Barack Obama is Delusional. History Shows Him a Fool.

US President Obama waves from a golf cart in Kailua

This is President Obama’s reaction to the death of James Foley.  In the statement, he shows a naive, wishful view of World History.

Radicals are the “folks” who move history.  Radicals end nations and start nations.

Even our Founding Fathers were radicals.  Look back to the American Revolution.  The Revolutionaries carried out some nasty deeds.  Massacres…town burnings…hangings.  I’m fairly certain they beheaded a few people as well.

Obama seems to think that history is made by peaceful “folks” who suddenly agree that things should change.  I think he’s seen one too many “Faux Revolutions” in Eastern Europe.  He seems to think that those “upheavals” were the norm.  What happened when the Cold War ended and the walls came tumbling down.  The history of the era is not so bloodless as they seem.  The old regimes’ rulers died.  It’s just that they didn’t show it on TV.  The 90s upheavals were heavily sanitized here in the West.  We weren’t shown the deaths that are inevitable with any regime change.  These things are inherently violent.  

And then we had the Balkans.  Plenty of folks were killed.  Massacres were everywhere in the Balkans.  So much so that Clinton decided that he had to intervene.  Serbians hate America to this day.  

Below is the Obama delusion:

President Obama delivered the following remarks in Martha’s Vineyard on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the militant group Islamic State. Transcript courtesy of Federal News Service.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good afternoon, everybody.

Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group ISIL. Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother and a friend. He reported from difficult and dangerous places, bearing witness to the lives of people a world away.

He was taken hostage nearly two years ago in Syria, and he was courageously reporting at the time on the conflict there. Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world. He was 40 years old, one of five siblings, the son of a mom and dad who worked tirelessly for his release. Earlier today, I spoke to the Foleys and told them that we are all heartbroken at their loss and join them in honoring Jim and all that he did.

Now, Jim Foley’s life stands in stark contrast to his killers. Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.

They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.

People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy. The world is shaped by people like Jim Foley and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him. The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done and we act against ISIL, standing alongside others. The people of Iraq, who with our support are taking the fight to ISIL must continue coming together to expel these terrorists from their community. The people of Syria, whose story Jim Foley told, do not deserve to live under the shadow of a tyrant or terrorists. They have our support in their pursuit of a future rooted in dignity.

From governments and peoples across the Middle East, there has to be a common effort to extract this cancer so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of this kind of nihilistic ideologies. One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century. Friends and allies around the world, we share a common security and a common set of values that are rooted in the opposite of what we saw yesterday. And we will continue to confront this hateful terrorism and replace it with a sense of hope and civility.

And that’s what Jim Foley stood for, a man who lived his word, who courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings, who was liked and loved by friends and family. Today, the American people will all say a prayer for those who loved Jim. All of us feel the ache of his absence. All of us morn his loss. We keep in our prayers those other Americans who are separated from their families. And we will do everything that we can to protect our people and the timeless values that we stand for. May God bless and keep Jim’s memory. And may God bless the United States of America.

Most of the remarks were empty words.  Harmless.  Meant to make the Foley family feel as though the US did all it could to retrieve their son and bring him to safety.  This is and obvious lie but one that all Presidents tell the American people.  One can’t blame Obama for following in the footsteps of Reagan, Carter, FDR and LBJ.  Lies are common when Presidents speak to the America people.  

“All we have to fear is fear itself…;” said FDR.  He left out the Bankers and others who love to push America to war for profit.  After all, he was in cahoots with the Bankers.  Why would he speak truth to the power of the Bankers in American Foreign Policy.  If the American people were ever roused to the truth of American Banks…well, nothing.  Americans are too busy watching American Idol.

Obama says that no religion “teaches massacre of innocents.”  This lie ignores the commandments of God in the Old Testament and the Suras in the Qu’ran which continually command Muslims to murder the non-believer.  Until we come to terms with the truth that religions (faiths) do command murder, genocide and the killing of those who believe differently, we’re not going to successfully change the attitudes of the believers of this Earth.  We ignore the truths regarding these faiths at our own peril.  Obama should know better as he is a secularist and only pretends to be a church goer for political reasons.  It’s time, or rather it is past time, to speak the truth to these religions and of these religions.  

Christianity and Islam have blood stained histories.  That much they have in common.  Both are knee deep in the blood of innocents.  Let us speak the truth.

Obama also says that “people like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy.”  

