State Department “Ramping Up” Program to Bring Muslim Students to the US


Apparently the United States is suffering from a surplus of skyscrapers and passenger jet planes. The State Department is hoping that their program can stimulate the economy through some creative destruction.

The idea of “education diplomacy” has “really arrived” at the highest levels of American foreign policy, a US State Department official has told an international higher education conference.

Meghann Curtis, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Academic Programs at the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, said that the bureau had always been driven by the notion that “we’d be a more stable, peaceful and prosperous world if we could all get to know one another”. But she said that the issue had recently become “incredibly important”.

Everything is now being sold as diplomacy as long as it involves the Muslim world. We’ve already had Music Diplomacy and NASA Muslim Empowerment Diplomacy.

We’ve had huge numbers of Muslim students in the United States for a while now. Including half the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was educated here. It doesn’t seem to be make them like us. But then again they’re going to schools filled with professors who hate America as much as they do.

Engagement with the Middle East and North Africa, and other Muslim-majority countries, was a top priority to address a “big deficit” in mutual understanding, she said in a round-table session, “The importance of academic exchange in foreign affairs” at the Association of International Education Administrators annual conference in New Orleans.

“I was having a conversation with folks at the White House, in the policy shop over there, and this idea of education diplomacy has really arrived,” she said.

She also said programmes to bring students and scholars from Muslim-majority countries into the US had been “ramped up”.

Considering that’s how Obama got born, I’m sure the White House loves it. Still considering that flight schools are one of the biggest draws for international students and considering that we’re still in a war caught by a bunch of international students, maybe the State Department could be a little less enthusiastic about laying the groundwork for the next phase of the war?

We’ve only got so many skyscrapers to go around and New York City is only now finishing up the replacement for the ones that the last bunch of Muslim students destroyed.

    Obama's State Dept….stupid is what stupid does. Taqiyya to the max!!

    As a 9-11 family member, I'm sure you'll learn from that you too can lose a loved one or two or three with our stupid insane visa policies.

    • truebearing

      Or our entire nation. Obama is turning the US into the Third World, where his loyalty lies (everything about Obama lies).

      Sorry to hear you lost loved ones on 9/11. It must make you incredibly furious to see how Obama is enabling Muslims to infiltrate this nation.

      • Snow White

        AFTER WWII our country set out on a program to bring third world students here to be educated, thinking it would educate and civilize them our generosity would make them love us. What these students did after being educated in atomic energy, space technology, bomb making, etc. was go home and use the technology we taught them to build weapons to attack us. Another unintended consequence of our do good liberal leaders. The fact is that you can't show kindness or be good to most people because they will take it as a sign of weakness and try to take advantage of you.

      One cannot help but scream to the heavens, but we know that Obama Inc has many "helping hands". The chief "helper" is, none other than, Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's Deputy COS, even though Hill is officially "weighing her next moves" – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/15/the-muslim-st

      Simply put, State knows EXACTLY where these "students" are headed; straight into the arms of the MSA, a "student" group I know very well. As such, the hunt goes on…my head hurts!

      We no longer have government by the people it's now we the government, we no longer live in a democracy that our country was founded on. Unless Americans who wish democracy get off their duffs this un American unconstitutional way of government will continue to plague us, ultimately it will destroy our nation, I truly believe that is the intent.

  • tanstaafl

    No!

  • SoCalMike

    The State Dept is occupied territory.
    We need to root out the career parasites sell outs and traitors who think they represent foreign interests like the parasite ABC ran to today for comment on N Korea.
    Retired career State Dept parasite warned sending stealth bombers to S Korea "will make the North mad."

    Wow, we still pay this clown, Joel Whitkin, to make policy pronouncements long after Detente and limp-wristed feeble foreign policies have been discredited.

    We need to take back the State Dept from the traitors, Quislings and squeamish child asshats like Joel Whitken and the rest of the parasites who infest it.
    Maybe rename the place to the Dept of Appeasement and Sell Out.

    When you have a corrupt dictator with a muslim heritage, of course this will happen.

    Just like him giving Libya to Al Qaida for safe haven along with oil revenues to fund terror. And since then Africa has known no peace.

    Obama is predictable, and only the fact we have had failed republican stooges forced on us (Like Boehner) allow this to continue.

      Barack Obama's Top 10 Apologies:
      How the President Has Humiliated a Superpower

      A common theme that runs through President Obama's statements is the idea the United States must atone for its past policies, whether it is America's application of the war against Islamist terrorism or its overall foreign policy. At the core of this message is the concept that the U.S. is a flawed nation that must seek redemption by apologizing for its past "sins."

      On several occasions, President Obama has sought to apologize for the actions of his own country when addressing a foreign audience–including seven of the 10 apologies listed below.

      The President has already apologized for his country to nearly 3 billion people across Europe, the Muslim world, and the Americas. The Obama Administration's strategy of unconditional engagement with America's enemies combined with a relentless penchant for apology-making is a dangerous recipe for failure. The overall effect of this approach has been to weaken American power on the world stage rather than strengthen it. President Obama's personal approval ratings across much of the world may be sky high, but that has not translated into greater support for U.S.-led initiatives, such as the NATO mission in Afghanistan, which is heavily dependent on American and British troops. The U.S. is increasingly viewed as a soft touch internationally, which has encouraged rogue regimes such as North Korea and Iran to accelerate their nuclear and missile programs. As President Obama embarks this week on his second major overseas tour, which will take him to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany, and France, the world does not need yet another apology from the President.

