The Obama Administration’s Genocide Denial

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Suppose that there was a country where Muslims were being massacred every month and mosques and imams were being targeted and destroyed. Could anyone imagine the Obama Administration choosing to remain silent in the face of such atrocities?

A mob attack on Muslims in Burma immediately resulted in a condemnation from the State Department and a call for its government to make more concessions to Muslims. But a car bombing and shooting attack on two churches in Nigeria have not been similarly commented on by the State Department, sending the message that Muslim life is precious, but Christian life is cheap. The Muslim dead of Burma are sacred, but the Christian dead of Nigeria are only more dead infidels.

Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist organization responsible for both attacks, has yet to be declared a terrorist organization by the State Department, despite having carried out religiously motivated bombings and shootings that have killed over a thousand people in the last few years alone. These numbers begin to approach the level of murders carried out by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

The “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act of 2012”, introduced by Senator Scott Brown, mandates that the State Department produce a detailed report that either designates Boko Haram as a terrorist group or justifies why it should not be listed as a terrorist group. A similar bill was introduced by Congressman Meehan in the House. It is a testament to the obstructionism of the State Department and its whitewashing of Boko Haram that such a bill even had to be introduced. While the State Department has played delaying games, the bodies of murdered Christians have continued piling up.

It is also tragically noteworthy that all eleven sponsors of the “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act”, in both the Senate and the House, have been Republicans. Not a single Democrat appeared to be willing to stand up for the human rights of Nigerian Christians. If the “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act” comes down to a vote, that vote should be seen as nothing less than a test of complicity for individual Democrats in the cover-up of Nigeria’s Islamic genocide by the Obama Administration.

Genocide denial pervades not only the Obama Administration and its Congressional allies, but also the media, which continues to promote the destructive myth that Boko Haram is not truly religiously motivated and that it can only be stopped by giving more money and power to the Muslim north.

Had a non-Muslim group carried out numerous attacks on mosques and Muslim worshipers, and then ordered Muslims to leave an area, it is absolutely inconceivable that the Obama Administration and its media allies would deny that these were religiously motivated attacks. It is even more inconceivable that its preferred solution would be to tell the government to stop fighting terrorism. But what is inconceivable when it comes to Muslims is Obama Administration policy for Christians.

At the end of April, Daniel Benjamin, from the State Department’s Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism, testifying at the House Foreign Affairs Committee, denied that Boko Haram was affiliated with Al-Qaeda, while conceding that its members were probably being trained by Al-Qaeda. Benjamin then stated that the State Department’s response to the Islamic genocide of Christians by Jihadists in the Muslim north was “to press for a change to its (Nigeria’s) heavy-handed approach to the security threats in the north”.

The State Department’s approach to the genocide of Christians by Muslims is to press the Nigerian government to scale down its efforts against that genocide. Benjamin’s statement is not unique; it is the consistent policy of the State Department, which is the consistent policy of the Obama Administration, to respond to Islamic genocide in Nigeria by pressuring its government to step down its war on terror.

    "Had a non-Muslim group carried out numerous attacks on mosques and Muslim worshipers, and then ordered Muslims to leave an area"

    Perhaps it is time for the Christrians to finally get some balls arm themselves and DO exactly that!

    • Looking4Sanity

      Most Christian Churches have been infected with soc-ialist pacifists. The result is that they now insult God by the belief that their lives are not worth defending. I'm sorry, but Jesus never said to be a doormat for the evil people in this world. I am in no bloody hurry to become a martyr.

      "He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword" is not a curse. It's a simple statement of fact. There are limitless ways to die in this world. Dying while fighting for your own life is hardly the least honorable path to choose.

      • Herbster

        The Book of Joel, 3: 9,10 states: "Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, I am strong……….

      • Aki

        That is beautiful! You arent any different from those boko haram idiots. Jesus was a pacifist. Turning the other cheek? Ring any bells? You must be of the same bunch who want to edit "too liberal" parts out of the bible. … Like I said no better in any way than islamists.

        • Looking4Sanity

          Does Jesus driving the money-changers out of His Father's house with a scourge (a barbed whip) sound like the act of a pacifist to you?

