Obama Muslims in America are a persecuted minority; Muslim terrorists are just bad people, or chickens
Our president, Barach Hussein Obama, continues to defend the religious faith that has contributed to more bloodshed in the world and the U.S. than any other people of faith. Others may tell the truth about Muslim extremists; our president is more than willing to stand side by side with his Muslim brothers at mosques where radical Islamic clerics and other activists have been able to plot attacks against Americans.
Is this the God damn America that the Obama’s wedding officiator, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright spoke so forcefully about, that Barach and Michelle forced themselves to “suffer” through, as true patriots, people who thought of America first?
The problem is that Pres. Obama lied about his true intensions, his true feelings, both about America and Muslims. He has so since he took office, or before, when he began campaigning for the presidency.
Many did not care about his background, in a rush to satisfy the liberal agenda of needing to elect a black president, no matter his background or pastor. Let’s be clear: Pres. Obama has been a disaster in determining policy in regard to Muslims across the world, whether they are considered peaceful or hostile suicide bombers, wrecking havoc on Israel.
His actions related to the Arab Spring did nothing but cause additional bloodshed across the Middle Eeast, in a list of nations with a majority of Muslims, including Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, and mostly, Syria.
In this regard, Obama is the real JV team, except that he is, bizarrely (or accurately) an excellent apologist for extremist Muslims, or the Muslim faith in general.
We have evidence of this with his speech at a mosque in Baltimore that is known as having links to terrorism. The Islamic Society of Baltimore’s former iman had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and a Northern Virginia mosque where the radical Anwar-al-Awlaki preached.
Mohamad Adam El-Sheikh is the man who who served at the Baltimore mosque from 1983-1989 and 1994-2003. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan, he had moved to the U.S. in 1978 and went on to receive several advanced law degrees as he became involved in the religious community.
During his time in Baltimore, El-Sheikh was a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency, the international parent organization of which has been cited by the U.S. Treasury Department for connections to Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
After 2003, he was the imam for the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., near Washington. It was there that Awlaki, just months earlier, gave his fiery sermons, before going on to be a top Al Qaeda affiliate operative in Yemen. Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
None of this phases our president: “Too often, people conflating the horrific acts of terrorism with an entire faith,” he said at the mosque.
Too often, people don't admit that the majority of terrorist acts in the world are committed by Muslims. Many Muslims, thousands in fact, believe that it is God’s (or Allah’s) will that Americans should die.
It’s as though by visiting this mosque, he is attempting to put out the smoldering embers of terrorism, fears of Muslims in America, by declaration. At least then they could have been on their guard against this terrorist couple that was allowed into the country by the Obama administration.
Obama talks about Muslim mothers, children who are scared. But Americans are the ones who should be scared of Muslims who have massacred and targeted non-Muslims.
“We are one American family. And when part of our family starts to feel second or second class or targeted, it tears at the fabric of our nation,” he said at the mosque.
But we are not one family when Muslim extremists attack Americans, if they are true to their faith, if they want to kill the infidel.
The problem is that Obama disproportionately reflects and supports the Muslim community, when he should reflect and support Americans who have been senselessly massacred by Muslims.
Nor is there a rational balance from the president in speaking about how Islam affects Americans:
“Today, there are voices in our world, particularly over the Internet that claim that you have to choose your identities,” he said. “As a Muslim or as an American. Do not believe them.”
Obama seems to be more concerned or “heartbroken” about the worries and anxieties about young Muslim community leaders than he is about the families who have lost loved ones because of the senseless violence by Muslim terrorists in the U.S.
To his credit, Obama is acknowledging the problem with extremists Muslim voices, and their propensity to silence, by any means, reasonable people who want democracy and freedom.
"And around the globe, Muslims who've dared to speak out have often been targeted and even killed So those voices are there; we just have to amplify them more."
The problem is that they are being killed by Muslims, not those of other religions. Muslims are killing Christians and Jews, and Muslims. It's important that a leader such as Obama focus on that fact. He doesn't and never has.
Presidential Candidate Marco Rubio and senator from Florida has been the most vocal in criticizing the tone of Obama’s comments, to his credit:
“I’m tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like this president’s done,” Rubio said at a town hall in New Hampshire. “Always pitting people against each other. Always.”
“Look at today: he gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims. Of course there’s discrimination in America, of every kind. But the bigger issue is radical Islam. And by the way, radical Islam poses a threat to Muslims themselves,” Rubio said.
We don’t really have to worry about Muslims being discriminated against. We have to worry about Muslims killing Americans indiscriminately. We have to worry about Muslims killing any Americans they can figure out how to kill effectively, easily, without being stopped by this president.
Perhaps this president will be more discriminating in his comments about radical Muslims terrorists in America in the future. Or perhaps he is just standing up for the people who he thinks really need to be supported: Muslim terrorists. The Muslim chickens have come home to roost.
