The nexus between Black Nationalism and Islam is inexorable. As a matter of record, Barack HUSSEIN Obama was tied to Reverend Wright (until political expediency caused him to throw the uncontrollable/voluble Rev under the bus) for over 20 years, a man who is linked to the Nation of Islam in more ways than one, despite passing himself off as a Christian - http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2132/jeremiah-wright-was-a-muslim-why-that-matters/.
Let’s dispense with the pleasantries – Wright is a Christian like this Israeli blogger is an Islamist. Is the moon made of cream cheese?
And, to further cogitate on the subject, Chris Wilson from Slate.com offers the following insights:
“Most are Sunnis, if they care to make the distinction. A2007 survey by the Pew Research Center found that among the several million Muslims in America, 20 percent are native-born African-Americans. Among those black Muslims, half identified themselves as Sunni—as Ellison does—and another third said they had no affiliation. There are a handful of predominantly black Shiite mosques in the United States, though they represent a small minority of all black Muslims. Another small percentage belongs to the Nation of Islam, an independent Muslim movement that has had strained relations with the mainstream Islamic community. Estimates of the Nation of Islam’s membership vary from 10,000 to 200,000 with most guesses falling near the low end.”
Yours truly posits aloud: does the above even matter? It matters a whole damn lot, at least if one is attempting to understand a chief construct of the Islamist-in-Chief’s mental grounding (the ‘green’ part, of the red/green alliance).
More to the point, many are wondering: why would a POTUS bow to a Saudi King? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WlqW6UCeaY…. this is a first by a U.S. leader, notwithstanding Bush’s infamous hand holding with the King…while disquieting…certainly NOT on par with a bow of submission), and further questioning: why did he feel so much at home – getting married, and baptizing his children by Wright too – at a faux ‘Christian’ church, which is more in line with Islam than with Christianity? These are not mere speculations, they are factual occurrences.
While many factors are at play, most significant are his childhood groundings in Indonesia, and his trip to Kenya, vividly described in ‘Dreams FROM My Father’. They are the core of his moorings; piggybacked by the ‘teachings of his mother’, a life-long communist/red; cemented by the ‘special relationship’ with ‘Frank’ (Frank Davis Marshal - http://www.wnd.com/2010/04/139805/); and reinforced by his grandfather, Stanley Dunham.
The anti-American ties that bind…red and green…diametrically in conflict with red, white and blue.
Therefore, when the following ( highly explosive information ) was initially released in March 2008, subsequently covered up by a complaint media, it placed a spotlight on ties which should have brought Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s campaign to a screeching halt. However, ( heretofore ) journalistic due diligence/ethics morphed into a perverse code of conduct, demanding of its members another credo: how fast can the media cover ‘The One’s’ tracks, as opposed to letting the truth land where it may?
Faster than a ‘John’ to his whore. Liars, liars, pants on fire.
In any case, some skeletons are harder to bury than others – and that is a good thing! So, for a little re-rummaging, take a peek at the latest.
‘Saudi Billionaire Did Help Obama Into Harvard’ -
“In late March 2008, on a local New York City show called “Inside City Hall,” the venerable African-American entrepreneur and politico, Percy Sutton, told host Dominic Carter how he was asked to help smooth Barack Obama’s admission into Harvard Law School 20 years earlier.
The octogenarian Sutton calmly and lucidly explained that he had been “introduced to [Obama] by a friend.” The friend’s name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and the introduction had taken place about 20 years prior.
Sutton described al-Mansour as “the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men.” The billionaire in question was Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
Given, the game-changing nature of this revelation when it surfaced in late August 2008, the Obama camp and its allies in the media, particularly Politico and Media Matters, shifted into overdrive to kill the story. Through a series of denials, lies and slanders about Sutton’s mental health, they succeeded.
In his introduction, the host openly acknowledged that al-Mansour “made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of President Barack Obama and had recommended him for admission to Harvard Law School.”
