Image: Obama Hugs an Islamic SupremacistTopics: Political News and commentaries
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.Like Daniel Halper says at TWS, this whole scene is pretty standard for President Obama. The Europeans get a handshake and the Islamist Turkish prime minister gets a hug. And all the president seems to have in mind is campaign politics and his reelection effort.
Those of us who have been paying attention to the actual news have been writing and exposing the re-Islamization of Turkey under the devout Erdogan. Erdogan is famous for having said: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers."
And that's not all. In September 2007, Erdogan took specific exception to the term "moderate Islam," saying: "Turkey is not a country where moderate Islam is sovereign. First of all, the 'moderate Islam' concept is wrong. The word 'Islam' is a simple word -- it is only Islam. If you say 'moderate Islam,' then an alternative is created." And after decades of secularism, religious study is now mandatory in Turkish state schools.
Even worse, in that same year, Turkey and Iran formed a military alliance. Yet Obama said this in a speech to the Turkish parliament: "Let me be clear: The United States strongly supports Turkey's bid to become a member of the European Union."
However, let's be perfectly clear what the image tells us. The president of the United States of America, the leader of the free world, just firmly embraced the man responsible for the destruction of secularism and the ummah's return to jihad in Turkey and who has formed a military alliance with Iran, a country whose leader has sworn to destroy Israel and the U.S.
If America is dumb enough to reelect this man for four more years, clearly we deserve the dark fate that awaits us.
