I didn’t refer to Islam at all, or to any other religion for that matter. I spoke about three major threats America faces on a long term basis. Jihadism is one of them, and that is not Islam. If you want my views on Islam, it’s quite straightforward. Islam is one of the world’s great religions and the great majority of people in Islam want peace for themselves and peace with their maker.” —Mitt Romney

That dangerous and irresponsible view would be in agreement with the disaster we now have in the oval office, Barak Obama. But it would be new and wrong to America’s first three Presidents. Jefferson owned a Quran which he called, “The book of Jihad.” As you surely know, Jefferson and Madison fought the first wars of our new nation against the Islamic Jihadists of the Barbary States (. . . to the shores of Tripoli, you know), the Barbary Wars.  

No, Mr. Romney, the seat of darkness on the planet earth that is Islam would not be a great religion. Before you say Islam is not darkness, send your granddaughter to Afghanistan, for example, to live for a year in a Muslim family. How could a “vast majority” even know what it is to want peace when the vast majority of Muslim women and girls live in total and brutal slavery? How could the vast majority of Muslim men and boys know what it is to want peace, Governor Romney, when, on a daily basis, they harshly met out the brutal Islamic slavery to their wives, daughters and mothers?  

Jihad, according to you Governor Romney, is somehow separate from Islam. I infer you contend jihad is peculiar to our time. Here is the Record:

Your views, Governor Romney, are right in line with those of President Obama and Congressman Paul. Most Americans will judge these views to be disqualifying.

  1. It’s no coincidence, then, that the Obama White House — via USAID — is dumping nearly a billion dollars into a Phase II endeavor to upgrade Palestinian infrastructure. See: “USAID Contracts Start Flowing in $750 Million Palestinian Infrastructure Project”
    Likewise, it’s no coincidence that Obama is diverting tens of millions of additional U.S. taxpayer dollars to steer regional visitors away from Israel (See: “$58 Million USAID Contract to Help Steer Tourists Out of Israel and into West Bank, Gaza”
