Obama stand with Muslims

After the horrifically tragic terrorist attack in Paris, in which two radical Islamic jihadis mercilessly gunned down 12 people in response to offensive cartoons depicting their beloved Prophet, the Obama administration announced that they would redouble their efforts to combat Islamophobia.

“There are some individuals that are using a peaceful religion and grossly distorting it, and trying to use its tenets to inspire people around the globe to carry out acts of violence,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.

And we have enjoyed significant success in enlisting leaders in the Muslim community, like I said, both in the United States and around the world to condemn that kind of messaging, to condemn those efforts to radicalize individuals, and to be clear about what the tenets of Islam actually are,” he added.

“And we’re going to redouble those efforts in the days and weeks ahead.”

You read that right. The Obama administration is more concerned with people who are afraid of radical Islamic terrorism, and less concerned with the radical Islamic terrorists striking fear into the hearts of people across the globe.

But this isn’t the first time such statements have been made by President Barack Obama and people in his administration.

President Obama, 2012: In the wake of the tragic terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans lost their lives, Obama took to the podium of the United Nations to condemn … a YouTube video critical of Islam and the First Amendment?

“(A) crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. 
It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well — for as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that has welcomed people of every race and every faith. We are home to Muslims who worship across our country. We not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. We understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them … The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Not listed, but certainly worthy of honorable mention, was Jay Carney criticizing a French newspaper over cartoons critical of Islam that were published around the same time as Benghazi. That newspaper that he criticized was the very same one that was just attacked this week, for the very same thing that the Obama administration called them out on two years ago.

Secretary of State John Kerry, 2014: In response to the brutal beheading videos put out by the Islamic State group, John Kerry said his mission was to promote true Islam, apparently oblivious to the whole separation of church and state thing.

“(Our effort) has to start major efforts to de-legitimize ISIS’s claim to some religious foundation for what it’s doing and begin to put real Islam out there and draw lines throughout the region.”

There are likely more quotes of similar nature out there, but suffice it to say, the Obama administration has made it clear that they are supportive of the Islamic faith, and will defend it, even as it attacks, brutalizes, and terrorizes fellow Muslims, Christians, Jews, Bhuddists, Hindus and members of every other religion one can think of, large and small.

Breitbart‘s Ben Shapiro has compiled a list of quotes that show that Obama likes to talk about promoting Islam a lot, even if he refuses to ever say things like “radical Islam” or “jihad” when discussing the terror radical Muslims perpetuate.

President Obama, 2009:  Almost immediately after taking office, Obama granted an interview to Al-Arabiya, in which he kicked off his vaunted “apology tour” to seek forgiveness from Muslims for all things American.

“My job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives. My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy.”

Shapiro makes note that he is unable to find any authority within Article II of the Constitution that could be construed as giving the President power to conduct outreach in America for the religion of Islam.

President Obama, 2009: At his infamous speech in Cairo, the pinnacle of his “apology tour,” Obama said:

“So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed.  That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t.  And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

Once again, the authority for the executive branch to fight negative stereotypes is difficult to find in Article II of the Constitution, most likely because it isn’t there.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, 2010: The head of NASA told Al Jazeera that the agency’s top priority was to reach out to the Muslim world, not put satellites, ships, and people into space.

“When I became the NASA Administrator, (Obama) charged me with three things. One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.”

While Muslims certainly made some significant contributions to science and astronomy in medieval times … that was medieval times. They have done nothing of substance regarding science or space since then, unless one counts their subversive nuclear weapons programs.

It should be safe to assume that it didn’t take Bolden very long to cover all of the recent Muslim contributions to science, but that would probably be a wrong assumption.

President Obama, 2012: In the wake of the tragic terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans lost their lives, Obama took to the podium of the United Nations to condemn … a YouTube video critical of Islam and the First Amendment?

At least we know exactly where they stand.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
