Obama: 'Islam Has Been Woven Into the Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding'Thomas Jefferson v. Barack Obama on Islam"

Islamic terrorism isn't new; Thomas Jefferson created and sent in the United States Marine Corps to deal with it. Obama wants to hold hand and read the Koran.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., February 10, 2016 — One of President Obama’s favorite talking points during the last seven years has been Thomas Jefferson and the Quran he had in the White House library. The president tells this story with such conviction that nobody ever challenges its historical accuracy.
The third president of the United States would be appalled at the accounts given by the 44th president of what actually took place in the 18th and 19th centuries, but Jefferson died 190 years ago. Why worry about a few factual errors in order to make the point more convincing today, as Obama has done?
The Barbary Pirates were Muslim thugs who terrorized ships in the Mediterranean and a vast chunk of the North Atlantic at their height in the 18th century. The word “terror” is the right one. Islamic extremists were every bit as active two centuries ago as they are today.

Before the American Revolution, U.S. merchant ships were protected by Great Britain, but when independence was declared in 1776, the country turned to France for security on the high seas.
Following the war, the newly formed nation had to protect its own shipping fleet, which led to the establishment of the United States Navy.
In 1778, the Islamic pirates of the Barbary nations had become so much of a problem that the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between France and the United States specifically decreed that France would intervene diplomatically to protect captured American sailors and to stop Muslim attacks on our ships.
In 1784, seventeen years before Thomas Jefferson took office as president, he was the United States minister to France. In that same year, Congress chose appeasement rather than war with the Muslim marauders, thus following in the footsteps of European countries that were paying huge bribes to the Barbary States.
The next year, after Algerian pirates captured more American ships, the Dey of Algiers demanded a huge ransom for that era—$60,000. Though Jefferson opposed further payments and proposed a coalition of nations to fight the Islamic forces, Congress voted to pay the extortion money instead.
