Maybe it’s time to review this material from Jihad Watch.
Is it fair to paint all Islamic schools of thought as violent?
Islamic apologists often point out that Islam is not a monolith and that there are differences of opinion among the different Islamic schools of thought. That is true, but, while there are differences, there are also common elements. Just as Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant Christians differ on many aspects of Christianity, still they accept important common elements. So it is with Islam. One of the common elements to all Islamic schools of thought is jihad, understood as the obligation of the Ummah to conquer and subdue the world in the name of Allah and rule it under Sharia law. The four Sunni Madhhabs (schools of fiqh [Islamic religious jurisprudence]) — Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali — all agree that there is a collective obligation on Muslims to make war on the rest of the world. Furthermore, even the schools of thought outside Sunni orthodoxy, including Sufism and the Jafari (Shia) school, agree on the necessity of jihad. When it comes to matters of jihad, the different schools disagree on such questions as whether infidels must first be asked to convert to Islam before hostilities may begin (Osama bin Laden asked America to convert before Al-Qaeda’s attacks); how plunder should be distributed among victorious jihadists; whether a long-term Fabian strategy against dar al-harb is preferable to an all-out frontal attack; etc.

One of Britain’s more guarded secrets was the number of nuclear weapons in its arsenal. Well, not any more. Obama gave the Russians the serial numbers for all of the nuclear weapons in Britain’s arsenal. Ostensibly, this was to show our good faith to Putin. Really? Wonder how the Brits felt about it…
The agreement, according to diplomatic cables released by the whistleblowers’ website, detailed plans for the Obama Administration to reveal to the Russians the serial numbers of all Trident D5 missiles which the United States provide to Britain.

Here is what is amazing: it doesn’t matter.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration’s handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to “Al Qaeda involvement” were stripped from his agency’s original talking points — while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed.

What a sickening state of affairs when an American would say this…
Ted Turner: I Think It’s Good US Troops Are Commiting Suicide.
This is an excellent explanation for Obama’s actions. It’s all about his faith and hatred of colonial powers… And Karl Marx.
That brings us to the current debacle in Libya, which can only be understood if we understand Obama’s worldview on the “the Muslim World.” Like the so-called “moderate” Muslims, Obama insists Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and blames previous American foreign policy and Israel for Islamic anger. Obama narrowed down the problem of Islamism to al-Qaida while embracing other Islamic groups as moderate, such as the Muslim Brotherhood. By doing that Obama dismissed the long history of terror of the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave birth to al-Qaida and hundreds of other terror groups. Nothing in Obama’s world is the fault of Islam, and that is why he ordered the Fort Hood massacre to be classified as workplace violence and not Islamic terrorism.
Obama believes that he uniquely understands the Muslim world and will bring a new era of peace with Islam, at least during his administration. There are also strong rumors in Egypt that when Obama met with the Egyptian foreign minister, he confided in him that he was a Muslim and that he would help the Islamic cause in America after he passed his health-care bill.
But as president of the United States, Obama was in a quagmire between protecting American lives and being loyal to Islam and appeasing his Islamic friends. Placing American Marines in U.S. consulates in dangerous terror-infested Islamic countries was going to jeopardize a bloody confrontation between American security and Islamists. That was also going to discredit Obama’s theory of Islam having nothing to do with terrorism. Also, if Obama were to confront militarily Muslim jihadists in Islamic countries, his whole theory that he has brought a new page in American/Islamic relations would fall apart and he would be no different from his predecessors, Bush or Reagan.
That explains why the demands for American security instead of Libyan security by U.S. Ambassador Stevens went unanswered. Obama did not want to deal with the possibility that American Marines would shoot at Muslim attackers to save American lives.

In the law we call this res ipsa loquitur (the thing speaks for itself). Really, what more needs be said? Pure enemies want Barry re-elected.
Truly, the world is upside down.
The latest [dictator] to publicly announce his support for the commander-in-chief’s reelection bid was Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who this week assured he’d vote for Obama if he were from the United States. The America-bashing strongman made the announcement on state-owned television, saying “Obama is a good guy” and that if Obama was from Caracas, he’d surely return the favor by voting for Chavez.

And he will never acknowledge this. The guy is Muslim and his heart is with Islam. The evidence is overwhelming. Moreover, the guy was NOT born in the USA and most certainly was born in Kenya. The evidence for that is also overwhelming.
And here is the upshot: The guy does not bleed red, white, and blue.
Isn’t that clear by now?
Despite numerous public events including a speech at the United Nations and two presidential debates, President Obama still hasn’t publicly and plainly acknowledged to Americans that terrorists killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya on Sept. 11.

Something made clear in Obama’s America 2016 is that he seeks to lessen the economic and military strength of the USA while increasing those attributes of countries he sees has having been exploited by America.
So, his policies are to destroy our energy sources and to make us more dependent on oil from countries that hate us–namely Venezuela and all the Arab states.

An interesting piece today at American Thinker asks why they hate us. Bruce Walker does a pretty good job explaining, but it is in combination with two adroit comments that the full picture appears.
Mr. Walker basically posits that they hate us because we are good. And in that he is right. However, one comment (“From Missouri”) noted that what separates us is our adherence to Judeo-Christian teachings, and all those who hate us (including most Democrats), detest same.
So far so good. But, then “Shadow” noted that:
They fear Western society will open the eyes of the oppressed in their society and cause a revolt against the tyrants.
So, to combine the thoughts, I commented:
Shadow, I think you are on to it, and your post, taken with the comment “From Missouri,” fills in an important piece of the puzzle. They hate us because we are good, as Mr. Walker concludes, but we are good because our foundation is in the Bible. And that is what separates us and guides us in creating the economic, political, and legal systems the Muslims hate.

Enter the world’s newest bully. Just as Hitler was the greatest threat to the world in the 1930s, so now, radical Islam is the greatest threat to world peace. . . .
I will tolerate others who believe differently than I. As a Christian, I will love you. But once you try to hurt me or my family, all bets are off. I lock-n-load. In short, if you try to hurt the ones I love, because they won’t convert to your religion… I will kill you.

My latest article (blog entry) appears today at American Thinker. Here is a snippet:
With Obama genuflecting to Muslim leaders around the world, with him supporting the creation of radical Muslim regimes, and with his administration supporting and spewing all manner of leftist drivel (see Saul Alinsky’s Rule 13) aimed at shutting down conservative voices, we might as well accept that our First Amendment has already been revised. Published first here, the new First Amendment now reads:
Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble; provided, however, the right to commit Illegal acts against people who offend shall not be infringed.

The examples of Democrats hating our military are so numerous that it is literally hard to catalog. Here is the latest. See what you think of this:
On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.
But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.
