Our religion? What religion is that? Islam is not my religion, Mr. President. Is it yours?
Obama’s speech today at the prayer breakfast continues to send shockwaves through this country.
Contrary to his claims that Christians were slaughtering in the name of Christ, we see none of that. Nowhere do you see Christians beheading, setting alight, or crucifying non-Christians while screaming “Christ is greatest!” Obama had the unmitigated gall to bring up the Spanish Inquisition and what was done at the end of that 800-year-old war, as well as the Crusades (which Obama mentioned as well), which was against the Muslim hordes close to 1000 years ago. Had it not been for Charles Martel beating back the Muslim armies, Europe would look like the hellhole that much of the Middle East looks like today.
Obama freely brought up Christianity’s ancient history, but did not mention Islam’s 1400-year bloody history of jihadi war, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements. He failed to mention the 1,400 jihad against the Jews raging still today against Israel and Jews across the world. And, of course, he did not discuss the religion’s bloody jihad now. On the contrary, he falsely claimed it was being “hijacked.” Hijacked, how? Jihadists are citing Quran chapter and verse. They are using Muhammad as their “perfect example.” Obama never said Christianity had been hijacked a thousand years ago. But he did make the outrageous claim that Jim Crow and slavery were sanctioned in the name of Christ.
Jesus did not behead, kill, rape, or steal from conquered people, calling the theft righteous booty. Jesus did not marry a six-year-old. Mohammed did. And he slaughtered untold numbers, with his mujahadeen raping and pillaging every bloody step of the way.
Those of us who saw this coming back in 2008 and 2009 were excoriated, ridiculed, and marginalized for speaking the truth about Obama’s past. In 2007, I wrote an article for Israel National News entitled, “Op-Ed: Obama, the Muslim Thing, And Why It Matters.” Before Obama’s election, anyone who used his middle name Hussein was labeled a racist-anti-Muslim-Islamophobic-bigot. And yet the first call he made to a foreign “leader” after he was inaugurated was to terror leader Mahmoud Abbas. The first interview he gave was with al Arabiya television. His first world tour was an apology tour to the Muslim world, culminating in a speech from the leading Islamic university in Cairo, Al Azhar. He invited the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group to his speech in Cairo, despite the fact that it had been banned for decades. Then President Mubarak and his cabinet, America’s 30-year ally in that troubled region, could not attend Obama’s speech because of the terror presence.
It’s why I wrote my 2010 book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.
And now, eight years later, with the global jihad roiling the world thanks to Obama’s support and sanction, he deigns to tell us what our religion is.
President Dawah. The more jihad rages, the more Obama proselytizes for Islam. Muslim countries like Jordan are taking a much harder line than the USA. It’s outrageous.
The question isn’t whether Obama is or isn’t a Muslim. The question is, if he were a Muslim, what would he be doing differently? In a word, nothing.
Obama: “We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends.” (thanks to Robert Spencer)
Wait, what? He said, “our religion”? Back in 2008, when he referred to “my Muslim faith,” it was dismissed as a slip of the tongue. But now, if this AP report is accurate in quoting him, this is two “slips of the tongue” in the same direction — along with six years of foreign and domestic policies that aid and enable the advance of jihad and Islamic supremacism.
Of course, what Obama is really doing here is not saying that he is a Muslim, but making a moral equivalence claim that all religions are equally capable of inciting their adherents to violence. That is a dogma that is nearly universally held these days, and is designed to stymie resistance to jihad and Islamic supremacism.
“Obama condemns those who seek to ‘hijack religion,'” Associated Press, February 5, 2015 (thanks to Paul):
President Obama condemned those who seek to use religion as a rationale for carrying out violence around the world, declaring Thursday that “no god condones terror.”
“We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends,” Obama said during remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast. He singled out the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, calling the militants a “death cult,” as well as those responsible for last month’s terror attacks in Paris and deadly assault on a school in Pakistan….
