The president's top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a "legitimate tenet of Islam," arguing that the term "jihadists" should not be used to describe America's enemies.
During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces," but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms."
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not "terrorism," because terrorism is a "tactic," and not terror, because terror is a "state of mind" -- though Brennan's title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word "terrorism" in it. But then Brennan said that the word "jihad" should not be applied either.
"Nor do we describe our enemy as 'jihadists' or 'Islamists' because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children," Brennan said.
Brennan argued that it would be "counterproductive" for the United States to use the term, as it would "play into the false perception" that the "murderers" leading war against the West are doing so in the name of a "holy cause."
The comment comes after Brennan, in a February speech in which he described his respect for the tolerance and devotion of Middle Eastern nations, referred to Jerusalem on first reference by its Arabic name, Al-Quds. "In all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem, where three great faiths come together," Brennan said at an event co-sponsored by the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Islamic Center at New York University and the Islamic Law Students Association at NYU. ." source - Fox News

Obama's Saudi Arabian Connection Exposed In His Own Words and Deeds
"Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known." Matthew 10:26
Hide in plain sight. It seems that nearly every week some new story emerges attempting to connect Barack Obama with Islam. Some of these stories are just viscious slander, and we immediately discount stories of that ilk. But there are other stories, from intelligent, credible sources, that are rising to the surface and sticking. This article will show you the evidence from those credible sources, and then we will let you decide.The strongest evidence we have will be from the words and deeds of Barack Obama himself.
The Bow Heard Around The World
A deep bow from the waist is a recognized sign of submission to the person you are bowing to, in much the same way that a dog will lay down before it's master. The meaning of the word "Islam" is 'submission'. That is what you are watching in this photo - Obama, as the leader of America, submitting to a foreign, Muslim king. You will note that the King is not bowing in return, but instead maintains the superior position.
No other sitting American president has ever bowed from the waist to the leader of any foreign country
"In a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate, President Obama bowed to Saudi King Abdullah at the Group of 20 summit in London last week. The bow was an extraordinary protocol violation. Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king's subjects, not his peer. There is no precedent for U.S. presidents bowing to Saudi or any other royals. Former President Franklin D. Roosevelt shook hands with Saudi King Abdulaziz in February 1945. Granted, Mr. Roosevelt was wheelchair-bound, but former President Dwight D. Eisenhower shook hands when he first met King Saud in January 1957. Mr. Obama's bow to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques does not help his image with those who believe he is secretly a Muslim, and why he chose to bow only to the Saudi King and not to any other royals remains unexplained." source - Washington Times
Egyptian Foreign Minister: Obama told me he is a Muslim.
"Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda. Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel." source - Atlas Shrugs
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit greets President Obama
"We are no longer a Christian nation" - Barack Obama
This video is nearly 10 minutes long and is exclusively in the words of Obama himself, and is perhaps the most damning evidence of all. In this video you will hear the effusive praise that Obama has for Islam, and the disdain he shows for Christianity.
Obama gives nearly half a billion dollars to terror organization HAMAS
Washington (CNN) - The United States will contribute $400 million in development aid to the Palestinian territories and work with Israel to loosen its embargo on Gaza, President Barack Obama said Wednesday. Obama's announcement came after White House talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The money will be used to build housing, schools, water and health care systems in both the Palestinian Authority-controlled West Bank and Gaza, which is ruled by the Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas. Obama called the situation in Gaza "unsustainable," and said the United States would work with its European allies, Egypt and Israel to find a "new conceptual framework" for the Israeli blockade of Gaza." source - CNN
Obama Administration to Support Anti-Israel Resolution at UN Next Week
THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that senior Obama administration officials have been telling foreign governments that the administration intends to support an effort next week at the United Nations to set up an independent commission, under UN auspices, to investigate Israel's behavior in the Gaza flotilla incident. The White House has apparently shrugged off concerns from elsewhere in the U.S. government that a) this is an extraordinary singling out of Israel, since all kinds of much worse incidents happen around the world without spurring UN investigations; b) that the investigation will be one-sided, focusing entirely on Israeli behavior and not on Turkey or on Hamas; and c) that this sets a terrible precedent for outside investigations of incidents involving U.S. troops or intelligence operatives as we conduct our own war on terror." source - The Weekly Standard
Obama refuses to investigate Ft. Hood slaying by Muslim soldier
(AP) WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Saturday urged Congress to hold off on any investigation of the Fort Hood rampage until federal law enforcement and military authorities have completed their probes into the shootings at the Texas Army post, which left 13 people dead. On an eight-day Asia trip, Obama turned his attention home and pleaded for lawmakers to "resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into the political theater." He said those who died on the nation's largest Army post deserve justice, not political stagecraft." source - Huffington Post
Obama breaks promise to prevent Iran from going nuclear
US President Barack Obama has decided to abandon any serious effort to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. He is determined instead to live with a nuclear Iran, by containment and, if possible, negotiation. This is the shifting tectonic plate in the Middle East. This is the giant story of the past few weeks which the world has largely missed, distracted by the theatre of the absurd of Obama's contrived and mock confrontation with Israel over 1600 apartments to be built in three years' time in a Jewish suburb in East Jerusalem." source - The Australian
Obama swore he wouldn't let Iran go nuclear, and yet, he did nothing to stop them from firing up their nuclear reactor
"BUSHEHR, Iran - Trucks rumbled into Iran's first reactor Saturday to begin loading tons of uranium fuel in a long-delayed startup touted by officials as both a symbol of the country's peaceful intentions to produce nuclear energy as well as a triumph over Western pressure to rein in its nuclear ambitions. The Russian-built Bushehr nuclear power plant will be internationally supervised, including a pledge by Russia to safeguard it against materials being diverted for any possible use in creating nuclear weapons. Iran's agreement to allow the oversight was a rare compromise by the Islamic state over its atomic program." source - Yahoo News
Obama commands NASA to start Muslim outreach
Listen to NASA head Charles Bolden talk about Obama's outreach to the Muslim world. And why, exactly, is NASA conducting a 'muslim outreach'?
Proof of Obama's ties to Saudi Arabia?
Is Barack Obama a pawn of the king of Saudi Arabia? Has Obama lied to the American people about his past, his background and his christianity? Remember it is a command of Islam to 'deceive the infidel', this is called Taqiyah. Taqiyah, as defined by Islam is this - "In Islamic terminology it means "to save life, honour. or property (either one's own or of other believers) by hiding one's belief or religion" source - Al-Islam.org
One thing is certain - Obama has not been truthful with the American people. Based on the evidence presented here from legitmate, credible sources including the videotaped testimony culled from speeches and interviews given by Obama himself, it would be safe to draw the conclusion that he is not who he has presented himself to be. By his own words and actions, he is the most pro-Muslim president in American history, and does seem to have a pro-Muslim agenda. If you noticed, I added very little commentary to this article and simply let the documented facts speak for themselves. There is much, much more that could be added in this regard.
Is Barack Hussein Obama a Muslim working to bring about Sharia law in the United States? That is for you to decide. But at the rate America is crumbling, you better hurry making up your mind.
