Muslim Advocate: Walker Is Enabling ISIS 31.8.2015 Crooks Liars

"With this, Scott Walker is actually enabling ISIS by characterizing their acts as being Islamic terrorism," said Robert McCaw, government affairs manager for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "He is taking a peaceful religion of 1.6 billion people and misappropriating it to ISIS, allowing them to wrap themselves in the religion's name and stake a claim to it." McCaw was referring to Walker's first foreign policy address as a presidential candidate, delivered on ...
