Someone recently remarked that Obama is a one-man sleeper cell after hearing about his National Prayer Breakfast remarks and refusal to aid Jordan against ISIS. Sadly, his remark could not have been more accurate. Obama patiently and silently planned, as one of many in an intentional sleeper cell, to advance in America what Islam is advancing worldwide.
Muslims have overtaken most of the ground on which Jesus walked, bled and died, from Bethlehem to Nazareth to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. Muslims conquered Jerusalem in A.D. 637. Fifty years later, Muhammad's followers deliberately began building their "second holiest" mosque on the Temple Mount, replacing what they believed was the Jew's holiest site.
Opposite the Temple Mount, across the Kidron Valley on the Mount of Olives, where Jesus sweat blood, was betrayed and was arrested, lies one of the most violent and dangerous neighborhoods in Israel. Of all terrorist attacks in Israel, 90 percent originates from this Palestinian neighborhood called Silowan. Indeed, Silowan is world renowned for its initiation of violence.
In the seventh century after Muhammad fled Medina, he led numerous battles against non-Muslims. Within one generation, his converts left Arabia heading northwest to invade Mediterranean and North African regions and northeast to invade former Russian and Mongolian regions. Muhammad's followers sacked Jerusalem, Rome, Constantinople and thousands of other cities and towns in which no Muslim had previously lived. In fact, it was not until several hundred years later in 1095 that Pope Urban II asked for help to liberate Rome from Islamic invasion. Even then, however, the pope did not represent Christ's early followers. To be clear, Mr. President: It was the Muslims who invaded Spain, France, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Syria, Iran and Iraq—and Muhammad's followers still are invading non-Muslims countries.
And what has Islam brought to these countries? Poverty, illiteracy and oppression—especially of women and children. And, Mr. President, Islam has organized and implemented the most expansive slavery enterprise—ever—in history. In fact, historians have estimated that Arabs have enslaved over 100 million people over 14 centuries. Additionally, Arabs enslaved Africans 1,000 years prior to the European African slave trade and continued another 100 years after Europeans abolished it.
But Obama's friends have made quite clear their sleeper cell's activities.
Consider Valerie Jarett, Obama's closest confident and chief of staff, who said at Stanford University, "I am an Iranian by birth and of my Islamic faith. I am also an American citizen and I seek to help change America to be a more Islamic country. My faith guides me and I feel like it is going well in the transition of using freedom of religion in America against itself."
Or consider Omar Ahmed, chairman of the board of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) who advocates, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."
There's also Mohammed Elibiary, who in 2013 tweeted, "Yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution." A member of the Department of Homeland Security's presidential Advisory Council, Elibiary, is close to Shukri Abu Baker, who was convicted for funding terrorism through Hamas via his "charity," to which Elibiary financially contributed.
And consider these Muslim Brotherhood members who hold high level positions in the Obama Administration: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for Policy Development; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council; and Eboo Patel, member of Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-based Neighborhood Partnerships.
The "hope and change" Obama planned all along is inextricably linked to Islam.
As former Muslim Dr. Wafa Sultan recently noted, despite the atrocities committed against the Jews during the Holocaust, "We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew protest by killing people. Only the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they demand that humankind respect them."
Muhammad killed innocent people while propagating a message of hate. Jesus allowed Himself to be killed expressing love and forgiveness. Obama, as a Muslim, knows full well that Islam means "surrender" to Allah—or death—and is inherently violent. And taqiyya, lying encouraged by Muhammad, is why Obama has no problem blaming the crusades on Christians.
