Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, Always A Muslim

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE, 01/30/08: EXCLUSIVE – Obama’s Nation of Islam Staffers, Edward Said & “Inflexible Jews” Causing Mid-East Conflict: An Obama Insider Reveals the Real Barack
**** UPDATE, 01/25/07: Barack Hussein Obama’s alleged debunking of Islamic background raises even MORE questions. ****
**** UPDATE, 01/19/07: Looks like Hillary Clinton’s camp agrees with me and has dug up more info that confirms my suspicions about Obama and his Muslim background, including his attendance at a Wahabbi (ie., extremist Sunni) Madrassa (Islamic religious academy). Hillary’s camp says Obama is covering up his Muslim past. Why? ****
Many months ago, readers began asking me whether Barack Obama is Muslim. Since he identifies as a Christian, I said, “no,” and responded that he was not raised by his Kenyan father.
But, then, I decided to look further into Obama’s background. His full name–as by now you have probably heard–is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Hussein is a Muslim name, which comes from the name of Ali’s son–Hussein Ibn Ali. And Obama is named after his late Kenyan father, the late Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., apparently a Muslim.
And while Obama may not identify as a Muslim, that’s not how the Arab and Muslim Streets see it. In Arab culture and under Islamic law, if your father is a Muslim, so are you. And once a Muslim, always a Muslim. You cannot go back. In Islamic eyes, Obama is certainly a Muslim. He may think he’s a Christian, but they do not.


Then, there are the other items in his background. As best-selling author Scott Turow wrote in Salon, Obama went to a Muslim school for two years in Indonesia. His mother, Anna, married an Indonesian man (likely another Muslim, as Indonesia is Muslim-dominated and has the largest Islamic population in the world).
And Obama has a “born-again” affinity for the nation of his Muslim father, Kenya, and his Kenyan sister. (Although Kenya is largely Christian, it has a fast-growing Muslim population that has engaged in a good deal of religious violence and riots against Christians. And Kenyan courts will apply Sharia law, when the participants are Muslim.) Wrote Turow:

Obama’s father died in a traffic accident in Nairobi in 1982, but while Obama was working in Chicago, he met his Kenyan sister, Auma, a linguist educated in Germany who was visiting the United States. When she returned to Kenya in 1986 to teach for a year at the University of Nairobi, Obama finally made the trip to his father’s homeland he had long promised himself. There, he managed to fully embrace a heritage and a family he’d never fully known and come to terms with his father, whom he’d long regarded as an august foreign prince, but now realized was a human being burdened by his own illusions and vulnerabilities.

So, even if he identifies strongly as a Christian, and even if he despised the behavior of his father (as Obama said on Oprah); is a man who Muslims think is a Muslim, who feels some sort of psychological need to prove himself to his absent Muslim father, and who is now moving in the direction of his father’s heritage, a man we want as President when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam? Where will his loyalties be?
Is that even the man we’d want to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency, if Hillary Clinton offers him the Vice Presidential candidacy on her ticket (which he certainly wouldn’t turn down)?
NO WAY, JOSE . . . Or, is that, HUSSEIN?

First of all, Debbie is entitled to her opinion without being called names. It is after all an OPINION…right Debbie?

Certainly you cannot see into Obama’s heart and verify he’s an undercover Muslim posing as a Christian?

Also, if Obama is a Muslim..why all the Jeremiah Wright nonsense during the election? I want Debbie to answer that.

Lastly, a quote from one of our founding fathers:

“I beg you be persuaded that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”

While I think someone needs a few more years in journalism school before she posts further ‘factual’ posts, I really don’t think Obama’s religion should be this big of a concern. What I’d like to know is why we’re still sending our troops over to die for a pointless war, when our country is so fucked up? Pretty soon, all our military is going to be off ‘liberating’ every Muslim country that if someone wants to invade us, we won’t even have a chance. Close the borders, start making American goods again, and stop fighting Israel’s wars. The terrorists don’t have to do anything at this point, the American government is going to bring us down all on its’ own. By the way, the President is only one third of the government. You guys really aren’t giving the other two branches enough credit.

