All candidates must answer Muslim question
By Larry Klayman

It is time to finally confront the "big elephants in the elephant's room." How should Republican presidential candidates react to overwhelming recognition among the electorate that our current president is at least at heart a Muslim, having idolized his Muslim father, been educated in Islamic madrassa schools in Indonesia, among a myriad of other indicia, backed up by his actions as the commander in chief, that he sympathizes with "his faith" over Christians and Jews? I need not belabor the evidence in this column due to space limitations. The recent sham and highly dangerous deal with Iran over its nuclear weapons development is proof enough that the president sides with "his people" over not just Israel but also the rest of we real Americans.

Then there is also the issue of Barack Hussein Obama having been either not born in this country, or at least not being a natural born citizen eligible to be president. While his eligibility was an issue initially raised by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2008 election, it was Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, New York Times best-selling author Jerome Corsi and this publication that followed through and proved that indeed Obama had finally proffered a phony birth certificate – only after Donald Trump pressured him to come clean. And this issue is not just one for the history books, because at every step of the way, Obama has acted as if he hates this country, reflexively siding with foreign and Muslim interests in particular at the expense of Christians and Jews. It is ironic indeed, given Trump's position on illegal immigration, that Obama's Muslim father was deported from the United States after he violated American law by overstaying his visa. And, it is no coincidence that Obama's Muslim father despised our nation as a "colonial power."

Finally, these issues have risen to the top of the Republican primary battle. During a town hall meeting in New Hampshire Thursday evening, a Republican voter asked Donald Trump the following question:

"We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims. You know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American. ... Anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That's my question. When can we get rid of them?"

The Donald then responded:

"We are going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening. We're going to be looking at that and many other things."

Trump's response was a bit politic, but the world could glean in any event that the leading presidential candidate had not dismissed, as have all other Republicans, the lingering fears about the loyalties of Obama to this nation and to our Judeo-Christian roots and culture, upon which the Declaration of Independence and later our Constitution were conceived of, written and then implemented.

Following this exchange, as he has in the past, Gov. Chris Christie attempted to cozy up to and win accolades with mainstream media by criticizing Trump for not defending Obama's so-called Christianity. Here is what the politician had to say:

"I would correct him. I'd say that the president is a Christian and he was born in this country. Those two things are self-evident."

Christie's incredible defense of Obama, meant to pander to the mainstream media, was reminiscent of when he threw Mitt Romney under the bus by hugging the "Mullah in Chief" and praising his alleged performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the eve of the last presidential election. In light of his latest two-faced repeat performance, stick a fork in that blowhard from that mess of a state called New Jersey. Christie is "cooked" with the voters who will actually show up to vote in the Republican presidential primary. Woody Allen's line that there "is a certain order the universe except for portions of New Jersey" rings truer than ever.

But the real issue is not Christie, but a much broader one. The New Hampshire Republican voter who raised the issue of Obama's Muslim faith, deeds and eligibility did a great service; the presidential candidates need to address what our nation and the world need to do about Islam, not just so-called "radical Islam." In this regard, the Quran, the perverted equivalent of our Bible, teaches in chapter and verse that all infidels, meaning we Christians, Jews and others such as Hindus, must be eliminated from this earth as Allah, their false god, wants. Here are just a few passages:

"Prepare against them whatever force you are able to muster, and strings of horses, striking fear into the enemy of God and your enemy, and others besides them."

"Fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem [of war]. ... The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter."

As a result, anyone who practices Islam is required to adhere to these strictures. This means that all true Muslims have at a minimum a latent disdain if not hatred, like Obama, for our Judeo-Christian roots, even if they will not admit it. In effect, this helps explain why the overwhelming majority of Muslims rarely speak out against acts of terrorism, domestically and overseas, and why Obama himself has steadfastly throughout his presidency refused to link the theology of Islam generally to terrorism.

As a result, the huge presence of Muslims in countries such as Great Britain, France, Germany and now a growing presence in the United States are a ticking time bomb of violence and death toward the populace. London, England, for instance – with its huge Muslim population – is likely to explode at some point in a sea of Islamic bloodshed. It is only a matter of time, particularly with Obama's plans to allow thousands of Muslim refugees from Syria, many with ties to ISIS, to seek refuge here, that we Americans will face increasing catastrophic danger as well.

So the question posed to Trump at a town hall meeting must eventually be answered by all of the Republican presidential candidates. What do we do about Muslims in our midst and their growing presence in America? Self-serving defenses of Muslims and Obama by disingenuous hypocrites like Chris Christie will not only seal his fate with the Republican electorate, but will deep-six other candidates if they do not finally deal with these big elephant issues in their room.
