In fact, there only seems to be one religion that gets this preferential treatment. DOJ is not meeting with Jewish groups to discuss using discrimination laws to criminalize defamation of Judaism. Government prosecutors aren’t imprisoning filmmakers for unflattering portrayals of the Buddha. And Hillary Clinton didn’t travel overseas and promise to use the full might of the U.S. government to use “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” on critics of Christianity.

If Barack Obama and members of his administration want to grind the Islamic grievance machine on their own time and as private citizens, they are perfectly entitled to do so. But when he goes before the United Nations as president of the United States and declares that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” he has crossed a line expressly prohibited to him by the very Constitution he swore to uphold.

Where is the outrage from the Left or the ACLU? Where are members of Congress on this? For many Americans, our ancestors left their homelands to escape governments getting involved in sectarian feuds. The First Amendment’s Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses ensured that despite the natural temptations to do so, the U.S. government wouldn’t go down that road. But now that it is, it’s past time for Americans to take notice and take action.

Agreed. "Enemy of Islam" is an Islamic formulation that should never pass the lips of a US government official.

If they were agents of a Muslim power, what would the Soros Junta do differently?

Why is it that when so called "people" promote the baby raping hypocrite muslim religion everyone bows in humility and empathy for the poor darling victims of false "terrorist" accusations? Why is it when someone starts to promote protestant, or Christian principles, which this country was founded on, they are automatically labeled a terrorist by the mainstream megaliars?

Did DaOne place his right hand on a Koran, or a Bible? What was his Doctoral thesis in College?

Islam is a perfect fit for the New Age. Pure paganism.

Islam is and never has been a religion. It's a political movement that uses religion to hide behind. Murdering and killing is name of the game. One quote ,I received from a friend of mine, a former Muslim, now a Christian. "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslims". He also said, Never, Never trust any of them.

We need some debaters, orators - powerful spokesmen, if you will - to lead the conservatives/Republicans in fighting the Obama administration's white-washing of Islam.

If followers of Islam want to be taken seriously by the rest of the world they must come up with a new prophet of "reasonability." The Koran is somewhat like the Christian Bible's Old Testament, but without the ameliorating influence of its New Testament. Something has to be done about the killing and violence promoted by the Koran. There are some "ameliorating" Hadiths, but they need the clout of an acknowledged prophet to give them credence.

I welcome conflicting arguments to my opinion.

Sorry I forgot. How about Pammy Geller, Robert Spencer, Walid Shoblat(I know I misspelled it)Nonie Darwish. But the govt and the eurotrash, consider them as "hate speech"preachers? What do we do?
The OT, was from a time when the world was primitive, brutal and violent. The Christ brought the New Testament, and with it came a new covenant, it allowed us to seek salvation in a more "Christian" manner.

This has been made improbable/impossible, when any criticism of pislam can or will be considered islamophobia--racisim--a crime. The govt has gotten it's nuts in a knot by not even being able to name it's enemy. Any mention of 'that' religion, followed by 'those' people has been removed from any training literature.

You forgot to add that Obama himself stated in a UN speech that we cannot tolerate those "who insult The Prophet."

Remember, that was his response to the world after the Benghazi mess.

His very wording is disturbing. He could have made a more general and generic appeal to religious tolerance, but instead chose to sound like an Imam. This appears to be more than just craven pandering by this administration, but sounds like a genuine attempt to realign American foreign and domestic policy.

Am I being a paranoid crank? Maybe, but it sure isn't helpful when we get this kind of bizarre language from an Ameican administration, and even "Republicans" are going to Egypt to demand the release of Muslim Brotherhood fanatics that have enraged a majority of Egyptians.

There is a marked differrence between trying to be an even-handed peace-maker, and appearing to align oneself with an ideology that has been an implaccable enemy responsible for killing thousands of Americans. ANd now we are reading that the Egyptian MB may have been complicit in Benghazi.

What the Hell is going on here?

Obama seems to like speaking in biblical phrases, that are about as meaningful in today's English as the King James bible. In his UN speech of 9/25/2012 his words are so flowery it hides the violence implied in them. Just try analyzing "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," for what he is implying.

this psaki broad acts like she's dumber than a box of rocks. the terrorist who are killing other muslims are islamic terrorist themselves.
but then again this wasn't said out of stupidity. obama and his administration very carefully orchestrate every word they say and everything they do. it's a furtherance of obama's appeasement to muslims and the islamic cult which obama is the leader.

How ironic when Liberals so meticulously cover the backside of militant Islam.
If the jihadists ever prevailed, our Liberals would be the first infidels exterminated. The Cult of the Useful Idiot is among us.

It's no accident. They're getting us used to it, little by little. It is the direction they are taking America.
