An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Genesis 15:18 In that same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land: from the river of Egypt unto the great river Euphrates.
Isaiah 57:21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
Ezekiel 13:10 And therefore, because they have deceived my people, saying, Peace, and there was no peace: and one built up a wall, and behold, the others daubed it with untempered mortar,
Ezekiel 37:22 And I will make them one people in the land, upon the mountains of Israel, and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two peoples, neither be divided anymore henceforth into two kingdoms.
Jeremiah 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people with sweet words, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.
Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people, and for mine heritage Israel: whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
So, ya don’t think it makes a bit of difference when the U.S. pokes her nose into Israel’s business? Don’t think it pisses God off when others demand Israel go against His word? Here’s just a few examples of the consequences. There are more. Oh sure, there will be many who say one has nothing to do with the other, but do you really want to find out by pushing Bibi into acting like Sharon?
God has said don’t divide the land. This is the land that God gave to His people. The only divisions were to be between the 12 tribes. That’s it! And ya sure as hell don’t wanna piss of God! Are people so naive that they are unable to realize that the so called Palestinians don’t want peace with Israel? Read the quran! The WHOLE thing!
Quran (2:191-193) And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)
Quran (8:12) I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them
Quran (9:30) And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
Quran (47:35) Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,
From their own mouths, they have declared there will be no peace, no matter what Israel, or the rest of the world (especially the U.S.) says or does! “Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of religion and faith. Long Live Fatah!” [PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]
Sharon made a huge mistake by forcing people from their homes. I pray Bibi won’t make that same mistake! Ariel Sharon did many great things for Israel, and he will be remembered for the sacrifices he made in the many wars fought from Israel’s recognition by the UN. Islam will always be at war with Israel, with Jews, and Christians. It seems that’s their only purpose in life….to destroy anyone that doesn’t accept the pedophile prophet.
It’s time for people to snap out of their stupidity….Islam is NOT a “religion of peace”. It is a cult of hate! The so called Palestinians will never give up their quest to destroy Israel. Read the Hamas charter!
The Iranians aren’t saddened by the death of Sharon:
It’s not just in Israel that the muslims are instructed to murder:
Leaders of Pakistan’s most deadly terrorist organization issued a recent “fatwa” – an Islamic edict – ordering their followers to kill journalists and those believed to be spies for the West, saying they are enemies of Islam.
Journalists? Those people who write in favor of the muslims for the most part? Well, at least U.S. journalist, at the instruction of the administration, no doubt!
On Saturday afternoon an Arab stabbed a 30-year-old Hareidi-religious man in the neck by the Damascus Gate (Sha’ar Shechem) of the Old City in Jerusalem. The injured man was evacuated in moderate condition to Sha’arei Tzedek Hospital in the capital city.
The ‘lone wolves’ will become more active.
Islamic extremist groups in Syria with ties to Al Qaeda are trying to identify, recruit and train Americans and other Westerners who have traveled there to get them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to senior American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.
Don’t be surprised when you read about the slaughter of innocents in the U.S. The media won’t identify the terrorists as terrorists. The government will continue their lies of ‘lone wolves’ and the ‘religion of peace’.
Muslims will lie, cheat, and steal, to worm their way into power. They will murder at the drop of a hat. Giving them land, and expecting peace in return is a fool’s errand!
Yes, I know… I said I wouldn’t be posting anything for a while, but THIS had to be copy and pasted! I notice that Kerry has NOT retracted, and continues to act as an emissary for the muzzies. Not cool dude!
The Hon. John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State,
The State Department,
November 8, 2013
Dear Secretary Kerry,
After listening to you declare repeatedly over the past weeks that “Israel’s settlements are illegitimate”, I respectfully wish to state, unequivocally, that you are mistaken and ill advised, both in law and in fact.
Pursuant to the “Oslo Accords”, and specifically the Israel-Palestinian Interim Agreement (1995), the “issue of settlements” is one of subjects to be negotiated in the permanent status negotiations. President Bill Clinton on behalf of the US, is signatory as witness to that agreement, together with the leaders of the EU, Russia, Egypt, Jordan and Norway.
