Muslim in Chief

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

 

The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods. …

– Deuteronomy 28:36

If you thought the U.N. International Baccalaureate and federal No Child Left Behind educational schemes were bad enough, you might want to look a little deeper. In light of the 9/11 attacks, you would think the current administration would use a little prudence if it were sincerely concerned about a radical Muslim threat. When Obama took his oath of office, he instead defied America in numerous ways. He has given $1.5 billion to Muslim-led Egypt in foreign aid, shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood declared war on the United States. This is the same man that said America is “no longer a Christian nation,” followed by a reference that America may be described as a Muslim nation.

Israel Gaza conflict – wider war?

Members of the Israel Defense Forces on the Golan Heights. What has the ASA to say to them?

The Israel Gaza conflict broke out again this week. It has simmered for seven years, and hints of a breakout came when the Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS in Arabic) seized power in Gaza and governed it their own way. Now the armies of Israel have had enough. But they also have evidence that Iranian advisers helped HAMAS this time. This war might become much wider, and involve all the Middle East.

Terrorist attack: ask the obvious questions

Osama Bin Laden compound. A terrorist attack to kill an ambassador, but not to avenge this?

On September 11, 2012, America experienced another terrorist attack, but this time it was on foreign soil. To be clear, our embassies in foreign lands are supposed to be “American.” They are a little piece of real estate that is an extension of American soil in whatever land they are located. Many questions are arising amidst this tragedy.

Muslim mobs kill ambassador, storm embassy

Flag of Egypt. What happened in Egypt is a metaphor for American policy failures in the Middle East.

Yesterday, Muslim street mobs scaled the wall of the United States Embassy in Cairo and attacked and burned the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya. The mob even killed the US Ambassador to Libya when he came to get his employees out of the mission. And US officials stunned the world—by apologizing to the mobs.

Israel and Iran: time has run out

Sar Kenan, ancient gateway into Israel from the north.

Today the Prime Minister of Israel did something heads of state don’t normally do. He roared at an ambassador in his office. He told American Ambassador Dan Shapiro that “time has run out.” Specifically the time to talk Iran out of making enough weapons-grade uranium for one or more bombs is now past.

Strait of Hormuz to close?

Flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Did Obama try to wangle an October Surprise in Iran? Maybe, but he probably didn't get it.

Officials from Iran threatened the world with another oil shock over the weekend. A ranking general said that he had plans in place to close the Strait of Hormuz. The Majlis, or parliament, is debating a bill to do just that. But the Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region are looking for ways to bypass the Strait of Hormuz. And the US Navy has its own plans to keep the Strait open.

Israel prepares for protest, war

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Israel is preparing for the largest mass protest it has ever endured, and might also be preparing to strike Iran, whatever the world thinks.

Hot mike catches Obama talking treason

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

The hot mike, the microphone left “live” after a politician or other dignitary has made a speech, is the latest weapon in the arsenal of the Fourth Estate. Whether most members of that Estate appreciate it is another issue. But the value of the hot mike is indisputable. Case in point: the man now holding office as President, Barack H. Obama, told his nominal counterpart, Dimitry Medvedev, that after the election, he (Obama) will be able to give the Russians everything they ask for. That is treason.

The Spring Break that wasn’t

Useful idiots make the media of not much better use than to wrap fish.

Barack Obama’s daughter went for spring break in Oaxaca, Mexico. That in itself is yet another example of a First Family luxuriating at American taxpayers’ expense. But why did so many media organs, after covering it, abruptly erase their own articles?
