OBAMA RESURRECTS HIS ‘FAIRYTALE FATWA’ FABLE OF AYATOLLAH FATWAING AGAINST NUCLEAR WEAPONS
— Looks Like Obama’s Fairytale Fatwa — Masquerading As The Truth — Is Only The Latest Marxist Strategy
By Judi McLeod
This week isn’t the first time that President Barack Obama would have us believe the “Fairytale Fatwa” that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons.
According to a recent Obama dissembling effort: “Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons,
Meanwhile, it looks like this Fairytale Fatwa -- masquerading as the truth -- is only Obama's latest Marxist strategy to get people to believe that the current Ayatollah -- and all ayatollahs ever after -- have been, and will be, converted to good guy status by terrorist defender Barack Obama.
Other administration officials — including Secretary of State John Kerry and Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes — have previously referred to the ayatollah’s reported fatwa against going nuclear, in the context of the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran.
And both Obama and Hillary Clinton have made reference to this nuclear fatwa fable:
For example, Obama sent a verbal message to Iran’s supreme leader earlier this year that acknowledged it, and Clinton also recently mentioned it.
“They have also made it clear in many statements,” Clinton stated, “most recently in the fatwa that was issued by the supreme leader, that they don’t seek nuclear weapons and that they have no such program.”
So Obama has been dragging out the nuclear weapons Fairytale Fatwa since at least 2012; and it seems to resurfaces again every time he makes his annual Nowruz [Iranian New Year] statement.
But as far as is known, the nuclear fatwa isn’t written down anywhere. The esteemed Middle East Media Research Institute MEMRI does not include it in the hundreds of fatwas issued to date. The ‘Fairytale Fatwa’ is only written in Obama’s head!
Indeed, nuclear bombs could sprout alongside the pansies down the garden path which Obama is trying to lead the unsuspecting West.
For example, one day after Obama resurrected the Ayatollah’s fatwa against nuclear weapons last week, bloodthirsty Iranians were shouting “Death to America” in Tehran.
Not only that but Ayatollah Khamenei immediately stated that he agreed with the chant-shouting crowd.
More proof that Obama has been the Supreme Leader of Iran’s most useful idiot to date.
As Cliff Kincaid reported two years ago, “President Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on September 24 that '...the Supreme Leader [of Iran] has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has just recently reiterated that the Islamic Republic will never develop a nuclear weapon.'"
Translation: A fatwa is an authoritative religious edict, thus guaranteeing that the Iran regime has ruled out nuclear weapons.
“But the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) says: “In fact, such a fatwa was never issued by Supreme Leader Khamenei and does NOT exist; neither the Iranian regime nor anybody else can present it.”
MEMRI Founder and President Yigal Carmon told FoxNews.com, “There is no such fatwa. It is a lie from the Iranians, a deception; and it is tragic that President Obama has endorsed it.”
As such, Obama’s claim appears to be part of the “propaganda, hype and disinformation” from the regime that former Ambassador John Bolton refers to in his Monday column in The Wall Street Journal:
“It is shocking that, with the future of the Middle East at stake, Obama would accept and promote a claim that is highly questionable, and base his policy of engagement with Iran on what may be a blatant lie."
Bolton continues: “During the Reagan years, there was a concerted effort to expose and challenge Soviet disinformation and propaganda activities, such as the claim that AIDS originated in a Pentagon laboratory. Under Obama, it seems that questionable claims made by foreign regimes are accepted, rather than rebuffed, and made into the basis of nuclear weapons policy."
Meanwhile, it looks like Obama’s Fairytale Fatwa is only his latest strategy to get people to believe that the current Ayatollah -- and all ayatollahs ever after -- have been, and will be, converted to good guy status by America’s appeaser-in-chief!
