Photo Documents Barry (Obama) Soetoro: Indonesian Citizen, Muslim Religion

with 3 comments

Check out this important story at Texas Darlin’s blog!


The AP caption reads: “This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as Islam. (AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)”

What It Means

This AP photo is compelling evidence of the following assertions, which have been set forth on this blog:

1. Barack Obama had Indonesian citizenship

2. Barack Obama had the legal name Barry Soetoro

3. Barack Obama was a Muslim, despite his “fight the smears” claim that he never has been. (see new story that we just posted on this topic).

In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when asked to provide former names, according to this Attorney’s Registration Record:

  1. I’m an Indonesian so I should give you another perspective from ‘Indonesian people’ who happened to have those similar so-called-documents. The form that you attached there is not a legal form. Anybody represent my parents could fill it out which one of my uncles did when I was in elementary school.

    Even for people who was born in foreign countries like Obama, it’s common when they got their names spelled wrong or last name put similar to their [biological / step] father. The purpose is usually “as long as you complete the form.” I’m a Christian as well, and my principal once put my religion as “Islam” in the rapport ‘document’ for years. My parents who were born Christians didn’t really care about all those mistakes that could happen in our [elementary / high school] documents. They became aware and careful when it comes to college documents.

    Believe me, when these so-called- Indonesian documents became major issues in mainstream medias, many Indonesian-American people will stand up for Obama. It’s for the sake of speaking up the truth. We don’t like people like you analyzing whatever Indonesian proofs you have against someone by using your particular point of views. Hope you could put more objective posts on your blog.

  2. Well, since you say you became “aware” of this practice, which you say is, I guess, customary in Indonesia, why would Obama claim he never was even listed as Muslim, and denies having that other name?

    If it is all so innocent and normal as you are suggesting, wouldn’t it have been normal for Obama to say that in his speeches and books? Why bother denying it? Why not just say someone in his family (if this was the case) incorrectly listed him?