          Let me be clear. YOU are one of the infected/ infectious idiots of whom I am speaking. A pox and a plague upon your house! You are devoid of common sense, discernment, and any true understanding of Scripture whatsoever.

          you may be right in what you say…but when it comes down to slaughtering of your family….its time to stand up and defend them….
          no?

        • Jeamar

          Did he say how many times to turn the other cheek? The persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is violent; in the US it is quiet political correctness.

      • Drakken

        The time has come to quit turning the other cheek and to pick up the shield and the sword.

        • Looking4Sanity

          To everything there is a season.

      Yes, They ought to stop being Sheeple and quit being herded! Start fighting for rights and life..The only opposition these Muslims understand is a big missile up the —!

  • truebearing

    As a malignant narcissist, Obama has been predictably loyal to his ideological roots and it is obvious that his greatest loyalty is to Islam. He used a false apostasy and membership in a pseudo-Christian church, headed by another supposed apostate, to cloak his "Muslim faith." Obama's Christian posturing is a blatant fraud, like everything else about him.

    Obama was raised by Marxists but behaves more like a fascist, which is more in keeping with that "Muslim faith."

    One thing is crystal clear: the death of any person that Obama doesn't identify with is completely irrelevant to him. His narcissism is at sociopathic levels. Another term to describe him would be evil.

    • intrcptr2

      The ONLY term to describe him is evil.

      Yet how many Americans still consider him a good Christian man? Curious that. If he is, then why do so many disbelieving Americans and Europeans adore him?

      • truebearing

        Stupidity, for starters. Moral turpitude and intellectual laziness for two more. Gullibility for another. There doesn't seem to be any reasons that reflect positively on his fans.

        • Rob

          I would put cowardice at the top of the list. People are afraid to be against a black man. That would make them racist, wouldn't it. That is their fear and they are ruled by it. It's safer for one to stay on the safe, or popular side of an issue or movement. Cowards are followers. They will follow us if we speak the Truth loudly and with conviction!

  • Anamah

    Here we are with this administration loving radical Islamist and still we can't believe such level of reality denial and lack of basic decency and respect for our Judeo Christian values…

  • Gene W 1938

    This administration and the UN "owners" [Bilderberg’s] encourage defilement of Judeo-Christian influence throughout the world. Locally, they dismiss the constitution and patriotic songs [inspired by Godly people]. To me, ‘Christian’ means ‘Christ like’ and I see no evidence of anyone [effort or product] of this administration that can rightfully relate to that title. Note the difference between Bosnia and governments purging Christians?
    Fortunately, we can remain confident because God who authored the Bible [http://jc.does-it.net ] is still in control and He is not worried.

  • aspacia

    I asked the State Department about these massacres during the Egyptian Revolution. Full two page response, but nary any action.

  • dennis metz

    if there is any doubt that many blacks like faraconvict , holder , wright , J@ckA$$on, esp the black panthers who aint afraid to kill honkies. these people have an agenda get blacks and muslims in the majority
    obummer is a devil and demon and his agenda is to make sure whites pay for slavery and what ever else
    people like that have made it their life to help blacks and the rest of America is supposed to sacrafice what ever they have to support whatever blacks want or they are the racist
    this nation is no place for any one that really wants to work and have things esp not white men

  • Asher

    This administration could care less if its Christians, Jews, or Hindus. When Secretary Leon Panetta says: "We have a new defense policy, Shut the —-Up, " you know there is major problems with this White House and Homeland Security…Obama has assigned Muslims to Homeland Security! Senator Feinstein along with other Democrats need to recognize the threat to our country, and dissolve their obedience and loyalty to this President for the Good of America and the American people.

    • autdrew

      That was Gates who said that, Penetta has said that to much info had been released and we need to stop talking about it (Bin Laden) Gates was more to thenpoint IMHO

  • Linda Rivera

    “Religion is not the primary driver of extremist violence in Nigeria”, like Carson, claimed that Nigeria’s “religious and ethnic diversity is one of its greatest strengths” and demanded that the Nigerian government spend more time teaching its security forces to respect Muslim human rights.

