Obama’s Ties to the Nation of Islam and Libya

In 1984, Louis Farrakhan and Reverend Jeremiah Wright traveled to Libya to be the guests of Muammar al-Gaddafi in Libya. This visit led to Farrakhan becoming the recipient of an interest free $5 million loan in 1985. Nice terms, if you can get them.

Fast forward to the 2008 presidential campaign and you have Wright being quoted in a WND article:

“When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gaddafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”

The close ties to Libya become more evident, the deeper we dig. Later in the same year that Farrakhan received the $5 million loan, Gaddafi spoke via satellite to Farrakhan’s Savior’s Day Convention in Chicago, and reportedly told Farrakhan supporters he was prepared to provide weapons to a black army in the U.S. to destroy “white America.”

In October 1995, Gaddafi reportedly called Farrakhan with congratulations on the success of the Million Man March. Gaddafi was said to have assured Farrakhan that together “we will unite our capabilities and efforts to achieve this.”

According to reports in 1996 from Libya’s news agency, JANA, Farrakhan and Gaddafi agreed to work together to mobilize “oppressed blacks, Arabs, Muslims and Red Indians” to help reshape U.S. foreign policy.

Gaddafi said that until his alliance with the Nation of Islam, “our confrontation with America was like a fight against a fortress from outside.”

He asserted his alliance with Farrakhan provides him with “a breach to enter into this fortress and confront it.”

Farrakhan went to Libya for multiple other events. He was the recipient in 1996 of the Gaddafi Human Rights Award, which came with a $250,000 prize. Farrakhan accepted the prize despite U.S. sanctions on Libya.

So it is evident that Gaddafi is closely associated with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. But how does Obama enter the picture?

Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama both attended Farrakhan’s Million Man March on Washington. Rev. Willie Barrow who is a member of Obama’s official campaign Faith Outreach Team, is a close friend of Farrakhan’s, an ardent NOI supporter and an Obama superdelegate.

Farrakhan stated in a 2002 interview he met with Barrow to devise his Nation of Islam platforms.

Marxist activist Cornel West, an adviser to Farrakhan, also had been an adviser to Obama’s 2008 campaign and is a close Obama associate and personal friend.

During the period of Obama’s attendance at Wright’s Trinity United Church, which practices controversial Black Liberation Theology ideology, the Chicago church was openly allied with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Wright gave Farrakhan his 2007 Empowerment Award. Farrakhan delivered multiple guest lectures at the church.

It would seem that Obama picked Wright’s church for a reason.

Wright has been involved in Farrakhan initiatives and labeled him “one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century” during a national address to the media in April at which Nation of Islam officials were invited guests.

Obama has appeared at least three times on the cover of Trumpet magazine, founded by Wright. The magazine, to which Obama last year granted a lengthy, exclusive interview, regularly hails Farrakhan.

Obama’s face was featured on the cover of a 2006 issue of Trumpet alongside Farrakhan’s image.

In spite of the MSM all but ignoring the many red flags of Obama’s background, a 2004 picture surfaced of Michelle Obama posing with Louis Farrakhan and Obama adviser Willie Barrow. It was a luncheon for the Rainbow/Push Coalition that Barrow holds the title of Chairman Emeritus.

So what has Obama’s allegiance to Farrakhan, Wright and Gaddafi brought the United States? As reported by ynet news, in a recent interview Muammar al-Gaddafi revealed how he feels about the subject, emphasis mine:

Speaking in the Libyan city of Sirt at an event marking the 24th anniversary of an American attack on Libya, he said, “At the time, we were the target of the American cannon, the American navy challenged us in the gulf of Sirt and attacked us all along Libya’s shores. America tested Libya, and the Libyan people resisted the large country, but today, thank God, the difference is great.”

He said, “Now, ruling America is a black man from our continent, an African from Arab descent, from Muslim descent, and this is something we never imagined – that from Reagan we would get to Barakeh Obama.

Gaddafi stressed that Obama’s presidency is “a major historical gain” and said, “He is someone I consider a friend. He knows he is a son of Africa. Regardless of his African belonging, he is of Arab Sudanese descent, or of Muslim descent. He is a man whose policy should be supported, and he should be assisted in implementing it in any way possible, since he is now leaning towards peace.”

Obama has done more than just pay lip service to the Muslim world and to Gaddafi himself to earn praise from the dictator.

From the American Thinker:

Last year, right around the time Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi called Obama “our son,” Obama earmarked $400,000 for two Libyan charities. The money was divided between two foundations run by Gaddafi’s children; Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation, run by his son Saif, and Wa Attassimou, run by his daughter Aicha.  What noble causes did our tax dollars potentially help support thanks to Obama’s generosity?

