By DAVID RUBIN, ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS—
We are all influenced by our backgrounds. With the 2008 election of Barack Obama, who has fundamentally attempted to change America’s orientation in the world, thereby impacting Israel in very negative ways, I began to explore my relationship with the USA as one who was born and raised there. I fully identify as an Israeli – I married in Israel, my children were all born in Israel, my message is fundamentally a message of Israel’s mission, and my work is totally focused on building Israel’s biblical heartland through the children of Israel. Furthermore, when I travel and speak to groups across the United States, Canada, and elsewhere, I am doing so as an Israeli, even though I may have insights into American realities that most Israeli natives probably don’t possess.
Nonetheless, I still identify as an American as well, a fact of which I am proud and which I have integrated into my worldview as an Israeli. We are a product of where we come from, in addition to our essence, and in addition to the many influences that we absorb along the way. I am sure that on that sociological point President Obama and I would agree, based as well on his experience living briefly in Hawaii and/or Kenya, and Indonesia and growing up as a (possibly non-practicing) Muslim – or at least being registered as a Muslim attending school in Indonesia before moving to America and later undergoing an interesting religious transformation in a particularly controversial church.
Whether Barack Hussein Obama identifies as a Muslim or as a Christian (which he claims to), the fact is that he had a Muslim father (which according to Islam makes one a Muslim) and then a Muslim step-father. Obama idolized his father, as we saw in his autobiographical book, “Dreams From My Father” and perhaps for that reason, he has seemed to be in perpetual awe of Islam, as we have seen in his public references to “the holy Koran”, as opposed to his almost mocking references to the Torah, or the Bible of Israel.
Having said all that, the key problem with the influence of Obama’s background is that he is the POTUS, the leader of a free world that is being assaulted by an Islamic monster that has been seriously threatening Israel, America, and Western Civilization for years. Those threats have been noticeably heightened with the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL or IS) terrorist organization that has been terrorizing minorities in the Middle East and has been beheading American and British citizens.
Despite his awesome responsibility as president, and despite the demands of the moment, Obama seems unable to transcend his background in the religion of “Jihad”, or holy war against the unbelievers. He continues his ongoing nonsensical mantra that Islam is not dangerous, that Islam is not a basis for terrorism, that Islam is a progressive religion.
According to Obama:
“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents.”
Sadly, that could not be farther from the truth. The classic Islamic sources have revealed to us that Muhammad, the founder of Islam, who all Muslim revere and follow, beheaded between 600-900 Jews in one day. Would Obama dare say that those many hundreds of Jewish victims of Muhammad’s wrath weren’t innocent?
Furthermore, Islamic sources reveal that the beatings and rapes of young women and the sexual abuse of children that are now being widely carried out, not just by, but especially by ISIS, are simply an extreme manifestation of the teachings and actions of Muhammad, who tolerated, advocated, and/or carried out sexual abuse and beatings of women.
The bottom line? There is nothing more Islamic than ISIS, which carries out the Jihadist, abusive ideology that is at the core of Islam. What is truly absurd is that an apologist for Islam is the ostensible leader of the free world’s struggle against Islam’s most assertive manifestation. Sadly, Obama’s Islamic biases will continue to get in the way.
My friend, you are spot on!
Thank you for this article of truth. For Muslims, there is a form of lying that is permitted to non-believers….it is called “Taqiyya.” It is permitted if it advances the cause of Islam, such as gaining the trust of the non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them. (This definition came from TheReligionOfPeaceDotCom.) That makes perfect sense, *if* we have a Muslim President who *may* be advancing the cause of Islam through his acts and words and executive decisions. When he placed his hand on the Holy Bible during his inauguration and took a sacred oath by promising to protect, defend, and uphold the constitution of the United States, he *could* have been lying (taqiyya), which is “ok/permitted” if it advances the cause Islam.
In watching this President and seeing the decisions he makes, and hearing his carefully-worded speeches, I believe he is in a peculiar situation. He doesn’t want to “offend” Islam, but yet he wants to “appear” (taqiyya?) that he is an all-American President who has the “best interest” of our country and its people in his heart. As we see 2016 in our sights, I believe we will see this President be even bolder in proving whose cause he is advancing. And we will see (as we already are seeing) our country reap what he has sown. I pray for mercy from the One, True God…the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob–for His protection and power to reign supremely for the sake of His people here in America, and around the world.
Well written article by David Rubin about exposing Obama’s Muslim faith. When Obama orders all statues of Jesus covered before he speaks, he has denied Christ and the Father. The Bible says if you deny Me before men, I will deny you before my Father in heaven. Obama believes if he tells the same lies over and over, people will believe them as truth. Unfortunately, it works. So many in this country are deceived. The Bible tells us to let no man deceive us. Contrary to what Obama says, Islam is not a religion of peace. Read the Quran for yourself. It commands to chop off the heads of infidels (Christians and Jews) – Sura 47:4; It commands to make war on the infidels – Sura 9:123; it commands crucifixion of infidels – Sura 5:33. What’s peaceful about murdering innocents? These murdering savages are already here in this country. Four young men were recently murdered in NJ by a professed jihadist. Of course, the Obama administration refuses to call it terrorism. That doesn’t fit Obama’s talking points. Judgment is coming to America because we have turned away from God. Get right with the Lord before it’s too late. Today is the day of salvation. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus.
