Why do we sit waiting for the inevitable complete war with Islam?

The president says Muslims are radicalized by "embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West." The Quran, however, instructs Muslims to kill, maim and subdue infidels in some 109 verses such as Surah 2.191, "And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter," and Surah 8.012 "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

A recent congressional investigation found that 72 people working at DHS were on the terrorist watch list. Why are there potential terrorists working at DHS?

From listening to the "president's" address, one could conclude that this president is in collusion with Islamic forces that wish to conquer the U.S. and he is just trying to keep Americans calm long enough for full blown war to occur on our soil.

Since the president took office, "the number of visas issued per year to non-friendly, non-waiver residents has jumped by over 50 percent to 9,932,480 last year. The fastest-growing sector of the program is the 'Fiancé Visa' program, known as 'K-1,' which jumped from 30,290 in 2013 to 41,488 in 2014. Terrorist Tashfeen Malik was one of them."

The president says Muslims are radicalized by "embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West." Mr. President, If Islam is the "religion of peace," then how are non-Muslims to know which Muslims follow the radical teaching or the peace loving teaching, when both are taught from the very same book?
