Will Obama observe the fasting month of Ramadan?
AngieGal | 8/17/2010 | AngieGal

Posted on 08/17/2010 8:25:00 AM PDT by AngieGal

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking starting from dawn till dusk. To prepare for the fasting, Muslims wake up before dawn and the fajr prayer to eat a meal (Sahoor). Muslims break their fast at Maghrib (at sunset) prayer time with a meal called Iftar. Muslims may continue to eat and drink after the sun has set until the next morning's fajr prayer call. (from Wikipedia)

I wonder if we will see any photos of Obama drinking or eating during daylight hours this month. I believe that technically he may be exempt from these requirements because he is living in a non-muslim country and seeking to keep his faith a secret to further Islam. But, he may go ahead an observe it anyway. Thoughts anyone?

He is under deep cover. Well, maybe not too deep.

A lot of “healthy” people won’t eat pork. Mrs. Genoa hates it.

Obama can make up for it by causing the destruction of Israel.

Yes, he is exempt because he is under taqiyya (تقیه); that is, the ability to conceal his Muslim faith under duress.

Islamic warriors, operating in stealth mode, are allowed to do whatever they want. All restrictions are waived.

I saw a picture of him schlepping down a huge ice cream cone with Sasha during daylight hours on Sat. morn. Unfortunately, it was copyrighted, so I cannot post it.

He'll probably not fast...since he is furthering islam in a western nation...but I would be very surprised if he had any ice cream cone photo ops during ramadan.

If a person is on a mission/Jihad they don’t have to observe religious doctrine.

“Is ‘Barack n Bones’ Obama thin as a rail because he’s skipping too many meals to run the country?”

Obama’s shocking weight loss.

“Drudge raises the alarm. Justified? Are you worried about him? Or are you more like: Tell me your diet tips, Barack? What are the reasons a President would get too thin? Anorexia?! Is his self-image awry? Is he really just working out, working hard, and skipping meals (the proffered explanation)? Or is something terribly wrong?

Obama is allowed to do what he needs to do to maintain his deception. He is a stealth jihadi. No deception necessary to gain the trust of the infidels is an offense to Allah.

Hussein is indeed a Muslim, but a CONVENIENT Muslim. He’ll do nothing to cause himself any actual discomfort.

Are cigarettes and ice cream included?

How about sex with other men?

Of course not, he’s royalty. Do you think the house of Saud observes Ramadan? That’s for the commoners.
