Soldier of Allah

Did you happen to see Dennis Prager's excellent article about Obama's mosque visit?

"President Obama spoke a lot of nonsense, some of it dangerous," says Prager.

Here are two samples, with comments:

Obama: "So let's start with this fact: For more than a thousand years, people have been drawn to Islam's message of peace. And the very word itself, Islam, comes from salaam--peace."

Prager continued, "Why did Obama say this? Even Muslim websites acknowledge that "Islam" means "submission" [to Allah], that it comes from the Arabic root "aslama" meaning submission, and that "Islam" is in the command form of that verb."

. . .

Obama: "These are the voices of Muslim scholars, some of whom join us today, who know Islam has a tradition of respect for other faiths."

Another falsehood. Islam has no such tradition. Islam has always demanded that Jews and Christians be treated as humiliated second-class citizens--when not forced to choose between conversion or death.

Reading this account, something a little chilling occurred to me:

Who, really, was this speech for?

Not the people at the mosque, surely. That audience of all audiences had to know Obama was lying. They sat there and let him lie because they were part of the kabuki theater that is the Obama anti-Islamophobia road show.

So, who was he talking to? To us.

He wants AMERICANS to believe that 'Islam' means 'peace'. He wants us to think that Islam is "part of the fabric of this nation" when in fact, as Prager points out, it isn't. He pretends there's an epidemic of discrimination against Muslims--that WE have the problem, not the Islamists--while ignoring the real problem of growing antisemitism.

One Islamic principle Obama didn't mention in his speech is taqqiyah. Taqqiyah is the principle that says that lying in the service of Islam is not only ok, it's encouraged.

There are really only three possibilities: either Obama is an idiot, or he's so delusional he really believes what he says, or he is practicing taqqiyah. I'll leave it to you to decide.
