Open Orlando Investigation?
by Bill Lockwood
Last week’s Orlando night-club slaughter which claimed 49 lives at the hands of Muslim jihadist Omar Mateen continues to be “under investigation”, according to FBI official Ron Hopper. We must leave no stone unturned. Sounds very professional. “Ongoing investigations” defy drawing too many conclusions before the facts are all in.
However, there is one major zone that is absolutely off-limits to any “investigator”—professional or otherwise. The conclusions are already drawn and no further investigation is necessary. As a matter of fact, the entire Obama Administration has decreed this territory to be off-limits: Islam itself. Obama’s FBI has made it emphatically clear that examination of the teachings of Muhammad himself in the Koran or Sunna will be strictly avoided. No discussion or questioning that “Islam is a religion of peace” will be tolerated in our “tolerant society.”
How confident can an American citizen remain in this atmosphere of “accepted state doctrine” crafted by Dictator Obama? In explaining the obvious disconnect between the bloody reality in Orlando and our pro-Islamic state doctrine most pundits prefer that Barack Obama has been hugely embarrassed by his failures to keep America safe from Islamic jihadists and therefore has issued directives to discourage investigation into Islam. This is what I call the “Benefit-of-the-Doubt” option. Obama is trying, but not succeeding, therefore his administration alters the narrative.
Nonsense. This interpretation of Barack Obama’s handling of current events purposefully overlooks stubborn facts. Barack Obama has actually gone to great lengths to stigmatize any resistance to Islamic jihadist murder from the beginning. For example, in February 2012 the Obama Administration deliberately purged over 1,000 pages of documents from counter-terrorism training manuals for the FBI and other government agencies.
All references to “Islam” or “jihad” or related concepts were purposefully removed at orders from Barack Obama. He was not seeking to cover-up any particular jihadi crime that had recently been committed, but was giving voice to his world view. Islam good—Christianity bad. The FBI has been strong-armed by the Saul Alinsky radical in the White House to prostitute its common sense and investigative techniques to fit into Obama’s World. It has been in full retreat ever since Obama took the reins of power.
Barack Obama made clear early on that one of his main objectives is to crack down on “Islamophobic hate speech.” In Cairo in 2009 he told the Muslim world, “I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” Jihadist mass murder by Omar Mateen certainly creates a negative stereotype.
These same pro-Islamic objectives Obama announced in September 2012 while speaking before the General Assembly of the United Nations. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” To “slander” means “to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike” (Al-Azhar University in Cairo, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, 1999; see Robert Spencer, Arab Winter Comes to America, p. 257). As Spencer points out, this does not necessarily mean something that is “untrue,” but just something that a person would prefer not to be known. In other words, Obama confesses that he prefers some things about Islam to remain un-investigated. Orlando or no Orlando.
If the President of the United States is our chief ambassador to foreign nations and the United Nations; and if he truly articulates our doctrine; then we can expect nothing less than wild-eyed lawless Democrats who follow him to continue radical student-like sit-in’s on the Congressional floor. The blood may continue to flow from one Muslim jihadist attack to another across this once-great nation—but one thing that will not occur: an examination into Islam.
