Posted on 03/27/2011 6:14:02 AM PDT by EternalVigilance
George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four introduced and defined Newspeak, a mind-bending lexicon that includes a term worth mulling over today, as the armed forces of the United States wage war in partnership with al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood against Moammar Ghadafi’s regime in Libya. The term to which I’m referring – doublethink – can be found in the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
dou•ble•think (‘d&-b&l-”thi[ng]k), noun, Date: 1949 : a simultaneous belief in two contradictory ideas.
Doublethink is a dizzying concept.
In her syndicated column last week, Diana West examined America’s de facto cross-over to the side of them who wish to destroy us and replace our Constitutional system of governance with sharia (Muslim law). And this changing of sides happened so quickly that if one blinked his eyes, the entire picture of the War was altered in a heartbeat – by a President who engineered the shift to aid our enemies without the slightest regard (again) for the constraints of the Constitution. And as Diana West wrote – Congress is “flat-lined.” Impotent.
Here’s a story from the UK Telegraph, wherein the leader of the “revolt” in Libya, jihadist Abdel-Hakin al-Hasidi, shared his words of wisdom:
“In an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, Mr al-Hasidi admitted that he had recruited “around 25″ men from the Derna area in eastern Libya to fight against coalition troops in Iraq. Some of them, he said, are “today are on the front lines in Adjabiya”…”
Indeed. And our Naval aviators are now flying sortees in support of this man’s jihadist army. But let’s go on, shall we:
“…Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters “are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists,” but added that the “members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader”…”
You see, good Muslims wage jihad against Infidels (that’s us, folks). Terrorists kill innocent people. Infidels are not considered to be innocent within the doctrine of Islam. And the “invaders” to which al-Hasidi alludes are – the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Wait. There’s more:
“…Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against “the foreign invasion” in Afghanistan, before being “captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan”. He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008…”
What the Telegraph isn’t telling you here is that word has it that al-Hasidi was one of the Gitmo detainees who was released from custody as a non-threat.
So, let’s look at this Libyan civil war situation in an Orwellian doublethink context:
1) Al-Qaida operatives killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Spetember 11, 2001, plunging the United States into this endless war.
2) Al-Qaida is a first-generation spawn of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood wants the caliphate restored and sharia imposed throughout the entire world.
3) America is at war with al-Qaida and “radical Islam”.
4) Al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood are bad.
5) Moammar Ghadafi is killing his own citizens to suppress an al-Qaida revolt.
6) [Alleged] President Obama says that Moammar Ghadafi must be removed from power.
7) Al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood are fighting against Ghadafi.
8) [Alleged] President Obama sends the U.S. armed forces to assist al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood in overthrowing the evil Ghadafi by providing air cover and bombardment with Tomahawk missiles.
9) Ghadafi is bad.
10) The United States has joined forces with al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood in the fight against Ghadafi.
11) Al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood are good.
Are you dizzy yet? Someone hand me the Ibuprophen.
Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood Links Deserve Second Look Chris Carter
11 Jun 2009
The Speech delivered by Barack Obama may have been intended to strengthen ties with the Muslim community, but it also served to add another chapter to Obama’s troubling history with the world’s oldest international terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Islamic revivalist movement Muslim Brotherhood (MB), founded in 1928 by the Egyptian schoolteacher Hassan Al-Banna, seeks to establish a global Islamic Caliphate ruled by Shari’ah law. MB has spawned such terrorist groups as Hamas which is actually the Palestinian chapter of MB Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Al Qaeda. Despite being officially outlawed in Egypt, MB politicians who run as independents account for 88 seats, or just over 20% of Egypt’s parliament. In addition, MB has either founded or is linked to most major U.S. Muslim organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the Muslim American Society, and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The MB denounced violence back in the 1970’s and now claim that they stand for democratic reform, but they support suicide bombings and are tied to international terrorist attacks.
At least ten MB members including Mohammed Saad el-Katatni, the head of MB’s parliamentary bloc were invited to attend the speech at Cairo University. The Obama administration claims that invitations were sent out exclusively by Egypt’s Cairo and Al-Azhar Universities. However according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, the Egyptian daily Al-Masyroon reported that the invitations were extended at the request of U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Margaret Scobey.
Reporters questioned Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough whether or not MB members were invited by the administration, but McDonough would not give an answer.
I can tell you that invitations have gone out to the full range of actors in Egyptian political society, responded McDonough. Apparently to the Obama administration the full range of actors includes those who see suicide bombing as the greatest of all sorts of Jihad in the Cause of Allah.
