Barack Hussein Obama gave an interview just days ago with the French television channel Canal+. In that interview, Obama echoed the words of his former DHS advisor Mohamed Elibiary when he said that Americans should be better educated about Islam, noting that the US could and should be regarded as a Muslim county. Obama called the US “one of the biggest Muslim nations.”
Though Obama’s claims were completely false, seeing that the US has only 4.5 million professing Muslims (1.5% of the population), it is nonetheless an Alinsky tactic to make power seem bigger than it actually is.
Jerusalem Online reports:
Since there are approximately 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, the number of Muslims in the US is approximately 0.3% of the world Muslim population. By comparison there are between approximately 6 million Jews in the US, who account for approximately a third of the world’s Jewish population. Whereas many Americans regard it as a society based on “Judeo-Christian values”, it is doubtful if there is one sane American who would define it as a Jewish country.

By President Obama’s yardstick, France, Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy and Holland should all be regarded as “Muslim nations”. In France, which has the biggest Muslim population in Europe, its 4.5 – 5 million Muslims account for 7.5% of the population. In most other Western European countries, Muslims account for approximately 3%-5% of the population.
The only EU citizens who regard their societies either as Muslim ones, or as societies that should be Muslim are those Muslim immigrants and the 2nd generation who have not succeeded in integrating into the societies in which they live, and as a result have become alienated from them. Even if half of Europe’s Muslims have this attitude (most likely the true number is far less), we are talking at most about 2%-3% of those countries.
India has 150 million Muslims (13%), making it the country with the world’s biggest Muslim minority, and the world’s third largest Muslim population after Indonesia and Pakistan. No Indian in their right mind, let alone the Prime minister would ever regard India as a Muslim country.
I agree with Imam Obama that America does need to educate herself on Islam (Which I would recommend starting here and here). However, I disagree that it would result in a positive admonition of the Mohamad death cult.
The United States is far from an Islamic country and while I believe such comments by Obama are inciting insurrection by the American people, perhaps it’s time the America people teach this usurper and coward in mom jeans a lesson in what America has always been about. It hasn’t been about Islam. It’s been about opposition to such false teachings.