Your statements serve to not only to prejudge this negotiating issue, but also to undermine the integrity of that agreement, as well as the very negotiations that you so enthusiastically advocate.
Your determination that Israel’s settlements are illegitimate cannot be legally substantiated. The oft-quoted prohibition on transferring population into occupied territory (Art. 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention) was, according to the International Committee Red Cross’s own official commentary of that convention, drafted in 1949 to prevent the forced, mass transfer of populations carried out by the Nazis in the Second World War. It was never intended to apply to Israel’s settlement activity. Attempts by the international community to attribute this article to Israel emanate from clear partisan motives, with which you, and the US are now identifying.
Upset at President Barack Obama’s policies on Iran and Syria, members of Saudi Arabia’s ruling family are threatening a rift with the United States that could take the alliance between Washington and the kingdom to its lowest point in years.
Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief is vowing that the kingdom will make a ‘major shift’ in relations with the United States to protest perceived American inaction over Syria’s civil war as well as recent U.S. overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.
Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that the United States had failed to act effectively against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.
If the Saudis wants a war with Syria, why the blazes don’t they do it themselves? Why is it the responsibility of the U.S. to do their dirty work? Are we their servants? I don’t bleepin’ think so! And if I’m not mistaken, the UN is destroying all the manufacturing facilities for the chemical weapons, and the weapons themselves.
Apparently, they are supporting the islamists. That’s the only reason I can think of for them to get their knickers in a twist. They want Syria to be like them. Considering the Saudis murder their own citizens at random, for little reason, all religions other than islam, which is NOT a religion, but a cult, are illegal, and want to spread their evil, I can’t think of a single reason we should prop there sorry asses up. Yeah, they have oil, but then, so do we.
And by the way….there are no such thing as Palestinians! The “conflict” is between muslims and a country that has every right to exist, even though the muzzies want to destroy her. THEY are our ally, not any muzzie country, even if they claim to be.
Apparently, the pretender in chief hasn’t really been paying attention. Well, either that, or he just doesn’t give a damn. I mean, after all, they’re just Christians, so it doesn’t matter if they are threatened with being beheaded unless they convert, or out right murdered. He wants to help the ‘rebels’. And who is it that are killing Christians? That would be those same ‘rebels’ that Obama wants to arm in Syria. Lucky for him, it looks like Putin has given him a way out of the mess he has created for himself. The next time he blathers about ‘credibility‘, he might want to remember….he has none!
The administration, and some ‘human right’ group, are claiming that it was the Assad regime that was the culprit that used the WMDs. I have my doubts. I’m always very suspicious of any bunch that says they are a ‘human rights’ group. Where are these people when little girls are being brutalized?
The idea Obama wanted to give arms to those who have made no secret of their intent, no matter what name the group goes by, is beyond appalling! What’s even MORE appalling is the idea that our own CIA is busy, in Jordon, training these so called rebels, and no doubt helping them sneak into Syria to murder more innocent men, women, and children!
IF Assad agrees to Putin’s plan, and turns over the chemical weapons to the UN, or some other useless bunch of weasels, who’s to say that those same weasels won’t turn them over to some favored rogue nation to use on some other group of people they don’t much care for, like say….patriotic Americans?
So, I have a question: If Barack Hussein Obama arms the ‘rebels’, aka al Qaeda, al Nursa Front, etc., will he be guilty of aiding the enemy of the U.S.? Isn’t that treason?
It’s hard to tell who the players are without a program. Unfortunately, there isn’t one available. If you listen to the media, and yes, I am including FNC in with ‘the media’, the bad guy is Bashar al-Assad, the dictator of Syria. The bad guys are also on the side of the ‘rebels’, even though John Kerry, the feckless Secretary of State, says that the majority of them are ‘moderates’. Paleeeeeze! Does he really think we’re stupid? Well, most in the elitist political class do believe we’re dumb as a box of rocks, so it’s not surprising. I thought it was hilarious when Putin flat out called him a liar. Shoot, we’ve known that for quite a while now.
