Obama made the statement as Muslims around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr. In his remarks, Obama said, “Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate.”
“While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.”
No, it does not. The institute of Islam does not reinforce the obligations of Christianity, Judaism or any other religion. In fact, Islam is expressly against Christianity and Judaism.
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority.”
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.
Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”
Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”
Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”
Quran (17:16) – “And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.”
And what if you are one of those self-proclaimed, non-existent “peaceful” Muslims? Well, the Quran has something for you too:
Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward…”
However, it was not just the lie that Obama told that stands out. He went on to state, “In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”
Say, what? This smacks of the very nonsense that DHS adviser and imam Mohamed Elibiary tried to pass off as America being an Islamic nation, its Constitution being Islamic compliant and that Islam is the antidote to terrorism. Elibiary has claimed that Muslims have had a significant influence on the founding and fabric of the nation as well.
First, let’s correct Obama. America is a republic, not a democracy.
Second, to claim that the fabric of America is made up from “achievements and contributions of Muslims” is not only factually incorrect, it is a blatant lie. Think back if you will. Name great achievements and contributions by Muslims to the fabric of America. Up until Rep. Keith Ellison‘s election, American never had a Muslim representative in Washington. Even more telling is that Ellison sits on the board of a Sodomite and gender confused organization! No my friends, Islam is not really a part of the fabric of America. It is a cancer to the soul of America.
What I wonder is why neither Obama or Elibiary will talk of the real influence of Islam upon the United States? Why are they silent on the Barbary Pirates? Why are they silent on the jizya imposed upon our nation during that same time? Why are they silent on Somali pirates who have taken our people hostage and murdered scores of Americans? I’ll tell you why, it’s called taqiyya (Muslim deception). Taqiyya is used to gain an advantage against unbelievers in order to overthrow them and advance the caliphate (Islamic state).
Finally, Obama tells a blatant lie that should turn the stomach of every Christian and Jew not only in America, but the world.
“That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities,” Obama said.
He ended his statement with “Eid Mubarak,” which is also known as Salat al-Eid and Salat-al-Eidain, which are the special prayer to commemorate the two Islamic festivals of Ramadan, which Obama has forced America’s military to observe. Where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation on this? All I hear is crickets.
Does Obama look like he is standing for patriotic Americans who want the law to be followed and who have given their lives in the defense of America? Does he stand for those that adhere to the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the only Word of God? Does Obama look like he cares one bit for the tens of thousands of Christians being raped, pillaged, forced to pay Islamic taxes and murdered in the name of Allah? Does Obama seem to give a single thought to the thousands of Israelis who are constantly defending themselves from attack, yet he and his administration make them out to be the bad guys and want them to be the only ones making concessions while their enemies concede nothing?
No, my friend, Obama stands apart from all these people. He does not stand with “people of all faiths.” He stand with the Muslims, period. And this should come as no surprise when Obama has only a 39% approval rating overall (still shocked at that number), but among Muslims, he has a 72% approval rating.
