President Obama certainly shows a lot of favor toward Islam. Even the most casual
observer must realize by now that every time the United States has any interaction with
Muslims or Islamic countries, the Muslims always seem to come out ahead. Every coin
toss somehow favors the Muslims. After looking at empirical and anecdotal
evidence — Barack Obama's actions and words, and the claims of his
siblings — I am convinced that Mr. Obama is a Muslim. Most
of the articles I've seen that would support such a conclusion are
posted here. If he is a
Muslim he is also a liar, but that should come as no surprise after reading the material
on this page.
Certainly President Obama is no friend of Israel and he
is systematically weakening America's
defenses — exactly what a Muslim would do.

Why Obama's Iran
deal is a path to war. The Obama administration and its supporters insist that,
although the agreement on Iran's nuclear program now taking shape may not be perfect, the only
alternative is war with Iran. A failure of the nuclear talks, they also contend, would sacrifice
important temporary agreements that now restrict Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Both arguments
are false. Worse, the nuclear deal that the administration is pursuing may make war with Iran more
likely. The world would be safer if the nuclear talks with Iran were stopped now.
This Man Is Dangerous.
[O]ne nation stands out as the most bloodthirsty and violent and dangerous of all. Iran.
From the day the Ayatollah took over, a disaster of kidnapped American diplomats, endless sponsorship of
terror against Americans including the catastrophic bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut more than
30 years ago. Iran is the bankroller of the terrorist Hezbollah. They have been listed at
the top of the world's state sponsors of terrorism for decades now. And, just as the perfect touch,
they are working feverishly to get a nuclear bomb (lots of nuclear bombs) and the rockets to deliver them
to Israel, to Europe, to New York. Iran has already promised to have "a Holocaust in an afternoon"
if they get The Bomb. They are apparently [very] close to getting it. But guess who
Obama has now decided is his best friend and partner in the world? Yes. You got it.
Iran. He's keeping Israel from bombing them. He's trying to prevent the primary branch of
government, the U.S. Congress, from hearing the Prime Minister of Israel speak on how best to keep Iran
from getting a bomb.
Give Obama 'the benefit of the doubt' in Iran nuclear talks. The Obama administration
deserves "the benefit of the doubt" over a pending nuclear deal with Iran, Secretary of State John
Kerry said Sunday, maintaining that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's objections to it
shouldn't be "turned into some great political football."
in Our Time. Is Barack Obama another Neville Chamberlain? I've been reluctant to make
the comparison, but as talks with Iran have unfolded, it's become impossible not to think of the
1938 Munich conference, where Britain and France agreed that strategically and economically vital
Czech territory be ceded to Germany, leading soon after to German conquest of Czechoslovakia and
World War II. America's looming deal with Iran rivals Munich in its unnecessary and catastrophic
recklessness. It is an inexplicable unforced error that will have disastrous consequences unless
Congress, or Israel, does something to stop it.
Will Obama's Iran Deal Be
the Worst Deal Ever Made? To begin with, the agreement is said to have a sunset clause
of 10-15 years. Whatever the number turns out to be, that tells us that Iran is free to do anything
it wants in the nuclear weapons field after a set amount of time, assuming that it hadn't disobeyed the
strictures of the agreement before then — a monumental assumption given past history.[...]
The idea — if it can be called that — behind this sunset clause is a kind of bet
that Iran will turn into a normal country during the time frame, abjuring the fanatical religious doctrines
(global war bringing about the twelfth Imam/Mahdi, etc.) inherent in Khomeinist Shiism that would make
allowing Iran the bomb equivalent to giving a loaded gun to a two year old, only with global implications.
refused to blame Islam for terrorism. That President Obama won't call it Islamic
terrorism; that he believes we shouldn't be on a "high horse" because America and Christians have
done bad things; that Muslims are victims of "bigotry and prejudice"; that his State Department says
it's the lack of jobs, not religion, that fuels ISIS, should come as no surprise. After all, he
said the same thing about 9/11. In 2004, Obama released an update of his 1995 memoir, "Dreams
from My Father," with a little-noticed new preface about the attacks.
hangs Obama in effigy even as it negotiates nuclear deal with US. Just weeks before
Secretary of State John Kerry held new nuclear talks with Iran's foreign minister in Geneva,
Iranians were hanging Kerry's boss in effigy at a huge Tehran-sponsored rally marking the Islamic
Revolution's 36th anniversary, an event that critics say underscores the absurdity of the ongoing
diplomatic effort. The U.S. and Iran are trying to reach a final nuclear agreement by a March 31
deadline against a backdrop of ongoing anti-American hatred in the Islamic republic.
Partners in Peace Destroy Mock U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf. The motives of
Obama and his Iranian-born chief adviser Valerie Jarrett are truly unknown. But their actions make
clear this much: they are intent on seeing Iran become a nuclear power. As for their
rationale, I leave that as an exercise for the reader.
Iran Obsession. The Obama administration values a future relationship with Iran more
than it values the historic relationship it has with Israel. Unless there's a reversal in the
reported deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, all the superficial talk about this extraordinary
friendship between Israel and the United States isn't going to mean much. And the histrionics
surrounding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned speech in front of a joint session of
Congress only confirm that there are plenty of people who are happy about it.
Nuclear Iran Deal Portends "Spectacular Attack" on the U.S.. There is an article you
might want to read on Maggie's Notebook about defense intelligence being told NOT to update Barack
Obama on the bin Laden documents. During a terrorism trial this week, 8 new documents were
presented with information that shows a top al Qaeda operative, Younis al-Mauritani asked bin
Laden's permission to relocate to Iran in June 2010. From there, he would plot terror attacks around
the world. The documents not only showed a mutually beneficial relationship between Iran and al Qaeda,
they give evidence of Iran's presence in Afghanistan. Reports that Iran is cooperating with al-Qaeda on
a "spectacular attack" on the West have been circulating since 2011.
the ObamaCare of Foreign Policy. Secretary of State John F. Kerry met with significant
skepticism at yesterday's House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, not only from Republicans, but
Democrats as well. Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) told Kerry "we're hearing troubling reports
on the scale and duration of the program that Iran may be allowed as part of a deal." He noted "very
disturbing" reports that the administration "would ease limits on Iran's production during the later years
of an accord ... [as] an attempt to bridge the difference between the two sides over how long an agreement
should last." Kerry did not deny those reports.
Praises Qatar, No. 1 Sponsor of Hamas, for Partnership Against Terror. President Obama
on Tuesday [2/24/2015] praised the emir of Qatar for the Gulf State's partnership against terrorism,
less than a year after a senior U.S. Treasury Department official raised concerns about Qatar's open
support for Hamas and financing of jihadists in Syria. "Qatar is a strong partner in our
coalition to degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL [the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS] and I
express my appreciation to his highness for the work that they have done in coordinating with other
members of this coalition," Obama said alongside Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani in the Oval Office.
House Lowers Bar for Iran Nuke Deal. For anyone hoping a nuclear deal with Iran might
stop the Tehran government from destabilizing the Middle East or free its political prisoners, the
Obama administration has some bad news: It's just an arms control agreement. As details of a
proposed pact leaked out of the Geneva talks Monday [2/23/2015], administration officials told us they will ask
the world to judge any final nuclear agreement on the technical aspects only, not on whether the
deal will spur Iranian reform.
Thanks to Obama,
Iran will be getting the Bomb. Earlier this month, the Washington Free Beacon
reported on comments in Iranian media that the United States was desperate to get a deal done on the
country's nuclear ambitions." "Americans are begging us for a deal on the negotiation table," are
the exact words used by Mohammad Reza Naghdi of Iran's Basij, a paramilitary group under the authority of
the country's Revolutionary Guard. Iran's English language
service has followed this up by quoting former American diplomat and adviser to the Senate Republicans James
George Jatras who is saying basically the exact same thing.
Synopsis: Obama hates America so much, he is trying to get us nuked!
Photos From Iran's Revolution Day 2015 Demonstrations You'll Never See In Legacy Media.
Curiously, a massive wave of vicious anti-American sentiment in Iran has been utterly ignored by vintage
media, even as the Obama administration does its level best to position the regime as a nuclear power. [...]
Experts indicate that the deal being worked out by the Obama administration fails to address Iran's nuclear
weaponization program whatsoever. Which should work out well in the future, what with its development
of ballistic missiles, its support of terror groups worldwide, and its virulent hatred of America.
Try Liveshot's menu. Leave it to John Forbes Kerry to identify one of the root causes
of terrorism — the lack of gourmet dining opportunities in the Islamist terrorist, I mean
"violent extremist," community. This blindingly brilliant insight from America's Gigolo came last
week at the White House Don't-Call-It-Islamic-Terrorism Conference. This is the confab where
Obama again mentioned America's Muslim founding fathers. You know, like Osama Ben Franklin.
Then they floated their Jobs for Jihadis program for the genocidal ethnic cleansers, I mean aspiring
rappers, who are turning their lives around. You've surely seen the list of proposed new Islamist
anti-poverty agencies: Be-Head Start, the Jobs Corpse, etc.
President's First Insult. President of the United States of America Barack Obama had
not been president for more than ten minutes when he slapped American Jews in the face (and by
extension Israel and all Jews). [...] In fact, although the settling of the original Thirteen
Colonies was almost exclusively the handiwork of Christians from northern Europe, by the time of the
American Revolution there were already six Jewish communities, one in each of the major colonial
cities. [...] In American cities every December, merchants decorate their shop windows with "Merry
Christmas" & "Happy Hanukah" signs. The country has most definitely been a Judeo-Christian
enterprise. Muslims, by contrast, played no role in the making of America. There is no evidence
of a Muslim presence before the 20th century. Yet here on that January day was the brand new
American President orating that the U.S. was "a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus..."
In this formulation, the Jews have been bumped back to third place, elbowed, so to speak, aside by
Muslims who take their place.
furious over Pentagon leak on secret anti-terror training camp. The Pentagon let slip
that one of its training camps to help fight Islamic State terrorists is in Jordan —
information the pro-U.S. kingdom had specifically requested be kept private, and the latest gaffe in
a series of sensitive leaks coming out of the Department of Defense. In order to hide its flub,
which was first announced to reporters during a briefing last week, the Pentagon has scrubbed its
public transcripts of any mention of the training camp.
and 'Violent Extremism'. Regarding Islamic violence — the greatest world
evil since Nazism and Communism — the president of the United States, his administration,
and the left generally live in a make-believe world, a world of denial. In their world, Islam is
today, and has always been, a religion of peace; Muslims are threatened by Islamophobia; Christians
are wiped out by "violent extremists;" European cartoonists incite radical Muslims to murder them;
fundamentalists of all religions are equally problematic; the hundreds of millions of Muslims who
support violent Islamists have nothing to do with Islam, but the Inquisition was conducted by
normative Christians; and slavery was defended in the name of Christ, but no mention is made of the
far more ubiquitous (and ongoing) slavery in the name of Allah or of the fact that the movement to
abolish slavery in the West was due entirely to Christians.
deal could allow Tehran to make bomb. Secretary of State John Kerry met in Geneva
Monday with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif amid reports that a deal was taking shape
that might allow Tehran to build nuclear weapons in its final years. Energy Secretary Ernest
Moniz, meanwhile, met separately with Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran's nuclear program, on
technical details before joining the broader talks.
enemies are better off now than they were six years ago. Iran and Vladimir Putin are
both better off, and Islamist extremists are better off beyond their wildest dreams of six years
ago, but that about does it. Israel is not better off — its relations with us are worse
than the weather; Ukraine is not better off — it is being slowly dismembered; Syria,
Libya and Yemen are not better off — they had dictators then, but were not yet a war
zone — Denmark, France and Australia are not better off — their cities were
not yet the targets of Islamist extremists; and Iraq — the subject of so much intense
misrememberance — is perhaps the least better-off of them all.
House Whitewash: Koran Verse Featured at 'Extremism' Summit Edited Out Call to Crush Jews. Penny
Starr of CNSNews.com has reported that the second day of this past week's White House summit on "Countering
Violent Extremism" was initiated by an unidentified "Muslim prayer" exclusively: "no other religious text
was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press." Imam Sheikh Sa'ad Musse Roble,
president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, recited a "verse from the Koran" in Arabic. An
English translation of the verse was read next by Imam Abdisalam Adam of the Islamic Civil Society of America.
Fight Against the Ideology-With-No-Name. The terrorists are animated by an ideology,
and we cannot understand what Obama called "the nature of the enemy" without knowing this ideology.
You cannot go into a war of ideas without understanding the ideas you are at war with. Yet,
throughout the two speeches, he never mentions the substance of the enemy's ideas once.
Is Taking the Side of the Terrorists. The nonsensical counter-radicalization
conference and State Department spokeswomen's blatherings aside, an even bigger problem is that in
the war between the Moslem governments we were allied with and the terrorists, Obama has consistently
taken the side of the terrorists.
Islamic Terrorists Is Our Foreign Policy. Obama says that we are not fighting a war on
Islam. What he leaves out is that under his administration the United States is fighting in a civil
war that is taking place within Islam. It's not a conflict between the proverbial moderate Muslim
and the raging fanatic. That was an outdated Bush era notion. Instead Obama has brought us into a
fight between Muslim governments and Muslim terrorists, not on the side of the governments we were allied with,
but on the side of the terrorists.
Governor: ISIS threat reveals Obama's failure as commander in chief. President Obama
has shown the country that he is incapable of being commander-in-chief of the United States of
America. One of the defining military challenges of our time is the spread of radical Islamist
terrorism, and President Obama has focused more on criticizing America and lecturing the American
people than on devising a plan to hunt down and kill these extremists. Every day, Islamic State
is expanding its atrocities, killing more innocent people, all while the president and his administration
are refusing to admit we are at war, giving us history lessons about the Crusades, refusing to call out
radical Islam as the root problem, and contending that jobs programs are the key to defeating terrorism.
Obama Love America or Islam? Love, of a person or of a country, is not judged by what
we say. It is judged by what we do. [...] What are the things that Obama is passionate about?
In his first days in office, he signed a number of executive orders. Of his first five orders, three
involved Muslim terrorists captured and held in Gitmo. His third executive order was about the
"humane" treatment of terrorists. His fourth executive order sought to close Gitmo.
Like the man who can't wait to get away from his wife so he can call his mistress, Obama made his
priorities clear from the start.
kept reform Muslims out of summit on extremism. The White House excluded members of a
prominent group of reformist Muslims from its terror summit this week, apparently because President
Obama rejects their argument that such groups as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria are actually
motivated by Islam. A group of 23 prominent Muslim reformers signed a full-page ad in the Sunday
New York Times on Jan. 11 asking "What can Muslims do to reclaim their 'beautiful religion'?"
But Obama and officials throughout his administration deny any connection between Islam and the
terrorists beheading and burning their victims in a reign of terror in the Middle East.
vs. Obama. Unlike [George] Washington, who put forth that the president should set
policy, the current president cannot figure out how to fight the terrorists. At a news conference in
August, President Obama stated, "I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a
strategy yet." Congressman Tom Rooney does not disagree with President Obama, "The president still
hasn't given us a winning strategy to defeat ISIS. He withdrew from Iraq too quickly, without
leaving behind any forces to maintain stability, and that's turned into a disaster. I am very
concerned about the general feeling of detachment we're seeing from the president."
Lies. Whereas many presidential lies protect us; Obama lies are protecting our
enemies: ISIS marches on; Iran gets closer to the bomb as Obama rejects calls for more sanctions.
Obama lies are insidious because they wriggle their slimy way through his delicate psyche,
untethering him from the vast world beyond self or golf course. When reality dare intrude into his
bubble of self-deceit it elicits cognitive dissonance, prompting his auto defense mechanisms to blast the
interlopers as phony, or blame it on hyperbolic social media. Meanwhile, ISIS marches on, Iran gets
closer to the big one, and the real interloper is our supposed Commander-in-Chief.
Defenders of the Faith Apologize for America. "Defender of the Faith" is one of the
British sovereign's titles. Of course, Britain has an official faith, the Church of England.
The United States has no state religion, and if it did, it wouldn't be Islam. Nevertheless, Barack Obama
and his minions have set themselves up as official interpreters and defenders of the Muslim faith.
This doesn't stop with insisting that Islam has nothing — nothing! — to do with
Denials Of Islamic Terrorism Bring A Silver Lining. Ever since the Paris attacks, when
Muslim terrorists shouted "Allahu akbar" as they slaughtered people in the name of their god, the
Obama administration has continued to twist itself into lexicological pretzels, insisting that Islam
had nothing to do with those attacks or any others committed by self-declared mujahedeen around the
world. Indeed, the just-concluded White House summit on "Countering Violent Extremism" is a
perfect example of the rhetorical and logical cul-de-sac President Obama has crashed into. It was a
community-organizing confab dedicated to a problem the community organizer in chief refuses to acknowledge
exists. He found himself arguing that Islamic terrorism is an oxymoron, like "jumbo shrimp" or "good flan."
The Editor says...
What's wrong with flan? I like flan.
Islam 'Woven into the Fabric of Our Country Since Founding'. In his bloviating speech on Thursday [2/19/2015]
at his summit on countering violent extremism, President Obama bent over backwards to make nice with Islam. Not only
were terrorists not Muslim, President Obama stated, but Islam played a crucial role in America's founding. "Here in
America," Obama stated, "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." Obama seems
significantly more comfortable with this characterization of the historic role of Islam than he is with the non-fictional
actual historic role of Christianity and Judaism in the American founding.
Opens 'Extremism' Summit With Muslim Prayer, No Other Faiths Allowed — Biden Says Christians Are
Murderers. We are learning more and more about Obama's supposed conference on "extremism" and
one thing we've discovered is that Obama had the thing opened up with a Muslim prayer. But no other
religions were allowed to participate in the event. Worse, Vice President Joe Biden was then heard
saying that it is Christians who are the violent murderers.

the 'Countering Violent Extremism Summit' at the Intersection of Islamists and Leftists. You may understandably
think of it as an ISIS jobs fair, but the ongoing confab in Washington is officially known as President Obama's "summit" on
"Countering Violent Extremism." That being the case, many Americans seem surprised at the appearance of Salam al-Marayati,
leader of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). After all, the White House is having a public hissy fit over the
upcoming speech to Congress by Obama's bête noire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An odd time,
one might think, for the POTUS to be so chummy with a Muslim activist best know[n] for theorizing, right after the 9/11
attacks, that "we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list."
Dangerous Historical Moment. America has convinced its European partners to drop tough
sanctions against Iran. In the manner of the Allies in 1938 at Munich, they prefer instead to charm
Iran, in hopes it will stop making a nuclear bomb. The Islamic State has used almost a year of
unchallenged aggression to remake the map of the Middle East. President Obama had variously
dismissed it as a jayvee team or merely akin to the problems that big-city mayors face. Europeans
pay out millions to ransom their citizens from radical Islamic hostage-beheaders. Americans handed
over terrorist kingpins to get back a likely Army deserter.
House Summit on Violent Extremism Opens With Muslim Prayer — No Other Faiths Represented. A
Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on "Countering Violent Extremism,"
but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press. Imam Sheikh
Sa'ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, Minn., recited a "verse from the Quran"
following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.
None Dare Call It
'Islam'. First of all, Islam has not "been woven into the fabric of our country since
its founding," as Obama said yesterday in his speech about combatting terrorism. [...] Every
American should attend to what Obama has said about combating terrorism. Here he is last September:
"Now let's make two things clear," he said. "ISIL is not 'Islamic.' No religion condones the killing
of innocents." "ISIL is not 'Islamic.'" Really? Was the Ayatollah Khomeini "Islamic?" How
about Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Erdogan: is he "Islamic"? A few years ago, Erdogan told the world
that the phrase "moderate Islam" is "ugly" because "Islam is Islam." Democracy, he said, is just an express
stop on the train whose destination is Islam. Who, in fact, speaks for Islam? Who gets to say what
it is and isn't?
Obama lies by omission.
The see-no-evil president doesn't glimpse Islam as the common denominator behind recent ugliness
from Libya to Syria to Nigeria and points beyond. The speak-no-evil president dare not name the
religion as the inspiration for vile acts but instead maintains that a perversion of the message of
the Warrior Prophet motivates them.
'looks scared' to call terrorists Islamic says ex-CIA director. The former director of
the CIA said Thursday [2/19/2015] that President Obama "looks scared" to called members of al Qaeda, the Islamic
State group and other terrorist organizations "Islamic." When asked by CNN host Don Lemon if Mr.
Obama was too politically correct, Mr. Woolsey said, "The President is sort of a world champion of
political correctness, and I think that he's let it really run too far here. It might be different
if he was taking a stern position in the Middle East and [other places] that are causing huge
problems," Mediaite reported Thursday [2/19/2015]. Mr. Lemon then asked, "Does it affect the
strategy? The president said that we have to address the root causes of radicalism —
poverty, the lack of education and so on."
There's no way Iran will ever help fight al Qaeda. Not long after his inauguration in
January 2009, President Barack Obama penned a letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader
of Iran. As a presidential candidate, Obama had promised to conduct "tough, direct diplomacy" with
the Iranians. And Obama figured, correctly, that all diplomatic entreaties would end up on
Khamenei's desk. So, the newly elected president decided to write Iran's ultimate decision-maker
directly. And he has written several letters since. According to the Wall Street Journal,
which first reported on the correspondence, Obama sent his latest letter to Khamenei in October of last year.
on Comey Snub: Didn't Want Terror Summit to Be 'Overly Focused on Law Enforcement'.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday [2/20/2015] that FBI Director James Comey was not invited
to the White House Summit to Counter Violent Extremism, because they didn't want the perception that the
conference "was overly focused on law enforcement tactics." "We wanted to make sure that there
wasn't a perception that this conference was overly focused on law enforcement tactics. Certainly
law enforcement is a very important role to play. That's why we had the nation's top law enforcement
official in attendance," Earnest said.
Chief Not Invited to Meeting on Countering Violent Extremism. The White House did not
invite the most senior American official charged with preventing terrorist attacks — the
F.B.I. director, James B. Comey — to the three-day conference this week on countering
violent extremism in the United States and abroad because the administration did not want the event
too focused on law enforcement issues, according to senior American officials.
"Violent Extremism" Summit: An Exercise in Community Organizing. Andy McCarthy points
out that, even as the White House throws "a public hissy fit" over the upcoming speech to Congress
by Benjamin Netanyahu, it chooses to be "chummy" with Salam al-Marayati, the Muslim activist best
known for saying, right after the 9/11 attacks, that we should put the State of Israel on the
suspect list. You have to hand it Obama, he knows who his friends are. It's America's
friends that he hasn't a clue about, and that's giving him the benefit of the doubt.
It Take The End of the World For Obama To Recognize ISIS As 'Islamic'? Doing a verbal
tap dance around Islamic theology and extremism, even calling it "whatever ideology," Obama and his
policy team have it completely wrong. We have to own the issue of extremist Islamic theology in
order to defeat it and remove it from our world. We have to name it to tame it.
rejects as [an] 'ugly lie' [the] notion that [the] West is at war with Islam. U.S.
President Barack Obama on Thursday [2/19/2015] urged countries to tackle violent Islamist militancy around the
world and rejected as "an ugly lie" suggestions that the West was at war with Islam.
Imam Obama defends "true peaceful
nature of Islam". Far superior at cover-up and lie spreading than any garden variety
Muslim cleric, Obama tried today [2/18/2015] in an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times to have all believe
that even in the face of thousands of Christian and Jew deaths at the hands of now rampaging radical Islamist
terrorists, the "true peaceful nature of Islam" is worthy of defense by the current occupant of the Oval Office.
How do you say "Horse Hockey" in Arabic? Because, according to this squatter on the White House who tries to con
the world he personally put al Qaeda on the run, groups like ISIS promote a a "twisted interpretation of religion that
is rejected by the overwhelming majority of the world's Muslims."
'Islam Has Been Woven Into the Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding'. We hear a
lot about the United States' Judeo-Christian heritage, but according to President Obama, "Islam has
been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." That's what the president told a
White House conference on "countering violent extremism" on Wednesday [2/18/2015]. Obama has said
similar things in the past: [...]
Media Gives 'Very Distorted Impression' of Muslims. President Barack Obama blamed the
media Thursday in a speech as part of the White House Summit to Counter Violent Extremism for
offering a "distorted impression" of Islam. "In some of our countries, including the United
States, Muslim communities are still small and relative to the entire population, and as a result,
many people in our countries don't always know personally somebody who is Muslim. So the image they
get of Muslims or Islam is in the news, and given the existing news cycle, that can give a very distorted
impression," he said.
The Editor says...
Yes, I would say a long list of "isolated incidents" might give
someone a vivid impression of what Islam is all about, and it certainly does not point to
a "religion of peace."
Mr. Obama pretends to understand Islam better than Ayatollah Khomeini, who once said,
“People cannot be made obedient except with the sword.” Does Nidal Malik Hasan understand
Islam less clearly than Obama does? How about all those people who are (still) out to get Salman Rushdie — do they misunderstand Islam?
I think they do, and I think Barack H. Obama understands Islam better than he would have us believe.
admiral: Obama is 'anti-American, pro-Islamic'. Retired Adm. James "Ace" Lyons, also a
former deputy chief of naval operations, said that the administration's approach to the multiple
confrontations with Muslim-based enemies follows a string of White House failures to strike Islamic
terrorists stretching back to the Carter era's failure to strike at Iran's leadership after the 1979
hostage taking. "We've had many opportunities to changed the course of history. It hasn't
mattered whether it's a Democratic or Republican administration, we've failed every one of them," says
Lyons, who headed PacFleet from 1985 to 1987.
dances around reality as ISIS plays the tune. After months of taking flak for his lack
of a coherent strategy to combat ISIS, President Obama came up with an answer. Unfortunately, it's
"Let's pretend." In a speech to a conference Wednesday as well as an op-ed in the Los Angeles
Times, our president did set forth an agenda for countering what he insisted on calling "violent
extremism." But his approach puts the top priority on the West acknowledging the terrorists' economic
and political grievances. That won't convince anyone that Obama understands the nature of the
threat. Nor will it do much to convince groups like ISIS that he's serious about defeating them.
Won't Back Egypt's Attacks on ISIS. The Obama administration was given multiple chances Wednesday [2/18/2015]
to endorse a long-time ally's airstrikes on America's biggest enemy at the moment, the so-called Islamic State. Over
and over again, Obama's aides declined to back Egypt's military operation against ISIS. It's another sign of the
growing strain between the United States and Egypt, once one of its closest friends in the Middle East.
Fight Extremism, Obama Calls on US to Embrace Its Muslims. In the fight against
violent extremism, President Barack Obama has argued the U.S. has one thing going for it that Europe
doesn't: a long tradition of warmly embracing its immigrants, including Muslims.
Department blames uptick in recent ritual human sacrifices on global unemployment rates. I can't
believe that I have to write this, but here goes: no, people do not burn other people alive, or slit their
throats in a mass human sacrifice, or set up slave markets, or crucify other people, or throw them off buildings,
or any of the other things that death cultists do, just because those death cultists don't have access to
better jobs. Those death cultists like their jobs. It feeds something in their souls. You'd
think that the State Department would know better... well, no, not really: but they used to be better at
hiding that. Six years of this administration's reverse Midas touch is taking its toll.
A Lying in Winter.
Can you see it now? It's all there in bureaucratese. [Marie] Harf wasn't speaking out of turn; no
loose cannon. Harf came on the Chris Matthews show to deliver a message. They're going to uplift

Harf it was only because it sounded so ridiculous most thought she had lost her mind.
summit on 'violent extremism' (by nobody in particular) Obama stresses need to placate Muslims. Ever
since the day after 9/11, our leaders have been cautioning us against blaming all Muslims for the acts of terror
done in the name of Islam. And the fact is that there have been remarkably few hate crimes against Muslims,
to the great credit of the American people. Jews are far more risk of hate crime, in fact. This
disproportionate concern for "unfair target[ing]" and desire to exempt all Islamic institutions from scrutiny
rests on the dogmatic assertion that there is absolutely nothing in Islam for
non-Muslims to worry about.
'Notion That The West Is at War With Islam Is An Ugly Lie'. Speaking again at the
White House Summit to Countering Violent Extremism [2/18/2015], President Obama asserted that the
notion that the United States is at war with Islam is "an ugly lie." He encouraged all Muslim
leaders to directly challenge the notion that somehow the West was at war with Islam. [...] Obama
criticized those who referred to Islamic State terrorists as Islamic, arguing that they were only
offering the terrorists legitimacy.
Extremists Have "Legitimate Grievances". As the White House kicks off day-two of a
summit on combating generic violent extremism, President Obama has published an op-ed in the Los
Angeles Times titled, "Our fight against violent extremism." While the administration has overtly
refused to specifically name "Islamic" terror, the piece finally acknowledges (albeit inadvertently)
the regular existence of violence inside Islam. Still, Islamic extremism isn't specifically named
and won't be during the three-day conference at the White House this week.
defends the 'true peaceful nature of Islam'. President Obama defended the "true
peaceful nature of Islam" on Wednesday — saying terrorist groups like ISIS promote a
"twisted interpretation of religion that is rejected by the overwhelming majority of the world's
Muslims." In an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times, the commander-in-chief provided a
possible preview of a speech later at a White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, in which
community leaders from across the country gathered to discuss how to protect people from "extremist
ideologies." "The world must continue to lift up the voices of Muslim clerics and scholars who
teach the true peaceful nature of Islam," Obama wrote.
Dept. Official: ISIS Terror Motivated by Joblessness. Study after study has proven
that there is no connection between Islamist terrorist recruitment and poverty, unemployment and
lack of education. This was the conclusion of a survey of 400 Al-Qaeda members all the way back in
2004, as well as the determination of a Queen Mary University survey published last year. Simple
observations and basic logic falsifies this Marxism-rooted theory that terrorism is basically the
result of class warfare and social inequality. The top terrorists are highly educated and usually
come from the middle class or higher. And, obviously, the purpose of having a job is to improve
one's life. Joining a terrorist group isn't exactly a promising career choice. The issue here
isn't the errors made by Harf. It's the fact that this discredited premise continues to permeate the
national security apparatus over a dozen years after the 9/11 attacks. Harf wasn't speaking off the cuff.
Obama Sounds Like Christians Killed Muslims. "[President Obama] sounds like a
community organizer talking about outreach to communities. If you listen to the president today, and
his emphasis on Islamic grievances, on reaching out, on making Muslims feel comfortable and not
excluded, you would think that we are responding to the execution, the beheading of 21 Muslims on
behalf of 21 extreme Christians somewhere in the world. It is so divorced from reality, as if the
problem is the lack of understanding of the Muslim grievances, particularly in the Middle East.
We talk about root causes as if that's going to make any difference whatsoever. [...]"
at extremist summit: 'We are not at war with Islam'. The White House found itself on
the defensive Wednesday over the administration's downplaying of Jewish and Christian victims of
Islamist terrorism, as President Obama hosted a summit seeking to gloss over Muslim connections to
violent extremism. Mr. Obama told the conference that the U.S. is not at war with the Muslim
world but it needs to counter the religious ideology that groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic
State are using to recruit young fighters. And he defended his avoidance of the term "radical
Islam" to describe terrorists.
Obama's op-ed in the LA Times, for what it's worth:
Obama: Our fight against violent extremism. [Scroll down] That pluralism has at
times been threatened by hateful ideologies and individuals from various religions. We've seen
tragic killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012 and at a Jewish community center in Kansas
last year. We do not yet know why three young people, who were Muslim Americans, were brutally
killed in Chapel Hill, N.C. But we know that many Muslim Americans across our country are worried
and afraid. Americans of all faiths and backgrounds must continue to stand united with a community
in mourning and insist that no one should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look
like, or how they worship.

Thank you, Imam Soetoro. Unfortunately, Colleen Hufford and Brendan Tevlin are unavailable for comment.
Muslim Immigration Not Going to Stop. Obama tried to counter the Paris Unity March,
which his administration boycotted, with a seminar on "Countering Violent Extremism". CVE continues
to mean pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood and refusing to deal with Islamic terrorism. Obama is
claiming that the solution is to teach the true peaceful nature of Islam while continuing to push the lie
that the Chapel Hill killings targeted Muslims. Biden is cheerleading all that Muslim immigration.
The 'Jobs For Jihad
Delinquents' Program. Instead of killing jihadists, keeping them off of our soil,
locking up their poisonous spiritual agitators and shutting off their terror-funding pipelines,
President Obama called on America and the world to "invest" in unnamed immigrant "communities"
vulnerable to unnamed extremism. Some of the most generous welfare states on the planet have
suffered horrific jihad attacks this year. Liberal Denmark's soft-on-jihad rehab program has been a
disaster. But that hasn't stopped State Department spokes-babbler Marie Harf from mewling
incessantly about "combating poverty" to combat ISIS.
seeks to defeat terrorism by wishing it away. The White House is holding a three-day
"summit" on "countering violent extremism." If there was ever need of more evidence that Barack
Obama just doesn't understand the problem, one need look no further than his op-ed in today's Los
Angeles Times on the subject. Let's look at this rather amazing literary effort section by section.
The Editor says...
One thing is certain: If it's anything close to an "amazing literary effort," Barack H.
Obama didn't write it.
House Summit Features Muslim Leader with Record of Defending Terror Groups. The Muslim Public Affairs
Council (MPAC) posted a picture on Twitter confirming that its President, Salam Al-Marayati, is in attendance at the
White House's Countering Violent Extremism Summit, which kicked off on Tuesday [2/17/2015].
Government Outraged That White House Hosted Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists. The peerless
Middle East Media Research Institute, better known as MEMRI, serves up another major story certain
to be ignored by our betters in legacy media. To wit: the government of one-time ally
Egypt is outraged that the Obama administration is fomenting civil unrest — again —
in that country by propping up the Nazi-aligned terror group known as the Muslim Brotherhood.
Egypt: U.S. State Department Hosting
Of MB Delegation — A Slap In The Face Of The War On Terrorism. Several
members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) recently reported on their social media accounts that a
delegation of MB members had visited the U.S. State Department on January 27, 2015 and met with
officials from the State Department and White House, as well as with members of Congress and
representatives from American research institutes. According to the MB reports, the purpose of the
meeting was to recruit support for their opposition to the 'Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi regime in Egypt."
On its part, the American administration was embarrassed by the publication of the visit, but openly
acknowledged it a few days later.
Secret Iran Talks Deserve Scrutiny. Over the weekend, the Wall Street Journal
reported that the exchange of secret letters between President Obama and Iran's Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has resumed. The letters are believed to concern Obama's offer of cooperation
with Iran against ISIS terrorists if Tehran will agree to a deal on its nuclear program. These
letters have clearly been a crucial element in the six-year administration effort to forge a new
détente with the Islamist regime. But they must also be placed in the context of the
ongoing dispute between the U.S. and Israel about the nuclear talks.
Obama Refused to Share Intel With Egypt and Jordan. The Egyptian government asked the
Obama administration for information on ISIS targets after 21 Coptic Christians were brutally
executed. Obama refused. Egypt wants to defeat ISIS. Jordan asked for intel and drone support but
Obama refused. They have been bombing ISIS and want to defeat them. The Kurds have begged us for
support and they can't get it. Barack Obama won't help the Nigerians who are fighting Boko Haram.
When Obama "freed" Libya all the U.S.-backed government in Libya wanted was training for their military and police.
Obama refused. Even though ISIS made it clear that they were killing the innocent Coptic Christians because they
were Christians, Obama refused to acknowledge it today [2/16/2015] in the White House statement.
Cicero and Obama.
[Scroll down] We now know that Obama recently met with men who call for the destruction of the
United States. In fact, there is no pretense anymore as Obama maintains that one of his duties is to
protect and defend Islam while serving in the White House. In fact, he has stated that he "considers
it part of [his] responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of
Islam wherever they appear." (Apology Tour Speech at Cairo University in June 2009). Yet, that
'responsibility' has never been part of the job description of President of the United States, but Obama
[has made] it a goal to make certain Islam is defended at all cost.
a Manchurian Candidate? Obamacare and the sabotaging of the immigration system were
bad enough, but they are absolutely trivial compared to what is going on now. We have the next
thing to a jihadist in the White House. From the inability to name Islamic terrorists as Islamic,
to the failure to name Jews as the objects of homicidal anti-Semitism at a kosher market, to the
complete omission of the word Christian when 21 Christians have their heads cut off (simultaneously!)
for being Christian, we have in the Oval Office not only the worst president in the history of our country,
we have the worst person to be president. And now he is opening the door to a huge number of Syrian
refugees, who knows how many of whom may be members of ISIS, al Qaeda or some group we haven't even heard of
yet. [...] And if this weren't enough, Obama is colluding with the Iranian ayatollahs as if he were an [sic]
Shiite imam, not only to help them get nuclear weapons, but to form a permanent alliance with the United
States against the Sunni world.
and the Muslim Gang Sign. Is President Obama a Muslim? A lot has been written about
this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August's U.S.-African
Leaders' Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light. [...] Maybe it was Obama's idea of
a joke, but that is unlikely. The finger in the air was a position statement brazenly stated.
His entire administration has been a promotion of Islam at home and abroad, and just cataloging the
evidence would fill a book. He has made this country cozy for Islam, from ordering NASA to make
Muslims feel good about themselves to calling ISIS beheading victim Peter Kassig by the Muslim name
that he had adopted in the vain hope of saving his life. [...] Obama is comfortable with Islam's
extreme. He arms such people throughout the Middle East. He has let them into our
does this weird hand sign flashed by President Obama mean? Is this hand sign, flashed
by President Obama at the recent U.S.-African Leaders Summit, just a random gesture? Or does it
have a deeper meaning?
defends Islam at all cost. It seems like a long time ago that Colleen Hufford was the
victim of a savage jihadist attack when a devout Muslim sliced off her head. But it was just a few
months ago. And if you recall, after the attack Obama had no comment. None. At least not about
Colleen Hufford. Or jihad. He did, however, have a comment that was so important the message was
hand-delivered and read aloud to members of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City where Obama expressed
his sympathy for what a rough month the Muslim community had following the attack while offering thanks to all
of them. Beyond that, Obama remained silent on the matter, deferring to the FBI. [...] Whoever would
have imagined that the President of the United States would be facilitating terror? And whoever would
have imagined that such a person would be elected not once. But twice.
Word for this Administration: Islamisant. The president is usually quick to describe violent extremist
attacks by "random folks." We are surprised that he did not call the murder of the twenty-one Egyptian Copts
"workplace violence." After all, weren't they kidnapped from their place of employment? The Obama
administration infamously called the murders at Fort Hood in 2009 workplace violence. They were carried out
by a jihadist who for years had been spewing violent Islamist threats, and who had been protected by Pentagon
bureaucrats who were more interested in a false notion of diversity than in security of our troops.
Islamisant is a fair characterization of President Obama's attitude from Day One. He boasted to
The New York Times in 2006 that he could still recite the Shahada — the Muslim call to
prayer. He learned it as a boy in Indonesia.
Harf: I'm "too nuanced" for you. Touting the rollout of Great Society liberalism
worldwide as the answer to religious fanaticism betrays a mind-boggling stupidity. Jobs programs
don't quite cut it when you're in the 72 virgins business. This is where the administration's
comprehensive denial of the motive forces driving the terrorists is key. They aren't looking for work.
They aren't looking to get rich. They aren't looking for early childhood education. They aren't
looking for daycare programs. They've got something else on their mind, something else that is taboo to
speak of in the higher reaches of the Obama administration.
If there's one thing this country needs, it's more Syrians!
Expects to Quadruple the Number of Syrian Refugees Brought Here. The United States has "a long tradition
of welcoming refugees," and it expects to welcome thousands more of them from Syria in 2015 and 2016, despite concerns
about foreign fighters, the State Department said. "The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011.
We're likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat
higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016," spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday
President Joe Biden Calls for Steps 'Beyond Force' to |Fight Islamic Extremism. Vice
President Joe Biden kicked off a three-day White House summit on combating violent extremism with a
call for "answers that go beyond force." "We need answers that go beyond a military answer,"
Biden told a group of 40 participants in a roundtable meeting at the White House. The meeting's
agenda was to identify effective local strategies to counter extremist messages targeting vulnerable
minority youth in American cities, officials said.
leaves al Qaeda war resolution intact, keeping Guantanamo open. The push for a new war authorization to
fight the Islamic State group does nothing to change the 2001 fight against al Qaeda, leaving the detention facility at
Guantanamo Bay open and meaning President Obama's successor could refill the prison he has rapidly been emptying.
Mr. Obama called for repealing the 2002 resolution authorizing war in Iraq but wants to leave the 2001 authorization
passed in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks intact, meaning the U.S. is still formally in combat and the prison
can remain operational.
President Bush Got Involved trying to Stop Obama's Pro-Iran Tilt. It's becoming increasingly obvious
that Obama has sold out American foreign policy to Iran. What happened in Yemen hasn't changed that.
And former American allies are getting increasingly desperate to be heard. [...] Obama isn't just selling out
Israel to Iran. He's also selling out the Sunnis in Iraq to Iran.
White House Partners with ISIS-Linked Group. A Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic
State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism
conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday [2/18/2015]. The so-called Summit on Countering Violent Extremism
comes as President Obama seeks formal authorization from Congress to wage war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS
or ISIL). The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups,
operates mosques in and around Boston.
President Obama, America's
Nero. Like Nero of ancient Rome, Obama fiddles, takes selfies and does Internet interviews while
the world burns. Is he trying to distract himself, or us? To use a sports analogy, is he trying to
"run out the clock" and leave office before terrorist fires consume us? We have a president who is
mismatched to the times in which we live. He is unserious when seriousness is required. The
tyrants of the world have taken notice and rightly calculated they can pretty much do what they want
without paying a heavy penalty.
The United States is under direct and sustained attack by the combined forces of the tyrannical far left and
radical Islam, punctuated by humiliation abroad and despair at home. We are losing because unlike Walter
Mitty, whose delusions were confined to his own head, Barack Obama has been permitted to play out his most
destructive leftist and pro-Islamic fantasies in real-time from the most powerful office on the planet.
Jordan, Egypt bomb ISIS, Obama holds a summit on extremism; He plans 2 speeches. Whenever Barack Obama
needs the appearance of taking action on some hot issue in the news, he calls for a summit of some kind. Gun
violence. Bullying. Healthy eating. Oh, look! Another one begins today in
Washington: The White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. It's so very important that Obama
will throw not one but two speeches at it during the next three days.
Closer Look at the White House Statement On The Murder of Egyptian Coptic Christians.
The White House released a statement yesterday [2/15/2015] regarding the brutal murder of the Coptic
Christians in Egypt. Within the statement itself you'll note the absence of the word "Christian"
which continues the administration's avoidance narrative: [...]
extremism' off limits at White House terrorism summit. The White House will kick off a
three-day summit Tuesday on combating violent extremism on social media — but the
administration won't focus on Islamic extremism and won't even mention the term. "You can call
them what you want; we're calling them terrorists," a senior Obama administration official said
Monday [2/16/2015]. The determination not to mention Islam or Muslims comes as ISIS continues its
murderous spree in the name of Islam, most recently beheading 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
weak and unnecessary war authorization. President Obama has asked Congress to authorize the use of force
against the Islamic State, declaring in his State of the Union address "We need that authority." No, he doesn't.
Obama has been using force against the Islamic State for six months now. Between his inherent authority as commander in
chief and two existing authorizations for the use of military force, he has all the authority he "needs" to defeat the Islamic
State. What is holding Obama back is not the lack of congressional authorization but his own stubborn unwillingness to
employ the kind of force his military commander says is necessary to win.
a Statesman would do Today. Obama's basic triviality as a human being and politician
comes from his failure to understand the difference between civilization and barbarism. Time and
time again, Obama can't understand the most basic needs of daily life: Security rather than anarchy,
liberty rather than oppression, basic morality rather than sadistic murders against innocent scapegoats.
Churchill would recognize ISIS in about five seconds. Reagan would, too. But Obama is still
trying to pretend all those snuff videos aren't real.
Goes Golfing AGAIN as World Mourns Christian Martyrs. As the international community mourned
the deaths of 21 Egyptian Christians who were beheaded in an Islamic State (ISIS) video released on Sunday [2/15/2015],
President Barack Obama spent the day golfing in Palm Springs, California. Obama also played golf on
Sunday when the videotaped slaughter of Coptic Christians went viral globally.
Terrorism, Our President Is Tone-Deaf. I am the last person to suggest that the President of
the United States needs to issue a statement every time someone gets shot in a foreign country. But in
the context of the administration's wrong-footing of the Charlie Hebdo/Paris deli attacks, its response to the
murders in Copenhagen is puzzling. President Obama is busy fundraising and golfing in California.
To date, he has been silent on the Danish terrorist attacks.
Department on Islamic State: We can't win 'by killing them' — need to get them
jobs. Marie Harf, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, said America can't win
against the Islamic State "by killing them" and ought instead to focus on addressing what she
claimed was the root problem — their poor economy — and help them get jobs.

Wars have been fought for centuries, and in every case of which I am aware, they were won or lost based on
destruction and annihilation. Job fairs won't win a war against ruthless 7th-century murderers.

Expects to Quadruple the Number of Syrian Refugees Imported into U.S.. Far be it from
me to challenge the genius of the Hillary/Kerry State Department, but one wonders whether Psaki
needs a fungo-sized konk in the noggin from our legendary clue-bat. According to State Department
spokeserson Marie Harf, ISIS can be stopped in its tracks with a unique military strategy: offering
the burgeoning Caliphate members entry-level jobs. Say, changing oil at JiffyLube or refilling the
troughs buffets at Golden Corral. Of course, an accurate representation
of ISIS' goals would require candor and resolve, which is why you'll never hear a peep about any of that
from the most transparent administration evah.

