The flip side of Barack ******* Obama's Muslim coin

By Amil Imani of American Thinker.

Mr. Obama, don't betray my people.

It looks like Mr. Obama may well be the next resident of the White House. It also looks like my people are going to be betrayed once again by a badly misguided American president. Jimmy Carter helped give birth to the virulent Shiite Islamism by forbidding the Shah of Iran to crush the bloodthirsty Ayatollah Khomeini and his band of rabid Islamists. Now, Mr. Obama intends to confer legitimacy on the illegitimate child, the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Jimmy Carter, the self-appointed touring ambassador of bad-mouthing America must be rejoicing in the prospect of Mr. Obama's presidency. Mr. Obama holds the promise of not only carrying on the Carterian misguided policies, but taking them to their very ruinous end.

Jimmy Carter did his thing and my people died. In no time at all, the vicious Mullahs gutted the Iranian armed forces and executed many of its most capable officers. Saddam Hussein watched gleefully as the Iranian military disintegrated, and found the opportunity to carry out his Pan Arabism ambition by attacking Iran. Some eight years of barbaric butchery killed and maimed millions on both sides, gutted the vibrant Iranian economy, and visited misery of all sorts upon the Iranian people.

Read it all here. But first, this passage is the one that gets my vote for the money quote:

Mr. Obama, in your meteoric rise to power, you found it expedient to throw your wonderful grandmother under the bus, so to speak. She has been joined by many others, most recently General Clark. Now, who else are the people you intend to steamroll over to service your personal ambition? Mr. Obama, I repeat, if elected president, don't betray my people.
