The "Muslims First" Foreign Policy

In France, American embassies and consulates have been directed to "empower" Muslim and push for the passage of "social reforms" that will benefit them. In the UK, American diplomats were directed to again "empower" Muslims and made outreach to them a top priority. In Israel, the US consulate in Jerusalem caters only to Muslims and does its best to pretend that Jews and Israel don't even exist. And when Obama visited Greece, what else did he do but push the political and religious authorities to open more mosques and Islamic schools. America's own interests and our obligations to our allies have been put aside to focus on a single goal of overriding importance. Pandering to the Muslim world. It's as if we have no other foreign policy goal anymore beyond keeping Muslims happy.

The United States has its first Special Representative to Muslim Communities in the person of Farah Pandith. We also have Rashad Hussain, a Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. (No relation to Barack Hussein Obama. The name Hussain is common among Muslims as a tribute to Mohammed's grandson, Hussain ibn Ali, the 'Martyr Of Martyrs' in Islam.) Hussain (Rashad, not Barack) had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which helped create both Al Qaeda and Hamas, and defended Islamic Jihad leader Sami Al-Arian. Farah Pandith is a Kashmiri Muslim who began her career as Barbara Bush's secretary. But just creating two new Muslim posts in the diplomatic sector isn't enough.

NASA Administrator Bolden told Al Jazeera that the agency's new priority is outreach to Muslims. After gutting NASA and killing its space program, the agency focused on its new top priority by appointing Waleed Abdalati, as its new Chief Scientist. Waleed Abdalati is a twofer, as a Muslim and a Global Warming researcher. So the Obama Administration gets to kill off the space program and replace it with Global Warming junk science headed by a Muslim. It's what the devil would call synergy.

Is any of this working? Does the Muslim world love us now? No they don't. And France, the UK, Israel and Greece like us less for tampering with their internal affairs at Muslim instigation. All the outreach in the world can't help, because it's not outreach, it's pandering. Not only is it condescending, but it sends a message of weakness and desperation. When we pressure our allies on behalf of Muslims, we're sending them a signal that our first priority is fulfilling the marching orders we received from the Muslim world. And this not only fragments our traditional alliances, but it encourages Muslim regimes to support further acts of terrorism to improve their position.
Since 9/11 we have sunk billions of dollars into the Muslim world. Usually we had to defeat a country in a war before we began rebuilding them, but now we rush to throw money at hellholes like Pakistan and Indonesia where human rights is a punchline and the mass murder of non-Muslims is an ongoing event. 

Taking a look at the fortunes we have plowed into Taliban's godfathers in Pakistan, the round the clock duty that American soldiers perform securing and rebuilding Afghanistan and Iraq, the death grip that Bin Laden's own adoptive Saudi royal family has on our foreign policy, our bankrolling of the Palestinian Authority, not to mention the money that we paid and are still paying to Baathist and Taliban terrorists in exchange for not attacking us-- and even the least terrorist prone country in the Muslim world can't help but think that it could do better for itself by bombing us, than by trying to be our friend.

This frantic flurry of outreach reveals that we consider Islam to be the primary threat to global stability and a major national security threat. The positive image reveals the negative. We're so obsessed with pandering to Muslims because we're afraid of them. The Muslim world knows it, and gloats, when it isn't busy acting offended. The American public knows it too, even behind the camouflage tarp of learning about other cultures, that we're trying to defuse the violence. But trying to defuse violence through appeasement is not a good strategy unless you're willing to go all the way to Dhimmitown.

By enslaving our foreign policy to Islamic interests, we're already much of the way there. Chief Justice Stephen Breyer has adopted a new Constitutional understanding of free speech, in which you're free to say what you want as long as it doesn't run the risk of getting Muslims violently angry. In Europe you can be arrested for yodeling even in the shadow of the Alps-- if it offends a Muslim. A 21st century revival of The Sound of Music might now feature the Von Trapp family escaping into the mountains only to end up under arrest because some immigrant from Algeria, Morocco or Turkey was offended because the sound of "The Lonely Goatherd" resembled his own prayers to Allah a little too much.

What does this have to do with foreign policy? Everything. If we treat the Muslims of the world as a collective group always balanced on the edge of exploding, then there is no more difference between foreign and domestic policy when it comes to Muslims. Accordingly every Western country with a Muslim minority must pursue only Muslim approved policies at home and abroad. If Thailand, Israel or India begin fighting Muslim terrorism-- they must join in on the Muslim side. If France passes a Burqa ban, then the United States must begin lobbying to overturn it. If Danish cartoons in a local newspaper offend Muslims, then the Prime Minister of Denmark must be compelled to apologize for his country's free speech before being allowed to become NATO's Secretary General.

The combination of Muslim terrorism and immigration eradicates all differences between foreign and domestic policies. There is only one policy. A Muslim policy. And the bottom line of the Muslim policy is that Muslims get what they want. At any cost. Any price. Freedom, morality, loyalty, national values and human rights are dispensable now. Appeasing Muslims is not.

