The Obama Administration’s Islamist Whitewashing Campaign

The Obama administration continues to deny that we are at war with Islamist jihadists. Indeed, the word “jihad” itself is forbidden in Obama-land if used to describe the Islamist warriors. At its highest levels, the Obama administration insists on using bland euphemisms rather than accurate language describing the Islamist ideology we are fighting.

As far as the Obama administration is concerned, the global war against Islamist killers is an “Overseas Contingency Operation.” The Fort Hood massacre, in which thirteen people were killed and dozens more wounded by an Islamist jihadist, is described  by Obama officials as “workplace violence.”

In one of the most recent examples of political correctness gone amok, Paul Stockton, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, refused to acknowledge that we are fighting a radical ideology that has anything to do with Islam. Asked during a joint Senate-House committee hearing last week, conducted by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), whether “we are at war with violent Islamist extremism,” Stockton said “No sir. We are at war with al-Qaeda, its affiliates.” Stockton was then asked to at least concede that al-Qaeda is acting out violent Islamist extremism. Refusing to answer the question directly, he stuck to his talking point that “We are not at war with Islam.”

Stockton was spewing his nonsense at the same time as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s State Department hosted a three-day international conference in Washington, D.C., which included her friends from the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), representatives from the Office of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and representatives from countries and international organizations “selected on the basis of their geographic, religious, and political diversity.” It turns out that more than a third of the countries selected were Muslim. The Arab League was represented in addition to the OIC. Religious diversity was not enough, however, to secure the Jewish state of Israel an invitation.

The purpose of the D.C. conference was to discuss ways to implement the provisions of a new United Nations resolution, the product of a deal reached between the OIC and the Obama administration, entitled “Combating Intolerance, Negative Stereotyping and Stigmatization of, and Discrimination, Incitement to Violence and Violence Against, Persons Based on Religion or Belief.”

The deal was for the OIC to at least temporarily put on hold its annual campaign to have the United Nations pass its “defamation of religions” resolutions, in favor of the “compromise” resolution passed by the UN Human Rights Council in March of this year and then passed by the UN General Assembly in November.

The title of the new “compromise” resolution may be different from the OIC’s “Combating defamation of religions” resolutions that the OIC has successfully steered through the UN over the last ten years or so. However, the net effect is that with the new UN resolution in hand and the full cooperation of the Obama administration, the OIC will actually be closer to achieving its objective, which to stamp out speech deemed offensive to Muslims.

Continuing the Obama administration’s submission to the OIC’s wishes, Clinton met with OIC officials in Istanbul last July, at a conference she co-hosted, to embark on what has become known as the “Istanbul Process.” The ostensible purpose of the Istanbul Process is to work with Muslim majority countries, the OIC and other interested nations on exploring specific steps to combat intolerance, negative stereotyping, discrimination and violence on the basis of religion or belief.

Clinton, in full spin mode, insisted that the new UN resolution was totally consistent with the free speech protections of the First Amendment, as opposed to the “defamation of religions” resolutions that the OIC was willing to have replaced. At the same time, Clinton assured the OIC that she was perfectly on board with using “some old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.” She also invited OIC representatives to Washington, D.C. to begin implementing the Istanbul Process, which culminated in last week’s three-day closed door conference.

    What do you expect when you put a clandestine Muslim in the Oval Office and a post menopausal leftist anti-semite hag as the Secretary of State? I am surprised they don't support a Dhimmi tax as well, payable to to the United Nations from the American taxpayers of course.

    • Jaladhi

      No worry – dhimmi tax is coming if he gets four more years!!! But the government pays the dhimmi tax anyway disguised as "aid" to all those corrupt and terrorist Iaslamic countries!! In this respect both Dems and Repubs are alike – morons of first order!!

    Indeed, the department of State and the Surrender-in-Chief are paving the way for delivering America to islam. The America's answer to this treasonous activity must be massive disobedience and exposure of islam.

    - Stop using euphemisms: "Islamist jihadist" means "moslem".

    - Islam (violent and lawful both) is invading the West and is at war against us.

    - De-legitimize, de-spiritualize, dehumanize islam routinely.

    - Display mohammed cartoons, burn and shred korans routinely.

    - Stop being polite vis-a-vis islamic affronts. Islam does not belong here, period.

    When rejection of islam becomes routine and massive, no islamic appeasers in the government would be ever able to sell America to islam.

      FlyanSosser,

      No doubts, the US and all Western governments hate to acknowledge the real thereat of islam. On the contrary: they have made their bet on victory of islam and pave the way for it.

      For fighting invasion of islam here in America, we still have some logistic in place…

      1) We are an exclusively Judeo-Christian nation (as all other Western nations had been exclusively Christian, but are no more). Yet plenty of people here from Obama/Soetoro to Ron Dhimmy Paul are trying to erode our exclusive Judeo-Christian identity. When our true identity gets completely abandoned, we will have no logical argument even to insist that islam does not belong here.

      2) The 1st Amendment right of free speech and reference to truth. As soon as this right erodes completely, we are unprotected, and islam will take over completely.

      Therefore you are correct that you are concerned. You will be even more concerned if you take a look at the comparison table where we are in the moment:

      However in the moment we are still free to fight, and so we must.

