Is It Any Surprise That Even Obama’s Prayers Are Staged For Media Consumption?


Recently, Time Magazine ran an article that outlined an incident when Barack Obama visited Jerusalem. Obama wrote a prayer “in the solitude of his hotel room”, and carried it with him to Jerusalem’s Western Wall. The Western Wall is one of Judaism’s holiest sites. Jewish believers flock there and place handwritten prayers in the cracks of the wall. That’s over 1 million pieces of paper each year. Twice yearly, the prayers are gathered from the wall and buried on the Mount of Olives.

Reading these prayers is considered Taboo.

But after Obama left the sacred site, someone dug his note out and took it to a newspaper where it was later published:

Lord -

Protect my family and me.

Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair.

Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.

I admit. I was suckered. A meek and humble prayer from someone seeking God’s guidance? Even the most flawed vessels can be used by God. Maybe he’s not so bad after all.A few minutes later, additional web browsing brought me more information on this incident: “Paper, rapped for outing Obama note, claims campaign pre-approved leak.”

My stomach turned.

The article from Israel Insider Magazine opens with the truth of the matter:

What initially seemed to be a journalistic scoop of dubious moral propriety now seems to be a case of an Israeli paper being played by the Barack Obama campaign.

Yes, Senator Obama’s “private” prayer was intended all along to sucker guys like me who believe him to have an overinflated ego that can admit no fault.

Reinforcing the suspicion of his visit, the Obama campaign later released a video that contained a montage of Obama’s “prayer” at the Western Wall with church scenes, crosses, doves, and hymn music.

Politics are politics. We all know they’re dirty. But some things need to remain sacred. To me, FAITH is one of them.

Someone who is willing to throw their pastor of 20+ years under the bus the way that Obama did with Reverend Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright cannot be trusted. Barack Obama has insulted every American of Jewish faith by his mockery of “prayer” at the Western Wall.

This man doesn’t need to be sent to the White House. He needs to be sent to Sunday School.

“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.” – Matthew 6: 5-7

      He is an enemy to all of us…!!!!

      Looks like the Jews have once again handpicked our next president.

    5. Dugga on July 30th, 2008 4:45 pm

      I don’t follow you, Bob. What do you mean the Jews handpicked him? Did you read the article?

      Obama made a mockery of one of their sacred traditions.

      Or were you referring to Obama? I don’t understand your statement.

    6. bob on July 30th, 2008 7:05 pm

      As a candidate for the US presidency, Obama has pledged his unwavering support to Israel and he has made the obligatory trip to Israel’s Western Wall seen wearing a yarmulke in the presence of an orthodox Jew.

      If Obama didn’t profess allegiance to Israel, then there would be no chance of him becoming president. The last US president who opposed Israel was JFK.

      #6 bob – you are in dire need of a history lesson.

      “The last US president who opposed Israel was JFK.”
      Read JFK’s own words:

      now go ahead and cite your source(s) for JFk’s opposition.

      on a side note, I wonder why someone would be so eager to embrace this smear? Blinded by right-wing biases would be my guess.
      This whole prayer note story was “debunked” yesterday.

    8. dennisintn on July 30th, 2008 9:35 pm

      #7, who “debunked” the story? the same spokeswoman that made a fool out of herself on hannity and combs tonight by saying obama didn’t make the statement in england about not going to visit the wounded soldiers in germany because he couldn’t take his political advisor with him? she left the show abruptly during the commercial after which they were going to show the clip where he said it. why does an attorney have to have people follow along behind him telling people that he didn’t mean what we heard him say, he really stands for something else? obama is looking more and more like a cardboard cutout with speakers wired directly to the west coast ultra liberals and standing on a turntable with a different version of every stance for each point of the compass. by the way, he’s had 3 different excuses that i’ve heard for not visiting the soldiers.

      After reading the comments here and around the net, our just desserts are going to be watching those who are so angry and annoyed live the next 8 years in the U.S.A., fidgeting their frustrated fingers off as they watch the country turn around and reach a new era of success.

      This isn’t a site for dopes!!!Pissssssuuuuuuu!!!!

