Obama Deems al Qaeda Racist -- Now We Can Get Mad

I'm still puzzling over Obama's reaction to the outrageous murder of 74 unsuspecting soccer fans and the wounding of 84 others who made the innocent mistake of watching the World Cup final on TV screens in a restaurant and a sports club in Kampala, Uganda, at the same moment that an al Qaeda-linked group of Somali Islamic terrorists chose to make a political statement using a couple of shrapnel-loaded bombs.

The Somalian al-Shabab terrorists, it is known, are trained "by militant veterans of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq" and in the past have "recruited Somali-Americans to carry out suicide bombings in Mogadishu."

Add al-Shabab's spokesman to your list of infamous guys named after the founder of a certain religion. Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage emphasized that "the explosions in Kampala were only a minor message" to Uganda, and he also issued threats to the nation of Burundi. Both Uganda and Burundi have deployed peacekeeping forces to Somalia, and both have majority Christian populations, unlike Somalia, which is almost entirely Sunni Muslim.

According to Ugandan Army Lieutenant Colonel Felix Kulaigye, "Al-Shabab is the reason why we should stay in Somalia. We have to pacify Somalia."

The deaths of and injuries to these victims of Islamic jihad are heartbreaking, and every sane person who hears of these attacks must pause to cope with the shock and sorrow they feel.

But Barack Hussein Obama's reaction to the attack is a real head-scratcher:
What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains.

What! Since 9/11 alone, when Islamic terrorists murdered 2,993 people on U.S. soil, major Islamic terrorist attacks resulting in more than 100 deaths per attack were perpetrated in Indonesia (202 dead), Russia (475 dead), Iraq (2,762 dead), Uganda (239 dead), the Philippines (118 dead), Spain (191 dead), India (374 dead), Sri Lanka (103 dead), Pakistan (357 dead), and Afghanistan (105 dead). (Thanks to Wm. Robert Johnson for statistics and map below.)

These attacks, and numerous others, have informed most sentient people around the globe that Islamic terrorists are indifferent not only to the value of the lives of Africans, but also the lives of North Americans, Western Europeans, Eastern Europeans, Middle Easterners, South Asians, and Southeast Asians--pretty much everyone on the planet, including other Muslims.

Come to think of it, Islamic terrorists themselves hail from all those regions as well.

So why is it that "man-caused disasters" start to look like racist "terrorism" to Barack Hussein Obama when Ugandans are slain? Based on past experience, one would expect the president and his administration to start warning Ugandans to guard against their own potential racism against Muslims, because, as Obama has pointed out, America "will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world for the better. . . ." And, under Obama, America has done so, even diverting NASA space exploration funding to the effort.

It's hard to figure, not only because the deaths of thousands of American citizens at the hands of Islamic terrorists have barely crawled onto the president's "terrorism" meter, but, until now, neither have the horrendous 1998 truck bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Tanzania which killed and maimed mostly innocent passers-by unconnected with any Embassy business.

Why didn't the deaths of those Africans awaken Obama to the problem of Islamic terrorism? Or, posing a question Americans like myself must ask: Why haven't the deaths of Americans on American soil woken the President of the United States to the threat of Islamic terrorism?



  1. Linked you. Have a great weekend!

  2. Well BO does have African heritage and maybe he feels closer to Africans than Americans? He is so focused on the black race that Africans fit into his race-based agenda. It ticks me off how much disregard he has for American lives, how he hasn't stood up for Americans lives that have been lost because of Muslim terrorists and yet he is an appeaser of Muslims.

  3. The question is what mind blowing thing will he do next? I'm just guessing, but I think he will declare the sky to be red.

  4. @ Robot -- Thanks. I'm honored!

    @ Teresa -- Obama's race-based agenda is a shame. It is leaving us with more knots to untangle.

    @ Trestin -- Red, and no other color!
