Spare the Rod, Spoil the World

Spare the Rod, Spoil the World

People who work in sales often rely on leads.  The better the source of the lead, the better the lead itself.  So when your lead comes from the President of the United States and his Secretary of State, you’d be foolish not to follow up and close that puppy.

The leader of al-Qaida has urged Muslims to wage holy war against the United States and Israel over a film that insulted Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

Ayman al-Zawahri praised as “honest and zealous” demonstrators who breached the U.S Embassy in Cairo and attackers who stormed the U.S. “embassy” in Benghazi in violence linked to the film. The American ambassador and three others died in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in the Libyan city.

Even if, as president, you later defend the concept of free speech, blaming widespread rioting and murder in the Muslim world on a film is ostensibly a ratification of the violence.  Militant Muslims didn’t see the arrest of that “filmmaker” as a laudable conciliation; they saw it as an encouragement.  Hence, al-Zawahri’s latest missive.

But why include Israel in his (sales) call to jihad over a “film” by an Egyptian-American? Here’s what Mitt Romney said two weeks ago in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.

The president began his term with the explicit policy of creating “daylight” between our two countries. He recently downgraded Israel from being our “closest ally” in the Middle East to being only “one of our closest allies.” It’s a diplomatic message that will be received clearly by Israel and its adversaries alike.

Of course, in al-Zawahri’s world of inciting-chaos theory, it’s always a good day for Jew hating and murder.  When a butterfly flapping its wings in Calcutta leads to a typhoon in Japan, you can blame the Jews.

But it’s not wrong to infer that that “daylight”—which reached a continent’s width when Obama demanded that the starting point for territorial negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians begin with the 1949 armistice lines—is perceived by the Islamic world as an incitement to more of the same.

Just like the Youtube condemnation.

What’s odd is that the Obama daughters seem like really delightful young ladies—not the kind whose bad behavior is appeased by their parents with excuses offered on their behalf.  If only our president would make the connection between his children at home and those who behave like children out there.

Creating “daylight,” returning busts of Churchill, scapegoating unseen youtube videos, bowing to the point of doing the limbo … no wonder they fear us.

And that’s the problem. They don’t respect fear. They only respect love.

Now Hillary, if you wanna be likable enough, why don’t you just make like Tammy, take this here buck that’s just sick of being passed around, and crawl under that there bus? Don’t make us throw you under, Hillary. You know how we hate shows of force.

LukeHandCool (who would only add that, strangely enough, you can spell “appeasement” without daylight … and that’s just bowing overkill)

Oh and P.S.

Leave it to a Jew to blame the butterflies for what the Jews are doing.

No, that does not mean, as so many Firsters will try to convince you, that I am anti-Anthropomorphisic.

We should leave Obama’s daughters out of the discussion, completely. It is naive to assume that they are anything but radicals in the making, following the lead and instruction of their parents. Are we to assume that the Obamas, who are leading players in the indoctrination of America’s youth, are somehow raising their kids to love America?
That’s why I say: leave the girls out of the discussion.

    Mostly agree, Rick. I don’t know about the “budding socialist” part but do know that we don’t often see pictures of them happy. It’s hard not to pity them. The best we can do is leave them in peace.

Wait, Ayman al Zawahri is now saying, post riots, that the protesters in Cairo were upset about a stupid video that few have seen?

My guess is that al Zawahri is simply following the lead in the shell game that is being played by the Oval Office.

Funny, some people hang on every word put out by CNN, but this video got little notice:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPszLCEyu-I

CNN’s Nic Robertson interviewed the Blind Sheikh’s brother on 9-11, the day of the Cairo protests. His brother was the main organizer for the Cairo protests. But you will notice one thing missing from the interview as to why they were going to protest; THE VIDEO. Instead, the reason, the SOLE reason for the protest was the release of the Blind Sheikh. Odd that we have heard rumors since the Benghazi attack of negotiations to release the Blind Sheikh into Egyptian hands, for humanitarian reasons, of course. When Ambassador Patrick Kennedy was asked about that during this week’s Congressional hearings, Kennedy was not affirmative that it was not in the works. He simply stated that he was not aware of it being in the works.

