Palin: Obama Can’t See Egypt and Libya from His House (Updated)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 12, 2012

It seems that Sarah Palin felt the same frustrations that many other conservatives were feeling as the events of yesterday, September 11, 2012, unfolded.  It’s most apparent that while “Rome is burning, President Obama is fiddling” or playing golf, or appearing on the Letterman show or fundraising or declining to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu.  The following was posted to Palin’s Facebook page overnight and in approximately six hours it has generated 59,400+ “likes”,  8,800 comments, and been “shared”  in excess of 9,300 times.  .

UPDATE:   Palin’s post has been up for approximately 18 hours now and it has generated 139,866 “likes”, 17.753 comments, and been “shared”  20,930 times. Whether readers of her Facebook page agree or disagree with Sarah Palin’s statement, the events have obviously evoked many responses regarding the situation in the Middle East.

Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy? It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one. – Sarah Palin

Gov. Palin’s caution over embracing the ‘New Egypt’ is justified

Posted by joshpainter on February 16, 2011

While the left accuses Sarah Palin of not being “ready for prime time” because of her remarks about Egypt, the early signs of what a post-Mubarak society in that land may look like indicate that the caution she expressed about whether the U.S. should embrace the Egyptian revolution is justified.

In an interview with CBN’s David Brody, Gov. Palin warned that we should not put America’s stamp of approval on the “New Egypt” until we know who’s going to fill the void:

“Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood? We should not stand for that, or with that, or by that. Any radical Islamists. No, that is not who we should be supporting and standing by … we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.”

Aaron Goldstein comments on the makeup of the committee the Egyptian military has appointed to draw up the country’s new constitution:

While the panel includes a member of the Muslim Brotherhood there are scarcely any Coptic Christians on the committee while women have been left off the committee altogether.

The exclusion of Coptic Christians is particularly galling when one considers the New Year’s Massacre of Copts in Alexandria which resulted in the deaths of 21 people. It seems the Egyptian military and the Muslim Brotherhood are determined to keep Coptic Christians even more marginalized in a post-Mubarak Egypt.

As to the exclusion of women, one must wonder if the Muslim Brotherhood would have participated in the committee had a woman been named to it.

The panel will work quickly, as it is expected to have the new constitution finished in just ten days time. The Egyptian people are scheduled to vote on it in two months.

While the left is correct in asserting that the U.S. should not expect the Egyptian idea of “democracy” to look like our own, it is missing Gov. Palin’s larger point: Egyptians should exercise their right of self-determination, but the U.S. should not be obligated to endorse it, especially if the process involves giving radical Islamists a seat at the table which excluding women and the the country’s principal religious minority.

The left, which has long claimed to be in the vanguard of fighting for women’s rights, always seems to take the side of militant Islamists when it comes down to those radicals subjugating their women. Our leftists have been meekly silent about the treatment of women in Muslim culture, a status which is less elevated that that of horses and camels. Moreover, recent omens from elements of Egypt’s revolutionaries regarding women and Israel are disturbing at the very least.

Sarah Palin was right to warn that we should be wary of throwing our support behind the the Egyptian revolutionaries until we are assured of who they are and how they will govern. The first signals the Egyptians are sending with the panel which will write its new constitution are not positive ones in any way, shape or form. Once again, Gov. Palin has proven that hers is the prudent view, while her critics on the left show themselves to be all too willing and eager to embrace all that the United States should stand against.

Sarah Palin: Obama Let The 3 a.m. Call On Egypt Go Straight To His Answering Machine

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 6, 2011

…. we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with.

~ Sarah Palin

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin sat down Friday night with David Brody from CBN News, after she gave her keynote address in Santa Barbara honoring Ronald Reagan. The interview will air Monday on the 700 Club. As they say, check your local listings for air times.

There is a transcript of the interview available, and while Sarah Speaks to a lot of issues, these are her first comments on the situation in Egypt and the Middle East:

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Sarah Palin criticized President Obama for his handling of the situation in Egypt saying that this was his, “3am White House phone call” and, “that call went right to the answering machine.” Her answers about Egypt are the first time she’s talked publicly about the situation.