We have some facts, but not near enough to go to war over. It’s a fact that chemical weapons were used. The problem is, we don’t know which side used them. Most of the media, and the administration, say it was Assad. One or two of the talking heads will bring up the evidence that it was the ‘rebels’. Shoot, even the ‘rebels’ said they are the ones who used them, accidentally killing civilians. I don’t think they do anything by accident, except blow themselves up prematurely. We know there are a lot of foreigners who have joined the ‘rebels’. Foreigners, meaning they are NOT Syrians fighting against Assad’s forces to gain liberty from a dictatorship.
It’s also a fact that the ‘rebels’ have targeted Christians, slaughtering whole villages, and threatening more such actions. It’s a fact that it is Assad’s forces who are trying to protect the Christians against the brutality of the rebels. If Obama really wants to do something ‘noble’, he might consider sending in help to save the Christians in Syria from extermination. That would impress me! Of course, that won’t happen. He doesn’t care about them, even though he has professed to BE a Christian. I can profess to be a Lamborghini, and stand in the garage, but that don’t make it so! Since Obama has done nothing to help the Christians in Egypt who have been attacked on a regular basis, it’s pretty much a sure bet he won’t lift a finger to help the Syrian Christians.
It’s a fact that the ‘rebels’ summarily execute members of Assad’s army. Visual evidence is pretty convincing, in my humble opinion. We haven’t seen any evidence of Assad’s troops executing ‘rebels’ that have their hands bound behind their backs and on their knees when a bullet is put in the back of their heads. I’m not saying is hasn’t happened, but there’s been no eye witness accounts, or videos posted on YouTube.
It’s a fact that just a few years ago, Assad was hailed as a reformer, and doing the best he could for his people. Now, he’s a really bad guy, and must be removed. So, which is he? This is quite confusing. It’s my understanding, when this whole thing started, the actual Syrian rebels wanted a secular nation, with more freedom from the liberty crushing dictatorship. Now, it seems with so many foreign fighters joining in, the goal is an islamist state, rather like the Muslim Brotherhood imposed on Egypt, which has now been removed. The fighting continues in Egypt, with the Mosi supporters rioting, and the anti-islamists Morsi opposers and Christians being targeted. I see quite a few parallels, but perhaps, that’s just me.
It’s a fact there is no evidence that Syria is a threat to the United States’ national security. We do have issues right here at home that need to address that ARE a threat to our security, but since we have an administration that doesn’t much care for the U.S., or her citizens, this will never be of concern to them. Securing our borders would be a real good idea because that IS a threat, with drug thugs and terrorists sneaking over, not to mention the millions of illegal invaders, breaking our laws. But, once again, this administration ignores the laws of the land, and will only enforce the ones he likes.
No, bombing Syria is not a good idea, I don’t care what John McCain says. I also don’t care that he was playing poker during the Senate hearings. Hell, I would too! The droning of administration officials can get extremely boring.
Who knows where those bombs will hit! Granted, our troops are real good at what they do, but nothing is a sure thing. What if they do hit the chemical stockpiles? What about the civilians around the area? We’ll be accused of war crimes, even though it wouldn’t be intentional. If the only reason Obama wants to bomb Syria is to save face, then he’s a bigger fool than I thought, not to mention excessively egotistical! He states that it’s the Congress’ credibility that’s on the line, the world community, which doesn’t exist…anybody and everybody else would be at fault, even though HE IS the one that pulled out his crayon and drew the ‘red line’. He has made the U.S. a laughing stock. The world doesn’t trust him. Shoot, most thinking people don’t trust him. He is not a commander. He knows nothing about how to run, and win, a war. He’s basically knows nothing about how to run anything!
If Congress has any common sense, they will deny Obama’s request to ‘fire a shot across the bow’. Until we know who it is we’d be aiding, it would be foolish to butt our nose into Syria’s business. BOTH sides are the ‘bad guys’. It’s evil battling evil. Why should the U.S. aid evil? As Ted Cruz stated, the U.S. should not be al Qaeda’s air force! These are the same people who flew planes into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksfield, PA murdering 2,976 men, women and children. No matter what they are calling themselves, they are all connected and are hell bent on slaughtering innocent people who don’t agree with them.
