“Obama the 'christian:' Peace be Upon Mohammed”
by Jerusalem NewsWire - Stan Goodenough   
June 6th, 2009

US President Barack Obama deceitfully sought to knit together Christianity, Judaism and Islam in his speech in Cairo Thursday, grossly misrepresenting the latter religion with a smile on his face and sincerity in his voice.

The American leader, who has Islamic roots but professes to be Christian, was on a quest for "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world."

To establish "common ground" and find what he was looking for, Obama asserted "the truth:" That America and Islam...share common principles - principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."

This statement was delivered, straight-faced, into the teeth of history, and in the capital of one of many Islamic states universally known to treat its people with an iron hand of injustice, and to demonstrate zero tolerance towards those of other faiths who seek to share their beliefs.

Referring repeatedly to "the Holy Koran" - a book whose author charges both Judaism and Christianity with having perverted "God's" (Allah's) "revelation" to man - Obama wowed his audience.

"As the Holy Koran tells us: 'Be conscious of [Allah] and speak always the truth,'" he said, before proceeding to speak anything but the truth, (though Muslims would agree that it was true.)

"Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."

As documented exhaustively by scholars like Bat Y'Or, Islam forces Jews and Christians to pay a second-class citizen tax and live a second-class citizen existence or become Muslims. Other non-Muslims have been forced to convert or die. And any Muslim who converts to Christianity must recant or be executed. In some Muslim states, like Israel's peace partner Jordan, just selling a piece of land to a Jew is a capital offense.

Obama's ignorance of Islam (which means submission to Allah) was further revealed by his statement "that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't."

Islam is nothing if it is not what its founder and most venerated follower, Mohammed himself, practiced. This includes terrorism, sexual perversion and massive oppression of free peoples.

Partnership between Islam and America must really be based on this?

The president, who has adamantly denied being any type of Muslim despite his family background and his middle name - Hussein - said he considers it "part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."

According to him, the population of America for which he is responsible includes "seven million Muslims" - the outside number according to demographers, who admit that it's impossible to get a number because the US Census is forbidden by law from asking questions about religion.

At the most then, Muslims comprise 0.5 percent of the US population, but more likely 0.3 percent. Nonetheless, said Obama, there should be "no doubt [that] "Islam is a part of America."

Speaking to complaints that "rules on charitable giving have made it harder for (American) Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation," the president said he is "committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfil zakat."

Not referenced was the fact that some of these restrictions were designed to stop abuse by major Muslim "charities" that acted as fronts to funnel funds to groups like Hamas.

Obama listed the benefits already enjoyed by American Muslims, including "a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders.

"It is important for western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit," he added.

European nations are being rapidly Islamized precisely because they have opened their doors to Muslim immigrants and allowed them to set up Islamic enclaves in their towns.

"Indeed, faith should bring us together," Obama argued. "That is why we are forging service projects in America that bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That is why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah's Interfaith dialogue and Turkey's leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. "
