Obama White House Video Promotes Islam, Recognizes “Northern Palestine” in Video to Muslim World

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember when Muslims sent their resumes in bulk to the Obama White House? They didn’t need to, since they’re already there in big ranks. And the White House wants you and the Muslim world to know.
I’ll get to the Obama pandering speech to Muslims in Cairo (made earlier this morning), later.
But first, FYI, instead of posting the Obama speech, front and center on the White House site, the Obama Administration posted this video of “Muslim Americans Serving in the U.S. Government.” It’s simply sickening. Do you ever see the White House producing and promoting pandering videos about Christians proudly serving in the U.S. government? Jews? Zoroastrians? Wiccans? Hari Krishnas? Clearly, the Obamaniks are promoting a certain religion.

And get the quotes from this video, made not for us Americans, but for the Muslims on the Arab Street in HD Technipander.
Lema Bashir, a Palestinian Muslim trial attorney for the voting rights section of the Civil Rights division in the Justice Department. (Well, now we know why Muslim voter fraud in Dearbornistan is allowed to continue.)
Bashir tells us her father was born in “Northern Palestine.” What the heck is “Northern Palestine”? There is no such thing in Gaza or the so-called “West Bank.” There’s only a Northern Israel, which is where her father was born, inside the Green Zone. Since the Obama administration left that in the video, they’re apparently letting us and the Muslim world know that they accept and buy into Palestinian claims that ALL of Israel is “Palestine.”
Then, there’s a revealing quote from Afeefa Syeed, a Muslim and Senior Advisor for Culture and Development with the Middle East and Asia Bureaus of USAID (the U.S. Agency for International Development). (Well, now we know why USAID money continues to go, courtesy of the American taxpayer, to Hezbollah and HAMAS.)

The ideals that we hold as American Muslims are not that different from what they–from what Muslims around the world also hold.

Yes, finally, they admit what I’ve been saying and what contradicts their propaganda–i.e., that Muslims in America are not moderate, are no more reasonable and civil and less violent and extreme than their co-religionists around the rest of the world. The ones in America want to see this country on its knees (and all Jews and Christians dead) just as badly as the Muslims around the world.
Like I said, this video wasn’t made for Americans. It was made as a message to Muslims everywhere else, to tell them,

America’s White House and its President agree with you on “Northern Palestine” and that all of Israel is “Palestine.” America’s President sides with the Muslim ideals around the world.

Wake the heck up, America!
**** UPDATE: Just realized I forgot to mention an important detail. The White House use of taxpayer funds to promote Islam is a clear violation of the Constitutional separation between church and state. The Establishment Clause clearly prohibits the use of federal dollars to promote religion, including and especially a specific religion.
But, hey, as I always note, America has no separation between mosque and state. Only church and state. That’s how it’s enforced, anyway, by our “Justice” Department.

Over the years, I’ve tried to take the reasonable position and mindset that it’s a finite (meaning not totally inclusive) numeber of fanatical Islamonuts that are the cor of the problem. Over the years it’s become harder and harder to maintain a moderate position in this, out of a sense of fairness if nothing else.
The more I see of this kind of pandering, covert undermining of American goals and values, and nearly outright embrace of Islam as a focus within America (as presented in terms such as “we are not a Judeo-Christian nation” reachign now to the characterization of the US as a Moslem Nation by Obama, the more I see the need to fear the culture of hate and intolerance it presents.
By their own words in the video, you can sense and discern the global solidarity of the Islamic world in their goals to undermine and supress Christianity and Judaism.
While I still would like to believe that not every Muslim is fanatical in their goals of faith, it is obvious that the number of them dwindles with exposure and the passing of time, much like Abraham’s bargaining with the Messengers of God in avoiding the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah on the number of righteous people residing there. The analogy being that the longer you negotiate, the fewer there are to find to use in the bargaining.

ìIT WAS ISLAMÖ that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europeís Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation.î Obama in Cairo.
Not in any history books I’ve ever read. When, why, and how did this historical distortion become so vogue? Why does Western culture want to be so obsequious?

