    Passover recalls the bondage and suffering of Jews in Egypt and the miracle of the Exodus, the unique redemption whose goal was a G-d given way of life to be led in the Holy Land, but U.S. President Barack Obama says its message is reflected in MUSLEN uprisings. In his annual message, prior to his third straight participation in the Passover Seder, President Obama stated, “The story of Passover…instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails. This year that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see...

    In its devotion to Islamic outreach the Obama Administration has become the first to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally “salute” a Muslim group’s efforts to fulfill the “nation’s promise of equal justice and opportunity.” Addressing a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations, Attorney General Eric Holder said he is “grateful” to have it as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights. ... “Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” he pointed out. They have also been “absolutely essential in identifying...

    WASHINGTON (US): U.S. President Barack Obama has extended greetings to Muslims around the world on the occasion of Eid ul Azha, as millions of people performed the annual Hajj and followed the tradition of animal sacrifice set by Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (AS).

    Halfway through his term, the percentage of Americans that believe Barack Obama is Muslim continues to grow, while the number of those who see him as Christian shrinks. Why does this belief persist, in direct contradiction to all known facts? Probably the President himself should accept most of the responsibility. A look at his statements on the subject, could certainly lead to doubt about where his true loyalties lie. During his trip to India, when commenting on the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, he prefaced his rather mild condemnation with expressions of regret that extremists use the “great religion” of Islam...

    Her impeccable dress sense has been praised throughout the world. So it was no surprise that Michelle Obama managed to be stylish and show respect to her Muslim hosts when she visited a mosque on her tour of Indonesia. The First Lady covered her hair with a beige animal-print scarf as she toured Jakarta's Istiqlal Mosque, the largest in southeast Asia. But there was a nod to her sartorial instincts in the form of beads and turquoise fringing at the neck. Though her wide-legged Stephen Burrows trouser suit was simple in cut, Mrs Obama is never one to shy...

    Nothing like a tough, clear answer to a simple question! Here is video of President Obama in India taking a question from a young lady who asked Obama very straightforwardly, “What is your opinion of Jihad?” Obama’s answer? “Well, the phrase Jihad has a lot of meanings within Islam, and is subject to a lot of different interpretations.” He then droned on about how Islam is a peaceful religion and the vast majority of adherents are peaceful people. He did say that violence on the part of any religion against others is not justified. This young lady asked a very...

    AS a schoolboy in Jakarta, Barack Obama attended Muslim prayer sessions with his classmates against the wishes of his mother. The US President's former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama - who was known as "Barry" when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta - studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Anne Dunham, a Roman Catholic. The teacher's recollections will add to speculation about Mr Obama's links to Islam during his much-anticipated visit to Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, as part of his ten-day tour of Asia.

    Washington – No one should “read anything into" the fact that President Barack Obama repeatedly left out the word “Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence, nor should they read anything into the fact that he began using the word after the White House was questioned about the omission, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday. Gibbs did not say whether press reports about the omission prompted Obama to start using the term. The Declaration of Independence says “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed

    As the Unions begin their annual push to get the rank and file to the polls we now have evidence that Union Leaders are now telling their members they need to stand by Obama by voting to keep Congress in the hands of Democrats. After all, even Jesus Christ Himself could not do a better job than Obama has.  At least that's what  AFL-CIO official Herb Johnson has been telling the rank and file in Kansas City Mo. That's right. In an interview with an AP reporter, Mr Johnson actually equated Obama with Jesus Christ by saying Jesus could not...