    Muslims perpetrate constant violence and terror attacks on non-Muslims and the Obama-Clinton-Holder (George Soros) administration demands that the Nigerian government RESPECT MUSLIM HUMAN RIGHTS. Meaning U.S. leaders demand that Nigeria must RESPECT the rights of Muslims to attack and murder non-Muslims! This U.S. demand is heartbreaking for Nigeria's Christians and goes against everything America has always stood for.

    U.S. leaders are vehemently opposed to human rights for non-Muslims anywhere. The Free World no longer has a leader.

    I am not surprised.
    Obama's muslim heritage becomes more and more apparent.

    The media that lied and elected this traitor has blood on it's hands.

    • ebonystone

      Nor am I. This country has said almost nothing against the Moslem murders of Christians in Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, or Kosovo; so why would it say anything about Moslem murders of Christians in Nigeria? Forty-five years ago, the Christian Ibos of Nigeria tried to secede to form an independent country — Biafra — but the U.S. and the rest of the West did nothing to help them, and stood aside while a million of them were murdered by Moslem Nigerians. It's begining to look like a replay of that episode is coming.

  • V Smith

    Go Burma! Defend yourself! Don't listen to my corrupt government run by a Judus named Obama.Teach those Muslim thugs a lesson! Kick them out of the country if you have to!

  • Questionman

    Obama does NOT hate the Jewish people..half of his administration is Jewish. You hate the black man in office!
    , President Obama is NOT destroying America. Just undoing
    lots of GOP damage created under Bush!
    Barack Obama is a Democrat not a Marxist – he does not believe that society is split into two great hostile camps and so on. stupid racists!
    Show us the TREASON! It is a serious thing to accuse the President of treason. I challenge you to put up your case on here, showing just what grounds for treason you find.

    If this President were actually doing something that equates to treason, it would be the DUTY of responsible persons in the Congress to bring an impeachment action against him on grounds of treason. They have not done so, which means either that there are no grounds for such an action, notwithstanding the unexplicated and reckless assertions of disordered and ignorant persons such as YOU!

    Obama is NOT a muslim, you bigoted POS. Again I was right. Anyone who hates Obama are full blown racists that can't stand that a black man is President of the United States…Mike Lupica AND the yahoo report was right!

    • Gee

      Aiding terrorists is one. Over the objections of Congress he gave terrorists $192 million of taxpayers monies/

    • ebonystone

      You sound more like Answerman than Questionman.

      " responsible persons in the Congress" hahahahahahahaha! It's hard to stop laughing about that line!
      You mean people like John Kerry, Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Harry Reid, Debbie Schultz, Bobby Rush, Charley Range, Sheila Lee? They don't know the meaning of the word "responsible."

  • Indioviejo

    This is just more evidence that our government, The State Department, The CIA, The FBI, and even our military are corrupt and infiltrated by Anti-American, and anti-Constitution moles since the 1930's. Ronald Reagan couldn't clean up the cesspool. How about all the leaked national security secrets with no fear of prosecution? Is this nation to the point where we don't recognize our own interest around the world? We now have a choice to elect a Mitt Romney who knows squat about foreign policy, and an outright enemy of the State like Obama. GHU.

  • Choi

    Those who DEFEND themselves from Muslim Attacks are always cast in the role of "aggressor".
    Prime example is how Israel's LEGITIMATE SELF-DEFENSE is called every name in the book.
    To Jihadis and those who LOVE them ,anybody engaged in SELF-DEFENSE against their Genocide is an Aggressor and/or Terrorist. and "racist".
    And let's REMEMBER what they're doing to Coptic Christians in Egypt and what they do to "apostate" Converts out of Islam,such as that poor soul who was BUTCHERED in Tunisia,and the man in Iran.

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

      So, you're going to start talking about Israel murdering children again?

      You are such a hate filled bigot.
      The kassam rockets are aimed at areas with schools.
      The gaza militants blew up a school bus with an RPG launcher.

      Can't you just find work that doesn't involve you sitting at a desk writing vile comments on line all day long?

    It's time for concerned Americans to call Obama in on his so-called christian identity and denounce vigorously this attrocities. Of course he won't do it but it would be fun to watch him squirming and fidgeting like the traitor and turncoat that he his.
