“I don’t think that’s in any way going to be something to worry about. I myself am not speaking for him. But we are here, we love people in general. People love us. I myself love people who love me. You know, so, everything’s mutual. I can’t go [sic] in terms of Israel and Kenya and America, and so forth, you know, but based on what else I’ve heard him say and what I know of him as an individual, I don’t think Israel should worry too much, you know, about the connection. Because, I am a Muslim myself, and I don’t think that my being a Muslim has got anything to do with my brother being the President of the United States.”
This was a radio interview with an Israeli or Palestinian station. Not sure which station, but ABC News got it from the Israeli Army Radio. The reason I think it could be a Palestinian one is that at the end of the interview he says “Asalamualykum”, acknowledging he was being interviewed by a Musim. I don’t think Israeli stations have Muslims on them so this is why I assume it might have been a Palestinian one. Besides that point, I think Malik was right to say what he said. It doesn’t matter if Barack Obama’s half brother is a Muslim.
It’s really amazing how God has planned all this out and there is a strong possibility that the next President of the United States will have a Muslim lineage. God is the best of all planners.
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:
The Elections, especially the Democratic primary between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has completely dominated the news. The earthquake in China and the Tsunami in Myanmar (Burma) has also been the headlines of the mainstream media.
I haven’t heard or read anything major regarding the unjust war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Islam haters are no focusing their attention on promoting John McCain (or Hillary Clinton) and trying to attack Barack Obama (and sometimes Clinton as well).
If you know anyone in Texas or Ohio, make sure to tell them to vote for Obama on Tuesday March 4. Barack Obama continues to impress me with his words. Finally someone gets real with the current educational system and goes to the root of the problem: parenting. Parents need to turn off the TV! Start spending time with their children. This also goes to Muslim parents too. Muslim children are also facing the same issues as any other typical American child. They watch crappy television shows on Nickelodeon, Disney Channel or Cartoon Network. Seriously, have you ever watched shows like Hannah Montana. It’s ridiculous! Children shows have gone far as accepting dating and homosexuality. They’ve also completely removed religion from it all. In fact, from watching TV with some of my nephews and nieces, I’ve seen they have less cartoons and more real-life drama shows for children. It’s like soap operas but for children.
What happened to the amazing cartoons when I was growing up like Duck Tales, Captain Planet, Tiny Toons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the original X-Men, the original Batman, Batman beyond, Animaniacs, Tales Spin, Pinky and the Brain, Rugrats, Inspector Gadget and the rest of the 90s/80s cartoons.
“I’ve seen how politics can be used to make us afraid of each other and how we turn on each other. How fear can cloud our judgement. And Suddenly we start scapegoating gay people or immigrants or people who don’t look like us or Muslims, because our own lives aren’t going well.”
