Obama calls on Muslims to reject ISIS, al-Qaeda

WASHINGTON (TAB, al.com) — President Barack Obama called all Muslims — and the world — to reject the militant ideology of terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) today when he spoke to the United Nations General Assembly. “The terrorist group known as ISIL (or ISIS) must be degraded, and ultimately destroyed,” Obama said. “In the most horrific crimes imaginable, innocent human beings have been beheaded … No god condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. … So the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death.”
