- “… jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.” — John Brennon in May 2010
- John Brennon calls Jerusalem (the capital of Israel) by its Arabic name “Al-Quds.”
- John Brennon believes that the fact that 20% of released Guantanamo detainees returns to the battlefield to fight against America is totally fine.
- John Brennon believes that U.S. officials must “cease public Iran-bashing.”
John Brennon: Just another anti-Israel pro-terrorist Obama nominee.
Update: After hearing John Brennon’s comments about violent jihad, there is more disturbing news: Brennon “converted to Islam” in the 1990s. Non-Muslims are not allowed to visited the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina– but according to former FBI agent John Guandolo, “Mr Brennan visited the holy sites during the Hajj season… between 1996 and 1999.” Guandolo referred to a video showing Brennan saying that during his time in Saudi Arabia, he “marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage.” Mr. Guandolo stated that Brennan is “‘unfit’ to take charge of the CIA, and claimed U.S. government officials based in Saudi Arabia during that period ‘were direct witnesses to his growing relationships with individuals who work with the Saudi government and they witnessed his conversion to Islam’.”
As for Obama, he seems quite pleased with his radical Islamic nominee for America’s next CIA director:
America’s enemies can count Obama as a friend. We already knew that Obama supports Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi (who wants to destroy Israel and the U.S.), invited Iranian diplomats to a 4th of July hot dog celebration, hung a Mao Zedong ornament on the White House Christmas tree, and received campaign endorsements from 3 dictators who hate America and its way of life.
So it’s probably unsurprising that Obama rolled out the welcome mat for a Chinese general who threatened nuclear war against America: “A Chinese general who once threatened to use nuclear weapons against hundreds of U.S. cities will visit the Pentagon this week as part of a U.S.-China military exchange program. Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu, who is head of China’s National Defense University, will take part in a “familiarization exchange”… Zhu is best known for inflammatory comments made to two foreign news reporters in 2005 when he said China would use nuclear weapons against the United States in any conflict over Taiwan.”
After encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embracing Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sending $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government, it’s readily apparent that Obama has sacrificed both American and Israeli national security. Morsi has been meeting with Iran’s genocidal President Ahmadinejad, has expressed his desire to “destroy the Jews and their supporters,” and now: “Mohammed Morsi described Jews as ‘descendants of apes and pigs’. The Muslim Brotherhood leader is also reported to have asked Egyptians to ‘nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred’.” Isn’t it amazing that America is going into a downward spiral of debt slavery so that Obama can spend American taxpayer dollars to prop up Morsi’s destructive Egyptian regime?
After the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya on the 9/11 anniversary, Obama was forced to change his campaign speeches by taking out the false claim that al-Qaeda was “on the run.” Subsequently, in January 2013, 30 hostages were killed “when Algerian forces stormed a desert gas plant in a bid to free many dozens of Western and local captives” from Islamic terrorists linked to al-Qaeda. Seven Americans were among the hostages, and three of the dead hostages were Americans. Contrast this to what a real leader– Ronald Reagan– accomplished in regard to the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979:
It turns out that even prior to the Algerian hostage crisis, Obama was lying to the American people when he claimed that al-Qaeda was “on the run”: “The U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan incorrectly reported a decline in Taliban attacks last year, and officials said Tuesday that there was actually no change in the number of attacks on international troops from 2011 to 2012.”
Disturbingly, some of the same Islamic terrorists who took hostages in Algeria also participated in the terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans and destroyed the U.S. Consulate in Libya just a few months beforehand.
Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry has displayed his ignorance for the world to see.
First, he decided to skip Israel on his first trip abroad as Secretary of State, and visit Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qater instead. Then, we found out that he’s scheduling his second dining experience with Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad, who’s brutally killed more than 24,000 Syrian civilians since March 2011.
“Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It’s Congress… He called the budget impasse a threat. The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs. Kerry said legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.” Otherwise, he said his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.”
Update: The oh-so-illustrious John Kerry has already made a ridiculous gaffe: “On the eve of his first trip abroad, John Kerry invented the Central Asian country of “Kyrzakhstan.” He was attempting to praise U.S. diplomats’ work in emerging democracies in the region, and said “they support democratic institutions in Kyrzakhstan and Georgia.””
Update #2: John Kerry just keeps ’em coming! He’s now been quoted expressing “his “hope” that “Iran itself will make its choice to move down the path of a diplomatic solution.” In response to Obama’s “diplomacy” policy, Iran has been ramping up its nuclear program, initiating proxy attacks against Israel, and threatening to kidnap Americans. Iran’s government spokesman announced that Obama’s foolish offer of diplomacy toward Iran shows that America has “failed.” And John Kerry is here to make sure that America keeps failing.
Update #3: John Kerry has made a bizarre ‘defense’ of U.S. 1st Amendment freedom of speech during his European tour: “In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be.” John Kerry is trash talking Americans abroad, and the U.S. Secretary of State doesn’t have a right to be stupid– a mere 1 month into the job, he deserves to be impeached.
