Muslim World Losing Faith in Obama

Christopher Torchia, The Washington Post

ISTANBUL — Euphoria swept the world after the election of President Obama, a symbol of hope and yearning for compromise after years of war and resentment toward his predecessor’s style and policies. Today, after an electoral rebuke at home, Obama is still popular among America’s traditional allies, but his star power among Muslims – a focus of his international outreach – is fading…

A summer survey by the German Marshall Fund in the United States found that 78 percent of respondents in the European Union approved of how Obama was handling international policy, a slight dip from last year. The same study showed Obama’s approval plunging by nearly half to 28 percent in Turkey, reflecting traditional anti-American sentiment in a predominantly Muslim country that is a NATO ally. Opposition to the Iraq war was fierce in Turkey, whose parliament denied permission to U.S. troops to use bases on its soil in the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

Similarly, a survey by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, released in June, found that Obama’s approval ratings were generally positive outside the Muslim world, although not quite as high as in 2009. However, the poll found that in Egypt, the percentage of Muslims expressing confidence in Obama fell 10 percent to 31 percent over the same period; from 33 percent to 23 percent in Turkey; and from 13 percent to eight percent among Pakistani Muslims.

    Hey. Who does the phony bama report-to anyway? To our Country or to muhammed muslim polls? Perhaps he should stay in India on his financial marketing trip…on a new leaf? Did he get hired-on as some Wall Street community marketing director? If muslim polls think he has done a good job…then we know they are behind bama's vile, underhanded (recall, the koran says it is OK to lie to the infidels) misdoings. bama should crawl under some Himalayan rock and stay there.

    I recently read Joel Richardson's fine book, "The Islamic AntiChrist". This should be required reading for every American Christian. This book extensively quotes the Koran or Qu'ran and includes published interpretations by many noted Islamic scholars. This book, "The Islamic AntiChrist" details what Muslims worldwide TRULY believe and strive to promote. "The Islamic AntiChrist" is so well documented that no charge can be made that it takes any part of the Koran out of context.
    Religion of "peace"….bah humbug.

    A pig with lipstick is still a pig. Obama is a total disaster, and needs to be impeached. I also beleive that the new congress needs to look into where this man was actually born, just due to the fact that he is definitely hiding something by not producing a hospital birth certificate, hiding his so called scholarly record, and foremost, he had to have another passport other than American when he made his travels while young.

    OOPS —- I forgot to mention that Obummer's granny, Sarah Obama, had stated previously that he was born in Kenya. Funny thing, now nobody is allowed to get near her. Something is not rotten in Denmark, it is stinking to high heaven right in the white house.

  5. How can they say he is popular with our traditional allies when he snubs England primer, talks against Israel and the Russians would not even shake his hand? Let's hope he is paying for the millions or more likely the billions this trip to India is costing. 800 rooms reserved in elegant hotel, his total staff from the White House and all else he takes.

  6. Send this closet Muslim home to his Kenya and the Muslim world !!

    At the UN this week the Gay people went to them about how we teat them here in the U.S.A. Don't they know how the Muslin Koran or Qu'ran book feels about them? Sharia law: homosexuality is punishable by death.
    Then the idiot was telling us how to treat our women, we were not good to them….Hmmm. This coming from leadrs that …Under Sharia law, a man can easily divorce his wife, but a woman cannot divorce her husband without his consent… Sharia law: Muslim women are forbidden from marrying a non-Muslim…Sharia law: the testimony of a woman in court is worth half the value of a man’s testimony…Sharia law: Muslim men have permission to beat their wives for disobedience…Sharia law: adultery is punishable by lashing and stoning to death. Plus! Under shariah law a Muslim girl can be contracted for marriage at any age. Hummm I wonder if Obama girls has been contracted out already. The marriage can be consummated when she is eight or nine. Under Sharia a man may marry up to four wives (simultaneously).

    In fact, up until the 1960s, before the Ted. Kennedy bill, the makeup of the immigration stream had always matched the existing makeup of America (meaning no Moslems!) What we have now is a vicious legacy of the "liberalism – a mental disorde…r" (Savage's) To restore America means to rid of Islam. In stages. To begin with, burn and shred korans routinely. Close mosques. Stop Moslem immigration. To repair a damage, alas, takes much more than to incur it.

