President Obama and Islam

It can easily be argued that Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama, was the most under-vetted candidate for U. S. President in the history of this country. The main stream media, decidedly leftist, had an underwhelming curiosity about the man. Their greatest desire was to ensure that a black man of their own leftist ilk would be the first African-American elected as President. Frankly, they did not care about his roots. His color and his leftist ideology were all that mattered. While the left had no scruples against attacking a conservative black man like Clarence Thomas, they also had no scruples about giving a free pass to a revolutionary black man. They utterly ignored his past and heaped scorn upon conservatives who dared to bring it up.

So why did a young man with the name of Barry Soetoro consent to having his name changed to Barack Hussein Obama? One senses some African roots there. But one also senses some Muslim roots. As President of the U.S., Barack Obama has bent over backwards to apologize to Muslims for his country's behavior. He claims to be a Christian, but his years of attending church under the inflammatory, anti-American preaching of Jeremiah Wright can hardly be considered mainstream Christianity. And his treatment of Israel has earned him the reputation of being the U.S. President with the most unfriendly relationship with that nation.

So it is fair to ask the question, has President Obama's past association with Islam helped make him secretly or not so secretly pro-Muslim, anti-Jewish, and anti-American? David Rubin, who admits to having a pro-Israeli bias, has written an interesting article entitled, The Islamic Ghost That Haunts Obama. The reader would be advised to examine what Rubin has to say, and ponder it.
