Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign

February 18, 2015

In the comment section of my previous post, Has Not God Made Foolish the Wisdom of the World, I had a brief conversation with my blogging friend Steve.

UPDATE 2/18/15 at 6:54 pm PT:

Lady Raven left a comment over at Steve’s Cry and Howl blog and shared the link to the original Daily Mail article and photo about last August’s U.S./ African Leader Summit in Washington D.C.:

Daily Mail.com

You will notice that the author wrote the following regarding 0Zero’s hand gesture:

“Finger wagging: President Barack Obama, front row third from left, points his finger upwards as he arrives for the official family photo at the US African Leaders Summit at the State Department in Washington.”

.

Yep…they didn’t know what that “finger gesture” REALLY meant!

Christine, there’s no doubt Obama is a stark raving Muslim. We just stay in denial.

Steve,

A commentator on Fox News helped to possibly “explain” why 0Zero sides with Iran (and wants to make a nuclear deal with them) while stating that IS/ISIS/ISIL is not really “Islamic.” The man claimed that 0Zero believes in the Shite side of Islam. Therefore, he rejects the Sunni side. The interview was on The Kelly File. I searched the Fox website for the video clip, but didn’t find it there. I do recall Megyn Kelly saying – at the end of the conversation – “well, that would explain a lot.”

Will search at You tube for the clip. Hopefully, it will be there.

I’ve suspected that all along Christine. It has been more than obvious that Obama is Shite. Check out the new post. It will be up in a few minutes.

 

So, I went to Steve’s blog at Cry and Howl.

 

Barack and the Muslim Gang Sign

 

Steve shared this photo and brief commentary from the American Thinker original post:

Is President Obama a Muslim?  A lot has been written about this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light.

It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of Islamic faith to dozens of African delegates.

??????????????????????

                         Barack Hussein Obama flashes the Muslim shahada to delegates of the US-African Leaders Conference in Washington DC in August 2014.

The Associated Press took this astonishing photo as the African dignitaries joined Obama, who hosted the event, in a State Department auditorium for a group photograph.  It was published in an article in Britain’s Daily Mail, and it was the only use ever of the photo.
The one-finger display is the distinctive Muslim gang sign: The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the digital phalange of the middle finger.  The remaining fingers are squeezed against the palm in order to highlight the extended forefinger.  The extended finger is symbolic of the one-God concept of Muhammad and is understood by all believers to be a symbolic shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith: There is but one God and Muhammad is his messenger.

Once I read the entire post over at American Thinker I literally felt sick to my stomach! I had just finished my coffee this morning and was about to have some breakfast, but my queasy feeling in my stomach won’t allow me to do so.

Go to American Thinker: Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign and read this stunning article!!!

The author states that 0Zero may have done this, “as a joke,” but with the way he is NOT handling the increasingly worldwide Islamic terrorist threat, as well as the list of pro-Muslim actions posted in my previous blog post, can anyone possibly believe that it was a joke? I certainly don’t!!!

Apparently, the Muslims there approved of 0Zero’s “sign.”

The Daily Mail editors did not understand what they were looking at. They captioned it “finger wagging” by Obama. But the African dignitaries understood, and a range of reactions can be detected among the ones who observed the gesture: amusement, surprise, curiosity, disapproval, contempt. Note the reactions of Abdelilah Berkirane, the prime minister of Morroco pictured just behind Obama’s left shoulder, and Ibrahim Boubacas Keita, the president of Mali in white garb and hat. They are Muslims through and through, and they are all smiles. They knew what Obama’s upright forefinger meant.

 

The reaction of Togo president Faure Gnassingbe, at the top row second to the left, is less approving. Through his face you can read the mind of this Sorbonne- and George Washington University educated leader. His mind is screaming, “You gotta be kidding!”

 

Gnassingbe’s country is squeezed between Benin and the Ivory Coast and is not far from Nigeria and its Boko Haram plague — perhaps a two-hour flight in a slow Cessna from Togo’s capital to the Nigerian capital, less than an hour in something faster. At the time of the Washington conference, Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau had just declared Borno State in northeastern Nigeria as the seat of his caliphate. Massacres of entire villages were taking place; only a few months earlier nearly three hundred girls were abducted from a Borno secondary school.

Togo has seven million people, 50 percent animists, 30 percent Christian. The remainder are Muslims, part of the umma. Gnassingbe and all other non-Muslims of Togo have reason to worry about radicalization of some of these members of the transtribal supertribe of Muhammad who reside among them. And so his look of disdain. “You gotta be kidding.”

TRULY AWFUL!!!

GOD HELP US MAKE IT THROUGH THE REST OF THIS ISLAMIC CREEP’S pResidency!

Yes. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is in control.

“Kind of Hoping to miss all this…”

While I completely understand the sentiment you express, I’d ask where’s your sense of Holy Adventure? The destruction of the Prince of the Power of the Air will of necessity mean the obliteration of this old sinful world. Sin’s Power must be burned and completely consumed. I take that to mean that everything tainted with it (meaning – everything there presently is) must be burned. 2 Peter 3:10 comes to mind. Even old John, in Revelation 22:20 had the courage to say: “He which testifieth these things sayeth, surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus.”

Max, I say this is an outstanding, fantastic time in which to live. The darker the earth gets, the better Heaven looks. Let’s not get wrapped up in the destruction and forget to focus on the New Heaven and the New Earth. God is GOOD. Every single minute

Deimie > Mike_W20 • 3 hours ago

If you’ve accepted Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for your sins, and believe that he rose on the third day, conquering death, you don’t have to fear Gods’ coming wrath. The coming Day of the Lord is for those who have rejected his son, Jesus. We all still struggle with our sinful nature while here in this flesh but Jesus died for our sins: past, present and future. God sees not us as we are but He sees us clothed in Jesus’ righteousness. May God give you comfort and peace today and always.

Amen!!!

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed God’s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). It’s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because it’s tainted by man’s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we can’t find on our own. It is God’s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a “post-truth” world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? It’s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. It’s what’s true for me—my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects God’s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have God’s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truth” (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, “The entirety of your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). When Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6), He wasn’t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesn’t change from person to person. It doesn’t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is “no one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].” This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
