Homeland Secretary Johnson suggests term 'violent extremism' used at behest of Muslim leaders
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Sunday that President Obama's decision not to say the actions of the Islamic State is a form of "radical Islam" is at the behest of the Muslim community.
"The thing I hear from leaders in the Muslim community in this country is ISIL is attempting to hijack my religion," Johnson told "Fox News Sunday," referring to the terror group also known as Islamic State, or ISIS.
Johnson said the leaders argue their religion is about peace and brotherhood and "resent" that Islamic State is "attempting to hijack that from us."
