Obama: Islam has Been “Distorted”
Our Islam loving President who took it on the chin the other night in the elections, could not wait to get back to work to defend Islam. If we take a quick look back to approximately two weeks before the November 2Nd elections, he stated that opposing Mosques in America could be a federal crime. Just 10 days later his administration announced he will be visiting Indonesia this month. They also spoke of the “tolerance” of the Indonesia. Today we see that Obama has used the old Islam has been hijacked/distorted falsehood.
Obama regrets distortion of Islam to justify violence
U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday regretted that the “great religion” of Islam has been distorted by a few extremists to justify violence towards innocent people and called for isolating these elements.
Mr. Obama also said that people will have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate differences among them.
“I think all of us have to fundamentally reject the notion that violence is the way to mediate our differences,” he added.
Unfortunately O, the Islamic scriptures tell Muslims differently.
Koran verse 009.029
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Lets see what else Obama had to say.
The US president expressed these views when a Muslim student A. Ansari lobbed a question asking for his views on ‘jihad” during his interaction with students of St Xavier’s college here.
“I think all of us recognise that this great religion (Islam) in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence towards innocent people that is never justified,” he said.
Really? Here is a clue Obama, you do not speak for me or the rest of my friends who know through their studies, that Islam has not been distorted. That know Islam is a violent religion.
Koran verse 008.012
YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers:
I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
Koran verse 008.013
This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.
I don’t find anything great about those verses.
“So, one of the challenges the world faces is how to “isolate” those who have these distorted notions of religious war…and reaffirm those who see faces of all sorts whether you are a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian and a Jew or any other religion that we can all treat each other with respect and mutual dignity,” he added.
How about non-Islamic countries end Muslim immigration? That would be a good start.
Mr. Obama said the phrase ‘Jihad’ has different interpretations. Islam is one of the great religions and majority of its one billion practices believe in peace, justice and tolerance, he added.
How does this one grab you President?
(Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad.
Oh I’m sorry, that is the one you do not want the public to know about. My mistake. Of course Obama does not get into details about what “peace”, and justice under Islam stand for…
BTW Mr. President, Mohammad himself was a terrorist.
Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
I would absolutely love for you to explain how he “distorted” his own religion.
