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.

Good graphic Phil -
potlatch must have a comic lion .gif to put on top of that one!
There are two threads with the same exact title, it’s confusing.
I thought I had posted earlier on one that both of you posted graphics on just a bit ago. Must have been another thread.
That’s not the thread I knew twenty years ago.
It’s not the one you knew tonight either.
Great Graphic -
In 2006, while he’s being paid to be a U.S. Senator?
Very funny Newheart, very funny!
Even now I would imagine the Secret Service would prefer he didn't visit Detroit or its suburbs.
She said to Obama's stepfather Lolo, that the Americans living in Indonesia "are not my people!"
If Obama is a Christian...his name would reflect that. We have many African Christians going through Navy Boot Camp in Great Lakes.
Christians keep their whole tribal name while Muslims adobt Muslim names.
Here are some Christian names from Kenya....
Obama is related to the Odinga’s
Kenya is a mix of Christians and Muslims.
Obama’s grandfather converted to Islam.
Obama’s father abandon his Islamic faith and became a Atheist.
Obama’s mother is a Atheist too.
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.
And Obama’s White Grandparents were Unitarians.
“...Madelyn and Stanley attended Sunday services at the East Shore Unitarian Church in nearby Bellevue.”
The next step from being Unitarians
is Secular Humanism.
Sorry for all the Wikipedia sources but they do give a good short overview.
Let me just be clear....
This Christian would have no trouble whatsoever voting for a black man or woman...
But the DIRTY LITTLE SECRET in the SocialistMarxistLiberalDim party is...MILLIONS of rank-and-file racist Dim Sheeple....will no way, no how vote for a black person.
many democrat-tv-viewers have confided in me that they will not vote for a black.
but, there are exceptions. my best democrat-tv-viewer friend—
i joke with her that she’d vote for fidel castro if he were on the ballot—
will vote for obama.
