Barak Obama is 50% Caucasian, 43.75% Arab, and only 6.25% Negro-African. He doesn't have the lawful 12.5% Negro-African to legally claim to be African-American. Barak Obama is ARAB-AMERICAN.

From someone who returned to this Country on Feb 11 this year after vacationing in Egypt and Israel. We were asked everywhere about the Presidential race in America. There was great interest. The Jews came up to us and asked us many questions. They said they do not want the Clintons again. They warned us that Obama is a Muslim, not a Christian. In Egypt, the Arabs said the same thing to us; they said Obama is Muslim and they are amazed that Americans would consider electing a Muslim President of America!!
I am so sick of people being afraid to confront Obama with the truth.

HALAL FOOD ACT
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Deletes everything. Creates the Halal Food Act. Contains only a
short title provision.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Adds reference to:
815 ILCS 505/2KK new
Deletes everything. Creates the Halal Food Act. (”Halal” food is
defined to mean food that is prepared under and maintained in strict
compliance with the laws of the Islamic religion.) Makes it a Class B
misdemeanor for any person to: make a statement that tends to
deceive or otherwise lead a reasonable individual to believe that a
non-halal food product is halal; falsely represent any food sold,
prepared, served, or offered for sale to be halal; remove or destroy
the original identification affixed to food commodities to indicate
they are halal; or engage in certain other conduct. Amends the
Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. Provides
that a dealer who prepares, distributes, sells, or exposes
for sale any food represented to be halal shall disclose the basis
upon which that representation is made by posting the information
required by the Director of Agriculture in a conspicuous
place upon the premises at which the food is sold or exposed
for sale. Provides that a violation is an unlawful practice.

Somebody should get some interviews on record and ask some of his Islamic school administrators and teachers, neighbors, officials, Imams et al whether Hussein was a Muslim at any time while at madrassah.
And how about all of his Muslim relatives in Africa? Why are they being totally ignored? Why is nobody talking to them and getting their words on record?
If this is handled right, there's no way this wouldn't hurt Obama bigtime among voters in November. It's called 'opposition research'.
C'mon, people, think!
Don’t let cold hard truth get in the way of a warm fuzzy story.
McCain will never publicize this Crap....we have to do it independently somehow. . .
We’re talking about a cult that doesn’t recognize minor status regarding religious affiliation. If Muslims worldwide beg to differ with this, then ask them why they worship somebody’s wildly self contradictory teachings as inviolable who married a child at seven and raped her at nine years of age.
He can’t even claim mulatto!? What the hell does he check on his EOE forms?
So who is Imam Sidney Sharif?
Crime and Corrections: An Al-Islamic Perspective (Paperback)
by Sidney Rahim Sharif (Author), Sydney R. Sharif (Author)
No customer reviews yet. Be the first.
Beginning with Master Farad Muhammad, believed to be God in Person, Gardell examines the origins of the Nation. His research on the period of Elijah Muhammad's long leadership draws on previously unreleased FBI files that reveal a clear picture of the bureau's attempts to neutralize the Nation of Islam. In addition, they shed new light on the circumstances surrounding the murder of Malcolm X. With the main part of the book focused on the fortunes of the Nation after Elijah Muhammad's death, Gardell then turns to the figure of Minister Farrakhan. From his emergence as the dominant voice of the radical black Islamic community to his leadership of the Million Man March, Farrakhan has often been portrayed as a demagogue, bigot, racist, and anti-Semite. Gardell balances the media's view of the Nation and Farrakhan with the Nation's own views and with the perspectives of the black community in which the organization actively works. His investigation, based on field research, taped lectures, and interviews, leads to the fullest account yet of the Nation of Islam's ideology and theology, and its complicated relations with mainstream Islam, the black church, the Jewish community, extremist white nationalists, and the urban culture of black American youth, particularly the hip-hop movement and gangs.
This should be on Drudge. March 2.
The African-American Image in Crisis: Al-Islam Or Hell By Sidney Rahim Sharif
He is a member of the Nation of Islam
I’d like to see another Obama Muslim issue explored.
The northeast coast of Africa, home to Obama’s tribal Luo ancestors, was actively involved in slave use and slave trade at least until 1910.
Most northeast African slave traders were Muslim or Muslim converts.
Obama’s grandfather has been described as a “wealthy African landowner” in two sources I’ve read. To me, that means his business almost certainly required a large group of manual laborers to work the land.
I would love to know if Obama’s African family was involved in any way in the use or sale of slaves.
Not sure about that claim.
None of this will make a difference. RUSH is RIGHT. They are followers NOT supporters and they will follow him no matter what you throw at them.
I think it deserves exploration.
Anyone else would be and has been, explored to the hilt.
“C’mon, people, think!”
Found this interesting.
You’re probably right - but at least we’ll know and it’ll be here for posterity.
J, you up?
I have something for you to post about TX early voting.
Get real, McCain CAN’T do it. We have to do it. McCain HAS to stay above the fray, just like with the Swiftboat deal.
Some of those posts are what set me on my search.
Fred Nerks - Thanks, incredible link!
I’ve been doing part time, amateur research on the “Arab-Slaver” issue for three months, and gotten no where.
Amazing to see that others have the same idea.
The wife Esther Sharif?

I would like to be a volunteer at the DNC 2008 convention
That's not the exact wording, but I think I got the gist of it. Anyone else catch this?
better print out what you can, the other link seems to have disappeared:
either that, or it’s been overwhelmed!
Velveeta, Texas, I heard it, it is on page 80 the caller said.
McCain would be wise to stay away from this. The media would do nothing but make a bigot out of him. Barak Hussien Obama, that name alone is enough to make people take a closer look on their own.
the Kenneth Lamb blogspot site appears to be down...
That’s, uh, .. kinda Anti-Christal. hmm
I missed it.
What did Sean have to say about it?
Biracial heritage has caused identity crisis
As I imagined myself following Malcolm X’s call, one line in his book stayed me. He spoke of his wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother at some uncharted border.

There is some hope of eventual reconciliation between races
If Malcolm X’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation, that hope appeared in a distant future, in a far-off land. In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future and populate this new world.
