The second week of September is always difficult, well not always – it has been difficult for the last 13 years, since September 2001. Almost everyone remembers president Bush speech in which he said the Islam is the religion of peace, and maybe the same thought had passed in the mind of the current president last weekend.
Obama’s ISIL speech made one false accusation and labeled the fighters of the Islamic state (ISIL, or ISIS if you want), for some reason the president wants to deny this group of people the only one thing that they truly are – Islamic.
How can an American president even start to give out marks for religious capabilities to anyone? from when did the main job of politicians start with correcting the names by which we can groups of people who are united in a common cause (as wrong and as prevent as it might seem to them, or us).
So we find ourselves, 13 years later, with the same distracting and fully wrong message ringing in our ears – the exact opposite of the evident truth is told to the masses in hope that they will take the bait and… keep calm and carry on?
It does not work any more, even fanatic dazed neo-liberals (ones that prefer full rights to the religious and reduced rights to secular) everyone knows that this fight is about religion, that its main purpose and call is for religion – and much more than that, these Islamic fighters now in middle east are in fact reenacting the same path of the historic birth of Islam, if the prophet would have arrived today he would find in them the perfect partners to share the prophecy, in this sense these people are (to Islam) perfect believers.
So please, first out of the respect for the intelligence of the general population and second for the simple idea of understanding who you are facing – say the truth, ISIL is everything but not Islamic, it is as Islamic as it gets.
