Barack Obama, The Rodney Dangerfield Of The Muslim World

08/22/2012 3 comments – “On his first Mideast trip, President Obama went to Cairo on bended knee and blew kisses to Muslims worldwide. Three years later, that love is unrequited.

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.

Flashback: Obama Administration Paves The Way For Sharia Law In America – “The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn’t the economy, which is scary enough. The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.” 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.

Iran: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei Issues Directive To Begin Intensifying Terror Attacks Around The World

08/22/2012 Leave a comment

By Con Coughlin, The Telegraph – “According to Western intelligence officials, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave the order to the elite Quds Force unit following a recent emergency meeting of Iran’s National Security Council in Tehran held to discuss a specially-commissioned report into the implications for Iran of the Assad regime’s overthrow.

Damascus is Iran’s most important regional ally, and the survival of the Assad regime is regarded as vital to sustaining the Iranian-backed Hizbollah militia which controls southern Lebanon.

The report, which was personally commissioned by Mr Khamenei, concluded that Iran’s national interests were being threatened by a combination of the U.N. sanctions imposed over Iran’s nuclear programme and the West’s continuing support for Syrian opposition groups attempting to overthrow the Syrian government.

Intelligence officials say the report concludes that Iran ‘cannot be passive’ to the new threats posed to its national security, and warns that Western support for Syrian opposition groups was placing Iran’s “resistance alliance” in jeopardy, and could seriously disrupt Iran’s access to Hizbollah in Lebanon.

It advised that the Iranian regime should demonstrate to the West that there were ‘red lines’ over what it would accept in Syria, and that a warning should be sent to ‘America, the Zionists, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others that they cannot act with impunity in Syria and elsewhere in the region.’

Mr Khamenei responded by issuing a directive to Qassem Suleimani, the Quds Force commander, to intensify attacks against the West and its allies around the world.” Read more.

Flashback: A Significant Number Of Hezbollah Sympathizers And Terror Cells Are At Work In The US – “A preliminary report issued by the U. S. House Committee on Homeland Security estimates that there could be ‘hundreds, maybe even thousands’ of Hezbollah agents operating in the United States and specifically in New York City. The report issued following last month’s hearings says that the exact number of operatives is hard to determine. ‘Pinning down a reliable estimate of the number of Hezbollah operatives who now reside inside the U.S. is difficult because of their operational security expertise,’ the report states.” Read more.

Egypt: Muslims Demand At Least Seventeen Christian Bookstores Stop Selling Christian ‘Idolatry’

08/22/2012 1 comment

By Raymond Ibrahim – “Youm-7, one of Egypt’s popular secular media that was recently attacked by Muslim Brotherhood supporters, reports that at least seventeen Christian bookstores in Shubra, one of Cairo’s largest districts, are under threat for selling Christian icons and statues. The storeowners, who are ‘in panic,’ say they received threat letters by mail demanding that they stop selling their ‘idolatry.’

Among other things, the letters, copies of which were presented to Youm-7, say ‘We warn you Nassara [Koran’s derogatory term for Christians] to cease your foul trade, whereby you sell filthy idols.’

Accordingly, the bookshop owners rushed to the police stations to file reports in the hopes that the identities of those sending such letters be revealed. The report concludes by saying not much has been done to secure the stores and that only one security agent has been sent to patrol, and only during morning hours.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Businessmen are therefore faced with a struggle for economic survival. Christians are indirectly excluded from employment, for example by job advertisements specifying ‘a female employee with headscarf’. Attempts are being made ‘to drive the Christians out’.” Read more.

If she does not respond in kind, she is asked to leave.” Read more.

Canadian Convert To Islam Who Wanted To Kill As Many Non-Muslims As Possible And Shred Them To Pieces Dies For Allah

08/22/2012 1 comment

By Stewart Bell, National Post – “In the video he shot inside his hut in the mountains of Dagestan last winter, William Plotnikov narrated as he panned from the black flag of jihad to three bearded rebels and their assault rifles.

Then he turned the camera on himself.

‘I ask Allah that the next season he’ll give us the opportunity to kill as many kafirs [non-believers] as we can, just to shred them to pieces,’ William said. ‘Allah is almighty.’

Watching the clip on the computer in his apartment north of Toronto last week, Vitaly Plotnikov looked both heartbroken and perplexed. It was hard for him to accept that this was his son.

‘It’s just like a different person to me,’ he said.

Russian security forces announced last month that they had killed William, a 23-year-old Canadian, during a gun battle in Dagestan. Since then, the Canadian government has been trying to verify the Russians’ account.

But in an interview with the National Post, Mr. Plotnikov confirmed William’s death and spoke for the first time about his son’s rapid transformation from Toronto teenager and champion boxer to Muslim convert and jihadist fighter.

What seemed to amaze Mr. Plotnikov most was how fast it all happened. His son only became interested in Islam in 2009, he said. Within a year, he had left Canada and by July he was dead. He had gone from convert to martyr in less than three years…

‘How can the mind of a person be changed in such a short period of time?’ …” Read more.
