The Associated Press found Obama’s Muslim dominated School in Indonesia in January 2007, and did a story picked up by the Washington Post.
On January 24, 2007, The Washington Post reported that Robert Gibbs stated Obama (legally then as Barry Soetoro) only attended a Catholic School at age 6, and that Obama was even enrolled there, at a Catholic Institution, as a Muslim; but did not understand why that fact was so.
Obama vetted this statement of Robert Gibbs, stating that at ages 7 and 8, he was enrolled in a public (Muslim) School, which “is probably not going to be endangering in some way the people of America.”
Probably. Probably? The Washington Post article notes that Obama was in Indonesia attending school from 1967-1971. So what about ages 9 and 10?
The Washington Post went on to report that:
“…Obama later transferred to SDN Menteng 1 _ the elite…elementary school at the center of the controversy. The school …has exceptionally high standards. It is located in one of the most affluent parts of Jakarta and attracts mostly middle- to upper-class students, among them several of former dictator Suharto's grandchildren. Indonesia is home to several of the most radical Islamic schools in Southeast Asia, some with alleged terrorist links. “
So let me get this right. Obama attends an upper class Shia (Iranian sect) Muslim school with the grandchildren of Indonesian Dictator Suharto, in a Third World dictatorship, and we are to expect there was no security and loyalty clearances, no special lists of who could or could not attend, and no Islamic influences upon Obama? And why does Obama leave out ages 9 and 10 when asked?
Two months later, on March 6, 2007, Nicholas Kristof at the New York Times reported that Obama “ spent four years as a child in Indonesia and attended schools in the Indonesian language, which he still speaks. … Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. … Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” Moreover, Mr. Obama’s own grandfather in Kenya was a Muslim. “
So we find Obama now spent 4 years as a Muslim. He learned Indonesian and Arabic, and glories in the sounds of Islam; seeing even the sunset in the Islamic view, and Islam as a heritage from his Kenyan grandfather. Does this sound like a Christian? No, it does not.
Some have dismissed Obama’s mother as a non-practicing Christian, an atheist, a humanist, or what have you. They have played down Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s Indonesian stepfather as a rarely practicing Muslim, oft drunk and womanizer. So what did Barack’s sister say to characterize her brother Barack, and her mother and father, etc?
On April 30, 2007, Jodi Kantor of the NY Times reported: “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim,” said Maya Soetoro-Ng, Mr. Obama’s younger half sister.”
On Jun 14, 2007 HAROON SIDDIQUI of the Star.com reported on his visit to Jakarta
JAKARTA– “Barack Hussein Obama Jr. spent part of his youth here in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation. The entrance foyer to his elementary school has a photograph, 2 metres by 1.3 metres, of the hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Ten steps into the crowded rectangular courtyard and you can see his old homeroom, adjacent to the stairway leading to the second floor mosque, where he studied Islam.
He had a different name then, Barry Soetoro, after his stepfather.…Three of his teachers have said he was enrolled as a Muslim. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, he mentions his Qur'an studies here. A classmate of his in Jakarta has said that Obama used to wear a sarong and accompany his father to the neighbourhood mosque…
…his stepsister, Maya Soetoro, felt compelled to say: "My father never went to prayer services except for big communal events. I am absolutely certain that he did not go to services every Friday."….Headmaster Kuwadiyanto (he has only one name) and vice-principal Hardi Priyono are amused by the controversy and the parade of Americans to the school – three members of the U.S. embassy here and nine visiting reporters, so far.
… the majority of its 475 students being Muslim, the biggest religion class is in the mosque. The day of my visit being a Friday, the girls are wearing the hijab and the boys the kufi skull cap, and both attend the noon prayers.” http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/225233
By Saturday, December 22, 2007 MSNBC had reported that
“…Obama explained his connection to Islam in this way: …"The only connection I’ve had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father’s side came from that country. But I’ve never practiced Islam."
…"For a while, I lived in Indonesia because my mother was teaching there. And that’s a Muslim country. And I went to school. But I didn’t practice.“
This last quote, that bald faced lie that he didn’t “practice”, was picked up and carried by CNN the next day, and reported: Obama “touched on the fact that he lived in the Muslim country of Indonesia for four years of his childhood. "I didn’t practice [Islam]," ….http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2007/12/23/voter-asks-obama-about-muslim-background/
Obama didn’t practice? In attending what the Indonesians themselves called a Muslim "public" school, Obama was immersed in daily studies of the Arabic language and the Koran for a bare minimum of at least 2 hours a day at ages 7, 8, 9, and 10. This totals a bare minimum of 10 hours a week. He wore the kufi skull cap, did mandatory Friday noon prostration prayers with the other Muslims because he studied the Koran with them. That’s practicing.