I can’t state it strongly enough. NO WAR WITH SYRIA….EITHER SIDE!!! Provide humanitarian aid if we must, although that’s what the U.N. is suppose to be doing, but we’re usually the ones footing the bill. Send the bill to Saudi Arabia, they have plenty of money, and should be aiding the refugees from Syria! But I will NOT support any military action that involved aiding islamists!
NO MEANS NO!
A year ago, President Barack Obama used the phrase “red line” twice, to make the point that Syria’s use of chemical weapons “would change my calculations significantly” on intervening in the civil war.
Let’s see…a video from August 21, 2012, uploaded by UK Telegraph:
But on Wednesday in Sweden — echoing comments made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday — Obama told reporters, “First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war.
He can always count on Pelosi, right or wrong! Now, we have another video from UK Telegraph, uploaded December 4, 2012.
“Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty,” and when it passed the Syria Accountability Act, Obama added.
It’s Congress’ fault he said the words? Gotcha. So, it’ll be Congress’ fault if they approve this foolish action, and it goes south. Makes perfect sense from a guy that’s never taken responsibility for ANYTHING, but credit for things he didn’t do. Do ya ever get dizzy listening to this guy? Watching his antics? I sure do.
“And so when I said in a press conference (last year), that my calculus about what’s happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, um — that wasn’t something I just kind of made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air. There’s a reason for it.”
Well, yes, the Geneva Convention was quite explicit when it came to the use of mustard gas during WWI. I don’t think they had a clue that there would be a rise in evil, as in the muslims, who refused to play by the rules laid out nearly 100 years ago. Honor isn’t part of their vocabulary, except when it comes to murdering their wives and daughters.
However, it WAS Barack Hussein Obama who used the words ‘red line’, and it was him making the threats to hold Asad accountable, whether or not he was the one who was using the WMD. So, after knowing the weapon was used the first time, Obama did nothing. That red line turned pink. Now that it’s been done a second time, he’s allowing the bad guys, whichever side it may be cuz they’re BOTH bad guys, move these weapons around, get them out of the line of sight, leave the area, whatever. Even I know ya don’t tell the enemy what you are planning to do, but I guess since Obama is a rank amateur, he hasn’t learned that lesson.
“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
That would be the same regime that Pelosi snuck off to meet with without approval? And the one with whom Kerry chowed down? The regime that was referred to as a ‘reformer’? THAT regime? Oh yes…it’s all becoming so clear now.
…McCain, Graham, and BO
Only 5 reasons? Well, I’ll give Congress one more reason….everything Obama has laid a finger on since he was sworn in as POTUS has turned to pure caca!! From the economy, to Libya, we have seen nothing positive come out of this regime! The best thing he could do right now, since we can’t turn back the clock, is to sit down and STFU! His mouth has spewed more crap than a garbage truck in NYC! And please, for the love of all that’s holy…take away his crayons!
The fact that Pelosi AND Bonehead are supporting this fiasco should be all the American people need to know. Since the whole world knows that Obama has no support, financial or militarily, from the international community, I guess he needs a few lapdogs to make him feel better. It won’t do a damn thing to solve the ‘crisis’, but he’ll sure be patting himself on the back because he got a RINO in his corner. Yeah…great reason to bomb a country.
There is no imminent threat to U.S. national security in Syria, but we do have one on our own borders. How ’bout we bomb there instead? Makes about as much sense!
120,000 people have been killed over the course of this civil unrest, and Obama had no concern for them. An entire Christian village was slaughtered, but no one says a word. One side or the other, and honestly, I am leaning towards the so called rebels on this, use chemical weapons, and FINALLY Obama notices? Didn’t he notice the last time? Was it just in recent weeks that he was paying attention, or has he been too busy out on the links, and jetting around the world, on our dime, to take note of the thousands who have died, on both sides?
If the Saudis want to foot the bill, and send their own sons and daughters to fight, then let them. If Jordon is concerned, they can damn sure cough up the money and a few of their kids. If ANYONE in the Arab world gives a damn, then they should step up. But alas, they don’t care. Muslims killing muslims? I have no problem either. Sending our kids to do THEIR dirty work? Oh, you can bet I care… a LOT! Our troops have been stretched so thin, have been decimated by Obama’s policies, and treated like dirt by this administration. Do you really think they give a damn either?
