MORE ON BARACK HUSSEIN MUHAMMAD OBAMA

Letter from Ruth Matar (Women in Green) Jerusalem
Thursday, May 29, 2008

Dear Friends,

I received an avalanche of email replies to last week’s Letter from Jerusalem, supporting what I had written. Only one letter was hostile. The message was as follows: “Who are you to put down an American candidate for president for meeting with the enemies?”

Okay, here goes: I am co-leader together with Nadia Matar of a political movement in Israel named (WOMEN FOR ISRAEL’S TOMORROW). We have been fighting for Israel’s survival as a Jewish state since the Oslo Accords of 1993.

The name we gave our organization tells you exactly what our agenda is. Our fight is for Israel’s future.  We want Israel to remain a haven, now and in the future, for Jews from all over the world.

My personal background: I am a holocaust survivor who escaped Hitler’s death machine as one of the children on a Kindertransport. Subsequently I was fortunate enough to become a naturalized American citizen. Because I am an American citizen, I have a perfect right to comment on Obama’s candidacy.

Why did I write last week’s article? Because I am seriously concerned about Barack Obama’s attitude toward Israel.

*  *  *

I want to share with you some of the responses I received to last weeks article.

1.  “I totally agree.”  - J.K.

2.  “We’re praying with you that Obama doesn’t win the Presidency!”  - D.C.

3.  “I couldn’t agree with you more.  He is a very scary person, and I do believe his change is not what the people are thinking.”  - S.W.

4.  “Can a good Muslim be a good American?

This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.

The following is his reply:

Theologically - no. . . .
Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia

Religiously - no. . . .
Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam
(Quran, 2:256) (Koran)

Scripturally - no. . .
Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

Geographically - no ... . .
Because his allegiance is to Mecca ,
to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially - no. . .
Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him
To make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically - no. . .
Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders),
who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.

Domestically - no. . .
Because he is instructed to marry four Women and
beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34)

Intellectually - no. . .
Because he cannot accept the American Constitution
since it is based on Biblical principles and
he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically - no. . . .
Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran
does not allow freedom of religion and expression.
Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.
Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually - no. . . .
Because when we declare \'one nation under God,\'
the Christian\'s God is loving and kind,
while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father,
nor is he ever called love in The Quran\'s 99 excellent names.

Therefore after much study and deliberation..
Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. - - - They obviously cannot be both \'good\' Muslims and good Americans.

Call it what you wish..it\'s still the truth.   You had better believe it.
The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and
our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.. . ...

And Barack Hussein Obama, a Muslim, wants to be our President?
You have GOT to be kidding!
Wake up America !

Obama even says if he wins the election,
he will be sworn in on the Quran---not a Bible!

Footnote:
He was sworn in on the Quran for his current office and
he refuses to pledge allegiance to the United States
or put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is played!!!

The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within.....
Hello!!!!  Having a Muslem president would seem to fit the bill!
Would you trust this man with our national secrets?????”  - G.S.

5.  “DEAR RUTH,  THANKS FOR YOUR NOTES ON  B.HUSSEIN OBAMA....  I AND ALL WHO I KNOW, AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY, HE IS DANGEROUS, AND I COULD TELL YOU MORE ABOUT IT THAN YOU MAY ALREADY KNOW.  THE SO CALLED CHURCH THAT HE\'S A PART OF FOR SOME 20 YEARS, HAS ALWAYS BEEN ANTI-SEMITIC FOR DECADES, THE \'WHITE VERSION\' AS WELL AS THE BLACK BRANCHES OF THAT DENOMINATION.  I LEARNED OF THEM YEARS AGO, BEFORE ANY OF US EVEN HEARD OF OBAMA, BECAUSE THEY USED TO LOBBY CONGRESS TO TRY & MAKE AMERICA STOP SUPPORTING ISRAEL, AND CHANGE TO SUPPORT THE PALESTINIANS AND OTHER ENEMIES OF ISRAEL.  I\'M NOT SURE IF THEY STILL DO THAT TODAY, BECAUSE I\'VE FALLEN OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE SOURCES OF THOSE FACTS.  BUT SINCE THEY SUPPORT LOUIS FARRAKHAN, I\'M SURE THEY DO ALL IN THEIR POWER TO CARRY ON IN THEIR TWISTED WAYS.  I INFORMED EVERYONE I KNOW OF, BACK WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE NAME OF HIS \'CHURCH\', WHAT KIND OF BACKGROUND RECORD THEY HAD THEN.  THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO.”  -S.N., Nashville

