Skip to comments.Obama’s Dance With Radical Islam
Posted on 07/02/2014 3:19:32 AM PDT by markomalley
Last month, President Barack Obama chose to support and fund a Palestinian Authority (PA) government that includes Hamas, a U.S. and EU-designated terrorist group that calls in its charter for the destruction of Israel (Article 15) and the murder of Jews (Article 7). Also last month, Obama freed five senior Taliban terrorist commanders in exchange for an American serviceman who may have been a deserter.
Obama could have cut funding to the PA, which would have made sense strategically, and could have supported a close, long-standing American ally, Israel. He could have refused any exchange of senior Taliban leaders. Why didnt he?
Because he supports engagement with radical Islam not merely moderate Muslims, Arab liberals, or secular reformers. Al-Qaeda notwithstanding, Obama believes radical Muslims are potential allies and friends. This is confirmed by his decisions at every important point in his presidency.
Thus, when Obama addressed the Muslim world in Cairo in June 2009, he insisted on inviting members of the parliamentary bloc of the (then-banned) radical Muslim Brotherhood over the objections of U.S. ally, Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak though the Obama administration later denied that it did so. (A furious Mubarak refused to attend.)
It was no secret that numerous surveys had shown before 2011 that large majorities of Egyptians favor discriminatory sharia, the death penalty for apostates and so on meaning that it was almost certain that radical Muslims would triumph in elections. Yet, when a groundswell of opposition to Mubaraks rule arose in February 2011, Obama called for Mubarak to step down now while his spokesman called for early elections involving non-secular actors.
When the Brotherhoods Mohamed Morsi was, unsurprisingly, elected president, Obama did not discontinue arming the regime, even though its future policies were as yet entirely unknown. Yet, when in July 2013, Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian military under Field Marshal Abdul el-Sisi, Obama suspended military aid.
The Iranian regime is one whose leaders have called for the destruction of both America and Israel. Tehran has been developing a nuclear weapons capacity that would give it the means to act on these designs. Yet, Obama has not sought to undermine or replace the regime. In 2009, when Iranians were brutalized on Tehrans streets for protesting the rigged re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Obama did not call for Ahmadinejad to step down he pointedly refused to get involved, saying its not productive, given the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling.
For over a year upon becoming President, Obama prevented any new congressional sanctions on Iran coming to a vote. He subsequently diluted and delayed those that in the end passed. The 2010 UN Security Council sanctions Obama did support did not cover Irans vital oil, financial, and insurance sectors, and included huge exemptions for numerous countries like China, which has huge contracts in Irans energy sector developing oil refineries, and Russia, which supplies S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Iran.
Then, in 2013, having at least tightened UN sanctions, Obama agreed to immediately undo them, granting Iran some $20 billion in sanctions relief (not merely $6-7 billion, as the Administration initially claimed) under the terms of the Geneva interim agreement. That agreement permitted Iran to retain intact all the essential elements of its nuclear weapons program its Arak plutonium plant; continued uranium enrichment; intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) programs, even retention of its enriched uranium stocks. (Iran was simply required to reduce them to an oxide which can be restored in weeks to weapons-grade uranium.)
The conclusion is clear: Obama, contrary to his oft-repeated promise to do everything, everything to prevent Iran going nuclear, is willing to let Tehran become the next nuclear power. Thats why in July 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the U.S. would extend a missile shield over the Middle East if that occurred. It also explains why Obama in 2013 nominated as Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, an outspoken opponent of stopping Iran by military or even economic means.
In Syria, Obama is arming the opposition to Bashar Assads Baathist regime. It might indeed be welcome if Assad fell, but some 80% of the forces fighting him are Islamists, including al-Qaeda. Where will that leave Syria and the region should Islamists succeed in replacing Assad?
Turkey long ceased to be a close U.S. ally. In June 2010, it opposed U.S-supported UN sanctions on Iran. In 2012, it excluded Israel from two counter-terrorism conferences in Istanbul, and Madrid. Its Islamist Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has called Israel a terrorist state and Zionism a crime against humanity. He has also a record of anti-Semitism that goes back to the 1970s. Yet, by Obamas own admission, Erdogan is one of Obamas closest friends among foreign leaders.
