I received an email yesterday inciting all non-Muslims that Obama is Pro-Islam and that he prays with Muslims. This sender tries to indicate that Obama is Pro-Islam and since Islam is unfortunately viewed by many as a terrorist religion, Obama may be a Pro-Terrorist! Is Obama attempting to declare USA as an Islamic Nation?

Before I give my personal view on this controversial and offending subject, please read this email……

—————————————————————————

THE CONTROVERSIAL EMAIL

“1952 President Truman Established one day a year as a “National Day of Prayer.”
In 1988 President Reagan Designated the First Thursday in May of each year as
The National Day of Prayer.
In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA “Was no longer a Christian Nation.”
This year President Obama Canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony
At the White House under the ruse of “not wanting to offend anyone”
BUT… On September 25, 2009 From 4 AM until 7 PM, A National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION Was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House.
There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. that day.

HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS! I guess it Doesn’t matter If  ”Christians” Are  offended  by this  event – We  obviously Don’t  count  as “anyone” Anymore.”

OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM

As a true and devoted Christian and my entire family are very much involved in our Church activities at St. Simon Catholic Church, I was traumatized by this email. After I counted to 100 and calmed down, I began to search for ways to counter-attack this felonious email.   Obama and his family are devoted and tolerant Christians and I firmly believe that Obama is in actual fact expressing his real intention truthfully when he said about “not wanting to offend anyone”.   The reasons are mentioned below.

OBAMA SETS RECORD STRAIGHT
Obama tried to set the record straight from an attack circulating widely on the Internet that is designed to play into prejudices against Muslims and fears of terrorism.

“I’ve been to the same church _ the same Christian church _ for almost 20 years,” Obama said, stressing the word Christian and drawing cheers from the faithful in reply. “I was sworn in with my hand on the family Bible. Whenever I’m in the United States Senate, I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. So if you get some silly e-mail … send it back to whoever sent it and tell them this is all crazy. Educate.”

Obama is referring to a debunked chain e-mail circulating widely on the Internet that suggests he is hiding his Islamic roots and may be a terrorist in disguise. (Source)

Obama is NOT a Muslim and he is NOT on the “side of Islam”.  What he is saying is that he is NOT anti-Islam. He is NOT siding Islam or Christianity.   As a responsible leader, he remains neutral and pro every religion.

When Barrack Obama made a return visit to the Great Buddha statue in Japan, does this mean that he is anti-Christian and that he is converting to Buddhism?


When Obama said that Myanmar’s democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, “is a hero of mine”, does this mean that Obama is joining Suu Kyi’s National League?

When Obama met the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kiril, the second day of his three-day visit to the Russian capital does this mean that he is converting?

I don’t think so.  He is merely expressing his point of view and at the same time, developing goodwill and support worldwide for the American people.

USA IS A MULTI-RACIAL COUNTRY
Let us now take a closer look at today’s USA.  It has over 311 million people of various nationalities and religions.  In other words, USA is a multi-racial country.  To declare USA as a Christianity country, either we like it or not, creates objections and resentment among the non-Christians.     I personally feel that countries which accommodate high percentage of mixed races and religions should refrain from proclaiming a One Religion decree.

THE CATASTROPHIC “BUSH WAR”

Why is Obama not anti-Islam? After the 911 incident, George Bush vowed to avenge the death of the American people.  So the “Bush War”, as I like to call it, against the offenders began.  But the well-equipped adversary retaliates heavily and the result is catastrophic!  We witness the death of more American soldiers and innocent American citizens as well as thousands of innocent men, women and children from the war-ridden countries.  Did Bush win the war? Has he created a safe haven and strengthen the respect of the American people worldwide? I don’t think so!  Revenge is sweet but the American people pay dearly for it.  Bush went for tit-for-tat rampage and he fell flat on his face!  I suppose some of you fully support Bush’s move and I respect you for that. But the sweet vengeance has turned excruciating sour and thousands of innocent people have suffered dearly from it. Very sad indeed.

“But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Matthew 5:39)

Bush resisted the “evil person” and as a result he awoke many sleeping giants who have been looking for excuses to declare war on the “infidels”.

US President George W Bush

Please don’t get me wrong.  I have high respects for George Walker Bush as a President.  He was a very valuable asset to USA and to most countries.  Given the tense position he was in where most Americans demanded justice, he chose to avenge rather than taking diplomatic actions to find the best non-bloodshed solutions.  He did what he thought was right and made tough decisions.   If I were in his shoes, I might also be inclined to do the same but it was definitely a wrong and fatal decision.  If someone enters your house and kills your son, you don’t ask your family to go and buy a gun, look for him and shoot him dead!  If you do, you are widely exposing and endangering their lives.   The best logical way for you to do is to protect and strengthen the security of your house so that the murderer is not able to re-enter your house and kill your other children.   And  go through the proper judicial system to prosecute him.

IF YOU CANNOT BEAT THEM, JOIN THEM
After witnessing the disparaging after-effect of Bush’s failed strategy to paralyze the Muslim World, Obama takes a different approach.  He is using a “if you cannot beat them, join them” peaceful strategy.  “Join them” does not mean convert to Islam and fight side by side with them.  It literally means to listen, persevere and understand them.  And his noble move has caught the Muslims’ attention of him as being a fair and honorable leader.  Obama’s move may likely alter the Muslims perspective of the American people as being humble and non-violent as their leader.  They may conclude that it is not the American citizens who are waging war against them but their Government.  They are just innocent bystanders who disagree with the Bush administration but are powerless to prevent the countless offensive attacks.  I strongly feel that Obama’s action is indeed a positive move in gradually creating a safe haven and strengthen the respect of the American people worldwide, not only by the Muslims but by other nationalities as well.

