The ‘Peaceful Religion’ of Islam Confronts President Obama

For three years of his presidency, President Obama has travelled the globe promoting the idea that Islam is a religion of peace. How many Americans believed that there would be a new foreign policy because our Muslim-friendly president was reaching out to the Islamic world?

And like so much of his presidency, President Obama made excuses for his Islamic brethren. For example, he said, “The phrase Jihad has lot of meanings within Islam, and is subject to a lot of different interpretations.”

He noted that there are “more than a billion people who practice Islam and an overwhelming majority of them . . . reaffirm peace and justice, and fairness and tolerance. I think all of us recognize that this great religion in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence against innocent people that is never justified.”

If just ten percent of a billion Muslims are not peaceful, that’s 100,000,000 extremists, about one-third the population of the United States.

Three recent headlines caught my attention:

Muslim Brotherhood Starts Crucifixions. It was President Obama who supported the efforts of the “Arab Spring.” The Muslim Brotherhood is now in power, and according to reports, “the radical Muslims have begun crucifying opponents of newly installed President Mohammad Morsi.”

Another headline states that leaders of the peaceful religion of Islam in Iran are saying that Israel’s existence is an “insult to all humanity.” The most persecuted people on the globe is an insult. This is envy speaking. The tiny nation of Israel has more Nobel Prize winners than all the Islamic nations combined. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, said confronting Israel is an effort to “protect the dignity of all human beings.” No, getting rid of Israel is a way to make backward Islamic nations look good.

A Saudi Arabian Islamic cleric is claiming that Jews drink the blood of children, a centuries-old lie that ignorant Muslims perpetuate and believe:

“Saudi cleric Salman Al-Odeh, a well-known scholar revered by millions globally, went on a lengthy tirade against the Jews during an interview Monday in which he stated that ‘the role of the Jews is to wreak destruction, to wage war, and to practice deception and extortion,’ according to a translation of his remarks by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“Al-Odeh ranted about the use of human blood in Jewish religious rituals, a notorious anti-Semitic smear commonly referred to as a ‘blood libel.’

“‘It is well known that the Jews celebrate several holidays, one of which is the Passover, or the matzos holiday,’ he said.”

According to the “blood libel” charge, the blood of children would be mixed with matzos, an unleavened bread eaten by Jews during Passover. The insane Muslim “cleric” Al-Odeh, Jewish people “would lure a child in order to sacrifice him in the religious rite that they perform during that holiday.”

It’s time that President Obama come clean about his allegiances. It’s not a minority of Muslims that believe and perpetuate these lies. These beliefs are a cancer than eat at the hearts and minds of Muslims. They want to see the world destroyed so they can rule over its ashes.
