Hello America. Have you seen this?

Is he Black or is he White?
Or is he just a pile of steaming something or other?

A big Hi, to our American Cousins who live across the pond. I wonder if you guys have seen the following taken from the Pedestrian Infidel? It is about the mixed race Barack Hussein Obama. I have taken the liberty of bolding and italicing items of text I found interesting.

Barack Hussein Obama: "I will stand with the Muslims"

WASHINGTON - Although Sen. Barack Obama is a Christian, his childhood and family connections to Islam are beginning to complicate his presidential ambitions.

The Illinois Democrat spent much of last week refuting unfounded reports that he had been educated in a madrassa, or radical Islamic school, when he lived in Indonesia as a boy.

The Indonesian school Obama attended in Jakarta is a public school that is not and never has been a Madrassa,” said a statement put out by the senator’s staff.

But the school did teach the Quran, Islam’s holy book, along with subjects such as math and science, according to Obama, who attended when he was 9 and 10.

In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school,” he wrote in his first memoir, “Dreams from my Father.” “The teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during Koranic studies.”

Obama — whose father, stepfather, brother and grandfather were Muslims — explained his own first name, Barack, in “Dreams”: “It means ‘Blessed.’ In Arabic. My grandfather was a Muslim.

In his second memoir, “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama added: “Although my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist.

Still, when his father, a black Kenyan named Barack Obama Sr., died in 1982, “the family wanted a Muslim burial,” Obama quoted his brother, Roy, as saying in “Dreams.”

The statement put out by Obama’s office last week referred to his father simply as “an atheist,” without mentioning his Muslim upbringing.

But with pundits already making faith a major issue in this presidential campaign — as evidenced by questions about Republican Mitt Romney’s Mormonism — Obama’s religious background is likely to come under further scrutiny.

He comes from a father who was a Muslim,” said civil rights author Juan Williams of National Public Radio. “I mean, I think that given we’re at war with Muslim extremists, that presents a problem.”

Obama’s grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, for whom the senator was given his middle name, Hussein, was fiercely devoted to Islam, according to an account in “Dreams.” The grandfather, who died in 1979, was described by his widow when Obama visited Kenya in the late 1980s.

What your grandfather respected was strength. Discipline,” Obama quoted his grandmother as telling him. “This is also why he rejected the Christian religion, I think.

“For a brief time, he converted, and even changed his name to Johnson. But he could not understand such ideas as mercy towards your enemies, or that this man Jesus could wash away a man’s sins.

To your grandfather, this was foolish sentiment, something to comfort women,” she added. “And so he converted to Islam — he thought its practices conformed more closely to his beliefs.

When Obama was 2 years old, his parents divorced and his father moved away from the family’s home in Hawaii. Four years later, his mother married an Indonesian man, Lolo Soetoro, who moved his new wife and stepson to Jakarta.

“During the five years that we would live with my stepfather in Indonesia, I was sent first to a neighborhood Catholic school and then to a predominately Muslim school,” Obama wrote in “Audacity.” “In our household, the Bible, the Koran, and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf.”

Obama’s stepfather was a practicing Muslim.

Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths,” Obama recalled. “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.”

It was to Lolo that I turned to for guidance and instruction,” Obama recalled. “He introduced me as his son.”

Although Obama wrote of “puzzling out the meaning of the muezzin’s call to evening prayer,” he was not raised as a Muslim, according to the senator’s office. Nor was he raised as a Christian by his mother, a white American named Ann Dunham who was deeply skeptical of religion.

Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones,” Obama wrote. “For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.”

As a result, he said, “I was not raised in a religious household.”

Later in life, however, he was drawn to the writings of an influential American Muslim who served as the spokesman for the militant Nation of Islam.

Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different,” Obama wrote. “His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.” [Disgusting. I have read Malcolm's biography years ago and it is hateful to whites to the extreme. Thanks for letting us whites know how you admire him.]

He added: “Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation.”

While working as a community organizer for a group of churches in Chicago, Obama was repeatedly asked to join Christian congregations, but begged off.

I remained a reluctant skeptic, doubtful of my own motives, wary of expedient conversion, having too many quarrels with God to accept a salvation too easily won,” he wrote.

But after much soul searching, he eventually was baptized at Trinity United Church of Christ.

It came about as a choice and not an epiphany; the questions I had did not magically disappear,” he explained. “But kneeling beneath that cross on the South Side of Chicago, I felt God’s spirit beckoning me. I submitted myself to His will, and dedicated myself to discovering His truth.”