6.  “Your fears are well-founded. Non of the Presidential candidates are going to do anything but support a One World Order, which includes the elimination of the Jewish state as a Jewish state, with the Vatican in control of Jerusalem.

Obama has strong Trilateral Commission ties through Brzezinski, as well as Council on Foreign relations ties:

White House hopeful Barack Obama\'s foreign policy adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski (Trilateral Commission), is preparing a major, new anti-Israel initiative: an international campaign to pressure the Jewish state into disclosing and dismantling its nuclear arsenal as an inducement to Islamist Iran to permanently end its suspect uranium enrichment program. The campaign will seek to brand democratic Israel as an American North Korea--meaning, a rogue nuclear state--in order to isolate and ultimately defeat and actually destroy the country.

7.  “Dear Nadia and Ruth,

Your email is on the ball. Michael Savage, a Jewish radio talk show
host, stated that the "mass" of 75,000 people that turned out in
Oregon to hear Obama, reminded him of Hitler, yimach shimo, addressing
the throngs as well in Germany. It gives one chills up one\'s spine.

Michael Savage, also continued, that this word "change" that Obama
keeps talking about (with no specifics, no one knows what he really
means or stands for) reminds him of the "change" during the time of
Stalin and Hitler, yimach shimo.

Very scary indeed. Unfortunately, there are die hard Jewish Democrats
who will vote for Hillary or Obama. How do we impress upon them that
McCain is the best of the choices. He is mature and more experienced.

Also, Jews should be wary of Obama\'s past pastor, Jeremiah Wright\'s
assocation with the Nation of Islam, Farrakan\'s organization. They
provided security protection when Wright addressed the NAACP recently.
Jeremiah Wright is anti-American, anti-Semite and hates Israel as
well.

Yes, we are faced with two modern day Haman\'s- Ahmedinejad from Iran
and Jeremiah Wright.

Keep up your great work and PLEASE enlighten Jews that Obama is bad
for Israel and bad for America.”  - J. & L.S.

8.  “OBAMA HAS A LOT TO OFFER...HE WAS EDUCATED IN MUSLIM SCHOOLS AND HAS A FATHER WHO IS MUSLIM AND A STEP-DAD WHO WAS.
HIS MINISTER IS IN THICK WITH FARACON...WHAT MORE COULD WE ASK...
HILLARY IS LYING SO MUCH AND IT IS BELIEVED SHE HELPED DIG UP SOME OF THE MESS ON OBAMA.  AMERICA COULD NOT STAND 4 YEARS OF THE CLINTONS AGAIN....NO MORE, NO MORE....McCAIN IS THE ONLY RECOURSE.”  - S.B.

9.  “Shalom  I share the same fears and have conveyed to my family and friends that I am not worried about living here but I am worried about their children and grandchildren living in good old America/Canada!  And as you are saying, come the elections, we will see a new America \'who want change\' and to divest themselves of \'the burden of Israel\' .
But it is their futures that I worry more about in terms of security, and our spiritual future is my current worry, But whereas we have hope, the direction that N America is moving is scary. I hear my father\'s z"l words when I asked why he left Poland way before the war and as a result I live and many, many of our family perished, in that "They loved being Germans/Polish Jews, more than they loved being Jewish".  American Jews are comfortable and my fear is that Hashem will once again \'need\' to wake His people up from their slumber to realize that America is not our home and a truly Jewish life can only be lived here (no matter how much craziness there is and toiling to change our leaders (political and religious) direction).”  -P.A.

