Americans are wondering why Barack Obama and his 2014 Administration continue attempts to redefine what the word “terrorist’ means in our Department of Justice, law enforcement, military and other government policies.
“You cannot win a battle against radical Islamic terrorism if you’re unwilling to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,'” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) repeated the message this weekend. When discussing the 2011 Benghazi attack in Libya, Cruz reminds Americans that the White House continues to “edit out every reference to al Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism.”
“And the most consistent error of the Clinton/Obama foreign policy is a failure to understand the nature of the people we’re dealing with, of our enemies,” Cruz speaks out.
It didn’t help avert suspicions about Obama’s affection of Muslims and Islamic faiths when Mustafa Carroll, an executive director with the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) told a crowd in Austin in the spring of 2013 that “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”
When reports indicate that Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies missed the Ft. Hood attack as well as efforts of dozens of Muslims who planned and worked to kill Americans in mass destruction acts, many question why Obama’s team is promoting Muslim virtues.
The first warning for many was when at the beginning of his term, Obama ordered NASA administrator Charles Bolden to “reach out to the Muslim world” as one of the program’s top three new objectives. There was national outrage when Army Major Nadal Malik Hassan killed 13 people at Fort Hood and Obama’s White House tried to tone down the rhetoric by not using the words Islamic or Muslim terrorist. They preferred the title “violent extremists” instead.
“They say our enemy is violent extremism,” Senator Joe Lieberman was one of the first congressmen to call Obama out in 2011. “It’s not. It’s not animal rights extremists or white supremacy extremists. It’s Islamic extremism.”
Sen. Marco Rubio, insists that Obama will not identify the terrorists for what they are — radicalized Islamists.
“My problem with this administration is they refuse to acknowledge the existence of this kind of terrorism,” Mr. Rubio said.
After the Benghazi, Libya attack of Sept. 11, 2012 the Obama spin team lied to the world by denying it was terrorism. Instead they accused the terrorism and killings on run-of-the-mill demonstrators upset with a video.
Sen. Cruz says the Obama administrations efforts to protect the enemy by trying to redefine the term ‘terrorism’ helps “them to keep making the mistakes over and over and over again, whether it is releasing five senior Taliban terrorists without understanding that these individuals will likely return to active warfare against the United States; whether it is in the case of Iraq, not understanding the threat posed by ISIS.”
Regarding the Tsarnaev brothers attack at the Boston Marathon, Rubio said “the bottom line is they were radicalized and they carried out an attack because of that ideology.”
“This is the emerging face of terrorism against the United States by radical Islamists, and we have to have security systems that recognize that and can deal with that because the No. 1 job of the federal government is to secure our national security,” Rubio emphasized.
In June 2009 Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad killed a solider at a military recruiting office in Little Rock, Ark. In September of that year, Najibullah Zazi, a self-proclaimed member of al Qaeda, tried to set off bombs in New York City’s subway. Just two months later Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to explode a bomb hidden in his underwear onboard a flight over the United States. In May 2010 Faisal Shahzad tried to ignite a car bomb in Times Square, New York.
A 2009 report produced at the Army Command and General Staff at the Fort Leavenworth School of Advanced Military Studies acknowledge that “moderate Muslims are not exercising moderation; they are simply applying other means to accomplish the same goal of establishing global Islamic dominance.”
The Obama Administration continues to scrub all law enforcement, intelligence and military teachings on Islam. Any presentations to these groups must now be pre-approved by a special Department of Justice panel, some reports indicate.
“Political Correctness is killing us: How can we properly identify the enemy, analyze his weaknesses, and defeat him, if we are NEVER permitted to examine him from the most basic doctrinal level?” stated a report by Army Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, from the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va. The Obama machine went to work to get Dooley fired and the information scrubbed.
Other questions that raise concern about Obama’s Muslim agenda include:
1. Sealing his citizenship, college and social security records.
2. Sending millions of U.S. tax payer monies to Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority.
3. Refusing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his trip to America.
4. Bowing to a Saudi King in the tradition of Muslims.
5. Emphasizing his middle name, “Hussein,” at this Cairo University speech.
6. Canceling the National Day of Prayer at the White House, but indulging on the Muslim holiday, Ramadan.
7. Endorsing the Ground Zero Mosque.
8. Supporting the Palestinian state on the West Bank.
9. Associations with Muslim Rev. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.
10. Twenty year relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
11. Follower of Harvard law professor Derrick Bell.
12. Scrubbing all references to terrorism from the daily vocabulary of the Executive Branch of government.
13. Selecting anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Sen. Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense.
14. Not confronting are attempting to halt the nuclear weapons program of Muslim
Particularly disturbing is the statement made by the co-founder and past chairman of CAIR, Omar M. Ahmad. “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” he emphasized to a reporter, and the Quran “should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Texas Representative Louie Gohmert publically stated “Muslim brotherhood members” has “influence” in Obama’s administration.
“It’s very clear to everybody but this administration that radical Islam is at war against us,” Gohmert said in an interview after the Boston bombing. “And I’m hoping either this administration will wake up or a new one will come in at the next election before irreparable damage is done.”
“Thank God for the moderates that don’t approve of what’s being done,” Gohmert continued. “But this administration has so many Muslim brotherhood members that have influence that they just are making wrong decisions for America.”
Rep. Gohmert was the first politician to reveal that “radical Islamists” were being “trained to act like Hispanic” in regards to crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
“We know al Qaeda has camps over with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border,” Gohmert admitted.
In October 2011 Gohmert grilled then Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano over information that Mohamed Elibiary, a public supporter of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and other anti-American extremists, had used his personal computer to access sensitive top secret intelligence reports to shop information to the media. Napolitano, who personally swore Elibiary to the Homeland Security’s Advisory Council in 2010, knew his appointment permitted him access to the database of sensitive intelligence reports. Her deception was revealed when Texas Dept. of Public Safety Director, Patrick Poole said Napolitano “had been fully briefed on the matter” the night before her testimony to Mr. Gohmert and the Congressional Judiciary Committee.
The Pew Research Center, in a survey of Obama’s religious and political preference, stated “a substantial and growing number of Americans say that Barack Obama is a Muslim, while the proportion saying he is a Christian has declined.”
