Well, you have to hand it to Obama, he is consistent in his extreme anti-Americanism.
America is firing missiles into Libya just as the Telegraph reported that “statements of support for Libya’s revolution by al-Qaeda and leading Islamists have led to fears that military action by the West might be playing into the hands of its ideological enemies.”
Throughout Obama’s presidency and all of the Islamic revolutions sweeping the Middle East and Africa, he has sided with the Islamic supremacists at every turn. Taking his marching orders from the vile America-hater and Jew-hater, the devout Muslim Sheik Qaradawi, Obama is now paving the way for an Islamic state in Libya. Not that Libya has been good under Gaddafi — hardly. But there are degrees of evil. The situation can always be worse, and little matches the anti-human brutality of Islamic regimes in the twenty-first century.
It’s ironic that Obama has turned against Gaddafi, since Gaddafi has regarded him warmly, saying in April 2010: “Barakeh Obama is friend…He is of Muslim descent, his policy should be supported.” As meticulously documented in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, the ties between Gaddafi and Obama are close and extensive. Back in July 2008, Gaddafi endorsed Obama, going so far as to say: “All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man. They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.”
And Obama’s spirtual svengali and former Nation of Islam adherent Jeremiah Wright went to Libya with Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan to see Gaddafi, as he recalled during the 2008 campaign: “When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gaddafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”
It didn’t, but it should have.
And Obama continues to side with America-haters and Jew-haters. Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. He specifically invited Brotherhood representatives to attend his speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 2009, and during the uprising against Mubarak signaled that he would have no problem with their having a place in Egypt’s new government.
He has backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
He backed the brutal mullahcracy in Iran during the Iranian people’s bloody march for freedom.
He has backed Hezb’Allah in Lebanon.
He has backed Islamic law at the UN, having the U.S. co-sponsor with Egypt in summer 2009 a resolution on the restriction of free speech regarding Islam.
And now he is essentially backing Al-Qaeda in Libya. Al-Qaeda has already established an Islamic emirate in eastern Libya, and is playing a leading role in the revolt against Gaddafi. The Libyan Islamist Fighting Group is also involved. They’re a group that is, according to the Telegraph, “focused only on promoting sharia law in Libya, rejecting a worldwide ‘jihad.’”
“Focused only on promoting sharia law.” So they are focused on spreading honor killing, the killing of apostates, clitorectomies, the notion of women as property, amputations for stealing, stoning for “adultery,” hangings for gays, Jewish genocide, ethnic cleansing, and more.
Why Libya? Why not Iran? Iran has been systematically killing and torturing its people since their bloody march for freedom began in June 2009.
Why did Iran, one of the most dangerous threats to world security, escape criticism, sanction and retaliation for its unmatched putdown of the millions who took to the streets for freedom against brutal Islamic theocracy?
Meanwhile, shortly before America fired missiles into Libya, Hamas fired mortars into Israel, injuring two civilians. Here is more of the poisonous fruit of Obama’s stunning foreign policy failure, unprecedented abandonment of American allies, and absolute sanction of Islamic Jew-hatred.
How one yearns for the Bush days when the world was stable. The Obama presidency is a trainwreck, and we are living in a constant state of chaos and agitation. Going from bad to worse, we are living on the edge of impending catastrophe.
But this week there was one bright spot in the news, and an indication of things to come. Barack H. Obama Elementary School in Asbury Park, N.J. is closing. A school named for an unremarkable community organizer who had accomplished nothing, achieved nothing, and was elected in a marketing coup, had to fail. The Obama election was the triumph of style over substance, collectivism over statism, the moron over the informed.
And now Obama’s fierce Islamophilia threatens free men the world over.