10.  “I don\'t know if I sent this to you, but it is another of many reports that have come in.
Obama a Muslim? ­ Missionaries in Kenya Say Yes

The following information was made available by Norma Grooten, an American Missionary to Kenya. I am including it in my column in Freedom €™s Phoenix just as it came to me without any editing.

Each one should make up their own mind as to how they will respond to this warning. In my opinion, if Mr. Obama is elected President, he will take the oath of office on the Bible not the Koran, because if he really is a Muslin at heart, it will be a part of the subterfuge.

At the bottom of the article is a picture of Mrs. Grooten with some of the people that she works with in Kenya. She went to Kenya after her husband Bert, who was one of the original leaders in the unregistered church movement, died.

Following is the warning from Loren and Celeste Davis.

We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now, and know his [Obama €™s] family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence (over 350,000), and I don\'t know the last count of the dead. Obama under "friends of Obama" gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign, who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in East Germany. He has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election. Obama and Raila speak daily. As we watch Obama rise in the US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, crying rigged election if he doesn\'t win and possibly cause a race war in America.
What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a muslim and he IS a racist and this is a fulfillment of the 911 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad. All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the mulsim infiltration into their countries. By the way. His true name is Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama. Won\'t that sound sweet to our enemies as they swear him in on the Koran!
God Bless you.
 Pray for us here in Kenya. We are still fighting for our nation to withstand the same kind of assault that every nation, including America, is fighting. Takeover from the outside to fit the new world order. As believers, this means we will be the first targets. Here in Kenya, not one mosque was burned down, but hundreds of churches were burned down, some with people in them, burned alive.
I will send you a newsletter we sent out in February documenting in a more cohesive manner what I\'ve tried to say in a few paragraphs.”  - C. & L.D.

11.  “Dear Ruth:
Although I agree absolutely with your position, I also am greatly concerned for the entire line-up of candidates as far as their perceived policy positions are concerned.

Certainly Obama\'s inexperience would work against meaningful international decisions, especially in regard to Israel\'s security and continued existance. Honestly, he strikes me as a little cocky, and too smooth!

However, Hiliary Clinton as President, which at the moment seems unlikely, leaves one just as frightened.  She exhibits a left-leaning policy platform that would be questionable both for Israel as well as for dealing with rogue terrorist regimes such as Iran.  It scares me to realize there are those who would vote for her simply because they want to prove a social point by electing a woman, rather than vote for the one, whether male or female, who would be best for the position.  Even if her policies were more right-wing, which is questionable, she would unfortunately already be at a disadvantage in dealing with Islamic world leaders simply because she is a woman!

McCain may be a better choice, but unfortunately his persona has not been covered well by the media.  His name seldom is mentined by anyone, and whenever it is, his supposed "far right-wing" stance is presented, certainly erroneously, as negative!  Most of the voting public will go for someone who has a higher, and more positively perceived profile.

To be honest, it appears there are no real viable contenders for Presidency of the USA that would support a Zionist Israel without concessions to the Palestinians and Islamic regimes as well.  Not only does that not bode well for Israel, but for the stability of the entire world scene!  No matter how one cuts it, the future picture may turn pretty bleak for everyone unless new leadership, both in the USA as well as in Israel, with a godly perspective and understanding of the Divine Will for Israel, steps up to the plate before the next presidential election; and time for that is running out!

The next election possibilities certainly leaves one with shivers up one\'s spine!”          -A.M.

12.  “Dearest Ruth,
Do you think G-d has [hardened the hearts and minds of the people in America] such as He did Pharaoh’s so He can bring in His end times?”  - R.S.

*     *     *

As you can see from the above selection of the numerous letters I received, you are definitely not alone in worrying about Barack Hussein Muhammad Obama becoming the American President.

WE HAVE BEEN WARNED!

With Blessings and Love for Israel,

Ruth Matar
