His name is Barack Obama, and his messianic vision resembles that of Joachim of Fiore. At the Vatican, they’ve gone so far as to believe him. Here’s the story of a hoax with a kernel of truth
by Sandro Magister
ROME, August 23, 2010 – The tempest unleashed in recent days by Barack H. Obama’s statements on the plans of the Cordoba Institute in New York to build a mosque a few steps from the Twin Towers, knocked down on September 11, 2001 by Muslim terrorists, has brought back to the forefront the question of what is the overarching vision of the current president of the United States of America.
In the first instance, on August 13, to the hundred Muslim guests he had invited to the White House to celebrate the beginning of Ramadan, Obama said:
"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (the Taliban) has released a statement titled, "Response of the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan about Civilian Casualties Survey". Responding to a UN report "blaming the Mujahideen for most of the civilian casualties", the Taliban announced that it regards "such press releases [as] based on one-sidedness and dogmatism instead of neutrality and justification by related organizations and mainstream media outlets which not only encourage the ISAF forces to keep harassing the masses and causing further civilian deaths but also exacerbate and intensify the tragedy rather than minimizing the effect and slowing down the civilian casualties…" The Taliban proposed that "A committee, consisting of special representatives of Islamic Conference[s], UN human rights organizations, as well as representatives from ISAF forces and [the] Islamic of Emirate of Afghanistan, should be formed to assess the very issue and conduct investigations into the civilian casualties across the country."
