A story hit some news outlets a couple of years ago that few Americans took note of…according to Channel 2 Action News (Washington, D.C.) the State Department sent millions of dollars (that’s right MILLIONS) to save mosques overseas.
The State Dept. was quite proud of its work, displaying before and after photos of the refurbished mosques.
As of late, there’s been no proof that this program has ended…
Apparently, the President didn’t need Valentine’s Day to passionately blow kisses to his favorite creed, Islam.
And, he didn’t show his love from his own wallet. He did it with YOUR tax dollars.
This was Obama’s attempt to make nice in a feckless attempt to fight Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders. The mistake here is: The Middle East mindset views compromise/appeasement (helping rebuild mosques) as weakness to be subjugated.
Past guest on my radio show, former Egyptian Muslim, human rights activist and author Nonie Darwish confirms this conclusion:
This part of the world has a lot of respect for power and America is not showing its power, it’s showing its appeasement. They are laughing all the way to the bank…We are rebuilding mosques to support the radicals, not to support the moderates. We are building mosques to issue Fatwas of death against people like me.
As I quoted Gavin Boby in my latest article:
A mosque is not merely a place of worship. Islamic doctrine requires the application of Islamic law within its geographical reach…Islamic law claims supremacy over the conduct of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It mandates violence against those who resist it.
And as Turkey’s PM Erdogan has stated unequivocally: “Mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers.”
Now, since Obama is all about “fairness” and “fair shares”, surely his compassion doesn’t end with Muslims and their mosques, right?
Let’s take a look:
— To aid the Christian militia fighting ISIS’ genocide against them? Monies allotted by this President: Zero.
— Arms to the Kurds fighting ISIS, as they protect their families and Iraqi Christians seeking refuge from ISIS in Northern Iraq? Monies allotted by this President: Zero.
But, by all means, he makes sure to renovate and bring allure and comfort to Islamic places of worship…where ISIS and their supporters renew their hate of non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians…and plot their destruction.
I believe it was Sun Tzu who once recommended equipping your enemy to kill you…or was that Quisling?
Funding Mosque renovation is a suicidal endeavor. Mosques contain hate because they contain the Quran. If we are in any way making the spread of the contents of that book possible, we are complicit in the acts committed out of that venue.
And that’s not fighting Islamic terrorism…that’s making it more possible.
Shalom through strength…