It is disturbing that McDonough would not deny inviting members from the organization whose founder said, It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet. One can only imagine that a Christian or Jewish supremacist group set on world domination would not be invited to attend, so why should a Muslim group get a free pass?
McDonough’s reaction is even more disturbing when you consider the 1991 MB memo on organizing members in North America that said all members must understand their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
The MB, CAIR, and ISNA all praised Obama’s speech and welcomed the new approach. Part of this new approach is Obama’s promise to ease the ability of Muslims to give zakat, or the Islamic duty of charitable donations. The ISNA said in a statement that they applaud the President’s recognition of the problems Muslim American charities have been having and the hardship that resulted from the ‘rules on charitable giving’ by federal agencies. We welcome his commitment to ensure that Muslim Americans can fulfill their zakat duty, a religious obligation to provide the needy with financial support.
Contrary to Obama’s (and ISNA’s) claim, however, there are no rules making it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. What rules are in place are laws prohibiting material support to terrorist groups. As we recently witnessed in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, zakat is used to finance terrorism. HLF considered the largest Muslim charity group in the U.S. sent at least $12.4 million to the MB-linked Hamas. In fact, Shari’ah Law mandates that a portion of zakat goes towards financing jihad.
Yousef al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of MB, wrote in 1999 that Declaring holy war to save Muslim lands is an Islamic duty, and fighting for such purposes in those occupied territories is the Way of Allah for which zakat must be spent. As of this April, 27 Islamic charity groups including the three largest in the U.S. had either been indicted or designated as sponsors of terrorism by the Treasury Department. Obama’s promise may have pleased MB, but opening the door for American dollars to finance jihad is abhorrent.
The president even stated that he would be working with the MB-linked Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) on fighting polio. While fighting polio is a worthy cause, working alongside an organization that could seek to imprison or execute those who speak against Islam is not. The OIC is is the same organization that has been seeking a United Nations ban on defamation of religions which is a treaty that will silence any speech deemed defamatory by Islam the only religion specifically mentioned in the treaty. For example: if a Christian in Pakistan is asked whether Muhammad is a prophet and responds no the Christian is guilty of blasphemy. According to Pakistan’s Shari’ah court, the punishment for blasphemy is death. The plan is derived from the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which states that all rights are subject to Shari’ah law, and makes Shari’ah law the only source of reference for human rights. Despite the fact that Obama calls himself a committed Christian, it is inconceivable that he would work alongside a 57-nation Christian alliance that silenced free speech and sought the death penalty for members of other religions for denying the divinity of Jesus Christ.
During Obama’s 2008 campaign, his Muslim outreach coordinator had to step down after less than two weeks on the job. Mazen Asbahi previously sat on a board of Allied Assets Advisors Fund (AAAF) along with Jamal Said, the imam of a Chicago mosque that supports Hamas. AAAF is a subsidiary of North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which was founded by MB. Both Said and NAIT are unindicted co-conspirators in the HLF trial. In addition, Asbahi was formerly a leader in the MSA while attending the University of Michigan, and had joined four other MB-linked organizations. Asbahi stepped down after he was exposed by the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report.
The Obama campaign had to cut ties with Robert Malley, a member of Obama’s Middle East advisory council, when the Times of London disclosed that Malley was in regular contact with members of Hamas. Malley was involved with the terrorist group through his role at the George Soros-funded conflict resolution think tank, the International Crisis Group. Malley’s father Simon was a personal friend of the late Yasser Arafat a MB member and Robert wrote several op-ed pieces with former Arafat adviser Hussein Agha.
He has no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future, said an Obama spokesman when Malley was cut in May, but Malley was apparently back in Obama’s good graces when he was dispatched by the president-elect to meet with Syrian leaders following the election in November.
In a 2004 fatwa, Qardawi stated that Muslims killed in action against American troops in Iraq are martyrs given their good intentions since they consider these invading troops an enemy within their territories but without their will. As Commander-in-Chief of the forces whose death the MB is advocating, it defies reason that this administration should be working alongside them on so many levels.
Scott Wheeler, the Director of the National Republican Trust summed it up: The American people did not vote for President Barack Hussein Obama to make peace with Muslim terrorists.
Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity, and he feels his angst against white and America....
On top of it, Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe, I call him a ghazi.
One of the prettiest sounds on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007
The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.
His biological father was a Muslim.
Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.
His stepfather was a Muslim.
As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.

