At a summit dealing with violent extremism, President Obama tried claiming that no one religion can be held responsible.
“Violent extremism is not unique to any one faith,” Obama stated, echoing his two-term belief that the world’s terrorists are not motivated by radical Islam.
Of course, the summit was titled, the Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism – with the words Islamic State being a part of ‘ISIL.’
British Prime Minister David Cameron responded by basically saying, ‘not so fast, Obama.’

“Violent extremism is not unique to any one faith, so no one should ever be profiled or targeted simply because of their faith,” Obama said Tuesday as he chaired the U.N. Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism.
Cameron stressed that violence extremism can only be stopped at the root, which is radicalized Islam.
“Barack, you are quite right, that every religion has its extremists, but we have to be frank that the biggest problem we have today is the Islamist extremist violence that has given birth to ISIL, to Al Shabaab to Al Nusra, Al Qaeda and so many other groups,” Cameron said.
Cameron went on to say that Muslim leaders around the world must speak out against the radical groups.
Cameron added that “we need to challenge the extremist worldview” and “root out the extremist preachers that are poisoning the minds of young Muslims in our country.”
Comment – Did Cameron win this argument by smacking down President Obama’s ridiculous world view that every religion has extremists like ISIS?
