Following speculation that he would avoid saying “radical Islamic extremism” on Sunday after using it often during the campaign — both national security adviser H.R. McMaster and Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway refused to say if Trump would use the terminology — Trump will say “Islamist extremism.”

“That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians,” Trump will say. “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory — piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”

************************

President Trump will describe the fight against terrorism as “Islamist extremism” during his major speech to Middle Eastern leaders on Sunday, according to excerpts released from the White House.

“We are adopting a principled realism, rooted in common values and shared interests,” Trump will say in Saudi Arabia. “Our friends will never question our support, and our enemies will never doubt our determination. Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes — not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms — not sudden intervention.”

“Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God,” he will said. “America is a sovereign nation and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture — we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values — to pursue a better future for us all. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith.”

The president will urge Middle Eastern countries to take the initiative in the conflict, as the United States is willing to help but not do all the fighting itself. Trump just signed a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia to do just that, and told the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, during a brief photo spray on Sunday that they discussed another purchase of “beautiful military equipment.”

“But we can only over acome this evil if the forces of good are united and strong — and if everyone in this room does their fair share and fulfills their part of the burden,” Trump will say. “Terrorism has spread across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land. America is prepared to stand with you — in pursuit of shared interests and common security. But the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them. The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.”

As previously reported by the Associated Press about a draft it obtained, Trump will cast the fight as a “battle between good and evil.”

“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations,” Trump will say. “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”

Following speculation that he would avoid saying “radical Islamic extremism” on Sunday after using it often during the campaign — both national security adviser H.R. McMaster and Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway refused to say if Trump would use the terminology — Trump will say “Islamist extremism.”

“That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians,” Trump will say. “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory — piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”

    I understand the politics , but my big question is : ” does Trump understand that the islam is inherent a terrorist ” religion ” for non believers ?

    Does he understand that in matter of allah and the faith a peace of paper is NOTHING ?


  2. “Islamist” is an adjective reflecting the noun “Islamism,” political Islam, which demands the creation of a world-wide caliphate through terrorism, outright war and cultural Jihad.

    Would you prefer that President Trump damn religious Islam and demand that Muslims in all Muslim countries convert to a different religion? That would be a silly demand and one which would be rejected. It would harm, rather than advance, Muslim efforts against political Islam.

    • joopklepzeiker Says:

      Did you missed my : I understand the politics .

      But ask you self the question why the big change in attitude now from a part of the arabic /islamic world in words, while a couple pf weeks ago the atmosphere was a bit different in the UN and OIC .

      I prefer that Trump plays it smart and is fully in the know about the real islam and not what we have seen today out of the mouth of this bunch islamic political liars

      Lies, liars and politics, food for the people.

      The “king ” of Jordan just called Israel murderers because they shot a terrorist who stabbed a Israeli soldier several times, DO YOU BELIEVE this bunch of religious political scumbags ?
      Do you understand the expression: we have clocks and they have the time ?

      Why are we still afraid to show the world the real beast , I hope Trump plays it smart so far i see a lot of progress if it is real progress time have to tell, i,am for now skeptical.
      I hope he played this game from a stand point of power of course in secret , give them a way out to save their asses for the time being .

      And again i do not trust one moslime , not ONE !

      Further more you have to listen well !

      Trump said we have to stop this radical islamic terror because otherwise it will spread !

      How can it spread if moslimes are so peaceful and there are only a few extremist who are misunderstanding the teachings of the islam ,????????????

      Why are we dressing up the beast and are still not willing to show the real beast.

      Or do you think Trump is the coming of the 12th imam or jezus so he can change the ” religion ” called islam in one visit of 2 days in the middle east, are you now a believer Dan .

      the prophet said if i pledge an oath but later i find something better for the islam i will break my oath with the blessings of allah .

      Still not open loud and clear honest politics !

      But a light year better than the last 20 years ore so .

      honest politics is that not a contradiction in terms ??

      Peace upon you all, but i have my doubts, make me that a cynical ??

        “And again i do not trust one moslime , not ONE !”

        Kinda sad actually. Dissing a billion people in one swipe. People you don’t even know. Condemning because of the religion they were born into and brainwashed by. You sound like a group back in 40’s that once said Jews can not be trusted. Real sad.

        • joopklepzeiker Says:

          Yep, it is really sad that there are still so many people who are poisoned by the filt of the islam , but the trust based on a kind of political correctness or if you want religious correctness is for people like you who are discarding the content of that ” religion ” and the history of that ” religion ” and are willing to gamble with our societies .

          People like obama , merkel an trudeau .

