McMaster suggests Trump won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ in speech in Saudi Arabia

26

“The president will call it whatever he wants to call it,” McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But I think it’s important that, whatever we call it, we recognize that [extremists] are not religious people.”

That’s an outright lie. All their writings and statements show that they’re deeply devout Muslims.

This is a throwback to the politically correct lies and half-truths that deformed our response to the Islamic jihad threat during the Obama years. President Trump had vowed to correct this. Now his national security adviser, who is just as willfully ignorant as Obama and his team, seems to have captured his mind. It looked for awhile as if Trump might actually identify the jihad threat correctly and counter it effectively. Now it looks as if he has lost the impetus to do so. The swamp creatures have won.

“McMaster suggests Trump won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ in speech,” by Max Greenwood, The Hill, May 20, 2017:

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster suggested that President Trump may abandon the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” in a scheduled speech in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

“The president will call it whatever he wants to call it,” McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But I think it’s important that, whatever we call it, we recognize that [extremists] are not religious people. And, in fact, these enemies of all civilizations, what they want to do is to cloak their criminal behavior under this fall idea of some kind of religious war.”

“But I think what the president will point out is the vast majority – the vast majority of victims from these people are Muslims. And of course the Muslim world is very cognizant of that, having born witness to and experienced directly this humanitarian catastrophe that’s going on across the greater Middle East and beyond.”

Trump frequently used the phrase “radical Islamic terror” on the campaign trail to describe Islamist extremists and militant groups. But the term has historically been avoided by presidents, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

In fact, McMaster himself has urged the president to refrain from using the phrase, arguing that violent extremists, such as ISIS militants, push a perverse view of Islam and that the phrase “radical Islamic terror” ultimately hinders U.S. goals, according to CNN.

In his speech on Sunday, Trump is expected to cast the fight against extremism as a “battle between good and evil,” rather than a religious war, while calling for unity with allies in the Islamic world.

    • VLParker

      McMaster is not interested in reality, only in his fantasies. Looks like Trump isn’t interested either. More groveling before the masterminds of 9-11. McMaster and Trump have their heads stuck so deep into the Empty Quarter that they are hallucinating and seeing a peaceful islam that doesn’t exist.

    The Swamp is superficiality.
    Censorship is with which Islam has found a conceptional method to use the structures of democracy.

    • Suresh

      Agree . As long as Trump does not stoop to level of politicians in EU/UK who are suppressing free speech to support jihadi criminals and islamisation of their country http://bit.ly/2r6F3cp

      Little give and take is ok to maintain business relations.

  • Chris Wolf

    We expect our president to be a gracious guest and, despite the foolishness of the braying donkeys in the media and the fragile little snowflakes in the streets, we know Trump can be gracious — while still being fun (unlike the stuffy, angry phony who preceded him.)

  • Trump can’t ban islam

    Good. Trump have it clear, USA will be an ally of moderate muslims. Saudi arabia is an ally of the USA, Trump knows it because his business are being protected by the saudi king. People from saudi arabia and other moderate islamic countries will always have free entrance to the USA. Saudi arabia involvement in 9/11 has no ground. 9/11 is a thing of the past, better not to reopen healed wounds. Make America Take Saudi Money Again

    • Rob Porter

      You are truly a liar and idiot! What “healed wounds”? Did Saudi Arabia apologize for the barbaric actions of its Muslim citizens in 9/11? Did it pay restitution to families whose members died in 9/11? If Saudi Arabia didn’t have oil and didn’t have influence in the region, not least against Iran, do you think the U.S. would take any notice of Saudi Arabia? The country is in a mess, poverty massive, 70 percent or more of it’s income from oil that is selling at a very low price.

      • tatka150

        Yes. The bunch of rich barbarian savages. Lyers, anti-semites and US haters. WTH Trump sells them weapon? TO kill us later? They even didn’t allow Jewish journalists to come and cover the trip!!!
        Trump should cancel this fkg trip because of it if he has any honor.
        Disgusting. They must pay reparations to US for 9/11 first. BIG TIME. As a first step to possible “good relationship”
        Trump has no guts any more. He should never stop in the capital of the terror from the first place. If we are at war with a radical pisslamist terrrrorists – proceed properly. Not to bend for their bloody “medal” and dance with their machetes among the murderers. Shame!.

