Imam Obama knows best:
Obama boldly lied about the meaning and origins of the word “Islam” when he said this:
“THE VERY WORD ISLAM COMES FROM ‘SALAM’ – PEACE,” HE SAID. “THE STANDARD GREETING IS ‘AS-SALAAM-ALAIKUM’ – ‘PEACE BE UPON YOU,’” HE EXPLAINED. “LIKE SO MANY FAITHS, ISLAM IS ROOTED IN A COMMITMENT TO COMPASSION AND MERCY AND JUSTICE AND CHARITY. “WHOEVER WANTS TO ENTER PARADISE, THE PROPHET MOHAMMAD TAUGHT, LET HIM TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY HE WOULD LOVE TO BE TREATED,” HE SAID AS THE AUDIENCE APPLAUDED. “FOR CHRISTIANS LIKE MYSELF, I’M ASSUMING THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR,” HE CONTINUED.
“The very word Islam comes from ‘Salam’ – peace,” he
said lied. And he claims the founding fathers were Muslims, because they read the Koran.
Interesting that none of the contenders for the presidency calls on Obama to stop lying about Islam. Obama should be asked why America had to build a navy to fight the Barbary Pirates, who attacked America the moment it became a republic.
Here’s a reminder:
In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Tripolitan ambassador to Britain. American merchant ships had been captured by the Barbary corsairs and their crews and passengers imprisoned. They could only by freed by the payment of large ransoms. The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty to spare their ships these piratical attacks. Congress was willing to appease the Barbary pirates if only they could gain peace at a reasonable price.
During the meeting, Jefferson and Adams asked the ambassador why Muslims held such hostility toward America, a nation with which they had had no previous contacts. Jefferson later reported to John Jay what the ambassador had told them: the reason for the Muslims’ enmity was that “It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to [P]aradise.”– (Read more)
Muhammad used to send letters to the kings and leaders of the surrounding countries and tribes, inviting them to surrender to his authority and to believe in him as the messenger of Allah. He always ended his letters with the following two words: “Aslim, Taslam!”. Although these two words are derived from the same infinitive Salama which is the root of Salam, i.e. ‘Peace’, neither one of them implies the meaning of ‘peace’. The sentence means ‘surrender and you will be safe’, or in other words, ‘surrender or face death’. So where is the meaning of ‘Peace’ in such a religion that threatens to kill other people if they don’t submit to it?
The Qur’an not only ordered the killing of those who embraced Islam and afterwards decided to renegade, but also commanded the followers to fight all nations until they either believe in it, pay the Jizya or face death:
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the people of the Book (the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” Surat At-Tauba 9:29
And in the same Sura, verse 5, the Qur’an also states: “Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem …”
The word “Islam” means submission, the act of your submitting to the rule of the moon god Allah via his false prophet Mohammed. Obama, having spent 12 years in Islam school in Indonesia, knows this fact all too well. So why did he lie and say Islam means peace”
Because he was practicing Taqiyya, that’s why.
Allahu Akbar, y’all!
