We’re Not Islamophobic, Mr. Obama, We Just Don’t Want to Get Blown Up

Republican and Democratic governors are thwarting President Obama’s plan to move thousands of Syrian refugees into your neighborhood. It is a prudent measure to take — especially in the aftermath of the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris. And it is especially prudent now that ISIS has warned that America will be next. “We need to take ISIS at their word,” Franklin Graham wrote on Facebook. “Their goal is world domination. They want to control us — they want to destroy us.”

Republican and Democratic governors are thwarting President Obama’s plan to move thousands of Syrian refugees into your neighborhood.

It is a prudent measure to take — especially in the aftermath of the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris. And it is especially prudent now that ISIS has warned that America will be next.

“We need to take ISIS at their word,” Franklin Graham wrote on Facebook. “Their goal is world domination. They want to control us — they want to destroy us.”

However, President Obama and the Council for American Islamic Relations called the moratorium on Syrian refugees un-American.

“That’s shameful,” the president said, referring to suggestions that only Syrian Christians be allowed to enter the United States. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”

CAIR went on to say that such actions were “driven by fear and Islamophobia.”

Well, if wanting to keep the radical Islamists out of our nation makes me an extremist, then so be it.

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee delivered the harshest critique of President Obama’s response to the Paris terrorist attacks, calling it wimpish.

“We have a Cub Scout for commander in chief,” he said.

“It’s embarrassing when a left-wing socialist French President shows strength and determination to eradicate animals who are slaughtering innocent civilians while our president lectures us on the moral necessity to open our borders to tens of thousands of un-vetted people from the Middle East.”

But President Obama remains steadfast in his defense of the Muslim faith. He said the world has a terrorist problem — not a Muslim problem.

“The overwhelming majority of victims of terrorism over the last several years, and certainly the overwhelming majority of victims of ISIL, are themselves Muslims,” he said. “ISIL does not represent Islam. It is not representative in any way of the attitudes of the overwhelming majority of Muslims.”

I really want to believe that Islam is the religion of peace. I really do. But it’s hard to do when there is not overwhelming condemnation of the terrorist attacks from the majority of Muslims.

Where are the voices of the Muslims outraged that their faith has been hijacked? Where are the thousands of Muslims marching in the streets denouncing the terrorists? Where are they? Why have they chosen to remain silent?

I’m all for welcoming the huddled masses yearning to be free. It’s the ones yearning to wage jihad that I’m worried about.

What’s going to happen when one of those Syrian refugees opens fire in a Chick-fil-A or launches a chemical attack at Disney World or explodes a pressure cooker at Cafe DuMonde in the French Quarter?

We are not Islamophobic, Mr. President. We are not un-American. We just don’t want our kids to get blown up.
