It’s probably just a misunderstanding. That was the case with the phrase “Islamist terrorism’ vanishing from the White House video of comments made by French President François Hollande at the fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

I, like so many others, wrongly assumed that the deletion of those words from the soundtrack of the video was intentional — that Obama, who is loath to refer to radical Islam by name, was responsible for expurgating the Islamophobic slur.

The real explanation, it turns out, was a technical glitch. That was the narrative advanced by the administration after a number of news outlets reported the incident.

It stands to reason, therefore, that the video embedded in the following tweet shows something other than a rally in which Muslims chant “With Allah’s help, we shall conquer you.”

If in fact the demonstration shown is as the Twitter messenger suggests, it calls to mind an earlier march down a different German street. World conquest was a theme then, too.
