Letter to the President regarding ISIS

February 19, 2015

Dear Mr. President,

The “IS” in ISIS stands for “Islamic State”, so regardless of whether you believe them to be Islamic or not, THEY believe they ARE. You have said that radical Islamic terrorists are not Islamic and have perverted Islam. You also recently said that Christians engaged in the Crusades, the Inquisition, slavery, and Jim Crow. So Christians did those things you attribute to THEM, but Muslims who do horrible things in the name of THEIR religion are not of the religion they claim to be? Did the Christians who did those horrible things not pervert Christianity? You didn’t make that statement.

Now, it is true that we are not at war with Islam, but we ARE at war with terrorists who claim radical Islamic beliefs based on their interpretation of the writings in the Quran (KORAN), and carry out terrorist acts because of that. The religion aspect is not nearly as important to US as it is to THEM, but that is why they are fighting. They are at war with us due to our beliefs, our multitude of religions, our culture, and so on. All that we stand for goes against what they believe. It serves no purpose to say they are not Islamic just because they do not resemble the religion you grew up around when you were a child in Indonesia. They are at war with us because they believe themselves to be the true followers of Islam. The longer you ignore that, the longer you will continue to have a problem dealing with it.
