Obama Uses Easter Address to Remind Us That Islam Teaches Us to ôLove Our Neighbors
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com ^ | april 20, 2014 | jim hoft

…For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and Easter are times for reflection and renewal. We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him. We recall all that Jesus endured for us – the scorn of the crowds, the agony of the cross – all so that we might be forgiven our sins and granted everlasting life. And we recommit ourselves to following His example, to love and serve one another, particularly “the least of these” among us, just as He loves every one of us.

The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission…

To be fair, he tried to equate Christianity with all other religions and snuck Islam into the sentence.

This man just can’t help being annoying.

I really wonder if he smirks as he reads those words out loud.

Basically what he’s saying he’s the messiah because the media said he is and there’s no need for another. I think someone else might differ.

The Silver Bullet argument in all this is to ask anyone to just compare the life Mohammed led to the life Jesus Christ led. I’ve shut dozens of people up with this one. Try it yourself. There is simply no comparison.

We just have to try to understand that a car bomb with screws and ball bearings as shrapnel cutting through a crowded marketplace or schoolyard is really an act of love.

Surah 8:12 "Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

Sure sounds a lot like: Matthew 5:43-45 "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

The Silver Bullet argument in all this is to ask anyone to just compare the life Mohammed led to the life Jesus Christ led.

Their teachings as well --

The example of Mohamed on forgivness Sahih Muslim, Book 17: 4206

There came to him (the Holy Prophet) a woman from Ghamid and said: Allah's Messenger, I have committed adultery, so purify me. He (the Holy Prophet) turned her away. On the following day she said: Allah's Messenger, Why do you turn me away? Perhaps, you turn me away as you turned away Ma'iz. By Allah, I have become pregnant. He said: Well, if you insist upon it, then go away until you give birth to (the child). When she was delivered she came with the child (wrapped) in a rag and said: Here is the child whom I have given birth to. He said: Go away and suckle him until you wean him. When she had weaned him, she came to him (the Holy Prophet) with the child who was holding a piece of bread in his hand. She said: Allah's Apostle, here is he as I have weaned him and he eats food. He (the Holy Prophet) entrusted the child to one of the Muslims and then pronounced punishment. And she was put in a ditch up to her chest and he commanded people and they stoned her. Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) heard his (Khalid's) curse that he had huried upon her. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Khalid, be gentle. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, she has made such a repentance that even if a wrongful tax-collector were to repent, he would have been forgiven. Then giving command regarding her, he prayed over her and she was buried.

The example of Jesus on forgivness (John 8:1-11)

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court, they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. "Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?" They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground. But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court. Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?" She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more."

Islam is a religion of peace, and Moslems reserve the right to behead anyone who says otherwise.

“We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him.”

This an improvement from a few years ago when he said Easter was “Something about a cross”. Still, Islam doesn’t recognize life—just death.

“To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.”

B0 Soebarkah keeps repeating this (misunderstood) meme.

But his brother George lives on a few dollars a month. His sister Lia Soetoro died in poverty in Indonesia.
He had USA citizen taxpayers provide support for his illegal Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar.

What a paragon of virtue!

On a completely unrelated note, I've been reading God's War On Terror by former Palestinian terrorist Walid Shoebat. His commentary on how Muslims are directed to lie to Westerners about how warm and fuzzy Islam is is just chilling.

Not sure what made me think of that just now.....

He’s insane! No Muslim subscribes to that philosophy. The Koran does not teach anything even remotely like that.

“One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: ‘We are our brother’s keeper.’ Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George [Obama] does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.”