    To kaporet : ” ISLAMÖ that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europeís Renaissance and Enlightenment ” . Are you out of your liberal uneducated mind ??? Muslims stole algebra from India . They create nothing . Except sea of blood innocent victims .Muslims killed 80 million Hindus , 60 millions Christians , 10 millions Buddhists .Buddhists do not keep up with the history of war. Keep in mind that in jihad only Christians and Jews were allowed to survive as dhimmis (servants to Islam); everyone else had to convert or die. Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India.

kaporet – seems to me that you’re confusing technical proclivity with morality and religious intentions. While those facts you cite are true about those contributions (probably our numerical system more than any other is a contribution of greatest magnitude), the goals, laws, intentions of Islam still reside in the 7th century. Concepts such as “females as posessions”, repression, forcible conversion to the faith by the sword, the tenets of Sharia law, and all of that reflect NONE of the social enlightenment that the Renaissance you speak of in Europe brought to western culture. Concepts of individual rights, free society, separation of governance from clerical rule are all absent in Islam’s teachings and the Wahabbi goals that is in the forefront of the threat to our life and liberties.

Mistress_Dee on June 4, 2009 at 11:13 am

Mistress — That’s Obama’s quote, and apparent belief, and not mine.
It’s always been my understanding that algebra, and the concept of zero came from the Hindi culture while enslaved under Islam.
I completely agree with everything you wrote.

kaporet on June 4, 2009 at 11:23 am

Hi Debbie!
I skipped that video because I almost retched when I saw the link, but could she mean Syria, when she says ‘Northern Palestine’? The Syrians regard the ‘Palestine Mandate’ as part of ‘Greater Syria.’

Shouldn’t Obama be selling cars instead of doing these puff pieces on arabs? He doesn’t do them for Irish, Jews, Mennonites. Why just on Muslims? He could do them on mennonites who were persecuted and fled Russia as did the Jews. mennonites brought bread to kansas and feed the world litterally with the red Russian winter wheat they shared.
The narcisist endeavor for self gratification, validation and flattery is getting expensive.

That Lema Bashir quote was absolutely sickening. This is all Taqquiyya, in a propaganda care package. Your father was born in Israel, Lema! Get that through your ignorant, brain-washed head, girly!

Yiddish Steel on June 4, 2009 at 11:42 am

These people are all more reason to reject “Diversity”. If you’re not willing to accept unity in this country, you have no right to speak for my country.

Yiddish Steel on June 4, 2009 at 11:43 am

Well, I am thinking about purchasing share of Consolidated Edison this morning. It is a high dividend yield utility. But I was thinking there is a catastrophic risk issue, as demonstrated by 9/11. The Muslims do see New York as the target. So, then I saw your post. And I made the connection — if I buy Con Ed then maybe I am better off financially if we kow tow and kiss up this way. Maybe? Obama obviously thinks there is a deterrent value in this. But is it just an appeasement that buys a short bit of time?

Perpetua on June 4, 2009 at 11:50 am

There isn’t and never has been a country “Palestine.”
“Palestinians” have never governed there own people.
I submitt to the forum that Palestinians are currently useful to Arabs and temporarily held in high regard as they tend to do the “dirty” work for those who hate us, but still want our dollars for their oil.
Otherwise why were they treated so bad by the Syrians?
Otherwise, why do the PLO and HAMAS NOT get along?
The UN charter that established Israel also established Palestine. Result? War against Israel.
Go figure.

SamAdams on June 4, 2009 at 12:16 pm

Robert Spencer who analyzed the speech Debbie will get to later found it full of naivete, dishonesty, and boiler plate platitudes. Its a Blame the West, Its All Israel’s Fault and Excuse Islam speech. Its failure was assured before a single sentence was uttered. So tell us again what kind of change of Obama is seeking from Islam that will change the crude barbarianism within the faith. There are no “moderate” Muslims. If there were, the President wouldn’t have had to go to Cairo today in the first place.

