President Obama certainly shows a lot of favor toward Islam. 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.

investigation of the Justice Department's witness protection program

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

the Justice Department had failed to add their new, government-issued

not continuing surveillance of somebody who had been reported by a foreign government to have extremist ties, whose public

from shouldering his responsibility as the commander-in-chief of
America's global War on Terror and embracing it as this

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
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,

Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy observed, "Obama was

The negative implications of Obama's time in

safe from Islamic terror — both at home and abroad. Gohmert: Muslim Brotherhood Is Guiding Obama In Boston Bombings Investigation.
Appearing on World Net

very clear to everybody but this administration that radical Islam is at
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.

Major Nidal Hasan, the jihadist who shot up Fort

Islamic imperialism. Obama Years

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

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

Islamist observation of the anniversary at the American embassy in Cairo

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." The
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. What
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
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? No, Mr
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. Emerson,
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
Brennan, listing numerous Islamic-based grievances against the FBI. On
Nov. 3, 2011, Brennan capitulated and began a fundamental change of
FBI practices. Barack
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
to convert. 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.
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
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.
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.

Delivery Of F-16's To Muslim Brotherhood. "Sixteen F-16s and
200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government

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

"Understand" Muslim Terrorists. The Muslim Brotherhood now

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

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

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

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

has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of
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.

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,
Obama's grandmother, decided to go to the Hajj, an obligatory pilgrimage
to Mecca with Musa, president Obama's first cousin, they were welcomed
open arms and were provided a special escort with full security detail
and first-class treatment at the Saudi royal court.

would be inconceivable for Barack Obama to appoint a man who had
praised the Ku Klux Klan to a commission discussing race relations; what
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
the United States' representative at the Organization for Security and
Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference,

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."
single phrase entails deeply disturbing implications for the defense of
free speech critical of Islam against multiplying threats from various
of this faith. This statement also introduces intellectual confusion
into the rest of Obama's remarks extolling individual freedom while
bigotry and insults. This philosophical quagmire ultimately is
resolvable only through reflection upon Obama's presumed future
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
"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
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
seeing isn't pretty.
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?

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
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.

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.

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
1990s. Rahman was in exile in New York at the time, preaching at
mosques, fundraising, building a radical following and conspiring to
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."
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

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
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.

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.

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

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.

used to trigger the widespread violence.

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

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
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.

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.

denying that jihad is the enemy, while his Justice Department acts as

There is no equivalent message from Obama in 2012 to the Muslim people

have gone more into making her enemies feel less angry than in
making her friends feel safer.

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.

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
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.

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.

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

being eclipsed by Muslim militants. Islamist parties are coming to power. Mr. Obama has no one to blame but himself.

entrenched all over the world that I could throw a dart at the globe any random day and find a story to discuss

getting worse, you ask? No doubt there are many reasons, but the one that sticks in my craw is that American

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."Why is
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.
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.
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."
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.Muslim
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
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.
Beheading Ourselves Over
Islam. What can the U.S. do to quell the violent spasms of Islam? Promote Islam,
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.
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."

Indonesia. President Barack Obama will visit one of the world's largest mosques when he makes good
on a long-delayed promise to visit Indonesia, the island nation where he lived briefly as a child.

Is Obama Submissive
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].
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.
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.
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.
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
• 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.
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.
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:Muslim
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.
Finance Advisor Picked by Obama as White House Fellow. ["]Samar Ali is an Associate with the
firm Hogan Lovells US LLP. She is responsible for counseling clients on mergers & acquisitions,
cross-border transactions, Shari'a compliant transactions, project finance, and international business
matters.["] Left out of the press release is that she also previously worked as an intern and received
training at the Islamic International Arab Bank... [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
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."
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
White House: 'War
on terrorism' is over. It's official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a "war on terrorism."
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?
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.
Murphy's Law, the Peter Principle
and Barack Obama. In only three weeks' time, this President has signaled to every terrorist on
the planet that we are a sorry, groveling, ashamed Nation ready to come to the diplomatic confessional.
He is closing Gitmo within one year, has suspended trials there, and dismissed the charges against the U.S.S.
Cole plotter. American penance is coming and it's coming fast and feebly on its knees. President
Obama has just put our money where his mouth is and is using $20.3 million to bring in Palestinian refugees
from Gaza, the Hamas-controlled region where folks prefer bomb-making to bread-baking. Instead of
helping Israel defeat them, this President brings them here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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

bypassing Israel. Visiting the Middle East and not going to Israel would be like touring North America and omitting

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.
Awful. What an awful speech.
Among the problems, one was the president's claim that there are "nearly seven million American Muslims in our country today."
The true number is probably less than half that ... During the campaign I had actually defended Obama against those who felt
he would be a disaster for Israel. This speech makes me think that may have been a mistake. The only chance now
is that this speech will be mere rhetoric, like so much in the Middle East, intended only for public consumption. But
if Obama really means it, it is bad news for the Jews in Israel and America, not to mention for American national security.
Obama's Arafat Amnesia.
Obama's self-induced amnesia about Arafat's rejection of the generous Clinton-Barak offer to create a Palestinian state
in all of Gaza, 95 percent of the West Bank, and all the Arab neighborhoods in East Jersualem, including the Old
City, is nothing short of astounding. Although pro-Palestinian revisionists have tried to exculpate Arafat, both
President Clinton and Dennis Ross, his chief Mideast envoy and adviser, are on record as blaming Arafat for torpedoing Camp
David and a subsequent round of futile negotiations at Taba in early 2001. History is very clear on this point.
Obama's Cairo speech proves he's experiencing a moral muddle. The outlines of an Obama Doctrine
are taking shape. Our President's world view can be summarized as "Everybody is a little bit guilty,
especially Israel." His demand in Cairo that Israel make major concessions before Palestinians recognize
Israel's right to exist was a pander of the rankest sort. What a difference a year and the audience make.
Exactly a year before his Cairo speech, on June 4, 2008, candidate Obama told the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee he would "never force Israel to the negotiating table" or to make "concessions."
The Grand Apology Tour.
[Osama] Bin Laden doesn't make any apologies for who he is — or the violence he advocates. ... Mr.
Obama, on the other hand, is desperate for affirmation — thus his repeated references to his Muslim
father and the Holy Koran in an effort to bond with his Islamic audience. To demonstrate empathy with
"our Arab allies" — and show improvement from his predecessors — he did not visit Israel and pointedly
condemned Israeli settlements, the construction of which, he said, "undermines efforts to achieve peace."
Americans in J'lem 'feel the hate' for Obama. A new video posted on the Internet featuring
inebriated American Jewish youth in a Jerusalem bar spouting hate-filled sentiments has garnered massive
exposure and caused a firestorm in the media and the Jewish world. ... "You're all about talking to the

