Despite Obama’s conversion to Christianity (READ: Black Liberation Theology), there’s a substantial history of Islamic influence in his past.
“My muslim faith”
Slips happen when he doesn’t use a teleprompter:
The Los Angeles Times looked into his Indonesian residency:
His former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama’s grade-school teacher as childhood friends, say Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended. That registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion class.
The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque. “We prayed but not really seriously, just following actions done by older people in the mosque. But as kids, we loved to meet our friends and went to the mosque together and played,” said Zulfin Adi. … Obama’s younger sister, Maya Soetoro, said in a statement released by the campaign that the family attended the mosque only “for big communal events,” not every Friday.
Recalling Obama’s time in Indonesia, the Times account contains quotes that Obama “went to the mosque,” and that he “was Muslim.”
Summarized, available evidence suggests Obama was born a Muslim to a non-practicing Muslim father and for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father. At some point, he converted to Christianity. It appears false to state, as Obama does, “I’ve always been a Christian” and “I’ve never practiced Islam.” The campaign appears to be either ignorant or fabricating when it states that “Obama never prayed in a mosque.”
Nevertheless, being born from a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim stepfather, having been enrolled at school (in Indonesia) as a Muslim and having attended Friday prayers at the local mosque as a young boy, he cannot be seen by Muslims as anything but a Muslim, especially because he has never explicitly rejected the faith of his fathers nor said anything negative about it.
So, if he converted doesn’t that mean he’s an apostate in the eyes of Islamic law?
Obama was raised and received tutoring in the Islamic tradition. For someone who isn’t a muslim he sure as hell has enough Islam in his back ground.
Radical muslim extremist and businessman, Khalid al-Monsour, on behalf of Saudi Prince al-Waleed, helped him get onto the Harvard Law School, raised money for him, and was a political mentor.
His cousin Raila Odinga, is a Marxist dictator in Kenya who collaborated with muslim extremists to enforce Sharia Law in a predominantly Christian region. When he failed, he sent his Islamofascist thugs into the streets where they proceeded to murder, rape, and burn down churches full of people. After 3,000 people were killed and over a half million homeless, they finally named him co-president.
Odinga considers his relationship with Barack Obama to be a ‘close personal friendship’
When Obama visited Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and praised him at rallies in Nairobi. Obama has never repudiated nor distanced himself from this punk.
Maybe he sees another opportunity to ‘negotiate without preconditions’.
Arabs for Obama: An attendee from the Brookings Institution at the 5th Annual U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha relates this story:
……all anyone at this conference really wants to talk about is Barack Obama.
A friend from the Gulf tells me her young relative was so excited about the Democratic candidate that he tried to donate money over the Internet, as he’d heard so many young Americans were doing. Then he found out he had to be a U.S. citizen to do so. Another young woman, visiting from next-door Saudi Arabia, said that all her friends in Riyadh are “for Obama.” The symbolism of a major American presidential candidate with the middle name of Hussein, who went to elementary school in Indonesia, certainly speaks to Muslims abroad.
ACORN hasn’t made it to Doha yet.
Obama’s background, affiliations, and unwillingness to separate himself from Islamists and other radical extremists, is a preview of coming attractions should he make it into the White House. Even if he doesn’t, this sonofabitch needs to be sent packing back to his neighborhood in Chicago, preferably unemployed.