        • Rob Porter

          Unfortunately, in the real world these are the games that are played. If any president should have begun a process of dealing with Saudi Arabia it should have been George W. Bush, but instead he allowed Saudis with connections to the 9/11 perpetrators to escape, then talked a load of disgusting bollocks about Islam being a religion of peace. Then came Obama who despite his vacuous claims to being a Christians is a Muslim and vile piece of characterless filth. Now there a National Security Advisor who talks utter rubbish about Muslim terrorists “perverting Islam”. McMaster is a the nut job!

          • tatka150

            Agree. They kicked out Flynn in order to replace him with this disgusting traitor, muzrat’s evil advocate. Is Trump blind?

          • Rob Porter

            Is Trump blind? Maybe, but I think it’s more a case of his not knowing enough about Islam. How many people bother to read the Qur’an and study Islam’s savage 1,400 years history? Not many, which is why so many – especially if they are afflicted with the political correctness and liberalism diseases – talk such utter drivel about Islam and Muslims.

            Write to Trump about not believing the rubbish that Islamic terrorists like ISIS “pervert Islam” and that they are not “religious”. I have, but thousands need to do so. Only then will he possibly take note. I’ve also written to McMaster – quite politely – to tell him that about Islam he ‘doesn’t know his arse from his elbow”!!!!

  • Rob Porter

    McMaster needs to go. He is either clueless about Islam or deliberately misleads regarding Islam in order to carry water for it. His statement reflects absolute ignorance of the Qur’an and Islam. “….we recognize that [extremists] are not religious people. And, in fact, these enemies of all civilizations, what they want to do is to cloak their criminal behavior under this fall idea of some kind of religious war.” His statement is stunningly stupid.

    • tatka150

      McMaster is ovomit’s holdover. Politically correct muzrat’s supporter. What dumpster Trump get him out of? Disgusting monster must go to hell. Trump visible moving in a different direction. He promised to make his first stop on his first international trip in Israel. We all remember it.
      When his leftist relatives/advisers helped him to change his mind, and to pay the respect first to S.A. -the best friends of US, 9/11 mastermind. It was deeply appreciated by saudis. The carpet was really red.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    mcmaster is dumb as a post in his assessment of where international focus is going. So far he is very good at being wrong, fortunately the lame stream media adore the stupid, he gets a lot of press.

  • gfmucci

    McMaster is a dumb old fart whose time has come and gone. He’s as read up on Islam as most 70-somethings are on the latest I-phone and Android.

  • Chris Wolf

    We can count on Trump not to pander and traffic in rhetorical BS like his drug-addict predecessor was prone to do.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    Some excellent fighting generals have very limited intellectual horizons.

  • McMaster is an Obamista.

  • Maranatha

    He was wrong,….again.

  • InfidelCrusader

    “But I think it’s important that, whatever we call it, we recognize that [extremists] are not religious people.”
    That would come as a surprise to the so called extremists. They believe that they’re demonstrating to the world just how devoutly religious they are. They believe that they’re following the dictates of Islam to the letter.

  • Kriemhild

    How can Trump choose such inept and really dangerous people for such high positions???
    None of his appointments are really ideal, and there are plenty of ideal, high class, in-the-know people around. He wants to go down the middle of the road attracting peple from the left and right thinking this will unite the country. For me he is a big disappointment.

  • Drew the Infidel

    I have four words for McMaster, abbreviated GTFO!

  • James Stamulis

    McMaster is one of the traitors around Trump that must be purged! He is a deep state shithead!

  • Oracle9

    Religious war? Pshaw! Merely criminal behavior, could happen anywhere. Don’t worry about the regular massacres, we are told that’s just part and parcel of life these days.

    The power of the $110Bn arms deals for the Wahhabists punctuates the USA’s official narrative. The warnings of a handful of counterjihadi speakers, if they are allowed a soapbox, are certainly no match for the worldwide political, industrial, academic, and media’s ongoing surrender to Islamic holy war.

  • jimmy

    I did not like the appointing of mcmaster decision from day one. that neocon is a bonified threat to our national security. for our sake Trump needs to get rid of him and get rid of him fast. hell give mattis the boot too he’s just as dangerous.