I guess you could say I am 100% against this action! We can’t afford it, our troops are worn out, and every time Obama gets involved, we end up supporting the WRONG side. With Syria, there is no right so, so why put ourselves in the middle of the whole shebang? Makes NO sense!!
But at least we now know where Saddam sent his WMDs! Those pictures Powell took to the U.N. were pretty dead on, weren’t they.
5 Reasons Congress Should Press Obama on Syria
Brett Schaefer – The Foundry
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) both endorsed military action in Syria yesterday, but it’s unclear whether President Obama has sufficient support in Congress for a resolution authorizing such action.
House and Senate hearings this week give Members of Congress an opportunity to question the Obama Administration on Syria and its strategy—and question they should. Here are just five reasons Congress should press the Administration for answers.
I was curious what some folks were saying about the Syria situation, so since I haven’t read too many recently due to…well…anyways… I thought I’d take a peek at some of the opinions ’round about.
A couple of days ago we have something a bit prophetic, don’cha think?
Angy White Dude has a question.
Glad I’m not the only one who is concerned about the ‘horn tooting’. I don’t trust ‘em either!
When even the Brits won’t go along with the dude, you know he’s definitely reaping what he has sown!
Here, we get a VERY chilling question.
When Obama pulled out his red crayon, and talked about lines, Christian leaders in Egypt want to know…where is THEIR red line.
If you’ve been watching the news, you’ll know they ALL keep saying that it was Asad that used chemical weapons on his own people. Well, Walid Shoebat begs to differ. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to get to the bottom of just WHO used the weapons before going off half cocked, and giving support to the terrorists?
Here it’s all broken down for ya!
Is it possible that this so called commander in chief really wants our Christian sons and daughters to fight and die for people who want to kill our Christian sons and daughters?
Obama’s “viagra”? Cute.
First ‘viagra’, now stoneless? I’m getting very confused.
Iran’s threats should be of concern to everyone, but we all know that Obama doesn’t give a damn about Israel, OR the U.S.
Thanks to Obama’s feckless policies, we can’t afford to bomb Syria. I don’t think popguns would do the trick, do you?
And you KNOW what the “commander in chief” did after his little speech today, right? What he always does! FORE!!
Obama is so hot to bomb Syria, aiding the same people (jihadists) who were responsible for the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. I suppose to an anti American president, it makes sense. But to THIS pro American citizen, it is more than a little disturbing.
There’s lots more out there, but I’m hungry… for a change… so I’m gonna munch on a nice buttery corn cob!
Perhaps Obama should have taken a stronger stand when the whole works hit the fan…a couple of years ago? I wonder if Valerie wouldn’t let him, or advised him not to, or maybe she told him to stamp his foot, whine, and draw a line with his red crayon?
What the people in this country need to realize is what the rest of the world already knows…we do NOT have a Commander in Chief. We have, as Judge Jeanine put it, a ‘paper tiger’. Shoot, I wouldn’t even call him a tiger, paper or otherwise. What we have, ladies and gentlemen, is a major wuss, a pantywaiste, taking up space in the White House, spending money like a…tin pot dictator, and destroying what few liberties we had left.
Should we care that women and children are being killed? Yes, we should, no matter the method, but it seems we are selective in our outrage. How many died in Rwanda, and we did nothing? How many died in the Sudan, and we did nothing? How many women and children are being brutalized in EVERY muslim country, and we do NOTHING? (Let’s not forget the MILLIONS of children that have been ripped apart in the most brutal manner right here in the U.S. of A.!) Yet now, because there were supposedly (and I don’t doubt there were) chemical weapons involved, Chicken Little wants to throw a few bombs at the country, and say, “See? I’m a tough guy!”?
The biggest problem I see is that we honestly do not know WHO used those weapons. Reports confirm they were used, but the who is in dispute. Of course, because the Useless Numnuts don’t like Asad, they say his forces did it. Is he even in the country? Hmmm… Then there are other reports, obviously ignored by the administration, and ALL the media, with the exception of a few internet sources, that say the ‘rebels’ have WMDs stashed under a variety of houses in the area. Why ignore this information, and not even take it into consideration? Because this administration is actually on the side of the jihadists? Well, that would be my first thought. Honestly, I’m more inclined to believe Walid Shoebat over the UN and this feckless administration.