Upset with Obama, Kerry, 'Heretics' for 'Slogan' That Islam Is Religion of Peace. The new issue of ISIS' magazine

Did Obama's FBI Just Release Chicago Bomb Plotter and Narco-Terrorist Emad Karakrah?
Several years ago the FBI had arrested Emad Karakrah and charged him with a series of crimes.
Karakrah was involved in several plots and crimes including narco-terrorism and a 2009 plot to bomb
Oprah Winfrey's Chicago TV studios. But for some inexplicable reason, the FBI just released this
dangerous man out of prison. This guy has a long history of terrorist activities. Karakrah was
involved in a far-reaching narco-terrorism plot according to extensive reporting by Judicial Watch and
when he had a ISIS flag waving from his car — the same car he threatened to use as a bob [sic]
carrier. But now, for some inexplicable reason the FBI announced that on January 7, Karakrah
reached a plea deal and was released from jail.
FBI 'neutered' by Muslim Brotherhood. A veteran national-security specialist disputes
FBI Director James Comey's contention that restrictions on information-gathering are the main
hindrance to uncovering ISIS conspiracies in the U.S. Clare Lopez, who served in the CIA for
20 years and is senior vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy, said
the problem isn't with working-level FBI agents, who know the jihadi threat is "nurtured" in mosques.
The hindrance is from "higher-level" FBI management and the national security leadership, she insisted.
She said the FBI for too long has allowed itself "to be influenced by operatives of the Muslim Brotherhood
and its affiliates whose objective is to neuter U.S. national security defenses."
Obama's so selfie absorbed.
[Scroll down] Recent events show a disturbing picture of the emerging world order he favors.
It starts with bringing Iran in from the cold, a plan Obama has been working on since taking office in
2009. His concessions to the mad mullahs' nuclear program are alarming, but that is only a piece of
his strategy. As national defense veteran Michael Doran writes in Mosaic magazine, Iran is key to
Obama's "thinking about the role of the United States in the world, and especially in the Middle East."
He argues persuasively that the president wants a grand bargain that would, in Obama's own words, "integrate
Iran into the international community" and "make it a very successful regional power."
Unconstitutional Attempt to Shift the Blame for His Losing ISIS Strategy. On Wednesday [2/11/2015],
President Obama proposed for Congress's consideration an authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) against
the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL). The jihadists are already being fought — albeit not nearly vigorously
enough — under existing AUMFs. So Obama's proposal, which would gratuitously repeal one of the prior
AUMFs, is unnecessary. It is, in addition, so pathetic a concoction of lawlessness and aimlessness that, in a
healthier political climate, Congress would not give it the time of day.
Benefits from Our Inaction Abroad? [Scroll down] The best insight into the
president's motives is supplied by a very troubling piece in Mosaic magazine by the Hudson
Institute's Michael Doran. The president has been consistent, Doran shows, from his first days in
office. "Obama based his policy of outreach to Tehran on two key assumptions of the grand-bargain
myth: that Tehran and Washington were natural allies, and that Washington itself was the primary
cause of the enmity between the two." The president has been secretive and dishonest about
negotiations with Iran — and aides have hinted of his intention to block the Senate's
ratification power by not calling a nuclear agreement a treaty. All of Obama's seemingly
inexplicable decisions, Doran argues, from Syria to Iraq to the spurning of the Green Revolution in
2009, are of a piece. Obama believes that once a nuclear agreement is reached, Iran will become a
stabilizing power in the region and the world.
ISIS Agrees to
Three-Year War. ISIS commanders today announced that they had agreed to President
Obama's time limit of three years for the war between the Islamic state and the United States and
its allies. "We think three years is enough time to decide who's best," an ISIS spokesman said
today. "There is much wisdom to Obama's approach. It's kind of like a soccer match.
At some point, you have to call time, and whoever is ahead is the winner." President Obama's proposed
authorization of military force lasts for three years, after which the next president would have to
try to extract a new authorization from Congress if he decided to continue the war.
White House omits Jews
as ISIS targets in war proposal. Bipartisan criticism of President Barack Obama's
proposed authorization of force against ISIS mostly has to do with the use of U.S. troops and limits
on the commander-in-chief. But one Republican lawmaker noticed something else that he calls quite
troubling — omission of the word "Jews." Freshman Lee Zeldin is the only Republican Jewish
member of Congress, and says it immediately leapt off the page that the President's proposed
resolution specifically singles out several ethnic groups threatened by ISIS: Iraqi Christians,
Yezidis and Turkmens, but says nothing about Jews.
Were These People Not
Christians? The White House Sunday issued a statement condemning the barbaric beheadings
of more than a dozen Egyptian Coptic Christians, but somehow the statement failed to note that that
they were killed because they were Christian — or even that they were Christian at all.
[...] President Obama's determination to portray Islamist terrorism as merely "extremism" untethered
from any religious motivation has now crossed the line from absurdity into profound offensiveness.
Mention of 'Christians' In White House Statement Condemning ISIS Beheadings. On Sunday
night [2/15/2015], White House press secretary Josh Earnest issued a statement condemning the actions of Islamic
State Militants after they released a video of the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. The
statement from the White House described the victims as "innocents" and "citizens," but made no mention
of the victims' faith. "The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one
Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists," the statement read, offering condolence to the
victims families. The ISIS video was directly targeted at Christians, citing their faith as the
reason for their death.
When Muslims are victims, Obama is very quick to speak on their behalf.
says N.C. shooting victims may have been targeted as Muslims. Although police haven't
determined yet whether three Muslims in North Carolina were murdered in a parking dispute or because
of their religion, President Obama suggested Friday [2/13/2015] that they were victims of a hate crime. "No
one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look
like, or how they worship," Mr. Obama said, saying he and first lady Michelle Obama were offering
condolences to the victims' families.
Announces FBI Probe Into Chapel Hill Shootings. President Obama issued a statement
announcing that a FBI probe had been launched to investigate the Chapel Hill shootings which claimed
the lives of three Muslims. "No one in the United States of America should be targeted because of
who they are, what they look like or how they worship," said Obama. This stands in sharp contrast
to Obama's assessment in his interview with Vox that last month's attack in a Jewish grocery store in Paris
which claimed the lives of four Jews was random. This despite the fact that the man responsible
for the killing called a radio station and stated, "I targeted them because they were Jewish."
Obama DIA Chief: Administration 'Struggling to Define' Threat of Islamic Extremism.
President Obama has sent a proposal to Congress for the authorization of military force to fight
against the threat of IS. Flynn said the president had used the term "Islamic State." This action
recognizes that there is a faction of radical Islam that wants to commit terroristic threats. "If
the enemy is calling themselves that, why are we having such a difficult time defining that," Flynn said.
Brotherhood: White House Official Met Us at State Department. A Muslim Brotherhood
member who recently was hosted at the State Department along with several of the Islamist group's
key allies now claims that a White House official also was present in that meeting, according to
recent remarks. Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member and former Egyptian
parliamentarian, was in the United States late last month along with a delegation of fellow
Brotherhood leaders and allies.
House Stalled ISIS Rescue. Foley, Sotloff, and Mueller Died. The U.S. did not think
British intelligence was good enough to act on and waited a month to launch a mission to rescue
ISIS's hostages. By then it was too late.
White House had intel for seven weeks before launching rescue attempt for Kayla Mueller and other
hostages. We already knew they'd dragged their feet in greenlighting a rescue mission
for the hostages. After James Foley was murdered last summer, a defense source told Toby Harden that
he'd heard the White House had waited nearly 30 days to say okay after special ops told them they were ready.
The Editor says...
This is exactly the behavior one would expect if Obama were a Muslim himself. Which is why
I believe he is a Muslim.
White House dithered for nearly a month before launching rescue. The United Kingdom
gave the Obama administration intelligence in June 2014 about where in Syria the ISIS terror army
was holding its American captives, but the White House dithered and missed its opportunity to rescue
them, according to a shocking report published Thursday [2/12/2015]. U.S. and British officials
said the administration sat on the information for nearly a month before launching a military raid
to recover American aid worker Kayla Mueller and journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. By
the time a rescue was mounted on July 4, 2014, the hostages had been moved.
emerge on Kayla Mueller's capture, captivity at ISIS hands. Fox News first learned
details about Mueller's capture and captivity last fall, and, at the request of U.S. officials who
cited national security concerns in ongoing efforts to secure her release, agreed to hold off on
reporting them. A similar request was made by a spokeswoman for the family and agreed to by Fox.
Following the confirmation Tuesday of Mueller's death, Fox News can now report those details, though some
specifics are still deemed too sensitive for publication.
Minions Defend Him For 'Random Shooting' Deli Remark. Four Jews were murdered because
of their faith, but Obama, in one devious sentence, reduced the heinous nature of the attack to
something akin to "workplace violence." (Sound familiar?) He couldn't even bring himself
to say the word "kosher."
Obama: Iran Won't Develop Nuclear Weapons Because It's "Contrary" To Islam. [Scroll
down] This follows four years of Obama saying one thing, and yet delivering an outcome totally
divergent to what is claimed. Here is a timeline of the Obama administration's Iran policy, as
the world's most dangerous nation and leading state sponsor of terrorism moves inexorably towards
acquiring the world's most dangerous weapon.
Knew Location of U.S. Hostages; Waited 7 Weeks to Order Rescue that Failed. Here is
Fox News' Catherine Herridge reporting that President Barack Obama had actionable intelligence in
May 2014 as to the whereabouts of hostages held by ISIS — down to the location, including
the building and the floor plan of the building. Yet, Obama waited seven weeks to
order the rescue attempt! As you remember, by the time Obama got around to giving the go-ahead
for the Special Forces rescue attempt, the hostages had been moved. [Video clip]
horrors don't exist in Obama's world. At Tuesday's press briefing, White House
mouthpiece Josh Earnest said something disgusting — I don't know how else to describe
it — about the massacre at the Hyper Casher kosher supermarket in Paris one month ago.
"The individuals who were killed in that terrible, tragic incident," Earnest droned, "were killed not
because of who they were but because of where they randomly happened to be." Take it from someone
who keeps kosher: Nobody "randomly" happens to be in a kosher supermarket, not even in Manhattan.
Obama's Fundamental Transformation
of America now global. Lib-left world 'leaders' , soft as fleece on Islamic terrorism,
go out of their way to hide the meaning of Islamic terrorism under a wooly blanket called "extremism".
The upside-down world they create leans heavily on projection and distortion in which they add insult to
injury by smearing their perceived dissidents as "extremists" and watch with glee as the mainstream media
repeat the smears. As bad as it is, count on it getting much worse. By the end of 2015, President
Barack Obama's high-handed influence on elections in other countries aims to add fellow Islamic deniers to
the Western world roster.
According to Iran's Supreme Leader, "It Would Be Contrary To Their Faith To Obtain A Nuclear
Weapon". At a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel President
Obama addressed the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran. According to the Supreme Leader
of Iran, said Obama, "it would be contrary to their faith to obtain a nuclear weapon."
Islam to Christianity. It is important to analyze these words — because the
president of the United States spoke them in a major forum, and because what he said is said by all
those who defend Islam against any criticism. Referring to Islamic violence, the president
accuses anyone who implies that such religious violence "is unique to some other place" —
meaning outside the Christian West — as getting on a "high horse." Is this true?
Of course, not. In our time, major religious violence is in fact "unique to some other place," namely
the Islamic world. What other religious group is engaged in mass murder, systematic rape, slavery,
beheading innocents, bombing public events, shooting up school children, wiping out whole religious
communities and other such atrocities?
about Obama's offensive speech at the National Prayer Breakfast.
it bleeds, it leads... to denial by Obama. John [Hinderaker] did a great job of
ripping President Obama's pathetic musings on terrorism, as served up to Matthew Yglesias of
Vox.com. I want to focus on Obama's claim that the media "absolutely" sometimes overstates the level
of alarm people should have about terrorism. Obama offered no evidence to support this claim. He
merely asserted it, adding that he doesn't blame the media for following the "the famous saying... if it
bleeds, it leads." That's big of him. But in what instances does Obama believe the media gave
inordinate coverage to terrorist blood-letting? ISIS's beheading of hostages? The murders at
Charlie Hebdo and the kosher deli in Paris?
Susan Rice Repeat Claim to Have 'Halted' Iran's Nuclear Progress. More than two weeks
after saying during his State of the Union address that an interim agreement with Iran had "halted
the progress of its nuclear program" — a claim since disputed — President
Obama repeated the assertion in his National Security Strategy report, released on Friday
[2/6/2015]. "We are currently testing whether it is possible to achieve a comprehensive resolution
to assure the international community that Iran's nuclear program is peaceful, while the Joint Plan of
Action has halted the progress of Iran's program," Obama wrote in the introductory letter to the NSS.
on Iran Negotiations: 'What's the Rush?'. At a news conference today [2/9/2015] with
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Obama was asked whether nuclear negotiations with Iran
were headed for another extension. His response, in part: "What's the rush?" "I think there was
always the assumption that although the interim agreement lasted a certain period of time that we
would probably need more time to move forward," Obama said.
meeting with Muslim leaders included president of Hamas-tied ISNA, other Islamic supremacists and
subversives. [Scroll down] Let's look at this group. What are they working
on? They claimed victory in pressuring the already Sharia-compliant LAPD into changing the way it
handles Islamic suspicious activity reports. Is counterterror the focus of any of the work MPAC is
doing? Go to their website, mpac.org. Is there even one word addressing the tens of thousands of
jihad attacks, the oppression of non-Muslims in Muslim countries under the Sharia, Islam's misogyny
and dehumanization of women? Is any of that worthy of mention on their website? No.
Their objective is to impose Islam upon the secular marketplace.
Muslim Brotherhood Comes To The White House. The Obama White House has finally
released the names of the fourteen Muslim "leaders" who met with the President this past week. Among
the group — which included a comedian, along with a hijab-wearing basketball player and a
handful of left wing activists — were a select few individuals with disturbingly close
ties to the global Muslim Brotherhood.
Thanks to Obama, the World Is Finally Figuring Out How to Fight ISIS. Yes, it's
unfortunate that the US has a president, Barack Obama, who consistently sees things from the Muslim
point of view. [...] With a pro-Muslim commander-in-chief, and with the administration insisting
that "climate change" is the greatest threat we face, it shouldn't be a surprise that the villainous
Islamic State is on the march in the Middle East.
On the one hand, we discover that Obama warmly welcomes "Muslim leaders" including "members of known
jihadist groups." And on the other, he "stuns and horrifies Americans, and indeed Christians around
the world not to mention victims of Islamist horror" with his bigoted rant at the National Prayer Breakfast.
At what point can it be definitively acknowledged that Obama's loyalties are not with the United States?
Moreover, this man's disregard for humanity is breathtaking and terrifying.
Calls Terror Attack on Paris Jews 'Random' Shooting. President Barack Obama has called
the terror attack on Jews in a kosher supermarket in Paris last month an act of random violence,
rather than a terror attack or an antisemitic attack. [...] The president calls the attackers
"violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris."
State Dept. admits lying about meeting with Muslim Brotherhood. So anyway this non-terrorist group
was hosted by the State Department, and in typical Obama administration fashion, the circumstances of the meeting
were fabricated. As the Free Beacon writes, "The State Department admitted on Monday that it misled reporters
about a recent delegation of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and allies who were hosted for a meeting with officials at
Foggy Bottom." I love the way it says "misled," the kinder, gentler way to say taqiyya.
Obama: What the heck is wrong with you? Barack Obama was asked about [the] gruesome
murder that the Islamic savages filmed and then released on Tuesday [2/3/2015]. The photo-op
president of the United States was in the middle of another Obamacare promotional event when a
journalist asked him about the death of the Jordanian pilot. Mr. Obama, instead of reacting with
the horror that real Americans or even any sane individual has over this shocking murder, seemed to
be seriously irritated that someone would dare interrupt his photo-op.
changes objective in war on ISIS from 'destroy' to 'defeat'. President Obama is changing the
objective in the war against the Islamic State from "destroy" to "defeat." Military analysts say
there is a big difference.
Names of Seven American Muslim Leaders at White House 'Anti-Muslim Bigotry' Meeting.
The White House has still refused to name the "American Muslim leaders" with whom President Obama
met to "discuss a range of domestic and foreign policy issues." According to a White House
statement on the President's meeting, the domestic issues discussed were the "Affordable Care Act,
anti-Muslim violence and discrimination, the 21st Century Policing Task Force, and the upcoming
White House Summit on Countering Violence Extremism." On the foreign policy front, "the President
discussed the need to continue countering ISIL and other groups that commit horrific acts of violence,
purportedly in the name of Islam," while also congratulating Muslims on their "remarkable contributions" to
America. Breitbart News has uncovered the names of seven of the American Muslim leaders in attendance.
The Editor says...
When has Obama ever met secretly with a group of Christian leaders?
Day Before Denouncing Christianity, Obama Held Secretive
Meeting With Islamic Leaders. Yesterday [2/5/2015] Obama once again made good on his
promise to "stand with the Muslims" when he responded to the latest ghastly atrocity by the Islamic
State by absurdly blaming Christianity for slavery and denouncing the Crusades. On the previous day,
he attended a religious meeting more to his liking. [...] Considering the malevolent ultra-radicals
he openly consults with (e.g., Al Sharpton) and even appoints to positions of great power (e.g.,
Eric Holder), the imagination balks at who must have attended this meeting for the Regime to want it
kept secret. Members of the terror umbrella group the Muslim Brotherhood were likely present,
given Obama's record of support for it at the expense of Western interests.
history and the failure to recognize a world threat. If you don't know which side the
president is on, you should probably be forgiven. It often appears HE doesn't know which side he is
on. Last week had to be an all-time low not just for this president, but for any president in
history, in terms of looking weak and vacillating, if not downright pusillanimous, in the face of
the enemy. The enemy, in case you need a scorecard, is Islamic expansionist jihad. The
tactic is terrorism waged with shameless barbarity, and the goal is worldwide domination in the form
of a Sharia-law-based caliphate.
Group's Enthusiastic Invitation to Obama After Christianity Comments. The nation's largest
Muslim group is inviting President Barack Obama to visit an American mosque, enthusiastically embracing
the president's controversial comments at the National Prayer Breakfast this week comparing past Christian
misdeeds to the Islamic State. [...] Obama met with 15 Muslim leaders at the White House Wednesday [2/4/2015],
but the White House has not yet released the names, only that they were "American Muslim leaders."
a Civilization Endures is Determined by How it Confronts Evil. Are Americans becoming
complacent to the violence in our midst? Obama certainly appears to be. In the fight
of good versus evil, he is siding with evil.
Patience': White House Unveils National Security Strategy. President Obama issued a
national security strategy to Congress this morning calling for "strategic patience" to face
challenges ranging from rampaging terrorists to Vladimir Putin on the march. "America leads from
a position of strength. But, this does not mean we can or should attempt to dictate the trajectory
of all unfolding events around the world," Obama wrote in the preface of the report. Global
challenges, he added, "require us to take our responsibilities seriously and make the smart
investments in the foundations of our national power." The 35-page document mentions "Islam"
just twice — in spelling out the formal name of ISIL, and stating, "We reject the lie
that America and its allies are at war with Islam."
as Narcissism. Members of the Obama administration have insisted that the Taliban are
not terrorists. Those responsible for the recent Paris killings are not radical Islamists. The
Muslim Brotherhood is largely secular. Jihad is a "legitimate tenet of Islam." And "violent
extremism," "workplace violence" or "man-caused disaster" better describe radical Islamic terrorism.
Domestic terrorism is just as likely caused by returning U.S. combat veterans, according to one report by
a federal agency. What is the point of such linguistic appeasement?
White House Won't Reveal Who Attended Obama's Secret Meeting With Muslim Leaders.
President Obama met with American Muslim leaders this afternoon, according to the White House
schedule, but so far the administration is unwilling to reveal who attended the meeting, which was
closed to the press. The White House released a readout of the meeting explaining that Obama
discussed "a range of domestic and foreign policy issues" including Obamacare, police fairness,
anti-Muslim discrimination, and the upcoming Summit on Countering Violence Extremism.
quietly hands out names of Muslim leaders he met with privately. The White House has
finally divulged the names of American Muslim leaders who met with President Obama this week,
including Imam Mohamed Magid, who has advised the administration on formulating responses to
incidents that Islamists consider offensive. After stonewalling journalists for two days about
the names of the participants at the meeting Wednesday [2/4/2015], the White House quietly attached the
list of attendees to the end of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening [2/5/2015].
Democrats Formally Announce an Alliance With Hamas and Boycott the Israeli Prime Minister's Speech
to Congress? This sort of thing must pose quite the head-scratching conundrum for many
in the American Jewish community. If they support their far left ideology, they also must support
the Nazi-backed, Islamofascist movement and all it entails.
1. Obama is entertaining Muslim
Brotherhood leaders in the White House and at the State Department
2. Obama is doing his level
best to ensure Iran continues its work on nuclear weapons
3. Obama is doing his level best to
ostracize Israel and ridicule its self-preservation instinct
4. Obama continues to legitimize the
tactics of Hamas
5. Obama refuses to call the Islamic state "Islamic"
And Democrats, instead
of speaking out, are in lockstep with him.
denied request from Jordan for Predator drones in Islamic State fight. The Obama
administration this year turned down a request from Jordan for Predator spy drones that would help
it locate targets in the war against the Islamic State. The refusal, disclosed by a House Armed
Services Committee member, has gained attention since Jordan has emerged as a critical player in a
U.S.-led coalition to destroy the Islamist terrorist group in the days after it released a video of
its execution by fire of a captured Jordanian military pilot.
ya think? Obama says ISIS 'appears only interested in death and destruction'. Now, we
all know by now Barack Hussein Obama prides himself on being cool and aloof. Last summer when ISIS
beheaded an American, Obama denounced it at a brief photo-op it, then played a long round of fist-bumping
golf with pro athlete pals. Obama skipped the funeral of the first U.S. general killed in combat in
decades because he was on vacation. [...] No wonder we've never seen Obama donate blood. He doesn't
have any. Or passion. Or humanity.
Worst Terrorists Skype as Part of "Humane Treatment". In the latest of many fringe
benefits extended to the world's most dangerous terrorists the Obama administration is allowing
Guantanamo Bay prisoners — including a senior Al Qaeda operative — to speak
with family via video chats similar to Skype. The captives are "high-value" detainees locked up
in a special top-security wing of the military compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba.
extremist terrorism: The scourge that Obama dare not name. To the average person, it's
pretty clear we're at war with Islamic extremists. Yet, to hear President Obama tell it, we are not
technically at war, and even if we are, he wants you to believe religion has little to do with it.
He and his surrogates have repeatedly refused to say the words "Islamic extremism" or "radical Islam" when
describing our enemies in groups like Al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, ISIS and Boko Haram, just to name a few.
Response to ISIS Murders: Better Stick to the Golf. [Scroll down] The clue to
Obama's dreamy bemusement lies in the words: "whatever ideology they are operating off of, it's
bankrupt." Go on Barack, take a quick stab at that ideology thing. Are they — Islamic
State — really an ideological terrorist cover for Presbyterianism? Radical Quakers?
Mormons, Jews, Hindus or pastafarians? Is that their political/religious orientation?
Still Don't Know Why Obama Wants Deal with Iran. [Scroll down] The secret talks
began in 2008, before Obama was even elected, and the back channel, as I was the first to reveal,
was retired U.S. Ambassador William Miller, who confirmed the story to me and others. In other
words, Obama entered the White House with the intention of forging an alliance with our most
dangerous enemy in the Middle East. That fact has to be the baseline of any serious analysis of our
government's policies. Which takes us straightaway to the great unanswered question:
Why does the president want this alliance?
To Host American Muslims At The White House — Closed To The Press. President Obama plans
to meet with American Muslim leaders at the White House, the day after a video of a Jordanian pilot being burned
alive was released by Islamic State terrorists. The meeting will take place later this afternoon [2/4/2015],
according to the White House, but it will be closed to the press according to the schedule. Photographers
will also be blocked from the event.
Department admits it lied about Muslim Brotherhood visit. This is a serious and
shameful incident that the mainstream media can be counted on to brush aside. The Muslim
Brotherhood is the central Sunni coordinating mission for jihad, the conquest and subjugation of the
world to the dictates of sharia law, and the supremacy of Muslims over infidels. The Egyptian
government has identified the MB as a terrorist organization. [...] By falsely claiming that Georgetown
University sponsored and funded the delegation, the State Department attempted to legitimize its visit
with a veneer of academic respectability, making it seem like a courtesy call since they were already
in the neighborhood.
Dept. Misled Reporters About Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood. The State Department
admitted on Monday [2/2/2015] that it misled reporters about a recent delegation of Muslim
Brotherhood leaders and allies who were hosted for a meeting with officials at Foggy Bottom.
State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki claimed last week that the controversial delegation of
key Brotherhood leaders and allies had been "organized and funded by Georgetown University."
However, the university denied this is the case when reached by the Washington Free Beacon.
West To Congress: Censure Obama For Being 'Islamist Sympathizer'. "Well, this is what
happens because weakness is enticing for your enemy and let us go back and remember even in 2009
when President Obama went to speak in Egypt at that university there in Cairo he requested for the
Muslim Brotherhood members to be front and center for his speech. So you know there comes a time
when we really have to honestly say, you know, whose side is President Obama on?" West said.
"If we can't name the enemy we cannot begin to deal with it."
Administration's Epidemic Speech Tic. [Scroll down] "This follows a series of semantic exercises
in which the shoe bomber is dismissed as 'deranged' and the Fort Hood shootings are described as a "workplace incident'.
The great cartoonist Ramirez mocked this linguistic legerdemain this week, but it's not really funny. I think it's a
serious speech tic and it seems to be catching. "Why would the administration think calling these monsters 'insurgents'
could disguise the terrorist nature of their acts? What distinguishes them from 'terrorists' attacking civilians, our
troops, our contractors, our interests and allies in particularly brutal fashion?
Are the Metaphysics of Islamic Denial? After six years, it is no surprise that the
Obama administration does not see the Taliban as "terrorists" or that it will not associate "violent
extremism" with radical Islam or just Islam. After all, when Maj. Hasan murdered U.S. soldiers it
was nothing more than "workplace violence," as if he were a disgruntled post office employee of the
1970s. Our two top intelligence chiefs assured us that the Muslim Brotherhood was "largely secular"
and that jihad "was a legitimate tenet of Islam." Add in "workplace violence" and the old "overseas
contingency operations." Do we remember that Ms. Napolitano's Department of Homeland Security warned
us about right-wing returning veterans as the most likely to terrorize us? When someone blows up
people at the Boston Marathon, beheads a woman in Oklahoma, or puts a hatchet in a NYPD officer's head,
he is not a terrorist or proselytizer fueled by Islamic hatred of non-Muslims as much as mentally confused.
Does Have a Strategy. The Obama administration has not formulated a consistent strategy to cope with
the advance of second-generation Islamic terrorism. It is confused by the state upheavals in the Middle East.
It is surprised by the aggression of Putin's Russia and the ascendance of an autocratic China. Our allies in Europe,
much of democratic Asia, and Israel all worry that the U.S. is rudderless, as it slashes its military budget and
withdraws from prior commitments.
Downplays Terror Threat. The president has been under intense scrutiny for how he has
handled the Islamic State. His downplaying of their threat to national security, calling them a "JV
squad" has provider fodder for Obama's critics. In his interview with Fareed Zakaria, the president
offered a line of thinking that could not be any more different than that of his predecessor.
We Should Stop "Overinflating" Importance Of Terror Groups As If "They Are An Existential Threat" To
U.S.. [Quoting Barack Hussein Obama] ["]When you look at ISIL, it has no governing strategy. It can talk about
sitting up the new caliphate but nobody is under any illusions that they can actually, you know, sustain or feed people or educate
people or organize a society that would work. And so we can't give them the victory of overinflating what they do, and we
can't make the mistake of being reactive to them.["]
The Editor offers a rebuttal...
Islamic terrorists have no interest in developing the ability to "feed people or educate people or organize a society"
because they have a myopic worldview based on perpetual outrage, destruction and death. Building cities and
schools is the least of their concerns. School work isn't necessary for cradle-to-grave warfare.
Dithers While Terrorism Escalates. Islamists were responsible for 80 percent of 17,958
deaths from terrorism worldwide in 2013, according to the Global Terrorism Index of the Institute for
Economics and Peace, an Australian think tank. Deaths from terrorism have risen 500 percent
since 9/11/2001, with the major players being the so-called Islamic State in the Middle East, Boko
Haram in Africa and al-Qaida. Islamists kill someone somewhere every five hours, on average,
says the Religion of Peace website.
Hagel Admits He Was Pressured by The Obama White House To Release GITMO Detainees. It
has long been suspected that President Obama took the direction to empty GITMO of detainees as a
strategic maneuver once he was politically unable to put them into Federal DOJ custody for trial.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel confirms the pressure in that regard. President Obama and his
leftist ideologues want GITMO closed. Sending the detainees to Qatar or Mid-East allies became the
politically strategic direction.
Admits Disagreement with WH Over Pressure for Swifter Release of Gitmo Detainees. In an
interview with CNN that aired during Friday's [1/30/2015] "The Situation Room," former Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel admitted there was some disagreement between he and the Obama White House over the pace of the release of
Guantanamo Bay detainees during his tenure. In her line of questioning to Hagel involving the prisoner
swap of five Taliban Guantanamo detainees for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara
Starr got Hagel to admit there had been some pressure from within the White House.
Security Adviser Mohamed Elibiary Goes on Hate-Filled Anti-Christian Rant. Obama
administration Muslim adviser Mohamed Elibiary is no stranger to regular PJ Media readers. In
September, Elibiary was unceremoniously removed from his fellowship position with the Department of
Homeland Security, which he tried to spin as a "resignation," but letters sent to members of Congress
by DHS officials indicated he would not be reappointed.
Is Openly Colluding with the Enemy. We are in the middle of a hot war in the Middle
East, with constant terror attacks all over the world, including the United States, Europe, and
Asia. The enemy is called violent Islam, or radical Islam, or fascist Islam, or reactionary Islam,
or merely "orthodox Islam." We constantly waste time quibbling about the name. But we know the
enemy by now. [...] Obama's half-brother Malik Obama is a big Muslim Brotherhood money man. The MBs
have espoused jihad against the modern world since 1928, when their organization was founded. Malik
"oversees Muslim Brotherhood investments worldwide," and that means buying up politicians, like
you-know-who. Malik is also a funder of Hamas, which has an identical war theology to ISIS's.
says terrorists not motivated by true Islam. Criticized for avoiding the phrase
"Islamic extremism," President Obama said he doesn't want to alienate the majority of peace-loving
Muslims as the U.S. fights to defeat terrorist networks around the world. "I think that for us to
be successful in fighting this scourge, it's very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent
of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we're looking for — order, peace, prosperity," Mr.
Obama said on CNN. "And so I don't quibble with labels."
once again refuses to call battle with terrorists a war against radical Islam.
President Obama has again refused to call the battle with terrorism in the Middle East a war against
radical Islam. In his latest interview, the Commander-in-Chief agrees certain factions have
perverted the religion having embraced a 'nihilistic, violent, almost medieval interpretation of
Islam'[.] But he insists that such labels hurt efforts to root out radical ideologies in Muslim
communities which have been tainted by groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda.
Obama Trying to Kill President Bush? It's still unclear whether there is any Gitmo
terrorist that Obama will not free. Outgoing Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has said that the
White House pressured him to free more Gitmo terrorists faster. White House reports suggested that
Obama fired Hagel because he had been moving too slowly on freeing terrorists, making him guilty of
thwarting Obama's plot to close Gitmo. That would make Hagel the first Secretary of Defense
to be fired for failing to undermine national security.
Brotherhood Nazis Call for "Long, Uncompromising Jihad" After Meeting with Obama State Department.
It couldn't be more obvious to me that Obama and his Administration are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.
This past week, they held a confab at the State Department concerning their ongoing efforts to oppose the current
government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi,
an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013. And that just [angered Obama] to no end. Not hard to tell
where his allegiances lie and they certainly aren't with Israel.
Dept Won't Call Taliban Murder of American Contractors 'Terrorism'. In the latest
round of verbal gymnastics over the Taliban, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki refused to
categorize the murder of American civilians at Kabul International Airport an act of "terrorism."
The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack on Friday [1/30/2015], which killed three civilian
contractors working for the U.S. government and wounded one other. The gunman was reportedly a
member of Afghan security forces who turned his weapon on his colleagues before being killed.
Obama Needs to Pretend the Taliban Aren't Terrorists. No doubt because of my
background investigating, prosecuting, and studying terrorism, the cynical claim by White House
spokesmen that the Taliban is not a terrorist organization has annoyed me even more than the Obama
administration's nonstop lying usually does.
Obama Era Has Been Very, Very Good for Iran. When trying to make sense of Barack
Obama's foreign policy, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that a great deal of it has been
meant to reward, placate, or at least avoid angering Iran. With the world in flames after six
years of Obama, there are two things he wants to fish out of the smoldering wreckage and hold up as
"legacy" triumphs: a nuclear deal with Iran and a Palestinian stat
has agreed to 80 percent of Iran's demands in nuclear talks, Israeli officials tell Ch. 10.
According to unnamed officials, Washington "has given the Iranians 80 percent of what they want"
out of the negotiations, Channel 10 is reporting. Jerusalem officials appear alarmed at
the prospect that the United States will soon strike a deal with the Iranian regime that will leave it
with a "breakout point" of months before it can gallop toward the bomb.
Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders. The
Muslim Brotherhood called for "a long, uncompromising jihad" in Egypt just days after a delegation of the
Islamist group's key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement
released this week. Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted
at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to "prepare"
for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday [1/27/2015].
Dept: Muslim Brotherhood US Trip 'Organized and Funded' by Georgetown University. An
official U.S. State Department transcript revealed that Georgetown University had "organized and
funded" a recent trip for members of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to the United States.
While in the United States, the Brotherhood operatives met with top State Department officials in
the Obama administration.
and Delusion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the Middle East, we aren't winning
against the Islamic State terrorist group, as the president claimed. We may have killed many
thousands of its fighters and much of its leadership, but new groups inspired by the movement are
mushrooming daily in West and North Africa, the North Caucasus, and likely Afghanistan and Central
Asia as well.
The Lying Sleeps
Tonight. [Scroll down] Iran is convincing the administration to retreat
everywhere by explaining each time that it is really a victory for Obama. In consequence, America's
enemies are finding it childishly simple to manipulate the experts in Washington.
Taliban Tools and Treachery. Washington is awash in conflicting reports this week that
the Pentagon may — or may not — charge Taliban tool Bowe Bergdahl with
desertion. I first reported on Bergdahl's betrayal and abandonment of his post in July 2009.
A military source tells me that the Obama administration has "slow rolled" the investigation and
prosecution — while withholding vital intelligence gathered from Bergdahl's debriefing
last summer. As the Obama administration dithers on the desertion charges, at least one of the
five Taliban terrorists the president exchanged for Bergdahl has reportedly returned to jihad.
The news comes this week as the White House adamantly refuses to call the Taliban a terrorist group.
Squirms to Dodge the Truth. Iran is on the verge of nuclear weapons and Intercontinental
Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs). Obama is pretending it aint' so, so he can sign his totally phony "peace
agreement" with the mullahs. But Israel's Netanyahu won't sign on to a treaty that will give the
genocidal cult of Iran all the power in the world. That is why Obama hates Netanyahu, and wants to
destroy him. Obama is therefore making exactly the same move made by the appeasers of Hitler and
Stalin in Europe. He is gambling on a losing game of appeasement, but nobody, certainly not the
Arabs, believes a word.
the White House's defense of the Taliban. [T]he Obama administration today [1/28/2015] claimed that the Taliban is
an "armed insurrection" — you know, kind of like George Washington's Continental Army — not a
terrorist group. It is therefore materially different, spokesperson Eric Schultz argued, from ISIS. Thus,
it is okay for the U.S. to swap prisoners with the Taliban (see Bergdahl, Bowe), but not okay to make concessions to
ISIS in exchange for prisoners.
White House: Taliban
are not terrorists. I suppose that if Daniel Patrick Moynihan was right and we can
define deviancy down, there is really no good reason why terrorism can't be defined down, too.
Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department. The State Department hosted a
delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts
to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power
following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013. One member of the
delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which
he held up the Islamic group's notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.
That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council
and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.
HE Stands With THEM. "Islamic
Terrorism" is a euphemism this Administration will not use even ordering the military to delete such
references in manuals. We may not identify our enemy but they clearly identify us when chanting
"Death to America". Strangely, the Obama Administration prefers phrases like "overseas
contingencies" and "workplace violence" to protect what must be the brass unblemished image
of Islam in the President's mind.
bow to Mecca. The aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre has confirmed something
widely suspected: this country's elites have no interest in defeating terrorism. [...] At the end of
the same week, five Yemeni terrorists — associated with the Al Qaeda offshoot that sponsored the
CH murders — were freed from Guantanamo, evidently on Obama's orders. Not only does this
defy widely-discussed findings that from 10 to 20% of all released detainees return to terrorism, it also
gives the back of the hand to the French and the victims. With this action, the administration's
long-suspected reluctance to engage with terrorism has been formalized.

pipeline. It's bad enough that President Obama doesn't have time to get to Paris for a
global protest against terrorism after the Charlie Hebdo attack but can meet and greet the San Antonio
Spurs. But then he privately slams an invitation by Congress to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu, our only true ally in a terror-stricken Middle East, with whom he has no time to speak, while
he travels to Saudi Arabia to meet with new Saudi King Salman and extend our condolences on the death of
King Abdullah. And the way to Riyadh, Obama gives the Saudis a gift in the form of the proposed
wilderness designation of three energy-rich areas of Alaska: 1.52 million acres of the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge's coastal plain, 5.85 million acres of the Brooks mountain range
and 4.92 million acres of the Porcupine Plateau.
Qaeda agent floated in swap for US prisoners? Over the last several decades, there has
been a long tradition of U.S. foreign policy officials making clear to our friends and enemies that
we do not negotiate with terrorists. The customary belief from national security experts is that
negotiating with the bad guys in any way will encourage more bad guys and more bad behavior. [...]
The Obama administration, however, while periodically claiming it doesn't negotiate with terrorists,
has done it.
Sponsors Essay Contest to Honor Late Saudi King. Obama administration officials have
been effusive in their praise for late Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul-Aziz who died last week at the
age of 90. Now comes word that chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin E. Dempsey is
establishing a "research and essay competition" at the US military's National Defense University to
honor the long-time U.S. ally.
silence on radical Islam puts all of us in danger. Last night [1/20/2015] during the State of the Union
address, President Obama refused to acknowledge that Islamic extremism is even a thing. Instead, he said the
greatest threat facing America is climate change. Fox News' Todd Starnes sounded off Wednesday in his "American
Dispatch" saying, "Okay, Mr. President. Let's talk about climate change for a moment. What do you think is
going to happen to the ozone when Al Qaeda explodes giant nuclear bombs in American cities? Good luck growing those
radioactive butter beans. The fact is, President Obama is in denial — and he's putting the lives of our
families in jeopardy." [Video clip]
We've achieved victory in Europe. NATO: The fighting's never been worse. Let's
review what is probably going to be remembered as Barack Obama's most tone-deaf and imprudent statement
amid an ocean of similarly ill-considered assertions in Tuesday's State of the Union. Not merely
the president but everyone who wrote and vetted the 2015 State of the Union address thought it was a great
idea to take a victory lap over the White House's approach to the crisis in Europe precipitated by
Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Jihad by Civilian.
Jihad has rapidly taken a new and ominous shape. In the past, bombs were exploded —
either human homicide bombs or car/truck bombs. Rockets were launched. Unbelievably, planes were
once flown into major Western targets. Now, President Obama empowers the radical Islamic world further
by refusing to join the words "terrorism" and "Islam" and by insisting that Islam is a religion of "peace."
Obama continues to empower Iran to become a nuclear power and, most fatefully, empowers the recruitment efforts
of The Islamic State. He does so each time he refuses to say that the Free World or the Judeo-Christian
West is at war with Islamic barbarianism or with radical political Islam.
Abdullah "Could not Stand President Obama". Uh oh. Somebody got the wrong idea about a
friendship they were having. That would be President Obama, who said, as part of an obsequious
statement lamenting the passing of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, "As our countries worked together to
confront many challenges, I always valued King Abdullah's perspective and appreciated our genuine
and warm friendship." According to Richard Engel of NBC News, Abdullah's feelings were not
warm, and if they seemed that way to Obama, they were not genuine.
Warthog ISIS-Killer Axed by Uber-Competent Commander-In-Chief. The venerable A-10
Warthog, designed to stop Soviet tanks, and the perfect weapon to "degrade and destroy" the Islamic
State, as President Obama promised, faces a budgetary chopping block. [...] Dubbed the "Warthog"
because of its decidedly un-sleek profile, the A-10 has been found to be useful in another capacity
in Iraq — attacking IS forces that don't want to be on the business end of the Warthog's
30 mm cannon as it flies low and slow over the battlefield. As Iraqi News reported last week
after an A-10 sortie against IS forces near Mosul: "The aircraft sparked panic in the ranks of
ISIS and bombing its elements in spaces close to the ground."

lives in ignorance of Islamic threat. President Obama has a happy and untroubled life
on Fantasy Island, where he lives in splendid isolation from the world where the rest of us live.
[...] When an Islamic radical shoots up an Army base, dispensing wholesale death in the name of
Allah, the president sees only "workplace violence." Trouble in Syria? He'll draw a
red line around that. Nuclear weapons in Iran? He's on that, too.
The Editor says...
Mr. Obama is either thoroughly incompetent, or
he is a Muslim. Take your pick.
Senator Slams Obama's Pro-Iranian Propaganda. "I have to be honest with you, the more
I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come
straight out of Tehran. And it feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization when they
are the ones with original sin," [Sen. Robert] Menendez said during a Congressional hearing.
your Muslim Privilege. Barack Obama has led the way in granting and promoting Muslim
privilege. Others have followed. It is high time it stops. [...] Islam is a supremacist religious
creed that denigrates all other religions. Now others seem to agree, or are certainly acting in ways
that show sympathy for that point of view. It starts at the top. Barack Obama has used the powers
of his office to protect and promote Islam. Examples abound: [...]
to Award Iran $11.9 Billion Through End of Nuke Talks. The Obama administration on
Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion
to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided
by the State Department. Today's $490 million release, the third such payment of this amount since
Dec. 10, was agreed to by the Obama administration under the parameters of another extension in
negotiations over Tehran's contested nuclear program that was inked in November.
fantasy for tweens. [Scroll down] And as for "turning the page," what about American
involvement in Iraq? The centerpiece of his State of the Union last year was extensive back-patting
about pulling all our forces out of Iraq. And last night? He called on Congress to give him a
new authorization for the war against the Islamic State — a war that is being fought in... Iraq.
not Islam!' they say — but it is. How can you draw on the lessons if you're confused
and cannot define what you're fighting? And don't look for clarity and guidance from the White House.
President Obama has been in denial from day one. Not only was he absent from the Parisian boulevard parade
of world leaders he has been MIA on Islamic terror since he took office. The best he came up with over the
French terrorist attacks was to pledge to stand with his allies against the "scourge" of terrorism. Well
good for him for his vacuous words. What scourge would that be, Mr. President?
Releases Convicted terrorist al-Marri. Long War Journal reports that the Obama
administration has released Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri from a U.S. prison — not from
Gitmo, but from a civilian jail after a federal terrorism conviction. Al-Marri is an
al-Qaeda operative who was planted as a "sleeper" in the United States by Khalid Sheikh Mohamed to
await instructions on carrying out a second wave of attacks after the 9/11 atrocities —
against water reservoirs, the New York Stock Exchange, U.S. military academies, and other targets.
Missing the answer to terror
attacks: Guns. Over four million people including 50 world leaders showed up in Paris
to rally against the murders and for free speech yet the main gist of subsequent commentary was to
criticize the absence of President Obama. Given his abhorrence of the word jihad, I never
expected him to participate in any event that was critical of Islam.
Dem: Obama Admin Sounds Like Getting Talking Points 'Straight Out Of Tehran'. Menendez
directed his comments to Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken. "They get to cheat in a series
of ways and we get to worry about their perceptions" about sanctions, Menendez said going on to read
a quote from Blinkin indicating that is an administration concern. In his State of the Union
address Tuesday evening, Obama said he would veto any new sanctions on Iran.
Solution: Greater Islamic Integration. He [Obama] said, "Our biggest advantage is that
our Muslim populations, they feel themselves to be Americans. There is this incredible process of
immigration and assimilation that is part of our tradition," he said. "There are parts of Europe in
which that is not the case and that's probably the greatest danger that Europe faces." Besides
the fact that it sounds annoyingly arrogant, that is patently a false statement. America has
Islamic encampments right now that number just over 100 locations.
Obama Can't Say 'Radical Islam'. Following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris this
month, White House spokesman Josh Earnest briefly became an Islamic theologian. At issue was why
U.S. President Barack Obama's administration, unlike the leadership of France, wouldn't describe the
murderers as adherents to "radical Islam." [...] It's easy to see the absurdity in saying that men
who shout "Allahu Akhbar" before they murder Jews, cartoonists and French policeman are not radical
Muslims. But Earnest was not freelancing, he was articulating a longstanding U.S. policy, not only
for Obama but also his predecessor, George W. Bush. Both administrations have said repeatedly
since Sept. 11, 2001, that radical Islam is not Islamic. There is a reason for this: The
long war against radical Islamic terrorists requires at least the tacit support of many radical Muslims.
Rep Gabbard: Obama Admin 'Refuses to Recognize Who Our Enemy Is'. Representative and
Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) argued that the Obama administration "refuses to recognize who
our enemy is" on Friday's [1/16/2015] "Situation Room" on CNN. "It sickens me, Wolf, like so many other
people who I served with and service members, who served both in Iraq and in other places, unfortunately we
lost friends there who paid that ultimate price, and what is so frustrating now as we look at the situation
there, our administration refuses to recognize who our enemy is. And unless and until that happens,
then it's impossible to come up with a strategy to defeat that enemy.["]
Rep.: 'Frustrating' WH 'Refuses to Recognize' Radical Islam as Threat. One common
refrain this week among conservatives is that President Obama and the White House have a very
steadfast resistance to referring to terrorists like the ones in Paris as "Islamic extremists" or
"Islamic radicals." Josh Earnest argued it's a matter of "accuracy," but the administration hasn't
provided much of an explanation beyond that. And now, Democratic Congresswoman and Army veteran
Tulsi Gabbard is joining in on that criticism, telling Wolf Blitzer on CNN today, "It's frustrating
how, as we look at the situation there, our administration refuses to recognize who our enemy is."
Doesn't Get Islamic Terrorism. When 44 world leaders joined 1.6 million Parisians to
condemn Islamist terror last Sunday, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were
watching football. Secretary of State John Kerry was in India (where it's been unseasonably cold),
to give a speech on global warming. Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris but didn't attend
because he was in "high-level meetings," aides said. With whom? Nearly every prominent French
official was at the rally. [...] It's appalling if the White House didn't grasp the symbolic importance
of U.S. participation, more appalling if the snub were deliberate.
The Editor says...
I think Mr. Obama understands Islam much better than most political commentators believe.
Is Only One Way to Stop Obama from Setting Jihadists Free. You're not going to like
this. Our commander-in-chief is recklessly releasing jihadists from Guantanamo Bay. The
president's Bush-deranged base is buoyed by the all-out effort to fulfill his vow to shut down the
detention camp. But the vast majority of Americans remain opposed, and increasingly alarmed.
The pace of releases has surged since November's midterm elections, with over two-dozen detainees
sprung — aiding the enemy even as the terror threat intensifies. But if you want it
stopped, the president has to be impeached.
that dare not speak its name: British PM warns of global 'Islamist extremist terrorist threat'.
Barack Obama pointedly refused to call ISIS terrorists Muslims today [1/16/2015] as he spoke at a joint press conference
with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Standing just a few feet away, Cameron warned of a global
'Islamist extremist terrorist threat,' condemning the perversion of Islam in the strongest possible terms
three times and using the word 'poisonous' to describe the radicalized ideology five times. Keeping
with his administration's policy to label foreign fighters as 'terrorists,' Obama would not refer to the
religion of ISIS militants during the White House news conference but at one point called them 'fanatics.'
vs. Cameron: British PM takes hard line on 'Islamist' extremists, Obama avoids I-word.
"Poisonous ideology." "Radical, death cult of a narrative." British Prime Minister David Cameron
was unsparing in his condemnation of Islamist terrorists on Friday, as he stood beside President Obama in the
White House. Like French officials last week following the deadly attacks in Paris, the PM bluntly
described the problem as a "very serious Islamist extremist terrorist threat." Obama? The U.S.
president stayed the rhetorical course.
whispers "bang-bang" to terrorists. Iraq, where trainees lack weapons and ammunition, is the site of
America's most robust anti-terrorist activity. Elsewhere, our efforts are even more pathetic.
Conversation Obama Doesn't Want to Have. Could this argument be any dumber? The
Obama administration has forced America and much of the world into a debate no one wanted or needed.
Namely, does Islamic terrorism have anything to do with Islam? [...] White House spokesman Josh Earnest
says, "We have chosen not to use that label [of radical Islam] because it doesn't seem to accurately
describe what happened." What happened was the slaughter last week at the satirical French newspaper
Charlie Hebdo. The sound of the terrorists' gunfire was punctuated by shouts of "Allahu akbar!"
and "We have avenged the prophet Mohammed!"
rush to empty Guantanamo alarms lawmakers. It took a while for Republicans to catch on
to what President Obama is doing with the U.S. terrorist prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But now
that it's clear Obama is rushing to empty the place, Republicans are stepping up efforts to stop him.
Whether they succeed could have a serious impact on national security, as well as on more general GOP
efforts to rein in runaway executive power in the White House. Obama has accelerated Guantanamo
releases and transfers since last November's midterm elections. Other than the five senior Taliban
leaders released in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl last May — a deal Obama made in secret,
ignoring the law that required him to notify Congress — the president released just one other
Guantanamo inmate in 2014 before the elections.
Guantanamo detainees released to Estonia and Oman — leaving 122 in the detention center Obama
pledged to close. The release is the latest in a wave that have alarmed congressional
opponents of closing the detention center.

Gitmo Detainee Opens ISIS Base in Afghanistan. As President Obama frees droves of
terrorists — including five Yemenis this week — from the U.S. military prison
in Guantanamo news reports confirm that a Gitmo alum who once led a Taliban unit has established the
first Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) base in Afghanistan.
five more prisoners freed. Five men from Yemen have been freed from the Guantánamo Bay prison
after more than a dozen years of captivity and sent to Estonia and Oman for resettlement, US officials have said
Wednesday [1/14/2015]. It is the latest in a wave of releases that have alarmed congressional opponents of
closing the detention centre. Four of the men went to Oman and one to Estonia, according to a Pentagon statement.
Islam Psychosis. If President Obama believes that terrorists who identify as Islamic
aren't true Muslims, why does he treat them as if they are? Media are fixated on the Obama
administration's latest ridiculous refusal to admit any link between Islam and terrorism, despite
video of the Paris mass murderers shouting, "We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad!" The point
here is not about Islam per se. It's about the irreconcilability of Obama's words with
Europe should integrate Muslims to curb terrorism. President Obama warned Europeans
"not to simply respond with a hammer" in working against radicalization among its Muslim populations,
and argued that the United States had an advantage on this front because American Muslims are better
integrated into society. "Our Muslim populations, they feel themselves to be Americans.
There is, you know, this incredible process of immigration and assimilation that is part of our
tradition that is probably our greatest strength," Obama said Friday [1/16/2015], as he stood
next to British Prime Minister David Cameron at a news conference.
Military Not Taught Ideology of Islamic Jihad, 'Our Nation Is In Great Peril,' Says CSP. Center for
Security Policy (CSP) official Tommy Waller, who fought against Islamic jihadists "on their turf" in Afghanistan
and elsewhere, said his military training did not include instruction in the ideology of the enemy, a deliberate
omission that puts America in "great peril."
Administration Undermines Muslim Reformers with Excuses for Radical Islam. On Tuesday [1/13/2015],
White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that the Obama administration would not be using the phrase "radical
Islam" to describe the ideology motivating the Charlie Hebdo terrorists. "These are individuals who
carried out an act of terrorism," he tut-tutted, "and they later tried to justify that act of terrorism by invoking
the religion of Islam in their own deviant view of it... we have not chosen to use that label because it doesn't
seem to accurately describe what had happened."
Dept: Iran Allowed to Build New Nuclear Reactors. Iran is permitted to build new
nuclear reactors under the existing conditions of an interim deal with the United States meant to
curb Tehran's nuclear ambitions, a State Department official told the Washington Free Beacon
less than a day after Iran announced the construction of two new nuclear plants. The construction
of these new nuclear plants is not prohibited under existing United Nations restrictions or under
the terms of the current interim nuclear agreement inked in 2013 with the United States, according
to the State Department official.
Obama's father was "born a Muslim," which means Barack H. Obama was, too.
Father Was Born A Muslim'. As President Obama faces harsh criticism for his handling
of the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris, a review of his personal statements about religion presents
a window into his view of the Muslim faith, which he acknowledged his father was born into.
Obama drew fire for not appearing at an anti-terrorism unity march in Paris after the attack on
satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that it
was "not accurate" to call the Hebdo attack an act of "radical Islam."
White House Gives Two Reasons for Avoiding the Term 'Radical Islam'. Why is the Obama
White House bending over backwards to avoid talking about "radical Islam," using the term "violent
extremism" instead? "I think the reason is two-fold," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told a
reporter who asked that question at Tuesday's [1/13/2015] press briefing. "The first is accuracy.
We want to describe exactly what happened. These are individuals who carried out an act of
terrorism (in Paris), and they later tried to justify that act of terrorism by invoking the religion
of Islam and their own deviant view of it."
House won't rule out nuclear deal with Iran while the Islamic regime holds American citizens captive
without criminal charges. President Obama's chief spokesman refused on Thursday to
rule out the possibility that the U.S. will strike a nuclear deal with Iran while the Islamic
Republic holds several Americans captive — including a Washington Post journalist being
tried by the mullahs' Revolutionary Court without public notice of the charges. The case is the
mirror opposite of Cuba, where the White House announced steps toward normalizing diplomatic relations
on the condition that President Raul Castro release American Alan Gross and a Cuban citizen who had
been a U.S. intelligence asset.
Earnest: Obama Will Try To Stop 'Anti-Islam' Articles. Wait a minute. Obama didn't try
to stop 'journalists' from reporting on the Democrat Senate staffers' (mendacious) CIA 'Torture'
report. In fact, he cheered them on. Even though every responsible grown up in the military and
elsewhere said it could bring about retaliatory terrorist attacks. [...] In fact, it's hard to remember
anytime that Obama objected to any media actions that put our soldiers or Americans in general at risk.
House: Obama Will Fight Media To Stop Anti-Jihad Articles. President Barack Obama has
a moral responsibility to push back on the nation's journalism community when it is planning to
publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation's defense forces,
the White House's press secretary said Jan. 12. [...] The unprecedented reversal of Americans'
civil-military relations, and of the president's duty to protect the First Amendment, was pushed by
Earnest as he tried to excuse the administration's opposition in 2012 to the publication of
anti-jihadi cartoons by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
House violence incentive system. If the Government things exercising the first
Amendment rights guaranteed by our constitution will upset violent fanatics said government will do
what it can to prevent said people from doing so. Apparently Baptists, Catholics, Mormons,
Hindus, Sikhs, Jews and other assorted religious groups have been doing it all wrong. If we would
only ignore what our religions actually say and mimic the actions of the significant minority of
well-funded Muslims who are willing to commit violence to keep people from insulting or blaspheming
our relative religions, our government would lead the charge to make sure we were never insulted in
media, film or on TV again.
Obama Dithers, Iran Builds Nuclear Plant, Missiles in Syria. As the western powers
prepare for the latest round of never-ending talks with Iran over the fate of its nuclear program,
the Tehran regime is reportedly overseeing the construction of a nuclear plant in Syria, as well as
the building of new missile sites. Both moves underscore the contempt that Iran has for UN Security
Council resolutions and for the nuclear talks themselves, and suggest that President Barack Obama's
quest for a deal at any price has only encouraged Iran to behave more aggressively.
is just something creepy about this administration and a certain religion. Years ago, Obama misspoke
about "my Muslim faith", a misspeak which most people don't normally get caught in and on a topic that usually
creates little personal confusion. George Stephanopoulos, quickly corrected him, grabbed the words from
mid air, unrang the bell. But did he? Obama's first major speech was off continent in Cairo,
Egypt. It was, in essence, an apology to the Muslim world. Then there was the out of the ordinary
mandate for our NASA program to reach out to Muslim countries[.] Obama, the self proclaimed student of
history, created the glorifying rhetoric of the Muslim Golden Age.
Obama's problem calling radical Islam radical Islam? The absence of President Obama or a senior U.S.
representative in Paris Sunday at history's largest anti-terrorism march was an instant embarrassment of major
international proportions. [...] Press secretary Earnest declined to use the word "mistake." He refused
to say what Obama was doing during the march, just as the White House refused to reveal what Obama was doing
during the long deadly night of Benghazi. And he refused publicly to name the responsible staffer.
Earnest suggested security was a concern. But Joe Biden wasn't busy. Security was already in Paris
for Atty. Gen. Eric Holder. And the Secret Service says no one ever asked about a Paris trip.
Barrasso: We Will Block Obama From Closing Gitmo. Tuesday [1/13/2015] on Fox News Channel's "On

terrorists from Guantanamo Bay. [Video clip]
House Lies About France Terror to Preserve PC View on Islam. It is common for White
House spokespeople to spin the facts — to find the interpretation that best flatters the
president. It is rare, but not unheard of, for White House spokespeople to lie about facts that are
not yet fully known to the public. It is extraordinary for White House spokespeople to lie about
facts that everyone already knows. Yet that is exactly what Josh Earnest did on Tuesday, when trying
to explain why the Obama administration strains to avoid mentioning radical Islam.
Paris, Why's Obama Still Freeing al-Qaida Terrorists? U.S. intelligence has linked two

with US teach-ins. Talk about bringing a knife to a gun fight: As Islamists lure new
followers to their side by killing, the Obama administration plans to counter them with... teach-ins,
more or less. Days after last week's atrocities in Paris, the White House announced a February
summit to develop strategies to counter the allure of ISIS and the various al Qaeda branches.
Actually, the White House never mentioned these jihadis. Instead, it defined the summit as an effort
to "prevent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting and inspiring individuals
and groups in the United States and abroad from committing acts of violence."
Tries to Co-opt the Charlie moment. [Scroll down] Obama has steadfastly refused
to name the enemy for what it is: Muslim Holy War (jihad), which leads to barbaric mass murder of
children, women and men in Syria, Kenya and Paris. Jihad is run by the two radical wings of Islam,
the Iranian brand led by Khomeinist mullahs, and the Saudi branch led by Wahhabi imams. They both
preach the same 7th century war theology every single Friday in mosques all over the world [...]
Obama's closest political allies, including Jerry Wright, Bill Ayers, and Code Pink have all acted to
whip up anti-American hatred and support for the Muslim Brotherhood against Egypt's peace forces,
including Presidents Mubarak and Sisi. Obama's career-long cover-up for the Jihad War campaign
disqualifies him from leading any effort against the forces of jihad.

tempers criticism of Muhammad cartoons after Paris attack. The Obama administration on Tuesday [1/13/2015]
tempered its views on caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, refusing to criticize a satirical French magazine for
publishing such images less than a week after a deadly attack on its headquarters.
House: Inaccurate to use phrase 'radical Islam' to talk about terrorists. The White House tried to explain
Tuesday [1/13/2015] why it has refused to use the term "radical Islam" in describing the Islamist terrorists responsible
for last week's Paris attacks and other acts of violence across the globe. White House press secretary Josh Earnest
said the administration doesn't want to legitimize those terrorists or the "warped" view of Islam they hold. Also,
Mr. Earnest said, the phrase "radical Islam" simply is not an accurate way to describe the enemies of the U.S., France
and other nations across the globe.
Handcuffs America in War on Terrorism. From the beginning of his term in office, Obama
has evidenced a deep moral confusion, a distorted worldview perhaps based on a bizarre upbringing.
It's not that he doesn't distinguish between good and evil; it's that he often doesn't clearly recognize
which is which. He professes to be a Christian, yet his behavior screams otherwise. Even if
he actually is a Christian, he undeniably has a nostalgic attraction and sympathy for Islam, which, among
other things, obscures his grasp of the enormity of the threat the world faces from Islamists.
House: Obama Will Fight Media To Stop Anti-Jihad Articles. [Scroll down] Obama's willingness to
pressure media outlets, to quit defending First Amendment rights and also to mollify jihadis, reflects Obama's overall
policy of minimizing conflict with militant Islam. Throughout his presidency, Obama has tried to shift the public's
focus away from the jihadi threat toward his domestic priorities. He also repeatedly praised Islam and Muslims,
and criticized criticism of Islam. "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,"
he told a worldwide TV audience during a September 2012 speech at the United Nations.
Is the White House a 'Sleeper
Cell'? [Scroll down] It would certainly explain Obama's not going to France,
which was a decision that hurt the USA, hurt the effort against Islamic terror and hurt the
president's already tarnished reputation into the bargain. There are so many other things that the
existence of a White House "sleeper cell" would explain that I couldn't even begin to count them.
And as you know, a cell doesn't have to be violent to be active.
House to Host Home-Grown Terrorist Summit. President Obama is correctly noting the increasing
danger of home-grown radicals. Of course, the announcement nowhere mentions Islamist radicalism, which
is in fact the threat. I mean, if there's going to be a discussion panel of rooting out potential
terrorists attending Reform Jewish Hebrew day schools, then they're wasting their time. In Europe,
it's not clear how this works, with Muslim states and Sharia law already established within these nations.
In the video [in this article], terrorism expert Steve Emerson says that Europe may be finished. And
no doubt, Sharia law will be coming here, unless the problem has a name.
remarks on Paris shooting 'Shariah-compliant'. Shariah is Islamic law, the moral code
of Islam that encompasses all realms of life, from the personal to the criminal, economic and political.
In addition to Obama's comments Wednesday in the immediate aftermath of the Paris shooting, Brighton
referenced his speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York Sept. 25, 2012, in which
he said, "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
'Our President Should

Take this stupefying comment from French President Francois Hollande after the two hostage crises
ended on Friday [1/9/2015]: "[W]e must demonstrate our determination to fight against anything
that can divide us... Not to be divided means we must not make any confusion concerning these
terrorists and fanatics that have nothing to do with the Muslim religion." Well, yeah, OK, they
had nothing to do with the Muslim religion in the same sense that Adolf Hitler had nothing to do
with the Nazi Party. They acted because of their strong Islamic faith; they shouted Muslim slogans
while carrying out their deadly missions; they were trained by Islamic terror groups in the Mideast;
and they are supported by millions of Muslims worldwide. But yet they had "nothing to do with the
Muslim religion." Well, at least one person agrees with Hollande. In September, President
Obama declared that "ISIL is not Islamic."
Will Hold Summit on 'Countering Violent Extremism' — Not Radical Muslim Terrorism. White
House Press Secretary Josh Earnest announced in a written statement today that President Obama will host a "Summit
on Countering Violent Extremism" — not radical Muslim terrorrism [sic] — on Feb. 18 and that the event will be
held "in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney and Paris." The statement said one "theme" of the
summit would be "religious leader engagement," but made no mention of radical Islamic terrorism. It also made
reference to "foreign terrorist fighter recruitment" generically, but made no specific mention of radical Islamic
terrorist groups recruting fighters in Western nations.

