For exampleand here is the line that confuses me”he sent a message to Mr. Rhodes saying, There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on the earth.’”
That phrase is used in Genesis when on four occasions Yahweh spoke to Abram, then used once to Isaac, and then three times to Jacob. The eternal promise Yahweh made to these men on EIGHT times total that their descendants would be uncountable, as many as the stars in the heavens and the sand on the sea side. The other two factors of the eternal covenant/Promise was that the land, Eretz Israel would be theirs eternally and that Yahweh would be their God forever.
Obama being a muslim might have associated the “stars” with the Ishmaelites, Abraham’s bastard child, later to become the Arabs and the “sand” as being the Israelites.
Just a thought...
