Apparently the Obamas of Kenya have been reading those scurrilous emails to which Barak likes to refer, because they have no doubt -- contrary to the claims of the Obama campaign, that the presidential candidate was raised a Moslem. They take that as a given.
As the Jerusalem Post reports, "Barack Obama's half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background. In an interview with Army Radio he expressed a special salutation from the Obamas of Kenya."
The Obama brothers' father, a senior economist for the Kenyan government who studied at Harvard University, died in car crash in 1982. He left six sons and a daughter. All of his children - except Malik -- live in Britain or the United States. Malik and Barack met in 1985.
In a remarkable denial issued last November that still stands on the official campaign website, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs issued a statement explaining that "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."
Apparently Malik Obama, himself a Muslim, had not read the press release.
Melanie Phillips is the most recent commentator to draw attention to the massive body of evidence that leaves no doubt that Barak Hussein Obama was born a Muslim (Islam is patrilineal) and raised a Muslim (so registered in school, acknowledging attending Islamic classes, reported accompanying his step-father to the mosque, and able to recite the Koran in the original Arabic).
Reuven Koret, Aaron Klein and Daniel Pipes have previously pointed to the attempts by Obama and his campaign to conceal the candidate's Muslim background. The well documented evidence draws upon the on-the-ground interviews by researchers in Indonesia and Kenya, published quotations of Obama's childhood friends and his school records, as well as the candidate's own autobiography.
It is not clear whether Barack Obama will now disown his half-brother Malik for acknowledging that shared family background.
As Gomer Pyle would say, "Well, surprise, surprise."
this is gonna get good!
the moslems want to kill obama because he converted to christianity,
and some christians don’t want to vote for him because he was once moslem and is black or whatever.
That’s what his sister Maya says, too.
In an interview with the New York Times, published on April 30th, 2007, Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obamas younger half sister, told the Times, “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.”
I assume Maya thinks of her brother, Obama, as a member of her family?
Although Anna Dunham is often described as an atheist, I assume Maya thinks of her mother as a member of her family, as well.
How else would one interpret that statement?
he he he he
Malik gonna get thrown under da Bus!
Rev. Sharpton was trying to warn them all years ago, “Stay unda da Busses!”
That photo’s got to be from the earlier shows. It was like this with I Love Lucy and the Donna Reed Show. The main characters start out as wacky, clueless rubes and then end up being the nurturing imparters of wisdom.
“It is not clear whether Barack Obama will now disown his half-brother Malik for acknowledging that shared family background.”
OR THROW HIM UNDER THE BUS!
“He is not the ‘half-brother that I knew”
BUS PIC please......
Speaking only for myself, I couldn't care less why jihadists might want to harm him, being President is enough, and I'm not going to allow a terrorist to impact my vote.
It would seem that Christians should be pleased he converted. I hear conversion as a was of defeating jihad advocated all the time.
The real issue is his duplicity. It would appear that like his personal relationships and religious training in Christianity via Rev. Wright, he lies about the nature of his beliefs.
He had a dysfunctional family life. Were he raised a nominal Muslim as a young child, then as a nominal Christian from ten on, finally finding Christianity as a adult, fine. But why not admit it? The fact that he conceals his innermost beliefs is disturbing. And no, that doesn't mean he's a "stealth Muslim", but it probably means he's a racist and Marxist, like the people he acknowledges had the greatest impact on his life. Obviously he's comfortable around radical Muslims, particularly Nation of Islam types.

I suggest everyone reads the entire series of blog postings, (from bottom to top due to blogspot software), and also pass along the "Barack Obama" link to everyone they can.
Showing posts with label Barack Obama.
More similarities to Carter. Jimmy had Billie, and Obama has Malik.
