No Apologies Round Two

"Few if any recent generations could sit with a Bible in one hand and their newspapers in the other and see the fulfillment of prophecy, but for us it’s almost routine." Jack Kelly

Arab Spring, Israel's , Freedom's Winter

It's been a while since I've dissected a political speech. I will offer no apologies for being sarcastic in my opinions here, as this is the only way I can respond to such lies and appeasement. Keep in mind, the bits in red are quotes taken from Obama's speech.

"For six months, we have witnessed an extraordinary change take place in the Middle East and North Africa. Square by square; town by town; country by country; the people have risen up to demand their basic human rights. Two leaders have stepped aside. More may follow."

Yes, too bad though we didn't support the human rights of the people in Iran when they were marching peacefully against Iranian dictators. You didn't say or do a thing there Obama. Many of us are still wondering why.

"And though these countries may be a great distance from our shores, we know that our own future is bound to this region by the forces of economics and security; history and faith."

I don't see how we are bound to these regions though history and faith. They have always had a demonic hatred of Israel since God made the covenant with Issac instead of Ishmael, and hated America because of our previous friendship with Israel. As for their faith, how can America and the Middle East be any further apart when America is free to all of any faith, because of it's CHRISTIAN heritage, yet one gets burned to death or beheaded in the Middle East for not being Muslim?

"Sometimes, in the course of history, the actions of ordinary citizens spark movements for change because they speak to a longing for freedom that has built up for years. In America, think of the defiance of those patriots in Boston who refused to pay taxes to a King, or the dignity of Rosa Parks as she sat courageously in her seat. So it was in Tunisia, as that vendor’s act of desperation tapped into the frustration felt throughout the country. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets, then thousands. And in the face of batons and sometimes bullets, they refused to go home – day after day, week after week, until a dictator of more than two decades finally left power."
Yes Obama, we do think of the patriots in Boston, hence the rise of the Tea Party! You praise the patriots in Muslim countries for rising up, for demonstrating and demanding their rights- yet you ignore the majority of America who have peacefully gathered to petition what many of us see as an over reaching, out of control government! You seem to praise some, yet ignore others- again, where was your praise and support of the Iranian people?!

"In too many countries, power has been concentrated in the hands of the few. In too many countries, a citizen like that young vendor had nowhere to turn – no honest judiciary to hear his case; no independent media to give him voice; no credible political party to represent his views; no free and fair election where he could choose his leader."
And now, in America we are beginning to see that kind of power of a few who care nothing of our Constitution, who hires a group of elite, unelected "czars" who have never been subject to proper vetting yet are make legislation decisions which will effect the whole country. Making deals in the middle of the night and behind locked doors are not what America is all about.

"Nor can people reach their potential when you cannot start a business without paying a bribe."
Nor can people reach their potential when you can not start a business without paying for county, state and federal permits, be ordered to be unionized, force them to pay health insurance and tax them out of business!

"Satellite television and the Internet provide a window into the wider world – a world of astonishing progress in places like India, Indonesia and Brazil. Cell phones and social networks allow young people to connect and organize like never before."
Yes, maybe, except when regimes make it a crime to access such progress. Places such as China and Venezuela. Oops! I forgot, they are our friends!

"People everywhere would see their economies crippled by a cut off in energy supplies. "
Kind of like what you and your green buddies are trying to do to us, isn't it Obama? Yup, I remember when you promised our energy prices would "necessarily skyrocket". Thanks for that.

"Moreover, failure to speak to the broader aspirations of ordinary people will only feed the suspicion that has festered for years that the United States pursues our own interests at their expense. "
Gee, where did they ever get that idea Obama? Perhaps from the many leftist politicians, actors, musicians and elites who have benefited greatly from a capitalist economy, travel the world to trash America's greed and capitalist economy?

"..as Americans have been seared by hostage taking, violent rhetoric, and terrorist attacks that have killed thousands of our citizens – a failure to change our approach threatens a deepening spiral of division between the United States and Muslim communities. "
I have a deal Obama- tell your Muslim friends around the world to stop murdering my Christian brothers and sisters, stop putting fatwas out on people for their freedom to speak, stop raping nuns, stop beheading young school girls, stop mutilating baby girls, stop beating women, stop stoning women, stop honor killings, and stop bombing churches, stop building mosques on the sights they seem as conquered for Islam and start allowing churches and Synagogues to be built in Muslim countries, maybe I will be a little less "divisive".

