Speaker at DC veterans rally calls on Obama to “put the Qur’an down”

The mainstream media is portraying Klayman as a nut, of course. How could any sane and rational person tell Obama to put the Qur’an down? Well, whatever is in his heart, and quite aside from the question of whether he is actually a Muslim, there is the pattern of his actions:

  • The State Department had an emissary in Egypt who trained operatives of the Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations in democracy procedures.
  • The State Department announced that the Obama administration would be “satisfied” with the election of a Muslim Brotherhood–dominated government in Egypt.
  • Secretary Clinton personally intervened to reverse a Bush-administration ruling that barred Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Brotherhood’s founder and son of one of its most influential early leaders, from entering the United States.
  • The State Department collaborated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Brotherhood, in seeking to restrict American free-speech rights in deference to sharia proscriptions against negative criticism of Islam.
  • The State Department excluded Israel, the world’s leading target of terrorism, from its “Global Counterterrorism Forum,” a group that brings the United States together with several Islamist governments, prominently including its co-chair, Turkey “” which now finances Hamas and avidly supports the flotillas that seek to break Israel’s blockade of Hamas. At the forum’s kickoff, Secretary Clinton decried various terrorist attacks and groups; but she did not mention Hamas or attacks against Israel “” in transparent deference to the Islamist governments, which echo the Brotherhood’s position that Hamas is not a terrorist organization and that attacks against Israel are not terrorism.
  • The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer $1.5 billion dollars in aid to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood’s victory in the parliamentary elections.
  • The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer millions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian territories notwithstanding that Gaza is ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.
  • The State Department and the administration hosted a contingent from Egypt’s newly elected parliament that included not only Muslim Brotherhood members but a member of the Islamic Group (Gamaa al-Islamiyya), which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization. The State Department refused to provide Americans with information about the process by which it issued a visa to a member of a designated terrorist organization, about how the members of the Egyptian delegation were selected, or about what security procedures were followed before the delegation was allowed to enter our country.
  • On a trip to Egypt, Secretary Clinton pressured General Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of the military junta then governing the country, to surrender power to the parliament dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the then–newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, a top Brotherhood official. She also visited with Morsi; immediately after his victory, Morsi had proclaimed that his top priorities included pressuring the United States to release the Blind Sheikh. Quite apart from the Brotherhood’s self-proclaimed “grand jihad” to destroy the United States . . . the group’s supreme guide, Mohammed Badie, publicly called for jihad against the United States in an October 2010 speech. After it became clear the Brotherhood would win the parliamentary election, Badie said the victory was a stepping stone to “the establishment of a just Islamic caliphate.”

And Pamela Geller notes that it isn’t just right-wing Islamophobes who have noticed Obama’s proclivities:


“Rallier tells Obama to ‘put the Quran down,'” by Ashley Killough, Shannon Travis and Brian Rokus for CNN, October 13 (thanks to Menis):

Washington (CNN) – Angered by the closure of national landmarks due to the partial government shutdown, a crowd of conservatives removed barricades Sunday at the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial as they rallied against President Barack Obama and Democrats for their role in the ongoing stalemate.

High-profile speakers with close ties to the tea party appeared at the event, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

The rally, billed as the “Million Vet March on the Memorials,” drew far fewer than a million people and evolved into a protest that resembled familiar tea party events from 2009, with yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” flags throughout the crowd and strong anti-Obama language from the podium and the audience.

One speaker went as far as saying the president was a Muslim and separately urged the crowd of hundreds to initiate a peaceful uprising.

“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group….

    Quote, “I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group….

    Comment: The statement just doesn’t sound very serious.

    The criminality of handing the US policy over to the Muslim Brotherhood cannot be EXCEEDED IN US HISTORY!

    The first time a US president has made US policy to conform to the wishes of TOTALITARIAN ORGANIZATION with plans to destroy the laws, constitution and governmental system of the United States of America!

    Judging by our community organizer cum commander-in-chief’s cluelessness regarding Islam, I seriously doubt he’s ever read the Quran. And his behavior since becoming president I am doubtful he’s read the US Constitution either.

  4. says

    Thank goodness for the unwavering courage of Mr.Klayman and his fellow US patriots.

