Shock: U.S. Army trains Palestinians in Jordan planning on killing Israelis?!

(*And did you know your tax dollars fund terrorism?*)

by Allan Erickson

After 1300 years of Muslim aggression throughout much of Africa, Asia, Europe and now the Western Hemisphere, we know at least four facts certain: authoritative Islam has always preached world domination, Islam has always acted to achieve world domination, there is no room for civilized diplomacy, and any perceived weakness in the infidel is exploited to the extreme.

We also know from the historical record that Muslims only sue for peace when they are losing and need breathing room to regroup and reorganize for the next assault.  When they speak of pervasive, sustainable peace, they mean the ‘peace’ that will come when Islam rules the world: hence, Islam is a religion of  ‘peace.’

The only force on earth that has ever stopped Muslim invasions: committed Christian armies, strong in faith, and unapologetic in the defense of their homes.

Flying in the face of facts certain, Mr. Obama now journeys to Cairo to tell the world that:  America is no longer a Christian nation, we will apologize left and right and take responsibility for everything, Islam is a religion of peace, we should find ways to co-exist peacefully, we must engage diplomacy, America is at fault and should repent, America will get on her knees and humiliate herself if necessary to convince the Muslim world of her good intentions.

Muslim warriors, at one time some of the best in the world, will look upon Mr. Obama with disgust.  They despise weakness.  Cowardice is condemned.   Self-deprecating infidels are seen as ripe for attack.

Hence, for all his good intentions, Mr. Obama will get the opposite of what he seeks: he will sow pleasant platitudes seeking peace, and he will reap vicious denunciations, increased terrorist activity, and war.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING

Obama sows a Mideast whirlwind

by Frank J. Gaffney, President, Center for Security Policy, columnist for the Washington Times

EXCERPT

If past is prelude, the President of the United States will: apologize yet again for purported offenses against Muslims by his country; promise to be respectful of Islam, including those who adhere to its authoritative, if virulent, theo-political-legal program known as Shariah; and enunciate diplomatic priorities and initiatives designed to reach out to America’s enemies in the region, while putting excruciating pressure on its most reliable ally there, Israel.

This pressure has become more palpable by the day.  It has taken various forms, including: U.S. stances adopted at the United Nations that will serve to isolate Israel; blank political and even financial checks for Palestinian thugs like Mahmoud Abbas; diminishing U.S.-Israeli cooperation on intelligence and military matters; and the withholding from Israel of helicopters (and perhaps other weaponry) being provided to Arab states.

Perhaps the most chilling example of this coercive pressure so far, however, was originally reported in the Israeli paper Yediot Aharonot and given international prominence by my esteemed colleague and Jerusalem Post columnist, Caroline Glick.  According to these accounts, in a recent lecture in Washington, U.S. Army Lieutenant General Keith Dayton, the American officer charged with training Palestinian military forces in Jordan, made a shocking declaration.

In Ms. Glick’s words, “[Gen. Dayton] indicated that if Israel does not surrender Judea and Samaria within two years, the Palestinian forces he and his fellow American officers are now training at a cost of more than $300 million could begin killing Israelis.”  She went on to note that neither the general nor the Obama administration seemed to find this prospect grounds for rethinking the wisdom of such a training-and-arming program.  In fact, her column observed that Defense Secretary Robert Gates “just extended Dayton’s tour of duty for an additional two years and gave him the added responsibility of serving as Obama’s Middle East mediator George Mitchell’s deputy.”

Taken together with the U.S. administration’s refusal to come to grips with what truly is the most serious threat to peace in the Middle East – Iran’s rising power and growing aggressiveness, reflecting in part its incipient nuclear weapons capabilities – the stage is being inexorably set for the next, and perhaps most devastating, regional conflict.

How Obama’s America Might Threaten Israel

by Norman Podhoretz, Editor-at-large, Commentary magazine

EXCERPT

No wonder, then, that the Obama administration is already reverting to the old pre-Bush assumptions that have repeatedly been discredited in practice: that Israeli “intransigence” is the main obstacle to ending the conflict with the Palestinians; that “restarting” the “peace process” therefore requires putting the onus back on Israel; and that this in turn necessitates forcing Israel back to the 1967 borders. In other words, Jerusalem must be redivided and the major centers of Jewish population in the West Bank that Bush had promised would remain part of Israel must also be evacuated and the West Bank as a whole be made Judenrein.

Indeed, during Hillary Clinton’s first trip as Secretary of State to Israel, she went evenhandedly out of her way to castigate the Israelis over the issue of Arab housing in Jerusalem while making a great show of the $900 million the U.S. has pledged to Gaza.

The upshot is that, barring military action by Israel (or a miracle), Iran will get the bomb, and sooner rather than later. What then? For some time now, many pundits with the ear of the Obama administration have finally recognized that neither carrots nor sticks nor any combination of the two can work. But instead of going on to support military action, they have fallen back on the position that we can “live with” a nuclear Iran.In line with the doctrine of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD), they soothingly tell us, the mullahs can be deterred by the fear of retaliation much as the far more heavily armed Soviets and Chinese were deterred during the cold war. They also say that Ahmadinejad—who in his fanaticism admittedly sounds as though he can hardly wait to use nuclear weapons against Israel—neither runs the regime nor speaks for it.

