Skip to comments.Barack Obama joined Muslim prayers at school, teacher says
Posted on 11/07/2010 6:10:15 PM PST by kingattax
AS a schoolboy in Jakarta, Barack Obama attended Muslim prayer sessions with his classmates against the wishes of his mother.
The US President's former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama - who was known as "Barry" when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta - studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Anne Dunham, a Roman Catholic.
The teacher's recollections will add to speculation about Mr Obama's links to Islam during his much-anticipated visit to Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, as part of his ten-day tour of Asia.

Obama believes in Obama, no one else.
I thought his mom was an atheist?
Really? Like we didn’t already know that.
We may not know ‘who’ he is but we do know ‘what’ he is.
just some crazy right wingers here saying again he’s a Muslim. Move along.
Nothing to see here...
His mother was a commie.
Of course, I do believe that Obama is also planning to enter a mosque on this trip because, apparently, by entering a place of worship which is important to the Islamic religion, he will not in any way appear to be a member of that religion. Why would anyone think that??
“School” = Harvard
He was in a mosque while in Turkey.
Marxism is a religion posing as a political movement. Islam is a political movement psoing as a religion..
I suppose if Obama goes to Indonesia and they throw a party for him the way the Catholics do when the Pope comes to town then....
“Marxism is a religion posing as a political movement. Islam is a political movement psoing as a religion..”
Excellent thank you!
His hippie mother may have been raised Catholic, but she most certainly didn't object to teaching Barry Islam because it conflicted with her own religion. She was probably objecting to him being taught any religion at all.
I also thought Ann Dunham was an athiest. In fact, I have never before read anything about her being a Catholic, or for that matter, being a Christian of any denomination.
I have read, however, that the school Obama attended in Indonesia was a Catholic school. I just assumed it was because it was the best school for an American child to be attending while in Indonesia.
Barry’s mother was not a Catholic. He was sent to the Catholic school because it was where Westerners went, although he was registered as a Muslim and thus did not have to take part in Catholic religious instruction. His stepfather (and his mother, presumably) moved him to a madrassa after a year or so because they felt he wasn’t getting enough Islamic religious instruction.
>I thought his mom was an atheist?
>despite the objections of Anne Dunham, a Roman Catholic.
They forgot to say she was a “staunch” Roman Catholic.
If reporters were methodical, we’d be in it much deeper.
She’s whatever they’re pimping him as.
“Marxism is a religion posing as a political movement. Islam is a political movement psoing as a religion.”
That’s a quote worth remembering.
It's all a pack of lies ... but we can use them if he insists it's all true.
"His mother did not like him learning Islam, although his father was a Muslim. Sometimes she came to the school; she was angry with the religious teacher and said 'Why did you teach him the Koran?'" said Effendi."
Hmmpphhh ... so why'd you marry a muslim?
It's all bu!!$h!t
zero's a commie, muslim, mulatto fag ... period.
I hear he snuck out to go to Koran class too
