Obama’s Speech On The Muslim World’s “Legitimate Grievances” With The West Reveals He Is On Their Side.

Obama-prayerSmirk

Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism” summit  wasn’t about countering Islamic terror, it was about countering “Islamophobia” and silencing any potential critics of Islam.

On top of ending the Internet as we know it this week via ‘secret’ regulations that Obama has told the FCC and FEC to impose, it is being learned that MUSLIM IMMIGRATION IS OUTPACING MEXICAN and SOUTH AMERICAN INVADERS in the USA thanks to generous refugee programs and transplants that Obama has also ‘secretly’ engaged in, including importing upwards of 7 MILLION Syrian ‘refugees’ – you know – the area where ISIS is headquartered.  Historians will write that never before in human history has a nation so spectacularly committed suicide at the hands of their own leaders as the United States of America has under Obama and his regime.

This piece by Pamela Gellar is beyond excellent to accurately describe what Obama is doing.  It needs to be spread far and wide, so this warning of the enemy in the White House can reach as many as possible.   When the unthinkable happens here again as it did on 9-11, we will know exactly who set us up for atrocities at the hand of Islamic Jihadists: Obama himself.

OBAMA’S JIHAD DENIAL SUMMIT: ‘WE ARE NOT AT WAR WITH ISLAM’

Obama has made us weak, vulnerable and ripe for attack. The next two years will be brutal.

by PAMELA GELLER

The one big takeaway from Obama’s speech on the Muslim world’s “legitimate” grievances with the West is simply this. He is on their side.

Obama’s closing remarks at his absurdly titled “Countering Violent Extremism” summit put his denial and obfuscation of the truth once again on display. It’s jihad — just say it. His speech wasn’t about countering Islamic terror, it was about countering “Islamophobia” (a thought crushing device designed to silence criticism of Islam – sharia enforcement). 

Obama can insist that these jihadists are not Islamic all he likes. But they believe they are. They believe they are righteous and devout Muslims, and that’s all that matters, not what Obama wants us to believe they are.

Obama readily criticized Christianity recently – having to go all the way back to the Crusades to do so. But for him, Islam is off limits. For both Islamic supremacists and Obama, Islam is above criticism – at a time when killers motivated by its teachings are wreaking havoc around the globe.

His big idea for fighting against violent extremism? “As part of this summit, we’re announcing that we’re going to increase our outreach to communities, including Muslim Americans. We’re going to step up our efforts to engage with partners and raise awareness so more communities understand how to protect their loved ones from becoming radicalized. We’ve got to devote more resources to these efforts.”

He has created a Counter-Terrorism Messaging center headed up by Rashad Hussain, a hafiz (a devout Muslim who has memorized the Quran). Obama is going to out-tweet the enemy with a Muslim Brotherhood supporter at the helm.

And “outreach” is not going to end the jihad. It is just a device, a distraction – the appearance of doing something without actually doing anything. Police and FBI agents go to a mosque and have a chat with the imam. They don’t investigate. Then they go away, and all that comes of it is that the imam knows he is dealing with weak people who are more interested in making sure he likes them than in stopping jihad.

And Obama talks about a shooting in North Carolina as if it were a war on Muslims, when the ongoing investigation seems to point to a mere parking dispute.

Obama vows to “confront squarely and honestly the twisted ideologies that these terrorist groups use to incite people to violence,” but Islam is off limits, so how can he confront it squarely and honestly? More lies.

Obama goes on to say that we shouldn’t “grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek. They are not religious leaders — they’re terrorists. And we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” Who is talking to? Why is he schooling us and proselytizing to us? If the Islamic State is not Islamic, what is it? They are Muslims and they are fighting for Islam, and no amount of tongue twisting and mental gymnastics is going to change that. Why won’t Obama take them at their word and deed?

Because he is a sympathizer. Because he makes Islam supreme and beyond reproach, just as Muslim supremacists do. Clearly he cares more about the glory of Islam then he does about the gore.

Obama gets twisted up in his own illogical logic. He goes on to say: “Al Qaeda and ISIL and groups like it are desperate for legitimacy. They try to portray themselves as religious leaders — holy warriors in defense of Islam. That’s why ISIL presumes to declare itself the ‘Islamic State.’ And they propagate the notion that America — and the West, generally — is at war with Islam. That’s how they recruit.” But Mr. President, how could they recruit if they get Islam so wrong? How can previously “moderate Muslims” be moved to slaughter, rape, and conquer in the cause of Islam if ISIS, ISIL, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, and other mujahadeen have it so wrong?

If anyone is perverted, it is Obama. He is perverting the truth.

Obama said, “They no more represent Islam than any madman who kills innocents in the name of God represents Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism.” Only Muslims claim to kill in the glory of Allah. Christian, Jews, Buddhists or Hindus do not; nor do they conquer nations in the cause of their G-d, as Muslims do.

