    Eric Holder, top U.S. officials no-shows at Paris unity rally

    Displaying powerful symbolic unity, in fitting and proper testament to the defense of civilization, more than 40 world leaders linked arms to lead the mass march in Paris in resolve against Islamist terror.The United States of America, Barack Obama, President, was inexcusably absent from one of the most critical turning points in the war between radical Islam and the West since 9/11.
    No Obama. No Joe Biden. No John Kerry from State. No Chuck Hagel or Ashton Carter from Defense. Not even Eric Holder from Justice, who happened to have been in Paris.

    Neither President Obama nor Vice President Biden showed up — and in fact, America’s only representative was its relatively unknown and low-profile ambassador to France.
    Obama and Biden had empty public schedules Sunday, but the White House declined to comment on why they didn’t go.

    What a shameful display. And liberals wonder why rational opposition to Obama claim he is sympathetic to radical Islamists.

    This made me laugh. Obama is sympathetic to Islamist radicals, but yet he's being hammered by the left for unmanned drone attacks on Muslim extremists. That's the "rational opposition" we're discussing here. No, j-mac rational people wonder how one could claim such a thing given all the evidence and not the weak assertions of people who'd be against whatever Obama does.

    Mahmoud Abbas was there along with Benjamin Netanyahu...Where was Obama? Biden? Kerry? Why weren't they there? You can be as offended as you want at someone like me calling this Dhimmi President, but he shows with his actions on a daily basis....

    Besides just being a completely unqualified novice in office, he is also an A1 screw up. Although it is possible he was afraid of offending the islamo-nazis that would kill him in a second.

    The Dhimmi President who has no problem killing the leaders of Muslim extremists and throwing bombs over Muslims if he feels like it. I don't know if you actually know what "Dhimmi" means. Do you? Or did you hear it somewhere?

    I think Obama should not have gone, for security reasons. I think this was certainly a John Kerry move. He should have gone. He's the Sec. of State, that's his job. It was kind of a slap in the face to the French.

    Do you?

    Dhimmi, an Arabic word meaning "protected". Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination.

    Not just "kind of", but an actual diplomatic slap....After Kennedy was assassinated, De Gaulle got on a plane and came straight to our side....The French in many cases including helping fight the British for our very independence were there by our side, and Obama, with a clear schedule couldn't be bothered to get there? What a loser.
