Reports have been flooding the West in recent months of Muslim terrorists beheading Christians in the Middle East, imposing crucifixion as a penalty, killing children and abducting women for the purpose of sexual slavery.
But those are the “radicals” who don’t represent Islam, Obama administration officials and others repeat. President George W. Bush said Islam is a “religion of peace,” and Obama frequently has defended Islam, most recently insisting the brutal ISIS army that has taken over portions of Syria and Iraq has nothing to do with the religion.
But are the radicals really “radical”?
One expert says the atrocities and acts of violence are the real Islam.
