Islam Greetings BEFORE Islamic Gunman?
IslamRising: Special feature to the Calling Out Community,
Posted July 19, 2015.
I’m rarely speechless, but sometime press releases and other news items bleed out of the Barak Hussein “I’m Not A Muslim” Obama White House that are so absolutely idiotic and more often than not, unbelievably one-sided, partisan, ideological crap as well, that I just can’t shut up about. It’s even more infuriating, however, when these same clearly partisan messages are not reported as such by our Western media, if they are even mentioned at all.
On July 16, 2015, a gunman opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing four service members immediately. Two other service members and a police officer were wounded, with one of the servicemen dying from his injuries two days later.
The gunman, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, a militant Islamist, was killed by police at the site of the second shooting. Of course Western media have been running the story for days that the poor little victim of depression was just misunderstood. If you want to get into the mind of this whack job, he had a blog, which for reasons I don’t understand is still being hosted by WordPress.
(Footnote: WordPress is the same group that restricted my own blog content for 24 hours, forcing me to censor some selected text on 1 Blog posting out of nearly 50 now in various stages of publication. My crime was naming the a coward who had been posting vile, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, pro-gay rhetoric and harassing me non-stop through my blog. My free speech, my ability to defend myself against a vicious character assassination, was completely dismissed. Yes these same “professionals” have no problems maintaining the blog of an Islamic terrorist serial killer. Good job WordPress, I’m sure you are proud – but you DISGUST me)
Later that afternoon, in an outrageous display of tactlessness and bad timing, Obama sent a celebratory message to Muslims around the world on the White House Twitter account at 4:48 P.M, celebrating the end of Ramadan, and a happy Eid Mubarak.
However, it wasn’t until 6:08 P.M., nearly 7 hours later, that the White House tweeted a video message from Obama entitled a “heartbreaking circumstance.” Unbelievable that the words “terrorist”, “terrorism” and “Islamic” were never mentioned. Others might certainly have called this specific incident “a terrorist attack.”
According to a CNN report on the day of the shooting:
The shooting suspect was armed with an AK-47 style weapon at the time of the attack, according to two law enforcement officials. The incident is being investigated by the FBI terrorism task force. (emphasis ours)
The president has been criticized this week for a number of insensitive moves regarding the deaths and captivity of Americans. Earlier this week, Obama remained silent on the July 1 murder of Kate Steinle, killed by a previously deported illegal alien, as reported by Breitbart News’ Alex Swoyer. After all, it was under Obama’s administration, 36,007 illegal immigrants (2013) who had criminal convictions were released from prison, and 1,000 of those re-offended. 30,558 illegal immigrants were released in 2014. Obama had no problem talking about Michael Brown, however, within three days of his death,
Katie Steinle was also the same woman that Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), was stupidly referring to by saying her death was a “little thing”. Kate Steinle was murdered at the hands of a hardened criminal and five-time deportee, in the sanctuary city of San Francisco.
That same day, Breitbart News’ Jeff Poor reported about the president’s chastisement of CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett, when he questioned Obama about the negotiations with Iran that left four Americans in captivity in the wake of his nuclear arms agreement:
For months now, various groups had demanded that the U.S. bring home pastor Saeed Abedini, an American citizen, who was sentenced to eight years in prison on January 27, 2013, reportedly on charges of undermining national security through private religious gatherings in Christian homes in Iran in the early 2000s. In November 2013, the Iranian government transferred Abedini to Rajai Shahr prison, just outside of Karaj, Iran. Since his sentencing, he’s been told that he would have years added to his sentence unless he renounced Christianity. Obama looked Pastor Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh and their two young children, in the eye and promised them that securing Pastor Saeed’s release from an Iranian prison was a “top priority.” Donald Trump was quoted on December 11, 2013, after meeting Pastor Abedini’s wife in New York:
“Our country is being run down into the tubes. We are a laughingstock throughout the world,” he said. “Think of the power that this country once had — and now we can’t even get a Christian pastor out of a jail.”
- Amir Hekmati is an American citizen, and a Marine veteran currently imprisoned in Iran for over 3.5 years – making his the longest imprisonment of any American in Iranian history, including the Iran hostages released in 1981. The Iranian-American was born in Arizona but held dual citizenship when he flew to Iran to visit his dying grandmother. Hekmati was arrested and charged with spying for the United States government. He was sentenced to death, but that sentence was reversed. Hekmati was then convicted of a lesser charge and sentenced to 10 years in prison. As a Marine, he served honorably during Operation Iraqi Freedom and was awarded the following decorations: Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terror Service Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, GWOT Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Combat Action Ribbon. In recent months his father has become very ill and is dying. This American hero MUST be returned home.
- Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian, who is an American-Iranian journalist currently employed as The Washington Post bureau chief in Tehran, Iran. On July 22, 2014, Iranian authorities raided the Tehran residence of Rezaian and his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, and took the couple into custody. Salehi was released on October 6, but Rezaian remains in custody at Evin Prison, a detention center in Tehran known for housing political prisoners and intellectuals. After nine months of speculation, it was made public on April 20, 2015 that Iranian authorities have indicted Rezaian on four charges, including espionage and “propaganda against the establishment.” Rezaian’s trial began on May 26, 2015.
- Retired FBI agent Robert Levinson vanished after traveling to the Iranian island of Kish in March 2007. In December 2011l, video evidence he was still alive sprang up, held captive there. He is now one of the longest-held U.S. citizens in history. On March 9, the 8th anniversary of his disappearance – and the day before his 67th birthday, the FBI announced has increased its reward for information on Mr. Levinson from $1 million to $5 million
The lesson of this story? By all means, no matter how obvious it is that we have a serious problem with the Islamic jihadists in North America and around the world, this Obama administration isn’t going to even speak their names, nor ever call them what they truly are. It fears saying the name of its worst enemy – very similar to how the characters in the Harry Potter series of books/movies never spoke the evil wizard Valdemorte, for fear of conjuring him. Though perhaps Beetlejuice is more reflective of the type of enemy we are actually facing here. Ignoring their existence and not fighting against them is in every sense aiding and abedding the enemy.
Also, if you’re an American that is arrested and/or detained aboard, you can have every confidence that your government – won’t give a damn, won’t lift a finger, won’t acknowledge you are still needing help. Especially if you’re a Christian pastor.
