Melanie Phillips: The Hand Of Appeasement

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Sir Winston Churchill  British politician (1874 – 1965)

* Newsflash: the result of appeasement: MUSLIM PIRATES HIJACK AMERICANS

Pamela: Don’t look for a Thomas Jefferson response to these pirates. 


6a00d8341c60bf53ef01156f0e4ce3970c-500wiComfy with headbangers: we are not only allowing  Muslims to dictate our foreign policy, we allow them to dominate every agenda.

*  Obama ends Europe trip with tour of mosque

An aghast Amil Imani, an Iranian who always tells it how it is, registers his profound shock at Obama’s appeasement of the Iranian regime:

Mr. President, the Iranian people do not recognize the Islamic Republic as a country, but call these terrorists occupiers who must leave Iran or to be crushed decisively by hook or by crook. President Obama, what is it that you do not understand? Why is it so difficult for you to comprehend that the Islamic regime is a terrorist entity and the Iranian nation is fed up with them? Nothing less than an overthrow of this bloodthirsty regime is acceptable to millions of Iranians.

…We simply ask you stop appeasing the Islamists all over the world and given them legitimacy… Mr. President, ‘Change, Yes We Can’ was not about changing America to Socialism, Communism or Marxism and appeasement or softening your tone about the Taliban or Muslim extremists. It was not about emptying out our treasury department and writing hot checks as though it belongs to you. Only a person who has no allegiance to the United States constitution would terrorize Americans with anti-American agendas, one after another, and create fear in the hearts of the American people.

Alas, it was only too plain from the moment Obama burst upon the scene that all of this was precisely his agenda. Imani continues:

President Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday ‘The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical … in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.’

Mr. President, first and foremost, you made a fool out of yourself again. Your ill-advised coziness with the Muslim nations will bring down our nation faster than any foreign enemy. America has never been at war with Islam.*  On the contrary, it is Islam that has waged a war with the infidels and wants to conquer the world.

And with Obama in the White House, it has its best chance yet of doing so.

It is indeed beyond amazing that a President of the United States can behave with such an embarrassing ignorance of history (the latest such absurdity was that he thinks Islam has helped shape America; as Robert Spencer writes, this is an utter delusion), adolescent naivety (how North Korea and Iran must be splitting their sides at a Commander-in-Chief who thinks if America Bans its own Bomb, they and every other rogue state will follows suit), disloyalty towards his own country (for which he never stops apologising); and suicidal idiocy in grovelling to its enemies.

But then it is beyond amazing that such a man could ever have been elected President in the first place.


*    “America has never been at war with Islam”  is incorrect. America’s first war was with Islam, against the “Algeriennes”, otherwise known as the Barbary wars.

One cannot get around what Jefferson heard when he went with John Adams to wait upon Tripoli’s ambassador to London in March 1785.

When they inquired by what right the Barbary states preyed upon American shipping, enslaving both crews and passengers, America’s two foremost envoys were informed that “it was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” (It is worth noting that the United States played no part in the Crusades, or in the Catholic reconquista of Andalusia.)
