Check out my oped piece in today's Human Events: Iran
Rape Video Is Indictment of Obama. Yes, GO and read it all.
The sheer brutality of the crackdown on the Iranian people who were
marching for freedom, for the principle of one man, one vote, was
impossible for us in the West to fathom. We heard the horror stories. We
saw unarmed people meeting bullets with sheer will.
Iranians could not win this way. Barack Obama made sure of that.
watched the President of the United States essentially sanction the
crushing suppression of people who were yearning to be free by ignoring
their plight. We witnessed the President of the United States look the
other way while Iranian thugs committed acts of mass rape, torture and
public hangings of innocent people. All that and more was done by an
Islamic regime that President Obama demands that we respect.
said it in his Inaugural Address: “To the Muslim world, we seek a new
way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.” On Al-Arabiya
News Channel six days later, he used the phrase again: “To the Arab
world and the Muslim world… we are ready to initiate a new partnership
based on mutual respect and mutual interest.”
In his famous
Cairo address on June 4, 2009, he said it again: “I’ve come here to
Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims
around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and
one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and
need not be in competition.” And in Turkey that same month, he spelled
it out: “We seek broader engagement based upon mutual interest and
mutual respect. We will listen carefully, we will bridge
misunderstanding, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful
even when we do not agree.”
This respect included the bloody
mullahs of Tehran. Appealing to Iran in March 2009, Obama said: “We seek
… engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.” On
November 4, 2009, the 30th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S.
Embassy in Tehran and the beginning of the Iranian hostage crisis, Obama
said: “I have made it clear that the United States of America wants to
move beyond this past, and seeks a relationship with the Islamic
Republic of Iran based upon mutual interests and mutual respect.”
