A recent poll by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 83% of Americans know a little or nothing at all about the religious beliefs and practices of Muslims. Our president took the opportunity last week to mis-educate them.
In the course of a 48-minute speech, Barack Hussein Obama whitewashed Islam’s dark history, sugarcoated its violent texts and rewrote America’s founding as one embracing Islam — all to mainstream Islam and pander to Muslim voters ahead of the presidential election.
The media described Imam Obama’s sermon, delivered from the musallah of a Baltimore mosque with a long track record of preaching hate and supporting terrorism, as a “touching” tribute to tolerance. But in truth, the speech was a tissue of lies.
Obama mouthed no fewer than 20 flagrant falsehoods during his 5,000-word speech, including: “For more than 1,000 years, people have been drawn to Islam’s message of peace. And the very word itself, Islam, comes from salam — peace.”
In fact, Islam means “submission,” a very different matter. Submitting to Allah and obtaining submission from others, if necessary by force, is the great commission of Islam. Peace, or salam, is achieved when the world submits to Allah’s laws.
OBAMA: “Islam prohibits terrorism, for the Quran says whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.”
FACT: The Quranic verse the president quotes — 5:32 — actually condones killing those who “murder” Muslims, “wage war against Allah” or spread “mischief in the land.” Mischief is defined as “treason against Allah,” and the very next verse — 5:33 — calls for guilty infidels to be beheaded. Obama glosses over all of this in his edited version.Read the rest of this Paul Sperry op-ed HERE.
