President Obama: fight with more ‘ideas, jobs and good governance’

President Obama called upon a conclave of world leaders at the United Nations on Tuesday to fight violent extremism not just with weapons but with ideas, jobs and good governance, a strategy he “has long advocated.”

“It is not going to be enough to defeat ISIL in the battlefield.”

Obama said at a United Nations summit meeting that military pressure will be insufficient to vanquish groups like the Islamic State: “This means defeating their ideology,” he said. “Ideologies are not defeated with guns. They are defeated by better ideas — a more attractive and compelling vision.”

“We have ISIL taking root in areas that already are suffering from failed governance,” Obama said. “And as a consequence of the vacuum that exists in many of these areas, ISIL has been able to dig in.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered an attack on America and their approach, stating that the American strategy of promoting democratic changes in the Middle East had backfired.

“Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we got violence poverty and social disaster,” Mr. Putin said. “And nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life.”

“We need to win this propaganda war far more effectively than we have to date,” Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain said. The way to do that, he said, is to stop the dissemination of hateful messaging in schools and prisons.

“I believe in freedom of speech, but freedom to hate is not the same thing,” he said.
