Well, there is certainly sufficient reason to believe he is. In the first place, no one disputes the fact that his father and his step-father were both Muslims. And according to Sharia law, if the father is a Muslim, that automatically makes the son a Muslim.
Obama grew up in Indonesia, attended an Islamic Madrasah where his religion was listed as “Islam.” His first official phone call as U.S. President was to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. His first foreign trip was to Islamic Egypt. His first major foreign policy initiative proclaimed in his June 2009 Cairo speech was an extended hand to the Muslim world. His stated belief is that the Muslim call to prayer is the “prettiest” sound in creation. He expresses deeply reverential references to the “Holy Koran,” but has never referred to the Bible as “Holy.”
But let’s set all that aside for the moment.
We have lived through presidents who were Episcopalians, Unitarians, Baptists, Quakers, and even a Jehovah’s Witness (Eisenhower). We now have the prospect of electing a president who is a Mormon. Does it really make any difference? Barack Obama could be just a far-left radical Progressive.
Name just about any policy area, and everywhere the objectives of radical Progressives and militant Muslims dovetail so closely as to be virtually indistinguishable.
Both Islamists and far-left radicals see the U.S. as the focus of all evil. The Islamists call the U.S. the “Great Satan.” Progressives call America a greedy, imperialist aggressor and vicious oppressor; the paramount enemy of mankind that must be “transformed.” The Progressives, taking the lead from the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Columbia University professors Cloward and Piven and radical author Saul Aliksky, all want to destroy America from within. The Islamists just want to wipe her (and Israel) off the face of the earth. Is there much difference between the Jeremiah Wright’s famous “God Damn America” sermon and the Muslim chant “Death to America”?
Both Islamists and radical leftists demand a redistribution of the world’s wealth from the industrial West to the impoverished third world. Lacking education, technical and managerial skills, or work ethic, they believe handouts from the more accomplished Western nations are their rightful due. And how different is that from the tens of $millions given the Blacks and others in our own country as “reparations” for deeds that none of us did, and for which none of them suffered?
Islamists hate Christianity, and so do radical Progressives, as we see in their effort to remove of all such religious reference from our society, except for those that are permanently chiseled in the stone of the Washington Monument, the Department of Justice, various County Courthouses, and in the hearts and minds of the vast majority of Americans!
Muslims and Progressives share another point of agreement in their anti-Semitism and hostility toward Israel. The Reverend Jesse Jackson and Minister Farrakhan being good examples, as well as President Obama’s open hostility toward Israel and his rebuff of its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Is it just a coincidence that Obama has demanded that Israel return to its indefensible 1967 borders, which is exactly what the Islamic Palestinians want? Which foreign leader is the one Obama hates and despises more than anybody else? Chávez? Assad? Ahmadinejad? No, it’s Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu. Enough said.
The American left and the Middle East potentates also see eye to eye on the issue of America’s dependence on imported oil. Obama’s staunch refusal to develop America’s abundant energy resources and the roadblocks he has been throwing in the path of the domestic oil industry are in perfect harmony with the policy objectives of the Muslim oil sheiks of Arabia. The Arabs wish to keep America dependent on their oil by preventing the U.S. from developing her vast hydrocarbon resources.
Under the guise of preserving the planet, home-grown Progressives have been successful in imposing their “green” agenda by outlawing offshore drilling, challenging oil shale “fracking,” and stalling the building of the Keystone pipeline — all of which would produce thousands of jobs during this period of economic depravity. Different motivations but with the same result; America’s continued dependence on Middle Eastern oil.
I could go on, but you get the idea. Is Obama really a Muslim? Probably. But when it’s all said and done, it doesn’t make a dime’s worth of difference. The Islamic will is being implemented right here in America, just as surely as if imposed by the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei himself.