"There must be no doubt that the United States of America welcomes change that advances self-determination and opportunity"

As long as that change is in countries we want. Not in places such as China, Venezuela, Iran, Cuba....

"we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be."
AH!!! We come to the crux of the humanistic/secular/Marxist dream- the world as it should be... the world as they think it should be. You forget your supposed Christian Bible Obama, where the Word tells us that this is a fallen world, and that God's Will will be done, Not yours, mine or anyone else's. Yes, we try and love and help others out of simple compassion, but we must realize that this world, when ruled by fallen men will never be a world as it should Have been, when God walked the garden in the cool of the evening.

"Our opposition to Iran’s intolerance – as well as its illicit nuclear program, and its sponsorship of terror – is well known"
How, all the people have heard from your administration is cricket chirps. Your silence, Obama was loud and clear when the people were being murdered on the streets of Tehran! As for our opposition to their nuclear power, then why are you leaving it up to them to have time to develop those weapons? The longer you sit and wait, all the while faintly saying, you can't do that, they are doing that! I know, you're leaving it up to Israel, when the nuke missiles start flying.

"So in the months ahead, America must use all our influence to encourage reform in the region"

Is that not what you and all the rest of the left had been screaming about all the past decade? Is that not the very idea that the left has been blaming Islamic terrorism on, that America is muscling reform on the middle east?!

"We look forward to working with all who embrace genuine and inclusive democracy...Because democracy depends not only on elections, but also strong and accountable institutions, and respect for the rights of minorities."

There won't be much chance with that then, as groups such as Muslim Brotherhood are anything but inclusive to anyone or anything other than sharia, and the advancement of Islam around the world. They will not, as they have never embraced inclusiveness of Christians and Jews, nor have they respected the rights of Christians or Jews or any other religion and they deny Israel's right to live!

"Such tolerance is particularly important when it comes to religion. In Tahrir Square, we heard Egyptians from all walks of life chant, “Muslims, Christians, we are one.."

At least they may have been chanting that when they weren't bombing the Coptic churches.

"Prosperity also requires tearing down walls that stand in the way of progress – the corruption of elites who steal from their people; the red tape that stops an idea from becoming a business; the patronage that distributes wealth based on tribe or sect. We will help governments meet international obligations, and invest efforts anti-corruption; by working with parliamentarians who are developing reforms, and activists who use technology to hold government accountable."
Gee, I thought the first sentence was about America until you said tribe or sect! You promote all of this for the rest of the world, yet deny Americans of the same chances? Obama, I see your anti American roots are showing again!! I would also like to know how you expect to help other countries with their reforms when we are broke?

"For decades, the conflict between Israelis and Arabs has cast a shadow over the region"
Yeah, nothing creates a shadow like continual rockets and suicide bombings.

"For Palestinians, it has meant suffering the humiliation of occupation, and never living in a nation of their own."

Perhaps if they realized there are no "palestinian" race, that they are Arabs, they would find they would be perfectly comfortable in settling in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Qatar, the EUA, or any of the vast middle eastern Arab countries. Humiliation of a non existing condition is no excuse for wanting the complete annihilation of another nation and people.

"My Administration has worked with the parties and the international community for over two years to end this conflict, yet expectations have gone unmet. Israeli settlement activity continues."

I notice constantly Obama, that when addressing blame, you always mention Israel first. Hmmm. Gee, imagine, Israeli citizens building in... Israel.

"For the Palestinians, efforts to de legitimize Israel will end in failure"
So why do you continue when it will be a failure? It will be, because "palestinians" and most of the other Arab nations surrounding Israel do not and will never recognize an Israeli State. Take a look at their maps, Obama, you will not find one map in the Middle East which shows Israel. They will never be satisfied until Israel no longer exists- but since Israel exists because God loves His people, I would be mighty careful of continual disrespect that you show them.

