Obama MIA at Historic March for Unity in Paris

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

On Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, a rally for unity and against the jihadists’ killing of Charlie Hebdo cartoonists drew 1.5 million people in Paris and more than twice that nationwide.

Leading the Paris procession were world leaders, including François Hollande of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, David Cameron of Great Britain, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, King Abdullah II of Jordan (a direct descendant of Islam’s prophet Mohammed), Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov of Russia, and the leaders of Mali and Turkey.

As CNN’s Jake Tapper noted:

“The United States, which considers itself to be the most important nation in the world [and a member of NATO], was not represented in this march — arguably one of the most important public demonstrations in Europe in the last generation — except by U.S. Ambassador Jane Hartley, who may have been a few rows back. I didn’t see her.”

Tapper admitted that “as an American: I was ashamed.”

Not to worry.

Rebel Yankee has located Obama!
