The flotilla of boats intercepted by Israel this week flew the Turkish flag and was paid for by a “charity” deeply implicated in Islamic terrorism. But the “captain” of the fleet was none other than Barack Obama.
From the day he took the oath of office eighteen arduous months ago, Obama has followed a Middle East foreign policy that’s been as hostile toward Israel as it’s been hospitable toward the Islamic world.

Obama refused “to meddle” in Iran’s affairs after the deadly crackdown against protestors following the Islamic Republic’s sham elections.

Iran would be willing to send its Revolutionary Guard members to accompany further aid ships to Gaza, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday in an interview cited by Reuters.
“The naval wing of the Revolutionary Guard is ready to assist the peace flotilla to Gaza with all its effort and capabilities,” Khamenei’s Revolutionary Guard spokesman Ali Shirazi stated.
“If the Supreme Leader issues an order for this then the Revolutionary Guard naval forces will do their best to secure the ships,” Shirazi said. “It is Iran’s duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza.”
Last week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad termed the IDF raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara as “barbaric” and called for dismantling of “the Zionist regime.”
Ahmadinejad was speaking to a crowd of tens of thousands, many of them chanting anti-Israeli slogans, gathered at the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini for a ceremony marking the 21st anniversary of his death.
Thanks to our friend Joseph for both of the above. Obama is as much an Islamist as those facing our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are foreign enemy combatants, he is a domestic enemy combatant. Visit Joseph’s site.
