Rick Santorum: Obama Wrong, ISIS Does Represent Muslims

By    |   Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 06:10 PM

Former Sen. Rick Santorum takes strong issue with President Barack Obama's reaction to the beheading of Peter Kassig by the ISIS terror organization, in which he declared the terror group's actions "represent no faith . . . least of all the Muslim faith."

"To suggest that these people are not Muslims is wrong," Santorum told The Daily Caller on Tuesday. Islamist terrorists, Santorum said, "are looking at the scriptures of the Quran."

"When a Presbyterian gets up and says, 'Well, the Scripture says this,' and a Catholic gets up and says, 'It really means this,' it doesn't mean that they're not Christians," said Santorum, a Republican who is reportedly gearing up for a 2016 White House run.

"One can say, 'Well, they may be way off in their Christianity,'" Santorum added. "Well, that's fine. You have to accept the fact that they're drawing from the same text that all Muslims draw from."

For its part, ISIS reacts contemptuously to claims by Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry that its actions are not genuinely Islamic.

"Obama, the mule of the Jews, suddenly became a sheikh, mufti [Islamic scholar], and an Islamic preacher, warning the people and preaching in defense of Islam, claiming that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam," ISIS said in an official communique earlier this year.

White House officials "turned into Islamic jurists . . . standing up for Islam and the Muslims, so it appears that they no longer have confidence in the ability or sincerity of their sorcerers," it added.

"Kerry, the uncircumcised old geezer, suddenly became an Islamic jurist, issuing a verdict to the people that the Islamic State was distorting Islam, that what it was doing was against Islamic teachings, and that the Islamic State was an enemy of Islam," said the communique, as reported by the Daily Caller.
