Why Obama Picked John Brennan for CIA (hint: loves to empower radical muslims)

John Brennan, CIA For more than a decade, everybody from the President to his top advisers to major figures in the mainstream media have embraced, without a shred of evidence to support it, the mantra that Islam is really a religion of peace and love that was hijacked by a few terrorists.
John Brennan is Obama's new pick to head up the CIA. Brennan's public statements about Islam and about jihad are enough to make one's blood run cold. A few points about John Brennan's view of Islam, from a blogsite called "Against All Enemies."
The FBI gave a guided tour of one of our most sensitive counter-terrorism facilities to a known Hamas operative,” [Frank] Gaffney said. “It is clear that the cluelessness fostered by Mr. Brennan is causing an empowering of the wrong sorts of Muslims in America and endangering the American people.”
Judicial Watch obtained documents revealing that Brennan and Defense Department officials disclosed to Hollywood filmmakers the identity of the SEAL Team Six operator and commander involved in taking out Osama Bin Laden.
The ACLU has fought pitched battles for decades to eliminate any vestiges of Christianity from the public school system, but it defended the mandatory study of Islam in the California school system, for example.
It isn't because the ACLU favors Islamic teachings. Islam gets preferential treatment because it is politically correct to advance the causes of minorities and politically incorrect to speak ill of minorities, which is, according to the Marxist principle of political correctness, the equivalent to 'oppression'.
Islam enjoys political influence far beyond its numbers because of political correctness. Islam might be the world's fastest growing religion, but in America, its numbers lag behind the number of Americans who believe they've been abducted by UFO's. (Twenty million Americans believe they've been abducted by UFO's, compared to the US Islamic population of seven million).
For more than a decade, Islamic terrorism has dominated US foreign policy. Thousands of Americans, both military and civilian, have died at the hands of Islamic terrorists.
The television airwaves have been saturated with warnings, releases, fatwas and declarations of 'Death to America' by Islamic terrorists. Islamic cultural centers have been used as terror recruitment outposts throughout the Western world.
In all this time, where has the moderate majority been?
As far back as November 1999, CAIR President Omar Ahmad addressed a youth session at the IAP annual convention in Chicago, where he praised suicide bombers who “kill themselves for Islam”:
“Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam – that is not suicide. They kill themselves for Islam.”
Which justifies AG John Ashcroft's comment about Islam, which at the time prompted calls for his firing:
"Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you."
According to Islam's apologists, only about ten percent of Islam follows the way of jihad. Ten percent of 1.2 billion is 120 million. Yet Islam is universally recognized as one of the world's three great monotheistic religions.
Consider this. If the Boy Scouts of America had 1,000 scout troops, and 10 of them practiced suicide bombings, then the BSA would be considered a terrorist organization. That seems reasonable enough. Especially if the Scouts as an organization defended it.
If the BSA refused to kick out those 10 troops, that would make the case even stronger. If people defending terror repeatedly turned to the Boy Scout handbook and found language that justified and defended murder – and the scoutmasters in charge simply said 'Could be' – the Boy Scouts would have driven out of America long ago.
Political correctness is an object lesson in the principle that spiritual blindess causes spiritual insanity. The world cannot accept the concept that one of the 'world's three great monotheistic religions' is at its core, a bloodthirsty, xenophobic religion dedicated to spreading Islam at the point of a sword, if necessary.
If one denies the existence of a good God, one cannot accept the existence of an 'evil god' -- and therefore, Islam is no greater a threat than Christianity or Judaism. Less, even, since it shares the world's irrational hatred of both Christians and Jews.
We are engaged in both a material and spiritual conflict, with the emphasis on the latter. It is a war between the forces of the Bible and the forces of the Prince of Persia. But recognizing the threat means recognizing the spiritual element behind it. That is too great a hurdle for the world to overcome.
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1st Corinthians 2:14)
The world prefers its version of 'moderate' Islam despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary because it is blinded by the god of this world.
"For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness." (1st Corinthians 3:19)
Conventional wisdom looks more like the results of mass hysterical hypnosis than it does the results of sober, thoughtful, contemplative examination of the evidence. Here we are, going into our twelfth year of a war we didn't start against a people we can't identify or understand.
When we were attacked in 2001, the budget was not only balanced, we were running a surplus. The debt clock even started running backwards. Twelve years in, we've spent ourselves broke trying to fight a war against an enemy we dare not even name.
Our president, who once called the Islamic call to prayer "one of the prettiest sounds in the world" has totally disengaged from Israel, helped to topple US-friendly secular governments from Algeria to Egypt, embraced the Muslim Brotherhood and has named "Jihad" John Brennan as the new director of the CIA.
He held several important posts in the CIA, including station chief in Saudi Arabia from 1996-9. His academic background includes the study of Arabic and Arab culture; he received a BA in political science from Fordham University, including a year abroad at the American University in Cairo, and an M.A. in Government specializing in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. He speaks Arabic 'fluently'.
Brennan is 100% on board with the Obama policy that our enemies consist only of “al-Qaeda and its extremist allies,” organizations that have distorted the peaceful nature of Islam. In fact, he opposes the use of the word ‘jihadists’ to refer to Islamic terrorists, because;
"They are not jihadists, for jihad is a holy struggle, an effort to purify, for a legitimate purpose. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing holy or pure or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children.”
So why do they do it? One would think that would be an important answer for the Director of the CIA to have handy, would it not?
It isn't because of Islamic ideology. It's because of economic 'unfairness.'
If we had only transferred more wealth to the Middle East, (already awash in oil wealth) or provided them with an education (most jihad killers have advanced degrees in things like engineering, or even medicine), Brennan believes all will be well.
And so do those he surrounds himself with. It is a case of self-delusion so other-worldly that it is really hard to get a handle on. Is it possible that anyone, let alone a guy in Brennan's position, be that naive?
It is possible, I suppose.
The only explanation that makes sense to me is that maybe it is easier to buy into the delusion than try to figure out why everybody else seems to believe it but you.
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2nd Thessalonians 2:7-8,11-12)