Obama’s family connections to Islam would endure, however. For example, his brother Roy opted for Islam over Christianity, as Obama recounted when describing his 1992 wedding.

The person who made me proudest of all,” Obama wrote, “was Roy. Actually, now we call him Abongo, his Luo name, for two years ago he decided to reassert his African heritage. He converted to Islam, and has sworn off pork and tobacco and alcohol.”

Meanwhile, Obama remained sharply critical of what he called “the religious absolutism of the Christian right.”

In “Audacity,” the senator wrote that such believers insist “not only that Christianity is America’s dominant faith, but that a particular, fundamentalist brand of that faith should drive public policy, overriding any alternative source of understanding, whether the writings of liberal theologians, the findings of the National Academy of Sciences, or the words of Thomas Jefferson.”

As for the Democratic Party, Obama observed that “a core segment of our constituency remains stubbornly secular in orientation, and fears — rightly, no doubt — that the agenda of an assertively Christian nation may not make room for them or their life choices.”

Although the overwhelming majority of Americans describe themselves as Christians, Obama does not believe that any one religion should define the United States.“We are no longer just a Christian nation,” he argues in “Audacity,” which was published last year. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.

Obama calls the Iraq war “a botched and ill-advised U.S. military incursion into a Muslim country.” He is also protective of civil rights for Muslims in the U.S.

In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans … have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging,” he laments. “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Interesting output today GA, no wonder your blog is so popular.

Reading thru all the articles today I cant help but see a thread in it all, though it may not be obvious at first. The articles are not linked in themselves but you will find the message....

Stuff the euro, hello islam, we gotta save the dollar, or else we have other ways of doing it you dont want to know about.

I had a feeling I was seeing something until I went back and read and watched the Hal Turner video, then checked out his blog. I reckon the video is a planted story, but hey thats what the blogs do, they make you see things that are not really there and work equally hard at making you not see things that are really there.
The fun, or scary, bit is trying to work it out.

I see you reckon David Ike has joined up a few of the dots GA, truth is that man is so far ahead in his dot connecting than the rest of us that he is out of sight. Thats why he is still on the net pumping out his stuff. He has been so spot on with many things that he wrote and spoke of in his early writings, but at the time were just too way out for most people to grasp, that he was ridiculed and his messages were rendered ineffective. Mind you he has had his really weird moments, lizard alien people? Sounds like he had a bad trip or something.
However I reckon folks are catching up with Ike, check out his recent free videos on his site and you will see how right this guy is and has been.

Cheers,
Harry.

Religions are just an aspect of ethnic identity. Normally they are brainwashed into you by the age of seven. Very few people change their inherited beliefs and it is a sad part of the human evolution that we havent got beyond that stage of development.

Its all happening so fast now that the momentum has cranked up a notch. If level headed Americans cant see through this "Obamination" they'll have their worst nightmare with his finger on the button, pointed internally at them.
The minute I saw Boris Johnstone was endorsing him I knew something stank.
How can a Tory endorse a die hard Socialist as leader of the Free World unless there is a massive agenda here to bring the USA to her knees?
THe MSN have typically given Obama a free ride and the probity of the vote called into question.
Hi donations are massive, where are they coming from, the survivors of Hurricane Katrina from their welfare cheques?
Your blog is well read arounfd the world Green arrow, you've excelled yourself today.

I couldn't give a flying pig if he's half black/half white. It's the whole Marxist/globalist/open borders thing that gets me.

One thing is sure, I ain't voting for him.

The blind and the under educated seem to think he's the dog's bollocks.

My husband is from London , we've got a lot of family over there and most said they are voting BNP next time around.

Typically for his race ,he has never had a proper job,and yet manages to have ghost-written two volumes of memoires about his wonderful life,which are notable for thier omissions only,vote rigging,dispensing public money to communist terrorists to indoctrinate American children,and dodgy birth certificates,surely to any reasoning human being ,if your father is kenyan,it seems likely that you are too,no matter what he pretends to be ,genetics do not lie.

Hate to have to turn the guns on Americans,..but they wouldn't be Americans any more would they under Islamic rule?

The white DNA has made him look human, so much more than his cousin "Obingo", co star on Obama and Obingo on Youtube. The "darker" one is trying to get elected in kenya, the cleaned up one in the USA.
See both onwww.Islamanzi.com
Its horrible to see what one thread of DNA from a lax white parent can do.

This affects us much more than the average person knows. He's been endorsed by Boris the Mayor, numerous columnists and gets a free ride everywhere. Iran is gagging for him?
why is it only on this British blog I can see his smarmy Muslim face about to get the Big Seat in the free world?
