Obama and Arab Imperialism

Obama and Arab Imperialism

By Amil

Have you ever asked yourself why Barack Hussein Obama
began his presidency by shocking America with his grandiose trip of apology and appeasement to
“the Muslim world”? Did you ever ask yourselves where on earth he derived the
notion that America is ‘one of the largest Muslim countries in the
world’? How in the world did he come up with the notion that Islam
has been part of America
since its foundation?

Have you wondered why President
Obama refused to say a word on behalf of millions of Iranians
flooding the
streets of their major cities in the summer of 2009 as they voiced their
opposition to the illegitimate mullahcracy that has been enslaving Iranian
people for more than three decades? Or why Obama allowed his National Security
advisor John
Brennan
to henceforth refer to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel for
millennia “Al Quds” — the Arabic Muslim name for the city? “Such a signal from
an American Arab working
in the White House
could not be accidental, and instead comes off as a clear
sign of an Arab tilt, a slight not lost on the Israelis. Underlining the
anti-Israeli spin, the President just completed a trip to Indonesia, another
visit to another major Muslim capital. Obama has yet to visit Israel.”
Do you recall how Obama
snubbed Benjamin Netanyahu
, the Prime Minster of Israel, at the White House
during his visit? And how he is funding Hamas
openly via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department — sending
hundreds of millions of our tax-dollars to our sworn enemies, Islamist
terrorists who are dedicated upon the destruction of Israel, a goal that Obama
is brazenly fostering, despite what he reads from his duo of
Teleprompters?
In the Washington Post’s editorial “Mr. Mubarak vs. Mr. Obama,” the paper clearly
reveals Obama’s weakness vis-à-vis Arab imperialism.
“He should end the State Department’s practice of allowing Egypt to
exercise a veto over which civil society groups receive U.S. aid, and he should
encourage Congress to link military funds to human rights, as it has for several
democracies that are U.S. allies. Most of all, Mr. Obama should make it clear
that he will not be dismissed or pushed around by Arab strongmen. If Mr. Mubarak
gets away with it, others will be quick to follow his
example.”
Now, Obama has mandated the United States Navy that the Persian Gulf shall
no longer be referred to as such (which is how it has been defined for thousands
of years), but from now on must be named the “Arabian Gulf?”
It is highly illogical and grossly irresponsible for the Obama
administration to arbitrarily order our men and women in the Department of U.S.
Navy
to use the name “Arabian Gulf” in place of its historical name, the
Persian Gulf. This is completely in contradiction with Obama’s Persian
New Year Message
to the Iranian people more than a year ago in which he
called Iran “a great civilization.”
One wonders what motivated this blatant action by the Obama Administration
— perhaps a simple arrogant exercise of power or capitulation to the financial
rewards offered by recently created Sheikdoms and Arab-lords in the Persian Gulf
region who aim to further their world standing at the expense of others. In
1974, in an interview with the late shah of Iran, Mike Wallace asked his majesty
why the Arabs call it the Arabian Gulf; here is an excellent response
by his majesty
, regarding this issue.

Appeasing the Arab countries
(the same Arab countries who brought down the world Trade Center in New York
City) will neither change the historical name of Jerusalem nor the body of water
called the Persian Gulf. It is one thing for the Obama administration to depict
the map of the world as is and another thing to manipulate it. It is one thing
for any business to market its product and it is another thing to peddle
something it does not own.

It did not take long for the Iranians
around the world
to take their frustration into the U.S.
Navy Facebook website
which resulted in a lame response from the
administrator of the site:

“The reason why the Navy chooses to use “Arabian Gulf” and not the
historically used “Persian Gulf” is that “Arabian Gulf” is the naming convention
recognized by our regional Arab partner nations and used by the U.S. Navy in the
5th Fleet area of operations”
Iranians were quick to respond with their own sense of humor: based on the
Facebook response and according to Arab partners in all fleet areas this is what
the United States would look like, the United
States of Arabia
. Also, in a petition,
Iranians have requested “respectfully that the U.S. Navy revert back this recent
gross oversight that may result in unimaginable and irreversible consequences in
fostering good relations with the people of Iran at a critical time in history.
The U.S. foreign policy should support secular, freedom loving forces to gain
long-term benefits.”
Demanding that the name of the Persian Gulf be retained goes beyond the
fact that the Persians are rightfully proud of their heritage and strive to
preserve the integrity of the historical documents that reference it as such.
Iranians wish to retain their non-Arab heritage and strongly resent any attempt
at denigrating or changing any aspect of their Iranian identity. Even inside
Iran, the Iranian people have been constantly fighting and opposing similar
attempts by the brutal dictatorship of the ruling
IRI regime
. The Persian Gulf occupies a pivotal place in the Iranian history
and culture.
The Iranians worldwide, as well as all people interested in preserving the
integrity of historical and cultural records, are deeply affronted by this
arrogant action of the Obama administration. Acquiescing to practices of this
sort is tantamount to appeasement, which only serves to whet the appetite of
aggressors and violators. Precedence may pave the way for a torrent of
infringements on every aspect of every people’s cultural and historical
heritage.
