Is Obama A Muslim or a Fool?

I’ve concluded Obama is either a Muslim or a fool and I’m inclined to put it at 70/30 he’s a fool. I did not come to this conclusion easily nor did I conclude same over night, at least not the Muslim part of my conclusion.
As my friend and colleague Dr. Walter E. Williams noted, Obama said: “We have reaffirmed that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.” (Will the West Defend Itself; 9/30/14) Well, it might be a good idea for someone to clue the Muslims in on that. Because as I have read, and as Dr. Williams noted: “The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), sometimes called ISIS or IS, is a Sunni extremist group that follows al-Qaida’s anti-West ideology and sees a holy war against the West as a religious duty. With regard to nonbelievers, the Quran commands, “‘And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out.'” And this is but one of many such verses calling for death and destruction of those who refuse to convert to Islam.
Obama made that statement in his speech to the United Nations September 24. In his speech, Obama called ISIS a “perversion of Islam.” That was different than his opinion about ISIS just two weeks earlier, when on September 10, (the day before most Americans were commemorating both 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks), Obama said in a national address that“ISIS is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
The one thing I have observed and America should have learned is when it comes to his feelings about Islam, he speaks from the core of his ideology. That means he is either a Muslim (or at very least a Muslim sympathizer) or a fool.
Only a Muslim or a fool would make such statements. If ISIS isn’t part of Islam, what are they? Specific to same, it appears that if Obama has even a remote complaint about ISIS, it is pursuant to their killing other Muslims. Which is telling in itself because Muslims actually aren’t supposed to kill “innocent Muslims”. A fact every Muslim fully understands.
That said, killing and marauding are the tenets of Islam. Killing, conquest, and fanatically rigid legalism is precisely what Islam is about.
Does Obama forget that it was Muslims who imprisoned and sentenced Meriam Ibraham to death for not being a Muslim? Does he forget that it was Muslims who forced her to have her baby in the filth of the prison where she was unjustly held? Does he forget that it was Muslims who kept her shackled in chains during the birth of her child in that prison? Does he forget that it was the Muslim government that capitulated and caused more emotional trauma for Ibraham and her family when she was retaken into custody, along with her children and husband as they prepared to depart the country after she was granted a release? Perhaps Obama wasn’t aware that this was going on. After all, he was quite busy effecting an exchange of five of America’s highest value detainees for a military deserter who was not worth the American lives it cost to locate him.
How does Obama reconcile the historical record that since before Noah, Muslims and their predecessors have been raping, plundering, and murdering their way through history? How does he reconcile the unprovoked Muslim atrocities (read: acts of unprovoked terrorism) around the word that have taken place in his lifetime?
How does he reconcile that over 90 percent of the known terrorist groups in 27 countries worldwide are Islamic? How does he reconcile the fact that almost as quickly as people convert to Islam they take up terrorism?
Obama is either a Muslim or a fool. They are the only ones who can openly reason as he does. For the sake of argument, I’m willing to debate his being a Muslim sympathizer and not a full blown Muslim. But he is still a fool. Because a fool not only denies the truth, but he also denies the existence of God. And anyone who has lied and who adheres so stridently to the things Obama does cannot believe they will be judged by a just and righteous God.
