It has rightly been said that Israel is on the front lines of the war against Islamic terror and Muslim supremacism, serving as America’s advance guard. But the front lines are migrating homeward. In effect, America is Israel writ large, hated and reviled by multitudes, the economic and geopolitical target of hostile nations, and riddled with Islamic sleeper cells and lone jihadists waiting for the opportunity to create havoc. And Sderot, in one way or another, despite the svelte and consoling pronouncements of a rogue president, is the plausible future of many American cities.
The local authorities knew exactly what was going on. Yet still they did nothing. Why?
It’s because the kind of politically correct, left-leaning and basically rather thick people that local authorities like Rotherham Council tend to have working for them are so paralysed by modish concerns about cultural sensitivity that they have made an obscene judgement call: better to allow at least 1400 kids to be hideously abused than to be thought guilty of the far greater crimes of being thought a bit racist or accidentally offending someone.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly bemoaned the lot of the kidnapped girls. “It’s abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible,” she said from a position to help offer “the fullest response possible.”
But she repeatedly refused to designate Boko Haram a “foreign terrorist organization,” despite the countless atrocities it had already committed; despite that under her tenure Boko Haram had boasted that it would “strike fear into the Christians of the power of Islam by kidnapping their women,” and despite extensive urging from the CIA, FBI, Justice Department, and several congressmen and senators.
Islamic apologists spent the last few decades insisting that Islamic laws involving the rape of female prisoners were invented by “Islamophobes”. And even if they weren’t, surely no modern Muslim Jihadist force would implement them. Now, as in so many other things, ISIS has proven them wrong.
Across the Middle East and N. Africa from Libya, Egypt, to Syria and Iraq we have witnessed President Obama help virtually every known terrorist group acquire country after country in the guise of freedom and liberation. Yet, this so called freedom has resulted in the mass extermination of anyone who doesn’t share the creed of the jihadists and liberation has become subjugation.
From trying his best to keep the economy down and unemployment numbers up by wanting amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, to putting the final nail in the economic coffin in the form of climate change laws to losing what friends we had in the world because of a lousy foreign policy, this President has done everything possible to destroy this country. It isn’t because the President is incompetent as a leader, as many believe; it is due to his sheer will to bring this country down.
Barack Hussein Obama shocked, saddened, and disappointed millions of patriotic Americans when, upon returning from his long, but totally undeserved, vacation he blithely announced that his administration does NOT YET have a strategy for dealing with ISIL, which is quite disconcerting because, as nearly everyone but Obama knows, ISIL is the most vicious, subhuman terrorist group ever to threaten modern civilization at large, and America in particular.
Kathy Shaidle’s comment on this appalling piece is excellent: “I would die before I would repeat those words under any circumstances. And yes, there is a ‘peaceful verse for every violent one.’ However, Muslims use abrogation to decide which verses are more authoritative. The later violent (‘sword’) verses cancel out the earlier, peaceful ones. ‘The odds are that if you are assailed by a radical Islamist in the streets of London or Toronto, it will be with words not bullets.’ You forgot to mention knives. Just ask Lee Rigby. Oh wait… you can’t… Everything I needed to know about Islam, I learned on September 11, 2001. Take your talk of tolerance and understanding to a Muslim majority country and see how you fare.”
More than 134,000 people signed a petition asking the Obama administration to demand the release of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison. Tahmooressi, who is reportedly suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, has been imprisoned for nearly five months after being arrested for unintentionally crossing into Mexico with firearms.
The White House responded to the popular petition on Friday, calling for Mexican authorities to handle the Marine’s case “expeditiously” rather than demanding his release.