The host goes on to describe al-Mansour as “co-founder of the International law firm of al-Waleed, al-Talal and al-Mansour and special adviser to Saudi Arabian prince, his royal highness Prince Al Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulazziz.”
This meshed completely with what Sutton had said in 2008. According to Sutton, al-Mansour had asked him to “please write a letter in support of [Obama] … a young man that has applied to Harvard.” Sutton had friends at Harvard and gladly did so.
Although Sutton did not specify a date, this would likely have been in 1988 when the 26-year-old Obama was applying to Harvard Law School.
Khalid al-Mansour was a piece of work. Although impressively well connected, the Texan-born attorney and black separatist had not met the paranoid racial fantasy unworthy of his energy.
Several of his speeches can still be seen on YouTube. In one, “A Little on the History of Jews,” he lectures the world’s Jews, “God gave you nothing. The children from Poland and Russia were promised nothing. But they are stealing the land the same as the Christians stole the lands from the Indians in America.”
For the record, bin Talal was the very same Saudi who had offered New York $10 million to help the city rebuild after 9/11, but who had his gift refused by Mayor Rudy Guiliani. In September 2001, Giuliani was in no mood to hear even a billionaire blame America for inciting the attacks with its pro-Israel stance, no matter how deep his pockets.
Ben Smith, then of Politico, took the lead in killing the story. Shortly after the story broke, Smith ran the disclaimer that “Barack Obama’s campaign is flatly denying a story told by former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton.”
The Obama camp, in fact, denied that Obama even knew al-Mansour. Smith then talked to al-Mansour. At first, al-Mansour avoided contradicting Sutton’s story out of respect for Sutton, “a dear friend.” When pressed, however, al-Mansour disowned Sutton’s story. “The scenario as it related to me did not happen,” he reportedly told Smith.
A self-appointed “spokesman for Sutton’s family” by the name of Kevin Wardally put the penultimate nails in this story’s coffin with an email to Smith that read in part: “As best as our family and the Chairman’s closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.”
For Smith, even though Wardally had gotten Sutton’s age wrong by two years, this emailed slander was proof enough that Sutton’s highly specific claim was manufactured. Media Matters, meanwhile, scolded those conservative bloggers that did not accept the various denials at face value.
Independent journalist Ken Timmerman, now running for Congress in Maryland, followed up with Wardally. Unconvincingly, Wardally claimed that a nephew of the elder Sutton had retained his services.
Sutton’s son and daughter, however, told Timmermanthat no one in their family even knew who Kevin Wardally was, let alone authorized him to speak on behalf of the family.
When Timmerman contacted al-Mansour, he repeatedly declined to comment on what Sutton had said and, contrary to the line from the Obama camp, claimed to know Obama personally.
With Hillary out of the race, no newsroom in America felt compelled to follow up on Timmerman’s research. At the time this story was gelling, in early September 2008, the media were doing all their digging in Alaskan dumpsters. The 89-year-old Sutton died in December 2009.
The Obama media will try to ignore this new revelation or, if not, kill it. Their best argument now is that al-Mansour was not on the air when his introduction was read. That is true enough.
Yet from the casual tone of the introduction, the listener senses that within black nationalist circles, the story Sutton told is believed to be true. If so, it should absolutely matter that a Saudi billionaire and his black nationalist cohorts have been promoting Obama from the beginning.
Ben Smith is now editor of Buzzfeed. If he ever wants to be taken seriously as a journalist, the onus is on him to follow up. If he wants to throw his peers a bone, he can report that bin Talal owns 7 percent of News Corp., the parent company of Fox News.”
Far be it from this blogger to be mean spirited, but come on folks, did anyone think that a pot smoking; less than stellar student at Occidental, a barely middle tier school; who ‘somehow’ managed to get into Columbia, now, that is worthy of a head scratch; got into Harvard by his lonesome, never mind who paid his fees?
How stupid do they ( his surrogates in the media, as well as his endless band of liars ) think we are?
