Gates Foundation, Carnegie Corporation, New York Times, CDC lending support: Libya Syndrome?
A new campaign issue explodes.
An issue that illustrates exactly the kind of thinking that resulted in the deaths of the American Ambassador to Libya and his colleagues. An issue that shows exactly why a 14-year-old Pakistani girl named Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban — and why the Taliban are now threatening journalists for covering Malala’s plea for educated women.
An issue that now, per a Fox News “Breaking News” report from Wendell Goler as this is written, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Peru saying the buck in all this stops with her. (Note: We suggested this back on September 18 — when we called for the Secretary’s resignation.)
The issue: Funding Sharia .
Then the list of players gets even more interesting.
And last but not least….
Let’s first go to the video, in this case a 39-minute video broken into three pieces and placed on YouTube. And also begin with a hat tip to Ben Barrack, our Texas friend, who brought the original work of Walid and Theodore Shoebat to my attention, launching my own investigation.
The videos are a stunning sight to see.
There on Al Jazeera (now posted in three parts on YouTube here, here, and here) sits one Musa Ismail Obama, the Kenyan cousin of the President of the United States, calmly telling the interviewer in fluent Arabic (English translation gracing the screen) that Barack Obama’s “Granny Sarah” is using the Obama name to raise money to fund Sharia educations.
You read that right.
Sharia (alternately spelled with and without the last “h”), described thusly by the Center for Security Policy (in its study Shariah: The Threat to America — An Exercise in Competitive Analysis) as a “totalitarian socio-political doctrine” and by Conrad Black as “Islam’s totalitarian legal system.” In shorthand, this is the religious doctrine of Islam. Relentlessly demanded by the Muslim Brotherhood and now governing both Iran and Saudi Arabia while closing in on Egypt — Sharia is far more than a religious doctrine. It tells non-Muslims they have three choices:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
