Malik Obama confirms his half-brother Barak grew up a Muslim
Israel Insider ^ | 13 jun 08 | Staff

Posted on 06/13/2008 3:33:18 PM PDT by white trash redneck

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.

So that dishonest mountebank Obama has been lying all along about not being raised as a Muslim.

As Gomer Pyle would say, "Well, surprise, surprise."

That’s what his sister Maya says, too.

In an interview with the New York Times, published on April 30th, 2007, Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s 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?

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.

A Freeper has done an excellent job of tracking down Obama's Muslim upbringing  in Jakarta, this Freeper blogger has gone so far as to track down his childhood school, walk the neighborhood, do real gumshoe journalism and correspondence on the subject, he has also given English translations and some insight on how the Indonesian media has pursued and angled the stories on Barack Obama's childhood in Indonesia.

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.

Depends on the point of view. Moslems consider you Moslem from birth onward (and that's without respect to any other religion you might later pick up). With a Moslem father, and Islam holding the father to be paramount in these matters, it's incontrovertible that he was a Moslem.

Even his step father was officially a Moslem (although in private, an atheist like his mother).

Obama's brother could not possibly advance a different view for fear of being murdered by other Moslems as an apostate.

Now, from the Antipedobaptist point of view, what Obama "was" is irrelevant provided that he was an adult and was baptised, and made the decision himself without any reservation. "Just as I am" has meaning in some circles eh!

From Obama's point of view he is not now nor was he ever a Moslem. This is necessary to keep crazoid Moslems from murdering him as an apostate the first chance they get.

Folks who who would "like" for Obama to actually be a Moslem are simply seeking some sort of explanation beyond "He's a Chicago pol" to explain what's going on here.

Sorry guys. Being a "Chicago pol" means you are a thieving, lieing, low down sort of character who will raise taxes and never provide any of the additional services those new taxes were promised to support.

Being a "Chiago pol" means you will try to build a new, noisy and dirty airport in the middle of Lake Michigan rather than somewhere in Illinois.

Being a "Chicago pol" means you never need to count the votes as long as you are in charge of the polls and have access to the machines.

Being a "Chicago pol" means a life of ease and comfort.

Sometimes a child of a "Chicago pol" will go wild and abandon the ways of his fathers ~ maybe even become a patriotic and a member of the military - see Patrick Daley!

This is a rare situation. You certainly will never see that happen in Obama's family. Michelle didn't have daughters so they could serve the nation she's always been so intensely ashamed of. Those girls will not be dating soldiers in the backseats of daddy's cars - leastwise not so that he can discover them.

Can I say more about "Chicago pols" and their offspring, and attitudes, and how absolutely horrid these people are.

Do not place your trust or the nation's safety in the hands of Obama or any of his friends.

I guess I have in my mind that his mom was a “converted Muslim”...Anything else would be contrary to the Muslim Religion. Where were Obama’s parents married??

That's exactly the point. None of us, before age 10, had any control over what religion we were raised in. Nobody needs to apologize for that.

But it says something else entirely when you deny the truth.

The article about Malik doesn’t do anything to substantiate this.

Sorry...no story here.

See the following (from 2004):

“It was in the United States, in 1985, that he (Malik) first met his 43-year-old half-brother Barack.”

Good posts.

I believe the religion angle would be overblown except for St. Barack’s [pbuh] evasions and attempts to write his own history the way he wants to. I believe he is not religious, does not “cling” to religion, but uses religion as a tool. I call him St. Barack [pbuh] acknowledging two faiths not that he embraces them, but how he thinks he should be regarded by them.

Im confused.

Barack’s mother and father seperated when he was 2.

Barack’s mother remarried and at age 6, he moved to Indonesia.

At 10, he moved back to Hawaii to live with his white grandparents.

So ... is it the father that raised Barack as a muslim, from birth to 2?

Or the stepfather, from 4 to 10?

Or the white grandparents, from 10 on?
