Did Obama say in his book Audacity of hope I will stand with the Muslims?
The actual quote from the book is from page 261 and is as follows: "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." Read the last sentence in the context of the paragraph. He is just saying that he will be with the people who have come to this country, at a crucial time when they need support.

No. Just because President Obama despises Benjamin Netanyahu and insists that Israel return stolen lands does not mean he stands with Muslims. What Obama has said on sever…al occasions was that all Americans, himself included, would stand with any nation that was committed to fighting climate change. President Obama will stand with Muslims on climate change. He also said, as did Hillary Clinton, that he was not against Muslims, but rather, he was against extremists, Zionists and terrorists. Unfortunately, there are some people who believe (without any good reason) that President Obama is secretly a Muslim or a Jew or a Republican, so they made up fake quotes that they claim "prove" he is pro-Islam or pro-Jew and anti-Christian.
If a person performs Hajj correctly, physically and mentally, it can erase all their past sins and the person starts off on a clean slate (like a baby). In terms of this life,… people get sense of peace and tranquility among other things. Usually most people are in awe when the see so many other Muslims gathered and upon seeing the Kabaa. You also learn to have patience. After returning for the Hajj, one is supposed to try to act better than did before they went. Many people change for the rest of their lives (they might develop a habit of praying extra daily prayers, for instance, and keep that habit up until they die).

"The Audacity of Hope" is the title you are looking for. Here is a quote from the book: On Abortion: Constitution is a living document; no strict constructionism … When we get in a tussle, we appeal to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution's ratifiers to give direction. Some, like Justice Scalia, conclude that the original understanding must be followed and if we obey this rule, democracy is respected. Others, like Justice Breyers, insist that sometimes the original understanding can take you only so far--that on the truly big arguments, we have to take context, history, and the practical outcomes of a decision into account. I have to side with Justice Breyer's view of the Constitution--that it is not a static but rather a living document and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world. I see democracy as a conversation to be had. According to this conception, the genius of Madison's design is not that it provides a fixed blueprint for action. It provides us with a framework and rules, but all its machinery are designed to force us into a conversation. Source: The Audacity of Hope, by Barack Obama, p. 89-92 Oct 1, 2006
None. Contrary to internet myths, he was not raised with the Muslim faith. In fact, his father had long since left Islam; plus Mr. Obama only saw his dad on a couple of occasi…ons in his life, and his dad was an atheist by that time. While his paternal grandparents were Muslims, he had no contact with that side of the family till he visited Kenya in the late 1980s. He attended a Catholic school in Indonesia when he briefly lived there with him mom and step-dad, and then attended a public school that was run by moderate Muslims and had students from a number of religions, including the children of American diplomats doing business in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was mainly raised by his mother's side of the family-- his maternal grandparents were Protestant Christians, and that is what they exposed him to.
No, not at all. He attended a Catholic school there and then a public school. He was never raised Muslim. His step-father was a moderate Muslim, but did not impose the religio…n on him.
He's not Muslim; he's a Christian and was baptized at the Trinity United Church of Christ. Please see the Related Link for an article detailing his religion. Conservatives… keep alleging that he is hiding something such as his true religion (which he has discussed candidly) or his birth certificate (which he eventually revealed) and numerous other aspects of his person. This is a ploy to "disqualify" him on technical grounds as opposed to actual policy, because if they treated Obama like the proper American he is, they might have to acknowledge that America produces liberals too.
No, he is not. There are several internet myths that try to link the president with such groups, but these assertions are totally false.
No. President Obama does not profess to be a Muslim nor does he follow Muslim practices. His father was raised as a Muslim , as was his Indonesian step-fathers, but Barack Oba…ma was not raised as a Muslim and after he became an adult, he and his wife joined a Christian denomination (United Church of Christ) in Chicago.
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." Barack Hussain Obama
Audacity, audacity, always audacity!
No, this is an internet myth, based on an intentional misquote of something the president did say, that he would be a voice for diplomacy and seek out partners for peace in wh…atever countries they could be found; he also said he would welcome new immigrants, whether they were Muslim or Christian or any other religion, because America is a country of diversity. But he never said he "stands with the Muslims" nor did he say that he was a Muslim.
Did Obama say you will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction?
No, this is a fake quote that was circulated on conservative websites; it was made up to try to persuade you that the president is a secret Muslim. He is not; he is an America…n and a Christian. The fake quote was supposedly from one of the president's books, but when fact-checkers looked at both "Dreams from my Father" and "The Audacity of Hope," they found no such quote, nor anything even close to it.
A Muslim will love to say or recite Kalima Tayyab, "There is no god except Allah, and Mohammad (peace be upon him) is the last messenger of Allah" as his last words whil…e leaving from this mortal world.
Audacity is a free audio editor that was developed by The Audacity Team. It can import/export many file extensions (WAV, AIFF, MP3, Ogg Vorbis) and with extensions of the pr…ogram you can even import/export (FLAC, AAC, AMR, AC3). You can easily cut, copy, paste, delete and crop audio files quite easily with your easy-to-use tools. You can even make use of the VST Enabler, which enables you to use VST/VSTi. You can split audio files and apply basic effects to the files such as pitch/tone/amplitude/noise-maker. If you add in extensions/plug-ins to the software, you can also make use of Nyquist. Audacity is a great free program to get you started on audio-editing/producing. You have to keep in mind, however, that the program is rarely intended for professional use. It is a basic program that serves many needs but will not suffice when one would like to record and produce audio files professionally.
Yes and no. This is a very old question, from back in 2008. Then-candidate Obama was explaining that some of his Republican opponents were spreading rumors about him, saying h…e was a Muslim-- he is not and never was a Muslim. But in the interview, Obama was trying to praise John McCain (his opponent) for not joining in the false claims-- it is clear from the context, and from the video itself, that he was trying to debunk the rumor, and when he referred to "my Muslim faith," it was in the context of saying McCain doesn't ever make such an accusation, and doesn't believe the Muslim rumors. But Stephanopoulis seems to have misunderstood and thought Obama had made a gaffe. Obama's opponents jumped on it too, took a snippet of the interview out of context and used it to claim Obama "admitted" he was a Muslim. He did not. I enclose a link to the story and to the video, so you can see for yourself.
No, he did not. This is another example of an internet rumor, started by the president's political opponents to make it seem that he was anti-American and pro-Muslim. First, t…here is nothing wrong with being a Muslim. Mr. Obama is not a Muslim and has never been one, but he has Muslim relatives in Africa (he met them in 1989 when he visited for the first time) and he respects their religion. He is a Christian, and yet some people keep questioning his faith. Having been friends with Michelle Obama's cousin (a famous rabbi) for several decades, I've asked him about Mr. Obama's religion, and he verified that the Obamas are in fact Christians, but they are respectful of all religious traditions. That said, all over the internet, there are misquotes, fake quotes, and distorted quotes from people trying to prove some political point. In this case, people who obviously never read either of the president's books have invented a quote to "prove" he is sympathetic to Islam. Fact-checkers thoroughly examined his books, and there is no such quote anywhere in either book. Also, fact-checkers examined speeches he made, and there is no such quote there either. The fake quote you are referring to is a distortion of page 261 of "The Audacity of Hope," in which Mr. Obama is talking about the need to avoid suspicion of people of who are different; after 9/11, some people became suspicious of ALL Muslim-Americans, and he is saying that just because someone comes from an Arab country (he mentions Pakistan, for example), that does not necessarily mean we should assume the worst about them. And he says that if a time comes when he sees people being discriminated against because of their race or ethnicity, he will stand with them. That is all it says.
