Skip to comments.Obama to Rohani: May God be with you
Posted on 09/28/2013 2:13:20 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Have a nice daythis 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 Rohanis 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.

So the biggest exporter of terrorism besides our BFFs in Saudi gets a smooch from prezzie Poo.
This won’t end well. We are so ..........
So now the Idiot in chief speaks Farsi too? How VERY Muslim of him!!/s
What sect is MB? shia or sunni? Iran is sunni?
This will not end well at all.
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.
Iran is backing both sides in Syria, interestingly enough.
Thanks for info.
Both men have Satan as their “god”
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?
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.
