Top Obama Officials Now Calling Jerusalem "Al-Quds" (Video)

Top Obama advisor John Brennan talks about his love for “al-Quds.”

Listen to this nut…

John Brenna talks about his favorite city “al-Quds” and praises the Middle East for the freedom to practice your faith(?)

“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me that whatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

    I too was wondering how he saw the ‘majesty’ of the Hajj, if he were not a muslim? How did he see the wonder of people being able to practice their faiths in Saudi Arabia, in a country that bans Jews from its interior, and doesn’t allow freedom of religion to anyone but muslims? Same with Egypt, where they just banned Israeli doctors from attending a medical conference (wouldn’t want the best doctors to appear at such a conference, cause they’re Jews). And how do those Saudis serve as guardians of the ‘holy’ cities of Mecca/Medina? Do they allow free access with normal security to all persons regardless of faith, as do the Italians and Israelis? Or do they engage in religious apartheid? If the repubs ever take over the house and/or senate they should demand his resignation and if not, they should zero out his salary and the salaries of his staff.

    BTW Al Quds is an abbreviation of Bayit Al MuQuddash the Arabicization of the Hebrew Bais Ha Mikdash which in English translates to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem (you know the Jewish Temple that Solomon built recorded in the OT, and also refers to the Second Temple that was built after the return of the Jews from Babylonian exile following Cyrus the Great’s decree in the 5 Century BCE. So merely calling Jerusalem AlQuds implicitly acknowledges Jewish sovereignty over all of Jerusalem. Solomon wasn’t a muslim, he didn’t pray towards Mecca and didn’t Hajj there. Neither has any other Jew in their history.

    MR. BRENNAN threads through BOTH administrations…
    as does Mitchell
    as does Jones
    as do MANY MANY bad actors…. Obama kept a TON of people from the Bush Admin on especially as it relates to the ME & Israel.

    if people made that clear – instead of acting like this happened magically when Obamanable Snowjobman plopped his wicked ass in that seat… (TOP OBAMA OFFICIAL!) I would have far more respect for all the bloggy outrage.

    The R’s are AS GUILTY.

    Moreso. Because they PRETENDED to be our “friends”

    However I seem to be the only one willing to state that openly.

    Word is the big contributors to the DNC and Obama who are Jewish are gone. I’d like to see a poll of American Jews who voted for Obama and 78% of them did. Had McCain received 50% of the Jewish vote in New York and Florida, Obama would still be a Senator. These useful idiots brought this on themselves and on us.

    There were two obstacles to the annihilation of Israel – our military and the Israeli Defence Forces. With Obama as Commander in Chief, the first of these two is gone.

    not that long ago an “infidel” working in saudia arabia was to be executed for being
    caught on the wrong road – as in the muslim
    only road. he was rushing to be with his wife and i think he was in a cab [or something] that
    should have been on the road for infidels. how
    many under-cover converts are busily influencing
    opinion while witholding some serious facts about themselves and their beliefs.

    My understanding is that the United States has been under Marshall Law since after the 1st Great Depression of 1929. Trashing the Constitution by not backing the dollar with gold & silver and fraudulently allowing the Federal Reserve to print unlimited paper money (and charging us interest) was the beginning of the end. Until we correct those 2 HUGE mistakes, we have no freedom. Prepare for the collapse of the U.S. dollar. Check-mate comes to my mind.

    You forgot the 3rd, but most important obstacle-God!

    God is removing any doubt as to who is protecting Israel. First, God is allowing Israel’s enemies to arm themselves to the teeth; Second, God is removing Israel’s only ally who could protect them; Last, God will reveal Himself to Israel (and the world!) when her enemies come to wipe her off the face of the map! Let it be known, it ain’t going to happen. Israel lives forever!

    If you go to the “Al-Quds Day” link in the post, “Al-Quds” refers to “the oppressed” and specifically those in “occupied” East Jerusalem who are “oppressed.”

    This is what comes of this “diplomat’s” psuedo-“education” in the Middle East. The old saying goes, “When in Rome, do like the Romans.” This guy is living that, only he seems to be either an Islamo-phile (obsessive lover of Islam) or a Muslim. The Won sure knows how to pick ’em!!

    When the IDF break out their nukes, we will see if masses of armor and Arab troops are an asset or a liability. The Israelis still hold the Golan Heights and have an anti-ballistic missile system.

    You might want to look at the 1973 aerial photographs of Mitla Pass. Large numbers of vehicles are not always the key to victory

    I checked out in the F4E at George AFB in 1969 with a group of Mirage pilots who pull off a stunningly successful campaign in the 6-Day war of 1967. These weren’t supermen. Their enemies were, and still are, third rate.

    My last trip to Iran was in 1975, when I delivered an aircraft to the Shah’s AF. Their pilots spanned the gamut from marginal to awful.

    If God has had a hand in determining the defense of Israel, he has a consistent record. The Israelis have beaten the Arabs in 1948–49, 1956, 1967, 1973–74, and 1982. Israel is 5 and 0. Arabs, 0 for 5.

    One must never underestimate the power of wining and dining and flattering treats on bureaucrats.

    Americans are so sloppy these days, too many are total suckers for a fancy banquet and flattering fawning treatment and gifts, something the Saudis really know how to lavish on (easy with slaves), especially State Department officials.

    Patton was right, never eat your enemy’s food.

    The Saudis actually abide by this ancient warning better than we do. And flattery is a form of hatred (it’s always used to get something out of you.)

    Hi BabbaZee!!

  • TalkinKamel

    The strictures against breaking bread with one’s enemies, and not eating “fairy” food—food offered by creatures who don’t have your best interests in mind—are very old, Wanumba, and make a great deal of sense; I believe they also tie in with the (forgotten) sin of Gluttony. Don’t eat that apple, no matter how yummy that snake says it is! You might be, literally, biting off more than you can chew!

    Just look at our State Department, under both Obama, and, yes, Bush! (This stuff has been going on for a long time, it didn’t start with Obama.)

    {{Hiya, Wanumba, hiya, Babba!}}

    After all, luxury, slave-produced comfort and wealth are the reverse-mirror image of Islam; the opposite side of the stern adherence to the Koran, strict mullah/imam; think of the gross excesses of the Ottoman Empire: the harems, vast battalions of slaves, the banguets, harems, dancing girls; and think of today’s wealthy oil shieks, with their gold-plated bathrooms, ridiculous, overdone cities, like Dubai, and, yes, their harems. . .

    Many people, all over the world, want to get in on this wealth and luxury; the twin sins of gluttony and envy. . .

    (Thus endeth the sermon for today!)

    Please recall that this guy, along with many others, is a Bush holdover-reshuffle. The bureaucracy in Washington is rife with globalists and communist-socialist elite-wanna-bes. The government is constantly using and reusing the same old idiots, who become more idiotic as the years go by… but they’re so experienced, ya know, they have so much to offer to the discourse! I say, ptptptptpt! (raspberry)
