President Obama defended his administration’s approach to the terror threat at a White House summit Wednesday, standing by claims that groups like the Islamic State do not represent Islam — as well as assertions that job creation could help combat extremism.

Obama, addressing the Washington audience on the second day of the summit, said the international community needs to address “grievances” that terrorists exploit, including economic and political issues.

He stressed that poverty alone doesn’t cause terrorism, but “resentments fester” and extremism grows when millions of people are impoverished.

“We do have to address the grievances that terrorists exploit including economic grievances,” he said.

He also said no single religion was responsible for violence and terrorism, adding he wants to lift up the voice of tolerance in the United States and beyond.

Obama’s address came as Republican lawmakers and others criticized the administration for declining to describe the threat as Islamic terrorism.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf has also come under fire for suggesting several times this past week that more jobs could help address the terrorism crisis.

  1. Let me just comment by saying that it is fascinating to examine the man’s thought processes. Truly, our Emperor Obama has never owned any clothes and yet he has succeeded in cocooning himself in a fantasy world where his fashion sense has become the standard. But I digress. The fact is- it is the very politics of Islam itself that has created the economic impoverishment in the middle east that our President talks about as being the impetus for terrorist expression. Sorry, folks, but the glories of ancient Persia are gone. The middle east today under the flag of Islam is a turd-world hellhole of filth and economic depression and the only bright spot in the sandbox- the only bright spot- is the beautiful garden country of
    Israel.

    And to assert that job creation will combat terrorism are the words of a man whose connection to reality is tenuous at best. All over Europe and America, young men and women are leaving their posh, middle class affluence and existence to go to Syria and Yemen and other places to train up and join ISIS. Economic prosperity does nothing to stem the tide of radical Islam. In fact, Radical Islam is DEPENDENT on economic prosperity around the world for it’s recruitment and support and countries like America are perfect breeding grounds for Islamic radicalism. All America needs to do is to bump up our numbers from the 7 million Muslims that currently live in this country to, say, 30 million or more. If this happens, the tail will wag the dog as it does in Europe and radical Islam will become America’s most pervasively deadly domestic problem.
