“Jihad Denial Syndrome” is a term coined by ACT! for America Executive Director Guy Rodgers in a column he wrote in 2010 that appeared in The Hill’s Congress Blog.
Jihad Denial Syndrome
By Guy Rodgers, executive director of ACT! for America
Today we highlight President Obama, who recently extended a video welcome to attendees at this year’s ISNA national conference. See his two minute welcome message below.
ISNA was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.
In 1986, the ISNA magazine “Islamic Horizons” proclaimed that “jihad of the sword is the actual taking up of arms against the evil situation with the intention of changing it,” and that “a believer who participates in jihad is superior to a believer who does not.”
Yet President Obama extols the “virtues” of ISNA in his welcome message.
Is it any wonder our national counterterrorism policies fail to accurately describe and define our jihadist enemies???