Appeasing Muslims had tied the free world in an infernal knot. Each country pressures its own citizens and other countries to do whatever Muslims want. This would be unjustifiable even if it worked, but the damnedest thing of all, is that it doesn't actually discourage Muslim violence. It actually encourages it. And why not? If countries pandered to murderers, rapists and robbers instead of putting them in prison-- would there be less murders, rapes and robberies. Or would there be more?

The only way we can justify our craven appeasement is through the belief in the discredited Blowback Theory of Muslim violence. The Blowback Theory holds that Muslim violence is only retaliatory. That every time Muslims kill people, it's only because they're retaliating for a wrong done to them. Whether that wrong be a Predator drone taking out a terrorist (who was only retaliating for being yodeled at), drawing a cartoon of an illiterate 7th century pedophile worshiped by a billion people with deficient morals, or some battle fought 600 years ago. Whatever it may be-- the Blowback Theory holds that Muslims are always in the right to kill us. And we're always in the wrong to defend ourselves against being killed.

The corollary to the Blowback Theory is the Infinite Muslim Terrorists Theory. The Infinite Muslim Terrorists Theory holds that every Muslim grievance creates new terrorists. Like an angel getting its wings every time a bell rings, the Infinite Muslim Terrorists Theory warns us that every time we offend Muslims, it bring forth new terrorists. And shooting them does no good. Because shooting terrorists only offends Muslims even more. And that generates still more terrorists. Kill a terrorist and four more take his place. And if the process keeps going, there will eventually be more Muslim terrorists in the world than there are Muslims, causing the entire world to implode into the event horizon of a singularity.

The paradox of the Infinite Muslim Terrorists Theory is that it insists that the vast majority of Muslims is peaceful, and yet threatens that every single one of those peaceful people can be converted into homicidal maniacs if we're not careful. And when combined with Blowback Theory, it puts the blame for the instant terrorist conversion on us. Like Gremlins that we're afraid of feeding after midnight, we take care to step lightly around Muslims, for fear that they will suddenly turn into monsters bent on killing us. Such thinking might be considered bigoted, but with Blowback Theory we know that if they do turn into homicidal monsters, it will be entirely 100 percent our fault.

Project this mode of conduct on a global scale, and this is what our foreign policy looks like. All our envoys to Islam. Our Muslims First foreign policy. Our retrofitting of policymaking at every level to accommodate the whims of the prophet's beard. And for all the cringing and crawling, appeasing and advocating, the violence continues to grow. Because you can end violence by taking a firm stand, not by falling to your knees.

Obama's policies are simple: He is aiding and abetting Muslim world domination. Watching our federal government is like watching either the clueless (some members of congress), or the enemy within.

Let's empower everyone but our own people.
As a matter of fact, let's be ashamed of our own people, our own nation and pound ourselves down into the dirt in reparation for imaginary crimes and misdemeanors.

This nation has gone nuts.. absolutely bonkers and nuts.

Henry Kissinger once said, "Today, the Americans will not accept UN troops on our soil but the day will come when they will welcome them." Hillary and Bill Clinton attended a conference in Cairo many years ago in which it was decided that the population of the Earth had to be drastically reduced (by billions). The powers behind the throne (whatever you call them - internationalists/one-worlders/4th Reich Nazis)want chaos and destruction, so that they can come and rule the entire planet. There is not much difference between who rises to the top of the Republican and Democrat Parties because they are puppets of the internationalists - otherwise they get eliminated one way or another. So either you believe our top leadership is crazy, or you believe this is a calculated and evil plot to create WWIII, mass destruction, mass death, and have a small handful of internationalists (international bankers? - the IMF, Hillary Clinton?) run the world. Of course, international bankers always are accused of being Zionists, but the center of the plot is to destroy Israel first, then America. So, the internationalists are more likely 4th Reich Nazis who went underground after WWII, and their descendents have been trying to take over ever since. See

Is Western civilization funding its own destruction by buying oil from Islamofascist petrostates?

It almost seems like Islam has more influence now, worldwide, than it ever has even at the zenith of its various localized caliphates.

Arius said...

The West is self hating and self destructive. The only positive development is that more people in the West are starting to understand and oppose it, although I don't think it is anywhere sufficient to reverse the trend.

To Anonymous,

This problem didn't begin with Obama. Obama merely continued what Bush began. It transcends politics, and you can bet that even if Sarah Palin becomes the next President of the USA, she will follow the same path.

It astonishes me, that people think bringing in a pro Israel candidate like Palin, will mean we will change our policies. How wrong they are. If Palin becomes President, they will see how wrong they were.

