Obama’s record on the rights of religious minorities across the world is a bloody stain on American history. Obama has aided and armed the worst violators of the basic human rights of religious minorities across the world — from Iran to Egypt, Libya to Syria, Afghanistan to Gaza, et al.
The abandonment of religious minorities under the sharia has become a hallmark of the Obama presidency. Hundreds of thousands of Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Jews in Egypt, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Lebanon, Malaysia, et al are victims of oppression, subjugation and ethnic cleansing. President Obama did nothing. Worse, President Obama went so far as to remove the sections covering religious freedom and religious persecution from the Country Reports on Human Rights that the State Department releases because the numbers under his reign are obscene.
This speech shows Obama’s utter contempt for truth, freedom and the American people.
“Human Rights: Advancing American Interests and Values” Remarks by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice at the Human Rights First Annual Summit
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
“We defend the freedom for all people to worship as they choose, and we champion open government and civil society, freedom of assembly and a free press,”
She heralded the president’s commitment to human rights.
“No one understands this profound responsibility more keenly than President Obama,” Rice said. “From his Nobel Prize acceptance speech to his remarks at the United Nations in September, he has been clear about the principles that guide us and to which we hold ourselves accountable, even as we navigate an increasingly complex world of competing and overlapping challenges. Make no mistake: advancing democracy and respect for human rights is central to our foreign policy. It’s what our history and our values demand, but it’s also profoundly in our interests.”
Obama’s suppression of the press is well documented. Reporters who don’t kiss his ring and stroke his insatiable ego are punished. White House press corps, notorious Obamaphiles, are revolting at the lack of access. His adminstration was found spying on reporters who were not part of the mass-media cheerleading squad.
“When ethnic and religious minorities—such as Tibetans and Uighurs—are denied their fundamental freedoms, the trust that holds diverse societies together is undermined,” Rice said. “Such abuses diminish China’s potential from the inside.”
Chinese Muslims (the Uighurs) are waging jihad in China. So according to the Obma administration, waging jihad is fundamental religious freedom, but he sanctions non-Muslims living under the sharia and suffering as sub-class citizens, denied basic human rights.
Rice speech audaciously highlighted the administration’s human rights record.
“U.S. officials press foreign governments at all levels to advance religious freedom, including through advocacy on specific cases, such as the case of Saeed Abedini—an Iranian-American pastor imprisoned in Iran—and Rimsha Masih—a Christian child accused of blasphemy in Pakistan.”
Obama signed a deal with Iran to allow them to continue to enrich uranium, while Christians rotting in Iranian prisons because of their religion were left to die.
