As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama: Iranian Fatwa a Good Sign!

The boss of Iran, Ayotollah Khamenei, has issued a Fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons! This apparently is part of Obama’s reason for thinking we can strike a deal with Iran to prevent the country from constructing the Holocaust Part II Bomb.

Here’s what Obama said Friday. He seemed completely serious:

I do believe that there is a basis for a resolution. Iran’s Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons. President Rouhani has indicated that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons.

A Fatwa! I mean, you gotta respect that, right?

No, now, I know what you’re thinking.

Wrong, a Fatwa is not a battle between two gaseous Bostonians breaking wind. That would be a faht wah. As in, Mahk and Dahn or having a faht wah.


It’s a solemn, religious edict. This is what a Fatwa is, according to Wikipedia:

fatwā (Arabic: فتوى‎; plural fatāwā Arabic: فتاوى‎) in the Islamic faith is the technical term for the legal judgment or learned interpretation that a qualified jurist or mufti can give on issues pertaining to the Islamic law.

This latest Fatwa is now the second most famous ever to emerge from the Iranian mullahs, still perhaps trailing the Fatwa issued to kill author Salman Rushdie. Despite this, Obama seems to put some value on Iranian Fatwas.

I’m pretty sure that, just prior to the Munich agreement, Hitler issued the German equivalent of a Fatwa – known as a Dummkopf – against taking over other countries. But everyone was mistaken. Turned out that was just a term Hitler was using to describe Chamberlain.

That Obama would even mention an Iranian Fatwa or a promise by Iranian President Rouhani that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons, even though Iran is emphatically developing nuclear weapons right now, is grave cause for concern.

Negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program must be entered into with the proper assumption that nothing Iran says can be trusted and that talks are extremely unlikely to yield a satisfactory result.

It begs credulity, to say the least, that Iran, which has been nursing its nuclear weapons program for decades, is going to abandon the quest when it’s on the doorstep of success in order to get out from under sanctions. Even with these supposedly nasty, biting sanctions, Iran is somehow coming up with the money to aid its Syrian ally, Bashar Assad. It pursues its vital interests whether it can ship lots of oil or not. And at this point, we’re only talking about the Iranian economy surviving for another six months or so.

Our president is naïve about everyone in the world except the House Republicans, it seems. He thinks Syria will fork over its chemical weapons, that the Taliban can be trusted, that the Muslim Brotherhood harbors secret Jeffersonian impulses, and that Hamas can become a trustworthy negotiating partner for the Israelis. The list goes on and unfortunately it extends to Tehran.

An Iranian nuclear weapon would amount to one of the greatest threats to Western civilization in the past millennium. I don’t think I’m exaggerating. If you want to hasten Armageddon, give Iran the bomb.

Unfortunately, the man controlling our fate thinks savages can be trusted. There should be a Fatwa against believing savages. Maybe then Obama would approach Iran with the proper skepticism.

  1. Obama cannot get over himself enough to even think about ramifications to the nation’s welfare or security. He is a playing with fire because the Dems and LIVs gave him the matches. Nothing of any consequence has ever happened to him. He cannot conceive of a fatwa or what it means. In his world, he is always rescued.

    In the end like Walter White confessed it is all about him.

  2. This Arab curse sounds a lot like the curse my Italian neighbor used; the maloccio or the ‘evil eye’ . It was never proven to work, but it sure scared a lot of children into good behaviour.

    Then again, a Islamic “fatwa” against nuclear weapons could be considered the same as the prohibition of Christians from eating meat on Friday, or Jews from abstaining from pork products.
    It all depends on whether the believer thinks there might be bolts of lightning from the sky if they, um, sin.

  3. here’s another Islamic word Obama might want to acquaint himself with:


    it is, as I’m sure many of you know, the concept that Muslims not only CAN lie, but SHOULD lie, if it will further the aims of Islam and/or protect them against the infidels.

    there is no way anybody with an IQ over 65 could believe that Iran is not trying to build a bomb. Obama is either unbelievably naive or–well, let’s just leave it at unbelievably naive.

  4. I wish Seymour Hersh would hurry up and publish his book claiming that the raid on OBL was all ‘one big lie’. BHO is desperate for a deal – any deal – that will save his legacy. With Obamacare imploding as we speak and the disappearing 40 hr work week, Obama will go down as the worst POTUS in history. The Iranians are playing him for the fool that he is, along with Putin and Assad. How long will the LSM stay on the runaway train?

  5. He’s not naive, Keith. He’s complicit. The great imposter and the people he surrounds himself with are the enemy within. They are conspiring with our Islamo-fascist enemy to destroy America and our way of life, and they are almost there.

  6. Now is a good time to put the ringtone from one of the Great Bands of Georgia………..

    It’s the end of the world as we know it
    It’s the end of the world as we know it
    It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine……………

    The country survived the sequester. I was in DC visiting between the 2 govt shutdowns in 94. We survived that. The weekend we were there the WH was shutdown for Martha Stewart to decorate for Christmas and apparently it was the same weekend Bill, Monica and the Blue dress began their history. Come to think of it Martha Stewart should have given Monica some stain removal tips……..

  7. I honestly believe as the great one Mark Levin has stated about the Statist, Obama has lost all sense of reality and nearing what most people would call mental instability.

  8. Obama spews more taqiyah, just as he has done from the beginning. The ayatollahs and muftis lie, lie, lie and make up fatwas as they go along, both ridiculous and vicious. This particular fatwa is ludicrous, and Barry knows it.
