    Obama: Islam Has Shaped the U.S.A.
    By Robert Spencer
    FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, April 07, 2009

    "We will convey,” said Barack Obama to the Turkish Parliament Monday, “our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.” (So is he talking about Kenya or what????)

    Undeniably the Islamic faith has done a great deal to shape the world – a statement that makes no value judgment about exactly how it has shaped the world. It has formed the dominant culture in what is known as the Islamic world for centuries. But what on earth could Obama mean when he says that Islam has also “done so much” to shape his own country?

    Unless he considers himself an Indonesian, Obama’s statement was extraordinarily strange. After all, how has the Islamic faith shaped the United States? Were there Muslims along Paul Revere’s ride, or standing next to Patrick Henry when he proclaimed, “Give me liberty or give me death”? Were there Muslims among the framers or signers of the Declaration of Independence, which states that all men – not just Muslims, as Islamic law would have it – are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Were there Muslims among those who drafted the Constitution and vigorously debated its provisions, or among those who enumerated the Bill of Rights, which guarantees – again in contradiction to the tenets of Islamic law – that there should be no established national religion, and that the freedom of speech should not be infringed?

    There were not.

    Did Muslims play a role in the great struggle over slavery that defined so much of our contemporary understandings of the nature of this republic and of the rights of the individual within it? They did not. Did the Islamic faith shape the way the United States responded to the titanic challenges of the two World Wars, the Great Depression, or the Cold War? It did not. Did the Islamic faith, with its legal apparatus that institutionalizes discrimination against non-Muslims, shape the civil rights movement in the United States? The Civil Rights Act of 1964 mandated equality of access to public facilities – a hard-won victory that came at a great cost, and one that Muslim groups have tried to roll back in the United States recently. One notable example of such attempts was the alcohol-in-cabs controversy at the Minneapolis-St. Paul international airport, when Muslim cabdrivers began to refuse service to customers who were carrying alcohol, on Islamic religious grounds. The core assumption underlying this initiative – that discrimination on the basis of religion is justified – cut right to the heart of the core principle of the American polity, that “all men are created equal,” that is, that they have a right to equal treatment in law and society.

    Surveying the whole tapestry of American history, one would be hard-pressed to find any significant way in which the Islamic faith has shaped the United States in terms of its governing principles and the nature of American society. Meanwhile, there are numerous ways in which, if there had been a significant Muslim presence in the country at the time, some of the most cherished and important principles of American society and law may have met fierce resistance, and may never have seen the light of day.

    So in what way has the Islamic faith shaped Obama’s country? The most significant event connected to the Islamic faith that has shaped the character of the United States was the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Those attacks have shaped the nation in numerous ways: they’ve led to numerous innovations in airline security, which in generations to come – if today’s politically correct climate continues to befog minds -- may be added to future versions of the fanciful “1001 Muslim Inventions” exhibition. The Islamic faith has shaped the U.S. since 9/11 in leading to the spending of billions on anti-terror measures, and to the ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to Guantanamo, and to so many features of the modern political and social landscape that they cannot be enumerated within the space of a single article.

    Of course, it is certain that Obama had none of that in mind. But what could he possibly have had in mind? His statement was either careless or ignorant, or both – not qualities we need in a Commander-in-Chief even in the best of times.

            So was he speaking "tongue in cheek" and I took it too seriously? As you mentioned, that is the ONLY way I have seen that islam has (re)shaped America.

                No, for now I am going to say he is an idiot.

                I believe that one should not attribute to malice what can be explained by mere stupidity.

                I believe he really believes he is helping the situation, I have no evidence yet he is truly evil. We will see.

                  Re: Operation Open Eyes

                  Hi people, I appologise for being so absent in posting, but I have been quite busy with rehab, trying to get healthy so that I can get back to earning a paycheck once again..if that is I can find a job. I just discovered last Thur. on a trucking board, my company had that very same day, closed it's doors and filed for bankruptcy. I would have never known for quite some time had I not stopped in to check the board out. WOW, eh?
                  Now to more important issues of the day; has anyone ever heard of a secret govermental program called "Operation Open Eyes?" If you have a moment, you really should Google it and see for yourself just how chilling and sinister this really is. If and I cannot state if strong enough, but if this is for real as it has been described by a guest of George Nory on the Coast to Coast radio program; the name of that guest being Rayelan Allan; to copy a part her intro on his website;
                  discussed her unusual and personal experiences in such areas as covert government programs, mind control, and secret societies like Knights Templar. At one point in her life she began to hear voices, and initially thought she had been chosen to receive New Age-style channeled messages. Later, she found out from her husband, a Naval Officer in the CIA, that what she was actually hearing was "voice to skull" technology, developed as part of the government's electronic warfare program. For more on this kind of mind control, see the article Operation Open Eyes. [ I took the time to Google this and actually only found a couple of articles regarding this. But from what I read it basically describes a program whereby subjects are subjected to some form of brain hypnotism I guess it is; not really sure just how they do it, but in any event, the long and short of it is that the concept is to create walking time bombs that go off and kill a bunch of people and then kill themselves in order to preserve the secrets of this operation, in order to facilitate a climate of anti gun laws hysteria, that ultimately will allow the authorities to creat laws to take our guns from us. I have long wondered if in fact something like this might not be going on, but just dismissed it from my mind as paranoid thinking. It really does make sense though when you stop and think about it. In one of the articles, it was stated that whomever it is that is behind this thing, clearly realized what with all of the gun owners in America, there would be no way to disarm them, short of an all out and out war. So it was discussed, planned and implemented some years going back, according to the article, to take our guns away from us in this manner, and... to foment civil unrest as well, in order to bring about martial law, or the equivalent of such, in order to bring about the destruction of our constitution and our nation. If you have some time to spare, you might want to think about checking this out. Real scary stuff that will keep you up at nights. Ok folks, this is my contribution for the time being. I wish it was on a lighter subject, but we all need to be made aware of the evil that just keeps coming, coming, and coming at us unabatedly and without reserve. Won't be too much longer I think, til we will no longer be America; especially with your highness, the current presidnt of the United States bowing to the Arabs, and giving our country away. Ok, I am out. G ]

                    I do not think that a religion that hanged a 13 year old girl for the crime of being raped, is going to have a positive effect on the US.
                    Those who would trade freedom for security will end up with neither.

                      I suppose that 'Oath of Office' where he swore to defend this country was just a "formality" to a man with such a soaring vision of the world re-made in his own image.
                      However dispite his shakey citizenship it does make him liable to charges of treason and I think we have only just begun to see his truely nefarious nature.

                        That, I definitely agree with and at times, worries me. :(

                            Nah, even a person with half a brain could figure out that he is a muslim.

                            What has me fired up today is that the White House is denying Obama bowed to the Saudi king, saying he just bent down a little because he was so much taller than the king. In other words, I guess we are not to believe what we see with our own eyes.
