Obama's support of the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt during the "Arab Spring" has created a majority for Islamic organizations in the Egyptian Parliament.
Obama has created a Middle Eastern political environment that has taken Egypt's recent modernization back 1000 years.
This is typical of Obama's foreign policy "accomplishments", which have literally destroyed - with Obama's own bare hands - the Middle East as we know it.
This past week, the Islamist-dominated parliament in Egypt prepared to introduce a law allowing husbands to have a sexual encounter with their dead wives up to six hours after death. I kid you not.
Islamic culture and Sharia Islamic Law condones necrophilia, which is defined as relations with a dead body.
Last year, during the early stages of the Arab Spring, which bears no resemblance to a spring season associated with blossoming and renewal, but rather to a coil that having been pressed down further and further is about to explode - well, anyway, at the early stage of this "Arab Spring", Imam Abdelbari Zemanmi, a famous and respected Imam in Morocco, issued a fatwa in May of 2011, stating the following; "Since a good Muslim couple will meet again in Heaven, and since death does not alter the marital contract, it is not a hindrance to the husband's desire to have relations [sic] with the corpse of his (freshly) deceased wife." He has also stated that "marriage remains valid even after death".
Egyptian Islamic parties have taken this fatwa seriously and have recently submitted the above-mentioned law.
This law is just one of a number of recent laws that are being legislated in the Egyptian Parliament that are not simply anti-women, but clearly violate basic human rights of women.
Proposed laws that will lower the age of marriage of women to 14, and limit women's rights in the fields of education and employment are only the tip of the iceberg.
The ever increasing tendency of Islamic societies to disregard how Islamic culture is perceived by Western societies has become rampant during the Obama Presidency, because the Islamic forces know that the national media in the United States and Europe voluntarily refrain from reporting and ignore anything that contradicts the politically correct depiction of Islamic societies. This is done so as not to hinder Obama's re-election.
By not reporting or giving necessary coverage and exposure to these primitive and barbaric practices by Islamic societies - who consider necrophilia as culturally intrinsic - Americans and Europeans are being denied basic information concerning how Islamic societies would operate in Western nations, should they ever have the ability to do so.
As unbelievable as it may seem, necrophilia is being openly legislated and encouraged by legally elected Islamic political parties in Egypt, the largest and most powerful Islamic nation not only in the Middle East, but in the world.
These Islamic political parties are supported by the Obama administration and have been described by the White House and the Department of State as strategic partners of the United States.
The implications for other Islamic nation wannabe's is mind boggling. A culture that sees nothing wrong with necrophilia is a culture that is way beyond the pale and has literally nothing in common with Western culture and modern civilization.
Speaking of a universal morality and of basic human rights is simply irrelevant to a culture that condones and encourages this kind of behavior. These Islamic legislative initiatives reveal to us all how Islam will envision human society in the future if the Islamists get control of a country's political leadership.
Over recent months, much has been printed and debated about the true intensions of the Iranian regime concerning a nuclear arsenal. In light of this aptly named "farewell intercourse" law, what are the real implications for a nation and society based on laws that see nothing wrong with relations with dead bodies - as far as rationality and logical is concerned?
What kind of leverage can be used against leaders of a cultural environment that are capable of pleasure with the corpse of a beloved?. Can we honestly believe that these Islamic political leaders will respect our human rights? Will they hesitate even for a moment to bomb New York, London, and Paris, should they get the capability to do so?
As Obama begins in earnest his bid for re-election, in which he will ask for more time to "get the job done". Let's not forget that the Arab Spring was of Obama's doing; he is responsible for letting the Islamic genie out of the bottle.
Obama cannot blame anyone except himself, even though he will try. Obama is very much the master orchestrator of the Arab Spring, his misguided and inadequate actions have produced a political reality in the Middle East that has made the necrophilia law a reality.
