This is an Op/Ed written by a former Muslim.

Obama's Taqqiya Unravels

Both Sharia and socialism are united in their envy of Western society and need to change it. That is why Obama has become the savior of both Islam and socialism. He embodies both ideologies. The claim that Obama is a Christian was a silly joke, but a necessary lie for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of both creeds.

...
Obama has no problem whatsoever in lying for the sake of "Hope and Change" since lying about being a Muslim in a majority non-Muslim country is allowed under Islam. Lying for the purpose of jihad (known as "taqqiya") is not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of and even serves as a reason to blame the enemies of Islam for one's lies. Sharia law states: "Lying is obligatory if the purpose is obligatory." Muslim clerics have no problem in lying not just to the non-Muslim world but even to the Muslim masses, since Islam also allows Muslims to lie in order to bring Muslims together in harmony and friendship.



Linking the Libya murders to Obama's belief system...

That explains why the demands for American security by U.S. ambassador Stevens went unanswered. Obama did not want to deal with the possibility that American Marines would shoot at Muslim attackers in order to save American lives.

According to Sharia, it is a capital crime for a Muslim individual or leader to shoot at fellow Muslims -- even Islamists -- for the purpose of protecting Americans. That would make Obama a violator of Sharia and an apostate.



Obama is a unique individual in that his ideology is anti American both spiritually and economically. And I do believe this to be true - and his actions support this view.

Oh beleive me, your not the only person i know who feels this way. It is something that is awaken in a person, your essence knows, and does not trust, a certain person.

I know so many people, intelligent people with very good high posisition jobs. Who have always felt this way, and they don't trust Obama, even with that smiling face looking into the camera, they trust him even less.

Thus the reason Obama can lie to us so easily. But there are others who adore him, those are the people who create, a figment of the imagination, and create a person that he is not.

Obama is neither a Muslim nor is he a Socialist. He's a Christian and nowhere near being a Socialist. Bernie Sanders is a Socialist. Dennis Kucinich is a Socialist. They WISH Obama was a Socialist, but he's less of a Socialist than Dwight D. Eisenhower...

He's a mediocre president who has pushed for more military spending, a stronger drug war and a continuation of the unconstitutional USA PATRIOT Act. I'm not voting for him for those and other reasons (plus I'm hoping that 5% of Californians vote for Gary Johnson so I'm one of them), but not because I'm some delusional racist who thinks that he's a Socialist Muslim Terrorist.

Pretty much.

There was a time in our nations history when the "right" proffered thoughtful and knowledgable opinions and analysis but at some point over the last twelve years that ceased to be the case.

As for a critical analysis of this piece, it defies an intelligent rebuttal because the very premiss is do devoid of anything approaching intellectual honesty, basic exposition, or even knowledge of the subject matter.

Take for example:

Assertion with out substantiation:
Both Sharia and socialism are united in their envy of Western society and need to change it. That is why Obama has become the savior of both Islam and socialism. He embodies both ideologies. The claim that Obama is a Christian was a silly joke, but a necessary lie for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of both creeds.
Use of Fallacious and discredited information:
That brings us to an important discovery by WND in an article by Jerome Corsi titled: "Obama's Ring: 'There is no God But Allah'." The article featured close-up photos of a ring still worn by Obama today in the White House, one that he has worn since his visit to Pakistan as a young man. The ring, which later also became his wedding ring, has very tiny and discrete Arabic calligraphy that means nothing to Americans, but to Arabic-speaking people like myself and Dr. Mark Gabriel, means quite a lot. Such Islamic calligraphy is commonly found throughout the gold markets of the Muslim world. I am not a writing expert, but I can clearly see on the ring the word 'La Ilaha IllaAllah. ("There is no god but god.")' Such a sentence in Arabic has a lot of the letters A and L which in Arabic are simply a straight line like the number one.
The ring bears no Arabic calligraphy or calligraphy of any sort.



snopes.com: Obama's Wedding Ring

Totally dishonest and refutable assertion:
According to Sharia, it is a capital crime for a Muslim individual or leader to shoot at fellow Muslims -- even Islamists -- for the purpose of protecting Americans. That would make Obama a violator of Sharia and an apostate. If Obama considers himself a Muslim and wears an Islamic ring, then he must have had a very hard time deciding on how to protect the consulate without killing Muslim attackers. His solution? Settling for the lesser of two evils: getting Muslims, in the form of Libyan security, to guard the property and in this way, forcing Muslims to shoot other Muslims in order to defend the consulate. But that plan was useless because even the Muslim guards had to follow Sharia, and ran away and left the Americans to be killed rather than violate Sharia themselves by killing other Muslims. Obama gambled with the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others and left them as sacrificial lambs rather than violate the dictates of Sharia.
Considering the President's record of killing not only Muslim terrorist but pirates as well, whether he had obtained the permission of the where killings occurred or not, it is hard to swallow this kind of tripe.

So you see, just a casual read of the piece demonstrates that it is without merit of any sort and doesn't deserve even the brief rebuttal that I have provided before. Additionally we have demonstrated over and over again that this sort of right-wing sophism has is bereft of even the most elementary definitional understanding of socialism and only the most rudimentary (if that) understanding of the myriad beliefs, motivations and aspirations of the numerous Islamic movements that pervade the middle east.

This opinion from the right is a joke. It's one anyone who can read the news headlines can demolish in ten seconds: Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki, Somali pirates.

It doesn't merit any deeper consideration than that.
