The Islamic Ghost That Haunts Obama

by | Sep 17, 2014 | Israel & Jewish Roots, Standing With Israel

We are all influenced by our backgrounds. With the 2008 election of Barack Obama, who has fundamentally attempted to change America’s orientation in the world, thereby impacting Israel in very negative ways, I began to explore my relationship with the USA as one who was born and raised there.

I fully identify as an Israeli—I married in Israel, my children were all born in Israel, my message is fundamentally a message of Israel’s mission, and my work is totally focused on building Israel’s biblical heartland through the children of Israel. Furthermore, when I travel and speak to groups across the United States, Canada, and elsewhere, I am doing so as an Israeli, even though I may have insights into American realities that most Israeli natives probably don’t possess.

Nonetheless, I still identify as an American as well, a fact of which I am proud and which I have integrated into my worldview as an Israeli. We are a product of where we come from, in addition to our essence, and in addition to the many influences that we absorb along the way.

I am sure that on that sociological point President Obama and I would agree, based as well on his experience living briefly in Hawaii and/or Kenya, and Indonesia and growing up as a (possibly non-practicing) Muslim—or at least being registered as a Muslim attending school in Indonesia before moving to America and later undergoing an interesting religious transformation in a particularly controversial church.

Whether Barack Hussein Obama identifies as a Muslim or as a Christian (which he claims to), the fact is that he had a Muslim father (which according to Islam makes one a Muslim) and then a Muslim stepfather. Obama idolized his father, as we saw in his autobiographical book, Dreams From My Father, and perhaps for that reason, he has seemed to be in perpetual awe of Islam, as we have seen in his public references to “the holy Koran,” as opposed to his almost mocking references to the Torah, the Bible of Israel.

Having said all that, the key problem with the influence of Obama’s background is that he is the POTUS, the leader of a free world that is being assaulted by an Islamic monster that has been seriously threatening Israel, America, and Western civilization for years. Those threats have been noticeably heightened with the rise of the Islamic State (also called ISIS or ISIL) terrorist organization that has been brutalizing minorities in the Middle East and beheading American and British citizens.

Despite his awesome responsibility as president, and despite the demands of the moment, Obama seems unable to transcend his background in the religion of “Jihad,” or holy war against the unbelievers. He continues his ongoing nonsensical mantra that Islam is not dangerous, that Islam is not a basis for terrorism, that Islam is a progressive religion.

According to Obama: “Now let’s make two things clear:  ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents.”

Sadly, that could not be further from the truth. The classic Islamic sources have revealed to us that Muhammad, the founder of Islam, whom all Muslims revere and follow, beheaded between 600 and 900 Jews in one day. Would Obama dare say that those many hundreds of Jewish victims of Muhammad’s wrath weren’t innocent?

Furthermore, Islamic sources reveal that the beatings and rapes of young women and the sexual abuse of children that are now being widely carried out, not just by, but especially by ISIS, are simply an extreme manifestation of the teachings and actions of Muhammad, who tolerated, advocated, and/or carried out sexual abuse and beatings of women.

What’s the bottom line? There is nothing more Islamic than ISIS, which carries out the Jihadist, abusive ideology that is at the core of Islam. What is truly absurd is that an apologist for Islam is the ostensible leader of the free world’s struggle against Islam’s most assertive manifestation. Sadly, Obama’s Islamic biases will continue to get in the way.
