Obama’s Anti-Israel Jihad

Greg Sheridan, Foreign Editor of The Australian, recently wrote that “Barack Obama’s anti-Israel jihad is one of the most irresponsible policy lurches by any modern American president.” This is true not solely because Israel has been a reliable and loyal American ally, and is the only free society in the Middle East. Obama’s animus toward Israel and bullying of our longtime ally is irresponsible because the President is simultaneously ignoring the steep rise in jihad activity by Muslims in the U.S. and U.S-born Muslims since he took office.

“Jihad is becoming as American as apple pie and as British as afternoon tea” – so said the American-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi recently. Al-Awlaqi, who was in contact with Nidal Hasan, the jihadist who murdered thirteen Americans at Fort Hood in November 2009, and with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the jihadist who tried to bring down an airplane as it landed in Detroit on Christmas day, had plenty of reason to claim that “jihad is becoming as American as apple pie”: evidence of U.S. Muslims engaging in terrorism grows every day.

Last week a Chicago-based Muslim, David Headley, a.k.a. Daood Gilani, pled guilty to going on a reconnaissance mission to find targets for the devastating 2008 jihad attacks in Mumbai, in which over 150 people were murdered. Gilani also participated in a plot to bomb a newspaper in Denmark that published cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Also last week, Sharif Mobley, a Muslim from New Jersey, was arrested in Yemen over his ties to Al-Qaeda and his murder of a guard in an escape attempt.

The week before that, two American Muslim women, both of whom are converts to Islam, were arrested for their involvement in a plot to murder the Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks for his cartoon of the Muslim prophet Muhammad as a dog. One has since been released, although her mother and stepfather have voiced concerns about how she is teaching her six-year-old son to hate Christians and believe that Muslims must wage war against them.

And last month, a Muslim from Queens, New York, Najibullah Zazi, pled guilty to leading a jihad plot to set off a bomb in the New York subway system. An Islamic cleric, Ahmad Afzali, pled guilty to tipping off Zazi that law enforcement officials had been asking about him, and then lying to them about having done so.

Meanwhile, the Pakistani government has charged five Muslims from Virginia with terrorism after they entered Pakistan and tried to join up with Al-Qaeda and the Taliban there in order to fight against American troops in Afghanistan. Initially the five tried to avoid being charged by explaining that they had come to Pakistan to engage in Islamic jihad, and that Islamic jihad was not illegal in Pakistan.

An undetermined number of Somali Muslims have gone from their new homes in Minneapolis back to Somalia in order to wage jihad in an al-Qaeda-linked group. Bryant Neal “Ibrahim” Vinas, a convert to Islam from Long Island, has been charged with participating in an attack on an American military base in Afghanistan and, in 2009, giving information about the New York City subway system to Al-Qaeda operatives. Another American Muslim convert, Abdulhakim Muhammad (formerly Carlos Bledsoe), murdered Private William Long and gravely wounded Private Quinton Ezeagwula outside the Army-Navy Career Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, in June 2009. Muhammad explained that the shooting was “a jihadi attack.”

And in August 2009, Daniel “Seifullah” Boyd, yet another convert to Islam, and six other Muslims in North Carolina were arrested and charged with “conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons abroad.” On a surveillance audiotape Boyd proclaims: “I love jihad.”

What is Barack Obama doing about all this? Not much besides pressure Israel. The World Tribune reported Thursday that “the administration of President Barack Obama has refused to approve any of Israel’s military requests since it entered office in January 2009. The Pentagon did not announce any weapons contracts to Israel over the last 14 months.”

Does he think that bullying Israel will end the jihad against the United States?

Or does he just not care?

    Looks like the American Helicopter crews were getting combat ethics trianing from IDF in 2007. Yeah Israel and America- two peas in a pod- both have war crimes videos to brag about. You disgusting chicken twurler's need to get the hell out of Palestinian before you completely legitimize Hitler. You idiots are playing into the hands of stormFRONT mag.
    America is sick and tired of Zionism and they don't even know the half of it. Maybee you Zionist should corner the market on Piano Wire and Lamp Posts.

