When Obama says ISIS is not Islamic – that’s news to ISIS.
What are they doing that isn’t prescribed in the Quran? Killing nonbelievers? That’s in Quran 2:191-193. Beheadings? Muhammad himself commanded that against hundreds of Jews. Killing gays? Just turn to Quran 7:80-84.
The leader of ISIS himself, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has a Ph.D in Islamic Studies – do we really think Obama knows more about Islam than he does?
Here’s someone else who thinks ISIS is Islamic: Sheikh Adel Al Kalbani, the former imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca. In the video below, obtained via The Gateway Pundit Al Kalbani outlines why “ISIS has the same beliefs as we do.”
The only difference he seems to see between the ideology of ISIS and his own is how punishment should be carried out.The Muslims of the Islamic State he lives in, Saudi Arabia, are slightly more “humane” in that they carry out beheadings with swords instead of knives, apparently.
