Obama: 'My Muslim faith'

Err... a slip of the tongue? The lack of a teleprompt? Or taqiyya interruptus?

It is curious that the Senator did not immediately correct himself and that the interviewer had to do so. Perhaps he has Democrat sympathies, and was more aware than the Senator of the magnitidue of the gaffe. This video clip will circulate the planet like a viral pandemic. And Cranmer is delighted to do his bit to spread it.

Senator Barack Hussein Osama Obama has two long months during which he must never mistake Lent for Ramadan, or Christmas for Eid.

Your Grace:
I am pleased you posted the link I sent you, and I accept your biretta tip.
The interviewer is George Stephanopolous, who once worked for the Jimmy Carter administration. Of course he's a Deomcrat.

Your Grace,
You are right in pointing out the contradiction in my comment.
I ought to follow the injunction of Matthew 6:3-4, but unfortunately I use both hands on the keyboard.

Obama is not a Muslim in any strong sense, but from his childhood in Indonesia and the mosque his stepfather Soetoro took him to, he can certainly recite the Shahada, which he considers (in a 2007 NYT interview) 'the most beautiful sound in the evening'. If I can find this link, I'll post it (anonymously).

I don't want Obama to win at all, I think he would make a really bad leader of the western world. I think there are many reasons not to vote for him, including his mentor/pastor, links to slum landlords and all the rest. Having said that I think this is a slip of the tongue, and I don't think we should go down the same path as the democrat crazies.

Miss Snuffy,

His Grace always likes to surprise, even with the banal.

You have to admit, it is a bit of a gem. Postmodern politics has become a game of 'gotcha', and Senator Obama has been well and truly got.

Do you not mean Hilary Clinton, who misspoke earlier this year about her (ahem) dangerous trip to Bosnia, where she endured presentation of flowers by two young children ?

Your Grace,
As ever, your analysis is correct. This will, indeed, become viral.

George Stephanopolous, now at ABC News, worked for Bill Clinton (not Jimmy Carter - he's too young for that!) An avid Clinton supporter, he is not exactly the most objective of "journalists."

You're above this petty, sensationalist drivel. Obama clearly meant that he had been depicted as having Muslim faith.

Constitution for the new Islamic Republic of USA is under construction.
We will fight infidel to death.
Meanwhile, American laws will protect us.
Democrats and Leftist will support us.
UNO will legitimize us.
CAIR will incubate us.
ACLU will empower us.
Western Universities will shelter us.
Hollywood will love us.

Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.

We will take advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes we will stab them in the back to death. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will teach our children Islamic value from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyr. We will take over the Europe first and then US. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and US.

Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mixed with intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to Jihad when times come. We are called “sleeper cells”. We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad.

At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine,… Imagine the news in the world /. Death of Muslim babies by infidels.

We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wild fire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women”,

Visualize the news flash all over the world, …Moslem mother is sobbing, ….crying. ….Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundrends of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad.

West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.

You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us?

On the camera:
We will always say, “Islam is the religion of Piece.”
We will say, “Jihad is actually inner Jihad.”
There will be more 911 in Europe and in America.
We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.”

Muslims, CAIR, ISNA and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt, war of civilizations has just begun.

We will use your own values of Kindness against you.

You are destined to loose.

Must be very depressing for you. Isn’t it?

"Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times found that Egyptians "don't really understand Obama's family tree, but what they do know is that if America — despite being attacked by Muslim militants on 9/11 — were to elect as its president some guy with the middle name ‘Hussein,' it would mark a sea change in America-Muslim world relations."

But why anonymouse, why?

Meanwhile Obama has just admitted to what he really is, he says:

"I am a Muss-lim"

Shall we write that again?

"I am a Muss-lim"

Which mean he follows Uncle Mohammed's cult of death and sympathises with Osama bin Laden. 9/11 was a beautiful sight for Obama, the sight of all those infidels being burnt alive is better than sex for him. He salivates with joy at the prospect of turning America's nuclear armoury against itself ad then inviting terrorists for pederasty in the white house.

