Skip to comments.Obama and Islam ( Baracka Hussein Abu Amama)

The West always champions its slogan that religion is a special relationship between man and God, and no one has the right to intervene in this matter. Yet today we find that some have inquired into the affairs of President Obama, to determine whether he is a Muslim or a Christian. Despite repeated assurances from the man himself that he follows the Christian faith, 20 percent of Americans insist that he is a Muslim, and that his political ambitions prevented him from converting to Islam.
We are preoccupied with the issue of Obama and Islam, as are the Americans. Ever since Obama announced his presidential campaign, we researched his origins and his class. A leader of an Arab party declared that Barack Obama was both Muslim and the son of a Muslim, and that his real name was Baracka Hussein Abu Amama. It was claimed that his mother, after separating from his father, altered his name, and changed Abu Amama into Obama. After these declarations, the Kenyans and the Sudanese entered the dispute surrounding the U.S. Presidents background, and our brothers the Sudanese proved that the origins of Obama stem from the Luo tribe, which inhabited an area of the Nile in southern Sudan before migrating to Kenya. Subsequently the Indonesians claimed that Obamas origins could be traced to them, like the other countries, as he had lived amongst them for four years, in the care of his Indonesian Muslim stepfather. During this time he became immersed in the local culture, and it is said that whoever lives with a people for forty days becomes one of them. Therefore some may wonder: how can Barack Obama, a man who once described the Islamic call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset, not be a Muslim?
However, first and foremost, people who are preoccupied with the matter of Obamas origins should leave the issue of creation to the Creator. Whether he is Abu Amama or Obama, the man is what he declares himself to be, and he is ultimately Made in The USA. As for those who think that Obama's ethnic or religious origins will take priority over his agenda, Obama came to serve the interests of the American voters, who have transcended differences in race and color to choose the son of a Kenyan as their President. Thus he will be loyal to those voters above all else, and those who think otherwise can only grasp at thin air.
Convert to Islam? He was born muslim with a muslim name to a muslim father. When that marriage fell apart, his mother married another muslim (in Indonesia) where Obama was sent to koranic studies classes.
He says he came to Christ as an adult.
***Obama seems to have many names...***
I read on FR that another east African newspaper printed his name as Barack Abdulla Hussein Obama.
Not necessarily. Obama campaigned as a moderate. He needed the votes of those who cling to religion in flyover country to win.
“Obama came to serve the interests of the American voters, who have transcended differences in race and color to choose the son of a Kenyan as their President. Thus he will be loyal to those voters above all else, and those who think otherwise can only grasp at thin air.”
Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!
To state the obvious, I’m afraid this has gone much further than the mere question of where this man was born. Who is he really?
I think the actions speak for themselves, but the barrage of media gobbledygook and smoke screen intended to divert attention, will not permit the truth to come out... for now
To a Muslim this is true, because he believes it in America's best interest to convert.
To the author:
Obama has no credibility. Why can’t you understand that?
Yeh -- when he joined the Black Liberation Theology Church of Reverend Wright, himself a "former" Muslim.
reminds me of “we came to serve man” from twilight zone.
what the eff???? Another name?????
I don’t buy into a religion or ideology that has to lie to the people to make them believe.
Why are Conservatives proud to say they are Conservative but Liberals have to lie about not being Liberal?
Same with religion. The fact that Obama is not proud of his Muslim heritage and has to hide it says it all. What makes it even worse is the fact that he claims he is Christian, but won’t acknowledge the church he went to for 20 years, where he got married and his children got baptized.
If the media did their job, the community organizer would right now be hanging at the park, smoking weed and shooting hoops instead of taking our country down the toilet.
Obozo didn't need to convert to Islam. He was born to a Muslim father, and went to school in a Madrasa while in Indonesia. The truth is that Obozo has been pretending to be Christian while lying about his true faith, and this has been done for political consideration.
Was that a taunt I wonder? Anyone who knows the Bible knows that you come to Christ "as a litle child".
It seems someone else throughout history has many names and he is always pleased to meet you with a fiddle in hand.
Um, yeah, right. American voters "chose" Obozo because the liberal media lied about his background, and told lies about Bush, and other members of the GOP for nearly 8 years before the 2008 election. As for Obozo being loyal to the voters? Well, I think his actions thus far tell a completely different story. And, the American people are waking up to this fact. Liberals, Independents, and Conservatives are turning against this man in droves. Obozo WILL go down in U.S. History as THE worse occupier of the WH Bar none. The person who wrote this drivel is either an idiot or another deceiver from Islam.
too many names.... too many social security numbers....
too many times caught helping terrorists ....
too many times screwing Americans, American states,

More taqiyya-talkin' BS.
I will stand with them [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction - Taqiyya-Talkin' Collectivist Barack Anti-Individual Insane POS Obama
What freedom-loving, truth-telling, American-principle-honoring, non-collectivist, non-muslim-individual/Christian/Buddhist/Hindu/etc.,etc...OR...MAN...ANY MAN....would EVER say that?
