Obama and Islam

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes

Submitted by Rivniz BIbarg (France), Oct 27, 2008 at 07:33

It is interesting that people focus on Obama's middle name of Hussein but ignore his first name Barack which is also Arabic and Islamic. It means " blessing" and is found in its variatioons in many other Arabic-Islamic names such as Barakat, Mubarak, Mabrook etc.

Also interesting is the fact that Obama named his eldest daughter Malia, after a daughter of the Othman, the third Caliph and the man who organized the compilation of the first edition of the Quran, the Muslim Holy Book.

Obama's claim of conversion to Christianty is bogus because he has never been baptized and has not adopted Christian names for himself or his daughters. His second daughter has an ethnic Russian name: Natasha.

When Obama's daughters were born, he was supposed to be a Christian. But he did not choose Christian names for them.

Obama claims that he has been attending a Christian church in Chigao for the past 20 years. This means that he was a Muslim at least for the first 27 years of his life. Even then, the church he attended was more of an anti-American political organization espousing black liberation than the Christian creed. Reverened Wroght hardly ever spoke of the mysteries of Christ. But he damned America at every sermon.
