Did Obama Censor the French President Over Islamist Terrorism? [VIDEO]

On Thursday President Obama met with French President François Hollande to discuss ways that the two nations could jointly work to defeat terrorism.


But did President Hollande offend the President’s sympathies towards Islam? The French president dared to describe terrorism as being “Islamist.” And poof! the words mysteriously disappeared from the video.

Here is a transcript of of the possibly ‘offensive’ part of Hollande’s address, with strike-throughs to indicate what was omitted.

Europe has been hit more, given that it is also the target of the terrorists and ISIS. We’ve seen it in Paris last year, as well as in Brussels. And together with President Obama, we worked on coordinating further our commitments, our organizations, our services when it comes to fighting against these terrorists. We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination.

But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition. And we note that Daesh is losing ground thanks to the strikes we’ve been able to launch with the coalition. We are continuing to support Iraq. This is also a decision we have taken, supporting the Iraqi government and making sure that they can claim back their entire territory, including Mosul.

Here is the video showing how the translator’s words had amazingly vanished.

Enter the Media Research Center, which reported how it appeared that the words “Islamist terrorism” had been censored from the video.

They also added that Obama — true to form — would only use phrases like “hands of terrorism,” or “scourge of terrorism” to described the actions of the murderous Islamists.

But lookee here: now the entire video is available, with the White House blaming — what else? — a “technical issue” with the audio which led to a “brief drop” in the English interpretation.

Here’s the full video of the meeting which the White House re-released.

If it was any other President, we’d accept the WH explanation. But this is Obama we’re talking about here, the guy who just can’t use the word “Islamic” or “Islamist” as a descriptor for terrorism. So while President Hollande’s remarks were published in full at the White House website, doesn’t it seem rather curious that the very words used to correctly assign the blame for terrorism — words that Obama just can’t utter — were abruptly missing from the audio?

  • ISIS – Islamists Serial Rapists-Terrorists : Hostis Humani Generis

    The UNSC Resolution 2249 (2015) offers the following salient element that among all terrorist groups constituting a major challenge on a regional or a global scale, ISIS is singled out as a ‘global and unprecedented threat to international peace and security,’ a qualification so far no terrorist group has ever been awarded.

    Thus, being a “global and unprecedented” threat to international peace and security ISIS requires primary attention, it is not inconceivable that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group is still committing genocide and other crimes against the Yazidi minority in Iraq, as a statement by the United Nations commission investigating human rights abuses in Syria had stated last Wednesday, 3rd. August 2016.

    Despite the colourful essence of Public International Law and its’ corps of case scenarios, I find it utterly dumbfounding that despite the mass atrocities of Bosnia & Rwanda as mere examples, the international community finds itself restrained from assisting the innocent Yazidis from the horrendous atrocity crime of genocide that had befallen the Bosniaks/Bosnian Muslims and by the Hutus upon the Tutsis respectively.

    We are supposed to, in fact are required to prevent this crime of genocide (Bosnian Genocide Case) inter alia other crimes as our obligations to our fellow mankind, yet, we fail to understand the gravity of these crimes being perpetrated upon them that challenge their very existence in our shared world. Our Shared World!

    How many more mass graves do we need to uncover to account for such deliberate heinousness?

    John Kerry doesn’t need to convince the world that the Yazidis are facing the incredulous perils of the crime of genocide. Reading the Genocide Convention of 1948 simpliciter, any one will discern the merits of the Yazidis tragic circumstances.

    The predicament of many innocent victims and their families will definitely continue without the essentially effective planning of military actions by the UN Military Staff Committee in ensuring its revival from a long period of dormancy in the pursuit of individual criminal responsibility in the Joint-Criminal Enterprise (JCE) via prosecutions in an UN-sanctioned International Penal/Criminal Tribunal.

    It’s time the UN sets-up an International Penal Tribunal to Prosecute Constitutionally Responsible Rulers, Public Officials or Private Individuals pursuant to Arts. 4 & 6 of the Genocide Convention for the International Crime of Genocide of the Yazidis.

    Excerpts from the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Genocide Convention 1948)

    Article 4 Persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article 3 shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals.
    Article 6 Persons charged with genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article 3 shall be tried by a competent tribunal of the State in the territory of which the act was committed, or by such international penal tribunal as may have jurisdiction with respect to those Contracting Parties which shall have accepted its jurisdiction.



    The Islamist Terrorists have no respect whatsoever for one child’s right to life, what more for anyone’s right to property.

    The innocent children now remain distant memories upon a mural wall.

    The present depiction of such a tragedy validates the fight against this scourge of mankind, hostis humani generis, the enemy of all mankind, pursuant to UNSCR 1373 (2001) & 1566 (2004) to further eliminate impunity and make this world a better place for posterity.

    These are merely examples of my humble contributions in this courageous fight against Islamist Terrorism and the strong assertion of the need to punish these genocidal criminals :
