Top Obama advisor John Brennan talks about his love for “al-Quds.”
John Brenna talks about his favorite city “al-Quds” and praises the Middle East for the freedom to practice your faith(?)
“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me that whatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”
Wow, just when I thought these jackass's in the administration not only insults the State of Israel by calling Jerusalem by it's Arabic name (imagine them having the nerve to call Zimbabwe "Rhodesia" without an international scandal), but then goes on to justify the huge revisionist lie that the Arabs welcome all faiths and religions to worship freely!
I'm going to give you a little history lesson. From 1948, until the Six-Day War ended in 1967, not only were Jews forbidden from from worshiping at the Western Wall, the holiest site still standing from the Jewish Temple, they were verboten from entering Jerusalem entirely.
In a addition, anyone who is not a Muslim is also forbidden from entering Mecca and Medina (regardless if you're a Jew, or not). To make matters even more alarming (and racist), Jews are forbidden to even be in Saudi Arabia.
When Israel liberated their ancient homeland in Jerusalem, they did not follow the Arabs example and they truly opened the city to every faith on earth, including Islam. Not only that, but they allowed (and still allow) the Temple Mount, THE holiest site in Judaism, to remain under the care of the Waqf, which is the Islamic religious endowment.
In hindsight, this was, in my opinion, a huge mistake. For it gave the Muslims a belief that Jews do not care enough for their own beliefs to fight for their most sacred soil. Muslims, on the other hand, take their faith and observances far more seriously, and religiously. It is this enormous difference that gives the Muslim such a strong sense of undeserved superiority. Muslims consider Jews and Christians be be generally faithless - which in general terms is not so far off. With the rise of secularism so rampant worldwide, Islam is seemingly filling the religious void left by the secularists in Europe - and doing so in a very rapid rate.
The only reason they have yet to conquer America is precisely because - in spite of President Obama's words to the contrary - we are still a Judeo-Christian nation.
Obama only attends a Church for political gain. If his Church was a larger part of his life, he would never have thrown it under the bus, along with his pastor. True believers do not abandon their beliefs because it's politically harmful In addition, while he has attended a Church service (only one I believe) since moving to Washington, it is clear that here to it's something he has only done for the political benefit.
Secularists like Obama, and a majority of the left, see religion as passe and dangerous. Obama's own words, when he claimed we were no longer a Christian nation portrays a man who believes that secularism is the best way to move forward as a nation. However this is an extremely dangerous notion because it ignores the true underlying reason for Islamic Jihad.
Of course, based on AG Eric Holder's comments this past week, we understand now why he can not identify Islamic Jihad as being the main motivation for the Times square bomber. Holder, and by extension Obama, can not distinguish the main inducement of Islamic Jihad because they can not internally understand religion and it's motivations.
If the Obama people remain in power in this country, we will not be able to fend off the grave threat of Islamic fundamentalism. We already see what it has done to Europe - especially once Great Britain. Obama, Holder, et al, are simply leading us down the path to our own slaughter.
