There are about 1.5 BILLION Moslems worldwide. And there’s less than 14 MILLION Jews worldwide with fewer than half of them living in Israel.
Yet, to hear it from the Moslems, the Arabs AND Barack Obama, the problems with Islam is Israel. It seems to be if Israel ceased to exist so would all of the problems plaguing the Moslem world.
I woke up at 5:00 o’clock in the morning (June 4, 2009) to hear the media pre-spin of Obama’s speech to Islam from Cairo. As scheduled, the speech commenced just after 6 AM with an opening statement to set the tone with Barack Obama saying Salem Alechem.
From there it was all platitudes, revisionism, exaggerations, distortions and a not so covert warning to Israel.
I best liked his line that extolled America’s undying loyalty to Israel, like the girlfriend who tells her boyfriend just how much she loves him before he gets the old heave-ho.
Remember the other people Barack Obama numbered as his closest friends? The racist America/Jew-hating Reverend Wright. Tony Rezko the indicted Egyptian born slumlord. And bill Ayers, America’s homegrown 60’s TERRORIST.
Where are they now that Obama no longer has any need for them? And we can’t forget the “Typical” White Grandmother who raised him. He didn’t even have time to go to her funeral after he was elected President.
I learned form Barack Obama’s speech that Islam played a fundamental role in the development of the USA – WHAT?
I learned that Islam has given magnificent gifts to the world including Nobel Laureates – WHAT?
I learned that Islam is a welcoming religion of peace, not to be confused with the TINY MINORITY of Moslems who have declared Holy War on the West – WHAT?
Strange hearing that just a few days after the wanton murder of a US soldier on US soil at an army recruiting office, which also included the wounding of another US soldier in the same attack by a Black American convert to Islam.
I learned that Jerusalem is an International City, even though it was King Solomon’s capitol 3,000 years ago, never claimed as any other nation’s capitol until the rebirth of Israel in 1948.
I learned that Israel must be responsible for the growth and well being of the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. Why not hold Israel responsible for the well being and growth of all failed Moslem and Arab States?
I heard about the horrible conditions the Palestinians have been forced to live in. So I wondered, what happened to the BILLIONS of dollars the Palestinians have received in foreign aid? And why is their lifestyle Israel’s problem, much less Israel’s fault?
It can’t have all been given to Arafat’s widow.
I learned that Israel must STOP occupying Palestinian land and STOP building Settlements. We saw how well that worked for Israel when they left all of Gaza and the Lebanese security zone.
I learned that every nation, INCLUDING Iran has the RIGHT to pursue nuclear energy independence. And EVERY country must reject all nuclear weapons. But not even a hint of a mention about Iran not being permitted to build nuclear weapons.
I’m sure bad-actors like the North Koreans and Pakistanis will be eager to surrender their weapons of mass destruction because Obama said so.
Obama admitted that even amongst Moslems, there is interfaith strife and violence. How’s that for an UNDER-STATEMENT?
I just learned that Obama has recognized Hamas. Did anyone receive the memo that announced Hamas’ removal from the international TERRORIST list?
During the Presidential election, anyone who mentioned Obama’s middle name (HUSSEIN) was vilified as a racist. Anyone who hinted that he has Moslem blood and a Moslem background was all but tarred and feathered by the compliant LEFTIST media.
But now – Now that he’s President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama can’t stop talking about his Moslem connections.
His first international speech after being elected President was on Moslem Arabic Al-Arabiya – WHY?
Why is he reaching out to the Moslem world as if it’s America’s fault that the Moslems don’t like the USA? Even in this speech, long after Bush has been gone from office and he’s been the President, he’s still blaming George W Bush for making the Arab/Moslem world antagonistic to the USA.
Here’s a newsflash for B Hussein Obama:
The Moslems first bombed the World Trade Center (1993) long before Bush, just as they bombed Khobar Towers, the two East African US Embassies, Black Hawk Down and the USS Cole.
And the planning for 9/11 was in the works long before George W Bush was elected President of the USA in the year 2000.
Unless B Hussein Obama missed it, it was a namby-pamby Democrat (Bill Clinton) who was in office from 1992 to 2000 when Islam decided to beat-up on the USA.
What bothered me most about Obama’s speech was his description of 9/11 as a TRAUMA.
Calling 9/11 a trauma, is akin to calling Hurricane Katrina a windstorm, and an insult to the 3000 people or so who lost their lives, the thousands who were injured, and the HUNDREDS of MILLIONS who suffered a psychological scar that might never go away.
On the anniversary of 9/11, Anne and I stand facing our two flagpoles where we fly the Canadian and American flags respectively. At the precise moment when the first plane hit the first Tower, we lower our flags to half-mast, and we stand for a few minutes in silence with teary eyes.
Then we go into the house and light a 24-hour candle in memory of the lights that were snuffed out on that horrible day.
Anne and I wouldn’t do this for something as simple as a trauma.
NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS:
In response to B Hussein Obama’s mention of Moslem Nobel Laureates:
Islam represents more than 20% of the world’s population, yet, their GRAND TOTAL of Nobel Prizes including a PEACE PRIZE to the Father of Modern-day TERRORISM Yasser Arafat is JUST 6.
The global Jewish community represents 0.02% of the world population. That’s just 2 people out of every THOUSAND people on the planet. Yet, Jews have won Nobel Prizes 165 times.
Imagine how many times Jews could have won it if 6 MILLION weren’t murdered in the Holocaust? Or how many more great medical, scientific and social discoveries could have been made had it not been for the Holocaust?
I do not believe in a God. But if I did, I would be praying to Him or Her that we will survive 4 years of America’s first Moslem President, Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama is an embarrassment and an insult to the men and women who sacrificed so much over the past couple of hundred years, who together have created the greatest nation on earth.
If I believed in God, I would say – GOD BLESS AMERICA, and keep her safe from Barack Obama.
