Melanie Phillips worries about Obama – Is America really going to do this?

Posted on: October 28, 2008

I have posted about Melanie Phillips, the author of Londonistan on the anniversary of the 9/11 here. She is an indefatiguable writer on all things Islamic and Jihadi. She has repeatedly warned us in the past about the increasing Islamization of Europe, England and  now possibly of America.

In a recent article in the Spectator-UK titled Is America really going to do this?    Ms. Phillips offers a comparison of McCain and Obama on their world view, attitude to middle east, and their ideas on Islamic/Jihad threats.  I thank  Jihad Watch  for featuring this article. The comments at both Jihad Watch and the original Spectator UK indicate the gravity of the article and the genuine concerns of the few that have read Ms. Phillips. My own understanding of the US media leaves me concerned that not enough has been written or understood about this issue.  Hence these bulky excerpts:

McCain believes in protecting and defending America as it is. Obama tells the world he is ashamed of America and wants to change it into something else. McCain stands for American exceptionalism, the belief that American values are superior to tyrannies. [sic]

Obama thinks world conflicts are basically the west’s fault, and so it must right the injustices it has inflicted. [sic]

McCain understands that an Islamic war of conquest is being waged on a number of diverse fronts which all have to be seen in relation to each other. For Obama, however, the real source of evil in the world is America. [sic]

McCain understands that Israel is the victim rather than the victimiser in the Middle East, that it is surrounded by genocidal enemies whose undiminished intention is to destroy it as a Jewish state, and that is both the first line of defence against the Islamist attack on the free world and its most immediate and important target.

Obama dismisses the threat from Islamism, shows zero grasp of the strategic threat to the region and the world from the encirclement of Israel by Iran, displays a similar failure to grasp the strategic importance of Iraq, thinks Israel is instead the source of Arab and Muslim aggression against the west, [sic]

Obama assumes that Islamic terrorism is driven by despair, poverty, inflammatory US policy and the American presence on Muslim soil in the Persian Gulf. Thus he adopts the agenda of the Islamists themselves.[sic]

There are, alas, many in the west for whom all this is music to their ears. Whether through wickedness, ideology, stupidity or derangement, they firmly believe that the ultimate source of conflict in the world derives at root from America and Israel, whose societies, culture and values they want to see emasculated or destroyed altogether. They are drooling at the prospect that an Obama presidency will bring that about. The rest of us can’t sleep at night

In other parts of the article, Ms. Phillips quotes Daniel Pipes to further castigate Obama’s views and pronoucements on the middleeast, and she also comes down hard on the notorious Samantha Power (of  the ‘Hillary monster’ fame), for being decidedly anti-Israel. Melanie Phillips is ringing a wakeup call, is America listening?

The us media continue to focus on the edges of reality.

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill.

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]

    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]

    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington.

  • Actress Allison Williams: ‘My Dad Would Have Voted for Obama a Third Time’ November 25, 2017
    Where does acting end and reality begin? In a movie now in rotation on HBO, actress Allison Williams, the daughter of MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, declares: “My dad would have voted for Obama a third time if he could have. Like, the love is so real.” Sounds perfectly plausible that such sentiment would apply to her real life father, the disgraced ousted anch […]
