My comments coming later. Enjoy!
- He used the word occupation when talking about Palestinians. I’ve never heard this from a President of America. Has anyone? (other than Jimmy Carter)
- He’s good. Reall good smooth talker.
- This is crazy, but Obama actually increased my iman, LOL.
- I’m so happy many ‘ulema were present there.
- What are they yelling in the audience?
It was okay. Nice smooth talk. Some positive points is that he recognizes the occupation of Palestine. He recognizes that the Qur’an as a book with peaceful messages by quoting it and using it in his lecture. He recongizes all the great Islamic contributions by great Muslim thinkers and inventors (who would be considered deviant by extremist Muslims with khawarij-like aqida).
He pissed me off when he started to praise Israel, but then he made me feel guilty because I stereotype Israelis and Jews in general a lot. May Allah forgive me. Shout out to all the peaceful and loving Jews out there that read this blog! I was also surprised he admitted that the spread of Democracy in the Muslim world was shady and it needs to change. Also surprised he actually mentioned Hamas in a somewhat non-negative light. Instead of calling them terrorists, he said they need to drop the violence and help the Palestinian people.
His Muslim blood was coming out with all those quotes from the Qur’an. One thing though, Obama needs some tajwid lessons.
We’ll see what God has planned for the entire world in the next 2-3 years. I pray for one that Muslim thugs die out and their gang mentality dies too.
Anyways, ultimately, the kuffar will never please the Muslims. Right now Muslims are killing each other, Muslim leaders are chasing the dunya and the Muslim scholars are discussing whether or not something is shirk, who’s deviant and their group is the saved sect. Welcome to dunya!
