If ISIS Isn't Muslim, Why is Homeland Security Seeking out US Muslim leaders?

Jeh Johnson
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in an interview with ABC’s “This Week,"  that the United States is facing a new era in which a lone-wolf terrorist could “strike at any moment.”

  • Part of this effort is meeting with Muslim community leaders and urging them to counter ISIS's recruitment campaign on social media, which Johnson called “slick” and “effective.” [The Hill]

It has to come from Islamic leaders, who frankly can talk the language better than the federal government can. And so when I meet with community leaders, Islamic leaders, that’s one of the things that we urge them to do.” he said

I have to wonder why no one is accusing them of profiling. 

Obama still claims he doesn't see any connection between ISIS and Muslims. But the number of people sharing Obama's opinion is getting less and less.
