‘The Storm Is Coming’: Famed Preacher Reveals the One Thing Obama Is Doing That He Believes Will Lead to Christian Persecution in America

“We’re going to see persecution, I believe, in this country, because our president is very sympathetic to Islam and the reason I say that … is because his father was a Muslim, gave him a Muslim name, Barack Hussein Obama,” said Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham. “His mother married another Muslim man, they moved to Indonesia, he went to Indonesian schools.”

He continued, “So, growing up his frame of reference and his influence as a young man was Islam. It wasn’t Christianity, [it was] Islam.”

Graham charged that U.S. foreign policy is being influenced by Muslim groups and that the White House has invited these organizations in — a development that he said began during the Bush administration in the years following the September 11 attacks.

“Our foreign policy has a lot of influence now from Muslims,” he said. “We see the prime minister of Israel being snubbed by the president and by the White House and by the Democrats and it’s because of the influence of Islam. They hate Israel and they hate Christians, and so the storm is coming, I believe.”

Graham warned that “radical Islamists” are “advising various levels of government” and that the situation will get worse.

“Nobody is saying anything about this and we as Christians are going to lose,” he said.

Netanyahu Delivered Just What Obama Feared

Netanyahu Delivered Just What Obama Feared

Israel’s prime minister delivered a sober reminder of the risks of dealing with Iran—and painted Obama as naive in the process.

 Netanyahu was hailed in the House chamber like a conquering hero. The moment felt, well, presidential.

March 3, 2015 Congressional Republicans haven’t had many victories in their lasting conflict with President Obama, but Tuesday brought one. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s somber, provocative speech to Congress checked all the boxes.

It called into question the efficacy of any deal the administration might strike with Iran over its nuclear program; it likely renewed momentum for another round of Iranian sanctions on the Hill; it positioned the GOP politically as the party more worried about Israeli security, and, despite the White House’s best efforts, made the president appear petty and churlish.

Obama, in an interview with Reuters, had dismissed the speech as a “distraction,” and aides made sure everyone knew he would be too busy to watch it. But if the president didn’t cast an eye at a TV, he might have been the only person in Washington not to. And that’s the problem.

For weeks, the White House has worked steadily to write the speech off as a thinly veiled Republican ploy to undermine the delicate negotiations with Iran. But network coverage treated it for what it was: the head of state of a critical ally delivering a controversial address on American soil. That served the interests of both House Speaker John Boehner, who was the impetus behind the speech, and Netanyahu, elevating both of them while key Democrats such as Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren stayed offstage.

 Netanyahu was hailed in the House chamber like a conquering hero. The moment felt, well, presidential. He smartly rose to the occasion by taking time to thank Obama’s various and sometimes under-publicized efforts on Israel’s behalf. “I will always be grateful to President Obama for that support,” he said.

Then, to little surprise, he quickly reminded Congress and the public at large of Iranian threats to annihilate Israel and kill its citizens. But beyond that, he painted a picture of a global, existential struggle against religious extremism using the kind of loaded language that Obama won’t touch. He said Iran is a regime “hijacked by religious zealots” who are on an ideological mission to wage “jihad.”

Netanyahu suggested that “Western diplomats”—such as Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, who is driving the talks—are naive and are being charmed and duped by feints toward a nuclear agreement. The Iranian regime will always be “an enemy” of America. “Don’t be fooled,” he said. He said Iran is no different than ISIS, even though Iranian forces are fighting now to free the Iraqi city of Tikrit. “The enemy of your enemy is your enemy,” he said.

In that context, Netanyahu argued that any deal struck by Obama and Kerry would fail to significantly slow Iran’s nuclear program and instead would “guarantee” that Tehran would obtain nuclear weapons. He profoundly disagreed with administration assessments on how soon Iran could build a bomb if it chose to break the compact with the United States and its allies. He was dismissive of Obama’s belief that it isn’t realistic to expect Iran to completely dismantle its program.

The potential deal, Netanyahu said, “does not block Iran’s path to the bomb. It paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

He called on the West to keep sanctions in place until Iran shifts in tone and behavior. “If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country,” he said. “This is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. We’re better off without it.” That prompted an ovation.

In short, Netanyahu accomplished everything Republicans wanted and the White House feared. Polls show that the American public is skeptical of Iran’s motives in striking a deal, and the Israeli prime minister stoked those suspicions. Obama has taken a large—and likely a legacy-defining—risk in advocating for the talks. And Netanyahu reminded the world of just how large a risk it is.

The president’s challenge in that regard just got tougher. And it doesn’t help that he didn’t bother to engage with Netanyahu at all. In the interview with Reuters, Obama clung to the notion that he didn’t want to affect the outcome of Israeli elections in two weeks, even as he suggested that Netanyahu’s judgment with regard to Iran couldn’t be trusted.

Yes, the speech to Congress was, at heart, a propaganda piece, one carefully orchestrated by Obama’s adversaries. But that didn’t make it any less effective. And it was one whose aftereffects this White House could be feeling for a long time.

Obama is terrified because this time the King is the American People

Speech

Obama is terrified because this time the King is the American People

By Mario Murillo

Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Congress will take place on the eve of Purim.  Purim is the Jewish celebration of how God used Esther to save the Jews from in annihilation from Persia.   Modern Persia (Iran) once again seeks the annihilation of Israel.  The timing is perfect for this speech.

Netanyahu is a type of Esther because he in a position to intervene before the king and expose the web of lies about Iran’s intentions toward Israel.

Obama is not a type of the King in the story of Esther.  Many would say that Obama is another guy in the story, the one who lobbied to hide the destruction of the Jews and tried to convince the King that such an action would be beneficial to the kingdom.

Obama has softened his tone toward the visit of Netanyahu but he is secretly seething with rage and quaking with fear.   Netanyahu will inadvertently bring to light the incompetence of Obama in a way we have never seen.  He will do this in the most compelling way possible.  He will not do it by bashing Obama but  by simply asking America to save Israel.

This can cause devastating damage to Obama.  It can show America the insanity of our foreign policy.   It can expose the White House’s total bungling toward Israel, Islamic terror and everything else that they are touching in the world.

The timing is even more explosive because we have just learned that Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli pilots if they attack the nuclear bombing making facilities of Iran.

This is not a Republican but a head of state; the leader of Israel who was denied protection from our president and will now make his plea directly to the American people.

It terrifies Obama that he cannot deploy his lap dog media to black out or deflect Netanyahu.  NBC, CBS, ABC cannot activate their routine anti-Obama filter. Obama cannot control the Prime Minister’s words when he stands in the well of the Senate.  This is one of those rare occasions when he cannot edit, redact, or redefine the narrative.  The result can be a be a sudden, stunning drop of confidence in Obama.

The liberal media will ignore the speech altogether and it will be hilarious to hear their excuses.  It won’t work because Fox News will see to it that America hears every last word of this historic speech. America will finally see the White House’s shameful, inexcusable, and horrific bias against Israel and persecuted Christians worldwide.

So who is the King in this sequel to the story of Esther?  This time, the American people are the King.   We have the power to overrule Obama’s agenda toward Israel.  We have the opportunity to repeat the miracle of Purim.   Israel must be allowed to defend itself and the American public must understand that by saving Israel we are ultimately saving ourselves.
