Boko Haram is evil and therefore is NOT Islamic! Thus spake a State Department official

Even if evil is Islamic, what difference does it make now?
Obama is “our” President and it pleaseth Him

Obama Banard College REV

According to a Democrat Senator from New Hampshire, Boko Haram is not Islamist.

New Hampshire senator Jeanne Shaheen says Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist group that has kidnapped hundreds of Nigerian girls from their families and forced them to convert to Islam, should not be confused with Islam. The Democrat made the point in a Thursday hearing.

One of the hearing’s witnesses, State Department official Robert Jackson, prompted Shaheen’s comment when he argued that “Boko Haram’s philosophy is not an Islamist philosophy.”

“I agree and I’m glad you made that point,” said Shaheen. “Clearly, we need to make sure Islam is not confused with some of these horrible terrorist acts that have been and continue to be perpetrated by terrorists groups.” [Emphasis added.]

Silly me! I had thought there might be an Islamist connection. It was very generous of the Senator and State Department official to let me in on the secret.

The young women allegedly kidnapped by Boko Haram must have been secret Muslims for a long time, forced unwillingly to pretend to be Christians to avoid being killed by their Christian families for dishonoring them. They have been freed thanks to beneficent Islam and may soon have the great joys of being raped sold wed.

Honor killings? They aren’t Islamic and those who commit them are probably Protestant or Jewish lost souls who cling to their guns and Bibles.

Islam is merely a political religion seeking, and well along its true path to, world domination. We need to enlist in its righteous cause with President Obama continuing to lead our way out of darkness into the light of a better day. He is one of all too few in America privileged to enjoy the Islamic call to prayer, which He considers one of the prettiest sounds he has ever heard at sunset.

[A] president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

Moreover, Mr. Obama’s own grandfather in Kenya was a Muslim. Mr. Obama never met his grandfather and says he isn’t sure if his grandfather’s two wives were simultaneous or consecutive, or even if he was Sunni or Shiite. (O.K., maybe Mr. Obama should just give up on Alabama.)

Our biggest mistake since World War II has been a lack of sensitivity to other people’s nationalism, from Vietnam to Iraq. Perhaps as a result of his background, Mr. Obama has been unusually sensitive to such issues and to the need to project respect rather than arrogance. He has consistently shown great instincts. [Emphasis added.]

Here, for the listening pleasure of all not yet privileged to enjoy it, is a Muslim call to prayer recording.

It sounds to me, doubtless an ignorant Islamophobe, like a very sick cow complaining about her mastitis. President Obama might enjoy that too.


Can’t we all contribute a pittance and help to buy a sick cow for President Obama? Perhaps He can pasture her in His lovely wife’s garden. Don’t worry; a mere cow shouldn’t make the FLOTUS jealous. Even if it does, He can blame her discontent on man-made climate change which, unlike the indisputably peaceful nature of Islam, is the indisputable (see also an article by Andrew Watts) cause of everything bad and it’s all our fault.

While we collect our pennies to send to President Obama, here’s a video to watch on how to survive an Islamist massacre.

That's racist

UPDATE, May 17th

An article at PJ Tatler posted on May 16th is titled Nigerian ‘Sex-Slaves’ Throw Wrench in Obama Narrative on Islam. Well worth reading, it begins:

Islamic law permits the possession of concubines, or sex slaves.  This has been demonstrated countless times including through Islamic clerics quoting Islamic scriptures, and through ordinary Muslims, past and presentacting on it.

That said, Islamic sanctioned sex-slavery does not perturb the Western world simply because the powers-that-be—specifically academia, media, and government—ignore it, and all other unsavory phenomena associated with Islam, out of existence. [Emphasis added.]

It concludes,

From Obama administration officials who helped empower Nigeria’s Islamic terrorists, only to wring their hands and feign outrage at their behavior, to Islamic clerics who confidently dispel accusations against Islam, only to put their heads in the sand and hope no one calls them out—here is just a small example of what officialdom would have to deal with if the full totality of crimes committed in the name of Islam were to become common knowledge. [Emphasis added.]

The entire article is well worth reading.