      Funny thing–an extraordinary number of Americans rant against "Zionism," the Israeli "Jewish State." I have yet hear a SINGLE ONE OF THEM EVER rant about The "ISLAMIC REPUBLIC" of Iran. All this, while Israel is an EXTRAORDINARY democracy. If you do not believe that, live there for a few weeks. Then cross over to Gaza or any other Islamic regime. And, buddy, good luck getting a SINGLE ARAB-Israeli citizen to give up his/her citizenship and move to an Islamic regime. Try standing on a corner in Gaza and denounce Islam, see how long you last….

    obamas radical views have harden the palestinians position and made the chance of peace between israel and the palestinian farther than ever.
    until obama started making ridiculous demands on israel the palestinians think they don't need to actually negotiate peace when america will give them a land without having to make any concessions.
    for the first time since the begining of the peace process the palestinians refuse to talk .
    terror in israel is back on the raise in what is starting to be called in israel the obama intifada.

  • Char Tierney

    continued… With horror I realized, Obama does not care if Israel ceases to exist. A world without Israel is simpler for him. To him, the trouble in the Middle East becomes permanently solved. But what about his promises to American Jews: I am your friend, I understand you, etc.?? Simple answer: he is a liar and has been from the beginning. So, beware, Israel. Your most perilous hour is upon you. God bless America and God bless Israel. Be on your knees, lovers of freedom, lovers of God.

    • guest

      I think you are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. It took me awhile before I came to the conclusion that Obama is ACTUALLY an Islamic Trojan Horse. THIS is who is in the White House.
      Remember when he refused to wear an American flag lapel pin? It sounds like a silly thing, but it speaks volumes about the man's attitude towards America. Couple it with his long association with Wright at the Trinity Church and what do you THINK? He only quit THAT when the polls showed Americans were getting suspicious of him. He will blow like the wind–as he did in lying to the Jews during the campaign, saying "Jerusalem must remain undivided." Damn right, because it will be a magnet for Islamic Jihadists and become a battlefield under any Islamic control. They can't even stop killing themselves where they already rule. Obama must be removed. His behavior is treasonous in my opinion and I actually think he has been trying to bankrupt America. P.S. I was NEVER, EVER a conspiracy theorist in my entire life until now.

      And why should Americans or Obama care and support Israel? Living and paying taxes in America I feel like a terrorist sponsor knowing that our government supports this parasitic state. Go Obama! Finally a president that is not afraid to speak up. Enough is enough! We have done too much evil by supporting Israel. For over 50 years the Israelis have demonstrated what they are truly capable of.

    Obama hates Jews and Israel, and that has been clear to me since the Reverend Wright revelations. His anti-Semitic actions/non-actions as POTUS amount to a "personal jihad" – and quite a clever one at that! And no one can say anything for sure about Obama because all his records are sealed – as opposed to previous American presidents. People who dare criticize or make succinct observations are automatically labeled "racist", "fascist" or "right wing fringe". In point of fact, almost everyone I know has at least ONE MAJOR RESERVATION about Obama which would prevent them from ever voting for him again if they did the first time around.

    IMHO, Barack Obama is a Marxist race-baiting Muslim of the first order. There is nothing "American" about Obama, and I think that will be revealed in the fullness of time, grasshoppers!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/ArturusMax ArturusMax

      Oh boy, here we go again – quoting Frank(ly) M'Dear: "Obama hates Jews and Israel, and that has been clear to me since the Reverend Wright revelations. His anti-Semitic actions…"

      Frank(ly) M'Dear, when people hate Israel, they are not necessarily anti-semitic. Do not confuse anti Israeli with anti-semitic or anti-Jewish. For example. 80% of all my friends, and very good friends for over 35 years are Jews. I am not an anti-semite. Do I love Israel because of the fact that I'm not? Hell NO!
      I hate what that country stands for. I refuse to support atrocities, discrimination, apartheid, genocide, occupation, relocation and massacres. And the sad fact is, that that's what Israel stands for.

      Oh, yes, I know what you're going to say now: but the Palestinians… Yes, the Palestinians have a moral right to refuse all of the above and I know of no nation on this planet that was ever called terrorists for attacking and bombing their occupiers. The freedom fighter during the WWII in the occupied European countries were called terrorists – but let's not forget that those that called them terrorists – were their occupiers – the Nazis.

