One the stories circulating the Web, is that our newly elected president, Barak Husein Obama, is going to write a letter to president I’m-in-a-jihad, the leader of Iran. It seems they’re going to become pen pals. Right after the election, President I’m-in-a-jihad, sent a letter of congratulations to Obama and now Obama is responding. This is a far cry from the policies of the Bush administration which called Iran part of the. “Axis of evil,” and refused diplomatic relationships with them. So let’s strip it down and expose the truth of what this may lead to. First off, every Friday in Tehran thousands of people demonstrate shouting, “Death to America, death to Israel.” How’s that for a nice bit of detente? I’m-in-a-jihad, has said repeatedly, over the years while he has been in office, that Israel will be destroyed. He has said such things like, “Israel is a cancer soon to be irradiated.” Not much camaraderie and good will there. Iran is under Sharia law, so when three teenagers are found to be gay, the state hangs them. I’m-in-a-jihad is right though, Iran doesn’t have a problem with gays. Oh, and remember this is the same country that held Americans hostage for 440 days, while the Carter administration wrung there hands wondering what to do. I wonder if Mr. Carter sent a letter to Khomeini, maybe if they had been pen pals things would have been a little different? In the latest, I’m-in-a-jihad has said that America needs to apologize! Can you imagine that, we need to apologize, for what? Our way of life? The freedoms that we enjoy? Our prosperity? Our Liberty?
Obama can write all the letters he want, but here’s the rub. Time is ticking and Iran is getting close to having the material to produce a nuclear bomb. If Iran gets it they will use it on Israel and Israel is never going to let that happen. So will Mr. Obama ask in his letter to I’m-in-a-jihad, to stop making nuclear material? I’m sure that will convince Tehran. This is a new tack for the United States. It is a clear departure from the last 8 years under the Bush administration. We can talk all we want to, but it’s not going to stop the hate that is directed against this country. I’m reminded of the demonstrations in London where the radical Moslem’s are chanting, “Bomb, bomb, USA, bomb, bomb, UK!” Yep, letter writing is going to change the hearts and minds of people who hate us and want to kill us. They’re are some of you who are reading this and will think I’m to harsh. History shows us that when Neville Chamberlain went to Hitler, shortly before WWII he returned with, “The White Paper,” which was Hitler’s promise of peace. Shortly afterward all hell broke loose. You can’t negotiate with terrorist. As Benjamin Netanyahoo has pointed out, “it’s 1939 and Iran is Germany.” While I wish for the success of my president, Mr. Obama, I also don’t want to see him made a fool of on the world stage. I don’t want to see him duped. There is much to learn from history and being a pen pal is not how I would approach a repressive regime that has sworn to eliminate another country – Israel – off the face of the earth.
