And, as if to add insult to injury, he's about to inaugurate a humongous mosque not too far from the White House:
This week in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Lanham, Md., President Obama and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan are expected to open the largest American mosque in the world. According to the mosque’s website, the $100 million Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center “was built with Turkish funding under the supervision of the Turkish religious foundation (Diyanet).”
In Northern Virginia there is also a large mosque named Dar al-Hijrah, which some have accused of serving as a Hamas front. It was the home of the terrorist spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who was accused of mentoring two of the Sept. 11 hijackers.
What a perfect setup for a jihadi pincer movement on the nation’s capital from Maryland and Virginia.
Also worth remembering is a statement by Turkish President Erdogan: “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” Why would we not take seriously statements by bin Laden and Mr. Erdogan? Denying symptoms and refusing to see a doctor does not make an ailment disappear. Neither does denying the terrorist threat diminish the threat.True enough, but Obama isn't about threat-diminishment as much as he is about running out the clock and letting the next Oval Office occupant deal with the mess he's left.
Update: A decidedly rhetorical question--Will Obama Condemn Artie Erdogan's Jew-hate?
