And it only got worse. It was terrible. My heart is heavy for my country and the free world.
The media can spin their subjugation and adulation a million different ways, but America did not vote for a "Muslim presidency," which is what this is. Obama deceitfully hid his Muslim background and schooling and his agenda. Little did America know that Obama's objective would be a conversion of this nation to "the largest Muslim country in the world". From the moment he spoke as President, in the inaugural address, Islam was falsely given a preeminent place in the creation of America. In this speech, he quoted from the Koran three times. Why doesn't anybody comment on this? Why doesn't anyone ever comment on what he projected vs. what he is? Why won't all those talking heads state the obvious?
The Asia Times said Obama made a mistake by speaking in Cairo.
“Why should the president of the United States address the ‘Muslim
world?,” it asked. “What would happen if the leader of a big country
addressed the ‘Christian world’? Half the world would giggle and the
other half would sulk."
The Asia Times said Obama made a mistake by speaking in Cairo. “Why should the president of the United States address the ‘Muslim world?,” it asked. “What would happen if the leader of a big country addressed the ‘Christian world’? Half the world would giggle and the other half would sulk."
“To speak to the ‘Muslim world’ is to speak not to a fact, but rather to an aspiration," the paper stated, "and that is the aspiration that Islam shall be a global state religion as its founders intended. To address this aspiration is to breathe life into it. For an American president to validate such an aspiration is madness.”
He quoted extensively from the Koran.
In his typically anti-semitic fashion, Obama came down very hard on the Jews in his speech today to the Muslim world.(Full text of speech here)
MK Aryeh Eldad in Israel said, "Obama makes a shocking parallel between the destruction of European
Jewry and the suffering that the Arabs of Israel brought upon
themselves when they declared war on Israel."
“If Obama does not understand the difference between them, perhaps he will understand it better when he visits the concentration camp in the comings days. And if he doesn’t understand it even there, then Islam will once again teach it to him, just as it taught his predecessor on 9/11.”
The moral equivalence did not end there. Obama equated "the two peoples":
America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.
For decades, there has been a stalemate: two peoples with legitimate aspirations, each with a painful history that makes compromise elusive. It is easy to point fingers – for Palestinians to point to the displacement brought by Israel’s founding, and for Israelis to point to the constant hostility and attacks throughout its history from within its borders as well as beyond. But if we see this conflict only from one side or the other, then we will be blind to the truth: the only resolution is for the aspirations of both sides to be met through two states, where Israelis and Palestinians each live in peace and security.
There has not been a day, not one day, since the birth of modern Israel when she was not under attack by the Arabs. Not one. There are 25 Arab/Islamic countries, one tiny Jewish state. There is already a "two state solution" in place. Jordan is Palestine. Muslims in Gaza were given whole industries, factories (a way to make a living) and billions and billions in aid, to what end? Jewish genocide.
Israel must also live up to its obligations to ensure that Palestinians can live, and work, and develop their society.
Who is stopping them? They live to hate the Jews, and yet Obama insists the Jews be responsible for their executioners - this is rich.
I say, NO MORE LAND FOR ISLAM. NO MORE ISLAMIC COLONIALISM!
Obama's speech was a lesson in taqiya (lies to advance Islam). He called Islam a force of religious tolerance and racial equality ..... in the face of all the barbarism. He stated that “Muslims have enriched the U.S. and have won Nobel prizes.” They have, in fact, received less than a handful of the international Nobel prizes. It is an interesting point to make, considering the glaring omission of the Jews contribution to humanity. Here are the facts:
The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000, or 20% of the world population.
They received the following Nobel Prizes:
1988 - Najib Mahfooz.
1978 - Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat
1994 - Yaser Arafat
1999 - Ahmed Zewail
1960 - Peter Brian Medawar [UPDATE:Atheist/agnostic, not Muslim, and only half Arab]
1998 - Ferid Mourad
The Global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000, or about 0.002% of the world
They received the following Nobel Prizes:
He spoke of Cairo University being a source of Egypt’s advancement. Has he read the work of the leading scholars of Islam at Cairo University? No mention of the terrible hate taught at these universities. Dr. Bostom has written volumes on just this thing. Go here.
Obama spoke about the tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims - but who denies, oppresses and abuses the Muslims worse than the Muslims? Colonialism is the strawman used by haters of the West. Why doesn't Obama speak of Islamic supremacism and Islamic expansionism?
