WHO CAN NOW DEFEND THIS LIAR?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 14, 2010) — Obama has apparently confirmed what many have suspected since the presidential campaign: that he is a Muslim, not a “committed Christian,” as he professed during the presidential campaign.
Last year the mainstream press would say only that Obama “seeks to win Muslim hearts and minds” as he prepared for his trip to Cairo and other parts of the Middle East. Their fawning included coverage entitled “Meeting High Expectations in the Middle East” and “In Turkey, Obama Reaches out to the Muslim World.” The media extolled Obama’s qualifications to do so by citing “his biography, which ranges from his international family, which included Muslim members, to his opposition to the Iraq War.”
Early in the campaign, Robert Gibbs, now White House Press Secretary, insisted that “Senator Obama has never been a Muslim.” Even Obama’s “Fight the Smears” website warned the public that “…shameful, shadowy attackers have been lying about Barack’s religion, claiming he is a Muslim instead of a committed Christian. When people fabricate stories about someone’s faith to denigrate them politically, that’s an attack on people of all faiths. Make sure everyone you know is aware of this deception.”
Another page declared him a “committed Christian” but presented no evidence of the claim. Obama defended himself by saying that he had “very little connection to the Muslim religion.” While campaigning, Obama repeatedly denied that he was a Muslim, even though he had previously referred to his school in Indonesia as “the Muslim school.”
According to Israel Insider, “…the accumulated research from primary sources who knew Obama from his childhood indicate that he was a devout Muslim, the son of a devout Muslim, the step-son of a devout Muslim and the grandson and namesake (“Hussein”) of a devout Muslim. He was registered in school as a Muslim and demonstrated his ability to chant praise to Allah in impressive Arab-accented tones even as an adult.”
Obama reportedly stated in one of his books that he attended “Qur’an class.” But the liberal media continued to refute his Muslim connections, taking whatever Obama said at a given time to be the truth, without investigating. Even when he slipped and said, “…my Muslim faith,” the media did not question him; they simply “corrected” him.
But apparently the deception was perpetrated by Obama, not toward him, if what the Egyptian Foreign Minister claims is true.
Obama has refused to participate in the National Day of Prayer in both 2009 and 2010. His first telephone call after being installed in the Oval Office was to Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority.
In 2007, Obama campaigned for his Marxist Muslim cousin, Raila Odinga, in Kenya. Odinga had promised that if he won the election, he would impose Sharia law in the country. After Odinga lost, violence broke out in which Muslims burned Christians inside of churches and looted businesses and homes. As many as 600,000 people were displaced.
The Right Truth blog has described a connection between Obama, his support for Odinga, Sharia law, and Obama’s half-brother in Kenya.
According to Don Swarthout, founder of Honor America PAC, the “Christian” church which Obama attended for 20 years promotes a belief system called “Black Liberation Theology” which is “that it is not faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ.” Dr. Anthony Bradley, a professor of theology and research fellow at the Acton Institute, described Black Liberation Theology as “the black struggle for liberation from various forms of ‘white racism’ and oppression.” He stated that Black Liberation Theology has Marxist roots and “actually encourages a victim mentality among blacks.”
A former Jew, Karl Marx wrote of the Jews in his essay, “About the Jewish Question,” “The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the moneyed man generally.…” “What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest. What is the worldly cult of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly god? Money … Out of its entrails bourgeois society continually creates Jews.… Emancipation from huckstering and from money, and consequently from practical, real Judaism, would be the self-emancipation of our era.”
In 2007, two Jewish researchers predicted that many Jews would help to elect Obama president, unknowingly bringing about “as much havoc, destruction and confusion to the world as all the 10 plagues together brought to Egypt.” They said that his name alone is clear evidence that he is a Muslim and not a “friend of Israel.” Based on a passage from the Torah, the researchers identified Obama as “the evil that will befall us at the end of days…”
The researchers wrote that Obama’s election would come about because “With our very own hands, we finance and work to put the wrong people in power over us…By putting into power leaders in Israel who don’t believe in G-d, we help bring about a spiritual collapse…We vote for these people, we put them in power, and we raise money for them.”
A recent article by Roger Gitlin appears to support that contention.
Israeli officials are now calling Obama a “Strategic Catastrophe” and a “real problem for Israel.” Some congressmen have voiced their opposition to Obama’s Israel policy, including members of his own party. One candidate for Congress has stated that Obama’s “actions have minimized our strategic relationship with Israel and needlessly endangered its national security,” and last year the House of Representatives approved a resolution affirming “Israel’s right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza.”
Obama has changed America’s policy of referring to terrorists as “jihadists” or “Islamic extremists” and promised Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, $400,000,000 in U.S. aid while Hamas, a terrorist group, “continues to wield power in the Palestinian territories” after carrying out suicide bombings and rocket attacks on Israeli civilians.
Turkey is reportedly working with the Iranians to build an industrial park on their common border. On June 8, DEBKAfile reported that Osama bin Laden has been hiding in Iran for the last five years with the knowledge of Turkish officials. Ryan Mauro, founder of World Threats, wrote that “The most significant outcome of the Mavi Marmara incident is that there can no longer be any doubt that Turkey has joined the anti-Western bloc that includes Hamas, Iran and Syria.”
Were Americans “victims of a bait and switch” in November 2008 perpetrated by Barack Obama and his handlers?