      Rather, it is looking for strong and principled leadership from the most powerful nation on the face of the earth. American leadership is not a popularity contest, nor should it be an exercise in self-loathing. Rather, it is about taking tough positions that will be met with hostility in many parts of the globe. Above all, it demands the assertive projection of American power, both to secure the homeland and to protect America's allies. The following is a list of the 10 most significant apologies by the President of the United States in his first four months of office as they relate to foreign policy and national security issues.

      1. Apology to France and Europe ("America Has Shown Arrogance")

      2. Apology to the Muslim World ("We Have Not Been Perfect")

      3. Apology to the Summit of the Americas ("At Times We Sought to Dictate Our Terms")

      4. Apology at the G-20 Summit of World Leaders ("Some Restoration of America's
      Standing in the World")

      5. Apology for the War on Terror ("We Went off Course")

      6. Apology for Guantanamo in France ("Sacrificing Your Values")

      7. Apology before the Turkish Parliament ("Our Own Darker Periods in Our History")

      8. Apology for U.S. Policy toward the Americas ("The United States Has Not Pursued and
      Sustained Engagement with Our Neighbors")

      9. Apology for the Mistakes of the CIA ("Potentially We've Made Some Mistakes")

      10. Apology for Guantanamo in Washington ("A Rallying Cry for Our Enemies")

    All Muslims are jihadists. Either violent jihadists like AQ or non-violent jihadists that pursue jihad via stealth and deception. Otherwise, per the dictates of Islam, they are blasphemous apostates in which case they must be executed. Indeed, the notion of so-called moderate Muslims is a fantasy that unfortunately most neo-cons and Republicans have swallowed.

    Hence, is our State Department comprised of incompetent useful idiots, i.e., imbecile neo-cons, gullible useful idiot Republicans, and moronic self-hating Dhimmicrats, or is it in cahoots with Islam's stealth jihad?

  • Bob Marshall

    I am reading MUSLIM MAFIA/ Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America. Most citizens have no idea of their success so far.

    • nightlight

      Bob Marshall: The books you shoud be reading before you read "Muslim mafia" are "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades" and "Stealth Jihad", both by Robert Spencer. The first gives the reader the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about Islam and is a prerequisit for fully understanding and appreciating all other books on this subject writen by honest, educated, and reliable sources. The second tells the reader exactly what the Muslims are currently doing here in America (and in many other non-Muslim countries around the world). Like all of Robert Spencer's other works, these two books were very thoroughly researched and present nothing but information that is factual and verifiable.

  • JacksonPearson

    Obama on occasion have mentioned how much Muslims and Islam have contributed to America's success and exceptional-ism. So I searched America's founding documents and can't seem to find any names or signatures such as Muhammad or Abdullah on any of the documents. I have to wonder what and where Mr. Obama was referring to? {{{palm on forehead}}}

    • Michael Copeland

      Islam and Muslims are at the root of America’s success.
      Muslim piracy in the Mediterranean brought about the search for a westward sea-route, causing Columbus to discover America.
      Muslim piracy in the Mediterranean brought about the founding of the U.S. Marines, who responded by blowing up pirate ships, capturing Tripoli, releasing captives and demanding compensation: a strategy that WORKED.

      • Deep Space

        Pirates may've stimulated the actions you state but there's lot more to our success than that.

        • Michael Copeland

          Of course, just humorously making a sometimes overlooked point.

      • JacksonPearson

        My Bad…forgot about knocking the crap out of Islam along the Barbary Coast.

        "Ruthless, unconventional foes are not new to the United States of America. More than two hundred years ago the newly established United States made its first attempt to fight an overseas battle to protect its private citizens by building an international coalition against an unconventional enemy. Then the enemies were pirates and piracy. The focus of the United States and a proposed international coalition was the Barbary Pirates of North Africa."

        Otherwise, Islam hadn't done diddle squat for America's success.

  • truebearing

    Obama dwells in the nexus of evil that he was born into: Marxism and Islam. Both are religions of evil, one being an atheocracy and the other a theocracy. All of his talents are bent on destruction, which is the path both religions travel exclusively, and certainly no one does destruction better than frothing Muslims indoctrinated from birth with hate.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if Obama is inviting depraved, homicidal terrorists into our country, some of us, maybe a great many, will die at their evil hands. It shouldn't be hard to figure out that a leader doesn't do such things to people he cares about and wants to protect (that silly presidential oath). No, Obama's every move screams "I hate America, and will destroy her," but the nation remains disturbingly deaf.

  • kafir4life

    Nice! More muslims to not hire! More muslim stores to not shop in, and more stores to not shop in that hire muslims (an alternative is to take my wine and pork chops to the muslima at the register, and when she has to call for help to scan the items, walk out in disgust). It's all about safety. Sometimes (not always), they explode. Sometimes is enough.

