First of all, We Will Not Call President Obama Evil Here Today.
This statement alone is enough to refute that charge, “Bin Laden was no martyr. He was a mass murderer who offered a message of hate — an insistence that Muslims had to take up arms against the West, and that violence against men, women and children was the only path to change. He rejected democracy and individual rights for Muslims in favor of violent extremism; his agenda focused on what he could destroy —not what he could build.”
We also nominally agree with the President’s content in this statement if not his purpose, “The United States supports a set of universal rights. And these rights include free speech, the freedom of peaceful assembly, the freedom of religion, equality for men and women under the rule of law, and the right to choose your own leaders —whether you live in Baghdad or Damascus, Sanaa or Tehran.”
Unfortunately, the President is a liar when he tells Americans and our friends, “Such tolerance is particularly important when it comes to religion. In Tahrir Square, we heard Egyptians from all walks of life chant, ‘Muslims, Christians, we are one.’” That is not the message in or from Egypt. No, as the President clearly knows, Egyptian Muslims and Christians are not one. Under Mubarak, the previous tyrant, Egyptian Christians lived their faith in freedom and safety. Under Islam, Egypt’s new tyrant, Christians are attacked, massacred and Churches are burned.
Let us be clear, this is not tolerance, this is evil. Worse, Islamic evil does not just attack Christians and Jews, Islam smothers the very God given humanity of every man, woman, and child caught in its darkness. Furthermore, “. . . supports a set of universal rights,” is not what America is or is about. Those are man determined and negotiated “rights.” America is about “endowed by their creator” rights. This is the profound and disastrous difference in President Obama. President John Kennedy declared:
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
There is the difference. Speaking eloquently for that America Ronald Reagan called, “A shining city on a hill,” Kennedy re-declared America’s purpose and destiny—the survival and success of Liberty.
Kennedy defended good but this President pursues accommodation with evil. Consider Obama’s apparent obvious intent to use American power to set the course for the destruction and demise of Israel. “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines . . .” is out of the question. Actually, Israel should declare that the “West Bank” is part of Israel. As the United States has not (and should not) looked back at the annexation of New Mexico, Israel should accept the Wet Bank as partial permanent compensation for the cost in life and treasure at the hands of Islamic darkness, evil and death for more than 60 years.
Our friend, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, summarized what I hope is in the heart of every American. She said:
“Today President Barack Obama has again indicated that his policy towards Israel is to blame Israel first. In a shocking display of betrayal towards our ally, President Obama is now calling on Israel to give up yet more land and return to its 1967 borders. If there is anything that has been proven, the policy of land-for-peace has meant that Israel has continually had to give away increasing amounts of its land and decrease its size. In exchange, it still has not known security. President Obama wants to further this policy by putting Israel in a very vulnerable position with borders that would be extremely difficult to defend. . . .
“America has stood with Israel since President Harry Truman recognized Israel a mere 11 minutes after Israel became a state in 1948. But during his tenure as President of the United States, President Obama has initiated a policy which shows contempt for Israel’s concern and safety. In an era dubbed the ‘Arab Spring’ we have seen increased volatility in the Middle East region, and President Obama has only added to the heightened hostility by calling on Israel to return to the 1967 borders. I disagree with President Obama and I stand with our friend Israel 100 percent. I am saddened and disappointed deeply by President Obama’s statement.”
