Our current poll swings quite a bit. In spite of the overwhelming evidence there are still people out there who vehemently deny that big ZERO is in fact a Muslim, (with the value added bonus of being a Marxist as well/ed) Â Â So I think we should run this again just to drive the message home:
“As I’ve stated before, the evidence seems to quite clearly show that both Ann Dunham and her husband Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo were in fact devout Muslims themselves and they raised their son as such.”
In 2007, Obama’s classmate Rony AmirisÂ describesÂ young Barry as enjoying playing football and marbles and being a very devout Muslim.Â Amir said, “Barry was previously quite religious in Islam.”
“We previously often asked him to the prayer room close to the house.Â If he was wearing a sarong he looked funny,” said Rony.
Amiris now the manager of the Bank Mandiri, Jakarta,Â recently said,Â “Barry was previously quite religious in Islam.Â His birth father, Barack Hussein Obama was a Muslim economist from Kenya.Â Before marrying Ann Dunham, Hussein Obama was married to a woman from Kenya who had seven children.Â All the relatives of Barry’s father were very devout Muslims”
In 2007, Emirsyah Satar, CEO of Garuda Indonesia, wasÂ quoted as saying, “He (Obama) was often in the prayer room wearing a ‘sarong’, at that time.”
“He was quite religious in Islam but only after marrying Michelle, he changed his religion.”
Here, from his officialÂ website:Â “Obama Has Never Been A Muslim, And Is a Committed Christian.Â ”
Jesus symbol covered up when Obama spoke at Georgetown University, a Catholic school
While this story does not (ostensibly) revolve around dhimmitude, my own Georgetown University experience suggests otherwise. Georgetown is home to the Prince Alwaleed Bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, which receives millions from Saudi Arabia, and has come under fireÂ for this very fact, and Georgetown’s Center of Contemporary Arab Studies is a den of Islamist apologetics. Also, I recall the following anecdote: While attending a class (Politics in the Arab World) taught by one professor Samer Shehata — who thinks the U.S. shouldÂ befriend the Muslim BrotherhoodÂ , incidentally — we were discussing how the Muslim world needs to begin separating church (or mosque) and state, Shehata, quite sarcastically pointing to a crucifix on the wall (apparently forgetful of the fact that GeorgetownÂ isÂ a private, Jesuit school) made a remark like, “Yeah, but what about that?” One wonders what role all of these factors may have played in covering up the name of Jesus.
“Religious Symbols Covered Up When President Obama Spoke at a Catholic University,” by Bret Baier forÂ Fox News, April 16:
The University of Notre Dame is not the only Catholic institution raising eyebrows when it comes to President Obama. Officials at Georgetown University covered a monogram symbolizing the name of Jesus because it was inscribed on the stage where the president spoke Tuesday. The White House asked for all symbols to be covered at the lecture hall.Â
Georgetown University spokeswoman Julie Green Bataille tells Cybercast News “the White House wanted a simple backdrop… consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches.”
The monogram “IHS” â€” which comes from the Greek for Jesus â€” was covered with a triangle of black-painted plywood. Catholic League president Bill Donohue says: “The cowardice of Georgetown to stand fast on principle tells us more than we need to know… but the bigger story is the audacity of the Obama administration to ask a religious school to neuter itself before the president speaks there.”…
