Obama Empowers Muslims Again

Posted by avideditor on December 17, 2010

Obama administration worked to “empower” Muslims in U.K.

While those Muslims grew steadily more “radicalized.”

“Obama admin sought to ‘empower’ British Muslims,” by Aaron Klein for WorldNetDaily, December 16:

The Obama administration directed embassy employees in the U.K. to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community, according to a classified U.S. diplomatic cable released by Wikileaks and reviewed by WND.A separate cable summarized statistics showing a rise in the British Muslim population and increased radicalization there. The cable referenced a poll that showed 32 percent of Muslims on U.K. campuses believe killing in the name of religion is justified, while 40 percent want Muslims in the U.K. to be under Islamic law, or Shariah.

A cable dated Feb. 5 directed as a “top priority” for the U.S. embassy in Britain to conduct outreach to the Muslim community there.

“Although people of Muslim faith make up only 3 to 4 percent of the U.K.’s population, outreach to this key audience is vital to U.S. foreign policy interests in the U.K. and beyond. … This is a top Mission priority,” stated the cable.

The cable summarized a plan involving “engagement and community capacity-building” to counter “violent extremism.”…

Looks as if it worked like a charm.
