On Friday Islamist killers linked to ISIS slaughtered 129 people in Paris and injured another 352 civilians.
It was the worst military attack in Paris in decades.
Barack Obama made a public statement after the attacks but did not mention “Islam.”
He said he refused to even speculate:
“I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from French officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate.”

The killers were screaming “Allahu Akbar!” as they murdered their victims at the Bataclan Concert Hall.
But, Obama won’t mention the word Islam.
Today Donald Trump weighed in.
“Why won’t President Obama use the term Islamic Terrorism?”
Why won’t President Obama use the term Islamic Terrorism? Isn’t it now, after all of this time and so much death, about time!
