Obama to Rohani: May God be with you
Yedioth Ahronoth ^ | 09.28.13, 13:10

Posted on 09/28/2013 2:13:20 PM PDT by Olog-hai

“Have a nice day”—this is how Iranian President Hassan Rohani concluded his phone conversation with US President Barack Obama, the first direct contact between leaders of the two nations in over three decades.

A message on Rohani’s Twitter page, which has since been deleted, stated that Obama answered in Farsi by saying “khodahafez” to indicate goodbye, whose literal meaning is “may God be with you.”

The tweet was one of several Rohani posted after the historic phone conversation. He noted that Obama had phoned him and told him he was positive that relations between Iran and the US would have great effect on the region. …

I wonder if Rohani knows that Obama is a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood?

Iran also supports the MB (Hamas). Said support increased this past week.

Valerie Jarette does.

The rest of the government sits on its hands and views this disaster with a shrug of “meh.”

At this point it is Every man for himself.

Iran is backing al-Assad, Obama is supporting the Mo Bro/ al-Qaeda rebels

I would not want to be anywhere near the Obamster during a thunderstorm, when he invokes the name of God.

Not relevant to Iran (Shi’ite). They’re still supporting Hamas (Muslim Brotherhood and Sunni).

Wishing God to be with someone is not QUITE the same as “God speed.” God when with someone may do the opposite of “speed” — He may halt someone who is doing evil, to get them to realize that they need to turn back to His goodness (technical word is repent, but we have laden that term with so much religiose baggage that it can be ill understood).

Barack may not have meant this... but again I think of the haunting account of how the chief priest, when advising the Pharisees about Jesus, said something that sounded like what the Pharisees were bent upon, but was quite opposite.

By all means let us pray... please let God BE with this crazy and evil man... so he will stop and cease being crazy and evil. Someone told me not too long ago about Muslims receiving Jesus ... in dreams, which seems to be the Islamic way of getting special revelations. Jesus, not being too proud to stoop to pagan expectations, will use exactly that method to reveal Himself. I do not put any miracle beyond the Lord, and times of great trouble are also often times of great miracles.

Who knows what he promised. Remember his remark caught on tape to the ruskies before the 2012 elections, when he’d be freer to give in to ruskies demands.

I would not get my panties in a wad over this.

“Goodby” is a contraction of “God be with you”.

Does every American saying this mean to invoke the blessings of our Heavenly Father?

Probably not.
O probably had a staffer tell him “This is how you say “Goodby” (literally) in Farsi. It is a good way to get Brownie points with Iran.”

That could mean a lot of things, but in practice it would seem to be along Sarah Palin’s line of let “Allah” (whoever that might be) sort it out. Except he’s fueling the feud. There could be worse things for the world, I suppose. Fueling both sides of the feud will mire them down.

But that’s not what Obama wished him. The phrase “khoda hafez” is understood to be a reference to Allah, to those who use it (Khoda being interchangeable with Allah).

Anyway, the word translated “god speed” in 2 John 1:10-11 is actualy “khairo”, which is devoid of references to any deity.

That is akin to the word for grace, but would imply endorsement. And of course a Christian can never endorse evil (or if he does, he is disobeying).

And anyhow I am speaking of the divine way of being able to “render men’s wisdom foolishness.” I would rather pray too much from God, than too little.

Islam has taken a name which was used for the Judeo-Christian God in Mohammed’s time, and ascribed all manner of evil garbage and theology to it.

This gross blasphemy has of course invited many demons. God Himself is grieved.

Eh? Neither “Allah” nor “Khoda” were applied to the God of Judaism and Christianity. And it’s certainly arguable that given the nature of Mohammed’s Allah, it still isn’t. (And this is aside from “El”, “Eloah” and “Elohim” being applied to non-Judeo-Christian gods anyhow.)

Modern Arabic bibles use “Allah” for “God” — are you claiming this is an innovation, rather than a reflection of historic Arabic?

Or he is somewhat fluent.

After all it’s alledged that he once recited the “ call to prayer” with the proper wording and inflections.

Certainly an innovation. If they meant to write “the God”, then it would be rendered “al-Ilah” in longhand rather than Allah (a different word), which refers to an old moon god specifically.

But Khoder is apparently an ancient Persian word for God.

The Hafiz bit is Arabic, and would be one of the 99 names of Allah.

Persians have a great liking for the word Hafiz - it is the name of one of their great poets - and also one of the Arabic words they seem to like to incorporate into their language.

Not for the Judeo-Christian God. “Khoda” (apparently translates as “Lord”) was applied to Ahura Mazda, the old Persian deity and currently the chief god in Zoroastrianism. Only Zoroastrians and Muslims used this word.

I am nowhere near as worried about a farsi whatever as I am about THIS:
"He noted that Obama had phoned him and told him he was positive that relations between Iran and the US would have great effect on the region."

That sentence sent chills down my spine. WHY this and why now after the iranian scum stiffed him at the UN? Chasing after him wagging his tail like a dog after a bone. This is dangerous stuff and we need to be paying way more attention to it than we are.

This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
