Such high hopes; so quickly those hopes dashed. Hillary Rodham Clinton has shown herself to be just another dhimmi tool of Barack Hussein Obama. Obama was raised a Muslim, and, depending on who you ask, he’s still one. As for his actual beliefs, those count for little in the Muslim world: it’s Koran and sharia or death, baby. You can’t leave the one true faith with your head on your shoulders.
Islam has been a religion of violence and conquest at the point of the sword since its inception. Nothing changes except the tactics. The strategy remains the same: one world, one caliph, one Koran. Many liberals and other fools in the West don’t wish to accept these hard truths. Obama and his pliant secretary of state are among those fools.
Here’s the dhimmi whine by Clinton, as reported by the WaPo, in a story that has the telling headline: Clinton Says U.S. Seeks Unity With Muslim World. The gist:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that the Obama administration will make “a concerted effort” to restore the image of the United States in the Islamic world and will seek to “enlist the help of Muslims around the world against the extremists.”
Good luck with that project, Hill. Not that all Muslims are “extremists” of course. Just that most Muslims either approve of violent jihad or don’t think it’s their problem to do anything about it. But that is not a politically correct thought, and, as we should know by now, under liberals in the West, never shall be heard a disparaging word about any favored “minority.”
Clinton goes one step further, by expressing embarrassment at being a Christian:
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question about terrorism causing people in the United States to have anti-Muslim “prejudice,” a term she rejected forcefully. “I am a Christian,” she said. “Through the centuries we have had many people who have done terrible things in the name of Christianity. They have perverted the religion.”
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. True enough: there have been many who have done evil in the name of Christ. But, as Clinton correctly notes, that was a perversion of our savior’s message.
Two points. First, she need not apologize for things done long ago and which virtually all Christians today agree were wrong. Although, in the truth-telling department, it wasn’t wrong for Christian nations to fight back against Muslim aggression. Some of the methods were wrong, but the basics were right.
Second, while Christians sin when they murder, Muslims who kill infidels are not considered sinners if they are engaged in holy jihad. Which the Koran calls on all Muslims to engage in, one way or another. Short version: when Christians kill Muslims in a Crusade, they may be sinners. When Muslims kill Christians (or Jews or Hindus or Buddhists) in jihad, they are heroes.
Our government officials, when they bow and scrape before the Muslim street, are exhibiting dhimmitude. Dhimmitude that may get us all killed.
