Anyway, for those of you who, like me, like to sound cleverer than they are and who do not actually know the mythology behind the whole Trojan Horse idea, here it is from Wikipedia, the site that helps stupid people to sound intelligent.
'The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War, as told in Virgil's Latin epic poem The Aeneid and by Quintus of Smyrna. The events in this story from the Bronze Age took place after Homer's Iliad, and before his Odyssey. It was the stratagem that allowed the Greeks finally to enter the city of Troy and end the conflict. In the best-known version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of 30 men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the Horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the Horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greek army entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.'
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts in massive, er, wooden horses! To add fuel to the fire, today, blogger The Catholic Knight has given us a link to Israel Today, a Jewish newspaper, in which Israeli officials are quoted as saying that it is not Iran who is Israel's greatest threat...but Obama. Yikes and double yikes! The article begins...
'Although Israeli officials publicly play down the crisis in relations between Jerusalem and Washington, privately the language is much different. Sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describe Obama as a "strategic catastrophe" for Israel.'
Officials in the Prime Minister's Office, speaking on condition of anonymity to the nation's top newspapers, see the Obama administration as a serious threat to the future of the State of Israel. On the record, Israel and the US have a "strategic partnership that is unbreakable"; off the record, the terminology is blunt to say the least.
"President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have drawn a clear line, supporting the Palestinian position at the expense of Israel," said one Netanyahu confidant. "It is insane, it is sick. Relations between Jerusalem and Washington are simply disastrous; the situation has never been so dangerous. This US President wants to establish a Palestinian state at any price and hand them Jerusalem on a silver platter."
Netanyahu has repeatedly distanced himself from such statements, but commentators say the government speaks with a forked tongue. "Israel's relations with the US are at a low point, and Obama poses a danger to Israel," wrote Nahum Barnea in the nation's biggest newspaper Yediot Ahronot. The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.
And then the bombshell is dropped...
'"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term "Islamic extremism" no longer be used in official government documents and statements.'
This would, also, of course explain his rather lacklustre patriotism, his deep bow to the Saudi King when visiting and his recent wading into the 'Ground Zero Mosque' debate and would also serve to explain why he as recently as 2006, Barack Hussein Obama raised money and campaigned for a Kenyan presidential candidate who promised to enact Islamic Shariah Law once elected.
Of course, the Egyptian foreign minister could be telling absolute porkies and Obama does appear to be the kind of man who would tell a Jew he was Jewish, a Christian he was Christian and a Muslim he were Muslim if he thought there were some benefit in doing so, and were Obama discovered to be a Muslim (and not a very good Muslim at that, given his love for abortion and gay marriage rights) that would not be the end of the World, since Islam is a major world religion and Presidents are free to practise whatever religion they choose. However, the revelation would be very embarrassing for the administration, as he would be roundly condemned for making the habit of lying, deceiving, dissembling and downright filthy fibbing an art form hitherto unwitnessed perhaps since even the World began, having campaigned during the election as an abortion-supporting, gay marriage-supporting, Blairite Christian of the lowest denomination. Still, like the babies Obama doesn't mind being left to die in cases where an abortion procedure has 'not worked', such a brand of Christianity does have a 'shelf-life' and it wouldn't be surprising if he opted for something more, how shall we say, radical? Obama is a Trojan Horse for a whole raft of ideologically liberal policies that denigrate human dignity.
Whatever the truth of Obama's religious affiliation, nothing should surprise us nowadays. After all, it becomes more and more obvious that New Labour and the political success of Tony Blair was just a gigantic Trojan Horse for Peter Tatchell and militant homosexual activists. Today, as The Telegraph reports, Catholic Care, the last Catholic adoption agency faces closure after the Charity Commission that it could not avoid considering same sex parents as potential adopters. Nice one, Tony! Equality Act!? My arse! Can those kids have a sports centre too, yeah?! I mean a sports centre makes everything okay, doesn't it?!
