In "Dreams From My Father," Mr. Obama described his teary-eyed reaction to the minister's words. "Inside the thousands of churches across the city, I imagined the stories of ordinary black people merging with the stories of David and Goliath, Moses and Pharaoh, the Christians in the lion's den, Ezekiel's field of dry bones," Mr. Obama wrote. "Those stories — of survival, and freedom, and hope — became our story, my story."

Cut and paste from Kantors article.

So mr Obama imagines himself a Black Jew, and so does his pastor.

But when is comes to the application of the biblical narative something strange happens, The Arabs are cast as downtrodden Jews, while the Jews are cast as the predator Pharaoh who enslaved them for four hundred years, or Goliath the Jew who taunts the Jewish Palestinians. How conceited can one get? Next the story will reveal that it was the Jews who actually stuffed Zyklon B into the chanbers where innocent Nazis moaned. Oh, that's already happening in Ahmadinejad-land.

Finally, as a Muslim Obama can practice deceit and lies, as long as it serves Jihad. Nothing will serve Jihad better than a Muslim American President.

Go Obama!! Show America how devious Islam can be.
