Obama's Muslim Sympathies: 'Curiouser and Curiouser'
By not sending anyone from the White House to the Paris rallies against Islamic terrorism the other day, President Obama has made his Muslim sympathies abundantly clear. As I tweeted the other day: now we know which side he's rooting for. But don't just take it from me, take it from IBD's editorial on the subject:
Barack Obama skipped the greatest anti-terror rally ever, the only Western leader to do so. Unlike France's prime minister, he refused to condemn radical Islam, suggesting disinterest in defeating its spawn. The president and his top aides remain unusually deferential and accommodating to the Muslim community — despite the spike in threats from the Islamic State, al-Qaida and other Muslim terrorists...
Obama's latest Islamist appointment is hijab-wearing Fatima Noor, who will help usher in more Muslim immigrants as the special assistant for U.S. citizenship and Immigration Services at Homeland Security.
The IBD continues:
Over the past three years, as Europe deals with Muslim immigrant no-go zones and spiking terror attacks, Obama waved more than 300,000 foreign Muslim nationals into the U.S. — including more than 88,000 from Saudi Arabia alone. Law enforcement can barely handle the terror threats it has without adding unknown foreign Muslims to the matrix.
In his first speech, Obama went to Cairo, invited Muslim Brotherhood leaders to sit front and center, and apologized to the Muslim world for America's war on terror. Then in 2012, before the United Nations and the world, he declared "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet (Muhammad)."
Remarks such as these, along with his pro-Islamist policies, give a green light for jihadists to go ahead and kill in the name of Islam. Incredibly, our Muslim-sympathizing commander in chief is himself a big part of the terror problem. If America is attacked again, he will have a lot of explaining to do.
Only if the press asks him to explain. Which it won't.
