Obama Crosses Red Line by Supporting Jihadi Terrorism

Sen. McCain meets with “allies” in Syria: al Qaeda linked terrorists. Man with hand on chest, Mohamed Nour, is an "infamous kidnapper."

By now it should be obvious that whenever the U.S. interferes in another nation’s politics in the name of “human rights,” that that is only a pretext. So it is in Syria, as Obama prepares to plunge America in a war with that nation, and, inevitably, its allies. The United States’ stated reason for intervention, as articulated by John Kerry, is that Syrian President Assad used chemical weapons on the rebels, many of whom are jihadis — including terrorists, rapists, and cannibals – and thus violated their human rights.

Kerry is certainly consistent. Earlier he worried about the “human rights” of Nigeria’s genocidal Islamic terrorists, Boko Haram, while ignoring their victims — thousands of slaughtered Christians and destroyed churches.

And this is the point: when the human rights of others, such as Christian minorities, are being grossly violated — specifically by the Islamists and jihadis that Obama has enabled and empowered, in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere — then there is no U.S. talk of intervention. Indeed, there’s’ hardly any talk at all, sometimes not even perfunctory condemnation. Other times, the White House makes jokes about Muslim persecution of Christians, for example, concerning the recent spate of church attacks in Egypt.

It is therefore unsurprising that Obama is ignoring the fact that there is strong evidence, including from the victims themselves, that gas attacks in Syria are the work of al-Qaeda-linked terrorists. After all, who used chemical weapons on who is irrelevant to the U.S president. Based on pattern and precedent, what matters is apparently finding an excuse to support the jihadis.

In Egypt, for example, after millions of Egyptians, supported by their military, ousted the Muslim Brotherhood — which was violating the human rights of others, especially Christians – the U.S. government, far from simply leaving Egypt to work out its own internal problems, continues interfering, agitating, and threatening on behalf of the Brotherhood.

Thus while Obama claims that Assad crossed the “red line” by reportedly using chemical weapons, it’s well to remember that, in fact, it is Obama who continues crossing red lines, as the Egyptian military quite literally declared, when it recently sent the Pentagon a message saying that Obama’s consistent support for terrorists is “crossing the red line.”

So if Pres. Obama and his Admin. are supporters of terrorists because they don't want to let Syria off the hook for using chemical weapons, than I guess that makes Prime Minister Cameron of England a terrorist supporter as well, right? And how about Pres. Bush who insinuated in a recent interview that he believes Syria should suffer consequences for it's actions. You guys are so Unfair and Vengeful it is really sad. Very sad! Before any kind of great move of God comes to America, the church needs to REPENT of it's lies and slander towards those God has placed in authority over us.
