Obama Messenger of Peace or Messenger of Moral Relativism?

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
—John Lennon

Barack Hussein Obama is a Messenger of Peace, a dreamer but he’s not the only one. Obama captured the spirit of the Liberal manifesto, deceased Beatle John Lennon’s song Imagine, and preached that idea to the Muslims of the world via Cairo Egypt Thursday morning June 4, 2009. (see transcript)

Obama preached a mixture of Lennon’s utopian dream of total worldwide communism and his own dreams of Liberal Left-wing Marxism via moral relativism. Obama’s world is a world where trickle up poverty is a shared experience by all peoples. It is a world where no nation is better than any other.

Obama’s world is a world were Islam, Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion or non-religion are all equally honored the same. Just imagine it if you can.

Obama’s world is a world where the Jihadist, the Christian and the Jew are all equally at fault for the turmoil in the Middle East. Obama’s world is a world where only his Message of a “New Beginning” can bring the peace that the old messages of Islam, Christianity and Judaism failed to bring. If we all just embraced Obama’s message of a new beginning above all of our old petty divisive beliefs of the past the world would be as one. Just imagine it if you can.

Obama’s world is a world where, according to Charles Krauthammer ,the result of 60 years of[Islamic] Palestinian leadership that gave its people corruption, tyranny, religious intolerance and forced militarization; leadership that for three generations rejected every offer of independence and dignity, choosing destitution and despair rather than accept any settlement offer can somehow, in Obama’s mind, can be blamed equally on Israel as if Israel was at fault for Palestine’s self imposed miseries.

Krauthammer further notes that Former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin Al Husseini and leader of the Palestinian movement chose war rather than a two-state solution in 1947. Palestinian President Yasser Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in 2000. And Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas rejected Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's even more generous December 2008 offer of land for peace. (see source)

Krauthammer wrote that in the 16 years since the Oslo accords turned the West Bank and Gaza over to the Palestinians, their leaders built no roads, no courthouses, no hospitals, none of the fundamental state institutions that would relieve their people's suffering. Instead they poured everything into an infrastructure of war and terror, all the while depositing billions (from gullible Western donors) into their Swiss bank accounts.
"Palestinians must abandon violence....At the same time, Israelis must acknowledge that just as Israel's right to exist cannot be denied, neither can Palestine's,"—The Moral Relativism of Barack Hussein Obama
The point is there is no moral relativity here. Israel has been willing for a two state solution since 1947 and has attempted to negotiate that reality with the Palestinians with ever increasing concessions of land on Israel’s part in spite of the fact that there were never any concessions on Palestine’s part.

I suppose that it's good first step that Mr. Obama recognized, if ever so slightly, the violence of the Palestinians against the people of Israel but there will never be a new beginning in the region or peace until the Messenger of Peace denounces moral relativism and recognizes that in reality, unlike in the Lennon song noted above, in this world there are “Lions” and “Lambs.” Meaning that Obama’s message should have been tailored for that reality instead of the placating to Islam in relativist imaginations that we all witnessed him do in Cairo.

I’m afraid that Mr. Obama’s Message to the Muslim world was way above his pay grade. And in spite of whatever Mr. Obama was attempting to accomplish by his speech in Egypt the results will be that there will be no peace until the Prince of Peace comes with the power to make the lion lay down next to the lamb.

Until then we should at least attempt to speak as truthful as best we can about our present situation in the Middle East. To which I am afraid to say Mr. Obama failed even to do that in Cairo!

Imagine that if you can.
