Obama Administration Calls for the ‘Human Rights’ of Jihadi Murderers

It’s well known that whenever jihadis attack and slaughter innocent people — especially Christians — the Obama administration tries to ignore or whitewash. Lesser known, however, is that whenever foriegn governments try to subdue the jihadis, the Obama administration objects and calls for the “human rights” of the terrorists.

According to Reuters,

Nigerian warplanes struck militant camps in the northeast on Friday [5/17] in a major push against an Islamist insurgency, drawing a sharp warning from the United States to respect human rights and not harm civilians. Troops used jets and helicopters to bombard targets in their biggest offensive since the Boko Haram group launched a revolt almost four years ago to establish a breakaway Islamic state and one military source said at least 30 militants had been killed.  But three days after President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the northeast, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a strongly worded statement saying: “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations, which, in turn, only escalate the violence and fuel extremism.

Thus here is Kerry grandstanding about the “human rights” of Boko Haram, a jihadi group whose name means “Western Education is a Sin” — that is, a group whose very name embodies hostility for Western civilization. (Of course, it’s not surprising that the Obama administration overlooks Boko Haram’s animus for the West, considering that it was just revealed that “it is Obama administration policy to consider specifically Islamic criticism of the American system of government legitimate.”)

But what about the “human rights” of the victims of jihadi terror? In 2011, when Egypt’s Christians protested the constant attacks on their churches and the Egyptian military responded by massacring them at Maspero, including by running them over with armored vehicles, the White House said nothing about “human rights,” declaring instead that “now is a time for restraint on all sides” — as if Egypt’s beleaguered and unarmed Christian minority needed to “restrain” itself against the nation’s military.

And that was the last time "The West" fought a war to win the war. Since then we have been fighting to win hearts and minds and bring democracy to people that don't want it.

Fight to win, or surrender and die.

I just can't understand why our government can't figure out what "kill the unbelievers wherever you find them" in the koran means. Take a hint here Barak, it means kill people that don't believe in islam. It's like the British murder yesterday, these animals weren't "fueled by Radical Islam" as I heard reported. They are fueled by islam. Read the koran and you will understand that it has nothing to do with our behavior in the world, it is all about the koran.

Is it any wonder? Obama may claim he's a Christian, but he grew up steeped in the muslim religion/culture background,

And John Brenann is a converted muslim,

And Hillary's "body person" Huma Abedin's mother heads the women's equivalent to the Muslim Brotherhood,

And Benghazi was "Obama" using CIA to funnel Saudi and Qatar aid to Muslim Brotherhood,

And NASA's mission is Muslim outreach,

And Nidal Hassan still got paid a 278K bounty for murdering 13 U.S. military infidels,

And "Arab Spring" is ringing Israel with Islamist states,

.......... (Do I need to go on?)

Be nice to a Muslim and just get along and they'll CUT YOUR HEAD OFF.
Appeasement has never worked and never will.

“it is . . . . administration policy to consider specifically Islamic criticism of the American system of government legitimate.”?

As a complete clause or sentence, does that above constitute grammatical logic?

John 'Reportin' fer Duty' Kerry. The guy who threw some poor wounded vet's medals over the fence in a Jane-Fonda rally back in the late-60s, but kept his own safe & sound, in case he wanted to run for something.

The man is a disgrace. Of course he would join Barry in bowing low to Jihadi forces.

Sadly this behavior has been allowed to fester for far too long across the world. The only thing that will stop it at this point is responding with unbridled brutality. Muslims kill 1, 10 or theirs die. Muslins kill 10, 1000 of theirs die. Coincide that with the one-by-one total destruction of their so called holy sites. I cannot imagine such horror but I also cannot imagine this culturally inbred inhumanity ending with nothing less.

I thought the fury of the white woman in England who confronted the terrorist signaled a change in attitude toward the Islamists but I guess I was wrong, I cannot understand why Americans are so reluctant to speak up...so what if you are called a bigot or racist. If enough people speak out, something may change. It has to start somewhere and, like compound interest, it will grow.

And we are getting exactly what we deserve, our idiots voted twice for this closet Muslim clown and this is no time to start crying. This is the time to start planning for how we are going to survive this administration. The fat is in the fire and Islam is approaching the door.... Obama and his DHS with his MB backers are well in hand and we had better get ready....

Remember when Obama said he wanted a "well-funded" civilian force as strong as any military?

Well what ELSE did you think he was talking about? Look at Dearborn/Detroit. Look at Mufreesboro. Look at Minneapolis. These are Obama's vaunted Civilians. Jihadis just ready and waiting for the call to Cull the Herd.
