Skip to comments.Homeland Security Chief: We won’t call Chattanooga ‘Islamic terrorism’ out of respect for Muslims

Why wont the Obama administration call Fort Hood Islamic Terrorism? Why arent they calling Chattanooga Islamic Terrorism? Because its disrespect to Muslims and Islam is about peace:
ARUTZ SHEVA Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced the policy this past Friday at Aspen Institutes annual security forum in Washington, D.C. He explained that though it was a Muslim terrorist who shot to death four unarmed Marines in Tennessee two weeks ago, the government will call the attack, and other similar ones, violent extremism and not Islamic terrorism out of respect for the Muslim community.
Johnson said it is critical to refrain from the Islamic label in order to build trust among Muslims.
The Tennessee murderer, Mohammad Abdulazeez, is officially a homegrown violent extremist, according to the government even though he blogged about his Islamic religious motivations for the attack. He and his family also attended a local mosque controlled by a terror-tied Islamic trust.
Johnson explained that if officials called Islamic terrorism Islamic, theyd get nowhere in gaining the cooperation of the Muslim community.
The moderator of the panel tried to protest: Isnt [the] government denying the fundamental religious component of this kind of extremism by not using the word Islamic?
I could not disagree more, Johnson responded, and explained that Islam is about peace.

Heck, its not even extremism, really. It is simply Muslims taking their religion very, very seriously and trying to walk in the footsteps of Muhammad. Now there is an extreme component to it, as some believe the time is now to wage Jihad and others believe that time will come when their Mahdi returns. But thats just a matter of when, not what.
Somebody needs to explain to this clown that the Muslims will NOT respect us — for being weak.
This mutt is either completely delusional or an agent of Islam. Even Muslims don't believe that bullshit.
If Johnson's position 'wins', we are lost.
He is muslim. Explain a lot?
Was watching the movie Fury the other day. If obama was president in 1940s he wouldn’t be declaring war against Germany and Japan so they won’t be offended.
...and this idiot is the head of “homeland security”???? This truly is Bizzaro World.
Jeh? Rhymes with “meh”. Johnson is an appropriate name for this guy. He won’t call it ‘Islamic terrorism’, but we will.
And we won’t call the DHS chief an asshole out of respect for assholes!!
The Feds during the Bush administration (circa 2006) along with the media decided that Islamic terrorism would not be called that anymore. That was about six months after the UK government decided to do so.
I like this approach....(WAIT)
So, the next time a crazy fool shoots up a church, ‘THEY’ will be extra careful to not blame ALL Whites for the attack.
The next time some idiot fires a gun and kills an ‘innocent bystander’, ‘THEY’ will not claim that ALL law abiding gun owners are just murderers waiting for the chance to murder someone.
Still waiting for ‘OUR PEOPLE’ to start using the Supreme Court to demand a Concealed Carry Permit issued by one state is good in all.
That is the premise they used to shove gay marriage down our throats.
These present day wordsmiths are making Clintons ‘depends on the meaning of is’ look like 2nd grade material.
To be politically correct is to be delusional.
We don’t have a chance with people like this in charge.
No, of course not: they will blame all whites. The absolution of blame only applies to moslems.
Jeh Johnson is a male version of the noxious Susan Rice, in other words a “Paid Liar” who thinks he is serving his president with honor and distinction.
mohammed was a caravan and city raider who stole, raped, murdered men, sold boys and women and girls into slavery. His youngest of many wives was 9 years old. AQ and ISIS are not doing anything mohammed did not do first.