I think many people need to heed the warning about Obama although I agree that he may be a secret Muslim and his Christian affilation a cover for acceptance, I have come to the conclusion Obama’s true religion is Obamaism. After hearing his ideas for change and redirection of our country, (yes I said ours not his own country) and the follow through of his actions to cause that change I see him as a liar and a destoyer not a teller of truth or a builder. I see a hindrence not a help to the millions of true blue Americans. The awarding of his Nobel Peace prize proved to be wishfull thinking, the title anointed one which I’ve heard as an accolade given him is entirely misplaced unless he is anointed by the forces of evil. As I boil all this down to it’s lowest common denominator either Obama is insidious or he is the prime definition of the peter principal.


Paul on April 13, 2012 at 9:12 pm

I’ve never seen a more narcissistic person in my life except perhaps Charlie Sheen. Every time Barack Hussein Obama opens his mouth, and talks in his controlled (“better watch exactly how I say this or I’ll accidentally let the truth slip out”) staccato pace, I literally want to puke. God help us when we elect persons to places of power and prominence who so overtly display such disdain for this great nation (sadly getting less great every day as we turn out back on our Creator). I challenge anyone who studies Obama’s ACTIONS to still believe he is not Muslim ( He is a socialist Muslim to the core.

I realy think people should dig into there own ,and not mind any one elses business . We are always so quik to judge others and our familys are just as bad if not worse. We live our lives the way we want and no one says anything about the way you and you’r family live, so in other words leave others alone and take care of you and you’rs, thats why some familys are such a mess and can’t control them, but they have the time to put other peoples business in there mouth like they are making a living, what i am trying to is why don’t people mind there own business and leave others alone. look at you’r self in the mirror real good before you open you’r mouth, and ask GOD to help you to take that gossiping mouth from you. people always say they are a child of GOD and doing the devils work, nice going.. Do you’r self a favor and pray more and ask for forgivness..SO EVERY BODY MIND YOU’R OWN BUSINESS. ~DELILAH~

To tell the truth of history and fact that the the Fourth Reich now financed by BHO is operational and using the USA as its slave is a matter for which I ,may be sanctioned for discussing in open court!

I filed my civil fraud Case in New York State Supreme Court in Kings County against all those involved in the fraud injuring me personally as I have fired BHO on January 23, 2009 making it a personal matter because he was not NBC and therefor not eligible for POTUS and that the fraud in NYS is based upon the NYS BOE commissioners arbitrary creation of the use of “Born a Citizen” rather and NBC as the new eligibility instruction to get on the NYS ballot in 2008 and 2012 and the resultant heightened burden of duty that entails official responsibilities having acted with arbitrary and capricious malice. As such I sued everyone involved in the fraud in any candidacy questionable on the ballot in 2008 Obama, McCain, and Calero and the campaign officials associated with the campaigns and the Jesuit officials who sit as public officers past and present protecting the arbitrary use of the 14th Amendment term Born a Citizen. Pleadings at website:

It is confirmed by an opposing attorney that Judge Arthur M. Schack’s sua sponte Order to Show cause hearing scheduled for Monday May 7, 2012 at 2:30 PM in courtroom 479 of the NYS Supreme Court for the County of Kings located at 360 Adams Street Brooklyn New York is on and Plaintiff will show video clips of Obama admitting to his Islamic Faith as just one matter of several to be sanctioned for..

Strunk’s response to the sua sponte order see

Chris Strunk on May 4, 2012 at 6:49 pm

well done this hidden muslim!!!: killed OBL, refinanced US economy that seems to be gradually recovering, jobs up, law and order better than before, out of recession, threat of terrorism on US mainland brought to virtually negligible if not totally, even expanded US influence into Arabia and supporting democratic populations of arabia, egypt, bahrain, morrocco, algeria and everywhere else! bringing the US values to the world without attacking them in a crusader zeal. Something that a jew would be scared of. so, if B hussein Obama is a mulsim, the whole nation of the americans should be happy and proud, and thankful to him. well, that obviously raises the question: if religion has something to do with behaviour, then what is the religion of all those banking thieves who brought current economic death and destruction to the USA and the rest of the world?

muslim on May 5, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Muslim, fist of all…learn how to communicate in “my” language or shut up! Secondly, you haven’t a clue…you don’t know what your talking about. Your a sheep, blindly walking off the cliff following all the other sheep! Economy getting better, really, wake up moron the economy could fall tomorrow. Law and order,…crime is up and will continue up. NO mere man can do anything about that, especially, an evil, maniacal, venerate liar like Obama. Thirdly, you are “dead”, that’s right dead. The God, creator has not regenerated you, thus you WILL spend eternity in a HELL.

