Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Neil Cavuto today that Obama is using ISIS arguments against Christians.
Not only is this president unwilling to go after, to call out radical Islam by its name, but at time President Obama has acted like an apologist for radical Islam… When I said President Obama is an apologist, you may remember earlier when President Obama spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and the King of Jordan was scheduled to speak there but he had to fly back to Jordan because the day before ISIS had taken a Jordanian pilot, put him in a cage and lit him on fire. And President Obama gave a speech, I was sitting at the prayer breakfast, he said, “Yes, ISIS is committing acts of terror, but Christians and Jews had committed acts of terror too.” And, he invoked the Crusades and the Inquisition. Now, last I checked the Crusades ended nine hundred years ago. I don’t think it’s asking too much to ask this president to stay in the current millennium. And the reason I say he’s being an apologist is because that argument is the exact same argument that the terrorists use. ISIS, when they are beheading Christians, when they are crucifying Christians, they invoke the Crusades and the Inquisition.
