Report: Biden Referred To “Right-Wing Militias and Supremacist Groups that are Violent in the name of the Bible” At CVE Summit

It was feared (dreaded really) that the Obama Regime would attempt to morally equivocate between the rampant and horrific Islamic terrorism that is happening throughout the world today,  and nonexistent “Christian terrorism”  at the “Countering Violent Extremism Summit, this week.”  On day one, Biden (apparently) did not disappoint.

This White House is determined to knock us Christians off our high horses.

Via CNS, who notes that the comments did not come during Biden’s 19 minute-long opening remarks – but at some other point during the panel discussion.

A U.S. Islamic advocacy group says that Vice- President Joe Biden, addressing a White House summit on “countering violent extremism (CVE)” on Tuesday, referred to right-wing extremists and supremacists committing violence “in the name of the Bible.”

“Biden just talked about the right wing militias & supremacist groups that are violent in the name of the Bible,” the Washington-based Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) tweeted later in the afternoon.

Obama Admin Discouraging Egyptian Airstrikes Against ISIS in Libya – Prefers “Political Solution”

One of the bright spots in the Middle East right now is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who in an important speech on January 1, called for religious reformation of the Muslim faith.

“The corpus of texts and ideas that we have made sacred over the years, to the point that departing from them has become almost impossible, is antagonizing the entire world, al Sisis said. You cannot feel it if you remain trapped within this mindset. You must step outside yourselves and reflect on it from a more enlightened perspective.”

 

So we have a strong potential ally in al Sisi, launching a military operation against (one would think) our common enemy ISIS/Daesh in Libya to avenge the deaths of 21 Egyptians who were not Muslims – but Coptic Christians. You would think that the United States would be embracing this important ally in the war against Islamic Terror.

But you would (of course) be wrong. CNS News Reported, via Weasel Zippers:

The United States does not support Egyptian and Emirati airstrikes against Islamist militias in Libya because the U.S. believes the crisis in Libya must be resolved politically and without outside interference, a Department of Defense spokesman said Tuesday.

Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) carrying out airstrikes in Libya was different from U.S. airstrikes against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant forces in Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby told a briefing, because the U.S. was acting in Iraq, in a “very targeted” manner, at the request of its government.

“This wasn’t some unilateral decision by the United States to strike targets inside Iraq.”

“We discourage other nations from taking a part in Libya’s issues through violence,” Kirby said. “We want the issues solved in Libya to be done peacefully and through good governance and politics and not violence.”

Libya’s “issues” of course have become Egypt’s issues in the form of 21 decapitated Egyptian heads.

Now we know why Obama Refused to Help Egypt With Intelligence on ISIS Targets. Also, it does seem likely now (as was speculated yesterday) that Egypt launched the airstrikes without the US government’s knowledge.

My God. How much lower can this administration get?

Hannity Interviews Jordan Matson, Christian U.S. Vet Fighting With Kurds to Defeat ISIS

Remember Jordan Matson? The Christian vet came across my radar screen, last October, soon after he joined the Kurds to fight ISIS in Northeastern Syria. Since then, hundreds of US military vets have flowed into the Middle Wast to fight ISIS with either the Kurds, or Christian militias in Iraq who are getting little to no support from the US government.

Via Fox News Insider:

Matson has been fighting ISIS since September. His vest is inscribed with the words, “Christ is Lord.”

Matson spoke to Sean Hannity today from an undisclosed location in Syria. He explained that the tipping point for him was when Mosul fell to ISIS, and Christians were forced to flee or be killed.

“I decided if our government wasn’t going to do anything, I would,” he said of his decision to fight ISIS overseas.

Matson alleged that people are dying because of politics. He said that the Kurdish people stood by the U.S. for 10 years, and that people in the region just want to live in peace.

He said “we see contact every day.”

Supporters of Violent Extremism To Participate In WH Summit on Countering Violent Extremism (Video)

3659393603 (1)

But of course this should come as no surprise.

Matthew Vadum of FronPageMagazine reported:

Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday.

The so-called Summit on Countering Violent Extremism comes as President Obama seeks formal authorization from Congress to wage war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).

