Freedom has enemies in this world. Throughout history freedom has been allusive. Not until the American Revolution has the modern world seen a nation founded on freedom, and from its beginnings the United States has been challenged to keep it!
In today’s world the threats to freedom are even more challenging. One strategy has been to allign with lesser enemies to defeat the larger threat. It has been said that “the enemy of our enemy is our friend.” Not so fast!
President Obama is scheduled to address the nation tonight over the growing world-wide threat posed by Fundamental Islamists out of the Middle East. I don’t expect him to offer, and follow through on, the tough strategy needed to stop this movement in its tracks. The weak, liberal mindset can go no further than talk, sanctions, and occasional drone attacks.
Our last President offered a strong view of the danger of Fundamental Islamic ambitions. Back in 2007, George W. Bush spelled out exactly what we are seeing today. He understood the threat, and warned of the dire consequences to the world if America withdrew its “seeds of freedom” from the region.
Because of the past six years of liberal foolishness, we are at the point where the only answer is all out air and ground attacks on known ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Boka Haram, El Shabab, etc. targets! In addition, as a nation we must acknowledge that “collateral damage” (the deaths of innocent people) will occur…as 1945 Japan understood, after the US dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima. Nations who attempt to rule through terror, face the possibility of annihilation!
President Obama will never concede that his own weak policies are responsible for the rise of this current terrible threat upon the world! To this day he has not shown an understanding of the hatred fundamental to the Muslim religion. In fact, he has claimed that Islamic prayers in the morning are a beautiful childhood memory for him, growing up as a Muslim in Indonesia. How many Americans realize that we have a President that was raised to revere the Koran? Barak Hussein Obama does not recognize the evil that is his childhood religion!
If Obama offers a plan tonight, it will no doubt result in more of the same weakness he has already demonstrated. His strategy will involve cooperation with other Islamist nations…everyone of them Sharia endorsers…with the end result of only more vile atrocities in the Middle East, and eventually the entire world.
Our enemies are religious. They are Islamists. These are doing Satan’s work in this world, killing Christ-followers and destroying anything good within their reach!
If Americans accept these facts, and decide to stand strong for freedom, we can destroy this enemy. If we wait, or show any more weakness, our children will have the opportunity to “hear morning prayers” on every city block. It’s already happened in some parts of this country…
“…on the very day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, the reverse occurred: the Jews gained mastery over those who hated them. The Jews gathered in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hands on those who sought their harm. And no one could stand against them…” (Esther 9:1-2/ESV)