More dangerous nonsense: "the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam." Yes, the West is hostile to misogyny, honor killings, racism, Jew hatred .............ugh.
What revisionist nonsense. Do show us "how the arrival and steady spread of Islam, where it did spread, and was not opposed, made the world "a better place"?" More here. What advancements were made in Science, Medicine, Technology? These are Islamic lies: here's a starting point, and Fjordman has written a great deal about this very thing. This is a lie just as Palestine is an Islamic lie.
I think I should cite the Pope, when he quoted a Byzantine emperor who linked Islam to violence."Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."
America was not immune from Obama's flair for historical revisionism.
How amusing that Obama would bring up Tripoli, a war America had to fight against the Barbary Muslim pirates, and won. Another war against the historically aggressive and belligerent Islam. It seems disingenuous that Obama's pull quote from
Here is what
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
And Muslims have fought in our wars? Perhaps this is a recent development. The Muslims fought with Hitler - it's hard to know what Obama is talking about.
Obama said: "And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear." No, it is his responsibility to represent America, all Americans. I think Islam should fight "stereotypes" in thought and in deed.
"In Ankara, I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam." Obama has promised. But what if Islam is at war with us? What if Islam attacks America again? What then? Bin Laden reiterated, again today, "the long war against the infidels".
called for a long war against "infidels and their agents" and warned Muslims that alliances with Christians and Jews would turn them into apostates.
"We either live under the light of Islam or we die with dignity ... brace yourselves for a long war against the world's infidels and their agents," bin Laden said in the recording posted on an Islamist website on Thursday.
Bin Laden said Obama had planted "seeds of hatred" among Muslims. His deputy Ayman al-Zawahri called the U.S. president a criminal in another recording on Tuesday and warned Muslims against falling for his polished words.
"Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace"
Is such a big lie even possible after all we have been through as a nation?
Obama declared Iran's right to peaceful nuclear power. The mullahs must have been dancing naked in the forest. We, in America, are not allowed clean nuclear power (or drill our own oil); instead we must buy foreign oil and fund the jihad. But the Islamic jihadi regime of Iran can develop nuclear technology and energy. This was incredible.
Obama: In the middle of the Cold War, the United States played a role in the overthrow of a democratically-elected Iranian government.
Yes, Obama said that, and went on to say the most ridiculous statement uttered by a grown man:
I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons that others do not. No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons. That is why I strongly reaffirmed America’s commitment to seek a world in which no nations hold nuclear weapons. And any nation – including Iran – should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. That commitment is at the core of the Treaty, and it must be kept for all who fully abide by it. And I am hopeful that all countries in the region can share in this goal.
Such stupidity is breathtaking. At least I hope that he is stupid and not evil. Nuclear weapons in the hands of democratic, righteous nations have kept evil in check over the past 50 years. Does Hussein believe that evil will give up its weapons of mass destruction? They say he is not a stupid man. So what is he?
Children in Israel during bomb drill
On democracy, Obama said:
So let me be clear: no system of government can or should be imposed upon one nation by any other.
Really, that's news to Japan and Germany post WW2. And that's news to all of the previously Christian nations that were barbarically destroyed and taken over by Islam ..... and there are all those cute little Soviet Republics.
And then, this chestnut:
This last point is important because there are some who advocate for democracy only when they are out of power; once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others.
It sounds autobiographical ................
Obama preached about religious freedom -- speaking in a country where there is none. And that goes also for Obama's visit yesterday to Saudi Arabia.
Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today.
Here are Christians worshiping freely in Indonesia (****WARNING: LINK IS VERY GRAPHIC***). Or see these sweet young Christian girls beheaded on their way home from school.
Obama was ugly and stern with the Jews in his speech - NO MORE SETTLEMENTS! (And stood there waiting for applause for his Jewish ethnic cleansing). As if Jews wanting to live in peace and security was a war against humanity. In the same breath, Obama SPOKE OF CHRISTIANS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES AS "Christians [who] worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country".
More free Christians In Indonesia:
100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood
shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head." .
Beheaded girls were Ramadan 'trophies'
And Obama's service to Islam did not stop there. His next jawdropper:
OBAMA: For instance, in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.
More money for jihad. Think Holy Land foundation. Islamic charities fund jihad.
OBAMA: Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit – for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.
