IS BARACK SHEDDING HIS ISLAMIC SKIN?
NOW ONLY WANTS TO “REDUCE HOSTILITY TOWARD ISRAEL”
President Barack Obama said that his egregious attempts to reach out to Muslims reflects his desire to reduce hostility toward Israel and the West.
Speaking to Israeli TV in an interview from the White House Wednesday, Obama said his “outreach to the Muslim community is designed precisely to reduce the antagonism and the dangers posed by a hostile Muslim world to Israel and to the West.”
He said Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is somebody who understands that we’ve got a fairly narrow window of opportunity” and that “we probably won’t have a better opportunity than we have right now.”
“The fact that he is not perceived as a dove in some ways can be helpful in the sense that any successful peace will have to include the hawks and the doves, on both sides, and in the same way that Richard Nixon here in the United States was able to go to China because he had very strong anti-communist credentials, I think Prime Minister Netanyahu may be very well positioned to bring this about,” Obama maintained, adding that direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians are necessary to build trust.
“I think that if you have direct talks between Abu Mazen, Netanyahu, their teams, that builds trust. And trust then allows for both sides to not be so jumpy or paranoid about every single move that’s being made,” Obama said.
Asked about many his commitment to the Jewish state, Obama said, “The United States under my administration has provided more security assistance to Israel than any administration in history. And we’ve got greater security cooperation between our two countries than at any time in our history. And the single most important threat to Israel — Iran, and its potential possession of a nuclear weapon — has been my number one foreign policy priority over the course of the last 18 months.”
In his effort to establish U.S. ties to Islam, President Obama, speaking before Turkey’s Parliament last year, said: The United States is not – and will never be — at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical not just in rolling back the violent ideologies that people of all faiths reject but also to strengthen opportunities for all people.”
Similarly, when addressing a Muslim crowd at the University of Cairo, Mr. Obama said: “American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, served in government, stood for civil rights, started businesses, taught at our Universities, excelled in our sports arenas, won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch.”
The President, by making these remarks, seemed unaware that Islam only became a factor in U.S. history in the wake of The Immigration and Naturalization Reform Act of 1965, and that there remains no record of any Muslim fighting on behalf of the U.S.A. in World War I, World War II, the Korean conflict, and the war in Viet Nam.
