Barack Hussein Obama’s Keynote Address-An Analysis


This is an analysis of Barack Hussein Obama’s Keynote address given at Cairo on 04.06.09. The whole speech can be read at this link:

“The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of co-existence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars. More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam.”

Once again, America’s paranoia with regard to colonialism places the blame on the colonial nations of the 17th,18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, for cause of the hatred emanating from the Muslim peoples. Yet, during those 400 years, Islam was relatively at peace with the colonialists. The colonialists with their superiority of organisation and modernity  of arms and sail ensured that rebellious natives were kept in check. The colonialists also maintained a virtual monopoly of world resources and trade that America had to break into, to provide expansion of American industry. Muslim nations were largely not industrialised nor modernised to take on the colonialists.  The success of the colonialists kept any other territorial ambitions of other powers, such as Islam or Communism in check.  Even so, we forget the Islamic ambitions of the Ottoman Empire that started in 1299 and ended in 1922. This most successful and longest lasting Islamic Empire and sets the standards for all Islamic aspirants. But its significance is played down and unrecognised for what it was.
However, with the advent of WW II, the trump card was placed in the hands of Franklin D Roosevelt because Churchill needed America’s assistance to defeat Hitler. Roosevelt’s opportunity to play his Grand Strategy and break up all colonial control of trade and raw materials had to be forced on Churchill. This eventually resulted in the break up of the British colonial empire as well as all European colonial empires. The world was free of political, military, and economic control or manipulation. It was good for America, it was also good for Islam. The Islamic genie was the let out of the bottle and America will never be able to put it back, as there were now no checks and counter checks. Once again America did not have to foresight to know the consequences.[1]

“Violent extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority of Muslims. The attacks of September 11th, 2001 and the continued efforts of these extremists to engage in violence against civilians has led some in my country to view Islam as inevitably hostile not only to America and Western countries, but also to human rights. This has bred more fear and mistrust.”

I assume Obama meant to imply that there is a separate Muslim group known as “violent extremists.” As a Muslim he should know that ALL Muslims obey the commands of Allah as illustrated in the Koran and the Koran says:
Qur’an 5:51 “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends. They are but friends and protectors to each other.”

Qur’an:2:216 “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.” [Another translation reads:] “Warfare is ordained for you.”
These Qur’anic verses apply to ALL Muslims and not only to Jihadist Muslim Martyrs. Either Obama has conveniently overlooked these verses or he is using Taqiyya (dissimulations.) Or he is ignorant of Islam.

“So long as our relationship is defined by our differences, we will empower those who sow hatred rather than peace, and who promote conflict rather than the cooperation that can help all of our people achieve justice and prosperity. This cycle of suspicion and discord must end.

I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.

I do so recognizing that change cannot happen overnight. No single speech can eradicate years of mistrust, nor can I answer in the time that I have all the complex questions that brought us to this point. But I am convinced that in order to move forward, we must say openly the things we hold in our hearts, and that too often are said only behind closed doors. There must be a sustained effort to listen to each other; to learn from each other; to respect one another; and to seek common ground. As the Holy Koran tells us, “Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.” That is what I will try to do – to speak the truth as best I can, humbled by the task before us, and firm in my belief that the interests we share as human beings are far more powerful than the forces that drive us apart.”

Just the 2 Qur’anic verses above 5:51 and 2:216 is sufficient to prove that Islam does not seek co operation but seek to be the dominant religion, and will accept no other compromise. To compromise is to compromise the commands of Allah, and that would not be Islam.
His quote: “Be conscious of God (Allah) and speak always the truth.” This means to speak the truth to Allah, but never to infidels as 5:51 indicates.

“Part of this conviction is rooted in my own experience. I am a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the fall of dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.”

Here Obama betrays himself. Ask any Muslim whether the son of a Muslim is anything but a Muslim, and especially when he has been brought up for his first 14 years of life as a Muslim, in Muslim schools, taught my Muslim teachers and Imams.
Basically the doctrines in the Koran, the immutable word of Allah, decides the relationship of Muslims with the infidel(non-Muslims). No one else can alter that with rhetoric. And the Koran says: Qur’an:8:39 “Fight them(infidels) until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.” Qur’an:8:39 “So fight them (infidels) until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”
If he has since rejected Islam and adopted Christianity as he implies, then he is an Islamic APOSTATE, and despised by orthodox Muslims and should have the death penalty declared as a fatwa on him. For he is now a deserter of Islam, a foul crime in Islam.

” It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. “

In Obama’s eagerness to compliment the Muslim world, he has repeated some misconceptions of Islamic discoveries. It shows someone did not do their homework properly, a reflection of that personality.
(1) Algebra predates Islam by many centuries. [2]
(2) The magnetic compass, as everyone knows was a Chinese invention.[3]
(3) Writing was also pre-Islamic.[4]
(4) Shamanism predates Islamic medicine. [5]

” And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.