THE SNAKE THAT TURNED INTO A LAMB
When I was a young boy of 6 years old back in 1956, I found a small green snake among the branches of the Guava tree at the side of our house in the Kepayan Police Headquarters compound. I was terrified at first as I learned from school that many species of snakes are lethal.  I watched it from a distance and it stared at me but didn’t move.  The next day it was still hiding among the branches. I moved closer and rubbed its back with a long small stick and it retaliated. I suppose that guy understood that I meant no harm and soon calmed down and enjoyed my company. As the days went by, I managed to touch it and it twirled its body gently around my arm.

The immediate reaction of most people is to kill the snake without first studying and understanding it.  We tend to believe and react accordingly to what other people tell us without determining our own conclusion.  You kill the snake because you learn that most snakes are deadly but this particular snake may not be and only attack if offended.  Barrack Obama who understands the Muslims during his tenure in Indonesia and studying for 2 years in a Muslim school has chosen to tackle the problem using a positive diplomatic approach.

EYE-FOR-AN-EYE IS NEVER THE ANSWER
Let us take a deeper look at blood feud or vendetta.  It is a fight between groups of people, families or clans. The dispute is triggered and fueled by a long-running cycle of retaliatory bloodshed.  Many feuds have lasted for generations and have resulted in extreme acts of violence but each side simply refuses to give way. The only solution is for both parties to compromise and create healthier rapport at the round table.  But few choose to admit wrong doings and defeats.  And so the feud continues as more family and group members suffer immense losses through fatalities up to this present day.  When will it end?

ORDINARY MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS

Many non-Muslims are against the Muslims and view them as terrorists.  I am residing in Sabah, Malaysia, a truly multi-racial State with over 2 Million people of various religions and races, and we live in harmony.  Our Muslim friends and relatives attend wedding and funeral church services.  And we visit one another during religious festive seasons.  We are ever so willing to enter mosques without reservations to show our support and respect for our Muslim friends, but sadly, non-Muslims are not permitted in mosques.  A high percentage of Malaysian Muslims, like in many Islamic countries, are good and peaceful people.   It should be noted that it is not the ordinary Muslims who cause terror but their fanatical Muslim hardliners.  Many Muslims have also been butchered and suffer in the hands of these terrorists.

If you think the number of  hardline Muslims is huge, you are absolutely correct. According to research done by http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/65537, there are 1.8 million actual Islamic jihadists on the planet today.  That is heck of a lot of terrorists!  But let us examine this figure. There are 1.5 Billion Muslims worldwide. This means the 1.8 million represents a measly 0.12%.   Therefore, 99.88% or 1.4982 billion Muslims are non-violent! This makes the 1.8 million a mere drop in the ocean, doesn’t it?  If you find one disfigured dollar among the thousands of dollars in your safe, do you destroy the entire fortune and left with nothing?  I am using monetary value here because millions of Muslims are very productive, kind and generous which make our world go round.

THE BIBLE AND KORAN ARE AGAINST VIOLENCE
How about Christian Terrorism?  The crusades took place from approximately A.D. 1095 to 1230. These Crusaders often drew upon Old Testament
scripture to justify violent political activities.  But the Holy Bible never teaches Christians to be violent.  These unbiblical actions were carried out by individuals and not the Church.  The same goes for Islam terrorism.  The Holy Koran never teaches Muslims to be violent.  Fanatical hardliners are responsible for the inflicting terrors, not the Holy Bible or The Holy Koran.  So why unjustifiably blame and slaughter the ordinary Muslims or the ordinary Christians?

RELIGIONS MAINPULATED BY HARDLINERS
We are living in a very tense and treacherous world today where religions are subjected to political abuses and manipulations by selfish leaders under the guise of “God’s heavenly blessings to destroy and kill.  If you follow God’s order, you will go to Heaven”.  But why do they use God’s name? …….Because no one dares to question and challenge God. If my leader says that God or his messenger, the Angel, appears before him and give a disparaging order, so be it….I must stringently follow and fulfill the order or I will rot in Hell!  Unfortunately, in our modern, advanced and educated world today, many people can still be brain-washed and manipulated by others.  Very sad indeed.

As much as we refuse to mix religion with politics, it is happening. Like it or not, we are subjected and have to suffer and live with this trash from day one and perhaps die from it as clearly denoted in the 911 incident and many other butcheries which have lasted for hundreds of years!

IT IS NOT THE RELIGION THAT MATTERS

This is a democratic world and one has the prerogative to make choices.  What is most important is how a leader directs and manages his/her country’s economic, political and overall affairs.  It does not matter which religion he/she belongs to.  Bush is a devoted Christian but he is responsible for catastrophes in The Middle East and losses of Americans’ lives.  Let us have a peek at other Non-Christian world leaders.  While the rest of the world is experiencing the current economic depression and hardship, China is flourishing under the leadership of Hu Jintao, who is NOT a Christian.  And so is Singapore, under the leadership of Lee Hsien Loong who is also NOT a Christian.  The list goes on….

LET US MAKE OUR WORLD A PARADISE


Let us live and work together irrespective of our religion, races and nationality. Let us unite for the sake of peace, financial freedom and for the goodwill and betterment of mankind.  We only have this earthly world, so let us cooperate and make it a better place to live.
