It is now clearer than ever that the pro-Muslim actions and non-actions of our “First Muslim President” are coming home to roost – with a vengeance. After over four years of his administration, here is where we find ourselves today with regard to attacks and threatened attacks by terrorists and terrorist nations.
This week, as any rational person suspected, Muslim terrorists were behind the bombing of the Boston Marathon. Muslim terrorist brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – likely the puppets of a much broader Islamic terrorist cell that has yet to be identified or apprehended – detonated pressure-cooker bombs, a frequently used bombing method in the Middle East in particular, killing three and wounding about 170 other innocent bystanders.
At first, Obama administration officials, as has become the norm, refused to implicate a possible Muslim terrorist plot, Obama himself describing the attack as a mere “tragedy.” Indeed, given the latent and actual claims of persecution of Muslims in this country by Obama and his allies, like the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), even conservative channels like Fox News shied away from using the “M” word until it was crystal clear who had perpetrated the bombing. For example, Bret Baier of Fox News almost choked Friday morning when he broadcast the names and backgrounds of the bombers and sheepishly revealed their Muslim roots. This politically correct sensitivity, orchestrated and furthered by Obama and his minions, has contributed to the rise of Muslim extremism in our country. Terrorists like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to avoid even the appearance of prejudice against Muslims, are even given scholarships to prestigious schools and entrees into other venues of American society, which they can use as cover for their plots. In short, Obama has set the tone and led the way in giving this green light to his fellow Muslims bent on terror.
Nor was there hardly any mention on any station or other press entity of even the possibility that Muslim terror was involved in the huge explosion that occurred in West, Texas, where a fertilizer plant blew up Wednesday, just days after the Boston Marathon bombing. Typically, here is how the New York Times described the explosion:
“The blast was so powerful that the United States Geological Survey registered it as a 2.1 magnitude earthquake. It reduced an apartment complex to a charred skeleton, leveled homes in a five-block radius and burned with such intensity that railroad tracks were fused. It killed up to 15 people and injured up to 180. Volunteer firefighters were missing. Residents of a nursing home were pulled from debris and rushed to hospitals. …
“By Thursday evening, one day after a fertilizer plant here caught fire and then exploded, no one among the hundreds of local state and federal officials and first responders who converged on this town north of Waco was certain about the cause. They only knew its effect.” [“Blast at Plant Tears at Heart Of Texas Town” by Manny Fernandez and John Schwartz]
This intentionally “clueless” rendition of the likely cause of the blast continues to this day, despite the hard fact that fertilizer bombs are commonly used in the Middle East, were employed in the massive Oklahoma City federal building explosion – for which there was evidence that former Iraqi Sunni Muslim dictator Saddam Hussein played a role (I brought a lawsuit against Saddam Hussein and Iraq for the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing) – and that the blast occurred in West, Texas, the former home of none other than former President George W. Bush. What symmetry and deadly timing with the Boston Marathon bombing – yet hardly a mention in the mainstream media of even the possibility of Muslim terrorism. And, of course, Obama and his comrades – including the FBI – refuse to even acknowledge the possibility (or likelihood) that the two events are somehow tied to Muslim terrorism.
And, while a ricin attack of this past week on a U.S. senator and, ironically, Obama himself apparently proved to be from a non-Muslim source, the irony again is that even the possibility of an Islamic connection was hardly mentioned by either the government or our mainstream media. This is despite the apparent similarity in timing and method to the Sept. 11, 2001, anthrax terror attack, which to this day have never been “solved.”
Finally, while the crisis over North Korean threats of nuclear war may have appeared to naïve government officials and the mainstream media to have waned this last week – as a result of Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and our ally South Korea having caved in to the terrorist state’s demand for “respectful” negotiations – the Islamic Republic of Iran continues with its bellicose nuclear threats against Israel and the United States. The Iranian-North Korean axis of evil continues on with a green light from Obama and company that the United States prefers “diplomacy” over strong action.
As readers of this column know well, I was never a fan of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, who got us into poorly thought-out and fought wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – wars we have now all but lost. But at least “W” and “Uncle Dick” projected strength and did not appease and roll over to Muslim and other terrorist interests. And, during their tenure in office, post Sept. 11, we did not see the stark rise in terrorist activity on our soil, as we are now experiencing, particularly from apparent and likely Muslim sources.
Neville Chamberlain of pre-World War II days would have been proud of Obama and his pro-Muslim minions in the administration. Their actions and non-actions have furthered a march to terror by Muslims similar to what Chamberlain “accomplished” with the Nazis in the years leading up to that great war. Thanks to our “Muslim President,” Muslim terrorism in this country is again on the rise, and it threatens the very survival of our nation.
