Cruz: Obama ‘Encourages Radical Islamic Terrorists’

Monday at the Heritage Action for America’s second annual policy summit, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said President Barack Obama’s lackadaisical attitude toward radical Islam, as demonstrated by his failure to attend the Paris unity march, “encourages radical Islamic terrorists.”

Cruz said, “In the immediate aftermath of September 11, nations of the world stood with America. The nation of France stood with America. It was sad and unfortunate that we have not seen that same leadership with this administration now. And I would note that that lack of seriousness and purpose, that lack of resolve, is profoundly dangerous. It’s dangerous because it encourages radical Islamic terrorists to redouble their efforts and it’s dangerous because nations like Iran see that weakness.”