The Editor says...
That doesn't sound like "hate-filled sentiments" to me, just reasonable dissent. Have we now arrived at
the point where any disagreement with the left is called "hate"? Were the Federalist Papers full of
of Bipartisan Support for Israel is Over. After successfully wooing nearly 80% of the Jewish vote with his
siren song, it has taken little more than one hundred days for the true motives of Barack Hussein Obama — who
now desires that his Muslim origins be noted — to be revealed and put into action. For years prior to his
election, Obama comfortably operated within the realm of the anti-Israel perspective. His record of sharing personal,
intellectual and political relationships with anti-Semites, purveyors of Palestinian victimology, and characters who seek
to demonize Israel at every opportunity had been well documented, albeit intentionally ignored and ruled as "off-limits"
during the campaign by his many supporters and the mainstream media.
Israel Need Not Apply for 'Hope and
Change'. I find myself becoming more and more upset and exasperated with the way Israel is being thrown under
the bus by President Obama. During his most recent Major Speech&tm;, this time in Cairo — which seemed to
be more popular with the American press than with the Egyptians, and which Charles Krauthammer aptly described as "abstract,
vapid, and self-absorbed" — Obama made clear his intent to fundamentally change U.S.-Israeli relations, which up
until now have been that of friends and allies.
Capitulation in Cairo?
The real meaning of President Obama's recent address to the Muslim world in Cairo is that he is turning his back
on the Jews at a time when they face another possible Holocaust. Mr. Obama called for a "new beginning" in
relations between the United States and Islamic civilization. He praised Islam's commitment to "peace," "justice"
and "religious tolerance." He listed the Muslim world's supposed contributions to history — algebra,
the compass and the printing press, among others. There is only one problem: It is all false. ... What's
next: Islam invented the Internet?
a Friend. [Scroll down] All indications are that foreign policy is being made directly — and
solely — in the White House. And this president's foreign policy increasingly seems predicated
on America's turning its back on its most reliable traditional allies. Like Britain and Israel —
both of which have long been viewed as having a "special relationship" with Washington.
Obama to Jews: I'm
Just Not That Into You. It is time for American Jews to leave the Democratic Party, to see
reality as it is and not how they wish it to be. To be a Jew in this world is dangerous ...and our
president and his party are deliberately making it more so (even serial Obama apologist Susan Estrich is
"not completely certain... where this president will stand in a crisis" involving Jews).
losing streak and us. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech Sunday evening at Bar-Ilan
University had one goal: To get US President Barack Obama off of Israel's back. Netanyahu's
speech was an eloquent, rational and at times impassioned defense of Israel.
Obama's Iran Blunder.
On its current course, the Middle East is headed for nuclear war. The only question is whether someone
will act to take history off that course. That won't be the left wing extremist/narcissist we now have in
the White House, who is lost in his own dream world.
Explaining Obama: Our First Islamist
President? At some point, it seems fair to ask why Obama is taking this approach. There is more and more
evidence to suggest that, alone among the non-lunatic nations of the world (North Korea thereby excepted), Obama has problems
with only one: Israel. Obama has for all practical purposes, become the salesman for the Saudi "peace plan",
designed to drive Israel back to the pre 67 war borders. As for the Iranian nuclear threat to Israel (and others),
the Obama approach can best be described as "not a problem", or "mañana".
Obama's deadly hand revealed.
Among American Jews, a degree of buyers' remorse has been detected recently. Almost 80 percent of
American Jews voted for Barack Obama as President. Those of us who warned that this man would endanger
Israel were scorned. How could that possibly be, said the secular, liberal American Jews. He's a
Democrat, he's black and he's pro-abortion. With this triple-lock of unassailable virtue, how can he be
bad for Israel? Now some of them are getting an awful feeling that they may have made the biggest
misjudgment of their lives.
Obama vs international law: By characterizing its demand that Israel prohibit Jews from building
homes in Israel's capital city and its heartland as a legal requirement, the Obama administration portrays
Israel as an international outlaw.
Jeremiah Wright Foreign
Policy: Anyone familiar with the views of Barack Obama's pastor of twenty years might wonder if
Reverend Jeremiah Wright is the chief inspiration behind the president's foreign policy. ... It is
understandable that after sitting through 20 years of sermons delivered by the pastor Barack Obama
considered his spiritual mentor that Jeremiah Wright's politics would heavily influence Obama's worldview of
the U.S. and Israel. It is unfortunate that they do.
Has Obama Turned on Israel?
Many American supporters of Israel who voted for Barack Obama now suspect they may have been victims of a bait
and switch. Jewish Americans voted overwhelmingly for Mr. Obama over John McCain in part because the
Obama campaign went to great lengths to assure these voters that a President Obama would be supportive of
Israel. This despite his friendships with rabidly anti-Israel characters like Rev. Jeremiah Wright
and historian Rashid Khalidi.
Has Barack Obama become the bane of Israeli Jews?
He swept to power with the support of 78% of American Jews. But has Barack Obama become the bane of
Israeli Jews? A gulf between American and Israeli Jews was evident even before Obama moved into the
White House. Just a third of Israelis would have endorsed him had they been allowed to vote, polling
indicated, while almost half would have chosen John McCain.
Obama's Attraction to
Human Rights Violators. With each fist bump from Hugo Chavez, Team Medvedev/Putin, Kim Jong-Il
and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, one would expect that Obama would learn to close his open palm and offer up the tough
policy that he promised would appear. Yet the only world leader who has seen Obama's stick wielding,
clenched fist is Israeli Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu.
American ambush. The basic reality that the US is being led by a radical ideologue who clings to his views
in the face of overwhelming proof of their falsity is the most fundamental fact that world leaders must reckon with today
as they formulate policies to contend with the Obama administration. This is first and foremost the case for Israel.
The Turn Against Israel:
Obama's notion that presidents before him have not been "as honest as we should be" about the settlements [between the
Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea] is a peculiar one. Every occupant of the Oval Office since Richard Nixon
has spoken unfavorably about them. The turn against Israel that so many predicted during the 2008 campaign is
coming to pass — with a smile, and a nod, and an invocation of a word that actually means something very different
from friendship. It might even mean its opposite.
'Them Jews' of Obama:
From Kvell to Kvetch. "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me." That's the complaint of Rev.
Jeremiah Wright, the anti-Semitic, radical minister who was Barack Obama's spiritual mentor for two decades. ... "Them
Jews" around Obama have been the object of much attention, especially eliciting the adoration of secular Jewish liberals
who comprise roughly half of the American Jewish community of five million. ... But pride has turned to alarm as even
some liberal American Jews are getting it: the Obama administration, including "them Jews," is uniquely hostile
against Obama: Prior to the election, many traditional Jewish supporters of the Democratic Party were
apprehensive of Barack Obama's initially negative attitude to Israel and his troubling association with people like PLO
ideologue Rashid Khalidi and the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright. However after aggressively repudiating his
earlier policies, Obama convinced most Jews that he would never abandon the Jewish state. Alas, recent developments
suggest otherwise. ... If one probes beneath the veneer of bonhomie and analyzes the substance of his policies, they
reflect an unprecedented downturn in relations towards Israel with hints of worse to come.
Black president demanding segregation in
Jerusalem. Late last week, the Obama administration demanded that the Israeli government pull
the plug on a planned housing development near the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem. The project,
a 20-unit apartment complex, is indisputably legal. The property to be developed — a defunct
hotel — was purchased in 1985, and the developer has obtained all the necessary municipal permits.
Why, then, does the administration want the development killed?
real agenda: President Barack Obama last Monday [7/13/2009] met for the first time with leaders of
selected Jewish organizations and leaks from the meeting now make one thing very clear. The only free country
in the Middle East no longer has a friend in the leader of the free world. Obama is the most hostile sitting
American president in the history of the state of Israel.
The President Takes a Hard Line
on Israel. In foreign policy, President Barack Obama has demonstrated a disturbing propensity to curry favor
with our adversaries at the expense of our friends. The Czechs and Poles are rightly concerned that they will be
sacrificed on the altar of better U.S. relations with Russia. And the Israelis fear that the Obama administration's
desired opening to the Muslim world will be achieved at their expense. Mr. Obama's attempted bullying of Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a case in point.
Obama honors an enemy of
Israel. Barack Obama today [7/30/2009] announced that he is presenting the Medal of Freedom to Mary
Robinson. So who is Mary Robinson? An enemy of Israel to begin, and the host and mastermind of the first
Anti-Obama Rally in Jerusalem. For
the first time in years, the nationalist camp will hold a large scale rally against United States policies vis-à-vis
Israel. The protest will be held in downtown Jerusalem, on Agron St. on Monday evening [7/27/2009]...
Settler rally: Obama racist; his regime will
fall. "(US President Barack) Obama is a racist," said Rabbi Eliezer Waldman, the head of the "Nir" yeshiva
in the West Bank town of Kiryat Arba. Waldman was speaking during a mass rally held Monday evening [7/27/2009] at
Jerusalem's Paris Square in protest of the American demand that Israel halt all construction in the West Bank and
Why Israel Is
Nervous: Tension is escalating between the U.S and Israel. The problem: The administration
views the Israeli-Palestinian issue as the root of all problems, while Israel is focused on Iran's nuclear threat.
Who really selected Mary
Robinson for the Presidential Medal of Freedom? President Barack Obama's decision to bestow the Presidential
Medal of Freedom on Mary Robinson, who headed a United Nation Commission that condoned suicide bombing against Israelis
and who also was in charge of the Durban Conference Against Racism that became an anti-Semitic hate-fest reminiscent of
Nazi Germany (and that the Unites States and Israel boycotted, to Robinson's consternation), has elicited some measure
over Obama's Medal of Freedom list. A pro-Israel lobbying group says it is "deeply disappointed"
with the White House over one of President Obama's picks to receive the Medal of Freedom. In a statement,
the American Israel Public Affairs Committee criticized the administration for naming former Irish President
Mary Robinson as one of the 16 recipients of the presidential medal.
Why does Obama
stick a finger in the eye of the Jewish community? Is the honeymoon over between American Jews
and Barack Obama over? Not by a long shot, though there have been some ripples buffeting the
relationship. His approach toward Israel (hostile) and the wider Middle East (ineffectual at best;
damaging at worst) has begun to affect his ratings among even Jewish Democrats.
Obama is no friend of Israel. The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) recently criticized
the Web site American Thinker in a Jerusalem Post op-ed entitled The chutzpah of Obama's Jewish critics
for having a "fictional understanding" of Barack Obama's approach toward Israel. This kind of attack is
typical of the NJDC which maintains a "see no evil, hear no evil" approach toward the president on this and
every other issue. This willful blindness is both wrongheaded and a disservice to Jews who care about
the fate of Israel.
Obama's Crusade Against Israel:
Opposed to the right of Jews to build in Jerusalem, Obama's administration can no longer be considered impartial,
let alone friendly. He's out to "liberate" the Holy Land. Taking an extreme position —
contrary to what Ambassador Michael Oren believes — is unprecedented. No American president
has made Israeli settlements the issue; nor has there been such an ignorance of the threats Israel faces and a
willingness to jeopardize Israel's basic security interests.
Israel's future. President Obama is demonstrating an alarming hostility toward the Jewish
state and has gone out of his way to describe Israeli homes in Judea and Samaria and in parts of Jerusalem,
as "illegitimate." ... The homes in question had been purchased decades ago by their Jewish residents who had
subsequently been dispossessed of them by the Jordanian Arab occupiers after the 1948 Arab-Israel War.
Orly Taitz: Obama policies are 'clear and present
danger to Israel'. Speaking to Haaretz on Monday [8/17/2009], Taitz slammed what she calls Obama's
support for Hamas, citing an executive order signed by the U.S. president shortly after taking office, which
funneled $900 million to the Gaza Strip. To Taitz, the executive order was a form of political
subterfuge meant to prop up the enemies of the United States and Israel, in spite of widespread American
Jewish support for the new president. "During the campaign, Obama was telling American Jews that he is
for Israel... but sure enough, just as he was elected, look at his first actions, he issued an executive order
to give $900 million to Gaza with no preconditions."
Obama and the Holy Land:
In June 2009, in a speech in Cairo, President Barack Obama announced a historic American tilt toward the Arab and Muslim
worlds. It is too early to tell if he, unlike his predecessors, believes in what has been known as the special relationship
between America and Israel, However, most of his fellow Americans still believe in it.
may be worse to come. President Obama's naïve efforts to appease the Arabs by bullying and
distancing the United States from Israel has backfired. However despite increasing unease extending to
some of Obama's most fervent supporters, the administration has yet to signal any change in policy.
Is Pushing Israel Toward War. Events are fast pushing Israel toward a pre-emptive military
strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, probably by next spring. That strike could well fail. Or it
could succeed at the price of oil at $300 a barrel, a Middle East war, and American servicemen caught
in between. So why is the Obama administration doing everything it can to speed the war process
Brezinski Calls for
Obama to Shoot Down Israeli Jets. In a little noticed interview with the Daily Beast (presumably little
noticed because serious people don't read the Daily Beast), Zbigniew Brzezinski suggests that Barack Obama do more than
just refuse to support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites — the American president must give the order
to shoot down Israeli aircraft as they cross Iraqi airspace.
The Camp David
Syndrome. President Obama has just announced the latest effort toward crafting a Middle East Peace
Settlement. That grand-sounding title is Beltway-speak for "let's lean on Israel to gain some street cred
with the Euros." He's chosen Hillary Clinton as his negotiator.
The Ugly American. If we have a
pure ally in the world today, it is Israel. America, like Israel and like every sane leader of every free
nation, does not want Iran to get nuclear weapons. So when Israel suggests that it may undertake, alone,
the burden of all free nations — taking out Iran's nuclear capacity — Obama's advisors
warn that if the Israeli Defense Force flies over Iraq without our consent, our air forces will shoot down
the Israeli warplanes.
America: Part II. Barack Obama has made every mistake that was made by the Western
democracies in the 1930s, mistakes that put Hitler in a position to start World War II — and
come dangerously close to winning it. At the heart of those mistakes was trying to mollify your
enemies by throwing your friends to the wolves. The Obama administration has already done that by
reneging on this country's commitment to put a missile defense shield in Eastern Europe and by its
lackadaisical foot-dragging on doing anything serious to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons. That
means, for all practical purposes, throwing Israel to the wolves as well.
and betraying an ally at the U.N.. The American Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice,
lobbied for the United States to join the egregious United Nations Human Rights Council — a body
dedicated to bashing America and Israel and shielding the true human rights violators around the world (many
of whom have sat as members of the Council for years).
Nature abhors a vacuum.
Bill Clinton is in Jerusalem trying to clean up behind President Obama and Hillary, whose strident anti-settlement
policy has blown up in their face. Clinton's comments are significant only because they show what a
shambles the administration's Middle East policy has become.
A Black Pastor
Speaks Out on President Obama's Past. [Scroll down] First, the President was taught for twenty
years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In the black community it is called "sitting
under". You don't merely attend a church, you "sit under" a Pastor to be taught and mentored by him.
Obama "sat under" Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan and Wright's friend to
attend and help organize his "Million Man March". I was on C-Span the morning of the march arguing that we must
never legitimize a racist and anti-Semite, no matter what "good" he claims to be doing. Yet a future President
was in the crowd giving Farrakhan his enthusiastic support.
Landscape of Anti-Semitism. Obama had a disturbing track record from the beginning. The Obama
landscape, the landscape of his personal and professional associations, is littered with anti-Semites and rife with
Israel haters. Only three weeks after Barack Hussein Obama took office, Israeli pundit Caroline Glick noted
that "since it came into office a month ago, every single Middle East policy the Obama administration has announced
has been antithetical to Israel's national security interests."
Does the Media
Misrepresent Obama When It Comes to Israel. If Obama were truly interested in "change," he
would encourage the Palestinian Arabs to accept and live in peace with their Jewish neighbors. He
would stop pushing Israel and start pushing the Palestinian Authority to take concrete steps towards
ending its war against Israel and the Jewish people.
Obama to Israel: 'Drop
Dead'. Sadly, Democrats seem to care far more about passing health care legislation this week
than protecting the U.S.-Israel relationship from Obama's assault. It's apparent that indifference of
(if not hostility to) Israel's survival is at work.
Obama has crossed the line.
Recent hostile outbursts by the US gov't must be viewed in the context that the US-Israel relationship has
been on a downward spiral since Obama.
The Subtext of the
Obama-Israel Dispute: By trying to limit Jewish residency in Jerusalem, President Obama plays
into this de-Judification of Jerusalem and poses a threat to both Judaism and Christianity.
Obama Heads the Most Anti-Israel Administration
in U.S. History. With its diplomatic assaults on just about everything the Israeli government
does, the Obama administration is establishing itself as the most anti-Israel administration in U.S. history.
I have talked to foreign policy experts in Washington, D.C. and Israel today and they are using adjectives
like "bizarre," "inexplicable," "counterproductive," and "outrageous" to describe President Obama's diplomatic
jihad against Israel.
Obama has crossed the line.
Recent hostile outbursts by the US gov't must be viewed in the context that the US-Israel relationship has
been on a downward spiral since Obama.
with Israel: Who will trust America now? We've been viewed as a fickle (if mighty) partner
at least since the 1970s, when we abruptly dumped allies from Saigon to Tehran. Now the White House not
only delights in insulting our closest traditional ally, Britain, but has intensified its diplomatic pogrom
against Israel — our only respectable ally in the Middle East.
'Don't count on Jewish Obama voters'.
US President Barack Obama harbors anti-Semitism and the American Jews who voted for him are not pro-Israel,
Dr. Hagi Ben-Artzi, the outspoken brother-in-law of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, said on Wednesday
[3/17/2010]. In an interview with The Jerusalem Post, Ben-Artzi said it was no coincidence that the
78 percent of American Jews who voted for Obama was roughly the same percentage of Jews in the US who
do not give their children a Jewish education.
Enemy: America? Despite Vice President Joe Biden's recent pledge of unswerving fidelity
to Israel during his recent visit there, the rhetoric and pressure directed by the Obama administration
against the only fully functioning democracy in the Middle East more accurately resembles the behavior
of an enemy.
Netanyahu's brother-in-law: Obama is an
anti-Semite. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's brother-in-law Dr. Hagai Ben-Artzi on Wednesday
called U.S. President Barack Obama an anti-Semite in an interview with Army Radio. "It's not that
Obama doesn't like Bibi," he referring to Netanyahu using his nickname. "He doesn't like the nation
Manufactured, Trumped Up Fight With Israel. For those who say Obama has achieved nothing, I think
the appropriate response is that he's destroyed the political career of Hillary Clinton, succeeded in driving
more Jews from his party to which they'd so long been loyal and managed to offend all our allies. You
think that's easy? It takes a special kind of stupid.
Switching Sides. In a
stunning and historic reversal of American foreign policy, the United States is now backing one of the same
horses it fought during World War II. Instead of fighting against Nazism and racism, Obama has
effectively joined the jihad waged during World War II by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.
How Obama Is Turning
America against Israel: At best, Barack Obama committed the latest big mistake in his conduct of
foreign policy last week. At worst, the president carried out a deliberate operation intended to weaken
the U.S.-Israel relationship and turn the public against the Jewish State.
Obama's War Against Israel.
The tension between the two governments is being stoked by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton in a deliberate attempt to weaken the coalition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Why Does Obama Want an Israel Crisis?
[Scroll down] So why this astonishing one-sidedness? ... Is it because Obama fancies himself the historic
redeemer whose irresistible charisma will heal the breach between Christianity and Islam or, if you will, between
the post-imperial West and the Muslim world — and has little patience for this pesky Jewish state that
brazenly insists on its right to exist, and even more brazenly on permitting Jews to live in its own
ancient, historical and now present capital?
Obama treats Israel and Britain with sneering contempt. Perhaps only one thing is certain
about the course of the Obama administration's ham-fisted foreign policy — there is no depth
to which it will not stoop to kick America's allies in the teeth while cuddling up to her enemies. In
the past month we've seen ample evidence of this with the State Department's appalling decision to openly
side with Argentina against Great Britain over the Falklands, and the White House's bullying of Israel.
triple-diplo-whammy day. Wednesday, March 24, 2010, was the worst day for US diplomacy in
recent memory. Between sunrise and sunset, we 1) handled our Israeli allies as enemies, 2) treated
Pakistani gangsters as our benefactors and 3) got blindsided — brilliantly — by
No Denying White House Animus Toward
Israel. This is not the first president to dislike an Israeli prime minister or even Israel itself.
The elder George Bush and his secretary of state, [James Baker] despised Yitzhak Shamir. But never has the
leader of America's ally Israel been treated with such open contempt as shown by Obama to Netanyahu. The
Israeli's visit to the White House was closed to the press — with not even one photo released of
Disgraceful Conduct Toward Israel. [Scroll down] The pressures Obama directed at Netanyahu
were severe, in one account even inducing a "panic" reaction in the Israeli leader. The total media
blackout that accompanied their meeting led the Washington Post's Jackson Diehl to comment that "Netanyahu is
being treated as if he were an unsavory Third World dictator, needed for strategic reasons but conspicuously
held at arm's length."
Bum's Rush for Bibi.
Judging by his actions to date, President Obama appears to have an almost visceral antipathy toward Israel.
He's happy to bow and scrape to Saudi King Abdullah, to have photo ops with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez,
and, as he made clear during the campaign, would even open his door to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
and Korean leader Kim Jong Il if only they would deign to sit down for a chat. But Obama gave Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the bum's rush on his recent visit to Washington. No photo ops, no
joint press conference, no diplomatic niceties whatsoever.
The Editor asks...
Would a Christian act that way? No. Would a Muslim act that way? Absolutely.
Does anyone still believe Obama's claim to
be a Christian?
Obama fools nine percent of Israeli Jews.
Only 9 percent of Israeli Jews believe that President Obama is pro-Israel, according to a poll taken by
Smith Research on behalf of the Jerusalem Post. 48 percent said that the Obama favors the Palestinian
side, while 30 percent said his administration is neutral. The remaining 13 percent expressed
Why wasn't Obama photographed with Netanyahu?.
The White House has waved off suggestions that President Barak Obama was "embarrassed" to be photographed with
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, amid questions over the minimal media coverage of their meeting in Washington
Post poll: Obama still in single digits.
Just 9 percent of Jewish Israelis think US President Barack Obama's administration is more pro-Israel than
pro-Palestinian, according to a Smith Research poll taken this week on behalf of The Jerusalem Post.
Obama demands Netanyahu's peace answers by
Saturday. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will convene his senior ministers on Friday to
discuss the demands made by US President Barack Obama and his overall trip to Washington — a trip
that, because of negative atmospherics and amid a paucity of hard information, has been widely characterized
as among the most difficult in recent memory.
New World's Record for Chutzpah:
Obama's Seder. After a week spent beating up on Israel, blowing a minor gaffe into an international
incident, subjecting Israel's prime minister to unprecedented insults that Obama would never think of trying on
even the most humble Third World leader, and establishing the principle that the Jewish presence in eastern
Jerusalem — even in existing Jewish neighborhoods — is illegal and an affront to American
interests — after all that, Obama plans on spending Monday night mouthing a few lines from the
Passover Haggadah at a Seder held in the White House.
The Editor says...
Mr. Obama may be awkward at a Seder, but he can recite Islamic prayers with an "impressive"
Passover Mush. Obama,
as presidents have traditionally done, released a Passover message. It is typical Obama —
off-key, hyper-political, and condescending.
What Makes This President Different
from All Other Presidents? This year, along with the conventional four questions of the Passover
Seder, some Americans are starting ask themselves: "Why is this president different from all other
presidents?" The answer is that Barack Obama has now established opposition to Israel's hold on its
capital as a cornerstone of American Middle East policy in a way that is completely new as well as dangerous.
Letter to the Evil Tyrants in Washington. [Scroll down slowly] As for you, Mr. Obama, you
have, to our utter disgust, shamefully treated our closest allies, but like a detestable serf, you have bowed
to the enemies of America. Your treatment of Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu is despicable...
Confronting Obama's Messiah
complex. Seemingly intoxicated by Congress's endorsement of his health care legislation,
President Barack Obama appears to have been overcome by a Messiah complex. His actions relating to the
Middle East during recent weeks oblige us to face realities about our "unshakable" alliance with the United
Delusion. Let there be no mistake: President Obama's attack on Israel's right to
govern in eastern Jerusalem has nothing to do with American national interests, and nothing to do with a
"peace process." Other American leaders may have disagreed with Israeli policy, but none of them
made it a casus belli. No other prominent politician sought to impose the "two-state
solution," based on 60-year-old cease-fire lines with Jordan, instead of a negotiated agreement.
Target Israel. [Scroll down]
As to what is motivating the Obama Administration's war against Israel, a number of possibilities have been
suggested. Some have pointed out the president's long association with people who harbor, and peddle,
deep enmity towards Israel, including Bill Ayres, Reverend Wright, Rashid Khalidi, Samantha Power and
others. It is suggested that he shares much of these associates' world view, including their
attitude towards the Jewish state.
You can fool most American Jewish leaders
nearly all of the time. The Jerusalem Post reports that Dan Shapiro, the U.S. National Security
Council's top Middle East adviser, conducted a conference call with American Jewish leaders on Friday to reassure
them about the White House's intentions towards Israel. In what I take to be his only honest utterance[,]
Shapiro said that a "resolution" of the episode is close. The resolution, I assume, will be concessions by
Netanyahu. The rest of Shapiro's reported remarks are so ridiculous that even the American Jewish leaders
apparently weren't buying them.
Obama's Diplomatic War on Israel
Is Just Getting Started. Some may have thought that Obama's rage at Netanyahu and the histrionics
that the president and his staff have engaged in during the last month was just a passing phase, to be forgotten
as they moved on to other issues. But apparently, Obama's anger at Israel and his desire to bring down
Bibi and to force the Jewish state to surrender on Jerusalem has not diminished.
Obama Want Israel to Sign a Suicide Pact? President Obama is often said to be pursuing
a Wilsonian line in foreign policy. Wilson wanted, ineffectually, "to make the world safe for
democracy." Is Obama trying to make the world safe for Islam?
A Friend Betrayed.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided not to attend President Obama's nuclear security summit.
He's worried his nation of 7 million will be ganged up on. Is this how we treat friends?
How Bad Can It Get?
The Obama administration has embarked on an assault on our ally Israel that can no longer be chalked up to a
minor gaffe or a misunderstanding. The Obami have been unrelenting and consistently hostile toward
the Jewish state.
an ally is no strategy at all. Barack Obama has come up with an interesting strategy for dealing
with the evildoers of the world. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Surrender your friends, if necessary.
He wants to make Israel, our oldest and only reliable friend in the Middle East, the guinea pig to see whether the
Obama's Israel Problem.
Barack Obama has an Israel problem. I won't say a Jewish problem, because that wouldn't be "politically
correct." ... Until now Jewish leaders had been relatively silent on the matter. Some of the more famous
ones in my hometown of Hollywood (Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, David Geffen — supposedly
great friends of Israel) have been as quiet as clams.
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."
Barack Hussein Obama vs. Israel. A
full six months before Barack Hussein Obama's Cairo speech, I reported on an interview I had with a
high ranking member of the intelligence community who stated that the Obama administration would turn against
Israel. That retiring member of the intelligence community laid it all out during our interview, stating that
not only would the Obama administration abandon Israel, but the U.S., at the direction of Obama, would turn
against the very nation with which we have long shared the core values of western democracy.
Obama's 5 Big Lies About Israel.
In preparation for his attempt to impose a final solution on Israel, Obama is spreading a variety of lies through
the media and his spokesmen about Israel. And by exposing those lies, we can best get at the truth.
Is Obama Winning His War on Jerusalem?
The Israeli government is walking a fine line as it tries holding out against the Obama administration's demand
for a building freeze while simultaneously fending off charges that it is not interested in making peace with
the Palestinians. The predictable result is confusion.
O, Such Sad Deception.
[Scroll down] Like the Jews of Goray, those people who voted for Obama are going to have their world turn over
180 degrees. I fear for their faith in Obama. He is not an honest broker. He misleads and uses
the ancient Roman trick of "bread and circuses." Interesting is the fact that this allegedly transparent leader
has not held a press conference in months. Obama's angry and contemptible behavior against allies is revealing.
His mercurial nature has Americans spinning; it takes incredible energy to keep up with his poisonous prevarications.
Obama's Ostrich Strategy.
If the entire situation weren't so serious, the White House's concerted effort in seeking to condemn Israel as
an irresponsible bully would be laughable. The Obama portrait of a big bad Israel is supposed to show the
Muslim countries of the Middle East that Washington is now truly even-handed.
Poll: Obama has Lost Almost Half of
his US Jewish Support. United States President Barack Obama has lost nearly half of his support
among American Jews, a poll by the McLaughlin Group has shown. The US Jews polled were asked whether they
would: (a) vote to re-elect Obama, or (b) consider voting for someone else. 42% said they
would vote for Obama and 46%, a plurality, preferred the second answer. 12% said they did not know or
refused to answer.
to Abbas: I am committed to creation of Palestinian state. U.S. President Barack Obama on
Tuesday [5/11/2010] pledged commitment to the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state and vowed to hold
both Israel and the Palestinians accountable if either side takes actions that "undermine trust" during
U.S.-mediated talks launched this week.
Jewish Donors Outraged by 'Sociopath'
Obama, Says Columnist. If senior journalist David Goldman is right, the correct word for
describing the way a growing number of US Jews feel about President Barack Obama is not 'anger' but
'rage' — white-hot rage, at that, and a conviction that they have been swindled.
America Needs to Stand with Israel Now.
[Scroll down] When the ship was ultimately secured, the Jerusalem Post reported that Israeli Defense officials
"identified about 50 passengers on the ship who could have terrorist connections with global jihad-affiliated
groups. The military also discovered a cache of bulletproof vests and night-vision goggles, as well as gas
masks." They also report that the suspected terror suspects "refused to identify themselves and were not carrying
passports. Many of them were carrying envelopes packed with thousands of dollars in cash." Yet, despite
these facts, the Obama Administration has decided to remain on the sidelines and leave Israel to face the world
alone, effectively abandoning our longtime friend and ally when they need us the most.
sharks sniff O's weakness. In the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla fiasco, the air is thick with
nonsense. Chief among the instant myths is that Israel has created a dilemma for President Obama.
Actually, it's the other way around.
Joining the Jackals: The Obama
administration abandons Israel. At the United Nations, a lynch mob for Israel is always
just a moment away. The Islamic countries are a reliable source of venom, led by the Arab bloc;
what we used to call the "non-aligned" are all aligned against Israel and happy to join the fun; and
the Europeans can be counted on for hand-wringing rather than staunch resistance. Only the United
States, and a few brave allies like Canada and Australia, can be counted upon to oppose diplomatic
lynchings year after year; and only the United States can stop them in the Security Council.
Interferes With Israel's Gaza Blockade. The Obama administration is pushing for an
internationalized investigation of Israel's recent effort to preserve its naval blockade of Hamas-run
Gaza. In an extraordinary interference with the sovereignty of a democratic society and its right
of self-defense, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said Wednesday [6/2/2010] that the United States
wants "a prompt, impartial, credible and transparent investigation..."
Thomas' words, Barack Obama's policy. Most Americans are outraged at Helen Thomas' culturally
and ethnically based anti-semitic biases, said with seemingly complete sobriety and coherence this past week
to a rolling video camera. But if Americans are honest, they would have to admit that the current
administration's policies, positions, and preferences towards Israel come scarily close to agreement with the
disgraced columnist for Hearst newspapers. This is particularly so in recent weeks.
Season On The Jewish State. Of all the ironies of the Obama presidency, the strangest is now
unfolding: The election to purge American racism somehow lowered the bar for anti-Semitism.
Open Letter to Jewish American Liberals. In case you hadn't noticed, the "chickens" of Barack
Hussein Obama's Muslim "outreach" efforts are "coming home to roost." Israel's determination to prevent
the free flow of goods to its mortal enemies has been "condemned," and declared "unsustainable and unacceptable"
by this administration. Obama's friends, Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn,
(a poisonous relationship virtually ignored by the mainstream media during the 2008 election) have been
directly involved with the organizers of the [so-called] Freedom Flotilla. And at a time when Israel needs
unambiguous support in world where their very right to survive is being challenged, Democrats have decided
that America's policy towards Gaza requires a "change" in thinking. What in the world happened?
Modern-day liberalism happened, and if you have an ounce of desire to see the state of Israel survive, it's
about time liberal Jews snapped out of their ideological coma.
Obama's Israel Doctrine.
Iran is on the brink of having nuclear weapons, and enemies of the Jews have gotten the message that if they
attack Israel, this president will do nothing about it. Relations between Israel and the U.S. are
the most strained they've ever been, and they will remain tense until Obama is voted out of office. His
foreign policy doctrine toward Israel boils down to four words: He doesn't like them.
Obama's outlook probably has a lot to
do with his 20 years at the TUCC.
friends of Israel. Congressional Democrats say they want to defend Israel — but without
taking on Israel's enemies. Bizarre choice — so bizarre as to make their professed support for
Israel practically meaningless.
The White House's Anti-Israel Agenda. In another affront to a key ally, the White House
reportedly doesn't buy Israel's story over the Gaza flotilla flap and supports a U.N. probe of its actions.
Helen Thomas would be proud.
in the gathering darkness. There are people around the world who fully understand the astonishing
and appalling end game that is now being played with the lynching of Israel — with the American
President having given the signal for the onslaught.
Obama and the
Rising Mob Against Israel. The Middle East is now teetering on the brink of war because
a vast international mob has been unloosed, with the tacit approval of Barack Hussein Obama. ... Barack
Hussein Obama is now playing the biggest role in the mob psychology of the Middle East. Why?
Because he is the authority figure who has given the signal that it's okay to attack Israel.
Dear Mr. President...
You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when
you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies.
You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's
enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have
promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.
Obama and the War Against
the Jews. As Iran races virtually unimpeded toward a nuclear weapon, the Obama administration
scolds Israel for daring to build new houses in its capital of Jerusalem. While Hamas, aided by Turkish
jihadists, arms for a new war against Israel, the White House demands that Israel exercise a suicidal
restraint. As Israel becomes ever more isolated, the Obama administration continues to reach out to its
enemies in the Arab and Muslim world.
Israelis distrust Obama. [Scroll down] Of course, there might be other reasons why
Israelis and their supporters view Obama with suspicion. Such as: His public humiliation last
March of Bejamin Netanyahu at the White House, when Obama walked out of their talks to go have dinner with
his family, leaving Israel's prime minister alone for over an hour, and then refused to release even a
photo of their meeting.
Why Jews are Deserting
Obama and the Democrats. One little-noticed trend that speaks volumes: the decline in
Democratic Party identification and support for Barack Obama from American Jews, once among their most
reliable and enthusiastic backers. There has been a steady drip-drip-drip of Jews leaving the
Democratic Party, most recently noted by the Pew Research Center.
So Hidden Agenda. To be sure, ties between the United States and Israel — far and
away America's most important and loyal friend in the Middle East — have improved lately from the
nadir to which Mr. Obama plunged them since he took office. That has nothing to do, however, with a
change of heart or agenda on the part of the President and his administration. Rather, it is a reflection
of a cynical calculation forced upon the Obama White House by its panicked congressional allies.
Knocks Israel in a Budding Sharia State. The president criticizes the Jewish state in a Muslim state that
bans Israelis. In fine Alinskyite tradition, Pres. Barack Obama is ready to say anything at any moment if it seems
expedient. So it was that he spoke some months back of the "unbreakable bond of friendship" between the United States
Barack Obama: the Most Anti-Israel
President! With his remarks in Jakarta, Indonesia, President Obama made history once again. Sadly,
it's a most unenviable title. I believe he is the most anti-Israel President in U.S. history. In
going to Jakarta, Indonesia, to launch his latest attack, he literally went to the ends of the earth to give voice to
his displeasure. He emphasized his opposition to the policies of the elected government of Israel. He
used his Jakarta platform to complain about Israel building apartments for her growing population. Where? In
Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.
Obama: Blaming Israel First.
"This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations," President Obama said Tuesday
[11/9/2010] at a press conference in Indonesia. He was referring to approvals issued in Israel this week
to build 1300 homes in two East Jerusalem neighborhoods. That is, 1300 homes for Jews. Obama
would have had no problem if the announced homes had been designated for Arabs — or anyone other
Obama's Moment of Truth
at the UN. President Obama has affirmed repeatedly that, under his leadership, America's bond
with Israel is absolute, unshakeable, and rock solid. But the Israeli public is not convinced. A
Jerusalem Post poll in March 2010 found that just 9 percent of Jewish Israelis think his administration is
pro-Israel, against 48 percent who think it is pro-Palestinian.
Israel's supporters better wake up!
The west is experiencing a total inversion of truth evidence and reason. A society's thinking class has
overwhelmingly subscribed to an immoral, patently false and in many cases demonstrably absurd account of the
Middle East, past and present, which it has uncritically absorbed and assumes to be true.
Shameless Imperialist. What Obama just did was encourage a twittered revolt against Mubarak,
and then publicly, brutally, in the most humiliating way, order him to resign. Joe Stalin would have
been proud. So would Mao Zedong. This is what the Soviets tried to do all around the world.
Obama has now turned the United States into a Leftist Imperialist power. What's his purpose? It
can only be one. Obama believes the nonsense that all the problems of the Middle East would be solved
if only Israel compromises enough with its deadliest enemies.
Bam slam. Ambassador Susan Rice blocked a Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements,
using her very first veto to do so. It was the right vote. Too bad she went and opened her mouth
right after. Visibly angry at having to wield a veto at all, Rice unleashed a vile attack on Israel,
using language far worse than anything in the resolution itself. She growled about the "folly and
illegitimacy" of Israel's settlement construction. She blamed the Jewish state for "devastat[ing]
trust ... and threaten[ing] the prospects for peace."
Sheer Sophistry. It is
sheer sophistry for American "elites" to maintain that Israeli settlements in the West Bank are a genuine
obstacle to peace in the Middle East. To even assert such nonsense is to ignore three thousand five
hundred years of history.
The Power of Samantha
Power. Samantha Power's opinions eclipsed the views of her nominal boss, National Security Adviser
Tom Donilon and those of Obama's Defense Secretary (who, at least, had to pass confirmation by the Senate, unlike
Power). Her influence is long-lasting and deep. She also probably played a role in nominating Mary
Robinson to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, despite a checkered record involving international
efforts towards our ally, Israel.
The Organization of
the Islamic Conference Propaganda Machine. Pavlov had a dog. The Organization of the
Islamic Conference has the United Nations and President Obama. The OIC, the largest voting bloc at
the UN, has an agenda. Their agenda is a one-two punch. First, don't say anything negative about
Islam. Second, blame all of the world's problems on Israel, specifically the Jewish communities called
"settlements." The UN's and Obama's conditional responses to all things Islam and Israel are helping
throw the OIC's one-two punch at the world hard and fast.
Obama's Newest Ambush:
It is hard to believe, but it appears that in the wake of the Palestinian unity deal that brings Hamas, the
genocidal, al-Qaida-aligned, local franchise of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, into a partnership with
Fatah, US President Barack Obama has decided to open a new round of pressure on Israel to give away its
land and national rights to the Palestinians. It is hard to believe that this is the case. But
apparently it is.
Takes Away Israel's Only Bargaining Chip. Every Arab-Israeli negotiation contains a fundamental
asymmetry: Israel gives up land, which is tangible; the Arabs make promises, which are ephemeral.
The long-standing American solution has been to nonetheless urge Israel to take risks for peace while America
balances things by giving assurances of U.S. support for Israel's security and diplomatic needs. It's on
the basis of such solemn assurances that Israel undertook, for example, the Gaza withdrawal.
Obama's Israel Surprise.
President Barack Obama, seeking to get ahead of historic changes rolling through the Middle East, promised
support for democratic uprisings in the Arab world and called for the first time to begin negotiations for a
Palestinian state based on Israel's pre-1967 borders.
speech should surpise no one. The citizens of the United States elected a President who attended a
strict Muslim madrassa (parochial school) for two years. Our current Commander-in Chief, while an impressionable
young boy between 6 and 10 years old, bowed down toward Mecca five times a day while praying to Allah.
He studied the Koran, including Sura 7:166, Sura 2:65, and Sura 5:60 and its repeated calls for the
transformation of Jews into apes and swine. Barry Soetoro was indoctrinated, as were millions of young Muslim
boys, in the same anti-Semitism that has always been taught in the Muslim madrassa's for the past thousand years.
Let's be very clear, Barry Obama surrounds himself with anti-Semitic advisors who relish the elimination of the Jewish
state, attended a church for 20 years where the clergy spewed anti-Semitic hate, and now bows, scrapes and sends
millions of US taxpayer dollars to Muslim countries and terrorist groups such as Hamas, who are the most lethal
anti-Semites on the planet.
'We can't go back': Israeli PM
rejects 1967 border proposal. In a tense Oval Office meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu sat alongside President Barack Obama on Friday [5/20/2011] and declared that Israel would not
withdraw to the 1967 borders to help make way for an adjacent Palestinian state.
Responds to Obama's Demands on Israel. According to The Blaze, Congressman Allen West decried
President Obama's insistence that Israel return to the 1949 Armistice borders established when the nascent
Jewish State thwarted the Arab Muslim jihad invasion. West characterized this demand as the "most
egregious foreign policy decision" of the Obama administration, while voicing his concern that implementing
such a policy "could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state."
Obama's Farewell to Israel
Speech. Yesterday [5/19/2011] President Obama, in what only be characterized as a flight from
reality, suggested that "borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed
swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states." But it gets better.
"The full and phased withdrawal of Israeli military forces should be coordinated with the assumption of
Palestinian security responsibility in a sovereign, non-militarized state." Would that be the "Palestinian
security responsibility" that has long countenanced the firing of several thousand missiles into Israel?
Obama's borders Caused
60 Years of War. Obama has just given an eager world his fantasy answer for the last sixty years
of Arab-Israel conflict. The Great One's long-awaited solution is for Israel to pull back to the cease-fire
lines of the 1948 War of Independence, or what Obama, in a moment of historical amnesia, calls "the 1967 borders."
People have fought and died over those borders since 1949, not 1967. Make that sixty years of regular warfare.
Obama Think He Was Giving a Pro-Israel Speech? Given what he probably truly believes of Israel in his
heart, his acknowledgment of its utility as a scapegoat, its security concerns, its right to determine its own future,
and the problems raised by the Fatah-Hamas agreement surely seemed like the height of generous good feeling.
Dancing With Arafat's
Ghost. On Thursday, Barack Obama went to the State Department to "mark a new chapter in American
diplomacy." The president's handlers boldly billed his lengthy address "A Moment of Opportunity" for the
Middle East. It was neither. Instead, he delivered a naive, revisionist lecture that was sufficiently
utopian and self-centered to have been drafted by Jimmy Carter. Unfortunately, he also demanded major
concessions from the only democracy in the Middle East and America's most steadfast ally in the region, Israel.
Up Obama's Speech: Making Israel Pay for the "Reset". Contrary to reports that said that Obama had
decided to pass on enunciating his idea of a framework for Arab-Israeli peace in the wake of the unity pact between
Fatah and Hamas, the president nevertheless proceeded to do just that. Though Obama paid due deference to
Israel's security needs and stated his opposition to Palestinian attempts to delegitimize and isolate Israel, by
stating that a framework of peace must be based on the pre-1967 borders, he has dealt the Jewish state a telling
of Obama's Middle East speech is swift. The reaction to President Obama's speech has not been
favorable. Tim Pawlenty, keeping to his practice of reacting swiftly to Obama's foreign policy miscues
put out a statement: "President Obama's insistence on a return to the 1967 borders is a mistaken and very
dangerous demand. The city of Jerusalem must never be re-divided. To send a signal to the Palestinians
that America will increase its demands on our ally Israel, on the heels of the Palestinian Authority's agreement
with the Hamas terrorist organization, is a disaster waiting to happen."
Genie: The president's policy speech lauded changes in the Mideast during the so-called Arab Spring.
Curiously missing was anything about ominous nuclear developments in the Muslim world.
'Change' Isn't All The Mideast Needs. The lesson of Jimmy Carter's incompetent, human rights-based
naivete masquerading as a foreign policy is that the "devil" you know is often better than his replacement.
The Ayatollah Khomeini turned out to be far worse than the Shah of Iran — and his Islamofascist regime, now
more than 30 years old, remains in power today, seeking nuclear weapons. Obama claimed "the people
of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades." But
we don't yet know what "change," particularly in Egypt, will mean.
Rabbi: 'The President
of the United States is Asking for Ethnic Cleansing'. President Barack Obama has made an unprecedented
demand on Israel, Jewish leaders said Thursday, after the president called for Israel to redraw its borders to
where they were in 1967 before the Six Day War. One rabbi said Obama was, in essence, asking for "ethnic
cleansing" of thousands of Jewish families.
'Arab Spring,' Christian
Winter. Obama wants to reward "democratic Egypt" with $1 billion in debt relief.
Only, "democratic" Egypt is torching churches and slaughtering Christians left and right.
Your Jimmy Carter is Showing. Obama is approaching peace in the same way Carter did. To both
Carter and Obama, self-determination is something the world bestows upon the Palestinians at the expense of
Israel, instead being, um, self-determined. But real self-determination is something that only the
Palestinians can give themselves. Peace will largely depend on whether the Palestinians are determined to
refrom how their own society is governed inside whatever borders they occupy.
Democratic Party Should Be Ashamed of Itself! Today its members proved themselves to be nothing
but partisan hacks who care more about party politics than doing the right thing. While President Obama's
speech regarding Middle East generated much criticism from Republicans, on the Democratic side, even amongst
supporters of the Jewish State, there was either positive spin or total silence.
Waiting for the
Miracle to Come. In an act of diabolical calculation, Barack Hussein Obama dropped a bomb
on Benjamin Netanyahu right before the Prime Minister of Israel was scheduled to speak before the joint
session of Congress at the invitation of the Speaker of the House, John Boehner. Obama announced a
proposed return to the "Auschwitz borders," Israel's 1967 borders that were at one point only nine miles
wide. Wipe out. And so the real story of the week, the unity government that Hamas and
Fatah began forming, was obliterated and disappeared from the national dialogue.
Obama's diversionary tactics.
What did the president wish to accomplish by purposely starting an ugly fight with the [Israeli] prime
minister this past weekend?
Obama's Malignant Obsession with Jews and Israel.
Untold numbers of words have been written about the woman and man Obama claims were his mother and father, the
far-left Stanley Ann Dunham and the Kenyan-born Marxist, Barack Obama Sr. Then there is the couple he
claims were his grandparents, the far-left Madelyn Dunham and Stanley Armour Dunham. I say "claims"
because there is still no certifiable birth certificate that attests either to Obama's parentage or citizenship.
But we do know that these people "raised" Obama and along with Frank Marshall Davis, Rev. Jeremiah Wright,
Rev. Louis Farrakhan, et al, profoundly influenced his hate-whitey, anti-American, and anti-Israel world view.
will go down in history as the spoiler of Mideast peace. It seems that when the time comes to
write the history of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, U.S. President Barack Obama will go down as the
great spoiler. He never seems to miss an opportunity to push the process into a dead end. He has
done so again with his declaration that Israel should return to the "1967 lines" in any peace agreement with
Obama's Israel Speech
Fools Few. Not only was this one of the most outrageous policy statements, regarding the
Israel/Palestinian issue made by a President in decades, but President Obama's timing was shameful.
The speech was given a day before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was due to arrive in Washington.
Edward Koch, a former New York Mayor, a lifelong Democrat, believes that "President Obama is basically hostile
to the state of Israel. A day in advance of his meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel he seeks to
cut off Israel's legs in negotiations.
the Most Hostile Sitting U.S. President In the History of Israel. There is some logic in the fact
that President Obama has fled the country while Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu addresses Congress. With
Obama's comments this past week on Israel, the president now appears to many as the most hostile sitting
president in the history of the Jewish state. ... When Palestinians move to declare statehood unilaterally in
the fall with U.N. support, it will be President Obama himself who will have laid the groundwork.
President Obama is not
Israel's friend. It pains me to say this, but President Obama is not pro-Israel. After
last Thursday's speech, that should be clear. His call for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement based
on the 1967 borders should leave no doubt where he stands. The 1967 borders are entirely indefensible.
He is not pro-Israel.
House seeks Israeli agreement to negotiate on 1967 lines. The White House is pressing Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to publicly adopt President Obama's view that Israel's pre-1967 borders
should be the basis for future peace talks. A senior administration official Friday [6/10/2011] told
American Jewish leaders that the request for Israel to endorse the president's peace principles was part of
an effort to head off Palestinian plans to declare an independent state at the United Nations in September.
Barack O'Bully Wants
to End Israel. Obama just demanded that seven million Jews in Israel abandon their homes to live
inside the cease-fire lines of their War of Independence. Those cease-fire lines are not borders, and were
never meant to be borders. They are so weirdly drawn that Israel becomes nine miles wide at the waist.
For Israel to withdraw to those lines is to "commit suicide" as a nation, as Newt Gingrich has just said.
Gingrich is right. This is what radical Islamists keep shouting about, in one, vast industrialized
stream of oil-fueled hate propaganda. And now, ten years after 9/11/01, Obama has joined them.
Standards of Jewish Democrats. As far as Israel is concerned, Barack Obama may be the least
friendly resident of the White House since the first president George Bush or even Dwight Eisenhower, but
that has not prevented him from raising large amounts of cash in the Jewish community. Nor will it
prevent him from winning the majority of Jewish votes next year.
Beliefs: Part II. The only thing surprising about Barack Obama's latest blow against Israel
is that there are people who are surprised. ... Obama's declaration that Israel must give up the land it
acquired, after neighboring countries threatened its survival in 1967, is completely consistent with both
his ideology of many years and his previous actions as President of the United States.
Obama's Final Solution.
[Scroll down] Obama has now reversed sixty years of American and Western efforts to reverse rogue nuclear
proliferation. The horse of Armageddon is out of the barn. Read that sentence again if you didn't
quite get it the first time, because it's the biggest, wildest gamble an American president has ever taken.
It is a world catastrophe, and as far as I can tell, it has been done with malice aforethought. At the
same time, Obama has demanded, in public, that Israel give up defensible borders.
Commander in Chief in Need of Serious Self-Reflection. An analysis of the statements and
actions of Obama and his foreign policy advisors clearly indicates that not only will Obama do everything
in his power to prevent Israel from attacking Iran, but he will also not assist her before, during or after
such an attack — either militarily or diplomatically.
What Will It Take to Wake Jews Up?
[Scroll down] Of course, not everyone who is on the left — and certainly not the traditional
liberal — is an enemy of the Jews. But, aside from Islamists, virtually all the enemies
of the Jews are on the left. The worldwide campaign to delegitimize Israel (i.e., to pave the way
for moral acceptance of Israel's destruction) is virtually all on the left. Universities in America
and elsewhere in the Western world, as well as the mainstream news media outlets around the globe, are
all dominated by the left. They drum into their students', readers', listeners' and viewers' minds
that Israel is one of the worst societies on earth.
The UN Disaster is Obama's
Fault. The debate in the UN this fall is just one more chapter in the ongoing war against Israel.
The Palestinians will not get a state from this show and it may well be that Abbas and the PA will lose more from
the resulting tumult than anyone else including Netanyahu. But it must also be understood as a profound
defeat for American diplomacy that was only made possible by the hubris of Barack Obama.
York Magazine Calls Obama 'The First Jewish President'. In New York magazine this
week, John Heilemann contends that President Obama is the "best thing Israel has going for it right now" and
despite some setbacks he remains a president "every bit as pro-Israel as the country's own prime minister...
Is Obama Pro-Israel?
[Scroll down] On the other side of the debate, New York magazine has a pathetic cover story by John Heilemann,
titled "'The First Jewish President:' The truth? Barack Obama is the best friend Israel has right
now." How credulous an Obama apologist do you have to be to believe that?
Obama Is the 'First Jewish President,' I Am the Last Barbie Doll. I am finding it hard to laugh
about John Heilemann's cover story in New York magazine. Heilemann is a regular contributor to
New York's pages and has also penned a book about Barack Obama's "hope" campaign on which he worked.
In a scandalous town and in a scandalous time, the cover of the 9/26 issue of New York magazine may be in a
class all its own. It depicts President Obama, seen from behind, wearing a kippah.
All those Jeremiah Wright sermons are now bubbling out.Obama
gaffe: President says billionaires should pay 'Jew' tax rate. While defending his call for the
rich to pay more in taxes, the president said he didn't mind people calling him a class warrior for merely
asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew. Whoops! The president meant to say
"janitor" instead of "Jew," and he immediately corrected himself.
Obama And The Jews.
According to a recent Israel News headline, "Survey: Jewish support for Obama drops to 45%: American president's
approval rating on handling of US-Israel relations down compared with 49% last year, but if elections were held
today, majority of American Jews would still vote for Democratic president over Republican candidates."
Does that make any sense considering that the Jewish people are supposed to be quite intelligent? Surely
by now they've heard about Obama's Freudian slip of the tongue that would have spelt curtains for any Republican
Obama's dirty laundry.
Obama can continue to give hollow speeches trying to ease the concerns of his Jewish constituency, but alas
the dirty laundry is out in the open for everyone to see and finally understand. Amazingly, or perhaps
not, the mainstream media barely reported the story, and yet if it were a Republican president causing such a
gaffe it would have been front-page headlines for quite some time. What does it mean when our president
joined in the denigration of one of our most trusted traditional allies? What does it tell us when the
mainstream media glosses over the story?
Open Mic, Closed Minds.
The whole world was watching, and listening. The leaders of the G20 nations gathered in Cannes, France, for
another of those endless schmooze fests we now call summits, Presidents Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy were
caught on tape telling us what they really think of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Back Against Obama's Israel Policy. Yesterday [12/15/2011], the Emergency Committee for Israel —
a group that has played a decisive role in the defeat of Democratic congressional candidates with checkered records
of support for the Jewish state — called out President Obama for turning Israel into an international
rips Obama over Hanukkah. Comedian Jackie Mason slammed President Obama's Hanukkah event earlier
this month as an insincere and condescending outreach effort to Jewish voters on Aaron Klein's WABC radio show:
"I don't even think he knew that he was talking about something that's Jewish. It could have been Muslim, it
could have been all together a religion he never even heard of. He doesn't know, he doesn't care."
How Dangerous Is Obama?
It's now quite clear that Obama is playing chicken with Israel on Iranian nukes. That is why Leon Panetta
came out with a statement this week accusing Israel of planning to attack Iran. If that statement is true,
it's the worst kind of sabotage, undermining the advantages of surprise. If it's false, it is intended to
place Israel at the focus of Iranian rage.
NBC News is reporting that Israeli spies have been involved in the assassinations of five Iranian nuclear scientists.
So far, not so bad. We'd say the engineers basically needed killing. But here's the astonishing part:
The source for the story apparently is the Obama administration — albeit through anonymous leaks.
[Italics in original.]Here Comes Obama's 3 AM
Phone Call. On or about April 1 of 2012, that 3 AM phone call will reach the White House.
We know what it will be — which is itself a sign of stunning incompetence in this White House.
None of this information should ever be public. Ever. But this administration has chosen its Secretary of
Defense to publicly leak the most closely guarded secret of Israel's back-against-the-wall defense against Iranian
nuclear weapons. Such public leaks amount to near treason in time of war. Imagine if someone leaked
General Eisenhower's plans for the D-Day invasion in June of 1944.
Sorry world, we elected Alfred E. Neuman. Barack
Obama is a nice guy who has degrees from prestigious institutions. He speaks well and writes well, but he is nonetheless
an idiot because he sees things only through the lens of himself. Where others hold a window into the world, he holds a
mirror. His supporters say he plays three-dimensional chess. He cannot even play checkers. Consider his
apology to Afghanistan for the accidental burning of a few Korans. ... What President Obama should have done is kept the Koran
burning to himself. We are at war. When in war, the military should not serve as a spy for the enemy.
The Editor says...
I agree, except for the declaration that Obama "speaks well and writes well". What has he ever written?
What remarkably astute statement has he ever made, without reading it from a teleprompter?
Obama's very small stick.
President Obama says he has Israel's back. The question now is whether anyone believes him. ... Mr. Obama's
comments must be viewed in the context of the credibility gap between his words and actions regarding the Jewish
state. His administration's policy relationship with Israel — as well as his personal relationship

agreement or beneficial game-changing action taken with respect to Israel. Yet Mr. Obama repeatedly
claims outsized credit for his supposed accomplishments.
2-faced 2-step. Even
before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left Washington, President Obama shed the cloak of resolve against
Iran and returned to spouting the mixed messages that have failed for three years. If the mad mullahs celebrate
with high-fives, now would be the time. As for the Israelis, it's good they didn't give up their right to
self-defense. They're clearly on their own.
vs. Israel. Obama garnered much AIPAC applause by saying that his is not a containment policy but a prevention
policy. But what has he prevented? Keeping a coalition of six together is not prevention. Holding
talks is not prevention. Imposing sanctions is not prevention. Prevention is halting and reversing the
program. Yet Iran is tripling its uranium output, moving enrichment facilities deep under a mountain near Qom
and impeding IAEA inspections of weaponization facilities.
Obama's Missile Defense Madness.
Back during the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama suggested he would be willing to meet with Iranian President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without any preconditions in order to achieve an improvement in relations between the two
countries. For this he was widely criticized, and he dropped the idea. To date, he hasn't really
come up with anything concrete as a replacement.
Barack Obama's Radical Rabbi.
President Obama's view of
Israel was sharply influenced by Rabbi Arnold Wolf, a key member of a
cadre of liberal rabbis and Jewish activists who blamed Israel
for the failure to achieve peace in the Middle East and urged
negotiations with the Palestine Liberation Organization while it carried
out terrorist operations.
Was U.S. Government behind

sabotage Israel's defence against the threat of genocide? America's former ambassador to the UN John Bolton
certainly thinks so — and he is not a man given to rash speculation.
Department's Jerusalem Syndrome. I went to the US Consulate this week to take care of certain family business.
It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. I think it is ironic that two days after my extremely unpleasant experience
at the consulate, State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland refused to say what the capital of Israel is. It was
ironic because anyone who visits the consulate knows that the US's position on Jerusalem is in perfect alignment with that
of Israel's worst enemies.
Obama's Got Israel's Back: That's Where the Knife Goes.
Iran has, up till now, expected Israel to strike from the south. Now, thanks to the Obama administration, which is
hell bent on preventing Israel from committing acts of self defense, Iran can move to protect itself. [John] Bolton
made it clear that this was an "orchestrated leak", not some CIA agent gone rogue.
Obama's Smart Diplomacy Disaster.
[Scroll down] For decades the U.S. stood resolutely with Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East and the only
reliable ally of the United States in this strategically crucial region. Until Obama. Like all his predecessors
in the White House, he dreamed of engineering a peaceful solution in the Middle East so he could go down in history as a
peacemaker extraordinaire. But he decided to go about it by siding with the Palestinians and pressuring Israel.
Israelis are not stupid or blind. In a recent poll, only 4 percent of them said they consider Obama a friend of
their nation. Israel has every reason to be wary of Obama's second term, when he would not be restrained by the fear of
a voter backlash.

... Stressed He Probably Knows About Judaism More than Any Other President'. President Obama met yesterday
[5/29/2012] with "about 20 Conservative Jewish community leaders, thanking them for the work they do to improve communities
around the country and discussed their shared commitment to rebuilding the U.S. economy," Haaretz reports. In the
meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more "about
Judaism" than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.

Have pro-Israel liberals — at least some of the intelligent ones — finally had enough of President Obama's

Socialist, anti-Israel Rabbi who Taught Obama What He 'Knows' About Judaism.
[Rabbi Arnold Jacob] Wolf spent 20 years
as the leader of K.A.M. Isaiah Israel Temple, which is located across
the street from the Obamas' home in Chicago. Rabbi Wolf
subscribed to the "blame Israel first" policy of American Progressivism,
and like the future president was active with the Democratic
Socialists of America. According to Wolf, he joined domestic terrorists
Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn as one of the first to
host "coffees" introduce 1996 candidate for Illinois State Senate,
Barack Obama, to the community.
Are American Jews Waking Up? This
week, a Gallup poll showed that President Obama's support level among American Jews had dropped from 74 percent in 2008
to 64 percent. That drop is twice as large as the drop for any other racial or ethnic group. It still leaves
two-thirds of Jews standing in support of a President who will not stand by the Jewish State. But it does mean that a
growing population of Jewish voters understand the threat that Obama poses — even if they had supported his socialistic
Jimmy Carter, World Chaos, and the Muslim World Takeover.
American government together with the British, French, and others are
determined to divide the Land [of Israel] and give more than half of it
the enemies of God. In December 2011, America's Secretary of Defense,
Leon Panetta, said "Israel needs to get to the damn table." In
other words, America must force Israel to give away more of God's Land.
Our government (not just the administration of Hussein Obama but
many past administrations) has cursed America by demanding that Israel
give up the Land that God told them they must never sell. Therefore
I state categorically that America is finished. [...] And to think that