How long until one of Pak's nukes wanders off and ends up atomising some American city? I feel a wake-up moment is coming within the next 5 years - something that the world simply cannot ignore. Nuclear fire will surely play a part in this. In the same way that a blinding flash, a blast front and radiation brought an end to Japanese state Shinto, Islam will find that the use of nuclear technology will signal the limit of its capacity for unlimted aggression. This limit will take the form of an almighty, singular retaliation from its victim - a victim who will look at the rubble of an entire city and vow total revenge. We're are in the build-up phase now. The Karma for 1400 years of Jihad is about to return to the Muslim world; the world will seek to rebalance its energy from the psychic trauma that Islam has wrought. The rebalancing will be brought about by an operation that will bring joy to the Muslim world but then quick unending despair.

Brilliant piece, especially the Infinite Muslim Terrorists Theory.

Although I agree with most on this post, I will also remind my fellow earthlings to have faith. No human being WANTS to become a slave. None of us relish living under someone elses' rules, especially if they are severe. But, make no mistake: those humans whose thirst for power is unquenchable will murder ALL who keep them from attaining their status as God. They would joyfully stand upon a ruined earth, completely void of all others as long as he is crowned King Of the World.

Justice Breyer is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, thank G-d. John Roberts is the Chief Justice, thank G-d.

Greg RN said...

Thanks again Daniel, I will be squeezing my budget to donate to your efforts. Perhaps the "Weimarians" of the "Frankfurt School" fame believe they have accomplished their task, as Kruschev said about destroying us from within, or, is it, they don't anticipate an "American Spring". Perhaps it is their arrogance that will destroy them.

Greg, I appreciate it, but don't drain budgets. I appreciate the thought alone.

Very interesting that Barbara Bush's secretary was a Muslim from Kashmir (who now works for President Obama as a professional Muslim), just as Hillary's professional assistant is Huma somebody-or-other, a Saudi Muslim, who is married to Congressman Weiner. I guess there are no Gentile or Jewish women from Iowa or Tennessee who are qualified to hold these trust positions for our elites. /sarc

KosherWineGuy said...

You can say anything you want about Moslems but they are nothing if not insidious. Just look at the Saudi wife of Anthony Wiener. Previously, she was Hillary Clinton's aide (at the State Department?). And Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding.

Since the pregnant Mrs. Wiener was counting on being the wife of the next New York City Mayor, I am predicting her filing for divorce. After all, she hadn't intended to sign up for the job of "wife of unemployed New York Jew."

Then again, there is always the Moslem tradition of "honor killing." The question from the Moslem point of view, of course, is "How to decide which?"

And the AKParty of Erdogan's got through another term and states

"it's a victory for Quds and Gaza."

That just about says it all. Amazes me how truly Islamic countries say it how it is, yet the politicians and advisors of the West ignore it......oh, I was forgetting that Turkey was the European capital of culture and soon to be in the EU and is effectively the West. Lucky us. kate b

cornholio said...

Is Wiener still Jewish? Is his wife still Muslim? I believe in most Muslim states its against the law for Muslim women to marry infidels/kuffars. Considering the rabid, pervasive antisemitism in the holy Quran and Hadeeths it certainly would be a bizarre marriage. Was the marriage a Muslim ceremony? Or Jewish?

Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog said...

I'm not too sure Weiner was ever Jewish, as there's some question about his mother.

The marriage was performed by Bill Clinton. So make of that what you will.

Linda Rivera said...

This is NOT appeasement. The “Muslim First” policy is not to get Muslims to love us. The “Muslim First” policy is because Obama, Clinton, Soros and the US administration DESPISE Judaism and Christianity, HATE America and the free world, and LOVE and admire totalitarian Islam.

Muslim terrorists are adored. Global Egyptian terrorist, savage killer, Arafat was introduced to Israel as their “peace” partner. Arafat did exactly as was expected of him: he waged jihad against Israel’s Jews and relentlessly persecuted Arab Christians. Arafat had more Jewish blood on his hands than anyone since Hitler and was adored by ruling elites and the most invited foreign guest to the Clinton White House.

Linda Rivera said...

For years, the U.S. administration has taken the side of Muslims against non-Muslims. In 1999, on the side of the KLA Muslim terrorist organization, US/NATO waged ruthless war against Kosovos’s Christian Serbs on the basis of a PHONY massacre US/NATO knew never took place.

With very strong U.S. backing, French military and UN troops took the side of barbaric Muslim forces and waged war against African’s Ivory Coast Christians. Proudly conquering the Ivory Coast for Islam.

Which is the next country targeted by America, NATO and the UN for Islamic take over and how long is the list? Israel has always been at the top of the list.

cornholio said...

Would it be possible for Israel to consider forming a free, foreign legion?

Well, maybe not legion, considering its, ugly, historical connotations for Israel.

I'll bet Israel would be surprised at the numbers of people who would volunteer for such a force -- especially considering who it's enemies would be.

I hope no one takes any offense at this suggestion because none was intended. Well, except maybe for the Muslo-nazis -- they can all get stuffed.
