Where Was Obama Really Born?

The question of Barack Hussein Obama's true place of birth is still not-so-quietly percolating.
World Net Daily's Joseph Farah has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who can prove that he or she was present at Obama's birth.

"Barack Obama claims to have been born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961," explains Farah. "His entire constitutional claim to the presidency rests on this premise. Yet, he refuses to release a copy of his long-form birth certificate – the only document that could possibly corroborate his claim. Therefore, in the interest of truth, justice and the Constitution, I am making the extraordinary offer to entice someone to come forward with the facts of his birth – whether it took place in Hawaii or elsewhere."
On the other hand, you would think that the Governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, would have scoped out the facts on Obama's birth certificate way back during his campaign (especially since she is Republican), so it seems unlikely that he could have gotten away with such a fraud as a forged Hawaiian birth certificate.

On FactCheck an article was written one year ago supposedly proving that Obama's birth certificate is authentic. However, yesterday the Nebraska StatePaper wrote an article requesting Obama to produce a certified copy of his original birth certificate (yes, I know, it is Nebraska, but. . .)




I guess it's like that old Clairol commercial from the '50s; only his hairdresser knows for sure. . .

As a Jew, this sort of suspicion makes me very uncomfortable. By suggesting that Obama's birth certificate is fake, and spreading it on the web, we are guilty of (excuse the term) massive lashon harah. By hinting, as some do, that he is just a Muslim plotting to help his Arab friends take hold of the USA we are doing just what the Russians did to us by writing the Protocol of the Elders of Zion. It is just something I don't understand and can't agree with.

Ilanadavita: The suspicion is based on the evidence presented in light of the law of the land, which happens to be that the president can only be born in the United States. People were trying to verify this to make sure that Obama is eligible.

This is not racism, nor is it akin to the Protocols (which you had mentioned), which is a pack of lies based on nothing but antisemitism; this question was based on the birth certificate which Obama presented, which was not the long-form authentic one.

I also said in my post that FactCheck seems to have proved that he was born in the United States.

I do not consider this "lashon hara;" I personally believe in 'government in the sunshine,' where meetings, statements and decisions can be scrutinized by the media and the public.

If the prohibition against 'lashon hara' refers to gossip, I agree with it; this situation is not 'gossip.' It is an attempt to discover the truth.

Ilanadavita: Sorry; meant to say that FactCheck seems to have "proven..."
