The End - 2000 to 2009

The Future of America is with Barack Obama

Barack Hussein Obama is the popular candidate amongst the general population under the age of 35 in America. From social networking sites like Facebook.com, Digg.com, and Reddit.com, you will see litereally hundreds of thousands of people supporting Barack Obama, while only thousands support Hillary Clinton and maybe a few hundred supporting John McCain.

Let me break it down to you in numbers just to prove my point:

Facebook Friends:

  1. Barack Obama has 882, 733 friends on his facebook profile.
  2. Hillary Clinton has 159, 281 friends on her facebook profile.
  3. John McCain has 135, 362 friends on his facebook profile.

YouTube Subscribers:

  1. Barack Obama has 52, 616 subscribers on his YouTube page.
  2. Hillary Clinton has 13, 852 subscribers on her YouTube page.
  3. John McCain has 5, 117 subscribers on his YouTube page.

MySpace Friends:

  1. Barack Obama has 382, 377 friends on his MySpace.
  2. Hillary Clinton has 197, 450 friends on her MySpace.
  3. John McCain has 53, 435 friends on his MySpace.

Digg Popularity (Digg the Candidates):

  1. 18, 159 people dugg Barack Obama
  2. 2, 197 people dugg Hillary Clinton
  3. 1, 804 people dugg John McCain

From the above statistics taken as of 6/4/08 at 11:40 AM, we can see that the majority of the American youth are Democratic.  The majority of these Democrats support Barack Obama.

Why are the young Americans, like myself, supporting Barack Obama?

Obama is the first President to attract so many young American voters to come out and participate in the Democratic primaries. Honestly, before this election, I did not know a single thing about primaries. I didn’t even know they existed. I thought everyone voted during the Presidential elections. Not only did he break history with that but he is the first presidential candidate to attain massive amount of less then $100 donors via the Internet. Who uses the Internet most out of any age group in America? The youth.

Now as a young Muslim American, Obama is clearly the person to vote for. John McCain is very clear on his position on Islam, his position on Iraq and Afghanistan. You know Obama is the right choice when the Zionist Israeli Jews don’t support him. In fact Clinton is the favorite amongst the Jews in America, but yet even with them, Barack Obama will most likely seal the deal and become the Democractic nominee.

The Future for young Muslim Americans?

Only God knows what will happen, but we have the choices in our hands.  We can make a difference starting off locally and bringing about changes for the better.  Whether its within the Islamic centers or working within your local government.  We as young Muslim Americans need to step up and do our part living in this American society.  The overwhelming majority of us were born in this country and we have yet to claim our part in society.  The Jewish Americans have done this.  The Irish Americans.  The Italian Americans.  And so on.  Where are the Muslim Americans at?  We are starting but there are plenty of us sleeping and dozing off to the same salafi-sufi, shia-sunni, my aqidah-your aqidah, etc. agendas.  Not that those aspects of our life are unimportant but we should share the energy with positive work for the betterment of the society our children are going to live in.

May Allah (swt) guide us all, protect us all and protect the innocent Muslims suffering around the world.
May Allah (swt) give the Muslim American ummah the power, the wisdom, the knowledge and the iman to keep this deen strong and implement justice that will spread throughout the world.  Ameen!

      Man, I gotta say–it feels reall satisfying to see a colored man in that position. Even more satisfying to see him struggle and come out on top.

      Young people better get out there and vote. Then there might actually be a chance to out number all those republicans and swing voters who don’t like people like Obama

    7. Nihal Khan June 4th, 2008 at 7:42 pm

      Obama is a new start…InshaAllah he will help the Muslim Community of America out in a big way….

      …but…

      Today he said that Jerusalem should stay as Israel’s undivided capital :(

      Read and reconsider. I think Obama is a sleaze ball sucking up to those Israeli dogs the same way all the scum in Wash. DC do

      Within HOURS of winning the nomination he’s gong all out to prove who his true masters. He’s an Oreo if I ever saw one.

      I have to admit I was impressed by him initially and he may be sliiiiiightly better than the others but I seriously am unsure if he’s going to be good for Muslims.

      an excerpt

      “Hours after securing his party’s nomination, Obama told the influential annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Council (Aipac) on Wednesday that rumours and suggestions he is unfriendly to Israel and to Jewish interests are unfounded.

      Obama, the first African-American projected to win the presidential nomination for a major US political party, said that Jerusalem must remain the “undivided” capital of Israel.”

      end.

      I mean HELLOOOO I see many red flags going up here.

      Lets face it, America is terminally ill, Israel is the disease and nothing Obama says or does will same America. All empires fall, evil one’s fall sooner.

