President Barack Obama is now in the Muslim Middle East, so now like him we can use his middle name. What was interesting about his speech at Cairo University today is not so much what he said but the applause of the audience. It wasn’t just the applause that was significant—but the deadly silence at other statements that the president made.
Obama was cheered loudly when he said, “The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It’s time for these settlements to stop.” But the silence was deafening when the president called on the Palestinians to renounce violence. The references to rockets being fired into Israel and old women being blown up on buses was met with absolutely no reaction from the audience. Of course, if the two-state solution will ever be achieved, the Palestinians will have to not only renounce violence but agree to Israel’s right to exist. The audience was clearly not impressed with any suggestion that Muslims need to give up violence against Israel. They did applaud the suggestion that there be a two-state solution, no doubt because after one is created, the Palestinian state will proceed to attempt to rid the world of the Jewish state. If Obama truly believes that his speech did anything to bring about peace in the Middle East, he is clearly delusional.
Ditto for Hussein’s solution for nuclear material that is weapons capable in the Middle East. According to the president, no state should have nuclear weapons so he’ll just get all the countries in the world to give up their weapons and the world, even Israel, will be saved from nuclear annihilation. What an easy solution; it’s surprising that no other American administration has ever come up with that one before!
It’s hard to believe that that the United States of America could have elected a president who thinks that Muslims in the Middle East want to end attacks against Israel in order to achieve a two-state solution. Even the fact that his speech loudly criticized Israel did nothing to make his audience applaud the notion of ending Palestinian violence. It’s hard to believe that the United States of America could have elected a president, who thinks that the solution to Iran’s nuclear threat is to have all countries voluntarily surrender their nukes. After all as Obama said, no country really has the right to tell another country that they can’t have nuclear material. Then again, it is hard to believe that Americans have elected a president to run General Motors and Chrysler.
It would be nice to have been a fly on the wall while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was watching the speech. He must be shaking in his sandals at the thought of how he will be dealt with by the United States.
What is really hard to believe is how someone who has reached the pinnacle that Barack Hussein Obama has reached could still be and so naïve.
It’s a naiveté fed by an ego that Barack Obama alone can change the world; a naivete that the Islamic world gives a damn about what he thinks.
The cult that is Barack Hussein Obama is alive in the Muslim world. Twice the cult cry of “Barack, I love you!” was shouted from the crowd.
Obama must truly envision himself as The Messiah. With his message of Peace and Goodwill to all men, he seemed to step right off the face of a traditional Christmas card in the final points of his 55-minute speech. “We have the power to make the world we seek, but only if we have the courage to make a new beginning, keeping in mind what has been written.”
In his finale, he mentioned the Holy Koran first…“The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’
“The Talmud tells us: `The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace.’
“The Holy Bible tells us, `Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God’.
“The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God’s vision. Now, that must be our work here on Earth. Thank you. And may God’s peace be upon you.”
So has The Messiah spoken.
