So is this is an authentic view of Islam?
Earlier today I read that Ballroom Barry is doubling down on his demands that Americans open their hearts and homeland to 100,000 Syrian refugees. In his brief Easter remarks, Obama said:
"We have to wield another weapon alongside our airstrikes, our military, our counterterrorism work, and our diplomacy," Obama said. "And that's the power of our example. Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL's violence. Our determination to win the battle against ISIL's hateful and violent propaganda -- a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause."
Shortly I read that, a veteran friend out in Guam sent me this refugee pic:
Notice the obvious: that it’s wet, possibly snowing, and the coats, hoods, and hands in pockets convey that it’s uncomfortably cold as well. Then notice the less evident fact that the woman is shoeless, unlike any of the seven males. Also, distinct from any of those males, she is carrying two small children, with the toil of her burden shown in the distressed expression on her face. Notably, hers is the only face showing any strain within the group. Seven healthy future American males, but not one will share the weight of the small children with this woman, much less see to it that she has proper footwear.
Obama says ISIS presents a distorted view of Islam, so I’m compelled to ask: “Mr. President, is this an authentic view?”
