Skip to comments.You lie! Obama claims that Islam teaches the law of love
Posted on 02/07/2012 1:14:51 PM PST by Starman417
At last Thursday's National Prayer Breakfast Obama claimed that his policies are motivated by "God's command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself'." He then conflated this law of love with the golden rule, and made a blatantly dishonest claim about Islam:
I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of PlatoIn fact, Islam repeatedly and explicitly rejects the law of love, teaching instead a law of hate.
When Jesus was asked "who is my neighbor?" (Luke 10:29), he answered (via the parable of the good Samaritan) that everyone is everyone's neighbor. Islam, in contrast, instructs Muslims to be good only to other Muslims. Koran, verse 48.29:
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among themselves.Verse 3.28 says that Muslims can only pretend to befriend infidels:
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, that ye may Guard yourselves from them.Of course we are very familiar with this in practice, as one revealed terror-plotter after another is described by surprised neighbors and co-workers as the nicest guy.
"That" Golden Rule vs. "The" Golden Rule
I guess Obama can call the law of love "that Golden Rule" if he wants, but there actually is a corollary of the law love (implied by the law of love but not implying it) that is called THE Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Matthew 7:12). There is a hadith in Islam (a reported saying of Muhammad) that is similar in form to the Golden Rule, but opposite in substance. It only calls for goodwill towards other Muslims:
None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself.Bukhari 1.2.13, translated by M. Muhsin Khan.
Preceding hadiths back up Kahns non-universalist translation of the Muslim version of the Golden Rule. Bukhari 1.2.10 reads:
The Prophet said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands In Islam the principle of reciprocity is extended only between Muslims, which makes it a principle, not of reciprocity at all, but of bigotry and prejudice. Islam is the only religion of any significance that does not embrace a universal principle of reciprocity.

All I ever needed to know about Islam I learned on 9/11/2001.
The man is a t*rd.
A Muslim t*rd.
According to one of Spencer’s great books on Islam, Islam is the ONLY religion that does NOT include the golden rule to love your neighbor as yourself.
Obama can pretend to be a Christian, but what comes from his mouth is Quranic, not Biblical. His fruit is world domination, not relational. Obama demonstrates Islam in all that he does. Our destruction is his goal, and his fruit.
If it slithers like a snake, rattles like a snake and bites like a snake, it ain't a duck.
Hatred of the infidel is not hidden in Islam. It is the essence of it. No one can study Islam at all without comprehending this, and Obama surely does comprehend it. His claim that Islam embraces the law of love can only be a strategic lie, what in Islam is called taqiyya, and the fact that he seems to be engaging in taqiyya is pretty good evidence that Barack Hussein Obama actually is Muslim and is using the Oval Office to promote Islamic supremacism.
Obamas claim that he is Christian, not Muslim, is not probative because Islams very first instruction to converts is that they should lie about their religion. Tabari 8.23 (one of the hadiths, or reported sayings of Muhammad):
en Nuaym came to the Prophet. Ive become a Muslim, but my tribe does not know of my Islam; so command me whatever you will. Muhammad said, Make them abandon each other if you can so that they will leave us; for war is deception.
If Obama is Muslim, he would lie about it. Muslims who live amongst Christians are supposed to pretend that they are Christian, if by doing so they can advance the cause of Islamic conquest.
In one set of hadiths, Muhammad asks who will murder a man whose poetry Muhammad finds offensive. He then grants a volunteer (Muhammad bin Maslama) permission to lie to the victim in order to get close enough to do the deed, and the volunteer proceeds to pretend that he has turned against Muhammad (i.e. that he is no longer a Muslim). This is regarded by orthodox Islam as model behavior.
In sum, Obama is certainly lying about Islam, and hence is almost certainly an orthodox Muslim who embraces the Islamic law of hate.
There is few things I might not like about my Bible, but I don't remember anything in it just like this. n/s
