Why is it so hard for our president and his administration to call Islamic terrorism what it is? He identified the stabbing spree of a Somali man who yelled “Allahu Akbar” as he injured eight people in a shopping mall just a “potential act of terrorism.” Potential? The Islamic State already proudly claimed credit—how much more “potential” do you need? He didn't call the New York and New Jersey bombings terrorism, just calling these deliberate attacks “explosions.” And yesterday his staffer, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest described the terror threat as a “narrative threat.” Tell that to the families of the over 5000 U.S. service men and women who lost their lives fighting terror since 9/11. And tell it to the victims of terror who suffer every day after having been shot, stabbed, burned horribly, or lost limbs. My prayer is that the next president of the United States will not be ashamed to say the truth and identify Islamic terrorists for what they are.
