Sunni Cleric: Allah Will Send an 'American Gorbachev' to End the American Empire Soon
MEMRI TV ^ | May 19 08

Posted on 05/19/2008 12:38:51 PM PDT by camerakid400

Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese Sunni cleric Sheik Muhammad Abu Al-Qat', which aired on Al-Manar TV on May 10, 2008:

Sheik Muhammad Abu Al-Qat': Today, on May 10, 2008, at 22:50 – through Al-Manar TV – let me bring good tidings to the Muslims: Allah willing, the American empire will very soon collapse. They object to any talk about the destruction of the state of Israel.

Interviewer: And they are celebrating its 60th anniversary...

Sheik Muhammad Abu Al-Qat': That's not the issue. We say that Allah willing, within 10 to 12 years, America will collapse. This won't happen as a result of war. Not at all. Allah will send to America an American Gorbachev, from within. Gorbachev, who brought about the USSR collapse, was one of them. Everybody knows this story. An American Gorbachev will surface in America, and he will destroy this empire.

...and the Shiites of Iran and Hezbollah will eat you like the little lambs for slaughter that you will become.

Except Obama is a pro-"gay" liberal who doesn't know what happens after you die or what happened before the "big bang." That's a strange guy for an islamic fundie to pin his hopes on.

Then again, the muzzies in the USA are still not rocking the boat with regard to their decadent quasi-allies (unlike in Europe where the homosexuals have had to affiliate with the Right to protect themselves).

The sad thing is, people who vote for Obama truly believe that they are helping to bring about an end to American "imperialism".

The headchoppers want to destroy our country. The liberals want to destroy our country. Is that why there is such a strong alliance between the left and the jihadis?

I’ve heard B. Hussein called a lot of things, but “American Gorbachev”? That’s a first.

A sane government policy would be to expel all who profess the beliefs of the cult of death.

What Empire is it this nutjob is speaking of? The moment I hear people on the left or in the world refer to America’s “Empire” I immediately know whatever else they have to say is pure rubbish. When your whole argument starts out with a false assumption there is nothing for the rest of it to stand on no matter how good it might sound to your fellow Marxists.

I don’t want to be an Empire, but the truth is, we do have a military presence in 126 countries.
We may be able to scale that back a little it seems.

Is the number of military deployments the basis for whether or not the term ‘Empire’ applies? How many deployments are we allowed before we ‘go over the line’? If we are invited to a location for mutual protection purposes does that still count against our total?

The definition of empire hinges on the concept of sovereign control not scope of military influence. Other than a handful of U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands) the U.S. does not exercise sovereign power over any foreign governments even in those places where our military is deployed.

“The definition of empire hinges on the concept of sovereign control not scope of military influence.”

By that definition, the Athenians never had an empire, but they were eventually defeated by Sparta and its allies, and stripped of their ability to milk the allies of Athens for tribute.

has been borrowing itself into an ever deeper financial hole for some time now, and wasted considerable amounts in the process, both in public sector spending, and in severe misallocation of capital in the private sector (housing, and related commercial real estate).

This Muslim cleric anticipates an unhappy outcome of this extended process, and wants to be in a position to claim that this is all because of Muslim wisdom and the providence of Allah. If you want to see a different outcome, consider returning to the conservatism which rejected global domination and valued a free, un-encumbered republic that trades freely with neighbors without insisting on making those neighbors over in its own image.

RE: BARRYSTROIKA

Excellent!

You have named the secret meaning of change

Perestroika:
Mikhail Gorbachev's program of economic, political, and social restructuring which ultimately led to the end of the Soviet Union

BARRYSTROIKA
Barack [let no infidel see behind these brackets] Obama's program of economic, political, and social restructuring which aims to end nasty Amerika.

"Balahahahahahahahahaahha! Plahahahahahaha! Daplahahahahaha!

Now, thats really a funny name to use to label a future American President; a totalitarian like that idiot Gorby who was able to screw up a perfectly good scam that he inherited whole. He started reading his own press; the media fell in love with him and he read himself into history! Too bad Gorby, nobody will remember his name. When do we even hear his name anymore.

He was just a "another Dicktadder" who fell in love with himself and lost an empire.

Hilaryist and funniest thing I've turd today!

Its sad because these paltrons actually believe that there is the smallest moral equivalence between our two forms of government. Too bad America hasn't had any absolute rulers like they enjoy on the rest of the planet!

Funny, alarmingly stoopid, funny stuff!

Are We Really Ready for a Regular B'M; Brace Yourself Obama To Make Black History Month a Year

It's not Barak Hussien Obama it's just B'M for short. A simple acronym for a bowel movement. Don't miss the importance of regularity. A regular B'M who'll become a fulltime apologist on behalf of white folk feeling guilty for slavery and give away billions to the phony under class as the price this nation has to pay for "white guilt" every morning regular as clockwork for 8 long years? Can our nation survive a regular BM?
