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.”

    So what he said al Quds you racist idiots. Its a shame this is supposed to be a religious site. Oh thats righ, the same religion used by one group of people to enslave millions and gas their own ethnic bretheren (European Jews) just to turn around and become slaves to them… Pathetic

  • Andreas K.

    Realist, you’re the only idiot I see here.

    Racist? Where is the racism? Mohammedans are now a race? Or is it because we don’t like Obama’s policies?

    Go back to the rock you crawled out from.

    You want realism? Open your eyes commie. Your left BS has never worked and always leads to Stalin.

    Then again, I’m looking forward to signing the death warrants of a couple of people (who’ve really pissed me off in the past), once the war starts.

    Still need a Letter of Marque…

    So, tell us, “realist”, what race is “Islam?”

    What race is Adam Gadahn? John Walker Lindh, “Johnny Taliban?” The two American women arrested recently for Jihad activities? Richard Reid, the Shoe Bomber? What race were the Mameluks?

    And, speaking of racism, what were the origins of the international African slave trade, and what group was enslaving, and making war, on blacks in Darfur?

    Howdy TK and Howdy Shalom BabbaZee!

    Speaking of the diplomatic strategy of food, guess what son reported straight from the Holy Land this week? This is important, it’s the facts on the ground in Jerusalem.

    It’s hooo-moose, not humus.

  • TalkinKamel

    And speaking of wining, dining and flattery. . . a while back Hugh, over at jihad watch, wrote an article about how mosques use the lure of food to coax people to come to their “Interfaith” fests. He pointed out that, without the lure of chicken, pita bread and baklava, a lot of the attendees probably would never have shown up.

    God bless your son, Wanumba!

    hooo-moose akhbar!

    Realist, if you care about slavery, you might want to educate yourself on the way Muslims have promoted the institution more than anyone else and still practice it today. Educate yourself on how Arabs treat black Africans.

    Then, try to get into Mecca to see that “holy mosque” that Brennan’s “partners” are guarding.

    Then look into how Christians ended the transatlantic slave trade and led abolitionist movements in the name of Christianity.

    Then educate yourself on the actual religious views of the Nazis.

    Then, please tell us what “race” Islam is. And how it’s racist to criticize Mr. Brennan’s highly unusual designation for the place that virtually everybody knows as “Jerusalem”—a place mentioned many times in the Bible but not in the Koran.

    So what he said al Quds you racist idiots.

    Yeah, that’s a reminder that Islam is heavily biased to and favors Arabs above all others, and specifically Saudi Arabs. All other Muslims are lower in quality. No translation of the Koran into local languages is acceptable – the only version that correctly qualifies is in … Arabic. Just ask Ghaddafi – it’s a major peeve of his that the Saudis don’t consider him “Arab,” so he spends a lot of time trying at everyone else’s expense to prove his equivalent Muslimness.
    It’s EASY for a Saudi Arab to get to Mecca, and get the elite and honored title of “El Haji and the henna-ed hair to advertize (boast) one’s special achievement, but the average Muslim in Indonesia or Mali or Uzbekistan has no hope of achieving that “works,” and by that any “status” in the pecking order.

    Islam favors the Saudis and the rich.

  • Radegunda

    Realist, also check out those Nazi salutes that the “Army of Allah” (Hezbollah) is doing in the picture on the next post.

    Is that “chai” as in “tea” or “chai” as in “bribe?”

    A reminder that Jimmah Carter gushed over dictators’ food, entertainment … and their gorgeous elegant wives. He was totally disarmed by a swank meal with servants and linen and nice china.

    Talk about easy.

    Better go hungry than eat a duplicitous man’s food. Better to share a stale crust of bread and a cup of water with an honest man than caviar and filet from someone who is leeching off the hard work of others.

  • TalkinKamel

    Amen, Wanumba!

    Just an observation, but too many Boomers seem to be ruled by creature comforts, as witness the boom in “foodies” and obsessing about cooking and eating. (Not that people shouldn’t cook well, or care about what they eat—but I think you know what I mean. . . )

    And they’re obsessed about such things in ways that our supposedly materialist, souless forefathers back in the 50’s really weren’t. Unfortunately, such obsessions (as well as sex, drink, drugs, etc.) give one’s enemies, and flatterers (like there’s any difference between the two?) a deadly weapon to use against you. As witness the pathetic spectacle of Jimmuh carter, and the dictators. No one should be that easy. . .

    (Hmmm, I thought it was “Chai” as in “life”, but I like the tea interpretation! I am the world’s worst Hebrew student!)

    “…the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

    During the 19-year occupation of the eastern part of Jerusalem by Jordan until its liberation by Israel in the 1967 Six Day War, the Muslims destroyed and desecrated Jewish holy sites, including cemeteries, synagogues and schools – against international agreement. Garbage was heaped up at the Western Wall and tombstones paved latrines and footpaths.

    Since it’s liberation and unification by Israel, Jerusalem – not the racist, apartheid al-Quds – is freely open to all religions. May unified Jerusalem under Israel be for an eternity.

    re: [I’ve never heard anyone refer to
    Jerusalem as anything but Jerusalem]

    evidently, neither had Hitler & the Grand Mufti of JERUSALEM..

    fyi: TGMoJ was Arrafat’s uncle..

    and surprise surprise not, another Hussein BC dispute, go figure..


  • bg


    just a thought flashing around in what’s left of my brain..

    perhaps they’re trying to tell US something
    without having to come out & say it directly..

    you know what i mean..

    ie: “Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America”

    ie: “WHATEVER we once were, we are not longer a Christian nation”

    ie: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    not to mention many other things like dropping charges against terrorists, the black panthers, and forging alliances with terrorist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood (which are is collective brains behind AQ et al collective brawn).. and so much more that an arrow would have major competition pointing at Obama as an enemy infiltrator.. gah!!

    etc, etc, etc..

    We have a international communication quandry.
    I think link-sensi bg should be put on it – post haste!

    “Wakate waote ni wakate wa chai.”
    (“Anytime is tea time.” Swahili)

    (And ps. about the hedonistic nature of today’s society – it’s so true. Too many easy suckers for this sort of manipulation and inticement.)

  • wanumba

    then bg wouldn’t have to be stuck in the rut of “gah” … “nuts” “gah” for the rest of the day.

    chai !

  • TalkinKamel

    “Anytime is tea time”—I like that!:)

    (Yes, we need a simultaneous international interpreter, or something like. . . )

    bg, I fear you might be on to something. Changing America indeed. . .

  • wanumba

    Jerusalem has been known as Jerusalem since BEFORE David captured it around 1010 BC.

    That’s MORE than three thousand years of “Jerusalem.” Few cities in the world can match it for historical consistency.

    “Al-Quds” thus is neo-colonialist rhetoric of intent of conquest.
