Obama Quietly Issues Statement on Terrorist Attack in Arkansas
After two days of silence, President Obama issued a statement Wednesday on the shooting of two U.S. soldiers by a Muslim militant in Arkansas--but the White House didn't even email the statement to its list of national reporters. Rather, the White House appears to have quietly released this statement to a local AP bureau in Arkansas (via Michelle Malkin):

“I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.” (emphasis mine)

In contrast, the White House blasted a statement to reporters via email about five hours after news broke that third-trimester abortionist George Tiller was murdered on Sunday:

I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.(emphasis mine)

The contrast between Obama's statements is striking: He's "deeply saddened" by the murder of a U.S. soldier, but "shocked and outraged" by the murder of an abortionist? The murder of a U.S. soldier is a "senseless" act of violence but the murder of an abortionist is a "heinous" act of violence?

Obama musters up moral outrage to denounce the wicked deed committed in Kansas, but seems almost resigned to the tragedy or "man-caused disaster" that occurred in Arkansas.

Why the different treatment of the two acts of terrorism? As Michelle Malkin wrote earlier today:

When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger. When a left-wing Muslim vigilante kills, he kills alone. These are the instantly ossifying narratives in the Sunday shooting death of Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller versus the Monday shootings of two Arkansas military recruiters.

Tiller’s suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, was white, Christian, anti-government, and anti-abortion. The gunman in the military recruiting center attack, Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad, was black, a Muslim convert, anti-military, and anti-American. Both crimes are despicable, cowardly acts of domestic terrorism. But the disparate treatment of the two brutal cases by both the White House and the media is striking.

Good info to make me even madder at our wonderful new president. The Bible commands me to love everyone, in the sense that I dont want to see them die without Christ. My preacher says you dont have to like 'em, you just gotta love em, but I must admit that I have a hard time doing either with this man.

Also, the Bible never tells us to kill another man just because of their beliefs. However, the Koran does!!!

I,m not surprized by President Obamas statements, Obama had much more in common with the abortionist than he did with the young U.S. Soldier. I will pray to God that he will comfort our Soldier's family. I too know what it's like to lose a son.

Soldier's, like many true Americans, take care of their own; I don't expect P.Obama, or any other politican concerned about votes, to take up the cause of sympathy for dead servicemen, which is sad to say. ANY senseless killing is an outrage, but to do it in the name of TERRORISM is a threat to our way of life; Our service people should be treated with the MOST RESPECTFUL admiration for their personal sacrifice for our freedom.
This isn't over yet either; Its a war "GOOD against EVIL" and I truely believe it is a war that will be fought until the end of human existance.

Oh-bummer association with some of the most outspoken haters of our fine selfless military speaks for itself. Friends with Louis Farrakhan and up until he ran for president spoke of his admiration for this piece of trash. Went to the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 plus years and listened to "god damn Amerika" and My personal favorite his notable association with William Ayers, one of the most despicable crap artists you could imagine. After an attempted bombing trial,I quote "what a great country we live in-guilty as hell and free as a bird". Ayers spoke of bombing schools to get politicians to listen to his rantings. Of course oh-bummer wouldn't react with any degree of true feeling for our solders death; HE HATED THEM AND WHAT THEY STAND FOR!

I'm still amazed that people don't see the true character of our new president. And, we had one president that is still praised, even though he was empeached for lieing to a Federal court. If any of us comman folks lied to a Federal court, we would still be in jail. When are people gonna wake up. And these type of people, being very hypocritical, put more value on the life of an animal than the life of a baby. And more value on the rights of a terrorist than on the rights of an American Soldier.

There's good and bad everywhere. The Koran gets taken "out of context" just as often as the Bible does.

I say that in as that the Koran does not condone murdering women and children, nor open slaughter. Different sects have killed each other for centuries over the local interpretation of a few passages. Car bombs and suicide attacks against fellow Muslims is not what the Prophet intended.

