D'Souza: Obama Wants Christians to Share Blame for Terrorism

Tuesday, 10 Feb 2015 06:34 PM

President Barack Obama presented a skewered view of history last week at the National Prayer Breakfast when he compared the bloody, Christian-led Crusades to the atrocities committed by the Islamic State (ISIS), Dinesh D'Souza says.

Because Muslims are responsible for both, the conservative author and acclaimed filmmaker said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

D'Souza said that in comparing the two, the president is subtly attempting to say that Christians are just as much to blame for terror.

"He was equating the sins of medieval Christianity, namely the Crusades, with the contemporary terrorism of ISIS," D'Souza said.

"Now, leaving aside the fact that all of this happened with the Crusades over 1,000 years ago, it's important to remember that the Crusades themselves were a response to Muslim conquest.

"The Muslims not only conquered the Holy Land, they conquered parts of Italy, all of Spain, they were at the gates of Vienna, and had the Christians not fought back, most likely all of Europe would have fallen into Muslim hands. So not only are the Muslims to blame for ISIS, they're also to blame for the Crusades."

D'Souza, director of the documentary "2016: Obama's America," said Obama refuses to blame recent terror attacks around the world on Islam.

"He denies the connection to Islam. It's not that he denies the killing itself, he denies that it's Islamic and that it's terrorism," he said.

"And I'm saying that if someone does that, they're unable to give even the most basic description of what is happening in front of them. It's sort of like watching the Nazi concentration camps and denying that it's Nazis that are motivating it and that it's targeting of the Jews.

"There's a lot of violence going on here, there's a lot of gas, there are a lot of people dying, but refusing to actually describe what's happening in front of you."

D'Souza is now serving eight months of community service and five years of probation after pleading guilty to charges of using straw donors to support a New York Senate campaign.

He maintains that he was targeted by the Obama administration for his political beliefs.
