Obama, asked why he refused to refer to the terrorists as Islamic, responded that there is no religious rationale for what they are doing (here), so therefore they can't be Islamic. Mr. President, why are you trying to look like an idiot? There are scads of people on the right here in America who can point to the exact verse in the Qur’an on which these actions are based (see here, for example). Anyway, one could just as well denounce every Muslim country. Take Saudi Arabia, for example. Is there a religious rationale for not allowing women to drive a car? Tell us what it is, Mr. President.