We already know that Obama encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embraced Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sent $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government. We also know that Obama attacked Libya and opened a window for radical Islamists to take over the country— which led to the brutal terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya by “militia associated with Al Qaeda.” Some of those same participants subsequently killed American hostages in Algeria.
Recently, Obama nominated an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Secretary of Defense who was endorsed by Iran’s foreign ministry. VP Joe Biden also raised the possibility of direct U.S.-Iran talks, despite the fact that the U.S. has never before agreed to one-on-one talks with Iran’s genocidal and illegitimate regime. Iran is extending its influence in the Middle East, due to Obama’s failed foreign policy– Ahmadinejad recently made the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Tehran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. To top it off, Iran-supported Syria is getting a visit from Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry— where Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad will dine with John Kerry “again” after killing more than 24,000 Syrian civilians.
Frighteningly, Secretary of State John Kerry opened his confirmation hearing by saying “that he will do his best to implement “President Obama’s vision for the world”.”
Obama apparently felt that his lengthy anti-Israel record wasn’t long enough: he has nominated anti-Israel pro-Iran pro-Hezbollah pro-Hamas former Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
- The head of the Anti-Defamation League has this to say about Hagel: “What I find more troubling is, he had sufficient time to distance himself from the ‘Jewish lobby’ quote, to explain, and he hasn’t… He let it stand. I find that more troubling than the original statement. He sees it out there, he sees it being seen as this truly conspiratorial view, that the Jewish lobby controls foreign policy, and there’s no comment.”
- Hagel has called for “direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks with the Government of Iran.” This indicates that he believes the genocidal terrorist regime of Iran, with its leaders in power because of a fraudulent election, is a legitimate “Government.” Hagel has a long record of opposing sanctions on Iran– “he was one of two senators to oppose the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act in 2001.”
- Hagel was “one of only 12 Senators who refused to write the EU asking them to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization.”
- Hagel called for direct talks with Hamas (which is already designated as a terrorist organization by the United States).
- In 1999, Hagel “was the only member of the Senate who refused to sign a letter opposing growing anti-Semitism in Russia.”
- In October 2000, as terrorists attacked Israel during the Second Intifada, Hagel “was one of only 4 Senators who refused to sign a Senate letter in support of Israel.”
Hagel, being a “Republican,” should inflame the opposition of liberal American Jews even more. Yet, Jewish groups are “softening resistance” on the Hagel nomination after the fact. American Jews who support Obama’s bad decisions more than they support the existence of Israel are violating the First Commandment.
Update: “Chuck Hagel said Israel is on its way to becoming an apartheid state during an April 9, 2010, appearance at Rutgers University… Hagel also accused Israel of violating U.N. resolutions, called for U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas to be included in any peace negotiations, and described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “radical”.”
Apparently, Iranian diplomats don’t like hot dogs– Obama’s “diplomacy” strategy against the genocidal/terrorist regime of Iran is officially a complete failure. Not only is Iran ramping up its nuclear program and proxy attacks against Israel, but now Iran is threatening to conduct kidnapping attacks on American diplomats and religious leaders. Obama’s pseudo-intellectual elitist opinion that “talking” to Iran’s radical leaders would solve this U.S./Israel national security threat deserves an “F” grade.
The “Arab Spring” soon revealed itself to be the “Arab Winter” under Obama’s failed foreign policy. As we recall: Obama openly supported Morsi by encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, and then invited the virulently anti-Semitic Morsi (the Muslim Brotherhood’s new leader of Egypt) to meet with him. Now, Morsi has seized “absolute power” in Egypt and is being dubbed the “new pharaoh” by rioters. But Egyptians aren’t the only ones who now live in a more dangerous world: some believe that Egypt has become “the new Iran” constituting a huge threat to both U.S. and Israeli national security.
1 week after Obama got re-elected, Israel was attacked by hundreds of rockets from Gaza. There is a report that at least one rocket was fired from Egypt into Israel– Egypt, which Obama helped turn from a relatively pro-U.S. regime that supported Israel’s efforts to defeat Palestinian terrorists into a Muslim Brotherhood radical Islamist regime that now attacks Israel in an act of war. The Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has even visited Gaza to condemn Israel for defending its borders from these terrorists’ rocket attacks.
We have learned that Iran now “has finished installing nearly 3,000 nuclear-fuel production machines at its underground military facility near the holy city of Qom, providing Tehran the capability to double its production of medium-enriched uranium in the coming months.” So this is the result of Obama’s “diplomacy” and “tough” economic sanctions on Iran: IRAN CONTINUES TO GET CLOSER TO ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. And, how predictable: Palestinian terrorists are currently firing Iranian-made missiles into Israel. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons: you can bet that terrorists around the world will acquire them too.
This photo from Drudge Report says it all:
The only thing between total destruction and the Jewish people– an ancient, long-persecuted religion and culture (which has been the object of repeated attempts at genocide)– is modern military technology: the “Iron Dome,” a device that intercepts the terrorists’ missiles in mid-air.