Perhaps this rebellion started with the hopes of getting the boot off the neck of the common folks, but it has since morphed into another islamists ‘Arab Spring’…summer….winter….fall. They have no problem killing themselves, and any innocents, all in the name of some made up god. They’ve said so!
So, do we bomb Syria? NO. Do we aid the ‘rebels’? HELL NO. The enemy of our enemy is still our enemy, especially when it comes that THAT part of the world. Do we aid Asad? Pfft! Paleeeeze! So, what do we do? Not a damn thing! Let them kill each other off! I don’t see any Arab countries stepping up to the plate…they never do! Nope. It’s the Western countries that lose their young men and women attempting to ‘save’ a muzzie country from themselves. No one in the region ever condemns the brutality of their fellow muslims. Why would they? They are just as brutal. And hey, let’s not forget the push to brutalize young Christian girls…their imans says it’s okie dokie.
Ok, so what’s the answer? Get what few Christians are left in the country OUT, and let the muzzies blow themselves up. When evil fights evil…there is no right side.
What to Do in Syria
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Reports are rampant that the Obama Administration will call for U.S. missile strikes against the regime in Syria at any time now.
That country is embroiled in a civil war, with opposition forces fighting dictator Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. has interests to protect in the region, but becoming directly involved in this civil war isn’t the answer, Heritage experts say. And the question of what to do in the conflict isn’t as simple as giving aid to the Syrian people, because Islamist terrorist groups are blending with the opposition and jockeying for power.
Heritage Middle East expert James Phillips has called the Obama Administration’s policy on Syria “a strategic and moral failure.” Here, Phillips and Heritage’s E. W. Richardson Fellow, James Carafano, answer some key questions about the Obama Administration’s current decision point.
Sure hope Bob took his BP meds. (a couple of thoughts below)
A couple of things here. Obviously, the Middle East is not a continent, but I knew what he was talking about. Second item….does no one else remember that Colin Powell went to the U.N. with photos of trucks going from Iraq into Syria? Now, it might just be me, but I think Hussein, as in Saddam, not Barack, shipped what he had into that country before we had a chance to do a whack a mole on ‘em. Just a thought.
(My 2 cents below video.)
As much outrage as many Americans felt when Obama proclaimed, “We are no longer a Christian nation!”, I fear he just might be right. If we were a Christian nation, wouldn’t we be standing by while our brothers and sisters in faith were being targeted? The destruction of Christian churches, homes, businesses is wide spread, yet the media is largely silent, and one brief mention, out of necessity I suppose, by the President of the United States brings shame on ALL of us.
I wonder how many churches in the U.S. are taking time out to pray for the Copts? I wonder if many of them even know who the Copts are, or even care? In case you are as ignorant of these people, as many appear to be, let me clue you in….the Copts ARE EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS! Yes, they are Christians! Christianity was the majority faith in Egypt for several hundreds years, when the Muslims came crashing in, taking over. They remained the majority faith until about the mid 10th century. Today, there are only about 800,000 Copts left in a nation (Egypt) of approximately 82 million people.
One of the many things I find extremely disturbing is the support that Obama has shown for the Muslim Brotherhood, and his continued support of such murderous thugs. They are, first, and foremost, a terrorist organization, with an Islamic political agenda that, in NO way, is compatible with any form of democracy. Is there something lacking in this man’s character that he would prefer the slaughter of innocent men, women, and children, over a stable Egypt? Yes, honestly, I do believe there is something very wrong. He has shown a complete lack of character, and perhaps, is without a soul. If he was capable of rational thought, if he was as intelligent as so many believe him to be, then he would be very aware of the history of the Muslim Brotherhood, and would do all in his, and our, power to make sure they never again darkened the door of ANY nation, but most especially Egypt, at this most volatile time.
