President Obama’s recent remarks praising Muslims’ “contribution” to this country is enough to make your skin crawl. The remarks were released last Sunday to mark the Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim celebration which marks the end of Ramadan. Obama went on to say that the event “celebrated common values that unite us in our humanity” and he “welcomed their commitment to giving back in their communities.” How the President can utter those words with a straight face is beyond comprehension.
This administration’s Muslim preference doesn’t end there. The U.S. military is also honoring Muslims during this “holy” time. Active duty personnel at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD, were addressed by a brigade commander recently with a few pre-Ramadan wishes. First, please refrain from eating and drinking in front of Muslims as they are not allowed to eat or drink during daylight hours. Second, please use the greeting “Ramadan-Kareem” when encountering a Muslim.
The brigade commander instructed personnel, “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship. I’d like to encourage you to learn just a little more about this religion, but more importantly, I’m asking you to be considerate and do not consume food or drink in front of our Muslim colleagues; it is a simple, yet respectful action.”
Respect is not flying a plane into buildings and killing 3,000 people. Considerate is not systematically trying to kill off the Jewish population. Personal restraint doesn’t include beheading, torturing, and murdering Christians and other “infidels” in the name of Allah. This ridiculous “request” comes after Christianity has been all but banned in the Armed Forces. Coincidence? I think not.
If Muslims have in fact contributed so much to this nation’s “fabric” I would invite Mr. Obama to educate us on some of these contributions and not make vague references like “common values that unite us” which means nothing, really. I don’t remember Muslims sacrificing their freedom and well-being so we can live in the greatest country in the world; but I do remember a group of persecuted English Christians doing so. While Muslims are tip-toed around and catered to in this country, Christians and Jews across the world are frequently tortured and murdered by Muslims.
The early settlers of America came here to escape the very injustices and persecution that Muslims like Barack Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama deem acceptable today. A photograph of Malik wearing a Hamas scarf, or keffiyah, was recently released and it is chilling. The scarf displays the saying, “We are coming” and “From river to the sea.” The second phrase refers to the Palestinian belief that the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea (which is Israel) belongs to them. Essentially, Israel should not exist. While it’s no secret that Malik Obama is a Muslim (as is most of Barack Obama’s family members), his alliance with Hamas should be extremely concerning to Christians, Jews, and Americans.
Despite a long string of instances where our President has defended Islam and denounced Christianity, Barack Obama’s family ties to Hamas are downright frightening. He has attempted to eliminate God and any Judeo Christian element in American society and has placed Islam on a political and religious pedestal. He has shown more reverence to Allah than he has to Jesus Christ, whom he halfheartedly claims to worship.
In spite of Obama’s attempts at distancing himself from his radical half-brother, Malik claims that the two men are close, telling GQ magazine last year, “Of course we’re close! I’m the one who brought him here to Kogelo in 1988! I thought it was important for him to come home and see from whence his family came—you know, his roots.” His roots? As in, terrorist roots? Brothers got each others’ backs though.
Malik as you may know heads a “foundation” which received exempt status from the IRS while Tea Party members were discriminated against. That’s right, the IRS gave preferential treatment to a Hamas supporter and tracked Tea Partiers like some sort of witch hunt. To Obama and the Left, we right wingers are worse than actual terrorists!
What kind of message does this sent to the world? It is a message to the Muslim world that our President, Barrack Hussein Obama, not only stands with them, but is one of them.
Let’s take a quick gander at the “contributions” Muslims have made to this country that our dear and fearless Leader forgot to mention. Since 1972, 3,102 Americans have been killed on American soil by Muslims and Americans aren’t the only infidels targeted by the Muslim world. In May, 30 Christians were shot dead inside a church in Central African Republic by Muslim “rebels”. In March, 100+ Christians were killed in Nigeria by Muslim herders, who also burned hundreds of huts. Here’s a (not so) fun fact I’d love liberals to try and explain: 100-200 million Christians are persecuted annually and 85% of it takes place in Muslim nations. All across the Middle East this is happening. They are vicious savages, they are a religion of death and destruction. Similar values to America? I think not.
We are seeing increased coverage of the violence between Israel and Hamas and the lack of support this administration for Israel is unnerving. I believe we are seeing this President’s alliance come full circle. His policies, statements, and family ties have left us with a clear picture of who this man is and what he believes. The half-brother wearing terrorist garb was best man at Obama’s wedding. Despite Barack Obama’s initial attempts at distancing himself from his half-brother, terrorist Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, and appointing alleged members of the Muslim Brotherhood to the Department of Homeland Security, Obama realizes now no matter what he does, he is untouchable. He doesn’t have to pretend anymore. He can offer the White House to Islam as he did when Bowe Berghdal’s father held a press conference.
Not only is Obama nonchalant about it, Malik is as well in his matter of fact statements of his closeness to the President. Malik supports Hamas, Barack is supplying the paychecks, and Christians and Jews, and others as well, are dying by the thousands.
