Stateside, the American media is abuzz as to why Obama did not appear or at least send a high-ranking US official to the rally. It seems simple – because Obama and his team deny that Muslim terrorism exists. His public position is that all this killing is a criminal matter, by those who misuse the Muslim label but who kill despite their religion, not because of it. Of course deep down he doesn’t really believe this nonsense. He knows full well the violence-drenched history of Islam since its founding, and its spread through murderous conquest. He understands the religious directive to violent jihad. But he will not publicly admit any of this. His posture is to deny the connection between Islam and violence. After all, in the face of a clear example of Muslim murderous jihad in the attack on the soldiers at Ft. Hood, Obama and his people denied Islam was a factor and called it “workplace violence.” This charade would be hilarious if not so tragic. So why would Obama, raised a Muslim, join a march against Muslim mass murder jihad when he has denied the existence of that very thing in the United States?
