Obama gives support to Ground Zero mosque during White House Ramadan feast

Islamic prayers every Friday in the Capitol building. Ramadan feast Friday night at the White House. Wasn’t building a shrine to conquering America mosque at Ground Zero supposed to be a local issue?

Ever the opportunist, Obama chose his Islamic feast with Muslims at the White House celebrating the month of jihad to endorse the pro-sharia, anti-American, refuse-to-call-Hamas-terrorists, deceiving, Islamist victory mosque. via At Ramadan dinner, Obama defends plans for Ground Zero mosque.

President Obama on Friday forcefully joined the national debate over construction of an Islamic complex near New York’s Ground Zero, telling guests at a White House dinner marking the holy month of Ramadan that opposing the project is at odds with American values.

“Let me be clear: as a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” Obama said, according to prepared remarks, at a White House iftar, the traditional breaking of the daily Ramadan fast.

That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he continued. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable.”

Obama expressed sympathy for the families of those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by al-Qaeda terrorists purporting to act in the name of Islam. But he told the gathering that included Muslim and other religious leaders that blocking the mosque, as some leading Republicans have angrily demanded, would undermine the country’s claim to respect the free practice of religious expression.

It’s not clear Rauf is abiding by local laws and ordinances now, as noted in our December post.

In a rare moment of truth, Obama (or whomever the actual author was) wrote in his memoir, “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” While he stands with them, and gives them billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars, he is stomping all over non-Muslims.

Update: Obama reaffirms his support for mosque at Ground Zero:

“I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there,” Obama continued. “I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about. And I think it’s very important as difficult as some of these issues are that we stay focused on who we are as a people and what our values are all about.”

Friday Obama stated his “personal” belief Rauf or any Muslim, has a right to build a mosque at Ground Zero. Saturday he reaffirmed his beliefs, cloaked in an American veneer – odd considering Obama refuses to abide by the Constitution written by America’s founding fathers. Not commenting on the “wisdom” of building a mosque at the site doesn’t change his personal or Presidential stance.

Update 2: While many were suggesting Obama flip-flopped, our assessment of his damage-control was correct:

Just to be clear, the president is not backing off in any way from the comments he made last night,” Burton said. “It is not his role as president to pass judgment on every local project. But it is his responsibility to stand up for the Constitutional principle of religious freedom and equal treatment for all Americans. What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that if a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque.”

Update 3: Check out the long list of Muslims (including prominent pro-sharia, terror-linked folks) who were expected to attend Obama’s Ramadan feast, from the White House website (below the fold):

  1. Indeed the enemy is within – what to do other than pray for strength and God’s Will be done and most definitely NOT give up…..

  2. There are no “good” moslems.

    Think about it.

    All moslems are connected inextricably to one another by koran.

    The radicals, by violence, strip the freedom from the “good moslems” to be good people who happen to be moslem.

    My good friend Afshinpour from Shiraz Persia wants nothing to do with violence. He cannot speak out against jihad or shariah law for fear of being killed himself.

    Get it? koran binds them all together so that the violent minority has the ultimate power under shariah law.

    Americans are in a fight and don’t even know it. shariah law is being established in america day-by-day.

    Mosques are coming to every city and town in my country. When the moslem population reaches 7% in any community, they begin to demand ‘rights” based on the freedoms enjoyed by us all. In the current political climate they will succeed.

    Are we so bound by the lie of political-correctness that we are rendered helpless?

    Watch two movies: Not Without My Daughter and The Stoning of Soryah M.

    Every member of congress needs to see the latter film.

    Stand and fight, America. The time is now.

    • Voted you down at the first sentence, blanket statements like this indicate ignorance of the highest order!

      I’m not Muslim, but I know plenty of Muslims who are good people. It’s wrong to judge all based on the actions of an extremist minority. You should know better!

  3. Of Course Obama would approve the Islamic terrorist training center in NY. He’s one of them. He has shown by many actions that he is a Moslem and this foreign political system is overtaking us because that’s what he is and that’s what he wants for America.
    IMO he was born in Kenya and that’s apparently his wife’s understanding as well because she has referred to Kenya as “Barack’s home country.” At this moment he is using our taxpayer dollars to support and help institute Sharia law in Kenya. We’re next, folks. He must be impeached.

