Kamal Saleem in Transformation Michigan/Oak Initiative Conference Call: Obama Wants Shariah Law
What are the sources of the narratives in which President Obama is a Muslim and/or Marxist? No doubt there are many, but one source that is promoting this message across the nation is the Oak Initiative. This is a relatively new religio-political entity co-founded in 2009 by Rick Joyner, Samuel Rodriguez, and others, which now claims to have a presence in all 50 states and played a leadership role in TheCall Detroit.
Transformation Michigan, an affiliate of the Oak Initiative, featured Kamal Saleem in a pre-TheCall Detroit conference call about the dangers of Islam. Saleem told participants that President Obama wants to “bring about Shariah law.” Saleem and Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William Boykin, an Oak Initiative board member, traveled throughout Michigan speaking about the “Islamization of America” in preparation for last weekend’s TheCall Detroit. In 2010, the Oak Initiative produced a video in which Boykin claimed that the nation under President Obama is also in the grips of a Marxist insurgency.
The Oak Initiative productions include several videos of Saleem as well as other anti-Islamic media. The Oak Initiative has been partnering with Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy in promoting anti-Shariah law legislation at the state level.
As noted in my previous article, Saleem was prominently featured in 24-hour TheCall Detroit this past weekend. In a “reconciliation” ceremony, Saleem repented of his claimed terrorist past and of his previous hatred of Christians and Jews, which apparently impressed some audience members who were perhaps unaware of the purpose of these choreographed displays of contrition. (See video of this ceremony taken by Wayne Besen of Truth Wins Out.)
