Red Meat: Is Obama A Muslim?

Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum, begins a five part series in the Washington Times:

If President Obama and his supporters wish to focus on biography, of course, that is a game two can play. Already, the temperate, mild-mannered Mr. Romney has criticized Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign as “based on falsehood and dishonesty,” and a television ad went further, asserting that Mr. Obama “doesn’t tell the truth.”

A focus on openness and honesty is likely to hurt Mr. Obama far more than Mr. Romney. Mr. Obama remains the mystery candidate with an autobiography full of gaps and even fabrications. For example, to sell his autobiography in 1991, Mr. Obama claimed that he “was born in Kenya.” He lied about never having been a member and candidate of the 1990s Chicago socialist New Party. When Stanley Kurtz produced evidence to establish that he was a member, Mr. Obama’s flacks smeared and dismissed Mr. Kurtz. Mr. Obama’s 1995 autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” contains a torrent of inaccuracies and falsehoods about his maternal grandfather, his father, his mother, his parents’ wedding, his stepfather’s father, his high school friend, his girlfriend, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. As Victor Davis Hanson put it, “If a writer will fabricate the details about his own mother’s terminal illness and quest for insurance, then he will probably fudge on anything.”

Into this larger pattern of mendacity about his past life arises the question of Mr. Obama’s discussion of his faith, perhaps the most singular and outrageous of his lies.

I don’t normally go in for this sort of thing but neither am I against it. The reason is simple: fairness. Not the bogus “fairness” of the “progressive” lexicon which really means “agree with my socialist ideas”, but true, 14th Amendment, equal treatment under the law fairness. Pipes’ article points out the reason that I support these inquiries:

President Obama has come out swinging against his Republican rival, sponsoring television advertisements that ask, “What is Mitt Romney hiding?” The allusion is to such relatively minor matters as Mr. Romney’s prior tax returns, the date he stopped working for Bain Capital and the nonpublic records from his service heading the Salt Lake City Olympics and as governor of Massachusetts. Mr. Obama has defended his demands that Mr. Romney release more information about himself, declaring in August that “the American people have assumed that if you want to be president of the United States that your life’s an open book when it comes to things like your finances.” Liberals such as Paul Krugman of the New York Times enthusiastically endorse this focus on Mr. Romney’s personal history.

It is a goose and gander sort of thing. I know that in the political arena, we aren’t constrained by the rules of evidence – but I do believe that if you introduce a line of questioning or demand something of one side, albeit in the court of public opinion, I have just as much right to explore that line as it applies to you and expect that you also provide the same evidence to me that you demand from me.

So in my mind, the Washington Post hit piece on Romney’s high school days opens the door to questions about that period in Obama’s life. The kerfuffle about Romney’s business career and tax returns, including the felony charge allegations by Obama spokeshole Stephanie Cutter and the outright lies of ads by the Priorities USA super PAC (run by professional slimeball Bill Burton), throws open the door to Obama’s academic and community organizing work life. The author’s bio that Obama let stand uncorrected for 16 years and his own admission to creating “composite” facts in his book also open the door to questions regarding his veracity and credibility on almost everything.

And the whisper campaign about Romney’s Mormonism, media “examinations” of the LDS Church and questions if Mormons are actually Christians, opens the door to Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s education in Muslim schools and if whatever brand of religion Obama professes to belong to is Christian as well.

If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out.

  1. All OWEbozo has done all of his ENTIRE life is lie to advance either his standing or admirability. At least the last couple decades he can blame it on Chicago…………..because it’s not only common there, it’s expected.

  2. Obama couldn’t survive an HONEST examination of his past — which is why “The Communist” and “The Amateur” and “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” have so easily started his destruction — and why they are not reviewed on the lame stream media.

    As for his being Muslim: he is more Muslim in deed than anything else. OH! And that Rev Wright/Christianity thing? Not so much. Look into Black Liberation Theology and you’ll find Marxist roots. Look into Wright and you’ll find HE said he “helped Obama become a Christian WITHOUT renouncing Islam.” NO CHRISTIAN could do that because Islam is the antithesis of Christianity. Islam denies Christ and the Trinity. So decide for yourself, but the EVIDENCE supports the possibility of stealth Jihad in the White House.

  3. Under Sharia law, Barack Hussein Obama is a muslim because his father is a muslim. But since his father was not around and his mother’s motivations were more about being anti-Western than pro Islam, he was not raised in the faith. And being a Christian is better for an American politician, so he went that route as an adult.

    But if he was just some regular Iranian who made this switch under these same circumstances, he could potentially be killed (certainly arrested). The same is true in Saudi and probably Pakistan.

    • It seems that only these radical Muslims are persisting with Sharia law. It’s against their religion to put forth their laws in a foreign country with different laws, but I know it still happens because of several cases in America and Europe.

