One of Obama’s first statements after he took office as the POTUS was, “We are not a Christian nation…” And he set out to prove it.
One of Obama’s first acts as POTUS was to give $900 million in aid to Gaza in 2009. Then in 2011 he funneled a billion dollars into Palestine, claiming it is not going to aide Hamas in 2011, and then gave $147 million to Hamas in 2012.
You’d think with that kind of dhimmitude, the terrorists wishing to establish a caliphate in America would just let Obama keep doing what he’s doing.
Can you imagine the chagrin of Israel who had to use their resources to destroy the bunkers and tunnels of concrete built by Hamas and the missiles and rockets Hamas purchased with that money in order to terrorize the Israeli people for no reason.
That money was supposed to provide aid to the poor Palestinian people.
Obama recently thanked Muslim Americans for their many “achievements and contributions … to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”
Obama is undoubtedly a little light on his history.
The framers of our constitution expressed that the U.S. should not be involved in wars of foreign countries. We found out that America could not be an isolationist, as there were threats to American sovereignty. Enter Muslims.
President Thomas Jefferson was the first to declare a war the U.S. fought on foreign land and seas, as American engaged in the First Barbary War, 1801 – 1805. That war was fought against BERBER MUSLIMS.
The Marine Corps hymn pays tribute to that war in the lyrics, “to the shores of Tripoli.”
Lieutenant Presley O’Bannon was the first man to raise the American flag over foreign soil and was presented the Mameluke Sword, which is now the Marine Corps officer’s sword.
So indeed the Muslims have “contributed to building the very fabric of our nation”. They are the reason we decided that sometimes war is necessary. That’s as true today as it was in 1801.