But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America. Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire.”

This statement is exemplary of ineptitude of Obama and some Americans, and  it is equivalent of only showing the pretty side of Islam and hide the real or cruel or aggressive side of Islam. In Islamic language this is known as Taqiyya, or dissimulation. This technique is already widely practised by Muslims to mislead or misinform non Muslims. Also, Muslims will always see the infidel as the enemy no matter how nicely they may pretend not to. It is commanded of the Koran to not trust the infidel, ever.

“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.

So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America. And I believe that America holds within her the truth that regardless of race, religion, or station in life, all of us share common aspirations – to live in peace and security; to get an education and to work with dignity; to love our families, our communities, and our God. These things we share. This is the hope of all humanity.”

Islam WILL BE America all right, given a little more time. Your First amendment has given the keys for the Islamisation of America and there is nothing in the Constitution that can change that at present. It is America’s hole in the dyke.

“The first issue that we have to confront is violent extremism in all of its forms.

In Ankara, I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam. We will, however, relentlessly confront violent extremists who pose a grave threat to our security. Because we reject the same thing that people of all faiths reject: the killing of innocent men, women, and children. And it is my first duty as President to protect the American people.”

This the fallacy. As far as Muslims are concerned there is “NO VIOLENT EXTREMISM” in Islam. But Islamic Jihad is another thing, and is a part of “orthodox Islam.”
Qur’an:2:216 “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.” [Another translation reads:] “Warfare is ordained for you.”
So if America is fighting Islamic Jihad, America is fighting a command of Allah, and thus it is fighting Islam. There are no two ways about it.

“And finally, just as America can never tolerate violence by extremists (orthodox Muslim Jihadists), we must never alter our principles. 9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our ideals. We are taking concrete actions to change course.”

That was precisely the purpose of 9/11:
Qur’an:8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

“So America will defend itself respectful of the sovereignty of nations and the rule of law. And we will do so in partnership with Muslim communities which are also threatened. The sooner the extremists (orthodox Islamic Jihadists) are isolated and unwelcome in Muslim communities, the sooner we will all be safer.”

That is fine if America wants to play by the rules. Mohammad has already declared, “War is Deceit.” I do not see that Muslims are bound to play by the rules.

“America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.”

With this declaration, America has declared that it is the mortal enemy of Islam because Islam will NEVER accept Israel and her rights to a homeland.

“I know there has been controversy about the promotion of democracy in recent years, and much of this controversy is connected to the war in Iraq. So let me be clear: no system of government can or should be imposed upon one nation by any other.”

Islamic ideology is that Islam will always be a Theocratic Autocracy i.e. the Dar as Islam and all other lands is Dar al Harb, to be conquered. It will never be any different.

“The fifth issue that we must address together is religious freedom.

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today. People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind, heart, and soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it is being challenged in many different ways.

Among some Muslims, there is a disturbing tendency to measure one’s own faith by the rejection of another’s. The richness of religious diversity must be upheld – whether it is for Maronites in Lebanon or the Copts in Egypt. And fault lines must be closed among Muslims as well, as the divisions between Sunni and Shia have led to tragic violence, particularly in Iraq.

Freedom of religion is central to the ability of peoples to live together.”

The only freedom in Islam is the dominance of Islam and all other non-Muslims will be Dhimmis in Islamic lands. If Obama is willing to accept this concept, then it will work.

“Indeed, faith should bring us together. That is why we are forging service projects in America that bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That is why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah’s Interfaith dialogue and Turkey’s leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. Around the world, we can turn dialogue into Interfaith service, so bridges between peoples lead to action – whether it is combating malaria in Africa, or providing relief after a natural disaster.”

This interfaith dialogue that Obama is talking about has been going on in Europe for the last 30 years and it gives the opportunity for the Islamists to brainwash the Europeans to the disadvantage of Eruopeans and for the advantage of Islam. I can only refer you to the Euro Arab Dialogue, EAD where you can assess it for yourselves. [6]

“On education, we will expand exchange programs, and increase scholarships, like the one that brought my father to America, while encouraging more Americans to study in Muslim communities. And we will match promising Muslim students with internships in America; invest in on-line learning for teachers and children around the world; and create a new online network, so a teenager in Kansas can communicate instantly with a teenager in Cairo.”

This is also part of the Euro Arab Dialogue programme as mentioned above and is a one way advantage for Islam.

“The Talmud tells us: “The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace.”

The Holy Bible tells us, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God’s vision. Now, that must be our work here on Earth.”

Mohammad abrogated all his compassionate verses with the  “Sword verse”
Qur’an:9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers (non-Muslims) wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Pope Benedict XVI said, “Islam will not change.”

Conclusions:

Just one sentence causes me concern and it is:

“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
Can a President of the United States of America be an apologist for Islam? Who is Obama in reality?
