Yesterday, July 7, a day after Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had met at the White House, in an interview with Channel 2 (Israel) News, Obama was asked by the reporter about the anxiety that some Israelis feel toward him. The Sociopath said, “some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion.”
No, Hussein. It’s not your middle name that makes Israelis feel uneasy about you. It’s the fact that you told Egypt’s foreign minister you’re Muslim.
Last month, ignored by the MSM, the blogosphere was abuzz with two major Middle East media outlets — Nile TV International and Israel Today Magazine – reporting that in a meeting earlier this year with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit, Obama said that both his father and step-father were Muslim, as well as his Kenyan half-brothers; that he is sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda; and that he himself is Muslim. Obama also confided to Gheit that after he’s straightened out domestic issues, he would show the Muslim world how to handle Israel.
At the time, I was skeptical of the reports because they were hearsay. But recent news of Obama’s new mission to NASA makes those reports credible.
On July 5, it was reported that NASA’s chief, Charles Bolden, in an interview with Al Jazeera said that Obama’s new assignment to NASA is to improve America’s relations with the Muslim world, specifically “to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering”
The claim that Obama has admitted he’s Muslim was made by Victor Mordecai in an opinion essay, “Obama and the Muslim Agenda,” for the magazine Israel Today, no. 136, May 2010. The essay begins on page 12. This is what Mordecai wrote:
“[Obama is] a Muslim president flying under the radar with no one politically incorrect enough to stand up and say: ‘The Emperor has no clothes!’ Today, the United States has a president by the name of Mubarack Hussein Obama. Until proven otherwise I believe he is a Muslim.
My wife, Rachel, who monitors Arab language broadcasts for Israel Radio, picked up a revealing statement on the ‘Round Table Show’ on Egypt’s Nile TV. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, who told him that he was a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and stepson of a Muslim stepfather, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Muslims, and that he was sympathetic to the Muslim agenda. He asked the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American issues (like healthcare reform), he would show the Muslim world how he would deal with Israel.”
Alas, we almost certainly will never get an admission from the Sociopath that he indeed is America’s first Muslim president. This is because of the Islamic principle called Takeyya (also, taqiyya) or Al-Takeyya.
In his article, “Lying Islam,” for the Islam Review, scholar Abdullah Al Araby writes that “unlike most religions, within Islam there are certain provisions under which lying is not simply tolerated, but actually encouraged.” One important provision is the principle of Al-Takeyya, whereby:
“Muslims are permitted to lie as a preventive measure against anticipated harm to one’s self or fellow Muslims. This principle gives Muslims the liberty to lie under circumstances that they perceive as life threatening. They can even deny the faith, if they do not mean it in their hearts. Al-Takeyya is based on the following Quranic verse:
‘Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution (prevention), that ye may Guard yourselves from them (prevent them from harming you.) But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.’ Surah 3: 28
According to this verse a Muslim can pretend to befriend infidels (in violation of the teachings of Islam) and display adherence with their unbelief to prevent them from harming him. Under the concept of Takeyya and short of killing another human being, if under the threat of force, it is legitimate for Muslims to act contrary to their faith. The following actions are acceptable:
- Drink wine, abandon prayers, and skip fasting during Ramadan.
- Renounce belief in Allah.
- Kneel in homage to a deity other than Allah.
- Utter insincere oaths.
Araby concludes with this warning:
“when dealing with Muslims, one must keep in mind that Muslims can communicate something with apparent sincerity, when in reality they may have just the opposite agenda in their hearts. Bluntly stated, Islam permits Muslims to lie anytime that they perceive that their own well-being, or that of Islam, is threatened.”
Obama has repeatedly demonstrated he’s a liar.
If he lies about shady Chicago mobster Tony Rezko, saying “I barely know” him when he has known Rezko for 17 years and had real estate dealings with him, then Obama can lie about his Muslim faith. [See HERE for a dizzying laundry list of Obama's lies even before he became president.]
And if Obama can lie about his alleged maternal uncle having helped liberate the Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, when it was the Soviets, not Americans, who liberated Auschwitz, then Obama can lie about his Muslim faith.
Oh, incidentally, Obama has no maternal uncle because his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was an only child.
