Did Obama send furtive hand signal to Muslim leaders?

I believe Obama to be a Muslim. So many don’t. That is fine, I’m not going to argue the many reasons why I think it is so, except to say that those reasons grow more numerous as time goes by. Another one surfaced a few days ago.

There is a hand signal Muslims give each other to signify their like mindedness. Its called the Shahada. Here is a photo of an ISIS fighter (back seat nearest camera) giving the sign.

The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the digital phalange of the middle finger. The remaining fingers are squeezed against the palm in order to highlight the extended forefinger. The extended finger is symbolic of the one-God concept of Muhammad and is understood by all believers to be a symbolic shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith: There is but one God and Muhammad is his messenger.

So here’s another photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. Barack Hussein Obama looks very much like he’s flashing the Shahada to the other Muslim leaders present.


OK. Maybe its nothing. In fact I have my suspicions regarding the authenticity of the photo. However on top of all of the other stuff, it could well be telling a true story.
