    During his address to the United Nation's General Assembly yesterday, President Obama repeatedly made it a point to stress how Islam is a religion of peace. In making his case, Obama cited Sheikh bin Bayyah as a moderate. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them, there is only us -- because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.
  • Obama's U.N. Rallying Cry: World Must Dismantle ISIS 'Network of Death'

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday sought to rally the world and especially Muslim countries to join the American fight against ISIS militants — a “network of death” that he said must be destroyed. Speaking at the United Nations, two days after the United States escalated its campaign against the militants with a barrage of airstrikes in Syria, Obama called on countries to counter the extremism and sectarian conflict that allow terrorism to flourish. “No God condones this terror,” he told the General Assembly in New York. “No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning — no negotiation —...

    Andrea Mitchell on Friday landed an exclusive interview with Chicago slumlord Valerie Jarrett to discuss terrorist threats against the United States, as well as the resignation of her close friend Attorney General Eric Holder. It was a very enlightening interview. “I have nothing new to report,” Jarrett said when asked about reported threats to U.S. subway systems. Mitchell asked about President Obama’s speech at the United Nations earlier this week. It was a very important speech, Jarrett said. “It was a very strong, powerful speech,” she said. “It was a very constructive and important week, and the speech sent a...
  • Obama Praised Muslim Cleric who Endorsed Fatwa Against American Troops

    During his United Nations address, President Barack Obama went out of his way to heap praise on a particular Muslim cleric. The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day. Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies – Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” A fine sentiment, but one that Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah probably does not mean in the way that Obama thinks...
  • Obama Brings Ferguson to World Stage: 'We Have Our Own Racial and Ethnic Tensions'

    (CNSNews.com) - "We have our own racial and ethnic tensions," President Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, pointing the "the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri." He made the comments toward the end of a speech in which he urged the world to reject sectarianism, extremism, and violence. "I realize that America's critics will be quick to point out that at times we, too, have failed to live up to our ideals. America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true. "With a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe,...

    “Russia’s actions in Ukraine challenge [the] postwar order,” he said. That was not what the Russians wanted to hear from the president. Moscow’s U.N. ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, sank deep in his chair, and its foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, looked on stony-faced. “Russia poured arms into Eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands,” Obama said. “When Ukraine started to reassert control over its territory, Russia gave up the pretense of merely supporting the separatists and moved troops across the border.” The president was not finished. “This is a vision of the world in which might makes...

    “Second, it is time for the world – especially Muslim communities – to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL.” As if they knew he would say this today (did they?), an international group of Muslim scholars today issued a purported refutation of the Islamic State’s understanding of Islam. Unfortunately, it is yet another farrago of detours, deceptions, half-truths and outright falsehoods. Will Muslim communities ever really reject the ideology of al Qaeda and the Islamic State? They haven’t yet in any way that would make even one jihadist lay down his arms and become...

    President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace, between disorder and...
  • Cheney: ‘Stunned’ over Obama comparison between Mideast, Ferguson unrest

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he was “stunned” that President Obama appeared to compare the unrest in the Middle East to the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., during his United Nations speech. Cheney, speaking with Fox News on Wednesday, said it’s “outrageous” to suggest a “moral equivalence” between the two situations. “I was stunned. I mean, in one case, you've got a police officer involved in a shooting. There may be questions about it. They'll be sorted out through the legal process. There's no comparison to that with what ISIS is doing to thousands of people throughout the Middle East,...

    Americans donÂ’t generally eat mushy peas, a staple of British fish and chip shops. But US foreign policy under Barack Obama certainly resembles it. The presidentÂ’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday was as soggy as it gets, with Mr. Obama extending the hand of friendship to IranÂ’s new president Hassan Rouhani. In his UN address, President Obama was eager to recycle the propaganda flowing out of Tehran in recent weeks, with the White House making a rapprochement with Iran the centerpiece of its Middle East strategy. In ObamaÂ’s words: The Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa...

    Obama to Kerry: Get Iran deal By Justin Sink - 09/24/13 10:50 AM ET President Obama is directing Secretary of State John Kerry to pursue a nuclear weapons deal with Iran, the president announced in a speech Tuesday to the United Nations. Recent statements by Iran’s new government indicate it is not interested in a nuclear weapons program “should offer the basis for a meaningful agreement,” Obama told the gathering at the UN general assembly. He said he “firmly” believed the “diplomatic path must be tested.” “If we can resolve the issue of Iran's nuclear program, that can serve as...

In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message...

    In an address to the United Nations General Assembly today, President Barack Obama dedicated several long passages to discussing and condemning what the New York Times has described as a 14-minute "amateurish video" that a 55-year-old Southern California man posted on YouTube in June. Obama also told the United Nations that with modern technology efforts to control the flow of information have become “obsolete.” The Obama administration had originally suggested that the video in question—which the New York Times said was a trailer for a movie entitled “The Innocence of Muslims”—may have been responsible for inspiring a mob to attack...

    Mr. President, Mr. Secretary-General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman: I would like to begin today by telling you about an American named Chris Stevens. Chris was born in a town called Grass Valley, California, the son of a lawyer and a musician. As a young man, Chris joined the Peace Corps, and taught English in Morocco. He came to love and respect the people of North Africa and the Middle East, and he would carry that commitment throughout his life. As a diplomat, he worked from Egypt to Syria; from Saudi Arabia to Libya. He was known for walking the...

    In a speech at the United Nations this morning, President Obama says the attacks on America across the Muslim world over the last two weeks are also an "assault on the very ideals upon which the United Nations was founded." "The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America," Obama stated, according to a prepared transcript of his remarks. "We are grateful for the assistance we received from the Libyan government and the Libyan people. And there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. I also...

    Twitchy headline says it all.Context provided by Erick Erickson at Red State: In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Pay careful attention to what he says: "The future...