The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, operates mosques in and around Boston.

Members of the anti-terrorist community are outraged that officials of ISB will participate in discussions of anti-terrorism best practices on Feb. 18.

Via the Center for Security Policy:

President Obama is hosting a Countering Violent Extremism Summit this Wednesday Feb. 18 at the White House. The problem is the groups he has invited to help him “solve” the problem are part of the Global Jihad Movement. Tell the President we want to Defeat The Global Jihad, with the Secure Freedom Strategy not pander to the Islamists.

“The Islamic Society of Boston and the Muslim American Society there are riddled with extremists!”

Michael Warren at the Weekly Standard asks, “What sort of progress can Americans expect from this summit?”

If you guessed “a lot of social justice pablum about fighting “root causes,”  you are correct!

According to a senior official who previewed the summit with reporters, the Obama administration views countering violent exteremism (what they label CVE) as “one incredibly important element” of the government’s counterterrorism and national security strategy.

“[O]ur CVE efforts are premised on the central goal of preventing violent extremism and the extremists themselves and their supporters from inspiring, radicalizing, financing or recruiting individuals or groups in the United States from committing acts of violence,” said the official. “Our approach empowers communities to push back against violent extremists.”

What does that mean, exactly? The official continued: “Really at the core of our approach is that the government does not have all the answers in combatting violent extremism. It is, at its core, a bottom-up approach. It puts communities with civic leaders, with religious authorities, with community power brokers, teachers, health providers, et cetera, in the driver’s seat. They know their citizens best. They are the first line of defense to prevent or counter radicalizing forces that can ultimately lead to violence. And so our approach is to really embrace and empower what local communities can do.”

Marie Harf debuted the Regime’s social justice remedy to combat ISIS on Hardball, last night and even Chris Matthews wasn’t having it:

AoSHQ: And so while Marie was putting together photo-collages of CUTE BOYS!!!, this happened.

The BBC:

Jihadist militants from Islamic State (IS) have burned to death 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, the local police chief says.Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the security forces.

IS fighters captured much of the town, near Ain al-Asad air base, last week.

That’s right where our troops are Sheltered in Place.

It is believed the job-seeking jihadis were on line hoping to get hired as greeters at Target when one among them said “Ah fuck this, let’s start burning families to death,” to the general approval of the queue.

Col Obeidi said a compound that houses the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack.He pleaded for help from the government and the international community.

The fighting and poor communications in the area make it difficult to confirm such reports.

They’re trying to draw us out, I think. And we’re so weakly positioned there we can’t go out, because they’ll massacre our troops to a man.

Well-played, Obama. Very well played.

God help us.

Dean Obeidallah at the Daily Beast wonders fretfully if the focus of the summit will be “just on Muslims?”

‘Cause no fair, you guys. What about the Crusades an’ stuff?

Or will the summit look at combatting extremist violence of all types including those related to white supremacists, “Patriot groups,” and even violence that is Christian inspired? If we truly want to save American lives, it needs to be the latter.

I will be attending the summit. In advance of this event, I spoke to several Muslim American leaders about their views of and concerns with it. The responses ranged from some having strong fears that it could further the false but often heard narrative that terrorism is committed only by Muslims. Others, however, unreservedly welcomed this summit as an opportunity to partner with the government to counter radicals.

I’m sure Dean has nothing to worry about. This is the Obama administration we’re talking about.

Joe Klein: Obama’s ‘Slow-Walking Aid to the al Sisi Government’ (Video)

Joe Klein on Morning Joe this morning said the Obama administration is “slow-walking aid to the al-Sisi government.”

The reason why the Regime is stiffing our ally in the fight against ISIS, Klein explained, is because the  al Sisi government came to power by overthrowing the Obama favored Muslim Brotherhood.

“I think it comes from the NSC – which is pretty weak – and also there are a group of people both at the State Dept and the NSC who are – um – who are…*humanitarians and human rights advocates,” Klein explained.

“Why wouldn’t they be the most mad?” Nicolle Wallace interjected.

