Obama’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday continues to send shockwaves through this country.
Obama’s statement has quickly become notorious: “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.” Not yesterday, President Obama. Centuries ago. Not yesterday.
People committed terrible deeds in the cause of Allah yesterday, and the day before and the day before – but Obama refuses to say that.
Contrary to his claims that Christians were slaughtering in the name of Christ, we see none of that. Nowhere do you see Christians beheading, setting alight or crucifying non-Christians while screaming, “Christ is greatest!” Obama had the unmitigated gall to bring up the Spanish Inquisition and what was done at the end of that 800-year-old war, as well as the Crusades (which Obama mentioned as well), which was against the Muslim hordes close to 1,000 years ago. Had it not been for Charles Martel beating back the Muslim armies, Europe would look like the hellhole that much of the Middle East looks like today.
Obama insists that “the future does not belong to those that slander the prophet of Islam,” but insults Jesus Christ? He’s all in.
Obama freely brought up Christianity’s ancient history, but did not mention Islam’s 1,400-year bloody history of jihadi war, land appropriations, cultural annihilations, and enslavements. He failed to mention the 1,400 jihad against the Jews raging still today against Israel and Jews across the world. And, of course, he did not discuss the religion’s bloody jihad now. On the contrary, he falsely claimed that Islam was being “hijacked.”
Hijacked, how? Jihadists are citing the Quran, chapter and verse. They are using Muhammad as their “perfect example.” Obama never said Christianity had been hijacked a thousand years ago. But he did make the outrageous claim that Jim Crow and slavery were sanctioned in the name of Christ.
Jim Crow was not in the name of Christ. Slavery was not in the name of Christ. These are despicable statements from the leader of the free world. But jihad is in the cause of Allah, and this he will not say.
Jesus did not behead, kill, rape, or steal from conquered people, calling the theft righteous booty. Jesus did not marry a six-year-old. Muhammad did. And he slaughtered untold numbers, with his mujahadeen raping and pillaging every bloody step of the way.
Those of us who saw this coming back in 2008 and 2009 were excoriated, ridiculed and marginalized for speaking the truth about Obama’s past. In 2007, I wrote a commentary for Israel National News titled, “Obama, the Muslim Thing, And Why It Matters.” Before Obama’s election, anyone who used his middle name, Hussein, was labeled a racist-anti-Muslim-Islamophobic-bigot. And yet the first call he made to a foreign “leader” after he was inaugurated was to terror leader Mahmoud Abbas. The first interview he gave was with al Arabiya television. His first world tour was an apology tour to the Muslim world, culminating in a speech from the leading Islamic university in Cairo, Al Azhar. He invited the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group to his speech in Cairo, despite the fact that it had been banned for decades. Then President Mubarak and his cabinet, America’s 30-year ally in that troubled region, could not attend Obama’s speech because of the terror presence.
It’s why I wrote my 2010 book, “The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.”
And now, five years later, with the global jihad roiling the world thanks to Obama’s support and sanction, he deigns to tell us what our religion is.
President Dawah. The more jihad rages, the more Obama proselytizes for Islam. Muslim countries like Jordan are taking a much harder line than the U.S. It’s outrageous.
The question isn’t whether Obama is or isn’t a Muslim. The question is, if he were a Muslim, what would he be doing differently? In a word: nothing.
