Obama genuflected to King Abdullah. His Asalaam Aleikum assured Muslims he was one of them. He promised Americans that Islam was a religion of peace.
Obama got conflicting advice about the Arab Spring. The CIA would have warned him Middle Eastern countries were highly volatile and all ruled by Dictators. Destabilizing governments and attempting regime change was dangerous. Carter’s overthrow of Iran’s Shah, our ally, was disastrous. Ayatollah Khomeini held Americans hostage for 444 days. Successor regimes had lasted 33 years, supporting terrorists, developing nuclear weapons and denying their people freedom.
Egypt was not part of the Islamic Caliphate. Dictator Mubarak was a secular ally. Christian Copts lived in peace. Egyptians respected Mubarak’s American-trained army. The only alternatives were Wahhabi/Salafist Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, lead by Morsi and/or the Egyptian Islamist Jihad, (“EIJ”) lead by Mohamed Zawahiri.
Libya’s Dictator Gaddafi was neutral. 20% of Al Qaeda’s terrorists are Libyan. Like Mubarak, Gaddafi had jailed hundreds of jihadi terrorists. In March 2011, even Rolling Stone warned that America shouldn’t interfere to protect Salafist groups like Ansar Al-Shari’ah.
Obama decided to overthrow Mubarak and Gaddafi, our allies; while doing nothing about Ahmadinejad and Assad, our enemies. He took advice from the Muslim Brotherhood and also from his State Department, which, while severely critical of Bush’s attempt at democracy in Iraq; felt that Obama’s attempts would succeed. Obama attended only 48% of the daily CIA briefings and disregarded Military advice on Iraq and Afghanistan anyway.
In Egypt, Obama helped the Muslim Brotherhood win the elections. They instantly jailed Americans. Obama paid a $5 million ransom and assured Morsi our $1.5 Billion aid would continue. Emboldened, Morsi neutered the Army and the Judiciary, persecuted opponents, released jailed terrorists, including EIJ’s Mohamed Zawahiri and Sheikh Adel Shehato, and established Shari’ah.
In Libya, Obama reassured Americans “there were no boots on the ground.” But he sent Chris Stevens to Benghazi to train and arm the “rebels” with the latest American weaponry. And spotters “on the ground” called in military strikes.
Next, Obama killed Osama and constantly spiked the football with references in speeches, at the DNC, a movie and even as a campaign slogan. In June, his Drone strike killed Al-Libi, a Libyan who was Ayman Zawahiri’s #2 in Al Qaeda.
The Results of Obama’s Decisions have been catastrophic:
Egypt has gone back to the 8th Century. The EIJ’s powerful Sheikh Adel Shehato threatened Coptic Christians with extermination if they failed to pay Jizya or the taxes “due” from Dhimmis or slaves. Mohamed Zawahiri offered America a truce. Peace with Al Qaeda in exchange for releasing all terrorists and agreeing not to interfere in “Muslim Lands,” obviously including Israel. In short, America can have peace if it abandons Israel.
Everyone now carries the 8th Century Islamic black flag under which Muslims conquered Christian countries and either killed Christians and Jews or made them Dhimmis. It depicts the first two Commandments of Muslims: The Shahada states, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet.” The sword symbolizes the second Commandment, which orders all Muslims to do Jihad against unbelievers and force them: accept Islam and recite the Shahada; or die.
When all those millions of Muslims are marching with that flag; or scrawling the Shahada on American Embassy walls; they are not expressing their “hurt feelings” like Hillary and other foolish Americans believe. They are issuing its threat: accept Islam and recite the Shahada; or die!
The events of 9/11 were clearly planned and coordinated by Islamists. Millions of Black Flags of Islamic Conquest were distributed around the world. On 9/10, Mohamed Zawahiri offered a truce to America. On 9/11, a 2-month-old video was translated into Arabic and re-released. For good measure, Israeli Jews and then Christian Copts were blamed for the video. Also on 9/11, Ayman Zawahiri called for revenge for the 3-month-old death of Al Libi.
Egypt’s Ambassador Anne Patterson had 4 day’s warning but didn’t realize it was 9/11, recognize the implications of those black flags or rescind her order denying Marines live ammunition. On 9/11, mobs scaled the walls, tore down and burned the American flag and replaced it with the Islamic Flag of Conquest; chanting “Obama, Obama, we’re all Osama now.”
Morsi did nothing to stop the mobs. Patterson immediately apologized to the mob: “We strongly condemn … individuals (who) hurt the religious feelings of Muslims…” The next day, Obama disavowed the apology, skipped the Daily Intelligence briefing and went off to a Vegas fundraiser.
Libya: The release of experienced fighters from Libyan jails and their obtaining control of over 500 bunkers containing American weapons has been calamitous. Libyan authorities confirm that Americans had 48-hours’ warnings of trouble, which explains why Ambassador Stevens rushed from Tripoli to Benghazi. But he took no Marines. Trained fighters tracked Stevens to Benghazi, overwhelmed the Libyan security, destroyed the Consulate and stole secret documents identifying Libyans who were cooperating with Americans.
The terrorists knew of the safe house and rained mortars down on it, despite Steven having helped them acquire power. A photo shows a clearly dead Ambassador Stevens hoisted over someone’s shoulder like he was a sack of potatoes… In response, Barack Hussein Obama asserted: “Libyans acted responsibly by carrying Steven’s body to the hospital.” Then, Obama flew off to more fundraisers in Colorado, Ohio, Florida and other battleground states.
We cannot afford to ignore the implications of these events. Wahhabi/Salafist Islamists now control both Egypt and Libya and are destabilizing all other Middle Eastern countries. They are not friends. They seek to conquer us. They planned the events of 9/11 to the last detail, translating an obscure video into Arabic to incite the mobs, handing out the flags and issuing a call for revenge.
The mobs and the suits are working together to force us into submission. The mobs riot, we apologize, and the suits warn us not to provoke them again and forgive us for having insulted them. Both groups, acting in concert, are waging Jihad against us.
