Counterterror Adviser Defends Jihad as ‘Legitimate Tenet of Islam’

Counterterror Adviser Defends Jihad as ‘Legitimate Tenet of Islam’

The president’s top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” arguing that the term “jihadists” should not be used to describe America’s enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”

He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not “terrorism,” because terrorism is a “tactic,” and not terror, because terror is a “state of mind” — though Brennan’s title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word “terrorism” in it. But then Brennan said that the word “jihad” should not be applied either.

“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children,” Brennan said.

I have mentioned on many occasions that I believe the entire administration of Barack Hussein Obama to be morons. I am now even more convinced of that.

Brennan defined the enemy as members of bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network and “its terrorist affiliates.”

But Brennan argued that it would be “counterproductive” for the United States to use the term, as it would “play into the false perception” that the “murderers” leading war against the West are doing so in the name of a “holy cause.”

Brennan is simply echoing the words and beliefs of his *master*, Barack Hussein Obama.

The Obama administration appears to be backing away from the phrase “global war on terror,” a signature rhetorical legacy of its predecessor.

In a memo e-mailed this week to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department’s office of security review noted that “this administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror’ [GWOT.] Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’” SOURCE

This administration is led by the most GUTLESS individual to ever hold the office of president!

I do NOT hold back on my beliefs or opinions. I am fully convinced that Obama is;

1. Aiding and abetting the enemies of this nation
2. Determined to bring this nation to it’s knees financially
3. Determined to bring this nation to it’s knees militarily
4. Determined to force his socialist/Marxist beliefs ON this nation
5. Allied with the Islamic jihadists that seek to attack and destroy this nation
6. Is himself a Muslim (stealth) and is NOT a citizen of this nation.
7. Will do all in his power to give this nation TO Islam

I am sure there are many more points that can be added to this list, I’m only posting the obvious.

And to top matters off, the story is breaking about Rahm Emanuel asking former POTUS Bill Clinton to make a job offer to Joe Sestak. SOURCE

The point being, when all things are considered, the administration of Barack Hussein Obama is corrupt, evil, inept and in many cases, just plain stupid! That’s MY opinion, and I believe this assessment is applicable all the way up the chain of command, to the president himself.

The Obama administration is afraid of offending our enemies. They are afraid of offending the ILLEGALS that are invading this nation. They are afraid to enforce the laws of this nation. They are afraid to allow states like Arizona to enforce the laws that need to be enforced to protect the LEGAL citizens of this nation. They are afraid of everything in this world except the one thing they truly should be afraid of, and that is the American voter.

Barack Hussein Obama and his band of brigands are about to face a day of reckoning, and he will throw anyone he feels necessary under the bus if it will help him to maintain what he perceives to be HIS image of a good and righteous leader. He will sacrifice this entire nation and everyone in it to maintain HIS self image of Barack Hussein (Barry Soetoro) Obama.

This is what America gets for electing a Chicago ‘hood rat that was nothing more than a socialist and a community organizer. We got an individual that adapted well and became a Chicago crook. Then we got all of his fellow crooks in the bargain as well.

I hope Obama voters are feeling really SICK right about now!

    I see the people who are disseminating this bull shit as nothing more than ass kissers of Islam/TRAITORS to America. Damn the whole lot of them to deepest pits of hell!

    What we are seeing with the Obama regime is the marriage of Marxism with Islam. Both have the goal of bringing down the United States, so for the time being they are helping each other in their efforts. Should they achieve that objective, I am sure they will be fighting each other for final control. But for now the commies and the ragheads are buddies. The goal of We The People is to fight them tooth and nail by every means possible. All that side with Obama or Islam are enemies to a free republic. They are traitors. Brennan is but one of them. Had I any say, he would be terminated with extreme prejudice as anyone who agrees with the tennants of Marxism and/or Islam is planning only destruction for these United States.

    Wonder if he’ll still think they are a legitimate “tenet” when the stick a scimitar about 10 inches up his ass and then use it to cut his stoooopid head off. I swear, where does this black ass muslim turd get these people from??!!!!! 5 months and counting, and then, I hope to God somebody will have the balls to start impeachment proceedings. It can’t come any too soon.

    “They are afraid of everything in this world except the one thing they truly should be afraid of, and that is the American voter.”

    Fred, that’s because the American voter has NOT given the bastards ANYTHING to be afraid of. There should have been 5 million of’em, standing outside the capitol with guns and nooses when this half breed muslim turd first started to take over the auto industry.Then he started on the insurance and banking company’s while his administration was staffed with people that’d make al capone look good. THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT AFRAID, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WON’T DO SHIT for fear of being labeled by the ass suckin media as trouble makers, and they fall for it.

    I have honestly, never truly hated anyone in my entire life, but I’m there. I seriously despise that POS!

  7. comment number 7 by: Bloviating Zeppelin

    This administration is simply a dangerous one for a myriad of reasons. I’m not so sure it’s particularly Islamic-promoting as it is IGNORANT and AFRAID.

    It is a timid administration that lives in fear of insulting or offending darker-melaninic organizations and nation-states. And it is truly in keeping with its base and fundamental philosophies of “community organizing” and, in my opinion, of its attempting at actually enable the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It is an administration that is defeatist at heart, Leftist at heart, Socialist at heart, naive at heart, and DISbelieves in the true exceptionalism of America.

    This is sad indeed but, of course, in complete keeping with the tenets of PC words and phrases. Perhaps one day “terror” and “conflict” will be eliminated and replaced with “scowling” and “unpleasantry.”

    I can’t help but wonder, how long would this muslim bastard last in another country with his moronic ideals. Lets box him up and ship his worthless ass to china right along with posner.

    …..described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,â€? but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.â€??????

    What, is this man insane? Terrorists are urged to kill us in the name of their God. How much more religious can that be? Obama is a Muslim and he has picked his minion from all the anti-American people he can find. This is the most dangerous administration since our constitution was created. It was once said that America would destroy herself from within. I believe this administration is the one meant to do that very thing….that and political correctness…. We Americans need to fight as hard as we can against this onslaught….and we need to come out the other end of this destroy-America-tunnel more intelligent and able to put people in charge of our nation who aren’t intent on corrupting and changing our constitution, on attempting to ruin our nation. We need leaders who hold our values as dear as we do. Obama has clearly shown he does not hold anything American dear and is hell-bent on turning American into another Islamic nation.

    So who crashed the aircraft in to the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11 then, was it folks complaining about ” dry counties ” where sales of Beer are restricted ? Brennan is just a mouthpiece for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, he should f*ck off to Riyadh Saudi Arabia and stay there, what’s his problem the price of hookers too high in Saudi ?

  12. comment number 12 by: Adrian Wainer

    President Ronald Reagan’s attitude to the USSR is the only intelligent way of dealing with the Saudis and the rest of the Islamist thrash, that makes any sense. NB I draw a distinction between conservative traditionalist Muslims like Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani who support Western norms and the Islamists such as Wahhabis, Islamonazis and Islamofascists.

    If one was suggest a comparable situation in 1940 to having Obama in the White House in 2010, one might imagine what could have happened had Charles Lindbergh been President in 1940.

    Fred…have a good Memorial Day! We, in this county, are in the unfortunate position of having a person who is a vicious and committed enemy of the United States in the drivers seat, with all the presidential power and resources at his disposal. The Obama and his minions may be morons but they are still a cancerous tumor eating our American body from within.

    Fred, as usual you’re right on and I say…for Memorial Day, may God Bless you and yours.
