Bonding over the bismillah…..
The Arabic phrase shown above is pronounced as Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim, and is a beautifully poetic phrase which offers both deep insight and brilliant inspiration. It has often been said that the phraseBismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim contains the true essence of the entire Qur’an, as well as the true essence of all religions.
Muslims often say this phrase when embarking on any significant endeavor, and the phrase is considered by some to be a major pillar of Islam. This expression is so magnificent and so concise that all but one chapter of the Qur’an begins with the words Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim.
The common translation:
“In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate”.
fails to capture either the true depth of meaning or the inspirational message of this beautiful phrase.
Treason is defined by, “The offense of betraying one’s own country by attempting to overthrow the government through waging war against the state or materially aiding it’s enemies”. Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution specifically states that, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort”.
When Barack Obama released five-high ranking Taliban officials for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter, Obama betrayed the highest obligation of his office – safeguarding national security. This is a fact that cannot be refuted.
The President admitted this on Tuesday when a reporter asked, “Is there the possibility of some of them [The Taliban Five] returning to activities that are detrimental against the U.S.” Obama responded, “Absolutely“. Today, not even a week after their release to Qatar, one of the five Taliban leaders released confirmed Obama’s statement.