We Americans have enough trouble understanding Ireland. It would be like the Baptists declared war on the Methodists. I can't really wrap my brain around that kind of a situation.

So I really don't think anybody's God here was right.

And I do agree that there seems to be a bit of double-standard lately from Washington. And that that should get fixed.

I agree there can be, what you would call good Muslim's? But it seems that the Muslim religion has alot of extremist that are willing to die for thier god and 72 virgins they are also willing to kill innocent people at random. I know there are so called, Christians as well, that are extremist. Bombing abortion clinics and such. Who's God is right? Hmmm, Guess we'll all find out someday. This I know, my God doesn't promise rewards for murder and embracing hate. I say the only good TERRORIST, Muslim, Christian, Budaist, or Odin the wanderer himself, is one that is stopped. If that means deadly force, THEN SO BE IT!

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but I was deployed to Afghanistan last year. I asked questions about the Quran, no where in the Quran does it say if you martar yourself you will get any nnuber of virgins. The extremists tell people who can not read that. They believe it and some of you do too. I am not defending Muslims but you need to get your facts straight before you speak on behalf of all Muslims. Muslims are not the ones we are after it is the Extremeists.

usmcturkey,
I am not disrespecting you, please do not take me wrong when I ask. Did someone tell you that, or did you read it for yourself from the Quran? Also keep in mind the word I use in my opinion is "Extremeist" These people really believe in what their doing weather it's in the Quran or not. But, your point is well taken. The Bible is also distorted by extremist as well as other books and religions. I agree its not the Muslims, but Extremist Muslims, but they are both called Muslim. Thanks for protecting and serving our Great Nation.

I have not read either the Quran nor the bible, our interpreter who is of afghan decent but an American told me about the things that are not in the quran that the Taliban say are. For example in order to meet Allah you have to have all of your body. Hence when people blow themselves up they are not in one piece therefor would not meet Allah ever. I just think that the American people through around words way to much. Until I see people getting off there rearends and doing something about it nothing will change.

First of all, thank you for your service to oour nation.

Before you go telling us what the Quran and Holy Bible states on any issue, shouldn't you at least read it yourself? You are doing exactly what you point your fingers at others for; throwing words around with no basis of fact. Relying on your Afghan descent interpreter for the meaning of the Quran is like asking Joseph Smith or Jim Jones about their interpretation of the Holy Bible.

WA Mtnhunter thank you for your comment, all I am stating is that the Taliban say all these things are in the Quran but there not. We asked just about every Afghan that we could and they all said the same thing. While we did not ask for an interpretation we just asked if they said you got "70 something virgins."
A short paper prepared from information provided by (and used with the permission of) the Defense Language Institute (DLI) offers a fascinating look at the origins of the religion of the
Taliban. The stated objective of the paper is to “shed some light upon the Deobandi movement, the primary religious
influence among the Taliban in Afghanistan. While religion is a significant factor, it is only one piece in understanding the Taliban and Afghanistan situation. Historical, political,
economic, and social factors must also be thoroughly examined.Perhaps most importantly, tribal/ethnic divisions (there are more than 50 ethnic groups in the country) and the opium trade are major influences not only on the religious
expression, but also on the politics of the Taliban. . .”
The Deobandi movement, itself, began in an Islamic seminary in the city of Deoband, India, in 1866, that emphasized the rejection of foreign, Hindu, Western, and British
influences. The objective was to purify Islam from foreign elements and expose students only to the rich spiritual and philosophical traditions of Islam. The movement eventually spread to Pakistan where over 850 Deobandi madrassas operated between 1947 and 1975, predominantly along the Afghanistan/ Pakistan border. By 1996, the number of madrassas had grown to more than 2,500. The Taliban members are products of the religious madrassas in Pakistan, with the organization beginning as a “moral force called to arms for the purpose of crushing the immoral and corrupt Majahedim. . .” Do not know if this will help some understand what they think.
