One of America’s most prominent faith leaders is calling out President Obama for refusing to recognize and acknowledge the threat from Islamic radicalism and terrorism.
In a Facebook post Monday, Franklin Graham, the chief of Samaritan’s Purse, pointed out that Obama, during his statements about the weekend’s massacre by a radical Islamic terrorist at a bar for homosexuals, refused to call it an act of radical Islamic terrorism.
Obama throughout his presidency has refused to say the words Islamic terrorism or radical Islamic terrorism. Often, he’s suggested that Islam actually is peaceful and those who carry out violence and terror against innocent victims in the name of Islam actually are wrong about Islam.
Graham, however, said it’s apparent that’s not really right, and Obama needs to recognize that.

“I appreciate President Barack Obama speaking to the nation yesterday in the wake of the Orlando massacre. He was right in saying that this tragic shooting was an act of terror and hate,” Graham wrote.
“But why didn’t he say it was an act of radical Islamic terrorism?”

“Mr. President, with all due respect, don’t forget Fort Hood; don’t forget the Boston Marathon; don’t forget San Bernardino; and don’t forget 9/11. What do they all have in common? They were all Islamic terrorists carrying out their treachery in the name of their religion.”
Graham continued, “Mr. President, your administration has cut our military to the bone, and some experts say we’re the weakest we have been in modern times. It’s time we were rebuilding our military force worldwide to take on this enemy. It’s time we tighten America’s borders until we can clearly vet those we’re letting into the country.
