cagliari, Sardinia that wiretaps indicated the suspected terrorists, including two former bodyguards for Usama bin Laden, planned a bomb attack at the Vatican and went as far as to send a suicide bomber to Rome.
Italian police were arresting 18 people on Friday suspected of belonging to an armed group linked to al Qaeda who were plotting attacks on the Vatican as well as in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Some of the suspects, who are all Pakistanis and Afghans, were arrested in early morning raids across Italy. Police burst into the home of the group’s suspected spiritual leader, in the northern city of Bergamo, a video released by them showed.
Though the suspects were plotting attacks mainly in their native countries, phone taps suggest the Vatican was also a target, said Mauro Mura, chief prosecutor of the Sardinian city of Cagliari, where the group based its headquarters.
In the tapped conversations, the suspects discuss “a big jihad in Italy,” added Mario Carta, head of the police unit on the case. They reference the word “baba”, which could mean the pope, Carta said.
“We don’t have proof, we have strong suspicion,” that the Holy See was a possible target, he added.
Raids were carried out simultaneously in seven different Italian provinces with arrest warrants for 18 suspected Islamic extremists following a lengthy investigation in Cagliari, capital of the Italian island Sardinia.
Authorities uncovered plans for a suicide bomber plot against the Vatican in 2010, when Pope Benedict XVI was pontiff. Evidence includes a “martyr’s vow” from a would-be suicide bomber threatening to strike against the Vatican, the spiritual focal point for the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics.
Mario Carta, an official from the counter-terror police force that carried out the raids, called it “one of the most important operations ever carried out in Italy.” Police said the operation targeted an “extremely well-structured terror network” based in Sardinia since at least 2005 that was made up of Pakistani and Afghan nationals.
Nine people have been arrested, and two are still at large in Italy. Seven of the suspects are believed to be in Pakistan, Carta said.
Chris Wallace Grills CIA Director John Brennan on ISIS & Iran … “Didn’t You Give the American People and the President Give the American People a False Sense of Confidence Back in 2012 about Our Fight Against Islamic Terrorists at a Time”
Chris Wallace asks, Director, can we really say ISIS is losing?
Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace interviewed CIA Director John Brennan and asked some very direct questions when it came to the treats from both Iran and ISIS. Wallace asked why the Obama administration refuses to call or enemy for what they are, “Islamic extremists” and why President Obama and John Brennan have rejected identifying them for what they are. Brennan replied that ISIS was simply “a corruption of the Islamic faith.” REALLY? Director Brennen might want to read the Koran. It is not a corruption of the Islam, it is an interpretation that many agree with.
Brennan said the vast majority of Muslims reject ISIS’ actions. Wallace then directly confronted Brennan over why he and the president won’t openly talk about “Islamic extremism.” He asked why the administration is “ignoring” confronting them like that.
Brennan simply insisted that “it is a corruption of the Islamic faith.”
Sadly, the CIA director sounded more like a shill for Barack Obama than truly understanding and caring about the safety and protection of the United States. There were far too many references to touting Barack Obama and John Kerry during this interview as compared to folks like formal CIA director General David Petraeus and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who are persona non grata with the Obama administration.
WALLACE: Do you really think that the U.S. and Iran share interests?
BRENNAN: I think what’s Daesh, ISIL has been doing in the region is something that is counter to U.S. interests as well as counter to Iranian interests. And the Iranians are now engaged with their Iraqi partners to try to push back these forces of terrorism inside of Iraq.
So, Iran does have an interest in preventing further Daesh, ISIL terrorist attacks. At the same time, I think they need to be responsible as far as what they’re doing inside Iraq and not further inflaming that situation.
WALLACE: But your immediate predecessor in this job, General David Petraeus, said this week Iran is not an ally. It’s part of the problem, not part of the solution. And Benjamin Netanyahu, when he spoke to Congress, said the enemy of your enemy is not your friend, he is your enemy. [...]
WALLACE: General Lloyd Austin, the head of the U.S. Central Command, told Congress recently that ISIS is losing. But ISIS is still dug into Iraq and Syria. They now have affiliates across North Africa. They were possibly responsible for these terrible attacks this week in Tunisia and Yemen.
Director, can we really say ISIS is losing?
BRENNAN: Clearly, ISIS momentum inside of Iraq and Syria has been blunted and it has been stopped. So, they are not on the march as they were several months ago. And so, our working with the Iraqis and the Iraqis now trying to push back against it, it is having some great, I think, progress.
