Skip to comments.Obama: I Will Stand With The Muslims
Posted on 12/12/2012 10:29:14 AM PST by Starman417
Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, and the Muslim Brotherhood are holding, on December 15, 2012, a referendum on a new constitution.
You know, the constitution that President Barack Hussein vote buyer Obama refuses to criticize.
You know, the constitution written by a committee of 100 selected by the now disbanded Egyptian parliament that, at the time of the creation of the Constituent Assembly, was dominated by Islamists. Fifteen committee members quit the Assembly in protest. Of the 85 members remaining, none were Christians, and only four were women. So much for diversity, one of the Democrats/liberals/progressives (DLPs) most precious ideals.
You know, the constitution that has in it, State shall safeguard ethics, public morality and public order, and foster a high level of education and of religious and patriotic values . Just what does that mean?
You know, the constitution that has no ban on slavery, no article specifically establishing equality between men and women, and includes a clause for insisting on stricter implementation of rulings of Shariah.
You know, the constitution that has an article that bans insulting or defaming the prophet and messengers, but is vague about what constitutes an insult or defamation, an article seeking to ensure peoples dignity by banning insulting humans (whatever that means), and an article that stipulates that the state supports the arts, science and literature and works to implement them in a way that serves society, but fails to define what serves society means, thus opening the door to censorship.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says how people in Egypt view the [constitution] draft is most important. But how will we ever know the Egyptian people view the draft? Thousands of Egyptian demonstrators in Tahrir Square protested against a draft constitution approved by allies of President Morsi. At the same time, Egypts ruling party, the Muslim Brotherhood, is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women and to beat up men who are taking part in protests following a decree by President Mohammed Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.
And we now find that Morsi supporters (the Muslim Brotherhood) are operating torture chambers to intimidate, silence, or kill Morsi opponents. The torture starts once a demonstrator who opposes Morsi is arrested in the demonstration, or is suspected after the demonstrations end. As long as the demonstrator denies that he got paid to take part in the protest, or whether he supports Mohamed ElBaradei, founder of the Constitution Party, or Hamdeen Sabahi, founder of the Egyptian Popular Current, or the dissolved Egyptian Nationalist movement, the torturers beat him.
Despite the DLP protests about the separation of church and state, Obamas silence on this issue (Egypts constitution) speaks rather loudly. Its rather astonishing that Obama and his sycophant followers praise Morsi and his new Muslim Brotherhood-led government that is now making politics and religion one and the same, as Islam is quite accomplished at doing.

The writer would have more credibility if he hadn’t made up the quote that he titled the article on.
may these four years pass quickly
Obama hates Christians, Americans, and Jews.
I’d like to go to sleep and wake up when it’s over.
Are you really that unfamiliar with Obama’s direct statements?
You apparently also didn’t bother even reading the source article, and the comment there which noted..
From Audacity Of Hope page 261:
I will stand with the Muslims should the Political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Some lies are easily countered with facts.
if only he’d go over there and stand with them, and not come back.
Show me, because he never said it.
That link in this article merely went to another article using the same fake quote, in other words, a fake link.
Obama never said it. This has been debunked over and over.
Well, actually he did say it. Perhaps you object to it being taken out of context?
It is a fake quote, so it is not a quote.
I stand correted. You are right that it is not a direct quote. It was a sentiment he expressed in the quote that x provided above. (Thank you, x)
Geeze. I think I’ll just lurk awhile. Nothing is going right! : )
Like I said, a fake quote, yet it has been pushed for years, and people get very defensive about it rather than just going to snopes or one of the other sites, or asking to see the actual quote.
The page 261 quote that you describe as “Obama’s direct statement(s)” does not exist:
His exact quote is:
In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans I have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging.
I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Some “facts” are in fact, lies.
In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
There can be no doubt as to what he is saying here. In the wake of 9/11, his priorities would be to specifically "reassure" these Muslims their "citizenship means something". In choosing "sides", which side do you think he's indicating he'd choose? As far as immigration having a "dark underbelly", the Hawaiian seems to have forgotten about Pearl Harbor.
