Obama’s Muslim call to prayer

Obama’s Islamic agenda

This is nothing new. It is just a reminder of the mistaken beliefs about hope and change. Hope and change were supposed to lead to a better government. Instead, hope and change had unintended consequences. This article covers just one of the many facets of the consequences of hope and change. I recommend reading the whole article, but here are a few excerpts:
Answer: For Mr. Obama, defending Islam has been a key priority of his presidency.
The message was: I understand you, and I will usher in a new era of Islamic-American relations.
This Mr. Obama has done with a vengeance. He is the most Muslim-friendly president in the nation’s history. He wants the detention center at Guantanamo Bay closed. He demands that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, be tried in civilian court - with the full legal and constitutional protections given to U.S. citizens - several blocks from the World Trade Center site. He has ordered that the words “Muslim extremist,” “Islamic terrorist” and “jihad” be cleansed from national security documents. He is openly anti-Israel. And he is prematurely withdrawing combat troops from Iraq, threatening to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Instead, the Sept. 11 attacks were acts of war in which 19 Muslim hijackers in the name of radical Islam brought global jihad here on American soil.
Across Europe and Canada, a stealth jihad is taking place. Radical Muslim groups have learned to use the West’s freedoms and secular tolerance to advance their Islamist agenda. Shariah law tribunals now exist in Canada, Britain, Germany and the Netherlands. Slowly but surely, political Islam is establishing itself as a potent force across the West. In the vacuum of progressive multiculturalism - with its moral relativism, radical secularism, hatred for the Judeo-Christian heritage and loathing of Western civilization - Islamism is filling the void.
For the Saudi regime, there is no separation of mosque and state. And it is gradually imposing its theocratic will - its Islamist agenda based on Shariah law - upon the West. In light of this, Mr. Obama is a self-conscious radical, who is now putting the interests of Islam ahead of his own country.
I dislike disturbing the sleepy voters, but you do have a choice. You can allow the consequences of hope and change, or you can reject them in November 2012.
