A political commentator wrote, "Last year Obama made a statement during a 9/11 event in which he said 's Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam.” Maybe the president needs to remind Islam about this because they certainly don’t seem to know. It is worth noting the number of terror attacks during the Obama presidency in which he has tried to pursue a soft policy toward Islamists nd withdraw American power fom abroad which the President seems tgo blieve is respoinsible for the rise of Islamic rerrorism.
The President and the mainstream media tries to catgorize these atacks as work place violence or random acts of violence, anything to convince americans that they are not Islamic terrorism. ThePreident even refuses to use the term. It is useful to compile a list of these attacks since the President's inaguration (January 2009) and in particular compare them to the terror attacks during the Bush presidency which President Obama inists is the root of Islamic terrorism. And only a few weeks after the Boston Marathon bombing brags that since he took office, “there have been no large-scale attacks on the United States” (May 23, 2013). He also assure us that 99.9 percent of Muslims reject terrorism.

Fort Hood, Texas (November, 2009): Fort Hood massacre: Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 14 unarmed service men and women and wounded over 40 others. The media generally reports the death toll as 13 because one was an unborn baby. Only Planned Parenthood and their fervent supporters don’t count the unborn as people. Hasan has been linked to al-Qaeda. The Obama White House insisted that this was 'work-place violence', seking to desguise the tead increasing number of such incidents during the Presidents Administration. This allowed him to later brag that his administration had prevented major terror attacks in America. Time Magazine covered the attack with "Terrorist?" over Hasan's face on the front cover. A chilling example of how the mainstream media blindly followed the Obama work-place violence narative.

They showed their graditude by detonating two pressure cooker bombs turning the Marthon into a bloodbath, killing three people and injuring 264 others.

The President tells us, that it is 'POSSIBLE' that terrorism may have been involved. Not a word about Islam. He immediately launched into a tirade promoting gun contol legislation, not mentioning tht California hss very strict gun control laws. Universal background checks Obama wants to implement, are already the law in California. California also has strict magazine limits and plenty of so-called “gun free zones”.
Piladelphia, Pennsylvania (January 7, 2016): Edward Archer of Yeadon late at night flagged down Philadelphi police officer Jesse Hartnett and tham rushed the police cruiser shoting Officer Hartnett , critically injuring him. Archer in poice custody confessed to the crime, saying he did it 'in the name of Islam.' Commissioner Richard Ross said there was no indication from the suspect, 30-year-old , that he was involved in a conspiracy. Archer had pledged his allegiance to ISIS, officials say. Ross called the shooting 'an attempted assassination of a police officer'"
Also at the news conference, Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney said perdictably in typica PC language that the shooting had nothing to do with 'being a Muslim or the Islamic faith'. It is unclear towhat extent the Mayor has studied Islam. This is in line with Obama trying to explain away these attacks as 'Work place violence'. His new line is the need for gun control. Mayor Kenney did not explain how if Islam has mothing to do with these attcks, there are so many attcks by Muslims.
Ross said tht the gun used in the shooting was a police firearm that was previously stolen from a home. That officer had been disciplined, Ross said. And of course stricter gun control legislation would not have prevented this sooting. Surveillance images show a man in Muslim atire, identified as Archer, approaching the driver's side window of Officer Jesse Hartnett's vehicle. The gunman pointing a gun at Hartnett's vehicle, while another shows what appears to be the muzzle flash as he fires. Another image shows the gunman with his arm in the vehicle.
There was no advance warning to the officer. The gunman just began firing. Hartnett, 33, is a 5-year veteran of the force. He suffered extensive injuries to his arm, but authorities say he was awake and alert prior to that surgery. Archer fired 13 shots, three of which hit Hartnett in the arm. Hartnett was able to return fire, striking the suspect three times. "I just have to tell you, when you look at the video - we have video that captured all of this - it's one of the scariest things I've ever seen," said Ross. "This guy tried to execute the police officer. It's amazing he's alive." The moments immediately following the shooting were also captured in a dramatic recording of police radio calls. "I'm shot! I'm bleeding heavily!" Hartnett can be heard saying.
