It’s official. In other words, Obama said it, so it must be true – that will be the low information public take on it, anyways. Obama declared on Thursday that Americans, along with Europeans and journalists, are “inviting jihadi violence” by criticizing Islam as well as protesting the immigration of Muslims.

“We’ve also seen, most recently in Europe, a rise in inexcusable acts of anti-Semitism, or in some cases, anti-Muslim sentiment or anti-immigration sentiment,” Obama told a Feb. 19 audience of U.S. and foreign officials and advocates, who met to discuss ways to minimize jihadi violence.
Peaceful criticism of Islamic culture is bad, he suggested. “When people spew hatred toward others – because of their faith or because they’re immigrants – it feeds into terrorist narratives. … It feeds a cycle of fear and resentment and a sense of injustice upon which extremists prey,” he said.
