Recently, Israel has started a bombing campaign in the Gaza Strip against those blood thirsty terrorists, Hamas. President Elect, Barak Obama weighed in yesterday with the comment that for Hamas to stop attacking Israel would be the same as the United States ceasing to attack al Qaeda.
Now, either this is yet another gaffe that has escaped the lips of Obama, or something much worse, a glimpse into his true allegience.
Let's start first with the possibility of this just being yet another idiotic gaffe on his part. You know, like his statment on the campaign trail that he had visited 57 states so far and had a few more to go.
Let's see, in Obama's gaffe, the U.S. (a Western Democratic Nation) is the same as Hamas (an Islamic extemist terrorist organization). While, al Qaeda (another Islamic extremist terrorist organization) is somehow equal to Israel (a Western Democratic Nation).
Does anybody see a problem with this analogy?
For those liberals who are incapable of seeing anything beyond the echo chamber of liberal sound bites that they have been indoctrinated with; here's a breakdown of what is wrong with this analogy.
The analogy would make more sense if it lined up the appropiate players. It should have the same Western Democratic Nations on each side of the analogy pitted against the same Islamic extremist terrorist organizations on the other side.
In other words, for the analogy to make sense it should have been stated thusly:
For Israel (a Western Democratic Nation) to cease attacking Hamas (an Islamic extremist terrorist organization) would be the same as the U.S. (a Western Democratic Nation) ceasing to attack al Qaeda (an Islamic extremist terrorist organization).
Was it a gaffe on Obama's part? Or, was it a true glimpse into what side he is actually on? If the latter is true then the American voter has been duped into voting into power America's own version of Britan's Neville Chamberlain.
God forbid! Many, many innocent lives were lost due to Chamberlain's foolish cowardness.
There is no doubt that al Qaeda and the rest of radical Islam has declared war on Israel, the U.S., and the rest of Western Civilization. There is also no doubt what their plans are for us.
Let's hope and pray that this is just yet another gaffe out of Obama's mouth. If it isn't we are headed for serious trouble.
I am still of the mind that we have to get behind our new President, but now I am leaning towards Ronald Reagan's phrase: "trust but verify".
Just one more thing is bothering me about Barak Obama. For the first time in American political history, the "Office of the President Elect" has been established, complete with press covered speeches. Sorry, but this smacks of incredible arrogance on Obama's part. He isn't even in power yet. Yet, he wants to bully his way into the spotlight as if he even matters yet. In the words of his own staff, "we are a nation that has one President at a time." Once again, we see Obama in a rather obvious hypocrital position. I guess it is "Chicago politics" as usual. (And yeah, I know, too many yets)
