The Obama Administration’s Love Affair With Islam

The words “Muslim” and Islamist” hae long been purged from any and all government anti-terrorist training manuals.

Nidal Malik Hasan, a 39-year-old U.S. Army major murdered 13 soldiers at Fort Hood while yelling  “Allah Akbar” and his act was declared a “work place incident”.

Suleiman Abu Ghaith, the son-in-law of Osama bin Laden was located the other day in Jordan. He was not introduced to a drone missile, he was not captured and taken to Guantanamo for interrogation; but, he was captured and taken to New York to stand trial in civilian court where he will be on stage and in the spotlight for the next ten years or so.

US Secretary of State, John Kerry, came up with a plan for the State Department give out awards for “Women of Courage” and First Lady, Michelle Obama, decided to join in the act. One who was to receive the award was, Samira Ibrahim. Ms. Samira, an Egyptian woman, was selected because she objected to the Egyptian Army’s “virginity tests”. But, someone exposed some of her tweeting history. Mark Steyn shares them with us:

On the Bulgarian bus driver and Israeli tourists murdered by a suicide bomber last summer:

An explosion on a bus carrying Israelis in Burgas airport in Bulgaria on the Black Sea. Today is a very sweet day with a lot of very sweet news.

Her favorite Hitler quote:

I have discovered with the passage of days, that no act contrary to morality, no crime against society, takes place, except with the Jews having a hand in it. Hitler.

And her reaction to the Cairo mob raising the al-Qaeda flag over the U.S. embassy:

Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning.


And, as of yesterday, a convert to Islam, John Brennan, was confirmed to lead America’s Central Intelligence Agency. In May of 2010, Fox News had this to say about Obama’s then Counter Terrorism Advisor:

The president’s top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” arguing that the term “jihadists” should not be used to describe America’s enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”

He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not “terrorism,” because terrorism is a “tactic,” and not terror, because terror is a “state of mind” — though Brennan’s title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word “terrorism” in it. But then Brennan said that the word “jihad” should not be applied either.

“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children,” Brennan said.

What could possibly go wrong? And, some people ask me why I call this blog Asylum Watch.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. Ms. Samira Ibrahim once again teaches a lesson most folks should listen to, but probably will not…
    Tweeting on twitter is just plain… welll… dumb!

    Drone numbers:
    There have been 364 drone strikes directed at killing Islamists…
    Bush: 52
    Obama: 312
    Obama killed Osama and most of the top Al Qaida leadership

    Where is the love?

  2. Off subject, Prof. Look at the news about Venezuela in my blog. I wonder if you know it already.

  3. The torturing of language is very Clintonesque. Shouldn’t the question be, What do the perpetrators say about it themselves? Don’t they call it jihad when they kill innocents? Isn’t their point to fight in an asymmetrical fashion that utilizes terrorist tactics, specifically to… um… terrorize people until they submit? I know that what Brennan is saying is true for non-terrorist, believing Muslims. Jihad is a matter of introspection for those people. But those people aren’t who we are fighting, and the ones we are fighting make no bones about claiming what they are doing is jihad and that it is holy. It should not be up to US to defend their religion. I’d love to see moderate Muslims defending it against the people who really defame it, the Islamofascists.

  4. I just heard about Kerry’s nomination of Samira Ibrahim as a woman of courage and it does make you wonder where Obama’s priorities lie, there is no doubt in my mind that Obama gave Kerry this woman’s name.

  5. I just wish they would have gone ahead and given out the award. Indicates what we have running around in our midst.

  6. Obama’s love affair with Islam is part of his version of the new world order.

    It matters not if Obama himself is a Muslim. At the least, he is an Islamophile.

    He’s behaving and promoting policies as if he’s a Muslim — a Muslim moving cautiously so as to further the further ascendancy of Islam. Remember his 2009 Cairo speech? For starters, go back to that statement, and read between the lines (critical reading).

    Now, as to national security….Bringing OBL’s son to NYC for a criminal trial — with no less than three free lawyers to represent the man — is “just asking for it.” “It” means, of course, another jihadist strike against NYC.