“They’re mad at General Sisi because he staged a coup and got rid of the Muslim Brotherhood – and the Muslim Brotherhood is a milder form of the same kind of Salafist philosophy that ISIS has,” he answered.

An appalled Scarborough said, “so are you telling me that we have Egypt bombing ISIS, fighting ISIS, going to the UN against ISIS… fighting Hamas, and we’re not supporting them because we don’t like how he got in power?”

Klein: “Mm hmm.”

Scarborough: “Uh okay.”

Oliver North: Obama Refused to Help Jordan, Egypt With Intelligence on ISIS Targets (Video)

In an appearance on On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, Monday night, Lt. Col Oliver North (Ret.) claimed that the Egyptian government asked the US for targeting intelligence on ISIS targets in Libya after ISIS beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians, but the Obama Administration refused the request. North went on to claim that the Regime also refused to give Jordan intelligence on ISIS targets in Syria after their pilot was burned alive in a cage.

Via Gateway Pundit:

“President El Sisi asked for American intelligence targeting intelligence before today’s strikes and didn’t get it. King Abdullah of Jordan asked for Intelligence data on targets to respond to the murder of a Jordanian aircraft pilot. The Kurds are begging for arms and ammo from the United States, not one bullet has been delivered by the United States.”

Via On The Record:

According to the ISIS Study Group, the operation may have been launched without the US government’s knowledge.

This will also be the second time that the Sisi regime has conducted military operations in Libya, the first being the operation that we discussed in late-AUG 14 that used a combination of Egyptian and UAE airpower in addition to the deployment of Egyptian SOF teams. The operation in AUG was done to bolster the forces of Libyan GEN Khalifa Haftar (who we’ve written about extensively on our site), who is the only real moderate in Libya who has the strength to challenge the al-Qaida (AQ/AQIM) and IS presence in the country. More importantly, the operation was launched without the US government’s knowledge. We strongly suspect it remains the case in this latest series of bombings. Furthermore, we assess that Sisi will deploy additional SOF teams in Libya like he did before, although the ground portion will likely be limited to target identification and to coordinate operations with Haftar’s forces (he has his own air assets).

Obama’s hostility to the moderate Muslim leader of Libya GEN Haftar, has reportedly led him to form a stronger alliance with Russia. His refusal to help Jordan adequately has led King Abdullah to strengthen his relationships with GEN Sisi and Israel’s Bibi Netanhayhu.

It wouldn’t surprise me if al Sisi got intelligence help from the Israelis.

Debka is in fact reporting that the Egyptian Army and IDF are now fighting the Islamists together.

For the first time Israel joins an Arab power fighting ISIS terror – from Libya to Sinai and Suez.
More from the ISIS Study Group: 

The reason IS has been allowed to expand throughout North Africa and the Middle East is directly tied to the foreign policy failures of the Obama administration when it decided to support known jihadist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and other like-minded entities during the Arab Spring. The EU is just as guilty, perhaps more so with their flaccid policies in targeting jihadists operating within their own borders. One word sums up the Obama foreign policy: Schizophrenic. The administration contradicts itself two or three times in a single day everyday. A case in point is all the talk about the need to support the moderate Muslims in the Middle East. Well, GEN Haftar, GEN Sisi and King Abdullah are all moderate Muslims who are taking the fight to IS – but the US government is either not doing enough or in some cases doing nothing at all. If anything, the Obama administration has been quite antagonistic towards both Haftar and Sisi, which is why we’re seeing Egypt moving closer to Russia and launching their own unilateral operations. Jordan is the only one of the three to receive support, but its the bare-minimum. This has prompted King Abdullah to strengthen relationships with GEN Sisi and Israel’s Bibi Netanhayhu. Perhaps the most important thing about all this is the fact that we have a moderate Muslim in GEN Sisi who launched this latest military operation to avenge the deaths of 21 Egyptians who were Coptic Christians and not Muslims. Sisi had previously told imams in Egypt they needed to change their rhetoric that Islam destroyed by the Islamic State. (President al-Sisi’s speech:http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/189700#.VOJmIi78OyE)Think about that for a minute. This is a man that the Obama administration should be maintaining a strong relationship. Instead, the relationship with Egypt has soured considerably over the decision to support the wrong people. This fight needs more people like GEN Sisi, GEN Haftar, King Abdullah. The leaders in the US and Europe need to strongly back these leaders and quickly with the logistics and other requirements they need. These men are not asking for US combat troops, they are asking for logistics, weapons, intelligence support and similar assistance. The longer delays in supporting these leaders the more difficult it will be to combat this problem. Delaying action will ultimately allow an even more dangerous enemy to grow dragging the entire world into the conflict on an epic scale. The Islamic State has already grown exponentially from delays in action from the lack of American leadership.

