Death to What’s-His-Name!

Yeah, I’d say it kind of spoils your big moment on TV when you pronounce death on the President of the United States … and can’t remember his name:

More seriously, while this is the usual (and not all that well done) condemnation of the Great Satan for killing a noble mujahideen (and sociopathic mass-murderer), note Sheikh Sa’id’s justification: that Obama is a Muslim who has left the faith and therefore, as an apostate, must die:

“Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate.” —Bukhari 9:83:37

This just goes to show that the “Obama is a Muslim” myth(1) has spread far and wide, even to faraway Sudan, and will probably never die. But I can see where Sa’id is coming from: Obama’s father was a (non-practicing) Muslim and, under Islamic law, if you are born to a Muslim father, you are a Muslim. (Daniel Pipes has a good discussion of this.) Practicing Islam doesn’t make a difference, so, in Sa’id’s view, it’s not unreasonable(2) to accuse Obama of being a murtadd — an apostate. That modern Christianity largely sees membership as a matter of some form of baptism and active profession of faith doesn’t matter; after all, as it says in the Qur’an, Christians are the ones who have “gone astray.”(3)

So… Death to What’s-his-name!

(1) For what it’s worth, I’ve never bought into that; it’s just a variant on the “Manchurian Candidate” meme. If Obama is drawn to any religion, it’s the Black Liberation Theology of James Cone and Jeremiah Wright, which meshes well with Obama’s Socialist politics.

(2) To a totalitarian mind straight out of the Middle Ages, that is.

(3) That passage is generally interpreted to mean the Jews (“…those upon whom Thy wrath is brought down…”) and the Christians (“…those who go astray.”)

    Obama worships himself. That is all…

    Ever wonder how the “Obama is a Muslim” tune got started? Simple; actions speak louder than words. How many of the many prayer breakfasts or Sunday church services has he attended? Hell, he doesn’t even attend the Army-Navy football game, better known as the “President’s Bowl”.

    Notice how Obama made a speech on Muslim “holy days” but did not utter a word on “good Friday”. He sounds like a stinking Muslim to me. He is not fit to be President.He acts like a child.

  4. Kate says:

    Obama’s father was a Muslim and according to Muslim law Obama is a Muslim at birth. He sat for 20 years in Rev. Wright’s “Christian” church and so therefore is an apostate…and as the Quaran states he is worthy of execution. Thus, the chant.

    But the overarching problem here is that no matter what or who Obama believes, it’s his personal relationship with God that we don’t really know and can’t presume upon. His actions, however, speak louder than words and we can all draw a few conclusions from that. God does give discernment. We should ask for that in regards to how to deal with these rabble rousers…they are in the dark and need the light of God to show them the way.
