As if I needed anymore proof that Barack Hussein Obama embraces his Muslim side more than his Christian side, the President gives an interview today on French television in which he claimed, “And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” Now while I believe it is a leap to claim that Obama claimed that America is a Muslim country, he most certainly is claiming that we have a huge Muslim population which is just plainly not true. And that our Muslim population is so large that we should all want to educate ourselves more on Islam and the Islamic world should more readily embrace us. Obama said to the BBC, “Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.”
So the President who tried to hide his middle name and made it politically incorrect to mention “Hussein”, now seems to be embracing his Muslim roots. While speaking to the BBC today he pointed out that he has several family members that are Muslim. But at a Boca Raton, Florida, town hall meeting on May 22, 2008, Obama claimed, “My father was basically agnostic, as far as I can tell, and I didn’t know him.” This was typical during the campaign as Jake Tapper points out when he writes, “With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.”
Jake Tapper also reported today that “during a conference call in preparation for President Obama’s trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said ‘the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to — or before he’s been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world — you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father — obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago.'” Let us not forget that Obama told the Turkish Parliament in April that America is not a Christian nation and he referenced how many “Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them.”
As I wrote yesterday, this man is pandering like crazy to our enemies. Why? Iranians are invited to our embassies for July 4th celebrations and Obama says that it is permissible for Iran to move forward with nuclear power. He might as well carry a white flag with him tomorrow to his speech in Cairo. At least he did not bow to the Saudi King today – I guess there is some hope.