          And you comment about the 40’s and Jews , put i under the same shit as the moslimes are the new Jews shit from the left and some retarded ” christian ” groups in mostly the USA and England , you know The Jews killed jezus people .
          But do you mean to say that my not trusting is the same as the nazi extermination of the Jews ?
          I,am rather interested in a more clear explanation .

          And let us be honest why would i trust Christians or catholics , history learn us overly clear trough more than 2000 years history that Jews can only trust them self and Israel the eternal home for Jews , or do i have to enlighten you about the pogroms to start with .

          Furthermore , you are putting the islam as religion on the same level as christianity or Judaism , that shows an intellectual dishonesty commonly found under the leftwing factions and some christian factions.

          Even I as an atheistic Jew acknowledge the fundamental differences in the 3 Abrahamistic religions , you as your comment shows does not acknowledge that.

          And that argument from you about born in and brainwashed into the for eternity not changeable only truth also called the islam shows EXACTLY why i not trust one moslime , it make them even MORE dangerous !

          Your comment show again why we Jews can only trust on our self,s if it concern the defense of Israel !
          But thanks for your reaction on my comment, feel free to react more, i like it , give me more opportunity to express myself in this kind of matters .
          If you have the feeling that you need a bit more info about the beast also called the Islam , feel free to ask .

          Again, thank you .

            People are people my friend. Philosophys are Philosophys.
            Hate the philosophy, not the people.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Did i talked about hate ?????

            I said : i do not trust one moslime , that is not the same as hating all moslimes .

            And people are people is for me a bit childish and a moronic statement .something like we are all the same , typical left wing bull shit and a way to pump in the new world thinking into small brains .,

            The Beauty of human kind is that we are ALL different no one is the same ,but In the same time it can be a curse , to annihilate the negative effect of all being different we have brains ( Yep , one more than an other ) the problem is however a lot of people are not willing or able to use that brain sufficient and living in a primitive and sometimes barbaric realm like religion and or ideology and using that as a base for existence , instead the ratio of an intellectual process .

          • John Prophet Says:

            You are a Jew due to an accident of birth, you were born into a Jewish family. If you were born into a Muslim family you’d be all about Allah and hate the Jews. Bust out of your programming and you’ll see a different world.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            First some private information :

            My father was a Jew, It was never a point in our family , it was kept hidden for me ., i got knowledge about my Jewish roots first at 25 year of age .
            Did not say anything to me till around my 45 years , i got a growing awareness of my Jewish bloodline , and as we say in the Netherlands blood crawls where it can not go .
            But I,am NOT programmed into any religion , there was NO religion in my family, as i said i,am an hardcore atheist .

            Let them oust their program, and from there we will see, but you may be happy with moderate moslimes , i,am NOT .
            And all what you are saying does not undercut my mistrust in moslimes .

          • John Prophet Says:

            “But I,am NOT programmed into any religion”

            Perhaps, but your mistrust/hate of over a billion people is misguided. Hate radical Islam, hate the monsters that cut off heads. Hate evil. That sort of hate at least can be understood

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Educate yourself about the islam and tahn come back to me, now you are ignorant and is talking about a subject without any knowledge .

            Decapitating is SO islamic , even the angel gabriel came back to earth to motivate the prophet to keep going on decapitating 800 Jewish boys and man when he was resting a bit from decapitating the first batch of Jews .
            All written down in the only for ever not changeable truth .
            And in 2017 you can still hear the so peaceful Islamic yell what celebrate this killing .

            Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sayud

            islam is radical, it is a terrorist ideology covert as an religion, to conquer the world .
            And THAT is their holy assignment !!!
            you may trust I DO NOT .
            YOU may fall for the complete false narrative of moderate islam, what just NOT exist !
            Are there moderate moslimes ?
            Yes, there are,out of ignorance about their religion or out of taqiyya/kitman
            Not trustworthy for me .

            please educate yourself and come back, please not earlier .

          • John Prophet Says:

            A bit of personal info. I’m as far from a leftist snowflake as you can get. I believe in a creator but not religion. Religion is a human construct to answer the unknown. I do however see us as programed by the past. Programed by primitive thinking/philosophies. Philosophies of people who lived in mud huts. Different philosophies developed in isolation. That’s why there are so many.

            These philosophies are being replaced by modernity, by global communication. The world is a different place. Your way of thinking will be extinct in a generation or two.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            You are hilarious , really hilarious !!!

            quote : I believe in a creator but not religion. Religion is a human construct to answer the unknown.

            unquote : another prophet who knows the creator , really hilarious.

