* Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi called Obama “a Muslim” and said: “All the people in the Arab and Muslim world and in Africa applauded this man. They welcome him and prayed for his success":
Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said this year: “We like Mr. Obama and we hope that he will win the election... He has a vision to change America.”
Hezbollah’s second in command, Sheik Naim al-Kassim, urged Americans to vote for Obama as a step toward peace with Islam, and pro-Hezbollah columnist Amal Saad-Ghorayeb said there is “no doubt Arabs should welcome an Obama presidency”.
In Saudi Arabia, commentator Hussein Shobokshi wrote that an Obama presidency “would mark an important moral transformation in the superpower and is a healthy indicator of the long-awaited improvement in the international arena.”
By now it's a public secret that a large amount of Obama's cash is illegal funding from abroad. Take it to the bank - no pun intended - that apart from a gazillion gullible Americans who are now donating glassy-eyed in order to later pay a multitude in taxes, there are many others across the globe financing to Obama's election machine. Via Michelle Malkin:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) today filed a supplement to its complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against the Obama for America campaign addressing its acceptance of foreign national and excessive contributions, donations from unknown sources, and demonstrated lack of oversight or concern for compliance with the law. The complaint demonstrates that the Obama campaign has failed to comply with federal campaign finance law in its fundraising. RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross released the following statement today concerning the supplement to the complaint:
“Based on numerous press accounts that have come to light since our initial filing in early October, it is clear that the Obama for America campaign is operating outside of the law. The complete and total lack of any control mechanisms within the Obama campaign’s fundraising operation has undermined any confidence in their ability to curtail excessive, foreign, and fraudulent contributions and demands immediate attention from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).”
To those who feel beaten to a pulp by the Goebbelesque propaganda emanating from the Democrats, I've got a nice anecdote for you. On December 16, 1944, nazi troops launched a surprise attack in the Ardennes, Belgium, with the aim of cutting the Allied armies in two and conquer their main supply port, Antwerp. The day after, Eisenhower had a meeting with his senior generals. When he entered the conference room, he noticed that all faces were glum and depressed. He strongly reproached them all and, contrary to common wisdom, advocated that the crisis situation should be viewed with confidence and optimism.
I am sorry to say that I seem to discern a similar attitude among our American readers - at least, those who see Obama for what he is, a charlatan hell bent on destroying the America as we know it and morphing it into a cross between the EU and the USSR. Too many faithful readers seem to have resigned to the fate of living under a socialist regime, and my message to them is: THIS IS NOT OVER YET! MCCAIN CAN STILL WIN THIS! Like General Eisenhower on that cold grey winter morning long ago, we need to look at the current situation with optimism and confidence. In reality, McCain's situation is deliberately depicted worse than it is by the MSM, with the express aim of discouraging Republican voters to even show up at the voting stations. DON'T STEP INTO THAT TRAP. Shake off that glum mood!!! I thought real Americans were winners??? In case you have forgotten, that's a credo from another iconic great American from a time when the threats against your country were in fact much bigger! I am talking about General Patton of course, and to give you yet another quote, when Patton realized that the nazis in the "bulge" had in fact put themselves in a situation extremely vulnerable from the flanks, he exclaimed to his superior, General Bradley: "Brad, the nazis have stuck their head in the meat grinder... and this time I am turning the lever!!!"
In this final week of the elections, we all need a chunk of that untameable Patton grit. Me being a Belgian, I can't participate in the US elections nor give financial support - unlike Obama's foreign supporters, I respect US law. But what I can do, and WILL DO, is lending moral support. Why? Because I have always admired America. It's not that I turn a blind eye on America's faults, hard as it may seem to people who possibly think I'm a critiqueless zealot. It's just that I have until now always been able to conclude - I am absolutely convinced it's an honest, reasonable conclusion - that while there are some faults and warts and what not, America still is, and unequivocally so, a Force for the Good. Because she is what she is, UNTIL NOW. With this strange hyperbolic creature in the White House, a quintessentially elusive figure of vapor, hollow statements, false rhetoric and impossible promises, America will be transformed into a second European Union and believe me, YOU DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.
Therefore I must urge all you Americans, at least those who love their country passionately and cherish the freedom and liberty granted to them by your country's marvellous Constitution, TO DONATE NOW FOR ONE LAST EFFORT. COME ON! DONATE NOW! OPEN THAT BANKING ACCOUNT!!!