The only difference between the US and France, the UK and the rest of that doomed continent is that they began

Times the Obama Administration Said Its Job Was to Promote Islam. On Thursday, White
House press secretary Josh Earnest announced that the Obama administration would prioritize fighting
Islamophobia in the aftermath of the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo in France. [...] This,
of course, is not the first time the Obama administration has discovered a duty to illuminate the
inherent beauty and wonder of Islam. Over and over again, the Obama administration, in high
culturally imperialist dudgeon, has attempted to explain to the world the true meaning of Islam.
is the Most Violent Religion in the World, But Let's Keep Calling it 'Peaceful' Anyway. And here
we are again. You might recognize this place. We've been here frequently over the past, say,
1,500 years or so. It's the place where the whole world stands in dumbfounded shock after
witnessing unspeakable brutality at the hands of Islamists. Maybe we should stop being so surprised.
[...] Muslims just gunned down 12 people over a cartoon this morning, and what do we immediately hear?
Islam is a religion of peace. A White House spokesman came out within hours of the attack and
spent about 40 seconds condemning the violence before immediately repeating this same slogan. While
another dozen bodies lay dead in the street, we're told that it all happened at the hands of a "peaceful" religion.
waits for Obama's rules for war against Islamic State. Republicans said Thursday [1/8/2015] that
they expect the White House to write a set of rules governing the war on terrorism and share it with Congress
in the near future, kicking off a debate about redefining the war to go after the Islamic State. That
would end weeks of haggling between Congress and President Obama, who has said he is eager for more authority
but has been reluctant to lay out his exact wishes.
Vet Lawmaker: Obama's Foreign Policy Incites Terrorists. Freshman Rep. Ryan Zinke
(R-MT), a former Navy commander and Congress' only SEAL veteran, said Obama's foreign policy fueled
the terrorist attack on the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that
left 12 people dead on Wednesday. "When America doesn't lead — and this administration
is not leading — then it fuels and it gives hope to Islamic fundamentalists," Former Navy Commander
Rep. Zinke told Breitbart News.
The Obama Administration Have a Strategy to Fight Islamic Terrorism? As the terror
attacks in Paris continue to unfold, many are asking how the United States has prepared to prevent
similar attacks from happening on American soil. Does the Obama administration have a clear strategy
about how to fight the war on Islamic terror? The answer seems to be no. "We have no strategy,"
General Jack Keane said during an interview on Fox News Friday morning. "They have not defined the
enemy in terms of radical Islam."
Paris, Will Obama Continue to Close Gitmo? Of all the lies Barack Obama has
told — and they are almost uncountable, in the thirties on Obamacare alone —
by far the most dangerous for you, dear reader, and for almost anyone in the Western world, are the
statements he has made about Islamic terror (when he has even admitted it existed). How many times
has he told us that al-Qaeda was defeated or on the run? Or that ISIS — now in control of
territory the size of Indiana and initiating educational systems for six year olds while turning
scores of women into sex slaves — is the jayvee team?
White House can't admit Paris attacks 'Islamic terrorism'. They shouted in Arabic
"Allahu Akbar" (Allah is Greatest) and "We are avenging the Prophet Mohammed" as they
sprayed their victims with hundreds of bullets from their semi-automatic weapons. Their
"victims" were the top editorial cartoonists of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, who had dared
to practice their right of free speech. Their offense? Publishing cartoons deemed "offensive" by
Muslim leaders around the world. The perpetrators? Islamic terrorists. Yet in the immediate
hours after the murders in Paris, the response from western leaders was scurrilously predictable in their
refusal to describe the attack as an "Islamic terrorist attack."
should stand tall to Islam. [Scroll down] But recognizing that many, indeed no doubt most, Muslims are
peaceful and even respectful of other religions does not require giving Islam a pass for the transgressions
by its followers against decency and order. George W. Bush, standing in the smoking ruins of
Sept. 11, famously called Islam "a religion of peace" before all of the 2,996 bodies were recovered.
Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, lectured her constituents against succumbing to "Islamophobia." But
such exhortations by leaders in the West inevitably lapse into inane apologies for what makes Western
civilization the fount of the freedoms of the modern world.
House couldn't be sure at first if Paris bloodshed was a 'terrorist attack'. White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest
initially responded to the horrific attack in Paris on Wednesday like an automaton. In an appearance on CNN at 8:45 a.m. ET,
Earnest robotically began by condemning this episode of "violence" and touting the efforts of the administration to counter the impression
that Islam is a violent ideology — a staple of all Western counterterror campaigns since September 12, 2001.
"You keep using the word violence," CNN anchor Chris Cuomo interjected. "This is an act of terrorism."
It's So Hard for Obama to Call Terrorism Terrorism. Notwithstanding the
incontrovertible, seemingly undeniable evidence that the terrorist attack against Charlie Hebdo
magazine in Paris was a terrorist attack, the Obama White House initially engaged in its maddening
practice of refusing to state the obvious for fear of offending Muslims. As the Weekly
Standard's Daniel Halper reports, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest insisted on labeling as "an act
of violence" the murder of a dozen people by Allahu-Akbar!-screaming gunmen. When CNN pointed
out that French President Francois Hollande had, without hesitation, described the atrocity as an "act of
terrorism," Earnest spluttered that "if based on this investigation it turns out to be an act of terrorism,
we would condemn that in the strongest possible terms, too" — but he declined to draw that conclusion.
WH Condemned Judgement of 'Deeply Offensive' Charlie Hebdo. On September 19, 2012 at
the White House daily press briefing then press secretary Jay Carney condemned the judgement of
Charlie Hebdo magazine for publishing "deeply offensive," anti-Islamic cartoons. Partial
transcript as follows: [...]
Future Should Belong To Those Who Can Slander The Prophet of Islam. On September 9,
2012, Egyptian demonstrators in Cairo scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy and pulled down the American flag,
threatening the lives of those inside to protest a film they claimed was insulting to the prophet Mohammad.
Reacting to this attack on our sovereignty and the lives of our citizens, the administration acted in the most
un-American way imaginable, sending out this preposterous message: ["]The Embassy of the United States in
Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims —
as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.["]
Still Determined to Close Guantanamo. For those keeping count, Obama has released a
total of 111 prisoners from Guantanamo, including the five he exchanged for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's
release, an American soldier held as a POW in Afghanistan. Obama was widely criticized for the
decision, which was perceived as his negotiating with the enemy. Guantanamo Bay prisoners are
placed there for a reason. [...]
A fire sale at Gitmo?
If it seems like the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has seen a lot of media attention of late,
you're not imagining things. Noah covered the release of five more detainees on Tuesday, but the
accelerated rate of transfers has just begun to gain notice — as well as the timing.
With Barack Obama's authorized transfer of five more Gitmo detainees over the holiday, the total
comes to 22 over the last two months.
is Closing Gitmo, One Terrorist at a Time. President Obama pledged to close the terrorist detainee
facility at Guantanamo Bay, but Congress wouldn't let him move the prisoners to the U.S. So Obama is de facto
closing the facility by releasing the terrorists held there. The population is down to 127, after the administration
released 28 in 2014. The release of the last five was announced on Tuesday; they will be "resettled" in Kazakhstan.
The administration describes these five detainees (three from Yemen and two from Tunisia) as "low risk," but we've
heard that before.
Must Investigate Where the Media Fear to Tread. The failure of the House to investigate the Muslim
Brotherhood lies at the feet of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), who denounced his fellow Republicans when they
sought a probe of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin's controversial foreign Muslim connections. Boehner was
also slow to embrace a special committee to investigate Benghazi. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security
Policy notes that the Muslim Brotherhood's influence is so pervasive within the U.S. government and civil institutions
"that a serious, sustained and rigorous investigation of the phenomenon" is in order.
Releases 5 More Gitmo Detainees With Ties to Al Qaeda. Five men who were held for a
dozen years without charge at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been sent to the
Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan for resettlement, the U.S. government announced. The two men
from Tunisia and three from Yemen had been cleared for release from the prison by a government task
force but could not be sent to their homelands. The U.S. has sent hundreds of prisoners from
Guantanamo to third countries but this is the first time Kazakhstan has accepted any for resettlement.
on Iran Embassy: 'Never Say Never'. President Barack Obama hinted that he might be
prepared to establish a new U.S. embassy in Tehran "if we can get a deal on making sure that Iran
does not have a nuclear weapon," and the deal led to warmer relations with the Iranian regime.
Obama's remarks were published Monday [12/29/2014] in an interview with National Public Radio host
won't rule out embassy in Tehran. President Barack Obama said Monday that Iran might join Cuba as a second
rogue state to enjoy normalized diplomatic relations with the United States under his administration.
wonder how many more Muslims are now working in DHS? The Obama Regime is crawling with
high- and mid-level Muslim personnel, many of them members of the designated (by Egypt, Saudi
Arabia, UAE, & Bahrain) terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood.
In exchange for ... nobody.
Guantanamo Bay Detainees Repatriated To Afghanistan. Four Guantanamo Bay inmates have
been returned to their home country of Afghanistan, the U.S. Department of Defense announced
Saturday — the latest in a flurry of prisoner releases from the controversial detention
facility in recent weeks. The four repatriated to Afghanistan were identified as Shawali Khan,
Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani, and Mohammed Zahir. All the men had been held at the Cuba detention
facility for more than 11 years.
Rev. Franklin Graham:
Are Being Slaughtered' But Obama Called ISIS 'Junior League'. Christians are being
"butchered" in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State and we knew this was coming starting last year,
but President Barack Obama called ISIS "junior league or something JV," said Rev. Franklin Graham,
adding that the president "absolutely" must be more vocal and speak out in defense of Christians
being persecuted in the Middle East. In an interview on The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly
noted to Rev. Graham that "we're now engaged in a war over there" against ISIS and "the president is
taking some action."
'We're Not Going to Target Taliban Simply by Virtue of the Fact That They're Taliban'.
As the U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan ends on Dec. 31, American troops will still conduct
counter-terrorism operations, but only if the terrorists "directly threaten our people or our
allies," Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday [12/16/2014]. "And we've
also said that we're not going to target Taliban simply by virtue of the fact that they're Taliban.
So being a member of the Taliban doesn't — doesn't mean that the United States is going to
prosecute operations against you for that reason alone." Kirby said any member of the Taliban who
"undertakes missions against us or our Afghan partners" will face a military response.
2012: My Administration Is Negotiating with the Taliban. From Bagram Airfield, the
U.S. Air Forces Central Command in Afghanistan, May 2012 President Barack Obama said his
administration was "pursuing a negotiated peace," with the Taliban. [Video clip]
Fails to Blame Taliban for Mass School Murder in Pakistan. President Obama's statement
condemning the mass murder in a Pakistan school fails to blame the perpetrators, the Taliban. Here's
Obama's full statement: [...]
Taliban by name too embarrassing for Obama. The Taliban outdoes even the Islamic State
in its latest atrocity extravaganza. In deploring the attack, the president conveniently omits
mention of the group he led the U.S. in surrender to. [...] The explanation is obvious. This
president withdrew our troops prematurely from Afghanistan, which in 2008 he called "a war that we
have to win," but couldn't because "we lack the resources to finish the job because of our commitment
to Iraq." But President Obama first lost in Iraq, then lost in Afghanistan too, where the Taliban
are now poised to return to power — the very same group that helped al-Qaida attack America
on Sept. 11, 2001, killing 3,000 innocent people.
The Obama Doctrine.
The president has backed Muslim Brotherhood (MB) policy objectives in the Middle East and North Africa every step of the way.
Dept. Has Not Cancelled Passports of Any 'ISIS or Foreign Fighters' Returning to U.S..
The United States must use "all of the tools at our disposal" to deal with the threat posed by
Americans and other Westerners who go to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS, a State Department
official told Congress on Tuesday [12/2/2014]. But so far, that does not include revoking
the passports of U.S. citizens who have traveled to Syria to fight with ISIS.
and release: Two terrorists set free into U.S. by Homeland Security Dept.. Homeland
Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Tuesday that his department had to release two men who
admitted they were part of a terrorist group from Turkey, after a judge ordered them to be let
out — a decision he said he disagreed with. Earlier this year, Mr. Johnson had told
Congress that four men who were caught crossing the southern border and who claimed to be part of a Marxist
terrorist group would be deported. But Tuesday [12/2/2014] he told the Homeland Security Committee that
two of them remain in U.S. custody, and two others were released into the U.S. and then fled to Canada, where
they are seeking asylum.
Admin Wants Hamas Ally Qatar to Remain Chief Broker in Peace Process. The Obama
administration is pressing for the Qatari government to remain a chief broker in the
Israeli-Palestinian peace process despite the country's longstanding financial support for the
terror group Hamas, according to recent correspondence from the State Department to lawmakers on
Capitol Hill. Qatar — which has come under harsh criticism by lawmakers in recent
months due to its longtime financial support for Hamas — has promised the Obama
administration that it will not allow the terror group to benefit from a new $150 million cash
infusion that is meant to go toward reconstruction efforts in the Gaza Strip, according to the letter.
House Shoots Down Petition to Declare Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization. The
White House has officially rejected a 'We the People' petition calling for the U.S. Government to
declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization after more than a year and 200,000
signatures. The petition, which was first posted on July 7, 2013, reached the necessary threshold
for a response — 100,000 signatures — within 30 days. However, the White
House failed to respond until Monday [12/1/2014], when it issued an unequivocal 'no'.
Week in Pictures: Emperor's New Clothes Edition. This week we learned that Hagel is not Hegel:
he does not represent the end of Obama's historical mission to return the U.S. to its isolation of the 1920s and 1930s.
(But nice of Obama to give Iran seven more months to build a Bomb. It must be frustrating to Obama that it is taking so long.)
Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern. When Thomas Jefferson sent the U.S. Navy and Marines to
the shores of Tripoli after the Barbary Pirates, he knew who the enemy was. They were religiously inspired barbarians,
who would kill and take slaves in American merchant ships without a moment's doubt. Between Jefferson and Obama, we have
totally lost the plot. Obama is himself a fantasy-prone person, who has, for some reason, adopted the fantasy world of Muslim
fascism. That is how he can confidently say plainly false things like "Muslims helped to found the United States."
This is not sheer blithering idiocy. It shows how deeply Obama is immersed in cult fantasies.
prepares for more detainee releases from Guantanamo Bay. The Pentagon is preparing to
transfer more detainees from Guantanamo Bay in coming weeks despite continued Republican opposition,
according to defense and congressional officials. The Wall Street Journal reports that, after five
detainees were transferred last week, there will be another round in December, but defense officials
refused to disclose further information on their numbers or nationalities.
the Road: Amnesty For Gitmo Detainees. [I]f you think granting de facto amnesty to
millions of illegal aliens was a reach, wait till you see what he might do about Guantanamo. As is
well known, Obama promised on Day One of his presidency to close Gitmo within a year. But then
reality intruded, plus congressional legislation, when Democrats still controlled both houses,
blocking him from bringing Gitmo detainees to the U.S. I'm guessing Obama remains determined to
close Gitmo, and the one executive action he could take to accomplish this is simply to declare an
amnesty for all of the remaining residents of Gitmo, and releasing them. If he does this in his
last week in office, what could Republicans do? Impeach him?
renames "unlawful combatants" in detainee manual to .... In fact, captured
terrorists went out of style a long time ago, so that's not the actual change. Until
recently — like, say, two weeks ago — the Department of Defense used the term
unlawful combatant as the label for terrorists captured by American military and intelligence
forces as a way to distinguish them from uniformed soldiers of a recognized state authority in a
straight-up fight. Their new manual dispenses with that term, the Federation of American
Scientists noticed today [11/26/2014].
Parallel Universe. You've got to hand it to Obama. He is no slouch when it comes to
redefining reality. He can look at an elephant and proclaim it a donkey without a bat of the
eye. Or in the case of Iran, look at spinning centrifuges and see no threat. Over the weekend he
told George Stephanapolous that the nuclear deal with Iran, which his negotiators extended for another eight
months on Monday without a single concession from Iran, has "definitely stopped Iran's nuclear program from

the Obama Administration Has Already Caved to Iran. The deadline for the Joint Plan of
Action ended it seems without a final agreement between the P5+1 and Iran over the Islamic
Republic's nuclear program. It's not yet clear what happens next. [...] According to Omri Ceren at
the Israel Project, a pro-Israel public affairs organization that focuses on the Middle East, there
are several issues on the table, many of which the Obama administration has already caved on.
Helping Terror Go Nuclear. Last Tuesday's terror attack on a Jerusalem synagogue
killed five people: four rabbis (including three born in the USA) and a Druze police officer. Two
Palestinians entered during morning prayers and attacked worshipers with knives, meat cleavers, and a
handgun. Congress showed moral clarity when blaming the horrors on Hamas and Palestinian
Authority incitement, but Obama's statements were perfunctorily "balanced." Obama warned of a
"spiral" of violence — an obtuse refrain of those suggesting moral equivalency between
terrorism and the fight against it.
Obama's Biggest Failure Fails Again. Among the many lies and failures of Barack Obama,
ultimately the most dangerous, the most lethal for humanity, is his meretricious and pathetic
pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran. In negotiation, Obama and his minions have been treating the
mullahs as if they were the leaders of Denmark, even to the point of sending fawning multiple mailings
to Ayatollah Khamenei, as absurd an approach as it is asinine.
Many Lies Have Democrats Told To Sabotage The War on Terror? Start with Obama's claim
that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) is not Islamic. Say what? In fact, the so-called
war on terror is clearly a war that Islamic jihadists have declared on us. Yet Obama is
so hostile to this war that even the subterfuge "war on terror" was too much for him and he purged it from official
government statements and replaced it with "Overseas Contingency Operations," which describes nothing. Why
would he do this? To avoid confronting the actual threat from what is obviously the most dynamic movement in
Islam today: the jihadist war to purge the world of infidels and establish a global Islamic state.
The same impulse to deny this threat can be seen in the Obama administration's characterization of domestic acts of
Islamic terror like the recent beheading in Oklahoma and the Fort Hood massacre as "workplace violence."

Five prisoners released Thursday from the U.S. Navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba included hard-core

The move is being seen as part of the Obama administration's effort to shutter the military detention center,
a promise the president made during his 2008 campaign but which he has yet to fulfill.
Obama releases Gitmo detainees, setting
up fight with GOP. President Obama has opened a new front in his hard line against the
incoming Republican Congress by releasing more detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, against
lawmakers' objections. The Pentagon announced Thursday that four al Qaeda fighters from Yemen,
including a senior figure who facilitated travel to Afghanistan for Arab extremists, and a Tunisian
extremist would be transferred to Slovakia and Georgia.
Security head aims to build trust in L.A. Muslim community. Homeland Security
Secretary Jeh Johnson met Thursday with American Muslim leaders who've raised concerns about
government surveillance, initiatives to combat extremism and treatment during airport security
screenings. The meeting at the Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley in Rowland Heights, which was
closed to the media, was intended to "build partnerships and build trust," Johnson said after
gathering with about 60 community leaders. "I've made this a personal priority of mine,"
Appeasers in Bed With Obama: The Truman Project Unmasked. What do Eric Bolling of Fox
News and President Obama's strategy on Iran have in common? Answer: the Truman National Security
Project. A few weeks back in this space ("The Hit Job on Fox News") it was revealed that an arrogant,
huffy letter from veterans demanding an apology from Bolling was in fact a setup. Left unrevealed by
the letter's sponsor — the Truman National Security Project — many of the signers in
question were in fact Democratic Party or liberal special interest activists. This is not, but of course,
how the Truman Project presents itself. The impression given by its website is that it is just another
independent-no-alliances-out-there think tank.
This deal keeps getting worse all the time. When dealing with the Soviets and their
nuclear aggression, President Ronald Reagan famously cited an old Russian proverb: "Trust, but
verify." In his current dealings with Iran and its nuclear ambitions, President Obama seems to be
forgetting about that second part. He is asking Americans to trust a negotiating adversary who keeps
trying to remind the world that it remains the same bad actor it was during the 1979 hostage crisis.

Lies: Obama Never Consulted With Pentagon About ISIS Strategy. Not Once.. Between Jan. 1,
2014 and the end of August, there was not one piece of communication or one single meeting between Obama's White
House and the Pentagon concerning a strategy to deal with the threat posed by the Islamic State. Breitbart.com
is reporting that a Freedom of Information request showed not a single document that indicates any sort of
meeting at all concerning ISIS.
No Coordination With Iranians Over ISIS, But We Told Them 'Don't Mess With Us, We're Not Here to
Mess With You'. President Obama said Sunday [11/9/2014] the U.S. was not coordinating
with Iran in the fight against "our common enemy" in Iraq — the Islamic State in Iraq and
Syria (ISIS/ISIL) — but added that the Iranians had been informed, "don't mess with us,
we're not here to mess with you." Obama also denied having offered Iran a deal linking a nuclear
agreement with cooperation against ISIS. He declined to comment on media reports saying he had sent
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei a letter suggesting such linkage.
dumbest move yet on Iran? The news media broke (or were given) the story that
President Obama penned a letter to Iran's Supreme Leader: [...] Writing one letter , let alone four,

Obama seemed to be suggesting just the sort of alliance critics have suspected was his objective all
along and which will certainly terrify Israel and our Sunni allies.
Obama 'Diminishing Himself and America' with Letter to Iran. 2012 Republican
presidential nominee Mitt Romney called President Obama's secret letter to Iran's supreme leader "an
enormous error" that legitimizes the Iranian regime and weakens America's hand. Romney said
Obama's weak foreign policy is one of the reasons why nations like Russia and China are not worried

secret letter to Iran. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei received a secret letter from an
unlikely person last month: President Obama. In the midst of airstrikes against the Islamic State
of Iraq and Syria, Obama reportedly sent Iran's Supreme Leader a letter in the middle of October, expressing
the importance of cooperation in fighting the militants, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Keywords: collaboration, cahoots, Muslim sympathizer.
to the Ayatollah: Obama's 'Keys to Paradise'. I admit I didn't much care for Barack
Obama before the revelation that he had secretly written Khamenei to induce the Iranian supreme
leader to sign a nuclear deal in return for U.S. help battling ISIS. Now I despise our president.
He is contemptible. Ayatollah Khamenei is a man who has been leading the massive chants of "Death
to Israel" (and the Jews) literally every day since 1979. Only a true anti-Semite could attempt to
make a secret deal with such a person.
WH Official Plans to Usurp Congressional Authority for Iran Deal. Ben Rhodes,
President Obama's deputy National Security adviser, revealed in recently released audio tapes that
the White House intends to usurp the authority of Congress to strike a long-term nuclear deal with
the Islamic Republic of Iran. Rhodes' remarks were given to a group of White House officials last
January, who were joined by members of left-wing interest groups, according to information obtained
by The Washington Free Beacon.
Day looking like a referendum on competence. Obama got a ratings bump when he finally
bestirred himself to order airstrikes and vowed to "degrade and ultimately destroy" the Islamic
State. Yet almost two months later, there is a realization that the disorganized, halfhearted, ad
hoc U.S. reaction has made little difference. The vaunted 60-country coalition is nowhere to be
seen. The barbarians are even closer to the gate.
Make-It-Up World. Do bothersome facts matter anymore? Not really. [...] The Islamic
State is at times dubbed jayvee, a manageable problem, and a dangerous enemy — or
anything the administration wishes it to be, depending on the political climate of any given week.
ISIS is Islam.
The other day, President Obama claimed that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was not
Islamic, a little like claiming that the Vatican has nothing to do with Catholicism. Put aside for a
moment the illogic of using the phrase "Islamic State" and then denying the adjective in the next breath.
If ISIS is not Islamic then the Crusades and the Reformation were not Christian. If ISIS is not Islamic
then the French had nothing to do with the Great Terror. If ISIS is not Islamic then Russians had nothing
to do with totalitarian Communism. If ISIS is not Islamic then Germans had nothing to do with National
Socialism or the Holocaust. If ISIS is not Islamic then behavior has nothing to do with beliefs!
Obama's half-hearted fight against the Islamic State. An unlikely consensus is
emerging across the ideological spectrum about the war against the Islamic State: President Obama's
strategy to "degrade and eventually destroy" the terrorist entity is unworkable. It's not just that,
as some administration officials say, more time is needed to accomplish complex tasks such as training Iraqi
and Syrian forces. It's that the military means the president has authorized cannot accomplish his announced aims.
Obama, Silent. President Obama says he's "shaken" by this week's violent attacks on
three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian prime minister
Stephen Harper to offer support and "solidarity." He vowed to "remain vigilant." Too bad Obama
didn't show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim
terrorists on our soil. And I'm not just talking about the "workplace violence" of jihadist
Nidal Hasan, whose Koran-inspired Fort Hood rampage took the lives of 13 American servicemen and
servicewomen and one unborn baby.
America. Clearly, trust in our government institutions has been eroded. Furthermore,
the Obama administration's embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood, with its penetration of essentially
all our government agencies, including the Department of Defense, has had an adverse impact on our
policies, particularly with regard to the Middle East and the global war on terrorism. As we have
seen, the administration switched sides in that war in Libya by financing, training and arming Islamic
jihadist militias who were under the political control of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was these
same militias that carried out the terrorist attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

defense ministers at Andrews Air Force Base this week. Afterward, he said the 21 member states agreed that they're going to

nobody is sending combat forces to defeat ISIS. Some are helping the U.S. bombing campaign. Some are offering humanitarian
assistance. But none are willing to stand up against ISIS, except the Kurdish Peshmerga, who were not even invited to the

