President Obama recently wrote in glowing terms about “Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” This must cause any rational and educated person to question either the integrity or the education of the Mr. Obama.

Let’s look at the reality that is Islam.


Islamic sharia law supports stoning women to death for the crime of having sex before marriage.  It also supports the death penalty for homosexuality.

Is this the “justice” which Mr. Obama is praising?


The World Intellectual Property office shows 9,591 patents originating in tiny Israel in 2008.  Let’s compare that with the top Islamic nations:

  • Malaysia: 1,287
  • Saudi Arabia: 288
  • Uzbekistan: 270
  • Morocco: 194
  • Kyrgyzstan: 148
  • Kazakhstan: 77
  • Egypt: 69
  • Iran: 50
  • Tunisia: 26
  • Kuwait: 23
  • Brunei: 22
  • Indonesia: 21
  • Lebanon: 21
  • Pakistan: 19
  • Jordan: 18

Is this the kind of progress which Mr. Obama is praising?


Islam is intolerant of other religions, and yet demands tolerance from those same religions.

The Quran clearly instructs Muslims to “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low. ”

Is fighting against believers in all other religions until they are “brought low” and “pay the tribute readily” the kind of “tolerance” that Mr. Obama is praising?

Dignity of All Human Beings

Islam respects the dignity of all human beings, provided that those human beings are males who hold the Muslim faith.

The Quran teaches that men are above women and that the word of a woman is worth only half as much as the worth of a man. It also encourages men to scourge (beat) their wives if they fail to obey and please them, “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.”

Is this the dignity of all human beings which Mr. Obama was praising?

It appears clear to me that there are only two possible explanations for the “diversity” between Mr. Obama’s words and the truth.  Either Mr. Obama is extraordinarily delusional or he is a bald-faced liar.  Neither explanation provides much comfort, as Mr. Obama is currently the head of the largest armed force in the world.
