Skip to comments.Malik Obama confirms his half-brother Barak grew up a Muslim

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.
Eh, a half-brother here, a half-brother there, a grandma who isn’t his real grandma, another who is a typical white person, they’ll all go under the bus together.
So will we have Malik Beer?
The only difference between Malik Beer and Billy Beer is you drink Malik Beer hot.
Exactly. Lies for allah.
Well, maybe Iran will issue a Fatwa on him for converting (if he truly did)...I have the feeling his entire church experience nothing more than a front for his Manchurian Candidacy.....
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??
Gee, this is such a shock. Who knew?
Obama’s internet thugs are probably gonna try to shut us down now.
Muslims can lie to infidels.
They’re cheering him on in Islamic countries.
The Hillary drones are busy little bees these days. This while the Clintons are arm-twisting the superdelegates 24x7. It ain’t over, because the fat lady hasn’t sung.
Are there buses in Kneya?
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.
Are there buses in Kenya?
Liar Liar Liar!
Catch your pants on fire!
