New and startling information has been released concerning President Barack Obama’s spiritual life and his close relationship with ardent radical Islamists.
Mr. Obama, who rarely attends public church services, turns often to Muslims and Islamic sympathizers for prayer and spiritual and moral discussion.
The President, according to Daniel Burke, writing for the Washington D.C. based Religion News Service, prays on the phone with individuals from around the country “to frame his policies in moral terms.” One of Mr. Obama’s prayer partners is Rashad Hussain, an Islamic lawyer and critic of America’s alleged “terror prosecutions” of his fellow Muslims.
Mr. Obama has appointed Mr. Hussain to serve as his deputy associate counsel and special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations. The mission of the OIC is to safeguard and protect “the interests of the Muslim world,” should be of serious concern to Congress and the American public.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Mr. Hussein has a history of participating in events connected with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Chicago daily describes the Muslim Brotherhood as “the world’s most influential Islamic fundamentalist group” whose goal is to create Muslim states throughout the world.
In 1991, Mohamed Akram, a prominent leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, said the members of his radical organization “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” Mr. Hussein’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, date to his days at Yale Univerity’s Law School.
In announcing Mr. Hussein’s appointment as his deputy associate counsel, Mr. Obama proudly announced that Hussain is a Hafiz, someone who has completely memorized the Qur’an. The news that Mr. Obama regularly prays with Mr. Hussein verifies reports that the President prays to Allah.
Denis McDonough, a Roman Catholic who serves as deputy national security adviser and chief of staff of the National Security Council, also has been identified as one of the President’s prayer partners. This would give credence to Mr. Obama’s claim that he is a Christian save for the fact that Mr. McDonough says that he is “a crucial player” in solidifying the President’s ties to Islam in order to restore “moral authority” to America.THE LAST CRUSADE
