President Obama is a liberal academic, not an Islamist as Allen West claims, unless he's hiding his Muslim faith exceedingly well like a Jewish converso in 1500s Spain who's only publicly a Christian. Granted, his is a rather liberal Christianity with a Liberation Theology tint to it, but were it not for having a ethnically Muslim father and step-father in his early days, that charge would have very little to stick to.
West rattles off six points of pro-Islamist policies, not all of which are all that valid.
1. The unilateral release of five senior Taliban back to the enemy while the enemy is still fighting us.
You wouldn't call Israeli conservative governments Islamists, and they've traded with Hezbollah and Hamas at times while they were still at odds with them. They also traded at lopsided ratios.
You could easily make a case that a captured soldier knew the risks of being a soldier and should be willing to stay up if it means keeping a large number of enemy combatants under wraps, but prisoner exchanges were regular items from the Cold War.
He was supposed to give Congress a heads-up on the release, so it was very bad form, but it looks more liberal than Islamist.
2:Providing weapons of support to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government — F-16s and M1A1 Abrams tanks — but not to the Egyptian government after the Islamist group has been removed.
He helped an elected Egyptian government and help back support from a junta who kicked out said elected government. That one is more pro-democracy than Islamist. If you don't let folks have a chance of winning an election, their only outlet for effecting change is to take up arms.
3. Negotiations with Qatar and Turkey, two Islamist-supporting countries.
Last I checked, Turkey is in NATO. It's current government is something of a bad actor as of late, helping ISIS for a time and lending support for Hamas, but it is a nominal ally of the US. Qatar has been less helpful, backing the Islamist side in the Libyan civil war, making them fair game for a critique.
4. Negotiations with Hamas, a terrorist group.
Who's also the de-facto government of Gaza. Given that they have the stated goal of wiping Israel off the map, there is little to negotiate about. A valid critique of Obama.
5. Returning sanction money, to the tune of billions of dollars, back to the theocratic regime led by Iran’s ayatollahs and allowing them to march on towards nuclear capability.
Both 4 and 5 are exhibits of Obama's liberal faith in diplomacy; if you play nice with others, they'll play nice with you. Bad policy in this case, but it's more a Harvard Law than madrassa than gets him there.
6. Obama’s evident support of Islamists in Libya.
I'm not all that clear on the evidence on that one. He was anti-Gaddafi and wound up letting some unsavory folks get weaponry as part of backing the opposition in the first civil war (a second one between moderates and Islamists is ongoing), but they seem to be passive-to-pro-moderate in the second one.
He's a liberal small-d Democrat, and a somewhat naive one at that. That better describes his geopolitics than "Islamist" which is the 21st century analogue to "Commie symph."
