History 101 Needed for Obama
On the eve of Ramadan President Obama felt he needed to send a special message to Muslims. Will Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists receive the same type of greeting on the eve of their religious holidays? Don't count on it! Apparently our President feels an obligation to give deferential treatment to Muslims - although he was elected to be president of all Americans. But that is not the worst of it.
In his Ramadan message, Obama repeated the fantasy he conveyed to the world in his Cairo speech. He said Islam is "advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings." This is wishful thinking at best - downright prevarication at worst.
Obama is an Ivy League grad. Surely he cannot plead ignorance of history -- the genocide of a million and one-half Christian Armenians by Muslim Turks. Surely he cannot plead ignorance of at least that number of Sudanese Christians massacred by the Arab-Muslim regime in Khartum. This is justice, progress, and tolerance?
Because of Quranic teachings, Islam is by nature intolerant since it is both political and religious at the same time. Ever since Mohammed, Quranic jihad has been practiced to exterminate infidels - and it still is.
Before Obama feels the need to lecture us again about the great virtues of Islam he needs to learn his history lessons - past and present. Without the jihad of radical Islam today, the world would be largely at peace. Perhaps Obama can teach some tolerance to these jihadists.
