I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails from ostriches, in light of yesterday’s stories in which Senator Barack Hussein Obama allegedly “debunks” the Insight Magazine story and other charges–first made on this site–about his Muslim background.
But apparently ostriches can’t read. Because Obama’s alleged “debunking” didn’t debunk a thing. It raised more questions. For starters, many have cited an AP story and a CNN story, both of which sent “reporters” to check into the Muslim school that Obama attended. All of Al-AP’s Muslim “reporters” in Indonesia tell us that the school, SDN Menteng 1, is a public school, NOT an Islamic school or madrassa (which literally means “academy”), as Hillary Clinton’s camp claims in the Insight Story.
The vice principal of the school, Akmed Solichin, tells AP that
Most of our students are Muslim, but there are Christians as well. Everyone’s welcome here. . . it’s a public school.
And we should trust him because Muslims never lie or propagandize. Taqiyyah is a concept in Hinduism or maybe atheism? The same goes for the denials of Indonesia’s Islamofascist-dominated Ministry of Religious Affairs, which denies the school is Islamic. They hate America and would love one of their own in the White House, but they would never lie.
More important, in his own two autobiographies, Obama writes that his teacher at the school sent a note home to his mother that Obama made trouble by making faces while the class was studying the Koran. Uh, sorry, but public schools DO NOT study the Koran. Islamic schools do. And which suras was Obama studying? How about the many suras that preach deception and killing of Infidels? It’s doubtful that the school didn’t teach those. It’s more likely that they did. And which violent Hadiths did the school teach? We’ll never know. And Obama won’t be trumpeting them.
So Christians and others are welcome at the Muslim school Obama attended. That proves nothing. Everyone (except women) would be welcome in most Islamic schools around the world–a great opportunity to indoctrinate and convert them. How do you think Adam Gadahn a/k/a Azzam Al-Amriki learned about Islam before he became a fully converted, educated Muslim? It wasn’t by osmosis.
And finally, there is the glaring red flag on Obama’s attendance at Fransiskus Assisi, a Catholic school.
AP reports this:
At first, Obama attended the Catholic school, Fransiskus Assisi, where documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim, the religion of his stepfather.
The document required that each student choose one of five state-sanctioned religions when registering _ Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic or Protestant. Gibbs said he wasn’t sure why the document had Obama listed as a Muslim.
Gee, if he wasn’t a Muslim, but a Catholic, why would a Catholic identify as a Muslim in a Catholic school? He and his parents were trying to hide his Catholic background from a Catholic school?
I don’t know about him, but when my parents enrolled me–a Jew–at Akiva Hebrew Day School, they didn’t tell Rabbi Schostak that I, Debbie Schlussel, am a Muslim . . . just to make me sound more exotic.
And I doubt that’s the reason Obama self-identified as a Muslim at Catholic school.
The real reason might just be the logical one: that it’s the truth. That he actually was a Muslim.
One other thing: Obama told NBC’s Today Show:
Me going to school in Indonesia for two years at a public school there at the age of 7 and 8 is probably not going to be endangering in some way the people of America.
Well, that depends on what they taught him there. If we shouldn’t be worried about what Obama learned in a school that he admits taught him the Koran (shortly before he self-identified as a Muslim at a Catholic school), then we should stop worrying about Palestinian Authority TV training kids at age 3 to kill Jews and Americans and become homicide bombers.
After all, what they learn when they are young and impressionable doesn’t matter. Does it? . . .
