Although he claims to be a Christian, many have argued for years that President Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim, despite the fact that his domestic policy agenda clearly indicates his secular humanist philosophy.

Allen West: “Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist”
However, that does not mean that the president cannot be an Islamist–one who supports fundamental Islam. In fact, it’s hard to look objectively at his foreign policy without reaching that conclusion. His support of Foreign Terrorist Organization Hamas in its barbaric attacks against Israel is one obvious example–but only one of many.
Still, in this age of political correctness, many might hesitate to pin such a label on the president. Unless you’re Allen West.
According to the Daily Caller, West recently said just that.

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel cites six examples of Obama’s Islamist foreign policy, including his support in Egypt for the Muslim Brotherhood–the group from which Hamas and al-Qaeda originated.
Obama also recently lifted a 30-year-old ban that prohibited Libyan nationals from attending flight schools or nuclear science programs in the United States, which West points to as further evidence of his Islamist bent.
“The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals,” the former Florida congressman wrote in a recent column. “The only plausible explanation for many actions taken by President Obama and his administration is that they are working counter to the security of the United States of America.”
West could be right, although his claims of such wanton treason seem a bit extreme. On the other hand, so are this president’s actions in ignoring the best interests of America both at home and abroad. And West is certainly not alone in his belief that Obama is orchestrating these crises.
There is, however, one other plausible explanation. We should remember that, prior to his five years in the White House, President Obama had essentially zero executive experience.
He may simply not have the first clue about what he’s doing.