A World Without America.
Even as Syria, Iran, Russia and
China planned one of the biggest war games in Middle Eastern history,
including 90,000 troops, 400 aircraft, and 1,000 tanks, the
Obama administration was busily leaking more confidential information to
the press endangering Israel's national security.
Obama's religion: polytheism.
So much has been made
of whether Mr. Obama is a Muslim or not. This question persists in
spite of the fact that he repeatedly claims to be "Christian."
This particular conclusion on the part of many has been drawn from his
extraordinary sympathies to Islamists and apparent bias that has
tipped the scales toward the Muslim world and against Israel. This is
something new among U.S. presidents.

that "our position hasn't changed" and that he hasn't gotten that

Obama's True Agenda For
the Middle East Revealed. Diplomacy will do the trick, we were
told at first. When we caught on to the futility of
that approach, it was "sanctions" that were heralded as the way to go;
and when the initial sanctions failed utterly to stop the mullahs,
we and the Israelis were told that even stricter ones would be applied
and finally do the job. They have failed as well, but not
to worry; maybe Iran is only pursuing peaceful uses of nuclear energy
after all; and, well, the US will run a bunch of naval exercises
in the Persian Gulf, and that'll scare those loonies into behaving.
A Tale of Two Rabbis.
Meet Lynn Gottleib.
She calls herself a rabbi, and she's at the top of President Obama's
"Rabbis for Obama" group — another cynical attempt by the
Obama campaign to pretend that they have support from the religious
Jewish community. Only one problem: Gottlieb is an
anti-Israel radical who bears nothing but hatred for traditional
Judaism. She's supped with Iran's genocidal president Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, and worked with Jewish Voice for Peace, a front group for
Israel-haters. She has urged that America boycott, divest,
and sanction Israel.

Platform Language Prior to Convention. [Scroll down] President
Obama is not pro-Israel. He hasn't been since the
outset of his administration. Whether it's military leaks designed to
sink an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities, refusal
to say that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel by his State Department
and spokespeople, or stating that Israel must begin negotiations at
the baseline of the 1949 borders, this administration has easily been
the most anti-Israel administration in the history of the State of

This tells you everything you need to know about Obama's

re-election. Samantha Power wanted a U.S. military invasion

Obama's Slap at Netanyahu.
[Scroll down] Despite the unanimous vote on the resolution, the administration did what has become their increasingly
common modus operandi with respect to congressional input: they ignored it. It's been downhill ever since.
The Treasury Department has issued thousands of waivers for companies doing business with Iran, while China and India have
been allowed to continue importing oil from the regime. Language aimed cracking down on financial transactions was

companies that underwrite Iranian affiliates.
No Time For Israel, Plenty of Time for Pimps. The long-simmering feud between Barack Obama and Israel "burst
into the open," as the Financial Times put it, when Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the Obama administration's soft
line on Iran, and Obama responded by refusing to meet with Netanyahu when the Prime Minister is in New York later this
month. The White House claimed Obama couldn't fit a trip to New York into his schedule, but Netanyahu also reportedly
offered to come to Washington to meet with the president. So Obama's schedule must be really, really full [...]

nasty exchange between the two countries in which President Obama turned
down a request for a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister
Netanyahu showed that the problem has now escalated from a simmering,
longstanding argument about the peace process to a full-blown feud.
Foreign Policy Is A National Disaster. It began with small but offensive gestures like returning Churchill's
bust to England and openly snubbing Israel's Netanyahu. Speaking of Israel, Obama has proven himself to be "the anti-Israel
President." But it wasn't enough that Obama pushed away our allies — he has also emboldened and empowered our
enemies. He stood by and did nothing as the Iranian regime crushed the people's Green Revolution which, with our support,
could have removed Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollahs from power. One can only imagine how that would have changed the balance
of power in the Middle East.
The real reason Obama snubbed Netanyahu.

selection as defense secretary has called for direct
negotiations with the mortal enemies of our closest ally in the Middle

gone far enough. Ed Koch: I Knew Obama Would Betray
Israel. I admire former Mayor Ed Koch's willingness to break
with his own party on issues of principle, but his comments to the

strong denunciations of the Chuck Hagel nomination, Koch casually let it
drop that he suspected Obama would abandon his pro-Israel positions
after the election. Dropping the Hagel Bomb.
You really cannot, in
fairness, blame President Obama for naming "Chuck" Hagel, one of the
most clearly anti-Israel, anti-Semitic members of the Senate (or
in his case) to be Secretary of Defense. President Obama has not
changed his views on Israel since his first speech at the Democrat
convention in 2004, when he made it clear that his sympathies in the
Middle East lay with the Palestinians. Former Dem Senator Praises
Hagel Pick on Iranian State TV. Iran's English language
propaganda arm said last week that the choice of Chuck Hagel for
secretary of Defense indicates that the United States would allow Iran
to get a nuclear bomb rather than confront the Islamic Republic.
The Iranians used a former Democratic Senator, Mike Gravel, as the
centerpiece of this report. Who's a Coward? Who said this
about a world leader: He's a "political coward — an essentially unchallenged leader who nevertheless is unwilling to lead
or spend political capital to advance the cause of compromise"? Was it perhaps John Boehner describing Barack Obama? No,
though the shoe would certainly fit. It was Barack Obama describing Binyamin Netanyahu. Hagel's
Disastrous Hearing Ought to Make 'No' Vote a No-Brainer. Former
Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) has vindicated his critics

disarmament, Israel, the Iraq "surge," and the "Jewish lobby."
He has failed to explain contradictions between his voting record and
his past statements on the one hand, and the positions he professes
today on the other. Hagel Stumbles His Way Through
Hearing. While the strict partisan divide over the nomination
should ensure that he would get the support of a majority of
senators, his bumbling performance undermined any notion that the
president's choice to lead the Pentagon was winning over any of his
critics. More to the point, his effort to portray his recent
recantations of his long-held skepticism about attempts to stop Iran
from going nuclear, his criticisms of Israel, and his belief in
engagement with Hamas and Hezbollah as consistent with his record was a
Cruz shows that Hagel slandered both Israel and the U.S. I had thought that Lindsey Graham would be the most effective
questioner of Chuck Hagel at today's hearing, and Graham did his usual fine job of "cross-examination." But for my money,

for the United States. Are

When President Obama gets to
Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication
of what country he thinks he's in. Normally this is clear
when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign

Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that,
but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel. Obama

A U.S. Department of Justice attorney argued Tuesday [3/19/2013]
against listing Israel as the birthplace of an American boy born in

but for "30 years he ordered and condoned the murder of American
citizens including U.S. diplomats." What does it say about a

standing under this man's picture?
