This is just beyond ridiculous. In his public statements, Muslim-born and -bred Barack Hussein Obama uses the Muslim terrorists’ own chosen name for themselves, “The Islamic State (in Wherever)” when talking about them–yet in his typical Orwellian, bald-faced Islamic taqiyya, he belligerently insists that they aren’t Islamic:
“No religion condones the killing of innocents,” Obama lied, pretending that The Koran’s numerous commands and exhortations for worshippers of Allah to terrorize, slaughter, and behead “infidels,” as the way to advance the Muslim ideology and earn one’s way into paradise, did not exist.
He doesn’t want you to look under the hood.
Obama and his fellow travellers would prefer that you only know about maybe a single, isolated passage in The Koran (which, taken alone, might make Islam seem peaceful) rather than have you actually become familiar with the vast body of Islamic scriptural underpinnings which drive the worldwide terrorism and totalitarian oppression wrought by such a barbaric and backward ideology for so many hundreds of years.
It was bad enough that immediately after the 9/11 attacks, president George W. Bush and other Western Leaders engaged in the most nauseating, cowardly kind of political correctness by emphatically proclaiming “Islam is a religion of peace” as they all rushed off to the nearest mosques to pray with Muslims, grovelling in abject submission to the violent, totalitarian ideology of our attackers.
Now we have the current president of the United States taking an even more absurd position (given present circumstances, the disastrous results of half-measures against Islamic aggression all these years later) saying in front of the TV cameras that the ultimate expression of Islam, the very manifestation of its founder Mohammed’s own psychotic, murderous character and methods, is “not Islamic” at all.
Of course, by “the ultimate expression of Islam,” I’m referring to the burgeoning caliphate being ushered into existence by the marauding warlords and minions who carry the banner of Muslim conquest, the massive movement known as ISIS (The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria).
For some reason, Hussein Obama insists on calling them ISIL (The Islamic State in The Levant) instead, probably because he wants to grant them recognition of their eventual conquest of the Holy Land, in advance of their full accomplishment of it; The Levant is a rather sophisticated, cosmopolitan phrase depicting the general region of Asia Minor which encompasses the vast land-bridge connecting the entire area along/East of the Mediterranean Sea, including Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Israel, parts of Turkey and Egypt, and so forth.
The word “caliphate” means an outright, theocratic Islamic empire, with a successor to Mohammed at its head, and the bloodthirsty savages who are murdering their way across entire countries have not only essentially achieved their initial, basic aim, there’s no real sign that anyone is going to stop them.
Obama’s dishonest rhetoric about the entire problem is the first clue that his words really have no meaning, or, have a meaning exactly opposite their face value.
Not only are Americans too dumbed-down, diverse, and demoralized, after well over a decade of the pure folly of trying to “nation-build,” to turn entire populations of atavistic Islamic zombies into freedom-loving, modern human beings, to rally for more war; we also do not have anything resembling the leadership for success in such a struggle.
Let’s talk turkey, for once–and I don’t just mean metaphorically. I’m intimately familiar with this subject matter.
In 1981-82, was just turning 18 years old when I received my first assignment on active duty in the U.S. Air Force, a one year remote tour in Southeastern Turkey near the borders with Iraq, Iran, and Syria. There, I was a member of a counter-terrorism force of USAF security police protecting strategic American military assets in support of NATO alliances. Later, I spent the consecutive summers of 1985 and 1986 helping to lead another unit of security specialists based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia–I was named our project’s NCOIC (non-commissioned officer in charge) of the anti-terrorism program. I personally know what it’s like to feel the shock waves of a terrorist bomb going off not far from where I was posted one evening, in the heart of the most Muslim of countries, where beheadings, amputations, and religious totalitarianism are routine.
We are not going to beat Islamic aggression with money or rhetoric or politeness. We are only going to beat them with utter ruthlessness and hateful destruction, of an even more unflinching resoluteness than they dare muster against us. Like it or not, that’s reality. If we honestly have anything resembling true Christian love of the good, for our children and fellow human beings around the world, we will not shirk from doing what is necessary to slaughter the mass numbers of Mohammed’s followers required to make conditions safe for people to live free from Islamic savagery. Yes, only overwhelming brute savagery can defeat savagery, even though our remedy does not advance savagery as its end goal–theirs does. Those who understand the dynamics of World War II, and how we won it and achieved lasting peace with our adversaries, know this.
We’d better start electing leaders who understand and acknowledge this reality.
More boots on the ground? For God’s sake, why, if we don’t really have to? We have modern weapons for a reason, up to and including nukes. Not one more American life nor limb should be sacrificed, if it really doesn’t have to.
