Sarah Palin on Syria: U.S. Should ‘Let Allah Sort it Out’ (VIDEO)

Speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Washington D.C., Sarah Palin raised a few eyebrows when she questioned President Obama’s decision to send arms to the Syrian rebels, suggesting that we should just “let Allah sort it out.”

“Militarily, where is out commander in chief? she asked. “We’re talking now more new interventions. I say, until we know what we’re doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he’s doing, well, in these radical Islamic countries who aren’t respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, ‘Allah Akbar,’ I say until we have someone who knows what they’re doing, I say let Allah sort it out.”

Palin’s comments seem especially callous in light of the brutality and staggering civilian toll of the conflict. Nearly 90,000 people have been killed in the Syrian civil war between Bashar al-Assad’s government forces and various rebel factions.

Listen to Palin’s comments in the video below. Her full remarks can be found here.

    Sarah Palin to accusing anyone of not knowing what they are doing is laughable! This woman would lose a debate with a bag of rocks, the bag of rocks is much smarter. She is so ignorant that she thinks she is being “cute” with her “Allah Akbar” remark because she doesn’t know that it is merely Arabic for God is Great or that she is referring to the same God she professes to worship. Why doesn’t she just go away?

    That wasn’t her opinion when she was running for VP. Amazing anyone still listens to her.

    It just shows how lucky we all were that this religious fanatic never set up her pulpit in the White House.

    Had she even the slightest bit of diplomatic decorum she could have expressed the same sentiment saying she felt it was an internal conflict and that the US is already involved in too many conflicts on foreign shores to risk involvement.

    Instead she has to act the part of a religious partisan and mock ~25% of the world’s population joking about the slaughter of Muslims at the hands of other Muslims as if she is happy that it is occurring.

    She lacks the appropriateness filters necessary for those holding high office and would have been a diplomatic liability abroad as well as domestically.

    I really wish the press would stop showing footage of Palin – we do NOT need to see what the latest stupidity is and she does NOT deserve the publicity. she’s an idiot and anyone with any common sense knows it.

    Ignorance is so rampant among these people because they believe that it is a virtue and that education is evil!

    I wish she would do what Bab Bush said to do stay in her Alaska!! Palin is like a cockroach she just keeps breeding lies. She makes up 1/16th lies a fact checker wouldn’t make it 12 hours with out breaking and to say that comment about Allah Akbar she’s stupid disrespectful. Mr. Cull, she just don’t get it I don’t know the bible that well yet I know that it has a quote from The Lord God it says I Am Known By Many Different Names. Allah is one of those names.

    These Evangelicals also know nothing about Islam. They insist when I try tho tell them that their God is the God of Abraham just as the Jews and Christians, that their God is a moon god and has nothing to do with “their” God. They also refuse to accept that the Qur’an does not call for the conversion of all to Islam or their extermination, to the contrary it teaches that Muslims are to be tolerant and accepting of ALL People of the Book, which is defined as Muslims, Jews and Christians.
