The conservative Wall Street Journal seemed to side with Donald Trump’s call last year to monitor Muslim worship centers as a way to combat terrorism.
In an editorial on Wednesday, the paper chided President Obama for saying Tuesday that even in light of the Orlando mass shooting, he still saw no purpose in using any terms that tie Muslim extremism to terrorism.
“Mr. Obama’s refusal to speak of ‘radical Islam’ also betrays his failure to understand the sources of the Islamic State’s legitimacy and thus its allure to young Muslim men,” the Journal said. “The threat is religious and ideological. … A small but significant fraction of Muslims agree with that interpretation, which is why Western law enforcement agencies must pay more attention to what goes on inside mosques than in Christian Science reading rooms.”
Trump made similar comments in November.
“Well, you’re going to have to watch and study the mosques, because a lot of talk is going on at the mosques,” he said in an interview on MSNBC.
Trump has also hit Obama for declining to admit that many acts of domestic terrorism are committed by Islamic extremists.
