The Business of Arming Terrorists

Obama wants to decree a ban on all assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons, which would apply to rifles and pistols. On this ban, Obama stated clearly:

I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it… I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.

Yet, the Obama administration has been involved in providing weapons to Syrian rebels who have committed many atrocities across Syria. Why must Americans be disarmed and jihadists be given weapons? Americans are simply observing a right, while the Islamists want guns to force Syria into becoming a Sharia governed state.

Leon Panetta, who is now retiring, and General Martin Dempsey, the principle military adviser of Obama, have both revealed that they supported a plan last year composed by Hillary Clinton and General Petraeus that would provide weapons to the Syrian rebels, who are all fighting for a jihadist cause.

John Mccain also supported, and still supports, this plan, saying:

“I urge the president to heed the advice of his former and current national security leaders and immediately take the necessary steps, along with our friends and allies, that could hasten the end of the conflict in Syria”

Though Obama is said to have turned down this plan, he still has supported the Syrian rebellion in a very covert and elusive manner. The current administration has instead used a middle-man: Saudi Arabia, to receive American weapons and then transfer them to the hands of the jihadists.

Michael Kelley of Business Insider reported last year that in

2011 the U.S. sold $33.4 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia and $1.7 billion to Qatar as sales tripled to a record high and accounted for nearly 78 percent of all global arms sales.

And where did these weapons go to? Syria, where they were obtained by jihadists who would not hesitate for a second to behead any American, or any non-Muslim.

As one American official put it:

“The opposition groups that are receiving the most of the lethal aid are exactly the ones we don’t want to have it”

Though the U.S. is not directly sending arms to the revolutionists, it is providing support for shipping small arms such as rifles (which Obama wants to ban in the U.S.) and grenades, and therefore, is nevertheless directly supporting the rebels themselves.

So, to Obama Americans shouldn’t have rifles but Syrian rebels should? This dangerous distortion is just more evidence as to how supportive the current administration has been for the Islamists.

The American government actually expected an organized plan mapped out by the rebels that would show how Syria will be governed in the future. But they haven’t received any future plans, and the reason is that the rebels are using the Americans for the assistance but refuse to reveal their true intentions for a post-Assad Syria, since what they really desire is a Muslim Brotherhood ruled nation.

One Middle Eastern diplomat, who has worked extensively with the C.I.A., has said that there hasn’t been any report by the rebels as to how Syria will be ruled after Assad is removed. In his own words:

We haven’t seen anyone step up to take a leadership role for what happens after Assad, … There’s not much of anything that’s encouraging. We should have lowered our expectations.

Syria is going down the road to become just another state of the future Sunni confederacy that is forming, alongside Egypt and Libya.

Obama said to NBC that:

there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can’t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids.

Yet, his administration is helping ship rifles and grenades to Syria, and is working with the Saudis to provide arms to Islamic renegades who themselves have severe urges to commit some of the most vile violence caught on film.

Just to give you a picture of how these rebels use their guns, here is a video of jihadists executing a Syrian police officer:

Another film I found shows a sadistic bunch of rebels beheading a man in cold blood while laughing and saying “Allah is greater.” If you have the heart for it, the video is found here:

Brutal Beheading Execution Of Prisoner By ‘Free Syrian Army’ *Warning Graphic*

Recent footage shows jihadists executing an innocent civilian. The killer even phones his mother to let her know the sinister act he is about to commit:

The Execution of Sunni Civilians in Syria.

In Syria right now, the most armed entity is the military, the second most equipped are the rebels, and the most defenseless are the civilians. In the midst of the fray, the civilians are the ones who suffer the most, since the Islamists have the weapons, and the military is unable to protect all places of the country at once.

Now, apply this to America. If a full weapons band was ever decreed, the military, the police, and the lawless would be the most armed, and American civilians helpless. Police and military personal would not be able to protect the entire country, leaving the criminals many opportunities to pick out their victims.

Obama and the rest of his leftist ilk keep promoting the idea that guns are the problem, while neglecting the roots of the issue at hand: violent ideologies. All murderers, be they jihadists or spree killers, reject the philosophical idea that life is sacred. Since the Left is not pro-life, they have refused to confront this issue all together, and so are now giving the way to terrorists. The assistance to terrorists in the Middle East will provide confidence for Islamists here in America. Just take a look at the news now. Just this month, a Muslim named Yusuf Ibrahim shot to death two Coptic Christians (Hanny F. Tawadros, 25, and Amgad A. Konds, 27), decapitated them, severed their hands, and buried them in a randomly picked yard. We’re going to be seeing more of this as Islam is allowed to rise and thrive on our insane obsession on tolerance.