    We ex-Muslims living with Islam’s formal and informal death penalty for apostasy know that the Quran, hadith and Mohammed’s example concretely demand that the Muslims wage violent jihad against the non-Muslims.

    Though I havn’t read it myself, there’s a new book/ebook out on Amazon, written by a former customer of mine, Andrew Roberts, called ‘Obama Watching’. Looks like an interesting read.

  6. says

    ‘Put the Quran down’? Rasool Obama? I bet he has a Quran hidden in his closet and nips from it several times a day. I also wonder about Hillary. Is she in the closet too? Have years of da’wah from Huma weakened her natural defenses? Is that why she got cozy with UN Islamics and that list of State Dept actions?

  7. says

    After everything the tyrant Obama and his administration did I still see lots of morons driving their vehicles with their pro Obama stickers on. I can’t but think how far gone these people truly are. How brainwashed are they, really. This president is anti American, his hands are completely soaked with American blood. Obama isn’t loosing his sleep at night because he is a muslim scum.

    Things might get much more interesting if someone in Congress or the Senate were game to stand up in that august assembly with a Quran in his hand and then recite, verbatim, exactly as recorded in Hansard, the words of the great 19th century English statesman William Gladstone, as spoken – Quran in hand – in the Parliament of Great Britain.

    Gladstone called it ‘an accursed book’ and stated that ‘so long as there is this book, there will be no peace in the world’.


    Alternatively, a Senator or Congressman could stand up, Quran in hand, and then read out, verbatim, in measured tones, certain passages from the great John Quincy Adams’ essays on Islam.

    Imagine if anyone in Congress or Senate were brave enough simply to quote *this* (JQA’s comparison of Christianity and Islam):

    “…he [Jesus] declared, that the enjoyment of felicity in the world hereafter, would be reward of the practice of benevolence here. His whole law was resolvable into the precept of love; peace on earth – good will toward man, was the early object of his mission; and the authoritative demonstration of the immortality of man, was that, which constituted the more than earthly tribute of glory to God in the highest…
    ‘The first conquest of the religion of Jesus, was over the unsocial passions of his disciples. It elevated the standard of the human character in the scale of existence…
    ‘On the Christian system of morals, man is an immortal spirit, confined for a short space of time, in an earthly tabernacle.
    ‘Kindness to his fellow mortals embraces the whole compass of his duties upon earth, and the whole promise of happiness to his spirit hereafter.

    “In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth.
    Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle.
    Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion.
    He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy;
    and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind.

    ‘Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged.
    ‘The war is yet flagrant…

    ‘While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men….”.
    And this:

    “The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force..”.

    Who, who, who, in any Parliament of the Western world – or, for that matter, beyond it, in Anglophone or Francophone Christianised Africa, or in India – would be brave enough to stand up among their fellows, Quran in hand, and then speak those words, the words of William Gladstone and of John Quincy Adams?

    Obama supporters see themselves self-righteously as the leaders in a noble cause defending the Noble Savages against nasty Neo-Conservatives who wish to re-enslave them.

    Meanwhile, these moronic Leftards help to enslave the world to TOTALITARIAN ISLAM. Obama is their leader as they send planeloads of cash to throat-slitting, church-burning terrorists.

    The US government is completely topsy-turvy MAD and DELUSIONAL.

  10. says

    Back in ’08 there was disgust whenever Obama’s connections to terrorists, anti-Americans and racists was brought up, as if bringing up the factual truth was somehow a hate crime.

    If you’ll recall, when the North Carolina Republican Party ran a TV ad bringing up Obama’s political mentors – Bill Ayers and his wife – were known terrorists, “opposition” candidate John McCain publicly excoriated the NC GOP and demanded that they pull the factually accurate ad because it wasn’t classy.

    And so now we have the list in this post.

