Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood (Let the Vetting begin)
Daniel Pipes ^ | April 29 - 2008 | Daniel Pipes

Posted on 05/20/2012 9:10:53 AM PDT by yoe

As Barack Obama's candidacy comes under increasing scrutiny, his account of his religious upbringing deserves careful attention for what it tells us about the candidate's integrity.

Obama asserted in http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2007/12/22/4436605-obama-asked-about-connection-to-islam”>(December,) "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya]. But I've never practiced Islam." In February, he claimed: "I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child [Indonesia, 1967-71] I have very little connection to the Islamic religion."

"Always" and "never" leave little room for equivocation. But many biographical facts, culled mainly from the American press, suggest that, when growing up, the Democratic candidate for president both saw himself and was seen as a Muslim.

Obama's Kenyan birth father: In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. (1936–1982) was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named "Hussein".

Obama's Indonesian family: His stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. In fact, as Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng explained to( Jodi Kantor) of the New York Times: "My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim." An Indonesian publication, the Banjarmasin Post reports a former classmate, Rony Amir, recalling that "All the relatives of Barry's father were very devout Muslims."

Obama's Indonesian family: His stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. In fact, as Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng explained to Jodi Kantor of the New York Times: "My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim." An Indonesian publication, the Banjarmasin Post reports a former classmate, Rony Amir, recalling that "All the relatives of Barry's father were very devout Muslims."

The Catholic school: (Nedra Pickler) of the Associated Press reports that "documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim" while at a Catholic school during first through third grades. Kim Barker of the Chicago Tribune confirms that Obama was "listed as a Muslim on the registration form for the Catholic school." A blogger who goes by ("An American Expat in Southeast Asia") found that "Barack Hussein Obama was registered under the name 'Barry Soetoro' serial number 203 and entered the Franciscan Asisi Primary School on 1 January 1968 and sat in class 1B. … Barry's religion was listed as Islam."

The public school: Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times learned from Indonesians familiar with Obama when he lived in Jakarta that he "was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended. http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/225233(" Haroon Siddiqui) of the Toronto Star visited Besuki, the Jakarta public school Obama attended, and found that "Three of his teachers have said he was enrolled as a Muslim." Although Siddiqui cautions that "With the school records missing, eaten by bugs, one has to rely on people's shifting memories," he cites only one retired teacher, Tine Hahiyari, retracting her earlier certainty about Obama's being registered as a Muslim.

Koran class: In his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, Obama relates how he got into trouble for making faces during Koranic studies, thereby revealing he was a Muslim, for Indonesian students in his day attended religious classes according to their faith. Indeed, Obama still retains knowledge from that class: Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times, reports that Obama "recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them [to Kristof] with a first-rate accent."

Mosque attendance: Obama's half-sister recalled that the family attended the mosque "for big communal events." Watson learned from childhood friends that "Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque." Barker found that "Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers." One Indonesia friend, Zulfin Adi, states that Obama "was Muslim. He went to the mosque. I remember him wearing a sarong" (a garment associated with Muslims).

Piety: (Obama) himself says that while living in Indonesia, a Muslim country, he "didn't practice [Islam]," implicitly acknowledging a Muslim identity. Indonesians differ in their memories of him. One, Rony Amir, describes Obama as "previously quite religious in Islam."

Obama's having been born and raised a Muslim and having left the faith to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president.

Apr. 29, 2008 update: This article builds on two prior ones on the matter of Barack Obama and Islam. First, ("Was Barack Obama a Muslim?") considered the implications of his Muslim childhood; second,("Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam") responded to a critique of the first article. This third one brings the evidence together in a single place.

Aug. 28, 2008 update: For a listing of my research on this topic, see ("Bibliography – My Writings on Barack Obama's Early Years as a Muslim.")

Is Obama fighting radical Islam in Afghanistan as a war or as a cause? Which is it...our mighty treasure is shedding blood for a Muslim who is their C. in C. and as our elected president he seems to be fighting freedom by destroying Capitalism as best as he can and surrounding himself with Socialist/Marxist,and Communist friends from the past. John McCain let his country down by not exposing what he knew about a Black Man because of his skin.

Help expose the enemy within - NO SECOND TERM FOR OBAMA!!!

Zero was a practicing Muslim at least until he left Indonesia and returned to Hawaii.

In fact, I suspect one of the big reasons SAD packed little Barry back to the States was that he was getting a little too involved in activities down at the local Mosque.

I don't care much about Osama having been raised moslem.In that regard all I care about is that *today* he's an atheist who has a huge soft spot in his heart for the Religion of Pieces.I care even more about his association with Bill Ayers,Bernadine Dorn and "Reverend" Wright.

And,of course,I also care about "born in Kenya,raised in Indonesia and Hawaii".

The only person I've ever heard misstate their very own religion is when Bari Hussein Obama spoke of his muslin religion in a national interview with little Gorgie Porgie.

And of course he meant his Christian religion, as the host reminded him.

Barack Obama’s Muslim Childhood (Let the Vetting begin) —

Never, ever, going to happen with today’s media. Just the opposite will happen. Everything that is exposed either will be played down or ignored by the State-run media. The media are with Obama in 2012 — we will be running against Obama and the media in this election.

