Skip to comments.Ousted Maldives President Claims Obama Approved Islamist Coup
Posted on 04/20/2012 5:43:11 PM PDT by Nachum
The Washington Post reports that Mohamed Nasheed, the former president of Maldives, claims the United States has given legitimacy to the Islamist coup which deposed him.
Mohamed Nasheed won the presidency in Maldivess first multiparty elections in 2008, after a lifetime advocating democracy and human rights and several long stints in jail.
Less than three years later, he was forced to resign by an angry mob of police officers and soldiers, in what he says was a coup engineered by his autocratic predecessor.
We have to have an election, he said in an interview while visiting the Indian capital, New Delhi. In the absence of that, Islamic radicals are gaining strength in the Maldives.
Nasheed, whose multiple instances of torture and imprisonment prevented him from witnessing the birth of his daughters, removed various Islamic prohibitions that created legal inequality for Maldives citizens.
He noted that he also restored diplomatic relations with Israel that had been suspended for three decades under Gayoom, advocated closer ties with the United States and Maldivess giant neighbor India, introduced benefits for single mothers and tried to protect women forced by Islamic radicals to wear burqas and veils.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I didn’t know that the Argentine Government was Muslim!!!
This would certainly explain why Obama was thinking about Maldives, rather than Malvinas...
Yes, events like this convince me that obama will be soundly defeated in November, as he doesn't have the consciousness required of a patriotic, American leader. He is, in his heart, an American-hating muslim and not fitted to be our president.
Ah, but he has enough resources to stay in “office” for an extended period...I fear...
Let me guess....Muslim Brotherhood!

Obama probably really thought he was giving a boost to the Malvinas Islands’ liberation from Britain, since he never liked Britain, anyway.
This is awful, but it just goes on top of the ever-growing stack of “accomplishments” of our Dear Leader.
I believe it. I haven’t seen anything that contradicts the notion that this Administration favors Islamist governments over more secular governments in the Muslim world. Considering Obama had a Muslim father and a Muslim stepfather, this isn’t surprising.
And yet people here are openly cheering for an Obama second term!
WAKe the F up people!
My guess is that this was partly to provide for the new US (non) UAV base now operating in the Maldives.
But it seems puzzling that Maldivian Muzzies would be more understanding about that than non-Muzzie Maldivians.
I mostly do not understand this.
On January 20th when he leaves office he will be arrested for treason, given a fair trial, and disposed of in the traditional manner reserved for traitors.
In my dreams, anyway.
Mitt Romney attacked Gov. Palin and her children
through surrogates in 2008 to give the world
Obama the Tyrant Moslem.
Today, Romney is guaranteeing the same thing.
I wish I could believe that Obama’s base cared about more than their next “government” (someone else’s money) check.
