Wake up America!

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama and his feelings about america

Submitted by Joseph Leon Murphy (Ireland), Jan 10, 2008 at 17:08

On the 6th of March 1953 my father Leon Murphy named me after Josef Stalin, he himself was named after Leon Trotsky in 1919, my father lived in America for five years under the threat of deportation in the early Sixties. For all his commo ways he admired the USA and campaigned for JFK.

Laterin his homeland Australia he converted to Islam and tried to convert me from a card-carrying Catholic into a Mecca-facing maniac. He later repudiated Islam and returned to the Catholic Church and also denounced communism after a visit to Moscow in 1974. He returned to his German-Irish roots when he befriended an ex-Wehrmacht soldier who fought at Stalingrad.

My father was fluent in Chinese and Russian and predicted the rise of China as a world power. Today as I watch the rise of Obama bin Laden and his march to the White House, I recall what my father said all those years ago: "Americans are dangerously simplistic". Would Saudi Arabia allow a Christian to be their next king, answer me that you silly Yanks voting for Obama bin Laden?

When Uncle Joe felt threatened by Muslims in WWII he deported them to Siberia, I'm sure Trotsky as a Jew would have supported that (if Stalin hadn't killed him first)!

Goodnight America until my next blog
