Pak leader wants Obama to be caliph

I wrote an update to this article with more information and also end time implications, here

In a “let’s just get this over with” moment, a Pakistani Minister wants Obama to be ”leader of all Muslims”
The news on MSN’s site is reported today that “A Pakistani minister wants US President Barack Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero in New York and become the “Amir-ul-Momineen” or Caliph of Muslims. Minister of State for Industries Ayatullah Durrani, who belongs to the ruling Pakistan People’s Party, said the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr festival, expected to be observed on September 11, would be a “golden opportunity” for Obama to offer Eid prayers and declare himself the leader of all Muslims. “In this way, all the problems of the Muslim world would be solved,” Durrani told The Nation newspaper. Durrani, a former member of the Pakistan Ideological Council, contended that the Muslim world is in “dire need” of a Caliph and occupying this distinguished slot would provide Obama “exemplary titles” like “Mullah Barack Hussain Obama” or “Allama Obama”. He said: “The time is approaching fast. Barack Hussain Obama must act now. This is a golden opportunity, Muslims badly need it.” Obama”s elevation to the Islamic Caliphate would be the “key to success, he claimed but did not offer any explanation for his remarks. ”Ground Zero” is the former site of the fallen twin towers of the World Trade Center.”

The Minister did not elaborate on exactly what the “Golden Opportunity is,” why that opportunity has to be now, or how Obama being dubbed a Caliph would solve the Muslims’ problems.

Thsi story will go a long way toward cementing the rumor that Obama is indeed a Muslim. The evidence is hard against him. He has a Muslim name, was born to a Muslim father, which Islamic tradition holds, makes you Muslim forever. He states in his biography that he attended a predominately Muslim school when he lived in Jakarta as a teenager. Obama revealed that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” The Times’ Nicholos Kristof wrote Obama recited, “with a first-class [Arabic] accent,” the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer. The first few lines of the call to prayer state:
“Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! I witness that there is no god but Allah. I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that Muhammad is his prophet… “

Obama makes no such nostalgic claims about his alleged conversion to Christianity, nor has anything to say about any precious time he has spent with His Savior, Jesus. He is pro-abortion. He is anti-prayer. He is NOT a friend to Israel. All these things add up to being a non-Christian, but there is something that makes me not so sure he is a Muslim. Obama drinks.

The false prophet Muhammad instructed his followers, at the time, to avoid any intoxicating substances — (paraphrased) “if it intoxicates in a large amount, it is forbidden even in a small amount.” For this reason, most observant Muslims avoid alcohol in any form, even small amounts that are sometimes used in cooking. The Muslims are very serious about abstinence from alcohol.

However, it is obvious that Obama is no friend to Jesus. It is obvious that he would really rather Israel was wiped from the face of the earth. He again used the phrase this week of Israel’s “occupation“. Personally, I think he is simply deeply held by satan to perpetrate chaos on the world in the last days. He would closely ally himself with whatever religion seems the most convenient for him to perpetrate said chaos. My opinion.

On the other hand, Obama bowed deeply to the Saudi King, an unnecessary diplomatic move. His string of diplomatic snubs against the UK and actually deliberately humiliating Israel, our staunchest allies, while showing greater deference to the king of a despotic regime that persecutes Christians bespeaks much of where Obama heart and mind lay.

However it is extremely curious that Ayatullah Durrani would go to these lengths to make these statements. Is Durrani proclaiming Obama as a candidate for Caliph as a punishment for our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? Not likely, because those wars have already been going on a long time and are actually winding down. Is he trying to rile up the conservative Christians against Obama? The conservatives are already completely suspicious of everything Obama does. Is he advancing the cause of Sharia in the US? This last one is always a likelihood. What other modus operendi might the Ayatullah have in making this curious claim to install Obama as a Caliph?

What is a caliph?
A Caliph is the head of state in a Caliphate, and the title for the leader of the Islamic Ummah, an Islamic community ruled by the Shari’ah. It is a transcribed version of the Arabic word which means “successor” or “representative”. Caliphs were often also referred to as Amīr al-Mu’minīn  “Commander of the Faithful”, Imam al-Ummah, Imam al-Mu’minīn or more colloquially, leader of the Muslims.

Whatever Durrani’s intent, it only adds to the general confusion about the true origins of our highest leader, and the true purposes of his term in office. It also adds to the general tension of the world, a world in which Persia (Iran), one of the Gog-Magog nations that is prophesied to surprise-attack Israel in the last days, again has said today they will wipe Israel from the earth. This also was prophesied. The claim was, not the actual obliteration-

Psalm 83:2-4
“For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

Ahmadinejad predicts the removal of ‘Zionists’ from the world
The hardline leader told the annual Palestinian solidarity day rally in Tehran that a popular revolt by the people of the Middle East would extinguish the Jewish homeland even if the governments reach a peace agreement. “If the leaders of the region do not have the guts, then the people of the region are capable of removing the Zionist regime from the world scene,” he said.

There will be wars and rumors of wars, days of birth pangs and calamities. There is tension and peace and attacks and tearing down of the foundations of economy, diplomacy, trade, religion, and morals. It is part of God’s plan for the last days of the end time, and our Redemption draws nigh. Look up!
