While he wages a culture war on Christians, the president tells Americans not to worry about global Islam.
Last week Barack Obama marked the beginning of Ramadan by saying to Muslims that the "United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely." While he undercuts Christianity at home -- under his Obamacare abortifacient/contraceptive mandate, resistant Catholic and Protestant schools, hospitals, and charities will soon face crushing fines -- he never fails to tout Islam abroad.
One would think his allies at the ACLU might cringe at his lavish tributes to global Islam as a great and blameless religion and his "Iftar dinners" at the White House. But they don't. His undiluted enthusiasm for Islam, which amounts to a case of Islamophilia, never triggers any of the usual separation-of-church-and-state objections and anxieties from them.
The elite's pooh-poohing of questions from Congressmen this week about Huma Abedin's well-documented familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is an outgrowth of this Islamophilia. Under its chic influence, enlightened Americans are simply not supposed to care about such matters. Rather, they should welcome global Islam's reach into the White House and the State Department. After all, "jihad" is merely a harmless concept of self-improvement, "a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community," as Obama security adviser John Brennan has confidently put it.
Attorney General Eric Holder prides himself on refusing to identify radical Islam as a motive for terrorism. He maintained this view even after self-identified Muslim terrorists killed soldiers at the Fort Hood military base, tried to blow up a plane over Detroit on the day of Jesus Christ's birth, and attempted to bomb tourists in Times Square.

Islam is a “religion” that truly resembles a mental illness.
Part of this, I think, is because it was founded by a madman who was interested only in conquest and domination, but part of it also is because its concept of God is so highly negative. God is so “powerful” that he is unpredictable, capricious, and in the natural world this means that he might suddenly decide that time should run backwards, or that gravity doesn’t exist, for example - or he might decide to destroy the whole thing, because this God is NOT love and doesn’t care about the world and in fact sees it as competition. All Muslims can do is follow their ritual proscriptions, destroy as many of the infidel as possible, and hope they get their 72 virgins. It is a fear-ridden, fatalistic, hopeless life, and that is precisely why Islamic cultures never develop.
