More of Obama’s ‘Muslims First’ Policy (Guest Post)

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gestures as he speaks to workers in Tehran

On page 261 of the paperback edition of Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama’s (ghost written) book The Audacity of Hope, he wrote “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

In what must be an effort in his mind to keep the political winds from shifting, in an NPR interview Obama said:

They [Iran] have a path to break through that isolation and they should seize it. Because if they do, there’s incredible talent and resources and sophistication inside of – inside of Iran, and it would be a very successful regional power that was also abiding by international norms and international rules, and that would be good for everybody. That would be good for the United States, that would be good for the region, and most of all, it would be good for the Iranian people.

During that SAME interview Obama said:

Tehran [Iran] is a large, sophisticated country that has a track record of state-sponsored terrorism, that we know was attempting to develop a nuclear weapon – or at least the component parts that would be required to develop a nuclear weapon – that has engaged in disruptions to our allies, whose rhetoric is not only explicitly anti-American but also has been incendiary when it comes to its attitude towards the state of Israel.

Iran has long made its intentions clear vis-a-vis Israel and the Mid-East. “Iran has explicitly stated many times that it wants to destroy Israel,” said Tehran University professor Sadegh Zibakalam. And regarding the Mid-East, former senator Joseph Lieberman said:

… the uneasiness of our Middle Eastern allies is also rooted in the recognition that the danger posed by the Iranian regime is about more than its illicit nuclear activities. Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is the most alarming manifestation of a much more profound strategic problem: a perceived long-standing hegemonic ambition by Iran’s rulers to dominate the Middle East.

Obama views the U.S. relationship with Iran as one of détente, and that implies that the U.S. sees Iran as a potential ally in Syria and Iraq, when Iran is part of the problem. Iran’s support for Assad has prolonged Syria’s civil war, and its support for sectarian militias in Iraq has contributed to the alienation of Sunnis in Iraq.

And someone in Obama’s administration called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “chickensh*t.” As Jeffery Goldberg wrote, “The relationship between these two administrations – dual guarantors of the putatively ‘unbreakable’ bond between the U.S. and Israel – is now the worst it’s ever been, and it stands to get significantly worse after the November midterm elections.” BTW, the Obama administration spent two days disavowing the remark about Netanyahu.

Further, Obama wrote a letter to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The letter lays out a shared interest in fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), and concludes with respect for Iran. And Iran refers to the U.S. as “The Great Satan.” Obama, you can really pick’em.

Yes, Obama, it would be good for Iran, the region, and the US if Iran could “break through that isolation.” But as Michael Singh, managing director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, wrote, “The Obama administration needs … a Middle East strategy that effectively confronts the full range of threats to U.S. interests and rallies the support of allies.”

In Obama’s own words about Iran, a Muslim country: state-sponsored terrorism, nuclear weapons, disrupt allies, anti-American rhetoric, incendiary comments about Israel. Yet another illustration of Obama’s “stand with the Muslims.”

Obama, the political winds have shifted (a long time ago). Iran shifted it. And try as you may (with much help from the liberal MSM) your comments cannot change reality.

    But he is King.
    So obviously his word is law.
    He has a pen, and he has a phone.
    So get over it. Muslims first.
    That is our policy.
    Remember: he was elected twice.
    Disputing him is heresy, and will result in jail time, audits, and other unpleasant things. So don’t go there.

    Yes he was elected twice and the first since Ike to get more than 50% both times
    And yes all Good American Christians who read the Bible know Romans13 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.

    Yeah, Obama’s “Muslims Also” policy is just nightmarish! How DARE he not support the Christians exclusively?? This is a Christian nation, based on Christian principles! The separation of church and state was invented by godless liberals! It’s time to declare a federal religion and end this nonsense once and for all.

    One of Iran’s Republican Guard Generals has ordered Obama to convert to Islam “for the sake of peace.”
    The report that has been carried by Al-Arabiya in Arabic has been translated in other outlets.

    “There are only two things that would end enmity between us and the US. Either the US president and EU leaders should convert to Islam and imitate the Supreme Leader, or Iran should abandon Islam and the Islamic revolution.”

    EU or US leaders would not turn Muslim, he observed, adding “If they are not going to turn Muslim, we are not going to abandon Islam or the revolution either. But I do not know why some people believe that some day we will make peace with the US and start relations with them.

    So, Obama is deluded here, too.

    @john: -and if I were a betting woman, he won based on massive voter fraud. Perhaps not the first time because white people needed to cleanse their souls from things that happened many years ago that had nothing to do with them, and by people who would vote for the devil if they were the same color.

    @john:

    Besides demonstrating your insanity, you are also wrong.

    See Reagan’s election victories in 1980 and 1984.

    I used to shake my head over the claims that Obama is a muslim. His performance in office is far more in line with taqqiyah and pro-islamic goals than pro-American or pro-Christian philosophy.

    Anyone who has actually read the koran and the haddith, then researched the history of the spread of islam and the destruction it always brings can easily see it for the satanic death cult that it is. I don’t think even Orwell could have envisioned the magnitude of leftist doublethink regarding islam.

    Yet leftists consider Christians the only evil barbarians….
