Islamic Links on Obama Web Site Stir Criticism By Fred Lucas CNSNews.com Staff Writer February 25, 2008
(CNSNews.com) - A page for Muslim supporters of Sen. Barack Obama -- hosted on Obama's presidential campaign Web site -- promotes events sponsored by controversial Islamic groups.
Muslim Americans for Obama '08, found on Obama's main campaign site, allows users to create their own page through a "My Obama" option. The Muslim Americans for Obama page also links to a Web site that features lectures by people who have expressed radical Islamic views in the past.
A portion of the Muslim Americans for Obama page lists proposals to establish a Muslim American advisory group on U.S. foreign policy; provide prayer areas in public places such as malls, airports, universities and government buildings; institute a law to allow Muslim employees to take time from their work day for prayer; and institute a law against harassment of Muslim women in public areas.
The Obama campaign's press office did not respond to numerous phone calls and e-mail messages from Cybercast News Service on this matter.
Throughout the campaign, Obama has professed his Christian faith, although his father is a Muslim.

1. Islam enables people to lie, even about their faith, if it furthers the spread (conquest) of Islam throughout the world.
2. The Clintons are getting very desperate to be playing the ‘religion’ after the race card failed so miserably.
3. Let’s save this for the general elections AFTER the Clinton machine is six feet under.
Is Obama NUTS?
Way to lose an election!
This guy is BAD NEWS.
I don't care who calls me what, this man is dangerous, period.
“One of the more controversial lecturers on the site is the Islamic preacher Yusuf Al Qaradawi, who has advocated suicide bombings.
“Allah Almighty is just; through his infinite wisdom he has given the weak a weapon the strong do not have and that is their ability to turn their bodies into bombs as Palestinians do,””
that says it all about whether Obama is going to take the muslims for Obama page down.
I’ve changed my mind about him. He’s not a Jim Jones but the anti-Christ.
QUESTION: What are issues and recommendations for solutions that are unique to Muslim Americans?
These illegitimates want to just walk right into this country, have it handed to them on a silver platter, and change it to a sharia-ruled dictatorship. Nice. No blood shed.
That’s what will happen if Obama OR Hillary wins.
Dear Jesus, why would we even be entertaining the idea of letting this guy in our White House?????
I think that the Muzzies said that they were going to take over the US a few years ago. I guess Here They Come, in the form of a rock star, knowing that our brain dead voters will fall for it. Another 10 years and the US will be a 3rd world country supporting this total nonsense.
well, the person that wrote this portion of the page doesn’t speak english very well:
“TECHNIQUES OF THE MASS MEDIA
by Muslim Americans for Obama ‘08.
There are a few “techniques” of the media to discourage the voters or supporters of a candidate. Please be aware of these:
1. Emphasis or focus on POLLS that show a candidate behind. (Q. How reliable are the polls, source of survey and what people are polled?)
2. Downplay past/present accomplishments and emphasis on past and present weaknesses.
3. Bury a candidate event or speech on a websites hompage and in Headline News.
4. Critic all mistake or error made by a candidate. Ignoring positive progress a candidate makes.
5. Mock or make fun of the candidate strengths in the “Comic” monologues or news type programs.
6. Have the voter think there is plenty of time since the election is 2008. However, the primaries are in January 2007.”
See the mistakes?
Obama’s a closet Muslim. If he’d really converted to Christianity, he’d have been denounced as an apostate and a fatwa would be out against him. The lack of a denunciation and a fatwa, combined with his ardent support by Muslims, show he’s actually still a Muslim.
Want to know a little about the Muslim American Society: one of the groups listed in the events section on the Obama site?
“The list of events on the Muslim Americans for Obama page includes voter registration drives at conventions sponsored by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), held last April and August in Rosemont, Ill., and the convention co-sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the MUSLIM AMERICAN SOCIETY (MAS). “
from another article posted today:
“But she (Cindy Sheahan) resurfaced in Cairo last week as a member of a delegation from the MUSLIM AMERICAN SOCIETY which is in Egypt to protest against the military trial of 40 members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood”
WOW. He has this on his website!?
Can the idea of ...accepting sharia law as part of America’s great diversity...be far behind?
“All we are saying....is Give Peace A Chance.” Now, I just have to find my hash pipe.
Never mind- my mistake- I read (and posted) too quickly- I see this isn’t from Obamam’s website, but from Muslim Americans for Obama.
Where is the tape of him in church recieting the Lord’s Prayer? If it is out there then show it. I will then believe in him. That would then cause him to be a true apostate and then the mooslimbs would want to kill him instead of following him. Then we can spend the next four years tryin to keep him alive. What a country! God Bless
The exchange continues- Obama responds to the photo:
Plouffe said in a statement: On the very day that Senator Clinton is giving a speech about restoring respect for America in the world, her campaign has engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering weve seen from either party in this election. This is part of a disturbing pattern that led her county chairs to resign in Iowa, her campaign chairman to resign in New Hampshire, and its exactly the kind of divisive politics that turns away Americans of all parties and diminishes respect for America in the world,” said Obama campaign manager David Plouffe.
We are voting for Hillary in the Texas primary. She will be easier to beat than Obama and his chip on the shoulder wife.
You have no idea what this is going to do overseas - I think no Americans realize.

Whoa! Wait a sec! My popcorn isn’t done yet!!! I’m missin’ the show!!! ;o)
even if he does,the fact that it was their in the first place says it all.
And who do we suppose played the "Oh my gosh, Romney's a Mormon" card?
He can do no wrong in the eyes of the eyes of OPRAH supporters. This issue will be irrelevant to them .Oprah must laugh at how dumb some women are,unfortunately this is no laughing matter.Where are their husbands?
Let me give you an anecdote on how some people think.
One time my whist partner gave me a bid which would indicate he had a least 4 tricks and a stopper in every suit. I had a good hand and knew we could make the bid, so as I was the dealer I took the bid away from the opponents and went no-trump .
My partner had the worst hand you could imagine. He was not capable of taking one trick and therefore couldn't stop any suit. We got massacred and since I went no-trump it was a double penalty.
I sked him what the hell were you thinking and his reply was. "I always wondered what would happen if I did what I just did.' Now I know."
An Obama presidency would be different wouldn't it?
It certainly would be a change. - tom
A Channnnnnnnge! I do not understand why those Democraps don’t demand an explanation of this. You Hope for a Change? To What Lordy be?
What exactly are radical Islamic views? Nothing describes the evil of Islam better than the Koran and the words of Mohammed.
Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
I can only agree!!!
Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhoods plot against the United States, started in the early 1970’s. He has been groomed from a young by this terrorist group!
He has been groomed from a young by this terrorist group!<<<
Your statement, caused my mind to think “Just as clinton was groomed to be the President”.
We must face that we have real problems, bigger than we can know.
