Someone recently remarked that Obama is a one-man sleeper cell after hearing about his National Prayer Breakfast remarks and refusal to aid Jordan against ISIS. Sadly, his remark could not have been more accurate. Obama patiently and silently planned, as one of many in an intentional sleeper cell, to advance in America what Islam is advancing worldwide.
Muslims have overtaken most of the ground on which Jesus walked, bled, and died, from Bethlehem to Nazareth to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. Muslims conquered Jerusalem in 637 A.D. Fifty years later, Muhammad's followers deliberately began building their "second holiest" mosque on the Temple Mount replacing what they believed was the Jew's holiest site.
Opposite the Temple Mount, across the Kidron Valley on the Mount of Olives, where Jesus sweat blood, was betrayed, and arrested, lies one of the most violent and dangerous neighborhoods in Israel. Ninety percent of terrorist attacks in Israel originate from this Palestinian neighborhood called Silowan. Indeed, Silowan is world renowned for its initiation of violence. more >>
President Barack Obama is expected to ask Congress to approve of new war powers aimed at fighting terror group ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Members of the House and Senate will subsequently be faced with the first war vote in Congress in 13 years, since the last Iraq war.
The Associated Press reported that Obama is set to make the request later on Tuesday, and will present Congress with a blueprint for America's continued operations against ISIS, which has captured several cities and executed numerous westerners, including Americans, on camera.
The last time Congress faced a war vote, it authorized in 2002 former President George W. Bush to use force against the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein, who at the time was suspected of harboring weapons of mass destruction. more >>
As the world reacts with shock and horror at the increasingly savage deeds of the Islamic State (IS)—most recently the immolation of a captive—U.S. President Obama's response has been one of nonjudgmental relativism.
Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 5, Obama counseled Americans to get off their "high horse" and remember that Christians have been equally guilty of such atrocities:
Unless we get on our high horse and think this [beheadings, sex-slavery, crucifixion, roasting humans] is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. more >>
A bad deal on Iranian nukes would be so catastrophic to global security that presidential resistance to a related speech – by the leader of an allied democracy, who may be the greatest expert on the issue – should leave everyone speechless.
The Obama administration's outraged accusation that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu violated protocol by accepting House Speaker John Boehner's invitation to address Congress is preposterous: Bibi's speech before Congress in 2011 came about in the exact same way with no similar Obama outrage (predictably, given the upcoming 2012 election). And The New York Times advanced this "violated protocol" narrative all too willingly, only to correct itself as inconspicuously as possible, revealing yet again its own anti-Israel agenda. Ironically, Obama's main, if not only, motivation for visiting Israel in 2008 (and promising policies far from those he eventually adopted) was to gain the support of Jewish voters, back when he needed them to win the presidency.
Now Obama is trying everything in his power to unseat Bibi, including what he accuses Bibi of doing: meddling in another democracy's domestic politics. Whitehouse Spokesperson Josh Earnest's inadvertent slip about hoping that Bibi gets voted out in Israel's next elections was just the appetizer. The Obama administration will boycott Bibi on his next trip and is boosting the profile of his political opponents, as Obama-linked strategists actively support Israeli campaigns to defeat Bibi (after already slighting the democratically elected leader of America's top Mideast ally on countless other occasions). more >>
Former Baptist pastor and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has said that President Barack Obama has shown an "undying support" for Muslims, while his actions are against Christians and Jews. Huckabee's criticism stems from last week's National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama used the Crusades as an example of Christians doing "terrible acts" in the name of Christ.
"Everything he does is against what Christians stand for, and he's against the Jews in Israel. The one group of people that can know they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community. It doesn't matter whether it's the radical Muslim community or the more moderate Muslim community," Huckabee said on "Fox and Friends" on Monday.
Obama said in his speech on Thursday: "Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ." more >>
President Obama has hijacked Christianity in an attempt to defend Islam. At the National Prayer breakfast Thursday, he said, "There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith." And that there will always be people willing to "hijack religion for their own murderous ends." So we shouldn't "get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place—remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ."
Yes, people have done terrible deeds in the name of Christ, but they were against the teachings of Christ. Some of the Crusaders committed atrocities that couldn't be more contrary to the teachings of Christ. They were the ones who "hijacked" a religion, Christianity, by disobeying what Christ taught.
But contrary to the president's assertions, this is not the case with Islam. Islam is not being "hijacked"—it is being obeyed. The terrorists are following the teachings of the Qur'an and the example of Muhammad. more >>
