Fw: Islamic prayer time at the White House

Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer service traditionally held at the Whitehouse. Now.......this.

The islamic prayer day last week at the Whitehouse.

For Obama to continue as our President is an insult
to our founding fathers (and to all Americans).

If you question the impact of the above picture,
I would suggest you get a copy of the book
The Sword of the Prophet by Serge Trifkovic.
It is well researched and documented, so is trustworthy.
Anyone who believes that 'Islam is not a major threat
to our freedom and country' has their head in the sand.
This includes Obama himself.

Of course there was no "Islamic prayer day" at the White House. Let's start with the photo. Does that look like the White House to you? Note the arches in the background. This photo was taken last April during Obama's state visit to Turkey, when Prime Minister Erdogan took him to visit some national landmarks in Istanbul, including the Blue Mosque. You can read about it on Newsweek, and if you're still not convinced the above photo was taken at the same time/place, look at this MSNBC photo, where you can clearly see the same carpet, the same suit and tie, etc.

Re Obama cancelling the National Day of Prayer service at the White House, that is true but bears some context. A law was passed in 1952 requiring the President to proclaim a national day of prayer once a year, and the law was amended in 1988 to fix the date as the first Thursday in May. Every President, including Obama, has dutifully issued such proclamations. It was only President G.W. Bush who made a regular practice of holding prayer services in the White House to mark the National Day of Prayer. President Obama has simply chosen to keep his prayers a private matter. Perhaps President Obama takes to heart the biblical admonitions against ostentatious prayer (see Matthew 6:5-6).
