While the mainstream media wallows in the unpleasant effect John McCain’s apparent nomination is having on the GOP, are liberals also intentionally ignoring the undeniable void of influence the two Democratic candidates pose in the Middle East? No, it’s not that Barrack and Hillary both completely lack foreign policy experience or that they have far-out, socialist ideologies. Their handicaps are even more outrageous than that.

Islamic terrorists hate average, American infidels pretty much equally -- but how much do they hate the ex-Islamic infidel who converts to Christianity? According to the hadith (which is a collection of the words and deeds of Muhammad) Muslims must kill apostates. Naturally, Allah will reward the murderers on judgment day.

In fact not long ago, Michelle Malkin wrote about a British imam’s daughter who converted to Christianity. The woman (whose real name is not given) said, “[She knows] the Koran says anyone who goes away from Islam should be killed as an apostate.” The woman now lives under police protection. She says, “[Her Muslim family members] are following Islam to the word. But [she does] not think every Muslim would act on that.”

No, not every Muslim would slaughter an ex-Muslim. Not every Muslim remains silent about jihad against America either. But the Muslims who do murder in obedience to Allah -- as well as the surplus of Muslims who do not openly or vigorously condemn those Muslim butchers -- make identifying friendly Muslims from terrorists rather difficult.

Regardless, does any sane person believe that Muslim terrorists would not use Obama’s “maverick” conversion to Christianity only to inflame greater hatred towards America in the Islamic world? If Allah smiles upon jihadists who blow-up, behead, and butcher ordinary infidels, imagine the incentive and motivation for obeying his command to kill an apostate who is the head of the Great Satan itself.

Ironically, the Left consistently proposes America can accomplish more through diplomatic negotiations than by military power. But seriously, how would Muslim leaders like Iran’s Ahmadinejad welcome an ex-Muslim infidel who is President of the United States? Is there anyone who has not seen what those sociopaths are prepared to do to a man who draws cartoons of their prophet and to a teacher who names a stuffed animal Muhammad? Only an imbecile would honestly think they would be open to diplomatic negotiations with a President named Obama who ditched Muhammad in favor of Christ.