  4. Obama has strange, serious father issues. His personal need to make peace with his absent father is clouding his judgment not of religion, but of a religio-political movement that seeks to replace secular Constitutional law with medieval Arabic jurisprudence.

    Obama and the left have a strange blind spot on this issue, reminiscent of Neville Chamberlain.

  5. And it should have remained a local—or in this case—a state (of New York) issue. I feel that Obama was wrong to weigh in on this; he should have stayed neutral…for me, that’s based on principle.

    He’s speaking from his office as President—and apparently didn’t learn from his mistake with the Cambridge cops.

  6. Obama personifies the muslim tenet of taquiya. He
    did so on the campaign trail and has continued its
    practice every single day since his election. Only
    one thing will get Americans off their asses. READ THE KORAN. This is the driving force behind our
    enemy, the nightmare of every American. No muslim is going to go against it. Apostasy will mean his death and if he’s cowed enough to bow to the extremists he’s no use to us. When was the last time you heard an American muslim come out on the side of his
    country ? Sedition is being preached daily in their
    places of worship and the FBI and the Department
    of Justice do nothing. People from those mosques
    many of American background of 2 generations
    carry their traitorous backsides to hellholes like
    yemen and somolia as well as pakistan to stand
    with their muslim brothers. The coward in the whitehouse is their sponsor. Watch your back and the back of every American infidel until they realize the danger they are in. There is still time but not much.
    Look at the UK’

  7. Christianity in America is is grave danger. Islamic strategy according to Koran is exactly copied by all nations, where Islam is mushrooming. It is now happening in U.S. UK, Europe, india and many far eastern island countries.

    Under 2% – they are mild, smiling, law-abiding and upholding the constituion of the country where they are living. Once muster enoug number, then start the strategy of aggrandisement, begin intimidating, kidnap and rape women, and kill men whereever encounered.

    When the people are terrorized, Islamic mission becomes clear and cleaner. This is what is happening in USA.UK and Europe and everywhere including India and Israel. But Christians liberal-secularists who cannot see things beyond their nose, so how any one can stop their assault on civilization.

    Everybody writes, talks and debates, but no indiviual or organizaion suggest how to counter this Islamic terror. If one does not stand up against the evil, it will trample upon you. But who will make the pussillaminous people, who live under fear of Islam, to realize and at least make a token of resistance, and let them know we would not anymore keep quiet under notions of moribund principles of love,non-violence, peace and harmony. Evil does not understand them. Evil must be resisted, fought and defeated, must be rooted out. But western political thoughts upholding liberty, freedom and equality has no power to end the evil empires of Islam or communism or even missionaryism of Christians. Only weapon they know is force with righteous action, what is called Dharma in Hinduism. But alas just like Christians everywhere, Hindus and Budhists have become slaves to the ideas of love non-violence and secularism, the weapons of the cowards. India won independence from British, but Pakistan, part of united India is already becoming slave to jihadists. Only tiny Isael is fighting and also had initial victory. That is also doomed to fail, because of Hosein Obama’s open support to Islam,who does not miss a single opportunity to glorify Islam, like a true MUSLIM as he claims. Obama must be defeated. The initiative must come from the U.S. we must raise a volunteer force of million each in the U.S. and India and start resisting Islam, peacefully, rightfylly and legally.
    Otherwise there is hardly any hope for peace. Accrding to Islam, there will be peace only when entire human kind embraces Islam.
    “It is clear all non-Muslims, thank God they are majority in the world, must unite and force them to observe norms of civilization teaching to live together like a family. Education is only the answer. But even here Muslims urge on teaching Islamic learning in Madrasas, Koranic schools. Muslims must join the mainstream societies of countries where they live. The popular Islamic Idea is that There is One God and He is Allah and Mohammed is his Messeger, last in the line, but perfect and never to manifest again. He is the ideal for mankind. So every man, women and child must follow his life,letters and words. It signifies any one living a life which is not patterned after Mohamm that any one who does not live according to Koran must die. So all Kafirs must be either converted to Islam or die. Muslims only have the hegemony on the resources of earth and after death of heaven. And there is no ideal of good or bad in Islam, ie. no moral or ethical conduct. Their conduct is how Mohammed acted and said. Entiere muslim jurisdication is based on his words. Every resources of the earth is for the pleasure of man. Naturally men enjoy during their life and after death will enjoy many times with more with 72 virgins and every conceivable manner of pleasure. This makes Islam irresistible for any man.

