Obama, Friend of Shariah?Topics: Egypt, Political News and commentaries
Frank Gaffney suggests today at Center for Security Policy that Barack Obama is indeed a "Friend of Shariah":
Like ordinary folks, presidents of the United States are known by the company they keep. It is a test of their character. Often it shapes their policies. And, in the case of Barack Obama, it may blight his legacy and our nation's security interests.As disturbing as Gaffney's charge is at this point, even more disturbing is the relationship between a Virginia Military Institute project and a transnationalist program funded by the Defense Department and known as "Project GO," (GO stands for "Global Officers") ... administered for the Pentagon by the Institute for International Education, advised by "dedicated internationalists" from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and, as it happens, the Chinese Communist Politburo - which is only one of several manifestations of what Gaffney sees to be a deeply worrying trend involving acquiescence to and, in some cases it appears, outright embrace of the dictates of shariah under the Obama administration.
Until now, one of the most egregious examples of the problem were the "Friends of Bill" who played prominent roles in William Jefferson Clinton's presidency. Those folks included a mix of unsavory political operatives, Chinese agents and convicted felons. [Their overnight stays in the Lincoln bedroom, legally challenged fundraising and eleventh-hour pardons raised serious questions not just about President Clinton's ethics, but his judgment.]
President Obama's trusted circle has been, if anything, even more problematic. For example, Mr. Obama has consorted with people who are revolutionaries, communists, liberation theologians and Islamists. Some have even been appointed "czars" in his administration.
At the moment, though, we must be concerned not only with who Barack Obama considers his friends, but with those who deem him to be one of theirs: The record suggests he must be seen as a "Friend of Shariah."
How else can we explain the seeming inconsistency between, on the one hand, the president's indifference to demonstrations in Iran last year that were vastly larger and more sustained than those to date in Egypt, and, on the other, his insistence after a week's worth of protests in the latter that there be nothing less than complete "regime change," starting immediately?
