Today at the United Nations, President Barack Obama sat next to Iran to give the opening remarks at the Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL & Violent Extremism.
While most his speech was dedicated to the defeat of ISIL (which he claimed had successes over the last year), he also managed to slip in the fact that his White House is promoting the spread of MUSLIM SCHOLARSHIP and working with other nations to do so as well.
According to Obama, ISIS (ISIL) cannot be defeated with a ground war alone, but instead their own ideology must be defeated by “better ideas.”
He then told the international leaders that building off the past White House Summit, he and his administration are working with the nations of the world to “lift up the voices of Muslim scholars, clerics and others.”