What they forget to mention, however, is that Ahmadinejad could never have issued his threats without permission from the Ayatollah Khamenei, who does run the regime, and who has himself described Israel as a “cancerous tumor” that must and will be excised. Besides, even Ahmadinejad’s predecessor as president and the current Speaker of the Assembly of Experts, the Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, known far and wide as a “moderate,” has declared that his country would not be deterred by the fear of retaliation:

If the day comes when the world of Islam is duly equipped with the arms Israel has in its possession . . . application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in Israel, but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world.

Obama Busy Appeasing Jihadists

by Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch.org

“To the Muslim world,” said Barack Obama in his Inaugural Address, “we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

After 100 days, how’s that going?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad summed it up best, responding contemptuously to Obama’s offer to sit down to talk without preconditions and taunting Obama for his impotence: “We say to you that you yourselves know that you are today in a position of weakness. Your hands are empty, and you can no longer promote your affairs from a position of strength.”  

Ahmadinejad is also turning Obama’s campaign promise against him. When Obama indicated that he wouldn’t impose preconditions on negotiations with Iran, the Iranian saw an opening. Now, he’s apparently demanding preconditions for the talks by pressuring Obama for concessions on the Israel-Palestinian conflict.  

Iran’s Thug-In-Chief spoke like an aggressor who has spotted an appeaser, and is determined to wring from him as many concessions as possible.

How has it come to this so quickly? Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano seem to have made it a top priority of their administration’s opening act to weaken our position with the Islamic jihadists:

•    They quietly dropped the term “war on terror.” Napolitano even went so far as to say that she preferred to refer not to acts of “terrorism” but to “man-caused disasters” (NOW had no recorded comment about her sexist language). Meanwhile, a DHS report on “right-wing extremists” had no trouble referring to veterans and conservatives of all kinds as potential “terrorists.” This suggested a disquieting will to silence and demonize the political opposition, all the while regarding the real terror threat with extraordinary myopia.  
•    Obama named Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks as an advisor to the undersecretary of Defense for policy. Brooks is venomously anti-Israel and once wrote that al Qaeda was “little more than an obscure group of extremist thugs,” and that the Bush Administration had only imagined that it was a “vast global threat.”  
•    He has tapped Harold Koh to become the legal adviser for the State Department. Koh has said that he had no objection to Sharia’s being applied to “an appropriate case” in the United States.
•    In a startling breach of protocol, Obama bowed deeply to the King of Saudi Arabia, implying an obeisance that isn’t going to free us from our dependence upon the oil sheikhs any time soon.  
•    While on a trip to Europe, he refused to visit the American Cemetery at Normandy, but made a point of visiting a mosque in Istanbul. He expressed, in an address to the Turkish Parliament, his “deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world—including in my own country.” It’s unclear how he thinks Islam has shaped the U.S., other than to lead to innovations in airport security. His statement did nothing but embolden the jihadists who have dedicated their efforts to bringing Islamic law to the West.
•    Obama said also that “the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam” — indicating that he had no intention of addressing the ideological challenge that Islamic jihadists present to the West, or of acknowledging the fact that although the U.S. is not at war with Islam, many Muslims consider Islam to be at war with the U.S.  
•    Obama invited to the White House the head of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a 56-nation body that has declared its intention to compel the United Nations to criminalize all criticism of Islam.  
•    He has declared his determination to open negotiations with “moderate elements” of the Taliban, despite the fact that no such people have ever been found.  
•    He has declared his determination to close Guantanamo, despite the fact that over 60 former Gitmo detainees have returned to the jihad.

All this and more in just 100 days.  

The Obama Administration apparently doesn’t know the difference between appeasement and diplomacy. A diplomat will sell you and your nation for a price. An appeaser will give it away without getting anything in return.

Snubbing Israel Is Obama’s Real Bow to Saudis by Dick Morris

Obama is, indeed, really bowing to the Saudis as he visits the Middle East this week.

First, he is bypassing Israel. Visiting the Middle East and not going to Israel would be like touring North America and omitting a stop in the United States. It makes sense only if you interpret it as a deliberate slap in the face of Jerusalem and a statement to the Arab world that America’s pro-Israeli policy is changing.

But as he goes to Saudi Arabia, the State Department, headed by Hillary Clinton, has announced that it has accepted the ground rules for media coverage of the Obama visit to the royal family and its domain. Reporters will be allowed to cover only the actual meetings between the Saudis and Obama and will not be permitted to visit the rest of the country or report on anything else they see during the trip.

Reporters who violate these terms are subject to arrest and imprisonment by the Saudi government!!!

Hillary and Obama accepted these terms.

________

The Obama administration has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to protect Saudi Arabia and four of its princes from being held accountable for their alleged role in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States that killed almost 3,000 Americans, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Arab Reformers Fear Obama Will Abandon Democracy 

There are widespread expectations in Cairo that Obama will play down calls for democratic reform. Human rights activists think he is prepared to tolerate a certain amount of repression from Arab allies willing to help him with more complex regional issues.
