Iran's Cynical Cooperation
Like Cassandra who spurned the advances of Apollo and was forever destined to be ignored, those Americans who refuse to bow to the dictates of Obama are being sidelined as they valiantly attempt to stop the diabolical desire to strengthen the number one terrorist nation of the world.
When Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the Iranian President, Joshua Teitelbaum pointed out that Iranian policy was to "order that this Jerusalem-occupying regime [Israel] must be erased from the page of time." Additionally, it was asserted that "[s]oon this stain of disgrace will be cleaned from the garment of the world of Islam, and this is attainable." Moreover, "[t]he region and the world are prepared for great changes and for being cleansed of Satanic enemies."
Under Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the destruction of Israel and America are continually echoed at military parades, on billboards, and at demonstrations. Thus, ". . . the cancerous tumor called Israel must be uprooted from the region." Consequently, the Iranian leadership of jihadist fascists have declared that they "will not be satisfied with anything less than the complete obliteration of the Zionist regime from the political map of the world." And finally, "'Death to America'" and 'Death to Israel' are not only words written on paper but rather a symbolic approach that reflects the desire of all the Muslim nations."
Veterans against the Deal reject Obama's insinuations of warmongering by opponents of the Iranian agreement. Gary Bauer asserts that senators supporting the deal "are now hostages held by the Ayatollah Khamenei," and Lauri Regan of EMET likens the agreement to the appeasement of Neville Chamberlain. Israeli Brig-Gen Yossi Kuperwasser notes that the deal "does nothing to block Iran from achieving regional hegemony."
Notwithstanding, far too many Americans are in complete denial concerning the Iranian assertions of extermination for Israel and America. They continue to hold on to empty promises promulgated by the pathological liar -- or should I say taqiyya-driven -- Obama and the jihadist-obsessed Iranian regime.
Lest this writer be accused of hyperbole, the incitement to genocide continues with the September 9, 2015 article in the New York Times that Khamenei predicted that "Israel would not exist in 25 years, and ruled out any new negotiations with the 'Satan,' the United States, beyond the recently completed nuclear accord." In fact, on "September 23, 2015, to mark the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei published an article on his website Farsi.Khamenei.ir entitled 'The Idols Will Be Shattered,' accompanied by an image of a shattered Statue of Liberty."
Through the mirror darkly the intentions of this regime continue to be crystal-clear and yet Obama leads the charge giving Iran the green light to aid and abet their demonic, destructive goals.
Obama's malevolence is further illustrated by his indifference to the genuine plight of Christian refugees as he is deporting them back to Iraq and charging them with immigration fraud. It echoes the torment of Jews on the cruise ship St. Louis when in 1940 they were refused entry to a safe harbor and returned to Europe where they were threatened by the Nazis. It also shows the mendacity of a man who has allowed illegal aliens across our porous southern border without properly vetting them in order to shore up the Democratic Party base.
Raymond Ibrahim wonders why "Christian minorities, who are the most to suffer from the chaos engulfing the Middle East, [are] the least wanted in the United States?"
The answer is that the Obama administration defines refugees as people 'persecuted by their government.' In other words, the only 'real' refugees are those made so due to the actions of Syrian President Bashar Assad. As for those who are being raped, slaughtered, and enslaved based on their religious identity by so-called 'rebel' forces fighting Assad -- including the Islamic State -- their status as refugees is evidently considered dubious at best.
So Obama refuses to help Christian refugees who are fleeing a hostile Muslim world while simultaneously welcoming many of these same jihadist Muslims into America!
With less than 481 days till the end of Obama's regime, it is clear that the impending catastrophe of (a) an explosion of jihadist Muslim immigrants, and (b) an ever-expanding Iranian hegemony will be left to the next president. What will that individual do? David Rubin, author of The Islamic Tsunami, has stated that "Obama is not the main issue; the Islamic challenge to the world will not end once he is out of office." Obama is "just a distressing symptom of a much deeper, contagious illness... that of the secular left-Islamic alliance" (242).
Ben Carson seems to understand the mindset of people who want sharia law to replace the Constitution when he stated that he did "not believe sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country." For example, Americans need to be informed that on September 19th in Jakarta, "34 people were caned in public" for violating sharia law. This is the face of sharia wherever it is practiced since Islamic sharia law is incompatible with freedom of thought, expression, conscience, and religion.
Carson has familiarized himself with the practice of taqiyya in which "a Muslim can mislead nonbelievers about the nature of the faith" thus allowing lying to achieve the ultimate goals of an Islamic caliphate. And, as to be expected, Carson has been targeted by CAIR, an "unindicted co-conspirator" in funding terror.
It is very troubling that in 2014 at least six leading American Islamist organizations, including CAIR, donated almost $700,000 to federal U.S. candidates. Shariah-compliant banking and legal intrusions have already made inroads in this country. Money-jihad or financial jihad helps to finance politicians who, once in place, would undermine America's and Israel's security. To be sure, "Saudi Arabia . . . has a long history of trying to buy elections around the world, not only supporting Wahhabi causes and groups, but 'secular' and mainstream entities such as universities and philanthropies in order to curry broad institutional favor from the West." The burgeoning anti-Jewish atmosphere on U.S. universities is a testament to the success of this influence.
If America will not acknowledge the enemy's philosophical moorings, and its sources of financial support, then we cannot find our way in dealing with this existential threat. Americans need to lift their blinders and stop pandering to political correctness. Until America has leadership that perceives the Nazi roots of political Islam and is willing to explain that it is a philosophy inherently antithetical to American values, we will continue to be duped by an implacable foe.