have turned the Arab Spring into a bloody regional war, is a "largely secular" organization in Egypt? Would
the administration continue to define as "workplace violence" the slaughter of more than a dozen soldiers at Fort
Hood, Texas, in 2009 by a militant Muslim yelling "Allahu akbar"? How about the Army's top general (George Casey)
observing, "as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse."
The Editor says...
The Muslims have been extremely lucky since Obama has been in the White House. Every coin toss falls their way.
They always enjoy the benefit of the doubt, even when there is no doubt. Every branch of the federal government favors
the Muslims — as if the President himself were Muslim.
Uses Arab Name 'Daesh' to Refer to Islamic State. Following the lead of Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius,
Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday began using the Arabic acronym "Daesh" at times when referring to the Islamic State
(ISIL or ISIS). Kerry was in Egypt for a meeting with Egyptian foreign minister Shoukry, and spoke extensively
about the terrorist group in remarks following the meeting. The new terminology appears to be an attempt to
bolster the secretary's contention that there is "nothing whatsoever about ISIL that is related to Islam."
to ISIL: How Anti-Semitic Is the State Department? Weeks into the bombing of ISIL, we
know next to nothing. The reportage is vague at best. Some, like the left-wing UK Independent, say
Obama's strategy has been a fiasco. Who knows? Unlike Hamas, which has always exploited human
shields to the hilt for propaganda purposes, ISIL prefers to keep reporters out (or slice their heads off) and
employ social media for publicity and recruitment purposes. But still the bombs fall and innocents and
not-so-innocents die or get maimed for life.
Department Endorses Handbook Calling Jihad 'Noble'. The U.S. State Department endorsed
on Wednesday a controversial anti-terror handbook published by Canada's Muslim community that refers
to jihad as "noble" and urges law enforcement to avoid using terms such as "Islamic extremism."
The handbook, published earlier this month by two Canadian Muslim community organizations, was so
controversial that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) flatly rejected the manual and ordered
its officers not to use it. Yet the State Department's official anti-terrorism Twitter feed,
called Think Again Turn Away, appeared to endorse the controversial handbook on Twitter and linked
to a positive article about it.
Obama's actions suggest he's not serious about destroying ISIS. Charles Krauthammer
said Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" it is not yet clear whether President Obama is
serious about confronting the threat from the Islamic State terrorists or if he just wants to
"appear" to be doing something, but "everything he's doing now indicates it's the latter."
Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and a Fox News contributor, said it's possible that Obama is
serious about completely destroying the militant group, but he is not optimistic.
the War of Ideas. The Obama administration is failing to wage ideological war against
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) terrorists over fears that attacking its
religious philosophy will violate the constitutional divide between church and state, according to
an in-depth inquiry by the Washington Free Beacon. Instead, the task of countering what
President Obama called the "warped ideology" of ISIL is being farmed out to foreign states and
Muslim communities that often share some of the same goals as the groups the administration calls
violent extremists. This approach allows the administration to avoid identifying links between
terrorism and Islam.
Director: Americans Fighting for Islamic State 'Entitled to Come Back'. The director
of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, said tonight [10/5/2014] that Americans fighting
for the Islamic State in Syria are "entitled to come back" because they hold American citizenship.
Obama Has Said Quite
Enough. One would think that the beheading of a woman on American soil would warrant
some sort of comment from the President Obama. At the very minimum, he could offer a few kind words.
As of this writing, he has not said word one about it. His silence speaks volumes. After all, the
beheading of Colleen Hufford in Moore, Oklahoma, by a former co-worker at Vaughan Foods who had recently
converted to Islam occurred only weeks after the beheading of two American journalists, James Foley and
Steven Sotloff, in Syria.
House Sends 'Thank You' to Beheader's Oklahoma Mosque Congregation. The beheader's
mosque, the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, was founded by a sibling of a U.S.-designated
Hamas terrorist, and in the past has welcomed an Imam who was a close confidant to al-Qaeda
mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. David L. Myers, who serves as director of the DHS Center for
Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships, was tasked with presenting a personal message from President Barack
Obama. It read, "Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and
how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice."
Muslims receive special praise from White House officials. Oklahoma Muslims marked the
end of the yearly pilgrimage to mecca with communal prayer and celebration called Eid Ul-Adha on Saturday
[10/4/2014]. Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City say it's been a tough month for
Muslims here in Oklahoma after being associated with the beheading at Vaughan foods in Moore.
The Editor says...
It's been a tough month for Muslims in Oklahoma, they say. But at least none of the Oklahoma Muslims
had their heads chopped off. Who's the victim here?
Obama Refuses to support anti-Islamist, Secular Moslems. For reasons unknown, the
Obama Administration had no qualms in removing and even bombing the secular Arab dictators, citing
the human rights of their citizens, but when it comes to the human rights of the citizens living
under the bloodiest Islamist dictators in Iran, this administration has gone out of its way to
ignore the victims and empower the aggressors. President Obama did not support the secular
uprising in Iran but chose to stand by the Islamist clerics and their international terrorist
Revolutionary Guards who are creating havoc across the Middle East, Africa, South America, and even
here in the United States. Hizb'allah is the brainchild of Khomeini. Hamas is another gang of
Islamists that Khamenei supports, leaving the people of Iran hungry. The Revolutionary Guards are
operating in Africa, in every city in Europe, and in South America making deals with the drug cartels.
If we are really determined to eradicate Islamism, we should stop making deals with them and start
supporting the people against the Islamist regimes.
Better Protect Muslims, AG Holder Set To Ban 'Religious Profiling'. If one is looking
for reasons why Washington has become so caustic, divisive and bitter, look no further than retiring
Attorney General Eric Holder. If reports first published by the Los Angeles Times are
correct, the always controversial Holder, aged 63, will soon announce a new and permanent ban on
so-called 'religious profiling' designed to better protect those suspected of jihadist or Islamist
activities from federal surveillance.
Documents Show FBI Kept Channels Open to Al-Aulaqi Despite Terrorist Designation.
Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained 900 pages of newly released internal documents
from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) indicating there may have been a serious rift between
the agency's 9/11 Commission Task Force (Task Force) and the National Commission on Terrorism
(Commission) in tracking the activities of U.S.-born al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Aulaqi. Additionally,
in an October 2003 email from al-Aulaqi to an FBI agent, the terrorist says he is "astonished" and
"amazed" by the media coverage of him and hoped that "US authorities know better."
incompetence in a world spinning out of control. In the past week, the question has
arisen whether the president refused to acknowledge the rise of ISIS over the past year or whether
the intelligence community underestimated the threat. Either the president is right and the
intelligence community has presided over its worst failure since the Iraq war, or he's wrong (or
lying) and simply closed his eyes to a situation he did not wish to see. No matter which is true,
it's a disaster.
Militant Islam Aims to 'Dominate World;' State Dept.: 'No' It Doesn't. In a
hard-hitting speech at the United Nations, the Israeli leader said that entities such as the Islamic
State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL), Hamas, the Iranian regime, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram
share that eventual goal. Jen Psaki was asked at the State Department daily briefing later
whether the administration agreed with Netanyahu's argument that those various groups "are all part
of the same kind of militant Muslim — Islamic attempt to rule the world." "We would
not agree with that characterization, no," she replied.
Obama's Asinine Abdication of Responsibility on Iraq. In case you missed it last
night, President Obama acknowledged (sort of) that mistakes were made [by everyone but himself] in
assessing the threat level that ISIS posed to the stability of Iraq and the entire region. Some low
level employees in a rogue office in Cincinnati have once again conspired to create bad headlines for the
President, but definitely no one should suggest that Obama himself has done anything wrong. The
most galling portion of the interview was when Obama claimed that those who specifically predicted that a
precipitate withdrawal from Iraq would create a power vacuum were somehow wrong.
'Warrior' Won't Let FBI Consider Religion in Terrorism Investigations. The Investigative Project on Terrorism,
run by Steve Emerson, is the top data center on Islamic terrorism in the country. In assessing the threat by ISIS, he
said the FBI has been hampered by not being allowed to consider religion in their investigations. The terrorists are
actively recruiting in Mosques and the FBI is not allowed to monitor them in mosques. Emerson believes there are 300
to 400 ISIS killers in Syria and Iraq with American passports who can come back whenever they want. Why can they
come back whenever they want? This is insane. They're traitors who went to fight with terrorists.
Narcissism [is] a Threat to National Security. We mention President Obama's narcissism
not as an exercise in name-calling but because it continues to be relevant to how he conducts
himself in office, and it's not pretty. [...] If anything remotely positive happens on his watch, he
presumes to take full credit for it — way more than the normal opportunistic politician.
With the killing of Osama bin Laden, for example, Obama boasts as if the raid were his initial idea
and he delivered the kill shot. Most people in his position would play down their role in such an
event and give credit to our special forces personnel who made it happen. But when things are going
poorly, Obama either candy-coats the reality or pretends he's an outsider powerless to do anything
but complain about it. No president has ever been so committed to eschewing accountability.
Obama Has Missed Over Half His Second-Term Daily Intel Briefings. A new Government
Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of
his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the
2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown
of Obama's PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and
41.3% in his second.
will pay a price for blaming intelligence services for ISIS failures. 1. By blaming
the intelligence community for his failure to act on the ISIS threat, he ensured that a series of
damaging leaks will be coming, and they are already starting. [...] 2. Obama has now handed his
political opponents a big issue. He has failed in his duty to protect America. [...] 3. The media,
which had invested so much in his success for so many years, is having a hard time coping with such
a naked demonstration of personal irresponsibility on such grave matters.
autumn leaves, Obama's story changes to match the season. Remember back in the 2012
presidential campaign when Barack Obama said things like: "Al Qaeda is on the run. We have
decimated its core leadership. And Osama bin Laden is dead. But I don't want Americans to
think the struggle against terror is over. It's not, by any means. We have a long struggle
ahead. By 2014, new terrorist groups may spring up and we'll be back fighting in the Middle East."
Neither do we. That's because, while the Democrat incumbent said the first part over and over to imply
he'd lead the nation to victory over Islamic extremists, the second warning part he left out. Not by
accident, of course.
Stop Using the Term "ISIL". Many of you may be confused by the alternate labels used
for the Islamists rampaging through Iraq and Syria. Some call them ISIL, some call them ISIS, and
some call them Islamic State. Right now, they are calling themselves the Islamic State, after
previously using the terms ISIS or ISIL. Now, I don't really care what they want to be called.
[...] But I do care what our president calls them. Because by using the term ISIL, he is
legitimizing their claim to a broader region than they currently occupy.
Was Warned Repeatedly of Consequences of Withdrawal from Iraq. Top government
officials and military brass repeatedly warned of the consequences of sticking to a timetable on
full Iraq War troop withdrawal, but President Obama proceeded with the plan in 2011. U.S.
Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker cautioned against such a move in the years beforehand. "I am
certain that abandoning or drastically curtailing our efforts will bring failure," he said in 2007.
"An Iraq that falls into chaos or civil war will mean massive human suffering, well beyond what has
already occurred within Iraq's borders."
intel disputes Obama claim on Islamic State. U.S. policy leaders, including President
Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than a year by the U.S. intelligence community that the
Islamic State terror group was gaining significant strength in Syria and was on the verge of seizing
territory deep inside Iraq, where the military was struggling to respond.
Marie Harf explains: ISIL Was
Too Fast For Us! With the dissolution of the Obama administration's foreign policy in
the Middle East and elsewhere, President Obama is talking as fast as he can. Obama set some kind of
a land speed record for double-talk in his interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes last night,
highlighted by Obama's passing the buck for his misunderestimation of ISIS to the Director of
National Intelligence et al.
President Obama and Congress Are Not Protecting Us Effectively. If you are not
troubled about how the U.S.A. is being run, you are not paying attention. The threat from Islamic
killers is growing, and our response is disorganized to say the least. But even more dangerous
than that is the fact that our government is caught by surprise time after time after time.
The Obama Doctrine: No matter what happens, it's always somebody else's fault.
Obama: Intel officials underestimated
ISIS. President Obama, during an interview broadcast Sunday [9/28/2014], largely blamed the United States'
intelligence community for giving an incorrect assessment of the capabilities of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Karl Grills Earnest: People Warned of ISIS for Months, Did Obama Not Hear? ABC's
Jonathan Karl put White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the hot spot today about how President
Obama could say the U.S. "underestimated" ISIS when several high-ranking officials warned of the
threat months ago. And what Karl asked is whether this was underestimation on the part of the
intel community or on the part of the president.
with ISIS, Obama Administration 'Underestimates' Threat of Radical Islam Engulfing Libya. On Sixty Minutes [9/28/2014],
President Barack Obama said that his administration had "underestimated" the rise of the Islamic State. Recent history supports a case
that the President and his counselors have underestimated the entire crisis of disorder in the Arab world at least since the 2011 Libya
intervention. Libya's anarchy today is where the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq is headed swiftly.
West: 'Islamist Sympathizer' Obama Blind to Radical Ideology of Jihadists. On Breitbart News Sunday [9/28/2014], former
Rep. Col. Allen West (R-FL) said last week's Oklahoma beheading was a "jihadist attack" and not an act of "workplace violence," and he warned
that President Barack Obama's refusal to fully appreciate the dangers of radical Islam will make Americans less safe at home and abroad.
faces backlash after blaming intel community for missing ISIS. One wouldn't be
surprised if President Obama's Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, woke up Monday
morning checking for tire tracks after his boss effectively threw him under the bus for having
"underestimated" the threat posed by the Islamic State militant group. But Obama's remarks in a
"60 Minutes" interview drew immediate objections from lawmakers and the intelligence community.
Department expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. The Justice
Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators
would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there
is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks.
The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes
no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The
announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several
months because of White House concerns over national security implications.
Obama Defends Islam, Smacks
Israel, American Racism at UN. Taking on issues ranging from Iran to Russia, from
Ukraine to Syria, from global warming to Ebola, Obama pledged to utilize American might in service
to the United Nations, speaking grandly of the beauty and power of the world's least effective and
most morally bankrupt international institution.
US Reportedly Providing Indirect
Military Aid to Hezbollah. Mohammed Afif, the new head of public relations for the Lebanese-based
Iranian-backed terror organization Hezbollah, gave a rare New York Times interview as Lebanese experts reveal his
group is indirectly receiving American intelligence aid in its fight against Islamic State (ISIS). Following
ISIS's temporary conquest of Arsal last month on the Lebanese side of the Syrian border, the US sent new weapons to
the Lebanese army, which coordinates with Hezbollah. Likewise, US intelligence has found its way to Hezbollah
according to Lebanese experts.
Since Obama has been in the White House, the Muslims in America have been very lucky.
U.N. to dump
flood of Muslim refugees on U.S.. Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high
commissioner for refugees has selected 200,000 to 250,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be
resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq. Syria could soon be
added to the mix in the midst of that country's brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been
greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon
be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S.
President Obama has declared his strategy is to "degrade and defeat" ISIS. Yet he's hoping to do so
by relying on a plan that is ludicrously insufficient.
Obama's boots. For the life
of us, we see zero value in broadcasting to our enemies what tactics the United States will and will
not use to defeat them. President Obama says America's security depends on degrading and destroying
ISIS. Instead of laying out exactly how the United States is going to get it done, wouldn't it be
better if they literally didn't know what hit them?
Holder Issues Fatwa.
[Scroll down] Evidently this is part of the Obama administration's smart diplomacy. The president intends to make
good on his claim that America is a Muslim nation. The idea is to distract public attention by combating bloody Islamist
organizations abroad and smooth the path for stealth jihad on the home front.
Obama, This Is the Islamic State. First, on September 11, 2014, Secretary of State
John Kerry spoke of the U.S. mission to defeat ISIL (sic). For Kerry, the mission was not a war.
The word "war" was the wrong terminology and analogy. The U.S. was engaging in a "very significant
counter-terrorism operation." Then, on September 14, the White House chief of staff, Denis
McDonough, informed us, "Just as we have been at war with al-Qaeda, in similar fashion we are at war
with ISIL." What is the right terminology for the U.S. "mission"? President Barack Obama has
been sitting on the fence, and it doesn't make much sense. Without mentioning the word "war," he said
the U.S. was moving ahead with "our strategy to degrade and ultimate destroy this terrorist organization."
Whom does President Obama listen? [Quoting Charles Krauthammer] ["]No, I don't think
Obama can be reached. I think he'll have to come to his own decision. And I think what brought him
to his own decision to do anything at all was the switch in public opinion. It was not a switch in
strategy. I guarantee you that if we hadn't had the televised beheadings, Obama would never have
announced the policy he did.["]
DHS Adviser Let Go Amid Allegations of Cover Up. A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long
engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight
by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual's privileges at DHS. Mohamed Elibiary was until last week a
senior member of DHS' Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). After years of controversy about his status at
DHS, Elibiary announced his final day with the department on Twitter earlier this month and said he would remain close
to the agency. Media outlets have raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his departure, speculating
that his provocative comments about the "inevitable" return of the Muslim "caliphate" may have played a role.
Rout ISIL Everywhere (Except In U.S. Mosques). President Obama has vowed to "hunt down
(Islamic State) terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are" in Iraq and Syria. News
flash: They're also in American mosques. Yet Obama is not going after terrorists in radical
mosques. And he's making it harder for local governments to stop the construction of recruiting and
training centers for the enemy. In fact, as a grand jury investigates another Minneapolis mosque
for radicalizing recruits for ISIL, the Justice Department is suing local officials for blocking a new
extremist mosque in the area.
The Obama Bomb. [Scroll down] The swift rise to power
of so brutal and determined a jihadist entity is clearly on Obama's malign scorecard, the handiwork
of a president who, by his own admission, did not formulate a strategy to deal with the impending
menace until he went on TV to explain it on Wednesday night (White House press secretary Josh
Earnest frantically tried to cover for Obama, saying he really meant Syria); who withdraws troops
from contested regions; who refuses to take responsibility for his mistakes and even attempts to
capitalize on them for propaganda advantages; and who is always brought up short by events he is
unable to take the measure of.
the New York Times Just Provided Proof of Muslim Brotherhood Influence Operations in the United
States? On June 13, 2012, five members of Congress called for an investigation into
Muslim Brotherhood influence operations in the Obama administration. The five members —
Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Rooney (R-FL), and Lynn
Westmoreland (R-GA) — were widely criticized for doing so, even by their own Republican
leadership, including John McCain (R-AZ), John Boehner (R-OH), and Mike Rogers (R-MI). At the
time, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said, "It's not right to question the loyalty of fellow Americans
without any evidence." Well, now we have the evidence.
Closed Doors, Cheney Tells Republicans That Obama Supported Muslim Brotherhood. Dick Cheney spoke to House Republicans on
Tuesday [9/9/2014] about the need for military action in Iraq. With President Obama poised to give a major speech on Wednesday
about military action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Cheney spoke to the assembled Republican congressmen about the situation in the
Middle East at their weekly caucus meeting. And while the GOP has been fiercely divided over foreign policy in recent years,
Cheney didn't wade into that debate, instead opting to pillory Obama in front of an audience giving him "rapt attention."
Obama's Untruth, Inc..
Remember the al-Qaeda-is-on-the-run 2012-election talking point? It was mostly a lie. The administration deliberately released
to sympathetic journalists only those documents from the so-called Osama bin Laden trove that revealed worry and dissension among the
terrorists. Then it nourished essays by pet journalists trumpeting the decline of al-Qaeda. Disturbing memos that confounded
that narrative, as Weekly Standard journalist Steven F. Hayes recently noted, were kept back. "On the run" was dropped
after the 2012 election, when events on the ground made such an assertion absurd.
Proposes Ban On Libyans Attending Flight Schools, Studying Nuclear Science In U.S.. In response to the Obama
administration's recent approval of a rule lifting a ban on Libyan nationals coming to the U.S. to attend flight school, work
in plane maintenance or study nuclear science, House Republicans introduced legislation Monday [9/8/2014] aimed at ensuring the ban remains.
The ban on Libyans participating in these studies on American soil was put in place in 1983 amid terrorists incidents involving Libyans.
In July, citing a "normalized" relations between Libya and the United States, the Obama administration approved a rule to lift the ban.
If the Department of Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson signs the final rule, the ban will be officially lifted.
Egyptian Politician Says Egypt And U.S. Relationship Strained Because President Obama Demands Muslim Brotherhood Be
Supported. Unfortunately such is the state of current affairs. A prominent Egyptian official is
telling his constituency, and the world, the reason Egypt and U.S. relations are so poor is because President Obama
and John Kerry demand the Severe Islamists be included in policy decisions. Egypt categorically rejects the
considerations of radical Islamic extremism, and will not bow to pressure from the United States to be more accommodating
toward the radicals within the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama has No Intention of Stopping ISIS. Obama is
allowing ISIL/ISIS to continue its blood lust of beheadings of Christians and others across the world. He has done nothing to
stop it and, chillingly, has not even mentioned it except for a passing remark or two. Now, this group of Sunni Muslims
(BTW... please remember that Obama's "family" members — save one who is a conservative Christian shunned by the rest of
the family — are all Sunni Muslim Brotherhood) — has beheaded 2 American journalists within the last
2 weeks. After a passing remark containing an almost 'sorry it happened' to the parents of beheaded journalist James
Foley, Obama hurried off to make his tee time. He was later photographed high-fiving one of his golfing buddies and
yucking it up on the links.
Ignore Report That Obama Was Briefed on ISIS Going Back 'at Least a Year'. On Tuesday
night [9/2/2014], the three major broadcast networks omitted from their coverage on the Islamic
group ISIS a report that President Barack Obama has received briefings on the terrorist organization
"for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer." ABC, CBS,
and NBC all led their evening newscasts with multiple segments on the gruesome murder of American
journalist Stephen Sotloff at the hands of ISIS in a propaganda video released on Tuesday afternoon.
the Religious War We are Already In. Radical Islamists or Islamofascists, call them by
any nomenclature, and one still cannot separate them from Islam, and neither can one separate Islam
from the atrocities currently being committed. [...] Where is our President? Praising fictitious
Islamic contributions to Our American Heritage? America cannot tolerate Obama's foreign policy
based on inaction, delays and half-measures, while the fires of global jihad burn.
Big Lie: 'We Have No Strategy'. They DO have a strategy, but they prefer to appear
indecisive. That's because the strategy would likely provoke even greater criticism than the false
confession of endless dithering. The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance
with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the
beginning of the Obama administration.
Islamic State Has Nothing to Do With Islam? Whatever they may disagree about, Western
leaders are in complete agreement about one thing: the new self-styled caliphate, the Islamic State,
has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. It's a comforting, reassuring vision for Western
non-Muslims facing a massive influx of Muslim immigrants and jittery about the prospect of Islamic
terrorism, except for just one problem: it's entirely false. Barack Obama has made it
clear: "ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith
teaches people to massacre innocents."
Obama doesn't get about the Islamic State. [Obama's] refusal to lead is precisely why
the Islamic State has been able to take control of a swath of the Middle East the size of Belgium
and carry out the crimes against humanity we are witnessing today, from burying women and children
alive to crucifixions to the beheading of a U.S. citizen. Even after that horrific act, Obama
continued to play down the threat posed by the Islamic State and United States' responsibility to
stop the militants. At a second news conference after the Foley execution, Obama once again
dismissed the idea that the United States was at war with the Islamic State.
The Editor says...
If one were to connect the plentiful dots, one would reach the conclusion, as I did years ago,
that Obama himself is a Muslim.
The Tentacles Of Qatar:
From ISIS to the White House. Although never known for political stability, the Middle
East today is in the midst of anarchy due to the Arab Spring. From the beginning, the Obama
administration embraced this movement, and the United States remains an important source of support
for transnational, Islamic, revolutionary groups.
Blindness. [Under Obama,] Terrorism is magically transformed into an act of workplace violence (Ft. Hood) or
called man-made disasters. The words "Islam" or "Muslim" are never to be used in the context of violence, since that
would be racist or xenophobic — it is the hate that dare not speak its name. Instead, his fiction-filled Cairo speech
was a paean to the wondrous history of Islam written by Ben Rhodes, a failed short-story writer promoted to Deputy
National Security Deputy Adviser.
#3,521. Right on cue, after the Obama administration went out of their way to say that
Hamas is not like ISIS, a Hamas spokesperson publically distanced Hamas from ISIS, noting they are
very different organizations. [...] Wow. You'd almost think the White House and Hamas were
coordinating their talking points as State Department spokesperson Marie Harf just this week
announced that ISIS and Hamas are very different.
Post-Foley Fraud About Shariah. President Barack Obama found time between golf rounds
Thursday to condemn the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State (also
known as the Islamic State in the Levant or ISIL) and to assure the American people that he was all
about protecting them against similar fates. [...] President Barack Obama found time between golf
rounds Thursday to condemn the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State
(also known as the Islamic State in the Levant or ISIL) and to assure the American people that he
was all about protecting them against similar fates. [...] Mr. Obama also asserted that the Islamic
State's "ideology is bankrupt." Calling that ideology bankrupt at a moment when it is palpably on
the march from North and sub-Saharan Africa to the Far East and Latin America bespeaks a contempt
for the intelligence of the American people.
claims ISIL speaks for no religion, so what does the "I" in "ISIL" stand for? The
Islamic States is just that, Islamic. ISIL has all the trademarks of the past 1300 years of
post-Mohammedan culture — Piracy, theft, slavery, torture, and genocide. But don't tell
that to the president.
the Faith. ISIL is of course an acronym for the Islamic State in the Levant. It
purports to have created or restored an Islamic caliphate in the territory under its control. How do
you edit Islam out of the Islamic State? Like Hezbollah, Hamas, al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad and all
the rest, the Islamic State promotes the imposition of Sharia law in the name of Islam. They all
understand themselves to be Muslims acting on behalf of the faith. Yet Obama makes a special point
of standing up for the good name of Islam, such as it is.
Dept. Defends Arms Sales to Turkey Despite Hamas Ties. The State Department defended
missile sales to Turkey just hours after news emerged that Ankara is hosting and abetting a senior
Hamas operative who planned to violently overthrow the Palestinian government in the West Bank and
wage war on Israel. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf defended the transfer of Advanced
Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) to Turkey just days after she was forced to explain why
the White House had stepped in to block similar weapons shipments to Israel.
National Security Policy
Adrift. How did we get to the rudderless position we are in today? Clearly, a series
of policy mistakes have been made. It should be remembered that it was President Carter's misguided
policies that gave rise to Islamic resurgence by undercutting our key ally, the Shah of Iran by fostering
the return of the Islamic zealot Ayatollah Khomeini with his 7th century mentality. [...] Today, we
have the Obama Administration's embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), which has clearly facilitated the
advance of the Islamic global agenda. President Obama's 4 June 2009 Cairo speech was the catalyst
for the Arab Spring movement which evolved under the political direction of the Muslim Brotherhood.
We all know how that has turned out.
Ignores Congress, Lifts Ban on Libyans Training in U.S. as Pilots, Nuke Scientists.
The ban was implemented in 1983 after a wave of terrorist incidents involving Libyans. The African
nation continues to be a hotbed of terrorism and in fact, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli was recently
evacuated because violence between rival militias has created a deadly environment. Many other
foreign governments have also shut down their embassies in Libya because the violence has spread
throughout the entire country. Nevertheless, President Obama has discounted congressional
opposition to let Libyans train as pilots, airplane mechanics and nuclear scientists in the United
States. Perhaps the commander-in-chief has somehow forgotten that many of the 9/11 hijackers — mostly
Saudi nationals — received their training in American flights schools because our government
allowed it. Have we not learned that it's a really bad idea to help our enemies obtain skills that
could later be used to attack us?
Lifts Ban on Libyans Attending U.S. Flight Schools, Training In Nuke Science. The Obama administration
has lifted longtime restrictions on Libyans attending flight schools in the United States and training here in nuclear
science, according to a final amendment of the ban recently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
Less than two years after the deadly terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) is poised to sign off on an amendment reversing the ban, which was enacted following a wave or
terrorist attacks in 1980s and prevents Libyans from studying these sensitive trades in the United States.
lifts ban on Libyans attending flight school, studying nuclear science here. President
Reagan worried about terrorist hijackers using airplanes as weapons way back in 1983. He banned
Libyans from taking flight lessons or nuclear studies in the United States. Now, believe it or not,
President Obama is lifting that ban because, aides say, post-Gaddafi Libya and its relations with the
United States are "normalized." Seriously? We just abandoned our embassy there last
month. [...] This is the same Libya that brought us Lockerbie. The same Libya Hillary Clinton urged
Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama to attack. Citing possible civilian slaughter in the anti-Gaddafi rebellion
of 2009, Obama obeyed.
We Rally Behind Obama after the Next 9/11? Thirteen years ago this month, President
George W. Bush was vacationing at his Texas ranch when his daily briefing included a memo titled,
"Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S." Al-Qaida struck a month later, and the nation was at
war. No memos are needed today. ISIS is communicating directly to President Obama via the
Internet and social media. "The Islamic Caliphate has been established," the spokesman, Abu Mosa,
said Friday [8/8/2014], vowing to "raise the flag of Allah in the White House."
Things Barack Obama Has Done Wrong: [#41] Radical Islamist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan "described himself
as mujahedeen" and yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he murdered 13 of his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood. The Obama Administration
labeled that as "workplace violence" rather than admitting there was a terrorist attack on his watch. [#42] He
released 5 Taliban terrorists In exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl. [#43] Americans died at Benghazi because
Obama's administration didn't take their repeated requests for additional security seriously.
McCarthy: State Dept. Negotiating With the Taliban. The Taliban is not claiming
responsibility for the murder of American Army Maj. Gen. Harold Greene in Afghanistan, but it is
praising the attack. National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy said the State Department
hasn't designated the Taliban a terrorist organization "because they're negotiating with the Taliban."
Qatar. It needs be stressed that Qatar, which sways democracies, is not remotely
democratic and its leadership is unelected. With 11,000 square kilometers, oil-glutted Qatar is
about half little Israel's size. Its native population numbers some 200,000, but it has more
than 2 million foreign workers. They lack any civil rights and many of them toil under slave-like
conditions. Qatar has become a particular favorite of the Obama administration, which bolsters
Qatari pretensions to parade as an intermediary between Israel and Hamas, regardless of the fact that
Doha unequivocally backs Hamas and foots its bills.
Obama's friendly fire.
How much better if the White House had said nothing, instead of issuing a fuzzy statement Wednesday [7/30/2014]
condemning the shelling of a UN school for Palestinians in Gaza. It matters little that the National Security
Council's spokeswoman, Bernadette Meehan, did not explicitly accuse Israel of the bombing. Or that she went on
to condemn those "hiding weapons in UN facilities." [...] In a grisly bid for world sympathy, Hamas is maximizing
Palestinian civilian casualties by placing weapons in schools and launching rockets from hospitals. This
shouldn't be surprising. The leaders of Hamas are the same people who, instead of using their resources
to build things that would improve the lives of Palestinians — schools, apartments, sewer
systems — built terrorist tunnels aimed at taking Israeli lives.
failed to stop the Islamic State when he had the chance. From Europe to the Middle
East, we have seen how disaster follows U.S. retreat and disengagement from the world. But the one
area where President Obama seemed to be leaning forward was drone strikes. He personally approved
terrorist "kill lists" and has taken out many hundreds of terrorists with drones in Pakistan, Yemen
and East Africa. So why, when Iraqi officials began pleading with him one year ago to strike
Islamic State terrorists with drones, did Obama repeatedly refuse — standing by while
terrorists overran the country?
Thanks Muslims for 'Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation'. A statement put out today
by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. [...] The
word choice here, that anyone built "the very fabric of our nation" would usually sound hackneyed
and overplayed — but, in this particular instance, given that the U.S. didn't even have
its first Muslim-American congressman until 2007, the peculiar word choice has left some scratching
official resigns after questioning the contributions of Muslims to the 'fabric' of America in Facebook
post. A Virginia Republican Party official resigned Wednesday night [8/6/2014] over a post
he made on Facebook questioning Muslims' contributions to the 'fabric' of America. The post was a
critique of President Barack Obama's statement that the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Fitr 'reminds us of the many
achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening
the core of our democracy.' 'It is one thing to be gracious on religous holidays, but this is pure
nonsense,' Bob FitzSimmonds, the unelected Treasurer of the Republican Party of Virginia, said in a comment
accompanying Obama's quote.
Barack Obama wishes Muslims on Eid. US President Barack Obama greeted the Muslim community across the
world on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr stating that the festival celebrates the common values that unite humanity and
reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other. "As Muslims throughout the United States
and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families," Obama
said in statement.
administration knew Islamic State was growing but did little to counter it. Like the
rest of the world, the U.S. government appeared to have been taken aback last month when Mosul,
Iraq's second largest city, fell to an offensive by jihadis of the Islamic State that triggered the
collapse of five Iraqi army divisions and carried the extremists to the threshold of Baghdad.
A review of the record shows, however, that the Obama administration wasn't surprised at all.
'New World Order' Quote Will Creep You Out Even if You're Not a Conspiracy Theorist.
While more and more people are looking around the world and seeing the turmoil that follows on
America receding from the global stage, Obama just sees business as usual — he doesn't
believe he has any hand at all in all these events. He doesn't believe that selling out our allies
on missile defense and the "Russian Reset" encouraged Putin, or that making impotent threats against
Assad emboldened him, or that pulling out of Iraq prematurely brought on the ISIS terrorist resurgence.
He really believes this is all just normal.
Muslim Brotherhood operatives have the president's ear? Do Muslim Brotherhood
operatives "enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy" through their relationship with the Obama
administration? Posters like this one reference the website of the Investigative Project on
Terrorism (IPT) and name six suspects: Arif Alikhan, Mohammed Elibiary, Rashad Hussain, Salam
al-Marayati, Mohamed Magid, and Eboo Patel. The source for the allegations can be traced to an
Egyptian newspaper article that ran late in December 2013 and included little substantiation.
terror. Hamas builds tunnels and rockets to kidnap and kill Jews, has a charter that
calls for the killing of all Jews wherever they live, launches missile attacks against Israelis,
uses UNWRA facilities to hide rockets, spreads anti-Semitism and claims of war crimes against
Israel, has become unpopular in Gaza, and is losing support in Egypt and the Arab world. And now
the US wants to reward and rescue them with a vast influx of money? They will use that time and money
to develop more accurate and deadly missiles, etc. Rewarding murder is what this amounts to.
refused 'repeated requests' since August 2013 for drone strikes against ISIS. Breaking
on Capitol Hill is the news that Iraqi officials began requesting almost a year ago for the US to
carry out drone strikes against ISIS — but the requests were shot down by the White House.
That stunning revelation came during a hearing on the situation in Iraq this morning [7/23/2014].
Ramadan dinner, Obama attributes his success to family and community, not government.
President Obama said Monday [7/14/2014] that the only reason that he has been successful in life is
because of investments made by his family and his community. "[A]ll a young person needs is
knowing that somebody cares about them and believes in them," the president said Monday during an
Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan, the sixth that he has hosted.
at Iftar Dinner. President Obama told guests at the White House's annual Iftar dinner
tonight that "further escalation" in the Middle East "benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and
the Palestinian people." Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he
has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his
comments, which largely honored "the traditions of one of the world's great faiths."
Counterterror Plan Has New Doubters: His Own Generals and Spies. For a White House
looking to announce a new policy to go to zero combat troops in Afghanistan by the time President
Obama leaves office, the agency's classified assessment was exactly what they wanted to hear. But
the assessment ran afoul of military leaders, especially those responsible for Afghanistan, who had
long advocated for leaving a residual force in Afghanistan past 2016, including a strong contingent
of the special operations and intelligence personnel to pursue and press al Qaeda.
Qatar to buy Patriot
missiles in $11 bln deal: US officials. Qatar will buy US Patriot missiles for the first time in a major
arms deal worth $11 billion, officials said Monday [7/14/2014], as Washington awaits a decision by the Gulf state
on a lucrative fighter jet contract.
Muslims support Obama more than any other religious group. Nearly three quarters of
American Muslims like the job President Obama is doing — by far the largest backing of
any religious group, a new survey released Friday [7/11/2014] reveals. The Gallup Poll, conducted from
January through June, found that 72 percent of Muslims approve of Obama's performance, compared to
55 percent of Jews, 44 percent of Catholics and 37 percent of Protesants. Mormons were
least supportive — only 18 percent gave Obama a thumbs up and 78 percent offered a thumbs down.
Muslim to Mormon, Obama divides the nation by religion too. The national survey, based on more than
88,000 aggregated daily tracking interviews in the first half of 2014, finds Muslims by far approve of Obama's job
performance the most, fully 72% approving with only 20% disapproving. The least Obama-approving religious
Americans are Mormons, only 18% of whom approve, while a whopping 78% disapprove.
U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons
Least. Seventy-two percent of U.S. Muslims approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing as president during the first
six months of 2014, higher than any other U.S. religious group Gallup tracks. Mormons were least approving, at 18%. In general,
majorities of those in non-Christian religions — including those who do not affiliate with any religion — approved of
Obama, while less than a majority of those in the three major Christian religious groups did.
The Editor says...
I think there's an obvious explanation.
Brotherhood Org that Met with Obama WH Calls for Islamic War Against Israel. The head
of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group, called
upon fellow Islamists and Arabs to declare holy war against Israel "for the sake of Palestine."
Roost, Obama's Chickens. The American public hardly noticed when Obama recklessly withdrew every
peacekeeper from Iraq. Did he not boast of "ending the Iraq War"? It did not mind when the U.S. posted
dates for withdrawal from Afghanistan. Trashing all the Bush — Cheney anti-terrorism protocols, from
Guantanamo to renditions, did not make much sense, when such policies had worked and, in fact, were of use to
Obama himself. But again, most Americans took no note. Apparently the terrorists did, however, and
they regrouped even as the president declared them "on the run."
the Culture of Death. [One wonders] how Barack Hussein Obama could maintain that
"Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme, Allah is supreme. I witness that there is no
god but Allah" is "one of the prettiest sounds on earth." It is not the "Stars and Stripes" nor
"America the Beautiful" that he cites. It is the call to prayer for a "culture of death," as
affirmed by Pope Francis's secretary, Father Yoannis Lahzi Gaido, an Egyptian Christian Copt who
speaks fluent Arabic. In fact, Obama, the president of the United States, smiles when Bergdahl's
father recites the Arabic prayer intimating the caliphate capture of land. [...] Obama was educated
in a Muslim country; he celebrates his annual iftar dinners by saying how much the Muslim
world has contributed to humanity.
sends best wishes for Muslim holy month. President Barack Obama is sending his best
wishes to Muslims in the U.S. and around the world on the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
behalf of all Americans, Obama hails Ramadan. ["]On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I extend our
best wishes to Muslim communities here in the United States and around the world on the beginning of the blessed month of
Ramadan. A time for self-reflection and devotion through prayer and fasting, Ramadan is also an occasion when Muslims
around the world reaffirm their commitment to helping the less fortunate, including those struggling because of economic
hardship and inequality.["]
finally realizes that Islam is really, really scary. After years of terrorism that
resulted in, among other things, the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers,
Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, murder of Americans in Benghazi, and the brutal hacking
death of off-duty soldier, Lee Rigby in London, the main stream media is finally sounding the alarm
on the religion President Obama claims America "shares common principles of justice and progress,
tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."
'Disappointingly Complacent' on Islamic Extremism says Former Australian PM. [Former
Australian Prime Minister John] Howard's comments were met by nods of approval across the room as
he took aim at Barack Obama's West Point commencement speech of last month. Howard said: "Islamic
fundamentalism is a far greater threat than many people in their culturally equivocal way believe.
"Obama's West Point commencement speech... with the greatest respect to him and the office... I found
it a disappointingly complacent speech when he spoke of Islamic extremism. "In a world where
Pakistan is a failed state and with Iraq... [the West Point speech] was altogether too complacent an analysis".
Kidnappers of American Citizen Naftali Frankel. On Friday, State Department Deputy
Spokesperson Marie Harf said the United States was "very concerned" about the kidnapping of three
Israeli boys, including American citizen Naftali Frankel, 16, by terrorist group Hamas. [...] Harf
maintained that the "Israelis and the Palestinian Authority are working closely together" and that
the United States was "giving this cooperation our full encouragement." [...] There is no such cooperation.
Pirro: I'm Worried — And You should Be Too. Judge Jeanine Pirro let Obama
have it on Saturday night's [6/14/2014] installment of Justice for squandering all of the
hard fought and won gains in Iraq, and endangering American lives in the process. "You know me,"
Pirro said, "most of the time, I'm fearless. I've spent most my life, fighting, investigating,
prosecuting and sentencing the worst of the worst. But tonight, I'm worried." "Our
president has literally replenished the enemy at a time of war," she said.
ignored general's pleas to keep U.S. forces in Iraq. The last American commander in Iraq recommended to the
Obama administration that 23,000 U.S. troops remain to cement the victory, but no deal was ever reached with Baghdad, and
all combat forces went home. That stalemate has come back to haunt the country as al Qaeda-linked extremists, who had
been defeated by 2011, have returned to Iraq in a terrorist campaign to capture huge swaths of territory in northern and
Feckless Foreign Policy Threatens to Set the Entire Middle East on Fire. From Syria
to Iraq to Afghanistan to Pakistan, the jihadist dream of a caliphate stretching from the Atlantic
to the Himalayas is taking shape. It's aided by a feckless foreign policy not seen since Neville
Obama understand Iraq may soon be an Islamist state? Serious times require serious
measures, not Bart Simpson-like evasions. The administration must drop its business-as-usual (and
none-too-"smart" diplomacy) approach to address what are very real and pressing dangers. After six
years, the president needs to start acting like a real commander-in-chief.
Haram Urgency Fades as Questions Raised About What Admin Knew When. As quickly as
Boko Haram caught Washington by hashtag storm, the Nigerian terrorists — and their
schoolgirl captives — have seemingly vanished from the radar of priorities, even as the
al-Qaeda-linked group's jihadi brothers-in-arms run roughshod across Iraq. One senator this
week, though, charged that the administration never wanted the frightening growth of the North
African terrorist organization to receive much attention in the first place.
Criminal Negligence in Iraq. President Barack Obama came to office promising to
"bring a responsible end to the war in Iraq." That should have been easy enough to do, considering
the war was already over. Alas, he seems to have had in mind something quite different than "ending
a war." Perhaps because of his general bias against exertions of American power, Obama seems to
have convinced himself that our continuing military presence in post-war Iraq was the same as
continuing the war. This novel conception of when wars end suggests Obama may yet pull
our forces out of Europe and the Far East in order to "end" World War II.
'All Options' Include Surrender. President Barack Obama tried to fend off criticism
of his Iraq policy, as that country fell into the clutches of a terrorist army this week, by
insisting that he was considering "all the options" for a response. "I don't rule out anything," he
said. Of course he doesn't. The essence of postmodernism — of which this president
is the political fulfillment — are a profound moral relativism, a habitual flexibility, a
hermeneutical hanging-out. Yet what does it mean to consider "all the options"? The president
uses that phrase to suggest that he has not ruled out military force. He said much the same thing
about Iran's nuclear program, for example, and Syria's chemical weapons. But "all the options" could
mean, in the literal sense, that Obama is also considering the opposite: i.e. surrender. And
that, in effect, is what Obama's foreign policy has been for the last six years.
Quits Afghanistan. Bringing Bergdahl home is part of sporadic negotiations with the
Taliban about easing Americans out of the war, and also useful for closing down Guantanamo. Obama
is wagering that the public does not care all that much whether Bergdahl is a deserter. Or whether
the administration has negotiated with terrorists such as the Haqqani network or the Taliban. Or
whether the released Taliban militants will soon return to fight in Afghanistan. Obama is also
betting that Americans are sick of Afghanistan, and don't really care how American soldiers leave
or what they leave behind, as long as they all leave.
of all fears: Obama may have to approve airstrikes in Iraq. For Obama, who campaigned
on and successfully achieved a near complete American withdrawal from Iraq, even over the
objections of policy makers who warned of the potential for that chronically unstable nation to
again erupt in violence, being forced to contemplate revived military action in that country
represents a political Sophie's Choice. Abstain, and risk being haunted by the impression that he
presided over the loss of the Middle East having surrendered the tenuous gains in Iraq and allowed
conflicts in Syria, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia to metastasize. Accept, and the Obama presidency's
raison d'être — a mandate for retrenchment and a renewed reliance on
smart power — collapses.
Weakness Gets Al-Qaida Back In The Game. As Mosul falls to al-Qaida and Iraq slips
into civil war, Americans are left to ponder the foreign policy wreckage of the Obama
administration. Has there ever been an administration this incompetent? It's doubtful. Iraq's
descent into chaos and civil war is the direct result of President Obama's decision to abandon that
country to its worst elements. Americans who think it doesn't matter will soon find out it does,
because a new, dangerous anti-Western terrorist state has been born in the Mideast.
views on Muslim terrorism fly in the face of reality: Report. Despite President Barack Obama and his minions claiming the
strength of the world's radical Islamist network is waning and the threat to the United States minimal, a study released on Wednesday [6/4/2014]
by a well-respected and highly-regarded think-tank contradicts what many call Obama's myopic view of the terrorist threat to the United States,
the American people, and U.S. interests throughout the world, according to Joel Kaplan, a former members of a police special operations team.
The RAND Corporation study suggests that the threat of Islamic terrorism isn't waning at all, but appears to be growing by leaps-and-bounds.
countries have warmed to Obama, poll finds. Arabs living in the Middle East have
warmed to President Obama's policies in recent years, according to a comprehensive survey released
Wednesday by Zogby Research Services. Zogby polled people living in seven Arab countries
including Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the
Wanderers — Obama and Bergdahl. Bergdahl's quest to find the Taliban strikes me as a
good metaphor for President Obama. Like Bergdahl, he has wandered away from familiar
confines — traditional, shared notions of how to conduct American foreign
policy — in search of exotic enemies with whom to talk. Such enemies include not just
the Taliban, but also Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas. Like Bergdahl, Obama ignored
warnings from those to whom he was similarly situated. In Obama's case, candidate Hillary Clinton
found Obama too eager to meet, without preconditions, with enemies the U.S. has shunned.
The Obama Doctrine.
President Obama thought trading a deserter for five top terrorists would be a PR coup. What does this tell us
about our president as a person? At the most basic level, it shows that Obama does not share Americans' visceral
reaction to Bergdahl's betrayal of his fellow soldiers and country. [...] Obama didn't have a normal visceral reaction
to the 9/11 attack in Benghazi, either. Any normal person would have rushed to his post in the Situation Room
to oversee a rescue attempt.
Nazi gives Hitler Salute from Rose Garden. We can now see Obama's
version of the Knockout Game against our allies, always favoring our deadliest self-proclaimed
enemies. Here's the game: First, Obama says nice things about defending our allies, like
endlessly repeating the conscious lie that "Iran will never possess weapons of mass destruction."
Then he stabs our allies in the back, and does a victory lap, applauded by the bloody-handed
mullahs, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Nusra in Syria, the whole gangland world of
theological criminals. Repeat that pattern of "flattery and betrayal" over and over again, and
you have BHO's foreign policy from the beginning.
Submits To Taliban Demands, Allows Praise For Allah. President Barack Obama
apparently traded five jailed jihadis held in Guantanamo for one American soldier, despite federal
law, which requires Congress to be notified before prisoners are transferred. Obama used a Rose
Garden press event to tout the surprise trade — which he won by making critical,
last-minute concessions — while the parents of the freed soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, stood
alongside. At the end of the brief event, the soldier's father, Bob Bergdahl, recited the most
frequent phrase in the Koran — "Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim" — which means "In the name
of Allah, most Gracious, most Compassionate." After Bergdahl finished his statement and his
praise for Allah, Obama hugged him.
phone must be disconnected, and his pen out of ink. It sure would be nice for
President Pen-and-Phone to speak up in a few situations where he actually could make an
immediate difference, without trampling on the Constitution. Maybe that's why he doesn't say
anything. It's no fun unless he can disrupt the separation of powers, make a government agency
bigger, or turn the situation into a slam against his political enemies. I'd also like to see
President Obama use his fabled pen and phone to do something for Meriam Ibrahim, held prisoner by
the barbarians of Sudan and just forced to give birth in chains. I'm not talking about
metaphorical chains, either. She was literally shackled to the floor in a filthy dungeon cell
while her baby daughter was delivered.
Must close Gitmo before I leave office. President Obama said Thursday [5/29/2014] he's still
determined to close the prison for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before the end of
his presidency. Asked if he'll be forced to turn over the problem to his successor, Mr. Obama
told NPR, "Not if I can help it." "I'm going to keep on pushing because I want to make sure that
when I turn the keys over to the next president, that they have the ability, that he or she has the
capacity to make some decisions with a relatively clean slate," Mr. Obama said.
cleric who backed fatwa on 'killing of U.S. soldiers' promoted by State Dept.. The
State Department's Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau promoted on Friday a controversial Muslim scholar
whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S.

