That’s what I call pretending.

In blessing the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, Barack Obama added that Islam “is a faith known for great diversity and racial equality” and that it “has always been part of America.”

I have more than a passing knowledge of Islam that includes firsthand experience and a significant amount of study over the last 30 years. But somehow I must have missed the advancements of justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.

Honestly, I can think of none.

Did I overlook a reformation in the religion that has resulted in one genocide after another for the last 1,300 years? Racial equality? Has the Quran been rewritten to excise Muhammad’s characterizations of blacks as “ugly,” “raisin heads” and “pug-nosed slaves”?

Didn’t it also say in that book that when Allah created the white man, he touched his right shoulder and he came out destined for paradise, but when he touched the left shoulder of the black man, he came out destined for hell?

Who does Obama think sold all those millions of black Africans into slavery in Europe and America? Is he not aware that black slavery is still alive in some Muslim countries in the Middle East?

Justice? Talk to me about it after you finish reading “The Stoning of Soriah M.”

Progress? Can you name for me one major scientific or social advancement we can historically and accurately attribute to Islam?

Tolerance? I quote:

“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

Today, imams in the Middle East and elsewhere still quote Muhammad’s hadith as their current marching orders:

“The Hour [Day of Resurrection] will not arrive until you fight the Jews, [until a Jew will hide behind a rock or tree] and the rock and the tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!'”

Dignity of all human beings? In Islam, Muslim males have a higher worth than any others. A Muslim man can have up to four wives, beat them and change them as he pleases.

How about Islam always being a part of America?

Perhaps Obama is referring to the Barbary pirates attacking American commercial ships, capturing their crews and holding them for ransom. Or maybe he’s thinking back further to the reason Christopher Columbus journeyed West – to find a safe trade route to the East, one that would mean avoiding the murderous mujahedeen who had blocked the land routes.

I don’t know.

What do you think he’s talking about?

Were any of the founders Muslim?

What are the great Muslim moments in American history?

Maybe all of this sounds harsh.

But somebody’s got to say it.

I’m not going to sit still while this pretender of an American president lies about the historical record and misrepresents evil as good.

It’s time to stop pretending.

    Obama has been so diplomatic that he’s lost all sense of truthfulness. My guess is that he’s too frightened to be truthful… He would rather pander to the Muslim mindset than rock their boat. He’s certainly rocked ours instead though! It would have been better for him to have said nothing than to make those wild claims and his words betray him as nothing more than a ‘man pleaser’ – not the righteous Christian statesman that America desperately needs!

    Dear all
    The more I hear about Obama the more troubled I get in my spirit
    I question Obama’s loyalty to America.

    His real loyalty is to Islam and will ultimately bring ruin against the
    nation.

    God bless America in spite of Obama’s behaviour

    Oh Obama. What an intelligent man, but what an idiot :)
    Intellect is quite often not accompanied by common sense or simple logic.

    Phil, I think the only ruin Obama is bringing, is to himself. With the far right mobilizing more and more in Europe and the US, I can’t see Obama surviving much more than a term, and I mean, literally surviving.

    This is the sad reality that we’re facing internationally, that the PC lobbyists and other leftist, social engineers, are mobilizing “dormant” extremist elements, the very thing they are trying to subdue. Why is this occurring? Because of disillusionment. People are fed up with having to tolerate hostile minorities, minorities which are hell bend on bringing down the very fabric that makes these western nations so prosperous and “enlightened”.

    As a foreigner, I’m particularly concerned about the impact this is going to have on non-Islamic minorities throughout the West, as people will quite often not differentiate on grounds of religion, they’ll just see someone of Middle-Eastern appearance and assume that they’re an ideological enemy. This was certainly the case during the Cronulla riots, where an Italian man, (who could have passed for and Arab person) was attacked by the frenzied crowd.

    I really feel for the African community here in Australia as well, as they could also be singled out in this inevitable conflict.

    Human nature leads us to find scapegoats when situations become tense, or when there’s scarcity of resources. Let us not forget the Holocaust, which was birthed as a result of the German depression of the 1930s. There is no greater uniting factor than the recognition of a common enemy in times of hardship or conflict. We know that there was no justification whatsoever for the Holocaust, it was out and out genocide of the most barbaric kind. The concern I have, is that as the far right becomes more and more active and influential, and moderate viewpoints become polarized, innocent people of ethnic minorities will get caught in the ensuing cross fire.

    Some may think, naahhh, we could NEVER go back to that kind of barbarism, but hey, what evidence is there that humanity wouldn’t turn to barbarism if the situation is ripe. History is full of such examples, and our societies in the west aren’t getting any more “humane” as we delve deeper into modernization and atheism. The atheist is accountable to no one but himself, he is a law unto himself, subject to his most primitive of primal instincts and urges. He has no moral plumb line, and is instinctively violent. That, coupled with the infiltration of Islam in the west, is like combining two unstable elements in a pressure-cooker.

    God help us all.

    Pastor Danny, your warning about the video clip of the Islamic stoning of the young woman was NOT emphatic enough. All I can say is My God My God. I am speechless at this evil.
