Michele Bachmann says Obama wants to 'lift up the Islamists' and allow Sharia law in America

Representative Michele Bachmann has claimed that Barack Obama is determined 'to lift up the Islamists' and bow to their 'ultimate demand' of imposing Sharia law on America.

In an extraordinary interview at the weekend, the woman who once had high hopes of being the Republican candidate in this year's presidential election, said that Americans should study Islamist texts just as those worried about fascism pored over Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' in the 1930s and 1940s.

In an extended on-air conversation with conservative radio hosts Jan Markell and Eric Barger, Bachmann contended that Obama was endangering the United States and Israel by supporting radical Islamists. 'President Obama, if you look at nearly every decision he has made about this issue, it is to lift up the Islamists and to take down Israel.' >>>

Bachmann accused the Obama administration of supporting the Organisation of the Islamic Conferenceís (O.I.C.) advocacy of blasphemy laws, despite its public opposition. She said that Americans had to study Islamic materials in the same way that people studied Adolf Hitlerís Mein Kampf during the Second World War.

>>> Bachmann continued: 'Because he laid out very clearly what his intention was, he wasnít hiding it, the Islamist does the same thing. They do not hide it, they lay it out very clearly. But what weíve never seen before is the United States aiding and abetting that goal.'

Bachmann drew attention to an October 19th 2011 letter to the White House from an array of Muslim groups protesting antic-Islamic bias as 'proof positive' that there was a plan to impose Sharia law on the U.S. 'That's what I spent my whole year doing was talking about this issue of what the O.I.C. was trying to do with their ten year plan and all of these efforts in the Obama administration.
