BUT IS HE GUILTY OF THAT HIMSELF?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 5, 2015) — On Saturday, Obama released a video message to Americans in which he extended Passover and Easter greetings.
On Friday, he and his family reportedly celebrated a Seder supper, which marks the Jewish holiday of Passover. “Michelle and I joined Jewish families in America, Israel and around the world as we told the story of an awesome God who liberated a nation with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and set them on their journey towards the Promised Land,” Obama said.
Jesus and his disciples shared a Seder supper on what has come to be known at Maundy Thursday, the day preceding Good Friday.
This year, the first night of Passover coincided with Good Friday in a rare occurrence.
In the video, Obama decried anti-Semitism, which is defined as “discrimination against or prejudice or hostility toward Jews.” Obama said that the story of the freeing of the Israelites from Egypt has “given strength and courage to countless men and women over the years…Jews facing anti-Semitism…”(00:40).
Obama has himself been accused of anti-Semitism by commentators, citizens, bloggers, a writer at New York Magazine, and by Senior Editor-at-Large for Breitbart News, Ben Shapiro, with extensive references.
In the video, Obama also referenced his claim to be a Christian and his intent to celebrate Easter on Sunday. He and his family attended a Baptist church on Sunday morning, where the pastor proclaimed that “This is not selfie time.”
The Huffington Post gushed that “The Obamas looked exceptionally stylish today to attend Easter service at Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia. The White House released a photo of the first family, including the first dogs Bo and Sunny, via Instagram with the caption ‘Happy Easter!'”
Pope Francis celebrated Easter Mass at the Vatican by reminding celebrants of the “persecution of Christians” throughout the Middle East and numerous countries in Africa.
Later in the video, Obama said he would give thanks “for the chance to live in a country where everyone has the right to worship and pray and love as they choose,” an apparent reference to his support of “gay” rights.
According to The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission:
There is a spiritual emergency in America.
Barack Obama is in the process of trying to recreate the Christian faith in his own, very liberal and unorthodox image.
Built on a foundation of radical Black Liberation Theology, theological liberalism and post-modernism, Obama is undermining historic, biblical Christianity while claiming his is a Christian. In the process, he is defaming the Christian faith.
By declaring he is a Christian, yet denying Christianity’s most essential truths and traditional morality, Obama is associating Christ with some of the most wicked practices imaginable, all of which are condemned in the Bible.
By any historic or biblical standard, Barack Obama is not a Christian.
In negotiating with the rogue nation of Iran over its nuclear program, neither Obama’s representatives nor Obama himself addressed the concerns held by Israel, which Iran wishes to destroy.
As he had in his Seder supper video, Obama said that Americans should know that “better days lie ahead” after again invoking the 1960s civil rights movement by which blacks gained more equality and the right to vote without intimidation.
In 2009, Obama admitted to having “come from a family that includes generations of Muslims.” “I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed,” he said in a different address. In a 2008 interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Obama referenced “my Muslim faith,” after which Stephanopoulos very quickly “corrected” him to say, “You mean your Muslim faith.”
In August of last year, writer David Horowitz called Obama a “pretend Christian” and “pretend American.” “What he is instead is a world class liar,” Horowitz concluded.
Obama reportedly told The New York Times’s Thomas Friedman after “inviting” him to interview him at the White House that “I completely understand Israel’s belief that given the tragic history of the Jewish people, they can’t be dependent solely on us for their own security. But what I would say to them is that not only am I absolutely committed to making sure that they maintain their qualitative military edge, and that they can deter any potential future attacks, but what I’m willing to do is to make the kinds of commitments that would give everybody in the neighborhood, including Iran, a clarity that if Israel were to be attacked by any state, that we would stand by them. And that, I think, should be … sufficient to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see whether or not we can at least take the nuclear issue off the table.”
Friedman claimed that Obama possesses a “personal affinity with the Israeli people.”
The day after Netanyahu won re-election, Friedman penned an op-ed in which he said of Netanyahu’s last-minute campaign statement that he no longer favored a “two-state solution” to the Palestinian-Israel conflict:
I doubt, in the heat of the campaign, Netanyahu gave any of this much thought when he tossed the two-state solution out the window of his campaign bus in a successful 11th-hour grab for far-right voters. To be sure, he could disavow his two-state disavowal tomorrow. It would not surprise me. He is that cynical. But, if he doesn’t — if the official platform of his new government is that there is no more two-state solution — it will produce both a hostile global reaction and, in time, a Palestinian move in the West Bank for voting rights in Israel, combined with an attempt to put Israel in the docket in the International Criminal Court. How far is the Obama administration going to go in defending Israel after it officially rejects a two-state solution? I don’t know. But we’ll be in a new world.
Savage asked Shoebat if it were true that “‘Hussein’ is the name of the martyr founder of Islam,” to which Shoebat replied, “That’s correct.”
“Most likely, his father was Sunni,” Shoebat said of Obama. He contended that Obama is “basically creating divisions” at the moment. “Any way, shape or form Obama can divide, he will do it,” he said, including in “global affairs.”
Shoebat believes that Obama took “revenge” upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by exposing Israel’s plan to neutralize Iran’s nuclear capabilities. Fluent in Arabic, Shoebat said that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father’s words spoken from the White House lawn on May 31 of last year showed that “Obama’s affiliation with Islam and Islamists is neck-deep” (6:53).
Shoebat said that Robert Bergdahl has been working to release all prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, as is Obama’s desire. He went further to say that the nation is seeing “treason from the top.”
Obama “regrets” not having closed the prison “on his first day in office.”
Savage commented that Obama’s supporters have attempted to destroy any opposition, likening the ideological struggle to “David and Goliath.” “Eventually, Obama will fall,” Shoebat responded.
Shoebat said that he believes Obama’s goal is to “unite” Shia and Sunni Islam by focusing on Jerusalem. He claimed that the U.S. military is being used to accomplish Obama’s alleged goal.
“Sharing the wealth comes from an Islamic concept,” Shoebat told Savage in response to his questioning as to why Obama wants illegal aliens to enter and remain in the country in unprecedented numbers.
“He is the slickest con man I ever saw in my life,” Savage said at one point.
