Rumsfeld Tells Rush: Radical Islamists Intend to ‘Create a Caliphate’

Posted on February 8, 2011 

(via DailyRushbo)

“We are up against a vicious enemy, the radical Islamists are there, they intend to try to create a Caliphate in this world and fundamentally alter the nature of nation states, and we’re reluctant to engage in the competition of ideas and point out what they really are and how vicious they are. This current administration is even afraid to say the word Islamist. And we need to fight. We need to be willing to say what it is and be willing to tackle it.”

Gallup: American Public Becoming Extremely Dissatisfied

Nearly 7 out of 10 Americans say they are dissatisfied

They say Comrade Obama got caught with his pants down on Egypt; he should have seen that the country was ready to blow. You could say the same about another country I know…

Nearly 7 out of 10 Americans say they are dissatisfied with the size and power of the federal government and with nation's moral and ethical climate, says the Gallup Poll.

Fortunately, despite the disastrous consequences in 2008, we are still able to believe in our electoral system, so revolution here needn't feature violence in the streets.

However, our rogue government is so far out of control, people are losing faith. In January 2002, 76% were satisfied with our system of government and how well it works. That has dropped like a rock to an alarming 42%.

In addition to grotesquely inflating the size and power of the federal government, liberals have used their control of the media to poison our culture. People don't like it:

The greatest public dissatisfaction … is with the moral and ethical climate of the country. Today, 69 percent of Americans say they are dissatisfied with that climate, while 30 percent say they are satisfied.

Glenn Beck, Bill Kristol, and the Unholy Alliance of Radical Islam and the American Left

Posted on February 8 2011
by David Horowitz

Bill Kristol is entitled to his optimism about democratic revolutions in the Islamic world. Perhaps the elections in Egypt will turn out better than those in Gaza where Hamas now rules a terrorist state; Iraq, which has instituted an Islamic Republic; Lebanon, where Hezbollah now rules a terrorist state; and Afghanistan, which is a kleptocracy wooing the terrorist theocracy in Iran. What he should not be doing as a conservative leader is demonizing Glenn Beck, who has done more to educate Americans about the unholy alliance between the secular left and the Islamic jihadists than anyone else. Kristol needs to apologize to Beck for comparing him — outrageously — to the conspiracist Robert Welch, and should be embarrassed by his own ignorance of the agendas of both American radicals and their jihadist allies. At this point in time, such ignorance is not only inexcusable but dangerous.

Bill Kristol, Stand for Truth
By Pamela Geller

Bill Kristol has opened the French doors of his ivory tower, stepped out and deigned to address the great unwashed conservative quarter. High above the people and reality, he admonishes those on the right for not embracing the catastrophic events unfolding in the Middle East.

In his opinion piece, Stand for Freedom, he dismisses or summarily denies the concrete facts on the ground. Of course, we all want freedom. Of course, we support voices yearning to be free. We fought for and believed The Bush Doctrine, and still do. But there is far more at work here, as evidenced by the fierce behind-the-scenes jockeying and arm-twisting by the on-the-ascent Muslim Brotherhood, an organization created after the fall of the Ottoman Empire for the purpose of restoring the rule of political Islam.

The Brotherhood Amongst Us

Wherever Muslims go, the Brotherhood will follow. It has now even infiltrated many non-Muslim countries, including the U.S. and even our government.

Posted by Nonie Darwish on Feb 8th, 2011

The Muslim Brotherhood has long been a major political force in the Muslim world. Its power comes from a deep conviction among Muslims in general that its ideology represents true Islam and that it is the front line of defense of Islam and its protection from any novelty or change. As a matter of fact, there is a law in Sharia that entrusts the Muslim head of state with just that: protecting Islam from any “bidaa” — meaning novelty. Many Muslims in the West defend not only the Brotherhood but also many of its affiliates such as Hamas, and place them in high regard. To many Muslims, criticizing the Brotherhood is equivalent to attacking Islam itself. Thus, the Brotherhood has been a major force in bringing down regimes and installing new governments, and whether we like it or not they will play a significant role in any administration, whether it is openly Islamic or nominally secular.

Wherever Muslims go, the Brotherhood will follow. It has now even infiltrated many non-Muslim countries, including the U.S. and even our government. As a fellow Egyptian, I have no doubt that the head-covered, Egyptian-born White House advisor Dalia Mogahed is herself a Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas sympathizer and Sharia defender. She helped write president Obama’s Cairo speech, which was geared to appease and legitimize the Brotherhood, the very organization that inspired Al-Qaeda that attacked America on 9/11. Obama believed that he would be the hero who will make the Muslim world love us, but he ended up only empowering the Brotherhood against both Arab reformists and Western interests.  Read More

Egypt: a Foreign Policy Failure

The Obama administration is in way over its head.

Posted by Stephen Brown on Feb 8th, 2011

As predicted, President Barack Obama’s attempt last week to oust Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak from power failed miserably after he ran into a steel wall of opposition from the Egyptian president and his generals. Ignoring the pressure to resign, Mubarak showed Obama he will be the one who decides when he steps down and that he has the Egyptian military’s support in doing so. The White House’s plan to force Mubarak’s immediate departure not only exhibited an embarrassing lack of knowledge concerning Egyptian society and the danger a hasty coup would pose to Egypt’s fragile stability, but also that long-time American allies cannot rely on the Obama administration when in difficulty. This latest policy setback indicates, as has long been suspected, that in the area of foreign affairs, the Obama administration is in way over its head.

Perhaps the largest misstep in the failed attempt to get Mubarak out was made by Obama himself. In an obvious misreading of the political situation and of Mubarak’s character, President Obama intervened personally in Egyptian internal affairs with a hasty, 30-minute phone call to Mubarak last Tuesday evening after the Egyptian president said in a speech to the nation he would not seek re-election in September. The speech met with a mixed reception, but managed to garner sympathy among segments of the population, a development the White House had obviously not even considered.  Read More
