Exposed: Obama’s bait and switch religious affiliation


By: Jim Kouri, CPP

Facing rapidly falling poll numbers and the prospect of losing his edge in both houses of the U.S. Congress, President Barack Obama provided a photo opportunity for the fawning news media of his attendance at an Episcopal Church.

As if following a script written by Obama’s speechmakers, the denizens of U.S. newsrooms reported that the President and First Lady, as well as their kids, attended a service at Saint John’s Episcopal Church. What the Amen choir of reporters failed to mention is that there was a specific reason for Obama’s church attendance.

Besides his attempt to stifle reports of his questionable religious practices including his failure to routinely attend a Christian church on Sundays, President Obama chose to attend a particular service at a particular church to hear a particular member of the clergy give a particular message.

It is reported by this writer’s colleague, Los Angeles-based talk show host Chuck Wilder, that Dr. Ziad Asali, a Muslim and the founder and president of the American Task Force on Palestine, was the guest speaker at the church service attended by the Obamas.

Dr. Asali was there to lecture on the subject of Prospects of the two-state solution in the Middle-East, according to Wilder, who is heard coast-to-coast on Cable Radio Network.

According to their own web site, the ATFP is a “non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, DC.” The web site claims the organization is “dedicated to advocating that it is in the American national interest to promote an end to the conflict in the Middle East through a negotiated agreement that provides for two states — Israel and Palestine — living side by side in peace and security.”

Dr. Ziad J. Asali himself is identified as “a long-time activist on Middle East issues” who provided testimony to congressional committees to about Palestinian interests, increased U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority, and his claims of “Israel’s disproportionate use of force” in Gaza.

Each year, the Palestinian Authority is given more than a billion dollars in aid. The United States alone last year gave them $575 million of US taxpayers’ money to people who siphoned off millions of dollars and left scraps for the Palestinian people living in poverty.

(During his reign of terror, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat alone stole millions of dollars and stashed the money in Swiss bank accounts. And the world — including the US — looked the other way at best, or winked at Arafat’s larceny at worst.)

Now under President Obama, United States aid for Palestinians — especially taxpayers cash — falling into the hands of Hamas or Hezbollah to be used to purchase weapons continues to be a primary concern for many American officeholders and citizens.

The U.S. government is one of the largest donors to Palestinians. This assistance is provided through the U.S. Agency for International Development and through contributions to international organizations, primarily the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

And the US government has always been aware of this scenario, yet each year the US continues to fork over more than a quarter-billion dollars of taxpayer money to ingrates, bandits, and Islamofascists.

“When some Americans question Obama’s religious affiliation, they are ridiculed and vilified by the news media elites. However, with such incidents as described herein occurring repeatedly involving Obama and Islam, is it any wonder there is confusion regarding his religious persuasion?” said political strategist Mike Baker.
