It is pretty sad for American when we have to wonder where our President’s allegiance stands!
To borrow upon the famous quote from one of the world’s greatest leaders, Winston Churchill, during the Battle of Britain andapply it to President Barack Obama’s response to the Islamic threat that is ISIS: Never in the field of human conflict was so much harm done to so many by just one man.
Churchill and Obama: seldom have two names in one sentence been in such contrast. There stood Churchill, a patriot with a distinguished military record who wanted to take part in the invasion task force that hit the beaches of Normandy only to be ordered not to by the King of England. Churchill, was always at the ready to die for his country. Churchill was striving for world democracy and freedom.
Then there is Obama who is, at the very least, sympathetic to Islam and its goal of global domination.
The most damning evidence against Obama has been his mishandling of the Islamic State group: the most powerful jihad against Christians since the Middle Ages. ISIS stands at the cusp of overrunning and controlling the Mideast in a way that has not been seen since the Ottoman Empire ruled the region 400 years ago.
Does Anyone In Government Read History?
ISIS is unlike any threat the United States has faced. It is determined to build a united greater Arabia, and it may have the petro-wealth and determination to do it. The group’s violence knows no limits. Even al-Qaida has disavowed ISIS.
History is filled with revolutions upon which every cycle becomes more extreme, more violent.
During the French Revolution, Maximilien de Robespierre was a prominent leader who was both celebrated for the reforms he brought and despised for the terror that he helped instill — a terror so frightful his own head was taken by the guillotine.
It was the same during the Iranian Revolution 35 years ago. Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, who went on to become Ayatollah Khomeini’s foreign minister, was part of the group of radicals who overthrew the Shah of Iran. Two years later, Ghotbzadeh was executed, ostensibly for not being radical enough. The same fate almost happened to the first president of Iran, Abolhassan Bani-Sadr, who was also not seen as religious or righteous enough and had to flee for his life to France where he is living out his old age today.
Radical Islam is on the same path and the culmination of it to date has been ISIS, which is not a group of fundamentalists whose goal is to punish Westerners because of their presence in the Mideast but rather a religious, political and military powerhouse that has been growing unchecked since Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq at the end of 2011. Given that Obama announced this move when he ran for President in 2008, all ISIS has had to do was be patient. The result is a military force that is overrunning Iraq’s much larger army and now has some of the best U.S. military hardware. Its ultimate goal is not just to drive Westerners from the Mideast, but to have Islam as the dominant religion with sectarian systems of government around the world.
Bush Broke It, Obama Crushed It
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell famously dissuaded President George H.W. Bush from pushing into Iraq after American forces had driven Saddam Hussein from his occupation of Kuwait saying, “If you break it, you own it.”
Carry the argument over to a piece of fine bone china and Bush did break it. And as wrongheaded as the invasion and unwanted occupation of Iraq were, George W. Bush was willing to own it and fix it as best he could. In contrast, Obama has walked away from the China shop, swept the shards under the rug as best he could, and posted a neon sign that said: “Please loot at your convenience.”
That a fundamentalist group like ISIS is growing in power and prestige must be left at the doorstep of the current occupant of the White House. Some people may say it has happened out of ignorance, while others sympathetic to Obama will say it is because of his background as an anti-colonist. I say it is because he is an Islamist and a radical one at that.
Obama has downplayed the threat of radical Islam inside and outside the Mideast all along. At the Democratic National Convention he declared that al-Qaida is on the path to defeat. How right he was. What we didn’t know was al-Qaida’s defeat was from an almost unopposed ISIS, which was wreaking havoc on Syria. The President had to know this through his daily intelligence briefings. He also had to know ISIS was taking aim at Iraq, a country in which America sacrificed more than 4,000 lives and nearly $2 trillion — a sacrifice made for a country with massive oil reserves lying at the doorstep of even larger oil reserves in Iran and Saudi Arabia.
Of course, Obama has ordered a handful of airstrikes this week as he has hunkered down thinking over this Iraq crisis between golf games during his current vacation at Martha’s Vineyard. And let’s not forget that in June, Obama sent 300 military advisers to Iraq. Three-hundred! That’s a handful more men than George Custer had at Little Big Horn.
Obama: Ignoramus Or Islamist?
I don’t for a moment believe that Obama is stupid, that he doesn’t realize the stakes in the Mideast, including his tepid diplomacy regarding fighting in Gaza. If I am right, and if you agree with me, that only leaves us with one answer: Obama is purposefully letting Islamic extremists overthrow governments that were outlined and established by Western imperialists, regardless of the costs to the world and to the United States.
Forget what the bleeding-heart liberals and the Muslim apologists in the mass media say; growing radical Islamic elements are bent on world domination just as surely as was the Kremlin under Josef Stalin. Their message abounds and volumes have been written about it.
Below is just one example from the Minister of Interior and National Security in the Hamas government in Gaza, Fathi Hammad:
“We look forward to future victories, in which, Allah willing, we will liberate our land, our Jerusalem, our Al-Aqsa [Mosque], our cities and our villages, Allah willing, all this in preparation for establishing the next Islamic Caliphate. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are at the brink of a period of global Islamic culture, whose fuel is Gaza, whose spearhead is Gaza, its Jihad fighters (Mujahideen) and commanders are Gaza, Allah willing.”
Today, ISIS with its army could soon earn $100 million per month as it seizes control of captured oil and gas facilities in Syria and Iraq.
Most dangerous of all is that as ISIS garners greater wealth and more territory, the United States is defended by the beliefs and actions of Obama, a man who is the leader of the free world who has ushered these shameful utterances to a Christian Nation:
- Obama recites the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic.
- Obama praises and glorifies Islam: “convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith.”
- Obama states, “Islam has always been a part of America’s story. There is a mosque in every state in the union.”
- Obama bows to the Saudi king, yet does not bow when meeting the queen of England.
Obama’s words and his inaction against radical Islam show him for what he is, an Islamic wolf clothed as a Christian.
A few months ago, I wondered how much worse can things become given Obama has only two and a half more years in the Oval Office. Given his actions as President and as a sympathizer for radical Islam, things could become much worse.
Yours in good times and bad,
