ISIS Is Not Islamic?

In a televised address this evening, President Barack Obama outlined his ideas on how to defeat the Islamic State. Along the way, he declared the organization variously known as ISIS or ISIL to be "not Islamic."

In making this preposterous claim, Obama joins his two immediate predecessors in pronouncing on what is not Islamic. Bill Clinton called the Taliban treatment of women and children "a terrible perversion of Islam." George W. Bush deemed that 9/11 and other acts of violence against innocents "violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith."

Word magic permits Obama to turn ISIS into a "not Islamic" organization.
None of the three has any basis for such assertions.

Arlene Kushner on Why Israel Can Allocate 1,000 Acres in Gush Etzion for Housing

September 3, 2014:

A Lonely Mandate

These are particularly tough times for Israel (and for Jews more broadly). The situation demands steady nerves and absolute determination to pursue our course with conviction.  Is is difficult, indeed, not to be deflected by rage, which enervates, or to fall into depression, the flip side of that rage. 

The world, which has turned upside down, is smoldering, and on the cusp of bursting into flames.

But in the face of consummate and breathtaking evil, attacking Israel occupies the attention of the western world.  For we have done something that is deemed terrible: we have allocated close to 1,000 acres in the Gush Etzion area as state land available for future housing.
