Barack Obama would not condemn “jihad” and said he regretted that the “great religion” of Islam has been distorted by a few extremists today.

Those “few extremists” have carried out 16,350 deadly attacks since 9-11.

The Hindu reported:

U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday regretted that the “great religion” of Islam has been distorted by a few extremists to justify violence towards innocent people and called for isolating these elements.

Mr. Obama also said that people will have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate differences among them.

“I think all of us have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate our differences,” he added.

The US president expressed these views when a Muslim student A. Ansari lobbed a question asking for his views on ‘jihad” during his interaction with students of St Xavier’s college here.

“I think all of us recognise that this great religion (Islam) in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence towards innocent people that is never justified,” he said.

“So, one of the challenges the world faces is how to “isolate” those who have these distorted notions of religious war…and reaffirm those who see faces of all sorts whether you are a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian and a Jew or any other religion that we can all treat each other with respect and mutual dignity,” he added.

Mr. Obama said the phrase ‘Jihad’ has different interpretations. Islam is one of the great religions and majority of its one billion practices believe in peace, justice and tolerance, he added.

  1. elements.

    Mr. Obama also said that people will have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate differences among them.

    “I think all of us have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate our differences,” he added.

    “we have to punish our enemies”
    “if they bring a knife, we bring a gun”
    “If they hit, we hit back twice as hard”

    I don’t think Obowma the clowniac even understands that his words get recorded. He’s really quite delusional

  2. Why would B. Hussein Obama condemn a religion he used to practice? … and probably still secretly kneels facing Mecca several times a day.

    Notice how he doesn’t go to that Baptist Church in DC for anything other than a photo-op?

  3. Guess I must be one of those islamphobes. Bambi’s statement does not remove the notion that we have a closet Muslim residing in the White House.
    Sorry, but that is the way I see the situation.

    Well, Barry for one thing Islam is NOT a religion it is a” radical ideology.”

    We need to isolate them from us and get them out of our country!

    “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think that you are a fool then to open it and remove all doubt.”

  5. I’m only interested in the “interpretation of Jihad” that causes ‘Slims to massacre innocent people.

    It’s the Islam, stupid.

  6. “…Islam has been distorted by a few extremists to justify violence…”

    Um, yeah, sure, Mr. President. Just like the Hell’s Angels and the American Nazis have been distorted by a few extremists. I mean, only a few members of those groups have actually murdered people.

    What we must do is to “isolate those who have these distorted notions” while we reach out to those outlaw bikers and Nazis “who see faces of all sorts” and believe “that we can all treat each other with respect and mutual dignity.”

    Two more years of this dangerously unbalanced presidency. Will we make it?

  7. Impeach little Mohammed.

  8. If there are a billion ‘peaceful’ muslims then why is it so hard to find one that doesn’t hate the Jews and want them annihilated ?

  9. Has any one seen the video that Fox is running where Barry is standing there talking to the students? If you do watch them…they are looking away and not at him!

  10. What a great prophet is our Imam Obama. The most arrogant person on earth.

  11. O is now completely irrelevant. Socialism has been stalled but it’s still alive. Time to look to O’s replacement in 2012 and at those who are trying to push socialism to the next level.

  12. the recent church attendence of the obamas had a special interest – maybe only interest for obama to leave his golf clubs at home

  13. “Socialism has been stalled but it’s still alive..”
    someone said whether or not obama goes on to a 2nd term it’s about the structure that’s being put into place. put into place but for who….someone hired to break up the place so that others can slither in to rebuild.

  14. Islam is a satanic theology, created by the “Great Deceiver” to draw away followers of Judaism and Christianity. It was not by accident that it spang up around the lands of Mosses and Abraham and Jesus. No other theology demands that nonbelievers, (Infidels) must be killed.

  15. A “FEW” extremists???

    There are whole armies of extremists!

    Why is our president lying and misleading the american people on this issue?

  16. Listen to a testimony of a former Muslim who converted to Christianity at http://www.crosstalkamerica.com and you will hear from someone who knows that the Koran is loaded with falsehood and deception. The man in the interview knows that political correctness is giving Islam a chance to come in, take over, and corrupt America, just like it is doing to Europe.

  17. I think he’s calling people stupid again because they do not agree with his (this time) theological musings. How can the poor man exist in a world where everyong on the planet is a dullard except him? He must feel very alone.

  18. called for isolating these elements.

    These “elements” are highly respected mosque bosses. They and the locations of their centers of evil are, or should be, known to our intelligence agencies.

    They do indeed need to be “isolated”.
