Barack Obama, The Rodney Dangerfield Of The Muslim World
Obama entered office refusing to assert American exceptionalism in the Islamic world for fear of offending perpetually offended Muslims. So he launched a charm offensive instead.
But his overtures have been met with a series of embarrassing betrayals by his imaginary friends in the Muslim world. In fact, the more Obama has capitulated to them, the more they have sabotaged his peacekeeping efforts.
Consider that he:
- Pulled out of Iraq only to discover Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is helping Iran skirt economic sanctions imposed on it because of its nuclear program.
- Repeatedly bowed to Saudi King Abdullah, who in turn embraced Iranian madman and arch U.S. foe Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at last week’s summit of Muslim nations in Mecca.
- Rushed to withdraw from Afghanistan and turn over security to Afghan forces, only to watch them frag U.S. military trainers in wave after wave of treacherous insider attacks.
- Stood aside as Islamists took power in Egypt only to watch the post-Mubarak regime send tanks to the Sinai and threaten 33 years of peace with Israel.
- Sent billions in aid to Pakistan only to see the funds diverted to Islamabad’s cold war with India.
If there’s any doubt the money didn’t buy loyalty, Pakistan also ambushed our troops in cross-border attacks and blocked U.S. access to critical military supply routes into Afghanistan.
The anti-American effrontery — which spans from North Africa to the Arabian Peninsula to Central and South Asia — is a broad repudiation of the president’s post-9/11 strategy. He thought retreating from the war on terror and apologizing for U.S. foreign policy would win the ‘hearts and minds’ of Muslims.
He was terribly mistaken.” Read more.

The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.” Read more.
Flashback: Obama Administration Silent While Saudi Grand Mufti Targets Christianity, ‘Ignores These Types Of Provocations At Its Peril’ – “If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening.” Read more.