In 2005, a former Kuwaiti Minister of Education, Dr. Ahmad al-Rabi’, wrote in the Saudi-owned Asharq al-awsat newspaper: “The beginnings of all the religious terrorism that we are witnessing today were int he Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology .. all those who worked with bin-Laden and al-Qaida went out under the mandate of the Muslim Brotherhood.” (source)
As a nation, we should be backing the Egyptian military in their quest to restore sanity in an area gone extremely mad. Instead, Barack Hussein Obama, contrary to recent White House spokesman statement to the contrary, has taken the side of the jihadists, as has Secretary of State, John Kerry, and the doddering senior Senator from Arizona, John McCain. The shame we should feel as a nation at these men’s actions is apparently lost. We no longer recognize shame as a legitimate deterrent to much of anything.
If the American President was not a prisoner to his own pro-Muslim Brotherhood agenda, the U.S. Administration would now be applauding the Egyptian military’s crackdown on the anti-Western, anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Muslim Brotherhood thugs who have instigated horrific violence in Cairo and throughout much of the country. (source)
No decent American, in all good conscience, can support the Obama regime’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood. They claim Morsi was democratically elected, however, no one can be ‘democratically elected’ unless ALL eligible voters are allowed to cast their vote for the candidate of their choice, and the Copts were not allowed to participate, through REAL voter intimidation. Threats of violence kept many would be voters away from the polls that assured a Morsi victory.
Does the name Alexander Tawss sound familiar? No? I’m not surprised. He’s the man who attempted to scare off a muslim mob with a shot fired into the air. It was a fatal mistake. Even though he did not fire at a person, but into the air, he was slaughtered…butchered like cattle. Why? Because he dared to try to save his neighborhood from the roaming bands of murderous thugs.
It is way past time for us to remember our Founders, and for what they stood. Our Judeo-Christian foundings are the enemy of Islam, and apparently, to our own president. WE must stand with the One True God, and cease to placate the followers of evil.
I stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ, in Egypt, and around the world. I stand with Israel. I do NOT stand with pedophile worshiping murderers, nor do I stand with their “American” mouthpiece, Obama.
An American al-Qaeda terrorist has called for more attacks on Western diplomats in the Arab world, praising the killers of the US ambassador to Libya on Sept. 11 last year, a US-based monitoring group said on Sunday.
Western nations shut embassies across the Middle East and North Africa early this month, after a warning of a possible terror attack. Many have reopened, and Britain said its Yemen embassy would open on Sunday after being closed for 12 days.
Adam Gadahn, a California-born convert to Islam with a $1 million US price on his head, appealed to wealthy Muslims to offer terrorists rewards to kill ambassadors in the region, citing bounty set for killing the US ambassador to Yemen, Washington-based SITE monitoring group said.
A muslim is a muslim is a muslim….no matter where he, or she was born. And muslims do not mix with freedom. They hate. They hate anyone who is not of their cult of death.
The Yemen-based branch of al-Qaeda last year offered 3 kg (106 ounces) of gold for the killing of the US ambassador in Sanaa or 5 million rials ($23,350) for an American soldier in the impoverished Arab state.
Wait a minute. I thought Obama said al Qaeda was on the run? Yeah…to every muslim country in the world, and infiltrating every other county they can, including the U.S. of A. They’ve been spreading out before we ever came on the scene. We did NOT create this monster….ISLAM DID! Contrary to what that fool in Washington, or Martha’s Vineyard thinks, we have been at war with Isalm for centuries. Well, actually, they have been at war with us….every CIVILIZED country in the world. They are animals who will stop at nothing to spread their evil, including murdering men, women, and children, to achieve their goal of a caliphate.
With conditions continuing to deteriorate in Syria, the Obama administration is making a major policy shift by agreeing for the first time to allow thousands of new Syrian refugees into the United States, The Cable has learned.
The numbers are relatively small: just 2,000 refugees, compared to an estimated two million people who have fled Syria during the civil war. But it’s a significant increase from the 90 or so Syrian refugees who have been permanently admitted to the U.S. in the last two years. And it’s not entirely uncontroversial. The refugees, mostly women and children, will be screened for terrorist ties — a process that could take a year or more to complete.
Unlike previous efforts by the Department of Homeland Security to give temporary protected status to Syrians already in the United States, the State Department effort will bring in Syrians from overseas for permanent resettlement in America.