controversial organization founded by a Muslim Brotherhood leader "who has called for the death of
Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S.," according to Fox News.
Dept. apologizes for promoting Muslim cleric who backed killing of US soldiers. The
State Department's Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday [5/27/2014] for promoting a
controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa
authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The apology came on the heels of a Friday
Washington Free Beacon report detailing the CT Bureau's promotion of Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the
vice president of a radical Muslim scholars group that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood
leader who has called "for the death of Jews and Americans."
Investigating Alleged DHS Terrorist Lookout Record Deletions. Senator Charles
Grassley (R-IA) is investigating allegations the Department of Homeland Security has deleted
records related to a list of terrorists the agency maintains as part of a "hands off" policy on
some of the individuals on the list. Grassley released emails last week describing the alleged
terrorist "hands off" list at DHS which apparently resulted in the deletion of records of an
individual who was allegedly a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a "close associate" of a
supporter of "Hamas, Hizbollah, and (Palestinian) Islamic Jihad."
Obama Administration Threatened
Nigeria with Sanctions in 2013 for Fighting Boko Haram. Hillary Clinton wasn't the
only Obama administration official who went to bat for Boko Haram over the past few years.
Soon after John Kerry took over as Secretary of State, the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Terence P.
McCulley, accused the Nigerian government of butchery during a confrontation with Boko Haram terrorists
in Baga, a Nigerian town on the shores of Lake Chad, and in May 2013 threatened to withdraw U.S.
military aid from the West African nation.
Alliance with Boko Haram. Obama and Hillary resisted doing anything about Boko Haram
because they believed that its root cause was the oppression of Muslims by the Nigerian government.
Across the bloody years of Boko Haram terror, the State Department matched empty condemnations of
Boko Haram's killing sprees with condemnations of the Nigerian authorities for violating Muslim
rights. Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton haven't championed #BringBackOurGirls because it's a
hashtag in support of the kidnapped girls, but because it undermines the Nigerian government. They
aren't trying to help the kidnapped girls. They're trying to bring down a government that hasn't
gone along with their agenda for appeasing Boko Haram and Nigerian Muslims.
President Obama's aversion to any perceived "war on Islam" has consistently led his administration to
downplay the problem of jihad. Its outrage over the abductions of hundreds of young women in Nigeria
by the jihadist organization Boko Haram hasn't changed that stance. The State Department is still
reluctant to make mention of Boko Haram's Islamic character. Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department
hesitated to label the group even a terrorist organization, despite its long catalogue of terrorist acts.
Can't Say Why It Took Two Years to Label Boko Haram a Terrorist Organization. White House press secretary
Jay Carney could not offer a tangible reason to explain why it took the Obama administration two years to label Boko
Haram a terrorist organization Friday [5/9/2014] on MSNBC. He cited a number of lesser measures the administration
implemented to address the group's heinous acts, but stopped short of stating what kept Boko Haram off the State Department's
terror organization list between 2011 and 2013.
Haram and the Failure of Obama's Counter-Terrorism Strategy. During Hillary Clinton's tenure, the
State Department failed to designate Boko Haram a terrorist organization, in spite of the fact that Boko Haram
had become second only to the Taliban as the deadliest terrorist organization. Clinton will rightly have to bear
blame for that, but the lack of a designation also reflects the much deeper problem of the Obama administration's
overall approach to Islamic extremism. It is an approach that has led to bad policies, not only with regard
to Boko Haram, but also to Iran, the Syrian rebels, Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Benghazi.
Obama State Department's Understanding of Boko Haram Was Even More Delusional than You Thought. A news
article in today's [5/9/2014] New York Times sets out to explore why the United States waited until November 2013
to designate Nigeria's Boko Haram as a "foreign terrorist organization." In light of the group's latest
atrocity — the kidnapping and enslaving of over 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria's Borno state last month — this
is a very good question. The article makes the point that the terrorist designation was made after Hillary
Clinton resigned as secretary of state, and confirms reporting that it came after a two-year debate in which "the
Justice Department, the F.B.I., American intelligence officials and counterterrorism officials in the State
Department" all called for the designation but State ultimately opposed it.
U.S. needs tougher foreign policy than 'hashtags and selfies'. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers
argued Sunday [5/11/2014] that the Obama administration needs to take a tougher approach to foreign policy than tracking
online trends and hashtag diplomacy. The Michigan Republican criticized the administration for not designating Boko
Haram a terrorist organization years ago. The Islamist militant group is responsible for abducting at least
276 schoolgirls from the northeastern Nigerian village of Chibok last month.
State Department resisted labeling Boko Haram as terror group. The kidnapping of nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls by
radical Islamic terror group Boko Haram has drawn international condemnation, including that of former Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton. "Abominable," is how she described the kidnapping, calling it an "act of terrorism" that merits "the fullest response
possible." But the State Department, under Clinton's leadership, repeatedly resisted and blocked efforts to designate Boko
Haram as a terrorist group. Those who pushed for the designation as early as 2011 are now saying the department missed a
major opportunity to track and target the deadly organization as it grew.
Hillary Clinton's State Dept. didn't list Boko Haram as a terrorist group. The US lists Boko Haram as a foreign
terrorist organization. But that designation occurred only last year, under John Kerry's State Department. An
earlier proposal by a congressional committee that the group be placed on the US terror list was studied but ultimately
denied in 2012 by Mrs. Clinton's State Department. The Clinton State Department did add three Boko Haram leaders
to the US list of individual terrorists, including Abubakar Shekau — the leader who issued a video this week in which
he claims the mass kidnapping and vows to "sell in the market" the 276 girls though to still be under his control.
Unsecured Libyan Weapons
Went to Boko Haram. Add another drop of tragedy to the story of America's reluctant, no-boots-on-the-ground operation
in Libya in 2011: Weapons that were never secured after Muammar Gaddafi's ouster made their way to Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist
organization now holding hundreds of Nigerian girls. Last May, Boko Haram staged an attack in the town of Bama, killing
55 innocents and freeing 100 prisoners.
was a Suspected Muslim Brotherhood Spy Copied on the Benghazi 'Smoking Gun' E-mail? [Scroll down] Interestingly,
one of the recipients of the e-mail to Rice was a Mehdi K. Alhassani. According to Shoebat.com, Alhassani
is an alleged Muslim Brotherhood spy. Alhassani is the Special Assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff,
National Security Council Staff, and the Executive Office of the President. Alhassani was president of the
Muslim Student Association which is an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front organization. The question is, how
did Alhassani slip through the cracks to find himself in such a position of influence?
U.S. to Send Egypt
New Apache Attack Helicopters. The United States has decided to lift its hold on the delivery of
10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt imposed last year after the military's ouster of President Mohamed Mursi
and an ensuing crackdown against protesters, the Pentagon said on Tuesday [4/22/2014].
Another $1 Billion to Iran. The United States has released $1 billion in cash assets to Iran
in April alone under the interim nuclear deal aimed at ratcheting back Iran's nuclear program, according to the
White House. The Obama administration unfroze Iranian assets totaling $550 million on April 10
and another $450 million on April 15. The United States has now released $2.55 billion to
Iran since February, when the scheduled cash infusions first began.
Victim Families: Obama Administration Sabotaging Trials. Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed
shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the
Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families
of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members' accused
killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came
to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist's defense lawyers.
McCain: Obama lets 'bad people' fill U.S. void, says Jimmy Carter was better. In some
of his harshest comments about the administration's lackluster foreign policy to date, Sen. John
McCain said that former President Jimmy Carter was tougher with U.S. foes than President Obama has
been, and that America's credibility as world power has crumbled under Obama. McCain, the top
foreign policy expert in Congress, said that U.S. credibility to lead the war against terrorist
states cracked when Obama failed to make good on his threats against Syrian chemical attacks and
when the al Qaeda retook Fallujah where the bloodiest battle in Iraq took place, killing
96 Americans and wounding 600.
Look At What America Is Giving To
Terrorists. Look at what America is giving these terrorists in Syria. This is a BGM-71, one of
the most widely used anti-tank guided missiles. The weapon is used in anti-armor, anti-bunker,
anti-fortification and anti-amphibious landing roles. The TOW is in service with over 45 militaries
and is integrated on over 15,000 ground, vehicle and helicopter platforms worldwide. In other words,
its serious weaponry, and its in the hands of these savages all thanks to politicians like Obama and McCain.
The War on Our Warriors. Karen
and Billy Vaughn gave birth to one of our most elite worriers, Aaron Vaughn. One of the team that took out our most-wanted terrorist,
and 90 days later was shot out of the sky. Why was he shot out of the sky? Because our Commander-in-Chief's rules of
engagement are so heavily influenced by Muslim Brotherhood advisers and sympathizers in the highest level of our government.
'religious freedom' appointee: Shariah Law is superior to American Law. Barack Obama has appointed a woman
named Azizah Yahia Muhammad Toufiq al-Hibri to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. [...]
That's right, he's appointed an extremist Muslim to a commission on religious freedom. Imagine that. This would
be like appointing someone to the board of the American Lung Association who is a three-pack-a-day chain smoker.
The president's pointless
trip to Saudi Arabia. As President Obama prepares to visit Saudi Arabia on Friday, many in the Middle
East are wondering why he is making a trip with no discernible purpose. No one is quite sure what Obama is
supposed to do while in Riyadh. [...] Indeed, some of Obama's policies are signs either of a deliberate strategy to
end American leadership, or of ineptitude. In Egypt he sided with the Muslim Brotherhood, whetting the group's
appetite for domination in the Arab world. Even when the Brotherhood was caught plotting a coup in Abu Dhabi,
Obama looked the other way. Qatar saw Obama's support for the Brotherhood as endorsing its own policy of funding
the organization and giving it exposure through the Al Jazeera TV networks. That, in turn, heightened Saudi
anxiety with fears that Washington might back the Brotherhood in a power grab in the kingdom.
Praises Abbas: 'Somebody Who Has Consistently Renounced Violence'. Hosting Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas in the
Oval Office on Monday [3/17/2014], President Obama described his visitor as "somebody who has consistently renounced violence" — a
view in stark contrast to that held by the Israeli government.
Iran to Receive Another $550 Million Cash
Infusion. Iran is scheduled to receive another $550 million in unfrozen assets from the Obama administration on Friday
[3/7/2014], just days after Tehran unveiled a slew of new weapons and advanced ballistic missiles. Iranian banking authorities on
Wednesday confirmed that another $550 million is now on its way to Tehran under the interim nuclear accord inked last year with
the United States and other Western nations.
Obama's bizarre immigration
rules. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, none of us ever imagined a dozen years later we'd be negotiating
with the Taliban in Afghanistan, supplying aid to al Qaeda-affiliated "rebel" groups in Syria, and releasing from Gitmo some of the
most hardened al Qaeda operatives. Under the Obama administration, that's exactly what we're doing. Now we can add
another bizarre, and potentially dangerous, unilateral decree from the administration: Mr. Obama has ordered a change in
immigration rules making it easier for so-called "minor" terrorists to gain refugee status and asylum in the United States.
Doesn't Threaten Our National Security, Obama Does. [Scroll down] I'll tell you what does concern
me: [...] Muslims in the Obama White House — including Arif Alikhan (Deputy Executive Director for Policy in DHS), Mohamed
Elibiary (Homeland Security Advisory Council), Rashad Hussain (Special Envoy to the deeply anti-Semitic Organization of
the Islamic Conference), Imam Mohamed Magid (Obama's Sharia Law advisor, on loan from the Islamic Society of North America,
with its Brotherhood ties) and Eboo Patel (on the Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships). A
Muslim who takes his religion seriously must put loyalty to Dar al-Islam above allegiance to an infidel state.
Sues to Allow Illinois Muslims to Skip Work Without Being Fired. [A]ccording to the Obama administration, if
you are a Muslim in Illinois who signed a contract to work for a company, but you find that you just don't want to do something
your boss tells you to do, why, you just don't have to do it. Oh, and if you are fired for refusing to do the work you
contracted to do, why, Obama will sue your employer for you. This is what has happened in the Land Of Lincoln with the
US Government vs the Star Transport trucking company.
is preparing to abandon Afghanistan to its fate. Don't be fooled. When President Obama says that America is preparing
for the total withdrawal of all American forces from Afghanistan by the end of this year, what he really means is that he has already
decided on the total withdrawal of all American forces from Afghanistan by the end of this year.
Threatens To Leave Afghanistan To Taliban, Al-Qaida. President Obama's strong-arm tactics with Afghanistan underscore an
uncomfortable fact: He wasn't telling the truth five years ago when he said Afghanistan's war, not Iraq's, was the one we needed
to be fighting.
FBI Documents Raise Additional Questions about
Saudi and al-Aulaqi Connections to 9/11 Attacks. Letting terrorists off the hook is dangerous, but inviting a terrorist to dine at the Pentagon
is downright dangerous and bizarre. But that's exactly what happened when Anwar al-Aulaqi, the American-born terrorist ultimately assassinated by President
Obama, was asked to speak at a Pentagon luncheon. The more we learn about what the government knew about al-Aulaqi, the more curious we become as to why
this man was courted by those entrusted with our national security.
John Kerry Visits
Mega-Mosque, Proclaims that All Religions Essentially are the Same. Who died and made John Kerry an Islamic scholar?
Obama pledges $1B in loan guarantees to
Jordan. President Obama pledged $1 billion in loan guarantees for Jordan, a Middle East ally that is dealing with a flood of Syrian
refugees who have crossed the border. The president made the loan guarantee commitment during a meeting Friday evening [2/14/2014] with Jordan's
King Abdullah II at Sunnylands, the Annenberg estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Obama also extended an aid package for the country for five years.
The Pentagon's Bow to Islamic Extremism.
"Caving to pressure from Muslim groups, the Pentagon has relaxed uniform rules to allow Islamic beards, turbans and hijabs. It's a major win for political
correctness and a big loss for military unit cohesion," said a recent report. This new relaxation of rules for Muslims comes at a time when the FBI is
tracking more than 100 suspected jihadi-infiltrators of the U.S. military. Just last month, Craig Benedict Baxam, a former Army soldier and convert
to Islam, was sentenced to seven years in prison due to his al-Qaeda/jihadi activities.
Muslim Brotherhood Leader Meets Obama in White
House. A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood was recently hosted at the White House for a meeting with President Barack
Obama, prompting an outcry from critics of the global Islamist organization. Anas Altikriti, a top British lobbyist for the Muslim
Brotherhood whose father heads Iraq's Muslim Brotherhood party, recently met with the president and Vice President Joe Biden as part of a
delegation discussing problems in Iraq.
Mulsim Brotherhood in the Oval
Office. The MB ultimately would like to eliminate all the Christians, all the Jews, and all the Buddhists, all the Hindus;
every single infidel on the planet, while establishing a Global Caliphate run by, of course, the Muslim Brotherhood.
admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants with 'limited' terror contact into US. The Obama administration has issued new
exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided "limited material support" to terrorists who are believed to pose
no threat from the U.S. The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal
Register to narrow a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support,
no matter how minor, to terrorists.
Obama may trust Iran but America should
not. President Obama's proposal in Geneva to the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council allowing Iran to enrich
some uranium violates previous U.N. resolutions demanding the Islamic Republic stop "all" uranium enrichment activity. To avoid a violation
of current U.N. resolutions, the permanent members must ask the entire Security Council to vote to weaken and supersede their previous demands.
President Costanza and the
Nuclear Deal with Iran. The president has seemingly determined that the Iranian theocratic regime is trustworthy, and perhaps
a potential ally for us in the Middle East, even though Iran: 1) is technically at war with the U.S.; 2) has a long history
of lying in its diplomacy; 3) continues to be the leading state sponsor of international terrorism; 4) cruelly suppresses the human
rights of its people; 5) backs the vicious Assad regime in Syria; 6) routinely threatens the extermination of our close ally Israel;
and 7) often acts to undermine the stability of other Middle East nations, such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Bahrain.
Back Off Iran Sanctions to Save Obama. Unnamed sources told AFP that Democrats who were signed up for more sanctions
against Iran have now "privately recoiled from a damaging vote against their own president." According to AFP, "several
Democrat Senators who previously backed a bi-partisan sanctions bill stepped back after Obama threatened a veto during his
State of the Union address on Tuesday." With the Democrats changing position, the bill is quickly losing momentum,
and the once-imminent vote on new sanctions is imminent no more.
Report: Obama heading
to Saudi Arabia. President Obama is planning a trip to Saudi Arabia to repair badly frayed ties with one of America's key allies in
the Middle East, The Wall Street Journal reports. Obama will visit the kingdom in March for a meeting with King Abdullah, the Journal
reports, citing Arab officials. The White House declined to comment.
Report: Malik Obama, the
President's Brother, Funds Hamas. On Tuesday we noted that Malik Obama is President Barack Obama's half-brother, but the
two are very close. Malik Obama was best man at the future president's wedding, and has visited the White House during the Obama
years. We also reported that Malik Obama posted a photograph of himself on the Barack H. Obama Foundation website in which
he is wearing a scarf emblazoned with calls for Muslims to destroy Israel. Wearing a scarf is by no means the full extent of
evidence that Malik Obama is anti Israel and supports its destruction. According to anti-terrorism activist Walid Shoebat, Malik
Obama raises money through an Islamic charity organization, and uses that money to support Hamas.
Did D'Souza Hit a Nerve? How does one connect these
(1) Obama backs offshore drilling in Brazil but not the US
(2) The Gulf oil spill is used as an occasion to lecture the US on the evils of our fossil fuel consumption.
(3) Obama backs a 100 million dollar mosque near Ground Zero but turns a blind eye to the
prohibition in many Arab countries against building any new churches.
(4) Supports the release of the Lockerbie bomber but incarcerates the producer of an anti-Mohamed film.
(5) NASA Chief Charles Bolden announced that from now on the primary mission of America's
space agency would be to improve relations with the Muslim world.
Penance? Penance for past colonial exploitation?
Capitulate To Sharia Law. Caving to pressure from Muslim groups, the Pentagon has relaxed uniform rules to allow Islamic beards,
turbans and hijabs. It's a major win for political correctness and a big loss for military unit cohesion.
First-Class Islam: Eric Holder Puts Muslims
Above Terror Suspicion. From 2008 to 2011, I was a guest lecturer at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (the primary DHS training
facility, located in coastal Georgia) and at Joint Special Operations University (which brings foreign officers to learn of U.S. irregular warfare,
located in Tampa). At both venues I was asked to lecture on the history of terrorism. [...] Only 14 of the 44 PowerPoint screens in my
presentation dealt with Islamic terrorism, although several of those actually mitigated against the concept. Nonetheless, in June 2009 I was
told that I could no longer lecture at FLETC, because the edict had come down from the new Obama administration that "no trainer who uses the term
'jihad' shall henceforth be used."
Obama Has Made it
Impossible for Israel to Strike Iran. It's done. Iran will get a bomb. They want a bomb and they will not be
denied unless somebody stops them. Obama does not want to stop them. He does not want a friendly regime in Iran. He
wants Iran as a counterforce to America and Israel. Obama is not a Muslim, but he is a radical. He sees the U.S. and Israel
as imperialistic and oppressive. He doesn't like the U.S. military. He'd cut it to nothing if he could get away with it.
The Editor asks...
What makes the writer think Obama's not a Muslim? There is abundant
evidence that Obama is in fact a Muslim.
Barack Obama — our appeaser in
chief. Obama and his team have worked to argue for Tehran against the American Congress for several months, insisting that
the representatives of the American people should accept the promises of an Iranian government which has spent the last 20 years
lying about its weapons programs. Not to speak of Iranian support for terrorism, murder of Americans, and domestic abuses.
Obama Is Eagerly
Mainstreaming the Iranian Regime. A State Department spokesman announced Monday that the United States and the European Union
will begin offering sanctions relief to Iran because the country "has begun to take concrete and verifiable steps to halt its nuclear program."
Here's just three items over the past week that suggest that Iran's behavior perhaps isn't quite worthy of State's praise: [...]
Holder's terror surrender.
If indeed he follows through on promises made to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and reported in yesterday's New York Times, Holder should quite
simply be impeached. Now no one supports racial profiling in the conduct of ordinary policing. Nor do we support the harassment
of our Muslim neighbors and friends. But to ignore the role of radical Islamists as a genuine security threat to this nation is nothing
short of insane.
KSM's Prison Communiqués: Enemy Combatants
Back to Being Criminal Defendants. I was invited to provide commentary Tuesday night [1/14/2014] on Megyn Kelly's Fox News
program ("The Kelly File") regarding the all too predictable but nevertheless appalling news that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed —
al Qaeda heavyweight, 9/11 mastermind, decapitator of Daniel Pearl, jihadist warring against America for the better part of two decades, and
murderer of nearly 3,000 of our fellow citizens — has been permitted to transmit propaganda out of the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay.
Obama's Failed Islamist
Outreach. Earlier this month, the president decided to approach the Islamists at the center of the Syrian revolution. Here's
why they spurned his offer of help against Assad.
The Syria mess is Obama's doing.
The terrible fact is that in every situation, in every conflict, Obama supports the jihadists.
Brotherhood Infiltrates Obama Administration. The radical Muslim Brotherhood is often dismissed in the media as a distant
threat. In fact, this sworn U.S. enemy isn't just overseas. It's inside the gates of the White House.
Team Obama's 'quiet
diplomacy' efforts = public betrayal of Pastor Saeed Abedini. Jihadists are not impressed by efforts at "reconciliation." They
are not won over by prisoner releases. They will gladly take our billions of dollars in sanctions relief and use it to enrich their nuclear
program. They do, however, understand the power of rigorous sanctions backed by credible threats of military force. They do understand
the necessity of giving concessions to avoid their own destruction.
Obama Negotiating with Hezbollah Terrorists. The Obama administration has entered secret talks with the Hezbollah terrorist
group, mediated by Great Britain, according to a report in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai, as relayed by the Jerusalem Post
Wednesday [11/27/2013]. The State Department lists Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Thirty years ago, Hezbollah bombed
a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 241. [...] The organization is also dedicated to Israel's destruction.
Obama — Islam's Trojan Horse! After supplying al Qaeda with arms to overthrow Gaddafi, Obama turns
more than a blind eye to al Qaeda's (Ansar al Sharia's) control of Benghazi. He hires them to provide "security" for our
American diplomats in Benghazi after drawing down our own security there. After the British and the Red Cross leave Benghazi,
Obama leaves our Consulate there in the hands of Al Qaeda and, when the attacks of September 11th, 2012 began, Obama beat a
hasty retreat from the situation room after 20 minutes and never checked in for an update! [...] When it was over and
Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were dead, Obama kept the FBI from entering Benghazi for
3 weeks and, all the while blamed the attacks on a YouTube video critical of Islam!
Punctuation modified and emphasis removed by The Editor.
says Obama administration LIED about details of nuke deal. Iranian officials claimed on Tuesday that the Obama administration
concocted a fact sheet on a landmark nuclear agreement that doesn't match what they endorsed over the weekend. [...] At issue are several
differences between the White House's summary of the accord and the plain text of the agreement between Iran, the U.S. and five other
industrialized nations — specifically the administration's claim that Iran has agreed to stop enriching uranium for the
next six months.
Iran: White House Lying About Details of
Nuke Deal. Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim
nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva. [...] The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details
of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced. However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday [11/26/2013]
rejected the White House's version of the deal as "invalid" and accused Washington of releasing a factually inaccurate primer that
misleads the American public.
The Editor says...
Wow, there's a surprise. The White House is lying about the Middle East. Again.
Obama's full grovel to Iran.
There's good news and bad news in Barack Obama's sucker deal with Iran. The Iranians get all the good news, and the West gets all the
bad news. [...] The president and his administration, having done the full grovel in Geneva, is now into full defensive mode. Stung
by the cries of disbelief in Washington from a growing number of his partisan allies in Congress, the president insists that his handiwork
"halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program."
Now the Twelfth Imam Can Come.
Among the many who decried the Obama Administration's catastrophic capitulation to the nuclear ambitions of the Islamic Republic of Iran,
none spelled out its potential consequences as trenchantly as Israel's Economy Minister Naftali Bennett: "We awoke this morning
to a new reality," he said Sunday. "A reality in which a bad deal was signed with Iran. A very bad deal. If a nuclear
suitcase blows up five years from now in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the deal that was signed this morning."
Obama Chose Dishonor. President Obama had to
choose between dishonor and war and he chose dishonor. Now we will have war. He has dishonored U.S. allies in the Middle East,
including Israel and the Persian Gulf states, by abandoning their security concerns regarding a nuclear Iran by believing that appeasing
Iran is the only way to avoid war.
Obama White House betrays an American
pastor. The Obama administration has left an American pastor behind. In its quest for a "deal" with the hostile, jihadist
Iranian regime, the Obama administration has thrown an American Christian, Saeed Abedini, under the bus — the latest American
victim in the administration's continual, naïve (at best) quest to bargain with Islamic radicals.
The Secret Talks Between Obama and the
Mullahs. I have long pointed out that Barack Obama's administration, and particularly president Obama himself, has been more than
likely clandestinely communicating and working with the Islamic Republic of Iran much longer than just before the current nuclear talks, and even
long before President Hassan Rouhani came to the United States to attend the UN General Assembly. Several national and international outlets
have just released more details and reports on this issue.
$150 million has gone to groups that back anti-American terrorist attacks. A new investigation
has revealed that the U.S. government has paid more than $150 million to groups that fund terror attacks against American soldiers. The
findings have been reported by the Pentagon itself as the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction compiled a list of 43 such
companies who are connected to Taliban leaders who have arranged bombs and attacks on American targets.
Security adviser to Obama says U.S. is an 'Islamic
country'. A member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council is under fire for tweeting that America is "an Islamic country."
After a Twitter user asked Mohamed Elibiary on Thursday [10/31/2013] to "show me just ONE example of an Islamic country where non Muslims are treated with
equality," he responded with the controversial tweet, which was first reported by the Washington Free Beacon: "America and yes I do consider the
United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!"
Obamacare Victims and Israel. As was the case with ObamaCare, the White
House knows that most Americans won't support its policy of doing nothing to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. So the White House never
says that this is its policy. Obama and his advisers insist that preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power is a central goal of the
administration. But their actions move US policy in the opposite direction.
Morsi Trial Expected to expose Obama's ties to Muslim Brotherhood.
If former Chief of Egyptian Intelligence Murad Muwafi, can prove Morsi's agreement to the presence of terrorists in Egypt and providing them with
protection, he will be executed for the crime of high treason. Egyptian intelligence had begun spying on and recording the telephone calls of
ousted President Morsi after it was discovered that he was leaking information to Palestinian Hamas and jihadi groups in efforts to sabotage the
Egyptian Army's efforts to eliminate terrorism in the Sinai Peninsula, mainly the demolition of secret tunnels between Egypt and Gaza, which Hamas
was using to smuggle arms, money, drugs and terrorists.
Homeland Security is quietly considering lifting ban on Libyans coming to US. The Department of Homeland Security is quietly considering
lifting a long-standing ban on Libyans coming to the U.S. for training in the aviation and nuclear fields, according to an internal document, raising
red flags for lawmakers who say Libya is still a security threat. "Now, more than ever, we have concerns about terrorist activity in that country,"
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told FoxNews.com. "Now the administration wants to normalize — that's just not acceptable."
Anti-terror rules relaxed to let Libyans get
military training in U.S. The Obama administration has drawn up draft rules that would end a decadeslong ban on Libyans getting military training
in the U.S., according to documents obtained by House Republicans who said Thursday [10/24/2013] that it's the wrong move after last year's Benghazi attack.
The administration says relations with Libya have "normalized" over the past two years and that the Libyan government has earned the right to have better access
to the U.S., which imposed the ban in 1983 after a wave of terrorist attacks involving Libyans.
The Editor says...
"Access to the U.S." is now a right? No, it's not. Military training can be done anywhere in the world.
The Muslim Brotherhood's Man in the White House.
When the State Department announced early in October that it was cutting hundreds of millions in military and other aid to Egypt, it was yet another manifestation
of Barack Obama's unstinting support for the Muslim Brotherhood, a support that has already thrown Egypt back into the Russian orbit. The aid cut was essentially
giving the Egyptian people a choice between Muslim Brotherhood rule and economic collapse. Nothing else could have been expected from Obama, who has been a
Brotherhood man from the beginning. Obama's support for the Brotherhood goes back to the beginning of his presidency.
Morsi Trial destined to lay bare Obama's Muslim Brotherhood connections.
After Obama's defeat at the hands of Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the Egyptians — which he still refuses to admit — Obama
continues to punish Egypt and its army. In Obama's failure to avoid an economic crisis in America, how is it he has time for War Games in
Egypt? Obama should be truly worried about how the trail of ousted President Mohammad Morsi will lead to the truth coming out on his
relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and their common goals.
Rand Paul: Aid fueling 'war on
Christianity'. Sen. Rand Paul on Friday detailed his opposition to sending foreign aid to many places in the Middle East, arguing that
doing so will fuel a "worldwide war on Christianity." "We are now arming Islamic rebels who are allied with Al Qaeda that attacked us on 9/11,"
Paul (R-Ky.) said, speaking to the Values Voter Summit. "Does that make any sense at all? American tax dollars should never be spent to
prop up a war on Christianity. But that's what's happening now across the globe."
The Muslim Brotherhood President. The State Department announced Wednesday [10/9/2013]
that it was cutting hundreds of millions in military and other aid to Egypt, and make no mistake: this was not a government shutdown move. This was the President of the United
States blackmailing a sovereign state to force it to restore the Muslim Brotherhood government he favors.
Dangerous Times: The Crisis-Monger.
The Obama presidency pre-emptively surrenders to the enemy whenever it gets a chance. It has appointed Muslim Brotherhood loyalists to high
positions in this administration. It has swept under the rug jihadist assaults on our military and our civilian population. It has
failed to stop the aggressive jihadist regime in Iran in its assault — not just on Israel, but on America itself.
Al-Shabaab and Obama's Family Push For Islamic
Kenya. Both the al-Shabaab terrorists and the Obama family want the nation of Kenya to be under Sharia code. Al-Arab wrote that Obama's
cousin, Musa Obama, "studied Sharia in Medina" and has called "upon the Arab and Islamic states to put more effort toward aiding the Kenyan Muslim brethren,
especially since there is much support coming from Western nations and Western churches."
Barack H. Obama wishes God's blessing on the leader of a terrorist state.
Obama to Rohani: May God be with you. "Have a nice day" — this
is how Iranian President Hassan Rohani concluded his phone conversation with US President Barack Obama, the first direct contact between leaders of the two
nations in over three decades. A message on Rohani's Twitter page, which has since been deleted, stated that Obama answered in Farsi by saying
"khodahafez" to indicate goodbye, whose literal meaning is "may God be with you."
Obama speaks by phone to Iran's Rouhani, sees chance for progress.
[Scroll down] Rouhani said on a Twitter feed believed to be genuine that in his phone conversation he told Obama "Have a Nice Day!" and Obama responded
with "Thank you. Khodahafez (goodbye)."
The Editor says...
Nice try, Reuters. Khodahafez means more than just goodbye.
Conversation With Obama Deleted From Twitter Account in Rouhani's Name. Another of the deleted updates, captured by The Lede, described the
two presidents wishing each other farewell in their own languages. Mr. Rouhani offering the American blessing, "Have a nice day!" and Mr. Obama
responding with the Persian word for goodbye, "Khodahafez" — literally, "May God protect you."
First the Mall, Now the Church.
ABC News reports that 43 people have died in a suicide bombing attack on a church in Pakistan. [...] Since only a little over 1% of the
population in that region is still Christian there isn't a whole lot of design margin left among the holdouts. They are going to be
wiped out. Not that the administration has proved very sensitive on the issue of ethnic cleansing without a lobby to plead on their
behalf. The administration's effort to reach out to the Muslim community has proved so successful one wonders Who's On First.
Or who employs whom.
Islam Needs an Intervention.
This real Islamophobia has been the pathetic stance of our government and military since 9/11, made worse by the delusions
of Barack Obama. Of course it has failed. How could it possibly succeed when it is fundamentally dishonest?
National Park Service produces
videos praising Islam. A series of videos produced for the National Park Service shows American Muslim students blaming hatred
against their faith on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The videos also promoted Islam as a pioneer in women's rights and
addressed a "general ignorance about what Islam is." "Islam within itself, Islam itself means peace," the government video states.
"Islam brings nothing but peace if you truly look into it." The video was posted on the website for the Women's Rights National Historical
Park. It was filmed at the AnNur Islamic School in Schenectady, N.Y. by a National Park Service intern.
Where Women's Rights, Islam, and Nature
Collide. Did you know that the National Park Service (NPS) is now in the business of promoting Islam? Or more specifically, promoting the
wonder that is women's rights under sharia law? [...] So what does the park service have to do with women's rights? And why in the world is the park
service shilling for Islam?
Government's Propaganda Isn't Even Subtle Any More. Tolerance of diverse groups isn't enough.
We must love all the diverse groups too, even if we have to lie to ourselves to do it. The National
Parks Service is making videos to indoctrinate us on that very issue. The video below pimps out
children to extoll the virtues of Islam, particularly their support of women's rights. You heard
me. Islam promotes women's rights. According to the girls in the video, Islam gives women
their rights and they have 'equity' as a result — not equality, equity.
If you believe Islam promotes women's rights and/or equality, you should
visit this page.
The Obama Mythology Has Been Shattered.
Poor Jay Carney. In the wake of this debacle he's trying to recreate the mythic Obama — the post-ideological, objective, empirically driven
statesman who would, through "smart diplomacy," open an exciting new chapter in relations with the Arab and Islamic world. It was all a mirage;
and all the world now knows it was a mirage.
President Barack Obama Defender of the Muslim Faith. [Scroll down] In
short, Obama is clearing the path to supply arms to the same terrorist group that killed almost 3,000 innocent souls on 9/11. Ever since his November 4,
2008 rockstar-like election, my friend Sarge and I have somewhat naively been waiting for Obama, whose father changed his name from 'Baraka' to the more
Christian-sounding 'Barack', to own up to being Muslim. We were waiting patiently for an announcement something along the lines of: "I am
reverting back to the religion of my forbears".
Lois Lerner + Malik Obama = White House IRS Scandal.
Whenever the subject of Malik Obama's ties to the government of Sudan comes up — via his role as Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da'wa Organization
(Muslim Brotherhood) — there are always detractors who say it's guilt by association. Just because the President's half-brother works for a
terrorist regime doesn't mean the President is guilty, they say, before attempting to move on. Not so fast.
supporter gets Homeland Security promotion. A controversial Homeland Security advisor who was recently promoted to senior fellow
is a self-declared Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and Mohamed Morsi supporter. Mohamed Elibiary, who was appointed to the Department of Homeland
Security Advisory Council by then-Secretary Janet Napolitano in 2010, tweeted Thursday [9/12/2013] that his appointment was renewed and his
Our Never Ending Obama Nightmare.
In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, an ally of America, was abandoned by President Obama, even though he kept the peace for 30 years.
The result of our abandonment was that the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, assumed power and shredded the country's
constitution. The Egyptian military with the support of millions of Egyptians have reasserted power, but no thanks to the
Obama administration, who remained on the sidelines.
Putin the Peacemaker vs.
Obama the Warmonger. President Obama has now sabotaged four decades of stability in the Middle East. [...] In the strangest twist of
history, it is Obama the radical leftist who is now acting as the destabilizing warmonger in the Middle East, while Vladimir Putin may be emerging
as a stabilizing peacemaker. Nobody can figure out whether Obama is the most hapless bumbler in history, or whether there is some sinister
purpose behind it all. It could be both.
Persecution on Our Road to
Damascus. The President's confused and confusing speech this week raised more questions than it answered. One of the most
important questions isn't even being asked by our foreign policy elites: Why should the U.S. back the Syrian rebels who are slaughtering
Christians in that war-racked country? Why should any American Christian support going to war for these rebels in Syria? Until the
Russians threw Mr. Obama a lifeline, we were preparing to align ourselves with persecutors of Christians in that country's civil war.
Welcome to the 'United States of al-Qaeda'. Is it possible that
the 50 CIA-trained 'soldiers' sneaking across the Syrian border today are members of Obama's Civilian National Security Force in military disguise?
With only 29.5 percent of American population approval, would any sincerely patriotic soldier now in the US Military follow the orders of a
commander in chief who would send them to fight side-by-side with al-Qaeda?
Administration is Proud to be Your Partner", Obama Tells Muslim Brotherhood Pro-Hamas Group. Obama taped a statement congratulating
ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas Holy Land funding case, on its anniversary, telling the Muslim Brotherhood terror-linked front
group, "My administration is proud to be your partner." [...] Speakers at the terror-linked group's convention that Barack Hussein Obama was
praising, include Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Co-Founder of Zaytuna College, and Muslim Brotherhood scion Tariq Ramadan who defended stoning women to death.
Obama Congratulates American Muslims for ISNA's 50th Anniversary Convention. President Barack Obama released a video message congratulating
American Muslims on the many achievements and contributions they have made to American society from its early history to present day.
Does Obama know he's fighting on
al-Qa'ida's side? If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured — for the very first time in history —
that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa'ida. Quite an alliance!
Egyptian Pol: 'Very Strong Perception'
Obama Backs Muslim Brotherhood. Speaking on August 22, the head of Egypt's Social Democratic Party Mohamed Abou El-Ghar said:
"America is losing Egypt... There is a very strong perception that they are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they are against other parties."
El-Ghar said this perception began growing when Senator John McCain (R-AZ) met with representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood in February 2012 but
would not meet with with representatives from other parties.
Obama's Strange Love Affair with the Muslim Brotherhood.
It's hard to fathom how or why our administration ever thought the Muslim Brotherhood saw democracy as other than a means to an end — and
a particularly repellent one at that — in the first place. It's not as if the MB is subtle. They have proclaimed who they are
since their founding by Hasan al Banna in 1928 and have not wavered in any significant way since in their global jihadist goals.
White House More Pro-Islamist On
Egypt Than The Saudis. The new military government in Egypt that just deposed Islamist rule there isn't Islamic enough for the Obama administration.
But Saudi Arabia, whose constitution is the Koran, is backing it.
Why is Obama "pro-Islamist?"
Here's a clue.
Thank Obama's Ego For The Carnage And
Crisis In Egypt. [After Anwar] Sadat's 1981 assassination his legacy of peace and close ties with the U.S. continued for three decades under his
successor, Hosni Mubarak. Why on earth did Barack Obama want to disturb this too-good-to-be-true state of affairs? In 2009, his grandiose speech in
Cairo apologized for America's historical role in the Middle East and snubbed Mubarak, setting the stage for the Egyptian president's overthrow by the mob.
As Egyptian Churches Are Put To the Torch, Obama's Reputation
Goes Up in Flames. As church after church is put to the torch in Egypt by members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies, one of the things that is
going up in flames is the reputation of President Obama. In the past 48 hours alone, some 57 Egyptian churches have been burned to the ground in the
Nile valley. It will not be lost on the Egyptians that Mr. Obama has spent the crisis playing golf at Martha's Vineyard.
It's Official: Obama Has Surpassed Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Carter infamously declared that America suffered from an "inordinate fear of Communism," but at least, as far as I can recall, he didn't actively promote or
side with Communist movements. Today Communism has collapsed, and America's number one enemy is the Muslim Brotherhood, progenitor of al Qaeda, Hamas and other
terrorist groups. Barack Obama not only tolerates the Brotherhood — [...] — but, for reasons that remain unfathomable, he has generally
Reaping What Obama's Sown in Egypt. President
Obama continues to offer his blessings to the theocratic totalitarians of the Muslim Brotherhood as they spill blood on Egyptian streets in an effort to
restore Mohamed Morsi to power. Our terrorist-supporting president has the gall to scold the military, the most stable, trusted institution in Egypt,
while his Islamofascist allies burn scores of Coptic churches in the region where Christianity began more than six centuries before the birth of Mohammed.
State Dept. 'Wanted Dead or Alive' Posters for Islamic Civil War. In Iraq the slaughter of
innocents is worth a $10-million bounty. When it happens in Fort Hood, it's called 'Workplace violence".
Obama's Hypocrisy on Gays. [Scroll down] Obama audaciously declared of
Russia: "I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them." Really?
Russia is not mutilating and executing gays the way Muslim regimes do under the Sharia. And Obama supports most vicious anti-gay regimes in the world. The gay community
should be disgusted by such political exploitation. The Muslim Brotherhood's genocidal position on homosexuality is quite clear. Where is Obama's condemnation?
The Continuing Brutal Legacy of the Religion of Peace.
As Barack Hussein Obama enjoys his vacation, he should ponder the brutality of Muslims against so many groups in the world, including other Muslims. Instead
of his fawning at the recent White House iftar dinner, he should remind these co-religionists that their religion defies the imagination for the sheer ferocity
against those who dare to resist.
Huma Abedin is the new Alger Hiss.
Even to question whether Abedin has any connections with the [Mulsim] Brotherhood, and whether those connections had any influence over Hillary Clinton's decisions as
secretary of State, is to demonstrate that one is a bigot, a racist, an Islamophobe, and a hatemonger, as well as a hysterical paranoiac.
Eid part of US tapestry of traditions: Obama. Muslims across the US celebrated Eid
on the same day to everyone's joy and relief. [...] US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle also sent their warmest greetings to Muslims
celebrating Eid Al-Fitr around the world, calling it "part of a great tapestry of America's many traditions." "Michelle and I send our warmest
greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid-Al-Fitr in the United States and around the world," Obama said in his message.
Jarrett's Father-in-Law Linked to OPEC Funded Islamic Plot to Fund Obama. One can look to how President Obama has cozied up to the Islamic
nations, while shunning the Christian and Jewish faiths. [...] One can look at how President Obama has worked over time to hamper America's ability to
explore our own natural resources, like oil, while actively working with the Saudis to up their production, and our imports from the Kingdom,
significantly. One can step back and look at how President Obama has conducted himself in general, as well as his lifelong associations
with radicals, and the following story won't be hard to believe at all.
Obama and the theater of the absurd. For the last week, the Obama Administration has been in overdrive, suddenly engaged in the war on
terror that it has denied for the last four and a half years. Though al-Qaeda was supposedly on the run, diminished or dying out, they have
managed to cause us to shut down our embassies throughout the Middle East and completely evacuate our staff in Yemen.
Obama marks end of Ramadan with
more Syrian aid. President Obama on Wednesday announced the U.S. would give an additional $195 million in humanitarian aid to
displaced Syrians as a gesture to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the Muslim holy month. "Many of us have had the
opportunity to break fast with our Muslim friends and colleagues — a tradition that reminds us to be grateful for our blessings and to
show compassion to the less fortunate among us, including millions of Syrians who spent Ramadan displaced from their homes, their families, and their
loved ones," the president said in a statement.
The Editor asks...
How much money does Obama give away to celebrate Christmas or Easter?
Caustic Light on White House's
Reaction to a Terrorist Threat. The Obama administration's decision to evacuate so many diplomats on such short notice —
however justified by the seriousness of the threat — has upset some of its foreign partners, who say the gesture contributes to a sense
of panic and perceived weakness that plays into the hands of the United States' enemies, and impedes their efforts to engage with people in their
countries. Some American officials have also said they believe the administration overreacted, in large part because of the political fallout
from the attack last year on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi [...]
Now Obama [is] Offering
Amnesty To Terrorists, Too. As President Obama locks down U.S. embassies across the Muslim world in response to terrorist threats,
he's giving thousands of terrorists amnesty in Afghanistan. Buried inside a lengthy unclassified report released last week by the Pentagon
is a description of something called the Afghan Peace and Reintegration Program, through which the administration started to pay terrorists to
walk off the battlefield.
State Department Sits Down with
Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood announced that it held a meeting with an American delegation on Saturday [8/3/2013],
including the U.S. ambassador reviled among the Tamarod movement for cozying up with the Islamists.
On Closed Embassies, the
Worldwide Travel Alert, and Wimpitude. Don't know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even
humiliating. Why do we allow a bunch of extremist thugs to close us down, rather than the reverse? For what purpose to we pay for the
world's best military and largest intelligence services if not to protect ourselves from this sort of threat?
The Editor says...
Why is the U.S. so soft on terrorists and such a cowardly pushover when terrorists huff and puff? It makes no sense — unless
Obama himself is a Muslim, and then it makes perfect sense.
Sequester, U.S. Giving Islamists $500 Million. The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted
investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he's earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists.
Global Jihad Is Here. In fact, historians may date the
start of the Global Jihad to October 1979 — to the Islamic Revolution in Iran, after Jimmy Carter betrayed our loyal ally the shah of Iran
to the most cruel and oppressive reactionary ideology in the world. That was the first major explosion of Muslim imperialism in modern times.
Iran is now moving toward nukes and missile production, with the quiet consent of Barack Hussein Obama.
'Throughout Our History, Islam Has Contributed to the Character of Our Country'. President Obama welcomed dozens of ambassadors
and a handful of lawmakers to last night's [7/25/2013] iftar dinner at the White House to break the day's Ramadan fast by saying "throughout
our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country."
Obama Hosts Iftar Dinner for Muslims
at White House. President Barack Obama praised the accomplishments of Muslims in America at his fifth annual Iftar dinner.
The event was hosted at the White House Thursday [7/25/2013]. Iftar is an observance of the Muslim Holy month of Ramadan. The
president praised Muslim entrepreneurs, innovators, and pioneers for their contributions to America.
The Editor asks...
When has Mr. Obama ever hosted an Easter dinner? Who are the great Muslim innovators, and what have they created?
Obama celebrates Ramadan:
'Islam has contributed to the character' of US. President Obama late Thursday [7/25/2013] celebrated Ramadan with a traditional dinner in the
State Dining Room, saying that throughout the nation's history, "Islam has contributed to the character of our country." In remarks before
the Iftar dinner, eaten by Muslims after sunset to end the day of fasting, Obama quoted from the Koran, according to a White House pool report.
"As the Koran teaches, whoever does an atom's weight of good will see its results." "Muslim-Americans and their good works have helped to build
our nation, and we've seen the results," he added.
The Editor says...
Name one Muslim who "helped to build our nation."
Graham: Why is Obama Silent as Iran Tortures American Pastor? One of the nation's most prominent evangelical leaders wants to
know why President Obama has remained silent as Iran tortures an American pastor held captive in one of the Islamic republic's most notorious
prisons. Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, told Fox News the imprisonment
and torture of Pastor Saeed Abedini is a blatant example of "religious intolerance."
US to halt F-16 supplies to Egypt due to 'current situation'. US
President Barack Obama has taken a personal decision to suspend the delivery of F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, claiming it is no longer "appropriate"
following the toppling Mohamed Morsi's government. "Given the current situation in Egypt, we do not believe it is appropriate to move
forward at this time with the delivery of F-16s," Pentagon spokesman George Little said in a statement. Little said that Obama had been
unanimously supported by his security team. Four fighter jets were to be delivered to Egypt this week as part of the $1.3 billion
military assistance package for the country.
Obama's propped up Muslim Brotherhood Bosom Buddy Out!
The outcome of what may have been the largest pro-democracy demonstrations in human history has shown President Barack Hussein Obama for
what he really is: a Muslim Brotherhood-advocating failure. With Obama's $250 million March 2013 gift still in his
pocket; the 12 F-16s already delivered this year, with the promise of another eight by the end of the year, and 200 (count 'em) Abrams
tanks, Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is under house arrest.
Egypt's Dangerous Turmoil Is
Ultimately Obama's Doing. In demonstrations against Hosni Mubarak in 2011, President Obama insisted our imperfect ally had to go.
Now that Egyptians want his disastrous Islamist replacement removed, the U.S. stands by its man.
Another Fine Mess Obama's
Gotten Us Into In Mideast. Is it too late, Mr. President, to get a refund on the billions in aid you gave the Islamist thugs
in Egypt? How about the F-16s and Abrams tanks you sent? It's now painfully obvious you invested in the wrong regime.
hails Muslim holiday as symbol of tolerance for other faiths. [Quoting Barack Hussein Obama:] I have been honored to host an iftar
dinner at the White House each of the past four years, and this year I look forward to welcoming Muslim Americans who are contributing to our country
as entrepreneurs, activists and artists. I wish Muslims across America and around the world a month blessed with the joys of family, peace and
understanding. Ramadan Kareem.
When is Obama so enthusiastically effusive about Christianity?
Ramadan Time to 'Celebrate the Principles That Bind People of Different Faiths'. Happy Ramadan from President Obama.
Obama Demands Peaceful Surrender to
Brotherhood. Barack Obama's administration is the best American friend the global caliphate movement has ever had. Obama, a
notorious backstabber of accomplices who have outlived their usefulness, is now demonstrating that he is capable of steadfast comradeship when
his heart is in it, responding to the mass uprising and military coup that has toppled Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood regime by demanding that the
Brotherhood be allowed to participate in whatever form of government comes next.
When is a coup not a coup? With $1.5bn on the line.
In Through the Looking Glass, Humpty tells Alice: "When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean —
neither more nor less." The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, doesn't have that luxury. If he called the Egyptian
military's intervention in the democratic process a "coup", it would clearly mean the huge amount of aid the US gives to Egypt would
have to be cut off.
White House Try to Beat Back Belief That They're Rooting for Muslim Brotherhood. Three days after the ouster of Egyptian President
Mohamed Morsi, Secretary of State John Kerry finally spoke about the revolution in a late Saturday night statement — in an effort to
beat back widespread sentiment that the U.S. backed and continues to support the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama says U.S. is not aligned with any
Egyptian party: White House. President Barack Obama condemned the violence in Egypt on Saturday [7/6/2013] and said that the United
States was not working with any particular Egyptian political party or group as the country reels from a military takeover.
Sheikh who OK'd killing
Americans in Iraq gets White House reception. Steve Emerson and John Rossomando of the Investigative Project reported last night that
Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah, vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), was received by senior Obama administration officials
in the White House on June 13.
Obama to Egyptian Christians: Don't
Protest the Brotherhood. As Egyptians of all factions prepare to demonstrate in mass against the Muslim Brotherhood and President
Morsi's rule on June 30, the latter has been trying to reduce their numbers, which some predict will be in the millions and eclipse the
Tahrir protests that earlier ousted Mubarak. Among other influential Egyptians, Morsi recently called on Coptic Christian Pope
Tawadros II to urge his flock, Egypt's millions of Christians, not to join the June 30 protests.
The IRS, the NSA, and Obama's Dirty Tricks.
[Scroll down] The NSA collection of data also has a political motivation. Since the NSA is clearly violating the Fourth Amendment and the Patriot
Act, the information they are gathering cannot be used in court. It would be very difficult for the government to prosecute a terrorist — and
Obama wants terrorists prosecuted in criminal court — if the information they obtained violated their rights. Proof of this is the fact that
Obama wanted the Boston bomber to be given a lawyer and Miranda rights. So the investigation of the Boston bombing case — an investigation
likely to yield important information about the terrorist network in the U.S. — was stopped by none other than the president, who claimed the NSA
wiretapping is necessary only for national security.
As Egypt unravels, Team Obama
increases support for Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi made international headlines this week as he
appointed Adel Al Khayat as governor of Luxor, an ancient Egyptian city that is key tourist destination. The problem with Mr. Khayat? He just
happens to lead the "political" arm of a terrorist organization that massacred tourists in Luxor in 1997. The details of the attack are beyond grisly,
with many of the dead disemboweled and notes "praising Islam" placed inside their mutilated bodies.
announces extra $300 million in aid for Syrians, refugees. The U.S. is to give more than $300 million in additional
"life-saving humanitarian assistance" to Syrians caught up in the country's civil war, Barack Obama has announced, taking the total amount
given since the conflict began to nearly $815 million.
The Editor asks...
Can Mr. Obama generate $300 million dollars just by announcing it, and then spend it on whatever he pleases? What part of the
Constitution authorizes such a thing?
The New American Enemies List.
The CIA and FBI knew of the suspicious activity of the Boston bombers, of Major Hasan, and of Anwar al-Awlaki. And they did
nothing to preempt their violence. The FBI is said to be carefully avoiding monitoring mosques, although all of the above
terrorists were known by many fellow Muslim worshipers to be either disturbed or extremist or both.
The False Excuse of National Security.
[Scroll down] So why are we giving billions, and F-16s, to our enemies? In May, Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry sent
yet another $1.3 billion in aid to Egypt, now controlled by the Islamic Jihadi Muslim Brotherhood, by waiving Egypt's failure to meet
standards in the law. To get aid, Egypt must show progress toward democracy and civil rights. Kerry waived the requirement.
(These payments seem like "tribute" paid to a dominant Muslim Caliphate to buy temporary peace.)
Obama is Abrading the Social Fabric.
[Scroll down] In any event, with the FBI having ignored specific warnings from the Russians about the Boston bombers and the
administration announcing it will provide military support for the Syrian rebels just as they in turn announce their affiliation
with Al Qaeda, the need for this elaborate record-gathering becomes ever less clear. From the outside it seems as if in Syria,
Libya, Afghanistan, Iran, and Egypt we are doing everything in our power to strengthen our enemies. What's the point then
creating this expensive apparatus to permit listening to their communications as if we still regarded them as enemies?
Obama's Multiplying Foreign
Policy Failures. Just yesterday [6/13/2013] the Obama administration admitted what our allies have long said — that
the Syrian regime used chemical weapons against opposition forces.
'Arrest Obama when he visits'.
The Muslim Lawyers Association in Johannesburg wants US President Barack Obama arrested and tried for war crimes when he arrives in South
Africa on June 29. It submitted a 600-plus page document to the Office of the National Director of Public Prosecutions on
Friday [6/14/2013] asking for an investigation into Obama's involvement in the Middle East.
Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers. The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke
is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are. That's right, the government's sweeping
surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized. Since
October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level
approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee. Who makes up
this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.
Report Details U.S.
Government's 'Disastrous Muslim Outreach'. A new report documents the failures of Muslim outreach conducted by
the U.S. government before and after the Sept. 11 attacks, faulting both Republican and Democrat administrations for reaching out
to known terrorist funders and leaders. Published by the Israel-based Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center by
Patrick Poole, a counterterrorism consultant and investigative reporter, the 14,000-word exposé details the federal government's
"long-standing policy of engaging extremists." Among the many examples, Poole cites government leaders inviting radical cleric Anwar
al-Awlaki to the Pentagon, just months after one of his spiritual disciples had flown a plane into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Not-So-Veiled Threat
to Non-Muslims in Tennessee. The attempted snow job by the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) of Tennessee which
sponsored the joint Department of Justice/FBI event, "Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society," Tuesday night in Manchester, Tennessee,
did not work with the 2,000 attendees. [...] A well-informed crowd responded with calls of "taqiyyah" when members of AMAC, a group that
bills itself as "a bridge between the Muslim community and law enforcement," touted Muslim contributions to U.S. society and their
dedication to upholding American values.
U.S. Gives Saudi Airlines
'Unrestricted' Access to American Skies. The United States and Saudi Arabia have signed an Open Skies agreement that
will "permit unrestricted air service by the airlines of both countries between and beyond the other's territory." The
agreement means Saudi airlines may fly from any point in the kingdom to any point in the United States, and that U.S. airlines
may fly from any point here to any airport in Saudi Arabia.
Purged Training Materials Deemed 'Offensive' to Muslims by the Professionally Offended. According to Judicial Watch, it has
obtained documents that show the Federal Bureau of Investigations intentionally blinding itself.
Years of Collaboration with Terror Supporters. As the Obama administration seeks to move beyond a welter of scandals,
a new report by investigative journalist Patrick Poole reveals that the frenzy isn't quite over yet. On top of the IRS's
targeting of conservatives, the DOJ's seizure of reporters' phone records and the coverup surrounding the murder of four Americans
in Benghazi, the White House's years-long collaboration with supporters of terrorism is finally getting the scrutiny it deserves.
US Attorney Bill Killian: Posting Something Mean About Muslims on Social Media Might Be a
Criminal Action Under Federal Civil Rights Laws. The First Amendment served us well for a time, but now it's outdated.
Remember reading that England had arrested a guy for anti-Muslim Twitter postings in the aftermath of the Woolrich slaughter? And
remember thinking, "Well, this is America, that can't happen here"? Oh yes it can. Obama's Attorney for the Eastern district
of Tennessee wants you to know that if you say something untoward about Muslims, the Federal government may imprison you.
Room for Islamistgate: the Obama Administration's New Scandal. Up to now the Obama Administration has
faced three big scandals — the IRS, the bugging of AP and Fox, and Benghazi. And now here is scandal
Number 4: For the last four years the Obama Administration has conducted a major "outreach" program to Islamic
groups in the United States and in the Middle East. Patrick Poole has been investigating this project and in a
comprehensive article now presents the full scoop and scope of what's been going on.
what you say about Muslims on social media. How many civil-rights prosecutions are currently in progress against Muslims
who say inflammatory things on social media? [...] This is also the same government that flagrantly abused the power of the Internal
Revenue Service, and other agencies, to oppress political dissidents. There are a lot of Tea Party groups who wish the only thing
they had to fear from Democrat politicians is offensive Facebook chatter. No one in this government seems terribly concerned
about protecting their hurt feelings, or encouraging the rest of the American public to treat them with dignity and respect.
DoJ places a chill on criticism
of Islam. By "spreading information considered inflammatory against Muslims" — even if it's true — you
could violate the civil rights act and be subject to prosecution. We all know that this new ruling will target those considered to be
"blasphemers" against Islam. Muslims here and around the world have been after western governments to enforce their idea of
blasphemy and to punish those who speak out against Islam.
Barack Obama: Don't say 'Islamic
terrorism'! 'Words that Work,' produced by the State Department's Counterterrorism Communications Center, found that Islam
and terrorism are not linked. So that's official! Islamism or militant Islam and terrorism are not linked either. There is
absolutely no connection whatsoever between Islam, in any of its forms, and terrorism. The only thing that is linked to terrorism
are various 'death cults' or 'sects'. This is now the truth according to Barack Obama too. Obama ordered a revision of
America's National Security Strategy, around three years ago, so as to erase all possible connections between Islam and terrorism.
That is, between Islam and anything violent. This is thought control. It's all really about words; not about realities or
Obama FBI leaking information to terror-linked CAIR? This is what happens when the
FBI refuses to present a coherent story on how an interviewee is shot dead and when agents leak to terror-linked Muslim groups.
Barack Obama, George Orwell, and Terror.
Lying can be a conscious choice or an accidental habit. The leader "Big Brother" did it all the time in 1984, but lying can also come from
sloppy language. President Obama and his team use euphemisms to describe Arab-Islamic terror. Fort Hood was "workplace violence," Detroit a
"lone gunman." Obama and his staff got so wrapped up in "politically correct" and factually wrong syntax that they could not see the truth even when
it bit them in the leg in Benghazi. Their own discourse trapped them in a policy of inaction and clumsy cover-up.
Muslim Advocates Urge Reduced FBI Anti-jihad Role.
Politically influential Muslim activists are pushing to reduce the FBI's role in countering Islamic terrorism and are seeking greater federal reliance on hard-line
orthodox Imams. The White House's "Countering Violent Extremism" program "did not produce the results a lot of us were hopeful ... [and] kind of collapsed
towards the end of last year," complained Mohamed Elibiary, a Texas-based advocate who was appointed to the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
State Department Denies Libya Weapons Buyback program
Exists. Gunrunning from Libya into Syria is a violation of international law. Furthermore, one has to
ask how arming rebels in Syria would serve America's interests because it doesn't. Just like it didn't serve America's
interest in Egypt or Libya where the Muslim Brotherhood has steadily gotten or is gaining power. Arms running would
also explain why the Obama-Clinton regime gave "stand-down" orders and denied providing any help to Americans in peril.
Whose side is he on?
Obama Administration Calls
for the 'Human Rights' of Jihadi Murderers. It's well known that whenever jihadis attack and slaughter innocent
people — especially Christians — the Obama administration tries to ignore or whitewash. Lesser known,
however, is that whenever foriegn governments try to subdue the jihadis, the Obama administration objects and calls for the "human
rights" of the terrorists.
Terrorists given new identities allowed to board commercial flights, IG report finds.
An investigation of the Justice Department's witness protection program uncovered glaring security problems that allowed terrorists who had been
given new identities after cooperating with U.S. prosecutors to board commercial flights in the United States. In some cases, suspects
whose names were on federal watch lists that were meant to keep them off commercial aircraft were nevertheless able to board flights because
the Justice Department had failed to add their new, government-issued identities to counterterrorism databases.
guidelines advise deference to pro-sharia Muslim supremacists. The Department of Homeland Security, which under Secretary Janet Napolitano
has shown a keen interest in monitoring and warning about outspoken conservatives, takes a very different approach in monitoring political Islamists,
according to a 2011 memo on protecting the free speech rights of pro-Shariah Muslim supremacists.
Stop Mollycoddling Islamists. Was the FBI's failure to track Tamarlan Tsarnaev a matter not just of bad luck or incompetence,
but actually the result of outlandish policy choices by the Obama administration? [...] That's the only explanation I can imagine for
not continuing surveillance of somebody who had been reported by a foreign government to have extremist ties, whose public
electronic communications were full of Islamic rage and jihadist sympathies, who attended an Islamic religious center with extremist ties,
who had been detained for anger issues (abusing his girlfriend) — and who, quite strangely, showed no visible distress about
the murder of a good friend.
How Obama Betrayed America.
Far from shouldering his responsibility as the commander-in-chief of America's global War on Terror and embracing it as this
generation's equivalent of the Cold War, Obama showed his distaste for the entire enterprise by dropping the term "War on Terror" and
replacing it with an Orwellian phrase — "overseas contingency operations." Minimizing the Islamist threat to the
United States is not an oversight of the Obama administration; that is its policy.
The Humiliation of John Kerry.
The secretary of state was back in Washington on Thursday, begging the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to take it easy on the poor
Iranians. Enough with the sanctions, he said. Secretary Kerry has joined decades of his predecessors, buying into the latest
version of the 30-year old illusion that we can make a deal with the Tehran regime if only we deal properly and humbly with them.
Air Force Recruits Chaplains From
Muslim Brotherhood Front Group. The U.S. Air Force has confirmed to The Clarion Project that it paid nearly $5,000 for advertisements in the magazine
of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial that was also labeled a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity
by the government. The Air Force said it would continue to consider paying ISNA for ads.
Whose Side Is he On? Obama has never been a president for
all of the American people. From the very beginning of his Regime, he immediately set out to divide Americans and pit us against each other. He is a
president who has been working to demoralize, discourage and defeat a large percentage of us. For the first time in our lives, we know we have a
president who is not on our side.
Whose side is Obama on? Team Obama decided precipitously to
charge the surviving alleged bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in civilian court. This action resulted in his being read Miranda rights and obtaining a lawyer,
prompting him to refuse to answer more questions from investigators. Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy observed, "Obama was determined
to end the public debate over whether the jihadist is a wartime enemy combatant or a mere criminal defendant."
a President Who Has Promised to 'Stand with the Muslims' Protect Americans? The negative implications of Obama's time in
office will be felt for decades, but one thing is clear. The U.S. President who does not recognize America's exceptionalism and
who has promised to stand with Muslims has been unable to keep Americans safe from Islamic terror — both at home and abroad.
Gohmert: Muslim Brotherhood Is Guiding Obama In Boston Bombings Investigation. Appearing on World Net
Daily's radio show, Gohmert speculated that Attorney General Eric Holder read bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights to "shut him up" and undermine the
investigation into the brothers' possible ties to radical Islam. "It's very clear to everybody but this administration that radical Islam is at war against
us," he said, before noting that Obama has displayed a "real pattern" of "incompetence" in responding to the threat from extremists during his tenure.
The 'Public Safety' Follies.
It has now been reported by Fox's Megyn Kelly that the FBI's interrogation of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was
short-circuited when the Justice Department arranged for him to be given a presentment hearing in the hospital. In point of fact,
it was not the hearing that caused the suspension of vital intelligence-gathering. It was the Obama Justice Department's decision
over the weekend immediately to file a criminal charge against Tsarnaev.
The Price of Obama's Islamophilia.
The father of the jihadist who tried to blow up a plane over Detroit in 2009 went to a CIA office in Africa and announced to anyone
who cared to listen that his son was a threat to the U.S. No one did. Major Nidal Hasan, the jihadist who shot up Fort
Hood, spared American intelligence even that minor step of dot-connecting. He held public presentations on his hatred of America
and sympathy for suicide bombers. The soldiers in the audience politely listened, not wanting to risk demotion or open themselves
up to scoldings from their PC overlords. Some of Hasan's colleagues even thought he had the makings of a thoughtful adviser to the
government on Islamic affairs.
rebels announce plans to implement Sharia; U.S. gives them $123 million more in aid. What is a "moderate form" of Sharia?
Wherever Sharia is implemented, it is markedly similar in form, contrary to the dissembling claims of Islamic supremacist spokesmen in the U.S.
like Imam Faisal Rauf and Reza Aslan, who claim that it is so amorphous as to defy characterization.
I Saw Something, So I'm Saying Something.
I've seen Janet Napolitano, Obama's Homeland Security Secretary, refuse to use the term "terrorism" and insist on calling jihad-inspired carnage
"man-caused disasters." [...] I've seen Obama's Department of Defense, which prosecutes our War on Man-Caused Disasters, order a complete purge
of "anti-Islamic content" from all military training materials. [...] Just this month, I've seen a U.S. Army training instructor teach his military students
that "Evangelical Christianity" is the leading movement of dangerous "Religious Extremism," along with "Catholicism" and "Islamophobia."
We Are Not Serious About Stopping
Islamic Terror. Our President praises the public for not being terrorized, then lectures us not to "rush to judgment" about the
bombers' motivations and "certainly not about entire groups of people." Translation: we're not going to talk about the jihadi war
on us. Hope for the best. Do not pay attention to the problem of Islamic imperialism.
Synonymous With Terrorism. For someone who goes out of his way to miniaturize the threat from terrorism, terrorism sure seems
to dog this president. When will President Obama face up to this growing evil?
Training Manual Purged References to Islamic Terror. [Scroll down] However, around the same time the bureau interviewed
Tsarnaev, changes in the FBI training manual took place as well. The FBI's own departmental counter-terrorism analytic lexicon was purged
of key words that could reference Islamic terrorism. Words like Muslim, Islam, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and sharia were not mentioned
once in the FBI's counter-terrorism lexicon afterwards.
Flashback to 2/17/2011:
Obama Administration Opened up Muslim Immigration
Floodgates. President Barack Hussein Obama, in a determination letter to Congress, has announced that he will allow an additional
80,000 immigrants — mostly from Islamic countries — to resettle in the United States during fiscal year 2011. Mr.
Obama says that the increase in Muslim immigrants "is justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest."
Covering Up Saudi Role In Boston Bombings? Could a Saudi terror cell be behind another major U.S. attack? And could
the Saudi government be trying to sink the investigation? After 9/11, the Saudi ambassador demanded the evacuation of dozens of
Saudi nationals, including bin Laden kin, before the FBI could properly question them. He got his wish, even though 15 of
the 19 hijackers were Saudis and others had ties to the plot. Eerily similar high-level intervention is taking place in the
Boston bombings case.
about the Boston bombing.
America will Survive Obama.
[Scroll down] Now we have a president who confuses slavery and liberty, most obviously in the case of the Islamist Spring, which is
certainly not an Arab Spring, since in Syria alone nearly 100,000 Arabs have killed each other by now. Some Spring!
Religious Freedom Appointee Involved in Muslim Event Calling for Limits to 1st Amendment. America's free-speech model is in
desperate need of an update, says an American-Muslim human rights activist who recently spoke at an event linked to an Obama administration
appointee. Dr. Qasim Rashid argued that cyber-bullying laws could be used to limit freedom of expression — such as the
burning of Korans — in war time.
White House Partners
with Muslim Brotherhood Front. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and
an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, recently toured the White House and met with multiple
officials. According to the group, Paul Monteiro, Associate Director of the Office of Public Engagement, "cited ISNA as his primary
means of outreach to the American Muslim community."
Obama's Islamist Tilt. Important overseas
populations are drawing the conclusion that the Obama administration is quietly realigning itself in the Middle East, toward the Islamists.
GOP Rolls Over for Obama and Recommends Brennan
for CIA Post. During a press conference in September 2010 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., respected
experts, including officials from the Florida Security Council, told reporters that because of Brennan's adherence to the
politically-correct orthodoxy that permeates the Obama administration, the U.S. government is being prevented from identifying,
understanding and countering radical Muslims and their threat of imposing Shariah law.
Ingrates. Were it not for a single post
at the Weekly Standard, Michelle Obama and John Kerry would have presented the International Women of Courage Award to Samira Ibrahim on
Friday afternoon [3/8/2013]. This despite the fact that Ibrahim is a raging anti-Semite and celebrant of 9/11, including the
Islamist observation of the anniversary at the American embassy in Cairo this past September.
Exposed By Egypt Foreign Aid. What are we to make of the U.S. suddenly finding $250 million to spare for Egypt during a
suppsedly devastating sequester?
Brennan Signals 'Our Saudi Partners'.
When President Obama met Saudi King Abdullah in London in 2009, the former bowed low before the latter. No American president
had ever so abased himself before one of the world's most oppressive rulers before. Now, Mr. Obama has nominated John Brennan
to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency. [...] When he spoke of Jerusalem — his "most loved city in the
world" — he referred to it first by its Arabic name, al Quds. Nobody refers to Jerusalem as al Quds
unless he wants to send a signal: "I agree with you."
3 Stooges are running the country. As the new Secretary of State, Kerry is boning up on Islam and has learned that it "is
not represented by a lot of jihadists and others," but is, instead, "a beautiful religion." [...] That should be enough to immediately
let us know the direction of Kerry's tenure in his new position, a direction wholeheartedly endorsed by President Obama.
Secretary of State Kerry Doesn't Know About Democracy or Islam... Would Fill a Book. In contrast to a proper approach,
Kerry makes the American system sound like letting the deranged walk the streets as homeless people, babbling incoherently but doing
little harm. Sure, let them cling to their guns and religion while we smart people make all the decisions. He's merely
turning around a traditional left-wing critique of democracy that comes from Herbert Marcuse or Noam Chomsky, of "repressive
tolerance." And that seems to be what Kerry and Obama really believe.
The Islamic cloud over Brennan
and Hagel. [Scroll down] The report stated that Mr. Brennan was converted to Islam while CIA station chief in Saudi
Arabia from 1996 to '99. Let's be clear: In America, a man's religion can never be a condition to his holding a government
position. It is protected by both the First Amendment and Article 6 of the Constitution. Therefore, even if it is true
that he converted, Mr. Brennan's religion should not be an issue. However, [...] what should be an issue was the Saudis' targeted
recruitment of Mr. Brennan to the ideology of Islam while he was serving as the CIA station chief in Riyadh. This was not just a
conversion but a political act by a foreign intelligence service. If verified, this would indicate Mr. Brennan's susceptibility,
whether witting or unwitting, to manipulation by a foreign intelligence entity.
spook who couldn't see the perils of jihad. John Brennan, President Obama's nominee for CIA director,
does not believe we are at war with jihadists because "jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning
to purify oneself or one's community, and there's nothing holy, legitimate, or Islamic about murdering innocent men
and women." On May 26, 2010, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Mr. Brennan
said, "Nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or Islamists." That is Mr. Brennan's view, but how about the
view of the Islamist enemies who are fighting us?
President, the war against al-Qaeda is far from won. There are times, such as last night's State of the Union address,
when I think President Barack Obama has taken leave of reality. How he can claim, when half the Arab world is being overrun by
Islamist militants, that al-Qaeda is now a shadow of its former self is beyond comprehension.
The next Director of the CIA calls Jerusalem... "Al Quds". Aside from his hippy past,
and his horrible, obsequious Arabic, the thing that made me most uncomfortable about Brennan's whole paean to Islam is the fact that he
said "Palestine" twice and never said Israel, and when he finally felt compelled to say Jerusalem, after saying "Al Quds" twice he
sounded like he was either going to spit or apologize for mentioning the word Jerusalem in the presence of his audience.
IPT Expose Brennan Letter: FBI Training 'Substandard and Offensive' to Muslims. Steven Emerson and the Investigative Project on Terrorism have
revealed that on Oct. 19, 2011, Muslim Advocates President and Executive Director Farhana Khera sent a letter to Chief Counterterrorism Advisor John
Brennan, listing numerous Islamic-based grievances against the FBI. On Nov. 3, 2011, Brennan capitulated and began a fundamental change of
Obama's choice for CIA chief 'converted to Islam' former FBI agent claims. The incoming head of the CIA converted to
Islam while working as a station chief in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s, a former FBI agent has claimed. John Guandolo, who retired
from the FBI in 2008, said in a radio interview that John Brennan — who has been nominated by Barack Obama as the new director
of the CIA — visited the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina accompanied by Saudi officials who may have persuaded him
Obama calls al-Qaida 'shadow of former
self'. President Barack Obama says al-Qaida is a "shadow of its former self," and does not pose the kind of threat to
America that requires tens of thousands of U.S. troops to fight abroad.
Things Only a Democrat Could Get Away With.
Obama's surrender in Iraq paved the way for the regional resurgence of Al Qaeda. It put a spring in the step of every enemy from Iran to the Muslim
Brotherhood to the grimmer sort of Salafis. It convinced them that they could take on the United States and win. Like Hillary [Clinton], Obama
has never been held accountable for any of it. And Hillary's very lack of accountability, her immunity from accountability makes her eminently
qualified for the top spot in a Democratic Party where it's more important to know how to shrug off accountability than it is to get things right.
The Obama Vacuum. Obama's desire to
disengage from the Middle East was driven at first by his politically useful cartoon version of Bush's Iraq, a "quagmire" that he
wished to avoid at all costs. But now, at the beginning of his second term, Obama seems to fear U.S. intervention of any kind.
Why Is Obama Clinging
to the Brotherhood? The Obama administration, which has been bragging to the press about Egypt being one of its foreign
policy accomplishments, is standing aloof from a situation that the head of the Egyptian military said had brought the country to the
edge of collapse. While the president may pride himself for helping to hasten the end of the Mubarak dictatorship and pressured
the country's military not to interfere with the Brotherhood's drive to take control of the country, he seemed to have gone silent just
at the moment when the secular opposition there needs him to speak up. Why?
Hillary Clinton's Legacy.
What responsibility did Mrs. Clinton have for the serial Team Obama decisions that helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt?
Is she concerned that, by so doing, Islamists determined not only to foster hatred for Israel but to pursue its destruction are now in a
position to try again, for the first time since 1973? How does Mrs. Clinton justify, under such circumstances, sending to the
Egyptian military additional U.S.-made fighter planes and tanks — weapons whose use, as a practical matter, can only be for
waging war against the Israelis?
When you arm Islamists, you become a willing participant in your own undoing.
Apes, Pigs, and F-16s.
When Morsi fulminates that Muslims "must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all
those who support them," he is taking his cues straight from the Koran. Or rather, from the Holy Koran, as "progressive"
American politicians take pains to call it in the off hours from their campaign to drive every last vestige of Judeo-Christian culture from
the public square.
Egypt to Receive F-16s: State Department refuses to delay delivery to Muslim
Brotherhood-run Egypt. The State Department has refused to cancel or delay the delivery of several American-made F-16
fighter jets to Egypt, claiming that the arms deal serves America's "regional security interests," according to an official State
Department document obtained by the [Washington] Free Beacon.
Obama Refuses To Delay
Delivery Of F-16's To Muslim Brotherhood. "Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government
before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak," Fox News reported
Tuesday [1/22/2013]. The State Department maintained in a January 8 letter to Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.) that the arming of
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood serves the U.S.'s "regional security interests."
Barack Obama Wants To
"Understand" Muslim Terrorists. The Muslim Brotherhood now controls Egypt, Iraq is once again teetering on the brink of
radicalized anarchy, North Africa is a wasteland of lawless terrorist activity — all the direct result of Barack Obama's purposeful
and willing failure to protect the interests of the United States and freedom abroad.
Mohamed Morsi Is a Scandal Bigger
than Benghazi. It's no news that Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood is an extremist, anti-Semitic monstrosity. [...] Obama's
top intelligence people have been assuring us that the Brotherhood is a moderate, secular, heterogeneous organization and a prospective
American partner, for example, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper last year. Republican congressmen like Michele
Bachmann who objected to administration coddling of the Brotherhood have been vilified as extremists by the mainstream of their own
party. On the strength of a 2010 video tape long known to specialists, the establishment has suddenly discovered that this
moderate, secular organization is a nest of Jew-hating vipers.
Terror haven Somalia likely to get
taxpayer cash. It was only two years ago that then-CIA Director David Petraeus testified before Congress on the dangers
posed by Somali terrorists [...] Today the U.S. is preparing to formally recognize the Somali government, paving the way to send taxpayer
dollars to the place that will forever be associated with "Black Hawk Down," where a U.S. Army Ranger was dragged through the streets in
Disarming Americans, Arming Terrorists.
While the White House was busy drafting proposals to ban assault rifles, the last of the regulations imposed on Saudi travel to the United
States after September 11 were being taken apart. While some government officials were busy planning how to disarm Americans,
other officials were negotiating the transfer of F-16s and Abrams tanks to Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt. Obama is unwilling to trust
Americans with an AR-15, but is willing to trust a genocidal terrorist group with Abrams tanks and F-16 jets.
Obama Appoints Islam's Apologists. For an administration
that has made "diversity" a worn shibboleth for almost every other series of appointments, why this sudden departure from generating a photo-op
like a Benetton ad of Christmas past? Were there no "wise Latina women," "academically distinguished African-Americans," or "experienced
white women" available? What is it that makes these three candidates so phenomenal as to cause Obama to drop the diversity consideration?
All of these candidates are rabidly pro-Islam, pro-Arab, or both. All are apologists for those causes.
The blind sheik and our mute president.
Egypt's terror-coddling President Mohamed Morsi has repeated his arrogant demand that America free convicted 1993 World Trade Center mastermind
Omar Abdel-Rahman. I'd like to report that President Obama repeated his unequivocal rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood leader's entreaties.
But as of this writing, no such public statement or restatement yet exists.
Michele Bachmann says
Obama wants to 'lift up the Islamists' and allow Sharia law in America. Representative Michele Bachmann has claimed that Barack Obama is determined 'to
lift up the Islamists' and bow to their 'ultimate demand' of imposing Sharia law on America. [...] In an extended on-air conversation with conservative radio hosts
Jan Markell and Eric Barger, Bachmann contended that Obama was endangering the United States and Israel by supporting radical Islamists.
Obama to Troops: Don't Criticize the
Taliban. The Obama Administration has ordered changes in a new military handbook to now forbid U.S soldiers from criticizing the
Taliban. In addition, our men in uniform are forbidden to disparage pedophilia. Even further, our soldiers are instructed not to
speak of women's rights. Or homosexuality. Or criticism of Afghans at all.
Obama To Troops: Don't Insult The
Taliban. The administration blames U.S. troop rudeness for insider attacks by Afghan training partners. So it's issuing an etiquette
book ordering them not to criticize "pedophilia" and other things Islamic.
Benghazi explained, Part III. The so-called "Arab Spring" is
an initiative by Obama and his foreign policy advisers, Clinton, in her capacity of Secretary of State, and others including some of the most
powerful people in the world. International bankers, the power brokers and string pullers. It is a plan to reshape the Middle East and
North Africa, and change the geopolitical balance of power. It's not about some feel-good mission to free the oppressed. Never was.
It's about the U.S., through the CIA, using groups ideologically aligned to al Qaeda aligned to overthrow various Middle East nations to install
regimes controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.
It's Dictators All the Way Down.
Look down on Cairo, Baghdad, Benghazi or Ramallah, or any of those other exotic eastern precincts where the democracy dreamers thought the
reformation and renaissance of Islam would begin, and as far as the eye can see, it's dictators all the way down. The great spiritual,
political and cultural revivals that were supposed to neuter terrorism, end the need for drone strikes and naked scanners, for men pouring
water down on other men in secret prisons, and for all the rest of it, has never come to pass.
Walid Phares: Everybody
knows Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood. Walid Phares says that the question isn't IF Obama supports the Islamist Muslim
Brotherhood group, but WHY he supports them.
Cairo: Blood In The Streets, Obama
Silent. As the White House remains completely silent on the most recent events in Egypt — the President has not
uttered as much as a peep about the Muslim Brotherhood's thuggery against democratic protesters, raising memories of his spineless behavior
during the Iranian uprising of 2009 — violence is breaking out in the streets of Cairo.
The Brotherhood delusion.
Meet the new pharaoh, same as the old pharaoh. Except Egypt's old form of misgovernment may soon look progressive by comparison.
Collapsing Thanks To Obama Foreign Policy. The democratic "New Beginning" President Obama announced in Cairo in 2009 becomes
a new, bold Egyptian tyranny. An imperfect ally was swept away by what has generated into an Islamist perfect storm.
Rep. Gohmert: Obama Admin Has 'A Bunch of Muslim Brotherhood Members Giving Them Advice'. Gohmert told [Frank] Gaffney
that anti-Muslim investigations are necessary because President Barack Obama made "horrendous decisions" in backing the "revolutions
in Northern Africa and across the Middle East and to the Far East." He chalked such decisions up to the administration listening
closely to the advice of Muslim Brotherhood members.
Did Obama Cut a Faustian Deal
with Morsi? Is Morsi now following up on the second part of the deal by ramping up his bid for total power —
dictatorship — in Egypt? Moreover, the Obama administration and its apologists seem red-faced over the Faustian deal.
The Benghazi Slingshot. The Center for Security
Policy panelists aren't the only thinkers to question whether this administration has an affinity for sharia. In his article "Obama knew:
Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep US government from protecting Benghazi consulate?," American Spectator's Jeffrey Lord suggests that
the highest levels of the Obama administration are "in some fashion simpatico with a totalitarian ideology." That "ideological soft spot" may
explain why President Obama "can't," as Rep. Dana Rohrabacher declared, "utter the words 'Muslim terror attack.'"
Obama Official Attends 'Symposium on Defamation
of Islam'. An Obama administration official reportedly attended a Monday meeting with Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) officials to work on
banning any speech that "associates Islam or Islamists to violence." The official was U.S. Consul General in Jeddah Anne Casper (pictured above), and the meeting
took place in Saudi Arabia.
CAIR Poll: More Than 85% of American Muslims Picked
Obama. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released the results of an informal exit poll on Friday [11/9/2012] that
shows more than 85 percent of American Muslim voters picked President Barack Obama in Tuesday's election. That number is lower than
a similar poll conducted in 2008 that showed 89 percent of American Muslims cast a ballot for Obama.
Obama Appeases Muslims, Offends Catholics.
While Obama thinks we should bend over backwards for Islamism to practice whatever 7th century idiocy it imposes, including female mutilation and
Sharia Law, which judges the testimony of a woman half as worthy as that of a man, he imposes policy that offends and curtails the ability of Catholics
to practice their religion as they see fit.
Obama's woman in Tehran. A close friend of Michelle Obama, Valerie
Jarrett is assisting the US government communicate behind the scenes with the representatives of Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei. Jarret, who
was born in the Iranian city of Shiraz, is a senior advisor to US President Barack Obama.
Israeli Paper: Obama Adviser Valerie
Jarrett Holding Secret Talks With Iran. In the final presidential debate, President Obama dismissed reports about an agreement to hold
one-on-one talks with Iranian officials after the election, but now, two weeks later, fresh claims have emerged on the eve of Tuesday's election, this
time tying senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to alleged secret talks with representatives of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The Obama Doctrine: American
Lives Are Expendable. The denial of air support to our troops in battle is normal operating procedure for this commander
in chief. He doesn't have to give special orders to do it. It is the Obama Doctrine on the War on Terror: do not
kill Muslim civilians. Let American soldiers die instead. That is how Obama thinks he will win the hearts and minds of
the Islamic world.
Benghazi Reveals Obama-Islamist Alliance.
The nature of the Benghazi disaster is now clear. Ambassador Stevens was engaged in smuggling sizable quantities of Libyan arms from
the destroyed Gaddafi regime to the Syrian rebels, to help overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. Smuggling arms to the so-called "Free
Syrian Army" is itself a huge gamble, but Obama has been a gambler with human lives over the last four years, as shown by the tens of
thousands of Arabs who have died in the so-called Arab Spring — which has brought nothing but disaster to the Arab world.
about the Benghazi attack.
The consequences of Obama's love of Islam.
The claim that Obama is a Christian was a silly joke, but a necessary lie for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of socialists
and Islamists. Obama became the one, the savior of both Islam and socialists. For that Obama had to deny who he really was.
That is why Obama's actions and words never added up.
Why Our Forces Were Told to 'Stand
Down' in Benghazi. What went wrong in Benghazi is the same thing that went wrong in Afghanistan. It is the same thing
that went wrong on the original September 11. It is the same thing that has gone wrong throughout the War on Terror. If we
are to learn any lesson from what happened in Benghazi, it should be that American lives come before Muslim diplomacy and that any government
which does not put American lives first, which does not take whatever measures are necessary to save their lives, regardless of what Muslims
may think, is not an American government, but a post-American government.
The collapse of the
Obama strategy against radical Islamists. The real meaning of the violence of the last week across the Muslim world is
the bankruptcy and collapse of the Obama strategy which began with his speech in Cairo. [...] While reaching out to "mainstream
Muslims," the Obama strategy would wage selective war against designated enemies. The Obama administration decided to ignore
concerns of sovereignty and to kill terrorists with stepped up drone attacks. It apparently did not occur to the Obama team
that the enemy could and would react.
Spontaneous as a Symphony.
According to the Obama administration, its policies in the Middle East are working. The Cairo speech, the tougher line with
Israel, the withdrawals from Iraq and pending drawdown in Afghanistan, Obama's coolness to Iran's failed Green Revolution: These
have all been part of the successful effort to repair the damage done by the previous administration. Yet all of that hard work
can go up in smoke if some crackpot says something mean about the prophet Mohammed on YouTube? Progress that flimsy strikes me
as no progress at all.
Reconsidering Michele Bachmann.
The overthrow of Moammar Gaddafi has turned out to be a terrible blunder. It has empowered radical Muslims, led directly to the Benghazi
debacle, and scattered Gaddafi's armory among terrorist elements, including al Qaeda. There has been, of course, no accountability for the
Libya decision, either with respect to the Obama administration or others outside the administration who supported Obama's policy.
Obama Tried to Establish Ties with the
Mullahs. For all those bewildered about why Barack Obama made no attempt to reach out to the democracy demonstrators dying in the streets
of Tehran (shades of Benghazigate), it seems our president had his eyes set on a bigger prize — diplomatic relations with Iran's Islamofascist
Obama extends Eid greetings to Muslim
community. A statement issued by the White House read, "Michelle and I extend our best wishes for a joyful Eidul Azha to
Muslims in the United States and around the world." "We also congratulate the millions of peaceful pilgrims who are performing the
Hajj, including thousands of American Muslims," it added.
Radical Extremists Visiting The
White House? Steve Emerson and John Rossomondo have studied White House visitor logs, and compared them to lists of known radical
A Red Carpet for Radicals at the White House.
A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to
the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials. Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as
belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations. The IPT made the discovery
combing through millions of White House visitor log entries.
Americans Should Stop
Being Surprised by Terrorism. Criminals and killers are not morally or psychologically strong. They only
act when they see evidence that their intended victims are weak. As with purse-snatchers and serial killers, so too with
Islamic fundamentalists who kill American diplomats. For years, especially since the Obama Administration but also before
Obama came to office, America has done nothing but apologize for itself: Both in word and action, time and again.
Meet Obama's Wahhabist Relatives.
After President Obama was inaugurated, the Muslim side of the Obama family in Kenya boomed, and it went from rags to riches overnight. They
became one of the most influential families in western Kenya and even extended their sphere of influence to Saudi Arabia. When Sarah, president
Obama's grandmother, decided to go to the Hajj, an obligatory pilgrimage to Mecca with Musa, president Obama's first cousin, they were welcomed with
open arms and were provided a special escort with full security detail and first-class treatment at the Saudi royal court.
Obama's Islamic Supremacist Human Rights Rep.
It would be inconceivable for Barack Obama to appoint a man who had praised the Ku Klux Klan to a commission discussing race relations; what he has
actually done, however, is all too predictable. Obama has appointed a man who has praised Hamas and Hizballah, and blamed Israel for 9/11, to be
the United States' representative at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human
Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).
Shut Up or Die, the
Muslim Protesters Explained. [Scroll down] The immediate question is how far this administration will go
to limit free speech. With the arrest last weekend of "Innocence of Muslims" filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the government
took a step toward official intimidation. The administration is unquestionably on record supporting officially endorsed (as
opposed to officially imposed) self-censorship: the highest levels of government are proclaiming, "The United States deplores
any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others," as the secretary of state said, or that "the United States rejects
efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others," as the president did. No other group in American society benefits
from the deference and kid-gloves treatment that this administration is extending to Muslim extremists.
Barack Obama: President and Protector
of Islam's Prophet. During his remarks on his country's role in international relations, Obama, in the midst of his comments otherwise
within the mainstream of American discussions, proclaimed that the "future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." This
single phrase entails deeply disturbing implications for the defense of free speech critical of Islam against multiplying threats from various adherents
of this faith. This statement also introduces intellectual confusion into the rest of Obama's remarks extolling individual freedom while condemning
bigotry and insults. This philosophical quagmire ultimately is resolvable only through reflection upon Obama's presumed future troubling policy
Religious Visas Put Lie To
Obama's Suggestion Muslims More Tolerant. Referring to the Muhammad video during his U.N. speech this week, Obama lectured Americans about
"intolerance" toward Islam. "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," he said. "It is time to heed the words
of Gandhi: 'Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.'" He actually believes Muslims
have heeded those words. "Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance," he intoned during his 2009 Cairo speech. "Throughout history, Islam has
demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality." Obama must have learned his history at that
Jakarta madrassa he attended.
Obama Rebuilds Mosques While Churches
Burn. While Christian churches are being destroyed on a near daily basis in Muslim countries throughout the world, the Obama
administration is investing millions of dollars to rebuild overseas Islamic mosques and minarets. According to the State Department,
the mosque restoration program, first reported on back in 2010, is a "cultural preservation" project designed to "fight Islamic extremism
by building relationships with Islamic leaders."
MSM Tipping Point On Obama in the Middle
East? The anti-American riots that have been rocking the Muslim world since 9/11 have shaken the establishment out of its complacency.
Increasingly, even those who sympathize with the basic elements of the administration's Middle East policy are connecting the dots. What they are
seeing isn't pretty.
Star General: Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated Our Government. U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William Jerry Boykin claims that
individuals with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood hold security clearances in both the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.
Obama still wants to fundamentally
transform America. An American compound in Libya is invaded by al Qaeda terrorists and an American ambassador is purportedly tortured
before being killed. Muslim mobs attack American embassies in 27 countries chanting,"Death to America." The White House response?
A statement blaming the outrages on a filmmaker in the United States, along with apologies to the Muslim world.
Obama and Ahmadinejad singing from the same choir book. Both
Obama and Ahmadinejad make political careers out of marketing an image of America the Bully, an America that must pay. The biggest news
ignored by the mainstream media is that the UN, the Muslim Brotherhood and the socialists are now working in concert to deliver One World
Government on a largely suspecting [sic] global population. The only difference between the American president and the Iranian one is that
the one who hails from the Mid-East is front and centre about what he wants.
explains Obama's response to the Arab Spring. This critical look by the New York Times at President Obama's responses to the
"Arab Spring" is very much worth reading. It describes the "hard lesson the president ha[s] learned over almost two years of
political turmoil in the Arab world" as follows: "bold words and support for democratic aspirations are not enough to engender
good will in this region, especially not when hampered by America's own national security interests."
Islamists are taking full advantage
of our failure to grasp their intent. Obama genuinely seems to believe that he, his administration, our present foreign
policy, and America 2012 are somehow not the real objects of hate of the Arab Street mobs. That disconnect was also the theme of his
mythmaking in Cairo, of his al-Arabiya interview, and of his apologetic commentary to the French and the Turks: A pre-Obama America
was hubristic, insensitive, and culpable for damaged bilateral relations and would be acknowledged as such by an Obama America.
You Broke the Mideast, Mr.
President, Now You Own It. With the Middle East now more hostile to U.S. interests than ever, the "Arab Spring" has become a major political
liability for the president. Try as he may, he can't distance himself from it.
Obama and the Muslim day of love.
The results are in: Friday's [9/21/2012] "Day of Love" in Pakistan ended with 20 dead and hundreds wounded from anti-American rioting.
How Obama torched our standing in the Arab world:
The reality, which the media shrinks from telling, is that during the past three years regard for our country has dropped precipitously around the world —
and it has nothing to do with an anti-Muslim film. The Pew organization tells us that the number of people in Muslim countries who hold favorable views towards
the US stood at 15% in June — down from 25% when President Obama took office.
Releasing the Blind Sheikh? The
Obama administration may give a get-out-of-jail-free card to an Islamic terrorist whose group helped to ignite a wave of deadly
attacks last week against U.S. diplomatic missions in the Middle East. The U.S. Department of State "is actively considering
negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as 'the Blind Sheikh,' for
humanitarian and health reasons," The Blaze news website reported, citing a confidential source close to the Obama administration.
Obama coddles Twin Towers bomber.
The Obama administration is reportedly in talks with Egypt's government to transfer convicted terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman back to his home country.
This would be a major foreign-policy blunder and an insult to the counterterrorism professionals who put the terror leader behind bars. Rahman,
known as the "Blind Sheikh," was the leader of the terrorist group Al-Gama'a al-Islamiya, which conducted a series of attacks in Egypt in the early
1990s. Rahman was in exile in New York at the time, preaching at mosques, fundraising, building a radical following and conspiring to create
mayhem in America. Rahman and nine of his acolytes were arrested after the February 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In 1996, he was
sentenced to life in prison for his part in the plot.
Mrs. Clinton, Mr.
Obama, it's time to wake up and smell the global jihad. There are people in this world — and not a small number of
them — who share the vision bin Laden had and have the will and means to act. No amount of apologizing for America, embracing
our adversaries or mistreating our allies will change that. It is worth recalling that Cairo, the city where a mob entered the US embassy
compound and burned an American flag, was the epicenter of what critics call Obama's "apology tour."
Military Leaders Warned Sen. Obama 'Doesn't Understand Threat of Radical Islam'. In February 2008, military leaders
reacted to Senator Obama's presidential campaign, warning that he did not understand the threat of radical Islam or the larger
picture of national security. [...] With smoke rising around US embassies throughout the Middle East, the warnings of these military
minds ring prophetic.
Middle East a Tinderbox,
American Leadership Absent. The winds of war are blowing stronger in the Middle East, all because President Obama
refuses to realize the threat posed by radicals in Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East.
Obama Destabilized the Middle
East on Purpose. The same debate we've seen over Obama's destruction of the American economy has already begun over
his Middle East policy. Did Obama hand Egypt over to jihadis, and is he giving a green light to nuclear Iran, because of
incompetence or his leftist ideology?
For Barack Obama, Muslims can do no
wrong. As he belittles and lectures the Israeli government, vilifies the Catholic church and other Christian organizations
as "anti-woman" for seeking religious freedom in the kind of insurance they offer, and as his party (apparently with his knowledge)
removes God from their platform, this president believes it his Constitutional obligation to varnish the image of Islam. What's
more, he apparently considers it his duty to ignore offenses committed in the name of Islam against Christians and Jews around the world,
and to apologize to Muslims as they storm our embassy for their "hurt feelings."
because he's one of them
and not one of us.
Obama submits to Brotherhood,
asks for suppression of anti-Islam video. President Barack Obama has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhood's demand that the federal
government suppress a satirical video of Islam's prophet, Muhammad. [...] Obama's request complied with the Sept. 13 demand and threat by the
brotherhood, which now governs the Arab world's largest country, Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood in the
Obama Administration. If anyone needed evidence that Hillary Clinton is in the pocket of the Muslim Brotherhood, the events of
the last few days should be more than sufficient. On the anniversary of 9/11, on what should be a day of shame for the Muslim world, the
US Embassy in Cairo issued a statement condemning critics of Islamofascism in language appropriate to the office of propaganda for the Muslim
Brotherhood. Islamofascists launched violent attacks on Americans, repeating the outrages in miniature of the World Trade Center attacks
11 years ago. In the face of these outrages the posture of the U.S. government is one that would make Neville Chamberlain blush.
In four years Barack Obama has managed to turn the entire Middle East over to America's enemies.
Yes we are 'impotent,' Ambassador Rice.
The more you run away and try and hide, the less the Arab street believes you. Therefore, why not try something novel and exciting?
Defend our Freedom of Speech — without equivocation and without hesitation. [...] We don't have a problem. The perpetually
outraged Muslims do. How refreshing would it be to hear an Obama administration flunkie say that?
Obama's protective press cordon.
Protecting and defending President Obama through his failures and blunders and gaffes is a full-time job for America's mainstream press
corps — and they're getting worried. [...] Muslims across the world are burning effigies of Mr. Obama — the Nobel Peace
Prize winner with the "secret kill lists." Missing in all the Q&A from America's top reporters was this simple fact: An American
ambassador was killed — on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
1.5 Billion Bin Ladens. At the heart of
events is the intention to create a Muslim caliphate stretching across the Middle East, Northern Africa, and into Southeast Asia. One
that will stretch into Europe and, presumably, America. The aim is to establish governments in which Sharia law will replace any
remnants of democracy and freedom. It is being aided and abetted by Barack Hussein Obama.
For Barack Obama, 'Defending Islam' Now Supersedes Our
Constitution. Some pictures really are worth a thousand words. The man [pictured in this article] being taken in by Los Angeles
County Sheriff's deputies for an 'interview' in the dead of night from his Cerritos, California home is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Egyptian Coptic
Christian allegedly behind the film 'The Innocence of Muslims' that the Obama Administration is seizing on as the spontaneous cause of the riots in the
Muslim World that resulted in the death of four Americans at the U.S. consulate. And never mind that even the perpetrators are denying it, and
that the coordinated attacks were obviously planned in advance.
Obama's Perverse Middle
East Policy Bears Fruit. It would not be fair to blame yesterday's disasters in Egypt and Libya entirely on Barack Obama's
failed Middle East policies. The Muslim extremists who attacked our embassy and consulate are alone responsible for their actions;
they are, as a former president memorably put it, evildoers. Nothing we say about American foreign policy excuses them to the
slightest degree. It is nevertheless true that what happened yesterday in Egypt and Libya is directly related to the perverse
policies that the Obama administration has followed for the past four years.
Obama again hits Libya
attackers, American free speech. Obama ignored criticism of his outreach to Islamist advocates in Egypt, Syria
and Libya, but did indirectly praise his foreign policy for bring "freedom and dignity" to Arabs in Libya and other countries,
and said government fighters help protect the U.S. ambassador. Instead, Obama portrayed the attack as a non-political
criminal event. "We will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers," he said, shortly before he
walked back to the Oval Office while ignoring questions from reporters.
'Those Are Acts of War,' Says
Nixon Foreign Policy Adviser. Bruce Herschensohn, a foreign policy adviser to President Richard Nixon, says the
attacks on U.S. property in Egypt and Libya are acts of war.
Catches Obama White House Flat-Footed During Egypt, Libya Attacks. Islamic mobs that stormed the U.S. Embassy
in Egypt and the U.S. consulate in Libya on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, murdering the U.S. Ambassador to
Libya, said they were doing so because they were enraged by an obscure, Internet movie that mocked Muhammed. But a
closer examination of the evidence indicates al-Qaeda orchestrated these attacks, and the movie was just a bogus excuse
used to trigger the widespread violence.
Obama on 9/11: 'We will
never be at war with Islam'. ["]Instead of turning on each other, we've resisted the temptation to give in to mistrust and suspicion.
I have always said that America is at war with al Qaeda and its affiliates — and we will never be at war with Islam or any other religion.["]
New Democratic Party Platform
Betrays Israel. Despite some introductory bromides proclaiming the "unshakable commitment" of President Obama and the
Democratic Party to Israel's security, the 2012 Democratic National Platform, titled "Moving America Forward," mirrors perfectly
President Obama's decision to turn his back on our closest ally in the Middle East. It represents a radical break with prior
Democratic Party platforms, not to mention its counterparts issued by the Republican Party, that have expressed unequivocal support
for the Jewish state.
Islam a Religion of Peace? Actions Say
Otherwise. [In a] video entitled "Obama Promoting Islam," President Barack Hussein "kill list" Obama says, "Islam is not part of the
problem in combating violent extremism; it is an important part of promoting peace." Saying "that Islam embodied a religion of peace,
fairness and tolerance," Obama then commented "that the religion was being 'distorted' by a few extremists." He made that statement in
Mumbai, India, on November 7, 2010, at St. Xavier's College. In the irony department, St. Xavier's College is a short distance from
Chhatrapati Shivaji railroad terminal, where, in November 2008, Islamic terrorists killed 173 people and injured 308 people.
20,000 Muslims Warm-Up Act for Democratic National Convention.
Will what Barack Obama calls "one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset", the Muslim call to prayer end the first day of the kickoff to the
Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, NC? According to the Charlotte DNC homepage, 'The Jumah at the 2012 DNC' will welcome
some 20,000 Muslims to Charlotte, DEM-dubbed an "official event". 'Jumah at the 2012 DNC' starts Friday afternoon, Aug. 31 jumah
prayer followed by a myriad of other as yet unidentified programs and events, but leading up to the Islam Regal Banquet.
Obama's Constant BS About Thomas Jefferson and Islam.
Every year he's been in office, President Obama has hosted an "iftar dinner" to honor Islam in the White House. The President has also each time led his speech
with the outlandish nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the "first iftar dinner" in the White House. And every time it's been utter hogwash.
Obama and the Other Side of Imperialism.
Obama and the Democrats are anti-American defeatists, because they hate America when it is victorious, no matter how good that may be for world peace.
"Peace" is not the goal of the left; peace comes only after surrender. Islam does not mean "peace." It means surrender.
I don't recall Mr. Obama being this effusive about Easter or Christmas.
President Obama speaks out on Eid-al-Fitr.
[Quoting Barack H. Obama:] "On behalf of the American people, we congratulate Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world on this joyous day. Eid Mubarak."
Obama at Iftar Dinner: 'Of All Rights We Hold
Sacred, Foremost Is Freedom of Religion'. President Barack Obama — whose administration is being sued by multiple Catholic dioceses,
universities, charities and family-owned businesses for violating their First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion — told a group of
Muslims dining at the White House on Friday [8/10/2012] that freedom of religion is "foremost" among the God-given rights of man and that he intends to defend it
both within the United States and abroad.
world's Muslims in White House Iftar remarks: 'Ramadan Kareem'. [Quoting Barack H. Obama: "]This evening, we're
honored to be joined by members of our diplomatic corps, members of Congress — including Muslim American members of Congress,
Keith Ellison and Andre Carson — as well as leaders from across my administration. And to you, the millions of Muslim
Americans across our country, and to the more than one billion Muslims around the world — Ramadan Kareem.["]
Obama Administration Making
Concessions to the Taliban. As Reuters reports, the Obama administration is willing to transfer the five most dangerous
Taliban commanders in U.S. custody to Qatar before the Taliban does anything.
Killer of American troops
set to be freed, thanks to Obama. An Iraqi court has rejected a request to send a Hezbollah commander to the United States for trial.
Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Lebanese militant, has been held in Iraq for the 2007 killings of five American soldiers, four of whom were captured, tortured and shot
execution-style. [...] As Alana Goodman points out, Daqduq was in U.S. custody in Iraq and could have been transferred to Guantanamo Bay. But
despite our government's belief, set forth in the extradition request, that Daqduq is a top threat to Americans in the Middle East, President Obama
refused to send him to Gitmo.
Obama Administration Paves the Way for
Sharia Law. The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn't the economy, which is scary enough. The most
harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration's passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there
is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.
Why Are We
Handing Muslim Extremists the House Keys? Is it by chance, for example, that director of national intelligence James
Clapper, reading from prepared notes, absurdly described the Muslim Brotherhood to the House Intelligence Committee last year as
a "largely secular" organization? Is it an accident that in June the State Department issued a visa to Hani Nour Eldin of
Egypt to meet with senior White House officials?
The Terrorists Among Us, Protected by
Media & Governmental Forces. What is going on now went on in Iran and Gaza. The people had the freedom to vote for enslavement to theocracy
and Shariah law. Their freedom usually ends there. It took Patrick Poole of PJ Media to expose one Ohio terrorist — Dr. Sultan
Sallah — who was living among us, spreading terrorist ideals while he was at the same time being protected by the U.S. government and the media.
Ramadan Ding-Dong. As is customary, President Obama and
wife Michelle released their annual Ramadan greetings last Friday. Also customary for Obama, it was full of platitudes about Islam's
supposedly invaluable contribution to American culture, and devoid of any acknowledgement of the dark reality of the Arab Spring that he helped
facilitate. [...] Even if many Muslims around the world weren't respectful of Ramadan, at least American officials in Guantanamo were.
In deference to the Muslims who are vacationing — sorry, I mean incarcerated — there, they graciously postponed
any court hearings to allow the murderous 9/11 plotters their time of contemplation and joy.
Terrorist Invited To White House. Dear Leader invited a known
terrorist, Hani Nour Eldin, into the White House this past April, and this story got almost no media attention. It's another reason why Michelle
Bachmann is requesting background checks on the people inside our government who may have ties to terrorists. By law, a terrorist cannot get a
visa and come into the U.S.A., but Eldin did, and was INVITED. Why isn't the media all over this story?
The Islamist in the White House. The Muslim Brotherhood is
on the rise. The Islamist group is spreading across the Middle East. The question is whether it has infiltrated the Obama administration,
especially the State Department. Led by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, a band of House Republican conservatives is investigating the reach
of the Muslim Brotherhood. For this, they are being vilified not just by the liberal media, but by the GOP establishment. Our ruling class
refuses to confront the reality of radical Islam.
Obama's Islamophilia Week. Last week Barack Obama marked
the beginning of Ramadan by saying to Muslims that the "United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to
live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely." While he undercuts Christianity at home — under his Obamacare
abortifacient/contraceptive mandate, resistant Catholic and Protestant schools, hospitals, and charities will soon face crushing fines — he
never fails to tout Islam abroad. One would think his allies at the ACLU might cringe at his lavish tributes to global Islam as a great and
blameless religion and his "Iftar dinners" at the White House. But they don't. His undiluted enthusiasm for Islam, which amounts to a case
of Islamophilia, never triggers any of the usual separation-of-church-and-state objections and anxieties from them.
Watch sues FBI, DOJ over FOIA stonewall on secret meetings with radical Islamist groups. Judicial Watch [...] announced
today [7/23/2012] that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Obama Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation seeking access to records detailing a February 2012 meeting between FBI Director Robert Mueller and Muslim organizations.
Judicial Watch is also investigating the FBI's subsequent controversial decision to purge the agency's training curricula of material deemed
"offensive" to Muslims.
Ramadan: 'Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation'. [Quoting Barack H. Obama:] ["]The United States continues to
stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith
freely. Here in the United States, Ramadan reminds us that Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation, and that — from
public service to business, from healthcare and science to the arts — Muslim Americans help strengthen our country and
enrich our lives.["]
The Editor says...
When has Barack H. Obama ever said that Christianity "is part of the fabric of our Nation", or that Christian "Americans help
strengthen our country and enrich our lives"? In fact, he has said the opposite — that Christians bitterly
cling to their guns and religion. Barack H. Obama is most definitely a Muslim sympathizer, if not in fact a Muslim.
Islamists Taking Power Produces Moderation and Ends Terrorism! Well, now at least the debate is in the open and we can
see just how questionable are the talking points of those who claim the United States has nothing to fear from Islamists. The
New York Times publishes an article with the promising title of "Fast-Changing Arab World is Upending U.S. Assumptions," yet
sadly, the article shows that certain assumptions are not changing at all. Indeed, are not even discussed. To summarize
the article's thesis: before Obama's election, the United States thought that pro-American regimes were good and radical
Islamists were bad — but now we know better.
Time to Storm Obama and Washington D.C.?
Obama has appointed to high levels of the US government's national security members of the foundational terrorist group the
Muslim Brotherhood (Sunni Muslims) and he and his syndicate are in the process of bringing down each and every non-Sunni
Muslim regime (Obama's ostensible father and family are Sunni) in the Middle East. He started by sending leftists
(terrorists themselves) "Code Pink" (in 2008-2009), the husband and wife team of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn and Google
executive Wael Ghonim to plan, implement and assist the "revolution" and ultimate end-goal of the installation of the Muslim
Brotherhood as Egypt's ruling body. It has worked. Obama then set his sights on Libya ... another Shia Muslim
country. Result? Libya quickly was taken over by the MB.
Why So Many People Think Obama Is a Muslim.
A new Gallup poll shows that 11% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim, and the leftist media just can't figure out why anyone would get that idea. [...] Obama
has banned the word "jihad" and any discussion of Islam from State, Defense, and Justice Department vernacular and counter-terrorism materials. He is
denying that jihad is the enemy, while his Justice Department acts as the de facto legal arm for Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. And the
Obama administration has held hundreds of meetings with U.S. Hamas front groups. Obama is withholding evidence in the Fort Hood jihad that has held
up the court case of the single worst act of war on a military base in U.S. history. The Obama administration refers to the Fort Hood jihad as
King questions how terrorist group member attended White House meeting. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King
(R-N.Y.) has asked the Obama administration to explain why a member of a known terrorist group was allowed to enter the United States last
week and participate in high-level meetings at the White House and State Department.
Barack Obama must do more than manage America's decline . Ronald Reagan, in 1987, said: "Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall."
There is no equivalent message from Obama in 2012 to the Muslim people who labour under grim regimes. The effect of Mr Obama's stance is to
help prop up the nasty status quo. America's emotional energies seem to have gone more into making her enemies feel less angry than in
making her friends feel safer.
admits to 'hundreds' of meetings with jihad-linked group. President Barack Obama's deputies are holding "hundreds" of
closed-door meetings with a jihad-linked lobbying group that is widely derided by critics as a U.S. arm of the theocratic Muslim
Brotherhood. The admission of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations came from George Selim, the White House's
new director for community partnerships, which was formed in January to ensure cooperation by law enforcement and social service
agencies with Muslim identity groups in the United States.
When was the last time Obama publicly saluted any Christian as a 'man of deep faith'?
hails new Saudi Crown Prince as 'man of deep faith'. [Quoting Barack H. Obama:] ["]I had the pleasure of receiving
him at the White House this April and know that he is a man of deep faith who is committed to improving the lives of the people of Saudi
Arabia and to the security of the region.["]
Obama's Muslim Dream. There is no doubt that our President is a dedicated
Muslim. To be able to recite the Islamic call to prayer in Arabic, kneeling down in prayer in a Mosque, bowing to a Saudi King, Muslim appointees to our
Federal Government, to be a follower and lover of George Soros, and to offer amnesty to law breaking illegal aliens.
Obama's military madrassas.
America's top-line military schools are supposed to be cutting-edge centers of strategic education. But say a bad word about
Islam there, and it could end your career.
Obama embraces Islam. The Obama
administration is doing its utmost to promote the fortunes of the Islamist parties in Egypt. A State Department official
declared that with the rise of these radical groups after the Arab Spring, "people who once might have gone into al Qaeda see an
opportunity for a legitimate Islamism." They see this as a victory. The problem is, so do the terrorists.
The Realization of Osama
bin Laden's Dream. Don't let this week's anniversary of Osama bin Laden's assassination fool you. President
Barack Obama may have killed bin Laden, but no one on Earth has done more to help al-Qaeda and the world's radical Islamists
achieve their goals in the last year than our president.
The coming chaos from the Obama-Soertoro playbook.
[Scroll down] On the morning of Obama's first day in office of January 21, 2009, one of the first, if not the first phone
call he made as American leader was to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Less than five months later, on June 4, 2009,
Obama kicked off his American apology tour in a speech at Cairo University in Egypt, co-hosted by Al-Azhar University. Obama
"honored" a promise made during his presidential campaign to give a major address to Muslims from a Muslim capital during his first few
months as president. To date, Obama has not yet stepped foot in Israel, our only democratic ally in the Middle East.
Obama Helps the Muslim Brotherhood's War on
Egyptian Women. This represents a kind of doublethink that would have shocked George Orwell. It seems the Obama administration
is capable of accusing Republicans of hating women for not wanting to see the Catholic Church hand out free birth control contrary to the Church's
doctrine. While it is doing this, it is treating with a terrorist group that has as its governing platform the imposition of Sharia Law, which
would send Egyptian women into lives of degradation and oppression.
Brotherhood delegation meets with White House officials. Members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood met
with U.S. officials including White House staffers, the administration confirmed Tuesday [4/3/2012]. "Following
Egypt's revolution, we have broadened our engagement to include new and emerging political parties and actors," White
House spokesman Tommy Vietor told POLITICO.
The World According to Obama.
This president views the world from his own prism. In his mind, Muslims hate us because of George W. Bush, but a
self-proclaimed grandiose speech in Cairo will turn things around. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs wish to build
a nuclear weapon because of American aggression, but a sit-down with Barack Hussein Obama will put a quick end to that.
Bypasses Congress, Gives $1.5 Billion to Muslim Brotherhood. During a trip through Colorado in December of last year,
President Obama spoke of his intention to implement his economic policies with or without the approval of Congress. Said
Obama, "And where Congress is not willing to act, we're going to go ahead and do it ourselves." It now appears that such a
mindset applies not only to economic matters but to the distribution of foreign aid as well — in particular, foreign
military aid for the Muslim Brotherhood, who now hold the reigns in Egypt.
apologizes for Afghan slayings, still ignores Mexican 'Fast and Furious' murders. President Barack
Obama has never apologized to Mexican President Felipe Calderon for the 300 civilians murdered with weapons
the United States provided to Mexico's drug cartels, but on Sunday [3/11/2012] he found time to place a call to
Afghan president Hamid Karzai apologizing for deaths caused by an American soldier this weekend in Afghanistan.
Obama's Islamist agenda. Radical
Islam is on the march. It is being aided and abetted by the Obama administration. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham
Clinton recently warned at a conference in Tunisia that the Arab Spring is backsliding. The democratic transformation of
the Middle East and North Africa is not working out as Mrs. Clinton and President Obama had hoped. Liberal reformers are
being eclipsed by Muslim militants. Islamist parties are coming to power. Mr. Obama has no one to blame but himself.
and Change' Only for America's Enemies, Islamic Extremists. Islamism is so pervasive, so zany, so
entrenched all over the world that I could throw a dart at the globe any random day and find a story to discuss
involving extremism, violence, or oppression from its adherents. And it's getting worse. Why is it
getting worse, you ask? No doubt there are many reasons, but the one that sticks in my craw is that American
weakness is largely responsible. Weakness will always invite aggression, and this president's profound lack
of leadership — weakness — has inspired our enemies the way fuel enrages wildfire.
Was Obama's Apology
to Karzai Appropriate? What's largely missing from the reporting is the reason the U.S. military removed
and destroyed the books from its library at the United States-run Parwan Detention Facility next to the Bagram
Airfield. The most we've gotten is that handwritten "extremist messages" by prisoners were apparently found
on the pages of the Islamic books. We're told that prisoners were exchanging hidden messages within the
A Canary in the Mine.
One rare apology might in theory make things safer for Americans; lots of them in fact make things more dangerous
for our troops. In general, if you apologize gratuitously when there is no need, remorse loses its currency
in the rare cases when it might be necessary. All this saying "we are sorry" has also energized our enemies
as much as it has depressed the public at home.
"The Obama administration is totally in sync with the Muslim Brotherhood."
Obama in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood? [Scroll down] Isi Leibler takes exception to all
this and reminds everyone: ["][T]his organization [The Muslim Brotherhood] represents one of the most
fanatical and dangerous of the radical Islamist groups in the region, with a dark record of violence and
terrorism imbedded in its DNA. It is rabidly anti-Western, anti-Christian, antisemitic, committed to
imposing sharia law and a global Caliphate — and willing to employ any means to further its
objectives.["] Many would argue that Obama is also "anti-Western, anti-Christian[, and] antisemitic."
Judging by his policies, they would be right.
Obama to law enforcement: Stop linking Muslims
to Terrorism. In yet another curtsy to the politically correct orthodoxy, President Barack Obama's
White House plans to tinker with federal police curriculums for counterterrorism training classes. The first
bit of "revamping" is the removal of all material that groups, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, or
CAIR, find offensive or containing a "negative" image of Muslims.
Obama Showers Islamist Radicals With Our Money. As
America staggers toward increasingly inevitable economic collapse due to out of control government spending,
Barack Hussein Obama's farcical new budget calls for a staggering $800,000,000 of our money to be showered
upon the hostile Islamic radicals he helped take over Egypt.
$800 million in aid for "Arab Spring". The White House announced plans on Monday to help "Arab Spring"
countries swept by revolutions with more than $800 million in economic aid, while maintaining U.S. military
aid to Egypt.
it's $11 Billion for the Muslim Brotherhood? Now that America-hating Islamists control three-quarters
of Egypt's parliament and the military government has rejected American protests at the prosecution of U.S. citizens
for supporting democracy, Egypt is asking for $11 billion in Western aid. That has to be the least popular
idea to float down the Potomac in a long time. Nonetheless, the Obama administration and its supporters in the
Punditeska doubtless will ask American taxpayers to ante up a large part of the $11 billion handout, in the
interest of "promoting Egyptian democracy." Only in America do we feed the mouth that bites us.
Docs Reveal How DOJ Kowtows to Muslim Brotherhood. In what promises to be an enormous document dump,
I have received the first in a series of DOJ bundles in response to my FOIA request filed close to a year ago. ... One
thing is clear, the Muslim Brotherhood has fully infiltrated command and control at the Department of Justice civil
rights division. ... In a rational society, these Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups would be marginalized.
Instead, the DOJ is playing Stepin Fetchit for them. They're using the DOJ as their legal arm.
Intellectual Inferiority of Liberalism: [Scroll down] Obama hasn't done real Muslims any
favors with all the hoopla about a non-existent "Arab Spring." Instead, he has forged another alliance
between the atheistic left and the medieval Muslims of Iran, Turkey and the Arab world.
Obama and the Will of Allah:
Just as [Neville] Chamberlain believed that once Germany's legitimate grievances were redressed, there would be
peace, Obama seems to hold the position that once we restore the Muslim world, or Ummah, to its rightful position
in the world and show proper respect, there will be peaceful relations, and Islamism will wither away.
The Editor says...
This assumes that Obama is even more of a hapless dupe than Chamberlain, which is possible. Obama could
also be a closet Muslim gradually working toward Islam's goal of world domination.
US holds highest-level talks yet with
Brotherhood. The chief assistant to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met on Wednesday [1/11/2012]
with the head of the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, Washington's highest-level talks yet with the Islamist
group that has dominated Egypt's parliamentary elections.
Engaged to the Brotherhood. As the New York Times reported yesterday [1/3/2012], the
administration has embarked on a full-scale effort to "engage" with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
This is, to say the least, a major reversal of a decades-long American policy to treat the Islamists as a
threat to the stability of the region as well as to the U.S.-Egypt relationship.
Obama: Entangled by
Islam. It's no longer news that President Obama's vaunted outreach to Islam has been a bust.
Numerous polls over the past three years have shown that after a brief flurry of enthusiasm, regard for the
United States among the world's Muslims has declined precipitously. In some key countries, dislike for
America is even lower than it was at the end of the administration of George W. Bush, whom liberal critics
deemed culturally illiterate.
is this Barack Obama person, really? [Scroll down] But what about his policies towards
Israel and the Muslim world? An August 2010 poll showed that 18 percent of Americans believed that
Obama was a Muslim. Naturally, the media decided the notion had to be squashed, and fast. Practically
every report on the poll inserted the qualifier, "incorrectly" to make sure the masses knew this was not a
attack survivors outraged by White House guest. Survivors of a 1996 terrorist attack in Saudi
Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen are offendedthat an Iraqi official with ties to Iran's Islamic
Revolutionary Guard Corps was welcomed to the White House this week. "Outrage at the visit to the White
House really doesn't describe what I feel," said William M. Schooley, who survived the June 25, 1996,
bombing of the Khobar Towers.
Got to Do with It? Is there anything Islamic about Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps?
On what basis does Ayman al-Zawahiri, now al-Qaeda's leader, formerly the head of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, claim
to be a jihadi — an Islamic warrior? Do groups that justify terrorism on the basis of Islam have
a doctrinal leg to stand on? Let's not start by answering these questions. Let's start by agreeing
that such questions need to be asked — not suppressed. Yet right now suppression seems to be the
goal of senior officials in the Obama administration.
Obama Administration Bans
Knowledge of Islam. The Obama administration's censoring of photographs of the late Osama bin Laden, lest
they "offend" Muslims, is one thing; but what about censoring words, especially those pivotal to U.S. security?
Weeks earlier, the Daily Caller revealed that "the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used
for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some
Muslim groups have claimed are offensive."
honors Muslim holiday. President Obama is extending best wishes for Eid al-Adha, the Muslim
festival of sacrifice. In a White House statement, the president and first lady Michelle Obama also
congratulated the millions of Muslims who are performing the annual hajj pilgrimage.
The Risk of Revolution
Grows. The massive growth of Islamic extremists around the world is being fueled by a deluded foreign
policy initiative from the Obama administration. Muslims are reacting aggressively, seizing control of
every major nation in the pan-Arabian region: Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Syria,
Turkey. Nation by nation, we are facing an increasingly hostile Islamist world. Sharia law is being
pressed everywhere, even in America. It will rapidly get worse. Israel is about to become a victim of
the first nuclear world war. It will not be the last. America may soon be a target as well.
Administration Rejects Anti-Islamist Muslim. Fifteen months ago, an anti-Islamist Muslim
named Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser was nominated to join the State Department's Advisory Commission on
Public Diplomacy. As a devout Muslim who has courageously confronted the Muslim Brotherhood networks in
America, there could be no better choice. However, Jasser went through an arduous screening process
only to be unexpectedly denied by the Obama administration.
Obama's holy war.
Mr. Obama has a well-earned image problem in the faith community. According to Gallup, his approval
rating among those who attend services tracks eight points lower than among those who attend seldom or never.
Government actions justify concern that the Obama administration is seeking to tear down the wall of separation
protecting the church from the state. Earlier this year, the Justice Department intervened on behalf of a
Chicago-area school teacher who was demanding three weeks off work to take a pilgrimage to Mecca. No other
teachers had such latitude but the Obama administration argued this was religious discrimination. It's
an absurd claim that it's the province of the government to determine the appropriate amount of time a Muslim
needs to conduct a pilgrimage.
Muslim President, After All. Last month, Pew Research Center released a survey of U.S. Muslims
that was almost universally overlooked. It found that Muslims overwhelmingly approve of the way Obama
is handling his job as president. Fully three-quarters (76%) favor him, compared with just 46% of the
general public. ... And many see him as one of their own. One in 10 say they think the president is a
Muslim, while a third say they don't know or refused to answer. Nonstop pandering has also made Obama
popular in the Muslim community.
The Wages of Terror.
When Obama set off to visit the victims of Hurricane Irene, instead of visiting the American
victims who had lost their homes and possessions — he headed off to Patterson, New Jersey.
Patterson is known as 'Patterstine' for a reason, it's home to the second largest Arab community after
Dearborn, and while most of its residents are not yet Muslims, concentrating his visit there sends
a message. And it's the same message that has been sent over and over again. Muslims
In memorial speech,
Obama ignores al Qaida. President Barack Obama's speech memorializing the thousands of 9/11 terror
victims played down the identity and purpose of their attackers. ... Obama did not identify the attackers as
Islamists or al Qaida members, and did not describe their purpose, but labeled them vaguely as "hateful killers."
Muslim-leftist radical in
the White House. Barack Hussein Obama is the most successful enemy penetration
of the US Government in American history. During his lifetime, he was nurtured, mentored
and supported by radical leftist and fundamentalist Islamic elements both of which hate the
United States and seek its demise by whatever means necessary. Obama's immediate family
were close to the Communist Party or sympathetic to its aims. His mother Stanley Ann
Dunham has been described by former classmates as a "fellow traveler." His grandfather
Stanley Armour Dunham arranged Obama's mentorship by Communist Party member Frank Marshall
Davis, originally from Chicago and the former editor of the Chicago Communist paper, the Star.
Obama sends Eid wishes to world's Muslims. "As Ramadan comes to
an end, we send our best wishes for a blessed holiday to Muslim communities around the world. Eid
Mubarak," he said.
to host third Ramadan dinner. President Obama will host an Iftar dinner to celebrate Ramadan at the White
House Wednesday evening [8/10/2011]. ... By late Tuesday, White House officials wouldn't provide any names of expected
Here's a better question:
Why did he even have an Iftar dinner?
Why did the White House hide the names of 3 guests at Iftar dinner?
August 10, 2011, President Obama hosted his third annual Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan at the White
House. Neil Munro of the Daily Caller noted that the invite list was much shorter than previous
years and had been scrubbed of several "controversial" Muslim leaders who had attended in the past.
Daniel Pipes, writing at the Investigative Project, identified three Islamist attendees who were not on
the official list released by the White House but who are reported to have attended:
• Mohamed Magid, President of the Islamic Society of North America;
• Awais Sufi, Chairman of Muslim Advocates; and
• Haris Tarin, Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
Why did the White House conduct a cover-up of the attendance by these three Muslim leaders of
Islamist lobbying and advocacy groups?
Iftar dinner remarks. [Scroll down] "Like so many faiths, Islam has always been
part of our American family, and Muslim Americans have long contributed to the strength and character
of our country, in all walks of life. This has been especially true over the past 10 years."
"Islam Has Always Been Part Of Our American Family". At the Iftar dinner, a White House
sponsored Ramadan event, President Obama says "Islam has always been part of our American family."
Iftar guest list omits controversial attendees. The White House's published guest list for this
year's Ramadan Iftar dinner was much shorter than previous years' roster. It excluded the names of several
controversial advocates who have attended the event in the past, including some who The Daily Caller can
confirm did attend on Wednesday night [8/10/2011].
Sends Best Wishes To Muslims On Ramadan. As the holy month of Ramadan begins, today [8/1/2011]
President Obama and the First Lady sent their "best wishes to Muslim communities in the United States
and around the world."
For all his pandering, we have gained nothing.
world still anti-Western despite Obama. President Obama entered office promising a new dawn
in America's relations with Muslim nations. He reached out to the Muslim world, offering apologies
and a warm embrace. The theory was that, by showing more understanding of Muslim grievances, they
would respond in kind. It didn't turn out that way.
Separation of Mosque and State? As the White House and Congress debate cuts in federal
spending, millions of dollars are being funneled overseas to help build many Islamic mosques and structures.
An Atlanta television news station, WSB, reported that "the State Department is sending millions of dollars to
save mosques overseas. This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to
slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending."
Cold War-Style Effort to Root Out Civilizational Jihad. It is not exactly news that the Obama
presidency is determined to go to unprecedented lengths to mollify, appease and otherwise pander to what it
calls the "Muslim world." But the question has begun to occur: At what point do these efforts
cross the line from a misbegotten policy to one that is downright anti-American — hostile to our
values, incompatible with our vital interests and at odds with our Constitution? The evidence is
rapidly accumulating that we have reached that point.
Aiding and Abetting the
Enemy. This past week, the Obama administration informed Congress that it had approved the sale
of 125 M1A1 Abrams Tanks to the government of Egypt. The question of just who is running the government
of Egypt was apparently insignificant to the decision-makers. And this goes to the heart of the problem,
as this administration continually makes irrational and dangerous foreign policy decisions...
The Obamayyad of Barry
Hussein. [Scroll down] Israel's cabinet just had its first internationally publicized
meeting in its deep nuclear shelter in Jerusalem. That was a signal, folks. Israel never talks about
its nuclear defenses. Never. They publicized that cabinet meeting in the deep bunker last week to
signal to the world that America can no longer be trusted.
The Obamayyad of Barry
Hussein. Obama isn't just any old Democrat. Obama is historic, like Gorbachev or
Vladimir Lenin. He is a liberal demigod, an object of worship. That's why a week ago Jewish
liberals in New York paid $30,800 per person to eat rubber chicken with O. ... But when those rockets go up
from the Imam Ali missile base in Iran, tipped with miniaturized nuke warheads, the person responsible will
be Our Brave Hero, Barack Hussein Soetoro Barry Obama.
Take 2. President Obama will "reach out" yet again on Thursday [5/19/2011] to what he insists
on calling "the Muslim world." Think of it as the 2.0 version of his much-ballyhooed but
seriously deficient 2009 speech at Al-Azhar University in Cairo.
Egypt Rushes Toward Sharia and War.
How hopelessly at odds with America's best interests is Barack Obama? Less than two weeks ago he declared
his support for "political and economic reform in the Middle East," warmly endorsing the "Arab Spring"
uprisings there. Then Sunday, Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Hazem Abu Ismail announced his candidacy for the
presidency of Egypt, promising to transform Egypt into an Islamic state and go to war with Israel.
Obama vs. Israel. Is Obama a
Muslim? Does Obama hate Israel? ... Watching President Barack Hussein Obama try to pick winners and losers in
the Middle East would be amusing if it were not so deadly serious. Not a word about Syria's slaughter of
its protestors. A demand that Libya's Gadhafi step aside and a quick retreat behind NATO's skirts.
Throwing Egypt's Mubarack under the bus when saying nothing would have sufficed. And then there was the
infamous and inauspicious start to his presidency with the "World Apology Tour" that included a stop in Cairo.
Freedom or Islam?
President Obama is trying to hit the reset button on his outreach efforts to the world's Muslims. He would
do better to focus on aggressively promoting freedom rather than pandering to Islam. The first round of
outreach — kicked off by Mr. Obama's June 2009 speech in Cairo — was a spectacular
failure. Opinion polling on sentiment towards the United States in countries with Muslim majorities
showed an initial burst of enthusiasm, followed in 2010 by a collapse. In some cases, Muslim approval
of America fell to levels lower than during the waning days of the George W. Bush administration.
The Danger in Severing
God from America's Identity. [Scroll down] Our leader, too, works feverishly to sever the
relationship between God and America, and to downplay the latter's reliance on the former. Consider that
Barack Obama has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to describe that "we are no longer a Christian
nation." Or consider that he has wished goodwill to Muslims around the world on the uniquely Islamic
holidays of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha, but failed this past weekend to offer the same
courtesy to American Christians to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
'In the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious
obligation," President Obama claimed during his 2009 Cairo speech. "That is why I am committed to
working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat." This statement contained
two falsehoods. One, as I've previously detailed, was obvious: There are, in fact, no American
laws or rules that make it harder for Muslims to give to charity. What we have are laws against material
support of terrorism — against using devices like charitable fronts to channel money to jihadists.
Islamists a Walk. When the first line of defense is "Bush did it, too," you can rest assured that
there is no second line of defense. And on allegations that the Justice Department intervened to prevent the
indictment of various Islamist figures and organizations, the Obama administration's response appears to be:
Bush did it, too.
It's OK for the U.S. Govt. to Burn Bibles But Condemn Burning the Koran: The U.S. government
under Barack Obama is deeply committed to battling any belittlement, criticism, or questioning of Islam.
At the same time, however, it is OK, in the Obama regime, for the U.S. government to burn Bibles. Yes,
that's right. Bibles were sent to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. But the U.S. government determined
that the presence of Bibles in this "devoutly Muslim country" might inflame the natives. So they
burned them. Why did they burn them? Because it is military policy to burn its trash.
Al-Jazeera's Sponsor is a
Guest at the Oval Office. President Obama on Thursday [4/14/2011] hosted Emir Hamad bin Khalifa
al-Thani of Qatar, otherwise known as the Boss of Al-Jazeera, for a meeting in the Oval Office. Obama
called him "Your Highness" and "His Highness," even though the Emir dropped his robes of royalty for a business
suit. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani financially sponsors Al-Jazeera and its most famous personality,
anti-American and anti-Semitic cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has just returned to Egypt from Qatar to
supervise the transformation of that one-time U.S. ally into an Islamic state.
Al-Jazeera has fans in Obama W.H.
In the halls of American power, the Arab Spring has brought Al-Jazeera in from the cold. Seven years
after then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called the broadcaster's reporting "vicious, inaccurate and
inexcusable" and President George W. Bush joked about bombing it, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
praised it as "real news" in her recent Senate testimony.
and Holder Scuttle Terror Finance Prosecutions? A number of leaders of Islamic organizations
(all of whom publicly opposed the King hearings on Muslim radicalization) were about to be indicted on terror
finance support charges by the U.S. attorney's office in Dallas, which had been investigating the case for most
of the past decade. But those indictments were scuttled last year at the direction of top-level political
appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — and possibly even the White House.
Obama Empire Strikes Back on My PJM
'Holdergate' Reporting. [Scroll down] But now we're starting to get wind of the Obama
administration's response. Fearful that this could easily turn into "Holdergate," the administration
is trying to spin its way out of this potential morass by returning to an old standard: WE BLAME BUSH!!
That's right. The excuse they are currently floating to their friends in the establishment media to
explain the decision not to prosecute CAIR officials and the other Islamic leaders implicated in the Holy
Land Foundation case (all of whom had been named unindicted co-conspirators) is that the Bush administration
chose not to prosecute them in 2004 and they were just reaffirming what John Ashcroft had decided way back
Source: Gov't Muslim 'Outreach' Jeopardized Active Terror Investigations. On the heels of last week's
article by Patrick Poole, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has sent a letter to Eric Holder this morning [4/15/2011] demanding
answers as to why the Department of Justice decided not to prosecute CAIR, its co-founder Omar Ahmad, and others
regarding the Holy Land Foundation case.
Did DOJ Drop Muslim Brotherhood Prosecutions? Muslim Brotherhood front groups — like
CAIR, ISNA, NAIT and others — will now have a new reason to hate Peter King. Today, the
House Homeland Security Committee chairman is demanding to know why Eric Holder's Justice Department
decided not to go after the numerous unindicted coconspirators named in the largest terrorist financing
trial in American history, US v Holy Land Foundation.

