President Obama went before the United Nations once again and appeased Islam even as he was denouncing terrorism. A couple of weeks ago the President announced to the world that ISIS "is not Islamic" - even though everything they do they do in the name of Allah, Mohammed and the Quran. The President says they are not Islamic even though their immediate intent (and what they're already working toward) is to create an Islamic caliphate in the region, that includes Syria, Iraq, Jordon, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, part of Egypt and part of Turkey. They are doing it so that they can enact Sunni policies and Sharia law throughout the region. But it's not Islamic. The President said so.
Speaking yesterday at the UN the President said "I have made it clear that America will not base our entire foreign policy on reacting to terrorism. Rather, we have waged a focused campaign against al Qaeda and its associated forces – taking out their leaders, and denying them the safe-havens they rely upon. At the same time, we have reaffirmed that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them – there is only us, because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country."
"Islam teaches peace." Really? Where, exactly, do they teach it because Imams throughout the world, including right here in the United States, are preaching war on the West and death to the infidels, meaning us. Where in those phrases is the word "peace"?
Since he took office President Obama has found it necessary to defend Islam. If he's not a true Muslim, as some people believe, then he has enough affection for them from his childhood that he believes it is his job to promote Islam in this country. From his address when he said "Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers." to his assignment to the head of NASA (when he gutted the space program) to "find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and math and engineering," the President seems to have made one of his goals the spread of Islam throughout the United States. What kind of President does that? What kind of Christian does that?
It occurred to me the other day that Islam is very similar to liberalism in its tolerance practices. They demand that the rest of the world accept and respect their Islamic views - even demand Sharia law be implemented in nations that are not considered Islamic - yet if you voice your disagreement with them or you demand they accept and respect your religious ideas and values you are immediately vilified and called a bigot or an Islamophobe. The more radical members threaten us with death in the name of tolerance and acceptance. Sound familiar?
Even liberals demand that we all accept and respect Islam. Many liberals believe what President Obama is selling - that Islam is a religion of peace - regardless of what their eyes tell them.
Last night on "The Kelly File," State Department spokesperson Marie Harf (the woman I thought should replace Jay Carney as the White House Chief Propagandist) was asked about the State Department and the President touting Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah for issuing a fatwah against ISIS even though that same shiekh had issued a fatwah calling for the killing of Americans in 2004. Ms. Harf said "We need respected voices in the Muslim world to stand up and reject the ISIS ideology."
When Megyn Kelly pressed her on the fact that the shiekh had issued a fatwah against Americans Harf, in her own ridiculous way,said “What we’re judging him by is what he says very openly right now about the fact that Muslims should reject ISIS’s ideology."
In other words - "We can overlook that he wants to kill Americans as long as he's backing us on the ISIS thing."
That is so amazingly similar to the attitude of many liberals when it comes to President Obama when he gets caught in a lie. That motto seems to be "Let's not worry about what he said before - let's just believe what he's saying now."
To be honest - I don't much care what President Obama says about Islam being a religion of peace. I don't care what British PM David Cameron says about Islam being a religion of peace. I don't care what the Council for Islamic American Relations says about Islam being a religion of peace. And I don't care what any of them say about ISIS not being Islamic. I will believe my own eyes and my own research about the subject - and they tell me that ISIS is Islam and Islam is mostly evil. Just because the majority of Muslims don't rise up against us means nothing. That same majority is not rising up against radical Islamic terrorists, which makes them complicit. You either take a stand against evil or you support it. Silence is support in this case.