    By the FOOL…there are some here NOT talking about RELIGION. Religion is what MAN does about his condition, surrendering to the truth about God and his Word is where a mere man can be translated from DEATH unto LIFE Eternal! Wake up from the dead and be made new.

    Jack on January 30, 2014 at 4:21 pm

and what does Martin Luther say about such thieving people?

“If a thief steals ten gulden he must hang; if he robs people on the highway, his head is gone. But a Jew, when he steals ten tons of gold through his usury, is dearer than God himself!”

i thought a religious quote may be appropriate here as we are talking of people’s religions here.

Why on earth have no fatwa been proclaimed on this infidel dog? He swears against Allah as a kafir, is that not a death sentence from any Muslim? Why aren’t they trying to get him?

Obama must go!!! on August 14, 2012 at 4:51 pm

It is very common for converts to Islam to change their name. Muhammad_Ali is just one example. When he converted to Islam in 1964 and changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali.

Why would a “Christian” take an obvious Muslim name if he didn’t have some strong connection with Islam—like being a convert?

I think that the strongest evidence of Barry Obama favorable views toward Islam/Muslims was then he changed his name to Barrack Hussein Obama. Changing your name is a very strong way to identify with a group.

In my opinion, the bigger question is how does a 1st term Senator bet Hillary Clinton and her machine in the 2008 primary. He must have powerful backers that have lots of money. Maybe his name changes, along with the way he bowed to Arab leaders while on his world tour during his first year as president. I just wonder if his backers are foreign Muslims.

Jeff S. on August 16, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    I hope you read this. Thanks

    I am a muslim from Jakarta and let me Inform you that Obama attended a Christian School in Jakarta ( Asisi Elementary School). Just open and type “SD Asisi”, you will find out so much information about that school (It’s logo even has a cross). Then he moved to Menteng Elementary School (it’s a Public School/Secular School not a madrassa/Islamic school; if you don’t trust me, just come here to Jakarta and check it yourself). No he’s not a Muslim just because his father was. In Islam, the faith is not an inheritance. You decide yourself and bear the risks yourself.

    In additional, a name doesn’t really matter. Look Salman Rushdie. His name is a beautiful Islamic name.He was born in a Muslim family. But now he (Salman) is NOT a muslim. Furhermore he turns out to be one of the most hated (by Muslims). Your name doesn’t make you a Muslim, your Shahadah (proclamation) does.

    And also, A Muslim is not allowed to lie about his/her faith just because a profane reasons. In this case they will called munafiquun (hypocrite) and Allah really hate it. I wonder how some people in a big country like USA can be misinformed while they have better access to Information Sources.

    Dear admin, please approve my comment. Thanks.

It’s a real shame that the majority of the readers who have commented are attacking religions.
Neither religion promotes homosexuality or abortions, so ask yourself how can he be of either faith???
Really take a good look at who Obama is working for, this will help you understand how your president will be selected in the coming days. You’re vote is worth absoloutely nothing as is your life, those who run your world will run you into your graves.
Seriously hope Allah save you from what is going on in front of your faces.

when Osama bin Larden was killed no violence was reported in the muslim world only because he was killed by a muslim
If Osama loves america and is truly a christian he should not use his fathers muslim name in the oath cermony when he swears in as president of the United States.
Why do Muslims use American names and hide their real identity when living in the US

annonmus on November 14, 2012 at 12:16 am

Yeah and he swore on the Koran like a Moslem and hates’ America cuz he was born in Kenya and wants’ to definately distroy the American goverment by making it Marxist and all and hes’ a bad person too

Sonny Moon on December 11, 2012 at 3:37 pm

In Islam you are not Muslim solely because your dad is. Each man to his own, no matter the beliefs of your parents, In Islam you are not considered Muslim if you do not follow the 5 Pillars of Islam, which includes the Shaheed, the Proclaimation of Faith, which Obama denies thus by default as he denies he is a Muslim, he is not a Muslim. Also within these 5 Pillars are the five daily prayers and the pilgrimage. And besides, it is obligatory for a man to go to the mosque every friday, all and all we can safely conclude Obama is not a Muslim, to his loss.

a knowledgable person on January 17, 2013 at 3:58 am

He better proves him a christian because ISLAM does not need such loosers who is hiding is religion for a stupid reason that he is living in u.s. hey no one is going to kill you. You are’nt alone there are lakhs of them.!
If you are a true muslim you will have enough strength to get died in the name of ISLAM. Thats why i think osama was even better than you!!

