President Obama’s speech in
today was an eye opener for many reasons and on many levels.
his speech with the standard Arabic Muslim greeting, ‘As-salam Alaikum’, with
an eerily uncomfortable familiarity. When JFK said ‘Ich bin ein
Berliner’, it was understood that everyone in the West stood against the
East in the Cold War. What does is say when our current President says,
‘May Allah’s peace be with you’, and may imply even more!
The true meaning of “As-Salam
Alaikum” is not a mere “Hi”, “Hello”, “How are
you” as we are accustomed to using today – it has a much deeper meaning
than just a standard greeting. In actuality, there are three meanings for this
1. As-Salam, as we know, is one of the names of Allah. Thus, when we say
“As-Salam Alaikum” we are actually saying that may the trait of Allah
(as-Salam or peace and tranquility be upon you and may He protect you;
2. As-Salam is also in the meaning of submission or surrender. Thus, when we
say “As-Salam Alaikum” we are actually saying that we submit to what
you would like for us to do (obviously within the limits of the Shariah);
3. As-Salam is also in the meaning of protection or safety. Thus in this
meaning, when we greet another believer with “As-Salam Alaikum” we
are actually guaranteeing our believing brother or sister protection from any
evil from ourselves and that we will not do a single thing to harm them –
either physically or even spiritually. Not only would we not harm them with our
hands, but we will also not cause them grief with our tongue…
Shake off your outdated Christian American ideology for a moment
and axe yourself, just what was PBO saying to the audience and the world at
Did his famous smile and wink, after saying ‘Salam Alaikum’ he
really mean ‘Peace be unto you.’, or did it really belie his emerging policy of
submission and surrender?
He introduced himself as Barack Hussein Obama,
something he never did during his campaign. Those that did use his full
name were chastised by the media. He gave his lineage as a Kenyan father

course, the media will not take him to task for these contradictions.

grew: war). He promoted a Palestinian state, at the expense of
solution for the tensions in the Mid-East. He denigrated our ally and the
only true democracy in the Middle-East.
Have you yet questioned this guys intentions? They are
becoming clearer by the day. I quote from his

‘When the first Muslim-American was recently
elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same
Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, kept in his
personal library.’ (Thomas Jefferson acquired this Koran to understand
the mind of his enemy, the Barbary Pirates. He was not an admirer of
Islam as PBO would have your believe.)
I have a number of Jewish friends. I have yet to figure
out why they, by-in-large, vote Democrat. Regardless, I am hearing an
immense dissatisfaction with ‘Democrat’ PBO among them. They might not be
Republicans, but they are not Socialists and certainly not believers in
Islam. They are not happy with PBO’s idea of a separate Palestinian
state. Their points:
