Just put these two stories from Weasel Zippers together, let them rattle around your cranium, and then gasp in horror at the stupidity of what the Obama administration is considering.
Fox News reports:
A U.S. NATO commander does not rule out an Al Qaeda presence in the Libya opposition against Muammar al-Qaddafi.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said on Tuesday that the Obama administration has not ruled out arming Libya’s rebels as an option for trying to end Muammar Gaddafi’s 41-year rule.
Sooooo let me just get this straight, the Libyan rebels may very well be Islamic Al Qaeda nutjobs, according to the U.S. government, and yes they’re considering arming them. Huh?
Wasn’t this supposed to be a humanitarian mission? That’s like putting Chuck Norris in charge of the peace corps. It just doesn’t make sense.
And think about this- we may arm Muslim radicals in a country where a minority population of Christians are already in hiding and living in fear.
Hey Obama administration here’s the math: Islamic nutjobs + arms = Genocide of Christians. Our last two ventures into the Middle East ended with the arrest, persecution and/or slaughter of Christians in Afghanistan and Iraq. And now we’re going to arm Islamic militants in Libya? Do we not learn? I guess they’re just Christians though. They kinda’ have it coming.

This confirms the expose from July 2010. Cfr. http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/obama-saudi-operative-to-facilitate.html

Personally, I think putting Chuck Norris in charge of the Peace Corps is a KICK-A$$ idea!

And since when did this administration give a flying rats ass about Christians being persecuted? Have you heard any condemnation of the Muslims burning 30 churches in Ethiopia last week? This list goes on at persecution.org

In his speech in Cairo, Obama was self-referential in telling his audience (Paraphrase) As I said in Ankara, America will never be at war with Islam.
B Hussein O appears to think it fine that Islam is a war with Christians and Jews and deserves our support.
I'm beginning to think he does not make Solomon seem a dunce by comparison

Sounds like some of our political leaders weren't paying attention in the 80's. Let's see:
* Arming rebels against a powerful aggressor
* Not having any strategy on what to do once that powerful aggressor is out.
That is what happened in Afghanistan when we armed rebels against the Soviets. Those "noble rebels" fighting for peace are now Al Queda. I guess what they say is true, those who do not learn from history or doomed to repeat it.

Let's just be clear first though, they haven't *ruled out* giving arms to the rebels. They have also admitted that they need to understand all the various viewpoints in the rebel camps before they would arm them, since they know there are different reasons.
I would give this much more credibility if the first quoted source was a reputable news agency, and not Fox News.

Our country has a long history of giving aid to Islamists, usually during Republican administrations. We armed the Iranians during Iran Contra and the groups now known as Al Qaida and the Taliban during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Some of the Kurds we've supported in Iraq have ties to Al Qaida. Our government's actions in Iraq have also emboldened Islamists there, even if we haven't actually given them any assistance. Obama would only be the latest in a long line of American Presidents to do this, and that's assuming that he doesn't think better of it and decide not to arm them.

Franklin Graham's Warning !
Franklin Graham's warning of coming persecution of Christians echoes what his mother Ruth and father Billy have clearly stated. Re Ruth, see search engines including Google for "Letter from Mrs. Billy Graham." To see Billy's words about the worldwide increase in house churches, Google "Famous Rapture Watchers – Addendum."
Since Franklin blamed the Obama administration for his own National Day of Prayer snub and persecution, and since he accused "Christian" Barack Hussein Obama of "giving Islam a pass," readers can get some rare insights into Obama and his fellow travelers by Googling and Yahooing "Obama Fulfilling the Bible," "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "Prof. F. N. Lee's ISLAM IN THE BIBLE (PDF)," "Mikey Weinstein, Jesus-Basher," and "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman."
For a rare look at the 181-year-old endtime belief which has long neutralized millions of American patriots by promising them an “imminent rapture” off earth – which has diverted them away from being prepared to stand against all enemies, domestic as well as foreign – Google “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty,” "Famous Rapture Watchers," “Pretrib Rapture Diehards,” “Edward Irving is Unnerving,” “Pretrib Rapture Secrecy,” and “Pretrib Rapture – Hidden Facts” – all by the author of the bestselling nonfiction book “The Rapture Plot” (the most accurate documentation on the pretrib rapture’s long hidden but recently uncovered birth in Britain in 1830 – see Armageddon Books). Also Google “Stamping Out Harold Camping.”

Rick, I think this administration is very much in favor of empowering Muslim radicals.
Andrew, the arming of Muslims has happened mostly under Republican administrations because the Democrat administrations were busy doing nothing. See Carter (hostages) and Clinton (Lewinski) for reference. I don't support the arming that has been done. As with so many things it does, the government has demonstrated countless times its incompetence in judging potential allies.

I can't figure out how, as the Europeans can't get out of Afghanistan fast enough, they jump in with both feet into Libya. If you replaced the name "Bush" with "Obama" and went back eight years, there would be hell to pay.

OBAMA SUPPORTS PUBLIC DEPRAVITY
(& supports the “rights” of youngsters to view it!)
Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair.” After recovering from the uncensored photos (!), Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” on the “ucmpage” listing (even Jesus told Judas to hurry up – John 13:27). Also Yahoo “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.” See all of this before the predicted California earthquake happens a la Rev.16:19 (“the cities of the nations fell”) – and before hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts and other disasters occur! The fast-moving goal of Gaydom is to quietly sneak its depravity on to every Main Street on earth while normal folks stay asleep and do nothing. I wonder how soon San Francisco's underground saint – San Andreas – will get a big jolt from what goes on over his head in Madam Nancy Pelosi's brothel district in front of children. Not one to mince words, Jesus said in Mark 9:42 that anyone hurting a child in any way deserves to be hanged and have his body thrown into the ocean! It's far from coincidental that the more America elevates gays and other violence (see the predicted days of "Lot" and "Noah" in Luke 17), the more the cost of gas, food etc. goes up! If America is smart, it will pick up the big dust-covered book everyone owns and almost never reads – no, not the Sears catalog – and find out that the One who made the universe has some rights too! (Also Google "Obama Fulfilling the Bible.")
PS – New pro-life slogans: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!” & "Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!"
(Obama and his porn-protecting California friends – including Brown and Pelosi – did NOT approve of this message.)
