Given Barack Obama's recent dissing of Israel's prime minister at the G20 summit, this image of Obama firmly embracing Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the venomously anti-Israel Islamic supremacist prime minister who is destroying Kemalist secularism and turning Turkey back into an Islamic state ... is certainly not only no surprise but also makes clear his own degree of antisemitism and affinity for Islamism:
As Pamela Geller notes:
Consider who Obama chose to hug. Turkey, under Erdogan, has abandoned the separation of mosque and state, abandoned Ataturk, abandoned its ties with Israel and increasingly pursues the delusion of a return of the Ottoman Empire. (continue reading)
It's not just Obama who has no shame when submitting to Islamists. Sen. Bill Nelson is one of the latest:
A top activist tied to one of the most notorious Islamist political organizations (CAIR) co-hosted a re-election fundraiser last month for U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.
Details about the Florida Democrat's Oct. 22 fundraiser in Ocala are sparse —limited mostly to what Ahmed Bedier, former Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Tampa director, posted on his Facebook page. He published a series of pictures under the heading "Hosting Senator Bill Nelson." Those pictures showed Nelson, microphone in hand, addressing supporters as Bedier stood just behind him. The fundraiser was held in the home of a doctor named Manal Fakhoury.
Bedier remains closely tied to CAIR, a group linked to a Hamas-support network by evidence in the federal prosecution of a Texas-based Hamas charity called the Holy Land Foundation. Exhibits showed that CAIR was created as an arm of the "Palestine Committee, created to help Hamas politically and financially. (continue at The Investigative Project on Terrorism)
It’s Official: Obama Administration Promotes Islamist Regimes; Insists They are Moderate, By Barry Rubin
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech justifying Obama Administration Middle East policy changes everything. True, it isn’t surprising. I’ve been writing for almost three years about how the current U.S. government thinks these things.
Do not underestimate this speech's importance. It isn't a reluctant acceptance that Islamists might win elections and take over coutries. It is an enthusiastic endorsement of that idea.
But now there can be no doubt that Obama’s Middle East policy is engaged in what might be the biggest blunder in the history of U.S. foreign policy. Millions of people will bemoan it as delivering their countries into the grip of repressive dictatorships.
The speech can be summarized as follows:
Islamist regimes—at least those whose “behavior” is proper--are good. If Islamists exercise political power they will be moderate. Thus, the United States will not merely tolerate but will actually support Islamists taking power.
The Obama Administration is now on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizballah, and the Taliban (“moderate” wing). It is the equivalent of an American government telling you that Communism and fascism are no threat because they can be tamed by participating in elections and being in power.
Thus, the Obama Administration has openly sided with Israel’s enemies. I don’t mean the Palestinian Authority (PA) or Saudi Arabia. That would be tolerable. We’re talking here about openly genocidal, antisemitic groups. (continue at Pajamas Media)
We knew where Obama stood, he makes no efforts to hide his hatred of Israel, America, and his love of Islamists.
