Muslims hail Obama’s disconnect of terror from Islam

Ignore this Quran. It has nothing to do with Islam. As US President Barack Obama’s reach-a-Muslim plan thrusts forward, some Muslims hail the effort, by pointing out that Muslim terrorists are just like any other, non-existent non-Muslim terrorists:

Osman Mirghani, the deputy editor-in-chief of ‘Al-Sharq Al-Awsat,’ which is owned by a Saudi Arabian company and published in London, wrote an op-ed last week under the headline "Why Didn’t Obama Mention Islam?." The Obama administration has broken from the Bush government’s policy of using the term “Islamic terrorism” in official documents and "no longer [is] responding to extremist voices" that call for targeting home countries of terrorists, he explained.

He said the president is carrying out his pledge in his “reaching out to Muslims speech” at Cairo University in June 2008. Regarding Obama’s statements on the botched Times Square bombing, the editor praised President Obama for not once referring to prime suspect Faisal Shahzad’s being Muslim and for not “mentioning Islam in discussing the terrorist operation."

OBAMA’S ACTIONS ARE good news for Arabs – and bad news for everyone else. No, not because all Muslims are terrorists – but because most terrorists are Muslim. United States President should recognize the connection between Islam and terror – not to discriminate against a group, but to make the group confront itself. There will be no end to terror, unless peaceful Muslim communities around the world recognize the cancer within themselves and act against it.

In a completely unrelated news, two Israelis were shot at by terrorists near West Bank settlement of Ofrah. The religion of the assailants is unclear:

Two Israelis, a man and a woman, were lightly wounded near the Police Junction near Ofra Friday evening, in a shooting attack apparently carried out by Arab terrorists. The two entered Ofra in their car after being hurt by flying glass as a result of shots fired at the car. They received medical attention on the spot.

According to PA news agency Ma’an, a Fatah terrorist faction took responsibility for the attack. A statement by the “Al Aqsa Martyrs” said that the shooting was a protest against the opening of talks between Israel and the PA, and also to exact revenge for the shooting of a PA Arab youth whose body was found near Ramallah Friday morning.

‘Al Aqsa Martyrs’. No connection to Islam whatsoever.