Isn’t this video prima facie evidence that the administration of king hussein is violating the separation clause of the First Amendment? Is this actionable?

MLMOON on June 4, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Is he implementing the ideology of the Syrian National Socialist party, which is of course a terror group calling for a great Syria?

Daniel on June 4, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Debbie, did you catch that poster on the video at 18second mark? It co-opted the iconic WWII Rosie the Riveter photo of “Yes We Can Do It” to a hijab wearing Muslim women. It made my stomach turn. This administration is completely disgusting. This is Bizarro world.
By the way cant we see Ms Thang in a burqua or hijab? Love to see MSM gloat about her arms then.

Our Constitution is being fluoted and disregarded. Those words written on the document by the founding fathers will be empty words if this continues. For a long time they were sacrosanct and were not flagrantly violated, but that does not seem so anymore. They will become nothing but words. If you want to see the consequence of this, look at the decline and fall of Rome.

norman on June 4, 2009 at 1:39 pm

We have a spineless jellyfish as a president. How is this different than Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement policy? Maybe if we’re nice enough to these desert dwelling creatures, they will be nice to us. What an ignorant, infantile foreign policy to have. I hope common sense will prevail.

CobraKai on June 4, 2009 at 1:51 pm

Oh yeah he is promoting Islam. In his speech today he said he considers it part of his responsiblity as President to correct negative stereotypes of Islam where ever they are found. Huh? Now he is Islams defender. I thought it was Muslims duty to defend their faith………..oohhhhhhhhhhh I get it now. lol

Hermster on June 4, 2009 at 3:11 pm

The keepsakes ( T-shirts , etc ) selling in Egypt today are quite telling too. Obama “Tutankhamen” of the world. The boy King/Pharoah. Yep, they are claiming one of their own for all the world to see.

Hermster on June 4, 2009 at 3:16 pm

I never thought I’d feel like Natalie Maines. So completely embarassed that such a childish, idealistic fool representing my country stands on the world stage spewing that which makes our enemies laugh, and feel ever more emboldened. The only difference, is that vacuous bimbette was refering to George Bush. The man who made our enemies fear us. It’s all upside down.

[I’ll get to the Obama pandering speech to Muslims in Cairo (made earlier this morning), later.]
A lot later. There is enough here to keep Debbie busy for an eternity (If she doesn’t give up in frustration first – I probably would). I just read the transcript, and I should have stopped when he quoted a passage from the Koran that plagiarized Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers). Muslims themselves show by their actions and what they support that they cannot possibly believe this passage.
However the biggest joke of all was this line:
“Resistance through violence and killing is wrong and it does not succeed”. Really? Obama wouldn’t have made this speech if violence did not work. Think about it.

i_am_me on June 4, 2009 at 3:24 pm

Regarding all the money we send the terrorist in “Palestine”. The last time I read the Constitution it does not authorize one cent of aid to a foreign country period. Therefore it is unconstitutional to send foreign aid to any country.
This is one of my pet pives with out Congress, Foreign aid is unconstitutional.

ScottyDog on June 4, 2009 at 3:48 pm

Try to put a nativity scene on public (remember when we called it public land?) or government property and people freak out and file lawsuits. Try to have a school Christmas play and they will call out the National Guard.
But barry tells the world we are a muslim nation and the people cheer. They make muslim videos and people cheer. He commands his people to learn about islam and the people cheer. He gives terrorists billions of our tax dollars to kill more innocent people, not just in Israel but here in America and the people want to make him king of the world.
It sickens me what we have become and to think, it’s not even six months under the rule of barry the first, er barry the one and only.

ender on June 4, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Ha ha, just noticed that “we can do it” poster as pointed out by someone else here. She looks like Octomom!

Greg on June 5, 2009 at 8:04 pm

Debbie, any chance she meant something like, Northern West Bank? Does anyone know exactly where her father was born?