    10. MR June 4th, 2008 at 10:39 pm

      Every Presidential candidate must say they support Israel in order to become President. That is a given. AIPAC is strong. Really strong. If you don’t get on their good side or attempt to, then you won’t win. This is the reality of America. So every candidate will always say they support Israel. Some don’t but many do.

      Even if Obama says he supports Israel, Jews, especially Zionists, don’t like Obama. Why? He wants to meet with Iran. He wants to leave Iraq. He wants to focus on America instead of Israel and he wants to stop making enemies of America.

      So I’m still praying that Allah will guide Obama to the truth.

      The majority of the Jewish American voters will most likely vote for McCain, becuase many are still racist towards minorities and they just don’t what the next President of the USA to have a Muslim sounding name.

    11. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 12:14 am

      Get over Israel and Jewish Americans. Of course he’s not going to be anti-Israel.

      And why even care about who most Jews would vote for when they’re not even 3% of the population. I’d worry much more about the ton of red necks out there.

      Any way, at least Obama has some chance.

    12. sak June 5th, 2008 at 1:20 am

      MR, I don’t have specific numbers, but usually Jewish Americans vote Democratic. Speaking of rednecks, the reason its critical to support Israel in american politics, aside from AIPAC and the jewish vote, is because most evangelical Christians are ardent Israel supporters due to a doctrinal belief in the maintenance of a Jewish state. As far as Obama’s making these comments hours after he won the nomination, that is merely a coincidence, Clinton actually spoke right after him and McCain spoke a few days ago. Finally, when looking at the Jerusalem issue, its important to keep in mind that Obama is a politician. Yes hes fresh, hes uplifting, hes calling for change, but its expecting too much to think that he will come in and change everything (despite his slogan). All I am hoping for is someone who has a more balanced and logical view of the world and I think thats the best we can hope for with Obama.

    13. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 12:38 pm

      Christianity has the world by the balls.

    14. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 12:41 pm

      oops.. i was about to say it’s time to stay on topic.

      I just hope the democrats don’t shoot themselves in the foot again with their choice of candidates.

    15. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 12:55 pm

      I was just thinking though. The American Jews who vote Republican are usually the orthodox close-knit “racist” ones in new york. (oh wait, i thought they are anti-zionist 😀 ) In addition to the small sect of anti-zionist orthodox Jews, the Jews that vote democrat are a large group. They’re the super large secular Jewish population in newyork, florida and California. Some who vote Republican may do so for other reasons. Like my uncle, who doesn’t give a damn about world politics or Israel, but in the past he liked republicans because he used to make a lot of money. Now he’s a little smarter and doesn’t vote at all. lol

    16. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 1:00 pm

      i meant to say reform .. not secular

      but both could apply to certain degrees when it’s not always a matter of religion but cultural identity instead

    17. Abu Noor Al-Irlandee June 5th, 2008 at 1:36 pm

      MR,

      The problem is that you claimed in you post that Obama was opposed by Zionists on the same day that the most poweful pro-Zionist lobby was giving him rousing ovations. You say we know McCain’s position on Afghanistan, but do you know Obama’s? It is no different than McCain’s. In fact, his complaint about Iraq is that we should have concentrated more on killing Muslims in Afghanistan instead of being distracted by Iraq.

      Indeed we can pray for Allaah to guide Obama to the truth, but a study of his history will indicate that as he has ascended higher in politics he’s gotten further from the truth.

      At a time when are brothers and sisters are suffering from an illegal siege of Gaza and Desmond Tutu was speaking out against it….Barack Obama was telling AIPAC that he would stand by Israel no matter what it did to the Palestinians. What kind of morality is that?

      I am in no way saying that McCain or Clinton are better (they are not) but we cannot ignore such issues when we are discussing Obama or minimize them.

      Allaah knows best.

    18. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 3:02 pm

      The U.S Government is not very moral, so it makes sense that some of it’s allies aren’t either. All candidates know they need to go along with it. This should be a surprise to no one.

    19. MR June 5th, 2008 at 3:38 pm

      Abu Noor Al-Irlandee – Do you honestly think America wills top killing Muslims because Bush is leaving? I don’t.

      My point is clear: Obama > Clinton > McCain. America will continue to kill around the world no matter who becomes President. This is just how this country is. The majority of Americans do not like Muslim countries and their leaders. They don’t like Iran, Palestine, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.

      Allah even said this in the Qur’an that they will hate us no matter what.

      All I am saying is that Barack Obama wants to end the genocide (which is sadly done by Muslims) in Darfur. That’s positive to me. He wants to leave Iraq. That’s positive to me.

