The Obama Regime has unveiled its “plan” for countering the violence and terrorism of Islam…by giving the jihadis and potential jihadis jobs.
We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.
— Marie Harf, State Dept. Spokesperson
This is the typical sort of “nuanced” declaration that we’ve become ever so used to from Obama and his sycophants. And it is nuanced and not without a kernel of truth to it. Improved governance and economic opportunities would reduce certain forms of violence and unrest. It just won’t do anything to undermine the Islamic terrorism, extremism, and jihadist behavior that the world is facing today.
It’s a far more generalized prescription that could be applied with various chances and degrees of success to almost any violent group.
Obama’s Jobs For Jihadis Plan
What we have here and now is a refusal by the Obama Regime to effectively, even in rhetoric, address the issue of Radical Islam.
Alinsky’s 12th Rule for Radicals states, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Obama knows this rule and its proven worth, yet he refuses to pick the Jihadis as the target, freeze them, personalize them, and polarize them. He refuses to do what he was trained to do to an enemy.
Pause and think about that for a moment.
How can anyone, even for a moment, believe that Obama sees Radical Islam and Muslim terrorism as a serious problem to be countered when he refuses to follow the rules he was trained to follow when dealing with them? It seems fairly obvious that he doesn’t see it as a serious problem and likely that he, instead, sees Radical Islam and Muslim terrorism a “crisis” to be exploited for other gains in his and his handlers’ and overseers’ agenda.
