If you wanted to describe author Avi Lipkin most accurately, you might say he is the male version of Pamela Gellar. Lipkin believes that Islam is not a real religion, 'Moslems' (the use of Moslem over Muslim indicates hostility) worship Satan and, our very own President Obama, is focused on the destruction of Israel and making America 'a Moslem Country.'
Lipkin appeared on Alan Colmes' Fox News Radio Program and shed some light on why hard-line, right-wing Israeli sympathizers have such an irrational disdain for our president.
Alan spoke with author and lecturer Avi Lipkin, who has written books such as Islamic Rivalry and Is Fanatic Islam A Global Threat? Lipkin recently talked about why he thought President Obama made the Iran nuclear deal in order to cause an Iran-Israel war, then use the distraction to cause a Muslim takeover of America. Alan found these views extreme, and wanted to confront Lipkin on the air.
Avi's wife Rachel Lipkin, who is a native of Egypt and a translator who speaks Arabic and Hebrew, claims she heard from Aboul Gheit, the Egyptian Foreign Minister in 2009, that the president said he is a 'Moslem.'
Alan Colmes called out Avi very quickly on the fact that he seems to get his 'facts' through many degrees of separation.
COLMES: 'You're repeating third and fourth-hand information coming to you from your wife, based on information that you've never witnessed because you WANT TO BELIEVE THIS.'
LIPKIN: 'Well you're not married to my wife.' (Avi is not just the king of hyperbole, he's Captain Obvious too). The things that she picks up (he says she 'picks up' information at least a dozen times in the interview) indicates that he's a Moslem.
Colmes plays a clip from just before the Arab Spring where Lipkin says that all Christians, Jews and Moslems in the Middle East know that President Obama is a Moslem. Saying Moslem is culturally insensitive, perhaps worse than saying 'Oriental' rather than Asian, but a guy like Avi Lipkin could care less who he offends. He uses his wife's first twenty years of life in Egypt as proof that his assessment of Islam is accurate. Apparently, Islam dictates that Muslims should plan to kill Jews on Saturday and kill Christians on Sunday. Lipkin assures us this is the gospel truth, because his wife told him.
There will be an additional ten million 'Moslems' who will be fleeing ISIS and coming to the United States, which is all part of the plan. This plan was devised by President Obama and his Saudi cohorts, to make America 'Moslem,' or at least that's what his wife heard on a radio station in Saudi Arabia. Colmes ripped him apart for his lack of original, first-hand knowledge and his unsubstantiated claim that President Obama worships Satan. Avi seems unaware of the very real tensions between Arabian Peninsula Nations and the USA over who should be leading the fight against ISIS.
Lipkin went (predictably) Birther and claimed that the president was born in Indonesia and raised as a Moslem. He also said that all churches in America have been infiltrated by Muslims who have pretended to convert to Christianity. He admits that it wasn't all churches, as Colmes made his assertion sound as absurd as everything else about the man.
COLMES: 'So you want to ban mosques, you want to ban Muslims, and how does that fit our Constitution?... How would banning Muslims fit in with our Constitution?'
There's no way for Lipkin to answer this question without invoking Godwin's Law.
LIPKIN: 'Islam is worse than Naziism.'
COLMES: 'Naziism is not a religion.'
LIPKIN: 'Neither is Islam.'
Interestingly enough, Lipkin disavowed his previous claim that Muslims worship Satan, which qualifies it as a religion. Mr. Lipkin believes only what he wants, evidence and facts be damned. Sounds eerily like the GOP and their favorite leader, Bibi Netanyahu.
Alan tries explaining to Avi that we don't have Sharia Law in America and the overwhelming majority of our government's leaders are Christian, despite Avi's claims that Islamists have already infiltrated our country. Lipkin said he hopes to meet Alan in person and instructs him to read his seven books before they meet. Alan, in a rare wise-ass moment, says,
'Did your wife write those books too?'
Not catching on to the sarcasm, Lipkin says,
'I'm working on an eighth book, it's about my wife's life.' *facepalm*
I guess someone can be more narrow-minded than Pam Gellar?
