Raheem Kassam, an ex-Muslim, has said that the Trump administration needs to call out radical Islamic terrorism by it real name and designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization as several Arab countries, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE have already done.
Breitbart Speaking on Fox News, Kassam expressed concern at what appears to be the administration’s increasing reluctance to confront radical Islamic terrorism by name following September 11th commemorations.
“It’s incredible how Defense Secretary James Mattisthey can describe militant Islamic jihadists as being ‘dressed in false religious garb’ today, when throughout the campaign they’re banging the drum about radical Islamic terrorism. “It got left out of the Afghanistan speech a couple of weeks ago, and it was left out of the 9/11 speech.
“These are not people who are changing the religion; instead they are fundamentalists, literally interpreting the Quran. Kassam explained how people like him, who comes from a Muslim background, are dismissed out of hand as “Islamophobes”, and how “People who are trying, trying to get people to realise they don’t have to literally interpret the Quran and chop people’s hands off and their feet off, as it says in the Quran, are being pushed aside as voices.”