      He’s more positive than the other candidates.

    20. MR June 5th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

      Also check this out here. Obama and the DNC will no longer take donations from lobyyists and PACs, which mains AIPAC can’t donate to Obama and the DNC (Democratic National Committee). The same goes for all the other lobyying organizations and groups in DC.

      This means Obama will not have to bow down to them.

      Alhamdulillah this is another good step he is taking. Although it’s kind of bad for any Muslim lobbying groups, but I doubt they had any influence at all.

    21. Abu Noor Al-Irlandee June 5th, 2008 at 4:29 pm

      If it means he doesn’t have to bow down to AIPAC, then how come he just came from bowing down to AIPAC — that doesn’t make any sense.

      I don’t want to go back and forth with you, bro, the arguments are old and tired. But I hope I never get used to see Muslims supporting people who they admit will kill our brothers and sisters and who don’t care or have the slightest bit of respect for us.

      Allaah knows best.

    22. MR June 5th, 2008 at 4:56 pm

      The DNC and Obama announced it today. He spoke to AIPAC two days ago. AIPAC can’t donate to Obama and basically “buy” policies with his party. They still have power through lobbying Congress and the Senate.

      That’s what that means. We’re not going back and forth. I agree with you. Obama will most likely still end up having Muslim blood. But from the big picture, he’s the “lesser of the evils”.

      Plus, he’s black! That’s just awesome if he becomes President.

    23. The other Dave June 5th, 2008 at 5:48 pm

      A lot of politicians want to leave Iraq. Of course, we already know there will not be any immediate withdrawal. Who knows when exactly. So yeah, more people will die over there.

    24. Salam June 5th, 2008 at 7:16 pm

      Assalamu Alaikum,

      We all have to realize that Muslims are not liked. You simply cannot have a “potential” US president (especially with a name like Barak Hussein Obama) showing overly outward love for Muslims. This is plain stupidity.

      We as Muslims are also missing part of the big picture. A BLACK MAN IS A POTENTIAL US PRESIDENT. THIS IS HUGE!

      We also have to realize that no one is going to save Palestine except for Muslims. We know that Palestine will be liberated 3 times in history (2 already passed with the Caliph Umar and Salahudeen, the next & final one will be with the Mehdi & Prophet Isa). In the meanwhile, most Palestinians living in the West do not practice Islam (I know A LOT OF THEM). Even in Palestine, a Shaykh visited Palestine many years ago, and “rarely” found a hafidh of the Quran! Does this mean they deserve punishment? No, but only until we have some “moral” compass will we gain success.

      We also know that Obama spent his youth in Muslim countries, he has two Muslim fathers, do you not think deep down in his heart he has a sensitivity there? In the time of the Prophet, the Abysinnian King, Najashi, hid his iman b/c he was in power. Some Ulama took from this that if someone in power converts to Islam, he can hide it if the there is more harm than good, and Allah knows best. We can always hope, that this “could” be a reality for the most powerful person in the world, the potential US president, Barak Obama, Insha Allah.

      Wasalam

    25. NOBAMA June 16th, 2008 at 6:29 pm

      this is straight from Obama’s website:

      On Israel
      -Ensure a Strong U.S.-Israel Partnership:Barack Obama strongly supports the U.S.-Israel relationship, believes that our first and incontrovertible commitment in the Middle East must be to the security of Israel, America’s strongest ally in the Middle East. Obama supports this closeness, stating that that the United States would never distance itself from Israel.

      -Support Israel’s Right to Self Defense:During the July 2006 Lebanon war, Barack Obama stood up strongly for Israel’s right to defend itself from Hezbollah raids and rocket attacks, cosponsoring a Senate resolution against Iran and Syria’s involvement in the war, and insisting that Israel should not be pressured into a ceasefire that did not deal with the threat of Hezbollah missiles. He believes strongly in Israel’s right to protect its citizens.

      -Support Foreign Assistance to Israel:Barack Obama has consistently supported foreign assistance to Israel. ****He defends and supports the annual foreign aid package that involves both military and economic assistance to Israel and has advocated increased foreign aid budgets to ensure that these funding priorities are met. He has called for continuing U.S. cooperation with Israel in the development of missile defense systems. ***

      plus, all the people saying that its great that he’s black? if you vote just because the color of someones skin, it feels like we’re moving back in time to before the civil rights movement.
      that shouldnt even come into play when deciding who to vote for.

      that being said, i think every option for the presidential election is bad.
      there is no lesser evil, and may allah help the muslims everywhere around the world from anyone that becomes the president in this country.

      p.s. voting isnt fard or even sunnah when the country isnt ruled by islamic law.
