OBAMA: Muslim? Christian? Something Else? The Non-Muslim Muslim

Written by Allan Erickson on February 12, 2015

It is laughable listening to the discussion about Obama’s refusal to call Islamic terrorism what it is: Islamic terrorism.  It is laughable because for years Obama‘s words and actions have revealed his sympathies, loyalties he acquired growing up, connections to Islam he strengthened as a youth.  He has refused to call it Islamic terrorism from the day he walked on the national stage in 2004.  So why does Obama refuse to call it Islamic terrorism?

Part of the answer is Obama agrees with Jihadists that fighting in Allah’s cause, no matter the methods, is justified.  Publicly he expresses disgust, denying atrocities are in any way connected to the teachings of Islam, but he knows better, privately harboring support.  This is why he will never join Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi  in calling for an Islamic reformation to confront terrorism.  (el-Sisi ruined Obama’s vision of an Egypt ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood.) For Obama, Muslims are justified by their theology. And he agrees they are an oppressed and exploited group, only fighting for equal rights.  He can say one thing and do another in the furtherance of Islam because that is permissible in that tradition.   It is called “taqiyya”.  

Obama learned  this narrative from his father, a Kenyan Muslim, and many others.    In Islam, the religion is passed down from father to son.  Most of Obama’s relatives in Kenya are Muslims. In 2006 Obama helped friends and relatives attempt to establish Sharia law in Kenya, something the Kenyan government condemned. Muslims are family, and any reference to Islamic terrorism, in Obama’s mind, casts family in a bad light. Remember, the Muslim religion was reinforced by his step father in Indonesia, where as a boy, Obama is described as being a devout Muslim attending mosque and the call to prayer.  We should have learned later on when Obama bowed to the Saudi King.

Notice recently Obama blamed media for exaggerating the threat posed by Islamic terrorists, another strong indicator he seeks to protect Jihadists, shifting blame to news organizations.   Last week he used the National Prayer Breakfast to elevate Islam and denigrate Christianity, more stark evidence revealing his true position.

It must finally be acknowledged Obama is largely a Muslim devoted to protecting Muslims no matter what atrocities Jihadists commit.  Obama drank the kool-aid a long time ago. He insists Islam is a religion of peace whose practitioners are the victims of western Christians. (He knows “peace” comes only when everyone submits to Islam, thus, it is a religion of “peace”.)  Obama sees himself as the champion of Muslims, a group he seeks to defend, protect and promote as part of his overall mission to confront and defeat the exploitative, oppressive, despicable dominate culture made up of white Christians, and Jews, in the main.   

This explains why Obama publicly proclaims total devotion to Israel but behind the scenes he stabs Netanyahu in the back.  This has gone on for years.  Obama funds terrorists seething to destroy Israel.  He funds Hamas.  He funds Al Qaeda.   He funds Jihad in Libya and Syria but cuts benefits, pay and support for our own military.

Obama’s own writing reveals his loyalties and his closest associates confirm his devotion to Islam. 

His long standing political adviser in Chicago for years, Valerie Jarrett, is senior adviser to the President.  Speculation abounds she is a Muslim given her Iranian heritage and her connections to radicals and Islamists throughout her adult life.  Sources here, and here.

Jarrett has long been intimate with all the Chicago/Muslim connections.  Close allies of Mr. Obama include Louis Farrakhan, Percy Sutton, Jeremiah Wright, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, Khalid al-Mansour, Rashid Ismail Khalidi and many others.  What do they have in common?  Outright devotion to, or affection for, Islam, real hatred for Israel, and a generally held view America is the problem, even the great Satan.

In his books and elsewhere Obama boldly proclaims:

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”  Audacity of Hope, page 261.

“The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet  of Islam.”  Speech, 9.25.12, United Nations.

The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.

I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

It is hard to see how he could be more forthcoming.  Indeed, these statements are uncharacteristically honest and unequivocal.

Remember Obama claiming Muslims had much to do with the founding of America when no evidence exists to support that claim?  Very revealing.  Remember the Detroit underwear bomber Obama called an “isolated extremist” ? Remember Obama calling the Fort Hood shooting nothing more than “workplace violence”. Remember he ignored the woman beheaded in Oklahoma?

Recently he hosted a meeting of Muslims in the White House, a secret meeting attended by activists and Jihadists consulting with Obama on ways to combat “Islamophobia”, while the rest of the country wonders when Obama and largely unseen Muslim moderates will consult on ways to combat Islamic terrorism.

Don’t forget documented charges Obama’s government is filled with Muslim Brotherhood operatives.

Further evidence: although he claims to be a Christian, he is hostile to all things biblical.  Revealing his complete misunderstanding of the Gospel of Christ, he declared during the first presidential campaign, that he hopes his good works will get him to heaven.  That is Islamic theology.  It is not Christian theology.  In Christ we are saved by grace through faith, not of works.  For a long rundown of Obama’s glaring hostility toward Christianity, a distinctly Muslim attitude, consult this report:  America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President.

So if it talks like a Muslim, walks like a Muslim and behaves like a Muslim while protecting and promoting Muslims, it is probably a Muslim, right?

Not quite.

Obama’s appetite is for an Islamic cake, with Christian sprinkles for political reasons. Yet he is neither Christian nor altogether Muslim.  He has made many statements promoting universal acceptance of all religion, careful to say as well that all people of faith must subjugate their beliefs to the demands of democracy, demands making supreme the creation of a secular collectivist state.  Therefore, Obama is a Muslim in agnostic clothing whose real religion is secular collectivism driven by power concentrated in the central government.

In short, Obama believes he is his own god. He worships his own ideology.  And that is what makes him more dangerous than Jihad, so long as he holds power.   In trying to be all things to all people Obama has become a delusional tyrant whose tenure in office is marked by chaos, destruction and failure.  The worst failure is right around the corner: Iran armed with nuclear weapons.

As Thomas Sowell has rightly stated:  “I think this man [Obama] really does believe he can change the world, and people like that are inherently more dangerous than mere crooked politicians.”
