Michele Bachmann accused President Barack Obama of provoking terrorist attacks by skipping a conference with a right-wing pro-Israeli lobbying group.
The former Republican lawmaker said ISIS extremists attack whenever Obama downplays their threat or does something else — such as make a historic trip to Cuba instead of stoking anti-Islamic fears with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, reported Right Wing Watch.
“Our feckless U.S. president appeared unfazed by the message he portrayed of American incompetence and historic irrelevance,” Bachmann wrote in a column for World Net Daily.
“In fact, the president appeared pleased with himself and seemed to revel in his infallible cleverness,” she added. “Only he could break the barriers of isolation his misguided predecessors had painstakingly built. Only he could vouchsafe freedom against attack from legions of murderous Communist regimes and Jew-hating ayatollahs.”
But, she said — not without some satisfaction — “the turn of world events humiliated him,” and she wondered if ISIS terrorists might even have been doing God’s will when they bombed an airport and subway station in Brussels, Belgium.
“Maybe our president’s humiliation comes in a manner so devastating it makes one wonder whether the Creator of humankind isn’t reminding this world of the inferiority of foolishness in the face of wisdom,” Bachmann said.
“The president once again mocked his nemesis, the Jewish people and the nation of Israel, by cleverly turning the international press corps toward his brilliant work in Cuba, instead of covering ongoing Islamic attacks against the Jewish state as outlined that very same day at the annual pro-Israel AIPAC meeting in Washington, D.C.,” she added.
Bachmann blamed the Brussels attacks on Obama and European leaders “who traffic in the dangerous fantasy of multicultural diversity, globalization and one-world nonsense.”
“No, we aren’t all the same,” the retired lawmaker said. “We don’t believe the same things, nor do we hold to the same values.”
“The choice is ours. Which leaders will we choose?” she added, and then apparently addressed Obama. “Not little big man. Not today.”
