The lord of Obama’s ring (media's typical absence on sensational story)

Exclusive: Joseph Farah points out media's typical absence on sensational story

Let’s face it. What we don’t know about Barack Obama could fill volumes.

Yet, here he is after spending four years in the White House and facing re-election – still an enigma.

It’s not just Obama’s tendency toward secrecy and control of information that is at fault. It’s also a deep, deep institutional problem within the media – both the big corporate press and the so-called alternative press. There are certain stories they just won’t cover. There are certain avenues they will just not explore. There are certain subjects just too sensitive to pursue.

This week, we found another one that strikes right at the core of Obama’s very identity – and the many contradictory stories he has told about his life.

That is the amazing and sensational tale of Obama’s ring.

Inscription on Obama's ring

It’s a ring he wears on the finger generally reserved for wedding bands. It looks like a wedding band. But he has worn it at least since his days at Occidental College, through his years at Columbia and Harvard, where it became something of a joke and puzzlement among his classmates. It’s the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. He continues to wear it today.

Now, a detailed WND study of images of the ring by Arabic-language and Islamic experts reveals it is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.”

The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet.

Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole

Obama is a secularist with Muslim sympathies and uses Christianity for political cover.

Everyone knows this,
but the MSM has twisted the issue such that if any one tries to connect Obama to Islam, they are instantly branded as a nut or a racist (even though Islam is not a race).

I don’t need to see a ring to prove this.

Doc,

No offense intended, but if you knew this, others, including those in power, also knew. That begs the question: Why was he permitted to get as far as he has?

Personally I think this is probably true, but needs to be verified from multiple sources.

HOWEVER, this is way too hot to touch. The fake birth certificate is well established from multiple sources and they won’t touch it. This much much hotter.

The media will NOT touch this no matter what.

Sorry, but no.

Here's the grainy, shadowy, low-def photograph WND uses to 'find' the Arabic, and just what Arabic it finds:

Here's a high-def photo of the ring:

Notice how WND uses even shadows to 'find' the Arabic. The ring's design is undulating continuous lines, not Arabic script.

There are too many things Obama has done and is doing to be led astray by this story.

Thanks. I haven't been following this story but clearly, they are just squiggles.

This is like the islamic nuts who found arabic writing in some pudding label.

I think the style is supposed to be rugged and handmade looking.

The question posed was relative to information known in 2007. If it was known to Doc then, it was known by others. Why was he not stopped at that time?

What we don’t know about Barack Obama could fill volumes. And what we do know about him makes him dagerous and unelectable.

WND does more harm than good. For every one good story they can break, they have 5-10 stories that are pure conspiracy theory nutcase stories.

... study of images of the ring {worn by Obama} by Arabic-language and Islamic experts reveals it is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.”

Maybe when Biden brings up his great concern for the 'rights of women', Ryan can talk about the REAL war being waged against women. Ryan can ask Biden about Obama's ring... and about how a child was shot last week for wanting an education in a Muslim country. How does Biden feel about that .... Why are democrats standing against Israel?

I notice that some nobody at “urban legends” is now a so-called expert on Arabic calligraphy, and that a good many FReepers are buying his take that the ring just has “squiggles” on it.

Never mind. Just move along.

I'm going to link to a number of variations on Arabic calligraphy that read either “there is no god but Allah” or just “Allah.

Now take a good look at them. Compare them to the “squiggles” on Zero's ring. I'm not an expert on Arabic calligraphy, but I'm pretty sure that that bottom “squiggle” could most certainly be “Allah.”

Take a look and be the judge for yourself. The Blaze consulted a real academic expert at Duke, who confirmed the inscription. I'll take that over some self-appointed know-it-all on "urban legends."

Fair enough.

Let me send one more example, and if you're not convinced, you're just not convinced.

Here's an inscription for “Allah” in a Syriac script:
