I saw it coming. Two years ago I could see the writing on the wall. The Middle East was a powder keg and it was about to blow. How could I, your basic working, concerned American see the future when our “brilliant” leaders could not? How was it that day after day I could read between the lines and listen to the words of people who were warning us that this was going to happen… yet our government couldn’t?
One of my favorite “tell it like it is – no sugarcoating” patriots is Glenn Beck. I would try to watch his show every day on FOX because I knew that he was going to speak plainly and truthfully no matter how difficult it was to hear. He laid it out plain and simple and it made perfect sense. While the Obama administration was gleefully high-fiving themselves over the ousting of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, Glenn was warning of instability and unrest.
At the time, Egypt was being led by someone who, in the least, was on speaking terms with the US, and had kept the peace with Israel. So why was it so necessary to get rid of him without knowing what the outcome would be?
The odds were that leadership would be taken over by a very radical group called the Muslim Brotherhood. They believe that the only law is the law of Allah (Sharia) and they are sworn to overawe the enemies of Allah. So I was dumbfounded when I heard our own government officials speaking to Congress about how the Muslim Brotherhood was basically just a “small part” of the new Egyptian government and how they were primarily a secular group.
Really?! These people are blinder than the blind Sheik!
Libya was next. Gaddafi was taken out with no plan on whom or what was to replace him. Of course once again radical Islam got a foothold and this week we saw a planned attack on our embassy, which killed 4 Americans.
It happened on 9/11. Coincidence? I don’t think so. This was pent up anger against America, Israel and our way of life. They hate us. Why is that so hard for this administration and the far left to understand? They want us dead, they want Israel annihilated, end of story.
Yet, who gets invited to the White House? An invitation went out to Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi. He will be a guest this month. However when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested a meeting, there was no room in Mr. Obamas busy schedule.
And when word came down that one of our most distinguished ambassadors to the Middle East and three other Americans had been brutally murdered in a planned terror attack, what did Obama do? He jetted off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas and put off an important intel meeting! Even Jimmy Carter stuck around the White House during the hostage crisis!!!!
It should be clear by now where Barack Obama’s loyalties lie. Obama does not see this as a danger. On the Dr. Oz show on Thursday, right after the attack, Michelle Obama said that OBESITY is a national security threat–not a word about the threats in the Middle East!
We can all see where this is heading. The Middle East is on fire and the reaction from our leaders like Obama, Clinton and Feinstein is “how could this happen?” They ask the question, why would these people do this when we give them so much aid (money) and engage them in discussion?
The answer is, it’s because these people don’t respect us, they are not afraid of us and they know that with our current leadership we are a pushover. Iran knows it, Syria knows it, Yemen knows it and I’m afraid that Israel does as well. Netanyahu is coming to grips with the fact that he is alone in this fight because Obama does not have the will or the inclination to be an ally.
How embarrassing is it that every time we get hit the first thing we do is apologize? With a response like that do you think the radicals will stop their attacks? At this point if I was Netanyahu I would say to Obama, “Thanks, but no thanks. We don’t apologize.”
The reaction to this terror attack on Christopher Stevens and 3 other Americans should be absolute outrage. There should be no money sent to Libya, no aid, and a clear message should be sent to all of these countries that we will retaliate. If we show strength and anger perhaps we can gain back some of our dignity in the world, if not, then we can expect more attacks on American soil.
Please watch Frank Gaffney’s 10 part series on Sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood. In this political climate, it’s definitely worth your time.
