Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic on February 27, 2007(caught on tape?)

this with a huge grain of salt from the usual corner: No Quarter.

**New Yorker Cover Cartoon NOT a Satire**?

It is being reported today that Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times has in his possession a tape recording of an interview he once had with Barack Obama that may be very damaging to the latter’s campaign for the presidency.

The tape (and the transcript of it) stem from a February 27, 2007 visit Kristof paid to Obama’s senate offices. A column Kristof wrote based upon this interview appeared in the New York Times on March 6, 2007.

What may be damning about the interview, the transcript of it and—especially—the original tape recording is that Obama allegedly provided Kristof with a recitation from memory of the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic. One of Obama’s cousins in Africa has stated in the recent past that Obama was, indeed, once a Muslim. Kristof’s interview records may prove this more definitively.

If this is true, it needs to be posted forthwith on the internet so every person on the planet can see it, once and for all.

Unfortunately, the chances that a leftist shill like Kristof would actually release anything that could embarrass or harm Obambi are vanishingly small.

[Kristof is the same leftist hack who helped to launch ‘Plamegate’ two months before Joe and Valerie made their national debut, and Kristof never did release any details on all he knew or why he was meeting with Joe & Valerie right after the May 3, 2003 workshop of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee. Kristof played the role of Joe & Valerie’s mouthpiece to perfection and deceived the public in the process.]

If you say the Shahada you're a Muslim, that's how you convert to Islam.

If you said the Shahada and then claim you're not a Muslim, you are lying (taqqiya) or an apostate.

Here's the deal.

Maybe Obama is now a Christian. Maybe not. (I'm not so sure what the Rev'd Wright is preaching is actually Christianity. It sounds more like a combination of Black Liberation "theology" and Nation of Islam.)

But even if he is no longer Muslim, the recitation of the call to prayer includes the Muslim affirmation of faith.

From the point of view of a strict Islamicist, once you recite that, even once, you ARE a Muslim.

So even if he's not a Muslim, radical Islamicists can proclaim that he is, or was, one.

Which gives several alternatives: (1) by reciting the sahada, he is lying to the Muslims by convincing him that he really is < wink wink nudge nudge > "one of them"; (2) if he recites it but then retracts it, he's an apostate and the radical Islamicists believe they can kill him on the spot; (3) he is too stupid to realize that he has well and truly put his foot in it with this.

None of these alternatives are particularly appealing.

Given that the Messiah did grow up surrounded by Muslims when he was a child, and that he seems to be of reasonable intelligence, it would be surprising if he did NOT recall the call to prayer. I remember lots of Hebrew from my years in Talmud Torah, but I couldn’t tell you today what most of it means...

Barack Obama: Muslim Call to Prayer "One of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth"



A little something to go with the Clinton-leaked Obama photo to Drudge.

A year ago, Nicholas Kristoff, in the New York Times blogs, wrote, "“In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’”

Grand Old Partisan states that "Obama recited, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent," the opening lines of this prayer:"

"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "


We don't know what it all means--if anything.

It just seems to go with the above photo.

We just thought we'd present it and see if the readers have any thoughts.


UPDATES February 28, 2007

* We just discovered that this story got tagged onto the end of an excellent and lengthy post at Atlas Shrugs, "Obama and Islam: The Third Rail in American Politics". There is a ton of meaty info in this post--information that readers likely won't be able to find in the MSM.

* We'll take this opportunity to mention DBKP's "Can a Good Muslim be a Good American?". File it under "Food for thought".

Or 4) He thinks he can play both sides of the fence and appease both Christians and Muslims.

Kristof also played a major role in targeting Steve Hatfield as the supposed villain in the anthrax killings (because Hatfield had spent some time in South Africa or Rhodesia before they were under majority rule).

(3) he is too stupid to realize that he has well and truly put his foot in it with this.

I think stupid fits. Along with 57 states, the "bomb" on Pearl Harbor and endless other demonstrations of illiteracy. I suspect his "Harvard" education was an affirmative action sham with "social promotion" in exchange for paying the fat annual tuition. As for claiming to be a Christian, I think that is strictly for show. The Islamic madrassa formed his ethical outlook.
