DISCLAIMER (added 23 May 2008): I don’t really believe that Barack Hussein Obama is a secret Muslim (12% of those polled do, however)… Although I do think he once shallowly followed Islamic norms and rituals during his childhood in Indonesia. But it’s just so fun to provoke the unholy wrath of Obamessianites! Just look at the comments!
UPDATE AUGUST 2010: Since his inauguration, his actions have caused 14% more Americans to wonder if he is Muslim!
UPDATE 8 Sept 2008: Obama slips up and says “my Muslim faith“!!!
Kudos to Infidel Bloggers Alliance for the linkage.
Obama’s snubbing the American flag during the National Athem and dislike for wearing American flag lapels must have taken their toll, as he ignorantly blurted out that he had visited 57 of the 60 states:
It is wonderful to be back in Oregon,” Obama said. “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.”
The Times’ conscientious Robin Abcarian thought she heard something different there. She checked her tape recorder. It had captured what he had actually said — 57 states now.
(He even paused before he said “57” as if he was thinking about the number.)
He must mean something like this:
If you hadn’t heard of it, you must have been consuming only liberal mainstream media… Old Media Ignores Obama’s ’57 States,’ Obsessed Over Quayle’s ‘Potatoe’.
Fair enough, it’s most likely a thip of the slung slip of the tongue by the tired incumbent… After all, he’s prone to misequations of astounding magnitudes – for example, mistaking 12 victims for 10,000! See the tons of video evidence for yourself.
But wait… Obama may have been right all along. Because there really are 57 states…
Freudian slip much, Mr. Hope & Change? Hey, don’t take me as the authority here – ask Obama’s own track record.
- Rush Limbaugh: Obama to Campaign in 57 Islamic States
We’re participating here in a tweak of the media. Obama said he’s going to campaign in 57 states, and it turns out that there are 57 Islamic states. There are 57 Islamic states. “Every year from 1999 to 2005, the organization of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states,” this is from the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And the title of the piece here is, “How the Islamic states dominate the UN human rights council,” and there are 57 of them. So did Obama just lose his bearings, or was this a more telling slip, ladies and gentlemen? Obama’s 57 states, not just a simple gaffe. He might have been thinking of the 57 Islamic states when he said he was going to campaign in all 57 states.
- Egyptian cleric warns Obama to ‘return to Islam’ – You, Obama, are among those who have pledged before Allah – Allah who created you, sustained you, and brought you to this position – to be a Muslim who believes that Allah is the one God, especially since you have some kind of roots in Islam. Convert to Islam, and you will be saved. If you refuse to return to your [Islamic] origins, to the way Allah created you, withdraw your huge armies and military bases from the lands of the Muslims.
- Obama: Muslim Call To Prayer “One Of The Prettiest Sounds On Earth”, recites it perfectly – From Nicholas Kristof at the New York Times: Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

- Obama’s Half-Brother Confirms Muslim Background – “Barack Obama’s half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background.“
- Obama’s campaign comes out with a site to debunk smears against him, and World Net Daily immediately takes on its limp-wristed deflection of Obama’s Muslim connections
- Obama: America is ‘no longer Christian’ – “Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
- ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’ Quote by Obama
As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant.
In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. (1936–1982) was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named “Hussein”.
His stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was also a Muslim. In fact, as Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng explained to Jodi Kantor of the New York Times: “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.”
An Indonesian publication, the Banjarmasin Post reports a former classmate, Rony Amir, recalling that “All the relatives of Barry’s father were very devout Muslims.”
Nedra Pickler of the Associated Press reports that “documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim” while at a Catholic school during first through third grades. Kim Barker of the Chicago Tribune confirms that Obama was “listed as a Muslim on the registration form for the Catholic school.”
A blogger who goes by “An American Expat in Southeast Asia” found that “Barack Hussein Obama was registered under the name ‘Barry Soetoro’ serial number 203 and entered the Franciscan Asisi Primary School on 1 January 1968 and sat in class 1B. … Barry’s religion was listed as Islam.”
Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times learned from Indonesians familiar with Obama when he lived in Jakarta that he “was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended.” Haroon Siddiqui of the Toronto Star visited the Jakarta public school Obama attended and found that “Three of his teachers have said he was enrolled as a Muslim.”
In his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, Obama relates how he got into trouble for making faces during Koranic studies, thereby revealing he was a Muslim, for Indonesian students in his day attended religious classes according to their faith.
Obama’s half-sister recalled that the family attended the mosque “for big communal events.” Watson learned from childhood friends that “Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque.”
Barker found that “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.” One Indonesia friend, Zulfin Adi, states that Obama “was Muslim. He went to the mosque. I remember him wearing a sarong” (a garment associated with Muslims).
Indonesians differ in their memories of him. One, Rony Amir, describes Obama as “previously quite religious in Islam.”
- Obama’s Feathers Ruffled by Reference to Terrorist Appeasers and If the shoe fits… (See cartoons at bottom of this post)
- Encyclopedia Brittanica on Taqqiya and Wikipedia on Taqqiya:
“[Yusuf Ali 3:28] Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.”
This could also be an alternative explaination why Obama’s pals in the Nation of Islam are so worked up over the t-shirts equating Obama to a monkey.
Because according to their theology, Jews are apes.
And there’s no worse insult to them than to be called an evuuul, Zionist j00… Even indirectly!
Well, with the company Obama keeps and the kind of people who support him, it’s no wonder that you start seeing this kind of message around:
But wait… Barack HUSSEIN Osama Obama mentioned that he had visited only 57 out of 60 states! What could he have in mind as being the last three?
To close, I’d like to state that I have no bias against Obama’s religion or former religion.
To borrow from Daniel Pipes again:
Obama’s having been born and raised a Muslim and having left the faith to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president.
With the addition of one caveat: If Obama really has Muslim roots, then that alone might be enough to influence his attitude towards his ‘brothers in the faith’ who are not necessarily practitioners of multi-cultural tolerance… As Obama has already shown with Hamas and immediate surrender in Iraq.
It would be a fitting conclusion to the glorious imperialist, expansionist, colonialist occupation of the entire West that began 461 years before the First Crusade.