  8. Prince Barry was conveniently away from the white house for most Christian holidays, that way he wouldn’t have to celebrate at the white house. He is conveniently available not only for a rama- dama -ding-dong celebration at the white house but also to to wade waist deep into an issue on which he should keep his freakin’ mouth shut. But that was no surprise, I’m sure he had already whispered in Bloomberg et al’s ears what his intentions for the mosque might be.

    But alas, this man is willing to sell out “his” ( I’m not sure it ever was”) country & fellow Americans to appease his hurt feelings over an absent, uncaring MUSLIM father, and other offenses the poor darling endured. Sniff Sniff.

    Do not forget the numerous times he thumbed his nose at you when November rolls around. It’s time to send the narcissist in chief packing ( preferably to a muslim sh*thole).

    And it’s time to DEMAND proof of his birth etc. No one spends over a million dollars on lawyers to suppress their personal data unless there’s a good reason.

    I am livid.

  9. Hopefully America will finally see this as a wake up call and ensure Sheikh Obongo is a One Term Wonder.

    His support for this abomination is just one more step in his plan to turn the United States of America into the United Calliphate of Islamerica.

    Stand up for your country Americans, make sure he loses control of congress then vote him out in 2012. Only united people power can turn this around.

  10. If the ruling is that a “Islamic center” can be built on the tragic site where the majority of people killed were Christian and Jewish, then a Church and Synagogue should be built right across the street on around the same block.

  11. Im shocked!
    Obama’s daddy was muslim.His stepdaddy was a muslim.
    So why wouldn’t he be one.?
    He took the oath of office swearing on a bible to uphold the constitution. Would that be valid if the bible was meaningless? Would you swear on the koran to prove you weren’t lying? Could you swear on the “Adventures of Little Red Riding Hood” in a court of law.
    If Obama is a muslim swearing on the bible is meaningless., and could it be invalid?

  12. Obama may have sworn on the Bible initially but the Oath of Office was somehow not administered properly. Chief Justice Roberts administered the oath a second time without Obama using the Bible. So basically he swore an oath on nothing.

    This might please the anti-religious crowd but it is a part of the protocol when swearing an oath for the highest office in the land.

  13. I think we have wasted too much time already, giving Obama more time. We are closer to the end every day, and an election is not going to cure what is wrong. If we are as blind to what is going wrong with this country as we were in electing this traitor, we are doomed as the cause of our downfall. We deserve to be killed by the Muslims if we do not resist NOW. If this is truly Armageddon, and I believe it is, then GET IT ON. I will die fighting for what this country was when I was born gladly, before I wait for a natural death.

  14. I regret that Joe Biden would take the seat the president should be forced to vacate for his traitorous acts.

    As with ripped and ready, I have some friends that have been reduced to acquaintances because my trust in them has been compromised by their taqiyya and their tacit approval of jihad. If it gets as bad as it seems, I will not hesitate to drop the hammer.

  15. B.Hussein Obama’s hand on the Bible could always be interpreted ‘Taqiyya’ ,beautiful deception. Anyway,that is quite a list of attendees. I wish we could get that many (non liberal Christians) together at the White House. I thought this country was founded by Christians.

  17. This is not the first, and it won’t be the last, time imam Hussein obama ‘misspeaks’. I take these ‘gaffs’ as his real sentiments. I was going to write true, but I realized that this term has another meaning in the muslim lexicon. As it has been from the start, this is a citizen’s fight. America was founded on compromise and these folks do not compromise.