naturally. At least that's the thinking of this administration. It's now official foreign
Obama's Fort Hood
Jihadist: We have been hearing for years that the White House is withholding evidence on the
Fort Hood jihadi, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. Now comes direct confirmation of this from Hasan's own lawyer.
Major Hasan, also known as Soldier of Allah, according to his business card, mowed down thirteen U.S. soldiers
while screaming Allahu akbar on the Fort Hood military base in Texas a year and a half ago, in November 2009.
Yet his trial keeps on being postponed. On March 30, Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the outgoing commanding
general at Fort Hood, granted a request from John Galligan, Hasan's lawyer, to delay the trial until late
April. Galligan, however, disclaims responsibility for all the delays, blaming them on none other
than Barack Hussein Obama.
Shariah. Like ordinary folks, presidents of the United States are known by the company they
keep. It is a test of their character. Often it shapes their policies. And, in the case of
Barack Obama, it may blight his legacy and our nation's security interests. ... At the moment, though, we must
be concerned not only with who Barack Obama considers his friends, but with those who deem him to be one of
theirs: The record suggests he must be seen as a "Friend of Shariah."
7 Ways The Obama Administration Is Helping To
Advance The Islamists' Agenda: Islamic law (sharia) contradicts the notion that all human beings
are entitled to be treated with equal dignity and have inalienable rights. Islamic law separates believers
from nonbelievers, sanctioning inferior status, if not outright death, for the latter. In this worldview,
religious tolerance is a one-way street. Women in Islam are degraded to submissiveness under misogynist
laws. Children are taught to hate. Critical thought that questions official Islamic doctrines is
regarded as the crime of defamation of Islam, punishable by death. The Obama administration has joined the
chorus of apologists and "makeover artists" who insist that only extremist fundamentalists practice Islam this
way, and that they are no different from fundamentalists of every religion. Genuine Islam is gentle and
peaceful, they say.
Anti-American. Well, you have to hand it to Obama, he is consistent in his extreme
anti-Americanism. ... Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. He specifically invited
Brotherhood representatives to attend his speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 2009, and during the
uprising against Mubarak signaled that he would have no problem with their having a place in Egypt's new
government. He has backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. He backed the brutal
mullahcracy in Iran during the Iranian people's bloody march for freedom. He has backed Hezb'Allah in
Lebanon. He has backed Islamic law at the UN, having the U.S. co-sponsor with Egypt in summer 2009 a
resolution on the restriction of free speech regarding Islam. And now he is essentially backing
Al-Qaeda in Libya.
CAIR applauded by White House. White House officials have applauded advocacy efforts by the Council
on American-Islamic Relations, even though top FBI managers refuse to meet its leaders, the council has been
judged by courts to have been associated with the Islamic terror group Hamas, and several of its employees
and members have been jailed or expelled for jihadi-related terrorist offenses since 2001. CAIR was
publicly applauded at a Mar. 10 White House event by Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor and assistant to
Schizoid Foreign Policy. Terrorism of the home-grown kind is now a "grave" concern, and that is
why we do not use the offensive terms "Islamist" or "jihad," and have evolved to nomenclature like "overseas
contingency operations" for "war on terror" and "man-caused disasters" for "terrorism" — although one
may doubt that any serious American security official has ever phoned his European counterpart to discuss joint
"overseas contingency operations" against "man-caused disasters." When jihadists strike, they do so "allegedly"
until formally convicted, and the resulting American uproar and threats to diversity programs can be as serious a
concern as the actual terrorist operation. Formerly one-dimensional agencies like NASA now have new expanded
missions, namely, reaching out to the Muslim world.
Obama and Islam: No president in American
history has taken a more admiring view of Islam than Barack Obama. Whether it is his repeated insistence that the
attacks on Americans and the war that has been declared against the West have nothing do with Islam, or his flattering (and
false) description of Islam as a religion "that teaches peace, justice, fairness and tolerance," or his unprecedented revelation
that he considers it "part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of
Islam wherever they appear," Obama in his first two years of office has spurned no opportunity to speak well of the religion.
Obama's state of
Islamic denial. U.S. troops are gunned down by a shooter who screams "Allahu akbar!" before
opening fire. Official statements are rushed out: The perpetrator was a lone wolf; his motive
was unclear; there are no links to terrorism. Sound familiar? It should, because when Islam is
the cause of American tragedy, President Obama hides his head in the sand.
official urges cable companies to carry Al-Jazeera. Al Jazeera is filled with anti-American
propaganda. It is also awash in anti-Semitism. The material broadcast stokes terror and violence.
Why would the person who Barack Obama appointed to be the Assistant Secretary at the Department of Homeland
Security, Juliette Kayyem, advocate American cable companies carry the channel — a channel that cannot
help but inflame tensions and anger and one that is not known for unbiased accuracy.
Ja-Jeer-America. Imagine a Cold War president relying on Pravda for news. Or CNN and
ABC vets rushing to work for the propaganda organ. Insane, right? So why are they swooning over
Christianity? President Obama's coddling of Islam has many Americans questioning his
national-security judgment, if not his intentions. In his administration's muddled response to the
crisis in Egypt, one clear message came from all the president's men: A new government in Cairo "has to
include a whole host of important nonsecular actors," as stated by White House spokesman Robert L.
Gibbs. The hitch is that in the Middle East, nonsecular means radical Islamist, like the Muslim
A Movement Of Brotherly
Hate. If the Muslim Brotherhood had a slogan, it might be "Today Egypt, tomorrow the world."
Yet the Obama administration is intent on seeing this global jihadist group in a good light.
The Obama Administration Stand With the Muslim Brotherhood? If the Obama Administration wants
Egypt to have a more representative form of government it is difficult to comprehend how it will be
facilitated with the inclusion of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Ties.
Barack Obama has declared that all opposition groups should have representation in the next Egyptian
government, which essentially ensures that the Muslim Brotherhood will be part of that government.
The Brotherhood is the largest opposition group in Egypt, so it will probably end up in the driver's seat in
any new regime, and steer Egypt toward becoming an Islamic state inveterately hostile to the United States.
So why isn't Obama working to limit the Brotherhood's scope and influence? Maybe because he doesn't
really have a problem with the Brotherhood, despite its hostility to America.
Where's Obama's CIA
Director? Rather than being in the dark about what is happening in Egypt, the CIA may be on the
side of radical forces in the country and the region.
The Muslim Brotherhood. Of course, the Muslim Brotherhood is no stranger to President Obama.
During his infamous speech in Cairo, he insisted that Mubarak allow Muslim Brotherhood members to attend.
And if the Telegraph is to be believed, the Obama Administration actually has encouraged anti-government forces
covertly for quite some time.
Obama Well Knows
What Chaos He Has Unleashed. [Scroll down] My fear is that Obama is not naïve at
all, but he instead knows only too well what he is doing, for he is eagerly promoting Islamic power in the
world while diminishing the West and Israel, however much innocent blood will flow as a result.
Inevitably, sooner or later, the Muslim Brotherhood will take power, usher in a barbaric Islamist power in
Egypt that will control the Suez Canal, and show no mercy to its own people or its perceived foes.
Napolitano and Muslim Brotherhood affiliates
met secretly. Last year, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet and her senior staff secretly
met with a select group of Muslim, Arab, and Sikh organizations. Among the mix were three organizations
directly associated with an outlawed terrorist entity — the Muslim Brotherhood, who are involved
in the current uprising in Egypt.
Muslim Brotherhood's Penetration of the Obama Administration. The first thing we need to
realize is that the Muslim Brotherhood operates in the United States under a variety of names and
organizational umbrellas. Technically, there is no "Muslim Brotherhood" in the United States.
But the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others are — according to a document captured in a raid and
released by law enforcement in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial) —
Obama welcomes the Muslim Brotherhood.
[Scroll down] The New York Times adds that White House staff members have "made clear that they did not rule
out engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood as part of an orderly process" of transition to a new government after
the departure of Mubarak. The Times helpfully explains that the Muslim Brotherhood "renounced violence
years ago." Funny that the Brotherood's Hamas branch (i.e., "one of the the wings of the Muslim
Brothers in Palestine") hasn't gotten the word.
Obama's Brotherhood Moment.
Barack Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt.
This should come as no surprise. Obama has behaved consistently all along, from his refusal to back the
protesters in Iran, who were demonstrating against an Islamic Republic, to his backing of these protesters in
Egypt, to whom he has just given a green light to establish a government that, given numerous historical
precedents, will likely be the precursor to an Islamic Republic.
Obama Stands by Muslim Brotherhood Endorsement.
For the first time, a U.S. government supports granting a government role to an extremist Islamic organization:
the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. On Monday [1/31/2011], White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Egypt's new
government will have to include a "whole host of important non-secular actors." Most prominent among these
is clearly the Muslim Brotherhood — which has made Islamic world domination one of its ultimate goals.
Obama and Islam.
[Page 14:] "And here in the United States," Obama continued, "Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has
always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country."
But is this true? Could Obama provide a list of the Muslim Founding Fathers, the Muslim heroes of the
American Revolution, the names of the Muslims killed fighting in the Civil War, World War I, and World
War II? And could he support his rhetoric by producing a list of those "extraordinary contributions"?
It is important for a President to speak for all American citizens in his public pronouncements, not just one
religious group — and it is also important that his efforts at "inclusiveness" not be justified
by historical fabrication.
2010: The Year of Islamist
Infiltration. While the domestic terror trend has continued unabated, elements of pre-violent,
or rather stealth, jihad are taking firm root in our government, military, judicial, and educational institutions,
without the slightest opposition from the Obama administration and our homeland security agencies. In
fact, if we've seen anything this year, it has been the willingness of government officials to lend their
support to aid this stealth jihad.
The Obama Administration Fights For Sharia
Law. Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to sue a suburban Chicago school district for
denying a Muslim middle school female teacher three weeks of unpaid leave to abandon her students and make a
pilgrimage to Mecca. The teacher wanted to perform the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia
which every adult Muslim is supposed to make at least once in a lifetime if he or she is able to do so.
Ironically, the Obama administration is suing over a practice that discriminates against women.
Enemies List. The First Amendment is in more serious jeopardy than one might have previously
imagined. Do not cave in to the TSA's "conditioning" to make your silence a measure of normalcy.
The government's intention is to inure Americans to living in a state of obedient and submissive servitude.
Of existing and acting by permission. This is as good an explanation as any of President Obama's
policy on Islam, a totalitarian ideology. He and his appointees have an affinity with it.
Nothing is being done to defeat that which inspires the enemy. Barack Obama has banned words
relating to Islam and jihad from the anti-terror lexicon. When in India, he was asked for his
opinion, his "take" on jihad, and he surrendered in his response, saying, "Islam is one of the
world's great religions."
'never will be' at war with Islam, Obama declares in Indonesia speech. With comments continuing
about President Obama's empty hands on his return Sunday from a 10-day investment of presidential time in Asia,
considerable attention has focused on his speech at the University of Indonesia. Although not everyone
in Indonesia was happy with the Democrat's visit (see photo below), the address was widely anticipated as a
kind of Cairo Address to the Muslim World 2.0.
Gov. Jindal Calls Obama's National Security
Strategy 'Dumb' and 'Dangerous'. Bobby Jindal wasted no time assessing this administration's
approach to fighting terrorism, mocking Obama's strategy as a "treatise on social justice." In part
two of his exclusive interview with Human Events, the Louisiana Governor argued that Obama's inability
to talk honestly about radical Islam stems from the President's erroneous perception of why the threat even
sends Eid greetings to Muslims worldwide. US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle extended
good wishes Monday [11/15/2010] to the world's 1.57 billion Muslims ahead of the Eid al-Adha religious holiday.
Earlier, around two million white-robed Muslims converged at Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabi as the hajj, the
world's largest annual pilgrimage, peaked at the site of the Prophet Mohammed's last sermon.
Obama Pledges Expanded Ties With Muslim
Nations. President Obama, renewing his call for better relations between the United States and
the Muslim world, used a long-awaited homecoming trip to this island nation to make a symbolic visit on
Wednesday morning [11/10/2010] to the largest mosque in southeast Asia — even as he declared that "much more
work needs to be done" to fulfill the promise he made 17 months ago in Cairo of a "new beginning."

