Statement by the President on the Death of Peter Kassig: "least of all the Muslim faith"?

In this statement, where President Obama insists on calling Peter Kassig by his "adopted" name Abdul-Rahman, taken (or given, who knows now?) after the latter's conversion to Islam in ISIL captivity, there is a sentence that needs some digesting:

ISIL's actions represent no faith, least of all the Muslim faith which Abdul-Rahman adopted as his own.
And no, I don't mean the "adopted as his own" part, false as it may be.

I would rather focus on that "ISIL's actions represent no faith, least of all the Muslim faith" part. Least of all?

"Least of all" still means "especially not" in the dictionary - I was forced to re-check to make sure.

Which means, in this case... WTF it means, really?

Assistance will be welcome.

The Worm still lives in the innocent world of the Indonesian mosque he attended with his Muslim stepfather when he was an adolescent. He knows nothing about Islam, obviously. Just like he knows essentially nothing about anything else. He is a very stupid man.

No one could be that stupid. There must be some other game we just cant' grok at the moment. Although the huge weapon deals with Saudis, Qatar etc. are part of it, no doubt, but not all of it, far from all of it.
