The deed is done. The speech has been made. It can't be retracted, it can hardly be interpreted. Sweet, honey-dripping words flowed from the mouth of the President, and all the world drank it in.
I am of the humble opinion that massive mistakes were made. For one, in the very use of the term "Muslim World," President Obama gave credence to existence of all Muslims, radicals included. Of course, he doesn't do that with Christianity. The only valid Christianity for Obama is his watered-down, liberation theology flavored religion. There is no place for right-wingers. No place for fundamentalists. They are a dangerous, practically terrorist off shoot of the real thing. (Have you noticed how they are attempting to pin the murder of John Tiller--abortion doctor--to the fundamentalist wing of Christianity?) Worse, Obama gave them the connection they were looking for. Here's what I mean:
Remember that in Islam, to have Islamic roots, then turn to Christianity, is punishable by death. Obama all but said his roots were Islamic, but that he was a Christian. What an invitation for derision and attack! It was a complete revelation of weakness.
President Obama then quoted the Koran in his speech. (Amazing that a Christian would validate the Koran by quoting it.) But even then, he did not quote the whole passage. What he said was totally out of Koranic context. Here is what he said;
"The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind; and whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind." Yusufali 5:32
I really find it odd that neither Obama nor any of his advisers realized that the meaning of verse 32 is not clear until it is quoted together with verse 33 which follows it. Here is the whole of YUSUFALI 5:32; "On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land."
What the verse is actually talking about is that if any child of Israel slays a Muslim, then he has slain all Muslims, meaning it becomes the right of all Muslims to take retribution. That is exactly what is said in the next verse, verse 33. Here it is:
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter." Yusafali 5:33
Obama then challenged Israel to change the way it deals with Palestinians (Muslims), and that the current form of Israeli administration is "intolerable." By quoting this half-verse, then chastising Israel, Obama has given a great big American NOD for jihadists to step up their attacks on Israel.....and for Iran to develop nuclear weapons and use them.
I'm sorry. We have a President that is either ignorant, or bent on bringing destruction to Israel and the United States. Worse, it is probably a combination of both. We not only need to pray for Israel, we need to do what Daniel did....REPENT on behalf of the sins of our people and leader.
