On October 23, 2012, less than two weeks before America’s presidential election, I posted a short blog titled “Obama’s Support”. At the end of that blog I posted this ominous warning:
If Obama is re-elected America and the world will see Islamic terrorist activity skyrocket at warp speed as they become even more emboldened by their secret admirer in the Whitehouse. Remember, Obama is an anti-colonialist who disdains America’s past and only seeks to diminish its future and demolish its strength.
Sadly, that prediction has come true as President Obama has turned his back on Israel and other Mideast allies and has only offered a feeble attempt at stopping the advance of ISIS and other Islamic terrorists throughout the Mideast, northern Africa and elsewhere. Let’s briefly recap what has happened in the short 17 months since his re-election.
- ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) as Obama and his staff like to use, once a rag-tag “JV team” (as Obama referred to them), that was isolated in a small area of Syria prior to the election, has mushroomed into a formidable fighting force of (a CIA estimate) of 31,000. However, estimates by those on the ground in the Mideast estimate that ISIS forces number closer to 200,000. ISIS now has its tenacious terrorist tentacles in at least eight Mideast and North African countries (see map below). They are also known to have their members or sympathizers in Europe and the United States.
President Obama was advised repeatedly by his military advisors at least two years ago to take out the fledgling terrorist group, but he refused.
- Iraq, a victory handed to Obama by former president George W. Bush, has now reverted back to Islamic terrorists—notably ISIS, along with Iranian forces who are fighting against them. Iranian forces are not there to support Iraqi forces but see it as a golden opportunity to take over their historical nemesis, Iraq.
- Hamas, the Islamic terrorist group in the Gaza Strip on the west border of Israel, has been encouraged with Obama’s tactical and financial support of hundreds of millions of dollars (over $400 million per year), to continue to bombard Israel’s citizens with rockets and other terrorist activities daily.
- With tacit support from Obama and his UN representatives, the UN Security Council (a joke) recently declared that Israel—not Iran or other Islamic malcontents—was the number one terror-sponsoring country and that Israel, not the boisterous human rights violating Muslim nations, was the number one violator of women’s rights.
- Obama has thoroughly turned his back on Israel and prefers to support her enemies rather than help Israel maintain her safety and protection.
- Thanks to Obama ignoring the terrorist fires raging through the Middle East and North Africa, other Islamic terrorist groups have now joined ISIS. Al Qaeda, Hamas and Boka Haram (Nigeria) have all pledged their allegiance to ISIS.
- To perhaps impress their new idols, members of Boka Haram recently beheaded 23 people in northeast Nigeria to intimidate voters in the upcoming presidential election.
- In a shocking presidential election, Nigerians elected Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim who believes in the radical Islamic Shari’a law that oppresses people. If Obama had not ignored the Islamic Boka Haram and its continued growth and murderous, raping and kidnapping rampages, perhaps Nigeria would have had a chance to turn the tide on Islamic terrorism.
- In the past two years hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Middle East, as well as (mostly) Sunni Muslims have been slaughtered or driven from their homes.
- Turkey, once an ally of the United States, has turned to radical Islam and stands idly by as ISIS runs amok and brings carnage to northern Iraq and Syria.
- Yemen, once a safe haven on the Arabian Peninsula for U.S. military intelligence, has fallen into the hands of ISIS supporters, with the president of Yemen fleeing the country.
- What few Muslim nations in the Middle East that are still our allies, have now turned against the U.S. because they cannot trust Obama or his team.
- In the last two years the murderous acts of ISIS and other Islamic terrorists have become increasingly more violent and graphic.
- On the home front, Obama’s FBI a little over a month ago declared that it has opened active investigations in 49 of our 50 states on the potential of ISIS cells established therein.
- Despite all this, Obama continues to release Gitmo Islamic terrorists so they can return to the battlefield—wherever that may be.
- And let’s not forget the current “negotiations” with the number one sponsor of Islamic terrorism, Iran, where Obama’s “negotiator”, Secretary of State John Kerry, is doing everything but rolling over and playing dead to appease Iran’s nuclear mullahs. ANY “deal” (which may be unwritten and unverifiable) will not be in the best interest of peace-loving peoples of the earth, and certainly not for Israel and non-nuclear Arab states in the region.
- On our southern border, again, thanks to Obama and his “open borders” policy, our border patrol (what’s left of them) have reported that hundreds of known Islamic terrorists have been crossing the border without apprehension.
For Obama and his team to continue to get away with this treasonous activity, he counts on the American people being Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. Apparently he has pegged way too many U.S. inhabitants accurately. Of course, it does not help that the majority of elected representatives in Congress have failed to hold him accountable for anything.
UPDATE, April 2: Syrian Islamist group, Ahrar al-Sham, executes two Christian men in Syria for violating Islamic law.
UPDATE, April 2: Al-Shabaab, the Somali Islamic terrorist group, attacked Garissa University in Kenya, killing at least 147 and holding captive hundreds of mostly Christian students. Al-Shabaab has attracted dozens of Somali men (mostly from Minnesota) to fight with them.
UPDATE, April 3: United Nations report revealed that over 25,000 people from 100 nations, including many Americans, have joined ISIS; up 71% from last year.
UPDATE, April 3: Yesterday, two American women that are known ISIS supporters were arrested in New York City on an attempted bombing plot.
UPDATE, April 6: Yemen, Obama’s claimed success story of counter-terrorism, is now in utter chaos as al Qaeda re-emerges stronger than ever and taking control of western Yemen along the strait that connects the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. This is the shipping lane where much of the oil of Saudi Arabia is shipped. Al Qaeda is also now offering support to al Shabaab in Somalia and Kenya.