      B. will argue with me about this, but I truly believe it is lunatic, uneducated imams spouting their hate, and some folks buying into it.

      • Kells,
        I think you have a point, but when it comes down to a choice………………. my bet is that most Muslims will follow the Sharia law and side with their religion against America or any other countries laws in opposition to them.

        • Dusty,

          The Qur’an commands that Muslims are to convert the world to Islam and that there should be ONLY Sharia/Islam. Kells is wrong. To the extent that there is “moderate” Islam, it is pushed by what MUHAMMAD would call apostates: Muslims whgoi have changed what he said to suit their purposes. If Sharia is taken in a strict sense, these “moderates” can be legally killed as apostates. In fact, this is often the source of much Muslim on Muslim violence.

          Thi “confusion” all comes from the PC falshoods we have been taught about Islam. All you have to do is read the Qu’an and Hadith. I gets pretty easy to understand after you do that.

      • You are correct: I WILL argue with you because the Qur’n does NOT command uslims to obey foreign laws over Muhammad. In fact, Muhammad taught the opposite.

        But then, neither you nor Greg bother letting the Qur’an get in the way of what you want to believe about Islam, do you?

        • Wrong! I’m sorry, but I watched a video of a very informed and educated imam who said that it is the law of Islam to obey another country’s laws. Oh, but what does he know? The root of the problem is the charlatans out there spreadin their crap.

          • If the other country contradicts Sharia, it is against Muhammad’s command’s to obey that law rather than Muhammad/Allah.

            If I were at home on my computer, I would quote the Qur’an for you. But — just like I said — you are happy with the immam and not the Qur’an. Naturally that guy knows Islam beter than MUhammad, right?

            • It is quite easy for one to interpret hate rather than love; it happens in Christianity, as well. Hate will follow hate; love will follow love. Think on this verse my little puddin pie: Jeremiah 5:21

              Do I think the Muslims are the wrong faith? Yes. Do I think they are all evil? No. I should like to give them the verse I was presented at confirmation: Mathew 7:7

              For you I would offer a parable: Luke 10: 30-37

            • The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, “I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray”. The Prophet (PBUH) also said, “Each child is born in a state of “Fitrah”, then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring. Have you noticed any that were born mutilated?”

              According to Mohammad, We are All born Muslim, B, so I guess you are technically correct. Why didn’t you use those verses to bolster your argument?

              Of course, Obama Sr. had renounced Islam, and was an atheist, Obama’s Mom was certainly no Muslim. And one is supposed to repeat the Shahada with faith and conviction in order to be considered a Muslim. And President Obama is left-handed…

              Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When any one of you intends to eat (meal), he should eat with his right hand. and when he (intends) to drink he should drink with his right hand, for the Satan eats with his left hand and drinks with his left hand.

              • I didn’t use them because they do not apply in the sense you are using them. This is what hapens when you cherry pick quotes — you get stuff out of context.

                As for the other “evidence” you list to “prove” Obama can’t be Muslim: IT IS USELESS! Muhammad gave Muslims permission to do ANYTHING but deny Allah in their hearts – so long as it furthers Islam. He didn’t even define that, he left it to the individual believer to define for himself.

                Read the entire bloody Qur’an and Hadith, then we’ll talk. Until then, you’re still ignorant of the religion — just like Kells.

                • Your merely quotes irrelevant is insufficient, and a dodge. Your constantly declaiming your status as expert on Islam does not make it true, or you would realize that there are as many interpretations of the Quran as there are are interpreters.Your interpretation is as invalid as that of al qaeda. You are not the expert you claim to be, just a chicken little who mistakes pebbles for boulders

                  • Greg,

                    Until you demonstrate that you have actually read the entire Qur’an AND the Hadith, you’re nothing but an ignorant pundit crying into the storm because those who have refuse to give his uninformed opinion any standing.

                • I will concede to being ignorant of their religion, but I’m very sure of my own, which is why I dedicated a few verses for you to chew on. Naturally, you probably are too thick to understand, but if you would like, I can sum it up for you.

                  Furthermore, I should like to add that all these folks who thumbs down me would do well to read the verses themselves…..if they’ve got a Bible!!

                • What I find to be continually interesting here, is Greg’s “atheistic fascination” with Islam. To denounce the presence of any “God”, and then turn around and be so blatantly intrigued with the notion of a “God” reveals what has to be one of two conditions …

                  1. Greg is searching to find meaning or evolve
                  2. Greg has a grind to pick with B, and will spare no expense of his time to do so.

                  I’m not sure which (or either truly apply), but one thing I am sure of … for one not to believe in “God”, Greg certainly spends a lot of his time searching the verses, and extrapolating meanings.

                  Food for thought.
