I have never entertained the idea that Obama is a Muslim and I always believed he was a socialist. But Obama’s behavior over the last 4 years regarding Islam have convinced me that Obama definitely has a Socialist-Islamic centered world view. This combination is not uncommon in many parts of the Muslim world.
Having been a journalist in Egypt for 6 years in the seventies, I have witnessed socialism with an Islamic twist to be a popular political ideology, especially amongst Arab journalists and intellectuals. Socialism and communism have managed to survive in the ruthless Islamic political system and have blended together in the Baath Party in Syria, in Iraq and in socialist regimes in Egypt and Yemen.
One major difference between the two ideologies is that Islam uses Allah, while socialism uses atheism, to fight the God of Christianity. Free democracies, such as the United States, are alien to Islam and socialism because they regard government as a servant to the people and that human rights are from God and not from government or Sharia.
Both Sharia and Socialism unite in their envy of Western society and in their desire to change it. That is why Obama has become the savior of both Islam and socialism. He embodies both ideologies, socialism and Islam, and he was groomed for years to help the socialist and Islamic causes inside America. The claim that Obama is a Christian appears to be increasingly dubious. If it is an untruth, it makes sense, because such a deception works well for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of socialists and Islamists.
Obama has clearly become the savior of both Islam and socialism. To achieve this, Obama has had to deny who he really is. That is why his actions and words never add up. At the recent Catholic Charity dinner speech, Obama did not seem to be just kidding when he said that Romney uses his middle name “Mitt” and that: “I wish I could use my middle name.” Obama was referring to his Islamic middle name “Hussein.” In Obama’s mind, he was not ashamed for having deceived America, but he blamed America for putting him in this quagmire of having to deny his true pride in his middle name.
It is clear that Obama has no problem whatsoever in lying for the sake of “the change and the hope” that he has made central to his presidency. It is significant to note that lying about being a Muslim in a majority non-Muslim country is allowed under Islam. Now, I am not necessarily saying that Obama is a secret Muslim. But Obama does have Islamic roots and that he possesses sympathies to Islamic culture and religion, which he himself boasts about. And the fact remains that, as we know very well, in Islam, lying for the purpose of jihad in Islam is also not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of. One is even encouraged to blame the enemies of Islam for one’s lies.
Sharia law states: “Lying is obligatory if the purpose is obligatory.” Muslim clerics have no problem lying not just to the non-Muslim world but even to the Muslim masses since Islam also allows Muslims to lie in order to bring Muslims together in harmony and friendship.
That brings us to the current debacle in Libya, which can only be understood if we understand Obama’s world views on the “The Muslim World.” Like the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims, Obama insists Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and blamed previous American foreign policy and Israel, for Islamic anger. Obama narrowed down the problem of Islamism to al Qaeda while embracing other Islamic groups as “moderate,” such as the Muslim Brotherhood. By doing that, Obama dismissed the long history of terror of the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave birth to al Qaeda and hundreds of other terror groups. Nothing in Obama’s world is the fault of Islam, and that is why he ordered the Fort Hood massacre to be classified as work place violence and not Islamic terrorism.
Obama believes that he uniquely understands the Muslim world and that he will bring a new era of peace with Islam, at least during his administration. But as president of the United States, Obama was in a quagmire between protecting American lives and being loyal to Islam and appeasing his Islamic friends. Placing American marines in US consulates in dangerous terror- infested Islamic countries was going to jeopardize a bloody confrontation between American security and Islamists. It was also going to discredit Obama’s theory of Islam having nothing to do with terrorism. Also, if Obama confronts militarily Muslim jihadists in Islamic countries his whole theory that he has brought a new page in American-Islamic relations would fall apart and he won’t be any different from his predecessors, Bush or Reagan.
That explains why the demands for American security instead of Libyan security by US ambassador Stevens, went unanswered. Obama did not want to deal with the possibility that American marines would shoot at Muslim attackers in order to save American lives. Thus, Obama gambled with the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others and left them as sacrificial lambs rather than violate Muslim attackers.
With the terrorist attack in Binghazi, Islamists and jihadists made it clear to us that they could care less about Obama, his appeasement, his apology and even his connections and sympathies for Islam. They could not put on hold their jihad or restrain themselves for an American president who wanted to help build a better image of Islam to the world. They could not play the game with Obama and refrain from jihad even during the Obama presidency. Jihadists have declared that Obama is just another American president who should not be trusted. No leader in the West can get away from the wrath of Islamic jihad, and that is why Islamic angry mobs perpetually torch Obama’s effigy in anger.
It is unfortunate that it took a tragedy in Libya and the lives of decent Americans to prove that Obama is unfit to be president of the USA. Obama has fooled many Americans for 4 years. it remains questionable for how many more he can do the same.
