Our First Muslim President?

While earlier this week, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit stated that President Obama informed him in confidence that he (Obama) was a Muslim, Pieder Beeli's article today examines some more consistencies in the Obama-Muslim background connections.....

"Often we can tell the truth about what someone believes by performing an inferential or forensic analysis. We analyze what is implied rather than what is explicitly stated. This is especially helpful for the case of Obama for whom there are over 150 documented lies.

In light of the Islamic sanction of taqiyya, this sort of analysis could be especially valuable. Taqiyya has its origins in the prophet of Islam who allowed one of his followers to lie in order to kill someone who mocked the prophet.

When speaking of the origins of Islam, why does Obama use the word "revealed"? In his Cairo speech, Obama said, "I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed [emphasis added]." One does not expect a Christian to suggest that God revealed Islam to Muhammad for the simple reason that if God did such, then Christianity is wrong...Why would not Obama instead choose to say, "when Islam was invented" or "fabricated – or at least use the more equipoise "when Islam began…"? I find this especially telling in that I have not been able to find Obama use the term "revealed" to speak of God's doings in a Judeo-Christian context.

Similarly, when referring to the foundational book of Islam, why does Obama regularly and forcefully append the word "holy"? Obama calls the Quran, "the holy Quran." Again, one does not expect a Christian to suggest that the Quran is holy, because the Quran and the Bible contradict each other. If the Quran is holy, it should also be true – and if the Quran is true, then the Bible is incorrect. So while Obama's use of the term "holy Quran" is telling in itself, it is especially telling when contrasted with Obama's description of the foundational book of Christianity. In contrast, I have not heard Obama append the world "holy" onto the Bible.

Likewise, why is the Obama administration directing that ex-Muslim, Christian and firstborn son of one of the founding sheikh's of Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef – who has saved thousands of Israeli and Palestinian lives from Islamic suicide bombings – be extradited from the U.S. and send to Palestinian territories where he is sure to face certain death? (Note: Supporting link as to the goodwill efforts of Hassan Yousef, click here.. Link)"

Beeli wraps up the article by citing Matthew 7:16, You shall know the tree from its fruits. Indeed, to any impartial observer, it's plain to see, as Beeli notes "By examining Obama's fruits, we find his faith to be far more rooted in Islam than in Christianity."

UPDATE: It would appear that the link to the New York Times article by Nicholos Kristof in which " Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’ and in which Kristof wrote "Obama recited, ‘with a first-class [Arabic] accent,’ the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer." is now back up and accessible on the website of the Times after earlier being taken down for some unknown reason.

Oh no! Obama is participating in the time-honoured photo-op in local garb! (I'm referring to the photo of him in Somalian clothing during his visit to Wajir)

Here's Bush:

And is Obama a Muslim?

You're very fond of conspiracy theories.

I tend to agree that he is "more Muslim" than Christian. I honestly don't think he's either. He lacks the ability to commit to anything. He's the quintessential coward!

This only harbours what is already known for most anti Obamacrats.

I can only think he is a traitor to America.

It's not just the garb Flute. I believe there is no question that Obama had a Muslim upbringing.

Mike and Photogr, I think the word that best describes Obama and his religious beliefs is opportunism. He was perfectly happy listening to Jeremiah Wright's baloney for years and then throwing him under that increasingly crowded bus when he became a liability. The guy does not appear to be grounded in anything really and may actually be closer to the atheism of his father for all we know.
