Obama Wrong or Lied to Notre Dame Students: "War is Deceipt" vs "The Golden Rule"

Flopping Aces makes some excellent but very concerning points regarding statements President Barack Hussein Obama made during his speech to students at Notre Dame University. Obama who is very familiar with Islam, compared Christianity and other religions "Golden Rule" (do unto others as you would have others do unto you) with the teachings of Islam as one and the same. It turns out that couldn't be farther from the truth.

These remarks when reviewed against the facts make me wonder if the President was simply wrong or is intentionally deceiving the world.

From Obama’s Notre Dame speech:

For if there is one law that we can be most certain of, it is the law that binds people of all faiths and no faith together. It is no coincidence that it exists in Christianity and Judaism; in Islam and Hinduism; in Buddhism and humanism. It is, of course, the golden rule - the call to treat one another as we wish to be treated. The call to love. To serve. To do what we can to make a difference in the lives of those with whom we share the same brief moment on this earth.

So many of you at Notre Dame - by the last count, upwards of 80 percent - have lived this law of love through the service you’ve performed at schools and hospitals; international relief agencies and local charities.

In fact the Christian “law of love” (the Commandment of Jesus to “love your neighbor”) is explicitly universal. Asked “who is my neighbor,” Jesus answered with the parable of the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).

The Koran, in contrast, is explicit that its call to treat others in a loving way is NOT universal:

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. [Koran verse 48.29]

O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge indeed. [9.73]

The Koran is replete with instructions for carrying out this “law of hatred” as one might call it:

I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them. [8.12]

Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame…. [9.14]

Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. [9.29]

Obama knows the Koran (Qur'an, Quran, Qu'ran)

Obama is fully aware that the Islamic version of the golden rule applies only to other Muslims. Not only did he study the Koran as a boy, but he even studied “menjaji,” which is the Indonesian term for recitation of the Koran in Arabic. Menjaji is the gold-standard of fundamentalist Islamic education. This is how Obama was able to recite the Shahada for NYT columnist Nicholas Kristof “with a first rate [Arabic] accent.” He was drilled on it.

The Shahada is the Islamic profession of faith: “I witness that there is no god but Allah; I witness that Muhammad is his prophet.” According to Sharia law, a single sincere utterance of this profession of faith constitutes conversion to Islam. The Shahada comes at the beginning of the Islamic call to prayer, which Obama recited for Kristof. Judge for yourself whether his utterance was sincere:

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

Having drilled the Shahada as a boy, Obama certainly knew what it meant to recite these words to Kristof. Obama IS a Muslim.

If he were a moral Muslim, he would speak about the need for Islamic reform, instead of covering up the unpleasant truths of orthodox Islam. By hiding his own Islam, Obama is following another unpleasant truth about orthodox Islam: that it is a religion of deceit.

Tabari’s History recounts the story of Nuaym, a recent convert to Islam, who set Muhammad’s enemies against each other at the Battle of the Trench:

‘I ‘ve become a Muslim, but my tribe does not know of my Islam; so command me whatever you will.’ Muhammad said, ‘Make them abandon each other if you can so that they will leave us; for war is deception.’ [Tabari volume 8, p. 23. This incident is also recorded in Ishaq's Life of Muhammad, p. 458.]

Like Nuaym, Obama’s "tribe" does not know of his Islam either. (Well, his African tribe does, but his American tribe does not.) That is the price we pay for America’s Ignorance about Islam.

With just a little knowledge about Islam, we can even tell what kind of Muslim Obama is. His deceptions about Islam demonstrate that he is orthodox. He tells the same “religion of peace” lies that CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood organizations tell.

When ignorant multi-culturalists call Islam a "religion of peace", they are just following their own injunction to respect every culture but western liberty (which they call oppressive). But Obama is not an ignorant multi-culturalist. He knows his Islam. When he calls Islam a religion of peace, the meaning is very clear: “war is deceit.”
