Does Obama's Wedding Ring Say 'No God But Allah'? No.

By October 11, 2012

Follow me on:

obama ring no god but allah

"If anyone has any doubt Obama is Muslim," writes Where's the Birth Certificate? author Jerome Corsi in a Facebook blurb announcing his latest hit-job, "read this article. He has worn for 30 years a ring with a face in Arabic script reading 'There is no God but Allah' — the first half of the Shahada, the only prayer a person needs to recite to convert to Islam."

As you can see in the graphic above, Corsi purports to discern Arabic writing on the ornamental surface of Obama's ring.

I have a high-resolution image that says otherwise.

What it really says is, ” One Ring to Rule Them All…”

One Ring to rule them all – forged for the Dark Lord in Lord of the Rings so Obama is demonic

With or without the ring Obama is demonic.

I think it’s hilarious that this is described as a “wedding ring” that he’s worn for 30 years when everyone watching the Great Debate knows that he and Michelle were just celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary!

and his opponent wears a ring that says, “when I die, I’ll get to be a savior on some other planet”
What nonsense. The World Weekly News lives on!

I am just SO sick of the LIARS who concoct nonsense like that! Islamic wedding ring — add that to their never-ending list of bigoted LIES. I don’t care if you vote for Obama or not, but these LIES are WAY beyond shameful!

A failed mid-east policy based on placating and apologizing to violent barbarians. Could this be an attitude problem?


Arabic-language and Islamic experts “the gold band Obama has been wearing on his wedding-ring finger for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith”

October 11, 2012 at 5:46 pm
(9) Sam Sewell says:

It never was a wedding ring. It is a statment of islamic faith. Who knows if he is actually a Muslim. We all know he is a Muslim sympathizer.

Is a fact that lies just eat away creibility. To promise 12 million jobs, as an example, is not different than what our President promised before 2008, that was also a promise and was his goal. What is a fact and people seem
to have very little memory is what happened right before 2009. A theory
that has not been considered (none other fits…) is that by August 31/2008
our American Financial Institutions were ok counting with a money surplus.
By midnight the Extraterrestrials landed on earth and just took all the money
away so, Sept. 1st. came up and we were told that America just became a
wanna-be banana country.
Any educated mind would easily realize that any promises made prior to
such “historical” disappearance became just an impossible dream…
And about that both parties will work together just by changing the Leader,
well, just take a look of what their party had done already for 4 years. Are
they counting with the Extraterrestrials bringing the mony back????????
Wish they would had work together NOW, so I’d believe. Only God can
save America from politicians and religions who just added confusion.-

Hello all,
I always knew there was something ODD about ODUMMA, now i know for sure!! someone needs to seriously Post This To FaceBook and see how many likes they get. I know for one i would Click “Like” Someone in the comments mentioned that michelle & ODUMMA celebrated their 20th anniversary, or what ever, well here is what the deal is: He has to make it look good, and since his ring is inscribed with the words: “THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH” and then when they couldn’t find or figure out where he was born, and come to find out it wasn’t even in the United States, Now i always thought if you were gonna be President i thought you had to be born in the United States?? and wake-up people he wasn’t so how did he even get in the white house to begin with?? I guess all his Relatives who are related like Sudaam Hussein, OSama bin Laden, and all of those other TERRORISTS in those foreign countries. ODUMMA knew right where they were all this time, so if you think about it are those Terrorists THE GREAT MILITARY OF THE UNITED STATES Killed were they really who they say they were or did ODUMMA have a hand in that also?? Let’s all Pray he doesn’t get in again, Imean we are in bad shape now, but if he gets in again we are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Screwed!!!!

We don’t need the ring to tell us, it is obvious that Obama is a Kenyan-born, Muslim, Marxist, bisexual liar who is destroying our country. Go fact check this, it’s all true.

I think these comments in the ‘we hate Obama’ mould are disgusting and should not be ‘published’ anywhere. They are offensive in the extreme – and libellous. And I am a born-again Christian.

Question for Sam, Tony and Reaper – do you guys usually use Reynolds Tinfoil to make your hats or are you OK with the generic Supermarket brands?

The article makes me wish to ask, “so what if it did say that?”

Good grief people, are you really that unschooled ignorant and downright fearful that you would actually believe that ALL Muslims are equals of the Taliban?
I was born and raised Catholic, but am having a real hard time believing that my beliefs in any way would be compared to, or misconstrued by your own pithy beliefs.

Fact: “God is”…

God does not care about the simple semantics of the name/title “God”
From “Abba” to “Zur”, there is no distinction between calling the entity God, Allah, Buddha, Jehovah, etc etc etc…

Read. Comprehend. The rest, as they say, is easy.

@MerryMarjie…30 years is exactly the point. He wore it ten years before he was married. And, it’s the same ring Michelle placed on his finger when they were wed. Hence, 30 years…10+20=30. Pretty simple math. But, for those hell bent on defending this fraud, it’s hard to deal with facts. All one needs to do is look at the size of the lapel pins on this administration. One can hardly recognize them as our beloved red, white & blue Stars & Stripes American Flag. If elected to one more term, those unrecognizable pins will serve to symbolize the soon to be unrecognizable America my and many others’ relatives fought and died for to keep us a free nation which BHO is determined to destroy.

Urban Legends altered these pictures so it just looks like squiggles instead of writing. See the original Getty photo of the ring here:

Tom – Flag pins? Really? Do the voices in your head ever tell you to shut the $#@% up?

(20) Green Eagle says:

Fooled again through your own hatred, huh, right wingers?

The picture of the ring that supposedly has the Arabic writing on it is a patent Photoshop forgery, using the clone tool and then having a blur filter applied to hide any minor inconsistencies.

In the readily available high resolution image of the real ring, you can see that the decorations are made of thin gold wires of a consistent diameter. The jerk who made the photo that Corsi used clearly just cloned little parts of the wire to make it look like the Arabic letters.

People who fell for this story really need to do some thinking about what they are up to, and how they are being manipulated.

God himself spelled out “Allah” which means God in Arabic from the western border of Africa to the borders or land mass of Indochina. It reads when looking at the map with the South of the earth on top, l W d, which is ALH in Arabic which spells “Allah”. Read it from right to left as in Arabic. Read it and weep for God to forgive you. Arabic Christians also use “Allah” for the word God in the Arabic Bible.

its ridiculous when liberals “take offense” to posters talking bad about thre president. what a bunch of p*ssies. you are all “so trusting” it f*cking offends me. how about that? I am offended by how trusting and sheepily willing you are to side with a band of criminals led by a charming rat who reads everything off a damned pre-screened screen of a screen of a screen, then vote for him again happily forgetting the evils he has already unveiled for our future. just cause you like the “image” the pretty black-man-rising thing, the great mediator, (false) the open transparent whitehouse (false), the peace president (False) wont raise taxes (2008-false) the Shyster (NDAA)… come on people, its time to confront your inner-sheep, bleating in the night “Oh Baaaah Maaaahh” thats what you wanted. the screen man. you only see him on the screen, he only reads off the screen

God has a plan he will move Obama anywhere he wants him to be.
What everybody didn’t see is that this is not a game and its not a War because there is no contest, Obama is just a piece of God’s plan that has been moved into place. Be careful not to insult your Creator ability to do what he wants. He loves us all but hates those who do wrong.

I recognize that foul script. It is a Morgul script from the darkest depths of Mordor. The ring is one of the nine rings given to mortal men. That ring marks Obama as a Nazgul!
