In 2010, John Brennan, the current Director of the CIA, gave a speech extolling the beauty of Islam. I hope you’ll watch this three-minute clip.I’m not interested in contradicting Brennan’s opinion of the glorious aspects of Islam, or commenting on the fact he spoke fluent Arabic, and hoped “Insha’Allah” to study it again one day. What concerns me most about this speech is that a senior member of our National Security team, and now currently the CIA director, referred to the capital of Israel in the first instance not as Jerusalem — but as Al Quds. That is a blatant slap and disrespect to our ally in the Middle East, the State of Israel.
If that is the sentiment within the Obama administration, then it more than explains why current Secretary of State John Kerry is negotiating a ceasefire on behalf of an Islamic terrorist organization. What I did find odd was that Mr. Brennan never made any references to the history of continuous violence in Islam since 622 AD — the time of Mohammed’s Hijra from Mecca to Medina. And I guess those ISIS fellas are simply celebrating Islam’s beauty by threatening others to become a part of it, or be killed.
I hate to be a broken record, but whose side are these folks on?