What about any time spent at home in study? Is that just "homework"? Or what about the Mosque his step-father and he attended. Obama spent ages 7-10 learning Arabic as well as Indonesian, he memorized praising Allah in a long winded Arabic song beautifying (the false deity of) Allah 96 different ways. That’s called Practicing.
Obama wore a Muslim Sarong and sang that prayer at sunsets (memorizing it deeply into his soul), and did his prayer prostrations. That's practicing.
Obama accompanied his step-father at Muslim communal events as a Muslim step-child. That’s called practicing. Obama is a bald faced liar…which to him, as a Muslim, is a compliment.
"They plot and plan, and Allah too plans,
but the best of planners,
(arabic equates 'planners' with liars, fakers, bluffers, and deceivers)
is Allah." (Surah 8:30)
The greater the deception, the greater the exaltation as a Muslim in Islam.
Barack once even accidentally confessed his Muslim faith, and momentarily blew his "mole" cover; and it was up to the interviewer to help dig him out:
In an interview with Jewish leaders, candidate Obama in February 2008 stated:
"... I have never been a Muslim...so other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child I have very little connection to the Islamic religion...."
But is that true? Not according to Obama who wrote in his "Dreams From My Father":
"In Indonesia…(i)n the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during Koranic studies. My mother wasn't overly concerned.”
...In the Catholic school, when it came time to pray, I would pretend to close my eyes and then peek around the room. Nothing happened. No angels descended. Just a parched old nun and thirty brown children, muttering words." Pg 154.
That is, Obama expresses disbelief in Catholicism / Christianity, and appears to state that he had fun as a Muslim, sympathizing with Islam, and disbelieving Christianity… in his own words. So again, where are Obama's sympathies? According to Indonesians themselves, they used to be with Islam.
On January 23, 2007, Lao, a blogger who lived for many years in Indonesia wrote some good data, but there is some that which conflicts other testimony, I must set aside for later analysis:
All Indonesian students are required to study religion at school and a young "Barry Soetoro" being a Muslim would have been required to study Islam daily in school. He would have been taught to read and write Arabic, to recite his prayers properly, to read and recite from the Quran and to study the laws of Islam.
On January 24, 2007, he writes:
Barack Hussein Obama was registered under the name "Barry Soetoro" serial number 203 and entered the Franciscan Asisi Primary School on 1 January 1968 and sat in class 1B. ... Barry's religion was listed as Islam. School documents further record Barry's father as "L Soetoro Ma" who worked as an official of the Director General's office in the TNI Topography division of the Indonesian Army.
Classmate Rony Amir describes a young Barry Soetoro ...of being a very devout Muslim. "Barry was previously quite religious in Islam. His birth father, Barack Hussein Obama was a Muslim economist from Kenya. Before marrying Ann Dunham, Hussein Obama was married to a woman from Kenya who had seven children. All the relatives of Barry's father were very devout Muslims"
The issue isn't about ethnicity, it is about loyalties to the US, and about an inability for Obama to be deserving of any trust by the American People.
To the Muslim ears, Obama informs the Muslim world that he is here on Earth to promote Islam. http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/p18084.xml?media=print
And on the other hand, Obama's new best friends (whom he has taken into the West Wing of the White House and on the Trip to Cairo), the Nation of Islam, actually believes...that G-D is a negro, that the pure and righteous are negroes, and the white man is the incarnation of evil created by a mad scientist on Patmos, and that all Jews and Christians with white skin need to be annihilated, and the war will start and is to be assisted by some mother spacecraft which tells them when they are to rise up to do it.

So if there is any issue of racism...it comes from Barack Obama himself, and from more of those crazy lunatics he continually surrounds himself and insulates himself with...as well as the Socialist-Communists of the Media. If Barack is comfortable with such lunacy as what the Nation of Islam believes, he shouldn't even be mayor of a small town, let alone someone with ready access to the nuclear football and the US Nuclear Arsenal.
As for the Media...they might as well be singing to one of the fun songs from Go-Go's for their LACK of objectivity when it comes to their idol, Obama, whom they worship in these times from 2008-?. History will look back and call the Mainstream Media amd those who supported and worshipped Obama more evil and insane than those who followed Adolf Hitler in the 1930s and gave us World War II and over 50,000,000 dead. No offense against the Go-Go's who put the song out a quarter-century before America's lunatics seized power in the United States.
