NY Daily News ^ | 6/5/09 | Michael Saul

Tucked away in President Obama's historic speech in Cairo Thursday was a promise to American Muslims to ease the impact of post-9/11 scrutiny of their charities.

"Rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That's why I'm committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat," said Obama, referring to the Muslim obligation to be charitable

Whew. For a moment, I thought he was going to say it was "OK to send money for bombs and guns".

Yes, don’t want to make it to hard for them to ‘fulfill their “religious obligation”.’

So far he’s given the message that terrorists need to cross the southern border, we won’t look at black muslims, here’s a list of nuclear facillities and you can have your funding back.

It’s like 9/10/01.....in Kabul.

Funny how
zakat:za⋅kat
  /zəˈkɑt –noun Islam.
a tax, comprising percentages of personal income of every kind, levied as almsgiving for the relief of the poor: the third of the Pillars of Islam.

just rolls off of his tongue but something every American 5th grader knows, 50 US states, trips him up.

Curious how this Christian is head-over-heels for the ones who have in *their* bible to cut off the head of Jews and Christians. It's like Romney embracing Rastafarians.

Since he gave a speech to muslims, will he now give one to the Jewish people, to Lutherans, Baptists, Catholics and all the other religions of the world? Or is he only interested in muslims? I think we know the answer.

Don't forget that it's okay to recruit terrorists within our prisons, and that we won't actively pursue black muslims who have traveled to known terrorist countries for training, or those that murder members of the military on U.S. soil.

What idiots put this man in office? It is as though we elected a Nazi sympathizer in 1944. The government still has a responsibility to protect its citizens. If it won’t do that, it’s not worth much to the public.

The ‘RAT Party is a criminal enterprise and has a history of enabling criminals, both domestic and foreign.

The B.O. Administration’s lifting of law enforcement oversight of Islamic “charities”, is what their lobbyists paid them to do. The Gorelick wall is already back up.

Lone Wolf Lessons (jihadists -also notes FBI told to “back off” black Muslim converts)

At approximately 10:30 a.m. on June 1, as two young U.S. soldiers stood in front of the Army Navy Career Center in west Little Rock, Ark., a black pickup pulled in front of the office and the driver opened fire on the two, killing one and critically wounding the other.

*snip*

According to police, the suspect told the arresting officers that he had a bomb in his vehicle, but after an inspection by the police bomb squad, the only weapons police recovered from the vehicle were an SKS rifle and two pistols.

*snip*

...Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to “back off” of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts.

At this point, it is unclear to us if that guidance was given by the White House or the Department of Justice, or if it was promulgated by the agencies themselves, anticipating the wishes of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder...

Barry had beeter pray to God or whomever that this country does not experience another major terrorist attack while he is in office.

The easing of scrutiny on an already dubious system of Arab-Muslim charities is not only undercutting domestic and international anti and counter-terrorism efforts, it is another attempt by the Barry Administration to further undercut our national security.

Frakin’ MORON ping!

Liberation theology and Islam have some deep seated affinity. Note that Farrakhan and Wright are colleagues. So beyond Obama’s familial ties to Islam, through his church, he has ideological ties.
