Obama’s ‘Arab Spring’ déjà vu of Carter’s ‘Fall of the Shah’

Sharing is caring!

Last year Barack Obama ‘led-from-behind’ to help ‘rebel fighters’ defeat two long-time dictators in North Africa, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, in what became gloriously labeled the ‘Arab Spring,’ as if to channel Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music.”

However, what Obama didn’t realize was that his ‘dream’ of free and democratic Muslim-dominated societies springing up would actually unleash the spread of Islamic Jihad against the United States and any other western democracy, in favor of Sharia Law-dominated religious theocracies.

In Egypt, the “Muslim Brotherhood” garnered the greatest number of votes in a ‘democratic’ election earlier in the year, and after taking ‘administrative power,’ with the military still in control of [U.S. subsidized, manufactured and trained] military assets.

In Libya, the hob knob cadre of ‘rebel militias’ that defeated, captured then executed Gaddafi, are now often fighting with one another for control of the nation’s vast oil wealth, while elements of al-Qaeda infiltrate the population.

The world is now beginning to get a sense of ‘deja vu,’ harkening back to 1979, when President Jimmy Carter (also a first-term Liberal ‘dove’ with no foreign policy chops), paved the way for the overthrow of The Shah of Iran, which ushered the ruthless Ayatollah Khomeini into power, the invasion the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and holding of 52 American citizens hostage for what would be 444 days–in what would become known as “The Iranian Hostage Crisis.”

To complete the picture of parallel plights, Jimmy Carter, like Barack Obama, had brought the United States to severe financial ‘Armageddon,’ wherein the term ‘stagflation’ was born; but, was nonetheless still slightly ahead in polling right up until the end.

Although Carter worked to ‘free’ the Embassy hostages, on the very eve of the election, against popular California Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan, talks with Iran collapsed–cinching Reagan’s 49 state landslide victory in November 1980.

Now, fast forward to the 11th anniversary of “9/11,” where first we had thousands of Muslim’s the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, purportedly angry about a 17-minute Youtube film circulating around the Internet that makes fun of Islam’s Prophet Mohammed. After spray painting Arabic slogans all over the 10 foot high perimeter wall, several ‘protesters’ climb the wall, enter the grounds, rip down and tear to shreds the American flag–then replace it with a black al-Qaeda flag without so much as being asked for a ‘photo ID’ by Embassy Marine Corps security.

The official U.S. Embassy response tells the whole, ‘feckless’ story for the Obama administration, as reported by CBS News today:

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims–as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.

Not a single word about invading the Embassy, stealing and desecrating the American flag, then surreptitiously dismissing our Constitutional First Amendment Right to ‘Freedom of Speech’ in favor of religious ‘hurt feelings,’ all the while the Muslim Brotherhood has been slaughtering Coptic Christian ‘believers’ and burning down their churches with impunity.

Then, hours later in the evening, next door in Libya, according to Wanis al-Sharef, an Interior Ministry official in Benghazi, another ‘angry’ Muslim mob attacked the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, overpowered the Libyan guards with automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades, ultimately killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens (who guided U.S. efforts helping the rebels to overcome the Gaddafi regime), along with three other Mission members, according to reporting today by The Associated Press.

Could this possibly be another ‘Jimmy Carter-scale’ blunder by a Liberal Democrat U.S. President–this time Barack Hussein Obama–whose vision for world peace could actually, and ironically, have financed and advanced the footprint of Islamic Extremism and Jihad in the Middle East, bringing the Apocalypse closer to the United States and the rest of the post-Old Testament modern world…particularly Israel.

Perhaps there is a very compelling reason why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is so insistent upon meeting with the president this week–and likewise why Barack Obama is snubbing him for all of Israel to see.