Shoaib Ali on January 19, 2013 at 2:22 pm


Please correct your statement – In Arab culture and under Islamic law, if your father is a Muslim, so are you. Factually incorrect. a) What Arab culture thinks about you being a Muslim or not is not relevant. b) Faith as determined by Islamic law requires a declaration of faith (There is no God but Allah and the Prophet Muhammed is the Last Messenger). The declaration has to be in front of witnesses. Thus by law President Obama is not a muslim.

M Sheikh on January 21, 2013 at 11:34 am

Unbelievable!!! this is all paranoia and fear mongering. Funny, people like Debbie Schlussel and Anne Coulter say these things and people thing it is fine. If anyone else does this on an individual level at work, school, etc. They are called paranoid, mentally unstable and told they need help. well, it sounds like Debbie needs alot of help. paranoid that someone is a “secret” muslim, worried that someone is having sex somewhere and enjoying it, worried that someone might be “homosexual”. get a life Debbie, have a drink, make some porn (because that looks like all you’re good for).

mark on May 31, 2013 at 1:30 am

Obama is a muslim.
I’ve seen videos of Obama bashing the Bible on Youtube.
I have also seen videos of Obama defending the Boston Bombing saying that Islam is a religion of peace even though it’s not.

Jay on December 7, 2013 at 12:37 pm

Regardless of the topic, that is all I see…maybe if people talked about the ACTUAL topic instead of using this as a chance to put other people down, swear their heads off and be out right mean the root of the question could be found, or maybe not. Post your comments folks but geez, there is no reason to spew such hatred towards one another. If Obama is or is not Muslim makes no difference. If any of you know God the Father then you know that we will all be judged by him in the end. We will stand alone on that day and we will have to answer for ourselves, remember that when you decide to berate and belittle someone. Everyone on here is bound together through one thing and that is not Obama but hatred. So sad to see…

Michelle on January 21, 2014 at 12:43 am

Jay get a life and while doing that go get your facts straight if you dont know what your talking about, shut the fuckup. go learn about Islam. It doesnt mean if one Christian is an alcoholic, the whole Christianation are drunks.

Farouk Gabier on February 23, 2014 at 9:36 am

Muslim or not, I just have to say this. Who gives us a right to judge a person by his religion? I think to clarify; I am saddened by what happened in 9-11 and all other terrorist acts, it was executed by deluded individuals who hide behind a religion to hit back at the world who kept judging and ridiculing their religion, culture, etc. It is no different from the Klu Klux Klan that was started by six veterans from the Confederate Army.who themselves felt that they had the right to terrify and hide behind a hood to conceal their identities while forcing their believes and self-made commandments against those who are against them and the innocent. My point being, if one studies a religion deep enough, one would understand the basis of the belief. Not by the actions of a few mentally deluded individual groups. One needs to discern between a religious act or an act of terrorism. It is two different things altogether. What the terrorist have done is to condamn a religion they fought hard to justify, in the wrong and misguided way..

Once a muslim, always a muslim? Errr, where did you find this gem from… CNN?

An arabic name does not mean the person is a muslim. There’re thousands of christian arabs who will graciously tell you that. Please find them and ask this. Don’t worry about the beard, it’s an arab thing too, regardless of religion… not just a muslim thing.

People have been known to walk out of Islam and embrace some other religion, or become an atheist. Some of these ex-muslims may even have more violent feelings towards Islam than you do, for whatever reason. I’m sure you’d be delighted to dig up their stories to tell in your blog next time.

Anyway, I’m not sure why you think you need to go to war with a religion. Does that mean you would support those who take up arms against the followers of that religion regardless of whether they are peace-loving people or homicidal lunatics? How is that different from the witch hunting of yore? O well, I’m sure you can justify your violent feelings towards an unknown and therefore feared entity, in this case… Islam, somehow.

Ami on November 17, 2014 at 2:51 pm

Some of my brother’s has post-MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
I will not point you on this but I want to tell you. You pray’s for your own people & we pray’s for all mankind. In this blog majorities has use slang words, indirectly abuse not the president but the name.
My Question is why do you think that only a name can change a loyalty of a person weather he is a Barack Hussain Obama or a mother Marry. WHY..!!!
Brother I am not here to give you lecture about ISLAM but to tell you whatever is your misconceptions are they based on righteous foundation.
That’s it Brother Just think for a while before you share
