Obama’s Brother, ‘Best Man,’ Dons Hamas Regalia

There's a photo of President Obama's brother on the Barack Hussein Obama Foundation website, sporting a graphically anti-Israel Hamas keffiya

You can say what you want about not being your brother’s keeper, but if you are the President of the United States, your closest living relative is fair game for public comment.

So here’s the issue:

President Obama’s brother appears on the website of the Barack H. Obama Foundation – named for their mutual father – in a Hamas keffiya emblazoned with the words, in Arabic, “Jerusalem is ours – we are coming!”

The keffiya also includes a map which purports to be of “Palestine.” On the map, the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River are outlined in blue, beneath which is written the Palestinian Arab war cry: “From the River to the Sea!”

In other words, Malik Obama appears to support the eradication of the Jewish State by its Arab enemies. The caption of the picture identifies Obama as being at a conference in Yemen in 2010.

That is worth noting.

There are other facts to be taken into consideration.

President Barack Obama and this brother, Obon’go Malik Obama, did not even know each other growing up, but during a nearly 20 year span the two played significant roles in each other’s lives.

Malik Obama was the best man at the 1992 wedding of Barack and Michelle Obama. Barack Obama returned the honor at one of Malik Obama’s weddings. For some reason, the president refers to Malik as Roy.

In an interview that ran in GQ this past summer, Malik Obama vacillates between emphasizing the closeness between the brothers (he insists in his culture there is no such thing as “half-brother”) and covering up for an obvious distance measured by more than miles.

The interview is painful to read, this older Obama brother is both elevated and humiliated by how much his father’s namesake has accomplished, and how little the first born has to show for himself.

The GQ interview went into some detail about the Barack Hussein Obama Foundation which Malik runs, and the fact that no one seems to be able to point to a single project or widow it has aided. However, the author did not comment on the appearance on the website of Malik Obama decked out in a Hamas scarf.

The Foundation – named for the shared father, not his more famous brother – did draw some attention this past year.

The Barack Obama Foundation was in the news because although for years its solicitations to donors stated it was certified as a tax-exempt organization under the U.S. tax code, no application to the Internal Revenue Service had ever been made, let alone was approved.

And despite this past spring’s enormous clamor over the IRS logjamming and inappropriately delaying politically conservative organizations – and even completely stonewalling a pro-Israel organization‘s tax-exemption application for more than four years now – the problem with the BHO Foundation was remedied and its tax-exempt status was approved and even backdated in record time.

Points worth noting. Not conclusive of anything, but newsworthy.

  1. Last I checked, none of us was our brothers’ keeper. So who cares?

  2. This does concern me, although I was surprised to read of Obama’s Jewish half-brother who lives in China.

  3. So everyone knows Obama is either a Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer!

  4. I wear a keffiya often. I says Am Yisrael Khai and has tzitzit tied into it. Shemspeed.com.

  5. So invigorating to read something that is actually true about the Muslim connection.

  6. Allen Miller says:

    Screw the whole Obama family!

  7. Yes. And some president's brother went wee on a runway and had a beer named after him. And some president's brother was involved in questionably legal financial dealings. And some president's brother had mistresses and maybe shared one of them with the president. And what do they all have in common? That their antics were irrelevant to the performance of their president brothers.

  8. Dan Silagi says:

    This, of course, proves Barack Obama is a Muslim and he was born in Kenya. Just ask Pamela Geller.

  9. Debbie Ryan says:

    Screw you! You are a racist. I no longer intend to follow your crap!

  10. Dan I hope they still teach better rhetoric than that in Hyde Park. This article very carefully reported on the limitations of the significance of the facts it was reporting. Why not answer the point the article actually made, rather than creating a straw man, knocking it down, and then patting yourself on the back?

  11. oh i dunno — passing women back and forth between the prez and his bro might actually make a difference, just like dating mobsters' girlfriends, or drug addicts, might be a bad idea. Having a brother who publicly advocates for the destruction of one of the United States' strongest allies is a little odd and worthy of comment, and the article didn't say any more than that.