  19. Dear Readers, All Religious & antisocial people must know that ALMIGHTY GOD is the Creator of the
    Heaven & the earth. Islam originated by Holy Prophet Adam & spread through Holy Prophet Abraham,
    Holy Moses ,Holy Jesus & lastly Holy Prophet Mohammed. ONE ALMIGHTY GOD,ONE Universal Religion Islam. Any one submits to ALMIGHTY GOD & Bow down before HIM is a MUSLIM.
    All Holy Scriptures contain the same message:
    ALMIGHTY GOD has created the Universe & HE is the
    Mosques is a place of Worship. Its not the place of G.Bush Or Bin Laden.Bin laden was a Warlord of Bush to drive out Russian from Afghanistan.
    Bin Laden is not a leader of Muslim. He knows what he is doing. 9/11 was not creation of Muslims where hundred of Muslims died but no Jews. Why?
    President Barak Obama is a Rightful President supporting a peaceful Cause. Mosque is not a political Arena its the place for remembrance of ALMIGHTY GOD(ALLAH) who is the Lord of all universe & the Sole JUDGE of the day of Judgement.
    Read the Gospel of ST Barnabas who was a true disciple of Holy Jesus & find the truth.
    Scientists? What Scientist? Do they know what is their own Soul, they say world was created Billion years ago, They follow a conjecture & lead a life of physical
    dream ,but they will know after their death where their mockery take them to.
    Why they cannot save themselves from death, from old age, from sickness?
    GOD IS THE TRUTH.HE is One & Only, its not the world of Muslims alone, Hindus Vedas also give same witness. GOD is ONE Supreme.HE has no Image.HE created the Universe, But they are ignorents
    make Idols by their hands .
    Read Hindu Atharva Veda 13/4/20, Rig Veda 6/36/4,
    Yajur Veda 32/3. Thank you
    Thank You

  20. Hear you all who Belive & want to make peace with
    Peace loving Muslims .
    ” Jesus departed from Jerusalem …………..
    where upon the angel Gabriel having told him of the sedition which was beinning among the coomon people.He asked his disciples, what do men say of
    him. They said: Some say thou art Elijah,Jeremiah and other one the old prophets.
    Jesus Answered:”And ye,what say ye that I Am”?
    Peter answered” Thou Art Christ, son of God”
    Then Jesus with anger rebuked him and said” bbegone, depart from me,because thou art the devil and seekest to cause me offence”
    And He threatened to eleven “woe to you, if you ye believe this”
    “Peter wept and said, I have spoken foolishly,:beseech GOD that HE pardon me”
    Holy Jesus was a prophet & not the son of GOD.
    ” This verse Trinity is a forgery from the revised version development of later date than the Bible”
    W P.Ball & G.W Foote .

    Thomas Jefferson ,third President of UNSA called the trinity a jargon of Arithmatic.
    So please learn about Islam. Thanks

  21. my God..i can’t believe the ignorance of so many! I’m an american woman married to a muslim. I guess if they can’t build a mosque, then they should allow no churches! Remember, it was a christian responsible for the oklahoma city bombing but you hear nothing of that..what about the christian crusades? My point is this: you have extremists in EVERY religion and it’s unfair and unfortunate that there is such generalizations..in tunisia, it’s illegal to beat your wife..there is no stoning or lashing..you’d be put in prison..but guess what?? They are a muslim country..perhaps some of you need to get off the couch and learn more about what is going on and stop believing all the media hype??? It’s disgusting really..there is bad everywhere..i’m not muslim but my husband is and the muslims I know are some of the kindest people I have ever met

  22. Stooopid America. 19 devout (devout not terrorists) muslims take down the twin towers and you build a shrine to honour them at ground zero. There is no radical islam . Its just islam.

    • Please be specific when you say “stupid” Americans – We are not all in the same boat and anyone for Islam is NOT an American in the true meaning of the word and answer me this: what is the difference between “it’s just Islam” and “there is no radical Islam” and “devout not terriosts.”
