Obama outdoes himself in UN speech
By now we are well aware that President Obama goes out of his way to praise Islam, making false claims that Islam is a religion of peace (is anyone else completely sick of that expression?) and lauding purported Muslim contributions to civilization.
When speaking at the United Nations on Wednesday Obama took taqiyya to a whole new level when he praised Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah. Who, you may ask, is that? This is who, per a report in the Washington Free Beacon:
…a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology.
However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq. (snip)
…the notorious 2004 fatwa permitting armed resistance against U.S. military personnel in Iraq reportedly stated that “resisting occupation troops” is a “duty” for all Muslims, according to reports about the edict.
In other words, Obama praised a sheikh who supports terror, including a call – a duty! – for all Muslims to kill US soldiers in Iraq.
The report at the Washington Free Beacon continues:
This is not the first time that the Obama administration has extoled (sic) Bin Bayyah, who also has served as the vice president of a Muslim scholars group founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans,” according to Fox News and other reports.
The State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau (CT) was forced to issue multiple apologies earlier this year after the Washington Free Beacon reported on its promotion of Bin Bayyah on Twitter.
“This should not have been tweeted and has since been deleted,” the CT Bureau tweeted at the time after many expressed anger over the original endorsement of Bin Bayyah.
However, it appears that Obama and the White House are still supportive of Bin Bayyah…. (snip)
“Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies—Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: ‘We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace,’” Obama said, quoting the controversial cleric. (snip)
So Obama didn’t just praise the guy. He quoted him, as well. Ain’t that grand?
The article ends with a perspective offered by Patrick Poole, who is a fierce and tireless voice for truth about Islam and terrorism:
Patrick Poole, a reporter and terrorism analyst who has long tracked Bin Bayyah, expressed shock that the Obama administration would endorse the cleric on the world stage.
“It is simply amazing that just a few months ago the State Department had to publicly apologize for tweeting out it’s (sic) support for Bin Bayyah, only to have Barack Obama go before the leaders of the entire world and publicly endorse Bin Bayyah’s efforts,” Poole said.
“It seems that nothing can stop this administration’s determination to rehabilitate Bin Bayyah’s image, transforming him from the Islamic cleric who issued the fatwa to kill Americans in Iraq and calling for the death of Jews to the de facto White House Islamic mufti,” he said. (snip)
“This is a snapshot of why this administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East is a complete catastrophe,” he said. “The keystone of their policy has been that so-called ‘moderate Islamists’ were going to be the great counter to al Qaeda. But if you take less than 30 seconds to do a Google search on any of these ‘moderate Islamists,’ you immediately find they are just a degree or two from the most hardcore jihadis and have little to no difference when it comes to condoning violence.”
A White House official said that the president’s remarks speak for themselves and declined to add anything further.
Yes, I suppose that’s true. The president’s remarks absolutely speak for themselves. The remarks confirm that the man sitting in the oval office has an allegiance to Islam and Muslims around the world – an allegiance to the very ideology that is driving Muslims to wage war against the West, and indeed against all of civilization.
Six years is a long time to wreak havoc in the world. And Obama’s not through yet. At the rate he’s going, I would not be surprised to see him in full Islamic garb by the time he leaves the White House.
Political satire. Right?
