Like his predecessor in the White House, Obama has difficulty with naming Islam as Western Civilizationâ€™s millennial enemy. That presents a problem in leadership, namely the inability (or refusal) to focus the nationâ€™s attention on the stubbornness of Islamic jihad that seeks to crush freedom and institute a worldwide sharia state.
Anyway, Asia-phiilic Obama abjured religious diversity while touring India,Â visiting only an Islamic monument, as noted in Jihadwatch:
Obama visiting Muslim shrine in India â€” no plans to visit Hindu, Buddhist, or other shrinesHumayanâ€™s Tomb is very nice looking architecturally, no question:
Obama is visiting Humayanâ€™s Tomb. Nasir ud-din Muhammad Humayun was a sixteenth-century Mughal emperor, whose empire encompassed modern-day Pakistan, Afghanistan, and parts of northern India.
He is visiting, in other words, a Muslim shrine. He has no plans to visit any holy places of the Sikhs (such as the Golden Temple, Amritsar), or any Hindu holy places, Buddhist holy places, or Jain holy places. Nor does he plan to visit Nariman house, the Chabad house in Mumbai that was the chief target of the jihad mass-murderers who killed 173 people in November 2008.
Once again, Obama manifests a solicitude for Islam that he wouldnâ€™t dream of extending to other faiths.
Did I mention that Obama has a fondness for the â€?Religion of Peaceâ€??
Barack Obama joined Muslim prayers at school, teacher says, The Australian, November 8, 2010
The US Presidentâ€™s former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama â€“ who was known as â€?Barryâ€? when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta â€“ studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Ann Dunham, a Catholic.
The teacherâ€™s recollections will add to speculation about Mr Obamaâ€™s links to Islam during his much-anticipated visit to Indonesia, the worldâ€™s most populous Muslim nation, as part of his ten-day tour of Asia.
His middle name, Hussein, and the fact that his stepfather was a Muslim, have combined to perpetuate rumours about Mr Obamaâ€™s religious leanings. The number of Americans who think that he is a Muslim has grown since his inauguration to one in five.
