DEFENDING THE WEST
'Catastrophic' John McCain: GOP's worst nightmare
Exclusive: Pamela Geller excoriates senators for enabling Obama's support of al-Qaida
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Monday, according to Bloomberg News,
that “the U.S. must follow up with more assistance to Assad’s opponents
to shift the balance of power in the conflict … dismissing concerns
that some rebels have militant ties. ‘Those who say we don’t know who
the opposition are, they are either not telling the truth and they know
the truth or they are badly mistaken.’”
This is rich coming from a man who posed with known jihad kidnappers in Syria.
Back in May, McCain went to Syria to meet with the opposition. While
there, he posed for a now-notorious photo with two Sunni jihadists who
were involved in kidnapping 11 Shiite pilgrims in 2012. This is what
happens when clueless politicians inject themselves into situations in
which they clearly do not belong. What was McCain thinking, sneaking
into Syria to meet with jihadists?
Barack Obama is wrong and completely isolated on his Syria plan to
back al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood opposition. But who do you
think is coming to the rescue? RINOs. McCain and his sidekick, Lindsey
Graham, R-S.C., are now carrying water for Obama’s pro-jihadist
intervention in Syria. Step ‘n Fetchit McCain and Graham were at the
White House Monday getting their marching orders from the Dear Leader.
There were no congressional Democrats at the White House.
McCain said Monday that blocking Obama’s Syria strike would be
“catastrophic.” No, Sen. McCain. Obama’s support of the Muslim
Brotherhood in Egypt was “catastrophic,” and so is his backing of the
Brotherhood and al-Qaida in Syria.
McCain explained that to refuse to go along with Obama’s Syrian
misadventure would be “catastrophic” because “it would undermine the
credibility of the United States of America and of the president of the
United States.” As if Obama hasn’t undermined his own credibility beyond
Then on Tuesday, McCain dismissed the Syrian jihadis’ cries of
“Allahu akbar” by equating them with saying “Thank G-d.” We are
witnessing an embarrassing meltdown right before our very eyes. John
McCain equating the cries of “Allahu akbar” after a jihadi attack with
“Thank G-d” requires a complete break with reality.
I have never heard Christian or Jew (or any non-Muslim) scream “Thank
G-d” after beheading someone or blowing up a school, or slaughtering
Muslims on their way to mosque. “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and John
McCain is an idiot. The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is meant to
“strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers” (Quran 3:151).
Why isn’t McCain the poster boy for the Christians and religious
minorities being persecuted, oppressed and slaughtered under Muslim
rule? He is a disgrace. McCain and Graham should be backing the
Christians and the Kurds, not jihadists in Syria. The GOP coming to the
rescue of the most seditious and dangerous president in American history
is inexcusable and unforgivable.
Even the New York Times
reported that “nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular
fighting force to speak of.” And that was on April 28. Nothing has
improved for secularists in Syria since then. But neither the Democrats
nor the RINOs have noticed, despite McCain’s protestations to the
contrary. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday compared Bashar
al-Assad to “Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein.”
It would be funny if it weren’t so scary. Just last week the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) ran a story
featuring jihadists talking about fighting with the “rebels” and the
Free Syrian Army – the very groups Obama is supporting. There has to be a
complete disconnect to reality for Obama and McCain to support these
savages. Despite knowing that the opposition in Syria is driven by jihad
and brutal Islamic supremacism and that its players include the Taliban and al-Qaida, Congress caved to Obama’s demand to arm the jihadists. In July, House and Senate Intelligence panel members voted to block Obama from arming the Syrian jihadis, but Obama decided to arm them anyway.
And no, I do not believe Assad used chemical weapons. I think that is
an elaborate ruse by the jihadists to get the U.S. and Europe to take
up arms against Assad. And it looks as if it is working.
Which Muslim Brotherhood operatives are advising McCain and Graham?
Seriously. CAIR, ISNA, ICNA? How otherwise could they possibly have come
to the conclusion that Obama’s catastrophic Syria plan is good for
Muslims from around the world – the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia – are
joining the jihad in Syria to fight for Islamic conquest and
supremacism. Religious minorities are being annihilated by the
jihadists, and yet another nation could well fall to this brutal and
And it isn’t just McCain. John Boehner Tuesday Clinton’s State Department was told that Benghazi was a “terrorist attack” minutes after it began – and lied about it.
We don’t need a third party. We need a second party. Ted Cruz is not
enough. The GOP is all but disappearing before our very eyes. They are
MIA on Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS and now Syria.
Obama is aiding the jihadists; McCain is sneaking into Syria to pose
for pics with them. The former is complicit, the latter is clueless. The
outcome is the same.
