Santorum Says Obama’s Foreign Policy Is Allowing Radical Islam To Spread and Take Control

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that President Barack Obama’s foreign policies have been impotent and illegitimate at best.  He’s thrown our closest allies under the bus while kissing the hind ends of what most of us believe to be our worst enemies.  He has virtually gotten in bed with the Mohamed Morsi and Egypt’s ruling radical Muslim Brotherhood.

When it comes to overt enemies like Iran and their President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, all Obama has done is offer to talk and talk and talk and talk.  All the while, Ahmadinejad just continued to push his nation toward nuclear weapon capability and threatening to annihilate Israel.

Former Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum (R-PA) recently commented on Obama’s failed foreign policies in an interview with Newsmax.  He blames Obama’s foreign policies as allowing radical Islam to spread and grow throughout the world:

“What’s going around the world is a response to his policy of allowing radical Islam to take root, saying that we will negotiate with it — which is what we’re doing when we negotiate and we deal with the Muslim Brotherhood and other types of radical organizations, like Iran.”

“We are setting a template that is allowing this type of viral strain of Islam to gain further and further ground in this region and it’s a threat to the country, and it’s obviously a very present danger right now to the state of Israel.”

Referring to Obama’s policies on Iran and Israel, Santorum said:

“He says he doesn’t want Iran to have a nuclear weapon, but he’s been very clear that he is not going to authorize any type of actions on the United States that will have any detrimental impact to civilians in Iran.”

“Well, you can’t stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon unless you take away their capability of doing so — and to do that requires taking down their electric grid, taking other things that would stop their development of this technology, which would have at least some impact on civilians.”

“The president’s been very clear and his positions don’t jibe.  You can’t say I want to stop Iran and then say I won’t do anything policy wise that will stop Iran, and that’s why Benjamin Netanyahu has said what he said: that we have to have policies that draw a red line and this president is refusing to do it.”

“That is putting Israel in a box and requiring Israel to contemplate doing things that heretofore they wished they didn’t have to, which is to unilaterally act.”


Santorum goes on to discuss the White House’s failure in handling the embassy attacks and protests that are taking place in the Middle East and the main stream media’s failure to report honestly what is really happening.

Considering Santorum’s comments and the actions or should I say inactions of our current U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I believe we would be much better off with someone like Santorum as Secretary of State under President Mitt Romney.  At least Santorum doesn’t have a close personal aid and advisor whose mother is connected to Egypt’s radical Muslim Brotherhood.