to Islam? A few weeks ago, I referred to President Obama as a "dhimmi president," a subservient
kowtower to Islamic power. Maybe it's time to rethink that designation. He's not a dhimmi. He's
a spineless, supine, surrendering subject of submission — in other words, a dhimmi-plus. ... The
super-dhimmi isn't merely a religious drifter or an atheist; he's whatever he is with a pro-Islamist
Obama, Dhimmi President.
It's predictable enough to hear this Americans-exercising-their-rights-causes-terrorism-so-it's-their-fault message
from a terror-supporter like [Imam Feisal Abdul] Rauf, who considers it his obligation to push America into
dialogue with terrorist groups like Hamas. But from President Obama, our nation's Commander-in-Chief,
whose most important responsibility is to protect American citizens from "enemies both foreign and domestic,"
this message is disgustingly [timid].
Obama seeks peace with Islam on anniversary of 9/11 terror attacks. The US president said at a memorial
service at the Pentagon, where 184 people were killed: "As Americans, we will not and never will be
at war with Islam. It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was Al-Qaeda, a
sorry band of men which perverts religion."
Burn flags, not Korans?
On Sept. 11, 2001, radical Islamic terrorists committed the most deadly and destructive foreign attack on U.S. soil.
Nine years later, the American people are being told that the country overreacted to the whole thing.
President Obama last year declared that Sept. 11 is to be a "national day of service." Others in the
administration seem to think that means it is a day upon which Americans should rise up to protect the Koran.
Sends Best Wishes to Muslims for Eid-al-Fitr. U.S. President Barack Obama has sent best wishes to
Muslims worldwide on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. In a
statement Thursday, President Obama said the holiday is a time of self-reflection, focusing on values that
Muslims and people of all faiths share. Mr. Obama said this year's Eid is also an occasion to reflect
on the importance of religious tolerance.
Obama Gives Al Qaeda
a Pass. Please tell me this nightmare will be over soon. What kind of person in this world
would characterize ruthless, evil, filthy, and beheading sadists as "a sorry band of men?" The President
of the United States in a memorial address at the Pentagon on Saturday 9/11, that's who.
Obama still can't say who we're at war with.
Barack Obama has spent the past year doing big-time Islamoschmoozing, from his announcement of Gitmo's closure
and his investigation of Bush officials, to his bow before the Saudi king and a speech in Cairo to "the Muslim
world" with far too many rhetorical concessions and equivocations. And at the end of it the jihad sent
America a thank-you note by way of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's underwear: Hey, thanks for all the
outreach! But we're still gonna kill you.
By Any Means Possible — The American
Civil War of 2010. Obama has banned use of the words Islamic extremism, jihadist, Islamist and
Islamic terrorism, among others, from the official administration language; preferring instead to state America
is at war with radical extremists. Add to these fundamental changes in course and policy the addition of
self-described "Devout Muslims" to his administration, and one understands why a majority of America seriously
questions his motives. Marxists/Socialists, as history has shown us, will do and say anything in their
quest for power.
Obama sends greeting
on Muslim holiday. President Barack Obama is sending best wishes to Muslims worldwide as they
celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of fasting and prayer known as Ramadan.
says enemy is not Islam. President Barack Obama is appealing for religious tolerance, reminding
Americans that the "overwhelming majority" of Muslims around the world are peace-loving people.
Friend of the
Brotherhood? [Scroll down] More Americans are taking note of the accumulating series of
statements and actions by the president that display favoritism, or worse, toward Muslims. That would be
troubling enough; after all, no chief executive is supposed to support one subset of us over others.
Growing numbers of our countrymen may be on to something else about the Obama presidency, however, that is even
more alarming: In instance after instance, Mr. Obama seemingly has bent over backward to accommodate not
just Muslim-Americans, but a deeply problematic organization — the Muslim Brotherhood (or Ikhwan) —
that purports to represent their interests here.
Wouldn't Have Muslim Image Problem If He Had Joined A Church. A truly astonishing thing happened
on MSNBC Monday: three devout, liberal Obama supporters said the President is responsible for people
thinking he's a Muslim.
terror outrage. Americans are learning there's one minority group President Obama is never
afraid to offend: families of victims of Islamist terror. ... Now, last Friday [8/27/2010], we learned
that "no charges are either pending or contemplated" against one of the deadliest and most dangerous
al Qaeda operatives, Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, mastermind of the October 12, 2000, bombing of
USS Cole that killed 17 sailors and officers and wounded dozens more.
Does Obama Tell Muslims America Is Nation of 'Non-Believers'? Why has President Barack Obama on
at least two occasions told specifically Muslim audiences that America is a nation of — among
other things — "non-believers"?
Sends $6 Million to Global Muslim Sites. President Barack Obama's faith may not be clearly
identifiable, but he's willing to usurp the U.S. Constitutional principle of a strict separation of church
and state when it comes to using American taxpayer dollars to restore Muslim holy places.
Give Obama Highest Job Approval; Mormons, Lowest. Muslim Americans continue to give President
Barack Obama the highest job approval rating of any major religious group in the U.S., while Mormons give
the president the lowest ratings.
Muslims rate Obama highest. Muslims continue to rate President Obama higher than other major
religious groups in the United States, a new Gallup poll shows. From January to July, Muslims gave
Obama a 78 percent approval rating. While that's down from 83 percent in the previous six
months and 86 percent from a year before, it's still several points higher than how other religious
groups have scored him.
Obama's choice: Boy
Scouts or Islam. President Obama couldn't bring himself to observe the National Day of Prayer or
spend time with the Boy Scouts of America, but God forbid, he couldn't miss the Muslim Iftar Ramadan dinner, or
pass up a chance to praise an Islamic center a stone's throw away from Ground Zero. He later backed
down — a bit. One has to wonder exactly who is this Barack Obama?
Obama: Muslim Missionary? President Obama is not just rebooting America's image in the
Muslim world. He's deepening and expanding Islamic belief, practice and culture around the world,
like a Muslim missionary.
Muslim Missionary? (Part 4). The fact is Obama's Cairo pro-Muslim mission continues,
and proof came again just last week. On the same day the president announced to the nation from the Oval
Office that the combat mission in Iraq had ended, the Obama administration, unbeknownst to most of the country
and the world, held a special workshop for 25-30 Muslim leaders from 20 national Islamic groups (under the
leadership of the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations) to provide the groups "funding, government
assistance and resources." At a time commemorating 9/11, when recent polls show that 70 percent of
Americans are opposed to a ground zero mosque and 1 in 5 Americans believes President Obama is a
Muslim, does he really expect that we will naively tolerate and approve of the Islamic bias in his presidential
religious leadership and administration?
Islam's Achievement Gap.
As the holy month of Ramadan has gotten underway, President Obama has intensified his longstanding mission to
"remind us" of the progress and human advancement we all enjoy as a result of Islam and its practitioners. ... [But]
how many Muslims have been Nobel Prize winners for science? Just two: Ahmed Zewail in 1999 for
chemistry and Abdus Salam in 1979 for physics. For those keeping score, ... that's two prize winners
in more than a billion Muslims.
Barack Obama: Christian In Name Only
(CINO)? Consider Obama's actions since 1/20/09:
• Immediately called for shut down of GITMO.
• Called for terrorists to be tried by civilian juries, rather than military, including Miranda rights and other rights conferred on citizens.
• Once in office, rushed off to a Muslim nation to deliver a speech in which he declared that America is "not" a Christian nation.
• Changed policy toward Israel such that that nation is treated like a gang of terrorists.
• Supports, or at least does not oppose, the mosque at Ground Zero.
issues special Ramadan message. "On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I want to extend
our best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world. Ramadan Kareem."
Apologist-in-Chief. President Obama's speech on the occasion of the Ramadan dinner in the White
House presents difficulties that are becoming his trademark. Why does he find it necessary to be an apologist
for Islam? He started it in his speech in Cairo a couple of years back, which also had elements that were
downright creepy. Now he justifies the building of a mosque at Ground Zero because Muslims have the same
right to practice their religion as anyone else. This is obviously true, but a mosque in this site of
mass murder committed by Muslims is not about freedom of worship, it is a statement of supremacy and conquest.
The No-Go Mojo Man.
Nowhere is Obama's lack of metaphoric testosterone clearer than in his tack with the Ground Zero mosque
issue. Obama said that the mosque should be built because this is a simple "freedom of religion" issue,
which of course is false — the mosque can be built anywhere, just not on the secular holy site
that is Ground Zero. ... The real issue here is the one Obama did not address: the responsibility of
Islamism for the 9/11 attacks, and the association between the Muslims backing the Ground Zero mosque and
Imam Thanks Obama.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf used his taxpayer-funded Mideast tour yesterday to praise President Obama's qualified
support for the mosque near Ground Zero. "I am grateful to President Barack Obama and all those who
expressed support for our project," Abdul Rauf said at a dinner for student leaders in the Gulf state of
Bahrain, the Gulf Daily News in Bahrain reported.
about the proposed Ground Zero mosque.
More about the one-sided separation of church and state.
Two days later...
Obama's "forceful" support of Ground Zero Mosque
already changing. Doesn't the look on Obama's face in today's Drudge Report cover story, detailing
that Obama is "forcefully" approving the Ground Zero Mosque, say it all? In the caption of the Drudge photo,
Obama in effect, wishes us all "As-Salumu Alaykum" from the White House. At least he's not shouting
"Alu Akbar!" Yet.
Standing on a landmine.
Obama's stance on the Ground Zero mosque should signal to Israel that the president is so wed to his ideology
that he will push it regardless of political conditions. US President Barack Obama's warm endorsement of
the plan to build a mosque by the ruins of the World Trade Center tells Israel — and its enemies —
everything we need to know about the president of the United States of America.
Bam's latest shaky stand. Thanks for nothing, Mr. President. Now we know how Arizona feels.
First Obama stood with the president of Mexico as he bashed Americans as bigots for exercising their right of
democracy on illegal immigration. Now he stands with the developers of a mega-mosque near Ground Zero
that, outside of Mayor Bloomberg, few New Yorkers want.
Muslim envoy coming to Dearborn. President Barack Obama's adviser to the Muslim world is coming to
the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn on Sunday [8/15/2010] to discuss U.S. foreign policy at a
Ramadan dinner hosted by U.S. Rep. John Conyers. Rashad Hussain, 31, is the special envoy of the
U.S. to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a group of about 57 Muslim countries that acts as an
international public voice.
Obama Okays Victory Mosque. Americans
are aghast that the president approves of the construction of a Victory Mosque by a pro-terrorism imam six hundred
feet from Ground Zero. Revolting, yes. Shocking, no. One thing we know about Barack Obama is
that he is committed to ruling in direct opposition to three-fourths of the American people on all core issues.
America. President Obama says Islam has always been part of America, which raises the
question, does the president know something about American history that we don't? It has become
customary for presidents to offer greetings to various religious communities on the occasion of their most
holy days. ... But Mr. Obama has used the occasion of Ramadan to rewrite U.S. history and give Islam a
prominence in American annals that it has not earned.
Obama Winning the Hearts and Minds of the Arab and Muslim World? Obama's first presidential
meeting with a foreign leader was not with that of Great Britain — one of our two closest allies,
whose prime minister stood down opposition within his own party to join the effort in Iraq. Obama met
with Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Fatah party, to stress the
importance of restarting the Israeli-Palestinian "peace process" — which Obama considered
essential to moderate Arab and Muslim views.
Obama's Muslim Daddies.
The Israeli intelligence website DebkaFile has reported that Obama is now seriously considering an attack on
the Iranian nuclear facilities. His change of heart is not, according to Debka, prompted by the Israeli
Netanyahu — whose nation is most directly threatened by Iranian nukes — but by an ultimatum
from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who told Obama that his nation could not tolerate Iranian WMD, and would
develop its own if Iran was allowed to acquire them. In other words, Netanyahu's threat of a Middle Eastern
conflict that could devastate Israel and escalate to all-out nuclear war carried less weight with Obama
than the far less severe consequences threatened by the Saudis.
Obama religion adviser linked to
unindicted co-conspirator. A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to a
radical Muslim group that was an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas.
The group, the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, has an extensive relationship with the Obama
homosexual-Muslim conflict. "Human rights are gay rights," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham
Clinton said recently, "and gay rights are human rights, once and for all." That's a touchy-feely
liberal talking point, but don't tell it to the Muslims. Eventually, the Obama administration might
have to decide to which radical group it's most important to pander: homosexuals or Muslims.
There is some friction between these two Obama constituencies.
Acting U.S. Solicitor General Represented Osama Bin Laden's
Driver. Neal Katyal, who became the acting U.S. solicitor general when Elena Kagan was nominated
to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, previously served as the legal counsel of record for the man who worked as
Osama bin Laden's driver from February 1996 through November 2001. Salim Ahmed Hamdan, who underwent
training at an al Qaeda camp, was charged with transporting weapons to al Qaeda operatives.
In Search of Islam's Contributions.
Obama refuses to acknowledge that radical Islamists are prompted to violence and terrorism by their understanding
of their faith. And he fails to recognize that his blame-America-first foreign policy won't appease an
enemy committed to violent jihad and the installation of a global caliphate. Almost as bad, Obama has been
going out of his way to highlight Islam's supposed contributions — to science and technology, to
America, to the world. The main effect of Obama's Muslim ego-stroking is to call attention to just how
little Muslims have actually contributed in the modern age.
With Terrorists? According to the New York Times, prominent K Street lobbyists are
buttonholing Obama officials at a Caribou Coffee shop on Pennsylvania Avenue, raising far more than just
ethics questions. What the Times story neglects to mention is that Caribou Coffee is a Shariah-compliant
firm owned by an Islamic bank based in Bahrain. One of its founders and a current adviser are leaders in
the radical Muslim Brotherhood.
It's Still the Same Old Agitprop. [Scroll down] We have a big jihad sympathizer in the
White House, just like Obama and his buds from Chicago, just like Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan, just
like Obama's hero Malcolm X, and just like Jodie Evans and Bill Ayers whipping up crowds for Hamas.
These people are predictably on the side of medieval reactionaries who practice barbarities against women, gays,
Jews, Christians, and especially any creed that advocates tolerance and open-mindedness.
Muslim outreach: Al Jazeera was told first. Lawmakers across Capitol Hill, both Democrats
and Republicans, were surprised to learn recently that the Obama administration has made reaching out to Muslim
nations a top priority for the space agency NASA. They will probably be more surprised to learn that
administration officials told the Middle East news organization Al Jazeera about it before they told Congress.
Who needs space travel when we can spend money on Muslim appeasement instead?
Obama tasks NASA with building Muslim
self-esteem. In the video below, Charles Bolden, head of NASA, tells Al Jazeera that the
"foremost" task President Obama has given him is "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage
much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to
science, math, and engineering." Thus, NASA's primary mission is no longer to enhance American science
and engineering or to explore space, but to boost the self-esteem of "predominantly Muslim nations."
Making Carter Years look Like Paradise. The United States government and some in media seem obsessed
with appeasing anybody and anything Islamic. Only the latest example is the decree from NASA that its
"foremost" mission is to recognize and appreciate the contributions of Muslims to science.
The Right Stuff Goes
Wrong. Obama is boldly going where no president has gone before. It is a continuation of
the president's subjugation of himself (bowing to foreign leaders) and the country he is charged with leading
by obsequiously kowtowing to a people for whom advancement to the Middle Ages would be a step up. The
president and Bolden think it will improve relations with the Muslim world if we praise them for their work
in math and science many centuries ago, but what has the Muslim world done for humanity lately?
Muslim pandering 'not good for the country'.
A conservative media watchdog thinks the mainstream media has virtually ignored the NASA administrator's recent
outlandish statement that the "foremost" mission of the space agency is to improve relations with the Muslim
world. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden made that announcement on the English language version of Al Jazeera,
which Jeff Poor of the Media Research Center's Business and Media Institute believes was a questionable move
in and of itself.
Farewell to Space.
Just when you thought Barack Obama's toadying to Islam could not get any worse, now comes this: The
President directed the new administrator of NASA, retired Marine Major General Charles Bolden, as "perhaps
[his] foremost" charge to "find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage more dominantly Muslim
nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science... and math and engineering."
NASA's Mission to the Muslims.
NASA was the direct result of the Cold War scare when the Russians put Sputnik into orbit over the Earth
in October 1957, thereby demonstrating they had missiles powerful enough to launch a nuclear attack on the
nation. It galvanized the U.S. government into passing the National Defense Education Act in order to
get more young Americans to go into the fields of science and math, and it prompted the creation of the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration for the purpose of demonstrating American scientists and
engineers could create bigger and better missiles. Muslims had nothing to do with it then and nothing
to do with it now. ... Perverting and defunding NASA's mission is evidence of Obama's commitment to Islam.
Obama's "Fly Me to the
Crescent Moon" Policy. [Scroll down] We can find something else interesting in this loony
story: Where are the atheizers and arch-separationists on this one? Do they support "separation
of church and state" but go suddenly silent when the issue is "separation of mosque and state"?
The White House backpedals at full speed:
Outreach Not the Job of NASA, White House Says. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs
said Monday [7/12/2010] that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden must have misspoken when he told Al Jazeera
last month that one of his top priorities is to reach out to Muslim countries. "That was not his task
and that's not the task of NASA," Gibbs said. Bolden, though, said last month in the interview that
it was President Obama who gave him that task. He made a similar claim in February.
White House denies NASA
remark on Muslim outreach. The White House is contradicting the NASA administrator's claim
that President Barack Obama assigned him to reach out to Muslims on science matters.

