When Will We Wake Up to the Iran Threat?

It was a busy week for the global jihad. Thursday, the mullahs’ mouthpiece, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, announced that the Islamic Republic of Iran had enriched uranium and was now a “nuclear state.”

I cannot believe the impotent West allowed this to happen. Someone padlock the U.N. — what’s the point?

There was supposed to be some benefit to our putting up with all the thieving and embezzling, not to mention the raping and human trafficking of the U.N. “peacekeepers.”

Imagine radical Islam with a nuclear weapon operating in a post-American world.

Most importantly — what a time for America to have such a weakling in the White House.

But his weakness is waking people up. Remember the movie “Awakenings”? Oliver Sacks, played by Robin Williams and semi-fictionalized as Malcolm Sayer in the movie, discovers the amazing effects of the drug L-dopa. It awakened people who had been catatonic for decades.

Watching the tea party convention, reviewing the latest polls, and being fortunate enough to have witnessed the Scott Brown win and the gubernatorial Democratic losses a couple of months back, it dawned on me that Obama is to the American people what L-dopa was to Oliver Sacks’ patients.

Obama, with all his jihad-enabling, is waking up the American people. President L-dopa.

And so in response to the Iranian announcement, President L-dopa announced that he was preparing “significant sanctions” against Iran. So now he admits that the sanctions that are already in place have been insignificant.

And on the same day that Ahmadinejad made his announcement, the White House announced that Barack Obama would travel to Qatar with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to address the seventh annual U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha.

Obama is going to Qatar to “boost ties” with the Muslim world again. Why don’t the Muslims make any effort to boost ties with us? “Boost ties” as in apologize for centuries of jihadi wars, enslavements, exterminations, and Jew-hatred.

Why doesn’t the Muslim world take stock, and stop their relentless imperialism campaigns and their violence and murder of non-Muslims, and live side-by-side with non-Muslims? Because they can’t. It is forbidden in their religion. The world community needs to call upon Islamic leaders to expunge those vile texts from the Quran.

But instead, Obama is going on the charm offensive to Muslim states at a forum in Qatar. The AFP report on his visit complained: “A year into his administration, Obama has yet to achieve any significant momentum on stalled peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis, and Muslim audiences are now less receptive to his promise of a ‘new beginning’ with the Muslim world.”

Ah, we knew that was coming. Islamic Jew-hatred must be slaked. In Qatar, Obama will be pressed to squeeze the Israelis harder than he already has. And he is so desperate to make friends with Muslim countries, he will probably agree.

And there was more good news for the jihadis this week as well. The Washington Times reported that “two new documents laying out the Obama administration’s defense and homeland security strategy over the next four years describe the nation’s terrorist enemies in a number of ways, but fail to mention the words Islam, Islamic or Islamist.” Instead, the report focuses on the really big security threat: climate change!

Meanwhile there has been a sharp increase in jihad activity in the U.S. since Obama took office. This comes at a time when a soft Shariah restriction has been imposed upon media and government agencies: talking about jihad and its root causes in Islam is forbidden.

At the same time, there is a global effort at the U.N. and elsewhere to silence opponents of the jihad, and to criminalize discussion of the Islamic doctrines of jihad violence.

When reason, logic and objective reality become a relic of the past, then anything goes. No snow? It’s global warming! Too much snow? It’s global warming! Don’t want to talk about the jihad? Pretend that climate change is the real terror threat!

How many countries have to slide into the Islamic abyss? How many women have to be burned, sold, trafficked, shrouded?

How many Christians, Jews, and non-believers have to be persecuted, murdered, humiliated?

How many freedoms surrendered? How many 9/11s, 7/7s, 3/11s must there be before freedom-loving peoples push back, say no, and back it up with action? It’s not Obama’s fault he’s president, it’s ours. This is how far we have fallen off the path of individual rights, capitalism, and constitutional rule.

But people are waking up now. Thanks to President L-dopa.