At the same time, this phenomenon of Daesh throughout the entire region is something that we need to work with our partners. We see what’s happening in other countries, in these franchises that are blowing up in Libya and other areas. They — they’ve claimed responsibility for attacks in Tunisia and Yemen.
This is something that clearly is not just restricted to Iraq and Syria. So, we cannot relent. We have to continue working with our partners in the region.
WALLACE: Here is what you said in 2012.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BRENNAN: If the decade before 9/11 was the time of al Qaeda’s rise and the decade after 9/11 was the time of its decline, then I believe this decade will be the one that sees its demise.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
WALLACE: Director Brennan, weren’t you just flat wrong about that?
BRENNAN: No. And when we look at al Qaeda and we look at what has happened to al Qaeda and particularly the core of al Qaeda that was in the area of Afghanistan and Pakistan, they have taken some really big hits.
WALLACE: But — but, respectfully, sir, when you were saying this is the decade of al Qaeda’s demise, I don’t think most people thought you meant, well, yes, but there will be an offshoot called ISIS which spreads across the Middle East.
BRENNAN: This phenomenon that Daesh represents right now is a new one. It is one that has grown up in the past two years.
WALLACE: But it’s an offshoot of al Qaeda.
BRENNAN: We’ve done a lot against al Qaeda. We’ve been able to push them back. We’ve been able to prevent their attacks.
But there are these offshoots, as you say. This is a phenomenon that we’re going to have to deal with. And I do think over the next decade, this is going to be a long, hard fight.
WALLACE: I guess what I’m asking is didn’t you give the American people — and the president give the American people a false sense of confidence back in 2012 about our fight against Islamic terrorists at a time, perhaps not so coincidentally, when the president was running for reelection?
BRENNAN: What we said was al Qaeda was on the run. We said that al Qaeda was really bloodied and it was not the same organization that it was in 9/11, as well as in the years after that.
There was no sense that I think either I or the president or others gave to the American people that terrorism was going away. But we’ve made great progress against a lot of these groups that had plans in place to carry out attacks.
WALLACE: You talked recently of the ideology — your word — that fuels ISIS.
What is that ideology?
BRENNAN: It is a very twisted, perverted interpretation of a religion that they purport to represent, but in no way do they represent. It’s an ideology of violence. That’s what it is. It is not a religious ideology.
WALLACE: Well, Islam is certainly a part of it, isn’t it?
BRENNAN: They purport to be Muslims. But as I said, the overwhelming majority of Muslims throughout the world roundly denounce and condemn what they’re doing. And that’s why we should not give them any type of religious legitimacy.
WALLACE: This gets to your refusal and the president’s refusal to talk about Islamic extremism. (MORE)
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THIS MISLEADER COULDN’T BLAME ANYONE ELSE FOR HIS FAILURES AS PRESIDENT …
THE COMMUNITY AGITATOR IS AT IT AGAIN … In an interview with Vice News, Barack Hussein Obama was provided a soft ball interview with fellow Leftists. Fast forward to the 11:42 minute mark of the video below unless you want to annoy yourself and listen to Obama blather about global warming, his Unconstitutional acts and his terrible Iran deal. Obama is asked, how did ISIS become so popular, so fast? Barack Hussein Obama’s response was to blame Bush. Just curious, isn’t there a statute of limitations on blaming Bush? Obama said, “ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion. Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
NO YOU IDIOT … I THOUGHT YOU SAID ISIS WAS THE JV! Obama, you never took them seriously because you take nothing serious. YOU ARE TO BLAME FOR ISIS! INVASION? Mr. President, you are to blame for ISIS as ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of
our invasion Obama’s knee-jerk reaction to leave Iraq too soon and create a power vacuum that allowed the terrorist group to grow. How unbecoming of a president to just not admit fault. Sorry Barack, but the world is a less safe place since you have been president.
President Obama pinned the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on former President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq while calling for more investment in diplomacy and education to stop terrorism.
“Two things: one is, ISIL is a direct outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion,” Obama said in an interview with VICE News. “Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
Obama’s direct shot at Bush comes despite the fulfillment of his own campaign promises to pull troops out of Iraq. Obama completed the troop draw down in 2011 — an achievement the administration touted as a major victory but which left a power vacuum which ISIS is attempting to fill.
Fast forward to the 11:42
This is one sad and pathetic president.
REMEMBER HOW WE WERE TOLD THAT THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT PAY RANSOM FOR HOSTAGES …
As reported at the New York Times, your hard earned tax dollars financing Islamist terrorists. This is just another example that the US government has become too big to succeed. As stated in the article, it was just another in a long list of examples of how the United States, largely because of poor oversight and loose financial controls. In this case, the poor oversight and lack of attention to detail gives hard earned American tax payer dollars to the very evil radical Islamist terrorists we are looking to defeat. UNREAL.
