On Monday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for praising a radical Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah,who works for an organization that has called for U.S. soldiers and Jews to be killed.
“This week saw more than the disrespectful latte salute of America’s finest,” Palin wrote in a Monday Facebook post. “We saw and heard from dear leader’s heart who he deems worthy of praise.”
Palin, who mocked Obama’s latte salute at the Values Voter Summit, said Obama’s praise “for the Muslim cleric who advocated killing our U.S. soldiers is one of the most appalling stunts we’ve seen.”
“Last week at the United Nations, Obama gave the cleric a global platform by quoting his words: “Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies–Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: ‘We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.'”
“He’s been enabled by the low information voters who gave him a second term to express his true beliefs in a perversely refreshing way that allows even the ill informed to now realize who our Commander in Chief really is,” Palin said of Obama. “For all the world leaders to see, he quoted and promoted Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah at the UN despite the cleric’s organization having declared a fatwa to kill U.S. soldiers and stating all Jews should die.”
Palin wrote that “of all the people to praise on an international stage, Obama would twist and deceive the world into believing Bin Bayyah is a man of peace representing a religion of peace.”
“This cleric is affiliated with various anti-American groups, was vice president of an organization founded by the Muslim Brotherhood (which also called for the killing of Jews and Americans),” Palin said before reminding Americans that when Obama shut down public tours of the White House and “refused to allow American citizens to visit the public sections of the People’s House” in 2013, “Bin Bayyah was invited into the private areas of our White House.”
