The average person would, by Barak Obama's past statements and deeds, characterize him as a Muslim. However, he has made it possible to further characterize him as a Shi'ite Muslim. Over the weekend in an interview with the New York Times, the POTUS closed the door on doubts of his allegiance as he discussed the threats Saudi Arabia and other Sunni nations in the MidEast will face in the future.“I think the biggest threats that they face may not be coming from Iran invading,” said Obama. “It’s going to be from dissatisfaction inside their own countries.” While the president’s remarks were mostly overlooked, as could be expected, by the U.S. and Western media, the comments received headline coverage in news outlets run by Iran and by the Hezbollah jihadist organization.Obama sat down Saturday with Times’ columnist Thomas L. Friedman, who asked about “protecting our Sunni Arab allies, like Saudi Arabia.” Obama explained he thinks “that our friends in the region, our traditional Sunni states, have some very real external threats, but they also have some internal threats.”Obama warned of a possible Arab Spring-style revolution in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and other Sunni-majority countries. “I think the biggest threats that they face may not be coming from Iran invading. It’s going to be from dissatisfaction inside their own countries. That’s a tough conversation to have, but it’s one that we have to have.”The somewhat muted and caustic undertones in Obama's voice when he speaks of S.A., Jordan, Egypt and the other Sunni countries, belies the animosity he holds for anything not Shi'ite. From my own experience in the MidEast, if internal strife blossoms in these Sunni countries, it will be engendered by Shi'ite interlopers. And I'm sure you've noticed how Obama goes out of his way to protect Iran. ( see: the latest proposed treaty. )Obama was widely criticized in 2009 for not interfering when Iran brutalized civilian opposition protesters challenging the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who tallied nearly 60 percent amid widespread reports of vote irregularities. His lack of action and protest during this display of brutality affirms the roots of his allegiance.This is the man who occupies the White House.Jim Morris
