An Apocalyptic Movement

This week we had the opportunity to see and hear a real leader.  We Americans have become so accustomed to a feminized administration that to hear a warrior like Benjamin Netanyahu generated enough testosterone in bewildered democrats to cause them to clap and jump to their feet in response to the power of Bibi's presentation.

            Netanyahu is a warrior.  An authentic combat veteran, he fought with Israeli Special Forces and was wounded a couple of times.  He is also smart.  He has degrees from MIT and Harvard and has a long list of political accomplishments.  His speech this week made him only the second leader to speak to Congress three times.  The other was Winston Churchill, another great leader to whom he has been compared.

            Like a petulant child, our "leader" pretended not to hear Netanyahu's historic speech and the "higher ups" in the administration, floundering in estrogen, found reasons to be too busy to attend, including a group of Congressional  liberal lemmings.  Maybe they had to do their nails. And  then we have  "stretch" Pelosi, who rudely turned her back on Netanyahu at one point in his speech.  It makes one wonder if these children will ever grow up.

            This is serious stuff.  Israel is facing the end of its existence if Iran gets a nuclear bomb.  Iran already has the delivery system to reach Israel with their stated objective to wipe Israel off the map  As our only ally in that part of the world, Netanyahu is pleading for our support, but this administration isn't interested in even listening to Israel's leader and continues to insult him.  After all, what's nuclear annihilation when gay marriage is still on the table?

            Obama's insolent attitude toward Netanyahu adds to a perception that Jews are not his favorite people.  He favors the Palestinians, as only one example.  He has already made it clear that America is not a Christian nation, recently blaming Christians for "terrible deeds in the name of Christ."  He had to reach back to the Middle Ages and the Crusades for that one.  This contrasts with his pathetic submission to Iran, his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and his love for the Muslim call to prayer, which sounds to me like the wailings of a man on water pills  locked out of the restroom. 

            Egypt and Jordon's leaders both reacted immediately with military action in response to the beheadings and the burning alive of their citizens.  When our American was beheaded, Obama made a short statement, quickly left the platform, and was back on the golf course before his golf buddies could finish cleaning their cleats.
            Everyone seems bewildered by Obama's refusal to use the words, "Radical Islam." His statement that the terrorists have nothing to do with Islam is irrational.  ISIS and the Islamic State proudly proclaim their identity as Islamic, but Obama denies it, lying to his gullible base.  He's more comfortable with "random rascals." After six years, you don't need to be a particularly astute observer to see a pattern coming into focus.

            Four star Admiral James Lyons, former Commander of the U. S. Pacific Fleet, said,  ". . . the Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated every one of our security agencies."  He states, for example, that John Brennan, Director of the CIA, is a Muslim convert. Obama's mama and closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran and is most likely a Muslim, as are many  others in the Obama administration. Check it out.  

            Lyons goes on to say, "Islam is Islam. There is no such thing as 'radical Islam.'  Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion.  It is anti-American, anti-western, pro-Islamic, pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood."  That sums it up.

            Turkish President Erdogan has said that there is no such thing as moderate Islam.  Listen to this: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers.”  However Muslims who don't go along with the radicals are killed along with Christians and Jews.  

            Although there are competing sects within Islam, they all have a common objective which is to destroy Israel first, then America; to ultimately destroy Western Civilization. It's working.  Europe will be Islamic within a decade or two.  . 

            The main thing to remember is that Islam is a theocracy with an apocalyptic ideology.  Read this sentence again.  This is very important to understand.  If you read my previous post you will see that the extremists are attempting to bring their end time prophesies to fruition through jihad.  Ahmadinejad was very open about this objective. 

            This is an ideological war which is a much different kind of war than we have faced before. Unfortunately, our leaders lack the will to fight, our military has been emasculated, purged of its tough high ranking officers on the alter of political correctness for a kinder, more gentle military, while our "boots on the ground" are constrained by ridiculous rules of engagement.   Meanwhile our brave "Commander-in-Chief" hides behind a tree on a golf fairway.
            One thing we do know - a community organizer like Obama is not a warrior like Netanyahu,  just as a cheerleader is not a football star.  Who voted for the clown with pom-poms when we needed a quarterback?  


  1. Interesting Ralph and no comments yet. This is a tough one to respond to because it indicts our leader and while difficult to disagree with it makes one uncomfortable to deal with that possibility. I enjoyed the thoughtful assessment and fear we are getting closer to the 'end game' as you called it.

    1. I've had problems with links to the blog, but I think I fixed it.
      Yes. It does indict Obama, but it saddens me to see what he is doing to the country. Maybe it's because you and I grew up in the '50s. Remember the "I like Ike" buttons?

    2. I was wondering why my comment never showed up? And I do remember those buttons.

    3. You did everything right, Malcolm. I didn't know how to set up the links to my blog and was having problems with my new computer. I did get your previous comment published after I figured it out. Sorry for the delay.

  2. Very, very well written. Nothing to add, because the article says it all.

    1. A little harsh, but I get carried away sometimes.

  3. His speech was so refreshing! To hear some common sense was amazing. America will certainly pay for the President's reaction to him. God says that He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel.
    I don't think Iran's bomb is for Israel as they want that land. Their bomb is for us!
    I thank God that He is in charge and we know the end of the story. Satan is doing everything he can, though. Of course he always has. In fact, in some ways it is fun to see what is happening as Christ's coming is getting closer and closer.

    1. Israel is definitely the key. Nations have tried to destroy Israel for literally thousands of years, but there it sits...a tiny, but mighty, little country. 1948 was a significant date in history.

  4. Thank you. Well said.
    And, to coin a phrase, Right On.
