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
