Obama’s Proxy War on Mideast Christians

Even if Obama really were Muslim, what more could he possibly do to empower Islam?

With the recent decision to arm the opposition fighting Syrian President Assad, the United States has effectively declared a proxy war on Syria’s indigenous Christians — a proxy war that was earlier waged on Christians in other Mideast nations, resulting in the abuse, death, and/or mass exodus of Christians.

Ironically (if not absurdly) this proxy war on Christians is being presented to the American people as a war to safeguard the “human rights” and “freedoms” of the Syrian people.  Left unsaid by the Obama administration is the egregiously inhuman behavior these jihadis visit upon moderate Syrians in general and Christians in particular, from bombed churches to kidnapped (and often beheaded) Christians.  Days ago they massacred an entire Christian village.

Nor can one argue that the Obama administration is unaware that Christian persecution is an ironclad aspect of empowering jihadis.  Both past precedents and current events repeatedly demonstrate this.

In Libya, the administration armed/supported the “freedom fighters” fighting Gaddafi, even though it was common knowledge that many of them were connected to al-Qaeda.  Again, the rationale was “our responsibilities to our fellow human beings,” as Obama declared in April 2011, and how not assisting them “would have been a betrayal of who we are.”

Soon after their empowerment, some of our U.S.-supported “fellow human beings” decided to rub America’s face in it by attacking the U.S. consulate — on the anniversary of September 11, no less — resulting in the murders and possible rape of American diplomats, even as Obama tried to attribute the attack to American freedom of speech (a la a YouTube flick).

Lesser known, however, is that Libya’s small Christian minority is being targeted.  Among other things, the very few churches there are under attack; nuns that have been serving the sick and needy since 1921 have been harassed and forced to flee; foreign Christians possessing Bibles have been arrested and tortured (one recently died from his torture).

In Egypt, Obama and Hillary joined the bandwagon to eject Hosni Mubarak, America’s most stable and secular ally for thirty years. Then the administration cozied up to the Muslim Brotherhood — an Islamist organization that until recently was banned in Egypt and no U.S. president would have been involved with.   Among other “achievements,” the Brotherhood produced Sayyid Qutb, who is idolized by al-Qaeda as the chief theoretician of modern jihad.

"If Obama were a Muslim, what would he he do differently?" A question being asked by myself and others for a while. The answer: nothing.

Well, he could scream 'Allahu Akbar!' before putting a match to the Constitution.
Obama belongs behind bars, along with his complicit media, his crooked attorney general, and his criminal lackeys at the IRS. And we more people should be demanding that.

Although I won't be surprised if Obama indeed was Muslim, I'm doubtful that he is: During the Benghazi hearings, it was indicated that the Libyan government warned Obama that a terrorist attack was going to happen under radical Islam, yet despite that, Obama still claimed that they reacted angrily to a youtube video that, up until his and Clinton's mentioning it, wasn't even given enough exposure anywhere, which consequentially made it seem as though all Muslims were indeed barbaric and gave them a bad name. That inherently contradicts his statement that he'll "stand with the Muslims" regardless of political winds. Think about it, if he was going to do that, he would elevate them, not downplay them as barbaric.

Also, his birth father, Barack Obama Sr., was the son of a Muslim, yet it was made very clear from Obama Sr.'s adopting Marxism that he left the Muslim faith (Marxism kills anyone who adheres to a religion, meaning Muslims would have been targeted. He can't be both a Marxist and a Muslim just as a Marxist cannot be a religious Jew or a Marxist cannot be a Christian at the same time). Since he wasn't tailed by the Muslims for leaving the faith and executed gangland style for it, I'm doubtful that's actually a well-practiced part of that faith. The fact that Obama Sr. lived long enough to do the stuff he did and pushed for Marxism despite obviously having left the Muslim faith (remember, Obama Sr.'s father, and Obama Jr.'s grandpa was a Muslim, and Marxism clearly states that no religion is allowed, comparing it to opium) shows that its not taken seriously. Its also made very clear that he intended to adopt Obama Sr.'s dream, not his Muslim stepfather's dream in that book, and that he intended to hang out with communists and student radicals. Then again, Dreams of My Father is strongly suggested to have been ghost-authored by Bill Ayers.

Soon all of us will have to recognize that what Obama said in his writings is exactly true. 'When the going gets tough, He will side with the Muslims..' And he has sided with the Muslim at every occasion and he will continue to do so. For this is who Obama really is.
Wake up America, we have a stealth terrorist on board and he is hell bent on destroying this Nation.....
It is time for impeachment of the President..... Followed by a trial for treason against the Constitution and summary execution....
Or should we bypass all of the formal cr#p and go straight to a Revolution, for that is where we are headed.

The leader must defended at all times, and at any cost.

This is the m.o. of a wolfpack, and I see canis lupis has been in the Oval Office since January, 2009.

Americans who do NOT believe Dear Leader is a mooslim (waging war on Christians both here and throughout the entire world!) are as stupid as chickens believing Colonel Sanders is a vegan.

Remember BENGHAZI!

So the Russians are backing Assad in Syria as probably the best of two evils. It appears that the Russians are putting their traditional loyalty to other Orthodox Christians forward and supporting the side least hostile to the local Orthodox Christians.

This reminds me of the Crimean War when the Russians moved to protect Orthodox Christians in the Holy Land at the expenseof the Turks. Meanwhile the Western powers (Britain and France) basically supported the genocide of Orthodox Christians by the Turks so the Russians would not get to powerful.

But, Obama has a wonderful opportunity to redeem himself! As Obama is in South Africa, all he has to do is lay hands on Nelson Madella and HEAL him.
That would revive Obama's reputation as savior in the eyes of all Christians help reverse the ever more popular belief that Obama is a dumb, lazy, shiftless and mendacious buffoon.

Anybody who thinks Obama is dumb isn't paying attention.

He's not stupid. He's evil.

There is a vast difference.

Muslim persecution of Christians is a litmus test of how "devout" an Islamic society has become. There, I fixed it for you Mr. Ibrahim.

Following Muhammad is not radical Sir. Being an Muslim Apostate would be radical. I bet you already knew that, but you might be tying to be like your learned colleges at the Super-duper level called Intellectual.

More "intelligent diplomacy".

In the Orwellian World of Obama words often mean the exact opposite of their true meaning.
