Obama and Islam.

Updated on October 2, 2014

It would be wrong to elevate Islam.

It's about time President Barack Obama break his association with the Islamic religion, in light of his saying that he is now a converted Christian, which means that he has not a smidgen of allegiance to Islam or doesn't have any sympathy for it.

His connection with Islam ended when that (conversion) happened, even long before he assumed the presidency of the United States; and though his background consisted of Islamic teachings through his father, that was supposed to be "water under the bridge" by now.

Nevertheless, his speech at the U.N. recently showered praises on both Islam and some leading Islamic personalities,which was unbecoming of a true Christian.

Historically, Islam was noted for its violence and atrocities in so many places around the world for so long, there shouldn't be any reason, however slightest, to call it "peaceful" in any manner, shape or form. The name might imply "peace", but the actions of its followers were notorious.

More so, for the brutality by ISIS presently unfolding right before our eyes in Iraq and Syria; with the beheading of two American journalists only a short while ago, made it clear that it had nothing to do, again, with peace of any kind.

With ISIS, being an ideological organization, carrying out the wishes of that ideology, it was at war with any person or persons diametrically opposed to it (ideology); and such should be beheaded, if they didn't conform or convert to Islam. In fact, its enmity was directed toward Christians and those of other faiths contrary to its (ISIS') beliefs.

In other words, he, President Obama, has ordered an air strike campaign by the U.S. military forces against ISIS in the war it (ISIS) was waging in the Middle East, with the idea of obliterating minority people, who were not in compliance with it; and to say anything slightly in favor of ISIS would invite a great deal of outrage from Christians and other religious groups in the country.

It would rather be confusing, if not egregious, for the same person to tout the religion in whose name ISIS was committing atrocious acts to innocent people, men, women and children, in that same war.

We love our president, and we wouldn't want anybody to assail him with any blame of what ISIS was doing in Iraq and Syria; here in the U.S. and/or elsewhere abroad, just because he said anything or something to elevate its (ISIS') religion, Islam.

Take note, Mr. President.

EMMANUEL BANDOH.
