Seriously, why is this man in the Trump administration? From a 2014 speech on the Middle East, White House National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster stated that Islamic jihad organizations are “really un-Islamic” and are “really irreligious organizations” who cloak themselves in the “false legitimacy of Islam.”
Take a listen to the 2014 speech and see if this doesn’t sound like BHO’s taqiyya claims of Islam.
McMaster’s claims about these groups being un-Islamic begin around 9:08.
“War is profoundly human,” McMaster said. “What do all of these conflicts have in common? Of course, there are a lot of differences, right? And we have to be sensitive to local differences and realities that drive conflict.”
“But what you see is you see these really irreligious organizations,” he continued. “These criminal organizations, who cloak themselves in this kind of false legitimacy of Islam. But they are really un-Islamic.”
“They want to portray themselves as patrons and protectors of aggrieved parties,” added McMaster. “So their strategy has been to pit communities against each other. Get them to fight each other and then come in as patron and protector and gain control of a chaotic situation and then establish control through brutality, through intimidation. Use control of populations and resources to conduct more attacks, more mass murder of innocent people to drive retribution attacks like you saw maybe these Shia militias conduct this execution in the mosque in Diyala province. That is what they want. They want this kind of cycle of violence to accelerate–to get more and more destructive.”
Instead of sighting religious beliefs for the cause of their jihad, which these jihadis do quite often, McMaster mused his on thoughts of motivation behind the attacks.
“And so the drivers of conflict is what we have to remember,” McMaster stated. “What is driving a conflict? Sometimes when we look at very quick and easy military solutions to problem sets, we are not thinking about what is the nature of this conflict. What is the nature of this war? What are the human factors? Really, people fight, I think, for the same reasons the Greek philosopher and historian Thucydides identified 2,500 years ago: Fear. Honor. You might say sense of honor. And interest. So understanding those human dimensions and being able to affect them is important, and we have to remember that.”
Really? He’s comparing a Greek philosopher to the ideology of those who follow Muhammed?
No wonder this man is in opposition to everything that President Donald Trump wants to accomplish.
He isn’t even on the same page with who the enemies of America are.
He is defended by designated terror organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and fires those who have done their homework on Islam and jihad while allowing known liars and disinformation agents to maintain their top security clearance.
McMaster is bad. He’s bad for the Trump administration, and he’s bad for America.