    What do you expect from someone who spent 4 years in Indonesia durning the most informative years of their life with a Muslim father in a Muslim world. Anyone, no matter who it is will have the cultural bias indelibility etched in their mind. He's a Muslim at heart and will do everything he can to promote that ideology under the guise of cultural diversity, multiculturalism or what ever you want to call it. America and Israel have to hang on for a few more years so we can make the change.It's a sad state of affairs we are in right now. I just hope we haven't dumbed our selves down as a nation to the point that the majority doesn't see it ..

  • Jack Ajzenberg

    POTUS cares about the imposition of a transformative metamorphosis and grafting this grand design on to the spine of every breathing American thereby crippling the citizenry forever and ending the American era. All his life he has inhaled grievance and exhales the fire of settling scores. With a jump in his step and a lilt in his voice he spits toxic venom at Americans and dares anyone to call him out. He can barely muffle his disdain for the working man because he has never worked. And if one has the temerity to call his spade for what it is, he responds with cries of racist cheater or has his psycophantic lemmings do it for him.
    With Israel, he knows well what he plans to wrought. He has drunk from the contaminated well of anti Israel screed all his life and poison exudes from his pores. Surrounded by several generations of Israel bashers, he seeks to edify the castle on Arabian sand, the one built by his POTUS predecessors and it is in this sense he is simply the current incarnation of a meandering, uninterrupted line of American presidents playing the Israel card at propitious intervals in their respective presidencies. We know this song. We recognize this dance of American hubris: the boot on the fetching Israeli throat, Israel as the scapegoat, forever a heartbeat from willful and imposed slaughter, perpetually under threat of 'reassessment' or, bridled and harnessed by condemnation and peace processes that are poorly disguised death marches. This year Obama asked that Jews not invoke the 1500 year old call found in the Passover Haggada exclaiming in a single voice heard at Passover tables throughout the planet. We were asked not to say, "NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM', be cause it might offend the arabs in judea and samaria and gaza. The essence in this Obama phenomenon is truly a blessing and there is good in it, good we can believe in for the following reasons. He is a hyper version, a steroid fed caricature of those illustrious POTUS posers and he embodies every anti Israel angle, rectangle and triangulation that ever was. He is Baker and Bush, he is Bush and Gates, Reagan and Rogers, Nixon and Kissinger, Clinton and Clinton and he is also the rest of former U.S. administrations, each in their special and selective way sought to dismember the Jewish state by any means possible and all means available. He is the truth of U.S. policy with a style and a generational context that is all his own. Spawned by malcontents, fed with the bitter arugula of deconstructionism framed in trotskyite-maoist cliche and served on a bed of chomskyite quinoa, he is sated with the banalities and vacuity that govern his generation of post moderns waiting for the Western apocalypse because in it there is a social program to be had.
    There is hope in the age of Obama because the sterility of his acolytes and their mission is transparent, finally, readily so. He is out to screw Israel, the way his predecessors have attempted to. Israel is his transformative foreign policy 'healthcare', in the same way that his transformative domestic healthcare was the culmination, the apotheosis of 60 years of Democratic domestic subversiveness. He brought it home and he plans to do the same with Israel. And there is proven bipartisanship as both Democrats and Republicans have been trying to stick to the Jewish state for three generations.

    Jews must finally say, enough.Enough of this American treachery, duplicity, triangulation and accommodation. Enough of this servility to strategic U.S. interests and enough sacrifice of Jewish lives with the consequence of being accused of imperiling American lives. Enough of being attack dogs when asked and lap dogs when beaten with American ire and recrimination. Enough of playing the victim to the American saviour who sacrifices us at every opportune moment. We have survived the Babylonian bear, the Persian tiger, the Roman Hydra and we will survive the American snake . As we make supplication in our daily prayer to the transcendent, and give thanks for perseverance and survival, we must add prayers, new prayers, that nurture the requisite fortitude to survive the American snake as it slithers its way to immanent decline.
    The Jewish state is well positioned to rise in the community of nations. It has goods and services to sell and intellectual capital to export. Due to our own devices we can make the world safer, better, healthier, cleaner and we do not need the U.S. to acheive any of this. There are capital sources that are not based in the U.S. and given the retrograde, onerous direction of their current and emerging monetary, fiscal, and taxation policies, why would any party seeking capital, look to raise it in the U.S., as there are better alternatives. Israel has technologies in the major industrial, agricultural, information sectors that make existing cutting edge paradigms dull and blunt.
    We do not want fair weather friends. Israel cannot remain on the alter,perpetually under the threat of sacrifice. It is nigh time that we stand straight and face our destiny. It is time that we choose ourselves for the sake of ourselves. Israel can make the world a better place but we cannot do it with the American albatross that binds us to interests that are not our own.

