Islam & Obama: The Truth
That Jihadists demonstrate dwindling fear of Barack Obama portends a crisis of international proportions that threatens global stability. As Obama's domestic economic policies wreak havoc on families and our nation, his kid-gloves foreign policy has now proven to be deadly with the loss of American lives. Still, Obama rejects that the uprising in the Middle East is anti-American even as his image is burned in effigy by Islamist extremists along with the American flag.
Jihadists have bided their time and gaged the current American president. Notable is Obama's peculiar reticence to admit to the American people who the enemy is -- Islamist extremists -- even when that enemy openly and repeatedly threatens destruction of the United States. Former United Nation's Ambassador John Bolton says evidence of that is Obama treating the violent deaths of four Americans in Libya as a "criminal law" matter rather than an organized terrorist attack by mobs armed with RPGs, mortar rounds and foreign agitators as reported by Libyan authorities.
For four years, Obama has weakened America economically, militarily, and globally. Obama has made America increasingly vulnerable. So swiftly it has occurred that many assign premeditation and not naiveté. Despite Obama's grandiose assurances that his personal charm would bring peace to the Middle East, average Americans held no disillusions as Barack Obama stirred up the Arab Spring that toppled regimes -- leaving a gaping leadership void – that allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to quickly step-in and fill. No one needed an intelligence briefing to see it coming. Yet, Obama disclaims the obvious. He defended his actions, claimed the Brotherhood sought only democracy, then went golfing, campaigning and hanging with celebs while ignoring intelligence reports regarding ominous threats to American interests worldwide.
Citing additional threats to security at home, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) questions this President's inexplicable behavior. Bachmann demands to know why the Department of Homeland Security, under Obama and Janet Napolitano, categorize "Christians, American Constitutionalists, and Patriots as potential threats" -- while labeling the so-called "precursor activities" of terrorists and jihadists as "cultural behaviors." Bachmann reports that Homeland Security may currently employ eight Muslim Brotherhood members in key, sensitive positions. She further wants clarity regarding why Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, whose family members reportedly have a long and deep history of high-ranking leadership within the Muslim Brotherhood, now serves as Clinton's closest advisor.
In regard to the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama cannot plead ignorance to its threat. CAMERA Senior Research Analyst Steve Stotsky wrote a widely read article eighteen months ago titled, "The New Leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in His Own Words," which includes an excerpt of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie's first public address:
[The Arab and Muslim regimes] are disregarding Allah's commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah's word will reign supreme and the infidels' word will be inferior... They crucially need to understand that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.
As pointed out in my previous article, "Obama & Islam," Obama unleashed uprisings in the Middle East while implementing a radical, Socialist agenda back home. His overall intent is not as bifurcated as it may appear. The Islamists are waging a war of religion while the radical left is waging a war of ideas. The mutual goal is the toppling of a republic based, Judeo-Christian founded and Constitutionally-grounded America. Jihadists want America to become an Islamic state like Iran, whereas the left wants a "transformation of America" to a Socialist/Marxist nation. Both systems devour individual rights and freedoms. Key to both movements is total elimination of all belief systems counter to their own. Were they to succeed, as natural enemies, Islamists and Socialists will eventually target one another. Radical Islam condemns to death all that reject a belief in Allah. Socialists/Marxists constitute much of America's Progressive-Left and have consistently legislated God out of American society, seeking to become god to the masses.
President Obama is the titular head of the Progressive-Left. President Obama understands Islam having studied the Koran in Indonesia. Part of the curriculum was that The Twelfth Imam or 12th Mahdi is the Islamic savior -- its Islamic messiah. Islam requires that in order for the 12th Imam to reveal himself, the world must be in global war. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly believes that he has the divine mission to "hasten the return" of the 12th Mahdi. Destroying Israel, then America -- erupts the world into the chaos needed for the Mahdi's return.
Christianity came into existence some 600 years before Islam. The Christian Messiah is the Savior Jesus Christ. Islam reveres Jesus as a lesser prophet and not God, which puts Islam at inextricable odds with Christianity. Iranian President Ahmadinejad believes the "Mahdi" or "Twelfth Imam" will appear publicly during a time of great disaster, with Jesus at his side, to bring peace to a war-torn world. It is said that the 12th Mahdi will take Jesus to Mecca to replace the Bible with the Koran so that Christians worldwide will convert to Islam. A "Muslim anti-Christ" is also to surface in the world and falsely convince Jews that he is their "Jesus the Messiah" that they have long awaited.
An "Islamic Jesus," it is said, will kill all Jews and behead anyone worldwide who does not accept Islam as the only true religion. The Islamic Mahdi will set-up his kingdom in Jerusalem, establish a worldwide Caliphate, along with Shariah Law, and rule the world. Homosexuals will be killed and women will remain as property and oppressed. Such belief is a driving force of today's war on non-Islamic nations; an ancient war based on fundamental Islam that has entrenched the globe in a war on terror. Moderate Muslims declare that only extremists hold such beliefs.
The funding by Iran of the upheaval in the Middle East, the positioning of radical Muslim groups in governments across the region from Lebanon to Egypt cannot simply be dismissed as a war of ideologies between the West and the Muslim world. By Ahmadinejad's admission, Iran's role in the turmoil in the Middle East is to set the stage for the return of the 12th Imam. Obama's years studying Islam should have taught him that he cannot schmooze leaders like Ahmadinejad, gain their favor, and unmoor them from what they believe is the only reason they exist on the planet. Islamic radicals seek world chaos targeting first Israel and then the United States. The radical-left within Obama's own party seeks a "transformation" into Socialism with a dependent citizenry existing in a damaged economy with limited freedoms. Though he tries to understate them, Obama clearly understands the ultimate motives of both threats to America. His inability or unwillingness to address both presents a profound danger to the American people.
