Obama’s Muslim Connection – July 12, 2008
Okay, so everyone has come to the conclusion, as a result of a media onslaught of Obama defense, that Obama is not Muslim. But I keep running into Obama in a Muslim environment. Maybe he is not a Muslim, but he just might have a soft spot in his heart for all things Muslim. His long time friend and real estate deal partner was Tony Rezko, a Syrian. His church of twenty years is closely associated with Louis Farrakhan, a Black Muslim. His other long time friend from his days as college teacher, Rashid Khaliki (a Muslim) granted funds to a Palestinian organization – and they are definitely Muslim.
His father was a Muslim from Kenya. Obama described his step-father this way.
“But the meaning didn’t suit the man, for Lolo possessed the good manners and easy grace of his people,” Barack Obama wrote of his Indonesian stepfather in Dreams From My Father.
Obama wrote that Soetoro’s “tennis game was good, his smile uncommonly even, and his temperament imperturbable.”
But Obama’s mother’s second husband did have his exotic side, which he shared with the young Obama during the years they lived in Indonesia.
“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” Obama wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”
Obama’s mother married two Muslim men and moved Obama to a predominantly Muslim country, Jarkarta, Indonesia, to live as a child.
Obama has visited Muslim Kenya three times, according to online news reports, once as a Senator. He was photographed with a Somali (Muslim) elder and dressed in the Somali (Muslim) garb. While in Kenya, Obama actively campaigned for his Muslim cousin, Raila Odinga.

Obama descends from the Luo (Kenya and Tanzania) Tribe on his father’s side. Obama has professed to be a symbol or role-model in Kenya.
There is no more time to do nothing.