    The Muslims, as far back as WWI, teamed up with ANYONE (any culture) that sought to destroy anything WESTERN or EASTERN (built on anything other than ISLAM). Muslims team up with all potential dictators, because it's easier to wrest power f…rom few than it is from MANY. Once America becomes a Dictatorship or a small Oligarchical Tyranny it will be much easier for the Muslim to establish Shariah Law. When Shariah is established, then the rest falls in to place. They will WIN if Obama is not impeached and we if we don't make laws against SHARIAH's Totalitarian Theocracy. I believe that it is imperative to impeach this Muslim Communist Obama.

    Did you know that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are conspiring with the anti-gun United Nations to force European-style gun control on American citizens? I wish I could tell you this is the plot to the next great summer novel, but it’s real… And it’s frightening.

      THIS is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN IN AMERICA!! NOT NOW, NOT EVER! THERE ARE TOO MANY AMERICANS WHO ALREADY OWN GUNS AND WOULD RATHER DIE THAN TURN THEM OVER TO OBAMA'S GOVT. so there would be much blood shed should obama try to enforce this 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL" ACTION. With a new Conservative House of Representatives (many of whom are hunters, etc.), I don't believe they would ever allow anything like that to pass their House…NO MATTER WHAT OBAMA OR THE BAD WITCH OF THE EAST, HILARY, WOULD TRY. Hilary has her priorities tweaked…as usual!!

      • Eagles Flight says:

        However, as obama's popularity diminishes in Muslim countries like Turkey, Pakistan, etc., America will SEE more terrorist acts being done. Think about this: all the muslim Islamic countries felt good having a "brother" sitting in the White House performing his daily DIRT to America, so they haven't had to do anything to express their anger…obama was already doing it for them. Now that he is losing power to control events happening to the U.S., Islam is starting to squirm & feel helpless & frustrated. Mark my words, there will be some Terrorist event happening soon in America to show Islam's disapproval of our new Conservative control of Congress! Watch out Muslims…change is in the Wind. You ARE not calling the shots any more — Americans are. Oklahoma already banned Sharia Law & other states will follow!!!

        Eagles Flight, I agreewith you 100%, I have 9 guns myself and i'm 67 yr old,serve in the 101thin 66 and 67, so i look at it this way, at my age I'll take front line when it all starts and give the young ones a look at how protecting our freedomhas a price tagon it.Guns protect citizens from governments that abuse their power. From never ending spending binges to unbridled corruption and rampant tax hikes, it's clear that our government is already oppressing us. If our guns are gone, there will be no end to the abuse from our gangster government. If this treaty is implemented, the free will of you and every other American will be destroyed.Together, we can preserve the Constitutional rights our Founding Fathers intended our people to have forever.Thank you my brother. I know I can count on you.
        Sincerely, Herb

    We need leaders who will honor religious freedom, protect families, and venerate life! A rising tide of anti-Christian bigotry, thinly veiled incongressional initiatives like the ones we've seenproposed since the Obama Administration …and the 111thCongress came into power, threatens to push Christiansto the sidelines of society. Our federal courts are being filled with liberal-leaning,activist judges. And Barack Obama has appointed scores of pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, anti-Christian, radical "czars,"thereby effectively circumventing Congress and creating a shadow government. Further, left-leaning elements of the 111th Congress want to gag people of faith across the nation with bills andmandates designed to silence the voices of churches,Christian organizations, and patriotic Americans whoresist socialist tyranny.

  12. George Soros is just one of many corrupt sobs who are planning the downfall of America. Glen Beck is having a show exposing this thug on Tuesday, Nov 9 at 5pm. I reccomend everyone watch or DVR the program to see what this thug is up to. He needs to be stopped!

You can file suits as much as you want — the American people are the ones you will have to deal with — NOT the Courts! You've overstayed your Welcome!

    Obama is beginning to 'Flail' like a drowning man against the 'Onset of Reality', the look in his eyes and the sluggish, depressed body language are beginning to show his desperation and inner rage. The only time Obama is able to 'Grin', is when he is 'Bowing' to an Islamic Radical Country. The only times that are enjo…yable to Obama is when a group of 'his Worshipers' are applauding him and screaming 'Yes We Can'. Right now he is a 'Ticking Time Bomb' of Narcissistic rage and he will explode publicly as his insane ideas are ridiculed and rejected. Now that the 'Referendum Results on him are in even the Democrats "Blame" Barack Obama for the disastrous results – Barack Obama may go over the edge. And if he go over you all have better watch out this winter. All hell is going to break out.This country will be split worse than it was during the civil war, Obama has seen to that. You only have to read the blogs to see it. I know of one brother that will stan with me, right Eagles Flight.