            And what is my way of thinking ?
            I resist the we are all the same crap and will not give me over like you into the fascistic technocratic new world order constructed by a few for the dumb down masses .

            I have a working brain , that zombie behavior does not stick to me, what a burden having to enlighten you , but is that now also a holy assignment ?

            wahahahahah

            Holy crap , plug yourself in and suck it up !

          • John Prophet Says:

            How you squirm when your challenged. Humorous actually.

            “Educate yourself about the islam and tahn come back to me, now you are ignorant and is talking about a subject without any knowledge .”

            Funny indeed, and you expose yourself to the world through this site. Do you even understand this?

            US President Donald Trump was said to have blazed a new trail between the Arab world and Israel Monday, with his plane believed to be the first to fly directly from Saudi Arabia to the Jewish state.
            Do you get that o prophet ?

            Further more :And why do you think that I approve your comments ?
            And why do you think i spend time and energy on this site ?

            Come on bro you are not to smart aren’t we ?

        • John Prophet Says:

          unquote : “another prophet who knows the creator , really hilarious.”

          It’s Religions that claim to know/speak for the creator that’s just a fact.

          That’s why I don’t have one. But believing in a creator does not make me a prophet. I see created things and see a creator. No way this little piece of flotsam could possibly know the creators mind.
          Sounds like you do thought.

          • John Prophet Says:

            Perhaps this like poem I wrote will enlighten you about my thoughts on this.

            Who Is Right.

            What do you believe?
            Why do you believe it?
            How did you learn it?
            Who taught you?
            What where their motives?
            Ideas not men rule the world.
            Some believe in religion, some do not.
            Some believe in life after death, some do not.
            Some believe in reincarnation, some do not.
            Some are Hindu.
            Some are Christians.
            Some are Buddhists.
            Some are Muslim.
            Some are Jewish.
            Some are Taoist.

            There are hundreds of religions on this planet.
            Some are monotheistic .
            Some are polytheistic.
            Some believe in only a force.
            Some believe the universe itself is alive.

            In the past, some believed earth was the center of the Universe.
            Some believe “God” made man in “his” image.

            There are many belief systems on this world.

            Humankind has always been parochial in its thinking.
            Believing they are the center of things, thinking they have
            It all figured out.
            Truth is, they can’t all be right. Odds are, none of them are.

            Thank you for supporting my point (s)

            I really do not care what you believe or even interested in , as long as your believe (s) do not interfere with my existence .

            That is why i talk about the ratio of the intellect as the only base for humans to live together as a specie.

            I do not do ( believe in )all mighty all knowing creators or gods as i have said several times, i,am a hardcore atheist , do you have problems with reading .

            or do we have to get used to things like the Manchester Concert Massacre , really you sound like a delusional political correct left winger mental ready for the new world order .

            Do you read that bull crap from the world counsel of churches ?

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Yep a believer in a creator.
            But that make you religious you believe !
            And what created he , everything or just you ?
            It is getting funny now !

          • John Prophet Says:

            Joop, I stand by my beliefs just as you stand by yours.
            What makes yours superior to mine?

            Jees !!!!!!
            I do not have believe (s) who are interfering with my interaction with other humans, i deal with them on a base of the intellectual ratio .

            This is now at least the third time you do not have read or understand my remarks, is that because you are not able or not willing to understand ?
            Did i mentioned my by you suggested superiority in this matter , where is your question coming from ?
            Show your question not a kind of inferior feeling on your side or an intellectual dishonesty as is common by the left wingers ,both is also a possibility , that would explain a lot .

          • John Prophet Says:

            Joop, your insults at other’s opinions which is legion on the site displays your sense of superiority in thought over others.

            I stand by my thoughts. Others a free to have theirs.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            You are free to your opinions and i will fight for you right to express them.
            I respect that with everything in me !
            But now i have to learn you something again .
            Having respect for your right to express your opinion is NOT the same as having respect for the content of your opinion .
            And again your reaction shows a kind of inferior feeling .
            Sorry, but if you can not stand the heat stay out of the kitchen .
            Furthermore , you started cooking this up , and i slap you just a bit friendly around the ears .
            Do not start crying like a baby , otherwise i have to start treating you like one .

            In case you forgot it .

    Politics is the art of the possible.
    We are all programed at birth. The same bady born into different religion would be molded into that religions propaganda. I a catholic if born in Saudi Arabia would be moslum, or in Israel a Jew. People do not rule the world, philosophies do.
    In America you’ll never turn a bleeding heart liberal into a tea party member or vice a versa. The best anyone can do is to find common ground to build on. Even if it’s just a sliver of ground.