    "Does he think that bullying Israel will end the jihad against the United States?"

    Israel needs to disengage and get off the downward slope of America's morality. America's vision has become cockeyed. It considers screwing an intern an impeachable offense, but ignores a president who chooses to screw America's strongest ally.

    He is also forcing America into a world of dual loyalties. He is "demanding" that Israel give up E. Jerusalem to a new government that vows in its written Charter to destroy Jerusalem's current and ancient host. He has not "demanded" that the wanabe government stop all terrorism, incitement, or the return of kidnapped Israeli. He has not "demanded" the demilitarization of the wanabe government. He has not "demanded" or taken any steps to prevent weapons infiltration into disputed territories before offering favors or having discussions. Cockeyed and shortsighted.

      Obama has proven to all who have eyes to see and ears to hear that is a lunatic that is totally out of control, unfocused as far as reality goes and making decisions in the sands of his mind which will wash him away in the first storm that hits him. He has no firm foundation and those with whom he is scrambling to build an alliance with will be his worst enemies. He will learn that all his charm did not win them over and it was they who had the upper hand all the time, they played him for the fool he is.

    On the other hand, my prayers will be answered when Israel totally destroys Mecca, Medina, Damascus, Cairo, etc., etc., even you will get it. You see, the only reason why you MF's have stood up with terroristic tactics against us, is becouse of our rules of engagement. When the total war comes- and it will-don't expect mercy. Remember Dresden.

      As an European, who is supporting the stop of the islamification of Europe and USA. I certainly feel less encourage to continue supporting Israel and USA when a person like you said" Remember Dresden"

        Sorry for the delay, Ken. Unless you missed your History lessons, how can you deny it was just? Total war means just that. Remember Carthage, or Numancia, etc., etc., and now there's 9 Billion of us. The same guy that invented the pencil, invented the eraser, as he knew that there is no perfection, so having said that, I think Dresden was an eraser of Nazi imperfections.

      Well, my prayers will be answered when the terrorist state of Israel will be totally destroyed. The entire world knows what they are doing. The entire world condemns their actions. They are (the Israeli criminals and government sponsored terrorists) considered the #1 Apartheid state in the world. Those are facts.

      They call themselves: the only democracy in the Middle East, when even a child knows that if you call any country – a Jewish State – the democracy is killed right there, especially when you occupy and relocate people from their own land by force.
      Should we in America start calling our country a Christian State simply because a big majority are Christians? Imagine the outcry from the Jews, Muslims, Atheists and many other groups.

      The sooner Americans realize that their taxes are supporting terrorism and genocide, the sooner we will free the Middle East and the World from evil and terrorism. Sleep well – your taxes are still paying for Israeli bombs, massacres and oppression.
      Write your congressperson and tell them not to support AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee, aka: The Israeli Lobby) #1 terrorism sponsoring organization in the United States.

  • mcastillo

    To fight agaisnt Israel is to fight against God. Israel is the apple of God's eye. Who will not protect the apple of their eye? Israel is God's chosen posession yet Obama thinks he owns Israel. By the way, how did Obama come to believe Israel belongs to him. He thinks all he has to say is, "Israel, give E Jerusalem to Palestine!" and bamm! So it is! Or could it be that he so fears the muslim nations that he thinks that is he holds out the lolipop (Israel) in his shaking hand to these terrorist nations he will pacify them? These terrorist not only hate Israel with a passion but they hate the US equally as much. Doesn't he realize that after they have taken their last lick (if it were possible) of the Israeli lolipop they will then turn their saliva dripping tongues toward America.
