Islam “Helped to Shape” CIA Nominee John Brennan’s World View
Cybercast News Service ^ | January 9, 2013 | Patrick Goodenough

Posted on 01/09/2013 6:16:38 AM PST by Olog-hai

As a college student in the 1970s, John Brennan, President Obama’s nominee for CIA director, traveled in Indonesia where—he recalled in a speech in New York in 2010—“despite my long hair, my earring and my obvious American appearance, I was welcomed throughout that country, in a way that is a reflection of the tremendous warmth of Islamic cultures and societies.”

Brennan’s Feb. 13, 2010 address to a meeting at the Islamic Center at New York University, facilitated by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), provided an insight into his views on Islam, a faith which he said during the speech had “helped to shape my own world view.” …

As Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, Brennan—a Jesuit-educated Catholic—has played a prominent role in the administration’s outreach to Muslims, American Muslims especially. He has also been a leading proponent of the effort to stop using terms many Muslims find offensive, such as “jihadist” as a descriptor for terrorists acting in the name of Islam.

“They are not jihadists,” he told the NYU audience in 2010, “for jihad is a holy struggle, an effort to purify, for a legitimate purpose. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing holy or pure or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children.” …

What an expert in taqiyyah. Funny how a Jesuit-educated Catholic can so readily defend a nominal religion that denies that Jesus is the Son of God, though . . .

Brennan is proof that useful idiots can be useful to Marxists and Muslims.

“Ignorance is a threat to our national security, prejudice is a threat to our national security, discrimination is a threat to our national security. And those who purport to be religious are frequently the most egregious purveyors of ignorance, prejudice and discrimination – and it must stop,” he said.

Perfect for this administration - muslims are tolerant and peace loving; American ignorance is the real threat.

How long will we be made to suffer these self hating lunatics.

The Muslim in Chief is proposing that three key cabinet positions be taken up by military hating Kerry (State), Jew-hating Hagel (Defence) and muslim-loving Brennan (CIA). The Muslim Brotherhood has not merely infiltrated the White House, they’ve taken it over completely.

“The Muslim Brotherhood has not merely infiltrated the White House, they’ve taken it over completely.”

More than half of American voters and a significant proportion of alleged freepers who sent “a strong message to the GOP” approve.

Amen Brother: And the media is still telling us this Muslim who failed to go to Christmas Services is a Christian.

WTF is wrong with half of the people in this country to elect this POS again?

Does he really have to succeed in destroying us to convince them?

The conquest of America by Islam is almost complete. Our government is now firmly in the hands of Islamic sympathizers. Prepare for dhimmitude

Blaming FReepers?

How about Romney and his surrogates who viciously,
continuously, and without remorse,
attacked Gov. Palin in 2008 to put Obama in
as pRes_ _ent.

Not all freepers, just the ones who elected Hussein a second time to “send a strong message to the GOP”, perhaps for the reason you state.

Was it worth it?

I’d guess a significant share of members of this site who were ardently against voting for Romney (vocally) must have done the hold-nose thingy just to get the incumbent out. Notwithstanding, the vote fraud shows too many signs of prevalence (100% voting for the POTUS in too many districts of NYC, Philly, Cleveland), never mind the obvious overt signs that the GOP-e is firmly in the Obama camp.

“They are not jihadists,” he told the NYU audience in 2010, “for jihad is a holy struggle, an effort to purify, for a legitimate purpose. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing holy or pure or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children.” …

That's a cute argument, except for the fact that our enemies do consider it to be holy and pure to kill infidel (or even insufficiently zealous) men, women and children who, because they are infidels, are not innocent. And since their holy book (which is the law to them) tells them to kill it isn't murder to them but rather an effort to purify the world.

At risk of violating Godwin's law, Brennan's argument about the meaning of "jihad" is like trying to argue before and during World War II that "kampf" just meant struggle and there is nothing to worry about Hitler's use of the word in his book.

From the first time Mohammed raised his scimitar to raid a caravan in name of jihad, the primary meaning has been a war of conquest against us infidels. Any other definition is secondary.

Now just imagine the pants-wetting among the leftists if we constantly used "crusade", but insisted that it was the nice definition.

The Jesuits need to be supressed again.

There are some good Jesuits, but they need a chance to go form another order rather than remain members of this treacherous, devious band of heretics.

Does anyone think that Obama’s choice was an accident? This administration is festooned with Obamabots.

“Does he really have to succeed in destroying us to convince them (half of the people in this country)?”

They won’t even notice as long as they have more free stuff. After all they are variously brain dead, willfully ignorant, proving a point, lazy, party animals, rabid sports fans, or just plain old fashioned stupid. That group has long hit critical mass and the rest of us are reaping their wind.

From B.Rubin:

“...Brennan’s only life accomplishment has been to propose backing radical Islamists. As a reward he isn’t just being made head of intelligence for the Middle East but for the whole world! Has Brennan any proven administrative skill? Any knowledge of other parts of the world? No. All he has is a proximity to Obama and a very bad policy concept. What’s especially ironic here is that by now the Islamist policy has clearly failed and a lot of people are having second thoughts.

With Brennan running the CIA, though, do you think there will be critical intelligence evaluations of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizballah, or even Hamas? Is the CIA going to warn U.S. leaders about the repression against women, Christians, and moderates? Will there be warnings that Islamists are taking over Syria or reports on Islamist involvement in killing Americans in Benghazi? Can we have confidence about U.S. policy toward Iran?”

For the rest:

How unfortunate that Brennnan wasnt in Benghazi on 9-11 to show the attackers his love of arabic culture and values and his mastery of the arabic language

oh wait, didn’t Ambassador Stevens try that?

what a putz, another guy stuck on his own assurance that he is a link to a morally superior culture that hates us because we western snobs just don’t get it

He may meet a similar fate, if he does not exercise prudence. Not that there’s any indication that he is prudent. We may as well put Stevens’ death on his head too, what with his being an alleged “counterterrorism” advisor.