Obama said, “These religious leaders and scholars preach that Islam calls for peace and for justice, and tolerance toward others; that terrorism is prohibited; that the Koran says whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.” More deception. Obama quotes a Jewish Talmudic quote that Muslims appropriated in the Koran. And it is the Jews that the Koran is referring to.

“Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.” — Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:9; Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 37a.

Obama is parsing the quote taken from verse 5:32 of the “Holy Koran.” But he is ripping it out of context and perverting its meaning. The full passage in the Koran applies to the “Children of Israel,” not to Muslims. And it’s followed in the Koran by 5:33, which calls for “execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land” for those who “wage war against Allah and his messenger, or spread mischief in the land.”

Obama studied the Quran as a child. Obama just named a hafiz (a devout Muslim who has memorized the whole Quran), Rahad Hussain, to head up his newly created Counter-Terrorism Center.

He knows. They know. He then goes on to explain that Muslims have real grievances: “There’s a strain of thought that doesn’t embrace ISIL’s tactics, doesn’t embrace violence, but does buy into the notion that the Muslim world has suffered historical grievances — sometimes that’s accurate.”

He doesn’t even pretend to support America.

He won’t call it jihad, but he insists that, “We have to tackle them [the ideologies] head on. And we can’t shy away from these discussions.”

Is he for real? That’s the one thing he won’t do.

He claims that Muslims join the jihad because they’re poor: “When millions of people — especially youth — are impoverished and have no hope for the future, when corruption inflicts daily humiliations on people, when there are no outlets by which people can express their concerns, resentments fester. The risk of instability and extremism grow. Where young people have no education, they are more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and radical ideas, because it’s not tested against anything else, they’ve got nothing to weigh. And we’ve seen this across the Middle East and North Africa.”

Here again, Obama attributes jihad to poverty, illiteracy, culture — anything but its true origins. State Department Spokesteenager Marie Harf said yesterday that the Islamic State jihadists just need jobs. She was rightly ridiculed for it. But Obama has now said the same thing.

He added: “Terrorist groups like al Qaeda and ISIL deliberately target their propaganda in the hopes of reaching and brainwashing young Muslims, especially those who may be disillusioned or wrestling with their identity. That’s the truth. The high-quality videos, the online magazines, the use of social media, terrorist Twitter accounts — it’s all designed to target today’s young people online, in cyberspace.”

How does that turn someone into a savage? I am sorry, Mr. President. No amount of slick video and online magazines would move me to betray my country, leave my home and slaughter, maim, rape in the cause of my religion. Mr. President, how did this misunderstanding of Islam become so widespread if it weren’t Islamic? Why are so many more American, British, European, Canadian Muslims joining the Islamic State?

And while Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State.

And his marshmallow summit of “Islamophobia” myths and lies does not address that.

No Such Thing As “Moderate Islam”. Such Is a Construct Of The Secular Left

coexistslayer

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most ignorant liberals in the West believe that Muslims believe.

The Arabic adage says that the ‘enemy of my enemy is my friend’, which goes to explain the unholy alliance between Radical Islam and Radical Secular Leftists.  They hate the affluent West and especially the Great and little Satan that represent the affluent Democracies  that showcase the failure of Islam as a benevolent religion on the planet.

We have heard endlessly from the Praetorian Media that most of the billions of Muslims on the planet are ‘moderate’ and Jihadists who cut off heads of bound but alive Westerners with steak knives is simply a small fraction of ‘radicals’.  That of course is a lie because like Global Warming, ‘Moderate Islam’ is a fairy tale construct of the Left.  Daniel Greenfield explains it perfectly.

Moderate Islam is Our New Religion

I have been searching for moderate Islam since September 11 and just like a lost sock in the dryer, it was in the last place I expected it to be.

There is no moderate Islam in the mosques or in Mecca. You won’t find it in the Koran or the Hadiths. If you want to find moderate Islam, browse the newspaper editorials after a terrorist attack or take a course on Islamic religion taught by a Unitarian Sociologist wearing fake native jewelry.

You can’t find a moderate Islam in Saudi Arabia or Iran, but you can find it in countless network news specials, articles and books about the two homelands of their respective brands of Islam.

You won’t find the fabled land of moderate Muslims in the east. You won’t even find it in the west. Like all myths it exists in the imagination of those who tell the stories. You won’t find a moderate Islam in the Koran, but you will find it in countless Western books about Islam.

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most liberals believe that Muslims believe.

The new multicultural theology of the West is moderate Islam. Moderate Islam is the perfect religion for a secular age since it isn’t a religion at all.

