The Emerging ‘Osama Spring’ Must Become The Autumn Of Obama

09/14/2012 Leave a comment

By Joel Richardson – “While some still refer to the revolution that swept through the Middle East as the ‘Arab Spring,’ many others, particularly Muslims throughout the Middle East, refer to it more properly as the ‘Islamic Awakening.’ As history will forever testify, President Barack Obama’s role in the unfolding of the Islamic Awakening was to support or assist in the overthrow of two leaders (so far), resulting in two new Islamist governments in Egypt and Libya. Allāhu Akbar!

And now history will also testify that it was precisely these two nations that used the anniversary of 9/11 to thank President Obama and the American people by attacking two U.S. embassies, violating and burning the American flag, replacing it with the black flag of the Islamic caliphate, and murdering U.S. diplomats, all the while shouting the taunting slogan: ‘Obama, we are all Osama!’ How ungrateful are these people, anyway? Surely, Obama hasn’t explained himself to these people thoroughly enough. Perhaps, if he is given four more years, the Islamists will finally come to understand his good intentions.

And where was the Egyptian military as the ‘protesters’ were desecrating the American flag and penetrating the embassy walls? One would think that perhaps a small portion of the $1.3 billion in aid the United States gives to Egypt annually might be used to help safeguard our embassy. Well, such may have been the case in the age of Bush and Mubarak, but no more. ‘Change has come’ to Egypt, and as Obama jubilantly declared on the day Mubarak was ousted, ‘The people of Egypt have spoken. Their voices have been heard. And Egypt will never be the same … but this is not the end of Egypt’s transition. It’s the beginning.’ This is no longer the age of Bush and Mubarak; this is the age of Mursi and Obama. Takbir!

In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, the contrast in responses and the leadership displayed by Romney and the Obama administration was vividly crisp.

The Obama administration, as it has typically been the past four years in virtually every important foreign-policy decision, was Read more…

Mrs. Clinton And Mr. Obama, It’s Time To Wake Up And Smell The Global Jihad

I highly recommend that you read the full article …

By Christian Whiton, Fox Nation – “When the men who killed our ambassador to Libya were in the final stages of their preparation, Hillary Clinton was in the Cook Islands, being regaled by locals in traditional dress. Her seemingly endless world tour has prioritized symbolism and pageantry over substance. So too has the administration of her boss, Barack Obama, and the costs are now becoming clear.

This explains why Obama’s chief diplomat said of the Libya attack: ‘I asked myself—how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?’

Madam secretary, it is time for you and your boss 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.’ It was there that he apologized for critical steps American officials took in the Middle East to defend against the Soviets eight years before Obama was born. It was there that he criticized his own nation’s response to 9/11.

That was the reason US diplomats in Cairo instinctively put out an apologetic condemnation of those who ‘hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.’ They were simply channeling the Obama view of the world.

Hillary also said that the attack was the result of a ‘small and savage group.’

Wrong again.

Viewed correctly, the attack was perpetrated by a very large group. Terrorism as we have known it since 9/11 is but the violent vanguard of the Islamist political ideology. This ideology unifies diverse terrorists from Jemmah Islamiyah in Indonesia to Al-Shabaab in Somalia to Boko Haram in Nigeria to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to the Haqqani network in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

While the groups are diverse and at times antagonistic toward each other, their hatred of America unites them, and they work toward a generally common goal.” Read more.

Black Flag Of Islam Flies Over American Embassy In Tunisia As Attacks On America Continue Around The Globe

09/14/2012 5 comments

The Cleveland Leader – “A black Islamic flag is currently flying over the U.S. embassy in Tunisia after it had been stormed by an angry mob of protesters, who were upset over an anti-Islam film that was made by Americans.

This is just one of many incidents occurring around the world today, in which Americans are being targeted.

In Tunis, the mob overran the compound, scaling walls and setting fire to trees before tearing down the American flag and replacing it with a symbol of Islam. It is not thought that any U.S. staff were actually in the embassy in Tunis. An American school in Tunis was also set on fire. Police responded to the mobs by firing tear gas, and police gunfire could also be heard.

Several dozen protesters were also briefly able to enter the embassy compound and set fire to cars in the embassy parking lot. Police and special forces pushed them back outside.

