Gingrich: Obama Doesn’t Realize Radical Islam Is at War With US
Newsmax ^ | 14 Sep 2012 10:04 AM | Newsmax Wires

Posted on 09/14/2012 6:41:43 PM PDT by nicmarlo

President Barack Obama is so wedded to his liberal policies that he can’t comprehend the meaning of the attacks against us in Libya and Egypt — radical Islam is at war with us, says former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

The president and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the “senseless” violence, he notes on Politico.

“This concept of ‘senseless violence’ is at the heart of the left’s refusal to confront the reality of radical Islamists,” the former House speaker says. “These are not acts of senseless violence. These are acts of war. . . . It is tragic that the president is so committed to a leftist world view that he cannot allow himself to face these facts.”

The attacks in Libya and Egypt almost certainly were coordinated, Gingrich writes. Yet, “the left is desperate to deal with each new incident as though it is occurring in isolation. . . . Because of congressionally-imposed limitations and administrative and bureaucratic timidity, the fact is we know remarkably little about our enemies.”

The president is much to blame, Gingrich argues. “The policies of Obama have made our intellectual incoherence and strategic incompetence even worse. It is no accident that the embassy in Cairo issued a groveling statement, apologizing to the haters for having inconvenienced them with American freedom of speech.”

The only war Barry is concerned about is his all out war on Republicans.

Barry’s not fit to shine the shoes of a real President.

Obama realizes it, THAT’S the problem. He knows exactly what he is doing. He, along with other far left kooks wants America to be run under Sharia law. Coddling the Muslim Brotherhood knowing what they represent was his plan since the beginning

Yes, he does realize this. As he said, when it really matters he will stand with Islam, and there he stands at this very moment.

Take people at their word. They usually do mean it.

Mostly on Republicans, but, imo, he’s against almost all Americans. He’s snubbed democrats, too. (I don’t recall the names offhand, but business people who are democrats (not the ones who gave him hefty donations, of course.)

He’s a traitor.

Everything that’s going wrong, both domestic and abroad, fits ‘too neatly’ into a planned ruination of America to merely be unplanned, uncoordinated chaos, economic disaster, spontaneous riots.

It’s all they know.

Their “allah” is really Satan.

Think about what “allah” tells them to do.

It’s satanic. Demonic. All of it.

Its worse than that. If Obama is actually not on the Moslem Botherhood’s side, then he’s using them as tool to reduce America influence abroad.

I said a month ago that if Obama feels like he is going to lose the election he will burn this country to the ground. He doesn’t care what happens, if he knows he is going to lose he will go hide in a bunker somewhere while we all burn. He figures that if he is going to lose he mind as well do everything possible to destroy this country with the short time he has left

attacks in two separate countries on the same day which just happened to be 9/11. The two countries also just happened to be the same two countries whose leaders Obama helped overthrow. And we are expected to believe all this is not connected.

Not only was it planned but Obama himself is personally responsible. None of this would have happened if not for Obama and his warped arab spring fantasy.

No such thing as radical Islam. Islam itself is radical, the whole thing.

Islam uses what we in the West used to commonly call “wet” operations, torture, assassination, mutilation to intimidate anyone to the point of submission. Period. THe Muslim Brotherhood, liking to offer the more “moderate” stick of softer cultural, political, educational and financial approaches actually spun off the violent operations such as Al Qaeda. Hezbollab performs all inclusive functions for Shiite Islam. Islam uses a full spectrum of approaches from a smile and a nod to cutting any and all parts of ones body away. It is all inclusive in Islam. The Koran is only 14% of the written Islamic doctrine, 86% is where detailed “wet” operations, slavery are further detailed.

Gingrich, scholar that he is, should not fall for mythological, delusional Western definitions of what Islam is and how it is divided. Islam already does that and sticks to it all. Period. Take Islam at its written word. They do.

Absolutely.

FYI, while driving into work yesterday, a man currently serving in our military called in and stated just months ago, he was stationed at the embassy (in Libya?? maybe Tunis? I can't recall, sorry). He listed off the types of weaponry with which he was armed (as in heavy and lots), and doesn't understand why everyone keeps saying our military was "unarmed".

The host said (paraphrasing), "you served there months ago; these people are so nefarious, Obama could likely have recently issued orders to military now serving at the embassy to be unarmed with the purpose of facilitating such an event we are now witnessing."

The Marine said, 'well, I'm still serving, so I can't say much. But, it wouldn't surprise me if that is the truth."

Good!

It’s important that we make this crystal clear at every opportunity.

It is so easy to prove.

Simply contrast the life and teachings of Jesus with those of the demonic savage Mohammed.

that's the perfect word for Mohammed, he was a savage; also a murderer, thief, rapist, and adulterer. Most likely also demon-possessed.

What 'liberal policies'?! If he's wedded to anything it is his neo-marxist ideology, while we drown in these niceties and euphemisms. Obummer is Marxism 2012, just as Gorbachov was Marxism 1985!

Per other threads recently, the Marines guarding the Embassy were disarmed because the female Ambassador did not like them being armed. It was a local directive, NOT a directive from the WH or State Department.
