Obama went to a mosque in Malaysia on Sunday, and what he said there is very, very disturbing
Some of these people want us wiped from the face of the earth and our so-called President just gives in to them? Hussein are you a Muslim apologist?
This is disturbing on a lot of levels. First, Christians don’t ask Muslims to pray for them. A Christian believes that the God of the Bible is the only God, and asking someone to pray to Allah is asking those people to put another God before Him, which is the first commandment.
Secondly, no other world leader that is not a Muslim has ever done anything like this before. Obama sympathizes with a religion that literally wants to wipe us off the face of the planet. They kill women, children, gay people, or anyone that offends them. You would like to think an American president would condemn this kind of religion, instead he asks them to “pray for him”.
(CNSNews.com) – Visiting Malaysia’s National Mosque on Sunday, President Obama was asked by the institution’s imam to end oppression against Muslims worldwide, Malaysia’s national press agency Bernama reported.
“Pray for me,” Obama replied, according to Grand Imam Ismail Muhammad, who took him on a 25-minute tour of the mosque, called Masjid Negara in Malay, in Kuala Lumpur.
“Obama also said that every day when he wakes up he always does his best to put an end to oppression and conflicts affecting communities,” Bernama quoted Ismail as saying.
The 70 year-old cleric said Obama had frequently replied with InsyAllah (Malay for “Allah willing”) and terima kasih (“thank you”) during the tour.
“It was nice of him, although he could not speak much of the Malay language but understood what I had said to him,” he said.
Obama, who wore a dark suit and removed his shoes, also visited and paid his respects at the National Mausoleum at the mosque complex, where former prime ministers and deputy prime ministers are buried.
Malaysia’s Star newspaper quoted Abdullah Muhammad Zin, religious advisor to Prime Minister Najib Razak, as saying it was “not common” for the leader of a superpower to include a visit to a mosque in his itinerary.
“There can be no better way for Obama to honor Islam than by visiting Masjid Negara,” he said.
Bernama quoted several other senior Muslim figures commenting on the visit.
“This is out of the ordinary as I cannot recall any non-Muslim world leader visiting the National Mosque and this is a good start for Muslims here,” said Ustaz Wan Akashah Wan Abdul Hamid, a religious scholar.