In Lebanon today angry protesters ransacked a KFC and Hardee’s restaurant, police were firing on protesters in Yemen, and there was also unrest in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and Turkey. Additional unrest occurred in Sudan where an angry mob attacked British and German embassies. In Bangladesh tens of thousands took to the streets to protest, and in India there are widespread protests in Muslim Kashmir. In London, protesters burned an American flag outside of the U.S. embassy.” Source – The Cleveland Leader.

Protesters Set Fire to U.S. School in Tunis – “(Reuters) – Protesters set fire to the American School in the Tunisian capital on Friday, after hundreds of people incensed by a U.S.-made film that demeans Prophet Mohammad invaded the U.S. embassy compound and clashed with riot police, a Reuters reporter said. The school was closed on Friday. Protesters had earlier set fire to trees in the U.S. embassy compound. “(U.S. President Barack) Obama, Obama, we are all Osamas,” the protesters chanted, in reference to the slain al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.” Source – Reuters.

Barack Obama 2007 Radio Interview: The Day I’m Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease

09/14/2012 12 comments

Proverbs 22:24-25, “Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.”

Embracing the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and employing members of the terror organization at the White House has done nothing to pacify the Muslim world. Spending millions of American tax dollars to build mosques overseas has done nothing to pacify the Muslim world. Pretending that Islamic terrorism doesn’t exist and that the war on terror is over has done nothing to pacify the Muslim world. Nor has treating Israel more like an enemy than a friend, nor has paving the way for Sharia Law in America, nor has hand-picking his own Muslim faith adviser or supporting Arab Spring Islamists. Each and every effort has proven to be one colossal failure after another. Because you and I are still here …

Then: Caller Question: “Can you tell me a little bit more about your background and your experience, and how it will help to repair our negative image in the world?”

Then: Barack Obama, November 21, 2007: “Well, I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only does the country look at itself differently but the world looks at America differently. If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian but I also understand their point of view… My sister is half Indonesian, I traveled there all the way through my college years and so I’m intimately concerned with what happens in these countries and the cultures and the perspectives these folks have. And those are powerful tools for us to be able to reach out to the world and when you combine that with my work on the Senate Forum Relations Committee on everything from nuclear proliferation to issues of genocide then I think that the world will have confidence that I am listening to them and that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world. That will ultimately make us safer, and that’s something that [the Bush] administration has failed to understand.” (Listen to radio interview on Breitbart).

Now: Barack Obama: The Rodney Dangerfield Of The Muslim World – “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.” Read more.

Now: ‘An Ongoing Sharp Increase in Jihad Activity in Obama’s America’ – “It is almost every day now. Jihadi attacks in America. This past week there were three attempted jihad attacks. And what does the media consider the problem? Racistislamophobicantimuslimbigots, of course. On Saturday, a Muslim named Sami Osmakac was arrested in Florida on charges of plotting to go jihad on nightclubs and the Tampa, Florida, sheriff’s headquarters. ‘We all have to die,’ Osmakac said, ‘so why not die the Islamic way?’” Read more.

“TRIPOLI, Lebanon (Reuters) – One demonstrator was killed and two others were wounded in clashes with security forces in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday in protests over a film insulting the Muslim Prophet Mohammad and against the pope’s visit to Lebanon.

A security source said the man was killed as protesters tried to storm a government building. Earlier, a U.S. fast food restaurant was set alight. Twelve members of the security forces were wounded by stones thrown by protesters, the source said.

The U.S.-made film has sparked violent protests in Libya, where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed, and in Egypt, Yemen and Sudan and there are fears the demonstrations could spread to other Muslim countries.” Read more.

CNN Live Blog – “Several protests stemming at least in part from an anti-Islam film produced in the United States are unfolding outside U.S. embassies around the world…

In Tunisia, protesters have scaled a U.S. Embassy gate and set fire to cars on the property, a journalist there says. In Egypt, the influential Muslim Brotherhood canceled nationwide protests planned for Friday, but a running battle between police and protesters in Cairo continued into its fourth day…

Nigerian military and police fired shots to disperse a crowd of protesters in the city of Jos, an eyewitness said.

