“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” —Mark Twain
The Islamist Cometh
Is it possible that Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamo-fascist, akin to a member of the Muslim Brotherhood? Let us pretend he is and see if it helps to explain his mystique.
During the 2008 primary season, Hamas was phone-banking for Obama. Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Upholding the Oath of Office would be distasteful to an actual Islamist president. Supporting the Constitution would mean going against the totalitarian, Islamo-fascist principles of the Koran. Muslim’s are, however, allowed to lie to non-Muslims—this is called taqiyya.
Obama is a profoundly anti-Constitution president, telling Americans he does not respect their views, as represented in Congress. “I have a pen, and I have a phone,” he says, threatening to make law by executive action. In the style of a totalitarian caliph, Obama rejects representative government, exhorting Americans to submit to his will. Islam means “submission.”
Harming the Military & Military Families
Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 soldiers. Obama denied it was Muslim terror, categorizing it as “workplace violence.” The re-designation deprived military families of the “terrorism benefits” they should have accrued. This demoralization has punished military families who have fought against Islamism for a decade.
Obama punishes Christians in the military for making religious remarks. Even a military chaplain did not escape censure for stating in a personal blog that “there are no atheists in foxholes.” Christians risk discharge, if fellow soldiers report religious statements on- or, in some cases, off-duty.
Muslims are more easily promoted in the armed forces. Submission to Obama, above the Constitution, is desired. Those who have no problem firing on their fellow, non-Islamist, Americans are put on the fast track.
The US military is forced to fast during Ramadan. Religious remarks that show Islamic preferences are not punished and sometimes are rewarded.
Obama’s Military Fecklessness
Obama is training 70,000 Taliban in American military methods, in Afghanistan. Obama released the five most dangerous Taliban from Gitmo in exchange for an away-without-leave, Islamist traitor. He helped only Muslims in this deal, and harmed America to boot.
Obama has fostered an environment in the Mid-East that has nurtured the birth of the Islamic State. Obama released their Caliph Ibrahim from US custody in Camp Bucca, Iraq, back in the spring of 2009, when he went by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Obama continues only to stalemate IS. He will not kill the cancer while it is still easily done. An Islamist president would not wish to harm or restrain IS more than politically necessary.
Obama has sent Secretary of State Chuck Hagel to Qatar with an $11 billion-dollar weapons deal. Qatar provides arms to Hamas.
Obama has held up arms shipments to Israel during their war with Hamas. He has made statements condemning Israel. He sympathizes with Hamas.
Betraying the Infidels
Obama is helping our enemy, Iran, to get nuclear weapons by way of a sham treaty. Iran, as an Islamist state, lies in its treaties. Obama has declared Iran off-limits to attack, during the protracted negotiations. An Islamist president would prefer to help an Islamist regime, rather than aid America—the Great Satan!
In a dangerous world of terror, Obama has canceled the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. He has also opened the US border to terrorists, who are streaming across it. An Islamist president would gladly jeopardize America.
Harms Against Israel
On April 2, 2012, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta leaked a report concerning Israel’s plan for a possible attack on Iran “in April, May, or June” of that year. This leak—a first in the history of US-Israel relations—removed any element of surprise Israel might have had, and effectively canceled any potential Israeli strike, while allowing Iran additional time to prepare by further developing its nuclear weapons program.
In June, 2010, Obama leaked information that Israel might use Saudi airspace to fly a more direct route to Iran. The Saudi-Israeli cooperation was revealed to the London Times, citing “US defense sources.” An Islamist president would revel in helping a potentially nuclear Islamist state in this way.
The US Defense Department, on June 4, 2013, leaked more than 1,000 pages of details of an Israeli system whose success rests on being totally invisible to enemy eyes. It was a great blow to the defense of Israel, because the Arrow 3 is designed to seek out and blow up Iranian Shihab 3 and other long-range missiles. An Islamist president would leak this information, without qualms.
Also, Foreign Policy Magazine has reported—citing an anonymous American source in the Defense Department—that Israel had arranged to use an air base in Azerbaijan as a way to launch an air strike against Iran. The Christian Science Monitor asked, “Did the U.S. just torpedo an Israeli deal for a base in Azerbaijan?” and began to wonder whether the U.S. was Israel’s “best friend” anymore—at least under this president.
Targeting Threats to Islam
Not only conservative and libertarian groups were targeted by the Obama IRS, Pro-Israel Jewish groups were also targeted. Obama has said he considers the greatest enemies of the US to be conservatives!
Ultra-liberals have not compared conservatives to terrorists, before Obama. Why would Obama say this? Constitutional conservatives believe in an ideal that is an anathema to Islamists— individual liberty, as enshrined in the Constitution! Pro-Israel Jews believe in the legitimacy of a safe haven for Jews—a Jewish state—something an Islamist president cannot countenance.
I have been predicting Obama’s actions for quite some time. Some marvel at my accuracy. My secret? Plain and simple: I imagine Obama to be an Islamist.