I have as much compassion for the plight of people in a ware torn nation as the next person, but I don’t see ol’ Obama doing a DAMN thing to help the Christians in these countries that are being slaughtered by the hundreds. Has he offered THEM a safe haven? Nope! He doesn’t want Christians coming here. Those same folks who have the same values as the majority of this country, not to mention the Founders. He wants muzzies so he can continue the destruction of our nation that was FOUNDED on the Judeo-Christian values and belief system. You know the one that considers life precious, and doesn’t murder and maim in the name of their false god.
We’re broke, people are taking whatever job they can find, if they can find one, and usually it’s only part time, and this dipwad is giving OUR money to a bunch of murderous thugs for a fake celebration to a fake god and his fake prophet? This has GOT to stop. The man is totally enamored of the murderers, and cares NOTHING for those who are in dire straights right here in his back yard!
Let’s face it! Obama was not raised with Judeo-Christian values. He was not raised by people who loved this nation, but by communists who were hell bent on destroying her, and those are the ‘values’ he brought to the Oval Office. This is NOT a person who should be in the White House, much less a dog catcher. Oh, that’s right…the muzzies hate dogs. I wonder what happened to Bo? Hmmm…
Reality snap! The U.S. Constitution and the so called muzzie holy book do NOT mesh! There will be no assimilating into our culture. No, these people are trying to CHANGE our culture to match their third world barbarism! This will not….MUST not….stand!
There are a LOT of things Obama is quite confused about, and doesn’t understand. Apparently, so is Heritage. Since we are NOT a democracy, and were never intended to be one, our influence anywhere shouldn’t be towards founding one, since we unwashed masses have learned from history just how dangerous a democracy can be. But perhaps, that’s for another post, or maybe a copy and paste from P/H.
As the so called ‘Arab spring’ unfolded, we watched as rioters destroys pieces of history and assaulted correspondents. That told me a great deal about those who had taken to the streets. Now, don’t get me wrong, I know there were some who sincerely were looking for a change in the circumstances, and were hoping for the betterment of their country. Less oppression, more freedom…that sort of thing that ALL human are entitled to. With the supposed election of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi, people who pay attention KNEW that even more trouble was in the works. Apparently, either Obama is a closet muzzie, is in the pocket of the muzzies, or is just plain ignorant. Perhaps all three?
Unless ALL the citizens are allowed to vote, it’s not really a legitimate election. Since Christians were threatened, and not allowed to vote, I’d have to say it was not a legitimate election. Does anyone else find it odd that Obama speaks out in support of evil, but never lifts a finger to help the oppressed? For someone who claims to be a Christian, which we all know, he isn’t, he could mask his disdain of us a bit better, don’t you think? Shouldn’t he speak out against the slaughter of innocents, no matter where they live? (Even in a womb.) But no. What this tells me is he is actually the first 2 of the 3 listed above.
When you watch the suppose ‘leader of the free world’ turn that free world into a third world, you have to question the motives. We watch more and more of our freedoms dissolve on his watch, while observing his support of a muslim tyrant, supporting the murder of innocent men, women, and children, oppressing all others not in the inner circle, equally.
I’d say Mr Obama understands all too well what he is doing, when it comes to the Middle East, and the constant warring among the different factions of Islam. He is aiding in the re-establishment of the Caliphate.
Hmmmm…. I wonder how his wife will take to wearing a burlap sack? Has to be an improvement over some of the gaudy duds she sports around the world….on OUR dime.
Why Does Egypt’s Turmoil Matter to Us?
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Egypt has been rocked by protests that some say are the largest in history and has unseated its second leader in three years. It’s a bit difficult for us to imagine ousting a president in such a way—so what do the events in Egypt mean to Americans?
The Obama Administration has bungled the entire Egyptian revolution, Heritage experts say, and that will have lasting consequences.
President Obama backed the administration of Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, who was just ousted by the protesters and the military. As Heritage expert James Phillips noted, “Egyptian protesters have been carrying signs denouncing President Obama for supporting terrorism, because they are disappointed by Obama’s uncritical support for Morsi, whom they consider to be a terrorist.”
