How a real leader talks to Islamists in one easy profanity (Video)

“Here in the United States, (where we lost over 2,000 souls to Islamist terrorists – or have we forgotten?),” writes Allen B. West Editor-in-Chief Michele Hickford, “our leaders can’t find within themselves the courage to mention the word ‘Islam’ let alone harshly condemn those who perpetrate such acts or seek to subvert our way of life.”

It’s true. Consider President’s Obama’s prepared statement on the Charlie Hebdo shootings. He said:

I strongly condemn the horrific shooting … that has reportedly killed 12 people. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this terrorist attack and the people of France at this difficult time. France is America’s oldest ally, and has stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States in the fight against terrorists who threaten our shared security and the world.

Shorter Obama: Blah-blah-blah ad infinitum. The only thing missing from his statement was the word Islamist. (Acceptable substitutes would have included “Muslim,” “Islam,” “Islamic,” “jihad,” or “jihadist,” but Obama was content to call them “terrorists” with no further description.)

So how does a real leader address these butchers who kill in the name of Islam? Here is Moroccan-born Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, himself a Muslim … on live TV yet:

It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom. But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake pack your bags and leave. If you do not like it here because some humorists you don’t like are making a newspaper, may I then say you can f*** off.

“It is refreshing,” Hickford writes, “when voices of courage ring out from within the Muslim community.” Is it ever!
