Ponder the dire significance of the extraordinary story from MSNBC(!) last Friday, reporting on US “incoherence” in the Middle East, the exploding chaos there, and the shocking news Arab states like Egypt, the Saudis, and UAE are withholding intelligence and launching attacks without consulting the US. Why? Because they don’t trust Obama not to leak information to Iran. In seeking closer ties with Iran, Obama is threatening every other strategic US relationship in the region and candidly committing alliance-cide against America’s closest ally there, Israel.

The president, as chief executive and commander in chief may be the captain of foreign policy, but the Senate, representing the American public, has a Constitutional role, which Obama is deliberately evading.

What is happening is historically unprecedented. It makes Nixon-goes-to-China look like a Junior League milk and cookies outreach. Obama is pursuing a one-man foreign policy of realigning the US in the Middle East, ending our friendship with Israel, forging ties with Iran, and facilitating, or at least benignly accepting, the expansion of Iran’s interests, influence, and agents throughout the region.

This profound agenda is not one he ran on. It is not disclosed to, or understood by, the American people. It is not vetted or discussed in high circles of military and security leadership. It is contrary to long and widely held understandings of US security interests. It is a covert one man revolution.

rifqa-rallyLongtime readers of Atlas Shrugs remember the long hard fight we waged to save Rifqa Bary’s life. Rifqa was an Ohio teen who converted out of Islam in secret. Her mosque, the Noor mosque, spied on her and told her devout parents, who threatened to kill her.  It was a long, ugly struggle. Rifqa’s parents were represented by CAIR-Ohio, which fought long and hard to return her to the family who threatened to kill her. Despite their money, power and influence, they did not succeed. Rifqa is alive and thriving.

Why am I bringing all of this up? Because one of of mosque’s former leaders, its scholar in residence, Dr. Salah Sultan, has been sentenced to death on terrorism charges in Egypt.

That is who is leading mosques in...
