President Obama and his Administration, whether through incompetence or intent, supported the so-called “Arab Spring” which has now been revealed to be little more than a take over of much of the
Middle East by Muslim Extremists. Obama and his support
of Egyptian President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as Brotherhood
backed radicals in Libya
are just two examples of how this misguided policy backfired on the Administration
and is now having a devastating impact on this country and it’s allies.
Yesterday, the Administration finally admitted what
Middle East experts have said since the election of
President Morsi: That Egypt can no longer be considered our ally. The sweeping
changes in the Egyptian government and its policy and the placement of anti-west Muslim
Fundamentalists in key positions in the administration and the Egyptian military
all indicate that Egypt is
on the fast track to becoming another Iran.
Libya,now controlled by Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, is the site of one of the worst atrocities suffered by our Diplomatic Corps. in decades. It has become apparent that the reactionary nature of the adherents to this form of Islam and their predictable reaction to a 13 second video clip of a low budget U-Tube Video is being used as a convenient cover for a long planned strike against the
Something the Obama Administration is only now beginning to acknowledge.
Hiding behind the cloak of the word “Democracy” Radical Islamists have succeeded in tipping the balance of power and control their way in a significant portion of the
Middle East. The Obama Administration seems to be under
the delusion that because the new leadership talks the talk of true democracy,
that they will walk that walk. The Islamists’ actions show that this will not
be the case. In fact, the truth is that it is just the opposite.
Egypt,Christians have been beheaded and crucified in the presence of government
officials. Fundamentalist Sharia reforms are being implemented daily. In Libya,
Al-Qaeda is in the final stages of a three-part plan to make the State a
full-blown affiliate. Yemen
has seen AQAP, a virulent branch of Al-Qaeda, gain such popular support that
the government has been unable to move against it in any significant way. Every
Arab Spring country has seen an upturn in fundamentalist activity and violence.
In these countries we now see a crack down on freedom of speech, religious persecution, the oppression of women and minorities and a disturbing turn toward anti-United States and anti-Western violence. The Obama Administration, to date, has failed to officially recognize this disturbing trend or acknowledge it in any way. Only in the past day has the Administration admitted that the
attack might be more than just a random protest over a shoddily made You-Tube
video. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the
Administration has still spent $70,000 of taxpayer money to apologize to
Muslims for a video that has nothing to do with the US or it’s government.
In the area of
policy, Obama and his Administration have failed and failed miserably. Whether
it was out of sheer ignorance and incompetence, a result of the President’s
affinity for the ideology of Islam or the more likely choice, a combination of
both incompetence and a bias towards Islam, Obama and his cronies have exposed this
country to a threat from abroad and domestically as well. By adopting a doctrine of
apology and appeasement toward Radical Islam overseas and acceptance and tacit
approval of Islamist Sharia right here, at home, this President and his
Administration - itself made up of several prominent extremist Muslims – have
opened the door for a situation much worse than September 11.
I posit that our very way of life has been jeopardized in this President’s misguided attempt to embrace the sentimental memory of the ideology of his childhood, an ideology he is still drawn to even to this day. If this President is elected to a second term, look for Sharia to become a much more prominent part of our legal landscape and Islam to advance toward becoming the new religious foundation of this once, Christian Nation. The Arab Spring was more of an Arab Spring-Board... Right into the
United States of America!