Take Islam, turn it inside out and you have moderate Islam. Take a Muslim who hasn’t been inside a mosque in a year, who can name the entire starting lineup of the San Diego Chargers, but can’t name Mohammed’s companions and you have a moderate Muslim. Or more accurately, a secular Muslim.

An early generation of Western leaders sought the affirmation of their national destinies in the divine. This generation of Western leaders seeks the affirmation of their secular liberalism in a moderate Islam.

Even if they have to make it up.

Without a moderate Islam the Socialist projects of Europe which depend on heavy immigration collapse. America’s War on Terror becomes the endless inescapable slog that the rise of ISIS has once again revealed it to be. Multiculturalism, post-nationalism and Third World Guiltism all implode.

Without moderate Muslims, nationalism returns, borders close and the right wins. That is what they fear.

If there is no moderate Islam, no moderate Mohammed, no moderate Allah, then the Socialist Kingdom of Heaven on Earth has to go in the rubbish bin. The grand coalitions in which LGBT activists and Islamists scream at Jews over Gaza aren’t the future; they’re the Weimar Republic on wheels.

Flash back to Obama in his tan suit wearily saying that he has no strategy for ISIS. The original plan was to capture Osama alive, give him a civilian trial, cut a deal with the moderate Taliban and announce the end of the War on Terror before the midterm elections.

So much for that.

Moderate Islam is a difficult faith. To believe in it you have to disregard over a thousand years of recorded history, theology, demographics and just about everything that predates 1965. You have to ignore the bearded men chopping off heads because they don’t represent the majority of Muslims.

Neither does Mohammed, who did his own fair share of headchopping.

The real Islam is a topic that non-Muslims of no faith who hold sacred only the platitudes of a post-everything society are eager to lecture on without knowing anything about it.

Their Islam is not the religion of Mohammed, the Koran, the Hadiths, the Caliphs or its practitioners in such places as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq or Indonesia. Their Islam is a religion that does not exist, but that they fervently believe must exist because without it their way of life is as doomed as the dodo.

They aren’t Muslims. They have no faith in Allah or the Koran. Instead they have faith in the goodness of an Islam that exists without resort to scriptures, theology or deity. This may seem strange to actual believers, but after all their own poor tattered scraps of Christianity or Judaism don’t bother paying too much attention to deities or scriptures except when it comes to cherry-picking quotes about tolerance.

Is it any wonder that they treat Islam the same way?

The true moderate Muslims are secular liberals of loosely Christian and Jewish persuasion who have invented and believe in a moderate Islam that doesn’t exist outside of their own heads. This secular Islam, which values all life, is dedicated to social justice and universal tolerance, is a counterpart of their own bastardized religions. And they are too afraid to wake up and realize that it doesn’t exist.

When American and European leaders insist that Islam has nothing to do with the latest Islamic atrocity, they are not referencing a religion practiced by Muslims, but an imaginary religion that they imagine Muslims must practice because the alternative is the end of everything that they believe in.

Their moderate Islam is light on the details, beyond standing for social justice, fighting Global Warming and supporting gay rights, because it is really multiculturalism wearing a fake beard. When a Western leader claims that the latest batch of Islamic terrorists don’t speak for Islam, he isn’t defending Muslims, he’s defending multiculturalism. He assumes that Muslims believe in multiculturalism because he does.

Moderate Islam is just multiculturalism misspelled. Its existence is a firm article of faith for those who believe in multiculturalism.

Dissuading a believer in moderate Muslims from his invented faith by citing the long trail of corpses or the hateful Hadiths that call for mass murder is futile because these are not the roots of his religion. He doesn’t know what a Hadith is nor does he care. As a social justice man in good standing, he attributes the violent track record of Islam to European colonialism and oppression.

He has never read the Koran. He has read a thousand articles about how Muslims are oppressed at the airport, in Gaza, in Burma and in Bugs Bunny cartoons. They are his new noble savages and he will not hear a word against them. Having colonized their identities in his imagination (despite the marked up copy of Edward Said’s Orientalism that he keeps by his bedside) he treats them as reflections of his ego.

When you say that moderate Muslims don’t exist, you are calling him a bad person. When you challenge Islam, you are attacking multiculturalism and he will call you a racist, regardless of the fact that Islam is as much of a race as Communism, Nazism or the Mickey Mouse Fan Club were races.

The moderate Muslim is an invention of the liberal academic, the secular theologian, the vapid politician and his shrill idiot cousin, the political activist. Like the money in the budgets that underpin their plans and the scientific evidence for Global Warming, he does not exist.

And it is not necessary that he should exist. It is only necessary that we have faith in his existence.

The degraded lefty descendants of Christians and Jews wait for a moderate Muslim messiah who will reconcile the impossibilities of their multicultural society by healing the conflicts between Islam and the West. Until then they find him, it necessary to believe, not in a divinity, but in the moderate Muslim.
