The Shah of America.

Barrack Hussein Obama.
.
Obama's inner Muslim is emerging, which may explain why he bows to the Saudi king and tells the Muslim world, Americans "do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation". (said in Turkey) A statement he kinda sorta contradicts when he tells Muslims, "one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world." Source (That isn't true of course, but it may impress Muslims.)
.
Anyone, no matter who you are - ask the President anything - he will always be on your side.
.
Looks as if his inner gay is coming out as well. Our Muslim president also declared June LGBT month. I wonder if he is aware of Muslim teaching on homosexuality? I think he would do well to study that issue a bit closer, especially considering this statement, "I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam... there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."
.
Now get a load of this:
.
"Last Friday, the Baghdad Embassy employee association hosted a Gay Pride Theme Party at an employee pub. A flyer for the event, reposted on the Washington Post's website, encouraged attendees to “dress in drag or as a gay icon.”
.
A State Department source told the Washington Times that the party “throws gasoline on the fire” of Islamic insurgency and strengthens the perception that America is promoting decadence."

I guess Obama is right, "we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam..."

  1. I thought it was ironic that he tries to play Muslims and LGBT's at the same time. Muslims freak on that sorta thing. Meh.

  2. Why don't reporters know anything about the Arabic language?
    .
    Or any other language, for that matter!

    Obama was a Muslim, no matter what he says. It's not quite certain what he is now because he hasn't been able to find a house of worship that meets his demanding standards.

    Jesus had that same problem.

    --------

    Today ABC news posted an article about Obama's Muslim heritage which is a legitimate subject since he is going to be meeting with the King of Saudi Arabia this week.

    The article contained the following sentences:

    The candidate was even offended when referred to by his initials "BHO," because he considered the use of his middle name, "Hussein," an attempt to frighten voters.

    With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.

    Well, any reporter assigned to a Muslim country who didn't learn that an Arabic greeting, "Barakallah feek", meaning "May the blessings of Allah be upon you" probably didn't do a very good job of reporting on the Arabic culture.

    The word "barak", the Arabic tri-literal b r and k, can when modified with prefixes and suffixes can mean many variations on the word blessing: to bless, blessed, blesser, one who is blessed, etc. I am more familiar with Farsi (Persian), the language of Iran, where "mobarak" means blessed, "tabrik" means congratulate, "barakallah" means God Bless etc.

    It's been a long time since I studied it. This post really isn't relevant to the main subject matter of Stella Borealis, but sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta due.

  4. Consider a person who was baptized Catholic as a baby, maybe went to a year or two of Catholic grade school. Then his folks divorced, and he lived with his mom, who was never Catholic. They quit going to church. When he grew up and got married, it was outside of the Church. He occasionally would go to a non-denominational neighborhood church, but wasn't very serious about any religion, and Catholic teaching was pretty much off his radar as far as how he conducted his personal life. Is this person really a Catholic? The connection is pretty tenuous. My roundabout point is that if Obama can be considered a Muslim, it is in the same sort of way. I couldn't in conscience vote for him. But I am willing to wait and see if he can accomplish any sort of rapprochment in the Middle East. I am praying that he can (without giving away the store). The radicals hijacked Islam, if he can encourage the moderates, that would be a good thing.