UPDATE: 

Praying this isn’t true….

Gateway Pundit: BREAKING: Libyan Terrorists Take Dozens of Egyptians Hostage as Revenge for Airstrikes:

The Libya Herald reported:

There are reports that at least 35 Egyptians have been kidnapped in what appears to be a round-up at various locations in areas controlled by Ansar Al-Sharia and IS.

The Libya Herald has been told that starting this morning, in the wake of the attack on Derna by warplanes from Egypt, Egyptian nationals, many of them it seems farm workers, have been picked up by gunmen. The first reports were that seven men had been seized, but by mid-afternoon, it was being said that at least 35 had been reported missing.

 

 

 

Raging Rudy Giuliani Scorches Obama’s Weak Policies on Iran

During his powerful speech  at the Iranian-American Community symposium “Countering Islamic Fundamentalism, and a Nuclear-Armed Iran” on February 13, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani excoriated the president for his weak and feckless foreign policies.

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Giuliani this animated:

“My 343 firefighters who died on September 11th, my 2700 citizens who died on September 11th, and soldiers of Forth-Hood who died by a man yelling “Allah Akbar” or the Jewish people just setting there, being shot and killed just a few weeks ago in France because they are Jewish. You know what they have in common?”

“They have in common a movement the president of United States will not recognize.”

“They have been murdered, they have been slaughtered, they have been raped, they have been tortured , they have been beheaded, they have been burned by a movement the president of United State will not recognize!”

“WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?!”

Giuliani noted the current leader of Iran’s long record of duplicity in regards to nuclear power.

“And we’re NEGOTIATING WITH HIM!’ he bellowed.  “This is like playing poker with a guy who has cheated you twice before. You know who does that? A MORON!

“An agreement with Iran with regard to nuclear power is very simple,” he continued, “Iran should not be allowed to get any nuclear power.”

He said that Obama should not be able to come to an agreement with Iran without the consent of Congress.

Part One:

Part Two:

Giuliani tore into Obama for dishonoring the protected Iranian dissidents at Camp Liberty in Iraq – which he called a virtual concentration camp –  thanks to Obama’s neglect.

He lamented that instead of embracing moderate reforms in Iran, Obama is “selling us out” to the Islamic State.

“It must be stopped. It has to be stopped. Our last resort is our Congress, Rudy declared. “And I implore this Congress to stop this weak president from doing things that will be so difficult to reverse!”

“We will not sell out to Iran the way Chamberlain sold out to Hitler!” thundered “America’s Mayor.”

 Via Iran Liberty:

Nearly 3,000 Iranian dissidents residing in Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport, MEK opposition members and “protected persons” under the 4th Geneva Convention, have for five years been under bloody attacks and an inhumane medical and logistical siege imposed by Iraqi forces loyal to the Iranian regime.

The deteriorating medical situation resulting from the imposed medical siege has raised the attention of international human rights organizations and dignitaries about inhumane conditions in the camp. Numerous international calls for measures to provide care for the patients in the camp have been made by many from numerous countries, inviting the UN and the Obama administration to take urgent action to save the lives of the patients of this camp.

Signatories of the statement emphasized that: “From 2009 when the protection and security of Ashraf residents was transferred to the Iraqi government, the residents have been gradually placed under a cruel and deteriorating logistical and medical siege.”

Because Obama is so desperate with a nuclear deal with Iran, these poor people have been forsaken.
