Obama lacking economic sense, insight and 4sight is the 4th foolish President in US history to sign a 4doomed Keynesian stimulus bill .
On February 18th an Egyptian administrative court made history by upholding an unprecedented government edict issued by the moderate, Christian friendly, anti-jihadist regime of President Abdel al-Sisi ordering the closing of 27,000 places of worship which were exclusively Moslem mosques (see). Why were none of the thousands of Coptic churches included in the edict? Was it fair that only mosques and no churches were closed?
President al-Sisi greeted by Pope Francis at the Vatican.
One dissonant voice on Facebook commenting on the ill-treatment of Moslems verses Christians under al-Sisi said: “Well done! Christians have lost the right to complain about their lesser status. Egypt is no longer a Muslim Nation -- it has turned Christian, or so it seems!” Another dissonant voice at the time was so outraged at the mosques' closings that he accused al-Sisi of being a crypto-Christian who secretly converted to the faith while serving as defense minister under radical Moslem Brotherhood President Morsi. For proof of his theory the commenter pointed to al-Sisi's historic visit on Christmas Eve to Egypt's largest Coptic church, a first for an Egyptian head of state. Also mentioned was al-Sisi's tight alliance with Coptic Pope Tawadros II, an enthusiastic supporter of his pro-Coptic regime. To this couldd be added al-Sisi's bombing of ISIS targets in Libya shortly after these butchers beheaded 21 innocent Copts while praising Allah (see).
Could the angry commenter be right? Is al-Sisi an apostate from Islam making him the first Christian head of Egypt since its conquest by Moslems 14 centuries ago? We don't know. Until there's hard proof of al-Sisi's conversion a more likely explanation is that he's a real, genuine Egyptian nationalist (more so than were Sadat and Mubarak) patriotically carrying out his responsibilities as President to protect the safety, security and property of all Egyptians regardless of faith. And that the closing of 27,000 mosques, verses not a single church, is due solely to their actual (or potentially) radical nature headed by extremist clerics poisoning their congregations with violence and hate against Christians and the Egyptian state. But that not one single church was closed (large or small) tells us that al-Sisi regards Christianity as more truly a religion of God's peace, and more beneficial to Egypt, than is the Islamic faith that he's courageously trying to reform against a growing storm.
As I was looking through my Townhall archives today I came across this piece about the Boston Marathon Bombing. Inspired by Arianna Huffington I thought it would amuse you.

(ripped off from Mondoweiss)
Obama to Iran: if you like your nukes you can keep your nukes. And we'll sweeten the deal by lifting sanctions so you can keep (and continue to expand) your Islamic empire, if you like that too.
What Obama didn't say-and knows to be true as it would make him look like the biggest fool since Hitler deceived Chamberlain-is that even if Iran becomes 100% transparent about its domestic nuclear program; even if the terrorist mullahs open up every inch of their vast $100 billion nuclear infrastructure to the most rigorous UN inspection and verification process, it won't stop them from getting the bomb. Why? Because just as the Saudis can easily acquire nukes from Pakistan (which they don't want to do but will if Iran goes nuclear, see) the mullahs can easily acquire them from their "Axis of Evil" partners in Stalinist North Korea-the worst nuclear proliferators on the planet. And if anyone is dumb enough to doubt this then they need to recall that just one year after the Norks detonated their first nuclear bomb they were hard at work (possibly with Iran) on building a nuclear weapons facility for Bashar Assad in Syria. This project was the "largest act of nuclear proliferation in history," said David Asher, George Bush's coördinator for North Korea (see). The plant, however, was destroyed by Israel* (see).
*Because of the plant's illegal nature Assad never filed a complaint with the UN about Israel violating Syria's airspace and destroying it.
THE IRAN-NORTH KOREA PACT
The US has no way to shut down Iran's pathway to develop nukes in N.Korea.
In fact, what Obama knows and wants kept hidden as it completely destroys his credibility of halting Iran's march to the bomb is that in 2012 Iran signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement with North Korea (see and see). These two Axis of Evil states are evily working together on missile technology (for ICBMs which Iran has developed), and most likely nuclear weapons technology. Moreover, there is evidence that Assad (the worst mass murderer of the 21st century who used chemical weapons on his people) is still pursuing nuclear weapons with the Norks (see). Frighteningly, Iranian scientists are reported to have been present at both of North Korea's nuclear detonations (see).
Radical terrorist jihadist Iran's nuclear ambitions cannot be constrained or controlled by any agreement-no more than was Hitler and the Nazis controlled by the Munich Accord before the outbreak of World War II. The genocidal mullahs are staying the course to a deadly, mass death-dealing nuclear armed state, and nothing can stop it but regime change. What we heard in the Rose Garden yesterday was a pathetic political smoke and mirrors charade for 2016 and his legacy. The goal of the negotiations was never to prevent Iran from getting the bomb, but to make the great amateur look like what he is not and can never be: a statesman. Barack Obama is indeed the worst, weakest and most dangerously mendacious president in US history. Hoax and Change will not end until Obama's gone from the White House. And between now and then God help us.