The hill we have to climb is huge. King Obama, the communists black Muslim, has millions of followers he spent years buying. This election will be the make or break for our Nation and the chore will be a challenge but can be done. We just have to dump the anti Romney bunch and do all we can to get King Obama out. Newt would have been the real deal, but we lost out to the most ill informed voters this Country has ever seen.

In Barry’s thinking, his mom set him up as a nominal Muslim so now, for convenience, he is a nominal Christian. The truth is Barry never had a dad, or a country. If he had a faith, it was his mother’s Marxism. By now it is an open secret that Barry is a bisexual, contraband drug enthusiast, Marxist slacker.

IIRC, I think I had to put my religious preference on college applications back during the same time period. Wonder if that might be another reason for his sealing his college records up tighter than a drum.

Its that foundation that has shaped America’s destiny already. He has made many decisions to further the cause of Islam. That’s why I maintain the raider is the White House Ghazi.

In the meanwhile, the bulk of America is too blind to see.

This is a side but vital issue:

The whole “where was he born” thing is a diversion
It matters not where HE was born. The “natural born citizen” issue hinges on where were his PARENTS born.

Barry Soetoro’s presumptive “old man” — Lolo Soetoro — WAS NOT BORN HERE!!!!

End of argument!

In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via his books would have knocked him out of the running. (they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)

From Dreams from My Father, I FOUND A SOLICE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER’S RACE”. Barack Hussein Obama

From Dreams from My Father: “That hate hadn’t gone away,” he wrote,.. BLAMING “WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams From My Father’, “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, TO SHOW YOUR LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams From My Father’, ‘I VOWED THAT I WOULD NEVER EMULATE WHITE MEN and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHER’S IMAGE, THE BLACK MAN, SON OF AFRICA, THAT I’D PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUDHT IN MYSELF, THE ATTRIBUTES OF Martin and MALCOLM, DuBois and Mandela.”

From The Audicity of Hope: TO AVOID BEING MISTAKEN FOR A SELLOUT, I CHOSE MY FRIENDS CAREFULLY. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. THE MARXIST PROFESSORS and structural feminists.”

From The Audicity of Hope: (After graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss:) “There was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. “A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.”

From The Audacity of Hope:..’the white race...“that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.”

From “Dreams”: (after making his first visit to Kenya, he wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. that the revelation caused) “ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n-——”.

From The Audacity of Hope: “We are no longer just a Christian nation... We are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of disbelievers”

From ‘Audacity’: “Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones....For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.”

From Audacity: “Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force

Then there is his love of Islam:

From Dreams From My Father: “THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

From ‘Dreams From my Father’, “IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL” “..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..” .

Just a few quotes from his speeches:

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit”
Barack Hussein Obama

“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country”
Barack Hussein Obama

“I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam”
Barack Hussein Obama

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Great reply!!!

Now I have to go party with my Barry Panting friends 5 of which saw him him in the last month @ $35,000 a plate.

I got the perfect gift for one, who I just love. She’s terrific and even though she loves the Tard I found a book at an antique store by Rudyard Kipling and it’s “Barrack Room Ballads”.

Gotta think of a clever way to present it. I wrapped in O paper but, need a funny line or two.

Andrew Breitbart left us knowing more than he had time to disclose to us.

What did he know that we need to re-discover, document and publish?

Why are ALL of Obama’s important early documents forged?

Where was Obama during his “Lost Years?”

Why are there so few known Obama childhood friends?

How many of Obama’s childhood buddies are still alive?

Was Obama a FOREIGN student at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard?

Who wrote the checks for Obama’s education?

Where these question that Andrew Beitbart knew some of the answers to?

____________

To tie the above with some speculative food for thought, please indulge me, (but DO ponder the speculations), as I re-post one of my recently updated comments as follows:

A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.

Currently, at least 40 % of polled American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his arrogant dictatorship.

About 47 % of American voters pay NO Personal Federal Income Taxes. These voters are the “fair share” voter base for Dictator Obama. We, in the 53 %, then are paying this 47 % to vote for Obama by virtue of us paying taxes for ourselves AND them.

In this manner we are supporting the voters who vote for Obama, and they will vote to do so again in November.

Dictator Obama has designed Obama”care” to become active only AFTER he is to be re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).

The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he has already achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.

Obama’s obvious arrogant and deep hatred of America could have only come from what he was taught in his childhood.

Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obama’s past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.

The lack of credible documents that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.

Who the key members of Obama’s probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the Interpol, CIA and the FBI.

Will “Citizen Journalists” such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy the latter two US tax-funded spy entities?

BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.

BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculations: what does your gut tell you?

______________________

The questions we ask
Are simple to say,
One wonders why they
Were not asked,
Back in the Day?

Meanwhile, the drumbeat of Dictator, (in his own mind), Obama grows louder:

Despite all that, his media will still swear that he is not a muslim.

IF he gets a second term, they will learn a hard lesson of what a muslim dicatator does to the usefull idiots.

Interesting that Obama’s serial number in his Muslim school was “203” and his SS# is from Connecticut...203 is an area code for most of CT...used to be all of CT...

Coincidence? Probably, but I just thought it was one of those little Obama-karma moments...(cue Twilight Zone music)