About 2,000 people protesting the anti-Islamic film gathered at a central mosque, and security forces intervened when the crowd started moving toward the city center…

– In Afghanistan, hundreds of demonstrators in the eastern Nangarhar province burned a U.S. flag and chanted ‘Death to America’ and ‘We condemn the film.’ The demonstration lasted about an hour and ended peacefully, a local official said. The Afghan government has ordered an indefinite block of YouTube to prevent people there from watching the clips and staging violent protests.

FBI Warns Of Violence In America Over Anti-Islamic Movie

09/14/2012 1 comment

They’re being politically correct. What they’re really warning the public about is not just simply violence, but rather violent Muslims specifically …

By PIERRE THOMAS, RICHARD ESPOSITO, DANA HUGHES and KEVIN DOLAK – “A U.S. intelligence bulletin warned today that the violent outrage aimed at U.S. embassies spawned by a movie mocking the Prophet Mohammed could be spread to America by extremist groups eager to ‘exploit anger.’

The Joint Intelligence Bulletin issued by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security said ‘the risk of violence could increase both at home and abroad as the film continues to gain attention.’

‘First responders should remain aware of the potential for spontaneous large crowds and protests that could overwhelm resources and should be vigilant for possible efforts to encourage peaceful protesters to commit acts of violence,’ the warning said.

It urged ‘faith-based organizations to promptly report suspicious activities that could indicate pre-operational plotting against Jewish, Coptic, Islamic, or any other faith-based communities.’

It added, however, that there was no information regarding any specific threats.

The bulletin warned that ‘violent extremist groups in the United States could exploit anger over the film to advance their recruitment efforts.'” Read more.

Flashback: ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ – Al-Qaeda Calls on US Muslims to Buy Guns and Start Killing Americans – “If an event were to occur in the world that would be eschatologically pivotal for Muslims this would be sure to awaken any radical elements within the Muslim population, regardless of where they live, and even radicalize some of those who were previously considered ‘moderate’. The arrival of al Mahdi, for example, could become the ‘triggering event’ that has the potential to precipitate a sudden surge in Islamic terrorism all over the globe. If we are complacent into believing that any such scenario could never happen or is highly unlikely, we don’t need to look far before we come face to face with the sobering reality that Islamic terrorist cells are, today, already forming within our own borders.” 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.

Flashback: 35 Islamic Terror Training Camps Now Operating … Inside the United States– “A radical jihadist group responsible for nearly 50 attacks on American soil is operating 35 terrorist training camps across the nation, but the U.S. government refuses to include the organization on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorists. Jamaat ul-Fuqra, known in the U.S. as ‘Muslims of America,’ has purchased or leased hundreds of acres of property – from New York to California – in which the leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, boasts of conducting ‘the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.’ In a recruitment video captured from Gilani’s ‘Soldiers of Allah,’ he states in English: ‘We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.’” Read more.

Telephone Terrorism: ‘Al-Qaeda’ Bomb Threats Evacuate University Of Texas And North Dakota State University Campuses

09/14/2012 2 comments

By JIM VERTUNO, Associated Press – ” AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Thousands of people streamed off university campuses in Texas and North Dakota on Friday after phoned-in bomb threats prompted evacuations and officials warned students and faculty to get away as quickly as possible. No bombs had been found on either campus by late morning and it was not clear whether the threats were related.

The University of Texas issued received a call about 8:35 a.m. from a man claiming to be with al-Qaida who said he had placed bombs all over the 50,000-student Austin campus, according to University of Texas spokeswoman Rhonda Weldon. He claimed the bombs would go off in 90 minutes and all buildings were evacuated at 9:50 a.m. as a precaution, Weldon said.

The deadline passed without incident, and the university issued another advisory saying all buildings had been cleared. It left open the possibility that classes could resume later Friday.

North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani said 20,000 people also were evacuated from his school’s main and downtown campuses in Fargo after the school received its bomb threat Friday morning. Officials did not immediately release details about the North Dakota threat.

In Texas, sirens wailed on campus and cellphones pinged with text messages as the alert when out. Students described more confusion than panic as they began to exit the sprawling campus in what one described as an ‘orderly but tense’ manner. Students said they were directed off campus by university staff.

‘One of them said to me `get off this campus as soon as possible,” said Elizabeth Gerberich, an 18-year-old freshman from New Jersey.” Read more.