"The international community is tired of an endless process that never produces an outcome."

Do you intelligent elites ever wonder why that is? You mock those who believe that God is Almighty, yet Israel's rebirth and the continuity of Jews through thousands of years of upheaval, genocide and persecution is in itself a miracle of God.

"The dream of a Jewish and democratic state cannot be fulfilled with permanent occupation."
Really? How is it that Israel is the occupier? Does anyone know history?

"Israel must be able to defend itself – by itself – against any threat. Provisions must also be robust enough to prevent a resurgence of terrorism; to stop the infiltration of weapons; and to provide effective border security."

If I could believe you meant that Obama, I would thank you for it. But too long has this administration shown disrespect to Israel's leaders, and leftists in America and around the world continue to reprimand Israel for defending themselves. Too many on the left, here and around the world continue to call Israel an apartheid state just for building barriers to keep bombers out. This is not respecting Israel for defending themselves!

"But moving forward now on the basis of territory and security provides a foundation to resolve those two issues in a way that is just and fair, and that respects the rights and aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians."
Demanding Israel give up crucial land, in which every foot is precious- is not providing a just, fair or respectful right to Israel. Again, those Arabs the world seems to like to call palestinians, a name given to the region as a slur by the Roman Empire, do not care about land- if it were, there are billions of square miles of Arab land surrounding the tiny plot of modern day Israel that they could choose from. Again- the goal of the Arabs is the destruction of the Israeli people.

"And I would not be standing here today unless past generations turned to the moral force of non-violence as a way to perfect our union – organizing, marching, and protesting peacefully together to make real those words that declared our nation: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal"
Yes, make this speech about you again somehow. It's interesting that your organizations Obama, ACORN, unions and others seem to love demonstrations, rallies, marching and protests, if it is for anything the left stands for, yet when others demonstrate, rally, march or protest, we're threatened with violence, have lies spewed about us, we are mocked and ignored by your administration, your media and your groups. And again, Obama- WHO created all men equal, and why do you continue to ignore our CREATOR whenever you give these speeches? Is it because you prefer people to believe government gives rights and freedoms? You repeat a lie enough, or ignore the truth enough, people will believe you....

"But the United States of America was founded on the belief that people should govern themselves. Now, we cannot hesitate to stand squarely on the side of those who are reaching for their rights, knowing that their success will bring about a world that is more peaceful, more stable, and more just."
It's interesting how progressives use something they don't believe when it suits their purpose! They always do it with Bible scriptures taken out of context, and now, using the founding of our nation, which they fight hard to keep out of schools!  You do not believe this, nor do any of the elite progressives in power. You do not want anyone to govern themselves, or you would not be so intrusive in our individual lives, families, homes and businesses. You believe in government giving rights, you believe in making the decisions on who will have the right to life through abortion and eugenics, who will have the right to liberty, by praising the rise of groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood yet denying the liberties of Christians living in such places as Egypt, Iran, Sudan, China, Venezuela, the EUA, North Korea, Pakistan, India, Ethiopia, the Ivory Coast, and Somalia among many other countries. You do not believe it when you deny the right of the pursuit of happiness without having to give up security to someone who makes no bones about hating your guts, happiness without having to have rockets shot at you as thanks for the land you gave.

Progressives believe in nothing except creating a world to fit their ideals, where they are in charge, hand out the rights as they deem fit, to those whom they want. A world scrubbed clean of Christ, and His Salvation- a elitist utopia where their will is done, and God's will ignored and showing favor to those who go against God.
Only thing is, while people like Obama mock folks for clinging to their Bibles, God will not be mocked. God's will WILL be done when He is ready, and no one will be able to stand in the Almighty's way. Jesus tells us, He reminds those of us who hope in Him, and warns those who deny Him, that He will be back, and that He will some day rule the world as it was meant to be, before men's sinful, selfish ways destroyed it. He shows us the signs of the time of His return, and I would suggest- earnestly suggest you read His Word, accept His free gift of salvation, trust in Him in these times. As this speech by Obama, the events in the Middle East point to, those of us who Hope in Jesus instead of man, know our redemption draws nigh.
