A report from the Hindu outlines president Obama’s attempt to end the war in Afghanistan by using the diplomatic skills of Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi.
This government’s concept of good and evil should be the only issue in the halls of Congress, our churches and at our kitchen tables.
There comes a time when we must question whether our country is good. We can base this decision on actions such as legislation, personal associations and national allies. As I have written previously, we are at the point in the United States where we must choose sides: good or evil. Rationalization of our actions does not invalidate evil and the gray areas which we have accepted for far too long have now led us to either economic collapse, war or both.
Good or Evil?
1. National Health Care. If this was good, why did Nancy Pelosi tell the American people to pass it in order to see what was in it?
2. The Right to Protect. Does a policy developed by Valerie Jarrett give the United States the right to invade Libya and coordinate the final assault that led to the execution of Gaddafi? If it does, why are we not doing the same in Syria which is treating its people more egregiously?
3. The National Defense Authorization Act.
4. Eric Holder’s decision to not prosecute “his people” in the Philadelphia voter intimidation case.
5. Twelve legislators out of 535 voting to continue tax cuts and unemployment benefits in December 2011.
6. Supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a means to Democracy?
7. The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice attacking Sheriff Arpaio for enforcing immigration laws.
8. Fast & Furious. Over 200 dead in Mexico in the administration’s attempt to subvert the second amendment. Add the cover up by the Department of Justice.
9. The Federal Reserve’s covert bailout of European banks. $80 billion missing in just one day two weeks ago.
10. The ability of Congressmen to benefit from insider trading by manipulating stock prices through legislation and abuse of power?
Let 2012 be known as the second 1776.
The surrender is complete now. The Hindu reports that the Obama administration has turned to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading jurist, to mediate secret negotiations between the United States and the Taliban.
Qaradawi urges that Islam must dominate the world, under a global caliphate governed by sharia. He maintains that Islam “will conquer Europe [and] will conquer America.” He sometimes qualifies that the conquering will be done “not through the sword but through da’wa,” but the qualification is a feint.
Da’wa sounds harmless — it refers to missionary work to spread Islam. Islam, however, is not like other religions. The idea is not to spread a set of spiritual principles but incrementally to impose a full-scale social system with its own authoritarian legal code, covering all aspects of life and instituting a caste system in which women and non-Muslims are subjugated. Nor is da’wa like other missionary work; it is the use of all available means of pressure — political campaigns, lawfare, infiltration of the media, control of the education system, etc. — to advance (a) the acceptance of Islamic principles and (b) the evisceration of principles (e.g., free speech, economic liberty) that undergird competitors, in particular, Western civilization. Moreover, the claim that da’wa is non-violent is frivolous. Much of the mission of da’wa is to rationalize terrorism as divinely mandated self-defense.
After thousands of young Americans have laid down their lives to protect the United States from jihadist terror, President Obama apparently seeks to end the war by asking Qaradawi, a jihad-stoking enemy of the United States, to help him strike a deal that will install our Taliban enemies as part of the sharia state we have been building in Afghanistan. If the Hindu report is accurate, the price tag will include the release of Taliban prisoners from Gitmo — an element of the deal Reuters has also reported. The administration will also agree to the lifting of U.N. sanctions against the Taliban, and recognition of the Taliban as a legitimate political party (yes, just like the Muslim Brotherhood!). In return, the Taliban will pretend to forswear violence, to sever ties with al-Qaeda, and to cooperate with the rival Karzai regime.
It would mark one of the most shameful chapters in American history.
