(Israel Matzav) At the Republican Presidential debate in South Carolina on Monday, former Texas Governor Rick Perry called a spade, a spade. He slammed Turkey for being governed by Islamic terrorists and urged NATO to expel the Islamic state. The Turks are furious (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
Perry made the remarks when he was asked by moderator of the program whether Turkey should still belong in NATO, given that “the murder rate of women has increased 1,400 percent, press freedom has declined to the level of Russia, Prime Minister of Turkey has embraced Hamas and Turkey threatened military action against both Israel and Cyprus since the Islamist-oriented party took over.”
“Obviously when you have a country that is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists, when you start seeing that type of activity against their own citizens, then, yes, not only is it time for us to have a conversation about whether or not they belong to be in NATO but it’s time for the United States, when we look at their foreign aid, to go to zero with it,” Perry boldly claimed.
“And you go to zero with foreign aid for all of those countries. It does not make any difference who they are. You go to zero with foreign aid and you have the conversation about do they have America’s best interests in mind. When you have countries that are moving far away from the country that I lived in back in the 1970s as a pilot of the US Air Force, that was our ally, they worked with us. But today, we don’t see that,” Perry said.
And in case anyone didn’t get it, a Perry spokesperson explained it.
Victoria Coates, his foreign policy advisor, said that some view the leaders of Turkey as Islamic terrorists due to their support of Hamas and the flotilla against Israel, according to ABC News.
“The governor was responding to the questioners references to violence against women and to association with Hamas, I think both of which are things that many people do associate as he said with Islamic terrorists,” Coates was quoted as telling reporters by ABC News. “He was referring to those things, and while he would welcome the opportunity to work with Turkey on regional issues like Syria or Iraq, this kind of behavior on the part of that country is disturbing and I think we should concerned about it.”
Asked if the leaders of Turkey have performed any actions which place them in the category of Islamic terrorists, Coates responded: “What he said was that many people associate that kind of behavior with that of Islamic terrorists. I think also their support for the flotilla against Israel this fall. It’s deeply concerning, and I think it’s something any future American president needs to be aware of.”
I don’t have a problem with not knowing the answer. I have a problem that he had to lean over to Ron Paul to answer it for him. It isn’t so much that I think he is stupid. I’m not looking at him that way. I know he isn’t stupid. What I fear with Perry is that he depends on smart people who do not share values that are good for Jews and Christians. If you are a devout spiritual person and you count on intellectuals that are philosophically rooted without a sound foundation (P.S. that is what religion is supposed to do), then you are not giving your voters what you are promising. I want a religious man that can get his hands dirty in the issues and doesn’t have to play more pure then thou… and leaves the details to those that don’t share positive values. That was the problem with G W Bush… and Perry appears to be a lot alike. Bush really wanted to be the born again President, but if you look at his record he wasn’t much different then Obama. And the reason we have Obama now is not that Conservatism failed… it is that Conservative values did not lead. Conservatives can not lean over to people like Ron Paul, Condi Rice, or other so called intellectuals and say… “HELP, I’m just a stupid religious person who the voters like because I’m the symbolic man of G-d”. Letting your enemies step in when you fail because you don’t have a clue was the undoing of the Republican party and I fear we are going back in the same direction.
I like all these guys, but Perry is vulnerable to criticism all over the place. He is exactly like Bush with all the same problems. The Left hates him because he is Christian and the right doesn’t trust a guy who is doing business with our murderers. If Perry wants to win he is going to have to clarify his position on Islam. Since Perry is Al Gore’s campaign manager I’m not sure he has the ability to be a true conservative and call out a danger. Perry let school books carry Palestinian propaganda like claims that Jews and Muslims lived in peace before the state of Israel was created. This claim is false as was pointed out on my blog regarding Tiberias, and there are so many other examples of killing pogroms. The Arabs were as bad as Cossacks and a few liberal Eastern European Jews are going to have to realize that their anger at the Tsar is equaled to the abuse the Sephards took. When the Arabs asked to merely kill Ashkenazis they killed the Sephards with them. That is what happened in Hebron. Romney’s problem is very simple… he’s a Mormon and Mormon religion despite what Beck claims is replacement theology. Romney is a true friend of Israel, but Romney is going to have to change his church like his Dad did when the church started allowing black people in (black folks are cursed in Mormonism… yes the rumor is true and I suppose we could say slavery was a curse… yeah it took me a while to get that the Mormons are actually the liberal bohemians who wanted sex with more then one vagina. I get it now… and I’m sure I’ve offended a few readers just now… honestly I’d convert if you didn’t believe we were all from outer space and things like we can be a G-d too… I do like the wife part) The problem with Cain is he is a business man… and business men have to take recommendations on things… they are not scholars. He admits that, so Cain is really only as good as the people that are around him. He’s a leader, commander and not a scholar. It shows when he answered some Palestine issues. Example he didn’t know anything about a Palestinian right to return. He said this to deny something on a threatening stance, but the truth is that this stance is out there and he didn’t know about it. you have to acknowledge lies before you can undo them. I still think Cain is a sure bet to be elected and get Obama the Jew back stabber out. The campaign slogan could be I’m blacker then you and I like Jews.
“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me TWICE, shame on ME.” said one Jew on an internet facebook group. Yes Ed is ready to be a slave to Socialism once again… he just wanted some attention first… and he wanted to kibbitz with the president about monkeys.
…The shocking thing is the end of the article…
|Miral is in the latest Planet of the Apes film that Ed Koch likes so much…|
Koch has no problems with Jew cleansing bigots like Obama (Palestine will not allow Jews to live there), but people who don’t believe in the theory that we are monkeys are a problem?As long as Ed gets attention it is all fine.
The worst thing about Ed the Queen is he makes us look into his little arrogant head all the time.
…I didn’t want to go there.
