Obama appoints fox to guard the hen house

Amerikan FlagDecember 6, 2015

Another hideous person rises through the ranks of the Obama administration: Mr. Robert Malley. He is cut from the same cloth as many of those that Obama surrounds himself with. In other words, a person who hates America and sympathizes with our enemies. And now he is in charge of the administration’s absurd, ridiculous, disingenuous, pathetic, uncommitted effort to combat ISIS.

First a bit of back story.

Malley was born in 1963 to parents who were communists, Islamist sympathizers, and Jew haters.  His mother worked for the UN delegation of the National Liberation Front, an anti-American political party. His Egyptian-born father played a key role in the Egyptian communist party and was a confidante of Yasser Arafat. Both parents were rabidly anti-Israel, critics of “Western imperialism,” and supporters of a number of revolutionary “liberation movements” (especially the “Palestinian” cause), among other egregious affiliations and views.

Although born in the United States, Malley grew up in France. As a young adult, he attended Harvard Law School during the same time Obama was a student there. A few years later, in 2007, Obama appointed Malley to serve as his foreign policy advisory for his presidential campaign. Per a report at Atlas Shrugs, Malley was fired the following year after his “notorious ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist and anti-Israel groups” were exposed.

In 2008, AT Editor Ed Lasky wrote a piece that shed additional light on Malley and is as sobering to read today as it was nearly eight years ago. Perhaps even more so, as we look back on the evil Obama has wrought.

Drilling down further we have Robert Malley. He was part of the American negotiating team that dealt with Yasser Arafat at Camp David. He has presented a revisionist history of those negotiations since then: presenting a view that blames Israel for the failures of the negotiations….

He has spent years representing the Palestinian point of view, co-writing a series of anti-Israel articles with Hussein Agha-a former Arafat adviser. Palestinian advocate…Malley has also called settlements “colonies” — implicitly condemning Israel as a “colonial” state. His writings have been so critical of Israel that the media-monitoring group CAMERA has a “dossier” on him….

In another piece written that same year, Lasky provided an excellent review and takedown of several of Malley’s op-ed pieces and described Malley’s political objectives as “a radical reshaping of decades of American foreign policy and a shredding of the role of morality in the formulation of American policy. These policies would strengthen our enemies, empower dictatorships, and harm our allies.”

And indeed, every word that Lasky wrote has come to fruition.

But Malley would not exert influence simply by writing vile op-eds. Soon enough Obama would appoint him to key positions in his administration. Discover the Networks reports:

After President Obama’s 2012 reelection, he appointed Malley to serve as his senior advisor for Iraq-Iran-Syria and the Gulf states. Obama pledged, however, that Malley would have no involvement in issues related to Israel and the Palestinians.

On February 18, 2014, it was announced that Malley was formally returning to the White House to serve as a senior director at the National Security Council (NSC), where he would be in charge of managing relations between the United States and its allies in the Persian Gulf. In March 2015, Obama appointed Malley to direct the NSC’s policy in relation to the entire Middle East, including Israel.

And now Malley has risen through the ranks once again. Judicial Watch reports:

A radical foreign policy adviser fired by President Obama years ago for meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is back as the administration’s new czar in charge of countering the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS).

The White House downplayed the new appointment by burying it deep in a press briefing delivered at a Paris hotel during the recent climate summit….

Seven years into this madness, and the feeling of shock never fades.

Flashback–Archbishop of Mosul: ‘I Lost My Diocese to Islam…You in The West Will Become The Victims of Muslims’

The Catholic archbishop of Mosul, Iraq, who lost his diocese to the Islamic State last year and is now in exile in Erbil (Iraqi Kurdistan), warned that the suffering in Iraq was only a prelude of what European and Western Christians will “suffer in the near future,” and stressed that the West is endangering itself by welcoming “an ever-growing number of Muslims.”

He also emphasized that while the West says “all men are equal,” Islam “does not say that all men are equal,” and “their values” are not our values.

“Our sufferings today are the prelude of those that you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future,” said Archbishop Emil Nona, as reported in Corriere Della Sera on Aug. 9, 2014.

“I lost my diocese,” said the archbishop.  “The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive.”

“Please, try to understand us,” he said. “Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever-growing number of Muslims.”

“You are also in danger,” he continued.  “You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles.

“You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal,” said the archbishop.  “Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.”

Emil Shimoun Nona is the archbishop for the Chaldean Catholic diocese of Mosul, which is in northern Iraq. The Chaldean Catholic Church is an Eastern Rite church in full communion with the bishop of Rome, Pope Francis, and the Catholic Church worldwide.

Reportedly, all Christians have fled Mosul, many of them into Jordan. The Islamic State jihadists told the Christians  in Mosul in June 2014 to either convert to Islam, pay a tax or be killed, reported the New York Times.

Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city and has been a home to Christians for 2,000 years.

The Islamic State is the group that is responsible for the Nov. 13 massacre in Paris, France, which killed at least 129 people and injured 352 people.