As I write in my book, For God or For Tyranny, when the Third Reich reigned, Hitler and his minions established the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938, which prohibited German civilians from owning any firearms. The Left is doing the same thing, but in a ‘nicer,’ ‘gentler,’ more ‘sensitive’ and gradual way. Only those without prudence, foresight, and some historical knowledge on how tyrannies function, would believe that the Obama administration really wants to end crime and protect children (they are all pro-choice).

In our Declaration of Independence, one of the stated reasons for the American Revolution was that King George

excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

If the Second Amendment is ever done away with, the only people that would be helped are the savages amongst us.

Theodore Shoebat is the author of the book, For God or For Tyranny.

    Weapons for thee (Islamic jihadists) and not for law abiding Americans. Sounds strange, but not if ones proclivities are anti-American. As such, this is where it is at –

    Yet, Islamists are full charging ahead, all due to the Islamist-in-Chief –

    Could one of our American friends enlighten me : Is Hilary Clinton supposed to be a Christian? Does she and her family regularly attend Church services or show her Christian beliefs in any other way? If so, how does she reconcile her actions and attitudes towards (or rather against) Christians in muslim lands and her religious beliefs?

    • Spider

      No she worships at the Progressive church of Marx-ism / Socialism just like her hubby Billy Boy and Barry Housein Obozo, Diane FinkStein, Danny Glover, Michael Moore etc. etc. This is where they sacrifice millions of babies on the pagan alter of so called womens rights.

      I think she might have been nominally christian at one time (prior to entering college is my guess).

  • Civilus Defendus

    Those of us with prudence, foresight and some historical knowledge tremble for our nation, doing everything possible through our elected representatives, our freedom of speech, our feet and our pens to see that tyranny does not conquer us. If these fail, what comes next…?

    "Why must Americans be disarmed and jihadists be given weapons?" Because Obama doesn't care, and his backroom – who are setting almost ALL policy – are actually on the side of the Jihadis. It's an "enemy of my enemy is my friend" thing. The hard left hate not just America, but Western Civilization. Obama's mother was a hard left creature; much preferred non-American non-Christian men, married into and converted to Islam and raise Obama as a Moslem in Indonesia. Her fellow travellers on the hard left then ensured that he got a fast track to the White House, done without so much as one year of Governership on his, er, resume. In fact, I'm not sure we've seen this quisling's resume.

      The only thing he had going for him is Illinois state senate and the federal senate. And it's not often that Senators get the big job right out of the starting gate.

  • Gee

    I do have an issue with some of the 'facts' presented, "when the Third Reich reigned, Hitler and his minions established the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938, which prohibited German civilians from owning any firearms." The disarming of the Germans happened in 1928 not 1938 (which was 5 years before Hitler came to power) the Weapons Act of 1938 ARMED the German people – reversing the 1928 ruling.

    I have no problem with the 2nd Amendment – I do have issue with revisionist history regardless of the author

      What you write does not fit with information I saw a few years ago. A quick check of some history shows that the Weimar Republic under1928 legislation compiled "extensive police files on (German) gun owners". Nazis went down the lists to first disarm the Jews, then the German population to ensure Hitler's monopoly of deadly force. Mr. Steven Halbrook also claims the popular European registration lists were obtained by the Nazis in the regions they invaded to roundup any potential opposition. Hitler's 1938 gun legislation was referred to as another gun control law. If it had been, as you claim, used to arm the population, the nurturing of opposition to the Gestapo and secret police, who were doing the disarming, would seem hard to explain. Unless you were referring to mobilization for war by the German military, industry, finance. There seem to be different facts out there. Glad to hear you have "no problem with the Second Amendment". I have a problem with US registration lists.

    RE: "The Business of Arming Terrorists"

    ~Oh dang! I thought this was an article about the IRS!

    And the $1 billion appropriation to HHS – Constitutional Americans call it a "slush fund" –
    ~that the agency can use as it sees fit.

    Half of the funding has been transferred from HHS to the IRS in order to set up enforcement structures for those who fail to buy insurance under the individual mandate.

    Obama is the best friend in the world of Islamic Jihad. Just dont anyone say it or point it out.
    Treason us cool but calling it treason is way out if bounds.
