That's not true at all. We were great friends of Iran in the 70's and the people then are still the people now. What you are falling for is propaganda
brought out by various interests who are repeatedly and relentlessly baiting Muslim extremists. And it isn't Obama or his policies.
You can't see someone effectively pouring gasoline over the region and waiting for the sparks to fly? Then vanishing into the shadows since they don't
want to be blamed for the firestorm they are trying to start.
We have our own Christian fundamentalist sects working overtime to de-stabilize the region but more effectively there is a very powerful group of
strict orthodox Jews who believe the Palestinians represent their sworn enemies the Amalek. God himself requires them to slay these people and not
only do they not want peace in the area - they would like a war. They NEED America to sympathize with their cause and rid the area of Palestinians for
them. They do not have the worlds permission, they are vastly outnumbered, surrounded and too small to wage their religious war on their own. So, they
are stirring up tensions and trying to egg on a Christian-Muslim war. In America we have like minded Christian extremist who sided with these strict
orthodox Jews and work side by side to vanquish the Muslim population, their sworn enemy, imagining they too are divinely inspired and helping to
fulfill Biblical prophecy.
Both groups work together toward the same goal for different reasons. They know if Americans here at home see enough television footage of violent
Muslim extremist rioting this will turn American hearts against Muslims in general. Finally war weary America might step in and fight a war with Iran.
Osama bin Ladin has been killed and still we occupy Afghanistan. You might argue we are "aiding" them but they don't want us there. They see we are
securing our own oil interests in the region.
American soldiers were filming themselves doing unspeakable acts to prisoners and defecating on the dead as a deliberate disrespect to these people's
culture and religion and still there was minimal acts of outrage considering the number of Muslims there are throughout the world much less the
region. This is a testament to their calm.
We have accidentally hit hospitals and schools and killed many innocent Muslim men women and children in misguided or mistaken drone strikes.
Understandably there was outrage but nothing like we see today.
One soldier went from house to house and killed innocent civilians, men women and children while they slept. Again, we apologized and these people
largely overlooked the senseless death of innocent Muslim at the hands of their "occupier."
A big deal was made out of an American Pastor who decided to burn the Koran in a big public show. He organized a movement abroad so that Americans
there on foreign soil would burn the peoples Holy Book right under their noses.
Finally when tensions died down they had to up the stakes and disrespect not only the people's Holy Book, but make a mockery of and blaspheme their
God and denigrate their religion - all while "guests" on their soil.
When do you think these people should
attack and say "Enough is enough?"
If another country tried any of this in America we would not have waited for trouble signs - We would have kicked the foreign invaders out at
Can't you see someone is trying to push buttons and stir up Muslim extremist just to make sure
THERE IS NO PEACE? They are religious zealots,
saboteurs who will thwart any and all peace between the Jews and the neighboring Palestinians even though both those people want it.
So far they have done their job and accomplished their goal.
Until the Mideast is rid of them, there will be no peace.