Funding of the ship Amalthea:  The Amalthea sailed to Israel with the intent of breaking the Israeli blockade on Hamas.  It carried aid for a pseudo humanitarian crisis and supporters who were said to be “keen on expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people in the plight amidst the siege imposed on Gaza.”  The ship was funded by Saif Gaddafi’s charity, Gaddafi International Charity and Development Association.  Obama’s friend, Bill Ayers, joined attempt #1 against Israel’s blockade on Hamas.  Saif joined attempt #2.  One has to wonder which of Obama’s friends will step up to the plate at attempt #3.

The article goes on to remind us about US State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley’s comments about Gaddafi and how they were rebuked:

As long as we are connecting the dots between Obama and Libya, now seems a good time to remember that the state department issued an official apology to Libya after spokesman P.J. Crowley made disparaging comments about Gaddafi’s call for jihad against Switzerland.  Apparently Crowley spoke on instinct instead of running his reaction by Libya’s “son” first.  As an Obamian spinmeister, Crowley learned that one doesn’t speak ill of “family.”

How much longer will the American people put up with Obama’s patronage to the dictators of the Muslim world? Speaking for myself and a large number of Americans, 2012 cannot get here fast enough.

  5. Thank you for your article it confirms my suspicions about President Obama. As an African American it has been very difficult to discuss my concerns and apprehensions about Obama. It’s as if my friends have turned a ‘blind eye’ to whatever he does. His administration’s policies are just plain antichrist! There I said it, he’s no Christian in my book. The Bible says that you judge a tree by it’s fruit, and his fruit is just plain bad. In 2008,I didn’t vote for him because, it was eerie the way EVERYBODY loved him. I mean people all over the world and even the Muslim community embraced him. That was kind of creepy to me, and a MAJOR RED FLAG.

    Plus, I’m all to familiar with Islam, as my sister converted over 30 year ago. I’ve always suspected that he was a Muslim. His associations with Mr. Wright [can’t call him Reverend] are a major Red Flag. As a matter of fact its red flags, bell and whistles!

    My sister was indoctrinated in this cult over 30 years ago. I’ve been praying for her for over 30 years, and will never give up on her, but in my opinion NOI was birthed from the pit of you know what. In my opinion, anyone associated with NOI,has truly made an alliance with darkness.
    I’m with you, I can’t wait for the 2012 election!

    P.S. my sons[28 & 33] didn’t vote for him either! Believe you me, not all African American’s voted for Obama.

    • Glad to hear that you didn’t get hoodwinked, Valerie. My 85 year old father tried to vote for him, but the ballot confused him and he ended up not voting for President at all. He voted because it was Democrat, not because of who Obama was. I keep trying to tell my Dad that the Democratic Party he grew up with prior to WWII no longer exists. He still thinks Republicans are for big business only and that Dems are for the little guy. Nowadays, it is just the opposite.

    • Well Dan Crosby, why don’t you show me where I twisted reality on this one?

      Please, show me anything that I wrote that was inaccurate.

      I know you cannot do that because I researched my facts before I wrote my completely accurate article.

      But come back and prove me wrong.

  7. it’s hilarious watching white americans freak about black americans in organized groups like this, As if american blacks have ever banded together as an organized group to commit atrocities against fellow americans based on their race the way White Christian Americans have in US history.

    Fear of slave uprisal is still alive and well

    • Yeah, black Americans have never “banded together as an organized group to commit atrocities on fellow [A]mericans based on their race…”

      Several Black Panthers are now extremist Muslims and cause celebres in the Islamofascist community, like convicted, imprisoned cop-killer Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin a/k/a H. Rap Brown. Al-Amin, who bragged, “Violence is as American as cherry pie,” killed one sheriff’s deputy and wounded another in March 2000. The group–so vicious, so violent–even savagely tortured and murdered its own. The disgusting way they tortured and dismembered their living victims was so sick, it rivals that of the Islamic terrorists we are fighting now.Source

      And King Samir Shabazz is a paragon of virtue when he says he wants to kill him some white cracker babies…

      In addition to charges of voter intimidation, King Samir Shabazz, was also caught on video saying: “I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker. I hate them.” Standing on South Street in Philadelphia, Shabazz continued, “We didn’t come out here to play today. There’s too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white dirty cracker whores on our arm. And we call ourselves black men.” He then targeted an interracial couple happening by on the street: “What the hell is wrong with you man…with a white girl on your damned arm.”

      And he shouted, “You want freedom? You’re going to have to kill some crackers. You going to have to kill some of their babies!”Source

      You must be right about this, racism only goes one direction…

      Come on back if you want to talk more about this, with your in-depth knowledge of white racism, I am sure you have a lot to teach.

      /sarcasm off

  8. Interesting- especially in light of events after the article was written…Ghaddafi dead and his regime toppled,with US air support; then Benghazi…another ‘friend’ of Obama’s tossed under the bus…then Egypt, now Syria…the Obama foreign policy is surreal.

    • Yes Leonid, I was thinking the same thing. I can never get an answer from any Dem/Lib when I ask what exactly his foreign policy is.
