Were Obama’s ‘Crusade’ Comments Responsible for Latest Beheadings of Christians?


You may recall how President Obama in his National Prayer Breakfast speech described a moral equivalency between modern-day Islamic barbarity with the Crusades that took place more than 500 years ago in response to Islamic oppression.

“The Crusades were an effort ‘to defend Christians in the Middle East who were being slaughtered by Muslims’ after the Muslim conquest of Christian Jerusalem in 638 AD, wrote Douglas Murray for the Gatestone Institute.”

Here’s what Obama said:

“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Were these comments by President Obama viewed by the beheading Islamists as a way to justify their actions? It’s payback for the Crusades – moral equivalency in action!
