Obama Admits Muslims Like His Middle Name

leave a comment »

It’s definitely not an asset when running for United States President to have a name similar to the most reviled terrorist leader in the world, and to have a middle name that is Muslim. But Barack Hussein Obama thinks it’s an asset for Middle East diplomacy to have the perception of being Muslim. It makes him of the guys, one of the Hamas, who Obama plans on sitting down with and having afternoon tea and talking about how to get rid of Israel. He’s so guilty of garnishing Middle East terrorism support that he took President Bush’s excellent speech in Knesset as as personal insult of him, instead of who was being addressed: ex-President, anti-Semitic, Bush-basher Jimmy Carter.

It’s a legitimate attack, because Obama’s kumbaya foreign policy is dangerous. And his name, including the Hussein part, is fair game because Obama has declared it an international advantage.

He can want it both ways, but he can’t have it.

The trouble started when Hamas adviser Ahmed Yousef said, “We like Mr. Obama” and added, “we hope he wins the election.”

That’s an endorsement, plain and simple. When John McCain jumped in, promising to be Hamas’ “worst enemy,” Obama got huffy and accused McCain of “divisive fear-mongering.”

That’s par for the Obama course. Michelle Obama once said anyone using her husband’s full name is throwing the “ultimate fear bomb. When all else fails, be afraid of his name.”

Maybe we should be afraid. Consider what Obama says in an interview in the current Atlantic magazine.

Asked by writer Jeffrey Goldberg if he was “flummoxed” by the Hamas support, Obama responds no and says: “It’s conceivable that there are those in the Arab world who say to themselves, ‘This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so he’s not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy diplomacy as George Bush,’ and that’s something they’re hopeful about.”

Be afraid. Be very afraid of this wolf-in-sheep’s clothing pseudo-saviour, who’s nothing but a friend of our enemies who want to destroy the United States.