[ …. ]

On the situation in Egypt:

Sarah Palin: “Remember, President Reagan lived that mantra trust but verify. We want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that it is a true sincere desire for freedoms and the challenge that we have though, is how do we verify what it is that we are being told, what it is that the American public are being fed via media, via the protestors, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to really have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is. Trust but verify, and try to understand is what I would hope our leaders are engaged in right now.

Who’s going to fill the void? Mubarak, he’s gone, one way or the other you know, he is not going to be the leader of Egypt, that that’s a given, so now the information needs to be gathered and understood as to who it will be that fills now the void in the government. Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood? We should not stand for that, or with that or by that. Any radical Islamists, no that is not who we should be supporting and standing by, so we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.

On President Obama’s handling of the crisis in Egypt:

Sarah Palin: “It’s a difficult situation, this is that 3am White House phone call and it seems for many of us trying to get that information from our leader in the White House it it seems that that call went right to the answering machine. And nobody yet has, no body yet has explained to the American public what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak and I’m not real enthused about what it is that that’s being done on a national level and from DC in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt.

And in these areas that are so volatile right now because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information yet.”

This is a prudent stance. Few so-called presidential contenders have spoken out on this crisis, and it’s refreshing to see a healthy dose of skepticism from Sarah, plus an admittance that frankly, we need to know more information, before making an intelligent decision. here.

We do know the worst possible outcome for the entire world would be for the Muslim Brotherhood, which for all intents and purposes is al Qaeda, to come to power. Most of Obama’s close leftist allies [Soros, The founder of ACORN: Wayne Radke, and all of the usual suspects] are backing the Muslim Brotherhood, BTW.

Older readers will remember the mess Jimmy Carter got us in by not backing the Shah of Iran. Carter sat by while radicals overthrew the government, a government that was friendly to America, and replaced it with a thugocracy hell-bent on destroying Israel and America. Iran is now the leading sponsor of terror in the world, and on Obama’s watch, close to becoming a nuclear state.

We are seeing a replay of the carter years, but on steroids! 

Egypt’s dictator, Mubarak, is not exactly a nice guy. But he’s been an ally, and pretty much the only thing standing between Israel, and radical Islam, who wants to destroy her. So far al Qaeda has been very limited in what it can do, many times settling for suicide missions. If Egypt falls into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda will have a modern, well equipped, well trained army to do it’s bidding. That would be a world-wide disaster.

Mubarak is indeed gone. His days in office are numbered. It is incumbent on the United States to have a solid grasp of the situation, and make sure that, instead of a mob scene, we have a peaceful and orderly transition of power. It’s also incumbent on the U.S. that we not allow the Muslim Brotherhood to come to power.

It’s most disturbing though, that Obama jumped into this mess with both feet, supporting the bad guys, while claiming Mubarak should “listen to the will of the people.” [something Obama himself refuses to do]

Obama completely ignored the Freedom seeking Iranians who were being slaughtered in the streets when they attempted to overthrow their brutal dictatorship. In fact, when Obama was done with his golf games and Vegas style White House parties, he sided with the brutal Islamic dictatorship, over the will of the Iranian people.

Radical Islam has a long history of teaming up with Socialists and Communists. As much as it is a religion, it is also a political party, and philosophy.

Sarah is spot on and straight forward in her interview here. She rightly quotes Reagan’s “trust but verify” strategy. A strategy he used to destroy the Soviet Union. She is also correct when she says we need a leader with a steel spine.

This is not the only thing Sarah and Brody talked about though. This was a long interview.

They also discuss:

Does she want to make the mainstream media irrelevant?

If she runs for President, what might she do differently? [Hint: there a bit more Reagan talk here]

On the attacks in the media

On her devotional life

On her decision not to attend CPAC this year

You can read the entire transcript here.

There will be video available after 9 p.m. [Eastern] Sunday night.
