Double faced Obama denounces ‘acts of barbarism’ by US-israel fed ISIL terrorist group
US President Barack Obama has denounced the ISIL terrorist group for claiming to stand up for Islam while they are “betraying it.”
“We see ISIL, a brutal vicious death cult that in the name of religion carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism,” he said during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Thursday.
The US president also criticized the terror network for “claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.”
He suggested that people in the United States should curb their criticism of Islamic ideas.
“And if, in fact, we defend the legal right of a person to insult another’s religion, we’re equally obligated to use our free speech to condemn such insults and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with religious communities,” Obama said.
Last week, Obama condemned the beheading of Japanese freelance journalist Kenji Goto by ISIL terrorists.
On Saturday, the terrorists released a video showing Goto kneeling down while dressed in an orange jumpsuit, in a similar fashion to a number of other ISIL victims, including Haruna Yukawa, another Japanese man decapitated earlier.
Goto, 47, a respected journalist known for his work covering the suffering of civilians in war zones, was captured in Syria last October. He reportedly went to Syria to try to secure Yukawa’s release.
The US president once again insisted that Washington would take “decisive action to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.”