This is half truth at best.  Stalin did not fail.  Mao did not fail.  Pol Pot did not fail.  Ho Chi Minh did not fail.  Tamerlane did not fail.  Genghis Khan did not fail.  Alexander the Great did not fail.  The radical and the violent succeed.  The radical and the violent do not fail.  To say that the future is won by those who build and not those who destroy ignores 6,000 years of human history.  Even America has destroyed.  The American North invaded the American South and destroyed it.  The American South still feels the wrath of the Northern Invasion.  

Obama’s hero Che Guevara is one of those who was a destroyer.  He believed and acted on the belief that Capitalist societies must be destroyed in order to re-build a more egalitarian society.  He acted similarly to ISIS and al Qaeda.  Che used the tactic of terrorism to destroy the governments in Central and South America.  

Perhaps, this has Obama confused.  


Burning the Qu’ran

To Muslims, it's sacred. To anyone else in the world, it's just a damn book.

1. Don’t spread rumours. Whenever you hear something which concerns your collective life, communicate it to the appropriate authorities so as to make them reach a correct conclusion after proper investigation:

QL_12_001.gif (6156 bytes)

(4:83) “When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they divulge it, although their attachment and obedience to the (Divine) System requires that they had only referred it to the Rasool (central authority) or those charged with authority amongst them (officers of the lower ranks); in case they refer it to them, the specialists could verify and ascertain the truth.”

Afghanistan, 21 February 2012

Afghans are rioting in Kabul and Bagram AGAIN.  Blocking streets.  Attacking innocent civilians and Westerners.  Why?  Another violent reaction to a perceived slight.  US Soldiers inadvertently including Qu’rans in a pile of files and documents that were being burned.

Some lower Enlisted guys were told to take some old files out to the burn pit. Apparently, it was a lot of stuff. Most of it in Dari. Included in the piles of stuff were copies of the Qu’ran. These kids had no clue as to what the stuff was. They only knew that they were told to burn it.

While they were burning these materials, some local nationals were in the area. These local nationals (AFGHANS) noticed that there were Qu’rans and other religious materials being burned.  Instead of asking why the soldiers were burning the material, the Afghans jumped to the worst possible conclusion.  They stormed off the base and riled up the masses outside of Bagram and spread vicious rumors about the Soldiers of Bagram.  By morning, the rioting had spread to Kabul.

The locals didn’t stop and ask the guys who were burning the stuff if they indeed knew what they were burning. They offered no advice or warning. They simply became enraged and started riots and protests.  Typical Muslim behavior the world over.  See something happening, become enraged and jump to conclusions.

AFTER the Qu’rans had been burned, the Afghans walked off the job and proceeded to spread the news that US Soldiers at Bagram were burning Qu’rans.

My question is this:

Why did the local nationals (AFGHANS) not stop the guys and tell them that they were about to burn Qu’rans?  Why did they not inquire as to the nature of the Soldiers’ reasoning in burning the materials that included Qu’rans?

I’ve read the book and, therefore, I know what a Qu’ran looks like. A guy who has never seen a Qu’ran isn’t going to know that it’s a Qu’ran. It’s going to look like some book with squiggly ass writing on it in the middle of a bunch of other old papers, files and books with squiggly ass writing on it. If there are boxes of books and files and a few lower Enlisted guys are told to take the shit out to the burn pit and burn it, they’re going to take the shit out to the burn pit and burn it. I’ve thrown tons of old stuff into the fire pits in Bagram, Camp Stone and other places. If it’s old shit, I rarely look through it. I just start ripping, wadding and burning and throwing.

So Afghans watched a group of Soldiers burn some Qu’rans along with a bunch of other stuff.  Having simply watched the Qu’rans burning and not offering any warning to anyone involved that they were about to burn the Holy Qu’ran, the Afghans spread the news that US Soldiers are burning Qu’rans. Kabulis and other Afghans are now out in force blocking roads, burning tires and rioting in general.  As a result of this, one or two of Afghans and possibly, but doubtfully, a Coalition member or two will wind up dead or injured due to the stupidity of a couple of Afghans who could have forestalled all of this by simply saying; “Hey, do you know that those are Qu’rans that you are about to burn?”

Had an Afghan told the Soldiers this, not one Qu’ran would have been burned.  Another thing that could have forestalled this would have been a little situational awareness on the part of the NCO or Officer who ordered the files to be burned.  Having said this, the US Army should not be in the business of handing out religious books.  If that is done at all, it should be in the hands of the various Chaplains in country.

