President Obama Doesn’t Care About Iran

Posted By Matthew Vadum On February 5, 2010 @ 7:15 pm In NewsReal Blog | 1 Comment

Intensely focused on his socialist legislative rampage at home, President Obama doesn’t seem too interested in foreign policy at all.

Perhaps that’s why he’s asleep at the wheel regarding Iran. He hasn’t offered much encouragement to those pro-Western elements in Iran who would like to overthrow the evil, murdering theocratic regime. He hasn’t done anything about Iran’s effort to acquire nuclear arms. He hasn’t offered encouragement to Israel whom Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vowed to wipe off the map. He hasn’t pressed Iran to stop supporting terrorist organizations and outlaw regimes.

Basically, President Obama’s done nothing about Iran. It’s not that he’s pro-Iranian: He simply doesn’t care. There are no votes for him in Iran — unless the vote-manufacturing enterprise known as ACORN chooses to open branches there. (How about it, Wade Rathke?) To Obama, radically transforming America is far more important than protecting America from threats abroad.

Glenn Beck expressed his concern about President Obama’s Iran policy –if one can even call it that– on his TV show. He noted that Ahmadinejad “announced Iran will deliver a ‘telling blow’ to global powers on February 11 (the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution)” and this week succeeded in launching a rocket into outer space.

But technically, if Iran can send a missile up into space and have it explode, it could shut down our electronics; that would do more damage to us than any conventional bomb ever could. Imagine the chaos if an EMP [electromagnetic pulse] bomb took all of our computers, phones, TVs, lights and flipped them off? America would be out of business.

Ahmadinejad gave a speech at the UN in September in which he said, “Hasten the return of Imam al-Mahdi.” According to Beck he was referring to the 12th Imam. Added Beck

The “12ers” believe that the Mahdi, or 12th Imam, will soon return. This is end times, stuff. They are different than most Muslims because they believe that the return needs to be hastened. It’s not a good idea to hasten the return of the Chosen One, because to do that, the world has to be in chaos, carnage and even genocide — so the Messiah comes and brings peace. “12ers” are so dangerous that at one point the Ayatollah Khomeini banned them. So when President Ahmadinejad says he wants to vaporize Israel, he’s not just trying to trick people; it’s not a power bluff. He thinks he’s fulfilling prophesy by doing that. He thinks he’s the John the Baptist for the coming of the Messiah.

The ”12ers” believe “we — the U.S. — are the antichrist,” he said. The “12ers” believe world must bathe in blood to hasten the return of the promised one. “And when the Mahdi comes, he will set up a global government in Babylon with one religion and they will kill non-believers,” Beck said.

These are the dangerous fanatics President Obama doesn’t give a damn about.
