To the Editor:
On Jan. 11, 40 leaders from various countries and 1.3 million people participated in anti-terrorism marches and events in Paris. President Obama was AWOL. He was only represented by our ambassador to France.
It is difficult to believe our president overlooked the need to be in Paris for the anti-terrorism rally. Based on his previous comments, it is quite possible he decided he did not want to offend Islam by appearing at the anti-terrorism unity march.
In the past, he has refused to label the multitude of attacks conducted by Muslims as Islamic terrorist attacks. He said “we are not at war with Islam.” But it sure appears many radical Islamists are at war with us. After all, what is the religion of almost every terrorist who has attacked Western civilization in the past 50 years?
Obama offended every freedom loving person in the world.
