Useful Idiots for an Islamic Revolution


The image of the lifeless body of American ambassador Chris Stevens in the streets of Benghazi, Libya, should become the new logo of the so-called “Arab Spring;” a multi-state political disaster that Stevens' bosses in the White House have bankrolled and encouraged. The Arab Spring is taking nations in the Middle East into a new dark age of Islamic tyranny that I expect will end in war with Israel.

In May, President Obama said of the Arab Spring, that “after decades of accepting the world as it is in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be,” and it will be “the policy of the United States to promote reform across the region.”

“Reform” has meant replacing what some would call brutal but relatively benign secular dictatorships with unstable, dangerous states under the sway of radical Islam.

During the Cold War, left-wingers who admired or apologized for the Soviet empire were called “useful idiots” for Kremlin propaganda. Unfortunately, it seems that deluded lefties, like the poor, will always be with us. The Obama administration and members of Congress have become useful idiots for a dangerous Islamic revolution.

And throw former President George W. Bush into the bin with this bunch. In May, Bush praised the Arab Spring and said the U.S. shouldn't fear the spread of "freedom." Bush wasted precious lives and treasure on wars based on his Wilsonian folly that “all men want to live in freedom.”

They all most certainly do not want freedom. Some simply want a better standard of living and a flat screen TV. Some want their enemies to die. In the Middle East, many want an Islamic theocracy, which can never be democratic.

I sat in a halal restaurant in a dingy section of Antwerp, Belgium, early this year questioning and being lectured by Islamic radical Foud Belkacem (Belkacem has since been convicted of hate speech and sentenced to prison). Belkacem preached what many critics of Islam get labeled “Islamophobe” for saying: that the Koran and democracy are utterly incompatible, and moderate Muslims who believe in democracy may be celebrated by the West as a wonderful new kind of Muslim, but they are not “true Muslims” according to the Koran.

It would save a lot of American lives if we had a government that understood that the Koran and democracy are incompatible. But in this age of madness, when the world’s superpower is tweeting apologies to the Muslim world for our freedom of speech, that is probably too much to hope for.

# RE: Useful Idiots for an Islamic Revolution

I enjoyed the insightfulness and lack of political correctness in this CBN blog. I am deeply grieved over the loss of our ambassador to Libya , not only because it was a great tragedy, but also an avoidable one if it weren't for the blindness of the Obama administration. I lived in Saudi Arabia for almost three years and I am very familiar with the Wahabi brand of Sunni Islam---absolutely treacherous and untrustworthy. When is our present government going to wake up to the reality of the absolute incompatibility of Islam with not only Christianity, but also Western culture as we know it. Thanks for an insightful article.

Our Lord Jesus Christ's Salvation hates evil/sin as in "Love must be completely sincere. Hate what is evil, hold on to what is good" (Romans 12:9). Persistently, Dictator/War Criminal Barack Hussein Obama keeps FORCING Americans/the world especially Jews/Christians to bow down to evil especially the evil Islam! After all, these evil Muslim terrorists are all imitating the most evil beast of Lucifer, the Arabic Pedophile rapist, robber, slave-owner and mass murderer of the Jews, Mohammed, - who created the Devil's cult, Islam, to defy civilized laws in Christianity and Judaism, especially the Ten Commandments that founded modern civilized Western laws and to justify Mohammed’s evilness. Thus, Lucifer is indeed Islam's god! Further, Islam as the lethal weapon, goes on to be used right now, by the Saudi/Qatar royals-sponsored Muslim Brotherhood (MB) jihadist terrorists, who is intent on GLOBAL Nazi-Hitlerian Ethnic/Cultural Genocide and robbery, whilst torturing and sexually enslaving w

I hope the West will realize soon that Islam has a spiritual demonic power behind it. Only the Church through Christ has that power. Western Christians need to arise and through prayer, fasting and spiritual warfare wage the good fight.

"the world’s superpower is tweeting apologies to the Muslim world for our freedom of speech" Really, Dale? Well your own link links to another site that give the lie to your insinuation -- http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/09/white-house-disavows-cairo-apology-135247.html -- "The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States. 'The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,' an administration official told POLITICO."

Anyway, Dale, what's wrong with stating, as the US Embassy in Cairo did, "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions." Of course, Dale, since you're only pretending to be a journalist, you leave off the "as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions" part wasn't included, right?

"Some simply want a better standard of living and a flat screen TV. Some want their enemies to die." That sounds like most Americans, Dale, in fact, it sounds like most human beings anywhere. But they don't have the same resources that you do with which to foster conditions in which their enemies might die.

It would save a lot of American lives if we had a government that understood that the Koran and democracy are incompatible is not exactly a true statement Dale. What the western world has to understand is the difference between us and them. T.E. Lawrence wrote a book entitled the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" which helps explain the differences in the cultures which if read and followed would help iron out some of the problems the western world has with the Middle East. Unfortunately what was done, is done and will take a great deal of time to undo. But for the present we should stay the hell away from things we know little or nothing about. If only for purely self-serving reasons remember Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates which contains roughly 45% of the worlds known oil reserves are right in the middle of the "Arab Spring" Imagine al-Qaida controlling that oil!

# RE: Useful Idiots for an Islamic Revolution

Dale has it exactly right--these people do not want democracy. They like what their prophet has deemed fit for their life and they will fight tooth and nail if anyone tries to change anything their prophet said or did. There is no room for democracy with this bunch. It is my hope that we either stop this threat (if we ever see it for what it is) or stop alowing American lives to be lost trying to democratize the undemocratizable.

# RE: Useful Idiots for an Islamic Revolution

Obviously this naion should follow the path as directed by bush/cheney, just look at the tremendous progress in Middle Eastern diplomacy and the military victories obtained by these brainiacs. Thanks to that regime the world as well as the USA faces at least 2 to 3 generations of real trouble from that part of the world. when will we learn to stay the hell out of what we know NOTHING about?

miche: The Wahhabi's of Islam are the Haseidic's of Judaism. They are both radicals. As mentioned before, the western people know irtually nothing of the Mid East and their culture. Also remember many of the jews in israel today are not the Hebrews that lived in Palestind for generations, they are pretty much two entirely different people.
