President Obama has long tried to persuade us that the “good” things done in the name of Islam, the religion of peace, are all that matter and that Islamist supremacy is unimportant because most Islamists are moderate folks. As the article notes,

there are various ways of interpreting Islam, but the Islam that matters in the Middle East, the Islam that animates tens of millions of Muslims, is Islamic supremacism. Israel, the canary in the West’s coal mine, is not besieged by an eccentric doctrine weaved by Hamas, Hezbollah, and al-Qaeda. Jihadist terrorists are just the point of the ideological spear.

Islamist supremacists in “Palestine” are trying to kill civilians in Israel, while Israel goes to great lengths to avoid harming “civilians” in “Palestine,” even those living where Hamas has intentionally placed its missiles to ensure as many “civilian” casualties as possible. These efforts appear to be, in the view of the Obama Administration, somehow the same.

The jihad against Israel “isn’t a matter of individuals, not a matter of community. It is a matter of a nation. The Arab nation, the Islamic nation.” So exclaimed Egyptian prime minister Hisham Qandil on Thursday in Gaza. He had been sent there to show solidarity with Hamas by Mohamed Morsi, the Brotherhood leader Egyptians elected as their president. “We are all behind you,” Qandil continued — behind “the struggling nation . . . that is presenting its children as heroes every day.”

How do their children become heroes? By being placed in harm’s way by Hamas.

Peace is good and war is bad. However, President Obama seems to want “peace at any price,” when neither he nor his friends will have to pay the price but Israel will. “Peace at any price” did not work out well for those desiring peace above else in the past and the only lasting peace it will bring now is that “which passeth all understanding.”
