War on Islam? Israel, an open sore?

Reader comment on item: How to Save the Obama Presidency: Bomb Iran
in response to reader comment: Who are the allies and who is the foe?

Dr. Brandstetter, as for the declaration that was or was not made by President Obama in which he "vowed to never make war on Islam" it is entirely believeable that Mr. Obama, as with ANY reasonable man, could have expressed that very thought. For a leader of any country to even contemplate the silly idea of stating their wishes or intentions in wanting to make war on Islam or any other religion would be preposterous on its face and, furthermore, impossible to execute. War is made by government leaders against government leaders not against religions

. I think it would be best for you, Dr. Brandstetter, to revisit whatever source you plucked the president's supposed comment from and ponder the salient differences between the parties who engage in war. It would be akin to a president wishing to make war on Rock 'N Roll.

As for President Obama "...branding Israel an 'open sore" that "infects US foreign policy'" you are not only propogating a lie but showing your own cowardice with your lack of attribution. Mr. Obama never said this while a candidate nor as president.... Dr. Brandstetter ... and as the party making the claim it is incumbent upon you to provide the proof not the recipients ... Source, please?

Submitting....
