Tensions are high as people try to appropriate blame for the horrific terrorist attacks in San Bernardino this past Wednesday. Obama has alluded to it being workplace violence. A CNN reporter had the audacity to question that the attack may have stemmed from the woman shooter’s postpartum depression as she recently had a child.
The “politically correct” world has gone silly in laying blame everywhere except where it belongs. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is no different. According to Fox News, CAIR has blamed America for the attacks carried out by the radical Islamic terrorists.
Hussam Ayloush, from the CAIR Los Angeles chapter, in light of the revelations that the terrorist couple were radical extremists who had pledged allegiance to ISIS said that American policy has helped fuel the terrorist attacks. “Let’s not forget that some of our own foreign policy, as Americans, as the west, have fueled that extremism,” Ayloush said in an interview.
In an attempt to push blame away from the terrorists, Ayloush said that the United States supports repressive regimes in the middle east that “push people over the edge.” Once over the edge, “then they become extremists,” Ayloush said. “We are partly responsible. Terrorism is a global problem, not a Muslim problem. And the solution has to be global.
Ayloush is one hundred percent wrong. America is not responsible for radical Islamic terrorists hell bent on waging Jihad on Americans. America is responsible for protecting herself and her citizens from these very type of attacks. The blame must always be placed on the perpetrators, not the victims. There is never justification for the heinous acts like those committed against the innocent victims in San Bernardino. It might not be a Muslim problem as Ayloush said, but it most certainly is a radical Islamic terrorism problem.
