Letter: Obama needs stronger approach

Published: Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 03:34 PM.

I recently read an article about the radical Islamist cleric Omar Bakri, who radicalized one of the men accused of hacking to death a British soldier on a London street. Bakri praised the attacker for his "courage" and said Muslims would see it as a strike on a military target.

Bakri has a young son named Osama, who was named after Osama Bin Laden. Bakri said his son will take up the fight with America some day. This ideology of radical Muslims make them a threat to everyone! They raise their children to hate.

Bakri also mentions how the Muslims in the United States are watered down and moderates. They’re the way the West wants them to be and will never stand for what they believe.

Under this administration, they would like us to believe that there are only a few radical Muslims. But it’s the opposite. There are more radicals around the world than the watered-down not so radical here in America.

I think this administration needs to continue a more vigorous approach to radical Muslim terrorists. Stop trying to sugar-coat it or hurt somebody’s feelings.

There is another generation that is being groomed in the radical ways of Islam. We can’t let our guard down.