    I actually have a bit of sympathy for those who call for a non-violent revolt. The last straw for me wasn’t some Indonesian telling the world that the O was a reciter when young, but seeing the WWII memorial, which doesn’t even have an attendant and is easily accessible to any pedestrian in normal times being blocked off while a demo in support of illegal immigration was given the run of the Washington Mall. Much as I think there are numbers of illegals in the USA who might as well be rounded up, fined, knuckle-rapped, and handed a sheaf of papers to fill out for regular status rather than deported (although there are lots of those, too, to be sure), I’m still too much of an old consular officer to think “what part of ‘illegal’ don’t you understand?” These actions alone convince me of the utter political shamelessness of our Community-organizer-in-chief and his minions.

    His playing fast and loose with the First Amendment is another thing that gives me the willies, as I mentioned before, back when the Benghazi scandal broke.

    Noting as well that the O made a few changes to the AFCA by presidential fiat and now digs in his heels at the House of Reps (the Constitutional venue) making more, I also hold the O and his maladministration even more than his Congressional opponents responsible for our government shutdown. If Obamacare was such a wonderful idea, I don’t know why Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and all those other congressional Jackasses exempted themselves (plus union members, plus big business–all the political cash cows). The O has survived this long only because the MSM has covered for his shenanigans.

    As for the Qur’an, I agree it is an evil book. I’ve read it in English tranaslation and see it as a swindler’s imitation of the Bible (I admit that I feel the same about the Book of Mormon, the Pistis Sophia, the Coptic pseudo-Gospel of Thomas, and a number of other works that theological liberals have dusted off and are trying to fob off as “holy scripture”. But, keep in mind I’ve read it, and keep it on my shelf rather than kindle the barbecue with it. I also refer to condemn someone for simply reading it.

    As for the O’s “Islam”, I understand that he’s a pork eater (like Uncle Kepha, BTW) and likes his beer. I continue to be of the mind that his pro-Islamic stance is just part of the attempt to appear “broad-minded” and “tolerant”. As for the O’s Indonesian Muslim childhood, I don’t know how dependable these former teachers might be when addressing a country where Islam in dominant an where a “local boy” (even if just a permanent resident rather than a citizen at the time) goes off to become POTUS confers a great deal of status. My own hunch is that the O’s boyhood Islam was a mixture of the legal status conferred by various statutes in Indonesian law and a new kid on the block desperately trying to “fit in”. I’ve never heard any reports of the O still knowing Bahasa Indonesia (such as using it in Pacific countries meetings when introduced to Malaysian, Indonesian, or Bruneian representatives). As for Arabic, none of his media shills have advertised that skill, either.

    If I’ve read correctly, it seems that the O was all of six years old when he went to Indonesia to be Lolo Soetero’s stepson back in 1967; while he returned to Hawaii in 1970 (age nine), including steps being taken to put him in the Punahou School at the time. Given that Stanley Ann Dunham divorced Soetero the following year or thereabouts, my suspicion is that her marriage was already starting to sour, and she was preparing her exit. Hence, I doubt that a couple of years of literate life in Indonesian that doesn’t seem to have sufficed to leave him with much knowledge off Bahasa Indonesia really turned the young O into a Muslim.

    This does, however, suggest to me that the child Obama went through a lot of insecurity, and this childhood insecurity may be a key to the mixture of ideologue and confidence man–not necessarily Muslim he grew to be. Seeing his use of Trinity UCC in Chicago, I suggest he conned them among others, and was probably as cynical about it as he apparently has been about his oath on the Constitution.

    I actually feel sympathy for the child O, much as I loathe the adult. I’ve had to teach a number of teens from unstable households,after all.

    In case one got the memo, BHO, when asked what the most beautiful sound in the world is, replied that for him it’s the Muslim call to prayer.

    Funny — non-Muslims hear a hideous cacophony that, when translated (loosely), says something on the order of “Watch out, filthy kuffar, we’re coming to kill, enslave or convert you.”

    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

    An unfortunate but inevitable truth.

  14. says

    There is a lot of evidence that Obama is in fact a Muslim. Here is a great article by Daniel Pipes.

    According to one of Obama’s teachers, Tine Hahiyary, ” quoted in the Kaltim Post, said the future president took part in advanced Islamic religious lessons: “I remember that he had studied mengaji.” In the context of Southeast Asian Islam, mengaji Koran means to recite the Koran in Arabic, a difficult task denoting advanced study.”

    Obama studied the Koran.