Bukhari:V4B52N50 "Muhammad said, 'A single endeavor of fighting in Allah's Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it.'" Fighting is not only considered good, it's Islam's best deed.

To Anonymous @ 00:24 -

Oh, I doubt if anyone here is offended. We Protestants have a tradition of seeking for Truth in many forms - and we've been watching this bit of it roosting in our house for a long, long time.

So, anonymous, if you're American, you might do well to watch out instead of name-calling. Especially look about you at the universities, and your girls who have married 'scholars' (oh yes, multicultis and deconstructionists - you're just their ticket) from the world of Islam. One such young woman was telling me with great pride how she and her husband planned to bring his young, disabled nephew to the US to live with them - as soon as they were settled with tenure track jobs. Without thinking, I expressed concern about separating such a child from his mother and immediate family. Took me a while to figure out that this was the source of a quickly following hate campaign against me, personally - their diatribes against the US presumably had nothing to do with the case; but they got away with it when others wouldn't, for some reason.

And has it ever cost me-but I knew all the way through that someone thought I must be worth destroying. Then one day, a year or two later, I saw the mask fall from that girl's face - and what was underneath was not pretty.

Further anonymous, if you're one of them and just trying to undermine this conversation: just know that I cannot be the only such witness to the truth of hu Akbar's post. Plenty of us have seen similar things.

And if you're one of the 'wives' - well, think about it. OK. Maybe, just maybe, it really is love; especially if he's prepared to allow Christianity to you and yours.

As for Obama, he may or may not deserve what's happening to him. I don't judge that. I do think people should be careful to prove what they say is right, in this or any case: for the sakes of conscience, and justice, and Truth. But since Obama gave rise to the issue, surely he must allow the People the right to know the truth about it.

In addition, if he really thought nobody had noticed the similarity between his and Osama's names....then how smart is he?

@:globam -

What do they know of the US, who only know the US?

Why do you think that the stuff this website addresses does not appear in the American media?
Do you think it isn't happening?
Or do you think it doesn't matter that European democracies are disappearing-- oh so very quietly?

It is a FACT that America's chief ally has lost its nationhood-and THE PEOPLE HAD NO CHOICE IN THE MATTER. It is a FACT that France and Holland voted against the euSSR once - and haven't been asked again; SO THEY DIDN'T VOTE FOR IT EITHER.
Or do you think that the fascists and Marxists in Brussels know best? [And yes, they're the ones who are letting the Moslems in].

Just because US blogs, media, and 'theorists' aren't asking such questions and demanding the answers doesn't mean that the American public shouldn't. Indeed, I suggest that one of their first questions should be: "WHY AREN'T THEY TELLING AMERICANS ABOUT IT?"

And if you were to concede that maybe somebody's pulling the strings behind a media puppet show.......then maybe you'd see fit to demand a full inquiry into who's pulling the strings behind that incalculably expensive Obama Show.

The point, then, is not that the question about Obama's Moslem associations has arisen, but that the question directly relates to the survival of Freedom in the West. That issue is greater than any man - and if Obama is on the level, then he will be glad to exonerate himself. If he's not, and does not??????????????????????

Mr Obama's name is Muslim. If he was a Christian he would have a Christian name. He attended a Christian church so he would be seen by the community as being a member. He never understood what his pastor preached.
Only after,it was pointed out to him that the message that the pastor preached was offensive did he object. Being a Christian is more than going to a church and putting money in the collection.

As much as I dislike this candidate, in fairness to the truth, Mr. Obama was speaking sarcastically. If you check on youtube there is a longer segment to the video which makes that apparent.
I dare say, he is neither a Muslim nor a Christian, but believes in some religion of his own whim and fabrication.

V. C., I have checked the longer excerpt and to say he was being sarcastic is very wishful. He had a slip of the tongue.

On why he had such a big slip, I'll let others speculate.