    I am 100% convinced that President Stinky (bo) is MORE than willing to sacrifice an American city or two to his jihadi pals if he thinks he can advance his agenda.

  • Rita

    This usurper, Obama, has now lost really all shame, doesn't even find it necessary any longer to be hypocritical at all times…his true colours showing through now to anyone but the wilfully blind.

  • Gamaliel

    Why isn't the State Department concerned about all the anti-Jewish hate these Muslims students bring to campus?

    • Ar'nun

      Because all the anti-Jewish hate these Muslims students bring to campus is overshadowed by the Professors preaching it in class.

      • defcon 4

        It's all part of the same chorus. Of course the professors are usually smart enough to disguise their rank antisemitism as anti-zionism. I'm disgusted that my tax dollars are supporting the leftist traitors who run out nation's unis.

  • Dennis

    The only answers I can see are:

    1. SECESSION of one or more States.
    2. PETITIONING Alaska to take all non-Muslims who wish to relocate there to COME ON UP!
    3. VOTERS MUST EDUCATE THEMSELVES ASAP AND SELECT REPS WHO WILL STOP ALL IMMIGRATION until an objectively rational process is developed and voted upon.
    4. OR…..end all welfare, subsidies, social programs, etc. and become, again, a small government, rule-of-law, capitalist economic giant intolerant of SLAVERS, FANATICS, and RELIGIOUS MURDERERS.

    Why do Muslim Students want to be here at all since, to them, it appears WE – as opposed to THEM, THEIR COUNTRIES, and THEIR CUSTOMS – are barbarians and infidels?????

      Move the al aqsa mosque to Alaska.

      • nightlight

        Dennis; The Muslims want to come here to get a better education than they could get in their own countries, to use that education to destroy us, and because they have discovered that those in power here in America are more than willing to be their useful idiots.

  • Indioviejo

    This is just a symptom of the overall decease. Yesterday I saw a middle age man dressed in his Pakistani Kamisse and a cap on his head, with a full flowing beard, and walking in the parking lot of the local supermarket as easy as any normal human being would be in America. He didn't even raise an eyebrow from passers by. About a year ago I saw a Muslim cabbie pull over and whip out a prayer rug and start praying in the sidewalk of the same city. I commented with a stranger about it and it almost led to blows. The point is that all this multiculturalism has prepared us to being conquered by this foreign horde. We no longer feel we can make a difference in saving our own country, yet it is easy to boycott the satanic horde in our midst by just NOT doing business nor even talking to the invaders. And we need to cut off relationships with people who are not on board with the boycott. I think it is the least we can do before we go any further.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Too bad you didn't have your dog with you to sniff the ass lifter on the sidewalk.

      That would have pissed him off.

    • nightlight

      Indiovijo: Excellent comment! And I have had the exact same experiences with seeing Muslims in my area and trying to talk to others about them. it's not just our dangerosly unhealthy obsession with multiculturalism but our equally dangerously unhealthy obsessions with diversity, inclusiveness, and political correctness that are enabling the Muslim to take over our country.
      Have you read Robert Spencer's "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades" and his "Stealth Jihad"?

  • Ar'nun

    For decades now our Universities have been educating Middle Easterners. I am not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, but seeing how Universities are a hotbed for anti-Semitism, it isn't helping anyone other than the Muslim Middle Easterners. No one ever seems to ask why they don't attend Middle Eastern Universties. And that is because those Universities are only good if you want to be a future Imam or Cleric or other type of religious scholar. I learned when I was in Kuwait that if they want to learn anything about Science, they come to the US. If they can't get into a US school, some will settle for a school in Europe. Even Mohammed Morsi is a US University Grad. UCLA I think.

  • Arlie

    Today there is a video posted at Western Journalism with part of 0's June 2009 speech in Cairo. He said he promised to ensure that Muslims could fulfill "Zakat". Zakat are their rules for charitable giving. There are 8 categories with the 7th category being: Islamic Military Operations – (Zakat supports terrorist). So, if 0 supports Muslims fulfilling Zakat than HE IS SUPPORT IT TOO. This we know by how he is sending foreign aide and arms to terrorists and the Muslim Brotherhood. Now he will be allowing Saudi's and others back into America. 0bama IS evil, IS being led by evil and should be immediately arrested…forget impeachment..he should be in jail forever!!

    Abu Baseer in London: “One of the goals of immigration is the revival of the duty of jihad and enforcement of power over the infidels. Immigration and jihad go together.

    Department of State: “we’d be a more stable, peaceful and prosperous world if we could all get to know one another”. But she said that the issue had recently become “incredibly important”…
    She also said programmes to bring students and scholars from Muslim-majority countries into the US had been “ramped up”.

    Koran 9:5 “Kill Jews and Christians wherever you find them”.

    It's "incredibly important" for the U.S. Dept of State to help Muslims OBEY commands in the Quran and mosques to wage jihad against hated infidels by importing as many Muslims as possible to greatly increase jihad.

    Founder of Islam, Mohammed: “I have been made victorious with terror”, “Wage war on the infidel and kill them until Islam is dominant” (Koran 8:39)