My opinion. The Afghans should grab the guys who watched the Soldiers burn the Qu’rans and spread fallacious stories and hang their asses. They allowed this to happen and then spread the news so that idiots could have an excuse to act like idiots.

Bottom line, though.  It’s a fuckin’ book. If God had touched it or they were copies carried back from the Kaba’a or they were ancient manuscripts that were carried by Abu Bakr or Hussein and Ali, I could understand. But these were US mass produced copies of the Qu’ran.   Not every copy of the Qu’ran is sacred.  Some of them are just books that were mass produced.  The Mullahs need to stop acting like and telling the Umma that all copies of the Qu’ran are sacred.  Nothing that is massed produced is sacred.  I don’t give a fuck if God himself hands each one out himself.  If it’s massed produced, it’s about as sacred as a Happy Meal.

American and other Coalition soldiers have shed their blood in defense of Afghanistan.  Shoulder to Shoulder or  Shona ba Shona and Ooga pa ooga as the Afghans say.   Coalition Forces have died defending the Afghans right to worship as they see fit.  Americans, Canadians, British, Romanians, French and soldiers of other Nations have given their lives for the people of Afghanistan.  The Afghans overwhelmingly express a desire for America and the Coalition to stay on past 2014.  Afghans are fearful of a resurgent Taliban.  Yet, the moment an American or a Coalition Soldier makes a mistake concerning their fuckin’ book, the Afghans go insane and jump to the worst possible conclusion.

The actions by these protesting Afghans dishonors every Soldier who has given his life for the cause of Afghan independence and security.

I have news for Afghans and Muslims world wide.  The overwhelming majority of non-Muslims could give a fuck less about Islam or the Qu’ran.  That includes the majority of the International Force fighting for your right to act like complete idiots each time someone pisses on or burns a Qu’ran.   If it weren’t for the Coalition of Nations and their Soldiers including those who inadvertently burned the Qu’ran last night, Afghans would still be under the oppressive reign of the Taliban.  Most of us in the West don’t care enough about Islam to burn a book which is essentially meaningless to us.  However, the more ignorant that the more idiotic of the Muslim Faith act in “defense” of their religion, the more people dislike the Faith of Islam and the more likely people are to see Islam as an enemy of peace.  The more Muslims react with this seemingly instinctively visceral insanity after any instance of supposed disrespect to the religion of Islam, the more likely folks are to see Islam as an exercise in intellectual and spiritual fallacy.  The more likely regular folks are to see it as an enemy.

Muslims, grow the fuck up.  Neither you nor your religion is entitled to respect.  Respect is earned.  If you’ll note, the Islamic world is the poorest region of the world.  The Islamic world is one of the most illiterate regions on the planet.  The world of Islam is one of the most violent regions in the world.  The Nations of Islam are the most oppressive on the planet.  Again, grow the fuck up.

Most people in the West know next to nothing about Islam.  The one thing that nearly all people who have any awareness of Islam know is that many of it’s adherents are petty lunatics and are prone to riots and violence over any perceived insult to Islam, Mohommad or the Qu’ran.  We don’t care about your religion.  Keep it to yourself.  As a non-Muslim, I am not obligated to show respect for your Faith.  If I do show it respect, it is not because I am obliged to do so.  That respect is due to the Muslims whom I have known over the years for whom I have respect.  These folks earned my respect.  The morons out there rioting over inadvertently burned Qu’rans burn away the respect that those folks earned from me.  The majority of Muslims whom I have met are excellent people.  I don’t see them doing this incessant rioting and whining over smallish slights to their religion.  They realize that not everyone believes as they do.  They realize that some folks out there make their religion look bad.  The folks out there rioting over cartoons, inadvertently or purposefully burned Qu’rans and Fitna videos make all Muslims look foolish.  These are the Muslims who make it possible for the World to look at the Muslim world as an illiterate, insane backwater that is not worthy or ready for self-determination or self leadership.  These fools make the World of Islam ripe for exploitation.  These fools make it possible for the Islamic world to be dehumanized on a grand scale.  These fools make possible the Saddam Husseins, Hosni Mubaraks, Khomeinis, Ahmadinejads and Bashar al-Assads.  These fools make it possible for the West to maintain relations with the House of Saud.  The West would rather deal with these mad men than the mass of lunatics represented by the rioters of the Muslim World.

