The Obama Administration’s Islamist Whitewashing Campaign

Pages: 1 2

The OIC, meanwhile, is engaging in a bait and switch game. Reporting after the meeting in Istanbul on what it expected to happen next, the OIC stated: “The upcoming [Washington] meetings . . . [will] help in enacting domestic laws for the countries involved in the issue, as well as formulating international laws preventing inciting hatred resulting from the continued defamation of religions.” In other words, banning “defamation of religions” was still on the OIC’s agenda, even if it had to be achieved through indirection.

About a month after the Istanbul meeting, OIC secretary general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu insisted that “no one has the right to insult another for their beliefs or to incite hatred and prejudice.”

Is Hillary Clinton so obtuse that she fails to understand the OIC’s true intentions? Alternatively, is she trying to publicly assure American citizens that their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and press are safe, while working behind the scenes with her OIC partners to find acceptable ways to stifle speech offensive to Muslims? I think the latter is the case, as the Obama administration examines employing legal mechanisms such as hate speech laws and vigorous enforcement of very broadly interpreted anti-discrimination laws, as well as using the “shaming” campaign Clinton talked up in Istanbul. Her actions are right in line with Barack Obama’s vow to the Muslim world in his June 2009 Cairo speech: “I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam whenever they appear.”

Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom and serving as a commissioner on the official but independent U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, was invited to attend just the opening and closing sessions of last week’s conference. That was bad enough.

Shea was very concerned about the conference after it was first announced last July, seeing right through the OIC’s maneuvering. She came away even more concerned after she heard what was being said at the conference, beyond Hillary Clinton’s platitudes about the importance of free expression and religious tolerance. “It is a scandal that the US is partnering on an issue regarding free speech with an organization like the OIC that is committed to undermining free speech,” Shea concluded.

Here, in Shea’s own words, are some of the things she heard:

[L]egal and security officials of a delegation which will remain unnamed gave a sweeping overview of American founding principles on religious freedom and how they have been breached time and again in American history by attacks against a broad variety of religious minority groups — including now against Muslims. A raft of current cases was mentioned; America’s relative exemplary and distinctive achievement in upholding religious freedom in an emphatically pluralistic society was not. That same speaker reassured the audience, which was packed with diplomats from around the world, that the Obama administration is working diligently to prosecute American Islamophobes and is transforming the U.S. Justice Department into the conscience of the nation, though it could no doubt learn a thing or two from the assembled delegates on other ways to stop persistent religious intolerance in America.

As mentioned above, the three-day Washington, D.C. conference was closed to the public, with very little reporting on what went on – particularly on what transpired between the opening and closing sessions that Nina Shea attended. However, I did manage to learn of one illustrative closed break-out session that confirms Ms. Shea’s concerns. The session consisted of a review by U.S. Department of Homeland officials regarding the training that the department delivers to federal, state, and local law enforcement on “Countering Violent Extremism,” together with a mock training session. It was an exercise in multi-cultural and diversity training. Ignoring the Islamist source of the most dangerous acts of “violent extremism” today, the session showcased the kind of misleading, politically correct training that the Obama administration is pushing, including community outreach programs, guides for community interaction and discussion of purported stereotypes of religious communities.

The Obama administration is helping the OIC to immunize Islamist ideology and law from critical scrutiny, under the banner of combating “Islamophobia.” As a result, our First Amendment right of free expression – starting with expression that the Obama administration and the Islamists “abhor” – are in jeopardy.

    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!!

    One word..obama two words muslim pig.

    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.

    • Alexander Gofen


      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.

  • Asher

    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.

    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.

    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"?

  • FlyanSosser

    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.
