Presidential Speech: Fighting al Qaeda by aiding al Qaeda
Against the backdrop of the Shiite leadership in Iran saying the coming of the Islamic Messiah and the end of the world is near, the US president addressed the American people in an effort to justify his war in Libya. The prophetic implications of his speech and the entire situation that has quickly evolved in the Middle East are phenomenal. Zechariah 12:3 says of Jerusalem that "all the people of the earth be gathered against it." Certainly, radical elements that are haters of Jews and Christians alike--Islamists, leftists, Arabs, socialists--are aligning against God's people--both Jews and those Gentiles who as Romans 11:17 says are, "grafted in among them and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree."
The president justified an attack on Libya by saying, "To brush aside America's responsibility as a leader and -- more profoundly -- our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. \The United States of America is different. And as President, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action." He did not, however, address the very fact that Libyan rebels are comprised of al Qaeda and mercenaries that fought American soldiers in Iraq. Quite the opposite, he said, "That's why we're going after al Qaeda wherever they seek a foothold."
The Director of multilateral affairs at the National Security Council, Samantha Powers, told a crowd at Columbia University Monday that the president's two year campaign to promote human rights helped trigger the uprising in Libya. If so, his actions also could be credited with inspiring uprisings across the Middle East--all of which involve terrorist organizations, including al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and others. Powers was one of three women in the Administration that included Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Ambassador Susan Rice to overrule Defense Secretary Robert Gates in the decision to go to war in Libya. Gates, even as late as Sunday, said that Libya is not a "vital interest for the US."
The common thread among the rebellions across the Middle East are terrorist and jihadist interests. But this Administration would have Americans believe that these uprisings were the result of people wanting democracy. While the common people may want democracy, terrorist-enabling organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood embrace democracy as a way to establish their power and institute Sharia law. The president of the United States is going before his citizens and saying he is acting on behalf of humanitarian interests and those wanting democracy, when in actuality, he is advancing America's enemies. This is classic ideological subversion designed to confuse people. Americans should demand truth.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
