Obama’s New Middle East

Pages: 1 2

This week, President Obama’s Egyptian Revolution bore its first fruit: the election of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Mursi. Mursi, of course, is the same fellow who stated last month, “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal. Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals.” Rallies for Mursi have included calls to make Jerusalem the capital of Egypt, and songs and chants about how his supporters are all affiliated with Hamas.

Yet upon his election, the Obama administration quickly congratulated Mursi. His election, said the Obama administration, was a “milestone in [Egypt’s] transition to democracy.”  Iran apparently felt the same way, celebrating this “revolutionary movement of the Egyptian people… in its final stages of the Islamic Awakening and a new era of change in the Middle East.”

Meanwhile, up north, Syria and Turkey have engaged in a shooting war. Neither side is a paragon.  But after letting Assad have his way for the past several months, the Obama administration is getting ready to slip into that conflict too.  Yesterday, the White House announced that it would work with Turkey and NATO to hold Syria “accountable” for shooting down a Turkish jet. Surely, this will end well. Just as well as Libya, where Islamists, having their way cleared by Western jets, are poised to take over.

The entire Middle East is now an Islamist tinderbox. And it’s not as though Barack Obama didn’t see it coming. When he spoke in Cairo in 2009, he reportedly insisted that official invitations be distributed to the Muslim Brotherhood – one of the only acts in Egyptian history in which the Muslim Brotherhood was specifically included in the political conversation. Tunisia has gone Islamic. So has Libya.

    The June 2012 election in Egypt is identical to the January 1933 election in Germany. The result for the world and the Jews will also be identical.

    Great points Ben. As you step back and look at the world objectively, you see very distinct battle lines being drawn. Countries and ideologies are choosing sides for what likely may turn out to be WWIII.

    And poor Israel is sitting in the middle of it questioning who their friend really are.

    As for the US and NATO, we are slowly being sucked into a fight we are not prepare to wage http://mywtfblog.com/2012/06/that-giant-sucking-s

    I am not sure that we can lay this all upon Obama, although he did set the wrong tone in his first two years in office. Any President, with the exception of Reagan, would have been reluctant to stand up on the world stage and call out the perpetrator of this evil. George W spoke of the Axis of Evil, clearly identifying a major segment of the alliance we face, and was denigrated for his words of truth. Political pressure forced him to downplay the most realistic statement of his presidency.

    Our main enemy is political correctness since it renders our leaders and our citizens incapable of speaking the hard realities of the world. There is a global battle brewing, but we had better defeat political correctness first if we are ever to engage our true enemy; an Evil Axis with Islamist ideology at its core.

    I fully support Israel…Lets do all we can to supply them…Ask David Horowitz will he help to supply their needs through us?

  • Drakken

    The Obummer adminstration has done everything it can to let the islamaniacs take over, this will end in war no doubt about it. When it does, bring back the total war concept and none of this nation building craziness, always remember the muslim is either at your feet or at your throat, always keep those savages at your feet.

    • David

      The Americans are the savages you idiot. Get out of their country, get out of their business, and let them go back to whatever it is that they do. If you occupy their land and try to determine their policy of course they are all going to hate you.

    Sadly,President Obama lives in a fantasy world,which I've said many times before. His foreign policy is based not on reality but a fantasy world. We need leaders who live in the real world not the fantasy one of President Obama.

    • jacob

      You are welcome to believe that OBAMA lives in a fantasy world…

      I rather believe he is the product of the simbiosis of Marxism and Islamism, having shown without a
      shadow of a doubt where his preferences lie and whoever refuses to see it, will learn about at his
      own peril, only than when he realizes it, IT WILL BE TOO DAMNED LATE….

  • hajid

    Isn't it true that Islam hate homosexual people? But why in the picture a man was allowed to kiss Mursi in a kind of intimate way? Is that why Obama and his cronies called MB "moderate Muslims"? No question O is one of them too!

    Do you support muslims in Egypt using apartheid against the ethnic copts?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Have your cleric handlers not explained what the word apartheid means?

    You really need to find out more before you post these things.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    They seem real enough to the folks in Egypt.

    Do you know something they don't know?

    Do you have those little pink ponies in your head telling you things?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    The muslim arabs are, but the Copts are the real Egyptians back to times of antiquity.

    They were converted to Christianity by Ponteus Pilote that judged Jesus. He's a saint of Coptic faith.

    You know so little you're like comic relief.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    And did the little pink ponies living in your head say this?

    Silly muslim monkey.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    From the silly monkey that's admitted he was a paid hack?

    That's funny. "Don't you remember?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Yes, for two reasons. I'm not a paid hack.
    And you do it really badly. I don't.


    You leave me so many openings, it's just way to easy.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Cut and paste?

    That's probably the best you silly monkeys can do.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Your really lame handlers will only allow cut and paste now huh?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    What's wrong, your cheap Iranian computer won't even do the cut and paste now?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    iran isn't known for quality work on electronics, look at the way it crashed with the stuxnet game.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    So then why are you using so much cut and paste? Afraid the iranian computer won't handle anything more? Or won't the handlers let you?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Why are you afraid of the Saudi spending to counter the Iranian threat?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    More boring cut and paste.
    And Saudi Arabia is probably watching you and laughing.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    No, but it's more than you deserve.

    Saudi Arabia must be wondering if all Iranians are as stupid.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Depends, are the Saudi's hiding under them, or are the Jews getting ready to use them for something?

    You are so silly you little monkey you.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    And pink ponies in your head think that's clever.

    Shows how little you know.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Yes, that's what I said.
    And don't you like the Saudi money countering the Iranian threat?

    You silly, silly monkey.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Back to the senseless cut and paste?


    You are so predictable.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Silly monkey, all that cut and paste. I bet the Saudi's are bored by it all.
    You aren't even comic relief any more.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Why? Do you listen to that rug?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    They're busy sticking a sticky bomb on a nuclear scientist's car.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Do your cut and paste commentskeep you company? Or just the handlers that like you on a short leash.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Why? Don't youtrustyourPinkPonies?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger


    It must be hard to realize you're hopelessly out classed by even the rugs under your feet.
