Breitbart: SEN. TED CRUZ: ISIS IS THE FACE OF EVIL, IRAN PRESENTS GRAVEST THREAT TO AMERICA
Washington, D.C.- A group of internationally-recognized scholars, national security practitioners, and high-ranking government officials convened on Wednesday at the Defeat Jihad Summit to discuss "The Record to date in Defeating the Global Jihad Movement."
Among the discussants was Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who urged that America must employ a comprehensive strategy to defeat the Global Jihad Movement and prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon in order to preserve the freedom of the United States.
"This is an important gathering," stressed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). "This is a comprehensive, serious strategy in addressing the threat of radical Islamism," the Senator said in complementing the Center For Security Policy's Secure Freedom Strategy.
"If you're not aware of what you're fighting, you're not going to defeat it," said Cruz.
What brings together jihadists groups, such as Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Boko Haram, is the ideology of "radical Islam," explained Cruz.
Cruz added that if Christians and Jews tortured and killed people in the name of their religion, he and the surrounding panel would be the first to condemn the attacks as a perversion of their faith.