      #8, i have to correct part of that post. the “obama spokesman” on hannity and combs turned out to be combs’ replacement for the night. listening to her alibiing obama to carl rove, she sounded like she was having a psychotic fit of some kind. after that commercial she came back sane and sensible and rove finally got in the actual quote by obama. i have to get over the idea that i can multi-task without making errors.

      Hillary isn’t looking so bad now is she ?

    13. katablog on July 31st, 2008 8:01 am

      LOL, sorry I missed Susan Estrich walking off Hannity and Combs!

      Obama and his minions actually believe that by denying Obama said something, people should just accept it. How dare anyone challenge “the one”!

      Empty suit, shallow photo-ops and playing the race card when McCain dares to challenge him. It is Obama that is shallow yet he constantly turns the tables on us and tries to make us look like the shallow ones.

      No Obama, it’s not that you “look different” than others on the dollar bill (take a look, they all “look different” than each other), it’s not your “funny sounding name”, it’s not your skin color: it’s all about your policies (the few you make up on the fly of the moment) and friends (those you haven’t tossed under the bus).

    14. dennisintn on July 31st, 2008 8:25 am

      at least with hillary, we knew what we would have gotten, starting with frisking them when they left the v.p. residence for the last time.

    15. bob on July 31st, 2008 12:25 pm

      YoYO, JFK’s speech you cited took place well before he was president. JFK said one thing to get in office and once there, did another. He doublecrossed the powers-that-be. It’s well known that JFK wouldn’t allow Israel to have nukes.

      #8 – Here is the link with the kid that stole it (from Fox News):

      Here is the video of the kid taking it.

      Funny how Ma’ariv, the paper that allegedly said it was pre-released to them, never printed that in their own paper. They just “told” other papers that so those other papers could get the “scoop”. Yeah…right.

      katablog – and the McCainiac’s will believe anything sent to them in an e-mail or posted on a blog.
      Did you end up getting that $1500 from Bill Gates by sending that e-mail to 10 people?

    17. flippy on July 31st, 2008 1:19 pm

      #8 -
      Well, for starters, the paper that published the note denies that it received prior permission; it was “other papers” that made that claim citing an
      “UnNamed spokesmen for the paper”.

      They have also found and interviewed (though not identified) the student who apparently took the note in the first place and he denies that he had prior permission.

      A Source for the above is the same once used for this article “IsrealInsider”.

      Did Obama write the note knowing that it would be made public? Maybe, it reads like a note fit for publishing.

    18. Susy Q on July 31st, 2008 1:39 pm

      I thought it was a good prayer….I guess I’m just dense, but I didn’t see anything evil in the prayer…I don’t know why the young man pulled it out. I guess he sold it to one of the newspapers. I put a prayer in the Wall once, but doubt anyone carried it off to the press….

    19. yoyo muffintop on July 31st, 2008 2:33 pm

      #15 bob – you said nothing about “nukes” in your original post #6. Here’s what you said: “If Obama didn’t profess allegiance to Israel, then there would be no chance of him becoming president. The last US president who opposed Israel was JFK.”

      Now if you meant “nukes” then ok, JFK did watch it closely as did subsequent Presidents. They didn’t do anything, but they were concerned. But that’s not what you stated.

      JFK, March 15th, 1961:
      “Next I want to announce that the Export-Import Bank is authorizing $25 million credit in favor of the Government of Israel, to purchase agricultural machinery in the United States, to help consolidate Israel’s agricultural settlements, and electrical power equipment and construction items for the expansion of Israeli seaports.

      This decision, I think, will help speed the development of Israel’s economy.”

      #l3, kata, she didn’t walk off, i don’t think. i was just listening to the part where she was having her fit defending obama, when they cut back to them after the commercial, she was an entirely different sounding person and i just assumed, wrongly, that someone else had been doing the psycho act and had left since she was proven wrong. just a bad mistake on my part. lol, anyway, rove was right and she was wrong.

      SM: Dennis – next time you go to post on the front page look at your nickname. I’ve been fixing it again. (klaasend)
