Obama’s Deadly Mideast Delusions

Pages: 1 2

When the Obama administration banned the terms Islamic extremism and jihad from US national security documents back on April 7, 2010, the United States began a new approach toward the war on terror. No longer would the ideological or religious elements that had driven the 9/11 attackers be emphasized.  Any terms insinuating the religious zeal that inspires and has inspired suicide bombers from Gaza, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere across the world, have been hastily filed away in the cabinet known as the ill-conceived Bush Doctrine.

Instead, the Obama adminsitration formulated a new set of terms to showcase the White House’s new and improved outreach to the Muslim world. On the same day that the Associated Press carried the ‘banned terms’ news release, the assistant to President Obama on Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, John Brennan spoke with law students at New York University, where he referred to Jerusalem by its Arabic name, Al-Quds.

A month later on May 28, President Obama informed the world that the “war on terror” was over. “Our long-term security will not come from our ability to instill fear in other peoples but through our capacity to speak to their hopes,” the US President explained in a message introducing his administration’s new national security strategy.  Terms like new partnerships, multilateral diplomacy, and tough engagement surfaced in the document, all leading to Obama’s point that “to succeed, we must face the world as it is.”

It would be safe to surmise that in Barack Obama’s world, there are no ideological-driven terrorists (only al-Qaeda), jihad against non-Muslims does not exist, and Jerusalem is a city exclusively rooted in an Islamic past, whose Jewish heritage starting from King David in 1000 BCE, bears no relevance at all to the Middle East today.

But for the residents in the southern region of Israel, the U.S. President’s attempts to recreate a new Middle East through glossed-up verbiage remains a very distant fantasy.

For the 111,000 residents of Ashkelon, located 21 kilometers (13 miles) away from the Gaza Strip, this past Friday, July 30, was a terrifying day. An Iranian Grad missile launched from Gaza exploded in the heart of a residential neighborhood, damaging buildings and vehicles and sending two civilian Israelis hospitalized for shock.  A rocket alert that had residents racing to shelters, prevented more serious casualties.

The following Saturday night, July 31, an upgraded Qassam rocket fired against Sderot directly struck a children’s hydrotherapy rehabilitation center in Sderot’s Sapir College, setting off the Color Red alarm.  (Sderot Media Center documented the terrible damage, available on CNN). The center, which provides therapy and workshops for hundreds of special-needs kids from across Israel until 10 at night on weekdays, was closed because of the Jewish Sabbath.

    Brennan is a dhimmi tool.

    Mr Barack Hussein Obama,better known as mister no brains,is the biggest
    treath for the survival of the Jewish state of Israel. I have said it time and time
    again he;Barack Hussein Obama, loves moslims more than Jews.
    Knowing whom his friends are he seems to be an anti…….no I wont say it
    but I'm thinking it. Please mr moslim lover,leave the oval office before your
    fellow democrates,who put you there will kick you out.

    I can't figure out why people keep calling it an Arab/Israeli conflict? I mean Christian Arabs and Jewish Arabs have no problem with Israel. It is only Muslims and not just Muslims from Arab countries but all Muslims that have a problem with the existence of Israel.

    Moreover, it is not really a conflict more than it is a jihad being wage by the Dar al Islam via their Palestinian proxies against the Dar al Harb reestablished by Jewish infidels in the heart of the Dar al Islam. Further, this jihad, like the global jihad is as well, is permanent and will continue perpetually as long as Israel doesn't commit national suicide or otherwise until the Dar al Islam is rendered too weak to pursue jihad.

      Take it a step further and realize it is not even the Muslims (individually) but rather the twisted Socio-Theocratic Political System of Living called ISLAM that is the problem. The insidious and unrelenting push to have the balance of the world succumb to Sharia is what we need to fight on ALL fronts. We will never win fighting against a belief system ~ Impossible task. But we can fight against the incorporation of Sharia Law. THAT is the teeth of Islam. Remove it and Islam is a non-issue. Then we can start to help the Muslim women win back their womanhood and the Muslim men to face their own inadequacy.

        BINGO TO ALL …. the "jihad" is against ALL infidels. If you believe in humanity, the rights of women of children, THEN you CANNOT believe/agree w/Sharia Law. There should be OUTRAGE from the media and this Pres. However, a muslim cannot kill another muslim so NObama tries terrorists in civilian court w/a jury instead of a military where he would have to sign the death certificate. Read DHIMMITUDE – obamacare has a religious clause. Guess what – Sharia law considers "insurance" hareem/illegal forbidden. Muslims are now exempt from sanction/penalty. We the infidel pay for the Muslim. Obama kned this – it is the Islamification of the USA – and the Democrats will not report this. This is why they are trying to get rid of business; to continue to create ONE world domination. THat is why the Mosque at Ground Zero should NOT be erected. This is a large dog urinating in public and seeking domination ….. are we LOST OUR MINDS?

  • george rennit

    Whatever you want to call it……….it's coming, and we are going to have to deal with it. If we value the future, our childrens future, all the discussions, intellectual debates etc. will mean nothing when this violent pestilence is flooding our streets. If we are not prepared to defend what is ours, we will lose it.

  • Tracey – MI

    http://www.usadsa.org … The Democrat Socialists of America work inside the DNC … w//links to International. Media is NOT reporting this. Barney Frank is a Known/listed Socialist. he wrote Freddie/Fannie and know Financial Reform. DSA wants ONE WORLD DOMINATION …. To achieve: attack values, morals, religion monetary systems. Create pandemonium/Uncertainty. Judges are legislating law – CAL FED now ruled marriage is not between a man/woman. What it's between and man and sheep. How many wives ….? THis is crazy they are trying to take us away from CORE values for THEIR purposes.

    Buraq Hussein Obama was a practicing Muslim all through his entire youth in both Indonesia and Hawaii, a Muslim throughout his undergraduate years at Occidental and at Columbia, all through Law School at Harvard with his expenses paid for by Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Muslim and Black Nationalist who was a “mentor” to the founders of the Black Panther party, and even after Law School until he moved to Chicago in his thirties until he allegely converted to Black Liberation Theology under the anti semite anti American racist Reverend Jerimiah Wright. His hostility to Israel, his Cair Dhimmi speech, his overtures to Iran still ongoing, his political correctness and in ability to condemn radical Islam and Jihadism, his low bow before the King of Saudi Arabia, and his support for Great Mosque of New York indicates we have a "Meccaian Candidate" in the whitehouse.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    I think we have a traitor in the White House, he employs anti-American leftists and
    pushes that ilk onto the Supreme Court. Is it possible that there is a second
    American Revolution brewing. November is when to say when, war against
    leftism should be top on the next governments agenda, so much to do in so little time………William

  • PiggieOnAHog

    Next, he will ban the use of the word terrorism and declare a victory against all terrorism.

    I am thinking " what is the point? all these people who respond with a comment are but a voice in the wilderness. Most of the West live in a total INDIFFERENCE and all the comments (logicaql as they may be) are reaching but a smaller then small fraction of society and can make no difference at all. I amquite sure that the Islam-Marxist, Ovomit, is here at this time for one EVIL purpose: to hand the West to the Muslims. He is going to succeed with the kind help of the Leftist Media.
