Just last week Barack Obama was on “60 Minutes” celebrating the progress in North Africa where Islamists recently took over Mali and where Al-Qaeda groups just murdered our ambassador in Libya.

I do think that over the long term we are more likely to get a Middle East and North Africa that is more peaceful, more prosperous and more aligned with — with our interests.

Now this…
Islamists in Mali just destroyed another ancient Sufi Shrine.

Reuters reported:

Heavily armed Islamist fighters in Mali destroyed the tomb of a local Sufi saint near Timbuktu on Saturday, witnesses said, the latest attack on traditional shrines in the rebel-occupied north.

The destruction of the tomb of Almirou Mahamane Assidiki in Goundam came just months after a number of other shrines in the UNESCO-listed city of Timbuktu, 90 km (55 miles) to the south, were reduced to rubble, underscoring the threat to the region’s ancient heritage from the rebels’ extremist ideology.

“Last night they arrived in several vehicles and told the elders that the tomb of Saint Almirou would be destroyed,” Aliou Ahmadou Toure, a resident in Goundam, told Reuters.

Local people tried to protest but were powerless to protect the shrine from men wielding shovels and pick-axes, Toure said.

“Some armed men surrounded the cemetery while a second group, chanting “God is Great”, destroyed the tomb inside.”

A local politician who was also in the town on Saturday confirmed the incident.

It was not immediately clear which of the Islamist groups controlling Mali’s north was involved in the incident but they have previously said they are protecting Islam from idol worship.

  1. “Heavily armed Islamist fighters in Mali destroyed the tomb of a local Sufi saint”

    Unusual? Not really

    “the latest attack on traditional shrines in the rebel-occupied north”

    And of course there were the ancient shrines destroyed in Afghanistan. And others.

    None of this is unusual – it’s what Islamists do.

    And they don’t care if you are republican or democrat. Or whether you support Obama or not. Or whether you are conservative or liberal. They want to destroy the symbols of your beliefs and kill you if you resist.

    We have been given all the fair warning anyone could hope to have.

  2. There is an urgency to act to end the suffering of the people of Mali and to prevent a similar situation that would be even more complicated in the Sahel and the rest of the world,” Malian Prime Minister Cheick Modibo Diarra told the General Assembly.

    France, Mali’s former colonial power, called on Wednesday for the U.N. Security Council to adopt as soon as possible a resolution enabling military intervention in northern Mali, a call that has been supported by some West African nations that fear Mali’s chaos will spread beyond its borders.

    French President Francois Hollande warned that Mali’s territorial integrity should be restored as soon as possible and that any lost time would only complicate matters.

    He said he wanted a resolution on Mali to be approved within weeks. France has ruled out intervening directly, but has promised logistical and intelligence support. Continued..

  3. African American voters, I wonder who among them are voting for Obama, as I type this I laugh, but the situation in Africa is dire and I would suppose some of the voters aren’t even aware of how the children are being taught there:

    Unbelievable.

    TSA Officer: ‘Commonplace’ for Colleagues to Steal from Luggage

    VIDEO

    ABC News: A convicted TSA security officer says he was part of a “culture” of indifference that allowed corrupt employees to prey on passengers’ luggage and personal belongings with impunity, thanks to lax oversight and tip-offs from TSA colleagues. “It was very commonplace, very,” said Pythias Brown, a former TSA officer at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey who admits he stole more than $800,000 worth of items from luggage and security checkpoints over a four-year period. “It was very convenient to steal,” he said. 29 Sep 2012, 10:09 AM PDT 8 post a comment

    Now let’s translate from weasely talk to —> what Hussain means , ok ??

    I do think —> The koran tells me
    over the long term —> eventually
    we are more likely —> jihadies are sure to
    get a Middle East and North Africa —> convert the ME and NA
    more peaceful —> totally sharia compliant
    more prosperous —> economically ruined
    more aligned with — with our interests —> free of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs etc .

    When will we stop pretending that this man is an American just because he claims to be an American citizen ?

  6. Oh dear!

  7. Actually, I hope they destroy all muslim shrines. Then burn all Korans. Then somebody needs to convert the savages to Christianity or Buddhism, or something that isn’t rabidly insane.

  8. First line in Wiki tells us Sufi is a branch of Islam. That’s how much tolerance they have for ANYONE’S beliefs, including their own co-religionists. If they wiped out every Jew, Hindi and Christian they would immediately turn on each other.

    In #4 Patty rightly points out how blind it is for African American voters to vote for Obama whose policies and whose media knowingly turn a blind eye to such atrocities, and hope we don’t notice.

    My understanding is it was Islamists who sold Africans off to America across the Atlantic, and who sold Africans off to Islamic North African through Timbuktu across the Sahara, and who sold Africans off to the Middle East through the Horn of Africa and through Kenya. I wonder which side of the slave trade Obama’s immediate ancestors were on in those recent transactions. Islam has used black Africa as a human game preserve since antiquity.

  9. the rise of islamomarxism is in line with obama’s interest.

  10. If one looks to 1980 as an historical example we see that fake polls from the MSM have NO EEFECT on the actual vote and if anything may actually motivate Republican voters and demotivate Democrat voters.

    Obama WIL NOT win this election without winning Independents. Don’t know why Team Romney isn’t making a bigger deal of this.

  11. Strange, yet they always have billboard sized posters and pictures of leaders, ‘martyrs’ (see murderers), etc.. Are these greater than their prophet, who cannot be depicted (recent, there were many depictions before).
