Fareed Zakaria: "If Obama were elected president, 50 percent of the anti-Americanism in the world would disappear"

 * Make no mistake: Fareed Zakaria is a Muhammedan agit prop just like Hesham Islam in the state department and so many others like him, who work for Islam-intern, who have infiltrated behind enemy lines and who work tirelessly on the Islamization of America and other Western countries.

* From Wikipedia: Zakaria was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. His father, Rafiq Zakaria, was a politician associated with the Indian National Congress and an Islamic scholar. 

Zakaria is doing his thing in the dar-al harb just like Tokyo Rose did in WWII. He sows doubt, he prevaricates, minimizes, equivocates, obfuscates, cheats and lies because he can.  Zakaria is a hardcore jihadist: he does his jihad with a pen and an agenda which is no different from  the one that Tariq Ramadan or any other da’awa doctor uses to advance Islamic causes. His agenda is to make America Islamic. Trouble is, we let him. And he does it legally.

From “Fareed Zakaria GPS [Global Public Square]” at CNN, October 5 (thanks to JW):

“Obama clearly will work a magic in the Islamic world”

Spencer: I predicted this enthusiasm for Obama among Muslims around the world in March 2007: “Given Obama’s politics, it will not be hard to present him internationally as someone who understands Islam and Muslims, and thus will be able to smooth over the hostility between the Islamic world and the West — our first Muslim President.” It is clear from that article — read it for yourself — that by “our first Muslim President” I did not mean that Obama was secretly a Muslim, as a Washington Post “journalist” cravenly misrepresented me as saying, but that his background and politics would make him attractive to Muslims.

Will this enthusiasm translate to anything other than substantial American concessions — perhaps even including “hate speech” laws that outlaw critical discussion of Islamic jihad supremacism?

ZAKARIA: I’m here in Singapore with three very distinguished analysts of international affairs: Kishore Mahbubani, the dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy; Simon Tay, the chairman of the Singapore Institute of International Affairs; and Raja Mohan, who is on loan from India, where he is a columnist for the “Indian Express,” but also here at the Rajaratnam School in Singapore.

Kishore, what I am struck by is coming to Singapore and listening to the usually very hard-nosed Singaporeans, who have tended to be very cool, realistic, and generally prefer Republicans, because they are hard-headed. And I notice that many of you are in something of a swoon over Obama.

You wrote in Newsweek that, if Obama were elected president, 50 percent of the anti-Americanism in the world would disappear.

Why is it that Singapore is Obama-crazy?

KISHORE MAHBUBANI, DEAN, LEE KUAN YEW SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY, SINGAPORE: Well, let me emphasize, not all of Singapore is Obama- crazy. But there are many in Singapore who are actually troubled by the growing divide between America and the world.

And you must remember that Singapore lives in a region where, indeed, Singapore is surrounded by more Muslims than Israel is. Right?

And so, as a consequence of that, we have to put our finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the Islamic world. When it gets angry, it affects us. If it calms down, it’s a better environment for us.

And Obama clearly will work a magic in the Islamic world.

I mean, I was asked by President S.P.Y. to deliver the presidential lecture a few weeks ago.

ZAKARIA: The president of Indonesia.

MAHBUBANI: The president of Indonesia. And he was very clear. And he said, and several other people said that, if Obama – if the Indonesians could vote, 200 million Indonesians would vote for Obama, partly because he will be the first Bahasa-speaking American president.

And also, at the same time, I think he understands, you know. He can connect with the rest of the world in a way that I think McCain cannot. The psychological universe of McCain is a very confined one. The psychological universe of Obama understands the diversity of the world.

And what puzzled me is, there is – not just in Singapore, but when I met a billionaire from India – I can’t mention his name – he said to me, “Kishore, root for Obama. Root for Obama.”

So, there is a magical effect that Obama is having on the rest of the world. And that’s why, frankly, all the polls show – most of them, with some exceptions – the Muslim world for Obama.

ZAKARIA: But the lowest number is in India, Raja.

RAJA MOHAN, COLUMNIST, “THE INDIAN EXPRESS,” AND PROFESSOR, RAJARATNAM SCHOOL OF INTERNATIONAL STUDIES, SINGAPORE: I think in India, I think our heart is with Obama, but our head is with McCain. Our heart is with Obama, because I think Obama represents not only, you know, the American system’s capacity to change, it’s also we’re debating in India, about how do we empower our minorities, how to empower our lower castes.

If Obama can become the U.S. president, there’s also a debate in India that the Dalit leader, Mayawati, can become the next prime minister.

ZAKARIA: She has come from a very lower caste background, yes.

MOHAN: Yes. So, in a sense it’s very positive.

But at the same time, when we look at the issues on trade, I think any day I would take the Republicans. On outsourcing, I would take the Republicans. On immigration, I would take the Republicans.

ZAKARIA: Well, on immigration you’d take McCain, I think it would mean.


ZAKARIA: Because the Republican position, you wouldn’t accept it.

MOHAN: And the problem with the Democrats is that they come with their single-issue groups. Somebody does nonproliferation, somebody does human rights, somebody does workers’ rights. I mean, you have them going around pricking everyone in Asia, without a sense of a coherent vision.

I agree with Kishore. Obama honeymoon will last for six months. But after that, we’re going to have serious problems.

  1. I think Obama will destroy America if elected.
    He will strew your hard earned money around the World so they will love him.
    He will back down in the face of evil
    He has no administrative experience and as far as I can see no policies (that he doesn’t change from day to day)
    He will tax the hell out of you to do so (in his mind *typical white people*)
    He is a racist and has been trying to blackmail people into voting for him on the basis of his skin colour rather than his abilities (if any)
    He doesn’t like America and I can’t see anything in him that I would call American.
    He’s a hard left wing socialist/marxist
    Look at all the gaffes he has made and put them together and there you will see a glimpse of the real Obama, if there is one.
    He is very dangerous to you, your culture, your way of life and your future.
    I cannot vote in your elections as I am British but if I could I would NEVER vote for him.
    You must have some senators or governors who could do better – don’t you???

  2. Muslims hate us and they want Obama to be POTUS.

    That’s all you need to know.

    It is the Muslims’ job to complicate this simple fact.

  3. I agree with you folks – Obama is not a good choice, for many many reasons. And he is very dangerous.

  4. wow…you people are nuts. It is absolutely amazing how easily republicans manipulate and brainwash the ignorant, religious and racist mob that is their constituency. Do you even realize what a messed up thing it is you’re believing in? Barack Obama is not an Arab or a Muslim. But what if he was? Since when did Arab or Muslim become a slur? Fareed Zakaria himself is not even religious, yet you’re falling into the trap of labeling someone based on nothing more than the color of their skin and ethnicity. Your hate fest makes me sick to my guts and I can’t believe people like you still walk this planet as if it were the middle ages.

  5. i agree with TC the last thing we need is another dumb hick in the whitehouse fucking republicans have turned this country to shit and i have a feeling things are going to change now that obama has won the race its just a matter of time before the rest of the world realizes this…
