Today’s quote comes to us from President Donald Trump. It is his twitter response to the inhuman, depraved bombing – apparently by what is left of ISIS – of an Egyptian Mosque, then the shooting deaths of worshipers who ran from that Mosque in terror – a total (so far) of close to 250 dead and over 100 injured.
Said Mr. Trump:
“Horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless worshipers in Egypt. The world cannot tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!”
I have little doubt that this is going to be perverted by Trump-haters into an attack on Islam…which it self-evidently is not. But hatred is what it is.
Regarding Mr. Trump, he wins Quote Of The Day honors not only for saying exactly what should have been said about radical Islam, but for – again, as he has in the past – differentiating it from Islam as practiced by people who want nothing more than to live and let live, which all too many people on both the left and the right seem incapable of doing.
One last point, in the form of a question: what has ISIS ever done besides kill people? Can anyone name anything?
I didn’t think so.