One assault on free men (and women) after another:
The sixth issue that I want to address is women’s rights.
I know there is debate about this issue. I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal, but I do believe that a woman who is denied an education is denied equality. And it is no coincidence that countries where women are well-educated are far more likely to be prosperous.
Now let me be clear: issues of women’s equality are by no means simply an issue for Islam. In Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia, we have seen Muslim-majority countries elect a woman to lead. Meanwhile, the struggle for women’s equality continues in many aspects of American life, and in countries around the world.
THE STRUGGLE FOR WOMEN'S EQUALITY CONTINUES IN MANY ASPECTS OF AMERICAN LIFE.
Rape victim lashed
FGM - clitorectomy
Amina and Sarah said, Honor Killing victims in Texas
I do not believe that women must make the same choices as men in order to
be equal, and I respect those women who choose to live their lives in traditional roles. But it should be their choice.
Traditional roles for women in Islam. Oh, the humanity.
Making the world safe for Islamic male oppression, subjugation and ownership.
"That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it."
He goes on to say he will increase Muslim students coming into this country.
On education, we will expand exchange programs, and increase scholarships, like the one that brought my father to America, while encouraging more Americans to study in Muslim communities. And we will match promising Muslim students with internships in America
And as our country goes bankrupt:
We will open centers of scientific excellence in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and appoint new Science Envoys to collaborate on programs that develop new sources of energy, create green jobs, digitize records, clean water, and grow new crops. And today I am announcing a new global effort with the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Obama never once mentioned terror or terrorism. Not once. He never mentioned democracy in Iraq, Afghanistan or the lack of it in Saudi Arabia, Egypt ....... He actually spoke of the savages, Hamas, with .... respect.
If there is one thing that is perfectly clear, it's that Obama cannot distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong, and this puts us all in grave danger.
OBAMA: The Holy Koran tells us, “O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.”
And may God’s peace be upon you.
Israel MK Zevulun Orlev said upon hearing Obama's speech: "The speech arouses fears and concerns regarding the future of American relations towards Israel. I fear an erosion of the traditional American commitment to Israel’s security needs and its very existence and independence. Our response must not be to cave in, but rather to have dialogue with, and persuade the Administration, while waging an emergency call-up of all the resources of Israel and the Jewish nation. ”
I fear for my nation too, Mr. Orlev.
UPDATE: Read Spencer's brilliant take on this: Platitudes and naivete: Obama's Cairo speech
I am honored to be in the timeless city of Cairo, and to be hosted by two remarkable institutions. For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning,
...whose Grand Sheikh, Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, has given his approval — on Islamic grounds — to suicide bombing.
and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt's advancement. Together, you represent the harmony between tradition and progress. I am grateful for your hospitality, and the hospitality of the people of Egypt. I am also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: assalaamu alaykum.
And KGS over at Tundra Tabloids has an excellent take here: Obama's DOHA Inspired Speech in Cairo Full of Historical Errors and Apologetics.......
Enough with the rest of Obama's speech, it's just more of what I've heard already, when I sat in on a seminar to hear the OIC's Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu give a talk about "Islam in Europe". I'm sure that the OIC 's Secretary General is now grinning from ear to ear after hearing Obama promote everyone of his talking points, and with the backing of the United States of America...
UPDATE: Excellent comment: BINGO
UPDATE: Dan Friedman:
It's Thursday, it must be Cairo. Here's Obama's wrap up today. Something for everyone.:
The Holy Koran tells us, "O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another."
The Talmud tells us: "The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace."
The Holy Bible tells us, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God."
UPDATE: Check out Yid with lid's take here.
The mention of terror group Hamas as a leader of Palestinians has some wondering just how far President Obama is going to change U.S. policy toward the Mideast. FOX News
UPDATE: BTW, Mubarak was not there. The Muslim Brotherhood was, but not the President of the country.
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will not be among 3,000 people to attend U.S. President Barack Obama’s historic speech shortly after noon Thursday, a possible bad omen for the American leader trying to win respect in the Muslim world.
The official reason for his absence is the death of his 12-year-old grandson, but the child died in mid-May after health complications. Mubarak’s eldest son Jamal will stand in for his father, according to the independent Egyptian daily al-Masry al-Youm. Jamal is viewed as the future heir to take over as president of Egypt.
Got a minute, watch Obama -- Warning: Hurl alert. Best not to to view on a full stomach.
