Last Thursday, President Obama celebrated the end of the Muslim period of fasting known as Ramadan. The company he kept on the occasion spoke volumes about his sympathies – not simply towards Islam, but for Islamic supremacism.
Now, Team Obama treats the White House invitation list as a more closely held state secret than Hillary Clinton did actual, highly classified information. But a number of known, stealthy “civilization jihadists” used the occasion to share via social media the fact that they were, once again, “inside the wire.”
As important and as usual, Mr. Obama excluded pro-American, anti-jihad Muslim reformers from his celebration. The message to their community could not be more clear: Those tied to the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood are your leaders.
It is exceedingly undesirable – and dangerous – for such a message to be assiduously conveyed by the President of the United States.

The President’s Homeland Security Advisor says international terrorist groups are “planning for sophisticated and coordinated terror attacks” in this country. In fact, Lisa Monaco warned that the threats are becoming ‘broader, more diffuse, and less predicable than at any time” since the 9/11 attacks.
Call it Obama’s legacy.
Unfortunately, as former clandestine CIA officer Clare Lopez and I point out in a new book, See No Sharia, our first lines of defense against such threats have been effectively blinded to what motivates these terrorists, severely handicapping those supposed to protect us against them.
Before jihadists kill more of us, FBI, military, intelligence community and Homeland Security Department personnel must be allowed to know the truth about Islamic supremacism and the totalitarian ideology that animates it: sharia. Only then can we improve the odds of preventing the next murderous attack.

“Assimilation is a crime against humanity.” So said Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Islamic supremacist who is both prime minister of Turkey and a close chum of President Obama.
The assertion ought to be infamous. But this is, after all, Islam we are talking about – meaning, we are not talking about it.
You won’t read it in the American media, nor will you hear it from our bipartisan Beltway profiles in courage. Both the Obama Left and the Republican establishment are deeply invested in the fantasy that Erdogan, like Islam itself, is our moderate ally – ironic, given that Erdogan himself is profoundly offended at the very suggestion that there is such a thing as “moderate Islam.” Yup, what you have been told is the plinth on which American Middle East policy rests, is, according to Erdogan, not only a house-of-cards but:
… an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it.