  12. Dan Silagi says:

    Debbie, I was being sarcastic. Pamela Geller is a "birther" who writes a column for this piece of electronic bird cage liner. So if you want to screw someone, screw her.

  13. Dan Silagi says:

    Louie, your idiocy doesn't deserve comment.

  14. Dan Silagi says:

    You just unwittingly solved the mystery of who killed the Kennedys, and why.

  15. Before the end of his term Barry Soetoro aka Hussein Obama will declare America a nation under Islam and declare himself a Muslim.

  16. Simcha Arona says:

    President Obama you need to address this a.s.a.p. Your half brother is aligned with terrorists with American and Jewish blood on their hands.

  17. Alan Kardon says:

    Anyone see this in the Mainsteam media? Is any organization checking out these statements? Are the pictures actual or forgeries?

  18. Why is anyone surprised by any of this? BHO is a lying POS more blatantly out for himself than any before him. Covering his ass and lying to America has always been his style. The scary fact that the popular press is mute is more dangerous in the long run, if we have a long run. But after all it's OLD NEWS.

  19. Edward Lobel says:

    while you ae entitled to your opinion, your opinion makes you look as ignorant as everybody already knows you to be!

  20. Edward Lobel says:

    this only proves you are an idiot and now everybody knows it!

  21. Don Mcglaun says:

    ur right. the pres brother is irrevelant to obama's abysmal performance in office!!! however, their politics seem to agree with each others. which means a big problem for Israel!!!

  22. Dan Silagi I did? Who?

  23. Dan Silagi says:

    Michael D Blum Who was the ex-husband of Marilyn Monroe? He got a lot of hits, and had a 56-game hitting streak in 1941, which nobody else has even approached. But those two hits stand out. Just sayin'

  24. Dan Silagi says:

    I'm sorry you can't tell sarcasm if it bit you on your butt. It's none of your damned business but I voted for Obama as did my wife.

  25. there's a dangerous lunatic in the white house. there are no other issues. that's the issue.

  26. Dan Silagi Joltin Joe? Say it ain't so.

  27. Dan Silagi says:

    All kidding aside, I believe both Kennedys were murdered by the Mob for a lot of sins (such as JFK shacking up with the goumada of Sam Giancana, the Capo di tutti Capos of Chicago). But that's not such a bad theory, is it?

  28. Edward Lobel says:

    Dan Silagi Sorry Dan, but generally I can tell sarcasm (I'm a master at using sarcasm myself) but for some reason your post seemed genuine to me. Perhaps it was because it was on this ultra conservative sight and I mistook it for genuine comment.. Knowing what it now is, I agree with you!

  29. Aldo Mimoun says:

    You don't really say that President Obama is guilty by association of supporting Hamas. The President O is not a big fan of Israel. However I will not label as a pro hamas. He might be his brother's keeper but not his brother's advisor on politics.

  30. Isael has one thing no one else has, Mosad. When ever he travels isure that you have a welcoming committee waiting for him in the middle east, it sounds like he needs some social advice on how to live in the region.

  31. Edward Lobel Now, look who is an idiot! An btw, why you trolling this site? Find some other place to spit your hate!

  32. Gail Lobock Dupre' says:

    Interesting how much they are alike…but then, the religion of the father is the religion of the children, according to Islam…

  33. Doug Gallant says:

    You are so right Gail

  34. Edward Lobel says:

    it is you who are an idiot! I admit when I make mistakes and if you read the comment I responded to, you would not only understand why I responded but that I was commenting on someone else's hatred. Unlike you I do not hate and only try to point out when someone else speaks hatred. Someone like you!

  35. Edward Lobel says:

    Guess Michael D Blum doesn't understand sarcasm (LOL)

  36. Joseph Colen says:

    So why did you liberal Jews go after Hitler 's friends. They were only his friends and you judged them unjustly then. What kind of stupidity is this? Come on you liberals and wake up.

  37. Jerusalem belongs to Israel as its capital. Not only that, the Holy Jerusalem for Jehovah.
