Why Did Obama Support the Arab Spring?

“I WILL STAND WITH THE MUSLIMS”

by Sharon Rondeau

In Obama’s second book, “The Audacity of Hope,” he wrote that he would “stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” What does that mean for the U.S. at this time?

(Sep. 26, 2012) — In June 2009, Obama had given a significant speech from Cairo, Egypt to the world’s Muslims entitled “A New Beginning.”  Obama had predicted at the beginning of his 2008 campaign that after his inauguration, “the Muslim world will look at the U.S. differently.”

In his book The Audacity of Hope, Obama made the statement that ““I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

In February 2011, Obama pressured then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to resign amid the “Arab Spring” protests which allegedly called for “democracy.”  Obama then supported the Libyan rebels in overthrowing Libyan dictator Muommar Gaddafi without consulting Congress.  Gaddafi had called Obama “a friend” and “my son”  and was murdered by the rebels.

Obama mentioned his “Muslim faith” during the 2008 campaign to a reporter but insists that he is a Christian. His former pastor of 20 years has said that Obama was “steeped in Islam” when arriving at the Trinity United Church of Christ in the 1990s.  Obama claims that Muslims “have suffered the most from “extremism.”  Obama said he “has known Islam on three continents” and refers to the Muslim holy book as “the Holy Koran.”

On September 11, 2012, the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya was attacked in what Libyan officials described as premeditated, contrary to the statements initially made by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Obama himself, all of whom had claimed that a homemade video depicting Islam in a negative light was the catalyst.  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, two contract workers and a second diplomat were murdered, and the body of the ambassador was dragged through the streets in the aftermath of his murder and possible torture.  Libyan officials stated that they warned the U.S. three days prior to the attacks, but Stevens and the others were left unprotected.

The White House later sent mixed messages about the cause of the attacks, and the day after the murders were made public, Obama returned to campaigning, saying that it had been “a tough day.”

Unrest and instability have continued in Libya since the Americans were killed.

One year ago, Rep. Michele Bachmann had stated that Obama’s approach to the Middle East had damaged the U.S. by portraying it as weak.  Former presidential candidate John McCain had supported the Arab Spring uprisings, calling them “inspiring” and predicting that they would lead to “freedom and democracy.”  But what  kind of “change” has the Arab Spring brought about in the Middle East?  Who was behind it?

Ties have been illustrated between the Obama regime and The Muslim Brotherhood, and this past July, “an international plot” to overthrow Arab states with Western ties by Islamist organizations” was reported by a top security official in Dubai.  A written plan described as a “roadmap” to conquering Western civilizations was found in Switzerland in 2001 and attributed to The Muslim Brotherhood.  A documentary by Glenn Beck claims that the U.S. government is withholding the information from the American people.

Obama has met with members of The Muslim Brotherhood at the White House, and Muslims hold high-level positions within the Department of Homeland Security.  Some termed such employees “plants.”  It has been reported that the Brotherhood’s goal is to form a “global Islamic state.”

With the election of Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammed Morsi to the Egyptian presidency in June of this year, mainstream media are acknowledging that the Egyptian government is now “run by the Muslim Brotherhood.”  Morsi praised Obama’s embracing of the “Arab Spring” movement as “quick and decisive.”

Islamists have threatened the Coptic Christian community, which numbers 10,000,000 in Egypt, over allegations that a member of the sect had participated in making the video which the Obama regime said was responsible for recent Middle Eastern violence.

The Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan is threatening King Abdullah to either meet their demands to change the form of government or “face Arab Spring street pressure for his abdication.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had urged the Egyptian Army, which had been loyal to former President Hosni Mubarak, to cede authority to Morsi after the election, which the Army had been reticent to do.  Morsi now holds full executive power.  His government was slow to condemn violent attacks on the U.S. embassies in Cairo and Benghazi, Libya.  At the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Tuesday, Morsi indicated that the video initially blamed for the September 11, 2012 attacks on the embassies was an example of free speech which required “responsibility, especially when it comes with serious implications for international peace and stability.”

The United States gives Egypt $2 billion every year in aid.

Obama insisted that the embassy attacks stemmed from an anti-Islamic video on Tuesday at the United Nations said that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”  Obama spent at least four years in Indonesia as a child, although it has been reported by at least once source that he actually spent much longer in the “most populous Muslim country,” arriving there at the age two.

Obama straddled the fence by denouncing the anti-Islamic video but claiming to champion free speech when he stated that attempts to limit it become “a tool to silence critics and oppress minorities.”  However, Obama’s supporters have attempted since the 2008 campaign to do just that:  ridicule, marginalize, disable, and “isolate” the “enemy” using Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.   Obama’s “Sovereign Citizen” campaign has also targeted anyone questioning his background or “birth certificate,” which has been declared a forgery by a law enforcement investigation.

In an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Obama said that the “one organizing principle” in regard to the Middle East uprisings was “Islam.”

On September 22, an interview between Egyptian President Muhammed Morsi and The New York Times was published in which Morsi affirmed that he was “brought up” with The Muslim Brotherhood, which has declared itself an enemy of the United States. During the interview, Morsi said that Egypt would not be “dictated” to by “U.S. rules” and was critical of the United States’ approach to “backing dictators” in the Middle East prior to his election.

Morsi was the first democratically-elected Egyptian leader in the history of the nation.  Since taking office, numerous reports of lynchings and other violence against Christians in Egypt have become public in mainstream publications.  Morsi told The New York Times that “the United States needed to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, showing greater respect for its values and helping build a Palestinian state, if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger.”

Obama had promised to “fundamentally change the United States of America” just days before he was declared the winner of the 2008 presidential election.

After Morsi’s interview with The New York Times, it was reported that Obama canceled a scheduled meeting with Morsi, allegedly to protect himself from political fallout six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, although the the Times article stated that a “request” from Morsi to meet with Obama had been quietly “dropped.”

The Muslim Brotherhood has been said to have influenced the U.S. by “insidious Islamist influence inside the Obama administration” which poses a threat to our national security.  Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy maintains that the Muslim Brotherhood advocates the imposition of Sharia Law throughout the Middle East.  An Obama-appointed U.S. Attorney, William C. Killian, was the keynote speaker last month at the opening of a new Islamic Center in Chattanooga, TN.

It has been reported that Sharia Law and the U.S. Constitution are incompatible, and Killian has prosecuted those attempting to defend the Constitution, holding them up as examples to others to refrain from “taking the law into their own hands.”

Upheaval is still occurring in Syria, where today two explosions have killed four security guards close to the army headquarters and as many as 30,000 people have lost their lives due to the violence.

U.S. embassies throughout the Middle East and India have been burned and desecrated since the September 11 attacks.  A former Muslim has spoken out and claimed that “We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility and compassion.  When time comes, we will stab them in the back.”

Obama has sent mixed messages to Israel in regard to Iran.  He has said that the U.S. “has Israel’s back“and that the U.S. will not assist Israel if it should strike Iran’s nuclear capabilities to protect itself. Obama refused to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while Netanyahu is visiting the U.S. to attend the U.N. meeting.

In his “60 Minutes” interview, Obama termed Israel’s concern about Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon “noise” and said that he and Netanyahu speak “all the time.”

Iran has said that it could strike Israel if it discovers that Israel has planned an attack. Iranian President and dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at the United Nations in New York on Wednesday, accusing the U.S. of “bullying.”  The U.S. delegation did not attend Ahmadinejad’s speech, claiming that it included “repulsive slurs against Israel.”

Will World War III begin with Obama in charge?

    “Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War Against them, or IN ADHERING TO THEIR ENEMIES, GIVING THEM AID AND COMFORT.”

    Oh well, just one more act of treason to add to Obama’s previous growing list.

    Dear Editor,
    Bingo!
    Poor Israel, but then they saw the writing on the wall when America actually went through with the charade of making a Muslim usurper its president in January, 2009.
    I’m sorry, but every time I hear “Arab Spring”, I just can’t help myself from thinking of “Springtime for Hitler and Germany”, but I don’t go away laughing as I did when I watched Mel Brook’s movie, “The Producers”. No, I shudder at the thought that Obama is actually publicly stating that he wants to limit free speech so we don’t blasphemy Mohammed, which means the beginning of the end for First Amendment rights for us all. Something to shudder at, I assure you all.
    Well, what the illegal immigrant Muslim de facto president says does not make it so, just as ALL the papers he signed while in office are, actually and in reality, NULL AND VOID, JUST AS OBAMA IS.
    What a joke, but I’m afraid the joke’s on us unless we kick every Muslim out of our country. OUR COUNTRY, remember? Obama isn’t one of us, he’s one of them, and it make no difference if you’re an Obot or not, they’ll slit your throat along with all the rest of us Infidels.
    Good editorial, glad you wrote it.
    Sincerely,
    OPOVV