On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.

Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the days end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
Obama tasked NASA with a mission of Muslim outreach.
Obama referred to his faith as my Muslim faith gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?
Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today
Well, not quite 0bama. He doesn't believe that Islam is evil and need to be eradicated.
I think it refers to the victims, not the perpetrator.
I don’t mean to trivialize the extensive analysis in this article, but anyone who has attempted to have a serious discussion with a Liberal/Socialist/Statist/Communist over the course of the last century has had to contend with “doublethink.”
It is a prerequisite for adherence to such notions.
Race, my brother Jimmy pointed that out to me yesterday. Zero does not identify with America. His actions are to do everything to reduce the United States of America to a level, fair, playing field.
Nice, comprehensive list of Zero’s true leanings. The guy is either a barely-in-the-closet muzzy or a raging islamofasciphiliac.

Sharia can tell us how this story ends.

Why are we fighting for the rebels in Libya?
For nearly 20 years, we’ve willfully blinded ourselves to the Rosetta Stone that decodes our enemy’s war doctrine. But the jihad (or shall we call it “kinetic Islam”?) is catalyzed not by al-Qaeda but by sharia — by Muslim law. So is the “Arab Spring,” now playing in Tripoli (and elsewhere) after rave reviews in Cairo.
I have been opposed to our country’s starting a war against Libya. And starting a war is exactly what we have done, exactly what we would call it if the shoe were on the other foot — the “kinetic” and “limited” obfuscations of intervention proponents notwithstanding. My opposition is fourfold.
First, as a constitutional matter, Congress has neither declared war nor otherwise authorized combat operations. When there has been no attack on the United States, no imminent...
Do-gooders in a land with no good guys

That’s great news. Who doesn’t enjoy volunteering other people? The Arab League, for reasons best known to itself, decided that Col. Gadhafi had outlived his sell-by date. Granted that the region’s squalid polities haven’t had a decent military commander since King Hussein fired General Sir John Glubb half-a-century back, how difficult could it be even for Arab armies to knock off a psychotic transvestite guarded by Austin Powers fembots? But no: Instead, the Arab League decided to volunteer the U.S. military.
Likewise, the French and the British. Libya’s special forces are trained by Britain’s SAS. Four years ago, President Sarkozy hosted a state visit for Col. Gadhafi, his personal security detail of 30 virgins, his favorite camel and a 400-strong entourage that helped pitch his tent in the heart of Paris. Given that London and Paris have the third- and fourth-biggest military budgets on the...
Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party (PVV) in the Hague parliament gave a speech in Rome last night at the Magna Carta Foundation-an Italian conservative think tank. The topic was timely, “The Failure of Multiculturalism and How to Turn the Tide”. The full text of his speech can be found on The Freedom Party (PVV) website.
Here are some excerpts that indicate the rising public approbation of the twin evils of Multiculturalism and islamization and what Wilders suggests to combat it.
On the dangers of multiculturalism:
I am here today to talk about multiculturalism. This term has a number of different meanings. I use the term to refer to a specific political ideology. It advocates that all cultures are equal. If they are equal it follows that the state is not allowed to promote any specific cultural values as central and dominant. In other words: multiculturalism holds that the state should not promote a

