CNN Attacks Bannon For CORRECTLY Stating: “Islam Is Not A Religion Of Peace… Islam Means Submission”


CNN Continues It’s War On Truth

On Tuesday CNN published an article with a headline that reads “Steve Bannon in 2010: ‘Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam is a religion of submission.”

The entire article is nothing more than a deceptively edited hit job on Breitbart and Steve Bannon by CNN.

From CNN:

President Trump’s chief strategist, former Breitbart executive Steve Bannon, once dismissed the notion that Islam is a religion of peace, describing it in a 2010 radio interview as “a religion of submission.”…

…In the segment, Bannon, who at the time served on the board of Breitbart, criticized former President George W. Bush for what he and fellow guest conservative columnist Diana West described as injecting political correctness into the federal government…

…”Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam is a religion of submission. Islam means submission,” Bannon said. “I mean, the whole thing is just, he is the epitome, he’s a Republican version–not a conservative–he’s a Republican establishment, country club version of the Clintons. That’s all they are. It’s the baby boomer, narcissistic, he wants to feel loved.”

CNN then goes on to state that the word Islam means “peace,” which is not true. Bannon is correct when he states that Islam means submission.

From The Religion Of Peace:

An Arabic word has only one root.  The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.”  There is no disagreement about this among Arabic or Islamic scholars. al-Silm(submission) does not mean the same thing as al-Salaam (peace), otherwise they would be the same word.

Submission and peace can be very different concepts, even if a form of peace can be brought about by forcing others into submission.  As the modern-day Islamic scholar, Ibrahim Sulaiman, puts it, “Jihad is not inhumane, despite its necessary violence and bloodshed, its ultimate desire is peace which is protected and enhanced by the rule of law.”

In truth, the Quran not only calls Muslims to submit to Allah, it also orders them to  subdue people of other religions until they are in a full state of submission to Islamic rule.  This has inspired the aggressive history of Islam and its military and demographic success in conquering other cultures.

CNN also included a video along with the article that further deceptively edited quotes and took headlines out of context in an attempt to smear Breitbart.

CNN went through Breitbart’s website and found the most outrageous headlines they could find, coming up with only four total and then tried to paint a picture that this is everything that Breitbart writes.

The problem with this is that these headlines are taken seriously out of context. For example, the headline that reads “Gay rights have made us dumber, it’s time to get back in the closet,” was written by Milo Yiannopoulos who is openly gay.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported on how CNN is the least trusted Major News Network according to a study with only one-third of it’s viewers believing the news.

The Gateway Pundit also reported that CNN  was dominated by Fox News for the inauguration viewership 8.4 million to 2.4 million.
