Here is video of GOP Rep. Allen West talking about the unwillingness on the part of many in our Government to face-up to the threat posed by Radical Islam today. West even points out that we have totally misunderstood the “Arab Spring,” which is actually a takeover of Egypt and other nations by the radical Islamists, like Mohamed Morsi, who frequently reminds critics about his Election victory – “Elections have consequences.” West further pointed out that is the same rhetoric we hear frequently from Barack Obama to justify his policies.
Remember this? I can’t resist posting it again. It is video of Niall Ferguson just destroying Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy, particularly related to his decision to throw Egyptian President Hosni Mubarack under the bus in support of the “Arab Spring.” This is Ferguson on February 14, 2011 on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he totally burst the bubble of the crew who were still basking in the glow of what they believed was the second American Revolution. Ferguson was eerily prophetic, pointing out that Obama had essentially opened the door for the radical Islamic “Muslim Brotherhood” to take power in Egypt, and said if that happens, you will be looking at something akin to what happened in “1979″ when Iran fell to the radical Islamists when Jimmy Carter was President.
In early 2011, the media was hailing Obama for the “success” of the Arab Spring, and claimed there was no chance the “Muslim Brotherhood” would take power, because they said they were not a political party and would not have a Presidential Candidate. And if they did, there was nothing to fear because they are secular.
But now the Muslim Brotherhood just won the Egyptian Election and they are clearly an Islamist Party. Today, as well as in early 2011, Rush Limbaugh – like Ferguson – was warning we were looking at Barack Obama being another Jimmy Carter and Egypt falling under radical Islamist control as Iran did. Be sure and watch this video. It’s a classic as Ferguson just destroys the Left and Obama’s Foreign Policy even as they desperately tried to claim the “Arab Spring” was a great victory.
Iranian Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who has been imprisoned in Iran for his faith for over 900 days, and sentenced to death, may now be about to lose his attorney. Reports indicate that the Iranian attorney who has been representing Nadarkhani is being sentenced to 9 years in prison for “propaganda against the regime.” The move is raising concerns the Iranian Government may be close to acting on the death sentence against Nadarkhani. They can do so at any moment, without any warning and without setting any kind of execution date. Nadarkhani has refused a number of times to recant his faith in Jesus Christ in order to have the death sentence overturned. His case reveals the vile grip radical Islam has on Iran and other parts of the Muslim world. Freedoms of speech, religion, and assembly are not respected, and basic Human Rights are routinely violated. Nadarkhani’s case is garnering world-wide attention.
Remember that glorious “Arab Spring” that the Obama Administration and a fawning media promoted last year? Well, here is coming to pass what many said would happen all along when Obama threw longtime U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak under the bus in Egypt: The Muslim Brotherhood is going to run a candidate for President there. They describe themselves as “Islamists,” and now many in Egypt fear they are determined to officially seize power there. So, the Arab Spring is likely to produce an even more repressive regime in Egypt, and one that is an enemy of the United States.
More of Barack Obama’s “Change you can believe in.”
Here is video of Rick Santorum on the campaign trail in Lenexa, Kansas, where he hammered Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy, particularly his handling of Iran.
“An honest President would tell you that we are at war with radical Islamists. But this President won’t even utter the term.”
Santorum also hammered Obama for his ObamaCare monstrosity.
Here is video of Newt Gingrich yesterday slamming President Barack Obama for apologizing to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the inadvertent burning of Islamic materials there. Gingrich said that while Obama was quick to apologize, “I haven’t seen the President demand that the Government of Afghanistan apologize for the killing of two young Americans.”
Gingrich further said that if Afghan President Karzai “doesn’t feel like apologizing, then I think we should say, ‘Goodbye and good luck. We don’t need to be here risking our lives and wasting our money on somebody who doesn’t care.’ The time has come to tell the truth about the threat of radical Islamism, and to tell the truth about the degree to which the Obama Administration routinely and consistently lies to the American people about what’s going on.”
Tonight, Sean Hannity interviewed Minnesota Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison – an outspoken Muslim member of Congress.
Hannity asked him about some of his statements criticizing those who opposed the Ground Zero Mosque, where he accused them of being “bigots.” Ellison said he believes some opponents were bigots against Islam – but not all of them.
Ellison took exception to the use of “Islam” or “Islamic” in relation to the terrorists at war against the United States. Ellison said some of them may be Muslim, or they may be White Supremacists, or Christians.
Good grief. How many Christians have flown planes into buildings or blown themselves up to kill innocent people in acts of Jihad? Radical Islam is at war with us – and we’d better recognize that reality.
Greta Van Susteren has posted on her GretaWire the following headline:
She is referring to a New York Times article that indicates what many feared all along would happen in Egypt with the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak, is indeed happening: The Muslim Brotherhood is rising to power. Making matters much worse, it appears they have forged an alliance with the Egyptian Military:
NEW YORK TIMES: In post-revolutionary Egypt, where hope and confusion collide in the daily struggle to build a new nation, religion has emerged as a powerful political force, following an uprising that was based on secular ideals. The Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group once banned by the state, is at the forefront, transformed into a tacit partner with the military government that many fear will thwart fundamental changes.
It is also clear that the young, educated secular activists who initially propelled the nonideological revolution are no longer the driving political force — at least not at the moment.
As the best organized and most extensive opposition movement in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was expected to have an edge in the contest for influence. But what surprises many is its link to a military that vilified it.
“There is evidence the Brotherhood struck some kind of a deal with the military early on,” said Elijah Zarwan, a senior analyst with the International Crisis Group. “It makes sense if you are the military — you want stability and people off the street. The Brotherhood is one address where you can go to get 100,000 people off the street.” . . . Read More
Here is video of Charles Krauthammer on with Bill O’Reilly where he said “the flag of Islam will not fly over the White House.” Krauthammer was responding to a declaration on “This Week” by Islamic leader Anjem Choudary that “the flag of Islam would fly over the White House.”
O’Reilly said he would have laughed at Choudary if he had been doing the interview. But Krauthammer said Europe is in danger of Islamic domination in the future, because “large radicalized Muslim communities” with leaders like Choudary have formed and have gained influence.
Krauthammer cited Bernard Lewis as predicting that “Europe will be Muslim” by the end of this century. Krauthammer does not believe that can happen here in the United States because of our history of separating church and state. We also have a tradition of assimilation, while Europe does not.
