Obama, the Interpreter of the Message of Passover
INN ^ | 4/18/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 04/18/2011 3:59:18 PM PDT by Nachum

Passover recalls the bondage and suffering of Jews in Egypt and the miracle of the Exodus, but U.S. President Barack Obama says its message is reflected in Muslim uprisings.

In his annual message, prior to his third straight participation in the Passover Seder, President Obama stated, “The story of Passover…instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails. This year that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see modern stories of social transformation and liberation unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.”

No he doesn’t.

This is a Passover message.

“Ha lachma anya... This is the bread of affliction, the poor bread, that our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt.

All who are hungry, let them enter and eat. All who are in need, let them come and celebrate the Passover...”

Dear G-d, as we begin this year’s Passover Seder, we pause to reflect on the meaning of these words. While we encounter them each and every year, this year’s recitation takes on a new sense of urgency and import. Our nation is in the midst of an economic struggle, the likes of which few of us have witnessed in previous times. As we celebrate this Festival of Freedom, may we be inspired by the story of our ancestors who overcame the harshest of circumstances. May we be moved to do what we can to help those in need, and may we be empowered to ask when we find ourselves in need. For although we often feel that we are alone, may this Passover observance remind us that we are part of a strong and committed people who have faced and overcome many challenges throughout our long history. Amen.

Written by Rabbi Ilana Baden of Isaac M. Wise Temple

Moses’ people sought freedom from bondage; Muslims seek to impose bondage on all others. Obama is not stupid - he’s just bending history to his whim.

I agree that perhaps the Muslims should use this time to reflect - reflect on what happened to Egypt when it would not let Israel go.

These muslims would rather slice the Jews' heads off than to acknowledge their religious traditions.

And Obambi would rather not acknowledge either them or Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection: he's a muslim.

This man must be truly evil to take a Jewish remembrance and postulate as something from all religions. His bias if not dedication to making Muslems a part of everyones spiritual being is as difficult to believe as his history that says Muslems have always been an integral part of the USA.

His comments are nauseating, delusional and are a support for the enemies of humanity, and the enemies of Israel and all Jews.

Are you kidding me? Obama and/or his administration needs to fire the writer who wrote this claptrap for him and the staffer who signed off on it, lol...unbelievable.

It's so bad it almost makes one think that the people around Obama are intentionally trying to sabotage him. Of course, Obama does have the final say so on what he says to the public, unless he is just a brain-dead automaton only capable of reading the words on a teleprompter, but not really having any comprehension of the words whatsoever.

It's impressive how Barry can so consistently get things entirely wrong.

So true - there are plenty of Muslims who would use the instability and uprisings against Israel. I pray that tonight, those in Israel are comforted by what God did for them.

I wish this Obama Jew-Hater would not try to insert himself into Passover. Even worse are the Jews who are going to the Seder with him. Fake Jews.

“It is a muslim thing.”

And, it was uttered by a Moslim thing.

Um, yes... The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda reach the highest offices of these newly "freed" lands, and if we all listen closely we can hear these new leaders in their palaces with a Passover Message to all of us Jews...

Obviously not. He uses the same hollow template over and over.

Thanks Nachum.
Dalrymple: Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

The more relevant question is whether the 78% of Jewish voters who voted for Obama do.

Obama responded, “Next year in the White House.”

The guy is about as subtle as an unscheduled roof collapse.

Does this man know how stupid he sounds?

No. Psychopaths have no empathy. It comes as a complete shock to him every time he discovers someone who isn't totally devoted to him.

He actually believes that the message of Passover demands resect and support for al-qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and their growing army of foaming at the mouth psychopaths united in the purpose of wiping Israel off the face of the planet.
