Obama takes a stupid pill: Don’t be afraid of Iran, Nukes are ‘contrary to their faith’

At a Monday news conference in the White House with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Barack Obama said we have nothing to fear from a nuclear Iran because nuclear weapons are against Islam.

It’s a good thing Merkel wasn’t sipping a beverage at the time or she may have either choked or performed a classic spit-reaction.

Here’s the setup:

“We are presenting to them [Iran] … a deal that allows them to have peaceful nuclear power but gives us the absolute assurance that is verifiable that they are not pursuing a nuclear weapon,” the president said.

Now for the zinger:

“And if in fact what they claim is true, which is they have no aspiration to get a nuclear weapon, that in fact, according to their Supreme Leader, it would be contrary to their faith to obtain a nuclear weapon….”

And what part of the Quran did that come from? Is it in the “don’t eat bacon” section, or the “beat your wives daily” part?

And here’s another question: If nukes are so against their religion, what’s with all the testing of delivery systems and nuclear talks with North Korea?

Even more to the point, neighboring Pakistan is just as Islamic as Iran. In fact, it’s official name is “Islamic Republic of Pakistan.” It’s been a nuclear power since 1998.

In an interview published Monday, Obama faulted media hype for ramping up the public’s fear of terrorism, and said the real danger was global warming.

It all makes one wonder if he’s living in the same world as the rest of us.