    How can the republicans not be talking about all the anti American actricaivities of the democrats? The republicans should be denouncing anti American activities by the Obama administration like the State Dept. participates in as proof of the treason going on at the highest levels of our government. The fact that the republicans are ignoring all the anti America activities of this administration and the targeting by federal officers of patriots and religious leaders is proof that if we are to save America we're going to have to stop supporting either of our 2 corrupt political parties and create a powerful 3rd party that will not only defeat the America haters in government and replace them, but will arrest them and put them on trial for the treason they are involved in against America.

    The anti Christian left along with some libertarians and neocons love to blur the stark differences between Christianity and the evil of Islam.

    Muslims commit their crimes against humanity at the behest and command of their evil founder, Muhammad. These crimes include mass murder, rape, maiming and on and on.This evil can be directly attributed to Muhammad and his wicked ideology. Why? Because according to the Islamic texts, Muhammad commited these evil deeds himself and not only calls upon but commands ALL Muslims to do the same.

    NOBODY ever commited these crimes in the name of Jesus Christ. EVER. There is NO place in Christ's teachings,or deeds that says Jesus Christ ever condones or encourages this kind of behavior, He condems it!

    The attacks against Christianity are repulsive. I've also noticed that the anti Christian crowd are the first to run and excuse the evil of Islam,

    What would happen if say someone were to point out the fact that muslims worship a moon god invented by a pedophilic maniac? In a world were truth matters, they should receive a thumbs up.

    We have lacked leadership on both sides for a long time. Everyone needs to know who empowers us and gives us our Freedom, and prosperity, and it isn't the government. Ween yourselves off of depending on man and stand strong for truth, This communist regime wants to destroy everyone and everything that is good.

    Above article: Stockton said “No sir. We are at war with al-Qaeda, its affiliates.”

    The US/NATO war against Libya PROVED the administration is NOT AT WAR WITH AL-QAEDA! US/NATO took the side of, and FOUGHT FOR AL-QAEDA!

    Why did US/NATO go to war against Gaddafi and Libya? Gaddafi was fighting against Al-Qaeda!

    FRONTPAGEMAG.COM: Admiral James Stavridis, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, and the commander of the U.S. European Command told the U.S. Senate
    that Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah fighters are among the Libyan rebels
    currently receiving support from the US and its NATO allies. This was
    confirmed by one of the Libyan rebel officers, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, who leads one of the Al-Qaeda units.
    (US Aid to Israel’s Enemies, Oct 13th, 2011, frontpagemag)

    U.S/NATO joined with Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorists to wage relentless war for months. Bombing Libya back to the stone age. Making the world SAFE for Muslim terrorists.
    Barbaric Al Qaeda and Hezbollah who MURDER our troops in Iraq were considered desirable for placing in power in Libya. US/NATO have great guilt in making the world a far more dangerous place.

    UK DAILY MAIL
    7,000 held in Libya's new reign of fear and torture

    UN raises concerns of torture and ill-treatment
    Many held simply because they have darker skin

    By Tom Leonard
    24th November 2011

    Thousands of people including women and children are being held illegally and tortured by rebels who helped oust Colonel Gaddafi, according to a UN report.

    Around 7,000, many of them foreigners, are behind bars in private prisons and makeshift detention centres, beyond the control of the new Libyan government and without access to any legal redress.

    The report by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will be embarrassing for Britain and other governments which supported the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime despite concerns about who would take power in their place.

    As an example of the atrocities committed by the rebels, the report highlighted the town of Tawerga, whose inhabitants have been accused of siding with Gaddafi during the civil war.

    The UN said Tawergas are ‘reported to have been targeted in revenge killings, or taken by armed men from their homes, checkpoints and hospitals and some allegedly later abused or executed in detention’.

    The UN also warned that a vast arsenal of surface-to-air missiles, known as Manpads, had been accumulated in Libya, further worsening the security situation there. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2065570/7

    All Muslims are at war with us – they are at war with all non-Muslims for last 1400 years. No body but the politically correct hacks of this country can deny this historical fact!! Therefore all these euphemisms that only Islamists are at war with us or vice versa are totally false and useless and are meant to give cover to all those Muslims who do not openly come out and declare war with all non- Muslims. Besides all Muslims are Islamists anyway!!

    Basically our administration is a kind of Muslim administration and is anti-American. They go and bow to Muslims and criticize everything American. How in the hell Americans even elected such a Prez and his administration is beyond imagination.

  • guest

    Try and get this crap through congress, Hitlery. The only way Obama has left to shove Islam down our throats is executive order. Won't the presidential candidates have a field day with that, if they are ALLOWED to speak out, of course.

    After the next election, lets see who is left standing in the senate. The conservative lost his job, house, 401k, and health care. Lets see how he votes!

  • guest

    ISLAM is the only religion allowed by the politically corrects, or Democrats, if you will. It infests our school system as well as Homeland security and the muslim generals' Dept of Jihad.

  • FlyanSosser

    The article at the link shown below makes a good point when it comes to this subject. Can you say "Unlimited Muslim Entitlement"?

    It appears possible that in the not too distant future it could be a crime here in the United States to criticize Islam–

    Few people seem to realize that a treaty signed by the United States supercedes any state or federal law with contrary provisions. I don't know if a treaty can supercede the U.S. Constitution itself, so I will quote the relevant passage from Article VI: "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursunce thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