Why does this sound exactly like the brilliance of ‘Fast & Furious’?
In the spring of 2010, Afghan officials struck a deal to free an Afghan diplomat held hostage by Al Qaeda. But the price was steep — $5 million — and senior security officials were scrambling to come up with the money.
They first turned to a secret fund that the Central Intelligence Agency bankrolled with monthly cash deliveries to the presidential palace in Kabul, according to several Afghan officials involved in the episode. The Afghan government, they said, had already squirreled away about $1 million from that fund.
Within weeks, that money and $4 million more provided from other countries was handed over to Al Qaeda, replenishing its coffers after a relentless C.I.A. campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan had decimated the militant network’s upper ranks.
The C.I.A.’s contribution to Qaeda’s bottom line, though, was no well-laid trap. It was just another in a long list of examples of how the United States, largely because of poor oversight and loose financial controls, has sometimes inadvertently financed the very militants it is fighting.
While refusing to pay ransoms for Americans kidnapped by Al Qaeda, the Taliban or, more recently, the Islamic State, the United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars over the last decade at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, some of which has been siphoned off to enemy fighters.
Documents Recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Compound in Recovered in Pakistan Reveal Iran Is Assisting Al-Qaeda & Has Worked With Terrorist Group For Years
And you wonder why Barack Obama is so pissed that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is speaking to Congress regarding Iran.
Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard has delivered a bombshell … Obama Admin Ignored Proof of Iran-Al Qaeda Link After UBL Raid. The Obama White House has been sitting on these documents for years as they now look to make a nuclear deal with Iran. Are you kidding me. Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program. You think? How on earth does any US President ignore such a terrorist tie and claim to be acting in the best interest of the United States? This is why Obama has been hell-bent on preventing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress and the American people. This has nothing to do with protocol issues, it is because Obama wants to make a deal with Iran at any cost. Barack Obama putting the “Hussein” in Barack Hussein Obama.
More striking is Iran’s support for al Qaeda. Last week, for the first time in nearly three years, the public saw new information from the bin Laden raid. Documents released as part of a terror trial in New York City show, in the words of the al Qaeda leaders themselves, Iran’s availability for training and safe haven. One letter from a senior al Qaeda operative to bin Laden in June 2010 lays out the plans of a core al Qaeda leader to travel to Iran. The letter notes that “Sheikh Yunis” is ready to travel and “the destination, in principle, is Iran. And he has with him six to eight brothers that he chose. I told him we are waiting for final complete confirmation from you to move and agree on this destination (Iran). His plan is: stay around for three months in Iran to train the brothers there then start moving them and distributing them in the world for their missions and specialties.”
This comes on top of what we already know about Iran and al Qaeda. As Thomas Joscelyn reported here last week, at least three al Qaeda plots targeting Western interests were hatched in Iran since Obama took office. As the administration pined for Iran to rejoin the community of civilized nations, the Treasury was churning out reports showing Tehran had no such interest. In its designation of Yasin al-Suri, “a prominent Iran-based al Qaeda facilitator,” Treasury wrote in December 2011: “Operating under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian Government, al-Suri moves money and al Qaeda recruits from the Middle East through Iran and on to Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
New unclassified documents recovered from from the Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan during the 2011 US Navy Seal team raid that killed UBL as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect show secret ties between Al Qaeda and Iran. Yes, that very Iran that President Barack Hussein Obama has been bending over backwards for trying to making a nuclear deal with has he throws our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, under the bus. It is becoming quite obvious now why Barack Obama and his minions have been trashing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his speech in front of Congress this coming Thursday as a preemptive strike to discredit him. What is Obama afraid of, Netanyahu will speak the truth?
This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.
More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.
While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.
The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.
Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.
According to the report, the administration has only analyzed 10 percent of the more than one million documents they recovered.
On “America’s Newsroom,” Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program.
He said the president wants to “decouple” the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program from the regime’s support for terrorist organizations.
Hayes said the initial “scrub” of the bin Laden documents by the CIA was very successful, producing 400 intelligence reports and leading to U.S. actions around the world against al Qaeda.
“Then it all stopped. The CIA basically sat on the documents. … I think it’s because the Obama administration didn’t want to know what was in them,” said Hayes, adding that the documents would have had “tremendous implications” for U.S. foreign policy overall.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicts John Kerry, Says 2014 Deadliest Year for Terror Ever Recorded
ARE YOU KIDDING ME, WHO FEELS SAFE FROM TERRORISM WITH THE JV IN THE WHITE HOUSE?
