Dude! Are you seriously trying to jump on the Hil smear wagon posting that picture of him in African garb with no explanation?

Are you trying (like so many other lunatics) to promote the myth that Obama is a Muslim? Should I start posting pictures of politicians who wear yarmulkes at certain events and call them Jewish?

If Obama is not a Muslim, he most certainly is an Apostate. Muslims believe that all people are born Muslim. It is only through our parents ignorance that we practice some other faith. Muslims can accept Christians and Jews if they are willing to live in submission to Islam and pay a special tax. However, they cannot accept a person that leaves Islam for any reason. The only punishment for apostacy is death. This is how fundamentalist Muslims will view Obama. Not good for our country or our relationship with Muslim countries.

Apostasy in Islam (Arabic: ارتداد, irtidād or ridda) is commonly defined as the rejection of Islam in word or deed by a person who has been a Muslim.

The four major Sunni and one major Shia Madh'hab (schools of Islamic jurisprudence) agree that a sane adult male apostate must be executed.[1] They differ on the punishment for a female apostate - some schools calling for death and others for imprisonment. Whether Sharia laws governing apostasy are derived from the hadith traditions alone or also from the Quran is disputed. According to Wael Hallaq nothing of the apostasy law are derived from the Qur'an,[2] although the jurist al-Shafi'i interpreted the Quranic verse [Qur'an 2:217] as providing the main evidence for apostasy being a capital crime in Islam.[3]

Don't both parents have to be Muslim for that to be true?!?!

Shannonymous said...

PS- again, I must clarify: in this picture he is dressing in the custom of someone he is visiting, not for his own amusement or religious beliefs, just as MANY politicians have worn yarmulkes when visiting heads of state in Israel!!!

No, both parents do not have to be Muslim. All evidence shows that he was raised in Islam and attended an Islamic school. It is not clear if he has been baptized in the Christian Church.

Obama Is Our First Muslim Presidential Contender In The Same Way That Clinton Was Our First Black President

Talk Radio (The Mancow show) called last night and asked me to join them this morning to comment on the Obama-Farrakhan matter. And so I made a dutiful list of “talking points” and tried to overcome my professorial politeness in order to get a few words in edgewise on a wonderfully high-energy program. The interview will be posted in a few hours at Mancow.com and here’s some of what I said.

I believe that Obama is our first Muslim Presidential contender.

No, I am not saying that he secretly is or ever was a Muslim. Obama is a Muslim in the same way that Bill Clinton was allegedly our first Black President. He is , stylistically, a United Nations-style postmodern multi-cultural relativist and that means Obama may refuse to call barbarism by its rightful name if that barbarism is practiced by Muslims .

Also, on at least one very public occasion, there is a photograph of Obama failing (or refusing) to pledge alliegance to the American flag. When challenged on this and other questions of patriotism, Obama explained that the true American patriot is one who criticizes his country’s faults, not one who merely salutes its flag.

Obama might be the first Muslim French intellectual Presidential contender, a more politically correct and darker-skinned John Kerry or Howard Dean, and the Dreamboat of Code Pink and of the many high-profile but predominantly left-feminists who have been signing “feminist” petitions for Obama. For Obama—but not for Hillary, who may be the last women in position to run for the American Presidency for the next fifty years. I admit it: I actually dressed up to vote for Hillary in the New York primary since this was the first time in nearly fifty years that I had such an opportunity.

UGH. I'm over it. Dan?!?!

dan said...

I just posted the picture to see what would happen.

As you can see it raises a lot of emotions among Americans.

The one thing that we can conclude from this pic however and others i.e. Dukakis tank, is that when you're running for office, playing dress up is a really bad idea.

Shannonymous said...

How come you didn't say that to your buddy Ghouliani? He played dress-up A LOT.

dan said...

Yeah and it didn't help him any either.

Shannonymous said...

Did you see SNL last night? He said the same thing.

Shannonymous said...

Personally I think it's a cop out. (See all my past criticisms of him on this blog!)

It is weird to me that everyone is more upset about the silly picture but not one comment about the video clip. I think it’s really scary that people cannot name one accomplishment, but that is not really a big deal, the dumb picture is? Very typical of the liberals to totally ignore the more important issue and attack the silly photo. I like to see the photo because without any explanation the liberals just fly off the handle.

Shannonymous said...

You want a comment on the video? It is not so much what Obama HAS accomplished, it is what we BELIEVE he CAN accomplish. Never underestimate hope and inspiration.
