From Pamela Geller's March 25 BigJournalism.com post titled, "Barack Hussein Obama II's War Against Israel" [emphasis added]:
Obama is not a passive, weak or naive player in the Muslim/Jewish conflict. He was wet-nursed on Jew-hatred. He grew up in a Muslim country and studied the Koran. He knows what is prescribed for the Jews in Islam. He knows that the Koran says that the Jews are the Muslims' worst enemies (5:82) and that "ignominy shall be their portion wheresoever they are found" (3:112).
He knows that Islamic tradition records Muhammad saying:
The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
He must know all this, and yet has never renounced it. On the contrary, he embraces it, calling upon us to "respect" Islam.
I am staggered by the speed with which Obama has sought to undermine the Jewish people. But knowing what I know of him after my three years of investigation for the book I wrote with Robert Spencer, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America , I expected nothing different. In the summer of 2008, I trekked to Florida to warn the alter cockers who were seduced by the idea of Obama, but to no avail: my voice and the voices of those like me are kept neatly tucked away in the blog box.
But now here we are. Jews may then have tried to avoid Obama's anti-Semitism, but they cannot now avoid the consequences of avoiding Obama's anti-Semitism. He has unleashed an evil in this world the extent of which we are only now beginning to see. He has made the world safe for haters and killers. The post-World War II peace was no accident; it was a direct result of American hegemony. But now he is following the European lead and unraveling it. Europe learned the wrong lessons from the war and the Holocaust. The lesson that Europe decided to take from Auschwitz was that everything was caused by nationalism. European leaders decided that therefore what they really needed was a European Union that would obviate their need for nationalism and prevent another Auschwitz.
The Jewish people, both in Israel and the diaspora, seem to be suffering from the Stockholm Syndrome. There can be no logical reason why an American Jew could intellectually excuse Obama's twenty-year friendship and closeness with the anti-Semitic Farrakhan acolyte Jeremiah Wright. There is no way an American Jew could explain away or rationalize Obama's connections to Rashid Khalidi, Ali Abunimah, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and know about those connections without knowing what was coming. These Jews (and our history is plagued with them) love ideas, not people. They are so married to their dogma, their ideology, that they cannot, will not, see what is right in front of them. They worship at the church of human secularism. That is their religion. They have no G-d. They are merely wearing a Jewish coat, but do not speak for Jews.
The six million looked like you, laughed like you, denied like you. The six million loved their country - some were war heroes for Germany in World War I. They too thought the fringe would stay relegated to the margins of society.
The six million are cold in their graves, weeping for what awaits you.
The only difference between American Jews of the 2000s and the European Jews of the 1930s is Israel. This is what separates you from the dehumanization, the oven, the end. A Jewish homeland is the thin blue and white line between civilized men and bloodthirsty savages.
And look what Barack Obama is doing to the Jewish homeland. This is the same "Stephen Wise " Jewish mentality that sold us out and delivered us into the hands of the Third Reich during WWII. It was Wise who prevailed, not Peter Bergson .
Will the American diaspora repeat the same ghastly mistake again, while Shoah victims still walk the earth?
