Question: Is Obama Sunni or Shiite?
Vanity | Self

Posted on 06/27/2014 6:37:26 PM PDT by gitmo

With the raging war between the Sunni and the Shiites in Iraq, and with the presidents apparent animosity toward the Iraqi government it seems important to understand if Obama has ties to the Sunnis or to the Shiites. Does anyone on FR know the answer to this?

He doesn’t have the customary Shiite mark on his forehead, so, must be Sunni.

Since his father is from Kenya, it is most likely that his father belongs to the Sunni sect.

The sunnis are the ones who tend to go full terrorist and Obama pretty much always backs them.

Shiites are pretty brutal in their own right but Sunnis are almost always the ones to blow themselves up.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Kenya

Though the majority of Kenyan Muslims are Sunni, there is a population of Kenyan Shia and Ahmadi Muslims. Approximately 73% identify themselves as Sunni, 8% Shia and 4% Ahmadi while the majority of the rest do not associate themselves with a particular group.[2] In large part, Shias are Ismailis descended from or influenced by oceanic traders from the Middle East and India. These Shia Muslims include the Dawoodi Bohra, who number some 6,000-8,000 in the country.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Indonesia

The majority adheres to the Sunni Muslim tradition mainly of the Shafi’i madhhab (99%).[2][3] There are around one million are Shias, who are concentrated around Jakarta,[4] and about 400,000 Ahmadi Muslims.[5] In general, the Muslim community can be categorized in terms of two orientations: “modernists,” who closely adhere to orthodox theology while embracing modern learning; and “traditionalists,” who tend to follow the interpretations of local religious leaders (predominantly in Java) and religious teachers at Islamic boarding schools (pesantren).

Sunni, most likely, Wahabi version of it

Obama is Muslim Brotherhood, through and through, and they are Sunni

That is why he supports ISIS, they are a MB creation

Sunnis believe that the muslim leadership is passed by vote of the council

SHiite believe it is passed by blood line, from father to son

Given a choice I’d rather deal with the Shiites. There are far fewer of them and they don’t seem to have near as much of an expansionist drive.

On the other hand, they desire the apocalypse so the Mahdi can climb up out of his well.

Islam considers dogs as haram or forbidden. But, Islam also allows deception. They also make reference to Allah the Deceiver in the Koran.

he seems to side with the most terroristic, murderous elements in any situation....you can depend on it.. he gives them political support, tons of deadly weapons, billions of American taxpayer dollars like to the “PLO” or “PA” and to his “Syrian Islamic rebels” and to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, and military training (also continuing air protection of the Iranian IslamoNazi nuclear bomb and ICBM factories)

(i think he’s probably sunni, but....it appears he doesn’t care very much which Islamic faction he supports so long as its the most violent or anti-American, anti=Christian, anti-Jewish ones available in any given place and time...)