It’s extremely hard to defend Islam or Muslims when they act like fucking morons.  Please stop acting like complete and utter morons!


Get a grip.  It would help if Muslims actually read the Qu’ran which they hold so sacred:

(24:15-16) “When you received it on your tongues and spoke with your mouths that of which you had no knowledge, and you deemed it a trifle, while with Allah Almighty it was serious. And why did you not, when you heard it, say: It beseems us not to talk of it. Glory be to Thee! This is a great calumny”

You Will Be Losers

This sign is right outside of the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth

Smells like tolerance to me…

Speaks volumes to the propaganda of certain parties and their agenda to turn the tide of public opinion against Israel.  Arabs/Muslims in Israel are as tolerated/accepted and as free as those in Europe and the United States.  That tolerance, acceptance and freedom ends when the Muslims resort to acts of terror.

I felt completely safe in most of Israel.  The only time that I felt endangered was around Palestinians because they noted that I was an American and had been a soldier by a pin I was wearing and my bearing.

In the end, Israel creates life out of the desert.  Palestine does nothing but destroys and tears down.  The Palestinian leadership would much rather destroy itself battering itself against Israel than build it’s people up and create a Palestinian Nation.

That is the major difference to me.


Let’s Build a Mormon Temple in Makkah (Mecca)

So! I was thinking. I’d like to build a synagogue and a Mormon Temple in Mekkah, Saudi Arabia. I feel Christians and Jews should have a place to worship when they visit Mekkah. What’s that you say? Non-Muslims aren’t allowed to travel to Makkah. But, then….why…well, why are they offended that Switzerland banned …minarets when they ban whole groups of humanity from their town?

Mecca (pronounced /ˈmɛkə/), also spelled Makkah (English: /ˈmækə/; Arabic: مكة‎ Makkah and in full: Arabic: مكّة المكرمة‎ transliterated Makkah Al Mukarrammah [mækːæt ælmukarːamæ]) is the holiest meeting site in Islam, closely followed by Medina. The city is modern, cosmopolitan and while being closed to non-Muslims, is nonetheless ethnically diverse.[1][2][3]

Muslim tradition attributes the beginning of Mecca to Ishmael‘s descendants. In the 7th century, the Islamic prophet Muhammad proclaimed Islam in the city which was by then an important trading center. After 966, Mecca was led by local sharifs until 1924 when the Ottoman Empire collapsed and it came under the rule of the Saudis.[4] In its modern period, Mecca has seen tremendous expansion in size and infrastructure.

The modern day city is the capital of Saudi Arabia‘s Makkah Province, in the historic Hejaz region. With a population of 1.7 million (2008), the city is located 73 km (45 mi) inland from Jeddah in a narrow valley at a height of 277 m (910 ft) above sea level.

Where is the UN condemnation over the fact that only Muslims can enter Makkah?

They certainly stepped up quickly enough to condemn Swizerland because they voted against allowing minarets to be built in their country.

Saudi Arabia, the country from which most terrorism originates, bans whole people from even entering their city.

Some enterprising Swiss individual needs to petition to build a Church or Temple in Makkah.  See how well that goes over.

Entry to Mecca for Non-Muslims

“Non-Muslim Bypass:” Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter Mecca.

Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter Mecca under Saudi law.[1][37]

The Saudi government supports their position using Sura 9:28 from the Qur’an:

“O you who believe! The Mushrikeen (idolaters) are (spiritually) unclean, so they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year; and if you fear poverty then Allah will enrich you out of His grace if He please; surely Allah is Knowing Wise.”[Qur’an 9:28]

The existence of cities closed to non-Muslims and the mystery of the Hajjis have often aroused intense curiosity in people from around the world. Some have falsely claimed to be Muslims in order to visit the city of Mecca and the Grand Mosque to experience the Hajj for themselves. The first to leave a record was Ludovico di Varthema of Bologna in 1503.[38] The most famous account of a foreigner’s journey to Mecca is A Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, written by Richard Francis Burton.[39] Burton traveled as a Qadiriyyah Sufi from Afghanistan; his name, as he signed it in Arabic below his frontispiece portrait for The Jew The Gypsy and El Islam, was al-Hajj ‘Abdullah.[citation needed] Individuals who use fake certificates of Muslim identity to enter may be arrested and prosecuted by Saudi authorities.[40]
