Barack Obama Campaign and his Muslim outreach record

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by gauharjk, Aug 6, 2008.

  1. #1
    Mazen Asbahi, has resigned "amid questions about his 'involvement' in an Islamic investment fund and various Islamic groups."

    Do Muslims (in USA and across the world) view Barack Obama as an intelligent, honest peace broker? What has been his track record with involvement with Muslims, or issues that concern Muslims?

    Let's tally up Obama's Muslim outreach record:

    I don't see any connection between obama and muslim, except for one thing: he step father was a muslim.
    he never went to madrasah, it was just a general public school.
    if he is a muslim, somebody else will quickly notice it, because a muslim need to pray at least 5 times a day.

    Obama intentions are a concern from citizens abroad and in the United States. Obama has made a few threats against a few countries that have gone mostly unreported by the major networks. I know that the Pakistani and Iranian government have voiced concern for Obama's threats.

    Nothing wrong with abortion, just killing millions of lives isn't a big deal.

    I can certainly see your points, and that is what an election is all about. you have to vote for the candidate that has your best interest at heart based on the agenda that you believe in.
    All the debates and forum posts in the world cannot tell you how to feel, just as the rest of us.

    We would like to think that we all can debate, and discuss the issues without getting personal and name calling, but unfortunately, it does not seem to be possible.
    Voting is personal , like music, no one can tell you who to like, your issues are yours alone.

    Hopefully you can chose and not let your vote go uncast. Change in America happens when people get involved and question policies of the past.

    Last Sunday there was a guy from an American Muslim Organization remarking how Obama has avoided contact with American Muslims.
    IMO it's not avoidance. He is smart enough to know that the other side will misconstrue the communication and use it to capitalize of the irrational fears that many Americans still harbor, and how easy it is to stir them up.

    America is a paranoid country, there is no way around it. Some political parties weigh in on that irrational fear...even depend on it.

    It's not personal, it's Politics.

    Whatever religion he might be, it doesn't matter. But what matters is what he believes in and what he will do once he is in office.

    And him being a smart man, he sure got lot of people following his train, even younger age.

    Guerilla, I'd like to ask you a question. With Ron Paul out of the equation, who would you like to see in the office? Obama or McCain?

    It doesn't matter. They are exactly the same.

    Bad on war, bad on civil liberties, bad on the constitution and bad on monetary/fiscal policy.

    Even the intelligent supporters in this forum admit that the best they can hope for from McCain is decent SCOTUS selections. No one is expecting McCain to be a visionary, or courageous or effective or heroic President.

    And likewise, Obama is an empty bag of wind. People are treating him like the second coming of Gandhi or Christ, and he has never done much of anything to convince them of such.

    If you want real liberty, you want a 3rd party candidate.

    If you're an enviro-fascist granola eating tree hugger, you have the Greens and Cynthia McKinney.

    If you're an anti-corporatist, left anarcho-communist, you want Nader.

    If you're a Constitutionalist and into theocracy, you want the Constitution Party and Chuck Baldwin.

    If you're for small government and fiscal conservatism, you want the Libertarian Party and Bob Barr.

    All 4 candidates agree that the major issues are

    War - It must end NOW.

    Debt - Deficit spending must stop NOW.

    Civil Liberties - The Bill of Rights must be restored NOW.

    Monetary Policy / FED - Must be brought under control now, to stop endless bailouts of Wall Street at the taxpayer's expense.​

    Obama and McCain both agree on none of that.

    Before you say only Obama or McCain can win, that might be true. But voting for the lesser of two evils is still evil.

    Read this and reconsider.

    That article makes a lot of sense. I wish India had a leader like Ron Paul.

    If every country had leaders like Ron Paul, there would be no wars, and a lot more freedom and prosperity.

    Wars destroy lives and property, and then tax whoever is left to pay to rebuild the destruction. It is the worst thing a society can do as it struggles to solve problems like limited resources, famine and lack of access to modern facilities.

    What created Paul's large internet following? And why did it not cross over into the mainstream?