Now, having chosen not to penalize Mahmoud Abbas Fatah/Palestinian Authority for forming a unity regime with Hamas, a package of $440 million in U.S. aid to the PA is set to proceed, even though we now know that Hamas members kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teenagers.
The record shows that Obama favors accommodation with radical Islam, their regimes and their leaders. He has less interest in traditional U.S. allies and is willing to pick fights with them or abandon them.
Valerie Jarrett The Muslim Agent Who Pulls Obamas Strings Moles in the W. House
So? Somebody is finally saying it? We have a muslim president who is preparing our country for a permanent take-over by muslims. Obama cares not for blacks, veterans, homosexuals, or anyone else. He cares only for muslims. Is it too late to take our country back?
This is because in his heart Obama is a Muzzie himself. His name is not Barack HUSSEIN Obama for nothing. He will always side with the Muzzies just as he himself said in his own book. Plus remember, his closest sidekick and advisor is Valerie Jarrett, who was raised by her family in Tehran, Iran. That’s where her affections lie.
Plus Obama has hired into his regime many Muzzies with terrorist ties and shady affiliations in the Middle East. It’s a cabal of Muzzies that have infiltrated the WH. We have a Manchurian candidate for President, one whose own records through all stages of his life have been removed, destroyed, hidden, and otherwise made unavailable with over a million dollars worth of lawyers’ fees spent to hide Obama’s past. And this man is out to destroy our Republic and our American way of life. A pox on anyone who voted for or still supports this man.
I see a future war in this country with Americans ARMED to the teeth BIGTIME. The Muslims are in for A VERY RUDE WAKE UP CALL .
O-hole isn’t dancing with radical Islam, he’s twerking with it...
In answer to your question...”Is it too late to take our country back?”
IMO, yes, it is too late.
WE have allowed the enemies of FREEDOM to infiltrate to the highest levels of government and it’s OUR fault.
Maybe someone with more time this morning can continue the long list of ‘WE have allowed...’?
Off to the woods...panax
Obama supports radical Islam at every opportunity. He is one of them.
When will the call for Obama’s removal reach crescendo?
Where will he be reading the teleprompter when his Ceausescu moment occurs?

The is no “radical islam” There is just islam. It is radical. It is dangerous. It is a death cult. You give it cover when you try to minimize the problem!
You are wrong
You need to get out more, to travel abroad
The Sunni Muslim President is doing all he can to help build the caliphate. http://shoebat.com/2013/09/13/obama-longer-democrat/
...........Because he’s Muzzie hissself, silly.
‘Too late?’ Maybe, but not without a LOT of bloodshed.
Everyone should forward this thread to their entire lists. No sense in talking to ourselves.
“Its the exclamation point at the end of a long sentence saying that Obama is helping our enemies to invade and attack this country. Not his country. Our country.
He is a foreign enemy combatant, and I dont understand why the military hasnt labeled him an enemy. The lawful thing, IMHO, would be for the military to detain him and take him to Gitmo.
He has harbored Ayers and Dohrn who are communist terrorists who made attacks to try to overthrow the US government.
He was a signed member of The New Party, which was to carry out through legal means the overthrow of the US government via Cloward-Piven.
The Egyptians say he is a signed member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and every action hes done suggests thats true - including having Lois Lerner give tax-exempt status to a MB branch even while harassing US citizens for political gain.
He has armed, trained, financially supported (to the tune of 8 billion, according to the Egyptian military), hidden, let free from captivity, and given political cover to Muslim terrorists all over the world. He quickly deported the Boston Marathon Massacres Saudi person of interest before the Boston Police, CIA, or FBI could arrest him - and had somebody change the known terrorist classification from this Saudis file. And then he made sure that this guy was at a July 4th White House celebration for US military members so the guy could gloat - just like they did when photos of Michelle Obama visiting this bomber in hospital made it into the Muslim world.
He has given aid to Hamas and Hezbollah, allied with the Mexican drug cartels, by refusing to allow the US - feds or states - to do the Constitutionally-mandated DUTY of protecting the country from invasion.”
It is time to put an end to the charade of moderate Islam. There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists moderate, they are not.

The conclusion is clear: Obama, contrary to his oft-repeated promise to do everything, everything to prevent Iran going nuclear, is willing to let Tehran become the next nuclear power.
Was Iran was part of the Benghazi story?
