Why Obama Gave Away the Middle East

Editors’ note: The world is at this moment witnessing a horrific phenomenon: Islamists coming to power throughout the Middle East under the guise of a supposed “Arab Spring” – while the President of the United States is facilitating the entire process. Indeed, President Obama is reaching his hand out in solidarity to Islamists and enabling their solidification of power throughout the region. While displaying a disastrous weakness with Iran and allowing the Mullahs to move ahead aggressively with their nuclear weapon program, the Obama administration is helping the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt and the Taliban regain power in Afghanistan.

In these tragic and disturbing circumstances, the editors of Frontpage felt it timely and relevant to rerun the video of Frontpage editor Jamie Glazov’s interview with Erick Stakelbeck on CBN News in May 2009, in which he discussed his book “United in Hate,” which crystallizes why the Left is in league with our deadly jihadi enemies. The interview explains precisely why a leftist like Obama is pursuing a disastrous foreign policy that is helping Islamists gain and consolidate power throughout the Middle East. Below is the first part of the two part interview. We will run the second part in our next issue. 

Part I:

  • randy

    Again, these goofs want the u.s to stick thier noses in other countries affairs. How,s that working so far? Oh yea 911

    • SHmuel HaLevi

      Actually I have to agree with you a bit.
      Somehow and under the radar we ended up hosting some 9000 dudes that accellerated away from Iraq, missed their boats home from there and made it all the way to Tel Aviv. Apparently your president thought it was cool to let them stay and they are still here.
      How about, in keeping with your excellent view of staying away from where there is no need to be, and we do mind them staying for a few days, maybe it would better for everyone if you please get those fellows some way to vamoose back to somewhere else?
      Much obligued!

    Any student of history should know that thwarting pan-ethnic nationalism yields bad results. In Benjamin Disraeli’s attempt to get the Sinai, he also gave us Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yugoslavia, and communist Ukraine. Why? So that pan-Arabism, pan-Slavism, and pan-Indianism would not take place. They meddled in pan-Germanism too. The result was 20th Century history, Two World Wars and a divided Europe, and a festering swill hole of Ukrainian communism. So why are you complaining that soft stroke pan-Arabism is taking place? You prefer House of Saud? You prefer WWIII?

      What's Ukrainian Communism? Does it come with red borscht, professor?

    • FriendofGaryCooper

      :Any student of history should know that…Benjamin Disraeli gave us…communist Ukraine." Wrong Flippy, wrong. You well know that Disraeli had NOTHING to do with "communist Ukraine." "Communist Ukraine" began with the Russian revolution in 1917, when Russia dropped out of WWI. You should also consider the fact that the British and Americans sent an expedition to Archangel in 1918 to STOP the Red Army; and let the White Army win the Russian civil war. And what about Pan-Germanism? Was that when Churchill visited the Kaiser and tried to convince him to stop the accelerated build up of the German navy? Flippy, I don't know what you are, but you don't know history.

        The collapse of pan-Slavism left eastern Europe a festering swill pit.

        • FriendofGaryCooper

          "The collapse of Pan-Slavism left eastern Europe a festering swill pit." How was Benjamin Disraeli responsible for Pan-slavism? Huh?

        • Advocatus

          Ah, Flipside is back with some more nonsense. Yes, Disraeli, that Jewish convert to Christianity, he is the cause of all ills of the 20th century, who else?

          • FriendofGaryCooper

            Well, you know why Disraeli converted to Christianity? Because in mid-19th Century England, Jews weren't allowed to run for office.

    • reader

      and what about Belorussian Communism? …not to belittle Armenian, Turkmenian and Usbec Communism? Who gave us all that? …Professor?

    • ziontruth

      Nice going with Flipscum here, and Ronulans and Marxists in general: Always blaming everybody except those who are actually to blame.

      Newsflash, blame-America-firsters (and -Israel-seconders): The Muslims are human beings with all that that entails, including imperialist greed that knows no territorial bounds and will cook up any pretext to justify itself. Yes, believe it or not, it's not just a white, Western thing.

      • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

        This is starting to read like Dr. Bronner’s.

        • ziontruth

          I take that to mean you lack an argument against the truths I have laid out. Good.

  • WildJew

    Dr. Glazov, Erick Stakelbeck asked you an important question (paraphrasing), 'we've been talking about the far left, what about the far right'? You did not answer his question. Presumably by the far right Stakelbeck is referring to white supremacists, anti-Israel, pro-Iran Ron Paul supporters and others like them. Frontpagemag has featured writers on this worrisome movement which attaches itself to the political right and the Republican party. Why not talk about it?

  • Dispozadaburka

    The reason why Obama and his administration is supporting the muslim brotherhood is because he has surrendered our country to Islam. The "Muslim Day of Prayer" in September 2009 was a Freemasonic Rite which determines the "Future Destiny" of America. Obama leading the prayers with 50,000 muslim men who prayed "FOR THE SOUL" of America. That is why we are witnessing our foreign policy turning against our allies. That is why he is taking credit for "bringing our military home with HONOR." In Islam, the only way to leave ground troops and leave with honor is to "surrender to Islam." Get it?

    • Asher

      Remember, Obama enabled the Regimes that took over in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and more to come. Ron Paul is also anti-Israel…He would offer no help or no friendship to Israel, one of our best Allys.

  • montlasky

    Regrettably he is right. The leftists in the shape and form of Soros and others is looming large against sanity in the Westen World. This is great for Islam who are taking advantage of an unholy alliance with the leftists. Huge finance is available to the leftists and they are using it against us. Tragically, i don't believe we have a plan to counter this insidious attack on our way of life. Perhaps the left needs an attcak on Iran to make it aware that they are next in the firing line. Something must happen soon to save us from an evil alliance that is hell bent on destroying the world as we know it.

  • LindaRivera

    Obama is a Communist. But first and foremost, he is a devout Muslim. As a Muslim, Obama's allegiance is to totalitarian Islam and global Islamic conquest:

    Obama: "My Muslim Faith" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKGdkqfBICw

    • trickyblain

      You really believe that?

      • NotaBene

        They believe anything that fits their prejudices.

        • Advocatus

          But it's great that you're a fair- and open-minded individual.

  • LindaRivera

    Obama HIMSELF said that he is a Muslim! On youtube!

  • george a. way jr.

    unfortunately no matter which side of the coin you look at it's going to end ugly for humanity!!! , we "do not " have the capacity to govern ourselves at any level !!! , just look into man' past for the proof to that statement !!! , we as a human race without question have a death wish and unfortunately we now have the capacity to reach those lofty goals of killing all of humanity !!!!! , so keep arguing among each other over all aspects of things that really in the end do not matter !!!! without our "CREATOR" running the show we are destined to die a very horrible death and actually we have earned it !!!!!!!!!!

  • NotaBene

    Gave away the Middle East/ When did we it belong to us?

    • Advocatus

      Who is "us"? And how far back in time do you want to go?

  • speedyjerry

    To show how stupid Obama and his over anxious pro Arab Czars are consider this. Had he waited until Oct. 2012 to dump Obama-Care on us un-employment would have dropped and the economy would have recovered. The Tea Party would have had no steam and the mid-terms would have turned out differently, most likely he would have not lost The House. 2012 would have been a sure thing for another four years then he could have abolished the entire Republican Party leaving the door wide open for Hillary.

    The entire Soros Immelt Media has put into power the worlds most evil Dictator in History. I been studying everything Obama has done since childhood and nne of it's good. Go to speedyjerry.com to see some of what is happening to America and the world because of it.