[Emphasis in original.]
Obama's Proud Muslim
Moment. The last thing America needs is a president that the Muslim world "approves."
Likability and niceness are overrated; a healthy fear and respect are much to be preferred.
Jewish Distinctions and Our "Relativist-in-Chief". Mr. Obama's maddeningly obtuse approach
to Israel doesn't so much reflect anti-Semitism or even anti-Zionism as it expresses his willful blindness
to the overriding moral dimension to the conflict in the Middle East. In this, he presents a glaring
and painful contrast with his predecessor. George W. Bush made his share of errors in foreign
affairs, but he never lost sight of the irreducible difference between nation states seeking a peaceful,
stable, democratic world and those he unabashedly called "the evil-doers" — gangster regimes
and terrorist bands bent on domination and destruction.
Is the State Department Covering for a Known Terror Group? Are U.S. security agencies
hampered by President Obama's mission to reach out to Muslims? Criticizing Israel for stopping a
Gaza-bound flotilla sponsored by the IHH and the Turkish government is easy. But when terrorists
affiliated with the IHH try to get into the United States, who will stop them if no one is looking
at the organization to which they belong?
Muslim praise for Obama dries up a
year after Cairo speech. A year ago Friday, President Barack Obama stood in Cairo and vowed "a new
beginning" in a speech about how he'd change U.S. relations with the Muslim world. Egyptian vendors sold T-shirts
portraying Obama in King Tut regalia, and Muslims throughout the region thrilled at his middle name:
Cairo: One Year Later.
One year ago this month, President Obama addressed the "Muslim world" from Cairo, Egypt. Some saw that
speech as unnecessary groveling. Critics — and I am among them — think such displays
communicate weakness and only encourage those who wish to damage our economy and kill our people.
Who Gets the Benefit of the Doubt?
Despite the willful denials of the Obama administration and progressives in general, most Americans understand we
are at war with Islamic fascists determined to establish a worldwide, totalitarian, religious empire. Yet
even most conservatives insist that such people are only a miniscule segment of the Muslim community. What
if they're not? And if, as stated above, we are at war, why we are so hell-bent on giving so-called
"moderate" Muslims the benefit of the doubt?
Has a "Boot on the Throat" Of the Global Economy. It was about a year ago that Mr. Obama delivered
his famous address in Cairo, wherein he stipulated that American values and Muslim values are not in conflict with
one another, but rather, are complimentary. Since then, the U.S. has sustained three terrorist incidents on
domestic soil (the mass murders at Fort Hood Army base last November, the Christmas Day in-flight "underwear bomber"
case over the skies of Detroit, and the plot to blow up Times Square a few weeks ago), all of which entailed
adherents of one form or another of "radical Islam."
Elephant in the Room: Islamism and appeasement. In a speech in Cairo about a year ago,
President Obama sought a "new beginning" for the United States and the world's Muslims. In pursuit of
this initiative, Obama gave his first interview as president to Al-Arabiya television, apologized for America's
past behavior, bowed before Saudi royalty, sided with the Palestinians against our ally Israel, did next to
nothing to forestall Iran's development of nuclear arms, and released a National Defense Strategy last week
that ignores the connection between Islamism and terrorism.
Obama's Post-American World. A
nuclear-ready Iran is preparing for world war. Here, there, everywhere. And we have ... impotent Obama.
When the U.N. elected the oppressive Islamic regime of Iran to its Commission on Women's Rights, the U.S. did
nothing and said nothing — and our silence was affirmation. Ignoring Iran's legal mistreatment
of women and terrible human rights record is now concurrent with U.S. policy? This is no accident.
Last year, Obama had the U.S. co-sponsor with Egypt a U.N. resolution calling upon member states to criminalize
"incitement to religious hatred," which is UN-speak for restricting free speech about Islamic terrorism.
So the U.S. went on record favoring measures that would violate the 1st Amendment.
and the Politically Correct White House. Most Americans are sympathetic to public references to
Islam and to Muslims that do not offend patriotic American Muslims or affix to the Islamic religion the
rantings of al-Qaeda. But sensitivity to the need to be civil to Muslims doesn't — or
shouldn't — obviate the need for intellectual honesty when discussing or analyzing America's
Islamist political foes.
Barack Obama declares the 'War on Terror' is over. The US
president has instead replaced it with a softer approach stressing "new partnerships" and multilateral diplomacy.
"Our long-term security will not come from our ability to instill fear in other peoples but through our capacity to
speak to their hopes," Mr Obama said in a message introducing a new national security strategy.
Surrender. We've seen the enemy and it's not just the jihadists. It's also our own government,
which refuses to see this very real enemy. How can we fight and defeat what we refuse to see?
Little Headway Among Arabic-Speaking Muslims. Barack Obama entered office with high hopes of improving
the U.S. image among Muslims worldwide. He hauled out his middle name, gave his first interview as president
to Al-Arabiya television, quoted hadith, gave major speeches in Istanbul and Cairo, and talked ceaselessly of
"respect" for Muslims. Where has all this gotten him?
Obama speaks softly and
carries no stick at all. We are at war with radical Islam, and that war will go on for many
years. For me, the question is this: Will the secular Western civilization shared by America and
Europe, which allows us to enjoy life and its creature comforts, still be standing at the end of that war?
Or will radical Islam, with an aggressive culture that treasures martyrdom and death over life, prevail?
Obama Stands with
Muslims as He Promised. Though the president is taking great public pains to appear tough on
terror and the real terrorists — as opposed to the imaginary ones (i.e., conservatives and Tea
Partiers) — Barack Obama has actually gone to great lengths to make sure others like Shahzad remain
utterly undisturbed. Others who at this very minute remain undetected among us, ready to strike
on orders from radicalized Imams or terror-army chiefs, walk among us, now knowing that they have a true
friend and protector in the White House. Barack Obama has successfully purged from the national
discourse on terrorism — excuse me, "man-made disasters" — any mention of the
religion/political ideology which is the undeniable common denominator.
War of Wordcraft. The
newest tactical weapon of this administration against our terrorist enemies appears to be one constructed of
language. Its deployment began when the term "War on Terror" was replaced by "Overseas Contingency Operations,"
and terrorist attacks were renamed "man-caused disasters." More recently, as witnessed in the exchange
with Attorney General Eric Holder and Rep. Lamar Smith, it consists of a complete absence or rejection of
particular words to describe the threat if such descriptions include the term "Islam," even when combined
with the modifying adjectives "radical" or "extremist."
Praying for a Moderate Terrorist.
The Obama Administration may have abandoned the space program and the search for life on other planets, but
it is determinedly searching for moderate Islamic terrorists all across this planet. So far it has tried to
identify "Moderate Taliban" (these would be Taliban who only chop off your feet, not your head) and "Moderate
Hizbullah" (who only support bombing Ashkelon but not Haifa). It has yet to get around to trying to locate
any "Moderate Al Queda", but we have to assume that's next on their shopping list.
Chamberlain. In Barack Obama, we are witnessing the second coming, not of Christ, but of Neville
Chamberlain himself, the embodiment of appeasement. ... We have now witnessed a supposed "re-booting of America's
image" in the Muslim world as inaugurated by President Obama's much ballyhooed Cairo speech. He and the
First Lady have treated us to Muslim celebrations and declarations in the White House for Ramadan. The
president has hosted an "Entrepreneur Summit" for Muslim leaders. He has issued paeans on the inspiring
splendors of Islam, "one of the world's great religions."
Obama the appeaser.
Iran is on the march. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has once again defied the West —
and President Obama — in his quest to acquire nuclear weapons. The Persian fascist strongman
is now months away from arming his Shi'ite revolutionary regime with the means to destroy Israel and blackmail
White House official calls terrorist group "a
very interesting organization". The downward spiral toward coffee and pastries between the White
House and one of the world's bloodiest, most-notorious terrorist organizations continues. And based on a
Tuesday [5/18/2010] report in Reuters, this spiral may be tightening into an irrecoverable flat spin.
The Great Hezbollah Snipe Hunt.
John Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security, has come up with a new way to waste the
foreign-policy establishment's time — locate the so-called "moderate elements" within Hezbollah and
somehow promote them.
The heart of the Obama doctrine is the illusion that there is no war on terror. According to Mr. Obama
and the liberal elite, Islamic fascism is a figment of George W. Bush's fevered imagination — a
wild scheme concocted by militaristic neoconservatives to justify invading Iraq and imposing an American empire
in the Middle East. ... In short, the president is conveying that America no longer views radical Islam as the
enemy. Mr. Obama desperately wants everyone to get along. The Islamists, however, don't.
Daniel Pearl's decapitation means to Barack Obama. Even given Obama's ever more terrifying
and lethal performance in office, his comments about the jihadi murder of Daniel Pearl, and in front of
Daniel's bereaved family, are simply astounding. This is what Obama said: "Obviously, the loss
of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world's imagination because it reminded us of how
valuable a free press is."
Press Largely Covers Obama's Tracks on Disgraceful Daniel Pearl Remark. President Barack Obama's
statement just before he signed the Freedom of the Press Act on Monday painfully avoided reality to the point of
giving offense. If it became widely known, it would likely become very problematic.
beheading: 'It captured the world's imagination'. Speaking before Pearl's family, including the
son who hadn't been born when jihadists killed his dad, the President uttered these words: "Obviously,
the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world's imagination, because it reminded us
of how valuable a free press is." Garbage. Pearl was beheaded, yet the President uses "loss" to
characterize the result? Pearl wasn't lost. You lose sailors at sea. A thug taking a
scimitar, drawing it across the trachea, and with a sawing motion, severing Daniel's head, is hardly a
"moment" to capture the imagination.
Obama Won't Say Who Killed Daniel
Pearl. At a signing ceremony for the Freedom of Press Act, it is ironic and shameful that Obama
could not bring himself to identify the killers who beheaded the man who fearlessly reported on the jihadist
under Uncle Sam is afraid to say what he means.
Obama Ignores Islamic Violations of Religious
Freedom. Has the latest annual report from the United States Commission on International
Religious Freedom (USCIRF) caused any cognitive dissonance in Washington? ... Islam is supposed to be a
religion of peace and tolerance. Isn't that what Barack Obama has been telling us (and George Bush
before him)? The report was a bracing dose of reality to dispel this rosy view — and yet
another reminder of how Obama's view of Islam and Muslim countries is unrealistic and damaging, and of what it
might take to end the jihad against America and the West.
also Islam is not a "Religion of Peace".
Obama Appeases U.S. Muslims. The
New York Times reported Monday [4/19/2010], with no hint that it understood the implications of what it
was reporting, that Barack Obama is reaching out to Hamas-linked groups in the United States, while hamstringing
our response to the terror threat by making obfuscation of the ideology of jihad terrorists official U.S. policy.
Produces Jihadists. Monday night's arrest of Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old Pakistani-American
accused of planting a car bomb in Times Square on Saturday, will undoubtedly stoke the usual debate about how
best to keep America safe in the age of Islamic terrorism. But this should not deflect us from another,
equally pressing, question. Why do Pakistan and the Pakistani diaspora churn out such a high proportion
of the world's terrorists?
That brings another subject to mind...
Obama's College Trip
to Pakistan. [Scroll down] "I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college — I
knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee." This
last part — a college trip to Pakistan — was news to many of us who have been
following the  race closely. And it was odd that we hadn't hear about it before, given all the
talk of Pakistan during this campaign.
On Obama's 1981
Trip To Pakistan. If one was to believe the left wing media, Barack Obama's 1981 trip to Pakistan
was nothing more than an innocent visit a college friend and his family. ... Pakistan was on the banned travel
list for US Citizens at the time and all non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy
for official business. [There] would be only a few reasons a young Westerner of the Muslim faith would
travel to Pakistan in 1981:
 To Participate in Jihad, which is the duty of every "True Believer".
 For religious education in a Wahabbi sect, Saudi funded, Madrassa.
 In order to purchase drugs from the drug marketplace.
Pakistan was not a tourist stop nor the place to hang out with someone's family in 1981.
Obama's Relationship with American Muslims is a Quiet One. Monday, nearly 11 months after
addressing the Muslim world from Cairo, President Obama delivered a major speech to Muslims in this country.
But his audience was a group of entrepreneurs, investors and educators from more than 50 countries where
Muslims are a majority of the population. The speech launched a two-day summit aimed at expanding business
ties between the U.S. and the Muslim world. Obama has yet to deliver a major speech to the American Muslim
community and yet Muslim leaders in the U.S. say relations with the White House have never been better.
Why Are We Still
Bowing? Not long after President Barack Obama gave his conciliatory speeches to the Islamic
world, he chose not to meddle in the sham election of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In fact, he
offered not a word of support for the men and women who took to the streets against that totalitarian
regime. ... These days, as Christian farmers are being slaughtered by Muslim machetes in Nigeria, outrage from
the White House is difficult to find — though it made sure to instruct our Libyan ambassador to
apologize to "Colonel" Moammar Gadhafi after he offered some mildly critical comments about the dictator's
call for jihad against Switzerland (true story).
Obama's Summit On Islamic Entrepreneurship.
The White House announced that on March 5th it was convening a "Summit on Entrepreneurship" as part of
President Obama's outreach to Muslim nations. ... Were this notion not so dangerous, so ill-conceived, and so
inappropriate, it would be humorous. How ridiculous that we call our adversaries to our nation's capitol
to share with them the concepts, ideals and principles that our young citizens are defending with their lives
against some of them in Iraq and Afghanistan? This Summit is an insult to our soldiers serving in the
Middle East and to our unemployed citizens at home who are unable to find jobs.
Obama Ignores Islamic Extremist Threat.
In June 1876, U.S. Army General George Armstrong Custer was defeated by Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the
Little Big Horn. In what became known as "Custer's Last Stand," defeat was attributed primarily to a
false assumption. ... One hundred thirty-four years later, a false assumption and lack of understanding by
President Obama for a threat of a new era could well spell similar disaster — this time for an
There is great power in the non-verbal message. ... Take for instance Obama wordlessly bowing to despots and
dictators and doing so while snubbing America's greatest ally, Israel. The President even allowed the
soles of his shoes to be photographed while conversing with Bibi Netanyahu on the phone. In Muslim
culture "to have the sole of the shoe directed toward one is pretty much the equivalent of someone in our
culture giving you the finger."
Holder's Justice Department Full of Terrorist
Defenders. At the rate the Obama Administration is going, it may rival the Nixon Administration
in its cover-ups and dishonesty. The new revelation that at least nine attorneys in the Justice
Department have previously defended accused jihad terrorist follows closely after another incident
remarkably similar in broad outline: the Rashad Hussain debacle.
Who Are the
Gitmo 9? The Obama administration, and Holder's Justice Department in particular, have a knack
for making a bad thing worse. Their typical scandal pattern is: (a) make bold pronouncements
about unprecedented transparency, (b) show a little leg, and then (c) stonewall, after which (d) White
House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel assures some friendly journalist that everything would have been different if
only they'd have listened to him. The result is the the trifecta: The administration ends up looking
hypocritical, sinister, and incompetent.
Meets with Muslim Brotherhood Leaders. Although there is no evidence of an exchange of classified
information, this meeting was the beginning of an Obama administration program aimed at devising a new
information-sharing framework with the Muslim organizations — some of them regarded as
extremist because of their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
affirms confidence in Islam envoy. The White House is expressing its confidence in a White House
counsel's office attorney President Barack Obama recently named as U.S. envoy to the Islamic Conference,
Rashad Hussain, despite his concession last week that he made ill-considered statements in 2004 about
Bush-era terrorism prosecutions.
selects a voice of radical Islam. As [Washington] Examiner columnist Cal Thomas wrote
recently, Obama's selection of Rashad Hussain, his deputy associate White House counsel, as U.S. special envoy
to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, "should be of concern to Congress and the American people."
Comprising 57 member states, the OIC's charter makes clear its purpose is to "defend" and "disseminate" the
Muslim faith. Whenever human rights collide with Islam, the OIC sides with the latter.
Obama assisting in imposing Islamic Sharia law,
prohibiting criticism of Islam. Barack Hussein Obama, catering to both Muslim and globalist
agendas, is exposing his preference to Islamic and globalist agendas and placing yet another nail in America's
coffin by appointing Rashad Hussain as special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Our Islamist Envoy:
What a tangled web Islamist appointees weave. When his pro-terrorist quotes surfaced, a new White House
envoy dismissed them as someone else's. A recording says otherwise. Now Rashad Hussain, President
Obama's pick as special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, has changed his story.
Ambassador to Islam? The US shouldn't
legitimize the OIC. On February 13, President Obama announced the appointment of Rashad
Hussain, deputy associate White House counsel, as U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic
Conference (OIC). ... It was a bad precedent for Bush to set, and it is worse for Obama to continue.
Appointing an American envoy to the OIC gives that organization a legitimacy it does not deserve.
Obama's Envoy to
the Muslim World: A Soros Tie? The Washington Post published an article on [Rashad
Hussain's] ascent that charts how he came to the White House in the first place. He was recruited to the
White house counsel's office by Cassandra Butts — a classmate of Barack Obama's at Harvard Law
School. Who is Cassandra Butts? She as an alumna for the left-wing think tank Center for American
Progress (one of many staffing the Obama administration). This organization is an ideas factory for the
Obama administration and its hiring hall. It just took on Van Jones, for example. The Center for
American Progress was created and funded by George Soros.
The Missile Defense Agency logo (The one in the middle.)
Obama Missile Defense Logo Includes A Crescent. The Obama administration's determined effort to
reduce America's missile defense capabilities initially seemed to be just standard Leftist fare — of
a piece with the Democratic base's visceral hostility to the idea of protecting us against ballistic missile
threats. A just-unveiled symbolic action suggests, however, that something even more nefarious is afoot.
Missile Defense Agency logo apes Iranian space agency logo. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency,
which is part of the U.S. Department of Defense, went from using the first logo below to using a logo looking
strangely similar to the Obama 2008 campaign along with the original agency logo.
Defense Agency, Obama Campaign Logos Cause Internet Stir. Is this Logo-gate? The Internet
is abuzz with comparisons of the "strikingly similar" logos of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency and the
ubiquitous Obama 2008 campaign.
Must Choose Sides. In his speech last spring in Cairo, Mr. Obama said, "I consider it part
of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam
wherever they appear." Defending the honor of Islam and protecting Muslims is one of the goals
that Barack Obama has set for himself. It constitutes a personal definition of his presidency.
But is he doing so to the point of misleading the public in general, and at the risk of jeopardizing the
American people in particular?
Rashad Hussain's Troubling
Ties: President Obama has chosen Rashad Hussain to be his special envoy to the Organization of
the Islamic Conference, a post originally created by the Bush Administration in 2008. Hussain's past
association with Muslim Brotherhood-connected entities raises major questions about the type of outreach he
envisions for the Muslim world.
Troubling Views at Event Attended by Obama's Muslim
Envoy: The Islamic organization whose event was attended by President Obama's new envoy to the
Muslim world six years ago has a history of radical stances, and at the time of the event it was urging members
to support incarcerated Muslims including terror suspects and a convicted cop killer.
White House Attorney Involved in Media Cover-up? There is a somewhat convoluted story flying under
the radar about a White House official, Rashad Hussain, who back in 2004 allegedly spoke out in support of Sami
Al-Arian, a man accused (and subsequently convicted) of aiding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist
organization. Hussain has worked in the White House Counsel's Office since January 2009, and just last week
was appointed by the President as his Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).
A Victory for the Muslim
Brotherhood. In a controversial move, the Obama administration has decided to lift Tariq
Ramadan's ban from the United States. Who is Tariq Ramadan? By birth, he is the grandson of
Hassan al Banna — the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). By word and deed, he is
today a leading member of the European branch of the MB.
Obama's Revisionist History of Terrorism:
Since taking office, Obama's key objective on terrorism has been to transform the public perception of it from
an international military conflict, to a limited domestic criminal problem. Renaming terrorism to the
bureaucratically euphonious term, "Man Caused Disasters" was straight out of the first rule in the textbook of
organizational coverups, to phrase your sentences so that the identity of the perpetrators of the crisis remain
as vague as possible.
Obama Aids the Enemy
He Will Not Name. On December 29, and very much under the radar, (he was sunnin' and funnin' in
Hawaii at the time), Obama declassified just about everything he possibly could. All of it will help
foreign governments and Obama's Communist-Socialist associates in the U.S. This executive order is a
tsunami info-dump of newly declassified data — material that was classified before June 29,
1985. It is all about to be made public — despite the danger this poses to U.S. national
security — 180 days from the signing of the Executive Order.
Did White House "Gatecrashers"
Have Ties to Obama? While the major media have bought the official storyline about the so called White House
gatecrashers, could there be more to this scandal? The mainstream media have ignored obvious holes in the story and
important facts about the alleged gatecrashers. Not only did they pose for a previous photo with Barack Obama, one of
them, Tareq Salahi, has ties to some of the same radical Arab interests that backed Obama.
is White House Covering Up in "GateCrashers" Scandal? The White House has consistently
acted as if it has something to hide. ... As I alluded to in a previous column, the evidence indicates
that the Salahis are publicity seekers and possibly con-artists. But the verdict is still out as
to whether or not they actually "crashed" the state dinner or were waved on through by White House
officials aware of their connections to a notorious Obama friend and associate, pro-Palestinian
activist Rashid Khalidi.
Worry, Honey, It's Just Another "Isolated Extremist". [Scroll down] Obama didn't need a top
secret briefing to learn all this. If, as his aides told us, he was "monitoring" the situation before he
spoke in public, he could have picked up most of it on the Drudge Report, or merely by bothering to read the
morning papers. The chief systemic failure here is a president whose world view defaults to the idea
that there is no Islamist war on America...
Who Commands Obama? [Scroll down]
The ideology that Obama subscribes to is global socialism and communism. He takes his cues from many
different special interests who all share his Marxist ideology and desire for global socialism. Nobody
tells Obama what to do, instead they tell him what he should do to promote the ideology. His objective
is the same as the UN's objective — global socialism and the destruction of capitalism and the American
value system. And if Islam can be a part of that plan then more power to them. Islam is a useful
tool in destroying American Christian values.
gets free Haj trip from Saudi King. In the words of Steve Gilbert, "it looks like Mr. Obama's
bow to the Saudi king has paid off."
Muslim grandmother among Mecca pilgrims. Sarah Obama, US President Barack Obama's 87-year-old
Kenyan grandmother, has arrived in Mecca to perform the Muslim pilgrimage of hajj, the Saudi daily Okaz
reported Wednesday. Sarah Obama, one of her grandchildren and 10 people from her village in Kenya
made the pilgrimage at the invitation of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, the newspaper reported.
Thanksgiving eve, Obama issues special Hajj message to world's Muslims. Text of the statement
by the President on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, as provided by the White House.
Who? Perhaps the
president is too cowed by the political-correctness crowd or too personally uncomfortable to name our enemy.
Apparently our commander-in-chief can't quite get out the words "Islamic fundamentalists" or "Islamic fascists" or
"Islamic" anything. This is a very, very bad sign.
Fort Hood Speech. [Scroll down] At no point during his speech did he mutter any words that
describe the enemy we continue to face. He spoke vaguely of "twisted logic" and "extremists", but
failed to point the finger directly at Islam. If we didn't know any better, we wouldn't have a clue
who or what he was talking about.
[Scroll down] Obama has confronted the crisis with yet another serving of Hope and Change rhetoric.
We shouldn't "jump to conclusions," says O., giving no notion of what those conclusions might be. He
goes on to praise the "diversity" of the armed forces, as if the fact that Hasan the Assassin's victims
came from different backgrounds somehow makes things better.
Obama 'Reaches Out' by Naming 'Devout'
Muslims to Security Posts. [Obama's] "reaching out Muslims" speech in Cairo last June has been
followed by action, the latest being this past week's swearing-in of a Muslim rights advocate to the
Homeland Security Advisory Council, shortly after the Fort Hood massacre.
the subject. As he flew to Asia on Saturday [11/14/2009], President Obama told the media in Alaska that he
opposes a congressional investigation into the Fort Hood massacre, saying that we must "resist the temptation
to turn this tragic event into political theater."
Covering up jihad.
On Saturday, President Obama urged Congress to hold off investigating the Fort Hood massacre in order to let law
enforcement and military authorities do their work. Mr. Obama said the ongoing investigation "will look
at the motives of the alleged gunman, including his views and contacts." But if Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan
saw himself as a jihadist warrior, we may never hear about it at his trial. The defense, judge and even
prosecution may have an interest in keeping the shooter's radical worldview under wraps. Maj. Hasan will
be on trial, but jihadism will not.
Committee Postpones Fort Hood Hearing At Request of White House. The Senate Armed Services
Committee postponed its Monday briefing on the deadly Fort Hood massacre at the request of the White
House — despite calls from some lawmakers to press forward with a congressional investigation
into the shooting rampage that killed 13 and wounded 29.
Obama says don't jump to
conclusions on shooting. President Barack Obama said Friday the entire nation is grieving
for those slain at Fort Hood, and he urged people not to jump to conclusions while law enforcement officers
investigate the shootings.
Jumping to Conclusions.
"Don't jump to conclusions" is an all-purpose tautology, like "Don't panic." It's hard to argue with.
One wonders, though, exactly what conclusions he has in mind. I think it's safe to predict that
President Obama will never reach those conclusions, let alone jump to them.
can't be bothered by Islamic terrorism. In the wake of the terrorist strike on our soldiers at
Fort Hood, one individual's still missing in action: Our commander in chief. The massacre's
51 casualties, including 13 dead, were insufficient to drag President Obama away from the White
House Happy Hour. We just saw the worst terror attack on America since 9/11. And Obama couldn't
adjust his schedule to support our grieving troops.
The Editor wonders...
He "can't be bothered" by terrorism, or he is not bothered by terrorism?
about the incident at Fort Hood.
Obama's Killing Us With His Kindness — to
Others. It seems that every time Obama speaks to an Islamic group or to the entire Islamic world, he
either condemns the United States with derogatory remarks or gives away the hard earned dollars that American
taxpayers have paid into the Treasury for taxes; OR BOTH. This latest instance sees the financing of
up to 150 million dollars for Islamic "selected projects and funds." Not anything specific, just throw
a big wad of tax dollars in the direction of the Islamic World to show what a big-hearted guy he is.
Obama Adviser Loves Sharia. Dalia Mogahed,
Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs, appeared on British television last week, where she said: "Sharia is not
well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood." How have we misunderstood Islamic law? We have
associated it with "maximum criminal punishments" and "laws that... to many people seem unequal to women."
America cannot afford Obama.
Just as Jimmy Carter was no friend of the United States and crafted his economic policies to favor his European
friends, Barrack Obama prefers the Middle Eastern theocracies. He has praised Islamic Terrorists as prime
examples of humanity's best. He has ignored and even sniffed at memorials of the holocaust. While his
wife was damning the country that kept her wealthy and free, Obama was doing everything he could to ignore the
mutilation of prepubescent girls in the Sudan.
Balloon Crashes. Hundreds of thousands of Iranians endured tear gas, bullets, arrests, and torture in an
attempt to topple one of the most vicious and dangerous regimes in the world. Yet day after day, President Obama,
moral beacon to the world, dismissed and even denigrated them. He was not going to allow a bunch of democrats
to interfere with his meticulously planned overture of friendship toward the mullahs.
Day America Lost the War on Terror: On Nov. 4, 2008, America lost the war on terror.
President Barack Obama's feckless, pathetically apologetic perspective on foreign policy spells the end of the
quest for liberty in the Middle East. It spells the end of America's moral leadership in the global war
for freedom. And it spells the end of a hard-fought campaign to protect America.
no longer at war with 'terrorism'. It's official. The United States is no longer engaged in a "war on
terrorism." Neither is it fighting "jihadists" nor locked in a "global war." President Obama's top homeland
security and counterterrorism official on Thursday [8/6/2009] declared as unacceptable the terms crafted by the
George W. Bush administration.

Neither is it fighting "jihadists" or in a "global war." President Obama's top homeland security and counterterrorism
official took all three terms off the table of acceptable words inside the White House during a speech Thursday
[8/6/2009]at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.
'War' On Terror Comes to a Sudden End. President Obama yesterday [1/22/2009] eliminated the
most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects. With the stroke of his
pen, he effectively declared an end to the "war on terror," as President George W. Bush had defined it,
signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.
Among Landmines — The Obama Al-Arabiya Interview. Triangulation is a touchy art and
it takes the genius of a Dick Morris cum soulless Bill Clinton to pull off such disingenuousness. In
less experienced hands it can be explosive and turn on its user. And Obama will soon learn the dangerous
game he is playing.
Odd Islamic Outreach. In his "first message to the Muslim world" Tuesday [1/27/2009], President
Obama on Al-Arabiya TV invited the Is lamic Republic in Iran to "unclench its fist" and accept his offer of
"un conditional talks." A few hours later, after Obama had appeared on the Saudi-owned satellite-TV
channel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a crowd of militants that no talks are possible unless
the United States met a set of conditions.
What have we done to ourselves, — and
why? Many Americans have been convinced for some time that Obama is a closet Islamic. After reading
the headlines in the January 22, 2009 Fox News First 100 days of the Presidency "Obama is expected to
sign 'several' executive orders Thursday [1/22/2009], directing the CIA to close secret foreign prisons and
Guantanamo Bay, and limiting detention and interrogation methods" he has given more credence to these convictions.
He is apparently making it softer and easier for Islamic/Muslims to damage the United States.
Gives First TV Interview To Arabic Network. President Barack Obama gave his first formal
television interview as president to an Arabic cable TV network, telling Al-Arabiya that when it comes to
Middle East matters "all too often the United States starts by dictating." ... "My job to the Muslim world is
to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy," Obama said. "We sometimes make mistakes.
We have not been perfect."
Lethal olive branch.
President Barack Obama has disgraced himself and the United States. His first formal television interview as
commander in chief was not with CNN, MSNBC, ABC or Fox News — American media outlets. Instead, it was with
Al Arabiya, a Saudi-funded Arabic-language news channel. ... Call it diplomacy by self-induced delusion. Mr. Obama
may want to deny we are in a war against radical Islam, but it doesn't mean there isn't one. He may choose not to
fight it. We did that once before. The result was 3,000 dead and the worst attack ever on U.S. soil. What
price will America pay the next time we refuse to face this ugly reality?
takes over, Obama apologizes. The president chose Arab television, Al Arabiya, to give his first
sit down interview. He took the opportunity to confirm the long held Arab view that the real problem is
America and President Obama apologized on our behalf. "...America was not born as a colonial power," he
told the Arab viewing audience — implying we are now. And he regretfully confessed that "We sometimes
make mistakes. We are not perfect." Sorry, but weren't we the ones that were attacked? Do we
not stand in long lines and disrobe in airports because of them? Does anyone recall anywhere, anytime
hearing apologies from any Arab or Muslim leader?
has begun discreet talks with Iran, Syria. US President Barack Obama has already used experts
within the last few months to hold high-level but discreet talks with both Iran and Syria, organizers of the
meetings told AFP.
The Editor says...
What's this? He has been negotiating "within the last few months", but he was only sworn
in two weeks ago.
Several observers have noted in recent days that Mr. Obama's outreach to the Muslim world is not only defensive
and apologetic. It explicitly embraces a narrative that is factually erroneous and deprecating to his
own country. For example, in his Inaugural address, the president spoke of seeking "a new way forward
[with the Muslim world], based on mutual interest and mutual respect." He amplified this idea during his
first post-Inaugural interview, which was granted to a Saudi-owned network, Al Arabiya: He is determined
to "restore" the "same respect and partnership America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or
30 years ago."
Obama's charm offensive and the global jihad. [Jimmy]
Carter's failure to understand the threat posed by the Soviet Empire had costly consequences for America and
the world. Will that pattern now be repeated with Barack Obama and the threat from radical Islam?
Obama opening floodgates by inviting Hamas
to "migrate" to the U.S.A.? On his first official day in the White House, President Barack Obama
was on the horn to President Mahmoud Abbas. "The spokesman for President Abbas revealed that Mr. Obama
had told the Palestinian leader that their conversation was his first with a foreign statesman since taking
office." (TimesOnLine, Jan. 22, 2009). Some thought that first call to the leader of the
Palestinian authority was for spite. Others for statesman like reasons, still others for appeasement.
Pres. Obama Invites Hamas
Terrorists to America. By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of
$20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza. The
"presidential determination" which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle
in the United States was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on February 4.
Clinton 'to reach out to Muslim world'. "It's the biggest Muslim country in the world," said a
state department spokesman, Robert Wood, when asked why she included Indonesia on her visit to Asia. "The
secretary feels it's important to reach out." There had been speculation that Mr Obama would himself make
an early visit to the country where he lived between the ages of six and ten, and personally deliver a message
of friendliness to the Muslim world.
War on Words. In another effort to undo the
legacy of George W. Bush's presidency, the Obama administration is searching for alternatives to the
term "war on terror."
Obama may become a
disaster. There is a reason why Israel's voters are suddenly turning to the center-Right
Netanyahu and Likud. They fear that for the first time since Harry Truman, an American administration
is turning against the Jewish State. Obama's first phone call after the election was made to Mahmoud
Abbas. His first television interview was with Al Arabiya. The appointments of Samantha Power and
Susan Rice bode ill for the entire Middle East.
for Terror. Military judge Susan Crawford on Thursday dropped all charges against
Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, the mastermind of the 2000 suicide-bomb attack against USS Cole — a
cowardly act that took the lives of 17 US Navy sailors, and a clear precursor to the 9/11 terrorist
attacks. An outrage, you say? True enough. But don't blame the judge. She was
acting in full compliance with President Obama's executive order halting trials at the Guantanamo Bay
not pork, is the key. President Obama has announced policies that make it more likely that we
will be attacked, to wit, the cessation of aggressive interrogation of captured terrorists, and shutting down
the prison at Guantanamo Bay. The attack on 9/11 cost our economy a trillion dollars, and the next
attack could do the same or more. In these economic times, we should be increasing our efforts to stop
terrorism, not decreasing them and hoping terrorists will suddenly stop hating us.
Obama takes a different tone, and Muslims say
they like it. In 10 days, President Barack Obama has transformed the U.S. dialogue with the
Muslim world. His tools have been carefully chosen words of reconciliation, the decision to close
Guantanamo Bay prison and the early dispatch of a Middle East peace envoy.
You Turn Your Cheek to a Terrorist? The president told [Anderson] Cooper that "words matter in
this situation because one of the ways we're going to win this struggle is through the battle of hearts and
minds." My question is this: Are we now trying to win over the hearts and minds of terrorists?
Certainly there are issues that need to be debated in the marketplace of ideas. ... But for those who are
already indoctrinated, immersed, and otherwise in bondage to a fanatical Islamist ideology, it is foolhardy to
think that any words from anyone in the west will disabuse them of their destructive notions and deadly ambitions.
Obama Believes He Can Charm the Barbarians. America's first (half) African-American president, whose first
order of business was to reach out to the Muslim world on Al-Arabiya, has said he will actively negotiate with the Iranians,
Afghans, Pakistanis, and Saudis. I wish him well. But I also fear for him and hope he reads what I have to say.
He must understand that he will be dealing with barbarians. Like all good liberals, he may not understand what that
means. But what word other than "barbaric" describes the systematic incitement to violence that takes place in mosques
and on television and which has led to mob rampages and episodes of "wilding" against Muslim girls and women who are
group-groped, gang raped, kidnapped into sexual slavery, set on fire, buried alive, blinded by acid for daring to go to
school, work as a newscaster, a hairdresser, or for a foreign company, refuse to wear a shroud, or choose to marry someone
of their own choice.

slides into the sewer. While American Jews and many Israelis still have their heads stuck firmly
in the sand about Obama, there is huge and growing concern in more informed Israeli governmental circles that
Israel faces the most unfriendly or even hostile President that anyone can recall — and this at a
time when the drums of Iranian genocide are beating ever more loudly. Such concern has been deepened by
his decision at the weekend to 'help plan' the 'Durban 2' UN conference. This event ... is a re-run
of the UN's anti-Jew hate-fest that was held a few days before 9/11 under the grotesque misnomer of a human
Obama, the Middle East and
Islam — An Initial Assessment. Why, just two weeks into a 209-week term, assess a new American
president's record on so esoteric a subject as the Middle East and Islam? In Barack Obama's case, because of:
(1) A contradictory record: His background brims over with wild-eyed anti-Zionist radicals such as
Ali Abunimah, Rashid Khalidi, and Edward Said, with Islamists, the Nation of Islam, and the Saddam Hussein
regime ... [and] (2) The outsized role of the Middle East and Islam: His first fortnight in office
witnessed an inaugural address that mentioned them prominently, a first diplomatic telephone call to Mahmoud
Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, the appointment of two high-profile envoys, and the first interview granted
to Al-Arabiya television channel.
columnist in the White House: In the past four weeks, every single one of Obama's foreign policy initiatives
has appeased and strengthened the enemies of both Israel and the west, whose fates are umbilically linked. The driving
motif of Obama's foreign policy has been 'engagement' with the Muslim world. Ostensibly offering the hand of friendship
if that world unclenches its own fist, he is actually offering up not just the west's hand but its entire body to be
kicked into submission. And I use that last word advisedly.
'SuperTeflon' coat protects Obama. Was it really necessary for President Obama to grant his very first TV
interview not to a domestic audience, not to a foreign audience of allied or friendly countries, but to an Arabic TV
station, to assure them that America would no longer be a "bully" there? What did that mean, anyway? What
is the troop surge he said he would implement in Afghanistan if not "bullying?" Was it necessary for him to add
in that interview that many of his relatives are Moslems — even as he and his followers bristled at any
suggestion during the campaign that he had special ties to Islam?
Obama Administration Sacrifices Israel. The Obama administration's decision to join the planning of the
U.N.'s Durban II "anti-racism" conference has just taken a new twist: cover-up. On Friday, State
Department officials and a member of the American Durban II delegation claimed the United States had worked
actively to oppose efforts to brand Israel as racist in the committee drafting a Durban II declaration. The
trouble is that they didn't.
Carrots, No Sticks. Despite claims to the contrary, the use of force by the United States to
prevent the mullahs in Teheran from possessing nuclear weapons is now effectively off the table. During
the presidential campaign, President Obama assured the American people that an Iranian atomic weapon would
be "unacceptable," but unless Israel takes action, the President has entrapped himself in negotiations that
will not move these hardened jihadist revolutionaries but will only provide them enough time to enrich the
uranium they need for their first atomic weapon.
of State Hillary Clinton to pledge $900M in aid to Gaza on 1st visit to Mideast. Hillary Clinton
will carry a $900 million pledge for Gaza aid on her politically risky first trip to the Mideast as secretary
of state, U.S. officials said Monday. The money for reconstruction in the Gaza Strip will be pledged at
a donors' conference in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh next Monday.
President Obama. I know President Obama is not Muslim, but I am tempted nevertheless to think that he is,
as are most Muslims I know. In a very unscientific oral poll, ranging from family members to Muslim acquaintances,
many of us feel, just as African-Americans did for the non-black but culturally leaning African-American President Bill
Clinton, that we have our first American Muslim president in Barack Hussein Obama.
A Month of B.O. With all the
pro-Palestinians filling Obama's staff chairs, an independent observer might believe that he is considering tossing
Israel under the bus, not that there is any room left down there. If it weren't for the providential squeaker
of a victory by Bibi Netanyahu in the Israeli elections, the formerly committed Western alliance in the Middle East
would resemble a beached school of 98 pound weaklings begging to have sand kicked in our faces. And the
other guys have a lot of sand.
The Appeaser? President Obama's broad scheme for foreign policy has been something of a puzzle, short on
specifics and long on talk about forging alliances, extending hands and "engaging." In his first address to a joint
session of Congress on Tuesday evening, Obama offered a further hint — repeating the gist of the argument with
which, as one of his first acts in office, he ordered the closing of Guantanamo Bay: "Living our values doesn't
make us weaker. It makes us safer, and it makes us stronger."
Question Saudi Lobbyist for Head of National Intelligence Council. How could the President
think that assigning a key intelligence post to someone whose prejudices are so extreme that they have
convoluted history, who excuses enemies of the U.S., and who condemns its friends would be able to provide
the unvarnished, unbiased information that the nation needs for its security?
derangement: There has never been a situation like this. 'Surreal', as Daniel Pipes
expostulates, just doesn't begin to describe what America, Britain and Europe are doing in Gaza.
America has pledged $900 million for the 'rebuilding' of Gaza; at the 'donors' conference at Sharm el
Sheikh yesterday, pledges from more than 70 states including Europe and Britain swelled that total to
more than $4.4 billion.
Mullahs can't be
charmed. The new era of engagement thus appears so far to be providing the Iranians with
valuable leeway for the pursuit of their nuclear ambitions, and the Syrians with similar space to avoid
being brought to account for their own, apparently now discontinued program. In addition, the new
era is giving the spokesmen of both dictatorships plenty of opportunity for engaging in the scolding and
proclamations of moral superiority of which they are fond. It is unlikely that this is what the new
US President had in mind.
Open your eyes! With each
announcement of a new appointee to the Obama Middle East foreign policy team the tilt against Israel increases.
Samantha Powers and James Jones, both with long records of antagonism towards Israel, were followed by
lesser-known names of the same persuasion.
talk, anti-Israel walk. Barely a month into the presidency of Barack Obama, a profound
realization is spreading among the pro-Israel community: we do not have an ally in the White
House. ... So how exactly did this get by most Jewish voters during last year's election?
Obama's futile search for 'moderate
radicals'. The words we use are important, and each has its own specific meaning. So when the Obama
Administration said that it was open to dealing with "moderate Taliban," people should ask what in the world it means.
The Taliban is by definition a radical organization that is not about to give on its maximalist demand of imposing Sharia
law wherever it attains power. It is in its very essence contrary to everything we believe in as Americans.
The Myth of America's
'Tough' Iran Policy. As futile as the idea of talking to the Ayatollahs seems to sober
Americans and our allies today, we must first set the record straight on those policies of the past that Obama
is determined to change: America has never had a "tough" policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Hillary in the Middle East:
In laying out the Obama administration's Mideast strategy on her first trip to the region, Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton made clear that Washington will deal ever so warmly and gently with Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority,
while leaning on Israel to do the heavy lifting in the peace process and offering more accommodation to the PA's
needs. Because make no mistake, in putting formation of a Palestinian state at the top of her priority list,
Clinton put her chips, first and foremost, on the PA and only secondarily on Israel's security interests.
I'll forge new ties with Muslims. In phone conversations with the leaders of Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and the
Philippines on Friday [3/13/2009], US President Barack Obama discussed his commitment to forging a new relationship with
Islamic countries, among other issues. The White House said Obama discussed the importance of improving US relations
with Islamic countries with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
A group of today's appeasers sent a letter to President-elect Obama just before the Inauguration (so that it
was apparently drafted during the Gaza fighting), calling on him to negotiate with Hamas. Others, such
as the British Government, are undertaking negotiations with Hezbollah. Vice President Joe Biden wants
talks with the Taliban. The pro-Israel Washington Institute wants to tone down the language we use,
recommending we stop using phrases like "war on terror," "global insurgency," even "the Muslim world."
The president himself wants talks with Iran, as do numerous columnists, such as the New York Times's Roger
Cohen. Secretary of State Clinton has dispatched diplomats to Damascus to talk to Bashar Assad.
Mr. President: War Is Not
A 'Struggle' Or 'Situation'. First, President Obama jettisoned the admittedly empty and useless
phrase "war on terror," a label which pleased pretty much no one, primarily because it didn't specify an
enemy; it's often been pointed out that the phrase was like calling World War II a "war on blitzkrieg."
Next, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano avoided even mentioning the word "terrorism" in her first
congressional testimony. Now the Department of Justice has announced it is dropping the legal designation
"enemy combatants," which referred to suspected terrorist detainees. The aim of all this muting of the
language in the War with No Name is twofold: for the Obama administration to distance itself from George W.
Bush's "politics of fear," and to whitewash a plain fact that liberals are suicidally reluctant to
acknowledge — that we are at war with radical Islam.
Will Obama embrace Shariah as part
of his 'respect Islam' campaign? President Obama on Friday reiterated for the umpteenth time his determination
to develop a "new relationship" with the Muslim world. On this occasion, the audience were the leaders of Saudi Arabia,
Indonesia and the Philippines. Unfortunately, it increasingly appears that, in so doing, he will be embracing the
agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood — an organization dedicated to promoting the theo-political-legal program
authoritative Islam calls Shariah and that has the self-described mission of "destroying Western civilization from within."
Away From the Politics of
Fear. Spiegel: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security
Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat
to your country? Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism.
In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps
only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being
prepared for all risks that can occur.
Obama-Speak Replaces 'Terrorism' With 'Man-Caused
Disaster'. Even as President Obama compares bankers to suicide bombers, his
Homeland Security Secretary is suggesting the T-word, terrorism, is too inflammatory and
representative of old-fashioned "politics of fear." She's announced a new term:
Why would a President snub our allies and befriend terrorists?
One by one Barack Obama is alienating our closest allies. First, he snubbed Israel by making his phone
call to the leader of the Palestinian authority his first official act as President on the morning of
January 21. In that phone call he conveyed to the enemy of Israel that he could count on 'U.S.
support for Palestinian goals.' This is not the only time he has brushed off Israel. His
overtures toward Hamas and Iran's extremist Islamist government are but further indications of his deep
disdain for the Jewish state.
The Editor says...
I think there's an obvious explanation.
Obama and Khamenei.
During the U.S. presidential election, President Obama boasted that he would embark on personal diplomacy to
solve our foreign policy problems with terrorist countries such as Syria and the Islamic Republic. ... President
Obama, it takes two to tango, as the old saying goes. The uncompromising oil-intoxicated fanatics of
Iran and their proxies don't want to dance with you. They want the entire floor — the
Middle East — and the rest of the world down the road.
Apologies Just Tell Our
Enemies We're Weak. First, President Obama sends a message to the Muslim world, effectively
apologizing for the policies of George W. Bush. Excuse me, but shouldn't the Muslim world be
apologizing to America for their contributions to the radicalization of their brethren that led them to
kill 3,000 Americans on 9/11?
1984 in 2009. Last
week President Obama announced that we would no longer call enemy combatants "Enemy Combatants." Yesterday
[3/26/2009] the Office of Management and Budget sent a memo instructing people who are fighting the Global War
on Terror that it was no longer Global, nor a War, nor had anything to do with Terror.
Remarkable 9/11 Blindspot. Whether anyone chooses to notice or not, President Obama put himself
out on the very edge of a very long and fragile limb on the issue of how to handle terror suspects at Guantanamo
Bay. ... In fact, if it turns out that we do have another 9/11 and there is even a shred of evidence that the
closing of Guantanamo had anything to do with our inability to prevent it, I don't think that Obama could have
closed off any more of his plausible escape hatches if he had actually tried to do so.
Video: Obama's deep
bow to the Saudi king. I hope all the lefties who tore into Bush over his Saudi prostration will express
equal disgust with President HopeAndChange's literal bowing and scraping to King Abdullah. When JWF sent a link
to the photo with Obama bent down like a serf (further than either he or Michelle dipped for Queen Elizabeth, by the
way), I tried to give the benefit of the doubt. ... But no, here's the video.
Bows Before Saudi King. We never heard the end of it when Bush held his hand while they walked
together. I wonder if the left will be yukking it up over this? Is Obama that stupid he doesn't
know only his subjects bow before him? Apparently so.
One in 10 Americans still think Barack Obama is Muslim.
White evangelical Protestants and Republicans were the most likely to say Mr Obama — who has an
Arabic middle name — was Muslim in response to the poll question: "Do you happen to know
what Barack Obama's religion is?" Nearly one in five white evangelical Protestants and 17 percent
of the Republicans who took part in the telephone poll of 1,308 adults, which was conducted by Pew Research
from March 9-12, said they thought Obama was Muslim.
Obama bows down to
Saudi King. I am quite certain that this is not the protocol, and is most unbecoming a President of
the United States.
With bowed head and
bended knee. Has anyone ever seen Barack Obama publicly bow and bend his knee when meeting
someone prior to yesterday? I don't recall any photos of such a gesture of greeting, but I would be very
happy if some of the President's defenders on the left could provide such evidence that his striking body
language yesterday [4/2/2009] before the monarch of Saudi Arabia and custodian of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina was
simply a habitual gesture of warmth.
Obama doubles down on the
bow to the Saudi King. The story is officially "in play" now that the White House has spoken, albeit
from an anonymous source. American citizens are implicitly asked to view the demi-prostration and decide for
themselves. The evidence simply does not support the official position of the Obama administration.
The MSM coverup of
the Presidential bow before the financier of radical Islam. You have to look really hard to
find it, but the American mainstream media are glancing at the stunning Obama bow before the King of Saudi
Arabia, but only for the purpose of dismissing it.
Obama unable to
shake Muslim myth. In a series of four surveys conducted during the last year, 12 percent
consistently said the president is a Muslim. The number of evangelical Protestants with that belief —
19 percent — also has remained unchanged. The same is true for Republicans: 17 percent
said Mr. Obama was Muslim in 2008, as they do now. Among blacks, 6 percent say he is Muslim, down
from 10 percent. Among Democrats, the number is 7 percent, down from 9 percent. Less
than half of Americans — 48 percent — say Mr. Obama is a Christian, down from
51 percent. Thirty-five percent don't know what religion he is; no one classified him as
of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. A poll conducted by Pew Research in March shows that over one
in 10 Americans still believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim. That number is only slightly lower than the
results of a poll conducted by Pew last October. White evangelical Protestants (19%) and Republicans (17%) are
among the most likely to view Obama as a Muslim, according to the poll.
Obama declares US not at war with
Islam. Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday [4/6/2009] the
United States "is not and will never be at war with Islam." Calling for a greater partnership with the Islamic
world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important U.S. ally in many areas, including
the fight against terrorism.
Obama's Unholy War Against
Christianity, Not Islam. As far as Obama is concerned, the only religion to be "reformed" — which
is to say destroyed — is not the west's historic adversary but its progenitor. Islam is peaceful, he
pronounces, while traditional Christianity is bigoted and dangerous. Islam is a friend to America, while
traditional Christians are, as Obama supporter Tom Hanks described Proposition 8 supporters, "un-American."
A Christian Nation?
President Barack Obama said in Turkey: "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a
Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values." Well,
I don't know what "we" consider "ourselves," but I do think we ought to examine that statement and why Obama felt compelled
to make it a part of his world apology tour.
sheathes his sword and bows in respect to the Muslim world. This was Obama's first presidential visit to a
Muslim-majority country. Indeed it is only in that context that his speech in Ankara can be fully appreciated.
This was not simple nation-to-nation diplomacy. It is clear Obama is attempting something more ambitious than that.
He is fundamentally reshaping America's relations with the Muslim world...
Islam Has Shaped the U.S.A.. Undeniably the Islamic faith has done a great deal to shape the
world — a statement that makes no value judgment about exactly how it has shaped the world. It
has formed the dominant culture in what is known as the Islamic world for centuries. But what on earth
could Obama mean when he says that Islam has also "done so much" to shape his own country? Unless he
considers himself an Indonesian, Obama's statement was extraordinarily strange.
The dilemma of the "good"
Muslim. Even before his inauguration, President Obama signaled a change of attitude toward Islam.
He renounced the term "war on terror" and has never even flirted with another right-wing favorite, "clash of
civilizations." Since taking office he has addressed the Islamic world with respect — a key
concept in that culture — and recently declared in Israel that the United States is not at war with
Islam and never will be.
woman's appointment as Obama advisor. Egyptians are cautiously rejoicing over the recent appointment
of a veiled Egyptian American Muslim woman as an advisor to President Obama. Dalia Mogahed, senior analyst and
executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, was appointed this month to Obama's Advisory Council on
Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
How to Lose a Friend in 100
Days. Israeli strategy is all too often constructed, if not dictated, by American foreign policy and in
particular, the American President. How then could American Jews risk the survival of the State of Israel on a man
who they knew befriended and listened to an anti-Semitic pastor for 20 years, surrounded himself with anti-Semitic
friends and advisors, promised to unconditionally reach out to Israel's (and America's) enemies, and flip flopped on the
status of Jerusalem?
Billboards of Hate.
As Barack Hussein Obama draws closer to Iran, Syria and its proxy, Hezb'allah, moves to negotiate with Hamas
and intensifies pressure on Israel, accusations about the influence of the "Israeli lobby," but not the Saudi
lobby, abound. Increasingly, America's problems are blamed by Obama appointees on U.S. support for
Israel and U.S. foreign policy appears to be becoming less favorable to the Jewish state.
Obama to make
major address to Muslims in Egypt. President Barack Obama will make his long-awaited direct
address to Muslims in a major speech in Egypt on June 4, accelerating his effort to rebuild the tattered
US image in the Islamic world. Obama chose Egypt for what will be a closely watched appeal because it is
the heart of the Arab world, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Friday, laying out details of a trip
that will also take in Germany and France.
Obama picks Egypt
for Muslim address. President Barack Obama will make his long-awaited address to Muslims in Egypt on
June 4, accelerating his bid to mend the US image in the Islamic world from an epicentre of Arab civilisation.
Hillary Clinton's $900 Million
Pledge to Palestinians Will Promote 'Hate Education,' Panelists Say. The almost $1 billon
that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pledged as humanitarian and economic development aid for Palestinian
civilians in Gaza and the West Bank in 2009 also will be used to promote terrorism and teach the next
generation of Palestinians to hate non-Muslims and oppose the existence of Israel, a panel said
Monday [5/11/2009] at the Heritage Foundation.
Mistake: America is now on a collision course with Israel. In advance of Israeli prime minister
Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the United States on Monday [5/18/2009], President Obama unveiled a new strategy
for throwing Israel to the wolves. It takes the form of enthusiasm for the United Nations and international
interlopers of all kinds.
Barack Obama Is Giving Iran The Time It Needs To Build A Nuclear Bomb.
Has President Obama inadvertently given Iran the green light to develop an atom bomb? I only ask because it
appears to be the logical conclusion to be drawn from his announcement this week that he is giving Iran until
the end of the year to decide whether or not to co-operate with the West over its controversial nuclear programme.
and the Riverdale 'Bombers'. President Obama has done a lot of speechifying in recent days about America's
"responsibilities" in fighting terror. So you'd think he'd have a word of encouragement for the team of crack
FBI agents and NYPD officers that foiled a real-life terror attack against two Bronx synagogues on Wednesday.
Alas, not a peep.
Obama Another Jimmy Carter? During the U.S. Presidential primaries last year, I had expressed my misgivings
that Barack Obama might turn out to be another Jimmy Carter, whose confused thinking and soft image paved the way for the
success of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. The subsequent Iranian defiance of the U.S. and Carter's inability to
deal effectively with the crisis in which Iranian students raided the U.S. Embassy in Teheran...
Obama is blind to his blunders over Islam. [Obama] granted his first interview as President to
Saudi television and, later, made a speech at the Turkish parliament in Ankara. On both occasions he
highlighted the Islamic element of his background and solemnly declared that the "United States is
not and will never be at war with Islam".
Obowma and the Saudi King. As illegitimate
Obama's presidency may be, he is now representing America. When the president of America bows fawningly and
obsequiously kisses the hand of the custodian of K'aba, like a serf kissing the hand of his master, he is sending a
clear message. This is not Obama bowing to Abdullah; it's America that is bowing to Islam.
Obama speech to
offer personal commitment to Muslims. President Barack Obama will offer a "personal commitment" to bridge US
differences with Muslims in his long-awaited speech to the Islamic world next week in Egypt, aides said. ... "The speech
will outline his personal commitment to engagement, based upon mutual interests and mutual respect," White House spokesman
Robert Gibbs said.
court is urged to block 9/11 suit against Saudis. In a setback for insurers and individual victims of the 9/11
attacks, U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan urged the Supreme Court yesterday [5/29/2009] to reject allegations that Saudi
Arabia was responsible because it indirectly financed al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups. Kagan, in a 22-page amicus
brief filed yesterday with the Supreme Court, said U.S. law generally barred lawsuits against foreign governments for
supporting terrorism unless they met narrowly tailored exceptions. Kagan said none of those exceptions applied,
and she advised the court not to hear the case.
Why Obama is
losing The Third Jihad. As I pen these words not more than sixty miles north of where I sit, a radical
Islamist breeding ground is churning out hate, weapons training, and radical Wahabi indoctrination. To date
President Barack Obama's administration has done zero about it.
The Real Saudi Bow. When President Obama
first met the Saudi royals, he seemed to bow at the waist. Either that or he doubled over in pain. Did he
bow? Or didn't he bow? That was the topic du jour at the press briefing that day. But now we have
the answer: Obama is, indeed, really bowing to the Saudis as he visits the Middle East this week. First, he is
bypassing Israel. Visiting the Middle East and not going to Israel would be like touring North America and omitting
a stop in the United States.
The King and O. They
walked inside the airport, sat down on two ornate gold chairs, chatted briefly and drank Arabian coffee. The
president does not particularly like coffee, but he drank all of his nonetheless. ... The gold medallion the king
gave to the president is the King Abdul Aziz Collar, considered the highest honor of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,
usually presented to heads of state.
The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots. Given widespread
unease and prejudice against Muslims among Americans, especially in the wake of 9/11, the Obama campaign was
perhaps understandably very sensitive during the primaries and general election to downplay the candidate's Muslim
roots. ... Since the election, however, with the threat of the rumors at least somewhat abated, the White House has
been increasingly forthcoming about the president's roots. Especially when reaching out to the Muslim world.
"One of the Largest Muslim Countries in the World". As we noted earlier, and as ABC now confirms, Obama's
speech in Cairo will focus on his Muslim roots and the unique perspective it provides him. Obama also teased the
contents of the speech in an interview with a French television station: "...Now, the flip side is I think that the
United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points
I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim
countries in the world."
Barack Hussein Obama: US "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world".
It is important to note that "if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest
Muslim countries in the world". So says President Barack Obama. Or I should say: Barack Hussein Obama.
That's right: Barack Hussein Obama. Say it proud. Say it out loud. The middle moniker that dared
not speak its name during the election campaign is now front and centre of the US president's attempt to woo the Muslim
world, the theme of his visits to Riyadh on Wednesday and Cairo on Thursday [6/4/2009].
Israel to Obama: "No You Can't!" North
Korea is launching missiles, Iran is building nukes, Saudi Arabia is sponsoring hate that translates into worldwide
terrorism, Sudan is still massacring and raping, China is busy ethnic cleansing Tibet into a Chinese province... but
the Obama Administration is furious, yes "furious" at only one country, Israel.
What Muslim World? Even before
U.S. President Barack Obama utters a word of his long-anticipated June 4 address to "the Muslim world," there is
already a problem with the rhetoric. As well meaning as it sounds, the term "Muslim world" is a trap. There
is no unified Muslim world. And describing it as such legitimizes the idea that it is "us vs. them" — just
the sort of divided world that al Qaeda wants to create.
The reason the president won't
talk about the Long murder. Obama and others in his administration are all too happy to ignore the outrageous
murder of an innocent soldier in America while condemning the outrageous murder of an abortion doctor in a church. The
latter won't affect Muslim relations with the U.S.
regret-and-redemption road show. On Thursday [6/4/2009], Obama will indulge his hubris in Cairo by treating
1.4 billion Muslims to a lecture on American failures, a subject on which most of his intended audience needs no
further instruction. He will go on to explain how his own presidency is a repudiation of that checkered past.
Obama Renews Openness
About His Muslim Roots Ahead of Egypt Speech. President Obama has spoken proudly of American Muslims,
even referencing his heritage as the son of a Muslim man, ahead of his highly anticipated speech Thursday [6/4/2009] in
Cairo aimed at shoring up relations between the U.S. and the Muslim world.
Muslim comment sparks debate. President Obama's assertion that the United States is one of the world's
biggest Muslim countries has sparked debate about the comment's accuracy and how far the president will extend himself
to the Muslim world. "If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim
countries in the world," the president told French television station Canal Plus on Monday [6/1/2009], the eve of
his five-day, overseas trip with stops in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Obama's Cairo speech signals end of the 9/11 era.
If Barack Obama fulfills even some of the promises he made during his important address in Cairo Thursday, June 4,
2009 will be remembered in world history as the last day of the 9/11 era. ... Obama gave Israel the following choices
Thursday: Either the conservative Israeli government will adjust itself to the American people's choice in electing
a liberal president, or the speech will be the lightning that precedes the thunder.
The End of America's
Strategic Alliance with Israel? From an Israeli perspective, Pres. Barack Obama's speech today in Cairo was
deeply disturbing. Both rhetorically and programmatically, Obama's speech was a renunciation of America's strategic
alliance with Israel.
White House Video Features
Muslim Proselytizers. Just after President Obama's Cairo speech ended, I clicked on the White House
Web site. The home page, and especially its compelling large image, appeared to visually suggest the America
that Obama has been describing recently — a country that is not a Christian nation, nor a Jewish nation,
not even a pluralistic nation, but "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."
Let's All Accept Islam.
When Muslims start protesting the murders and indecencies performed in the name of Islam then I will accept them. We
are told that the people who do these acts are a small minority of Muslims. So where are the protests, where are the
books, where are the articles, where is the Islamic Pete Seeger? If Islam is really a religion of peace, then start
showing it. We have been waiting for it and the memories I have are of Muslims out partying after the Twin Towers
went down. Mr. Obama, it is nice that you want us to accept Islam, but would you have asked us to accept Nazism
or Communism with their mass murders and mistreatment of people?
9-11: The Desecration.
Add another Obama insult to injury on 9-11. First, he desecrated the memory of 9-11 with his planned proclamation of his
mandatory civilian service on 9-11, which he has designated a "National Day of Service." And now 9-11 has yet another
title: State Department personnel are supposed to pray with Muslims on the newly declared "Interfaith Day of Service,"
whatever that means on 9-11.
Muslims to mount massive march on Washington.
The first national gathering of Muslims will take place by the site where U.S. Presidents have been inaugurated since
1981. Key planners of the event, including Hassen Abdellah, say that the inspiration for the event came from Barack
Obama's speech at the University of Cairo in which U.S. President said that Islam is an integral part of American society.
Americans accept Islam? Earlier this month, at a White House dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month
of Ramadan, President Obama said some things that conservative talk show hosts love to rewind and repeat. In
the presence of diplomats, business executives and members of Congress, Obama described Islam as "part of America"
and hailed "its commitment to justice and progress." He then called Islam "a great religion." His
fellow Americans are not so sure.
Obama extends greetings on Muslim
holiday. President Barack Obama is extending greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid al-Fitr, which marks
the end of the holy monthlong fasting time known as Ramadan.
the Saudi King. Amid all the coverage of President Obama's address to the United Nations, we should
also note the obsequious "salute" that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave yesterday to Saudi King Abdullah.
... No mention was made of the fact that Saudi Arabia remains the only country in the world without a public church,
or that is has been singled out by the State Department as one of the world's worst religious persecutors.
Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
"If I were a Muslim I would let you know," Barack Obama has said, and I believe him. In fact, he is a
practicing Christian, a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ. He is not now a Muslim. But
was he ever a Muslim or seen by others as a Muslim? More precisely, might Muslims consider him a murtadd
(apostate), that is, a Muslim who converted to another religion and, therefore, someone whose blood may be
Obama Practiced Islam. [Scroll down] All this matters, for if Obama once was a Muslim,
he is now what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion who must
be executed. Were he elected president of the United States, this status, clearly, would have large
potential implications for his relationship with the Muslim world.

stripper girl next door. [Rima] Fakih, who as Miss Michigan took the Miss USA crown last weekend,
was born in southern Lebanon and, as commentator Debbie Schlussel has reported, has extensive family
connections to Hezbollah. But that reportage has been overshadowed by the more politically correct "first
Arab-American Miss USA" storyline, dovetailing as it does with President Obama's efforts to promote Islam at
home and abroad.
