Hussein: what's the big deal? That name is an honorific, after HÌ£usayn ibn â€˜Ali ibn Abi TÌ£alib, grandson of Moe, who was martyred at Karbala in 680. When ranks of Shi'ia cut & flagellate themselves in the streets, they are commemorating his death.
Barack means blessed, similar to the Jewish name: Baruch. The infant son of an American atheist and an African Muslim, allegedly an apostate, was given those names, which indicate Islamic origin. The big deal is this: Senator Obama claims to be Christian, not Muslim. What difference would it make if is Muslim?
Muslims are obligated to raise their children as Muslims and instruct them in the tenets & rituals of Islam. [See Reliance of the Traveler, Book a4.6.] Instructing them is necessary to save them from Hellfire.
Muslims are obligated to obey Allah and his Messenger. [Reliance, Book B7.3] What did Allah order them to do? Most important to us are his orders to:
1. Make war on Pagans until only Allah is worshiped altogether and everywhere.
2. Make war on Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until they are subdued and pay extortion.
3. Terrorize their victims.
4. Prepare every instrument of war to terrify the disbelievers.
5. Make a great slaughter.
Using the Senator's full name is considered to be an implication that he is, in fact a Muslim, and as such, inimical to the interests of this nation.
Is there any indication of his leanings in his public statements? From Wikipedia:
At a meeting with Palestinian students two days later, Obama stated opposition to Hamas in favor of rival party Fatah, noting his desire to "consolidate behind a single government with a single authority that can then negotiate as a reliable partner with Israel." In a comment aimed at Hamas, he said that "the US will always side with Israel if Israel is threatened with destruction.
What is the strategic difference between Hamas & Fatah? Which one does not use violence? Which one does not give high praise to shaheed? Which one does not demand the erasure of Israel? Which one does not incite terrorism? Which one is not Muslim? The leader of Fatah was the bag man at the Munich Massacre; some moderate!
...on March 11, 2007, Obama said that "if we could get some movement among Palestinian leadership, what I'd like to see is a loosening up of some of the restrictions on providing aid directly to the Palestinian people.
On March 11, 2007 Obama said: "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people." On June 4, 2007 Obama stated that "resolution [to the conflict] and a better life for all people" "is something that can be achieved, but it's going to require some soul-searching on the Palestinian side. They have to recognize Israel's right to exist; they have to renounce violence and terrorism as a tool to achieve their political ends; they have to abide by agreements. In that context, I think the Israelis will gladly say, 'Let's move forward negotiations that would allow them to live side by side with the Palestinians in peace and security.'"
Were Senator Barack Hussein Obama not a Muslim, his statements about Iran, Darfur and the Armenian Massacre would bring down upon him universal condemnation from Muslims, as would his superficial appearance of support for Israel.
Because he is in favor of the "road map", we know that his 'support' for Israel is not genuine. Demanding concessions to Islam in exchange for empty promises is not support!!
Because of his urge to pull out of Iraq and abandon it to al-Qaeda, it is obvious that he sides with our enemy in the global war on terror. Iraq would replace Afghanistan as the staging area for new attacks prompted by the Qur'anic commands listed above. Terrorism would only increase as a result of our demonstrated weakness and lack of resolve, as it did when we fled Tehran, Beirut & Mogadishu.
Were Senator Barack Hussein Obama a genuine convert to Christianity, Muslims the world over would be howling for his head. Apostasy carries a death sentence. Again, I quote from Reliance
When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.
Why then does Senator Barack Hussein Obama have Muslim supporters?
From Belief Net:
This year, the bulk of Muslim support is likely to go to Democratic Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, said Mukit Hossain, a political consultant to the Muslim American Society, which has taken a leading role in mobilizing Muslim Americans to vote and be active in political life.
Obama, whose Kenyan relatives include Muslims and who lived in majority-Muslim Indonesia as a child, has courted Muslim voters, saying he would be more understanding of their concerns because of his background.
If he is not now and never was Muslim, why would Senator Barack Hussein Obama "be more understanding of their concerns because of his background"? And what difference would that understanding make? Would he reverse Shrub's paltry & superficial security measures? Would he prosecute the war effectively or would he surrender to Islam?
If he is a Christian, not a Muslim, let him stand and recite the Nicene Creed. Let him declare Jesus Christ crucified, dead & resurrected as his savior. Let him expressly abjure Islam's evil imperatives to conquest, genocide & terror as laid down in :
Let him expressly abjure the explicit declarations of those commands found in Ibn Kathir's Tafsir, as outlined in my blog post: ROPMA.
At the same time, I want to hear Senator John McCain, Senator Hillary Clinton and Governor Mike Huckabee acknowledge the existence of those same immutable Islamic doctrines and denounce them as inimical to human life & liberty.
Islam is neither a religion nor peaceful; it is a war machine. I disrespectfully demand that anyone seeking my vote for high office acknowledge that fact! I can not place trust in anyone who refuses.