    My guess is that al Zawahri is simply following the lead in the shell game that is being played by the Oval Office.

    Played by our evil Kenyan Mooslim jihadi Afrocentrist black supremacist Communist homosexual Manchurian Candidate traitor President!

    When Ambassador Patrick Kennedy was asked about that during this week’s Congressional hearings, Kennedy was not affirmative that it was not in the works. He simply stated that he was not aware of it being in the works.

    There you have it, ladies and gentlemen! Could anything be plainer?

    More to the point-

    For two months prior to the Sept. 11 attack on the Cairo embassy, there were “rumors” floating around on the blogs that Obama was “considering” the transfer of the Blind Sheik to Egyptian authorities.

    Shortly after–and I mean the day after–Morsi was sworn in, he publicly stated he wanted the Blind Sheik returned to Egypt.

    We now know the embassy attack in Cairo was all about the Blind Sheik.

    Here’s were it gets interesting..

    The week following the attack, Morsi said that if the United States did not punish the film maker, he would organize a protest take over of the embassy with 1 million muslim brotherhood following Friday prayers.

    The night before, Thursday, Obama had a 1 hour phone conversation with Morsi.

    The following morning, Morsi called off the “protest”, allowing Obama to keep his embassy, preserving his chances for re-election.

    If anyone doesn’t think that entire conversation was Obama trying to convince Morsi that he would have to wait for his 2nd term when he would have more “flexibility” to release the Blind Sheik, well, you’re not paying attention.

Obama’s method of putting out a fire is to essentially pour rhetorical gasoline over us and give al Qaeda a light.

Spare the Rod, Spoil the World

I firmly support a policy of peace through strength (military, economic, and cultural strength). That said, America’s relationship to the rest of the world is not one of parent to child, nor should it be.

    No, but you ought to be able to recognize when somebody is playing “new kid on the block” with you.

As has been said before Obama is the adult child of his upbringing. His white trendy , lefty privileged grandparents did a job on both his mother and then him and passed the damage on. This leftist commie\ nazi 30s progressive heritage has culminated in tens of thousands of cultural bedwetters such as B. O. He couldnt have built this monstrocity without decades of preparation and untold numbers of usefull idiots , fellow travelers.

“What’s odd is that the Obama daughters seem like really delightful young ladies—not the kind whose bad behavior is appeased by their parents with excuses offered on their behalf.

Really? How much interaction have you had with the obama kids? I would posit that based on what their parents are, they are a couple of hurtin’ units.

Using the 1948 truce lines as a basis for negotiating Israel’s present boundaries indicates either incredible ignorance of history on the part of the present or a global shift in America’s policy towards Israeli security.

That would be like using America’s 1492 boundaries as a starting place to negotiate with the Indian Nations over territorial claims.

Obama is either insipidly stupid or an outright enemy of Israel. Or both.

Given Obama’s upbringing, educational institutions attended, and persons with whom he’s has been and is associated, I would suspect that he has difficulty with the concept of discipline. There’s plenty to suggest this from the way he problem-solves, organization of his work and play, his seeming inability to set priorities, and his dealing with subordinates and other world leaders. When it comes to his daughters, I get the impression he’s more of the indulgent type, with Michele as more of the disciplinarian.

“MITTMENTUM”

I get the impression that michelle is not only the displinarian but also the dominate partner in this family. She’s sure mean enough for the job. She looks angry all the time.

As far as the children of the obamas go…what makes anyone think the influence of the parents will be any less than the influence obama had from his mother and grandparents? The torch will be carried on by the next generation. However, I do feel that children should be left out of any political situation. Would that the dims had the same attitude.

” The president began his term with the explicit policy of creating “daylight” between our two countries. He recently downgraded Israel from being our “closest ally” in the Middle East to being only “one of our closest allies.” It’s a diplomatic message that will be received clearly by Israel and its adversaries alike. ”

All very nice and tidy but forgetting the most important point, and that is from the time that Israel withdrew from Gaza it has been inundated with thousands of rockets and mortars fired into its population centres, and not even a whimper from its closest “ally” castigating the miscreants, but a flux of money to continue with the barrage.

Obviously the view that the Arabs take from this is completely different to that of Foggy Bottom.
