Sorry Barack, but there were no Muslims on the Mayflower
Canada Free Press ^ | Thursday, June 4, 2009 | Paul Williams

Posted on 06/05/2009 5:19:28 AM PDT by IrishMike

Speaking at the University of Cairo, President Barack Hussein Obama said that Americans are indebted to Islam for the great contributions Muslims have made to the history and development of the United States.

“I know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story,” Mr. Obama told the throng of unenlightened Muslims. “The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. . . And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.”

Mr. Obama went on to say: “They [Muslims] have fought in our wars. They have served in our government. They have stood for civil rights. They have started businesses. They have taught at our universities. They’ve excelled in our sports arenas. They’ve won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building and lit the Olympic torch. And when the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same holy Koran that one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, kept in his personal library.”

No one at the Egyptian University or the international media took issue with the President’s bizarre interpretation of American history, let alone his confusion of the Nation of Islam (the religion of Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X) that bears scant similarity to orthodox Islam. The Nation of Islam teach that Allah in the flesh was a bona fide nutcase named Wallace Fard and that Eli Muhammad, a conman with a tested IQ of 70 and not the Prophet Muhammad, was the true last prophet of Allah.

Let’s set the record straight once and for all.

Sorry, Barack Hussein, but there were no Muslims among the passengers on the Mayflower or the settlers at Jamestown.

I thought Captain Ahab was in charge of the Mayflower. All the way over he kept bitching about fat white people though.

Now, there's an inconvenient truth.

Must be one of those tolerance thingies Islam is so famous for. /gigantor sarc

Het Hussein, if you love the muSLIMES and islam so much, I have a novel idea. Go to one of their countries and become their ruler / king / mullah.

He just might after he leaves office here. I bet they are too smart to let him lead without producing his birth certificate though.

There were no Catholics, Baptists or Jews on the Mayflower or at Jamestown either. Should we kick them out of the country now? America is for Episcopalians and Congregationalists only?

I read the article and the posts. I found no evidence of anyone advocating kicking Muslims out of the country because they played no role in the founding of it. Why are you attacking a straw man that you have built?

I believe, from the other threads I’ve seen him on, that he’s an anti-Christian bigot,

one of those that would deny that our country was founded on Christian Traditional Values.

“The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco."

What country is he talking about, Kenya?

See The First Salute by Barbara Tuchman. (Chapter I: "Here the Sovereignty of the United States was First Acknowledged")

I believe that Morocco was indeed the first sovereign state to recognize American independence.

Better than those traitors in the Confederacy, who could only get the Vatican to recognize their sorry cause (ducks).

The Netherlands were the first to recognize the United States of America near Sint Eustatius (then under Dutch control) on November 16th 1776 when salute shots were answered by Johannes de Graaff, gouvernour of Sint Eustatius. The Andrew Doria was one of the first ships to cary the American flag and was sent to pick up war supplies for the war against britain and to deliver a copy of the declaration of independence to the gouvenour.

I know the story, but I had always heard that the Dutch Republic did not formally recognize American independence until 1780, which was three years after Morocco.

Reprehensible and a great topic for the GOP leadership. Oh, I forgot, they’re still looking for their gonads and spine.

Obviously, that’s because the Pilgrims were racists.

He’s been hanging around Biden too much. It’s starting to show. Next we’ll hear how football and hockey were brought to this country by the Mohammedans.

Sorry, but the last great contribution to civilization that the Mohammedans gave the world was the zero concept. Now we have a grade to give 0bambi.

Can someone tell me if this is even remotely true?! Funny I have NEVER heard that—perhaps he is talking about KENYA?! ;)

Look up the history on coffee sometime. It was discovered in Kenya by a goat herder in the 7th century who noticed the goats eating the berries and getting peppy. So the locals tried it, liked it and began trading with their Arab neighbors. The Arabs liked it and decided the Kenyans who wouldn’t convert to Islam would make good slaves for the rest to pick the berries. And the rest, as they say, is history.

The Saudis were the biggest slave traders of all time.

So why doesn't Saudi Arabia have a substantial Black population?

Because the muslim Saudis preferred their slaves castrated...
