President Barack Obama said Wednesday evening that “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’” He followed that up by saying “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”
And Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) agrees with him.
Let's take a look at this logically.
- “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”
- ISIS which President Obama calls ISIL unquestionably does condone such killing. So does al Qaeda. So does Hamas. So does Hezbollah. So does the Taliban. So does the Muslim Brotherhood. So does every major Islamic group. So does the Koran. So did Mohammed.
Therefore, by President Obama's own logic,
- Islam is not a religion.
That seems clear enough to me.
