Obama a Muslim

#1
Strange those videos showing Palin supporters ranting that Obama is a Muslim.
So what if he is a Muslim, does the President of the USA have to be Christian ?

I notice General Powell mentioning that a US soldier of the Muslim faith is buried in Arlington.
Has a US soldier of the Muslim faith who was KIA earned the right to be buried in Arlington or not ?

Are you for real?? If he\she has served his\her Country and has died in the Service of His\her Country then he\She deserves to be buried in Arlington. Doesnt matter what faith the choose to follow. And If they are Muslim they dont have to do any more or less to EARN there place.

When the Indian army served alongside the British army religion had no place or say in the matter of the burial of men who fought for their King Emperor. All armies honour their dead regardless of their beliefs

I think you're referring to this young lad: Kareem Rashid Khan RIP

On “Meet the Press” today, Colin L. Powell concluded his endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama by referring to the death of a Muslim soldier, Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan of Manahawkin, N.J., who was killed in Iraq on Aug. 6, 2007, and whose remains were buried in Arlington.

He and three other soldiers, including a corporal from Washington Heights, were killed in Baquba after a bomb detonated while they were checking abandoned houses for explosives. They served in the Stryker Brigade combat team of the Army’s 2nd Infantry Division, based in Ft. Lewis, Washington.

Mr. Khan graduated from Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin in 2005, and enlisted in the Army a few months later, spurred by his memories of the 9/11 terror attacks. “His Muslim faith did not make him not want to go. It never stopped him,” his father, Feroze Khan, told the Gannett News Service in a story printed shortly after his death. “He looked at it that he’s American and he has a job to do.”

Mr. Powell mentioned Mr. Khan’s death to underscore why he was deeply troubled by Republican personal attacks on Mr. Obama, especially false intimations that he was Muslim.

Mr. Obama is a lifelong Christian, not a Muslim, he said. But, he added, “The really right answer is, what if he is?”

“Is there something wrong with being Muslim in this country? No, that’s not America,” he said.


Mr. Khan’s death came to his attention, Mr. Powell said, when he saw a photo essay in a magazine about the deaths of American soldiers in Iraq. One picture showed a mother pressing her head against the gravestone of her fallen son in Arlington cemetery. It was the grave of 20-year-old Mr. Khan, engraved with his name, his military awards, and the Muslim symbol of the crescent and star.

“He was 14 years old at the time of 9/11, and he waited until he could go serve his country, and he gave his life,” Mr. Powell said. “Now, we have got to stop polarizing ourselves in this way.”
This is the photo that Powell was referring to:

No - he's a Christian. And you have to wonder what agenda the Christian right are pushing by trying to portray him as a Muslim. And if he was - so what?

And far too many of these deluded retards seem to think that that current operations are the crusades reborn.

The sad fact is that many (rednecks, sh1tkickers) will take this statement as gospel, as if they need any encouragement.

I think you might want to go and learn the definition of a rhetorical question before you check out the keys the the Outrage Bus, old chap. :roll:

Wow, another example of an unhealthy obcession with the US. Say, maybe Her Majesty is actually a closet Muslim? There are several that say The Prince of Wales ex-wife was killed because she was carrying a muslim baby in her womb. Must be true, I thought I read it in the Guardian, or was that the Independent, or the ...?

Thanks for the catch...besides I liked the Princess, just not her choice of Husband, but then again not my business is it?

As for Barrack Hussein I am not a Muslim, I think he is a piece of shit, a liberal/socialist and according to Muslim juris-prudence if one's father is a Muslim then they are as well, I rest my clase, "me lord." But of course you Brits would know this since you seem to know everything about everyone else. I wonder how many of you have actually even visited the United States? Few, I am sure! Where as I have spent quite a lot of time in Wales (nice spelling) and England.

You were trying to state in your white, hardworking manner, I rest my case Mi Lord.
So should US Muslim soldiers be interned in Arlington ?
Or should it be kept for Christian soldiers only ?

It is absolute nonsense to say a Muslin, Jew, Athiest or Wiccan or anyone else cannot be buried in Arlington National Cemetary.

ANC has fairly strict eligibility rules ANC Rules clicky but no religious restriction. All graves now have to have stones of uniform size. They have a wide range of symbols for beliefs including some for religions I have never heard of (headstone design clicky). The symbol of belief is the only graphic allowed except that those who earned the Medal of Honor have the MoH engraved on the stone also.

I firmly believe that there is no truth to the "Obama is Muslim" nonsense. He is a Baptist which is a mainstream Protestant church. I am not voting for him but that has nothing to do with his religious beliefs or color but a lot to do with his political beliefs.

No, but why would they want to let the truth/sense/reality get in the way?

"An ABC News poll released Sunday found that 61 percent of Americans believe the account of creation in the Bible's book of Genesis is "literally true" rather than a story meant as a "lesson."

Sixty percent believe in the story of Noah's ark and a global flood, while 64 percent agree that Moses parted the Red Sea to save fleeing Jews from their Egyptian captors."

More on this...




& PRO_USA_UK, you my friend, are a moron.

I think i saw one that sybolised the devil near the end?

If they have fought just the same, just as hard and their fellow christian soldiers then they should be buried with them.

But why are we talking about burying sldiers, one soldier who has passed is one too many soldiers that have passed, no matter what their race, beleifs or background are, let them all rest in peace and quit this trivial banter.
