According to reports from Breitbart News, White House National Security H.R. McMaster recently promoted a book called ‘Militant Islamist Ideology: Understanding the Global Threat’. The aforementioned book calls upon non-Muslims to kiss the Quran before handing it over to Muslims. Many people found this to be alarming and a complete contradiction for someone who is supposed to be prioritizing America’s national security.
McMaster’s complimentary endorsement of the Militant Islamist Ideology raised eyebrows as well and reads as follows:
“Militant Islamist Ideology deserves a wide readership among all those concerned with the problem of transnational terrorism, their ideology, and our efforts to combat those organizations that pose a serious threat to current and future generations of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.”
As a result, many people view McMaster as an apologist or sympathizer for Sharia Law. His rhetoric about the dangers of letting a Quran fall on the ground is not helping his cause either. Shouldn’t McMaster be more concerned with doing his job and ensuring the security of our nation rather than lamenting over how not to offend Islamists? Islamists don’t spend an iota of their time worrying about whether or not their religion or ways of life will offend Christians.
The statements and endorsements made by McMaster were heavily frowned upon as evidenced by the American people’s social media posts:

Perhaps McMaster should read the Quran. 109 separate verses demand violence against non-believers. Difficult to describe that as "religion."

Perhaps McMaster would do well to worry less about advocating for and pandering to radical Islam. As a matter of fact, having an individual with this mindset in charge of the national security arguably places everyone at risk. One of the central themes of President Trump’s campaign is “America First.” This means prioritizing this nation’s interests and not focusing on catering to the whims and desires of Islamists.
McMaster has also condemned the term “radical Islamic terrorism,” even going so far as to label terrorists as “un-Islamic.” Why is McMaster still serving as National Security Adviser? Promoting a book that calls for U.S. military servicemembers to kiss the Quran is bad enough, but opposing calling a deadly ideology by name is dangerous. McMaster is utterly and completely unfit for the role he currently occupies. Many Americans are wondering why President Trump has not yet fired him. Having an Islamist supporter or apologist overseeing this nation’s security only serves to place our great country at a severe risk.
