Rand Paul Wallows in Political Correctness
Rand Paul is either ignorant of Islamic history or is doing the Politically Correct dance in order to appear "enlightened" to the mouth-breathing media and Ruling Elites.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he agreed with the part of President Obama’s speech about ISIS not representing true Islam, calling the Islamic State “an aberrant form that should not represent most of the civilized Islamic world.”
After Obama’s address, some ISIS accounts on Twitter were using the hashtag ”Islamic State represents Islam right” in response to one part of the speech: “ISIL is not ‘Islamic,’” Obama said. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.”
“I think there was one important point that he was making about them not being Islamic or a form of true Islam. Ultimately, civilized Islam will have to step up. We need to do everything we can to protect ourselves. I’m all in for saying we have to combat ISIS. But also, the ultimate war, the long war, whoever knows how long, ultimately is going to need allies from civilized Islam,” Paul said on Fox.

The senator and potential 2016 presidential candidate said he didn’t think Obama was trying to “diminish” the point that ISIS’ goal is to spread its caliphate reports PJ Media.
“I would say that he was trying to make the point to the Islamic world that this isn’t a true or accurate depiction of Islam because, ultimately, we do need — and most of the allies around that also are offended and also are worried about the rise of ISIS are also Muslim nations. And I think they will rise up,” Paul said. ”And ultimately, the ultimate victory — there are going to be short-term victories in the war on terror and the war on radical Islam, but the long-term victory is going to require allies who are part of the civilized Islamic world, which is the majority of the Islamic world.”
Paul also gave a defense of “secular dictators.”
“Assad — as bad as Assad is, he is an enemy of ISIS. He is an enemy of radical Islam. As bad as Gadhafi was, Gadhafi was an opponent of radical Islam. As bad as Hussein was… We didn’t create it, but we did allow a festering of chaos when we toppled the secular dictators.”
The senator acknowledged Obama’s plan “is an intervention, and I don’t always support intervention, but this is one I do support.”
Lies on Top of Lies
Islam is not, and never has been, "The Religion of Peace."
The "Prophet" Muhammad was still alive in 629AD when he ordered his armies to start their invasion of the Christian Eastern Roman Empire's lands in Egypt, Palestine and Syria.
ISIS is true to Muhammad. They offer you conversion, death or pay a tax for the right to be left alone.

|The Siege of Constantinople|
Muhammad had only been dead for 42 years when massive Islamic Arab armies were beating at the gates of Constantinople in a four year long siege. If the city had fallen Islamists would have poured into the Balkans marching into a helpless Central Europe wallowing in the poverty and disorganization of the Dark Ages.

|The Walls of Constantinople|
For 1,000 years the Christian Eastern Roman Empire fought against endless invasions by the "peaceful" religion of Islam. When Constantinople (modern Istanbul) finally fell to Islamist armies in 1453 the Christians inside the walls were either killed, raped, sold into slavery or forced to pay a special tax to their new Muslim overlords.