Obama’s Libyan adventure has thrown a confusing wrench into the gears of the liberal reelection machine. Up until then it had been a fairly straightforward campaign, with the media touting an imaginary economic recovery, blaming a Republican congress for obstructionism, flirting with a government shutdown and organizing a labor pushback against economic reforms. Maybe taking some credit for Cairo. Simple enough. But Libya complicates things.
The Nutroots already weren’t too happy about Iraq and Afghanistan, or Gitmo or the return of military trials. The left’s anti-war energy had already completely dissipated. But they could always close their eyes and blame Bush. But there’s no blaming Bush for Libya. For the war without congressional approval or a complete lack of planning, no exit strategy and unclear objectives. This is your War(TM) on Obama(TM).
Still wars boost the White House occupant’s numbers… at least temporarily....

“And now, turning to our policy towards the Middle East and the sweeping changes that have occurred there, I want to again pledge that while America is not willing, after Iraq, to ever again wage war in the Middle East, we are more than willing to assist in refugee resettlement.
“When Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria experienced their Islamist revolutions, I clearly stated that the United States under my administration would respect Arab efforts at self-determination. Never again would the Western world take up the cause of colonialism as a screen for trying to enforce our values on those who do not want them. I pledged that we would respect a Muslim perspective on democracy that differed radically from our own.
“While the United States, given its history, adopted a constitutional democracy, I have always taken the position that we cannot force the rest of the world to act like us, and...

The administration and the UN justified the imposition of a no-fly zone on Libya as an humanitarian intervention. They knew full well that an innocuous sounding “no-fly zone” would start with a major boming campaign. McCain, Lieberman and Graham days before the bombing started were urging military intervention to avoid “a horrible blood bath”. Just last night on Fox News McCain was arguing that the casualties were over 10,000 and would go higher.
Dennis Ross went so far as to say on behalf of the administration,
“We were looking at ‘Srebrenica on steroids’ —the real or imminent possibility that up to a 100,000 people could be massacred, and everyone would blame us for it,”
A few years ago I posted many articles on the truth about the bombing of Serbia in which it was said that Clinton met with Izetbegovic, the Muslim leader and was asked to intervene. Clinton said that if there were 5000 casualties, he could intervene. So...
This Glenn Beck show was done on the Friday before the bombing of Libya started. In it Beck suggested that Obama is much like Rev Wright only he tries to hide his antisemitism. He connects Obama with Wright, Soros and his Open Society Institute, Iran Egypt and Libya. Bottom line is that Obama is realigning the US with her enemies and against her friends like Israel. The first 29 minutes cover it.

First and foremost what's going on with Libya isn't Zippo’s doing it's Hillary's.
Take yourself back 12 years almost to the day, March 1999, the Clinton's began bombing the crap out of the Serbs in Kosovo.
During that campaign the Clinton's climbed into bed with the KLA which was allied with al Quada. Ask Danny Pearl about it. Oh I'm sorry Danny Pearl got his head cut off before he could file his report tying the Clinton's to al Quada.
Everybody for some reason want to believe that the terrorist threats started with 9/11.
Fact is the terrorist threats started in 1991, the same time the Clinton's began their 20 year plan in their quest for power.
It's time for people to wake up.
It's not Zippo that started the lefts collaborating with the terrorist, it's the Clinton's.
Zippo is Hillary’s puppet.
But none of that makes the article “BS.”
That's total BS.
The Clinton's and the left have been collaborating with al Quada since at least 1991.
