Syria Reveals Rise of Islam In America


From Ow.Ly TamiJ
Late August 2013, between 9% and 15% of Americans support U.S. intervention in the Syrian Civil war. Attacking Syria in retaliation for using chemical weapons on civilians does not seem to ring true since more than 100,000 people have died in that civil war. Syria is a situation exclusively handled by Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

Doo Doo EconomicsScratching Post, Liberator TodayCanto Talk, Beers With Demo, Word Warrior and many of my tea party compatriots at the San Diego Local Order of Bloggers oppose war in Syria. There are very few social issues on which Americans unanimously agree, but this is one. America spent blood and treasure fighting al-Qaeda, we do not want to become al-Qaeda's air force after arming them in violation of international law.

As a refresher, al-Qaeda are Sunni Islamic extremists. Here is video of Syrian al-Nusra (al- Qaeda) rebels executing Shia, Alawite, truck drivers due to their religion. The battle for Islamic control between Sunni and Shia is far beyond the scope of a blog post. However, something happened on Twitter which shocked America. We need to closely review the fact that Sunni, Muslim Brotherhood, front man Luis Farrakhan seems to have come out AGAINST an attack on Syria.

To put this in context: Many Americans believe President Obama is Muslim. If true, would he be Shia or Sunni? From controversial blogger Lame Cherry:
What requires understanding in this is Kenyans are Sunni Muslims who Obama is born from. Indonesians are Sunni Muslims who Obama was adopted into. Malcolm Little or X was a convert to Sunni Islam who Obama learned to be black from according to David Remnick. Louis Farrakhan or Louis Eugene Walcott, who Obama had Walcott's followers intimidate reporters in Chicago moved the Nation of Islam Mooselums closer to Sunni theology.
Barack Obama Soetoro was financed by Saudi Sunni Islam, the same sects as Sheik bin Laden, for his schooling.
So to answer the question as to which branch of Islam that Obama's loyalties lay, the answer is he is a Sunni Muslim
In addition to the Lame Cherry statement, President Obama supported the "Arab Spring" in Egypt to the benefit of The Muslim Brotherhood. When the Brotherhood was ousted, the president spoke out against the regime change in the face of Christians being slaughtered. In Benghazi, the president armed al-Qaeda, the palestinians, Sunni Iraqi insurgents and the country of Libya came within a few votes of Muslim Brotherhood control. Ambassador Stevens' work in Libya strengthened the opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood, he is now dead.

Why would Sunni Islamists oppose the use of American military power to gain al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood control of Syria? Is it coincidence that President Obama reconsidered his position and threw the decision to Congress, or was he just itching to get back to playing golf? The best that we can do is summarize what was said by Farrakhan in video and on Twitter. (Click links for raw info.)

Your point of view on this matter is very helpful, so here is my "reporter" style tweet to start:

Here is Luis Farrakhan advertising his speech:
The video sermon is about 1.5 hours. We reviewed it in all of its disjointed glory. The closest mirror-image allegory is America's progressive-left opposing President George W. "Bush's War", but remaining silent when President Obama exceeds "W"'s imperial presidency at every turn. As Silvio Canto puts it, "  The mask is off: They hated Bush, not war."

Farrakhan insinuates on Obama
It could be that President Obama is "not Muslim enough" for Minister Farrakhan, or maybe he is viewed as an "apostate" or as "not a good Muslim" by anti-Obama Islamic leaders. Maybe it is simply a power struggle. Maybe the Alex Jones accusations that President Obama assumed control of al-Qaeda after killing Osama Bin Laden strikes some fear in Farrakhan. In this power struggle, is President Obama the moderate Muslim?

Here are a few #Farrakhan "peaceful" reactions from Twitter. Some seem to be threats to the President:
By contrast, the tea party is the "party of peace." Moreover, that this trended in the United States twittersphere is a shock. Doo Doo Economics is all over twitter and this is the first such American Islamic "pop-culture" trend noticed.

We appreciate your help in getting to the bottom of the question, "Is Islam rising in America?"

Glenn Beck, from my viewing, would answer "YES." What do you say?

I'm coming to see Obama as an Ivy League faculty lounge Muslim. He's not the kind who prays or keeps the rules in his life, he's the kind that looks upon them like the progs see the American Indians - a proud people full of ancient wisdom. It's an ignorant sort of reverence and respect.
