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.

Where were Obama’s parents married??

Good question. Apparently obama's father was already married when he "married" Ann Dunham, who, if we count backwards from obama's birthday, appears to have been an underage teenager when she became pregnant.

What would be "contrary" to what? Yassr Arafat's wife Suha is, in fact, a Christian.

She started out as a Christian. She continued as a Christian. She's still a Christian.

There are Moslem/Christian marriages all over the world.

Ain't no thang!

I am really confused...Obama is 46 years old now so who was 43 in 1985? Malik? Or does the article have more than one fact wrong?

Where were Obama's parents married? The most likely answer is no where, since no marriage certificate has ever shown up. Nor, BTW, has "Osama" Obama ever produced a birth certificate.

(Excerpted)

“Obama’s school registration records from Asisi Primary School in Indonesia list his religion as Islam.

“Further, Several of Obama’s classmates including Emirsyah Satar the CEO of Garuda Indonesia Airlines describe a young Obama as a very religious and devout Muslim.

“On 22 January 2007, Emirsyah Satar stated:

“”Saat itu, dia memang beragama Islam namun setelah menikah dengan Michelle, dia pindah agama.”

“The English translation is as follows:

“”At that time, he was quite religious in Islam but after marrying Michelle, he changed his religion.”

“Other classmates of Obama have made similar claims to the Indonesian media, claiming that Obama was very religious and devout Muslim in his youth.

“The issue is and the only question Americans need to ask themselves is this:

“Is Barack Hussein Obama being honest and forthright with the American people?”

What matters is that he is now a closet Marxist liberationist Christian, which to me is just as stupid as being a Muslim.

Still the same problem ~ you are speaking of a child, and at the same time you are speaking of his teachers. Of course the Moslem teachers in Indonesia are going to swear to the total devotion to the faith of any of the children in their classes - else there's a question about why they didn't take vigorous action (beatings, etc.) to bring the child back to the correct viewpoint.

No doubt such questions might be answered by some with the murder of the teacher.

Remember, you cannot trust a Moslem to testify truthfully about anyone's adherence to any religion. The penalty for the slightest infraction is DEATH.

The Obama brothers' father...died in car crash in 1982. He left six sons and a daughter...Malik and Barack met in 1985.

May one assume from this that one or both of them did not attend the father's funeral?

Now Obama's half-brother claims he grew up a Moslem. Obama could try to dodge this one by saying that he only met Malik once and got dressed in Moslem garb in Kenya (as seen in the photo) merely to make his paternal relatives feel comfortable with him, and giving Malik an erroneous impression.

But we kind of knew for quite some time that he did go to an Islamic school in Indonesia as a youngster, which he tried to disguise as a "secular school" during the presidential campaign. How often can he get away with reinventing his history? Apparently some of those in the predominantly Jewish audience at the AIPAC speech last week - those that reportedly gave him a "rousing applause" - will believe anything this Manchurian candidate says.

USAtoday...hmmmm!

The point is that if I can come up with a 2004 USA Today article that essentially refutes this story, the story is toast.

NOT that Hussein is not a Muslim. NOT that he isn't the Manchurian Candidate. NOT that he isn't a Marxist.

The point is that the story won't get legs.

You and I can believe it all we want: but you and I believing it is nothing more than preaching to the choir. The story needs to get legs with folks who AREN'T FReepers. Otherwise it is useless.

“the moslems want to kill obama because he converted to christianity,”

It’s an abomination to them but as they see it his position as a possible President is of more value to them in their spread of Jihad.

INCREDIBLE! SCAREY! A MUST READ AND SOURCE!

Obama raised $1Million for his Cousin’s campaign for President in Kenya and campaigned there in Kenya for his cousin Oridinga who won at the cost of thousands of lives and hundreds of Christian churchs burned to the ground, some with their congregations within at the time.

Hopefully all Freepers will read this “LETTER FROM AFRICA.”

If most of this is True, MAY GOD HELP US AND SAVE US FROM B.O. HUSSEIN.

Another possiblity too....If Hard Core Socialist are Atheist then Obama is a Atheist. He only went to Wright’s Church because it was politically expedient. He was not there for faith enrichment...it was for political connections.

If Obama gets elected he will be our first Atheist President.