Less than 24 hours after Secretary of State John Kerry told a Foreign Affairs and State Department budget hearing that, “we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicted Kerry in a major way. It turns out according to Director Clapper that we are not safer than any time in the last century. As it turns out, 2014 was the deadliest year for terror, EVER!!!
“When the final accounting is done. 2014 will be the most lethal year in global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled. About half of all attacks including fatalities in 2014 occurred in just three countries, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
Fox News Martha MacCallum could only muster the following in stunned bewilderment, “I guess John Kerry did not get that message.”
Secretary of State John Kerry: Despite ISIS, “We Are Actually Living In A Period Of Less Daily Threat To Americans”
OK AMERICA, WHO HONESTLY BELIEVES THE FOLLOWING WORDS FROM JOHN “FRAUD” KERRY …
UNREAL … Barack Obama’s Secretary of State said the following yesterday, “Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are”. The partisan hack politician went on to say, we have had “less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century.” HUH, GO FIGURE. So in 1915 we had more terrorist threats and deaths than in 2015? Who feels safer today than they did 6 or 7 years ago? That’s it America, don’t believe your lying eyes, believe John Kerry.
What page from Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ does this come from … “If you lie to the people long enough, it because the truth. Especially with a complicit liberal propaganda media.
Maybe Kerry should have said, dating back to the time when President Jimmy Carter unleashed the radical Islam with the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979?
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: And frankly – and last thing, this is counterintuitive but it’s true: Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century. And so even the concept of state war has changed in many people’s minds, and we’re seeing now more asymmetrical kinds of struggles.
WHO KNEW, ACCORDING TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, ISLAMIST MURDERERS HAVE “LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCES”.
Barack Obama was at it again yesterday with his dangerous talk. Sorry folks, this is one delusional and dangerous president you have elected. Never in my lifetime has an American president so reviled his own country and defended the actions of those that would look to destroy America. Once again Barack Obama was quick to blame America and sympathize with radical Islam referencing the so-called “legitimate grievances” and justifies the actions of killers. How pathetically sad that we have the most non-serious president in office during such a serious time.
“There is a strain of thought that does not embrace ISIL tactics, but does buy into the notion the Muslim world has suffered historic grievances, some times is accurately,” Obama said. “It buys into the belief that flows from the conspiracy, by the idea that Islam is incompatible, that it is polluted by Western values. Those beliefs exist. In some communities around the world, they are widespread. It makes individuals, especially young people who may be disaffected are alienated more rife for radicalization.”
LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCES!!! Hey Barack, sometimes a banana is just a banana.
From Obama’s OPED, UNREAL.
More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.
Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies. Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.
Simply incredible, in his OPED, Obama some how manages to mention that the three individuals killed in North Carolina were Muslim, even though from all accounts so far that they’re being Muslim had nothing to do with why they were killed by Craig Stephen Hicks. Police have said that initial indications suggested the shooting stemmed from “an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking.” And he mentions the killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012, but some how Barack Hussein Obama can’t seem to find it in himself to call terrorists “radical Islam” or “Islamic terrorists”. The Obama White House could not say that 21 Egyptians beheaded by ISIS were Coptic Christians. Sorry folks, this is one community agitating, sick individual.
That pluralism has at times been threatened by hateful ideologies and individuals from various religions. We’ve seen tragic killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012 and at a Jewish community center in Kansas last year.
We do not yet know why three young people, who were Muslim Americans, were brutally killed in Chapel Hill, N.C. But we know that many Muslim Americans across our country are worried and afraid. Americans of all faiths and backgrounds must continue to stand united with a community in mourning and insist that no one should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship.
Our campaign to prevent people around the world from being radicalized to violence is ultimately a battle for hearts and minds. With this week’s summit, we’ll show once more that — unlike terrorists who only offer misery and death — it is our free societies and diverse communities that offer the true path to opportunity, justice and dignity.
Obama, addressing the Washington audience on the second day of the summit, said the international community needs to address “grievances” that terrorists exploit, including economic and political issues.
He stressed that poverty alone doesn’t cause terrorism, but “resentments fester” and extremism grows when millions of people are impoverished.
“We do have to address the grievances that terrorists exploit including economic grievances,” he said.
He also said no single religion was responsible for violence and terrorism, adding he wants to lift up the voice of tolerance in the United States and beyond.
EXIT QUESTION: OBAMA SAYS THAT THE WEST IS NOT AT WAR WITH ISLAM … BUT IS ISLAM AT WAR WITH THE WEST?
