Proving once and for all that John Kerry is clinically insane.
Islamic State not Islamic? Kerry, Obama questioned over ISIS claims
Secretary of State John Kerry insisted Thursday that the Islamic State is not Islamic, underscoring the effort to distinguish the terror group from mainstream Muslims – but also causing consternation that the administration may once again be underplaying the threat of radical Islam.
“They’re not a state, and they do not represent Islam,” Kerry said in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Of course. ISIS or ISIL does not represent Islam any more than George Soros represents Leftist cash.
Or crocodiles represent teeth.
“Islam is as Islam does” — as I have insisted for years — exists because it happens to be a fundamental truism.
Kerry almost became judgmental for a moment, but corrected himself thankfully:
At several points during the hearing, Kerry sought to describe the group in other terms. He called them a “militant cult masquerading as a religious movement.” At another point in the hearing, he used the phrase “Islamic radical groups” but immediately corrected himself.
“Islamic is the wrong word — radical religious extremists,” he clarified.
Thanks for the clarification.
